ing of the harbour should be firtished in the next few weeks and
then a second breakwater will be built.

Conference sees hopeful signs
by John Burnside
A heady mixture of self-help
possibilities and,the availability of
a new source of fuel was served up
to thfe business men and elected
representatives present at a meeting
and dinner organized by Economic
Commissioner Oddvin Vedo and
Helen Home and attended by
residents of Powell River and the
Sunshine Coast in the Driftwood
Inn' in Sechelt last Thursday,
Pecernber I."
"They faced the same problems
'that we are now facing twenty-
.years ago," said Vedo. "Too many
fishermen and too few fishV
"*- In the twenty, years since cooperative  mariculture   has' been
practised in Norway thousands of
tons of farm fish are exported annually. Much of it goes tb Seattle
and some of it finds its way back to
' Granville Island.' By contrast the
fledgling B.C. mariculturists produce only a few hundred tons of
produce for domestic markets.
"This is an extremely viable pro-'
position,1' said Burns: "In production it could mean two hundred
and fifty jobs locally. And since;
what will be produced will be fertilizer and industrial chemicals with"
a lime and magnesium.base, the,
products will not be subject to major market swings. In other words
what we are talking about here is
, steady employment-for'a major
portion of our young people on an
ongoing basis." \,,     >
The other major presentation
. \
Development -Society kicked off
the fiitl agenda with a run-down of
the plains of>his society to form an
investment group with start-up
federal funds to be known as the
Sunshine Coast Investments Ltd.
Tomkjes gave a characteristically
forceful outline of the success of
the pioneer group in Nanaimo.
"Creating jobs this way," said
Tomkies, "costs approximately
$9,000 per. permanent job. The
feds icnow that their usual job-
creating programs use up $90,000
in taxpayers' funds for every job
According to Tomkies the
federal government is eagerly
' awaiting the application for startup funds. "We are leading the province behind Nanaimo," said
Tomkies, "and I have no doubt
that our investment corporation,
which is profit-making, will be
creating jobs on the Sunshine
Coast by next fall."
The - next speaker was newly-
elected Mayor Colin Palmer of
Powell River. Palmer briefly urged
co-operation between the two
halves of the Sunshine Coast in
matters of tourism and transportation.
Stan Anderson of the local Expo
'86 committee gave an update on
the strategyr of his committee.
Anderson pointed to the fact that
_ with millions of tourists expected
uf the Vancouver area by 1986, the
- most.that the Sunshine Coast could
muster in the way .of hospitality accommodation was 400 beds.
Anderson stressed that more must
be done if we are to be prepared
for a likely tourist onslaught.
The main enthusiasm of the
meeting was perhaps generated by
presentations made on mariculture
by Wally Hretchka of the Powell
River Economic Development
Commission and Oddvin Vedo.
Hretchka had recently visited
Taiwan and returned with a startup million dollar investment in
'oysters for the Powell River area.
He told the assembled that his
Taiwanese connection had made it
clear that thirty acres of oysters
wduld provide seventy-five permanent jobs and a million and a half
dollars of realised capital for the $1
million investment in just ten months.
"The markets are waiting in
Hong Kong and Japan for the product," said Hretchka, "and what
we have to do is to go out there and
get the investment capital."
Economic Commissioner Oddvin Vedo had recently visited Nor-
.way with a group of B.C.
mariculturists. Mariculture has
been practised in Norway for twenty years.

Work on the new Gibsons
marina is in full swing but the
marina hotel is on hold temporarily.
Last Friday members of Gibsons
town council and developers Art
McGuinness and Jon McRae went
aboard the large suction dredge
which is now a feature of Gibsons
Under dredgemaster Bill
Hamilton of Coquitlam, who has
been dredging up and down the
B.C. Coast since 1956, the giant
dredge—"It's 750. tons," said
Hamilton in response to a question, "but you measure suction
dredges by their pipe. This is a
26-inch dredge."—swings on an
arc of 40 metres at a 45 degree
angle dredging three metres below
zero water to maintain a deepening
of 2.5 metres.
Hamilton told the visitors that
the dredging was going extremely
smoothly and that it should be
finished in a matter of three weeks.
The dredged material is being
relocated below the bluff at a
depth of one metre. When the
relocation is complete eel grass will
be planted there for the spawn of
the herring run.
Meanwhile, local contractor Ken
Fiedler is accumulating the rock
for the second rock breakwater.
The rock is being acquired near the
L & K booming grounds utilizing
all local labour. \"'

