Array LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY 84 ? *  ,J-ar!i_ment Buildings. 7  Victoria, B.C. * ' . /  V8V1X4  'For Survival9  Dave and Debbie Johnson of Trout Lake Road, Halfmoon Bay, proudly show off their new son, the  Sunshine Coast's first baby of 1984! Michael David was born January 2 at 8:55 p.m., weighing 7 pounds  4 ounces. A fine brother for sisters Teira, 7, and Stacy, 4, he is the first grandson in the fifth generation  of his mother's family. Proud grandparents are Donna and Danny Holland of Sechelt, Ray and Florence  Johnson of Lillooet, and Evelyn Johnson of Ponoka, Alberta. Local doctors are presenting Michael with  an infant car seat, St. Mary's Ladies Auxiliary has given him a 'Baby Cake' composed of diapers and  pampers, socks, brush and comb, facecloth, rattle, soother, and diaper pins, and The Play Pen has offered a $25 gift certificate. ���Fran Burnside pholo  NDP leadership hopeful  Lea lashes record  ��� NDP leadership candidate  Graham Lea came to the Sunshine  Coast last Sunday and dealt with  questions concerning the perfor-  ; malice of the NDP in the jiou.se/"  the..role of the leader within the  party, the economic problems facing B.C., the method by which  policy is formulated within the party, and the conduct of the last election in a frank and freewheeling  manner.  Of the performance of the NDP  within the house, Lea was highly  critical.  "We have attacked everything  that has come up with the same inJ  tensity. We are wolf-cryers. Now  along comes a package of legislation which is truly anti-democratic,  which is truly a wolf and we have  np credibility.  - "The fact is that no government  always does everything wrong. We  should be prepared to give credit  for the positives if we want our  criticism to have credibility," said  Lea.  Lea described the role of the  leader as being the chief spokesper- ���  son for the party. Pointing to his  background in ��� the communications industry���he worked on  radio for the CBC in .the north and  in Prince Rupert���Lea said that he  could articulate policies for the  ��� party in a manner both rational  and understandable.  "The trick is putting complex  policies in a language that people  can understand," said Lea. He  pointed to the fact that former  federal NDP leader Tommy  Douglas had been doing that for  years. "I would like to model  myself after Tommy Douglas in  this regard."  Lea was frankly critical of what  he called the 'establishment within  the NDP'.  "As in any organization, there is  an establishment in our party,"  said Lea. "In my experience no  establishment ever leaves voluntarily, and I look at the establishment  of the party and I say you have a  record of failure."  Lea  said  there  is  a  crisis  in  forestry in this province; there is a  super-crisis in fishing, and a crisis  in the mining industry.  "How could we go through the  last election campaign and not*  mention these facts? If yye don't  become relevant then we will be  replaced in'this-prbvinee".'"   - ���'���.���������''������  Lea told the group of NDP .  members gathered in Mrs.. Norah  Hill's home Sunday afternoon that;,  in forestry it was not just a case of  inadequate replacement of  harvested timber.  "We have been removing alder  and weeding and now we are finding that the wood we are getting  has 20 per cent less cellulose than it  used to have and may be fit only  for pulp wood."  On the broader economic front  Lea said: "We have been looking  for investment for this province. In  what? We haven't done the  research needed to direct investment."  The NDP leadership candidate  said that it was becoming apparent  that the best hope of a bright  future was a well-educated, well-  trained workforce. "And just  when we need it the most we are  getting it less."  Highest count ever  Big year for birds  M'VThis year's local, annual  ^Audobon Christmas Bird Count  was "a champagne count in every  'respect," according to Marsh  'Wrenderings, the newsletter of the  Sechelt Marsh Protective Society.  'X With clear, calm, cold, ideal  ���weather, 11,794 birds were counted  for a total of 92 species. This is the  largest,number and most species  "sighted in the five years a Sunshine  Coast Count has been done.  .The count began auspiciously  before the sun was even up when a  C-reat Horned Owl was spotted in  IWest Sechelt and a Screech Owl in  Porpoise Bay campground. This is  ;the first time there have ever been  owls in the local count.  M The 15rnile count, circle centered  An Roberts Creek, and stretched  'from West Sechelt to. Port Mellon.  Groups in all areas commented on  the abundance of birds, both in the  bush and on the water. The high  counts included Surf Scoter, Ancient Murrelet, Surfbird, Marsh  Wren and Pine Siskin.  Five hundred and fifty-five  Varied Thrushes were spotted,  which may be the high count for  the continent. By way of comparison, during last year's count  done in cold, rainy and windy  weather, only two Varied Thrushes  were seen.  The same story holds true for  Stellar's Jay���last year there was  one lone bird, this year 50.  The total of 2,474 Surf Scoters is  the highest ever count of a single  species in this area.  Two surprise species were the  Mountain  Chickadee,  sighted at  the snowline on the Dakota Creek  logging road, and Ancient Mur-  relets, which just happened to be  streaming south along the Sunshine  Coast that day.  The only negative aspects of the  highly successful count day were  missing two relatively common  marine- birds, the Common Murre  and Pigeon Guillemot. The Murre  has never been missed before, and  the Guillemot only once.  The Gray Jay was also missed  again this year. Although residing  within the count area it has never  yet been sighted oh count day.  AH in all, it was an excellent  Christmas Bird Count, and for.  local birders the prospect of one  day having a count of 100 species  on the Sunshine Coast suddenly  becomes a tantalizing possibility.  Travel to be cheaper  . Concern over ferry rate increases  was greatly alleviated last week  when it was announced that the  five coupon books of commuter  tickets made available beginning  January 1, will "have no expiry  hmit. i  , The commuter tickets, which  cost $65 for a book of five car and ���  driver tickets, and $15 for a book  of five passenger tickets, are  available at both the Langdale and  Horseshoe Bay terminals.  While the tickets are voided if  detached from their booklet, and  are, in theory, non-transferable,  ferry officials admitted that there  would be no way of knowing if the  person using the ticket was the person who had actually purchased it.  Senior Citizens get a further  break because they travel free on  Mondays through Thursdays.  Seniors will pay $50 for a book of  car and driver tickets and will pay  the extra $4 for the driver only on  Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.  The no expiry limit means that  tickets can be used any time in the  future..The savings made by purchasing tickets means that at least  for those who can afford to pay the  $65, the cost for a car and driver  per trip will be $13, instead of the  $14.95 charged last year, for those  with the now defunct commuter  cards.  Without the commuter tickets,  the cost for a car and driver will be  $18 for the two-way trip and $4 for  passengers.  unite  Confronted by government and  economic pressures that threaten  their very survival, B.C. fishermen  have begun to unite.  More than 250 gathered in Vancouver last month at a  'Fishermen's Survival Conference'  to hammer but a programme of action to defend the fisheries  resource and their existence as  commercial fishermen.  Called by the United Fishermen  and Allied Workers Union,  the  conference's      two   ���   major  "   achievements were the adoption in  principle of a Fishermen's Charter  ���;.   of Rights, and the decision to send  :   "a major lobby to Ottawa' to' put  forward   the   policy   positions  . adopted at the conference..  ���   Workshops  wrestled  with  the  questions of a buyback programme  for licences or boats, allocating the  ^resource, Indian fishing rights, and  . jfiabitat  protection  and  manage-  Mment.  M   Considering fleet rationalization  ;and the buyback question, conference attendants recognized that  Mwhether they like it or not, the  ^Department   of   Oceans   and  Fisheries, is stating that a buyback  is going to occur.    .  ::  One of the first points raised was  .   whether the buyback should end  up   bailing   out   the. banks,   or  whether banks should take their  share of the fishermen's loss, given  the current state of the industry.  :   Expropriation of fishing rights  was considered insupportable, and  the conference felt any b'uybacks  should, be completely voluntary.  '. All cutbacks should be equally imposed on all commercial gear types  ,'��� ;;and sports fishermen, contrary to  .the federal government's suggestion that sports fishing provides  'the best buck' and should not be  cut back proportionately to the  - ^omttt'eircial industry.  A' resolution was passed that only a buyback programme which  promotes the stabilization rather  than the eliminaton of the industry  be supported in principle, provided  that it meets the following criteria:  There should be no buyback which  eliminates the jobs of bonafide  fishermen; any buyback must be  voluntary, and of tonnage and/or  vessels; any buyback must include  measures which, increase the  viability of the industry, such as  elimination or reduction of fuel  tax, no-area licensing and retention  of multiple licensing; no royalties;  a. realistic committment to salmon  enhancement; a clear and equitable  allocation of the available stocks  between commercial and other  types of fishermen and between  various gear types within the fleet;  the development of a new licensing  system which does not compound  existing problems.  The workshop entitled 'Allocate  the resource or eliminate  fishermen?' sparked much debate  on the Indian fishery.  The importance of the maximum possible unity between Indian and non^Indian fishermen was  stressed. Resolutions called for the  federal government to consult with  both groups regarding measures  designed to improve the status of  Indian fishermen and their communities, and insisted that land  and resource claims, aboriginal title and future development of the  rights of Indian people be handled  in such a way as to have no adverse  effects on commercial fishermen,  Indian and non-Indian alike.  The workshop supported the efforts of Indian people to achieve a  just, overall settlement of their  claims, but rejected the idea that  fish could be used as a sole means  of full settlement of those claims.  The question of Indian fishing  rights raised the issues of allocation  and privatization of the resource,  as has happened in the Qualicum  Indian fishery, and the commercialization of Indian fishing. This  provoked the longest debate of the  conference and resulted in a resolution 'condemning. 'the.., federal  "government' for" its actions at  Qualicum, which introduced  ��� privatization of the resource along  the lines of the Pearse Report and  opened up a race-oriented division  in the fishing industry with no  prior consultation with the commercial fishermen.'  Debate stessed that the real issue  was not one group's rights against  another's,   but   the   necessity  of  recognizing Indian rights as well as  safe-guarding the rights of non-  Indian fishermen.  Further resolutions regarding  allocation of the resource demanded that the government negotiate a  treaty   based   on   the   principles  agreed upon by Canada and the  U.S. in June, 1971, and that each  country   harvest   only   its   own  salmon; where it was impossible toy  avoid intermingling of stock an-  equitable balance should be struck^  between the interceptions of both"  countries, based on reducing rather.  than increasing interceptions; that;.  conservation   be   the   overriding  principle. M-  The   workshop   focusing   on"  habitat   protection,   salmon:  enhancement   and   enhancement;  through   management   (shutting  down or cutting the commercial  fleet)   condemned  the   proposed  federal fisheries policy of *np net  loss'. This policy implies that a fish  habitat may be destroyed if it. is  somehow replaced somewhere else  to avoid a 'net loss'. But could this  not. result in loss of species and  quality of habitat?  Salmon enhancement was seen  as a priority, and the workshop  demanded a commitment of $200  million over five years in inflation-  protected dollars to rehabilitate all  salmon runs.  There was total opposition to the  concept of ocean ranching * and  privatization of the -fisheries  resource. The workshop insisted  that the fishery remain a common  property resource with ownership  by the people of Canada for the  use of the people of Canada. The  survival of the commercial fisherman and industry must be assured  by allocation of a fair share of the  total fishing resource. -���-���**���-  The -concept,, of- 'habitat  rehabilitation through management  on the grounds' (limiting  openings   and   reducing  time) demanded participation in  'an immediate and aggressive plan  of rehabilitation of salmon spawning and rearing habitat.'  The conference concluded with  the decision to send a delegation of  fishermen to Ottawa on February 5  to lobby for these demands.      ���;;  An unfortunate accident last week saw the new Gibsons fire truck severely damaged.  ���*i��ynB lmivbBy yvtM���'  Vedo still trying  Claire-Ann may yet  find berth on Coast  Once again the historic light-ship  the "Claire-Ann'Ms looking for a  permanent home and if economic  commissioner Oddvin Vedo has his  way, her permanent berth could  still be on the Sunshine Coast.  The brief, ill-fated sojourn of  the "Claire-Aiih" on the Sunshine  Coast last summer ended when she  was ordered to leave the government wharf in Gibsons after  overstaying the legal time limit for  mooring at the loading/unloading  facility. She was towed to Hutt  Island in Howe Sound where she  has remained.  Charges brought against the captain, Kent Staudinger, by the town  of Gibsons were dismissed because  the acting wharfinger, who had  laid the charges, had not been of  ficially appointed to his position by  Transport Canada from whom the  town leases the wharf.  Now two of the partners involved in the "Claire-Ann" have begun  foreclosure proceedings and she is  being offered for sale at a price of  $45,000.  According to Oddvin Vedo, the  captain, Kent Staudinger had made  several legal commitments to buy  out the other partners but was  unable to meet those commitments  in spite of the rent he is collecting  from those living aboard.  Vedo has written to various local  groups who might be interested in  purchasing the ship to serve as a  tourist attraction on the Coast. He  has sent letters to the Centennial  '86   Society,   the   Elphinstone  Pioneer Museum and the Expo '86  .committee giving them information about the "Claire-Ann",and  offering assistance in obtaining any  available government grants.  As the ship would be owned by*  local non-profit society he feels advantage could be taken of-botfu  NEED and Youth .Employment*:  grants. He would also advise approaching a corporate sponsor for'  money for the project. m-  He envisions the possibility of'-  the "Claire-Ann" being moored in *  False   Creek   as   the   Sunshine!'.  Coast's representative to Expb.j86c,  "We can't afford (b rent floor  space to promote' the Sunshine  Coast, but we could do it on the*  water," he said. Coast News, January 9,1984  ���J'HWJ  C~  A fitting  memorial  It was gratifying to note last week that Sechelt council has  made it a priority to find a suitable memorial for the late Miss  Helen Dawe, in recognition of her contributions to the village.  One of the most appropriate ideas put forward at council was  the eventual acquisition of a memorial museum to house the  massive collection of Sechelt documents, memorabilia and artifacts accumulated by Miss Dawe and other Secheit pioneers.  We applaud this worthy and appropriate long-term project,  and would suggest that a fitting, more immediate tribute  might be to rename the esplanade along the Sechelt beach front  after the woman who dedicated years of her life to preserving its  beauty. Miss Dawe often spoke of playing along that shoreline  as a girl, and while she was not always successful in preserving  the integrity of the beach against the encroachments of develop^  ment, what beauty it has is due in large part to her efforts.  Council is to be congratulated for its interest in preserving  Miss Dawe's memory and its prudent approach to finding a  suitable memorial.  A too hasty  letter  The apparent threat of outrageous ferry fare increases last  month certainly required quick and decisive action on the part  of local municipal officials, but the action of the Economic  Development Commission was, we suggest, a little too quick.  The commission sent a letter protesting rumoured cuts in  ferry service to highways minister Alex Fraser, dated December  22. The letter, obviously hastily prepared, was not only inflammatory, but was incoherent, disunified, redundant and grammatically unsound.  The Sunshine Coast Economic Commission is a valuable  organization and has contributed mightily to the Coast  economy, but writing to government ministers in such an ill-  considered form reflects badly not only on the commission  itself, but on the governing bodies of our community.  Watch this man  It seems to one observer, at least, that NDP leadership  hopeful Graham Lea may be a dark-horse candidate.  His remarks to a group of party supporters last Sunday in  Gibsons had a refreshingly frank quality and while the media  waxes thoughtful or ecstatic over more glamourous names, Lea  ' may be striking a note that party supporters have been waiting  for.  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  5 YEARS AGO  Newiy eiecied president  of the Royal Canadian  Legion #109 is Al Pajak.

