 Provincial.Library,  Victoria, B. C.  Regional Planner Adrian Stott was invited by Sechelt Village  Council to attend their regular meeting held on Wednesday,  October 20th, to discuss their Zoning By-Law 146 and some  apparent discrepancies which had been found in it. The by-law  was drawn up by Norm Watson during his time on council.  Stott suggested that it might be time to review the rezoning  by-law. He expressed his concern about what is not in the  by-law. He pointed out that there was nothing in the by-law  to limit the height of any building built in the Village nor was  there anything to limit the number of dwellings that could be  built on a single Village lot. Stott said that the only controlling  factor at the moment was the lack of a sewage system. With the  acheivement'of a sewer system the Village would be vulnerable  to possibly irresponsible development.   ���  Planner Stott said that he felt  that the lack in the by-law was  merely an oversight but that the  council might wish to rectify it  before the advent of a sewage  disposal system makes the situation critical. Stott suggested that  if possible the Village's and the  Regional District's by-laws might  well resemble each other in the  interests of consistency.  Another matter that Stott  brought before council was the  question of tentative approval  given to would-be subdivision  developments. He pointed out  that the Department of Highways .  gives one hundred and eighty  days after the granting of tentative approval for subdivision developments for the developer to  institute basic improvements in  the property he seeks to develop.  Renewals are available if needed,  but Stott expressed himself as  feeling that this was rather short.  Stott said that, the Regional District is proposing a two-year limit  before improvements must be  made and suggested that the Village Council might consider a  similar arrangement. The problem arises due to the fact that  at the present time in the village of Sechelt there is virtually  no time limit attached to, the  tentative approval, resulting in  land being held for subdivision  development with none of the  basic improvements taking place  for unlimited periods of time.  It was moved by Council that  the General District Planner be  asked to give advice on the means  of bringing general by-laws into  something approaching alignment.  In other Village business the  Village Council agreed to drop the  imposition of a two mill increase  to pay for the Village sewer  system and to go to referendum  on the sewer question. A letter  will be sent to the Regional  District to this effect. The referendum will be held in conjunction with the election date.  . The Village Council also gave  its approval of the suggested  joint use of School facilities for  recreational purposes. It was  agreed that this was a move  which would redound to the benefit of the general public. The  motion was made by Alderman  Morgan.  The problem of paved access to  the Sunshine Coast Ice Arena  was discussed and it was agreed  that something must be done:  A letter will be written to the  developer over whose land .the  access road runs, Len Van  Egmond, asking him what his  intentions are with regard to the  development of his contiguous  subdivision.

