Gordon Parke of Cache Creek. B.C. said cattlemen are against the subsidy because "over the long run a subsidy on beef will upset the normal balance of the industry and is a misuse of public funds." Canadian cattlemen want a reciprocal tariff placed on cattle from the United States, based on a proportionate quota system. says acting director Bob Cronin. "Like, 'you'll get sent to the or the bogeyman will get yoa, or something like that. "This sort of thing has never worked and never will the soft-spoken social worker said in an interview. Few return Mr. Cronin said things have changed so much at the IYC that the rate of recidivism is only 15 per cent. He said that when the school was a training school under the Federal Schools Act, there were 65 staff members to look after 220 youths. "All you could do then was just keep track of he said. Now there are 82 staff members and nine teachers to take care of 64 youths.

Several weeks before admittance, the youth and his family tour the facility. Questions are answered and the stories about Brannan Lake are laid to rest. "Most of our kids were poor students they just bombed out of the regular school said Mr. Cronin. "Another common behavior pattern is running. They tend to try to escape their emotional pain and hassle by running away. "There's no place here where a kid can be locked up. If we suspect he's going to run away we try to help him. "There's no treatment in locking a kid up because if you lock him up you take the responsibility to change away from him." Ratio low Frank Murphy, principal of Brannan Lake secondary school, said the student teacher ratio is one teacher to nine students. "That's rather high right now, it's usually less than he said. "Basically we try to find out where the boy was in school and take him as far and as fast as we can." "There's no magic solution to working with kids who have emotional said Mr. Cronin. "It's a long-term thing. After a boy has gone through the program he doesn't have 'cured' branded on his forehead. "We keep tabs on him for six months after release and if there are further problems, he might be readmitted. "We say we offer care, there's no 'cure' to the problems of growing up."
