Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Tory party policy Minimum income OTTAWA (UP) Tlie Pro- gressive Conservative party's members have made an ambig- uous commitment to the idea of a minimum income for all Ca- nadians. In results of a policy ballot released this week, 63 per cent of the delegates voting at the party's national policy conven- tion last December supported a resolution thai "an assured na- tional income floor should be es- tablished for all Canadians who have no earned income because of physical disability or for other valid reasons." But 53 per cent voted that principle of a guaranteed annual income should not be ac- cepted. Rather, an incentive so-cenl were undecided and 1C po- ckety should be emphasized and' employment opportunities in- creased." The resolutions were among 370 voted on by the delegates. The results are not binding on Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield, who is to form his own policies to take into a fed- eral election campaign. On the resolution for an "as- sured national income 10 per cent disagreed, four per cent were undecided and 23 per cent gave no response. On the resolution to reject a guaranteed annual income, 21 per cent disagreed, nine per Closure of darn problem won EDMONTON (CP) An 80- day closure of the Bighorn Dam in west-central Alber- ta would reduce the flow of the North Saskatchewan River to about winter levels, the head of the provincial water pollu- tion control division said here. Akio Masuda told a public hearing the flow expected at Edmonton, 210 miles down- stream from the dam, would be about cubic feet a sec- ond. "This is about the same low flow as is normal during win- ter at which lime there is an extenuation of pollution be- cause of this ice cover. "But we should have nn prob- lems 35 far m dissolved oxygen is concerned.'' The dam is lo lie clewed Aug. 1 so the intake lo a diversion tunnel can be permanently closed and the reservoir filled The runnel then wilt be re- leased to the river from the reservoir through two Calgary Power turbines. Mr. Masuda said there could "be some difficulties" if the flwv dropped to less than cubic feet a second. But he said the department would be ask- ing municipalities and indus- tries along the river to effect winter pollution control meth- ods while the dam was shut if the river did drop below required levels, water from the Brazeau reservoir used lo augument said Tom Stanley, could 1-e the flow, production manager for Calgary Power. Martin Paetz, chief fisheries biologist with the lands and forests department, said the ef- fect on fish could be severe from the immediate range of the dam to the junction of the Ram River. However, he said, few studies have been made of fisheries in the North Saskatchewan River and it is impossible to know Ihe full effects. "I suspect the fish population is fairly diverse, but I don't think there are any large pop- ulations of any ol the species.'1 However, the 20-mile lake created by the reservoir would, "even under the worst condi- offer more potential for fisheries, he said. A Calgary Power official said no problems were anticipated in Die area of the town of Rocky Mountain House. If any did occur, a channel could be diverted "with t bulldozer with- in a matter of hours." "With the number of rivers and creeks entering Ihe Norlh Saskatchewan before it reach- es Rocky Mountain House, the flow there in the fall of 1972 will be, al the very mini- mum, one-third of the flow which would have occurred if storage were not taking he said. cent gave no response. The issue lias been bitterly disputed within the party for al least three years. A proposal for some form of assured minimum income as a move against poverty, sup- ported by Mr. Stanfield, was re- jected at a Conservative policy conference in 1909. A majority of the delegates, 02 per cent, supported the state- ment that "an individual or family who is capable of earn- ing an income near or below the poverty line should be entitled to a public income supplement." That resolution specified thai recipients would be able to re- tain a fixed amount of their in- come without reduction of the supplement. Bevond that amount, the sup- plement would be reduced on a graduated scale, to encourage recipients "to seek and hold down a part-time or low-paying job or to increase their in- come." The delegates also supported several resolutions stressing need for incentives lo work, and opportunities for the poor to enter the labor force. WELFARE INADEQUATE More than half, 59 per cent said an "income development program" should be adminis- tered "through the tax system in order to establish need more fairly and to do away with the rencor caused Ly the present welfare system." On other issues, the delegates approved resolutions calling for stricter laws to protect consum- ers against unsafe product; and erroneous information held by such data banks as credit bu- A resolution thol. numbers of Parliament he to di- vest themselves of corporate directorships "or similar connections with private inter- ests before appointment to the cabinet" gained support from only 43 per cent of the voters. But another that would re- quire MPs and senators to table their associations with private interests "which might present a conflict with their public duties" won 63-per-cent ap- proval. The Conservatives voted for P strengthened Parliament t o keep check on the government, and supported televising of highlights of parliamentary ac- t i v i t i e s on an experimental basis. A Commons committee has been studying the broadcasling question for two years. A slim majority of 51 per cent approved of tax incentives to individuals and corporations for donalions lo polilical parlies. On labor issues, the delegates supported a statement that "management should be ro- quired to give adequate notice of all forms of industrial' change which is likely to displace a sig- nificant number of workers." strike if threatened by layoffs because of technologica1 change. Nearly three-quarters of the delegates agreed theie is an ur- genl need for a fully-co-ordi- nated attack on pollution involv- ing all Canadians and govern- ment.
