Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 21, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, February 21, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 19 The easy ivay Richard Siddal of Vancouver finds that walking the Park roadway, dog is no trouble at all as he leads Shaun along Stanley______ Concern mounts over Hutterite act Ottawa's spending bill climbs DRUMHELLER (CP) - A notice cf motion was introduced at city council meeting for a bylaw which would prohibit further sale of amy produce by Hutterites in his south - central Alberta city. The motion will be dealt with at the next council meeting in two weeks. It was introduced after aldermen expressed concern that Hutterite land agents are assembling large tracts of land for new colonies. Concern about the Hutterite situation has surfaced in several Alberta communities following the provincial government's announcement that the Communal Properties Act, which restricts land purchases by the religious sect, will be repealed March 1. The act will be replaced by an advisory committee which will be able to "suggest" .that no new colony be situated within 15 males of an existing colony and that colonies generally be restricted to eight sections - 5,120 acres. VULCAN ACTS It's a girl SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) - The wife of actor James Pranciscus gave birth to an eight-pound four-ounce girl here. Kitty Franciscus and newborn Kern were reported doing fine Franciscus and his wife have two other daughters. His most recent television series was Longstreet. Alberta's 7,200 Hutterites now occupy 579,653 acres of farm land in the province or 1.2 per cent cf the total. Most of the colonies are concentrated in the prime farm land of southern Alberta. Council also accepted a request that DrumJheller be represented in a delegation led by the Vulcan Chamber of Commerce which Friday will ask the Alberta government to place an immediate freeze on land sales. Tht Vulcan chamber, in a brief to be submitted to the government, says it is concerned about large corporate farms, and land holdings by Hutterites and large United States and Canadian corporations. DECLARE HOLIDAY The Vulcan county council's school comimittee has au-l thorized closure of its schools Friday to enable district families to be in Edmonton for presentation of the brief. At a meeting last Saturday, Vulcan town council declared Friday a civic holiday in support of the chamber's stand. Aid. Elwin Grobe will represent the City of DrumheUer at the meeting with the government. Opponents of the sect claim the 450-year-old life style of the quiet and humble people will ruin the economies of rural communities. Many colonies market some produce, such as eggs and chickens, door-to-door and often at prices well below the level at which local merchants say they can compete OTTAWA (CP) - The gov-, ernment has forecast 1973-74 spending and lending of about $19.3 billion, up almost $1 billion over the expected final total for the current year and a whopping $3 billion more than it originally estimated for the financial year ending March 31. The picture of government outlays, tabled in the Commons Tuesday by Treasury Board President C. M. Drury, does not reflect any of the measures included in the budget brought down Monday night by Finance Minister John Turner. For example, increases announced by Mr. Turner for the old age pension are expected to add another $400 million in government spending for the fiscal year starting April 1 and increased transfers to provinces another $190 million. As they are, the estimates show higher levels of spending for health care, equalization payments to the provinces, public housing and land assembly programs and defence. Total budgetary spending is set at $18,393,121,765. When loans and advances of $893,394,-000 are added in, the 1973-74 total comes to $19,286,515,765. This compares with an estimated $16,541,091,571 in budgetary spending plus $1,806,779,-000 in loans and advances for an expected final 1972-73 total of $18,347,879,571. FORECAST LESS At the start of the 1972-73 year, the government said it expected to have a spending total of $15,749,301,169 and loans and advances of $789,779,000 for a total payout of $16,539,080,169. The figures still do not represent what could be called In horse race terms the government's "total handle" of funds. It expects to spend out of general revenue close to $3 billion from the old age security fund, the source for old age pension payments. Additional Hundreds of millions will be spent on unemployment insurance benefits and out of the fund that supports the contributory Canada Pension Plan payments. Spending on heath and welfare, which includes unemployment insurance, takes the bg-gest single chunk out of each dollar the government raises through its. taxation programs. The breakdown of how the tax dollar is spent shows health and welfare 28 cents, servicing the public debt 14 cents, economic development 13 cents, defence 12 cents, transfer payments to other government levels eight cents, general government services five cents, government overhead four cents, education assistance and culture and recreation three cents each and foreign afairs two cents. JOBLESS COST IN DOUBT No estimate is given in the forecast for cost to the public treasury of unemployment insurance in 1973-74. The old unemployment insurance fund has been scrapped and the government now makes payments out of general revenues for any amount by which benefits paid out exceed collections from employer and employee contributions. In the last year, with unemployment running between six and seven per cent of the labor force, the amount paid out of general revenues was close to $1 billion. A total of $890 million is included in these estimates to bring the books up to date for 1972-73. In the health care field, the forecast is for medical care payments to the provinces to climb to $712 million in 1973-74 from $631 million in the current year and for hospital care payments to climb to $1,065 million from $345 million. The federal government pays half the cost for provincially-run programs in these areas. Under the Canada Assistance Plan,' financing welfare programs in- the same manner, payments are expected to climb to $574 million from $498 million. Estimates at a glance OTTAWA (CP) - Highlights of the government's main spending estimates for the 1973-74 fiscal year starting April 1, presented to Parliament Tuesday: Gross outlays total $19,286, 515,765, up 5.1 per cent from the $18,347,870,071 estimated now for 1972-73. Original 1972-73 estimates had been $16,539,080-169.
