"Ferries income and expenditure statements for the 1972  to 1975 period were finally supplied to Gibsons Village Council  last week after 'only a dozen or  so requests' according to Village  Clerk Jack Copland.

Inlet run  in the 1972:73 fiscal year. By  the time the figures were compiled for the 1973-74 fiscal year  however, the Howe Sound-  Jervis Inlet run had increased it's  loss to $1,179 million or better  than 11 % of the total fleet loss.  The last fiscal, year for which  accurate records were made a-;  vailable, the 1974-75 year, shows  an increased loss for the Sunshine Coast runs to $3,103 million  and a further rise in the percentage of the fleet loss to about  12V4%.  In the same period the Horseshoe Bay-Nanaimo run increased  it's loss from only $504,000 to  better than $6.5 million, per  annum. All other runs showed  similar increases though none  were quite as dramatic as the  Nanaimo - Horseshoe Bay situation. '��� 7 . / .  Over the same three-year period revenue incresed from $3.2  million to better than $4.1 million  on the Sunshine Coast runs and  better than $32 minion to over.  $43 million for the entire fleet.  Terminal costs for Horseshoe  Bay, Langdale, Earl's Cove and  Saltery Bay rose from $550,000  in 72-73 to nearly a million in  74-75. Vessel :.'���operating costs  and catering losses "stayed fairly  constant after7 allowing for inflationary   factors   during   the  three year period.  The largest single (actor responsible for the; increased  losses is represented by the salaries and wages section of the  expenditure statement. Total  wages for the Sunshine Coast  run rose from $1.6 million in  72-72 to $2.2 million in 73-74  and then jumped a further 50%  to almost $3.3 million in the 74-75  fiscal year. Total fleet wages'  were: $16.8 million in 72-73,  $22.4 million in 73-74, $30.5  million in 74-75, an increase of  almost 100% in a three year  period.  Capital appropriations for the  same period totalled over $22.5  million.  A public information meeting held by Sechelt Village Council  in order to advise the general public of the current situation  in respect to the Sechelt sewer system was held last Tuesday  night at the OAP HaU.  Alderman Morgan Thompson opened the meeting by announcing that an alternate she for the treatment plant has been  donated by Sechelt developer Stan James and thai the engineers preliminary study has indicated that the site is at least as  good as the original waterfront location .The site offered by  the Seaside Village development is in the middle of the Hydro  right-of-way, local residents were relieved to hear that the plant  wall be suitably landscaped.  Thompson told the 'public  information meeting' that the  council is currently waiting for  the funding by-law to be ap-  roved by Victoria and stated that  he could forsee no problems as  the initial $1.5 million estimate  had allowed for a considerable  inflation cushion.  Thompson     then     launched  into the announcement that the  proposed  referendum  may  not  be   held   as   the   village   fee-  that there is not sufficient time,  Victoria has recently informed the  council  that  no referendum  is  necessary   for   village   projects  which are budgeted at under two  mills of taxation,, as the sewer  project is well under that limit  council     is     now    considering  abandoning     the     referendum  which had earlier been promised.  The  sewer, committee stressed  that sewers are a natural outcome of increased density and  suggested that it is quite possible  that the Pollution Control Board  may  soon   demand these   facilities in a village the size  of  Sechelt. The committee pointed  out that it makes mote sense to  install   a   single  sewer  system  than  to gr^uaUy.^assemble   a^  "system' pii^^b^r:1pi��^^'HWas'������  originally suggested-and asked  the community to try to think in  terms of a larger commuity base.  It was also suggested that unless'  the village quickly takes advantage of the current situation it  is quite possible that the present  80%    federal    and    provincial  funding may soon disapear.  In response to a query from a  member   of  the  audience   the .  council stated that they could see  no possibility of tertiary treat- .  ment being necessary in the near  future.  A statement by Alderman  Dennis Shuttleworth who was  unable to attend the meeting  due to his annual holidays was  read by Mayor Harold Nelson.  In the statement, Shuttleworth  stated that he felt it was in the  Jleiry fare feedback  Former NDP Finance Minister  Dave. Stupich claimed last week  that the sharp reductions in B.C.  Ferry traffic last month proves  conclusively that the ferries  would have been better off to  institute only a 20% rise in fares.  Stupich stated that the 'government's own figures reveal  that the coalition cabinet had  bungled badly, again with tragic  consequences. for thousands of  British Columbians, just as it  ' did with Autoplan premiums.'  Stupich felt that the whole provincial economy had been severly  weakened by the increases and  that the results of the June figures indicate an annual revenue  of only $60 million, an increase  of only 20% for a 100% rise in  fares. ' '    .  Local MLA Don Lockstead also  echoed . Stupich's claims last  week and added that he was extremely concerned about the  effects on the local tourist industry. Lockstead's discussions  with local hotel industry have indicated that a crisis situation is  rapidly developing.  The opposition members  have agreed to keep pressuring  the.Socred government for a roll  back of the fares but at this time  feel there is little likihood of  the minister capitulating to their  demands.  