These scholars, 'sought out perhaps more than ever before, come up with some surprising observations when they place the present impasse between Prime Minister Trudeau's Lib- erals and Robert Stanficld's Conservatives in the context of history. Jean-Charles Bonenfant, law professcr at Laval University says it is helpful to compare the Canadian position now with practice in Britain more than years ago. "Before 1868, no English prime minister defeated in an election ever -esigned without fiist going to said Prof. Bonenfant, a con- stitutional expert, in a tele- phone interview. The reason was that political parties then were not so'well established o' clearly defined as they later became. A prime minister, therefore, could not be certain of Ms fate until he tested a newly-elected Com- mons. If defeated there, he would tender Ms ifstgiialion -to I the monarch of the day. Prof. Bcnenfant said he feels i Mr. Trudeau took the right de- cision when he announced he will seek a vote of confid- ence in the Ottawa Commons rather than accede to demands that he resign in favor of Mr. Stanficld. The party standings in the House stood at Lib- orals 109, Conservatives 109, New Democratic party 30, So- cial Credit 14 and Independents I Though party structures ob- viously differ from Mth-centuiy .Britain.

"The insurance policies have been administered by an inter- j im administrator for some months now and on Tuesday last, the government appointed another administrator." i Roy Wilson (SC-Calgary Bow) asked whether the government intends to administer the poli- I cics to termination or whether the private insurance indusry I might be permitted to take I over.

"I think it is good to go back to the old way and meet lha said the professor. "It is impossible in these cir- cumstances to understand the whole R'tuatiun without a meet- in" of the House." The Laval authority said ho agrees with such exnerts as P-uialor H. Carl Montreal lawyrr. ant' Frank Scctt, former McGill law j dear, who f the Tories had an edge in the election the Liberal government's itutio-ial dutv was to face the Commons before any admisf.'on of defeat. Historian Laurier i McGill professor, said in an- other interview some com- mentator are talking "dan- gerous nonsense" when they suggest Mr. Trudeau should' step down because the bulk cf his support is in Quebec. Mr. Trudeau would be in a "far worse" position had he won a majority in so-called English Canada but lost Que- I bee, said P.-of. LaPierre. Canada had evolved over the I generations a system of parlia- mentary democracy and feder- alism based on a written and i element of "balance" being j maintained by unwritten but' well understood precepts. The unwritten understanding involved representation of the i regions of Canada in the gov- j ernment of the day.- Prof. LaP- ierre said lie regards both Mr. Stanfield and Mr. Trudcau as competent fo- office Li Ihe per- i sonal sense, but the I I despite their heavy losses in Ontario and the better able to provide balance j than the Conservatives, who' hold two seats in Quebec com-! pared with three fo'r Liberals in the West. The Liberals also had a big- ger popular vote. Licences required EDMONTON (CP) Regula- tions requiring a annual li- cence and insurance on all off- highway vehicles using public land became effective in Alber- ta yesterday. The new regulations are de- signed to cover any motorized vehicle, including snowmo- biles, Highways Minister Clar- ence Copithorne said in a news release. i A high ways department spokesman said no deadline for j the start of prosecutions has: been set.

EDMONTON acute] housing shortage at Coleman should be remedied under changes to the Alberta Housing Act, Municipal Affairs Minister Dave Russell says. Mr. Russell, in a news re- lease, said cabinet had approv- ed changes in regulations which will allow the Alberta Housing Corp. to provide loans for the dsveioDmsnt and improvement i of mobi'e home parks.