The manager of the new branch is Gerry  Council to investigate apartments  Socreds elect Officers  The Village Council of Gibsons  dealt with a variety of matters at  their regular meeting held on  Tuesday, October 19th. Perhaps  the most controversial issue referred to the complaints received  that the Maple Crescent Apart:  ments were in an unhealthy and  untidy condition.  In a letter addressed to Clerk-  Treasurer, J. W. Copland, of  Gibsons, L. J. Lauer, President  of Johler Holdings Ltd. which  owns the property, said that he  was at a loss to understand precisely what the complaints of untidy and unhealthy conditions  were based on as his company  representatives had visited the  apartment building frequently  over the past few weeks and  found no evidence to support the  charges contained in Copland's  letter of September 9th, 1976.  Lauer maintained that the  building had been painted outside  during the last year, that garbage  was collected regularly from  several containers and that the  grass, even when it has gone too  long between cuttings is not as  long as the grass around the  Municipal Hall.  Lauer said that his company  felt that the complaint was based  on maliciousness rather than any  real concern and could not accept  the Village's statement that it is  a "most acute Community  problem".  The Village Council moved to  inspect the Maple Crescent  Apartments before proceeding  in the matter.  In another matter Arthur B.  Morrow of Richmond, B. C. wrote  his second letter of complaint  to the Village Council concerning  his inability to proceed with  development of his property on  the Gibsons bluff while waiting  for the hook-up to the sewer  system. Morrow complained  about the high taxes he had to  pay on his undeveloped property.  The Council made a motion to  turn the matter over to the planning  committee.     Council  felt  sure that by next year an engineering study would be done.  Opposition voiced recently to  the proposed airport fees was in-  - vestigatd and it was found that  compared to the. lower mainland  they were cheaper. A list of  names and registrations of airplane owners is to be compiled  and they will be billed a fee of  $10.00 per month.  By-Law 29-5 regarding tiie re-  . zoning necessary for the proposed  Neighbourhood Pub passed its  final reading and was adopted.  Letters opposing the pub were  received from Brian Cooper and  Fred Inglis. Inglis'. letter enclosed a petition with a partial  list.of signatures that have been  connected opposing the pub and  in favour, of designating the old  Inglis House as an Historic  building.  In an administration report to  Council, Clerk-Treasurer Copland  referred to the fact that his office  had received from the Post Office a registered letter which was  not received by R. M. Kelly of  Kelly's Cleanup Service respecting the untidy premises in and  around his property. The registered letter was forwarded to  Kelly following the September  21st regular meeting of Council.  Copland said that the only recourse left Council would seem  to be to initiate legal action  against Kelly. Council decided to  visit Kelly once more to see'if  they could get him to dean up  his property on Marine Drive and  avoid congestion on the highway. ������  A letter was received by Council from Pastor Nancy J. Dykes  of the Glad Tidings Tabernacle  drawing attention to the insufficient street lighting on the  corner of Gower Point Road and  Dogwood Steet. Pastor Dykes  said that there had been from  time to time some trouble with  vandalism in the area and expressed the opinion that a street  light on the spot would really  help. She also said that.it would  have the dual purpose of helping.  the elderly see dearly when  coming and going from the  church. The Village Council  agreed with the suggestion and  made a motion to, contact the  Department of Public Works. '' ���. \  In a letter dated October 14th,  A. G. Pressley, Secretary-Treasurer of the Sunshine Coast  Regional Board, informed the  Village Council that the Regional  Board has no objection to the  proposed boundary extension of  the boundaries of the Village to  include the following lands  presently in Electorial Area 'E':  1. Blocks 1, 2, 3, and 4, D.L.  689, Plan 2987; 2. Block 5, D.L.  684, Plan 4438; 3. Block 6, D.L.  684, Plan 4438.  Election of Officers and Executive was held at the general  annual meeting of the Social  Credit Mackenzie South Association on Monday, October 18,  1976 at Wilson Creek Community  Hall.  A motion was passed to change  the name to Madceirae South  from the previous Sechelt,  Gibsons Association. . ���'"  Elected for a 2 year term were:  President - HomerGiass 885-9418  1st. Vice Pres. . - Lil Fraser  885-2894, 2nd Vice Pres. June  Sheridan 885-9771, 3rd. Vice  Pres. - Ted Ashton 885-2042,  Recording Secretary - Al Pollack  885-2160, and Treasurer - Pat  Whitaker 885-2438.  Attending  the  meeting   also  were the - executive and representatives from me Pender  Harbour Association. President  Catherine MacQuitty congratulated Mackenzie South's new  executive and expressed also  that they were looking forward to  working together on aD the  projects that will be planned. She  extended a hearty invitation to  everyone to attend their meetings  at Pender Harbour.  Guest speaker for the evening  was Mr. Graeme:Roberts, new  appointee to The Board of Directors of the recently formed B. C.  Perry Corporation.  . Refreshments were served  after a very interesting and informative meeting.  A major robbery was reported  this week involving a considerable amount of controlled drugs  and general medicines from the  storeroom of Kruse's Pharmacy  on Highway J01 near the Medical k  Clinic. ITie storeroom was  virtually cleaned out.  Pharmacist Ray Kruse told  the Coast News that those responsible just started at the A's  on his shelf and took everything.  Kruse' said that in conversation  with the Pharmaceutical Association in Vancouver he had  learned that such total robberies  were on the increase in the Lower  Mainland region.  Police said that a considerable  quantity of controlled drugs such  as demarol, morphine and Seconal were stolen along with  amphetamines, barbiturates,  insulin and penicillin. Also  causing some concern is the fact  that five cases of outdated baby  food called Infalac were taken.  A medical source said that there  was no doubt that if the baby.  food was fed to infants they would  in all likelihood become quite ill.  The Coast News understands  that, while it is likely that the  materials would have been ship- >  ped immediately to Vancouver,  local teachers have been alerted'  to be watchful for signs among  their students *��f the effects; of  any of the dangerous drugs.  St. Mary's Hospital has also circulated an alert to watch out for  signs, of drug overdoses. The  value of the materials stolen from  the drug storeroom was in the  neighbourhood of $2,500.  In other police news last week  there was a report of a stolen tool  chest from Dakoda Creek of the  Port Mellon Highway. Rudy  Crucil reported that during the  night of October 21st a tool box  and contents valued at $120.00  was stolen. No suspect has yet  been named.   Also on the night  of October 21st,. Armand Wold  reports the theft of construction  materials from the Charles English subdivision at Wharf Road in  Langdale. Forty two by fours  ��^ were ,tak^ along w^ some ply -  "wood and fifty "pounds of hails.  The value of the material taken  is estimated at $175.00.  On the 18th of October police  report that a six horsepower  four-cycle motor valued at $230.  was taken from the Port Mellon  gravel pit of the Department of  Highways. Finally in police news  last week, Lloyd Partridge of  Sargeant Road in Gibsons reported that his twelve foot fibre-  glass boat was missing along with  a 1975 Evinrude Motor. The boat  was last seen moored at Smitty's  Marina. >  Extension tenders  The Ministry of Public Works  has advised Coast Chilcotin Member of Parliament, Jack Pearsall,  that it is prepared to put out for  tender, float extensions' for  Madeira Park and Egmont.  Pearsall had asked for the  additional  docking areas  along  due to the  in   marine  the Sunshine Coast  continuing   growth  traffic.  Tenders are due on October 26,  1976 and have been advertised by  the Pacific Regional Office of  Public Woiks.  Pearsall for hanging  Liberal Member of Parliament  for the Coast Chilcotin riding,  Jade Pearsall wants it known that  he had consistently voted against  Bill C-84, the bill to repeal capital punishment. In a press release issued recently Pearsall  said that he was most disturbed  when travelling around the riding  to find that several constituents  had heard that he had changed  his position and voted for the bill  to repeal the death penalty.  Pearsall said he felt that careless reporting by the national  press had been responsible  for the misapprehension. In the  Hansard copies enclosed with the  press release, Pearsall was recorded as having voted against  the government and in favour of  capital punishment.  A little macabre perhaps but not totally put of keeping  with the spirit of Hallowe'en. Jim Hillstad of Port Mfellon  Highway originally intended the coffin as a stereo console  but so far it's still a coffin. There is some debate as to  whether the cat was there when the picture was taken.  Photo by Ian Corrance of CosyCorners Cameras.  SCRD  Planning  Regional Board Chairman John McNevin was in the chair at  the meeting of the Planning Committee held on Thursday,  October 21st due to the absence of regular chairman Jack  Paterson.  The committee discussed the practice of lot owners parking  travel trailers on their property which are only used occasionally.  This was felt to be unacceptable since it contravened mobile  ���home restrictions.   A permit system might be introduced in  order that sewage disposal, at least, can be taken care of.  Pursuant to a Land Use Contract entered into with Malibu  Management on Nelson Island, the Regional District has acquired a ten-acre park at Cape Cockburn on Nelson Island.  Meanwhile changes have been suggested in the Land Use Contract pertaining to Secret Cove. It was felt that the roadways  planned in the area were too narrow and should be widened.

