Array LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  VICTORIA, B.C.  V8V1X4  BSA  f-;xxx:;mm:mm^xX^^s^a00': * tSm  -r  -Fran Burnside pholo  It was a White Christmas on the Sunshine Coast, and adding a merry After their songfest they were treated to fortune cookies from  touch to the festive season were these carollers from Cedar Grove Seaview Gardens, then warmed up with hot chocolate and cookies at  elementary, directed by teacher Pat Storey, who delighted all within the Lox and Bagel Shoppe.  hearing distance of Gibsons' Pioneer Park on Friday, December 21.  Cap College offers  Pioneer fish farm course  In the new year Continuing  Education will be offering a  unique and innovative course in  aquaculture, developed here on  the Sunshine Coast to meet the  needs of the local industry and  to create opportunities for  future employment.  Marilyn Tentchoff and Jon  van Arsdell are the designers of  the course which offers not only  a thorough basic theory of  aquaculture but also gives half  the time to in-field practical applications of the theory. It is an  18 week program and covers  most aspects of aquaculture,  from the anatomy and  physiology of fish foihow to  clean the fish, from hov^ to test  water samples for impurities to  how to fix the plumbing* one of  the major practical skills involved in fish farming.  Marily Tentchoff, who  developed the academic side of  the program explained, "For  every theoretical lesson we go ������  into the field to learn its practical application. The course is  primarily for...those-'.who'll be  hired to work at fish farming,  although it is also good for  those starting their own  business," she continued.  Because the course is an expensive undertaking for the  school district federal funding  was sought, and the Sunshine  Coast Employment Develop-:  ment Society here led the way  by applying for Youth Training .  Opportunity funding.  ���;��� The target group for the YTO  are those between the ages of 17  and 20, who have been out of:  school for more than six months  but less than 12 months, and  who are unemployed. The YTO  students will also be required to  take additional life skills  courses, such as time management after the 18 weeks of  aquaculture, as well as four  months of on,the-job training  for which they will receive a  small living.allowance and room  and board, provided by the fish  farmer.  Others wishing to take the  aquaculture course need no  prerequisites, but must be interviewed by a reviewing committee and must show that they  understand the working conditions and be able to adequately  cope with the technical aspects  of the course.  Malaspina College also offers  an aquaculture course but it is  mostly academic and takes two  years to complete. Because  there are several fish farms being set up now, there is a call for  skilled workers in the near  future.  Val Silver of SCEDS calls the  Continuing Education course  very good; "Employers need  people who know how to run a  boat and fix the plumbing as  well as knowing the more  theoretical aspect of the  business and there are not marty  people out there who can do  that."  The fees, $900 for 18 weeks,  including $250 for equipment  and supplies, may be lower according to the amount of YTO  response, as federal funding includes a program development  grant for each student.  Ricki Moss, director of Continuing Education explains,  "We cannot afford to offer a  cheap course because the school  district does not have the funding, but this works out at about  $2 an hour for instruction plus  the cost of expenses. We have  paid to develop the program  and hopefully a good enrolment  will give us enough federal funding to reduce fees across the  board of older students."  There is no guarantee of  employment after completion  of the course but since there are  so few qualified to work in the  field, there will be opportunities, not only in salmon  farming but also in shellfish farming, a far less capital intensive  undertaking for which the  course is also suitable.  Join Van Arsdell, who designed the practical side of the  course points out that shellfish  fanning is one area where  British Columbia leads the way.  "This is where induced spawning for oysters was developed,  mainly by the Jones brothers on  Lasquiti Island. This is not an  economically difficult business  to set up, and this area is ideal  for it," he continued.

Layoffs on hold  Trustees fight for funds  Trustee Edmonds, newly  elected chairman of the school  board began her first meeting  December 18 with a statement  of her personal credo as a  trustee of public education on  the Sunshine Coast. It read as  follows: "As guardians of the  public school system I would  like to call upon each board  member to remember WHY we  are here. Each one of us will  need to hold strongly to the  principles that brought us to this  board table. First and foremost  in our minds are the children in  the classrooms. In this difficult  year ahead we will be tested  many times over. I believe we  must preserve the principles of  representative and responsible  government. As elected  representatives we must ensure  that control of our public  schools remains as closely as  possible in the hands of the  parents whose children are being educated. We must  challenge this government to be  responsible for its actions. We  have set our priorities within  our district, now we must  challenge this government to^do  the same within pyr provice."  Much of the meeting was  devoted to further discussion  and clarification of the issue  concerning Roberts Creek,  parents. Chairman Edmonds  announced that a decision had  been made to postpone any action which would affect Roberts  Creek until February 1985, pending the hoped for meeting the  Education Minister Heinrich.  Such a meeting however is  not a simple matter of agreeing  to a mutually acceptable time as  one might expect. The board  has been informed their staff  must first meet with deputy  Finance Minister Jack Fleming  to discuss the $210,000 budget  shortfall on January 3, bringing  with them the answers to 11  questions required by the  ministry. These questions, explained Secretary Mills, are  complex and he expected to  have; to devote time during the  Christmas holidays to prepare  the answers.  Please turn to page 11  Good Samaritans appear  Food Bank  finds a home  Three good Samaritans from  Halfmoon Bay have come forward and given the Sechelt  Food Bank the use of a building  for storing food supplies and  from which to distribute food  each month. They will also be  footing the hydro bill. The new  building, which was donated in  response to an article in the  December 17 issue of the Coast  News, is situated across from  the Sechelt Legion on Wharf  Road, and was previously used  as a machine shop.  Maria Lwowski, of the  Sechelt Food Bank, is delighted  with the offer but is looking forward to several weeks of hard  work to get the interior ready  for the first food bank day of  the new year, January 16.  "We need carpenter  volunteers to put up some  panelling and build us some  shelves," she told the Coast  News. "Anything that can be  used for finishing will be  welcome; like 2x4's, panelling,  plywood, drywall, hinges, nails;  you name it, we can use it!" she  went on.  If you have any such  materials, spare paint, a couple  of hours of sji|are time to  volunteer, please? call Maria  Lwowski at 885-5532.  not over yet  by Dianne Evans  Another chapter unfolded  recently in the lengthy Gibsons/Area.E boundary revision  dispute, when Gibsons Planner  Rob Buchan put before the Gibsons Planning Committee  meeting on December 12, his  proposal for future liaison between district and municipality  in agricultural land reserve activity. It is no longer mandatory  for the municipality to advise  the district of any such activity,  but Planner Buchan expressed  the opinion that consultation  and co-operation were desirable  to avoid confusion.  However, he felt obliged to  present this proposal with the  advice that Clerk-treasurer Lor-  rain Goddard had a report  which may influence the committee in their considerations.  Mrs. Goddard had received a  -telephone call from the Ministry  of Municipal Affairs because  the town's letter outlining its  modified proposal had not yet  been received by that office.  Instead, a petition had been  received signed by Area E  residents and sent by Area E  Director, also Chairman of the  Regional Board, Jim Gurney,  opposing boundary extension.  The clerk-treasurer was surprised, since she had believed, as  had other members of the Gibsons Council that the matter  was now resolved, with the  passing of a motion by the  SCRD not to oppose inclusion  of two applications under question.  "I can only throw my hands  in the air," said Alderman John  Burnside, who is the Gibsons  representative at the SCRD.  "We had what I thought was  agreement about this; and if  that's the old; petition (against  the Johnstone/Buchan report)"  he went on, "my hands are still  in the air." In a mood of  frustration and disappointment  the committee agreed to table-  any further discussion with the:  SCRD on the ALR until 1986.

