Array ���f Psrilameht Buildings  VlOtORlA, B;C;  V8V 1X4  85.4  Victoria delay  Green lost again  "This has been a very disappointing and frustratirig experience  since this was probably our last opportunity to MpurchaseM Coopers  Green for public iise,'" said Jim  Gurney at: the regional M board  meeting of .August 23 in referring  to the decision by the owner of that  property to seU to private interests.  Coopere Green is !a choice piece  of cleared waijerfrbnt land'in the  Halfmboh Bay area^ which Offered  marly potentialvi amenities for  public use ahdhadlong been viewed by SCRD as a favourable park  site. /'���-/.  The board had been attempting  since mid-July to come to an agreement with Mrs. Cooper, The asking price of $200,000, (65 per cent  of its market value), was met after  the initial offer of $180,000 was  refused. The purchase was blocked  by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs' procrastination in granting  the authority to purchase and by  the owner's reluctance to grant an  extension when another purchaser  was found.X  "Everything had been prepared,  all the papers were in order and  submitted to Victoria. Municipal  Affairs had five days to give us a  simple 'yes' or -no' answer. They  still haven't responded," said a  distraught Jim Gurney. . He  deplored the seemingly contradictory positions on the part of the  provincial government which promised co-operation but delivered  bureaucratic impediments when  action was needed.  Had the purchase gone through,  it would have meant a total cost  per household (excluding the  municipalities) of $15 spread put  over a few years.  One of the interesting sub-  elements of this question was: the  1 "user pay" approach of the present government which wants to  turn to private enterprise, areas  which in the past have been in the  domain of freely accessible service  funded by public funds.  In terms of seeking professional  consultation in guiding such undertakings as the purchase of Coopers  Green some of the board directors  were in favour of the user pay concept while others thought that  these services should be available as  part of government services.  r mediates  ��� "..*���.

In the last year the club has gone  from a membership of nine to 47,  and recent registration indicates  that the successful program will attract at least 100 participants this  year. Anticipating this increase, the  club's executive made a request at  the beginning of July to rent additional pool time for two hours on  Saturdays as well as the two hours  each on Monday, Wednesdays and  Fridays that it was using last year.  ft made its request early in the hope  of having its fall program planned  well in advance.  But  nothing was heard  from  * pool   management   until   mjd-  August, when recreation director  Rob Liddicoat told the club that,  npt only could it not have additional pool hours on Saturday, but  its regular two-hour time slots were:  being cut back to one hour each,  and the pool management was tak- i  ing over the Chinook Club.

Chairman Jim Gurney stated, "I  Kube urges job creation  by John, Burnside  President of the B.C. Federation  of Labour was in Gibsons last  week, visiting the Unemployed Action Centre in the old firehall near  the Post office. It was part of a  p,rovince-wide tour of the 31  Unemployed Action Centres across  the province which are financed  largely by the Federation of  Labour.  "We are starting to develop a  program to put unemployment on  the politcal agenda," Kube told the  Coast News. "We need alternate  strategies for employment creation."   :  ��� Kube said that the intention was  to, have volunteers start study  groups feeding their findings into  the Federation and Solidarity's  commission on the economy.  "We need an approach to socioeconomic planning which will  focus less on capital development  projects and more on the quality of  life within communities," said  -Kube.f m  Kube stressed the need for broad  support within the province. "It  costs a tremendous amount to run  these centres," he said. "So far the  trade union movement has provided more than $3 million for the  unemployed action centres and we  are asking employed ������ trade  unionists to provide-$l a month to  help support strategies which will  put B.C. back to work."  The function of the centres are  threefold, according to Kube: To  maximize services available to the  unemployed; to help maintain the  sense of self-worth of the  unemployed, "People tend to  blame themselves for being  unemployed and they need support  groups"; and to create the political  will to speak out for full employment:  According to the B.C. Federation of Labour president, the  unemployed action centres are providing services the community is  not otherwise providing. "The  food banks, for instance,', are  meeting a real need," said Kube.  Kube said that the economy is in  a tailspiri, especially in BvC. "The  provincial government has induced  an atmosphere of fear. The  consumer-led recovery seen  elsewhere in Canada has not come  to this province. Ih B.C. we have  the .second highest unemployment -  rate in the country and the highest  totals of personal savings - over $30  billion in this province."  - Arguing that government expenditures are good economic and  social investments, Kube said that  even ardent supporters of the  Social Credit party in B.C. are being badly hurt by the government's  anti-trade union policies.  "We need confidence, not conflict," said Kube, pointing out that  the working man will spend a  dollar if he's got it.  "Small business supporters of  the government are being badly  hurt by the misguided provincial  policies, and small business  represents the last free enterprisers.  Big business is neither free /nor  enterprising."  Kube said that exchange contrpls  are comings to Canada, "No national plan is possible unless there  are exchange controls. We are not ���  talking about vacation ..spending  but momentary transfers of  massive amounts of capital out-of  the country."  "The essential problem," said  Kube, "is that technology is  destroying jobs leaving us with a  distribution of wealth problem. We  have new structural problems in  society and society has to develop  broad social consensus to deal with  the changes taking place. We have  seen polarization and social division in this province and we know  that, it cannot be the way of the  future."     :  Decrying the expenditures of  millions of dollars on megaprojects  which have a relatively low job  multiplier effect, Kube called for  such funds to be spent on tourist  facilities which would leave  something after the money was  spent.  "The principal tragedy is the  tragedy of our young people. We  could lose an entire generation  unless we address ourselves to the  structural problems that confront  Pur society."  feel a little deceived jmatMithe  Minister of Municipal Affairs has  in one move, broken his threefold  promise."  The minister had earlier indicated he would maintain planning grants at their previous levels;  he would consider settlement planning a number one priority; and he  would work closely with  municipalities before making  changes.  The cut in available grants  represents an, approximate 10 per  cent reduction in the planning  budget of the SCRD making it  relatively easy to absorb in the  overall implementation of the  budget.  r  co-ordinatbr of Swim' B.C.' *'fctf  mediate the dispute.