John Hoff, manager of Madeira  Marina at Pender Harbour, estimated that his business for June  and July is down approximately  40%. Hoff feels that the American tourists and the week or  longer holidayers are still coming  at about the usual pace and sees  the drop as being almost completely in the weekend Vancouver  resident traffic.  Fisherman's Resort . owner  Jo Benjafeild agreed that business was down but set the figure  at more like 50% for June and  July. She figures the government  should point out that the/ fare  is for a return voyage at the  Horseshoe Bay terminal and that  part of the provincial $100,000  for advertising the Vancouver  Island tourist trade should now,  be allocated to the Sunshine  Coast. Mrs. Benjafeild added that *  she had experienced a more  severe drop in local travel but  added that she still felt there had  been a severe drop in both American and out-of-province tourist  travel.  best interests of the village for  the referendum to be held  and added that by having a referendum many errors and questionings of honesty may be  avoided. He urged the village to .  follow 'the honest way* and not  to take the 'simple solution.'  Thompson, in response to a  question from the gathering  admitted that the council was  split 4 to 1 against the referendum.  Other questions regarding the  cost of the system were shunted  aside by the council who felt that  they had spent three hours explaining the situation at a public  meeting last January and that  there was no need to again go  into the detailed cost and expenditures. Thompson promised the,  crowd that the cost would be  under 2 mills or about $89 for  a 50 foot lot. 20% of the total  1.5 million cost will be borne  by the local specified area. Sewer  consultant North Watson added  that the mill rate cost would again -  be lowered as the village increased in size.  Total construction time Tor the  project was estimated at 6-9  ��� months ^f^^ttM!:-���:; council .^wasi.4  ��� forcetf to admit that if ffie'projeiit''  was not completed within the proposed 1.5 million budget the  project   would   be   'scotched*.  Thompson admitted that some  costs may also be decreased  by a revision of the plan that will  take more of- the sewer lines  down back lanes and right of  ways.  Quesions from the  floor  included accusations that the vil-  age was paying for sewer costs  that should be borne by land developers   and   statements   that  sewers   were   not   really   necessary at this time, a petition  which   included   77  signatures  of local land owners was presente  ed to the meeting in a request  that the referendum be allowed.  The council'responded by saying  that they had beat elected to  make decisions far the community  and that they therefore considered it their right to make all  decisions allowed within the municipal laws. Village Clerk Tom  Wood backed up councils demands that the project should  move ahead as quickly as possible  and stated that since 1974 the cost  had risen from $950,000 to about  1.5 million. Wood pointed out  that' further increases are inevitable if delay is caused by the  need for a referendum.  Council added that the system  will be big enough to eventually  join in with surrounding districts  and added that considerable  enviromental benefits would  be derived from die hospital and  schools hooking into the system.  Mayor Harold Nelson added  that a full scale engineering  study would be conducted when  the project was sure to go ahead  and stated that with the present  system of Federal and provincial  grants we are in effect paying for  ;e*isry^^lse;s^ ���  promised a dedsaon on the referendum by the end of the month.  A straw vote counted 39 for  a referendum, and 23 against.  Lockstead invited to  join committee  MLA Don Lockstead was advised last Thursday that he has  been asked to join the all-party  committee formed to select the  new provincial auditor-general.  Other members of the committee which includes three  Socred cabinet minister, five  Socred backbenchers, three  NDP MLA's and both the Liberal  and Conservative members  include: NDP members Dave  Stupich and Gary Lauk; Liberal  leader Gordon Gibson and Conservative leader Scott Wallace;  Socreds, Sam Bawtf, Jim Chabot,  Hugh Curtis, Jim Hewitt, Geny  Strongman, Elwood Vehch, Grace  McCarthy and Alan Williams.  Committee chairperson Grace  McCarthy stated Thursday that  it expected that the' committee  will begin seeking approval of the  unanimous choice candidate  during August.  Protest dropped  A combined meeting of the  Sunshine Coast Regional District  and the SCRD planning committee last Thursday night,  voted in favor, of dropping their,  protest to B.C. Ferries in regards  to the discontinuation of the  Plumper Covefenyservice from  Langdale. Planning Committee  Chairman Jack Patterson stated  that the problem had arisen  when the Parks Branch decided  that too much non-marine use  . was being made of the Keats  Island campsite. The Parks  Branch;asked B.C. Ferries ,to  stop the local service and several  residents who lived adjacent  to the campsite suddenly found  it much more difficult to reach  their property from the alternate  landing spot. Paterson stated  that both the Parks Branch and  B.C. Ferries were determined not  to renew the service and that  therfore the SCRD would probably be able to make no further  progress.  The planning committee also  agreed to withdraw their offer  of legal assistance to residents  who wished to contest the blockage of beach access right-of-ways  at Soames Point and Granthams  Landing.  Paterson explained that the  statute of limitations had now  expired and there was therefore,  very little that could be done..

