Ron  has, six years experience as a printer with  the Coast News and many more years experience in all aspects of commercial  priiftifc.;   %\ �� ,', ]J'\   v'   \  .   Despite what rumors you may hear,  the Sunshine Coast News Is here to stay;  1   'I  '   i    t->  Yes mte for debenture  School Trustees of district  no. 46 voted unanimously Thursday night in favor of by-law  no. 31 authorizing the board  to issue and sell a debenture  of S400,OOO.The debenture  which will be sold to the B.C.  School' Districts, financing Authority and will be payable on May  10, 1996. An interest of 9.04  will be payed peranum.  The board approved the action  of Elphinstone principal D.L.  Mongomery when he allowed  one organizer of the May 16.  ferry demonstration to come  to the; school at the noon hour  and' speak to the students.  The board was replying to letters  received from Mrs. P.J. Murphy  and Mrs. Kathleen Dombrow-  ski who were disturbed with  this action.  Mr. Mongomery stated in  a letter the 'students were  going to.demonstrate regardless  so he thought that some organizer  telling, the students what was  expected of them would be better  than; no   preparation   at   all.'  Superintendent of schools,  John Denly, reported that the  students felt they were an important community group and that  ferry*  increases   would   partic-  . ularly  affect   school  activities.  Trustee      Gaus      Spiekman  commended Mongomery's  action. He said, 'schools are a  preparation for life' and should  have the" right to be involved.  The board members agreed,  howeryer, that schools were .a  place for all points of view to'  be expressed., Trustee Pat  Murphy suggested that schools  should have an open policy  toward all groups who might want  to express their position on certain matters.  in response to a letter from v  the Director of the Coast-Garibaldi Health Unit, W. Bruce  Laing. informing the board no  replacement is planned for a  full time nurse who has recently  retired, trustee Rottluff moved  the board send a lette -  Ministers of Health and Ed-  cation. We need more help,  and not less, she said. John  Denley added that Dr. Laing  and himself would send a letter  of protest to the rnimisters  concerned. He attributed the  loss of a nurse to the government's oresent policy of 15%  cut-backs. Unfortunately, he  said, in our area it occurs as  40%.  Pool postponed  Due to the rising cost of  construction, the Kinsmen at  their last meeting decided to  postpone indefinitely the building of; the proposed swimming  pool complex.  This decision came only after  the Gibsons Kinsmen had done  much: research into the cost  and feasibility of such a complex.  ��� When the project was originally, started the cost of completion .were considerably lower  and;rtnere was both[Provincial  and ^Federal assistance available.  Due; to decreased government  spending, funding is no longer ,  available from these sources.  . Ifvwe were to still receive  the- one-third grant from , the  Provincial governmept, based  on a construction^cost of $600,  0007.this would, leave $400 ,000  to be collected from community  donations.  The costs of operating a swimming pool complex have risen  with the costs of construction  and with the rising cost of living  on the Sunshine Coast; the club  does not feel that tax increases  are j ustified at this time.  The Kinsmen would like to  assure the people in the area  that any monies raised for the  pool will be used for other worthwhile community' projects or  held in trust for future building of the complex if found  feasible.  The Kinsmen would also like  to thank all those who have supported the project to date and  hope that. ,no ill feelings ^will  come of their decision to" refrain from building or continue  fund raising for the cause at this  time. ; :   ���:���'���'  Transport and Communications Minister Jack Davis announced the re-introduction of resident cards and discounts of  50% for passengers and 20% for cars on the Sunshine Coast  and Gulf Islands run at a press conference last Thursday.  