(See story below.) .  -Judith Wilson photo  otcipe 6n  nriel 10  CRTC visits Coast  "I think it's probably true to  say we get the television we  deserve," said Peter Mac-  Dbriald, director of the  Western Region for the CRTC,.  responding to questions on  broadcasting from residents of  the Sunshine -Coast 'dn Satur-  \day:v-;-i.^^-;,^v-:./^;r;'-.;.i.-  MacDonald -and; Assistant  director Virginia Krapiekfield- -  ed a wide range of questions at  a sessi���h}Gjtop^^  7vnir^^d��>t^ped >by; membensj;  of Elphinstone :Sec^  '''tSch'q.pj.';f^d6^^unj'catibnsv  class^and at Rockwood Lodge,  Sechelt in the afternoon.  Discussion ranged from  cable costs, reception and ser-  ,vice problems, through access  to the community channel, to  the French service; commercials, concerns about pornography on Pay-TV, the,need  for a reliable communication;  system for emergency use, new  technology, and ways to free  ourselves from the tyranny of  advertising.  There was good news for  cable subscribers, all of whom  complain at one time or  another of poor reception. It is  very difficult, Krapiek said, to  rind a site which is both  technically good and financially feasible for television reception ori the coast, and if it is any  consolation it is even worse in  Squamish although their  antenna is so high it can only be  serviced by helicopter. The-  good news is that the CRTC is  considering approval for all  American network signals,  ABC, NBC, CBS and PBS to be  carried by satellite; this should  improve reception immeasurably.-  ���Concern was expressed that  sports will disappear from  regular TV channels to a Pay-  TV channel and while Canada  has no authority over  American decisions the CRTC  hopes to prevent this happening to Hockey Night in Canada  and CFL football.  The First Choice Pay-TV rationale that so-called adult programming will only be shown  late Friday or Saturday night  was shot down by a parent saying these are the two worst  nights, when children are  babysitting and away from  parental supervision.  In response to concerns  about what is shown on  televison, MacDonald stressed  the importance of becoming involved in the Canadian system.  The CRTC renews the licences  of;all broadcasters every five  years at public hearings  "We welcome your opinions, we are here to serve  yoii," said MacDonald. "It is  important for communities to  come to an agreement on the  standards of values they believe  in. Your views are taken into  consideration by the commission when decisions are being  made."  Krapiek outlined the process  of intervention and said that all  written submissions are considered. If there is indication of  strong feelings about an issue,  it will be discussed in public and  those concerned given time to  talk to the commissioners. She  was able after some unwillingness by those representing :  the East Sechelt Inlet communities to discuss their con-  7cerns.ir)^bl^  problems and hopefully they  went home reassured.  Questions about access to the  community channel and expansion of programming should be  addressed 7to the cable company, MacDonald said, as each  licensee is responsible to the  commission for everything  which is broadcast.  The videotape of the Gibsons  discussion can be viewed on  ^Cha^elilQ thjs, jyeek.*,  :,>i>*.'.i,ai^;^'  'i-f  Pool tiiirt  economic cuts  by Shirley Vader  ., Cutbacks in schools and industry have finally filtered  down through to the Pender  Harbour Aquatic Centre. With  the cancellation of our two biggest pool renters, School  District No. 46 and Crown  Zellerbach, sc ne $5,700 to  $6^000 in revenue will not be  available to the Aquatic Centre  this year. Because of tight  budget restraints, both renters  were forced to cancel their programmes in the middle of last  year, 1982.  This situation, plus rising  costs in other budget areas, has  necessitated a cutback in the  pool programme, rather than  add more cost to local taxpayers. As of January 31, 1983,  the Early Bird swim will be cut  from the programme. Programme cuts have been made  where hopefully it will affect  the fewest people possible.  Now we know our 'dyed in the  wool' Early Birds aren't going  to like it because theyiike to get  up and at 'em, but the aquatic  staff do hope they will take advantage of bur Public and  Adult Only Noon swims. ,  ^    On the bright side of it all,  revenue for the pool was up  $7,000. over last year; This  means that many Pender Harbour people and people from  outlying areas are making the  pool a part of their lifestyles.  This is great and it is the aim of  the staff at the pool to encourage more and more people  to come and use their facility. If  we can continue this upward  trend of facility users, perhaps  we can return the Early Bird  swim in the Fall Programme. ;  So remember, your facility  has a lot to offer you and your  family in the way of recreation,  fitness, arid fun. If you are  wondering about something to  do for yourself, of for your  family, think of your pool!  Thank you for your patronage  and we look forward to ,your  support in the future!  r  Water export?  A legal advertisement over the name of Colin Arthur  Beach in the Vancouver Sun giving notice of an application  for a foreshore lease of approximately 10,000 square  metres along the shoreline of Hotham Sound on either side  of the waterfall from Freil Lake, has led to speculation  that what is being planned is the export of fresh water by  super tanker.  The advertisement, first spotted by Don Hadden of  Selma Park, appeared on January 20 and gives the purpose  of the lease as being 'for the manoeuvring of vessels into  position at outfall of unnamed creek draining Freil Lake'.  Members of the local Power Squadron, Chuck Williams  and Bruce Woodsworth, investigated and confirmed that a  post had been erected at that site and that by their  measurements the proposed foreshore lease stretched as  far as Harmony Islands, which area had been under consideration as a marine park.  Residents support  Early returns of a door-to-door canvass of residents of  Area E conducted by the Elphinstone Electors' Association are overwhelmingly in favour of the downzoning  voted at the last regional board meeting and coming up for  re-consideration at the next one.  The door-tb-door canvass of the area affected by the  zoning change, though not quite completed on Sunday  afternoon, stood at 109 residents in favour of the  downzoning against only nine opposed.  ���  Four rezoning by-laws pass-  fed by the Sunshine Coast  I Regional District board two  iweeks ago, will be brought  ," [back to the board by board  Chairman Lorraine Goddard,  jrfbr reconsideration, at this  -Thursday's meeting, according  ^to two directors, John. Shaske  'of Area F and JinvGurney of  AreaE.  ''/   The first two by-laws, which  "Concern the Langdale area of  :area F, were turned'down by  the board as a result, according  . -to director Shasike, of a lack of  ���understanding  by   board  -members.  I   One by-law involved the  ^rezoning of approximately 125  acres of land owned by the  y.M.C.A^fxpm A3  to  Rl  ^(agricultur^^residential) and  ; from R2 to'R'l^vhich would ex-  J elude the construction  of  v mobile homes m the area. Ac-  ^pording to Shaske, this rezon-  -ing meets wi$ the approval of  the majority cj&area residents.  , The   other-by-law,   to  establish a one-quarter acre  minimum  lotv size on  the  Y.M.C.A. property, was also  -turned down and  Shaske  believes this rezoning is also approved by area residents.  He told the Coast News he  was able to convince the chairman of the lack Of understanding among board members  and, as a result, both by-laws  will be reconsidered.  Two by-laws considered at  the same time, concerning  downzoning from one-third to  one-half acre minimum Hot  sizes in area B (Halfmoon Bay)  and 'downzoning from one-  quarter acre to one-third acre  minimum lot sizes in area E,  will also be brought back for  reconsideration, Thursday,  despite the fact that they received the approval of the board ait  the last meeting; and the planning committees in both areas  have urged approval. X,  At   least   three   boajfjd  members report being '^b^t;  bied" on the rezoning bylawsy  over the past week. 11 appears;;  as though the Langdale f^zbii-:--  ing could mean that as many as  500 new building lots might  come on the market as the  result of a proposed development by the Y.M.C.A.  Alternate director for area  C, Jack Marsden, reported that  he had been lobbied heavily on  the downzoning issue and since  he will be sitting in place' of  . director Jon McRae at Thursday's meeting, he has made an  .investigation of the issue on his  own.  Marsden told the Coast  News that he would not reveal -  his decision before Thursday,  because he was "sick to death"  of being lobbied, but he would  definitely vote his own conscience on the question.  According to:Marsden,  director McRae will; absent  himself from themeeting  because of a potential "conflict  of interest" in thecase.  Meanwhile7 the Elphinstone  Electors' Association will hold  a special meeting of area  resiiierits ;in  robm; 101  at  Elphihstbrie high  school  r^briight, Monday, at 7:30p.m.,  >0oydiscuss the downzoning  -tissue. The Association polled  Ih&area residents on the  weekend, concerning the  downzoning issue and will  report the results at  that  meeting. (See press releaseback  page.)

