2 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Salurdoy, Juno 20, 1970 Impressed With Efforts Of Native People _ __ _ ian Time Alberta Doctors Called On Carpet By HElilf .IOIINSON Staff Writer John Munro, federal minis' ter of health and welfare scheduled to speak at the Iiv dian Association of Alberta con- ference Wednesday, fina 11 j freed himself from commit- ments in Ottawa and arrived late Friday afternoon. FORT ClllPEWYAN, Alia. (CP) The young people in this Indian and Metis commun- ity are concerned about its fu tiire following the latest tragedy to befall it. An oil spill earlier this month from the Fort McMurray plant of Great Canadian Oil Sands Ltd. drifted down into Lake Ath- abasca and forced closure of the commercial fishing season on the lake, which supported about 100 wage-earners in the com- munity of The spill could hardly have come at a worse time. This was the first year of operation for a fishing co-operative under com- munity control. In addition, fish prices had gone up because of pollution in lakes eslewhere in the country. There are few enough jobs as It is in Fort Chipewyan, where the majority of native and Metis people exist on welfare. The trapping industry was dealt a fatal blow three years ago when the Bennett dam was completed at Hudson's Hope, B.C., and lowered the water table in the marshy muskrat and beaver breeding areas here. The breeding areas are hundreds of miles downstream from the dam on the Peace River system, but the effect is nonetheless real. The entire community once made a living from trapping, but synthetic furs and fluctuat- ing prices long ago made their inroads and dealt one of the earliest blows to Fort Chipew- yan. Harold Cardinal, president of (be 1AA. introducing the min- ister, said the process of ac- culturation had now progressed to where Indians and whites shared certain characteristics. Mr. Munro, he noted, had ar- rived on "Indian time." Because of Mr. Munro's tight schedule, the conference com- mittee arranged for him to speak to the crowd assembled for the afternoon race meet. Speaking from (he race track, Mr. Munro delivered a nine minute speech that dealt mostly with communication be- tween Indians and the federal government. Speaking of the "memorable and historic meeting" in June at wlu'ch the Indian "Ked Paper" had been presented to Hie government, he said he felt new procedures for communi- cation would develop from the meeting. "These will be based on tech- nirjues whereby the ment and the Indians will work he said. He said he was impressed by th.o efforts of the Indian peopl to improve their living cohdi lions. "You need help from al levels of government and I'm sure that all levels will re spond and give understandin, and help in all your requests.' The idea of better cornmuni cations between Indians am the government also applied to JOHN MUNRO PICKING A WINNER AT THE KAINAI RACE MEET Meets Wage Restraint Resistance HALE OPTICAL LTD Gary Martin Dispensing Optician 307 6th St. S. 327-7152 Trudeau Spreads The Gospel HANOVER, Oat (CP) Prime M i, ju t s t e r Trudeau preached of wage re- straint Frior.y in a series of dia logues across southwestern On tario.

The reception was more friendly during the evening in this farming and manufacturing town, where he replied to a ser ies of local economic complaints by outlining the government's strategy against inflation. Alcohol Leads By Wide Margin OTTOTA (CP) Students using mind-stimulating concoc- tions still choose alcohol by a wide margin, say studies of high school and college use of substances ranging from alcohol to glue and LSD. The studies conducted in 1968 and 1969 are appended to the in- terim report of the LeDain com- mission on non-medical use of drugs, tabled in the Commons Friday. One says 88.5 per cent of Can- ada's high school students have had at least one drink in the last six months. This compares with an esti- mated use of marijuana and hashish at least once in the last Peanuts'Gang in their "cA'Boy Warned Chariiellroivri' A MHOML MSErVl PiCRKS KlfiS t fsm eOtttR FitWS FflESUiTAIXS NEXT.ATTRACTION je Cinema six months, in selected spots across the country, ranging from 5.9 per cent in the Pem- broke-Renfrew area of the Ot- tawa valley to 19.7 per cent for British Columbia. The statistics are based on as- sorted independent research projects not necessarily con- nected with the commission's work. Among high schools, for ex- ample, studies by the same re- searchers in 1968 say that 40.3 per cent of a sample of To- ronto students drank alcohol at least once in the previous six months. Figures for 1969 show, on the basis of various sizes of sam- ples, that the Montreal average was 48.1, Halifax 39.9, North Vancouver 44.4 and British Col- umbia 415.2. AVERAGE NOT EXPLAINED There was no explnation for the national average being much higher than most specific areas. The national sample body was On high school use of amphe- tamines, or speed, surveys in 1963 and 1969 estimate that 7.3 par cent of Toronto students had used them at least once in the last six months compared with 9.7 for Quebec province, 3.7 in B.C. and 3.6 per cent on a na- tional average. The high school figures for LSD or acid ranged from per cent at Rcgina to three per ceil at Montreal and .5 per cent at Fort William, now part of Thunder Bay. The B.C. average was (i.e. Xo national overage was available. In between, he visited Guelpb, where he talked with young peo- ple at a youth hostel, anc Douglas Point, where he in- spected the controversial nuclear power plant owned by Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. At Talbotville the prime min- ister accused members of strong labor unions of trying to take all they can from the econ- omy to the detriment of the weak and the poor who suffer most from inflation. The plant workers belong to the United Automobile Workers union. If organized .labor demands 20-per-cent wage hikes in an economy expanding at the rate of five per cent a year, he told the men, "somebody's going to get screwed and it's not going to be you." The economy could pay back only the increase in productivity put into it and if the strong ins- isted on taking out more than their share, then the those on fixed incomes or pen- suffer because of it. He said it is the government's Job to protect these people. Three workers he talked to struck back determinedly, maintaining that the federal government was asking labor to bear the brunt of restraint. BOUND BY CONTRACT They also argued that while management, industry and pro- fessionals might accept wage restraint for a limited period, ,abor would be bound to settle- ments by a three-year contract, whether or not inflation had >een beaten. Mr. Tnideau suggested sign six-month or one-year tracts which, he vould give the government all ,he time it needed to curb infla. ion. He said if labor had co-op- erated with the government last unrmer inflation now would be the area of health services, h said. He noted tbn drrarniicnl health is endeavoring to i grade the service and have operate on a "consultative a cooperative basis." The im portant thing was to keep th government informed.'' Mr. Munro also cxtendct greetings to the conferenc from Jean Chretien, ministe of Indian affairs and northern development, who had been scheduled to speak at the con ference but was unable to at tend. In an interview, Mr. Munrc said the final report of thlying funds for research on marijuana. It is being grown and allocated for research by [ovemment employed scien- jsts. Some research by outside irms is also being carried out under government support, he >aid. He also stressed the need for education programs, but em- ihasized that any such pro- !ram must be backed up by acts. If an information pro- gram is technically wrong, he said, it will be undermined and do more harm than good. "The whole problem is how iest to deal with drug abuse; no one condones he said. He also said an equally seri- ous problem is that of misuse of drugs available in drugstores )y adults. No further controls are anticipated on these drugs, s said, the main problem xmg one of laxity in the dis- tribution of those available by prescription. He would make no comment in a recommendation in the LeDain report that the RCMP refrain from using entrapment and physical violence in drug cases. The premature leak of the LeDain report to Time maga- zine played no part in the tim- ing of the government's tabling of the report in the Commons, he said. The source of (lie leak has not been identified as yet, he added. He touched briefly on. Indian health services, noting again the need for improved com- munications. He sugges ted health liaison officers appoint- ed by the IAA would travel to Ottawa to discuss the imple- mentation of better co-ordi- nated health programs. Triple-Trailer Tracks Okayed CALGARY (CP) Ken Ed- wards of Calgary, president of the Alberta Motor Transport Association, said Friday ha is pleased that the provincial gov- ernment has decided to allow triple trailer trucks to use Highway 2 between Calgary and Edmonton. The decision was announced Friday by Highways Minister Gordon Taylor, following a nine month trial of the units from July, 1969, to last March. 10.