Coast News, December 31,1984  Images sfiarecl  Another year has slid by, they do seem to slide faster  these days. Another year with a host of incidents and images. Another year of memory.  On page seven of this issue of the Coast News, Fran has  compiled a collage of 1984 in pictures from our files. It is  -' an arbitrary selection, probably no two people would have  chosen the same pictures. But memory is a bit like that,  too. No two people conjure up the same memories of any  given year either and some of the images chosen may trigger other memories for you.  The pictures are in random order, too. The. first  numbered shows Sarah Baptiste officiating at the opening  of the Sechelt Indian Band Fish Hatchery.  Hubert Evans is honoured at home by Simon Fraser  University in the second picture with his friend and admirer Margaret Laurence beside him for the occasion.  Mayor Larry Labonte of Gibsons shares a proud moment with the minister ofimunicipal affairs Bill Ritchie in  the third numbered picture as the Gibsons Marina is officially declared open.  ; * The appearance of Earle Birney at the Sechelt Arts Cen-  ]: tre has to rank as the literary event of 1984. Picture #4 captures a moment from his evening reading.  :: . Shirley Vader of Pender Harbour was honoured last  January for her pioneer work in bringing the Pender Har-  '-' bour swimming pool into being. She is radiant in picture  ::,#5-  Renovations to the storefront of Seaview Gardens  Restaurant in Gibsons Village brought the name of Wally  Graham back onto Main Street for the first time in many  .  years. The Coast News office was flooded with phone calls  '.. when the name appeared and we recorded the reap-  .  pearance in picture #6. -  ;���.     The struggle to erect a sign proclaiming the Sunshine .  Coast a nuclear-free zone was begun in July with what was  r tp be the first of three such raisings during the year.  The lock-out at the pulp mill struck a chill in the hearts  of the community in February, a community which was  already finding the economy quite frosty enough.  The well-known Joe visited the Coast during the sum-  <.' mer and Coast-News' cameras were there to record the  X visit. He is shown greeting supporters in picture #9.  ' ; The much-beloved Glen Kraus of Roberts Creek was  X commemorated in the naming of the new hall early in the  year.  Brett  McGillivray, regional director,  holds the  nameplate proudly in picture #10.  ;; The indefatigable Iris Griffiths of Egmont took a prominent role in the pesticide appeal in August.

