Health officials are alarmed Diphtheria rampant among western Indians OTTAWA An alarming number of diphtheria cases have been uncovered recently among western Indians and apparently spawned by overcrowded living Dr. Bill Watt of Edmonton said Friday. the disease may be more widespread than health statistics said Dr. chief epidemiologist for the Alberta health department. He and Dr. John the federal government's chief epi- agreed in separate interviews they are confronted by a serious public health problem with no easy solutions. They were commenting on statistics tabled in the Com- mons last week showing that diphtheria cases in Canada more than doubled between 1972 and from 68 to more than half of which were cases in northern Alberta. The infectious disease does not appear to have caused any recent deaths in said Dr. Watt. None the it was capable of killing five to 10 per cent of those infected. He also said the number of cases detected by his depart- ment will at least for a couple of years. But Dr. Watt believes the apparent predominance of diph- theria in northern Alberta is accounted for. in by his de- partment's testing programs. bring these higher number of cases upon by going out looking for he said. the Yukon and the Northwest with large populations of Indian and reported only a total of 10 cases in 1973. must have more cases than he said. British where a program to test ill native people for diphtheria has reported 51 cases in 1973 compared with 11 in 1972. The provinces yearly average between 1963 and 1972 was about five cases. The disease was a widespread public health menace before effective vaccination programs were begun in 1925. The previous cases were reported in Canada for every of population. it and other diseases were the leading causes of death in children under 12 years. The diphtheria bacteria now rampant among native people is not as virulent as other varieties of the said Dr. Davies of the federal health protection branch. This made detection difficult because many infected people will trans- mit the disease but do not show its symptoms. The diphtheria bacteria is spread from infected lesions on the skin or by infection that runs from perforated ear he said. The disease itself can be treated successfully with anti-toxin agents and penicillin. Dr. Watt said overcrowded conditions coupled with poor sanitation and health practices made it difficult to eradicate the disease. No authority given to borrow money Refused baptism Marjory Reynolds said in Toronto that Rev. William a minister of the Anglican Church of Canada has refused to baptize her son Darryl. Mrs. Reynolds said the minister is in effect trying to them into attend- ing church. Court changes rules EDMONTON Fred former municipal affairs told a judicial inquiry Friday he had not given authority for anyone in the Alberta Housing Corporation to borrow money in Germany. The testimony came during the fifth day of testimony at the headed by Mr. Justice J. M. called by the provincial government to investigate alleged wrong doing by former and present personnel and associates of the government agency. Mr. Colborne told commission counsel Roderick McLennan that at that he had just taken over the cabinet he would not have acted on his own initiative to approve such borrowing. He said he would have discussed it with his deputy minister and probably then have taken it up with the provincial treasurer. Bob O r y s i u former executive director of the testified earlier he had the impression he had the authority to negotiate a million loan to finance land assembly and to pledge the province's guaranty. WOULD REMEMBER I had been involved in negotiations concerning the I certainly would Mr. Colborne said. The former minister said he had never heard of the particular loan. Mr. Colborne said he made a statement late in 1970 to the effect that the province would have to go to the open money foreign it to borrow funds for housing if such funds were not available from central mortgage and housing corpora tion. He said the federal mortgage agency was the traditional source of AHC apart from provincial financing. The AHC burrowed the money from a West German bank in 1969 to finance land assembly for the Mill Woods housing development in Edmonton I known jbout the German I wouldn't have made a statement like or I would have qualified Mr. Colborne said He also said he would have inquired whether the money was available locally before authorizing any foreign borrowing MEALS ON WHEELS AT NOMINAL COST For Further Information Phone 327-7990 Member of Community Social Service EDMONTON two surprising decisions Alberta's highest court changed the guidelines it had set in 1970 for the sentencing of heroin traffickers. In separate the appeal division of the Supreme Court of Alberta reduced to three years from eight a sentence given to a 17 year old youth and upheld a three year term for a 20 year old man. The reduced sentence was granted to Keith Raymond Joseph Tyler of Edmonton who was convicted in March of selling a capsule of heroin to an undercover policeman. At the time of Mr Justice Donald Bowen of the supreme court trial division said he wanted remove a threat to An appeal court ruled Mr. Justice Bowen had placed too much emphasis on punishment and deterrence and that the eight year term was excessive in the circumstances. In the other the court said a three year sentence was appropriate for a man convicted of two counts of selling heroin. Brian Allen also of was found guilty by a supreme court jury of one charge and then pleaded guilty to the second. Both involved selling a capsule of heroin to an undercover agent. PREVIOUS CONVICTION Mr. who had a previous conviction for trafficking in was given the three year term by Mr Justice William a member of the appeal division who was filling in as a trial judge. In that Mr. Justice Sinclair said he had to consider that the undercover policeman approached Mr. Sand to make the purchase. In a bid by the crown to have the sentence the appeal division said it found no error in Mr. Justice Sinclair's decision. Ever since a landmark decision in 1970 in which the court ruled deterrence was the important element of sentencing in drug trafficking the appeal court has approved or imposed sentences ranging between five and 10 years in cases involving heroin. The three year sentence was the lowest sentence ever approved by the appeal although some judges of the district court and supreme court trial division have imposed four year terms that were not appealed.
