Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 9, 1972 THE LETHBR1DGE HBRAID IS Opposition ivill have something to aim at Trudeau must run on his record By TOM MITCHELL OTTAWA (CP) In four politically speaking, Prime Minister Trudeau has moved from youth to middle age. This Is expected to bring the biggest change to the 1972 fed- eral election campaign from the one that preceded the last election, Jur.e 25, 1968. At 48, the last time, Mr. Trudeau had headed the gov- ernment only briefly, hardly long enough to establish a track record, A bachelor then, the image of him happily played up by Liberal party publicists was that of the swinging sporls cars, afhletic prowess mod clothes, the Caesar-style haircut. At 53 this birthday Is Oct. image has changed. Now a married man with one child, Mr. Trudeau is depictef in party literature as a solic and efficient leader, workinp long hours, heading a Libera team that has four years o good accomplishments behind i and is continuing to lead the country towards more strengtl in the economy and nationa unity. In short, Mr. Trudeau has b run this time on a record. It gives Conservative Leade Robert Slanfield, New Demo crat Leader David Levris am Social Credit Leader Re a Caouctte something to shoot a that they didn't have in 1068. Since these three leader smelled election, about I he tim the Liberals useci debate-limi ing procedures late last year t push through a bill makin widespread changes in th country's tax system, they hav concentrated on one issue- money. lack been a matter fo almost daily questioning by o position MPs throughout th last two years, when it has ho ered around the six-per-cen level. Despite Liberal clainis Ihi Canada's performance in crea ing new jobs looks great who stacked up against other n tions and that there was surge onto the labor market a youngsters horn aller the Se ond World War reached matur ity, this issue is expected continue as a major them throughout the campaign. I1' i n a n c e Minister Joh Turner, delivered his firs budget May 8, said that crea ing jobs is his first priority. But the budget added som el to the whole money ques- in by making no changes in of personal income that a three- r-cent reduction in effect for alf of 1071 and this year dis- ppears Dec. 31. Mr. Stanfield, 58, has called r a sort of constant dollar tax stem, allowing Canadians to destep the effects of Inflation, icy would pay higher taxes nly on real increases in the urchasing power of their in- ome, not on those that jusl ept them abreast of higher rices due to inflation. Mr. Lewis, oldest of the party eaders at 63, has listed a .ring of companies, most in re- ource extraction, in what he ailed the "corporate welfare :p-off" category, earning largo refits but paying low taxes be- ause of various allowances or Titeoffs. His theme Is that the govern- lent allows reatment. For Mr. Caouelte, who turns such kld-glovo 5 Sept. 26, and his Quebec- ased parly, a continuing heme is based on a corner- tone of Social Credit monetary til e people must have he funds to buy the output ol lie economy. SUGGESTS SYSTEM' He has called for a com- pilation. involving a large jump basic personal Income tax exemptions and a guaranteed minimum income. Under it, a couple with four children, for example, would lave an untaxed income up to a year. If the breadwin- ner hadn't earned that much, the government would pay him what he lacked to reach that in. come level. Two other money matters will be campaign for- eign domination of the Cana- dian economy and the millions in public money given to fi- nance new plants or expansion in slow-growth areas by the de- partment of regional economic expansion. A study by Revenue Minister Herb Gray confirmed a heavy extent of foreign domination, particularly in resource extrac- tion industries. After it, the Liberals announced they would set up a screening agency which would look at all busi- ness takeovers, by Canadian firms as well, and rule for or against on the basis of net ben- efit to Canada. lire proposal has left some dissatisfaction williin both Lily cral and Conservative ranks. It is evidenced by membership o( such luminaries as Walter Gor- don, onetime Liberal finance minister, and E. A. Goodman, longtime Conservative and for- mer election strategist, in the group called A Committee for an Independent Canada. The group favors positive government action, to encour- age more Canadian investment in the economy and safeguards against further foriegn inroads. The regional expansion de- partment under Jean Marchand also produces some mixed feel- ings. While there is general agree- ment that Canada needs some- thing to entice for industry there have been some opposi- tion doubts that Mr, March. and's sytem is the right way. The whole of Quebec has been disginated as an area eli- gible for such growth-spurring grants and this appears a fac tor in some of the complaints launched by Conservatives and New Democrats. And any alle- gations of political pork-barrel ling in his home province are sure to rouse Mr. Marchand 's ire. He contends that high unem Some ridings have had names altered jloyment other factors are esponsible for the heavy flow f department grants to Que- jec, with no political hanky- wnky involved. OTHER ISSUES There are issues that will lave clout in specific regions. The government push towarc more biluigualism in the public service is one, particularly in West where there is a heavy ethnic populalion with some fears that concentration on French and English endan- gers survival of other lang- uages, and in the Ottawa area, where many long lime Eng- lish public servants fear their chances of promotion ore being wiped out. There are farm issues. Gov- ernment wheat-selling efforts or lack of them, In the West, hangups in moving grain ofi the Prairies for shipment to foreign countries, dock strikes that hung up movement out ol St. Lawrence and West Coas: ports during the summer, prob- able costs of western feet grains in the East this winter after a near-disastrous w e summer in Quebec and Ontario OTTAWA (CP) During the' course of a parliamentary ses- sion, a few MPs introduce pri- vate bills to change the names of their ridings, usually by add- ing a word or two that makes it more identifiable with the vot- ers. Although there has been no redistribution of constituencies since next one won't be complete until the end of next are 19 ridings of the 284 that will have new names this eleclion. All in Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia, each new name consists of a hyphenated addition to old.

