BC  V8V 1X4  Stan Joe tops polls  Band elects new chief  i;'   The Sechelt Indian Band  -' elections, held on Sunday,'  YEebruary 20,  resulted, in  ^'Stanley Joe being elected chief  with council members Thomas  Paul, Benedict Pierre, Evan  < Jeffries and Clarence Joe Jr.  The turn-out of voters was excellent with 178 casting ballots  " ^out of a possible total of 201.  ' -Joe received 80 votes and his  ^opponenjts, Gilbert Joe and-  , ^Calvin Craigan, 46 and 44  ,   respectively. Vote^ cast for  , councillors were Thomas Paul,  ,   127; Benedict Pierre, 119; Evan  Jeffries 119 and Clarence Joe  Jr. 65. Also running for council  were Anne Quinn, Wendell Joe  and Barbara Dixon.  "  With 10 years experience as  councillor Stan Joe told the  Coast News he feels ready to be  chief.  "It's like a boxer," he said,  "you want to be champ just  once before you retire.'' One of  his long-term goals as chief involves the economic development of the band. He would  v like to see three or  four  businesses functioning so that  all band members can become  ^self-sufficient.  , He stresses the importance of  education and of the need for  _students to finish school. He  will be pressing for the con-  - tinuation of the NES programme and the Indian cultural  programme at Sechelt elementary.  He would like to see  workshops on a daily basis in  the almost completed hall. At  present a video workshop is be*  ing conducted and a carving  programme is operating for 16  weeks under a federal grant. ]z  Joe looks forward to th��  passing of the Sechelt Indiatt  Band Charter as this will mean  the band will have title to its  own land and can carry on  business as a legal entity.      I;  He feels it is important that  the council makes firm decisions for the overall benefit of!,  the band land keeps a firm grip,  on what is going on in the ad- *  ministration.  The chief and councillors'  will, be officially sworn in on  March 17.

Subsequently'he  operated a hunting and fishing,  lodge at Babine Lake in the  (SiriboOi" ���  -��� I  * In 1973 Price moved back to'  Powell River as manager of the  Beach Gardens Resort, which  establishment he and his part-.  ners purchased in 1976.  Describing himself as a  typical free enterpriser, Price  said: "For years I was involved  with my business but I realized  that J would have to get invoved  with what was happening to my  taxes.      /  .   '  "We must turn into  ourselves and help protect our  lifestyles. We must get involved  to protect what is valuable for  our children and our children's  children otherwise we will not  get control of. our destiny and  that would, be a shamed"  Citing a meeting he had with  the premier,' the Minister of  Highways, and other govern-   ���  mentvleaders, Price said that   ;  xrrm"  wr t'r<  the long-awaited Gibsons bypass would be built 'in the near,  future'.  Price said that at a recent  meeting attended by.jthe  premier and Jim Pattison'and  others it was agreed that the key  to the future lay in 'freeing up  business'.  "Mind you 1 haven't received any brochures yet telling me  how to achieve that," said the  candidate.  The Socred candidate professed to find some value-injthe  current recession. "It |ias  reminded us of the danger^ of  getting over-extended',"] he  said, "but we are all living better. The average income isv still  good." Y  Koch may run again  race1  up  IT: The race for the mayor's  cTiair in the village of Sechelt  Appears to be warming-up. As  wegb to press it looks very like-  ly] that there will be three contestants for the position with  thore possible before the March  ���^deadline.  *> Already in the race are alderman Joyce Kolibas and former  alderman and regional director  Charles Lee. The third contestant is liable to be ex-mayor  Bud Koch who told the Coast  News that his final decision  would be made'this week.  ;~ Koch, whose resignation  because of business reas'bns  caused the by-election, said  that hehad been approached by  people from all parts of  tfie Sunshine Coast urging him  td run again.  Y Koch's main concern seemed  to be to oppose'Charles Lee  although he had signed Lee's  nomination papers when he  resigned office.  Y "I thought I had my finger  on the pulse of the people,"  s��id Koch, "but I am persuaded I was wrong."  n^The former mayor made no  Reference to the candidacy of  alderman Kolibas. *  > Alderman Kolibas said that  She was definitely in the  niayoralty race to stay despite  tumours that she would  withdraw,'  Several people have taken  out papers for the aldermanic  vacancy caused by alderman  Kolibas running for mayor.  At the time of going to press  Graham Craig, president of the  Sunshine Coast Health Foundation, seemed the most likely  aldermanic candidate for the  Kolibas seat. The aldermanic  race also has a March 4  deadline for entrants.  $/>   A "possible  worst-case  'y : scenario for a propane exploit Y*sion in^ Roberts .Creek was .  "J ^outlined Thursday night as the  - 7 regular meeting of the Sunshine  , I Coast Regional District board  . * by Area E (Roberts Creek)  ' director Brett McGillivray.  > : McGillivray was outlining his  4 recommendations to the board  ;; K concerning the location of the  r 4 ICG Liquid Gas Ltd. propane  * \' tanks in Roberts Creek.  <" f'    McGillivray described to  ri board members what would  ~X happen in the event of a "boil-  ' ing liquid expanding vapour ex-  . < plosion" (BLEVE) at the pre-"  \ sent site. He said experience in  >"���'; ' Arizona and. Spain indicates/  ���* &$hafsrgropanie'tarik.the sjze^f'  i those in Roberts Creek'wouldr'  if a BLEVE occurred, create  an    explosion that would  destroy an area of one-half mile  radius. If this were to happen  stated McGillivray's report,  "hundreds of people, including residents,  school  children and visitors to the core  of Roberts Creek, could be  potential   victims   of   a  BLEVE."  He pointed out that the  Roberts Creek school was  within a half mile radius of the  tanks and could suffer con-  ,,~- siderable damage in the event  v   of an explosion.  .The controversial issue of the  tank location heated up recently when McGillivray outlined  his concerns in a letter to thev  Ministry of Lands, Parks and  Housing.  ICG Liquid Gas responded  to McGillivray's letter by  stating that if its lease is not  renewed in January, 1984, the  result would "have a serious  adverse impact upon the  residential and industrial propane consumers in the Sunshine Coast Regional  , District...".  The company, in stating that  it is not practical to re-locate, its  existing facility, threatened to  "discontinue supply of propane to the Sunshine Coast.."  McGillivray's report stated  that the company is,  ..."holding the residents of the  Sunshine Coast... to ransom  with the threat 6f leaving if the  regional district does not find  them an alternative location."  He recommended to the  board: 1. That the SCRD  uphold the Roberts Creek Official Settlement Plan Policy  that the company's lease not be  renewed; 2.That-the board's  planning department meet with  the company to discuss relocation and 3 .That it be recognized  that it is^not the planning  department's responsibility to  find land.onchange.zpning, but ^  it is'the company'siespdnsibllip! :"  ty to assemble the' necessary  land and apply for rezoriing.;  Provincial Emergency Programme co-ordinator Art  McPhee told the Coast News*  Sunday that he felt McGillivray"  was "distorting the facts" con-;  cerning the tank location.'  McPhee stated that the condi-.  tions necessary for a BLEVE;  are so remote as to be not worth  considering. >    I -  He further stated that the  present site is the safest possible  location because it is over water'  and any leaks would be safejy  dispersed. He added that to  move the tanks would be far  more dangerous than leaving  them wljere {hey are.     , y*��  K ~ The board voted unanimous-1  Tly ao ^support   director  McGHiivray.ls rgcommemla^  tions.

