To raise 0IS.OM,N through the regular personal Income tax would require increasing every-, one's income tax by almost M per cent," the foundation said. However, the Hall commlssioa said the cost should be shared about equally between the federal -and provincial governments. Just as they, now share the cost of hospital Insurance.

As for the provinces, they conceivably could raise their share by collecting premiums from everyone or by Increasing sales taxes, in those provinces which have them. Using sales taxes aione, the foundation said, would mean Increasing present rates by t h r e e percentage points. '' . If premiums were used to raise the full provincial share, these would have to be about t7l a year for a family and M0 for ' a single person. These would be In addition to premiums already collected In some provinces for hospital Insurance. , One 'other possibility raised by the foundation was to divert existing federal family allowance payments to the health program. This would lower the amount of extra public funds required by some IM4.000.000, leaving a "more manageable" t37S.000.000 to be . raised by taxes of one kind or another.
