By I. H. ASPER Two separate but considera- bly significant events took place during the past few weeks on the Canadian tax scene. While both are still In the suggestion stage, if either proceeds to im- plementation, the Canadian tax system would become very dif- ferent indeed. The first event was the an- nouncementby Opposition leader Robert Stanfield that were he to form a government, he would radicalize the personal income tax system by removing the inflationary component from one's taxable income. He would accomplish this by allowing the taxpayer, each year a deduction equal to the cost-of-living incre- ment so that one would pay tax only on his actual spending pow- ers for the year, expressed In constant dollars. The second event consist's of a series of moves by Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia ant the Atlantic provinces in what looks like a drift toward abolish ing death taxes in most cases in most provinces. Should lh occur, we will have taken a ISCKlcgree turn from where we were at the beginning of thi year. And, Alberta Premie Peter Ixiugheed, though not nee OUW a.m. Quotes!

In response, two weeks ago, B.C. announced total abolition, and Ontario reacted by appointing a special legislative committee to recommend a course of action step which will likely lead to an abandonment program In Ontario of one kind or another. The Atlantic area now is await- ing Ontario's decision before reassessing its position. That's tax warfare.
