 ufS$P~        r-  Illegal Business charge  A letter from a group of Sechelt businessmen sparked fire  into Thursday nights Regional \ Board meeting. The letter  protested "illegal business operations in areas zoned Rl, R2  and agricultural" and accused the board of "turning a blind  eye" to the situation. The letter signed by Peninsula Motors  of Sechelt, Sechelt Esso Service, Sechelt Shell Service, Standard  Motors of Sechelt and Brian's Auto Body, reads in part, "in  order to operate legitimate businesses on the Sechelt Peninsula, we were required to locate them in areas already zoned  commercial; we were required to abide by all provincial regulations which apply to our type of business, i.e., building regulations, fire regulations, extra taxes for commercial zoning,  increased utility rates and Workers Compensation, etc.; we  believe that competition is healthy, however we also believe  that anyone operating a similar (business in this area should  be required to abide by the same yules and regulations we are."  Division Manager L. R. Reesor explains  how the pollution situation which has  delayed   Pacific   Rim   Aggregates   con  struction of an overflow discharge  has been resolved. Regional Director  Barry Pearson listens attentively.  "When we went into business", said Mrs. Mattishaw of  Brians Auto Body, "we were  forced into a piece of property  that was completely unsuited to  us, that was the only piece available...as it stands now, I would  be further ahead to sell my business; move out onto agricultural  land; buy ten acres and operate  out there moonlighting until  someone complains."  The letter specifically referred  to Peter Bandi's Brougham Auto  Body, situated in an Rl Zone at  the top of Davis Bay hill and the  Sechelt Collision enterprise which  operates out of a barn in the R2  ��� Zoned area of West Sechelt.  Planner Paul Moritz stated  7LC.B.C. records indicate these  businesses were indeed being run  and accounted for two jobs, per  month each through the North  Vancouver office, he contacted  Mr. Bandi who said that he,  (Mr. Bandi), employs no one else  in his operation and has been  operating for some years. Records show that Mr. Bandi has  been paying commercial water  rates since 1972 and that he. may  indeed have' a non-conforming  property lease claim which would  protect his operation under law.  The other operation will, however, have to go.  Director Barry Pearson expressed concern over the lack of  available commercial and industrial land, "We're seven to eight  years behind schedule right  now," he said, "and that's the  whole problem." "You can't  tell someone to move out tomorrow without somewhere to go,  that would just be an extra hardship...if we tell someone to get  out of where they are right now,  where do we send them?" He  continued, "I think property must  be set aside for commercial and  industrial usage to give people  a choice!"    7  "That's a problem that we,  (the Regional Board) will haye to  contend with," countered Director Mulligan, "give them the opportunity to relocate elsewhere,  if they fail to comply, shut them  down!"  Director Hoemberg said they  should, "enforce the bylaw,  that's what its there fori..the bylaw has the provision to take them  to the courts...the point is these  people are in an illegal situation  and we cannot condone that."  The regional board will enforce  their bylaws.

Police news  Regional Board News  i  Pollution controlled  School Boarrfiat Pender     Budget  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District's planning committee  withdrew its objections to a  Pollution Control Board permit  allowing Pacific Rim Aggregates  to construct an over-flow discharge from their settling pond  into the nearby ocean. Mr. L. R.  Reesor, the company's division  manager, assured the representatives that the plant is presently  operating under water-recycling  conditions and must meet level  A requirements of less than SO  parts per million residue in water  in their discharge.  His presentation included  crystal clear samples taken from  the pond and the pipeline mea  suring 6.8 and 5.2 parts per  million respectively as compared  to 0.8 in ordinary tap water.  Explaining that the Pollution  Control Board had asked the  company to apply for an 'amendment to the original bylaw,.Mr.  Reesor continued that the overflow would be used only in times  of emergency i.e. excessive rainfall or plant breakdown and to  prevent destruction by erosion  of the settling pond. "We have  been monitoring the flow since  September 7th and there has  been no discharge at all," he  said. The committee withdrew  its objections providing the outfall be utilized only under overflow conditions.  Secret Cove approved  A proposed subdivision and  marina development which a  fortnight ago was voted down by  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District met with approval  this week after the developer  reduced the number of dwellings  in the plan to the less than 30  unit figure suggested by the  board.  The regular density of subdivision housing could not be  initially approved because of the  steepness of the site therefore  the matter was taken to public  hearing for consideration and  recommendation. Of major concern to board members and residents of the area were condominium-type housing, destruction  of the terrain and adequate  water supply; as the project  manager had tested a well to  38 gallons per minute, (adequate  for a 100 house development),  reduced the number of units to  29 single family dwellings and  allowed for 30 foot clearances  between buildings which could  be left in their natural state, the  board felt he had met his end of  the agreement and unanimously  voted approval in principle to the  project.  Two residents of the Cove who  spoke against the development  seemed to feel that even Director  Mulligan's humorously suggested six houses in the area  would . meet with their disapproval.  Protection  With a promise of "You'll  be hearing a lot more of this.",  Area 'A' representative Jack  Paterson gave your reporter a  copy of the following letter at  ���theclose of this week^sre^onal  board meeting; The letter was  addressed to Regional Board  Planner, Paul Moritz.  "Area "A's" Area Planning  Committee would like to have the  inter-tidal and below-tidal waters  of the Skookumchuck area declared a 'marine preserve' -not  to ban fishing; but to prevent  despoliation and removal of the  very rare denizens of marine  life by divers and by visitors  to Skookumchuck Park (the red  coral; the pink, white, and grey  sponges; the coloured sea-snails;  the rare anemonies and sea-  cucumbers, etc.)  There is some urgency as this  is a newly-publicized area of  interest and will be on T.V. and  a book is now in circulation.  We'd like a simple petition, as  above, to go through the board,  and to both governmental Environment Departments. Could  you write up a petition or resolution for us as soon as possible?''  The regular. School Board  meeting held on Thursday, February 10th, took place in one of  the portable classrooms of the  temporary school in Pender Harbour. It featured a report from  the staff and students of Pender  harbour Secondary and a report  from some staff members of  'Ma^eiiaPark'EiemehtafySchool.  One of the highlights of the  staff report from Pender Harbour  was the totem pole carving program. Industrial Arts instructor  Bruno Dombrowski introduced  carver Lyle Forbes who volunteered his assistance when the  fire at Pender Harbour Secondary  School left the students without  a shop for the industrial arts  program.  Mr. Forbes gave the meeting  a brief explanatory background  on totem poles. His interest in  them, he said, had come from a  childhood spent all over the B.C.  coast with a father who was a  logger in most of the major camps  on the coast. Forbes paid tribute  to Doug Fielding of Jervis Tugs  Ltd. who had donated the logs  for the project.  Principal Holmes of Pender  Harbour Secondary in his remarks to the meeting said that  students and staff were respon  ding well to the challenge of  coping with the lack of adequate  school facilities. Holmes said  that the second semester planning was well under way. The  principal said that the results of  7the semester system, instituted  ���in September 1976, were extremely satisfactory considering  ��� me hardships caused by thefire;-;  The meeting also learned that  the new school would be 5,000  square feet larger than the previous school. The community  had committed $67,000 which  was the equivalent, of 1,500  square feet. Directly attributable  to the community effort are two  seminar rooms adjacent to the  library, the library itself is double  the size it would have been, a  kitchen area is available, and 400  square feet has been added onto  the band room which will enable  it to be used as a community  resource area.  The report from the staff of  Madeira Park Elementary School  was introduced by Principal Vern  Wishlove and presented by staff  members Mrs. L. Tilento, Joe  Harrison, and Wendy Skapski.  It pinpointed the work done at  a recent in-service day wherein  the staff studied the Language  Arts work being done by the students of the school.  The net estimated budget  presented by the School Board for  the coming year will be just  under five million dollars. The  estimated mill rate will be 44.93  which represents an increase of  4.02 over last year's mill rate. 7  School Board Treasurer Roy  Mills pointed out that since the  ���basic levy set-by the -government^  had increased by five mills, in  effect the 4.02 increase locally  indicated that the local board had  actually cut one mill off the local  cost component.  Gibsons police this week report  a rash of minor thefts from parked  cars and trucks in the area.  Favoured objects taken are car  batteries and C.B. radios.  On the 10th of February Mr.  Williams had a battery stolen  from his car in the B. C. ferry  parking lot. Blair Skagfjord of  Sechelt also had the battery  stolen from his 1964 Ford which  was parked across the road from  the ferry. The battery was taken  sometime during the night of  Febiuary7?-10th. A foiird battery  was stolen ;from Fieldler Bros.  Contracting on North Road, this  time from a caterpillar tractor. In  connection with this case a juvenile has been apprehended.  College courses coming  Adult Education Co-ordinator  Karin Hoemberg reported to the  School Board meeting held on  Thursday, February 10th, that a  recent questionnaire concerning  the offering of college credit  courses in this area through  co-operation with Capilano College was not successful. The  questionnaire was designed to  discover how the community  felt about the college courses  which would cost the district  about $1,500 each for a two-year  period.  School Trustee Peter Precesky  moved that $3,000 be placed in  the budget for two college courses  by way of a trial project. The  motion was seconded by Trustee  Kay Dombrowski and carried  over the opposition of Trustee  Don Douglas and Maureen Clayton who felt that it was an area  where some cost restraint should  be exercised.  In other school board work it  was moved by Trustee Jo-ann  Rottluff and seconded by Trustee  Douglas that the school board  should encourage implementation  of a program of Industrial First  Aid in local schools. It is the  intention to have a qualified  teacher in each school as soon  as possible.   The motion passed  Davis Bay Enterprise  fails to get approval  An application to rezone the  lot immediately adjacent to the  Whittaker Block in Davis Bay,  housing the Rental Shop and formerly the S.C.R.D. office, on  the Sechelt side to Commercial  2 was rejected when the majority  of the Sunshine Coast Regional  District's planning committee  felt the stated purpose, a marine  parts, repair and sports outlet,  failed to comply with the board's  interpretation of C2, (tourist  oriented), development.  Representative Hoemberg, one  of the major objectors, felt a  business of this nature would receive most of its business by  automobile with only a very small  percentage of . breakdowns  occuring at the nearby Davis Bay  wharf and could be just as easily  located in a 'core area' such as  downtown Sechelt thereby contributing to a strong central core.  After lengthy deliberations  which touched on the dangers of  creating a 'ribbon type' development along the highway by approving the presence of what is  not strictly a 'local commercial'  enterprise, (drawing its trade  from the immediate area), the  board voted to refuse rezoning  with only Representative Pearson  in favor. "I think we've made a  serious mistake on this Davis  Bay question," he stated.  Native  Studies  School Board Chairman Celia  Fisher and Trustee Maureen  Clayton lave been named as  the school board's representatives on the Joint Feasibility  Committee to be set up in conjunction with the Sechelt Indian  Band to study the implementation  of the program of Native Indian  Studies. It is hoped that the projected course will be offered on  the land belonging to local Indians at Deserted Bay on Jervis  Inlet.  The school board unanimously  voted money in this year's budget  for a co-ordinator for the program  if and when it can be implemented.  Nick Husby of Fletcher Road in  Gibsons had a 23-channel C.B.  radio stolen from his car which  was also parked at the ferry  terminal. R. L. Richardson had  a similar radio, value $150.00,  stolen from his tug boat at the  Government Wharf.  , Gibsons Building Supply  were the victims of the largest  theft when three V.H.F. Aettone  radios valued at $900. each, were  stolen from three trucks which  were parked at the pit on Veterans Road. r .,.>���..Vv  advises citizens to keep their  cars locked and take the additional precaution of recording the  serial number of any C.B. radio  in their possession.  Mill Close  possible  A possible shut-down of the  Port Mellon plant of Canadian  Forest Products has been averted, at least temporarily. The  shut-down was threatened because of a lack of chemicals used  in its operation, namely chlorine,  caustic soda, and sodium chlorate, occasioned by the continuing strike in Squamish and  North Vancouver of members of  the Oil, Chemical, and Atomic  Workers and the Pulp and Paper  Workers of Canada against the  chemical plants which supply  the local mill with the chemicals  essential to its operation.  Mill Manager Bill Hughes  told the Coast News this week  that a supply of the requisite  chemicals is coming in by tank  truck and that with the supply  presendy available it is possible  to project normal operations of  the mill into the week of February  20th. "We are not directly involved in the negotiations that  are taking place," said Hughes,  "but it is my understanding that  they are still going on. If they  are brought to a successful  conclusion shortly we will be  able to continue normal operations. If, however, the strike is  protracted we will have to close  down."  The Port Mellon mill is the  largest employer on the Sunshine  Coast.  Local rescued at sea  Reminiscent of the recent incident which nearly claimed  the life of local man Roger Skidmore, the fish boat Helena  B. is dramatically pictured here just before sinking  during the summer of 1974     Another local man, Ted  Strom was rescued just moments before this picture  was taken. The Helena B. was returning from Rivers  Inlet with a cargo of sockeye salmon when she sank.  Local man, Roger Skidmore  was rescued by the Canadian  Coast Guard last week in a  bizarre incident on the high  seas. Skidmore's fish boat  sank and he made his way  successfully to another sinking  boat from which the crew had  already been rescued in order  to use the radio.  It may be the first time in  marine history that the Coast  Guard twice in one day saved  men from the same sinking  boat.  Rescued along with Skidmore  in the second rescue was the  ship's dog.  on the Sunshine Coast ev 2.  Coast News, February 15,1977.  ���-'> ***&*$  Box 460, Gibsons .

