Ferries, Don  Lockstead, (MLA Mackenzie),  said last week that the announced ferry hike reflects the  deliberate design of the Socred  cabinet to impose a hidden tax  increase on the people of  British Columbia.  Lockstead said NDP  members .. predicted these increases when the government  severely cut ferry corporation  funding in the 1982-83 budget.  At that time, the government  cut $15.9 million or 25 per cent  of the ferry corporation funding.  Lockstead said the fare increases reflect a decision by the  Socred cabinet to withdraw  normal highway subsidies from  the ferry system. Previously,  ferries were funded according  to the same cost per vehicle as  the regular highway system.  "Now, with the $15.9  million  cutback,  these funds  must be made up. Already,  severe cuts in scheduled runs  and lay-offs of auxiliary staff  have been affected. The bottom, line is that these cutbacks  are not enough; the ferry rates  are going up."  He accused the government  of taking "a cheap political  route" by cutting subsidies to  residents of remote locations.  Lockstead noted the cost increase to Sunshine Coast, northern and Gulf Island  residents. Basic fare hikes of up  to 25 per cent are imposed in  these areas, which will compound as high as 36 per cent  with the withdrawal of  residents cards.  The impact on residents in  these areas will be severe, but  the impact on their tourist industries will be devastating.  Lockstead said he is completely fed up with the sanctimonious preaching which  comes from the Bill Bennett  cabinet. Workers in the public  and private sector are accepting  zero per cent wage increases  while the government slams on  ferry hikes of six, eight, 25 and  36 per cent.  "It shows that most working  people are practising  economies ancfliving within the  reality of working towards  recovery. The cabinet, on the  other hand, travels the world at  the taxpayers' expense and  thinks nothing of grabbing  more of the economic pie in the  form of tax hikes, user fees and  ferry increases."  Lockstead predicted the  ferry increases, together with  scheduling cutbacks, will result  in fewer passengers on the ferry  system.  "I will not be surprised to  see a deficit in the system next  year," he said. Lockstead  described the move as poor  economics and an unjustified  political attack on residents of  remote areas.  Invasion of Nicaragua feared  Speakers fear U.S  by Judith Wilson  In Gibsons last week  speakers from Nicaragua and  Grenada concurred that the  . U.S. invasion of Grenada was  X, a rehearsal for the long-feared  invasion of Nicaragua by.  American forces.  Speaking at a meeting organ-  zied by the Sunshine Coast  Central American Support  Committee, Darwin Juarez, an  official of the Nicaraguan  Teachers' Union and of the  Central American Teachers'  Organization, described his  country's efforts to maintain  peace and stability under constant pressure from UtS. backed  guerillas.  ���'There is an average of four  civilians killed in Nicaragua  everyday from a non-declared  war launched by Reagan," he  explained. He spoke of cons  tant attacks on civilian and  economic targets by the 'con-  tras', the rebel bands supported  by the U\S.  On the borders of Nicaragua  5,000 American troops have  been added to the 5,000 already  in Honduras, there is pressure  on Costa Rica to allow 2,000  marines into the country and  19 warships have participated  in manoeuvres off the coast.  Juarez was invited to speak  in Canada by the British Columbia Teachers' Federation.  He painted a grim picture of  the position of teachers in Central America. "Over 1,000  teachers have been assassinated  in Guatemala, Honduras and  El Salvador, hundreds are in  jail and thousands in exile," he  explained. In Nicaragua he is  one of only two executives left  to run the teachers' organization; the rest are on active duty.  Over 100 teachers have been  killed in Nicaragua this year.  He expressed gratitude for  the support he has received in  his tour of Canada which he  hopes will eventually enable his  country to be a "free  homeland" for its people. "We  want a just and dignified peace;  not the 'peace of the cemetery'  Reagan wants for us," he said.  Nicaragua has presented  numerous peace proposals to  the U.S. The latest one, which  proposed that. all foreign advisers should leave Nicaragua,  was described by the U.S. as  superficial.  CUSO workers, Sue Mitchell  and Harvey Totten, who were  in Grenada at the time of the  U.S. intervention, described  the invasion as "war games".  The armaments used to take  Please turn to page 9  by Judith Wilson  Newly,  ejected   {jibsons  ���> aldermen, John Burnside and  Ron, Neilson,. have wasted no  , time fulfilling their campaign  "^promises. At their first council  , meeting last week they served  /Miotice of their intentions to  deal with the issues  of the  method of appointment of the  clerk-treasurer; of the contract  / concerning development of the  marina and hotel on Gibsons  harbour; and of by-law 310  which, apparently because, of  an administrative oversight, is  reported to have cost local taxpayers a considerable amount  of money. ,'        ' X.  Thev process by which the  position of clerk-treasurer, at  present held by Mrs. Lorraine  Goddard, immediate past  mayor of Gibsons, was advertised and filled will be discussed  at the next council meeting.  Mrs. Goddard has just begun a  six-month probationary term in  the position.  Council passed a motion  moved by alderman Burnside  and seconded by alderman  Neilson that a public information meeting should be held to  inform the public as fully as  possible of the terms and conditions of the contract, recently  signed with Gibsons Marina  Hotel Incorporated for the  development of the marina and  hotel ottVthe harbour. Both  aldermen? recommended that  -���the developers involved, Art  McGiniiis and Joii McRae of  Panorama Constructidns Ltd.,  should:* be present at the  " meeting. - ���  Although it was pointed out  thaMSopies of. the contract are  available at\the1miihicipakpf-  /Xl^fOTPlBblfc^S^JCOU^l  agreeda iha/k^jmempting^- to  understand the*Iegalese* of this  document was no substitute for  a question and answer session  with the;jdevelopers,  In an effort "to put the  public's mind; at rest" over the  old waterworks : by-law 310  which has /received considerable:;-publicity - recently,  alderman Neilson moved that  the: finance committee should  give a full explanation at the  next council, meeting. Alder^  man Burnside, in seconding the  motion, pointed out that  "things; are not as bad as they  seem to be" although the cost  to taypayers "might have been  $100,000 if! the provincial  government had hot stepped  in". -XX.,     '������-���.; ���    '  ���  The provincial government  has allowed the by-law to go to  the municipal financing  authority for long-term financ-  ingiri spite of the fact that bylaw 310 had been on interim  financing since 1977.  Alderman Edney cautioned  that ."there are constraints involved" and that it will "take  time and money to ferret out  the exact amount involved".  A   recommendation   from  alderman Burnside would, see  council inviting those who ran  for council to participate in an  ; unofficial way in the work of  committee meetings at the  discretion of committee  chairmen. In order to further  broaden the base of informa-~  tion and advice on which council operates, he also recom  mended that residents of Gibsons with experience anil  knowledge of the issues involved should be invited to contribute to the workings of committees. ���  Seen���-.'.acceptable9  contract  Ed Gill, second vice-  president of Local 1-71 of the  International Woodworkers of  America, said he has not yet  received a copy of the contract  proposed for IWA workers,  but felt that the company had  conceded on a number of issues  and "most of our problems got  cleaned up". _  He specifically mentioned  better pensions for retired  workers, and an additional one  half per cent wage increase in  the second year of a three year  contract.  Overall, Gill called the pr<r>  posed contract "possibly acceptable, but not good' '^  Union negotiators felt it was "a  presentable enough package to  take to the membership with  recommendations''. v  He   felt   the   negotiating  team's recommendation would ;  probably be to accept the cb'rj��  tract.

