LCTHBRIDGE One of 8 Winners in 4th Courtesy Contest in Southern Alberta and Cranbrook, B.C. We are proud to have Courteous Employees as our Company Representatives Terry will receive a court My award pin and also prize West supports higher pensions Friday, April 27, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGl HERALD 5 OTTAWA (CP) The West joined other regions Thursday in general approval of proposed increases in the Canada Pen- sion Plan agreeing to let a committee of officials work out differences during the spring and summer.____ New Democratic Party wel- fare ministers from Manitoba, Saskatchewan and British Co- lumbia said after a closed morning session with their fed- eral and provincial counterparts that there was nothing to pre- vent federally-suggested modi- fications m the plan from tak- ing place in the near future Norman Levi, British Colum- bia's welfare minister, said there was "real unanimity" to- ward the federal proposals, one of which would remove a two- per-cent escalation limit on CPP benefits and tie future in- creases to the cost of living. As well, al! agreed that the maximum amount of earnings the pension is based rently about a year- should be increased. In a recent federal working paper, Welfare Minister Marc Lalonde sug- gested raising the limit to by 1975. Manitoba Welfare Minister Rene Toupin and Saskatchewan Welfare Minister Alex Taylor said they agreed with this sug- gestion. But Mr. Toupin added that many of the ministers seemed "overly concerned" about the effect the changes would have on private pension plans. MEET NEXT MONTH The working group, made up of deputy ministers from both levels of government, will have to deal with this problem when thev begin their discussions, probably next month, he said. Mr Taylor said he was "quit in agreement" with the federa proposal _ Botli Mr. Toupin and Mr. said there was some discussio: on whether or not to exemp special groups flora the CPP specifically persons adhering t Hutterite and Mennonite reli gious beliefs. Mr Lalonde said he would g ahead with amendments to ex empt these groups from the CPP at a "very early stage, although Mr Toupin said h warned ministers that such a move might set an awkwarc precedent. The Manitoba welfare minis ter said he was not particularlj opposed to the exemption bu said he felt it was necessary t "flash an amber light" on th matter of allowing any grou special status under a universa program. Mr. Levi said the special ex emptai WES a little like a sho out of the blue. The issue ha not been raised in his province but it might have an effect 01 Doukhobors as well. Mr. Levi also said the federa government probably would in troduce legislation modifyin the CPP in the fall. Alberta's Welfare Minister Neil Crawford, has said that hi province also agrees with sug gestions to modify the CPP in order to protect the income o workers. This would help take some o the emphasis off unemploymen insurance, he said in a position paper to the three-day confer ence. The westerners said unem ployment insurance was an other lively topic of debate dur ing the second day of their meeting.
