"The grasp which those re- sponsible have of Ihe prohlem is Fuch that Ihe federal depart- ment of and welfare Inade a grant of a whole S550.000 for family planning in the last fiscal year when abor- tions cost us over 520 million." Dr. Walter Hannah, fin obste- trician at the Women's College Hospital. Toronto, also said that responsible family planning pro- grams are the "only realistic answer'1 to the social problems illustrated by demands for abor- tions on demand. Thr-ir comments added force to by John Connors, president of the Catholic Hospi- tal Association of Canada, who said Roman Catholic hospitals in Ciuiada would "close their doors and go up for sale" if governments pass legislation forcing them to perform abor- tions. Mr. Connors, administrator of Winnipeg's Misericordia Hospi- tal, said in an Interview Friday his association has not changed its position on abortion and is unlikely to do so.

Sol Rolherman of Trail, for- merly of Kimberley, is provin- cial committee chairman. As lominco Kimberley superinten- dent and active in East Koo- tenay industrial affairs he is conversant with area vocation employment requirements and existing training facilities. Early in 1971 suitability of .he vacant St. Eugene Mission residential school, federally- owned, was base for formation of ,1 C r B n brook Kimberley committee toward its approval as 3 site. Requirements are ]o- :al provision of an expandable file, in addition In 3 minimum potential enrolment for voca- tions and trades for employ- ment in the area. Parochial rivalry between (he two centres, and competilivo real estate interests caused the whole plan to be temporarily shelved. The Mission site has now been checked off the potential location list but three potential sites, accessible to both centres but outside both municipalities, remain. Solid agreement and support by both centres on the location must preceed further practical consideration and feasibility study. AL present the Kootenay Vo- cational School at Nelson and apprcnficesliips are the main post-secondary education facil- ity for East Kootenay students aiming at skilled and semi- skilled jobs in their own area. Cranbrook and District Hos- pital houses the East Kootenay section of the Kootenay Voca- tional School practical nursing course.

Drury reiterated that the govwjjjueiit is prepared lo do all it can to ensure that the auditor-general can properly carry out his functions as watchdog on federal spending. Mr. McGrath said that rules changes were supposed to give Commons committees added in- fluence in discussing govern- ment spending estimates. But these rules required the estimate to be reported back to the House by May 31 in the fiscal year. This, in effect, meant that they were passed by May 31 no mottrr hnw much effort went Into examining the cslimnles, be said. Mr. McGrafh also said the rules allow Liberal whips to 'move in roving squads to bol- ster llieir majority on commit- tees as the case may be." Mr. Drury said the govern- ment is looking forward to legis- lation, now being prepared by the Commons public accounts committee, which would permit the auditor-general to carry out his functions.
