Array i LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  ParEEamsnt Buildings  i VICTORIA, B.C.  I V8V 1X4  85.4  ������#?'  :-#i~--*"  It was old home time at Shorncliffe last week when incumbent MP Ray Skelly, left, and his brother Bob,  the newly elected leader of the B.C. New Democrats, unexpectedly ran into Mrs. Pauline Provan,  secretary of the residents' council. Mrs. Provan used to live 'just around the corner' from the Skellys  when Ray and Bob were growing up in New Westminster. Despite the age gap, all three had attended the  same neighbourhood school. During the same visit to the intermediate care facility in Sechelt the MP and  his brother also met a sister of their aunt, Mrs. Janet Ives. Administrator Howard Webster gave the  politicians a tour of Shorncliffe which they found a most impressive facility. _joh��� Burnside photo  Proof of need  Food bank elegibility  There will be distributions at  both the Sechelt and Gibsons Food  Banks this Wednesday, August 15,  and because of high demand and  short supply hew criteria have been  introduced for those who wish to  partake of the service.  vA^heM^h^  '��� nd#?^iecessaufy to show <'prpof of  need" in order to qualityfor food  goods, and this may be done by  showing the form or a photocopy  of the form which comes with a  GAIN cheque or a green UIC card.  Seniors may show their Phar-  macare card once and then will be  noted as eligible for all future  distributions, as may anyone with a  total disability pension card.  "We've been to seminars in  greater Vancouver, and all the  food banks there require proof of  need," commented Maria  Lwowski. "But believe me, if  you're on welfare you qualify. It's  no fun."  Donations to the Sechelt bank  are down 50 per cent this summer,  with most coming from labour  movement organizations. One  hundred and twenty-seven families  were helped in July. "They just  had to take what they could get,"  said Maria. Two hundred and  eighty-eight families are listed with  the bank, but some manage to;get  occasional part-time work and  don't need assistance all the time.  Sechelt Food Bank is lack of a permanent bmiding space put of.  which to operate. "We're  operating out of the back of a  truck right now," said Maria.  "What do we do when it starts to  rain and where do we store stuff?  There must be someone in Sechelt  with empty office space who would  like to write off the value of that  space as a charitable donation tax  deduction." All money donations  to the food bank also receive tax  deductible receipts.  The food bank truck will be outside the Sechelt Senior Citizens'  Hall this Wednesday from 1 to 3  p.m., or until everything is gone.  Recipients are requested to bring  their own bags, and anyone with  extra garden produce can either bring it to the truck, or call Maria at  885-5532 and she will gladly come  and pick up, pick or pull it for you.':  Things are slightly different at  the Gibsons Food Bank, where the-  same documents indicating "proof  of need" must be shown, but  where additional criteria must be  met as well. A family's total mon-  hydroMahd 'telephohg^(iipf Uf $12)  deducted from it; that sum is divided by four, and then by the  number of people. If that figure  leaves at least $25 per week per person for food, the family is not  elegible for food bank services.  There are exceptions and extenuating circumstances, such: as  car insurance to pay, a large bill  which must be paid, etc.  "This is an emergency service,"  said Priscilla Brown on behalf of  the food bank. "It's not to be used  as a regular service. Donations  have dropped, and that's why we  have to do it this way."  The Gibsons Food Bank  operates out of the old, firehall on  Gower Point Road, and will be  open this Wednesday from 1 to 3  p.m. Call Cassandra at 886-2425  for information or to make a donation.  Centennial Society opposed to  Theatre site change  by Dana Sheehan  The Gibsons Centennial '86  Society has decided to leave the  theatre as part of the new proposed  recreation complex in upper Gibsons.  The project, at an estimated cost  of one and a half million dollars,  would see the theatre as a part of  the recreation complex, which  would include an addition to the  curling rink, handball and racquet-  ball courts, a banquet hall with kitchen facilities and various meeting  rooms.  Opposition to the upper Gibsons  site, at Thursday's meeting,  declared that the lower location  would be more beneficial with its  close proximity to the marina and  hovercraft and would provide a  much more theatrical and artistic  setting. The society, however, felt  that because the project would be  built in stages as money becomes  available, the upper Gibsons site  with its shared parking facilities, is  more feasible.  Allen Huggins Thorburn Architects from Vernon have completed the preliminary drawings for  the complex. Present cost is  $1,400, with total cost for the final  drawings and model to be $6,000.  It was suggested by Barry Boulten  that the Centennial '86 Society ap-  proach    town    council    for  preliminary approval before the  final design is prepared. It was also  decided that the committee should  approach Gibsons town council  with the request that due consideration be given to the Centennial '86 project when reviewing  other recreational and cultural proposals.  The B.C. Lottery foundation  and both federal and provincial  grants are currently being solicited  for funds.  Membership fee for the Centennial '86 Society for 1984 is $6.  Those who paid a $12 fee for 1983  are welcome as members for 'this  year.  SCRD ponders control  At the Sunshine Coast Regional  District meeting of August 9, a  presentation was made by the  SPCA requesting that the board  seriously consider assuming the  function Of dog control. Dr. Perry  speaking for the SPCA suggested  there were two methods of accomplishing this.  Plan 1 would see the regional  board passing an animal control  by-law which would be enforced by  an employee of the SCRD who  would remove troublesome  animals and have them destroyed  after holding them for a determined period while attempts would be  made to find homes for animals  which were lost or stray.  ' Plan 2 would involve assuming  an official dog control function  from the Ministries of Agriculture  and Municipal Affairs. This would  make available from the provincial  government a $10,000 "start up"  grant and a joint sharing of losses  to a preset maximum for a period  of three years.  Dr. Perry, strongly convinced of  the need for such a control program asked, "Are we to have a  fatal accident before something is  done?" Others present. detailed  how chicken and livestock had  been killed, a small car damaged  and a motorcycle driver injured by  dogs.  Chairman of the board Jim  Gurney responded to the petitioners, "The board is sympathetic  to your report and it recognizes  there is a problem with dogs."  However, he did express concern at  the difficulty in estimating accurate  costs for an efficient dog control  program.  -\  Revisions possible  The identifying cards or notes left by your enumerator were left  only to obtain your name for the voters' list.  Although door to door enumeration is over, revisions and additions continue until Wednesday/August 15, which is the last day to  get your name on the voters' list.  Candidates? viewpoint  Election  One of the primary functions of a community newspaper prior to an election is to serve as a vehicle for the expression of the views of the prospective  candidates. To that end we have asked 10 questions of the three major  political party candidates and will publish their answers in this and the next  two editions of the Coast News.  Our own limitations prevented us asking these questions to the others running in this riding. However, if they wish to comment on any of these topics  we will attempt to publish their responses prior tp election day.  As of publishing time we have not received any responses from Mr.  ��� Michael Hicks, Conservative Party candidate.  c.What specific projects would your  party undertake to create local jobs  on the Sunshine Coast? Hbw  would these be paid for?  ' Wayne Nesbitt, Liberal:  Specific projects to create jobs. I  <��� am not in the "O promise me"  game. I have been approached to  date regarding three projects - twc  public and one private. After further investigation I would be more  than pleased to try and have the  necessary public funding allocated.  , Prime Minister Turner has said,  <" and I agree with him, that there  <- will be no tax increases other than  "those already scheduled!  There-  _ fore, funding for these projects will  y come from a reallocation, of funds  I from other, areas of Canada. In ad-  ,.dition to public projects I believe  * we must, arid will, increase the opportunities and environment  for  ; small business to become established and flourish.  Ray Skelly, NDP:  ; Forestry:  Reforestation of the Sunshine  , Coast area; seedling nurseries; intensive silviculture; small contracting on road access, bridges, fire  protection.  Salmonid Enhancement:  Stream clearing and stream spawning reconstruction;  small stream  enhancement.  YoutrEmployment Initiative:  1.5 tfillion nationally to employ  ~K,^younj^op^  i yinciai governments and industry  to participate in cost sharing; affirmative action program to increase  employment   opportunities   for  women; reducing federal revenues  to encourage early retirement to  create job openings for young people.  Part 2:  The petroleum incentive program  to be cancelled and revenues  redirected to job creation (1.5-2.0  billion per year); Canadian ownership special charge-account funds  redirected to job creation (1.0  billion per year); excess profits tax;  collection of deferred corporate  tax; redirecting social assistance,  cost sharing dollars to early retirement projects.  What effects do you think high  unemployment is having on our  youth?  Wayne Nesbitt, liberal:  The effects of unemployment on  our youth are all negative. There is  a loss of confidence, a loss of will,  a loss of hope, a loss of faith in  their country. There is increased  tension in the home and a real feeling of hopelessness.  Ray Skelly, NDP:  Delay the setting of lifetime career  plans and goals; rising costs of  education have denied opportunities for education; in some  cases broken morale. Youth  employment, education and training must be a top priority  Would your party make changes in  the personal income tax and/or  corporate tax structure to finance  its programs?  Wayne Nesbitt, Liberal:  No. Prime Minister Turner has  said that there will be no tax increase other than those scheduled  to be effected.  Ray Skelly, NDP:  Over the years the burden of tax  has shifted from corporate tax to  personal tax. That burden has been  further shifted down the income  scale to lower and middle income  Canadians. In addition the greatest  difficulty with the taxburden is the  impact of direct regressive taxes  such as sales tax, excise tax, import  duties on low and middle income  Canadians.  Tax reform must proceed immediately in the next parliament:  The key principles to be considered  in restructuring the tax system are  as follows:  1. Mechanism to restructure the  economy. The tax system must be:  used to influence the structure and  operation of the Canadian  economy.  a) expand investment in Canada in  projects useful to Canada.  b) provide disincentives. to unproductive investment (i.e.  takeovers) and provide a disincentive to the export of capital from  Canada.  2. Simplification of the tax system.  a) a flat tax charge on income  which increases as income increases.  b) reducing deductions and providing incentives through tax  credit.  3. Fairness.  a) the tax burden must be placed  back in a fair manner onto the cor-:  porate and upper income sectors.  b) the tax assessment auditing collection and appeal system must be  revamped to conform to the commonly accepted principles of  justice.  Candidates  Everyone is invited to an all candidates meeting which will be  held Wednesday, August 15 at 8 p.m. in the Elphinstone gym.  The focus of the meeting will be on "Jobs and the Economy".  Candidates will be asked to address the following questions in their  opening statement: 1. What is the cause of unemployment? 2. How  do you propose to provide full employment - particularly in B.C.  and on the Sunshine Coast? 3. What proposals if any, do you have  to ensure that technological change is to our benefit, instead of being used to eliminate jobs and produce arms that threaten our very  existence? *  Six candidates have confirmed attendance at the meeting. They  are: NDP, Ray Skelly (Incumbent); Conservative, Mike Hicks;  Liberal, Wayne Nesbitt; Communist, Sy Pedersen; Green, Wayne  White; Social Credit, Robert Higgin.  Following the opening statement, candidates will answer questions from the floor. Afterwards there will be an opportunity for  people to have a cup of coffee and meet the candidates. The event is.  sponsored by the joint council of local unions.  Edith Iglauer Daly and Eleanor Wachtel, participants in the Writers' Festival held at Greenecourt last  weekend, took time out for a stroll through the Craft Fair held beside Shadow Baux Gallery.  ���Jotin Burnsidr pholo  SCRD - Gibsons  Joint water action  The Public Utilities Committee  reported at the Sunshine Coast  Regional Board meeting of August  9 that meetings between Gibsons  and the SCRD had determined that  their respective water systems needed improvement.  Main requirements for the  SCRD were more reservoir space  and increased pumping capacity.  Water flow is such that the storage  capacity can be increased or water  used up at a quicker rate. Thus  surplus water would be available  for other communities.  Gibsons needed improvement on  their waterlines as both the lines  leading in and out of the reservoir  are too small.  It was recommended that the  work's superintendent of Gibsons  and the SCRD review the lower  end water systems together and  that the engineering firm of  Dayton & Knight be asked to  prepare a schedule of available  surplus water.  The SCRD also agreed to supply  a maximum of $1,500 to the  Tuwanek Ratepayer's Association  for improvements to the "Goat  Trail" section of the waterworks  system, provided individual connections were upgraded. Coast News, August 13,1984  ^aaaamaalaaalMaamiaaaaaaaamtaalaaam  Premonitions  should be heeded  The exchange of letters between our local health officer and  upset citizens over the use of herbicides helps to point out a pro-*  blem facing 20th Century humanity: the dilemma of science vs  intuition.  As a scientist Dr. Lugsdin is defending the thinking of his pro-  fessionwhich believes that unless a fact can be proven beyond a  doubt in repeated and verifiable experiements then no scientific  truth is attributable to it.  However, considering the number of years it took doctors to  agree that smoking led to lung cancer and cholesterol to heart  disease, we question the wisdon of a purely scientific approach  to determining matters of life and health.  Citizens are upset because of an innate sense that too many  chemicals have already been introduced into our bodies and our  environment. They are suspect because too many instances exist  where life.and health are threatened by scientific excursion into  the human realm.  These premonitions should be heeded.  A telling  attitude  The letter from H. Wright deploring political candidates in  our local parades is perhaps understandable. The same objection to a political candidate appearing in the Roberts Creek  Daze Parade was overheard.  It is a sad reflection of the alienation and cynicism which is  the all-too-common attitude towards those who would seek to  represent us. May the day come when representatives or those  who would be will have earned an acceptance and a welcome  when they appear among us.  5 YEARS AGO  Fire believed to be caused  by human carelessness  claimed 12 acres of forest  near Lord Jim's Lodge on  August 9.