Dixon  Sewer fight  Last Tuesday night's Sechelt sewer  meeting may finally prove once and for  all that the majority is never right, at  least in the eyes of our local. governments.  The meeting, called by the village  council in order 'to discuss the proposed  changes in the system and to announce  that they had been informed that there  was no longer a legal need for them to  proceed with the referendum as proposed  in effect proved to be only what the  council bill it as, a 'public information  meeting'. There was little opportunity  provided for the local residents to express dissident opinions. In effect  council silenced the opposition by refusing to discuss the revised cost estimates  and by admitting that the council was  unlikely to shift from it's four to one split  in favour of proceeding without benefit  of a referendum.  Why council chose to call a public  meeting when it was so obvious that they  had no intention what so ever of heeding  the public's advice is beyond our comprehension. In effect the purpose of tine  meeting was to inform the residents  that their democratic rights were to be  abridged. If Sechelt allows their council  to act in such bad faith they will have  no one but themselves to blame should  the project get out of hand. On a larger  scale the citizens of Montreal and Quebec  have been caught in the same kind of  thinking and are now responsible for  a multi-million dollar deficit which they  were never asked to authorize.  The responsibilities of elected office  go further than just obeying the law.  The law may state that should the cost  he under two mills a referendum is not  essential, but the law is not responsible  for village debts nor is it the one who will  suffer should such a policy be initiated.  The council were elected to look after  the best interests of the village, if they  are afraid their own village may reject  the proposal then it is obvious that they  are not doing their job. The time that  has been spent in organizing this public  information meeting and the additional  month  necessary to reach  a  decision  would have privided ample time for a  referendum to be held. The cost of the  referendum  would  be   about   $1,500,  the cost of avoiding one could be in the  millions.  Council claims that time is of the  essence, if so then let's get on with the  referendum. We all agree that there is  little time to waste.  Alderman Morgan Thompson has  stated that the development of a sewer  system is one of the most important  decisions in the growth of any community  at the same time he is proposing that the  local residents should have no voice in  that choice. Either council is failing to  see the forest for the trees or they are  so scared of being wrong that they are  afraid to go back to the very people who  gave them the right to represent the  Village of Sechelt.  Enough said?  Ferry figures  The recent issuing of the B.C. Ferries  Statement of Income and Expenditures  would tend to indicate that Jack Davis  has yet another 'fine tuning' of our ferry  fares to do before we can honestly say  that all we are paying for is our fair share  of the fleet deficit.  The latest figures available, the  1974-75 statement, shows a total fleet  loss of almost $25 million and a Howe  Sound-Jervis Inlet loss of $3.1 million.  Total revenue for the fleet ran at $43  million, Sunshine Coast revenue represented almost $4.2 million of that  figure.  The provincial government has stated  that they are willing to absorb an annual  loss of 25% on all operations or in other  words on a gross revenue of $43 million  they are willing to kick in a further  $11 million per year.  By the government's own figures there  is therefore only a $14 million shortage  of revenue for the entire fleet. The Sunshine Coast is presently providing approximately 10% of the total, revenue  and therefore, on a pro rata basis, should  be expected to increase it's total revenue  by some $1.4 million per annum, or about  a 33% increase on last years total gross  revenue.  Under the current rate structure  local residents are still obliged to pay  approximately 100% more for the return  voyage. Tourists ate further increased  to over 200%. Had Davis chosen to go  the route of a one-third increase he  would have met little opposition and our  tourist dollars would still be pouring in.  As it is, revenue is down and the tourist  economy is in a stranglehold, next summer they will probably try to tell us that  another   50%   increase   is   inevitable.  We would suggest that it is time Jack  Davis read his own balance sheet. Things  just aren't as blade as he would like us  to believe.  I.D. system  The resident card system is now effectively under way and as should be  the case, it is proving extremely difficult  for many local residents to pick up their  photo I.D. cards. It seems that a good  number of local residents have failed  to register on the municipal voters list  for some time and now are forced to  have an employer, landlord or relative  swear that they are indeed a Sunshine  Coast resident. To make matters worse,  it is necessary to drag the aforementioned  landlord, employer or relative to the local  government office.  Pity the poor, friendless, out-of-work  orphan with an absentee landlord, especially if the orphan lives in Egmont  and has no car.  i M Li 11 ii i  .from the files of Coast News  FIVE YEARS AGO  Dry hot weather is creating problems for Regional board and village  water supplies.

