Mr. Hurtig, 40, r prominent book publisher and co-chairman of the Committee for an Inde pendent Canada, said the Lib- eral cabinet is composed of old- fashioned politicians who have not the vision to re- tain an independent Canada. He says he is opposing Mr. Lambert because he wants to offer ths voter a clear-cul choice between the two maior parties on the issue of eco- nomic sovereignty. Mr. Hurtig expects strong support from h'gh school anc university students in a con- stituency where almost half the voters are on the rolls for the first time. Full Canadian ownership of the proposed Mackenzie Valley Democratic Parly, said here he intends to publish a book in the next few days naming 75 cor- porations which he claims have benefited from the govern- ment's "tolerance" in paying their taxes or have been using loopholes to protect themselves from the treasury board. Interviewed in French on a Radio-Canada television pro- gram, Mr. Lewis said he is at- tacking the "system" and not just the corporations. Questioned on the platform of self-determination being used by tbe Quebec wing of the NDP. he admitted that the na- tional N'DP party and the Que- bec wing still do not eye to eye on this question. He said self-determination is "a socialist concept, that does not apply to just one port of Canada, but to all Canadians." The XDP wants "ordinary people to have more power anil influence on their future be- cause at present there is loo much power in the hands of the David 1 Iwcois people in (heir con- the New stiutencics to spoil their ballots.

Mr. Hurtig refused to accept in Liberal campaign 'unds because the party did not lisclose ttie source of its funds. Mr. Lambert sees nothing "nefarious in not disclosing my sources of campaign funds." "I don't even know wna gave what. It's up to the donor, not tl-e candidate, to make such disclosures. After all, you don't have to tell who you voie for." SPEND ABOUT S15.000 Mr. Hurtig said his campaign will cost about largely from his owri pocket and from small donations by many sup- porters. The New Democratic Party candidate, John Packer, 42, a biology professor at University of Alberta, lumps Mr. Hurtig with "the old-line parties" that aren't coming to grips with eco- nomic problems. Prof. Packer said the NDP has always disclosed its source of funds, and his campaign will cost about Donald McLeod, a 62-year-old chiropractor, is the Social Credit candidate.

He coupled this message with a stout defence of his Libera policy as he co mpleted a t w-o-d ay ton r through southern Ontario com- munities by car and helicopter. Canadians aren't listening to the opposition parties when they express gloom about Can ada's future, he told a stioppint mall crowd in Oakville.

PC policy has birth control clause for women's vote By STKPHEN KCO'IT OTTAWA (CD A Con- scrvative government would make it possible to get some di- vorces quicker, would provide "ree birth control and family planning information and per- nit hilt debate oil changes in abortion laws in Parliament with a free vote to follow. It would seek to create more women judges atul senators and provide for more women on government boards. It would remove Hie dis- crimination against women in a number of areas, including pro- tection of jobs of those preg- nant, The statements arc contained in a policy paper released by the pa rty here, anot her of the periodic assertions of policy that the party is circulating during the campaign leading up to the Oct. 30 federal election. The paper says the govern- ment has done little to elimi- nate widespread discrimination, "despite a growing public con- sensus that such loading of the dice againsL women is unaccep- table and must be GUARANTEES NEEDED The Conservative party be- lieves there must be guarantees in law to give women equal rights with men and, "as a co- rollary, equal responsibilities." Women should not he bound o traditional roles, should be able to make I heir own choice and develp their talcnls in any area they choose. A Conservative government would work speedily to imple- ment equality in the public ;ervice and would encourage industry and other governments to follow its example. Women and mcn would re- ceive equal consideration in federal appointments and over a period of time more women would be appointed to the bench, government hoards and agencies and the Senate than at present. The Fair Employment Prac- tices Act would be amended to assure that pregnant women would no more be subject to in- stant dismissal. Instead, a pregnant woman should be giv- en leave to have her child. ABORTION VOTE The federal government should provide leadershiu m a k I n g day-care facilities available and provide funds for the training and provision of qualified personnel to staff them. A Conservative government would en.sure that birth control intl family planning informa- .ion was available free and fi- nancial assistance would be provided lor training of family counsellors. The party, "realizing that there arc personal moral com- mitments on both sides of the question, will provide adequate time fo.1 parliamentary debate on whether the law permitting therapeutic abortions should be amended. A free volo would fol- low." In a free vote, an MP Is not bound by party policy and can vote the way he chooses. The paper said the party would amend the Divorce Act t o red u c c to one y ear from three the period of separation as a ground for divorce. It also would reduce to three from five the period of separation re- quired before a deserting spouse may file for a divorce. A Conservative government would create a federal council on the status of women which would report directly to Parlia- ment. Finally, the Adult Occupation Training Act would! be amended so those with full-time house- hold duties could make tise of its provisions. SIMPSONS-SEARS exchango 43-70 Chev. 6 cyl. 230 C.f.
