Array EUS sexism 'ignored by admin'
THE UBYSSEY
Vol. LXII, I
Vancouver, B.C. Thursday, February 14,1980
By JULIE WHEELWRIGHT
The UBC Women Students' Office is fed up with the sexist activities of the engineering
undergraduate society and is
challenging the UBC administration
to take action.
In a public statement Monday director Lorette Woolsey charged
that there has been no significant
attempt to stop sexist EUS activities
although administrators made promises to do so a year ago.
"No significant dimunition of
sexist activities took place as a result
of their efforts. In fact to my surprise, the most noticeable repercussion was a nasty, thinly veiled reference to the Women Students' Office and myself in the Red Rag (the
EUS newsletter) that year," she
said.
Woolsey said the November,
1979 EUS newsletter libelled one
woman and gave her home telephone number. The woman later received obscene telephone calls as a
result, she said.
Her statement was discussed at
the Tuesday dean's meeting but no
action has yet been taken.
Medicine dean William Webber
said he had no comment on the
meeting and added there will be
some statement on the EUS in the
future.
"I think at the moment all I
would say is that I'm not prepared
to comment at this point. I think
there will be comment (in the future)," said Webber.
Both dentistry dean George Beag-
rie and associate applied science
dean Axel Meisen declined to comment on the statement.
And Erich Vogt, administration
vice-president of student and faculty affairs, said the EUS has improved and claimed that The Ubyssey
and the student council have failed
to take a stand on the issue.
"The weakest link has been The
Ubyssey and the Alma Mater Society. Frankly there are many people
on this campus who feel the administration has been too strong on the
issue," he said.
He added both he and administration president Doug Kenny are
opposed to the Lady Godiva ride
and said there was no violence associated with last year's ride as there
had been in previous years.
And Vogt said he is doing everything he can to change attitudes but
added "changing attitudes takes
time and patience."
But Woolsey charged the EUS
has continued to harass and intimidate women on campus.
"We would strongly make the
case all sexist material be eliminated
from the (EUS) newsletter and the
Red Rag," she said.
EUS president Russ Kinghorn denies the charge the newsletter and
the organization is sexist, and uses
"hostile humor."
"Hostile humor, my ass. There
are a hell of a lot of people in our
organization that are fed up with
the Women Students' Office," he
said.
UBC food services
eats student cash

MY FALSE LOVER stole my rose, but, ah, she left the barbwire with me. New twist on old theme illustrates
1980s version of age-old dilemma now that love and war are so intertwined. Remember, venereal disease is
becoming more common and new varieties are found every day. This Valentine's don't be like Robbie and get
Burned.
UBC food services makes
$130,000 profit a year, director of
finance Len Clarke revealed to newly elected student council representatives Wednesday.
"Food services makes a 'contribution' of $150,000 a year. They
use this money to upgrade
facilities," Clarke told council.
"Guess who pays for it in the
end?"
Clarke said later food services
calls the profit a contribution in
their budget to conceal it. "They
present the budget in a weird
fashion, so they hide it. It doesn't
go anywhere, it stays in food services," he said.
Clarke told council food services
had plans to renovate SUB cafeteria
to include theme sections "such as
trains" with the money.
Acting council chair Chris Niwinski told the council they would see
their new president "before the end
of the term."
"Bruce (Armstrong) is out of the
hospital, he's currently at home. He
is, to my observation, functioning
perfectly normally," he said.
"Bruce assures me he should be
back by the end of the term," said
Niwinski, who was elected chairman at Armstrong's request.
Armstrong, a former student
board of governors representative,
suffered an aneurism in December
and was recently released from
hospital.
And external affairs officer Al
Soltis told council the B.C. liquor
administration board was
withholding liquor licences on campus pending a meeting with Alma
Mater Society representatives.
"There are five or six licences being held right now at the liquor
store at Fourth and Alma," Soltis
said.
Soltis added he, Clarke and AMS
business manager Bern Grady
would meet LAB officials next
week to discuss the problem.
Wednesday's meeting was the
first for" the students' council,
which replaces the former student
representative assembly under the
recently approved constitution.
'Pierre, Joe unfit to govern Canada'
By GEOF WHEELWRIGHT
Joe Clark and Pierre Trudeau should both
resign, says the editor of Canada's biggest
weekly national newsmagazine.
Maclean's head Peter C. Newman says the
Liberal and Tory leaders are both unfit to
govern the country. "It's obvious to all of us
that this country needs new leadership. The
future lies not between Clark and Trudeau
but beyond Clark and Trudeau," he says.
"Trudeau's been around 11 years now,
he's really had a chance to show what he can
do. And in my view he cannot govern this
country. He's not flexible enough, he only
understands Quebec and doesn't understand
most of what makes this country go."
In a personal interview at a Vancouver
hotel Tuesday, Newman attacked Clark's
leadership as vigorously as Trudeau's.
"You've got in Clark a man incapable of
commanding the respect of not only the
country, but of his cabinet and his colleagues. We've just got to get new leaders,"
says Newman.
He says Ed Broadbent's NDP alternative is
not realistic because the party will never win
seats in Quebec. "In Quebec you can say it's
disgraceful and it's unfair, but it's true. In
Quebec many people still think that socialism
and communism are the same thing."
Newman also defends what many politicians have said is an over emphasis on the national party leaders.
"The press has been condemned and I've
been condemned for making this campaign
into a personality contest. That is true, but
what else is there?
"It's really hard to talk about policies
when the Tories have policies that are not
new, the Liberals have no policies and the
-'Ht} ■ '-.mm,'!.
NDP policies will never be more than a platform because they'll never get in."
Newman says there has been a considerable shift in the country's economic
power since he wrote The Canadian
Establishment, a bestseller which
documented the lives and dealings of the
powerful business elite in Canada. "There
have been changes, one is the complete and
absolute death of Montreal as a power centre. It's gone, there's nothing there."
The shift of power to Western Canada and
the replacement of many important business
leaders are other major economic changes in
Canada, he said. "The five dominant personalities in my first volume — they're all
dead." Newman is currently writing a sequel
to the Canadian Establishment to elaborate
on these changes.

Food and moot rot
What if the Alma Mater Society
held an annual general meeting and
nobody came?
It was a close call on Tuesday
when only two students and 17 student hacks turned out for the 61st
edition of the event, falling short of
quorum by 2,282 bodies.
And the coffee and doughnuts
advertised to lure students to the
meeting went largely unconsumed.
The $100 budgeted for refreshments
cost the AMS $50 per student.
Without the 10 per cent student
population turnout needed for
quorum, the meeting was only
legally authorized to deal with a few
simple matters, said AMS finance
director Len Clarke.
AMS administration director
Craig Brooks said he is not surprised at the poor turnout. "Who's going to show up to approve the
auditors?" Brooks said. "But I
would have liked to have seen a better turnout from the undergrad
societies and clubs."
The students who attended passed motions approving reports from
the society's auditors, the AMS
general manager and the AMS
president and a motion approving
the AMS' 1979 balance sheet.
That last time the AMS achieved
quorum at an annual meeting was
in 1975. That year the society lured
students to the meeting with a
Trooper   concert.