Bennett to open the  first annual Gibsons Sea  Cavalcade on August 21.  Don Lockstead, in his initial campaign for election,  says we cannot afford the  present government's sellout policy of B.C. resources.  "Under the present administration," said Lockstead, "we have remained a  province entirely dependent  on the export of natural  resources."  The two newly purchased  trucks for the Roberts Creek  Volunteer Fire Department  were received just in time to  save the original Gourley  home last week.  20 YEARS AGO  Councillor Bernel Gordon's drive to keep noisy par-  tygoers in Sechelt under control has resulted in his  becoming responsible for  studying an anti-noise bylaw.  Work has started on the  paving of the Lower Road in  Roberts Creek from Seaview  Cemetery to Seaview Market.  Gibsons council learns  that the name of the district  health unit will be the Alexander Mackenzie Health  Unit.  25 YEARS AGO  Mr. and Mrs. W.G. Peers of  Gibsons have undertaken to  help support an 11-year old  Vietnamese boy, Pham Van  Hoa��� under the Foster  Parent's Plan.  Canada is one of the  world's largest producers  and users of energy on a per  capita basis.  30 YEARS AGO  m A 52-pqund, nine ounce  spring salmon was caught  oflf Salmon Rock, last week  by an A. Thomson of Vancouver.  A controversy continues in  the letters to the editor of the  Coast News because someone signing the name "A  Mother" asked about several  teenagers leaving school  without completing it and  asked also about how many  made the grade.  In a reversal of the usual  procedure a swimmer was  launched to aid a rowboat in  difficulty near Gower Point  last week.  A. Gustavson on the  Enemark operations last  Wednesday had his hard hat  smashed and his shoulder  blade broken by a sapling  sheared off by a falling tree.  Gustavson remarked that  with ail the machinery in the  woods it was becoming impossible to hear the cry of  timber'.  35 YEARS AGO  A $75,000 paving program  is in the works for this year.  The work will include the  villages of Gibsons and  Sechelt.  No liquor store will be built  on the Sunshine Coast until  the question of location has  been cleared up. At the present time there are dual requests from Gibsons and  Sechelt for the liquor store.  Dr. A. Gordon of Shaugh-  nessy Hospital succeeded in  landing a 32-pound spring  salmon on the beach after he  went out forgetting to take  his gaff with him.

Utilizing as they did only natural foods for  fuel, and requiring comparatively little upkeep in shoes and harness,  these creatures worked with quiet efficiency. Loggers outfitted their  ox teams with burnished brass tack and musical bells. Farmers,  drayers, and woodsmen chose their Belgian, Clydesdale, and Per-  cheron horses with the eye of the connoisseur, and cared for them  with pride. Members of both species had individual personalities.  The experienced "skinner" became accustomed to working around  and adjusting to their whims and idiosyncrasies. Oxen were retired  from use when the last trees within easy skid-road reach of salt water  had been logged. Horses disappeared from highways and city streets  soon after trucks made their appearance; but they continued to  plough small plots of ground and to log small patches of timber until, gradually, they faded into history as work units.

