 LEGISLATIVE CiBRARY  Parnament Buildings  VICTORIA, B.C.  V8V1X4  85A,  Creek unprotected  Fire truck  recovered  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District has received a letter  from the Roberts Creek  Volunteer Fire Department, in  which they are advised that the  department can no longer offer  effective fire protection until  such time as the 1500 gallon  tanker, stolen on the morning  of October 7, can be replaced.  The tanker truck was found  in a gravel pit at Pender Harbour on Monday; this means  that the Roberts Creek area was  without adequate protection  from the time of theft.  The Gibsons Volunteer Fire  Department has been in contact  with chairman Jim Gurney, and  has offered to lend the RCVFD  their small pumper truck. This  offers some small measure of  protection to residents.  Information received by the  Coast News reports that the  truck was seen weaving up  Mason Road between three and  four on Sunday morning, with  the siren emitting beeping  noises. Unfortunately the theft  had not yet been reported and  this lead was not followed.  The damages sustained during the theft are mechanical,  leading to some insurance difficulties. However, the RCVFD  does keep excellent maintenance  records, as assistant secretary-  treasurer Mike Phelan pointed  out, and this may help with the  claims. The board will be seeking up-to-date information on  the investigation from the  RCMP.  Vandals made off with the Roberts Creek Volunteer Fire Depart-  . ment's tanker truck early last Sunday morning after smashing windows to gain entry to the firehall. The tanker was located by  B.C.'s most valuable resource  helicopter Thanksgiving Monday afternoon near a Pender Harbour  gravel pit, having sustained enough mechanical damage to put it  out of operation. RCMP investigation continues.        -janeMcouaiphoio  Herbicide spray  in Egmont area  Forest waste charged  by John Burnside  Mackenzie    MLA    Don  . -Lockstead is at the centre of a  ; growing   controversy   over  -timber utilization in his sprawling coastal constituency. Under  the   date   of   September   27,  Lockstead   wrote   to   forestry  minister Tom Waterland about.  ;M the Jvaste offelled timber in  Kimsquit Valley at the head of  Dean Channel approximately 50  kilometres northeast of Bella  Coola.  The letter details concerns  about an estimated eight millon  board feet of timber some of  which is alleged to have been on  the ground for as much as six  years and is reported to be rotting and wasted.  "To make matters worse,"  says Lockstead, "the company  (Doman's) is now highgrading  timber for export on other cutting blocks in the valley and  hauling these new logs through  the wood left on the ground."  The MLA noted the irony of  the public resource being wasted  while small logging operators in  the Bella Coola area and  elsewhere are being 'squeezed  with fewer cutting permits each  year'.  Lockstead has demanded an  ' independent commission of inquiry, suggesting that similar  waste and mismanagement is  occurring elsewhere in the constituency of Mackenzie.  A local man who shares  Lockstead's concerns is David  Scott, a boomman at Andy's  Bay through which sorting  grounds go the bulk of the logs  cut on the west coast. Scott is  also a board member of IWA  Local 1-71 representing workers  in the woods industries from  Port Atkinson to Alaska including the north half of Vancouver Island.  "If you are a logger or a  boomman," says Scott,  "business is still fairly good. It's  what happens after the logs are  down that is the problem,  though if you leave logs rotting  in the bush a lot of logging jobs  , are lost too."  ;.   In an  interview last week  MScott pointed out that the bulk  of logs sorted at the booming  ground where he works used to  go to Fraser Valley sawmills.  "In thejlast few years," says  Scott, "there has been a tremendous increase in log exports. We  are shutting down sawmills in  B.C. and exporting whole logs  to Japan and increasihgiy to  China. What it means is that we  are laying off secondary  workers here and exporting jobs  to Asia."  A statistical table compiled  by the Council of Forest Industries indicates that there has  been since 1974 approximately a  300 per cent increase in the ex  port of raw logs from British  Columbia, the majority going  to Japan and China though  many are also exported to U.S.  sawmills.  "The people of B.C. have to  be aware," says Scott, "that the  export of raw logs is contributing to the destruction of  the social fabric of the province.  Thecuts*ih^UcsitidnT in the  health service, in social services  are in part caused by the export  of our best logs and the waste of  others. We are laying off most  of our secondary industry.  Where do the taxes come from  for our social services if no. one  is working? The fact of the matter is that the largest wealth-  producing industry in this pro-  vince is being rapidly  destroyed."  Scott pointed to reports that  ventory they'll be able to set the  prices we can charge in the  future."  Scott charged that what are  being exported are the best logs  left in the province. "They're  taking out the beautiful stuff  and leaving the rest to rot,  meanwhile   woods   employees  ���'���the-. Japanese in particular -are;-.^^��re.Qn UIC and y/elfare an  now stockpiling the raw logs "'   ihg; their houses." ~~<~-- ..>  which they are buying. "They \ Scott also challenged the  are said to be storing them in validity of the provincial  peat moss and fresh water government's claim that stump-  ponds. With that growing in-       age , charge   are  being   levied  whether felled timber is harvested or not.  "It's not enough even if they  are collecting stumpage  charges," said Scott. "The  resource is being wasted or exported raw and the future well-  being of this province is being  jeopardised. If we can't saw  them up here let's leave them  where.they are. We are filling  the pockets of the timber companies without any of the  wealth from a public resource  going to the people of the province,"  The recent appeal by Egmont  residents Iris and Billy Griffith  against aerial spraying of 2,4-D  herbicide in the Earl Creek area  by the ministry of forests has  been turned down by the  Pesticide Appeal Board. The  spraying has now, been completed.  Mrs. Griffith told the Coast  News that the summary reason  for refusing the appeal, as cited  in a letter from the appeal  board, was that "the implementation of the (spraying) program  will not cause an unreasonable  adverse effect to mankind  and/or the environment".  .^ P^ticulalreasons,cited, were  streams in the area were little  more than draingage ditches; no.  fish were in the streams; any  2,4-D reaching salt water would  be in negligible amounts; bees  kept nearby were not threatened  as birds and animals tend to  avoid sprayed areas; no one  lives closeby.  Sechelt forest district  manager Barrie Custance  recently confirmed that herbicide spraying by backpack  and power mister has also been  completed on forestry lands in  areas near Piper Point, Hillside,  Hudson Creek and Killam Bay.  A second appeal, against  aerial spraying in the Brittain  River drainage area, has been  launched by the Sunshine Coast  Environment Protection Project, and several interesting  points have come to light  because of it.  As it currently stands, public  notice of an application to apply herbicides is given after the  application has been approved  and a permit issued. The public  has approximately 14 days in  which to file an appeal  The permit has already been  issued, however, and according  to Barrie Custance, "The head  of the appeal board can but  doesn't necessarily put a freeze  on spraying when an appeal is  launched."  , Custance indicated it was one  of those* gray areas iri which  forestry is never sure if it can go  ahead and spray or not, but "I  have the impression we could".  With regards to the Brittain  River appeal, because the permit is for both aerial and  backpack spraying and the appeal is against only aerial spraying, the appeal board advised  forestry to hold off only the  aerial spraying and to proceed  applying herbicides by  backpack. However, because of  the lateness of the season, the  vegetation had already begun  turning and would not respond  as well to herbicide treatment,  so backpack spraying will also  be held off, probably until next  summer.  Clubhouse proposed  Father James R. Roberts will give a talk entitled "Ethical Reflections on Economic Crisis" in Gibsons elementary school gym on  Friday, October 19, at 7:30 p.m. Father Roberts' visit is sponsored  by the Solidarity Coalition of which he has been a member since  early in 1983. On Saturday morning Father Roberts will hold a  workshop on the Bishops' Report in Elphinstone lunchroom from  12:30 to 3:30 p.m.  Dog control question  to go before voters  A delegation from the Gibsons Rugby and Athletic Club  was the highlight of last  Wednesday's Planning Committee meeting at the Gibsons  council chambers. Representing  the club, and well-prepared with  plans and information on the  proposed clubhouse at Brothers  Park, were Geoff Powers, John  Sutherland and Leif Mjanes.  Because this park is a multi-  use facility there are plenty of  problems to be ironed out, and  before the delegation proceeded  with their major presentation it  was agreed that members of all  participating sports should be  invited to a meeting where ideas  could be aired and a plan devised which would suit everybody.  Said planner Rob Buchan,  "We have to come up with the  best marraige we can of all these  requirements. To make plans  pre-supposing their ideas and  needs...could lead to the alienation and polarization of all the  groups."  The delegation then went on  to show the proposed clubhouse  plans, including washrooms,  change rooms, caretaker suite  and clubrooms. The club,  presently using facilities at Armours Beach, sees their major,  and welcome, obligation to the  community as one of providing  washrooms and changerooms  as soon as possible. To this end  their clubhouse plans include  such facilities on the ground  floor, easily built before the addition upstairs, of clubrooms,  Please turn to page 13  At last Thursday's Sunshine  Coast Regional Board meeting a  report was made to the board  by the Dog Control Committee  chairman, director Jon McRae,  assisted by director John Burnside.  Although there are several  points to be considered were the  board to take on the function of  animal control, the first concern, said director McRae, is  "do the people want this dog  control?".  To -this end, it was suggested  that a question be included on  the ballot in the fall elections to  be held in areas B, D and F.  This would be a non-binding  referendum, but would give the  board a good idea of local support.  The question would read  along the lines, "Would you  favour the SCRD acquiring the  function of animal control and  be prepared to pay for this function?" As for costs, director  McRae gave figures of $7 per  household and $4 per vacant  lot, annually.  Even if the support came  mainly from one area, such as  area D, where the problem appears to be most severe, it  would certainly be possible that  a piece-meal application of the  function could be applied. This  would be with the co-operation  of the present Gibsons shelter,  and the SCSPCA, to whom this  information has also been forwarded:  mJM|UKi^JUmtaKmtSrhMmMatamJ, I     uliFAl") Tr^������"~ -���-:-"        i Biinti 11��� b�� m ���������������^������������������rn'iiiMwwwaa'WBmBii'm^^ -m*.rti*il'*��rmig*rexwr; r������*-*���*���*** -i ^���'���^ti^m  Recent storms accompanied by high winds uprooted this tree in Lee Bay and caused numerous instances  of damage to floats in the Pender Harbour area. Power was off for some time in several areas of the Sunshine Coast.  ���Jnne McOuat pholo Coast News, October 15,1984  V  Settlement Plans  Anyone who has ever lamented or complained about the  length of time it has been taking to get area settlement  plans drawn up should have been at the Elphinstone Electors' Association meeting last week. You would understand why it's a long process.  Planner Judy Skogstad's verbal presentation of the  Area E technical background analysis and report (presently in draft form) complete with extensive slide presentation  showing the features of Area E which were studied, was  amazing to this lay person for the thoroughness and  breadth of the geological survey which has been undertaken. The fact that the only way to know what kind of  soils are in a region and where erosion or drainage problems occur is to walk the land and take notes and photos  should in itself explain the vast amounts of time involved.  And after that there is still the analysis to be done of what  has been found, its implications and effects. Numerous  maps have to be drawn showing where various conditions  are found, and of course the report written so.that those-of  us who are not planners will be able to understand what.\\  all means.  And this is just the background information. Only when  that is known can appropriate land uses and zonings be  considered and recommended. The wishes of the residents  in defining the atmosphere desired in the area must also be  considered. And then the Area E settlement plan can be  drawn up, to be used as a guide for future development.  This mammoth amount of work is also being undertaken in Areas B and F, with a report on the latter due  next.  It is inconceivable that any planner with a regular  workload would ever have the time to undertake such a  thorough investigation while still completing his regular  duties, and the fact that bits and pieces only of settlement  plan work were done before regional directors hired  specifically for the job is absolutely understandable. To  call this hiring frivolous and unnecessary is to be blinkered  to the magnitude of the task at hand, and directors are to  be congratulated for their foresight in doing what was  necessary to finally get the job done.  To anyone frustrated by the length of time he has been  waiting for his area's settlement plan, or skeptical over the  extra funds allocated for the task���hold on just a bit  longer. We bet you won't be disappointed.  Fran Burnside  5 YEARS AGO  Local writer Hubert Evans, almost 90-years of age, has  just had his tenth novel released.

