The resolution  followed last Thursday's announcement by Davis that resident cards will not be granted.  At last Thursday's regular  meeting McNevin told the board  that the delegation of mayors and  regional district chairmen, who  met with Davis on May 21 to discuss the increases, had been given no indication that the type  of decision announced last Thursday might be reached. The members of the-delegation left with  the definite impression that a  commuter card system would be  recommended to cabinet and that  all residents would receive a 50%  reduction. Davis', surprise announcement of a system of commuter tickets, available in books  of ten to be used, within one  month, caught all the local representatives by surprise. The new  ticket books will be available only  to residents and are completely  non-transferable.  Gibsons Mayor Larry Labonte  stated Thursday afternoon that  he felt Davis had double-crossed  the delegation and that further  ^steps would now have to be considered.  McNevin has already sent a  telegram to Victoria asking for the  meeting with Premier Bill Bennett and cabinet but as of press  time no answer had .been received.  MLA Don Lockstead also made  clear his displeasure with Davis'  announcement and claimed that  the minister had made no significant changes to the original proposal.  In a further statement last  Monday Davis again upped ,the  ferry revenues by disallowing the  senior citizens rate on weekends.  According to Lockstead this  means that the area is how worse  off than under the original fare  schedule as only about 80 local  residents will be able to take advantage of the commuter ticket  system.  Other protests being planned  include a possible suit by a group  of local citizens, with the help of:  . Village of Gibsons solicitors, that  will attempt to claim that the province has both a legal and moral  responsibility to provide transportation to the nearest major  centre at a reasonable price.  A report on Davis' accusations  against ferry employees in last  week's Coast News has also been  a major topic in the legislature  this week. Last week's story on  the resident discount stated that  Mayor Larry Labonte had told a  press conference after his return  from the meeting that one of  Davis' major concerns in granting  the resident cards was a pilfering  problem at the Horseshoe Bay  ticket, booths. Labonte claimed  that Davis had stated that a serious shortchanging situation was  arising with ferry employees  pocketing the difference between  commuter and tegular fares.  MLA Lockstead asked Davis  about his statement in legislature  last week and Davis flatly denied  the charge. Labonte later pointed .  out that most of the discussion  on this issue had in fact come  from Ferries manager Charles  Gallagher and not directly from  Davis. The union is still very upset about the charges and there is  little doubt that they will be  presented again.  At Thursday night's SCRD  meeting director Peter Hoemberg  though supporting the proposed  cabinet meeting, expressed his  doubts about the possibility of  being able to force the government to back down, as they have.  already revised their stance once  and any further change would ���  have to come after the June 1  price hike.  The local government representatives are, however, in full  agreement on the position that  every possible type of protest will  be considered before accepting  the new rates.  r ..........  ON SUKlDAY 700 kids were riding hard and steering fast at Sunnycrest Plaza in this year's bicycle rodeo  ������*  �� t ; >'  notice  Ferry protest scheduled'for this Sunday  The B.C. Government Employees Union  served 72 hour strike notice on the B.C. Ferries  Management last Saturday, though according to  union officials it is not likely that the workers will  actually walk off the job.  The strike notice was served after talks with  Labor Minister Alan Williams broke down when  the government refused a union proposal to set up  a court of enquiry. The main differences between  the two sides are problems with overtime payments and the laying off of 420 ferry workers.  The government has since backed down and rescinded the order for 200of those originally scheduled for the June 1 layoffs.  The union is not likely; to strike since Labor  Minister Alan Willaims has already informed  them that he intends to legislate them back to  work if necessary. A Monday morning meeting  will discuss the provision of emergency services to  isolated communities.  A Sunday morning ferry protest failed to materialize last week  when only 25 cars and approximately 50 people turned up at the  Langdale terminal. Organizers of  the protest blamed a lack of publicity and the early morning hour  for the poor turnout.  The protest was organized only  24 hours before the set time of  8:00 Sunday morning. It was originally  hoped that the, protest  would carry this area's demands  one step further by boarding the  9:00 a.m. sailing of the Sunshine  Coast Queen'and refusing to disembark at the Horseshoe Bay terminal. SCRD Chairman John Mc-  j^evini who was present as a sym-  "pathetic observer stated that the  idea of the demonstration was to  tie up the ferry service and cause  a corresponding loss in revenue  for the B.C. Ferries which it was  hoped would force Davis to take  ; another look at his resident card  decision.  The demonstration was finally  called off when it was realized  there were not enough protestors'  cars to effectively seal off the 9:00  a.m. sailing. The demonstrators  than adjourned to the Dogwood  Cafe for a breakfast planning  meeting.  The meeting elected an 11 man  \ committee to take charge of a repeat protest scheduled for next  Sunday. The committee will  phone all. residents of the Sunshine Coast'during this weekend  and will hold a protest rally next  Friday night at 8:00 p.m. at the  Roberts Creek Community Hall.  Next Sunday's protest will attempt to board and block off both  Langdale-Horseshoe Bay ferries  ' and keep them from sailing right  ' through the day.  block the ferries.  ~ For further information on next  Sunday's protest come to the Friday night rally at Roberts Creek.  The protest committee will be  meeting throughout the week and  further information will be forthcoming. The protest is scheduled  for 8:00 a.m. Sunday, June 6 at  Langdale. The committee asks  that you bring a lunch and plenty  of friends.,  The election of the committee  and the full week of organizing  time will, according to the members of the committee, give them  plenty of time to make everyone  aware of the demonstration and to  get out enough cars to effectively  Recycling gets funds  Davis Bay residents Want property cleaned up  ) Davis Bay resident Fran Ovens  is sick of looking at her neighbors' messy yard and has decided  -to try doing something to get it  i cleaned up. At last Thursday  night's SCRD meeting Fran presented a sketch of the adjoining  property, leased by a local rental  company and taxi service, then  told the board the recent history  of the property.  In the last few years Fran has  been neighbor to five different  operations, and to make matters  worse, recently the owners of the  property have been discussing  plans to build a drive-in restaurant, a gas station, or an apartment block. .������'������������  When Fran first moved into her  house on Whitaker Road in Davis  Bay, half way between the store  building and Vic's Motel in 1971  the lot to the west of her was still  residential though the resident of  the property at that time was operating a small shake cutting  business out of his backyard.  , It wasn't long however, before  the house was gone and the lot  was filled to make way for a go-  kart track. Fortunately for the  local residents the go-kart track  was short-lived but before their  eardrums could again become accustomed to the silence the track  was ripped up and an old building  on the property was converted  into a cafe. This project also  proved short-lived as no sooner  did the cafe get into full operation before it,was badly damaged  by fire; Again the lot was empty  for a while, then the next business, a trucking office, moved  on to the site. The trucking company's owners however, soon discovered the area was not properly  zoned for their enterprise and  pulled out. Finally the lot was occupied by a rental company and  used as storage and parking  for both the rental outfit and a  local taxi company.  Fran claims that the property  has now deteriorated so far that  she can no longer put up with it.  The next door businesses have  damaged the trees surrounding  the property, knocked down her  fence and piled stacks of lumber,  the old go-kart track and two  wrecked cars around the lot.  When Fran bought her lot in 1971  it was zoned residential then  shortly after she moved to the  area the zoning was abruptly  changed to commercial.  Fran is after some protection  for the local homeowners.' She  feels the value of their property  has declined because the local  businesses and- the property  owners will not keep their lots up  to reasonable standards. She  wants the SCRD to introduce a  bylaw that will force people to  clean up this type of unsightly  mess and to hold noise in a residential zone down to a minimum.  If the recent number of noise  complaints are any indication of  the feeling of most residents this  type of bylaw may not he far  away.  The Thursday night meeting of  the SCRD admitted that there was  very little they could do to correct  the situation at the present time.  They promised to further consider  introducing an Unsightly Premises bylaw and told Fran they would  talk to the property's owners.    .  Peninsula Recycling manager  Tom Haigh was informed last  week that the Sunshine Coast  Regional District has agreed to  supply a portion of the organization's operating budget at least  for the next two months.  Public Utilities Chairman Peter  Hoemberg told last Thursday  night's meeting that the board  had agreed to supply the $444 per  month that Haigh had requested  on the understanding that Haigh  tighten up his .bookkeeping and  report back to the SCRD each  month. The grant will be further  extended for another three  months as long as Haigh shows  some improvement in the way the  organization is being run.  Haigh will now be going back  to the Gibsons and Sechelt councils in an attempt to get their  replies, as soon as possible. The  provincial government will then"  be approached for a further snare  of the costs. Haigh is optimistic  now that the SCRD has given  their approval the worst obstacles  in the way of continuing the operation have been passed.

