Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE lETHBRIOCf HERAIO Werlnejdoy, October 13, 1971 Government tax-change bill close to approval By DAN TURNER OTTAWA (CP) The govern- ment's tax-change bill received a boost in its race against the calendar Tuesday when the Commons gave it second-read- ing approval. But what New Democrat House Leader Stanley Knowles called crunch debate was sched- uled to begin tcday. The House becomes a committee to consi- der the 707-page bill clause by clause. The government's deadline for passage is Dec. 31, which would automatically make it UK basis for 1372 income tax re turns. There has been considerable conjecture that the governmen won't reach ils tune goal. The bill is three inches thick complicated, and has to get re port-stage and third-reading ap- proval from the Commons aftc: committee analysis before goini on to the Senate and subsequen royal assent. Some members suggest the government wasted valuable Commons days stace Labor leaders on wage board WASHINGTON (CP) Top United States labor leaders agreed Tuesday to serve on President Nixon's wage board to control inflation after Nixon B.C. family killed in plane crash LAGOS (Renter) A Cana- dian family of four died when their privately owned four- seater Piper Aztec crashed near the tin-mining town of Jos in northern Nigeria, a spokesman of the Canadian high commis- sion said today. He named the dead as Wil- liam Nixon, 38-year-old techni- cal instructor from Vancouver; his wife Lavinia, and their chil- dren, Paul, 16, and Susan, 14. The family, buried in Jos Tuesday, were returning to their base in Jos from Kadima when their light aircraft ran Into bad weather. After hovering around the landing strip for awhile, the air- craft crash-landed and burst into flames, eyewitnesses said. Canadian high commission sources said Nixon was a vet- eran pilot who flew for several years when he was working in East Africa. He came to Nigeria more than a year ago under the tech- nical assistance program of the Canadian government. He was assigned to teaching duties at the government technical school in Bukuni near Jos. promised there would be no veto of the board's decisions. "We are telling the president we are going to serve on thif board and try to make it AFL-CIO President George Meany said. The presidents of the two largest independent unions Frank Fitzsimmons of the Teamsters and Leonard Wood- cock of the United Auto Work- ers, said they too would serve on the board 'if asked by Nixon. The decision was announced after a summit meeting of the labor leaders received a pledge initialed by Nixon that the 15- man pay board would be aufon- omous. The board will have five representatives each from labor, industry and the public. "The Cost of Living Council will not approve., disapprove or serve as an appeal level for case decisions made by the pay board and the prices commis- sion and it will not approve, re- vise, veto, or revoke specific standards or criteria developed by the pay board and the price said the Nixon memo marked "O.K." in the president's handwriting. The three labor leaders said they would insist that the pay board allow previously negoti- ated wage increases to go into effect, and that workers get ret- roactively pay increases held up during the 90-day wage-price freeze which expires Nov. 13. If outvoted by industry and public members, they would still insist on such payment, the labor leaders said. 'That money is coming to those workers and they should get it any way they can get Meany said. MAYOR A. C, (Andy) Anderson For Continuing Sound Civic Government RE-ELECT A. C. (ANDY) ANDERSON for MAYOR Inserted by A. C. ANDERSON Sept. its Prairie grains stabilization bill, which it finally dropped Tuesday. SPENT 12 DAYS Twelve days have been spent on the tax bill since the House resumed in September. There is also the question of whether the government is anx ions to rush a new tax base into effect when U.S.-Canadian eco- nomic relations remain so un- certain. If the government is forcec into making the fundamental reassessment in its relations with the U.S. that Mr. Trudeau and other government leaders have said it might, Canada's economic structure would un- doubtedly have to undergo dras- tic changes. Both Opposition Leader Rob- ert Stanfield and NDP Leader David Lewis spoke on the bill Tuesday. Mr. Stanfield said that the most charitable thing he could say was that the bill is ir- relevant in present circum- stances. It would do nothing for exist- ing unemployment and inflation, and would likely need major changes to cope with the 10 per cent import surcharge and other economic policies introduced by the U.S. It was not sensible to proceed with the bill "as if nothing had happened." Mr. Lewis said the Commons was a bit like Alice in Wonder- land, wading through the com- plexities of the bill while unem- ployment was rising and the government was making a thor- ough review of its relations with the U.S. Any important change in rela- tions with the U.S. must include changes in Canada's tax laws, e said. Neither mentioned U.S. oppo- sition lo the tax bill, which was included in the list of U.S. grievances against Canadian economic policies in the docu- ent leaked .to the Chicago Tribune and published Monday. External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp told reporters 'ollowing Tuesday's question pe- ricd he had not been aware the U.S. government was displeased with the bill. The Tribune report said the U.S. was concerned that there ivould be discrimination against J.S. firms based in Canada under the proposed tax laws.