In cities and in  compact mining and mill towns, such assemblies were easily managed. In small outlying settlements, however, these get-togethers  sometimes necessitated long walks through trails and along rustic  roads for some of the visitors. In any case, the distance was covered,  and the home of the hostess reached..Conversation during the visit  revolved about neighborhood and family happenings, conditions  and tribulations. While much information that made the rounds undoubtedly constituted folk lore, time was always allotted for matters  of practical consideration. Household hints of mutual benefit appeared at appropriate spots in the conversation. In many com-'  munities, knitting and darning needles clicked and flashed, so that  time needed for these essential chores was not lost. At some appropriate moment that suited local custom, coffee would be served  from beans that were ground then and there in a handturned "mill".*  The brew would both remind the visitors of departure time and give  them energy for the long walk home. Hyacinth Bay, 1915. Yeatman  family photo. L. R. Peterson.  Maryanne's viewpoint  Who says it can't be done?  by Maryanne West  On the day of Pope Paul's  visit to Vancouver a couple of  Gibsons teachers decided on the  spur of the moment that,  although not Catholics they'd  like to see the Pontiff. Despite  warnings of the odds against  success at such a late date, with  no plans and no tickets they set  off after school on their adventure.  On the ferry they met friends  who reminded them that the  West Vancouver bus wouldn't  be able to take them into the city centre, that they'd probably  have to walk from Stanley  Park, but offered th.1 possibility  that friends who were meeting\  t hem might be able to help.     M  This proved to be the case,,  and they got a ride to the SeaT(  Bus terminal crossed the hap-f  bour and walked up the huT  towards the stadium. On  Georgia Street they were assessing their prospects, so far so  good - but what do we do now?  - and decided they would go to  B.C. Place and see what could  be done for anyone without  tickets.  . As they walked past the  Queen Elizabeth a total stranger  approached and gave them  tickets she couldn't use. They  couldn't believe their luck.  Hugging each other in excitement in they went.  As the program drew to a  close they began to wonder how  they would get home and  thought they might have to take  % >  a taxi to Horseshoe Bay, but  wending their way out of the  stadium with the crowds they  met some people from the  Coast contingent, who couldn't  have been more helpful and  quickly found room for them  on one of the buses.  A day or two earlier a young  couple from Woodstock Ontario on holiday in Victoria had  also said to each other, we are  so close we really should try to  see the Pontiff. There weren't  any tickets left but the people at  the church agreed to see if any  were available elsewhere in the  city.  The following day they  received a call that some tickets  had been found and they could  pick them at the Legislature.  They didn't give any speciaL  thought to this as,it seemed like  a central place and easy for  visitors to locate and they didn't  remember the name of the  gentleman who gave them the  tickets which included a parking  pass.  On arrival at B.C. Place they  were surprised to find their  parking spot was right beside  the entrance and they were  treated with great deference by  the staff and ushered into the  section obviously reserved for  VI Ps, surrounded by about 40  red-coated Mounties.  Somewhat embarrassed by  their casual dress they found  themselves seated with senators,  members of parliament and  other specially invited guests in-  cluding     Premier     Peter  Lougheed and realized belatedly  that they had fallen heir to  tickets allotted to a member of  the legislature.  Remember these stories the  next time you have a bright idea  and everyone tells you it can't  be done!  The next day our Woodstock  friends  were  in   Gibsons  and  bought   a   book   about   the  Beachcombers to take home to-,  their daughter. Encouraged by  Sheila Kitson they took it down -  to Molly's Reach and asked the  cast to autograph it. Returning ;  elated to the candy store their ���  comment was "This is just too"*  much.

