DESTROYING THE MIDDLE CLASS

The view from Roger Gale’s spacious cedar deck in Vancouver’s upscale Kitsilano neighborhood looks like a middle-class dream. The streets are lined with attractive twoand three-storey homes, and thickly forested mountains tower in the distance across English Bay.

A BATTLE JOINED

The soothing atmosphere created by Quebec artist Marc-Aurèle Fortin’s watercolor landscapes in an Old Montreal museum provided an attractive—if unlikely—setting for the launching of a political book. But Pierre Trudeau appeared determined to shatter the serenity.

REGAINING ALTITUDE

Like many Canadian travel agents, Edmonton's Dennis Crawford says that it is becoming increasingly difficult to find airfare bargains for his customers. Crawford, president of Crawford Travel and Accessories Plus Ltd., adds that his company has been hurt by the disappearance of the fierce airline competition that just a year ago led aggressive upstart Wardair Inc. to slash prices as it took on titans Air Canada and Canadian Airlines International Ltd. on Canada's newly deregulated air routes.

LETTERS

In Charles Lynch’s hilarious review of my book, he repeatedly accuses me of pro-Grit bias (“Hostess supreme,” Oct. 30), but try telling that to John Turner. And, as a former colleague at Southam News, Mr. Lynch should remember advising me on my story about Pierre Trudeau’s final patronage fling in June, 1984, a story that helped the Tories win a massive majority in the September election.

Don Cherry’s outrageous credo

Here, in three brisk sentences, is the heartfelt credo of the owner of the most opinionated, refreshing, ungrammatical, entertaining, funny and outrageous voice in the normally bland world of televised sports.
