The group explained that though they felt Davis' announcement;  of an $8.00 per vehicle and $2.00 per passenger resident card was not'/  entirely acceptable they had agreed to forego the demonstration and'  instead pursue a more reasonable course of action to make their position known. The meeting was generally in agreement with the committee's position though there were a few dissenters who felt that the protest should have gone ahead as Davis didn't meet the original demands  ofthe group.  The Concerned Citizens  further announced .that they  are not willing to entirely accept  the governments, stand and  stated that they hoped to become  a permanent standing committee.  The committee ' presented 12  recommendations for further  action to the meeting and during  the ensuing question and answer  period two more recommendations were accepted'from the  audience.  The   committee    wound    up  the meeting by asking for continued local  support and by  inviting     interested    -residents  to join the committee in order  to replace a number of the  original 'committee of 11' who  were no longer willing to pursue  the committees position on a  permenant basis.  The committee will be meeting  again this week to draft up  proposals for hither action.  The committee has now established a postal address at Box  1235, Gibsons, and would appreciate correspondence from  all residents who are interested  in carrying on the fight-  The committee's position  as stated at last Thursday's  . meeting is reprinted below.  Government's discuss cards  Gibsons Provincial Gold Medal Track and Field winners  pose for a group shot after their magnificent showing at  Richmond last week. The Sechelt contingent took away  the third place in province title.  A meeting of local government  representitives y. / was - called  last Wednesday .to discuss  the issuing of the new B.C.  Ferries resident cards.    .     '  .  The group agreed to accept a  cost sharing offer by the provincial government and announced  that the; saving due to this cooperation would probably' mean  that the cards would now be;  By-law 96 gets third reading  Approximately 45 people  gathered in the Egmont Community hall to hear the Sunshine Coast Regional Board  pass third reading of by-law  % and its proposed ammend-  ments.  The majority of opposition  to the new by-law has come  from the Pender Harbour - Egmont area. Many residents expressed their concern; over. the  ruling, which under the Health-  and Sewage regulations, allows  for only two dwellings to be  permitted on a' parcel of land.  An ammendment to the bylaw permits the replacement  of a dwelling accidentally destroyed on a parcel of land, if  the two dwellings were legally  consructed before the adoption  of by-law 96.  Brian Stelk, alternate director  for doctoral ��� area B, informed  the board of his resignation  from this position. He wul be  returning to Edmonton and the  University of Alberta. The board  accepted his decision with regret  and many thanks for his valuable contributions.  60% limit opposed  A public hearing called on  Thursday June, 10 at the Sechelt  Senior Citizens, hall brought  forth considerable opposition  to thefc villages proposed By-law  number 162. The new zoning  amendment by-law would restrict  the use of C-l lots to a total of  60,% of the available site.  Village sewer consultant  NornTWatson felt that the  i 60^" limit was unnecessary  while septic tanks are required  and.[unwise when not required  as maximum density should  be "encouraged in the C-l zones.  Mrr; Watson also felt that the  stipulation of only one building  per Jot could prove economically  unfeasible for some lots.  OK Tire Store owner Hayden  Killam objected to the 60%  coverage and the single building  concept because he felt that  if a greater economic advantage  could be gained by the builder  this would also reflect back on  .the village tax revenue. Because  of his previous stormy relationship with the council Killam  stated that he would be unwilling  to enter into the land use contract  in order to avoid the regulations.  Other residents pointed out  that the village should be developed along the lines of creating a dense core with little or  no parking. Parking would be  on the fringe and the commercial  traffic would have to park and  walk through the main ' commercial centre. Another opinion  was that if the village were  willing to allow building of  structures higher than the  present 33 foot limit it would  be easier for developers to  accept the 60% surface limitation.  The by-law will now return  to committee for father consideration.  \ - �� ��� *  The board   also agreed, to a  motion  put  forward  by   Peter  Hoemburg to assist the Coast-  Garibali  Board of Health  Unit  by providing regional board staff  to conduct  the final  building  inspection.' ������.-/"  The board of health has recently suffered cutbacks in staff  and is having difficulties handling  the number 7 of inspections  required. 7  The regional board plumbing  inspector will conduct final  inspection on single family  dwellings and duplexes.  ' This situation will be subject  to review by the regional board.  After.* reading of the referendum recently held in Area  F to purchase Soames Hill  for a park, the board approved  final adoption of by-law number  117 which will make the necessary funds available.  Voters approved the referendum with a 78% yes vote.  , Gibsons to elect queen  Gibsons resident Vema Rivard  has made arrangements for the  Miss Gibsons contest to go  ahead despite the fact that  Sea Cavalcade has been abandoned due to lack of interest.  Retiring ; Queen Tracy Mac-  Dohald will give up her crown at  a- ceremony on Saturday, July  31. Verna Hopes that six girls  will be entered in the contest  as representatives of the local  service clubs. The Legion, the  Lions and the Firemen have  already agreed to enter girls  for the Miss Gibsons title.  The judges have already been  selected but will not be announced until after the six contestants  have been chosen.  The title on the Queens trophy  will be' changed from Miss  Sea Cavalcade to Miss Gibsons  since it is ,not expected that  the Sea Cavalcade will be held  this year. The wmner of the  Miss Gibsons title will be eligible to enter the PNE Pagent  as our local representative.  Should one year be missed  the village could lose its right to  enter for up  to fifteen  years.  Other events planned for the  July 31 weekend include the  Kinsmen Beer Garden and  possibly a wharf dance for teens.  The Gibsons Village Queen  Pagent fund has requested  some support from, the village  council, but private donations  and financial assistance are  still desperately heeded.  available for approximately  one dollar instead of the initial  proposal of approximately three  dollars. Five, cameras which  work on a Polaroid system  have been . leased to produce  the sealed ID cards. The cards  will be available within minutes  of having the picture taken.  It is expected that the cameras  will be stationed at Sechelt,  Gibsons and Powell River with  two other cameras floating between the smaller communities.  The, cards will be available  ' within the1, next few weeks and  will be valid until December,  1977. Thereafter, the cards  will be color coded and renewable each calender year.  THE SUNSHINE COAST  CONCERNED CITZENS  The Sunshine Coast Concerned Citizens, though  recognizing the fact that the announcement of resident  card reductions by the Minister of Transport on June 10 is  a vast improvement over the government's initial proposals, still quite strongly feel that other improvements  must be incorporated into the government's current position.  