Socred candidate Jim Price and his audience last week
both felt, apparently, that a talk given with a liberal
sprinkling of the phrase 'free-enterprise' would be
enough to establish his credentials and perhaps assure
his election.
Given the state of the practice of democracy, Price
may be right. We can't escape the feeling, however, that
slogans neither of the right nor the left will be enough
nor should be enough to elect a man to office.
Price stressed the importance of 'freeing-up business'
as a means of escape from the economic strait-jacket in
which we find, ourselves. What are we to make of the
fact that we have a provincial government which has
been singing that song to us since 1975? The present
coalition masquerading as Social Credit has had the
reins of power for almost eight years. Can they expect to
be re-elected just by mouthing the same old slogans?
Meanwhile pur premier, the one and only Miniwac, is
going around the province trying to persuade one and all
that he is above partisan politics. The mantle of
statesmanship he is struggling to assume is designed to
cover up the fact that, the government and the party are
bereft of new ideas or initiatives.
Nothing, certainly, that our Socred candidate said in
Gibsons last week indicated that we could expect any
fresh ideological, breezes from the right.
A point to remember
With admirable loyalty secretary-treasurer Mills writes
this week in defence of the local school board. There is
obvious merit in much of what he says. , ;
v We believe that the present.trustees havejabpured long
and hard to try to ensure that as little damage as possible
will be done by the cutbacks imposed on local school
boards. They have done as well as possible in an impossi-
bl.e situiation.     >'..'      -Xx.'..' .-:■-...;:. •'
In taking exception to the opinions offered by Frances
Fleming, however, Mills overlppks the fact that there
have indeed  been increases in the educational
; bureaucracy in 'this school district which are escaping
• consideration when cuts are being made.
A dozen years ago there was one senior educational ad-
Yministrator in the district, which at that time also included University Hill near UBC. At the present time there are
Ythree and for a while we luxuriated in four. ,
In that dozen years there hasn't been much more than a
20 per cent increase in the numbers pf teachers or pupils in
this district, which remains one of the smallest in the province. t Y ''■;■•''''*' '        '    ■      ■'■'-.;
Secretary-treasurer Mills might point out for us where
else there has been a tripling of manpower locally in the
last dozen years. '.,'■

Building to left on The Boulevard west of Wharf Avenue was
Sechelt's first school in 1912 and first telegraph office in 1913. It
was erected by Herbert Whitaker in 1899 as a store and post office.
Photo dates from the 1914-18 war, during which period Whitaker
constructed the building bearing the General Store sign. The two
shops were then joined together, with the older store housing the
butcher's department. In 1912 the province paid the teacher's
salary but the community was expected to provide a schoolhouse,
so Whitaker donated the interim use of his building. Three young
women, including Ada Cook (now Mrs. Sam Dawe) conducted a
tag day to raise money for equipment. The loggers were generous
and Ada's father, T.J. Cook, gave her $15, sufficient to purchase, .'
two desks. The first teacher, Miss Grace Kent, .received $60 perY;.t
. month. To attend her classes two boys walked daily between*,,*,
Sargeant Bay and Sechelt. Another 1912 pupil, Arnold McQuarrie,>.>.

My father, who died when I
was 13, recommended the
careers of three men to my attention. They were Mahatma
(The Great Soul) Gandhi,
. George Bernard Shaw, and the
American negro boxer Jack •
Oyer the years I did in fact
pay some attention. Of the
three, I learned the least about
- the greatest—Gandhi, and so it
■ .was with considerable anticipa- -.
tion that-I planned to see the'

; Y its recent:release..;; v    _      *W 'A
T; was in Victoria last weelo  "|
when the opportunity came to  "Y
see the film. On a Monday
night the. theatre in the island    *
capital was filled to capacity,    ;
an undoubted indication that     >
the; film was doing good
business despite the fact that it
had taken 20 years to persuade
the money men that it was a
valid investment.
I am of an age which enables
me to remember the news
stories1 in the forties about the
little brown man who controlled his followers by fasting. I
remember the shock of his
assassination among the adults
who surrounded me and I knew
he had led a non-violent cam-
' paign to get the British out of
' India. The film succeeds admirably in filling in any gaps in
one's knowledge of the life of a
man who arguably when the
history of the 20th century is
written will stand head and
shoulders above all others as
the greatest man of the century.
If the foregoing seems
somewhat far-fetched consider
the words of a man who could
> also be considered a candidate.
Albert Einstein said of Gandhi:
"Generations to come will
scarce believe that such a one as
this ever in flesh and blood
walked upon the earth".
Since Gandhi's assassination
at the hands of an Hindu
fanatic who belonged to a sect
which feared Gandhi, himself a
Hindu, would give too much
power to the Moslems in India,
much of the western world has
seen experimentation in the life
of simplicity and communal
-, living in reaction to the coarse
~ materialism of our time.
In the sixties, however .those
'who went back to the land
seemed persuaded that the
• forces of evil and injustice
wouldsomehow just melt away
before' benign enlightenment.
Of course, they did nothing of
the kind and many who ,
adopted the lives of rural
simplicity were discouraged
that the world did not change
the moment they thought they
were enlightened.
Gandhi on the other hand
was a fighter. He knew that evil
and injustice must be confronted. He sought through his
campaigns of non-violent non-
co-operation to alter the con
sciousness of the oppressors.
The way of struggle, he knew,
was apath of pain and of many
Near the end of the film when
he is again jailed by the British
for refusing to support the war
he is depicted being asked by an
American journalist if his tactics of non-violent non-cooperation would be effective
against such as Adolf Hitler.
"I do not know," said Gandhi. "It would be a <way of
much suf fering but has not this
armed' Struggle beeAn ^sueTi^a'1
way?"    >:■-       '
"I hav^nothing new to teach
the world," said the Great One.
"Truth and non-violence are as
old as the hills. AH I have done
* is to try experiments in both on
t as vast a scale as I could."
i     "In my humble opinion, "he
said, "non-co-operation with
.evil is as much a duty as is co-operation with good."
As the film makes clear,
Gandhi's achievements in
South Africa and India were
legendary. His death, however., ,.
by an assassin's bullet threw a .
cloud'over thpse achievements '
which has not yet dispersed.
Toward the end of his "life
Gandhi,  with* independence u
achieved, was preoccupied
with the prevention of violence
between Hindus and Moslems   ,
as an outgrowth of the distrust'
that the British left behind.
Recent events in the .news
have1 seen Hindus massacring
Moslems in Assam and" the
question may be raised whether
Gandhi was in fact 'a force
which changed tfie world
foreyer' as, the promotion
material for the film claims.
Next week let's try to take a
look at the man "and at the
nature of man to determine if
we can if there is anything still
to learn from the Mahatma.
I never had much.truck with,
queens but the imminent ar-
. rival of the big Queen herself
causes ,me to reflect upon the
meagre dealings I have had
with royalty. I actually saw the
Queen a couple of times, once
before she was promoted and
once after. I don't expect I'll
see her this time around and she
hasn't expressed any particular
interest in-visiting me. I would
Just as.sooh recall the first time
I saw her. I wasnomoreAhajn 11.
or 12 at the time but 4-knew-she .
was a real lady the second I laid
eyes on her. She waspretty too.
What business I ,have had
with queens has always had
some inconvenience associated
with it and since those early experiences I haven't gone out of
my way to make any royal acquaintances- " }
The first queen I ran up
against was Ellen May Lubcki
who, until her recent ascent to
May Queen at our school, was
just another scruffy little kid in
grade three.- Us boys figured
the only reason she was picked
was her middle name was May.
Ellen May had big teeth and
pigtails and not one redeeming
feature except she was good at
marbles. I remember when she
sat up on the stand during the
May Day celebrations in front
of the whole school she itched
herself constantly* in a rude
place and she had a big bandaid
on her knee from where she fell
out of a tree. , '■]     Y*
When she was picked to be
Queen, of the May she all of a
sudden stopped talking to ordinary folks like -me; • Even
when I squashed a spiderln her
notebook, she completely ignored the act in a sort of
noblesse oblige kind of way.
There's something about .the
monarchy that makes tHem different from you and me. -"
The Gipsy Girl
"Come, try your skill, kind gentlemen,
A penny for three tries!"
Some threw and lost, some threw and won
' A ten-a-penny prize.
She was a tawny gipsy girl,
A girl of twenty years,
I liked her for the lumps of gold
, That jingled from her ears;
I liked the flaring yellow scarf
Bound loose about her throat,
I liked her showy purple'gown
And flashy velvet coat.
A man came up, too loose of tongue,
And said no good to her;
She did not blush as Saxons do,
Or turn upon the cur;
* ."
She fawned and whined, ''Sweet gentleman
A penny for three tries!"
—But, oh, the den of wild things in
The darkness of her eyes! ■