The Canadian Broadcasting  Corporation has seen fit to dedicate a few nights of Canadian  National television time to the  covering of our neighbours latest  political extravaganza.  The Canadian content to the  program   apparently   is   represented by a few juicy tidbits like,  the fact that the  New Jersey  Carter campaigners used  Canadian   New   Democratic l Party;  doorto door campaign handbooks,  while. conducting   die   primary  contests   and   comparisons   between the Democratic National  - Convention and the recent  PC  convention are a constant source  of amazement.  The CBC is unwilling to openly  give way to the intrusion of  American politics into the Canadian scene, yet, at the same  time they are unwilling to give  up the oportunity to present an  important angle of world politcs.;  The result is a mish-mash of  Canadiana'thrust into what is ���.  truly an American event. It is  unfortunate that our national  pride cannot accept the simple  fact that U.S. politics are important to this nation and therefore  that the covering of these events  does not have to be qualified  by a mass of trivia and comparison.  The Democratic nomination  of Governor Jimmy Carter of  Georgia and Senator Mondelle  of Minnesota represents a turning point in - the history - of 70S  politics. It is the first time that  a presidential candidate has won  the nomination without a consid-  arable amount of back room dealing and in effect it means that  Carter has won the nomination  as his own man, whoever that  may be. The Carter staff now  have the massive job of selling  the nation this peanut farmer  from Georgia who, until six  months ago, was virtually unknown outside of his home  state. The ease with which this  job  may  be  accomplished  will  depend not only on Carter's  ability to wing the eastern seaboard and western states which  have so far refused to give him  strong endorsement, but more on  the outcome of next months  Republican National Convention.  Should President Ford hold on  to the nomination, Carter will  indeed have to have some of  that God given support that many  Americans are now crediting  him with..'';'       ~-',:T.'X.''.':':  The American political ^system  may appear extremely confusing  to those Canadians who have  failed to take the time and trouble,  necessary for a basic understanding of the American structure.  The three levels of government  the primaries and the conventions  often confuse the uninitiated to  the point where they no longer  attempt to understand our neighbours to the south.  Unfortunately, this is an attitude that Canadians can no  longer afford to accept. Our ec-  onimic, social and even external  politics are and will continue to  be carefully co-ordinated with the  American political scene. A partial American economic recovery  has made possible a corresponding Canadian recovery and it  was only through negotiations  and co-operation with the U.S.  that the effects of last year's  economic situation were kept as  limited as they were. On the international scene Canada and the  U.S. support the same allies and  causes and it is therefore necessary to know Iwhether or not  the Americans, will attempt to  change their international stance.  No country of 20 million people  with a 3000 mile border with another nation that holds ten times  the population and 100 times the  international clout can ever hope  to stay totally independant of the  politics and culture of their larger  neighbour. The present crusade  to see Carter in the White House  may have severe effects on the  Canadian social situation as may  the drive to see 'shoot 'em up'  Reagan in the same office. Gerald  Ford is no wonder man, but there  is little doubt that he is the safest  choice ofthe three. As in Canada,  good solid leadership is becoming 7  harder and harder to find.  It is time that Canada realized  that, as much as the notion may  disturb us, next November's  presidential election is probably  as equally important to the  welfare of Canada as the upcoming; Trudeau-Clarke showdown. Canada cannot afford to  see the U.S. fall into a period of  economic restraint of hawkish  zealousness. The reign of Richard  Nixon proved all too well the  effect that an American president  can hold over the Canadian economic and social order.  There may be very little we can  do to influence our neighbours  choice, but at least we can  do ourselves the service of keeping in touch with the politics  which so affect our lives.  A   news   release   last   week  showed that the crime rate  in  Canadian   cities  has  increased ;  40% in 1975. halifax chief G.O. ;  Eobertson in an interview, art- :  ributed  much  of the increase  to   rising    unemployment    and ,  drugs. Simply expressed: People :  need more money.  I was astonished at this report. .  I took  my astonishment  along  to an oficial of Statistics Canada. '  'Certainly,' he said. 'Come right  this way. The computer will have  your information for you  in  a  Ji��y.'  At 3:45 pm he  came   back.  'Here we are. Sorry to disapoint ,  you, old girl, but you haven't <  got the facts straight. Statistics  Canada shows right here,' and ;  he jabbed at his report with a i  forefinger,'that drugs have not  increased   and that   unemploy- *  merit is actually down zero point :.  naught  percent  seasonally   adjusted for humidity, personality 7  inventory   and  volumetric   diplegia.'  'What's that last one again? -7  May I have a look at that please?'  I gamely asked. But he quickly  replied,   'Ohhh  no you   don't. .  We get you types in here all the  time - trying to jiggle information  out of us and then misrepresent .  us to your friends and the press. i.  That's confidential and that's all ;  for you,   me girl.  Good  day.' ,  Bang!  As   he   spun  on   his   heels, I  my  spirits  sank.  Here  was   a 7  noted   police   official   with   an  official statement that crime was,  not following within the guidlines  laid down by the prime minister.  Nobody   seemed  to   be   doing  anything about it. I mean, why  shouldn't   criminals   show   the  same  restraint as  the rest  of  us? And my attempt to get information on it was practically a )  breach of national security. .".  Next day, feeling a little more  brave after a wash and a brush-  up, I resolved to go to the Department of Justice to get some  straight information.  I was shown right into the  office of the Deputy Executives  Aide-de-Campe to an associate  undersecretary. 'Pleased to meet  you, enchante.' he said getting  up from behind his massive  mahogany desk and wringing  my hand warmly. 'What can we  do for you today?'  I explained my plight to him.  He nodded his head, attentively, pausing now and again  to take a few notes, or to interject  a word or two to clarify a point.  Then he was silent for a few  moments, staring pensively  out the window. Just as I was on  the brink of running out of the  office, he turned his head to face  me squarely.  'Of course the guidlines are  working,' he said authoritively.  'only they haven't had time  to work their way through the  economy of the country and this  applies especially to those poor  victims of unfortunate circumstance who may fall by the way  side and into a life of crime.'  His eyes were almost brimming  at this point.  "The plan is as follows. First  we are building new super  maximum security prisons, one  in english Canada, and the other  in French Canada. These will get  rid of our most troublesome  boys and girls for 20 or 25 years  each. And this will surely cut  down on the numerof crimes. m  'Second, we are increasing the  number of police guards everywhere. Starting at the National  Gallery and eventually increasing the .number of guards in all  institutions all across the country.  This way, more would be criminals will be spotted, frisked,  photographed and generally discouraged from trying any funny  business.  'Third, the police chiefs have  decided to swing their support  behind the guidlines in a most  encuraging and trend setting way  in every case where there is some  threat to law and order or safety  of policemen, they will shoot to  kill. This will eliminate a lot of  common criminals, from the  street.  'If the criminal will not obey  the guidlines we are obliged to  provide extra assistance to see  that the objectives of the guidlines are met and that justice  is meted out fairly for one and  all.'  'What about the part of people  needing money?' I asked.  'Actually,' he said, "The government is quite generous with  its funds.' His voice became not-  icably more cool at this point.  Take for instance the senator  from your province. Though he  attended only 35 out of 211 sitting  days since the session began  September 30th, he still gets  nfbst of his 7 senate income of  $29,300 a year.  'If that isn't generosity and  equalization payments,  I  don't  know what is. Now if you don't  mind I have a lot of work to attend  to.'  I certainly felt more relieved,  knowing that my government  is hard at work to keep life  safe and secure for the little man  as well as the big.  The Queen and Prince Philip  have now arrived in Canada  and they are warmly welcomed  here by Canadians of all cultural  origins. Indeed, they would seem  to be more welcome here than  they may be in Britain, where  they are attacked in Parliament  through budgetary means and  through   slander   totally    inad-  missable outside ofthe House.  Canada ought to bring the  Queen home to Canadians,  along with the, constitution.  She is adored wherever she  travels. Her excellent command  of the french language would  be far better appreciated here  than in Britain. With zillions of  miles of coastline and a strong  naval tradition here, the Prince  Consort, a Naval Commodore,  and in his turn, Prince Charles  would be even more at home here  than overseas. Canada's social  life could do with a sparkly princess to offset the drab colorless  politicians and their drab colorless unsovled problems in the  beautiful Ottawa valley.  TELL ME,  WHAT IS THE COLOR OF WISDOM?  The white ox and the black horse  together pull the sled,  Though each is blinkered from sight behind,  And can look but straight ahead.  So the white ox cannot see  Ihe horse all black to his right,  Nor the black horse, to his left.  The ox, pure white.  Yet each of the other knows  In his own way,-  As together they lean into collar and yoke,  Through their long day.  And when that day is done,  Ihe black beast and the white,  Alike in stable, alike in stall,  Spend side by side, the night.  St. Augustine Sunshine Coast News, July 2D, 1976  Letters to the Editor  QUESTIONS  questio  Editor:  The following question was  asked at the July 13th, 1976  public meeting:  If any member of Council  feels that there should, not be  referendum, is he prepared to  resign - his seat tonight and run  for re-election?  Each member replied that he  would not resign. The implication  of this answer is that, having  been elected by the.people, of  Sechelt, the Aldermen feel they  can do as they please; morally,  however, they have a duty to  institute the wishes of the majority.      ,  Because the meeting there  was no opportunity to ask the Aldermen the under-noted questions.  This now is their chance to answer them.  1) How many members of the  Council have ever authorized  the spending of 1.4 million  dollars?  2) Has Council- ever checked  the former sewer advisor's figures on sewer costs?  3) The people of Sechelt elected a new alderman who became the sewer advisor. If he is  satisfactory, why are there now '  two sewer advisors?  4) Has there been any attempt  to influence people to support  sewers'against their will? Why?  5) Does any member of Council  stand to profit from" sewers?  Can he render, an honest answer?  6) How many of the elected  few served their country to make  it possible today for a referendum  to be the honest and democratic  way?  HUGHBAIRD  Sechelt.B.C.  OUR FERRIES  Editor:  On Wednesday, July 14, 8  children and i mother left from  Gibsons to have a days outing  at playland. On the return trip'  we arrived at Horseshoe Bay at  10:20pm, a few minutes late for  the last run to Gibsons, due to  losing one child at playland. ~ ���  Wc enquired at the terminal in  Horseshoe Bay about the possibility of sleeping on the ferry or in  the small waiting room and were .  refused.  Between us all we were short  on money and the cost fen* a hotel  room was nearly $50. for the 9  of us per night.   .  A mother of one of the girls  was called in Gibsons and after  making 8 phone calls to North  Vancouver a ride and accomodation at a grandmother's house  were finally arranged. We arrived  there at 1:30am.  This is our good ferry system,  last run 10:10pm from Horseshoe  Bay, no planes, no boat and no  way to get back home.-  We were almost left out in  the street without a place to go.  If it hadn't been for the kindness  of the grandmother and a man  who was'willing to take us all  by car, we would have all had to  sleep on the street. This is our  ferry system7 and I feel it is  very badly run.,  IRATE RESIDENT  B.CG.E.U.  Editor: '  hT regards to a letter in .last  weeks  issue  headed  'BCGEU'  , and left unsigned, at I imagine ;  the authors wishes;  This person. states that the ;  BCGEU does nothing for this  community 'either financially,  morally or with volunteer help'.  This .statement is completely  untrue in my opinion for the following reasons: >; '  Financially we cannot donate  monies to any individual as our  membership encompasses communities throughout the province and some in other parts of  the world - (government houses)  hence we would then be obliged  to these communities as well.  .Groups like Port Mellon handle  their own-monies for their own  local, and are basically a union  amongst themselves, and are  able to contribute locally. Our  members on an individual basis  do contribute to various projects.  Morally, for one instance,  during, the recent Concerned  ' Citizens demonstrations at Langdale terminal, there was no rebuff  from the employees working  and there was undoubtedly  BCGEU members in the group.  As far as volunteer help is concerned, many of the BCGEU  members belong to service clubs,  Legions, Lions, Kinsmen, Fire  Departments, die newly formed  Sea Cadet Corps, etc, which  contribute both morally and financially.  I hope this will cowect the. unnamed members' way of thinking  towards the BCGEU, the group  that helps to put food on his/her  table and has provided him/her  with one of the best contracts  in the labour force to date.  Also I will sign and have  printed my name,which the  author of last week's letter did  not have the intestinal fortitude  to do.

