Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 29, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta kBirwiwtiB IWIALU Welfare council likes effort on social security proposals OTTAWA The Na- tional Council of Welfare has nodded approvingly at the general direction the govern- ment has taken in its working paper on social security. the council sayt in a brief released today that serious shortcomings still re- main in social security policy. It suggests that working pa- per proposals on minimum in- come may do no more than set levels of destitu- It also says that the rich may continue to benefit more than the poor from family al- lowance provisions. The brief also criticizes ad- ministration of some commu- nity employment programs and unemployment and man- power training efforts. The council is a federally- appointed advisory body com- posed largely of welfare and poor people's representatives and voluntary agency workers. It was commenting on the federal social security paper which outlined possible income supplement and employment plans. federal paper is being discussed with the provinces. The first result is family allowances legislation before Parliament designed to increase benefits to an average 120 a month from the current flat rate of Commenting on the govern- ment policy made public last the council reaction to it is tenta- tive to the extent that its broad propositions indicate a new and hopeful our reaction is It approved of the govern- ment aim to assure acceptable basic income for all the government paper did not set out what the income levels would be. The council questions the way social security payments are distributed among Canadians. The total net cost of family allowances payment will be billion annually when the current legislation is approved. Another million is provided through family deductions for income the council said. The council suggested that the impact of the two measures is to increase benefits as income increases. By removing the children's deduction from the Income Tax Act and putting this million into the family allowances the government could raise benefits to an average a child monthly from 919. This would start helping the poor. The council said that as the new family benefits will be the provinces will gain million annually. Would they use this money to increase social assistance aid or for purposes unrelated to the needs of It applauds government in- come supplement proposals concern about i that single people I childless couples less than 35 years old might be ex- cluded. Unemployment was highest among the young. The council also backs a guaranteed annual income for the aged and those who cannot be employed. The brief also suggests ty- ing social security measures such as old age pensions to the annual increase in the average Canadian's income. This aver- age income had risen 8.6 per cent in 1871.

TOYOTA TRAVEL CENTRE plans to curtail its regular-and intermediate-size model lines next month. Watching the scramble from the a little too high and dry for their are the importers of small Japanese and German cars Mainly because of inter- national currency their share of the Canadian car market has been trimmed month by month. But the importers haven't called it quits. Hiraki president of Vancouver-based Nissan Automobile importers of Japan's Datsun know what I'm doing. I sit back and watch the com- petition. I learn from their successes and I learn from their mistakes. And they do make mistakes. North American manufacturers are putting out too many types of small cars. They're competing with them- so their sales gains are at the expense of their other Imports used to be cheaper than comparable North American-built cars and they had a reputation for superior engineering and construction. But with currency import prices became a liability. Volkswagen's basic 1974 Beetle was increased 17 per cent or in price Toyota and Datsun both added about 10 per cent to their price tags. The North American manu- facturers are also claiming improved improved reliability and quality of their own cars. The import share of the Canadian car market fell to 187 per cent by the end of September from 23.3 per cent at the start of the year. The only import showing a gain in registrations was Japan's up to from Others showed slight declines in new-car to Datsun to and Volkswagen to is in trouble because it stayed with one model too says Mr. Miki. He is confident Nissan's growth pattern can be maintained by limiting its range of Datsuns to three basic an economy high-performance sports model and in- termediate luxury car. Henry manager of corporate relations for Volkswagen said his company has been short of cars this year because of heavy demands in other countries.
