Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 24, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THI HKALD April 14, Counsellors Needed For Young Offenders CALGMIY (CP) A large Increase in professional coun- selling people and faculties {or handling young people will be needed if an Alberta govern- ment plan to alter the correc- tional institution system is to achieve its goal of returning juvenile offenders to the com- munity, a psychiatrist Thursday. Details of the plan were an- nounced Thursday by Bruca U Building Tagged 'Jailhouse' EDitfONTON (CP) A Na- tional Geographic Magazine photographer has voiced his doubts about the esthetic value at toe University at Alberta's buudiflg. biological sciences Rawson, a social worker wa- ponsible for tbe plan under a new correcaaat act passed ia the legislature test week. He said that about 100 juve- nile offenders will leave cor- rectional centres Aug. 1 for a month in the wilderness. In- stead of returning to an institu- tion, they will go home, to fos- ter homes, school or a youth development eentrc in Edmon- ton. Id future, most juvenile of- fenders would be channelled in- to a broadened probation pro- gram and social workers would work with tbe youth and his family on educational em- ployment opportunities. But Dr. Roy MacKenae, di- rector of the psychiatric out- patient department at Foothills Hospital, said in an interview that for giving gui dance and supervision lo Juve- nile delinquents are already in adequate and overcrowded In Dr. xi like, but you hare to have large professional staff and lot of supervinoB for social programs." Mr. Rawson aaid Th'jrsday hat tbe seed has been recog- iKd. The social development epartment, armed with an in- creased budget, was going as ar as Ontario to get qualified xrfessunols. But, he Mid, there may not a need for innumerable pro- essknal people because only a ew juvenile offenders are 'se- ously disturbed. Most In need of training and employ- ment, with perhaps some coun- selling. Frank Button of the Edmon- ton industrial relations office was showing Bill Garret around the campus recently and they had gone to the top of a build- ing to set up an evening photo- graph of the skyline. "I I might be able to get a better shot from the top of that old building over said Mr. Garrett. Informed that the "old" bald- ing was the new high rise biological sciences centre, he sniffed: "It looks like a county jail- bouse to me." lacKenrie said the plan is a step in the right direction but unless the province is pre- pared to invest large sums of money in penoonel and fatil ties it will fail.

Drug Laws Provoke 'Doubt, Dismay' ALBERTA WANTS PARK A. 0. right, Alberto's minister without portfolio In charge of northern development, told the Commons northern development commit- tee In Ottawa Thursday that the government the Alberta portion of Wood Buffalo National Park turned over to the province because the umerviced park 11 not only a block to communication with adjacent areas but Irs status at a national park prevents the de- velopment of natural resources. The park li located in northern Alberta and extends Into the Northwest Territories. Hera he chati with Bud Orange, left, liberal MP for Northwest Territories, and Paul Yewchuk, Conservative1 MP for Athabatka and com- mittee chairman. Alberta Wants Park OTTAWA (CP) The AlberU government wants the Alberta portion of Wood Buffalo Na- tional Park turned over to the province, the Commons north- ern development committee was told Thursday. A. 0. Fimrite, Alberta's min- ister without portfolio ia charge of northern development, told the committee that the national stilus of the park, which is lo- cated in northern Alberta and extends into the Northwest Ter- ritories, "rules out the possibil- ity of any meaningful total re- source analysis or comprehen- sive development planning." Because the park is not serv- iced and has no roads, it also blocks communication with re- gion] adjacent to the park, he said. The park was set aside by the federal government in 1922 to preserve the only remainini herd of wood buffalo. It includes nearly si.uare miles of which are In Alberta. GET BETTER CARE Mr. Fimrife said the buffak could be looked after on a game reserve. He said there are abou buffalo outside the park and these are looked after by the Alberta government. If the park were turned over lo the province, buffalo in it would re- ceive better treatment. He said many of those in the park are diseased and they re- ceive little or no care from the federal government. Mr. Fimrite said tbe federal government's position was con- end cuotiadictory. Be aid on one band National Park were enforced pro- biting development and on the hand limited timber har- vesting, fishing, trapping and untmg were allowed. 'More provision has been >ade for the buffalo la the area than for the 900 Treaty In- ians who reside in the Alberta ortion of the park." DOG SHOW Lethbridge Pavilion April 25 and 26 Admlxlon 50c UTHBKIDGE AND DISTRICT KENNEL CLUt The provincial government as powerless to consider resources developmen program for the Indians as long is the national park exists. "If the present unjust situa- on is perpetuated, tbe resi ents of northeast AlberU wil continue to suffer deprivation o economic opportunity becsusi their isolation and lack of transportation connections." SR1EFS PRESENTED Reprtesentativea from the northern AlberU settlements of 'ort Chipewyan and Fort Me- lon-ay and from Fort Smith, V.W.T., presented briefs sup- porting the AlberU stand and asking that either the bounda- ries of me park be changed to include a much smaller area or else the park be serviced as are other national parks. Fort Chipewyan asked that he park status be changed so natural resources could be de- reloped and because the south- ern portion of the park provides he only land access to the northeast portion of Alberta. Tip Hluskak, president of the 'ort McMurray Chamber of Commerce, aaid mining and .ourism could be developed if park status is changed. He said there are large amounts of gypsum in the area and proba- bly other base metals. Mayor Paul Kaesar' of For! Smith said the park restricts ex- tension of developed areas of Canada into the North. "The problem of providing ac cess to the eastern Arctic through Wood Buffalo Park must be resolved so that For McMurray can take its rightiul logical place in servicing the Canadian North.'' Allen Sulatycky (L-RocJcy Mountain) said he is not in favor of changing the borders o national parks every time a pro vincial government wants to de velop natural resources ia the urea. Banff National Park had ost abort 40 per cent of its orig inal area because of this kind of pressure. Bud Orange (L-Northwest Territories) asked Mr. Fimrite what the AlberU government' Ana for road building are he park ai banded over to tbe province, Mr. Fimriie said the govern- ment had discussed building 230-mCe road from Fort McKay A1U., to Fort Smith at a cost But it would first need the economic base tha would be provided if tbe park was handed over. EDMONTON (CP) A spe- cial report by tbe police de- partment released Thursday says, existing drug laws "have provoked an unprecedented de- fiance of law and order in the community, clouding tbe scene with disobedience, doubt and dismay." The report, prepared by S. i Sgt J. J. Doyle in reply to an inquiry from Alderman Cec tirves, is to be presented to crfy council Monday night It says there were 37 arrests made or summons issued for ulatians of drug laws in 1987. In 1961, this jumped by 570 per cent to 248 arrests or summons and in 1969 there was a 56-per- cent increase to 387. "The early trend for 1970 learly indicates no abatement in the arrest rate and a healthy statistical report of arrests is now projected for this present ear. "White enforcement is not a complete and total answer to be drug problem, it surely re- luces the incidence of offences and contains the present prob- lem at tolerable levels." Police would be assisted in enforcing tbe laws, the report adds, through control by "prop- er and enlightened legislation" along with a corresponding edu- cational program by school au- thorities at all levels of learn- ing. The report says a preventive approach is essential If drag abuse is to be curbed and the individual must be the basis of the solution. Sgt. Doyle says he opposes the legalization of marijuana and will remain opposed until complete answers are available on whether marijuana is harm- ful in any way.