Gibsons Kiwanis marked their thirtieth year of community sei*yi(-es in November. Some of the original movers  in the club as pictured^ in picture #17.  The Sunshine Coast Tourist Association was behind the  re-christening of the dogfish as the B.C. Salmon Shark in  late 1984. The moment was marked with champagne in  early December.  So there you have some images of a year. We hope that  those who shared these memories with us will enjoy them  with us.  And to all who live on the Sunshine Coast with whom  we have shared a few memories over the years may we  wish for a few more in the years to come. A happy and  prosperous 1985 to one and all. ���  John Burnside  "What difference  does it make?"  New Year's is both a melancholy and joyful time; the  old year's passing reminds us of our march towards death,  and the new year's advent gives us hope. It is now that we  yearn to change, to make our lives better, and we begin the  process by making resolutions, commitments to ourselves.  If there was one resolution that could do for us all in  1985, it would be this: 'I resolve to banish apathy from  my life and to speak put when my convictions are  challenged. I resolve never again to say "what difference  does it make? I can't do anything about UM' "  In this past year-we have seen growing numb s of people learn to live without an adequate income, we have seen  our education and health care systems slashed, we have  seen people dependent on the generosity of others to eat a  daily meal, we have seen pepple in other continents starve  by the tens pf thousands, we have seen innocents die in  scores of wars around the world, we have seen more  billions allocated to arms production, and yet there are still  those amongst us who say, "What difference can I  make?" and then do nothing.  One letter to the prime minister or the minister of education may not make a difference, that's true, but send 100,  or 1000, and suddenly the powers-that-be are worried.  They are the seekers of power, we are the people who  make it a gift with our votes.  We have become desenstitized by the slickness of the  political marketing machine; we in north America have the  dubious ability to choose our political leaders in just the  same way as we choose a new brand of toothpaste or laundry soap. We go where the market-research folk say we  will, and we "buy" another term of the fellow with the  most personable style and the best speechwriters. We have  forgotten that we have a voice that can and should be  heard.  Let's do it in 1985, let's stand up and face a world that  badly needs changing, and do it with all the courage we  can. If we have convictions and principles we hold dear,  let's be brave enough to support them with action, and  maybe we can turn the tide and make things better in a  way that really counts.  A Happy and Peaceful New Year to you all.  Dianne Evans  John Burnside  The turn of the year is a time.  for looking both backwards and  forwards. The Romans knew  this with their representation of  Janus, the two-headed god who  looks back and forward, and  for whom January is named.  Backwards, we look at 1984 a  year inescapably linked with  George Orwell's chilling novel  so entitled. There must be a collective sigh of relief that, where  we live, things are not as bad as  depicted in Qnvell's fiction. But-  there are enough foreshadow-  ings to , make one uneasy;  nonetheless.  Perhaps; the Orwellian award  of   the   year ��� could   go. our ���  ministry of thejenvironment in;:!  , ,Vietp��a��v;:Tbhyj-^ ?s*M  justification: f6rthe wolf killing  , th�� no^h -the wplvfe are^coL...  blooded killers'-- is pure Orwell^  It is newspeak and doublethink^:  Brummet's purpose is to provide more animals for men to  kill for sport or trophies and has  more to do with his re-election  than it has with care of thesen-  vironment.     ^; .";���������;.:��� :.������/���;��� .���.-.' -v  And while we condone? the  slaughter from helicopters of  wolves so that rich tourists can  better slaughter moose and elk,  might we screw our courage to  sticking place enough to pose  the question: How long are we  going to allow those who kill for  pleasure to regard their activities  as  'normal'? The art  of the  hunter is about as relevant in  the rnbdern world as the appendix in the workings of the body.  Why should those with obsolete  hungers be catered to? Those  whose only. interest in things  natural is the slaughter thereof  need to be re-educated. Man's  capacity for destruction is too  great to be left unbridled. That  is true of the great.war machines  and the individual thrill killers.  There must be other'tests of  manhood.  'Speaking of great war  machines, (and who can avoid it  who would look forward?)  every year given to us now must  be a year' in which we clamour  for an end to the insanity of  nuclear weaponry. The situation we are now in is suicidal. A  holocaust which will wipe all  forms of life off the earth is  now regarded as inevitable  unless we reverse direction. It  need take no international crisis  to spark it: In 1979, thie failure  of an inexpensive computer part  led thei world to the brink of extinction by leading ah American  defence installation to the belief  that the Russians were attacking. There was enough time for  M i^th^ Wrpr^P^dis^yered.

