Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 19, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 - THI ItTHBRIDOl HERALD - Friday, March It, 1971 Private sector must do more EDMONTON (CP) - The Alberta legislature wound up the budget debate Thursday night and moved into detailed study of department spending estimates. The debate lasted for 18 days and involved 30 speakers, in-eluding eight Progressive Con servative opposition members, nine cabinet ministers and 13 Social Credit backbenchers. Final speaker was Provincial Treasurer A. 0. Aalborg, who intends to retire at the end of the current session, his 23rd in the legislature. Mr. Aalborg said the $1.2-bil-lion budget will make it necessary for the province to do some direct borrowing but the cost of servicing the direct debt - $15 million in the 1971 72 fiscal year. - will still fall well below interest earnings of $24 million on government investments. Noting the current fiscal year ends March 31, he suggested the legislature stream line its proceedings and get into department estimates earlier. The provincial treasurer said he Is concerned with ever-increasing demands by society on governments and a growing Taxes hiked for islanders CHARLOTTETOWN (CP) - Higher sales and personal income taxes were announced for Prince Edward Islanders Thursday when the Liberal govern* ment presented a deficit budget to die legislature. Treasurer T. Earle Hickey said the sales tax would be increased to eight per cent from seven effective midnight Thursday. The personal income tax rate will jump five percentage points to 33 per cent effective July 1. Mr. Hickey estimated the government would incur a deficit of $2,868,825 in the fiscal year ending March 31, 1972. The higher sales tax will provide a additional $1,128,000 in revenue while the income tax increase would add $582,000. Wins million TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Ed-ward Henry, a 40-year-old telephone company worker, is the first $1 million winner in New Jersey's new lottery. He will receive $50,000 a year for 20 years. Henry is married and the father of two, and his wife, 26, expects to give birth to their third next month. feeling that almost every problem should be handled by the public sector. One result had been that the province's budget has increased from $414 million in 1964 to the current $1.2-billion level. The private sector must do more to meet the needs of the people, he said. PARKS Ed Benoit (SC - Okotoks High River) suggested a few million dollars be taken out of the education budget and spent on parks development. Education, which will get about 35 per cent of the budget in 1971' 72, wouldn't miss a few million, he said. Education Minister Robert Clark said costs of financing the grades one-to-12 system in Alberta has increased from $115 million in 1961 to an estimated $375 million in 1971. The provincial government's contribution has increased from $53 million to $208 million in the same period of time. Hugh Horner (PC - Lac Ste. Anne) suggested district agriculturists extend their duties into the fields of marketing, inventory collecting and rural industrial development. INTEGRATION An integration of agricultural colleges and community colleges was recommended by Leighton Buckwell (SC - Mac-leod). He said this would avoid duplicate courses. Bill Yurko (PC - Strathcona East) said the 117 inspectors responsible for controlling the use and disposal of agricultural chemicals in the province should be trained to also look a f t e r air and water pollution. He said the agricultural chemicals act should be transferred from the agriculture department to the new department of the environment.

CLUB Corner 2nd Ave. and 13th Street North ENTERTAINMENT IN THE CLUBROOMS FRIDAY AND SATURDAY "ANYTHING GOES" Members and Invited Guests! Off-track betting 'premature9 CALGARY (CP) - The general manager of the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede board said Thursday it doesn't appear that there will be off-track betting this year in Calgary and Edmonton. Bill Pratt was commenting on reports from Ottawa which terDied i Western Canada Racing Association proposal to start off-track betting in both cities as "premature" and not acceptable. Calgary was scheduled to open two shops April 30, the day the association's thoroughbred racing season opened its 1971 schedule in Edmonton. "We were all set to go ahead. This thing has come as quite a shock." The Calgary and Edmonton exhibition boards, through their wholly - owned race track operating company-the West- Grain fund depleted EDMONTON (CP) - Alberta' Agriculture Minister Henry Ruste said Thursday he has received no official documents on the federal government's proposed prairie grain stabilization, plan and is concerned it means' less federal support for agriculture. Mr. Ruste, in a news release, said the principle of stabilizing the western grain industry is good because it is necessary for "a stable western economy." However, Mr. Ruste said the success of the proposed federal program will "depend directly on the federal government's financial input." "They are saving around $45 million a year by discontinuing the temporary wheat reserves program," he said. "If they are simply shuffling these and other monies now being spent on the grains industry, we have not gained much." Mr. Ruste said the revised federal plan, announced March 15 by Otto Lang, included some recommendations about an original plan proposed by Mr. Lang last October. "For example, they agreed payment into the fund should be on the basis of two parts from the federal treasury and one part from grain producers as opposed to the original which called for equal contributions from both." Mr. Ruste said Ottawa also agreed to