 Provincial Library,  Victoria, B. c.  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Volume 29, number.17  April 27, 1976.  15* par copy  on ntttMSStands  THE PROVINCIAL Lands  Department  last week ordered the village of Sechelt  to cease dumping rocks on the beach.  Village ordered to halt damping  D. R. Hehn, Regional Land  Manager for the Department of  the Environment has advised the  Village of Sechelt that his department is opposed to the dumping  of rock below the high water mark  on Sechelt beach and that further  work on the project wiU not be  allowed to continue. Hehn pointed out that the land from high  ��� water mark seaward is clearly, under provincial and not local jurisdiction and that the department  requires a lease or Ikence of occu  pation to be obtained before placing a structure or dumping fill on  that portion of the foreshore.  Hehn's letter stated that the  Department of the Environment  regretted the deposition of rock  fill on the beach front in trespass,  of provincial rights' and added  that they believe, the large rocks  present a hazard to the public,  block access and detract from the  aesthetic features of the beach.  Hehn also pointed out that storms  will wash away the fine particles  EHSC purchases  ambulances  The Provincial Emergency Health Services Commission has finally purcnased the two Halfmoon Bay  ambulances formerly owned by Joan Clarkson and the  Cummirigham Ambulance Service. Mrs. Clarkson informed the Coast News on Saturday that a representative of the commission had visited the Halfmoon Bay  station last week.to finalize the sale of the vehicles. It  has been two years since the government initially announced its intentions to purchase the vehicles.    .  The purchase of the Clarkson vehicles means thai  the peninsula ambulance service is now entirely in the  hands of the EHSC. Joan Clarkson will continue to  . operate the service as an employee of the commission  at least until the ambulances are moved to Sechelt next  ,fall.     .     ,  '.  of sand and gravels and that almost continuous maintenance will  be necessary in order to prevent  the fill from becoming ah increasing danger.  The letter ended by informing  the council that any person or  organization that allowed further  dumping would be required to  remove the fill from the property.  The letter was written after an  inspection of the area by District  Land Manager, Larry Sorkenand  Village Clerk Tom Wood. Alder;  men felt they had done nothing  wrong as the village has been  dumping fill into this area for the  past eight years and no one had  complained. Council was unaware  of the provincial jurisdiction over  the property and felt it was the  village's job to prevent further  cmtAon of the foreshore.  Council notes  that work  Sunshine Coast receives  3000 trees  The Sunshine Coast hasnow  received 3000 of the 2.6 million  trees the new Socred government  inherited from the NDP administration. The trees, originally purchased by the Barrett government  for use in connection with Habitat, were picked up by a truck'  from Gibsons Council and distributed to the Regional District and  both villages.  Sechelt Council announced at  last Wednesday's meeting that  they had received 900 of the small  seedlings and had then distri  buted them to various members  of the community who had expressed a desire to look after the  trees until they were ready for  planting. Local logger and businessman Ted Osborne took 150  of the trees; Mrs. Mavin took 30;  the Jaegars, 30; Aid. Dennis Shut  tleworth - 30; William Wilson -  60; Dave Hayward - 60; the Hansons - 40; the McDermotts -SO  and the Lagoon Society has also  received_60 seedlings which will  be planted around the new  reserved.  Sechelt Village Council''noted  without comment" at last Wednesday night's meeting that the  alterations demanded by the arbitration board in respect to Hay-  den Killam's OK Tire Store bunding had not yet been^started and  that it was doubtful whether they  could be completed by the April  26 deadline. .'.-.'���.'.  The council instructed Village  Clerk Tom Wood to contact the  village solicitor and act according  to his advice if Killam failed to  make the necessary changes.  There was some discussion as to  whether council had inadvertently  let Killem off the hook at the last  meeting by agreeing to set up a  special meeting to discuss the  problem and read a written brief  from Killam and Bis solicitors.  The council felt that agreement to  these prbposalshad in no way deferred the deadline for the alterations and that Killam was still  bound to follow the board's  rulings.

The complaints originated with a "ratepayers  group" of Seaside Village residents who were unhappy with  ^progress of building on the lots by the subsidiary Inter  facial Designs. Interfacial's creditors had further placed  liens on residents' properties which prevented them from obtaining clear title to the property after the building was  complete.  mess  The first person to speak at the  hearing. was the attorney for  Glenmont Holdings, R. N. Monroe. Monroe admitted that the  major problem with the Sechelt  building program was undercapitalization and stressed that Glenmont had no part m the building  end of the operation. He said the  company had originally only intended to sell the lots.. The attorney also' pointed out that Glenmont was not trying to deny, any  responsibility for the current  problems and-that they were vitally interested in cleaning up the'  building problems so thaTthe lot  sales could again go ahead.  Attorney Scott Stewart represented .the other named companies, Union Steamsmps Ltd., Sechelt Lands Ltd., Interfacial De:  signs Ltd., S. James &. Associates Ltd., Stanley James and Bud  pairns. Stewart addressed himself to each of the five points mentioned m the superiiite  ���order. He claimed that contrary to  representations interim agreements were available at the Sechelt office and suggested that  if it was not considered to be the  proper place for the storage of the  ^documents there would be no  problem in removing them to the  Glenmont office in Vancouver.  .Stewart contested the superintendent's claim that aO monies were  not paid into the Glenmont trust  account and stated that except for  one case where a cheque was accidentally deposited into Interfacial and immediately returned  to Glenmont that.all monies had  been handled in the proper  fashion. He admitted that prior to  August 1975 no receipts had been  collected for the reading of the  prospectuses but claimed that all  potential buyers had been offered.  the chance to read the document  and that after August 1975 receipts had been obtained.  Stewart strongly denied claims  that purchasers were required to  build their houses with Interfacial  Designs and pointed out other  cases where competitive contrac- ���  tors had been brought in. The 42  houses Interfacial agreed to build  were offered as a package and no  profit was: expected from the  building contracts.   "  Stewart suggested that the situation could be remedied by proper handling of the prospectuses  and hiring * ***! estate agent so  that Gairhs would be clearly un-  invoh/ed with the sales end of the  project. The Glenmont attorney,  added that the plan was acceptable to him as Gtehmont's  only interest was to see the  houses finished and the sale of  lots opened up again. Monroe  claimed that the sale of lots has  always been independent and  that Gairns was never an employee of the holding company.  He agreed that a mix-up of Gairns,  role would be impossible in the  -future if an independent agent  was appointed to sales.  Stewart further stated that he  realized the real reason for the  hearing was the Hens against the  properties, the unfinished building contracts'and the Interfacial  financial position. He presented  the hearing with a financial report  of   Interfacial's   position   that  showed a total amount of $150,-  000 needed to complete the building program after all assets and  liabilities were totalled. The report showed that suppliers' liens  had been slapped against nine  properties in the development belonging to Rod Moorcroft, George  Hopkins, M. Hatfield, Robert  Haley, Freeman Smith, H. Han,  E. McRann, M. Levesque and the  Sisters of Instruction of the Child  Jesus by six building supply and  trade contractor companies. The  liens totalled $89,980 with over  70,000 of that figure owing to the  provincial subsidiary Crown Lumber. :"  . Stewart elaborated on the report and pointed out that the figure was misleading as the $7,018  Hatfield Hens held by D. S. Clayton and Crown Lumber had already been paid out. The attorney  also noted that Crown Lumber  hens were in excess of the accounts payable by almost $25,000  He estimated that, in feet,  $60,000 would easily clear up the  lien problem. The report also  noted that Interfacial owed a further $28,089 in refunds to property owners and would need an infusion of $18,739 to complete the  houses now under contract. The  original estimate of a further  $150(000 in capitalization was  thereby reduced to a figure of  $107,739. A further flow of at  least $20,000 was claimed from  payment of mortgages that had  been withheld by die banks due  to the liens on the properties  which Stewart claimed brought  the actual cash input figure down  to approximately $87,000.  Stewart then presented the  superintendent with a copy of a  certificate of title of a 3Vi acre  piece of property on Bowen Island  which Stan James had agreed to  sell to provide Interfacial with the  necessary funds to clean-up the  operation. Stewart claimed that  the property had been evaluated  two years ago at $150,000 and  was therefore sufficient to provide the necessary funds to the  building subsiduary immediately  upon sale.  ~ Stewart also informed Cantell  that an agreement had been  reached for the supply of necessary materials wnh Sen Western  Ltd., a Vancouver based bunding  supply firm. Stewart promised  mat all obligations would be met  and that work would continue as  fast as possible.  Stewart then proposed that the  hearing be adjourned for 60 days  and Monroe .������ agreed providing  that he was allowed to address  himself to the superintendent's  complaints at a later date. Monroe further asked that Glenmont  be allowed to continue lot sales  during the adjournment but Cantell felt it would be necessary to  suspend the six prospectuses that  cover the sale of the development  and to request Glenmont to file  one new prospectus that named  all the parties of the operation  (CnuwwideaPsgeS)  s^nmrtnm  X-~ fimi +_���*���*.,  byDOUGSEWELL  Larry Sorken, District Land  Manager for the Department of  nie Environment has contradicted  local claims that the marina now.  being "built in Porpoise Bay by  Len Van Egmond would cause en-,  vironmental damage to die area.;  Sorken's statements ,��� were;  made in a letter to Secndt council after some Sechelt residents  and MLA Don Lockstead expressed concern over the foreshore  lease granted to Marine View Estates that would allow the go-  ahead on the marina. Sorken said  he expected very little pollution  to occur as the lease does not allow people to live on houseboats',  and there will be no sale of oil or  gas products at the wharf. He  further stated that he felt the  flushing action along that section  of the bay should be good and  that the objections to overcrowding were strictly a matter of degree and not entirely within his  jurisdiction.  Sorken's letter, further stated  mat the decision was made on the  basis that no adverse environ  mental reports had been filed  against the project and admitted  that council's lack of objection to  the, development had been a major factor in making the decision.  Sorken also disregarded the  noise factor as being irrelevant  because of the present airplane  noise and the minimal increase in  the actual number of boats in the  bay. He pointed out that the letters he had received from local  residents dealt mainly with issues  which were a matter of opinion or  of aesthetic beauty, not hard facts  on possible pollution dangers.  In a Friday afternoon interview Sorken added that the reports referred to by MLA Don  Lockstead last week, again dealt  merely with aesthetic beauty and  not with possible environmental  hazards. Sorken claims that  neither Fish and Wildlife nor the  Federal Fisheries department  have ever actively objected to the  proposal.  The final statement of his letter would seem to sum up the District I^and Manager's feelings on  the matter: "Environmental convert is like motherhood. It is so  easy for someone to holler pollution if they want to stop a project  but they should become more  specific/' *   '';.'���  Nel Jaegar, one of the local  residents who is opposing the  new majdtaitfflL feels that Sorken's letter does not properly deal  with the effects on the bay. She  is worried that the fishing on  Poise Island wifl be ruined and  the increased activity will chase  away the birds and wildlife from  the. area. Mrs. Jaeger admits  however that there is very little  hard evidence of possible environmental damage,  Sechelt council attempted to  discuss the situation at the last  meeting but ended up getting  bogged down to different versions  of the council's reactions to the  project in the two year period  since the marina was first proposed. The original application  submitted in October, 1974 was  accepted by council with only  a few minor objections to the size  of the moorage facilities. This original plan has.since been "mis-  Wharf project delayed by sewer vote  Vic Walters, the rjrincipal shareholder of Port of Call Enterprises,  has been informed by the Department of Environment that it is unwilling to renew the Port of Call  lease on the site of the old Sechelt  wharf until the department is informed of the company's plans in  regard to replacing the structure.'  The District Land Manager's letter asked Walters to think  through the environmental impact of the project, particularly  with regard to sewer waste, solid  waste, utilities and roads before  submitting a final plan. The letter  commended Port of Call for their  efforts in cleaning up the debris  left by the fire that destroyed the  old wharf five years ago and informed the company that their application would receive a first  priority treatment because of die  good intent shown.  Village Clerk Tom Wood later  said the letter had resulted from  an inspection of the beach by the  District Land Manager, Larry  Sorken on April 7. Wood admitted  that the village is concerned over  die renewal of the lease as it  may possibly conflict with die outfall of the proposed sewer system. He felt that there would be  little delay in approving the lease  and wharf plans when the village  knew for certain whether the system would be approved. Wood  suggested it might be necessary  for die village to procure an easement over the lease to allow for  sewer construction.  The matter will be further discussed by council after next  month's sewer by-law referendum.