Dixon  Resource society  The Sunshine Coast Community Resource Society is an organization which is  only a very few years old and it is an organization which has made great strides  since its inception. Thursday last, U  elected a new slate of officers with Agnes  Labonte as its chairman replacing  Bernice Tyson who has served for the  past year.  It is an organization which perhaps  does not receive the recognition it  deserves. Among the services it has  instituted since its founding are the  Homemakers Service for those whom  illness or age have rendered incapable  of complete self-sufficiency; the Minibus  Transportation Service which provides  transportation in need situations to  medical appointments, dental appointments, day care, etc.; a variety of im  portant services to our Senior Citizens;  and throughout the Regional District it  co-ordinates the services available for  pre-school children.  The Community Resource Society has  published a booklet entitled Directory  of Services which is available for $2.50  from the office of the Community Resource Association in Sechelt and it is  an exhaustive list of the organizations  and services available throughout our  Regional District. The booklet is absolutely invaluable for residents, whether  newcomers or oldtimers, who would like  to know what type of facilities and  services are available to them here on  the Sunshine Coast. With it available,  no one need complain about lack of information about the community. The  Association which has produced it  deserves the thanks of all of us.  Loopholes  The question of the tightening of  Zoning By-law 146 covering Sechelt  Village is one which should be of concern  to all residents of the village. The loopholes which presently exist in the by-law  are no doubt an oversight on the part of  the original drafters of the by-law but,  as Regional Board Planner Adrian Stott  pointed out to the council last week, the  lack of regulations governing the height  of buildings in the village and the number  of houses that can be built on any given  lot, amongst other concerns, is not the  type of lack which can be permitted  through inadvertence. The future shape  of the community is at stake.  If the resi  dents of Sechelt decide they want the  development of high rises and dwelling  density in their village that is one thing;  if the village develops in that direction  due to a carelessly drawn-up by-law then  that is an entirely different matter.  The Village Council is to be congratulated for giving Planner Stott a hearing  at last Wednesday's meeting and he in  turn deserves much credit for bringing  the matter to the attention of the Village  fathers. Informed vigilance is the price  that must be paid by reasonable men  if they would have local government  legislation that is both responsive and  responsible.  Candidates  Candidates are declaring themselves  for the forthcoming fall elections. There  seems to be some considerable interest  in running for office and that is surely  only as it should be. The responsibilities  of local government office are no doubt  onerous but if, through indifference and  apathy, those responsibilities are left  solely in the hands of special interest  groups then there must be no surprise  if special interests alone are served.   A  district as attractive as this one has a  great need for dedicated and selfless  people to volunteer for the task of government.  There is an adage that a people only  get the type of government they deserve.  Let us hope that after the elections next  month we will find ourselves with local  government bodies who will govern as  wisely and well as the place itself deserves.  Street names  Miss Helen Dawe of Sechelt has  suggested a selection of names for unnamed streets in Sechelt. For the little  street which runs north and south at the  end of Barnacle Street she has suggested  a choice of Pilot Avenue, Kelp Avenue,  or Heron Avenue. For the little unnamed  street parallelling Porpoise Bay she  recommends one of Landwash Road,  Kingfisher   Road,   Quarterdeck   Road.  Miss Dawe is to be congratulated for her  suggestion that the names chosen reflect the character and topography of the  place rather than any further aggrandizing of individual egos. We have had  quite enough of that from the provincial  regime of W. A. C. Bennet as well as  locally in some instances. We trust the  Sechelt Council will see the merit of her  suggestions.  ...from the files of Coast Naws  5YEARSAGO  A by-pass which does not involve  passing through already populated areas  with its pattern of roads has been approved by the Regional District Board.  Mrs. Lilian Swan son got knocked over  by a Great Dane while awaiting the return ferry. She suffered a broken hip.  She was returning from Pemberton along  with a bus load of Sechelt area Senior  Citizens.  10YEARSAGO  Mrs.   Jessie   Elizabeth   Soames   of  Soames Pt. died in her 88th year.   She  was a pioneer in Gibsons' area earlier  days.  An Army truck in Gibsons on Saturday  knocked down part of the canopy in  front of stores in the Bal Block. The  wrecked part now rests at the side of  the block on Jack's Lane.  15 YEARS AGO  Five teenagers discovered a wounded  Whistling Swan at Roberts Geek booming grounds. It was put in the care of  Mrs. Lissaman.  20 YEARS AGO  New B.C.E. Cheekye-Pbwell River  power line is ready for operation. This  new transmission line brings added  security of electric service to Gibsons and  neighboring communities.  Gale winds estimated at 90 miles per  hour, with torrential tains, did considerable damage in the Pender Harbour area.  25 YEARS AGO  Marjory Main and Percy Kilbride are  starring at the Sechelt Theatre in "Ma  and Pa Kettle Back onthe Farm''.  Port Mellon's first fatality is an ac-.  cident according to evidence given at the  inquest presided by Coroner Dr. D.T.R.  McColI. The victim, Alexander McDavid,  64, resided in Vancouver.  byL.R. Peterson  Irvines Landing, Pender Harbour, about 1910.  At some time late in  the 19th century, local Indians permitted a Chinese trader to build a  small trading post here.   Charles Irvine purchased the property in  the 1890's and built the hotel, to left, and adjacent store. By the time  of this photo, the establishments were owned by Joe Gonzales and  his son-in-law, Theo Dames. During the years of intense fishing and  logging operations, Irvines Landing served as a very busy jumping-  off point for Jervis Inlet. Photo presented to Elphinstone Pioneer  Museum by Mrs. Alice Wray.  musings from burnside       Pender Harbour Perspective  by Wendy Skapslri  Well, well it's Hallowe'en yet  again and all the little once a  year witches and warlocks, hobgoblins and spooks wiU be patrolling the streets between the  hours of supper and bedtime once  again. Some will come to the  door-in groups of eight to twelve  year old independence and competence. Some will be ushered to  their annual welcome by anxious  and protective parents - the  littlest hobgoblins of them all.  Some will come approaching  adolescence, a little shame-faced  and embarassed making their last  runs for the free goodies. May  they all receive a welcome.  I'm a little short of Hallowe'en  memories myself. Much of it was  denied me because by the time>I  came along my father had been  injured in the coal-mines and we  were among the poorest of the  poor and my mother's position  was that what we couldn't afford  to give we would not take. It  was a position I bitterly resented  at the time but like most of the  other parental restrictions I  resented I came to appreciate  its. wisdom and integrity more  with the passage of time.  My brother and sister were  quite a bit .older and grew up in  happier times with an earning  father and in the confines of a  Commentary  tightly structured coal mining  village called Glenbuck - of which  much might and may. yet be written. They learned in those days  and in that place their little songs  and poems and dances and everywhere they went - with the occasional exception of the bachelor  recluse who might greet them  with a pail of rejection in the form  of cold water - with that exception, everywhere they went they  went inside to perform. It wasn't  trick or treat but trick and treat,  a kind of perambulating party  with a scene played in almost all  the houses of the village and the  adults waiting tobe delighted and  entertained as well as to dispense  the largesse of the season.  Something of my own feeling  of lack in the Hallowe'en adven-  turings was assuaged during my  first or second year of high school  when my arrival in grammar  school, while it coincided with the  age at which one can hardly  decentlymake the annual October  pilgrimage, did introduce me  through my classmates to the  homes of the comfortably off and  the downright well-to-do and I  attended somewhere around 1951  or 1952 a glorious, extravagant  Hallowe'en party with all the  games and contests and costumes  that I had read about and yearned  for.  We dangled scones on strings,  scones dripping with treacle and  raced to eat them with our hands  behind our backs with prizes for  the treacle-smearedwinners. We  floated apples in large tin tubs  and tried to seize them with our  teeth and again prizes for the  winners, sudden mayhem in the  form of sneak attacks by one's  friends and rivals resulting in  total spluttering immersion. Our  hosts brought in a monstrous tin  tub full of mashed potatoes in  which were secreted sixpences  and we surrounded it with our  forks at the ready. At a given signal, with all of us gathered avariciously around the tub, the lights  were put out and we attacked the  potatoes. Of course we attacked  each other too and threw our forks  aside and plunged to the elbows  in the mashed potatoes reasoning  that ten fingers were better able  to locate the treasure than just  tongue and teeth and of course  we smeared each other in mashed  potatoes in a scene of uproarious  outrage and delight till someone  eventually turned the lights bade  on and rescued the fallen. And  finally we all around the fireplace-  with our wilder energies for the  time being in abeyance - each  with a monstrous apple covered  in hard toffee on a stick munched  and chewed and told each other  ghost and horror stories and so  home drained and delighted to  tummy-aches and dreams.  We have, of course, our contemporary horror stories of monsters who insert razor blades in  .apples destined for children.  What to do? We mustn't desert  our festive occasions. There are  all too few opportunities when the  community feels as one in these  rootless and fragmented times  but perhaps we could steal a  page from an older book and  teach our children songs and  poems and have our celebrations  ; organized and supervised, but for  God's sake not lifeless. Certainly  we can aspire to a synthesis of  magic, joy, and gentleness for  the little folk at Hallowe'en,  knowing that if we in some  measure attain it for them it  cannot help but touch us too. A  good Hallowe'en to all and may  all your ghosts be friendly  visitors.  Fun in the sun?  Sharon Bethune, the 22 year  old Richmond girl who has been  incarcerated in a Mexican jail  for the last eight months, arrived  home last Friday night amid  cheers of self congratulation on  the part of the Vancouver media.  The press are only too quick to  point out that eight months of  diplomatic manouvering and  $18,000. worth of Sharon's  family's life savings were unable  to equal one days worth of media  crusading.  Sharon, who was arrested last  spring and charged with "importing and distributing counter- -  fit U.S. currency" later told the  Vancouver press conference a  horror story of torture, beatings,  insufficent food and physical  abuse. The Canadian government, acting in it's usual weak-  kneed manner had advised Roy  Bethune, her father, to keep the  story away from the media then  promptly sat on their thumbs  while a Canadian citizen, who  claims she was falsely accused,  was held in a Mexican jail for  eight months without the benefit  of a trail. Attempts by Roy  Bethune to buy Sharon's way out  of jail helped to at least improve  the quality of food she received,  but failed to secure the giri's release. Then, after eight months  of worry and frustration, Roy  Bethune finally told his story and  less than twenty-four hours after  it appeared in the Vancouver  papers, Sharon wassafely headed  home with a letter clearing her of  any involvement in a crime.  The battered looking blade-  eyed Sharon tearfully told the  media that the Mexicans were  '���'ugly, creepy people" and advised all Canadians to holiday  in some other part ofthe worid.  It was at this point that I began  to understand exactly why the  slow moving Mexican justice  system had finally given in after  the story appeared in the Vancouver press.  Canadian and American  tourism is still Mexico's number  one industry. As a sometime  visitor to that strange land of  Pancho Villa and slums, I can  understand how the thought of  a few less suckers for the tourist  industry to prey on is enough to  move the rusty wheels of justice.  The fact still remains however,  that despite the good intentions  of the Department of Foreign  Affairs, it was the press and the  girl's father who initiated her  release.  . The Canadian government is  responsible for protecting the  lives and health of all Canadians  who wish to travel beyond our  borders. Diplomatic niceties and  good will between countries  should not be considered when a  citizen of this country is being  illegally detained in a foreign  land. If the current government  wants the support of the people,  it is time they started showing in  small ways such as this that each  of us, as individuals, is important  enough for Ottawa to take the  time and trouble to bother defending.  In order for a person to feel like  they are an integral part of their  country it is necessary for them to  realize that the country is willing  to defend them to the hilt.  Nationalism is built on pride.  Pride is built on a firm base of  security.  With the current Ottawa  government somehow it is almost  impossible to feel secure.  For some strange reason, a  great deal of news and/or information has come my way this  week, so in order to squeeze it  all in to the confines of the  column, I will attempt to be brief.  First, the reported spraying of  the power lines is becoming  something of an issue. Reports  from concerned people here reiterate my dead-end experience  with B. C. Hydro in their refusal  to give out information. The task,  therefore, of seeking the real and  absolute truth has been delegated  to our able editor for more exhaustive coverage.  Second, a personal apology to  Evans Hermon, whose information was cut two weeks ago  and shortened beyond comprehension last week.  The message is: local women  interested in a day Yoga class at  Evans' house should call her.  Evans' back class has room for  more participants, so those of  you who suffer from persistent  back pain should consider this  proven course of strengthening '  exercises for the bade. This,  again, at Evans' house, Thursday  at 1:00p.m.  A Homemaker service is being  .set up in the Harbour under the  directorship of Sue Kammerle.  The intent of the service is to  provide for those too sick or  physically handicapped to handle  the basics cf housekeeping.  Sponsored by Human Resources,  the program offers $3.00 per hour  to any sufficiently equipped  person willing to do housework  once or twice a week. If you are  interested, phone Sue at 3-2540.  In reporting the progress ofthe  Bananas Soccer team, Sue also  confided that though the talent is  there, team members are in the  dumps and generally suffering  from lack of direction. In; other  words, they desperately need a  coach I They will play here next  on Oct. 31st, 2:00 p.m. on the  school field. They assure a good  selection of tricks and treats, so  get out and support your local  team.  More on the Hallowed Eve-  on Friday, Oct. 29th, the Royal  Bank will be displaying pumpkins  carved by the Elementary School  students. The bank encourages  you to come in, have a cup of  coffee AND a treat, and cast  your ballot for the great pumpkin  of your choice. Prizes are annually awarded to the school  children, but this year a little  more community input is sought.  Also on this day is the first  district-wide Cross-Country meet  for Elementary Schools. The  meet begins at 12 noon, with  approximately 150 students participating from all elementary  schools. The public is welcome  to attend but is also cautioned  that during the race, access to  Lagoon Rd. will be closed and  marshallers will slow traffic-  coming into Madeira Park from  the Highway. If you are driving  in the Park between 12 and 1 on  Friday, you are asked to use  extreme caution.  A final brief notice (to be expanded next week) for those in  the community concerned with  fisheries and management of  local spawning streams. The  Salmon Enhancement frogram  is setting up Regional meetings  to gather public input on the  topics of how to better protect  resources, how to produce more  fish, how the Fisheries Dept. can  improve its performance.

