Legal aid director resigns CALGARY (CP) The head of the Calgary legal aid office has quit, along with three of his five staff members, for disagreement with the Edmonton head of- fice on how legal aid should be operated. Lawrence Hutchings said Wednesday he will not seek an extension of his one-year term as head of the Calgary office and deputy director of the Alberta Legal Aid Society when his term expires Oct. 1. He said he tendered his resignation in May after it became apparent he could not agree with his Edmonton head office on how the legal plan should be administered. "I feel they're attempting to run the plan as a big business instead of a social agency." He said three of the five staff members in the Calgary office have resigned also over differences with ad- ministrators in Edmonton. Mr. Hutchings said the problems were not major more of the "nit-picking" variety, involving working hours, staff shortage and the like which "all added up to a general feeling of frustration." Replacing Mr. Hutchings is Olga Dobrowney, a Red Deer lawyer. The director of the Alberta Legal Aid Society, Pat Sommervill of Edmonton, said in a telephone interview he hopes the new appointment will ease some of the dif- ficulties in the Calgary office. He said he was aware of Mr. Hutchings' frustrations with the operation of legal aid but added that the policy is not set by his office. "My only comment is that the policy is laid down by the 15-man joint committee on legal said Mr. Sommer- vill. ihursday, September 26, 1974 iHt LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 First legal action taken in defunct firm's case EDMONTON (CP) Bill McKinnon, former analyst for the provincial insurance department, Wednesday elected trial by judge and jury on two charges in connection with the defunct Cosmopolitan Life Assurance Co.
