Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 17, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Canadian economy third in world CRANBnOOK (Special) I "You don't have to compare. You don't have to compare Pierre Elliott Trudeau with the Almighty. "You don't have to compare him to an absolute. "You just have to compare him to the alternatives." That, says Canadian Finance Minister John Turner, is the essence of the choice facing Canadians Oct. 30, when they go to the polls in a federal elec- tion. Hie Canadian people feel the Trudeau government deserves another mandate? I think on performance and pro- jected probability of perform- ance, it does." Turner told .in audience of about 100 recently in the Cranbrook Royal Cana- dian Legion hall. Attendance was restricted to people from fairly close to the city because of the second snow storm of the season. Turner, speaking on behalf o Liberal candidate for Okana gan-Kootenay, Doug Stewart said the Canadian economy i the third strongest in the worl next to the United States am Jaoan. It has been growing at a fas ter rate than any other countn in the wrold, except those and has been doing as well o better than most major com tries in all the economic ind cators.

Many of the questions asked >f the'minisler in question per- od concerned unemployment and the Unemployment Insur- ance Commmssion. Did he think the concept of full employment is obsolete in Jiis age of increasing and ad- vancing technology'? No., Tech- nology has been increasing since the invention of the cot- ton gin. Look at computer tech nology. Introduced a relatively few years ago, it now employs millions of people on the con tinent. To another question he said that direct intervchtlon by the federal government in pro- grams such as the Local Ini- tiatives Program have improvr ed the employment picture, and the strength of the economy- shown by all the "cold comfort" figures he quoted earlier in the evening had kept (he employ- men1 picture as good as it is and will soon "take a bit out of unemployment."