Oral accounts and published journals of travelers and  .official explorers from Russia, Spain, Britain, and the United  States gradually made Europe and eastern America realize its  physical existence as part of the earth's surface. Missionaries,  surveyors, geologists, and others added to this knowledge  throughout the Nineteenth Century. Not until the first quarter of  the Twentieth Century, however, was the rainforest coast  "discovered" as a viable locale for literature. Then, Pauline  Johnson's "Legends of Vancouver" popularized the lore of the  aboriginal Squamish people. Isobel Ecclestone Mackay's "Indian  Nights" followed the trail blazed by the renowned poetess. Mar-  jorie Picthall, shy, sensitive, and deeply in love with her newly-  discovered world out west, compressed infinite riches into her  brief span of years. Tom Machines expressed both myth and  reality in his poetic and prose writings. Stuart Edward White  found time to add the farthest west to his itinerary of settings. '  Robert Watson based his "Gordon of the Lost Lagoon" on bits '  of folklore absorbed from his part-time home, Gibsons Landing,  A.M. Stephen brought history to life in his romantic books. Be*>k  trand Sinclair spent most of his adult life here, searching for the  ethos of loggers and fishermen in his ^Big Timber", 4,Potfr>  Man's Rock", and "The Inverted Pyramid". Hubert Evans, in1  "Forest Friends" and "A New Front Line", explored themes thj*fy|  were later to find full voice in his classic "Mist on the River!"./,  These writers, and others, placed the North Pacific Coast on the -y  world's literary map. Despite desolation and adversities, a ray df *  hope shone through all their works. They encouraged and rein  forced the realistic but positive optimism of their time.