'  The fact is that we haven't  got the time to press for a  nuclearMfreeze^MWe must be  demanding disarmament and  demanding it with all the passion of those who would live  and have their children live. Life  itself is at stake. Nothing need  now be done to destroy it totally. The systems of destruction  now in place will eventually  destroy the planet, that is sure.  A book that I have come  across which not only makes  clear the danger but manages to  impart that rarest of miracles  now, hope, is entitled The Hundredth Monkey and is available  from Vision Books, 790 Commercial Avenue, Coos Bay,  Oregon 97420. On the flyleaf  the author writes: "This book is  dedicated to the dinosaurs, who  mutely warn us. that a species  which cannot adapt to changing  conditions will become  extinct."  Here by way of introduction  is the story of the hundredth  monkey. It comes to us, appropriately from Japan whence  also came the dawn of the  nuclear age almost 40 years ago.  "The Japanese monkey,  Macaca fuscata, has been  observed in the wild for a period  of over 30 years. In 1952, pn the  island of Koshima, scientists  were providing monkeys with  sweet potatoes dropped in the  sand. The monkeys liked the  taste of the raw sweet potatoes,  but they found the dirt unpleasant.;^  "An 18-month-old female  named Imo found she could  solve the problem by washing  the potatoes: in a nearby stream.  She, taught this .trick to .her-,:-  mother. Her playmates also  learned this new way and they  taught their mothers too.  "This cultural innovation  was gradually picked up by  various monkeys before the eyes  of the scientists. Between 1952  and 1958 all the young monkeys  learned to wash the sweet  potatoes to make them more  palatable. Only the adults who  imitated their children learned  this social improvement. Other  adults kept eating the dirty  sweet potatoes.  "Then something startling  took place. In the autumn of  1958 a certain number of  Koshiba monkeys were washing  sweet potatoes - the exact  number is not known. Let us,  suppose that when the sun rose  one morning there were 99  monkeys on Koshima island  who had learned to wash their  sweet potatoes. Let us further  suppose that later that morning  the hundredth monkey learned  to wash potatoes.  "THEN   IT   HAPPENED!  By that evening almost everyone  in the tribe was washing sweet  potatoes before eating them.  The added energy pf this him-,  dredth monkey somehow  created an ideological  breakthrough! But notice. The  mpst surprising thing observed,  by these scientists was that the  habit of washing sweet potatoes  then spontaneously jumped  over the sea - colonies of  monkeys on other islands and  the mainland troop of monkeys  at Takasakiyama ^began  washing their sweet potaotes.    <  "Thus when a certain critical  number achieves an awareness,  this new awareness may be communicated from mind to mind.  Although the exact number is  indeterminate, the? Hundredth  Nfpnkey Phenomenon means  that when 'only a limited  number of people know of a  new way, it may remain the  consciousness property of these  people. But there is a point at  which i f only one more person  times in to a ne\y awareness, a  field is strengthened so that this  awareness reaches almost  everyone... Your awareness is  needed in saving the world from;  nuclear war. You may be thit  hundredth monkey.v   -.'���:  If you think such hope seems *|  flimsy you may be absolutely '������  right. But it may be the only '���  hope left. It may be less flimsy ������',  than life itself on the brink of '.  the nuclear cliff.  No other issue today is of any ���  consequential importance. A? i  we address ourselves to a hewMJ  year it must be with the detedMt  mination to effectively expres!;;:  our opposition to the insanity of ���"  nuclear weapons and to con-;';  tinue to do so while life remains !���������  to us. I wish for all the birth of ;  awareness and health to effee- "'!  tively oppose. ������   ;  Maryanne's    viewpoint  The meaning of community  by Maryanne West  I've written before about the  group of pacifists who live at  "Ground Zero" the centre for,  Non-Violent Action just outside  of the Trident submarine base  at Bangor, Washington. Their  most recent newsletter is  devoted to the subject bf community and I'mM passing on  some of the thoughts of Shelly  Douglass on this subject, feeling  them to be particularly appropriate as we think seriously  about our lives at the beginning  of a new year.  "Like most people involved  in social change, we at Ground  Zero spend a lot of time talking  about community, Who is our  community? How do we  become community? What does  it mean to be community?  'Community...to be in communion, to hold some thing in  common, to commune.' We  work very hard to foster community, to define it and care for  it in a responsible way. Its importance to us goes beyond con  ventional working relationships  or a comfortable circle of  friends, it signifies something  deeper. What does community  mean to us at the deepest level?  Not that this group of people  live together, or work or eat or  pray together, not even that this  group of people has forged a  bond and will be faithful to  each other through hard and  easy times. All these things may  be true, but they are true as part  of an underlying reality.  "Community is a fact of life.  We live and think communally  because we are already part of  the deep and profound community of creation. The reality  that underlies our existence is a  communal one, this earth is a  community of beings, a harmonious unity which lives and  grows and suffers and dies during every moment of every day,  each single being affecting each  other one. Community is not  something .We build, it is  something we uncover. It is a  ; fact of life. We are.one.  "Our oneness is flawed, has  been flawed for centuries. That  is why any conscious attempt at  sustained community is so difficult, and why we have to  define and study and nurture  our communities so carefully.  We have fallen Ofit of community and our lack of  awarensss of pur union with  others endangers us all, every  species, every race, all of us  together. The unity did not  cease when we ceased to be  aware of it, each time we violate  it we hurt ourselves and the  fabric of life.  "What does it mean to have  fallen out of community? Just  that, to hurt ourselves and the  fabric of life. It means to see  ourselves separate from the rest  of the world and in opposition  to it. It means to compete, to  win, to dominate. It means to  build and invent and create and  produce without weighing the  effects on the rest of creation. It  means to look out for number  one, to keep up with the  Joneses, to pull ourselves up by  our   boot-straps   and   expect  others to do the same. It means  to get all we can, and defend  ourselves with any weapons at  hand. It means starvation,  pollution, war. It means spouse  abuse, child abuse, drug and  alcohol abuse. It means  hopelessness, despair, greed,  hatred and futility. It means  loneliness. It means irresponsibility...The strength of community is our hope. We have  not yet faced any danger like the  physical dangers faced by our  friends in Latin America. We  do face daily the danger of giving up, losing hope, ceasing to  struggle. How easy it would be  to blind ourselves to suffering,  to.create a corner of comfort or  escape through family or work,  through drugs or alcohol.  "Community is the invisible  truth of our oneness becoming  visible in our lives. We all share  life together. We just ignore the  fact, and our ignoring it  prevents our full sharing."  The newsletter is available  from Ground Zero, 16159 Clear  Creek Road, NW, Poulsbo,  Washington 98370.  \ Coast News, December 31,1984  ,~   A  Editor:  I am writing to applaud  Dianne Evans' editorial comment "Peace on Earth" in  which she deplores the Pentagon campaign for war industry contracts in our country.  No one could express the situation more eloquently from a  moral and humane point of  view. I wish only to add a  postscript based on hindsight. It  is necessary today to call up  previous experience of war industry as a means of keeping  people in jobs.  The thorny problem, of  unemployment in periods of  economic stagnation has  plagued society since the rise of  the capitalist system. In the  Great Depression of the thirties  the German Republic had six  million people out of work and  hungry. They elected Adolf  Hilter as Chancellor upon the  promise he would turn the  economy around and liquidate  the enormous national debt. In  due time (1936 I believe) they reelected him by an overwhelming  popular vote. Meanwhile he had  set the idle factories in motion  for war and found work of one  kind or another for all the  ablebodied.  Many employees were needed  to man the munitions factories,  chemical works and, of course,  services for the institutions  housing the inevitable  unemployables. There was work  with I.G. Farben providing  cyanide gas for the extermina-  t ion of these social misfits who  were trade union leaders,  political opponents, scapegoat  races, and other human so-  called vermin.

