Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 22, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Tue.doy, May 22, 1973 THE IETHBRIDGE HIRALD 19 PREMIER BARRETT: B.v DAVE SHNAIDER VICTORIA (CP) Premier Dave Barrett enters a new phase in his political career with a trip to Europe this tnicnlh. Mr. Barrett has always been at home on the hustings but the European trip will see him hob- nobbing with Queen Elizabeth, West German Chaincellor Willy Trip to Europe marks new phase in career of B.C.'s people politician Brandt, foreign ministers and representatives of giant eco- nomic concerns. But there's little'doubt that the premier will feel at ease in the new surroundings. He usu- ally travels New Democratic Party ex- through B.C.; but on a recent tour relished any first- class treatment he was given. On his tour of provincial NDP ridings, Mr. Barrett, for the most part, tried to appear as the representative of the people who elected him last August. Speaking at banquets and pub- lic meetings, he often stripped to his shirtsleeves, took off his tie and tried to make the scene as informal as possible. MADE WITTY SPEECHES He was witty and laced his speeches with many butt of most of them being the Social Credit and the Progres- sive Conservative parties. Only two hecklers turned up at the largest public meeting of the Prince and there were none at another large public meeting in Revel- stoke. Mr. Barrett's performance contrasted sharply with that of his predecessor in the last few years of Social Credit's 20-year administration Former premier W. A. C. bennett used to tour the prov- ince in a Cadillac, escorted by the RCMP. Premier Barrett avoided po- lice escorts, rode in rented cars, cars driven by party faith- ful, bummed a lift from Castle- gar to Nelson in a car rented by a reporter and everywhere he declared an end to the ''Cadil- lac caravan." CHANGE OF STYLE For his trip to the world's fi- nancial capitals, Mr. Barrett is definitely not going second class. He plans te stay in the best hotels in New York, Lon- don and Paris and is taking along three aides. Meetings are planned with three American investment firms in New York, the British treasury secretary, the foreign ministers of France and Aus- tria, the Austrian finance minis- ter, the top men in Hawker-Sid- deley and the British Steel Corp., the Queen and British Labor party Leader Harold Wil- son. Pretty impressive for a for- mer social worker from Van- couver's east end. New uniforms uniforms hove been designed for the hostesses ai Ontario Place in Toiorvfo when it reopened Saturday.

Defeai of the Liberal minority government would bring on a fall election. The betting on parliament hill is that Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and his administration will survive Hie votes on the corporate tax cut despite the JNew Democratic Parly's reiter- ated determination to vote against the measure Finance Minisier .John Turner will outline his nrcposed corpo- rate and personal income tax cuts bill to fhe cabinet at a meeting Tuesday. T'1? resa'iar nneefms of the cabinet is usually held on the meeting has been scheduled for Tuesday because Prime Minis- ter Trudeau will be busy with the three das conference with the provincial premiers starting Wednesday ?.Iay 23. Out of thai Tuesday cabinet meeting Mr Turner expscts to get the OK to introduce the re- quired way.-, and iiisans nio.ion on Wednesday. That motion has to be inuoduced a -d passed be- fore the finance minister can in- troduce his one big taxation bill. It is understood that Mr. Turner has an omnibus bill in- corporating the corporate tax cuts and personal income tax en's. That measure will probably go the commons the week of May 27. With ihat bill before the house the battle will be joined. The NDP have soid they will vote against corporate tax cuts ?s set Out in the February budget. Progressive Conservative Leada- Robert Stanfield has de- clared his parlv will only sup- port corporate tax cuts if there is a one-year limitation on the bill Mr. Turner has rejected tiiat compromise Ever since this parliament opened early in January there has been speculation that the minority government would be defeated if Mr. Turner persisted in proceeding with the corpo- rate tax cuts he introduced in his first budget in 1972. That budgetary provision was never passed, the October general election prevented it coming to a vote. Mr. Turner re-introduced the proposed corporate tax cuL as a part of his second budget in February Ibis year Liberals have voiced concern that if the Conservatives and NDP unite to vote against the corporate tax cut it would mean the defeat of the minority gov- e.imr-nt The cabinet has stalled off introducing the as lev as possible. Now the crunch is coming. Inc'icr.tions however are that the minority government will siTvive the crtnrh as any de- sire for a summer campaign has Jaded amopg members on both sides of the house. Mr. Turner appears con- vinced that the government can sun h e the hurdle and continue in office.
