Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 7, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta my- .SIX m THE LETHBniDGE DAlLf HfiRAU) OFMSUNIll THEIR ISOVER (Special to th� Hernid) ^ Edmonton, Alberta,- Mnrcli 7. - �tn the legislature ^Vednesday after* noon � bill' entitled tho Patriotic Tax and Soldiers' Homes - Protection Act, was on the motion of Hon, Wilfrid .Oarlepy read-a tlrst time, repealing the patriotic tax act in regard to the tm-poslng of tasos for the patriotic fund and In regard to voluntarily granting xemptlons in. favor.of land owned .hs oldlers. In tho future It will be ab-�oluLely Incumbent upon the local au' thorlty whetlier In city, town or vl! ' lage or In the country, to give abso->lute exemption from taxes of every "kind to soldiers' homes until a certain period after the war or until dlBchargc. The provision In regard to the patriotic fund, Mr. Oarlepy explained. Was In consequence of the decision of the government to raise the contribution of the province by taxation. The new bill, be said, would not take away from any municipal body or school district the power to grant exemption entirely or partially In favor of the property owned by a soldier and It also retained the power given the govern-inent to give exemption by order in council In regard to taxes paid by a ebldier's wife. . The old act described the soldiers as aen who had actually enlisted. That : prorlsion, said the minister, was retained In the new legislation, and pro-.tectlon was extended to hta dependents, particularly widows. The act fould also cover the conscripted men. There would be absolute exemption In lavor of tie soldier from the patriotic tax On the motion of the Hon. G. P. Smith, the act imposing a tax on persons attending places of amusements i�hlch will effect a readjustment of the taxes proposed, and Introduce compulsory powers, was read a first time. The bill amending the Lethbridge city charter was .^Iso read a first time on the motion of Mr. Hoadley. FPERS TALK OF E New Yorlc.
