Even more important was the effect that dependence on prop- erty tax had on local govern ment decisions. As decisions tend to be con sidered in the light of the effec on the property tax base, devel opment policies are often un dertaken because they mlgh improve the fiscal resources o local government, he says. "The fact that such policie, might also have undesirable so- c i a I and economic con sequences is frequently min imized because of the more a" luring prospect of an expansio of property tax assessment."

(CP) Most of the 100 scientists at a special federal government "think tank" this week would probably say "go slow on a nat- ural gas pipeline to the North." But the scientists believe the decision will be political and economic rather lhan scientific. Dr. J. Tuzo Wilson, a geophy- sicist and principal of Toronto's Erindale College, told a news conference Tuesday that most scientists, especially earth, plant and wildlife specialists, would want more lime to do re- search. But the rate of development dent of the Royal Society ot Canada, said that if the country is thinking of spending about SG billion on a pipebne, then much more research money must be available to evaluate what wil happen when oil and gas re- serves in the North are used up. He said the world faces a crisis in supply of fossil fuel (oil. gas and coal) and that tins could happen 'Svit'un a life- time." He said this could be as close as 20 years or as far off as 60. depending on the reserves and how they are used.

New Democrat Trader David Lewis went to the original medicare province and blis- lereti Ihe Liberal government for drug prices so high they are "mind-blowing." Social Credit Leader Rea] Caouelte stumped Quebec's de- pressed Gaspc area, saying the Liberal welfare program is a patchwork wliicii "gives lo Ihose who need and for- gets those who do need." So it went Tuesday, Oct. 17 with 13 political shopping days until the voters have their say in the Oct. 30 federal election. Mr. Trndeau made a round o speeches- in Toronto and Brampton but the big one was in the North, .and therefore the scientific activity, will likely be tied to political and economic j JQ conditions, he said.

Party workers had been given some seats'to fill and did so, sometimes by busing people in from nearby communities. Only an occasional catcall floated down to floor level as Mr. Trudeau said under the Liberals Canada has a chance in 1972 "lo bring it all to- gether" and break through on technical, social and geo- graphic frontiers in the years ahead.