The provincial government's economic blueprint for British Columbia will  guarantee the greatest surge of prosperity that this province has ever seen,  Premier Bill Bennett said in his address winding up the budget debate in  the legislature.  The Premier said this province was  currently in a period of restraint but the  future never looked brighter.  "Our province has the energy; we  have the resources; we have the people;  we liave the expected markets from our  position relating to the Pacific Rim," the  Premier was quoted in a press release issued by his own press secretary.  Now, hold on a minute, Mr. Premier.  What was all this doomsday talk a few  weeks ago? What was all this about our  province being so destitute because of the  previous government's financial mismanagement? If the foreseeable future already looks so rosy why did you burden  the over-burdened taxpayer with an extra  two percent sales tax?  You realize, Mr. Bennett, of course,  that by raising the sales tax, you are hurting the pocket book of the ordinary w6rk-  ing man whose pocket book really can't  afford to hurt much more. And you realize Mr. Premier, that because our province has energy, because our province  has resources, and because our province  is in a good market position among Pacific Rim countries, that it's the corpora  tions of this province who are going to  benefit directly.  And that's good because we all like  to see our corporations in a healthy position. But couldn't you, Mr. Premier,  have chosen to raise the corporate taxes  to cover that two percent sales tax increase ��� an increase, by the way that  amounts to 40 percent, and which no  wage increase, thanks to our participation  in the anti-inflation program, will ever  match..  You see, Mr. Premier, corporations,  as you are quite well aware, have a way of  plowing their profits under in order to  make more profits, to make more profits ... And ideally, a government should  stand for its people first, not for its corporations.  But of course your .philosophies do  not agree with that because you view this  'province as a corporation that in itself  must make a profit.  Are we, the people of this province  then, supposed to sit back and clap while  your Social Credit government puts this  province in the black. Are we supposed to  applaud while you cut back necessary services, raise taxes, amd then tell us that  this province is about to experience the  greatest surge of prosperity that we have  ever seen?  Mr. Premier, we are not. merchandise in a hardware store.  Cy  mcism is no answer  We find the negative attitudes expressed about the Habitat Conference to  be held in Vancouver next month to be  quite amazing. We-hope some of the cynical attitudes now manifesting themselves are only very remote. And we are  not yet cynical enough ourselves to believe the majority of people think in this  vein.  One newspaper editor, last week, for'  instance, complained about the fact that  he had had enough of Habitat and if he  hears any more he thinks he will scream.  We concede that we are being bombarded with Habitat information but we  wonder if the above mentioned editor,  and other people like him, are listening  enough to understand what this information really has to say.  In another part of this paper, D. J.  Hauka has explained some of the reasons  for holding the Habitat Conference. We  trust that the majority of our young people are as aware of the world's future  problem as much as D. J. is and we feel a  little bit more secure that the world will  soon be in the hands of such young  people.  The facts concerning the> future  problems of the world are pointed out in  D. J.'s column and we will not go into  them again here. Habitat was called by  the United Nations in the hopes of overcoming some of these problems before  those same problems overcome the world  and the human race. It was set up to stimulate innovation, serve as a means for the  exchange of experience, and ensure the  widest possible dissemination of new  ideas and technologies in the field of  human settlements.  It is estimated that the direct cost  of Habitat to the Canadian government is  about $14 million. That is no small  amount of money. But Habitat is no  Olympics extravaganza and it must be  countries such as Canada, with the second highest per capita income out of all  countries in the world, that must be prepared to stake something on the future  of the world.  Perhaps the Habitat conference will  not provide any magic solutions to our'  future population, food and housing problems, but it will do a lot more than cynicism and indifference.  You've slipped, baby  For all those starry-eyed souls who  say of women ��� "you've come a long  way baby;" here are the facts. Montreal  columnist Dian Cohen finds from the women's bureau that women workers are  slipping ��� in the amount of pay they take  home, as compared with men.  Even baby-sitting is not sacred. The  average 60-year-old male full-time sitter  made $5,536 yearly ��� compared to the  woman sitter's $2,099!  When men are outstripping women .  at such traditional work as looking after  the baby all that can be said for the  women of Canada is "you've slipped a  long way baby."  '���"."���':>������'.'

