The .solenoid controls Ihe throttle opening at idle. The installations will be made al no cost to the car owner. The division said it has re- ceived 11 reports of bracket fail- ures, six of them involving stuck throlllcs. It said no acci- dents were reported as a result of Ihe failures. The division suggested that if the throttle slicks while Ihe car is in molion, Ihe drive should turn off the ignition while brak- ing lo slop the car. In Oshawo. Ont a spokesman for General Motors of Canada Ltd. said the company is recall- ing about Vegas although Canadian trailers have not re- ported throttle problems. I 111 salary j EDMONTON (Cl'l The of Albcnta ombudsman i George B. McClcllan be increased to from noi) a year by a bill to amend the Ombudsman Act given first reading in the legislature. Attorney General Merv Lcitch said Mr. McClellan's sal- ary will be increased to effective Jan. 1. 1971, and to SM.OUO a year effective Jan. 1972. Last month, the legislature approved the reappoinlment of I Mr. McClellau for a five-year period. i Mr. McClcllan, 6S, a former RCMP commissioner, was the first ombudsman appointed in Canada in 19G7. He has the task of investigating citizens' com- plaints against, unfair decisions by government agencies i The proposed amencim c n t s would also strengthen the role and position of the ombudsman by clarifying his right to ob- 1 lain government documents. OTTAWA (CPi The budget presented by Finance Minister John Turner i'i tlie Commons Monday pinpointed some ''rough edges" lhal have turned up in the government's revised version of the Income Tax Act. While lisling sonic immediate steps to counter what he called anomalies and instances of tho new tax law ''working in unin- tended Mr. Turner said he intends In keep a close eye on the workings of the new law and will make changes whcro necessary. The tax reform legislation, as (he government calls it, took cf- feet last Jan. 1 after rocky pas- sage through the Commons llmt ended just before the New Year. The government imposed a time limit on House debate to get it through. One of Ihe main provisions in the new tax law was introduc- tion of a tax on capital gains for the first time. The tax is as- sessed on half of any such gain. This tax and how it might af- fect charitable donations was the spur for one change. Despite an increase in deduct- ible charitable donations to 211 per cent of annual income from 10 per cent, Mr. Turner said, "there seems to be a general fear that gifts and bequests of appreciated property will be discouraged" where it is deemed that the gains tax should apply. He announced a relaxation in one the property to be given is not a substitute tor money, as in the case of land donated to a camp or hospital or art works given to a mu- seum. The persons making the dona- tion would be allowed to value the donation for lax purposes at any amount between its actual cost and its fair market value. Mr. Turner also said any sueh bequest would be considered to have been made during the tax year in which a donor died, al- lowing the value of the gift to be deducted in that year, up to the 20-per-cent limit. The gains tax applies at death of a taxpayer and Mr. Turner announced a change to make it easier for an estate to meet this. Taxes due in such an instance may be paid in six equal annual ir.sfalincuts instead of an imme- diate lump sum, the minister said. This should avoid some hardships, such as having to sell a chunk of the estate to pay the taxman. The budget contained simpli- fied procedures tor both individ- uals paid the previous year. Where there was a lax-rate change, a simple adjustment to la.sl year's taxes would he stipulated by regulation.

This .should end some ''tedious calculations" while still meeting Die fiscal obliga- tions. Another change is for damage awards held [or children pend- ing maturity. As the law stands, Mr. Turner said, tax treatment o[ income from damage awards is unclear. Income from trust funds set up for a child who received a damage Turner mentioned children wilh birth defects clue to the moth- er's use of the tranquillizer fhal- he subject, to fax. WILL BE CIMMiEU This was undesirable and the law would be changed to make such income exempt from tax until the recipient reached ago 21. Mr. Turner also mentioned an "unintended loophole" that has cropped up whore, within a cor- porate group, business income can listed as investmerA in- come to take advantage of a half Lax refund available for certain forms of investment. An amendment is coming which will close Mils off and assure, in the 1973 fax year, that business income is so listed, the minister said. Pending completion of a gov- ernment review, Mr. Turner an- nounced postponement until 1975 of proposed tax treatment of in- come earned abroad by Canadi- ans. They originally were to go into effect in 1973. After meetings with con- cerned taxpayers, Mr. Turner said he has been persuaded that as drafted, the rules "may pro- duce unintended results in par- ticular The postpone- ment would allow a complete review and lime to ensure there is no interference with the "suc- cess1 of our exporters, our Cana- dian-based multinational corpo- rations and our international en- trepreneurs The minister also concluded some rules governing a tax- payer who leaves Canada may be "too harsh." As written, the law either as- sesses a capital gains tax when the pci-son leaves, as though he had sold all his Canadian prop- erty, or allows him to decide to pay the Canadian tax only when lie actually disposes of the prop- erty. But in this latter case, when he docs sell he must report his income for that year as if he had continued to be a Canadian resident. This would he changed to allow a leaving resident to pay assessed taxes in six equal an- nual payments as long as he posted sufficient security. Or he could list his property as taxa- ble Canadian properly and, when he sold it, pay on the ac- tual gain realized. In order not to discourage for- eigners wilh valuable skills from working in Canada for short periods, Mr. Turner also said anyone who has not been a Canadian resident for more than 35 mcnlhs over fbe pre- vious 10 years will be exempt from any accrued gains on property he owned when he came to Canada. Except where he specified dif- ferent dates, all changes ara effective immediately, Mr. Turner said.