Davis must resign  Jack Davis' announcement last Wednesday in regard to the new commuter  rates available on B.C. Ferries must be  included among the great double-crosses  of the 20th century.  Davis successfully stopped the demonstrations and protests by promising  half-fare resident cards, properly controlled by the local authorities in order  to prevent the abuses that have gone on  in the past when they were issued by the  B.C. Ferries management. Then in a sudden about face Davis announced that the  resident cards v/ere not forthcoming and  that a system of commuter tickets which  will be of benefit to only a very small  portion of the population would be issued  in their place.  It would seem that either Mr. Davis  lied to the representatives from this area  when they went to Victoria, or he does not  have sufficient clout in cabinet to get his  recommendations on how to run his own  . department through that cabinet.  Either way he should resign.  The commuter ticket system as it now  stands is of benefit to approximately 80  people' on the whole Sunshine  Coast.  This is such a small percentage of the  34,000 people affected by the new rates  that we may as well forget about the  whole thing.  In addition our representatives were  told at the Victoria meeting that of the  $90 million loss incurred by the ferries in  1974 (the last year for which valid statistics are available) only $3 million of  that loss was a direct result of the Horseshoe Bay- Langdale run. If these figures  are accurate there are many more questions which must be answered. Davis  claims that "users must pay." If so then  why are we faced with the heaviest increases for such a small part of the overall loss?  Our mayors and regional board  chairmen have now asked for a meeting  with the full cabinet. Perhaps they will  be able to convince the cabinet of the  merit of their argument. Apparently Jack  Davis couldn't, if he ever tried.  In the meantime, it is apparent we  must keep up the protests from this end.  The only way you can get anything from  a government that apparently cares more  about the financial statement than the  people, is for the people to make so much  noise that they can't be ignored.  Strike noticie  The B.C. Government Employees  Union gave the B.C. Ferries management  a 72 hour strike notice last Saturday. Unless rapid progress is made in the following two days, this means that by the time  you are reading this editorial the workers  aboard the Sunshine Coast Queen and the  Langdale Queen will be ��� free to take  "legal job action" whenever they so desire.  The only gleam of hope in this otherwise dismal picture is the promise by  Labor Minister Alan Williams that if  necessary the employees will be legislated back to work. For once we are  forced to support a Socred proposal. The  ferry workers have no right to strike when  the effect on the communities of the Sunshine Coast and other areas such as  Bowen and the Gulf Islands will in fact  be complete isolation, especially when  the dispute is mainly centring around  overtime payments and a reduction in  staff which is essential to efficient ferry  operation.     v.-..      -^ ��� ;,.,,���.:,���;���'  If a strike 'is averted there is little  doubt that slowdowns, work to rule campaigns and late sailings will, at least for  the next few months, become part of our  way of life. The ferry workers are afraid  that if they actually take the step of going  out on strike they will be legislated back  under an unfavorable imposed' settlement.  At this point the major question is,  what tactics will the ferry workers adopt?  They may consider it necessary to protest their situation, but if they do, we  hope they will take the public into consideration before reaching a final verdict.  Otherwise they will soon find they have  no support at all.  Protest plans  Those protestors who gathered at  Langdale last Sunday for the proposed  ferry boarding should be congratulated,  if for no other reason than the simple fact  that they were willing to get up at 7  o'clock in the morning and drive to Langdale in an attempt to pressure Victoria  into taking yet another look at the resident rate situation.  The fact that there were not enough  vehicles present to make the plan effective is not important. The group had no  cohesive leadership and the decision to  take the action was only decided upon 24  hours before the protest was to begin.  Under those circumstances it is amazing  enough that 25 cars and approximately 50  people could show up for the set time.  The group that arrived at Langdale  on Sunday morning were perhaps, more  militant than the average Sunshine Coast  citizen, but at the same time they were  unwilling to see the demonstration result in violence unless absolutely neces-.  sary. The committee, appointed at the  session after the protest was cancelled,  appear determined to make their point,  no matter what: The idea of boarding the  ferries and refusing to disembark has  some merit, the loss of revenue for the  ferries will definitely make Davis take notice of the situation. At the same time  however, there are a number of problems  which could bring about a very volatile  situation, the worst part of which is that  those vehicles on the first ferry who are  not part of the protest and wish to leave  at Horseshoe Bay may not be unloaded  due to the protest stoppage between  them and the wharf.  One thing the committee can not do  without is people. The more protestors  available to fill the ferry the safer the situation. Perhaps it is just one of those  times you've got to get out and stand up  for what you believe in. If we back  down in the face of government threats,  next time they will know they can get  away with it.  iiiiiiiiiiiiiH  FIVE YEARS AGO  Sechelt's movie theatre was  completely destroyed by fire.

