0carne11ie CHISCINI PUBLISHED BY THE CARNEGIE CENTRE 401 MAIN ST. VANCOUVER V6A 2T7 VOLUME II I, N\MlER 6, DECBIBER, 1983. northern christmas It i,ias the fall of 1929 shortly after my sixth birthday. I and my sister were told by our parents that we were going to a boarding school at Fort WHliams, Ontario . I did not want to go and went only after our parents had promised that they would come for us around Christmas time--we would be home for the festive season. Mary and I waited for long week.s,and wishing we were home already. When my Dad and mom brought me a beautiful pair of beaded moccasir.s. My mom must have spent long hours in their making they were so beautifully made. I have not yet seen a pair to match their beauty. Just prior to leaving,Mary and I were given a lot of goodies; at the airbase we were bundled up wannly for the cold flight home. They had to have that large plane to acconmodate all the groceries dad had bought in way of provisions. M}' dad had a trapline about seventy(70) airmiles north of Port Arthur ,Ontario. When we reached our destination.we were greeted by our brothers and sisters. I was especially glad to see my brother George. We helped by unloading the plane, but ITK)Stly by just staying out of the way. After supper, we sat around and chatted about school. I was eager to sell George the idea that he should go to school also. But George did not want any part of it. Meanwhile we were filling ourselves to bursting capacity with soda pop and sweet biscuits. Than,! needed to go to t'",e toilet but I was so fearful of the foreboding darkness outside that I timidly asked my dad if I could use the slop pail to pee in. I got a lecture that it was unsanitary and that I should go and use the outside toilet. I had a tear-jerking tantnin. But that did not work. I left the door ajar so I could reach !:lack in if I needed to. I walked out with one of my brothers moccasins accidently tied t o my feet. I felt so alone when I got outside, the only light was a faint glow from the curtained window and the JTK>On . An owl hooted. My being scared c8.used my senses to be honed to a sharp edge ... I heard dads booming voice, saying go directly to the toilet . Just then, I heard a slight rustling sotDld behind me. I glanced back and I could not see anything. So I made my way again towards the toilet,and I heard the sound again. This time it sounded awfully close by! I spotted a dark object behind me .. as I edged away from it,it would ITK)Ve too. So I gave a great jump ahead and as I did so this object came slapping against my leg. Well that was too much --so I started hollering and screaming .. something was after me. I was doing my best to kick it away,which is near impossible when the object is tied to your foot. Dad had an axe,and he must have severed the lace. And he proceeded to potmd the object into the snow. And when he was through,he said don't cry.I've killed it, whatever it was ... Brother George was sent into the house for a flash-light. When the light was shone,he exclaimed, ''hell, its nothing but a darn rooccasin". And everybody burst out laughing--with the exception of me. I had been truly frightened. Even years afteruard when dad was sitting by the fireside,he would suddenly burst out laughting. And I would ask,what was so funny dad . And he would reply that he was just thinking about the iooccasin that scared the "piss out of me" ,and he would laugh some roore . JOE BOUG!ER G0tdon Gladstone '83 Cheekadee'a Waglisla, B.C. MU010n •• • HUDSON PARK IS MELTING IN TI-IE RAIN In a corrmunity with statistically the lowest amount of veen parkspace per person, the Downtown Eastside is losing parkspace. Recently ,Hudson Park,a small triangle of pine trees, shrubs and wooden roundhouse have been demolished . The wooden roundhouse was built by volunteers on the first YIP Grant in Vancouver . The M::Leans people Spota and Strathcona w~nt to City Hall to get the park l eveled. The reason given was that there were people drinking alcohol in the park .. Its true that people did drink in !he park but rarely m numbers exceeding three and rarely m a manner other than quiet and subdued. The McLeans Park people had to pay for the upkeep of the small park,an~ that seems more likely the real reason the park was ~bol7shed. Also the park is said to be part of a stree! w1denmg of the Georgia Viaduct roadway. The pa":k d7d not seem much used by prostitutes as the trade is with car traffic with men from outside the :~!~ Eastside area picking up women on East Georgia The p~rk was i:iot heavily used but was positively used by,cats,children,bnds and elderly Chinese people practicing Tai Chi. It cost thousands of dollars to tear down the park. Can we really afford to lose these little oasis I o~ green space in the stressful urban core? Or 1s the also a safety measure for ALRT and EXPO 86 users who. are being encouraged to walk from the Thornton Park Station(a park that has been claimed for EXPO 86 users and ALR'! user~ by Social Planner ,Rob Jenkins) . .. to coome:cial Chmatown?

