Labonte polled 439 votes to  Strom's 169.  In the aldermanic race, with five  candidates seeking two, two-year  terms, Coast "News managing  editor John Burnside topped the  "poll with 302 voles, while Ron  Neilson took the second seat with  243 votes. Clay Carby was runner-  up with 239; Tarry Giannakos  received 206 and Art Smylie 129.  In the aldermanic race. for the  one-year term on Gibsons council,  the" incumbent   Jack   Marshall  defeated Barry Lynn 335 to 269.  A total of 614 voters turned out  to the polls, or 49 per cent of the  1,243 eligible voters in Gibsons. *  Both Burnside and Neilson had  been particularly critical of the  method employed to hire former  Gibsons' mayor Lorraine Goddarci  as clerk-treasurer for the town arid  both.candidates have clearly stated  they would like to see the job  reposted.  Also, Burnside and Neilson have  'stated they are in favour of placing  a nuclear disarmament referendum  on the ballot in the future, a moyje  not supported by (he former council,.  The .mayor and, new aldermen  will be sworn in December 5th. '  Incidentally, successful aldej-  manic candidate Ron Neilson was  a double winner Saturday, when at  ���6:30 p.m. his wife, Gail, presented  him with a nine, pound, ten ounce  son. The new alderman's son Is  named Martin.  Devastation in Roberts Creek  Regional votes  Creeks run amok after storms  by John Burnside  \��     Two   docile   little   creeks   in  -% Roberts Creek went on the ram-  -  page during the torrential rains of  ;   last week and left behind them a  ���   trail of devastated property and  closed highways.  Qn  Tuesday  afternoon,  little-  "���,, known Clough Creek came ram-  t~X paging^ down.; the  mountainside.-.  ./��� behind grange Road in a wave'o'f  mud,  water and giant uprooted  -.,'���' trees and turned some picturesque  properties above the highway into  scenes bf total devastation. Worst  hit was the property of Sandy Barrett. Before the slide, it1 was a  meadowed property with fruit trees  and a delightful pond. Virtually all  of it is now a flood plain.  Miraculously, there was little  structural damages done to the  houses which sit well separated on  five-acre lots. Equally miraculously, no lives were lost although in  some cases in the Orange Road  area it might well have been  tragically different.  An uprooted tree actually fell on  the house of Mr. and Mrs. Leslie  Broman. Mrs. Broman was doing  her dishes when the awesome rumble was heard about 1:20 p.m. on  Tuesday and the slide carved out a  deep gully within a few feet of her  kitchen windown. Her. husband  had just been about to drive out his  driveway, but went back for his  tool box. In 'the interim, the  driveway disappeared. "I heard the  noise and everything start to get  lighter as the shade trees fell," said  Mr. Broman.  Across the way, John and Aus  Marian and their two children rent  John Johnson's house above where  the creek smashed through Orange  Road.  "The sound was like a jet taking  off. It got louder and louder till it  was a thunderous roar. There were  cracking and snapping sounds as  trees broke off. We could see the  tops of trees shaking as the water  rushed down. We rushed out into  ' the open field because we thought  it was an earthquake. Our  youngest child asked: 'Are we going to die?* The children thought it  was a nuclear attack,'' ._..  .tA'-,, Mich^iMbmbleau'-Was*working-1  on a house with Len Gould and  they ran for the highway as the terrible sound built up.  "1 thought it was the bomb,"  said Mombleau.  Tori Lepore was at home-with  her sister-in-law and their children  when she heard the sound.  "1 opened my back door and  there was a wall of mud and debris  coming right towards us. Trees  were coming down standing vertically upright. There was a stand  of big fir trees between the house  and the slide. It took half of them  out, but there were.enough of them  to deflect it past the house."  Only the dog was home at Sandy  Barrett's house below the Lepore  place and here the scene of  devastation was most "complete.  Virtually all of the property was  completely covered with mountains  of debris but, again miraculously,  the house' was spared, although  giant trees lie now within a few feet  of the house. The wall pf debris  was halted just at the junction of  the Barrett property and that of  Ken Dalgleish adjoining from  Crowe Road.  .The docile creek was jammed  high up with logging debris and the  heavy rain and the snow melt at the  higher elevations built up behind  the log-jam until the pressure finally brought logs and boulders  plunging on a path of destruction  down across the power line to the  peaceful  properties  between  the  power line and the highway.  The Clough Creek slide closed  both the .highway and the lower  road at one point on Tuesday, but  the highways crew managed, to  keep one or 'other open at most  times. Had the ram paging'debris  not been halted two properties  above the highway, the road  damage would have .been enor-  vjr--rnous. -v ���V-.  s__   r  %-.  "/v******-  It was"later in the week'Wrie'n  Malcolm Creek, about halfway  from Cheryl Anne Park Road and.''  the bridge on Lower Road, showed  its teeth. In the early hours of Friday morning the culvert below the  road was blocked and an entire section pf lower road just disappeared  leaving a-chasm thirty feet deep  and thirty feet-across.  One highways worker described  clearing lower road as being "like  the Dairy^5 Queen advertisement.  ,Ybu werje 'up to your knees in  chocolate" without the peanuts".  r\$ Many residents ,of the affected ;  yMf'ei weis^vacuaied^Qa^liyesdays^,  evening as of ficials'Teafed' more'���"  ���  slides.     _    ���  Properties in the" Lower Road  area also suffered heavy damage to  driveways, as the water roared  down across the road.  In Saturday's regional board  elections, three issues were decided  by voters in areas A, C, and E,  In area E, where incumbent  director Jim Gurney was being  challenged by Patricia Gurney, Jim.  Gurney was re-elected by a vote of  275 to 143. The disarmament question was supported in area E by a  vote of 2% to 97. Over all, nuclear  disarmament was supported in the  region by a vote of 530 to 155, or  77 per cent in favour.  In area A, the nuclear disarmament referendum, held in conjunction with the school board election,  was passed 199 to 48. t  In area C, where voters in the  Sandy HoOk-Tuwanek area wete  asked to vote on turning over  $40,000 to Coast Cable Vision f6r  the construction of cable vision  lines into the area, the issue was  supported 117 in favour to 17 opr  posed. Also in area C, 33 voted In  favour,, of nuclear disarmament,  while 10 were opposed.  MLA tours  disaster area  MLA Don Lockstead toured the  devastated properties in Roberts  Creek last Friday in the company  of . provincial emergency coordinator Art McPhee, area D  director Brett McGillivray and his  alternate Gail Comrie.  "A whole series-of people suf-  , fefed damage to-their property, in-  . eluding bridges and access roads,"  said   McGillivray,   "though  thankfully  there  was very  little  structural damage."  On Tuesday PEP co-ordinator  Art McPhee declared the area a  provincial disaster area and Ross  Mclntyre of the Vancouver office  of PEP spent Tuesday and  Wednesday gathering information.  Mike Currie of the Provincial  Water Management Branch also  toured the area and said that geo-  technical surveys would have to be  done to stabilize Malcolm and  Clough Creeks* Some provincial  money will be available to relocate  stream beds and clear off slash and  debris from affected properties as  well as to reconstruct lost access  roads., .  MLA Lockstead- urges all affected parties in all parts of the  ' Sunshine Coast and particularly in  the Roberts Creek area to report all  damage .without delay. He will be  making preliminary representations on behalf of the residents of  the area first thing Monday morning and fuller representations when  reports are in.  "It is imperative for residents to  make the fullest reports possible,  both in the Roberts Creek area and  in other areas we may7 not have  heard about yet. There is not as  much money available as .there  once was but something can be  done by way of restitution but the  reports must be submitted to the.  regional directors of affected areas  immediately so that they can be  forwarded to Victoria. I will be  working on behalf of my con-  stitutents without delay."  In Saturday's school board elections in rural area A, a surprisingly  small number of the nearly 3,000  eligible voters returned incumbent  school trustee Jamie Stephen. The  vote in area A was Stephen 370 and  opponent Dr. William Lawrenuk  117.  In rural area. B, three candidates  were running for two positions. Incumbent Don Douglas topped the  poll with 957 votes- followed closely by Patricia Muryn, with 913  votes. Newcomer Wilf Ratzburg  received 509. '��.  The turnout in area B was 2,379  of the more than 10,600 eligible  voters. The poor voter turnout^  were surprising, considering the  controversy which arose last weei$  over the teachers' walkout and t^e  public demands for an injunction!  against the. picketing. ��  (   Food Bank news  Tiie next food distribution day will be on November 30 at St.  Bartholomew's Hall in Gibsons at the corner of Highway 101. and  North Road.

