Tile 41-year-old businessman said he believes that Action Canada, started last may by lormer Liberal minister Paul Hellyer, is that alternative. Mr. Skelton started working for the party because he was impressed with suggestions for Mr. Hellyer's full-employ- ment economic policy and his strong support of free enter- prise. Action Canada is "a populist a cross-section of "thinking people from all kinds of geographic, ethnic and voca- tional groups" who want Mr. Hellyer's social and economic policies adopted by a Canadian government. It is not a political party in the usual sense, Mr. Skelton says, and probably will not field candidates under its own banner in Uie next federal gen- eral election. "We are fully cognizant that in order to institute our poli- cies and put Canada back on her feet again, we will have to use the conventional way of doing things." This means, he said, Action pendent constituency organiza- tions would be the Action Can- ada tradamaik. day we become a cli- que of power brokers will be the day we'll hope another populist movement gets start- ed."
