Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 7, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Jobless Action Pledged 'If We Have The Money OTTAWA (CP) Prime Min- ister Tnideau said Friday the government will take further measures to combat unemploy- ment this coming winter "if they are needed and if we have the money." He was replying in the Com- mons lo Opposilion Leader Rob- ert Slanfield who asked whether the government takes the posi- tion that it has done all it rea- sonably can do lo fight unem- ployment. Mr. Trudeau said after a pause that he would not say the government would not do more. He said earlier in reply to Mr. Stanfield that the government has taken a series of measures to alleviate unemployment and "is doing a great deal of things indeed." Mr. Stanfield had asked for new measures lo combat unem- ployment in view of the warning by the Atlantic Provinces Eco- nomic Council that there will he crisis conditions in the Allanlic provinces this winter. MOTION REJECTED The Liberals rejected a mo- tion by Heath Macquarrie (PC for a special de- bate on the APEC forecast of drastic and imminent unem- ployment in the Atlantic prov- inces. Mr. Macquarrie said APEC predicts a severe economic cri- sis this winter in an area al- ready suffering at least 10-per- cent male unemployment. Crash programs were needed to dim- inish the force of this crisis, he said. Gerald W. Baldwin, Conserva- live House leader, said Iwo cab- inet ministers shouted rejection of the required unan- imous Commons approval for before Mr. Mac- quarrie had presented it. Mr. Trudeau cited a number of actions he said the govern- ment lias taken, including more federal funds for housing, equal- ization payments and grants to the provinces and easing of re- straints on the money supply. Mr. Baldwin said such mea- sures were a "dismal flop." Mr. Trudeau said in reply to David Lewis, deputy New Dem: ocratic leader, that housing starts have increased to an an- nual rale of units from 200.000 units. Gilbert Rondeau, Creditiste House leader, asked whether the government will assume tin- employment costs as recom- mended in its wlu'te paper on the subject when the unemploy- ment rate exceeds four per cent of the labor force. Mr. Trudeau said legislation will be introduced after exami- nation of the white paper is completed. Mr. Lewis asked for special legislation to increase unem- ployment insurance benefits now. Mr. Trudeau said the govern- ment does not plan to do Ihis. But it would be happy to intro- duce its unemployment insur- ance legislation as quickly as possible if the opposition would co-operate. Robert, McCleave (PC-Hali- t'ax-East Hants) asked for selec- tive fiscal and monetary poli- :ies. Finance Minister Edgar Ben- son said such policies have al- ready been announced and the government has put money into regional development. One Injured One person was slightly in- jured and damage amounted to in a rear-end motor ve- hicle collision Thursday on 3rd Aye, and 12th St. S. The driver of one the ve- hicles, Robert J.

It follows that anybody who takes on a prime minister in an argument can pretty well count on getting the worst of it. Claude Ryan, publisher and editor of the Montreal daily Le Devoir, has been finding this oul lately. His supporters say he is entitled to cry "foul" at the treatment he's getting from Prime Minister Trudeau. Mr. Ryan and Mr. Trudeau met in the late 1910s and, says Mr. Ryan struck up a friendship. But after Mr. Trudeau be- came justice minister in 1967, Mr. Ryan began to criticize publicly the future prime minis- ter's concept of federalism: no special status for any province. In 1968, Mr. Ryan favored Paul Hellyer, then defence min- ister, for the Liberal leadership. In the general election that year he came out for Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield. During the anti-terrorist cam- paign in Quebec, Mr. Ryan urged negotiations with Front de Liberation du Quebec terror- ists on their demand for release of 23 prisoners and be is known to have had support within the Quebec cabinet for such nego- tiations although how much isn't clear. Friday Mr. Trudeau, without naming Mr. Ryan, told report- ers: "Lack of power corrupts; absolute lack of power corrupts absolutely." That has been taken to be a Trudeau jab at Mr. Ryan for seeking to use his weight to in- fluence events, but without suc- cess. Monday, Mr. Trudeau went farther in the Commons. He was asked by T. C. Doug- las, NDP leader, whether there were any indications that dis- j cussions concerning a possible provisional government in Quebec contemplated any Ille- gal actions, Mr. Trudeau replied: "None that I know of, but they were obviously predicated on the fact that a government that had been el lee ted six months before with an over- whelming majority of seats was now, in the mind of this person, so unstable and unlikely to last that he was contemplating H means to replace it." Again, Mr. Trudeau did not name "this person" but it was clear he was referring to Mr. Kyan. Tuesday night in a Radio-Can- ada television interview, Mr. Trudeau said Mr. Ryan and oth- ers "aren't accomplices of the FLQ, but they have identified themselves with FLQ de- mands." They are soft and I believo they are kidding the prime minister said.