Rationalization defeats arena  Editorial Note: lids article b an  unsolicited expression of Of_nlon.  Tiie Coast New* welcome* It, as  such, end will welcome oilier expressions of opfakn on thh controversial matter from iksreaders.  Editor:  Opinion by Bruce M. Wilson  Intelligence NOT Parochialism  Defeated Project  It was a display of intelligent,  rational thought that defeated the  proposed ice arena on the Recreational Center site. Many local  citizens myself included, were  appalled that a small, highhanded group would try to foist  on the public a scheme that would  prove costly at the outset and  continually require expensive  maintenance for re-surfacing ice,  servicing equipment and the  myriad other problems inherent  in establishing a cold-weather  facility in these temperate climes.  What we invisioned was something that once established could  be run self-sufficiently without  further loading our currently  over-weighted mill rate; as well  as a facility that could be enjoyed  Letters  Editor:  The Co-ordinating Council  wishes to acknowledge the recent  letter you published, and would  like to make the public aware  that the money raised for the  purchase of donated equipment  for St. Mary's Hospital is through  the joint efforts of all the six  Auxiliaries. Thank you.  Yours truly  E.Olson  President, Co-ordinating Council  by more than the small percentage that make use of an ice  arena. Because the proposal did  not meet my personal criteria I  voted no and I'm proud of it.  Now with cries of "parochialism" statements about "parochial feelings which so often  seemed in the past to supersede  the real issues" somebody is  trying to shove me into voting for  a tax increase, to pay for a community hall on D.L. 1506. Why  the hell, pray tell, would I want to  pay for another community hall  of the shoe box school of architecture when the Sunshine Coast  already contains at least 10 of  this type of hall counting schools,  Legions and existing community  halls not to mention several  banquet-type facilities annexed  to churches and restaruants. On  top of which this type of hall  must have been desgined before  the word acoustics was invented  as anyone who has attended a  public meeting or stage show in  one can verify. Unless the  speaker stands tall and yells long,  his words like insects will fly to  the upper-most corners where the  cobwebs trap and keep them forever, add to this the persistent  shuffle and squeal of folding  metal chairs, a few whispered  asides from your neighbours,  asides from your neighbours,  some coughing and a hungry  babys' cry and you'll understand yet another reason why  people leave public functions  less informed than they arrived.  Norm Watson of the Paries and  Recreation Commission is quoted  that he felt "a proper proposal  tied to a proper selling job has  never been tried". I cannot but  reply, "Now that you've tried a  PROPER selling job, (pun intended), how about that proposal?"  Although the persons involved  are to be commended for initiating a project which would  open the site to participation by  all age groups, I feel their proposal lacks in scope that which it  contains in intent. There is, after  all, only one D.L. 1506 open to  . us and it is our job and privilege  to use it in an imaginative and  .rewarding fashion that will  prove beneficial to the majority  of Sunshine Coast residents.'"  Election of School Trustees  Persons interested in becoming a School Trustee  are reminded that there are two seats for election  on November 20th.

