 pGlSLATJVE LIBRARY  pMllament Buildings  tflGTDRiA, B.C.  V0V1X4  85.4  by John Burnside  Provincial opposition leader  ; Bob Skelly addressed a fund-  ' raising meeting'-on behalf of the  ' NDP in .this constituency last  - Saturday night in Greene Court  Hall in Sechelt. Close to 100  party supporters were in attendance.  Skelly took issue with the  often-repeated claim .that Conservatives federally and Socreds  provincially are good managers.  He pointed to the fact that  only two federal Conservative  governments in this century,  elected with a majority, were  swept into office promising to,  manage   the   economy   better  than the Liberals had been doing. In both cases, the governments of R.B. Bennett in the  1930's and John Diefenbaker in  the late 1950*s and early l960's,  the Conservative rnajoritV had  faded away after only one term  in office, largely, 'according to  Skelly, through theirinability to  manage the economy.  Provincially, Skelly said:  "What the Socreds are doing to  us is an insult to the people of  British Columbia."  He pointed out that when the  NDP was defeated during a  recession in 1975, a recession  caused by skyrocketing OPEC  oil prices and the economic  downturn which followed on  ���j* ���-.  **-."���?*&  '-���"��� ���""�����    ���  v-.t�� '     ����� ���  .- fr*��f  s& ���- - 4m*  i'UiIihS,     ',Z..Mrpr��i     '"/�� >',!',.-'ir': f.iu'hAlmSkarillim ���< i     .i- w  ��� '      ,     ,+w     -'^'S/(S^fi''ltS^C'(  Left to right,  Bruce Woodsworth, Tom Deslauriers and Brett  McGillivray give esy to NDP leader B$b Skelly in Sechelt last Saturday.  ... . i ' *  the conclusion of the war in  Vietnam, there were 94,000 people unemployed.  "Ninety-four thousands  unemployed and the Socreds  were hollering across the floor  of the legislature," said Skelly.  "Today there are 214,000 out of  work and 120,000 have gone off  the employment rolls, that's one  person every 39 minutes. There  are young people today who  have no prospect of working in  their lifetimes."  The provincial NDP leader  said that in 1975 the NDP was  accused of shovelling money off  the back of a truck for the  unemployed and- welfare recipients. He pointed out that the  number of people on welfare  had risen from 180,000 in 1981  to 215,000 in 1984.      -  "That's an increase of 95,000  in three years. Another person  is going on welfare in this province every 16 minutes, 24 hours  a day, 365 days a year. That is  the Socred record of  mismanagement," charged  Skelly.  Pointing to the fact that small  business in Canada had. been  shown to be the creator of new  jobs, the larger corporations actually cutting back in job creation due to automation, Skelly  noted that the rate* of small  business failure in the province  was the highest in Canada.  "One thousand and fifty two  businesses went into bankruptcy  in the first eight months of this  year in B.C. That's one  bankruptcy every six hours,"  said Skelly, "and is further  testimony to the failure of the  Socreds as economic managers  in this province.  "With such a record of incompetence, how can the  Socreds keep being re-elected  time after time?" asked Skelly.  "The ultimate truth about oppression is that it works by turning the oppressed against each  other instead of against the oppressor. -  "Bill Bennett has got people-  to vote for him by creating a  climate of fear and confronta-  tion, and that climate of fear  has kept B.C. mired in recession  while other provinces are beginning to emerge from it," said  the NDP leader.  Skelly said that he had ofc  fered an olive branch to the  Socreds so that the business of  government in B.C. could be  better conducted.

Salmon  Shark!  Sounds like an opportunity  rhat would 'lure' you? It's bait  like this that is being dropped  by Economic Development  ���Commissioner Oddvin Vedo  md the Sunshine Coast  Tourism Association president  Richard Tomkies.  Anticipating upcoming heavy  sport fishing restrictions on  salmon, and concerned about  promotion of the Sunshine  Coast for fishing charters,  which may have problems with  quotas on chmook salmon,  Vedo has approached the  department of fisheries with a  view to officially renaming the  detested dogfish the B.C.  Salmon Shark and promoting it  &s a sport- fish.  The 'hook' is that one salmon  shark would be tagged and insured for $1 million through  Lloyd's of London or some  other major insurance company, and a dogfish - er, salmon  derby could be held over a  period.of time, with an entry fee  to pay for the insurance and  advertising expenses and, you  got it, the.person who catches  the tagged fish and returns the  tag receiving $1 million. A  Variation on the theme would  see one tagged fish released each  month for the duration of the  derby, with a $100,000 prize  value each.  "We can be sure federal  fisheries won't allow any  salmon derbies in the future,"  said Vedo, "and a tourist can  justify going fishing for 'salmon  shark' but not for 'dogfish'. If  we come up with menus and  how to cook them, and promote  them as a food fish - they're'us-  ed. most other places in the  world' - people will go out  specifically to catch them. And  charters should be able to  guarantee a catch! They'll  automatically become a sport  fish."  Volunteers at work!  Vedo and Tomkies see such a  promotion good for boat rental  and charter boat businesses, as  well   as" tourism   in   general.  "Maybe someone could even  design a whole new line of  fishing tackle that salmon don't  like!" joked Vedo.  Federal fisheries minister  John Eraser will be asked to officially declare the name change  to B.C. Salmon Shark.  along Trail Bay.  After council had received  proposals for seawall studies  and recommendations from two  Vancouver engineering firm as  well as Roy, Lewis presented  council with a design plan that  utilizes 14-foot long concrete  beams which are stacked and interlocked as in log beam construction, with the 7-foot beams  going back anchored in backfill  rock. There are spaces between  the beams, and the grid which  the beams create absorbs the  force of striking waves, while  the water passing through it  filters through the backfill rock  and back to the sea.  Lewis first worked with this  kind of construction while  building a retaining wall in the  parking lot of Secret Cove  Marine. "This kind of wall  looks good and it's repairable,"  he told the Coast News, noting  that the beams are not cemented  together but are interlocking, so  a section could be taken down  and rebuilt if damage occurred.  From the sea, one would see  a 12-foot long grid face, then  the interlocking ends of the  beams, and as many sections  could be built at one time as  council wished. The wall would  slope back two and a half feet in  five feet of height. Four of its  approximately nine feet would,  be underground. Its top would  form a one foot curb for the  road above theMbeaeh, and the  '���- Watf^fJutd' bw^#?ag^gasih1i  contour; of the shoreline required.  "The wall should be parallel  to the water line," said Lewis,  noting that a constant five foot  exposure of the wall might require some eroded areas along  the beach to be reclaimed.  If council accepts its planning  committee's recommendations,  Doug Roy will be asked to do  the technical surveying of the  beach and make engineering  recommendations regarding the  proposed type of construction.  It was also suggested the design  be made available for residents'  perusal.  Planning committee chairman Harvey Bist told theCoast  News that Lewis' proposal was  more to council's liking than the  others because it is more  aesthetic and it puts the seawall  back alongside the old one, so it  will only be affected by the  worst storms of the year. Water  has been seeping behind the cur4  rent rocks on the beach and  washing the dirt away, and a  proper seawall is needed to prevent further erosion of the road  Malong-the beachM'Bi^^plaihedM  Bist noted that council particularly liked a plan which  could construct the wall in sections as money became  available, and suggested it  might be wise to build a small  section first to test how it  works.  If council moves on Wednesday to proceed with Lewis's  proposal, "We have all the  equipment and manpower  locally to do the job," said  Lewis. Even the concrete beams  will be poured on the coast at L.  & H. Swanson Ltd., and Lewis  plans to begin pouring test  beams very soon to determine  the labour, material cost and  time factors involved. The cost  for this type of construction has  been estimated at a ballpark.  figure of $10 per square foot*  and council will investigate funding available to. assist with  prevention of erosion.  Chamber's booth near  Construction of the Gibsons  and District Chamber of Commerce's tourist and business information centre in Pioneer  Park is almost ready to begin,  thanks to"' the community-  mindedness of a. number of  local business people.  The planned 12 foot by 16  foot cedar shake and beam  structure, to be attached to the  existing stone washrooms  recently repaired by the town of  Gibsons at a cost of approximately $5,000, would itself  have an estimated cash value of  $5,000, but donations of  materials and labour have  almost taken care of all expenses.  The town has already poured  the concrete footings and floor  of the structure, and further  building will commence under  the voluntary direction of log  construction expert Earl Carter,  presently employed in Vancouver. As soon as Earl is back  on the Coast, he will oversee the  raising of the yellow cedar roof  beams, generously donated by  Copac Industries ^td. at a value  of $1,000. Windsor Plywood  Ltd. had donated $300 worth of  exterior cedar siding, and $300  worth of cedar shakes is the  contribution of Cornel Sawmills  Ltd. Bob Zornes Roofing has  volunteered the labour to apply  the\ shakes, and Gibsons  Building Supplies has offered  numerous building materials.  Elson jGlass Ltd. has kindly  donated some of the windows  for the structure, with the town  of Gibsons' Works Department  contributing the rest as well as  the wiring for the building.  Canfor has made a generous  cash donation of $250, and $50  each has been contributed by  the Landing General Store,  Bonniebrook Lodge, Sunshine  Coast Credit Union, Truffles  Candy Store, Bank of Montreal, Bank of Commerce and  the Royal Bank.  Numerous materials like insulation, lumber, plywood, insulation, strapping, gyproc and  finished cedar for the interior,  plus lighting fixtures, cabinets  and a door are still needed, and  of course volunteer labour or  cash donations would be most  welcome. If you can help,  please call the chamber of commerce office, open Monday to  Friday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at  886-2325, or project manager  Larry Penonzek at 886-2531.  Candidates set  Competition is keen for most local government seats to be  decided in this month's municipal elections. Only the SCRD  has failed to provide an electoral race. Incumbents John  Shaske and Brett McGillivray of Areas F and D respectively  have been returned by acclamation as has former Area B  director Peggy Connor.  Four candidates are contesting two available seats on both  Gibsons and Sechelt councils, while six candidates seek election to the school board, contesting three seats.  On pages six and seven municipal candidates are profiled.  Next week's paper will profile the school board candidates.  Concert off  The Latin American band scheduled to play Roberts Creek  hall November 7 has been cancelled.  The Central American Support Committee will be sponsoring a "Latin American Fiesta" with a Chilean group in the  hall in late November.  Dog control vote  The non-binding referendum which asks the voters for  their position on the question of dog control will appear on  the school board ballots on November 17, according to Sunshine Coast Regional District Assistant Secretary-Treasurer^  Michael Phelan.  The referendum will ask "Would you favour the regional  district acquiring the function of animal control to be in  specified areas, and be prepared to pay for the cost of this  function by taxation of such specified areas so established at  an approximate cost of $7 per household and $4 per vacant  lot, plus revenue from licensing fees?"  If sufficent support is shown by the voters in this non-  binding referendum, a binding referendum will be held at a  later date to formally deal with the problem and acquire the  funding to do so.