The  man, whose first name is Cliff, was first on the scene of the accident and helped the young rider out of the creek he had fallen in.  This man had also just received a delivery of gas from Coast  Taxi, who supplied the police with the man's first name. The young  boy was taken to Vancouver General Hospital for treatment of  head injuries. The accident occurred on the 20th at 10 p.m.  Clean-up planned  Labour Day Monday the merchants of lower Gibsons are invited  to participate in a general clean-up of the harbour area.

The study is to cover the  quality of housing now available in  the area, the effects of seasonal differences, affordability and future  M; problems that may affect this type  ��� of development.  - Local police are more than willing to co-operate with local  residents to' put an end to the  disruptive parties on Georgia  Beach. Rather than confronting  the party-goers, directly, local  residents are requested to phone  the police immediately and they  will take care of the problem.  Building speed bumps in the area  and/or closing off the public beach  at night.are possible solutions, but  these would be seen as a last resort.  Council took a stand in support  of a letter from Mayor Harcourt  stating the city of Vancouver's opposition to the sale of alcohol in  public outlets.

In 1958, too, the acquiescent Canadian people, stung out of  their political torpor by the excesses of the Liberal party grown  cynical by prolonged retention of power, switched in a massive  way to a new face and a new voice. In 1958 we were urged to  1 'follow John' as Diefenbaker stumped the country exhorting us  to a new vision of Canada which would culminate in the  development of the neglected north. In 1984, it seems to this  vantage point, that Brian Mulroney is meeting his most enthusiastic response in his call for a more co-operative, more civil  Canada: It is an appeal with great attraction for the Canadian  people, moderate and reasonable by nature and weary of the  gunslinger confrontational style of Pierre Trudeau.  It is, however, true that Mr. Mulroney leads a party long  renowned for bickering and back-stabbing; he leads a party  which claims it will find the cure to the servere economic malaise  that afflicts the country by pulling us ever closer into the orbit of  our giant neighbour to the south.  It can be argued that our dependence on the United States.is/  what got us into trouble in the first place. If massive influxes of  foreign capital were the answer would we not now be. pro-1  sperous? No other industrialized country has so little ownership  of its own resources.  We may find that after the Progressive Conservatives sweep  to power, as it seems likely they will at this point, they will prove  to be as ineffectual as Diefenbaker did in 1958. If the real social  and economic problems now engulfing this land do not seem  ready to dissolve before the blarney of Mulroney any more than -  they did before the vision of Diefenbaker, there is little in the  Conservative record to indicate that harmony and co-operation  will stand the test of the enormous difficulties which lie waiting  for the next Canadian government.  Worth support  Specifically, in this riding the battle shapes up between the  Conservatives and the NDP and it would seem that Ray Skelly  should be the favoured choice. In his two sessions in parliament  Skelly has won the respect of all parties. He is a voice of reasoned moderation and integrity  There are those who claim to believe that we would be better  served by having one of many Conservative backbenchers this  election looks likely to produce but Skelly deserves to be reelected. Were all politicians in Ottawa of his calibre this country  would be in better shape than it presently is.  5 YEARS AGO  Sunshine Golf land Country Club proposes that the  regional board should turn  over 45 acres of Cliff Gilker  Park for the expansion of  golfing facilities.