"S  ^r  Marina contract signed  by Judith Wilson  The project which many  residents feel will rejuvenate down  town Gibsons, moved closer to  achievement last Friday with the  signing of the contract between the  town of Gibsons and Gibsons  Marina Hotel Inc. for construction  and operation, of the marina for  Gibsons harbour.  Council, al its regular meeting  last week, gave first, second and  third readings to "Marina By-law -  No. 476 and al a special meeting on  Thursday the by-law received final  adoption. Described by town planner Rob Buchan as "a momentous  by-law" the agreement permits  GMHl to construct "to the  satisfaction of the town" a marina  for 381 boats with launching and  other facilities and a parking lot.  The developers will pay all costs  of construction except for the  breakwater and dredging, and the  town's contribution of $240,000.  The town has also signed its contract with the federal government  whose contribution to the project  is construction pf a breakwater,  and dredging of the harbour. The  town has received a provincial lottery grant of $40Q,000 towards the  cost of the project of which  $140,000 has been given to the  federal government ,as the town's  contribution to federal 'involvement in the marina development.  The promoters, Art -.McGinnis  and John McRae, see the marina as  a necessary adjunct tb their plans  to develop a destination resort  hotel in the harbour area.  Art McGinnis. described the  marina/hotel complex as a multi-  phased development which will be  financed by the selling of partnership units at a minimum subscription of $7,500. Now that the lease  has been signed, a prospectus  outlining the venture can be filed-  with the Superintendent of Brokers  and units should'be available for  sale in two to three weeks.  McGinnis described this equity  financing as "a new way of financing developments since the high interest era began���it protects from  high debt servicing", in these dif-  m  ficult economic times he feels it will  be "uphill slogging" but is confident that financing for the  marina/hotel complex will be  finalized by the end of October  1984.. , . ,;   '...  The marina project is. phase" one  of the whole development and construction-' will begin 'as soon ^as  dredging' is completed which must  be by'the end of February in order  not to interfere with the herring  run in the harbour. The marina  should be in operation by the end  of May. 1984.  The marina/hotel development  will provide a total of 104 job years  of work, Jon McRae told the Coast  News, which breaks down into approximately 92 job openings for  the various tradesmen and other  staff. Once the "complex is completed there should be 49 full and  16 half-time jobs provided. McRae  emphasized the importance of the  "spin-off factor" in creating jobs  in the community which are indirectly related to the development.

Coast News, November 21,1983  and laope  Gibsons voters made some clear choices Saturday and if the  successful candidates hold true to public statements made  prior to the election, some major shifts in policy seem likely.  First of all, both of the new aldermen have made it plain that  the voters deserve more openness and candor from their  elected representatives.  Secondly, both of the new aldermen have clearly stated their  desire to have the job of clerk-treasurer reposted to assure  fairness in hiring. The new mayor, Larry Labonte, has himself  expressed his discomfort with the way the hiring was handled.  Thirdly, both new aldermen have made strong public commitments to making sure that a nuclear disarmament referendum is placed on the ballot in future elections.-'  ������������"> -'-  Finally, both new aldermen have indicated there is a need to  provide an adequate water and sewer services infrastructure if  orderly growth is to take place. That means an emphasis on  planning. It also means a watchful eye on the development of  the marina project.  The previous council made an eleventh hour deal which  ratified the contract with the marina/hotel developers. If election rhetoric can be counted on, the new council will be much  more cautious than the last when it comes to changing the face  of our community.  This is restraint?  Criticizing the B.C. government's so-called restraint program is dangerously like criticizing motherhood these days.  Still, we would dare to mention that it took B.C. 104 years to  build up a provincial debt of $4.1 billion through 1975. In the  last eight years under our restraint-minded Socreds it has gone  from $4.1 billion to $14 billion. You can look it up.  Nota bene  John Burnside, managing editor and co-publisher of the  Coast News has been elected alderman in the town of Gibsons.  This event gives rise to possible conflict of interest, as Mr. Burnside has been both reporter and editorial commentator on local  political issues. -.  ���  -  In order to clear up the question of conflict, Mr! Burnside  asserts that he will: 1. Remove himself from the editorial staff of  the Coast News. 2. Refrain from reporting on local political  issues. 3. Refrain from making editorial comment on local  political issues. 4. Make any comment of a political nature in the  appropriate forum, and 5. Make himself available to reporters  from both newspapers.  .from the files of the COAST NEWS  5 YEARS AGO  A dangerous situation  was averted when a driver  at, the Langdale ferry terminal discovered that the  rudder of the Queen of New  Westminster was loose.