The story has been  there for a long time, on the back pages of the evening  papers and in late-night telethons. What it says is this:  there are 6,000 people dying every day in Ethiopia. They  are dying of starvation.  It is true that there has been a devastating drought in  Africa for the last 15 years, but what has aggravated the  problem has been the tug of war between the forces bf the  left and right.  We can learn a lesson from this. When political  ideologies blind us to glaring and harrowing human suffering on a scale such as this, we should look to those  ideologies and ask, where does the common man fit in?  Taking a political stand while a child dies in the agony  of starvation is a betrayal of all that is good and noble in  man's political endeavour. Karl Marx believed in the common man and his struggle; the founding fathers of the  United States believed in the sanctity of human life.  This is a situation where there is no excuse. We can try  to salvage what we can of the shattered human lives remaining, but our refusal to demand humaneness instead of  ideology is a stain that no amount of foreign aid will  remove.  by Dianne Evans  Not reassuring  It would appear that Ronald Reagan is about to sweep  to victory, if we are to believe the parade of polls and opinions emanating from the United States of America.  It is simply true that these alarming times really need  little in the way of alarmist comment, still the questions  about Reagan's age and competence almost demand  comment.  Reagan was quick and emphatic and angry over the accusations from the Soviet Union that the assassination of  Indira Gandhi was inspired by the CIA. The gnawing  worry is that the CIA, which has not proven unwilling to  at least contemplate the assassination of foreign leaders?  in the past, could have had a hand in the Sikh assassination of the Indian prime minister without the snoozing  grandfather in the White House being aware of it.  Then there is the fact that the old man's vice-president  George Bush is a former head of the CIA. One cannot  feel confident about the leadership of the world's most  powerful nation, nor about the well-being of democracy  south of our border.

The Conservative  tide is still running high, it  would appear."  Jake had phoned for a ride  home from a shopping trip and  I'd been happy to oblige, not  having seen him for a couple of  weeks.  "God only knows what people are using for brains,"  responded Jake, "Apart from  valid questions about his grasp  of the job, there is the matter of  his age. I'm hereto tell you that  no man of 73 can possibly do  justice to a job as demanding as  that of presidentvQf the United  States.! don't care, how rf^'ny  daily naps he takesM"  "Hey, it's my favourite  pinkos," said Bert the  bartender. "What'11 you have  boys, a ginger ale and a couple  of straws?"  "Mind your lip, sonny," said  Jake. "It's dimwits like you that .  got us into this mess."  "What mess is that, Jake,"  said Bert.  "Listen to the man," said  Jake. "What mess is that, he  says. Don't you even know that  about   half   the   province   is  unemployed   or   on   welfare?  Don't you know that we've got  the highest bankruptcy rate in  the country? What do you use  for   brains?  -Swizzle   sticks?  You'll be telling me next you're  quite happy with the job your  Socred government is doing in  this province." ;  "It's      a      world-wide1  recession," said Bert. "It's not  the government's fault. It's the  unions, they've driven the costs  of everything too high."  "Jake," said I, "let's not  bother. Just bring a pint for me  and a ginger ale for Jake, Bert,  and spare us your wisdom."  "Fine with me," said Bert,;  "who needs to listen to your left:  wing claptrap anyway?"  Jake watched the back of the,  retreating bartender gloomily.  "What ih God's name do they  Views of the world  do in the education factories to  turn outvoters as mindless as  that one.'.-; They certainly don't  seem to produce many  thinkers."    ��� \    ' ���  "Bert's alright," I said.  "He's just brainwashed, that's  all." ��� ': {  "That's all is it," said Jake.  "As far as original, individual  thought is concerned the man's  a virgin. HoW 'much screwing  up and suffering has to take  place before thfc likes of him  start to question what's going  on? j  "I mean look;at the record.  The governments have been  peddling this crap about fiscal  restraint for years now, in  Chile, in the United Kingdom,  they've just about destroyed the  social fabric. In JB.C. they're  well along the same road but  bozos like your friend Bert are  still telling themselves that  everything is as it should be.  Their gullibility is staggering.''  "People believe what they  want to believe, Jake, and  they're none too interested in  the wrenching business of examining their basic positions."  "I know, I know," said Jake,  "but it never ceases to amaze  me what energy they will expend  in rationalizing logically impossible opinions."  "Here's your ginger ale,  oldtimer," said Bert, "now be  sure you don't turn rowdy."  "I suppose you'll be cheering  old Ronnie oh in the U.S. election this week," said Jake.  "Damn straight," said Bert.  "The sun is setting for you  pinkos. You've done enough  damage in Europe without getting a hold of government in  North America."  "Look," said Jake; "you live  in the second largest and second  richest country in the world in  terms of available resources.  "It's aiso got the smallest  population of any so-called industrialized country and it is in  an absolute economic mess.  Federally, you've only ever had  what you would delight ih calling free-enterprise governments.  You   know   what: that   really  means? The freedom for multinational corporations to buy  your resources with the tax  breaks and the profits that they  make in this country.  "Provincially your Socreds  have been running the show,  with one brief exception, for the  last 30 years and they've 'urned  the whole province into a  denuded disaster area. Think,  man, if you've got anything  upstairs at all. Show me where  your successes have been."  "1 haven't got time to argue  with you," said Bert. "I've got  work to do. No time to listen to  your sour grapes." ���!  "For the time being you?ve  got work to do," said Jake.  "For the time being. But by all  means go wash your glasses. We  wouldn't want to disturb a fool  in his paradise." ���'  Off went Bert and Jake  watched him go.  "Trying times," said Jake,  "trying times."  And Death Shall  Have No Dominion  And death shall have no dominion.  Dead men naked they shall be one  With the man in the wind and the west moon;  When their bones are picked clean  and the clean bones gone, -  They shall have stars at elbow and foot;  Though they go mad they shall be sane,  Though they sink through the sea they shall rise again;  Though lovers be lost love shall not;  And death shall have no dominion.  And death shall have no dominion.  Under the windings of the sea  They lying long shall hot die windily;  Twisting on racks when sinews give way,  Strapped to a wheel, yet they shall not break;  Faith in their hands shall snap in two,  And the unicorn evils run them through;  Split all ends up they shan V crack;  And death shall have no dominion.  And death shall have no dominion.  No more may gulls cry at their ears  Or waves break loud on the seashores;  Where blew a flower may a flower no more  Lift its head to the blows of the rain;  Though they be mad and dead as nails.  Heads of the characters hammer through daisies;  Break in the sun till the sun breaks down.  And death shall have no dominion.  Dylan Thomas  Maryanne's viewpoint  needs that we care  by Maryanne West  The   most   recent   issue  of I  Peace News, the newsletter of,  the local Peace Committee con-,  tains a thoughtful and thought-  provoking article by Brian Butcher.  He asks those of us who  march for peace and work for a  nuclear freeze and an end to the  arms race what we are doing  about violence and wars in  places like NorthernJreland, the  Middle East, and Afghanistan? Why aren't we demanding a stop to those wars?  We hear a lot about the fears  of North American children  about the possiblity of a nuclear  holocaust, but what are we doing about the millions of  children around the world  "who. live in terror and for  whom death is. a certainty"?  These are good questions for us  to ponder as we come to  another Remembrance Day and  think of all those who died in  "wars to end war".  It seems to me important that  we pressure our governments in  every way we can to work for  international understanding and  a halt to the arms race, lt is  idiotic for the human race to  allow starvation and misery for  millions of people because we  are diverting so much of our  wealth to the manufacture of  weapons of destruction. ;It just  doesn't make sense.  The trouble with the big stick  theory of security is that you're  never sure the other guy is not  arming himself with ah even  bigger stick and so the race is  on. Now that we have developed sticks of such destructive  force that the whole world may  be at risk the time has come to  devise better ways of dealing  with human problems.  Wars do not spring from the  ground like mushrooms lover-  night. The causes are many and  varied, and include hunger,  greed, inequality of opportunity, lack of self-respect, intolerance and bigotry whether  of racial or religious origin.  Yes, we must also do more to  eradicate from our hearts and  minds the thoughts and attitudes which act as barriers to  understanding, co-operation  and getting along with other  people. There's a nice display in  the school board office from  Sechelt elementary school where  a grade two class has been  discussing the things which are  necessary for happy homes and  communities, love and caring,  sensitivity and a willingness to  co-operate.  Yes, we must, from our  bounty give to those to have little, those in our own community and around the world who  are in need.  Yes, it is important that we  remember those who gave their  lives in wars, but we must do  more than wear poppies and it-  tend   cenotaph   services.   \#e  must all work to make sure thV  never again will any nations  youth be called upon to sacrifice  their lives. We must find otr&r  ways, we must ensure that |HI  people are treated fairly so thj��t  we do not prepare the soil j>f  discontent which may nourish  the rise of other tyrants.       *C  Brian, who up until now hsfe  watched  the activities of t��e  peace   movement ' from "thjb  sidelines thinks that both th��  marchers and the fence sitterj  may have missed the point.   %  He suggests that all of ul  "have to care more, to hugt  more, to reach out to all M>?  those in this world trapped i5gi  wars thought up by someon��  else. It's time to forget who i$  right  and who is wrong"  scj  what we can put an end to thg;  madness  which  threatens ouV  world.  W:-  m  *M  1  I  K Coast News, Novembers, 1984  3.  M !