Education Minister Pat McGeer's announcement that the  province of B.C. may be spending  too much money on needless  schooling has received support  from a wide variety of people.  Education in the past years has  been losing the confidence of the  public as a solution for better job  employment. Employment, however, is only one aspect for which  education is designed. It certainly may be true that a carpet layer  does not need to know much  about the sciences, literature, or  world history to be a success at  his job. It is much more advantageous for him to have a feel for  his particular type of work. Therefore, is the money that goes out  for students who do not go to university being wasted?  Critics of the education system  point out that many university  graduates have no practical knowledge of the outside world. Theoretical background, they say, is  not an asset when seeking employment where skill and training  to a specific task is much more  important.  If McGeer's proposal was  adopted the immediate result  ��� would be a sharp increase in the  unemployment rate in the community. Hundreds of young people would be looking for jobs in  an already depressed job market.  A carpet layer may, however,  at times in his life want or be  forced to do something else than  just lay carpets. He may want to  express his discontent over the  recent hike in ferry rates to the  minister concerned. He will probably get a more meaningful  response to his letter of protest if the contents of the letter  are understandable and to the  point. The ability to write clearly  and effectively should never be  underestimated.  Commentary byDouGSEWEu.  Unhappy with slow-downs  . There are a, lot of Sunshine  ,; Coast residents who aren 't. tcKv  ''7b^ppy'withv-me.B7C;;;-F.e^7'v^k-!  ers this week. It seems like they  feel that somehow the dispute between the unionandtheB.C. Ferries management has created a  lot of aggression which is now being vented on those members of  the public who must use the service. Unfortunately they are  right. The strikes are doing  nothing for the workers' cause,  management is happy enough to  see the service disrupted and the  public sympathy beginning to  turn towards the government's  side of the issue.  Organized labor has adopted  some strange tactics for showing  their displeasure with the progress of contract talks. This is all  too apparent especially when taking a look at the long list of pub-  . lie servants and employees of  crown corporations who have taken the decision to strike over the  last few months. The postal workers showed their displeasure with  Bryce Mackasey by bankrupting,  countless small businesses right  across the country and by bringing thousands more to the brink  of destruction. These few hundred militant postal workers were  allowed to cause irreparable  damage to our country just so  they could force the government  to fork over another few dollars a  week.  .  There is something drastically  wrong with any country which  allows one small faction to affect  the livelihood of the other 20 million people who pay their wages.  Canada already has the highest  man hours lost due to strikes in  the world and every year we're  getting further and further ahead,  partially due to our government's  inability to crack down on dissident groups with ridiculously  high wage and benefit demands.  In British Columbia the situation is even worse. We have suffered through strikes by rail workers, hospital employees, ICBC  employees and a number of other  sections of the public servants  category within the last few  months, to say nothing of the  countless strikes in the private  sector. Strangely enough, though  the Socreds have long promised  to legislate public workers back  to their jobs, when it actually gets  "down to it they either back off or  wait until the strike has almost  run its course before ordering  work to again commence. The result is that the unions are never  actually sure whether the government will be willing to bring down  the order and every time a strike  is called a. confrontation involving  threats of intervention becomes  inevitable. Victoria seems to feel  that intervention is a bargaining  tool, not a means of protecting the  public from the adverse effects of  a greedy minority.  The hospital and rail workers  though now technically back on  the job are still creating waves.  Some of the points they are making are quite valid, especially in  the case of the hospital employees, and at the end of the cooling  off period if the situation has not  been resolved they will  again  have the right to take action. If  they do, once again it will be the  public that will suffer, not the  workers or the government. It is  Victoria's job to make sure this,  situation doea not arise, amd if it  does, to be sure that no adverse  effects to our-economy or our  health are allowed to develop because of the union's action. The  unions may have the right to  strike but a duly elected government must have the right to end  that strike.  The situation with the B.C.  Ferry workers must be viewed as  part of this larger question of.  union-government confrontation.  If we are forced to wait two or .  three hours to board the ferry because of union slowdowns, or work  to rule campaigns then'we can  either accept it or exercise our  democratic right and petition the  government to intervene and settle the dispute. The present  course of the union-B.C. Ferries  negotiations would seem to indicate that unless this work to rule  campaign is successful, which is  extremely unlikely, that a full  scale" strike is just around the corner. If the present action had any  chance of success it would be  worthwhile just because it may  avoid the necessity of a full-scale  walkout. However, the most likely  effect will just be a loss of public  support for the workers. If it  comes down to a full-scale strike  this is one thing they cannot afford to do without.  Labor Minister Allan Williams  has promised us that the ferries  will be legislated back if they walk  off the job. I hope for once the  Socreds are willing to stick by  their promises. If they can convince the union they just might  save us a lot of headaches and  economic sorrow.  The public service unions of  this country have few lessons  coming which they should have  learned 30 years ago. Public support is the key to success in any  labor action. When the unions  start considering the welfare of  the people, the people will be a lot  more sympathetic .when the next  strike comes along.  Letters to the Editor  NO MARINAS  Editor: After reading the ar-  , tide in May 11 issue of your paper  by Rob Dykstra, the impact of the  proposed marina development is  starting to hit home.  ,   As a taxpayer and waterfront  property owner which is apparently going to be involved, either  directly or indirectly, I am seriously concerned about my future  livelihood. It would appear from  the article you printed, that the  zoning has been completed, all  development has been halted ���  to put it straight, the squeeze has  been put on all waterfront properties in order that this village will,  in the future, have control of the  harbor area ��� this, is the way I  see it and it's shocking!  Let's look at it another way ���  also as a taxpayer.  I am not a pleasure boater ��� I  find it an expensive recreation so  I choose other forms of recreation, camping, trailering, curling,  etc., and also use a light 14 foot  boat for any boating I do, which  may be launched easily without  the facilities of a marina. I feel  sure there are many other taxpayers in the village of Gibsons that  also have other interests in the  recreational field ��� golfing,  bowling, curling, flying, camping, etc., etc., who have no interest whatsoever in pleasure boating.  I, personally, am one taxpayer  who is not in favor of my tax dollars or any public money being  spent to provide marina facilities for pleasure boaters.  Boating is really no different  than any other recreation. AU  recreations cost money to develop. When the Golf and Country  Club was developed the people  who wanted golf got busy and put  in their money and work and built  their golf course. When the Winter Club people wanted a curling  rink they did the same, using  their money and built it themselves. The same method could  be used to build a skating rink  and the sooner the better.  Surely if pleasure boating people are interested they can start  a yacht club and look after their  own moorage and marina facilities. Or are boaters a special  breed that require the taxpayers  of Gibsons to build them a marina? And in the event it doesn't  pay off, subsidize the expenses of  *  ���*  X  \  i,  operating it? The present government wharf is being subsidized by  $200 per month by the village or  I stand corrected!  I feel that a marina complex of  that magnitude for the Village of  Gibsons to undertake could well  turn into a financial nightmare.  I note that no final cost can be  given at this time, yet plans are  to proceed so it would appear that  cost is not a factor! Nice, when  some one else's money is being  spent. It could also develop into  another Montreal Olympic ^situation.  Let's face facts. Laying out the  plans and drawings and showing  pictures and describing the beauty is air very well. Would $3  million be a conservative estimate  of the cost? Over V* million has  already been spent. I  ' What guarantee is there that  this huge investment is going to  show a suitable return? Why not  use the money to invest in  something with a guaranteed income return and let the pleasure  boaters or private interests get  involved with marinas.  Or better still why not use that  money to the advantage of the  village where it should go ��� to  t  ���  building decent roads and maintaining them, building sidewalks  and street lighting, water lines  and sewers. After all what is  the function of a municipality ���  certainly not going into competitive business ventures ���' using  taxpayers' money and let the rest  of the village go to H ....  This is only one view as a taxpayer. I feel others think in similar terms. I request they stand up  and be counted.  ���DOUGLAS H.SMTTH  Gibsons.

