Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 28, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ballot changes color Thimdoy, 1972 7HE LETKB81DGE HERAID 9 OTTAWA (CP) The federal ballot has changed color for the Ocl. 30 election. Officials say they expect the change to more solid black, with a consequently-emphasized white spot for the voter's mark to reduce the number of ballots rejected at counting time. Another factor in new voting clarity is the expanded freedom in the way a voter can make his mark for the candidate he chooses. The old mandatory X is still acceptable but other marks count now too. Under the revised Canada El- ections Act of 1970, a candi- date's party affiliation can be listed on the ballot for the first time. That's a step to minimize the possibility of a vote for the wrong candidate. The new ballot slip is black, with white spaco only around each candidate's name. Oppos- te it, there is a circle where the Voter puts the mark. In previous elections, ballots have been while, with'only the printing in black and with an outlined block fan the voter to mark. Many voters marked the ballot in the wrong place. The only acceptable voting mark In previous elections was an X, using the black pencil provided in each polling booth. Anything else meant the ballot WBS rejected and not counted. That requirement has been scrapped this lime. The voter can make a check or tick to in- dicate choice and may use a writing instrument other than the voting booth pencil.

Prefinish an aver- age table for a little over A ballot will still be rejected a voter marks it for more ran one candidate or puts any lark on it which could identify m or her. In the last federal election une 25, 1968, rejections ran lightly more than one per cent out of ballots asl. Jean-Marc Htunel, chief lectoral officer, says many of le rejects clearly showed the oter's choice even though they violated the regulations. The old practice of running 'ringers" may be deterred by ,sting party affiliation. That's he intent. When the party label could not be included on the ballot, he voter had lo remember the lame and occupation or address of the party man he or she sought to elect. The "ringer" dea has been to get a candidate with the same or similar name as a party candidate, wilh the ntent to drain away some of the party candidate's votes. Insurance charges disproved TORONTO (CP> The Star says federal Manpower Minis- ter Bryce Mackasey has docu- ments tending to disprove elec- tion campaign charges that the overnment's new unemploy- ent insurance program con- ibules to unemployment by ncouraging idlers to free load. The newspaper says in an Ot- wa story an internal dossier aims that "more rigorous el- imination of eligibility" in the 2 months up to last Aug. 1 re- ulted in claims for ben- its being disallowed an in- rease of 89 per cent over the ervious 12-month period. The Star says the dossier will e used by Mr. Mackasey in a tepped-up defence of the insur- ance scheme, which has be- ome a major- campaiRi is- ue amid charges that admini- tration is lax and benefits are o high that many prefer not to vork. Mr. Mackasey's documents are described as saying that ince mid-July the Unemploy- ment Insurance Commission as started enforcing a new regulation requiring an insur- race claimant to "provide posi- ive evidence of his interest in >ecoming employed." Before hen, a claimant merely had to state he was available for work. The dossier also shows that a recent concentration on the 16- 25 age group resulted in claimants being found ineligible because they were not "avail- able, capable and willing to work." campaign Trudeau said fanning flames TORONTO (CP) Claude Wagner, Quebec's new Progres- sive Conservative chief, ac- cused Prime Minister Trudeau of fanning the separatist move- ment and invited its adliexents to lurn to the "imaginative and compassionate" leadership of his own party. In his first speech outside Quebec since returning lo poli- lics from the bench three weeks ago, the former provin- cial Liberal justice minister said the prime minister is "leading us ever closer to dis- integration" and is deceiving the country wilh claims that national unity has been achieved. While he had a deep faith In the federal system, he had no faith in the way it is being op- erated today or in the men run- ning it. Mr. Wagner's toughly-worded speech was delivered at a din- ner meeting of the Toronto Jun- ior Board of Trade, which also has invited Finance Minister John Turner to speak later in the camapign. He said the ordinary citizens of Quebec and the rest of Can- ada have the same concerns of being overtaxed, under- consulted and forgotten by Ihe Liberal government. It was' little wonder that Mr. Trudeau preferred to talk of "national inlegity" and "sovereignty in the Arctic." Such is the degree of decep- tion practised by the Trudeau he said, "that, having betrayed its com- mitment to the ordinary Cana- dian, it now seeks through so- phistry and profanity, through petulance and unconcern, to di- vert attention from the real is- sues of this campaign." Devoting much of his speech lo the separatist movement, Mr. Wagner said most observ- ers agree that the strength of :he Part! Quebecois has been increasing since 1B70, and the reason was "the frustrations and difficulties" of trying to op- erate the federal system under the present Ottawa govern- ment. The Trudeau government consisted of "narrow-minded, rigid men who feel that eH par Is of Canada must be forced into the same mould, men who think they and they alone know what is best for all areas of country, systematically refus- ing provincial suggestions and proposals on the spurious ground that national unity re- quires national uniformity."
