II. ASPEIl The top tax issue of the past week was unquestionably the disclosure in an> Ottawa court that justice department officials intend to make use of informa- tion in the confidential tax re- turns of individuals received by the department of national reve- nue. At the time of writing, the issue is still in the air, with Revenue Minister Herb Gray having being peppered with questions in the Commons in the moments before the house re- cessed for the summer. Presumably the issue will be in favor of maintaining the confidentiality of informa- tion contained hi an individual's tax returns. If it is not, govern- ment will have effectively smashed one of the-cornerstones of the foundation of the Cana- dian self-assessing tax honor system. There are many things wrong with the Canadian tax system, but there are more things which are right. One of those is the tradition that whatever a tax- payer honestly discloses in his tax return shall remain a secret to be shared with no the tax collector is to know for sure, and he's not to tell anyone else. Take that away and you create a powerful incentive to withhold information. If we create an environment In which Canadians are afraid to fully disclose their affairs in their tax returns because of the risk of that information being made public, at great cost or embarrassment to themselves, they will be tempted to adopt the attitude which is prevalent in many other countries: tell the government only that which they could find out for them- selves. The result is widespread tax evasion. In the case wlu'ch has at- tracted public interest, both the facts and the law are quite straightforward. The case before the federal court involves an action by the federal government to quash a ruling made by the federal tar- iff tribunal in 1970. The tribunal had then ruled that certain glass products being Imported from Iron Curtain countries con- stituted "dumping" and ordered special anti-dumping tariffs to be charged against the goods, cost, the decision worked to the Since this increased their cost, the decision worked to the advantage of Canadian sheet glass manufacturers, who would YOUR WHOOP-UP DAY "FUN CENTRE" The El Rancho Motor Hotel "Where the Action Is" Direct from "Oil Can Harrys" in Vancouver KIBA" Playing from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Nightly Monday, July 17th thru Saturday, July 22 in tho Cabaret AZTEC LOUNGES NIGHTLY JULY 17-22 BALLADS BY WILLIAM JAMES ROGERS otherwise have had to lower their prices in order to be com- >etilivo. The application to the anti-dumping tribunal was spon- sored by two leading Canadian sheet glass manufacturers. The federal government is now attempting to set aside the ribunal's original order on the ;rounds that the tribunal chair- man was biased In favor of the wo Canadian glass companies, n order to prove the case, the assistant deputy altorney-gen- :ral C. R. 0. Munro told the court he intended to He certain ax returns of individuals and companies involved in the case, le acknowledged these tax re- turns had been taken from the department of national revenue. Defence lawyers protested vigorously as Mr. Munro argued .hat the tax laws allow the jus- ice department to make use of nformation filed with the reve- nue department when the use of .hat data is for the "good of jublic administration and jus- ice." That just isn't so, or at least .hat is not what the law intends. The new income tax law carries 'orward the provisions of the old system in this regard. The act states clearly that no offi- cial shall release any informa- tion the revenue department has received in carrying out its tax collecting function. As Revenue Vlinister Herb Gray pointed out In the house on Friday, there are exceptions to the rule, but nothing remotely similar to what Mr. Munro proposed to do in the tariff case. At the instant of writing, no great damage has been done. But Revenue Minister Gray and Justice Minister Otto Lang have a responsibility to protect the system. A statement of the gov- ernment's commitment to pre- lect the traditional secrecy ot lax returns and an assurance that it will not he breached in the present case, would be help- ful for openers. More important, the responsi- ble ministers must investigate to determine whether or not revenue officials have handed private information to justice officials regarding taxpayers' affairs. If so, appropriate disci- plinary action should be taken. The purpose of the income tax division is to encourage people to fully disclose their income, regardless of the source, how- ever illicit, so that they will not conceal their income out of a fear that the disclosure of their income and its source will lead to other trouble.

Edmonton, Allo. vacy of their lax returns, would the gambler, the prostitute, the police undercover informer re- veal their income, only to have th3ir returns used to convict them of non-tax offences? Would the taxpayer who earns income from sources which would be embarrassing if dis- closed to competitors through public trials, declare his Income or would he be inclined to fake it through a maze of corpora- tions, trusts and so? Likely the latter. On this basis, May shipments were down 3.1 per cent from April. New orders were off 3.4 per cent, and unfilled orders rose at the end of the month 1.5 per cent.

Manufacturing pace dips after seasonal adjustment OTTAWA (CP) Manufac- turing activity surged ahead in May but, taking seasonal fac- tors into account, it really lagged behind the pace of April activity, Statistics Canada re- ports. Manufacturer's shipments were estimated ai billion for May, up from billion hi April and ?4.4B billion in March. New orders placed with manu- facturing plants during May rose to billion from billion in April and billion in March. The backlog of unfilled orders at the end of May also rose, to J4.7B billion from billion u April and billion in March the statistics bureau said. It added that the increase ii May shipments was 5.5 per cenl over revised April figures, and shipments for the first fivt months of 1972 were up 10.2 pei cent. This increase was not re- fleeted, however, in seasonally- adjusted statistics. The bureau justed rates of manufacturing shipments, new orders and un- filled orders to show the under- lying level of activity as If il were not affected by seasonal conditions.
