Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 7, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THt UTHBHIDGE HWAID Otlobtr 7, MP Urges Government Ombudsman OTTAWA (CP) The grow- ing power of the public service bureaucracy makes imperative creation of an ombudsman post government, Robert Thomp- son Deer) told the Commons Tuesday. Mr. Thompson made his plea as he opened- second reading debate on his own public bill that would provide for creation of a "parliamentary commis- sioner for administration" to assist citizens who fee! they are being taxed unfairly. Such an official, Mr. Thomp- son suggested, would act as an ombudsman on tax cases. He compared the role to that of the auditor-general who serves as a watchdog on government spending. Donald Macdonald, finishing out the session as government House leader, replied in the de- bate, dismissing Hie suggestion that an ombudsman for tax cases would be able to operate as does the auditor-general. He said the tax review board al- ready exists to defend citizens' interests. The bill did not come to a vote in HIvate members' hour. Welfare Cases Hike Blamed On Government CALGARY (CP) The fed- eral government's economic policies are to blame for Cal- gary's over-all increase in wel- fare cases, Sam Blakely, the city's social service director, said Tuesday. The only way to beat the problem, he said, is for the government to implement a policy of full employment. If not, victims of unemployment will progressively increase wel- fare rolls.

M PHONE 32B-7684M Corporation Act Changes Given Commons Approval OTTAWA (CP) Legislation to make many foreign-owned companies disclose for the first time details of then- Canadian operations moved to the final stage Tuesday as the Commons acceded to Senate modifica- tions. The Senate amendments were approved 158 to 28 despite New Democratic Party protests that tlie changes represented a "cor- porate veto from the other place (the Standing in the 264-seat Com- mons: Liberal 152, Conservative 72, NDP 23, Creditiste 13, Inde- pendent 1, vacant 3. The legislation, a set of amendments to the Canada Cor- porations Act, now requires only royal'assent to become law. Earlier, the House waived a formal vote in giving third and final reading to a Senate bill to transfer incorporation of the Hudson's Bay Co. to Canada from England. The company moved its headquarters to Win- nipeg this year, 300 years after its incorporation by charter from Charles II.. The Commons also looked at legislation providing wholesale revision of .the Canada Grains Act as it moved to clear, up odds and ends of business before the session is prorogued today. A new session is'to open with the speech from the throne Thurs- day. The 'main interest of the day, however, was the announcement by External Affairs Minister Mitehell Sharp that the govern- ment will not accept ransom de- mands from the Quebec-based kidnappers of British Trade Commissioner Richard Cross. The corporation act change, originally approved last June by the Commons, is the first legis- lation put forward by the gov- ernment in response to recom- mendations in the 1968 report on foreign ownership by Professor Melville Watkins of the Univer- sity of Toronto. Mr. Watkins is now a leader of the nationalistic NDP Waffle group. Corporate Affairs Minister Eon Basford said in an inter- view he hopes provincial gov- ernments wUl enact similar leg- islation to apply to corporations in their own jurisdictions; "If the provinces don't move we will have to consider other ways of improving and getting uni- form corporate disclosure in he said. The federal legislation applies to all corporations within its ju- risdiction wliich have assets of more than million or sales of more than million. The corporations will be. re- quired to disclose their financial situation in annual statements available to the public and the government will have greater powers to inquire into their af- fairs. The restrictive trade practices commission also will be empowered to investigate suspected fraud or mismanage- ment. Alberta Education Cost To Hit Billions In 1981 EDMONTON (CP) Educa- tion in Alberta will cost be- tween and billion in 1981, two professors at the Uni- versity of Alberta said today. the billion figure is "a very c o n s e r vative" estimate based on the introduction of "severe limitations upon the development the educational said Drs. Eric J. Hanson and Peter J. Atherton. Their statement was contain- ed in a 69-page brief prepared for the Worth Commission cm educational planning and pre- sented to an Edmonton Cham- ber of Commerce sponsored seminar on education finance. The brief said that during the 1970s o v e r-all student enrol- lment will continue to exceed the rate of total population growth, student frequency will increase and more expensive types of educational programs Rented Airliner Was Overweight On Fatal Flight WASHINGTON (AP) The U.S. government says an old Martin 404 airliner on its first passenger flight after coming out of mothballs may have been pounds overweight when it crashed in the Rocky Moun- tains, killing .30 persons on a Wichita State University Foot- ball trip. A second rented plane used to fly the football team was grounded Tuesday after the Federal Aviation Administration said it found 16 maintenance de- fects.

The same plane veered off a runway and bent a propeller when a landing gear collapsed tried to take off from Okla- homa City to pick up the Wichr ita State team for a.flight to West Texas State the previous weekend, the FAA said.