He hoped such a conference could be held by September, which would give the govern- ment three months to meet its year-end deadline for beating inflation. In Hanover ho repealed the i message after the government's tight monetary and fiscal con- j trols had been blamed tor a list of complaints concerning tour- ism, farming and furniture manufacturing.

In Is res ting Sands of Gold in gold, available at EDMONTON (CP) 'Hie Al- berta College of Physicians and Surgeons Friday found Ilircc SLony Plain doctors guilty of unbecoming professional con- duct. The Ihree, Dr. Viljcon Krlt- zingor, Dr. II. C. Ringham, ant Dr. A. R. White of the Stony Plain Medical Clinic, were call- ed before the college's counci for disciplinary proceedings af- ter the Alberta Health Care In- surance Commission discover- ed that it called "abnormal practices" when checking the physicians claim submissions. The charge read that during 1969 the doctors submitted ac- counts and collected from the AHCIC fees in excess of those to which they were entitled ac- cording to the college's fee schedule. The AHCIC said it found the doctors had been charging Sun- day or holiday fees of when they should have been charg- ing for repeat visits to pa- tients in the Good Samaritan Nursing Home. James Falconer. AHCIC chairman, said the specific charges were "only a partial consideration of the entire case and we are looking into lieir entire billing practice and the results have not been corn- dieted." Dr. Kritriner, the mayor of lie community 20 miles west of Edmonton, was appointed at- ending physician at the nurs- ing home in 1968. About 60 per cent of the residents in the wnie were patients of the three doctors. The college's discipline com- mittee recommended that Dr. Kritzinger and Dr. Ringham be -uspended from practice for six months and each fined and that Dr. White be suspend- ed for three months with a fine if 8500. They assessed hearing costs to the three physicians. After further consideration, he council decided "the im- position of the period of sus- >ension be withheld on condi- tion that In relation to each of the charges sustained, t h e physicians make payments to tlio Alberta Health Care Insurance Commission of the monies which represent the dif- ference between the amounts charged and the ap- plicable. Life Term For Murder Of Dancer NEW WESTMINSTER (CP) Graydon Bruce, 21, of North Vancouver was sen- tenced Friday night to life im- prisonment for the murder of Vancouver nightclub dancer Jacqueline Ann Lampen. An all-male jury reached the verdict after seven hours of deliberation. Seconds before the verdict was announced, Bruce's wife Brigifta, across the courtroom and kiss- ed him, Miss Lampen. was shot in the basement of her suburban Burnaby home April 19 with a sawn-off .22-calibre rifle. It was the fourth in a series of shootings police at first be- lieved were connected with ilh'c- t drag dealers. Earlier in the trial, Jurors saw the dead Ionian's seven- year-old daughter point a 'inger at Bruce, identifying him as the man who came to her lome the night of the killing. Police testified they believed the killer was a "hired gun- man" who had not known his victim. Bruce showed no signs of emotion when sentence was massed. Defence lawyer Terry Rob- ertson said he is considering an appeal.