Here, not  until rail reached water, and only where rail joined with water  transporation did cities spring up. Immigrants, all from-far away,  gathered at these points to handle, manage, and process the goods  that passed through these transition points. Prom them, passenger  ships and freighters set out 10 service logging, fishing, and mining  operations along the coast. In the process they nurtured both .city  and hinterland ports of call. Each assemblage of humanity developed  its own ethnic and cultural personalityi Even the configuration of  natural settings and of inanimate streetsjand buildings contributed to  the peculiar flavor that distinguished any one of these metropolitan  conclaves from all others. Neither the standardizing influences of  automobile and airplane nor the whimsy of construction styles would  completely destroy the uniquesness of each rainforest city. Victoria,  about 1920. Gowen Sutton postcard. L.R. Peterson ~ ���.  Musings  John Burnside  Herewith sonie pre-election musings about patronage and so-called  'wasted votes'.  Patronage, or the blatant use of  public funds, to.  reward" political  supporters, did'not begin with the  Pierre Elliot Trudeau/John Turner  explosion of crassness which marked the start of the 1984 election  campaign  and  did as much as  anything else to get the Liberal  push  for re-election off on the  wrong foot. Nor has it ended there  despite the belated revulsion about  such pork-barrelling manifested by  Brian Mulroney and the bulk'of  the Canadian people.  Bryce Mackasey's appointment   n  .l^as^ja^'ass^.or   to. ..Portugal,^,.*  /".'''^���wltrTbutVthe diplomatic civility .pfv j(,  consultation with the Portuguese"  and while a court in Montreal^ was  still   investigating   some   'murky  financial dealings on the part of the  much-rewarded,    high-living'  Mackasey;  may have reached  a  new   low   point   in   government  morality in this country. But if it is .  a new record for crass mis-use of',  public funds it is only narrowly  more blatantly reprehensible than  the Canadian norm. Mackasey's  appointment', and the others withv  which    Pierre   Trudeau   waved "  farewell to the Canadian people;, ���  are not different in kind from the  dispensation  of largesse  by the  Liberal    party   against,   which  Trudeau  himself railed in print  before he became a Liberal in the  1960's.  . Quite simply, for several genera-  tions.the practice of rewarding par-(  ty supporters with public money  has been an integral part of Canadian politic life. The senate itself is  a notorious centre of political  reward.  The disturbing point in this election is that while the seemingly  victory-bound Tories have decried  the Trudeau/Turner excesses, both ,  major parties have as a veiled election platform the promise of postelection goodies in return for votes.  Both parties.tell us we will be better  Patronage and votes  off if we elect a government  member, or in Manicouagan and  Vancouver .Quadra the voters are  invited to contemplate the windfalls that await a riding which elects  a prime minister.  Inured by long  familiarity to  such   standards   of   political  behaviour, the bulk of the Canadian people apparently feel that  bribery with public money, for that  is what it is, is politically normal.  They   fail > to  see that  financial  rewards bestowed on old  party  warhorses such as Bryce Mackasey  are not different in kind from promises made to reward voters with  public money, in return for political  ".support .Our parliamentary system  : is based on the premise that not all  will support* the government bur  ' that they will contribute to the coffers of the nation. It is an immorality for candidates to imply or  to promise more financial support  for ridings which elect government  members,  yet  both  the Conservatives and the Liberals do it and  the fact that it'has been done for so  long breeds'a cynical acceptance on  the part of the voting public.  The fact remains: to promise the  electorate returns for voting support is equally a misruse of public  funds to giving Bryce Mackasey ari  ambassadorship tie seems to have  ill-merited   on   top   of   his   Air  Canada pension from a previous  reward on.top of his generous pension as an MP of long-standing.  The main target of this implied  bribery or blackmail is the NDP.  The party is declared by national  figures who should know better to  be irrelevant. Why waste your vote!  pri a party which will not be the  government, is the question, when  ��� you can enjoy the rewards of  voting for a government'party.  I don't suppose it would do a  great deal of good Mo launch into  an impassioned harangue about  the value of voting for a principle,  be. it a Liberal, Conservative, or  NDP principle as opposed to  voting in the expectation of finan  cial return. What merit lies in af-  fecting a cynicism about politicians  and their mis-use of public funds if  we are going to accord them our  votes for, promised favours?  No, the best answer available at  the present time to the charge that  a vote for the NDP is a wasted vote  is provided for us by the conversion during this election of both  John Turner and Brian Mulroney  to the position that no one in  Canada should go free of paying  taxes because of loopholes in the  law that only the rich can afford to  find. Does anyone'dispute that had  Ed Broadbent not made an issue of  the rich who pay no taxes during  the-'second national debate' then  neither Mulroney' npr MJurner  would now be promising to tax the  rich?;  Throughout the history of the  CCF/NDP the story has been the  same. Always far from power, it  has elected a core of splendid  MP's in election after election  which have been the voice of cons  cience and decency in the Canadian  parliament. From that quarter has  come the moral pressure which  brought Canadian working men  and women decent pensions,  medical care, and a long line of  humanitarian legislation which the  parties of power and privilege had  no intention of introducing if left  to their own devices.  The. present MP for this riding,.  Ray ��ke1ly, provides just such apj  voice of reasoned decency. His  presence and the presence of his  party in the Canadian House of  Commons has.". a value far  outweighing the total number  elected. We in this riding are weli-?  Served by "a man of decency; !fiv-  telligence; and integrity, a worthy  sharer in trie tradition of intelligent  service created by J.S. Woods-  worth, Stanley Knowies, Tommy  Douglas and many others.

The B.C. Forest Service has been  granted permits to apply the controversial herbicide Round-up to  about 1500 acres of forest lands in  the Powell Riyerarea. v  The herbicide was recently  registered for forest uses.irr Canada  despite objections from trfe Federal  Department .of Fisheries and  Oceans. Their positions has' been  that the chemical should be tested:  prior to initiating large-scale aerialM  spray applications. M m^Mm-M  Their concern is based oh several  studies indicating that the chemical  may stay around longer than s.ug-,  gested in the chemical industry  tests; Studies by the Environmental  Protection Service have shown  Round-up to persist in stream  sediments upwards of 500 days.  Another independent study indicates a high toxicity to salmonid  fry at a specific stage in their,  development.  Federal fisheries recommended  against the registration of Roundup, but Agriculture Canada bowed  to a mounting lobby from the  forest industries and services thatM  wanted a greater selection of herbicides to choose from.  Round-up became highly suspect  several years ago when it was  discovered that almost' all of the  safety .studies were performed by  Industrial Bio-Test Laboratories,  ��� later convicted of fraud for falsifying test results. Almost all of the  tests performed to "prove" the  safety of Round-up for registration  purposes-were invalid..  M IBT performed the safety studies  on hundreds of pesticides, based  on which'they were registered as  "safe" for use. They specialized in  long-term and chronic toxicity  studies such as cancer- and birth  defects; 99 per cent of which were  found to be invalid.  Although Agriculture Canada  states that most of the IBT studies  have been replaced, as does the  U.S. Environmental Protection  Agency, it was recently discovered  in Washington, D.C. that "replaced'' may mean "agreed . to be  replaced". Apparently several dif- :  ferent classifications were lumped  into one, thereby misrepresenting  the true situation.   .  Even when the invalid data is  replaced, the public does not have  any access to it; it is considered to  be a trade secret by both industry ���  and government agencies. It  receives ho open peer review.  In California, a coalition of environmental groups are suing the  government through their "Right-  : To-Know" legislation for access to  toxicological studies on Round-up.  Monsanto, the chemical company  marketing the herbicide, is in the  federal courts trying to block that  and other court cases. U.S.  pesticide regulations have required  public discloure of toxicity testing  since 1978, however the chemical  industry has successfully kept it  tied up in courts ever since,, so the  legislation has never been enforced.  In Canada and B.C. it's a case of  spray now, test later. Last year,  permits were issued to spray about  3,000 hectares. This year permits  have been applied for to spray  about 30,000 hectares over a two to  three year period. About one-half  of that is Round-up, mostly issued  to the B.C. Forest Service.  As well as potential hazard for  salmon fry, two independent  studies indicate potential genotoxic  effects while a third shows that  Round-up can combine with  nitrogen in the soil to form a  nitrosamine compound that is likely to be a potent carcinogen similar  to many other nitrosamines.  "vieanwhije, in the U.S., a series  of court cases have stopped all  spraying of national forests and  bureau of land mangement forests.  The user agencies have refused to  comply with' the National Environmental Policy Act and  prepare as "worst case" impact  analysis. Both the secretaries *of  state and interior have been  threatened with jail sentences by a  federal court judge if they do not  comply.  Surely protecting our salihon  resources should take precedence'  over the continued spraying of the!  forests.  Anyone wishing to appeal the issuance of the permits must contact  the Environmental Appeal Board  before August 31.  '*�� M.

