S. LETHBRIDCE, ALBERTA Ask obouf Phologfciy Tho lent thol clicngei with 1ht light. the legislature By GREG MclNTYRE Herald Staff Writer EDMONTON As Hie throne speech debate in the Alberta legislature winds toward an end Friday, the question is where's the opposition? Debate over the banning of the movie: A Clock- work Orange in Alberta was a typical example of the style of battle the legislature has seen since it opened March 2. Questioning of government action was initialed by the lone New Democratic Party MLA, Grant Not- ley. Mr. Nollcy asked whether Warner Brothers, the firm that owns distribution rights, has launched an appeal against the Alberta film censor board ban. No, replied Labor Minister Bert Hohol, and the government will follow regular procedure regarding A Clockwork Orange. The owner has 30 days to appeal the board ruling. Is the government planning to repeal censorship legislation, the NDP MLA asked. A special committee is studying the whole area of censhorship the minister replied "but it is not our intention to repeal." In the exchange, however, the minister revealed that effective immediately, censorship has been trans- ferred from the department of labor to the depart- ment of culture, youth and recreation, where as an art form it more properly belongs. The Social Credit contribution to the debate was slight. Walter Buck Clover Bar) asked whether cen- sorship isn't contrary to the new government's Al- berta Bill of Rights. Premier Peter Lougheed replied "it may be" but the matter can't be decided until the committee hands in its report. The .only oilier Socred contribution was a joke by Gordon Taylor, MLA for Dnimlieller and a former cabinet minister, that "isn't the government concern- ed ha ha that seeing the banned film might "pollute the minds" of members of the censor board. The impression left, and the same impression left by many exchanges during the 45-minule question period that begins every .day of the session, was that: the government is doing something about the problem review committee, transfer of authority between departments, that the lone NDP member is concerned; and that the Socreds really don't mind much if things stay the way they are. The Socreds come off looking more conservative than the Conservatives. Marshall Delaney, film reviewer for Canada's Saturday Night Magazine says the book by Anthony Burgess is better than the movie, but "it's not hard to recognize A Clockwork Orange as one of those breakthrough movies which make important changes in the cinema." Mr. Delaney predicts the movie will be hailed by reviewers across the land and "no doubt people will line up to see it." Mr. Motley in recent weeks, rather than the Soc- reds, has revealed himself as the man with the well- researched question. The Socreds waning as a force on the federal scene are rumored to also be giving up the ghost on the provincial front. No one would be surprised to see a few Alberta Socred MLAs cross the floor to sit with the majority Tory government. One opinion is lhat Opposition leader Harry Strom is going through the motions before bowing out in a year or so.

The eastern port of Thunder Bay stockpiles grain to prepare for the problem of mother na- ture, and it should be donc in the west, he told 50 agribust- nessmen at a grain handling and marketing seminar. There is also no reason why the little port of Churchill, which is a very good safety valve for the expensive seaway system, shouldn't have 20 mil- lion bushels on hand. Without the stockpiles of grain at the export facility, it means a constant movement of grain from the farm to the port. Mr. Hamilton said there has been a long-standing fond be- tween the railway companies and the grain industry in Can- ada, It probably goes back to Crowsnest Rates, he said. These are the freight rates set !w legislation in 1398 for the subsidy payment or relief of freight rates for certain com- modities. The railways tell the Palliser group that they are willing to meet any challenge, whether it is coal, potash or coal oil, but they want the other side to give just a little bit too. "The basic problem at Van- couver as we sec it is they political unity but for God 'itill trying to move grain out' there boxcar by he said. "There isn't one terminal at Vancouver that can take one train load of wheat or any kind of grain for that matter. railways have to break ttiat train and then their prob- lems start to compound." Breaking a train means tak- ing any number of cars from one long train and shuttling them to the various teminals to unload the grain. Western Canada is not get- ting a fair shake on spending for g r ain t r a nsp ort ati on, be said, when tranportation is crucial to the industry. This is why Palliser has met with (lie three Prairie province governments and have said "we are not worried about liav- sake let's have a little eco- nomic unity in here and yon 'cliows go with one voice to Ottawa on some things." Transportation should be one of the things Ibe Prairie gov- ernments are totally unified about, he said. Mr. Hamilton said Palliser is looking for long range plans which will benefit thtc total in- dustry. "We are not looking at a two- price system or a LIFT opera- tion. We want to see a little money put in hopper cars or facilities, something that will work for the next 20 he said. "This money like LIFT and the present two-price system is like pouring sand down a rat be said.