Student tax break '
By GLEN SANFORD
The current $50 income tax allowance for students should not be
increased, Vancouver Quadra Liberal candidate Peter Pearse said yesterday.
A tax break for all students regardless of income is unfair to the
poor, he told 200 students in SUB at
an all-candidates meeting. "I would
favor a tax credit which would give
every student the same percentage
off their income tax," he said.
Quadra Tory candidate Bill
Clarke said he also supports increasing the allowance. "The $50
allowance for students is clearly inadequate," he said.
Quadra NDP candidate Alan
Bush was not specific on the issue
but said he believed in universal accessibility to education.
And all three candidates  from
Power is shifting west
Newman tells students
From page 1
He predicts a Liberal victory in
the Feb. 18 election, with the Grits
making major gains in Quebec.
"I've seen a private poll that was
taken in—Quebec just a week ago
and the Social Credit vote is down
from 16 per cent to 2.5 per cent. It
indicates that even the Social Credit
seats are going to go Liberal. The
Conservatives will be lucky to elect
one member," says Newman.
But he says a Liberal victory will
cause increasing regional
dissatisfaction in Western Canada,
because Ontario and Quebec will
cause the victory, not the West. "I
think it would help strengthen the
forces of Western separatism. It
would fuel them," he says.
He said a Liberal win would also
be politically helpful to the Quebec
referendum campaign, because
traditional Trudeau confrontation
tactics would allow Quebec premier
Rene Levesque to "grandstand" to
independence campaign.
"It would help Levesque because
Trudeau is a centralist. If Trudeau
got in Levesque would become
stronger."
Following the interview,
Newman spoke to students in SUB
at UBC.
to poor'
major parties agreed that the student housing situation needs improvement.
Clarke said the housing problem
will be handled effectively by the
Canadian Mortgage and Housing
Corporation. He said CMHC has
done a good job so far and promised to encourage it to continue the
good work.
"I understand that there are
some problems with student housing and renovations are needed.
Those applications will be dealt
with by the CMHC. If I can assist in
any way with housing improvement
I certainly will."
But Bush said he disagreed with
Clarke's assessment. "I certainly
wouldn't want him (Clarke) to go
back to Ottawa and encourage
CMHC to continue as it has."
He said the corporation was ineffective but added that the solution
to the problem lay in an improved
CMHC. He also called the concept
of turning the Walter Gage residence low-rise into a hotel ridiculous.
Pearse said the most important
need for student housing at UBC
right now is renovations.
'B.C. judges
ill-informed'
By RANDY HAHN
B.C. judges are often ill informed
and out of touch with reality, a
Vancouver lawyer said Wednesday.
"They don't have any experience
with living," Dianne Davidson told
60 people in Law 162. "You get to
be a supreme court judge by belonging to the correct party or not
becoming a member of either."
Davidson said homosexuals do
not enjoy the same protection
under the Human Rights code of
B.C. as others.
"The Human Rights Code of
B.C. has some protection for
homosexuals, but it's not exactly
clear" she said. Davidson said
judges are unable to understand gay
cases. "The judges in those courts
are of a generation that does not
understand that to be homosexual is
to be normal. It depends on their intelligence as to how eloquent the
judge's excuses are."
Daviuson s<uu sexual onentaticn
should be added to the Human
Rights code to make discrimination
against gays illegal. She said the
Quebec Human Rights code has
such provisions. "Quebec is the
most civilized province in the Dominion about this sort of thing."
Davidson later passed around a
poster promoting a local art exhibit
that showed a photograph of a nude
young girl. "In a very respectable
upper middle class gallery there's a
picture of a young female person in
an erotic position done by a man,"
she said.
But Davidson added the same
picture shown in different circles in
Ontario might have drawn severe
criticism. Ontario courts are now
hearing a case involving the Body
Politic, a magazine that published
articles that allegedly exploited
young males, she said.
Davidson said at least 13 per cent
of B.C.'s population is homosexual
and predicted the legal system will
respond to the growing minority.
"Pretty soon it'll be over and the
laws will be changed."
She said homosexuals facing legal
problems are often charged with
gross indecency. "It's such a rotten
thing to do to anybody," she said.
Davidson said one judge decided
that two heterosexuals kissing was
beautiful but two homosexuals kissing was gross indecency.
Davidson said she was recently
involved in a case in which Richmond police had set up videotape
equipment in a public washroom to
monitor alleged sexually indecent
activities. She said the police were
extremely uncooperative. "Such
hostility ... I was blown away."
Davidson said she devotes much
of her practice to family law and
added that custody cases involving
gays can be very complex.
Davidson said she usually advises
her clients not to admit their
homosexuality to their spouses
because it is often used against
them. She said gays might do better
to confess to a priest.
"I really think those priests sitting there have little else to do," she
said. "The priest is undoubtedly
dead with boredom and can't be
subpoenaed."
Davidson said she also
advises her clients to stay away
from social service workers. "Don't
talk to psychiatrists and social
workers, especially social workers,"
she said.
SFU waits at stop
for bus solution
No relief is in sight for Simon
Fraser University's transit problems.
There will be little or no improvement in transit service to SFU for at
least six months to a year, said a
B.C. Hydro transit spokesman.
"We're in a position now where
we are already past the six to eight
month approval time for any new
plans," Barry Sanford, B.C. Hydro
transit planning supervisor, said
Wednesday. "We are not allowed
to give the go-ahead to any new
plans without the approval of the
GVRD (Greater Vancouver
Regional District) or the Urban
Transit Authority."
Control of B.C. Hydro's transit
operations will become the responsibility of the GVRD on April 1.
But the GVRD has no plans yet to
handle the SFU transit problem,
said Nancy Grant, GVRD planning
department information officer.
"When we will get down to
specific issues, I don't know. We
won't even be looking at it (SFU)
within the next little while," she
said.
Sanford said SFU's problem is
largely the result of Hydro buses being unable to drive up the steep
Curtis Street hill leading to the
university. He added there are only
five high-powered buses in Hydro's
fleet that can handle the hill, and all
of them are currently in service on
the SFU route.
He said more of the special buses
can be purchased, but it takes
several months to have them built.
And the power to approve such a
decision is now out of Hydro's
hands, Sanford said.
Another alternative to the bus
shortage would be to build a new
road to the top of Burnaby Mountain, he said. And Sanford added a
proposed road has already been
surveyed and could be built in short
order.
The road would be a direct extension of East Hastings St. and would
have a grade of eight per cent compared to the 18 per cent grade of the
Curtis St. hill, he said. Sanford said
the extension would make it possible to use Hydro's regular buses on
the route.
But SFU ancillary services director Chuck Buchanan said the road
plan is no closer to fruition that it
was 12 years ago.
"It was in the original plans for
the universiiy, but they (the provincial government and municipality)
never got around to building it," he
said.
The road plan was recently accepted in principle by the Burnaby
municipal council's transport committee, said Burnaby transport
planner Peter Liivamagi. But he
said no implementation schedule has
yet been approved.
"This road has been placed in the
municipal transport plan for early
implementation, but it's an expensive project along a primary arterial
(East Hastings St.) so it won't be
happening for a while," said
Liivamagi.