This country has  s'Xmly   known   class   rule.   This  s-Thediocre leadershipJ has survived  pby hanging.onto the coat tails of  Mhe British crown. Its class objec-  '\Jtives, however, have,been faithfully served at  the expense of the  * general  public���being  kept  at  a  ���safe distance by a well-disciplined  -army  of armed  goons,  and  its  ���challenges kept to a minimum by a  loyal media whose influence over  the mass mind is notoriously effective.  The interplay of rhetoric among  ^he contending  factions aspiring  'for top leadership serves to obscure  the bread and butter issues and  confuse the voters by focusing on  their personal appeal/with the exception of the NDP's Broadbent  who endeavours to outline his party's   political   programs   without  subterfuge. The media, however,  realizing the advantage of the NDP  ^conducting the contest with- clean  hands,    never    before   tested  federally, will exert special efforts  ���in downgrading the NDP with a  view to reducing its chances of victory.'      .   M   *'   ; '        .   ���  . As for the rightwing candidates,  Turner, realizing the tarnished image of the Liberal party, appearsto  be making studied bloopers publicly in order to direct the ball toward  his "class partners". With all  roadblocks accommodatingly  removed, Mulroney's Progressive  Conservative Party sees clear sailing in forming a majority government, prompting Mulroney to  blatantly reveal his party's objectives - in conformity with its basic  principles -of working closely with  Reagan on foreign policy, and to  attack both labour and the standard of living...of the masses, of  . course.  It is a marvel of modern communications for a party so named  to be accepted unquestioned.  Elementary perception will tell you  that the words "progressive" and  "conservative" are patently incompatible, suggesting speaking  from both sides of the mouth.  Dedicated totally to conservatism,  the injection of "progressive" can  only serve to deceive the naive and-  the uneducated.  The plans of our class enemy  could be scotched if we would  shake away our lethargy, think for  ourselves in terms of our common  interests and vote wisely with an  eye to the long term effects.

Dan Cross  Nuke sign up again  -Editor:  iThe sign announcing that the  Sunshine Coast is a nuclear free  zone will be put back in place on  August 31 at 4 .p.m. at the  . Langdale ferry terminal site by the  Sunshine Coast Peace Committee  members and supporters.  '������ ;The decision to make the Sunshine Coast a nuclear free area was  adopted over a year ago. It  represents the collective wish of  this community as expressed by  locally elected councils. That wish  has twice been thwarted by the  removal of the sign.  Our action in replacing the sign  is a small but expressive act which  will once again symbolize the fact  that the Sunshine Coast has taken  a first step towards stopping the  nuclear madness. We invite all concerned citizens to join us.  Sunshine Coast  Peace Committee  Choice is clear  Editor,  I am tired of hearing, "politicians are dishonest"  Do you know what? Voters are  dishonest!  .  People who wouldn't steal,  cheat, or tell other lies, will vote for  someone because they think he or  his party is "going to win". Their  vote tells him, tells the world, they  like his policy but they're lying.  If he does "win", what then? He  knows his backers voted the way  they thought everyone else would,  and everyone else did what they  thought the others would, and so  forth. Why should he keep his promises...who listened to those,  anyway? No wonder we're in a  mess.     v  I've shopped around for a person who seems competent, i can  agree mainly with him on things  which are important to me, like  salmon arid nukes. His party does  not have a long record of broken  promises. (Mr. Skelly, NDP.)  Regardless of who else votes for.  him, I will. It's an honest vote.  Iris Griffith  TOatis  -O  Get the school year off to a���  nutritious start with our_  Special  Dried Fruit & Nut Mixes"  filled out. As a matter of fact, I did  everything I was suppose to do. I  even brought my own box just like  they asked me to do.  The only thing I forgot was my  cheque stub. So the lady looked up  at me and said in.a rude voice,  "We told you last time to bring in  your cheque stub or a photocopy.  Then she turned and looked at  one of her fellow workers and told  him that I'd forgotten my stub, at  the same time letting everybody  know there was another idiot in  line who had forgotten his stubs.  She told her friend: "Do you  know practically everybody forgets  their stubs." Letting him know  nobody listens anymore.  After all that was done she said,  "Okay we will help you this time,  but if you forget next time we can't  help you," then she sent me to  another desk where this other  fellow was getting in trouble  because he goes to the food bank  every time it opens and was told  not to come back unless he really  needs help. The poor.man sat there  like he was going to jail.  Then it was my, turn. She asked  me the same questions all over  again, like how much do I get from  welfare, how much is hydro. After  that she got up and talked with  another lady and agreed I was not  eligible for food. I was allowed to  shop then but that would be it. So I  told them to forget it. I don't need  to be treated like that.   -  I admit I should h"tve shopped  ' for that one last time because of  , my family but I was so ashamed to  "be treated like that in front of all  those people so I just left and will  <s,not go back.  My wife and baby and I are just.  ^ going to have to try and get by on  ' wliat we have. Thank you.  **    From someone who really did  need help.  Raphael George & family.  Editor:  On behalf of the Sunshine Coast  Environmental Protection Project,  I would like to thank two local  women for their recent and ongoing endeavours. Iris Griffith is to  be congratulated on her excellent  appeal against the aerial spraying  of 2,4-D in the Earle Creek area.  Fran   Burnside  has  given  ac  curate, complete and unbiased  reports on all meetings concerning  the use of herbicides on the Sunshine Coast, and her work and interest is most appreciated. Thanks  to both women and more thanks to  those who attended the appeal  August 14, the obvious interest was  impressive.  M.