Men came for raw resources, which they took to industrialized nations far away to be processed, Whaling, fishing, mining, and  lumbering followed the established pattern. Although this cut-  and-run trend continued, it was countered to a certain extent  toward 1900 by the establishment of businesses and industries  aimed at serving local, as well as distant populations. Some  Musings  John Burnside  Jack Webster seems to me to be  the iconoclast who became an icon.  t rarely watch Webster, but when I  have lately I have found him 'full  of sound; and fury signifying  nothing'. He's been playing "the  role of tough-talking, straight from  ���the shoulder, no-holds-barred Scot  for so long that he^can, I am sure,  do it in his sleep. It seems to me, >  however j that behind the forceful  manner and the emphatic speech  there is left only the husk of an bid  newspaperman. He's like an old  circus horse who knows all,the  tricks, but has lost its relish fo'Rthe  action.  These vague and insubstantial  impressions were strongly reinforced last Friday morning,'as I watched the. first half of the Webster, ���  show   which    featured * our.)  province's prerhier. .. ���      $y,  We weren't five minutes into'the^  show until I was muttering within- /,  dignation. There was the premier  taking comfortable,'refug^'in the  position that his was a duty elected  government that must not give way  to protests in the street; democracy  must prevail over anarchy, etc. .  Had Webster been the tough,  no-quarter interviewer that his  speech patterns seek to suggest, he  would not have let Bill Bennett slip  by in this spurious, and superficial  stance. He would surely have questioned Bennett on the assaults on  the democratic process conducted  by his government; the paving of  money to the government without  legislative approval; the mountain  of hidden legislation produced  after the election was safely out of  the way, which seemed designed to  radically alter the structure of  society permanently; the unprecedented use of closure to stifle  the parliamentary opposition.  There is a body of opinion that  has nothing to do with political  parties, included in which I count  myself, which fears for the  democratic process itself in these,  ���^r**  troubled tirhes. Before the last election, I said to a young man from  Sechelt with whom I've had a  jocular political combatancy since  I taught him several years ago in  Grade Eleven, that the left-wing,  right-wing political debate that we  had been enjoying for years was  become passe. The issue now, I  felt, was between those who  favoured the retention of  democracy and those who sought  to mute'the voice of the people.  If I may say so, I am a passionate democrat. I believe that the  system of government which allows  us to change our leaders periodically without shooting anybody  deserves our most committed loyalty. When I see politicians treating it  with disdain or bringing it by their  actions into disrepute I am angered  and'disturbed.l" iSi'- ���1'":'i   >/;-v  And.whenT saw the self-styled'  fearless  iconoclast  who  is  Jack  Webster allowing the perpetrator  of the assault on democracy which '  is taking place in this province  assume   unchallenged   the   high  ground of democracy I was distressed indeed, but not surprised,  ed. ; .  Nor do I think that Bennett's advisors were surprised. Would they  have allowed the premier to appear  on   the   Webster   show   if  they  thought there was any danger of  him being embarrassed? It is, after  all, highly irregular for the premier ���  of a   province  to  make  major  statements of position sandwiched  between   television   commercials.  The brains trust imported from  Ontario had, I am sure, discerned  that old Jack's bark might be still.  impressive, but his bite had gone to.  gums. ';''���' ������"���������..,: r  It is time for the once abrasive '  Webster to retire to his farm on  Saltspring Island and play the role  of gentleman farmer once and for  ever. He is trading on his name  - after he has nothing to say of any  merit or significance. X  lyiaryanne's Viewpoint  Civil disobedience  by Maryanne West  Napoleon is reported to have  said, "If I had to choose between  /law and\ order and. justice,  I'd  choose law and order."  From the point of view of the  military commander, I. suppose  there wasn't much difficulty in his  mind as to which course to take.  For most of us, however, issues  are rarely in such black������.���and'white ?  terms, however much we jnight ���  yearn  for such simple- decision-/  making. Recent events in British  Columbia have forced us to do  much   hard  thinking  and  soul-  searching.  I don't believe that in Canada  anyone decides easily on a path of  civil disobedience; it goes against  our traditions and upbringing. It  is, hpwever, a time-honoured process, though not one to be taken  until all other legal avenues of protest have been,exhausted.     ���  It has found teachers and school  trustees, among others, with some  very difficult questions to answer. :  A teacher's first loyalty is to the  children, but all must ask  thefnselyes, if /I ; stay in my���  classroom do I negate the protest  of those who believe the basic issue  is of a government which has  money to spare for a private box at  B.C. Place, ministerial travel,  public   relations,   etc.,   but   for  whom educational needs are a low  priority? vIf we can change' the  government's priorities, won't that  be of greater value to the students  in the long run than a few days of  lost classroom time?  Trustees, in whose lap the decision to. decide, the question was:  "dumped,_ found .themselves on the.  horns of the same dilemma. Also/  dedicated to uphold both the law  of the land and the standards of  education, should they invoke the  law .on the teachers with whose  : cause they agreed, or should they  resign as a body and join the picket  line? Would the latter course get  education; anywhere or would it  perhaps jeopardise local control  and the democratic system?  Parents, too, have had' to ask  themselves   similar   questions.  Could they ask the school board to  re-open the schools if they hadn't  objected' to  the closure of the  schools last year? Was it right for  the government to lop off five days.  of the school year last year in order  to ��� balance the budget and wrong  for the teachers this year?  'Inevitably we haven't all been pf,  priefmind, - but soul-searching is ;���'.  always ;a worthwhile. activity. ' It  shouldvi'lead   to   tolerance; and; X  respect for those who have reached V  a different answer, whether it be to V  cross picket lines or to stand for  hours in the rain.  families camti determined to stay.

Peterson  Awareness of students  Facing the  by Judith Wilson  Last week an Elphie student had  the middle finger of his left hand  ripped off in a machine in the  school shop. As the news spread,  the whole school reacted with horrified sympathy.  A half hour before, an avalanche of mud, boulders and trees had  swept down the hill above Roberts  Creek, cutting a swath through  Orange Road, devastating proper  ties, but miraculously injuring no-  "'" one. ���  During the previous week,  students had watched their teachers  walk the picket line and had heard  stories Of threatened violence by  angry parents i  '''���' X ���"������ "V:f  That same week a dog had been  attacked with a chairisaw near the  school after it had bitten a passerby.  Little wonder that classes last  Week were unusually subdued, as  students digested and discussed  events which had touched people  they knew.  But perhaps the most  devastating of all the events of the  past weeks will have come last Sun-  day night with the showing of a  film so graphic that schools in Vancouver and across the States have  sent letters home to parents warn-  , ; ing them to carefully monitor their  children's viewing of it.  .���'The Day After", a fictional account of the aftermath of nuclear  war, has been described by Sun  television critic Nicholas Read as  "the most visually horrific,  politically explosive and  courageously graphic film ever  made for television''.  We have a generation of young  people brought up with TV and  film. They seem to take in their  stride horrific scenes of blood and  gore in.sensational horror movies.  We.worry that for them the real  horrors of war, of French and U.S.  troops  massacred  in  Beirut,  of  dead  civilians  in  the streets of".

As the attitude  which such misinformation fosters  could lead to lingering hostility  , toward teachers, I feel these errors  must be addressed: .  "    ���  1. The brief protests "The illegal  disruption of the educational programme..."  The teachers' withdrawal of services has not been shown to be illegal. Three provincial court decisions favoured the teachers and the  injunctions were refused. This is in  keeping.with a unanimous decision  by the Ontario Supreme Court.  2. ".. .we cannot condone abandonment of the democratic pro-  I Well, neither can I'. But just who  abandoned it? It was the govern-  : ment which introduced a radical  legislative programme for which it  had no mandate. Prior to the last  election, the Socreds said nothing  about abolishing the Human  Rights Branch and Commission,'  the Rentalsman, the Community  Involvement Programme, and a  host of other programmes, nor did  they say there would be. further  cuts in education spending.  The government'repeatedly used  closure to deny the official opposition its mandate and democratic:  right to oppose the govenment's  legislation.  It was the 'neutral' Acting  Speaker of the House, Socred  MLA John Parks, who donated  the boot he had used to "kick the  Leader of the Opposition out of  the House," tb the Socreds so that  they could auction it off to raise  funds at their convention. Another  'neutral' Speaker, MLA Walter  Davidson, decided to suspend the  leader of the Oppositions for the  rest of the session.