Improvement  It seemed quite apparent at the meeting held by the school board in Pender  Harbour Secondary last week that staff  and students are coping well with their  educational difficulties. There was a  cheerful and harmonious tone which ran  through the presentations made by the  school principal, his staff, and the students of the school.  In recent years the educational situation at Pender Harbour Secondary has  not been a particularly happy one and it  is heartening to note the obvious im  provement in morale of those who work  there. Due credit must go to Supt.  John Denley and principal Frank Holmes,  along with the staff and students and  community as a whole, for the healthy  change that has taken place there.  In fact throughout the school district  there seems to be an improved and harmonious atmosphere with teachers and  students working more happily than  heretofore and good-natured co-operation  prevalent at the meetings of the school  board itself. It's a grand thing to see.  Well done, all.  Gibsons   Council  The residents of regional board Area  "E" are understandably irate about the  recent expansion ofthe village of Gibsons  which saw part of their district incorporated into the village.   They are irate because representations against the enlargement ofthe municipality made by them  to the provincial government and to the  village of Gibsons seem to have been  ignored.    They are irate because their  representative   at   the   regional   board,  Ed Johnson, refused to meet with them  at two public meetings and failed even to  have his alternate attend either meeting.  They point out that the residents of the  village of Gibsons pay higher taxes than  anyone   else   on   the   Sunshine   Coast.  Largely, they say because ofthe intransigence with which the village continues  to refuse to join in a co-operative way  with the regional board services.   They  ask what Gibsons is about, enlarging its  boundaries   when   there   is   much   undeveloped  land  within   existing   boundaries.  In making their case, the residents of  Area "E" note that throughout the  region co-operation seems finally to be  flowering everywhere except in the village of Gibsons. They wonder if the  people of Gibsons are being well-served  by a council which they feel is more  interested in empire-building than it  seems to be getting the best possible  services for its citizens at the lowest  possible rate.  From the letters to the editor column  this week it would appear that at least  some of the citizens of the municipality  are well satisfied with the work of their  council, but nonetheless in several important areas, notably garbage, water  and recreation, the village .now seems to  be lagging behind the rest ofthe region.  Perhaps it's time we had a clear statement from the village council explaining  the philosophy which has it decide to  refuse co-operation with so many regional  services. Their reasons may be good  ones. We would like to hear them.  Education  We are led to believe that the Social  Credit government in Victoria is in favour  of less government control and personal  initiative and so forth and yet they seem  determined to. do the reverse in the field  of education. Everybody who ever deals  with bureaucracy does so reluctantly and  with a sigh of relief when they are done  with it. Why Education Minister Pat  McGeer seems determined to put education control back as firmly as possible in  the hands ofthe bureaucrats is something  of a mystery.  That it will do no good for education  is a virtual certainty. The position taken  by the B. C. Teachers Federation is a  difficult one to disagree with. Each child  is individual in abilities and background  and only the teacher who is in daily contact with him is in any position to deal in  a human and intelligent fashion. The  huffing and puffing of far-away bureaucrats is merely a counter-productive  nuisance and if the Socreds are to be  consistent with their stated philosophy  as little of the decision-making which is  to effect the day-to-day work of the classroom should be done in Victoria as  possible.  ...from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  Total precipitation for January including snow was 3.56 inches of which 10.7  was snow.

Clayton  photo, courtesy Elphinstone  Pioneer Museum.  L.R. Peterson  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  My first car was a well-used  Morris Oxford which I bought in  Montreal in 1956. I learned to  drive by driving illegally and  badly around the manic streets of  Montreal for a few weeks then  drove up to the Licence Bureau  to take the test. It was pretty  slack in those days. Short of  blindness there really wasn't  much you could do to fail. I  drove a bored French-Canadian  inspector around one city block  making four right turns on two of  which I bumped the pavement  with my rear wheel." Trembling  with the foreknowledge of failure  I arrived haphazardly back at the  front door. He said, "O.K.  we'll send you the licence. It'll  take ten days. Watch those  corners, eh?" As he walked up  the walk to the office door I  drove away.  Exultant and relieved I took the ;  first corner I came to like Stirling  Moss. My door wasn't properly  closed. It opened and I fell  halfway through still clutching  the steering wheel and ran the  car into a parked truck. It was  the beginning of a long series  of comic automobile disasters.  Take for example the summer  of my first great love.   I was on  the verge of going to work as  a teacher, having just completed  teacher's college.    I was nearly  penniless but I had a few dollars,  enough for a visit to my sweetheart in Toronto with a couple of  days of that far-ago Labour Day  weekend thrown in at Stratford,  Ontario to see the plays.   I was  to catch the afternoon train and  should have, oh I should have.  Instead I came across a Morris  Minor convertable  sitting  in  a  used car lot.   On the windshield  it said   '49 Morris,   $50.00.     I  made  some   rapid  calculations.  I could just about make it. Wouldn't it be fine to sweep up to my  lady's place in a surprise convertable - however tiny and decrepit. Romantic fool that I was I  was already driving her through  the  stately willows  of  Straford  with the top down in the sunshine. What bliss! In a frenzy of  activity I bought the Minor, got  the forms and filled her up.  I phoned the lady - it had to  be collect, it really did. I wanted  the car to be a surprise so just  told her not to meet the train. She  was puzzled but I sounded happy  and excited, was coming somehow, and she was pleased.  Very much a man of the world  and with my usual endless optimism I set off in afternoon sun  shine towards Toronto. In eastern Canada the weather in the  summertime can change with  dramatic suddenness. It did. I  was barely off Montreal Island  when great dark thunder clouds  began to roll across the Lake of  Two Mountains. Large preparatory drops began to fall. "Ahh,"  I thought, "it's time to put the  hood up." It turned out to be a  primitive concertina type of arrangement that you hauled over  you manually and it was very,  very rusty. I grunted and strained and laboured and the rain  intensified.  Finally with a tremendous  effort I hauled it upright and  paused for breath before I pulled  it forward and fastened it snugly  over me. At the precise moment  a tremendous gust of wind came  off the lake and ripped the rotten  old canvas off the front part of  the frame and sent it billowing  behind the car.  I has occasionally been said of  me that I never know when to  quit and it is an old failing,  I'm afraid. I should of course  have gone back to Montreal.  There was still time to catch the  train but admitting defeat is not  one of my strong points. I pressed on to Toronto. The car's  top speed was just under forty-  five miles an hour, the windscreen wipers didn't work, the  rain pelted down through the useless frame, the cursed canvas  billowed ludicrously behind the  car and I peered through the rain  on my glasses and the rain on  the windshield. It looked like  a long drive.  It was nearly ten at night  when I pulled into a gas station  in Kingston. "Fill her up and  check the oil," was all I offered  to the pump jockey who was  standing under his sou'wester  and peering with total incredulity  at the apparition that had arrived  out of the night, and I splashed  off to some place warm.  From the cafe I phoned the  lady - again collect. "I'm in  Kingston," I said. "It'll take a  little longer than I thought."  This time she was definitely  more puzzled than pleased.  The rain had stopped by the  time I had eaten. Now I was  just cold. Wearing every stitch  of dry clothing I possessed I  pressed on, indomitable. It was  on a newly-completed section of  Highway 401 about midnight a  few miles from Belleville and near  nothing else that the car seized  up completely.   Let me tell you  it was far from easy to flag down  a car on a deserted stretch of  Highway 401 at midnight in the  wilds of Ontario. I managed it  and was driven to an allnight  gas station in Belleville. The tow-  truck took just about the last  of my money. "It's a cracked  block," the man said. "You've  got no water in her and you've got  no oil." I guess the sou'wester  back in Kingston had put some  gas in and then rushed off to  tell his friends about the madman  who'd arrived in a thunderstorm  with his roof flapping behind his  car.  Still undaunted, but getting  shaky, I phoned the lady. "I'm  in Belleville," I said. 'Til be  quite a while." This time she  was displeased but still patient.  "Can I drive it?" I asked the  man. "I wouldn't." he said.  Grudgingly he finally agreed that  if I limped along Highway No. 2  from town to town and filled the  radiator up with water wherever  I could and if I hadn't done irreparable damage I might make  it to Toronto yet. I think he  wanted rid of me.  It died in Trenton. A drunk in  an old Chev pushed me around  for a while, but my convertable  was finished. "I'm in Trenton," I  said on the phone. "What are  you doing in all these places?"  she demanded, indignantly. "I'll  explain later," I said, shivering  in the phone booth and scowling  at the car.  I pushed that car onto a gas  station lot, took my bag from the  back. Just then a car came  around the corner and I stuck out  my thumb. He stopped. Luck  at last. Successfully hitchhiking  the first car that came by at three  in the morning. He took me five  miles and then left the highway  and went home to his farm. I  walked to Cobourg and slept on  a chair in a hotel lobby till a bus  came and I went to Toronto.  Two months later the principal  of my first school came to the door  of my Grade Six class looking  very concerned. "The police  have been here, John," he said.  "They've had report of an aban-  donded car in Trenton,. Ontario  and they've traced it to you.  Have you had your car stolen?''  I shuffled my feet and stared  at the floor. "No, I just left it  there," I said. "You just left it  there," he said incredulously.  What evidence of irresponsibility  in his new teacher was this?  So I told him the story.  r  i  i  i  i  i  ���  ���  i  i  i  i  I.

