Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 21, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta One 'from Lpl School year modification Ottawa tightens SCreWS proposal brings reaction on charitable groups By I'MIL JACKSON' Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA The federal gov- ernment has started to tighten the screws on the more than organizations register- ed with the national revenue de- partment as legitimate chari- ties. In the past, the taxation de- partment has been quite lax about charitable organizations. A wide variety of organizations could register with the depart- TORTURED BEFORE EXECUTION A Mukli Bahini leader holds cigarette before putting il to Hie face of a young man at a rally in Dacca.

SlppEIiS DRUG MART ment, meaning thai anyone who gave a donation could claim in- come tax relief on it. Many charitable organiza- tions have been lax loo. They have gone year after year with- out giving a good account of how they have been spending their money. But limes have changed. The good old easy- going days have come to an end. The taxation people are get- ting tough. In January, they sent out notices to regis- tered charities warning them to send in up to date accounts of how they have been spending their money. CHOPPED FROM ROLLS About two thirds of them re- sponded rapidly to that warn- ing. But lor the other third has come trouble. In the last few weeks the national revenue de- partment has mailed out about ''revocation'' notices tell- ing them they have been struck off the rolls. On Saturday, the Canada Ga- zette, that government docu- ment that makes everything that appears in it official with sometimes a solemn finality, was a little bulkier than usual. Inside, were 49 pages of close- ly printed names and addresses of once charitable organizations that no longer are. The list is complex and in- volved. And it's only the start. Others will be gazetted in future weeks. But for starters, at least 952 organizations left the rolls on Saturday. In Western Can- ada, about 135 came from Brit- ish Columbia, 45 from Mani- toba, 85 from Alberta, and a horde more from Saskatchew- an. LETIIBRIDGE GROL'I- Some notables in Alberta: S.A.C.

Education Min- ister Lou Hyndman said his department now is gelling reac- tion from home and school asso- ciations and school trustees on the proposal to modify the school year. The province held a major conference on Uie proposal at Red Deer several months ago, he said. Considerably more complex than it appears at first glance, Mr. Hyndman said there is a strong feeling in Alberta that the traditional July-August school break should be retained, an attitude generated by [he province's climate, the educa- tion minister said. II any change is made it would be on a local option basis and, Mr. Hyndman added, the govern.ncnt also is waiting for a report of the Worth commission on education expected in 1972. Mr. Hyndman said the Uni- versity of Alberta has been dis- cussing the Irimcsler system and any alteration in the high .school year would have to lw "dovetailed" with the university year to eliminate gaps in a slit- dent's education. personal tax rale for Manitoba WINNIPEG Finance Minister Saul Cher- niack announced a new per- sonal income tax rate for Manitoba Monday but said that although the percentage was higher the aclual rates paid will remain about the same. The new rate, basically a re- calculation based or. a reduc- tion of the federal tax, will now be 42.5 per cent of the federal tax instead of the 39 per cent it was in 1970-71. The new rate will start Jan 1. Earnings rise across Canada OTTAWA (Cl'i Average weekly earnings ruse lo in September from in August, Statistics Canada re- ported Monday.