The project is currently scheduled
to start in 1982-83, he said. Page 4
THE    UBYSSEY
Thursday, February 14,1980
Erich and Doug
are full of shit
Bullshit.
That's all it is, bullshit.
Administration vice-president Erich Vogt's statement that The
Ubyssey has failed to take a stand on the sexist activities of the
engineers is bullshit.
His claim some people on campus feel the administration has
taken too strong a stand on the issue is bullshit.
And his statement the administration is doing everything they
can to change the attitudes of the gears is bullshit.
Vogt, and the administration he is speaking for, have deliberately
misstated the facts.
If the administration wanted to stop the sexist Lady Godiva ride,
it could do so.
If the administration wanted to stop the sexist Red Reg, it could
do so.
If the administration wanted to stop the degrading and physically
threatening actions of the engineering undergraduate society
towards the women students' office, it could do so.
But it won't.
When applied science dean Matin Wedepohl was at the University of Manitoba last year, he told a reporter for Canadian University
Press that he would stop the Lady Godiva ride. But he won't.
Administration president Doug Kenny has said he deplores the
ride and the Rag. But stop it? He won't.
And Vogt has said changing the gears' attitudes takes "time and
patience." But the women students' office, after all this time, has
no more patience. And neither do many of the people on this campus and in this city.
The women students' office has presented a public statement on
the sexist activities of the EUS to all members of the administration
on campus. The statement informs them an EUS newsletter has
published the name and phone number of a woman leader on campus, and tells the administration that the woman received threatening and obscene phone calls.
And the statement informs the administration, including all
faculty deans, that legal representation was made to Kenny's office
on the matter.
Kenny, Vogt and the administration cannot claim ignorance.
They cannot claim good intentions. They cannot claim purity.
All they can do is throw bullshit.
And that has to stop before the sexist attitudes of the gears ever
will.

Kevin Finnegan sat in the background, sad that such talent was wasted in such a backwater of intellectual blandness and the money as manager, was crummy
too. Geof Wheelwright dimmed the lights," Come on you pre-pubescent kindergarten midgets of the acting world, get your asses on the stage," he yelled at
the trembling Gary Brookfield and Erica Leiren, who were booked to do a kinky dog routine with whipped cream and ballons. Randy Hahn, after achieving total

Trudeau Galluping toward new government
In this final election week it
might be appropriate to consider
some of the factors likely to influence the results — this, as well as
to venture some criteria for whom
to vote.
The Gallup and television network polls show Trudeau's party
well on its way to a sizeable victory;
this naturally rankles the media
somewhat as it deprives this drama
of its excitement. And this very an-
ticlimactic possibility — that the
election is a foregone conclusion —
may serve to drive the im-
impressionable to alter their
predilections and vote Tory.
So be it. The main point in all this
is the acknowledgement that the
ultimate course of Canadian destiny
will not depend on whether
Trudeau or Clark — or even Broadbent — is elected: our politicians
can only really give to us the sum
total of our own deserving. Energy,
inflation, unemployment — these
problems are resolved finally only
by the collective will of the people,
the willingness to assume responsibility for the quality of our own
lives.
But there is within this law of just
rewards — and consequences — a
factor of leadership and we cannot
simply make Pierre Trudeau the excuse for all the unhappiness Canadians suffered during the alleged
disaster of his reign.
Trudeau has bent his will to
reform his arrogant tendencies —
this, at the behest of his advisors,
who naturally wish to minimize the
chances of a recrudescence of the
electorate's anger and resentment.
But alas, we are deprived of the
very qualities that make Trudeau
the unique albeit controversially
brilliant politician that he is.
Well, we must suffer through this
contrivance, knowing as we do that
if he is elected he will — having
been suitably humbled — find a
balance between his former defiant
posture and his newly erected 'team
approach.' However, we should
remember what he appeared to be
to us when he abdicated, for it was
only then that we were able to objectify his real stature; now, with
the virtual assurance of his reascen-
sion to power we may begin once
again to deny to him the fresh
possibility of success — in a kind of
underlying resentment, surfacing
again in the spectre of his enthronement.
No, there is something in the
traditional notion of nobility and
elegance which should accompany a
leader of a country, and we assume
Trudeau's intelligence and imagination cannot after all become completely disadvantageous to his ruling style. We should elect the party
that possesses the most concentrated mass of bright, vital and
creative consciousness. This would
seem to be a choice between the
New Democratic party, a party of
vision and integrity, and the
Liberals, a party of tradition and
distinction.

Kingsway MP and NDP candidate
for the riding, revealed that the
CCF was then the only major party
that opposed the relocation of B.C.
Japanese residents to the interior
during the second world war. This
fact points out the implicit
discrimination in the Liberal and
Conservative parties.
Regardless of national security,
the Japanese incident in B.C. during the second world war was unjustified, and a tremendous embar
rassment of Canadian history. The
Japanese residents that were
relocated during the war were
similar to the Chinese minority
presently in B.C. — both groups
were mainly Canadian born. Given
that the hysteria of a major war
would again be faced by Canada,
what assurance would the Chinese
minority have of not being deported
or relocated?
The Liberal and Conservative
governments have resorted to
limited immigration because of
their failures to stimulate the
economy. Now all we need is a
"real change" in government. One
that is realistic and can challenge
the two perennial flip-flops. Real
change would mean new economic
policies, a true commitment to all
minority groups, and democratic
socialism — the NDP.

And these little pigs went to market • • •
Once upon a time, in a land far, far away,
there lived a chinless little boy who wanted to
be king. This ambition, while not entirely
common among chinless people, was not unheard of. It led him to the west where as a
young man he flunked out of a prominent
law school; he was well on his way.
After years of hard work (much of it spent
on his knees) he became leader of a powerful,
but misguided group of vacuum-headed
aardvarks. After two more years of hard
perspectives
work and random promising, he managed
(with the help of a passing wave of discontent
caused by the reigning king's penchant for referring to the peasants as "cabbage-breathed
cretins") to overthrow the king.
After 11 years as king (the last few spent
without his queen, who had run off with a
roving band of gypsies) the ex-king found it
hard to adjust to being just another nebbish
ferret. At first he rode along on the rapidly
eroding support of his party, a loose conglomeration of ferrets, mice and other mis
cellaneous rodents, but he soon became discontent with the new king's bungling. Resigning in an attempt to gain sympathy, and
with the help of a small group of benevolent
brown bears, he began to plot the overthrowing of the king.
Inferring that the king's new budget was
designed to help support the king's newfound coke habit, the ferrets and bears wooed the almost extinct wombat (only five remained) with promises of support for their
rapidly decaying wombatiste party into abstaining from the approaching conflict.
At the next meeting of the king's council,
the brown bear's leader — a baggy-eyed ole
bruin — told the members of the council that
the king was a repugnant old goat with a
$3,000-a-day coke habit and, since the budget was designed to support this addiction,
the budget should not be passed. The bear's
leader also accused the king's budget of
catering to the blue-eyed cocaine sheiks to the
west. In the rising dust of the scandal, the
king — who was out getting a fix — and his
party went down to defeat. The stage was set
for the rodent leader's come back.