The notice went on to say  that the meeting would be held  in the Gibsons Elementary  School Library at 7:30 p.m. Now  I'm not one to pass up a meeting  with my children's teachers,  chatting with those fine young  women has always been one of  the most enjoyable aspects of  my contribution to the children's  education.  Like any responsible parent,  I've always taken a keen interest  in the intellectual development of  my children. They were given  books to eat at two months, had  pencils tied to their fingers at  four months, were read to beginning soon after conception and  were taught to count up to twenty  without using their toes at a very  early age. They were taught to  respect their teacher and to participate in every activity the  school had to offer. Generally  speaking the exercise has paid  off, they are both pretty fair  students and more important,  they seem to enjoy school.  Now however, I'm being asked  to go down to my children's  school to tell the teachers what  I think they should be teaching  my children. This indicates to  me that there must be some  "problem" in education that I  wasn't aware of. I'm sure the  problem has nothing to do with  reading, writing and arithmetic  because my children seem to have  mastered those esoteric skills,  at least to a very acceptable grade  one and two level. What then, is  this "Core Curriculum" all  about?  Let me give you my view of  the "problem".   As a teacher, I  have had access to, and of course  a very considerable interest in  the Ministry of Education's new  "Core Curriculum" and its related     "Learning     Assessment  Program".   The plan is deceptively simple; the government will  outline courses of study for every  school in the province, curricula  will be revised to correspond to  this   "core",   students   will   be  regularly tested to see if this  "core" has been mastered and if  the results are not satisfactory,  teachers will be given training in  how to teach the "core" better.  Teachers have been doing this  sort of thing for years, right in  their own classrooms and therein  lies crux of the matter.   At the  beginning of the year a teacher  will find out, by using a number  of methods,   including  testing,  just where the students in her  classroom stand as far as knowledge is concerned. Next she will  determine where those students  should be by the time the year  is  up, based on her training,  experience and the long established guidelines of the provincial  government.     Finally, she will  select the materials she will need  to help each and every individual  child to accomplish those goals.  The Ministry of Education on  the other hand appears to be  saying that they know where  every kid in the province should  stand and they not only know but  will make sure where every kid  in the province will be at the end  of each year.  To me, every stu  dent presents a special challenge,  and I like to try to meet those  challenges right in the classroom.  The further a solution is from the  problem, the less likely it's going  to work. The way it works now  is that the problem and the potential solution are right in the same  room together; the way the  government sees it the problem  in the classroom will be solved  from Victoria.  What are the consequences of  the  government's   proposals   to  those   most   vitally   interested;  students, parents and teachers?  The students no doubt will become   mighty   good   at   writing  tests and we all know how important it is to know how to write  tests. If they pass the tests everything will be fine and any other  educational difficulites they may  have, can be ignored. If they fail  the tests however, we'll have a  real   problem   on   our   hands.  Students today, contrary to popu- '  lar belief, are going to school  more often and staying there to  a higher grade than ever before.  Programs have been developed in  our school to help and encourage  those students who used to .drop  out in grade 8 or grade 10 to stay  in school longer.   What happens  to these kids if they can't pass a  provincially   administered   test?  I don't see too many job opportunities or apprenticeships being  offered to grade  10 drop  outs  these days.  . What about the parents? Sure,  it would be kind of interesting for  my own personal amusement to  see how my girls compare with  students in other parts of the province but I can't see where it  will do them much good. If they  did well I could pat myself on  the back for doing such a fine job  and assure myself that the school  system is just great. If they  didn't do too well I could blame  their mother, their teachers, the  mad aunt on the other side of  the family or a whole score of  other things, but it sure wouldn't  be of much benefit to the kids.  Teachers, on the other hand,  will greet the new program with,  mixed  feelings.      Despite   the:  ironic   inability   of  the   B.   C.  Teacher's Federation to educate,  their members about the impli-;  cations ofthe program, there will,  be some teachers who will be  appalled   at   the   government's'  intrusion  into   their   sphere   of  professional    interest.        Some  teachers however will see it as  a blessing. At last, someone will  tell them what to teach.   If they-  have some trouble, someone will .  tell them how to teach, and best.  of all someone else will be responsible for giving those nasty 7  tests.   ("Gosh Mary it's too bad.,  you failed but I'm not responsible.")    It's hard work setting j;  standards and selecting materials.7  for each student in the classroom  and it's harder still explaining !  to a student why his work is not  up to the standard you expect of v  him while you might expect a -.:i  different standard from another 0  student.    With provincially ad-./  ministered standards and testing, ..���>.  that most important part of tho  teacher's work will be lifted from. %  his shoulders, and he can settle ���  down to teaching kids how  to  write tests.  Don't get me wrong; I don't  think teachers are against stan- X  Continued Page 3  A  I LETTERS to the EDITOR  Chastisement  Editor:  As a regular reader of your  Musings, I have enjoyed your  humour and admired your style.  I have agreed with your general  viewpoint until your editorial of  February 1 in which you disparage teachers and derogate the  federation which represents  them. I quarrel with so much you  have written in this article that  I could write reams in rebuttal.  Instead, I shall answer a few remarks I consider particularly  offensive. Since I am retired,  I am no longer subject to the rules  of ethics working teachers must  observe.  First, your assumption that  teachers used to be loved and  respected when they were underpaid. I recognize this for what  you intended it to be - a rhetorical  device. But it simply isn't true.  My memories of education go  back to 1914 in a little red rural  schoolhouse in the interior of  B. C. A young man taught our'  school, an excellent teacher and  we were lucky to have him. One  day, after hours, a mob of young  bullies, including one of my  adolescent brothers, surrounded  and lay siege to our schoolhouse,  . hailing our teacher as a coward  and sissy because he would not  come out and be mauled. In the  history of education in pioneer  times in the U. S., it is recorded  that a young man teacher was  beaten to grisly death by his  adolescent pupils. This is love  and respect?  In the late twenties when I  began teaching, I don't recall  any conspicuous acts of love and  respect directed at teachers as  a group. I could recount disagreeable cases of strictures and  humiliations. Our tiny salaries  were grudged and resented.  Many people considered that we  didn't earn our money and said  so - the same type of people who  say it now: people who believe  that a teacher's day begins at  nine in the morning and ends at  three in the afternoon.  I, too, have despaired when  learning and working conditions  have been sacrificed in favour of  salary gains. In the large urban  district where I worked most of  my years, "willing, earnest,  hard-working teachers on. committees" have striven. ; They  failed for the underlying reason  that schoolboards find it much  cheaper to grant salary raises to  teachers already on staff than to  hire the extra staff and build the  extra classrooms necessary to  create really good learning and  working conditions. I don't agree  that the failure is attributable to  the B.C.T.F. as you insist.  I also dispute your interpretation of the word 'professional'  as meaning to work for fees. The  Oxford Dictionary lists no such  meaning.  Oil  Editor:  Oil and gas prices are going up  again. Why? Because Canada's  oil and gas is controlled by  foreign, mainly U.S. corporations. They insist on the right to  sell us our resources at the price  they could get on the export market. In other words, although we  are one of the lucky few with  enough natural resources to look  after our own needs, we are denied the benefits of our natural  heritage. We must pay the same  high prices as the nations who are  not blessed with their own oil  supplies. Why? It is to keep up  the profit rate for these foreign  companies, not to serve Canadian  needs. Otherwise those companies keep threatening a capital  strike. They won't work here.  There is an alternative. That is  to treat petroleum energy the way  we treat hydro-electric energy as  a public utility run by government  and owned by the people. That's  what Petro-Canada is all about.  It was forced on the minority  liberal government by the N.D.P.  when the N.D.P. had the balance  of power. It is supposed to be the  first step toward making our petroleum resources a public enter-  ' prise to serve Canadian, not  foreign, needs.  It looks like the Liberals are all  washed up so we are expecting a  conservative government in Ottawa next time around. I think a  vote for the N.D.P. makes more  sense because the Progressive  Conservative position on oil and  gas prices is to abolish Petro-Canada, and to give still more "incentives" to the foreign corporations.  On the subject of Petro-Canada, Gordon Towers, P.C. M.P. for  Red Deer asked the House of  Commons: "Does the government have any intention of dis-  I resent your allegation that  teachers "ride on the backs of  organized labour" in salary negotiations. What is wrong with  the practice of taking industrial  averages into account in arbitration awards? Organized labour  does it all the time when they demand parity in their wages. Must  teachers hark back to Sparticus  every time they negotiate salaries? In the district where I  worked the salary negotiations  one year turned upon the fact that  the average livetime earnings of  the custodians of the schools was  higher than that of the teachers;  the teachers won the raise. Did  that mean we were riding on the  backs of the custodians? About  ten years ago, a nineteen-year-old  nephew of mine who had left  school in grade nine, landed a job  which paid him $2,000 a year  more than poor old Aunty's job  paid her after all her years of  education and 20 years of experience.  As for the "envy ofthe faller".  Six years ago I employed a master  faller to dismantle two giant  trees. The job took four hours  and I paid him $278 which I did  not grudge; I know the work of  falling is dangerous and demanding. Since then I employed  another good faller to do less  difficult trees and his charge was  less. I have no way of knowing  whether or not these men were  typical fallers nor what the average income of fallers is. Yet  fallers, apparently, know to the  dime what the incomes of teachers are. Their knowledge is  based on the unreliable figures  provided by the press in reports  of the results of teacher's salary '  negotiations. All too often, newspapers, for reasons of their own,  simply average out the figures on  a salary scale without regard for  the numbers of teachers en each  salary bracket. (The preponderance of teachers is in the lower  levels.) The large salaries of  administrators are also included  for good measure, even though  they are in another category,  (management). A swollen figure  with no relation to the actual  income received by the average  classroom teacher is obtained and  published and the public, including the fallers, is misinformed.  Teachers, in this country, are  classic scapegoats. Now that  Education Week is approaching,  journalists are sharpening . up  their stock of invective and the  sacrificial victim is being hauled  out. But John Burnside is no  longer down there in the arena.  He has scurried up the ladder of  social status. He should take  care, however, it isn't a slippery  ladder and take care his musings  don't degenerate into mouthings.  (Mrs.) Isabel Ralph  Recycling  Editor:  Enough has already been said  about recycling that the public  is no doubt aware of the importance of it in our approach to  the problem of solid waste disposal.  The Garden State Paper Co.  has a small, efficient newspaper  recycling plant, which I recently  visited, in Pomona, California.  Problems relating to de-inking  processes, supply of old newspapers, cost of production, etc.  have been successfully dealt with  and the plant seems to be operating quite smoothly.  The quality of the recycled  newsprint compares favorably  with that of the virgin product.  According to an official of Garden  State, currentiy about 25% of  the newsprint used in the United  States is collected and reused.  Here in Canada the government should be promoting an  efficient and productive recycling  industry. I'm quite aware that  municipalities, through lack of  adequate information and funds,  are not prepared to implement a  recycling program and need  government assistance to make  such a program successful.  At the present time recycling  is more a matter of local public  education and concern rather  than a means of efficient use of  our waste products. If recycling  is to be successful, then it will  take the full cooperation of the  community, the government -  and the householder, the very  vital link to a successful operation.  Harry Olaussen  Efficient  Editor:  I see in the paper that the  Regional Board has conducted a  poll in the Village of Gibsons.  May I point out very clearly  that the residents of Gibsons have  an extremely good and efficient  Village Council who have proven  their great ability to give us a  good government and we are  extremely pleased at the fine job  they have done in the past.  I would like to clearly point out  to the Regional Board that Gibsons is very capable of looking  after the recreational needs, etc.  of the people of Gibsons and we  certainly don't need the Regional  Board to govern us, so, please  Regional Board, look after vour  own affairs. I'm sure you have  enough to do and leave Gibsons  alone.  Thank you.  Irritated Taxpayer  posing of this national calamity?"  Why not? They already have P.C.  friends.

