Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD Friday, October 11, 1t74 No hearings on megavitainin therapy EDMONTON (CP) The provincial government's review of megavitamin therapy will likely not include public meetings, but in- dividuals will be able to sub- mit their views in writing to the government, Bruce Raw- son, chairman of the Alberta Hospital Services Com- mission, said Thursday. Mr. Rawson said the public meetings requested by sup- porters of the .therapy "are not necessarily the best way to get at the facts and figures of megavitainin therapy." He said both sides tend to get emotional and this is not compatible with the "scholar- ly study" the government wants. Proponents of the therapy have said a purely academic study would only confirm a study undertaken by the Alberta College of Physicians and Surgeons, prior to its rul- ing that the treatment was ex- perimental: Megavitamin therapy in- volves the use of massive doses of vitamins and other nutrients to treat a wide variety of physical and psy- chiatric ailments. 9 Save 20% on custom j drapery fabrics.

Telephone 328-9231 HAROLD CARDINAL Indian Act overhaul pondered By STUART LAKE OTTAWA (CP) A full- time minister of Indian affairs and allowing Indians to swear in court on a ceremonial mask or other .sacred article rather than the Bible are among proposed changes in the In- dian Act being considered this week by a special meeting of the National Indian Brotherhood. The proposals are contained in an interim report of an In- dian Act study team financed by the federal government and administered by the Alberta Indian Association. Harold Cardinal, president of the Alberta group, earlier this week listed amendments to the Indian Act as one of the three main issues to be dealt with by meetings of the brotherhood, voice of Canada's registered Indians, and a committee of the federal The wide-ranging changes proposed by the study team still need approval from In- dian, organizations across Canada before being sub- mitted to the cabinet. Among the 471 proposed clauses is one that would seal off the new Indian Act from court attacks based on the Ca- nadian Bill of Rights. In the past brotherhoods have criticized the piecemeal changes sought and sometimes successfully based on the Bill of Rights. If that clause were to stand, it would be the first bill passed by Parliament that would be immune from the Bill of Rights. SEEK MORE POWER The proposals also would give band councils jurisdiction over welfare and would em- power them to have a healthy welfare recipient work for his payments. The changes also would con- tinue to make income earned by Indians on reserves non- taxable and would double for Indians the income tax ex- emptions of other taxpayers. "The larger deductions are needed to avoid double pay- ment for services like education, health and other rights which are prepaid by the lands said the study team. Free health care and educa- tion would be permanently es- tablished by other proposals. Another proposal would stop the present practice of white women marrying TtutiaTK and attaining Indian status. Both Indian men and women would retain status despite marriage to a non-Indian, thereby putting Indian women on an equal basis with men. CHANGES LISTED In some other proposed changes: would be given preference in getting jobs and promotions in the Indian af- fairs department All depart- ment employees must take an oath to uphold Indian rights. Canada Council would provide 'a special division to encourage and assist Indian art would be allowed to practise traditional medicine on reserves and would not be liable for any damages alleged to have resulted from their practice. money paid to In- dians would be doubled. No hunting or trapping fees to be paid by Indians, Indians would be exempt from the Migratory Birds Act iuemims of In- dian tribes in the United States and Canadian- registered Indians would have the right of free movement twtwuuu the two countries. expropriation of Indian land except by the Canadian CiW4zl 'lii -Each elected chief would receive a Union Jack, the Canadian flag and a chiefs chair. The study committee said the chair "should resem- ble a chair of Mr. Speaker in the House of Commons." Sears Wi0 LIMITED QUANTITIES STARTS A.M. PERSONAL SHOPPING ONLY! More features. More functions.
