In a speech to about 40 nominees and party pillars-they in- cluded son Stephen, Ontario leader, Donald C. MacDonald, national party president, and Clifford Scotton, national .secre- tary and campaign director- Mr. Lewis cited examples ol what he described as (he "cor- porate welfare system." ffo said big business takes an Increasing amount from the public purse through grants while paying a decreasing Quake reported PALMER, Alaska f AP) An observatory here reported a moderate earthquake loday centred 120 miles west-south- west of Ailak, Alaska, with a preliminary magnitute of n.6 on the open-ended Richter scale.

It is an issue ho ami his party Intend lo hammer at until the nest federal election. An aide said later the parly intends lo produce a list of ion companies which have cashed in on what Mr. Lewis called "a new kind of welfare corporations thai siphon hun- dreds of millions of dollars each year from the public trough while Ihey pay a declin- ing share of the income tax needed to government serv- ices." The 6.1-ycar-old socialist leader cited what he said were three examples of this: Shipbuilding Ltd., n subsidiary of Canada Steam- ship Lines, received regional expansion and shipbuilders' grants wortli S27 million be- tween 1966 and 1D7I. During same years the parent figures are not broken down among subsi- diaries-paid 525 million in in- come tax. Mines Ltd., an On- tario uranium-mining company headed by Stephen Roman, Conservative candidate in the Toronto area riding of York North, did not pay any taxes between 1961 and 1970, despite profits of SM.MB.Sflfl bclwcffn 1165 and tflvn "and Lord knows how many millions in fbo [our years before that." Canada, a ptihpidiary of the multi-national oil anil gas company, Shell Inter- national, hnd net earnings of between 1384 arid I'JO'j, said. "Uut rlurinr: that time it paid not single, solitary of incfuvje tax, t'i a vast nelwork of tar concessions, depletion allowances and other dodges." The company did pay mil- lion on net earnings of mil- lion In 1070, a rate, ot 13 per cent. But that rate is "about half tiie rate paid by most people earning no more than or a year." Grants to corporations during tho last four mcnt years bave increased to million a year from million, Mr. Lewis said. At the same time, corporations have been paying a declining ehnro of tax. Twenty years ago, In 1951, In- dividuals paid 20.7 per cent of all direct federal (axes, corpo- rations paid 2S per cent. In Mr. fxjwis said, "individ- uals will pay per cent of all income tax and corporations only 12.2 per cent" The "vasl network of corpo- rate welfare" has the effect of achieving income distribution in the working people lo the corporalions." Mr. Lewis, who represent York South, made his remarks on Ihe firsl of a Ihree-day lour of Canada's corporate heart- land.
