Mike Keewatin said the liaison is necessary to provide emergency assistance to In- dian people stranded in the city without money or accom- modation He said the friendship centre, which stays open until 10 p.m often has several peo- ple there at closing time without money, transporta- tion back to the reserve, or ac- commodation.

Tom Patterson, community development officer with In- dian affairs, told the meeting that welfare is now ad- ministered by the band coun- cils. Indian affairs has only a small amount of money for assistance to transients, he said Cam Bracken, regional ad- ministrator for the social development department, said his office does provide emergency assistance to trea- ty Indians, but his social workers never know if they are duplicating welfare Winter Games payments from other agen- cies, particulanly Indian af- fairs. He also said assistance is not made available to people living in the Lethbridge area who should have taken "reasonable precautions to go home." Mr. Patterson said the problem has existed for many years, adding that as far as he knows, the same peo- ple are involved all the time. People finding themselves in the city without funds or a place to stay are usually aware of the regulations governing welfare payments, but prefer to ignore them. sporting events chairmen named BERGMAN'S FLOOR COVERINGS Custom Insinuations Ph. 328-0372 2716 12 S.

Fuel costs alone account for 16 per cent of the farm ex- penses, he said, and as these forms of energy become more scarce, their costs will surely increase. Drunk drivers face hardships By DAVID B. ELY Herald Staff Writer Two of the more painful aspects of an impaired driving conviction for many people are the curtailment of driving privilegs and financial loss. These aspects were discuss- ed at Thursday night's session of the Alberta Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Commission's im- paired driving program. Guest speakers were B. L Hinman, administrator of the driver control section Motor Vehicles Branch, and J Douglas Walters, representing the insurance agents association A conviction of impaired driving or driving with more than 08 per cent alcohol in the blood can affect a person one of three ways, Mr Hinman explained. In addition to levying a fine and imposing a probation order, a judge will prohibit a person from driving a motor vehicle in Canada. Suspension of a driver's licence is done by the province's motor vehicles branch. This can happen as the result of a breach of the criminal code, such as im- paired driving, or can result from an accumulation of offenses under the traffic act. Disqualification from ob- taining a driver's licence is the result of a person being convicted of driving while im- paired and not holding a driver's licence Mr. Hinman told the group that driving under any of these situations only com- plicates matters and extends the time a person will have to wait to have his driving privileges reinstated Reinstatement of a driver's licence is not an automatic procedure, he said. Each case is reviewed individually If a person has been granted an exception to the prohibition by a provincial judge, he does not have to be tested for his licence If a person has not been allowed to drive at all during his period of suspension, then he must take the vision, written and driving ex- aminations before he can have his licence reinstated For a first conviction of im- paired driving, a person is prohibited from driving for six months. A second convic- tion in five years will result in a prohibition from driving for a year. A third conviction in 10 years means a person loses his driving privileges for three years "If you are prepared to gamble with driving and drinking, then be prepared to take the consequences." Mr. Hinman warned the group Mr. Walters aimed his lec- ture at the impaired driver's wallet In addition to the fine and the inconvenience of be- ing unable to drive, a convic- tion of impaired driving or driving with more than .08 per cent alcohol in the blood stream means a 100 per cent increase in insurance premiums, he said. An insurance company may also refuse to sell anything other than the minimum coverage required by provin- cial statute to a convicted im- paired driver, Mr. Walters said. This could complicate NU-MODE HOMES LTD OCTOBER 10th thru OCTOBER 14th Children's Ties!

However, the company will then require the impaired driver to repay the amount paid out in claims. "If this happened to be a lawsuit, a man could be paying for his drunk driv- ing for the rest of his he said The four-part seminar on drinking and driving aims to change attitudes of those who mix these two activities, says Norman E. Briscoe, moderator of the program. And the course generally succeeds in doing this, he says Mr. Hinman agreed the course was successful. He cited statistics from a study that showed a repeater rate of about three per cent for those who take the course, as com- pared to about 17 per cent for those who don't. Mr Hinman disagreed with a recent release from the Alberta Safety Council that stated Alberta drivers generally were under- qualified I think most people know how to drive." he said "Th e problems arise from a poor attitude toward traffic laws. It is that attitude we must change." "If peoplle think food costs are high now, wait until the energy shortages are very real and then the prices will really said Mr. Hargrave. Adding fuel to the argument were several society members from Oregon and Montana who claimed hundreds of acres of crops were ruined in the U.S. because farmers couldn't get sufficient supplies of fuel to operate their equipment Mr. Hargrave said the pre- sent negotiations between Alberta and Ottawa over oil royalties and tariffs could determine the temperatures of homes in Ontario this winter. Ontario is dependant on Alberta oil for home heating materials. Adding to the problem is the fact that Alberta's petroleum industry is almost 95 per cent foreign-owned, mostly by U S. interests, he said. "Just recently has there been a strong nationalistic feeling in Canada but it is too said Mr. Hargrave. "We should admit we in Alberta made it too attractive for foreign investors. "We traded them our natural resources for the se- cond highest standard of liv- ing in the world." Mr. Hargrave then took a swipe at rising food prices from another angle, pointing out that a growing global de- mand for practically all com- modities was sustaining rising prices within Canada. "It is a time of high cash in- comes and high spending dur- ing a time of high he said "Canadians must be willing to pay for it. And it starts at the food counter with beef at the top of the list Mr. Hargrave said the answer to high food costs is an increase in agricultural production in Canada. Pointing to the livestock in- dustry from experience gain- ed during terms as president for both the Western Stock Growers Association and the Canadian Cattlemen's Association, Mr. Hargrave said the present beef shortage situation was caused 27 months ago. "That was the time when Canadian cattlemen decided not to expand their he said. "And this is because at the time it wasn't economical- ly feasible There were better returns in grain production. "And Canadians will con- tinue to face the same situa- tion until the ranchers can be assured that they can make money in the beef-raising in- dustry." International monetary policies have also influenced the price of food in Canada, he said Canada and the U.S. devalued their currencies 20 per cent in the past year. The same currencies have devalued 30 per cent in rela- tion to the German mark and the price of beef in Bonn, Ger- many, hasn't increased in the past year. Mr Hargrave then challenged Canadian farmers to fully develop food reserves He said the nation's farmers still only produce three quarters of the national food demand, leaving Canada as a net importer of food "If government and farmers are worried about over-production, they he said "The weather has a habit of taking care of that situation." And in order to get to the root of the production problems, Canada must solve the "young farmer said Mr Hargrave Federal meddling in way of Syncrude CALGARY If the Syncrude project in Northern Alberta doesn't go ahead, it will be because of political meddling by the federal LMH board sets meeting on nursing home beds government, according to Medicine Hat Progressive Conservative MP Bert Hargrave. Mr Hargrave told 100 agricultural engineers here Thursday that the world is facing an energy crisis and projects like Syncrude will be needed to meet the energy demands of the public A meeting has been set to discuss the current shortage of nursing home beds in Lethbridge a Lethbridge Municipal Hospital Board committee and chairman of the Alberta Hospital Services Commission Board chairman John Moreland said Thursday, the Oct 19 meeting would preface any planning undertaken to in- crease the number of nursing home beds in the area." "We cannot begin planning without consulting the com- mission the intial meeting will discuss the need and possibility of increasing the number of Mr. Moreland said. The semi-autonomous government commission, chaired by Dr J. E Bradley, administers the province's hospitals and nursing homes. At a local level, the Lethbridge Municipal and Auxiliary Hospitals and Nurs- ing Home District No. 65 Board is responsible for ad- ministering nursing home care in and around Lethbridge through consultation with the commission.