In   the   towns  j^fiatriotic ladies (noticeably those  --without    male   relatives   of  -"military   age)   pinned    white  ^���chicken feathers to the chests of  ^���astonished    farmers   already  jshort-handed in the production  Awards  of vital wheat and beef to feed  the army; and in turn feed the  killing machines which mowed  and. reaped on the killing fields  of France.  I remember clearly Armistice  Day, November 11, 1918. On  our farm in Alberta we saw a  horse and buggy in the distance  galloping towards us on the  road. The driver shouted, "The  war is over!" and galloped on.  My Irish father called to my  mother, "Glory be to God! The  war is over!". Then my parents,  my youngest brother, my little  sister and I walked the prairie  distance to our nearest  neighbours to spread the good  news. Our two border collies,  catching the excitement, walked  beside us, wagging and  laughing. My father said to our;  neighbour (with whom he had  been quarreling), "The war is  over" and shook his hand. My  mother and our neighbour's  wife wept together. And I imagined people all over the land  nodding to one another and  saying, "The war is over!".  That was the way I became  inoculated for life against the  fever of militarism and war.  Isabel Ralph  Halfmoon Bay  Eyeglasses urgently needed  Editor:  plea  ~~~ This letter is addressed mainly to Pender Harbour and  District people.  Dear Former Student - Did  you ever get an award in high  school - or wish you had?  Remember the excitement in  c i June of learning who got the  vyear's awards?  '.. Remember your pleased surprise   when   some   "unsung"  ���v.hero or heroine was singled out  .for a good effort, or service to  ^.fellow students, or sportsman-  :/ship?  X:. Then there was your admiration (not to say envy) of those  .constant high achievers, and the  agonized moments when your  /own name might be selected.  Do you  think  high  school  awards are worthwhile? Do they  j~help students feel proud of their  S efforts - give them something to  ��� work toward?  ��� If in your opinion Pender  \ Harbour secondary ought to  j keep up its traditional awards,  ; you'll be sad to know there is  | not enough money in the  j school's  restricted  "kitty"  to  ��� cover engraving, etc. of even  ; last June's trophies.  It would  ��� take $200 to meet last year's and  ��' this June's costs.  ! We, the Parents' Committee,  ! would appreciate any help you  I can give. It could be a donation  ! to PHSS, R.R. 1, Madeira  ' Park. Or, perhaps you can give  ! us some ideas on how best to  | deal with this problem which  \ seems so small in some ways, so  j important in others.  \ I. Griffith, Chairman  |       Pender Harbour Secondary  School Consultative Committee  Editor:  I recently sent a parcel of  used eyeglasses to the Canadian  Foundation for World Development and enclose the literature  they sent me. '  If you have room in your columns sometime could you give  them a little coverage?  I don't need the literature  returned. As they say���the need  is really great.  Lori Wilson  Sechelt  Little did we know four years  ago when we responded to the  urgent cries for help with  eyeglass programs that the need  was actually so great. We are into our fourth year of projects in  Mexico and have just completed  the first of on-going programs  in Haiti and. Jamaica. In  Jamaica we work in conjunc  tion   with   the   Lions   Clubs  throughout the island.  We urgently need your heip  in the collection of 100,000 pairs  of eyeglasses. Statscan just collected 2,400 pairs in their offices  across Canada; Air Canada  employees keep mailing glasses  in, CP Air retired employees are  also helping as well as churches,  schools, and service clubs. But  we must keep them coming.  Please channel our needs to all  Canadians within your realm of  contact.  Thousands of hours go into  determining the prescription of  the glasses donated, numbering  each glass and storing them for  quick selection once our voluntary optometrists and opticians  are in the field.  Words can't describe the joy  and elation as each recipient  discovers that he or she can now  see clearly. We've fitted  teenagers with high prescription  glasses who never had a pair of  glasses before. Elderly ladies  who can no longer thread a needle radiate their appreciation  that now they can sew again.  Our other projects in health,  nutrition, education,  agriculture, reforestation, etc.  are significant but recycled  eyeglasses bring instant satisfaction. We feel privileged to bring  this service to thousands of people.  We can only do it with your  help.  Kenneth G. Davis  Canadian Foundation for  World Development  Willowdale, Ontario  Toxic -wastes a concern  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following was received for  publication.  The Honourable  Donald Mazankowski  Dear Mr. Minister:  Serious concern has been expressed by many people in the  Comox-Powell River riding  about the government of  Canada allowing the U.S. to  transport highly toxic waste  material from Alaska to the  southern U.S. within Canadian  waters through the inside  passage.  There is also serious concern  about the U.S. aircraft flying  toxic wastes from Alaska to the  state of Washington over Canadian territory.  I would urge you to develop  regulations that would prohibit  the transport of U.S. toxic  waste through Canadian waters  or Canadian airspace where  there is a real danger of an accident and disposal of PCBs or  other highly toxic material in  Canada.  In addition, the government  of Canada should attempt to  establish an international  understanding with the U.S. on  the handling of toxic material.  This material is extremely  dangerous and should be  disposed of in Alaska.  1 would appreciate receiving a  description of what action the  government is taking to prevent  U.S. toxic wastes from being  transported through Canada.  Yours truly,  Raymond Skelly, MP  Comox - Powell River  Note: Citizens who wish to support Mr. Skelly's request should  write postage free to:  The Honourable Donald  Mazankowski, Minister of  Transport, or The Honourable  Suzanne Blais-Grenier, Minister  of the Environment, House of  Commons, The Parliament  Buildings, Ottawa, Ontario,  K1A 0A6.  Sparacino answered  When you want economy  ...Skookum Delivers  Editor:  I cannot sit back and accept  the unfair and biased criticism  of Mr. Jbseph Sparacino in  your October 29 issue of the  Coast NewsM  He accuses Mr. Reagan of  being a draft dodger and a  coward with having the mentality of one with street corner  breeding as well as being  dangerous as Hitler.  I will not 'defend Mr.  Reagan's policies as I do not  agree with all of them, but I  would question Mr. Sparacino's  qualification to judge or  criticize him in this way.  Grenada was invaded to  displace the Cubans (USSR  puppets) and is now going to  have its own free elections. It  seems strange that the only people unhappy with this invasion  are the Cubans and a few vocal  Canadians.  I have never seen a letter to  the editor of yours with regard  to, as you would put it, the rape  ^f Afghanistan by the USSR:'  You claim the fortification of  the White House is in place to  protect the president from his  own people. I believe you are insulting the average American  you are trying to impress. 1  think you should wake up and  smell the coffee sir, the terrorists are being organized and  funded by the USSR as is proving out with the attempted  assassination of the Pope.  Finally with regard to mentality, if you are serious you  should thank God that the US  has the nuclear power to deter  the Holocaust you fear, if not,  you must be of the mentality of  better Red than anything.

