Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, November 23, 1974 Trudeau storms from House following swearing episode GEORGE HEES YAMAHA ORGANS New and Used COLLEGE MALL Phone 328-3694 By PETER LLOYD OTTAWA (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau barged out of the Commons Friday after apparently calling a Progressive Conservative MP a "son of a bitch" in what was seen on both sides of the House as an unfortunate mis- understanding. Conservatives said the re- mark was aimed at Harvie Andre (Calgary Centre) after the prime minister took a reference to divorce as referr- ing to his own family. Mr Trudeau snatched up his papers and stormed from the Commons so quickly that he could not be reached for com- ment, but one Liberal said later even government members believe he mis- understood Mr. Andre's remark. Before leaving the House, Mr Trudeau would not repeat his comments, but he said he would say the same thing to Mr Andre outside the Com- mons. "li it's in refeience to the honorable gentleman who ask- ed me a question related to di- vorce in my family, I'll gladly step outside and tell it to his face." Later, Pierre O'Neil, the prime minister's press secre- tary, said mutual explanations had been exchanged personal- ly between Mr. Trudeau and Conservative George Hees. A note had been received from Mr Andre and was being answered. "I guess everyone under- stands there was a misunder- standing, but explanations ROSSITER AGENCIES LTD, Established 1911 AilClusuof Insunnca FIRE AUTO BONDS LIABILITY Royal Insurance and other leading companies Lower Floor 517-4th Ave. S. Ph. 327-1541 have been accepted he said. Mr. Hees and Mr. Andre had left Ottawa and could not be reached for comment on their exchanges with the prime minister. Asked if Mr. Trudeau ac- knowledges use of the ex- pression. Mr. O'Neil replied: "I wasn't in the House, it isn't in the blues (mimeographed record of proceedings) and I didn't ask the prime minister." Mrs. Trudeau was not men- tioned by name in the Com- mons, but he said, "It isn't the first time Mrs. T has been re- ferred to in this context." She was mentioned earlier in the week when her recent free trip to Japan was referred to as a possible conflict of interest. Conservatives who heard the word would not repeat it to reporters who, along with Speaker James Jerome, did not hear it in the House. SAID THREE TIMES However, Conservative House Leader Gerald Baldwin said it was reported to him by Claude Wagner (St. prompting his question of privilege that resulted in the prime minister's hasty departure. "Mr. Wagner came over to me and said he (Trudeau) said son of a bitch three times." George Hees Edward-Hastings) said there was "no question about what he said." But he would not repeat what he heard, telling reporters "there may be more to this than meets the eye." The incident came after Mr. Andre in effect asked the prime minister whether divorce is viewed as a possible threat that would stop cabinet ministers from transferring assets to their spouses. The Conservatives say that transferring assets to spouses makes a farce of conflict of interest guides. "I deeply regret any per- sonal Mr. Andre told reporters. He later waited by the prime minister's car in a vain attempt to discuss the matter with Mr. Trudeau who "ob- viously felt I was referring to him in particular." Mr. Hees, renowned for his verbal altercations with Mr. Trudeau, went to the prime minister's office to try and straighten things out. However, he did not see Mr. Trudeau. SHUT DOOR Reporters who rushed after the prime minister arrived at his office just in time to see the door being closed by an aide who said, "He's got a meeting." When Mr. Trudeau left Parliament Hill later, he brushed past reporters attempting to ask him about the incident. Mr. Hees was particularly agitated about the incident as he hovered near the prime minister's office. "This kind of thing just can't go on between members of the Commons. We fight hard, but we're all good friends." It was a more serious in- cident than the alleged mouth- ing of an obscenity by Mr. Trudeau at a Conservative MP in 1971, he said. The prime minister later said his words were "fuddle-duddle." "This is something far more personal than Mr. Hees said. "I want to do whatever I can to straighten it out. "Nobody should feel the way the prime minister feels now." Mr. Baldwin said the situa- tion was so confusing that two other Conservatives at first thought Mr. Trudeau was referring to them. They were Joe Clark (Rocky Mountain) and Jake Epp (Provencher) who had just questioned the prime minister. SEES NO MALICE Mr. Baldwin said it was par- ticularly ironic that Mr. Andre was the subject of such a description. He was not the A COMPLETE LIST OF NEW CARS WITH FUEL INJECTION.

SAAB 99 As you can plainly see, fuel injection is to be found on some of the greatest cars. And, as you can also see, it's found on some of the world s most expensive cars. However, from now on fuel injection will be standard equipment on one of the world's greatest, least expensive cars: The 1975 Volks- wagen Beetle. And electronic fuel injection, at that. In a nutshell, here s how our system works and here s what it does for you: An electronic brain receives signals from the engine, evaluates those signals, and in split seconds, determines exactly how much fuel should go into each cylinder. And then, ogam in split seconds, the fuel in- jectors actually inject only the precise amount of gas that each cylinder needs. (Also we might add, our sys- tem still only requires good old regular gas.) Now, what ali this means to you, is that you don t waste a drop of gas. Your engine runs more smoothly, more efficiently and more trouble-free. And that's ]ust for starters. 39m3estotheqaHon' As well, and at no extra cost, every VW Beetle is covered by the Volkswagen Owners Security Blanket, probably the most advanced car coverage plan in the world.

Mr. Andre's question was a continuation of Conservative questions this week on conflict of interest rules for cabinet ministers. There was no recorded answer from Mr. Trudeau in the rough draft of Hansard, the official Com- mons record. Observers saw the prime minister's reaction as evidence he is fed up with speculation about his future following a late October television interview in which his wife, Margaret, said she longs for a more normal life. "I long for the day when I no longer will be the prime minister's wife, when I can just be Pierre's she said then. The prime minister said last week his wife's feelings are shared by many political wives. They did not mean he would leave office. "So I think what she said was a pretty normal and even standard attitude of many wives, but men still stay in politics, they still stay and pursue their careers and their wives still support them." Despite Mr. Trudeau's im- pression, Mr. Andre seemed to agree with this assessment. "In fact, I think cabinet families are generally stronger then most he told reporters outside the House. Hospital strike delayed EDMONTON (CP) Threatened walkouts by non medical workers at city hospitals were postponed Fri- day pending the outcome of negotiations next week. Spokesman for both the Canadian Union of Public Employees and the Health Sciences Association said their members are prepared to negotiate with the Alberta Hospital Association in separate meetings Tuesday and Wednesday. However. Angus Ferguson, executive secretary for Local 41 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees the local which staged a 10 hour wildcat walkout Thursday afternoon at the Royal Alexandra Hospital said hospital workers across the province still are "fed up" with recent provincial government action. The province announced earlier this week a decision to pay workers at four provincial hospitals a bonus and an extra a month salary. Mr. Ferguson threatened "bushfire" walkouts across the province if other hospital workers do not receive similar wage adjustments. The union represents about 1.000 workers in the city. The association negotiates with the hospital board for the 800 paramedical staff at 23 hospitals across Alberta.
