Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Under the deme By THE CANADIAN PRESS Disability pensions hiked Total disability pensions for injured workers will jump to a minimum of a month in January, an increase of under the Alberta government's new legislation introduced Friday. The revised Worker's Compensation Board act also includes increases in max- imum disability pensions to a level of a year, up from the present ceiling. Widows pensions would in- crease to a month from under what Labor Minister Bert Hohol termed the government's plan to humanize workers' compensa- tion machinery. The government, seeking to meet cost of living increases, raised the maximum pension levels by more a year than the committee had recommended. Maximum levels of compen- sations recommended by the committee would be based on 75 per cent of an income ceil- ing of The government, however, decided to increase the ceiling to It was in the old act. He had a 'proposal' TABER Warner MLA Doug Miller got nowhere with Solicitor General Helen Hunley Friday on a question about the relation between li- quor sales and automobile ac- cidents To the Socred MLA's ques- tion if the province had any figures relating an increasing number of accidents with the increasing number of liquor outlets She said, 1-no." Asked if she would consider reducing the hours of sale in private and public liquor out- lets, Miss Hunley jokingly replied she would consider anything. Bachelor MLA Gordon Taylor immediate- ly bounded to his feet with ac- companying laughter from both sides of the house. New feedlot regulations The province's regulations governing feedlots should be tabled in the legislature next week. Environment Minister Bill Yurko told Lethbridge East MLA John Anderson Fndav The regulations will es- tablish standards for feeding operations including minimum distances they can be established from residen- tial areas.

Higher family allowances and Canada Pension Plan (CPP) increments tied direct- ly to the rising cost of living are high on the list of Com- mons priorities. Interim family allowance a flat, non- taxable a child from the old monthly average of already are in effect and the government wants to raise it to an average of subject to income tax The interim increases were passed during the Aug 30- Sept. 21 emergency session that dealt with the rail strike. Also approved were higher old age pensions and increased benefits for retired govern- ment employees. final increase in family allowances and tying pension raises to the consumer price index are seen by some observers as one way for the Trudeau government to get back on its feet as far as public opinion is concerned Others argue, however, that living costs will continue to skyrocket, nullifying any real benefits from the package of antiinflation measures. The New Democratic Party has no love for Robert Stan- field's Conservatives, how- ever, and conceivably could continue supporting the Liberals rather than taking their chances with the elec- torate Another major bill, in- troduced Jan. 11, is Solicitor- General Warren Allmar.d's proposed extension of the par- tial ban on capital punishment. This would ex- tend for a further five years a moratorium on hanging ex- cept for killers of policemen or prison guards. A previous partial ban expired Dec. 31. This bill, now at report stage, also is a touchy issue as far as the voters are concerned. If passed, the abolitionists will be unhappy; if defeated, the retentionists who want all murderers hang- ed will be displeased. Another bill voters are interested in is the proposal by Ron Basford, minister of urban affairs, to set up a Crown corporation that w'ould buy and sell residential mortgages. Now in committee, it would establish the Federal Mortgage Exchange Corp. with million in capital and the power to borrow an additional million It also would provide for special mortgage investment com- panies to help individuals and organizations invest in mortgages, with special tax treatment for shareholders in such companies For at least the first four days, the Liberals will be in the hands of External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp. Prime Minister Trudeau, in China, is not due back until earlv Fndav Oct. 19. Energy report 6is misguided' OTTAWA (CP) A United States scientist says the government's recent publication. An Energy Policy for Canada is shortsighted in assuming nuclear fission will be the primary supplement and replacement for hydro and fossil fuels as an energy source. The Ottawa energy report also is misguided in assuming Canada's energy r e quirements can be planned independently of the United States, and for downplaying the importance of wind and solar energy. Roger Aikin of the University of Minnesota says in the October issue of Science Forum magazine Canada's nuclear reactor program is forging ahead although the research program for longterm safe disposal of radioactive wastes has only just begun, says Mr Aiken The Atomic Energy Com- mission's proposed concrete blockhouses to store these wastes were not foolproof because they could be rup- tured by earthquakes, destroyed by bombing or entered by saboteurs Mr. Aiken, a former federal government employee in Ot- tawa now doing research in solar energy, says federal and provincial governments have not given enough support to studies of the sun and ind as Well he asked 1 reported bart- end tirv 01 one mile sec- don ol llinhw.iy No ;