The committee has considered the entire ferry structure and the following recommendations represent their  opinion of areas in which they still wish to see improvement:  1) Further reduction ofiocal resident rates  2) The immediate establishment of a system of resident  commuter lanes to allow residents preferential boarding.  3) Abolishment ofthe discriminatory 6'5" height limit.  4) Extension of the special rate group for commercial  vehicles to those under the present 12,000 GVW limit.  5) Increased citizen input into the cafeteria system.  6) Increased awareness of the hardships caused in 'special  cases'and development of a more flexible system to deal  with these problems.  7) Increased local input into the current revision of schedules, especially to allow for late night runs etc.  8) Increased government subsidies to help further lower  resident fares.  9) Reductions in the number needed to aquire the group  rate status to 10 and the development of a $1.00 per foot  passenger group rate fare for local resident groups.  10) To study and later recommend on the feasibility of  establishing a per foot basis of charging for vehicles usage  11) Return of theOAP "Free use'' to seven days per week.  12) To study available parking and mass transit from terminals to city centre and attempt to put forward a,better  solution.  13) A complete financial statement that will allow the  group to properly see the financial position of the Howe  Sound run especially in respect to the rest of the B.C. Ferities fleet.   >. ��� _ _���_,,.��.    ��� ����� i*       ^   *���**''*<, ,  14) To work towards the establishment of a system of free  ferries which will allow this area to fully realize its growth  potential as a recreational and residential1 community  within easy reach ofthe Chy of Vancouver. *  Council cancels referendum  Sechelt Village Council agreed  that the local sewer project should  go ahead' as proposed without  benefit'of a referendum at their  regular meeting last Wednesday  night.  The council also announced  that they will be holding a public  meeting within the next few  weeks to explain their reasons for  foregoing the referendum and to  allow any local residents who object to the proposal or the lack of  a referendum to air their grievances.  The council changed their intentions at last Wednesday  night's meeting after the provin  cial government informed them  that under current legislation it  was no longer necessary to seek  die assent ofthe registered voters  before proceeding with this type  of project. The council members  felt that the project must go  ahead without delay and that it  would be an unnecessary waste  of both time and money to seek  approval for a project which has  so far been favorably received by  local residents.  SCRD Chairman John McNevin  later stated that he was not entirely happy with the council's  decision and added that he would  have no part of any proposal to do  right  the residents out of their  to a referendum.  The cost of the Sechelt sewer  project has been estimated at  approximately $1.6 tnfflkm.  Village sewer consultant Norm  Watson,also informed council at  last week's meeting that Union  Steamships. owner Stan James  has agreed to supply a site for the  sewage treatment plant on land  owned by his company on the Hydro right-of-way. Watson described the site as "near perfect"  and added that this change would  further reduce public concern  over the matter.  inside  A  I���Pg. 2-Trying to get off the welfare go round.

No referendum  Last week, Sechelt Village Council  voted 4 -1 in favor of doing away with the  proposed referendum for the $1.6 million  Sechelt sewer project.  Though it must be admitted that  council was acting with the best of intentions, we find it hard to believe that the  residents of Sechelt will appreciate this  unilateral action on the part of their council. The provincial government may have  decided, in their infinite wisdom, that the  Sechelt Villagers do not deserve a fair  voice in the appropriation of such a large  sum, but surely the local property owners  who will have to foot the extra mill or so  plus hook-up charges will have a different  view.  The installation of a proper sewer  system represents a major step in the  development of any small community. If  the residents are to be bypassed on this  type of decision at what point will they be  consulted in the future?  Sechelt council is attempting to ram  through an important piece of municipal  business without public consent by claiming that time does not allow them to seek  public approval. They could soon discover  that the time wasted in arguing the point  of democratic rights will force them still  further behind schedule. SCRD Chairman  John McNevin has already stated that he  will have no part of any decision to do  away with the referendum and without  regional support the council is in for a  hard fight.  Sechelt Council has promised to hold  a public meeting to explain their decision  in the near future. We would suggest  that instead of attempting to force this  issue they change the purpose of the  meeting to an announcement of referendum.  No council has the right to take on  this kind of responsibility without a clear  and democratic mandate from their  electorate.  Moratorium  The Provincial Government's tight  fisted policies have once again hit home.  This time in the form of a disasterous  staff shortage at the Coast Garibaldi  Union Board of Health Unit.  The problem became so severe last  week that an emergency session of the  Union Board of Health executive was forced to announce a moratorium on the  regular health inspections required for  sub-divisions and the SCRD has since  agreed to allow their plumbing inspectors  to take over the health departments inspection during the building of single  family and duplex dwellings.  The provincial government has once  again proved that they are incapable of  controlling their own departments. During the last few weeks almost continuous ���  representation to the Minister of Health  by representatives of our local governments, and the civil servants concerned  has made the Minister well aware of our '  predicament, but unfortunately has yet  to bring about any solutions to the  delemma.  Fighting Victoria is becoming an all  too popular pastime on this coast. For  once we would like to see the government act out of concern instead of fear  and pressure.  Why?  It would appear that night-time is  definitely not the right time for parking at  Horseshoe Bay.  A local resident who commutes daily  to a job in the big city told last week's  Sunshine Coast Concerned Citizens  Meeting that because parking is by the  calendar day he is forced to pay for two  days parking each day. He explained that  when he arrives at Horseshoe Bay from  his job he must enter the lot and purchase  tickets for both that day and the new day  that starts at midnight. When he returns  from work the next night, since he has  left the lot all day, his ticket is no longer  valid and he is once again forced to pay  for that day.  Also in the news was an explanation  by Jack Davis as to why the bus companies were allowed to charge senior citizens  $3.50 for the Vancouver - Victoria bus-  ferry trip.  According to Davis it works like this.  Regular fare is $6.25 of which $4.00 is  passenger fare and $2.25 goes towards  paying for the bus. A fare of $3.50 applies  to senior citizens therefore as they must  pay the $2.25 for the bus and put something towards the cost of paying the bus  rate for the ferry. Even though they are  allowed to board free Monday to Thursday they are not allowed to deduct the  $4 from their fare which the bus company  would otherwise have to pay on their  behalf.