McGuinness and McRae, . principals in the Gibsons Marina Hpjel

The chill in the air could not
contend with the warm pride in the
- hearts of those who gathered to
join in the official grand openingof
the Shorncliffe Intermediate Care
Facility in Sechelt on Wednesday,
November 30.
The 50-bed intermediate care
facility has a warm and friendly
. ambience. Those who live there,
whose home it has. become, are
senior citizens who need a little
help during their daily round and
in Shorncliffe they have a residence
in which it is easy to feel comfortable.
Vice-president of, the Sechelt Intermediate   Care   Society,   John
' Lewis, served as master of
ceremonies during opening
ceremonies. Lewis^ is the retired
physiotherapist -at St. Mary's
Hospital. The opening prayers of
dedication were offered by
Reverend John Paetkau.
The speakers who stepped up to
the microphone after the selection
of songs by the Sechelt Elementary •
School Choir under the direction
of their teacher Rae Ellingham,
paid tribute to the foresight and
dedication of the citizens who conceived the idea and brought it to
The first interim intermediate
care board was comprised of Gordon Hall, Jean Todd, Bill Cormack, Dave Doig, Marie Montgomery, and Peggy Connors.
They formed the society and got
the project underway.
Audrey Jost served as president
on the first elected board. With her
on the board were Margaret Gem-
mell, Bill Cormack, John Lewis,
and Jack MacLeod.
"We weren't accustomed, none
of us, .to dealing with a mortgage
of over .$2 million," said John
Lewis. "But we hung tough and
saw it through."
Tribute was paid to the firm of
architects, Paul Smith Associates,
with their representative Michael
Weller, who was also involved in
the design of St.- Mary's Hospital.
Jack MacLeod supervised the landscaping work and the Sunshine
Coast Regional District provided

Killer cougar shot
The large male cougar
suspected of prowling the area
between Pender- Harbour and
Lord Jim's Lodge, has been shot
by . conservation officer Jamie
The cougar, which Stephen said
is one of the largest he has seen,
was estimated to be nine years oid
and 165 pounds. He was spotted
- at various times over the past six
weeks and has been tracked on
other occasions.
On Tuesday night of last week,
the cougar was spotted on the
road near Lord Jim's Lodge and
on the same evening one of the
owners of the lodge had a goat
killed on the property.
The conservation officer called
in the tracking hounds from Abbotsford on Wednesday and after
an extensive search through the
dense underbrush, the cougar was
treed  about   half a mile  from
where it had been seen the night
Because pf the dense underbrush and rough terrain,' the
cougar had to be killed rather than
Stephen told the Coast News
that the probability that this was
the same animal spotted last
month by a Pender Harbour boy,
is "very high". "The cougar exhibited the same habits as the one
seen in Pender Harbour and is the
same size as reported. It's not
unusual for a cougar to cover that
much territory," said Stephen.
The conservation officer also
said that it is always wise to be
cautious in the woods. Cougars
are known to have attacked
human beings as was the case in
Langdale this summer when a
cougar attacked a young man.
The cougar was taken to Abbotsford where the pelt will be

BCLTCA SOOk On. * --.lohnRurnsidrphj.lo: v;2. Coast News, December5,1983  < I'XX  'fit  n  *',  r. *  Let us leave for a moment consideration of our Prime -  Minister's peace initiative. Suffice to say that anyone anywhere,  who is talking about peace these days has to be cheered on and  we so cheer Pierre Trudeau.  Let us consider the likely outcome of the next election. Gallup  poll after gallup poll assures us .that the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada has a commanding lead and looks like a  shoo-in to become the next-govenung'p^yVpf.Canada,>';::'.';;.v  This despite the fact that the few things they do say about  policy are far from reassuring. The Progressive Conservatives  under Brian Mulroney will apparently take us even deeper into  the orbit of the giant to the southfcThelr spokesman on international affairs is a hawk and the "v/hole party seems to have the  same unreasoning and virulent attitude towards the Russians  which inform, if such a word can be used, the actions of Ronald-  Reagan. ' ��� yX  Combine all this with the likelihood that the Tories will  reverse government policy on Petrocan although indications are  that Canadians generally like the idea of owning a little piece of  their own action.  We submit that in matters economic and.international the  Progressive Conservative Party of Canada is a backward looking and ill-tempered bunch of opportunists whose closest approach to a unifying policy is their rabid aversion' to the metric  system of measurement.  Yet, they will sweep to power in the next election. Why? We  submit that we are about to see the reverse side of the coin of  Trudeaumania. The mindlessness that swept Trudeau into-  power in 1968 is about to be matched by an equal mindlessness  which will sweep him from power. Our next government will in  all likelihood be a government bereft of stature, understanding,  or insight and with a commanding huge majority in Ottawa.  That mindless horde in government, there by grace Of a reaction  against Pierre Trudeau, wiirbe our Prime Minister's final legacy  to his country. It is to weep.     <  Pettiness  The silly little storm created by the provincial government  over the three days lost by the recent teachers' walkout is a  classic example of idiotic management techniques. Just when  peace seems achievable, the' Minister of Education chooses to  muddy the waters with some more of the patented bullying we  have come to expect from his government.  The point has been made often enough that students lost,  twice as many days last year at the government's behest. It is  also true that we are aware of educational situations where the  B.C. curriculum is successfully taught in this province between  October and March.  There is nothing magical about 188 days. Good education  needs a positive and constructive environment more than it  needs a set number of days. Heinrich's stupidity means that  the assault on education and teachers is to continue and that is',  an assault on the kind Of environment children need iri order to  learn.     ..;'���'. /'::'. ��� ���'.������,.

