Welfare vouchers are degrading says local social development man By RUDY HAUGENEDER Staff Writer The voucher payment sys- tem used by the provincial de- partment of health and social development should be done away with, says a local wel- fare department executive. Cam Bracken, regional so- cial development manager said he was gratified to hear that Alberta Health Minister Neii age 55. People under those I of university degrees, Is class- ages receive cash unless they j ed as unemployable although capable and willing to work. These individuals receive pay- ment vouchers. In Lethbridge some stores treat voucher recipients well, are family heads or suffering from a severe handicap. Mr. Bracken said, society is still applying outdated rules in classifying employable work- ers. Some people, healthy but cannot handicaps problems, cause of emotional who work Crawford intends to do away capable of working, with the systein.

The forms clearly indicate that the buyer is on welfare. About 15 per cent of the prov- ince's welfare cases are on the voucher system, Mr. Bracken said. These are usually people the government has classified as unemployable because of age, physical or mental handicap or single parents or heads of fam- ily's usually women with children to support. Other recipients, who are classed as employables, are given cash to meet life's needs, he said. The department of social de- velopment r e g u 1 a tions state that any male over age 60 to 65 is considered unemployable and is therefore placed on the voucher payment system. The same is applied to women over whereas others do not, he said. The elimination of the vouch- er system can mean a consid- erable saving in time and money to the social develop- ment department, Mr. Bracken said. such as are not while so- ciety insists they are. Accord- ing to society's rules, anyone who is simply strong and healtliy is capable of doing heavy labor, he said. He cited an example where I "month Transit fares are dropped to 10 cents Transit system fares will be, fare and to submit a report to a 50-year old man with a Grade 3 education, and suffering from arthritis, is classed by the gov- ernment as employable until he reaches age 60. This recipient gets cash al- though, because of age and sickness, will probably not find work. The paradox, by comparison, said Mr. Bracken, is an in- dividual around age 70, who is physically and emotionally healthy, and may have a list period between Jan. 1 and June 31, 1971.

All council in June as to the effec- tiveness of the move. Bus tickets now are sold six for for adults and 12 for for children, an average of 12 cents per fare. Alderman Vera Ferguson, who submitted the resolution, said the city should regard the transit system as a service rather than as a utility. She said the fare standard- ization should encourage people to use the bus and leav their cars at home. Aid. Sieve Kotch said use of the bus system will not in- crease merely by manoeuvring fares. A better service must be j offered, Ire said. He suggested the existing lime sciicdule is not desirable for most people and that more frequent runs be tried. Council took no action on hii suggestion. Utility director Ollie Erdos said the 10 cent fare system will necessitate phasing out tic- kets and that the exact change will be required for a bus ride.

Ed Bastcdo and Deputy Mayor Cam Harncs were in fa- vor of Aid. Kcrgan's resolution and opposed lo ihe recommen- dation passed by the commit- tee. To Aid. Kergan's resolution, Aid. Steve Kolch said he would "bale to think council would be restricting a mulli-use cultural centre'1 by approving the city ball annex property. On the other hand, he said c library board "isn't making Lhat strong a case against that site." Aid. Tom Ferguson refuted :hat statement, saying the li- brary board "isn't the hard- nosed pushy type" and gen- uinely favors the Central School site. He said if the library' Is built on the city ball annex location, ic can visualize a building sur- rounded by concrete. Concep- ual plans for the Central School site call for areas of ;rass and trees. Aid. Vera Ferguson said it would be "short-sighted lo look at the commercial aspects of .he Central School property." She said the Central School site blends in with the civic centre complex, which she said the city's "greatest asset." The closing of 5th Avc. will facilitate the establishment of cultural complex based on the library and the Bowman Arts Centre.
