S. liy GREG McINTVRR Herald Staff Writer At public hearings in Calgary and Edmonton next month doc- tors, lawyers and other occupa- tions will argue whether they should have more power to gov- ern their own affairs. A committee of MLAs is to suggest change? in regulations and policies governing profes- sions and occupations in a re- port to the spring 1973 session of the Alberta Dick Grucnv.ald (SC-Lcth- bridge a member of the committe headed by Catherine Chichak (PC-Edmonton Nor- said in three meetings since its establishment, this spring, the committee has been concerned not to give the im- pression that the government "has an axe to grind" with any particular occupation. "Really I can't even think of specific complaints we've any _ hoard against any particular he said In an interview. FOR SALE BY BRAND NEW COMPLETE WITH TRAILER COMPLETELY FINISHED MOTOR NOT INCLUDED Contacf Alfred Brau at Shaugnessy Phone 327-9617 At least 60 groups and a lew individuals representing n wide range of occupations are schcd- ijed to present briefs to hear- ings in Calgary Sept. 11 ar.d Pil- nonton from Sept. 25 to 29. Mr, Grucr.wald predicted hat groups representing doc- ors, lawyers, teachers and other occupations that now exert strong influence over their memU'rship will argue to re- tain or strengthen their powers of sell regulation. Tho comnriittee will be faced I'.ith deciding whether such powers are in the best public interest. The committee easily has the most difficult task facing ar.y provincial government commit- tee at the present time he said. What constitutes the "best public interest" is a "very neb- ulous, intangible and complex" Issue, said the MI.A. The committee was struck by tho government in the face of increasing requests from occu- pational groups socking the right to self regulation. Mr. Gruc-nwald said there now exists a "proliferation" of I different laws covering a wide range of different occupational groups. Legislation and efforts to safeguard the public interest are becoming increasingly complex, he said, For instance, there are a number of groups with varying degrees of aithority represent- ing workers in the field o! ac. counting alone, said Mr. Gruen- wald. One solution to the dilemna might bo to at least group oc- cupations into categories such as "health services" which could include doctors, tler.'.Lsts, nurses, pharmacists, and EO on.
