Array LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  VICTORIA, B.C.  V8V 1X4  85.4  Area E irate over expansion  Intense line-out action during last weekend's Gibsons Rugby's home game against Ex Brits. For full  report see page 12; -j��ypomfrei photo  St. Mary's fire drill  Safety reassures  by Fran Burnside  I was recently sitting in the  office of St; Mary's Hospital  administrator Nick Vucurevich  when he suddenly cut off our  conversation in mid-sentence,  wheeled^o^a^^the^^pAnd  in a^ no^noiriseri^vBtre tolaine,  "That's the fire alarm; follow  me; now."  I was definitely taken aback  for a moment, for there was no  siren or bell ringing. Then I  noticed a soft, intermittent,  muffled "bong" noise, the kind  one sometimes hears in large  department stores or which announces the arrival of upper-  class elevators.  Disobeying instructions to  "leave everything there", and  retrieving my notes and handbag, I followed Vucurevich out  into the hallway, where office  staff already stood holding  drawers of particularly important fire cards. Metal gates had  already, blocked off the win  dows into the office area, and  fire doors were closed. Checking the wall near the door of the  hospital, Vucurevich scanned a  floor plan of the hospital which  showed one area lit up. "Zone  One, smoke detector," he an-  npup(ed,M and^; nursing supervisor Wendy :Hurit marched  past on her way to the basement  area indicated.  "The fire team is already in  operation," said Vucurevich,  looking around at the calm but  definite activity in the hallway.  "If the alarm isn't turned off  within four minutes, a second,  faster alarm goes off, and the  fire department is called." We  waited...  In perhaps two minutes a  reassuring voice on the PA  system announced a "Red  Alarm", indicating no fire.  Everyone heaved a sigh of relief  and went back to work.  It was not a false alarm,  however; when the fire doors  were   opened   there   was   the  definite smell of smoke in the  air. Further investigation revealed that sparks from the incinerator had ignited a garbage  bag of paper, and staff had used  a fire hose to put it out. "We  know the incinerator can only  ..be-.burned'under ob^ryatiOB,--"  said Vucurevich. "Now we also  know our fire and heat and  smoke sensors are working, and  our fire team is effective."  For this observer, the efficiency and speed of me whole  operation was particularly  reassuring. And there was an  added bonus. The soft little  "bongs" were prob'aibiy not  recognized by most patients as  the first stage fire alarm, so absolutely no unnecessary panic  was created. Because the second  stage alarm had hot been  necessary, most patients probably will never know of the  short but tense drama which  had taken place below. It would  seem they rest in safe, as well, as  capable hands.  Solidarity's message  Poverty is violence!  by John Burnside  Two members of the Vancouver Solidarity office addressed a gathering of forty or fifty \  people in Gibsons Elementary  school gym last week. Accompanying Father Jim Roberts, a  member of the Administration  committee with Art Kube and  Renate . Shearer, was Jean  Swanson who works in the Vancouver Solidarity office.  Ms Swanson spoke first and  confined her remarks to the  provincial scene whereas Father  Roberts took a broader brush  and addressed national and international issues.  "We now know what the effect of the policies of this provincial government has been,"  said Swanson. "We have high  unemployment, more people on .  welfare, and sweeping cuts in  social services."  Swanson told those gathered  together that Statistics Canada  figures showed that poverty was  increasing twice as fast in B.C.  than in the rest of Canada.  "At the offices of Solidarity  we keep the fridge full for our  volunteer workers. They have to  eat before they can do their  volunteer work. We're hearing  stories about people on welfare  day who are eating before they  have paid for their groceries. In  some cases it's the first food  they've had in days. Reports, are  coming in about school instituting breakfasts for children  who can get nothing at home.  There have even been reported  fears that some B.C. children  are suffering brain damage  from malnutrition," said Swanson.  "Meanwhile we have a provincial government which is  creating two different worlds,"  Swanson continued. "Minister  of Human Resources, Grace  McCarthy is extolling the  wonderful world of Expo '86  constantly, apparently oblivious  of the suffering going on in this  province."  Swanson pointed out that the  hearings being conducted by  Minister of Finance, Hugh Curtis had been attended by  representatives of large companies demanding tax concessions.  "The Mining Association is  demanding free electric power  and the elimination of fixed  taxes or they will close mines  and eliminate more jobs; Jim  Matkin, president of the  Employers' Council is called for  removal of taxes on equipment; representatives of B.C.  Association of Chartered Accountants told Curtis that they  are telling their clients to avoid  investing in B.C. unless they get  some kind of tax holiday. What  would be the outcry if workers  made the same threat?" asked  Swanson,  Swanson listed demand after  demand made by right wing  spokesmen at both the provin  cial and federal levels including  the loosening of child labour  laws and the elimination of  minimum wage standards. Dr.  Pat McGeer, according to  Swanson, had called recently  for B.C. to adopt the intellectual style of the Philippines so  that B.C. citizens could compete with the Third World.  She noted that senior citizens  had not been allowed to present  a brief at a recent hearing in  Vancouver and that the president of the Community  Business and Professional  Association, who runs a dental  laboratory, had stunned the inquiry by stating: "What  business needs is full employ-  . ment. I want ordinary people to  have enough money to get their  teeth fixed."  Father Jim Roberts told the  meeting that his travels recently  throughout Canada had persuaded him that the entire nation is watching British Columbia.  "Bennett is on record as  wanting to export the B.C. solution," said Roberts. "Mainstream Christianity, by which I  mean the Anglican, United,  Lutheran, and Presbyterian  churches, as well as the Roman  Catholics is undergoing a.-  revolutionary change in attitude.  "We are saying that the poor  have the right to throw off the  Please turn to page 11  furore!  by Dianne Evans  It was a stormy meeting on  ' October 18 when Area E  representative, Director' Jim  Gurney voiced the dissatisfactions of the area with recent  boundary extensions proposed  by Gibsons town Planner Rob  / Buchan and accepted by council.  Residents of Area E and  members of the SCRD board  had learned of this move from a  local newspaper, and at. the  planning committee meeting  Director John Burnside made a  public apology to the board,  Director Gurney and to the  residents of Area E for having  neglected to report to the board  on the council meeting where  the proposal was made. This  apology was accepted by Director Gurney who is, nonetheless,  "puzzled as to why council has  taken this precipitous action".  Director Burnside explained  Mhe Gibsons council position On  the boundary question, (see  council story) stressing the point  that there are certain residents  who wish to have their properties included in the. town and  that these residents do have  rights, although they are in the  minority.  The town  of Gibsons,  explained Director Burnside, had  been  prepared  to  accept  the  Johnstone-Buchan report and it  ,was Area E's very strong opposition  to the report  which  stopped it from doing so.  ;t.   "The regional board can, of  [course, accept the Johnstone-  fBuchan  report  now  if. it  so  jchooses, but I must tell you that  after the meeting with Area E,  jGibspns council considered it a  >$eacf letter/' - said   Director  Burnside.  The proposal made by Planner Buchan to set up new  guidelines to deal with expansion and to avoid the previous  piece-meal approach to boundary extension, would include  three of the 15 applicants within  the town boundaries and is a  "modified course of action".  Said Director Burnside, "After  these three there'll be no more  applications considered until  1986."  Director Gurney's main objection to the recent events is  centered on the attitude that he  perceives the council to hold  towards the area he represents.  "Alderman Edney said that  the SCRD has no part in the  discussion, that it is a town matter (at the recent council  meeting)," said Director  Gurney. "This indicates," he  went on, "that the town feels it  can walk over the wishes of  outlying areas."  Responded Director Burnside, "We're not running  around with lassoes trying to  rope them in, these people came  to us."  Director Gurney then recommended   acceptance   by   the  Please turn to page 15  John Daly Park  officially opens  A portion of a large Chum  salmon-producing stream on  the mainland coast, which has  been designated as the new John  Daly Nature Park, will have its  official dedication on Saturday,  October 27 at 2 p.m. at Garden  Bay, on the Sechelt Peninsula.  It is named in memory of a conservationist and former commercial salmon fisherman, John  Daly, who died on February 18,  1978.  ��� Shortly thereafter, Wilf  Harper, a local contractor who  owned part of the stream,  Anderson Creek, gave three  acres surrounding it to the  regional board as a public park,  and named it after Daly, one of  the first of the local fishermen  to help him build dikes to protect spawning salmon against  flash floods.  The   Pender   Harbour   and  . District, Wild Life Society was  formed by Harper and local  commercial    and    sports  fishermen to develop and maintain the park. After almost six  years of community effort, the  park, which has a long viewing  bridge across the spawning  channel, is to have its dedication  ceremony, to be followed by a  potluck supper at nearby Lions  Park. Everyone is most  welcome.  Wild Life Society president  Ronald Malcolm will be master  of ceremonies, and the main  speaker will be Ron MacLeod,  formerly of the federal department of fisheries and oceans  and known by fishermen as  "the father of SEP".  The park is reached by taking  Highway 101 past Madeira  Park approximately eight  kilometres, to the Garden Bay  Road exit by the Gulf station.  The park is located down the  Garden Bay Road approximately two kilometres, on the left^  hand side, utilizing the Roosen  Farm turnoff.  Chief Stanley Dixon, left, presented the official crest of the Sechelt Indian Band to National Indian  Brotherhood National Chief David Ahenakew during meetings in Sechelt last week. -lnn Burnside photo  From national leader  Sechelts get support  The national chief of the National Indian Brotherhood was  in Sechelt last week, and his  message to the chief and council  of the Sechelt Indian Band was  exactly what they wanted to  hear in their struggle to gain  self-government.  "I have no choice; I am absolutely obliged to support what  they are after," said David  Ahenakew in an interview with  the Coast News. "Indians are  stuck and can't move any further (under the Indian Act). Do  we wait for changes to come  through constitutional entrenchment? We can't. I will  not."  As the Sechelt Band nas  always done, Ahenakew stressed that he was not advocating  change for all bands, only that  ways be developed to allow  those bands who wish to  become more independent and  self-determining to do so.  "We believe in sovereign  rights within the Indian community, not as a 'separate na  tion'," he said. "And only for  those bands which wish to  assume them. The restrictions  of the Indian Act and its  bureaucracy must be removed."  Enabling legislation, which  would allow the Sechelt Band to  function under its own Sechelt  Indian Band Act rather than the  Indian Act, is what the Sechelts  are hoping for. Such legislation  was introduced in the House of  Commons only days before the  last parliament recessed, and  died on the table.  "Enabling legislation will  resurface," said Ahenakew.  "I'm going to make sure it  does."  The national chief noted that  the new Conservative government* with David Crombie as  minister of Indian Affairs, has  publically recognized that the  Indian Act is destructive and  that a way must be made for Indians to determine their own  future. "Such recognition is the  key," the chief said.  Ahenakew said Crombie had  pointed out that Conservatives  were elected because they advocate change, had talked of  dismantling what he called the  'colonial system', had asked if  there were any models for  change being put forward (there  are in Sechelt and in Saskatchewan) and suggested, "Let's  build on what is there." The  minister has agreed to create a  joint committee to deal with  enabling legislation, and intends  to put a relatively short timeframe on the group's mandate.  "The Conservatives have the  chance to be the heroes,"  Ahenakew stated. "They have  the ideal opportunity to advance things, especially because  they already have all-party support."  Ahenakew has already set the  wheels in motion to arrange a  meeting in Ottawa between  Crombie and members of the  Sechelt Band Council, hopefully within the next few weeks. 2.