L.R. .Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  It is becoming clear in retrospect  that the first mistake the Liberal  party made in this election campaign was in calling the election  when it did. It is well-nigh incredible that the party that had the advantage of calling the election did  so at a time when both its rivals  were far ahead of it in terms of  election preparedness.  How are we to explain the fact  that the Liberals called an election  that they were apparently totally  unprepared to contest? Surely a  November election, for example,  would have given John Turner a  few months to wear the prime  mm1sY^M:mantle"ancT'td; get h_ '  troops in order. Could it be that  Pierre Elliot Trudeau's final orgy  of patronage appointments were  .both his final gesture of derision to  the Canadian people, Trudeau's  farewell finger as it were, and  simultaneously a neat piece of  stiletto work between the shoulder  blades of the successor that he did  not like?  Turner's justification for making the appointments on behalf of  Trudeau, weak though it was, lay  in the fact that the patronage appointments would leave him with  less than a majority in the house. It j  would seem that he had two  choices. Let Trudeau make the appointments and call an immediate  election. Make them for Trudeau  and call a later election. Turner  elected to make them for Trudeau  and call an immediate election he  wasn't ready for, thereby achieving  the worst of both worlds.  It was a strange decision from a  man who came to office trumpet-  ting his competence as the prime  reason that he should lead us and  nothing the star-crossed Turner has  done since has improved his much  tarnished image.  Meanwhile all reports indicate  that the Conservatives are steam-  rolling along, scenting victory and  running a flawless campaign. The  only time Mulroney has been in  trouble came when he was caught  speaking with forked tongue about  Election at midterm  the patronage appointments and he  speedily extricated himself from  . the predicament by a candid and  forthright apology for his levity.  How much better off would  Turner have been if he had at once  acknowledged that his bum-patting  behavior was inappropriate from a  leader of the country on a public  platform, whatever his private proclivities might be Here again his  lame attempt to rationalize an obvious error in judgement does not  fill one with confidence.  To observe that the Conservatives are running a flawless campaign is not to be interpreted as  support tot the party. 'As fny friend  .Jake pointed out to me when  Mulroney first appeared on the national scene, much of what the  Tory leader says about removing  the bitterness which is one of the  principal legacies of Trudeau's  confrontational style, is an admirable and much needed emphasis on reason and conciliation.  There is a chilling vaguenss about  the Tory economic intentions,  however, and an even more chilling  vagueness about their international  policy.  Despite the slick electoral operation and Mulroney's smooth  charm, the Tory party of Canada  has a high proportion of dinosaurs  whose thinking has barely made it  into1 the nineteenth century let  alone the late twentieth. As Jean  Chretien has accurately put it, not  all of the Conservaties in Ottawa  are dinosaurs, but all of the  dinosaurs are Conservatives. Mind  you, in recent weeks the Liberal  party itself has begun to look like  the biggest dinosaur of all.  With such hidebound reactionaries as John Crosby and  Sinclair Stephens, likely heavyweights in any Tory cabinet, there  exists a very real possibility that the  Canadian people will wake, up after  election day to discover they have  given the reins of government over  to those whose economic inclinations are to tighten the screws on  the general public after the vote, in  the, manner of Bill Bennett. It  could also soon discover that it has  elected a party which, anxious to  retain'a so-called special relationship with the U.S., will slavishly  support a demonstrably dangerous  American foreign policy.  Of course, Ed Broadbent is  fighting by far the most decent and  relevant campaign of any of the  three major party leaders. He is  staying away from the mud-  slinging and addressing himself to  the issues. Unfortunately, Canadians who want a change are persuaded that the only possibility of  reid change open to them is unattainable and Broad bent's brave  and   decent   campaign'  will   re  establish his party's standing in the  next parliament but advance it no  further towards the long-term goal  bf government.  Be that as it may, for my money  a Canadian parliament which had  Conservatives in power ahd social  democrats in opposition would be  a healthier place. The endless  murky obfuscation of Canadian  Liberalism has had its day. I, for  one, hope that the strangely  hapless Prime Minister Turner will  blunder on through the second half  of the campaign and that the lesson  Canadians will teach the cynical  Grits will: be thorough enough to  reduce to the status of third party  rump. They deserve no more.  Paper cranes  and missile cones  At Sechelt  Sea is our season; neither dark nor day,  Autumn nor spring, but this inconstancy  Thar yet is continent; this self-contained  Organic motion, our minds ocean  Limitless as thoughts range, yet restrained  To narrow beaches, promonotories  Accepting her in silence; the land's ear  Forming a concave shell along the sands  To hear sea's shuffle as she leaps in gear  Spuming her poems upon our ribbed hands  Crying against our poor timidity;  0 come to bed in bedding water, be  Swept to these arms, this sleep, beloved and proud!

We  could not not do this! We were  pushed to this by all our lives. Do  you see what I mean? All our  lives." The voice was gentle yet  strong and carried to the farthest  corner of the hushed courtroom.  "When I say I could not do this,  I mean, among other things, that  with every cowardly bone in my  body 1 wished I hadn't had to enter  the GE plant. I wish I hadn't had  to do it." M  Sweat dripped from the creased  brow; face thin, strong jawed,  brown eyes looking directly, intently at the jury. Short gray hair combed Roman style, crowning a slim,  erect body, plaid shitted.  The speaker: Daniel Berrigan,  member of the Jesuit order for 42  years. The occasion: the trial of the  Ploughshares Eight - he and seven  other men and women who on  September 19, 1980 entered a GE  plant in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania and there proceeded to  hammer and dent the nose cones of  two   Mark   12A   thermonuclear  missiles, symbolically turning them  into ploughshares.  Their story is grippingly told in  the film "In the King of Prussia"  which was shown as part of the  Hiroshima Day activities at the  Arts Centre in Sechelt.  Also as a result of that day and  hanging in the Arts Centre were a  dozen or so multi-coloured paper  cranes, fashioned out of an intricately folded sheet of paper  -origami style, and suspended  delicately and gracefully.  Those paper cranes remind me  of the peace movement, a mobile  multi-faceted organization, fragile  in its lack of structure yet  undeniably present and visible.  The commemoration of the  thirty-ninth anniversary of the  atomic bombings of Hiroshima  and Nagasaki was quiet, low key  and sparsely attended - in Sechelt  and seemingly across Canada, a  sharp hiatus in popular participation.  That is sad; and also unrealistic  in the face of what is happening.  One can make excuses: summertime, the long weekend, etc., etc.,  but excuses are merely emotional  responses to explain what one  doesn't want to face logically.  An overflow crowd attended the  Arts Centre birthday party. People  have been lining up to see "Indiana  Jones", a movie replete with  violence and "macho" values, the  shopping mall parking lots are filled and I won't say anything about  the bingo crowds. People are  around and willing to participate in  what they see as important and attractive.  Rather it's a question of  priorities, that's all and presently,  involvement in peace activist events  is low on people's scale of importance. That is unfortunate and it is  exactly what individuals and  governments who promote  militarism count on.  Reacting emotionally to the fear  of nuclear annihilation is a start  but emotively produced action cannot be sustained over long periods;  interest dies and participation  wanes.  But the assembly lines keep rolling and the death machine continues its horrendous output. Since  April, when over 100,000 individuals walked for peace in Vancouver, I would estimate world  production of new thermonuclear  weapons to be approximately 600,  a combined destructive M'punch"  three times as powerful as all the  bombs dropped in the Second  World War. That many new  weapons in just three months.  What has to happen is that we  cease our amatuerish and sporadic  approach to peace activism and  become professionals - where logic  and reason fuel our involvement,  tempered but not dependent on  our emotional perception of the  dangers of nuclear war. Only then  can our committment be sustained,  and our passion and belief be pervasive enough to create change in  the direction of the present international insanity.  We must accept that working for  peace must become a full time  preoccupation, not just a fine spring day outing. We must realize  that if we are to succeed, which  means if we are to survive, we have  no choice. We cannot not live that  way. .' ��*y }f T"   *f Igrs&r.  Coast News, August 13,1984  Editor:  I read with interest the letters of  response to my comments about  herbicides.  I would like to say that my  original comments were an attempt  to identify priorities, not to take  away from the importance of the  environment as a potential health  hazard. As a trained epidemiologist I am well aware that human  health is a fine balance between internal and external forces. It is exactly this fact that has attracted me  to the field of public health.  As medical health officer my  "patient" is the community and  therefore I examine all aspects of  health, ranging from health  delivery services and human  biology to lifestyle and the environment. If I sat in my office and  overlooked these dynamics of the  philosophy and science of health I  would not be performing the services expected of me in my role as  health officer and director of the  department of health.  The possiblility that trace  chemicals such as herbicides in  water can be the cause of problems  has not been proven scientifically. I  will admit that the question of accumulated body burden overtime  has not been fully resolved as yet.  Large doses of herbicides have  been definitely established as a  cause of serious illness only in occupational workers, and in accidental spills where doses are  much higher than they are presently found in the environment.  I would like to point out that the  environment, which has been  blamed for birth defects and  cancer, includes a wide range of  other elements. Contamination of  the environment by smoke and industrial pollutants has been shown  to have a significant statistical  association with increased genetic  malformations,   lung  ahd   other  cancers and chronic bronchitis.  Genetic defects are also related to  many other environmental and  lifestyle hazards, including infec-M  tions, drugs, alcohol and cigarette  smoke, all of which have been  statistically proven as causative^  agents.  Once again the priorities: It is;;  my task to review and tabulate  causes of death from Canadian  and provincial statistics, and local  death   certificates.   The   leading  causes of death today are ischaemic  heart disease, cancer, circulatory  diseases,   stroke   and   accidents.  These diseases, including obstruc- .  tive lung disease, also account for a  considerable use of hospital beds  and other medical resources. This  list is related directly to the abuse  and misuse of .cigarettes,  food,  drugs, alchohol and vehicles.  Lifestyle induced diseases do not  just affect the individual. It is the  rest of us who have to pay the in-.':  creased medical costs and emotional upheavel that results from  their occurrence. Abusers are as  communicable as polio or  smallpox, both to those who  follow their example and to those  who have to pay the price for their  behavior.  My main point is that as well as  the herbicides, there are other  issues of importance which also  must be addressed. For example,  there is an urgent need for an infant car seat loaner program, a  smoking cessation program, and  legislation to segregate smokers  from non-smokers in public places.  I welcome input on any of these  points or any other public health  concerns, and am available at the  Coast-Garibaldi   Health v Unit,  886-8131.