Or, the two yeacs of planning was simply another Goverrunent megaproject crown corporation· farce with no democratic irnput in reality . We await the Master Plan to see if the above rwoors or no Central Waterfront Park where Vancouverites could view the actual working of thej r harbor , is true or not. Again, the park is not blank ,green space as Gainer s~ggests . A long fishing pier,a wooden bandshell for music,benches and tables,pathways,a momuement to Seamen and to the Japanese community would be on the site,plus t!";,e existing Columbia street wharf would be preserved for fishing and viewing. A childrens play has long been included in CRAB plans for thf" site,plus a possible bird marsh like Jericho Beach. A attendants home would also have to be built to upkeep the rark . A shallow wading area was in our plans. ilardly just a simple natural park,although that too . rJo, it would be an active as well as passive space,used by workers for noonhour lunches from the gannent industry and port workers. Watch your newspapers for this news ... . , .If the rumors are true,and there is no real park for 11s,check Carnegie Centre for posters and at the info desk for how you can respond. Corrrnunity groups will likely join with CRAB, to ensure that the conmunity is not ripped-off cf this stablity producjmz park, in a corrmunjty threatened by cement megaprojects. SHORT NEWS SHORT NB,s SHORT NB,s SHORT NB,s SHORT NB'/S BOB ELLIS LETTER TO EDITOR: The NOP must be made aware that their presence in civic elections can only act to lose many potential pro-citizen votes,when in fact,people who have no choice wiJl move over to TEAM . COPE has managed 0ver the years to form an alliance of progressive elements in the city:citizen groups, tenant groups , and labor unions . In my opinion , a slate of citizen, tenant,and labor candidates will be more beneficial to the city than running candidates under the banner of the NOP . Surely, the lesson on Operation Solidarity and the Solidarity Coalition has been significant . For the NDP,running candidates has meant making abortive attempts at taking over TEAM because the leftwing of the NDP had control of the Vancouver Area Council. The NDP has forced many y01.mg people to leave it, over the question of civic politics .... these young people have moved to either TEAM or COPE . A politician who is not tied very tightly to local citizen groups for campaign funds and campaign org:anization,or,whose social life does not revolve around friends in the groups ,is a likely candidate for the rroperty industry should it need his vote. RON SOSTAD GRClJND ZER0-··-11-IE COREPLAN----The Vancouver Coreplan talks about what might happen to the Downtown Penninsula of Vancouver over the next few decades. The Downtown Eastside is part of that area. As a piece on the Coreplan says , ''Vancouver faces a real crunch in the coming years . Put simply ,office space and employment can't continue growing in the core rruch longer without forcing some major citywide changes . .. basically, there are three possible choices to deal with this problem: (I). Limit the cores future growth, (2) .Accom-modate continued· growth by buflding major new transporta-tion facilities for suburban corrmutuers, (3) .Accomnodate continued growth by allowing JOOTe housing for people to live within the city ... " At a Carnegie Centre meeting,ciW planner,Cary lluthula said that ''more housing is need in the Downtown F.astside cormrunity". The planner warned that in five to ten years "gentrification" of the DcMntown Eastside by professional groups (i.e. lawyers ,doctors, business people etc) - -people with money could well happen. People with money "attract Real Estate interests" according to Mr.Huthula,making "rents much higher". The city planner foresees S,OCX) units of housing around the Oppenheimer area,where 3,CX::O units exist now . In the area now DERA is building 55 units on Alexander st. and First United Church is building 70 units on Hastings . A member of the audience at the Carnegie meeting noted that the new units at Carrall and Hastings ,across from Pigeon Park,are too expensive and are still nearly em?ty. It was noted that a building at Gore and Pender was vacant . A problem noted by the city planner in the Oppenheimer area is commuter parking ... people from outside the area parking their cars on Powell and busing fuwntown . Vancouver ITilJSt protect its existing neighborhoods. The Downtown Eastside is almost completely surrounded by megaprojects(i.e.very l arge projects) . ALRT,Expo 86, B.C.Place Stadium , B.C.Pl ace,and Port of Vancouver Master Plan , Canada Place(Pier B.C.)are the Government projects . The B.C.Pl ace Stadium gives the fuwntown Eastside an hour of honking cars and shouting crowds after full Stadium events . The Stadium has by observation and newspaper reports,alcohol probl ems . . . People are getting drunk in the Stadium. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• [iJ(!).(!).