It was, unfortunately.  I say unfortunately because my  stomach had, during the past two  days, seen fit to accept only a  stale Ritz cracker, a bit of mushroom soup, and ah yes, I admit, a  taste;, or two of that fabulous  French apple tart purchased on  Granville Street in a rash moment  only a few days before. I walked  and my head throbbed with every  step I took. I groped for the aspirins like a junkie for his fix.  With all passible bodily energies fixed on healing the flu-  wounded patient, effective cerebral activity ground to a halt and I  wanted nothing more but to sit  meekly and stare at a blank wall.  My house does not contain any  blank walls so I opted for the television set instead.  And so I found my eyes transfixed on the great diversion that  gives this nation its raison d'etre,  the diversion that I, and probably  every other Canadian boy, had  Commentary  byDOUGSEWELL  'Movable bridge' or 'users should pay'?  There are few questions more  basic to the quality of life oh tine  Sunshine Coast than . adequate  ferry service at a reasonable rate.  Our whole style of living depends  on being able to go to Vancouver for a day's shopping or an  evening at the theatre. t ...  If the cost of ferry service doubles, as the provincial government has promised, not only wfll  we lose these pleasures, but a  large, part of our tourist dollar  will also vanish. It is imperative  that Jack Davis re-thinks ��� his  "users should pay" thesis and  realizes that the ferry system is as  important to the Sunshine Coast  as Lions Gate is to West Vancouver/ 7 ��  One of the major problems witir  a government taking over any private function is that they somehow seem to feel that since that  function was once run as a money-  making venture, regardless of the'  inequality  of the  situation,   it;  should always continue as such.;  The takeover of roads and bridges  has been the only exception to.  this   rule.   The  Cariboo  Road,,  Lions Gate, Deas Tunnel and the 7  inland ferries on Kootenay Lake j  and across many of the province's j  rivers were all at one time profitable business ventures but have.;  since been recognized as > part of:  the highway system and exempt- ��� ���  ed from tolls. How the government can justify running free fer- ���  ries in the interior while claiming.  that coastal ferries must pay their  own way is beyond my comprehension. If our tax dollars are currently being used to supply other  areas with viable means of transportation and communication are  we not also entitled to that same  service?  The obvious alternative to bickering over rate - increases every  few years is for the provincial  government to declare their intention to immediately build a  road from Squamish to Port Mellon. It may mean a 70 mile drive  into town but surely that is preferable to being open to absurd increases in the ferry rates and declining service in the years to  come. With a good highway Vancouver would only be about an  hour and a half away. A bridge  would be even better stin but at a  cost of anything up to $50 million  it hardly seems feasible. The span  from Horseshoe Bay to Bowen  would, be just too long. The provincial government therefore has  a choice between building the  highway and recognizing the fact  that the ferry system is a part of  the provincial road system and  entitled to, if not free, then at  least easily affordable fares.  The new rates will tut the commercial and recreational vehicles  the hardest and this cost will be  passed along to the consumer by  way of higher prices and a deflat- ,  ed tourist economy. Even if you  rarely go to Vancouver you will  feel the pinch of the new increases, the cost of your groceries will  rise by a few cents, the local restaurant will experience a decline  in tourist business and be farced  to raise its prices and many of the  tourist oriented businesses such  as niarinas, motels and fishing resorts wul simply be unable to  maintain the volume necessary to  survive. In short the increases  win mean a higher cost of ttvihg,  some unemployment and less access to the benefits of Vancouver.  If the food service and comfort  - of the ferries was increased it  might be almost excusable to propose an increase in tariffs,  but at the same time as the government is consklering the rate  increases it is also^ considering-  eliminating food service and has  recently cut back by almost 12%  the number of crew on each vessel. If these savings are still not  . sufficient to allow for the rates  to remain at least at their present  level it would' seem to me that  mere is little hope of improving  the finances of the system without  adopting a new criterion for providing the service.  Other proposals, such as those  contained m the "Stott Report,"  an internal document released by  the Sunshine Coast Regional District, have mainly been concerned  with providing fast, efficient, low-  cost service for those of us who  frequently travel to Vancouver.  Unfortunately they seem to have  become side-tracked from the  most important aspects of the  problem, protecting the tourist  dollar and keeping the.transport  cost of commercial goods within  reasonable bounds. The commuter cards system if considerably  revised could protect the interests  of the local people who regularly  use the system but wul do nothing  to hah the escalating cost of living  that will arise from the doubled  feres.-  In an editorial in last week's  "Shopper" publisher Dick Proctor stated that the increases were  justified because "the tourists  won't be slowed down one bit"  then in the next paragraph stated  thai "The people whowill be hurt\  . are those who have big campers  and the like." Not only is this  statement gramaticaUy atrocious  but the implied logic that tourists  do not arrive in campers is ridiculous. This coast has a fantastic  tourist potential which cannot be  ignored, but when the president  of the Chamber of Commerce  makes a statement like.this it  only helps to weaken a community effort to have the government  re-think its policies.  The people of the Sunshine  Coast have the power to make the  government take a second look at  the increases if we.act in unison.  If not we will just have to sit back  and bear the increases as they  come.

FIERY QUESTIONS \  The following is a copy of a letter from the Gibsons Volunteer  Fire Department to Education,  Minister Pat McGeer on the sub- ���  ject of school fires:  Dear Sir: In your capacity as.  I.C.B.C. President and Education  Minister we trust you win take the  following under advisement: if,  you intend to split fire losses between school districts (taxpayers)  and Education Dept.: reduce fire  losses by reviewing Provincial  and local bunding policies!  1. Why are schools allowed to  be built in areas of inadequate  water supply in the first place?  2. Why aren't Sprinkler Systems mandatory ��� or even some 7  progress towards this in older  schools?  3. The use of smoke and/or  heat detectors to a central alarm  to the nearest Fire Department  should be mandatory.  4. School building codes must  be reviewed to ensure new  schools in progress have these '  tools, and some review of existing  schools should be made and allow  these to be upgraded to standards '  to be policed by the Fire Marshall's Officer.  5.

We realize proper protection is a high capital cost ��� but  so is a replacement school, not '  withstanding other factors of in- -  surance, upset to a community,  and the many other items not  covered by insurance.  You are now in an ideal position  to co-ordinate this problem with  your Departments and the Fire  MarshaU's Office and it is hoped  you wUl take appropriate action  rather than not solving a problem  but passing the cost to the public.  ���GIBSONS VOLUNTEER  FIRE DEPARTMENT  WARRING FACTION  The following is a copy of a letter sent to the Sunshine Coast  .Regional Board:  Gentlemen: Re your letter of  March 8 in which planner Adrian  Stott states "further, as a result  of the Land Commission Act the  regional district is amending its  sub-division by-law to place this  property in a zone in which the  minimum parcel permitted would  be two hectares or 4.9 acres." ; ���  May I point qut that wars have  been started for less reasons than  trying to grab free land at the expense of the title-holder. What  are you trying to do: get a free  green belt on die highway?  Let's stick to the old by-laws  where you could sub-divide according to the water, sanitation,  etc. that was voted on by plebiscite, in other words, was okayed  by the voters and not by some socialist-minded planner who is  rapidly gaining a great deal of  enmity over his public meetings  at which he has failed so far. You  are letting him do your jobs as our  elected representatives in forming policy. He is a paid civfl servant and as such should confine  himself only to ruling on existing  by-laws and advising council  when asked to.  The people of B.C. threw out  the NDP in the last election because of their screwball concept  that land belongs to no individual  but the government. Surely,  you're not going to run that concept down our throats fhrough the  regional board actions. This  amendment is also going to, and  has already, created a situation of  row hving and smaU lots with  cheap houses in the village, with  aU its problems, under the excuse  ' that this.is the best way to keep  taxes down in the regional district  in thefuture.  This tax-freeze is erroneous  and only a cover-up for condensing land speculation opportunities for development promoters in  the villages at the disadvantage of  the open spaces, i.e. you can control future niaintehance costs by  taxing directly and solely to the  developed area.  .: Such services may be demanded by them and not the region as  a whole. The sewer system and  water works .are a sample. Trie  users pay, the non-users do not.  No one but a nervous nuuionaire  wants a large tract of land for one  or two houses. One-half or one  acre of land in a rural area should  be ideal for a single dwelling  fanuly. to handle without denuding the land as a whole.   :  We already have a young man  in the B.C. Highways department ���'���  who rules' oh roads and makes'  sure you don't get your deeds unless you give the land to them  free. And if he happens to goof,  that's bad enough without adding  your planning officer's policy to  the mishmash of fantastic argument and delay.  What right-have you got to  close the propertylraatfeet io the ''  buyer who wants a half or one  acre plot for living in a rural .atmosphere if he so chooses, providing this property wul provide  him with potable water and a proper septic tank facility? ;  It is a rare case where such a  buyer would demand sidewalks,  street lights, etc. and if he did his  neighbors would soon squelch  that idea because of costs.  In conclusion, gentlemen,  along with the owners of the property we live on, I have checked  out other holdings via their  owners who have had dealings  with the planning department over the past year and without exception they.have found the planning office acting only on policy.  The word "policy" can mean the  opinion of one or two people and  not the law.  Needless to say, these owners  are angry, but feel they don't  want to come out in the open and  say so. I feel differently, however,  hence this appeal.  I recently saw a map of projected roads to cover a group of rather long lots below D.L. 3554, in  the Roberts Creek area by your  planner, These roads look like a  spider's tracks, none of them  leading anywhere, aU the roads  end in land-wasting turnabouts.  How can the owner with the turnabout on his-land co-operate with  his neighbors in seeking sub-division when he loses more than his  neighbor does?  This whole unnecessary, projected road plan looks like a good  proposition for a speculator to  move in and buy one or two lots  and blockbust the rest for cheap  prices and make himself a IdUing.  Also, what is the use of this  type of planning when the highways department nabobs might  change it all anyway in the  future?  ���ART JAMES,  Robert Creek.  been passionately involved with  as a youth.

