Weather and road report TORONTO (CP) The Union of Ontario Indians called Satur- day for a coroner's inquest into the deaths of three northwestern Ontario Indians in an influenza epidemic, terming federal health services In the area "a disgrace." Union president Fred Plain asked for the inquest in a tele- gram to Attorney-General Allan Lawrence and Dr. H. B. Cot- nam, Ontario's supervising cor- oner. Mr. Plain urged that the inquest be conducted bilingually in Cree and English before an all-Indian jury. The influenza epidemic broke out New Year's weekend and since then 28 Indians have been admitted to hospital in Red Lake, a tiny settlement 400 miles northwest of Thunder Bay. One of the Indians died in the jospital and two others died In their homes. A union spokesman satfl health services, provided by the federal health and wel- fare department, are virtually non-existent. The spokesman said a nurse at Sandy Lake took her tele- phone off the hook during the New Year weekend because she was being inundated with calls from sick Indiana. The union claims that hospital officials failed to notify the local coroner of the deaths as re- quired by tew. Mr. Plain laid he wants an inquest Into the three deaths specifically and federal health services in the area generally. "Staff members from the union recently returned from the Bed Lake area and they de- scribe the health services situa- tion there as said the spokesman. "We feel that a coroner should be chosen and a jury empanelled to investigate the entire situation." In Sioux Lookout, 150 miles northwest of Thunder Bay, Dr. W. G. Goldthorp, director of the Indian hospital here, said the outbreak is waning. He said the situation Is under control and denied that facilities and staff in the area were inad- equate. He said flu epidemics can be, expected to cost lives In Iso- lated, cold communities, espe- cially among older, weaker In- dians. The victims in this case were an 89-year-old man found dead in his unheated home at North Spirit Lake, a 72-year-old woman who died in hospital and another elderly woman who died at home. No health care lack OTTAWA (CP) Living con- ditions had more to do with the Influenza deaths of three north- western Ontario Indians than any lack of health care, health department spokesman said today. The spokesman said federal medical services in the area in- clude a 75-bed hospital at Sioux Lookout, medical services to each community provided by two general physicians from the University of Toronto and a ro- tation of from one to three resi- dent doctors. Smaller communitie have ei- ther satellite health stations where nurses and doctors visil regularly or community health trained in basic medicine.
