It is not a problem this government, or any government, can solve - only society can do that. The prob­lem I am concerned about is'the breakdown of the family unit here in Alberta. , The Government is responsible for the results of this breakdown, and since I have come to Edm­onton, I have seen a dramatic increase in public assistance to single parent families. Here are the figures: In 1972 we spent $52,700,000 on this item; in 1976 we spent $68,600,000 and in 1977 we expect to spend $83,400,000. Most of these single parents are female, something like 992. There are 14,021 single parents and they receive an average of $4,600 per year. 7.42 were under 20 years old; 20.72 were between 20-24 years; 35.52 were between 25 and 34 years; 21.52 were between 35 and 44 years and 14.92 were over 45 years. The marital status of these people is as follows: 19.22 were never married; 6.32 were widowed; 15.62 were divorced and 58.72 were separated. Now the point I want to underline is this: 74.32 of these single parent families is the result of marriage failure . As I stated at the beginning, this is a problem the government can't solve, and society must, in every way possible, stress the importance of the family unit. I might add that this is only the direct cost, and if you add in such things as the rising rate of juvenile delinquency and the crime rate in the group who are under 25 years 1 ' ’’■’I believe is partly canned by ’^-ok; y homes, we have a real problem to live with for many years to come. .LB 69e Mrs. Mabel Schmunk, Mr. and Mrs. Garth Veale and family, Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Coleman, Mr. and Mrs. Brian Sheer and f ami 1y of Lethbridge motored to Provo, Utah to attend the wedding of Lome Schmunk.