Jack Pearsall, M.P. for Coast  Chilcotin announced last week  through the office of Urban  Affairs Minister, Barney Danson  the municipalities in British  Columbia which will receive  N.I.P. (Neighbourhood Improvement Program) Grants for 1976.  Fifteen B.C. municipalities  will receive a total of $10.4  million.  This amount includes . a SO  per cent grant from Ottawa, a  25 per cent grant from Victoria,  and a 25 per cent low interest  loan from the federal government  to the municipality if required.  Pearsall pointed : out that  Gibsons and Powell River were  to receive $300,000 each* These  municipalities are selected by  the Department of Housing.  The municipalities, in turn select  the neighbourhoods that will  need the financial assistance.  The objective is to improve  amenities and living conditions  in predominantly residential  neighbourhoods.  The improvement projects are  then planned by residents of the  selected neighbourhoods through  the municipality 'within the.  amount  of funds  available   to  400 Club  Local resident John Buckingham won $100 in the third weekly  drawing of the lions Club's  '400 Club'raffle.  The winning ticket was drawn  at the Gibsons Bank of Montreal  last Friday morning by Tina  Vanderhorn.  them. The 1976 program agreement requires the federal government to provide $5.2 million  in grants. The provincial share is  $2.6 million in grants. Loans are  available to municipalities for  their share of the program from  the federal government.  . Last year, 16 municipalities  received a total of $7.65 million  in grants from the. two senior  governments, and in 1974, the  - first year of the program, eight  municipalities were extended $6  million. Therefore, to date,  32 municipalities are benefiting  from the program with Vancouver  and New Westminster being  selected for three years in a row  and Nelson, Powell River and  Victoria getting the nod twice.  Danson said all participating  neighbourhoods are also eligible  for the federal government's  Residential Rehabilitation Assistance Program (RRAP). RRAP  families in these neighborhoods  may borrow up to $10,000 from  Central Mortgage and Housing  Corporation to restore their  homes to acceptable standards'  of health and safety. Up to $3,750  is forgiveable, according to  income.

July,^^^l|r]iipic salad month  Anytime is salad time, but  during the months of July and  August most Canadians will  be enjoying top quality salad  foods at seasonal prices.  Salad vegetables are at their  crisp, tender best now and when  combined with protein foods such  as meat, poultry, eggs or cheese  they make satisfying main dishes.  Fresh vegetables play an import-  ' ant role in our diet because they  provide essential vitamins,  minerals and fibre.  This year, salad month coincides with the staging of the  Olympic games in Montreal.  Olympic athletes are rated among  the healthiest people in the world,  so it's hardly surprising that  they'll be offered salads at both  lunch and dinner, every single  day of the games. There will be  more than a dozen types of salads  avaialable during that time.  Can you7m_g_e putting in  this market order: 20 tons of  lettuce, 13 tons of shredded cabbage, 26 tons of tomatoes, 20  tons of cumbers and a ton of  green onions?

