II. ASPER The controversy over Consu- mer Affairs Minister Ron Bas- ford's recent Boston speech continues. The gist of his re- marks was that the business community frequently produce unnecessary products and by the power of pervasive adver- ting sells them to the public. To combat this unworthy practice, he suggests that busi- less should voluntarily restrain :he amount of advertising it in- iects into the cost of consumer joods. The Minister then warn- ed that if business didn't volun- den) taxes which are burled In the price of goods bought by cons u m e r s. Few are even aware of the size of the tax component in, the price of those goods. In fact, most consumers don't realize the existence of the mammoth hidden tax sys- tem. If the Consumer Affairs De- partment principle of full db closure were applied to the tai system, the 12 per cent manu facturers' sales tax, the tobac co, liquor, customs, gasolin and a host of other hidden taxe. would be disclosed as part o the cost of each item bough These taxes are, for the mos part, paid unknowingly by th Grain Price Review arily limit its advertising push, the government might tep in and legislate the amount hat one can spend on product womotion. The technique suggested by Ir. Basford was that the tax rules might be amended to pro- ibit the deduction of certain dvertising costs. That would ave the effect of doubling the ost of advertising, and would likely act as an effective deter- ent for most companies; unless ley were poor sports and pass- d the extra cost occasioned irough the tax penalty on to le consumer, in higher prices. If the Minister's plan were arried out it wouldn't be the rst time the tax rules on ad- ertising expenses were adjust- d to produce a non tax effect. ive years ago, the Income Tax ct was amended to prevent ompanies from deducting ad- ertising expenses from their income where the advertising ras done in non Canadian pub- cations selling into the Cana- :an market. The idea wasn't to increase overnment revenue by increas- ig the taxes of the advertisers, was to render the cost of ad- erfeing in foreign (read Amer- can) periodicals prohibiti v e ompared with advertising in a ax deductible way through Ca- adian magazines. The tax was esigned to help the ailing Ca- adian publications. ROTECTION MOVE In the present situation Mr. asford isn't aiming his tax at assisting an indus- y; rather, his object is to pro- ct the Canadian consumer, hile his goal may be laud- his c o m m en t s have ready attracted considerable e from those who fear that his zeal to correct the .things at are wrong he may also de- troy the things that are right th the non-government econo- ic system. [t is not a new debate, nor is the purpose of this commen- ry to evaluate the pros and ns of the big brother syn- ome. Nevertheless, it's diffi- !t to reconcile Mr. Basford's dour in compelling business be frank and open in its deal- gs with the public, as it ould, with an apparent disre- rd of the same high principle government in its taxing pol- es. :DDEN TAX Each year the Federal and tovincial governments collect any billions in indirect (hid- Winnipeg Grain Prices continued with a firm undertone. WINNIPEG (CP) A sharp flurry in Vancouver and Thun der Bay rapeseed late in-the session on the Winnipeg Grain Exchange today shot most fu tures up four to six cents. The November future in Vancouver rapeseed was up as high as 14 cents. The flurry was attributed to aggressive buying by a large international house as well as exporter buying and short cov- erings. Offerings were light. Some short coverings in Oc- )ber flax pushed prices up three cents. Other futures were above the market.

Because they now produce almost as much reve- nue as the direct income taxes, there is no valid reason that they should continue to be hid- den from public view. A few years ago, a retailer, tired of being blamed for ris- ing prices, startled his custom- ers by making the following full disclosure in advertising his goods: FINE LADY'S COAT- VERY REASONABLE Raw material, labor and overhead I 4A.M Custom tax on material 7.00 Manufacturer's profit 3.75 Manufacturer's corporation tax 3.75 Manufacturer's sales tax..... 7.25 Retailer's handling cost (Includ- ing property tax, business tax and licenses) 11.25 Retailer's corporation tax 5.00 Retail Sales tax 5.00 Retailer's profit 5.00 Total selling price (105.00 Governments are not moving toward the full disclosure prin- ciple in taxation. In the United States, Congress recently in- creased its airline ticket tax by 60 per cent from five to eight per cent. Not only is the tax hidden, it is a secret tax. Airlines are legally forbidden :o disclose the tax by showing he air fare plus tax break- down oh billings to customers. In Canada, the Federal Gov- ernment has agreed that as jart of Constitutional reform, ,he provinces will be given the right to levy indirect (hidden) axes, a right presently denied Iiem. If we accept the concept that this is the age of full disclo- sure and open government, it seems appropriate that the same theory should apply to axation. If that is so, all taxes, direct and indirect, should be drawn to the attention of the axpayer as is the case with the provincial retail sales tax.
