Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 1, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta -Friday, May 1, 1970 THl LETHBRIDGE HERALD 25 No Tax Changes In NDP Budget WINNIPEG (CP) Mani- toba's New Democratic Party government Thursday brought down a budget for the 1970-71 fiscal year with no major tax changes, but the government promised a thorough review of the province's sales tax. Tire budget, introduced by Fi- nance Minister Saul Chemiack, predicted a small surplus of for the 1970-71 fiscal year with estimated revenues of exceeding projected expenditures of Mr. Cherniack said the five- per-cent retail sales tax, intro- duced by the Conservative gov- ernment in 1967, is being studied with a view to bringing it "as closely as possible in line with the ability-to-pay princi- ple." "We h'ave been giving particu- lar attention to the need for off- setting the impact of all taxa- tion on lower-income groups, in- cluding the sales he said. Later at a news conference, he indicated the sales tax changes will probably be intro- duced in 1971. TAX CHANGE MINOR The only tax adjustment was a minor unspecified change in the gasoline tax to "lift the bur- den of this levy from commer- cial fishermen and trappers." For the 1969-70 fiscal year ended March 31, Mr. Cherniack estimated expenditures at and revenues of leaving a surplus of about Submit Low Bid On Radar Site Near Conrad GREAT FALLS, MONT. (AP) Watson Construction Co., of Minneapolis, Minn, sub- mitted the apparent low of the seven bids on construction of a Safeguard anti-balEstic missile system radar site near Conrad, Mont. The low bid was Bids now have to be reviewed by the Army Corps of En- gineers before awarding. Additional expenditures o f for the new fiscal year which began April 1 will be covered largely by increased returns under existing personal and corporation income taxes and various provincial levies, including the retail sales tax. The NDP's first budget, brought down last fall after Pre- mier Ed Schroyer's forces upset the Conservatives in a general election, increased the prov- ince's share of personal and corporation income tax by 18 po- cent, effective Jan. 1, to compensate for reduced medi- cal care premiums. It is estimated these two sources will bring in revenue in the new fiscal year, compared with for 1969-10. Brief Warns Against Raise In Middle-Income Tax Rate OTTAWA (CP) The Cana- dian Construction Association said Thursday the government may encourage'an exodus of key construction workers to the Un- ited Slates if it raises middle- income tax rate in Canada. In briefs prepared for the New Hiring Policy Announced EDMONTON (CP) Canada Manpower centres in Alberta will; be responsible for filling vacant clerical positions in pro- vincial government offices ef- fective June 1, it was an- nounced Thursday. Ray Speaker, social develop- ment minister, said the new program will give all Albertans equal access to government po- sitions. There are 15 regional Canada Manpower offices throughout the province. Hiring for clerical positions now involves the director of the government's regional of- fice and head personnel office in Edmonton. The program will eventually be a saving to taxpayers be- cause there will be no overlap of federal and provincial ser- vices, Mr. Speaker said. Commons and Senate commit- tees studying Finance' Minister Edgar Benson's white paper proposals for tax change, the association also calls for the ab- olition of estate and gift taxes when the new income tax plan goes into effect. Construction industry person- nel have "above-average mobil- ity in and there now is a shortage of trained construction workers in the United States, the brief says. Wages and salaries in general were appreciably higher, and taxes lower in the U.S. than in Canada, and a good many Ca- nadian workers have emigrated. The white paper's plan to raise taxes on incomes of the to income group "is viewed with particu- lar concern in that it would in- crease further the existing dif- ferential in income after taxes, and encourage more construc- tion personnel to the association said. LARGEST INDUSTRY Construction now is Canada's largest industry, with an esti- mated output of this year. The association of construc- tion employers said it had called last year for no action on new estate and gift taxes until there was general income tax revision. Now, it said, estate and gift taxes cannot be ex- cluded from Parliament's study of income tax rates. "Construction companies are typically family or closely-held firms, Incorporated, short on liquid assets, and dependent upon their own resources for capital expansion and business says a letter signed by R. G. Sauriders of Vancouver, association president. These facts, along with the mobility of construction labor, should be kept in mind when studying the tax change propos- als, the letter adds. U.S. Spaceman's Son Injured STANFORD, Calif. (AP) A rock-throwing anti-Vietnam war protest was broken up by tear gas today at Stanford Univer- sity. Among the injured was a former astronaut's son who uni- versity officials said was trying to prevent violence. Walter Schirra III, 18, a mem- ber of the conservative Free Campus Movement, was taken to hospital with bruises and for observation. A spokesman for the group said the Inglewood, Calif., soph- omore was recovering from a broken ankle and was unable to escape youths swinging clubs in an area apart from the main demonstration. Young Schirra is the son of Walter M. Schirra Jr., who or- bited the earth in 1962 and was one of four Gemini astronauts who made the first manned space rendezvous in 1965. A group ranging from 100 to 300 persons smashed windows and pelted police. AKE YOUR MOVE.