As soon as Ellen May put on ,'\.
that dumb cardboard, crown, \",''
she was elevated to a position Y,*.
from which she seemed to gaze ,Y,;
down upon the rest of us poor',^
mortals—even tho.ugh she was Y,.
. a good six inches shorter than "YY
anybody else. She stopped ~q
playing marbles for a whole ^;Y
..week  and  stayed  in  the^-j"-
classroom at recess and cleaned ^
blackboard  brushes.  She 7i>
p ibecame in faqt a royal pain.-1    ,Jf

. was only a princess at the lime. t'^
Before that I had seen Eleanor ^t
Roosevelt and even though she ^
wasn't a real queen, she seemed /
like one to me. -    - ,v
The time I saw Princess ,j' ,\
Elizabeth was when I was a cub 1,.:
scout for about six months un- Y,'
til I found out.I wasn't suited to t>
the military. There were a cou- ^ .,
pie of thousand, of us down at ,7'/,
the old Brockton Oval in --.
Stanley Park and we were sup- ^.,
posed to-stand around the track ,..
in some kind of organized form l- i:
and wait until our Queen was (..,
driven around the track to »._,
check us out. r
It was cold and wet; my knees, -*i
were blue; the cub master
wouldn't let us wear coats and
this was the first of many experiences that'taught me that  f^
ladies, even queens, arc not
always sticklers; /or time.-We >,»*1
must have stood out there for  *>."'
an hour and a half until She  '.j '
showed up.  t. '    "<• •
I remember,- however, that •?.
when she. drove by she smiled w[
right at me and-waved her
■ hand. The funny thing was that "3
after the event, every kid in our ':»
pack said the same thing. .r%e
That's the thing about real o
royalty, they can make people ^
think' they're looking right at
them. I had a terrible cold for
about two weeks.
The last time 1 saw the Queen
turned into a bit of an inconvenience as well. I was working in
London and found myself!
nearly late for work, getting off
at the wrong underground sta-1
tion. I was about to make a
dash on foot to try and cover
the half mile to my place of
employment when a ver-y big
police 6fficer put the collar on
me with the obligatory, "ello,
ello, ello, what's all this then".
It seems my route was intersected* by a planned royal
motorcade and I would have to
wait where I was until the royal,
party had passed by. As it turn--,
ed out the Queen was no more
punctual than the last time I'd
seen her. I was an hour late for
work and had my pay docked;
And to add insult to injury, this
time the Queen completely ignored me, looking neither right
nor left as she was chauffeured
by in a maroon Rolls Royce.
I don't think I'll bother trying to see the Queen this time
round.. It's not that I have
anything against her, it's just' .
that I haven't had much luck? '
with queens in the past. Editor,  I should probably call this an  open letter to Frances Fleming  because it seems to me that the  last!two occasions that I have  felt! impelled to put things  straight in your paper have  related to instances where Mrs.  Fleming had, in complete, ignorance of the true state of affairs, pchpseri to be critical of  this-schbol board.  A[nd it's the same thing  again; I do not recall seeing  Mrs. Fleming at any of the  numerous special budget  meetings of this school board,  all of which were publicized in  the ne\ypapers, nor has she  taken the opportunity of  discussing with this office just  what impact the restraint pro-  . gramme has had so far on the  classrooms of this school  district: Nonetheless she has  seen fit to write an article and a  poem which, by implication if  not by outright statement,  leads the reader to believe that  . the classroom has taken the  brunt bf the restraint programme, and the school board  and the senior staff have been  serenely unaffected. In this  school district nothing could be  further from the truth, and  Mrs. Fleming would have done  both her reputation, and;  education in this community, a  service by finding out what the  real situation is, and then  writing a reasoned analysis of  it.  We haven't laid off any  cleaning "staff in this school  district, although we have  spijead them a bit thinner as additional classrooms have been  built., We haven't laid off any  teacher aides; indeed, thanks to  additional funding from the  Ministry of Human Resources,  we have more of them now than  we had a year ago. We haven't .  laid off any school secretaries  or library clerks; indeed, three:  schools that didn't have library  clerks now have them, and  Elphinstone has a laboratory  aide they didn't have in 1981.  There were less pupils per  teacher in September 1982 than  in September 1981, and we  haven't increased 'any/, district  or administrative^ staff; 'so this''  hadYto" mean^^mbrt'teachers in  the classroom, and? we have  more "teachers on istaff now  than we had in September 1982.  We did reduce the amount of  clerk-receptionist time at the  school board office, however,  and we did manage for well  over a year without the services  of a director of buildings and  grounds. This board and its  senior staff went to enormous  lengths to minimize the impact '  on theV classroom'of the  restraint programme, and we  are in receipt of congratulatory  comments from staff in that  respect.!

"  H0TTlNE885^7i512  Skookum R   u  Dealer 7381 Sechelt  In the matter of class size,  which Mrs. Fleming seems particularly concerned about, is  she aware that the teachers  themselves do not seem to share  her concern to the same extent?  In negotiations we offered our  teachers that we: would not  reduce the number'of teaching  positions if they would agree to  no increase in the salary scale  for 1983 over 1982. We said if  they got a pay rise we wouldn't  be able to afford to keep as  many people on staff. They  replied in effect,."We want a  pay rise and we'll go to arbitration."  At the arbitration hearing,  the day before we presented our  case, I heard an official of the  BCTF, who was speaking on  behalf of the Powell River  teachers, say in so many words  that it would be. a pity if  anybody had to be fired in  order to give the teachers a pay  rise, but if that's what had to  happen then that's what would  have to happen, they're entitled  to a pay rise, and they wanted  it, and they wanted 9 per cent.  So he, for one, was quite  prepared to see 9 per cent of the  Powell River teachers fired in  order tp give the rest of them 9  per cent of a pay rise. Our own  people didn't put it that blunt-  A gym is no theatre  ly, but they did ask for 9'/i per  cent.  Did you know of those facts  and figures Mrs. Fleming? If  you didn't, now that you do,  does it make any difference to  your position? Did you know  that the $4,000 a year  honorarittm of a school trustee  averages about $15 an hour, a  lot less for some, and it's nearly  all evening and weekend work?  Did you know that last year I  offered *to take. 18 days off  without pay on a schedule acceptable to the trustees to help  balance the budget?  The editor has categorized  you as an expert. Experts tend  to be believed by non-experts,  and I think this lays upon them  an obligation to be sure of their  facts before taking up a position. In my opinion, you have,  once again in matters concerning this school board inadequately researched the facts  before rushing into condemnatory print. Also, in the interests of accuracy, will you  confirm to Mr. Burnside that  you were never ''the  superintendent of superintendents for the ministry" but.  were assistant superintendent  of special education, certainly a  responsible position but not the >  one he credited you with.  ' : "   Y- - - k: Mills"  Editor,  With regard to the recreation  centre design submitted by J.  Kramer. We do not need  another school gymnasium-  type hall. If people want to do  aerobic dance, let them use the  existing school gymnasiums.  But we do need a building  which can be used for a theatre,  i.e. with good acoustics. None  of the existing school halls are  acoustically designed.  Since we are isolated from  the cultural events-in Vancouver���even more so with the  lack of a late ferry���it is more  necessary than ever to provide  adequate facilities for the performing arts, whether we"im.r-  port therh or provide our own.  Let's not rush into accepting a  compromise building, usable  for anything but suitable for  nothing.  .  Josephine A.