I'd better begin by trying to define democracy as I  understand it, as it would seem we  may have a basic difference here.  For me democracy is a great deal  more than Ja system of'government  which; allows forjfree elections and  theriifor the majority to govern.  The democratic system surely  espouses.7 -a-y number   of   other  freedoms including the right of  peaceful protest. or civil disobedience.; Isn?t this a basic freedom  upon which weV pride ourselves? A  distinction we make between, our  western     democracies    and  totalitarian states which do not  allow their people to dissent.? Isn'tX  this why we honour the Polish  Solidarity. movement in that.;, they  are fighting for this freedom which  we value and which they do. not  have"? It strikes me as odd that we  can- approve   of  such   minority  movements iri other countries while  criticizing similar actions at home..  North America started out with  very high ideals about the rights of  the'individual to .life, and liberty  etc. Many of the founding groups  had   come  to  the   New  World  because the governments of their  countries of origin did not allow  them    freedom   'of   conscience.

They "were a  motley crowd of foreign  mercenaries who claimed to have  the highest of moral and religious  motives. They were really a bunch  of thieves and murderers.  The ancient ruins of the.  Crusaders aire probably still there.  In the time I sayv them they were  just run down'reminders that the  foreigners that went to Lebanon  . didn't last long and mostly got killed for their trouble.  These days I suspect those  monuments have taken on a more  ironic cast. This latest generation  of crusaders���Italian, French,  American, Syrian, Israeli,. must  Iook; at these symbols of ancient  greed and wonder about how  things can change so little.  I wonder, if a thousand. years  from now, some foreign traveller  will look upon the ruins of ancient  barracks.and think about how  stupid and futile it is for people to  involve themselves in the affairs of  middle east states.  I entered Lebanon from Egypt,  an equally ancient' and troubled  state. One of my travelling companions, a young Frenchman from  Marseilles, was on the boat with a  car he hoped to sell in Lebanon.  He seemed a fairly decent fellow,  aiboutthe same age. as me. He told  me his. father was a lawyer in  Marseilles. I later found but that  the" lawyer-father was a prominent  defence lawyer who specialized in.  defending some well-known  'criminal interests in southern  France.V';.. ;* XxX'  7 When we arrived in Beirut, the  arid Parliament and often jailed for  their actions.  In fact there wouldn't be; a  .���'��� United States of America' if ;it;  hadn't, been for a bunch of  dissidents who,; rather than pay  what they considered an unjust tax  to the English, committed an act bf  civil disobedience; and dumped all  that tea into Boston harbour. '.  It's Interesting too isn't it, how  yesterday's dissidents become today's'heroes. Men like Galileo,  Luther, Gandhi, Martin Luther  King, Monachem Begin and of  course George Washington. I  would make a distinction between  those whose civil disobedience was  peaceful and those who used force  to support their cause. I think my  correspondent; and I would agree  on this and that what concerns him  is the inherent possibility that civil  disobedience might lead to open  rebellion. That concerns me too  and I would put the onus on the  Government to see that that  doesn't happen, remembering that.  Canadians, being a peaceful, law-  abiding people do not resort to  violence unless they are driven to it  by frustration and injustice.  More thoughts on this subject  next week.  Frenchman, an English kid,  myself, and my wife, decided to get  a hotel suite, together. I guess we  were just sticking together as  foreigners will in another country.  The Frenchman was particularly  anxious.that his car was safe. We  stayed around the harbour for  several hours until it had been  carefully unloaded and had been  passed through customs; In the end  ihe' authorities said that the car  would have to stay in the customs  compound for 24 hours before it  could be, released;; maybe they  wanted a payoff���a tradition in  that part of the world.  We found a hotel, with a suite  cheap enough but large enough for  us all. We ended up staying in  . Beirut for a week. We were lucky  enough to meet many very kind  and' hospitable people, mostly  Moslems,.who took care of us and  showed us around the countryside.  There were the refugee' camps,  the tin-roofed villages of Palestinian refugees. Even then, in, 1967,  they had been there long enough to  have been well into a generation of  children who had known no other  home.  But generally speaking, except  for the camps, Beirut was a prosperous place.  After a week, my wife and I left  for Amman, Jordan, a fairly  straight forward bus ride through  what ,is the Bekka Valley, where  daily how, foreign airforces drop  bombs on other foreigners.  After we'd been in Amman for a  few days, we received aletter from  the English kicL He tolidVtis the  Frenchman had been arrested for  smuggling guns.. It seems the car  was packed with firearms concealed in the doors. Apparently the  customs people had released the  vehicle and then had followed the  Frenchman for severaliidays���  presumably while we were sharing  the suite.