She has  instead been put on the Gulf  Island run, while their ship  undergoes refit.  Coast residents have already  been subjected to the inconvenience of inadequate service by  the M. V.

It now appears, for  some reason, we shall have  another month of this inferior  service while the Gulf Island  run uses our ship with no interruption in their quality of service.  Could the reason behind this  be the fact that the Gulf Islands  is a Social Credit riding while the  Sunshine Coast is N.D.P.?

"Education" as some members  of the B. C. School Trustees  Association are occasionally wont  to say, "is too important to be  left to the educators"; in the  same way that we all know that  plumbing is too important to be  left to the plumbers, carpentry is  too important to be left to the  carpenters and curing people is  too important to be left to the doctors. Fortunately, just in the nick  of time, the Ministry of Education  of our very own Social Credit  government is going to rescue  education from the hands of our  educators. Snatching defeat from  the jaws of victory is, of course,  not a new role for our government, but there are those who will  sleep more peacefully tonight  knowing that education will now  be resting securely in the hands  of bureaucrats rather than educators.  There is only one thing I want  to know when I go to that meeting  tonight: now that we have found  a solution will somebody please  tell me the problem.  CiiiiiSe#ieis  Roman Catholic Services  Rev.

THIRD PARTY LEGAL LIABILITY  Every motorist must carry this  protection on his vehicle for personal injury and property damage.  For 1977/78 it has been increased  from $50,000 to $75,000 at no increase in your premium: You can,  however, purchase additional  coverage above this minimum  requirement. Most people carry  more than the minimum because  it is inexpensive and a good safeguard in case of a serious accident.  "NO FAULT"  ACCIDENT BENEFITS  "No Fault" accident benefits have  also been increased for 1977/78  at no increase in your premium.  "No Fault" accident benefits are  automatically paid by Autoplan for  injury to occupants of your vehicle  or to pedestrians you hit regard-  lessof who isatfault in an accident.  Here are the basic increases in  "No Fault."  ���Weekly disability payments  have been increased from $50  to $75.  ���Weekly death benefits have  been increased from $50 to  $75 for a spouse or dependent.  ���Weekly death benefits have  been increased from $10 to $15  for other than the first dependent.  ���Funeral expenses have been  increased from $500 to $750.  SPECIAL COVERAGE  There are a number of special insurance coverages you can buy  from your Autoplan agent or  Motor Vehicle Branch office,  when you renew your Autoplan  Insurance and Motor Vehicle  Licence.  Here are several examples:  ���Loss of Use  This optional coverage means  that if your insured vehicle is  in an accident and is not drive-  able, you will be able to obtain  substitute transportation. Either  an automobile, a taxi or public  transit.  ���Special Equipment  Endorsement  A number of special items are  not covered by basic Autoplan  insurance. The list includes  such things as tape decks (not  installed by the manufacturer or  not installed in-dash by an auto  dealer or retail supplier),  campers, canopies and C.B.  radios. If you value them you  may wish to buy additional  coverage.  Personal belongings like cameras,  clothes, tapes and sports equipment which you have in your  vehicle are not covered by Autoplan but you can arrange general  insurance coverage. Ask your  Autoplan agent.    .  LOWER RATES FOR  YOUNG WOMEN  Premiums on vehicles whose  Principal Operators are females  under the age of 25 will be reduced by 10% in 1977/78.  FINANCE PLAN  An ICBC finance plan is available  for your convenience. If you use  the plan, you must still make full  payment for your licence plate  fees and a 25% down-payment on  your Autoplan Insurance premium; the balance will require  three instalment payments at two-  month intervals. These payments  will be automatically charged  against your bank account if you  elect to use this plan. The interest  rate on the outstanding balance  is 15% per annum (1%% per  month).  RENEWAL DATE  The deadline for Renewal is Midnight, February 28, 1977. Early  renewal is more efficient and will  save you valuable time. PLEASE  RENEW EARLY.

