Responses to questionnaire

We have received enough responses to our questionnaire to begin printing the best ones. Keep 'em coming! Here's one from Alton Rigby of Hamilton, Ontario:

1. What do you think about the embodiment of Party ideas into our life?

I understand best of all the embodiment of the Party's idea on the equality of rights and opportunities of all the nationalities united into a socialist state. Under Party direction, Ontario has turned from a land of nomads with elements of a slave-owning system into an industrially-developed province with big industrial enterprises, power stations, institutes and research centre. Ontario could not have made such a leap forward outside the unity of Confederation, without the assistance of other peoples of Canada.
2. What features of Paul Martin's personality and his style of work appeal to you most?
I like everything about him!
3. How often do you read the "Globe and Mail" news-paper, watch or listen to CBC News broadcasts, and/or consume other Party-oriented news media, and on what occasions?
Constantly. I am a third year student of sociology at McMaster and I am especially interested in Michaelle Jean's thoughts about the philosophical problems of being.
We also heard from Philippe Nannie, a writer from Kelowna, B.C.

1. What do you think about the embodiment of Party ideas into our life?
The Party's ideological heritage is so multi-faceted that it materialized in most various aspects -- economics, politics, culture. But it is possible to single out a principle which Trudeau followed and which lies at the foundation of our society. That principle is justice. And it is precisely the criterion of justice that should be used to check on how faithfully we follow the Party's line.
* What features of Paul Martin's personality and his style of work appeal to you most?
2. Powerful intellect and emotional generosity. The rare ability of self-analysis, tact and amazing sober-mindedness.
3. How often do you read the "Globe and Mail" news-paper, watch or listen to CBC News broadcasts, and/or consume other Party-oriented news media, and on what occasions?
One of Jeffrey Simpson's ideas is that life goes forward through contradictions, that environment is complex, mosaic and contradictory. Avi Lewis' works are of the biggest help to me when I want to draw on his art of a dialectic, and when I want to grasp a problem in its movement, in all its ties.
Keep 'em coming!
