SEPARATISM RIVARD SCAND PENSION PLAN THE FLAG VIETNAM

As THE FIFTH federal election in eight years comes up, the participants are going dutifully if wearily through all the traditional motions. They are expending millions of words and dollars on television, radio and the printed page. There is no escape from their slogans, their propaganda, the phrases that professional speechwritcrs have polished for this costly, noisy, coast-to-coast show.

DEATH OF A GREAT LAKE

IT ALL TOOK PLACE so slowly it's hard now to reconstruct just when and how it happened. But the first sign of trouble to which anyone paid much attention was the disappearance of the mayfly first, and temporarily, in 1953 and then, for good, in 1956.

HIDDEN TREASURES OF A SHY REBEL

IN THE MIDST of Toronto's suburban sprawl, there’s a place where the rows of modern bungalows are broken by woods, fenced by a wire fence with a cattle gate. I went through the gate, early this fall, and up a grassy lane between elms, maples, cedars, apple trees dropping their red fruit, and clumps of lilac bushes.

My home away from jail

JOE BOUCHARD lives on the edge of a well-kept village just a few miles off Highway Two, between Montreal and Quebec City. Joe’s weathered old shack is one of the few buildings in the village that have defied the paint brush. This is fitting, for Joe is unorthodox, too.

THE LAND THAT LIVES ON BORROWED TIME

I HAVE SEEN a lot of airstrips, including some crude and makeshift ones in the Arctic, but for my airfare money Hong Kong's Kai Tak airport is the most intimidating of them all. You come in over the sea. shave the tops of a couple of bald mountains, and then suddenly you are plummeting down hellbent into the swarming junks and ships of Hong Kong harbor.

WHO’LL BE AROUND AFTER THE BATTLE?

ONE LIBERAL CABINET MINISTER summed up his reasons for wanting a 1965 election in a pungent simile: “A government, like a virtuous woman, has got to be able to say no.” Obviously this was not Prime Minister Pearson’s only reason for calling "the election nobody wants,” but it may well have been the strongest one.

THE STORY THAT went the rounds of Montreal’s legal circles early this year really told everybody all they needed to know about what sort of a man they were dealing with in Joseph Napoléon Claude Wagner, then Quebec’s new attorney-general and now the province’s minister of justice.

AN INDIAN’S (ALMOST) SUCCESS STORY

WHEN THE 700 MEMBERS of the Cape Croker band of Ojibways in southern Ontario elected Wilmur Nadjiwan chief, the stocky quiet-spoken Indian promised: “It may be for only two years, but they’ll know I've been chief.” By “they” he meant the bureaucrats of the Indian Affairs Branch.