Last week while the children  were swimming at "the logs" on  Waugh Lake their.pet dog was killed by a hit and run driver of a pickup. If it had been a little dog I  would think maybe the driver  didn't notice, but it was a big dog.  The pick-up was going out of Egmont at approximately 3 p.m. At  that time, travelling that way the  shadows are bad and sunlight blinding for driving.. '   ���  If it was an accident he should  have stopped and helped the two.  little girls. Thanks to Grace Sharp  who on her way home from work-  stopped and helped them take their  dead pet home.  The locals just know that's a  slow down area in the summer  when children, dogs, bikes and cars  are there.  What to do? Put slow signs up?  Put dogs on a leash? Put a path on  the narrow road for walking? It  could have been a child.  PEOPLE ON THE MOVE  Nice to see Ken and Shirley Jeffries home for a visit; the Larson  grandchildren coming and going;  Iris and Elaine Griffith home from  a trip with the fishermen; Dot  Silvey commuting between P.O.  and St. Mary's.

The place and dates of registration are shown In a block at  the end of this message about scouting.  Lord Baden-Powell's ideas begat the-scouting movement  In England in 1907. Based on a programme of great appeal  for boys, scouting has become worldwide. Its purposes, promise and law are timeless and universal.  As an educational movement for young people,  scouting's purpose is to contribute to their personal and  social development. It is a voluntary, non-political movement which is open to all, and is based on:  #Adherence to spiritual principles;  #Loyalty to one's country in harmony with the promotion  of peace, understanding and co-operation;  ^Participation in the development of society;  #Respect for the dignity of one's fellow man.and for the  "REAL WIN"  K.LD; Winner  .   integrity of the natural world;  #Resppnsibillty for the development of oneself;  #A method of progressive self-education comprising programmes adapted to various age groups, learning by  performing activities in small groups including contact  with, nature.  The words in thelnvestiture ceremony are, "Your are now  a member off the worldwide brotherhood off scouting."  Many of us will remember good times as cubs and scouts,  of the promises we made, the left hand shake, and the expression, "Once a scout, always a scout."  The youth of our society craves for something to do. Participation in organized activities that at the same time are  builders of good character would appear to be needed more  than ever, and should be encouraged.

Coast News, August 27,1984  by. Peter Trower  If lucky, one got to hear Veronica Plewman share the flight of imagination which resulted in the paintings of her "Journey" series,  part of her current exhibit at the Arts Centre in Sechelt. ���  ���Kran Burnside pholo  Some weeks ago in this paper, I  described the last meeting between  ' Yvonne ahd myself and poet Earle  Birney* a somewhat droll affair involving the search for a lost car in  Toronto in the rain. At this time, I  had no idea when or where we  would cross paths again. Thus, I  am very pleased to announce that  Earle Birney will be making two  appearances at Chatelech secondary school in Sechelt on  September 9, under the auspices of  the Writer's Forge. It will serve as a  somewhat-belated capper to the recent and highly-successful Festival  of the Written Arts.  Earle Birney, of course, is no  stranger to the west coast and this  immediate area. One of his more recent poems "Moon Down Elphinstone" (Raincoast Chronicles Six-  Ten) deals specifically with Gibsons  and certain tragic events that took  place here during World War I.  Much of his very best poetry draws  its inspiration from coastal themes  including Earle's own personal  favourite among his vast output, the  At the Arts Centre  Plewman simply dazzling  by John Burnside  Longtime friends and total  strangers alike were amazed and  delighted at the Veronica Plewman  art show now on display at the  Sunshine Coast Arts Centre in  Sechelt. Veronica the'artist is ever  in transition, ever improving, while  Veronica the person retains the  charm, integrity and modesty  which have .graced her being,  throughout the transitional stages  of her art.  On display in this show are some  urban studies done since Veronica  left Gibsons a few years ago. Mainly done in coloured pencil, they  reveal a breathtaking intensity of  colour in the medium and a mark-  3f  Coast  Classical  Danee  ^e  Miss- Verity instructs  ELEMENTARY,  INTERMEDIATE, &  PROFESSIONAL Ballet  Technique.

Veronica's work has always had  a stunning attention to detail and  the present work loses nothing of  . its charm while broadening its imaginative scope. More than one  visitor to the show was heard to lament at Saturday's official opening  that all of the work'on display had  already been bought.  These are graceful works which  positively glow with colour.  One visitor from Los Angeles  who worked with Veronica briefly  on the Coast News a few years  back was absolutely staggered by  the intensity. of' colour achieved  with coloured pencil.;  A personal reminiscence about  Gibsons  Art Show  Showing how at the "Showpiece  Frames" Gallery (above the NDP  Bookstore) in Gibsons are the  works of North Vancouver artist  Marion Cooper.  Mainly watercolours and wash  and ink sketches, Ms Cooper's  marine scenes are set on the Sunshine Coast in the Hopkins, Gibsons and Sechelt areas, and have  been done when she stays with her  daughter, Mrs. David Dunn, a  summer resident of Sechelt.  Ms Cooper's show will exhibit  "until September 27, and the public-  is invited to a reception to meet the  artist-on Thursday, August 30,  from 3 until 6 p.m. Refreshments  will be served.