Coast News, December 12,1983  A government  only a masochist  could love  Surely this is a provincial government that only a  masochist could love. The Socreds apparent determination to stick it to the people of British Columbia, particularly coastal British Columbia, apparently knows no  bounds. What other conclusion can be reached in light of  the recently announced ferry fare increases.  Much might be made of the fact that some local folk  were under the distinct impression that B.C. Ferry president Stu Hodgson had given a commitment that there  would be no fare increases without consultation but it  hardly seems worth the trouble of complaining about it.  It has been simply true that most of the much-heralded  consultations with the officials of the ferry corporation  have been shams and charades with little, if any, local  output ever being acted upon. The only difference in recent years has been that instead of sending just Bill  Bouchard to the meetings, the public-relations oriented  Hodgson has come himself with a supporting battery of  captains and such.  Whether or not there should have been consultations is  largely academic. What is' sure is that the provincial  government is taking a sizable chunk of change out of the  pockets of the people of the Sunshine Coast. And they  have the fares so high that there is real danger of a falling  off of traffic. Next year we'll likely be looking at more  service cuts because traffic doesn't warrant seven sailings  a day.  With the economy of the Sunshine Coast just beginning to stir to life after the roughest couple of years since  the Second World War, anything more likely to have a  dampening effect on recovery can scarcely be imagined.  In this and in other areas the government's misguided  assault on the consumers of this province is causing B.C.  to lag at the very rear of the field of provincial  economies. And all we can look forward to is more of the  same. It's going to seem like a very long time'to the next  election.  ..from the files of the COAST NEWS  >; 5 YEARS AGO  1~.

Through most of the nineteenth century, marine vessels, from  small launches to ocean-going ships, could be equipped with  either sail or steam engine, or both. While steam-powered  locomotives were in use on fixed rails contemporary with steam-  powered water craft, the steam engine saw limited service in free-  roving, self-propelled land transportation devices. The best  known exception, the Stanley Steamer, was produced on only a  small scale and only for a few years. Basically, vehicles ashore,  until the early years of the twentieth century, relied on the horse  for motive power.

She  is slim; she is trim; she is supple. Every day she follows a  regime of yoga exercises. She is  not flamboyant, self-effacing  rather. But at a recent wedding  reception she amazed those  who did not know her well with  the youthful enthusiasm of her  dancing when the music grew  insistent.  She is a member of the NDP.  Without seeking recognition,  she has worked for the party of  her choice for more than half a  century. She is a volunteer in  the NDP Bookstore, more than  that, she is the co-ordinator of  the other volunteers. Countless  hours have been spent on the  telephone arranging and  organizing, taking care of the  tedious details which must be  taken care of so that others can  take the limelight.  Like a West Coast forest  pool, she looks still and calm  on the surface; like a West  Coast forest pool she is constantly changed and renewed  by the currents of today; like a  West Coast forest pool her  depth.', contain a lurking wit  and awareness lying like sentient trout beneath the stillness  of the rocks.  She and her sister, Eileen  Glassford, were my first  friends when I came to the  Coast and T could not have  been luckier.! Through lean  years their affection and sup  port was steadfast. They commiserated in the unhappy times  and rejoiced when fortune  smiled.  Time and crowded circumstance have made me a less  frequent visitor to the house  that stands where the other  house stood, but I'm sure there  are at least two current books  in the process of being read.  The mind is still enquiring, still  being renewed four score of  years after her birth in  Glasgow.  She first came to the Coast  here some 70 years ago. She  and her little sister paddled  across to Keats Island on a log  before the first of the world's  wars in this century. She has  ; returned to end her days on the  site of that first summer cabin  to which she came when the  ; century was young. But not for  her is the quiet contemplation  of the end. She is as active, and  as giving now, as always.  Among the gifts that she  gives is the example of how one  can grow old with grace and  dignity; how the years cannot  detract from the youthfulness  . of a sense of humour; cannot  diminish a deep-held hope for  mankind.