Referees? We didn't have any.  Nobody wanted to stand on the  side to watch the game. And in  fact we never needed referees'  because the hard-rock hockey  player was not the title you-wanted to achieve. Being labelled a  dirty player was a great 'insult.

Letters to the Editor  PAY-OFF  Editor: Belonging to the right  political party and maybe having  a .bfc\of money to support it has  been proven many times to pay  off, and it has happened again.  Despite aU the public protest,  public meetings and the Sechelt  Council voting against it, Mr. Van  Egmohd's marina is going ahead  anyway.  The Gibsons Wildlife Club was  one of those on record as objecting on environmental grounds  and wiU continue to protest in the  strongest terms, die flagrant way  in which die objections of our  MLA Don Lockstead, the Fish and  Wildlife branch, the Federal Fisheries and the Dept. of Lands  branch, together with those of the  people themselves, were completely overruled and ignored by  the Sechelt Village Councfl, who  apparently changed their minds  abom\{��e marina and gave the go  ahead to Mr. Van Egmond.

GLORIOUS WISDOM  Editor: I should like to express  my deep appreciation to the provincial government for the excellent job they are doing to save  my.tax dollars. The only section I  would like to concern myself with  at this time is the B.C. Ferries.  Because of the lack of adequate  medical services here I have to  travel to Vancouver for same. I  made the mistake of doing so on  Thursday, April 15.1 lined up on  the upper levels, feeling such a  stranger among afl die Washington and Alberta plates and the  boats and trailers and campers ���  trying to get home. Imagine my  surprise after the many hours to.  find in aU their glorious, wisdom  die ferries were not running their  late sailing on the heavy traffic  date, but on the holiday Friday  night after aB the traffic would be  where it was going.  This of course was in accordance with what was laid down in  the published schedules. (Don't  rely on common sense ��� tf it is  printed, do it.) By the same token  we can expect that the other late  sailing wul be on Sunday as it'  says in the schedule. Lo and behold .'someone has had a brain  wave Saturday and rescheduled  the late sailing to Monday. Now  we have people spending the  night Sunday at the langdale terminal. They expected a late sailing.  You may be asking where the*  government money (your money)  comes into this. WeU, let's see.  An extra sailing of the Suite '  Thursday night would have been  two hoUrs overtime at'time-and ���  one half for about 20 people, also  the same for Sunday night because Easter Sunday is not a  holiday according to die government contract. Now Good Friday  and Easter Monday are holidays  so aU day they earn double time  and then we can add the overtime for extra sailings on these  days.  WeU done. This move was almost as intelligent as putting  ICBC insurance on the two golf  carts in the terminal last February, seeing as how they won't be  run until June and Jury, if at all.  Of course this little'extra ICBC  money is needed to loan to the  government to help pay off the  ferry deficit.  I wish an you people out there ���  who took your vehicles off the .  road because of ICBC would put  them back on so that ICBC could  lend some more money to die  government so they could pay me  the money they have owed me  since January ��� money I had to  spend on government business ��� to be reimbursed later  ���much later.  ���D.BROCKLEBANK ,  Gibsons.

Certainly, with grocery budgets being tightened, one must be  conscientious when shopping and  planning a balanced diet.  Protein is an essential for  growth and maintenance but it  is possible to eat enough without  resorting to goldfish ��� or even  meat for that matter.  Meat has an aura of quality and  satisfaction. Not many folks  would consider serving their family a good meal without meat-as  the focus on the plate. Meat is  status in our society and a symbol  of wealth. When guests come to  dine, it is essential to plan a  hearty meal of meat, poultry  or fish.  I originally decided to become  vegetarian for several reasons.  Since I have suffered in the past  from minor arthritic pains, I felt  that restricting foods with gout-  related proteins would help my  discomfort.  I am also quite concerned with  the over consumption of meat  products in our society which are  upsetting the ecology of the  world's sources. If we aHhad to  witness the slaughter of animals  for flesh foods, far less meat,  would decorate the dining platter,  I am sure.  There is a great deal of protein  being wasted. Not only are we  ignoring the land which could be  used to greater advantage for  plant protein production but our  meat consumption is in such  abundance that about 15 percent  more protein is ingested than is  used in the body for physiological  buUding blocks. The excess certainly is an expensive fuel since it  is converted to carbohydrate or  fat for storage.  Complementing non-flesh proteins is not reaUy a new concept.  It has been practiced for centuries  "Complementation" involves  combining two plant proteins to  create one improved protein  which is equivalent to animal protein. The system is quite simple:  grains, rice, corn, legumes (split  peas), beans, nuts, seeds, eggs'  and milk products can be mixed  one with the other so that aU the  eight essential amino acids are  provided for ceU maintenance and  growth.

Snack  trail mix (nuts, seeds and dried  fruit munchies)  ��� 7 Vegetarians must be more conscious of their diet than others to  insure an adequate protein and  nutrient intake. Their nutritional  status is more likely better than  the general population except  some extreme zen-macrobiotic  vegetarians who have gained infamy in medical journals for their  severe vitamin B12 depletions  and wasting of tissues.  'Generally, meatless eating is  exciting, delicious and most  healthful.  Alack  of quality  These quotes from a  government - industry -  labour seminar, held in  October, 1975, describe  the number one problem of  Canadian small business:  quality of labour.  e ��� ���  A "no fail" education  system drained of competition, UIC benefits for 44.  weeks after eight weeks'  work r- the causes have  been building for year's.

"Revenge budget" ��� Lockstead  "The Social Credit budget is a  revenge budget, a budget which  hurts ordinary people," stated  Don Lockstead, NDP MLA for  Mackenzie recently in the legislature. .Lockstead decried the increases in the sales tax, medical  plan premiums, and the dairy  rates for hospital care as the  "most vicious types of taxes conceivable/' Cutbacks fat ambulance services will affect especially people in remote areas of the  province, such as those in Ins own  riding of Mackenzie, and wfll  make it more difficult to get them  Lockstead predicted that there  wfll have to be a very substantial  increase in school taxes or a reduction in teaching staff, a reduction of 40 to 50 teachers in the  Powell River School District alone  and an increase in class sizes because the amount of money allotted for education in the budget  will not be sufficient to nMh��t*h|  present standards.  Locjstead called on the government to table the Simmons and  Co. report in the economic poten  tial of Ocean Falls which was  commissioned by former Forests  Minister Bob Williams, but has  not yet been tabled in the House.  "Ocean Fans should not be allowed to deteriorate or to be sold to a  private corporation because h is  an economically viable and socially valuable operation,'' he said.  On the subject of timber resources, Lockstead said that a  number of tree farm licences are  coming up for renewal in die next  /few years, but lie urged the government to not even consider renewing them until the Peatse  Royal Commission report on the  forest industry is completed.  Lockstead also called on the  government to expand the ferry  service to remote communities in  his riding. "These remote communities have the right to ferry  service," he said. He proposed a  connecting link from Bella Coola  to Ocean Falls to Befla Bella, and  that the Queen of Sydney be  placed on a direct route from  Sattery Bay at Powell River to  Horseshoe Bay. "Many smaller  private coastal shipping companies that presently serve remote communities are experiencing severe financial difficulties,"  he added. "For this reason, I suggest that the government launch a  comprehensive study into the  coastal ferry service."  He said many programs to help  native Indians: had been instituted by the NDP while in office.  "The NDP," he said; "created  economic development programs  and guaranteed loans for indtvidi  ual projects suggested by theyln*  dians." He cited the purchase of  the Arctic Harvester, a fish boat,  and the hotel and Coop at Bella  Bella as examples of these pro-.  grams. He urged the present government to continue to follow the  pattern of progress set up by the  NDP, but he said that he was  "extremely disappointed" with  Finance Minister Evan Wolfe's  comments in the House Wednesday night against the NDP assistance in the purchase of the  "Arctic Harvester" fish boat for  the Sechelt Indian band.

