Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, Stptwnbw 27, 1974 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD Rehab centre architect upset about stingy gov't funding BONNYVILLE, Alta. (CP) An Edmonton architect designing the new Bonnyville Indian Metis rehabilitation centre told a special meeting of community residents Thursday he was "disgusted" with the provincial government's refusal to budget the necessary for the centre! "When I am involved with native people I'm supposed to give them inferior facilities; when I'm given assignments for white folks I'm given said Douglas Car- dinal, recent winner of a governor general's award for architectural design. When the new centre 120 miles northeast of Edmonton was originally proposed to replace the existing old building, the projected cost was the amount the government has indicated it is willing to pay. However Mr. Cardinal said the was only a target figure and upward revisions of costs in government contracts were frequent. Similar sentiments were ex- pressed by Eugene Steinhauer, executive director of the rehabilitation centre board, who said the government's attitude suggested it would "like to see our people remain illiterate and poor." Richard Anthony, chairman of the Alberta Alcohol and Drug Abuse Commission, re- jected any suggestion that the government was prejudiced against services for native people, but concedes there was an element of repjudice against the alcoholic. Dr. B. E. Brosseau, physican and surgeon at the Bonnyville Medical Centre, told the meeting "we have been getting the runaround." "Government only under- stands power, politics and opinions. We've got to get opinions on our side." Don Hanson, MLA for the Bonnyville area, said an increase of about 70 per cent in costs would necessitate cabinet approval and he could not say when the issue could be placed on the cabinet's agenda. Speaker after speaker recited the litany of alcohol's destructive power and asked the government to help with generous financial contributions. "You government officials always ask for numbers before releasing said a representative of counsell- ing services at the Frog Lake Indian Reserve. "Why don't you come to our communities on weekends and see for yourselves? Then maybe you won't be so sticky about the money. After all, we Indians pay taxes through our noses when we compulsively purchase alcohol. She and others cited high alcohol-related death rates among Alberta's native pop- ulation. Court business normal following explosion Lawyers rapped for court delays CALGARY (CP) An Alberta Supreme Court jus- tice Thursday reprimanded crown and defence lawyers for seeking unnecessary delays in court cases, and said the practice aggravates a serious shortage of courtroom space and court time. Mr. Justice A. J. Cullen said the adjournment of a hearing or trial which was scheduled for a certain day means that a courtroom may be left unused for part or all of a day, while other cases are delayed for months because of difficulties in getting onto the court calen- dar. He said the court is schedul- ed to hear about 190 cases in October, more than double the normal number for one month. He said any cases which cannot be fitted in, or cases where lawyers seek a post- ponement, will have to be add- ed to the already crowded November court calendar. The court clerk's office said later 13 of 47 court cases have been adjourned this month on the request of lawyers. Mr. Justice Cullen said he was bothered by the general attitude of the lawyers, and said cases are piling up "because they just aren't bringing the cases on I have to ask why WINNIPEG (CP) Business returned almost to normal at the law courts building Thursday afternoon following an explosion earlier in the day that seriously in- jured Charles Gilraine, chief clerk of the county court. Policemen shoot bystanders DETROIT (AP) Plain- clothes police trying to halt three holdup men shot and killed two patrons of a crowd- ed bar Thursday night, police said. Killed were Harold Jaynes, 29, and Garry Stang, 33. Police said Jaynes and Stang ignored police warnings to hit the floor and tried to flee through a back door of Keener's Bar. They got caught in the crossfire between police and the three holdup men and were shot accidentally, police said. Two of the three holdup men were wounded and are police prisoners at Detroit General Hospital, where they are re- ported in serious condition, but the third man escaped, police said. The two policemen who fired their guns have been suspended from the force pending an investigation.

It was the third incident in less than two years at the law courts building. Last year a man on trial for robbery threatened to blow up the building with what turned out to be a fake bundle of dynamite. Police disarmed him of a pistol. Then a bomb threat last spr- ing resulted evacuation of the building. No bomb was found. One administrator com- mented that the incident made him wonder what is happening to Canadian society. "It is only in the past couple of years that we have had any problems whatsoever." A provincial judge said he has received the occasional threatening telephone call, but none have turned out to be serious. He said his life has not been threatened since he became a judge, but he did receive threats when he was a crown attorney. 4Poor, old face scarcity of fuel' WASHINGTON (AP) Many elderly Americans may be forced to make choices this winter between such necessities as food and warmth, a Senate committee has been told. "There is little question that the poor and the elderly face a winter of very serious hard- Alvin Arnett, former director of the Office of Economic Opportunity, told the Senate committee on ag- ing Tuesday. "Whether or not there are official national shortages of fuel this winter, you can be sure there will be shortages in the fuel tanks, the stoves, and the furnaces of the poor and said Arnett. James Fedesman of the Consumer Federation of America said that "without an emergency program of aid to the poor, there is an excellent chance that many persons in colder areas of this nation will simply be unable to heat their homes or apartments." EXPECTED INCREASES They and others cited ex- pected increases in fuel prices of from 100 to 400 per cent. Although the poor use less energy than other Americans, they pay more for it a unit as well as a higher percentage of their income. "The elderly and other low- income persons pay 14 per cent of their income for energy, according to a Ford Foundation study not yet said Senator Lawton Chiles (Dem. Fla) chairman of the hearing. "This compares with four per cent paid by other income groups." David Freeman, director of the Ford Foundation Energy Policy Project, said electrici- ty and natural gas prices are so structured that the more a consumer uses, the lower his unit rate is.