A common and very inportant  dietary modification is .the diabetic diet. This is not a strict  dietary regime except that table  sugar must be eliminated. In  fact, a diabetic meal plan has  room for a great deal of choice  and variety.  The concept of the diabetic  v diet is merely that a calculated  or portioned amount of carbohydrates are eaten at approximately the same time each day.  This balances with available  insulin so that the disease is  controlled.  What is diabetes?  It is an inborn problem so that  the organ, the pancreas, does  not produce the proper amount  of insuling. Insulin is required  to carry carbohydrates or dietary  sugars to the cells. Without  insulin,the cell starve for glucose  (the most simple sugar) which  is needed for energy.  Meanwhile, the blood is saturated with sugar which spills  into the urine. Stored fats, are  burned for energy and ketones,  a poisonous by-product of this  breakdown, build up.  Diabetes is fairly ' common.  TTiere are three ways of controlling it: 1) by diet alone, 2)  by diet plus pills which help the  pancreas to produce extra insulin,  3) by diet plus intramuscular  insulin when the pancreas has  totally lost its function.  Many people in their middling  years are diagnosed as diabetic  because they are overweight.  This is the most oommon type  of diabetic person. When someone is carrying extra fat, this  can cause peripheral resistance  so that the insulin that is circulating cannot get through  to outlying cells. Soon, the pan-  crea becomes so overworked  that it loses some or all of it's  function.  When a person becomes diabetic due to extra weight, sometimes the problem can be overcome by losing the excess bulk.  On the other hand, when the  strain has been so long on the  pancreas, a meal plan plus pills  or insulin must be taken each  day.  The  other type of diabetes  by DONNA GAUUN        ' ���  I  I  I  I  .1  is called jeuvenile diabetes where  a child or young teen becomes  severely diabetic with a complete  loss    of    pancreatic    function.  The young diabetic must receive insulin each day and follow  a habitual meal plan. It is difficult with an active growing  person to anticipate how much  dietary sugar is needed: Proper  instruction about diabertic  unbalances such as dizziness  or excessive thirst or urination, ���'  teach a person when to take extra  starches or insulin.  It is rather interesting to notice  how healthy a diabetic person  is after following a meal plan for  some time. Good food is constantly eaten in a regular manner  without empty calorie foods and  sweets!   i   '  H  Depending on the severity,  the dietician calculates a meal  plan according to the type of  insulin or pills and usingthe suggested number of grams of  carbohydrate. The physician  decides how many grams of carbohydrate balance with the  insulin by testing urine and blood  in the hospital. The doctor also  suggests an amount of calories  that will provide for regular  activity.  A simple meal plan is calculated  balancing   the   natural  starches or carbohydrates throughout the day and providing all  the    necessary    nutrients    for  health. According to the patients  eating habits,   a  typical, meal  plan could be:  BREAKFAST  1 choice fruit  1 choice cereal or bread  1 choice protein  Vicup milk  LUNCH OR SUPPER  1 choice fruit  2 choices starch  2-4 choices protein (2-4 counces)  1 choice fat  2 choices vegetables  Vi cup milk  Afternoon and Evening Snack  1 choice fruit  It is now fact that sugar is not  a healthful food. It is striclty  calories without nutrition or  bulk. Sugar isalso a very expensive source of calories.  There must be a balance of  nutrients in everyones's diet.  Diabetes can take it's time before  being diagnosed. Perhaps, - if  more of us avoided white sugar,  sweets* and refined foods; the  incidence of this disease (at least)  would be less.    7  . ;  Any questions?

July 20,1976  Report from the legislature  As the spring session of the  legislature ground to a halt last  week, the desparate condition of  the B.C. Ferry system again  received attention. Opposition  members continued to protest  the large and unfair increase in  fares. Frightening information  about the safety standards was  revealed. The' serious effects  of the increased rates became apparent in the tourist industry.  Throughout it all, the Social  Credit government was unmoved.  Backed by their majority in the  House who dared not speak out  against the government's will,  Social Credit ministers have  chosen to ignore the consequences of their poor management ofthe ferry system.  Speaking in the final hours of  the legislative sitting, I rose to  speak on these serious matters,  particularly as effect the Mac-  Kenzie riding. In our area higher  ferry fares have reduced the  number of tourists and as a result  the local economy, already in a  poor state, has become depressed  The number of businesses for  sale on the Sunshine Coast and  in PoweU River has probably  never been so high.  What an insult to our struggling business community when  Jack Davis told the legislature  that local merchants are using the  fere increases to raise prices on  goods'unnecessarily l At the same  time employers who have been  able to attract skilled employees  to the area, partly because it was  so easily accessible to the facilities of the Lower Mainland,  will lose some of their competitive edge - because people  simply cannot look upon the ferry  system as a reasonable form of  transportation anymore.  . Clearly, the ferry rates were  increased in the spirit of vin-  dictiveness which has been the  mark of the Social Credit coalition government since its  coming to office last December.  At the same time, lack of  decision has combined with ill-  conceived decisions about  staffing, quality of service  and indeed the whole future of  die fleet. This bad management,  I believe, arises from the lack of  a clear well thought out policy  on the ferry system.  No effort has been made to  relate the ferry system to the  whole transportation picture. No  effort has been made to consider  the social and economic consequences of apparently isolated  decisions effecting the ferry  service.  Instead, the ferry system,  under Transport- Minister Davis,  is being looked on as a set of  ledger books that can be manipulated according to the narrow  interests of downtown Vancouver  business interests and their  accountants. The deal whereby  ferries are given over to a kind  of holding company and then  leased back to the government is  the kind of sleazy bookkeeping  that is typical of the Social  Credit attitude from the ferries.  As Nanaimo MLA Dave Stupich  pointed out, in the House, the  lease back deal in the end means  that Eastern financiers will reap  guaranteed profits while the full  cost of the transaction will be  hidden from view. Mr. Stupich  described the lease-back deal as  the forerunner of the kinds of,  things we can expect from the  new ferry corporations and the  other Crown corporations being'  set up as dummies in which this  government plans to stuff huge  deficits while proclaiming great  savings through their 'efficiency'.'