Mrs. Kolibas' resignation was required if she wished  to run for mayor as municipal  law does not allow either incumbent aldermen to run or  contenders to run for both  alderman and mayor. If Mrs.  Kolibas wins the election as she  expects, she will become mayor  for the remainder of the term,  which ends in November. If she  is; defeated however, she will  lose her aldermanic seat  because of the.resignation requirement. Mrs. Kolibas, as  senior member, has six years  experience on council; no other  member of council has been in  office for more than a year.  Mrs. Kolibas made the  following statement to the  Coast News:   A  I wish tomake a formal statement as to my reasons for  resigning my aldermanic seat  on the village of Sechelt council, and subsequently running  for rriayor.  I sincerely regret that the  mayor saw fit to resign his post  before his term expired and I  tried unsuccessfully to persuade him to wait until his term  expired., However, as he has  stated, he found it necessary to  leave at the present time.  I did not wish the mayor's  seat to be taken Oyer by anyone  ^wjthout anelectiojjtsoJ erjose toX^  "put my name fpfward1 as"seriib��'"  member of the present council.  I am still interested irt keeping the village a nice place for  the villagers and feel that  anything the residents enjoy the  tourists will also.  If we have a place we like  ourselves, the tourists and  visitors will like it and pass the  word on. ;  T agree with some of the.concerns of former mayor Koch as  stated in a recent newspaper:.ar'-,  ���s.-:; tfele,^Jb^sJ^e^l^^i^ He had  seen firto'^tick r^fnsguhs";  If I am elected in the.forthcoming by-election I vvill continue to keep the interests of the  village at heart and do my best  to be available to all concerned  citizens by being at the  municipal hall in the mayor's  office part of each day.       V  Lee to challenge  for Sechelt mayor  Former Sechelt alderman  and regional board director,  Charles Lee, told the Coast  News Sunday that he will be filing papers Monday, January  24th, to run for mayor of  Sechelt. Lee said that he had  given the matter a great deal of  thought and he felt that his running would be, "...in the best  interests of Sechelt".  Outlining his experience in  municipal government "going  back to the '30s", Lee said that  he will run on his record of contributions to government on  the, Sunshine Coast. Lee also  stated that the issue in the  March 19th election will be one  of "experience". He said that  with three new aldermen on  council and the addition of a  possible fourth inexperienced  member following the election,  there is "an urgent need for experienced people on the team".  When asked by the Coast  News reporter if he would take  the Sechelt seat on the regional  board if elected, Lee said, "It is  essential for the mayor to sit on  the regional board/'  Mr. Lee resigned his positions on both regional board  and Sechelt council last spring,  in what he termed a "protest"  over what he considered to be  irresponsible financial decisions by the board.

They call this winter on the Sunshine Coast. -Ne��iiicionHaypht.i(i  <i' Coast News, January 24,1983  Tlae wl��fe���� ��f resident��  The news that two "down-zoning" by-laws passed at  the last regional board meeting will be reconsidered by  the board this week, (see story page 1) raises important  questions about control of local communities.  In both down-zoning cases, the overwhelming majority of local residents in Areas B and E have consistently  and historically supported the need for larger minimum  lot sizes. Area Planning Committees in both areas have  recommended larger lot sizes for both aesthetic and environmental reasons.  Despite this support, however, a vocal minority, consisting largely of land developers and those who would  seek to profit by smaller lot sizes, are still trying to  thwart the will of the majority.  This week, the regional board has the opportunity to  put to rest once and for all the fears of the residents of  Areas B and E that smaller minimum lot sizes will  destroy not only the semi-rural character of their communities, but the fragile environments as well.    .  It may well be argued by those who would prefer the  smaller, quarter acre minimum lot size, that because  larger lots are more expensive, they are not in the interests of economic development in the area. If this is indeed the case, then why are these same interests opposed  to the quarter acre zoning by-law for the YMCA property? It appears that the answer lies in the fact that a  potential 500 new building lots in that area might  depress the prices of their own properties.  The wishes of local residents must be respected on this  issue. Directors must not allow community control to  fall into the hands of the minority. The credibility of  local democracy is at stake.  Here he comes again!  Don't look now, folks, but he's riding to the rescue  again. The indefatigable Charles Lee has decided to  throw his hat into the local political ring one more time  and provide us with the benefit of 'his experience'.  It is true, is it not, that we all acquire experience with  the passing of the years.? The voters of Sechelt and the  Sunshine Coast, for example, have picked up some experience of politics Lee-style in the past few years.  Politics Lee-style consists, it would appear, of sowing  dissension and havoc wherever the man puts in an appearance. For almost five years, Lee contributed a  seemingly unending series of public letters casting scorn,  ridicule and abuse on the heads of those who did not  agree with him. During his time in office he brought the  Sechelt council and the regional board to each other's  throats; he virtually single-handedly destroyed the airport commission, causing some very respected names indeed to pronounce him impossible to work with.  It is not too much to say that much of the ill-will that  has characterized local politics in recent years is of  Charles Lee's instigation. His election as Sechelt's  mayor would mean his reappearance on the regional  board and the whole nasty business would begin again. /  Heaven fbrfend!  1    ...from the files of the COAST^IEWS  5 YEARS AGO  Approximately   250  people   packed   themselves into Madeira Park  Community   Hall   on  Saturday, January 21st,  to   make   their   views  known to the representatives   of   BiC.