Archibald MacLeish  The road to Pender Harbour  by James H. Tyner  The road to Pender Harbour  from Secret Cove is a disgrace  and the residents of Pender  Harbour and Powell River  should not put up with it.  The 1982/83 annual report of  the ministry of transportation,  communications and highways  indicates that there are 300 accidents in the Sechelt district  (which included Pender Harbour) with one person killed  and 91 injured. These statistics,  although stating the facts, do  not reveal the misery and  broken lives that result from  such accidents. The hospitals  and rehabilitation centres are  filled with accident victims trying to recover some form of active life.  There is little doubt that the  road to Pender Harbour is a  major cause pf accidents. Many  people drive it with fear and  uncertainty expecting  catastrophe at any time. This is  not surprising when one considers the condition of the road.  The original road to Pender  Harbour was built in the 1930's  by relief camp workers. As it  was expected that little use  would be made of this road, the  government provided very little  equipment or material for its  construction. As a consequence  the gravel road built was  dangerously narrow with many  blind corners and rock outcrop-  pings.  With ferries linking the  region to Vancouver and Powell  River the road could not accommodate the traffic. In summer  billowing dust obscured the vision while in winter the traffic  bogged down in mud.  The government had to act.  The road was paved but the  blind corners and rock outcrop-  pings remained. Later, in  stages, the highways ministry  widened and improved the road  to Secret Cove.  However, there remains that  section of narrow road from  Secret Cove to Pender Harbour  with its many dangerous curves  and blind corners. Corners with  rock outcroppings are particularly dangerous for large  trucks as it is difficult for them  to negotiate these turns while remaining on the right side of the  road.  Over the years of the use of  ���the road, the number of accidents causing death and permanent injury is not known but  the conditions causing such accidents remain and must be  eliminated.  It is understood that plans for  widening and improving the  road to Pender Harbour are  completed and ready for implementation. The residents of  Pender Harbour should insist  that this work be done without  further delay. Not only would  accidents be reduced with all  their tragic consequences but  distances would be shortened,  fuel saved and services improved.  Such improvements, of  course, will not reduce traffic  volume or noise.  For a satisfactory highway  system, not only should the present road be upgraded but traffic to Powell River should be  routed along a new road from  Sechelt following in the general  direction of the power line back  of Cecil Mountain and joining  the present road near Sakinaw  Lake.  Such a road would shorten  the distance from Powell River  to Vancouver as well as improve  conditions on the Pender Harbour road with reduced traffic  and noise. Besides minimizing  the possibility of accidents this;  road would open up new land;  for  development   and   attract  new   residents   bringing   with;  them the possibility of new and  improved services for the area. ���  It is believed that the ministry  of transportation, communications   and   highways   has:  prepared plans for such a road.  The residents of Powell River  and   Pender   Harbour  should ���  urge the government to imple- '���  ment such plans. They should '  not be put off by cries of lack of  money; for when we see the way  that    money   is   sometimes  squandered on frivolous things  there should be no question of  the availability of funds.  i  i  Last week's accident between this semi and van appeared to be  caused by a third vehicle obstructing traffic on a blind corner on the  Pender Harbour Road. _j,nf mcou* ph..m S����'*wi ��* '*   ��  Coast News, October 15,1984  rtwrnartif ��� -Js*"1** ��� '     n 'in     hi f^fi-JfthiTiilnmni  ose Iiii��ffiiiatl��it < gstnerlng  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following letter was received for  publication.  Mr. John Shaske,  Transportation Committee  Chairman  Dear Sir:  ; Shortly after 0830 hours on  the morning of Tuesday, the second of October, I was in the  company of my friend, John  IVtorgan, travelling from  Langdale to Horseshoe Bay  aboard the M.V. Queen of  Alberni.  I Motivated by a previous  discussion with other commuters we commenced to ask  passengers if they will be inconvenienced by the proposed  Change in the ferry sailing time  from 0830 hours to 0900 hours.  The response was very positive  and it was then decided that we  should draw up a list identifying  those who opposed the said  change, and showing the reason  for their opposition.  We were immediately approached by the chief steward  who told us that if we did not  stop and desist that he would  have to tell his captain.  Supported by other commuters we continued our impromptu survey but we were  once again arrested in our task  when, some 15 minutes later, we  were interrupted by a very  agitated and emotionally charged ship's captain who  floundered in his own verbosity  and kept making veiled threats  that we would be met on the  other side, (by whom we do not  know), if 'we characters' did  not stop our activities. After  calming the captain down and  admonishing him for referring  to us as 'you characters' we then  tried to advise him of the purpose of our actions and that we  were not contravening any en-  forcable laws or statutes.  Scouts celebrate  Editor:  Members of the 14th Canadian Baden-Powell Guild met  on September 27 in Salish  Lodge, Camp Byng.

Also present  was Jack Adair, field executive  froni   Scout   headquarters   in  Vancouver.  An investiture was held at  which time Vivienne and David  Blair were welcomed into the  membership of the guild.  Following the meeting, Fred  Rainer auctioned the interestingly wrapped parcels  which had been donated by the  members. Proceeds are to help  with the work of the guild.

I am also pleased to report  that the 'bogey-man' who was  supposed to meet us at the termination of our voyage never  materialized.  Kenneth M. King  Ferry objection  Editor:  In response to a report in this  local newspaper under Letter to  the Editor, I will criticize the  transportation committee on  their position of reaching an  understanding with the B.C.  Ferry Corporation, regarding  scheduling.  I find it difficult to accept  that a schedule that was totally  inadequate one or two years ago  can be acceptable today. To say  that for the first time in three  years there will be no reduction  in sailings is hardly a positive  approach and does not make a  bad service better.  So far as the Transportation  Committee making deals at  hotels in Vancouver at $37 per  night (subject to availability) for  local residents is concerned, that  too is a negative approach  because it certainly won't do a  thing to improve our ferry  schedule or help to broaden our  Flood aid  needed  Editor:  The recent flood in Pemberton has not only left families  homeless but a lot of the  farmers have lost their crops  and livestock. Although the  government: has stated these  families will receive compensation, for most it will be a long  time in coming.  I was in Pemberton the  weekend of the flood and  although the home I was in was  safe, the feeling of being trapped, of total helplessness was -  with us. We could not even get  out to help the people who  stayed up all night to try to save  their homes, only to lose them  the following day.  One family I know, after they  lost their home, still refused to  leave, they had to save their  animals, so they stayed with  them all night in an old barn  completely surrounded by 10  feet of water.  The danger is over, but the  hardest part has just begun for  these exhausted people - they  must go back and try to salvage  Please turn to page 11  More letters  on Page IX  Skookum  ^   -'  ' **C%i  m��  ���^K-'-nwil^i   * '^- *  ���  ,  -V  Skookum Jacks says...

The  average person cannot afford to  take their family to events in  Vancouver and stay overnight  and miss work the next morning.  The Transportation Committee in their forthcoming Think  Tank Session, should address  the cost to our district that the  loss of ferry worker jobs has  created, and what effect a ferry  system that services the Coast so  inadequately has on the local  businesses and residents. They  should hammer away at the  provincial government with  economic facts and maintain a  consistant approach.  Twenty-five years ago, early  and late sailings were provided  and high deficits were not being  compiled. The administration  of our existing ferry corporation  seems to be the bottom line problem.