Beach rowdies rile Gower resident  Editor:  How much longer must we who  live on Gower Point Road be  tyrannized by the brainless guttersnipes who hold their drinking  parties on the beaches near our  homes?  On a recent weekend one family  was awakened by smoke that filled  the house coming from a bonfire  left burning on the beach and at 5  a.m. two of them were down on  the beach throwing water on the  fire that threatened the tinder dry  bush surrounding their home.  Last weekend some moron carried a flaming branch though those  woods and during that same  disgraceful occasion one young  man had his throat severely cut  with a broken bottle. These events  can be confirmed by a householder  who, aroused by the noise, took  the trouble to dress and investigate.  Everybody's home in the area of  Secret Beach is endangered by the  criminal irresponsibility that must  inevitably end in tragedy for someone unless steps are taken to  curb it.  The police have been called  several times but their response  that with only two constables  available they are powerless, has  some validity. Where then must we  turn for protection, or will we be  forced into viligante action?  In addition to the danger it is intolerable that decent people be subjected to the screamed obscenities  that foul the air until the early  hours, not to mention the broken  Grateful president  Editor:  I would like publicly to thank  everyone involved in making the  cocktail party for the fifth anniversary of the opening of the Arts  Centre such a success on Saturday,  August 4.

Allan Crean Crane  President  Questions  Editor:  It is noted that Bill Kashtan said  in his speech at the Communist  meeting in Campbell River: "The  Communist Party had urged its  members to support the NDP in  ridings where a Communist is not  running."  Does he mean to say the NDP  and the Communists are working  side by side with the same object in  mind?  Is it not possible that the Communists could tell their members to  vote Liberal or PC in ridings where  there is no candidate running?  Does this mean that these four  political parties are all under the  same ideology of centralized  government?  It is sad in a great country like  Canada that all the three major  parties work mainly to keep power  in central Ontario.  C. Tanner  Courtenay, B.C.  Some people get  all the breaks..

Other areas have had  to deal with it by bringing in special  personnel and police dogs to teach  these hooligans to respect the rights  of other people.  It is a police matter and this resident would urge all others who live  on this beautiful Sunshine Coast to  speak out loud and clear to demand that an end be put to this  tyranny by a moronic minority.

"Disgusted"  Name withheld by request..  Proud of roots  Editor:  The Confederation of Regions  Western Party can, if enough of our  candidates are elected from the four  western provinces, become a  political block to establish western  power. We in the west, can have for  the first time in our history, a big  voice in what happens if we elect  enough COR Western Party candidates to hold the balance of  power.  We must learn a lesson from  Quebec and quit splitting our votes  amongst three parties, all of whom  are controlled in Ontario. I know  Quebec has two things in common  which makes them a cohesive  group, their language and their  religion.  We injthe,west.must establish our  own reason for unity and in my opinion it, must.be the fact'that we are  westerners. I am sure we are all very  proud of our western heritage, and"  western roots, that we are sons and  daughters of pioneers who came  from 100 nations of the world, with  different ethnic backgrounds; different languages, different religions  and very proud to have established  a western way of life and language  which is now common to us all.  We have come from multi-  culturalism,- and a society in conflict, into a western society different  in many ways from Ontario,  Quebec and the Atlantic provinces.  We must now become westerners  and we must vote for the west.  There is only one party, the Confederation of Regions Western Party, which has western directors,  western policies, western loyalties. It  is the only party which will never  become dominated by Ontario or  Quebec, and we can have politically  the best of both worlds.  If the conservatives win we will  not be taking anything away from  the Conservatives as long as they  treat us fairly because we will support them. If the Liberals win and  they treat us fairly we can also support them. The guidelines of course  will be, "Is is good for the west".  If we have the balance of power  we can support or defeat either one  of .the parties, which, will, establish  western political power and the best  of both worlds, politically.  Let us then join, work for, and-  finance the first and only western  party ever assembled in the west.  The people from Manitoaba,  Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C.  are now joining and candidates are  being nominated. What about you?  Don't you believe it's our turn?  E.

We know there is a lot of hard,  work and a lot of thought put into  the organization of. this event. I  wonder how many people like  myself, have objections to mixing  politics with parades.  I hope in the future the Sea  Cavalcade   committee   will   not  allow political advertising in the  parade. Let them take part in a  military parade and do their battling for power there.  H.

Tim's team won  the bronze in the Pan-Am games in  Caracos last year and this year  qualified for an Olympic entry at  the Lucerne International Regatta.

Although  by Gwen Robertson, 886-3780  There is a new Gibsons Sea  Cavalcade Queen and those of us  who have watched Debbie Mid-  dleton grow up��� a talented, active  and loving member of a loving  family are; very proud of her. Debbie was chosen among 11 delightful  and talented candidates who have  all put many weeks of effort into  the entire Queen's Pageant program. I doubt that any previous  group put out as much effort in  previous years. The town of Gib  sons and the families and friends of  these contestants must all be very  proud of them.  Those who were chosen by the  judges were: Deanna Cattenach as  Miss Congeniality; Cherie Adams  as Second Princess; Lila Turrell as  First Princess and Debbie Mid-  dletort as Sea Cavalcade Queen,  1984.  I wanted to rush up and hug  Vickie Hawken, 1983 Gibsons Sea  Cavalcade Queen as she addressed  her subject prior to turning over  her crown to the new Queen. Her  closing address was as gracious as  any monarch when she thanked  those who were reponsible for having afforded her the opportunity of  representing Gibsons throughout  the province of British Columbia  during her reign. Thank you Vicki  for a job well done.

Thanks to community backing  Maria had the needed funds in  good time to ensure her going with  'he team. Maria, who went  through Elphinstone secondary,,  has been a member of the  volleyball team for the past three  years, and took part in the tournament last year in Mexico City.  SEA CAVALCADE WINNERS  Some Sea Cavalcade events  report prize winners. At Branch  109, Royal Canadian Legion, last  Sunday's tournament saw the  men's singles in horseshoes won by  Don Davison of Roberts Creek,  the ladies' by Jane Coates of  Branch 109. Doubles winners were  Greg Teasdale, Branch 263, and  Don Cahill, Coquitlam. High score  in a single game: Al Boser with 42,  and Elaine Sutton with 24.  The snooker tournament was  won by Len Hominchuk of Branch  83, Burnaby. Second was Jim  Yelton of. Sechelt. The winning  team in darts was Don MacNeil, Jo  Torrance, Rob Bott, and someone  named Bill. The $500 draw went to  Jack Hoffman.  A Lion's Club spokesman  reports the winning weight in their  fishing derby was 14 pounds 12  ounces.   Herb   Berdahl   won   a  Sylvania video cassette recorder  with the catch, ''Everyone who  caught a salmon got a prize,*" said  the spokesman, "but the number  of entrants, 33 of them, makes us  wonder if this is a good time to  hold a derby. The Vancouver Sun's  free derby just the week before,  and the upcoming one in Powell  River may have distracted the  . anglers." ". mm���.

The Queen's  Ball which has formerly been a  social event that attracted hundreds, was this year a non-event.  People stayed away in large  numbers.  BE KIND TO TOURISTS  Being a tourist opens the eyes to  a new perspective of the industry.  In Ireland, Britain, and a corner of  Europe several million people shuffle through castles, museums, and  saunter through parks that they  have probably heard more about  than our own recreational  amenities at home. But the castles  weren't refurbished, nor the parks  laid out, nor the zoos stocked just  to draw the foreign visitor. All  these amenities were prepared for  their own peple to holiday at, but  they cheerfully share them with the  foreign visitor. Underline cheerfully and add helpfully. Let us start  with a "Be kind to Albertans"  week just to learn the right frame  of mind as a host to tourists.