% (l?c{}V!Ycf}'Jf/ BOOK: RANKINS LAW, ' RECOLLECTIONS OF A RADICAL ' BY HARRY RANKIN ,NOVEMBER HOUSE , 1975 . Harry Rankin was elected to Vancouver City council in 1_%6 . In 1968 , the Harry Ranki n Election CQ!mllittee and the Vancouver and District Labour Council foTITled the CoTllTiittee of Progressive Electors (COPE). This is a book about Rankin--in the army , in politics, as a lawyer,as a trade unionjst. This is his biography,a ~ok about a man who has fought injustices - -especially for those,for lack of money or white skin or unaccepted ideology, have been denied their basic rights . He makes some very dramatic points in the book. Two of which include: the fact that he and Bruce Yorke worked together for a Grievance Board for tenants at City Hall ... "we got hold of a copy of the Rent Control Act and used it as a model to force counci 1 to set up a Board for tenants 2.bused by unscrupulous landlords". Rankin has been called various names by peopl e because of the way he does things and because of his somet ime abrasive personalit y . The following is an int er esting quote from his book: "The apparent compromises have allowed young r adicals t o attack me quJte regul arly for entering t he political s tructure as it now stands . This ar guement i s that the 3 or 4 part y parli amentary sys t em is wrong , t ha t soc ialsim is the correct answer and that a socialis t should stay outside the system t o fight i t ... "Of course,massive changes in t he sys t em are needed, but in Canada,voting is s till representative of people~ wishes ,and government at certa in levels i s s till very representative of peopl es wishes and demands for change. A lot of young ultra-leftis ts talk about the seizure of power. What force do they represent . they would be imposi ng a sys t em on people not prepared .. not educated for it. 11 Rankin stat es that peopl e engaged in r efoTITIS come to realize the need for massive changes in the system, (need) to accelerate the changes in the community and society. This book is worth r eading: to learn morP about a leader of Vancouvers Reform movement. RON SOSTAD COLE BAY PEACE CAMP-ANTI CRUISE MISSILE PROTEST ,IN SA.SKAldlEWAN : 3 On the border of Alberta and Saskatchewan, the Canadian Government has set aside a huge tract of land in order to test the Cruise Missile. The missile will be tested this comrning January. This land, taken from the CREE PEOPLE, is going to be treated with defoliants. This effectively strips the vegetation of its foliage. As in Vietnam,chemicals can produce cancer and birth defects. About ten(IO)miles from the proposed testing area,in the tiny village of Cole Bay,an all-women pennanct peace camp is in existence: Unlike the large ,wcll-publicized camps that are established in Greenham Comnon,England or, Seneca Falls.New York state., the Cole Bay camp is tiny and a l most l'nknown outside the area . This article is inform Carnegie Ceptre members and area residents that an anti Cruise Missile peace camp does exist in Canada (and to describe my two visits to it). In August I left with a group of Vancouver women who had chartered a bus and organized a six day trip there. It was entirely a coincidence that I saw a pamphl et and decided to join the trip . But I wanted to meet other women who were for peace . I believe that isolation is a curse,as it makes a person believe they are weak and alone. I also feel anger when I see so many unemployed,and millions of dollars poured into perfecting mass death . The campsite was in a birch forest . Soon we were participating in workshops , bathing i n a small river , and visiting the rrnposed bombing sit e . At our camp,decorated boughf made an arch 11nder which we passed. A pit had been dug to contain fire. Around,was laid a blue cloth . Otanting ,we circled the fire. As we stopped chanting one woman described what was going to happen,and showed us the stone which when held,allowed us to speak. First we had thrown five peices of paper on which was written or drawn,our anger and fear of the military establishment . Next,we spoke of the things or people that empowered us . Finally ,we were asked to donate something to tPe blue cloth ,and the resulting collage' to be called the NEW WORLD QUILT. One woman poured some flour so everyone would be fed , another a peace scarf and a Cree woman gave a beautiful beaded belt. Others gave pins,flowers ,and berries . Early next morning we loaded up in the bus and,leaving a few women behind to kP.ep the camp going. It would be a two day return journey . At lunchtime we stopped at the Cold Lake military base for a viril. We weren't surprised to be met near the base by some of Canadas finest . A car had been following us for sane time. In a way it was pleasant to be not i ced . I returned to Vancouver later , but decided to go back to th~ Peace Camp . In late September, six of us drove t here in a converted school bus . The Peace camp was now situa ted in a small house wit hin t he corrununity of Col e Bay . It was t~e first time I had ·ever lived with Native peopl e ; I saw first-hand some of the problems t hey had t o deal wi t h . The 1:>ureac: at ic i nsani t y of the Syst em that i nstalls shiny aluminum sinks ::ind modern bathroom plumbing in a v i llage tha t has no r unning water. A contrac tor made a lot of money . On Oc t ober fi rs t and second there was another camp protest ritual at the original camps ite. Here there was mainly Saskatchewan women. At the end of the ritual,one of the or ganizers shovelled soil on the fire and explained that she was burying the Cruise. She wanted weapons ins tead of people buried. . At present there are three women at the camp. Along with Cole Bay women they take turns visiting Northern Saskatchewan villages to share infonnation on uranium mining and nuclear weapons. In Saskatchewan and here in Vancouver there are support groups for the Peace camp. Canadian women are adding their voices and time and energy t o t!ie massive,international oppos ition to the Cruise and other MASS DEAIB WEAPONS ...

