CAPITAL REPORT The sprfhg sesson óf the Alberta Legislature will open February 24th and will last for about three months and is the major session of the year. The most important piece of business to be dealt with is the approval of the budget for the coming year. Last year the budget amounted to nearly 3 billion dollars and I expect that this year it will be 3.3 billion. Education, Medical Care and Social Services required half of the budget last year and I assume that the same will hold true again this year. In fact your government will spend nearly $1.000 for every man, woman and child in this province in these three departments. The following are some of the issues I believe will be debated in the spring session. One is the restriction of foreign ownership of land. Another is the changes in the Planning Act, another will be the government’s position regarding the federal Anti Inflation program. To some the re­distribution of seats will be of interest. Another area will be the increase in tuition fees for toreign students and I am sure international trade and patriation of the constitution will also be discussed. My concern lies not only with the above issues but also includes the following. It seems we are spending more and more on education but the students are getting less and less basic education. I dont blame the class room teacher for this, but some how basic education must be upgraded. Alberta has the highest divorce rate per capita of any province in Canada and the single parent family is increasing rapidly. Three years ago the government spent 43 million doll­ars in this area and this year we are spending nearly 70 million of single parent families. I am not concerned about the money as I am bout the breakdown of the family unit and what it will do to our society in the future because a close family unit is the basis of a strong society. •• A bill to increase the legal age for the consumption of alcohol was introduced in the legislat­ure last fall but was not passed. I supported this bill and I feel that in rural Alberta at least the desire for legislation of this type is gaining support. . I will be in Edmonton for the next 3 months with the exception of the weekends. Anyone wishing to contact me can write me at Room 513, Legislative Building, Edmonton or phone collect to 429s- 4531, on the weekends you can call collect to 758-6672 at Spring Coulee.
