Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta WMlnwdoy. Junn 17, 1770 THK UTHBRIDGE HERALD Conservative MLAs Have Pay Cheques TORONTO (CP) The Globe and Mail says 14 Conservative members of the Ontario legisla- ture have government appoint- ments that pay as much as a year in addition to their salaries as MLAs. Robert Nixon and Donald MacDonald, leaders of the oppo- sition Liberal and New Demo- c.atic parties, said such ap- pointments are public knowl- edge but that "this is a useful reminder to the public." Four of the positions men- tioned by the newspapers pay and are held by: J. Boyer first vice-chairman of Ontario Hydro, who descibes his job as demanding and is quoted is Eskimos Dance In Alaska Day At Expo OSAKA, Japan (AP) Alaska celebrated its special day at Expo '70 here with Mrs. Keith H. Miller, the governor's wife, as guest of honor. Six Eskimos from Alaslva and Canada, wearing traditional dress, performed welcoming dances. Mrs. Miller later visited the Canadian pavilion, among oth- ers saying he works at It four days a week when the house is not sitting. A. Johnston (Parry chairman of the Ontario Northland Transportation Com- mission, who says he was ap- pointed because he is a good ad- ministrator. Root (Wellington-Duf- vice-chairman of the On- tario Water Resources Commis- sion, who says he recently put in an day and seldom charges the government for out-of-pocket expenses. Rowntree (York chairman of the Ontario Science Centre. One member of the cabinet, Femand Guindon, minister without portfolio, also has a (sec- ond government job. He gets a year as chairman of the St. Lawrence Parks Commis- sion, as an MLA, as a minister and a rep- resentation allowance, bringing his salary to A spokesman for Premier Ro- barts's office, discussing the practice, said legislation estab- lishing many boards and com- missions calls for representa- tion from the legislature, the newspapers says. It says some of the MLAs in- volved supported the practice, in interviews, on the grounds that elected members bring a broader view to the jobs and represent the general public in- terest rather than departmental or private interests.

"CN" on masks refers to a type of powerful tear gas used by Japanese police to control crowds. Youth-Activity Centre Planned CALGARY (CP) The Kins- men Club of Calgary and the Calgary Exhibition and Stam- pede plan a youth-acti- vity centre on the Stampede grounds. Construction Mill start next fall, with the Kinsmen hoping to raise the money in eight years through profits from a car raffle the club conducts each year at the stampede. The building will include a 300-seal, auditorium-type thea- tre with a stage, screen and projection booth and meeting rooms. Bill Watson, past president of the Kinsmen Club, said there is a particular need for a large centre for youth activities in the city. Better Hospital Quality Care Medical Profession Cautioned WINNIPEG (CP) The con- sumers of hospitals services are on the vorgc of applying pres- sure for belter quality of care ajxl for greater accountability for tho expenditure of public money. This is the view of Dr. Leon- ard Bradley, executive director of the Camjian Council on Hos- pital Accreditation, who cau- tioned the medical profession Tuesday to begin now to pro- ride ways for ensuring that this pressure is responded to. Dr. Bradley said labor unions and the federal government in the United Slates have already gat deeply into the setting of medical standards. It was only a matter of time before the same kind of press u r e would be exerted in this coun- try. He maintained that no "bu- reaucracy" will be able to do a proper job of monitoring the standards of hospital care the way the accreditation council now does. About 500 of the hospitals in Canada participate in the accreditation program. That meant that 56 per cent of hospital beds are in the pro- gram and two out of every three patients who go to hospi- tal occupy beds in institutions participating. The council is a jsint effort of medical and hos- pital associations. Dr. Bradley told a news con- ference later that complaints by the public about hospital stan- dards should be channelled through the local hospital board with a further stage of appeal to the provincial medical asso- ciation. He said the council Is not equipped to handle such mat- ters. The accreditation status of hospitals is published annually in professional journals, out of the general public's reach. He conceded that there are val- id arguments for publication of changes in a hospital's status. He estimated that 10 or 12 hospitals, have their accredita- tion lifted yearly, mainly due to inadequate standards of care. Usually hospitals act quickly when their accreditation is threatened. Dr. Bradley said lie thinks the compos i t i o n of hospital boards is not nearly what the public expects it to be in terms of reflecting the ethnic, econo- mic, social and cultural make- up of the community served. The consumer pressure lo have boards Include disadvan- lagcd and other segments of tire community had not yet become as strong in this country as in the United .States where it had been stimulated by federal leg- islation. Dr. Bradley said the coun- cil is extending its accredita- tion activities to the psychia- tric hospitals eight or nine out of 112 are accredited and tills year to nursing homes, convalescent and chronic care institutions, of which there are some Six of the latter Institutions have been surveyed and 100 probably will be done by the year end. Three were recom- mended for accreditation last week but the council wt yet met to denl with them. The Canadian Medical Asso- ciation is one of the medical groups which sponsors the ac- crcdilation program. The association also took nots of criticism thai doctors know too little about the economics of hospital care. It approved resolutions in line with propo- sals of the federal task forces on health care costs. The resolutions called for pa- tients to be made aware of (he cost of medical services receiv- ed, for doctors (o lie given courses in medical economics and for hospitals to keep pa- tients and doctors aware of Ihn cost of tile facilities and ser- Inflationary Increases To Be Aired WASHINGTON (AP) Presi- he not be i d e nt i f i e d, said dent Nixon will announce plans j "things aren't locked up to set up a commission, without forma] enforcement po'.vers, to publicize inflationary wage and price increases, a high adminis- tration source said Tuesday.
