Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta FINAL EDITION WeatKer WAKM WITH jVOL. 112. LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 14 PAGES WILL PROBE MEAT "BLACK MARKET" Decision On Taxation Is Quite Likely Dominion-Provincial Con- ference Meets Thursday Take Action Calf Quints Make History OTTAWA, April co- ordinating committee of the Do- minion-Provincial Conference re- convenes tomorrow for meetings ex- pected to lead to a revision of financial relations among the gov- ernments. Since the" conference first met in August, 1945. the provincial and federal authorities have been striv- ing to agree on how the taxation fields should be divided. The August meeting was followed by one, in November and another in Febru- ary. However, when the February meetings adjourned, both federal and provincial officials were optim- istic that agreement could be reach- ed following further study and talks. The federal government originally asked the provinces to vacate the .income, corporation and inheritance 'tax fields. In return the Dominion pay the provinces a S12 per capita subsidy based on the 1941 population and the value cf national production. It would also take over the major portion of health insur- ance, old age pension, unemploy- ment and other costs. It contribute to the carrying out of reconversion projects. POSSIBLE BASIS Ac the February meeting, the pro- vinces, particularly Quebec and Ontario, were reported to have balked about relinquishing the in- heritance tax field and to have asked for a higher per capita grant. As a result the Dominion was understood to have offered to boost the per .capita subsidy to and to use tfie 1942 national production figure as the basis for figuring out irreducible minimum _ The the lederal authorities were reported to have agreed to vacate tire in- heritance tax field, but not to have committed themselves on whether they will give up such fields as electricity, telephone, telegraph, gasoline, amusements and others formerly occupied the provinces. Premier John Hart of British Columbia, said that if the provinces decided to move back into the in- come and corporation tax fields, the JDOKiinion had agreed to reduce its levies by 10 per cent so that pro- "Tmcia! taxpayers would not lose anything, MUSI DECIDE NOW Several factors make it almost imperative that agreement or dis- agreement be reached this time by the conference. For one thing Finance Minister Ilslev must fcsow before presenting his budget for the current year just what revenues he can count on. The wartime agreements under the Dominion had exclusive use of the income and corporation tax fields will begin to expire this autumn and unless thev are ex- tended or replaced the" provinces likely will be forced back into those fields to obtain the revenues need. they There is not one bull in the china shop in Fair- bury, Neb., but four of their sister.

The newspaper said the man was believed to be the same as the one who called it yesterday and declared "a. body has been stolen from Mag- giore cemetery in Milan."
