Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 14, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY, MAY 14; 1S46 THE LETHBRTDGE HERALD PAGE THREE DREW COM PLAINS ABOUT GARSON: WILLING TO RESUM CONFERENCE TORONTO.'May Drew of Ontario today proclaimed his government's willingness to re- sume the Dominion-provincial con- ference and accused Premier Gar- son of Manitoba of misrepresenting the reasons for its adjournment 11 tiavs ago. In an address nrepared for deliv- ery io the Progressive Conservative Business Men's Club ihe_ premier asserted Ontario will cot be a party 10 the confused and "unjust system of isultiole taxation" proposed by the Dominion. But he added that agreement can be reached between Dominion and provinces and bis government is eagerly awaiting the call for its resumption. Ee referred to a statement by Premier Garson that- "it is calami- tous for Canada that the Ontario and Quebec governments couM not have continued with those of the other seven provinces ia the nego- tiation of a compromise." and de- clared: "The impression conveyed by those words of the oremier of Mani- toba is without, foundation. The Ontario government continued at all limes to urge the necessity for agreement." The conference was not at an end. It was adjourned sine die to meet at the call of the Dominion "overnrnent and "the government of every province has the right to expect; "thai, the conference will be reconvened when the Dominion gov- ernment has had the opportunity to consider the matter further." There had been an effort to con- vev the impression that all tibe provinces but Ontario and Quebec were readv to sign an agreement with the Dominion on the latter's terms. -That is untrue. Several provinces were as emphatic in asserting the very principles that Ontario put forward and there was no indication they had any inten- tion of abandoning their position." PREMIER CARSON WINNIPEG, May Stuart Gsrsoa of Manitoba said to- day the entire basis of democratic government in Canada would ss shaken if the Dominion and prov- inces are unable to devise new tax structure enabling the latter to provide the services for which they are constitutionally responsible. Soeaking to the young men's sec- tion of the WinniDeg Board of Trade. Mr. Carson said most of the provinces would be unable to carry on financialiv for any length of time unless some adjustments were made- IE 'K'as Slst dress since his return from the Do- minion-provincial conference at Ot- tawa. "Let no one suppose that failais to reach a new agreement means 'that Canada retains her efficient wartime tax structure, or that the will continue to enjoy their nresent stable he warned. "It means that we revert, EQt to the stability of the wartime tax sustjension agreements, but to the jungle of uncertainty- of the 1930s." The long-term, results of failure at Ottawa would be "even more predicted. "In tcaay's world we may be sure that we shall encounter severe eco- nomic difficulties, and that Cana- dian citizens will seek governmental action to relieve the human dis- tress caused by economic deadlock, or to break up that deadlock itself." PROVINCES LACK MONEY The nature of the deadlock was that failing a new tax strucrure in Canada, a majority of the. provinces would find it, impossible to carry out their constitutional responsibili- ties to their ceople because, while thev had the nower. they lacked the" money. On tne other hand the Dominion" could not act either in providing all necessary services, be- cause it had the money but not the power. "This truth will appear as a shameless dodging of responsibilitj by both provincial and Dominioi governments, and therefore not merely as a defect in our federa system of government, but as a major shortcoming of free demo- cratic government itself. "The enemies of democracy them- selves could not devise an argument against it more persuasive than the pre-itar condition of governmental paralvsis and frustration which we will restore and perpetuate Jf we provide nothing to replace the ex- piring wartime W-X suspension agreements and thereby leave the Canadian provinces in the relation- ship with the Dominion government which proved as completely unsat- isfaciorv and inadequate in the 1930s." Announcement on Dairy Prices On Thursday TORONTO. May of a federal cabinet announcement Thursda v concerning prices and sub- for Che whole Canadian dairy ndustry was made Monday by Ag- riculture Minister Gardiner. Harry Scott, president of the On- tario Concentrated Milk Producers" Association, end P. Mcimyre, presi- dent of the Ontario Whole Miik Producers' League, said they were informed by Mr. Gardiner that the Dominion cabinet would make an overall decision concerning prices and subsidies for butter, cheese, manufactured Quid milk. Will Robins Bring Luck? OTTAWA. May Benny Licari. who is to be married June 1. mav have to wait a few days to occupy the home his faiher is giv- ing hun for a wedding present: but in return he will have the promise of good luck from robins. While the house was under con- stmcricn a robin established her nest in the dining room. Then four eggs apneared. Frank Licari. father of the "prosuective groom, recalled an adage about good luck smiling en the man whose home attracts a robin, so work on the dining room was temtiorarily haired. A game warden visited the house Mondav and carefully shifted the nest to" a scecially-constructed sheli on a nearbS' tree. Now work on the dining room will go on. Nazi Literature Memorials to Go BERLIN. May Al- lied control authority ordered the destruction of German military and Nazi memorials and masses of fas- cist and militaristic literature. The order -on literaiure, passed by the authority's co-ordinating committee, provided for a purge "to eradicate in all forms fascist, mili- tarist and anti-democratic ideas in Germanv through confiscation am destruction of Nazi literature and other media of propaganda." An American public relations of- ficer gave this advance informatioi on details of the order, which will be published May 20: "Owners of circulating libraries bookshops and publishing houses all former state and municipal li- braries and heads of all universi- ties and schools must hand over to the military commandants all Nazi and military propaganda in their possession. "Textbooks, magazines, news- paper Sies and films containing Naz racial theories and other propa- ganda, as well as instructions, maps and diagrams used for military training of troops are included in the list of material to be surrender- ed for destruction. "Holders of the material. meisters and local authorities are responsible for complying with pro- visions of the order."

Britain make ef- fective the federal constitution en- acted by the British parliament hi 1935 but never pat into operation. That would provide a much greater degrees of autonomy and bring more Indians into the government. This of course wouldn't fill the bill for the by a long shot. They want absolute "independence. However, they do. recognize that there muss be an interim period of provisional government and it might be that the constitution of 1935 would furnish the necessary vehicle provided that the "idea was carried out with liberality and vision and an utter absence of red-tape. Establishment of a coalition pro- visional government would be radi- cal, and probably unique. Any poli- tical party which didn't wish to par- ticipate could stand aside and" the rest would carry on. If none of the parties was willing to take part, then at least Britain would have done all that could be expected of her and she would be free to govern India as she saw St. Of course objectors to such an idea can dig uri a thousand ob- stacles. The isn't orthodox! Certainly it isn't, but orthodoxy is a penny a ship-load these days when great countries are making drastic changes. Finance Minister Is Doctor of Laws HAMILTON. Oat.. May The conflict between the demand for higher wages and higher prices on the one hand and the demand on the other that the cost of liv- ing be stabilized is among the ex- traordinary riifSculaes faced by the Dominion government.

"Nothing during the war has been morfr difficult than the framing and administration of our stabilization policies. But the difficulties of the war period have been as nothing compared with the, difficulties of today. To add to these difficulties, a great many of our most compet- ent omcials have left or are leav- ing the goTf mmenc service."