A second re-  : vised plan was apparently pre-  : seated to council in April 1975  arid after a public hearing on re-  zoning which advocated rejection  of the proposal, council saw fit to  ���: rezone the she as "Parks, Recrea-  tion and Open Area" to allow the  , building of the moorage facilities.  Along with the rezoning, coun-  ' cil also.specified that one of the  ' uses of the PRO zoning would be  ; "moorage."  The  definition   of  moorage in the zoning bylaw, as  opposed to the definition of a  commercial marina, is any dock or  '. float for the purpose of mooring a  boat and "the facility shall not  ; extend more than 115 feet from  the high water mark..."  From these definitions then; it  : seams' council did object to a mar-'  ; ina Ibut not to moorage facilities %  \ asClbng as such facilities did riot  ' goTbeyond the 115 feet.  .  Council continued to object to  ; whatjfhey claimed was me excessive size of the marina but other-  ��� wise ^ apparently supported the  concept at a regular meeting on  ' April 16,1975. However, many of  ; the people who attended that  Tmeetirig left with the definite im-  ; pression that council had vetoed  \ the whole project. That week's  ��� newspaper reports on the subject  are in direct contradiction to the  ��� official minutes kept by Village  . Clerk Tom Wood. Wood insists  I that four out of five of the village  'council  members have always  been* in favor of the development.  Aid. Dennis Shuttleworth.being  the' only one objecting to the  marina. However, the informal  atmosphere of the council meetings and a lack of proper motions  and votes on each subject make it  difficult to determine what actual occurred at the session.  -��� In- a letter to Sorken on April  24, one week* after the council  meeting, Wood informed the Department of Environment that Sechelt Council would give the matter "favorable consideration" if  the wharf did not extend more  man 115 feet seaward from the  high water marie arid if more detailed plans were made available  for their; study. The letter also informed Sorken that local residents had been unhappy about  the project at the public zoning  meeting ind;asked that.the pollution questions they raised be  answered by the department as  the council did not have the necessary techjncalkncwledge.  The liFfoot projection stipulation demanded at the regular  meeting was later excluded at a  special meeting on May 5. A portion of the development was also  included as an Rl zoning in the  new zoning By-law 146 which was  also discussed at that meeting.  A letter to Sorken on May 9,  1975 stated that the village had.  .dropped, all objections to the  marina-subdivision. A letter to  Don Lockstead on the same day  informed me MIA that council  had no objections to the marina  and reported on the outcome of  the public zoning meeting.  At last Wednesday's meeting  council decided that the problem  was "out of council's hands."  Aid. Thompson asked whether  the new Bylaw 146 would allow  ��� the project to build on the proposed site. The bylaw which is expected to finally be received as  law within the next few weeks  states that part of the area is  zoned Rl. Council was not sure  whether or not this would make  the Van Egmond development  non-conforming. It was decided  mat the zoning question should  be referred to the village solicitor  for his advice.  After much further discussion  on this complicated issue council  finally decided on a three part approach: 1.) table the correspondence from MLA Don Lockstead  asking for council's opinion on the  ��� granting of the lease; 2.) seek  ��� legal advice; 3.) request a recon-  sideratiofi and re-presentation of  the whole proposal. Wood was  given the go-ahead to continue  handling matters as he saw fit.  MLA Don Lockstead has been  unavailable for comment this  week but it is stated in his letter  Sunshine Coast News. April 27.1976.  Referendum date set  Sechelt Council announced at  last Wednesday night's meeting  that a tentative date has been set  for the referendum on By-law 118  the Regional District legislation  that will create the Sechelt Sanitary Sewer Specified Area and allow the borrowing of $1.25 million  for the sewer project.  Alderman Morgan Thompson  told council that if all the necessary paper work could be cleared  away in time the by-law wfll go  before the Sechelt voters on May  29. A circular explaining the cost  of the project and the benefits  to be received will be delivered  to each house in the near future.  Hallmark scented candle*,  many sizes and colon, Jost  received.

Classrooms containing student displays will be open from 7 to 8 p.m.  In the gymnasium at 8p.m., a program will consist  of a gymnastics display and an explanation of the new  physical education program.

He .personally recommended  against the lease and there is  some feeling that Van Esmond's  political connections, might be  responsible for the approval.  Sechelt council also expressed  some . concern about whether  there could be any connection between the delay of Bylaw 146,  which could adversely affect the  proposal, amd the surprise decision to allow the lease.

After the meeting Cantell stated that the new prospectus would  be conditionally approved on the  understanding that sales may  again be stopped if the present  iness is not properly cleaned up.  The Seaside Vajage "ratepayers'' group however was less  than satisfied with the hearing.  They felt that they should have  received, a more "concrete"  guarantee and that the price of  die Bowen Island property may  be inflated as a result of the  Union Steamships proposed subdivision on that island.  At a Friday night meeting in  Sechelt the ratepayers inferred  that they would be seeking a continuation of the hearing if positive  action was not. well underway  within 30 days. They still complained, that they.were riot informed of their right to a prospectus arid were not told that it was  possible to use another contractor  or buy the land by itself.  Cantell clearly let it be known  that the Seaside Village developers: would be. watched and were  expected to make good theiTbbfi- 7  gations to purchasers of the lots.  Glenmont, Union Steamships,  Interfacial Designs and the other  Stan James companies were  merely told to get the show back  on the road or else face further  "stop sale" orders.  If the , matter cannot be  straightened out now, it is expected that a long hard battle  through the courts may follow.

But  'Calcutta is also a gateway-  starting point for tours to parts  of India not seen by the average visitor. .:.-  Four hundred miles north of  Calcutta is Darjeeling, "Queen  of; Hill Stations", set in the  foothills of the Himalayas.  From Calcutta, it is a ten hour  train journey, or a ninety minute flight by Indian Airlines to  Bagdogra, about fifty miles  south of Darjeeling. It is well  worth while to make time for  the train ride.  Along the last miles, the  miniature train still puffs  slowly up the steep hills as it  has ;since 1878. The line is  overhung in places by rich  green forests, which are replaced by pine trees and tea  gardens at higher altitudes.  The line gets steeper and  steeper, until it seems that the  train must wheeie finally to a  stop. And then, there is Darjeeling, a jewelled city crowned  with the magnificent backdrop  . of Karichenjunga.  From Darjeeling's charming  bazaars, and cool streets, it is  but a short walk to wooded  hills, tea estates, and parks.  There is a small zoo, a botanical garden, a race course and  the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute presided over by  Sherpa Tenzing who accompanied Sir Edmund Hillary on  the first conquest of-Everest.  For an unforgettable experi  ence, visitors can be driven. to.  Tiger Hill, to watch the sun  rise over Mount Everest. In the  cold of the morning, the sun  . slowly illuminates the snow  clad peaks of the Himalayas,  reaching into dark valleys and  striking icy reflections until the  whole range is tipped with  scarlet and gold. It is a spectacle to strike awe into the  most irreverent heart.  .������  With special permits, it is  now possible to travel in the  border areas of Bhutan, and  south into Assam and Mani-  Pur-7 "'���;'"'.��� ��� ������ -,-  ������>'-.���'������  Assam is particularly lovely,  an unspoilt land of lofty mountains and valleys green with tea  gardens. Its lush "forests teem  with wild life, and endangered  species have been protected in  the numerous sanctuaries -of  Eastern India. In Assam, the  Kaziranga Wild Life Sanctuary  is one of the few places where  the Great Indian Rhinoceros  and wild buffalo can still be  seen in company with tigers,  bison, deer and an astounding  array of wild, birds of every  hue and species. Kaziranga is  at its best between February  and May. <���  The nearest airport for  Kaziranga is Tezpur, easily  reached from Calcutta by Indian Airlines.   .  Just north of West Bengal  lie Tibet, Nepal, and the tiny  Kingdom of Sikkim, with its  magnificent capital, Gangtok.

School board wants approval powers  The Board of Trustees of School  District 46 has asked the Regional  District and the two villages to  consider "adopting by-laws and  procedures which would require  that sub-divisions come before  the board as part of the approving  process".  When the proposal was originally presented to the School Board  it was made clear that the trustees did not actually want the  right to approve or disapprove of  any particular sub-division and  that the recommendation was  merely intended to provide closer  co-operation with the regional  and municipal approval systems.  However this was not made clear  in the board's letters to the local  government offices.  Sechelt Council considered the  request at last Wednesday  night's meeting and clearly indicated that they were against the  School Board receiving the right  to actually approve a new development. Alderman Dennis Shuttleworth stated that there was  already too much interference  from provincial and local governments in this matter and that further approvals would only mean a  longer waiting period between  application and permission to go  ahead and build. Morgan Thompson sympathized with the School  Board's need to be informed of  new developments because of the  effect on its planning function and  suggested that the village require  an additional copy of the application be sent to the School Board  for their information and consideration. He also suggested  that they be invited to attend the  Regional District Technical Planning Committee meetings in an  observer status.  The School Board's Manage  ment Committee originally recommended the proposal because  of the situation at Halfmoon Bay.  A development immediately adjacent to the Halfmoon Bay  School is now threatening to render the school facilities obsolete.  Easter fire  may be arson  An Easter weekend fire at the  residence if Mrs. Shirley Casey in  Selma Park has caused an estimated $1,000 damage to the interior of the home.

