Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, October 2, 1974-THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD-45 Isolated Alberta areas need help EDMONTON (CP) The four-yc-ar-old girl is having trouble breathing. Her tem- perature is 102 degrees and she bounces between a raging fever and shuddering chills. She has been this way for almost 36 hours and still there is no word from a doctor on what to do, no transportation authorized to take her to hos- pital. This is what many native parents face in isolated settle- ments scattered across north- ern Alberta because of a lack of communications equip- ment. That's the message being carried by the Alberta Iso- lated Communities Advisory Board to the Alberta govern- ment. "Since there are only mo- bile phones in the five settle- ments it is very difficult sometimes to reach various people responsible for the au- thorization of mercy flights, ambulance trips, medical ad- vice and said board member John Cardinal. Some of the major isolated Lake, Peerless Lake, Chipeway Lake, Loon Lake and Sandy community health workers but their effec- tiveness is limited, said Mr. Cardinal. "Local health workers lack the authority to order emer- gency flights and have to call the doctor or nurse on duty. "This takes time and some- times we need the flight as soon as possible. It's a prob- lem and we have to do some- thing about it." Loon Lake and Chipeway have no facilities where phy- sicians can work in private, said Mr. Cardinal, and Loon Lake lacks even a community health worker. Isolation in the com- munities is not limited to com- munications and medical flights. "The road conditions are impassable during breakup. The department of highways tells us the forestry branch is responsible for the mainte- nance and upgrading of the roads, but nobody seems to know for sure who is respon- said Rev. Paul Hernou of Chipeway. Father Hernou said recrea- tion facilities in most isolated communities are "non-exis- tent "The Northland school divi- sion is responsible for the rec- reational activities for the iso- lated communities but there is hardly anything for older people. "We must work together on this aspect, we have the labor available through the oppor- tunity core but we are short of funds for our community pro- jects." William Beaver, isolated communities worker, said "since we've started the Iso- lated Communities Board, we have been making some head- way with our presentations. "It takes time and energy but the people are patient and they are confident we will make some progress-" NOTICE City of Lethbridge Municipal Elections 1974 ADVANCE POLL For those persons who are qualified electors and who have reason to believe that they will be absent from their place of residence during the whole of the time fixed for municipal elections OR who by reasons of physical disability find it im- posssible or extremely difficult to attend at the regular polling place, an Advance Poll will be es- tablished in the City Hall and will be open on THURSDAY, October 10 FRIDAY, October 11 SATURDAY, October 12 between the hours of two o'clock in the afternoon and eight o'clock in the evening on each of the said three days.
