Bilingual public service a failure, Socred claims By STUART LAKE OTTAWA (CP) Govern- ment attempts to make the pub- lic service of Canada truly bilin- gual have been a failure and a separate French-Canadian pub- lic service should be set up for those whose first language is French, Rene Matte (SC- Champlain) said Thursday. Leading off a day-long Com- mons debate on a Social Credit motion that deplored alleged government delay in imple- menting the official Languages Act, he cited the Canadian Broadcasting Corp., which pro- vides both French and English service. Under House rules, there was Ottawa has 110 plans to boost health share OTTAWA (CP) The federal government has no plans to in- crease its health cost-sharing offer to the provinces, govern- ment officials said Thursday. The plan, criticized by the provinces when federal-provin- cial ministers of health anl fi- nance met here recently, will surface again at next week's conference of provincial pre- miers and Prime Minister Trudeau. The proposal, to give the provinces more flexibility to run their own health schemes, would result hi the federal gov- ernment transferring an addi- tional billion to the prov- inces over the next five years. "And to the best of my knowl- a senior official said Thursday, "this is the final of- fer." Some officials are hopeful the premiers will be more agree- able to the proposal, which their ministers had little time to study at the last meeting. This is likely to be the most contentious issue coming before the conference, to be held here next Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Committee member Dr. G. "What has happened because of the Watergate affair will mean that in all western coun- tries there will be loss of peo- ple's belief in the institutions of democratic government. However, he said, the thefts, burglary, conspiracy and sub- version of justice in the inci- dents are crimes, not politics. An affair rcukl he concluded, such as Watergate happen in Canada.

He said he'd be disappointed if there is not legislation on these two issues at the fall ses- sion of the legislature. In a brief to the committee, the B.C. Professional Pharma- cists Society charged that there is an acute problem in distri- bution of drugs to mental pa- tients and welfare recipients. The society asked that a government controlled stock of drugs be dispensed through local drug stores and that wel- fare recipients ba allowed the same medical supplies that ara allowed to others. The committee heard a total of 12 briefs in two days, includ- ing a trial brief urging that more government funds be made available for homemaker training programs, and a de- partment of human resources brief urging establishment of commun i t y resources centres health, welfare amalgamating public education and social services.