A fire report will be filed and  investigation of the blaze will be  continued.  Hotel hosts luncheon  Elphevents  atHphfeta  of  im-  Thfe week's  highlighted by  one nriillianalal.

We recently discussed the feasibility of slave labor, or perhaps, mandatory service.  But   of  the   other  journey.  Having nothing to do on my study  period last Thursday, report cards  having just come out (followed by  the usual sighs, moans, and suicide notes) things were pretty  slow, especially if you had a good  report. So I walked down to the  old Elementary school I used to  attend, to look around. The doors  looked less massive, less imposing. On the way in I was nearly  trampled by hordes of fine folk.  Imagine! little folk! a was the  shortest kid in Elementary and  am one of the shortest m high  school, and the kids were small!)  Inside the door I lost my orientation. The place had changed.  The walls were gafly painted and  postered. The hall stretched forward, there were classrooms once  more. Eventually I found the library. I walked up to Mm. Fuller,  die librarian (she has been librarian stace I was m grade three)  She  was  filing  binary  cards.  "Changed a bit, hasn't it?" I  said. She looked up, and I believe  she was genuinely happy to see  me (not many people are nowadays). We conversed awhile and  looked around. Finally I bade my  fond adieus and left. Just down  the hall I found Mr. Remple. He  had been P.E. teacher when I  left, and is the principal now. He  showed me the jym, and Mr.  Epp, Mr.  Remple and myself  chatted for a while. When I left it  was with genuine regret, that  some very early memories were  now gone forever, but great joy  that in Gibsons, they have and  always wiD' have an excellent  school.

This year's  theme wiD be "Forests...Part of  All Our Lives". The Week is used  to remind Canadians of then* dependence on the forest resource.  This year's focus emphasizes  that the past, present and future  of this country and its people are  tied closely to the vast forests  covering so much of Canada.  The fur trade which generated  early exploration was based on  forest-dependent animals, especially the'beaver. The pattern of  settlement has been mfhiffncrd  strongly by the development of  forest industry. Transportation  routes by water, rail and road  have often been tied to forest-,  based . .communities, and their  associated gervkm and markets.  Forests are indeed part of all  our lives.today. It has been said  that there are at least 5,000 products made from wood, but tins is a  modest estimate of the innumerable Hems which provide the  necessities and comforts of modern living. Furthermore, Canadians are outdoor-loving, people  and their vacations ate often  closely linked with the forest.  WstersheoV are protected .and  wQd^ife sheltered by them. Jobs,  'pleasure, environmental stability  and variety depend greatly on our  ; forest heritage.    ^  "ft is important to remember,"  reminds the Canadian Forestry  I Association, "that forests are a  renewable     resource.     Unlike  ,��� mines, or oil wells, the forests can  . continue forever with proper  management. At present, we are  at an important cross-road and  must be prepared to practise  'more intensive management in  order that Canada's forests can  meet the varied and expanded demands to be placed on it just 25  years hence."  <��L  Sound Construction  Car pen ter-Contractor  x    x.

The Pender Harbour Hotel was  host to a touring B.C. Hotel Association delegation for a luncheon  and promotional meeting in Madeira Park last .Thursday. The  main topic of discussion was the  upcoming Pender Harbour Hotel  fishing derby on the May 24  weekend.  Forty-two people attended the  buffet .luncheon including Frank  Berger, president of the association and manager of the King's  Hotel in Victoria; Louis Vaknti,  past president and manager of  Vancouver's Astoria Hotel, Arthur Oades of the Bayshore; Joe  Fasen of Prince George's Simon  Fraser Hotel and Bernard Schell  of the Windsor in Peace River.  The guest speaker was Jack  Thompson of the Labor Relations  Board.  The   Kinsmen   Rehabilitation  Foundation, sponsors of the derby, were represented by Joan*  Westerberg, the Provincial Campaigns Assistant. Chief Khot-la-  cha of the Capilano tribe was also  a guest at the luncheon. The chief -  has since agreed to act as a derby  judge and to appear at the festivities in full dress. The chief and  executive vice-president Lloyd  Manuel jointly proclaimed the  opening of the fishing derby publicity campaign.  The luncheon was prepared  and served by chefs Bonnie Du-  boise and Lee Hartley and includ-.  ed a smorgasbord of cold meats  and mixed salads. Local.RCMP  officer Bob Prest and Bank of  Montreal manager Bob Audet  were among local guests at the  Madeira Park luncheon.

Cucumbers and mayonnaise before bed?  by CAEOLYNNBICHLER  Every year millions of dollars  are spent on cosmetics. A woman  will go to any extent to look beautiful. Even in ancient tunes females gooped stuff on their faces  and bodies so that men would find  them attractive.  We can start with our toes and  work upward knowing that there  are products on the market designed to enhance every square  inch of our body.  Take a look in your medicine  chest or on your night stand.  What an array of creams, masks,  astringents,  lipsticks,  eye  sha  dows, etc., etc. If you are like me  all the beauty aids that I have collected spend most of their time on  the shelf, but I keep buying more.  We live in a world where the  emphasis is on youth and beauty,  and trying to accentuate the positive.  Sometimes I go on a rampage  and slather my face with this  cream or that mask. When I go  to bed with my green Mint Julep  Masque on my husband always  makes some snide comment like,  "Tonight I get to sleep with, the  Green Hornet". My mother al  ways said, "You have to suffer to  be beautiful". She didn't say anything about making others suffer  because they are forced to watch  me becoming beautiful.  Have you ever been to a make  up party where you get to try on  different colors and techniques  of make up? It really can be fun  fooling around trying to look  exotic. Of course you usually  spend a fortune, but money is  made to be spent dahling, and  what's more important than  beauty!  There are many products on the  market and all of them seem to be  prospering. Even women who act  as if they don't care, do. Every  woman would love to be admired  by men, or a particular man; and .  she doesn't mind having all the  ladies in town notice her too. A i  woman may act annoyed when a ���;  man whistles at her, but she is ���  more  upset  when he doesn't. }  Women thrive on attention, why v  else would we try to attract with >  all our cosmetics.  Natural organic cosmetics are  quite popular today. Egg whites  make a great mask, and you can  add honey also. Some women  smear mayonnaise on their faces  before retiring. Whatever turns  you on. Cucumber makes a good  astringent, just wipe a slice over  your clean face. I knew a girl who  made a suntan lotion out of vine-  Bar and oiL_slie got a great tan  and smelted good enough to eat.

Unfortunately she was very,  very dull.

'fy* +"���"*���** iiymnii ��w nun tt'^^^wv-^fvv'w'Vft 11 i  by ROB DYKSTRA  There's that saying, a bit of a  cliche, that says you can't see the  forest for the trees. It works the  other way too: You can't see the  trees for the forest, and I mean  this now more in the literal sense  than the figurative.  A few weeks ago Keats Island  resident Lance Alexander took me  on a tour of the Corkum farm, that  pastoral piece of property that always lures the eye when passing  by the north-east end of Keats on  the Sunshine Coast Queen. Besides revelling in the general illusion that I was back on some old  farm near Wolfville, Nova Scotia,  Lance also managed to inspire  some awe by pointing out some of  Keats' oldest and most impressive residents, the trees.  Our eyes followed the gnarled  boughs of several old maples, and  the bolt upright trunks of stately  old hemlocks and firs that somehow the loggers forgot. We also  watched an eagle perched royally  atop a tall scrawny pine, definitely an "eagle tree," we concluded.  Then later going home to Hopkins Landing by canoe, with a definite idea in my head that you  can't see the trees for Keats, I  focused upon the fact that a local  artist, Joan Thompson-Warn, had  a showing at Whitaker House.  Her theme was trees. So why all  this fascination with the trees?  When I put this question to the  artist herself, over a cup of coffee  at her Gower Point home,. she  found it somewhat difficult to verbalize her pre-occupation with  trees other than to say that we, as  people, seldom seem to notice ' 'a  tree" and that more often than  not a particular tree was noticed  only just prior to its final fate with  the bulldozer blade.  Like the one at Bonniebrook,  for instance. It's an old apple  tree, unpruned for years, gnarled  forlorn, but not without that special character that old gnarled  apple trees never fail to have.  That old apple tree became something special to Joan Thompson-  Warn and her sketches and water  colors prove it.  But one day Ran Vernon, owner  of Bonniebrook, told her the old  apple tree would have to go. It's  gone.  It's intuition more than anything. Intuition that draws her to  paint the trees just as it's intuition that compels the artist to  paint anything. Having spent  much of her life on Gambier Island, she has always been familiar in an environment of trees.  She did not really start painting  them, however, until about a year  ago on a family trip to Brackendale, near Squamish. It was there  she started her tree series and it  was there also that those paint-  , ings culminated into a show last  February at the Brackendale Gallery.  Joan Thompson-Warn is the  name she exhibits under. To residents of this area she is probably  better known as Joan Warn, wife  of real estate agent Jack Warn,  and ex-teacher in this district.  She taught most recently at Gibsons Elementary School and before that she spent eight years  teaching at Roberts Creek school.  Her art influence in this art  starved school district is still remembered by her students and  teachers. As she told me during  our conversation,   ''naturally,  I  taught art as much as possible."  She agreed with my own convictions that art is very much un-  deremphasized in schools, both  the .practise of it and the history.  There are children who love athletics, she says, there are children who love science, but there  is also a great need for children  to be able to express their imagination    and    emotions    through  means such as art.