S;  From this point of view the most singular fact reported  from the recent Socred convention in the Okanagan is that  when question time came none thought to ask the assembled cabinet about job creation. With record levels of  unemployment reached and rising, the provincial government and its supporters apparently believe there is no problem.  What is escaping these self-styled new leaders of the  philosophic right is that the real engine of the economy in  North America is consumer spending. As the income of  the consumer was progressively cut in the 1930's the  depression progressively deepened.  Today in B.C. the fear instilled by the radical and misguided shenanigans of our provincial government has consumer confidence at an all-time low and the people of B.C.  are suffering as they have not suffered in the last half century.  Meanwhile, the Minister of Finance tours the province  listening to requests for tax cuts from the big corporations  with no guarantee given that the money that will be saved  will be invested in the province. The Socreds continue to  lead us along a tragic road.  Neighbourliness  needed  Government oh the local level is closer to home than the  politics of Victoria or Ottawa. Here we have the opportunity to voice our opinions and to watch the machinations  of council, committee and board. And it is here that we  can see the value of co-operation and consultation.  Not all of us hold the same opinions on every issue; having the room to disagree is a healthy sign in a society, but  to address the needs of everyone, we must co-operate and  learn the art of compromise.  The current boundary extension issue which has caused  a rift between the Gibsons council and the SCRD,  specifically Area E, illustrates this point.  It should be remembered that our neighbours, while  perhaps living under a different jurisdiction, are. still pur  neighbours. It we co-operate on a personal level we should  not neglect to do so in government.

In 1875 the steam  tug was purchased by Moody, Nelson & Company to tow for the  Moodyville Mills, located on the north shore of Burrard Inlet. She  carried passengers. She towed sailing ships and barges. She pulled  booms of logs, some from the Moodyville skidroad, which ended in  a chute on the shore of West Howe Sound. In. 1886 George Gibson  selected a clearing at this abandoned spot as a building site. The Etta  White carried the Gibson family to their new home, with their  household goods in tow on board a barge. Captain Sam Dawe commanded the historic tug for a time.

