BEST OOPY AVAILABLE B4 The Edmonton Journal, Thursday, February 10, 1994 Alberta Etlein holding back m Csigary council DAVID STEIN HART Calgary Herald Calgary The provincial government was accused this week of "scheming" to Okeep federal infrastructure money out of Calgary. Premier Ralph Klein is lagging far behind other provinces in the dispersal of both information and funds for the program, John Schmal, who chairs the city's finance and budget committee, said Tuesday. And Klein's procrastination could have a huge effect on summer employment, he said. The infrastructure deal could be worth about $160 million in work in Calgary over the next two years. Under the $2-billion program, the federal government distributes money based on a province's population and unemployment rate; the province and municipalities then match that amount "We need to know about the program and we need to know now," said Schmal, who just returned from Ottawa, where the program was discussed in a Federation of Canadian Municipalities meeting. The province has said it will endorse the program, but hasn't said when it will do so. "The prime minister has said he wants to see shovels in the ground in Alberta and he wants to see all infrastructure work started," Schmal said. He added that it's an odd situation that Alberta has not yet signed a deal because most, if not all, oth- er provinces have already officially endorsed the program. Quebec, for example, inked a $1.6-billion job creation deal with Ottawa this week to create up to 65,000 jobs over two years. "I fear he (Klein) is scheming and holding back on us because in order to pay for our share of the in Doctors mount campaign to save Calgary hospital ROBERT WALKER Calgary Herald Calgary Four hundred doctors at Calgary General Hospital are mounting their own campaign to save the Bow Valley Centre, one of three city hospitals threatened with closure. They are supporting the campaign launched at a public rally Tuesday night of more than 300 angry Bridgeland and city residents to back the survival of inner-city hospitals. "We are supporting the community with as much objective inform Nicaraguan heart patient must go home Calgary Herald Calgary The hole in her heart has been fixed, but a 38-year-old Nicaraguan woman's fervent desire to stay in Canada remains unfulfilled. Maria Magdalena Bendana has been told she must leave the country' by May 6, following successful surgery at the Foothills Hospital for a heart defect. The $9,000-to-$12,000 bill for her eight-day treatment has been covered entirely by public donations and guarantees from supporters who have rallied to her cause. Now recuperating with her seven-year-old daughter in the home of a Red Deer family, "she's feeling a lot of uncertainty," Therese Dion, of the Central Alberta Immigrant Women's Association, said Wednesday. The Canada Immigration deportation order "is really looming down on her," she said. Calgary immigration manager Richard Caron confirmed Bendana was given a 12-week extension to her deportation order to allow her to recover from the major surgery- "Then she must go . . . she's used all the recourses available." Efforts to keep Oilers wins Yuen volunteer honor Journal Staff Edmonton The president of Edmonton Northlands has been honored by Canada's exhibition and fair industry for his part in trying to keep the Oilers hockey club here. Gerry Yuen, 53, w as named volunteer of the year by the Canadian Association of Exhibitions at the conclusion of its 67th annual convention Monday at the Westin Hotel. He won the honor "in recognition of his unending efforts amidst relentless media scrutiny to help Edmonton retain its NHL franchise," Northlands said in a press release. How successful those talks are is unknown. Negotiations are cloaked under a blackout of the media Yuen was not nominated by an Alberta fair association, said a Northlands official. frastructure program, he will have to make other cuts to balance it off," said Schmal, adding those cuts could come in police and transport ation grants. Klein shrugged oil the com plaints. "We've signed on. We've said w e're going to do it "It's a matter of the minister (Ken Kowalski) now preparing a program as to how we're going to participate. He has been, to my knowledge, communicating with va rious municipalities as to how we can develop a co-ordinated approach." Aldermen should "work with the minister," if they have concerns, said Klein. The province hasn't settled specifics about how it will pay for the infrastructure program, including the possibility of raising money by cutting provincial grants, he said. Aid. David Bronconnier said Klein is skirting the entire infrastructure issue. "I find it amazing that he can make these provincial cuts and yet won't put his signature on a document that could in essence create tens of thousands of jobs over 24 months," said Bronconnier. "I think he's trying to avoid putting any new money into it" Schmal said other provinces have already set up infrastructure management committees to analyse the program, but Alberta has yet to do so. The prov ince has until Feb. 28 to come up with its share of infrastructure money. Some $71 million worth of capital projects planned by the city have been delayed until that date. Many budgeted projects including about $1 million in police station upgrading, an Emergency Medical Services satellite station. North East Sportsplex pool renovations and road work could qualify for infrastructure funding. ation as we can," medical staff president Dr. Wendy Tink said earlier Tuesday. Tuesday night, residents echoed doctors' concerns at the meeting. Ken Morris, a resident from the northeast outskirts, was concerned that if Bow Valley trauma closed, it would take longer for ambulances from his area and the airport to get to other emergency departments "and that could cost lives." "Bow Valley is the finest trauma centre in southern Alberta and we are talking about closing it Why fix it when it's not broken? That is my big question," asked Dean Zemai-taitis.
