Array Provincial Library,  Victoria, B. C  '^:&^  ~'%&?��%:  Golf and Country Chib had their 'pet' eagle sabotaged last week  (Continued on Page 2)  An emergency meeting of the Sunshine Coast Concerned  Citizens last Thursday night conditionally approved a proposal  to attempt, rather belatedly, to resurrect this year's Gibsons  Sea Calvalcade. : "  The Calvalcade, originally scheduled for the August 1st long  weekend had died a natural death this spring when no group  of local residents showed any willingness to take on the massive  task ofco-ordinating the two day festivities.  The Concerned Citizens discussed the difficulties involved in  scheduling a full scale Cavalcade  with only thirty days notice but  eventually decided that due to the'  feet that the Miss Sea Cavalcade  contest and the Kinsmen's Beer  Garden were already lined up for  that weekend it was a matter of  meeting the July 31st deadline  or passing up the,Cavalcade for  this season. The concensus of  opinion at the meeting was that if  other organizations and . groups  were willing to throw their weight  behind the project it would be  possible to go ahead with a full  scale Sea Cavalcade within the  four week limit.    .  The committee stressed that  although they are willing to coordinate the entire. Cavalcade,  there is a limit to the amount that  they as one group will be able to  sponsor on their own. Should no  further interest be shown by other  local groups it is still possible that  the Sea Cavalcade win again be  cancelled; 7  The Concerned Citizens themselves are willing to sponsor a  children's sports day, parade,  fireworks display, tennis tournament, car rally and pie throwing  contest. Organizers are still  needed to act as parade marshall  and   to   sponsor   the   towboat  UiUUlU..  ~M  !*������*    *  'Mini-survey'  Rezoning applications reviewed  Regional District Area A representative Jack Paterson informed last Wednesday night's  meeting of the SCRD that immediate action was necessary in order  to correct a situation that has  left the Pender Harbour Secondary School virtually unprotected  in case of fire for the last 18  year's.  Paterson asked the board to  endorse a recommendation that  would allow regional engineering  consultants Dayton and Knight  to make a 'mini-survey' of possible sources to supply the school  with an adequate water supply  for use in fire fighting. Paterson  added'that he was unwilling to.,  see PHSS turn into another 'Elphinstone, situation' and mentioned that it may be possible to  draw the' water from surrounding  creeks. Paterson estimated the  cost of the project between $25 -  $50,000.  Area B representative and Public Utilities Committee Chairman  Peter Hoemberg supported Paterson *s position and admitted  that a Pender Harbour waiter system -study was long past due.  Hoemberg felt that it may be possible to supply the school's needs  at the same time as other major,  water-related problems were  dealt with and other board members added that since the schools  were insured by the government itself, it should be possible  to get provincial assistance on  the project/  The board agreed to approach  Dayton and Knight on the subject  and to await their report before  making further decisions on the  matter.  Rezoning applications involving three sites were discussed  at a public zoning hearing heald  by the Village of Gibsons on  Tuesday. June 29. Twenty-five  people attended the local meeting  at the Gibsons Municipal Hall.  The developers speaking for  Froese Develomcnt put forward  their application for rezoning the  Crucil Rd. - 101 Hwy. area  from  R3#to  CI   for commercial  development. Five commercial  units and 10 apartments are  proposed for the site. The developers stated that because of  the new Department ot Highways policy regarding 1-7 feet  road dedications it has been made  possible to relocate the offending  apartment 7 unit at a further  distance r from the; concerned  property owner. Covered cul-  vcrting and a standard sidewalk  fronting their properyon Hwy 101  was also guaranteed. A petition  with three pages of signatures  was presented. All the signers  favoured the project, however,  a number of people in attendance  at the meeting voiced their objections. Similar objections  had' been raised before when  this project was first put forward.  A decision on this amendment  was postponed until July 19th  Proposed rezoning of the North  Road area from Comprehensive  Development area to R3 was  submitted and the application  will be processed.  ; The application from Wolfe  Land Development for rezoning  from C.D.A. to R3 which would  permit up to a two family residency (duplex) behind the  Medical Clinic was referred for  normal processing as well.  Building permits  Building Inspectors' reports  issued; by both the Village, of  Gibsons and the Village of Sechelt for the period ending June  30, 1976 were released by the vil-  lageoffices fast week.  In "Sechelt the total value of  building permits issued during  the first half of 1976 proved to be  up almost 300% over the same  period 7 in "the previous year,  the total number of building per-  mitshowevertook a less dramatic .  rise <;of approximately 33%.  a single 7 commercial permit for  construction of a $1.4 million  commercial  structure  was   res  ponsible for much of this increase. A trend towards additions  instead of building new structures  is prevalent in both villages  and the regional district.  