Liberals held 14 of the 23 fed- eral seats in Toronto when Par- iament dissolved last Friday. About jobs have been created through projects under L.I.P. Mr. Mackasey said next year's program will emphasize job creation, but that in no way meant the gov- ernment is looking toward a winter of high employment. There's always unemploy- ment in winter months because of Canada's geography, he said. Programs like L.I.P. did come out of a "gloom and doom" horror of unemploy ment, but because it is one o: the "best ways of spending money." He said he could not disclose low much would be spent on .P. or manpower's training the job program next year vithout more talks with the irovinces. But "it will be equal to the nilial amount we started with last That was million.

New projects won't be Tip- proved until after the election. Mr. Mackasey said about 23 per cent of the people involved in L.I.P. had drawn unemploy- ment insurance and another 25 per cent had been on welfare..

Kenya seals land borders KAMPALA, Uganda (AP) Kenya has closed its land bor- ders to Europeans and Asians living here, diplomatic sources said today. They said they received con- firmation of the closure from the Kenyan immigration de- partment. The ban on entry, Introduced last month for Asians living in Uganda, now will apply to "all residents of Uganda until fur- ther they said. The sources said the first Eu- ropean to be affected by the re- strictions, a Briton, was turned back at the border early today as he was trying to take his two children to Nairobi. The children would have been allowed through, the sources said, because they were visitors and not residents of Uganda. date who was not supported by he national party. Both the NDP and the Con- servatives plan lo run candi- dates this year. Mr. Lamoureux has received wide praise for the way he con- ducted the arduous job of keep- ng order in the Commons with- out appearing to favor any single party. Mr. Trudeau said in his letter Mr. Lamoureux filled his office with "grace and distinction" and added there is little doubt tie would receive the widest support if he sought re-election as Speaker. Mr. Stanfield told a reporter he has the greatest respect for the Sneaker but it would be un- fair and unreasonable to expect that the Conservatives in t h e constituency should not have opportunity to elect their own candidate. He said the Conservatives did not oppose Mr. Lamoureux in 1968 because they expected Mr. Trudeau to take steps to ap- point a permanent Speaker. But nothing had been done. "We can't expect the candi- date nominated to Mr. Stanfield said. Mr. Lamoureux announced previous decision not to seek Wednesday he has reversed a previous decision not to seek re-election. He mentioned there had been cabinet pressure on him to run again. Mr. Trudeau said in his letter he was informed only Wednes- day of Mr. Lamoureux's deci- sion to run again. But informed sources said he personally urged the Speaker to seek re- election. However, they said it was made clear to Mr. Lamoureux that, if he decided to stick to liis earlier decision, a senior position in the government bu- reaucracy would be available to him. Other reports said Mr. La- moureux was told that nothing was available but the Speaker's chair. Mr. Trudeau said a decision by all parties not to contest the constituency might mean that Canada is on its way to es- tablishing a system of re-elect- ing Speakers of the Commons. He said other alternatives have been suggested, including one that elected members should choose the Speaker. "I do not believe that this so- lution would be at all satis- factory, for much of the author- ity of the Speaker must come from the fact that he is an MP, elected by and responsible to Hie people of Canada, rather than being a mere official of Parliament. "As the First Commoner, he must also desire and have the right lo seek a renewal of Ms personal mancJate from those same electors.