A second Public Hearing is being held to satisfy legal requirements and to provide a further opportunity for public input. This bylaw has undergone an extended process of referral and input and  substantial changes have been made as a result of the previous Public Hearing and meetings with other  agencies.  Changes of general concern which have been made since the previous Public Hearing are as follows:  1.    The number of dwellings per parcel, which was the single most contentious issue at the previous  Public Hearing, has been addressed thus:  - Previously the Residential I Zone allowed: ���  1 dwelling per parcel  - The Residential I Zone has been revised to allow:  1 dwelling per parcel on parcels less than 2,000 sq. M  1 dwelling and 1 guest house on parcels greater than 2,000 sq. M  2 dwellings per parcel on parcels greater than 3,500 sq. M  - Previously the Residential II Zone allowed:  1 dwelling on parcels less than 2,000 sq. M  1 duplex or 1 dwelling and 1 guest house on parcels greater than 2,000 sq. M  - The Residential II Zone has been revised to further allow:  2 dwellings on parcels greater than 3,500 sq. M  2. Changes were made to home occupation provisions:  - Deleting home occupation from the Residential I Zone and replacing it with a home office  provision.  - Inclusion of one nonfamily employee for a home occupation.  - Exclusion of metal fabricating from a home occupation.  3. Changes were made to permit vehicle repair in the Rural I Zone, subject to conditions.  4. Sawmill was added as a permitted use in the 11 Zone on parcels over 1.75 ha., subject to cond-  tions.  5. The conditions of enforcement were amended to allow entry on private property only at a  "reasonable time" as per the Municipal Act.  6. Oyster shucking was added to the definition of aquaculture.  7. Preschool was added to the definition of public use.  8. A preamble to the bylaw was Included to reflect the relationship between the Bylaw and the  Agricultural Land Reserve and Forestry Act.  Map Changes  Several individual and site specific changes permitting continuation of existing permitted uses were  made. Minor changes in the public assembly and Rural 3 (Agricultural Land Reserve) Zones were made  to reflect recent changes in status.  The most important mapping change has been the deletion of water zoning from potential resource conflict areas as requested by Forestry and Lands, Parks and Housing. The change in water zoning  necessitated resubmitting the bylaw to Public Hearing.  Changes requested at the previous Public Hearing but not made are:  1. Requested change to a Davis Bay propertyto permit a Pub was not made in respect to a previous  Public Hearing on this matter.  2. Several nonconforming and resource related amendments requested were not made now, but will  be received as separate amendments to allow specific public input. Eg. rezoning of gravel processing sites. Bylaw 264 provides a more acceptable zone for such uses.  3. Zoning to premit a fish hatchery on Chapman Creek was left unchanged to allow the project to prp:  ceed.  The Board endorses this new bylaw in its revised form, as we feel it accommodates as much as'possible  the wishes of the residents and property owners as well as meeting the objectives and policies of senior  government agencies. This new bylaw allows greater freedom and flexibility of land uses which more  closely reflect the lifestyle and aspirations of the Sunshine Coast. Increased capacity to accommodate  business and industry, large and small, is also provided.  For these reasons the Board is anxious to see this bylaw adopted as soon as possible in order that the  benefits it offers may be realized.

About 70  people attending the monthly  meeting on October 1 were  presented with a newsletter, and  a separate page of activities to  keep track of times and dates.  Jim Munro was in the chair.  Missing was the treasurer Jim  McPeake, who has been suffering a heart condition, and it is  with deep sorrow that we have  learned of this death in hospital.  Love and sympathy go out to  his wife Cathy. Dear Jim will be  greatly missed.  Also on the sick list is Bill  Martin, and we all pray for an  early recovery.  At the November annual  meeting on November 5 at 1:30  p.m. election of officers will  take place, so it is hoped that all  capable members will come  prepared to fill a vacancy.  Tickets for the annual  Christmas dinner on December  14 will be available at $7 per  member on a first come basis.  Carpet bowling competition  commenced the week of October 10. Teams have been  chosen but Ed Connor has  room for more. Come on  Wednesdays before 1 p.m. and  get your name on the list. It's  mild exercise and fun.  Following carpet bowling,  Norm Lambert has dart teams  lined up for the first five week  tournament.  Friday fun nights are in full  swing. Card playing, Whist and  Crib, starts at 7:30 sharp. After  a light lunch, many members  have a dart game.  We had our first potluck dinner of the season on Saturday,  October 6. Attendance was  poor, but the dinner was very  good.

Rigby Returning Officer  by Jeanie Parker, 886-3973  The big news in- Roberts  Creed this week was^ of course,  the theft of the fire truck; Stolen  Saturday night of the long  weekend, it was found in a  Pender Harbour gravel pit by  helicopter search on Thanksgiving Day.  Damage was extensive to the  bearings, the drive shaft, the  new $14,000 pump, and  possibly the transmission  among other things. Only some  things are covered by insurance  and the truck will have to be  sent to Vancouver for part of  the repairs.  The tanker is a vital piece of  firefighting equipment, particularly above the highway and  other areas where there are no  fire hydrants. Fortunately fire  chief Denis Mulligan was able  to arrange to borrow a truck  from the Gibsons department-  for the interim.      ���    I  Police have some clues to  work on to track down the  culprits. Roberts Creekers  already know the thieves' name:  itis"MUDD".  COMING MEETINGS  At press time there was no  guest speaker lined up for this  Wednesday's Community  Association meeting. However,  it is expected that Brett  McGillivray will be on hand to  report on regional board news  and to answer questions.  Meeting starts at 8 p.m. at the  Roberts Creek Community  Hall.  There's a public hearing next  Monday, October 22, on the  regional rezoning by-law. This  extra hearing is due to the  changes made after so many  people complained about the  restrictions on the number of  dwellings per lot. The meeting is  at the Roberts Creek Community hall starting at 7 p.m. It's advisable to get there on time as  these things don't take long if  there's no one there to ask questions or voice objections.  HALLOWE'EN COMING  Have   you   started   your  Hallowe'en costume yet? It's  not that far off.

BINGO ENDING  This is the last week of Thursday night bingo at the Roberts  Creek Legion, so if you're feeling lucky it might be your big  chance. Bingo will return to the *  Legion in May.  Thursday night cribbage and  bridge will start November 8 at  the Legion. This is a really  social evening even if you don't  consider yourself a champion  pegger. Everybody is welcome.

CADETS RECRUITING  I finally found out the difference between the Navy  League and Sea Cadets. The  Royal Canadian Sea Cadet  Corps is for young people age  13 to 18 and is sponsored by the  Canadian Forces, even to. the  extent of having uniforms supplied. The Navy League is for  younger kids and has less strin-  ��� gent requirements for the formation of a group.  There are Navy League  groups in both Gibsons and  Sechelt but there are not yet  enough members for a formally  recognized Sea Cadet Corps.  However, prospective cadets are  drilling and undergoing instruction in the hope that a corps can  again be formed on the Coast.  The Sea Cadet Recruiting  Corps meets every Thursday  evening at 6 in the Roberts  Creek gym to drill and learn  about navigation, sailing,  seamanship, and leadership.  They are also receiving practical  experience on the water on  weekends.  The Sea Cadets Corps provides  good training,  summer  cainps, employment opportunities, and even the possibility  of international travel.' The  local group is looking for more  recruits. Phone 886-7825 for  more information.  CRAFT TABLES  A reminder to craftspeople to  book their tables for the  Roberts Creek Grafts Faire on  November 25 by phoning  885-2972 or 885-5206.

The poor teenager has a  hard time making choices about  joining these organizations that  have been arranged for them.  Enough already. It is time  that the teens took over their  own direction. Many do not  want to belong to organized  anything. Just because dad or  mom enjoyed doing something  doesn't mean that they would  enjoy it.  Get your brains working. If  you like playing chicken with  your old man's car but he  refuses to lend it, why don't you  get together, fix up a wreck, and  find some space (legal) and  race.  If you think you would like to  ride horseback, work in a  stable, get to know what is involved and how to care for  horses* earn some money and  you might buy or rent your own  horse.  If you want a roller-skating  rink again, find out what it  takes to get it going and offer to  help.  If you want teen dances, offer to help police them and they  will happen. It is only the threat  of vandalism that prevents them  from happening now. You  would be surprised at whan teen  appeal can do. Be productive,  not destructive.

I  woke up to the sound of Garf  and Diana-exclaiming over the  50 year fir "inCfrbnt of the house  which h$$ just toppled over,  right before their eyes. Luckily  the house was not damaged but  when I walked out back I saw  that the little house next door  had lost a very great number of  ?ts roof shingles.  As I toured, around the harbour I heard reports of a whole  float and boat house up ��& moving itself dangerously towards  the shore. It was rescued in  time. A few marinas had pilings  let go but all damage was  minimized by alert marina  owners. When it's blowing that  hard you can be sure they're out  checking on their livelihoods;  I guess there were enough  storms and high winds three  years ago to have cleared out  many of the punky trees and to  have put folks on alert as to  what might come down or  break loose at anchor.