I wonder first how easy it  is to get involved in some terrible  crime. I used to think it was exciting���being in a hotel room with  an international gun .runner. I  don't think so anymore.: i; -  It's hard not to think; about  how, all those years ago, some kid  from France tried to make a few  bucks smuggling guns and; ended  up, presumably^; in jstil; and^how  now foreign governments can bring  billion-dollir fleets off the^cbast,,  bring deadly missiles onto the land,  and fly over with aircraft of ���  massively destructive firepower,  and be called 'peace, keepers!.  Lebanon, at least according to  television newscasts, .is a  wasteland. It's a country run by  bandits who fight one another with  weapons supplied by some: Of the  most powerful nations on earth.  It would be better if the twentieth century crusaders could learn  the lessons of the ancient  crusaders, that there is nothing in  Lebanon but defeat and death. --Jj��>* ;��'-\r^-* ^^-V i  *?-'*>iil-z>+**  -*PV '.rtrtljr-* yi ��� ���'���&' ?-  Ws'��'-~*'*����\ ���5--p  i*^-y^.r--7T>^^>T~^^--"-^v. :*;."* ~-l>��'T:it>~-.;*/ .-v*'-��:-jr-*��-'  -:- . 7^ ���^r--J,"--<i' r-^-pr-.  Editor  In response to Ralph Daly's letter accusing me of conducting a  'misleading attack' ori Sunshine  Coast ��� Parents in my -letter,  November 21. '-.���.:'���  Just where did Mr. Daly get his  information? The. B.C. Supreme  Courtt most   certainly   did   not  Uphold the Government's opinion  that the teachers had no right tb  strike. It has had absolutely no say  in the teachers' (actually all education  workers') strike! The only  courts involved have been'the Pro-  vincial..Courts, iri.as much as some  of them dealt with School Boards'  requests for injunctions. Mr. Daly  tells 'us that   "finding  that  the  walkout   .was   illegal   the   (B.C.  Suprerne);. court ordered Victoria  teachers back to work'1'. The B.C.  /Provincial Court did not find that  I the' walkbut was illegal, they merely issued an injunction. Contrary  y\o .���'���.���"what v Mr.   Daly   apparently  -believes, a court does not have fo.  X find a party guilty, in order to serve  I an injunction. A judge fhay issue  * an injunction because, in his opi-  1 nion a party has broken the law,  I but his opinion is not his finding.  Provincial Court judges' opinions,  appear to have been mixed on this  particular issue.

Daly claims that the brief's  writers stated that the walkout was.  illegal because they had heard the  opinion of the Minister of Education that it was illegal "and he's a  lawyer".. Unfortunately, Mr. Daly  is probably right. For a start, an  opinion is just that. It is not a pro-  ���   ven  fact.  Secondly,' due to the  damage it would do to his career,  Heinrich could hardly be expected  .to'issue  the  opposite  opinion.  Thirdly, the B.C. Teachers Federation asked for the opinion of their  .-counsel   (and   they're   lawyers!).  That opinion was that it would  probably be found to be legal. It  would be damaging to the law  , firm, whatever their opinion, only  if they were wrong.  Mr. Daly accuses me of not saying that the B.C. Supreme (?)  Court specifically ruled that the  Ontario judgement does not apply  here. I apologize. ,1 thought that  was self-evident. Provincial Court  judgements, even those of a Provincial Suprerne Court, only apply  .��� in that Court's-province; However  the Canadian Charter of "Rights,  the basis for that judgement, does .  apply; here. v  The Ontario Supreme Court  . decision, although not applicable  in B.C., is nevertheless fair indication of what a B.C. court might  decide, because its decision would  be based on the same legal document, the Charter. Here-is an  abstract from their judgement: Mr.  Justice O'Leary; "...the right to  strike must also be aright included  in the expression 'freedom of expression', (which ; the Charter  guarantees) and L conclude that it ���  is". The other two judges concurred. Interestingly enough, one of  the three complainants was the Ontario Secondary School Teachers'  Federation. Contrast this with  Education Minister Heinrich's  legal opinion: "Only members of  trade unions organized under the  Labour Code have the right to  strike. The Labour Code does not .  apply  to teachers".  The BCTF  Rebuttal  Editor,  We are writing in connection  with an article which appeared in .  your publication on October- 17,  WM.^.x^r.xXryyy,    >:.;/'   :  The article* which was written by  the Solidarity Media Committee,  states that MacMillan Bloedel provides funding to the institute in the  amount of $200,000 annually.

Mr. Daly states that my saying  that three Provincial Court judges  favoured teachers in refusing injunctions carries no weight, ���  because I didn't say "what orders  were sought, refused, or the  reasons for judgement given by the  court". The injunctions sought  were back-to-work orders. I have  been told that they were refused  because in .the judges' opinions,  teachers had the legal right to leave  their jobs..  In response to my criticism of  the briefs implication that the.law  must- always he obeyed (because  ���   the  authors  mistakenly  believed:  that the illegality of the teachers'-  actions had been determined), Mr.  Daly   points   out   that   there \ is  nothing in Canadian Law recognizing  civil  disobedience.   1   didn't  mean to imply that there was, but  again, I took that to be self-evident  (although apparently it wasn't to  the powerline protesters Mr. Daly  mentioned), as by definition civil  disobedience requires a law to be  broken.

