Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 8, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE IITHBRIDGI HERALD July I, 1970 Lethbridge Is Kindest City In Canada By JOHN M1KA Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Lethbridge is the kindest city in Canada. Lethbridge easily takes this honor on the basis of its deducted by taxpayers for charitable donations. On the same ratio, the other cities should have given the fol lowing sums, with the actual do- nations reported in brackets Winnipeg million nul lion) Calgary million Edmonton million Vancouver million and bringing up the rear1, Victoria million British Columbia may not be heading for the poor house ye but it has lost momentum and rank in the Canadian race to affluence while both Manitoba and Alberta have improver, their standings appreciably. These are some of the facts that emerge from the annual Green Book derby results post- ed by the department of reve- nue as a volume entitled Taxa- tion Statistics. The 1970 edition released re- cently, covering the 1968 tax year, shows these changes in comparison with the 1965 tax year: The average income in Brit- ish Columbia reached 18 months ago but it will have to try harder to regain No. 1 spot it held in 1965 with an average of Because Ontario has moved up from second place to take over with a top of aver- age income. However, both provinces still are the only ones higher than the national average at latest count as they were when it was in 1965. Alberta passed Quebec to oc- cupy third rank in this year's report, with an average income of compared with in the Green Book issued three years ago. Manitoba moved up a notch too, slipping past Saskatchewan into fifth spot with an average income of in the latest report and in the com- parison report. All news reports duly noted that pakville led the 100 select- ed cities across Canada this time, with an average incoms of reported to the lax of fice in the 1968 returns. But here's how some of the other cities fared in the west with their 1965 average income comparison in brackets. In British Columbia: Vancouver slipped badly from 10th place to 14th with an av erags income of But Victoria did even worse dropping from 26th to 39th spol With Adding to the h u r t, nearby Nanaimo bucked the B.C. trend and improved its relative posi lion by seven notches to be- come the 13th in national rank with an average income of 247 While mid province Prince George continued its boom to step up from llth to 8th posi New School Deal Urged For Retarded WASHINGTON (AP) Men- tally retarded children should not be segregated in their own schools, but placed in the main- stream of the educational expe- rience, a joint Canadian-United Statse study said today. The report summarizes a joint conference of the Canadi- an-U.S. study group on mental retardation held last year. Special class programs should re-evaluated, especially for the mildly retarded, the report said. To give the child access to the full resources of education. The study called for at least more special education eachers in the two nations, adding the supply of aides is critically short. The report said U.S. institu- ions, in addition, need at least 50 per cent more professionals c meet minimal standards in caring for the retarded. ISSUE MORK PASSPORTS OTTAWA (CP) Despite urmoil in the post office, pass- ports issued during the first lalf of 1970 showed a 12-per- ent increase over the number issued in the same period of 969. tion with as ar other rarity in B.C. In Alberta, there was a grea er mixture of plus and minus Calgary held its own, stayui in 18th spot with an avera] income of But Lethbridge jumped ahea from 59th to 56th in the line-u with And Edmonton did even be ter, moving up from 37th to 31 spot with While Medicine Hat and Rec Deer both lost consider abl ground respectively, fro 65th to 68th position with and from 62nd to 68 with In Manitoba, the sun shor mainly on rural aibas appa ently: Winnipeg slid from 49th ran ing down to 58th Brandon fell back from 70 79th with an Portage La Prairie plunge from 88th to the list's last spc as No. 100 with Dry as dust the thousands figures in the Green Boy ma be but some of them shed in teresting light on the individu quirks that give cities a dis tinctive flavor setting them apart from, one another. Calgary's somewhat raffis air is certainly supported b the tax receipts. Its 1968 taxpayers r ported more million come from alimony cheque and claimed a total of mi lion alimony payments as de- ductions indicating there ar a lot of women elsewhere wh still have a pecuniary interes in the oil capital's buckafoos. (Edmonton, with almost per cent more taxpayers, re- ported alimony income barel over million and alimony de- ductions of million. An Lethbridge, with about one twelfth the number of Calgary' taxpayers, reported just ove in alimony income an only in alimony deduc tions giving it the title fo married bliss. In case you're interested fur ther, Winnipeg's taxpay ers reported a relatively mpc est alimony income fust over million and deduct ed million for alimony pay ments. HOME ABLAZE A fireman douses the smouldering remains of Orthodox Doukho- bor leader John Verigin's home near Grand Forks, B.C. While the house burn- ed six women danced around it nude. Six women, all members of the breakaway Sons of Freedom Doukhobors, were charged with arson when they appeared in court in Grand Forks. V M1R1NIG WORLD OF SHOES CLEARANCE OF ALL Our Complete Stock On 6th Street S, Vancouver was near average loo with its government supporters reporting alimony in- come of about million and deducting million for ali- mony payments. But, dear, dear who'd ever have thought staid old Victoria was a haunt of divorcees as well as pensioners? Yet its taxpayers ad- mitted to receiving a total in- come of from alimony orders proportionately the same rate as high stepping Calgary and claimed no less than in alimony deduc- tions. But when it comes to retire- ment income, there is no con- test. Victorians reported million in private and govern- ment pension receipts compar- ed with Calgary's million. 'For comparison, pension meant million to the econ- omy of Vancouver, ?2.2 million to Lethbridge, million to Edmonton and million to Winnipeg. Other aspects that emerge from the figures: The professions are bigger than businessmen in Edmonton but ths reverse is true in Leth- bridge and Victoria. The profes- sional incomes', with business incomes in brackets, reported by the various cities were: Ed- monton million mil- Vancouver million Calgary mil- lion Winnipeg million each; Victoria million million) and Leth- bridge million But Calgary leads by a coun- try mite in jumping where an- gels fear to tread its deduc- tions for business losses totalled compared with 000 for Edmonton, for Vancouver and for Vic- toria. Lethbridge also has a dispro- portionate share of rash would- be-entrepeneurs, reporting an unhealthy in business losses while Winnipeg's winds must have developed harder- heads over the years because it reported a relatively minor in losses. Vancouvfirites have tie great- est prediliction for playing the market, earning million in stock dividends compared with million derived from bond and bank interest. Calgary, Winnipeg and Vic- toria's investors all showed less favor for risk, by reporting ap- proximately from dividend income for every earned from bond interest. But Edmon- ton and Lethbridge played it safest of all, reporting from shares for about from bonds.
