Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta FEIDAY, MAY THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD PAGE THREE HOW DOMINION AND ONTARIO TAX DIVISION OFFERS COMPARE OTTAWA, May experts connected the Domin- ion-Provincial conference today comparing Ontario's offer for straightening cut the tax deadlock with the Dominion's offer. terday Ontario's proposal would cost the Dominion roughly more than under she offer Prime Minister Mackenzie King made on Monday and which has since been maintained by Domiriion spokes- rc en- Experts said the difference in the per caoita subsidy between the two proposals was not great.

Toe Dominion offered to scare these fields if the provinces could devise some to take over other Dominion commitments so the Do- minion would not actually be out of pocket. Many of the provinces claim they prefer to leave the Dominion col- lecting its gasoline tax. Some of them are taxing gasoline ten cents a gallon and could not add another three cents if the Dominion vacated the field. Then the provinces do not tax farmers for the gasoline they use for their farm machinery. but the Dominion levies its tax on this use.

AS pointed out in yesterday's column, both Pales- tine and p-gypi are kev positions in this life-line, and cunent develop- ments certainly raise the question of how long they iviil remain within England's zone of influence. Thus Libya becomes a prize without price because it is so strategically situat- ed on the Mediterranean as to make an invaluable point em- phasized by the manoeuvres of both Britain and Russia to secure a hold there. WORTH MORE THAN GOLD The Libyan question presents a tough problem, for the Paris parley. As a base this colony is worth more to either England or Russia than as though the sands of its endless deserts were of pure gold. Eoth these powers have made bids trusteeships. Uncle Sain, taking the role of a Solomon, has proposed 10-year trusteeship under the Unit- ed Nations and then complete in- dependence. Libya was Mussolini's colonial Garden of Eden. Much of the area along the coast is fertile, and there he built niedel colonies for Italian farmers, driving away the unfortunate Senoussi who had held the lands for centuries. Thous- ands of the natives were pushed back into the terrible deserts to the south where they perished by thousands.