His ignorance of  unions is abysmal. If it were not.  for unions we would still be work- -  ing a 12 hour day with child  labour.  He apparently thinks it is okay  : for the establishment to raise prices  af any time. How many times have  you gone into a grocery store and   .  seen One. sticker raising prices on ���'.  top of another.  The union- contract is the  employer's guarantee of a fixed  labour cost for one, tow or three  years, depending on the length of  contract. Yet, the working man has  no such guarantee against rising  costs. Every obstacle is placed in  his way. Various laws govern his  contract. These, time consuming  laws must, be strictly adhered to,  yet when he observes all of these  and; goes' oh a legal strike, it is  usuallyf branded iljegal,.and exparte  injunctions are sought. He is hammered from pillar to post by the  media with hot lines and editors  screaming bloody murder. ,  Using the Goebels principal, if  you tell a big enough lie and keep,  repeating iu someone will, believe  you. One thing is sure, nothing has  value without labour. When the"  ' working man lays down his tools  (his only weapon) everything  grinds to a halt.: ,  Why shouldn't the working man ���-.,���  have the right to put a price on his  labour, the only commodity he has  to sell. The same as the grbcer has a  right to put a price on, a sack of  potatoes? Yet the; establishment  claims to have the right to put a  price on the articles they have to  sell, and also puts.a price on the  labour that produced it.  One thing sure,'-unjust laws are  only changed by .militant actions  .on the part of the people.  To the supporters of Solidarity  and the unions I have this message;  'Long Live Solidarity'.

St. Andrew's Church' has now
been well and truly consecrated in a
ceremony held last Sunday and attended by many, Pender Harbour
residents. The congregations have
worked steadily to bring St. Andrew's to its present debt-free
status and everyone is to be congratulated.
In more church news, an annual
Christmas tradition will once again
take place in the Harbour. The
Pender Harbour Pentecostal
Church and St. Andrew's Church
and their respective ministers will
,-hold the Pender Harbour Community Carol Service at 11:30
a.m., December 18, in the Madeira
Park Community Hall. It is so well
attended that neither church can
accommodate the whole group.
Several people have commented
to me on the passing of Celina
Wise. Although I did not know
Celina, the warmth that has been
expressed with each mention of
her, shows a picture of a very well-
liked woman, who more than 30
yeais ago began work at St. Mary's
Hospital, when it existed in what js,
now the Suridowner Inn. Blessings'
on her.

For years I've searched for a  Turkish Delight recipe that wasn't like glue and at last I've  found one���and if you find on the shelves a book called  "Visions of Sugar Plums", it's just full of delightful recipes  for this time of the year.  Turkish Delight  3 cups sugar I tablespoon rose water  1 Vi ciips water a few drops red colouring  3.tablespoons white corn syrup Icing sugar .  3 envelopes unflavowed gelatine % cup cornstarch  juice of i lemon :;.;v.. 7;/v5f:ciip wi*te��";  1. In a heavy saucepan heat the sugar and water to: 240�� F  (the soft ball stage). j ' ���  Blend the cornstarch with the hajf cup of water. Add a little of the hot syrup to it and then mix all the cornstarch  With ,the syrup. Simmer slowly until thick. Remove from  ��� heat.  Off the heat, whisk in the lemon juice and gelatine until  the gelatine has completely dissolved. The mixture will  look like wallpaper paste but don't worry!  4. Add the rose water and colouring.  5. Sprinkle a heavy layer of icing sugar (sifted) in the base of  an 8x8" pan and pour the mixture in. Place in a cool, dry  place���not the fridge, for 3-4 hours.  6. Sprinkle more sifted icing sugar over top and cut into  squares. Pull apart. The mixture resembles rubber���pink  rubber!

Sometimes it can Jead  you off on hitherto unsuspected  tangents that have only a marginal  connection with your original  quest. Such was the case when  Yvonne and I journeyed to Texada  Island for a strange meeting with a  most unusual man.  We first learned of Jack Bird's  existence from Amelia Wilson,  widow of Herbert Emerson  Wilson, the notorious King of the  Safecrackers, whose chequered  career we were then investigating  Amelia informed us that Bird had  been closely associated with her  husband in the late Fifties and early Sixties and perhaps knew a few  things about him that she did not  With this thought in mind, Yvonne  had written Jack Bird.on Texada,  requesting ah interview. Therevvvas  no reply. After several months'of  silence, we decided to head up  there, uninvited and take pur  chances on catching him at home.  Bird was over 80 but we hatllearn-  ed from a friend in the area that he  was still very much aliverWe" had  no idea what sort of reception'we  might receive. Amelia had had no  direct contact with him in years'but  advised us that, he was reclusive  and somewhat eccentric.