We were comfortably esconced'  around, the woodstove in Jake's  kitchen, with cups of coffee and  pipes lit. Jake's low-key campaign  against my compulsive cigarette  smoking continues. Outside on the'  beach, great rolling waves crashed;  the wind howled, and rain battered  at the windowpane.  "What do you have in mind, '  Jake?" I waited comfortably while ���  my 'old friend':coru^iripltue-rith^f  storm outside before: continuing'/'3l-;  "Well," said Jake, "I wai-at a  public meeting recently. No big  deal. A small local issue that'didn't  really concern me much but I had a  free evening and thought it might  be interesting to 'see how we're  handling ourselves these days. To.  tell you the truth it was kind of  depressing."  > "In what way, Jake?"  ' "Most of the speakers had  themselves clearly classified before  they got up to speak. There were  the right wingers and there were the  left wingers. They got up and traded slogans back and forth at each  . other and before half an hour was  over they had got themselves so  mad at each other that the problem  they were supposed to ^meeting  about had got lost in the shuffle.  "It reminded me of that country  in Gulliver's Travels, I can't  recollect the name right now, but  you know the one. The kingdom,  was hopelessly split between the  Big-enders and the Little-enders."  "I remember it," I said. "They  spent their time in furious debate  about whether boiled eggs should  be cut open at the fat end or the  smaller."  . "That's it. We've developed  animosity and sloganeering to the  stage where the egg is in danger of  going uneaten while we argue  about how to start it."  "Give me an example, Jake."  "On the international scene the  biggest egg of all is the world itself  and survival of mankind on it. The  disarmament talks go on and on  while the armaments pile up. We  are talking endlessly about how to  do it and the chances are improving every day that we will never get  the chance to try. There is the expenditure of a great deal of passion  about the techniques that should  be used but the job never quite gets  started. Big-enders versus Little-  enders.  "Then there is our national  government. Trudeau himself  complicates the issue with his  Jesuitical desire to split philosophic  hairs and to swim upstream. If the  Big-enders are in the majority, he's  a Little-ender. If the Little-enders  are making ground, he becomes a  JJig-ender. It's kept him in power  for fifteen years but it doesn't cut  any eggs. '   .  "He got elected making pronouncements about the Just SocieT  ty and about the government having no business in the bedrooms of  the nation. We thought he was  talking about the liberty of thfe  private citizen; it turns out that he  meant that if you have to sejfyour .  bedroom furniture to buy groceries  it's not his problem. .  "The end result is that we have a  government and a would-be  government in Ottawa and neither  one of them has any idea how to  make this a viable country. Fifteen  years ago it was enough to be a  Trudeau man; today it's enough to  be anti-Trudeau. But in neither  case do the problems which bedevil  this country get any closer to being  solved."  ' "What about the provincial  scene, Jake?" -;   <���  "Do you have to ask?'* said  Jake. "The province is ''feeing"  rapidly to hell in a handcart and all  we seem capable of doing is hating  each other because we're Big-  enders or Little-enders. If half the  energy that goes into hurling insults across the floor of the  legislature in Victoria went into  solving some problems,'we'd all be :  a lot better off."  "You could be right, Jake. But  does this mean that you are opposed to parliamentary democracy?"  "Certainly not. It has one considerable advantage that I can see.  That is if you can periodically  change your government without  shooting anybody then it does  make continuing civilization at  least theoretically possible. But a  corrupt parliamentary. democracy  is not better than any other corruption. If power becomes the only  goal., if integrity and honour have  no role to play, then the constructive use of'power takes a back seat  to its retention."  The old-timer paused a moment,  and surveyed the storm outside.  "Civilization is a fragile thing. If  we don't learn that we all, Big or  Little-enders, share much more  than separates us, we are going to  find out what real trouble is. To  put it as simply as possible, if  nobody feeds the hens because  everybody's arguing about how to  eat eggs, we're going to find  ourselves without any eggs at all.  All of the excitment was not on  the basketball court this weekend  when the Chatelech senior boys'  basketball team travelled to Victoria for a basketball tournament.  On his return from the Island  Sunday, Chatelech coach Bob Corbett told a story about how the  Canadian army arrested four  juveniles who had allegedly broken  into the team's van.  Wey it wasn't exactly the Canadian army; butthe kids who were  qaught   red-handed   must   have'  thought it was.".'���';   ��� MMM MM" "'''  It seems that during a break in  the tournament Saturday, Bob  called Tony Brooks (the son of  Chatelech teacher Joe Brooks) who  is at Royal Roads in Victoria and  asked if the team could have a tour  of the academy. Tony invited the  team over and after parking the  van in the Royal Roads lot, the  boys were shown around. They  saw cadets rappelling out of  helicopters and working on a variety of military exercises and generally had an exciting visit.  As they were returning to the  van, coach Corbett was approached by five armed cadets who informed him that they had just apprehended four "juvenile delinquents". After his initial fears, that  the delinquents were team  members, were alleviated, the  cadets told Corbett that the culprits  had been seen rifling through the  van and when a squad of armed  cadets approached the vehicle, the  bandits high-tailed it into the bush.  As it turned out, two platoons of  cadets, also armed with rifles, were  out in the same woods on an  orienteering exercise. When their  officers were told of the escaped  youths,, they quickly organized  their units in a long line, surrounded the area and started a search.

