The first bulletin confirmed that the government has revised its timetable for implementing whatever tax restruc-uring it finally accepts. When the tax white paper was tabled in November, 1969, Ottawa indicated ttie public would be given until spring, 1970 to make its submissions, then the parliamentary committees would report this summer following which the cabinet would consider their reports and introduce, legislation n the fall to go into effect at the beginning of 1871. A tight .timetable indeed! So tight in fact, ft gave rise, with some justification, to the proposals, or worse, the leg-slau'on had been prepared in dvance in the expectation that nothing the public might have o say would influence the tax aw changes. To his credit, Finance Minis-er Benson has always said liat there was nothing magic bout the January, 1971 head-ine, being careful to explain hat this was only a target, and a flexible one at that. Nevertheless, until last week he suspicion prevailed that hese assurances were only camouflage and that the gov-rnment intended to use par-iamentary majority to ram hrough the tax renovations early in 1971 in the hope that )y election time 1972, the issue would be forgotten. Non-partisan participants in he dialogue were understandably relieved a few days ago when finance officials announced that the 1971 implementation date had now been Instead, the government expects to receive the reports of the parliamentary committees by late fall, consider them for several months while new legislation is drafted, introduce the tax bill in late spring or summer of 1971, conduct parliamentary debate hrough fall and winter, with he new laws taking effect January 1, 1972. The revised timetable is realistic. It reflects well on the government's appreciation of he depth of interest Canadians lave developed in this reform, recognizing that its social and economic implications far outweigh the tax effect. The deferral also authenticates Mr. Benson's assurances against railroading. The extra time should guarantee that there will be ample and sympathetic consideration given to those critics who have contributed valuable time in accepting the Government's invitation to discourse. LESS FORTUNATE The second Ottawa disclosure is less fortunate. When ;he deferral was revealed, government officials also let it be known that once the new legislation was introduced, i would go through Parliament as though it were regular tax law, without being referred again to committee. Thus while it is acceptable that separate commons and senate committees spent a year considering the conceptual aspec of the plan, they will be denied the opportunity to study the special law itself in order to assess how well it carries ou its intended effect. If that interpretation of the report is accurate, the government may well be on its way to committing a monument! error. It's quite true that as a rule tax legislation does not go through open committees where witnesses may be heard But this is not mere tax leg islation it is a new fisca package which, unlike minor improvements in the law o changes in tax rates, prom ises to have a significant per manent effect on all forms o financial activity in Canada The white paper is purposefully drafted in loose, ambig uous and often vague made in the" law. Since the u n i d e n 1 1 fled liangcs are not spelled out, ut, they have had no public ttention. Surely the public tiould be entitled to make representations on those aspects when the legislative specifics are revealed. There will be wide scope for ew comment. In all of the over tax reform there has >een no discussion on the spe-ific means by which the government intends to implement :s ideas. Since the means and echniques haven't been dis-losed because they would necessarily be highly an opportunity to make the mportant contribution of which they are eminently making certain that the aw is well drafted, leaves no oopholes, creates no traps, is clear, unambiguous and workable. They can only do so once specific legislation is introduced. The bill will be lengthy and highly technical. This would not be the first time that Parliament and the public a plan in principle, but vhat com'es out in legislation is something else. To deny the )ublic the benefit of submissions and appearances before committees of Parliament by tax professionals commenting on the reform bill itself would je tantamount to insulating the government from those who mow more about the subject han it does itself. PUBLIC HEARINGS There are many other reasons that dictate the necessity of referring the legislation to public hearings, even apart from the fact that this is specifically what the Carter Commission urged. One such reason is that there are recurring rumors to the effect that the actual law will contain many major items that can't be readily discerned from the white paper itself. Should that be true, and these changes ere carried into law, then the credibility and integrity of the entire white paper process would be tarnished something that neither Mr. Trudeau nor Mr. Benson would relish. Admittedly, public hearings on the specific legislation should not simply be a rehash of the white paper (as eventually amended) controversy. This could readily be avoided, if when the legislation is ready for public hearings, strict terms of reference and subject limitation are imposed on participants. They could be required to confine their submissions to matters which were not clearly raised in the white paper, or to the means by which the objectives are being accomplished, or to the technical imperfections in the proposed law. For the government to do less would please only the opposition parties who would then have been handed a modern photocopy of the 1956 pioe-line issue abuse of Parlia- PttG 48.00 CALOAHY Uni.S.vlnoV 5.76 Dynamic Pete 1.13 A 77 VANCOUVER French Pele 5.05 Jna .07 ZO Sin Arctic Mining .30 Mill City 1.30 N rth Cont M14 Atlas Ex 1.11 New Cont .89 .2!