the province's suggestion it should contribute to the stablizatdon fund each year whether ot not it requires' the money. The federal government decided against Alberta's suggestion that it assume the costs of any losses in the grain pools, but did decide that any such losses should be paid from the fund, he said. "This is an improvement on the original idea of carrying losses forward to future pools but we are disappointed because the fund will be depleted by grain pool losses." End $1 fee EDMONTON (CP) - The current $1 fee for copies of high school transcripts showing student's marks will be eliminated April 1, Dr. J. E. Reid, director of operational research for the department of education said. A $1 fee will still be charged for each additional copy, Dr. Reid said. BANK CUTS RATE SAN FRANCISCO (Reuter) -The Bank of America, the largest in the United States, has joined Chase Manhattan Bank of New York as the second major bank to reduce its prime lending rate by one-half of one per cent to 5V4 per cent. ern Canada Racing Association -last week outlined plans for two off-track sites in both cities. The plan, the boards said, received approval from Benson plans 'ownership' comment KINGSTON, Ont. (CP) - Finance Minister E. J. Benson said Wednesday his department will release a statement "in the near future" on'foreign ownership in Canada. He said he has deliberately avoided comment on foreign ownership until now. He said the finance minister can do a great deal of harm simply speaking of the problems of foreign ownership without offering viable solutions. He referred to what he said was the reported comment of Toronto publisher Jack McClelland last Thursday that the Committee for an Independent Canada would try to oust Mr. Benson in his home riding of Kingston and the Islands unless the finance minister adopts a policy favoring Canadian independence. Mr. McClelland, co-chairman of the committee, has since denied the comment. Mr. Benson noted that the local chapter of the CIC had said it was pleased with Ottawa because the government had indicated it will purchase Home Oil Co. of Calgary to avoid a United States takeover. Power plant announced at Canal Flats VICTORIA (CP) - Power projects costing "several hundreds of millions of dollars" were announced for British Columbia in the legislature Thursday. Ray Williston, minister of lands, forests and waiter resources, announced the projects - to be completed over the next five years - during debate on his department's spending estimates. The new projects, he said, are: The No. 9 generating plant in the Peace River project; another thermal plant on Burrard Inlet near Port Moody; a plant on the Canal Flats area in the Kootenays, and two small fossil-fuel plants on Vancouver Island. Mr. Williston told the House it is the government's policy to get all the power it can on the provincial grid. But at the same time he ruled out any form of nuclear power plant. Speech program by Stirling group STIRLING (HNS) - Talks and stories were given by eight teenagers at the Mutual Improvement Association speech festival.

However, Harvey PudwelL executive assistant to Agricul ture Minister H. A. Olson, told the boards of the government's position: "The whole matter of off-track betting is currently under review by Justice Minister John Turner and the provincial attorneys - general. At the moment, the govesnment is not willing to treat one case by itself. : "They want to set up regulations to cover an parts of Canada." He said a proposal, such as the one made for Alberta, requires by law total supervision by the department of agriculture. "At the moment, the minister does not have sufficient staff and facilities to supervise off-track betting on a nationwide scale." DISAPPOINTED In Edmonton, Attorney-General Edgar Gerhart said he was "disappointed, naturally," with the department's decision, however, "the off-track betting Drury buried VICTORIA (CP) - Funeral service was held Thursday for Kenneth Charles Drury, prominent British Columbia newspaper man, who died Sunday after a brief Illness. He was 78. Mr. Drury started his news-, paper career with the Victoria Times before the First World War. He became editor of The Times in 1936. In 1944, he was appointed editor of the Vancouver News Herald, leaving to become assistant to the publisher of the Vancouver Sun in 1955. He retired the following year, moving back to his native Victoria. He was a member of the Canadian Press for the Victoria Times 1936 - 45, and a CP director for the same period. Funeral service was at Christ Church Anglican Cathedral. plan was contingent upon the federal department's approval and both boards were negotiating with the department with that in mind." He called it "a short-sighted policy" adding Alberta will continue to make further representation on its point of view. Ottawa faces a difficulty in coming up with legislation gov-err!*g off-track betting that would be fair to all provinces because ('liferent provinces operate horse racing in a differ* ent manner, Mr. Gerhart said. Alberta's proposal was that any legislation brought In to govern off-track betting should leave it to the discretion of the provinces in much the same w a y as lotteries are now governed, he said. "We were going along, with off-track betting at the in-str 3 of both the federal and provincial governments," Mr. Partridge, manager of advertising and promotions for the Edmonton Exhibition Association, said. '""hey wanted a controlled situation regarding betting off-track." The federal department of. justice and the provincial attorney-general's department were the ones concevned, and were working together to swing the Edmonton - Calgary off-track betting shops as a "Canadian experiment," Mr. Partridge said.
