Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 8, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THI LETHBRIBGE HHAID Thundar, I, Hearing Nov. 2 On Avenue Issue A public hearing on the pro- posed closing of one block ol 4th Ave. S., north of Shoppers' World, has been tentatively set for Nov. 2. Closing of the avenue has been requested by Shoppers' World Ltd., developers of a proposed hotel complex on the shopping mall site. The avenue is needed, ac- cording to the developer, in or- der to join the hotel property to an existing parking lot north of 4th Ave. Inclusion of the avenue in the site for the hotel could also af- fect its size. Because of city bylaw floor area requirements the total floor area must be only half (or less) the size of the lot on which-it is built. Deleting the avenue could re- sult in the hotel being less than the proposed 10 to 12 stories. The public hearing has been delayed by city council until reports by city departments on the matter could be made available to the public.

Alberta Hasn't Considered Forcing Issue On Abortions By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor Tte possibility of forcing sec- ular hospitals in the province to grant legal 'abortions has neither been considered nor dis- cussed by the Alberta depart- ment of health, said a depart- ment spokesman ill a tele- phone interview today. The statement was in reply to one from Loffmark, B.C. health minister, that he may order all British Columbia hos- pitals to grant abortions. Vancouver hospitals accord- ing to Mr. Loffmark are finding the demands on hospital facili- ties difficult to cope with. The Edmonton spokesman said that each hospital in Al- berta works within its own framework with its own local board, and local responsibili- ties. "There is no question that to some extent there has been some pressure on the hospitals because of the increased num- bers of legal abortionsj" he said. Edmonton hospitals have been overtaxed and find it "quite difficult to meet the de- ruand." He said the "day is no doubt coming, and fairly soon, when secular hospitals will become public institutions." HOLY CROSS EXAMPLE As an 'instance, Holy Cross Hospital in Calgary has asked the provincial government to buy out its equity, as have sev- eral other hospitals in the prov- ince. "The provincial government pays well over 90 per cent to Si. Michael's General Hospital and the Lethbridge Municipal Hospital in Lelhbridge. Leth- k'idge city council has recom- mended in a brief to the pro- vincial department that hospi- tals 'and hospital services be in- tegrated into one. "If St. Michael's is opposed to this it might also be sug- gested that the.

The provincial government payed an addition- al the deficit at the same time. I QUALITY DENTURE I CLINIC I EDDY DIETRICH I Csrlified Dental Mechanic I Capital Furniture Bldg. PHONE 328-76841 It was the first time in the hospital's 40-year history that the board had to ask for such a grant. the health department offi- cial said such grants are the first step in putting the hospi- tal in a public position. "It.places them outside the sphere of the hospital's Catho- lic advisory board.! The govern- ment has a fixed level of pay- ment. If the hospital wants more, or they are less efficient, then they can approach the provincial government or go to the local taxpayer. Then its up to the local taxpayer if he wants to pressure the hospital for additional services. "the private hospitals can't run in isolation any longer." Sister Mary Clarissa, admini- strator of St. Michael's Hospi- tal said today that DO difficulty in finances was predicted by the board for 1970, but that no communication had been re- ceived by the provincial gov- ernment as to budget allow- ances for 1971. No therapeutic abortion com- mittee has been set up at the hospital nor has such a itep been considered, she said. In commenting on a possible order abortions at the hospital Sister Clarissa raid she did the govern- ment would do so. "We have a certain autonomy in the hospitals and I can't see the government taking that autonomy away." A spokesman for the Leth- bridge Municipal Hospital com- mented that there has been a "substantial increase" in the number of female operations, such as abortions and steriliza- tions over the last year.