She was as  regular a feature as a reporter and|[  took detailed notes of council pro-|g  ceedings. |f  With her incredible memory, shej��  was able to piece together details of|j  council business as this reporterfi  was never able to do. While I wasff  dozing through mind-numbingf  debates about sea walls, replotj  areas or building permits/Helen^  would be attentively scribbling |j  , each seemingly irrelevant detail. |t  It didn't take long for me to^j  realize that what I found dull, sheV^  saw as important. Helen would ask*;  me why I hadn't written about $  such and such an item from last^tl  week's council meeting. When IJ  would reply that it hadn't seemed|  particularly important, she would?  explain with remarkable patience  why it was important and give me a  history of the situation that would  often go back 20 or 30 years.  Invariably,   once   Helen   had  straightened me out on an issue, it  turned out to be important and  many  a  story   I   have   covered,  resulted from Helen's knowledge, i  What I know about the history W;  Sechelt, I owe almost exclusively to f  that amazing woman. j,m  Not long after we had struck u^V  our friendship, I was fortunatdtj-^  able to convince Helen to share hier j  considerable: collection <*��f' j  photographs with the residents of /  the Coast through the historic pic-/  ture feature on this page of oaf  newspaper. M  . Over the years we have been  lucky to have valuable contributois  to this feature such as Les Peter^K  son, but Helen was at first relucv^  tant to let her photos out,of hetjiM  possession.  I guess that after^'  while, when she realized that she*  had straightened me out as far h *  having some small understandirjg |  of Sechelt history was concerned, |  she came to trust me. - "'  |  Every photo Helen let us use was ���,;  accompanied by a concise and |  precise  description.

"���M-  ^ditor:  ^Having read Mr. George Mat-  Hiew's editorial comment on  roughness in minor hockey, I  >|��jiild like to make several com-  ijfeJiits. "  jSfhave been involved in minor  ifoekey for 10 years, and over all  i0k time I don't recall working  with Mr. Matthews. Perhaps this  \jrt>iild explain his ignorance of  rfijOor hockey rules and the reasons  rf^ them./Through years of exigence, the Canadian Amateur  I$Pj:key Association has determin-  ej|<that body checking is an integral  p|tt of the game of hockey for the  Ejantam Division and those above  ifl and in my opinion when it is  taken out of the game, the players  almost always resort to other  means of intimidating their opponents, such as spearing, butt-  ending, slashing, and otherwise extremely dangerous stick work.  The point raised by Mr. Matthews regarding the differences in  body size and weight among the  players .is a legitimate one.  However to suggest that body  checking is overly dangerous is  ludicrous. All possible protection is  given to the boys in the form of  necessary protective equipment  and strong refereeing in order to  prevent injuries. Every consideration is given to the bby's safety  when teams are formed and no boy  is expected to play in any league  where he cannot hold his own.  I have been involved in both  bodily-contact and non-bodily-  contact leagues and am sure that  more injuries occur when spirited  young players are forced to play  hockey with no bodily contact being allowed.  I feel that Mr. Matthews had  gone too far in his criticism of  something that he obviously has no  knowledge of. If he feels strongly  that minor hockey rules should be  changed in any way I offer him my  position as the manager of the  Bantam Division and wish him the  best of luck.  Barry Lynri  President asks for support  Editor,  MThis letter is written in response  to: your recent editorial comment  headed "Dangerous Roughness".  6n behalf of the executive of the  Minor Hockey Association, we  also do not condone needless "vindictive" or "vendetta" type play  suc-h as charging, slashing or unnecessary boarding. Steps are  presently underway to improve the  standard of play and if any parent  or interested person wishes further  clarification in this regard, we  welcome their attendance at our  next general meeting which will be  held on January 26, 1984 at 7:30  p.m. at the arena.  We would further comment that  this is during Minor Hockey Week  which runs from January 21-28.  Skookum  Our slogan this year is "Minor  Hockey is for the Player". With  that in mind, we would ask  everyone to take the effort to either  attend a minor hockey event  (Saturdays and Sundays) or to support our players by donating (time  or money)���-our raffle is still  underway with a grand prize of  $5,000 to be drawn in early  February. Tickets are only $20 with  a maximum of 600 tickets to be  sold. With odds of one in 600, we  think chances are a lot better than  one in 14,000,000.

In particular, I would  like to thank the management and  staff of the Sunshine Coast News  ��� and Cable TV for generously printing and broadcasting the work of  the CNIB and. more recently the  Eye Appeal Campaign.  Many thanks also g6 out to Tilly  Knowles and to the Lions Club of  Gibsons for again sponsoring .our  Eye Appeal Campaign. Thanks to  the diligent efforts of the Lions  members and generosity of the  citizens and businesses more than  $1,600 was raised which is being  used to the maximum in continuing  with our multi-service programs.  Again, on behalf of all the  CNIB, our blind and visually impaired jrfjfibsons^ I extend my  sincere thanks to the people of  Gibsons  Burt Johnson  District Administrator'  Central Coastal Region  Children need hope  Editor,  Security for our children and the  lessening of international antagonism must be paramount in  every parent's mind now at the  start of 1984. Yet to openly discuss  the real threat of nuclear conflict,  smacks of paranoia, that one has  lost control, lost his cool, gone  over the edge and so we stand with  a stiff upper lip unable to look our  children in the eye because we  know it's a lie. If we do talk on the  fringes of the problem we say "well  there is nothing we as individuals  can do", "it's our of our hands".  Well I for one believe I can do  something to influence world  governments and so can you.  All governments, east or west,  respond to public pressure if it is  strong and persistent. It is time we  the little people began to give  guidance to governments, to make  pur real needs known. I feel it must  be done in a sincere, non-militant  way in a medium that all men can  understand, regardless of their  ideology.  Surely then, there is no language  more universal than our youth. Put  names, faces and ages to the  estimated casualty statistics and  send them to the world leaders. It  must be impressed on them that the  only real importance, is ' our  children and a world for them to  live in. We must send our message  by the hundreds, the thousands. It  must come from the populations of  all countries, east, west or otherwise, but it must start here, in  Canada, in B.C., in Vancouver  and I want to dedicate my time and  effort and the image of my grandchild to get this message started.  Where  there  is. a determined  struggle, there is hope, and if we  haveMiope, we, can win. Let's give  dujrichildren, some, hope, let's give ,  thema tomorrow.      .      .  If'this, is similar to your thoughts  and you would like to help, please  phone 885-2030.  Dennis Gray,  West Sechelt.  Chamber apologizes  Editor  I received a call from the Town  Hall during December, as a taxpayer had phoned in to complain  about the poor display of  Christmas lights this season. The  Chamber of Commerce accepts  full blame for the poor display  which was due to a lack of funds to  replace the damaged bulbs. The  Town and B.C. Hydro did their  parts for which we thank them,  and if our plans to regain a.firm  financial footing are successful in  1984, we will endeavour to see that  the lighting display is fully repaired  this year.  Once again, we apologize to the  residents and visitors alike for the  shabby display we all had to look  'at. M' . ,  On a brighter note, the 1984  memberships are already coming  in. We thank those of you who  have already remitted, and request  all businesses and individuals  wishing to join or renew their  memberships to forward their dues  as soon as possible. Any enquiries  you may have regarding membership should be directed to Pat  Fromager at 886-2325. The annual  general meeting for election of officers will be held at the Marine  Room, Thursday, January 12,  1984 at 8 p.m.  P.R. Philpotts  President  Residents thanked  Editor,.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank the residents of the  Sunshine Coast in their support  against. the huge ferry fare increases. With the result of this support, there will now be only a  tolerable increase in passenger fare  and an actual decrease in auto and  driver fare (to $13 from $14.95  with the special tickets). Take ad  vantage of this special commuter  rate.  The SCRD is proceeding with a  ferry frequencies and rates to be  socio-economic impact study on  completed in the summer.

