Only small change in July 8 ballot OTTAWA There'll be a small change in the black and white ballot used in the forthcoming general election but many people may not even notice. The redesigned before the Oct. election as part of broad Election Act will have slightly larger white circles in which voters make their marks for candidate preference. Chief Electoral Officer Jean-Marc Hamel says the circles on the 1972 ballot were a little too possibly creating problems for persons with poor eyesight. hope the larger circles will reduce quite substantially the number of spoiled The object of the new-type ballot is to have the white cir- the candidates' names and only free white space in which to make a mark. AII washed up Finance Minister Turner shows many expressions Budget bills in limbo By BUD JORGENSEN OTTAWA Virtually all the federal budget on which the government was defeated will not be Finance Minister John Turner said and the document becomes part of the Liberal party's election campaign platform. Sent into limbo are measures to extract an additional million in corporate tax much of it from the petroleum and mining industries. Also lost is the planned re- moval of the 12-per-cent sales tax on clothing and footwear plus larger personal income tax exemptions for low- earning citizens. smokers drinkers and buyers of big automobiles will get reprieve. Higher taxes on these items also have been shelved. the basis of the best constitutional advice I can it appears the budget has no Mr. Turner told a news conference. He said the government would reintroduce all the pro- posals in the budget if the gov- ernment is returned in the July 8 election. The issue of how best to fight inflation will be one of the main ones in the campaign. The Liberals say economic 'incentives to increase supply are needed while the Progressive Con- servatives favor controls to stop price rises. one of the clearest issues this country has had for some Turner said. In a statement released as the news conference Mr. Turner said all excise and income tax measures will not be implemented. MORE FOR BONDS One measure which will be implemented is a bonus plan to bring the yield of Canada Savings Bonds up to nine per cent. Traditional procedure has been for the revenue depart- ment to begin collecting at new tax rates announced in a budget and this budget was no exception. Mr. Turner said any extra tax money collected because of adjustments to lower rates between the time of the budget Monday night and 1p.m. Thursday would be refunded. Any money lost would be ignored. Prime Minister Trudeau had told reporters that the government intended to tell oil companies it appeared that a federal- provincial agreement to set petroleum product prices would remain in effect. The agreement establishes a two-price system for crude resulting in lower product prices. Progressive Con- servative Leader Robert Stanfield has pledged support of the deal if his party forms a government. Changes in tourist ex- amount of duty free goods that can be brought back from foreign not take effect. NOT ALL DEAD An announcement made in the budget that will be carried Mr. Turner said in re- sponse to a is a plan to ask mortgage lenders to ad- just down-payment require- ments so that mortgages granted on small down pay- ments will be confined to middle-and low-priced housing. It might be possible to make other changes proposed in the budget although the want of confidence motion passed by the House was on the he said. But would be con- trary to the will of Parliament to change taxes as proposed in that He said the document ries the weight and authority of the Liberal and he would campaign .on a statement similar to one made earlier by the prime minister. If the government is legislation proposed on income tax measures would be retroactive. Sales and excise tax proposals would become effective at the time new legislation was introduced. It would have made several changes to corporation most of which would have in- creased sharply the govern- ment's take from petroleum and mining companies.