The new fare structure will mean a rate of $8.00 per vehicle  and $2.00 per passenger and will become effective as of June  21. The local governments will be issuing a special photographic  identification card to be presented at the toll booth. These cards  will be mandatory after the August 1 deadline but ubtil that  time proof of residence by means of a driver's licence or other  positive I.D. will be required.  Other benefits announced by  Davis last Thursday include the  retention ofthe current commuter  tickets for those who choose to  use them and a change in the age  limit for half price fares from the  present age of 12 up to 14 years of  age. Davis claims that the hew  rate will save the residents better  than a million dollars a year.  Davis' announcement came  after a week of hectic negotiations  and,meetings between the Sunshine: Coast local governments,  the Sunshine Coast Concerned  Citizens and the Minister of Transport and Communications.  After calling off last Sunday's  proposed occupation of the Howe  Sound runs the Sunshine Coast  Concerned Citizens organized a  demonstration for last Tuesday at  the    legislative    buildings     in  Victoria. Davis agreed to meet  with   a   delegation   from    the  committee   consisting    of    Sue  Rhodes,    Don   Pearsell,   Doug  Sewell and accompanied by MLA  Don Lockstead. The committee  informed  Davis   that, unless   a  reasonable decision was reached  by the weekend that they would  have no other alternative but to  go ahead with their scheduled  occupation of the ferries at 9:00  ;,a.nUon Sunday-June 13th. The '  committee - presented the'basic  reasons for the reduction and told  the minister that though they  supported the local government  stand,  that  they were  an, independent group and would not  necessarily accept an offer just  because the local governments  were willing to give in. Davis told  the group that he had been in  conference with Premier Bennett  that morning and. that a decision  had   been   reached  but   Davis  refused to make that decision  public before it went to cabinet  and was discussed with the local  government representatives.  The committee has since  discussed Davis' announcement  and has agreed to call off last  Sunday's occupation. Trie committee is however still not entirely  happy  with  the  announcement  and plans to meet on Thursday, ,  June 17 to discuss their new f  stategy at a public meeting. All .  residents are invited to attend *  and make their views known. The ^  committee has also agreed to ;  become a permenant structure  for the basic purpose of providing  a continous citizen's in-put into .'  the B.C. Ferries operation.  The Mayors of Sechelt, Gibsons -  and Powell River and the. Chairmen ofthe Powell River and Sunshine   Coast   Regional   Boards -  met with Davis at 1:30 p.m. last <  Thursday, just before the   an- I  nouncement and agreed to accept -,  the $8 and $2 figure and to pro- I  vide ' the   necessary   residents <���  cards. The announcement was. a. j  personal   victory  for the   local 4  politicians who have...been after '*<-  Davis to lower the hew rates ���"  for almost a month.  , ��� ':  ;  MLA Don Lockstead reported. I  on Friday that thoughi he con- j  sidered the new rate structure to ������>  be an improvement..on the pre- X,  ��� vious set-up he still considered (  the  increase in both residents  and commercial rates to be < far ��  too high. As transportation critic 7  Lockstead added that he still felt $,  residents rates were necessary for V/  the Vancouver Island population}^  He was also coacerned over the  fact that the local governments  were willing to accept a 100%  increase on the previous rates.  The Sunshine Coast Concerned  Citizens will be drafting up proposals for further action to reduce  the car rate and remove the discrimination against ; 6'5" plus  recreational vehicles.   '���'������;"'���  At last Tuesday's meeting  Davis was informed that the  commuter tickets now available  on the Langdale-Horseshoe Bay  run state that they are good only  from Monday to-Friday. Davis  'denied this allegation biit when  presented with a photocopy of  the commuter ticket admitted that  they do state weekdays only and .  promised that the tickets would  now be available for the entire  week. : v -  SUNSHINE COAST Concerned Citizens gathered at the  legislative buildings last week to protest ferry increases.  