Well; run-in is not  quite the word; nobody has a  run-in with the Moose.  Moose is an old buddy of  mine from my old union days.  He was a union organizer with,  the Seamen's International  Union and I met him while he  was on a little raiding mission  against a ship controlled by the  Canadian Brotherhood of  Railway and Transport  workers. He was, and still is,  one of the great union  organizers. He's about six foot  four, 270 pounds and is  reputed to have eaten line  backers for breakfast when he  played high school football. All  in all, Moose can be very persuasive.  I tangled with him last week  when I phoned him down at the  union hall to ask his advice  about what we teachers should  do about making up the time  we missed on our three day  labour dispute. "Look  Moose," I said, "we teachers  absented ourselves from our  regular teaching duties for  three days because we felt it  was important to support our  brothers and sisters in the  public sector over the issue of  layoffs and seniority. Now  we're going to have to work  three days for free to make it  up to the students. What do  you think we should do?"  "Cut the crap kid" (he  always calls me 'kid') "you  whimpy bunch of egg heads hit  the bricks because you was  sucked in by union men. Don't  come bawling to me because  you got screwed around".  "But Moose" I protested,  "what were we supposed to  do?"  At this point the Moose's  language became a little earthy,  so I can't report exactly what  he said. But he reminded me of  the time that he led 80 sailors  on a wildcat walkout back in  the '50s. The issue (and. I  remember it well) arose when  an old steward got fired  because he wouldn't address  the chief steward as 'sir'.  When Moose heard that the  old guy had been fired he came  storming out on to the deck,  climbed up on the winch and  yelled up at the captain that if  the fired man wasn't back on  board in 15 minutes, the whole  crew was walking off.  1 don't recallirthat any of the  crew was consulted on the matter and there definitely wasn't a  vote; but then Moose, being  who he was, didn't have any  opposition either.  When the 15 minutes was up,.  Moose went back down into*  the foc'sle and came back out-  wearing his SIU uniform and-  carrying his sea bag (An SjILC  uniform, for those who don'j-;  know, is a dark rain coat witrfc  long baggy sleeves designed to  hide a sawed-off baseball bat;f*  Before I knew it, we were"-;  over the side and walking a' ;  picket line out on the street !  near our dock. ;  We weren't out long. By the ,  afternoon, the old steward was ;  back on board and the com- i  pany manager had personally ;  come out to the picket line and ;  apologized for what he called j  "an unfortunate misunderstan- I  ding". ;  I heard everything the com-   j  pany manager said and there   j  was no mention of us having  cheated the company or making up the time we lost.  We were out about four  hours maybe, so I guess we lost.  200 or so man-hours time. We  didn't get paid for those four  hours, but we didn't work  them; that was fair enough.  Moose reminded me of the  incident as a kind of answer to  my question. It was his way of  saying that if I had to ask him  such a stupid question, that  was all the answer I deserved. '~*  When the teachers hit the,  bricks for three days we didn't;  have that kind of leadership.:  We debated the whole thing for*,  hours on end; we voted; wei  agonized, and then we walked'  off the job. Now that the:  government has told us that we'  have to go back and work for*,  the equivalent of the three days',  we missed, the hot topic!  around the staff room is how;  we will make up the time. I've',  been in a few unions in my',  time; the IWA, the CBRT, the:  Steelworkers, and some others,:  but I don't think any of those t  unions would have put up with *  any discussion of making up)  time after a strike. 1  There aren't many men like -  Moose Smolinski, and certainly ,  the teachers' union has very ;  few of them. That's probably ���  just as well; I don't think I'd :  like Moose teaching my kids. ;  But he did have a way of  simplifying things. w~~ ' V  ���pw-faWTlV*-  --3  Coast News, December 12,1983  -.3.  ^Editor \  *>>  The doctors of this community  ��*JeeI very strongly about the seat  gvbelt benefits, and would appreciate  g&yourpublishing'this.  *g?

Premier'Bennett was  received" by the Coast News'for  publication  , Dear Honourable Bennett:  We are most upset by the announcement regarding the increase in ferry rates effective  January 1, 1984.  You, Sir, the great initiator  of the 6 and 5 programme, how  can you allow our ferry rates to  go up by 48 per cent in one year  for a foot passenger���instead  of the "5" you so publicly  broadcasted.  Being a resident of the Sunshine x,Coast,x\ with no other  roads but the ferry system, the  rate of $2;7p for a foot  passenger���with the current  commuter card system���is going up to $4 due to the fact that  the cards are being abolished:  In addition, the rate of $14.95  for the vehicle is being increased to $18.00, which means a 20  per cent increase again partially  due to the cards being remov  ed. For an average family of  four, this means an increase of  approximately 30 per cent; the  people in this community can  ill afford this treatment!  We therefore request that the  commuter cards remain in effect at the current rate ($1)  which would still provide a  healthy increase in excess of 10  per cent.

For one  example:  Footpassengers,   non-resident,  now $3.70, as of January���.������!",���  1984 $4, increase - 8.1 per cent;  resident with card, now $2.70,  as of January 1, 1984y$4r increase1- 48.2 per cent.