Quickly but reluctantly renouncing his re
tirement the rodent leader stepped back into
the fray. Rapidly grasping the reins of his
party (while outwardly appearing reluctant)
he began a program of half-truths and evasiveness which gave his party the greatest
popularity it had enjoyed in eons. However,
the other parties were not idle.
The chinless aardvark leader — the just-
deposed king — and his infinitely more intelligent queen were determined to regain the
throne. Criss-crossing the land proclaiming
that he had not had enough time to revive the
countries failing snow-tire industry (the tires
were made from the country's vast natural
deposits of snow), he pleaded with the people
to give him one more chance. Across the
land, he was met with quiet scepticism and
lack of interest.
The bears started a strong campaign, but
were not greeted warmly due to the activities
in other lands of their distant relatives, the
communistic cave bears. However, they were
assured of. a modicum of support from bewildered, idealistic, and bleary-eyed St. Bernards.
The wombatistes had not received any of
the promised support from the bears and fer
rets, save that they could use the ferrets'
Xerox machine from midnight to one in the
morning at five cents a copy. Less than overwhelmed by this show of generosity, the
wombatistes set out on a campaign of eye-
gouging and back-stabbing. Campaigning to
the west, they were totally ignored due to
their inability to speak the natives' language.
Disheartened by this dismal failure, they set
out for their home ground. Alas, on their
way they encountered a mass of lemming-like
creatures (thought by some to be employed
by the ferrets) and were carried off into oblivion.
At the same time, in a distant land, things
were downright depressing for the neighboring country. Fifty of that country's population (fog-headed bald eagles) were being held
hostage in a donut shop in a foreign land by
religious fanatics. Threatening to 'dip' the
hostages in molten chocolate unless their former leader (a hard-nosed reptile with a
toothy grin) was returned, along with Bo
Derek, to be marinated in heavy oil, the fanatics also demanded a large bucket of fried
frog's legs with bean dip.

THE    UBYSSEY
Thursday, February 14,1980
Liberals
are born
again
In an election campaign that
has given new meaning to the
word cynical and has completely emphasized defeat rather
than victory, there can be no
winners.
But when the last ballot boxes
are emptied Feb. 18, all reports
indicate Canada will have a new
Liberal government under an
old leader. In these reports from
the various regions it is clear
that despite a late upsurge in
Conservative strength, the Liberals have an apparently insurmountable lead. The question is
whether or not the party which
was thrown out by voters only
last May will be able to gain a
majority.
The election will also serve to
solidify regional cleavages along
political party lines. The NDP
will strengthen its position as
the official opposition in the increasingly wealthy four western
provinces, while the Liberal
electoral fortress of Quebec will
be seen as the only thing that
enables them to maintain national power. And the kingmaker role of Ontario will once
again be resented in the rest of
the country.
Students, more than in any
election in recent memory, have
played a key role in the campaign. But more often than not
the parties main interest has
been in using students as backdrops for television clips. Issues
of concerns to students, such as
improved student aid, funding
of post-secondary education,
employment and research and
development funding, have
generally taken a back seat to
energy and leadership.
NDP leeks t<
in tight B.C.
By TOM HAWTHORN
of The Ubyssey
The Liberals' big red machine,
apparently driving on the other side
of the Rockies, is sputtering and
stuck in neutral in B.C.
And while the national trend of
Liberal resurgence is visible here,
most feel it is too little, too late.
The campaign has been quiet,
despite scores of politicians hitting
hustings in what could prove to be
the decisive province early in the
morning of Feb. 19.
The Conservatives remain the
most popular party, followed by the
NDP and the strengthening Liberals, but many think the 19 seats
they won last May was the most
they could get in a province where
voters change party preference
about as often as most people
change socks. It's that Tory slippage — mostly in the Kamloops
area and the urban Lower Mainland
— that both the Liberals and NDP
are trying to snare.
The campaign has been quite
monotonous, and the electorate has
responded with a "ho hum, we've-
seen-it-all-before" attitude. Few
real issues have materialized. Even
fisheries, the traditional battleground, has not been mentioned as
an issue. The sole local issue bandied about has in fact rapidly become
a non-issue. The funding of the
bankrupt Trident Tri-gul float
plane has failed to spark interest
even in the Capilano riding of Ron
Huntington, who was the minister
responsible for denying the project
federal funds, where the factory
was located.
With few issues to speak of, and
an electorate that went through it
twice in May with a simultaneous
provincial campaign, this battle is
being fought on a riding by riding
basis with rhetoric, the party line
and leadership in the front lines.
All of this spells good news for
the New Democrats. NDP organizers have selected eight key ridings
they have a chance of winning and
are pouring money and workers into them. Campaign funds, depleted
after snatching eight seats here in
May, have been pouring in from
party supporters and, in particular,
unions fearful of the anti-labor legislation of both the Liberals and
Tories. Union support means plenty
to the NDP in this, the most unionized province.
And while NDP voters' hiking
boots can be heard thump-thumping on election day whatever the
weather, as local organizers have it,
the Liberals are finding that the increased support they're receiving is
eroding almost as quickly as they
check it off the canvassing lists. The
Liberals have virtually no grassroots organization, and some are
predicting they will even be denied
the single seat they won last May in
Vancouver Centre.
As for the Tories, they stand to
lose a couple of seats to the NDP in
the Interior, especially in the Kootenays, but most Tory seats are still
safe in Canada's thumpingest bible
belt. And if the Liberals are to be
denied a majority and/or the NDP
is to hold the balance of power — as
seems likely — these are the ridings
to watch on Feb. 18.
Vancouver Centre — Canada's
glamorous riding, Centre boasts
three "strong" candidates, and the
parties have been throwing around
promises and party retreads like
never before to woo this former
Liberal bastion. Current Liberal
Art Phillips, who won the riding by
only 95 votes after recounts, is said
to be in serious trouble. A recent
newspaper poll had Conservative
Pat Carney and New Democrat Ron
Johnson tied, with Phillips trailing
by seven percentage points.
This is the province's closest race.
Carney and Phillips are both cabinet material, while Johnson would
become a major member of the
NDP caucus if he won in his fourth
try for the seat.
Vancouver East — East is a tradi-
Ontario, once again, holds the key
By BILL TIELEMAN
National Bureau Chief
of Canadian University Press
OTTAWA — Stripped bare of any innovative policies, fresh directions or new
faces, the key to the Liberal campaign in
this election depends on Ontario voters giving the emperor yet another set of new
clothes.
And by all indications Pierre Trudeau
will squeeze into a tight fitting wardrobe on
Feb. 18, courtesy of the province's fickle
tailors.
CLARK
et tu, Ontario?
Clearly the Liberals have been running a
threadbare campaign, introducing old
policies as new and attacking the Conservatives for following the lead they set in 11
years of power. Despite that and despite the
fact that they were convincingly exiled to
the political hinterland by Ontario in May,
the party is back on top in the province's
southern swing ridings, especially in Metro
Toronto's crucial 29 ridings.