WEDDING BELLS  It's official! Beata Malkus  phoned the other day to say that  she will be married to John  . Spraggs on December 1 up here  in the Harbour. John is an elec-*  tronics engineer at Microtel  Pacific Research in Discovery  Park at SFU. That's where they  do a lot of work for the space  communications program.  Beata will definitely not be  giving up her practise here and *  she wants people to know that.  I'm certainly glad to hear that,  because anything Beata has  done for me has been clear, well  finished and reasonably priced.  Now if you think, that's a  plug you're right but it's totally  voluntary and unsolicited.  Beata's a good person, sharp  lawyer, and we're lucky to have  her. Congratulations Beata!

Or is Silver just  not so friendly some days?  The view and trip onto Red  Top mountain cannot be put into words. You have to do it to  experience the feelings and "the  view. Ron and Greg did it last  week by hike and bike.  Marie Wallace is crutching  around school after twisting her  ankle last week. She missed the  school trip to Sechelt to view  telephones which the children  all enjoyed as much as they did  the weather that day. It was  storming and they counted nine  trees down on the highway. We  at home were without hydro for  most of the day.  The blah  weather is here.

There were representatives  from Powell River (10), Pender  Harbour (5), Sechelt, about 20  counting offical delegates as  well as visitors. Also present',  was our provincial president,  .our own Adele DeLange who is  a member of the provincial executive and who most effectively saw that we kept to the  business at hand.  Of provincial interest was the  announcement that the provincial convention will be held at  the Blue Boy Motel, Vancouver,  May 12, 13 and 14.  Other business was of a more  routine nature.  On the local scene we are  awaiting the news that our  financing is taking shape and we  will soon be able to shot holding  our breath and start breathing  normally again.  We have many new members  and we are anxious that they  should avail themselves of the  opportunity to take part in our  varied activities and seize the  opportunity to make new  friends. We look forward with  pleasure to making new acquaintances.  Be sure to mark your calendars and buy your tickets for  the repeat concerts to be given  October 20 and 27. These shows  are for our building fund and I  know you will enjoy the performances of these excellent  local artists. They are always  worth the price of admission.  The title will be the "Fun of  Group Singing". I am sure  there will be surprises in the  programs. Tickets can be  secured from Len Herder, Larry  Grafton, Strings 'n Things and  Books & Stuff.  There will be many delightful  changes from the original program.  We need that new hall and  'By Golly' we are going to get it.  Pacific  bfecaliohal  Institute  LOG GRADING AND SCALING  TRAINING OPPORTUNITY  Pacific Vocational Institute's Continuing Education and  INDUSTRAIN division, in cooperation with Capilano College, is  offering a training opportunity in Log Grading and Scaling.  This intensive 160 hour course prepares persons with little or no  experience for the examination leading to provincial certification as  a Log Scaler and Grader.  START DATE:  October 23, 1984 to April 15, 1985  SESSIONS:  Tuesdays & Thursdays - 7-10 pm  some Saturdays      9-4:40 pm  LOCATION:  Capilano College, Sechelt  FEE:  $585  For further information and registration contact: Capilano College,  1360 Inlet Avenue, Sechelt, B.C.

"PROFIT THROUGH TRAINING"  A Multi-Campus Post-Secondary Provincial  Institute incorporated under the College  and Institute Act  A number of changes for all  those whose telephone number  starts with 886  i('��.Mi:  on-;  \M  On October 20, Gibsons telephone exchange 886 will become part of a new  digital electronic switching system which B.C.Tel is installing throughout  the province.  A number of changes will result from this conversion.  Change #1 ��� Push button phones.  If you have a push button (Touch Calling) phone and have not yet arranged  with B.C. Tel for a Touch Calling line, this is a very significant change for you.  You see, Touch Calling service requires special programming in an  electronic exchange. This programming has already been arranged for those  customers who have obtained Touch Calling service from B.C.Tel and who  are now paying monthly charges for their Touch Calling facilities. After the  electronic conversion, calls cannot be made from a Touch Calling telephone  without this special programming in our central office equipment.  To avoid any loss of service and for further details of Touch Calling rates,  please call our Customer Service Office immediately at 112-986-1951 (toll free)  for residential telephones or 112-687-6441 (toll free) for business telephones,  between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday.  Change #2 ��� Seven digit dialling.  Also effective October 20, customers must dial all seven digits of the  telephone number they wish to reach in order to complete a local call.  The new electronic equipment installed will no longer permit completion of  local calls when only five or six digits are dialled.  Change #3 ��� Party line customers.  Also effective October 20, party line customers need to dial only seven digits  when calling another party on their line. The dialling code "18" should no  longer be used.  Changes for the better.  Installation of this highly sophisticated switching equipment is a significant  step towards bringing you more efficient service.  It is planned that by year-end, half the phones in B.C. will be electronically  controlled, and by 1985, three-quarters of all phones will be converted.  This new electronic system serving Gibsons will employ digital technology  which is the state-of-the-art in electronic switching systems.  As you would expect, a conversion such as this is a massive undertaking.  But the benefits, especially over the long run, are equally substantial.  Cost control, and its ultimate effect on the rates you will pay for your phone  service in the future, is the major benefit to telephone customers. For many  reasons (among them maintenance efficiency, space-saving and operational  reliability), electronic switching technology helps us to meet customer needs  efficiently and, at the same time, to hold the line as best we can against the  costs of providing service to you.

For the 14 years we have been in Gibsons that park has been little more than an eyesore, subject  to all sorts of mischief and vandalism.  Every effort in the past, on my part and that of the  business community, to have it and the washrooms rebuilt  brought forth little but negativism. Finally, by unanimous  decision on the present council, as the first installment of a  Gibsons Revitalization Program, it has happened.  The practical design for. caretaking and the placement of  flowers and shrubs make this now a beautiful, eye-catching-  corner.  We must extend grateful thanks to the Gibsons Garden  Club for the planting and care of the plants and flowers in  the park. It is a totally beautiful presentation. Thanks is also  due to Neville Conway of the Coast News who donated his  skills in drawing up the design of the park as it presently is  and to Kevin Ryan who brought to council's attention that  the provincial government's revitalization program for  municipalities was still in effect.  One must pay tribute also to the municipal staff, notably  municipal inspector Ralph Jones, and the volunteer workers  of Katimavik who in the heat of the summer did the job.  Isn't it nice for a community such as ours to have toilets  for public use once again? I never could agree with the suggestion that restaurants or small shops in the area should  provide these facilities for the public at large.  I have the feeling that as this park and these facilities fill  our hearts with pride it will also deter the risk of vandalism,  but should they\be threatened it behooves us all, whoever is  near at hand, to be watchful and defensive. The park  belongs to all of us; we must protect it.  It is to be hoped that an office of the chamber of commerce will soon be constructed and occupied on the space  allocated. It is a nice place for people to sit and reflect and  for tourists to stop and get local information.  By the way, if you haven't taken a good look at the new  marina, in particular at the aesthetic treatment of the  foreshore, I suggest you do so at the first opportunity. It  does us proud and is another real plus for the town of Gibsons and the Sunshine Coast.  tpT-v-^eja-nw  p^ane^r^KfK^mQ,j^^e�� by Bill Edney  "REAL WIN"  K.L.D.

