Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 16, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta g _ TH4 IEIHBRIDGI HERALD Thunday, September !8, 1971----------------------------------------------------- Last four provincial elections saw goyp.rnm.ents toppled Ontario premier Davis trying to buck trend by calling election TORONTO (CP) Premier William Davis is trying to buck a trend by calling a provincial election Oct. 21. The last four provincial gov- ernments to call elections have been toppled and six of the eight provincial general elec- tions since 19G9 have seen changes of government. The premier says he's not worried about those statistics. All nine provincial elections have been called in times of economic unrest and soaring un- employment. Election calls meant disaster for tliree government leaders leading their parties to tnc polls for the first time, but three rookie party chieftains led their forces to victory. Another possible factor in elections that saw government changes was the lowering of the voting ago in Nova Scotia in Landslide village disappearing fast ST. JEAN VIANNEY, Que. (CP) The remains of this once-thriving Saguenay Valley village are being pulled apart piece by piece. Every day, some of the survi- vors of the May -I landslide that killed 31 peopic and destroyed 41 homes return to see construc- tion workers administer the final blow to the community. The people come back to the municipal centre, stand at the top of the main street, and watch their houses being pre- pared for a 15-mile move to Ar- vida. Heavy rainfall in the area during the last two weeks de- layed start of the moving pro- ject, which is expected to bo completed by the end of this year. More than 40 homes in the town and the local church are to be moved by tractor trailer to their new sites. READIED FOR MOVE On two streets, where the houses were relatively unda- maged by the earth slide, and where more than people lived, modest bungalows have been grotesquely repositioncd INSURANCE LIABILITY BONDS AUTO FIRE ROSSITER AGENCIES LTD.

Phono 327-1541 by a huge rectangular hoist so that they can be placed aboard transport trailers At the end of the streets is the mnssive crater, caused by the landslide. Most of the mud and clay has dried up at the bottom of the hole and the homes that stoot on the surface in the crater for several days after the slide have disappeared, A car, the roof of a house and pieces of furniture are still scat- tered across the face of the CO-foot deep pit. The parish priest, Hev. Egidc Boulianne, said: "In a few months, everything will be gone from the church There will he no more St. Jean Vainney." SCHOOLS EMPTY Three schools beliind tho church are empty. The school1 are too large to be moved, am although geologists say they are on safe ground, it is unlikely they will be re-opened. A temporary bridge has been built across the Ri'.yre auj Vases where it flows into thp Saguenay to allow police and construction workers to return to the village. The old bridge was crushed by 15 million Ions of clay when the earthslide washed down the valley. The village's municipal centre will remain open until Nov. 1. Mayor Laureat Lavoie and the village council are still holding monthly meetings although the province assumed administra- tion of the community Aug. 12. On Nov. 1, the village council will dissolve itself and its debt of win be absorbed by the province. B E HARDWARE KEM FINE QUALITY PAINTS INTERIOR SUPER KEM TONE Reg. 12.70. Special, gal.

A number of these same in gredients are simmering in the Ontario election pot. SEEKS FIRST MANDATE Mr. Davis, 42, is seeking his first mandate as premier afier taking over the reins of the Tory government from John Ro- barts last February. It will also be the first elec lion as leader for Stephen Lewis, 33, who took over fron veteran Donald MacDonald a: leader of the New Democratii Party almost a year ago. The NDP has won the onlj byclecLion since the T o r i e boosted their string of genera election victories to eight in 1967, taking 69 of 117 seats. Standings in the legislature dissolution were Progress] Conservatives 68, Liberals 27 NDP 21 and one independent. Opposilion Leader Rober Nixon will be leading his party into an election battle for the second time. Also a factor in the Oct. 2 vote is the lowering of the vot ing age to IB from 21, adding about young people t the list of eligible voters. Ed Schreyer started the of election upsets June 25, 1969 when his New Democratic Parly captured 23 seats in Man itoba to become the country'; only NDP government at th time. Since then, governments hav' changed hands in Quebec, Novi ScoLia, Neiv Brunswick, Saskat chewan and Alberta, When governments were British Columbia 1969 and in Prince Edward Is land in came back wilh substantially-increased ma jorities. LOST FIRST CAMPAIGN Liberal Gerald Regan took the helm of the Nova S'cotia govern ment Oct. 13, 1970, after in creasing his party's representa tior to 23 seats from six. He beat G. I. Smith who was in his first campaign as Conservative party leader after taking over from Robert Stanfield, now fed eral leader. The Tories had governed since 1956 in Nova Scotia. When Richard Halfield's To- ries beat the Liberals under Louis Robichaud Oct. 26, 1970 they reversed the results of the Skilled workers needed CALGARY (CP) A short- age of skilled workers in some fields has left Canada Manpow- er unable to fill all positions, district manager Ray Huey said here. To ease tbe shortage, the Cal- gary office has asked skilled x o r k e r s to consider coming from other cities and some em- ployers are training unskilled personnel. "But the skills in short sup- ply appear to be common to all western Canada centres at this time of year. Other areas report similar conditions exist in meeting their local manpow- er demands." Workers are needed who are skilled stucco and cement mas- ons, aut o m o b i 1 e and diesel mechanics, a u t o bo d y repair- men, boiler welders, power line- men, waitresses, short order cooks and housemaids. Resource companies have been recruiting heavily, he said, and "there is a sharp bcrea-se in demand for material hand- lers and production workers in the manufacturing area, indi- cating that increase in produc- tion is general." Egypt sels up missile centre TEL AVIV (Reuter) Egypt has started setting up a new surface to-air missile centre about two miles from the Suez Canal. Israeli military sources said today. The sources said missiles fired from these bases could hit Israeli planes Hying 25 miles cast ot the canal Inside Israeli- held territory. Israeli soldiers on the canal's eastern hank can sec the circu- lar concrete structures going up on llic other side, Uic sources said. They said that in establishing Ihc new missile network the (Egyptians nrc completing their anti-aircraft defence system in the central sector of the cannJ. 1967 election by taking 32 of 58 seals and ended 10 years ot Lib- eral rule in New Brunswick. Robert Bourassa and his Lib- erals swept to victory with 72 seats on April 29, 1370 in an election where Quebec inde- pendence was the major issue. The Union Nationale govern- ment under Jean-Jacques Ber- trand saw its strength reduced to 17 seats from 56. Mr. Schrcyer, like Mr. Dour- assa, was a new opposition party leader when he captured Manitoba and ousted PC Pre- mier Walter Weir, who had taken over from Duff Roblin and was facing his first election test. SURPRISED SUPPORTERS The NDP returned to power In Saskatchewan June 24 this year after an absence of seven years when Allan BInkency led an up- surge that staggered even the most optimistic parly sup- porters by winning 45 of the BO seats. Liberal Ross Thatcher, who died one month after his defeat, saw Liberal strength reduced to 15 seats from 35, In Alberta, Mr. Lougheed rode a "time-for-a-change" elo- gan into the driver's seat, push- ing Social Credit Into an opposi- tion role in the legislature for the first time. The PCs captured 48 seats compared to six in 1967 while Harry Strom's Socreds saw then- strength dip to 26 from 55. In Prince Edward Island, Lib- eral Alex Campbell captured 27 of the 32 scats May for his second mandate after de- feating the Conservatives by winning 17 seats in I860. Premier W. A. C. Bennett, now in his 20th year as govern- ment leader of B.C., increased i'ocial Credit representation to 30 from 33 in the 55-seat legisla- ture in August, 1969, while re- ducing NDP strength to 11.from 17 at dissolution.