In the ipterirn, however,  the mines have closed dovifn and  the main community of .Vananda  looks like a metaphor for-the reces  sion, shabby,vfrayed around'the  -edges and sadly displaying ^several  boarded-up stores. After a- brief  reconnoitre, we head down island  to Gillies Bay where -Jack Bird  reportedly lives.      >.., -.  Finding his secluded ; refuge is  easier said thaftVdbnep We finally  get specific- directions from an  obliging man at the general store  and make our way to a brushy lot  on a back road. There is no visible  building; only the mouth of an .  enigmatic trail. Now we have actually pinpointed Jack Bird's  hideaway, we have a few momentary misgivings. WeVare about to  ; invade the prjyacy of a very private  man, blatantly unannounced. I  have paranoid visions of the d'>6r  being slammed in our faces. But we  have come too far to turn back  now.  We make our way along the  trail, sinisterly.lined with six-foot  high stinging nettles and the house  comes into view. It is a very curious  looking dwelling, flat-roofed, ramshackle, with an unfinished look  about it like something tacked  together by a hungover carpenter  on a bad Monday.; Featureless save  for .a door, a narrow porch iwith a  tree growing through it, and. a  small window, it resembles nothing  so much as an oversized packing,  crate.

Coast News, December5,1983  L  Joy Kogawa, author of "Obasan", answering questions from the  large audience which attended her reading at the'Arts Centre last  Week.        �� ���Judilh Wiluin pholo  Japanese Canadian  Book changes writer  by Judith Wilson  While the el feet of the novel  .'Obasan' on the Canadian  awareness of the treatment of  Japanese Canadians during World  War II has been profound, its effect on its author has been to  drastically alter her life. Joy  Kogawa, in an interview before she  gave a reading at the'Arts Centre  last Friday, described how the success of the book has "wrenched me  out ol my solitude and flung me into being involved".  Obasan, winner of the 1981  Books in Canada First Novel  Award and of the Canadian  Authors* Association 1982 Book  of jthe Year Award, movingly  describes the plight of Japanese  Canadians in Vancouver who were  removed from their homes and  forced into internment camps in  the lnienor during the Second  World War.  ��� Although Kogawa had always  functioned as a poet with a poet's  need for solitude and freedom, she  feels now she is not free to reject  the burden of the identity of the  Japanese Canadian. She describes  the "horrible sense ol responsibility" she teels especially to the old  ones���the lssei who suffered most  when all their possessions were,  confiscated'in rtie'early .940Vand  Ihev were "flung into isolation".  '/'I am in danger of becoming a  maniac now; I have to watch  myself," she said, "writing is so  hard now." She feels she is not  "tough enough, not emotionally  equipped ~.!or political action"  which ^"scars and encrusts a person". .'*  Kogawa describes how within  her the acuteness of emotion and  tenderness neededvfor poetry has  been encrusted over, like a dry  river bed. "I must go back along  the river bed and up into the  mountains to hnd where my heart  lies encrusted beneath the glacier."  The difficulties of coping with  Beer  Wine Licensed  Espresso Bar  Friday, Dec. 9  Saturday, Dec. 10  Hear  Folk Singer - Guitarist  Judith Scott  TEREDO SQUARE, SECHELT  865-9962  the personal conflict between  poetry and politics have so far  prevented Kogawa from making  any public statements but she is at  present preparing a major speech  to be presented next week in Ottawa at the Canadian Caucus of  Human Rights. "I have become  Aunt Emily," she said, referring to  a central character in Obasan who  is a political activist for the  Japanese Canadian cause and who  has now "invaded my life".    "*  Kogawa did no conscious  research on Obasan until the very  end, letting it spring from "dreams  and synchronicity". In her poetry  she felt she had reached a dead end  and was searching for a new direction. She dreamed she had to work  in the archives in Ottawa and so  she went there. By chance she was  given the letters of Muriel  Kitagawa who became Aunt Emily, the activist in the book.  As she began to read the letters  she came upon reference to Alderman Wilson of Vancouver who  was strongly anti-Japanese. She  s had no idea who he was but that  day happened to begin a conversation in the library with a woman  whom she did not know. The  woman was from Victoria and was  doing'research on Wilson. She was  able to tell Kogawa all about him.  "I was not'writing the, book by  myself," she said. Obasan is based  on many of her own experiences as  a child and on the experiences of  her family and the Japanese Canadian community of Vancouver as  they were treated like enemy aliens  in their own country. At the  reading she described what it was  like to be part of a visible minority  who were loyal Canadians but  whose rights were denied. "No  Japanese Canadian was ever accused of espionage, let alone condemned" she said.  The selections she chose to read  from Obasan at the Arts Centre  reflect her own philosophy which is  one of optimism in spite of the horrors 'which must be protested.  While the prologue is a seeking for  answers from the universe about  the nature of a humanity which can  cause Hiroshima and Auschwitz,  an incident on the train taking the  evacuees to,the Interior illustrates  Kogawa's*50Iution: '"One must attend to the invisible voice with acts  of practical compassion "���"she'" explained before she read the passage^.,,  describing how the old grand- *"v  mother' sacrificed her clean petticoats to make diapers for a newborn baby.  She feels that the ramifications  of the kind of compassion which  allows attention to one suffering  person give "tremendous hope"  for mankind.  x i  '���?*J>'  ^  ���"���W^^  ��� ��  II  fv  I  Friday &  Saturday  Dec. 9th & l��th  "KNIGHT  \W  i  SHIFT  ����  u>mi  In the Lounge  From Coast writers  Available at  by Marion St. Denis  "...very happy to be a part of  it."  "...pleased to be published in  this anthology."  "...astounded to have been  chosen."  These were the comments of  some of the authors of "Sparks  from the Forge", the anthology  produced by the Suncoast Writers'  Forge.  Gwen Southin, who has always  wanted to write-but has never had  time till now, is thrilled to be  published, in "Sparks". "I always  see the funny side of situations and  have lots of ideas for stories saved  up." Her work is fiction based on  personal experience and gently  reveals the humour inherent in  even the most disastrous situations.  Zoe Langdale is a professional  who writes non-fiction^ fiction;and  poetry. "Harvest of Salmon",  published in 1976, is the story of  her experience as a commercial  fisherman. She has just finished a  children's book, "...sort of  mythological adventure that was  great fun to write and I've spent a  lot of time on it���two years working solidly." Though fiction, it too  is based on her fishing experiences.  Her poetry chosen for "Sparks" is  a fine and sensitive treatment of  subjects, well-known to Coast  readers.  Vince Bracewell who , appear s  ; regularly as Chak-chak in , the  Coast News, writes non-fiction as  his interests lie .with natural  history, archaeology, anthropology and sociology. He  claims "...stories and situations  from reality are "often more interesting and entertaining than fiction."      v  Of "Sparks from the Forge",  Bracewell says, "Being chosen by  Jan deBruyn (contest adjudicator)  adds greatly to our individual  achievement' as writers."  Of the Writers' Forge he said, " I  feel that the Forge is contributi'^ ?  great deal to the community as it is  providing an outlet that other communities don't have" and also "the  great success of the Festival of the  Written Arts last summer publicized and brought recognition to the  Coast as an interesting place to live  and visit. I think the Forge deserves  community support."  "Sparks from the Forge" is now  at The Bookstore (Cowrie Street).

