LETTERS

My congratulations to Ian Adams for his portrayal of Joey Mallow and for the adroit and succinct manner in which Adams created his quick sketch (The Emperor’s Last Stand: A Portrait Of Joey Smallwood Today). We may say without hesitation, “Yes, that’s him — you’ve caught him!” - D. MILNER, EDMONTON I am sure Joey Smallwood is a difficult man to talk to but Adams did a good job.

Pierre Elliott Trudeau Is The President Of Canada

ANYONE WHO DOUBTS that the man we call Prime Minister Trudeau has come, in the two years since his election victory of June 1968, to exercise what is virtually the power of a president, should consider these six incidents: A senior bureaucrat appears before a committee of the federal cabinet to argue for a policy hammered out by the experts in his department.

The Architect Who Thinks People Matter More Than Buildings

There was Arthur Erickson, architect and tastemaker, an honored guest at the ceremonial opening of Expo 70 in Osaka where his mirror-walled Canadian Pavilion was about to enhance his already substantial reputation — and he couldn’t get his mind off the fact that back home in Vancouver he might even then be losing the battle to save his garden fence.

Pierre Elliott Trudeau Makes A Lot Of People Edgy

This is the first Maclean’s-Goldfarb Report. Using the techniques of the political imagemakers themselves, a top sociologist polls Canadians to find out our deepest feelings about the Prime Minister and his chief opponent. Some of what he found out may confirm what you already assumed. But a lot of it may just surprise you

On hating the American people

I DISTRUST all mass passion, it scares me a bit, and I suppose that’s one reason why my sense of nationalism has never really been worth much. Not at home anyway. I had to be at some peculiarly snotty gathering for academics in Mayfair, or nursing a rum-and-lime at some bar on the pink sands of an Antiguan beach, or standing around at a sweaty costume party in southern California, and some ignorant loose-mouthed foreigner had to give me the last word on exactly what was wrong with poor old Canada . . . and then my voice would shake, the blood would come up behind my eyes somewhere, I’d consider the distance by fist to the loose mouth and then, only then, I’d realize not only that there may be an ugly capacity for violence in the Canadian character after all, but also that I really am a Canadian in the way that the French are French, the Greeks are Greek, and the Danes are Danish.

My first real honest-to-God big-time campus sit-in. We win!

IT IS TWO in the morning. I am eating a peanut-butter-and-jam sandwich at the large felt-covered conference table in the middle of the University of Toronto Senate Chamber and I feel like king of the world. As I type — I have no idea where the typewriter came from — I am facing the large, darkstained, oak doors, left open for the first time ever.

“IN 1967, ONLY $22 million was expended in the private sector of the economy on the production of films. Of this amount, less than $500,000 was spent on the production of feature films. In effect, Canadians spent more than 40 times as much on the production of feature films abroad as they did on films made in Canada.”