In view of the appalling deterioration of the CBC during the past few years we feel it is  imperative that our demands for  B.C. control of programming, for  improved technical facilities and  for renewed standards of quality  Education as taught in the pub-,  lie school system is not usually  designed to be practical training  or provide students with a taste  of the real world. If parents really  want kids to get a feel of the  outside world,,stick them on an  assembly line, start them at age  16 digging ditches or working in a  beauty parlor. The school system  has been working on the assumption that it is a good idea to provide the stimulus and the instruction to students to learn about a  wide variety of subjects and get  ideas about different ways of life  and other areas of the world before they enter the working world..  The1 hope of the 16th century  humanists was that education  would lead to a more perfect  world. Their cherished hopes  were dashed, however, as it soon  became apparent that reigning  monarchs were more concerned  with power than the upgrading of  society.  Although the humanists lost  put in their bid to improve the  world their plan contained a lot of  merit. If a man or woman knows  only one topic or task he really  is a dull individual to be with. He  could be an excellent carpet layer  but one gets tired of listening to  a discussion about the advantages  of indoor-outdoor carpeting after  two or three hours. Chances are  a carpet layer gets tired of carpets  too, but what else does he know,'  having already talked about the7  weather all day to his customers.  A broad background of other subjects and interests usually makes  for a happier individual.  The increasing amount of everyday problems and decisions  that the working man has to daily  meet requires careful consideration and thought. The cost of  taking business forms or tax problems to specialists is becoming increasingly higher. People must  again begin to do more things for  themselves in order to save their  dwindling pay cheque. Education may not give you the specific abilities to solve your particular problem but it usually gets  you started in the right direction.  The effect of education cannot  always be measured in a direct  way. In a certain way it molds  your personality.  Education should not necessarily be a. prerequisite to employment, but more accurately a measure of the individual's ability  to learn. Many persons have done,  well despite a short stay in school:,  Somerset Maugham's character,  the verger, who lost his job be-  cause he could not read, but went  on to become a successful businessman is the classic story of.  achievement despite little educa-.  tion. ;;'-  McGeer's proposal,  if established, would tend to divide the  population of communities into  more sharply defined sections of,  blue collar and white collar work-;  ers.  A society that has always  prided itself on administering to  the needs of the common man  would be unwise to intentionally  create   barriers   between   these  types of working people.

CBC Reform  6752 Dufferin Avenue,  West Vancouver, B.C.  \ t*\ *-^���nr~^  Each morning (ferries permitting) a huge stack of mail arrives  upon my desk. Each day I hastily  rip open the sealed envelopes,  like a burglar robbing Price  Waterhouse the night before the  Oscar ceremonies, in the vain  hope that something interesting  might result from those numerous  pounds of mutilated trees which  half the world seems to feel that  I can not possibly live without.  Usually I am disappointed.  If all the press releases sent out  to the newspapers of this country  by federal, provincial and private  departments in any single day  were dumped into Howe Sound  I'm sure we could have the  world V first papier mache bridge.  Habitat alone must use up  enough paper to keep J. V. Kline  rubbing his hands with glee.  Now don't get me wrong, I'm  not objecting to the government  keeping the press informed about  local current events, this is a  necessary part of the government-press relationship. It's just  that I'm not all that interested in  the technical justification for artificial insemination of, the Whoopee bird or the names of the 6,074  people who graduated from the  Rosemary Brown School of  Charm. Neither am I all that interested in receiving the latest  official photos of our cabinet ministers and MLAs ��� at the best  of times they are not a picturesque lot.  The federal government is the  worst continuous offender. It  has not yet occurred to them that  a B.C. weekly newspaper might  not be interested in knowing the  name of the newly appointed official manufacturer of army  underwear whose factory is seven  miles off the east coast of Newfoundland, or care too greatly that  Trudeau held a Liberal party rally  two weeks ago at Bushwack,  Saskatchewan. Not only are Ottawa's news releases often slightly irrelevant but by the time they  get around to. addressing that '  Coast News envelope and the post  Sunshine  school  The Sunshine School, currently  operating in portable classrooms  at Gibsons Elementary, and  through the funding of die Association for the Mentally Retarded,  has now received funding through  the Department of Education.  It is hoped that the association wiU mm redirect their funds  and efforts to the creation of a  Sheltered Workshop for students  who graduate from the Sunshine  School.  ��?  office delivers it, the event is  . ancient history. Personally I enjoy  these glimpses into the past but I  imagine there are editors who are  not quite so understanding.  It must also be stressed that  these press releases are not your  standard run of the mill Gestetner  jobs. Most of these reports which  are destined for my waste basket  are printed on high quality bond  paper with huge crests that look  like they're gold engraved. A recent annual report from the provincial Department of Consumer  Services looks like it's handcrafted. Minimum printing cost  would have to be a dollar each. A  Habitat volume entitled "Human  Settlement" would have to be  worth at least three dollars and  so far we've received one each  day for the last three days. These  are not isloated examples, each  of the 30 some odd federal departments and the 18 or so provincial  departments figure we rate at  least one copy of their annual report. Perhaps they just want to  convince us that they actually are  doing something. On top of this  there are countless societies,  crown corporations and large industrial concerns that also seem  to feel that we would be heartbroken if left off their mailing  lists.  The amount of money that is  wasted in supplying the media of  this country with useless reports  and press releases must be incredible, but then again at least  it keeps a few civil servants off  the streets. It is hardly my place  to do these honest workers out of  a job, after aU their efforts are  good for a laugh.  So, tomorrow when another  stack of envelopes lands on my  desk, once again I'll dig in with  vim and vigor in the full knowledge that it is up to me to keep  these thousands of unknown soldiers burning away the overtime  candle on my tax money so that  I can be properly informed, in a  600 page, full color, embossed in  gold manuscript that looks like it  was stolen from some medieval  monk, that my taxes are being  wasted away by an inefficient  bureaucracy.  Now, if we could only get one of  the printing contracts then it  might be a different story.  r  i  i  i  i  i.  The staff of life  Question: Should I be concerned about my fluid intake? I  thought that a rule-of-thumb was  that eight glasses of water per  day will cleanse the body.  Answer: In general, blood pressure can serve as a guide to fluid  intake. You might also consider  the different sort of liquids that  are already part of your daily  habits.  Clear fluids can, indeed, help  to flush the system of wastes.  However, a problem can arise if  there is too much salt. Fluids, are  absorbed back into the system by  the kidney instead of being evacuated, and yet there is still thirst.  Too much blood fluid can increase blood pressure.  This is  called hypertension. Too much  tissue fluid can result in edema or  a soft swelling of the extremities.  . Your need for vitamins also ap-,  pears to be in proportion to-the-  amount you. drink. Alcohol consi-.  derabiy increases the need for B  vitamins. The caffeine in coffee,  tea and cola soft drinks stimulates  the heart beat and increases the  kidney activity causing more of  the B vitamins to be lost.  A lack of potassium allows sodium (from salt, for example) and  water to pass into the cells causing bloating.. Sources of potassium for correct fluid balance are  fruits and vegetables, preferably,  fresh.  by DONNA GAULCS  I  I  I  I  ..I  New school on Chaster Road  , School District No. 46 trustees  voted on Thursday night to go  ahead with the purchase of a site  on Chaster Road for a new elementary school, if the she meets  the approval of the health inspector.  The new school, which the  board hopes wiU he ready for use  in September, 1977, will house  grades one through four. John  Denley, superintendent for the  school district, hopes to establish  the new students at Gibsons Elementary as a group in September,  1976 and then move the pupils as  a unit when the new school is  completed in 1977.  The proposed five acre site on  Chaster  Road is basically flat  ground. George Knack, architect  for the new building, said the  whole site should be suitable for  development, although drainage  might be a problem.  Kindergarten  registration  Parents who are intending to  enrol their children in Kindergarten in September and have  not yet registered them are asked  to do so at the nearest elementary school in their area. Accurate  student counts are needed by the  school district in order to have the  necessary staffing requirements.

