Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 6, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Salurday, Juno 6, 197Q THE lEfHBRlnGE 8 Suggests Kefprms Should Be Shelved Alberta Denounces Government's Tax-Change WINNIPEG (CP) Alberta today denounced federal tax- cha'iige proposals and said the idea of total tax reform should be shelved. Alberta Treasurer A. 0. Aal- borg presented the province's opposition in a document three times as thick as the original federal white paper issned last Nov. 7. Mr. Aalborg was third in line at the federal-provincial finance conference to issue strong criti- cism of Ottawa's proposals. Ontario offered what it called alternative proposals for com- prehensive tax reform. Quebec presented a series of "sugges- tions" that would radically alter fundamental features of the fed- eral program. British Colum- bia's past comments indicate tire Pacific province would line up with Alberta's condemi'-.uln. Said Mr. Aalborg: "Because our own analysis in- dicates that the proposed sys- tem would have an adverse af- fect on our provincial economy and therefore on the welfare of all Albcrlans, we cannot support the major reform proposals in the white paper as a package." While supporting in principle but with reservations some minor features oC the federal paper, including increased per- sonal tax exemptions, Alberta cpposes introduction of any cap- ital gains tax, the federal pro- posals for taxation of corpora- tions are! shareholders and pro- posed changes in tax conces- sions to mining and oil compa nies. Abo rejected by Alberta were federal proposals oil taxation of utilities and a plan to abandon the special, low rate of corpo- rate tax on the first of a company's profits. BACKS PRESENT SYSTEM Mr. Aalborg said the present system should be retained, with the possibility of "gradual intro- duction of reasonable tax ic form measures."

"Tiie government of Albert; does not support state control o' our economic development.