Wouldn't it be fairer to have a  ,50 cents increase on all foot  .passenger fares? An increase of  $1 ;30 is intolerable, especially  ^because it is aimed at one select  group;'. ���."���:���',���  I urge everyone concerned or  affected to immediately send a  letter of protest to Premier  Bennett, Parliament Buildings,  Victoria, B.C.; V8V 1X4; and  please bring in or send a copy  to me.

As a result, we will  have a lending officer up here each  Friday, except December 23. Appointments would be helpful, but  not necessary.  This is a good tinie to note the  different Christmas hours that the  bank and Credit Union are displaying. There's nothing like missing  getting your money out in time for  Christmas. Take heed!  CLOSED FOR CHRISTMAS  I see that Gib and Sophie at  Ruby Lake Restaurant will be closed December 24, 25 and 26. They  will .still be working though,  they're having all their families  over for a big celebration. One  bright reason to go there soon is  that once again Gib has the big tree  all lit up. Just driving by I can feel.  my heart soften with happy  memories of all the Christmases. If  you don't think you're in the spirit  yet, drive by on a clear night, I  think you'll like it.  CHRISTMAS PLAY  If you didn't get to see "A  Christmas Carol" at the high  school last week, you can still pick  it up. at Roberts Creek this week.  It's a timely play and full of fun.  Best of all, the message is "it's  never too late to change". I wish  Reagan and Andropov and all the  rest could see it too!  NEW BABIES  Still, with all this worry there's  the balance that life gives. Last  week St. Mary's Hospital hosted  three Harbour women, then their  three men and finally three new  babies. John and Rosa Ware had a  big boy, Erik; Ross Macdonald  and Wendy Milner had a girl,  Sarah, and Kim and Mike Clark  also had a girl, Kate. Proud grandparents there, are Peggy and Peter  Grabenhof. Welcome and congratulations to everyone!  CHINOOK LIMIT  Take note that the catch of  Chinooks is reduced from four to  two per day.  TELEPHONE CABLES  John Elsdon, our phone man,  tells me that a new cable capable of  servicing 900 more phones, has just  been laid between Madeira Park  government wharf and Garden Bay  Estates. That's good; we're getting  ready to grow again.  , Actually, iri the midst bf all the  economic gloom, .'this area has  quite a few pots on the stove and  lots of'people in there stirring  them. More on this next week, but  with a golf course, Employment  Development Agency and rapidly  expanding community council, I  think we'll come out okay.  LIBRARY NEWS  I almost always forget about our  library, but Joan Willcock tells me  there's 40 new books in this week  and still more to be put out.  Membership for the coming year  may be paid after December 15,  (it's due January 1), and it's $2 for  a single and $3 for a family. How  can you lose? Hours are Tuesday,  Thursday and Saturday, 1:30-3:30  p.m. Another reason I'll probably  do it is because the pool and the  "heavenly sauna" will be closed  from December 12 through the  holidays. Now that hurts! Just  when we have the most time and  the most need (oink, oink!) for exercise. Still, I guess the pool  workers need a holiday too.

