As the political management of a faltering economy tests the federal government’s resolve and ingenuity, Pierre Elliott Trudeau finds himself once again at the centre of Canadians’ hopes and concerns. No longer the carefree swinger, not yet the compleat technocrat, but a kind of Buddhist monk in mufti, he faces the current emergency (including resignation of his finance minister) with a curious sense of inner repose.

Canadian heavyweight champion (if he is still champion — there’s some argument about that) George Chuvalo is planning a comeback at the end of October. He hasn’t fought in 18 months, and his weight is up around 260, and he’s 38 years old, but he insists he can get down to 215 or 220 by October 30, and be on the card at Maple Leaf Gardens.

With Lougheed out, there isn’t a Tory who can win, place or show

Peter Lougheed’s face seems puffy and soft. The hair has turned grey seemingly overnight. That fine athletic jawline is losing its tensile strength. There seems little physical bounce in the man who just such a short time ago embodied in his stride and stance the tough little defensive halfback he once was for the Edmonton Eskimos.

In the Ottawa of Silent Pierre, the rumor mills work overtime

When Lester Pearson was prime minister in the 1960s he once became so incensed at the way cabinet secrets were being leaked to the press that he delivered a stern lecture to his colleagues on the need for confidentiality.