VANCOUVER (CP) Politi- cal strategists arc busy trans- lating the New Democtratic Party victory in this week's British Columbia election into federal terms as they geared up for a general election Oct. 30. Liberals, Conservatives, New Democrats and Social Credit- ors all saw cause for optimism in their respective translations, despite the B.C. voter's tradi- tion, of keeping his federal and provincial votes in separate compartments, Lawrence Jolivct, president of the national Lib- eral party, said it appears the B.C. electorate shocked itself in going over to the NDP pio- vincially and now "is not pre- pared to sec any changes in the federal scene." Hamilton, a national vice-president of the Conserva- tive parly, said the Tories are going into the general election "with provincial vote totals which dramatically exceed their lotals in the last federal election." Ernie Hall, an NDP MLA and member of ,the nationa party's campaign committee said he was encouraged by the Tory showing in Wednesday's vote because "they'll do in the Liberals" federally. Albancsc, a nationa vice-president of the Socia iriority over provincial con- cerns in the coming campaign. The one exception was Mr. Folivet, director of communica- tions for the Liberal campaign, vho said the perennial problem of harbor and railway develop- ment might be a factor. Asked about dissatisfaction among Western Liberals who complain of being ignored by the Eastern Liberal establish- ment, Mr. Jolivet said this fac- lor is "not exclusive to one party." Westerners have felt that way as indicated by the various small parties that crop up from time to he said. "I don't think if is cenlered in any one party. It's a tradition- al attitude." On the prospects of the other parties, Mr. Jolivet said: "We sense a disinterest in the federal NDP party. Lewis (Na- tional NDP Leader David Lewis) has not caught the sup- port of people in B.C. and most of the efforts and interest of the NDP here now will be pro- vincial. "Tommy Douglas was able to get their support, but now I feel the party is some miles away. I don't look for any in- crease in their support." As for the Tories, Mr. Jolivet said they have "an uphill bat- tie in B.C." ''The voters are not prejiarcd fo extend further support to the Credit Party, noterl the federal in the national Mr. and provincial parties arc two completely different animals and said the B.C. vole showed only that "the people want a government that will do what they want no big daddies." One of the lilg question marks of Ihe early days of '.he campaign will be which Soc- recis defeated in the B.C. elec- tion will turn up as federal candidates. Mr. Albanese said there are "definitely three I will ap- proach personally two of them have been cabinet minis- Icrs." He declined to give sny names, saying only that he would expect the "fundamen- talist" Socrctls defeated in the provincial vote to Interested in running federally. Three of the four party spo- kesmen were genernliy agreed that national issues would lake Jolivet added. "They don't want to support minority parties or split the vote fur- ther." Mr. Jolivet refused to make any predictions on the number of seals the Liberals might win, but Mr. Hamilton, co-cliairman of the Tories' B.C. campaign committee, had it all taped. He named 11 ridings as "probable" Conservative victo- ries, six as "possibles" and five as "improbables." The only "impossible" was Skeena, which Frank Howard has held for the NDP since 1957. Mr. Howard also rcprescnled the provincial riding of Skeena in the B.C. Legislature for four years. As for the NDP, Mr. Hall said the basic policy is that "we are defending eight seats and have scheduled four of the remainder as top priority." FO0 PARSONS HARDWARE LTD.