Sechelt - 3rd in B.C.  NEW GAZEBO at St. Mary's awaits sunshine and patients.  Volunteers!build hospital gazebo  The construction of the' St.  Mary's Hospital Garden Gazebo  is now complete and only requires  the finishing touch of Ted Gough,  the hospital gardener to enhance'  its surroundings.  The Gazebo is not only a  charming addition to the grounds  but will also serve to give shelter  and pleasure to all patients in  the hospital when taken outside,  including any 'long term little ;  ones''. . .; /'������:  It was found that at times the  existing patio was too hot for  patients, therefore it was decided  to build some form of shelter  and the Gazebo together with  extensive, foliage would -offer  this facility. '.'������  The roof structure is unusual  in that the six trusses are bolted  to form a centre core not requiring a support pillar. The  ! core also allows for roof ventilation and offers an interesting  design.  This addition to the garden  facilities    was    made    possible  .by donations . in memory * of  Charles Brookman and William  Mylroie, and by' the Gibsods  Auxiliary to ST. Mary's Hospital-,  ' together with a number of smaller  ��� donations.      ;  -'^7^:1^;'^^.-'constructed.'by voluntary labour and the hospital  maintenance staff, who also  designed the structure.  The   cedar  logs were made.  available by Dr. Rogers.  Sechelt and Gibsons Elementary schools carried away far  more than their share of the  medals and trophies from last  week's B.C. Elementary School  Track and Field Finals in Rich-.  mond. Sechelt placed third in  the province with a total of  119 points, and 21 medals,  Gibsons with a much smaller  contingent still managed to  come home with 2 gold medals.  The athletes exhibited  excellent team, spirit by. supporting their teammates throughout the tournament and in the  - district finals in Powell River  lastweek. Though both schools  are much smaller and have less  facililities than the Vancouver  teams they still managed to hold  theirpwn.  The group of thirty students  from Sechelt Elementary would  especially like to thank the  Lions Club and the Indian Band  for their generous financial  support.  The.final result for the six  Gibsons students who attended  the meet were:  Joey Unger: 100 metre, 1st.  (Gold MedaD.discus, 1st, (gold  Medal), 400 metre, 14th, Shot  Put.lOth.  Sheree Wolansky: 1500 metre,  4th.        ���  The other participants were -  David Douglas (Langdale Elem-  entaty), Hanna Jonas, Mary  Youdell and Danielle /dolinsky.  The SeChelt contingent consisted fo thirty students who  took home medals in the following events:     ;���.'.���  Sprint Medly Relay - Gold  Medal won by Darcy Young,  Sabina Craigan, Artie Stock well,  and Marlena Hall in 6:57:02  a new B.C. record.  4 x 100 relay - Silver Medals.  Shot Put ��� Silver Medal won by  Arlie Stockwell.  1500 metres - Bronze Medal  won by Darcy Young.  Tyke Boys:  Discus - Brian Anderson won  Silver Medal.  80 metre hurdles - Lyle Hall  won bronze medal. ��  ' At the previous week's meet  in Powell River Darcy Young  broke the previous meet record  in the 1500 metre and Kelly  Fairwell broke the discus record.  Tyler Parish won the boy's  aggregate trophy.  MLA Don Lockstead has  applied on behalf of Peninsula  Recycling for a grant from the  Pollution Control Branch to help  finance the organization for the  next six months. The group  has recently received support  from the SCRD and the Village  of Gibsons and Sechelt which will  supply $644 of, the $1,644 per  month budget for the group. It  is hoped that the Dep't of the  Enviroment will supply $500  of the remaining $1,000 needed to  complete      the      organizations  financing. The other $500 will  be supplied by private groups  and organizations.  Lockstead is hopeful that the  provincial government will come  up with their share of the budget  and plans to submit the application to a number of other  departments if the Department  of the Enviroment refuses to  take action  peninsula Recycling is continuing to operate though at  this , time they are critically  short of funds.