Elves club to fill  underprivaliged stockings  The Elves Club was incorporated under the Societies Act  on St. Patrick's Day 1972. It is  an unselfish and concerted effort  by the entire community to see  that no one goes without at  Christmas time. The Elves make  up and distribute food hampers  containing turkeys, gifts, and toys  to the under privileged on the  Coast, from Port Mellon to  Egmont. Each Christmas Day,  they distribute rose-buds to the  patients at St. Mary's Hospital.  The Elves Club hope to expand  to help with food hampers  throughout the year as the need  arises.  A heavy work schedule has  been planned in preparation for  the forthcoming Christmas. One  suggestion was to hold a Christ  mas Dinner followed by musical  entertainment and gifts. This  would be a special effort for shut-  ins and the elderly. It pointed  out that the wealthiest person  can be the poorest person, if  they are lonely. It was thought  that a small gift, perhaps a plant  with a card, may be all that is  needed to let a lonely person  know that someone cares.  Mr. A. M. Sheppard of Selma  Park, was elected as Advisor-  Mediator, filling the vacancy left  by Rev. Williamson. A new  media minister was elected. The  rest of the Elves were allotted  specific assignments relating to  the project. Two Elves told the  meeting of an identical awe-  inspiring experience that they  both encountered.    They found  their homes increasingly rich in  suitable gifts for Elf Club donations, it seemed impossible to  give it all away. They wondered  if the old adage is true, that  "What flows out from us, must,  by universal law, return in multiples". The meeting was adjourned at 10:00 pm. Refreshments were then served.  If you wish to join the club, all  it costs is one penny a day for  each day of the year and one  food item for each month of the  year, NOTHING MORE. To contact us, either write to Elves  Club P.O. Box 1107, Gibsons,  B. C. or phone 886-9352 or 886-  2329, and ask for the Elf there.  Are there any volunteers out  there who are willing to donate  one day of their time to help us  during December?  Auxiliary gains new member  The regular monthly meeting  ofthe Sechelt Women's Auxiliary  to St. Mary's Hospital was held  on Thursday, Oct. 14th, at 2:00  p.m. in St. Hilda's Hall, with the  president, Mrs. Betty Monk, in  the chair. The 34 ladies in attendance presented a warm welcome  to a new member, Mrs. Elsie  McPherson and were pleased to  entertain a visitor, Mrs. Connie  Smart, from New Westminster.  All members were asked to  note the change in the date of the  November meeting. Due to the  holiday on November 11th, the  next meeting will be held at the  usual time and place but will be  advanced to November 18th.  Please be sure to mark that  alteration on your calendar.        ���  Any member who was unable  to attend the last meeting will  have the opportunity to put her  name on the 'Christmas Wishes'  list at the November 18th meeting. Have you signed yet? Let's  make it the longest list we have  ever had!  Several members have indicated the desire to attend the  Area Conference in Richmond on  October 26th, so we will be well  represented at that informative  and interesting session.  All members whose name is  not on the list to attend the  Annual Luncheon meeting in  St. Hilda's Hall on December 9th  at 11:00 a.m. are requested to  call Mrs. Betty Monk at 885-9310,  as tickets are by reservation only.  If you have any Nabob coupons  would you please arrange to give  them to Mrs. Mable McDermid.  We can use as many as we can  collect.  An excellent response was  made to the request for volunteers to assist at the 'Birthday-  Hallowe'en' party for the Extended Care patients which will be  held one evening during the final  week of October.  Mrs. Margaret Humm gave a  detailed account of the preparations for the annual Smorgasbord  at the Legion Hall on October  23rd. The doors will open at 6:30  p.m. to all those who have  decided to come for a fabulous  evening of entertainment, dining,  and dancing. In keeping with the  time of the year, the theme will  be "Oktober Fest" with appropriate decorations andfun.  Mrs. Dorothy Carter reported  that during September volunteers had spent a total of 248  hours in the various activities in  the hospital. Once again we need  more help in the Physio Department. Would any member who  can devote some time to this important phase of the W. A. work  please call Mrs. Hazel Seeton at  885-2909.  Remember that the . next  meeting will be held on Nov.  18th.

Plans are well under way for  the fourth annual Music and  Drama Festival to be held on the  Sunshine Coast. A meeting of the  committee was held on Tuesday,  October 19th at the home of Mary  Brooke of Halfmoon Bay. Present  at the meeting were Peter L.  Prescesky, Chairman; Aletta  Gilker, Secretary-Treasurer;  Mary Brooke, Mae Freer and  Florence Precesky, members of  the Music Syllabus Committee;  Jean Milward of the Dance Syllabus Committee. Representing  School District #46 was Principal  Frank Holmes of Pender Harbour  Secondary School. Coleen Elson,  the Principal of Gibsons Elementary School was unable to  attend.  A new feature of the festival  this year will be the addrton of  a Dance Festival to the music and, .  drama. This is being done with  the aid of Jean Milward, dancing  instructor at Gibsons. This  should prove to be an exciting  addition to an already vital and  strongly supported festival.  The dates for the 1977 festival  have been set for the week of  March 7-11, with the final concert  of Festival Award Winners  scheduled for Saturday, March  12th. The Music Syllabus is completed and is now ready for distribution. For information as to  where to obtain a Music Syllabus  call either 883-2584,885-9394, or  886-2555. The Music Festival of  the Sunshine Coast Music,  Drama, and Dance Festival is  affiliated with the B. C. Festival  Association and thence with the  Canadian Music Festival Association. Teachers with students  interested in going on to perform  in the B. C. Music Festival should  contact the Music Festival Committee for further information.  The quality of performance required for entry to the B. C.  Music Festival is very high.  In drawing up the Music Syllabus an attempt has been made  to provide a category for each  type of music that we know to  be going on on the Sunshine  Coast.     In previous years the  Committee has even accepted  entries which did not lit into any  of the listed categories.  The philosophy of the Festival  is stated at the beginning of the  Music Festival Syllabus:  "In Music Festivals, the object  is not to gain a prize, nor defeat  a rival, but to pass one another on  the road to excellence."

