ASPER Topic: "ConunitmeDt to tax jungle now only a formality' Two events this week though geographically separate! by s e v e r 11 thousand miles serve to bring into sharp focus the issue created by the suc- cession duty system six Cana- dian provinces intend to Intro- duce this year. The first event is purely sym- bolic of the problem. When one of Canada's wealthiest indus- trialists, K. C. Irving, discloses that he has left Canada, IDC that announcement happens to be made from Nassau, thi best- known North American tax ha- ven, it is difficult to escape the conclusion that Mr. Irving's move may have been influenced by the Maritime provinces' de- cision to introduce a provincial death tax. If the fear of death taxes did in fact encourage Mr. Irving's departure, he joins a growing list of distinguished and afflu- ent Canadians who have in re- cent years departed these shores to take up residence in other areas where no death taxes are levied. Jt was to pre- vent a trend toward a mass exodus of capital from Canada that the federal government abolished estate taxes at the same time as it introduced the capita] gains tax. However, six rrovinces, the four Atlantic and he two prairie governments, ive stepped in to fill the va- cuum and the repercussions are yet to be fully appreciated. The other tax event of the week arose in front page stories m Winnipeg newspapers, to the effect, that because of Mani- toba's derision to levy a suc- cession duty tax on the assets of nor residents, at least one rust company was moving those securities it held for non- residents outside of the prov- nce and into a tax-free juris- diction, such as Alberta. Whether or not the trust com- panies admit the transferring of assets, it has in fact already taxied. Both these incidents hould cause the provincial gov- ernments involved in the suc- cession duty debacle to pause and reflect on what they are doing. When any country levies taxes at high rates and be- comes uncompetitive with oth- r jurisdictions, it risks losing Is entrepeneurs to the other area. There's no magic in this, t just happens. The peculiarity of the pro- wsed new succession duty laws hat sparked the Manitoba story, Is the government's state- ment that the tax will be charged "on the value of all property of the deceased at the ate of his death which is situ- ted in the province, whether he deceased died domiciled or resident to or outside the prov- ince and whether his benefici- aries are domiciled or resident in or outside the province." In plain the pro- posed law siyi that if a resi- dent of Detroit owni shares or bonds In a Winnipeg company, dies, and leaves those secur- ities to his son in Loe Angeles, the government of Manitoba would levy a succcadon duty. Now, no one can argue with the government's legal right to tax these assets if it wants to, but Ice wisdom of it is another thing. The resident of Detroit sim- ply responds by selling bis Man- itoba Investments and Investing his capital in a'place which doesn't levy a tax on non-resi- dent investments. There is no shortage sf places where one can put his money to work on that basis. What is of more con- cern is that tie provinces which impose the tax in this way will become quite unattractive placet In which to invest. NO ASSURANCE When atked If he had under- stood the full implication! of the proposed method of taxing DOD resident Investment, Manitoba Finance Minister Saul Cherai- ack implied that the six prov- inces had not considered tins as- pect. But while he promised tc study the question, he would give no assurance that the plan would be changed. Regardless of how politicians deny It, the exodus is now on. It's a verit- able bonanza for Alberta which has stayed aloof from the plan. While the six provinces are reviewing their thinking, they might also reconsider the wis- dom of other aspects of their plan. For example, they pro- pose to tax gifts made from Grain price review WINNIPEG (CP) All com- nudities showed at least mod- est price gains at mid-session on the Winnipeg Grain Ex- change today, with the oilseeds leading the way. Flax continued to show strong gains In exporter buy- ing, going up as much as 3% cents in the deferred futures. Rapeseed posted gains of more than five cents in some fu- tures and rye was up one cent.

This wipes out the 1968 estate and gift tax reform which, In recog- nition of the status of women in marriage, had exempt- ed from tax ail transfers of as- sets between married men and women. .That reform was not Inspired by tax generosity from govern- ment, but, rather, by the recog- nition that the modern mar- riage ts a financial as well as a domestic partnership. DISTURBING SIGNS There are disturbing signs that we are moving Irreversibly toward an Alice in Wonderland tax maze in Canada. While most commentators have warn- ed of this for years, no ene seems to have listened. That being EO, it will become a case of survival of the fittest. Translated freely, that means the province with the most at- tractive tax climate will attract the most entrepreneurial and development capital. At this writing, Alberta, with no gift tax, no death tax, no sales tax and a reasonably low income tax rate, looks like a winner.