M  BIRDS  Bird watchers alert. American  robins were seen eating Holly berries the 28th of December and being watched by a dozen starlings  who thought they might be on to  something. Also seen off and on  this winter, a dark bro.wn bird,  streaked breast with large brown  spot in centre. Could this be a  Juvenile Oregon Junco? A Fox  Sparrow?  OBSERVATION  An observer in Hopkins Landing  last Thursday thought a three-  storey hotel was being floated into  the Sally Ann camp. It turned out  to be the ferry and why it was  checking the foreshore at that particular time is not known. The  observer thought that perhaps the  good news of commuter tickets  was to be broadcast by loud hailer  to the Coast community. "But  that's only my own. facetious  speculation," he said, and asked to  remain nameless.  At Gibsons Council  mot6rH"ehicle^ *  department  Increased business at the local  Motor Vehicle Department office  has led to an increase in monthly  commission payments by the Vehicle Licence Division of the Ministry  of Highways.  Gibsons council learned that the  fixed montly payment will increase  from $ 100 to $500. Frequency of  the payments will also be increased  from 12 to 16, thus alleviating cash'  flow problems at the end of each  quarter.

F���nBumSi<j��phou>  Maryanne's Viewpoint  Spending cuts hard  by Maryanne West  I've always been skeptical of any  government which claims to be  making substantial cutbacks in  government spending. Not because  I think these people are not sincere  in their intentions but because I'm  sure its a great deal more difficult  than is generally supposed.  ��� The; following letter is perhaps illustrative^ of why the so-called .  .restraint/programme is not achiev- "  ing its objective of saving the taxpayers' mdtaey. Written by a  gentleman who describes himself as  ���{Visitor Program Manager, South  toast Region" it was carried in the  winter issue of the B.C. Naturalist  tbplear; up "the confusion over  ju^i'wKat|is'fhappening in Manning ���  ;N$SM--   '..'���'  ��� ; x^<x  "The; changes that have occur-*'  red are in who will now be providing the services to the park. Due  to the fact that Manning Park  Lodge and Restaurant are closed  for the winter, the park's summer  operation will continue to operate  as in the past.  "The Gibson Pass Alpine Skiing  Facilities and the maintenance of  the Nordic Ski Trails have been  leased on a one year park use permit to Messrs. Cook and Wilkinson of Princeton. They will ensure  that skiing opportunities continue  as in the past.  "The ambulance service  previously operated by Manning  Park staff will now be run by  Ministry of Health out of  Princeton. Five of the staff from .  Manning Park will remain in the  park to oversee the operations, and  additional.staff will be assigned to  Manning from the expanded park  office at Cultus Lake.  "Meanwhile, a consultant company, Thorne Stevenson and  Kellogg, has been hired by the  government to review the winter  operations of Manning Park, the  Lodge and the Restaurant, and to  recommend what facilities should  be turned over to the private sector  next year.  "The staff who were working at  Manning Park have all been re-  . assigned, to other duties in provincial parks throughout the Lower  Mainland, with fhe exception of  the five individuals mentioned  earlier.  ' "Does this sound like 'restraint'  to you? It doesn't to me. It looks  more as though the. operations  which make a return on the dollar,  i.e. skiing facilities are being turned  over for private profit rather than  providing income to help lad-  minister the parks system. The ambulance service is now paid for by  Health, not Parks, no saving there;  the Parks staff are all still there,  supervising or reassigned, no sayings there.  "I don't dare think what the  consultants will cost us,.but you'd  have thought the parks branch  which has been running the operation for years would have the  figures and be able to make such  assessments themselves.  "We all expect governments to  use bur tax dollars to the best advantage and not to waste them.'  We're all in favour of restraint in  government spending, but, this  makes no sense to me. Perhaps someone can explain?"  More letters  Retrospect slammed  ; Editor, M,,_   . t   f.:  ���.   What-was the purpose of the  1 selection \of photographs. entitled  ��� '$983 retrospective"? The reader  "assumes it is to show a sampling of  in$teworthy  local' events  of last  ; year. It is strange that only two of  : the 14 photos depict events which  ��� cdnnot be "construed as "nice": the  ; grounding of the "Tyee Princess"  .(a catastrophe only to the owner  iaftd crew), and the flooding at  ���Wilson   Creek,    (why   not   the  ! flooding that; virtually wiped out  | Orange Road and properties along  jit, closed the highway: and eventually gouged  a  hole  in   Lower  jRpad?).  f7~By following the Pollyanna  j Principle,' are you trying to conn  ���' vince us that 1983 was a Very Good  Year? What about the economic  and. political situations? They  played probably the biggest roles  on 1983's stage. There were no pictures of the BCGEU and Hydro  strikes and more noticeably none  of the education strike, a  phenomenon not seen on the Coast  since a one-day walkout in 1971.  What about the local Solidarity  Coalition, the Food Bank and the  Unemployment Action Centre?  You must have a photograph  somewhere of at least one of these  groups. With the troubled times of  1983, a broader cross-section of  photos would have been more  realistic.  You are printing a community  newspaper, not a travel brochure.

Good luck  Maureen���may you be happy in  your new post. ;  Don't forget the Ratepayers'  Association meeting tonight, Monday, January 9, at Welcome Beach  Hall. Everyone is invited tp attend.  Fans of the Halfmoon Hams will  be happy to learn that rehearsals  are starting for a brand new show  scheduled for some time, in the early spring. Nikki Weber is already  busy working . out .arrangements'  and the theme thisMime might well  be from the 1940s. We've already  done the .'20s and '30s,.so hot its  the '40s turn. There was some good  musical stuff from that period so it  should be fiiri.  Not much news from the Halfmoon area right now, but did hear  an interesting little story about the  Pender Harbour area. A friend of  ours from Vancouver was ori a  fishing trip to the area and  discovered that he had dropped his  wallet into the water from the boat.  The wallet contained a thousand  dollars in cash plus all his credit  cards, etc. He and his group were  staying at Lowe's Motel in Madeira  Park and when he reported his loss  to the owners they immediately lined up some diving gear for him to  have a search in the general vicinity.  , ���' ��� " rxx���>������'���  Despite all the efforts of  everyone concerned, he failed to  locate the valuable wallet. You can  imagine his surprise and delight  when, about week later he received  a phone call from someone in Burnaby saying that they had found  the wallet and would he care to  come and collect it. This he did,  and the wallet was returned to him  intact.  It seems that a man and his son  had gone fishing several days later  and the boy noticed something  shiny at the bottom of some  shallow water. He was able to  reach out and pick it from the bottom, and sure enough, there was  the wallet containing the thousand  dollars.  It was the owner's metal  fireman's badge which had  reflected in the sunlight which had  caused the fellow to spot if, and if  had been washed into the shallow  water by the tides. So there was  one fellow whose faith in humanity  was restored. He is not a wealthy  fellow who had a spare thousand;  he had cashed it to pay his bills and  rent, etc., so it was a godsend to  him to get it back. He also mentioned how great the folks were at  the motel and you can bet that he  and his friends will return to  Lowe's  The Halfmoon Bay brownies  and beavers are having a bottle  drive on Saturday, January 14  from 11 a.m. from Bayview to  Brooks Road.

