Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta iy, II, 1972 THE LEIHBRIDGE HERALD Vote forecast termed indiscreet Levestlue PlaJs politics By VICTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA A predJction by Sir Peter Hayman, the British high commissioner to Canada, tliat Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau will win the general election has aroused comment in newspapers over the uhusual and undiplomatic intervention in Canadian political affairs. The surprising forecast was made by Sir Peter at the Opera Ball In Toronto last week. He wo.5 Kw -TWwtn gossip columnist, but the col- umn was buried far back in the newspaper. However Dalton Camp, an editorial page commentator for The Star saw the quotes and wrote in his column Monday that he was prepared to the diplomat's prediction would prove wrong. Other newspapers have picked up and published Sir Pe- ter's indiscreet comments on the political scene, They have been also published in news- papers in London, England. A source in the British High Commission was asked if the Housing official issues warning WINNIPEG (CD C. D. Wilson of Calgary, president of the Housing and Urban Devel- opment Association of Canada, says a government take over of land and housing could re- sult unless Municipalities act quickly to provide more servic- ed land for house builders. Mr. Wilson told a meeting here of the Winnipeg House Builders Association that a shortage of serviced land is the most serious problem facing Canadian builders. He said people on limited Incomes are already being forc- ed from home ownership into subsidized housing or apart- ments because of the sky- rocketing land costs. NOT. ANSWER "Municipal land banks are not tile he said. "Muni- cipalities would be better to put federal land bank grants into providing services, such as sewage treatment plants and trunk sewers and power lines to housing land. "Our experience has been that land held by municipali- ties is subject to lie same pres- as that held by specula- tors. Both end by selling to the highest bidder." The association president said more planned land servicing by municipalities and quicker ap- proval of sub division plans 'could end the shortage of build ing land and put speculators ut of business. Mr. Wilson also called on to ease some o heir sub division require- ments such as lot side, road- allowance standards, pavinj equirements and burying o lines. While more municipal finan cing and relaxed sub division requirements may make things easier for builders, Mr. Wilson said building costs do not show any signs of levelling off. "Wages and material costs seep rising. You won't see atf revolution in building althoug we are experimenting continu ally with new methods and mat trials. "We're not sure that exper mental housing is the ans wer. But we believe govern mcnt owned and subsidize! housing is socially unde- he said. 'Far better to let a man bu his own house and subsidia his mortgage payments with th same municipal provincia federal money that now goe, directly into subsidized nous in until a tenant can manage all himself." LARGEST-KNOWN The largest-known o c t o p u measures up to 25 feet betwee the tips of its widespread arm otes attributed to Sir Peter I commissioner no disrespect, ere accurate. He explained at the high commissioner had sn attending a social function id did not realize what he ,id would be quoted in a news- iper. The officials declined com- ent. They said, "what might said while dancing, drinking, ning or chatting is a private oiler and scarcely calls for ublic comment." The Star gossip columnist No- ih McCabe, slie had overheard r Peter make the forecast or hether he made it directly to er. She wrote: "Even the ball patron, Sir elcr Hayman, the high cbm- issioner, loquacious, a reason- jly nimble dancer, was more lan a figure-head patron. And was certainly not the stuffy iplomat one Imagines a Brit- ;h ambassador would be. "In fact he made it quite evi- ent that he enjoys living in Ot- awa; he doesn't regard Cana- ians as 'colonials' and he ad- mires Prime Minister Trudeau. "He says he 'is the most ex- iting head of stale in the vorld' and thinks hell win the Oct. 30 federal wrote McCabc. These comments far down in he body of the column on ttie )pera Ball, caught iiie eye of Camp. A writer-commentator or several Canadian news- japers he is a former national of the Progressive Conservative party of Canada. [Jamp wrote: "The British High Commis- sioner was quoted in the press :he other day as saying of Trudeau that he was 'Hie most exciting head of state in the world.' Her Majesty's plenipotentiary in Canada added that he thought he'd win the election. "That sort of public rumina- tion from such a highly placed source gives me pause for thought. In another day and when Mackenzie King was with might have thought, of dispatching a gun- boat to stand off the Thames. "Or at least dispatch a stiff lillle note to the foreign office. But alas, both our gunboats are in for refit and our secretary of state is out on the hustings. "I mean Her Majesty's high nor even I'll wager him my copy of Lord. Byng's memoirs against a jar of English marmalade that he's wrong on both counts. That's a wager that rises from a natural impetuosity and follows an ex- amination of the first week's election wrote Damp. EDMONTON (CP) -Rene Levesque, leader of the separa- tist Parti Quebecois, is playing politics by claiming the armed forces have a file on the politi- cal activities of a Quebec labor group, Social Credit Leader Real Caouette says. "When one Is not afraid of himself and is not afraid for his actions, he would not care too much about such reports be- cause reports are made throughout Canada on different Mr. Caouetle said in an Interview. Mr. Levesque and Marcel Pe- pln, president of the Con- federation of National Trade Unions, had criticized the armed forces for having a re- port on the CNTU. No parole for murderers By JACK EAST WINNIPEG (CP) Con- vtcted murderers sentenced to life imprisonment should in many cases not be granted pa- role, New Democratic Party Leader David Lewis says. Mr. Lewis told a caller on an open-line radio program, aired shortly after his arrival here from a day of election cam- paigning in Regina, that he and his party are against capital punishment. "It doesn't assist in getting rid of crime and he said. "There are other ways of dealing with criminals than state killings." Murderers ought to get life imprisonment, "and they should not be released on parole in many cases." The chance of a sex offender repeating his crime, for in- stance, was "very great." Furthermore, said Mr. Lewis, a lawyer, he would make certain that those released on parole were put through a proper "psychiatric rehabilitation." Canada is at present experi- menting with a system under which capital punishment is re- served lor those who kill prison guards or policemen. The NDP leader was closely questioned about his party's chances in the Oct. 3 election. Asked by John Harvard, moderator of the program on CKY, how the NDP could be a contender when it had little hope of winning seats in Que- bec, Mr. Lewis replied testily: "Don't be so belligerent about it." "We expect to get votes from the Canadian public." At another point, Mr. Lewis said: "There will be many more New Democrats in nexl Parliament." Ginger Cat Sparkling White Wine Cocktail from GETS SUPPORT Premier Allan Bloken ey of Saskatchewan, right, and national New Democratic Party Leader David lewis were all smiles at Regina after Mr. Lewis got the support of the NDP's three provincial premiers.