It was the government, contrary  to normal practise in a parliamentary democracy, which refused to  consult with those affected by its  proposed lepslation, until forced  to by the Solidarity movement.

'Editor, . ���;  With reference to your news article (Teachers action takes effect  -Coast News, November ^14), I  wish to state, on behalf of the  staff, that at no time were any  members of . the West Sechelt  school staff either physically or  verbally abused or threatened.  On Tuesday, I opened the school  at the regular time. Between 10 and  15 students arrived at the: school  and left..to,go hpme.. At 10 a.m.. I  had a small group of students, but  by 10:15 p.m. there were some 37  children in attendance. 1 contacted  the school board office and received permission to close the school,  until further instruction.  On Wednesday, I met with  parents outside the school and explained tp them that due to the  withdrawal of services by the  teachers, instruction could not and  would not be offered that day. The  group of parents who came to the  school that morning are  reasonable, rational people and  there was no hint that they were  there for any other reasons than to  show their concern for the education of their children, as j believe  the staff and I were attempting to  do���albeit in a different manner.  Late Wednesday afternoon, information (which has since been  dispelled as rumour) was circulating concerning a proposeu  mass picketing by parents at the  school, set for Thursday morning.  It was impossible to get confirmation of this happening and so I met  with Brian Butcher (SCTA president) and John Denley (district  It is the only system the manufac--  turere   has   been   able  to   sell.  Nobody else can afford it!!!  No cuts were madeto senior civil  servants' salaries. On the contrary,  many of them received bonuses.  (Question: Who; hired, all the  BCGEU members which the  government now finds redundant?)  Whether it can afford more than  "bare bones" education and social  service budgets depends on where  the government places its priorities, .  and anyway, money saved by cutting back these budgets is infinitesimal compared to the billions  spent on mega projects.  4. "They (teachers) have no  more right to make education  policy than a soldier has to make  foreign policy."  If a'group.of engineers engaged  in building bridges discovers that  cost cuts have, in their opinion,  rendered the bridges structurally  weak, but their, employer won't  listen, what should they do? Keep  going and hope they get a more  reasonable employer in three years  time?  5. "There certainly are flaws in  their (government's) public relations effort."  Kind of makes * you think,  doesn't it, when they can't even sell  their programme with $26 million  of our money to do the job. -  6. ''We resent them showing our  children that it is alright to break  the law if you don't agree with that  law.'? ;'7.;:(,--r.. .���  As previously stated, it is far  from clear that teachers broke the  law, but that is not the poinf Contrary to the briers assertion, the  breaking of a law because of pro- -  ��� found disagreement with that law,  or civil disobedience, is considered  a legitimate, even heroic form of  protest. Think about what civil  corrects  superintendent). Brian recom-;  mended that the teacher pickets  scheduled .for Thursday morning  be withdrawn and that he and  Roger - Douglas (West Sechelt  picket captain) meet with parents  to explain the teachers' viewpoint.  There were no demonstrations  on Thursday morning.  Thursday evening a concerned  group of parents attended the  school board meeting to state their  views. This has been reported in  another story written by the same  reporter. I was in attendance at this  meeting and talked with a number  of the parents who were, likewise .  incensed at the rumours about  their possible involvement in a  demonstration which never was  planned.  At this point in time, no one  knows who started the rumour,  who helped to spread it, or. who  reported that violence occurred or  was threatened on the picket line.  It must be made perfectly clear  to your readers, many of whom are  West Sechelt staff, parents and  students, that we enjoy the support  of the vast majority of our public  when it comes to the education of  the children and that our individual  or group differences; of political  opinion during the past week  would not have led to the type of  actions hinted at in the news story.

E.R. Mulcaster  Unions said to have  outlived usefulness  Editor,  0 Unions   have   outlived - their  usefulness.,  When they start doing the things  they are doing in. the name of  'democracy and freedom', it is  time for a change.  ; How come, if^he issue is supposed to be 'human rights', the only workers directly involved in  work stoppages are those who-  could lose their jobs once it is  discovered that we can get by  without them? r  ,'*f It is ah affront"to the people of  this province that this misnamed  'solidarity' outfit seems to ignore  the fact that we, the citizens, are  the government. We'are the ones  financing this whole show-.  Through our voluntary payment of  sales tax, land tax, logging tax, gas  tax and income tax (to name only a  few of the more obvious ways) we  pay their wages.  'Setting   aside   any   discussion  about whether or not'government  employees (yes, let's include school  teachers too), were worth what we,  as taxpayers, were paying them,  the fact still remains that we could  not have kept paying them more  and more. If they all had not so  considerately ceased from working  we would have been asked to shell  out more for them. Not because  they are asking for a raise' but  because of last year's-forest industry strike there ��� was such a  decline in revenue that our government is broke. When the government cis broke the taxpayers;��� pay-  more.���' ".' X.; ' ���";';,,���  Therefore, some workers must  go. It is the only way. It is my  democratic right to lay some of  these people off. The unions  should allow me my democratic  right.  Unions have outlived their  usefulness. That is my opinion.  Thank you.  ���   Lee Nunn  enforcer. He chose to leave the X  wharf.  I would like to point out here  that my friend was not the only  boat moored at the wharf that day  with an operating woodstove, yet  he was the only boat told to extinguish his stove. I would also like,  to say that in my opinion, if the  wharfinger or town council truly  had decided that a woodstove was  an "open fire" and therefore unsafe, would it not have been more  reasonable of them to> serve the  public with notice of this change  /rather than'giving one;-individual ���;  24^hours in which to change his  heating system?; "    K  What would my friend's choice  have ��� been if, for instance, his  engine was. broken down?

Finally^ it seems that the ground  work for our proposed golf course  is more solid and we're ready for  an informational meeting.

Imagine if and; when this golf  course happens, what a positive  impact it will have on our area's  economy and yet it will not detract  from its natural beauty. This is certainly more than can be said for the  Cheekeye-Dunsmuir line. See you  next Monday night, 7:30p.m.\  LIVE-IN HELP NEEDED  I was phoned last week by a *  woman who is trying to help a  , friend of hers but. It seems that a  local woman needs a live-in companion so that she may come home  agaih to Madeira Park after having  a stroke. No work is involved and  . the. terms are easy. She just wants  to be in her own home and not in a  facility just yet. If you can help or  have any ideas, phone Sandy at'  885-7236.-  COMING HOME '  Speaking of wanting to come  home,.! imagine that's how Tiffy  and. Marion Wray must be feeling  by rioyy*.

MOST GENEROUS EVER  Bob Keene from the legion  phoned to say that in all the years  he's, been here, this was. the most  generous year ever. The legion only  administers the Poppy Fund,:  which is in fact set up as a public  trust. Funds must be used for the  -general* medical use of the public.  The Poppy Fund is one reason why  the clinic has two wheelchairs for  our local"needs.; It is a good deed  that they perform, but it's "a good  N reason to remember why we don't  want another war..  FISHERMEN'S HOMECOMING  Remember the^ Fishermen's  Homecoming on Saturday,  November 26.

