Dr. Cotnam criticized the On- tario Medical Association and the Ontario College of Physi- cians and Surgeons for not shelving more leadership in standardizing procedures. Concerning an inquest into the death April fl of Kathleen Negro, 57, o[ Thunder Bay, Ont., and a subsequent inquesl last week, he said: "The inquests find lhat no body was to blame but, damn il all. someone was at fault." Mrs. Negro died afler a surgi- cal sponge was left inside her abdomen following an opera- lion. He charged Uiat the lack of standardized charting proce- dures had caused deaths in On- tario because patients have re- ceived the wrong drugs or failed to get medication at all.

Government policies and programmes can create a climate for growth. But Governments can't legislate public confidence. Nor can they control the private initiative and enterprise which will finally determine how far and how fast Canada grows. Thatfc up to individual Canadians. People. A guaranteed investment The history of Canada was written by genera- tions of tough, self-reliant people who came here wilh Ihe same determina- tion to build something Think of the incredible difficulties lhat faced the immigranls who first settled here. Read about the Canadians who literally forged this country together a hun- dred years ago, in mile after impossible mile of railroad track. And remember the challenge of Expo '67. How many people even dreamed that Canadians could put on the greatest show Ihe world has ever seen? People like that are slill the most imporlanl resource we have. Un- employment is a waste of that resource a waste that affects every one of us, at every income level. 7f we can find enough confidence in ourselves to grow the jobs we need, we'll all be betler off for it. As a nation, we'll be producing more and selling more. As individuals, we'll be earning more and buying more. Something else. When we give people a chance lo build a chance to fulfill themselves we also give them pride and a sense of achievemenl. And those are gifts too valuable lo be measured in dollars and cents. What are our chances? Most economisls agree lhal Canada is beginning a new period of growth. In (he past year, we've contained inflation more successfully than any other country wilh a free economy. Things are moving. Companies are expand- ing. Opporlunilies are opening up. Bui we can slill do much better. How much betler depends on all of us; on how much we want to succeed. We have the people. We have the skills. Now we'll find out if we also have what it takes to make use of them. What Canada Manpower Centres can do. Canada Manpower is the opera (ing arm of lie Department of Manpower and Immigration, re- sponsible for the devel- opment and utilization of our human resources. In other words, their business is matching people with job oppor- tunities. Last year, for example, they helped more than Canadians find work. There are 390 Canada Manpower Centres across the country, all linked by Telex so that they work together as one cohesive force. They can arrange the training and retraining of workers and help them relocate in opportunity areas. They also have access to the researchers, the economists and the statisticians needed by business and industry to take full advantage of existing opportunities and lo create new ones. Canada Manpower Centres are there to help everyway they can. What Canadian businessmen can do. Our economy depends on the enterprise and energy of the private sector to create new wealth and employment. There has rarely been a better time (or a more urgent need) to translate lhat fact into meaningful action. Now al the beginning of an economic up-turn. Now when thousands of skilled people are ready and anxious to go to work. Now when there are Government programmes available to help wilh all kinds of business expansion plans. Canada's economic future is very much in your hands. The real slimulus for growth musl come from your initiative and your con- fidence in the future of this country. What Canadian workers can do. If you think Canada Manpower Centres are just for unemployed people, you're wrong. A Canada Manpower Centre is also the place to go if you're under- employed. If you're in- terested in learning a new trade or up-grading your present skills the counsellors there can tell you all about Govern- ment sponsored re- training programmes. (In these days of constant technological change, they can make all the difference in the world lo your And if you want to find out about employment opportunities in other parts of the country Canada Manpower is the place lo get answers. If you fit any of these categories, and haven't already registered wilh a Canada Manpower Centre, then do so now. What the Canadian people can do. Starl by examining your own altitudes in tho bright light of Canada'l current eAnomic prospects. Right now, personal savings are al a ten-year high. Which simply means lhat people have been careful about spending as people always are when timel are difficult. There's much less reason for that caulion loday. Whal's needed now is the kind of confidence that will persuade peopla to make those expen- ditures they've been post> poning. Because when people slart spending, manufacturers will be encouraged to expand into new markets and new product areas. That's what keeps the economy moving. And that's what grows jobs.
