All of this fouuuirk is necessi- tated by Canadian lux rule which says [he interest, one pays on money which lie bor- rows lo make an investment which will produce Taxable in- come 'i.e. bond inter- est) is daHiL'tible. Trie interest he pays money used for personal or non-income produc- ing purposes 'i.e. mortgage in- terest on his personal home) isn't deductible. The effect of doing il the right way. in the.-c circum- stances, is. roughly speaking, to make tbe CSB interest a tax- free receipt. This, for th-'- -Sifl.- 000 income earm1; will bis annual return by about 4fl per cer.t enough to lick tbe inflationary lieirac'ion from making an ernment boii'l As most home mori.'iag 35 deductible should be in Omr.fla. too. Until that occurs, one i? hard-pressed to find a good reason for the average mortgaged Canadian to use his savings to buy gov- ernment bonds rather than re- duce his house mortise. PAYROLL CTION Lesson No. 2 applies to the hundreds of thousands of tax- payers who annually buy Can- ada savings bonds on the pay- roll deduction plan. In effect, their employer's bank lends them the money to buy the bond, charges them in- terest on tbe and allows them to pay off the principle and interest by payroll deduc- tion over a ono year period. This is a valid way of .-aving. except for ono aspect. Most em- ployees are never made aware of how much interest they've paid and that are entitled to claim that interest ;ts a tax deduction. In effect, they clip their first year's coupon, pay tax on it, but don't claim the deduction for the interest they've paid on the money they borrowed to buy the bond. Last year at this lime did 3 calculation which estimated that the federal and provincial governments annually collect several million dollars in extra tax revenue from taxpayers who didn't knrw of and exer- cise their right to claim the payroll interest, I'NriT.I) a'F'i (V.nada ha- i; may not abK1 lo sign a propped inter- national eonven-ion designed ID provide for vic- tints cf falling man-made i olijeci.s S-.

He also said i! is possible that no compensation would be paid at all. The Vancouver Liberal men- tioned what perhaps is UK main Canadian concern about tho convention is that it could cstah- lish a precedent that would ef- feet future international treaties. dealing with pollution of the sea i and In this area Canada has hard to establish that a country that causes the pollu- tion must also lie responsible for compensation paid to its vie- urns. MAY NOT SIGN St. Pierre said because d' the weakness of the outer space trcr.ty Canada may not sign it. The "conversion oa liability for damage caused by 1 launched into outer space." is expected to be approved later Uiis year by the 131-country General Assembly. After that it v ill ho opened for signatures and come effect when five countries have signed it. It now being discussed hi thj assembly's main political committee. St. Pierre said Can- ada v.ill abstain w'tKMi it comes up for a vote. The convention was drawn up largely by the Unked Stales and the Soviet Union It commits signatory countries who launch objects into space to pay repar- aticns to restore property dam- aged In1 ihase objects TO conditions which v.ould have ex- isted if the damage had not oc- curred." It provides, for arbitration in esse there is no agreement on i compcnssJion, but thai arbitra- tion is not binding. Tnat is one j cf the Canadian objections for it makes it possible for a victim to get insufficient compensation or 1 even at all. The only weapon provided to force a country to pay full compensa- tion is publk- opinion brought about, by widespread publicity SEE PUOTKCTION LACK St. Pierre said Canada un- able to persuade itself "that vic- tims, are adequately proter.ed if arbitration awards can be ig- nored by the state causing the damage." continue ;o believe that i states which are willing to ere- 1 ate risks, by launching objects inio .spare, should be v. illing to be hound by any deci.sicn by a fair system of in- arhiiranon." lie said Canada is pr.rticn- lariv concerned that the lack of over into jjilr-rnational agree- ment in the future concerning the environment and the law of I jbe Soviet Union nor the sea. the United Slates were happv Canada proposed an addition j this idea r.nri it was no; to tho conversion under which j included in the convcmion. countries could voluntarily say they mil be bound by arbitra- tion. i The Soviet Union is the train :'uuiifoui against binding arbitra- tion. KA1SR LKC.AL POINT The other Canadian objection is lack of mention in the con- vent ion that the law of the land j of the victim of a falling object will apply when determining compensation. Canadian officials give this example of could happen under the convention: A falling i object put into space by the So- j vie; Union could destroy a barn and the livestock of a Canadian farmer.
