Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, October 11, 1973 Separatism is the main issue mid-way in election campaign MONTREAL the Quebec election campaign quietly nears the mid-way point, only the issue of separatism appears to be receiving consistent public attention from the province's politicians Since the election was call- ed Sept. 25 by Premier Robert Bourassa, the Parti Quebecois' proposal for an in- dependent Quebec has been the major recurring theme during low-key campaigning by all four parties. The Union Nationale and the Parti Creditiste have joined the government attack on Rene Levesque's separatist party, despite Mr. Bourassa's claim that his Liberals offer the only true federalist option for the Oct. 29 general elec- tion. No other single issue has emerged to fire up the elec- torate The Parti Quebecois, estab- lished in the Quebec national assembly with seven seats in 1970, has responded with a methodical campaign promoting the viability of "political sovereignty" for the province. A proposed budget for the first year of an independent Quebec and other details on how independence can be achieved have been released by the Parti Quebecois, pushing more mundane poten- tial issues such as the economy, language and the James Bay hydroelectric development into the back- ground. Even allegations of political scandal which rocked the na- tional assembly and the prov- ince's press during the summer have failed to gain a real foothold as a campaign issue. After steadily gaining politi- cal respectability and credi- THE FINEST RETIREMENT AND RECREATIONAL COMMUNITY Bhnd B C., Holfway Tront-Canodo mail a end Addrtu bility since its founding in 1968, the Parti Quebecois says it is viewed as the true opposi- tion to the government. The addition of candidates such as former senior civil servants Claude Morin and Ykves Michaud has added further punch to the party's pitch for independence. Mr. Morin, former deputy- minister of intergovernmen- tal affairs, is playing a major role in explaining the party's stand. At the outset of the campaign, he said there would be no independence without a referendum, a policy which apparently had fallen from favor among some party oi- f icials since the 1970 election. The party has also placed renewed emphasis on a new link with the rest of Canada after an eventual separation, a policy the Parti Quebecois calls ''souverainete association." Mr. Michaud, a former Lib- eral and a former Quebec commissioner-general in Pans, emphasized this point of view recently, describing himself as an "orthodox federalist" seeking a new agreement between Quebec and the rest of the country. Mr. Levesque has also em- phasized the deliberate steps his party would take to secure its kind of independence for Quebec. The process, which would take almost two years, was summed up as follows by Claude Gravel of La Presse: the Parti Quebecois won the Oct. 29 election, it would administer Quebec as an ordinary province until the end of the 1974-75 budgetary year. the 18-month period, it would make public files on federal-provincial relations, including those showing the amount and direction of financial flows between the Quebec and federal governments. would be held with the federal govern- ment on economic issues such as the sharing of debts or assets, commercial ex- changes and a possible economic union. with these negotiations, the national assembly would be called on to give this last "provincial government" a clear mandate to form a "national government." Following the negotiations and legislature approval, a referendum would be altered to take into account Quebecers' wishes. final approval, the Parti Quebecois would imple- ment its budget for the first fiscal year of an independent Quebec. Mr. Levesque summed up the tone of his party's approach during the campaign with a brief comment on how it would move as a government: "A Parti Quebecois govern- ment will take time to nego- tiate."

MONTREAL (CP) The provincial government has refused permission to allow Quebec doctors to implant nuclear pacemakers in car- diac patients, the director of the Montreal Heart Institute said Tuesday. Dr. Paul David said in an in- terview that despite permis- sion given by the federal Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) to all Canadian hospitals, Quebec doctors are not allowed to perform this kind of heart surgery. Dr David said the provin- cial government probably fears "we plan to replace all the existing pacemakers with a nuclear which costs six to 10 times more than the battery-operated model, he said. All other provinces have agreed to use this new device. British union fined LONDON (AP) Britain's Amalgamated Engineers, industrial relations court has more than a million fined the country's second members, refused to obey a largest trade union Sir John Donaldson, the court president, took what he called "the exceptional course" of warning the union that the fine was only the first stage of the judgment. The final extent of the fine, he said, will depend on future un- ion action. In effect, he warned the un- ion that continued defiance of court rulings would be con- sidered as separate cases of contempt, subject to further fines At stake is the power of the court to act in labor disputes, and the ability of the trade un- ion movement to resist it. The union in the case, the court order to end a strike. Dr. David said. "This puts us behind the rest of the country especial- ly since this new gadget appears to be a very worthwhile treatment device."
