What is Canada profited if it saves a fist full of dollars and loses its soul?

There’s an uneasy notion abroad these days that the politicians in Ottawa are spending our tax money like a bunch of drunken sailors. This, of course, is nonsense. Drunken sailors spend their own money. Still, it’s a shame that in their confused efforts to trim swollen expenditures the cost-cutters have taken such large bites out of various cultural budgets.

Ernest Hillen
It isn’t easy to get Robert Cooper, CBC’s ombudsman, to stand still. He’s always on the run. Just on Ombudsman business alone he travels 100,000 miles a year. And now it seems, incredibly, there are two of him running. One is “the weird guy with the squeaky voice,” as he refers to himself, who fights for the little man three Sunday nights a month at 10:30.

Synchronized swimmers have always been regarded as fringe performers—rather like lumberjacks who can spell out their names in fallen trees: the effect is striking, but what a strange thing to do. What newspaper coverage there is of synchronized swimming tends to wind up beside the recipes, not on the sports pages.

Is there a Stephen Juba in Winnipeg’s future? Will the news machine move back into the mayor’s office? For the 21 years he was mayor, until his surprising retirement last fall, the flamboyant Juba toyed with the Winnipeg media like a cunning cat with mild-mannered mice.

Arturo Gonzalez
An obvious non-member may be seen boldly entering the marble halls of the prestigious National Liberal Club on London’s Embankment these days. Tempted as he may be to turn the interloper away, the doorman instead dutifully escorts him to the club’s innermost sanctum where even the club secretary is solicitious to the rank outsider’s needs.

Danny Demers and Fugi Saito, decked out in the top hats and tails of their chimney sweeping trade, were marching through Edmonton in this year’s Klondike Days parade when a toothless old grandmother spotted the pair. “Sonny, you come over here and give me a kiss,” she called to Demers, a blonde, good-looking 18-year-old.

John Keats’s “season of mists and mellow fruitfulness” takes on a psychedelic cast in British Columbia during September and October as the autumn rains and fertile pastures propagate thousands of little mushrooms of the psilocybe species, commonly known as magic mushrooms.

Building castles in the bush

In the midst of dense bush 35 miles from Atikokan in northwestern Ontario, there is a castle—a three-storey log castle with a four-storey tower, built by one lone Scot some 65 years ago. The castle is crumbling, its fabled owner, James “Jimmy Hightop” McQuat (some say he built it for a Glasgow fiancée who never arrived) is buried beside it, and the site, on White Otter Lake, now belongs to the Ontario ministry of natural resources.

Quebec’s declining birth rate not only puts an end to francophone “revenge of the cradle,” it also threatens the survival of hospital maternity wards in the province. In 1975, the government ordered Quebec City’s Christ-Roi Hospital to shut down its 24-bed obstetrics department because the 777 deliveries performed there that year were not enough to justify their expense.

In your article, Giving the People What They Want (Sept. 25), you suggest some Liberal candidates might want to put some distance between themselves and Pierre Trudeau in the October byelections. In support of this, you quote Westmount candidate Don Johnston as saying, “I’ve known Pierre Trudeau for 20 years, but it’s troubling me.

Got a rusty switchblade concealed in your attic? Or, a souvenir Luger stashed under your bed, hidden for fear of prosecution? Well, relax. For the first time in Canadian history, the federal government will declare legal amnesty-on Oct. 25 Solicitor-General Jean-Jacques Blais will announce November Amnesty Month— during which time all prohibited weapons can be turned over to police and restricted weapons surrendered, or their owners registered without penalty.

Out there on the byelection stump, in hotels that make strange bedfellows, rival campaigners are literally falling all over each other. One recent night in the dining room of Corner Brook’s Glynmill Inn, Brian Flemming, advance-manning a trip for Pierre Trudeau, stopped by the table of St. John’s Tory MP Jim McGrath, who was in town with Joe Clark.

As the 63 candidates enter the homestretch for the Oct. 16 By-election Cup, Maclean’s herewith presents a schematic look at the 15 ridings. Not all the horses will go the distance and, with apologies, we’ve left them off our chart. The facts and readings on front-runners are based on reports, filed 10 days before the vote, by six staff writers and four regional correspondents who trailed national leaders and candidates in seven provinces and talked to key party strategists.

