The plan, incorporating a new concept in auto insurance in which penalty premiums are assessed for bad driving habits rather than for accidents, has come into effect on the government- stipulated March 1 startup date with thousands of mo- torists still not insured, none of the planned 28 claims centres completed and the validity of the legislation creating the scheme facing a challenge in the B C.

One of the common symptoms of amphetamine abuse is paranoia or delusion of persecution, he said. In an interview later Dr. Schuster said U.S. Army medical authorities have become "more critically aware" of the hazards of the stimulant Dr Everett Ellmwood, a professor of psychiatry at Duke University, said in an interview the deaths of two or three European bicyclers have been attributed to use of the stimulant and he has been told of the death of one U.S. professional football player in which amphetamine abuse was suspected. MUCH TRAFFICKING Dr. Bruce Casselman. director of the drugs directorate of the ministry of health and welfare, said there is a substantial illicit traffic in amphetamines from underground laboratories Despite such problems, Norman Bortnick, vice- president and general manager of ICBC, says he has complete confidence that the massive, computerized insurance machine he and his staff has put together in 11 hectic months will function smoothly and handle the task of insuring 1.3 million vehicles "ICBC soon will be the big- gest' insurance company in says Mr. Bortnick, a 40-year-old accountant who was treasurer of Canada's first government-run auto insurance plan in Saskatchewan before being brought to B.C. by the New Democratic Party admin- istration of Premier Dave Barrett to head up Autoplan NEW CONCEPT Under the B.C. plan, vehicles and drivers are insured separately A major change, and the one making comparisons difficult, is that penalty premiums for accidents are removed from vehicle owners as such, but the new driver insurance, which comes into effect May 1, includes stiff penalties for drivers with bad driving records. Premiums for driving insur- ance, which must be carried by each of the more than two million drivers in the province, will range from for basic coverage up to for those with bad records. Driver premiums will be based on the number of demerit points assessed against a driver for traffic infractions other than parking offences. Electric fences may curb bears EDMONTON (CP) The use of electric fences to discourage bear raids on beehives in the Peace River area looks "very but the killing of bears by government employees is still necessary, the Alberta Fish and Wildlife director said this week. Gordon Kerr. in a speech to a meeting of the Canadian Wolf Defenders, said Fish and Wildlife officials killed 182 bears in the area last year and beekeepers with permits killed 200. Mr. Kerr estimated that before the Fish and Wildlife staff became involved in the program, beekeepers killed about 1 000 bears a year Raids by bears cost beekeepers last year, Mr. Ken- said. Alfalfa seed growers, who use bees to pollinate alfalfa grown for seed, also lost Mr Kerr said some farmers can be blamed for losing their livestock to wolves because their practices invite wolves to stick around. He urged farmers to bury the carcasses of animals that die from natural causes.