DOLLAR A BAG DAYS  It's dollar a bag days at the  Bargain Barn, Thursday,  November 24 and Saturday,  November 26. There's a surplus of  ladies slacks. (Make: them into  kids' stuff, quilts, rugs, etc.) In  fact, why don't the high school  home economics classes learn  clothing renovations on ail this  nigh onto free material. Then sell  them (say toddlers clothes) through  the clinic, or at bazaars.  Polyesters that I would hate to  wear are a boon to mothers with  crawlers who can wear out cotton  knees in a matter of weeks. The  Bargain Barn is also looking for  wine bottles, a chest of drawers,  and of course, household goods  are always in demand. When you  help the Bargain Barn, you're helping out the clinic.

Barty helped move road  barricades during recent floods. -rnn **��photo  Literacy program  Long-time Coast resident John  Doe (not his real name) was laid  off recently after working'10 years  in a skill-demanding trade. It was a  good job and he made enough  money to keep his family comfortable.  ,On the surface, Doe appears well  educated. He talks a blue streak  and'.formulates his ideas clearly.  He completed grade 11 before going to work and has lots of practical experience.  But Doe is almost illiterate. He  recognizes simple signs and directions but cafl*t read the daily  paper. He barely spells and never  writes anything���letters, notes, instructions.  ' For years Doe has hidden his difficulties and he's defensive about  discussing them. He wants to re-*  main anonymous but now he's in a  bind. His unemployment insurance  has run out. To get off welfare he  must' find as,new^job in another  trade. That means training courses  and he can't meet the minimum  reacting requirements.  ' - Doe is not an isolated case, according l to Ministry of Human  Resources employment counsellor  Judy Gates. "I frequently have  clients whose basic literacy vs not  sufficient to allow them to attend  upgrading courses," she says.  "Clients who compensated for  their illiteracy for many years in an  active job market, now find  themselves .unemployed and not  retrainable."  .���'-To; meet this need, Continuing  Education is reviving a basic  literacy program for Sunshine  Coast adults who want to improve  their reading-writing skills. Begun  in 1979 by a local teacher, the first  network of volunteer tutors proved  effective , enough to warrant  another effort."  Funded'by a special Ministry of  Education grant, the new program  is called ABLE (Adult Basic  Literacy Education). "Our slogan  is 'Label us Able'," says program  co-ordinator   Jim   McDowell.  "Those who need assistance are  not stupid but society may have  made them feel that way. We want  to match them with the volunteer  tutors who are able to show  r learners that if they know a little,  they can learn a lot more."  ABLE is aimed at those who, ���  like Mr. Doe, possess some literacy  skills but not enough to attend  / .standard upgrading courses.  t "These people have been unable to  gain-the necessary skills for different reasons," explains  McDowell. "As children they  might have lived in isolated places,  missed a lot of school due to illness, or moved frequently. Some  didn't finish school and a few are  learning English as a second  language."  No one knows how many illiterate people live here but  McDowell, claims 1981 census  ���statistics show the need is there.  ���; ."When J1 per cent (1,320 persons)  of the total adult population on the  Coast has less than nfrieX. years of '  schooling, a lot of them may want  to upgrade their literacy skills,"  says McDowell.  Continuing Education set up the  program due to numerous requests  for assistance. "We want to reach  those who may not be able to read  about our tutoring network,"  noted McDowell. "We hope they  will hear about it from friends."  He expects to recruit about 25  tutors through the local Volunteer  Action Centre and train them in  early January. A volunteer coordinator will give the tutors ongoing support. ���  "We still need tutors," says  McDowell. "The only pay is in  satisfaction but a volunteer network could provide a lasting service:"  Those interested ih tutoring^can  call 885-5881 (Volunteer Action  Centre). Adults (age 16 or older),  who read or write poorly but want  to improve, can request an ABLE  tutor'by calling 885-3512 (Continu-  jng Education):  Kiwanis Auxiliary  by Rosemary Fay  Twenty members of the Ladies  Auxiliary   to   the   Kiwanis   Care  Home  were  present,  plus  Hans  v Grossman, at the meeting held at  '���������: the Kiwanis Village on Wednesday,  November 16, 1983.

Several people at last,  week's Community Association  meeting complained, however,:  about the lack of organization and  co-ordination in dealing with the  emergency. '  Regional director Brett  McGillivray commended his alter-  natej.'Gaii'Cromie, for taking over  so capably while he was in Van- .-  couver. She and Pat Murphy, head  of the local PEP group were at the  regional board offices Tuesday  night; manning, the phones and  organizing alternate food and  shelter for evacuees.  However, few people knew this-  (and at one point wouldn't have  been able to phone the Sechelt 885  exchange from the affected area  anyway) and being in an area  where cablevision is unavailable,  were phoning the emergency-  numbers for the fire department  and the RCMP for information.  Needless to say, Roberts Creek  School's one phone line was tied  up and anxious parents couldn't  get through.  It was agreed that communica-i  tion is vital in such situations-and a  better means of disseminating information to people is in order. It'  was decided to form a Community  Committee to study. the hazards'  and formulate a disaster plan  VARIETY SATURDAY  Get your tickets now'- for the  Halfmoon Hams' Variety Show at  the, Roberts ; Creek Community  Hall this Saturday night.

Pi  serve  All over the province, elections were held to choose  which of those who volunteered to serve their community  would be sworn in to office. It is ah interesting experience, ,  and one which requires a great, deal of time and thought to  bring about decisions that are forithe best of the community. It requires a good degree of co-operation at the council  table.;.- '-X-  Running your local government,'when taxes and user fees  are not easy for the citizens to pay, becomes largely a mat- ;  ter of correctly sorting out the various needs arid setting  priorities. '.'\.. ' '������ .'���  A good balance of government, I believe, is where you   ;  have continuity between what has been, and how we got  there, represented [>y those whose service is  continuing,���and sorrie fresh ideas and energy represented  by the newly elected; :;  We have that now, and I look forward to the work of  council in the year ahead. I've heard it said many times,  especially by those with experience in serving, that it is a  thankless task,���and certainly one has to give up a great  deal of private time, but it has its satisfaction, too.  To my mind, the two most difficult things to conclude,  and which are at the point of being concluded, are the long-  sought after maTrina facility and the first leg of the bluff  sewer system.  Both have taken up a great deal of time,-having been dif-  ficult.to solve, but finally a way has been found that is more  economical, more satisfactory, than any previous ideas.  the wisdom to obtain and gradually build up the very attractive "government'' centre. It is beautifulin its park location, housing the rnunicipal offices and. new council  chambers, the Ambulance Centre, the new School Board and  Health Care Centre, the renovated and new library building,  the Marine Room where public meetings are held, the Motor  Vehicle Branch office and museum, and lastly, the new fire  hall under construction on North Road.  A lot of good ideas and good execution come to us by  way of a good staff. lam proud of our staff,���all ranks, who  have been co-operative and have shown initiative.  If we have made mistakes as individuals or collectively,  let us not dwell on the negative. For who can detect and add  up the sum total of all the savings that have-been made and  the constructive progress that has occurred.  Let us tharik those who have served to the best of their  ability, and wish well those who are about to enter the service of their electorate, wherever that may be.  to --tr?'W"^-r-'r'  v4V*v^*-*'* -**>'  10.