The situation in Gibsons is  even worse than the slight decline noted in " other centres.  The total value of 1976 building  stands at only $314,000 as opposed to $501,000 in the same  period last year; a drop of nearly  40%. A dramatic rise in the number of permits issued for additions is responsible for 19 of the ���  28 permits issued as compared  with only 4 of the 23 issued by  June of last year.  Al Jamieson owner of Jamieson  Automotive, has. announced that  commencing thte week he will be-  ;come an official sub-dealer for;  the Toyota line of cars; Jamieson  has ��� entered into an agreement  with the North Vancouver based  North Shore Toyota,.Ltd.; and  plans include an all-make parts  department as well - as both a  .new and used car selection. 7;'H  : Jamieson -is well qualified to  meet the requirements of the job,  his twenty-five years in auto!  dealerships and his time as an  assistant service manager at a  number- of large Vancouver  based dealerships guarantee  good reliable Work.  For those local residents  who ride the roads in Toyotas  it means quicker more effcient  service and fewer long- trips  into town.'.  Lions draw  The first draw for the lions  400 club took place on July  2nd. With Joe Kampman and  many other Lions by her side,  Coast News Girl Friday Paula  Sewell drew the winning ticket  for Bill and Suzie Wong of the  Golden City Restaurent. They  are the first to receive $1000  prizes.  Draws will take place every  Friday! for a total of 52 weeks.  There are six $1000 prizes to be  given away and 46 $100 prizes.  The next draw will take place  Friday morning at the Royal  Bank in Gibsons. The first  customer in the bank will make  the'draw.  Lfons club charities in the past  have contributed $5,000 to the  retarded children's class at  Gibsons Elementary and a successful driver's training program  which 130 students attended.  The Lions Club is now looking  for some more worthwhile  projects to sponsor and would '  like to encourage the community  to come forward with suggestions.  races, gambling night, salmon  barbecue, outdoor bingo, bike  races, boom men's sports, flea  market and other events. Tentative plans have been made to.  sponsor the children's water  sports, the war of hoses, sailboat  races and pulp-packing contest.  It is hoped by the committee  that the local merchants will also  jump on the bandwagon and a  contest for the best store promotion is being planned.  The Sunshine Coast Concerned  Citizens committee are looking  for help in almost all areas.  Clubs, organizations, individuals  and businesses are invited to participate as much as possible.  For further ^formation write the  Concerned Citizens at Box 1245,  Gibsons or call Coast News at  886-2622.  S.C. resident cards  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District announced at last Wednesday night's meeting that the  arrangements for distribution  of the new. resident's cards for  use on B.C. Ferries. are how  substantially completed. ���  Secretary AnnePressley reported that following meetings  with B.C. Ferries senior staff  and the staff representatives of  the various local governments the  final details had finally been settled. The staff who will be operating the machines will be given  ah orientation course this week  and it is expected .that the centres will be open to issue cards  by July 12th.  The Sunshine Coast cards will  be issued through three centres at  the Gibsons ICBC office, the Sechelt Municipal office and ' the  Sunshine Coast Regional District  officehfSecht*:-  "���'*     -  All permanent residents of  this area who would normally  have to pay full fare on the ferries  are entitled to a card. In order to  qualify for the card it will be necessary to be on a current voter's list or have a declaration  completed by a resident who is on  the list and can verify-your residency. Appeals against a refusal  to issue the cards can be made to  the local council or the SCRD.  The local governments were air  so advised this week that B.C.  Ferries has agreed to reimburse  the local governments $1.00 for  1 each card issued thereby allowing  the regional district and the councils to issue the cards at no cost  to the local residents. A fee of  $5.00 will be levied however for  cards issued to replace cards  that have been lost. The ferry authority also agreed last week to  extend the period during which  driver's licences will be acceptable in place of resident cards  from the prior August 1st deadline until the beginning of September. The regional district noted that this allowance will  make it much easier for the local governmentstardea! with the  massive job of issuing better than  30,000 resident cards between the  Sunshine Coast, Powell River and  'Bowen Island services. /  ; The cards wul oontain a p���;  , ture of the resident which will be  taken at the time of application.  The first issue of cards will be  good until December 1977 and  thereafter will be valid only for  a period of one year.  The new resident cards will  allow round trip passage from  Langdale to Horseshoe Bay for  eight dollars per car and two  dollars per passenger instead  of ten dollars per car and four  dollars per passenger.  Suspension notice  Various monthly reports have  been submitted to die SCRD summing up the last month's activities of the departments of planning, works and building inspection. ������'.  