Mr. Marchand told a confer- ence of bankers that his depart- ment, in the three years since it was formed, had "begun to make inroads on the deeply en- trenched inequities that were and continue to be our main concern." David Lewis, leader of the New Democratic Party, has said that regional grants, along with tax concessions to re- source industries, have resulted in a growing army of "corpo- rate welfare bums." Mr. Marchand sair' critics of the natural strengths of slow- growth regions." "In my view, moixi and atti- tude are key factors in cco- town, a or a nation." he said. The minister added that a consequence of an effective re- i o n a 1 development policy should be the development across Canada of smaller centres "offering dif- ferent dimensions for living" than the major urban centres. At (he same time, he said, growth in the large centres should be kept within manage- able limits "so that it can be associated not with congestion pollution and disorder, bul rather with a style and quality Ills department do not dispute progress towards "exploiting of big-city living unmatched on this continent."

IN YOUR IETHBRIDGE HERALD WEEKEND MAGAZINE Each is using Statistics Can- ada data, pointing up the old truism Hint staiiilics can be .eel to draw different con- clusions without, being er- roneous. The monthly reporis com- piled by Statistics Canada show that in" April, I960, (here were estimated people at work and that this figure rose to last month. That's the basis for the Trudeau claim of more than one million jobs having been added. Tlie precise figure is DID N'OT ADJUST Opposition Leader Stanfield is saying only new jobs have been "created in the four years and five months since Mr. Trudeau took office. Mr. Stanfield says Mr. Trudeau hasn't allowed for seasonal fac- tors in his factors. Tlie statistics show that em- ployment normally rises be- tween April and September number each year, and tails in the ter months. The April-to-Sep- tember increase each year in the last five years has ranged between and If the April, 1S68, and April figures are compared, the increase in employment would be only 809.000. If September figures for the two years are compared, the increase would be These figures are the esti- mated actual levels of employ- ment in the months concerned, based on Statislics Canada's survey of households scattered across Canada except in the norlhern territories and oji Indian reserves. They refer only to civilian employment, not membership in the armed forces which de- clined to aboul in mid- 1972 from in 19B8. SUTJJECT TO SWING The economy is subject to wide swings in employment and inemployment between the nigh-activity summer months and the slack period caused by he harshness of the winter. Another set of figures com- puted by Statistics Canada re- the underlying levels of employment, and unemploy- at the levels would be E the economy was not so af- fected by seasonal factors. These figures show that em- ployment in September this year was nominally compared with a nominal fig- ure of in April, That's a difference of and that is the figure being used by Sir. Slanfield.

But she and her two oppo- nents have been forced to con- centrate most on the issue of civil service bilingualizalion, one dial the mostly English- speaking constituents of Ottawa West continually raise at public meetings. Defending Liberal Lloyd Francis, Conservative aspirant Peter Reilly and Miss Jewelt piave all adopted basically the same stand: There should be a greater Francophone capacity in government but the careers of English civil servants must be protected from language dis- crimination. The videspread antagonism toward the idea of establishing quotas for Francophone hiring in government has caused Miss Jewett to. mute her call for more women in the bureau- cracy. She dislikes the word quota because she says it im- plies legal penalties il they ara not satisfied.