It is certainly  a   towering , accomplishment /of';  enorinous power." --//:/, 'X  The Wild Bunch contains no actual historical figures but it is in--  finitely more impressive than many  a second-rate frontier.7epic; that  does. The theme (an increasingly-  popular one in latter day westerns)^  deals with a gang of outlaws who  have outlived their era. It is. 1912.  The gang, led by William Holden  and comprising ..such doughty  veterans as Ernest Borgnine/Edr  mond O'Brien and Warren Oates,  is being pursued by a posse, headed  by a relentless railroad boss (Albert  Dekker) and a former "gang"  member (Robert Ryan). The latter  has been parolled from prison into '  Dekker's custody on the stipula,-  tion that he help traqk down his  one-time comrades. The- chase,  enlivened by a couple of skirmishes  and a.train.robbery, leads across  the Mexican border, where the  Wild Bunch hire their services to a  bandit chief in return for protection. It is ah uneasy alliance. One  of their members; a Mexican, runs  afoul of the bandit chief who has  him tortured. At first Holden and  the others do nothing. The posse is  lurking on the outskirts of the  village. They are torn between,  loyalty to their friend and; the  desire to survive. Loyalty wins out  and they go down in a violent,  bloody battle against impossible  odds.  The film has been criticized" for  this violence which is, to say the"  least, pretty graphic. But, unlike  the violence in the spaghetti  westerns, it evolves logically from  the realistic nature of the picture  and is. not gratuitous. The  characters, to a man, are three-  dimensional  and  sharply etched;  the'grim story, a parable of the dying West, is wholly believeable.  The Wild Bunch is a film of great  dramatic force���a true classic.  The seventies would see the  western slide even further into  public disfavour and decline. There  have -been many reasons offered  for this: overexposure .of the form  oh television; the onslaught of worthless spaghetti westerns and even a  loss of the old-fashioned value  systems on which the finest examples of the idiom were essentially based. It was probably a combination of all these things. But as  much as anything else, it was the  passing or retirement of the old  masters who had raised the form to  greatness.  John Ford diedin 1973. Over his  long career, the hard-drinking  Irishman produced and directed  some of the genre's greatest  classics. But his careei peaked with  The Searchers in 1956. He made a  number of western films after this  one but none of them approached  its calibre. His final film in the  idiom was Cheyenne Autumn in  1964. It was an ambitious production, dealing with the forcible eviction of'the Cheyenne tribes from  their traditional hunting grounds. '  But it was flawed on many counts  and cannot be remembered as a  good picutre. Ford made no films  .of any description in his final  years.  Following his moment of  triumph in True Grit, Ford's early  protege and long-time .friend,  Duke Wayne, made several disappointing pictures such as Rio Lobo  and Chisum. In 1972, he reaffirmed his mythic stature in The,  Cowboys. This gripping film cast  him as an old rancher whose hands  desert him on the eve of a cattle  drive. Wayne hires a group of ���  schoolboys and trains them as  drovers. When he is shot in the  back by a sadistic outlaw (menacingly played by Bruce Dern), the  boys avenge him and complete the  drive. It is another film of near-  classic calibre that deserves much  more attention than it got.

Perhaps- encouraged by  the success of the Festival of the  Written Arts, this remarkable  group has once again put the  spotlight on the Sunshine Coast.  "Sparks from the Forge" is the  outcome of a contest sponsored by  the Forge. It was adjudicated by  Jan deBruyn, founding editor of  "Prism International", co-author  of "The Canadian Writers' Handbook" and recently retired professor of English at the University  of British Columbia, and is a  sampling of the work of our  friends and neighbours, amateur  and professional.  Since book production is a costly  venture, the Forge members, with  the co-operation of Glassford  Press, were responsible for the  various aspects of writing, editing,  proof-reading, paste-up and  layout. The result is an attractively  priced, locally produced collector's  item and the ideal gift for family  and friends at home and abroad.

The day after their arrival they were helping to clean  up after the Roberts Creek mudslide. -vene pamdi photo  Coast Gardener  Adding colour  by Dianne Evans  At this time of year, there is not  much colour in the garden, and the  ;house may be drab also, if you're  used to having cut flowers  throughout the Summer and Fall.  ' Last year I suggested growing small  varieties of marigolds ih the house;  the brightly coloured blossoms will  cheer up any winter's day and they  .are-easy to cultivate. The most  suitable are the French or the  French-African hybrids; the rate of  germination is high, and they require only about four hours of sunshine a day in order to produce  blooms.  . By now your paperwhite narcissus should be growing, ready to  flower sometime around  Christmas. You could plant some  now, but these will naturally bloom  later. I collect pretty, quite shallow "  -bowls'"at rummage sales and the .  thrift store throughout the year;  this year I found an old glass lampshade which I have inverted and  hung in my window for use as a  paperwhite container. Simply place  pebbles or even sand in the bottom  of the bowl, place in the bulbs and  steady them with pebbles or sand.  Fill'with water to halfway up the  bulbs and place in a window.  This year, I have also planted  freesias. These beautiful flowers  have a strong exotic perfume, one  that will fill your house with a springtime, smell as long as -the  blossoms last. Place your bulbs in  four or five-inch pots, or use a  special wide, shallow variety of  bulb pot. Use leaf-mould and sandy loam, ( I have been using earthworm castings with some success), arid .plant the bulbs about  two inches deep. Place the containers in a cool window and hold  the water until the First growth appears. Then transfer to a warmer  .window with as much light as  possible, water as you do for most-  houseplants, i.e. not too much,  and they will produce their lovely .  flowers by late December or early  January.  You may plant successively to  have flowers throughout the entire .  winter. After they bloom, cease  watering and allow the foliage to  die down. When it is thoroughly  dead, carefully dig up the bulbs  and dry out, ready for planting  next year. Freesias may be planted  outside, but I have found them to  do best in a more temperate environment. In any case, do not  plant" the bulbs outside until the  Spring.  ��� Another attractive indoor flower  is the oxalis. These tiny bulbs produce pink, yellow, white or  lavender flowers, and the bulbs  may be saved from year to year. .  Plant six or seven bulbs in a six-  inch pot; you'll see a crop of  foliage   within   two   weeks   and  flowers should appear within  another two or three weeks. The  blossoms last for up to a month,  then start to die away. The foliage  will then begin to yellow and, as  with other bulbs, allow it to die  away totally before digging the  -bulbs and allowing them to dry.  I have a wax begonia that is now  entering, its third, year as a house  plant. It produces tiny pink Flowers  and attractive, .very shiny leaves  most of the time, and provides me  with endless cuttings for bedding  plants for use outside in the summer months.-, These are unlike the  tuberous begonia which must be  dug up each year, as I mentioned in  a previous column. Other plants to  provide colour at this time of year  are the various pepper plants.  - I have a cayenne plant which 1  had in a pot in the greenhouse during the Summer and Fall. It is now  inside and even though some of the  leaves are beginning to yellow, it  has a second crop of long shiny  green peppers which are now turning red.  With a little thought and planning ahead, you can cheer up your  house all year round, either with  cut flowers or.with various flowering plants and bulbs. It is one way  of trying to beat the grey-day will-  it-ever-stop-raining blues.  Don't forget the pickle, relish,  chutney and jam contest at the  Roberts Creek Community Hall on  December 4th. I!m looking forward to some delicious taste treats,.  so don't let me down:  Arts council  news briefs  Films on Van Eyck, historic  mansions of Belgium and. the  Brussels Museum of Musical Instruments will be shown at the  Hunter Gallery, Gibsons, on Monday, November 21st, starting at  7:30 p.m. There is no admission  fee, but donations are welcomed.  Continuing untiLNovember 27th  (and possibly longer), at the Arts  Centre, Sechelt, is the Enid Goodman exhibition. Inspired by many  aspects of nature; the sea, rocks,  birds, Fish, plants, even a swallow's  nest; the artist ranges in style from  the realism of a naturalist to'the  airiness of impressionistic  seascapes done from memory;  from expressionistic lithographs of'  Fish to stylized watercolours of  waves.  .