The Herald's weekly Fri- day farm page has been dis- continued, with all features being incorporated in The Chinook, The M u n i c Spat I'lanning Commission is expected to 3j> proach city council in the near future with a recommended solution to tlie problem of il- legal basement suites. The subject was brought up hy Alderman Chick Chichester, MFC chairman. ;tt Wednes- day's commission meeting. He suggested the city adver- tise to have nil people owning basement suites ami renting them without a permit apply lo the MPC for a permit within either 30 or GO days.

By JOE MA Herald Staff Writer Premier Peter Longhecd's government apparently has con- vinced the Leth- bridge and Area Menial Health Planning Coun- cil and (he Ca- nadian Mental Health Associa- tion th at it means business w hen talking about the pro- vision of more mental health facilities in His province. After studying the draft cf tha new mental health act, sched- uled to be put through in the current legislature, and the statements made by Neil Craw- ford, Iho minister of health and serial development, one cannot help hoping for the best and prupai'ing for the worst, Both the planning council and the CMHA call the draft act con- troversial. In Hie act, a mental health facility means any hospi- tal, insti Lilt ion, mental hcatlh centre, remand centre nr any otficr place designated by (he minister for the care, observa- tion or control of a mentally- disordered person. In line the Blair Report on mental health treatment, the act calls for regionnlizntion and centralization of mental health facilities. The sentence reading, "Per- sons from one region will not be treated in another region's NEW ond USED MUSKLAND WE TAKE GRAINI facilities without the agreement of the administrator of the ser- vices in the regions concern- is almost certain to invite criticism. ft is broad daylight that Ed- monton and Calgary have the hest facilities in the province. Almost certainly, local pa- tients with serious mental dis- orders will have to be sent to ou'side facilities, since the only facility southern Alberta lias is the 21-bed psychiatric unit at flie Municipal Hos- pital and it is not a custodial ward. This applies also to over- flow patients, unless adequate facilities are established right here iu Lethhridge. Problems stem from there, for it is common knowledge that Calgary facilities, for instance, will give priority to Calgary pa- tients. As long as seven years ago. the then health minister said 50 to 80 psychiatric were needed at the LMH, It was only last year southern Alberlans saw 21 heels. Not even that (lie Albei'tn Hospitals at Raymond and Claresholm were recently de- certified, and (heir patients had to be accommodated else. The time span elapsed since the 50 to fid-bed statement gave the present government a good excuse lo say that a new study of the health services delivery system was in order before it could take any aclion. That apparently was neces- sary. But nothing lias been heard of the study, supposed to be completed last month. One can only sympathize wilh the hopeless statement of a planning council member: get politicians into our council, because we are no match for these Added lo it was that not a single Tory was elected south of Calgary in the Conservative sweep to power. The CT.IHA estimates lhat halt a million Alberlans or one in every four has suffered men- tal disorder at least once in their lifetime. Give n southern Alberta's share with a population o( between and de- pending on the exact boun- daries the figure is that around southern Adr- ians will need mental health care at least once in their life- time. With the coming near of "Fu- ture it is only reason- able to assume that the need for more menial health facil- ities will be growing. The treatment of mental pa- lients is only pnvl of the prevention and after care are equally important. The burden of prevention and after caro now rests almost exclusively on volunteer citizens' groups such as HID CMHA. One cannot help but deplore the tendency that governments at various levels are withdrawing from financial support lo these groups. Sister M. Clarissa, the presi- dent of the CMHA southern Al- berta region for (he past two years, says without after care approximately one third c( mental patients will suffer re- lapse. Prevention is better than treatment and the CMHA car- ries out a variety of education- al programs. Yet the CMHA has serious financial problems. For one, the city of Leth- bridge may refuse to g i v o grants; and HID United Appeal has repeatedly failed to reach its objectives, which means the CMHA, as a member agency, will receive less funds. The acute shortage of mental health facilities in southern Al- berta can be demonstrated by the faot that potential mental patients have only the 21 bed psychiatric unit and I lie volunteer workers to count on for prevent ion, treatment and after-care. Speaking at the CMlfA and the Alberta Hospital Associa- tion annual meetings, Mr. Crawford said priority will bo given to the provision of more mental health facilities. One can only hope that after the act has become law, the government will get to doing il: politicians are famous for making promises and nol keeping them. Perhaps Mr. L o u g heed, a prime minister hopeful in the years to come, will prove lie is the man.
