Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 22, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta luesday, May 22, 1973 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 15 Ottawa has reached 'limit' money By STEWART MACLEOD OTTAWA prov- says a federal official, "obviously want to push us to the limit in terms of getting revenue. "Well, we've reached that limit. That's He was talking abut the fed- eral offer to restructure health- care costs, giving the provinces more flexibility along with a greater transfer of funds. At first glance it is a complex scheme, geared to the gross na- tional prod'Jct, involving the transfer of income tax points and excise taxes. A few wesks ago, it was given the cold shoulder by provincial health and finance ministers, many of w'ism didn't have time to study all the implications when it was presented to a fed- eral-provincial conference by Health Minister Marc Lalon-da and -Finance Minister John Turner. Next week it falls into the lap of provincial presniers, who will spend three days meeting here with Prime Minister Trudeau. Despite ths earlier reaction, federal officials are surprisngly optimistic the scheme will be salvaged. Those officials say they are getting the impression through various ccmmunicatiuns thst the provinces, on closer exam- ination, are warming to the pro- posal. The premiers, unlike the health ministers a few weeks ago, will come to the three-day conference fully familiar with ths proposed program. Differing from many other federal propositions, this ap- pears to be one case in which Ottawa will not go to great lengths to salvage an accom- modation. Since the new scheme would cost the federal treasury an additional bil- lion over the next five years, of- ficials say the existing shared- ccst arrangement "looks more attractive every day." So far as increasing the fed- eral contribution goes, says one official, "this is the end of the road." The only room for ac- commodation is in the techni- calities. The financing of health pro- grams, second item on the con- fsrence agenda, appears to be ths only area of controversy. The federal attitude is that Ot- tawa can afford to adopt a stiff stance, particularly from a po- litical point of view. The provinces have been ask- ing for more flexibility and more money and this, in ths view of officials here, is what the federal government is offer- ing. Even if confrontations de- velop over this issue, it almost certainly will be overshadowed by ether more agreeable ac- complishments. For instance, the first item on the agenda, a review of the new proposed social-security system, is clearly destined to produce provincial praises, since the new federal scheme has been hailed enthusiastically. There can scarcely be any flare-ups over the question of regional economic development, because Regional Expansion Minister Don Jamieson is nego- tiating villh the provinces to- ward decentralization of bis de- partmer.t This, generally, is what the provinces want and the conference is unlikely to disrupt current discussions. Nine provinces have sug- gested a discussion of the econ- omy, ar.d the federal govern- ment is delighted with the pros- pect. Finance Minister Turner is said to be preparing a higlily- cplimistic report en the eco- nomic cutlook, clouded only by continuing concern over in- flE'.icn. The way some officials see it, thsre are few areas in which the federal government can get sragged politically next week.