Anyone in Area B who is interested may phone any of the  following numbers and a director will call on you,at your;  convenience,     885-3334,  885-927.6^885-5371,88^3126..,  Jack Herriiiston  President of Area B  Ratepayers' Association  Association responds  Editor,  It has been drawn to our attention that public comment of  a grossly distorted nature has  been made recently concerning  the affairs of this association.  We would have it recorded  publicly, in an endeavour to  correct the impressions  fostered, that the dispute referred to in another newspaper  was between this association  and Wendy Lynne Johns. Our  employer, Glassford Press  Ltd., was not a party to the  dispute. -Y ������'/������'';  Ms. Johns was demanding  premature repayment of contributions made by her during  the past eighteen months to this  association for the purpose of  share purchase iri Glassford  Press Ltd. Her claim was pressed in contravention of the constitution of this association,  which constitution she had  helped to draft and administer,  as the Association's treasurer.  Connie Hawke, President  Glassford Press  Employees Association  Covering  the Coverage  by Jim Ansel)  Am I Cbvered For Everything?  "I have paid insurance for fifteen years and have  never had a claim. Do you mean that I cannot claim for  my $50.00 whatsit because it isn't covered under my  policy?"  Every Agent has heard this statement before. It would  be nice to cover all claims submitted but, unforturiatelyi  it is just not possible. Your insurance policy is simply a  contract which will do no more and no less than what is  declared in its wordings.  There is no such thing as a policy which will cover absolutely everything against absolutely anything. For  peace of mind, it is better for you to knowYyour  coverages before you have to use them. You should be  aware of your own and your, insurance company's  obligations under the terms of the contract. To this end,  I strongly recommend the following:  1) Ensure that your Agent takes the time to explain  your poUcy coverages to you, at the time of issue/  detailing all of the pertinent voids and limitations  which could affect you.  Y   ;  2) After you receive it, READ YOUR POLICY  OVER CAREFULLY. If you get stuck anywhere  or if you need clarification on any point, contact  your Agent. He will be pleased that you have read  your policy and wilt.no doubt welcome any ques-  ;   tions that you have.   Y  Sunshine Coast Insurance Agencies Ltd.

Sandy Hook  TV stalled  A proposal to have the Sunshine Coast Regional District  raise; $40,000 through a  specified area by-law to finance  cableYvisipn facilities for the  East Porpoise Bay area received a setrback last week when a  letter from the Ministry of  Municipal Affairs to the SCRD  - turned down the idea. Reasons  for refusal stemmed from the  fact that it is apparently illegal  for a public body to help  finance the activities of a  private company, in this case  Coast Cable Vision.  Regional board directors  recommended that the Sandy  Hook Property .Owners.  Association continue to press  for the 100 homeowners required to allow Coast Cable Vision to proceed with the East  Porpoise Bay extension. According to directors, 78 people  have already indicated an interest in the service.  by Jeanie Norton, 886-9609  Things are starting to move  on finishing the community use  rooms in the downstairs of the  joint facility. A little bit of  plumbing was to be done this  ���weekend and then the gyproc  and t-bar for the drop ceiling  can be put up.  We still need somebody to do  the taping on the drywaHing.  So far only two very reluctant  and totally inexperienced  lackeys have been coerced.  Are there any volunteers out  there who'd come to the rescue  of these damsels and lend the  benefit, of their expertise?  CARNIVAL COMING  As things on the local  economic scene get grimmer,  the idea of pooling resources  and knowledge about how to  get through hard times seems  better and better. That's the  aim of the Survival Carnival  being held March 5 and 6 at  Elphinstone High School starting at 10 a.m.  There'll be demonstrations  and displays, panel discussions, entertainment, a potluck  dinner, and a swap meet. It's  intended to be both informative and fun so plan on catching at least part of the activities.  ICE TIME  The students and teachers of  Roberts Creek Elementary, accompanied by parents and  friends, enjoyed an afternoon  of skating last Friday. At least,  mostx>f them enjoyed it. There  were a lot of spills and at least  one teacher was observed walking on the inside of her ankles  afterward. But isn't that what  we all remember about  skating?

"This is a Sechelt sewer,"  said Bist."The village of  Sechelt is paying for it through  taxes but we do not seem to  have a meaningful voice in the  agreement."  Also of concern was $70,000  spent on Anchor Drive by the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District. "-  "We must demand a cost  breakdown," said Bist; "This  is our tax> money and we don't  have a say in where itgoes."

WOMEN'S NETWORK  DINNER:  Seventy women gathered at  Chatelech, secondary school  (drama room to enjoy a dinner  provided by the Transition  House Committee on Thursday, February 24.  Food for the mind was provided by a very thought-  provoking speaker, Anne  Cameron, a woman first, poet,  author, scriptwriter and orator,  first class.  Women need to think of the  things she talked about, the  energy created by education  only to be lost as it becomes  confined to home. Women can  "cope but when they speak out in  great concern over injustices a  red herring is thrown across  their path and they are labeled  as radicals. A person really had  to be there to appreciate the  quiet anger working for the  good of all women emanating  from Anne.  Ricki Moss, co-ordinator for  Continuing Education programmes, thanked the speaker  and now would like to know  what further discussion or  ideas generated from this  presentation should be explored. Phone her at 885-3512.