Hiking - a popular activity  What social activity can you  think of that lets you chat with  your friends, check out the latest  happenings with Mother Nature,  and improve your health through  exercise all at the same time?  Well, the answer is hiking, and  groups of people in the Sechelt  area are getting together twice  a week to do just that!  Every Tuesday morning Ellen  Burg takes between 15 and 20  people ��� who have been dubbed  the "Happy Hikers", through the  woods and up the backroads from  her home just off East Porpoise  Bay Road. Ellen has been hiking  every day for a year and a half,  and knows the woods like her own  yard. She even has her own  names for various areas and  points of interest she comes  across in her walks - "Plateau  Number Three", the "Tree Tunnel", "Muskeg Lake". The  group sets out at 10:00 a.m. and  usually emerges back into civili  zation around noon, having visited such places as Chapman Falls  Swan Lake, and numerous scenic  spots in between. Plans for the  future include some longer hikes  as well, with perhaps a trip up  to the Skookumchuck to check  out the narrows.  For those who want to make an  outing a part of their weekend,  there are also Sunday Hikes,  leaving from outside the Wilson  Creek Community Hall every  Sunday at 1:30 p.m. These are  planned with the whole family in  mind, so that both youngsters  and not-so-youngsters can enjoy  them. The idea behind these  hikes is that many people love  to go walking but don't know  just where to go to find new trails  and by getting together they can  learn from each other about new  places. These hikes are led by  various people who offer to lead  a group on a hike which they  have been on and enjoyed, and  we are constantly hoping that  more people will join us and offer  to take us on a walk in a different  direction. The group has so far  been to Chapman Falls and along  Chapman Creek, through the  Roberts Creek Recreational area!  and up along Langdale Creek.  Next Sunday's outing will be a  shorter hike along Grey Creek.  If you can recommend to us a  place to hike to, or if you would  be willing to lead us on a hike,  please call Fran Berger at 885-  3651. We're most anxious to  have you join us!  All this is being planned with  both your health and enjoyment  in mind. There are no substitutes  for exercise and fresh air on the  road to a healthier and happier  you, so come on out and take  advantage of what is free for your  benefit and pleasure. You have  nothing to lose but a few pounds-  and so much energy to gain!  Happy Hiking.  Logo Design Contest  SPONSORED BY  GIBSONS HARBOUrV  BUSINESS ASSOCIATION  Lee Kum-Sing in beautiful recital  by Ken Dalgleish  Timber Days enthusiasm high  Lee Kum-Sing played beautifully at his piano recital Saturday  night.   Even without the concert  grand piano his artistry deserves,  without   a   theatre  or   acoustics  or lighting, the performance was  marvelous.     Entering  the   concrete, flourescent lit cafeteria of  the High School to an introduction  by  an  R.C.M.P.   announcing  a  misparked   car,    Kim   gave   us  music reserved  usually  for the  concert   capitals   of  the   world.  Bartok's     "Fifteen     Hungarian  Peasant Songs" began warming  the room immediately with simple  earthy tunes pushed on by waves  of dissonance, stirring and carrying the listening spirit away and  into another world.  The Greeks gave us the word  music from the "Muses". These  were nine frolicsome ladies,  daughters of God-Father Zeus  and the Titaness Mnemosyne  (memory) who floated about in  long flowing robes and with their  choir of voices were intent on  capturing peoples' spirits and  tempting them off into the nether  realms...away from the hectic  life of everyday ancient Greece.  It's hard to consider the spirit  being "tempted out" anymore by  music. Music chases and pursues  us everywhere and where the  muses of Greece were seduct-  resses, the mutation muses we  have inherited are too often  flashers, exposing themselves  blatantly to sell an album or product. In this barrage of music  we undergo, it's easy to remain  spiritually unmoved and so Saturday night's performance becomes  an event of rare magnitude for  slow and subtle and delicate  yet undeniable were the muses  who called to us through Lee  Kum-Sing.  So continuous and clear were  Mr. Kum-Sing's passages, so  comprehensive the phrasing, distinct the melodies, and delicate  the trills and mordents, I surrendered completely and found it  impossible to move my pen to  take notes for this review. The  audience likewise was in the  artist's easy trance with spell-  breaking applause difficult to  collect at times, a supreme compliment.  Brahams' 2 Intermezzi Op. 118 <  in  A  minor and  E Flat  minor"  offered some resistance to Kum-  Sing due to the tight action on  the   new  and   little-used   piano  Fish Talk  By Jerry Ward  I would like to talk this week on  environment for your fish. A  lot of people think that to raise  tropical fish, all you need is an  aquarium, some water, a few  ornaments, and the fish. These  people will probably give up the  hobby within a few years.  To raise tropicals so that they  are content with their environment, you must create a nice  surrounding for them. Ornaments and plastic plants look  nice, and a lot of professionals  use them in their tanks, but of  what use is a plastic plant to a  fish, other than a possible hiding  spot.  To have a nice looking aquarium, I maintain you should have  live plants in sufficient quantitiy  to act as a nice clean looking background as well as doing the job  of hiding your smaller fish from  predators around them. Live  plants also act as a ready food  source to a lot of the tropicals  that we buy. Almost all your  livebearers need some vegetable  matter to do well.

The program also included  Schubert's Impromptu in B flat  Major as well as Chopin's Fan-  tasie - Polonaise, Op. 61. For  encore Mr. Kum-Sing played the  familiar Humoresque by Lizst  and the nostalgic humming of  this favourite by contented members of the audience was almost  audible. The evening was capped with the first movement of  a Schuman Fantasie and Polonaise.  One of the first comments I  heard from the quiet crowd of  over 150, was "It was beautiful...  but so short" and I thought of  / the timelessness of art and the  special space my soul had just  revisited, and how fortunate we  were that the Arts Council  brought us Mr. Lee Kum-Sing.  %&�� mJ^ *��* *^^ ^m^ *Sfi ^Sfi *mm* ^A* ^mm�� ~lj~ ^M* ^^* ^1* ^X* ^A*  sy* *^* ^T* ^T* ^I* ^I* ^^* ^^ ^x* ^^* ^^%^^> ^1* ^T* ^T* *I*  Buying a gift for a young lady?

The committee  urged all those wishing space or  booths to get in action with their  plans for concessions before other  clubs and organizations beat  them to the punch and get all  the best locations.  We still need some ladies to  have a tea garden and someone  to put on a baron of beef, bingo,  and any other fund raising  events. This year the committee  have made it more attractive  moneywise to benefit the participant.  Lil Fraser, heading the Coordinating committee was her  usual energetic self, getting the  wheels grinding, hopeful of an  early completed program. Her  co-chairman, Robert ��� Allen,  working for a better electrical  service in the park, had success  -with the powers to be for better  lighting and additional wiring;  a betterment to Hackett Park in  general. The grounds are . in  better shape and we have been  asked to keep cars and horses  off of the recently seeded turf.  Graham Craig, chairman of  the Loggers Sports, was enthusiastic and promises the best  show and events ever from the  loggers who will be participating.  Our treasurer, Jake Friesen,  with a fat bank balance, was  heartened by an early payment  for the two-day celebration from  the International Order of Fores-  The type of plants you chose  will depend strictly upon the eyes  of the beholder, but remember  that fish like the silver dollar  species will eat every type of  plant it comes in contact with.  Most fish are more compatable  than this fish, with most plants  you buy.  As far as ornaments go I like  to set up an aquarium that looks  natural. No gadgetry or toys will  I use. I prefer rocks or slate,  which is not very hard to get, and  wood which I find in our local  streams. When I go looking for  the wooden pieces, I look for  pieces which are sunken or partially buried. These I take home  and clean. To clean them I fill  a bucket with hot water and put  in the wood, this kills any bacteria  and bugs that may adhere to  the piece of wood. I then scrape  and brush it until there is no more  rot or loose matter left. Then give  it another soaking in hot water,  rinse under cold water, and it is  now ready to be set in the aquarium. I have several hollow bits  of wood in my aquarium, which  my bristlenose catfish use to  breed in, to me that is one sign  that this method works well  and the fish are happy.

