Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta July HkKALu I. H. Asper More frustration with paying taxes The average Canadian tax- payer will be forgiven if he be- gins to see himself as a sau- sage constantly being attacked by the knives and forks of fed- eral and provincial govern- ments. He is not concerned with the niceties of the svstem, or which level of government beats the other to the bite. His chief interest is in at- tempting to understand and cope with the rides, and his atti- tude to government, generally, is formed by the impact of the total income tax'he pays, re- gardless of which government is responsible for making the demand upon him. That being the case, he will feel somewhat frustrated if he reflects upon what was said and done, and by whom, at this week's conference of federal and provincial finance minis- ters. The federal authorities called the conference to explain the proposed new federal sys- tem and attempt to blend it with the provincial income tax By Gene Fawceltt HOW LONG CAN YOU LOOK AT AN OBJECT WITHOUT BLINKING? THE TIME IN SECONDS WILL INDICATE SENSITIVITY TO PAIN. THIS ISTHE BASIS OFTHE SIMPLEST FAINTEST SO FAR ONE YOUR DOCTOR SOON TAKING YOUR PULSE OR LOOKING AT YOUR systems in an effort to have relative unifortnity across the country. Under the present federal- provincial arrangement, Otta- wa establishes the ground rules as to what is taxable, what ex- emptions and deductions will be granted, and sets the tax rates. Included in those federal tax rates is a 28 per cent built-in provincial income tax for indi- viduals, and 10 per cent for corporations. Thus if one's tax is under the rates contained in the tax forms, 28 per cent of the tax goes to the individuals home province and the balance goes to Ottawa. Each province is entitled to and in fact may increase the provincial in- come tax above the built-in 28 pf cent. For example, On tario accepts the 28 per cent of the federal tax without an in- crement, while Manitoba, a the other extreme tacks on an other 11 per cent to make the provincial tax 39 per the federal tax. Under the tax reform plan the federal authorities want t make the distinction betwee federal and provincial taxe very clear to the taxpayer s that he will know precisely wh is taking what from him. II view is correctly based on the notion that the level of govern ment which receives the ta revenue should be identified the mind of the, public. The provinces aren't alwaj happy with this kind of a rangement because it disclost 8UT3SK. the taxpayer the who's who the tax take and provincial oliticians who rail against Ot- .awa for imposing a crushing ax load are stripped of this when full disclosure is nade to the taxpayer, as the ew system requires. What's even more disturbing j the provincial finance minis- er is that because the federal axes are being reduced, the jrovincial tax will also be re- uced since it is a percentage f the federal take. The prov- nces are faced with a dilemma they accept the re- uced taxes, or face the tax- ayer squarely by raising the rovincial rates. This could put some of them n the awkwar'd position of hav- ng to tell the taxpayer that al- hough the federal tax reform ms reduced his tax. the provin- cial government is stepping in with increased taxes because it s not prepared to give up the revenue. That is what seems ;o have concerned some of the wovincial ministers at the Ot- ;awa meeting this week. As it is, if the provinces are not prepared to reduce their revenues, they will have to in- crease their tax rates, and this will certainly be observed by theif voters. For example, Ontario, British Columbia and Nova Scotia will have to charge a provincial tax of 30 per cent on the federal tax to get the same up from 28 per cent. The indivi- dual tax rate in Manitoba will move from 39 per cent up to 42 per cent. If any province wants more, it can further increase Its rates, but it will have to answer to its own electorate. The Ottawa meeting indicates that Federal Finance Minister Benson is unshakeably set forc- ing the provincial government to openly account to the peo- ple for the provincial tax and not hide behind the federal gov- ernment. While this is as it should be, it is doubtful if the average tax- payer will, at least for several years, ever really make the distinction. Since Ottawa col- lects the tax for the provinces, and the taxpayer sends his form and money to Ottawa he will still he inclined to blame the federal government for levying the taxes, notwithstand- ing that Ottawa is just a col- lection agent for the province There are already signs that some provinces will use the federal lax reductions as an opportunity to raise provincial taxes the taxpayer wont pay any more, he just won't get the reduction that Ottawa intended. Should that occur, one of the chief objectives of tax reform a lightening of the load, par- ticularly for moderate and low income earners mil be thwarted. Under those circum- stances, Ottawa would be jus- tified in breaking up the fed- eral-provincial tax sharing ar- rangement and letting each province go its own way. That would indeed be an unfortu- nate step toward establishing ten different tax structures within one country. There rests on the shoulders of the provincial governments the heavy onus to act responsi- bly and in the national inter- est in these discussions.

