Oil tax swells Ottawa coffers By NEIL GILBRIDE OTTAWA (CP) Finance Minister John Turner reported Friday a surplus in government financial operations the first nine months of this fiscal year, including 2 million in oil export taxes Mr Turner's report said the first proceeds of the oil tax that went into effect last October were included in federal revenues and not divided with the exporting provinces. "The oil export tax act pro- vides that the minister of fi- nance may pay 50 per cent of the oil export tax to the exporting provinces in which the exported crude was produced, recovered, or he said "No such payments to these provinces were made in December." The million in oil tax money represented collections for the first two months of the tax at its lowest level, 40 cents a barrel in October and November Oil tax collections in December, not yet reported are expected to yield upwards of million because the tax was boosted to a barrel The tax was raised to a France out of Expo 74 SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) France has officially withdrawn from the Expo '74 Environmental World's Fair, Exposition general manager Peter Spurney said Friday. Spurney told a press conference that the European nation, one of 'wo originally accepting invitations to exhibit, had "regrettably declined." barrel in January and is ex- pected to produce some million that month, and this month's 40-a-barrel tax will yield an estimated million in February. A finance department spokesman said none of the later oil tax revenues had been passed on to the provinces either. Federal and provincial offi- cials, following last week's first ministers' conference here, are still debating how the oil export tax revenues should be divided among the various governments, used to promote new oil development, and to subsidize Eastern Canada against higher prices of imported oil All of the oil export tax comes from the United States. Canada s sole customer for crude oil, and Energy Minister Donald Macdonald is receiving expressions of U.S. displeasure over the tax on his current visit to Washington to discuss energy problems.

The Liberal government preaches restraint, but its own "wasteful extravagances continue he told the annual Alberta Progressive Conservative Association meeting "They incite needless divi- sions among Canadians and blame the victims. They talk big and think small they live high and perform low Mr Stanfield, on a four-day visit to Alberta and British Columbia, said that in the 15 months since the'October, 1972, federal election, living costs have risen 10 per cent. Reputable sources were predicting another 10-per-cent increase this year, and if decisive action was not taken, "these sobering predictions will come true." "Their (Liberals) failures in the field of economic fore- casting and policy-making constitute a national sick joke. Their failure to even attempt to deal with the root causes of domestic inflation is a national cop-out" CITES TAXES Mr. Stanfield said the government may feel it is fine to continue the "course of just riding things because it still can produce a full treasury no matter what happens. The federal sales tax on gasoline was a percentage tax which increased with rising prices However, the provincial tax on gasoline was a flat tax not affected by wholesale price. "The federal tax siphon has the same kind of thing going for it in the sales tax on building materials and the same thing going for it in the remaining federal sales taxes on clothing When prices go up, up goes the federal take." Mr Stanfield said his current travels across the country are aimed at seeking broad public support needed "tc force this 'I'm all right Jack' government to take action." He is spending one day in Alberta, where the Conservatives swept all 19 seats in the last federal election. Today, he travels to Vernon, B.C He said statistics show that more than one-half of the cur- rent inflation rate is attribut- able to factors within Canada. It was true that the rest of the world was experiencing in- flationary turmoil, but it was absurd to say that "we can or should do nothing to attack the guts of our own inflation." DROP TAXES "Removal of the 11-per-cent federal sales tax on building materials would take some of the edge off the soaring cost of housing." Removal the fedederal tax on all clothing also would be a positive contribution These two actions would go a long way to cooling inflation psychology, he added Mr. Stanfield also attacked the federal government for its performance at the national energy conference 10 days ago. "It was a source ot amaze- ment to me that the federal participants at the conference pulled a formula out of a hat and requested agreement on it in a day's time I don't know how anyone could defend that approach as even remotely sensible let alone possible "Who would have sprung a last-minute accountant's nightmare on the provinces and expected an answer in 24 hours7 Who would have misplayed Godfather by making an offer that the provinces couldn't Mr Stanfield said that anyone who followed the energy conference must have felt that talk about an improved Trudeau government is only a myth QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Cwtfftod Capitol Furniture Bldg.