Her exhibition at the Hunter  Gallery in Gibsons, "Glitz +  Glitter", futher confirms this  reputation andjprovides us with  what is probably the best work  she has produced to date.  This time around Trudy has  taken paper and dripped paint  on it, collaged different cut  papers and found objects,  sprayed on enamel paint,-then  metallic paint, and finally  sprayed on laquer thinner. Dryr  ing times foneach. layer 'varies  from 20 minutes to two weeks,.  and the chemical ^reactions  result in bubbling, peeling, and  lusciously luminous colour effects. .  Trudy has always been interested in the process of making art; the experimentation,  spontaneity, and chance effects, but often the results,  though interesting, had the  uneasing feeling of a lack of  control. Here chance still plays  a role, but careful composition  with the collage parts brings  confidence and strength to the  finished work, particularly in "  "Mandarin Red. Glitz" and  "Red Black Silver".  ��� "The works on display are  essentially abstract with title  - references to stimulate the imagination, and one can revel in  ' the intricate rippling surface  textures, inch colour  har-  -. monies, or the play between  : geometrical sphere/squarie/  % rectangular shapes contrasted  with fluid amorphous shapes.  "Slides '38' " does all this  ��� beautifully!  ������' The inner exhibition room of  -the Hunter Gallery has never  ���been so complete in at-  i-mosphere as. with Trudy  ^Small's show; innovative  - mounting,"' subdued lighting,  and a compliment of metallic  silver folded paper sculptures  - reflected in mirrors that create  *-unusual illusions. To top it off,  -the prices are right.  - 1 do find the title of the exhibition;  "Glitz   -k Glitter",  ��� though cute, has connotations  ''of being cheap and vapid,  ; which I do not feel these work's  ' are. Indeed, the clirrent work  of Trudy Small instead shows  us that she has. brought depth  and maturity to. her approach  in making art. ^Exhibit? continues to the second week of  .March. ���.: X''X'-'Xr'xx'X-yXX.yx--.  by Jalien Shandler  February 28 - March 6 ,   ', ; .  Exciting, surprising, unusual  events ADD sparkle to life and  growth. We all get a "lift":  Higher realms are open to us as  well    via    dreaming    or  meditating. Hence dreams are  especially significant and  should not be brushed over; We'  can balance our need for logic  and our fine-tuned intuition  and apply both to penetrative  study of any subject.  ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)  A harvest of some kind  crowns your exertions.

Your loyalty to your friends  is paramount. Consideration  and trustworthiness are virtues  to be-practiced. People find  your philosophic conceptions  attractive'. A pressing matter  concludes swiftly and well.  GEMINI (May 21-June 21)  Your burning desire to  master certain skills as proficiently as possible is sated. You  are poetic. There is a respite  from chronic ^ tense situation  and hope for; a cure. The '  horizon brightens.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  You are again in foreign-  waters. If impediments.to action are truly7 in^  back, reflect.^Discretion.is,the ,,���  clue to breaking through. You  may find your Own company to  be best.  LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)  ��� You are lord (lady) of the  faces of life, powerful and in  control. Spin the wheel of fortune and see what Lady Luck  can bring; Recognition from  contemporaries is due to intellect, self-discipline, self-  confidence without conceit.  VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  ; An invitation to a festivity  warrants preparation and excitement. You can blend your  needs for freedom and for love;  but you will feel somewhat  : uprooted untilyou delve deeply  into a philosophy of life. Com-  .; ihittment should follow only  after brave anid successful experimentation: x  LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)  You are performing in. prominence and carry it.off with a  low-key approach. Fame  follows accomplishment  naturally and as naturally hides  from those who seek it. Exercise writing ability. Fantasies  may veil relevant goals.  SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)  You excel iri striking the correct balance between strict  adherence to natural low and  the necessity to break  monotonous routine with  creative expression. The poetic  artistic world draws you more  than the scientific and you enjoy showing off its  magnificence.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-  Dec.21)  If you can  bring your  .CLASSIFIED. NOTE ������������ .

Be prudent in choosing compatriots with whom to share  this process. Follow your  psychic instincts. Overcome  your moodiness and desire to  withdraw.  ' ,  ?_  AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Be careful not to allow self-  confidence to flourish into  egotism. Remain valiant and  sustain peace with hardened  'personalities who inflict  restrictive nonsensical constructs upon you. Exhilarate in  past-time that irks them when  they've gone.

A dollar saved is a dollar earned,���and it's tax free; but by golly Mr. Taxman in his greedy desire for more money for  more political handouts has even tried to tax purchase discounts. You'll remember the.recent attempts to declare  employee purchase discounts as taxable revenue. Thank heaven that bureaucratic mischief was quickly put down by. a  swell of public opposition! <  How a person spends their earned dollar, whether with great care to obtain more benefits', or for an ego trip, is a  very personal decision. Furthermorelsthe decision on how and on what we spend our incorfjeis one that we must live  by, and one which will determine .our well-being and contentment. ^ ~ fl '  v-  > ,      ' %"-, : "* ' , ���'  I will be involved in the Continuing Education programme to be conducted at the senior high school in Gibsons on  March 5th and 6th under the title SURVIVAL CARNIVAL. The co-ordinator, Selia Karsten has organized what has all the  possibilities of two good days of learning how to cope fronrveach other's experience. Old-timers, like myself, will be  discussing our recollections of the Hungry Thirties and making some comparisons with the situation today, some 50  years later." i  One of the failures of mankind is the failure to learn from the past. Each generation can learn, it seems, only from  it's own living experiences^   ,  It is one thing to be miserly, which 1 interpret as self-inflicted misery for the sake of accumulating money. It is quite  another thing to be thrifty. For in being thrifty, we can set ourselves up to have and enjoy the necessities, and some of  the pleasures, too, of life. "  I've been doing quite a lot of thinking on this subject of late, as I see people carefully shopping for their daily needs.  It is good business on our part to quickly mark down unsold perishables such as bakery products, fresh meat, and produce while they are still edible. I abhor waste! It is good for the store to sell at reduced prices rather than discard tp  the garbage bin .'.More and more people now regularly shop the bakery and produce markdown bins. These people go  home with more for their money.  Others, like the young lady I met in the grocery aisles'this week, do a comparison shopping oh the things they  regularly buy,���not Just the specials, that they may or may not need. She told me that as a result of her study, she buys  most of her needs in our store. Nice to hear.  Bigger is not necessarily better!  Super  ~  fop  %    Hot  Powdered E^et.  V' i " " '    .

Twenty young  -swimmers ranging in age from  six years to fourteen attended  in full force from the Seals of  Pender Harbour.  For some it was the first entry  into a sanctioned swim meet.  For others it was a chance to  renew acquaintances from  former meets and swap phone  numbers of newly made  friends. For the parents and  coaches it was good to see how  easily our kids met and mingled  with city kids of every colour,  creed and origin. Swim meets  are definitely a social thing as  well as competitive. ���  Bringing back 52 overall ribbons was a big boost to the  team's enthusiasm and morale.  Over 500 swimmers from  around the province competed  in the two day meet. Some  events had 70 to 80 swimmers  entered. Our swim team has  greatly improved and now has a  few level one swimmers. Coming from such a small .community this is quite a feat. To  train and become a class one  swimmer, takes a lot of work,  endurance and just plain guts.  Something to be admired.

Sechelt Pacman was not to  be denied in outplaying the  Gibsons Goldhawks and handing them their first loss by a  5-0 score. The Goldhawks  defense were unable to withstand constant pressure from  the Pacman forwards.  In a much closer game the  Sechelt Drifters bested the Gibsons Firebirds by a 2-0 score.

