Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 26, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 00 - TH� LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Tuesday, January 26, 1971 Benson's tax reform legislation delayed By VICTOR MACKIE Herald's Ottawa Bureau Tax reform legislation which Finance Minister Benson had hoped to introduce into the Commons in March will now not be ready for submission until late in April, it was learned from informed government sources Monday. The finance minister accord- SWEAR IN SILENCE - Deaf persons use sign language to swear In as temporary mail sorters at Vancouver Post Office for Ch ristmas rush period. Lynn Milton, left, of Western Institute of the Deaf interprets oath read by postal official C. G. Hawkes, right. Post office hired about 30 deaf persons in Vancouver this year Moscow refrains comment on Canada, Peking relations MOSCOW (Reuter) - The establishment of diplomatic relations with Peking by Canada and Italy forms part of Western efforts to prevent China collaborating with other Communist countries, a commentary published here says. China's growing international activity, viewed on its own, is a favorable development, but "given the known views of dogmatists in the Chinese leadership it is scarcely likely to develop smoothly," it says. The commentary, originally published by the Bulgarian government newspaper Otechestven Crash helmets advocated for vehicle operators OTTAWA (CP) - If motorists had any sense at all, they would put on crash helmets every time they get in a car. That's the advice of one of Canada's foremost traffic accident researchers, Dr. W. R. Ghent, Queen's University professor of surgery. But he acknowledges that he does not follow that himself, even though he risks having his brains scrambled since 70 per cent of all traffic deaths are from head injuries. Dr. Ghent was chairman of a symposium on prevention of motor vehicle accidents at the annual meeting here of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons. PREVENTION THE CURE He maintains that the only hope of improving the epidemic of death and injury on the highways lies in prevention. Some of his recipes for prevention: -Make everyone, before licensing, take "panic situation" training in handling a car in skids, blowouts and the like. Now if anyone tries to practise coping with a deliberate skid on the road, he is breaking the law. -Run highway crash films on television "in living color" to show what can happen, until the public is sick. -Greater research to learn about the deceleration forces that literally tear apart the heart, lungs and other organs of the body in many crashes. -Encourage coroners to be much more suspicious of the circumstances surrounding accidents so they will insist on a good deal more information, not just about the drivers, but the state of the vehicles, road design and other environmental factors. -Use at least the three-point lap and shoulder belts always. Sterling Moss, former British racing driver and one of the symposium participants, suggested a driver grading system on a 10-point scale to give incentive to drivers to improve. Mr. Moss also proposed periodic examination for licence renewals, more driver education, better car and road engineering and enforcement laws which would include compulsory re-education for drivers involved in accidents. Snowmobile use by two hunters results in fine STEINBACH, Man. (CP) -Two St. Pierre, Man., men have been fined $200 and costs each, had their hunting privileges suspended for one year and their snowmobiles and rifles confiscated for using snowmobiles for hunting. George Choquette, 20, and his brother Victor Choquette, 19, were found guilty in Steinbach Magistrate's Court of using the machines to run down foxes and rabbits. Charges were laid under the Wildlife Act. Front, was reprinted by the Soviet weekly Literaturnaya Gzeta. Though Moscow itself has refrained from detailed comment on China's opening of diplomatic relations with Western countries, there is no doubt among observers that the anxieties expressed by the Bulgarian daily reflect those of the Krem lin, too. The commentary says it is not hard to see that the initiative for Canadian and Italian recog nition of Peking came from the United States, "although, taking account of their military and other interests in the Far East, they keep to the sidelines, and sometimes even 'display opposition.' " "Their aim is to ensure by any means' that the re-establishment and expansion of the international activity of the Chinese People's Republic should preserve and strengthen its foreign policy course directed against co-operation within the framework of the socialist commonwealth," the commentary declares. It asks rhetorically whether Peking's latest moves displayed a new tendency, "the rejection of extremism and a return to a consistent and realistic assess ment of reality." There are not sufficient grounds for giving an affirma tive answer to these questions Otechestven Front adds. Canada's and Italy's decision to open diplomatic relations with Peking was dictated not only by material interests, for trade could be developed with out diplomatic ties. "But imperialism needs specifically political links, more in the future than at present," the commentary says. ingly has set late April as the deadline for Ins next budget, making for a long hot summer. Aim of the minister is to have the new law passed by. Parliament and ready to go into operation by January, 1972. He will push ahead with the tax bill that will affect all Canadians. The complex job of drafting the new tax legislation is under war in the finance department. [ When the federal - provincial finance ministers' meeting is held in February there will be considerable discussion on proposed tax changes, The conference will be an important one for Ottawa because it is recognized here that implementation of new tax measures is of maior consequence to the provincial governments. Tax sharing and tax reform are closely bound together. The provincial administrations will press home their final points at the February meetings realizing that with the new tax reform measure in the process of being drafted they have little time left to make their points. Mr. Benson said recently new proposals are not being drafted. "What is being drafted is a bill to be introduced through a budget in the Commons. Not only will the people of Canada again have an opportunity to discuss it but, more importantly, the bill must be discussed clause by clause in the Commons." COSTS EXAMINED CALGARY (CP) - Projected educational demands and costs for the 1971-81 decade are among subjects to be examined by a committee sponsored by the Council of Ministers of Education headed by Dr. Stephen G, Peitchinis, University of Calgary economist. Others on the committee include represent*' tives of Ontario and Maritime universities.
