Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 15, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta ____Wednelday, July 15, 1970 THE UTHBRIDGE HERAID H Tax Reform Legislation Debate Expected To Be Long And Loud By VICTOK MACKIE Herald's Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA One massive bill incorporating the federal gov- ernment's proposals for tax re- form, will be presented to the Commons following the budget to be brought down in April or May next year, it was learned here. lime table for the contro- versial changes in the white paper, if all goes according to the government's present plans, will see the recommendations of the Senate and Commons com- mittee on tax reform before the government this fall. The federal finance depart- ment and cabinet will examine the recommendations. Decisions will be made as to what changes should be made in the white paper's proposals for tax reform. The department officials mil commence work in the huge job of writing the one big bill. The massive piece of legisla- tion will incorporate all the pro- posed reforms the government wants to introduce into the tax system. Prior to the Senate and Com- mons committees making their final recommendations in the fall Finance Minister Benson will appear before the Com- mons committee along with his officials to answer questions in August. He has been invited to appear before the Senate com- mittee in September. Once the big tax bill is sub- mitted to the Commons the plan is to keep it before the House until it is passed. It will be examined in detail, clause by clause, in the committee of the whole. MR. BENSON Will Appear GREAT WEST DOOR SERVICES LTD. 257 12th St. N. Phone 327-1853 Repairs, Service and Installation to all makes of commercial and residential overhead doors. No outside witnesses can be i called into the House. The bill is not referred out of the house to a committee where witnesses can be called unless Parlia- ment decides by a majority vote that it should be sent to such a committee. The Liberal government with its large majority in the Com- mons has no intention of having the bill referred out of the Bullfrogs Court Case Adjourned PERTH, Ont. (CP) Four men charged with taking bull- frogs out of season had the case against them adjourned to July 28 Tuesday after they failed to appear in Lanark County court in this town 50 miles southwest of Ottawa. Counsel for the four men, Louis Hoggarth, Stafford Ja- cobs, Elmer Jacobs and Aldin Neil, requested the adjourn- ment. Lanark and neighboring Leeds counties are the only two in the province which protect their frogs by enforcing a July 1-to-Oct. 15 hunting season. The men took their catch June 15.

It wants lo push ahead with tin; examination of the legislation in the Commons and later the Senate chamber with- out it getting before a standing committee where other wit- nesses might be called and weeks or months pass before it would be reported back to the House. The govern m e n t will be counting on its backbenchers to carry through this schedule. It should be successful unless many of the government's sup- porters break ranks en the votes, which is highly unlikely. There has been very strong opposition within the Liberal caucus in the closed doors meetings, over some of the pro- visions in the white'paper on tax reform. The government hopes to have overcome this op- position before the bill goes be- fore the house. As one Liberal backbencher said recently, "if you think the white paper has encountered opposition in the standing com- mittees you should hear the government's own members in caucus." The Opposition members may want the one big tax bill re- ferred to a committee outside the House so that interested or- ganizations could make repre- sentations on specific sections of the proposed legislation. The government hopes lo keep the bill in the committee of the whole house. Opposition Leader Slant i e 1 d has promised his party will stage a filibuster on the meas- ure if niajor changes are not made along the lines of those recommended by the Opposi- tion, by business and industry. Police May Quit At Thunder Bay THUNDER BAY (CP) Thunder Bay policemen have threatened mass resignations in a dispute with ths civic ad- ministration over what they call "wholesale rank alterna- tions" which will eliminate some 22 non-commissioned of- ficer positions. Wallace V. Dubinsky, solici- tor for the Thunder Bay Police Association said 94.8 per cent of the city's 140 police men have signed resignations. He said the resignations, giving the city two weeks' no- tice, may be submitted next week. It could develop into a very prolonged debate in the House next spring and summer. The tax battle might even extend into the fall of 1971. The government hopes, how- ever, to have the tax bill final- ly -passed and on the statutes by Jan. 1, 1072. This is a year later than the government's or- iginal deadline for getting the measure enacted.
