Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Cold Turkey Jporkling red Wine Cocktail from JORDAN WINES Friday, February 23, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - \\ Programs unveiled in throne speech Manitoba plans tax cuts, help for elderly WINNIPEG (CP) - Manitoba's senior citizens will be exempt from health-insurance premiums and will get low-cost care in nursing homes and extended treatment facilities under proposals unveiled Thursday in the speech from the throne. The New Democratic Party government also promised a package of programs aimed at reducing property-tax burdens, including a form of revenue-sharing for local governments, increased per-pupil grants to schools and financial assistance for small communities in law enforcement. The throne speech,- read by Lt.-Gov. W. J. McKeage, opened the fifth session of the 29th legislature, which is expected to be the last before Premier Ed Schreyer calls a general provincial election. The speech asked that the legislature give priority to the elderly, low-income groups and school and municipal budgets instead of cuts in personal and corporate income taxes. In the field of housing, the speech sadd the government will increase its programs for low-income residents but will also present a new program of home ownership for families of moderate incomes "who now are prevented from owning their own homes by high costs and o f t e n-prohibitive mortgage rates." CITES RECORD The speech cited "an impressive record of sustained growth in economic activity," which Warehouse and Office Space Required! -Preferably Close to Shopping Area 5000 to 7000 Square Feet Reply to Box 9, Lethbridge Herald has seen the gross provincial product jump 40 per cent since the NDP was elected in 1969, and predicted accelerating growth in output which should approach $5 billion by the end of 1973. Other proposals in the speech included an increase in welfare to offset cost-of-living increases since 1969, day-care centres for working mothers, a study of the province's liquor laws, and greater access to public recreational lands by corridors through privately-owned tracts. Farmers were promised a host of programs, including one to help them acquire land or expand existing farms and measures to bolster the province's livestock industry. The government said it is reviewing its assistance programs to small businesses, with emphasis on the needs of businesses located in rural areas. The exemption of -persons over 65 from premiums for government hospital and medical insurance, a provision to be effective April 1, will save single persons $49.80 a year and married couples $99.60. In addition, the province plans to pay 80 per cent of the cost of prescription drugs in excess of $50 a year for single persons and $100 for families in this age group. While promising extension of insured coverage "to all levels of institutional care" for the elderly, the speech did not say patients will be freed entirely from financial responsibility. "Contributions by individual patients to the cost of nursing-home care will be limited to a minimal standard amount which will not diminish their accumulated savings or other assets as in the past." The health insurance changes involve further study of the posT sibilities of low-cost dental care for school-age children and the long-term costs of drugs for all persons suffering from chronic illnesses. Specific proposals for local tax relief from "onerous and inequitable property tax burdens" included additional funds for the province's school foundation program, particularly in school divisions where local tax sources are limited. re- FERRY TRAVEL UP MONCTON, N.B.