Introductions,  reports of the various groups and  previous minutes were crisply  presented and adopted.  Gift presentations of appreciation were made to Ted Dinsley,  retiring chairman and Audrey  Cobleigh, treasurer, for their years  of service.  Watch for their announcement  of coming special events by the  district council which will include a  'special' in scouting week in  February 1984 and participation in  the Seventh Regional Hike-A-  Thon in April 1984.  The guest speaker was Bill Gage  from the Coast Regional District  office who commented on  "Scouting in the Space Age���Have  things really changed?".  The report of the nominating  committee was accepted and the  following executive for 1984 were  elected:  Honorary President, Norm Burley;  Past President, Ted Dinsley; President,  Walter Dennis; Vice-President, Bob  Adams; Secretary, Stephanie Ryan;  Treasurer, Bill McKee; Members at  large, Alex Bowie, Don Chappel, Tom  Collins, Bob Brydon, Carol Hartman,  Dave Hartman, Olivia Seal, Jim  Johnstone, Doug Honeybunn.  Highlights of changes  Effective January 1,1984  1. RATES  An overall average increase of 6%.  A general increase for Third Party  Liability coverage together with adjustments for vehicle use, will result in an  increase of between $11 and $25.  Depending upon the kind of ^vefy%les;  and the insurance purchased*, Some owners of vehicles rated for 'business use' will  realize a reduction of between $6 and $25.  Some owners of vehicles rated for 'pleasure use' or for -driving to and from work'  and others who have trailers or vehicles on  which the premium is much lower than  average, will pay more.  ��� ������������^_ I I   I    ���. I���������III,       ' '   I   ��� I.  2. PREMIUM FINANCE PLAN  Premium financing will be discontinued effective with January 1, 1984 renewals and new business after that date. A  combination of loss of investment income  and operating costs makes the continuation of this service inappropriate in this  period of restraint. Institutions dealing in  loans of this nature have been advised of  this change.  3. DEDUCTIBLE OPTIONS  (for private passenger and light commercial vehicles)  Specified Perils may be purchased  with a deductible of $50.  With a Comprehensive deductible of  either $50 or $100, Collision coverage  may be purchased with a deductible of  either $100, $200 or $300.  With a Comprehensive deductible of  $100 or $150, Collision may be purchased  with a deductible of $500.  With a Comprehensive deductible of  $150, Collision may be purchased with a  deductible of $1,000.  (The higher the deductible, the lower the  premium.)  4. BUSINESS USE CLASSIFICATION  The definition of 'business use' has  been expanded to include the use of a  vehicle by an employee who is paid by an  employer for using ���the vehicle in the  course of his work. TJus does riot encom-  pass-r\cojhmercial use', which means the  use of a vehicle for thef&elivery or carriagey  of goods. Consult your Autoplan Agent  for full details.  5. TRANSFER PROCEDURES  Before compatible licence number-  plates may be attached to a replacement  vehicle and existing coverage transferred  to a newly acquired vehicle for the 10 days  permitted to formally register the transfer,  it, is required that title or interest in the  previously licenced vehicle be transferred.  6. REHABILITATION  When a rehabilitation claimant fails  to comply with medically approved and  recommended physical rehabilitation  treatment or vocational training, disability  payments may be discontinued after expiry of 60 days notice.  For more detailed information on  these items and other optional  Autoplan coverages please refer  to the 1984 Autoplan Motorist Kit,  available at all Autoplan Agents  and Motor Licence Offices.  7. N.S.F. CHEQUES  The service charge on cheques returned for reason of 'non sufficient funds'  will be increased to $10 for each item. This  change is due to the rising costs of repeat  billings and increased charges by banking  institutions.  8. TIME LIMITS  The time limit for arbitration or litigation of Own Damage claims has been  extended from one yeafto two years. The  two year period runs from the date of the  occurrence of the loss or damage.  The time limit for litigation of Accident Benefit claims has been extended to  two years from one ye&r. The two year  period runs from either the date of the  accident or the date of the last benefit  paid. There are a number of conditions that  apply to this time limit and are set out in  the Autoplan Revised Regulations (1984X  AUTOPLAN  COVERAGES  COLLISION-  CO vers , loss or;,. damage to the insured  vehicle resulting from upset or collision  ; with another objec.t.' Xi catiT be purchased  ohly in combination witli Comprehensive  coverage and is available with various  deductibles.  COMPREHENSIVE���  covers damage from any cause other than  collision or upset. In addition to specified  perils listed in the 1984 Motorist Kit, it  covers glass breakage, vandalism, malicious mischief, falling or flying objects,  missiles, and impact with an animal. When  purchased in combination with Collision,  Comprehensive is subject to various deductibles. When purchased separately; a  deductible of either $50 or $100 applies.  UNDERINSURED  MOTORIST PROTECTION���  provides extended protection to the victims of an accident when the insurance  carried^ by the driver at fault is not  sufficient to pay claims for injury or  death. It provides that the victim's own  Third Party Liability coverage can be  applied to bring the total payment to the  higher limit of liability. X  For example, in a situation where the  driver at fault has $100,000 Third Party  Liability coverage and the victim has  $500,000, the maximum payment for the  accident is $500,000.  LOSS OF USE COVERAGE���  provides reimbursement up to the limits  chosen, for expenses incurred for substitute transportation when a valid claim is  made under Own Damage coverage.  SPECIAL EQUIPMENT  ENDORSEMENT���  provides separate, additional coverage for  items of special value attached to the  vehicle but not automatically covered.  ��� INSURANCE  CORPORATION  OF BRITISH COLUMBIA  Sunshine Coast  imm Ltd  '. i  ���on i:  '.in i  .'ilfji!  <! .Si  ' bin,  :������ ori:  .ihv  :*/n'>  xr  ..-���ii.'L  M  rN  ���k  )  ,~J  ���MOTOR LICENCE OFFICE-  CREDIT UNION BUILDING, TEREDO SQUARE, SECHELT  885-2291 y-z-vC-*.--.-?.-  i  i  Coast News.

American nationals. While events surrounding Bishop's death are  unclear, U.S. intervention was  described by the workers as a  "monumental tragedy".  "The country was pioneering a new route for social and  economic development which  would have been an example  for that part of the world," he  said.  The CUSO workers did not  agree with American assessment of the Grenadian reaction  to the invasion. While on one  hand a 'visa mentality'  operates, which sees America  as "glittery and fantastic", on  the other hand the normally  ebullient Grenadians did not  welcome the invaders with their  usual warmth and are skilled in  the art of passive resistance for  survival, perfected over 400  years of slavery and colonialism.  "The Americans have walked into the English speaking  Caribbean and into the Commonwealth, the regional implications will be widespread,"  concluded the two CUSO  workers.

There is particular  danger at curves, which are seemingly endless, when oncoming vehicles approach with lights so bright as to render  one nearly blind.  I have had a few incidents recently that were near  disasters because of high beam blindness. I can understand  the need to have lots of lighting on dark and rainy nights,  but when driving almost bumper to bumper, it is not  necessary to use high beams.  I do wish that people would voluntarily dip thier lights to  low beam as they approach a vehicle either in their lane or  passing an oncoming car.  "REALWiN"  U<  '���^P^MfX  Winner # 174  Joan Warn,  SSOfifoteyy Hrai^Pihner  Another danger is driving either too fast or too slow on  our curving highway. Of the two faults, I would consider  driving too slow the most tormenting to drivers in long  streams of traffic, therefore the most hazardous.  When a person drives- 50, 60 or 70 kph on an 80 kph  posted zone, expecially in good conditions, traffic builds up  in long columns and eventually someone risks a two or  three vehicle overtake which is life-threatening to everyone  nearby.  In my view, the slow driver, whether a heavy loaded truck  or an excursion driver who fails to observe traffic building  up and pull over is dangerous and should be susceptible to  discipline in the same manner as a speeder.  ���GIBSONS!