On  December 7, 1941 Japan had attacked Pearl Harbour and declared  war on both the U.S.A. and Canada. Our Navy took charge of  rounding up the Japanese fishboats, some of them very fine ones.  Engine parts were removed so that the vessels would not run, then  the Navy assigned larger boats to tow the seized craft to the Fraser.  River, where they were eventually sold for whatever they would br-.  ing. An evacuation of Pacific coast people of Japanese descent to  Musings  John Burnside  Last week we took an iri-  troductory look at the concerns  of coastal fishermen about the  report prepared by Dr. Peter  Pearse about the future of the  salmon fishery.  Fishermen are principally  concerned, it would appear,  about the nature of- the  buyback of fishing licences to  take place in the next decade till  the fishing fleet is half its present size and about the  possibility of fish ranching on a  giant scale as has been instituted by the Weyerhauser  Corporation in Oregon.  We'll come to the buyback  arrangements proposed by^  Pearse later, but for now let!s;  continuedo contemplate wnaP ���  Pearse seems to be recommen  ding for the future of the west  coast fisheries.  A brochure distributed by  the United Fishermen and  Allied Worker's Union quotes  this passage fronrDr. Pearse's  ' report:   '-'--." '"J.!-  "The free enterprise system  depends on someone having  control over all of the factors of  production, including natural  resources and ensuring that  they are used in the most profitable way. Common property  resources have no place in the  market system of economic  organizations; indeed,���.������common property is repugnant to  the principles of a market  economy, arid those that invoke the virtures bf free enterprise should be the least  satisfied with the free-for-all of  open fisheries."  It is surely this passage from  the Pearse Report which has  aroused the fears of fishermen  that they are to be squeezed  systematically out of their  livelihoods for the benefit of  some 'economic organization'  which will control the fisheries  entirely. We cannot resist the  temptation to observe that the  free .enterprise system was  originally founded to break up  court-granted monopolies  whose control of 18th Century  economic life was as total as  Dr. Pearse seems to feel is how  desirable.  Let's turn for a moment in  another direction for an example of what one man has done  for the salmon stocks on the  creek which runs through his  property. Just north of Saltery  Bay a retired logger took up his  retirement residence in 1955 or  thereabouts. There was about  one mile of creek oh his property to which a few salmon still  returned.7  The gentleman walked that  creek for 20 years making  observations about the creek  and its fish. On one occasion he  rioted that some otters had been  digging in the gravel and  wondered why. He dug in the  gravel of the creek bed to find  out. What he found were bunches of tiny salmon fry which  had been left high and dry when  the creek changed its course,  which is the way of mountain  creeks. Seventy-five per cent of  salmon fry never make it to the  sea, he told us.  inland towns and camps commenced as of February 26, 1942.:  Many of them were loyal naturalized Canadian citizens and some  had been born in B.C. A few of the Sunshine Coast evacuees included the Konishi family of Porpoise Bay as well as Kay Hatashita  and ted Hyashi, who operated a floating store supplying the  fishing community at Egmont. Photo by Jean Whittaker was made  from the steps of Pinehaven Guest House when she taught at Irvine's Landing School. Caption by Helen Dawe  Slings & Arrow^L __  [George Matthews���**  He dug a channel into the  salmon fry in the upstream  gravel. He continued his low-  key caretaking of the little  creek for 20 years throughout  his retirement. I visited him in  the fall of 1981 in the company  of some locals interested in  salmon enhancement.  What we saw was a tiny creek  thronged with spawning  salmon. They came in three  waves he told us and the total  number returning yearly was  perhaps 20,000 fish.  Our retired salmon enhancer  has not gone completely unnoticed. The National Film  B'oatrd'.has made a short  documentary entitled The Man  Who ' Digs Tor Fish, but no  . lesson has apparently been  learned from this example of  what can be accomplished by  one man working intelligently  on one creek.  j Surely it is possible that the  fishermen to be displaced by  the fleet cutbacks���and even  the UFAW acknowledges there  are too many boats chasing too  few fish���-could be put to work  to tend a creek along the lines  pioneered by the retired logger  described above.  What exercises the resent-.  ment of the fishermen seems to  be Dr. Pearse's conviction that  only a mega-project can save  the salmon, a mega-project  made profitable by requiring  little in the way of human  labour. Weyerhauser's experiment in Oregon does not seem  to be a success and such an  enterprise does little to answer  the questions that fishermen  have about their futures.  The fishermen are right when  they point to the fact that giving  giant corporations control of  resources has not led to wise  management in the forests or  mines of B.C. They see no  reason to believe that Pearse's  diagnosis is any more likely to  lead to wise management of  salmon.  A Red,  Red Rose  Just before the last regional  board by-election last spring, I  happened to be part of a brief  conversation held in the street  outside the village offices in  Sechelt. The talk involved the  qualifications needed to run for  the regional board. One of the  men was a candidate, who also  happened to be a senior citizen.  One of the other men was a  local entrepreneur who was  definitely not a staunch  regional board supporter.  '���The trouble with local  politics is that there are too  many retired people involved.  In fact that's the whole trouble  with: this Coast ��� too many  retired people���,Qn j fixed Jn-;.  COJlieS^'- ��� :;-;;r.  The candidate tried to point  out that in the entire region  about 30 per cent of the population consisted pf retired people  and certainly they should have  representation on the board.  The entrepreneur suggested  that the area would be better  off if the "old people" let go of  the reins and turned it over to.  younger people.  That was about eight months  ago, when business was not  great, but better than it is today.  Things have turned around,  : it seems. Now those "old people on fixed incomes" have  become an important part of  whatever economic security  there is in the area. Those people on fixed incomes who live  and shop on our Coast have  suddenly become an important  potential market. Some  businessmen have not awakened to the fact yet, but those  secure incomes represent a very  significant economic force.  Consequently, that economic power will continue to  translate into social power as  well. I'm not a betting man,  but I'm willing to guess that  had that conversation mentioned earlier been held today,  the aforementioned entrepreneur would hold his  tongue.  Have you hugged a senior  citizen today?  * * *  The plethora of comment  coming from the various in-  O, my luve is like a red red rose  That's newly sprung in June:  O' my luve is like the melodie  That's sweetly played in tune.

To get.a  perspective on the whole issue,  which may have an unpleasant  propensity to escalate into  something ugly, the innocent  public really needs a glossary of  terms to be able to follow the  arguments, these are not of--,  ficial, but have been put  together from inference by an  ignorant soul who has been  bombarded by arguments from  the tube.  First, there appears to be  something called "high class  erotica"; This seems to invob/e  scenes :ofj,marginaily: normal;  sexual behaviour between two.  members of the opposite sex,  one of whom earns more than  $100,000 ji year. This classification tends to tolerate racial'  mixture and a large difference,  in the ages of the participants.  who do what they do in places ,  like private jets, Jacuzzis, or,  solariums of large mansions.  Then we have just plain*  "erotica". This involves-  heterosexual fun between no-  fewer than four participants. It  usually occurs among university students, housewivesii  gardeners, or postmen and is,  definitely non-violent.  Next  is  "middle class;  erotica" which involves un-  draped play between husband  and wife in the privacy of the.ir,  own kitchen, including nothing7;  more than what the average  missionary might,get up to. :  Violence goes no further than  playful pats on the buttocks.  A further category, called  "soft-core pornography", \  seems to mean just about \  anything between consenting  adults, which requires at least :  one prop: whipping cream, .  Mazola oil, or ironing board, :  binoculars, etc. The activities :���  involved never, take place:  anywhere so mundane \ as a -;  bedroom or kitchen. *  The area of most current ]  controversy is "hard-core por- ;  nography" and, from what I *  can gather, you don't want to f  know about this. It is apparent- \  ly very big on pain, humilia-- *  tion, and disgusting things.

From the beginning, the vast majority has been  in favour of larger lot sizes,  starting with one-half acre and  compromising to one-third  acre. There was every indication from the residents that  their wish was to keep their  rural atmosphere.  '������; We have held two public  meetings for our Settlement  Plan and at both meetings there  was an overwhelming feeling  for the larger lots. Because of  the length ot time it was taking  the Board to complete our  plan, we asked for a  moratorium, or a by-law for  our one-third acre lots.  ��� The by-law was set in motion  and we had two public  meetings, both indicating a  strong majority for the K zone  proposal (one-third acre lot size  minimum). This proposal went  to the Regional Board and was  then sent to Victoria. Because  of-'a small pressure group, it  yiras delayed some time. Final  ly, it was passed, and we recently received it back. We learned  it had to be voted on again by  the Regional Board. This was  done and it was passed on  January 13th.  Before we had a chance to sit  back and rest, we were told that  this by-law had to be brought  back and voted on all over  again. Why? We have reason to  feel that the Real Estate, and  Developers had put on the  pressure again.  After six public and government approvals, it would seem  - that our democratic right of  majority is being violated by a  few. We are asking the Board  of Directors to remember their  oath of office and correct this  injustice.  We hope that when this  comes up for a vote again on  January 27th, that they. will  vote with their conscience and  give us a unanimous vote for  adoption of this by-law.  We are having another  public meeting in Room 101,  Elphinstone Secondary School  at 7:30 p.m. Monday, January  24th. Residents of Area E,  please come out to this.meeting  and help us correct this injustice:  Sincerely,  B. Parker,  Chairman of Elphinstone  Settlement Plan  The media distorts  Editor:  In the editorial comment  "Where are we going?" you  question the double standard  that is apparent in the mass  media's hostility towards the  government of Poland for jailing a few leaders of Solidarity,  and the indifference to the  murder of tens of thousands of  Indians and peasants by the  military dictatorships of Central America. The editorial suggests that maybe the answer lies  in the fact that the Poles are  white and the peasants in Central America mostly Indian.  I think there is a more objective explanation for the contradictory treatment of human  rights violations. The mass  media in'-> Canada and in: all  other ��� * Western, democracies''  is owned by private Interests?'  mainly multinational corporations. Aside from making a  profit for its,parent companies,  the media also has the responsibility of shaping public opinion to ensure a favourable  climate in which the multinationals can operate.  Looked at from this angle,  the media's treatment of  various issues is very consistent.  Anything that can possibly  be interpreted as a human  rights violation by a socialist  government, is blown out of all  proportion. Why?  Because  Skookum  ...tificUte  Mark Guignard  My office is so small...  I offered it to Clark Kent. He rebuked  me by saying, "Superman prefers  phone booths which afford more  space."

