Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 1, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHMIDGE HERALD Wednesday, November 1, 1972 Bilingualism backlash blamed for setback OTTAWA (CP) Leading Liberals hove blamed Ihc party's defeat in English-Canada on a mai'M's vole against the government's bilingualism and regional expansion policies. Some opposition politicians agree that the bilingiia_lisra program was at the root of Liberal defeats in Ontario and the West. Other top Liberals, such as Environment Minister Jack Davis, have said the party ran a weak campaign, inviting defeat. He said in Vancouver his party would have done better to stress a major issue like wage controls, "but we campaigned on D record and yon don't win that way." These were among initial reactions to the federal vote which left the Liberals with 103 seals, one fewer than the Conservatives. Also elected wo-e 30 New Democrats, 15 Social Crtditers and two independents. Regional Expansion Minister Jean Marchand said in Quebec tliat Quebecers judged they were well represented by the Liberals while "people in Ontario showed they weren't happy with (lie way Quebec was regional expansion minister said the election disclosed widespread discontent in the more affluent and English-speaking provinces with efforts to teduce regional disparity in Quebec and easle'-n Canada. Stale Secretary Gerard Pelle-tier echoed I'MS view. people don't like to pay for poor people. Mr. Pelletier said bilingualism had no bearing on election resiills except in the Ottawa In the Ottawa area, Liberal and Conservative candidates interpreted the results as a "massive rebuke" by against the government for the language policy. Lloyd Francis, defeated in liis bid to- re-election as Lib-era! IIP for Ottawa West, described the result as "a repudiation by the public service of the government's rough and unthinking implementation of iLs language policy." Treasury Board President C. M. Drury agreed that Liberal losses to Conservatives in three Ottawa-area ridings La-nark-Renfrew-Carleton, Gren-vllle-Carleton and Ottawa West could be pinned on the government's failure to convince public servants that would not be damaged by the bilingualism policy. THORNIEST ISSUE In Manitoba, Conservative Dan McKenzie, who defeated Liberal E. B. Osier in Winnipeg South Centre, said the Liberal policy on hilingualism "disturbed more people than anything else." Liberal Mark Smsrcbanskl attributed his defeat in the Manitoba ridine of Provencher lo the issue. "There strong feelings on the issue in this area." In Vancouver, Mr. Davis said that if the Liberal party had run on a single major issue have made a bettor Impression.

Americans told of Trudeau rebuff WASHINGTON (CP) 'Newspaper headlines told American readers today of a rebuff" for Prime Minister Trudeau in the Canadian elec- tions while government officials here tried to assess the impact of the indecisive results on 'orthcoming Canada-U.S. nego- j.itions. The election stand-off was given the main headline, across hree columns, in the final edi- :ion of the New York Times. It said: "Trudeau loses majority as Tories score big gains in Ca- nadian voting upset.'1 The Washington Post also ran Lhe story prominently under a headline saying "Canadian vot- ers rebuff Trudeau." Most television and radio news summaries discussed the election result, although gener- allv without much detail. Some 200 Canadians and Americans turned out lor a re- ception here Monday night at which the Canadian embassy offered a closed-circuit feed of CBC lelecasts, brought In by rented land lines. Among Canadian officials at the reception, there was a mix- ture of pessimism and uncer- tainly about the effects of the election on the Canadian posi- tion when long-delayed negotia- tions begin to tackle out- standing trade and other Issues, One senior official said the result could leave Canada's negotiating team severely weakened, faced with what he felt would be a determined American effort to wring con- cessions from Ottawa on the automotive trade agreement, defence purchases and similar points of contention. U.S. officials involved In past discussions with Canada said the American position was un- likely to alter substantially be- cause of an uncertain political situation In Canada. "We can work out our prob- lems with Bald a treasury department official, who asked to remain unnamed. "It's more a question of how the Canadians view the effect of the election on their position.
