Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, StpHmb.r 16, THE IETHMIDGE HHALB Jl Opposition parties face task Liberals still strong in Ontario OTTAWA (CP) An analysis of 1968 election results indicates that opposition parties will have to attract a substan- tial volume of votes away from the Liberals Oct. 30 to reduce Liberal strength in Ontario. Ontario, with 88 of M 4 Com- mons seats, is clectorally the most powerful region. The large majority of Liberal were won by margins of more than 20 per cent of the winner's total. Of the 64 ridings that voted Liberal, seven did so by mar- gins of under 10 per cent, seven oy margins of 15 to 20 per cent. The Liberals would be cut to less than half of all Ontario scats if 10 per cent of their votes in each riding were trans- ferred to the runner-up party. Such a swing is unusual in Ca- nadian elections. That would leave party stand- ing in Ontario at 42 Liberals, 35 Conservatives, 10 New Demo- crats and one Independent. Of the 64 seats won by Liber- SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS Edmonton Public School District No. 7 A Superintendent of Schools is required as tho chief executive officer of ona of Canada's most progressive ctiool systems.

PATERSON DEPUTY CHAIRMAN EDMONTON PUBLIC SCHOOL BOARD 8712- 109 STREET EDMONTON, ALBERTA Is In the 1968 election, one ater went New Democrat In a yelection, and two seats now are Conservative since tho Ub- ral MPs defected to the oppo- ition party. At the dissolution of Parlia- ment, the Commons standing in Ontario was 59 Literals, 19 Conservatives, seven New Democrats, one Independent and two vacancies in seats pre- viously held by Liberals. Botli the Conservatives and New Democrats won a higher >roportion of their seats in narginal victories than the Lib- erals. Three seals went Con- servative by less than two per cent oJ the winner's vote. Only one seat went NDP by more than 10 per where Derek Blackburn won a byelection with vites to for the runnerup. Even NDP Leader David Lewis won his scat by only 5.4 per cent of his to A modest swing in the mar ginal Conservative and NDP seats could yield the Liberals great benefits. The Liberals were runners-up in three of tho four opposition seats won by less than two per cent and also were second in all three opposition seats won by two to five per cent. Closest races in the 1968 elec Ion were in Leeds, where Con servative Desmond Code bea MB Liberal opponent by onl Thank You...

Richard In Ottawa East, who rushed his Conservative oppo- aent to for a mar- ;in of 84 per cent. Other margins over 50 per cent were all Liberal, except or Independent Lucien Lamou- in Stornwnt-Dundas. The biggest Conservative margin was 31.4 per cent, by Wallace Nesbitt in Oxford. But several of the huge Lib- eral margins may be affected by the retirement or defection of the victorious Liberal MP. Mr. Richard, for example, is retiring and it will not be known until Oct. 30 how many of his 1968 supporters will re- main Liberal. The two Liberals who switched to the Conservatives, Paul Hellyer in Toronto Trinity and Perry Ryan in Toronto Spadina, won in 1968 by mar- gins of 59 and 58 per cent re- spectively. The question for Oct. 30 is how many of their votes went fo them as Liberals and how many went to them as individuals. Another factor is that a com- paratively-slight province-wide increase in the votes of any one party could gain it many seats if that increase is concentrated In key ridings. For example, anoher votes In just the right places in 1968 would have given the Con- servatives another seven seats.

Job training programs loom CALGARY (CP) Industry- government training programs may become a part of agree- menls for industrial develop- ment northern Alberta, says Minister without Portfolio Allen Adair. Discussions about such pro- grams for northern residents have already held with Syncrude Canada Ltd. which lias an oil sands project plan- ned for Fort MacMurray, he said in an interview. Mr. Adair, in charge of north- ern affairs for province, said many people in the north are not qualified for the jobs available.

"What I would like to begin working towards Is joining with Industry ahead of time to allow the training of some of these people." gives you MORE for your FOOD DOLLAR THESE SPECIALS IN EFFECT ONLY AT CENTRE VILLAGE IGA-LETHBRIDGE MONDAY AND TUESDAY, SEPT., 18th AND 19th WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO LIMIT QUANTITIES PRICES IN EFFECT UNTIL CLOSING TUESDAY, SEPT. 19th BURNS CAMPFIRE SAUSAGE 1 Ib. pkg.
