Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 1, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Dateline Alberta Recount called off EDMONTON (CP) A can- didate badly beaten in the recent race for reeve of Strathcona County said Thurs- day he has been denied the right to prove there were no irregularities in balloting. Art Leahy, who finished fourth in a race of five can- didates won by the new reeve, Tom Reed, asked for a recount which began Wednes- day but he called it off after only six of ballots had been counted. He said he was unable to find out whether the number of ballots tallied with the number of forms signed by voters declaring they were en- titled to vote. County officials said they were advised by a lawyer not to provide the forms or the poll book because it would violate a citizen's right to a secret ballot. 'Height of frustration' EDMONTON (CP) NFU regional co-ordinator Bill Dascavich says the protest calf slaughter by Quebec farmers this week reflects the "height of frustration" which has led farmers to commit what may appear to be irrational behavior. "Farmers are reacting to lack of government programs that would stabilize their in- comes and assure them a return for their cost of produc- tion, labor, and Mr. Dascavich said in a prepared release. He said he could not con- done the protest slaughter, although he recognized the need for shock tactics to draw government attention to dis- tressed cattle prices. Datapac plans outlined EDMONTON (CP) Plans for a new nationwide network for data communications, called Datapac, were outlined Thursday by Alberta Govern- ment Telephones (ACT) and the Trans-Canada Telephone System. "The system has the capability of connecting machine to machine com- parable to the telephone network, which connects person to J. W. Dodds, ACT general manager, said in a prepared release. Initially the network will provide services involving brief question and answer transactions with a computer. In 1976, when the system is fully developed, real estate buying, banking transactions, and car renting services are a few possible areas that may make use of the network, he said. Denticare bill tabled EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta legislature was urged Tuesday to endorse the princi- ple of non compulsory Den- ticare. but no decision was made and the issue fell to the bottom of the order paper. George Ho Lem (SC Calgary McCall) proposed that the Denticare program be operated in conjunction wilh the Alberta Health Care Commission UNITED MOTORS CO. LTD.

Provincial spending is proj- ected to rise by 21.1 per cent during the 1974-75 fiscal year while the estimated increase in revenue is 19.8 per cent, Statistics Canada said in its annual survey of provincial budgets tabled in legislatures earlier this year. The statistical agency has developed what it calls a "financial management system" to present balance sheets of the various govern- ment levels, the system attempts to account for the fact that governments have different budget methods. Included in the Statistics Canada analysis are both operating expenditures and spending on capital projects, such a construction of buildings and highways. Not included are the operations of "government such as Crown corporations and utilities. Six provinces are responsi- ble for the combined deficit of about billion; two have close to balanced budgets; and two are in a comfortable surplus position. The two provinces with comfortable surpluses were: Quebec, revenue of billion, spending of billion, surplus of million; and Alberta, revenue of billion, spending of billion, surplus of million. Total spending by the 10 provinces for the current fiscal year, which ends March 31, is projected at billion. Total revenue pro- jected is billion. BUDGET DUE The federal government has yet to table a it is due within three but a guide to the level of federal spending for the current fiscal year is provided by the May 6 budget on which the govern- ment was defeated. That one called for budgetary spending of billion and projected revenue nt billion. Ontario had the largest proj- ected deficit by Statistics Can- ada accounting methods and Quebec had the largest sur- plus. The six deficit provinces were: Newfoundland, revenue of million, spending of S751 million, deficit of million; Nova Scotia, revenue of million, spending of million, deficit of million: New Brunswick, revenue of million, spending of million, deficit of million; Ontario. revenue of billion, spending of billion, deficit of million; Manitoba, revenue of billion, spending of j billion, deficit of billion; j and Saskatchewan, revenue of S944 million, spending of million, deficit of million. The two with a near- balanced budget were- Prince Edward Island, revenue of 5156 million and spending of million: and British Columbia, revenue of billion and spending of billion Kaiser Ltd. get price increase VANCOUVER