With impregnable strength in Quebec
and a smattering of seats in the Atlantic the
Liberals need only to recoup some of their
May losses in Ontario to come up with a
minority government. Should the Tories be
convincingly rejected here and the Liberals
manage to improve on their meagre three
seats in the West, a majority is possible.
In an election that seems all but decided
the only question is whether Joe Clark and
the Conservative strategists can parlay some
good press from the Iranian embassy
escapade and the hesitancy of Trudeau, or
more precisely his handlers to take any
chances, into enough votes to forestall a
return to Liberal majority government.
No one in Ontario is foolish enough to
bet their mortgage deductibility money on
Clark returning as anything except the MP
from Yellowhead but there is a sympathy
vote definitely developing. The Tories' desperate attempt to goad Trudeau into any
confrontation and their move to turn Clark
completely loose with the normally hostile
press and public are a calculated risk, a last
ditch attempt to get a turnaround in the
polls that show Canada's first Conservative
government since Diefenbaker going down
the tubes.
But if Joe Clark is twisting slowly in the
wind it's obvious that the noose was slipped
on by his own hand. Every gas pump in this
province that despises Alberta and all it
stands for is an election advertisement:
Vote Tory and see energy prices jump to
Peter Lougheed's command. No matter
what noises Clark and finance minister
John Crosbie make about enjoying campaigning on their budget, in Ontario it
would be more popular to promise the re-
introduction of bubonic plague.
Even provincial Conservatives have
castigated their federal counterparts for the
budget and its crippling cost in Ontario. A
prominent Liberal ad quotes provincial
treasurer Frank Miller's well-publicized
criticism of the budget. And premier Bill
Davis, who knows how to stay on the right
side of the political fence, let Clark take the
heat in Ontario alone while he tanned in
Florida through the first weeks of the campaign. Only pressure from the newspapers
and Ontario Conservatives prompted him
to return and grandly endorse Clark too
late in the game to help.
If Clark is desperate, NDP leader Ed
Broadbent is not exactly confident about
his home province. While the party has
replaced the Liberals as the official opposition in four of the country's ten provinces,
in Ontario increasingly hard campaigning
BROADBENT ... left out in the cold
isn't paying off. Despite a conscious decision to move the party to the right in the
hopes of picking up the disaffected Liberal
vote, the polls show no significant gains for
the NDP.
Essentially this campaign which emphasizes voting against, rather than for, a
party and its leader has come down to a
question of who constitutes the lesser of
two evils for Ontario. Despite a previous
multitude of sins, the Liberals will get the
votes that count on election night and Joe
Clark, the devil they hardly knew at all, will
likely become a historical trivia question.
Look for major Liberal gains in Toronto
and southern Ontario, traditional Tory support to continue in central Ontario and the
rural ridings and a few NDP gains in the
north. GREAT WHITE HOPE:
I like playing with you.

races
tional NDP seat that Liberal Art
Lee stole in 1974 after some shoddy
NDP campaign strategy. But the
NDP's Margaret Mitchell took it
back in May by 1,300 votes. A line
can be drawn in the middle of the
riding — Chinatown in the west is
staunchly Liberal as is the large
Italian community, while the NDP
dominates in the eastern part of the
riding bordering Burnaby. The Tories are of consequence only in that
the NDP feels a strong Conservative showing will hold back the Liberals.
Burnaby — New Democrat
Svend Robinson, a former UBC
student board of governors member, won this riding by 1,600 votes
over Conservative Hugh Mawby.
Liberal Doreen Lawson was a distant third. It is an exact rematch
this time, with Robinson's saving
grace the presence of 4,000 Simon
Fraser University students who
weren't in the riding last time. If
they have bothered to register, he'll
be back with a larger majority.
Kootenay West, Kootenay East-
Revelstoke — These two ridings
both went Tory in May, with the
NDP less than 2,000 votes behind.
It's been a horse race in this Interior
riding since December.
Cowichan-Malahat-The Islands
— Part of former national NDP
leader Tommy Douglas' riding, this
is an NDP bastion that went to
Conservative Don Taylor. NDP
candidate Jim Manly, a quiet-
spoken minister, has been working
on getting elected since May 23.
NDP organizers expect to have it
safely back in the fold this time
around.
North Vancouver-Burnaby —
The Liberals' brightest hope and
best candidate on the west coast,
Gordon Gibson, is once again challenging Tory incumbent Chuck
Cook, a former radio hotliner.
Cook was a surprise winner in May,
and the Gibson people have yet to
forgive themselves for their candidate's loss. Gibson might prevail
this time, but his organizers aren't
about to underestimate Cook's
popularity.
Skeena—The NDP's Jim Fulton was barely able to scrape past
Liberal favorite Iona Campagnolo
in B.C.'s surprise upset last May.
Life should be easier for Fulton on
Monday night. Angry at her unexpected defeat, Campagnolo threw a
wrench in the Liberal party
machine. They have yet to recover.
Vancouver-Quadra—UBC
economics professor Peter Pearse is
running a tight, slick campaign in
this Tory bastion, but it looks like a
60-day campaign is just too short to
match Tory incumbent Bill Clarke's
7,000 vote plurality.
Clarke, who is widely known in
the riding as The Invisible Man, is
no great politician and should be in
trouble the next federal election if
Pearse runs again.
There are 8,000 UBC student voters in Quadra who were absent in
May, and they are expected to split
between Pearse and New Democrat
Alan Bush.
Vancouver-Kings way—The
Liberals' bizarre Simma Holt is
back for another try at this
predominantly working-class
riding, but poor campaigning lieavs
her little chance to beat NDPer Ian
Waddell and return to Ottawa.
Holt's biggest stumbling block to
victory is Kingsway's 4,000 member
Chinese community, which will
again actively campaign for Waddell. '
MAY STANDINGS
PRAIRIES:
Tories solid as ever in
nation's breadbasket
Tories ahead by
two country
miles in Alberta
By KEITH KRAUSE
of The Gateway
EDMONTON — In the midst of
Tory country, the current federal
election campaign is almost a non-
event.
All 21 Alberta seats will go Tory,
most by large margins, so most of
the interest has been focused on the
Conservative nomination meetings,
some of which have been hotly contested.
Three MPs, Eldon Woolliams,
Ged Baldwin and Paul Yewchuk
chose not to seek renomination in
their ridings. This created some interesting internal party fights, most
notably among the nine contenders
for the nomination in the Peace
River constituency.
Athabasca, Yewchuks' former
riding, could be the closest race in
the province in years. The riding
has just over 40,000 voters, and is
the third largest in Canada. It also
has a high native population (more
than 20 per cent) and it appears
these votes will go Liberal or NDP
this time. If the Liberals can capture most of this vote and the turnout is high, the race could be very
close. But the NDP candidate has
strong enough ties with the native
community to split the vote.
Despite the certain Tory sweep,
both the Liberals and the NDP will
increase their share of the popular
vote from their dismal 1979 showing. This is not surprising since in
the last election the Conservatives
had 66 per cent of the Alberta vote,
the Liberals 22 per cent and the
NDP only 10 per cent.
Little has changed for the diehard
Tories. Doug Roche, a well known
"Red" Tory, even faced a strong
right wing backlash in his riding
which almost cost him the nomination. Fortunately for him, the national party executive agreed that
holding a nomination meeting at 8
a.m. two days after Christmas was
not an unfair tactic.