After nearly five weeks of protests,  demonstrations,   threats   and   coercion  Transport and Communications  Minis-  ter Jack Davis has finally backed down  and accepted the inevitable.  The ��� Minister should be congratulated for finally seeing the light of day,  but at the same time we must remember  that had he taken a few hours of his  precious time to seriously look at the  implications of his decisions before  making the original announcement  it would have saved ill feeling on all  sides  The majority of the Sunshine Coast  residents are now happy with the in-  reases. Nobody is denying that they  wouldn't like to see them lower, but  all the same, most people appear to  feel that an increase was necessary  and that the present rate structure is  fair.  After all a fee of $8.00 per vehicle and  $2.00 per passenger is hardly ridiculous when a charge of $6.00 per car and  $2.00 per passenger was levied in 1953  when there was no resident rate in  force.  There is little doubt that sooner or  later an alternative must be found. If  things continue as they are,we are in  for this kind of a battle every few years.  The cost of building a road or bridge  to the mainland may seem completely beyond our means but neither can  we afford to be  permenantly   at  the  mercy of the B.C. Ferries organization.  Each year the costs of these alternative  services are rising, if the initiative  is not taken very soon we may indeed  find that we are unable to afford such  a project and that due to the inflatory  factors the cost of ferry service has again  doubled or tripled.  However.before any organized effort  could be made to force the government  into building a road from Squamish  to Port Mellon we would first have to  deal with the considerable local opposition to the idea. Ironically enough  it is often the same people who are unwilling to have the road who are the first  to oppose any increase in the resident  fares. Their argument, that they want to  keep the area from being over-run,  unfortunately does not make sense.  The cost of keeping this area to themselves will eventually mean that they too  will be unable to afford their own way  of life.  The new fares may have given the  residents a brief reprieve, but economically the worst is yet to come. The  summer tourist dollar has been drastically affected and higher unemployment  will be the result.  The time for a united effort to find  an alterative to being at the mercy of  the B.C. Ferries management, is now.  The alternative is to accept that some  day this area willl be available only to  therich.  One down...  Peninsula Recycling has passed the  first set of hurdles and now has a promise  of interm financing from both the Sunshine Coast Regional District and the  Villages of Gibsons and Sechelt. Their  next job is to try and convince the Prov-  cial Government to pick up the other  half of the bill. Considering how popular  the Sunshine Coast is in Victoria right  now, they may be in for quite a battle.  MLA Don Lockstead has taken on the  responsibility of trying to steer the  budget through the labyrinths of the  Socred    government   and    is    hopeful  that the Department of the Enviroment  might pick up the tab.  If the recent petition with 1673 signatures is any indication of the home-  ground support for the recycling operation, Enviroment Minister Jim  Nielson had better think long and hard  before rejecting the proposal out-of-'  hand. The Socreds are being given  the chance to win back a few of the  brownie points they tost over the ferries  for only $500. a month.  Recycling is bargain for this 'dollars  before    people    Socred    government.  Pool problems  Provincial government cut-backs  have once again hit home. This time  by way of cancellation of the proposed  Kinsmen swimming pool.  When the project was first started  up to one-third of the construction  costs were to be met by the Provincial  government. Now, due to budgetary ���  cut-backs, local residents are once  again being forced to use facilities  on the lower mainland.  $600,000 is a lot of money for one  community to raise on it's own. Our  taxes have helped to build swimming  pools, skating rinks and other recreational facilities throughout the province  The Kinsmen may feel that it is impossible for the community to afford  the project at this time, unfortunately  as with many other services, it will be  more expensive tomorrow.  A lot of work has gone into the project  already. Let's not give up the chance.  ������������H  FIVE YEARS AGO  Construction Aggregates gravel application in Sechelt area  is turned down by. the Regional  District Board.  Capt.

Pacific Stage Line's application for bus service on the Sunshine Coast draws local opposition.  by JAMIE IVES  I 'm really tempted just to see the look on his face when he pulls me in  Commentary  Socreds ��� "an elitist gov't  99  A bad bout of sanity has let itself loose amongst the honorable  Socred members of our legislative  assembly. The announcement last  Thursday afternoon that a rate of  $8 per car and $2 per passenger  would become effective June 21,  if not perfect, at least proves that  with enough effort it is possible to  get Victoria to use some common  sense.  Davis' announcement goes a  long way towards meeting the demands of residents of this coast.  In return, last Sunday's proposed  demonstration was cancelled and  the fight to correct the remaining  discrepancies in the fare structure can now move to a more conventional political forum. The  Sunshine Coast Concerned Citizens may have called off the proposed occupation of the ferries  last Sunday but that doesn't mean  they are through. Plans are  underway to .. restructure the  group and carry on as a permanent organization designed to keep  a continuous input into the B.C.  Ferries organization, as represen-  ' tatives of the Sunshine Coast residents. Top priorities are a further  reduction ofthe auto rate and recreational vehicle fare schedules.  