The mood of Parliament Lewis likely to provide fireworks OTTAWA (CP) If Lester] Pearson were prime minister: and John Diefenbaker were still leading the opposition, specula- tion would abound about the de- gree of election-eve bedlam in the resumed parliamentary ses- sion. But with today's cast of lead- ers, little is said about the so- called "mood" of Parliament. The fact is, there have been few fluctuations since 19G8. There is talk now about a hardened opposition stance as Parliament resumes and the politicians begin looking for- ward to the next general elec- Lion campaign. That could come anytime up to the spring of 1973. However, no one is sug- gesting the House is about to erupt into acrimony. Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield doesn't go thundering off on the trail of the govern- ment as his predecessor did. Prime Minister Trudeau doesn't respond with the ruffled anger of his predecessor.

With some spring seasoning in the leader's chair, he is expected to come out fighting. "If we play our cards says one of his colleagues, "David can appear to be the effective leader of the opposi- tion that would be a nice way to begin an election cam- paign." Meanwhile, Conservative MPs are predicting that Mr. Stan- field will also be a more promi- nent personality in the resumed session, because the over-riding issue will involve tax reform. This is the it was in the form of a government while brought Mr. Stanfield to his fighting peak. The Conservatives will be pro- posing a series of amendments to the tax legislation, which has already been amended drasti- cally from (he original wliit paper proposals. UNCHANGED MOOD Stanley Knowles, the veteran House leader of the NDP, doesn't forsee any great change in the mood of Hie resumed ses- sion. "I douht whether there will be any more acrimony than in the earlier part of the s sion. "We're going lo have a long hard pull with that tax bill." He says it's possible the tax debate could go on until close lo ChrisLmas, in which case a new session would begin in January with a pre-election Throne Speech. "We'll be exceedingly critical of the lax says Gerald W. Baldwin. Conservative House leader. "But as for the general atmosphere of the House, this will depend a great deal on the government."