See story below.  A -m ^>, v    y ���John Burnside pholo  At the Creekhouse  Art and good food a  winning combination  by Joan Huestis Foster  While the Creekhouse  Restaurant was being built on one  of the prettiest corners in Roberts  Creek I used to fantasize about  what a charming rendevous spot  for itinerant creekers and guests. In  my dreams I saw it as a drop-in  club or clannish pub, serving  delicious cappucino and exotic  pastries. A place where artists,  writers, editors and artisans could  gather about the huge Fireplace to  sip toddies while arguing and  thrashing out their various schemes  and big ideas.  On dreary winter days or lazy  summer ones I pictured the  Creekhouse filled with bright art  and spirited conversation; with exquisite hor's d'quvres accompanying debate, with vivid visitors, pretty dresses, table-hoppers, good  wines, chi-chis and beautiful food.  Last Saturday evening the  Creekhouse Restaurant was just  like my dreams!  ;, Exhibited were.; several local  paintings' which were a studied  contrast to the traditional decor  and they looked great. Beautifully  lit by the skylight were two of, Nancy Angermeyer's enormous pattern  plays looking splendid (one of  them a nude foot chess game). On  a sideboard were Jerry McBride's  marvellously colourful porcelains  with a very new-old look to them.  There were some Burrell Swartz  works from his blue and pear  period. Peter Branne had hung  some gorgeous water splash  lithographs which make every wave  painting ever done look as stale as  it probably is. Veronica Plewman  has placed two vibrant Vancouver  street, scenes which are fresh and  Roberts Creek  delightful and there are some  thought provoking photographs by  Donna Shugar among many other  fascinating works. Truly it is worth  a visit but there is more.  The buffet was actually groaning  under the most magnificent array  of edibles I've ever seen, all exquisitely decorated. There was a  huge traditional prime rib, poached salmon, jellied meat loaf, along  with three exotic coloured pastas.  A whole set of patterned dominos  made of forcemeat of lamb, whipping cream and egg and glazed  with chaud-froid and truffles, fat  dancing prawns, hard cooked eggs  each individually decorated with  tiny flowers of dill weed and  pimento,, black olive and see  through radish, cherry . tomato  roses, pates and little stuffed  tartlets, even the potato salad was  patterned and the guests were as  vivid as the food.  Poet Peter Trovyer was there  with lovely Yvonne, Nancy  Angermeyer, BurrelL Swartz,  former editor, now alderman,  John Burnside along with the very  bright and colourful Kate Fisher  who was responsible for the design  and presentation of the banquet  feast. Pat and Gail Cromie, Herb  Craig, Hank Schacte were there  among many others. Budge,.  Schacte and Ken Dalgleish contributed their charming and  tasteful musical improvisations.  I was so delighted with the art  work on the walls and the excellence of the board that I failed  to get as many names as T should  have but honestly, there it was* my  exact fantasy and it was gorgeous.  Thank you Ivan, Yvonne and  Kate Fisher for a great evening.   M  Herbicide hearing  by Jeanie Parker, 886-3973  PERMITS X      ~     "^  An appeal hearing on the  outstanding herbicide permits will  be held this Tuesday, August 14.  While Roberts Creekers have won  part of the battle, a big demonstration of support is desirable to make  the point so those who signed the  petition at Roberts Creek Daze are  urged to attend the hearing. It's at  9:30 a.m. at Pebbles Restaurant in  Sechelt, but get there early.  VOTER'S LIST  If you want to check whether  you're on the voter's list for the  upcoming federal election, the lists  for Roberts Creek are at the  Roberts Creek Post Office or  Seaview Market. You have until  this Wednesday to get on the list so  don't delay.  PERMITS CANCELLED  We've said it before, we'll say it  again./ If you?re( reporting a fire,  give good directions and have  somebpay up on the road .to show.  the firepfih the way. And long  before that might happen, check  your driveway to make sure it's  passable for aj fire truck. It could  save your hdnie someday.  The ?

'  Then he showed up in the Sea  Cavalcade parade in a big fancy  boat. He'd better not expect his  loyal subject in Roberts Creek to  row it for him!  DAZE RETROSPECT  Looking back at July five years  ago, it was pretty much filled with  Roberts Creek Daze, both the  preparation and the enjoyment. It  was the second year of the Daze  and again a great success.  That was the year the  Beachcombers beat the ladies' soft-  ball team. There were some good  entries in the Higgledy Piggledy  Parade, from Philip Gordon's  Metcalfe Road Fire Department to  The Peninsula Times "Dazed t  Planet" float.  Pat Cromie, Sean and Michael  swept the soap box derby and Edna  Naylor ahd Lee Stephens won the  canoe race. Their prize was a dinner for two but we never did hear  whether they went out together.  The first annual sand castle contest produced some very-good  sculptures and Ken Hincks, Don  Douglas, Margaret Arbuckle, and  George Potter won in the tournament at the^olf course;  Rainbow Ryders played to a  packed hall for the dance and  everybody was still going strong for  the clean-up. What energy we all  had in those days !M  In other news of July;M79, a.  Farmers' Market was started Sundays behind the post office, the  Legion got some new records but  lost "Spiders and Snakes",'and  everybody was relieved when  George and Marlene didn't sell the  store.

The assistance from the  gentlemen of the chapter who man  fully helped where needed, particularly in the dish washing  department and the help of Jobs  Daughters from Bethel #28 were  also appreciated.

Dressing society busy  by Lilian Flockhart  The Sunshine Coast Dressing  Service Society held its annual  meeting recently and would like to  report to the residents of the area  from Egmont to Port Mellon.  Of about 23 members, an  average of 14 volunteer workers  met at the Wilson Creek Community Hall the fourth Thursday  of each month, except July and  August, to make dressings.  New volunteers are always  welcome and can come for only a  portion of the 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  working period if they are busy. In  the past year we worked 362 hours  and turned out 452 Vi dozen dressings for home care patients. Special  size dressings can be made but the  usual requests are for 8"x8"  cellucotton pads and 4"x4" gauze  dressings. These are home sterilized under the direction of the public  health nurses.  Again this year the dressings  may be ordered and picked up at  the home of the- president, Mrs.  Lucy MacKay (886-9473).  Other executive members are  Mrs. B. Rankin, vice-president;  Mrs. Edna Bellerive, secretary-  treasurer; Mrs. Dorothy Parsons,  director in charge of materials;  Mrs. Wilma Sim, director in charge  of records,: and* Mrs! Lily  Flockhart, in charge of publicity.  The society does not need to re-,  quest financial assistance at this  time because of generous donations by individuals and organizations which include the Gibsons  Lions Club and the auxiliary to the  Royal Canadian Legion, Branch  140, Sechelt.  The Elphinstone Recreation  Society of Roberts Creek has given  donations in the past and have offered further assistance if it is needed, upon request. Last year the  amount spent on materials was  $782.50.  Cavalcade review  Continued from page 4  trophy. The other two winners  Dave Shiness Band and Harmony  Aquarium received $75 and $50  each, respectively, and a trophy.  Rachel Poirier gave her "all" for  Sea Cavalcade this year, with her  three artistic performances at the  professionally staged Queen's  Pageant at the Twilight Theatre on  Thursday to a capacity crowd; the  talent contest on Friday night; and  in the Children's Variety Show at  Dougal Park on Sunday afternoon.  Many were disappointed that  there were no logger, beachcomber  water sports this year which is no  surprise. We are, however, assured  that they will happen next year  because a few have come forward  and offered to put on this very  popular event. There is even a  rumour of a sponsor!  The Theatresports Tournament  was, again, a huge success. Teams  came from Vancouver, Victoria,  Calgary and Seattle, and one of the  judges called Saturday's action to a  packed house "the best  theatresports I've ever seen".  Vancouver took the coveted  "Sunshine Coast Screw" trophy  this year, and Calgary's David was  voted Most Valuable Player in the  tournament.  CENTENNIAL '86  In the Marine Room on Thursday evening, we saw the proposed  plans for the recreation complex  adjacent to the swimming pool and  curling rink in upper Gibsons.  The very real concern just now is  that recreation facilities could be  scattered with other groups  creating facilities previously intended for inclusion in the Centennial '86 project. For example, the  floor for the "bubble" in Brothers  Park has now been laid and is  suitable for a roller skating arena.  Because I was one who proposed  that a roller rink be included in the  Centennial '86 project, I was just a  little chagrined to learn it was to be  located at Brothers Park. Now, we  do not need that very expensive  floor.  As soon as everyone has been  able to view the plans, those groups  that have recreational needs not included in these plans, will be able  to go full steam ahead in fulfilling  these needs and those who "will be  making full use of the facilities that  are planned for Centennial '86 will  rally in support of them.  It,should be a very exciting time  during the next two years, shaping  up the direction of recreation in  Gibsons.  ."'��� >-X"'- ������.:''../.-' ������'���-v> 'VX -vX'>-iX..r': ���ix".:X��: 'X',t'."X'.i.'M': :���:���'���������;.- ��� Mil"; ���"''������'���"���*'���''*'-''" **Mvy *���������;'. .V\Mmv-'\v' ::������;:��������� ;-xt;;'Xr ���  by Jane McOuat, 883-9342  HERBICIDE SPRAYING &ONE  So, they've gone ahead and  aerially sprayed the hydro right-of-  ways from the sub-station through  to the ocean.    '    "    .   *  Last Friday morning Wilf  Harper arrived'at his pit and noticed that the leaves on the.trees were  drippy and sticky looking. Further  investigation showed that it was  not just his pit but all along the  line. That means right close to  Ruby Lake and all the residents'  drinking waters. This is madness!  When the chemicals used in  these herbicides break down they  are known carcinogens (cancer  causing) and known tetratogens  (causing birth or developmental  defects). We will "continue to be  subjected to this "there is no other  Egmont News  way for us to economically clear  the lines" type of unclear, untruthful answers until we begin  standing up for ourselves and our  children and .their children;. The  horror of the, tetratogens is that  they may take a while to build up  and then appear in .full force after  we are gone. What. a terrible  legacy!   :     - '  Keep your eyes and ears peeled  for Iegalt notices in the paper and  let's dp something next time.  Speaking for myself,' I sure  could use some*extra work this fall;  why can't there be a place forme in  Hydro's budget? rfey say. their expensive program of spraying or  "hack and squirt" eliminates the  regrowth problem but I say hot so.  Every year new seed grows in the  right-of-way. Nature doesn't give  up easily, thank goodness!

