                               REPORT REFERENCE

   1.   Review of Alcohol and Drug Services in Vancouver
                                                                 File: 4101

        Mr. Jeff Brooks, Manager of Community Services, Social Planning,
   provided a report reference on a document entitled "Review of Alcohol
   and Drug Services in Vancouver".  This report was sponsored by the
   Ministry for Children and Families and the Vancouver/Richmond Health
   Board.

        The purpose of the review was to recommend a program model and
   organizational structure which will best meet Vancouver's growing
   service needs, and to make recommendations on resource requirements.  

        The review identified the following main problems and issues that
   need to be addressed:

            shifting responsibility for Alcohol and Drug Services (ADS);

            restricted ability for regions to respond strategically with
             flexibility to local issues;

            inadequate planning and information infrastructure to
             strategically manage resources and deal with local trends and
             issues;

            program and service inconsistencies with issues being
             addressed on an ad hoc basis, which has led to a variety of
             differences in programs and fragmentation of service;

            access to service has been a problem for some of the more
             vulnerable populations;

            insufficient resources.

        Solutions promoting quality, effectiveness and efficiency include:

            One regional-based management structure that is accountable
             for ADS in Vancouver;

            a continuum of care from health promotion to treatment and
             support for adults, children and youth, families and older
             adults;

            appropriate integration of services and consistent with
             Ministry of Children and Families and Vancouver/Richmond
             Health Board;

            a model of detox and treatment case management, and service
             utilization assessment;

            the development of a coherent harm reduction management
             approach;

            improved access to service for certain special needs
             populations;

            a regional data and information system to support
             decision-making;

            an ability to generate and analyse the data in order to set
             strategic directions, and to be held more accountable for
             outcomes.



        The action plan will include the following steps:

            work to integrate the current school-based prevention services
             and school health services;

            streamline detox and treatment services;

            restructure existing alcohol and drug services to outpatient
             clinics;

            review residentially-based treatment and support services;

            establish a community information bank on the epidemiology of
             drug and alcohol use;

            implement an injection drug use harm reduction strategy;

            development of appropriate medical services for people facing
             severe withdrawal syndrome and multiple diagnosis.

   MOVED by Cllr. Clarke,
        THAT Council endorse the report entitled  Review of Alcohol and
   Drug Services in Vancouver  and the Provincial Government be urged to
   act immediately on the report.

   2.   Charitable Gaming
        June 23, 1997                                            File: 2633

        Before Council was an Administrative Report dated June 23, 1997
   from the Director of Community Services Division, Social Planning which
   informed Council of changes related to the charitable gaming model in
   British Columbia, and how these changes could affect charities in the
   City of Vancouver.

        Mario Lee, Social Planning Analyst, advised that on June 20, 1997,
   at a by-invitation-only meeting, the Lotteries Advisory Committee of the
   Provincial Government released further information regarding the
   expansion of gaming in B.C.   Staff believe this is the development of a
   complete new model for charitable gaming in the  B.C.

        At present the government revenue generated by the casinos and
   bingo operations is $14 million, the owners/operators revenue is $73
   million (operation costs are paid out of this portion), while charities
   receive $112 million from both activities. Once the expansion is fully
   implemented, the Government revenue form charitable gaming could
   increase to $344 million, owners/operators revenue could increase to
   $284 million, while the charities portion could increase to $172
   million.

   MOVED by Cllr. Puil,
        THAT Council request the Provincial Government to allow the City of
   Vancouver to retain the monies derived from traffic fines in Vancouver
   and a portion of photo radar revenue, thereby enabling the City to
   augment its meagre police resources to adequately cope with a problem
   which is being compounded by Victoria s policies on gaming.

                                           - CARRIED UNANIMOUSLY


   MOVED by Cllr. Clarke, 
        THAT this report be received for information, and

        FURTHER THAT this report be forwarded to the UBCM along with the
   report from Detective Randy Peterson, Vancouver Police Department and
   Coordinated Law Enforcement Unit, which was delivered at International
   Conference on Gambling and Risk Taking in Montreal. 

                                           - CARRIED UNANIMOUSLY

   MOVED by Cllr. Sullivan,
        THAT information be forwarded to the Governor of  Washington State
   advising of the adverse impacts being felt in B.C. from gaming
   activities in Washington, and the  expansion of gaming which is
   occurring as B.C. tries to keep pace.

   MOVED by Cllr. Price,

   Committee on Transportation and Traffic, at which time staff are to
   provide additional information, and a delegation from the Union can be

   the Union of British Columbia municipalities:

        1(b) Delegation of Routine Strata Title Conversion Approvals

        WHEREAS the Condominium Act establishes a Municipal Council as
        the approving authority for existing buildings seeking to
        convert to strata title ownership, and outlines certain
        requirements that the Council must ensure are met before
        approval may be given, including consideration of "priority of
        rental accommodation over privately-owned housing in the
        area";

        AND WHEREAS the Municipal Council may have no policy objection
        to conversion of industrial/commercial buildings to strata
        title ownership, or the conversion of very specific types of
        residential buildings (e.g., an existing one-family dwelling
        on the same site as a newly-constructed infill dwelling);

        AND WHEREAS the Municipal Council may prefer to avoid the
        applicant delay and staff resources required to bring such
        routine applications to Council for approval;

        THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT the Condominium Act be amended
        to enable the Municipal Council to delegate its strata title
        approval authority to its subdivision Approving Officer (or
        other municipal officer as chosen by the Council) for those
        types of existing buildings prescribed by Council resolution,
        and subject to any additional limitations or conditions
        established by the Council.

   involved congratulating them on the event.