The commandant of Belsen  Camp (later known as the Beast  of Belsen) was an inspired  recycler of useful merchandise  from refuse. He discovered that  unblemished human skin made  up into excellent parchment for  the construction of lampshades.  The Beast's wife owned an enviable collection of lampshades  fashioned of the choicest tattooed skin. Yes, there is  employment and profit in production for war.  Everybody knows how  Hiker's Third Reich, based on  war, ended. Hitler himself, his  wife and little children died by  suicide.  Is it preposterous to suspect  that a grisly parallel of Nazi  Germany exists in North  America? Perhaps. We have  always been confident for some  smug reason that such grotesque extremes of government can  never find root in our national  soul. But the sad truth is that  human beings will do any job,  no matter how loathsome, to  keep alive, and we here are no  different from the people of<_.  Germany.

Mr. Jim Gurney, Chairman  Regional Board  Dear Mr. Gurney:  The Sunshine Coast SPCA is  pleased that the board is approaching Victoria for information to establish an animal control policy. It is interesting to  Pro-life  Editor:  Please, please doctors listen  to your oath!  The Hippocratic Oath- I  swear by Apoolo Physician, by  Aesculapius, by Health, by  Panacea, and by all the gods  and goddesses, making them  my witness, that I will carry out,  according to my ability and  judgement, this oath and this  indenture. To hold my teacher  in this Art equal to my own  parents; 1 will share my  substance with him, and I will  supply his necessities, if he be in  need. I will regard.his offspring  even as my own brethren, and I  will teach them this Art, if they  would learn it, without fee or  covenant, by lecture and by  every mode of teaching, not only my own sons but to the sons  of him who has taught me, and  to disciples bound by covenant  and oath, according to the Law  of Medicine.  The regimen I adopt shall be  for the benefit of my patients,  according to my ability and  judgement, and not for their  hurt or for any wrong. 1 will  give no deadly drug to any,  though it be asked of me, nor  will I counsel such, and  especially I will not aid a  woman to procure abortion.  Whatsoever house I enter, there  will I go for the benefit of the  sick, refraining from any act of  seduction of male or female, of  bond or free. Whatsoever things  I see or hear concerning the life  of men, in my attendance on the  sick or even apart therefrom,  which ought not to be noised  abroad, I will keep silence  thereon, counting such things to  be as sacred secrets.  Now if I carry out this Oath  and break it not, may I gain forever reputation among all men  for my life and for my Art, but  if I transgress it and forswear  myself, may the opposite befall  me.

Gibsons 886 7359  <3>  note that in the recent referendum, a majority of the voters  favoured an animal control effort without the SPCA lobbying  for this cause (with the exception of Cable channel 10).  As you are probably aware,  there are many volunteers  presently performing animal  control services throughout the  regional district. This includes  boarding animals in volunteers'  homes, manning a telephone  service, and in some cases  euthanizing and disposing of  unsuitable strays.  At one time, the former (and  now defunct) SPCA was being  considered for a $2,000 subsidy.  In consideration of the present  SPCA's efforts and the support  the public has shown for animal  control, we are requesting that  the board consider making a  suitable grant to the Sunshine  Coast SPCA to assist us.

This year 375 hampers were delivered, and the cash donations were the biggest yet, according to co-ordinator Bev Young  (not pictured). ��� Dianne Kvaiu pholo  Gwen    in     Gibsons  Co*ordihator  chosen for 1985  by Gwen Robertson, 886-3780  NEWQUEEN  CO-ORDINATOR  Pauline Haar has graciously  consented to be the new coordinator for the Sea Cavalcade  Queen's Pageant following the  resignation of Georgina  Cameron who has moved to  Vancouver and is unable to continue.  I Pauline brings a great deal of  professional experience and enthusiasm to the position and it is  . with a great deal of confidence  that we look forward to the  1985 Queen's Pageant.  To start things off, there will  be a Christmas bake sale on  Saturday, December 15 at the  Sunnycrest Mall. Former queen  contestants, chaperones,  parents and friends as well as  the new committee and their  friends are busy cooking up  Christmas goodies to help us get  by this busy Christmas season.  DRUG PRICES INCREASE?  It is quite possible that there  will be a substantial increase in  the price of prescription drugs  in Canada.  Before 1969, when consumer  groups lobbying caused an  amendment to the Patent Act,  Canadians had the dubious  privilege of paying more for  prescription drugs than any  other developed country in the  world - 1700 per cent more in  some instances. The amendment was designed to lower,  these prices by stimulating com-  petiton in the drug industry and  it has worked.  Vested interest groups have  caused a reopening of inquiries  by demanding that the amendment to the Patent Act be  repealed, and hearings began on  November 1 in Ottawa. For  more information, please call  Robert Kerton 886-6672.

COMMUNITY  CAROL SERVICE  The   hon-denominiitional  Roberts    Creek  New year fire  safety urged  by Jeanie Parker, 886-3973  FIRE SAFETY  The Roberts Creek Volunteer  Firemen responded to two calls  over Christmas, one the day  . before and the other on Boxing  Day. Neither resulted in major  damage but any fire can be  serious.  Chief Mulligan is planning a  fire awareness program for the  school in January in the hope  that the kids will educate their  parents. It's amazing how many  people don't even know what  number to phone. Some call  Gibsons or Sechelt fire departments instead of Roberts Creek.  It's a good idea to have the  number taped onto your phone  for both your family and  visitors and if you're not sure  what area you're in check  before you really need to know.  CAROLLING TRADITION  The Roberts Creek Volunteer  Fire Department's annual  Christmas carolling was a big  success December 17. About  100 kids and adults piled onto  the three trucks (though some  were inside keeping the drivers  company) for a nippy ride down  Beach   Avenue   and    West  Roberts Creek. Hot chocolate  and hot dogs were most  welcome afterward.  Another group of carollers  was out on Beach Avenue the  Sunday before Christmas. The  impromptu group, ranging in  age from two and one half  months to 70 years, apparently  originated on Henderson Road  and this was their second year  out. It's hoped this will become  an annual tradition as well.  CRIB THURSDAY  Cribbage night resumes this  Thursday at the Roberts Creek  Legion. Anybody is welcome to  try his or her luck with the  cards. Play starts at 8 p.m.  sharp.  NEW YEAR'S EVE  "Slim Pickins" will be play-,  ing at the Roberts Creek Legion  for New Year's Eve tonight. It's  a potluck and BYOB party so  don't come empty-handed.  Members and guests only, starting at 8 p.m.  "Used Guys" are at the  Peninsula Hotel and the  Creekhouse is planning its usual  big spread. Have a Happy New'  Year however you decide to  bring it in.  Egmont     News  Year-  by Ann Cook, 883-9167  NEW YEAR'S GREETINGS  Good-bye '84. Hello '85.  1984 has been good, 1985 is going to be better.  Need a little help to believe  that? Then try the power of  positive thinking, keep your  mind keen and _ your body  healthy. Having goals helps,  never mind the size of the goal  or how long it takes. The idea is  to have something to think  about and work at every day.  Remember the tennis court?  That took five years.