Peter Trower  THE GENIUS-KEEPER  The other day I had occasion to  revisit a pub on immemorially  seedy, upper downtown Granville  Street, a couple of blocks before  the bridge. The place had been  refurbished somewhat in the  dozen or so years since I last  downed a beer there but the cast  hadn't altered much. They hung  at their tables in the beer-bright  afternoon, predictably as fish in  a tank, down-at-the-mouth and  down-at-the-heels, washing the  day away. A few of the faces  were vaguely-familiar. One  ghostgrey man I'd once known  fleetingly cast me a disremember-  ing glance. He'd aged badly  under the day-to-day bludgeoning,  of this bar, this street, this repetition. He looked like his own  father. I peered beyond the time-  scratched truth of him into the  blurred past that wouldn't stand  still.  Sixteen years back, its no safer  but I'm sure as hell younger and  so are the rest of them. I'm sitting at maybe the same table,  clutching a glass that's long since  been broken. "Hey, man" says  Lefty, third-generation rounder,  whose father and grandfather  haunt these same bars too,  "there's a guy over here wants to  talk to you about doing some  drawings for him." I'm game for  anything that might net me a few  bucks even though my interest in  art has waned in favour of writing. I follow Lefty to the other  end of the pub where a middle-  aged man, rather too well-dressed and groomed for this neck of  town, is sitting. I figure maybe  he's gay but he turns out to be  straight-enough and he is really  looking for an illustrator. His  name is Maurice Carey. I tell him  I'm pretty rusty as I've .been  doing a lot of writing. "I suppose  you've read Malcolm Lowry?"  he says.  As a matter of fact, I've just  been introduced to the late Dol-  larton writer's work by a friend  but know little about the man  beyond what's written in the  dust-jacket blurbs. From Carey,  I learn for the first time the now  well-known legends about  Lowry's wealthy, English family  to be the errant writer's 'keeper'  when he first arrived in Vancouver from Mexico in the early  Forties. He'd brought with him  the germ of his one great novel  Under the Volcano and a gargantuan thirst. "The man was a  bloody genius with words, no  doubt about that but he didn't  have a shred of responsibility  when he got on the booze. Once  he disappeared completely for  four days. When his wife Marge-  rie and I finally tracked him  down, it was in an east-end  bootleg-joint. Lowry was shivering naked in a backroom bed,  having actually sold his clothes  and shoes for one last bottle!"  It is not the last time I am to hear  this particular story. Carey goes  on to recount a couple of similar  incidents. Yet there is no doubt  that, despite Lowry's self-destructive excesses, he regards him  in retrospect with a certain af  fection. "He could be charming  as hell when he wanted and funny  too. I can still remember him  appearing at the top of the stairs  in my house, playing his ukelele  and singing some crazy song. He  didn't have a bad voice."  The upshot is that Carey invites me down to his place to  discuss the book he wants illustrated. I'm more interested in  hearing about Malcolm Lowry but  perhaps there's a buck to be  made here. Carey is obviously  not wanting for money. He lives  in a self-consciously bohemian  but expensive apartment near  English Bay with an attractive  wife, many years his junior. The  manuscript in question is a guide  to Stanley Park that Carey hopes  to sell to the Parks Board. It's  not a project that fills me with any  notable creative fervor but perhaps its wittily-written or has  some original angles. I take a  copy of it home with me to look  over.  It becomes painfully apparent  after only a few pages, that none  of Lowry's talent has rubbed off  on Maurice Carey. The style is  ponderous and dull; filled with  cliches. The information offered  is the most trite and obvious kind  with no new slants to enliven its  dull cataloguing of too-often-recounted facts and figures. Since  all the information is readily-  available in tourist-brochures, the  whole project seems pointless  and redundant.  The idea as it stands, is a complete washout. The best artwork  in the world couldn't compensate  for the relentlessly dreary text.  But I need the money- and a  thought occurs to me. Carey's  shown me some of his own drawings and they are markedly better than his writing. Why don't  we switch places and I'll attempt  to inject a little life into the  words? When I next see Carey,  I suggest this. He takes instant  umbrage. He was a friend of  Malcolm Lowry's and he's going  to be the writer, by God I The  whole scheme self-destructs and  I don't see Carey again.  Many years later, Douglas  Day's biography of Malcolm  Lowry is published. When I  pick it up, I remember Maurice  Carey and decide to check and see  if he'd been stringing me along.  But there's his name, large as  life. The portrait it paints of  him is hardly flattering, accuses  him of bullying and terrorizing  poor, befuddled Lowry and cheating him out of his money. Hardly  the story of humanitarianistn and  kindly admonishment that Carey  told me. Truth varies with the  point-of-view. In any event,  shortly after this, I spot an item  in the paper announcing that one  Maurice Carey is hitting the  Lowry-book's publisher with defamation and libel-suits. Ogre  or martyr, he's still out there  somewhere alive and kicking.  Filing these irrelevant musings  for posterity, I departed the time-  warped pub.  ��� It  with  John  Faustmann  mmm  mMx*v7tmjK\j\  '���\2  &.  AJj-jjjj)jj^^i\;^\i>;rjiiit;ViiKi<  This is the sad but beautifully  told story of Anthony Apakark  Thrasher, an Eskimo who was  devoured by our society. If you  have a romantic vision of Eskimo  life in the north, one that affords  you some solace in these complicated times, you would be well  advised not to read this book.  It reveals the more sordid side  of being an Eskimo, and it is a  stinging indictment against the  contemporary Canadian way of  life.  It is probably the only book  Thrasher will ever write, and it is  certainly one of the few books to  be written by an Eskimo. Among  shelves of books written about the  north by temporary white visitors  to that area, this one breathes  fresh life and truth into the subject. Weaving autobiographical  stories, bits of folklore and repor-  torial lucidity, Thrasher creates  a stark, clean portrait of his life.  His narrative is built on the carefully recalled details of his days,  and the result is a gritty, engaging , honest piece of work.  He begins with his first day at  the residential school in Aklavik,  Northwest Territories. The  priests have told his father that  Anthony needs an education. The  old ways of the Eskimo are gone  forever, and he must learn the  new ways if he is to survive.  "Six years old, I stood trembling at the edge of the property,  refusing to take one more step  into that strange, forbidding  world of mission school, my little  bit of luggage slouched at my  feet. The nuns with their shrieking voices reminded me of the  ghosts of the dead that my father  said roamed the North in winter.  It wasn't winter, it was fall.  But I was scared just the same."  His life at the school has an  unreal quality to it. Inside the  long, shiny corridors he is taught  many strange things that have no  relation to the way his people  live. Here, he is only another  child. He is taught to read and  write, and taught, too, that playing with girls is a sin. A silver  chain is used to reinforce the  lessons.  Yet out on his father's trapline,  he is almost a man. At six, he  can already shoot a rifle, and he  knows many of the things which  will make him a good hunter for  his people. . By the time he is  eighteen he is the sole provider  for his family, able to walk hundreds of miles through winter  tundra, trapping animals, and  living completely off the land.  This period of his life is touching  in its innocence. He hunts, or  takes occasional jobs as they are  offered. He has girlfriends and  he gives all his money away to  friends, or to people who seem to  need it. His age of innocence  ends when he leaves the North.  "One day this government man  came up.to me and asked if I  wanted to go South and take a  six-week course in how to drive  machines."  Thrasher and some of his  friends were flown south to  Edmonton for the course. Through incredible government bung  ling, this group of Eskimos was  abandoned in a skid row hotel,  without their money or any luggage. Edmonton amazed them.  They'd never seen anything like  it before, and the police kept  stopping them for jaywalking,  patiently explaining about corners, and green lights.  The descent of Thrasher begins  at this point. The southern heat  debilitates him, and he starts  drinking beer to curb its effects.  Confused, bewildered, he gets  nowhere with the course, and  ends up on skid row. Alcoholic,  impoverished, and in constant  ill-health, he circles lower and  lower into his private hell.  Waking one morning after a  drunkenly unremembered debauch, the police arrest him.  They charge him with the murder  of a man he's never seen before,  and they put him in prison.  The remainder of the book  details his life in the various  security institutions of Alberta  and British Columbia. In all  these places he is the only Eskimo  there. The reader lives through  the fears and revulsions that  Thrasher suffers in these places.  It is a picture of the odd man  out, the Eskimo who sneaks down  to the kitchen to eat the frozen  fish that he still likes so much.  He likes to stand in the meat  cooler. The cold reminds him  of home.  Interspersed with the brutality  of prison are his-flights of reminiscence, and the sweet release of  his dreams. All the time he is  locked up; he seems like a caged  graceful animal. The emptiness  of his well-loved North is reduced  now to the bare confines of his  tiny prison cell, and it is here  that he began to write this book.  Reaching beyond his own self-  pity, he wants to make this a  book for all his people. In his  preface he writes:  In the north, polar bears hunt  and share a meal. They can leave  some for the foxes, and the foxes  share what they have. I came  down here and saw human beings  preying on each other, pawing  one another. On the Arctic  coast, I could be completely lout  and know what to do. But when  I'm lost in a city, I'm like a white  man stranded on an iceberg with  nothing but his clothes on. I  hope the younger generation of  my people read my story. They  will be easy targets, like me, if  they are not warned."       Some people think our political,  economic and sociological institutions are out-dated, that there is  so much frustration and dissatisfaction because we are using  19th Century values to deal with  20th Century problems. Peter  Cook, Parliamentary correspondent for CBC radio news has  collected the thoughts and ideas  of some of the most noted thinkers and doers in Canada and the  U. S. asking them what we will  have to do to fit into a rapidly  changing world, individually and  as a nation. The resulting challenging blueprint for tomorrow,  The Future Tense can be heard  on Sunday at 5:05 p.m.  We look back nostalgically to  the vitality of pioneer days without realising the challenge of todays frontiers. 100 years ago  Canada was involved with a  gigantic construction project,  the building of the CPR and at  the same time putting together  Confederation. Today, we're  looking perhaps for a new sort  of Confederation and a construction project, the MacKenzie Pipeline which will dwarf the CPR.  The program however looks  further than just Quebec and a  pipeline to economics, sex, religion, politics, ethics, education,  leisure, work, arts and science  and technology. Among those  interviewed are Alvin Toffler,  Marshall McLuhan, Hugh Mc-  Lellan, Mr. Justice Berger,  Judith Maxwell, Margaret At-  wood, Northrop Frye and Richard  Rohmer.  If you've been complaining of  a lack of indepth discussion of  issues which affect our lives on  CBC radio this program hopefully  will provide food for thought and  spark futher debate.

The cast  includes Joan Hackett as the resourceful heroine; Peter Ustinov  as a medicine man and a supporting cast of all-stars. .  The  film  moves   along   at   a  steady clip and some truly im  pressive photography of hurricane and tidal wave sequences  bring the adventure to its climax.

Harmony Hall Happenings  by Jim Holt  Well here we go again folks,  but I am sorry to say that the  news or at least part of it is not  what I like to write about. I will  open up with the good news and  tell you that at the Carpet Bowling last Wednesday we had another Birthday party, it was for one  of our Star bowlers whose name is  Mrs. Winn Keen. Winn admits  to being 39 but is in the neighborhood of midway between 80 and  ; 90 years of age and to see this  sprightly little lady getting  around you would never believe  she is that young. It was a surprise party we had for her and  was she ever surprised! It was a  joy to see her enjoying herself  so much. So here's a Happy and  Sincere Brithday wish Winn from  all of us and may you be with us  for many more. But please, and  I ask this as a personal favor,  when you are bowling don't get  as close to the Jack as you do as  you are making it too difficult  for us to compete against you.  Our bingo was again a success  on Thursday night. 105 showed  up to play and naturally the winners went home very happy. We  are all looking forward to the  Valentine Party on Saturday,  February 12th. It is a dinner we  all look forward to and we certainly thank the ladies of the  Auxiliary of the Royal Canadian  Legion Branch #109 for granting  us this favor.  We have a new P.A. system in  the hall now and it makes a  wonderful difference, especially  on the throat, as it comes in loud  and clear and everyone is very  happy about it.  Well I guess that is all the good  news I have for you and now for  the sad news. Thursday was not  an enjoyable day for many of us  as one of our members passed  away last Sunday night. This  wonderful person was Chris  Wood who lived at Port mellon.  "'   Chris  was   a  wonderful   person  who was loved by everyone,  adults and children alike. I am  given to understand that Chris  was known as Granpa to all the  children at Port Mellon and I can  well believe it. He had been in  failing health for quite a while  and then seemed to be improving  but alas his heart gave out and  Chris is gone, but not forgotten.  The tribute paid to Chris was  really exemplified in the Anglican  Church when every seat was  filled, many there were our own  members of Harmony #38. If  Chris could have seen it, and I  really believe he did, he would  have been a proud man. He was  a good Freemason and Past  Patron of the Eastern Star and,  we as Brother Masons will miss  him very much. I am going to  quote a few lines in memory of  Chris who was not only a Brother  Mason but also a true friend,  not only to me personally, but to  whomever he came in contact  with. I would personally like to  thank Mrs. Hilda Lee who gave  such a wonderful solo called  "In the Garden" it was rendered  beautifully, with such meaning  that I believe everyone in the  church got a message from it.  I don't feel like writing too much  at this time so I will close with  this quote to the everlasting  memory of Chris Wood our  friend and brother.  When good friends walk beside  us,/ On the trails that we must  keep./ Our burdens seem less  heavy/ And the hills are not so  steep./ The weary miles pass  swiftly,/ Taken in joyous stride,/  And all the world seems brighter/  When friends walk by our side.  We offer our sincere condolences to Betty and her family in  this hour of sorrow, and trust  that losing their loved one will not  be too heavy to bear. I would  especially like to thank all our  members who turned up for the  funeral.  Happy Horizons  After the showing of a film,  the New Horizons, and Sechelt  Seniors' teams rolled up their  sleeves for a bout of carpet  bowling. Both teams were in  good shape, the counts changing  from time to time, but in the end  the Roberts Creek team gave the  final knockout blow winning both  games for a countdown of 16 to  12; and 11 to 9. It could be that  the levelling of our hall floor  helped tip the scales for the home  team, but whatever the excuse,  the games proved exciting and  were enjoyed by both players and  spectators.  During the activities, old-time  songs were played to liven the  atmosphere. "Show me the way  to go home", "How'ya gonna  keep 'em down on the farm",  "Teddy Bear's Picnic" plus  songs of Davey Crocket and  Jessie James. About the only  old-timer missing was Barney  Google.  Speaking of old times, there  are at least two  seniors living  on this Coast who can claim being  newsboys for the old "Vancouver  World" paper (around 1913)  which was operated by a Vancouver former mayor, Louis  D. Taylor.  The New Horizons photo album  and scrap books have made their  debut, and as time moves on,  they should grow into historical  documents. Our historical department is still searching for  records that indicate when the  Lower Roberts Creek Road was  opened up. Apparently there  were no dignitaries, ribbon-  cutting, or champagne bottle  ceremonies to celebrate the occasion or it would have been  thoroughly documented. However, we are grateful users of the  road and would like to know more  on this subject - if only to give  credit to those unrecorded heros  of former years who pioneered  the project. If anyone on the  Coast can help us fill in this blank  space of our history, please call  886-7297.