A public meeting next Thursday  night at 8:00 p.m. at the Gibsons  Legion Hall will present the public with the committee's latest  recommendations. ���.  During the last few months the  new government in Victoria has  appeared to have it in for the people of the Sunshine Coast. First,  we had to fight to keep an ambulance in Halfmoon Bay, then we  had to turn around.and fight off  higher ferry fares. In the meantime our regional board and councils have been finding it increasingly more difficult to deal with  their provincial counterparts. The  ��� amazing part of the situation is  that more often than not we are  winning the battle. A decision  from Victoria is about as definite  as a sunny day in November. I  can respect the government's attitude in allowing their decisions  to be swayed by the democratic  process, but perhaps it would be  better for all concerned if they did  their homework before announcing their proposals, instead of letting the delegations come to  ventilate their frustrations do the  work for them.  Davis realized almost three  weeks ago that his initial decision .  was so full of holes that it could  never be accepted by those members ofthe public who use the service on a regular basis. The problem was that he had already authorized the printing of a stack of  commuter tickets and was unwilling to give in until he had discovered whether or not this "big-  hearted" concession would calm  the rumblings. At last Thursday's  meeting with the Concerned Citizens, Davis was concerned about  looking like he was "acting under  pressure" and informed the delegation that he wasn't afraid of  their threats. To back up this  claim to courage he told the three  delegates that he had fired 5,000  fishermen and hadn't been afraid  of them, so why should he worry  about some group who wanted to  occupy the ferries? The strange  part of it was that he sounded  very proud of this action.  jack Davis and Co. are instituting a new kind of politics into  the already over dramatic B.C.  scene. They are setting quite a  few dangerous precedents in the  process which they mayyet live to  regret. It is becoming all too clear  that if you want something out of *  this government all you have to  do is shout loud enoungh for them  to be unable to ignore you, ICBC  notwithstanding. The reason it is  so easy to get around them is that  they have failed to properly consider all the ramifications of their  actions. Give them enough logic,  threats and a way to look like  they are a bunch of good guys  who are just trying to be nice and  you've got it made. With ICBC  the problem was simple; the protestors refused to give them  enough room to ''save face" so  they had to take a hard line.  I am beginning to believe that  stupidity and not outright economic greed is the prime factor be  hind the collision course that the  people of this province and their  provincial government are travelling. It is ill thoughtjout .statements like the one about senior  citizens "joyriding" on the ferries  that are causing the trouble.  Victoria is rapidly proving that it  is an elitist government that is too  far away from the people they are  supposed to serve. Davis may actually believe that senior citizens  might,"joy-ride" on the ferries,  probably because if has been so  long since he last associated with  us mortals who must use the service that he is responsible for  operating.  It was further pointed out to the  minister at last Tuesday's meeting that the commuter -tickets  were good only from Monday to  Friday. Davis denied this was  true. Yours truly informed him it  was true and Davis again denied  it was true. He was finally convinced of the fact only when presented with a photocopy of a commuter ticket that stated quite  clearly that weekend travel was  not allowed.  The minister in charge of B.C.  , Ferries had quite obviously never  seen a copy of the commuter  tickets his department had issued  under his name.  If Davis is worried about someone abusing the new resident  card system I would suggest that  perhaps this time he should take  the time to see what he is getting  into.  nnnnwHwnwqBBHBBHB)000twK>0ff0oa,  A SPECIAL THANK YOU!

During her introductory remarks  the crowd seems to be more interested in microphone problems.  Dr. Mead informs her audience  that "few cities meet the requirements of their residents." The  construction of new housing developments she adds, is "done  by one set of people for another  set of people." Mead's desire is  to see each town and each community as a microcosm of the  world as a whole. A place where  people are born, learn, mature,  marry, participate in civic decisions, and learn what it is to be  part of a community. A true community she continues contains  "people of all ages and occupa  tions, many races, gifted people  who have drawn on all the best  their culture could give them and  handicapped, lacking^ sight or  hearing or freedom of movement.  The closer each settlement comes  to fulfilling these necessary tasks,  the more it will be a community  of humankind on the planet  earth."

Everybody knows that Ronald Reagan  used show business to get into  politics but could politicians start ���  using politics as a stepping stone  to a career in show business.  Imagine in Mayor Labonte insisted on singing renditions of  "Alouette" at civic functions  while the council joined in on the  chorus. Or, if John. McNevin  directed his talents at SCRD  meetings from the political arena  to the legitimate theatre and began quoting Shakespeare during  the third reading of by-laws. Just  think of the consequences if  Mayor Nelson decided to liven up  official openings with snappy one  liners. Let's keep politics sacred  and free from such offensive intrusions.  ���       ���       ���  Nonesuch:  One  Coast  News  staffer wants to know who does  the talking when a barber gets his  haircut?

