"We do not wish to become another splinter but we do want to participate in a political realignment that will give tire Canadian people a clear, responsible and credible alternative to the present gov- ernment." The Conservative, and Social Credit parties were invited to send observers, an invitation that was not extended to the Liberals or New Democrats. Bert Leboe, a former Social Credit MP from Cariboo, saic there were "quite a number" o! Social Credit supporters at the convention.