Sudden losses of fluid  drain the system particularly of  potassium which can be dangerous.  Wisely decide how to regulate  your fluids. These should be balanced correctly with your diet for  positive health.  Question: Folks seem to be rediscovering herbal teas. Which  ones should I try?  Answer: It is in the planning  and planting of gardens that  many people express their identity with nature.  Nothing can compare with  vegetables and herbs fresh from  the soil. Herbs have, of course,  been traditionally used as re-  freshments-and in the preparation  of medicines.-    '      ��� ,*:.-$?--..���  'A few-common herbs which aid  digestion and generally impart a  'good' feeling are cammomile,  borage, dandelion, balm, mint,  nettle, rosemary, comfrey and angelica. Tisanes or teas made with  these herbs are refreshing and  often helpful in aiding the cure,  of colds and minor aches and  pains.  Question: What is the difference between evaporated milk  and sweetened condensed milk?  Answer: Evaporated milk is  made by removing a little more  than half the water from fresh  whole or skim milk. The only nutritional difference between regular fresh milk is that evaporated  milk has twice the calories and  other nutrients per ounce.  Sweetened condensed milk is  quite a different thing. It is made  by first adding 15% sugar to fresh  whole milk then removing two-  thirds of the water. The resulting  product contains over 40% sugar  and about 120 calories per ounce  compared with evaporated whole  milk at 40 calories per ounce.  Evaporated milk is a better buy  than whole milk. It can be diluted  Alternative  schools  Gibsons and Pender Harbour  could be the location of Alternative Schools in School District  No. 46. The intent of the Alternative Schools is to assist students who have dropped out of  regular classes or who are having  difficulties adjusting to the normal classroom situations. The  chief aim of the schools, said  John Denley, is rehabilitation.  Students taking the program will  be taught basic skills. Career exploration and actual work experience are also to be emphasized.  Denley said that it was his hope  the alternative schools would be  situated close to existing schools  in order to allow interaction with  other students.  The alternative schools are to  be established with the cooperation of the Department of Education, Human Resources and the  Attorney-General's Department.  ��� John Denley is very enthusiastic about the development of the  schools. He feels the present high  level of cooperation between the  three departments will make the  program a great success.  Each school will have one  teaching instructor and a child  counsellor.  Ferry poetry  ByMikeJepson  My God them boys have did it again,  And it's something us peasants don'tlike,.  Just after we got over thatlCBC deal,  They've given the ferry ratesan awful hike.  They remind me of another gang,  Which for years kept people on the run.  The only difference between Jesse James and gang,  They haven't yet used a gun.  I wonder if they are mad at us,  It sure does seem unfair,  I wonder if it would have made a difference  If we had put down in the other square.  Oh well, we will not go under,  We will get by I know,  there will be another election,  We have,three and a half years to go.  As long as we don't lose our memory book,,  And good sense we must keep,  Because as the good Bible tells us,  As you sow, so shall ye reap.  It is no use getting ulcers,  Or to rave and shout,  Them boys were voted in,  And they can be voted out.  And in the meantime we must be cagey,  Just to stay alive;  So I'll let some air out of my camper's tires,  So that the height is under six foot five.  New Sechelt  gravel plant  Pacific Rim Aggregates will officially open its upgraded modern  gravel processing, plant on Porpoise Bay on June 5 at 11:00 a.m.  The plant which was modernized at an overall cost of under  $2 million will have several  unique new features.  Truck hauling has been replaced with a faster and more  convenient 1200 foot long conveyor belt. Operation of the pit will  now be monitored with TV cameras. The plant is also to have its  own water system. The water  supply, due to a drop in elevation  from a creek about a mile away,  will not need pumping to maintain necessary pressure at the'  wash screens.

Sweetened condensed  milk can cost as much as twice the  amount and has only specific  uses.  Question: Are there any foods  that can help me to relax and  sleepbetter?  Answer: Nutritional factors  known to contribute to relaxation  are calcium, magnesium and vitamins Band D.  Some foods which have a soothing effect on the nervous system  are milk, wheat germ, brewer's  yeast, yogurt and molasses.  A glass of warm milk containing two teaspoons of dark molasses before bedtime is an excellent ���  sedative drink. If you have a great.  deal of tension, calcium tablets ,  with milk or lecithin will aid the  relaxation of the nerves.

He noted that two  other laundromats in the area discharged their waste into a ground  field and though this too was not  ecologically sound it was greatly  preferable to the phosphate and  visual pollution that would be  caused by the proposed operation  Area  D representative   Peter  Hoemberg added that it was possible to install treatment facilities  but that more than likely the cost .  would be prohibitive.

Applications for two crown  water leases and one Agricultural  Land Reserve exclusion have also  been received. The water lots  cover 9.4 hectares, the ALR exclusion covers 41.9.hectares.  Stott also reported that the  goals and objectives of Jhe Sechelt Vicinity Plan Committee  have now been drafted but work  on a detailed policy will not begin  until a report from the Habitat  Protection Unit of Environment  Canada is received.