Saskatchewan
New Democrats
stuck in neutral
By MARTINA FREI I AG
Prairie Bureau Chief
for Canadian University Press
While the Saskatchewan electorate votes overwhelmingly NDP in
provincial elections, the New
Democrats have so far been unable
to translate this into a large base of
federal support.
This is not expected to change by
Feb. 18.
The New Democrats could win
one or two ridings in addition to the
five they currently hold but it will
happen in spite of severe internal
dissention within the party over premier Alan Blakeney's handling of
the recent strike of Saskatchewan's
civil service.
The apparent anti-labor position
taken by Blakeney is an issue which
is dogging New Democrat candidates at town hall meetings all over
the province.
The new element in this election
is Liberal policies which appear to
accommodate more of the farm
vote than the Tories: the Liberal rebate plan for farm fuels on the gasoline excise tax and rail policies.
According to NDP estimates,
higher interest rates and the Tory
excise tax amount to another $2,200
in operating costs for most farmers.
But the really close races in May
had the Tories neck and neck with
the New Democrats, and if the
NDP hold their votes, the Liberals
will merely split the non-NDP vote
if they pick up any of the Tory
slack.
Political pundits predict the Conservatives will win back John Diefenbaker's old Prince Albert riding
which was lost to Stan Hovdebo of
the NDP during last fall's by-
elections.
Broadbent has hit that riding —
like the other close ridings of Assin-
iboia, Humboldt-Lake Centre and
Battleford-Meadow Lake — with a
campaign of close provincial/federal solidarity.
Broadbent is, of course, touting
Saskatchewan as a model of resource development policy — and,
to some extent, of NDP governance.
Lyon a thorn
in Manitoba
Tory chances
By MIKE McEVOY
of The Uniter
WINNIPEG — The Tories took
a severe pounding in Canada's keystone province last May and much
of their drop in popularity was attributed to the restraint program of
provincial Conservative premier
Sterling Lyon.
This time round Conservative
strategists have conveniently sent
Lyon on successive vacations — a
month in Australia and then onto
Florida where he is currently hiding
out.
The plan may prove ineffective.
The PCs feel they have a good
chance of taking back Selkirk-Inter-
lake from NDP defence critic Terry
Sergeant who won the riding last
time by only 500 votes. To enhance
their chances the federal and provincial .governmepts, have jointly
announced their intentions to at
tract a helicopter factory to a major
city in the riding.
On other fronts though, the Conservatives appear to be on the
ropes. In the northern riding of
Dauphin the PCs will have to patch
internal differences if they hope to
stave off the New Democrats, who
came within just 400 votes of defeating Gordon Ritchie last time.
But Ritchie was defeated at the riding's nomination meeting by a Dauphin dentist and many viewed this
as a purge engineered from the PC
party headquarters in Winnipeg. It
might be just the edge NDP candidate Laverne Lewycky needs as he
seeks election for the third consecutive time.
In Winnipeg-St. James incumbent Bob Lane will face a double-
barrelled thrust from both the Liberals and the NDP. Lane edged
New Democrat Frank Syms by 500
votes last May and the NDP has
thrown all its top organizers into
the riding this time. Political insiders give Liberal Richard Mercier an
outside chance of victory on the basis of some private polls taken in the
constituency. If the contenders are
to be judged on organization alone,
the NDP should win this riding.
The Liberals, who captured two
seats in Manitoba in 1979, will likely consolidate their position.
Lloyd Axworthy should have no
trouble winning the Winnipeg-Fort
Garry riding because of the national
exposure he has received as the
chief Liberal critic of the PC's mortgage deductibility plan.
The rest of the province will be
taking a status quo posture.
The February final results will
probably show a further slide in
Conservative support with the NDP
picking up one and possibly two
seats.

THE    UBYSSEY
Thursday, February 14,1980
• • • and these little piggies stayed home
From page 5
Due to the unreasonable nature of this last
demand, the eagle nation threatened to hold
its breath until it turned blue. Pleading to its
friends for help in this crisis, the eagles developed (from the collective cold shoulders
they received) a severe case of frost bite. Unbeknownst to them, help was on the way.
By chance, several aardvark emissaries had
come to the aid of six wandering eagles in the
land of the donut shop. Cleverly disguising
the eagles as beavers, they smuggled them to
safety in large cartons labelled "beaver feet."
Back in the homeland of the aardvarks, the
bumbling deposed king knew nothing of
what was occurring in this distant land. How
ever, when news of this escapade spread the
king and one of his leading cabinet ministers
(a particularly innocuous female aardvark)
took 97.78 per cent of the credit, hoping for
political salvation. The question arose, was it
enough? Apparently not, as the ferrets continued to lead in the opinion polls, although
not by as much as they had to begin with.
The deposed king claimed that opinion polls
didn't amount to or count for diddly-spit.
The battle dragged on with all parties engaged in mudslinging and grave digging. In
an attempt to gain more support the aardvark leader sacrificed the national hockey
team. This move backfired, and in addition
to losing support for him, it placed amateur
hockey players on the endangered species list.
Meanwhile, the bears refused to give in to the
embarrassing poll which showed them trailing the postal union in popularity. Engaging
in a frenzy of promise-making they attempted to sway favor. However, since their most
rational promise was to ban the letter 'Q,'
this rash attempt failed dismally.
It soon became evident that the rhinoceriii
were the only viable alternative to the other
parties and that the red snappers should be
completely ignored. The rhinoceriiii promised a solid year of October (Xmas would thus
be on Oct. 359th) with an extra day — to be
known as Saint Elmo's fire drill day — added every four years. Brainwaves, a popular
pastime, would be made illegal, and all left-
handed people with an 'x' in their first name
followed by a '7' would be executed. Their
popularity growing, they sounded the death
knell for the ferret leader's comeback. The
rhinoceriiiii were swept into power with an
overwhelming majority, and made good all
their promises.

Old alternatives
not the answer
By SCOTT GRIFFIN
and MARK CRAWFORD
You are no doubt as tired of elections as we are. However, our
weariness does not pervade our
souls so deeply as to stop us thinking — we owe our country and our
consciences that at least. We write
the following not for partisan
reasons but to hopefully add a calm
and moderate voice to the vacuous
din which the Tory and Liberal
followers have so thoughtfully
created.
Unassuming fellows that we are,
we are not about to tell you how to
vote. But as we see another old-line
government slouching towards Ottawa to be born we feel it is
necessary to voice our support for
the new option in Canada: the New
Democratic party. The old alternatives are utterly unacceptable.
The Conservative government
was enjoyable in one superficial
way: the presence of new names and
faces. But this freshness did not
translate into new or acceptable
policies. The fact that the Tories
gained power on one platform and
tried to govern according to a totally different one lead to their defeat.
They promised to lower interest
rates in the May campaign; once in
office they shrugged as they let rates
rise. In May, they vowed to cut
taxes by $2 billion to stimulate the
economy; once in office they
budgeted for a S3 billion tax boost
— one that would have had a severe
dampening effect on the economy.
