Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 16, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thurtday, January 16, 1975 Health ministers agree on plan to hobble immigrant doctors OTTAWA (CP) Health ministers agreed Wednesday on a plan to restrict immigra- tion and movement by foreign doctors. The plan was put forward at the federal-provincial health ministers conference by On- tario Health Minister Frank Miller, who said it could knock million off the country's health bills by 1980. He told reporters these sav- ings were possible because a glut of doctors means the medical-care fund is billed to the limit. Moreover, expen- sive medical facilities were required in proportion to the number of doctors. The provinces agreed that prospective immigrant doc- tors should be given zero points in the occupational- demand category of the country's immigration selec- tion system, and the federal government agreed to change the regulations accordingly, Mr. Miller said.'

R. C. Ross, president of the Bakery Workers Union, Local 252, said Wednesday workers had voted 100 per cent approval of returning to work under a new two-year con- tract. He said the contract provides a weekly increase of over two years on a base rate of ?189 a week. The strike, which started Oct. 5, cut off supplies of bread and buns produced by the Safeway owned Empress Foods Ltd. for stores in Alberta and parts of Saskatchewan.

The occupation points also could be allowed if the doctor was a specialist in a category for which a province was in short supply. Moreover, the provinces will be able to require of foreign doctors who qualify for immigration that they serve in a specific area for a specified period, possibly two or three years or more. Mr. Miller said the province of Ontario wouldn't allow for- eign doctors, who first immi- grated to another province, into Ontario until they had become Canadian citizens. The control of distribution within Ontario would be man- aged by incentives and per- suasion, he said. There is no provision for controlling the movements of Canadian doctors. The controversial issue was raised at a health ministers' conference here one year ago, and there was apparent federal agreement then to place controls on im- migration, and consideration for restricting physician movements within the country. Foreign-trained doctors have been arriving at the rate of more than a year. Speech ends in uproar After her speech on Israel and the Mideast conflict, former federal cabinet minister Judy LaMarsh talks quietly with some of the Toronto audience while others shouted, swore and shook their fists.