They were the gracious hosts of a  three day big party when Kay's  relatives the Mackies who are  members of the McKay clan came  from far and wide for a family reunion.  In all there were 56 guests with  campers and tents on the Her-  miston lawn. Family members  came from Kitchener, Ontario,  Winnipeg, Calgary,. Kamloops,  Kelowna and Vancouver.  Highlight of the gathering was dinner and party at Welcome Beach  Hall when the cake decorated with  a highland theme was piped in by a  member of the Sechelt pipe band.  There was a delightful climax to  the evening celebration when word  was received that a brand new baby  grandson had just made his entry  into the world. Jack and Kay's son  Alan and wife Valerie had left the  gathering the day before to attend  to the matter of the arrival of  another member of the clan and  seemed to have timed it well to help  make the gathering an even more  joyous affair. Things are almost  back to normal now in the Her-  miston home but it will be hard to  unwind after such a great affair!  STANLEY BURKE  Stanley Burke of CBC fame gave  a most interesting and humourous  talk on Friday night at the Festival  of the Written Arts in Sechelt. He  was one of several celebrities who  have been gracious enough to attend this affair and help make it a  highly successful and exciting one  .which is still in progress at the time  of writing. There will be much  more on this as events occur.  PIONEER LUNCHEON  There are apparently still a few  tickets available for the luncheon  to honour Halfmoon Bay pioneers  on Wednesday of this week.  However, if you would like to attend you should give Mary Shannon a call right away at 885-9765 or  you will be too late.  There's not much in the way of ,  news from Halfmoon Bay these  days so if you know of anything  you would like to have included in  this column please give me a call.

SHCXXT&LR  Child Identification Program  by Bill Edney  The RCMP Crime Prevention Department has developed a  jchild identification program and with the aid of the Block  Parents Organization of Vancouver have been successful in  providing child identification kits to a very large number of  people.  In the lower mainland, I am told they have done. 1 7,700, in  Kelowna approximately 2,000. West Vancouver has its own  child identification program through the local West VanM  couver Police Department. In October it is hoped this pro-  | gram can be extended to Victoria and elsewhere.  Our own community is being organized and volunteers are  needed to hold a two-day child identification program in Gibson's to be held at the Kinsmen Hall, August 25 and 26 from 9  ja.m. to 5 p.m. Hopefully people will respond from Port  Mellon to Roberts Creek. For this time, approximately 1,000  kits will be available. The kits cost $2 but will be FREE to  everyone.  The kit includes: a polaroid picture; finger prints; information sheet and a mastic folder to enclose the information.  These items will be the property of the parents.  The program, a brainchild of the RCMP, is receiving heavy  financing from large commercial organizations, which I am  told in part at least is as follows:  London Drugs - $200,000 for equipment, printed forms,  film and pens; Kodak - donated cameras and bulk supply of  film; Scott Paper Co. - contributed $100,000; Shaben &>  Hamden - supplied plastic folders, etc.  This appears to be a program that is catching on and requires input from many concerned parents and community  volunteers. A training and briefing session will be held for the  volunteers the evening of August 24 from 7 to 10 p.m. at the |  Kinsmen Hail.  The   list   of   organizers   is   as . follows:   Melody   Byatt,  886-9150; Mary Ann DeVries, 886-7363; Linda Hellenius.j  886-8247; jorgen Christiansen, 886-7626.  Please contact them for further Information.  It was the latter, Mr. Christjansen, who contacted me and j  asked for this publicity. He is a newcomer to this area and has |  had experience with this program in North Vancouver.  Each year thousands of children vanish. One can easily I  foresee how much help a program of this nature could be in j  tracing missing persons.  Donations will be appreciated.

Hydro is asking candidates and their supporters not to  put posters on power poles during  the federal election campaign.  ��   In the past linemen have been injured when their climbing spurs  slipped on the cards, nails and  staples.  "We request the co-operation of  all candidates and campaign  workers in helping to keep our  employees safe while on the job,"  Earle Pritchett, Hydro safety coordinator said.  BACK AGAIN  BY REQUEST  by Peter Trower  A few hours driving puts us  through Wisconsin and into Minnesota. The farmland is broken at  intervals by patches of second  growth timber, both deciduous and  coniferous. I recall reading how  both these states were virtually logged bare by greedy timber barons  in the unregulated plundering of  the late 1800's.  We pass, from the pleasant  farmland into rather forbidding  country; rocky, unattractive terrain, brush-choked and thinly  peopled. Now the weather alters as  if to suit the territory. The sky  clouds over and a heavy, drenching  rain begins.  The Aspen splashes on through  the downpour. We are vaguely  planning to stop over at an oddly-  named town called Bemidji but it is  still quite early when we reach there  and Yvonne wants to push on. We  finally call a halt at a place called  Crookston near the North Dakota  state line.  We drive downtown and immediately encounter a major problem. There seem to be no motels,  hotels or any other forms of accomodation. After driving about  frustratedly for some time, we seek  the advice of a gas station attendant. He directs us to the outskirts  where such facilities are apparently  consigned by some local ordinance.  We find lodgings at a hotel full of  cowboys and other outdoor types,  in town for a horse-breeder's convention.  October 2,1982. Over the North  Dakota line and westward again. X  We stop for breakfast at a roadside,!;  cafe near Church's Ferry. The  food is fine but I have a few  moments of perhaps unjustified  paranoia.  Through the morning diner  the gunmen of North Dakota  stalk like shock troops  in their camouflage jackets  good old boys from the bad  old.days.  They've parked their rifles  in pickups outside  now they crowd a commandeered  table  and hold a war council  involving the undoing of ducks.  Undercover review  They're going shooting in  ^ the sloughs  innocent hunters  out to stock their freezers  Why do their faces  have that certain sly suggestion  of menace.  They pay us no mind whatsoever  deep in talk bf blinds and decoys  Why is there a hint  of something else in their voices  a certain sinister undertone?  Somehow I'm glad that these are  no longer  the pyschedelic Sixties  and you and I, my dear, two  hapless hippies  in a technicolour sitting duck  Volkswagon van.  Leaving the cafe, we run into a  slight directional problem. The  state and county highways are both  designated Number 6 and we turn  onto the latter by mistake. We are  heading back in the direction we  came before we spot the error and  get turned around again.  This is farm country again and ���  we forge west through vast fields of  muffets and bread loaf shaped  haystacks, deserted barns and  forlorn rows of windbreak trees.  There are also vast acres of  sunflowers - the first we have seen  since Kansas. Soon we are passing  through Rugby, the geographical  centre of North America. Despite  this claim to fame, it is a  remarkably ordinary looking little  town.  The road runs ever on. We pass  a sprawling plains city called  Williston and enter Montana. We  are out of the rain now and into  sunshine again. The country is  beginning to change again into  more definite prairie land. We stop  to take a picture of a particularly  impressive muffet field. The Aspen  eats up the miles and dusk begins  to sift down on the Big Sky country. Eventually, we trundle to a  halt at the town of Glasgow. A  typical cowtown, christened by  some homesick Scotsman in the  last century, it bears small  resemblance to its famous  namesake.  To be continued  by Betty and Perry Keller  "Smith and Other Events" is  Paul St. Pierre's most recent collection of stories of the Chilcotin  sattle range. Many of them  originally appeared in the CBC  television series "Cariboo Country".  They tell of the lives of the subsistence ranchers in the fictitious  "Namko" region of the Chilcotin  in the lates 1940's and 50's, a time  when the B.C. Interior was  thought of as wholly cowboy country. .  Namko lies where the central  plateau crumbles on the edge of the  coastal range, breaking up the cattle lands and bringing long snowy  winters. Herds are necessarily small  and life for the local inhabitants  doesn't get far beyond the basics.  In this book, St. Pierre reintroduces many of his favourite  characters, including Smith, first  made famous in "Breaking Smith's  Quarterhorse". Smith���stubbornly independent and completely imperturbable���is typical of the  Namko ranchersr  In the story. "A Day with a Deer,  a Bear and Norah Smith", Smith is  at his best, beginning the day in  yesterday's filth and smug with the  satisfactions of riding this land on  a spring day. Other Chilcotin  characters fill St. Pierre's stories:  the trapper December Nilsen, the  world's last innocent man; Fren-  chie's wife, the glamourous woman  who came in answer to a letter to  marry the improverished rancher.  "Smith and Other Events" also  includes stories about the Indian  people of Namko; "Sarah's Copper" and "The Education of  Phyllisteen" show the Chilcotin Indians as local neighbours without  over-romanticizing their way. of  life, or ignoring the reality of their  poverty.  St. Pierre has much less skill in  dealing with the women of Namko.  The division of duties can be easily  seen in a Namko picnic where "the  women raised the tents, sent their  children for water and cooked. The  men sat around, drank whisky and  talked about things that really mattered". Undoubtedly, this was  typical of life in the Chilcotin at  that time, but St. Pierre fails to  make the women behind the  stereotypes come alive.  The reader is allowed a gentle  laugh at the cowboys for their conviction that the wives just talk a lot  and spoil a man's fun, but there is  little in the women that St. Pierre  paints to suggest that they were  wrong.  So if you heart still yearns to  roam the range and you don't  mind leaving "real life" women  behind you, take a look at "Smith  and Other Events*/.

