Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 26, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta May 26, 1973 THI LITHMIDOI HtftALO Government fiscal blasted policies OTTAWA on metaphors that skipped from age to space age, Con- servative House leader Gerald Baldwin blasted the govern- ment's fiscal policies ra the Commons today. He was speaking to his party's motion censuring the Trudeau administration's "con- tinuing take-over of parlia- mentary control of public alleged "misman- agement" and escalating spending. Mr. Baldwin (PC Peace River) likened the government to a dinosaur. "It's huge and scaly, has a big mouth, it's voracious and it's fleet on foot." Also, he said, it is probably adept at "concealment and de- ception." Then, leaping into the 20th century, he described it as a rocket sitting on a launching systems go and ready to soar the dragging more spending behind it. Mr. Baldwin, who said in his motion "that immediate action must be taken to restore control of public funds to told the Commons it is nonsense for Treasury Board President C. M. Drury to say there is more parliamentary control of spending than in past years. CRITICISES DRURY He said Mr. Drury's "juvenile and attenuated" remarks were misleading. He called for a deal for the taxpayers, de- scribed by another Conservative MP as "the forgotten major- ity." "His colleagues know it's wrong, this Parliament knows it's wrong and it's time it was dealt said Mr. Baldwin. He then described the Com- mons committee system of studying estimates as "an abso- lute flop." It was not a "ratio- nal and sensible" way of doing business. Mr. Baldwin conceded the committees can call witnesses but said they usually cannct get the kind of 'information they re- quire. Mr. Baldwin said the auditor- general's attempts to ferret out details of "stupid and extrava- gant" spending programs are met by government accusations that he is snooping and ex- ceeding his authority. He recommended, among other things, that a new audi- tor-general act be formulated that might provide more muscle for investigation of government spending. Actress dies of cancer VAN NUYS, Calif.

Campora assumes office en May 25, lie will begin what al- most all Argentines consider the most important chapter in their history since Juan Dom- ingo Perora was overthrown a military coup in 1955. STILL LEADER Peron, 77 years old. remains the unquestioned leader of a movement that its opponents still strongly suspect of being reckless and even fascist. But during Peron's 18 years he was a worker for a state, He expects it to dampen the in exile, his following has mushroomed to include not only the traditional working- class base, but also leftists, na- tionalists, moderates, profes- sionals and even an influential segment of the business com- munity. One of two Argentine vot- ers cast their ballots in favor of the Peronist coalition, with the remaining votes fragmented among eight powerless, divided parties. The Peronists are the only viable political group in t h e country, but because of their heterogeneity there is a wide divergence of opinion among their followers over the future course of the new government, and the prospects for the movement after the death of Percn. After a score of interviews, the following are the profiles and expectations of three Per- onists a union official who was a worker during the first j Peronist era, a young laborer I who was a child in Peron's heyday, and a muM-millionaire industrialist turned economics professor. The years that followed the overthrow of Peron have been good to Angel Miguel Mazzotta. During the first Peronist era, water and electric power agen- cy. Today, at 48, he is an of- ficial with the influential light and power union and a Peron- ist party functionary. He dresses his bantamweight frame with well-cut suits and embroidered shirts. He vaca- tions with his wife and college- bound son in Mar Del Plata, the popular Atlantic beach resort. But Mazzotta spent the prims of his life under the first Per- onist government, and he re- members those nine years as "the golden era of our coun- try." Before Peron and his fiery wife, Eva Duarte, assumed sower, Mazzotta worked 14- hour days toting oil barrels 'for a wage that would make .'ou laugh." It was nof just the salary in- creases, the social security, medical benefits, and easy loans for housing that convert- ed him to Peromsrn, Mazzottt explained. "Under General Peron, work- ers could life their heads up high." he said, "and Argentina was really something. We had the racing car champion of the world, and cur soccer teams al- ways won. Before Peron for- eigners thought we were all just a bunch of gaucbos, but under him all Latin