Legal  SUNSHINE COAST  REGIONAL DISTRICT  Synopsis of By-law 103  SaMMskm Regulation By-law  The Board of Directors of the  Sunshine Coast Regional District has given third reading to the  Sunshine Coast Regional District  Subdivision Regulation By-law  No. 103, 1975. This is a by-law  to regulate the subdivision of  land, including the size, shape  and arrangement of parcels of  land, and the provision of roads,  utilities and other services pursuant to sections 775 and 798A  of the Municipal Act and Part 6  of the Land Registry Act, in order  to ensure that development in the  Regional District is orderly,  economical and to the general  benefit of the community.  The by-law will replace Sunshine Coast Regional District  Subdivision Control By-law No.  28,1970, and will apply to land in  Electoral Areas A, B, C, D, E and  F of the Regional District. It  divides the land into zones, and  establishes regulations applicable  within each zone pertaining to the  minimum and minimum average  size of lots created by subdivision, and the services required as  a condition of subdivision. In general, more services are required  when smaller lots will be created.  The metric system of measurement is used, and revised numerical standards pertaining to such  matters as lot dimension and size  are incorporated to reflect metric  measurement and Regional District density and servicing policies. The policies of the Islands  Trust and the B.C. Land Commission are also incorporated in  By-law 103.  Take notice that the above is a  synopsis of By-law No. 103. The  by-law may be inspected at the  offices of the Sunshine Coast  Regional District, 1238 Wharf  Street, Sechelt, B.C. during office  hours, namely 8:30 a.m. to 4:00  p.m. Monday to Wednesday, 8:30  a.m. to 5:45 p.m. Thursday and  Friday and that the synopsis is  not intended to be and is not to  be deemed to be an interpretation of the by-law.  Sunshine Coast Regional District  Box 800, Sechelt, B.C.  885-2261  A. G. Pressley  Secretary-Treasurer  L CBC Radio  Sunshine Coast News, June 1,1976.  ACTRA award programs this weekend  This weekend the CBC will re-  broadcast three programs which  won ACTRA awards earlier this  year. Friday at 8:03 you can hear  the documentary prepared by  Elizabeth Gray to commemorate  the 100th year of the Supreme  Court of Canada. It examines the  historic and human interest aspects of this institution, not very  well known to most of us. Among  those interviewed is Hon. Mr.  Justice Bora Laskin.  From Montreal the winner of  the best radio program of the year  "Pro Nobis Peccatoribus" can  be heard Sunday at 1:03 p.m.  Written by the late James G. Harris and Camille Langevin it is the  story of Father Charles Chiniquy  who was on the one hand a distinguished priest whose writings  and lectures on temperance won  him the respect and admiration  of the 19th century world and on  the other a notorious apostate and  shameless womanizer. The dramatization takes the form of a debate between two history students each of whom has written a  paper on the Kamouraska-born  priest dealing with opposing sides  of his nature, with frequent flashbacks to incidents in his life.  CBC Playhouse, Sunday, 10:30  p.m. presents "Word from an  Ambassador of Dreams" which  won the award for the best writer  in the dramatic mode for freelancer Harry Bruce. The play is  an evocative picture of Nova Scotia's Channel shore, weaving past  and present in the words of  Harry's father, novelist and poet  Charles Bruce.

Gibsons Shell wins gas survey  Have you ever wondered where  to get the cheapest gas or who  charges the least to fix that ornery  old clanking in your motor?  We have, so we decided to take  a look at the prices of gas, oil and  mechanics' services from Pender  Harbour to Gibsons. The six  questions on the survey were:  What is the cost of your regular  gas?, What is the cost of your  Premium gas?, What is your  hourly shop rate for mechanic  services?. What is the cost of a  quart of 10-30 oil?, Do you give  complete service even with a one  dollar fill-up? and what is the cost  of a standard oil change and lube  job?  Needless to say there was quite  a variety of answers. Regular gas  went from a low of 83.9 at the  Gibsons Shell Station to 87.9 at  three other locations. Premium,  gas ranged from 95. at Walt's  down to 89.9 at Gibsons Shell.  Mechanics' rates showed even  more disparity, though it must be  remembered that at some stations  there is a flat rate and at others  there is a straight hourly rate. A  higher flat rate can often prove  far cheaper than a pay as you go  lower straight rate. At the Klein-  dale Gulf Service a straight rate of  $12.00 per hour was dearly the  lowest on the peninsula, many  other stations are expecting to go ^  to $18 in the very near future. The  only two stations who stated they  operated on a flat rate basis were  the Sechelt and Gibsons Esso  services. Gibsons refused to release their figure, while Sechelt  Printed Pattern  was only $16 though they were  planning a rise to $18 in the next  few weeks.  The price of a quart of oil varied  from a $1.10 at Gibsons Shell to  $1.40 at Sechelt Esso and Gulf  stations. A lube job and oil  change ranged from $2 not including oil and filter to a high of  $10-$11 all inclusive.  Service varied from "only when  asked" to a "even when no purchase is made."  Below is a list of major service  stations and their answers to the  survey.  Hilltop Chevron - Gfcsons.  Regular - 86.9; Premium - 91.9;  Shop labor - $15; CHI - $1.24; Oil/  lube - $9.50 all inclusive.

Sunday's events, including the  official opening ceremonies, the  war of the hoses, the soap box  derby and the variety show went  off without a hitch but by Monday  morning the weather had  changed and the parade and the  crowning of the May Queen proved a little damp for spectators  and participants alike. In the  grand old tradition of "on with  the show" the committee went  ahead with the rest of the day's  events, cancelling only the  afternoon opening of the Bavarian Beer Gardens.  Congratulations are definitely  in order for Lil Fraser and her  Timberdays committee. The weather provided some very difficult  circumstances which the committee rapidly overcame.  .