It’s a story that even the fertile imagination of the late Ian Fleming might have boggled at inventing—and Scotland Yard could certainly have used the talents of James Bond these last extraordinary weeks. First, a Bulgarian broadcaster, a 49-year-old political exile working for the BBC named Georgi Markov, is assassinated one autumn day as he strolls across London’s Waterloo Bridge—assassinated, moreover, by a tiny poisoned pellet fired from a gun disguised as an umbrella.

So often, golfers and tennis players run after the sun season. That’s seldom a worry in the South. For somewhere, it’s always warm. And those sports are as popular — as available — in the midst of winter as they are in the glare of a summer sun. Resorts, generally, are the best places to venture out onto outstanding championship golf courses, or meet the challenge of tennis head on.

The Acadians fled from the northlands, but leaving was against their will. They had a choice. They could have stayed as they were on that rich Canadian soil. But they were too independent, too stubborn, too loyal to their Catholic faith to ever pledge allegiance to good old King George II and the British Crown.

The land of bluegrass has built white plank fences around its legends. And many of the most noted of these horse farms are still open to the public, with winding driveways that leisurely carry you past millionaires munching on grass. New Orleans, Louisiana, is the god child of France, with graceful iron-lace balconies overlooking the streets of the famed Vieux Carre.

The Atlanta penitentiary is a bad joke that has gone terrifyingly wrong. The humor is all Kafka, bizarre and macabre. And yet there is something Laurel and Hardy about a prison where the warden is afraid to interfere with the drug smugglers in case the prisoners riot.

Canadian C&W songstress Colleen (Sparky) Peterson has shed her blue jeans, made a tablecloth of her red-checkered shirts and is trying to look more like Lauren Hutton than Elly Mae Clampett. All in a good cause. Peterson, who just wound up an American-Canadian tour with friend Gordon Lightfoot, says she’s had it with folk festivals and summer tours in Petawawa and Napanee.

It was a buy-out sure to thrust the Zeller’s chairman toward the top of the newly created second largest retailing empire in Canada,* yet all he really wanted to talk about were lemons.

The same number can be found pushing automobiles, skates, sticks and yogurt.

But Wood had no reason to believe that he would be recognized, even after a year at the centre: hadn’t a security guard already refused to allow him into one of his own rehearsals?

In 1841 a former Baptist missionary named Thomas Cook founded a travel firm devoted to satisfying the Victorian gentleman’s desire to visit faraway places with strange-sounding names. In the process his name became synonymous with the grand tour to exotic lands, whether it be safaris in Africa in search of the source of the Nile, or Sherpa-led treks through the Himalayas.

Last week I talked with a couple who had spent time in Nazi concentration camps, he at Dachau and she at Auschwitz. The one tragedy that remains with them in Canada is the wife’s loss of hearing. The beatings she received caused a degenerative condition and now, despite the best hearing aids and surgery, she is stone deaf.

In 1954 Françoise Sagan,48, published her first novel, Bonjour Tristesse. She hit the best-seller lists and made every 20-year-old unpublished author feel over the hill. Some would-be writers comforted themselves by not reading her, a task made increasingly difficult as Sagan began to turn out novels (A Certain Smile, Aimez-vous Brahms?) with the regularity of a French Joyce Carol Oates.

On June 1, 1977, Heather Menzies, a young Winnipeg-based journalist, packed her car and set off to see Canada. The question she asked was: What is Canada? And to get that answer she played Barry Broadfoot/Studs Terkel, talking to the folks from the Yukon to Newfoundland’s outports. No consensus (no surprise) emerged, but in the asking Menzies has produced a bleak and disturbing portrait of the country in its 111th year of confederation.

DEATH ON THE NILE Directed by John Guillermin

With its Egyptian locations, Nino Rota’s rousing neo-Wagnerian music, a collection of actors who are established scene-stealers, and an Agatha Christie plot, Death on the Nile has a kind of corny, clunky grandeur. The camera technique of the director (John Guillermin, who did the grossly underrated remake of King Kong), is easeful, and it feeds off expanse: the camera is a gliding Cook’s tour of the Nile and Egypt’s ruins.

There was a most peculiar happening on the television screen the other day when the prime minister of the land was being questioned by Peter Desbarats of the Global Network. Desbarats warily and politely nudged up to the legitimate point that is the subject of some speculation in Ottawa with the election now definitely set for the spring: the possibility of a reconciliation with Margaret.