Ferries Information Centre.  h  fc Sunshine Coast News, July 2D, 1978  by Alexis  The Golden Unicom by Phyllis A.  Whitney. Doubleday and Co. Inc.  279 p. hardcover, published June  18/76.  Phyllis Whitney is an established author with an excellent  reputation in the field of romantic  novels. She is the author of almost two dozen books, of which  the most recent is Spfa drift.  The Golden Unicorn is set in contemporary United states, on Long  Island, New York. It tells the  story of Courtney Marsh, adopted  as a child, and her search for the  identity of her real parents and  family. When her adoptive parents die suddenly, Courtney decides to take a leave of absence  from her position with a large  weekly magazine and go in search  of her identity. She has only one  clue - a tiny golden unicorn on a  chain which was around her neck  when she was adopted as an infant.  Her search leads her to a wealthy but reclusive family, with  secrets which are gradually exposed. Only after several attempts on her life and the murder  of one member of the family,  clue  Davison  is Courtney Marsh able to piece  together all the circumstances  surrounding her adoption more  than twenty years previous.  The Golden Unicorn is very enjoyable light reading. It is essentially a 1976 gothic romance -  except that the mysterious force  stalking the heroine is evidently  a real-person. The only question  is who and why. It is very well  written (as are all of Ms Whitney's books) and once begun,  demands your full attention  through successive shocks to the  surprise happy ending.

Intertidal prospecting  If you live or holiday near any  of the thousands of pocket  beaches which nestle between  the rocky promontories of British Columbias 17,000 mile  coastline, you are missing  much of the fun of living off the  land if you don't try clam digging,  a clam beach may be a mixture  of sand-mud-gravel in varying  proportions and you tell whether  it has clams by stamping over  it slowly on a falling tide, looking  for siphon holes or jets of water  made by clams squirting.  The only requisites for the exercise are the strength and stamina you developed digging weeds  in the garden, and the tools you  used there will serve you nicely  for clam harvesting.  British Columbia, in common  with most of the Pacific Coast  from Alaska to Southern California, is home to dozens of  varieties of bivalves; you are  looking for some of the bigger and  more common ones for your  chowder.  ��� If you are a beginning clam  digger, you will be lucky if you  find Manila clams. These little  2*/j inch or less fellows are so  obliging as to live just under the  sands surface, and your short-  tined garden rake wul harvest  them nicely. They are common  in the Straits of Georgia, Sooke  and Barkely Sound areas, from  about three-foot to half tide  levels.  Very similar in appearance  and size to the Manila is the  (native) Littlemeck. It lives  farther out, tidally speaking, even  to water  depth of six  inches.

MISS BEE'S, SECHELT  You are likely (if you have progressed to the point of digging  with your flat-tined pptatoe fork)  to find the Littleneck sharing  living space with the much larger-  up to 5 inch - Butter clam, which  can burrow (depending of course  upon the length of its siphon)  as deep as 12 inches. This oval  fellow is, understandably, British Columbia's principal commercial cldm, because of his  size and distribution on sand/  gravel/broken shell beaches all  along the coast. Also, importantly to the commercial harvester  all of his meat is tender and succulent without special treatment.  This is not the case with either  the horse-clam or the geoduck  (gooey-duck, so named for an  Indian work meaning dig deep).  You have done just that to get  both of these dams, so don't  waste them. The horse clam  lives as deep as 18 inches, the  geoduck down to three feet.  Those long siphons wouldn't  look very good on a cracker at  a tea party, so cut them off,  scald and skin them; and chop  them finely in your chowder.  . The meat is white and succulent  and forms up to 60% percent of  the clam's weight.  While digging, or even raking,  you may uncover the distinctively  ridged cockle. Don't spurn him:  you wouldn't if you priced his  close European relative, pickled,  in a gourmet store. You can treat  him likewise, or steam him,  or add him to your chowder.  Other clams which are less  common, but which you may  encounter     (especially     around  Vancouver Island beaches)  are*: the deep burrowing sand  clam, up to AVt inches long;  the hooked surf dam, up to three  inches or more; the sunset shell,  the thin-shelled littleneck;  and various Piddocks. All are  good to add to your chowder.  The Razor clam, the only one  for which digging'could be classified as a sport - requiring a  'clam gun', a narrow, especially  curved shovel, for which the nearest source of supply is Washington State's Long Beach Peninsula  is, alas, not readily available in  British Columbia, since Vancouver Island's Long Beach is  closed due to 'red tide'. Should  you be so fortunate as to get to  Massett on the Queen Charlottes  grab your clam gun (or one of  those long narrow semi-circular  shovels used for finishing post  holes and called by construction  men a 'hot shot'); dig like mad  just to seaward of the siphon  hole or water squirt; grab the  clam before he can burrow deeper  and pop him into a burlap sack.  If you don't, you've lost him  forever.  The Jacknife, a little known  relative of the Razor, is fairly  widely distributed but not numerous in 'safe' sand-mud flats  elsewhere on Vancouver Island.  Happy hunting - and chowder-  ing.  (This Travel B.C. story is one  of a series provided by the British' Columbia Department of  Recreation and Travel Industry.)
