PHONE 329-3388 CALGARY (CP) Health and Weilcire Minister Marc Ldlonde cautioned Tuesday against assuming the federal- provincial social security re- view would result in a perfect solution -the Creation of an adequate basic income He told more than delegates to the Canadian Conference on Social Welfare, So often social reform seems to suffer more from its friends than it does from its enemies "I would express to you the hope that those of you who ex- pect to much of the social se- curity review won't let the perfect become the enemy of the good Several solutions to the problem are being considered and both government levels must outline these for the public and then challenge it to come to grips with what basic family income levels should be he said In this regard, the public also must consider the standard of living different levels of income support would provide and the cost Alberta dairy workers move to reopen talks EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta Brotherhood of Dairy Employees and Drivers Salesmen says it will attempt to re-open contract negotiations with the dairies after the members rejected a conciliation award Gas sales up OTTAWA (CP) Gasoline sales in gallons were 6 5 per cent higher during the first three months of this year compared with the same period of 1973, Statistics Canada reported Thursday The report also showed that the number of service stations declined Union business agent G R Orrell said Tuesday the 600 members rejected the award despite the wage increase of a month for the first year of a two-year contract and for the second year The reason it was rejected was because the award did not contain a cost-of-livmg clause as the members had asked he said A dairy plant employee currently earns a month while driver-salesmen earn plus commission The union members are employed by Palm Dairy, Silverwood Dairy and Northern Alberta Dairy Pool The governments themselves must determine how best to coordinate the various income as those for the unemployed, poor working people, retired and that they are equitable, he said They must then find a system that guarantees the income of those who cannot work and supplement the income of those with incomes below the poverty line Mr Lalonde outlined three major approaches proposed as an answer to the problem of coordinating the various in- come levels The Liberal government fa- vored a two-tier approach which the welfare minister ta- bled in the House of Commons in April. 1973. he said This system would provide a guaranteed income for those who for a variety of reasons were unable or not expected to woik It also would offer a maintenance program for the 'working poor" with a built-in incentive to increase earnings from work and thus reduce re- liance on income supplements Mr Lalonde said the in- centive could be supplied through a tax credit which had the advantage of requiring only a single-income test and a single administration for both the ordinary tax and the income supplement A second approach would be for individual provincial governments to develop their own income-maintenance programs independent of the federal government he said Several provinces have em- barked on such a course notably the governments ot British Columbia Ontario and Saskatchewan CITE PROGRAMS The B C and Ontario governments have undertaken a program which provides special target groups, mainh the aged and disabled with support in addition to federal assistance If in fact it were decided that this was the proper course presumably the federal role would change since the case for federal sup- port of provincial welfare svstems would no longer be present Another possibiht} is providing a general guaranteed income plan similar to the one being ex penmented in Manitoba he said This plan would be un- iversal guaranteeing even Canadian resident regardless of age and abihtv to work an adequte income and retaining the incentive to work and save But it would be costh and would require an adjust ment of the tax svstem Mr Lalonde said Even more important it could well imph a significant shift in our social priorities a shift from our current pohcv of providing more assistance to those who are least able to help themselves Harry Belafonte Belafonte Canada 1974 Recorded live and feat- ures 8 special songs Elvis Aloha from Hawaii A Platinum Record '01 Elvis 2 LP set LP David Bowie Diamond Dogs David Bowies newest release Vicky Leandros Including The !_ove in Your Eyes When Bou- zoukis Played Charley Pride Country Feelm The newest release from Charlie Pride 4.99 5.88 4.99 5.
