Macleod ambulance to be replaced By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald District Editor FORT MACLEOD Coun. John Viens Monday night was instructed by town council to gather costs of ambulance un- its Coun. Viens is in charge of the 1959 ambulance and fire department committee here. Council was spurred to ac- tion by deputy mayor Coun. Ian Bennett, a physician, who said: ''The ambulance we have is a bloody disgrace. I have ridden to Calgary in that thing... I think we are having some trouble with our am- bulance. Some men are reluc- tant to take ambulance calls simply because of the stan- dard of equipment they are asked to drive. I am wonder- ing how long we can sit and not do anything Mayor Charlie Edgar said he and secretary treasurer Roy White were told last June there is a strong possibility Deportation ordered for pair A Colorado man and woman, arrested Friday after they walked across the Cana- dian border at a point other than a port of entry, were ordered deported Monday following a hearing at the Lethbridge provincial courthouse Robert Earl Myers. 23. and Linda Roberta, 25. both from Leadville. Colo., earlier appeared in provincial court and pleaded guilty to illegally entering Canada and were fin- ed The two tried to enter Canada at Kmgsgate and Roseville, B C. and Coutts in a truck but were refused entry. They were later picked up in Canada near the Canvay border crossing by the RCMP after they tried to walk across the border. RCMP said. The deportation is expected to take place today. the provincial government is going to take over all am- bulances "but still nothing has happened Mayor Edgar said the Willow Creek Municipal District council has pledged a year for 10 years to assist Fort Macleod acquire a new unit. Coun. Bennett proposed that the town buy a new ambulance and that it be stationed at the Fort Macleod Municipal Hospital and manned by hospital workers. "Now you are getting down to something." agreed Mayor Edgar Coun. Phil Hodnett asked if the province would par- ticipate in the capital costs. "We will have to accept the capital costs of the said Coun. Bennett. "There is no way we could get that As far as manning it, they would have to fight that out with Ed- monton." He said he knew there was a report on ambulance services "sitting on Crawford's (Health Minister Neil Craw- ford) desk but he won't say what's in it." Coun. Ralph Webb wondered what is wrong with the unit now in use. "Its body is said Coun. Bennett. "The back door leaks dust The thing is 40 vears old." Vaughan Hembroff told city council Monday. The best way to do this appears to be to hire a Red Deer lawyer, James Beames, who has previously represented other cities in op- posing such rate increases and is a recognized expert in the field, he said. The city should send its own representative as well as the city's lawyer or utility direc- tor, said Aid. Hembroff, who as chairman of council's power committee had been asked last week to contact Mr. Beames on the matter. Council unanimously agreed to ask Mr. Beames to outline proposed services involved and a estimated cost to the city. Aid Bob Tarleck warned council not to expect much at the Public Utilities Board hearing. "Studies make clear that municipalities and individuals are at a distinct disadvantage in confronting large cor- porations of this nature in utility rate he said. An amendment to the zoning bylaw to permit art galleries in public parks was tabled by city council Monday. Council decided to table the matter to await a definite proposal from the Southern Alberta Art Gallery Associa- tion which is endeavoring to establish an art gallery in the old public library in Gait Gardens. Aldermen also agreed with city planners that they may wish to incorporate other uses such as amphitheatres or nature interpretation centres m the parks zoning.