The fact that the economic conditions did not change at all from the
time when they made their promises
to the time when they broke them
meant that either the Tories
deliberately mislead the public in
May or they simply "changed"
their minds afterwards. Both explanations are unacceptable within
the context of our free political
system.
Tory energy policy is dangerously
short-sighted. On something as central to the security of our nation as
energy, their private profit-
maximizing dogma must be rejected. The petroleum sector must
be accountable to legitimate
authority and work in the interests
of Canada. A foreign-controlled oil
industry is as threatening to Canada
as "privatized" armed forces.
PetroCanada must be number one.
The Conservatives approved the
sale of almost four trillion cubic
feet of natural gas last spring —
enough to heat one million Canadian homes for 20 years. Once that
finite resource is sold, it is gone
forever. The Tories chose to mortgage our energy future for short-
term bucks.
Rivalling this energy foolishness
is the moral bankruptcy of the mortgage interest plan. Besides the
economic inefficiency of the plan,
the idea of giving mostly-rich
homeowners money at the expense
of deepening the deficit while paring costs of socially-beneficial programs is a shocking example of
Tory priorities.
Rumblings of the reinstatement
of barbaric capital punishment and
an apparent intolerant attitude
towards possible draft resisters further demonstrates why the Conservative party is not an option.
But wait — the Liberal party is
worse. The Liberal party is a tired
party with no new ideas; it is unencumbered with integrity. Its policy
platform is all but non-existent —
most suitable for a party of the
radical wishy-washy.
Leading this party of power is a
tired and bored man who chooses to .
shun the voters. Four months ago,
this man, as leader of the opposition, was mumbling incoherent
nothings in the House. Out of
power and out of roses, Trudeau
was an empty shell. Two months
ago, he was resigning as his party's
leader, claiming that he was not the
man to lead the party.
But he is back. And he is right —
he is not leading. Running and
hiding, Trudeau scurries from the
telling light of his record. For what
if the voters ever juxtapose
Trudeau's past with his present?
What if they compared his
statements that the Tory budget
hurt ordinary Canadians and his so
recent "Canadians are living
beyond their means" arrogance; his
sudden concern for prairie farmers
and his still-echoing "why should I
sell your wheat" and "farmers are
grumblers" comments; his hurt and
shock at the Tories not fulfilling
their promises and his ultimate zap
of the public with his flip-flop on
wage and price controls; or his present constitutional threats toward
Alberta and his previous action of
sending the tanks into Quebec?
The name Trudeau is a virtual
synonym for arrogance, cynicism
and hypocrisy.
It is laughable that the Liberals
call themselves the "party of the
centre" and imply that they
somehow provide the most
desirable "middle of the road" approach to problems. Does that
mean that a token FIRA is better
than a FIRA with teeth? Does that
mean that a Liberal PetroCan is
better that a Canadian owned and
controlled oil industry?
The NDP is the most
misunderstood of the major parties.
Frequently dismissed as "socialist"
by those who vote on the basis of
their parents' views, stereotypes or
ignorance, the NDP has a firm
philosophical grounding: social
justice within the context of responsible economic management. The
NDP believes in government with a
human face.
Whether it is medicare which
means one standard of health care
for all Canadians or a land reserve
which means food security before
blacktop, NDP governments take
creative steps to make Canada
civilized and secure.
While it is not only New
Democrats who are upholders of
civil liberties, the NDP is the only
party to have the political guts to
consistently and unequivocally
maintain and manifest support for
the oppressed in our society.
Whether defending Japanese-
Canadians, pacifists, the
unemployed, the poor, women, or
gays — the toughest groups to stand
up for — the NDP has been there
protecting the individual when the
times got tough. Where were the
other parties?
The NDP policies of a stronger
PetroCan, a comprehensive industrial strategy leading to a
stronger manufacturing sector, decent pensions for our elder citizens
and a renewed medicare system are
good for Canada.
The Conservative Party's promises have little value this time. The
ones it would keep — on energy and
mortgage interest — are dangerous
and unjust. The Liberal Party lost
all credibility in government and
has regained none of it with its
lacklustre display in Opposition.
Another win by default would be
disastrous for Canada.
We've lost faith in the old Tories
and the old Liberals. We see hope in
the New Democrats.
A change for the better.

Liberals lash out with K0 blow
of Quebec Socreds and Tories
TRUDEAU ... a Quebec Lazarus
By RICK BOYCHUK
of the McGill Daily
MONTREAL — If it weren't for
the occasional comic relief provided by the Rhinoceros party, this
winter's federal election in Quebec
would be duller than frozen
dishwater.
Election enthusiasm is building
now but voter interest and the party
campaigns never really got off the
ground until the third week of
January.
Intrusions upon the well-laid
plans of local politicians were the
big news stories: the hostage drama
in Iran, the Russian invasion of
Afghanistan, the call for an Olympic boycott and, on a more immediate level, Quebec's referendum
campaign. International news has
squeezed election news off the front
pages and the referendum battle
has occupied the energies of many
organizers who would otherwise be
Atlantic Canada looks to its
favorite sons for local favors
By MATT ADAMSON
Atlantic Fieldworker
for Canadian University Press
HALIFAX — Knowing they are
outnumbered, and constantly
-reminded by numerous polls that
fickle south-western Ontario will
decide the outcome of the federal
election, Atlantic Canadians look
for candidates that can deliver.
In a region where federal transfer
payments are a major force in the
economy, MPs with the tenacity to
wade through Upper Canadian red
CROSBIE . . .
Maritime Rockefeller
tape and maintain a high profile in
national issues are regularly returned to the Hill. The issues in Atlantic
Canada boil down to energy,
leadership and how best to ensure
economic development.
In Newfoundland and Labrador
the only issue is who controls the
rate of development of off-shore oil
drilling. Backed by a provincial majority vote, Tory premier Brian
Peckford says the deal he has with
Joe Clark allqws the provinces to
decide on the rate of development
and who will reap the benefits.
Liberal leader Pierre Trudeau
told 2,000 university students in St.
John's in January that under a
Liberal government Newfoundland
will control the off-shore until it
becomes a "have" province, contributing to the equalization formula like Ontario, Alberta and
B.C.
When it moves into "have"
status the province will have to
share with the rest of Canada. He
said no political deal will give the
provinces ownership of the offshore oil, only a favorable interpretation   of   the   British   North
America Act by the Supreme Court
could do that. Peckford maintains
the Liberal revenue sharing plan
will give Newfoundlanders only a
pittance of what has been forecast,
as one of the biggest oil finds in the'
history of North America.
In St. John's the "fish and
chips" ministers, fisheries' Paul
McGrath and finance's bombastic
John Crosbie are in firm control of
Newfoundland's most densely
populated area. They are also the
only two Tory seats in the province.
Over 20 years of Liberalism by
Canada's only living father of confederation, Joey Smallwood, has
taken root in the outlying areas.
The Liberal seat which could be
upset is Trinity-Conception where
Dave Rooney is under investigation
for an alleged kickback scheme involving his wife and office on
Capitol Hill.
