Higher income taxes declared by corporations OTTAWA (CP) Corporations declared a total of billion in income taxes for the 1971 tax year, an increase of 10 per cent over the year before, Statistics Canada said Monday. Tenders called for coal probe EDMONTgN_4CP) The Alberta Council has called for tenders to begin the first phase of a three-year program to estimate the reserves and quality of Alberta's central plains coal. The program planned for this summer will involve drilling about 100 holes to a maximum depth of feet. Dr. Robert Green of the research council said Monday. The drilling will investigate thermal coal zones between Drumheller and Whitecourt and will involve drilling one hole per township, Dr. Green said. The initial program will cost about Programs of similar magnitude are planned for 1975 and 1976. The coal zone to be investigated is the same as that currently being mined around Lake Wabamun. This zone dips to depths greater than feet below the surface in the western part of the province. The Energy Resources Conservation Board estimates that future power plant demand will make mining economic to the level. The program is the first major effort to' assess the deeper Dr. Green said. Coal exploration drilling in the plains of Alberta until now has been restricted to 100- 150 feet. The 1974 drilling program is to provide a general outline of the coal reserves. Later exploration will be required to provide detailed information on the reserves. Rail line subsidies examined EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta agriculture department is examining whether the CNR and CP rail owe some money for federal rail line subsidies they did not use. Agriculture Minister Hugh Homer told the legislature Monday that railways receive federal subsidies to keep open certain lines they would like to abandon. However, some lines have remained idle this winter because of snow. The departmental examination will centre on methods to speed up grain deliveries. Dr. Homer told Catherine Chichak (PC Edmonton The rise, in a year of economic recovery, compared with a decline of million in 1970, the report said. A total of active corporations were included in the report for 1971, of which 115.000 showed a base taxable income five per cent greater than the previous year, it added. "Some three-quarters of total corporate income taxes, million, was payable to the federal government, an increase of million or nine per cent -over the previous year income taxes payable to the provinces in 1971 totalled million of which milliori accrued to Ontario and the report said. "Taxable income climbed to billion and was 12 per cent higher than Statistics Canada said. "A faster rate of increase of federal income taxes, which ordinarily accompanies a period of rapid growth, was considerably moderated by the impact of two changes in the 1971 tax rates, both effective July 1 of that year." "These 'were the elimination of the three-per- cent federal surtax, announced in the June budget, and a corporate income tax reduction of seven per cent, announced in October as part of measures taken to increase it said. "It is estimated that the effect of these tax cuts was to reduce federal income taxes by more than million for corporations with fiscal years ending in it added. Lougheed queried on gas pipeline EDMONTON (CP) Premier Peter Lougheed said Monday it would not be appropriate for Alberta to endorse a specific application to the National Energy Board by any group seeking to build a MacKenzte valley natural gas pipeline. But he told the legislature the government supports a project to ship natural gas to southern markets provided that native rights and the environment are protected. The premier was responding to questions from Bob Clark, Social Credit House leader, asking if the government plans to endorse the application by Canadian Gas Arctic Study Ltd. to build a pipeline that would run through Alberta. The application will be made later this month. Mr. Lougheed added he has not seen the specific terms of the application Environment Minister Bill Yurko said the consortium has been advised that an environmental impact study would be necessary and that the province would have the final decision on the location of the pipeline.