'TIL >.���'��  The final beef and dangerous situation happens nightly on  the highway when people in dark clothing either walk the  highway on the right side (with traffic instead of against), or  stand almost on the pathway of an oncoming vehicle, hitchhiking. I broke out in a cold sweat last week when, rounding a curve, facing bright lights, I very nearly struck a  pedestrian. I want to do what I can to publicize these  hazards for the common good.  Our own courteous attention to these matters will go a  long way towards safe holiday driving. In the long term, we  desperately need a number of passing lanes for the safe  overtaking of slow traffic. With the larger ferries resulting in  releases of vehicles in large bunches, our highways urgently  need an overhaul.  f~Ml  r->. w?5  Jt-'censed 1  886-9021  r$6-7$8$i  Try our  Delicious  Luncheon  Specials  DRY CLEANERS  "(or the best prices"  DRAPE Special   (onepanef= 5 pleats)  Short, unllned  Long, unlined.

Eventually he invites us inside.  "Getting inside" Jack Bird's  house proves to be somewhat of a  problem. We find ourselves  enislanded on a cramped area of  floor space about five feet square.  Beyond lies an impassable jumble  that almost beggars description.  The walls are lined with bookcases  that reach to the ceiling but they  appear to have overflowed on to  the floor, creating a virtual log-jam  of random reading matter. Mingled with the books and magazines  are maps, posters and various artifacts in glass cases, including a  giant Amazonian spider and  samples of sand from both  Hiroshima and the Holy Land.  They are souvenirs, Jack informs  us with some pride, of his worldwide travels. He then shows us  several coloured prints of his  marine paintings. They feature  sailing ships, very competently executed. The reclusive Mr. Bird is  obviously a man of many facets.  But it is also obvious that we  have caught Jack Bird in a state of  major disarray. Attempting an interview under the circumstances  seems neither fair nor practical.  There are various notes, letters and  photographs that Bird has to  locate. Yvonne and I do not envy  him the task in that unholy muddle. We decide to take our leave for  the time being, promising to return  the following day.  Jack Bird.is well prepared for  our second visit. He has put his  unruly house in order. The detritus  between the bookcases is gone. We  follow him down the cleared  passageway to his sanctum sanctorum. There are chairs, a table  end, and somewhat incongruously,  an electric typewriter and a small  television set. A kitchen and partitioned bedroom are visible beyond  this central living space. Bird seems  in fine fettle today and very anxious to talk. Yvonne flips on the  tape cassette and we start getting  down to cases.  Bird's rather flat voice does not  betray his 80-odd years. He has  worked as a travel lecturer in  ���former days and he still speaks  with the firm authority of a much  younger man. He has obviously  read most of the more than 3,000  books that share his sanctuary and  his talk is coloured with  remarkable analogies and odd  leaps of thought:  On first meeting Herbert Emerson Wilson; "I could tell he was an .  active man by the way he walked  down the steps. He was wearing  carpet slippers. His hair was close-  cut and he had a very well-shaped  head���well developed. I'll bet it  was close to 23 inches���same as  Napoleon's."  And on Wilson's death; "He  died in 1968, didn't he. I remember  the date because it was the same  year Martin Luther King was  assassinated. He died in April,  Herb died in August. If you want  to take off the '19', you get  '68'���the year Nero suicided���68  A.D. That's how I remember the  three dates."  Jack Bird is definitely an  original.  To be continued.