On the other hand, in those  areas of the world where capital  is unrestrained and free to extract as much money as possible, violence against the people  is played down and even excused by the "necessity" to resist  socialism. The direct connection between the multinationals and the governments  which protect their interests is  never mentioned:  In Canada and other  Western countries, the media  tries to hide the true nature of  the economic system by constantly equating it with  democracy.  The reason there was such a  negative" reaction to-the  Bishops' statement 6h;the  economy was not because they  expressed sympathy for the  poor and unemployed. What  the government and corporate  leaders resented was that they  identified the cause  "capitalism".  The only way we are going to  get an honest mass media in this"  country is to put it under public  control, and the only way we  are going to get rid of  unemployment and poverty  here, or anywhere else, is to put  the corporations under public  control.  Hans Penner,  RR2, Gibsons  Whistler  bail-out  Editor,  How can the Social Credit  government rationalize the  bailout of the luxury ski resort  on Whistler mountain?  After giving them the Crown  Land, now apparently they are  going to give them $6.5 million  plus assuming their debt for  $2.7 million.  And then they have the  audacity to say it won't cost the  taxpayers a nickel.  Where does the government  get their money?  It seems very strange to me  that the Socreds don't have  money for the sick and  destitute, but they do for  facilities for people to tie  boards on their feet to go  sliding down mountains.  I say this is another good  reason why they will lose the  next election.  Ed Nicholson  Coast News, January 24,1983  $6,795  HOT LINE 885-7512  Skookum Auto)  i Dealer 7381  Editor:  It disturbed me to discover  that people on the Sunshine  Coast are being heavily fined  for carrying on business in their  homes.  I have long been in disagreement with zoning regulations  that designate certain areas or  neighbourhoods to be residential only and other areas to be  used exclusively for work.  "This separation creates enormous rifts in people's emotional lives".  Children grow up in areas  where there are no men except  on weekends; women are trapped in their homes and  relegated to the role of  housekeepers, and men spend  most of their waking hours at  work away from their families  and a completely separate part  of their lives with their families  and away from, their work.  The fostering of this separa-'  tion is inappropriate to the  times we live in and provides an  enormous obstacle to. the   ���.  growth of family members into  creative, responsive, sane par-  '���'  ticipants in healthy, lively,;'  evolving society. [-   -  Work should hot be looked ;v.  upon as toil or drudgery; nor is ,.  leisure time the only time of real , .:-  living. This is a fallacy that we   \  allow our elected representatives to perpetuate through  by-laws and zoning regulations  that lock us ever tighter into old  and unworkable patterns of  thought and action, which are  in turn passed on to our  children.  I believe that our elected  representatives should be en-'  couraged to take another look  at the zoning regulations  presently in force on the Sunshine Coast, with the idea of  creating a strongly decentralized distribution of workplaces,  keeping in mind the necessity of  protecting people from the  harmful effects of noxious  fumes and heavy traffic.  ",.< yy   -vTHancy,Conway,*  Water  export?  Editor,  We will lose one of the finest  fishing and cruising areas on  the Sunshine Coast if we do not  respond to the fine print hidden  in the legal section of the Vancouver Sun dated January 20,  1983.  One person has applied for a  water lease of some 75 acres, or  30 hectares of our ocean directly in front of the beautiful Freil  Falls in Hotham Sound, just a  mile south of the Harmony  Islands Marine Park.  I can guess that this large  area is required to manoeuvre  huge tankers for loading the  pure water of Freil Lake to export to the United States.  Your letters to the District  Land manager, 4240 Manor  St., Burnaby, B.C. V5G 1B2,  quoting file #2401290 may help  prevent this major loss of our  heritage.  Don Hadden  Thank you  Editor:  On behalf of the ladies of the  G.K. Care Centre Auxiliary, I  would like to thank your  newspaper for the coverage you  have given our club in 1982.

Regional director Brett McGillivray reported  that it was fairly certain that the  lease for the propane tanks on  the wharf would not be renewed in 1984 and Selia Karsten  had good news for those struggling through hard economic  times with the announcement  of a "Survival Carnival".  Brett said that after a conversation with the Lands Branch in  . which he fully explained the  propane tank situation, he was  convinced Canadian Propane  were going to have to move. He  said there are lots of locations  out towards the pulp mill that  would be safe.  Brett also mentioned that the  Roberts Creek Settlement Plan  comes   up   for  review  in  November, having been in effect for three years. The official  advisory committee will go  over the plan to  see what  changes if any are required but  the plan will be discussed at  public meetings as well.  i    Brett also mentioned that  there are some 20 grants  available for community projects. He said at present they're  for labour only but the government's March budget should  provide money for capital and  help for parks.    .  Selia Karsten was very enthusiastic about the Survival  Carnival being sponsored by  Ensemble Theatre and Continuing Education March 5 and 6  at Elphinstone school. She  described it as; a celebration of  having survived this far and a  help in surviving what's to  come.  The two day event will be an-n  open house for the whole Sunshine Coast with panel discussions and booths and  demonstrations of such skills as  soapmaking, mending,  sharpening tools, canning and  preserving. Everything is free  and it promises to be entertaining as well as informative.  Saturday lunch will be a  brownbagger accompanied by  entertainment by Ensemble  Theatre. Dinner wijl be potluck  followed by a play for the  whole family. Sunday's activities will culminate in a giant  swap meet in the late after-,  noon.  It's a novel approach and  should provide some worthwhile ideas. Phone Selia at  885-7388 for information or if  you have any suggestions.  Selia also reported that  Ensemble Theatre's application for an addition to the  Roberts Creek Community  Hall to make it a more viable  performing arts centre was  turned down but there are other  grants to apply for and they will  keep trying.  More encouraging was the  news that the Hydro bill for the  hall for the last two months was  only $95.70 whereas the oil bill  for the same period last year  was $357. Already the new electric furnaces are paying for  themselves!  DISCIPLINE MEETING:  The Roberts Creek Elementary Parents Auxiliary will be  meeting this Wednesday,  January 26, at 7:30 p.m. in the  grade 4 classroom. Drew  McKee will speak on "Creative  Discipline", a topic most  parents should find relevant  and informative. Please attend  and support your auxiliary.  The auxiliary still needs  donations of kids clothing  before a bargain sale can be  held. Please send all donations  to the school or phone Marion  Jolicoeur at 885-3605 if you require pickup or have any questions.  LIBRARY GROWING:  The Roberts Creek Library is  getting bigger and better all the  time. During 1982 over $700  worth of new books were purchased and there's some new  reading material nearly every  week. Among recent acquisi-  tions are Belva Plain's new  novel "Eden Burning", a book  on small appliance repairs, an  expose of commercial foods,  and a 15 volume set of  children's selections.  The library is also hoping for  a reading roOih |rant of $ 1,000  for books.: It will mean the  library will be even more  cramped for space and the idea  discussed by the community  association executive of a second story or extra storage  space afforced by a gabled roof  on the present building was  very attractive.  VETS DINNER:  Senior vets and members of  the community were treated to  dinner by the Roberts Creek  Legion Ladies Auxiliary Sunday, January 16. The food was  delicious as always and  everybody was very pleased tb  get out for the social afternoon.  Legion and ladies auxiliary  members are again reminded  that it's time to pay their 1983  dues.  / Audrey's Coffee Service  Modern Coffee Makers supplied  & serviced at no charge  Pay only for supplies  you use  No office too big  or too small  NEVER RUN OUT  ��\      885-3716  by Peggy Connor  TREASURE HUNT:  Gather the treasures that you  are tired of, or the craftwork  that you are proud of, but  would donate to a worthy  cause, and save them for the  Sechelt Intermediate Care  Auxiliary's big Treasure Auction that will be held in Sechelt  on May IsL  SECHELT BURNS NIGHT:  Sechelt Legion.