Why not sell the  idea of cartooning ads, utilizing  Veronica's graphic skills: It worked  splendidly. The difficulty arose  when it was estimated how much  cartooning Veronica was going to"  be called upon to do.  It was an unusually demanding  week in a business where such are  not unusual and the upshot of the  selling idea was that . Veronica  stood on her feet non-stop from 9  a.m. on Sunday morningtill 4 p.m.  on Monday fulfilling the obliga?  tions Penny had so lightheartedly  undertaken. That is not all.

It would require several volumes  to    properly   chronicle.   Earle  Birney's distinguished and colourful career. A brief reprise will have  to  suffice  here. -Bbrri   in   1904,'  Birney grew up in the B.C. interior,  primarily in Creston and developed,  a. life-long fascination with mountains and mountain-climbing alorig  with a love of literature. He subsidized his later education with a  variety   pf   jobs   ranging   from  surveyor's helper to farm labourer  and graduated from UBC in 1926.  For the next   15  years,   Earle  Birney's   life   revolved   around  various   universities  in .Toronto,  Utah,   London,   California   and  Vancouver,   which   he   attended  both   as   graduate   student   and  teacher. He developed a passion  for travel that remains with him to  this day. Birney wrote poetry of increasing   excellence   throughout  these years and met most of the  great   literary   "names"   of   the  period. He also became a devout  Marxist and travelled to Norway to  interview Leon Trotsky.  In 1942, Birney's first collection  of poetry: "David and Other  Poems", won the Governor-  General's Award. By this time, he .  was married and had a son. Birney  joined the Canadian' Army and  served as aVmajor in the North  West Theatre of Europe. He was  invalided out at the war's end with  a combination of diptheria and  dysentry, just in time to receive a  second Governor-General's Award  for his second book of poems: "���  "Now is Time". Birney's war experiences would result in the comic  novel: MTurvey" (1949), his most  successful foray^into prose.  Following the, waVi Birney  returned to, UBC Where he taught  English to ' undergraduates and  struggled to establish a creative  writing department against  strenuous bureaucratic opposition.  During his free time, he continued _  to write, publish and travel. Birney  stayed-at his university post for the  better part of-twb decades. In 1963, ���  largely, due to his efforts, a full-  time creative writing department  was finally established. In 1965,  Birney resigned his professorship  to devote his full attention to  creative pursuits. He left the west  coast in the early seventies to take  up permanent residence in Toronto. ' -'"vM'    -   . .  As a writer and poet, Earle  Birney's achievements are unsurpassed in Canadian literature. His  poetry exhibits an,enormous range  and ^versatility. He has written  everything from stately villanelles.  to the most abstract and experimental concrete poetry. Birney  is by far the most adventurous of  the "older" Canadian- poets and  probably the best all-around practitioner of the art in Canada today.  He.was the subject of a recent CBC  film documentary and. has recorded his work with th,e percussion  group "Nexus".. His definitive  books include: "Collected Poems"  (1975); "Ghost in the Wheels"  (1977);    and    "Fall    By    Fury"  (1978),all published by McClelland  & Stewart.  At the age of 80 when many peo-  .ple -are confined to wheelchairs,  Earle Birney retains an astounding  Mvit?ility. The list of books he still  Mpilaiis tO:write is formidable.

Would you vote in favour in the  House of Commons of Canada being declared a Nuclear Free Zone?  Why? '  Wayne Nesbitt, Liberal:  As a MP I will work hard to try  and make Canada a nuclear free  zone. I believe there must be a  political will on the part of all  .; members; to achieve this aim.  Ray Skelly, NDP:  I woulcivote to have Canada  declared . a nuclear free zone  (eliminate nuclear weapons, mining'and nuclear power).  Mike Hicks,  Progressive Conservative  A   Progressive   Conservative  Government   has   historically  declared  Canada a nuclear free  , zoneM In 1964, John Diefenbaker  .was defeated by the Liberal', and  NDP party for refusing to deploy  the Bomark Missile in Canada. In  1979, Joe Clark" was in process of  removing   the   nuclear   weapons  from   Comox,   and  was  againa  defeated.   Mr.   Mulroney   has  ^repeated   our.'' pledge   to   keep  i nuclear weapons. from Canadian '  soil. ..',,    '  Does your party see increased  Catuidian ownership and control,  of its resources and industries as  beneficial to the Canadian  economy? *  Wayne Nesbitt, Liberal:  We welcome foreign investment  as long as it meets the criteria of  our national aim and goals. There  We some industries in which  foreign investment is not welcome.  Riy Skelly, NDP: ^  ) The NDP advocates greater  Canadian ownership and control  of the Canadian economy and  resources.  We oppose the Liberal and Conservative parties attempts to sell off  Canadian companies and resources .  to foreign investors.  Mike Hicks,  Progressive Conservative  A Progressive Conservative  Government will work to maximize  C anadian ownership of resources  and industry. We will, however,,  encourage rather than deter foreign  join involvement in industries and  areas where Canadians are unwilling to invest.  "Would your party cut funding to  any social services (e.g. welfare,  medicare, VUdiXX-XXX' ������������ X^xXX:.  Waype Nesbitt,Liberal:  r Absolutely not. It has been the  Liberal Party that has brought into  being all the social programs we  now enjoy. For example, it was  under a Liberal government that  old age pensions, Canada pensions, Medicare, family  allowances, unemployment in-  surance, maternity benefits, labour,  relations laws, allowances for the  disabled, guaranteed income supplement, were provided.  Ray Skelly, NDP:  The NDP would not cut social  services. We, would improve the  deliyafy of health services and iri-  cpnie.isupport programs would be  improved, notably pensions.