Hotline 885-7512 Dealer 7381 Sechelt  Editor:  On behalf of the British Columbia Medical Association, I  congratulate and commend  Deputy Speaker Bruce Strachan  for sponsoring a private  member's bill to raise the legal  drinking age in B.C. to 21.  We in British Columbia are  failing in our responsibilty to  structure systems that prevent  people from killing themselves  and others in motor vehicle accidents.  In 1970, the B.C. government  lowered the drinking age from  21 to 19. As a result, our young  people are killing themselves  and others in alcohol-related accidents on our roads and  highways more than ever  before.  The statistics are staggering:  Adolescent drivers hold seven  per cent of drivers' licenses in  B.C., but account for four  times as many highway fatalities  (23 per cent) as other drivers.  Fifty-eight per cent of accidents involving drivers under  the age of 20 are alcohol-related  and 87 per cent occur at night.  U.S. states that have re-raised  their drinking ages show an  average drop in night-time  fatalities of 28 per cent. Projecting this onto B.C.'s annual  death and injury toll means a  possible saving of many lives  and the averting of hundreds of  tragedies.  Raising the drinking age to 21  became official BCMA policy in  1983   and  I  can  assure  Mr.  Strachan of the complete support of the doctors of this province when he takes his bill  before the legislative assembly.  Gerry Stewart, M.D.  President  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following letter, addressed to  the chairman of the regional  board, was received for publication.  Dear Mr. Gurney,  Thank you for your letter of  September 27. As we stated, our  goal is to establish an animal  control centre. To that end, the  Gibsons pound (which lies  within the regional district's  juriscition) could be utilized as a  central facility. Gibsons council has indicated a willingness to  negotiate with the SCRD. An  animal control bylaw should be  enacted and enforced with  license fees payable to the  regional district (defraying some  of the expense). Cost informa-  tionjincluding suggested reduced fees to owners of spayed or  neutered pets) has been supplied  to Director McRae and Jardine.  We suggest the Gibsons animal  control officer could randomly  patrol areas of the district. A  regional district employee  should be responsible to deliver  nuisance animals to the Gibsons  pound when the Gibsons office  is unavailable. Injured animals  should be delivered to the  nearest vet.  With permission from the executive director of the B.C.  SPCA, we will co-operate with  any form of animal control.  Our proposals are: 1. to provide volunteer assistance for  animals should an adequate  shelter be provided, 2. our inspectors will investigate cruelty  complaints, 3. we will'supply  an SPCA phone number to  assist the public, 4. our society  will be responsible for the  handling and cost of euthanasia  for impounded and unplaceable  animals, 5. our society (with  the help of the public) would  handle after hour emergencies.

Selia, .appearing on a show called  '���Parenting", is a natural for  television and especially on a  show designed to reach  children.  Gf course, Selia's Ensemble  Theatre plays reached all of us  who saw them but I could not  help but notice how the children  behaved. From running wild  around the hall, doing  calisthenics or whatever, they,  suddenly, ran quietly to their  places and sat down without being told as the play was about to  begin.  It seemed unbelievable that  this could happen for I know  some of those children and they  do not behave like that at home.  Selia has beautiful hands  which expressively demonstrate  creative projects for children.  She is a born entertainer and  teacher and loves to do both.  Perhaps not everyone knows  that Selia Karsten was a prime  mover in bringing "Theatresports" to the Sunshine Coast,  and 1 do wish her well.  WINNER  The winner at the recent Miss  Sea Cavalcade lottery draw was  C. Harrison who has received  $400. Many thanks to those  who participated.

Everyone is welcome to  attend the ceremony. The bar  will be open that' afternoon.  Something a lot of people  don't realize about the Remembrance Day poppies is that the  proceeds stay right here in  Roberts Creek to help out local  \5eterans when they need it.  "��hus if you give generously to  the boxes in Roberts Creek you  know you're helping out somebody in the community, not just  sfrme anonymous fund in Ottawa.

Roberts  Creek kids 12 and up have the  opportunity to get together for  games, ping pong, pool, dancing, and visiting with good  parental supervision but  minimal interference.  Any parents interested in  helping please phone Pam  Lumsden at 885-3522.  The Teen Night proved very  successful last winter and provides an example other communities could follow. The kids  showed their appreciation last  Wednesday by cleaning up the  grounds and sprucing up the  cenotaph at the Legion for  Remembrance Day. Many  . thanks to those who turned out.  CARDS STARTING  People were eager so Thursday Card Night started last  week at the Roberts Creek  Legion. Most people came to  play cribbage but sometimes  there's enough for bridge too.  The downstairs is available  for pool players and the bar is  open. Everybody is welcome,  including non-members. Crib  starts at 8 p.m. sharp, so get  there before then.

THANK YOUS  My back yard is calming  down again after extensive  drain-field shenanigans. For a  while it looked like the trenches  of World War I. I'd like to  thank Ray Hansen for a fast efficient job and for his extra  generosity, also Steve for patient   and   resourceful   back-  In Sechelt  hoeing. Al Vannee helped give  me a steady porch that one  can't fall through and Fred  Duthie has all sewage going the  right way. One last person to  thank is Harry Morris-Reade  who encouraged and helped me  all along the way. While he  wanted it done correctly he also  showed me which hoops to  jump through and how, so we  could get the darn thing done!

"I  am aware that we must mount a  fairly extensive road rebuilding  and paving program," he said,  "and numerous drainage pro,-  blems must be solved. I am  aghast at our open ditches.''  Mr. Craig also wants to break  down the corners of curbs to accommodate wheelchairs, so  their users will have more  freedom of movement within  the village.  '���M.'v.'l would like to do more for  the arena, within reason," he  continued, "perhaps increasing  the seating capacity from the  present 250 by another 150, and  I would love to arrange a  ���transportation system for the  arena. With the new concrete  floor ^making the building  available for summer programs,  the arena is a real public recreational opportunity."  Doing something with the  waterfront is important for the  village, feels Mr. Craig, and he  is looking deeply into the  seawall proposals.  An issue which may face  Sechelt in the future is its  amalgamation with neighbouring regional areas, and Mr.  Craig is "neither pro nor con at  this time. I have a lack of information on the benefits or  demerits of such a change, and  a study would have to be done  to determine the effects on the  village."  Mr. Craig is spearheading the  printing of a monthly newsletter  for residents to bring to taxpayers' attention routine matters concerning the village with  which council has to deal. One  of those matters is revenue for  the village and the levying of  taxes. "People might have to  pay a few more dollars in taxes  next year," he warned.  Mr. Craig, 69, and his wife  Hazel have lived in West Sechelt  for ten years. Currently a  notary public, Mr. Craig has  also been a real estate agent and  was a flight lieutenant in the air-  force for 25 years. He has one  son.

HALLOWE'EN  Community Hallowe'en fun  week is over for another year.  First there was the Hallowe'en  dance which was a success, so  many good costumes I thought  we should have eight first  prizes. The music by Whyte  Feather was good, the profit,  better than last year. Thanks to  the volunteers, Jack, Gene,  Suzy, Cathy, Wayne, and Brian  who organize and work the  dances and the donations from  the Backeddy, Wigwam Campsite and Mary and Jack  Williams the local fishbuyers.  The school children decorated the hall with Hallowe'en  witches, bats, spiders, pumpkins and paper chains for the  dance and for the community  Hallowe'en celebration on October 31.  The Backeddy had a children's costume party and parade  on Sunday afternoon; Lisa  O'Neill dressed as a Christmas  tree won first prize. There were  many good Hallowe'en costumes this year.