Ameicans looked to us." Mazzotta says he little of the excesses of the Peronist era the charges of unjust imprisonment, torture, censorship, extortion, and pol- itical police. "If there were mistakes, it was because of some of the people around Peron, not the general, he said. There was some pressure on the newspapers, but so much of the rest was exaggerations! acd lies." j Mazzotta lias great hopes for the new Peronist government. Rap wide range of subjects Alberta MPs voice opinions By PAUL JACKSON Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Five Alberta MPs tackled the federal govern- ment in the- House of Commons on a wide range of subjects and at least one of gary South's Peter appeared to win type of commitment Opposition mem- bers like to get but rarely do. The exchanges occurred dur- ing a heated 40-minute question period in which the five Pro- gresive Conservative members kept bidding for, and eventually getting, Speaker Lucien Lamou- reux's recognition. Mr. Bawden was concerned about a court decision in Yel- lowknife, N.W.T. last week tem- porarily freezing ownership transfers of land over an area covering some square miles in the Mackenzie River basin. The temporary freeze was imposed while the courts consider claims over ownership j being held In Ottawa that very subject is up for discussion. He said he is sure Mr. Trudeau will report on revenue sharing at the earliest opportunity. Ged Baldwin, MP for Peace River and the Conservative House leader, brought up the subject of former Auditor-Gen- eral Maxwell Henderson's final report which was released Wednesday. The report outlines dozens of instances in which the federal government has wasted millions on millions of dollars of the taxpayers' money. Pointing out the "well docu- mented revelation's of adminis- t r a t i v e incompetence and spending Mr. Baldwin urged the federal government to consider Mr. Henderson's suggestion that Ot- tawa commission a manage- ment consultants' study of gov- ernment organization and man- agement procedure. Treasury board president C. M. Drury, apparently rejecting raging annual inflationary rate now running close to 100 per cent, and to raise the "real wages of the working man." "In five or six months, everything will change for the j he affirms. But Mazzotta is profoundly pessimistic about the future of the movement after the death of Peron, the unquestioned leader. "There is nobody of his cal- iber to hold us he said. "The general has kept this country from going Commun- ist. But we are being infiltrat- ed by Bolsheviks, Trotskyites and all sorts of Marxists. i by northern Indians. The Calgary South MP said oil and gas companies are se- riously concerned that the freeze will prevent normal oil exploration and land transac- tions between companies and that permits and leases already granted to oil companies are in jeopardy. Indian and Northern Affairs Minister Jean Chretien, after being repeatedly asked for as- by Mr. Bawden, said the action wouldn't be detri- mental to current exploration plans. Mr. Chretien told the Calgary South MP the freeze doesn't prevent Ottawa issuing explor- ation permits and companies planning substantial Mackenzie River shipments this summer to carry out oil exploration next winter need not be unduly con- cerned. Another Calgary MP, Eldon Woolliams, tackled External Affairs Minister Mitchell acting prime minis- the growing housing crisis in Canadian cities. Mr. WooJliarns (PC Calgary North) said urban propertj taxes arc now so high it is al most impossible for the average Canadians to meet mortgage in- stalments on their homes. He wanted Mr. Sharp to press Prime Minister Pierre Elliotl Trudeau to pass along a greater share of federal revenues to the provinces so that in turn the burden on municipalities could be eased and soaring property taxes cut or held. Mr. Sharp pointed out that at the current federal-provincial conference of first ministers the suggestion, said he would want to know the opinion of the new auditor-general before making a decision on the mat- ter. Later, Mr. told Mr. Baldwin that he rejected tin Conservative MP's contention that Parliament has lost its con- trol of over government spend- ing. Within the past decade federal budget has jumped from billion to billion a year. Don Mazanakowski, MP foe Vegreville, pointed out that Mr. Henderson said the accounts of the National Harbors Board art so inadequate he couldn't ex- press an opinion on the validy or accuracy of them. Mr. Ma- zankowski wanted Ottawa to tighten up the board's account- ing methods. Mr. Drury, however, said the board was a semi-autonomous body that reports to Parliament through Transport Minister Jean Marchand who was not in the Commons.