October J5&4flB4  mumwnnwemmmmQQi  program o  by Ken Dalgleish  Ofra Haraoy played to a  packed house at the Twilight  Theatre last Thursday night and  the excitement and enjoyment  began even as the familiar faces  we see at most cultural events  were saying their greetings in the  lobby. The Coast is quite starved for classical music and the  young 'cellist offered a program  of great variety to the satisfaction of everyone.  Opening with a M contemporary Jewish folk tune, Ms.  Harnoy sent a lustrous sound  through the theatre which had  no difficulty overpowering the  well travelled little grand piano  from Elphinstone. The  acoustics of the Boothroyds'  theatre were perfect although  the piano may have been  "buried" back on the stage a bit  losing sound to the curtains and  proscenium.  By the second piece, Brahms,  the audience was taken  over...enthusiastically applauding between movements of  the Sonata in E minor. It was  this Brahms .that particularly attracted me t6 Ms. Harnoy.  Exactly one year ago I heard  Undercover review  the international sensation Yo  Yo Ma from South Korea, playing with the CBC symphony orchestra ih Ottawa. Falling  across his-'cello and arching his  back, laying his head far behind  his chair, the mature performer  hit the peaks and drained the  valleys and altogether, proved  why he was a "sensation". Ms.  Harnoy seemed so much more  personal with her music and sitting in our little community  theatre I enjoyed the performance so much more than the one  a year ago.  I'm sure the audience enjoyed  the Spanish composers the most  (de Falla, Granados) with  delicate pizzicatos and two oc-  : tlfte slides. Popper's Dance of  ifie'Efyes brought\ out gleeful  murmurs as Ms. Harnoy  playfully tossed her head with  the frisky melody played on  harmonics bf the strings.  My favorite was Lucas Foss!  I've not heard his music before  and the clear melody lines  mingling throughout Ma very  complicated texture of /harmonic changes was most5 dissonant and moving. ;  Alan M'Crean" Crane  deserves a grand thank you for  devising this concert series. As  president of the Arts Council  the credit is entirely his for  bringing Ms. Harnoy to our  community. ���  i���Notice to���   The Tiger's story  Alpaca fur cdats designed at Shadow Baux Gallery in Sechelt and  made in Peru were introduced fo the Coast at a fashion show held  last Friday to celebrate the shop's first anniversary.  ���Joan Huestis Foster photo  by Betty & Perry Keller  There must be a special  literary quality to the air of  southern Saskatchewan these  days because it's the writers  from those parts that have been  walking off with all the governor general's medals and book  prizes and drama awards.

There were  several individual designs of  chunky brass and silver  jewellery which looked much  heavier than they felt, all  designed by the well travelled  Katannya Koly who was also  the very dashing co-ordinator of  the evening.  Molloys have acquired exclusive local rights to Alpaca  furs from South America. They  send their designs down to Peru  and. the furs are sent back.  Mostly white, some; with browii,  trim, all very cozy and comfortable.  The models exhibited clever  use of scarves and jewellery  combined with the totally relaxed comfort of glamourous jogging and jump suits.' (Really  more for at home than the  highway.) And in this year of  the vest there were vests quilted  by Linda Malloy into gorgeous  flowered patterns which are  beautifully practical and warm.  Often it is the unbridled enthusiasm which draws me to the  expanding Malloy enterprise as  much as the clever original  thought that goes into  everything they do. Their joy at  marketing the work of local and  distant artisans is contagious  and their energy is formidable.  Allen film  at Centre  Zelig, the chameleon man,  has arrived to challenge all who  have prepared to bury Woody  Allen once and for all.  Zelig is Allen's 1983 film of  the non-entity who was endowed with the involuntary ability  to change into those with whom  he associated.  The film is in part a parody  of those beloved old newsreels  with their settled view of a  world in which America could  do not wrong.  Andrew Sarris (Village Voice)  said, "It is hot often that this  jaded reviewer steps into a  screening room without the  slightest idea of what is to befall  him. Zelig turned out to be one  of those rare occasions and the  sheer audacity and ingenuity of  the execution filled me with a  perpetually bubbling merriment."  Zelig will be shown at the  Arts Centre on Wednesday, October 17 at 8 p.m. Tickets are  $3.50 for adults. Seniors and  students pay $2.50.  sVj,K��~/:-,r .JO  r*".**n.v  ����  '���daaLaraBBH  ntfg  SPCA  Persons wishing to make  tax deductible donations  to the  Sunshine Coast SPCA  may send funds  c/o Box 2094,,  Sechelt, B.C.

It's an informative book; even for people  who are not hockey addicts���and neither of us  are���because it's a great success  story, the victory of a guy with  limited education and talent in a  tough business.  Tiger Williams was not  brilliant in school; he knew that  if he was going to get anywhere,  "it wasn't going to be through a  schoolbook". And he wasn't a  fantastically great hockey  player, but "hockey fighting  was a natural thing" for him.  He came by his fighting instincts through his father, a  tough Welshman who wbrked  atWeyburn's mental hospital,  and who in his spare time taught  his sons to fight to win.  Whenever his father drove  Tiger's Bantam team home  from a game they had lost, he  would punish them by refusing  to turn on the heater in the bus.  While it's pretty-hard to look  at a guy like Tiger Williams,  whose role in hockey is to maim  the other players, as a hero,  Tiger: A Hockey Story does  make his personality understandable. And while neither of  us are willing to concede that  any real "sport" should  Ijroutinely result in broken bones  * and gaping ^wounds, we found  ourselves quite taken with this  fighter, with his' stern self-  discipline and his obsession with  success.  Most bf the credit for this  sympathetic portrait, however,  probably has to go to James  Lawtpn, the Vancouver Sun  sports columnist who shaped  this book, wrote the introductions to each chapter, and  edited Williams' narrative down  to manageable size. The book  he has produced is easy to read  and definitely provocative. We  recommend it for Christmas  giving to the hockey buffs on  your lists.

I was very pleased that almost  80 per cent of all those people  eligible to vote did vote; Canada  is one of a very small number, of  countries in the world where the  people still have a say in how  they iare governed, and an important step in protecting that  right is voting. So my first  thanks and congratulations go  to those who voted.  Second, I would like to congratulate my fellow candidates  for a clean, hard fought campaign. Only another candidate  could know of the hundreds or  thousands of hours it takes to  campaign, effectively ih this  riding. There are 121,000 people  spread over 30,000 square miles  of the island and the coast of  B.C. For each of the candidates, the campaign  represented significant personal  and financial costs..I would like  to thank ahd to congratulate my  fellow candidates for offering to  seek election and for the  tremendous job which each of  them did during the election.  I would also like to congratulate Mike Hicks. He and  his campaign organization executed one of the best political  campaigns which I have seen in  this area in the last 15 years. I  know the personal and financial  costs of a two year campaign  and the price paid by the candidate. Also, the great disappointment in not winning after  such a tremendous effort.  Nonetheless, it was a job well  done and my best wishes for the  future to Mike and his family.  My sincere thanks to all those  who supported the NDP. I  would specifically like to-thank  Don Lockstead, Karen Sanford,  and Colin Gablemann, and all  the hundreds of NDP campaign  workers for a tremendous job  well done.  Thank you to all those who  voted for me and the NDP on  election day. In the forthcoming  thirty-third parliament, I will  represent you to the best of my  ability.  Raymond Skelly, MP  Comox-Powell River  Plagiarism charged  EDITORS NOTE: A copy of  the folio-wing letter was received  for publication.  Ray Skelly, MP  Parliament Buildings  Ottawa/Ontario  Dear Mr. Skelly:  It was with some surprise that  I found my letter to you* concerning the Fraser Institute forwarded verbatim to the Coast  News with your name attached  urging action (Fraser Institute  No Charity, September 10).  While I believe the editor of  the Coast News to be a capable  alderman and journalist, I  doubt that his investigation will  lead to the Fraser Institute's loss  of tax exempt status.' Gibsons  council is presently more concerned with free boat launching  ramps, which they can control,  than free enterprisers, whom  they cannot.  Similarly while the Coast  News has a strong influence  locally, it lacks the national  scope necessary to force  changes in the Charities Act.  Educate its readers as to the  Fraser Institute's intentions and  manipulations, yes; end its tax  exemption, no.  In all seriousness, I understand that you have been very  vocal in attacking the Fraser Institute in the House of Commons and have not needed the  investigative powers of. the  Coast News..