Taknbooks ��1974. Paperback,  $4.95  George Ryga is a prominent  Canadian novelist, ' dramatist,  poet and screenwriter. He is the  author of "The Ecstasy of Rita  Joe."  Hungry Hills describes life in  a fictitious small prairie fanning  community in the 1950s. It centres around the characters of Snit  Mandolin and Johnny Swift.  Snit has just returned home following five years absence. He  meets and joins forces with Johnny Swift, his former'friend, and  they set themselves up as bootleggers. The community is an extremely poor one, as a result of  many years of poor weather and  poorer crops. They are suspicious of the sudden affluence exhibited by Snit and Johnny.  This book is the story of the'  tragedy which their lives became,  and the forces which lead them to  this end ��� forces of poverty,  bigotry, parochial attitudes, and  religious zealousness.  Hungry Hills has been highly  acclaimed in Canada, Britain and  the Soviet Union. It was published with assistance from the  Canada Council.  Hungry Hills is available from  , Books and Stationery, Sechelt.  ALETTA GILKER and  Mary Brooke, founders  of the Sunshine Coast  Music and Drama Festival, presented George  Cooper with a plaque  thanking him for his efforts on behalf of the festival last week.  Plants were the first living  things on earth. They have been  outside for millions of years;  now they're moving inside, into  the home.  . People who grow plants love  them. They are like friends or  children, and they don't argue  or talk back. Watching them grow  and thrive is reassuring, plants  give comfort. Why else would  people bring plants to the sick  and infirm?  If I had my way my house  would look like a jungle filled with  every kind of growth imaginable.  I love watching plants sending  forth new sprouts or leaves.  It's like viewing creation, the  wonder of birth.  I 've just been reading the most  marvelous book, Ihe Secret Life  of Plants, by Peter Tompkins and  Christopher Bird. From this book  I've learned that talking to my  plants isn't crazy at all. In fact  it's quite healthy for the plants.  Plants respond to our thoughts  and feelings. When a plant is  hooked up to a polygraph, a lie  detector, its emotional responses  can be recorded. Negative feelings and acts cause plants to  withdraw and whither, while  thinking and acting in positive  ways brings about growth patterns. So you see you can talk to  your philodendron and have it  grow larger and healthier.  Some people seem to have a  black thumb. Everything they  plant dies, when they look at a  plant you can almost see it wilt.  The plants must be picking up  Arts council meeting  Mini-bus meeting June 2  The second annual public meeting of the Mini-bus Operating  Committee will beheld on June 2  at 7:30 p.m. at the Sechelt Senior  Citizens HaU.  Hugh Duff, chairman of the  committee explained last week  that the meeting is being held to  explain the mini-bus to those residents who have questions about  how to use the service or what  services are supplied. Duff added  that the mini-bus has become an  integral part of the Sunshine  Coast communities in the year  and a half it has been operating and that the service is now  here to stay.  The provincial government recently pledged to continue aid to  the mini-bus operation even  though they were cutting back on  general resources board financing.

Members expressed their concern at the meeting over the $100 increase in  rent from the current rate of  $300 they have been asked to pay  for Whitaker House. Motions  were moved to look into the possible use of the lots owned by the  Village of Sechelt across from  Hackett Park and to get an estimate on the cost of moving Whitaker House to. another location.  A motion was also passed to  look into the feasibility of Clarke  Stedner submitting a proposal for  a cultural centre in the Roberts  Creek recreational site.  The members decided to send a  letter to Hayden Killam and Dr.  J. P. Perry, owners of Whitaker  House, explaining the losses the  Arts Council suffered in the past  year and the manner in which  they distributed the funds they  had received from the B.C. Cultural Fund. It was suggested that  Mr. Killam be asked if he would  give Whitaker House to the Arts  Council, as he had stated earlier  Opera  Local resident Ev Vernon took  offoh a trip to Britain last week to  see her daughter Lyn perform on  tour with the English National  Opera Company.

Election of a new board of directors took place at Wednesday  night's meeting. Elected for another two year term are Doris  Crowston and Vivian Chamberlin.  Three new directors were also selected. They are Peter Williams,  Yvette Kent and June Boe.  Valerie Kettle performed three  colorful dances for the entertainment' of the members. Her  first selection, Partner Doll, was  an amazing dance accomplished  with a child size doD for her partner. Valerie is this year's winner  of the annual scholarship of $150.  Jeff Birkin, last year's scholarship winner, favored the council  with several selections on his  trumpet. Debby Middleton was  warmly applauded after she expertly displayed her skill in ballet.  something negative in their personality. If you are one of these  people you had better take a long  look at your attitude, perhaps it  needs some renovation, a transplanting of sorts.  Plants are .marvelous. Sometimes when I really feel low I  go outside and sit in the grass or  smell the flowers or both. It's  great therapy. I come in feeling  happy, full of love and beauty.  Nature is a fulfilling part of life.  Even yard work though physically  tiring can give great pleasure and  peace of mind.  There is such a thing as flower  power. Men have been gaining  ladies' affections for years with  them. A plant or bouquet always  helps a husband to win back an  angry wife.  Besides not being able to survive on this planet, the world  would be an exceptionally drab  place if there were no plants.  Here on the Sunshine Coast we  have an abundance of flora,and  fauna. I'll take the flora inside  and out everytime. Have you told  your favorite plant that you love  it this week? Take a dogwood to  lunch.

KIWANIS CLUB PRESIDENT Mickey Parsey handed  over a cheque for $653.73 to Peter Prescesky, Chairman  of the Sunshine Coast Music and Drama Festival last  week. This cheque completes the transfer of all funds  from the club to the festival who will now be looking after  their own finances.

BOX 883  A charge of speeding on Wharf  Road in Sechelt to Francis Small-  wood of Sechelt, was dismissed  Wednesday in provincial court for  lack of accurate and sufficient evidence. Judge C. I. Walker said  tlie case was a "lawyer's delight"  that some errors had been made  by the constable laying the charge  and there was a possibility that  more had occurred.  Cristal Douglas of Coquitiam  pleaded guilty to a charge of theft  under $200. Miss Douglas was  reported to have stolen a life ring  from the Queen of Langdale as  she disembarked from the ferry  at the Langdale terminal. Judge  Walker gave her a conditional  discharge. Miss Douglas must  keep the . peace and remain  outside the Sechelt Peninsula  area for one year.

Morris Reade has reported that  the construction of single family  dwellings is down to 18 from 24 in  April, 1975. The installation of  mobile homes is also down from  three in May 1975 to two in May  1976. All other figures are similarly declining except the additions and alterations category  which is up to six from four last  year.  Total construction value for  May 1976 is $679,000 compared  to $1,205,000 in April, 1975.  SUNSHINE COAST REGIONAL DISTRICT  Notice of Public Hearing  BY-LAW 96 - LAND USE REGULATION  Pursuant to Section 703 of the Municipal Act, a public hearing will be held  on Monday, June 7, 1976, 7:30 p.m. at the Regional District offices, 1238  Wharf Street, Sechelt, to consider Sunshine Coast Regional District Land  Use Regulation By-law No. 96, 1975. All those who deem their interest in  property to be affected by the by-law shall be afforded an opportunity to be  heard on matters contained in the by-law.  The intent of By-law 96 is to improve and standardize the regulation of  the use of land, including the location and use of buildings, in Electoral  Areas A, B, C, D, E and F of the Regional District. This by-law will replace  Sunshine Coast Regional District Zoning By-law No. 35,1970.  By-law 96 divides the Regional District into residential, commercial,  industrial, rural and public zones, and establishes regulations applicable in  each zone. The metric system of measurement is adopted, with suitable  changes to numerical standards now in By-law 35 pertaining to such matters  as building height, setbacks, and site areas. Lot size will not be regulated  in By-law 96 but will be dealt with in a Subdivision By-law. The policies of  the Islands Trust and the B.C. Land Commission are incorporated in By-law  96. Zone boundaries will be adjusted, where necessary, to remove certain  inconsistencies and non-conforming uses.  Take notice that the above is not deemed to be an interpretation of this  By-law. By-law 96 may be inspected at the Regional District offices, 1238  Wharf Street, Sechelt, during office hours, namely 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Monday to Wednesday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. Thursday and Friday.