Commentary  Trying to get off the welfare-go-round  According to our provincial  government the Sunshine Coast  is   a    'welfare   disaster   area.'  The Honourable (?) Bill Van-  derzalm seems to feel that there  are no jobs available for those  who wish to get off the welfare-  go-round. Even certain members  of our local governments haye  been known to espouse the view  that our most important in-  industries are the collection of  welfare and UIC benefits.'  Though our august leaders  are right in not under rating  the importance of these federal  and provincial presents, this  last week I've begun to wonder  whether or not the job market  is really as bad as some people  would like to make it out to be.  There is no doubt that in certain  fields employment is virtually  non-existent but unfortunately  the newspaper field does not  come into this catagory.  The problems started a few  weeks ago when, due to the retirement of our editor and my own  promotion, a position as a reporter on the Coast News was  suddenly available. After considerable effort over a two week  period no local resident with  the basic language skills necessary for the job could be found.  We went further afield and finally  found a University of Victoria  English graduate from Naniamo  who was interested in the job.  An ad in the Vancouver Province  that week netted only about  twenty replies, only three of  which were even vaguely interested in the job. One of those  was definitely not suitable for  the job, one couldn't live on  less   than   $1200   per   month  and the other one we hired.  The problem was not in finding  people who were unemployed.  The problem was in finding  someone who was unemployed  and was willing to give up that  status   for   anything   less   than  ��� $20,000  a  year and  a  twenty  i: hour work week.  i.    Our    new    reporter    started ,  ���> a few weeks back and though >  he was almost totally untrained  for the position, slowly as he  got used to the job he began  to poduce at a reasonable level.  Last week, due to the permenant  newspaper staff shortage in this  area, our new reporter, whom  we had invested two or three  weeks worth of salary into  training, was picked off by our be-  , loved competion.  Again we begin going through  the routine of . searching for  someone to" fill the reporters  chair. Since then we have interviewed   eight   applicants.   Four  .would rather stay on UIC than  work a Wednesday thru Sunday  week, two high school students  want a holiday before starting  work, and another was unsure  of both his ability to handle  the job and his ability to live on a  reporters salary. One girl started  last Thursday and after two  hours decided that she and the  job weren't made for each other.  Finally after a week of searching we have hired a new reporter  and hopefully when our next  edition hits the streets, she will  still be with us.  Though a reporter's paycheck  is traditionally not amongst  the highest,wages going, I like  to think the job at least offers  a challenging set of principles  and a chance to develop F the  creative urge; Though journalism is not as artistically respected as poetry or the great"  Canadian novel, as a profession  it allows not only creativity  but also the'chance to work at  a personal level on issues that  are important to your community.  What I am trying to get across  is really quite simple, there  are many jobs that have a lot  less to offer than a chance to  write for a community newspaper.  Why then is it so difficult  to find staff that are willing to  accept the challenge?  I've come to the conclusion  that this country has decided  that. work is an evil necessity.  Too many people are willing  to sit back and bitch instead of  taking on a challenge that just  may make their lives a little more  interesting and therefore make  themselves a more complete  person. UIC and welfare are  becoming habits which are just  too hard to break. Why become  involved when you can sit back  and wait for the Post Office  to deliver your cheque from  Ottawa?  I'm not worried about the  financial cost of this kind of  attitude. In the future it will  be beneficial to have a certain  percentage of the population  who are capable of using their  liesure time in a creative" mariner  as most likely there just won't  be enough jobs to go around.  What does concern me is the  apathy that is becoming all  too apparent in our society. Work  is by far man's most important  social activity, it is a forum  for both social and personal  achievment. There is no reason  why that work has to result in a  loss of indivuality. There is work  available for anyone who is pre- .  pared to show interest and enthus  iasim for the position.  It is time we re-evaluated our  demands and looked to see  what we can. add to our jobs  instead of what we can take  away. ��� ��� '���  Letters to the Editor  SENIORS  Editor: In your edition of June 8  last, Jamie Ives reported a conversation with a Mr. Moyen who  expressed his disapproval of  special ferry rates for senior  citizens. In only one aspect of Mr.  Moyen's comments can I agree:  not all senior citizens are poor!  However, I do wish to point out  that compared to the other  western provinces, senior citizens  receive few special considerations  here in our beautiful B.C. The  Alberta and Saskatchewan governments are of the opinion that  senior citizens have earned the  benefits accorded to them in  those two provinces. Mr. Moyen  should realize that B.C. is far  behind in this respect.  As a senior citizen going on 70,  I still have a mortgage to contend  with, I have a wife to support,  I must pay the same for all the  things I need just as everyone  else; including dental and medicare, which the seniors in the  aforementioned provinces do not  have to contribute to. Yet we  must live on a mere $380.00  a month! On this income we  don't get any special income tax  considerations either.  Of course, there are seniors  who have good pensions and  other investment income, but  they are the minority. Better than  95% of us haye only the Old Age  Security and possibly the Canada  Pension cheque coming in every  month. So please Mr. Moyen  don't put us all in the same boat.  