"i  Musings  John Burnside  Friends who remember  former Gibsons resident Barbara Williams will be pleased and  proud to note that Barbara is  starring in a multi-million dollar  movie which opened in Vancouver last week.  Barbara is the female lead in  Thief of Hearts and initial  reports, from family members,  is that she is very good in a good  movie.  Perhaps I can be forgiven for  a modest glow of pride in this  matter. Fourteen years ago I  was a high school teacher at  Elphinstone secondary. As part  of my teaching of Shakespeare's  plays 1 habitually staged scenes  with students as actors, largely  to remind them that what we  Salute to a star!  page was meant to be performed, not read and dissected.  When Barbara Williams was  in grade 11 she and Linda Guest  (now Mrs. Peter Reid) and Deb-  by Ashby performed one of the  witches' scenes from Macbeth  and absolutely amazed everyone  who saw the scene at a school  assembly. They were quite  simply fantastic.  1 suggested to Barbara that  she might consider acting as a  possible career alternative. She  had a walk-on part in the Driftwood Players production of  Jean Anouilh's Waltzi.of. the  Toreadors and, of course, did  well. Then I cast her in the  Elizabeth Taylor role in Tennessee Williams' Suddenly Last  Summer, our next production.  were dealing with on the printed  Ram b tings of a Rover  We performed that play at  the Vancouver Island Drama  Festival in 1972 and took, 1  think, five of the nine awards of  the festival including Best Actress which was won by Nest  Lewis, yes the same Nest, in the  role played in the movie by  Katharine Hepburn. Barbara  was runner-up for best actress.  Then we travelled to Dawson  Creek for the B.C. Finals and  this time it was Barbara who  took Best Actress in the province with Nest as runner-up..  Barbara's work in that production won her a bursary to attend  Langara on a drama course and  a.career was launched.  Many theatre goers will  remember Barbara's work with  Tahmahnous Theatre in the late  1970's. She starred in John  Gray's Eighteen Wheels among  many other vintage performances. A few years ago she left  for Toronto to continue her  career and now we see her as the  star in a big-budget Hollywood  film.  What makes the story  especially pleasing is that all  who knew Barbara will agree  that it couldn't happen to a  finer person. Her outstanding  beauty and intelligence were  matched by a compassionate  and sensitive (heart which  endeared her to people of all  ages and both sexes.  Good luck, Barbara. I am  proud to have been once upon a  time your teacher and your  friend.  Thoughts in and out of church  by Dee Cee  Thoughts in and out of Church  Before I even write the first  line I want it to be clearly  understood by anyone who  should chance to read it that  what I have to say is not a denial  of the existence of God, nor of  the right of any individual to  believe whatsoever he chooses  to believe in. That right is  undeniably his and, as long as  he doesn't seek to impose his  beliefs on me, is no concern of  mine and I want to be the first  to admit it.  It would be so easy to make  the statement that I hate the  church and all things ecclesiastical, but I have lived long  enough to know that hate is a  dangerous emotion to indulge  in. Its venom has the.habit of  returning and directing itself  upon the one who is doing the  hating and, like a corrosive  acid, will eventually eat away  and destroy the very vitals of  . the individual, while at the same  time leaving the intended recipient indifferent and, in all probability, unaffected by the furies  that are being hurled in his  direction.  So, for the time being  thrusting the word hate aside, I  will choose some milder verb  such as disapprove, dislike,  despise or, better still, detest, in  order to describe what I feel  towards the church and all  forms of organized religion.  My aversion to these institutions commenced at a very early  age when I was forced to attend  the Anglican church, it being  the choice of my devoted and, I  am certain, genuinely religious  mother. The youngest of a  brood of five, I dreaded the  thoughts of what lay ahead each  and every Sunday, the Lord's  Day, or Sabbath as she had a  habit of calling it. I practised  every trick I knew of to delay  the moment when I would have  to enter the portals of this so-  called "holy" edifice. I mislaid  the studs for my Eton collar,  put on mismatched socks and,  pn   infrequent   occasions,  deliberately blackened my face  and hands when it came time to  leave the house and commence  this pilgrimage to a cut-stone  shrine that had not then nor  ever since any meaning for me  I remember only too clearly  how, as a last resort, I used to  appeal to my father (a non-  church goer) to pronounce the  magic words that I didn't have  to go. "No," his answer was  always the same. "Go along if  only to please your mother, D.  When you get old enough to  think things out for yourself,  then you can make your own  decision ahd abide by it as you  see fit." However, to extenuate  him in some measure, I also  remember his telling me on one  occasion that it was his view  that a man didn't need a church  or a cathedral to say his prayers  in; that, if he had a need to  commune with God, he was certain that it could be done in the  middle of a ploughed field and  would produce the same results  as if the petition had been  presented in Canterbury  Cathedral, with the approval  and sanction of His Holiness  the Archbishop.  Be that as it may, inevitably it  all ended up the same way and I  found myself ensconced in the  third pew back - the front row  was reserved for the mayor and  his council accompanied, of  course, by their wives and  families, while the second housed the professionals, the doctors, dentists, lawyers, et al. The  service was long and dreary and  made more so by the general  practitioner, the Very Reverend  Canon C. He was a tall,  scrawny, cadaverous-looking  creature with a voice that shook  the rafters. ,While my dear  mother (may her soul rest in  peace) gazed up at him as if he  were God, I used to watch  fascinated as his prominent  adam's apple slid up and down  his shrivelled throat like a  demented yo-yo, while he  thundered out his pious  platitudes. There were other  distractions too. I pondered as  to why certain figures in the  stained-glass windows had  circles of light or haloes over  their heads while others, including this cantankerous  emissary of God ranting away  in the pulpit, were lacking this  illumination. There was also the  matter of why Doris Simmons,  a precocious and attractive-  looking teenager, kept crossing  and uncrossing her silken-clad  legs while gazing somewhat archly at me just across the aisle.  I am beginning to become  aware that up to now I haven't  said one damned word that I  had intended to at the start of  this article so, difficult as it may  be, I must hurriedly try to catch  up. My quarrel, if it could be so  termed, with the church is that  it has never delivered what it has  been preaching in all the years  of its existence. It has dangled  its lies and false promises like a  carrot before the donkeys, excuse me I meant sheep, that  comprise its' flock, but there is  not one shred of concrete  evidence to support its claims of  a future life or an eternal  reward for doing good, nor the  hell and damnation that awaits  one for the evils perpetrated in  one's life.

'���!;  Editor:  In making this appeal for  contributions to the Tools for  Peace program in aid of  Nicaragua I would venture to  stress the following.  The Sandinista government  of Nicaragua is the only government in Central America which  has popular support. To win  this type of government the people underwent terrible hardship  and horrendous loss of life. No  other government in Central  America is seriously addressing  the basic problems f>of hunger-^-  inequality, . ihadequte medical  care and education. The  Nicaraguans have made immense progress in these areas  even while under continuous at-  tack from CIA-backed  mercenaries and economic  blockade. The people of  Nicaragua no longer starve as  do many of their unfortunate  neighbours.  Leaving aside the critical matter of war and peace in Central  America there is the paramount  issue of starvation. Hundreds of  thousands are starving in that  region, not in spite of, but  because of foreign aid, mostly  Economic  views  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following letter was received for  publication.  The Directors, SCRD  Sechelt, B.C.  Just recently I heard some  disturbing news. It seems that  the "Economic Commission" is  asking the regional board for  $120,000."  When this so called  Economic Commission first got  its foot in the door, it seems to  me the proposal was for the  regional board to pay only 10  per cent (approximately $4,500)  of the budget for this big  bargain (?) which was supposed  to bring commerce to this area.  So far, there has been little if  anything accomplished by the  Commission. To carry it on is a t  'waste of time and the people's  money on a scheme which  doesn't have to-show accountability.  As far as I can make out the  only promoting that has been  done is to the regional board  and for the greater Vancouver  garbage to be brought to the  Sunshine Coast.  I strongly recommend that  the regional board realize its  losses and dump the Commission before it gets in too deep. If  there is any money to be thrown  around I suggest it be given to  the commerce or trade bureaus  who have proper business persons to promote this area for its  best interest - NOT FOR GARBAGE.

The consensus  would indicate that these coun-  , tries, with corrupt regimes would  be better left alone to allow their  oppressed peoples to rise up and  in their own way address the  problem of shocking inequality.  It is tragic that in a country  like Nicaragua where this has  taken place the people have  come under attack from the  United States. Neither protestations of anti-communism nor  the invocation of that piece of  monumental arrogance, the  Monroe Doctrine, alters the/act  that U.S. policy is on the side of  oppression in Central America.  To preserve the sovereignty,  of, and assist in the progress of .  Nicaragua it is imperative that  we render aid. In these difficult  economic times it is only too  easy, or convenient, to dismiss  the plight of Nicaraguans with  the   quotation   that   charity*  begins at home, but it is well to  consider that where the spirit of  equality is under seige, we also  are threatened.  The people of Nicaragua require the basic tools and equipment to build up their country;  they want to help themselves.