Gibsons  retain|p'good, ball in line-out  and open field play, but were  aggressively matched in set  scrums. The three lines showed  excellent pose offensively and  defensively.  Scoring came early when  Freeman Smith shot through a  well-read gap for a 40 yard try.  Dave Rainer converted the cen-  'Mftrefpost Msebre. Fullback Greg  ;$ylte also scored on a fullback  -in option.  The second half opened up a  lot of good rugby. Rucking and  mauling, Gibsons' scrum was  always there first and in large  numbers. Break forward Dennis  Stevenson continues to be there  when he's needed, and managed  to score twice, once supporting  his backs and another off his  driving pack in a peeling goal  line ruck. Stand-off Steve Almond faked to his outside three  line and deked his way through  for the final score. Dave Rainer  converted a total of three out bf  five converts and also placed a  solid thirty-five yard field goal.  Rowers' only scoring came  from a field goal in the second  half.

These wash and  changerooms would be open to  the public, and the only cost-  sharing envisioned would be to  cover hot water and cleaning  costs.  What the club wanted at this  point, was a long-term plan,  one to which they arid the conv-  w  munity could be committed-;  Alderman John Burnside sug^.  gested that the planning conv  mittee extend the club's present  lease on the Armours Beacli  facility until January 1988, as a  gesture of good-will and sup-?  port. The club ineeds the facility  as a base from which to operate  during the completion of their  ambitious project. This was  agreed to by the committee.

In reviewing these  characters, real and imaginary,  I can unhesitatingly state that  there is one who stands out and  predominates over all the  others; one who since my  earliest recollection has been  with me and who has had a profound effect on my life. In a  way I suppose I should be  grateful to have met him. He  has led me over the years  through many foreign lands' and  I have seen and done so many  things that would have been undreamed of and impossible had  I not had him at my side.  I will introduce you to this  gentleman - his name is John  Barleycorn and, were the whole  story told, I am certain that I  am far from being along in having had him as a companion  during these wild and boisterous  years that comprise one man's  journey through life.  I met him, as I have recounted in a former article, at  quite an early age when I was  still a schoolboy, around  14-years of age. My father was a  grocer and provision merchant  in a little town in Kent, England  and, as part of his services to his  customers, he had a wine and  spirits licence and a reasonably  well-stocked wine cellar in the  basement of the store. Little did  I realize at the time that, at the  instigation of some of the older  boys when I stole a bottle of  port wine during the noon break  from school, by this one simple  act I was committed for life.  For better for worse, as it proved, to be, I had "a monkey on  my back" and, except for brief  periods of time when I made  some futile attempt to get rid of  him, he has clung there  tenaciously ever since; a sum  total of 63 years. I am not able  or willing at this time to get  down in detail all the aspects of  our stormy relationship, but I  can with complete honesty say  that most of the major  calamities that have befallen me  have been brought about while  under this influence and there  are times, when I examine some  of the physical scars on my person and attempt to assess the  mental ones, that I marvel I am  still alive..  Perhaps I should make it  clear right now that I am not  proselytizing for a prohibition  against liquor, nor have I any  intention at the moment of join-  . ing the WCTU or any other  movement that would ban its  use. It would be an infringement of other individuals' rights  to attempt to do so, but what I  am saying and i believe it implicitly, is that my life would  have been a far different one  and possibly an easier one had I  not been led along many garden  paths by my so-called friend  J.B. I am positive that that condition has applied to the many  hundreds, thousands or millions  of men and women who have  been seduced by this smooth  and efficient betrayer and who,  like myself, were completely innocent of just what they were  doing when they took the first  sip of whatever booze the  gentleman was offering at the  time.  I have read most of Jack  London's works, but the one  that in my opinion stands out  over all the others is his  autobiographical account of  this association with the same  John Barleycorn and is titled as  such. How I envy his gift of expression and wish I had only a  fragment of this genius and  honesty in describing the part  that booze played in his life  and, ultimately, in its tragic  end. Apparently, from what I  read later, his publishers were  dead set against this particular  book and used every device and  influence they could muster in  order to discourage him from  either writing it or putting it into  print but, being jack London  and at the peak of his fame, he  insisted that they go ahead and  a limited edition was issued.  I have never read anything  like it nor do I expect to again.  He spells it all out as only he can  and makes it undeniably clear  that, in retrospect, it is not a  matter of what one ought to  have done, or ought to do, or  ought not to do - it is what one  does do. That is the everlasting,  irrefragable fact. In life, like  Jack London, I did just what I  did' and all the regrets and  recriminations at this stage can-  O BCFGRRIGS  WINTER 1984/85  Schedule  Revision  Effective Monday, October 22,1984 to  Wednesday, June 19,1985 inclusive:  VANCOUVER - SECHELT PENINSULA  HORSESHOE BAY-LANGDALE  Lv.

As Omar Khayyam in his  Rubaiyat so aptly puts it:  "The Moving Finger writes;  and, having writ, Moves on: nor  all thy Piety nor Wit Shall lure it  back to cancel half a Line, Nor  all thy Tears wash out a Word  of it."  To tell you the truth, I don't  know why I have written this  bloody article nor do I expect to  accomplish anything. I am not  preaching or moralizing - far  from it. Everyone lives their  lives, or should do, as they see  fit and that is the way it should  be. Each and every one of us  has to work out his own destiny  and, when the final count is  taken, it doesn't matter what  path one has trod so long as it  hasn't hurt other people too  badly.  If I had a wish that was practical and not just wishful thinking, it might be that, had I to  live it all over again, I could do  so without John Barleycorn as  my companion, mentor and  guide.

Canada is the world's leading exporter  of pulp and paper, supplying one-  third of total world exports. After the  United States, it is the world's second  largest producer.  The competitive drive of the Canadian  pulp and paper industry, along with its experienced and skilled workers, have helped  make Canada a force to be reckoned with  in world markets.  Today, our leadership position is being  challenged. Swedes, Americans, Brazilians  and others, eager for their share of the  market, have stepped up their production  capacity. A new competitive environment  has emerged, and Canadian producers must  be more vigilant than ever before.  Producers who keep their costs at competitive levels will thrive, gain efficiency,  attract new investment, grow with the  market, and keep on providing jobs. That's  how winners and losers are sorted out in the  pulp and paper business.  Over the next 15 years, an increase of 70  million tonnes in world consumption of pulp  and paper is expected. What will Canada's  share be? This growth presents important  opportunities for Canadian producers, and  for Canada in terms of jobs, income, new  investment, and exports. Our industry is  poised to meet this challenge.  The Canadian pulp and paper industry has  been our country's main economic engine for  decades, contributing more to Canada's  balance of payments than any other sector of  the economy. It can continue to provide  Canadians with the economic and social  benefits that flow from a thriving industry.  Through dedication, higher productivity, aid  the ability to meet the challenge of cost competitiveness, pulp and paper can remain the  spearhead of Canada's well-being.

