And there has been a very real and warm re- ception from within the parly generally." But isn't it di.scouraging that alter aM ilje.se 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 I think our presence has been ol immense value, and our contri- bution to the welfare of Canadi- ans is away out of proportion to the numbers elected."