Ferries' efforts to serve the  Langdale run. At present the  Sunshine Coast is in the classic  conflict between systems and  service. As a result the Coast  has suffered from government  cutbacks, and a general pruning  of what is apparently considered surplus to a bare bones  service.  Full marks to the ferries for  the ability to move cars; failure  for being centre-focussed on  that ability.  In accomplishing  the movement of cars as quickly, as efficiently (?) and as  cheaply as possible, the system  has overlooked the original  reason for the ferry as a means  of transportation...the movement of people, (service).     ,  From April through August  of this year approximately  120,000 walk-on passengers  rode the Langdale/Horseshoe  Bay run, latterly in the open,  unprotected from the weather,  across a moving traffic flow,  from the inland extremity of the  terminal, a long, long way to  the ramp. Even drop-off and  pick-up passengers face the ig-".  nominy of a mid-terminal hike,  the point at which the restricted  Good work, Chuck  Editor:  Re: Title Deserved... "Chuck  Barnes did a fine job on the  grass-behind the post office last  week. Thanks Chuck. You  deserve to be named Creeker of  the Year..." Jeannie Parker's  Roberts Creek column, Coast  News, October 8, 1984.  I'll drink to that!  Service to the community  runs strongly in the Barnes  family. As many know it was  Chuck Barnes' father' A.J.  (Fred) Barnes who was an  original of the builders of the  Roberts Creek Community Hall  not to mention the very post office where grass now grows, but  not under Chuck's feet. I would  not want to guess how many  chimneys old Fred built around  the Sunshine Coast.  But back to Chuck.  Way back in the mid 1930's  young Chuck Barnes used to  crank up his old Model A Ford  open   touring   and   drive   the  seven miles to the one room  high school at Gibsons, along  with several damsels with the  will to learn.  As I recall, his sister Lillian,  Peggy Forrest (Mrs. Morgan),  Rita Husdon (Mrs. Walter  Peterson), Verna Taylor, and  Kathy Roberts, whoops,! nearly  forgot Vivian White (Mrs. Gordon Reeves), (of the originals),  rode in a cloud of dust regularly  with Chuck on the old  washboard gravelMdadi"  As the car was filled with all  that '''feminine beauty, the  stalwart males were not far  behind on their bicycles, namely, Bill Forrest, George Taylor,  and George Tait.  Our little one room high  school carried all grades from  nine to 12. In the mid 1930Y  students totalled about 35 in all  and were tutored by Stan  Trueman.  Dick Kennett  P.S. Ah! Those Husdon sisters!  nnr.  baggage service is available. On  the other hand, if you are driving a car onto the ferry you  essentially start at the ramp.  Why not reverse the parking  for both the general public, and  the employees, with that of the  existing waiting/loading area?  And while I am asking questions: What about the scheduling? Why not a modest gesture  of weekly or bi-weekly late sailings; and whenever an organized group of an established  number attend a function in the  city, or on the Coast, (the  Pope's visit)? Why hot a minor  concession to give a daily flow-  through to Nanaimo? Why not  a full shift at sea in the morning?  To me these are legitimate  concerns that warrant serious  consideration by both the ferry  corporation and those individuals and groups on the  Sunshine Coast who are directly  affected. What say you  frustrated commuters, you wet,  cold, bedraggled foot  passengers who may be looking  for a sixth quarter for parking  as you hobble on spavined  shank, toting your unacceptable  baggage?

The Honourable John Fraser  Minister of Fisheries & Oceans  Dear Sir:  At our council meeting on  Monday, October 15, 1984,  Gary Russel of the Fishermen's  Union reported on the tragic  and probably avoidable deaths  of four fishermen in Quatsino  Sound.  Because of inaccurate  weather forecasting, the  fishermen were caught in a  storm with winds up to 140  kilometres an hour. The four  fishermen, who were wearing  survival suits and were located  by rescue vessels, could not be  saved because the Coast Guard  lacked the ship that could carry  out a rescue in that kind of  weather.  We find it appalling that  fishermen have to rely on inadequate weather forecasting and  rescue facilities.  We ask that you place the  highest priority on providing  adequate rescue vessels and  reliable weather forecasting to  protect the lives of our fellow  workers, the fishermen.

I want nothing that the churches have to offer and I cannot  sincerely believe that the Bible is  God's inspired word*. I view it,  rather, as man's feeble and  rather pitiful attempt to try and  put into words what he would  like to believe and, ably assisted  and encouraged by the ecclesiastics of all breeds and  creeds, he will continue to do  so. It is so convenient to leave  the thinking to others and,  should man try to strip the veils  from Truth, he would probably  be horrified at what he saw and  would regret that he had ever  started on such a project.  In the meanwhile, I shall sit  on a log down on the beach,  smoke my pipe and ponder on  what life is all about. I happen  to believe that there is a  Supreme Being, a Cosmic  Force, or call It what you will,  behind all that goes on in this  wonderful world and, who  knows, perhaps one day or at  the very end the Truth of it all  will be revealed to me.

Johm, makes wooden duck  decoys iif his small amount of  spare time and was commissioned "by MacMillan-Blodel president Ray Smith," who is familiar  with John's work, to make 10  decoys using a new plywood  salvage . product called  Parallam.

They are  very excited about its  possibilities and in fact it is currently being used on the Expo  building site. There is currently  one pilot plant out on Annacis  Island but as the product takes  off there are bound to be more.  I wish John would leave one  of his Parallam ducks on  display at the credit union, bank  or shopping centre. The wood  looks so good I'd be pleased to  even have the walls or floors  done with it and in his carving  applications the product's grain  seems to take on the appearance  of a duck's feathers. Ahh, I can  hardly wait to begin carving!  PARK OPENING  This is the last week before  the official opening of the John  Daly Nature Park. Plans for the  ceremonies are complete and  the guest speaker list does not  only look impressive but interesting as well.  The main speaker will be Ron  MacLeod, former director of  the Pacific Office of the federal  department of fisheries and  oceans. Ron is often referred to  as the "father" of the Salmonid  Enhancement Program. Also in  attendance will be some  longtime personal;friends and  relatives of John Daly's.  The Pender Harbour Wildlife  Club has worked very hard to  have this opening turn out  skookum. However, if it rains  just roll with the punch and bring your umbrellas,' oilskins,  etc. If you think you might want  to sit, then bring your own  foldingchair.  Parking, will be available at  the old hydro yard (Wilf  Harper's) across from the entrance to Roosens Farm. Please  don't block the road as  everyone must know what a  dangerous corner that is.  I can't think of a more fitting  time for our new park to be  dedicated. The salmon are run  ning up-stream and they're a  real sight to behold right now.  Absolutely EVERYONE is  invited to this opening and also  to the potluck supper afterwards (which will be held at  Lions Park). Bring a dish, and  your family and enjoy the day  the way John Daly would have.  You can be sure he'll be there in  spirit. See you next Saturday at  2 p.m. For last minute information call Iris at 883-2434, Pam  at 883-9308 or Edith Daly at  883-2472.  VOLLEYBALL  Co-ed volleyball will be held  Wednesday nights at the high  school! I'm sure glad about that  as it's way more fun playing in  mixed teams. Turn out time is  7:30 to 9:30 p.m. For more information call Lorna Edward-  son at 883-9058 and remember  . not to wear black-soled runners.  29-HAND , '  A once in a lifetime for Glen-  nys Davies our health clinic  receptionist.

