Third Term In Alberta

IF YOU had told a Calgary businessman two years ago that he would support Social Credit in the next Alberta election he would have laughed in your face.

SIX million words were spoken in the House of Commons during this year's session. They are embalmed in Hansard at a cost of about $160,000 or 2 2/3 c. a word. The House sat 123 days. Talk therefore averaged about 49,000 words a sitting. But, while for 100 days or so the torrents of oratory floodswept matters of relatively minor importance, legislation involving expenditures of billions was rushed through with the speed of a Mosquito.
