Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 27, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Crowd at the pumps Early birds wait for a service station' t o open for the day in Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard to get gasoline for their cars. Recently the nine stations on the island were forced to close early because of panic buying by residents and tourists. House recess signs seen as major bills pushed OTTAWA (CP) With sum- mer at hand after nearly six tense months of minority gov- ernment in the 29th Parliament, signs of adjournment are emerging this week as the Com- mons rushes toward completion of several major bills. Observers forecast, however, that the summer recess will not begin before the second week of July; some pessimists think late July is a more reasonable guess. This week, after the House wades through the remaining 1973-74 budget estimates today with several votes in the proc- ess, attention turns first to pro- posed legislation aimed at rais- ing funds for the 1976 Summer Olympics at Montreal. The bill, ready for second reading, would permit the spe- cial issuance of stamps and coins to commemorate the Olympics and the government thinks million can be raised to offset an anticipated deficit in the financing of the Games. Of the total, million Would come from the sale of stamps and other postal prod- ucts while the coins, with a market value of million, would add the other million after minting expenses have been deducted. A national lottery also would be permitted, in the hope the rest of the cost o the Games will be covered. Ot tawa has refused to balance any deficit the Olympics maj incur. HAD HOLIDAY After losing a day the House didn't sit because i was St. Jean Baptiste Day in time will be los next Monday when Dominion Day is observed. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of this week are to be devoted to committee of the whole consideration and, sai< Government House Leader Al- lan MacEachen, "hopefully third reading" of Income Tax Act amendments.

One Income Tax Act amend- ment is designed to permit the manufacturing and processing industry to write off machinery capital investment faster. It also would reduce the corporate tax to 40 per cent from 49. This got second reading last Wednesday when the Con- servatives and the Social Cred- iters joined the Liberals in vot- ing for the measures. The vote was II4 to 30 in favor of second reading with all New Demo- crats present against it.

ALL AGREED The other Income Tax Act amendment, personal tax cuts, got second reading a week ago with all four parties in support. An increase in the basic per- sonal exemption to from for a single person and to from for married couples would be retroactive to last Jan. 1, as would a basic federal tax cut of five per cent with a minimum reduction of and maximum of Finance Minister John Turner says the reductions will give taxpayers an additional bil- lion in disposable income, 70 per cent of it for families whose total annual income is less than The government also proposes to tie income taxes to the con- sumer price index but this not be implemented until 1874. Also scheduled to be dealt with this week are amendments to pension legislation and to the Parole Board Act. The first would exempt some religions sects such as Hutte- rites and Mennonites from con- tributing to the Canada Pension Plan. The second would permit appointment of up to 10 more members to the parole board to handle an increasing work load. ALBINO CRAB ALERT BAY, B.C.

Wednesday, June 27, 1973 THE LETHMIDGE HIRAlD 21 Alberta could set Aug. 1 target for gas increase-Lougheed EDMONTON (CP) Alberta could set its long-anticipated natural gas royalty increase Aug. 1, Premier Peter Loug- heed indicated Tuesday. He told a news conference that the August date is the tar- get for cabinet to put together the provincial government's po- sition on a gas royalty increase. He said the announcement "could be more than a position paper." The government on that date could announce new royalty regulations or intent of regu- lations, the premier said, that Banff may get more power to deal with problems BANFF (CP) Residents of this national park town soon will be given more power to deal with local problems, says Jean Chretien, Indian affairs and northern development min- ister. But he did not outline how or when the new powers might be provided in a closed meeting with members of the Banff Ad- visory Council and organizers of a citizen's committee on housing. Don Becker, chairman of the advisory council's constitution committee, said in an interview a council plan presented to parks officials proposes a local government based on regula- tions set down in Alberta's Towns and Villages Act. The proposal would create an elected governing body includ- ing a mayor and councillors with power to deal with most lo- cal matters. It also would have the authority to raise taxes. But the parks branch would have the power to veto council decisions which conflict with the National Parks Act, he said. Residents could appeal such vetoes. could result in a new royalty rate half again as high as the current 16 2-3-per-cent max- imum. The premier said the an- nouncement could be more than a position paper because the government has already gone through the lengthy process of hearings on oil royalties "that also involved gas royalties." There was no intention to hold hearings on the natural gas move this year. Mr. Lougheed has said the gas industry already has the guideline before it of the in- creases in crude oil royalties approved by the legislature last year. The oil revenue plan con- tained the. alternatives for oil companies of paying a new roy- alty rate half again as high as the old 16 2-3-per-cent max- imum or accepting a tax on re- serves that would mean roughly the same payment to the pro- vincial government. Oil companies have until next month to decide which option they want to accept. Mr. Loug- heed said Tuesday the most pressing natural resource mat- ters before the government are the oil royalty or reserve tax options, the establishment of natural gas royalties and a de- cision on the proposed Syncrude Oil Sanda plant in the Ath- abasca oil sands. These decisions hold priority over the province's plans to de- velop a two-price rebate system for Alberta natural gas con- sumers, he said. The Ontario government has taken objection to this proposed scheme. The premier said Alberta Gas consumers haven't yet felt the pressure of the government's policy to increase the price of natural gas leaving the field In Alberta but the rebate plan, which will likely be ready next winter, will come into effect when the pressure of increased prices become significant. He said he has not beard thing further on Ontario's plans to test the legality of Alberta's planned two-price natural gas system in the courts but he said he has "an ear cocked to the east."
