Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 2, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - TH1 ICTHBRIDOE HERALD ~ Friday, March 2, 1973 fLABOK CLUB CORNER 2nd AVE. and 13th ST. N. EVENING ENTERTAINMENT IN THE CLUBROOMS FRIDAY and SATURDAY , "PHIL LETHBRIDGE" W Members and their guests onlyl " m Alberta gov't challenged on civil rights issue 4 4 EDMONTON (CP) - Alberta's Progressive Conservative government, which considers itself a champion of civil liberties, has been challenged to prove that its concern in that field is genuine. The Social Credit party, whisked out of office 18 months ago, says the government's credibility in human rights has be- come highly questionable. It says at least three recent cases of unwarranted government meddling into the lives of private citizens is the cause. Opposition members already have introduced one no-confidence motion during the current session of the legislature, charging the government with violating its new Bill of Rights. KEY 73 presents "UNHOOKED" A Teen Challenge Film by DAVE WILKERSON GENERAL STEWART SCHOOL on MARCH 3, 1973 ALL WELCOME (No Admission) Service still comes first at Canadian Western cancoan uuesTem naruraLGas company LimueD Serving Albertans Since 1912. J The motion was beaten down easily by the. 49 Conservatives in the 75-seat assembly. tTovernment-ordered background and personality chocks into three Slave Lake, Alta., area men sparked the motion. But, the opposition says there have been other similar cases during the Conservatives' short reign. The Slave Lake controversy started late In January when Attorney-General Merv Leltch revealed he had asked the RCMP to do the checks. The original request had come from Al Adair, minister without portfolio responsible for northern development, who had been asked to clear up an ugly public debate raging in the area, 150 miles north of Edmonton. JOINED DEBATE Slave Lake has been designated a depressed area and Is receiving massive federal and provincial financial aid. The three men -investigated had been critical of government programs there and at least two of them were deeply involved in the public debate. Both ministers later apologized, Mr. Leltch explaining that it was wrong to have used the police even though the government was obligated to learn more about the three men. He said It is government's Job to gauge reaction to programs and part of this job involves assessing how much weight should be given to the criticism of various people.

When the Slave Lake Incident was reaching Its climax, Gordon Taylor (SC-Drumheller) charged tlw government with locking another men in a mental institution because he had become a bother. Mr, Taylor said Frank Joseph Edward Davy of Edmonton was arrested at the workmen's compensation board offices and taken away for a mental examination.. Mr. Davy, said Mr. Taylor, merely had been hounding the board to help him have a back injury repaired. Premier Peter Lougheed has said Mr. Taylor's allegations are unfounded and has ordered a judicial inquiry into the case. The inquiry will begin March 20. Social Credit also has been roasting the government for its handling of the Communal Property Act and the-case of an Edmonton doctor who was charged last year with fraud and malpractice. The charges against the doctor later were withdrawn. jRESTRlCTS LAND The Communal Property Act restricts the amount of land that can be purchased by the Hutterite brethem and was to be repealed today. The government had realized.that the act is against the provincial Bill of Rights, but some opposition spokesmen say if that's the case, it should have been repealed before Jan. 1, the day the Bill of Rights became law. I The malpractice incident involved Dr. John David Craig who operates a skid road clinic for alcoholics and drug addicts. His files were seized when he was charged with defrauding the Alberta health insurance commission of about $40. Later, Dr. Craig was charjzed with responsibility in the deaths of four patients who had been receiving methadone, a substitute for heroin. Government critics say that Dr. Craig was charged merely to allow police access to his files on drug addicts. They say that the fact that all charges were withdrawn is proof of this. The series of incidents has been embarrassing for the Conservatives, especially considering the emphasis they placed on human rights during the last provincial election campaign. The Bill of Rights was the personal campaign promise of Mr. Lougheed. Much of the government's credibility now rests on the out- come of the inquiry into the Davy case, But, even if the government emerges, from that with a clean slate, there are in- dications that the Slave Lake affair, and possibly the Craig case, will be around to haunt it for quite a while.
