The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta iHt LtetHdflluae HfcftALD Wednesday, January 9.1874 Compulsory hospital plan in prospect B.C. may adopt Japanese drug treatment program VANCOUVER (CP) British Columbia is taking note of a compulsory treat- ment program for Japanese drug addicts that may be adapted for the province's 000 or more drug addicts. The Japanese program has reduced the number of heroin addicts to 100 from in less than 10 years through compulsory hospital treatment, rehabilitation and, if necessary, the penal approach. Dr. Conrad Schwarz, chair- man of the B.C. Medical Association's drug habituation committee, said he foresees a program of compulsory hospital stays and treatment in the province. "If a drug addict is not ad- mitted to hospital on a com- pulsory basis, in some in- stances he will be required to report regularly to a doctor or treatment he said. Malcolm Matheson. chairman of the criminal justice co-ordinating council in B.C., recently disclosed proposals for compulsory medical detention or quaran- tining of addicts. Dr. Tsutomu Shimomura, deputy director of the National Institute of Hygienic Sciences in Tokyo and a member of the International Narcotic Control Board, spoke about the success of the Jap- anese program on a recent trip to Vancouver. SLUMS HARD-HIT "In 1961 to 1962, the number of heroin addicts was es- timated at Dr. Shimomura said. "Many of them were slum- dwellers with no regular occu- pation or prostitutes." Before the program was in- stituted, addicts were ad- mitted to hospital only when they volunteered. Now, doc- tors and law enforcement of- ficials must identify an addict for compulsory hospital treatment.

Germany New York, U.S.A. Park site approval needed OTTAWA (CP) The federal JMpirnment would have to fsrlteroval from'tte council flOfe Yukon and Northwest before selecting land areas for national parks, der an amendment pasted in Commons northern Affairs committee. S. The committee voted 10-7 in favor of the amendment to the national parks bill which would require such approval. The bill still has to go back to Parliament for third- reading debate. Voting on the amendment, proposed by Thomas Bamett fol- lowed heated wrangling be- tween Conservative members, who supported the amendment, and Liberal members who felt it would give territorial councils powers beyond those they now have. The amendment would give the councils the power to re- ject federal park site proposals in the North, argued some Liberal members. "The people of the North do have first call to resources in their area but over and above that these areas belong to the people of Canada as a Ian Watson told the committee. The amendment would grant "veto power" which might deny Canadians the right to part of their heritage, he said. FAVORED BILL Conservatives Flora MacDonald (Kingston and the Islands) and Nielsen (Yukon) argued strongly in favor of the bill. Both reminded the com- mittee that it had unanimous- ly supported more representa- tion for the North when it held meetings in Whitehorse in December Voting against the amend- ment would deny the territories the degree of autonomy which provinces have in such matters, they said 5 h i o n s for Your F u t u r FURNITURE LTD.
