ONLY Tax bill goes TORONTO (CP) Finance Minister John Turner reiterated Tuesday night the government will proceed with legislation to implement his budget, reducing taxes on manufacturers and processors. He told the Canadian Tax Foundation that the bill, in- troduced after the budget last May 8 but not passed by the time Parliament was dissolved for the Oct. 30 general election, will be "back on the order pa- per when Parliament returns to work" Jan. 4. There are important provi- sions in the bill for personal tax changes, as well as the new re- duced rates of tax for manufac- turers and processors which are to take effect Jan. 1, Mr. Turner said. Among the personal tax changes are: the special in- come exemption for blind, dis- abled and all other persons aged 65 and older to a year from of a month tax deduction for full- time students undertaking post- secondary education or train- ing. the medical care and treatment expenses which qualify for tax deductions to in- clude the full-time pay of an at- tendant to care for the tax- payer, and the cost of com- mercial transport services to and from a hospital, clinic or doctor's office for treatment more than 25 miles from a tax- payer's home. Mr. Turner, however, devoted most of his speech to the con- ference, attended mainly by corporation tax lawyers and ac- countants, to the budget changes affecting manufac- turing and processing firms. NINE-PER-CENT CUT For manufacturers and proc- essors, the top rate of corpo- ration tax is to be reduced to 40 per cent from 49 per cent, effec- tive Jan. 1, as an incentive to them to expand and create more jobs. The rate for small businesses in the manufacturing and processing field will be cut to 20 per cent from 25. But this reduction is to apply only to the manufacturing and processing profits to firms which may have wider activi- ties than that, including mar- keting, distribution and similar activities. New RCMP constables at airports OTTAWA (CP) The RCMP is stepping up a program of hir- ing special constables to in- crease security at airports, Commissioner W. L. Higgitt said Tuesday night. In an interview, Mr. Higgitt said the special constables do not get the same intense train- ing given a normal RCMP re- cruit and they are used mainly to patrol airports. He said use of these special constables has gone on for sev- eral years with varying num- bers attached to the force as re- quired. He noted the rapid growth of airports has created a need for more special constables and said the force is looking for 50 or 60 more. Referendum on games ruled out MONTREAL (CP) Mayor Jean Drapeau of Montreal said Tuesday it is already too late to hold a referendum on whether or not to hold the 1976 Olympic Games here.

(AP Wirephoto) ministers attack Ottawa VICTORIA (CP) I be a method whereby each welfare ministers attacked the federal government Tuesday for initiating special social service programs and then leaving it up to the provinces to maintain them. Ministers from British Colum- bia, Ontario, Saskatchewan and Manitoba attending the final day of a two-day conference ex- pressed their dissatisfaction with the federal government for setting up make-work plans like Opportunities For Youth (OFY) and the Local Initiatives Pro- gram (LIP) without first con- sulting the provinces. "Ottawa provides the seed money and then asks the prov- ince to continue watering the said Welfare Minister Rene Toupin of Manitoba. Mr. Toupin also suggested that Ottawa begin to share costs of projects that create jobs and pick up 100 per cent of the costs of staffing services that help people on welfare. Ontario Minister Rene Bru- nelle said his province spent million to establish 62 day-care centres last year and did not get a penny from Ottawa. He said the centres created em- ployment and filled a social need and urged the federal gov- ernment to participate in the costs of such projects. Alex Taylor, Saskatchewan minister of welfare, said a job creation program could be com- bined with social service needs. He also complained about the tendency of the federal govern- ment to initiate a new program and then leave the province with 100 per cent of the costs.

Rehabilitation Minister Nor- man Levi of British Columbia said he has been surprised at the lack of communication with the federal government over such programs as LIP or OFY. "I never realized how lar away Ottawa he said. "By the time one of their ideas gets lo us we're in a different space and want to do something else." Mr. Levi referred to the fed- government's latest which is intended to e r a 1 scheme motivate senior citizens, New Horizons. Teachers ratify pact CALGARY (CP) Teachers in the Bow Valley negotiation area ratified Tuesday an agree- ment with the seven rural school boards in the region. The contract begins Jan. 1 and gives the 620 instructors an average wage increase of 7.1 per cent. Last year, the government used binding arbitration to set- tle a three week strike over wages which kept stu- dents out of school. Wages now range from about to annually, de- pending on experience, training and administrative responsibil- ity. The school boards involved are the countries of Wheatland and Moimtainview, school divi- sions of Three Hills and Drum- heller Valley and local boards in Banff, Canmore and Hanna. They are east, north and west of Calgary. Alberta housing official cpiits EDMONTON (CP) B. R.

Executive-director since 1967, he said he plans to enter the field of housing and urban de- velopment with his own com- pany. No successor was named. Canada need not worry over pollution fund cut WASHINGTON (CP) The Nixon administration Tuesday lopped more than half the money of an authorization ap- proved by Congress for c o n- struction of municipal waste- treatment facilities during the coming two fiscal years. But a senior official of the Environmental Protection Ad- ministration (EPA) insisted that the cuts will not affect the United States government's "solemn pledge" to Canada to help clean up pollution in the Great Lakes. EPA administrator William Ruckelshaus told a news confer- ence the government will re- lease billion in fiscal 1973 for the facilities, 40 per cent of what Congress authorized, and billion in fiscal 1974' or 50 per cent of the congressional authorization. Asked later about concern ex- pressed by Ottawa and the On- tario government that proposed U.S. spending would not be suf- ficient for the Great Lakes cleanup, Fitzhugh Green. EPA's director of international affairs, said: "Mr. Ruckelshaus' position on this is fundamental and un- cave-in-able. The agree- ment is going to be honored by this side." He said there is "nothing to be concerned about" in Canada. President Nixon had given a solemn pledge when he signed the Great Lakes treaty in Ot- tawa last spring. The federal Water Pollution Control Act was passed by Con- gress Oct. 1C over Nixon's veto. Nixon had tried to block the bill, authorizing about bil- lion for waste treatment during a three-year period, because he believed it was inflationary. In lu's letter to Ruckelshaus, Nixon recalled that "I stated Trudeau checks on EEC entry OTTAWA (CP) With Brit- ain's entry into the European Economic Community (EEC) less than a month away, Prime Minister Trudeau will fly to London this weekend for one last reiteration of Canada's eco- nomic concerns about the move. He also will brief Prime Min- ister Edward Heath about Can- ada's position regarding mem- bership on a supervisory com- mission in Vietnam. Mr. Trudeau will have lunch with the Queen in Windsor Castle Monday. Officials said Tuesday that Mr. Trudeau's London visit was being planned prior to the Oct. 30 general election because "we would be remiss" if Canada did not remind Britain about its concerns before that country joined the EEC, with far-reach- ing effects on traditional trad- ing patterns. "Canada has to be sure its in- terests are Mr. Trudeau told reporters Tues- day. He said the EEC is an evolving institution and "it is important that we remain in constant contact." So far as flha Vietnam ques- tion is concerned, he wanted Mr. Heath to "know our posi- tion" before the British prime minister visits Washington later next month. SETS CONDITIONS Canada has laid down several conditions that must be met be- fore agreeing to serve on any supervisory commission which may be established if and when a ceasefire is reached. The con- ditions include establishment of a "high authority" to which the commission can report, free- dom of movement, and an in- vitation volved. from all parties in- Officials close to a.m. to 6 p.m.; Kingsgnle, n.C.; 24 hours; I'orlhill Ilykcrls fl a.m. to midnight; Chief Mountain closed; Wildlwrse, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
