Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, September 15, 1071 jy ITS LEinuMWC iTtunsauuy, in, i i-------------------------- Chances of voters going to polls in the fall increasing Election guessing game in full swing on Parliament Hill By PAUL JACKSON Herald Ollawa Bureau OTTAWA A federal election dale guessing game is in lull swing again on Parliament Hill and Ihc people in ilic know at least the people who say they are in the know-believe the chances of an election this fall are increasing. November is Ihe magic month. Alter that predictions are eaually split between early November and late November. However, the complexity of Oic situation is compounded by the prospect of a forthcoming Ontario provincial election, currently expected to be called lor late October or early November. There's only one Ihing that can be said for sure. That is that if a federal election is called for later this year it will likely be lor negative rattier than positive reasons Prime Minister Trudeau will feel lose fewer scats by going to the people this year than leaving it until I97i Reasons for holding an election this November rather than leaving it until spring, summer or fall next year are all economic and they have been compounded by the recent economic measures taken by U.S. president Richard Nixon. It's the feelins on Parliament Hill lhat President Nixon himself intends to take whatever measures are possible, and at whatever cost to anyone else, to ensure that he wins his country's presidential election, which must be held in November 1372. This means he is unlikely to do anything to make Canadian manufacturers and exporters happy such as removing the 10 per cent import snrcarge. That's bad news for Canada. Very bad news. After one winter cf high unemp 1 o ym e n unlikely to have been any less severe this winter, the U.S. economic measures mean unemployment in Canada this winter could be very much worse than last. The old bogy, usually raised by the New Democratic Party MPs in the house, of one million persons unemployed, is raising its head again. Questions have been raised in Parliament about government surveys and assessments of the coming winter unemployment toll. The government, while admitting the surveys have been carried out, says it is not policy to reveal the predictions. If the predictions arc as bad as many people think, although few probably expect to actually see unemployment hit the one million mark, then the feeling is that it is to Prime Minister Tnideau's advantage to go to the polls this year and lose a little rather than wait until possibly lose a lot alter a winler of discontent. No one seriously believes the Liberals could lose the next election. What's more, in some quarters the feeling is that Prime Minister Trudeau, pushing the old charisma, could even gain a few scats. However, the minority of pundits who believe that the next Liberal federal government could be a minority one is on the increase. This minority is also said to include some Liberal cabinet ministers. That may seem impossible considering the mass appeal of Pierre Elliot Trudeau. But people can point to a number of reasons for disillusionment in the prime minister apart from the economic crisis which may, or may not, be partially of his cabinet's own making. One, of course, is Quebec. Many thought Trudeau was the man to sort things out with events now make them feel they are not so sure. No one believes predictions by Real Caoueile, national Social Credit Party leader, lhat his party, which plans to field 200 candidates in the next federal election, will form the official opposition. But people like Gerald Baldwin, Progressive Conservative house leader and MP for Peace River. Alberta, do believe that Prime Minister Trudeau could wind up with a minority government after a November, 1971 election. He even feels Trudeau could lose in 1972. The Alberta MP says he didn't think until three weeks ago a federal election was likely. The U.S. import surcharge coupled with our own economic condition could now make it very likely possible in late November. Mr. Baldwin believes that Mr. Caouette, who himself election for next spring, will pick up seats in Quebec at the expense cf Ihe Liberals. Mr. Baldwin believes the Pro-gres sive Conservatives will, along with the New Democratic Party, pick up seats in On-t a r i o at tlie Liberals' expense. The Alberta MP also believes the PCs could get "one or two" seats currently held by the Liberals in Quebec. The balance in British Columbia will likely remain pretty much the same. He doubts if the Liberals can expect nor do they expect to pick up any seats on the Prairies or the Maritimes. If anything, the West in the past year or so has shown a definite trend to opt for a change of government. In Alberta, says Mr. Baldwin, apologists for the Liberal's bad showing point to the fact that the new Prcp-essive Conservative Premier Peter Lougheed was heavily promoted for his fresh young image. This, he says, is hardly true In Manitoba, Ihn NDP's Ed Shreyer had hardly been given any exposure before the election campaign got under way. In Saskatchewan, theNDP's An-nel Blakely was a "likeable" candidate but appeared to lack the dynamic personality one would expect a person to have who has overturned the government of a strong personality sue as tlie Liberal Hoss Tat-cher. Mr. Baldwin believes lhat economic and social forces are at work across the nation that mean trouble for established governments and hope for the opposition parties. The Trudeau government knows this and so will concentrate on holding Quebec, Ontario, and what they have in Britsih Columbia. It's a complex situation. A year ago no one would have dared whisper that tlie could wind up with even a minority government let alone, if Ihey wail until 1972, see their administration topple complete-iy-But, as one wag on Parliament Hill put it, many federal voters today are looking for Ihe type of man who can be executor of their last will and testament rather titan lake there pretty young daughters to a dance. If they are, the change in attitude can do nothing but give glee to Robert Stantield and provide a certain amount of worry SOT Prime Minister Trudeau.