A Mrs.  Puchalski phoned and asked if  I would come and speak to her  grade three and four class about  recycling. ,  I've never addressed a group  of kids that young before, and  was amazed at how articulate  they were. They seemed.to have  a pretty good idea of what recycling was all about and.asked  some intelligent questions." We  went through the garbage., can  at the front of the room and  decided what could and couldn't  be recycled and at the end they  suggested they could go on a  paper drive for Peninsula Recycling. A week later they sent  me this thank you note which I  would like to share with you.  Dear Mr. Haigh,  Thank you for coming to visit  us and telling us about re-cycling.  We really enjoyed it and now we  are starting to recycle things  like scrap papers, cans, bottles  and jars.  Then after when we have alot  Mrs. Puchalski will be bringing  them to you.  -7 Yourstruly  Grade 3 and 4  Well, let me tell you, that just  made my month.- It also started  me thinking in a lot of different  directions.

All of it  could be recycled. Anyway, Mrs.  Puchalski's initiative is a step  in the right direction.  One of the things we at Peninsula Recycling want to do with  the Canada Works Program grant  we have applied for (if we get it),  is to make someone available to  the schools, not only to talk about  recycling, but to show them how  to do it.  It must be very/ confusing to  a little kid (or even a big one)  when part of society is rattling  on about recycling and conser-  sation and ecology, while at the  same time he or she is being  bombarded with insidious propaganda about disposable lighters  and razors. I wonder what went  through that kid's mind the first  time he/she went into a store by  his/herself to buy a chocolate  bar, came out of the store, ate it  and found him/herself stuck with  a wrapper and could find nowhere  to put it.   Don't get me wrong,  by Tom Haigh  candy bar wrappers are not recyclable. God forbid we should  suddenly be deluged with boxes  full of gooey pieces of paper.  But whose responsibility is it to  see that that kid doesn't get an  instant lesson in "throw-away"  living?  We have to eventually wake up  to the fact that this earth is really  a spaceship ~ a closed, finite  system.

Even though the number of  entries has been increased to  forty, we still have a waiting  list. In order to cut down on late  draws, the 'spiel will begin on  Thursday evening, February 17  for local rinks. This will necessitate postponing the Thursday  night league as well as Friday  night.  The official opening, of the first,'  annual Gibsons Winter Club Bonspiel is scheduled for 8:30 p.m.  on Friday the 18th. Pipers have  been invited- to perform then-  usual bonspiel ritual, and it is  expected we/will have many visitors on hand. Drawmaster Al  Pajak has arranged the draws to  accommodate those who have  farthest to travel, by allowing  them to curl in the late Friday  evening and Saturday morning  events. Each draw will be one  hour and fifty minutes long or  eight ends, whichever comes  first, and Dominion play down  rules will be used by the judges.  Refreshments, under the very  capable leadership of Deirdre  Pearson and the hard working  members of the Ladies Club, will  be 'serving throughout the weekend. The ladies are also preparing the banquet for the bon-  spielers on Saturday evening.

So it is  with interest that I have noted a  definite-increase in the consumption of tea in our establishment.  As I was brought up in the land  of the tea drinkers I didn't become a slave of the black bean  until later in life.. But, needless  to say, I made up for lost time and  nowadays, unless I get my two  or three fixes in a morning, the  impression that my head is inhabited by a large furry animal  stays with me until about lunchtime. Also, as early morning  "Dogwooders" may have noticed, I become somewhat surly  and snappish if deprived of the  steaming brew.  I am managing to drink tea  the rest of the day but as I work in  an environment of the ever-full,  well almost, coffee pot, its a great  temptation.  I have always looked upon tea  drinking as a pleasant social  event and it is nice to see it make  a comeback. As one final thought  you can bet your last cup of coffee  that although there are all manner of reasons for these shortages  of coffee and therefore price increases, there is no way the price  will come down when times of  plenty return. So, come on folks,  let's show them that they haven't  got us by the bottom of our coffee  pots. Drink more tea, before its  too late!  I have been noticing the  "pushers" in our community  lately. I think I had better define  myself here. What I mean is the  people who do things. I'm sure  you have all attended meetings  for whatever reason; business,  social, church, school, and suddenly you notice the same group  of people getting up on their hind  legs. Whether it's to propose  a motion, be on a committee or  just state their views, there they  are.  This is a fault of mine whether  through shyness. or laziness,  whatever, I tend to sit there and  let other people do things for  me. So I guess I'm trying to  say two things. One is thank you  to the "pushers" and the other is  to get involved I  Come cry with me  ANN NAPIER  If yon have any questions for  Ann Napier, write the Coast  news, Box 460.  Dear Ann Napier:  I've had several years of knowing my old man was unfaithful���  I feel like giving up. Because of  the children I've pretended not  to know. How should I proceed?  M.C.  DearM.C:  I know this is a demeaning  space. Often people, man or  woman doubt their own sexual  adequacy, or retaliate by taking  a lover. That is better than resentment and hostility. Talk it  over, put your cards on the table,  give him time or set conditions  that are tolerable. If you have a  lot going for your relationship,  work on your appearance, take up  a hobby - dancing, art, pantomime, be interesting, read. Her,  or their appeal will probably wear  off. Men seldom leave, they have  to be pushed out. So why help  her? Hang in there until you  feel you can be objective, then  decide. Try not to needle or  verbalize your feelings, go  serenely on. Keep your image  and personality intact. Whatever  way it goes, you'll like yourself  better.  Dear Ann Napier:  I have this friend that is going  with a man young enough to  be her son. This makes me feel  annoyed. Is it any of my business?  Mrs. E.  Dear Mrs. E.:  No! But then we all react inside to situations we aren't used  to. Women's lib makes me feel  its just as valid for a woman to  like a young man as for a middle  aged man to go out with young  cuties-which we accept more  readily, in fact the older woman  can offer a lot in sex and skills.  The older man may fail, but the  older woman doesn't have that  problem. People fall in love  often at first sight. No one carries  a questionnaire to be filled out  before we meet. Sometimes the  attraction is instant and nothing  anyone says matters one whit.  When in that colourful daze, relax and enjoy it.