Lenora I. Inglis  RETURNING OFFICER  i Coast News, Novembers, 1984  "* *    . " Xh      "  JACK MARSHALL  |t I am primarily interested in  t|eeing that Gibsons is a com-  \ fortable place to reside, and that  !|ax money is well and carefully  'fpent.  ���*-��� In my committee work as  aldernian in the past three years  Fhave been involved with water  and sewer particularly. 1 think it  best for Gibsons to remain independent in its water service  until the town is assured that in  any consideration of joining a  larger water district that the  quality, quantity, and cost at  least will remain the same, or be  even better.  I see expansion of the sewer  only to serve the needs of the  town itself. The air pollution  from the plant on Stewart Road  needs attention, and steps  should be- taken now to  eliminate this nuisance.  Where recreation facilities are  concerned, I take the stand that  any expenditure needs detailed  consideration before money is  laid out. I would look for plans  to be ready long before the town  council even considers spending  money on recreation. Then  when funds are. available  through surplus in the budget  for example, we don't. do  anything hastily conceived.  Our roads need attention  urgently. Since .the town now  has the frames for making curbs  and gutters, I would look forward to seeing this work undertaken, especially on roads like  School Road to avoid run-off  damage and nuisance.  I would certainly encourage  additional, amenities such as a  pharmacy to be added to our  lower Gibsons area as part of its  revitalization.  ,1��'   v As* '       *  ���    -^K     A ����. <"*"<  ;���;: NORM PETERSON  M;; Norm Peterson, life-long resident of the Sunshine Coast, is  Ihjjmning for an aldermanic position oh the Gibsons council.  Jl&lr. Peterson is a realtor with  !|;Pcbbles Realty, Gibsons, and as  ijfluch feels that he can bring a  ^'thorough knowledge of the area  Ho his position on council.  MI think I would be an  asset," said Mr. Peterson.. "We  need growth in Gibsons. I can  see the bay becoming more of  an area of commercial activity.  We do need the tourist industry,  because we haven't got a job  base here.  "You know, most people  think of real estate as a  derogatory thing, but I see it as  very positive. In my position 1  get to see how the community is  developing, what kind of  facilities people want and need.  Right now, with the Kiwanis  Home,' and the increasing  population of elderly people, 1  think we have to make Gibsons  a place for older people to enjoy. We have to develop areas,  down in lower Gibsons and up  above as well, where there are  places to walk and enjoy the  fresh air."  Mr. Peterson went on, "I  think I can help give a stable  government; I've been involved  in the community for a long  time, 29 years in Kinsmen, six  years as the chairman of the  Gibsons Library Association,  and I've belonged to most of the  other service clubs. I feel the  whole community should work  in harmony to find solutions  that are satisfactory to all.  "Our family has been involved in Gibsons for years. I guess  you could say that liking the  town runs in the family."  Mr. Peterson is married; he  and his wife, Joan have two  children, Erin and Jason.  Four vie in Sechelt  Continued from page 6  Jim Hopkins is running to fill  '& Sechelt aldermanic seat  tjjecause he's upset .about the  "^pathetic,  voting   patterns  Developing in the village.  We're getting too used to peo-  j-fle getting in by acclamation,"  me said. "It's about time  Smother hat or two got thrown  fertto the ring. And there's no  Sbint complaining about it  ffiiless you're willing to do  Something about it yourself."  U, A former businessman, Mr.  Hopkins has worked in varied  fields.   He operated tugboats,  nmning his own company  which employed 300 pepple,  built and ran feedmills, built  grain elevators, ran logging  operations, and developed the  first underwater tree snipper.  He was involved in developing  legislative changes in both the  forestry act and the grain act.  Since moving to the Sunshine  Coast 10 years ago he has been  "trying to live the retired life",  and finds it keeps him quite  busy.  Mr. Hopkins feels the seawall  proposal is an important one  r atid needs a lot "more study, including consideration pf a  breakwater and a launching  ramp, perhaps even a marina.  "There could be a lot of spinoff benefits from such a project," he said.  Amalgamation with areas B  and C "would have to be considered," although he hasn't  looked into the matter yet. He  suggests a public referendum be  held on the issue after expert advice and guidelines have been  received.  Mr. Hopkins feels "the  village seems to be going  backwards. There arc empty  storefronts; we need to make  the village attractive and encourage economic development." His suggestions to get  people working involve light  manufacturing, such as  developing a small feed mill to  serve both livestock and the  burgeoning fish farm market,  and encouraging more "value  added" products in the lumber  industry, such as turning two by  six's into siding hereon the  Coast rather than shipping the  lumber and jobs to the Fraser  Valley.  "We often talk about these  things; but we do little about  them," said Mr. Hopkins. "I  have time to devote to the  village and will do the best I  can. I know I have a lot of  reading and studying to do."  Mr. Hopkins, 58, and his  wi fe Grace live in Sechelt and  have two grown'daughters.  BILL FOREMAN  . Bill Foreman, 50, is running  fyr an aldermanic seat in  Sfecheli.. because "I feel I can  nftake a worthwhile contribution  to the community and the  Coast." Owner of Peninsula Insurance Agencies and a resident  of the Sunshine Coast for seven  years, Mr. Foreman says, "We  earn our livelihood here and I  would like to return something  to the community."  Mr. Foreman brings with him  16 years of experience managing  his own firm, and is a former  director of the Lions Club, a  director of the golf club, and  past president of the Life  Underwriters of New  Westminster.  He sees deporting the beaver  from the Sechelt Marsh as an  immediate issue for council to  deal with, and considers  drainage improvements, and  road and sidewalk improvements to be major areas of  concern. He hopes council will  move forward on the seawall  and also become involved in  promoting tourism to help the  local economy.  "I like to think we will have a  forward-looking council which  will do things to stimulate the  local economy, especially for  young people," he said.  "Council could help promote  local businesses, not necessarily  industries, things involving  tourism, for example. There are  things that could help that  aren't being done."  Mr. Foreman is married to  Judy, who works with him at  Peninsula Agencies, and has  one daughter, Robin.  ARTHUR SHAW  j* Forty-seven year old Arthur  Sjiaw is seeking election to both  trje school board of School  District #46 and the council of  t��e village of Sechelt. Shaw says  t^at he has done much study in  i/ariety of disciplines and has a  side range of job experiences  eluding working as logger,  acher, tug boat skipper, ac-  >untant, and commercial  |herman.  'He is a third generation  ���. ladian of British extraction,  5rn in Alberta but who moved  B.C. in 1938. Twice-married  }aw is the father of. seven  _|ildren, one boy and six girls.  |"Locally and nation-wide the  nf>st glaring social problem I  sefe is the low fertility rate; yet it  islonly a symptom of other  fJuIts: mechanization, male  chauvinism,   centralization   of  power,   fBfgiga=^ control,   and  schooling. We nee^r*"afcdjstinctly  Canadian approach torgpface,  the one we import from Uncle  Sam."  Shaw says that he "fifcally  decided that children were his  most important interest and 'by  1969 I knew the public school  system was not serving the interest of education'.  "By 1969," says Shaw I felt I  had exhausted all areas of study  and realized I would have to do  my own research."  If elected, Shaw says he  would strive to reduce the importance of both village council  and the school board by  eliminating some of their functions. He would press for decentralization and more authority  for mothers.  His concluding statement  says: "You can knock a man  down. You can hit him when  he's down, but you can't keep a  good man down."

Claims *  Wharf Rd., Sechelt - next to South Coast Ford  KENNETH MICHAEL  Kenneth Michael, running  for the position of alderman on  the Gibsons council, has lived at  Granthams Landing, since 1978.  Married, with a young son and  another child expected, Mr.  Michael works for the B.C.  Ferry Corporation.  Mr. Michael has been very  active in union affairs, and enjoys "putting the effort into  elected office", but has found  that the large amount of travell-  ,, ing required by this business has  ���:.<��� taken him away from home and  family for too long. Because he  wants to make a contribution to  the community, he has decided  to run for office in the town of  Gibsons.  Several issues are of concern  to Mr. Michael, one of the most  important being the transportation problem. "I feel we should  use as much pressure;as possible  to get ourselves a core schedule,  one that doesn't change from  year to year. Late night sailings  . are another must; I have a good  background in transportation  and can offer a lot of determination in this area," he said.  'Other issues include the  unemployment problem, "I  think we must expand our  economic base, arid do  everything we can to maintain  existing jobs and services," said  Mr. Michael in an interview  with the Coast News. "I feel we  have to keep working to get  what federal and provincial funding we can to help us improve  the lives of the people who live  here; then we can look to the  tourist and provide decent  facilities."  Co-operation between different levels of government is  seen as a must and Mr. Michael  summed up his views thus, "My  basic stand is for responsive and.  responsible government. The  emphasis is on responsibility;  those elected to local government should be very accountable to the electorate."  Mr. Michael has been a  volunteer with the Gibsons ambulance since 1979, and is also a  training officer. He has been  teaching St. John's courses for  the past six years and has also  given instruction to many local  volunteer groups in basic first  aid and CPR.  JOHN REYNOLDS  John Reynolds, 34, who is  running for election to Gibsons  council, has lived on the Sunshine Coast since December  1980, coming here from Vancouver, where he had lived since  1976. His interest in local  politics was sparked at marina  meetings, some 10 months ago,  and since then he has attended  most council and planning committee meetings to "see what's  going on".  As a barge-operator he is  concerned with marine cargo,  among other things, and sees  Gibsons' future linked to the  bay and the use of the resources  available. He is also a commercial diver and sees as a real  possibility the development of  the Gibsons area as "a sport-  diving centre.  "I. feel I can do well on coun  cil," he said in an interview, "1  certainly seem to be more interested than any other member  of the public in what goes on at  meetings. I'm frequently the only member of the community  _ present. I think there should be  $|!;a lot more public input in deci-  "v*\sion making; the public should  be better informed and more interested in things that may affect their lives directly.  "The council could benefit  XX from  having  someone  in  the  centre; I don't believe that local  politics should involve partisan  affiliations. As for the direction  the town, should take - we have  to look at the total concept of  .  revitalization of the downtown  area, including a good look at  the seawalk, and the possiblity  of eventually builing a conven  tion hotel, as has been discussed.  rm    an    under-employed  electrician, barge-operator and  commercial diver, I belong to  the Gibsons Volunteer Fire  Department and I've got time  and energy to give to the job."  TO THE VOTER  IN GIBSONS  In order to be a good representative  on our town council, I must know what  concerns you. Please call me between  9 a.m. and noon today, Tuesday,  Thursday, Friday, or leave a message  any other time.  JOHN S.