The rights, powers,  duties and liabilities of a board  'of school trustees rest only with  the legally constituted board  -and not with committees of  trustees or individual trustees.  ��� The board.of school trustees  act under the Public Schools -  iAct and Regulations of the  Province of British Columbia.  The original Act has been revised and changed so much most  copies are useless. Regulations  upon regulations have been  passed. These are changes or  '\: alterations in the act which  .have been made by the Lieutenant Governor in Council  1 under the Act, i.e. the cabinet, -  ��� and which have, never been  > debated in the House.  The novice trustee would-  , find it most difficult to obtain  I copies of the act and regulations, let alone understand the  ^complexities, contradictions  | and legal jargon.  '    Most trustees agree to run  ; for office because of some local  ; problem which their supporters  4 hope to solve. High on the list is  ) concern for the costs of district  ���schooling; but also on the list  1 are such items as need for a new  building or service, or a desire  .to get rid of some teacher or  principal who may be causing  -some problems. The success  rate is not impressive.  -  The new trustee is immediately made aware of his  lack of experience, and the.  powerhouse of professional ex-  pertise which is conducting the  district affairs. The,ensuing  bewilderment and natural confusion experienced by capable  and intelligent persons usually  result in reluctant compliance.  The would-be reformer finds  roadblocks and plausible explanations the order of the day.  In no time at all, most trustees  become apologists for the  board as. the realization of  helplessness'dawns. One must  play the trustee game according  to the rules, and the rules come  from. Victoria.  One would have to research a  long time to discover a public-  elected group with less  autonomy .than a board of  school trustees. The budget is  circumscribed by alphabet  soup, sectionalized with each  section independent of- the  other.  In Maryanne West's.,article  in last week's Coast News, she  wrote: Trustees felt-that (the  government's appropriation of  a $200,000 unspent monies  from < J Section) is ^actually <���  politically dishonest.;.Of  course board members moved  to circumvent this move, but  they are dnly playing the  bureaucratic shell game,..not  undertaking an intelligent  fiscal move as free planners.. 7  So, cap in hand, our local,  trustees join other boards of  school  trustees,  moving  reverently toward the source  for permission" to budget  $12,444,225 for one year of  education on the Sunshine -  CoastV And the warnings are  out���we will have to let  teachers go if the budget is cut  back to. provincial guidelines.  Why teachers???'  'There is something rotten in  the entire system. Our trustees  deserve Purple.Heart medals  for endurance if for nothing  else. If they> had ��� local  autonomy, we could hold them  responsible. We can only sympathize and pay up our taxes  wherrthey come due. Education is, not a local matter any  mqre.

Editor,  In her letter to the Coast  News of February 21, 1983,  Carole Punt accuses Pro-lifers  of imposing their views. She  says that "...for some, abortion is an emotionally charged  issue," but she does not fall into this category herself because  she "knows that* as soul, we  enter into a physical body after  a chosen body separates from  the mother���after birth".  Upon this supposed knowledge  as to when man becomes a living soul, (a theological .question* akin to "How many angels  can dance oh the head of a  pin? *'), she proceeds to exclude  herself, and anyone else she can  "impose her views" upon;  v from any emotional concern  with respect to abortion.  Although we may not know  ��� exactly when a soul and body  "are united, we do know sufficiently enough about the  physical bodies of the unborn  to affirm that they react to differing stimuli very much as  other human beings do, eg., a  _ loud noise will startle them and  make them jump; soft music or  a car ride will often put them to  sleep; they will recoil from a pin  prick!  , Henry Morgantaler, the professional abortionist from  Quebec, recently stated oh a  radio talk show in Vancouver,  that the majority of abortions  -done in Canada occur during  the second trimester (3,-6 months "gestation). The method  most commonly used to accomplish an abortion at this  stage of pregnancy is by an injection of saline solution into  the uterus of the pregnant  mother. Hie process, nicknam-.  ed "salting out", kills the life  within as it breathes in the  poisonous solution. The outer  layer of the infant's tender skin  is also burned off. Have you  ever poured salt on an open  wound? It takes this little  -human being about an hour to  -' slowly die. About one day later  the would-be mother delivers  the dead body.  . '; Please, I do not say this to be  .offensive or unnecessarily  grueling. But the fact must be  faced that the question of abortion involves much more than  the abstract idea of whether or  not the unborn have a soul. We  are dealing with the concrete  *' realities of life and death and  physical pain. And to those of  ' us who are not so enlightened ad  Carole Punt, the fact that  ' about 4,000 abortions a year go  on in Vancouver General  Hospital, is a matter of considerable emotional concern.  She says, "we should have -  the freedom to choose whether  'Or not we want an abortion":  Should I be given the freedom  to choose to terminate her life  upon the grounds pf presuming  that she has no soul? Of course  - not. To apply freedom of  choice in this way is monstrous!  Freedom of choice stops where  > the rights of others begin.  She says Pro-lifers attempt  to erode personal freedoms.  Was Abraham Lincoln eroding  personal freedoms when he  took action to stop the oppression of the blacks by freedom  loving white southerners?  Carole Punt says Pro-lifers  impose | their views. Since the  liberalization of abortion laws  in Canada, half a million  babies have been willfully  destroyed. Who really is imposing what upon whom? Robert  Burns said, "Man's inhumanity to man makes countless  thousands mourn?'.