Regkmalplsnrierf Adrian Stott  has announced that die first draft  of the Sechelt Vicinity Plan is  now substantially complete, and  will be reviewed by the Sechelt  Vicinity Planning Committee before the board meeting. The  amendments made at the third  reading of Bylaw 96 have been incorporated into the bylaw which  is now in Victoria for, cabinet approval.  Building Inspector H. Morris- ���  Reade reports that for the month  of May, areas B and E were the.  most active in building. The total  values for the areas are $455,000  and $453,000 respectively. .The  number of singfe-fam3y dwellings showed a slight increase  this year oyer last. However, the  trend is much the xune,as last  ve*r-  During a visit to Keats Island,  a notice of suspension was pos  ted on two sites. The buildings  under construction to the foundation stage, one oh the Eastbourne  side of the island and one on the  west side, were in violation of Bylaw No. 94, Section 4.1.   Construction  on the  islands  during the first part of the year  appears to> be minimal.  Works SuperintendaotG, Dixon reports that during the period  May 15 - June 15 7,000 feet of six  inch water pipe was laid in the  Welcome Woods subdivision. The  control panel and electrical hookups were also made to the pumphouse. The pumps were tested  and the system has been flushed  and chlorinated and �� operating  well. The last part of June has  been spent hooking people onto  the system although there is reportedly a shortage of fittings.  Miscellaneous works have gone  ahead. A hydrant has been installed at Highway 101 and Bay  Road, in Davis Bay and an-emergency hookup from the Chaster  road well to the Gower Point system has been installed.  inside  Pag* 2 ��� Pet  Page 4 ��� Elphie at  Habitat  Delivered to EVERY address on the Sunshine Coast every Tuesday  -.V.

Your news - your paper  .In any community, particularly small  ones like ours, every business serves  a definite purpose. The same is true of  the community newspaper. It fills a  very specific need - communication.  Your paper has a responsibility to you.  It's function'is to supply you with important information about yourself, information you can't get from television or the  metropolitan dailies.  The Coast News has been performing  that function for Sunshine Coast residents since 1945, and as the needs of  the community have changed, so this  paper has changed, too.  We have recently undergone some  major changes, but one thing remains  the same. That is, our responsibility  to you. We shall continue to publish an  accurate refection of the area in which  we live. That's why you see the return  of the old masthead, or 'flag', of the  Coast News on today's front page. We  see it as symbolic of all the things you  expect from your community newspaper-  all the things the Coast News has faithfully delivered for so many years. But  more than that, it's also symbolic of  permanence, and of the ongoing task  of reporting news. Your news.  Let's show 'em  The Sunshine Coast Concerned Citizens have rescued the Gibsons Sea  Calvalcade from the brink of extinction.  They have offered to supply the central  organizational structure needed to get  the event off the ground and in some  instances have even agreed to sponsor  the events themselves.  However, Sea Calvalcade is still a  long way from being ready to go. The  committee has been left with only thirty  days to handle the mountain of organizational work which goes into an event  such as this. Each event must be sponsored by a group of interested citizens  and so far there are still a number of  categories in doubt.  No/one committee could ever, carry  off such a monstrous task as sponsoring  an entire Sea Calvalcade. The Concerned  Citizens need help from a wide cross-  section of both  businesses  and  local  community orgaizations.  Sea Calvalcade should represent our  feelings about the community we live  in. It should give us an opportunity  to show the rest of the Sunshine Coast  and outside visitors a bit of our way of  life and should provide the local citizens  with a feeling of pride in their community.  and a few days of fun and relaxation.  The Concerned Citizens are challenging you to show your support for Gibsons.  If they fail to get Sea Calvalcade off  the ground it could be many years  before it can be successfully ressurected.  Within the next week or two a member  of the committee may approach you for  a donation of time.ymoney, or technical  knowledge, when they do it will be up to  you to show your support for the village  in which you live and work.  Thirty days isn't much time. Let's  get to work.  Pet Eagle  The proud bird with the wooden tail  isn't quite so proud these days.  The Sunshine Coast Golf and Country  Club's pet eagle, which usually perches  atop their sign in Roberts Creek, apparently ran afoul of local vandals last  week and by the look of him it must have  been quite a fight. As our fron page  picture shows, the king of the skies  is now a little tilted and many hours of  careful work by carver Dick Marsh  have been wasted. It would appear  that the intent of the vandals was to  make off with the captive bird, but since  the original builders of the sign had  the forthought to secure the proud bird  to his perch rather securely, the local  birdnappers apparently gave up the  heist.  Vandalism is becoming all too common  a pastime along this coast. It is time the  RCMP did something to protect this  kind of public property and to ensure  that the perpetrators were held res-  pnsible for their action.  Vandalism is no longer a laughing  matter.