The end of hostilities between  these two powerful opposing forces  marked the end of "the war to end all  wars" or "The Great War", as it was also  called. Many observe silent memorial at the  eleventh hour on this day.  Although a result of WWI, this special  day has become a time to honor all  those who so unselfishly served in our  nation's Armed Forces, those who risked  so much to preserve the high ideals and  future hopes of a Democratic World.

Rigby  Returning Officer  Hi^l^^^S^^^ft^S^MJl^  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  HALLOWEEN FUN:    -    , '  " Lots pf wdrd and wonderful  costumes were to be seen ib the  Halfmoon Bay area last Week.  First Of ail there vvas the well  attended dance at Welcome  Beach Hall on Saturday night  wWch was sponsored by the  Recreation Society. A record  must haver been set at this one  because; everyone was.. .in  costume. Qne which caused a  lot of laughs was when Dave  Lamb turned , up, as Little  Bopeep complete with five gals  all dressed as sheep.  then there was the party at  Halfmoon Bay School at which  all the wee ones plusi their kid  sisters and brothers were in  costume. Not only that���some  parents and the teachers added  to the fun by appearing as such  characters as Boy George, a  twenties flapper, and a couple  pf clowns.  There were all sorts of activities set up for the little ones  such as dunking for apples,  decorating cookies, making  pumpkin lanterns, and the most  weird and creepy item of the lot  was a box of "What witches are  made pf". When you put your  hand through a black cloth  opening you got to feel a witch's  ear, her eyeballs were in another  slot, some gooey cold'jelly stuff  was her blood, and the most  scary one of all was the one  which was her hand, which  grabbed on to you when you  put your hand inside. Who said  that kids didn't like to be  scared! They loved it.  Then on the big night there  was the most impressive  fireworks display from the  wharf, which was enjoyed by  the -whole neighbourhood  followed by the party at the  firehall where everyone got  goodies to eat and a warm-up at  the huge bonfire. Our thanks go  out tp the guys of the fire  department who do such a great  job every Hallowe'en.  From Davis  Bay and  Wilson Crk  by Jean Robinson, 88S-2954~  COMMUNITY  ASSOCIATION  TTie Community Association  meets at the hall op November  12 at 7:30 p.m.   Come and  discuss Myays to improve our  : haU^uch as cement slab and re-  :'���; tajning M#ajl In the basement,  panic   pars  and;Mdpors,   new  ;vMeachers   for   Whittaker  Playground, etc. What are your  ideas, what are our priorities?  Come on out folks, it's your  community hall.  THANKS FOR HELP V  Again, many thanks to all  who contributed to the community hall and Whittaker  Playground beautification. The  trees, shrubs, and plants are all  in now. Those people who missed bringing in their pledges will  be phoned in the spring. Special  thanks to Jon McRae for arranging for a backhoe and to  Casey's Country Garden for  their contribution. Come to the  hall anytime after mid-  November and see your name  on a scroll.  PUMPKIN CONTEST  Davis Bay elementary school  had a contest to guess the  weight of the" pumpkin kindly  donated by Site and Bill  LeNeve. Also the children  guessed how many seeds were in  it. Karen Middlemiss guessed  nearest to the 118 pound weight  and Quentin Lair got the prize  for guessing nearest the 583  seeds.  BLOCK PARENTS  Don't forget the very import-:  ant meeting on November 13 at  the school to find a district coordinator, for the BlockParents.  This person will not do any  screenmgpf prospective Block  Parents' onlyM act as coordinator. M  ROD AND GUN CLUB  The Sechelt Rod and Gun  Club "Chili Bake-Off" is coming up soon men. Are you prac- -���.  ticing? There are prizes for the  best chili, to 1)e judged by non '���  club members. Put on your frilly aprons guys 'cause it's my  understanding you will be doing  - the washing up as well.  The junior program is well  underway now. Still time to join  if you forgot earlier.  The Wild Game Banquet is  set for sometime in December.  Watch for the date of this  gounhet treat.  SOCIAL SUNDAYS  For those of you who find a  dull Sunday afternoon a bit of a  drag, you can now pop along to  the Welcome Beach Hall between 1 and 4 p.m. and get  together, with some friends for a  game of cards of whatever.  The hall will be open each  Sunday throughout the winter  and you will be most welcome.  Why not pop in and see what's  going on. v  SUCCESSFUL BAZAAR  The members of the.Halfmoon Bay Hospital Auxiliary  would like to express their appreciation to the many people  who supported the most successful bazaar last Saturday.  Also a big thank you to those  who donated items for the sale  and for the raffles, especially to  the Mercers of Buccaneer  Marina for the wonderful donation of the boat which proved to  be such a great fund-raiser.  Auxiliary meetings are on the  first Monday of each month  and new members are always  needed.  FUND RAISING  Talking of groups���it was  most gratifying to learn that  Nikki Weber with-her various  groups of singers had raised  $974.00 towards the new  building fund for the Seniors  hall. This was- from the two  shows '"��� The Fun of Group  Singing", and that, together  with the recent semi-classical  evening, has made the fund  almost fifteen hundred dollars  richer. Well done Nikki.  Again our thanks to all the  good people who attended the  shows���you are always a great  audience and everyone seems to  have thoroughly enjoyed them.  No doubt Nikki has yet another  show up her sleeve.  TICKETS AVAILABLE  It's surprising to note that there  are still some tickets left for the  dinner dance at Welcome Beach  Hall this Saturday. Considering  that you will have a good meal  and live music to dance to for  only $6 it should have been sold  out long ago. Here's hoping  that there will be more support  shown by the members and that  you will order your ticket before  Wednesday by giving Joyce  Niessen a call at 885-5956.  r Clip this Coupon���  *    AND YOU WILL RECEIVE >-*���  I -tt* s&m-% off x-  U  |  HWY 101,  ^SECHELT 825-3132^^  %l o\v  NOTICE TO WATER USERS  SELMA PARK TO THE CEMETERY  The SCRD will be commencing the annual flushing of the  water mains in your area on November 5, 1984.

There  were times when fear gripped one's vital organs to the point of nausea, but  the "togetherness" of trained groups from sections, platoons, companies,  battalions, brigades and divisions made for a feeling of strength, security  -and above all - comradeship. Men actually cared for each other, and��without  hesitation died for each other. ,  Before WWII we had been through nine years of economic depression. I  was fortunate to be working as a wholesale drapery salesman. Many of us  quit our jobs to join up; others being out of work, for the security of food,  clothing, shelter and a bit of pocket money; and of course, a lot of men joined for adventure.  I will not be able to share-the memories of those who served In the air, on  the sea or in the Korean or other theatres of war, except by way of distant  observation by film or the written word.  BUY & WEAR-A POPPY  Back home again, families were tearfully and joyfully re-united, the youth  of our lands, after years of pause, were able to build homes, and raise  families. The baby-boom was upon us, people who today are approaching  middle age. ; .  We have enjoyed the longest era of prosperity the world has ever known.  We have been to the moon and back many times. Our scientific achievements  are astronomical, but we seem to have lost sight of some important financial  lessons. Those being the pressures that brought on inflation in the 20s to  financial collapse in 1929. .   -  The nature of man is such that when a need or want is satisfied another  takes its place. Whereas during the struggle for survival we worked and  fought together sacrificing personal needs and wants, we have now lost that  desire or capability. We have once again fallen back on the same paths that  led to poverty, war and destruction.  In the, interests of the common good, we need to set aside political and  workplace differences. We need to jointly define and pursue goals that will  lead to useful and peaceful occupations for all. We need to work together in  a spirit of co-operation. I dread to think of our future if we fail to change.  SHOP IALK  History is a record of that which transpired for the benefit of generations  that follow. If history Is well learned It should give us an insight into the  predictable actions of people when under pressure or given certain opportunities.  The harsh reparations imposed on the people of Germany by the victorious  Allies in 1918-19 eventually led to the support of a leader who would lead  them out of their morass. While Hitler built up a powerful war machine, and  put people to work, our British and French allies, from a position of bare-  bones weakness and a hungry populace, tried to negotiate for peace. We all  know the result. And yet, there are those who today try to countermand that  hard learned lesson. We ali want peace,���how we best achieve It,���Is the  vital question.  After WWII the Allies were particularly magnanimous as victors. They aided the defeated enemies with capital and Industrial material and know-how.  The lessons of the period after WWI had been well learned.  People, literally ai! over the world were busy rebuilding. From utter ruins,  the people of Europe worked to rebuild their demolished villages, towns and  cities, there was little strife. Everyone was busy and happy that fear of Instant  death or other personal tragedy was over.  "REALWIN"  ^^_^W'XX-iX^tMtX  w$wM>  *>;;  V ts  ��2��M^i?:Mi��  IFiSIII   MARKET]  K.L.D.