Consensus >vas  that the event was most interesting and informative. " .'  On the  Seafood Platter  by Chak-chak  While attending the Boat and  Sportsman's Show in Vancouver I was kept quite busy  handing out brochures and  newspapers, so busy in fact that  I did not take time to read,  through the current issue until  someone mentioned that I  seemed to be a very controversial columnist if the letters to  the editor were any indication.  I turned to the'' Letters to the  Editor" section and sure  enought here was a letter from  . Mr. Robert J. Corlett who had  leaped to the defense of Rick  Rottluff who it seems had suffered from an "uncalled-for attack" by myself. Mr. Corlett  then went on to question my  scholastic background and accused me of "suggesting that  local fishermen are wasting  their time fighting the Pearse  Report instead of pursuing fish  farming".  This is a very interesting  statement indeed in view of  what I actually stated in my column of January 17, 1983. I  leave it to you, clear reader, to  decide who is dealing in facts  and who is using fiction to build  a case to discredit the veracity  in my reporting on the meeting  in December which was held in  Sechelt to discuss and deal with  the recommendations in the  Pearse Report.*/  It would seem that both Mn  Rottluff and Mr. Corlett are  determined to place me in an  adversarial position in regard  to. their views on the Pearse  Report and the pros and cons of  "fish farming and ocean ranching.  In order to; discredit any  statement that I might make in  debating the; above pros and  cons if I should choose to take  up his, challenge,7 Mr. Corlett  proceeds to enumerate Rick  Rottluff's knowledge and experience in activities relating to  the salmon fishery, including  ���Jane McOuat pholo  five years participation in the  Salmonid Enhancement Program. This five years no doubt  being spent with the Gibsons  Wildlife-Club's SEP activities.  I might point out that some  25 years ago I proposed to the  late Roy Malyea that the Gibsons Rod and Gun Club (now  the Gibsons Wildlife Club)  become involved in enhancing  and improving the conditions  for spawning salmon in our  local streams.  I do not claim to be an expert  but I believe that I am not a  Johnhy-come-lately when it  comes to the promotion of improving salmon stocks through  providing a better environment  and correcting some of the  detrimental conditions caused  by man's activities in logging,  mining and road building, etc.  Co-operation is what is needed not confrontation if we are  going to solve today's  economic problems! Sea you.  Over the winter months I  have been writing about  various plants, both common  and uncommon. It is now time  to get down to more immediate  concerns, but before that I  would like to give a few short  reviews of those books I have  used for research and have  found most helpful,and interesting. .  My most faithful standby  over many years has been A  Modern Herbal - The Medicinal, Culinary, Cosmetic and  Economic Properties, Cultivation and Folk-Lore of Herbs,  Grasses, Fungi, Shrubs and  Trees With All Their Modern  Scientific Uses by Mrs. M.  Grieves FRHS.This is in two  volumes and published by  Dover Publications, Inc., New  York. It is a fascinating' encyclopaedia, a book to browse  through at random, or to use as  a reference volume. Another  informative book is a Pan  Books publication, Herbs for  Health and Cookery by Claire  Loewenfeld and* Philippa  Back, of Chiltern Herb Farms.  This is an excellent handbook,  , with an easy-to-find format in-  cluding many recipes,  medicinal, culinary, and  cosmetic.  . I Have also used two books by  Richard Lucas, Common' and  Uncommon Uses of Herbs for  Healthful Living and Nature's,  Medicines. There are dozens of  other books on herbs', too  numerous to mention here, but  one other I would heartily  recommend is the Rodale Press  Book of Herbs. I have used the  Roidale Gardening En*  cyclopaedia for years and have  found it very helpful and  reliable. This new herb book  seems to follow its example.  Our .winter has been very  mild, and it is easy to think that  summer is just around the corner. May bulbs are already in  flower and others are ready to  '. bloom any day. If it seems likely to freeze for alengthy period,  remember to give your most  forward plants some protection, such as a good mulch of  straw.  Many of you may have  ;  already ordered your seeds  from catalogue, but for those  who haven't here are a few  pointers.  1. Read , the catalogues  carefully arid choose seeds  suitable for t>ur climate zone.  2. Remember that a package  of seed will often last two or  three years, so don';t? over-  order. It is expensive to do so;.  .and not-all seeds are viable for-,  any length of time..        >  3. Stick to those varieties  yOu've found suitable for your  garden, but try. something new  each year.. The seed houses are  constantly improving their products arid offering new strains.  "Try some new annual flowers  or a vegetable you've never  grown before.  Once you've planted some of  the seeds keep the rest in their  packages so that 'next, year  you'llhave all the pertinent information. Keep the packages  in a covered container and store  under cool, dry conditions.  There  are  some  general  ��� guidelines for keeping seeds.  Those which are comparatively  short-lived are, sweet corn,  parsnip, leek, onion. Those  good for three or four years include bean, brussel sprouts,  turnip, radish, spinach, lettuce, carrot, kale, kohlrabi,  peas, pepper, cabbage, celery,  beets, cucumber, tomato,  watermelon.  '    If you have some seeds and *  are not certain if they are  viable, you can test them. Take  a few seeds and put them on a  damp paper towel in a warm  place. Check them when the  germination time is up and if  more than half of them have  sprouted, that package is  almost certainly viable. If less  than half have sprouted, it is  probably, wise to buy fresh  seed.  If for some reason you prefer  to buy, your seeds directly from  the store, looking through the  seed catalogue is a good way to  decide on your purchases.  Make notes and then look for  the seeds at your local outlet.  This is a good time to check  your gardening tools for those  in need of repair or replacement. Repair planter boxes and  fences or trellises. Take a walk  . around the garden area to see  just where you want everything  to grow. Make a map of,the  garden space and mark out  your rows with an eye to the  direction taken by the suni  Place taller plants behind,;  where they will not block the]  light, unless you use them to  shade those plants which prefer  cooler temperatures. Take into'  consideration successive plantings; you will not plant all yourl  lettuce, radishes, spinach;  beets, carrots or kohl family af  the same time. Leave space for  successive plantings' -or makex  sure you have early crops that>  will leave space once harvested.' *  Avoid over-planting; you cair^  only eat acertain amount of lettuce, for example, and planting  a long row all at once will give  you far too much. If you use  this time to prepare for the  gardening year, you'H find  things go much more smoothly."  Next week we'll look at when to;  start seedlings," when to plant:  peas and how to tell when the_  soil is ready to work.  CONTRACTING  Sunshine Coast  EXCAVATING  Need this space?

Maryanne's   Viewpoint
Expediency' not good enough
by Maryanne West
I suppose it's refreshing to
have the mayor of Gibsons admit she acted, not for "good
planning" but for. "political
expediency". After all, we're
all human: But is political expediency ever an excuse for bad
planning, for. siding with a
special interest group or for
thwarting the wishes of the people? Maybe political expediency would be defined differently
by others. For me, the "K"
zone vote was a classic example, s
Residents of Areas B and E
expressed strong feelings that
parts, if not all, of their residential, areas should be zoned for
lots not smaller than one third
acre. This, needless to say, did
not sit well in some quarters. It
was, however, supported by the
planners for a variety of
technical reasons. {
The "K" zone by-law was
duly processed, sent to Victoria
for approval, okayed there and
returned for the regional
board's official stamp, the
vote was tied and chairman
Goddard, saying she didn't
personally agree with the "K"
zoriebut because it was the wish --
of the residents of Areas B and
E, she cast her'votes for. it and
the *'K'-' zone passed 11-8.
4Goddard'-s    reputation ,
soared, a politician of stature,
someone of whom we could all
be proud. But not for long.
.For some :reason another
look was needed and a second
vote. One can only guess what
went oh behind the scenes,.but
obviously pressure was
brought to bear and Goddara
and Kolibas gave in. It became
"politically expedient" for
Sechelt's director to change her
vote, which also let the chairman off the hook as on the second vote the by-law was easily
defeated 10-6.
Allegedly the consortium
whichk invested in the Bonniebrook property in Area E .
will go bankrupt if they can't
subdivide into one quarter acre
lots. Since when did the
liveability of the whole area
have to be sacrificed because
someone made a bad investment or the bottom fell out of
the market? ••,
Why is it that these proponents of free enterprise suddenly .become such cry babies
and demand their "right" to be.
bailed out by the taxpayers
when things go wrong?
Sorry, but I refuse to feel
guilty over the sad state.of the.
real estate industry. Did they
cry for us when they artificially
inflated land values to make
greater, profits and so sent the
taxes forthe rest of us soaring?
. Of course they didn't; and I see
no reason why good govern- X-
ment and good planning has to
be sacrificed to save their in- .
vestments. .
It used to be salf-understood
that elected regional board ,
directors undertook to repre-,.
sent not just those of like mind,
who voted for them, but allthe'
residents bf their 'constituencies, and further to look at the
Sunshine Coast as a whole, to
move from the narrow confines r
of self-interest to a responsibility for the public good. There .
was rarely a need to invoke a
weighted vote, (each Area has. ,
votes based on population) •'.
because all directors respected' -
the wishes of the residents of -
any given area.
I believe we should demand
the highest standards of integrity from our politicians from the
local level to the Prime Minister
and that they should feel
honour-bound to resign, if they
abuse their positions of power,
using them for personal gain.
. ^1 .bgfieve tn#t; people whose
business interests, (public and   \.
private) are directly involved
with the mandate of govern- •
ment should either divest
themselves and their families of
those interests or be considered .
ineligible for office.
I'm not so naive as to think
such rules will automatically
prevent abuse of power nor bring us overnight into a state of -
grace in which everyone seeks,
the common good. But it was '
^because of recognition of,the.
•• short-comings of human',
nature that such rules used to be
accepted procedure in our.
system. It seems to me that
quite ^ apart, from the, moral
issue that political expediency
. is. a dicey, instrument, with a
strong tendency to boomerang
and invariably results in a loss
.of credibility. We must ask ^
always which hat is being wbnv;,
that Qf good government;   "
politick!.expendiency or even"' ;'
personal gain, and that is^a ';
sorry reflection, on our society v. j
and our values.   ,   ;-.;    ' X.'A>x.rx
We have a situation in the.:
regional district how in which
. the voting system can be abused '
giving the representatives pf thjft.
larger areas the power to im-:.y
pose their wishes on. the.
. residents of the smaller ones.
We need to look very carefully
at all those who run for office. \"
Do they adhere strictly,to :a.;.X
nigral code, or do they believe..^
in' "political expediency''?. Are,^-.^
£tliey"prinjiarily concerned.V*^ >B
power Jfor. .themselves, ors.do: >n
they understand their respon-; {>c
sibility to the common good?, '■   "'
If you are only offered a
choice of "bad or worse" why
not run yourself?    ,
"To find the mind Of the
Lord"...this phrase will guide
the decision-making of the new
13 member Parish council of
'the Anglican churches of St.
Aidan and St. Bartholomew. A
majority vote will no longer
"determine policy but the
demanding  challenge  of
reaching unanimous approval
will shape the parish's future.
The Anglicans' response to
what we believe .God is calling
us to do in the '80's is embodied
in "AnglicansMn Mission". It
is an extraordinary programme
of spiritual'renewal and financial develpment that started in
1982 and will reach its final
.: phase   this   March.   The
' Anglican - church of Canada
hopes to raise $40 million over a
five year period. The allocation
of funds is as follows: $9
million   for   missions   in
Canada's vast north; $5 million
for pension support for clergy
who retired before the benefits
of Canada Pension; $6 million.
for world missions, and $20
t million for missions in. the
.dioceses. Inflation, social
■ unrest, and other factors combine to place tremendous barriers in our path. Now is the
time we must' take, action to
assure that we do not. falter in
our Christian responsibility.
World Day
of Prayfcf
'■' The^ 1983 World Day of
Prayer Service was prepared by
a group of Christian women in
the Caribbean. Their theme is: •
"Nevyr Persons in Christ: a call
to worship!"
They point out that their
island-nations .have been blessed by sun, sand and sea, but
that at-times they are overwhelmed by their problems of
poverty and hardships. Their
churches, struggle to continue
the ministry to body, spirit and
mind.^They^ask people around
the world to join them in praying that they and(others will be "
maturity -': as new persons in '
. The service will be held on
Friday, March 4 at 1:30 p.m. at
St. Mary's Catholic Church in