Crib  night is each Wednesday at 8  p.m.  GOLF  Two notes from the golf  society. A progress meeting will  be held on Sunday, November 4  in the Community Hall at 1  p.m. Everyone is invited to  come.  There will be no more  firewood cutting until further  notice. Though many folks have  taken advantage of the offer  and paid their $10, still others  have moved in, taken down  evergreens (which were to have  been left) and went on their way  without paying. Too bad. ������*  FIRE NEWS  What's this about our two  local firemen Willie Mattis and  Steve Boyd looking for  Christmas carollers? Hmmm,  very nice but not too '  likely...And speaking of  firemen and such, a big thank  you to all who came to the  Firemen's Ball.  Also regrets that Art -Alexander's house fire was so  devastating and I hope all problems will iron out quickly.  Who knows when something  odd will happen so do a few  things for your own and your  family's safety: a) Buy smoke  alarms for your house and  garage; b) Buy a fire extinguisher and teach everyone  how to use it; c) Get your  chimney cleaned and inspected.  If you every have any questions, do not hesitate to phone  your chiefs or assistant chiefs.  In Madeira Park there's Willie  Mattis and Steve Boyd (the  choir boys!) and in Garden Bay  there's Bob Fielding and Gerry  Chappell.  by Ann Cook 883-9J67  SCHOOL-NEWS ,^#'; ^m~:-  The annual meeting of the  Egmont -Community School  Society' will be held this Thursday, 7 p.m. at the school.  As an Egmont resident you  can belong to the society if you  wish to. Some people are under  the impression that only parents  of school children can attend.  Not so! Our little school is a  community school. If you attend a continuing education  class (fitness for one) ��� watch  satellite TV at the school or use  the tennis court you are part of  community school activities. ''  Do come, it will do your  heart good to see how much we  use and appreciate our community school, and appreciate  and use the children's teacher'  Mr. Fearn, who is the wearer of  many hats like teacher, prin-  cipal, president, referee,  counsellor and timekeeper.  Two of the children call him  Dad, except between 9 a.m. and  3 p.m. they call him Mr. Fearn,  can you imagine getting to work  each day and finding your  children there. Ron copes quite  well, I think it's because he likes  people and living in Egmont.  Thursday evening 8 p.m. at  the school is the time and place  for a Ron Fearn appreciation  party. You are invited, especially ex-students.  WHYTE FEATHER COMES  TO TOWN  There will be a new sound in  town for the Hallowe'en dance  on Friday, October 26.

If they all should  show up at one meeting we  would have to chop holes in the  walls. This is (he big reason we  are anxious to bring our  building program to fruition.  We were fortunate to have a  visit from our member of  parliament, Ray Skelly on October 16. He examined our present hall and visited the site of  the new hall, examined our proposed plans and asked many  penetrating questions about our  programs and expressed himself  as highly impressed with what  we have accomplished and with  our proposals for the future. He  will keep in touch with us so  that he is fully advised of our  progress.  By the time this is in print we  will have had our second con:  cert but don't despair if you  missed #2 because we are having  a third one on October 27. All  '.hese with good talent, all in our  hall, all at 8 p.m. and all helping  achieve that new hall.  Make a note to attend the  Works superintendent, Gorr  don Dixon, responded to the  brief and to the questions put  forward by the delegation by  showing a balance sheet, and  explaining where labour costs  and increased hydro costs have  brought about large increases in  cost to the users. Provincial  government standards are  tighter every year, requiring  more and more stringent checking and one of the prime  reasons the system was taken  over, according to Director  McRae, was to ensure public  health standards within the  system and in surrounding  areas.  After much lively discussion  it became clear that the SCRD  feels itself bound by the provincial government which, said  Director John Burnside, "urges  the district to take over certain  services while on the other hand  makes it impossible to do a decent job".  It was agreed by the board to  proceed to have drawn up a  tender for operating and maintaining the Lynwood and  Creekside systems in consultation with the proper technical  experts.  Plant Sale to be held in our hall  on October 27. There will be  goodies as well as plants. There  will even be some of the newest  projects of the craft group.  Don't forget our various activities, 5-pin bowling, crib, and  whist on the first and third  Tuesdays of each month arid  aggravation on the second and  fourth Tuesdays. Exercises  every Monday morning have  become more and more  popular.  Make a note on your calendar for the Hard Times Dance  to be held November 3.  There is room for more  people at the Monday morning  carving classes. I'd like to go  myself but I have to have a day  in the week for washing.  We held our monthly Shop-  Easy draw with the following  members being fortunate this  month. Absent: Rose. Dalgren,  May Garnet, William Stewart,  Mary Miller and Jim Wilkinson. Present: F.

In the. old days, all the action took  place on a busy mill floor. Now, in pulp  and paper mills across Canada, decisions  are made by skilled operators in tidy  control rooms.  Computer technology - just one of the  changes sweeping Canada's pulp and  parjerfindustry as it responds to the  challenge of competition.  With computers, we can plan how a  forest area should be managed over the  next 20 years and beyond. Wecalculate  forest inventories, draw maps, identify  road locations and engineering requirements/ Computers contribute to fire  prevention and suppression, and help  us select silviculturai treatments to keep  the forest healthy and productive.  In the mills, computers and electronic  sensors monitor every step of the  manufacuiring process and make instant  adjustments for maximum efficiency and  quality control.  ' In the hands of an experienced work  force, computer technology helps make  our industry more productive while  improving our competitive position in  world markets.  Silicon chips are the new tool for  turning wood chips into dollars, helping  to strengthen the competitive position of  Canada's leading industry and protecting  the jobs that come from the forest.

In this connection she also does conservation framing, and needlework stretching and framing. As she says, if you spend up to  150 hours, for instance, on a fine piece of needlework, it deserves to be properly mounted/  She had on display a variety of original fine art works, and solicits for exhibit and sale the work of local artists.

"On one level the play, by  Patrick Hamilton, is a fullblown melodrama with a  heroine in distress, a blackhearted villain and a hero who  barely saves the day; on another  level it is a pure psychological  thriller in which a woman is  skillfully driven insane by her  greedy, calculating husband.  On yet another level it is a gem  of Victoriana, set in London,  England, in the era when  gaslight was still in use and men  were to be respected simply  because they were male."  In the cast are some actors  who are familiar to theatregoers on the Coast, as well.as  some new faces. Cast members  include Mary Livingston, Leigh  W.

Richmond speaks  from more than 50 years experience as a forest entomologist for the : Canadian  government- and the forest industry.' ." ';'���,������ ������..;,.; X.yX  "I once belieyeid Uiat...applied control should be undertaken... upon the first indication  of an increase in the population  of a potentially dangerous insect," he writes, but it was  repeatedly demonstrated to him  that no matter how efficient  Man's spray programs, Nature  herself is more effective.  Most of the so-called insect  "pests" have usually existed in  the forests as long as the forests  themselves, and they are as  much a part of it as the trees,  maintained there by a vast,  delicately balanced network of  interdependent organisms.  These "pests" go un-noticed by  man until natural circumstances  allow them to increase  dramatically. Spray programs  affect not only the offending insects but the whole network of  organisms, thereby causing new  problems in the forest.  And  since no spray can entirely  eradicate a species, it also fails  to resolve the original problem.  When the surviving pests begin  their next reproductive cycle,  the very organisms which  Nature wouldd have advanced  to prey on them and restore the  balance are not available.  While Forever Green is  recommended reading for  anyone who wants to know the  real case against the use-'of'  chemicals in bur forest, it is also  delightful reading for those who  enjoy well-told yarns about the  outdoors. Richmond has done  forest surveys in the Rockies,  the prairies, Quebec, the Queen  Charlottes, Tweedsmuir Park  and almost every other place a  tree grows in this country short  of the Maritimes. He and his  good lady have met up with  bears, wolves, cougars, porcupines, and an army of mice,  and Richmond tells about it all  with humour and style.  Our one small complaint here  is that a little tighter editing  could have eliminated some of  the repeated explanations of  background material. But this is  only a minor fault. Forever  Green is a welcome addition to  B.C.'s outdoor and environmental literature.  Forever Green by Hector  Allan Richmond, Oolichan  Books.