He was fined $15 for  being a minor in possession of alcohol.  Brian Glass of Sechelt pleaded  guilty in Provincial Court to being  impaired while driving. Mr. Glass  had a blood alcohol reading of  0.12. The court was told that Mr.  Glass was polite and cooperative  when stopped. He was fined  $250.  A plea of guilty to possession  of marijuana brought a conditional discharge for six months to  Wayne Douglas Kasper Bolen.  Bolen was told not to possess or  be in the company of persons who  use narcotics. Judge Walker said  that as far as he was concerned  this was a once in a life time remedy. A conditional discharge  means no criminal record will be  kept of the incident if the terms  of the discharge are upheld.  Unpaid water bills  The SCRD has accepted a Public Utilities Committee recommendation to amend the present  water rates and regulations bylaw  to impose a 10% penalty on any  unpaid water bills after July 31 of  each year. The recommendation  however will not apply for the current financial year.  Another recommendation adopted at last Thursday night's  meeting called for the Works Superintendent to be given the power to install water meters on properties where there are flagrant  violations of the sprinkling regulations. The board asked that the  superintendent use the utmost  discretion in applying this power  and further agreed that the action  must be approved by the district supervisor.  Plans get approval  Plans for the conversion of  Sechelt Elementary's gymnasium  were presented to school trustees  at Thursday night's meeting by  Vancouver architect George Killick. Killick said no major alterations would be necessary in the  basic structure of the building.  New fire exits are to be added,'  the ceiling will be lowered to  11 feet from its present 18 foot  height, and the stage will become  a multi-purpose area, suitable for  display. Trustees moved that the  Killick sketch plans be submitted  to the department of education.  Killick estimated the modifica  tions to cost about $43,000. He  said, however, that the price  could be modified if it exceeds  budget allotments. ���  School trustees also learned  from Killick that construction of  Sechelt Junior Secondary School  was proceeding at a good pace.  The building would be substantially completed by July 30. Some  difficulties have been discovered  in the installation of the sewage  disposal system, but this is not  expected to create any major  delays.  ���  A bid is currently out to provide  carpeting in the new classrooms.

Canada Week is fast approaching  and Sechelt Village council has  suggested that residents should  soon start planning projects to  celebrate the occasion. The week  begins June 25 and ends July 1.  Some activities proposed by Ottawa- are the organization of social  gatherings, displays and essay  contests around a . Canadian  theme. Further suggestions include: outings, sporting events,  and the wearing of Canadian flag  lapel pins.  It is also hoped that National  Film Board productions will be  shown in the community to get  the public acquainted with the  work of Canadian film makers.  Canada Week is also Fly the  Flag week. Fly the flag from  ^rour residence or business, and  think Canadian.  The Sechelt council hopes that  both children and seniors will begin to make preparations tor the  coming event and make it a great  success. The above are just some  of the many possible ways in  which to celebrate the occasion.  Let's make Canada Week a colorful affair in our communities.  Last Tuesday I came to school  with both hands bandaged. That  is the reason why Elphevents was  not in last week. Let me explain.  On Friday last I was ambling  down the hall as is my wont,- when  I happened on a friend who hap-  . pens to wear this Tyee Airways  hat. He is very attached to it.  Knowing this full well, I foolishly  snatched it off his curly dome.  Amazed that I had actually been  able to reach that high, I stood  there foolishly. Then my friend  kicked at my hand in a halfhearted attempt to dislodge the  cap from said appendage. He succeeded. My hand, not really  harmed yet, went flying, (still  attached to my body) into a locker  door at a precarious angle.  All fine and well. The clinic  said    it    wasn't   broken,   just  Swap  gets  go ahead  Stella Mutch of the Coast Family Society was granted permission by the SCRD to hold a swap  meet on D.L. 1506, next to the  Sunshine Coast Golf and Country  Club, at last Thursday night's  regular board meeting. The swap  meet is scheduled for June 13 and  all proceeds will go towards the  building of an adventure playground on that she.  by D.J. HAUKA  sprained. So I got it bandaged.  Then I had to go to work. My left  hand had to do the work my  right hand wasn't up to. In the  course of the evening, it began to  ache, and when on Sunday we  moved a few dozen TV chassis  at home, it went completely.  Beautiful, I hope you all had a  good laugh, hah, hah. But now I  have to review everything that  has happened while I have been  idle.  Since then we have had an assembly. Mr. Montgomery was  pretty upset about' the walls.  You see we have finally got them  painted (then we only had a base  coat on) and a lot of zeroes went  and put their grubby feet all over  them. '  The problem vanished when we  returned this week to find the  walls around the gym were bright  yellow. The next day, one hall  was green, and the foyer turned  orange overnight. No one dares  go near them.  While we are on the topic of  improvements, (Funny, I had the  distinct impression we were on  the topic of Capricorn, or something like that). The courtyard is  rolling along fine. Yes, the miracles you can accomplish with  Shepherd casters. But no, the  courtyard is looking better everyday. Thanks very much to everyone who donated their plants,  time and shovels, and especially  to Mr. and Mrs. McKown, without whom it wouldn't have been  possible to achieve.  I've said before it's not easy  writing . these columns every  week. It's positively ruinous  sometimes. For instance, look at  Jamie McPhedran ��� she refuses  to say anything in my presence  for fear it will end up in the newspaper. (Well, Jamie, you were  right.)  People seem to love to have  their names in print, but not if  they are being themselves. It's  like Candid Camera.  I would like to take this opportunity to warn you that I shall not  be writing anymore in a couple of  weeks (now, now, don't all of  you sigh with relief). It sounds  like a hurricane. No school) no  column. (Egad washed up already 1)  This Friday we learned that  they will be holding an election  for the student council. Instead of  waiting two months next term for  a council, we wiU have one the  moment we get back in September. (I would also like to announce  at this time, my candidacy for  President. I know you will all vote  for me and usher in a new era of  student inactivity. Thank you I).  Oh, yes, plug your ears, Gibsons. There's going to be another  dance at Elphinstone. This time  it's on June 11, featuring  "Tank." So that's what's b'eefi  happening at Elphie this week|  Exciting, eh? Have a good day.   f,  A charge of speeding against  Benjamin John Birt of Burnaby  was upheld in court. It was reported that Birt was exceeding  the 30 mph speed limit on Reed  Road.  Local resident Ernest H. Johnson pleaded guilty to refusing to  take a breathalyzer test, and was  fined $200. A charge of impaired  driving was stayed by the court.  Few people realize that recent  changes have been made to the  Criminal Code with regards to impaired driving. First offenders  can now be fined a maximum of  $2,000. The amount the convicted  driver must pay depends on the  discretion of the judge. Though  first offenders are usually asked  to pay about $500 the presiding  judge may enforce a much suffer  penalty. Criminal records on the  Sunshine Coast show a great  .number of. convictions for impaired driving.  L  Fruit Cocktail  Pink Salmon  CO-OP  28 oz.