It was Mr. Crosbie who told a  Maclean's magazine reporter in July of this year: "If I told you what I  would do, we'd never get elected."  This was of course the same Mr.  Crosbie who told a television interviewer back in 1979 (just before he  became finance minister) that "our  leaders have got to be a little less  honest. We're not being devious  and tricky enough."  His. candor reveals a major  strategy of the Conservative party  in these months leading up to the  next federal election. They also  point ot a factor effecting the often  haltering way parliament goes  about its business lately.  To have no position is the  guiding rule of the Official Opposition in the House of Commons,  this allows them to be in favour of  doing away with the Crow rail rate  at the beginning of the debate and  to be against doing away with it at  the end of the debate.  Of course, in practice, it is usually more subtle than that. One of  the ways it is done is to have one  Conservative member take one  position and another take a completely opposite position. Thus,  some Tories seem prepared to  throw their bodies in front of tanks  rather than accept the metric  system, while others���the majority���simply go along with it, as  Gibsons  Public Library  Hours:  Tuesday 2-4 p.m.  Wednesday 10:30-4 p.m.  Thursday 2-4 p.m.  7-9 p.m.  Saturday 2-4 p.m.  they did, in fact, when they were in  power. For other Conservative  MPs, bringing back capital punishment is a consuming issue. Yet the  front bench, including Joe Clark  and Brian Mulroney, are against it.  On disarmament, the two-  policies-are-better-than-one theory  is very impressive. Doug Roche, a  Conservative member for Calgary,  appears at peace marches and  disarmament   rallies   to   speak  ���rightly, in my view���against the  madness of nuclear arms escalation. But while he is doing it, Allan  Mckinnon, the Conservative  member for Victoria, is publicly  decrying how small Canada's role  is in that arms race.  And so it goes. On the deterioration of the fishery, on native land  claims, on medicare, on de-  indexing pensions, on the whole  range of public issues, you are not  going to catch the Progressive  Conservative Party of Canada ygth  one position. -^  As Mr. Crosbie said ,last year  when asked what policies his party  would bring in: "They are ne^er  going to know unless they put jthe  PCs in with a majority. They wjjnt  to have something that they can^at-  tack about the PC party."  It may be good politics. But is.it  responsible? t;  Mai,y^nne*s Viewppint  Who are the bad guys?  by Maryanne West  Picking up where I left off last  week, in my philosophy, the  privilege of protest, up to and including, non-violent civil disobedience, is an integral part of the  democratic system���it being self-  understood that if you break the  law you are prepared to take the  consequences.  It would be easy to agree in principle with my critic's contention  that "no self-interest group has the  right to interfere with the  democratic process," but this  deceptively simple statement may  well open up a whole can of  worms. I don't want to get into an  argument as to whether the  teachers were motivated by self-  interest or by concern for the  educational system, but to take a  look at 'self-interest' groups.  My understanding is that my  critic feels the teachers' withdrawal  of service last month was an action  Coast Gardener  which endangered the democratic  process, and that self-interest  groups are bad.  But maybe it isn't that all self-  . interest groups are bad, but that  there are good ones and bad ones.  How does one decide���is it my  self-interests are the good guys and  yours the bad?  I don't know, but it does seem  that self-interest groups are the  name of the game in the.capitalist  system and that all seek to influence the Government in their  favour in one way and another. I  don't doubt, human nature being  what it is, that other systems have  the same problem.  Some of these groups, like the  gun lobby in the U.S. and the big  industrial companies, maintain  organizations in the halls of power  to influence elected representatives  and keep the ear of influential civil  servants. Small groups with limited  funds write letters or organise  demonstrations.  If you can convince the govern^  ment of the importance of yotir  particular interest, you can get$  grant of tax-payers' money tci.  assist you in paying off youij  creditors or making your calgj  before a government commission;?  Whether this is good or bad  depends upon ,whether you belief  that what is good for Genera^  Motors (or Dome, or Whistler qij  B.C. Hydro or Media Watch) jgj  good for everyone else. J|j  I'm also not at all sure that this  system which seems to be at tfi^  mercy of those who can buy influence or those who, lacking tjjf  means, have to resort to other  forms of pressure, has anything at  all to do with democracy. It does!  however, seem a little unfair to  suggest that the little guys mu$  "leave the duly elected governmeiJj|  to govern" until the next electionj  unless you're also going to muzzle  all those other self-interest groups*  Ancient symbol of Christmas  .it  3  by Dianne Evans  One of the most ancient symbols  of the Christmas season is the  bough of holly. The custom of using evergreen boughs as decoration  dates from Roman times; the  Saturnalian celebration, later  adopted by the Christians, included the exchange of green boughs  and other gifts. Evergreens were  also important to the Druidsand it  is easy to see how such customs  may have crept into early Christian  practices. !>    -i-..  'vlThe red���-berrie^^and-.^thorny  leaves of.the riolly are!;said ^represent the blood of Chrjstrs.suffering  and legend has it the tree grew in  His footsteps. It's name derives  from Holy Tree, although it does  have other names, including  Christ's Thorns.  If planted near a house it is supposed to repel poison and protect it  from lightening and witchcraft. It  is a very slow growing tree; seed  germination may take two years! It  is a heavy feeder at first, so if you  plan on adding a holly to your  garden, prepare the soil, digging  very well to loosen and adding a  moderate amount of 'manure, well-  j-otte��|y;Fallvis-the best time to 'do";  ��� *%ibl'ly ��� wood is ^very" hard and  even.

The board signed a 'letter of  interest' which will become  part of the grant application.  Total cost of the proposed installation will be in the  neighbourhood of $60,000.  The   regional   board   would  become responsible for about  $26,000 of that cost.  According to -, Jones, the  solar heater will pay for itself  within two years by heating the  air and the water at the pool.  Some difficulties experienced  with the Gibsons solar heater  have apparently been corrected  and it is expected a substantial  saving in fuel will result. '���"��  The Pender solar heater will-'  be of a larger capacity design  and Jones assured the board  that the problems encountered;  in Gibsons won't be eh:-*  countered there. -If  If funding is received, installation could begin as early  as January.

UNEMPLOYMENT ACTION  CENTRE  Priscilla Brown, coordinator of the Unemployment Action Centre, appeared  before Gibsons council to re-,  quest the use of the old fire hall  in Lower. Gibsons once the fire  department moves to its almost  completed, facility on North  Road.  The UAC's present facility,  St. Bartholomew's Church  Hall, does not provide privacy  for counselling or adequate office space. A . larger space  would also allow the UAC to  operate drop-in centres for  teenagers and young adults.  Council will discuss the request  in committee.  MARINA DREDGING  Gibsons council learned at  its last meeting that an additional $17,000 will allow for extra dredging on the marina project to improve public access  and allow room for an aircraft  and hovercraft dock.  It seems that the federal  government is amenable to  paying half the cost and. the  other half will be paid by council out of its provincial grant  money.; Council agreed to 'forr  ward the money at once, since  the dredging must be. underr  taken immediately while the  dredge is working in> the .harbour.   , .,:..

The Huntings feel that their efforts to  Snake the house economically  viable and to preserve this "incredible building" will be  facilitated if the heritage-house  designation can be obtained.  Mrs.   Hunting told council  that she and her husband had  hoped to operate the house as a  bed-and-breakfast facility but  problems with unforeseen  repairs, and with tenants, had  caused them to miss the summer trade. They will be forced  to give up the house if they cannot find a way to make it pay  for itself.  Council will discuss the matter at this week's planning  meeting. Ironically a letter  received from the Ministry of  Municipal Affairs at the same  council meeting encourages  municipalities to help establish  bed-and-breakfast facilities  particularly to cope with the expected increase in tourist traffic  for Expo'86.

