Phil Atteck, vice-president, of the Port of Spain Twinning As-1 sociation, said that everyone in the two communities has be- come involved in exchanging services. The operation is an ex- ample of the benefits that can accrue from such exchanges. Each September, he about 130 persons and a steel band from Port of Spain travel j to St. Catharines for the Grape! and Wine Festival, and are bil- leted in the homes of St. Cathar- ines residents. In February, about the same number of persons from St. Catharines go to Trinidad to take part in the Port of Spain Carnival.

The recommendation follow- ed an inquest into the death of Richard Cripps, IB, of Calgary who died from injuries suffered when struck by a semi-trailer track while riding his bicycle last March.

When the stocky, blunl-lalkini; party leader hammers at the podium, on cross-Canada speak- ing tours, his dedication to so- cial democracy leaves lillle room for levity. When he's an- swering curt questions on televi- sion, with his cryptic, some- times cutting, replies no one would ever think thai a chuckle may be bubbling up in the back- ground. Perhaps it's the tough, grey exterior that brings on political allegations of arrogance. "I don't know." he reflects. "The only thing I can say is that I certainly don't feel arrogant." Well what about the often- heard suggestion that the NDP is too self-righteous? THAT SMARTS "Frankly, that one does irri- tate me a bit, although 1 am not really sure what they mean. Perhaps it's said out of a feel- ing of guilt, since we spend a lot of time pointing out injustices. "You know, my colleagues and 1 constantly emphasize the fact that we don't question the sincerity of individual Liberals or simply criticize the collective goals and collective thrusts of their poli- cies. "I don't know what's self- righteous about this." Mr. Lewis obviously loves his I job, and if recent opinion poll i don'! indicate any upward surges in popular party you'd never detect it from his buoyancy. "Some are even srving we'll loose Skeena (a British Colum- bia Nuts." "It wouldn't be creditable for me to go around saying that we are going to form the next gov- ernment. But I think we will make substantial progress." DELICATE SUBJECT One of the most delicate sub- jects for any politician concerns his press criti- cism sounds like a complaint." But the NDP leader, pressed lie laughed when he said that some of the people who decide on the type of headline he will get, also are the people who write editorials asking why tho XDP leader is not making head- lines. If news coverage is a frustra- tion, what has been one of tho pleasant surprises of Hie job? "Probably the way in which I, as an easterner and an urban lawyer, have been able to de- v e 1 o p extremely comfortable communications with rural farm people. And there has been a very real and warm re- ception from within Hie party generally." But isn't it discouraging that after all these years of trying, a socialist party still has not made a massive breakthrough into Parliament. "Not discouraging. It's al- ways disappointing when wo don't elect more members, but 1 think our presence has been of immense value, and our contri- bution to the welfare of Canadi- ans is away out of proportion to the numbers elected." No. he didn't resent the gov- ernment adopting NDP policies and gelling credit for them. I "They can steal our pants, t just don't like it when they rip them to bhreds." I In a two-hour conversation tl ere was only one question Mr. Lewis declined to answer di- rectly. What happens to his leadership if he returns after the next election with fewer than the present 25 memters? "It's hypothetical and I can't answer it. We expect to gain seats." "And someday there will be an NDP prime minister in Can- ada." about some of the frustrations of office, said he sometimes felt frustrated by the fact that "most, if not all the media, are unsympathetic toward the NDP." "I recognize the fact that we are a third party, and that full coverage has to be given the government and the official Op- position, which is the traditional alternative, but I do sometimes find it frustrating that my trav- els seldom get national atten- tion."