Most;of  them would be happy Mo  autograph the copies you buy;  just ask your bookseller to arrange it. '  Any list of Sunshine Coast  writers must begin with Hubert  Evans, the writer that Margaret  Laurence   describes   as   ''the  Elder of our tribe". There are  four Hubert Evans books still  available: Most Coast People  (Harbour   Publishing),   which  contains some of the best Evans  poems; Son of Salmon People  (Harbour), essentially a young  people's story about racism and  conservation   although   this  hasn't prevented adults  from  enjoying it; Mist on the River  (McClelland  and   Stewart),  a  novel of Indian-White relations;  and O Time in Your Flight  (Harbour), illustrated by local  artist Robert Jack, and based  on   Evans'  own  boyhood   in  turn-of-the-century Ontario.  Edith Iglauer, a resident of  Garden Bay and a regular con-. ���t  tributor   to    NewMYorli|e^^  magazine, is the author of three '  books available here: Denison's  Ice Road (Douglas and Mclh-j  tyre), the story of Wintelr  freighting in the Northwest Territories; The New People  (Doubleday), the story of the  Eskimos' journey into modern  times; and Seven Stones (Harbour Publishing), a portrait of  architect Arthur Erickson and  his work.  Gibsons poet Peter Trower,  recently, admitted to the  prestigious Poets League of  Canada, has four books in  print: Ragged Horizons (McClelland and Stewart), Moving  Through the Mystery (Talon  Books) with visuals by Jack  Wise; Bush Poems (Harbour  Publishing) with illustrations by  Bus Griffiths; and his most recent book, Goosequill Songs  (Harbour).  Madeira Park's Howard  White is the author ,pf The Men  There Were Then, a collection  of poems inspired by men.of the  woods, and A Hard Man to  Beat (Pulp Press), the story of  labour leader Bill White.  Local poet Zoe Caldwell  turned to prose to recount her  adventures as a fisherman in  Harvest. Salmon (Hancock  House, 1977).  iiv  Harbour Publishing has a  new book oiit" for children,  - "uncles',-aunts and parents" entitled What Are Uncles For? by  John Lane. What makes it interesting for Sunshine Coasters  is the fact that is is illustrated by  a very youhg Madeira Park resident, Silas White, and his friend  Jeremy Twigg.  David Nuttall of Pender Harbour is the author of Mooching:  The Salmon Fisherman's Bible  (Hancock House) which even  includes the psychology of  fishing!  Jan de Bruyn, recently retired  to Sandy Hook, is the co-author  of a "must" for all good  writers: The Canadian Writer's  Handbook.  A new resident of Roberts  Creek, Jeff Chilton, is one of  the authors of The Mushroom  Cultivator (Agarikon Press)  which is subtitled A Practical  Guide to Growing.Mushrooms  at Home.

Hunter was  at the Book Store in Sechelt on  Friday, November 2 to talk  about her, recently published  work, "Psych Yourself In  -Hypnosis and Health"  (SeaWalk Press).  In ^ conversation with the  Coast News before her talk  began, Dr. Hunter credited  local writer Betty Keller with  having "badgered" her into  writing about her work withj|  hypnosis. "Over the years I've  never found a book which addresses the question of how to  use hypnosis to keep good  health. It's largely a preventative thing...start when you're  healthy and then work to stay  healthy," she added.  Hypnosis  is  a  tool   which  everyone has the capability of  using, once the basic skill is  learned. It is used extensively in  the treatment of tension and  stress related diseases, such as  insomnia, high blood pressure,  colitis, .'skin   problems,   and_  psychosomatic ailments;   it'is^'^  salso used for the relief of pain,  both chronic and acute. "You  have to want to do it," explained Dr. Hunter, "and sometimes  thefe are payoffs for staying ill:  the attention you receive, the  way ypu can avoid other things  in life tf you are in pain or sick.  The safne is true-for breaking  habits by using hypnosis. You  must wafy to break the habit.  .Hypnosis may also be used  for fun* said Dr. Hunter, "This  has a verj%ood effect on y0urjtr  general health, because you are^  paying attention to yourself for  a little time each day. The body  is very relaxed, but the mind  keeps going, but not in the same  way as it does when you're  under stress."  Children, who are the best of  all hypnosis subjects, generally  love to use the technique. It is  very useful to help with night  terrors, bed-wetting, and 'bad'  habits,   such   as   nail-biting.  Dr. Hunter's book is  available at the Book Store,  Cowrie Stree, Sechelt.  wmxmiWW$#^xM&^M  vblish&d  <ur choice.  H.ZO  ���ikun%^.ont6ct sbeeh,  ��*Z,-ib&r3>  M^Ss  ���m.

Jardine  October 31,1984        Secretary Treasurer  ^rt-*wj��.!       \  rence  by Peggy Connor  The B.C. Association of  Hospital Auxiliaries held their  Lower Mainland Area Conference on Wednesday, October  17, at the Hazelmere Golf anci  Country Club,;  The area representativei  Pauline Lamb, past president  for St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliary co-ordinating council, was  chairman.  The theme for the conference  was preventative medicine.  Speaker, was Trudy Lockhead  on holistic health. It was suggested it would be a good idea  ,to lobby for Holistic doctors to  be listed with the Canadian  Medical Association.  The afternoon speaker was a  very entertaining Mel Cooper,  president of CFAX radio in  Victoria. He stated that  volunteerism is B.C.'s third industry and firmly believes that  the miracle drug is a smile. See  yourself in a positive position,  quit worrying about things that  never happen and use the energy  of humour. He was a very  energetic, uplifting speaker and  interspersed his talk, with some  good Newfie jokes. He was  born in Newfoundland and like  the rest of the people from that  part of Canada enjoys a good  laugh on himself.  There were auxiliary  members from 14 hospitals in  the Lower Mainland. A total of  269, the largest representation  from Peace Arch Hospital with  55 members present, St. Mary's  Hospital Auxiliary Sunshine  Coast had 14 attending.  This was the final meeting to  be held by Pauline Lamb as  area representative, she has  done a grand job in her position  and was well received by those  present*. .-.'."-  Welcome was extended by  Mayor Gordon Hogg, city of  White Rock and Mrs. Vicki  Curtis, chief executive officer,  Peace Arch District Hospital.  Bringing greetings and the  budget for the area approval  was Mrs. Merilyn Pearson,  President, BCAHA.  Auxiliary members were well  mixed up so that each one sat  with at least seven people from  different hospitals, a good exchange of ideas.  Foster homes  still needed  The ministry of human  resources needs a variety of  houses for its children in care.  .An effort is made to match the  needs ol the child, or children if  there are siblings, to what a  family has to offer. Such factors as age, geographic location  and lifestyles are considered to  minimize the disruption in the  foster child's life.  Single adults who have  special training or experience  working with children may have  something to offera handicapped child needing interisiyp)Care  and training. However, ifiVmost  instances, children are placed  with experienced parentsMwho  have children of their >pwn so  that Ihe foster child can experience the .give* and take of  normal family Hfc.ff M  - n  loster;parentssaythat taking  a foster child into their home  has an impact on their own  family. Whether this impact is  positive of negative depends on  whether they were realistically  prepared for fostering.  They all agree that it is a  family commitment. It is not  enough for mom alone to want  to foster. Dad and the children  need to be part of the decision  too. When the marriage relationship is stable and mutually  supportive and the children  secure enough to accept a foster  sibling, fostering can be a  rewarding and growing experience for the whole family.  A   foster   father   reported  proudly that when his foster son  started  to sob  uncontrollably  the first night  he spent with  'them it has his four year old son  who finally succeeded in consoling and reassuring the unhappy-  boy. Other foster parents found  that sharing their life with a  foster child brought the family  together ;as   they   learned   to  discuss problems more openly  Sand to co-operate and make the  rneeessary ad just ment s._  ''^Fttster 'pa��e'1fs * who "'' a'vail  themselves of the training programs^ offered   through   the  ministry of human resources or  the Foster Parents Association  find their parenting skills improve and there are definite  gains for their family life.

