“NDP Premier, David Barrett has called a snap election three years after he led the party to a comfortable victory at his first attempt. The task may be more difficult this time as the opposition are less split three ways; the Social Credit party, refreshed by a new leader, have already persuaded Liberal, NDP and Progressive Conservative MLAs to join their ranks. Bill Bennett, son of WAC Bennett is the new Social Credit Leader. There are new leaders also for the Liberals (Gordon Gibson) and the Progressive Conservatives (George Wallace). To counter Barrett’s openly Socialist  NDP, Bennett had shifted the Social Credit party towards the centre ground.”