When I said hello, Joe wanted  to.know whether I knew how to  get a really good hangover.  "Why no," I replied. "Well,  I'll tell you," he said,' 'but first  I want to put a 'thumbs down'  to Harvey Jones in the paper."  Sorry, pal, that's the other  paper, but you can put it in the  Personals or under Announcements with us. "Never  mind, here it is. It's called a  Kamikaze in the evening and a  Hari Kari the next morning.  Four parts vodka, one part Triple Sec and one part Rose's lime  cordial.  Now for something completely different. Sylvia  Woodsworth brought to my attention on Saturday a legal  notice from a Vancouver  paper. It was a notice of intention to apply for a disposition  pf Crown Land. The land in  question is that at Harmony  Falls and it states that "the purpose for which the disposition  is required is: Manoeuvring of  vessels into position at outfall  of unnamed creek draining  Freil Lake". Now, maybe  nothing will come of this, as the  legal courses are many, but it  would seem that large vessels  would be positioned below  Harmony Falls (a breathtaking  1400 foot drop) and taking on  water for shipment to "who  knows where"? But I can  guess. Bruce Woodsworth and  Chuck Williams went lip Saturday to view the site in question,  so watch the Coast News for  developments.

Friedman met with some  concerned citizens and with  Area B representative Pat Murphy to study the situation. The  matter is to be brought up again  before the Sunshine Coast  Regional District for further  discussions.  Most residents will be happy  to know that the Redrooffs  Trail controversy is by no  means a closed book.  Creek Auxiliary  by Madeline Grose  The Roberts Creek Hospital  Auxiliary met on January 10th,  with twenty-three members  present. It was a busy meeting,  with some time being devoted  to the reading and discussion of  the proposed new constitution  and by-laws for the combined  St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliary  -Sunshine Coast. Everyone was  infavour of a day in March for  the first meeting of members of  this new auxiliary.  We were reminded that on  February 23rd there will be the  annual meeting of volunteers.  This year it will be at Roberts  Creek Community Hall and we  are responsible for providing  tea and coffee. Betty Merrick  has agreed to organize this. It is  felt this would be an appropriate time to clarify if there  should be a time limit for  members of volunteer committees, as is the case with auxiliary  officers.  Bunny Shupe said she is  looking for a new Gift Shop  committee. This committee  meets every two months.  Anyone interested can phone  her at 885-9264. This is  something that might interest  some of our new members.  This year's bazaar was mentioned and some alternative  ways of raising money can be  considered. Plenty of time for  this, so anyone with good ideas  .can let us hear th^em at future <  ' meetings: Charlotte��� Raines '  then told us; there will be a  Blood Donor Clinic in Sechelt  on February 15th, between 3:00  and 8:00 p.m. She will be very  happy to receive offers of help,  so phone her at 885-3457.  One important point is that  this will be the only clinic on the  Coast, so Gibsons donors  please take note and let's have a  record turn-out for this most  importanfcontribution.  Our next meeting will be on  Monday, February 14th, at  Roberts Creek Legion 11:00  a.m. as usual.  pillage of jieriTeit  NOTICE TO ELECTORS  The Court of Revision shall sit at the Municipal Hall  on February 9th, 1983, at 10:00 a.m. and shall hear all  complaints and correct and revise the list of electors.

We can only hope  that in the particular case of the  area B downzoning, the outcome will be the same and that  certain specified areas will have  half-acre lots.  This should be a golden opportunity for our representative to redeem himself in the  eyes of the majority of his constituents and of his advisory  committee by casting his vote in  favour of the zoning laid out in  the local Settlement Plan. It is  high time that this Settlement  Plan was put in place and carried out, thus avoiding all the  controversy which arises each  time some group decides to  carry out its projects. Let's  hope that our representative  will start pushing for this right  away.  THE HAGGIS AND THE  PIPES:  Those who are Scottish,  along with those who would  like to be, gathered in force at  Lord Jim's Lodge on Friday  for a delicious roast beef and  haggis dinner to celebrate the  birth of our own Robert Burns.  Richard Tomkies was an eloquent chairman who introduced the various speakers on,the  programme. John Hamilton  did justice to the Immortal  Memory and was joined by all  in his rendition of "The Star p'  Rabbie Burns", accompanied  by Nicky Weber. ,;  Following dinner, there was  entertainment for everyone  -dancing to the great music pf  the Ken Dalgleish trio in one  room, or joining in the singing  of Scottish songs with Reg Dixon in the other. In all, a great  evening.  Those of you who missed this  one can still celebrate, the occasion next Saturday, when the  Sechelt Legion Pipe Band has  : its "Burns Night", pickets for  this one are available .at the  7%iirdware store; hi the 1W��  >\: Lord 'Jim's nextfbig7efrent  will be on February 12th, when  they are planning a St,^ValenH  tine's Dinnejr^-and anc^herl  "fun" evening.

A GREAT EVENING:  Last Tuesday was a most  delightful evening at Elphie's in  Gibsons, when the performance of "An Evening With  Pauline" was presented. Fran  Berger gave a very moving performance as Pauline and is to  be congratulated on her  remarkable memory and her  sensitivity. She never faltered  throughout the whole presentation. This is no easy task when  there is so much to remember.  I, for one, felt that I had got to  know Pauline Johnson because  of this evening and intend  reading some more of her  works. f  f'Dettyti  DRAFTING!  John Burnside, who played  the parts of the men in  Pauline's life was also outstanding and liyed each part to  perfection. A very versatile lad-  dy is our John! There is talk of  yet another performance in the  future at Madeira Park and I  would like to suggest that if you  haven't managed to see this  "show" you should make a  point of doing so.

Isolate one aspect and experi-  m ment."/  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Alterations in your environment/force or allow you to  switch to a different  wavelength, allowing concentration on and development of  ottyer aspects of your personality. Restrictions are lessened,  giving power and a sense of  perfection.  GEMINI (May 21-June 21)  / The aura of peace restored  pervades your atmosphere at  /start of week, encouraging you  to relax and luxuriate. Beware  of working too quickly, leaving  tasks incomplete or inadequate, and of being too  forceful and overbearing,  resulting in strifeat week's end..  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  There is a ray of consciousness known as harmony  through conflict. Indeed conflict is meant to activate harmonious change. Quiet reflection will allow you to tie emotional upsets into larger concepts underlying the workings  of life.  LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)  You need to have four or five  areas of activity going at once  this week in order to distract  yourself from feelings of  boredom and restlessness.

