The Happy Hoofers

This was the only night to remember of the entire Ontario election campaign. Something happened. There was pink-cheeked Premier William Davis, 51, looking leaner and fitter than he has in years, puffing on his ever-present prop, a black briar pipe, with wife, Kathleen, hanging on his raincoated arm, arriving at his own nomination anointment in Brampton.

Without Carole Devault, the Keable commission of inquiry concluded last Friday, the Front de Liberation du Québec would have died a natural death after Quebec’s 1970 October Crisis: “Far from causing a decline in the terrorist activities of the group she had infiltrated, the presence of Mme.