By PETER LEICHN1TZ Canadian Press Staff Writer Western oil issues continued to post strong advances in ac- tive trading on major Canadian stock markets this week. However in most other sec- tors prices drifted fractionally lower in light trading. The Toronto market's in- dustrial index, the prime indica- tor of market movement dropped 1.51 points to 177.25. Observers said many inves- tors now are beginning to ques- tion the strength of the economy and the success of the govern- ment's fight against inflation. _ News that unemployment in Canada rose to 6.4 per cent of the working force in June had a damping effect on the market, and sent prices moderately ower Thursday. At New York, prices closed harply lower, erasing moder- ate gains posted last week. On the Montreal and Cana- dian exchanges, the composite index rose .27 points, closing at Inflation slows south of border WASHINGTON (AP) The United States economy ad- vanced steadily but unspectacu- larly in the April-June period, but inflation slackened to the lowest rate in three years, the government said Friday. The gross national product output of goods and services showed a increase in the second quarter, but more than half the eight-per-cent climb was attributed to price in- creases. The GNP reached a seasonally adjusted annual rate of trillion in the quarter from April through June. Combined volume on the two exchanges was 7.30 million shares, compared to 6.92 million last week. Toronto, the total volume for the week was 9.09 million shares, down fiom 1231 million las'. week. The continued strength in western oils followed a report issued by the National Petro- leum Council in the U.S.' which said the country's growing en- ergy demands will result in the doubling of Canadian crude im- portation by 1985. SIGN OIL AGREEMENT Also, Panarctic Oils Ltd, of Calgary, a consortium of gas and oil companies and the fed- eral government announced it had signed a million agree- ment with four U.S. gas distri butors which will allow for ex- ploration during the next fiv years. On the week, the Toronto western oil index was up 1.22 to 233.01, its highest level since Sept. 10, 1969. At New York, an announce- ment by the. Federal Reserve Board that it has increased _ti 5ve, from 4% per cent, the dis count rate it charges its mem 3er banks for borrowing forcet prices sharply lower. The Dow Jones industrial av- erage of 30 key-blue-chip stocks ropped 13.28 points to 888.51. Volume at New York was 6.91 million shares' up from 51.52 million last week. Heavy buying and a steady in- crease in the price of gold on in- ernational money markets lelped push gold issues fraction- ally higher during the week. Re- ports, earlier in the week, that Russia was selling gold on the ree market for the first time lad little effect on prices. The Toronto market's gold index closed at. 172.65, up 1.14 points. With little news to guide investors in base metal Issues prices remained generally un- changed to fractionally lower on the week. The Toronto base metal index lost .69 points up 93.44.

Winnipeg tops price index OTTAWA (CP) "Winnipeg led all other major cities in Canada in higher prices for con- sumer goods and services in June, the Dominion Bureau of Statistics reported Friday. The consumer price index in Winnipeg, based on 1961 prices equalling 100, rose to in June from 128 in May. All other major cities recorded increases except Edmonton and Calgary, which are lumped together by the bureau for statistical pur- poses. The city indexes measure only the change of consumer prices within each city. DBS' says they cannot be used to compare liv- ing costs when the measure- ment began, and different cli- matic conditions affecting living costs. The city indexes for June, fol- lowed by the May indexes, were- St. John's, Nfld. 123.7, 123.6; Halifax 126.8, 126.6; Saint John, N.B. 125.5, 125.1; Mont- real I2G.5, 126.4; Ottawa 130.9, 130.5; Toronto 123.5, 129.2; Win- nipeg 128.7, 128.0; Saskatoon and Rcgina Edmon- ton and Calgary 127.6, 127.6; Vancouver 126.8, 126.4. Consumer prices also rose In Quebec City and Thunder Bay, Ont. Using 1969 prices ns n base represented by 100, index in Quebec City rose to 204.4 from 104.2, and in Thunder Bay it rose to 103.7 from 103.5. 1 Sponsor position, 11 scrubs, 17 Shortstop's bobble. 22 Uniformity. 23 Guardian of Mary Queen of Scots, 24 Strainer. 25 Farm dweller. 26 Extrinsic qualities. 28 Lumber- jack's boot.