Fonse Faour should be able to
use the union/community/religious
connection he has in Cornerbrook
to secure re-election of his west
coast seat for the NDP. Although
the New Democrats came close in
Labrador the head of steam was
lost during last summer's provincial
election and may not be regained.
All four seats in Prince Edward
Island went Conservative last May.
The largely rural electorate votes
along traditional religious and family ties. Buoyed by the transfer of
the department of veteran affairs to
Charlottetown, the accompanying
200 jobs and the popular secretary
of state David MacDonald, the
Island Tory sweep is sure to be
repeated.
Nova Scotia Liberals are harping
that with eight Tory MPs the province has only one in Joe Clark's
cabinet — DREE minister Elmer
MacKay. Mike Forrestall, one of
the senior PC members in the house
was overlooked by Clark for a
cabinet post and the Liberal Ray
Austin should take a healthy slice
out of his majority in Dartmouth,
even while Austin defends his actions during his transfer from Canadian Housing and Mortgage Corporation to private real estate
business.
South West Nova Scotia will
witness the re-match of Conservative incumbent Charles Haliber-
ton, winner by 100 votes, and
former date and Liberal challenger
Coline Campbell. Romeo LeBlanc,
former   Liberal   fisheries   minister
and popular figure in coastal fishing
villages, has been stumping hard for
Campbell and the race will be close
again.
The real toss-ups are in Halifax
and Cape Breton-Sydney's.
Former Liberal provincial
premier Gerry Regan is running in
Halifax against PC incumbent
George Cooper and NDPer Alex
McDonough. Regan, premier for
eight years until 1978, draws well in
the low-income north end and
among the riding's numerous civil
servants. He knows the area well
and has been promised a high level
cabinet post if elected. Normally
vigorous campaigner Regan has
been somewhat lacklustre this time
around but a poll by the Dalhousie
Gazette student newspaper and the
King's College journalism society
show himwell ahead.
Cooper was booed down by
Dalhousie law school students when
he claimed the Tories had not
changed their position on
PetroCan. Nicknamed "landslide"
by the party because of his 15 vote
victory last year Cooper says a
Liberal campaign of not saying
anything substantial will erode
some Grit support. Last May he
needed all of the riding's large
military support to put him over the
top. This time it might not be
enough.
The Michelin bill has become the
issue in heavily unionized industrial
Cape Breton. Both the incumbent
Liberal and the NDP say they are
making gains from the Tories in
Cape Breton—The Sydney's. Last
time only 900 votes separated the
Liberals' Russell MacLellan and the
runner-up Tory. The NDP was
2,000 votes behind.
The Liberals boast of winning
eight out of the 13 seats in Nova
Scotia. They presently have two and
a gain of four may be more realistic.
Father Andy Hogan will keep a
firm hand on his New Democrat
seat in Cape Breton.
In New Brunswick the traditional
voting pattern of the French-
speaking populace in the north
voting Liberal and the English-
speaking south going Conservative
will continue. The NDP is said to be
making gains among the paper
workers in the north. Candidates
from the current six Liberal seats
are considered firm and the four
favorite Conservative candidates
are considered safe.
working for federal candidates.
In fact, the federal election seems
almost peripheral to the question of
whether Quebecers will vote "oui"
or "non" in the approaching
referendum.
While there may be fewer
backroom workers, the same cannot be said for the number of candidates. By registration deadline
518 candidates had declared
themselves in the province's 75
ridings, an average of almost seven
per constituency.
In the riding that encircles
McGill University, ten hopefuls
have stepped forward including
candidates from the Marxist-
Leninist party of Canada, the pro-
separatist Union Populaire, the
Rhinoceros party, the Communist
Party of Canada, the Libertarian
Party, two independents and the
three major parties.
Despite the crowd of candidates
there are no indications that
Quebec voters will change their party affiliation this election. Pierre
Trudeau is still the favorite son, a
fact the PCs have built into their
advertising campaigns. Taking
cheap shots at Trudeau is not the
way to win an election here, they
have learned.
The Liberals, who hope to take
at least 70 Quebec seats this time
around, could very well improve
upon last May's 67 seat sweep at
the expense of the Tories and the
Socreds. Of the 75 candidates the
Liberals fielded last election, 66 are
on the ballots again.
A source of some embarrassment
for the Grits is the fact that they
have held no more than two or
three nominating conventions.
Most of the candidates were
selected by the party hierarchy after
LASALLE . . . lonely Tory
"consulting the local
associations," says Liberal youth
co-ordinator Steve Pinkus.
"The way the election was
precipitated didn't allow us the
time to hold nominating conventions," he said without a trace of
irony.
The PC campaign in Quebec
began strongly on the assumption
that voters would be angry with the
Liberals for having forced an election. But the initial sense of
euphoria didn't last long. Local
politicians interested in jumping on
a Tory bandwagon soon saw which
way the wind was blowing and the
party has had a difficult time finding candidates in all ridings.
The ones they have found,
however, are seeking the security of
the group. The 22 Montreal Island
candidates have formed a caucus to
hammer out promises of interest to
all Montreal patriots. The promises
include the construction of a convention centre, upgrading of the
port,  rapid transit improvements
ROY
uses last life
and making Montreal an international film making centre.
Despite their enthusiasm even the
most optimistic forecasts concede
the Tories only five seats. A more
realistic guess is that they will take
three seats, the same three they held
at dissolution: Roch LaSalle's
Joliette, Heward Graffety's Missis-
quoi and Socred defector Richard
Janelle's Lotbiniere.
The Social Credit party under
leader Fabien Roy has managed to
attract candidates in only 56
ridings, one of whom has since
withdrawn. Observers believe the
Socreds will take perhaps four
seats, down two from May. The
Socreds are once again fighting for
their very existence.
The NDP has managed to put 74
candidates in the field although
many of them are waging only
token campaigns. Quebec has never
figured largely in national NDP
strategy, for reasons the party has
yet to comprehend. Party leader Ed
Broadbent has made but one appearance in the province so far and
organizers say they are "unsure"
whether he will come again before
Feb. 18. The party is not likely to
make gains in any ridings.
Rapidly becoming a big name
Quebec NDP candidate is McGill
student David Winch. For the second time Winch is contesting the
Montreal riding of Mount Royal.
The incumbent is Pierre Trudeau.
The most unpredictable campaign is that being waged in 67
Quebec ridings by the Rhinoceros
candidates. In late January they
declared war on Belgium and had
to be pacified by the Belgian ambassador with a case of beer and
some mussels. They are a volatile
lot.
National campaign director and
janitor Charles McKenzie offers
Rhino policy prescriptions for a
number of student issues.
"Student unemployment is a
perpetual problem," said McKenzie, "and as such we suggest
students pray to our Lady of
Perpetual Help care of the Vatican
until the Rhinos form a majority
government."
"Nuclear power is also a prime
concern with us because we believe
once you've seen one crisis you've
seen them all. If elected we would
develop alternate sources of energy
— one of which would be the
natural gas deposits in the National
Capital region."
Of the three communist parties
vying for seats in the Commons the
most well organized is the Workers
Communist Party, formerly the
Canadian Communist League.
Maoist in orientation, this is the
first election in which it has entered
candidates. The party has 30 candidates, ten of whom are women.