Even though we  are good friends and have a high regard for each other, it  had never occurred to you that we could help each other.  We can.provide your needs every bit as well, if not better,  than those big stores.  When Jennifer asked me if we had such things as Mexican  and Oriental foods, I was frankly astounded, because as I  told you both, we carry a complete supply of ail the items  usually found in the large supermarkets.  Our business is not down so terribly, but we are having  some difficulty in making ends meet,���because of staggering increases in costs over which we have no control.  We can't pass these costs on because we must sell our  goods at a very competitive pricing structure. We even absorb the freight in from Vancouver. Freight does not get added to the selling price.  Financing   an   average   inventory   of   say   $125,000  -$ 150,000 requires gobs and gobs of money at a high cost'  at today's rates. We could easily do half again as mucty  business with the same dollar value of inventory,-���but we  held the broad selections to remain competitive with variety and selection.  I could go on and on delineating our problems, but I'm  sure you've got your own. You'll want what we've got to offer. The selection is good, the price is right and our staff is  down-right friendly.  Give us your business. I think we need each other.  ���*������?'���  :=3:  Regards,  Bill  "REALWIN"  K.L.D.

'  In theatre the Suncpast Players  begin the year with a studio night  in the Roberts Creek Hall oh the  28th of January. The evening will  feature four 20 minute original  productions by members' of the  North Vancouver Zone of Theatre  B.C., North Vancouver Community Players, Deep Cove Players,  West Vancouver Little Theatre and  Suncoast Players. v  At the end of March the Players  will sponsor the Second Annual  Young People's Drama Festival  which will run for four days, probably in Sechelt. The festival provides valuable performing experience for elementary and secondary school, students.  A highlight of the year will no  doubt be the French farcet "A Flea  in Her Ear" by Georges Feydeau  to be directed by Betty Keller, and  sponsored jointly by Suncoast  Players and Driftwood.Two. Betty  has won many kudos for her  writing, her teaching of creative  drama and her theatrical costuming skills.  Last year she directed two highly  successful shows, "The Little  Foxes" for Ensemble Theatre and  "An Evening with Pauline", based  on her own prize-winning  biography of Canadian poet  Pauline Johnson.  fyoast profiles  Rocky Zantolas  %  Stuhtman/Moviemaker  The quitting-time whistle blew  d the men came off the mountain.  The older guys took their  5time. The ybungbloods, still hoarding energy, came whooping and  leaping down the slopes in a mad  race for the homebound crummy.  .Rocky   Zantolas   led   the   pack,  ijjkmncing down the slash-strewn.in-  Hfine like an .uncoiled spring. A  ISS&raf -acrobat^ he enjoyed^- thV  rough-and-tumble of logging. But,  even at seventeen, he suspected  4iibao:rX''i  >^|Stili, working in the woods is ait,  |$bsy habit to fall into, particularly^  when you grow up on the Sunshine  'Coast where other options are few.  Rocky stuck it out for several years  until a brush with a lashing  haulback cable nearly crippled  fiiitn. That did it. Moving to Vanr  ^t|iyer, he enrolled in the Western  jjflnadian Stuntman's School; If he  Ms going to risk his neck, Rocky  ing it for some decent money! The  B.C. film industry was growing  busier by the year and.he liked the  prospect of working in movies. M  Stunting gave Rocky a chance to  fully utilize his native agility. He  learned how to take high falls,  drive vehicles under extreme-risk,  conditions and roll- with the punches in simulated fights. Rocky  graduated from the course with full  marks and, diploma in pocket, set  out to make his mark in the world  of films. It was a slow process at  first. The film market had hit a  M?

He  did  commercials  and  stage  work    for    the    Vancouver  Playhouse. Then the film business  picked up again and Rocky began  to get some better jobs. He rappell-  ed off a 180 foot rock face in:  CBC's National Dream; was shot  from a moving jeep in the remake X  of Journey. Into  Fear;  jumped  from a second-story balcony tb 'a  saddled  horse in  ah  unreleased!  western called Bounty Hunter and  even got to exercise another talent,  singing backup in ai TVmovie call- ^  ed Sunshine, filmed around the  Squamish area. Things were starting to look upM  Rocky might well have stayed  with the stunting side, of the  business had it not been for the ac- r-  cidentiri Seattle. A close friend and  fellow-stunt school graduate, Pat  ; Mldsen, was violently thrown  while making a biker movie, and '.  permanently paralyzed from the  waist down, It caused Rocky to do  some rethinking about the hazardous trade he had undertaken. By  now he had a wife and a couple of  young sons to consider.  Gradually Rocky began to phase  . out the more dangerous work. He  obtained a Teamsters card which  enabled him to drive lighting and  camera trucks in addition to the acting stints. It was a wise ploy and  he was seldom out of work from  this point on.  Over the last few years, Rocky  has worked, in one capacity or  another, on almost every major  film produced in B.C. In i��79's  Klondike Fever, he did one of his  last.niajbr stunt's that involved;be-  irig lassoed from a moving wagon  Bear Island, he worked as a second  unit driver captain and sang i^a  promotional short for the movie.  In A Man, A Woman and a Bank,  he worked as a special business extra, doubling for actor Paul  Mazurky. And in the recent film  rvfotheriode, he played a young  miner who gets Charlton Heston's  dander upMaiid is dispatched by  .: means -of' a Jbickaxe in the chest.  Fortunately, he survived the latter  ''experience.,;   .;_:;-���  M' SorrVeyears back, Rocky returned to the Sunshine Coast and now  lives in Granthams Landing. To  augment his income, he invested in  a large wardrobe truck which'he  rents out to various film companies  in addition to his* own services.  "They hauled Sly Stallone's  underwear around in it when he  was making First Blood, up in  ^Hope^' he jokes. ;-''M..-^;M;  When I spoke to him recently.

First, I'd like to wish you all a  Happy New Year and hope that  the Holiday Season hasn't left your  energies or pocketbboks depleted  beyond recovery.  In January there is little to do in  the garden; you could cut up your  discarded Christmas tree into small ^  pieces and use it "as a mulch for  acid-loving shrubs, roses, or as a  protective covering for bulb and  perennial beds. If your soil is sadly  ���  lacking in nutrients, and you didn't '  add to it in the fall, you could place  a layer of manure, seaweed, or  leaves over the garden beds now.  This, is a good time to give your  houseplants some care and attention. Gently wash those plants with  larger leaves, using a very mild  soap and water solution; this is  especially important if you have a  wood burning heater .which  releases a lot of soot and dust into  the air. Plants are unable to  breathe if their breathing pores are  clogged. For other plants with  smaller leaves, use a fine spray mist  once a week, remembering to spray  from below as well as from above.  Bring in your hyacinths, which  should have been outside since October, going through the cold  period necessary before indoor forcing.- When you bring the pots inside, there may be very small  .flower buds showing. Relieved.to  be in a more temperate climate,  they will-start to bloom immediately, but because they are still partially hidden in the soil, the flowers  will be a disappointment. Therefore, put the pots in a dark place,  though moderately warm, until the  stems are five or six inches tall.  Af��er this, put the pots into a warm  sunny window, keep them moist  and they will bloom in next.to no  time. After this, allow thefoliage  to continue its growth; you may  plant these bulbs outdoors in the  early days of spring.and they will  grow for years, though with a  smaller flower. ..MM..,  If you are missing the crunchy  greens of the summer garden, .this  is the time of year to make sprouts;  they're easy to grow-, and are chock  At the Arts Centre  Painter opens Centre season  Granirer   is   the   artist  IP start the 1984 season at  trje--ftf$|Centre in Sechelt; .-...''���''.  |;f Gi^cj^ihg up in Rumania, study-  <ui& artM in   Israel ��� and  living  in  1P<)_____________  Canada since 1965, Pnina  Grariirer'js art represents, after  many changes, her personal fusion  iyf the Eastern European culture of  her childhood  and the Western  Church  THE UNITED CHURCH  OF CANADA  Sunday Worship Services  ST.

