Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, Ftbruary 4, 1974 THE LCTHMIDOE HERALD 11 Children's legal aid recommended CALGARY (CP) 'A system of government- sponsored legal aid should be developed to safeguard the rights of children appearing in juvenile court or indirectly affected by decisions of adult courts, an Edmonton lawyer said at the weekend. Alexander Hogan, director of civil law in the Alberta attorney general's depart- ment, emphasized he was speaking personally as he proposed a plan ensuring juveniles the right to a lawyer at a meeting of the Canadian Bar Association Children need a lawyer's advice because special juvenile and family courts established to order their rehabilitation often have failed to serve the child's best interests under a system of relaxed legal protection, he said "Society in the past realized that children required special consideration leading to the establishment of various forms of juvenile and familly courts dealing with the rights of children. "Unfortunately this doctrine has proven deplorable in that the child has not received the legal protection accorded to adults or -the special care and treatment that was intended for children." Mr Hogan said his plan would establish a list of private defense lawyers available to serve children' before the courts on.a rotating basis with reasonable payment coming from an existing legal aid plan or special government fund LAWYER The "duty" lawyers would have the right to see all records concerning the child's case including those of police and social service agencies. He would advise the child on his rights.and explain the Preschool therapy COALDALE Speech therapy for preschool children is available at the Barons-Eureka Health Unit by telephoning 345-4877 for appointment For social service appointments telephone Coaldale, 345-3388; and Taber, 223-3911. charges against him and would arrange for alternate counsel if the child wanted a different lawyer. Judges, under the new system, would revert to their traditional role as "mdependant and impartial arbitrators of Mr. Hogan said, leaving the championing of the child's interest to the lawyer representing him. His plan also called for establishment of programs that "truly" rehabilitate young offenders rather than simply punishing them with loss of liberty. A four-man committee of review would recommend whether or not a child should have a lawyer in cases where the need for one is not clear cut such as in divorce and adoption proceedings. The plan would be implemented with a minimum of changes in legislation because most of the new measures only call for changes in the rules of procedure guiding the day-to- day operations of existing juvenile and family courts. Free enterprise concern defeated EDMONTON (CP) A Calgary resolution deploring the increasing provincial government intervention in free enterprise was defeated Saturday during the 25th annual convention of the Progressive Conservative Association of Alberta. A spokesman for the resolution, submitted by Calgary said the government's intervention in industry should be discontined but she was more concerned over government involvement in social areas normally Dinners provide Tory cash EDMONTON (CP) Premier Peter Lougheed's fund raising dinners are keeping the Alberta Conservative Party's war chests in solid shape financially, the party was told Friday. In the party's last financial year, three dinners in Edmonton, Calgary and Letbbridge netted the organization The opening meeting of the annual party convention was told the party spending was in the last non-election year.

The resolution was debated lor the maximum 10 minutes and appeared sure to pass until a delegate pointed out that government withdrawal from some areas of infringement on free enterprise "could leave the energy field, and others, totally open to the men in Ottawa like Prime Minister Trudeau and Mr. {Energy Minister Donald) Macdon- ald." An earlier resolution, presented by Calgary Elbow, objected that the Alberta party has departed from a basic guideline in health care delivery systems and is interfering with the free marketing of petroleum products and other energy resources.

EDMONTON (CP) The caucus of the provincial government was urged Saturday by the Progressive Conservative Association of Alberta to consider establishment of a ministry of housing Delegates said the proposed ministry could increase the volume of construction of new, low-cost housing and could consolidate public administration of housing. Of nine resolutions referred to the caucus, only two v concerned energy. One advocated full review of oil and gas leases on private lands every seven years. The second confirmed the unofficial convention position that the provincial government be given full support in its dispute with Ottawa over ownership of natural resources.

The earnings would be augmented by funds from the department of health and social development providing medical security and "a reasonable standard of living.

He told an Alberta Conservative convention workshop that Edmonton's 1973 growth of only 835 persons indicates past attitudes are changing and some persons are moving to smaller, more decentralized towns. He said, however, that encouragement of growth in smaller centres should involve removing barriers against them rather than erecting new artificial barriers against growth hi .cities. t, Doug Roche (PC Eomon- ton Strathcona) said the trend to urbanization will have a detrimental effect on the quality of life if nine- tenths of the country's population lives in a dozen centres'by 1985. But he told a questioner that there is no simple answer as to what size Edmonton should be. Nor should a federal political try to make that judgment. "You can't put a fence around the city or any city but we can also make it attractive for people to go to smaller centres and stop the drift to 12 major urban cities." Mr. Clark said little modern research has been done into the viability of smaller centres but there is a "lot of myth" Private industry has a "mental block" against moving to smaller centres and they face federal discrimination through policies of rail line abandonment, lack of support from Central Mortgage and Housing Corp. and from regional economic expansion programs. Some smaller towns didn't even get notified of the availability of federal programs such as the Local Initiatives Program. Mr. Roche said that besides urbanization, another major problem is that Canada is becoming a "government-run nation" that requires decentralization in that field as well.
