Manitoba Tories cool to coalition with Grits BRANDON (CP) Manitoba Conservatives wrestled last weekend with the issues o[ lead- ership and coalition with Ihe provincial Liberals and put both matters la rest, at least for the time being. After rancorous debate and I b e h i n d-lhe-sctnes infighting, about 400 delegates to the party's annual meeting gave Sidney Spivak a vote of con- fidence in his leadership and set about repairing internal rifts in lime for the next election. In an unofficial way, Tire leadership Issue was fought around a section of the party's constitution which re- quires a leadership convention eveiy two years when the Con- servatives are out of power. TEST POSTPONED A February convention with at least lira challengers from the party's 20-member legisla- tive caucus, appeared certain until a last-minute motion from the floor called for post- ponement of the convention un- til after the next election. rank- j Fewer than 50 delegates op- (Uid-file members also ex-j posed the resolution, but eight pressed coolness Co-'- i of those opposed wore members servative-Liberal efforts to of the caucus of 22. form an anti-New Party alliance. Mr. Spivak, a 44-year-old m'peg lawyer who was elected party leader in 1971, came into the three-day meeting faced with the clear possibility he would be forced into a lead- ership convention by mid-win- ter. He emerged with a clear mandate to lead the party into the provincial election cam- paign expected some time in 1973. Democratic j Mr. Spivak. who ended the meeting by bringing caucus members and prospective can- didates onstage with him in a show of solidarity, downplayed the seriousness of the rift to re- porters. ''We had our differences, we had an open discussion and now we look forward lo a united purpose. We want to see the present New Democratic Party government turfed out of Manitoba.

DELEGATES COOL The coalition issue, left off the formal agenda of the meet- ing, came up only during a "bearpit" session where MLAs answered questions from dele- gates. Supporters of a continuation of the talks that have gone on intermittently suice the NDP's victory in 1969 received a cool response from delegates at the session while those who called for the Conservatives to go it alone against both Liberals and New Democrats were cheered lustily. Mr. Slovak, under some pres- siu-e before the convention for allegedly holding up coalition talks with I. H. Asper's Liter- als, said the party's official po- sition on the subject will remain unchanged. He said individual constituency associations would be allowed lo make arrange- ments with Liberal counterparts in areas where a combined ef- fort might defeat an NDP can- didate However, full-scale coalition with the Liberals is out, he said, because the Liberals have continued to nominate candi- dates in seals now held by Con- 1 servalivcs.
