Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGfc HERALD Saturday, Junn 5S, 1973 Being oil rich has given Albertans many advantages EDMONTON (CP> The ad- vantages of living on top of Canada's greatest proven re- serves of oil and gas strike many Albertans at every turn The besi-knovm advantage is Alberta's position as the only province in Canada without a provincial sales tax. Assured of new revenue from natural resources, the govern- ment moved during the spring session of the legislature to give Albertans a singular advantage in other directions. II lowered property taxes, provided an income-tax credit tn renters, proposed a system of rebates to Alberta consumers of natural gas and announced the spending of ill 6 million to make natural gas available for SO.000 rural households. In addition, there were plans for grants of up to S250 lot- users of propane gas or fuel oil who live in locations too remte for economic delivery of natural gas by pipeline. CUT PHONE COSTS Not directly related to oil and gas but still the product of an economy rich through natural resources were plans to spend S40 million to eliminate long-dis- tance telephone charges be- tueen many rural areas and S10 million to help towns and vil- lages improve traffic facilities On the money-saving side.

The stranger was reported to have told the Ibans to open their mourning period with a fresh head of an enemy. He then vanished as mysteriously as he had appeared.

Instead, a S4.5-milhon pro- crani for the current year is aimed at bringing "early child- hood education" to those who need it from poor families and remote areas. The government's biggest neu expenditure results from the anticipated million extra expected this year in increased oil royalties. The oil and gas industry al- ready pays about million a j ear in royalties, bonuses and leases The payoff isn't endless, how- ever. Last year, the province produced more ciude oil than it found and reduced its remain- ing oil reserves to 17 years at J972 production rales. For the piesent, new oil revenues will be used to pay for most of a program cost- ing S104 million a year Property owners will in longer be faced with a 30-mill levy for education. They will get refunds up to a maximum of a year from their prop- erty taxes, an increase fro'Ti 1972. Renters will receive an in- come-tax credit of up to S100 a year on the grounds that they pay property taxes indirectly through their landlords. Under the plan, municipalities would have their costs for hos- pitals and local health units as well as 90 per from 80 per their social-assist- ance costs paid for by the pro- vincial government. There was million a year in unconditional grants to mu- nicipalities under the plan and S19.5 million in incentive grants to municipalities that kept an- nual spendng increases to 7.5 per cent or less. WANTS MORE FOR GAS Another boon for Alberta is the proposal of Premier Peter opposed by raise the wellhead price of natural gas but give Al- berta consumers a rebate. This xvpuld, in effect, create t two- price system. The Alberta government would expect to gain additional revenues of about million a year if the price was raised by a figure between the 10 to 20 cents per cubic feet that Alberta wants above the cur- rent rate of about 16 cents. Ontario says such an increase could cost its residential con- sumers and industries bil- lion during the next 30 years. The government plans to ex- pand its home market for natu- ral gas by spending million in grants to gas companies or co-operatives to expand serv- ices with grants to a maximum of for each household. The household itself would responsible for conversion costs up to Four-fifths of Albertans al- ready have access to natural gas. A subsidy of 40 per cent of the cost of a tank to a max- imum of is to be paid to users of propane gas and fuel oil who live in remote areas be- yond the limit to which natural gas can be delivered at a cost of per household. A second program aimed at rural residents involves the spening of million to allow people in adjacent communities to call from one rural exchange to another without paying long- distance charges, as at present.
