Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta With wife and water dogs Thursday, October 11, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 29 Mowat settles in premier's back yard WINNIPEG (CP) Cana- dian author Farley Mowat remarked casually in June that he would consider moving to Manitoba if the New Democratic Party won the provincial election. So last month he loaded up the family camper, said good- bye to Port Hope, and headed west to settle in Premier Ed Schreyer's back yard in north Winnipeg Mr. Mowat, his wife Claire and their two Newfoundland water dogs have been guests of the Schreyers ever since, except for visits around the province. The well-known author and conservationist has never ex- pressed much of an attraction to politics or politicians, but he dubbed the NDP the "least obnoxious party" this summer and accompanied the premier on the campaign trail prior to the June 28 election "I sort of opened my big mouth during one of those trips." he recalled in an inter- view "I mentioned that I was so impressed with the NDP that I would consider moving to Manitoba if they won."

Tories back involvement TORONTO (CP) Canada should agree to participate in peacekeeping operations if "a real truce" is established in the Middle East, Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield said Wednesday. But the country should steer clear of any situation as un- stable as the Vieinam ceasefire signed last January, he said in an interview.