Utility fees  cause problems  The recommendations of the  Public Utilities Committee of  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District were given official,  board approval at last Thursday's regional board.  ���"'-.���The PUC recommended that  the matter of money owed the  board  by Mr.   Ed Traff  reported last week be finalized  and that Mr. Traff be given two  weeks to pay the money he owes  for a water connection fee.  : In another recommendation  on water connection fees, the  board denied the requests of  J:.S.   Hartley   and   G.M.  Saunders for a reduction in  fees. Mr. Fowler's application  was to be investigated further  by the works superintendent. A  request from the Sechelt Indian  Band for a reduction in fee  rates was turned down with the  pand being advised that "the  Connection fee of $1,500 per  registered lot must stand for all  parties".  ; A further recommendation  concerning negotiations between the SCRD arid the Sechelt  Indian Band on the proposed  Indian Band hook-up to the  SCRD sewer system was also  accepted by the board. This  recommendation outlined the  concerns of the Public Utilities  Committee regarding the  hook-up and include: the need  to have the village of Sechelt as  a signatory on any agreement;  that the right-of-way along the  foreshore to White Isle be  agreed to; a clear statement of  the capacity the band can except for its $364,500 capacity  purchase fee; and an agreement  on maintenance of facilities on  band lands.  PUC chairman Jon McRae  also expressed his disappointment that the Sechelt Indian  Band has chosen not to participate as a member of the  Public Utilities Committee. In  response to a letter from the  band council declining the  board's invitation to join the  PUC, the board decided to  write a letter to the band explaining why it would be in the  band's interest to participate.  The application fr6m Mr.  Colin Beach to lease foreshore  in Hotham Sound for a proposed project to export fresh water  from Freil Creek came in for  harsh criticism from the environment conscious directors  of the Sunshine Coast Regional  District last week.  The     directors     were  EBP  Boohsiore  Lower  Gibsons'  886-7744  unanimous in suggesting a letter be sent to the Ministry of  Lands, Parks and Housing requesting that the application  not be granted: The directors  expressed the opinion that Mr.  Beach has a good idea, but he  has the wrong location.  The Beach proposal calls for  the construction of a dam,'  seven feet high and 30 feet long  at the outfall of Freil Lake; the  construction of a concrete catchment basin at the foot of the  falls, 150 feet above sea level;  installation of a 30 inch  penstock for loading water;  and the placement of a floating  concrete docking facility, 128  feet long and 12 feet wide which  could be used by recreational  boaters when ships are not being loaded.

For Information 8t Prices ank for  Stove or K��a at:  /  k;  BUILDING  SUPPLIES-  Francis Peninsula Place  883-9551 -Hwy. 101  A report on the procedures  followed in the controversial  "downzoning" by-la\y proposals in Areas B and E was  presented by regional board  director Ian Vaughan-at last  Thursday's Sunshine Coast  Regional District board  meeting.  The report, requested by the  board following complaints by  residents in both areas that  some board members had not  supported citizen's requests on  the re-zoning matter, was  prepared by Vaughan with the  assistance of Area C director  Jon McRae.  The Vaughan report cited  poor documentation of public  hearings, the lack of dates and  recommendations on the matter, changes in maps with no  apparent documentary support, and poor notification to  residents despite $3,500 spent  at the board's request to advertise the public hearing iiMhe  Vancouver Sun.   -  Vaughan's report supported  the board's decision to defeat  the by-laws, which would have  seen designated properties'in  Areas B and E changed in terms  of minimum lot sizes from  quarter acre to third acre in  Area E and from third acre to  half acre in Area B.- The report  concludes that, "In view of this  (apparent opposition- to the ,  larger lot sizes at the October -  22, 1981 public hearing) and  that the director who supported  this by-law was defeated at the  polls and that the present director who was vocally against the "  by-law was elected,...I feel the  board,acted correctly in  defeating the by-law.'';;.- > <-<  Subsequent investigation by .  "Dust" fall  mysterious  Reports of mysterious  "pinky peach coloured" dust  in the Gower Point, Pratt Roati  and Roberts Creek area have  been received by the- Coast  News this week. Resembling "a  mini dust-storrn" when seen in .  a spotlight at night, the dust has .  covered cars at the Golf couftel.  Residents have sent samples  to the Ministry af Environment  Laboratory and to the Waste1  Management Branch: Suggestions of its source have ranged'  from Mt. St. Helens to Port'  Mellon to Gibsons Ready Mix.-  A spokesman for the Forest-  Service suggests that the dust is1-  alder pollen and the Health"  Branch agrees with this. The  trees are coming out unusually  early this year because of the  exceptionally mild winter.  Another harbinger of Spring  is the sighting of what may be  the Coast's first hummingbird  of the season. It was spotted in  Pender, Harbour on February  27 by Margaret Causey. .  the Coast News has revealed  that directors Vaughan and  . McRae neglected to review logbooks of dates and recommendations of-the correspondence  and public hearings dating  back to June, 1979. Furthermore, staff available during the  one-day research of documents  were not consulted about the  matter or about relevant documentation.. .  The report's first two recom-.  mendations: to instruct staff  not to advertise in the Vancouver Sun or Province; and to  require unanimous approval of  all downzoning by-laws; were  defeated by board members. A  third recommendation, to have1  the board consider changes- in  by-law procedures to correct  the system was accepted.  During debate on the report,  director McRae made it clear,  how he stood on the issue when!  he said "downzoning is expropriation without compensation".''
