Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 11, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta S THE UWBRIDOE HERAID Wednesday, November U, 1970 o institution in west for psychiatric treatment of prisoners KECilNA (CP) Welfare minister C. 1'. MacDonald to- day said I he Saskatchewan Rov- I'riimcnt is gravely concerned dial there is no institution on I he prairies where jail inmates with psychiatric disorders can get special attention. Asked by opposition leader Al- lan Blakcney In account for cir- cumstances surround i n g the Sept. 29 death of David Ween Moore, 21, of Vancouver, a dis- turbed person who strangled himself with a 1) 1 a n k e t, Mr. MucDonald said: "This kind of human Is of deep concern to everyone. We are gravely concerned about the fact that we do not have an institution anywhere on the prai- ries to handle this type of prob- lem." The minister, in a statement, said that a committee of health and welfare department repre- sentatives has been set up to see how such cases can he han- dled in future. Moore was ad- mitted to the jail in June to serve six months for possessing stolen properly. An inquest was told that three days before his death, Moote injected cleanser into his aim and was taken to a hospital emerg e n c y ward. The jail's nurse testified that Moore was a drug addict with suicidal ten- dencies and that the jail couldn't cope with such cases. Mr. MacDonald said the de- cision not to transfer Moore to a psychiatric hospital was a medical one. "Staff of the correctional cen- tre had numerous consultations with psychiatrists. They had an assessment done by the Mun- roe Clinic, (in Regina) they con- tinued to discuss the case with members of the medical profes sion and carried out all pie- scribed medication." He said members of the med- ical profession who were con- sulted felt that Moore did not need institutional treatment Attorney General D. V Heald, replying to a question raised Blakeney, said there was no attempt to dis- suade A. R. Boyes, former chiatrist at the" jail, from tes- tifying at the inquest. Mr. Boyes came forward on his own and told the inquest he was shocked that Moore hid been put naked in a cell with no furniture or mattress on his return from hospital. Moore strangled himself rath a blan- ket another inmate loaned him. Mr. Heald, in a statement, said the crown counsel at the inquest actuall; aided Mr. Boyes, going out of his way to expedite the psychiatrist's evi- dence. The jury attached no blame Jn the death but recommended that suitable facilities be set up for handling ol such cases. Mr. MacDoaald, replying to another question, said Mr. Boyes' employment with the welfare department had been terminated because he "refused to come to work." He said Mr. Boyes had been informed of the termination Oct. 13, more than two weeks prior to the inquest. He said Mr. Boyes, after the death, "made statements in the institution which made it nec- essary to remove him from the Institution and he was assigned to the department of welfare program division." At the inquest, Mr. Boyes said he still had a job with the de- partment but his work had been taken away from him. Mr. MacDonald said Mr Boyes had been hired on a tem- porary basis and his period of probation was up. Mr. MacDonald said Mr. Boyes, holder of a bachelor of arts degree, had failed to gain the masters degree needed for the position and "the depart- ment had no alternative but to cancel his appointment at the end of the probation period." Wheat crop liike urged WINNIPEG (CP) Otto Lang, the minister responsible for the Canadian Wheat Board, said here the federal govern- ment wants western farmers to increase their wheat acreage next year to 20 million acres. Mr. Lang told a news con- ference that the increase, from the 12 million acres planted in wheat in the last crop year, is foreseen because of expected increases in exports and a re- duction in Canada's one billion bushel wheat surplus. HR said the reduction in the wheat surplus was the result of producer acceptance of tile fed- eral government's wheat acre- age reduction prograrrr. .RYTHING! LOWER LADIES' CLOTHIHG PRICES HBIRDGE...
