Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta No incentives to save in white paper: Rhind EDMONTON (CP) - Incentives to encourage voluntary savings by Canadians are a major and basic element missing from the federal governments' white paper on income security, J. A. Rhind of Toronto, president of National Life Assurance Co. of Canada, said here. Persons who are taxed to provide income security for others and who forego current consumption to save for the security of their own families should be recognized with provision of incentives to encourage them in their savings programs. This principle already is ac- FOR DAILY INSPIRATION Dial-A-Thought 327-4581 cepted in the form of tax deductions for registered retirement savings plans, said Mr. Rhind, also vice - president of Measure ice from air TORONTO (CP) - Federal government researchers recently made what are believed to be the first measurements of sea ice thickness from an aircraft, a Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute symposium was told here.

"This incentive could be broadened on these plans and should be extended to encourage other forms of voluntary savings ... "From the standpoint of national economic policy, it would result in increases in pools of private capital that would counterbalance the trend toward state capitalism and foreign ownership. "And incentives of this nature to encourag- � volunt a r y savings could well save the state from costly social assistance expenditures in the future." Mr. Rhind said the implications of the channelling to provincial governments of vast amounts of enforced sav i n g s under the Canada Pension Plan should be disturbing to businessmen. "Such distributions of capital indicate a major step toward state capitalism, a condition under which decisions regarding the capital expenditures in a country are made by civil servants rather than by private businessmen. I don't think this is a trend most Canadians want to see." ..Mr. Rhind criticized the Canada Pension Pirn for being funded on an actuarially � unsound basis.; It was creating a "staggering financial problem" for future generations who were subsidizing "bargains" for current plan participants. "It's a bit like pollution - it may not be too bad today, but we are surely creating a financial mess for the future." The statements were included in a text of the speech issued to the press before delivery. RANKS FOURTH British Columbia ranks fourth amongst the provinces in total mineral production.

Sesame Street TV show to continue OTTAWA (CP) - The Oana dian Radio-Television Commission announced Wednesday that private stations affiliated with the CBC may exceed the CRTC's 35-per-cent United States content limit to broadcast the .U.S.-produced children's TV show, Sesame Street. The relaxation of the rule applies for the program year starting next fall, the commission said in a statement. The commission said that the "CBC has not indicated to the commission that it would need any special application of the program policy in order to be able to show this program on its own stations during the next program year."

The CRTC said it "wishes to emphasize that the decision to show or not show a program is taken by individual broadcasters and not by the CRTC." "It is a choice to be made by broadcasters to show Sesame Street and to eliminate another American program or to eliminate Sesame Street and instead show another American program. "However, the commission having studied the views expressed by private affiliates of the CBC, is prepared for the program year starting in the fall of 1971, to authorize these affiliates to exceed the percentage of programs imported from the United States-namely 35 per cent-if this is caused by the showing of Sesame Street."

The department reported Tuesday that up to Monday night refund cheques totalling $87 million were prepared for 703,264 taxpayers. Comparable figures for a year ago were cheques totalling $58 million for 526,983 taxpayers. The revenue department has received an estimated 2.9 million 1970 tax returns, compared with 2.8 million by the same date last year. This year, 796,157 returns have been assessed, compared with 603,831 last year. The deadline for filing completed income tax returns is April 30. The department's computers, which check each taxpayer's new return for errors as well as comparing it with previous years' returns, developed a fault a month ago when new duties were assigned to it. It has been overcome, a revenue department source said.
