Members of the 171 group, the self styled "reform more rvice aid ment" within the party, decided during the weekend lo put a number of resolutions on the ballot sheet for the party's December convention. The resolutions, of f 1 c ials said, do not necessarily reflect the official view of the group but are merely something they want the general membership to discuss. They passed a resolution asking that medical care coverage be extended to include such community services as counselling as well as dental services. Another approved resolution asked the federal government to resist pressures to withdraw from shared cost medical programs with the provinces. A province wide study on the "delivery" ot health care was also urged. The group voted down a resolution suggesting that prostitution be legalized in the prov-nce. Also rejected, was a suggestion that kindergartens be introduced into Ihe elementary school system, instead of being handled separately as at pres-ncl. Carried were resolutions suggesting that teachers have more freedom of movement within the school system, that teachers have three years of university education and that elementary school teachers be screened "for the purnose of assigning the right personality nnd background to the correct age level." The 171 group was formed following the Liberal leadership convention in 1970 when Dave Stuart was elected lo lead Ihe party.