Knowles  Coast News, November21,1983  ti.  by Ray Skelly, MP  Stanley Knowles has spent 37 of  the last 41 years representing the  people "of Winnipeg North Centre  in parliament. During that time he  earned, the title "conscience of  parliament".  "He is said to have the  remarkable distinction of being the  only man. in the Commons today  without a political enemy.''  That observation on the stature  of Stanley Knowles by a Toronto  columnist goes some way towards  illustrating the, respect he holds  among his peers in Ottawa. It also  hints at the amount he will be missed when he-retires from federal  politics at the end of this session of  parliament.     p:  Almost from the beginning of  his tenure in trie House, Mr.,  Knowles'became known for his  defence of pensioners and  veterans; As one of his many admirers pointed out at the Winnipeg  press conference.held to announce  his imminent -retirement- from  politics, Stanley started his fight-  for the elderly ������ when government  pensions were $20 per month starting at trie age of 70. It is not stretching the truth to say that Stanley  Knowles has played a major part iri  each and every improvement tp -  that situation over the last 40 years.'  As   much   as   his   accomplishments for .the elderly and his  mastery of parliamentary procedure, the integrity, stamina and  drive of the man have elevated him  above the rest. It is that self-  discipline which prompted the man  to quietly turn, down repeated offers of the position of the Speaker  of the House, to join the Senate, to  run for leadership of his party arid ���  his refusal to use the stuffy titles  that membership-in ' the Privy  Council afford to him.-  On a personal level, his continuing battle against multiple sclerosis  and his amazing recovery from a  stroke which doctors said could  leave him bed-ridden for the rest of  his days,'have shown us all that  same gritty determination.  Whatever Stanley Knowles  chooses to do in the future, his  morality and work ethics will stand  as an example to all members of  parliament 'and the people of  Canada for a long time to come.

VON 1VO  GRC comes up short  The Gibsons Rugby Club, coming off its decisive loss to  Meralomas last week, put together  a good team effort but came up  short against UBiC Totems Saturday at UBC. '" xx ���  Gibsons played a more typical  hard-hitting game Saturday*:''but  lost 13-10 to a very fit UBC side.  The GRC opened scoring in the  first half with winger'Jim Atten-  borough scoring an unconverted  try from a pass from forward  Jamie Gill.  UBC scored just before the half  arid converted a try for a 6-4 lead.  In the second half, Jim Atten-.  borough scored, a second try to  'move, the-score,to 10-6. UBC tied  the game at 10-10 and managed to  kick  a penalty in the last" two  minutes to come out with a narrow  13-10 victory.  The hitting was typically Gibsons tough, with the referee suggesting less physical aggression  throughout the game.     .  Next week the GRC travels to  Tswassen for what ought to prove  to be a yeryhard-hitting match.'

On November 27, lVSi, trie newly installed stained glass window of  St. John's United Church in Davis  Bay is tp be dedicated to the Glory  of God.; On Thanksgiving Sunday,  the congregation enjoyed this addition to its new church for thefirst  time and each week since .then,  many members ��� and friends have.  spoken of the beauty and artistry  pf the window..  / When this sanctuary was opened  onEaster Sunday, April 3, 1983*$  was under some! handicaps: for  carpeting had7 not arrived, *new.  chairs were not in place and the ac-  cordiah doors had been delayed in.  shipment ..In spite of everything  still to be accomplished, planning  for the, window had been under  consideration for some time. As  the architects worked on theplans  for the; building, the minister's  wife, Molly Whitelaw Reidi an ar-r  tist of some renown, had offered to  design the window in the chancel;  Mr. Ernest Wood, a -longtime :;  member of the church, had agreed  to undertake the specialized task of  fabrication and installation. These  two artistic and talented volunteers  spent many hours conceiving and  planning this project, finding the  appropriate glass, approving the  final design and pattern, and  devoting weeks of hard, intensive  work to its final completion.  In order that the theme and symbolism of this window might be.  understood, Molly Reid was asked  to dratt a summary of her thinking  and research which led to the  fulfillment of a ��� design whose  theme depicted the "message of the  Christian church through the use  of local and topical images.  History reveals that persecution  was a fact of life from the earliest  days of the church and in order to  survive it was necessary for  members to be identified by secret  signs. When these Christians began  to build Houses of Worship, symbols were, designed to���; distinguish  the Master arid the Saints. Christ  came to be symbolized with' a nimbus from which rays emanated  while Saint John was shown by an  eagle.  This was the clue Molly Reid had  been seeking as she attempted to  develop an appropriate design for  St; John's stained glass window���the very symbol of Saint  John, the. Evangelist. She recalled  that in early heraldry the symbol of  the rising eagle was assigned to this  Saint because it was said his gaze  pierced further into the mysteries  of heaven than that of man. Since  eagles are a common sight on  British Columbia's coast and  because the Sechelt Indians use the  eagle as a symbol, then Saint  John's symbol of the eagle rising  with a golden nimbus, on a field of  blue, was a logical and happy  choice for the center of a design  filled with local significance.

Says MP Ray Skelly
jf-uropeon payors   i\}\
The Fraser Institute, a right-
wing think-tank with- influence (in
the Social Credit and Conservative
parties, has been givenjthe status of
a charitable organization 7 by,:
Revenue Canada, Ray Skelly, New
Democrat: MP for Comox-Powell
River revealed last week.:
He said the institute which has
been credited with much of the,
regressive policy of B.Cs Social^
Credit government, is allowed to.
offer its donors a tax deductions
although   it   is   clearly   nor i a
charitable organization.
"There is nothing . charitable
about the philosophy of the Fraser
Insitute whose spokepersons
regularly recommend policy which
oppresses the people of British Columbia," Skelly said.,     ,
He; said legitimate charitable
organizations must justify their
purpose and their operations to
Revenue Canada before they are
given the status of a charitable
organization for income tax purposes.   '.- .'-I   •;/ ; X';-\:".'/,  ;:--';
"I. cannot understand how an
organization, whose fundamental
purpose is political propaganda
and. the influencing of government
decisions,- can qualify as a
charity," Skelly said.
He.noted the influence of the
Fraser Institute has been linked to
recent legislation of the Social
Credit government, including the-
abolition of the human rights commission, cuts to social services for
children and the disabled and the
arbitrary. firing of public
employees.
"Does the government of the
United States give~ Milton Friedman, a fellow traveller of the
Fraser Institute, the status of a
charitable organization to help him
influence the government of
Chile?" Skelly asked.
Marina contract
For Ihe second time in the past few months, the service station
business at Field Road and Highway 101 in Wilson Creek was