Alberta now spends mil- lion on education, 14 per cent of the personal income of its residents, but educational ex- penditures will continue to grow more rapidly than in- come, said the paper. "Any projections need to be related to the per capita in- come which m a y be expected to continue to increase even though the rate of population growth decelerates." The professors estimated to- tal Canadian spending on edu- cation could reach billion in 1981, more than one-fifth of the gross national product. It is es- timated the 1970 spending on education in Canada will be billion, or less than 10 per cent of the gross national product. "A number of constraints will make themselves felt, how- ever, and a likely projection for 1981 is about billion. Alberta society would change and although birthrates would be lower, more adults would go back to school and put a steady pressure on the educational system. They also said the demand for pre-school programs is growing in the province. There is a "need to open the minds of youngsters very early in life, to counteract lack of cultural opportunities within family life. The two professors rec- ommended establishment of more day care centres. Dr. Hanson is professor of economics and Dr. Atherton is in the department of educa- tional administration at the university. Cartoonist Raps Fakery, Fascism TORONTO (CP) Cartoon- ist Al Capp, who comments on the United States social scene through his L'il Abner comic characters, carried his cam- paign against "fakery and fascism of the far left as well as the far right" into Canada Tuesday. "I never was a liberal, I'm not a conservative, I'm a pro- fessional Mr. Capp told the Advertising and Sales Club of Toronto. He levelled criticism at a variety of American targets, describing student agitators as "demented some U.S. university teachers as "faculty fakers" and Senator Edward Kennedy a "lousy 16- hour-a-day senator." Commenting on student un-. rest, he said: "Call it what it is: Crime. We don't need any new solu- ions, but we have got a lot of old solutions if we have the guts to use them." Mr. Capp criticized. Mayor John Lindsay of New York for lowering the U.S. flag in memory of students killed during Kent State University riots. "He lowered the flag for the wrong people." "While the mad dogs and faculty fakers were tearing the place (Kent State) Mr. Capp said, "those kids in the National Guard were or- dered to leave their class- rooms and jobs to protect that university from a filthy, howl- ing mob." He warned that Canada faces similar problems. AL CAPP criticizes students Asked to comment on U.S. military deserters and draft dodgers who take up resi- dence in Canada, Mr. Capp referred to the "give us your refuse" inscription on the Statue of Liberty.

Ontario Government Plans Big Tax Reform Program TORONTO (CP) A major tax reform program, providing relief .to pensioners, farmers and municipalities, was un- veiled the Ontario legislature resumed after sum- mer recess. Opposition members immedi- ately charged that the program was a vote-catching device for a provincial election expected next year, with most of the up- roar coming from members of the New Democratic Party, ap- pearing in the house for the first time under their new leader, Stephen Lewis. House Leader Robert Welch said the first payment in supple- ment tax relief to elderly resi- dents who receive the federal guaranteed-income supplement would be made by the end of this year. These persons will receive a basic to apply to their taxes, whether they live in their own home or a single room. Maxi- mum payment would be to a household of husband and wife where both receive the federal supplement. Mr. Welch said the effect of the new plan, combined with the existing property tax reduction program, "could eliminate their entire property taxes." No detailed inquiries or means tests would be required for the new benefits for the eld- erly, the statement said. Fire Destroys Feed Elevator MAG-RATH (HNS) Fire swept a feed elevator near Spring Coulee Tuesday causing damage amounting to It was located on the farm of Jack -McKenzie, Lee Stanford and Bob Ainscough which is si- tuated seven miles south of Spring Coulee. Three fire engine pumpers, two from Magrath and one from Cardston, attended the blaze.. Firemen fought the fire from a.m. until p.m. The fire started when a hired man went to turn over some grain in a bin that, was heating and it burst into flame. The building was valued at The rest of the loss was in feed pellets, rapesced, barley and wheat. Insurance was carried. Another fire occurred recent- ly at Lonely Valley, east of the Mclntyre Ranch, when 25 acres of barley owned by Charles Ackroyd of Magrath, caught fire during combining operations and burned.

RCMP said the fire was dis- covered by Mr. Nicbipprich's son. No one else was in the house at the time of the fire. Holchklss is about 270 miles northwest of Edmonton. Payments would be made au- tomatically to nil eligible per- sons. Relief for farmers would be ready by the end of this year and will be made to owners of land assessed for farming equal to 25 per cent of their net 1970 property taxes. Although designed to help all farmers, the program stipulates that owners of properties of less than 11 acres must have a gross income of from the farm- ing of their land to be eligible. It would not be "proper to relieve taxpayers who own land that is merely being farmed while it is being he5d for spec- ulative purposes." To encourage more efficient systems of public transit, the highways department has been asked to advise the government by the end of the year as to how financial aid can best help mu- nicipalities move great masses of people, particularly in Metro- politan Toronto.