It was held at the Bethel  Baptist Church on Sunday,  December 23.  The Sunshine Choristers  under the direction of Jessie  Gairns, accompanied by a  talented Bunny Shupe on the  piano provided a very fine  choral offering. Duet by Alice  Horsman and Jean Bist was a  definite plus for the evening;  Readings were presented by  various people with the Baptist  minister, Reverend Neil Parker,  leading off with an opening  prayer.  Readings by Ken Easter-  brook, Frances Fleming, Mayor  Joyce Kolibas, Kathleen Le-  quime. Carol singing by  everybody accompanied by  Aletha Gilker, organist and  Bunny Shupe, pianist.  , The collection taken will go  to local Elves and the food  bank. A selection of Christmas  goodies was served after the service, giving all an opportunity  to visit.  CABLE EMERGENCY  MESSAGE  The ELT message on the  local cable station channel 10  explanation. An emergency  locator transmitter malfunctioned causing the machine to  go off.  The problem arose from not  knowing which plane's ELT  was sending off the signal at the  local airport and locating the  owner. This is transmitted on  the distress frequency so  naturally is cause for alarm.  The Emergency Program coordinator expresses thanks to  the Coast Cable Vision Company for its co-operation in carrying the message so prominently on their station.

The game, to be held in any  weather at Madeira Park, offers  at high noon, January 1, only a  few restrictions. Anyone is invited to play but must be "feeling no pain" in order to qualify.

She  graciously hosted a party for the  kids on Christmas Eve, was  calm with the upstairs toilet  flooding all down through the  house, only barely lost her cool  when a wee mouse got loose in  the house on Christmas morn.  But   by   the   time   that   the.  ALL SEASONS  y_t  i  )������  k.  K  >  HIGHLIGHTS OF CHANGES  RATES  An average increase  of 2%.  The effect of the annual adjustment of premiums to reflect the  actual claim costs of each rate  class and rate group, means an  increase of $25 or less for more  than one million vehicle owners,  and a reduction of up to $100 for  more than a half million. Another  16,000 vehicle owners will pay  increases ranging from $26 to  $50, and for a few the increases  will range up to $100 or more.  THIRD PARTY  LIABILITY  The compulsory minimum limit  for Third Party Legal Liability  insurance is increased to  $200,000. This change assures  more adequate compensation  for those with claims against  motorists who purchase only the  minimum coverage.  If legally liable, and if no extended limit has been purchased, the insured would be  responsible for payment of any  claims in excess of $200,000.  Maximum coverage for bodily  injury, or death resulting from an  accident caused by an uninsured or unidentified motorist  has also been increased to  $200,000.  "NO FAULT"  ACCIDENT  BENEFITS  Payments for total disability of  employed persons are increased by 15% to $115 weekly.  o  1985  AUTOPLAN  MOTORIST  KIT  AVAILABLE  FROM  AUTOPLAN  AGENTS  OWN DAMAGE FOR  "X" PLATES  With some exceptions, the owners of vehicles licenced with an  "X" plate may now purchase  Own Damage coverage with  their Owner's Certificate. Liability  coverage provided under the  plate policy will now extend while  the vehicle is being driven on  private property. However, owners are still required to purchase  a separate liability policy to cover  the vehicle while it is in use at the  site of any operation.  o  "REPLICAR",  "UBILT", ETC.  0  SPECIAL  EQUIPMENT  Canopies, campers and two-  way radios require a Special  Equipment Endorsement in ali  cases, even when they are  supplied by the manufacturer.  o  TERRITORY "Z"  RATING  Premiums for such vehicles as  Replicars, Ubilts, etc., previously  determined by rate group, are  now determined according to the  declared valutas stated by the  owner at the time of purchase of  insurance.  vehicles expected to be operated outside of the province for  the majority of miles travelled  during the term of the policy  (example ���: motorhomes) must  be rated under Territory Z, which  is equivalent to Territory A premiums.  0  MOTORCYCLES  Motorcycles in excess of 750cc,  which were formerly restricted to  All Perils coverage, may now  purchase the full range of  optional coverages available to  other motorcycles.

When is Joan's birthr  day and won't someone buy her  a little fire extinguisher so she  doesn't have to throw the  Christmas punch bowl in the  flames.  Also, does everyone have the  fire, police and ambulance  numbers right on their phone?  The book is never there when  you need it if. you're like most  houses.  SMOKE ALARMS  GOOD IDEA  Now one last fire item. If you  don't have smoke alarms yet  start the year out right by getting them. The reason people  die in fires is because they never  wake up before invisible fumes  overcome them. So don't imagine that you're any different  or immune from this. 'Nuff  said.