Power line accidents
can prove
Accidents involving overhead
power lines in B.C. have killed six
people and injured 12 this year.
These are the grim statistics
which B.C. Hydro says can be
reduced or eliminated if people use
more caution around power lines.
"AH these accidents could have
been prevented if more care had,:"
; been taken," says Erich Hensch,"
district manager.
Hydro suggests that people doing homerepair work stay clear of
electrical service connections and
take extreme care if they must
work in their vicinity. .
Tree falters and trimmers should
be aware of the potential hazard of
nearby power lines and should call
Hydro immediately: if a tree. or
branch falls onto a line. Under no
circumstances should the'Taller, try
to solve the. problem himself.
Operators of construction equipment working near powei* lines
should consult Workers' Compen-
sation Board regulations on
minimum clearance distances (re-*
quired. If clearance cannot be
maintained because of work circumstances, "XX_
"Anyone working rieara power
line should phone Hydro if-'there is
any doubt about .safety," says
Hensch. "One call could save a
life."      ■)yxX'yX'xXX:'Xxx:y-.X,:,:

the project will be locals or "people who will become local", said
McGinnis. "I'm a Coast resident; I
want to see the Coast benefit." He
said the town will benefit in many
ways from employment created,,
revenue.and future development.
Concerns had been expressed as .
to whether the town was adequately protected from failure by the
developers to complete the proj ~.
In an interview, after the signing,
Mayor Goddard said she felt the
town "is much better protected-
than if the town went out and borrowed money itself to build .the
marina". The lawyers have
described the contract as *"'an excellent agreement".
.GMHI must pay the town
$115,000 if it fails to complete
phase one of the marina. However,
in the event of non-performance by
the developers, the only way the
town can: recover the money te to
sue the developers personally..
Mayor Goddard declared;that
the council has faith in the
developers. "A new era is beginning for the town," she said, with
the long sought-after marina about
to become reality.;
Gibsons storm drain
concerns Fisheries
XtS1. Gibsons Council has received a
> letter from its consulting engineers,
Cpayton & Knight, recommending
•£that the town award the Bluff
¥§anitary Sewer Stage One contract
.*i.p Ring Contracting Ltd.
:*£'' The firm offered the lowest acceptable tender of $114,7,94 for
Alternate I in which the work is to
vb£ completed within sixty days of
|iljie award. Their tendered price for
Alternate II, which involves construction during more favourable
tides at a later date specified by the
tenderer, was $88,794 for. the
period May 15th — June 30th,
1984.
. Dayton & Knight inspected three
sanitary sewer contracts which
"Ring Contracting had completed
for the City of Nanaimo and
declared them to be satisfactory.
Sunday shopping
rejected in Sechelt
A dismal voter turnout of 15 per
cent of Sechelt's 716 eligible, voters
rejected   the   Sunday   shopping^
referendum in last ISaturday'svbte.7.
Of the 109 voters who cast ballots^-
68 were opposed to stores opening':
on Sunday within the village boun- •;
daries, while 46 were in.favbuf; XjX:-
. the low voter turnout may. be
attributed to the fact that there was
no mayoral or aldermanic vote required in Sechelt this year. Mayor
Joyce Kolibas and aldermen Ken
Short and Anne Pressley were all
elected by acclamation earlier this
month.    .',,;'.';;<> .
Habitat management division of
the Department of Fisheries, and
Oceans • has informed. Gibsons
Council that it will begin a programme monitoring discharge
from the storm sewer drain located
immediately, north of the boat
launching ramp in the harbour.
Mayor Goddard told council
that L;R. Russell, a biologist with
Habitat management division, had
received information at some time
about a fish kill in the Harbour
caused by discharge from the
drain, but she had been unable to
substantiate the claim.
Russell is also concerned that
there may not be sufficient draining of the harbour, .onCe.', the
breakwater for the marina is constructed. Habitat management will
therefore monitor the situation at
intervals over the next two years, at.
a cost of approximately $3,000 to
the town.
The drain concerned is spring
fed and drains a small area south
of the post office. Should
deleterious substances be found,
thejtown would have to.modify the
sewer discharge at the earliest
possible date. .

Deport condemned  l\ At last week's Gibsons council  meeting, the town planner, Rob  buchan, expressed his displeasure  with the just-released Boundary  Expansion report. It had been  hoped thai the report, which was  "prepared chiefly by Mr. B. Jawan-  $a, a planner with the provincial  government, with input from  Buchan and Jim Johnstone of the  Sunshine Coast Regional District,  would have settled some longstanding controversy on this issue.  | However, according to Buchan,  the report "merely.defined a pro-,  blem which the council and SCRD  are well aware of". He stated that  the "harsh criticism the document  has received is justified. It was no  secret to the other two that I was  unhappy with the report. At our  final meeting on October 24ih, I  strongly opposed the final draft".  Buchan recommended recall of  the Technical Planning Committee  to try to take the recommendations  of-the study, "to a usable conclusion in the near future".  Agreement reached  ri The school board decided at last  week's meeting to cancel the planned November 21 professional  development day as the students  jjave just missed.three days of  school. Any further discussion  febout the other such days in the  |chool year was put on hold until a  ��� Tetier from the Minister of Education, relating to the subject, was  received.  / The Sunshine Coast Teachers'  Association and the school board  have reached agreement regarding  the 1984 contract, so there will be  ho need to go to arbitration this  year. .  Teachers  The teachers and the board of  trustees of School District 46 have  reached a partial agreement concerning the 1984 contract.  X There will be no salary increases  in 1984. The board acknowledged  this fact by saying it reaffirms its  intent ions to manage budget decir  sions so as to reduce to a minimum  the impact of any budget reduction  Ion the educational programmes of  students and on the number of  staff to be employed.  ��� The board recognizes the fact  ihat teachers have accepted no in--  jrease for 1984, even though their  The basic salary structure will remain.the same as last year, i.e., no  increase in salary except for those  eligible for an annual increment.  No extra benefits have been  negotiated.  The teachers have agreed to  forego for this year any applications for professional leave of  absences so that the funds usually  allocated for this purpose can be  saved.- ;; .'"//'':'' ;���'.���.  There: are a couple of issues still  outstanding relating to the interpretation of Bill 3, but these do not  have to meet the government's  November 15 deadline.  1983 scale increase was eroded, like//  that of all school district staff, by  having five working days legislated /  away.  The two negotiating committees  reached agreement on'a BilP3 ex-;  emptioh clause concerning security/seniority arid- severance pay.  Although teachers, have ratified the  contract, the board has not yet  done so'.      .  Elves Club  The Elves Club Christmas food  hamper collection depots will be  openin^within a week.