"STQP AND $MP* ���fOACt.   1929,  OPERATED ST  mwi Sound Trading company, j. h# Onmmom0imommm*  Gibsons 1929  Commentary  Happy Birthday Canada - or is it?  Today, July 1, variously known  as Canada Day, Dominion Day,  and Confederation Day,, is, at  least an apt time to take a look  a the state of our nation.  After' 109 years of confederation what do we have to show for  our efforts? Do we have a strong  nation economically bonded into  one cohesive unit? Do we f feel  proud of the label 'Canadian'?  Are we looking forward to another  100 plus years of working^'to-  gether or are we slowly losing  the tenuous bonds which hold  this geographically unfeasible,  double cultured, 3000 square  mile ribbon of. rock and prairie  :; together?        " |f  There are���no simple answersito  these all to encompassing questions. From B.C. it is too easy  to assume that we are supporting  the Maritimes via both economic  aid and unemployment benefits.  That we are bowing under to  Quebec's demands for increased  bilingualism and cultural independence and that Ontario is  depriving us of our rightful,  share of the Canadian manafact-  uring industry. It is also easy to  assume that Alberta is committing highway robbery by demanding increased prices for oil and  natural gas and that the prairie  provinces    are    interested     in  co-operation   with  B.C.,      only ,  when the issues directly effect  their agricultural and dissimilar  resource priorities.  -   The individual Canadian economic units are more and more  beginning to go their own ways.  The   premiers   of   the   various  maritime provinces are working  in  closer   conjunction   and   the  same applies to the prairie region .  Ontario and Quebec have always  held a more' autbmomous view  -of the  Canadian confederation,  . as have B.C. and to a certain  extent    Alberta.    With    seper-  atism slowly gaining popularity  in Quebec,  30% of the voting  public in the last election, where  do the other members of the confederation    partnership    stand,  should   the   separatists   control  the next sitting of the Quebec  legislature?  Is it worthwhile both econom  ically and emotionally tocontinue  to pursue the urea, of permenant  confederation? In order to maintain the union it will be necessary  for B.C. to accept not only the  French culture and language  but also to learn the art of inter-  provincial . co-operation, which  in the past, has been almost  non-existent. French language  radio stations and bilingual air  traffic control must become  a way of life* if we are to continue  with our present view of national  unity.  The alternative to accepting the  dictates of a national government  who, must balance the priorities  of ten provinces and a few thousand square miles of unorganized  territories, is for B.C. to accept  the idea that sooner or later  we will have to face the future  as an independent nation.  Quebec has already reached that  point and will soon be forced  to decide whether they would  rather give up some of their  cultural heritage or go their own  way. Sooner or later the geographic and political differences  will lead B.C. to the same point.  Though our differences may  not be as great, the issues are  no less real.  When the union with the eastern provinces was drafted the  decision was reached more out  of fear that the undeveloped  colony would otherwise be forced  to join the American union than  out of a true spirit of patriotism, or economic benefit. Confederation was necessary in order  to keep B.C. from following in  the footsteps of the-Hudson Bay  Company's Columbia River  Territories. There was considerable debate as to the advisability  of joining the Canadian confederation, some members' were  in favor of joining the American  union. In the end it was only  the offer to build the C.P.R. that  swung us into the partnership  that we are now reluctant to consider leaving.  The Canadian experience is  unique in world history. No  where else has such a geographically and culturally difused area  come as close to forming a truly  workable ��� union. /Separation  is the final alternative;but definitely not something to be considered until all other possibilities  have been exhausted. There is  no reason for instance! why  a still looser confederation  could not work. Is there any real  advantage to imposing bilingualism on a federal intead of a  provincial basis? Is it not possible  to form an alliance for external  politics only?  There is little doubt that over  the next 109 years the fabric of  Canadian unity will change.  The object should be to,insure  that it is a peaceful and amiable  change, not a unilateral action.;  As with any other relationship  it is important that we, allow  each other to grow within the  relationship instead of forcing  each individual area to impose  their own priorities on the nation  as a whole.  There is no reason why B.C.  and Quebec cannot co-exist  in a confederation that allows  them to go their own way.;  The much-touted 'air strike; is  just as much now touted to be  over, and the big companies have  gone back to business more or  less as usual. The various groups  appear to be placated for the  moment, and there are but a  few loose ends to be tied tip,  such as the suing of three commercial pilots for 'refusing to fly'  in the face of a court injunction  forbidding such refusal. The  aftermath of all this is described  variously as responsible airmanship, more political clout for air  traffic control officers, a victory  for bilingualism or as a monstrous sellout, depending upon  whose press releases you choose  to accept or ignore. f  The real losers of course ate  the Canadian people, as we are  more divided than I have ever  observed in my lifetime. TJie  clown prince has swaggered  across the landscape/forcing all  french labels on canned goods in  Newfoundland,' paper woirk  in the Yukon Territories and TV  airways in B.C. This unremitting  expansion of French speaking  politicians, political appointees  and civil service officers is only  the more superficial example  of the prime mininister's bilingual policies in action.  .We must have bilingualism at  all costs, we are told, and we  must have it his way. His cold  calculating way must be pursued  until every bigot is identified by  sweeping definition and is driven  from view. Only then will We  truly have a Canadian unity.      ;  So we, as Canadians, continue  to be divided. The unity and  growth of French culture and  language was proceeding at ah  ordinary and very palpable pace  in the 19S0's and 1960's. French  Nationalism grew under the re- -.  pressive Duplessis forces in the  province ,of Quebec and became  if rather noisily, known and renounced and by graduation,  respected. ;���'���.,  .     These    latest    policies,     the  cramming   down   our   throats,  ^   over the past 8 years, have been  '!;  arrogant,      self-seeking,      self  ��� aggrandising and grossly abrasive.  5 The calculated end is to draw  forth from any issue such as that  presented by the air traffic  controllers,   anything   that   can  < be construed of and slandered  as bigoted. The country is split  in twain���the issues are being  attacked on both sides by spirited  ; bigots. Mistrust must abide over  the land.  Thus skilfully divided by the  self-fulfilling prophecy that  bigots must abound, the people  look for leadership. And the very  leadership of the Machiavellian  man is exactly that ready leadership that will whip you and  lead you to ever more crises and  issues of a similar ilk. There  is no end to it nor can there be.  This vicious systematic exploitation of the oldest play in  political history must be seen for  the malignancy it is, if it is ever  ��� to come to an end.       .  the much to be applauded  effort of MLA Rosemary Brown  to introduce Private Member's  Bill, Bill number 39, a Community Property act, has been  ..'; .buried under points of order  and business more or less' as  usula in the provincial legislature. In 1967, the Royal Commission on the Staus of Women  was tabled in - the house,  rec  ommendation 105 of that report  asked for the concept of equality  of both partners in the marriage. ,  It is nearly 10 years later and that  recommendation has not been  implemented. Should one expect  the provincial legislature to act  any differently?  The Law Reform commission  has asked that the assets ace-  rued after marriage be considered  equal property in the eyes of  the law. This has been put forward with the hope that such  injustice as the Murdoch ys  Murdoch case could not be repeated in B;C. as it happened  in Alberta. And how many of  our readers have not even heard  of the Murdoch vs Murdoch  case? (If inside this office is  any example there must be  quite a few!) This was the case  of the Albertan farm wife, who  after 25 years of marriage and  hard work was awarded a $200  a month settlement and a spoon  which, at the time she was thrown  out of the house by her husband,  she had in her hot little hand.  The details of the case present  an unjust, unfair picture to  the observer but the proceedings  and decisions were all legal.  The Supreme Court of the land  upheld the decision.  According to the courts, if .  a woman if married she is merely  fulfilling her duty as a wife when  she contributes her time, energy  and money to that marriage.  If a woman has not worked  in  a  marriage,   any gifts  she  receives from her husband can  be taken back. Yet, the irony  is that women are led to believe  that the homemaker role is of  such value to society that delinquency and alcoholism would  ensue from its neglect. How  many women spend the last  few years of their lives in poverty after investing many more  years of their youth in their  marriage?  The propossed change to community property laws can be  seen as a step away from the '  current laws of separate property, yet, is it not true that  the community of property  concept more completely and  accurately reflects the way  both partners intend their married life to be structured? The  principal underlying the bill is  that all people are created equal  under the law, now who can argue  with that?W6uld we cut down on  welfare costs by a fair community  of property law or should we  pursue instead the establishment  of a bureau to seek out ,recalcitrant husband as ^outlined  in legislative debate? Maintenance is an ugly word for  the women who have felt that  their work in the home is of  equal value to a marriage as  any outside job. :.  There are still laws on the fed-  eal books that say that this law.  applies except in the case of  choldren, married women and  lunatics. Because what that  law presumes, of course, is that  no woman in her right head would  get married. Yet, many of us do  and nobody does anything about  the law.  No special committees have  been formed, the recommendations of Berger's report and  the private member's bill have  not been taken seriously, v. So .  much for British Columbia. >  Unison  Harbour and heaven meet in one thin line,  And each pervades the other with its hue-  The stars extend their eyes, low, soft, sublime,  And mirrored depths reflect them back anew.  Only the ocean could such scenes reflect;  Only the heavens could such lights provide-  And now they join, and in their twain perfect  A zodiac enwrought within the tide.  Here all the universe its wealth unfolds;  A tapestry that spans the store of years-  Eternity holds,  And weaves, and with the dawning disappears.  FromrPoems and Sonnets  By L.R.

