Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, September 18, operators play major role in Oct. 30th election campaign TORONTO (CP> The Globo iind Mail says two computers in the United States and another Toronto and the men who fdxi nnd read them have played a major role in the style and strategy of the Oct. 30 fed- eral election campaign. The Liberal, Progressive Con- servative and New Democratic parties all commissioned pri- vate polls at the beginning of the slimmer, the newspaper says. The results of questionnaires administered to a scientifically selected group of voters and cross-tabulated by computers is immistakeabte in (lie design of the campaign fabric rolling out says Ihe newspaper. It savs abbreviated versions of the printouts and their inter- iretations are: For the Tories: ''Bob Stanliold is a solid, able Ruy who doesn't have much pi- the election is swung around heavily to economic is- sues people will vote lor a more solid, middle-of-the-road guy." For Ilic Liberals: "The eco- nomic concerns that started to c u t heavily into Pierre Trudeau's popular support last year (especially in Ontario) have diminished wtiile individ- uals' confidence in the future of Canada, tempered only by an irksome concern for Canadian identity, are on the upswing- defining Canada to Canadians would lead to this strength." For llic NDP: "The young lower-middlc-clnss workers who have pasrcd the teeny-bopper phase and are (ormiiii; families are concerned about taxes, dif- ficulties of finding and afford- i and Housing Corp. ing housing and the cost of gro- the 'coroo- vate ivclfaro housing policv failures and cost-of-living the Central anci Statistics Canada providing free ammunition." The newspaper says the Lib- erals and Conservatives are re- luctant to discuss Hie surveys because both use U.S. pollsters Canadian oil tor Canadian markets soul o! Independent Canada Committee C5 EDMONTON (CP) Canada must develop a national energy policy which would divorce the country from its unhappy eco- nomic marriage with (he United Stales, the Edmonton chapter of the Committee for an Independent Canada (CIC) said Friday. The statement was in a paper prepared by the chapter for consideration during the CIC's [trst policy conference. "The aim of the policy should be to conserve energj re- sources for Canadian use and to keep the costs as low as pos- sible. This is in the interests oi the development of the secon- dary manufacturing that is es- sential. The intimate con- nection between the Canadian and American oil economies must be broken. The total Ca- nac'can market should be served with Canadian oil (and) export of oil should be dis- couraged by all means." who evaluate results and pro- vide some coaching from the sidelines. Although the New Democrats use a Canadian firm, their re- liance on professional pollsters is a relatively new experience and they are reticent to talk about it in the belief that the use of commercial polling may detract from their dowa-to-the- real people image, says The Globe. The Globe quotes Robert An- dras, minister of corporate and consumer affairs, as saying -that "everybody's been in the survey act it's gotten to be 3 status symbol." The Liberals use Oliver Quayle, a New York pollster who was formerly with the Lou Harris organization when it EATON'S Start a classic collection of Tan Jay wool doubleknits from Eaton's, of course Classics are back!

Robert Teeter, Ihe Detroit- based pollster whose advice so successful in Ontario Premier Wilb'am Davis's elec- tion lasl fall, has been working for the national Conservative party since I960. The New Democratic Party has piggybacked several sur- veys on lo the Gallup Poll sample, The Globe says. Al- though they deal with an asso- ciated company, the data is col- lected in the same 700 inter- views as the Gallup Poll Corporations must create jobs HALIFAX (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau, for the first lime in bis election campaign tour, answered charges here made by opposition leaders, particularly those about "cor- porate bums" by New Demo- crat David Lewis. Participating in an open-line radio show here, he told one lis- tener that she had received "a bum explanation" on the taxes and interest paid by corpo- rations. Speaking in (he home riding of Conservative Leader Robevt Stanfield, he also acknowledged that mistakes had been made in regional incentive grants hut at the same time defended the program as one that is bringing equality across Canada. He was answering a question from the host about charges by Mr. Stanfield that DHEE grants are haphazard and spotty. The prime minister was par- ticipating in a Liberal spon- sored open-line show on 25 At- lantic provinces radio stations. It was announced on the air that it was believed to be the largest private network ever put together in Canada for such a purpose. Mr. Tnideau started his Oct. 30 election campaign tour Tues- day and concentrated on Lib- eral hopes for Canada and the record of his government over the last four years. He did not specifically deal with charges made by the oppc- lls- from Rlverport, N.S., charges by Mr. Lewis in the listener's words, deal" because large Russians watch NATO war games LONDON (Router) Soviet spy ships and planes are watch- ing the big NATO war games in the northern and eastern Allan- tie which began two days ago. The Supreme Allied Com- mander Atlanlic, United States Admiral Charles Kennedy Dun- can, told a news conference Saturday: "There are certainly Soviet forces present in the area. We are quite aware that there arc Soviet aircraft and surface vessels and I would as- sume there arc submarines." A press statement from the North Atlanlic Treaty Organ- ization's London office on the land, sea and air exercise, code-named Strong Express, said maritime surveillance sorties by participating British, U.S., Norwegian, Netherlands and West German air force planes had located a number of Soviet surface vessels and sub- marines in the eastern Atlantic area. NATO warships and subma- rines, U.S. and British aircraft carriers moving into position in the northern Atlantic waters, also had reported limited activ- ity by Soviet reconnaissance aircraft, the statement said. sition. But he was asked by tener about that the taxpayers are getting, 'a bum corpo- rations are not paying Interest rales and have taxes deferred. Mr. Tnideau said Mr. Lewis is using figures that dealt with a time before loopholes were plugged lasl year in the Tax- ation Act. He also said corporations or institutions create jobs and business and pay dividends to equity shareholders. These shareholders In turn pay income tax. TAXES HIGHER At the same time, corpo- ration lax in Canada was slightly higher than that of the United States and considerably higher than in Sweden, which was the NDP's favorite country because it has a sociab'st gov- ernment. He said the over-all effect on the economy in general must be looked at. If a corporation uses all Its money to pay shareholders, the government gets its money through personal income tax If it uses it money to expand, to explore and to create jobs then it gels a lax break.' As it reaps the benefit of this expansion, it becomes eligible for taxation. The prime minister said, when commenting on Mr. Stanfield's criticism of DREE, the government knew It was go- ing to make mistakes when it started the program. But, he said, the program Is effective and if any section of Canada did not want the grants there were other sections, for instance eastern Quebec, who could use the money.