It would be wise to remember  that we are the ones who put  this country together, not the  ones who are trying to tear ���*  i  ���i  apart. We built the roads, the  schools; we brought Canada  through the great depression and  the second world war. Don't  you think, Mr. Moyen, that we  ' have a little extra coming to us  now?  L.B.FREDERICK,  Sechelt  MOREDOGS  t  Dear Sir;  Having just read the letter in  . your paper of June 15th from Jim  and Kay. Holt, I wish to express  my own bitter disgust of the  owners of large dogs who allow  them to roam free, killing deer,  snapping at people who would  like to enjoy a walk, biting  children,ruining gardens and  'now this last disgrace of killing  a dear little dog who should  have been perfectly safe in his  own back yard.  Right in front of our own home  here in Roberts Creek some time  ago, a small black dog was walking along minding his own business  when a big  St.  Bernard  pounced on him and got the little  ��� dog on his back between his legs.  I am positive that little dog would  have been killed had I not been  able to throw a stone straight  enough to make the big fellow  look up  which  gave  the  little  one time to scramble out from  under   and   scoot   away.   This -  sort of thing  is shameful  and  a disgrace to the owners.  We desperately need an  S.P.C.A. around here to get the  wandering dogs and put them  peacefully to sleep if a good  home cannot be found fpr them.  As for dogs who have owners  who let them wander, pick them  up and charge the owner a large  fine.to get him back, with the  mess of dogs we have around the  SunshineCoast and with a conscientious pound keeper the  thing would pay for itself in  no time. ,  How do we set about getting  one established.  ALICE E.SMITH m'  Gibsons '   X  SUMMER -76  This is an advance announcement of Summer-76. It is a  summer activity programme of  arts, crafts, sports'and outings  for schoolchildren who live'on  the north peninsula. Summer-76  was originally'intended for kids,  who, for one or more reasons  experience difficulty with the  standard      school      curriculm.  These young people will, in  fact, have priority in this programme. During the last couple  of weeks, though, we've expanded our idea in order to  provide a positive focus of  summer activity for everyone,  including high schoolers.  We still need many more  parents and other adults to  volunteer time and talents.  And we're a long way from  having our finances under  control. Who is we? Evans  Hermon (883-2745), Jessie  Rietze (883-2677), Bruce Durkin  (883-9284) and Tom Perry (883-  9948).  If your children want to participate in Summer-76, we will  ask you (or your children) to  phone in a day ahead for reservations. Please watch for further,  information in your newspapers  and community bulletin boards.

If the wearing of seat belts  does become mandatory the  comfort and style of a belt should. :  be an important consideration  of car buyers when they: make  their selection.. 7 ;  Have you ever had those days -  when you are sitting in a restaurant or on a bus and it starts  getting   crowded,   but   nobody  sits by you? It makes you wonder  if you forgot to wash your face  that morning or if your polka  dot tie really does clash with your  turtle-neck sweater.   Then there ,  are   times  like   Monday   when ,  strangers  peirce your invisible '  walls."  Perhaps it was my cultivated  image of wordliness, a Habitat,  pin and  an  Air Canada flight '  bag, which caused Frank Currie, '  a    New    Westminster    dentist ' *  to call out to me as I stepped  onto the aft deck ofthe Langdale  Queen.   Lokking over the grey-; ;.  green water we traded stories.'  It was then Frank in a philosophical moment told me about  Guy Wootton, a young middle-  aged skipper of the same boat  who    had    committed    suicide  three years before. 'Why should  he do a thing like that?' Frank  said, 'everybody liked him.  I broke the silence and" began  to talk of other things. When he  learned I studied English in  school he asked me to test him  and recite a few lines of a poem..; '  Appropriately I repeated *water  water everywhere and not a  drop to drink.'  'Yes,' he said,  'that is the  poem about the man who shot  the   albatross   and   then    the  crew hung it around his neck.'  When I left he shook my hand  .  warmly.   'Ace,'   he   said,    'remember to brush your teeth everv  day and fight plaque. You do  that and you'll have your.teeth    ���  forever. As far as I'm concerned  that is the most important thing    -  intheworld.' . /'        -  At   Horseshoe   Bay   awaiting  the   Nanaimo   ferry   a. rather  short late  middle-aged  woman  whose  narrow  white face was  dominated by several layers of  bright pink  lipstick,  suggested  I carry her  suitcase.  I agreed  to do this rather direct request  and picked up her bag. I asked    ;  myself, 'Do I look like a bell-.7 7  hop?' At he top of the stairs  she tried to slip a quarter into  my hand. I felt insulted. A thank  you would have been so much  better.   7  Report from the legislature  In education, Social Credit  Coalition government's^ "accomplishments" so far have been to  cut back on grants to school districts which will reflected in higher local taxes, and to increase the  deductibility on school insurance  to $1 million which will also be  reflected in local taxes.  The social programs have been  particularly effected by the Social  Credit government's record of accomplishment; Community Resource Boards have been disbanded jor left to fend for themselves, employable welfare recipients have been told where they  can live, and how long their hair  must be.  In women's, rights matters,  Social Credit has discontinued the  office of the Status of Women,  withdrawn funds from women's  transition houses, and eliminated  the program to study sexism in  the schools.  Of course, the Social Credit Coalition government never cared  much for human resources, education or health in the first place.  