We lost our little maltese  terrier today because of two wild  starving dogs. Both of them  aisatians, one light and one black  and brown. Our maltese was  killed by these two dogs on his  own property and I am warning  the owner of these dogs that  if their pets ever come around our  property again they will be killed  and I mean killed. Our little  'Tiny' was a friend to everybody,  he loved children and grown  ups alike and in return was loved  by all.  I'm giving the owners of these  mad dogs fair warning, if one of  these days their dogs are missing,  don't bother going to the vet  or dog pound.  The dog pound, which is not yet  in   existence    has    now   been  bandied around for some months  and nothing so far has been done  about it. What are we waiting for,  a child to be torn apart, an older  person to be maimed or what?  I'm  saying I  will  kill  these  dogs and I  mean  every  word  of it. If your killer dog is missing  go up to the municipal  dump  because that's where it, will be.  Any large dog that comes onto  our property will be killed. Our  'little Tiny' is dead due to some  freak who lets these dogs run  loose.   I  intend  to  find  them,  they   are   living   on   borrowed  time right now and I hope and  pray that they will not get a  little child before I get them.  1 have a good idea of their  location, so if you wake up some  morning and find your killer  dog missing don't bother looking  for it.  This warning does not apply  to people who have small pets  as they are no trouble at all and  are well cared for. Only large  dogs running loose and not  licensed will be affected.  This   is   my   final   warning.  I will be looking out for these  dogs and when I find them they  will be dead.  JIM & KAY HOLT,  Gibsons  CONCERNED  Editor: As a resident of the Sechelt Peninsula for a number of  years I am strongly against the  large increase in the ferry fares to  the Sunshine Coast area, but I  also cannot understand the reason behind the vast cutback made  to this area's ambulance service.  One has to think that to the Social  Credit government money is far  more important than human suffering,  hardship  or  even  life.  This service has been operating  for the past few years, with four  dedicated fully trained and qualified personnel, at one of the lowest costs per unit to the taxpayer  in B.C. Now there are going to be  cutbacks.  The transferring of two of the  service's personnel, who have  been trained at the taxpayer's expense, and who have shown their  dedication to this humanitarian  service by the number of long  and unselfish hours they have  worked in the past, will now be  supplemented by untrained, part-  time people at the same cost, thus  less efficiency and meaning more  NORTHWEST TRAVEL LTD.

Sir, if this government is for the hard working  people in all walks of life, in this  fine province of Canada, I, and  many other concerned people in  this tourist travelled area feel that  at least a few moments of the  premier's valuable time should be  spent on this vital matter.  ���JAMES W.

In the Sechelt Area call on our Representative  CLARK MILLER - 885-2923  The affordable  homeland  1A plan to make owning a  home possible for  more people.  This one's for you. It's called A^OP <^W  Assisted Home Ownership Program^ a***! It  combines the federal assistance pfoVide^tty  CMHC (Central Mortgage and Hou^ift^ CW*}.  ration) with additional assistance fr<?m the '-Q,  Government.  Very simply, here's how it worKs:  If you're a two-person household %nd ��*arf\t  to buy or build a house, and the price is wM^ti  the established AHOP price limits for the ^re^,  you can qualify for the CMHC Interest Re��W>!  tion Loan. This loan acts to r^uce th*e  mortgage rate to 8%, and is interest-fr^e fo^^e  support period.  That's only the first part. The geOwid Ia^t  is a CMHC subsidy of up to $750 for the ^t  year. You're eligible if you've applied fbfT thje  maximum Interest Reduction Loaft haV* ^t  least one dependent child; and even \yitr> ^  loan, your monthly payments exceed- 25^-^f  your income.  Now here's the extra bonus fro^ tfa,.jr'  you've qualified for the above CMHC sub9'^,  and your monthly payments are still.n\9re th^tj  30% of your income, you qualify for an ^*ti^  tional subsidy of up to $750.  Add it all up, and it means tha* Ae {f��sai  bility of home ownership is greatly e^teP^i,  and now includes families in B.C. with inc^m^s  below $10,000 a year.  3 ^\ plan to encourage more  efficient use of land for  affordable housing.  Tys one's for the municipalities. And you.  ^ail ."Xay keriefit from the resulting reduced  ^i^f^pal tastes and/or increased services.. It's  Vll^ Mtf*p (Municipal Incentive Grant Pro-  ^raf1^ and it's designed to encourage the de-  VlcP^etf^of affprdable housing and the more  'HffiCi^t��se<>fland.