Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 26, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Handouts prime election machine Octobor 26, 1972 THE IFIHBRIDGE HtHAlD 17 NEEDS NO DOCTORATE "Dr" Sydney Slcrn, a jovial 51-year-old hippie, says he is not an independent candi- date in the Oct. 30 Federal election, but the leader of Ihe Know Party, which will let people know what really goes on in Parliament. The "unlegalization" of marijuana is the major plank in the Know Party's platform. Mr. Stern who is running in Toronto's Spadina riding, has a dip- loma, issued by Rochdale College in Toronto, to certify that he has'a PhD in Nothing. Turner dismisses OTTAWA (CP) i Minister John Turner has rlis-1 missed a Conservative election j promise to provide !ax credits to small businesses as an im- practical gimmick that would create an "administrative nightmare." In a biting attack on both Conservative and New Demo- crat leaders and policies, Mr. Turner told a service club luncheon Wednesday that the two opposition parties are treating the campaign not as an election, but as an auction. Economic proposals put for- ward by the two parties wouM bankrupt the country', Mr. Turner said, reiterating earlier attacks that Conservative plans to increase spending and cut taxes would cost between bil- lion and billion in 1073 and similar New Democratic plans would cost as much as bil- lion. Mr. Turner singled out the Conservative plan to provide a tax credit of up to a year on investments by people small business as a "gimmick that is more likely to create confusion than conviction." WOULD HELP SOME "To (lie extent that it is pos siblo to comprehend it at all, il is apparent that it would pro- vide an opportunity for somt individual investors to reap a rich bonanza at the expense o other taxpayers %vithout meet ing any demonstrated need o small business for funds." The Conservative plan woulr! cost the federal treasury ?300 million in lost or deferred reve- nue and "pre-supposes the in estment of some million n new equity of Canadian owned small business." But the net amount of new equity investments by all Cana dian corporations in 1971 came :o only million, Mr. Tunie said. Such figures show "jus bow soundly based this schcmi really The governing Liberals hav'i developed a number of policies and programs (o help sma" and medium-sized business, li said. These included the Industria Development Bank, whic mar.o loans totalling mor tha million to such bus nesses in the year ending Sop tember, 1972, and variou changes in the tax system. Under the new fax law adopted last year, small bus nesses are taxed at 25 per cen on profits up to a year "allowing a small company t accumulate retained earning after taxes of before becomes subject to tax at th normal corporate rate." BUDGET HELPED The government budget las May also helped, Turin sairi, by reducing to 20 from 2 per cent the tax raie of profi of small manufacturers an processors and allowing the: to write off depreciation of m chinery and equipment at a fa tor rate. By CAUL MOLLINS OTTAWA (CP) Behind the highly-visible national elec- tioneering for the Oct. 30 elec- tion, another clement at work may be just as influential lor voters. That clement is the sclf-cffac- ng federal manent public servants, Crown orporations and vhich is churning out day by day what amounts to pub- icity for Literal candidates ceking re-election. By habit unbroken in the face o! a general election, these rou- ine mimeographed announce- ments of grants, loans and con- to news out- lets in the communities con- in the names of ministers or MPs of the last Parliament. Awards totalling hundreds ol millions of dollars, have been issued since tile election call Sept. 1. A seven-week col- lection of mostly single-page announcements makes a stock that weighs more than four pounds. JUSINESS AS USUAL A government official says ere has been nothing out of e ordinary since Sept. 1 in the magnitude, attribution md targets of such announce- enls. Government business ust proceed, even during an ection, the official adds. The so-called news handout inr.ouncements, usually of spe- al interest primarily to only ne community or neighbor- are in addition to the ews-conference spectaculars t which such announcements re made as the waterfront ark in Toronto, redevelopment f Ottawa's lower town oming soon, it is lulti-million dollar project to estore old Quebec City. It is one of the perquisites of le parliamentary system that parties seeking to sup- lant the government may nake promises, the party seek- ng re-election can both prom- se and produce. UI1LIC SERVICE HELPS kind lalely to ministers wlioso duties ordinarily do not include administration of money. ANNOUNCED GRANT Pat Maboney of Calga'.-y, minister of state, was able to announce a justice de- partment grant Sept. 22 to a community legal guidance group in Calgary. Privy Council President Allan MacEachen, seeking re-election in Cape Breton, Highlands- Canso has been named in 14 printed announcements from Central Mortgage and Housing Corp. diring Ihe last six weeks, financing in all more than million worth of housing in Nova Scotia. In a democratic spirit, cabi- net ministers are not the only ones to benefit from the public ity. Although officially there have wen no members of Parlia- ment since membership was dispersed by dissolution Sept. the cabinet federal departments continue to announce money grants in the names of Liberal "MPs." The public works department issued a release Sept. 8 saying that Bruce Howard, "MP for Okanagan an- nounced a construc- tion contract in Pcnlicton, B.C., his hometown. DESCRIBED AS MPs The transport department at- tributed announcement Sept. 26 of two airport-paving grants in their respective ridings to Lib- erals Douglas Stewart and Al- lan Sulatycky. They were de- scribed in the handouts as MPs respectively for Okanagan- Kootenay, B.C., and Rock) J Mountain, Alta. A health department handout ias Joseph Quay, "MP for St. announcing "a con- tribution of from the government's Health Resources Fund to help finance the ex- pansion of St. Boniface Hospi- tal." The department of regional economic expansion has been the most an- nouncements in 50 days in- volving in all about million in grants to companies. But Jean Marchand, the minister, announced them all. Central Mortgage, a Crown corporation, has been the most generous, issuing announce- ments at a pace of two a day, crediting various ministers and awarding grants, loans antj contracts a I a rate of about million daily, weekends in- cluded. campaign Swiss turn down Leary requests BASEL (AP) The Swiss, canton of Basel rejected Wednesday a request for a resi- dence permit by Timothy Leary, fugitive from a 10-year California prison term of drug charges. The Swiss also have turned down a U.S. request tha he be extradited. Conservative I'findidate 1VDP member? HAWKESBURY, Ont. (CP) Is the local Conservative candidate in the federal elec- tion a mcmlwr of the New Democratic Party? J. L. Montrcuil, Con- servative candidate In the riding of Glengarry-Prescott- Russejl, said in a telephone interview from his campaign headquarters today that he has not joined the NDP though he received a mem- bership card more than one year ago. The NDP campaign execu- tive in Glengarry-Prescott- Russell, issued a statement in nearby Alfred, Ont., that Mr. Monlreuil is a member in good standing of the party. "DIRTY" POLITICS Few election campaigns in all of Canada's history have been as bitterly fought as that in Grey North back rn W45.
