Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta MONDAY, JUNE 24, 1946' THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD PAGE THKJiB MANITOBA READY TO ACCEPT TAX PLAN TORONTO, June Premier Carson of Manitoba said today that "sensible co-operation between the provinces and the Dominion under a Dominion-provincial agreement is the best way to preserve con- federation" and "a good way to wreck our post-war prospects" is to return to a tax structure like iag Chemical Carton said Manitoba was pre pared to accept the Dominion pro- posal for a three-year tax agree- ment "not because it was perfect, bat because ve thought the pro- vinces would be much better off with the agreement than they would be with KO agreement."

TURNOVER TAX Qut "in the light of the Dom- inion's willingness to give effect to the provinces' unanimous request to impose an indirect retail turnover tax -which would be more productive than all of minor fields tpul together this autonomy argu- ment does not seem too im- pressive." As to the argument that the Do- rcinion should give up minor tax fields to eliminate double taxation. "the imposed these taxes ana the Dominion is answerable to the people of Canada for their con- tinuance." "I suggest that to place the Do- minion's apoeal of these minor taxes in the same plans of import- ance as the conclusion of a Domin- icn-orovincial agreement indicates a lack of a sense of proportion and does not concede to the agreement lutes them."