Sechelt  Seniors  by Robert Foxall  We had our December monthly meeting on Thursday,  December 20 but there was so  much yuletide spirit apparent  that I do not intend to bore you  with too much detail. The main  business of the meeting was the  installation of the new officers  for 1985 so we will get down to  that particular item pronto.  The meeting opened with a  short talk from Dick Proctor of  "The Press" which could be  titled "The Trials and Tribulations of a Newsman". As a  result of the talk your reporter  was instructed to use an extra  carbon and supply them with a  copy of the hews that has been  so admirably published by the  Coast News for some time now.  It was an afternoon for  "thanks" for all the good things  which had been done in the past  year but I'm not going to try to  compile such a list. It would  mean listing the entire roster of  Branch 69. Seniors are good at  "doing their bit" when called  upon. Everything we did during  the year seemed to succeed and  bring a buck or two into our  coffers to put us a smidgen  closer to our objective of  building a new hall that could  meet many of the needs recrea-  tionally of our ever growing  senior community. The thanks  goes to our musicians for helping so much with our singing  and singers.  By the way, it was announced  that tickets for our New Year's  Eve party were sold out. Guess  I'll watch the moon rise on my  , own that night, I was one of the  slow ones.  The incoming officers were  called to the podium by Jan  DeBruyn who was the Installing  Officer. Incoming president was  led to the podium by retiring  president Len Herder and duly  sworn in by Mr. DeBruyn and  then in succession followed:  Gerry Chailleur, first vice-  president; Herb Richter, second  vice-president; Betty DeBruyn,  secretary; John Johnson,  treasurer; Ted Wicklund, Mike  Timms and Bud Busby, directors.  Thanks to the generosity of  the Shop-Easy we were able to  distribute a few more vouchers  than usual. These went as  follows: Absent: Jim Murphy,  Bert Nordstrom, Eric Custance,  Emery Scott, Eric Rullish, Olive  Provencal and present: Jan  DeBruyn, Len Herder ^ M.  Richter and A.N. Other.

Each member brought  along a small item for sale after  the workshop and an auction  was held raising about $60  towards the funds; a pretty  good effort considering there  were only about 16 present.  Meetings are generally held on  the second Wednesday of each  month but for January the date  will be the 19. Speaker for this  evening will be writer Judy Gill  who will be giving some  pointers on the writing of  .romance novels.

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

Minister-/   i  by Frank Fuller-  Today, when the International Woodworkers x of  "America (IWA) is mentionedM  Jack Munro seems to come to  mind for many people;  However, for me there are other  woodworkers that stir in my-  memory from the days in the  1960's when I conducted shop  steward and union training  classes for the IWA all across  Canada and the US.  It was from the woodworkers  I met in that period that I heard  of the woodworker's dream,  "one union in wood", that  would embrace a million North  American workers in the forest  product industry. The story  behind that dream has often intrigued and tempted labour  historians but had remained unwritten.  Ralph Chaplin, author of the  famous labour song "Solidarity" said of the IWA; "When  the story of the IWA is in one  volume cbmplete, you are going  to read one of the most amazing  stories every put on paper."  m  Well, that amazing story has  been put down on paper in One  Union in Wood, the Political  History of the International  Woodworkers of America.  Written by two young  American historians, Jerry .  Lembcke,   a   professor   at   a.  Students  in concert  A keen group of earnest,  hardworking piano students  from Sechelt, Gibsons and adjacent areas entertained ah appreciative audience Sunday  afternoon, December 9 in Gibsons.  Behind each performance lay  the interest and encouragement ,  of family, as well as long hours  of practice by the students, who  had first to master their pieces  and then memorize them.  Every number on the program was enjoyable. All  students gave their best.  The ice was broken with a  ���r carofc played by ;fiye-yearv(^M  Jennifer Krasnikoff.

Wisconsin university, and  William Tattam, a high school  ��� teacher in Portland, Oregon,  has been published by the Sunshine Coast's Harbour  Publishing Company and is  available in local book stores.  The story is international in  * scope and covers events in the  union's history in both Canada  and the US.  The authors write that for  over 40 years the loggers and  lumberjacks, the boommen and  rafters and the sawmill and  plywood worker "attempted to  build a democratic industrial  union in North America under  the slogan of 'One Union in  Wood"'. However, their  aspirations were frustrated by  powerful economic and political  forces that fragmentized their  efforts to unionize.  Lembcke and Tattam have  written a truly remarkable book  in support of this thesis. Their  anaylsis of events will be  challenging for many, controversial for some. Nonetheless their efforts are anchored in  sound research and sup-:  plemented by in depth interviews with some 40 individuals  who played a role in shaping the  history of the union.  Those interviewed include  Harold Prichett, the B.C.  shingle weaver, who became the  first international president of  the IWA and Ron Roley, the  Oregon sawmill worker, who  was the union's president in the  1970's. Also interviewed was  Joey Smallwood, the Newfoundland premier, who broke  and outlawed the IWA in that  province in the 1950's.  The   late   Harold   Prichett,  who played a  major role in  building the IWA wrote in an  introduction to the book before  he died: "One Union in Wood  is the most accurate account of  the effort to build a democratic  industrial union in the North  American  wood  products  industry. ..

The toast was given in  Gaelic by Cadet Warrant Officer Tomasi and responded to  by CSM Yampolsky of the  Seaforths. The toast to the  cadet corps was given by Cadet  Corporal Foxall.  "There has been favourable  response by both cadets and  guests to our very first dinner,"  said Captain Biggs who initiated  the idea, "and it's certain to be  an annual affair from now on."

