Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Says they're smart and capable Ontario NDP leader praises Tories TORONTO (CP) Stephen Lewis, leader of the Ontario New Democratic Party, isn't about to bolt to the Progressive Conservatives, although his awe of Premier William Da vis's government may make it seem that way. Mr. Lewis, in an interview Monday on the eve of the opening of the legislature, was unstinting in his praise of the Davis regime. He said the Tories, despite a recently tarnished public im- age, are not scoundrels, or corrupt, but smart and capable, with an infinite adap- tability to changing political times. Mr. Lewis, who last week launched a stepped-up per- sonal drive to prepare his par- ty for the next provincial elec- tion, expectecj in 1975, was harshly critical of the Liberals, also in opposition saying they are volatile, un- predictable and not fit to govern. Mr. Lewis, who considered resigning a year ago because of his party's crushing defeat in the 1971 elections, still believes the NDP will be the alternative choice for voters in the next election. He said the odds against the NDP gaining power are enor- mous, "but don't forget we got almost one million votes in 1971 and this is a pretty pow- erful base fora party like us." But his lirst concern will be the Tories because they "have the staying power." "That's the important thing about provincial politics, that the Tories are infinitely adaptable. Bill Davis has a lot oi strong backbench material. They are an unusually bright cabinet in many ways. "One can abuse them in the house, but there's no kidding one's self They're able people." The 117 members of the legislature face a heavy workload when the session resumes today after a three- month layoff. There are 76 Conservatives. 22 Liberals and 19 NDP members. House leader Eric Wmkler says the Progressive Con- servative government has 100 bills ready to introduce during this portion of the session, which is expected to last until Christmas. Many of them will be of the housekeeping variety. But some important legislation is promised, including a new law to stop deceptive merchandis- ing and a bill requiring that large campaign donations be made public. A new housing ministry will be created and Energy Minister Darcy McKeough is expected to submit new policies. Opposition Leader Robert Nixon and the 21 other Liberal MPPs can be excused if they're a bit preoccupied until Oct 28. That's the date when Liberals from across the province gather to accept or reject Mr. Nixon's leadership. Two members cf his caucus, Eddie Sargent (GreyBruce) and Donald Deacon (Toronto York are among his challengers. Edmontonian captured BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) Wayne Carlson, 26, has been returned to the Windsor state prison following a three-day search in Chittenden County. The Edmonton man escaped from sheriff's deputies Friday following a court appearance in Burlington. He was cap- tured yesterday. Under heavy guard, Carlson faced a probable cause hear- ing and was charged with es- cape and kidnapping of Theodore Hanson, an employer at a Shelburne architectural firm. Carlson did not enter pleas to the charges in Vermont dis- trict court. He was returned to the maximum security facility in Windsor. Bail was set at on the escape charge and on the kidnapping charge.
