Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Annual income sparring point By AL SCARTH Herald Staff Writer More than 100 people listened Wednesday to Lethbridge candidates in the July 8 federal election spar over a guaranteed annual income for Canadians but agree corporations are making excess profits. All four candidates for the Lethbridge electoral district presented their platforms to a meeting of the young adults group at the Latter-day Saints Institute "The Progressive Conservative'- party has been against an guaranteed annual income since day Ken Hurlburt, PC candidate, said in answer to questions from the predominatly youthful audience. "People have the misconceived idea that we can all retire on a guaranteed annual income without ever having to work." Sven Ericksen, Liberal candidate, said his party favored such an income for all Canadians but it was "not something you can work out overnight." He told a questioner it would not destroy personal initiative. "It would be only a small annual he said. The Social Credit party believed all Canadians over 18 should have a share in the profits of their production, said candidate Vern Young. should pay dividends just like coporations pay dividends to the stockholders in their he said. A guaranteed income would be paid for by reducing tax rebates to large coporations, Bessie Annand, New Democratic candidate, said. Such an income would eliminate various other funds to help the disadvantaged. "Multi-national companies have no regard lor individual she said. "The money would not come from increasing personal income taxes. It would come from the profits of large corporations." She said corporations are raking in 300 to 400 per cent higher profits than they were a few years ago. Mr. Hurlburt agreed profits were high. "The reason we have unjustified profits is because no action has been taken to curb inflation. "Any company is going to up their prices because they don't know what is going to happen he said. Conservative proposals to freeze prices and wages would break the cycle. Critics of the controls never mentioned that they worked during the first stage in the United States by cutting inflation more than 3 per cent, he said. President Nixon succumbed to pressure groups in implementing selective controls, spoiling the effect, he said. "There are economic parasites at both ends of the Mr. Young said. "A multi-million dollar corporation can do more harm in a few minutes than any welfare recipient." Mr. Encksen said companies exploit the public by using percentage mark-ups. Using percentages instead of flat rates mean prices spiral, he said. Lethbridge election action central Bessie Annand, left, Ken Hurlburt, Sven Ericksen and Vern Young.

Lethbridge, Alberta, Thursday, June 27, 1974 PAGES 15-28 I F. G. SANDERCOCK'S FENCE OF MANY DOORS BILL GROENEN photo Litter prompts call for fire inspector The provincial fire inspector will be asked to do a complete inspection of Hardieville before any legal action requiring owners to clean-up their property will be taken. Coun. Steve Slemko. who represents the hamlet north of the city on Lethbridge County Council, said one property owner has failed to honor an agreement with the county to clean up his property. F.G. Sandercock had until Tuesday to remove junked cars and other litter from his lot. but Coun. Slemko. after examining conditions in Hardieville Wednesday said Mr. Sandercock hasn't complied with the county order. "I still think he should be taken to court." Coun. Slemko said. The fire commissioner will probably be asked to inspect' the hamlet before legal action is taken, he said. Letters will be sent to these residents advising them to clean up their property. Mr. Slemko said- Most people living in Hardieville want to live in a decent community, he said. COUNCILLOR WANTS END TO LITTER SOME BACK YARDS ARE FULL College dead against bypass route Long-range transportation plans for a bypass highway would isolate Lethbridge Community College from the city and cut off its future growth. College President C.D. Stewart warned Wednesday. A provincial government transportation plan that projects 25 years into the future calls for a highway- to run between the LCC campus and the city toward a crossing of the Oldman River west of 24th Avenue S. Dr. Stewart told the board of governors he met provincial government officials a couple of years ago to tell them the proposed highway was not acceptable to the college. The bypass highway, he maintained, should be routed on the south side of the college, between the campus and the airport, along the south side of Six-Mile Coulee. He thought the alternate route he proposed was accepted by the department of highways and the appropriate changes were made to the long-range transportation plans for the south end of the citv. However, he was recently- contacted by the province to sec if the college still supports the long- range plan or would prefer the highway be routed to south of the campus He told the governors "it would be terrible if you isolated the college" from the city and they agreed. The governors gave Dr. Stewart approval to again approach the province with his alternate route and express strong opposition to a bypass highway along 24th Avenue The long-term goal of the transportation plan is to allow traffic on Highways 4 and 5 to bypass the city and also to relieve pressure on the 6th Avenue S. bridge, now under construction. Planners have projected a second bridge will be a necessity somewhere around J990 However, it is possible parts of the proposed highway may become necessary in the next few years since traffic projections show a need for a traffic interchange at the junction of Highways 4 and 5 National firm takes i over hospital study A lack of progress of a seven month old study investigating health needs in Lethbridge has resulted in the hiring of a national consultants firm to complete the task. The Lethbridge Municipal Hospital Board was told at its monthly meeting Wednesday the firm of Kates, Peat, Marwick will be hired to carry out the study. Board Chairman John Moreland said the St. Michael's Hospital and LMH boards decided the hiring of the firm would complete the task faster and the steering committee for the study agreed. The health study, which was initially expected to cover health needs of the area surrounding Lethbridge as well, will only be investigating the needs of the city s two hospitals. The focus of the study now is to determine the number of duplication of services between the two hospitals and make recommendations to eliminate them. LMH Administrator Andy Andreachuck, said following the meeting the steering committee in Lethbridge had thought the rural hospitals would also be involved in the study but the Alberta Hospitals Services Commission said about two weeks ago this was a misunderstanding. "It was quite a bombshell." he said. With the framework, outline and personnel of the original study discarded it is expected the study will take about six to eight weeks to complete. There has been no date set for the firm to arrive to begin the study. Mr. Andreachuck said the firm will speed the study along and bring an objective view to the situation. Mr. Moreland said it has also been recommended that the commission fund the study through the LMH board. These changes have eliminated the initial administrators of the study the Alberta Systems Development Group. In otner business, the board was told that it will be taking over the operation of a day psychiatric program being put together in the former nurse's residence at St. Michael's Hospital This was decided at a meeting between Scott Angus. LMH psychiatric chief, and Charles Hellon. head of provincial mental health services. Their meeting resulted from the board, among others, criticising the government for a lack of mental health progress here. LEWIS HERE FRIDA Y FOR VISIT A two-and-a-half hour visit by NDP leader David Lewis to Lethbridge Friday should be amply covered by a 50-man national press contingent. The contingent will trail Mr. Lewis into the city after landing at the LethBridge airport with the national leader aboard the campaign Convair aircraft Daisy I. Mr. Lewis is the only party leader in the July 8 federal election campaign who plans -to visit Lethbridge. He will be supporting Bessie Annand.

He plans to meet locked-out Canada Packers employees in Edmonton enroute. City may not need consent of board A letter sent to the Public Utilities Board from the Save Our Power Plant Committee filing notice the group will oppose sale of the power plant may be a waste of the stamp. S. M. Barnett. acting secretary to the board, said today he is "99 per cent sure" the city can sell the power plant to Calgary Power without approval of the Public Utilities Board. "At this time, it doesn't appear the city needs our consent." Mr. Barnett said in a telephone interview from Edmonton. The board only regulates a municipal utility if consumers outside municipal boundary are served by the utility, he said. Roger Rickwood. chairman of the power plant committee, said Wednesday the group would-oppose the sale at a public hearing held by the board. Earlier a senior municipal affairs department official had indicated to City Solicitor John Hammond the sale would involve a board hearing.