But  -When partners Mickey Madill and  <|<foonna   Ball   saw   businesses   in  Slower Gibsons closing all around  T^hem, that's the way they saw it.  '    Nevertheless, these enterprising  yoinen saw a.need, that had to be  ^filled and they started a business in  ;ower Gibsons. Wishful Thinking,  the Marine Block in Lower Gib-  ___. ...features , pet-grooming,  'animal supplies, deluxe bird seed,  plants, gifts and cards.  The main draw, since the store  opened on November 12, has, been  jfeepJog-grooming of Joy;Walkey,  ^formerly of Walkey Kennels.'Joy's  f reputation and experience have at-  \ traded many new customers to the  ? shop/In the pre-CHristrnas season,  | Joy groonis'as many as 12-15 dogs  I a day and the demand is growing.  \    Wishful  Thinking  really  grew  5nut of theadjacent thrift shop/The  Cat's Whiskers. Mickey worked in  your pet  the thrift shop and realized that the  -location provided, a" good opportunity for a more profitable enterprise. She also is in love with  Lower Gibsons arid feels a commitment to keep the lower town alive.'  The new shop attracts customers  from as far away as Egmont. As  Mickey pointed out,' "Many people from Pender Harbour and.  Sechelt prefer shopping in Gibsons, and if they come down' and  make a dayof it, they often drop  their pets off here to be groomed."  -Mickey and Donna shop carefully in Vancouver and have found  that with the right wholesalers,  they can provide merchandise here  at- Vancouver prices, even plants  and animal supplies'.  Wishful Thinking is now featuring Christmas items, including  poinsettas and a variety of holiday  plants,. and Christmas treats for  pets. The store is open from 9:30  a.m. to 5:30 p.m., .Mondays  through Saturday. For grooming  appointments phone 886-3812.  The hidden benefits that ICB��  brings to the provincial economy  were identified by Insurance'Corporation President Tom Holmes,  addressing   a   group   of   Lower  Mainland businessmen and community leaders recently. :  Speaking  to  the  North   Van-  .  couver Chamber of Commerce,in  his first public address ;sihce tlie  corporation moved its head office  to Lonsdate Quay, Holmes Outlined the role of ICBC arid the financial advantages, of an organization  that is "B:C. bases, B.C. nurtured  and B.C. controllled".          vv   '  Noting   that   "there   is   sortie  legitimate concern" over the future  of the corporation, Holmes stated:  "Our operation is for the benefit-  of B.C. - not Toronto, Montreal},  Hartford, New York or even London. Last year our $112 million investment   earnings   lopped ��� an  average of $61 off every motorist's  policy.

