TOL OTO 235-2136 OTTAWA (CP) The new government leader in Senate likes to quote the old adver- tisement that went: "They laughed when I sat down to play the piano." Liberal Senator Ray Perrault (B.C.) counsels those skeptical about his ap- pointment as leader to wait with their brickbats until the returns are in. "I'm going to prove a thing or said the chunky, dy- namic political veteran in an interview as he enthusiastical- ly reeled off plans for the often-forgotten Senate. "I didn't come over here to maintain the status quo." Senator Perrault, 46, wants to see members of the 102-seat appointed body subject to strict guidelines regarding conflict of interest. "Public officials should be in the position of Caesar's they have to be beyond suspicion. "The same tough code of ethics that applies to civil ser- vants and the cabinet should apply to members of the House of Commons and the Senate." Last year it was reported that eight of the 22 members of the Senate committee on WM PHOTOGRAPHY 416 13th STREET N. We give of ourselves When we give GIFTS OF THE HEART.

"I think Canadian people want to see an end to conflict of said Senator Per- rault. He indicated that, in addi- tion to cleaning up their im- ages, members of the Senate will have to work harder in the coming Parliament to earn their annual salaries. "The resources available in the Senate are just remarkable. The knowledge of constitutional law, labor relations, business, finance, government and education is unparalleled." In addition to performing their official functions of representing regional interests and reviewing legislation passed by elected representatives in the House of Commons, senators could be called upon to do more of the type of research work traditionally assigned to royal commissions. Senator Perrault said mem- bers of the Senate, which meets three days a week when Parliament is in session, have the time to serve on com- missions investigating national problems and recommending solutions. "I think it would be of use to conduct a series of regional studies in northern British Co- lumbia, Western Canada, the North, Ontario, the Maritimes and Quebec. "We should endeavor to find the areas of difficulty but also decide on where links with the rest of Canada can be strengthened and developed." The intention was "not to usurp the primary House of Commons function of enacting legislation, but to assist in the development of better legisla- tion." "We've entered a more creative and modern era." Senator Perrault predicted significant changes in the structure of Senate in the next decade, but declined to speculate on specific reforms. "I don't think at this stage it should be made an elected body. "I anticipate that in the next 10 this is a per- sonal may see a redistribution of seats or an addition of seats with more seats given to expanding provinces. "And there may be a provin- cial input in the recommenda- tion of senators." Under the current set-up, Ontario and Quebec each have 24 senators, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick each have 10, Prince Edward Island has four senators and the other provinces have six each. All are appointed by the prime minister. There are six vacan- cies, one each in Alberta, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Ontario, Saskatchewan and Quebec. Aware of chronic com- plaints that Senate ap- pointments have been dished out as rewards to worn-out party hacks, Senator Perrault said: "You can't have a Senate made up of people from one party and I think the prime minister is aware of that particular problem." There now are 75 Liberals in the Senate, 17 Conservatives and four others. A Vancouver public relations and advertising man in private life, Senator Perrault said he wants to clear away some of the myths about the Senate, particularly the sentiment that most senators are worn-out poli- ticians who have retired at public expense. "Some of them may have served in public life, but there's nothing recycled about said Senator Perrault, who was mastermind of the last Liberal campaign in B.C., doubling his party's holdings there to eight seats in the July 8 federal election. Senator Perrault's political career started in 1959 when he was elected leader of the B.C. Liberal Party, a position he held until 1968. He switched to the federal field and won the Burnaby-Seymour riding in the 1968 general election, but was defeated when he tried for re-election in 1972. He was appointed to the Senate, Oct. 1. 1973. Critics have said appoint- ment to the Senate, where the average age is 63, was a step downstairs for a hustler like Ray Perrault.