A little  aerial warfare off a local beach.    Photo  taken   by   Michael   Putnam,  of Cosy Corners Camera Shop  manager  Stott on village enlargement  by Adrian Stott  That tedious metes and bounds  description in last week's Coast  News confirms that Gibsons has  achieved its boundary extension.  This occured over the objections  of the majority of the property  owners affected, and of the Regional District, and caused expensive delays for an unlucky developer caught in the red tape,  but it's hard to see why expansion  was necessary at all.  About 18 months ago, Don  Sutherland proposed a small  industrial subdivision on the land  behind the Windsor Plywood  warehouse near Payne Road.  However, the ground's drainage  was bad, so he was told a sewer  would be required. This was fine  by Sutherland, but when he  applied for connection to Gibsons'  nearby sewer main, the village  refused him. The council said  village sewer service outside its  boundaries was legally "not  advisable", so Sutherland would  have to petition the province to  have the land included in the  village. He did this, with good  grace, despite having also to  accept the disadvantage of higher  village mill rates.  But the  village's   stand  was  somewhat strange, since it had  for years been supplying water  service beyond its boundaries.  Also sharing services between  areas, contrary to Gibson's questionable legal advice, is exactly  what Regional Districts are for,  and the Region had said it was  quite willing and able to handle  all administrative arrangements,  both quickly and without village  expansion.  When the expansion was  advertised, it wasn't just Sutherland's industrial land that was  going in. There was also a large  piece of agricultural reserve,  controlled by Sutherland but not  being developed, two pieces of  land the vil'age owned (one also  in the reserve), and, on the advice  of Municipal Affairs, four commercial lots from Windsor Plywood to the animal surgery.  This proposal brought immediate  complaints from the commercial  owners, who would gain nothing  but higher taxes, and from the  Regional District, who distrusted  the Village's intent for the farm  reserve. After all, the village was  on record as wishing to scrap all  the Gibsons reserve for more  development, without regard for  any farming potential there or for  its value as a greenbeit to prevent  expensive sprawl. But, villages  do better in Victoria than Regional Districts, so when the village  continued with its proposal, even  over these objections, it was  successful.  Why was Gibsons so keen on  this  expansion?      Who  knows?  It did gain the village some tax  revenue, but at the expense of  Area "E", which is hardly fair.  Does Gibsons really believe farm  land is needed for development  when there is so much  vacant  or   redevelopable   land   already  in the village?   Or maybe, since  its takeover of much  of Areas  "E" and "F" was recently defeated, it has decided to get there  by nibbling a piece  at a time.  Anyway, Gibsons got its way, at  others' expense.   Sutherland will  get   his   sewer   connection,   although at the cost of a year's  wait and higher taxes, and he is  now being told by the village he  will need a rezoning too, despite  Municipal Affairs' statement to  the   contrary.      One   can   only  admire   him   for   remaining   a  gentleman      throughout       this  ordeal.  Tidewater Craft and Gibsons Fish  Market recently held a Valentine Draw  for chocolates jointly. Pictured here  are Jane Graham and Anne Pinsonnault  of the Fish Market and Carl Drohmann of  Tidewater Craft, along with Marian  Macfarlane who made- the draw. The  winners of the chocolates were Susan  Francis, Valeri Foster, and Sandy Maerz.  Day-care  A program about pre-schoolers  organized by the Wilson Creek  Community Association, will  begin this month.  Workshops for the sharing of  skills and ideas, films, guest  speakers, and discussion groups  for the airing of frustrations and  the working out of common problems are all in the works.  The program is directed at  two groups: parents of preschoolers and those giving care.  Many of the people who deal  with pre-schoolers every day ���  not only parents, but also those  who mind young children - don't  value their work enough. They  consider themselves to be just  babysitters when really they are  an important influence on the  child's development.  We are interested in linking up  the network of pre-school care  centres - Family and In-home Day  Care, the Tot Lots and Child-  minding Co-ops, the Day Care  Centre - so that the most appropriate and highest quality of care  can be offered to every child.  The workshops will be free of  charge and child care will be provided. For further information,  please call: Donna Shugar at  885-2721 or 885-5006.  Kwahtamoss Film Society  by Joy C. Prowse  The Kwahtahmoss Film Society  closed its doors in December of  1976, and the event went largely  unannounced. Some members  are still expecting movie announcements, but for the present at  least, the Society is defunct.  The society was well known  throughout Canada as one of the  most active amongst the Federation of Film Societies. Having  weekly showings, it ranked with  the city and university clubs.  Allan Crane, who founded the  society in 1971, was the major  reason for its success. With his  love of film, his attendance at  film festivals, and his contacts  with distributors, the society had  a continuous input of new,  exciting and varied films. In  early, 1976, the society began to  flounder, but the members rallied  to help at fund-raising. Back in  its feet by the end of that season,  the control of the society changed  hands when Allan Crane moved  away from the area. The task of  promoting and organizing fell  to Eric Zasburg and Jeanette  Gordon, with the continued support of Keith Wallace.  Despite the appeal of good  movies, attendances dwindled  and the society found it impos  sible to cover expenses. So it  no choice but to fold.  Maybe it was time for a rest,  or a change. The interest is still  there, however, and many people  have shown interest in seeing  attempts made at a different  approach to film viewing. There  are many great films which are  only available in 16 m.m. form,  so the society was unable to present any of that category.  With Continuing Education  support there is a move afoot to  begin a new and different film  programme, for adults and children.  So take heart, all you film  buffs. Keep in mind new films  you may see, and think acceptable to fellow film lovers. You  may be needed to help with plans.  WANTED  Used Furniture  or What Have You  AL'S  USED FURNITURE  WE BUY BEER  BOTTLES  Gibsons 886-2812  This week by Howie White  Editor-Publisher    of    Raincoast  Chronicles.  Ever heard of the snail slider?  I never did till this morning  either when I was loading my tin  heater with a week-old Province  and there it was on page 29, a  photo of this little fish beside a  ruler. It looked a bit like a bullhead and came up to about the  three-inch mark. Beside this  picture was an aerial photograph  of a new $90 million dam in the  Tennessee River Valley. The dam  looked pretty well finished except  for a bit of scaffolding here and  there, but the valley behind it  where the reservoir should be was  dry.  The point was that the fish had  triumphed over the dam. The  snail slider is an endangered  species whose only known habitat is the riverbed this dam was  going to plug, and environmental  groups in the state had won a  supreme court battle to prevent  the Tennessee Valley Authority  from dropping its floodgates --  ever. The dam has been sitting  there abandoned now for several  months.  To me the story is both tremendously exhilarating and blackly  depressing. It is exhilarating because it demonstrated once again  that the society that represents  the greatest threat to the hope of  finishing out this century with a  livable world - the American one -  also represents the greatest  champion of that hope, that the  sane are still in there at the front  lines matching stroke for stroke  against the insane. But it is depressing because it makes me  realize how sad we ourselves,  here on the Sunshine Coast and  on the B. C. Coast as a whole,  look by comparison.  Because in case you missed it  and I can easily see how you  might 've, we are surrounded by  a threat here now, growing closer  every day, which compares in  scale to that Tennessee dam as  the dam itself compares to the  fish.  I speak of course of the threat  of    supertanker    spills,    which  -opinions and views  could, unless we do something,  knock off a hundred local species  far more valuable than the snail  slider, and catastrophically rearrange the way each and every  one of us out here lives.  Before you say to yourself "Oh,  more oilspill talk," and flip with  a yawn to Burnside's column let  me make two quick points:  1. Computer studies of currents done lately by the federal  department of the environment  show that beaches from Langdale  to Halfmoon Bay would be in the  direct path of oilspill in the  Cherry Point area.  2. We the local population, and  we alone, can at this point prevent such certain catastrophes  from happening.  As an indication of how far we  can depend on agencies of either  the federal or provincial government authorities to do this work  for us, you only have to consider  the case of the N.F.B. film produced last year to publicize the  current studies referred to above.  The film was suppressed by the  Foreign Affairs Department,  because they thought it might  irritate the Americans. And as  far as looking to the' current provincial government, one only has  to remember that it was premier  Bill Bennett who brought up the  proposal of routing the tankers to  Kitimat, which would be even  more perilous than the Juan de  Fuca route to Cherry Point.  The fact is it remains our responsibility to guard our own  homes, and if we duck that responsibility, it's an easy matter  for everyone else up the line.to  follow suit.  Probably the key to this predicament is the widespread feeling that nothing can be done by  the common citizen. This sentiment is perhaps the oil companies  most effective weapon, and one  they try desperately to maintain,  in spite of the fact they have been  forced into our waters by adverse  public opinion in California to  begin with.  The truth is that the  Mulligan speaks out  Area "F" representative  Bernie Mulligan called upon the  Coast News this week to clarify  his stance .regarding recreation  as it relates to Gibsons council  and the regional board. ��� "I  didn't offer Gibsons a deal, as  suggested by certain newspaper  headlines last week," he said,  ' 'Nancy Douglas who is a member  of our area planning committee  and myself attended their meeting asking for facts and figures  as they relate to recreation in  our area and the general direction  Gibsons is taking in regard to  the matter."  Mulligan stressed that Gibsons  refusal to co-operate with the  regional board in areas such as  water and recreation has caused  them to stagnate and is a contributing factor in this present  problem as well as being a stance  that is proving detrimental to  the entire area. "My job is to  represent the people in my area  as well as I can," said Mr. Mulligan, "which I do by holding public meetings. Now, how the hell  can I hold a meeting if I don't  have any idea where Gibsons is  going with this thing? I have to  know if they are going to join  the board or try to go it on their  own because that will determine  the quality and nature of recreation in our area. If they do go  on their own and suggest a viable  alternative to the regional concept, I will go to the people and  let them decide."  Mulligan described recreational opportunities in his area  as being unchanged since he was  a youngster. "My two primary  objections during my term of  service," said the Area "F"  representative, "are to get some  sensible action on this recreation  thing and to do something about  ensuring adequate water for  North Road."  Referring to the offending  newspaper story in which he was  described as taking a very selfish  approach, Mulligan lamented  that the offending journal seemed  "...unable to gather news other  than blowing up my name in  one inch headlines and running  unsubstantiated piece's of gossip  every time someone runs crying  to the regional board."  Guide notes  Gibsons Guides, Brownies,  Scouts and Cubs are holding a  Thinking Day Service on Monday  evening, February 21st from  7:00 - 9:00 p.m. at the United  Church Hall.

One such project we could do  well to think about here on the  Sunshine Coast is the Pittston  refinery project in Eastport,  Maine. Eastport Maine is desirable as a refinery site for the  same reason as Cherry Point  Washington - its so close to-the  Canadian border as to be almost  out of U. S. territory. The plan  submitted to the Maine Board of  Environmental Protection in April  1973 was for a major refinery to  be supplied by 250,000 (Dead  weight tons) tankers from the  middle East.  Resistance to the plan by local  resort operators and fishermen,  not in Maine but in New Brunswick, was sudden and massive.  Local press followed the environment department hearings and  large delegations of Canadians  trucked across the border to present petitions, studies, and  demonstrate. Back home they  pressured M.L.A.'s and M.P.'s  into making stands, and both  federal and provincial governments have lodged firm opposition to the U. S. State Department, stating the project represents "an unacceptable risk" to  Canadian fisheries, recreational  activities and environmental well-  being. As a result the Maine  B. E. P. has ordered Pittston to  make its peace with Canada as  a first requirement of granting  the permit, effectively killing the  project.  I submit that the only difference between the tough and  successful federal stand on the  East Coast question and the disgraceful ' hiding of evidence regarding our own spills is the  attitude ofthe local people.