During the election campaign  they stressed that they were most  concerned about the province's  finances. So what have they done  in the first five months of their  administration? They have deliberately inflated the deficit position of the province for the fiscal  year 1975-76 by passing .millions1  of dollars of so-called special warrants which they can't or won't  explain.  They have plunged the_ province into debt unnecessarily by  passing a bill to borrow" $400 million which the taxpayer will haye  to pay the interest on. They gave  $181 million to ICBC which ICBC  didn't need, and promptly loaned  back to the government at 10 percent interest.  And now they have doubled  and raised ferry fares by 100 arid  150 percent, having previously  cut back on coastal shipping by  the sale ofthe Prince George, and  threatened the sale of other  necessary vessels.  It is indeed quite a record! The  question now is; how much more  can the people of British Columbia stand?  i Sunshine Coast News, June 22,1976  Roberts Creek Elementary has been holding some lessons  -with Sechelt carver Jamie Dixon at the head of the class.  Gibsons Council briefs  As the picture shows, some of the students are regular  chips of f the old block.  ' Council learned at Tuesday  nights meeting that Sunshine  Developments had met their  presale requirements of 75%  They requested the council  to send a ' letter of approval  to the highways department  asking for the construction of  access roads.  Alderman Metzler moved that  in the light of previous incidents  the council should receive from  the developers notarized sheets  of intent to buy from each prospective buyer, before agreeing to  the developers request. The  motion was approved. '  Village Superintendent of  Works, Fred Holland, was asked  by council to repair the old  existing floats at Armour's" beach  for the swimming lessons starting  July 1. The new styrafoam floats  currently under construction will  not be ready for the start of this-  ��� year's swimming season.  Alderman Metzler reported the  Marina project was having  problems-with water lots proposed to be included in the new  development.   '  Correspondence from MP Jack  Pearsall reported the program  looked good for federal funding.  The village will be working in  cooperation with two federal  government departments and  'the provincial Department of  Enviroment. Administration  procedures are slowing things  down.  Henry Road will be the site of  the Gibsons dog pound. The  building will be 28 x 20 feet  in size and will have five kennels. .  About 45-50 municipal representatives from provinces  and the territories will examine  the extensive range of federal,  provincial and municipal civil  emergency preparedness planning and operational activities associated with major emergencies  and disasters.  Alderman Metcalfe of Gibsons  will be attending a four day  conference June 21-24, for  Mayors and Municipal Officials at  the Federal Study Centre,  Arnprior, Ontario, under the  auspices of Emergency Planning  Canada. ,  The recent destruction done by  vandals to; the Pioneer Park  caused Alderman Metzler to  suggest establishing a curfew  for the park area. Village Clerk,  Jack Copland is to seek legal  advice on the matter.  A letter from Jack Davis on  June 2, sparked a great deal of  heated remarks from some  council members at theTuesday  night meeting.  Alderman  Metzler said this  man is a 'mess of contradictions.. .  I hope the Concerned Citizens  don't give up.'  The council members stated  they had 'lost all confidence in  Jack Davis as Minister of Transport.' and in the future they  would direct their transportation  questions to the premier.  Alderman Laing. pointed out  the unfairness to drivers of  recreational vehicles who use  their vehicles for basic transportation , yet must pay triple the fare.

Council submits  recommendations  Sechelt Village Council has  agreed to submit a recommendation to the Union of British Columbia Municipalities at next  month's convention in Vancouver. The recommendation  will ask the convention to support  a policy of removing school taxes  from the property tax roles  and instead be financed entirely  by the provincial treasury.  The alderman agreed with Village  Clerk Tom Wood's statement  that the method of payment  of school taxes to the local school  boards is becoming a costly  burden for the local governments.  A second recommendation  suggesting that all building  permit applications be accompanied by a 'performance bond'  was defeated by the council.  It was generally felt that though  there are certain cases where a  bond might be preferable, that  generally it was necessary to  presume innocence until otherwise shown. Village Clerk  Tom Wood ched the recent  troubles with Mr. Killam as  one instance where this kind of  guarantee would have saved the  village a considerable amount  in legal fees.  This is Your Life  Horoscope for the next week  By TRENT VARRO  ARIES -March 21  to April 20  A splendid time for a holiday of  some sort. This doesn't necessarily mean that you must travel;  but if you can merely relax your  mind, you'll find the rest it gives  you, most soothing.  TAURUS - April 21 to May 20  Indecision may cause you to lose  a lot that you have gained in the  past. This is no time to "dillydally" over  small,  unimportant  matters.   Think,   and   act   in   a  positive manner.  GEMINI - May 21  to June 20  Don't-"try too hard" or you are  liable to mix things all up. If luck  conies your way, let it take its  own course during this period.  Don't try "pushing" but accept  things graciously.  CANCER - June 21 to July 21  A matter concerning your future.  career in business is apt to come  up soon.  It couldn't come at a  better   time!    Decide   carefully  which path to follow. The stars  will help you immensely.  LEO - July 22 to August 21  A great deal of knowledge and  wisdom, is creeping into the sign  of Leo at this time. Be understanding and patient, and you  will achieve many-benefits in the  not too distant future.  VIRGO - August 22 to Sept. 21  You may "find" something* this  week that you had lost many  years ago. This concerns many  aspects of your life,, either in a  business matter. However, it is  astrologically very good.  