Both parties have chartered fast aircraft that can use small for Prime Minister Trudeau and Robert Stanfield. The New Democrats' Bum Air II will operate in the last three weeks of the this time with a turbosprop 50-miles-an-hour faster than the Dart Herald used by leader David Lewis in the federal election. The Conservatives say their DC-9 will cost for the 35 campaign days they think they will be using the aircraft. Journalists accompanying Mr. Stanfield will pay a seat for the entire tour. Figuring that there will be about 30 journalists occupying some of the 57 seats on the Conservative the press will pay to follow Mr. Stanfield across the country. v The Liberals have a different configuration for their with 72 to 45 of these for the media. Liberals say the media will be expected to pay about a seat for a flying campaign of between 35 and 40 days. The exact amount is not final yet. The media also will pay each for four days and three nights on a train with Mr. Trudeau. The New Democrats say they will pay between and for their 250-mile- a-hour aircraft. They say the press probably will pay about each for 25 seats available. Fortunately for the politicians and journalists who will spend much time for the next couple of months on these there appears little likelihood of strict anti- terrorist security. For a time nobody was sure whether all passengers and all baggage would be searched for terrorist weapons at each stop. Arrangements are reported to have been made to make such time-consuming operations Conservatives say. The Conservatives estimate their entire campaign will cost about about the same as in the 1972 election. They say the election ex- penses legislation would have permitted about that level of expenditure if it were law for this election campaign. The which calls for disclosure of sources of party becomes law Aug. 1. Of the Con- servatives figure that will be spent on the campaign tour. By far the greatest single expenditure would be million for advertising. The Liberals have not said how much they expect to spend. The New Democratu spend much less than the two major parties. Election TV debate proposed OTTAWA A national television debate among the leaders of the four major political parties in the federal election campaign has been proposed by the a corporation spokesman said Friday. New Democratic and Social Credit officials said their parties have endorsed the idea in principle. Conservative sources said they would like to see the debate format before deciding. The CBC proposal made at a meeting Thursday is to be dis- cussed again next week when party officials present their proposals for a debate format. An hour-long debate among the four major political leaders was held on the CBC and CTV television networks in the 1968 federal election campaign. OTTAWA Talks be- tween the treasury board and the RCMP over the salaries of the latter are continuing while members of the force discuss the possibility of creating some other form of wage negotiation. A treasury board spokesman said Friday he has no idea when agreement will be reached on new wages for the force. They will be retroactive to April 1. In the meantime force members have the inflation increase recently granted to all public servants by the board. Throughout the force there are discussions on possible creation of an association that would negotiate such things as salaries and working conditions with senior management. Meetings have been held in Vancouver and Ottawa to consider the idea and others are to be held in Halifax and elsewhere. Under the present system the only input force members have in wage negotiations are discussions held each December between elected representatives of divisions and senior officers. These officers then must go before the treasury board to Kettles raise lead levels TORONTO Boiling wa'ter rn electric kettles greatly increases lead concentration in Toronto's medical health officer says. The acceptable standard for suspended lead is 50 parts per billion. review all salaries. Many per- who seek an this staff representation system has failed and they want the right to bargain on an equal footing with senior management. One elected representative would be directly involved in wage talks at the bargaining table under a proposal given last week by officials as an alternative to creating an association or union. This proposal was one of a package of 14 suggestions pre- sented by the top officials at a specially-called meeting. The meeting had elected representatives and commanding officers of each division here for two days to discuss grievances and the possibility of forming an association. It was called in reaction to considerable publicity given to RCMP grievances plus talk of an association. The new proposals appear to be little more than a slight ex- pansion of the present system of elected representation. Another meeting was set for May 30 to give elected repre- sentatives time to take them to divisions for explanation to members. It is reported that they are receiving a cool reception among many of the approximately RCMP personnel in the Ottawa area. The proposals provide for at least two meetings a year be- tween elected representatives and senior officials here. One representative would be in on wage talks and one would sit as an observer on promotion board meetings in Ottawa. All division representatives would be directly involved in any affecting the per- welfare and dignity cf the But these representatives have this division representatives should consult with the commanding officer before making any information releases to the side the force. If he is die- satisfied with the results he may contact the commu- nications The communications a position created only two weeks is like an official ombudsman who can travel throughout the force explaining management policy. The proposals say this of the communications part of the commissioner's will communicate up- wards and downwards and ob- tain information from head- quarters directorates. He will get problems to the commis- sioner. He shall have direct access to and may attend selected policy planning board sessions and pay and promotion meetings as is necessary. He shall travel to and from divisions and attend meetings as DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Mechanic Capitol Bktg. 320-7084 WANTED SCRAP IRON Now Paying More For All Types Of Scrap Metal Farm Industrial Anything Made of IRON Truck Crane Service National Salvage Company LIMITED NEW LOCATION 206-33rd Street North Phone 328-1721 is Our LETHBRIDGE CONSTITUENCY N.D.P.
