Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 5, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Appeal Targets Climb By THE CANADIAN PRESS United Appeal campaigns are under way for another year across Canada, with major cit- ies seekinff more funds for their welfare and charitable organi- zations than before. A Cross-Canada Survey by The Canadian Press shows that only four of 26 areas holding campaigns this month are going after the same target figure as last year while one city aims for slightly less than in its 1969 campaign. All others surveyed have raised their sights. Two areas do not participate in the annual autumn campaign. One of these is the province of Newfoundland, where various charities do their collecting at different times during the year. The other is the city of Mon- treal, which holds its united charity drive in the spring.

Studded Tire Ban Mistake CALGARY (CP) Ontario's ban on studded tires is a mis- take, president J. D. Moore of Firestone Tire and Rubber Co. of Canada Ltd. said here. Research by the Rubber As- sociation of Canada showed the safety features of the tires, he said, and these findings were presented to the Ontario cabi- net.

FLUTE RENTALS ,50 PER MONTH MUSICLAND Cor. 3rd Ave. 13th St. S. Phone 327-1056 1971 JAVELIN Mackasey Fancies Unemployment Insurance Plan OTTAWA (CP) Labor Min- ister Bryce Mackasey doesn't want to be accused of boasting but he does fancy the idea that his white paper on unemploy- ment insurance is going to re- sult in "the most far-reaching piece of social legislation we've had in years." The comment popped out in an interview Friday as the min- ister dispatched most of the criticisms of the reform propos- als that have emerged in the BRYCE MACKASEY Far-Reaching Idea Commons labor committee in the last two weeks. Both business executives and labor union representatives have criticized parts of the pro- posals. The employers' briefs have warned grimly that the new level of benefits will be too high, that an unemployed man with a family who receives two-thirds of his normal income a maximum of a Week lose incentive to work. The maximum now is a week. Many have urged that the benefit period of 51 weeks be cut in ball, and that the required attachment to the labor force, to be set at eight weeks, should be made more than twice as long. Almost all have also opposed the idea of supplementary bene- fits for unemployment resulting from sickness or pregnancy These, they maintain, are wel fare measures and should be ..ept out of the schemej the Ca- nadian Health Insurance Asso elation even stated they would be unconstitutional. AGREE IN OPPOSITION Union spokesmen have with the employers in opposition to at least one pro- poral .0 make companies with r higher-than-average layoff pat tern pay higher premiums. The reform would hit hardes in the construction industry which gets million more each year from the insurance fund than it pays in. Other vie tims of such progress would be the transportation and service industries. Union concern has been tha the merit rating system will en courage employers both to pil' on the overtime in peak periods rather than hire part-time help and to undertake major layoff; before legislation goes into ef feet. Mr. Mackasey has heard of the arguments from cabine colleagues who finally approve! the white paper earlier tlii; year. He is willing, he said Fri day, to weigh some modifica tions but he is confident th scheme will go through Parlia ment largely unchanged. And if it does, he believes, i Will give a certain number o Canadians a first, limited, taste of guaranteed annual income Those who fear an adverse ef feet on incentive, he adds, coulc' rest easy if they would conside the results of experiments witl income supplements conductet in the United States.

The plan would make tenants eligible to vote in a plebiscite by registering them as joint owners of a lot. Only property owners are allowed to vote in such plebiscites. Mr. Gerhart said there is no limitation in the number of owners of the lot and that he "won't be opposed" to the plan." The minister hinted, how- ever, that the law may be changed at the next session of the legislature to prevent use of this loophole in future pleb- iscites.
