Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 2, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta y, 1, WI THl LtTHBSIDOt HtPMO 23 in OTTAWA (CP) Canada is sill a backward wintry when it comes to family planning, says an expert on the subject. And there must be an increase in in- formation and clinical services to solve the problem. Dr. T. M. Roulslcm of Winni- peg, president ot tlie Family Planning Federation of Canada, said here that television, radio and newspapers-pcrhaps even comic strips-should be used to bring the message to Canadi- ans. "Only informed people have an opportunity to exercise free- dom ot said Dr. Roul- ston in a speech to the first na- tional conference on family planning. "I think the time lias come for us to lake a much more pos- itive attitude toward family planning and conception control, and tliis may mean a break from traditional forms of relay- ing informalion." While the federal govern men I has given a lead with its poll- No postal talks cies and money, the perform- ance of Canada's provincial and municipal governments has been "woeful."

Provincial Judge Carl Rolf, tlw senior provincial judge, in setting the fine, said he -was assessing the maximum be- cause of the size of the offence. Evidence produced by t h e 1 crown showed the firm raised, processed and marketed broiler chickens without having the required quota or permit from the Alberta Broiler Grow- ers Marketing Hoard. Judge Rolf was told that In bypassing the provincial legis- lation, the firm failed to pay [he required fee of one fiflh-oi- a-cent-a-pound for each bird raised on its farm at Crossfield during 1971.

Family planning services must be ex- panded in hospitals, clinics, through welfare services and at the "street level approach." A vital link, he said, is the public health nurse. y he a 11 h services must he improved and "the young must be offered services which are acceptable because ol sympathy, anonymity and com- petence While the federal government has taken the lead in policy and funding, it has been 'singularly lacking in innovation" in provid- ing services for Indians and Es- kimos who come under its juris- diction.

Karl Jellicoe, co-ordi- nating the recovery from the costly seven week coal strike, said Wednesday virtually all re- striclions on electricity use may >e lifted in a day or two. That will end the great candle boom m which housewives fran- ically stormed shops during ID days'of prolonged, jlackouts. Doctors suggest the blackouts nay bring an unforeseen in- c-e'asc in Britain's population. They will be watching the sta- istics closely in nine months' :imed.

But there was no outcry M the old British spirit of dogged patience prevailed, STRIKE COSTLY But the blackouts proved cosily. In addition to almost two million industrial workers laid off temporarily because of the blackouts, the country's nation- alized electricity organizalioas lost an estimated SC5 million in revenue.

As jubilant mind's moved inlo the pits again Monday, there was criticism by some opposi- tion politicians that the govern- ment was deliberately prolong- ing the blackouts in an attempt to emphasize that the miners were to blame. But government spokesmen denied tliis. By Tuesday, the flow of coal was increasing and this, com- bined with mild weather, brought a reduction in tho blackouts by Tuesday afternoon.
