Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 8, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ideas for industrial growth asked by Premier Lougheed By GREG MclNTYHE I Herald Stall Wrilcr Premier Pcler Lougheed is looking for ideas from the Al- berta business community on ways to encourage the growth of secondary industry, particu- larity -n smaller centres out- side Edmonton and Calgary. The premier challenged bus- isnessmen at a chamber of commerce meeting in northern Alberta recently to come up with a tax incentive system that would favor tlie growth of small communities. He said in an interview later, however, that he doubts if a tax plan would work, since taxes seem to be levied "right across the board" and do not discriminate between large and small locations. The governments of Alberta and British Columbia are both developing industrial incentive programs to encourage the lo- cation of secondary industry to take some of the emphasis off the primary, resource extrac- tion industries. B.C. is concerned with its heavy reliance on the forest and mining industries. Alberta is concerned with its over dependence on the agri- culture and petroleum indus- tries. Both hope to attract job-cre- ating processing and manufac- turing industry. Premier Lougheed hopes to supplement the Alberta govern- ment's new million industri- al incentive plan with some scheme that would meet appro- val of the business community. unlikely for a few years Lethbridge is currently too small for dial-a-bus says city transit superintendent John but w Uh the growth of residential neighbor- hoods on the west side, H might be worth considering.
