THE OTTAWA JOURNAL -p PENSION PLAN From Paee One: Says Portability Of No Value TORONTO (CP) - The Globe and Man says the portability feature has "almost disappeared" from the Ontario portable pension plan which goes into effect Jan. 1. 196S. From Page One Blunder , ' 2 Appeal the court ruling (which would delay a decision until after the election even though there was no hopi of success). , 3 Pay back the monies collected and Issue a supplementary tax bill (which would please tenants paying the surcharge, but would displease the property owner who would have to foot the whole bill). 4 Go after a private bill to legalize the collection (which would probably not get the electors any more annoyed than they are now about paying the surcharge). As Chief Justice McRuer said In bringing down his Judgment: - The city was "no doubt in a serious dilemma." SET PRECEDENT Ottawa set a precedent' in flHin nw Knurr tot Mtvmii when it imposed the water bull surcharges 14 month ago. The first levy which Chief Justice McRuer upheld and which it still being collected 'on the i water bill brings in about $1,500,000 annually for operation and maintenance ot the sewerage system and treatment plan. . The second levy .which Chief ' Justice McRuer killed although it is still being collected pro vided $500,000 to pay off the , capital costs of the- sewerage .; system ,- From a strictly legal view- . pelasV the eHy la jwt bilged to return Use monies already collected eveo though the bylaw was Illegal If the money was; paid with oat prurai, incn uiv nuuw holder has no grounds for re payment, the law says. . That meant full repayment would only have to be made to - the two companies who successfully fought the surcharge ., through the Ontario Supreme ; Court Keyea Supply and O'Keefe's Brewery. However, such i move would be most unpopular with the electorate as Council Is well than four months off. Partial repayment would be - necessary to those water users about one In 13 who protested payment following the court ruling that it was illegal. . That was the course suggested by Finance Commissioner Jim Lowther in June in slating the city would continue . collection pending policy it ' cision by Board of Control The paper says in an analysis ot the legislation that "company pension contributions will not be vested in an employee until he is 4$ and has been employed for 10 years. "A pension plan member changing Jobs at the age df 44 or younger will not be eligible lor pension portability, unless earlier vesting is provided for in the individual contract. "The portable pension plan, therefore,' is of no value to younger workers who may want to 'change Jobs. But the plan offers little, either lor employees who are in theloldet'age group, since vesting wijitpply only 40 company contributions' made after June 1, 1965." . The newspaper says this will lock older workers into their present Jobs as effectively as they. were before the plan was introduced in April, 1961. iFrom Page One i Turks v Turkish Air Force jets came to the aid of the Turkish-Cyp-riots, strafing Greek - Cyprlot positions for four days and halting the advance.- A UN-sponsored cease-fire ended the fig nt-ing. but both Turkey and Greece have announced the withdrawal of tome units from (he North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