-  .Tjiere are two grants available to  ^r*Mpa|itie8 and regional districts. The first  % a *1,000 grant from CMHC. The second is a  ^��O0S>a��t from us. That means the total grant  ..&* eli$it)le unit is $1,500. To be eligible, the  ^fop1*8^! homing units must be constructed for  ^rf*1?^** residency, be connected to' munici-  ^0j P'ked water and sewage systems, and be  ^/ed yvith toads having at least gravel sur-  Mi'ese a*e the basic qualifications. There  V�� ��.^ers th^t apply to density, size and value  ^eq^r^ments. What they all add up to for you is  ^ro^'^g communities w**h more affordable  ^OU^jf tfor "lore 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 available from 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.

When I was little I  used to wish that I could be like  Snow White and have all the wild  creatures come up to me. I used  to sit outside feeling and looking kind, waiting for a bird to  perch on my shoulder, but all I  ever attracted was mosquitoes.  Once a bird splatted on my shoul-  . der when I wasn't even trying to  attract any.  Mister is really going to have to  win back my love and affection.  I've been hurt deeply. I could forgive another dog, but biting the  hand that feeds you, mat's too  much!  He does look cute lying under  the dresser looking up at me with  those pitiful brown eyes. How can  I stay mad at such an adorable  pup.  His little heart is probably  broken by my rejection. It really  is silly to punish him by ignoring  him like this. I don't want my pet  fuUof complexes. "HereMister, I  forgive you." Here he comes,  he's letting me pat his furry little  head, and he's wagging his tail.

The district of Ram is inhabited only by scattered farms, and  in August the green hills form a  contrast with the brown stubble of  the grainfields in the valleys  between after the harvest has  been brought in.  Few tourists ever venture into  this remote countryside where  time has stood still. Had they  done so this year, great would  have been their astonishment to  fing Ram invaded by what looked  like three armies ��� Russian  and Austrian 'troops dressed for  battle as they would have been  two centuries ago, and very contemporary men and machines and  trucks organizing them.  Here Italian film director Enzo  G. Castellari brought his film unit  of the spectacular comic adventure film, "Ihe Loves and Times  of Scanunoucfae," starring Michael Sarrazin and Ursula An-  dress, and 3,000 soldiers and  1,000 horses, to stage a climactic  cannon battle between the Aus-  trians, encamped on one hill and  the Russians, lined up on an opposing one.  Months of preparation went  into the scene, which took 10 days  to capture on film and promises  to be one of the comic highlights  of the Avco Embassy Pictures release, playing Sunday, Monday  and Tuesday, June 20, 21 and 22,  at the Twilight Theatre.  The time is 1795 and Napoleon  Bonaparte, an ambitious young  general of the new French Republic, is invading Italy. The Aus-  trians and the Russians are his  allies, come to join with him in  Lombardy, But Napoleon's grandiose plans are all but wrecked,  innocently enough, by a roguish  adventurer, Scaramouche, pressed unwillingly along with his sidekick Whistle,.a Paris barber, into  the Italian Expeditionary Forces.  It is a colorful scene. The Aus-  trians are bivouaced on a hilltop  around a wooden watch tower  which flies the red and white  flag of the Hapsburg monarchy.  Cannons,  balls of ammunition,  supply wagons, tents, grazing  horses, soldiers in vivid uniforms  at rest, officers in powdered wigs  and brocaded coats poring over  charts, until a general with a spyglass gives the alarm to a straw-  : thatched bugler.  Opposing them are the Cossacks, also under a wooden watch  tower, red-coated, wearing fur  busbys, fiercely mustachioed. A  Cossack general carries a white  poodle in his arms, giving it an  occasional sip from his bottle of  champagne, until, caught off  guard by the sight of the Austrian  patrol advancing, he gives the fire'  signal to a drummer. Then follows the furious bursts of cannon  crossfire, with Scaramouche and  Whistle caught in between.  For weeks before Castellari's  cameras turned, organizers from  Yugoslavia's Jadran Film Studios  were in the districts, lining up extras from among the villagers and  farmers, and enlisting their  horses. With harvest done, the  extra pay to play soldiers was welcome in this impoverished area.  Arrangements had also to be  made for the film troupe of some  100 persons to be billeted in private homes and for meals to be  prepared for them.  "The Loves and Times of Scaramouche" is a Federico Aicardi  production, in Telecolor.  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *^^^****^^:^^j}c**^>}c*^^^*:{^?j=*****^.