This  would be followed by a refer-  ~ endum, this step being the final  , yea or nay. You can sign the  petition, and please do, but  your vote in the referendum  is what will really count. y  I think that the best part of  the Village Council's offer was  that they would, at no cost to  local users, install a water  " main along Reid Road from North  Road, at least as far as the limits  of the Granthams Landing  Improvement District's service  area (Fisher Road). This would,  by a side line, supply municipal  water to domiciles in 'Upper  Granthams', presently on dry  wells and broken promises.  The GLID could negotiate with  the Municipality later, either  to purchase water from the fore-  mentioned main for use in their  system, or for outright takeover.  In the latter event, the GLID  have much to offer, a useable  fair water line, and some real  estate.  The possibility of pur  chasing water from some municipal supplier, and eliminate  the present pumping method  was occasionally discussed,  when I was on the board of  GLID and its predecessor.  Other proposals from the  Village included sewer, but  that will come later, a main being  proposed along the beach (buried), which would provide service for the waterfron properties  first of all, eliminating the  present septic tanks.  ; Once more, I urge all concerned to sign the Petition,  so at least we can approach  Gibsons Municipality . for the  facts.. That would be followed  by a referendum, yoUr votes  being the final decision.  J.E.WHITE  Granthams Landing  Referendum  . The local newspapers of the  week of April 5th last stated that  the referendum'regarding sewers  was set for May 29th, 1976. At  this time Sechelt Council and all  sewer advisors had prepared  supposedly,' three letters for'  distribution to the residents  on May 12th, 19th and 26th.  Where    are    these    letters?  As everyone understands,  a referendum is the means by  which a question is submitted  to the direct vote of die whole  electorate concerned. The matter  at issue is perfectly simple,  do the people of Sechelt want  This is Your Life  Horoscope for the next week  By TRENT VARRO  Aries -  March 21   to  April  20  A "break for the old" and the  discovery of "something new"  faces all Aries individuals novA  .

TAURUS - April 21 to May 20  There is- a trmendously beneficial aspect going for Taurus  individuals. This will "probably  have a bearing on your work, but  social life and hobbies should not  be left in the background.  GEMINI : May 21 to June 20  A rather poor square aspect right  now is apt to "spur you on" to  greater achievements, when actually you may end up right where  you started. Rest and quiet  should be your aim for the next  week or so.  CANCER - June 21 to July 21  You can be sure of one thing; in  the solar chart of Cancer, everything . is very, very good and  getting better by leaps and  bounds. Even adverse aspects in  your personal chart will be nullified by beneficial gains.  LEO - July 22 to August 21  This is a "waiting period" for  "things to come." Don't be dis-.  couraged if events seem slow.  Remember things usually look  darkest, just before the dawn.  VIRGO - August 22 to Sept. 21  If you watch your nerves, you'll  find that you "have the world by ���  the tail." If your nerves are  bothering you. see your family  doctor.

You can  make a great deal of progress, if  you don't try to rush matters too  fasi.  sewers or not?  This referendum is imperative  if democratic procedures are to  be maintained. It appears now  that both Municipal and Provincial Governments are thrwart-  ing this process. Why? The only  reason surely is that a few  individuals are promoting their  interests at the cost of the tax?  payers' preference and benefits.  Whereas the mill rate is a basic  factor in the sewer development  and will influence the voters  decision, it should not- be the  means by which governments  deny the people a referendum.  There now appears to be land  for the sewage treatment plant.  Surely with the availability and  cost of land as it is on the Peninsula there must be a price-  tag for this free (?) land. What  isit?  The people elected the local  and provincial governments to  represent them honestly, not  subversively. What happened to  honesty?

