SOUTH PHONE 327-5777 Open Dally UntH p.m. Open Thursday Until 9 p.m. VICTORIA -Premier Dave Barrett embarks today on a curious mission to where he will meet with Rene Levesque and attempt to persuade the Parti Quebecois leader to abandon the cause of separatism. The premier is to sit down Friday in Montreal with Mr. Levesque and try to woo him from his commitment to Que- bec's independence and have him join the New Democratic Party in the cause of demo- cratic socialism. When he first announced his intention earlier this month to meet with Mr. Mr. Barrett said the only difference between the NDP and PQ is language and never stopped peo- ple from making love. let's make love But it seems doubtful that the first date between the two leaders will be very produc- tive. Mr. Levesque has made it clear that although he likes the B.C. he is not about to abandon the cause of separatism for him. Mr. Barrett was cautious when asked what results he expected from the meeting. kind of concrete results can you expect out of an initial meeting between MAKING EFFORT he said he hoped the meeting would produce something positive and added that by making the overtures to Mr. Levesque he felt he had made an effort for Can- ada's Although Mr. Barrett's mo- tives for seeking the meeting can be his argu- ment is that the 30-per-cent popular vote the Parti Quebecois received in the Oct. 29 Quebec provincial election was not an endorsement of separatism but for the PQ's left-wing policies. he if the PQ would drop the separatist plank in its platform and join the NDP in the cause of demo- cratic socialism it would form the next government in Quebec. Mr. Barrett sees Quebec as ripe for NDP picking despite the fact that the party only won six seats in the Oct. 29 election. In examining Mr. Barrett's motives for the editorial writers and columnists have said it is possible he sincerely believes he can convince Mr. Levesque to drop separatism and join with the NDP in its program for development of the country. HAS There are two other possi- bilities however. One is that he has national am- the that he suggested the meeting at a re- cent NDP convention in Van- couver to divert attention from the hot issue of whether the party or the B.C. govern- ment sets provincial policy. Prime Minister Trudeau has said Mr. Barrett is na- if he thinks he is going to convert Mr. Levesque from separatism. Federal NDP Leader David Lewis said ths meeting will not be endorsed by the federal wing of the par- ty. It was Mr. Lewis who led the move several years ago to oust from the party those elements that were pushing for NDP support for Quebec's right to separate from the rest of Canada. Although Mr. Barrett appears to lack an intimate knowledge of he fre- quently comments on its politics and provincial problems. Last summer he created a stir by referring to the Liberal Energy crisis 'trumped up' SASKATOON The energy crisis has been engineered by the oil industry to extract more money from consumers for financing the exploration of new energy says the director of international affairs for the Canadian Labor Congress Romeo Maione said in an interview the current energy crisis is and the real crisis will come 25 to 30 years from now. RENE LEVESQUE government of Robert Bourassa as a mouse because he said it was mismanaging the province's resources. If the province got a better return from its resources it would not have to depend on equalization payments from PREMIER BARRETT such provinces as B C. he said. On another occasion Mr. Barrett said in a Quebec new- spaper interview that there was no such things as a dis- tinct French-Canadian culture. New Quebec cabinet QUEBEC Premier Robert Bourassa announced the composition of his new cabinet Tuesday. There were no surprises in its makeup. As Claude Forget was named social affairs minister. He had been assis- tant deputy social affairs minister under Claude who announced last summer he would not contest another election. Denis Hardy was named cultural affairs tak- ing the load of that portfolio off the shoulders of Francois who remains education minister. Lise president of the Quebec Liberal party and the only woman elected to the 110- seat Quebec national assembly in the Oct. 29 provincial general was named minister without portfolio with responsibility in the social affairs de- partment. Premier Bourassa also an- nounced nomination of 12 par- liamentary secretaries. Raymond former minister without portfolio with responsibility for tran- was named transport minister and minister of public works and supply. He also retains posts as minister without portfolio with responsibility in inter- governmental affairs and in finance. Thus Mr. Mailloux takes over the responsibilities of three ministers who resigned from politics shortly before the election was announced last September. Maurice Tessier had been public works Ber- nard Pinard roads and tran- sport minister and Georges Tremblay minister responsi- ble for auto-routes. before the Palliser signwent the first barrels of EalliserKeserve CanadianWhisky were laid down.