LIBRA - Sept. 22 to October 22  You've probably got more going  for you than you realize at this  time. Be sensible, and calm, and  you should reap many benefits.  Getting "all up-in-the air" won't  help you one bit.  SCORPIO - Oct 23 to Nov. 21  Matters   dealing   with   "communications" of some sort." may be  puzzling   you   at   present,   but  there  is  nothing  to  get   upset  over.   Everything   should   clear  itself very quickly, and life can  be most pleasant.  "  SAGITTARIUS Nov 22  Dec 20  For the  next week,  the  Sagittarius  horoscope  will   resemble  the Scorpio one. Read the message for Scorpio, and apply it to  yourself. You can gain much, by  understanding others..  CAPRICORN - Dec 21 - Jan 19  Capricorn   individuals   will   probably be so "busy" taking .care  of details, that they won't find  time for much relaxation. If you  can find an hour or so during the  day to relax, so much the better.  AQUARIUS - Jan.20 -  Feb.  18  A good time to "tie-up all loose  ends and "bits and pieces" of  endeavours started in the past.  Don't get involved in new ventures until you finish the old ones.  PISCES - Feb.  19 -  March 20  Many things are starting to work  out well for you "in the zodiac.  They won't all happen together,  but   undoubtedly   a   subtle  "change" will creep into affairs,  that looked hopeless in the past.  Provincial Court  News   x  Trevor Hugh Hedden, 23,  was fined $500. when he pleaded  guilty in provincial court last  Wednesday, to hit and run  driving on May 29. Judge C.  I. Walker described the crime as  a 'dirty offence'.  A fine of $400. was given to'  Louis Joseph Sigouin for impaired  driving in Burnahy, B.C. Two  breathalizer readings showed  Sigouin's blood alcohol count  exceeded .08.  Gordon Smith, 57, also pleaded  guilty to impaired driving.  Smith had a blood alcohol reading  of .30, although he told the judge  he had only had. six drinks  of rye on that day. Smith, because  he has only a limited means  of income, was told to pay a  $300.     fine.     Judge    Walker,  however, recommended that  because of Smith's inability  to pay a larger fine he received  a three month driver's license  suspension. \  ���An overweight vehicle resulted '  in a $25.00 fine for Michael  Bunbery. In his trip from Davis  Bay to Roberts Creek he knocked  down one drooping cable wire.  Banbury had a general permit  for an overweight vehicle but  was unaware of the need for  an additional permit for height.  Carl Peter Defouw, 18, was  given a $250 fme when he pleaded guilty to driving a motorcycle  without insurance on May 20.  He was also fined $25 for being  a minor on  licensed premises  on May 8 near the village of  Gibsons. ,  (Copyright 1976 by Trent Varro. All rights reserved.)  HOW'S  YOUR BUSINESS...

The majority involve  the gun control section of the bill.  The combined efforts of gun  dub briefs and those from private citizens, Wildlife Associations and the "ad hoc" committee  of Liberal back-bench MPs produced the above results to clean  up the bilL The many amendments cannot, in the opinion of  some Liberal members allow the  bill to be passed beofre the summer recess, June 30th. Indeed,  western ruralmemhers are suggesting the bill be given third  reading in the new session.  Coast Chilcotin MP Jack Pearsall is one who advocates this  position. "Efforts to try and hurry  these amendments through in the  next two weeks would only substantiate claims by manyconstitu-  ents that the government was trying to ram the bill through.''  Pearsall also added, "There  are still a dozen or more amendments before the ministers that  have, not been presented to the  Justice Committee yet." I want to  see those amendments before  making any comments. The cooperation," continued Pearsall,  . by the people of Coast-Chilcotin  and the B.C. Wildlife Association  helped pilot many of these  amendments through to their  present status."  The assistance and contribution to better the bill has helped  me many times over.

Construction down in May  The Village of Gibsons' Building Inspector has announced that  . construction for the month of  May is down to $108,000 from a  total of $163,000 in May of 1975.  However, due to the fact that nine  alterations are v presently under  way the total number of building  permits approved rose from 5 in  May last year to 11 this year.  The inspector's report further  showed that only two new residences were granted permits  last month. In May of 1975 three  new residential and one commercial application were approved  within the village.  The year to date figures show a  drop in building values from  $578,000 in 1975 to $250,000 in  the current year. Thirty-four  applications- were issued to this  point last year and only 23 have  been issued in the current year.  Seventeen of the current year's  applications have been additions  or alterations.

Her view  was "pay as you go." "If we are  to get reductions at all it should  be for residents of the Sunshine  Coast." Mrs. Harding also stated  that she uses the ferries as  little as possible.  NEVILLE LOHN  Neville Lohn of Sargent Bay,  thinks the increased ferry rates  could put the government ferries  deeper in the hole. "It's the law  of diminishing returns" he said.  Neville believes that the best  solution lies in finding a happy  medium and figures that everybody would have gone along with  a 50% rate hike.  FRANCIS McDOUGALL        AL MENNEAR  "Happier than I was," is how  Francis. McDougall sums up her  feelings about Jack Davis' statement, "but," she continued,  "I don't think it was good enough  at all." Mrs. McDougall would  like to see half fares for cars.

CATHY MORRISON  Cathy Morrison of Gibsons  thinks "people won't say anything for a $2. passenger fare."  They are ��� so accustomed to  increases and inflation that they  will probably just accept them."  A four dollar fare was "far too  much," she said, "Though the  government is always talking  about reducing inflation- it is  probably the main cause."  TRACYTAME  Tracy Tame of Robert's Creek  answered with a definite "no"  when asked if he was happy  with the announced reductions.