While visiting Habitat Forum at Jericho  Beach, we became aware of certain world problems which  require immediate attention from all of us. So, when we  returned to the school our class drafted these proposals,  which are our answeres to the above mentioned problems.  If implemented, we feel they would go a long way in  alleviating the situation.  Energy  a) The emphasis placed on the  production of wasteful fission  reactors be shifted to the production of fusion reactors,  which are a more efficient  means of generating power.  b) And that a major international  effort be made to develop  an economically feasible  fusion plant. 7  c) Also, an international commission be created to set rigid  standard   of  safety   for   all  nuclear plants in the world.  d) And to enforce those standards as well as insure the  proper usage of those plants.  e) That major international  research projects be created  so as to develop the use of  synthetic fuels, such as'  methane, etc; as a substitute  for the wasteful use of ever  diminishing sources of fossil  fuels;  f) And solar power, geothermal  power,   etc.   as   acceptable  alternatives to the use of  irreplacable fuels in industry.  g) Feasible forms of mass  transit as acceptable alternatives to private transport-  6Just introduce money...'  Halleluiah, my husband has  quit smoking. It's so nice not to  have to empty ashtrays, and  clean up ashes that land on everything. I'm also glad that when  my spouse awakens in the  morning the first thing that he  does isn't light up a cigarette.  I've been trying for what seems  like forever to get him to quit.  I nagged, that didn't work.  Telling him how bad smoking  was for his health was no good, he  already knew. Nothing I said or  did had any effect, I gave up.  Then a few weeks ago the unexpected happened. Surprise!  Surprise! When I never expected  it he quit smoking.  A friend bet him that he could-  not quit smoking. Now why didn't  I think of that.

I was hired to watch  him, and to make sure that he  doesn't cheat, my husband knows  that he can't put one over on me.'  He's getting a lot of kisses  these days.  In the past he's quit smoking  for a day or two, and become so  irritable that I practically begged  him to start again, but this time  there was a clause in the bet that  said he was to be in good humor.  He's been taking more walks than  usual, and I think that I've noticed some teeth marks on his  tongue, but he has been more  pleasant, this time I can stand  him.  It's hard for me to understand  what smokers go through when  they quit because I've never  smoked or wanted to. I do know  that it is hard physically as well  as mentally from talking to  friends that have quit and things  that I have read.  I really am glad that my dear  mate   has   broken   this   nasty,  unhealthy habit. I feel that he  deserves   a   great   big   cheer.  Hurray honey! You did it and I'm  . proud pf you.  Now what about the rest of  you smokers? Are you going to  continue polluting your lungs?  Do you enjoy waking up in the  morning and hacking for half an  hour?- We have this, beautiful  Sunshine Coast air to breathe  free of city garbage. Are you getting its benefits?

The draw, operated by the  Fisheries Service division of Environment Canada is open to all  sports fishermen who turn is tagged salmon heads to their local  head depot. The fisherman is  then automatically entered in the  draw, which is announced by  CKWX sports announcer Ted  Peck at the end of each month,  and becomes eligible for the  prizes of from SSOto $500.  To enter the draw just bring the  tagged heads to the Fisheries Office at Madeira Park or drop them  into your nearest depot.  Tagged fish can be recognized  by the missing adipose fin (the  small fin just above the tail). The  tag itself is a minute piece of wire  buried in the fish head. The Fisheries Service asks that you bring  in the entire head, please do not  try to remove the wire.  The Fisheries Service is. also  interested in having local fishermen keep a record of their catches. For a free log book and instructions please contact Gerry  Harris at the Services Vancouver  office.  Donald Allen Brown, 17,  was sentenced to 30 days in  jail and a $500 fine in provincial  court last Wednesday. A charge  of dangerous driving in the.  Garden Bay-Pender Harbour  area was upheld by the court.  The police report noted the running of a stop sign, speeds in  excess of 65 miles an hour,  failing to yeild to police siren  or lights and the crossing of  the solid line in the highway  while navigating curves, as  well as a loss of control of the  vehicle while it spun around on  impact with some posts. Judge  C.I. Walker stressed family  contact and responsibility when  he called upon the mother  to imagine the body of her son  and. his companions laying in  a morgue. The 17 years olds  lack of maturity in the operation  of a motor vehicle, the ^ fact  that  the  car  contained  minors  and subsequent speeding tickets  to this event led the court to  apply strict terms of probation.  Jack Uegene Monsell, was  given a fine of $300 for impaired  driving.

