"We received for the eight months we operated in 1871 and were supposed to re- ceive this year and other next year. Opposition leader Harry Strom, whose government set up .the study group, charged that this move and others this week indicate "clearly that the Conservative government doesn't want any organization or task force that could pos- sibly be critical of the govern- ment." "They are obviously afraid of criticism from any semi-auto- nomous group." Albertans won't get tax hike EDMONTON (CP) Provin- cial Treasurer Gordon Miniely said today there will be no In- crease in Alberta provincial in- come tax despite implementa- tion of the new federal income tax reform bill. Mr. Miniely said that under the federal government's tax reform legislation it is neces- sary to change the rate be- cause under tax reform the pro- vincial income tax now Is cal- culated as a percentage of the federal tax. Previously provin- cial tax was calculated as a percentage of the aggregate federal provincial tax. Legislation will be introduced at the upcoming session of the legislature to amend the AKer- ta Income Tax Act to permit accommodation of changes con- tained in the new federal tax act. Under the current rates on a per cent of basic tax Alberta pays 33 per cent. Equivalent rates under the proposed sys- tem based on a conversion fac- tor of 30.5 per cent, Alberta will pay 36 per cent Professor appeals sentence EDMONTON (CP) King- ston law professor Keith Algte Latta, 43, today filed an ap- peal against his conviction of DOD capital murder in the deatti of Edmonton travel agint Bob Neville.

Phone i [cily _Prm_ What new farm marketing bill means OTTAWA (CP) Federal nurtetjng legMatton be- came law Wedowdiy, eueo- Uaify unchanged despite i sometimes-fierce parliamentary figfct over 22 norths. It permits natjonally-co-ordi- uted marketing agencies to control the production, iMrket- feig, price and promotion of classes of farm commodities where tinners desire such an arrangement. As -amended before receiving the final formality of royal as- sent Wednesday, the legislation now covers farmers previously unaffected by collective market- ing policies. A majority of farmers produc- ing a specific commodity or class of commodities must ap- prove ihe agency by vote before the federal cabinet is empow- ered to establish it. Egg, chicken and turkey pro- ducers have been the only class to voice any Interest in lucb controls and therefore they are the only farmers specifically mentioned in tte legislation. Grain and dairy farmers are excluded because they now have marketing agencies. The Cana- dian wheat board long has been the marketing agency for West- ern producers of grains includ- ing wheat, oats and barley. Agriculture Minister H. A. Olson says the act Is simply en- abling legislation which farmers can use if they wish. It does lit- tle more than provide co-ordi- nated marketing possibilities for the bulk of Canadian farmers, says Ms deputy, Syd Williams. ALLOWS QUOTAS It permits marketing agen- cies, working with provincial authorities, ID license farmers, set quotes and invoke other marketing restrictions felt nec- essary to co-ordinate the mar- keting of a particular commod- ity. armers refusing to conform to such rules could have their licences revoked, be fined or sent to prison. Opponents criticize the act's failure to restrict imports of a commodity controlled domesti- cally by a marketing agency. They say similar products im- ported at a cheaper price can undermine sales of the domesti- cally-controlled commodity. Critics also say the proposed agencies would fragment Cana- dian farm trade. Agencies hi different park of the country would work at croga purposes wilh each other. These differences have been the crux of battles fought In for- ums ranging from the Supreme Court of Canada and Parlia- ment to the community level. Since the bHI was introduced March It hag weathered two parliamentary sessions, IV days of Commons debate, two all-night sittings-one In the ag- riculture committee, the other in the Commons Itself-a Sti preme Court battle, bitter feder al-provincial negotiations, lengthy committee sessions cross-country hearings. It was first debated by the Commons 10 days, then referra to the agriculture committee That group first met on the bi In September, 1970, shortly after a federal-provincial conference hi Ottawa agreed tbe legislation could solve a marketing war in the cMcken-and-egg Industry. QUEBEC STARTED IT The so-called war began when Quebec, facing a glut of poultry products, set up a markebnf board to control the movemen of eggs, chickens and turkeys from other provinces. Other provinces followed. Since then, the main dispu tarns-Quebec, Ontario and agreed to regu late the supply and price ot poultry products. The market ing bit! simply fits a course of action the provincial poultry producers began working on last year. Before the poultry war was resolved, however, the legality of provincial marketing ageu des was tested in the Supreme Court by Manitoba. The court ruled in June that interprovin cial restrictions on trade are i legal under the British North America Act. Parliamentary opponents fa On marketing bill had hoped the Supreme Court hearin would lead to a ban on me typ of agencies outlined in tbe bill National marketing agencies however, would not necessarily impose interprovincial restric- tions and tbe high court decision Vicqr-general diei ALEXANDRIA, Out.

While the Supreme Court dealt with tbe ctUcken-and-egg war, the agriculture committee and farm groups kept up steady discussions. The committee heard M briefs and more than 230 wit- nesses in Ottawa, heard the views of many more farmers during a two-week tour in Janu- ary, 1971, and held several more slam-bang sessions before the bill was returned to the Com- mons April 27. There it remained with more than 30 amendments, mainly by chief Conservative critic Jack Homer until the Commons finished with the gov- ernment's tax-change bill just before Christmas. WOULDN'T WAIT Then, instead of letting the bill wait as expected to be intro- duced again in the next parlia- mentary session in February, the government decided to apply pressure for passage. Seven hectic days of corridor debate, consultations and com- promises, culminating with an all-night sitting ending at a.m. Dec. 31, finally did tbe trick. There was a concession to Conservative and cattlemen critics who Insisted from the outset that beef not be included in farm goods for potential ta- clusion under a marketing agency. The second concession was granted primarily to provincial agriculture minister) who, dur- ing two days of discussion with Mr. Olson in November, insisted the bill make no reference to supply management. The-Senate balked at passage Dec. 31, the same day the bill was referred to it by the Com- mons. After discussion New Year's Eve, the upper house re- ferred the bill to its banking committee which listened to a rerun of farmland argument! Jan. IS prior to final Senate coo. eitieratioo Tuesday. Senate passage came Tuesday night, after Senator Orville Phil- lips Edward Is- land) cumir.ed up criticism with a statement that the legislation is nothing but political mari- juana.