Fred Holland  Works Superintendent  The affordable  A plan to make owning a  home possible for  more people.  This one's for you. It's called AHOP (The  Assisted Home Ownership,Program), and it  combines the federal assistance provided by  CMHC (Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation) with additional assistance from the B.C.  Government.  Very simply, here's how it works:  If you're a two-person household and want  to buy or build a house, and the price is within  the established AHOP price limits for the area,  you can qualify for the CMHC Interest Reduction .Loan. This loan acts to reduce the  mortgage rate to 8%, and is interest-free for the  support period.  That's only the first part. The second part  is a CMHC subsidy of up to $750 for the first  year. You're eligible if you've applied for the  maximum Interest Reduction Loan; have at  least one dependent child; and even with the  loan, your monthly payments exceed 25% of  your income.  Now here's the extra bonus from us. If  you've qualified for the above CMHC subsidy,  and your monthly payments are still more than  30% of your income, you qualify for an additional subsidy of up to $750.  Add it all up, and it means that the possibility of home ownership is greatly extended,  and now includes families in B.C. with incomes  below $10,000 a-yearl  Apian to encourage more  efficient use of land for  affordable housing.  This one's for the municipalities. And you.  You may benefit from,the resulting reduced  municipal taxes and/or increased services. It's  called MIGP (Municipal Incentive Grant Program), and it's designed to encourage the development of affordable housing and the more  efficient use of land.  "v   .  There are two grants available to  municipalities and regional districts. The first  is a $1,000 grant from CMHC. The second is a  $500 grant from us. That means the total grant  per eligible unit is $1,500. To be eligible, the  proposed housing units must be constructed for  permanent residency, be connected to municipal piped water and sewage systems, and be  served with roads having at least gravel surface.  These are the basic qualifications. There  are others that apply to density, size arid value  requirements. What they all add up to for you is  growing communities with more affordable  housing for more people.  3 A plan to make more  rental housing  available.  This one's for the builders. And you. You  benefit because it creates a more adequate supply of rental housing.  It's called ARP (Assisted Rental Program),  and it's designed to stimulate private investors  to once again invest funds in affordable rental  housing. The incentive is for the builder ... but  the benefits are passed on to you. A prototype of  this program resulted in 2,000 new rental units  started on Vancouver Island last year.  The amount of assistance available to the  builder depends on the number of units in the  project, the construction cost, the mortgage interest rate, operating costs, and prevailing  rents.  It starts with a $600 grant per unit from us  in the first year. If this grant is not sufficient to  allow, the builder to charge normal market  rents and maintain an agreed-upon return rate  on his equity, an assistance loan of $1,200 per  unit is availableTrom CMHC. If either or both of  the above still leave the builder below the agreed return rate on equity, a conditonal $1,200  interest-free loan per unit is available from the  province.  The agreement establishes initial rental  rates. After that, rents are set by market conditions, but any higher net revenues derived go  towards reducing the amount of assistance.  Basically, what it all means is more rental  housing available at more reasonable rates.  British Columbia  Department of Housing  Hon.Hugh A.Curtis, Minister.  If you want a home,  we want to help.

I  I  I.  ��������     by DONNA GAULIN  FOOD POISONING  According to the Department of  Health and Welfare, every year  over 400,000 Canadians are victims of illnesses from food poisoning. Usually, this results from  foods being handled improperly  and thereby being contaminated.  Let's take a look at food poisonings: Sickness from food can  be caused by bacterial contamination, parasitic infection of the  food or by the presence of some  poisonous chemical in the food.  ���Insects or rodents: are still a  : frequent cause of food poisoning".  .   The symptoms from this type of  toxin are nausea, cramps, head-  . ache, vomiting and/or diarrhea.  Salmonella   and ' Ctoatridhun  perfringens groups of bacteria are  ' common   sources   of   infection.  . Some people have these germs in  ; their  intestines  which  is  why  X hands ought to be washed after  visiting the toilet. Poultry, prepared meats, eggs and custard-  filled bakery products are fre-  X quent sources of these bacteria/  Cooked foods are much safer to  - eat when hot foods are kept hot  and cold foods are kept cold 1  : Staphylococci are the organisms responsible for the majority of food -poisoning illnesses.  7 The sickness comes from a poison  : produced by the bacteria. The onset of sickness is rapid.  v Staph germs are found in the  air, infected cuts and they may  be present in the nose and  ,.-,' throat. Foods such as custards,  cream sauces, mayonnaise, fowl,  ham, stews and fish are ideal for  "growth.  :: BotnBsm is the rare type of  food poisoning and it is usually  fatal. The botulism organism's  spores are quite resistant to neat  and grow without oxygen so that  canned foods that contain little  Or no acid such as meat; beans,  asparagus, corn and peas are best  j*i  TRANSCENDENTAL  MEDITATION��  /s;  INTRODUCTORY  THURSDAY, JUNE 24 AT 8pm  ELPHINSTONE SECONDARY  MOBILE UNITJ3  FOR    More    Information    Call  Daryl or Carol Henn  886-3342  HIS HOLINESS  MAHARISHI MAHESH YOGI  TM  w  Businesses are my business.