Many seeds and beans  lend themselves to this process;  mung beans, garbanzos, whole  dried peas, lentils, soy beans,  alfalfa seeds, wheat berries, flax,  sunflower seeds, mustard seeds.  Mustard seeds are quite'spicy and a  few make a zesty addition to a  winter salad.To sprout any of the  above: Wash' a quarter cup of  seeds, cover with lukewarm water  and stand over night. Drain, conserving the water, which you may  add to soup or stews, or use to  water your houseplants. Rinse the  seeds, place two or three tablespoons in a sterilized quart jar,  cover the top with cheesecloth or  some other kind of mesh, fasten  with an elastic band, and make  sure the seeds are drained completely. Lay the jar on its side so  the seeds form a thin layer, and  leave in a warm, humid place.  Three times a day rinse the seeds  with tepid water, draining  thoroughly each time. Keep the  seeds moist, but not wet. Excessive  moisture will encourage rot and  fermentation. Most seeds or beans  will sprout within three to five  days. You may place the jars.in the  sunlight for a few hours to encourage green growth, and then  rinse thoroughly with, cold water.  Refrigerate. Don't let any sprouts  grow for too long; they'll become  tough and unappetizing. Some of  the larger beans will benefit from a  moment or two of blanching  before use; if you are using wheat  be. iiti to add to bread, grind first.  One important note: soy beans  should be steamed for five minutes  before eating; raw, they contain an  enzyme which" inhibits the absorption of protein in the bodyi  Sprouts are a good substitute of  lettuce in sandwiches and salads;  use in Chinese vegetable dishes,  soups, even in omelettes.  Finally, a reminder about two  courses offered through Continuing Education in the coming months.

Katimavik  helps out  Seven members of Katimavik,  the Canadian youth volunteer programme, are working in Sechelt on  projects requiring attention in the  village.  The Katimavikers began last  Wednesday, cleaning up Kinnikin-  nick Park and are expected to provide needed labour at the government wharf and the airport.  Smoking seafood full time may  sound like an unusual venture for  an ex-tCalgary consultant and a  Coast contractor, but Art Giroux  and Bob Williams seem to have hit  .upon a recipe for success in their  new business, SunCoast Smokers.  Giroux arid Williams began  operations in West Sechelt in mid-  October after a period of preparation using materials made available  by the Department of Fisheries and  with the'help and advice of B.C.  Packers. Experiments with all  stages of the smoking process led  them to develop their own cure  solution using sugar and a variety  of spices, and their own smoke  produced from sawdust that is a  blend of alder and six different  hardwoods.  "We'll try smoking anything,"  says Giroux. Already the former  Caigariah has his name on the new  menu of the Wharf Restaurant for  his smoked baby salmon, a product they receive from the Tidal  Rush Marine Farm on Nelson.  Island. They also smoke salmon  sides to become the delicacy,-Lox,  salmon bellies and backs for pub  munchies, as well as oysters and  prawns. They have smoked herring  and cod for custom orders.  At SunCoast Smokers, every effort is made to use local sea products.- In addition to "the baby  salmon from Nelson Island,  Giroux and Williams buy salmon  from boats in Pender Harbour,-  oysters from Sechelt Ocean Farms  in Sechelt Inlet, and Harmony  Seafoods in Jervis Inlet, and  prawns from George Primrose of  Sechelt:  Sports fishermen can have their  catch smoked at SunCoast  Smokers for $1 per pound.  The process used in the smoking  is a 'cold smoke' process with the  temperature in the smokehouse'not  rising above 50 degrees Fahrenheit.  The results they get seem to justify  the extra steps taken.  After an extensive preparation  process, the fish is smoked for 48 .  hours, m  "That's three times longer than  is    done    in    big    automated ���  smokers," says Giroux. "They  mostly use alder smoke which we  find too strong and harsh."  While recognizing that more  time must go into promotion,  Giroux and Williams are still spending considerable -energy in experimentation in production. They  now want to make a dried, chewy,  jerky-like smoked salmon belly  called 'beleke'. Beleke would be  Sechelt  to borrow  Sechelt council last week gave  three readings to a by-law which  would see the village borrow  money to pay its bills in anticipation of the receipt of taxes. Like  Gibsons, -Sechelt property taxes  have been coming in slowly  through 1983, and clerk-treasurer,  Malcolm Shanks, told council that  the village may run out of money  as early as mid-January.  Most municipalities raise funds  by borrowing until taxes are collected, but this year the borrowing  is occurring earlier than usual.  Council is expected to give final  approval to the by-law at its next  meeting.  Bar plan  scotched  Pre-clearance for a class 'A' li-  quoi licence for Sun-Cove Resort  Inc. has been withdrawn by the  Ministry of Consumer and Corporate Affairs.  The pre-clearance licence, for a  liquor outlet at the corner of  Wharf and Anchor Roads in  Sechelt, had been held by Henry  Hall, but as no progress had been  made towards the facility, the pre-  clearance was terminated.  The termination means that  other liquor outlet developers are  ' now at liberty to apply to the Liquor Control and Licencing  branch for pre-clearance for class  'A' licences.  processed for two weeks in a  smaller smokehouse using smoke  from an alder wood fire rather  than sawdust.  The reception accorded the product of SunCoast Smokers in the  various restaurants and fish  markets seems to confirm that it is  indeed superior.  "We were kind of timid at  first," says Giroux, "but now we  walk into a new place and tell them  that no matter where they are currently getting their smoked salmon,  ours is better. We invite them to  taste and compare and have never  lost yet."  In Vancouver, salmon from  SunCoast Smokers is served at The  Hyatt Regency, The Cannery, and  The Salmon House. .It is sold at  Sea Kist Salmon Sales on Granville  Island.  On the Sunshine Coast their products are served at the Wharf  Restaurant, Pebbles, The Heron,  and at the Wakefield Inn. They  have also done custom smoking for  The Village Fisherman.  "We intend to continue to improve our products," says Giroux,  "and that means strict quality control. We don't want to get too big  or the quality could slip."  Anyone who would like to try  out the wares of this successful new-  Coast   venture  should  call   Sun-'  Coast   Smokers   at   885-9802   or  885-2515. .