Clarke, Irwin and Co. Ltd.  791 St. Clair Ave. W. Toronto,  Ontario. ��1975  The McMichael Collection is  situated in Kleinburg, Ontario.  It was begun by Robert and  Signe McMichael as a personal  collection of paintings by Canadian artists and gradually  developed into a major Canadian  Museum. Initially the Mc-  Michael's displayed their paintings on the walls of their log  home on ten acres near Kleinburg, where they were enjoyed  by friends and neighbours.  As the collection grew, the Mc-  Michaels began to plan a gallery  which they would donate to the  people of Canada. In 1962 they  aquired the shack in which  Tom Thompson lived and painted  in his latter years. Additions  to the original log house were  made in 1963 and 1965, specifically   for   display   purposes.  By 1964 the number of annual  visitors had grown to thousands  and as a result, in 1965, the  McMichael's arranged to donate  the paintings, buildings and  land to the Province of Ontario.  Although the majority of the.  works in the collection belonged  originally   to   the   McMichaels,  many   philanthropic   Canadians  GIBSONS  Building Supplies  886-2642 or 886-7833  ROUTER  #7611  Complete     $  with case  71.95  VARIABLE  SPEED  JIGSAW  #7560  H3.95  Circular  Saws  BLACK  & DECKER  7Va" ��� #7301      BLACK  $3A QS     & DECKER  vJTW*'        8"���#3038  BLACK $140  & DECKER $70 OK  7V4"��� #7340     /J'%Js'  BLACK & DECKER  V2" Chuck Drill #7250  $  47.95  BLACK & DECKER  3^ Chuck, variable  speed drill  *��� $29.95  Don't forget Dad  on June 20  also donated a great many  valuable works by Canadian  artists.

In addition to paintings,  the gallery houses Indian ceremonial masks and totem poles  and magnifkaht works by Eskimo  artists.  A Heritage of Canadian Art  is a photographic introduction  to the Canadiana on display in  the museum. It has in excess of  a thousand black and white,  photograhs and 126 full color  photographs, representing all  areas of the collection. Each  section is described by an expert,  and has a brief biography of  the artist.

Last spring a wagon train  headed west from Toronto  with a new wave of homesteaders hoping to settle in the west.  Many difficulties dampened the  enthusiasm and thinned the  ranks. At the turn of the century  there was nothing to go back  to,Europe was crowded and  hungry and the Homestead  Act promised 160 acres of prairie  dirt to almost anyone who could  find $10.00 and his way west.  Saskatchewan wasn't yet a  province,the western prairies  seemed to stretch forever,  ��� broken only by poplar bluffs,  - winding rivers and bright ribbons  ��� of newly laid CPR steel.  On Between    Ourselves, Friday  8:03 pm, 'oldtimers' create a  vivid portrait of life on what was  then the western frontier, the  Riel rebellion just over, and  guns still at Batoche. Life was  a gruelling test of their self-  reliance, contending with sub  zero winters, the family shelter  usually a sod hut, smaller than  most living rooms. Schools,  doctors, stores miles away,  but they remember the good  times as well as the hard ones,  the family pride.grass roots  religion, the strength of character  and individuality to those who  survived, and eventually prospered.