MA   Progressive   "jpnservauye  (tovemment^will maintain aU social  services.Federal contributions to  Medicare will be increased to guard  against extra billing. X  Do you think the standards of  testing of herbicides and pesticides  by   the   federal   Department   of  Agriculture are adequate? Do you  think the^use of 2,4-D "should be  banned?  Wayne Nesbitt, Liberal:  ��� The-'testing ^dvstandards are  adequate. However, problems occur iitvthe appfaation and supervisioni Mof these standards. There  should be close supervision of the  application of ' herbicides and  pesticides, however, this is a provincial matter."    :  Ray Skelly, NDP:  The federal Department of  Agriculture should be the agency  responsible for approving  pesticides.. A new stringent approval procedure should be  developed along with an effective  ��� appeal and review process.

Research into  alternate pesticides is a priority.  2,4-D might be useful in some ,  areas but should be outlawed in  areas such as Roberts Creek where  environmental damage and harm  to residents is a possibility.  What is your party's solution to the  problems in the West Coast  Fishery?  Wayne Nesbitt, Liberal:  Immediate action is needed to  limit the catch and have a more appropriate sharing of the catch.  There should be a buy back program and there should be action on  small stream enhancement. We  need to increase the number of.  fisheries officers to enforce the  regulations arid monitor foreign  vessels fishing: off our west coast.  In addition we need to develop international treaties with countries  other than the United States. We  need to develop foreign markets.  develop efficient processing of the  catch and increase research efforts  in this area.  Ray SkeHy, NDP:  1. Two hundred million dollars  spent on salmonid enhancement  emphasizing small streams.  2. Environment protection and integrate resource management.  3. A buy back program with  specific fleet structure targets.  4. Interception prevention  agreements. A high seas treaty to  prevent Japanese interception of  immature Canadian stocks. An interception treaty to prevent continued US interception of Canadian stocks.  5. independent fisheries resource  data council responsible for gathering data on stocks independent of  DFO. The data board made up of  representatives of the industry user  groups. DFO and representatives  chaired by an academic would  evaluate stocks and recommend  fishing plans.  6. Effective consultation. West  Coast fisheries management board  with user group elected representatives, accountable to their  organizations.  7.   Coast   community  economic  development board to ensure no  loss of economic lease to. coast  communities.  Mike Hicks,  Progressive Conservative  The Pacific Salmon has been  assaulted at every stage of their life  cycle. A Progressive Conservative  Government will enhance, protect  and properly manage the harvest at  every stage of their life cycle.  1) Protect the Habitat. 2)  Rehabilitation of all coastal  stream and creeks. 3) $200 million  for small stream enhancement. 4)  Monitor" the off-shore fleet and  curtail foreign interception. 5)  Restructure fisheries management  to include a west coast member of  parliament to manage solely the  west coast fisheries in combination  with an industrial board. The Industrial Board will be made from  elected representatives of the Seine,  Troll, Gillnet, Sport and Native  fishermen. 6) $100. million dollars  buy-back - boat and licence,  licence to be destroyed, displaced  fishermen and displaced boats to  be used for enhancement and enforcement. 7) Exempt all primary  industries including loggers and  fishermen from 9��7o fuel excise tax.  r^ ~. ^ the finest top line  &rS$&      machine on  /$X$��      the market today...  ^fi^ Husqvarna 980  vj^�� Regularly priced at '1599*.  742 Westview Centre.

The pro-  granrhas been active from January  tiil.the end of June.  During the summer months we  have been fortunate to have Alan  Fraser volunteer his time to produce  comic strips as part of our advertis-:,  ing. Alan Fraser is 30 years old and;  works for Avalon Log Sorting. He  has been drawing comic strips since  he was in high school. Thank you  Alan.  Illiteracy has been described as  the _invisible handicap. A person  who is functionally illiterate does  not look or sound any different.  Since they have poor reading and'  writing skills, it is very difficult to let  them know about the ABLE Pro  gram. We felt that comic strips  would attract their attention, in a  comic strip there is not a lot of  reading involved so a person with  poor reading skills could possibly  read the whole comic or get the  general message.  The ABLE Program uses  volunteer tutors and coordinators.  The tutors volunteer two hours per  week to work with a student, usually in the student's home. The tutors  are trained to use a fundamental approach that builds on the student's  experience and knowledge. At present, we have tutors available in the  Gibsons, Sechelt and Halfmoon  Bay areas.  If you know of any adults who  could benefit from this program,  please let them know about us. For  more information on the program  and for students to arrange interviews, call 885-3512 and ask to  speak to Angela Minten.  Say, aren't you the new  man?

Here's the main drift and results.  Herb said it was great to see the  kids' eyes when after running  races, they came to collect their  silver dollars, crackerjacks and  chocolate bars.  There was a well attended  church service (with great singers!)  and the Legion ran games for the  kids. Harold Clay, Les Beharrell  and helpers put a lot of effort into  that. Shriners and Legion ladies  cooked up a storm  Pender Harbour artists had an  art showing in Morrison Hall. Ada  Preist was first overall and in landscape; Bea MacFariane was first  for still life; Noreen Marshall was  first for portrait. All received  photo albums as prizes.  A big thank you should go to  two fellows who worked behind  the scene to make this all happen.  Lions president Doug Fielding and  secretary Ted Alexander worked  every night for a week mowing five  acres of grass!  Here's a list of donations and  winners. At this point I'd like to  say something on behalf of these  merchants. They give and give to  local functions. They get door prized and donated to bits, but they  still do it. Why? Is jt just good  business?   Not   necessarily,  although it usually is. But maybe  more  because  they  care  about  Pender Harbour and they've made  a commitment to living and working here. All that pop, ice cream,  those prizes, someone who's trying  to make a living here donated for <  you and your kids enjoyment.

