to have the school tax rebate credited by the municipality at the time the rate payers pay their taxes instead of the present system of rebate di rectly from the provincial gov ernment Speaking to the Barkman said I am happy to present this Re solution to this Assembly for the second 1 hope this Govern ment Is not surprised to see it presented for the second In fact with 18 or so new mem bers in this which adds a lot of new thinking power and a new Minister of Municipal Affairs plus the fact that all of us here today have had an opportunity to rekindle our memories and have found out more so Just what the people of Manitoba really want when we asked them to vote for us it the last if we adopt ed this a lot of our problems would be It cer tainly would be more efficient time cost wise and much better relations would result municipal wise and most Impor tant of the taxpayer wouldnot have to loan Us own money to the Government or such a length of time without And that the ex tra money they pay into the Mun icipality at the time they pay their taxes ooes very otten not come back till months I remember the Minister of Municipal Affairs telling us last year that this would all be speed ed up slightly but its still mighty if I as a taxpayer would be behind that far I would have to pay a But the other point Im trying to make is this Many an old couple on pension or many a widow on widows who are pay ing their taxes by the could first of all have this worry of paying taxes off their minds soon and could possibly have saved the interest they may be paying the Municipality be cause they didnt quite manage to pay their taxes before the 31 Tax Payment This interest could very well be quite a proportion of the school tax re bate they receive some months And believe it or not I am still receiving calls from people tell ing me they have not received their school tax rebates from I realize that the odd per son who phones has never really applied for the but my point is if this had been deducted right at the time he paid his taxes at the municipality there would have been no confu sion at So why does the Government want to use the taxpayers money continued page 5
