Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 29, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THI LITHMIDGE HERALD Thundny, Oclobtr Doctors Plan To Carry Quebec Fight To Ottawa OTTAWA (CP) The Canadian Medical Association plans to carry the fight of Quebec medical specialists into the federal arena. A special message issued by the national association says the board of directors soon will be asked for further support of the specialists who held a 10-day strike in Quebec earlier this month. Once provisions of the War Measures Act are lifted, Quebec egislation requiring doctors within the medical care insurance program may be chal-lenffft) under the Canadian Bill of CMA said the Bill of Rights can be used to question Quebec's constitutional right to enforce Bill 41, passed by the Quebec national assembly after the specialists went on strike over opting-out provisions in the medical care plan. It ordered them back to work in lieu of heavy fines or jail terms. The CMA also said the Quebec medical care plan may not fill one of the requirements in federal legislation on medical care. Provinces that meet requirements may collect roughly, half the costs of their medical care plans. COMPENSATION CITED The federal act says that to be eligible for cost-sharing, medical service payments must be made "on a basis that provides for reasonable compensation for insured services rendered by medical practitioners." The Quebec specialists and the CMA argue that the scale at payments under the care plan fall far below those of comparable provinces such as Ontario. The special message, issued on authorization of CMA president Dr. D. L. Kippen of Winni-r-eg, said Quebec specialists will continue to fight the province's medical care in effect as of Nov. 1-but in different form from the 10-day strike. The specialists agreed to end their strike Oct. 25 at a meeting at CMA headquarters here 48 hours after (he War. was invoked by the federal government. Dr. Kippen said in a lUte-ment at the time the were urged to return to work because possible emergency medical requirements would arise in Quebec. Toll QUEBEC (CP) Last winter 93 Canadians were killed in snowmobile accidents, a 50-percent increase over the 1968-69 winter, the Canadian Safety Council reported here.

To Tighten Purse Strings EDMONTON (CP) The Al- berta government will exercise "even further spending re- straint" because revenue from oil lease sales is about mil- lion short of the sum esti- mated in the budget, Provin- cial Treasurer A. 0. Aalborg said today. The third1 major sale of pe- troleum and natural gas leases of the 1970-71 fiscal year Tues- day brought the government bringing the total in sales to million, compared with million estimated1 in the budget. "An department1? understand to a situation of t h i s sort the objective is restraint, to spend less than the appropriations ap- proved in the Mr. Aalborg said. He said hte was "still hope- ful" the government could fin- ish this fiscal year without making any more in cap borrowings than.it already has. "While lease sale revenues are low, we could see what the trend was at the time of the April sale. It was much lower than we hoped. The trend con- tinued through the July and October sales and we're not hopeful of any change in the situation in Mr. Aalborg said. Business Spotlight Veterinarians Get Incentives WINNIPEG tCP) The pro- vincial government is investing almost million in an effort to get veterinarians to move into the farming regions of Mani- toba. The lack of veterinarians in rural are only about 25 practising at present- is a prime concern of the Mani- toba Veterinary Medical Asso- ciation. Dr. George Phillips, associa- tion president, said outbreaks of animal diseases could end in large-scale disasters because of the lack of rural veterinarians. Dr. Phillips, an animal-phy- siology professor at the Univer- sity of Manitoba's agriculture department, said veterinarians shun rural work because it often means they are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week and may have to travel long dis- tances to reach clients. He said financial returns are not satisfactory, ranging from to annually, "with most of the men in the lower brackels." "Whnt it all means is that such things as foot and mouth disease can break out withou being diagnosed quickly enougl before spreading. The lack o vets has great potential danger to animal health and the com munity's economic progress. The situation has prompta the government to provide fin ancial assistance to build eighi rural veterinary clinics, all ex pected to te completed b; March, 1971. Agriculture Minister Sam Uskiw said Manitoba is "ideall; suited for increased livestock production" but this is only pos sible if the gap in the supply of veterinary services can be closed. "But with the help of contin ued incentives we are sure we can attract the veterinarians we need." Dr. Phillips said about one- third of Manitoba's veterinari ans live and work in Winnipeg and other large centres, operat ing practices for pet owners Another third are salaried men working for various levels o government or the University o] Manitoba. Definition Of Wilderness Area Still Poses Problems EDMONTON (CP) The definition of a wilderness area still poses problems, Health Minister J i m c s Henderson says. While the government had iiot made a decision, there may be an opportunity for groups concerned about the wilderness area concept in Alberta to put tlieir views before the legisla- ture. Mr. Henderson told a news conference the main debate the department of cnvironnienLal improvement will be involved in is the question of multiple use of land. When submissions of conser- vation, groups are taken in total, Mr. Henderson said, what emerges is u request that the entire Rocky Mountain foothills area be set aside as a wilder- ness area free from resource development. He said the government is prepared to set aside certain areas exclusively as wilder- ness, but to prevent develop- nicnt, in the entire region is "really out of the question."
