Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, September 20, 1973 Bilingualism wasn't discussed at national Liberal convention rhanees under I OTTAWA Bilingualism did not come before the Liberal national convention last weekend because it is "an issue that in the opinion of most delegates is now settled and no longer is a major controversial question in their minds." Senator Gildas Molgat of Manitoba, new president of the Liberal party said Monday. Fluently bilingual, the senator said the fact that he is bilingual was not a factor, to the best of his knowledge, in his election by a majority vote as president of the Liberal party organization. Born in the French speaking village of Ste Hose in Manitoba French is his mother tongue A meeting with Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau every two weeks will now be part'ol his schedule. The party organization is now be- ing geared up in anticipation o! an election at any time. With a minority government "an accident can happen at am tune." the new president pointed out in an interview. He will make a cross- Canada tour as soon as possi- ble so as to "touch bases" with each provincial Liberal organization He wants to get to know the Liberal party peo- ple across the country He hopes to make the tour before mid-October Tuesday the senator Hew back to Winnipeg to clean up some personal business because in the weeks ahead he is going to be fully occupied carrying out the duties of president of the Liberal party He presided over his first ex- ecutive meeting Sunday. An international organiza- tion of Liberals known as "Liberals International" will hold a conference in Ottawa next year with Prime Minister Trudeau scheduled to address the gathering. A start was made Sunday preparing for that international meeting. Senator Molgat is proposing to hold full scale executive meetings of the Liberal party at different centres across Canada. The first under his jurisdiction as president is tentatively scheduled to be held in Toronto when a provin- cial Liberal leadership convention is set for that city next month The members of the execu- tive, meeting at the same time as the Ontario leadership convention is being held, will have the opportunity of seeing the convention in action. He will be presiding over a considerably expanded execu- tive as a result of moves taken at the party convention. The executive will now include a larger representative of women and the younger members of the party. The convention agreed after much debate to alter the con- stitution of the party so that the number of women that must be included in the new executive is increased from four to seven. Youth, those un- der the age of 25, must have a minimum of five, compared with only two under the ex- isting constitution. "It will be a more lively executive setup and make the job of president that much more interesting." said the senator. He paid tribute to his prede- cessor Senator Richard Stan- bury from Toronto. As presi- dent Senator Stanbury had initiated changes under which the party got a much greater input into government pro- grams, said the new president. At the twice monthly meet- ings prime minister Senator Molgat will be accom- panied by Blair Williams of Alberta who holds the post of national director. He expects that some members of the prime minister's staff will also attend. The new president said that in keeping with proposed Grant total KITCHENER. Ont. (CP) Loans and grants under the Veterans Land Act over the last 30 years totalled billion, delegates to the convention of War Am- putations of Canada were told Tuesday. Arthur McCracken, director of loan administration, said veterans received funds and new homes were built in that period. changes under the elections act the Liberal party organization will have to set up a much larger fund raising machinery. He said the New Democratic Party has never been bashful about asking its supporters for funds and the Liberal party will have to do more such collecting rather than depending on con- tributions from private firms. The president said it would have been a good idea to make a start at the convention just closed. However he said the delegates had paid large amounts to attend the con- vention.