Try to find this'  strength and certainty within  yourself and reflect it to others,  rather than asking that they  reflect it to you.  LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)  You may feel frustrated,  "squeezed", due to constraints  placed on your expansive  energy, because you neglect  consideration of enormous  demands required as is. Accept  constrictions with good grace  and bring to fruition goals  within your grasp.  SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)  You are the recipient of grace  and pragmatic aid this week.  Your penetrating gaze will  pierce the premature illusion of  achievement, allowing you to  withdraw within to garner  resources for further forging of  your life's metal. Determination to overcome imperfection  is predominant. r  SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-  Dec.21)  You feel generous, compassionate, and a pillar of  strength, capable of solving the  world's problems. Turn that  energy inward to grapple with  co-ordinating your individual  experiences with your life's  philosophy. See Aries message.  CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-  Jan.19)  Rest from strife continues,  but you are bothered by  fragmented details which  might suggest future material  trouble. Do not be over-  concerned , but coolly gather  more information as circumstances permit. Thus trouble can be averted.  AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Like Sagittarius,/ you feel;  strongly centred and ready for  anything. This position of .  superiority may cause you to  misinterpret someone's meaning: sensing cruelty, you may  be cruel in return.

The fact that Banacek has been  lodged in the second tier seems  to be the main reason. Like  most of the others, including  the screws, Jake has tunnel-  vision when it comes to drugs.  Pot and heroin are  synonymous in his mind. To  him, a dope-pusher is a ddpe-  pusher is a dope-pusheK  They have allowed Billy to  bring a few books with him.  Among them is Siddhartha by  Herman Hesse, a particular  cult favourite of the time. I  haven't read the book yet and  when Billy gets done with it, he  passes it down through the  bars. "Here, man. It'll get your  head out of this place," he says.  Rapt on my bunk, I follow  the existential odyssey of  Hesse's philosophical hero.  Under these conditions, the  book seems fraught with  unspeakably profound meaning. The moment I am finished  it, I reach for my pencil.  The vague goal blurs  before the groping eyes  the fairy tales of youth  are at once behind and  beyond us.

Like many  another young man from the  hinterlands of B.C., he played  in bands in the strip joints and  rock clubs and dreamed of  making the big time. Then Elvis  Presley died.  Today Morris Bates has  parleyed a resemblance to the  dead king of rock and roll and a  remarkable ability to capture  the Presley sound, into an international career which has  taken him around the world.  Bates' International Tribute  to Elvis has taken him to every  major entertainment capital in  the world. He has played  before full houses in Las Vegas  and Tokyo, made a film about  Presley in Johannesburg and,  this week, he brings his show in-  to Elphie's Cabaret in  downtown Gibsons.  Monday through Saturday  this week Bates will present his  tribute to the departed king of  rock and roll for local Presley  fans. His 90-minute offering  reportedly spans the three  decades of Presley's career  from the raunchy '50s, to the  sequin-clad triumphant comeback in Las Vegas not long  before his death.  So, if you can remember  rocking to You Ain't Nothing  But a Hound Dog, or melting to  Bridge Over Troubled Water as  you and the king grew into  maturity, you'll want to catch  B.C.'s own internationally acclaimed Tribute to Elvis at  Elphie's this week.  the source and current of the  river  the bedsilt of the river .  the stupidity of the river  the wisdom of the river  the joy of the river  the endless tearflo w of the  river  the anxiety of the river  the peace of the river  ?<��� the song of the river  the omnipresence of the river  the soul of the river  and the river  and the river  and the river.  The poem pours out of me in  a flood of pellmell images. Up  until now, I have written  nothing but sordid realism,  triggered directly by the glum  surroundings. This one is right  butofleft field. I am not entirely certain what all of it means  but it has a good, transcendent  power about it. Somehow it  seems an effective catharsis for  all the negativity this straitened  place has foisted on me. I pass it  up to Billy. "Wow, man," he  sayd. "Right on!"  My friendship with Billy  Banacek does not go unnoticed  by the big-time junk peddlers  on the second tier. Up to this  point, they have pretty much  ignored me: Now, a couple of  them become quite chummy,  addressing me by name and  tossing me the odd, illicit tailor-  made. Apparently, I have  become a "solid guy" in their  eyes.  The last thing I want in this  joint is to draw undue attention  to myself. All I desire to do is  ; serve my hitch and get the hell  sprung. Suddenly, I seem to  have acquired a new status that  is starting to single me out from  the other cleaners. I accept  their overtures warily but cordially enough. Since I don't  have much time left anyhow,  what harm can it possibly do?  In my naivete, it doesn't occur  tb me for a second that I might  begetting set up.  ��� To be continued...

I got out my little pocket computer and figured it out for  her. "Oh," she says, "but I don't carry one of those things around and if I did I  wouldn't know how to figure it."  I explained to her that if she wants to convert kilograms (kgs) to pounds (lbs) the  closest and simplest way is to divide the price quoted in kilograms by two, and then  deduct a further 10%. This is not exact, but close, as there are roughly 2.2 pounds  per kilogram.  But I say to you, why bother? Why go through this exercise, anyway? The prices are quoted competitively in  kilograms, grams, litres; mlllilltres everywhere we go.l know I still convert occasionally, but it's wrong. We are so far  dOwn the road how on rrietrification,(whether we wanted it or not) it's with us. It has cost us all as consumers and taxpayers a staggering sum to make this conversion. Stop and think for a moment the magnitude of this change in the  cost of machinery alone. In every form of human endeavour, be it in gauging the wind or weather, distance, clothing,  canning, manufacturing, construction, land surveying, farming, professions, ��� everywhere in every way it's brought  change.  And yet, having come so far at such a price, we can't afford to turn back, for it affects not only us, but every country  that deals with us. In exports and imports they have had to adapt to serve us; that is, those who were not already  metric. Some declined, and their exports are no longer on our shelves.  So we will, of necessity, have to forget pounds, ounces, yards, feet and inches. We must think metric and simply get  used to it. Our children have been learning metric for years. They have ail sorts of names for measurements in  technology we, who are past 60, have not even heard of yet.  In brief, pick up that piece of meat, examine it, decide for yourself how many meals it will make, divide that into the  computed price for the package and say to yourself, either, "yes, not bad, I'll take it" or "I can't afford it" and put it  back. That's what it really comes down to, or, as they say, that's the bottom line. Let's accept and think metric. The  sooner we do, the sooner we'll be settled down on this issue. We just can't turn back now!  REAL WIN  50.00   GROCERY   DRAW!  REFUSE  CONTAINERS  by Rubbermaid  ���With Snap-lock lid  ���Noiseless,   seamless,   easy   to  clean.