Springsteen,  a  36-year  old-  film at  Centre  On Tuesday, October 30 the  Arts Centre present the 1945  French masterpiece, Les En-  fcints du Paradis/Children of  Paradise;  This magnificent film by"\  Marcel Came and Jacques  Prevert is an accomplishment of  perfection for the French  cinema and, in its three hours,  there is the feel and breadth of a  great novel. It has been described as, 'an aesthetic soliloquy on  the relations of art and life-'  The chief styles of the romantic period���the fairground  show, the melodrama, the comic parody, the dramatic mime,  and the Shakespearian tragedy,  each appear in turn.  The film is a joy from beginning to end and if you plan to  see only one film this year then  by all means treat yourself to  "Les Enfantsdu Paradis". It's  at the Arts Centre on Tuesday,  October 30 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets  cost, adults $3.50, seniors and  students $2.50.  Juried  Art  Show  It's that time of year again at  the Arts Centre, Sechelt, when  aspiring artists bring their work  in to be judged, criticized and,  hopefully, ��hung in the Sixth  Sunshine Coast Annual Juried  Art Exhibition.  Gordon Smith, one of  Canada's leading artists and an  excellent teacher besides, is  juror this year and giving critiques of all the work submitted.  '  On Wednesday, October 24  the exhibition will be open to  the public and on Sunday, October 28 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.  there will be a tea and reception  for the artists, their friends and  the general public if they would  like to come.  native of New Jersey, does not  resort to gimmickery that is so  prevalent among rock acts today. Instead, he delivers himself  and the down-to-earth realities  of pain, pleasure and passion,  recounting many personal experiences that put us directly in  touch with our own.  He respects his audience and  they like-wise respect him.  When hundreds of fans  flocked to the stage he requested they return to their seats  w.for safety ^sake. and, .patiently  waited until all had done as they  were told. His no-nonsense approach of taking charge is undoubtedly the reason why he's  call "The Boss".

There'll be a repeat performance October 27.  l:  At the Arts Centre  ���Dianne Kvans pholo  ft  tv  <*  Working writers visit  The Vancouver Industrial  Writers Union (VIWU) will  have five of its members reading  at the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre on October 26, at 8 p.m.  Formed five years ago,  VIWU was the brain-child of  Tom Wayrrian; the idea was to  provide a support group for  people who wrote work poetry.  During its existence people of  varied interests and occupations  have participated in the group.  The group has been invited to a  number of readings including  several in San Francisco. Pulp  Press will release an anthology  of VIWU's work in spring 1985.  The group is very loose in  structure. It does not have officers nor are meetings run on  traditional lines. VIWU is held  together through each individual's commitment and enthusiasm. A high degree of cooperation and mutual respect  has maintained the group over  the years.  Tom Wayman is perhaps the  best known of the members. He  is dedicated to the idea that  literature is found in and should  come from the work place, a  thesis he has developed in a recent book Inside Job. He has  edited three anthologies of  poetry premised around the idea  of literature in the work place.  He has had numerous books of  his own published.  Zoe Landale is a local writer,  who joined up with VIWU  when she was a resident of Vancouver. Her first book, Harvest  of Salmon is an account of her  years in the West Coast fishing  industry. She has also had  poetry published in a number of  magazines.  Kirsten Emmott is a Vancouver family physician. She  has two children and a busy  practice. She has taken an active  part in the group's readings  from its beginning. A number  of her poems have appeared in  literary publications.  Glen Downie is a newcomer  to the group. A social worker,  his poems display a concern for  human dignity.  Calvin Wharton is a recent  graduate of the Kootney School  of Writing. He . is currently  working at Pulp Press.  Admission is free.  Sechelt Garden Club  by Jack MacLeod  The October meeting of the  Sechelt Garden Club was addressed by Mr. David Hunter  who is well known in the lower  mainland through his nurseries  and retail outlets. He is now a  resident of the Sunshine Coast.  Quite expectantly, the club  members and visitors were  ���prepared ���-to \ gain more  knowledge regarding garden  chores tp be dbne.at this time of  year. The rewards for paying attention to these late of season  garden jobs will show up in the  spring of next year.  Leaves are falling now and if  not raked up will present a  messy picture.

Annual flowers such as  salvia, snapdragons, pansies,  etc., have gained in popularity  over the years due to their striking colour and availability at the  plant shops. One can grow these  annuals from seeds and thus  save some money and give you a  good feeling of satisfaction.  But they must go by the way  of the shovel now and find a  place in the compost pile where  they will continue to do good  for you.   ., ��r      s-  Where you have dug up the  soil in the flower and vegetable  patches some fertilizer must be  restore to that area. It may be  some organic materials such as  animal waste, above mentioned  compost, sawdust, lime, etc.  Lacking these the gardener  may purchase some fertilizers  found in a box at the garden  shop such as osmocote,  20-20-20, lime, etc. Natural  substances as mentioned above,  or boxed chemical fertilizers will  do your garden so much, in the  way of enrichment.  Mr. Hunter mentioned the  necessity of some pruning at  this time and used a few examples such as the standard  rose.

"Canada has in fact the same  basic social problems as  Nicaragua, Guatemala, and  Peru," said Roberts. "In this  country too, we are finding that  the poorest among us are having  their spirits crushed by  poverty."  Roberts quoted NDP leader  Bob Skelly, 'a man I admire', as  saying: "It is the design of the  present provincial government  to instil fear in the people of this  province."  "The mainstream churches"  reiterated Roberts, "are beginning to recognize what we have  done. The representatives of the  church in the Third World are  telling us that the First World,  or the West, has committed the  most heinous genocide the  world has ever known. We have  not only killed people but  cultures and languages in the  name of God. We are recognizing that we have done this even  in Canada. It is only a few years  ago that Indian children in  residential schools could be  beaten for speaking the Indian  tongue.  "What the Third World  religious leaders are telling us is  that the near destruction of  peoples, languages, and cultures  has taken place with the Christian church acting as accomplice."  Roberts said that action for  social justice is necessary to  restore 'the dignity of all  peoples'. He pointed to the  work of the Salvation Army to  illustrate his point.  "I am an admirer of the work  done by the Salvation Army in  cleaning up, or attempting to,  the social mess left by the institutionalized violence of  poverty. But they do not question the causes of that mess.  The, mainstream churches are  beginning to do that."  Drop off your  COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIEDS    r-  ���;'������"���    a\       .

Lief Mjanes may  take a pat on the back for his:  hard work in organizing a much  needed fourth division side.  Since the beginning of the fall  season rugby interest has  ballooned on our coast, leaving  a multitude of extra players to  the third division side. Fortunately Red Lions of the Vancouver fourth division have  pulled out because of a lack of  players, leaving the hole for a  second team from Gibsons.  The Vancouver Scribes'  fourth division side, who are  presently in first place in the  division, narrowly won a 3-0 introduction to our new side. Gibsons showed the locals that  they're here to stay with a  young and old side. The mixture  will definitely help for a strong  future. Good work, Piggies!  The Pigs (or Gibsons third  division) continued to hammer  the opposition. Visiting Ex Brits  from Vancouver's east side fell  On the rocks  20-0 in a chippy hard-hitting  game.  First half action saw inside  centre Steve Almond burst  through the gap, deking his way  in a 35 yard rushing try. Dave  Rainer converted.  Approximately halfv way  through the first half the game  came to an unpleasant halt  whei- scrum half Ken Miles  went out with a separated  shoulder. A big blow to the  Gibsons side. Dave Rainer filled  in and play continued.  The second try of the half  came off a peeling loose ruck  with eighth man Weepy Pearce  breaking away on his own for  another very exciting piece of  running. For a 240 pounder he  can sure bull his way down a  field with a lot of speed: Dave  Rainer converted.  Second half play continued  on the chippy side but Gibsons  contained themselves and  scored twice again. Brian Scarr  picked up a loose ball on the  Brit 30 yard line and grub kicked through. The Brits could not  keep hold of the rolling ball and  as it bounced into the end zone  Scarr pounced on it for the try.  Later, winger Brian Lymer  repeated a similar play Marid  hooker Bobby Dixon finished it  off by beating the withdrawing  Brits.  The Pigs are on a roll!