The old saying that the  RCMP always get their man  certainly comes to mind following the results of the Sechelt  RCMP's recent investigations  into a rash of break and entries  that had been plaguing Sechelt  and areas since the beginning of  September.  The concentrated efforts of a  few of the regular members of  the Sechelt detachment and the  general assistance of all was  credited for the successful outcome of five separate investigations into break and entries of  premises located in Sechelt,  West Sechelt, Porpoise Bay,  Madeira Park, Davis Bay and  Nelson Island.  An adult male from Pender  Harbour, arrested on October 6  was responsible for the greatest  number of break-ins and thefts.  The man was arrested on  Nelson Island after police  received several reports of break  and entry from Quarry Bay on  Nelson Island. At the time, it  appeared that only five summer  homes had been entered; from  those, food stuffs, liquor,  assorted household items, a  boat and a motor had been  stolen.  One of the cabins belonged to  a member of the RCMP from  Vancouver who flew over to  Nelson Island with a friend in  order to check things out. The  men noticed that a camp had  been set up near the beach on  the island and stopped to look  around; they recognised several  items that had been reported as  stolen, arrested a suspect,  brought him back to Sechelt for  questioning and discovered an  outstanding warrant against  him for parole violation.  Subsequently, six more break  and entries of summer homes  were reported from Nelson  Island. The suspect, who is also  believed to be responsible for  several break and entries  reported from the Madeira Park  area between September 16 and  October 5, will appear in the  Secheit Provincial Court this  week. All the articles reported  stolen from Nelson Island have  been recovered.  A Sechelt juvenile male has  also been arrested in connection  with break and entries which occurred in the West Sechelt area  early in October. The youth is  also believed to be responsible  for several thefts from boats  moored in Porpoise Bay.  B.C. & Yukon  An adult female from Sechelt  has been charged with break,  entry and theft following in-  vestigaion into the break-in of  Pacifica Pharmacy on  September 19. Of the large  quantity of drugs stolen from  the drugstore by the woman,  most was recovered.  A Sechelt man has been taken  into custody as a suspect into  the break-in of the B.C.  Forestry offices on September  25.  Finally, another Sechelt man,  Andrew Bilious, has been  charged with breaking into the  Beach Buoy three times over a  period of two weeks. Each time,  Bilious stole small quantities of"  food.  GIBSONS RCMP  The Roberts Creek Fire Hall  was broken into on October 7  and a fire truck was stolen. The  truck was later recovered in  Madeira Park. Some  mechanical damage was done to  the motor.  SECHELT RCMP  Two break and entries were  reported. On October 10, a  garage located on Wharf Street  was entered and a chain saw  was stolen. On October 11, the  Foster Care  department of highways  premises in Madeira Park was  entered and a large quantity of  tools was stolen.  On October 9, a $900 underwater camera was reported  stolen from a boat moored in  Madeira Park. The theft could  have occurred in July.  Arson is suspected in a fire  which destroyed a vacant house  located on Porpoise Bay Road.  Oily rags were found near the  house.  Happy fortieth anniversary to  the celebrated voyage of the St.  Roch through the Northwest  Passage in 1944. The St. Roch  was an RCMP patrol boat constructed in 1928 by the Burrard  Dry Dock Company of Vancouver and became the  "floating detachment" of the  Canadian north, carrying supplies to remote RCMP posts  and patrolling the western AR-  tic waters. The St. Roch sailed  into world history on October  16, 1944, when it arrived in  Vancouver after completing the  first two-way voyage of the  Northwest Passage, from the  Pacific to the Atlantic and back  again. The St. Roch is now on  permanent display at the Vancouver Maritime Museum.  *    You can make  a difference.  Parents needed  Super mobile home and real estate  for sale, perfect location.

Social worker Therese  Egan has been assigned the task  of recruiting foster parents and  developing a training program  and support services to assist  them in doing what she calls "a  very special job".  Egan says that many people  think of fostering as "taking a  child into your home and  treating him the same as your  own". While this statement  reflects a willingness to accept a  child into one's family, it also  reveals a basic misunderstanding of fostering.  Caring for someone else's  child is not the same as caring  for one's own. Children in care  have special needs. They have  experienced traumatic separation and loss. They are likely to  have experienced other difficulties before leaving their  homes. Most foster children,  because of past experiences,  have  a greater than average  need for attention, affection  and guidance, and may require  more understanding and patience than is usually required of  parents.  In recruiting foster parents  Egan is looking for warm, loving and accepting people with a  capacity to give much and expect  few  immediate rewards..  In most cases, being a foster  parent means giving the best  parenting care to a child who is  unable to live with his family  for a time���while never losing  sight of the importance of the  child's natural family. However  close the bonds to a foster child,  foster parents have to be willing  to let him go at some point and  help him re-unite with his family.  In the meantime, if you are  interested in learning more  about fostering you are invited  to an information meeting on  the evening of October 25.

The recently completed  analysis, in draft form, was supplemented by an extensive slide  presentation showing examples  of the conditions referred to in  the study, and by a series of  maps showing where such conditions are found.  Geological areas investigated  included types of soils and  associated drainage problems;  location of rock outcroppings;  slope of the land and low-lying  areas; watercourses and  underground drainage; hazardous land conditions; types of  ground cover.

Room for optimism  Child services concern  by Dianne Evans  As restraint becomes a way of  life and government spending is  cut even more, many are concerned that inevitable moves  torwards the privatization of  government services will lead to  a lowering of standards in the  interests   of   profit-making.  ��  1  i  m  m  m  m  Let's  go to the  movies, at  home!

Last week I spoke with Mr.  Dave Mewhort, president of the  Federal of Private Child Care  Agencies of British Columbia,  (FPCCABC) about the federation and what recent  developments have taken place  within the field.  Dave Mewhort  The FPCCABC emerged early in 1980, its purpose to "foster  the highest possible standards of  residential care and rehabilitation "for children in the pro-  Jade Palace     f f g (_\  Restaurant   DAILY LUNCH SPECIAL  1.

There are 25 member agencies, representing all types of  residential services for children  in B.C., including those for the  mentally retarded, physically  handicapped, emotionally  disturbed and so on. All but one  are run by non-profit societies.  A recent development has  been the ratification of the  FPCCABC's "Standards of  Children's Residential Care  Facilities". These standards are  to be promoted in the private  sector, province wide. The  government has recently  transferred the operation of virtually all residential facilities to  the private sector, somewhat  hastily, according to Mr.  Mewhort, but these new standards will help to iron out the  problems and improve care.  Copies of the standards have  been sent to the ministries involved in the care of children,  those of education, health,  human resources and the attorney general. The response,  though informal as yet, has  been very encouraging. Said  Mr. Mewhort, "I'm optimistic  that together we can adopt a  mutually acceptable set of standards of care and the means by  which to encourage and  monitor them."  What this move means for  the hundreds of children in the  care of private agencies  throughout B.C. is that they  will be assured of a uniform,  minimum standard of care, no  matter how remote their facility. Guidelines cover areas of  organization and management,  administrative practices, personnel policies, the physical  plant, and programming for the  children in care.  In the past there were very  few guidelines for the quality or  type of care; it frequently  depended on the ideas of the  regional managers, who differed considerably. Most other  provinces have a set of standards; up until now, our  children have not enjoyed this  safeguard.  I asked Mr. Mewhort how  these standards will be enforced. He told me that Phase II of  the project is now under way,  and the implemenation and  tools for measuring the standards will be ironed out by the  end of the federation's fiscal  year.  He sees the government still  playing an important role in  child care in B.C. "The government should maintain a high  level of accountability and remain involved in planning and  overseeing the provision of  social services for all people."  tion, amount, type and use of  commercial lands in the region;  location, amount, type and density of residential lands; location  of historical, scientific, recreational and agricultural lands.  The report made comment on  the sequence of future urban  development, and on the future  need for schools, parks, beach  access, play areas, added fire  protection, and a solid waste  disposal system.  "It is important to think of  what you have as a resource,"  Skogstad noted early in her  presentation when describing  the variety of the area, which included the flora and fauna of  woodlands, benchlands, shore  and ocean. Vegetation is highly  related to drainage, she pointed  out, as it both consumes  moisture and retards run-off.  She considered the service/industrial area at Pratt Road and  Highway 101 "not in harmony  with the rest of the area", and  assessed that further commer-.  cial development in area E was  both "unwarranted and unnecessary", as such needs are  filled in nearby Gibsons.  Besides logging and fishing,  both of which occur outside the  area, the only resource industry  in area E is aggregate extraction, "a consumption, not a use  of land". Potential was noted in  the field of growing berries and  soft fruits, for which the good  soils and climate are highly  suited.  While the area appears to  have a rural character, Skogstad  noted that many lots which have  been sub-divided have not yet  been developed, arid if they  were, the appearance of the area  would change significantly. Of  the 1,273 lots in area E, almost  60 per cent (760) are less than  half an acre. Of these, over half  of the quarter acre lots and 44  per cent of the lots between a  quarter and a half -acre are  undeveloped.  Most important to the area is  theMneed for a comprehensive  drainage study, said Skogstad,  noting that foreshore waters are  already contaminated from urban run-off. If septic tanks are  to remain the primary method  of sewage treatment, the report  notes that a quarter acre should  be the minimum lot size, but  that third acre lots, would be  preferable, and some areas  presently zoned third acre really  should have a two and one half  acre minimum size due to poor  drainage conditions.