Of all the places where you can go to  save or borrow money, only Credit  ��� Unions are owned and controlled by the  members ��� customers just like you ���  who use the services.  You'd be surprised what a difference  that makes, in a Credit Union's  responsiveness to your needs, and  those of your community, as well.  As a member, you actually help elect the  board of directors, who are also  members just like you.  You help determine your Credit Union's  policies, and you share in its profits.  Because your Credit Union is  autonomous, it can be more responsive  to community needs. Your money is  likely to stay right there in the  community, assisting local business and  supporting vital community projects.  Your Credit Union is more likely to help  you when you need it, too.  In 40 years of Credit Union operation in  British Columbia, no member has ever  lost a cent of deposits.  Over 500,000 British Columbians ��� fully  one-quarter of the entire population of  the province ��� are presently members  of a Credit Union. That's a strong vote of  confidence.  Service  Credit Union where you live; an  industrial, commercial or professional  Credit Union where you work; or an  associational or parochial Credit Union  that's part of an organization or church  you belong to.  Simply come into the appropriate Credit  Union, fill out an application, make a set  deposit of $1 to $25 in a membership  share account, and you're in.  Security  Credit Unions operate under strict  provincial legislation, overseen by a  superintendent of Credit Unions in the  Attorney General's department. All  shares and deposits are guaranteed  without limit by the Provincial Credit  Union Share and Deposit Guarantee Fund.  Besides the usual financial services ���  savings accounts, term deposits and  certificates, chequing services, loans  and mortgages ��� Credit Unions may  offer many valuable ancillary services.  Among them: traveller's cheques, and  travel planning.to go with them;  insurance; income tax service;  consumer advice; debt counselling;  more convenient hours, often including  Saturdays; and more liberal loan and  mortgage policies.  Ask a friend about a nearby Credit Union  you can join. He'll be glad to help.  How to join  a credit union  Everyone in British Columbia is eligible.

The en  joyable evening was sponsored by the  Lions Club. Ian Corrance of Cosy Corners  Cameras took the picture.  Books: Wings of the North  Dick Turner  Wings of the North  Hancock House, 288pp.  Dick Turner has been a bush  pilot, trapper, prospector, guide,  Justice of the Peace, and just  about every other thing he could  be during his fifty years in the  Northwest Territories. He and  his family lived at Nahanni  Butte, near infamous Dead Man's  Valley, and this bock, his second  , novel, is a chronologically ordered string '��� of stories about his  ���' life in the north.  The book begins as the Turners  arrive in Vancouver in 1957,  when the author comes out to  get his pilots license. He is  looking forward to Vancouver,  and writes: "At least it will be  a change from the north where  the Liard ice is still three feet  thick, the days short and the  temperature is fcrty below."  We follow his improbable course  from the airport, into bars with  backslapping old friends, through  flying school, and bade north  again in the author's first air-,  craft.  It isn't hard to enjoy Turner  from the first. His years in  the north have armed him with a  healthy self deprecation, and he .  is often the butt of his own  jokes. He seems to be amazed  that he is doing any of the things  he writes about. The first solo  flight he makes is a success, and  like a little boy he says to his  wife that night:  "I soloed all by myself and Ed  says I did all right, I'm going to  be a pilot at last."  Indeed, much of the book  deals with the author's love of  flying. There are lots of stories  about near crashes, ' vicious  chinook winds, lakes that look  safe to land on, but am't, and just  general information about emergency repairs on aircraft engines.  These particular sections, I suspect, have a limited interest for  most readers, unless they too  pilot small planes.     But what  makes this book interesting, and  will preserve its value, is that it,  is an accurate account of contemporary life in the north of Canada.  The book opens a. door to a life  most Canadians, huddled dose  to the U. S. border, will never  see.  Still, the style of writing is  mushy to tramp through. One  must step past sentences like:  "Aircraft mechanics have warned  repeatedly against starting an  engine when the oil is too cold to  circulate. It is well to heed their  advice, for a pilot's life depends  on the trouble free operation of  his engine." And the dialogue is  often stiff, although it can convey  the camraderie it intends. While  his airplane is being repaired, he  thinks about borrowing one from  a friend.  "You have to be very good  friends indeed with the owner of  an aircraft to ask and get per-.  mission to borrow his airplane:  it is almost like asking him to  loan you his wife.''  Art Gordon owned a Super  Cub, CF-JMI, and said, "Sure  take it away Turner, and don't  bend it eh?"  "Don't you wony", I replied,  "I'll not put a scratch on it,  and when I bring it back it will be  a much improved airplane for  having been flown by an expert,  bless your soul, you big clumsy  ape."  "That's enough out of you  Turner,.get out of here before I  dust your crop for you."  When the autor isn't spinning  yarns about his bush pilot buddies, he turns his attention to  people who come up from the  south, most of whom he finds  foolish.

Serving   the    Sunshine Coast since 1964  by John Faustmann  campers, dressed like Davy  Crockett in an overloaded canoe,  perish on the Nahanni River, and  Turner leads die party to look  for the bodies. He saves, his  real scorn, however, for the  Federal Government. He grumbles about the government paying  southern kids to come north,, sit  in pickup trucks and count the  number cf fish that go by in a  stream. Hie tells of the bridge  ,.M?e_ilgov��TOnient built, at the cost  ' of three hundred thousand dollars, which collapsed the following year, as all the oWtimers -  knew it would. One great story  involves the highway the government was building to Inuvik.  They had hired people to clear  the brush away in various places  to create 'beauty spots' along the  roadside. A friend of Turner's  is the foreman on this job, and in  one instance:  "...he was instructed to,  quote: "Clear all die underbrush and other trees out and  leave only those, eleven spruce  trees." Unquote.  The friend replies: "There are  nine spruce trees there, the other  two are tamrack trees.''  "Oh. Well in that case cut out.  the spruce and leave the tamrack." And this was done."  Turner may seem eccentric to  the southern population who may  read this book. He is a contentious, daring fellow. He carves  his own path and thinks his own  thoughts, and when there is time  to sit around the stove at night,  maybe waiting for a blizzard to  blow itself out, he has a lot of  stories to tell. He reverently;  approaches the laftd he lives in, .i  a place in the world he has come !  to care for deeply. Hie knows and  respects the wilderness that  remains an illusion to so many of  the rest of us, and he seems to be  a man who is sure cf what he is.

