Qiild abuse fines opposed 11 CALGARY ICP) The Al- berta Medical Association fav- ors a central registry for child abuse cases but opposes fines for not reporting such cases, Dr. R. M. Blake, chairman of the Child Health Committee, says. Commenting on legislation given first reading in the leg- islature Friday permitting fines of up to ?500 for anyone fail- ing to report suspected child abuse casss, Dr. Blake said: "All the proposed changes to the Child Welfare Act are con- sistent with the position of the Alberta Medical Association except the proposal for convic- tion and fines." The AMA favors "some sort of interdisciplinary program between doctors, social workers and psychiatrists" to rehabili- tate parents cf battered chil- dren, he said in an interview. Rehabilitation treatment and education" should be empha- sized rather than punishment. Once an interdisciplinary program is established by the department of health and so- cial development, an education- al program should be organized for the public and medical pro- fession to encourage the report- ing of suspected child abuse. Dr. Biake said once the pub- lic knew something constructive was to be done, it would likely report such cases.

CDC move to Vancouver is reiterated By IAN HUNTER Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Urban Affairs Minister Ron Basford said Thursday that it is inconceivable that the headquarters of the Canada Development Corpo- ration will be located anywhere but in Vancouver. He said the directors of the corporation, set up by the gov- ernment to encourage Canadian investment in Canadian enter- prises, are obliged to act on the statement of Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau in No- vember of 1971 that the CDC headquarters should move to Vancouver within two years. It was no more expression of a wish, Basford declared in an interview, but a "directive" of cabinet to the directors who were appointed by the govern- ment. The minister, who represents the riding of Vancouver Centre, also angrily critifized CDC chairman Anthony Hampson, of Montreal, for suggesting that one of the factors to be consid- ered by directors In deciding whether to move is the "eco- nomic climate" in under a New Democratic Party government. "The nature of the provincial government has absolutely nothing to do with it." sears Monday On WHILE QUANTITIES LAST PERSONAL SHOPPING ONLY 1 SPECIALS Cola Glasses.