Firemen  and  parking  As a result of a request from  the Sechelt Volunteer Fire  Department, Sechelt council has  declared a fire zone on Mermaid  Street, and no parking is allowed at any time on Mermaid  from Trail Avenue west for 125  feet. Firemen were finding it  especially difficult to find parking space for their own vehicles  if called to a fire on Sundays.  Alderman Graham Craig  solicited councillors for information to include in a newsletter for residents hoped to be  available November 1 at the  village office. "I would like to  devise a system of better communications with taxpayers  concerning matters of the  operation of the village which  don't usually appear in the  press," he said. "The intention  of the newsletter is to bring to  the attention of taxpayers things  they should know regarding the  day-to-day, routine affairs of  the village." Craig hopes to  continue the newsletter on a  monthly basis as long as interest  seems to warrant it.  In other business, Public  Works committee chairman  Craig was appointed as  Sechelt's representative on a  steering committee being formed by the SCRD to study a  waste management plan for  both sewage treatment and garbage disposal for the Sunshine  Coast.

Vince Bracewell, president of  the 136-member Sechelt Marsh  Protective Society, petitioned  Sechelt council last week with  regards to its recent announcements that it wanted the  two beaver residents in the  Sechelt marsh removed and  their dam in a drainage ditch  again destroyed, alleging this  dam was causing flooding of  residences in the village.  Bracewell offered council information "to establish that the  marsh and its beavers are not  contributing to the flooding",  based on a report by Roy  Engineering. The report stated  that, "the beaver da*m is not  causing any back-up of water  which could flood any residence  in Sechelt", and attributed the  problem to the facts that the af-  Mayor asks Vedo's aid  by Fran Burnside  Economic development commissioner Oddvin Vedo has  received a new assignment from  members of the Economic  Development Commission.  In response to a request made  by Gibsons mayor Larry  Labonte at the commission's  meeting October 15, Vedo will  now actively seek investors to  finance the hotel complex at the  new Gibsons Marina.  "If no investors come forward in the next two months,  there won't be enough time to  build a hotel in time for Expo,"  stated Labonte. He noted that  the proposed $9 million project  would provide 77 man-years of  work and the equivalent of 55  full-time permanent jobs for  local people, and would give the  whole Sunshine Coast a major  economic boost.  Commission member Don  Hoops supported Labonte's request. "The Sunshine Coast  and particularly Gibsons needs  this," he said. "Gibsons is the  gateway to the Coast and we  need something attractive right  here. Right now there's not one  facility for meetings and conventions."  Vedo noted that, if there were  a convention centre here, he  would try to tie it in with Expo  bookings for conventions which  will be held during the run of  the six month fair. "And  beyond '86 we have an excellent  location for the meeting and,  convention trade," he said,  noting the short 35-minute  travel time from downtown  Vancouver by the anticipated  Hovermarine   service.  Hoop's motion that Vedo  "commit a fair portion of his  time to this project" was  unanimously carried by the  commission.  fected dwellings are at the low  elevation in the village; flow in  the storm drain pipe is probably  inhibited by sand flowing in  through catch basins; open ditches are plugged with vegetation.  Bracewell noted that the dam  creates a maximum water depth  of 30 inches, and if the water  gets that high it flows into  another ditch and back into the  marsh. Flooding caused by the  dam would occur in the area of  the Arts Centre, not in the problem area. He also noted that at  extreme high tides, sea water  flows back the other way over  the dam.  An engineering report of  several years ago had proposed  a weir in the drainage ditch to  prevent the problem of silt  build-up, and Bracewell suggested that the beaver dam has  been providing this service to  the village at no cost. He added  that the beavers, whose home is  on an island in the marsh, reside  in a protected area, and their  dam, even though outside the  marsh, is afforded a certain  amount of protection under the  Wildlife Act if no damage is being done to property.  Alderman Harvey Bist was of  the opinion that the report of  specialists  should  be  heeded.  Alderman Ken Short felt that  council's obligation was to keep  drainage ditches clear of  anything, beaver dams not excepted.  Council decided to hold off  moving the beavers for the time  being.

Coast News, October 22 1984  WMmn&rXB  by Jeanie Parker, 886-3973  ~The   theft   of  the   Roberts  Creek fire truck really shocked  people and the main topic at last  week's Community Association  meeting was what the community could do to prevent such acts  of violence. It was decided to  make  that  the, subject  of a  forum at next month's meeting,  with invitations to other groups  in the community to come and  brainstorm with positive ideas.  Regional   director   Brett  McGillivray   mentioned   the  public   hearing   about   the  amendments to the new zoning  by-law. This is mainly a formality as changes were made in  response to the expressed wishes  of the people at the last hearings  but if you're interested the hearing is tonight, October 22, at 7  p.m. at the Community Hall.  Brett reported that an  outhouse and garbage bin for  the mouth of the creek would  have to wait until the regional  district owns the property,  which should be soon. And if  people would prefer to have a  public boat ramp at the picnic  site on Flume Road rather than  the mouth of the creek because  of parking problems and interference with the fish spawning grounds, they will have an  opportunity to speak at public  hearings on the matter.        <  EXTENDED HALLOWE'EN  Hallowe'en celebrations will  be extended over two weeks in  Roberts Creek. There's a play, a  dance, a kids' party, and  fireworks.  First there's the Suncoast  Players production of the  melodrama "Gaslight" this  Thursday, Friday and Saturday,  October 25 to 27,- at the Community Hall. Tickets are $4 at  Seaview Market.  Then there's the dance at the  Legion   with   "Used   Guys"  Did you say "Bring home the bacon?" These friendly fellows were  lunching along Lower Road in Roberts Creek last week, providing  a little rototilling and fertilizer service at the same time.  ���Jane McOuat pholo  Church  Services  THE UNITED CHURCH  OF CANADA  Sunday Worship Services  ST.

And the library continues to  serve the community under the  guidance of the present  librarian, Bernadette Buhrkall  in its quarters in the former  health centre on South Fletcher.  "1 have much appreciated the  pin that the town council gave  me in recognition of my service  as their librarian,"'says Mrs.  Rorke. "And I think'the pin  was the first new town of Gibsons pin to be given out."  Mrs. Rorke proudly recollects  that in the move from their ,  location in the village hall to;'tAe*" "  present site not a day was miss-;'  ed being open to the public.  In-her time as librarian she  saw a number of developments  such as a rotating supply of  large print books and books in  French and German from the  provincial government; the  processing of the large Port  Mellon library which was turned over to Gibsons; and the fitting of plastic covers to books  change from hand work to  machine.  "My background is that of  an elementary teacher in Ker-  risdale elementary in Vancouver, and not that of  librarian. When the catalogue  changed to the Dewey system, I  found that an arduous task indeed. Certainly the librarian  puts in long hours in the purchasing of books and processing  them. But I enjoyed every  minute of years that I was  librarian."  "I particularly remember the  time our library was the setting  for a Beachcombers episode.  An actress did the speaking part  of the librarian, of course, but 1  Police  news  GIBSONS RCMP  On October 13 a Ford pickup  belonging to a Cochrane Road  resident was reported stolen.

Three  municipal and provincial licence  plates were reported stolen from  vehicles belonging to Coast  Taxi.  A report was received, also  on the thirteenth, that the Saan  Store at the Sunnycrest Mall  had been broken into and  entered. Stereo equipment  valued at $300 was taken.

New name for Centre  Elders prefer  Aldersprings  by Jim McDowell  How would you feel, as a  senior citizen with limited  physical abilities, if your weekly  social event was spent at the  Adult Daycare Centre?  Regular participants at two  local seniors' activity centres  run by Community Services  recently complained loudly  enough about the name to get it  changed. "They said it sounded  like a babysitting service," says  co-ordinator Cathy Gardiner,  "a place you go when you can't  dp things for yourself  anymore."  iGardiner claims many prospective clients, who seemed enthusiastic   about   joining   ac-  Skookum  Mark Guignard says...