ASSAULT: PART 12
SEXUAL ABUSE
How does it happen? We hear of
children who have been abducted
g6ing to school or coming back
home, brutally assaulted and/or
murdered. Certainly thesecases do
occur but they represent only the
end of a continuum of sexual child
abuse.
What happens to the child who
is sexually abused by close
relatives', by people in their immediate environment whom they
know and trust.
.The trusted male adult may approach the child at a very early age
under the guise of play. He may
admire her genitals or indulge in
games where he "catches" her.
These games can become part of
their relationship, teaching her at a
very early age to accept sexual advances from him and thereby
preparing her for the intercourse
that often follows.
Some male adults however, do
not follow this pattern and may
rape their daughters at a much
younger age. He may show affection all the while he is getting his
way but if she tries to end it the affection changes and then he orders
her to do what he wants. If She
refuses, he may beat her or
threaten her. She may never dare
refuse him again.
The young child who is being
sexually abused ma;|. experience
recurrent states of acute anxiety
and fear but she may have no
through a sliding glass window'. A
small amount of coins and sorpe
food were taken.
Several boats moored at the Porpoise Bay Marine were broken into
on August 22. Fishing tackle taken
from the boats was spread on the
wharf and some of the tackle was
stolen. Police are still investigating.
The break-ins occurred during the
night.
On August 23, a shed located in
the Madeira Park area was broken
into and two camper size appliances valued at $600 were stolen.
Taken were a fridge and a stove.
The theft is believed to have occurred at any time since August 13.
Our
town
words with which to describe what
is happening to her. She may cling
desperately to her mother or wake
up in the night crying with "night
terrors".
An abused child 'generally feels
that they will not be believed or
that they will be blamed for the
abuse they are receiving. One of
the major effects of sexual abuse is
the inability to speak out and the
isolation that is felt. The effects of
sexual abuse in childhood are
lasting.
Children do not have the
knowledge or independence to
make a decision about sex with an
adult. They have been brought up
to obey adults. They depend on
adults for the resources to live.
Many abusers especially in the
sanctity of the family are able to
define the child's entire reality—to
tell her it's normal to have sex with
daddy/adults, that it's sex education, or that it will make him happy-
Young children do not necessarily know what adult sex is about!
They want to be held, to have love
and affection. If this makes the
adults feel sexual it is they who
choose to act on those feelings not
the child.
Next week, sexual abuse detection; physical and behavioral.

No winner last week.  Photographed head well reappear with increased prize.  Weather condition's permitting,  the Sechelt Forest District wi!i;.be  undertaking a controlled slash  burn in the Pender Harbour area  this week, possibly as ' early as  Monday. Ideally the blaze will be  set in the'late afternoon so that  night coolness and dampness will  assist jn putting it out.  " The area to be burned is a 20  hectare (50 acre) section 500 metres  south of the Majaspina Substation. It has been logged of alder  and maple, and after the alder and  maple slash has been burned it will  be planted with cedar and Douglas  fir next .spring. The area is considered a 'high' site - a very good  growing area.  According to Sechelt Forest  District's Paul Harper, resource  officer-protection, the reason for  this burn is to get rid of twigs,  leaves, small boughs and debris to  create plantabie spots. Such a burn  also reduces the hazard factor of  such an area by getting rid of the  really fine fuel that in very hot, dry  conditions might, burn spontaneously or be easily ignited by  human carelessness.  Using cnarts which co-ordinate  weather conditions - temperature,'  humidity, rain and wind, - the  moisture code and drought code,  condition of the debris to be burned, how much they want to burn  and what kind of layer they want  to be left on the ground after the  burn, forestry officials have deter  mined how hot and how fast a fire -  is   required.   Because  deciduous  leaves like, alder and ample are  more moist and harder to bum  than ��� fir .boughs, dry conditions  such as now exist are necessary for  a successful burn of, this type of  slash/  When weather conditions are  ��� right, cat guards and fire lanes  built, hoses and sprinklers in place,  managers and crews in position  and air tankers on red alert, the fire  will be started by a 'flying drip  Baby sitting co-op  start-up  The Suncoast Players will open  their fifth season with, a studio  night on September 22 in the  Roberts Creek hall. The Players  studio  nights  have. proved  very  . popular with local audiences in the  past as they are set in an informal  cabaret style, arid are designed to  encourage club members to try new  material and present work in progress. The club extends an invitation to any local playwrights, directors, or actors who would like to  use this forum for a performance  of their work. To date there are  ; two productions scheduled, which  leaves room for two more one act  . plays. Anyone who is interested in  performing should contact Fred  Inglis. at 886-3890.  At thistime the Suncoast Players  would like to invite all interested  people to consider membership in  this active theatre group. Memberships run from September to  September and are available at  both individual and family rates.  This year, like last, the Players plan  a very full season of theatre, with,  three major productions scheduled, and two studio.nights. In addition to that there will be workshops  offered to members on make up,  cpstumingM directing, and  playwriting, run.by professionals in  the field. Why not get involved? If  you are interested, call Mary  Baecke at 885^9056.      :  This year's productions will include the studio night in  September, a suitable thriller for  Hallowe'en, a children's Christmas  production, a studio night featuring quest productions from the  North Shore Zone of-Theatre B.C.  in February, and the Players '85  festival entry in late March, early  April. There is talk that another  three evenings of Theatresports  will be squeezed in also, featuring  teams from Calgary, Vancouver,  Seattle and the Sunshine Coast.

Ones  of fire will release a burning  arranged pattern that ensures the  wind will always be drawn into the  centre of the fire, thus helping to  prevent the spread of the fire to  neighbouring areas as well as producing a very hot, fast-burning  fire.  "This burn will only take an  hour, if that," said Harper. "And  with a fast burn like this the soil  will actually stay cool. Ideally we  would burn into a rain, but we've  got a good burn plan in place,  helicopters and crews arranged,  and I'm very confident about the  outcome."  Although residents are being advised of the burn, Harper recommends that anyone who sees smoke  and is not sure if it is coming from  the controlled burn site should not  hesitate to call the forestry office at..  885-5174 and report the sighting.