Canada-wide this week has  ^tbeen on the potential Wayne  ^Gretskys and Richard  i^Brodeurs of the Minor Hockey  llLeagues as Minor Hockey  f^Week was celebrated January  I'i! 15-22.  The 206 players in the Sun-  Coast Minor Hockey  ^Association are part of an  *';organization of 35,000 players  <;; across Canada. Founded eight  ^ years ago, the SCMHA began  r;;with 400 mernbers and has sustained an average of 200 since  ���*:;then. The first^year saw six  }" 'pup' teams in the 4^year age  ���/group alone;7 .and three, girls  ^teams. The assoeiationH^vas  ��; presided over by;^Gordon Dix^  ';;on, the first-president and  ^;Hazel Kwasney-ais secretary:  "\��   Today 15 team^ake to the  Ittce at a cost of $40,000 of which  ^$34,000  is  for  ice  time.  ���*gjVolunteers raised $13,000 lastv  l^year to help offset this amount.  ||jThis has already been exceeded  *|this year by such fund-raising  *|"schemes as the recent $5,000  ^raffle.   ..,;  <;*    Appropriately, the theme of  >| Minor Hockey Week is- "The  Volunteer". This term includes  all those people without whose  efforts minor hockey would  not exist.  The coaches, assistants and  referees who give so much of  their time and energy to the task  of producing potential N.H.L.  recruits; parents who yell  themselves hoarse at games,  drive aspiring hockey stars to  practice at unseemly hours of  the morning and provide expensive gear which seems to inevitably need yearly replacement; and hockey moms who  organize schedules and fund- ���  raising schemes, and generally,  mother their teams.  As you watch Hockey Night  |n Canada remember that  betiind every N.H.L. star was a  corp&of.volunteers who helped  set his skates on the slippery  path to hockey fame.  The action is fast and furious  at tlieVSechelt arena as the  Peewees, Atoms, Pups, and  Bantams battle with all the  seriousness of the big leagues.v  Why not take in a game and see  the N.H.L. players in the making? ���������; "   ,  Chinook swimming  ��    The past few meets that the  |;Chinook swim team have  ^entered in have been very encouraging and productive with  January 15-16 in Surrey being  no exception.

Howe Sound's  recreation budget  ' by James Gurney  Chairman, VVHSRC  At its regular meeting  January 10, 1983 the West  Howe Sound Recreation Com-  t'ssion adopted jts budge^for  33. Details bf the budget kre  follows:  the total funds available to  the commission are  $Ifl4,277;56, made up from  regional district grants of  $94,500 collected from electoral Areas E and F and  $19,77.56 from the town of  Gibsons. Expeditures are  budgeted as follows:  Administration Salaries 4,883  Park Maintenance  . (Brothers Park) 1,500  Parks Development  (AreasE&F) 11,249  Recreation Programmes 2,000  Postage* Stationary; 100  Travel & Car Allowance 650  Transfer to Aquatic Centre        85,896  Recreation Improvements 8,000  For parks development in  Areas E and F several projects  are being considered, such as  development of tennisxourts at  Langdale and Cedar Grove  schools, beach access improvements and development  of playgrounds in Areas E and  F:'; ���    .   ,...    . , ���  \    ���  Recreation programmes are  proposed similar to those  presented last summer such as  hiking and cycle trips, canoe  trips and other excursions.  More information will be  * available as the programmes  are developed.  Transfer to the Aquatic Centre represents a grant to offset  the operating deficit of the Gibsons pool. The amount provided represents 75 per cent of the  commissions budget, the maximum amount available by  referendum; It should be noted  that this amount does not cover  the total operating deficit of the  pool and leaves a substantial  amount to be covered by the  town of Gibsons.  Of the $8,000 provided for  recreation improvements,  $2,500 is budgeted for shower  , controls at the pool and $500  for replacing thermal blankets  at the pool, both items to save  fuel costs. A further $5,000  grant has been budgeted for  Centennial '86, a volunteer  group which is working to  develop more recreation  facilities at the Aquatic Centre  site.

There are two reasons we  have so little information coming from a very hot war in EI  Salvador. Journalists are at the  top of lists of government  "death squads" and to print  unfavourable information is to  risk death.  Secondly, the United States  government learned from Viet  Nam that the daily, deaths of  peasants makes for uncomfortable reactions, from television  viewers who may turn to pro-  On the rocks  test. So as the escalation of the  Central American war continues, the North American  public is kept ignorant of the  extent of U.S. involvement by a  very obvious information  blackout.  Americas In Transition explores the implications of the  war for both the United States  and Canada. Narrated by Ed  Asner, the film provides concise and fast paced introduction to the forces at work today  in Latin America.

Kiwanis  Auxiliary  by Rosemary Fay y  Our first meeting of 1983 was  held with 29 members attending, and^we were happy to  welcome^ifwo new members,  Helen Adams and Linda Com-���  eauf  The meeting was opened and  presided over by president Sue  Whiting, and the various committees made their reports. The  February meeting will be the  election of officers, so all  members were urged to attend.  We were very glad to be able  to thank the Kiwanis Village  resident.Mr. Norm Hooper for  his donation of refreshments to  the Christmas decorating party. Also, we received the initial  donation towards the van for  the residents of the home. The  auxiliary is considering making  this their next project, and it  will involve much time and effort to raise the necessary  funds. All were enthusiastic  about this idea, and Cathy Baxter, the head nurse, presented  the auxiliary with a plastic toy  van.  As this was the first meeting  of the New Year, the auxiliary  wishes to thank the publishers  of this newspaper for their constant support-, and also the  many merchants in Gibsons  who have been so generous in  asisting us in various ways. It  has been greatly appreciated.  All are most welcome to attend our next meeting on  February 16, 1983 at the  Kiwanis Village at 8 o'clock.  tWMT-Dll  Used Furniture  and What Have You,  Ai/8  Wf buy Beer Bottles  886-2812  Upcoming Dates:  January 27-29: High School  Zones.

Brackett told the Coast News  that anyone seeking employment on the project should  phone him at 885-9647, but  that at least 10 to 12  unemployed people have been  hired already. Brackett also  said that he would begin work  today (Monday, January 24)  and should be working full-out  by Wednesday or Thursday.  The EBAP provides funds  for people on unemployment  insurance. To the maximum  $240 unemployment benefit a  week, EBAP funds subsidize  an additional $60 a week to  those working on the project.  Funds also pay for equipment  and supplies.  Gibsons town council  celebrated its new status as'a  town council by passing the  first zoning by-law which does  not have to go to Victoria to be  ratified. By-law No. 444 will  permit the construction of the  Gibsons Landing Hotel in the  Bay area. *;>.  The next step for hotel  developers, Art McGihnis and  John McRae, is to submit  working drawings of the pro^  ject and apply for a building  permit. i;  The hotel developers hav��  applied to obtain crown  foreshore land which has accreted to their lots by tidal action. Council was concerned  about retaining control of the  sewer main which passes  through this area.  The Planning Committee at  last Monday's meeting decided  to recommend to council that  the application be approved for  an area to within five feet of the  sewer line from the shore. The  land between the sewer line and  the water would remain crown  foreshore.  Gibsons Chamber meets  The Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce will  hold its first meeting of 1983 af  8:00 p.m., Thursday, January  27th, in the Marine Roomj-  below the Gibsons Public  Library on South Fletcher. Thisj  major topic for discussion wilt  be government grant availability.  The Chamber also reports  that it will participate in the International Boat and Sportsman's Show to be held in Vancouver, February 5th to 15th.  The Chamber expects the  display to give exposure to the  Sunshine Coast to as many as  110,000 people.  $ALE - $AVE .  AT LAST, HERE IT IS!