It was th  occasion of the Christmas'  meeting of the auxiliary at  which 35 members were present, including three new  members.  President Alison Steele had  the pleasant task of presenting  a plaque and corsage to two  ladies who have given many  years of work and service to the  auxiliary. They were Alice  Halford and Eva Lyons. Both  ladies were surprised.and thrill-:  ed to receive such recognition  and appreciation and both  were very worthy of this  honour.  Retiring president Alison  jSteele expressed her thanks to  the membership for the great  support given throughout her  term of office. Edith simmons,  president of St. Mary's  Hospital Auxiliary performed  the installation of officers for  1984 in a candlelight ceremony.

For your safety and that of other  motorists, these signs are  authorized by law.  During the next few weeks, random  checks wiil be carried out by the  RCMP in problem driving areas,  more particularly the Hope-  Princeton, the Squamish Highway to  Whistler, the Fraser Canyon, but  including other sections of road on  Vancouver. Island and the rest of the  province subject to snow conditions.  The operation will be in conjunction  with the Attorney General's  "CdunterAttack" programme and  other police traffic checks. Drivers,  of vehicles not property equipped  may be turned back or charged.  i   >  The Ministry of Transportation and  Highways is doing its-best to-clear  snow and maintain our roads in  winter to make them safe. Before  driving into snow areas, make sure  you have good winter tires and  are parrying chains to make your  vehicle safe.  Be on the lookout for snow clearing  and sanding equipment sometimes  operating in conditions of limited  visibility. Their flashing amber lights  are warning you to use extreme  caution and slow down. Make sure  also that you observe special  signing and directions of flagpersons  if you should encounter.them, and  please drive carefully.

It seems that run-off water from  both Wharf Road and the lane  beside the Legion flow into the  parking lot, especially from the  lane which is. almost two ' feet  higher than the parking lot. A  catch basin in the north-west corner of the lot and a culvert to Inlet  Avenue would hopefully solve the  flooding problem.  Council was assured that there  would be much volunteer labour  and equipment to help with the  necessary work, and agreed to have  its engineer study the situation and  consider the most appropriate action.  EMPLOYMENT DEVELOPMENT REPRESENTATIVE  -' While "wondering how this is  going to work���they, must see that  things out there are better than I.  do," Mayor Joyce Kolibas agreed  to sit as the Sechelt representative  on the newly formed Sunshine  Coast Employment Development  Society.  Alderman  Harvey Bist  added  that it was "wise as a council to be '  involved in as many community  events as possible".  Council also agreed to write a  letter of endorsement supporting  the aims and objectives of the  society, and revealing community -  support to the federal authorities  responsible for funding.  SPARE LOT  Village clerk, Malcolm Shanks,  has learned that Lot 9, next to the  public works yard (Lot 10) by the  arena, has already been reserved by  the Ministry of Forest for future  expansion of the works yard. The  fact that anyone wanting a timber  sale licence for the lot would have  to pay both surveying and  reforestation costs probably means  that at such time as expansion is required, the timber will still be there  for use in construction of new  works buildings.  LIBRARY  "It's at the messy stage now,"  reported Alderman Graham Craig  of the slightly'ahead-of-schedule  construction of the Sechelt Library .  addition. The insulation arid  vapour barriers are complete, some  drywalling is done, and the  breakthrough of the old end wall  into the new area has taken place.

The committee   has   also   learned   that  Aldermen  $10,000 will be spent by the SCRD  for the writing of an overall  emergency plan,-called "a must for  continuity" by Alderman Craig.  WRITS MAY BE ISSUED  While cross-referencing past bylaws, it has been discovered that on  March 4, 1981, Sechelt council  followed a precedent of Victoria  and passed a by-law stating that,  on the penalty date when outstanding current taxes are due, writs  may be issued to apply to the court  for recovery of all outstanding tax  accounts of $1000 or more. This  amount relates only to commercial  establishments, not residences, and  clerk, Malcolm Shanks, noted that  almost all of the $175^000 of  outstanding taxes are for commercial establishments. While it is too  late to apply the by-law this year,  council agreed to consider it next  year.  ��������� Pianos, Organs  ��� Office Equipment, etc  Member of  ALLIED.:.

Coast News, December 12,1983  Claire-Ann order illegal  m  Gibsons council was  somewhat taken aback at last  week's meeting, to receive a letter from Transport Canada informing them that the Gibsons  wharfinger is not a wharfinger  as defined in the Public Harbours Act and has no authority  tp give orders to move boats.  The letter further requested  that the clerk of Gibsons be appointed as the wharfinger.  The matter came to the attention of Transport Canada  because of an incident in July  when the Claire-Ann, a  79-year-old light ship of  historic interest but unable to  Arts Centre film  -The large red Coast Guard vessel anchored in Gibsons Harbour  ;!ast week was the "Wolf".

The charges  against her were thrown out of  court because acting wharfinger, Rob Liddicoat, had not  been officially appointed by  Transport Canada and  therefore had no authority to  order the move.  Mr. Steve Ryback, public affairs officer with Transport  Canada in Vancouver, told the  Coast News that he  understands the letter is intended to put the position of wharfinger on a legal footing. He explained that Ports and Harbours legislation has recently  been up-dated and each wharf  on the coast is being checked  "to see that it is run properly'\.  Council may appoint anyone  they choose to the position but  that appointment must bp  ratified by the ministry. . ;���  The Gibsons wharf is paying  its way now, clerk-treasurer  Lorraine Goddard told thp  Coast News. Revenue so fi-f  this year is $36,120 while .expenditures total $26,448, a different picture from five yeaij  ago when the wharf ran at~&  deficit.