Coast News, October 26,1976.  It is with pride and gratitude  that I write these few lines. Pride  in seeing so many members getting more involved in the happenings, and gratitude to all who  have contributed in so many ways  to make our Hall the success it  has been so far. People who are  not members of our Organization  have been so wonderful in their  contributions tohelp us out.  One instance, and 1 don't intend to let it pass, is of a very  charming and gracious lady who  donated the monstrous vegetable  marrow and pumpkin to us. This  lady is Mrs. Kay Waterhouse of  Reid Road, here in Gibsons and  I guess you saw her picture in  the Coast News of Oct. 19th displaying her 47 pound marrow.  This is a sure sign that on the  Sunshine Coast we do things in  a big way. I understand that Mr.  and Mrs. Waterhouse are celebrating their 28th Wedding Anniversary on Oct. 29th, so as  President of Branch #38, may I  offer on behalf of the Member- ���  ship and myself, our heartiest  congratulations to these wonderful people and may you enjoy  many, many more.  Len and Gladys Coates found  out that they could not eat all  that vegetable marrow so they  brought it down to the Carpet  Bowling session on Thursday and  distributed it to as many members as needed some, so you see,  Kay, you made an awful lot of  people happy.  We got a very pleasant surprise also in the donation of a  beautiful Hi-Fi for our Hall from  Ed and Molly Conner. So while  Carpet Bowling we had music  from Hawaii, Sweden, with  Polkas and a real good time was  had by all. Maybe some of you  are not aware of the fact by Ed  Connor was the man in charge or  should I say Superintendent,  it sounds more business like to  give a title to someone who really  deserves it. Thanks again Ed  and Molly for your wonderful  gesture. I am sure we will get  many happy hours out of your  contribution.  Another person I must recognize for the work he has done on  the building of the Hall, his wonderful cash donations, and now to  top it off he is going to contribute a Snooker Table to us. His  name is Julius Sorenson and believe me they don't come any  better or bigger hearted than  Julius. We called him "Old  Faithful" while we were building  the Hall because he was there  every day, rain or shine, come  hell or high water. You could and  Film society  by Keith Wallace  "Boccaccio 70", a 1962 production is the Kwahtahmoss  Film Society's presentation for  Oct. 27th. The film offers three  farcical playlets by three leading  Italian directors...Frederico  Fellini, Lucino Visconti and  Vittorio De Sica. Each projects  what the Italian view of morality  could be by the year 1970, but  the director's certainly approach  it tongue-in:cheek.  The first contribution is Fel-  lini's, a fantasy about a terribly  prudish gentleman (Peppino De  Fillppo) and his confrontation  with a newly erected billboard  sign of a busty blonde (Anita  Ekberg) advertising the virtues  of drinking milk. The hero makes  every attempt with no success  to remove this obscene sight, and  eventually his mind blows the  situation  all  out of proportion  when he sees the giant lady begin to wink and come alive. The  music of Nino Rota complements  all.  Visconti has the second vignette with a sophisticated fable  about a wealthy and beautiful  countess (Romy Schneider) who  is quite accepting of her husband's (Thomas Millan) public  enjoyment of call-girls, except  for the fact that they get paid and  she doesn't. Consequence has  this lady asking for a cash payment whenever the count comes  to bed. The beautifully coloured  and studied camera work focuses  in on all the expensive things in  life.  The third playlet of De Ska's  is a bawdy sort of low comedy  with Sophia Loren as a shooting  gallery attendant who occasionally raffles off herdiarms.  COZY CORNER CAMERAS  CAMERA  AND  DARKRM.

The carpet in the  lounge will be installed next,  week, so the Snowflake Room is  fast approachingcompletion.  That busy fellow who has been  at the rink almost every evening  lately is Terry Conner, putting  the finishing touches to the  mamoth paint job he and his crew  have done this summer.  Verda has ordered samples of  all sizes of curling sweaters which  should be here within the week.  They will be on display at the  rink and Verda will be happy to  take your order. It is a perfect  opportunity to solve your Christmas gift problems, so. get your  order in early.  The original eight teams in the  Hangover League are back this  year. Their season begins on  Sunday, Oct. 31st. at 10:00 a.m.  Others have shown an interest in  joining and the boys are attempting to get another league going  at 1:00 p.m. on Sundays. If you  would like to join them, sign the .  sheet posted at the rinks. Sorry  girls--You're excluded!  A late flash from Art Craze informs us that the Men's Monday  night league is full but he is still  looking for mixed teams to fill  Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.  There is room for more ladies on  Monday afternoon ($32. per  season) and on Monday evening.  Whether or not you have completed a registration form, call Art  if you would like to curl at any of  the above times. Ladies may call  Marlene Bjornson at 886-7037  for up-to-date information on  Ladies curling.

Copland  Municipal Clerk  Bowlers strike out in Chillawack  Six of us went to Parklanes in  Chilliwack last Sunday to take  part in their 20 Game Marathon.  None of us took any money as the  competition was really stiff and  the High Average bowlers were  . bowling very well. It seems that  when one or two of them get  going they pull the rest of the  good bowlers along. With First  Prize money of $700.00 a marathon like this brings out a lot of  bowlers with 260-270 averages.  Anyway, it was a good tournament with lots of good high  games and we thoroughly enjoyed  it and can't wait for next year  to do it again.

Coast News, October 26,1976.  All of us who live along the shores of the inland waterways of British  Columbia may find that our lives will be affected by the projected  passage of the giant oil tankers on their way from the oil fields of  Alaska to the refineries in Washington. The possibility of an accident  in these narrow waters with those giant ships is one that must haunt  all who contemplate it. The following is a report of a conference held  last month at the Provincial Emergency Program College in Victoria  which was attended by A. D. McPhee, Emergency Programs Coordinator. It must give us all pause for thought.  THE OIL-SPILL THREAT  ON AND OFF SHORE  During the third week of September, there was convened at the  Provincial   Emergency   Program  College in Victoria, the first of  what should beoome a series of  courses to learn about the problems of spilled oil (and also of  other hazardous chemicals) and  what   can  be   done   to  control  and clean up such spills.    This  introductory course was attended  by representatives of a variety of  government and other agencies,  and  in  addition,  lectures  were  provided from the oil industry,  the University, and producers of  equipment for clean-up.   Among  the  dozen   P.E.P.  co-ordinators  attending was  Arthur McPhee,  from the Sunshine Coast, and he  indicates that the four days was  indeed well spent, even if a lot  was "found wanting", especially  in the area of legislation governing responsibility for both preventive and clean-up action.  Subjects on the very comprehensive agenda included: the  characteristics of oil, and its  varieties, and the effects these  have on the environment. A review of the various equipment -  booms, sorbents, chemical  agents, and an assortment of  equipment used to recover spilled  oil. The planning that should be  done, and the documentation  that must be part of any detection  of a spill and the clean-up operation. A review of what the oil  industry, in its various organizations (such as production, pipeline and other carriers, refiners,  and   marketing   agencies)   have  This is Your Life  Horoscope for the next week  By TRENT VARRO  ARIES - March 21  to April 20  Conditions are VERY aggressive  in the sign of Aries right now. It  would be wise to slow a bit and  take a long range viewpoint. You  may tend to irritate others. Be  careful!  TAURUS - April 21 to May 20  If your birthday falls between  April 21 and May 5th, take things  kind of easy this week. For other  Taurus individuals everything  should be "business as usual" in  your daily affairs.  GEMINI - May 21 to June 20  A letter, or communication from  afar may play a large part in your  life during the next week. Seek  knowledge and understanding,  and you'll gain greatly by this.  CANCER - June 21 to July 21  Things are REALLY good for  Cancer persons right now. You  have the chance to achieve your  "dreams of success" if you will  only get down to brass tacks and  THINK!  LEO - July 22 to August 21  You may be "pushed" into doing  something you don't want to do,  or something that you don't  believe in. Don't let this sway  your high ideals or faith in human  understanding.  VIRGO - August 22 to Sept. 21  Astrological aspects are setting  themselves up right now to bring  you a great deal of benefit. This  should be one of the "better"  times of your life. Make the most  of it!  LIBRA   -   Sept  22   to   Oct.   22  Aquarius and Tarus individuals  will probably have a lot to do with  your daily life this coming week.  Be wise and listen! They may  have much to tell you.  SCORPIO - Oct. 23 to Nov. 21  Conditions are "good, good,  good" if you are good yourself.  There's no such thing as a  shallow Scorpio person, and you  are either angel or devil and right  now is the time to prove your  worth.  SAGITTARIUS Nov 22-Dec 20  If news should come this week  that shocks you, remain calm and  don't become emotionally upset.  There are some fine aspects  coming up for Sagittarius persons  in the near future.  CAPRICORN - Dec. 21 to Jan. 19  Conditions this week in Capricorn are much the same as they  are the sign of Virgo, with one  big exception, that you don't need  to 'slow down'. Agressive action  is favoured.  AQUARIUS - Jan. 20 - Feb. 18  Don't worry so much, and you'll  make things a lot easier for both  yourself and those around you.  The slight trouble will clear itself  quickly and bring much tranquility.  PISCES - Feb. 19 to Mar. 20  You are going to find "the  bluebird of happiness" right in  your own backyard. Older persons in this sign will achieve  something special.  (Copyright 1976 by Trent Varro.