Black mark in centre was apparently caused by a U.F.O. on the camera lens. -��eorKeM.IlheWspho1o  Dawe defends  beach  both warn against tampering  with foreshore areas.  Miss Dawe also commented  on the proposal to install a  barge in Trail Bay as a portable  wharf, "the person who proposed the barge has had a  number of plans for Trail  Bay," she said, "all equally  mad."  Experience along the Trail  Bay foreshore since 1976,  coupled with the recent experience along the Franklin  Road beach in Gibsons tend to  support Miss Dawe's contentions.  Alderman Short assured  Miss" Dawe that no action  would be taken in Trail Bay  without thorough study.  Council  raps Koch  petition  An advertisement in the  Shopper's Press, sponsored by  an individual who prefers to remain anonymous, asking for  supporters to "Stop" former  Sechelt irmydrjBud Koch.from ������:,,  resigning } was fii;miy  repudiated by Sechelt council  at last Wednesday's meeting..  Council directed village office staff to not accept any petitions from individuals who  were supporting any candidates for office.  Council denied any association with the ad. Alderman  Allen, who was not present at  the meeting told the Coast  News that as far as he was con  cerned, he would support  alderman Kolibas' candidacy  along with the other council  members because of Kolibas'  six years of experience on council."  .Long-time Sechelt resident  and local historian Helen Dawe  warned. Sechelt Council  Wednesday that if the efforts  by previous councils to use riprap barriers along the  Boulevard on Trail Bay continue, the Sechelt waterfront,  ;, once "one of the world's  premier beaches", will be irreparably ruined.  Miss Dawe, who told council  that she had played along the  beach when she was a girl,- said  that in her 68 years the only  ." significant damage that had  ! ever occurred to the beach had  : been caused by man. "Councils  . are made up of decent people,"  ; said Miss Dawe, "but they  ; don't  know a thing about  ; engineering."  Miss Dawe showed council  ; photographs of the, beach  ; dating back to the turn of the  ; century, demonstrating the  ��� natural beauty of Trail Bay  ; before man began tampering  : with the foreshore. The major  ��� damage apparently began in  ; 1976 when the then, Sechelt  'council authorized the dumping of large rocks along the  shore, ostensibly to protect the  foreshore from wave action.  ,,  The present council is studying a proposal to use more  - rocks to protect the area.  Miss Dawe pointed out that  when huge boulders are  dumped on a sloping beach, the  tide action tends to undermine  the rocks, allowing them to  "walk" down the slope into the  sea. "Council should take all  the time it needs to study this  proposal," said Miss Dawe.  .. "The people won't mind; but  don't rush into the same kind of  mistake made by other councils." She went on to cite  studies of foreshore environments by Wulf Bauer and  the Motherwell Report which  Church  Services  THE UNITED CHURCH  OF CANADA  Sunday Worship Services  ST.

There is not space'to deal with  this letter in this issue, but I intend to reveal some interesting  implications in this matter next  ���week.'   '  Tonight, Friday 21st, I had  dinner at the Village  Restaurant in Sechelt because,  while having a rich thick clam .  chowder for lunch, I noticed  that the dinner special was  advertised as Alaska Black  Cod. (Of course my readers  knbw that in reality this is B.C.  Smoked Sablefish.)  I am pleased to report that  the dinner was delicious, the  fish was properly smoked,  without using dye and poached  just right and presented on a  platter with vegetables, cole  slaw and garnish arranged in a  pleasing manner. And the price  was right.  Tuesday is January 25th,  which is the birthday of the  beloved bard of Scotland, Robbie Burns.

ARE YOUA  VOTER?  by Michael Sunl  it is important that these findings are available at this time  for Canada intends to sign an  "umbrella agreement" with  the United States wriich will  allow for the testing of the U.S.  cruise missile over Canadian  soil. In so doing, Canada will  be participating directly, and  with increasing responsibility,  in augmenting the dangers of  the arms lace.  The cruise missile is relatively small (21 feet long) and  relatively cheap to build (less  than $1 million each) but it is  extremely lethal. It carries a  nuclear warhead seven and a  half times more powerful than  the one dropped on Hiroshima  and it has a deadly accuracy of  300 feet over its maximum  range of flight. It is designed to  fly at very low altitudes, just  above treetopi and therefore  cannot be spotted by radar.  Deployment of the cruise  missile will make any attempt  at accurate arms verification  impossible since their small size  will make it easy to hide them or  move them around at will. And  accurate arms verification is  absolutely essential as a step in  limiting and reducing the existing number, of nuclear  warheads.  This is what is so dangerous  in introducing cruise missiles as  fiart of NATO's defense plans,  t is not just another bomb,  although that would be bad  enough. It's a new type of  bomb which, by its nature,  makes the risk of attack more  probable and the chance for a  real arms reduction less likely.  Isn't it true that for every  new and better weapon that is  deployed by one side, an even  more deadly one is created by  the other? Where does it all  end?

Send entries to the Coast News, Box 460, Gibsons, in time to reach the  newspaper office by Saturday of this week. This week's winner is Brock Hansen, R.R. #1; Rutherford  Road, Halfmoon Bay who located a small, temporary waterfall on Highway 101.  In Area E  Re-zoning explained  Press Release from  The Elphinstone Electors'  Association  The change from an "L" to a  "K" subdivision zone means  an increase in average lot sizes  from 1,000 square metres, or  approximately one-quarter  acre, to 1,500 square metres, or  approximately one-third acre.  This does not involve a change  in land use.  ��� *  The area affected by the present change is that portion of  Electoral Area "E" which lies  between Grandview Road and  Highway 101, excluding the  lands presently within the  Agricultural Land Reserve.  The change does not affect  presently established lots,  which may be smaller than the  new allowed size.  The reasons for making this  change are as follows:  1. To preserve as much as  practical the character and  semi-rural atmosphere of the  neighbourhood.  Larger lots will allow greater  preservation of the natural  vegetation and retain the  privacy and quiet of the area.  Development of smaller lots  necessitates the stripping of virtually all vegetation. While to a  small degree vegetation is  restored in time by landscap-  ing, the impact on the  neighbourhood is devastating.  Examples of this can be seen in  Bonniebrook Estates, Woodcreek Estates Phase II and  Rican Development's subdivision at Highway 101 and King  Road.  If this process continues, the  area will undergo a tremendous  change of character and the  aesthetic values and natural attractions for which people have  settled in, and continue to be attracted to this area, will be lost.  The "K" zone is an attempt to  prevent this. Urban sprawl can  be created in almost any area.  The Sunshine Coast offers a  natural environment with the  opportunity to develop a unique and special community,  that accommodates people and  not merely provides accommodation for people.  2. To address sewage disposal  and drainage problems.  blerris.  Larger lots, coupled with  retention of vegetation, will  substantially improve sewage  disposal and drainage problems. Ground disposal of  sewage is totally dependent on  vegetation for neutralization.  One-quarter acre lots which accommodate a larger home,  garage, driveway, or other  structures, do not allow sufficient room for vegetation to  make septic systems workable  over the long term. Runoff  from urban developed land,  because of poor ground absorption and retention, creates  serious problems such as property damage and land slip.  Evidence of these problems  already exists in Area "E". The  Technical Planning Committee, a committee made up of  representatives of all branches  of the government, recommended adoption of the "K"  zone, as it would "provide  some relief for the geotechnical  and seismological problems  becoming evident in the area:"  While these problems can be  solved in other ways, by sewage  systems and storm drains, the  costs of these measures cannot  be borne by one-quarter acre  lot residential development in  an area which is fragmented by  deep ravines and topographical  features as are found in Area  "E", ���':-.;'   --.?  3. Water supply problems will  be eased.  As this area is one of the  more expensive portions of the  Sunshine Coast to transmit  water to, reducing density will  alleviate some of thehigh costs  mvolved in water transmission;.  The Inspector    ^ of  Municipalities recently recommended to^the regional board  that it consider reducing densi1  ty in areas that were more expensive to transmit water to. *'  Arguments opposing this  density change range from loss  of property values, increased  lot prices, subdivision cost  which will make development  financially impossible, reduc^  tion of the tax base for the community. Very simply, all of  these concerns can be answered  by one single statement. That  is, the costs of remedying the  problems created by small lot  subdivisions will far exceed the  above considerations.  The Elphinstone Electors'  Association will hold a public  meeting in room 101  Elphinstone Secondary School  at 7:30 p.m. January 24th, to  provide an opportunity for  discussion and explanation of  this subdivision change.