Last year, private insurers would  have  needed $883  million- from  motorists to meet BX. claims costs  of $670 million.

Sechelt (Next to the Book Store)  Roses for teachers  Editor, '   '   r  Please deliver forty-eight fresh  red roses for me to Gibsons  Elementary School- a dozen to  each of the four teachers who have  one of my children in their class.  Recently I received four report  cards. It was evident that hours of  work culminated in those  assessments. In case I should have  any questions, an interview was offered.  I asked for four.  In respect of my busy schedule,  my appointments were convenient-.  fy set up in sequence on one afternoon. Each teacher was well  prepared with current information  on my child, his strengths and.  weaknesses both academically and  socially.  When I walk into my children's  school, I feel welcome. I do that  regularly to keep abreast with what  is happening. I have been'impressed with .the calibre of caring evident by each teacher for each  child's needs.  My family has lived in four other  school districts, so I have a wide  range of schools from which to  make my judgment. I have to rate  Gibsons at the top.  Enjoy the roses, Susan, Nancy,  Sara and Kathy.   You've earned:  them.  Nancy Robson  Help for tlie blind  Editor,  Christmas approaches quickly  but many destitute people will not  see  Christmas  this year simply  because they are blind! Do you  siknow that thousands of destitute  ���< blind people, can have their sight  restored by a simple 10 minute  cataract   operation   costing   no  more than $20? But only if we  ' care about their suffering.  Christian Blind Mission can  turn $20 into new eyesight. Twenty dollars pays for the cataract  surgery, hospitalization and  cataract glasses. Nowhere can  more   be   done   for   less!  Christian Blind Mission has  worked with and for the blind  since 1908 and in the last .12 months gave the gift of sight to  105,960 destitute blind people in  91 of the poorest countries. Think  of that, 105,960 blind people now  able to see because we cared  enough to help them.  ' On top of all these sight restoring cataracf operations, Christian  Blind Mission saved hundreds of  thousands of destitute people  from going blind. Altogether,  CBM gave medical and surgical  help to 2,111,232 poor people  through CBM eye surgeons^ doc-  Wakefield  facility  tors and. nurses. CBM also  dispensed 146,000 pairs of glasses  to people who desperately needed  glasses to see properly.

The season's first game, held last  Tuesday, saw a big, fast Elphi team  dominate play "in their own gym, to  register a 80-59 victory.   r  Elphinstone, which has traditionally played a fast, physical and  fundamental style, used superior;  team speed, domination of the>\  backboards and accurate shooting  to control the smaller,; slicker  Chatelech team.  Joel McKown was particularly  effective for Elphinstone. -He  demonstrated excellent ball handl-  Eagles second  ing and outside shooting for the  winners.  Chatelech showed some stylish  early season form, but were unable  to stop the straight ahead game  plan of Elphinstone.  The'key to the Elphi win was the  strong rebounding of ,Dick  Lansdell and Randy Maclean, who  scored 24 and 17 points respectively. Joel Mackown added 15 points  and Steve- Partridge 14.'

INSURANCE  OF BRITISH OOUiMBW mm  by, Maryanne West  Madeira Park Elementary  School is one of 25 schools in the  province to win a 1983 award for  traffic safety. The Insurance Company of B.C., besides looking after  accident claims, etc., has a Counter  Attack Programme aimed at raising the public consciousness on  matters of highway safety which  works with schools and organizations.  At Madeira Park School the  principal, Ken Wohlberg, staff and  students, wholeheartedly espoused  the cause of promoting the use of  seat belts. They had a poster contest and displayed the winning  posters in the school and community; a safety week led up to a  safety day in which aspects of  highway safety became a focal part  of language arts, math, music,  games, etc.  Ted Robert's grade 6/7 class  made a survey of residents arriving  at the mall and "ticketed" with a  reminder,   those  who  were  not  buckled up. The students representing the cartoon characters in Captain Klickr entered a float in the  May Day parade and the annual  Open Day was yet another occasion on which to get the message  across. Surely by now, no one in  Madeira Park would think of starting a car without first buckling  up!  Everyone had fun and Mrs.  Gwen Struthers, chairman of the  Buckle-up Committee, kept a  photographic record of all the  school's projects and enclosed  these pictures with the documentation in entering the award.  Last week principal Wetmore  was delighted to receive a cheque  for $500 from the Lottery Fund  and a plaque commemorating the  efforts of the 25 schools. The  money will go towards the planned  adventure playground as the student's contribution and it is hoped  that other community organizations will be inspired to match the  donation. Congratulations to  Madeira Park Elementary School.  news  GIBSONS RCMP  On the 25th: A routine check by  police resulted in charges of impaired driving being laid against  Gibsons man Kenneth Richard  Harrison; Harrison was apprehended on Shaw Road.