Langara Properties is proposing  that, as Phase 1 of its project, it  would build a Gulf gas bar and a  2500 square foot convenience store  in Park Place, next to the Twilight  Theatre, and the rest of the  development would be built "as  soon as it is expedient", probably  in the spring of 1985.  Gibsons planner Rob Buchan  spoke against the request. "There  is no justification for the release of  the hold-back," he said. "The introduction of another gas bar and  another convenience store into the  community is completely without  planning justification."  To allow the building of Phase 1  the whole property would have to  be rezoned, and once rezoned  council would have no further control over what else is done on the  property.  "Economic conditions haven't  changed since the last review of this  situation," continued Buchan. "I  see no need for a revision of council's view."  Police crack down  The deadly mix of drinking/driving and vacation traffic is  making August one of the most  dangerous months on B.C.'s accident calendar.  In response Sechelt and Gibsons  detachments of the RCMP will be  launching "Summer Counterattack '84" from August 19 to  September 3 in an effort to stem  ���he continuing toll of injuries and  leaths.  During our first blitz April 20 to  May 21 there was a 100 per cent increase in the number of vehicles  checked. This amounts to 12 per  cent of the driving population of  B.C. In British Columbia 1536  DWI/charges were laid and 2,876  roadside suspensions were handed  out.  Since our last safety program the  use of 24-hour driving suspensions  has been temporarily suspended.  This removes an excellent method  of removing drinking drivers from  the road. It also means that the  police will no longer be handing  out 24-hour suspensions but instead will be charging offenders  with drinking driving offences.  During our "Summer  Counterattack '84" program both  Sechelt and Gibsons detachments  are asking for your support by not  driving if you are drinking, buckling up before you start your trip  and having patience at our  Counterattack roadblocks.

Boyce, who was driving a  motorcycle, lost control of his bike  when he tried to avoid two dogs  who had run into his path. One of  the dogs was struck by the motorcycle.  On August 8, Alister Brodie of  Vancouver was charged with driving without due care and attention  after he lost control of his vehicle  on North Road. Brodie, who was  not injured in the accident, drove  his car off the road and struck a  guard rail.  Sophie Wowk, an out-of-town  visitor, reported the theft of her  purse August 4. Wowk accidently  left, her purse in a telephone booth  located in the Roberts Creek Provincial Park; when she returned to  the booth, her purse was gone.  On August 8, Ed Shane reported  the theft of binoculars valued at  $120 and of a Canon camera  valued at $300. The items were  -stolen from the government wharf  on Keats Island. Police are still investigating.  The Elphinstone high school was  broken into and entered on August  5. It is not known if anything was  taken and it appears that no  damage was done to the school as a  result of entry.  On August 6, a Davis Bay resident reported that vandals damaged his vehicle while he was attending a party in the Secret Beach  area.  Vancouver man Gordon  Jackson was arrested August 8 and  charged with possession of a  weapon dangerous to public peace.  Jackson is presently under police  custody and will appear in court in  Vancouver. The charges laid  against Jackson arose from an incident which occurred on the  premises of Ken's Lucky Dollar  store in lower Gibsons; it appears  that Jackson brandished a knife at  an employee of the store.  SECHELT RCMP  A 34-year old Vancouver man  died on August 6 as a result of injuries received in a diving accident  which occurred August 4 in the  Halfmoon Bay waterfront area.  George Malliars was swimming  with a friend when the accident  happened. It appears that Malliars  struck his head on the bottom  while diving. Malliars was taken to  Shaughnessy Hospital, never  regained consciouness and passed  away two days later.  Several break and entries were  reported this week. On August 3,  $50 worth of cash was taken from  a Sechelt residence.  On August 5, the Chatelech high  school was broken into and entered  through a back window. Nothing  was taken but some damage was  done when flower pots were turned  over.  On August 7, $320 was stolen  from a Redrooffs Road residence  that had been left unlocked and  unattended.  On August 8, a cabin located in  RAPE: PART 4  Rape and the Law  Sexual assault, more commonly  known as rape, is an indictable offence covered under the Criminal  Code of Canada. There are three  recognized degrees of rape.  Sexual assault, which carries a  maximum 10 year penalty; sexual  assault with a weapon or with the  threat to use a weapon or with  threatening a third party with a c  weapon, carries a maximum 14 _  year penalty; and aggravated sex-"  ual  ^*l ^.W*^  maiming, 'disfigurement   or   en- J  dangerinent of the life-of the vk> "  tim, which carries a maximum life  penalty.  When a woman is raped, it is  essential that she makes the complaint to the police immediately;  not only will this enable the police  to apprehend the suspect more  quickly but there is vital evidence  which has to be gathered by  medical authorites and by the  police that could be lost if report of  the rape is delayed or if the victim  destroys evidence on herself or at  the scene of the rape.  There are many well known  reasons why a rape victim is reluctant to report a sexual assault. Em-  barassment or a lack of confidence  in the police and their procedures  are good examples.     ,  It cannot be emphasized enough  that sexual assault is considered by  police to be a very serious crime.  The police are experienced in the  investigation of rapes and have  many support services available to  assist the victims. The investigations are conducted as discreetly as  possible, and so is the questioning  of a victim, bearing in mind that  some very delicate questions must  be asked in order for sexual assault  charges to belaid..  Sometimes, the victim is afraid  that her previous sexual history will  be brought up as evidence in court.  As of January 4, 1983, case laws  have been legislated restricting such  evidence and its use in court. The  media is prohibited by law from  publishing evidence concerning the  victim's sexual history. Evidence of  Our town  a person's sexual reputation is no  longer admissible in court.  Drunkeness on the part of the  perpetrator is no defense against  charges of sexual assault.  A spouse may also be charged  for sexual assault whether or not a  couple are living together at the  time of the offense.  Sexual assault is a very serious  offense and it does happen in our  town. Actual complaints received  by police in our town are very few  but there would be many more if  we were better educated on the  subject of sexual assault. Your  local detachment will be happy to  supply you with the proper infor-  v mation regarding this serious  _ crime.  In the next few weeks, we will  starta seqes^f articles oor^he^ut)-  ject of sexual abuse of children. As  usual, we Would really appreciate  receiving comments from our  readers. Because of the delicate  nature of children's sexual abuse,  we will be unable to interview  young victims for the purpose of  publication. But we would like to  appeal to any adults who have been  a victim of sexual assault when  they were children, to write to us  and share their experiences with  our readers.

Jim Peers Sr. and Clint Suveges  chalked up a second place finish in  the competition, with Jimmy running the boat and Clint doing the  work on the logs. The pair, who  also finished second in the rodeo  last year, received trophies and  $300 each for their fine efforts.  A special thanks goes out to Bill  from  the  Cedars   Pub   and  to  Molson Breweries who together  sponsored Jim and Clint in their  *" winning trip to Powell River.  Crime  prevention  in full swing  The Marine Watch Program has  now been completed. We urge all  boat owners, who have not already  done so, to contact the Gibsons  RCMP at 886-2245, to get all their  valuables engraved. We will arrange a suitable time for a visit to  your boat or an engraver may be  borrowed from the Gibsons  RCMP, free of charge.  The Summer Canada '84  students have now begun work on  the Neighbourhood Watch Program. The project workers will be  visiting as many homes in the area  as possible. Please participate in  the Neighbourhood Watch Program to help prevent crime in the  community of Gibsons.  On Wednesday, August 8, the  return match of the Men's In-  terclub with Seymour Golf Club  was played under a brilliant blue  sky and ended with the Sunshine  Coast players winning by better  than 30 points. Seymour won at  their course on* August 1 by 14  points so the Sunshine Coast club  retains the trophy for another year.  Seventy-six players took part in  this very popular and enjoyable In-  terclub Tournament.  Thursday Seniors, August 9 was  played by four person teams, using  three clubs and a putter only. The  winners with a low team net of 125  were Jim Gilchrist, Ray Phillips,  Art Kiloh and Bill Lawrence. Second with a low net of 129 were Al  Dean, Art Hauka, John Petula and  Dick Tolhurst. Closest to the hole  on #8 was Al Bullock.  Don't forget to sign up for the  luncheon on Thursday, August 16.  The twelfth annual Sea  Cavalcade Golf Tournament was  played under sunny skies Saturday,  August 4 and cool, blustery  weather the next day.  The success of this tournament  was guaranteed by the work of the  Greens & Match committees and  the unstinting efforts of some 70  volunteers. Two days of top calibre  golf by 90 men and 24 ladies ended  thusly.  Men's Division:  A three way tie for first place  was resolved by the always exciting  method of 'sudden death' play-off.  Ken Shirstobitoff was knocked out  on the first hole and Bruce Taylor's  birdie beat Chris Thoron's par on  the second.  Winners:  Tournament Champion: Bruce  Taylor (Seymour G.C.) 144 gross.  Low   Net  Winner:   Roy  Taylor  (Sunshine Coast G.C.) 127 net.  RunnerTup: Chris Thorson (Glen  Eagles G.C.) 144 gross.

The winning results are  somewhat unique in that Anna  May Taylor is the mother of Bruce  Taylor and is sister-in-law to Roy  Taylor. The 1985 contestants will  have to be in top form to break the  ���Taylor grip'.  A sincere 'thank you' to all who  helped make this an enjoyable  tournament and a hearty 'congratulations' to all winners.

