Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 27, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta tax losing Although the federal structure and the government' plan to reform it has its shzrc of opponents, by far the nan significant tax discontent if. t, the provincial and levels. Specifically, the prt.r erfy tax has come under particularly with respect lo riu education tax which is tic largest component of the It is in this area, more u--gently than in the federal ta? system, that reform is lung overdue and cannot wait Ion; government deliberation. DEEPLY RESENTED The taxes levied to provincial and municipal costs are no longer K cepted by the taxpayer, er the rural fanner or home owning surbanite. the tax system is simple, easily understood, and deeply resented. The taxpayer has his back up. He simply cannot how the fact that he a home, regardless of fcow much he owes against it, nr I'm fact that he owns a farm, rt-gardless of its profitability lack thereof, gives him a grei.i-er ability to finance educatior. costs than the apartment dweii-er or businessman whose profits are high but whose land uses are low. There is strong evidence to support the property owner's ease. When property taxes were mginally introduced, the was that the levies were designed to cover the cost of government services to a( grate, perhaps to another prov ince, or country, where he wil pay his taxes and make his contribution to the cultural inc social environment. In those communities nnc provinces where there is an annual net loss of young people educated through taxes levied on property owners, the discontent is most acute. Taxpayers argue that in most cases they derive little benefit from the taxes they pay to educate people who subsequently move to other provinces. They are ready to do battle. It serves no useful for municipal and provincial governments to attempt partial relief or disguise the education taxes through fisca gimmickry. The problem will only be solved in this area of taxation when all levels of government recognize both that property ownership is no longer a relevant measurement of one's ability to pay taxes, and that education is a nationa affair and should be financed through a national, not a local tax system. (Mr. Aspcr Is a Winnipeg 1 jilfejJP" quotations Vancouver, Calgary, tax Q By T. II. ASPER Have tha limits of taxpay I ers' patience been reachec i This question is actually bein i considered seriously, thoug 7 privately, by some politica figures responsible for main tabling a balance between gov eminent taxing and spendin necessities. There's no doubt that publi awareness of every govern ment move in the spending am taxing area has never bee more acute, particularly at th provincial and municipa levels. There's good reason fo the growing concern. Fo example, many homeowner are now paying more in mu nicipal and provincial propert tax than they pay in Federa and Provincial income taxes There is growing anger in thi particular tax group whos members argue, often with convincing logic, that they are paying more in taxes than oth ers whose ability to pay, pro portionately, is much greater. Indeed, signs of taxpayer re sistance are unmistakable. A few months ago, in reaction to proposed federal changes in the tax system respecting smal business, Canada witnessed a substantial and often militan rejection of the tax white paper plan by thousands of operators of small business. That resulted in the formation of a permanent tax watchdog under the name, the Canadian Council for Fair Taxation. The Council, whether or nol on.e accepts its views, has been effective in resisting increased taxes for its members. One ought not to dismiss lightly the fury with which an economic group in society will defend itself when it feels threatened with extinction through government action, taxation and otherwise. The same instinct for self-preservation seems to have motivated the small businessman of Poujadist persuasion in France a few years ago when they physically, violently and successfully resisted tax increases. REFUSED TO PAY Only a few weeks ago, many Ontario farmers rejected the provincial tax system by refusing to pay taxes on their land, arguing that the levies were archaic and unjust. The Ontario government has since made conciliatory gestures and that particular fire seems to be under control. Manitoba farmers, encouraged by the success of their Ontario counterparts, are now being exhorted by some spokesmen, to repeat that reaction by withholding their proper tax. In Ste. Ttes, Manitoba, a pro vincial constituency which is threatened with not having a member in the next session of the Manitoba legislature, because of the provincial government's reluctance to call a by-election to fill the vacancy, some activists are calling for a tax strike on the footing that there can be no taxation' without by Doherty, Roadhouse and McCuaig) LAST BID OR SALE a.m. Quotes) a.m. Quotes) a.m. Quotes) WESTERN OILS Inter Steel 7.37Vi Invest Gr 9.70 10.5 Almlnex 5.95 Jeff Uke 9.12Va Invesl Mutual 5.C Asamera 1J.25 Joutel 1.06 105 Vent 3.30 Market dip frac TORONTO (CP) Price, were mixed to fractions lower in active mid-mommi trading today at the Toronto stock market.