Finally, some  comprehensive materials by  speakers who had actually been  involved in on-scene reporting on  recent oil-spills:  1. By Canadian Coast Guard,  the U.S. oil barge which sank in  Howe Sound in 1972, and the  efforts to clean this small spill;  2. By Environment Canada, Environment Protection Service, the  large tanker spill off la Coruna,  Spain, 1973, and the most recent  spill from a refinery storage tank  in Mizushima, Japan (which  smeared hundreds cf miles ofthe  Inland Sea in Japan, a topography  quite similar to our own).  3. By Trans Mountain Pipelines,  a report with slides of the rupture  of a main pipeline to the U.S.A.  just a few miles into Washington  state last year - and which is almost entirely restored to its original condition, with the addition of  some access roads which had to  be built. All of these incidents  involved an enormous expenditure of money and effort - over  SI 60 million by the government of  Japan, with over 200,000 men  being involved for several months, and not yet completed in the  case of the Mizushima spill,  which happened in December  1974.  Among the interesting items  for local authorities were:  1. Lists - hopefully complete -  of facilities available in our area  of equipment which could be used  to contain and clean up oil-  spills either off-shore or on our  beaches or coastline; The Canadian Coast Guard has a considerable quantity of equipment at  its base in Victoria, which could  be dispatched very quickly.  There is a special unit in Burrard  Inlet, with both government and  industry contributing, (remembering that there are refineries  there). We Have, dose to home,  a Class B (i.e. second largest  in a series), kit provided by the  B. C. Petroleum Association, and  in the custody of the Shell Oil  representative at Gibsons, which  includes 1,000 feet of boom, some  boxes of sorbents, and cases of  miscellaneous tools and rubber  clothing. There are quite a few  of these "kits" on the B. C. coast-  Nanaimo and Campbell River  both have the larger Class A,  and Powell River has one similar  to ours. It is also noteworthy  that one of the most reputable  manufacturers of booms and recovery equipment is located in  North Vancouver.  Of particular interest to us on  this coast was a half-day spent  with Mr. Don Adams, perhaps  the foremost authority on the subject of cleaning sea-birds fouled  with oil, and some of the highlights of that session are noted  herewith:  With the best will in the world,  the success rate of cleaning birds  is. not very high.

Box 167 Gibsons, B.C.  886-2642  the obvious outer fouling, and the  likely exhaustion of the bird,  there are yet further problems,  the effect of the penetration of  cold water to the bird's body, and  the fouling by ingestion of oil  of the wonderful God-given distilling plant which is the lining of  the stomach, which makes possible the production of fresh  water frpm the salt water which is  taken in by the beak.  There is only one commercially  available product recommended  for cleaning oil from the bird's  feathers - plain Ivory bar soap  (neither the liquid nor the flakes  of the same name, nor any of  the other soaps or detergents  have been found satisfactory!).  It may take several (5 or 6) washings to clean the feathers, but  avoid any rough handling or  heavy pressure, to prevent damage to the delicate arrangement  of tiny "hooks" on the feathers,  upon which their proper functioning depends. Rinse thoroughly. Be careful of sharp beaks;  as the bird revives, it may beoome  agressive, so tape the beak shut,  avoiding putting the tape over  the nostrils. Drying is best  done under a heat lamp, but a  warm air blower can be used. Be  careful with the used washing  water 1  Then it is necessary to make  the bird take fresh water, and  probably the best way to do this  is with a syringe (about 20 cc)  and a few inches of soft rubber  tubing. Force the tubing right  down the throat, and make sure  the water gets down there.'  When the feathers are dry, the  bird, unless injured, is ready  to go.  It is very obvious that prevention is much better than any available cure when it comes to oil-  spills, and much effort is being  given to this aspect. However,  jurisdiction between various  governmental departments and  agencies leaves much to be desired, and no one authority has  complete responsibility at any  given incident. If the spill is  at sea, Transport Canada (Coast  Guard) has the main authority,  but any prosecution will likely  be under the Fisheries Act, administered by another department! As soon as the oil readies  the shore, other departments and  levels of government become involved, and responsibility devolves on those in the best position to get quickly into action to  control, contain and clean up.  Priorities agreed were as follows:  1. If applicable, have the spilling  stopped, by warning responsible  persons or plugging holes.  2. Save human life endangered  by the spill. Warn people in the  vicinity, stop all smoking or use  of naked lights, call fire department if any fire present or likely.  Shut off all ignition sources.  3. Contain the spill, by surrounding with logs, special booms,  commercial sorbents, straw  bales, or if on land, earth dikes  (berms), sand, etc.  4.

Oil  spills are very messy, very expensive to clean up, and almost  always quite ooneoetaary. But  having happened, tiie more  quickly contained the better.  If you wish more information on  the subject of oil spills, or of  environmental protection in more  general areas, the Environmental  Protection Service has well-  staffed offices at Capilano 100  in Park Royal, West Vancouver,  V7T 1A2, with Mr. Ian Robertson  as the Regional Environmental  Emergency Co-ordinator.