Trustees  fight for  funds  Continued from page 1  Then if the deputy minister of  finance recommends a meeting  with Mr. Heinrich it will be arranged for the trustees to go to  Victoria.  Further discussion centred on  the importance of letters from  the community so that trie  government knows the position  taken by the school board has  wide community support.  Superintendent Denley suggested letters should stress the  rights of elected trustees to  manage the school system and  to have access to adequate  funds to run the system to meet  parents' requirements.  It was agreed to write directly  to Premier Bennett rather than  the education minister to give  our concerns a wider audience.  Trustees also agreed to seek  meetings with MLAs Don  Lockstead and John Reynolds,  at the earliest opportunity.  A letter was authorized congratulating the students at  Madeira Park elementary  school on receiving a $500  award for the second year for  their Traffic Safety educational  program.  fi  Vi  A fitness  class for  every BODY  Winter Session - January 7 -April 7  Mon.

At the  December 13 SCRD board  meeting it was raised by Director Burnside. After summarizing the above mentioned events,'  Director Burnside said -  "One of the primary aims of  the proposed new policy was to:  bring agreement and peace to!  our troubled area, to prevent;  the Sunshine Coast from giving  the appearance of being peopled;  by quarrelling fools.;  Nonetheless, that's what we  have managed to do again. '<  "I can't see the point of;  discussing this or anything else  with the SCRD," he continued.!  "I'm not sure what discussions'  could mean anything if any  agreement reached can be un-,  done by any single member of,  the Board.  "It smacks of deceit," said,  Director Burnside, pointing out,  that the petition sent by Gurney;  with his letter has been cir-j  culated in the early summer  against the extensive changes  recommended in the  Johnstone/Buchan report, not',  the much modified compromise!  Gibsons thought it had worked!  out. !  "Nor is this the first time that;  there appears to have been;  misdirection. 1 have been in-;  formed that early in the sum-;  mer, Director Gurney actively'  prevented the Johnstone/;  Buchan report from being placed on the planning agenda; then-  there was the attempt to pass!  off the recommendations of one!  report (the Jawanda) as belong-!  ing to another (the!  Johnstone/Buchan). Now we:  have misdirection in the matter  of this petition." ./   -     '  Chairman Jim Gurney  answered by reading to the;  Board the letter which had accompanied the'petition, which  was indeed a copy of the June  petition. "A director must be  able to represent his constituents," said Director Gurney.  "That's what they elect me to  do. These allegations are quite  erroneous,'  In the  * Director Gurney (for that is,W<  title under which the letter w��|  written) lays out the objections  held by Area E to inclusion into  the municipality of two lots  (dealt with as one application by  the; town) surrounding Kingo  Diesel, as well as concerns he  has about Lot 6, the Mit-;  teh/Childs property adjacent to;  the' .Gospel Rock property.;  TheW"Jure concerns which have;  been recognised and discussed;  at much . length in many-  previous meetings.  Director Gurney's letter went';  on to mention the enclosed peti-!  tion, "recently received by the!  Regional District", which is!  described as being "in response!  to a suggestion in a recent joint!  study on boundary extensions!  prepared by the town and the-  Regional District planners.1 The!  study suggested that the tovwi;  might expand to take in the;  areas covered by this petition." ;  The original petition was for-;  warded to the Ministry of'  Municipal Affairs in June,!  (after the presentation of the!  Johnstone/Buchan report), ac-!  cording to Director Gurney in a!  conversation with the Coast;  News' and its inclusion in the;  Area E Director's letter of;  November 23 has raised ques-;  tions from town council;  members and others involved,;  since the present situation is;  much different from that which ���  the petition addressed.  Director Jon McRae said, ;  after some further discussions, ;  "I have heard of the letter; in ;  light of the fact that yours  (Director Gurney's) was the on- !  ly one that went out, sending a ;  copy of the letter to Gibsons ���  would have been in keeping !.  with the co-operation wefye !  been trying to find."  He went on to make a motion !  to forward to the Ministry of ;  Municipal Affairs the minutes ;���  of the meeting wherein the town ;  of Gibsons was supported by a ;  motion from the board, accompanied by a short letter of explanation. Tin's waVagreed to  but it will be done so by the  Secretary-treasurer, Larry Jardine, since Director Gurney felt  .it would appear as a conflict of  interest if it were signed by  himself as chairman. A copy  will be sent to Gibsons, and'  there it will rest until 1986, when  any further revisions may be  undertaken following guidelines  which will avoid the confrontations of 1984. 16.

OPENING  SOON  CENTER,  For inquiries, call  885-4611  students  Secondary students on the  Coast will be given an opportunity to assist the Tourist  Association in promotion of the  newly proclaimed salmon shark  through a logo and nickname  competition  Art McGinnis, treasurer of  the   association,   announced  . details of the student competition this week.  ., "Secondary students are invited to submit a black atid  white design of a salmon shark  caricature or logo for poster  promotion m of the Siinshihe  Coast," McGinnis outlined.  "We' are also asking* the  students to provide an appropriate nickname for our  mascot salmon shark which will  be promoted at the Vancouver  International Boat Show in  February."  The Tourism Association has  reserved four booths at the  show in B.C. Place in a continued effort to publicize the  Coast's potential as a tourist  destination.  McGinnis said the decision to  involve the secondary students  was because the promotion of  tourism would directly benefit  them in the upgrading of the  economy and subsequent creation of more jobs.  The competition closes  January 10 and the winner wilk  be announced before the boat  shoW. The best six entrants will  be given a tour of a fish farm on  Nelsflh.
