Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, July 15, 1977 THE IETHMIDGE HERALD IS 'We gave him a free ride' Top Tory is Grit target OTTAWA CP) Liberal campaign strategists, preparing for an expected fall general election, will place heavy m- phasis on issues and ideas, in- cluding strong counter-attacks against Conservative Leader Robert Stanfiold. In the 19C8 campaign, with Prime Minister Trudeau's per- sonal popularity an over-riding factor, little was said about Mr. Slanfield and his prop o s a 1 s. "We gave him a free one highly-placed Liberal describes it. Tills time, replies are ready to some Stanfield statements and policies. His tax-cut propos- als will be dissected, sources say, and his charges about the alleged failure of the govern- ment regional development pro- gram in the Atlantic provinces will be countered with elaborate statistics on spending there. Nova Scotians will also be told that the trouble-plagued heavy wster plant at Glace Bay, begun while Mr. Stanfield was premier, cost provincial taxpayers more on a per capita basis than the entire space pro- gram cost U.S. taxpayers. Sources say Mr. Trudeau will enter the campaign with a hefty package of "forward-looking ideas and policies." References to Mr. Stanfield will arise "in a comparative way, in relation to our ideas." The party has prepared a long series of confidential documents to assist campaigners. One, pre- pared by the party's youth group, relates specifically to the estimated three million young people voting for the first time. There are plans to emphasize Mr. Trudeau's leadership in re- lation to these people, but al- ways in connection with issues and decisions. Other documents relale to re- gional development, to rural people, to the elderly. Although QUALITY DRY CLEANING BY THE LOAD 8-lbs.

Even before the South Dako- tan had nailed down the Demo- cratic presidential nomination, the money strategy for the fall campaign had been outlined to about 35 McGovern fund-rais- ers. That session alone netted 51.3 million from its well-heeled participants. More than 80 per cent of McGovern's money since he an- nounced for the presidency 18 months ago has come from thousands of small contributors, federal records show. But McGovern's people hope to raise S15 nearly their projected cam- paign budget in the category known to both parties as special gifts. This generally means contri- butions of S5.000 or more.

(CP) Delegates to the Canadian Po- lice Association's annual con vention heie indicated recently they were somewhat confused about a recent Supreme Court decision to give motorists the right to consult a lawyer before submitting to a breath analysis test. Police officials said they wanted to know how much time they are required to give a sus- pected impaired driver to find his lawyer prior to a breath tost. "Tins interpretation puts po- lice works in said Stan Scarr, president of the Manitoba Police Association. Syd Brown of Toronto, presl dent of the member Cana- dian Police Association, said the accused should be given a rea- sonable opportunity to consult a lawyer. However, he was con- cerned that civil actions might arise against constables who were not clear on what consti- tuted a reasonable waiting pe- riod. The associaton is expected to formally ask the federal justice department for guidelines in applying the breath test law in view of the recent court deci- Good money made in worm 'bootlegging' TORONTO (CP> Pay- ment by bait dealers of a has made worm "boot- legging" unusually attractive this year, police said here.

Stanfield election message It's bound to appeal to the lower income groups By PAUL JACKSON OUawa Herald Bureau OTTAWA Progressive con- servative Opposition Leader Robert Slanfield is bringing a message of immediate and im- poitant interest to middle and lower income groups as he starts pounding the pro-cam- paign trail. It's a message we are going to hoar a lot in the next few months. Back in May, during the budget debate, Mr. Stanfield first unveiled his concept ot the 'constant dollar1 method of tax- ation. The government hasn't been enthusiastic about it, but every income tax payer should be. Mr. Stanfield outlined his pro- posal in simple terms. He pointed out that if the cost of living increases by five per cent a year and an employee asks his employer for the same in- crease so that he can keep pace, he's still no better off in real income. Inflation has cut his paycheque down in value by five per cent, and his employer has returned the five per cent to him. But the Opposition leader stressed something that many do not the fact that in real income a person is no better off, the government will force him to pay additional income tax on that five per cent. Obviously, his income has still diminished despite the five per cent pay boost. Mr. Stanfeld says that the government shouldn't penalize 1 press release Issued by Mr. xirsons trying to keep pace with the cost of living. Only ad- ditional income on top of a cost-of-living wage boost should ace additional taxation. A sretty straightforward and sen- sible proposition? Finance Minister John Turner doesn't think so. And, from the government's point o[ view, it's easy to see why. Mr. Stanfield says the govern- ment has a vested interest in inflation. As long as inflation keeps hurtling along and em- pi o y e e s keep getting wage roosts to keep up with the soar- ing cost of living the govern- ment coffers reap more and more in taxation. The govern- ment doesn't have to go before Parliament and announce an unpopular boost in personal in- come tax, it just sits back and allows the taxpayer to be drained through the back door. A look at a long and detailed Stanfield's office just days after he made his proposal to the House of Commons shows just how much the government will receive in one fourth quarter of a fiscal year, "assuming the in- flation be compen- sated for by the constant dollars four per cent, this additional automatic revenue in relation to the fourth quarter of the 1972-73 fiscal year is esti- mated at million dollars." That's million extra in taxa- tion the average Candian lax- payer will unknowingly be hand- ing over. The situation, which It must be admitted isn't unique to the current government, "means that a taxpayer whose income simply keeps abreast of rising prices, without improving his position at all in terms fo real income, is paying more money to the government of Canada under existing circumstances, and it means that without ha7 ing taken any initiative of ib own the government of Canada is increasing its revenues at the expense of the taxpayer. As the individual citizen gets poor, the government grows was how Mr. Stanfield put it In the Commons. Mr. Stanfield has suggested another virtue to his constant dollar proijosal. Without reaping the benefit by additional taxes due to inflation, the government would either have to come before Parliament to openly hike per- sonal Income tax It would have to set about econo- mizing rather than lake other unpopular move. Of course, it is easier for someone in opposition to sug- gest radical departures from the norm than it is for a govern- ment in power to implement them. But the disturbing thing is that Mr. Turner has offered no concrete criticism of Mr. Stanfield's plan, seemingly put- ting his name and support to the back-door method of tax In- creases.
