It's still a problem, say the specialists, but some provincial authorities across Canada have (tedded to do something about it. Their stand is no-fault automobile insurance, designed to bypass lengthy court cases by providing immediate compensation to accident victims regardless o! which driver is in the -IKJ-VJ But although it's called no-fault, some say the system is indeed a bit faulty. Ontario, amid heated arguments in the last legislature, adopted a compulsory scheme Jan. 1, a n d Alberta plans to follow suit next April. In doing so, they are joining Manitoba, Saskatchewan and British Columbia in plans varying somewhat in administration and detail. Four other Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Quebec are appraising the idea while Newfoundland taken no steps as yet in that direction. The Ontario plan, compulsory for anyone with car in-, surance, means an extra will be added to the regular premium. This will provide death benefits of more than and disability aljgw-ances up to a week. But it pays nothing for property damage. The payments are based on 80 per cent of a person's salary to a maxium of a week, with no time limit. In addition to the death benefits, will be [or each dependent after the first one. Under the Ontario plan H Is up to the insurance companies :o collect the premiums, pay the benefits and then go after the responsible party (or money owing. The Manitoba govemment-administered plan, in the face of fierce opposition from the insurance industry and others, went into effect Nov. 1, Oil. Under the plan, which also Includes property damage, all Manilobans are required to ouy insurance from a Crown agency, the Manitoba Public Insurance Corp., which also settles the claims. For severe personal injury, there is loss-of-income payment up (50 weekly for disability, up to IM weeks for partial disability and no time limit for total disability. In addition, there is a maximum of for dismemberment, disfigurement or impairment: funeral expenses and death benefit. For proparty damage, the scheme provides or deductible. Where fault is not clear in cases of collision, adjuster! assign percentage of fault. Premiums are collected in a lump sum which the driver purchases new licence plates. Driver premiums, much smaller than vehicle premiums, are collected when drivers' licence is renewed. The Saskatchewan plan, also government-owned and run has beer, in operation since 1946 and, despite dire foreboding from early critics, appears to be running smoothly. Drivers pay a year for a package with deductible for collision and comprehensive claims. In addition, most buy extra Insurance fitim private companies or government insurance offices. This compares with Hx days when the province pioneered the concept. At thai time, for a on the car registration and or the licence private driver received pain, suffering and out-of-pocket expense benefits disability benefits and pay ment for death or dismember ment. Commercial users pail more. ALBERTA SYSTEM While the plan becomes compulsory in Alberta in April it has been available or an optional basis since 1969 at the same additional As in Ontario, the Insurance companies collect and settle the claims. Although still tentative, the settlement payments for severe personal in juries are estimated to be a week for 104 weeks. Loss of both hands, bott feet or sight of boli eyes will mean compensation of loss of one hand and one tax one hand or one foot and one eye one arm above the elbow or one le{ above the knee one hand, one foot or sight of one eye each. Death benefit is expected to ta plus for each dependent child under 18. In addition, a customer may buy more than the basic in lots of B.C.'s no-fault plan came into effect Jan. 1, 1971, compelling all drivers to cany at least coverage for third-party injury, death or property damage. H is also run through private companies. Ex Gas 3.95 Kaiser Res J'Sg.

The essence of the new policy, announced recently by Social Services Minister Sir Keith Joseph, is that in future psychiatric treatment will form part of the regular National Health Service care provided by ordinary hospitals. The mentally sick will thus be treated on much the same footing as the physically ill. The old hospitals, many dating from Victorian days when they bore the odious label of "lunatic will be done away with during UK next 15 years, Joseph told the Commons in a written statement There will be a tr ito brand reduction in the numbers of their patients until the transition is complete. Elderly patients with nowhere else to go -and chronic mental patients will be transferred to small residential hospitals in the area while the rest will move to modern psychiatric wards in 230 district general hospitals being planned for England and Wales. WILL LIMIT CAPACITY By 1975, 170 of the new hospitals are scheduled to be in operation, either completely new structures or modernized older buildings. Joseph said the average psychiatric unit in these bos-pitas wlould hold 120 beds. At present, in-patient treatment averaged three months, but the new plan meant a greater emphasis on out-patient treatment. There would be "day hospitals" where patients could new era given work to do; social workers to help families when patients return home to live, and co-ordinated welfare facilities by local authorities who would receive a spetid grant. England and Wales now have about mental patients in 116 special hospitals. Joseph reminded the Commons that about five per cent of Britain's population will suffer some form of temporary mental illness during their "about two people in any as he pointed out. "In their way, the vast Victorian mental hospitals led the world, but they are entirely isolated and often 10 miles or so from the homes of their the minister said. ATTITUDES CHANGED The drug revolution had "entirely changed" treatment of psychosis, neurosis and schizophrenia, he added, and persons with mental disorders now went into hospitals tnd were cured. Joseph recalled that until the Mental Health Act of 1959, which relaxed some of the fearsome formalities tur-rounding mental treatment in the old days, half the people who had suffered mental illness had been treated under legal detention of the insane. Today only about seven per cent are legally detained. The Guardian commented in an editorial that public attitudes towards mental illness bad undergone something of a revolution in recent years. "There is greater acceptance now that there is nothing more shameful in suffering a nervous breakdown than in having an appendix removed." This change, the newspaper noted, had been matched by the emergence of new ideas about mental treatment, eliminating, as far as possible, the barriers between a menta pla-tient and his ability to lead a normal life. Provided Joseph obtained the right financial backing, the Guardian said Die new proposals should help eliminate remaining prejudice and enable the mentally sick to lead "fuller, more satisfying Missing Alberta snowmobilers are found MANNING (CP) A group of 15 snowmobilers, reported missing Saturday night on a trip from Fairview to Manning, were found Sunday about 15 miles south of here.