'  Thus the former president of the  Alberta Medical Association, who  is a director of the Canadian  Medical Association, explained  ! one of the most noteworthy conversions since St. Paul hit the road  for Damascus.  Dr. Wally Mydland was commenting on the about-face of the  Federal Conservative. Party in  deciding to support the new  Canada Health Act���the bill that  will impose penalties on provincial  governments that allow user fees  and extra billing by doctors.  By officially attacking these two  practices, the bill is seen as a small  ��� step   towards   saving   medicare  ':;'  which is faced with serious erosion.  The Conservative Party has, of  course, been against medicare since  Day One. They fought the idea#  when it was first raised by CCF*  members  of parliament  in   the  1930s. They fought government  hospital insurance when it was introduced in Saskatchewan in, 1948.  , They fought universal medicare in  j( 1962 when it was first brought in,  i, again in Saskatchewan. They back-  ^(csd the:;dQlOors.,who.engaged.in a  strike hi ah effort to prevent the  CCF government from proceeding  with the plan.  They have remained hostile ever  since. Indeed, it has been those  provinces with Conservative  governments (including British  Columbia's under the name Social  Credit) who have been the major  cause of the erosion of medicare.  Why then did the federal Tory  caucus suddenly decide to support  the Health Act?  Dr. Mydland, close to both the  medical establishment and the  Conservative Party, explains:  "If a party wants to be elected,  they can't be against  motherhood." He went on to  point out that medicare is a touchy  political issue that must be diffused.  However, if and when Brian  Mulroney becomes prime minister,  Dr. Mydland feels his fellow doctors and fellow conservatives need  not worry.  "When they get in power they'd  5  fix it up and make it right for us,"*  he assured. '���: "*!  Right for us? But would it be*  right for the millions of Canadians jj  who  believe  that   a  system  bf*i  universal medical insurance is a��'  fundamental right? Probably not. ij  The prospect of some future's  Conservative government disem-t>  bo welling medicare is as great to-��  day as it was before the Health Act i*  came before Parliament. The Con- _  servatives are just not telling  ���5  us. ij  They are taking the advice of their ^  who *?  I  i  finance critic John Crosbie  said: "If I told you what I would  do, we'd never get elected."  Let's   face   it.   Hypocrisy   is  hypocrisy.  Parents, need a break?

Around and about  in Gibsons  by Gwen Robertson, 886-3780  At long last, some top world  politicians are responding to the  numerous peace marches where the  message is clear.  When the courageous Dr. Helen  Caldicott elucidated the concerns  present in every thinking adult, the  path was made clear to resolution  in a compassionate and forceful  .manner. Other nations, having no  knowlege of Dr. Caldicott, made  similar demonstrations indicating a  very strong force for salvation, far  Surpassing the futile struggles between nations for power. What  hollow victory would result when  the territory gained would.be completely destroyed for years and  years. We are still.here. Halleluja!  Happy New Year, 1984.  Meanwhile, back in our own little territory, our struggle for survival continues on the Sunsine  Coast. Community development  plans are on their way but not soon  enough to save several small  businesses from going under.  Lower Gibsons is hard hit so loyal  patrons are making the effort Jo  maintain those remaining.  One warm-hearted effort was  that of Steve White who brought  music to that attractive combination of Henry's Bakery and Variety  Food Delicatessen. Along with the  notice in the Coast News, Steve  telephoned friends to let them  know there would be a Christmas  Eve sing-a-long. Several little  groups took time out from their  busy schedule and joined Steve,"  sang or listened to his accompaniment on the organ while enjoying  tea, coffee, delicious sandwiches or  cakes. Well done, Steve, and in the  true spirit of Christmas. Perhaps  other innovative schemes will be  sparked from this one.  In support of commuters���a  group not too visible. These hardy  residents play a very important role  in the economy of the Sunshine  Coast and the reason that they are  not too well known is that they are  absent i2to 14 hours at least five  days per week. During the winter  the commuters see their homes and  grounds on weekends only,  because it is dark when they leave  home and it is dark when they  return. You will see them on Saturdays, laying in supplies for the  week, paying their mortgages or  rents, maintaining their vehicles,  and all the other necessities.on the  time available, with money earned  in Vancouver, Richmond or Burnaby. ,  We need more of them.to keep  Gibsons alive and well.-  Watch out for electrical fires.  The automatic shut-off on my  toaster oven did not. work and is  totalled. The wall behind is slightly  burn marked and the house smoke-  filled in seconds. Do not depend on  automatic' Invest in smoke  alarms���they are worth their  money several times over.  Dog costs queried  1     An offer from the town of Gib-  isons to Sechelt council to allow  : Sechelt to use the Gibsons animal  control facility for housing stray  animals   was   discussed   at   last  Wednesday's    Sechelt    council  meeting.  ''    The Gibsons offer asked that  Sechelt pay the $8 per day per  animal fee for use of the facility.  Alderman Bist said the fee seemed  somewhat excessive considering  that a person on welfare is expected  to get by on $10.20 a day. That an  animal should cost almost as much  to feed and house didn't seem  reasonable, suggested Bist.  Council will consult further with  Gibsons officials before considering the offer further.  *  Steak, , Piztii ���&��� Sfrtighettj  Cedar Plaza, Gibsons  (formerly the Great Canadian  Dough Factory)  will be  Opening  FRIDAY  Jan.  Come join us for steaks,  Italian dishes & pizza.  wsmim  by the Rev. Clarke MacDohald  Perhaps more than any other,  the Christmas ^season reminds us  that the peace for which we have  been working this past year is not  simply the absence of war, but the  peace with justice that is embodied  in the Hebrew concept of shalom.  Our efforts to reverse the arms race  are based,: not only on the  catastrophic effects of war, but  also on the catastrophe that results  - the legacy of malnutrition,  disease, illiteracy and despair in  many parts of the world - when  scarce resources are diverted from  social purposes to military purposes.  From its beginning, Project  Ploughshares has sought to. link  disarmament with development,  and I would like to take a few  minutes of your time to report on  recent activities of the Project in  this field.  Last summer, for example, Project Ploughshares staff and  volunteers operated . the "highlyM  successful 'Peace and Justice Coffee House' at the World Council of  Churches Assembly in Vancouver.  Working with groups from Asia,  Africa, Europe, Latin America  and North America, Ploughshares  staff published the 'Vancouver Appeal* on peace and justice and  presented a programme of  speakers, panels, debates, music  and drama throughout the  Assembly.  During the year, Ploughshares,-  staff participated directly in the  design and implementation of one  of the first projects of the United  Nations-based World Disarmament Campaign and helped to  launch an international network of  adult educators concerned about  education   toward   peace   and  justice. ���   '.._ -���;.: >M-ir->-vM  With the support of the many  Ploughshares Associates across  Canada, the Waterloo office of the  Project has now developed one of  the most comprehensive resource  and documentation . centres on  peace and justice in the country.  The centre contains up-to-date  resources on trends in the nuclear  arms race, disarmament negotiations, .alternative security initiatives, the international trade in  conventional weapons, the Canadian arms industry and others.  Staff are currently developing a  computer data base of information  on Canadian military production,  sales and government subsidies.  This resource centre is the basis  for the development of reliable information on a broad range of subjects and the publication of a variety of pamphlets, books and  booklets,1 resource kits and audiovisual materials. In the past two  years alone, over 100,000 copies of  these materials have been requested  by groups and individuals across  the country. Recent additions include: Walking from the Nuclear  Nightmare, a slide-tape show;  Preventing Nuclear War, a series  of five cassette tapes and accompa-  . nying   written   materials;   World  Military and Social Expenditures,  1983; and pamphlets such as  Canada and the Nuclear Freeze, A.  Guide to Cruise and "Pershing II  Missiles, and The Soviet Threat.  Last May, James Lorimer & Co.  published the Ploughshares-  produced book, Canada and the  Nuclear Arms Race.  Much more remains to be done.  As part of their ongoing efforts te  inform and educate Canadians  about these issues, Ploughshares  staff and volunteers are planning a  number of special projects in 1984:.  - .a joint undertaking with other  peace and development education  groups to make peace and justice a .  major issue in the next federal elecM  tion campaign; M  - working with Canadian church;  leaders in preparing /well-;  documented proposals on Cana-;  dian foreign and defence policies; -  - expanding and improving the:  distribution" of Ploughshares:  resource materials across Canada,;  ��������� Ii "  fywwm Pew Sp&dd  15% Off our already low price  Caff 809-21 SO tor ahappolntmant  with Ingrld or Joan.