Northwest to the Sea is the  story of William McGillivray  and the fur-trading North West  Company. It is the history of  a young man's rise to power,  his struggle to maintain the  company    and    his    eventual,  unwilling 'retirement*. The  biography of Wm. McGillivray  is told in a very human style,  with attention to the details  of his personal life, and yet  it is admirably kept within the  perspective of the history of  Canada and England.  Wm. McGillivray was born in  Scotland in 1764; he came to  Canada at the age of 20 to take  up the position as first 'English'  clerk in the North West Company, owned by his uncle,  Simon McTavish. As clerk,  McGillvray travelled extensively across the country, spending  his first five years as an agent,  purchasing furs. Conditions were  primitive and difficult for a man  unaccustomed to deprivation  and lonliness. As the author  states:  it  was   the  utter  lonliness  of  that    vast,    white    wilderness  that threatened to corrode a  man's soul. At times the temptation to submit to the life  style of an Indian seemed as  easy and painless as resigning  oneself to freezing in a snowbank,  and as inevitable.'  During these years, McGillivray married, 'au facon du nord',  a 14 year old girl, probably  Metis, and they had, two children.  When he left to return to civilization in Montreal, promoted  to 'bourgeois', he left his wife  and children behind. Several  years later he married again,  this time in the traditional mann-  ner.  Following the death of his  uncle, Wm. McGillivray took  over control of the North West  Company, having the position  of a Cheif Director, which position he held for his lifetime.  During these years, he learned  to cope with domestic tradgedies,  lack of support from the British  Parliament, and continuing  tough competition from Hudson's  Bay Company. After years of  struggle, the North West Company succumbed to the pressure  and was taken over by their  larger rival.  Wrn McGillivray 'retired'  at this time, and soon afterward,  at the age of 61, fell 'into a  decline'and died.  The author, Marjorie Wilkins  Campell, has done an admirable job of research on a very  difficult subject. Few papers  about the North West Company  are available today, so she was  forced to peice details together  in a very circuitous manner.  She travelled and' researched  extensively in Canada, the US,  England,   Scotland   and   Spain  Northwest to theSea is very  enjoyable and engrossing reading It is the story of a man's  life, not just his recorded accomplishments. It would make  excellent reading for both the  historian and the casual reader.

On the third Sunday in each July,  the tub does just that, in impressive  numbers, as Nanaimo's 'Great  International Bathtub Race' takes  off from the Hub City's harbour  and tubbers wallow their way  across the Strait of Georgia towards  Vancouver's Kitsilano Beach.  There'll be many a spill enroute  (in last year's race, nearly half  of the 200-odd 'tubbers' took  an unintentional bath in the briny  and had to be hauled up by their  escort vessels to watch the race  from the sidelines). But it all adds  to the laughs, and laughs are the  object of the excercise.  . The zany idea of having a bunch  of nuts try to navigate the 34 miles  (54 kilometres) in 'something  like a bathtub' was the brainchild  of a real estate salesman named  Glen Galloway during the Canadian  Confederation Centennial year  of 1967 - when every city, town,  village and hamlet was scratching  its collective head to try and come  up with something different to call  . attention to itself.  Galloway's boss, Frank Ney,  a man with a real flair for publicity  who has since been several times  mayor of Nanaimo and served one  term in the provincial Legislature,  latched onto the bathtub race with  gusto. By the time he and his committee )soon named "The Loyal  Nanaimo Bathtub Society') had  added embellishments and spread  the word, over 200 bathtubs had  been entered for the event, and  it attracted television, magazine  and newspaper coverage - not only  across Canada, but in the U.S.  and Britain as well.  Before even the first race tkad  been run, it was obvious that the  idea had caught on top well to be  a one time shot. The big spoof,  became an annual event, and  Nanaimo was able, with some justification, to call itself not only the  Hub City of Vancouver Island,  but the Bathtub Capitol of the  World.  All craft must be built around  either genuine metal or porcelain  bathtubs or reasonable facsimiles  (fiberglass or plastic tubs molded  from real 'working bathrubs').  Maximum horsepower of six is  allowed for the outboard powering  of each tub, with motors up to  seven and a half allowable if  'modified' to be within the limit.  Every bathtub must have an  escort vessel of a minimum length  of 14 feet, a  rule which  is the '  chief limiting factor in the number  of entrants. There is always a shortage of power boat operators willing  to get into the act, never a shortage  of bathtub hopefuls. The escort  vessel must keep 'its' tub in sight  at all times, but must not push  or pull it - although it is perfectly  legal (and good bathtub strategy)  for the 'tubber' to ride in the wake  of the escort. Extra fuel (for both  the bathtub and its pilot) may be  carried aboard the escort boat.  However, some of the most successful bathtubbers prefer to run  the race on empty stomachs and  eschew seasick pills as likely to  lead to drowsiness.  Despite world-wide publicity  and entries from as far away as  Sweden, Australia and New Zealand, the Great Bathtub Race itself  remains a striclty amateur sports'  event, with prizes limited to tub  plugs, toilet plungers and other  bathroom related peices of spoofery  Although water of Georgia Strait  are likely to be at their calmest  during July when the race is run,  and tides are of course predictable,  winds and waves can play funny  tricks at times. Thus times for crossing have varied greatly from a  long three hours and 26 minutes  for the first race in 1967 to the  one hour and 49 minute record  Dave Lyle established in 1972.