So she launched a contest,  challenging the Gibsons and  Sechelt groups to propose a .better name for the two centres.  Names like "Golden  Summit" and "Swinging  Seniors" gained lots of support  but failed to get overwhelming  approval. As interest in the contest waned, the staff decided to  settle the issue by by dubbing  both centres "Eldersprings".  "The reaction came loud and  strong," recalls Gardiner. "As  soon as we used the new name,  the seniors pointed out they had  no desire to be associated with  anything 'old'."  As the dispute raged,  someone noticed that a minor  change in the word "elder" produced the name of a native tree.  That led to "Aldersprings",  and it stuck.  Continued from page 1  board of a series of four recommendations found in both the  Jawanda and the Johnstone-  Buchan reports.  Recommendation 1 says that  there should be no boundary extension pending the completion  of the official community plan  for the town of Gibsons and  Elphinstone and West Howe  Sound official settlement plans,  with a set time limit for the  completion. of these plans. It  points out, as Planner Buchan  did when raising this issue, that  there is sufficient developable  land within the town boundaries  to accommodate urban expansion for some time to come.  Recommendation 2 is a long  term alternative, and would require further study respecting  land use, servicing provisions,  cost implications and possible  restructuring involved in boundary extension.  Recommendation 3 would  extend the boundary on a  "block by block" basis, rather  than a "lot by lot" basis, and  would be subject to the assent  of 60 per cent of the property  owners within the area, and  careful examination by the  municipal and regional district  staff.  Recommendation 4 would  extend the boundary to include  a lot or small piece of land  which is clearly and abundantly  justifiable from land use planning, servicing and cost point of  view, such as Block 6, the  Childs/Mitten piece which has  been accepted by the town.  The recommendation to accept the above was defeated in a  vote, which left Director  Gurney extremely frustrated.  In a telephone conversation  the following day he explained  what it was he had hoped to  achieve by having these four  recommendations accepted.  "I think the answer lies with  those four recommendations in  that report, but with qualifications on Recommendation 4.  There's plenty of leeway within  Recommendations 1 and 4, it  gives the procedure to deal with  individual applications. But I  .will make a notice of motion  next week to the board to accept  the recommendations and to  amend Recommendation 4 to  read as it does, but followed by  'subject to Recommendation 1,  and subject to consultation and  agreement between council and  regional board'."  This means that acceptance  of properties within the boundary could take place were they  to make good planning sense,  but not until the settlement  plans for the area are completed.  Although there are a vast  number of people in Area E opposed to any expansion by the  town, Director Gurney said "I  have to represent the people  who want to join the town as  well as those who don't."  He sees the acceptance of  mutually agreeable guidelines as  part of the solution; "If both  sides live by the ground rules it  should remove the politics from  the situation."  He suggested too that a letter  from the Gibsons council to the  SCRD concerning new proposals which would affect outlying areas would go a long way  to avoiding hostility.

Gibsons Planner Rob Buchan  introduced a new proposal at.  the October 10 planning committee meeting in which was  recommended the inclusion of  three properties within the  boundaries of the town. It also  recommended that consideration of any further applications  be conducted bi-annually, that  two-thirds of the residents in  any large block be in favour of  inclusion, and that none of the  acceptances be of any cost to  the town.  The three properties accepted  for inclusion were selected from  15 applications, many of which  have been on the books for up  to two years. The properties are  the Copping, Johnson, and  Childs/Mitten parcels; the  former two were accepted in  order to rationalize the present  boundary, the latter for what  Planner Buchan calls "sound  planning reasons". The piece,  25 acres, lies adjacent to  another 50 acres owned by the  same person; this piece lies  within the town, leading to a  difficult situation for the owner,  the town and the regional  district.  SECHELT SENIORS  PLANT SALE  Saturday,  October 27  at 11:30 a.m.  AT THE SENIOR CITIZENS HALL  ON MERMAID ST., NEAR THE VILLAGE HALL  ��� Part of the present controversy arises from the attempt to  formulate an acceptable policy  for expansion; the Jawanda  report on boundary extension  came about primarily because  the ministry of municipal affairs  was jinhappy Myith the piecemeal approach to expansion used by the town. However, according to Planner Buchan, the  report merely re-defined the  problem while offering no feasi-'  ble solutions. Its reception was  unenthusiastic.  Because of this, Planner  Buchan joined the District Planner Jim Johnstone to draw up  the Johnstone-Buchan report,  hoping, in Planner Buchan's  words, "to find solutions rather  than to define the problem  again".  Reception of this report was  hike-warm, and in some areas,  hostile. Residents of Area E  presented a petition showing a  vast majority of those residents  to be opposed to any expansion  at all.  The town of Gibsons, at the  March 19 planning committee  meeting, took the report under  advisement, recommending that  it be accepted and that discussion continue between the  SCRD and the town, but no  formal motion to adopt the  policies within it was ever made.  The issue then dropped from  sight until the recent planning  committee meeting, where Planner Buchan raised it in order to  clear the books and make some  decisions concerning the long-  waiting applicants. He feels his  proposal is an attempt to find a  reasonable solution to the question.  "Where do we go from here?  Either back to the status quo  (piece-meal expansion) which  makes nobody happy, least of  all me, or try to marry the rights  of the people who want in, with  some kind of logical criteria."  As for objections raised concerning the water pressure on  the Copping property, Planner  Buchan has consulted Ron  Webber, works superintendent,  who assures him that it is adequate. The Childs/Mitten property poses some problems;  Planner Buchan has stated that  the first requirement before any  development ...plans.. can..,-.be.  started, will be a thorough geo-  techriical report on the entire 75  acre parcel, including the area  of Gospel Rock* which Planner  Buchan would like to see left as  parkland. \  "There is a far better chance  of getting an environmentally  sensitive development of the entire property if it is under one  jurisdiction," he said.  As for drainage problems inherent in the property, Planner  Buchan sees development coming some time down the line,  when the town of Gibsons new  sewage plant will be operating,  and the development will be using that facility.  Although, as Alderman  Edney said at the October 16  council meeting, "This is the  town's business," it was agreed  by council that it is desirable to  co-operate with the regional  district on as broad a front as  possible.

The laws relating to  drugs and the enforcement of  those laws will be discussed, so  will the types of drugs found in  our area. We will also write  about the signs and the results  of drug abuse.  Drugs have been around for a  long time and will continue to  be with us for a long time yet.  But is it a problem in Our  Town? Let's look at the facts.  Drugs are bought, sold and  used every day by most age  groups in Our Town. Recent information points sadly to the  fact that drugs have reached  elementary school levels. Locally available statistics show that  last year 56 charges were laid  for possession of a narcotic as  compared to 35 the year before.  Those numbers represent only a tiny fraction of the amount  of drugs and users in Our  Town. Drug laws are extremely  difficult to enforce. This  responsibility is left in the hands  of our local Dolice force, the  Police  news  Continued from page 14  SECHELT RCMP  Ken Lindstrom has been  charged with speeding following  a motor vehicle accident which  occurred in Pender Harbour on  October 14. Lindstrom lost control of his car and ended up in  the ditch. A passenger in the car  was taken to the hospital for  treatment of head and facial injuries. The car sustained $3,000  worth of damages.  On October 14, a fire believed to be electrical in origin completely destroyed a house  belonging to Art Alexander  RCMP, whose members are  very well known in the community. The fact that they are  easily recognized makes enforcement of drug laws that  much more difficult. Most drug  seizures done in Our Town are  the result of routine checks by  police and from response to  complaints and/or information  received from the public by the  RCMP. Response and cooperation with members of the  community is essential for a better enforcement of drug laws in  Our Town.  We are governed by the Narcotic Control Act. Offences  range from simple possession,  possession for the purpose of  trafficking, trafficking (an actual drug or an imitation of a  drug), importing (into Canada)  and cultivation. Penalties range  from a $1,000 fine or six months in jail to seven years in jail  for a maximum sentence.  Next week, we will list the  drugs most commonly used in  Our Town, their descriptions  and the effect those drugs have  on those who use them.  As usual, we welcome your  letters. They need not be signed  if you wish to remain  anonymous.
