Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Folurdov, May 13, 197? THS lETHBRIOOf HWAtD 21 Government acts on Blair report EDMONTON (CP) Non- medica'l personnel, such as psy- chologists, social workers and nurses, would be given partial power for committing persons for mental treatment under _a proposed new Mental .Heaiin Act, introduced in the legisla- ture. The proposed act says that two certificates of admission, one signed by a physician, the other by a non-medical person with qualifications, will be au- thority enough to have a per- son committed to a facility for mental treatment. Health minister Neil Craw- ford said non-medical person- nel mentioned would be li- censed by a board and would be given responsibility for ther- apy. "The act is, therefore, rec- ognizing the contribution which can be made to mental health services by those who have been well trained in the behav- ioral sciences." The proposed act, which in- corporates many of the recom- mendations of the 1968 Blair report on mental health, does away with the 72-hour enforced stay now required for patients being examined in mental in- stitutions. The act, if approved, would allow patients to leave a hospital after 12 hours, if cer- tificates of admission had nol been signed. Mr. Crawford said the idea ol the proposals is to "provide an improved quality of mental health services to the people of Alberta with greater speed and availability t h r o u g h out the province." Protection of the rights of in- dividual patients and the safety of the public both would be in- creased. Portions of the mental health act of 1964 have been retained In the bill, notably the review procedure where complaints against detention are heard by a tribunal. However, under the new system, said Mr. Craw- ford, this process would be available at "more frequent in- tervals." Mr. Crawford also said that DIVIDEND NOTICE NOTICE Ii hereby given that the Board of Directors of this Company has declared the One Hundred and Forty- fourth dividend upon the out- standing Ordinary Shares, payable on May 30th, 1972 fo the shareholders of record at the close of business on Monday, May 15th, 1972 in the amount of Twenly-six and one-quatrer Cents per share. DATED at Calgary, Alberta this 9th day of May, 1972. By Order of Ihe Board, A. J. SMITH Secretary ANNOUNCEMENT N. W. INVESTMENTS LTD. DICK BATEMAN Mr. Peter Ropchan, Presi- dent of NW Investments ttd. takes pleasure in confirming the appointment of Dick Bate- man as District Manager. Dick has twenty yenrs of experience in the financial field; first wilh a brokerage firm, then in life insurance and since 1962 in mutual lunds. Hn lias Ihn distinction of being the only charter member of the International Association of Financial Plan- ners in the province of Alher- ta and is presently concern- rd with promoting iho 'icwly formed Canadian Inslitulo of financial Plonniny. prompt delivery of mental health services, particularly in rural areas, requires greater numbers of qualified workers In the community. The act would encourage community care by urging gen- eral hospitals to accept the re- sponsibility of caring for per- sons receiving mental treat- ment. The definition of a men- tal health facility in the pro- posed act does not contain any reference to mental hospitals. Region alization of mental health services, said Mr. Craw- ford, is proposed by the cre- ation of regional advisory coun- cils. "Decentralization of services will be encouraged by this pro- vision and will allow services to respond in a sensitive manner to local needs." A provincial mental health advisory council also was plan- ned. The bill also proposes that censorship of communication by patients be banned and re- strictions on visiting be held to a minimum. Patients would Iiave to be made aware of their rights in writing or plain lan- guage, using an interpreter if necessary. There is a provision for per- sons remanded for psychiatric e x a m i n a tion, after being charged with an offence, to have out-patient examinations. The Blair report, compiled by Dr. W. P. N. Blair of the University of Calgary, was a controversial issue when the Progressive Conservatives were in opposition. During (ho 1971 provincial election, which saw the Conservatives take power from the Social Credit, the Conservatives promised to act on the report.

Tax cuts spur strength By PETER LEICIINIT7, Canadian 1'rcss Staff Writer Alter much confusion early in the week, a favorable federal budget emerged as the major event guiding investors on Ca- nadian stock market this week. General manufacturing, chemical, steel and paper com- panies ended the week with broad advances largely due to tax cuts announced in the budget Monday. But, the encouraging effect the budget had on Canadian markets was almost erased by escalation of the Vietnam war early in the week. Reacting to the news of in- creased bombing and blockade of Norlii Vietnam ports by the United States, the Dow Jones industrial average plunged 17 points during the opening 40 minutes of trading Tuesday. Canadian markets reacted In a similar manner and reaction to the budget was almost non- existent until midway through the week. INDUSTRIALS UP The Industrial index of the Toronto stock market, a major indicator of market direction, climbed 1.40 points during the week, closing Friday at 199.88. At New York, prices closed with fractional gains after suf- fering sharp losses early in the week. Trading was light. On the Montreal and Cana- dian exchanges, the composite index rose 1.84 points during the week, closing Friday at 203.14. Combined volume on the two exchanges was 7.93 million shares, compared with 8.25 mil- lion last week. Trading was quiet on the To- ronto market during most of the week with a total of 9.88 million shares changing hands, up from 9.27 million last week. GOLDS STRONG Golds continued their strong performance for the fourth con- secutive week. Wednesday, the price of gold on the London bul- lion market topped (U.S.) a fine ounce, more than above the official price of (U.S.) an ounce. Prices, however, edged back later in the week, erasing some of the gains scored on Canadian markets.

Total volume during the week on Wall Street was 71.92 million shares, down from 72.92 million last week. Base metal issues, after scor- ing moderate gains during the first two sessions, turned lower midway through the week. For the week, the base metal index on the Toronto market rose .09 points to 95.18. Western oils received a shot in the arm midway through the week, but it was not enough to erase declines suffered in ear- lier sessions. Thursday, President Nixon authorized a 15-per-cent in- crease in oil imports for the re- mainder of the year. Canada's daily quota' was boosted by barrels to barrels. Analysts pointed out some investors were discouraged by the fact that the Canadian quota was not increased the full 15 per cent. On the week, the western oil index of the Toronto stock mar- ket lost 1.02 points, closing Fri- day at 211.95.
