Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Barrett budget Friday VICTORIA (CP) - British Columbia's New Democratic Party government will unveil its first budget Friday, and Premier Dave Barrett says it will lie a clear - cut blueprint for business and industry. But the premier, who doubles as finance minister, has given little indication of what the contents of the budget will be, other than to say it will deal extensively with unemployment. B.C.'s last budget was brought down Feb. 4, 1572, by former premier W. A. C. Bennett. It was a Social Credit blockbuster with record expsn-ditures of $1.4 billion. Mr. Barrett's budget is expected to exceed Mr. Bennet's last effort in expenditures, but there are no indications of by how much or whether the NDP leader will resort to deficit financing - taboo during the 20 years of Social Credit. The B.C. business community is jumping. Mr. Barrett's first budget, which follows a thin outline of the NDP stance in the throne speech, is expected to set the course for the NDP administration during the rest of its mandate. Since the government cams to power Sept. 15, it has hinted at raising corporation taxes and adding higher royalties in the mining industry but whether these things will be done at this session remains a moot point. There is evidence to support a theory that the new government will be cautious before leaping into any new tax fields or making any drastic moves affecting the economy until it has more information. Thursday. February 8, 1973 - THE LETH8RIDGE HERALD - 27 Decentralization plan hits snag EDMONTON (CP) - The Alberta agriculture department's attempt to decentalize its operation by locating the Agricultural Development Corporation at Camrose is running into opposition, a civil service official said Wednesday. Bill Broad, Alberta Civil Service Association president, said 25 employees of the corporation have registered opposition to the proposed move to the city 40 miles southeast of Edmonton. Mr. Broad said the employ- ees affected were not consulted and some "feel it will mean the end of their career, whether they move or stay." HOLDING GUN The province is "holding a gun over these employees' heads." Mr. Broad said the move, to be completed by Sept. 1, means the corporation's employees will move out of the mainstream of their department, thus reducing advancement opportunities. He said the ones electing to re- main in Edmonton would be found positions in other government departments "but they feel that 'wUl end their career." Agriculture Minister Dr. Hugh Horner "thrust the move on the employees without consulting them," he said. "It is one of his 'pets' to revitalize these smaller centres and while I go along with the idea where it is possible, it should not have been done in this way." Kenneth Taylor, the corporation's general manager, who himself will move to Camrose, said he did not see any major problems "except possibly housing, although I understand that it is not too bad." He agreed the employees were upset but did not know how many would refuse to move The corporation is the credit arm of the department, administered by the family farm division. It was established with a fund of $50 million. Rising above it all Salt Lake City's two manmade landmarks, the Capitol (foreground) and headquarters building for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, rise above thick fog that enulfed the rest of the city and caused the airport to close. ECM ministers agree on N-research project BRUSSELS (Reuten - European Common Market science ministers ended years of wrangling early today be agreeing on a new four-year nuclear POOR JUDY! - The care and treatment of diplomats has become a moior industry in Ottawa. In Weekend Magazine this Saturday, Robert McKeown tells about some of the problems of the protocot staff, like the time Haile Selassie's chihuahua made life difficult for Judy LaMorsh. IN YOUR IETHBRIOGE HERALD WEEKEND MAGAZINE research project for the nine-nation enlarged community. Agreement on the $151-miffion program came at the end of a 14-hour meeting. The four-year formula decided upon was a compromise between proposals put forward by the EEC commission for a five-year program and British, French and Dutch demands for a pruning. The common research program, based on four centres in Italy, West Germany, Holland Belgium, has been bogged down for years. The problem has been reluctance by the markets large countries to put money into community projects at the expense of their national programs. The issue was further complicated by the entry of Britain Jan. 1. Britain has a highly-advanced national nuclear research effort and has consequently been less than enthusiastic about joint programs. The three-part package includes a string of advanced technology projects during the next four years, ranging from the environment to applied data processing. The total cost of this-the main part of the package-is about $133 million. The second part of the package is a series of optional projects which ministers will have to decide upon by the end of April. This will cost $18 million.