Telephone 385-9756  500 International House  880 Douglas St.  Victoria, B.C.  for growth. You can see why sterilization with steam under pressure is nefcessary in home canning  to kill all the fatal spores.  It is especially important to  keep in mind that infected food  does not necessarily taste spoiled.  Any food which shows gas production (e.g. bulging can) or if  there is a change in color or consistency, it should be destroyed.  There are other types of infections in foods. Parasites such as  beef and pork tapeworm can  cause extremely uncomfortable  digestive peoblems. Pork usually  should be cooked, fully to destroy  the organism,trJchine5_u  I would like to- mention that  there are many natural poisons  in food. Strychnine, atropine, and  cyanide, for example, occur  naturally in some foodstuffs.  Doesn't cyanide smell like almonds? We all know that many  mushrooms can be quite unpleasant. Another example is the green  area on potatoes .called solanine  which can give rise to pain and  vomiting. '  Needless to say, chemical food  poisoning due to pesticides ect.  is fairly prevalent. The effects are  certainly not as immediate but  unfortunately cumulative, and  dangerous.  For packed lunches and summer picnics here are some foods  which are usually quite safe: nuts  and peanut butter; bread; jam,  honey, mustard relish;', butter,  margarine, oil; powdered milk;  raw fruit and vegetables; cooked  and dry fruit; cheese; and dried  sausage.

INGLE HART  CONTRACTING  886-7857  FREE QUOTATIONS BY REQUEST  The final meeting of the spring  session of the Sechelt Women's  Auxiliary to St. Mary's Hospital  was held on June 10th at St.  Hilda's Church hall at 2 p.m. with  president, Mrs. Betty Monk  presiding.  Volunteer hours spent at the  hospital during the month of  May totalled 360, of which 124 are  attributable to our candy stripers  whose work is highly valued by  members of the hospital staff.  These girls are performing a  great service to the hospital  and to the community.  In her report on the very suc-  cesful W.A. luncheon recently  held in Sechelt, Mrs. Margaret  Humm expressed sincere thanks  to all who made donations of  food or who gave monetary contributions. In the case of the latter  we ask those donors who wish to  have their gift acknowledged,  to leave their name so they can be  personally contacted.  A motion was passed stating  that any one requesting the use of  the W.A. coffee urns should  please contact Mrs. BLDie Steele  at 885-2023.  Mrs. Muriel Eggins submitted  an interesting account of the  Volunteer Directors' Convention'  and the B.C.H.A. Convention  both of which she attended in  Vancouver early in May. At the  September W.A. meeting she  will give a* detailed report of  the work done at those conferences.  She also extended sincere  gratitude to the members of all  six^auxiliaries who assisted in the  Timberdays  awarded   us  the gift  decoration   of  out  float.  The  trophy  will be on display in  shop at the hospital.  Mrs. Eggins also requested  that any members who can help  with two summer picnics for  extended care patients please  call her at 885-2422.  Tea was served by Mrs. Hall  and Mrs. McDermid.  Our next meeting will be held  in St. Hilda's Church hall at  2 p.m. on September 9th.  What's a mother to do. The  latest event in my life is that  my son broke his wrist. He had  to be taken to the hospital where  we waited for hours to be seen.  The poor kid was in pain, and I  suffered.right along'with him.  They put a cast on his arm, and  wanted to bring him back for  x-rays in 10 days. Now his  wrist has to be re-set. Last year  it was his collar bone. If he  were tied in his chair he would  probably find some way to fall  and end up with a fractured  skull and a concussion.  Kids, now I know what my  mother meant when she used to  say,'you'll be the death of me  yet.' If it's not one thing it's  another. I wonder why I don't  have any grey hair? Sometimes  it seems like all I do is worry  about my children.  Being a mother has got to be  one of the hardest jobs there  is. It's tough, not the least bit  glamorous, and the pay isn't that  great. Just when everything is  running along smoothly someone  breaks their arm, flunks a class,  or some other wonderous situation occurs to set your life in a  turmoil. I wonder how many  divorces are the result of offspring?  No one said it was going to be  easy. Being a mother is a multitude of problems, but you  know, I wouldn't trade my  position for all the Valium in  Vancouver. Sometimes it gets  difficult, and I ask myself.'Why  did I ever get into this position  in the first place?' The answer  always comes back loud and  clear. If it weren't for the kids  I'd have to wash the dishes  myself.  TM promises better health  , Daryl Henn personally trained  by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi  to teach The Trancedental meditation (TM) technique will  be giving a course in Gibsons  starting Thursday, June 24, 8pm.  It takes four days of about 2  hours each day of instruction  to learn the technique, after  once learned it is practiced  daily for a period of 15 or 20  minutes.  The main point about TM,  Henn claims, 'is that the' technique is effortless, that the  effects of this technique are  completly natural, and it is this  naturalness that allows the body  and mind to enjoy the benefits  of greater creativity, improved  health and increased social  enviromental awareness which  is desperately needed to adapt  in a positive style to the pace  of our civilization.  Briefly described, the experience of TM is brought about  by the increasingly finer amounts  of physical and mental activity  during 20 minutes of TM the  body gains a profound amount of  rest that is much more significant than that of 6 hours sleep,  simultaneously the mind states  of less excitation of thoughts  and periodically the state of  least excitation of conciousness.  It is this experience of the state  of least excitation of conciousness that is missing from the lives  of people in the world today  Without this experience on a  regular basis, regardless of who  you are or what position you  have in life, that life will inevitably become weak and will  show signs of suffering on every  level, body, mind and behaviour.  When daily activity is enjoyed  less and achievements cease to  be realized, the process of self  doubts and the syndrome of  emotional disturbances begin  to manifest.  Every aspect of physical law  at its subtlest can be observed  to contain within its stucture  the state of least amount of  excitation. It is this state that  allows for the weU being and  continuity ofthe different aspects  that comprise the whole structure.  As Maharishi is fond of saying,  'Strengthen the root and enjoy  the fruit.'  Contact the state, of least  excitation of conciousness  and enjoy the enlivening effects  that it has on all our experiences.  .For further information contact  Daryl or Carol Henn at 885-3342  and come on to the lecture  at Elphinstone mobile unit  #3 this Thursday.