MaffilPilleiii  by Diane Evans  Identifying garden problems can  take quite a bit of detective work,  as I discovered a couple of weeks  ago when first I noticed brownish  areas developing on the beet  greens. This delicious vegetable is  one of my favourites so I was anxious to stop whatever "it" was.  At first I thought perhaps the  evening watering schedule had left  too much moisture on the leaves  overnight, leading to mildew of  some kind, so I changed that, and  waited to see some improvement.  The leaves continued to brown and  turn to mush. I asked all my  gardening friends, but no one had  any idea of what it was. I removed  all the affected leaves, ensured the  entire area was clean, checked  under the mulch for unusual  creepy-crawlies, but the problem  persisted.  Then, a week or so later, after I  had ail but given up, I was visiting  another garden where I saw a  similar marking on the Swiss  chard. I picked a leaf, and happened to hold it up to the light to see  more clearly. There, nestling inside  the leaf in a comer of the spot, was  a small worm-like shape. I opened  the leaf and found three small  white larvae. I rushed home to the  beet greens, and sure enough,  every affected leaf contained one  or two of these little creatures. As I  looked, I found a small black fly,  something like a fruit fly, burrowed into a leaf. I took all this information and with some help from  the friendly neighbourhood  nursery man, discovered I had an  infestation of leaf-miners.  There are several chemical solutions to such a problem, but I  wanted to avoid the use of toxic  sprays. I removed all the leaves  again and destroyed them. I noticed the neighbouring tomato plants  were host to dozens of the little  flies I had noticed on the beet leaf,  so I turned to Safer's soap and  sprayed all the plants. So. far the  results are promising; the beet  leaves are looking healthy and I'm  hoping the leaf miners are gone for  good. If I see more of those tiny  black flies I'll try to catch them  with the soap spray before they lay  their eggs.  I have never been plagued with  this pest before; even though I'd  read about them and looked at il  lustrations-it wasn't until I actually  dealt with the problem that I learned to know the early symptoms.  Many pests and plant diseases are  unfamiliar, but don't despair.  Careful investigation and observation will eventually get you to the  root of the problem. Keep your  eyes open and , watch for the  smallest changes in your garden, so  that you can start your detective  work as soon as the problem appears. Hopefully, this won't happen too often.

AUG. 19-SEPT3,1984  Gold in the shoals  "There's a gold rush on fish farming around here!" exclaimed  an obviously pleased Economic Development Commissioner Oddvin Vedo last Friday. "In the last week I've had another five or six  serious inquiries regarding fish farms."  Some of the inquiries are from local people, and some of those  interested come from as far away as Japan.  There has also been serious interest expressed in establishing an  industry to manufacture flotation equipment in this area.  "The possibilities seem endless." Vedo said.  BRUCE M.

Gibsons questions  road necessity  �� Gibsons Planning Committee is  ^considering that perhaps it does  "Tnot need any additional major  .roadways into residential areas  *south of Highway 101 besides  ������Shaw Road and Pratt Road.  >. As part of its connector network  ��to the proposed Gibsons by-pass,  Z the department of highways is  2 planning a grid road system, and a  �� former council approved a Sunnycrest Road/Mahan Road con-  "���nection leading from the by-pass to  Gower Point Road. Highways  I planner Richard James has admit-  " ted this is long-range planning, and  ' the road may not be necessary for  \ 50 to 100 years.  '    Council   has   recently   shown  ^preference   for   a   Park   Road/  Mahan Road connection instead,  mainly due to the commercial and  residential   properties   through  ��� which the former road would pass,  ; and the regional district has approved such a route as long as it  .'follows   designated   easements.  /However,   neither  of the  plans  ^received   back   from   highways  ,- showing two possible routes meets  the approval of both local bodies,  so the situation is being reviewed.  "Any road we choose will be a  great cost, and justification for it is  no more than a highways textbook  preference for spacing," stated  Gibsons planner Rob Buchan.  "Pratt Road will serve years and  years of future development. There  is no justification for the additional  expense of a road between Pratt  and Shaw except to comply with a  ministerial decision.'*  The planner was directed to  study the effects of the proposed  routes on Brothers Park and arrange a meeting with the regional  board to discuss the matter.  Should it be a highways requirement that one of the routes be  chosen, the planning committee  sees no reason why the road would  have to be built.  A letter will be directed to the  minister of highways requesting  that highest priority be given the  building of the Gibsons by-pass.  Planning committee chairman Ron  Neilson indicated that all necessary  design and survey work has been  completed up to Payne Road, and  "work could start tomorrow".  0f regional planning  Gibsons wants out  jM The. town of Gibsons has taken  a^^antage of new provisions in the  Municipal Act which allow a  municipality to opt out of an electoral area planning program in a  regional district.  . A motion put forward by Alderman Ron Neilson stated that,  "having considered the services  received in the program over the  (gist IS years, be it resolved that the  tpwn'of Gibsons serve notice to the  Sunshine Coast Regional Board  that it wishes to opt out of regional  planning".  MHThe town has been paying  $18,000 annually to be pan of the  joint planning program, and cqun^  ^^illorsv'feel that they have received  nothing for it. Regional planners  for the most part have been too  busy with regional work to have  time to assist with town planning.  The town must continue to pay  the annual fee for the next two  years, so that budget and funding  adjustments can be made to programs already underway, and must  continue to serve annual notice  that it does not wish to be part of  the program. Should it change its  mind and again wish to participate,  it simply does not serve annual  - notice.  v  Herbicide appeal  A meeting will take place on Tuesday, August 14 at 9:30 a.m. at  the Driftwood Inn, Pebbles Restaurant to hear an appeal against  the forestry service's permit to spray 2,4-D (not Round-up as  reported last week). The chemical is to be applied by helicopter in  the Earl Creek area.  At the meeting the three member appeal board will hear a presentation from the appellant Iris Griffith and will render their decision  at a later date.  The public is welcome at this meeting but the process of appeal  hearings excludes public participation.  Kube to visit  Art Kube of the B.C. Federation of Labour will be in attendance  when the Sunshine Coast Unemployment Action Centre holds open  house next Monday, August 20, at the old Gibsons firehall on  Gower Point Road.  Everyone is warmly invited to drop into the centre between 11  a.m. and 4 p.m. to meet and talk with Mr. Kube.

Problems  discussed  Alderman Ron Neilson will  discuss with the RCMP concerns  expressed by residents in the vicinity of Georgia Beach over "the  recurring abuse of the facility by  rowdy, drunken, boisterous  groups", who leave broken glass  and garbage around, build illegal  bonfires and keep residents awake  until the wee hours of the morning.  Residents have suggested a barrier be erected and the park closed  from II p.m. until 8 a.m. daily,  but a recent barrier to keep cars off  the grass consisting of eight foot  logs with four feet buried in the  ground have been forcibly removed.  wants ire�� boat ta  The GibsonsWildlife Club has  petitioned Gibsons council "concerning the possible construction  of a free use small boat launching  ramp in the immediate Gibsons  area...to take the place of the old  free public ramp" which was  demolished and has been replaced  by a 'user pay* ramp in the Gibsons  marina.  Speaking for the wildlife club,  Mr. Pat Mulligan noted that people who boat, especially seniors,  "got a severe shock when we lost  the use of the free public boat launching ramp".  The cost to use the new ramp is  $2 to put a boat in the water, $2 to  take it out, plus $1 for car parking.  Books of tickets, which cost $50,  can reduce the $5 total to $3, but  Mr. Mulligan indcated that such an  initial outlay is prohibitive, and pn  top of the costs for bait and gas,  retired people especially find the  ramp costs "a severe hardship";  "This is the only place between  Gibsons and Halfmoon Bay where  there is a ramp to put a boat in the  water," he said. "And $504 per  year is the cheapest berthage I  could get in the new marina. A lot  of seniors could be forced to give  up their recreation because of the  costs."  Mayor Larry Labonte responded  that the old ramp, which had been  built by the town and the chamber  of commerce, was not really free,  but was paid for by taxpayers. He  also pointed out that $40,000 had  already been spent on the new  ramp, and part of the revenue  from it goes to the town. Furthermore, the bay area has been leased  to Gibsons Marina Hotel Inc.,  developers of the marina, and the  town therefore no longer has legal  access to that area and could not  put in a free ramp.  Wildlife club member Fred  Holland told council that the club  has noted several sites along the  coast for potential ramps for small  boats, including one in Roberts  Creek which might accommodate  boat trailer parking, and it has  scheduled meetings with four  regional directors to investigate the  sites.   He   suggested   that   joint  SCRD and West Howe Sound  Recreation Commission funds  already allocated for recreation  might be used for the ramps.  Mr. Holland subsequently told  the Coast News that the wildlife  club was also willing to donate  labour and to undertake fund-  raising activities for the building of  small boat ramps. "We want to get  working on it," he said.  "The loss of the free boat ramp  is the single most frequent complaint we get," commented Alderman John Burnside. "If any kind  of solution can be found it would  be appreciated by a lot of people.".
