In a submission to Uie Canada Labor Relations Board, the U.S.-ownccl firm of Miller and Brown, Ltd., argued that the owners-operators are not em- ployees of the company. The firm, which operates in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan, said it has ver- bal arrangements with 37 own- er-operators for their services. A similar view was presented to the board by lawyer Alfred Harris, representing a majority of the owner-operators. Teamster lawyer R. E. Cock- ing, however, maintained that in existing collective agree- ments the company does recog- nize the owner-operators as em- ployees. The hearing, resulting from an application for certification bv the Teamsters, continues.

But if legislation before the Commons is approved, such changes in property ownership will he (axed as capital gains and the provinces will lose their share of the revenue.

Mike Finder, with an e i K h t-pound four-ounce son here. eminent has rebated its share of the estate taxes to eligible estates. Mr. Minicly said earlier this week the provincial govern- ment is opposed to double taxa- tion which would occur if pro- vincial estate taxes were intro- duced on top of the capital- gains levy. The estate rebates have served as an incentive for per- sons with large estates to move to Alberta whore they escaped much of the succession taxa- tion. The current provincial budget has provided million for re- bates, but Mr. Minicly said tha government has not yet de- cided whether some form of in- ducement will be offered under the new lax system.