These individuals usually have common relationships ��� husband-wife, father-son, girl-boy etc. Through  these dialogues, Dr. Smith shows  the reader how to deal with everyday problems in an assertive ���  manner.

Just after  quitting her job as a teacher  she attended UBC and it was  there that her teachers encouraged her to take up art professionally.  She has also spent a year in  Mexico at the art school at San  Miguel de Allende and even  though there seems to be no Mexican influence in her art, there is  that influence in the bright airy  atmosphere of her home.

Before long, highwaymen, footpads and other scoundrels were swinging ��� from the  gallows.  But Dick Turpin, the most  notorious' ��� often known as Big  Dick*��� was having a swinging  time treating the law's long arm  like one enormous funny bone.  No-one ��� least of all the Bow  Street Runners' chief, Sir Roger  Daley, his Captain, Desmond  Fancey, Sgt. Jock Strapp or local  Constable suspects that Highwayman Dick is really Reverend  Flasher, Rector of the village of  Upper Dencher. Or that the two  members of his gang, Harry and  Tom "Doc" Scholl are, in fact,  Harriet the Rectory's parlor maid  and the man who pumps the  church's organ.  Not even Matha Hoggett, the  doting Rectory house-keeper and  church organist, realises that the  money-raising valuables at the  Church jumble sales, are booty  from Dick's illegal moonlight  escapades.  The Turpin gang embarrass the  law in more ways than one.  Whenever Sir Roger and his wife  travel, their coach is held up and  they're stripped of everything ���  even clothes. The same befalls  Madame Desiree and her touring  Girls of Paradise girlie show.  But the foppish Captain fancey  and stammering Sgt. Strapp don't  give up so easily. Finally they deduct that all Turpin's crimes are  committed in the upper and Lower Dencher area.  They ask the Rector's help in  exposing Dick Turpin! And, posing as two hardened criminals on  the run from London, visit the  village inn and learn that Turpin  can be identified by a birthmark  ' in a very private place. However,  before he knows what's happening, Fancey is chased trousefless  from the inn by Madame Desiree,  who Dick has tricked into believing that Fancey is Turpin and that  she will be rewarded 100 sovereigns for revealing his identity.  Strapp's crime-busting, birthmark-seeking efforts are no more  fruitful. He's thrown bodily out  of the inn accused of being a  peeping torn.  Even after a spell in the village  stocks suspected of being Turpin  ; and one of his gang, Fancey and  Strapp persist in hunting the  highwayman.  And it looks like the gang's  game is up when Harriet is arrest-  ed after Lady Daley recognises a  bracelet she is wearing as- one .  stolen from her in the night be-  fore's hold-iip. However soon,  dressed as two tarted-up women,  Dick and Tom are overpowering  Fancey and freeing Harriet in  the police station. But now Turpin's   identity   is   out.   Escape  -seems impossible as Bow Street  Runners   surround  the   church  ; and Dick delivers maybe his last  ] lesson. But he's a few tricks left.  And soon Dick, Harriet and Tom  speed towards the Scottish border  and safety.  .

It was a curious mixture of colonial politicians, lawyers and businessmen  that came together to form the  initial provincial assemblies and  to the public it often seemed that  they were more interested in protecting their own interests-than in  developing a social system that  was compatible with the provinces newly discovered wealth.  There were few men who could  afford to stand up to this snobbish  ruling oligarchy of colonial officials. Those that did cross them  were usually denied the opportunities that had originally brought  them to B.C. The role of  "government critic'' therefore  went, largely by default, to the  owners of the local newspapers.  John Robson, editor of the New  Westminster based "British  Columbian" encouraged a sense  of reform in both politics and justice; that was often considered  much too idealistic for a colony so  far from the centres of civilization. Robson was the ephomy of  the "crusading editor" more often concerned with governmental  morality than with the practical  issues at hand. Later, as a member of the legislature and as B ,C .s  eighth premier he was forced to  deal with not only the philosophic  angles but also with the routine  of day to day government and  unfortunately many of the traits  he had so despised in previous  governments became all too common in his administration.  Robson was the type of man  who accomplished much more as  a critic than as a leader, yet his  government is still one of the few  bright spots in an otherwise  dreary period of provincial history  John Robson was the son of a  tough, hard working Scottish  farmer from Lanark, Upper Canada. He was the second child of 16  and as such was given a rapid  education, then sent out to work  not only to support himself but to  aid the rest of the family.  .  For a short time he worked on  newspapers in Sarnia and Montreal and gained the experience  that was later to provide him with  his career. In 1848 he left the  newspaper business and joined  his brother Robert in opening a  general store in Bayfield, Upper  Canada where he married and  settled down to lead a respectable  life. For ten years John Robson  was happy with this existence but  when the news of the 1858 gold  rush in B.C. reached eastern  Canada a more adverturous side  of his personality seems to. have  taken  over.   Robson   and  four  friends decided to take the risk  In April of 1859 the,"argonauts"  as they called themselves, left  New York and sailed by way of  the Panama crossing to San Francisco then on to Victoria where  they landed that June. Robson  soon sensibly concluded that he  was not cut out for the life of a  gold miner and decided that there  was more steady money to be  made from splitting shingles and  clearing lots than chasing after  the elusive "mother lode". An  accident late in 1860 left him unable to continue this pursuit and  while he was recovering a group  of friends offered him ihe position  of editor on a newspaper they  were planning to establish.  On February 13, 1861 the first  issue of the "British Columbian"  was released in New Westminster. The liberal editorial policy  advocated the promotion of settlement and the development of new  roads and communication. Robson considered the governing  clique to be too conservative, too  snobbish and too embedded in an  undemocratic system of colonial  government. His criticizms were  harsh and often poorly substantiated but the people of New West-  minster generally agreed with his  sentiments and he soon became a  popular figure in the new colonial  capital.

