Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, February THE UITHiRIDOE HERALD Dateline Alberta Car dealer fined EDMONTON (CP) A local car dealer, Noraltg Motors Ltd., was fined Thursday on charges involving altered odometers. The company pleaded guilty in provincial judge's court to three charges under the Highway Traffic Act of turning back odometers and one charge under the Criminal Code of fraud. The charges relate to three cars purchased by the company from a Vancouver auto dealer. One 1969 model was purchased for and registered miles. When it was sold by Noralta for it showed miles on the odometer. A 1968 automobile with mileage of was purchased for and sold for with miles on the odometer. And the third car, a 1970 model bought for with miles shown, was sold for with the mileage registered as Mayor conies under fire EDMONTON (CP) The provincial secretary of Alberta's New Demoncratic Party said Thursday "it is somewhat silly" for Edmonton Mayor Ivor Dent to say he will resign if voters turn down a Commonwealth Games funding plebiscite. Howard Leeson said there are more important issues facing the city. He questioned why Mayor Dent has not "put his job on the line" over issues such as public housing, lower priced land, public transportation, and finding solutions to pollution problems. "If the mayor doesn't feel Edmonton is exciting enough without the Games then perhaps he should Mr. Leeson said in a prepared statement. Jorgenson is appointed EDMONTON (CP) L. G. Jorgenson, secretary manager of the Alberta Potato Commission, has been appointed to the board of the Agricultural Development Corporation, Agriculture Minister Hugh Homer announced Thursday. Dr. Horner said Mr. Jor- gensen's background in vegetable and potato production will be of benefit to the board in '-'determining needs of these specialized Alberta industries."

Foreign-doctor ban discussed by ministers OTTAWA (CP) A proposal to keep doctors out of public medical insurance plans if they, try to set up practices in places where doctors are abundant was put forward Thursday at the health ministers conference. Health minister Marc Lalonde said this possibility had been discussed seriously by the health ministers as one way of ensuring that medical manpower be spread more evenly. Another possibility was to ban foreign-trained doctors under new regulations now being drafted by the immigration department, he told reporters at the conclusion of a two-day con- ference. If foreign doctors continue to enter the country at past rates, there might soon be a glut of doctors, he said. At present, slightly more than of the country's doctors are foreign-trained. Mr. Lalonde said the minis- ters agreed more opportunities should be available for Canadian students to enter medical schools and practise in Canada. "Well co-ordinated measures" soon would be taken to promote better distribution of physicians' services particularly in rural areas, and to relate specialty training to community needs. Under consideration to achieve this was a physician quota system by regions, better medical school enrolment planning and restrictions on immigration. BAN ADVERTISING Mr. Lalonde also said some provincial ministers had sug- gested an outright ban on all drug advertising. At present, prescription drugs can be ad- vertised only in physicians' journals but non-prescription drugs can be advertised in all media. Some ministers had suggested the country was on the verge of becoming "a chemical in which drugs are considered a way of Nude transit passenger arrested EDMONTON (CP) A 23- year old city man who walked nude through an Edmonton Transit System bus Thursday has pleaded guilty to a charge of committing an indecent Edward Cbatschaturian was examined in Alberta Hospital before appearing clothed in Provincial court He will be sentenced Feb. 21. Mr. Cbatschaturian was ar- rested after he disrobed shortly after boarding the bus. He told a bus driver he was a sun worshipper and was afraid of his clothes. The temperature at that time was about five degrees above zero. life and essential to relieve pain and disease. The conference decided tougher screening is needed for all drug advertising, a recommendation of the Le Dain Royal Commission Inquiry into the non-medical use of drugs. But an outright ban on advertising would be impractical, said M. Lalonde. It would hurt advertising revenues in Cana- dian media, while Canadians would still be exposed to such advertising from U.S. television stations and in U.S. publications. It was agreed that health officials, before starting any program of controls, would inquire if U.S. authorities planned tougher drug advertising regulations. This area was "fraught with difficulties. We need new legislation but it has to be. sensible and practical." Most provincial health ministers, including Dennis Cocke of British Columbia, Neil Crawford of Alberta and Walter Smishek of Saskatchewan, agreed the conference had been a suc- cess. It was the first opportunity in several years to discuss real health problems instead of health financing formulas, said Mr. Crawford. However, Mr. Smishek struck one sour note. He said he had pressed the federal government to become more involved in alcohol addiction research and treatment, but got a lukewarm reception from Mr. Lalonde. Considering the. large' revenue the federal government gets from liquor excise taxes, it is irresponsible 'of the federal government not to become more active, said Mr. Smishek. He also said Indians and Metis, who are particularly prone to alcoholism, are a f fed- eral responsibility. The federal government collected million in liquor excise taxes in the fiscal year 1972- 73. A conference communique said the ministers fear, the public is overly-optimistic about the possibilities of acupuncture treatment, the method of inserting needles into selected points of the body to treat pain and disease.