INGRID KOLSTEREN teaches class at CARNEGIE CEITTRE . EXPORT A DRUNK Export -a drunk .. 1.' Expo 86 will show the world that British Columbia means business,and that business means British Colunbia". These are the words of Premier Bill Bennett,October 20,I983. Guess what folks. The Provincial Government says that its willing to shell out some extra money for the Cowntown Eastside!? The Provincial Alcohol and Drug Progra,-n and/or Mike Harcourts' Special Task Force on Alcoholism has come up with a scheme that Tom Campbell (ex-Vancouver Mayor)might have dreamed up as part of one of his attempts to "clean up" Vancouver. Nor surprisingly, Bennett and his. cronies are willing to foot the bill . The proposed treatment system for chronic alcoholics would allow the authorities to force ''habitual" dnmks to undergo compulsory treatment in such exotic places as Vernon,Abbotsford,and Mission. If this program were applied to members of the Provincial Legislature,the N.D.P. just might pull off a successfuly vote of non-confidence. But seriously, if the Premier wants to show the corporate world that the business of B.C. is business,then he and his pals also have to try to show the world that Vancouvers' labour force is docile,God-fearing ,and sober . Mr .Bennett and Mr .Harcourt appear to be of one mind when it comes to workingclass sobriety . Tony Mears, head of the Task Force on Alcoholism , told the Province newspaper: "For some chronics, the further we send them the better" . One ....onders if Mears plans to negotiate with the Provincial Government of Newfoundland . But hey,fellas,why stop wi th alcoholics? All the corporate bar-flies who visit Expo 86 would likely be delighted to find that Vancouver boasts a labour force which contains no handicapped people.no hcmosexuals, and nr, chronically ill people at all_. Why not ship all these nasty people as far away as possible? . . . Then we'd have a city that even Walt Disney would have Jeen proud of . SAM SNOBLELAN.

There is a group of opportunist busissmen called, "Vancouver Townsite Remlissance Cor por,1.ti on" who according to an article in the Sun newspaper on Sept ember 29/83, want to "promote the area by encouraging landowners and developers to take colllllercial and residential activity there and to recycle and rennovate its ol der buildings". Everyone would of course like to see the buil dings in the Downt own Eas tside upgraded and cleaned up . But not at the expense of removal of any existing resi dents . First and for emost the people must not be evicted from their own homes,as poor as their homes may be . Ray Gainer of Port of Vancouver and Paul Manning of B.C. Pl ace are two members in the Townsite Renaissance Corporation board . Neither have shown a sensitive understanding attitude towards the COllllluni ty here. According to Jim Green,organizer for DEAA, the Renaissance Townsite Corporation is a Gover nment Crown Corporation, to "turn t he fuwntown Eas t s ide i nto boutiques . ' ' Premier Bi ll Bermett,however, thi nks Renai ssance Townsite i s just wonderf ul , he says , "it gives me a great deal of pl easure to congr a t ulate Vancouver Towns i te Renai ssaoce Corporation on t he leadership they have shown in spearheading a progr anrne t o revitalize the his t oric. nort heast section of downtown Vancouver". A long name for one Mr . Bennett apparently doesn • t know . . . the Downtown Eas tside . Considering the kind of ''vitalizing" the City did with Gastown, the people of the fuwntown East s ide must l augh at this process of so-called "revi talizing". Gastown has been in a bad slump ever s i nce t hey received all their improvements; local residents were pushed out of their living quarters and now stands empty office ware-houses. Also , this group has plans for the Watefront area from the seabus to Main street . Perhaps they have not heard of the two year local effort s by CRAB (Create a Real Available Beach conrnittee) to get a sirnple ,natural, walk-to ,water-level park on this si te? Anot her business venture i s not what is needed at this time by a corrmunity almost compl etel y surrounded by Government megaprojects . We hope to get further infonnation on thi s hard to find group for a future issue of the CARNEGIE CRFSCENT' . I f;1J0 ~~'jl f !IE<,\,_. OPEAA"Tio'1 C.LE.ANU'P .. B.<.. "D\SPl..~C.E.