I  I  Jl  . Judge Matthew Baillie Begbie,  the popular frontier magistrate,  symbolized aU the aspects of the'  colonial administration that Robson so disliked. The editor accused Begbie of disregarding the  local populations' wishes and of  illegally speculating in mining  claims and the sale of crown land.  Begbie was enraged. He soon declared that the editor must show  cause for the statements and  when Robson refused to reveal  his sources he jailed him for contempt of court. After four days of  -prison Robson finally submitted  an apology and was released, but  the feud between himself and the  colonial government grew continually worse in the ensuing years.  . In 1866 the citizens of New  Westminster showed their approval of Robson by electing him as  both Mayor and as their representative to the first legislature  of the united colony of British Columbia. Robson was a well respected figure in the town when  disaster struck later that year and  his office and printing establishment were destroyed by fire. It  ,was almost certainly arson that,  started the. blaze and the local  residents again came to Robson's  CLASSES FOR  EXPECTANT PARENTS  BEGIN  Sechelt Elementary School ��� Monday, May 10  Health Unit^b^^  FOR REGISTRATION PHONE  Coast Garibaldi Health Unit  886^2228  J  rescue by raising enough money  for him to purchase the offices of  the defunct "North Pacific  Times" and carry on publication.  The "British Columbian" however was in a period of decline.  After the removal of the capital to  Victoria it had slowly fallen from  its former position to become just  another local weekly.  Robson continued to hold his  seat in the legislature through  the closing years of colonial rule  but in the election of 1870 he was  narrowly defeated and was absent  from the house until the first provincial election the next year. It  was unfortunate that Robson was  not present in the house during  the confederation debates but his  editorials show that he favored  acceptance as long as the terms  were right. As a member of the  first legislature Robson opposed  Premier McCreight for his refusal  to institute full responsible government and when McCreight  was finally defeated Robson was  faced with again being in opposition to his old competitor Amor de  Cosmos, editor of the "Daily  British Colonist".  Robson had given up his residence in New Westminster and  had moved his paper to Victoria  after his 1871 election to the legislature. However, the "British  Columbian" soon proved to be a  major inconvenience to the new  owners of the "Colonist" and  Robson was finally convinced to  sell them the paper and take over  the editorship of the combined  publication.  In 1875 Robson decided not to  seek re-election and after resigning his post at the "Colonist" he  accepted a position with the CPR  survey crew which he held until  1879. Robson was probably better  off out of provincial politics in the  hectic years that followed.  Finally in 1881 with the aid of  his brother David, he re-opened  the office of the "British Columbian" in New Westminster and in  the election of 1882 he returned to  the legislature and helped to organize the rise of William Smithe.  When Smithe formed his government the next year Robson was  offered the finance, agriculture  and provincial secretary portfolios. When Smithe died in 1887  Alexander E.B. Davie took over  as premier and Robson was once  again included in the cabinet. A  short two years later death again  interrupted the procedure and  this time it was Robson who stepped into the premier's job.  John Robson governed through  one of the most prosperous periods of B.C. history. He believed  in co-operation with Ottawa,  development of the railways and  slowly it became apparent that he  was becoming a patron of the  "big businesses" that he had so  eagerly attacked a few years  before.  During-the election campaign  of 1890 the main issues were redistribution and new mining  claims legislation. While campaigning in the Cariboo Robson  was actually kidnapped by a  group of irate miners and forced  to listen to their objections to the  bill. The meeting ended with Robson promising to review the legislation and winning their support.  He was never at a loss for words.  The last two years of Robson's  government were lively ones, he  continued to champion big business, was forced to admit that the  provincial finances had suffered  under his management and ironically was responsible for the jailing of the Kennedy brothers who  had taken over the "British  Columbian", for constant unfounded criticizms of the government. By the time Robson left  for conferences in London in 1892  he had already decided to leave  the legislature at the end of his  term and to seek appointment as  the new lieutenant-governor.  While in London Robson suddenly took ill after having his finger crushed in a cab door. Before  the doctors could treat the serious  blood poisoning which the accident had caused the disease set in  and resulted in Robson's death a  few days later.  John Robson was a very complex character, during his time as  an editor and legislator his views  altered, almost from one side cf  the political spectrum to the  other, yet the vestiges of his  youthful idealism never really  disappeared. When John Robson  tried to put his ideals to the test  they too often refused to conform  to the realities of the situation,  yet Robson's government was  perhaps more conscious of public  opinion than any other early B.C.  administration and through the  three years he held the position of  Premier he retained the approval  of the people of B.C.

Take it easy, and  rest if you're tired.  TAURUS - April 21 to May 20  Some real surprises are due for  Taurus at this time. If you're  careful, you may be able to realize  the 'dream of your life-time.' The  big thing to avoid, is being  careless in business.  GEMINI - May 21 to June 20  Romantic intrigue may be most  tempting now. It would be VERY  wise to watch your step in all  social matters. If you stick to  business, and forget silly notions,  you 'should do well.  CANCER - June 21 to July 21  A little complication is correspondence could cause unneces  sary delays in business matters  this coming week. Don't try to  rush things along; they'll all work  out in a little while.  LEO - July 22 to August 21  The aspects for Leo are now very  much as they are for Sagittarius-.  You should read the horoscope for  Sagittarius and profit by it. Watch  what you do with money, make  sure you spend it in the right  places.  VIRGO - August 22 to Sept. 21  Deep intuition and very clear  thinking are working overtime for  persons born in the sign of Virgo..  There may be a tendency to 'fly  off the handle' it would be wise to  remain silent.  LIBRA - Sept. 22 to October 22  Look ahead in the next few weeks  to some truly happy times. If the  last couple of weeks has left you a  little run-down, you would be  wise to take your doctor's advice.  SCORPIO - Oct. 23 to Nov. 21  If you don't try to "overdo"  things this next week you should  find yourself in a most favourable  position. The important thing to  remember, is. "take time to think  things out."  SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 Dec 20  Some very clear thinking may get  you out of a very "tight squeeze"  either in business or domestic  matters some time next week.  Use your head: above all, be  honest with yourself.  CAPRICORN Dec. 21 - Jan. 19  If astrology has its way, you  should be right in the middle of  something BIG in business! Be  reasonable and courteous with  others, but don't stand back or  allow yourself to be pushed  around.  AQUARIUS - Jan. 20 to Feb. 18  It wouldn't be at all surprising to  see you preparing for a "move"  of some sort. This might be a  move from one place to another,  or it might merely be a "move" in  change of thought.  PISCES - Feb. 19 to Mar. 20  You may be moving your place of  residence sometime next June or  July, Now is an excellent time to  lay plans for this, as it will cause  far less confusion when the time  actually comes.

SUNDAY, MAY 2  Voice of the Pioneer 8:40 a.m.  Conclusion   of   the   Jackrabbit  \Sunshine Sketches]  At a recent school board meeting in Halfmoon Bay some of the  parents present expressed a none  too subtle desire to see a kindergarten for that district. As it is  now, kindergarten students from  the Halfmoon Bay area must go to  school in Pender or Sechelt.  School District Superintendent  John Denley told parents that he  too wouldn't mind seeing a kindergarten in that area but in order  for the board to get funding from  the province there would have to  be more kids to make up the pre-  elementaryschool class.  The unabashed John continued  by saying that the establishment  of a kindergarten in Halfmoon  Bay would be quite a simple matter: parents are just going to have  to get busy and come up with  some more babies.  Some indignant residents and  newspaper columnists have expressed a deisre to have better  communications between the  public and the RCMP. The indignation is somewhat justified because at times it is difficult to establish contact with the local boys  in brown.  However, as Shirley "Sam"  Macey has pointed out, calling  Zenith 50000 in Vancouver will  sometimes put you in touch with  the police much faster than calling the local number.  Sam, who is desk-jockey at the  Gibsons detachment, told of, a  lady   in   Roberts   Creek   who  phoned the RCMP one weekend  through the Zenith number. The  boys happened to be on patrol in  Roberts Creek and they were at  the lady's house within minutes.  The only quirk that should be^  worked out now at both Gibsons  and Sechelt detachments is that  when there are no police in the office, which is frequent on weekends, the phone should automatically switch over to the Zenith  number. A person in an emergency should not spend that frustrated minute or two listening to  unanswered rings, nor should  that person be told after a few  rings by a recorded voice to phone  the Zenith number in Vancouver.  Dialing the extra number combined with the fact that half the  time B.C. Tel operators seem to  be knitting or sleeping on the job,  wastes a lot of time.  In an ordinary situation, one  can always wait and twiddle  thumbs, but in an emergency,  police access must be instant.  We read in the ladies golf tournament report that blustery weather characterized last week's  'Tombstone Tournament. "With  a name like that one should expect nothing else but that kind of  weather. Surmise that some of  the ladies were probably frozen to  the bone...  Some of you have expressed  concern recently overthe fact that  a local fishboat, the MV Titanium  was overdue.

According  to local fisherman Charlie Strom,  Titanium's owner Bob Corlett and  crew returned safe to Gibsons  harbour last week. Apparently *  the boat experienced some radio  difficulties and could not call in  at the designated time.  And you thought you'd heard  the last of Patty Hearst for a  while. Not so. Some California  entrepreneur is marketing a book  called The Trial of Patty Hearst.  Next on the list is T-shirts, kites,  and maybe even a comic strip;  and no doubt a film.  You read recently that Sechelt  Fire Department has bought a  new fire truck with a $75,000  price tag. Also $63,000 is going  towards a new fire truck for  / Roberts Creek. Some of the old  timers around here remember  when Roberts Creek purchased  their first fire truck for the  total price of $1. Even at that bargain basement price, the Creek  fore department got took, according to some.  It's been noticed by one of the  more perceptive people in this  newspaper office that hitchhiking is no longer a mode of  cheap transportation practised  only by the young. He's spotted  several elderly people standing  on the side of the highways and  byways of the Sunshine Coast  with their thumbs in the air.  Hitch-hiking pensioners may become a common phenomenon in  this area. Thanks to ICBC, no  doubt.