A MESS A GE FROM THE  SUNSHINE COAST TEACHERS'S ASSOCIATION Coast News, Novembers, 1984  Community' mMst get m  On October 29, Dr. Douglas  K. Jardine was on hand at  Capilano College in Sechelt to  disucss ideas and receive suggestions from the community on  the subject bf post-secondary  education on the Sunshine  Coast. There was an encouraging turn-out to meet the doctor  in a friendly and informal atmosphere..  Dr. Jardine, Dean of Instructions Services Division, made it  clear that the board (of  Capilano College) is "definitely  attempting not to reduce  resources available to the  satellite centres, such as Sechelt  and Squamish". There have  been some cuts in instructional  services and in counselling, but  not in the areas of career and  academic studies. Dr. Jardine  did point out that these  resources were not large in the  first place, but the decision to  avoid cuts has been taken in the  face of financial pressure.  Among the courses and programs discussed were several involving high school students; in  the spring an Introductory  Psychology course is being considered for students still in high  school but with an ability to  take on a first year'university  course. According to Dr. Jardine, principal June Maynard  from Chatelech has several such  "precocious" students in her  school and she is in favour of  the idea.  fcrilMMMlMabrf4hAv^hl4(alUteriHIHi^Mw.HftAtU*MMMH|Ute  JlNtMMM �������� ���     ������ Tlfflll rfi Wtfl Hi TIB  it     ���������!

Janet Morris, Dr. Jardine's  assistant, spoke to the Coast  News after the dean's departure, stressing the importance of  the college's participation in the  community; "We must be accessible to the public to educate  them in what we can offer.  Unless the community comes to  us to tell us what they want, we  can't offtr '* ltXs a co-operative  effort, a two-way street; the  public has to help us to help  them. We feel that we (the community college) work with and  for the community."  One service available to the  community is the library which,  in addition tp the books at the  Sechelt college, has access to the  considerable i resources of the  central Capilano College. There  is a catalogue on micro-fiche,  simple to operate and considerably more efficient than the  older systems which had the  disadvantage of occupying a  greal deal of space. The books  are primarily of a reference and  non-fictional nature, so as not  to conflict with the services of  the municipal libraries.

"We need  ���a fair break."  M But, the law does not, grant  permission for 'one time only'  Sunday openings. The only way  feechelt stores can remain open  the Sunday before Christmas  Spr any special Sunday - is for  voters in a public referendum to  vote in favour of granting stores  flie option of remaining open on  all Sundays. Such a referendum  Question will be asked on the  Drop off your  COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIEDS  at  Books & Stuff  in Sechelt  until noon Saturday  "A Friendly P��opl�� Place"  ballot of Sechelt's November 17  municipal election.  "None   of   us   wants   to  regularly be open on Sunday,"  said   Morgan   Thompson   of  Morgan's   Men's   and   Boys'  . Wear. "Everyone else is getting  a shorter work week; the last  thing we need is a longer one."  That   doesn't   mean   that  someone might not decide to  open every Sunday somewhere  down   the   line,   noted   Kay  Bailey, "but I haven't talked to  anyone yet who wants to." Mrs.  Bailey   circulated   a   petition  among merchants on Sechelt's  main   streets,   and   got   67  signatures in favour of having  the option to remain open. The  petition and a letter expressing  similar   sentiments   from   the  Trail Bay Merchants' Association, as well as the support of  the chamber of commerce, have  been forwarded to the village  council.  Stressing that merchants really only want to be able to remain open the Sunday before  Christmas, Mrs. Bailey added,  "When do you go fishing if you  work on Sunday?"  ��� MISC SERVICES ���  Incumbents, Area F Director  John Shaske and Area D Director Brett McGillivray and newly  electeUArea B Director Peggy  Connpr were all elected by acclamation to the Sunshine Coast  Regional District board.  None of the electees are happy aboiit the lack of competition; Director Shaske says it is  hard to Know just what the electors are thinking and hopes that  the peoplfe will come out at  APC meetings to make their  views knpwn. Director  McGillivray "makes the point  that it is impossible to ten  whether the lack of challenge is  due to satisfaction with the  directors or du�� to apathy.  "Competition for ijffice makes  V  the people aware of what's happening in the community and  local government," he said.  Peggy Connor, elected as  Area B director, shares the  views held by her co-directors  on this situation. "I'd far  sooner have had an election,"  she said to the Coast News, "it  is important to give the people a  choice. However, I'm very glad  to be back on the board, and I'll  certainly be curtailing most of  my other activities to devote my  time and energy to the regional  board."  Mrs. Connor's alternate  director is Andrew Steele, who  also served as Pat Murphy's  alternate during his term of office.  Seniors to get  rezoning  Following a public hearing  last Tuesday, Sechelt's Planning  Committee will recommend that  council approve a zoning  change from Residential 1 (Rl)  to Public Assembly 1 (PU1) for  the land immediately north of  the Arts Centre, at Trail Avenue  and Medusa Street, on which  the Sechelt Senior Citizens'  Association plans to build its  new hall.  Two neighbouring residents  expressed concern at the hearing  regarding increased noise and  traffic during functions held at  the proposed hall. Potential,  problems with drainage and  run-off from a large asphalt  parking area were also raised,  and planning committee chairman Harvey Bist noted that  culverts would eventually be  needed.  But generally there was little  opposition and strong support  for the rezoning which will give  the go-ahead to what Seniors'  Association president Len  Herder calls "the biggest thing  to hit Sechelt yet!" Conceptual  plans for the seniors' hall show  a two-story building with a  drop-in centre, large workshop  with electrical equipment, large  craft room and storage area,  board room, games room and a  300-seat main hall with a full-  size stage and dressing rooms.  With plans still open to revision, association members are  continuing to pursue fund-  raising options for the estimated  $300,000 to $400,000 facility.  Sechelt council is expected to  accept the rezoning recommendation at its regular meeting this  Wednesday, which would result  in a revision of the official  Sechelt Community Plan to  reflect the change.

V7M2H4. #45  The drug problem  The drug culture is generally  low key and secretive due to it's  illegal aspect yet it is widespread  in our /society. Drugs are  available in abundance in high  schools and recent information  shows that it has reached  �� elementary school level, as low  "  as grade five.  Not only is marihuana readily  available but all other types of  drugs as well. These drugs are  fairly expensive and for the  younger crowd imposssible to  purchase on a weekly allowance  or earnings from a paper route  h|Or part-time job. To afford the  ^purchase of drugs, users can sell  clothing or belongings in order  to support a habit. Users can  steal, commit break-ins or sell  the drug to support their habit.  The user will tend to frequent  places where drugs are likely to  be available. They may spend  unusual amounts of time by  themselves. They may be unable  to keep a job or stay in school.  They reject old friends and take  up hew ones, usually other drug  users like themselves.  Frequent traffic to and from  a particular house may also be  an indication that drugs are being bought and sold there. On  the Sunshine Coast, major importation of drugs has taken  place and for some people, it is  the basis of their income.  Police powers regarding the  enforcement of our drug laws  involve the powers of Search  and Seizure.  The peace officer may search  any person or place other than a  dwelling house arid may seize  any narcotic that he finds: A  warrant on sufficient information can be obtained to search a  dwelling house and anything  found may be seized by the office including drug paraphenalia  and proceeds resulting from the  sale of drugs. All that is needed  by the authorities regulating the  officer is reasonable and probable grounds that a narcotic is  present in the dwelling house.  Should a person be found in  possession of a narcotic, he will  be arrested, fingerprinted arid  photographed under authority  of the identification of criminals  act and released for an appearance in court. Depending  on the circumstances of the case  or the particular situation of the  accused, he may be held in-jail  until such a time as he can appear in court.  Canadian law considers drug  offenses to be very serious ones  and the more involved a person  gets in drugs, the more serious is  the crime.  Drugs sold by pushers whose  only concern is the money they  will make are often cut or  diluted with substances that  may cause more harm to the  user than the drug itelf. Misinformation on the actual  strength of a drug sold by a  pusher can have serious ill ef  fects on the user.  Peer pressure plays a largfc  role in the use of drugs by  young people. Many are pushed  into drug use in order to gain  social acceptance.  If you want more informa;-  tion on drugs, do not hesitate to  contact your local RCMP  detachment. They have on hand  several pamphlets dealing with  the subject of drugs.  Any adult or student group  wishing to have a presentation  made on the topic of drug use  and abuse can do so with the  assistance of the local RCMP J  Anyone wishing to provide local  police with information that  could assist them in the enforcement of drug laws, is welcome  to do so. All information thus  given is strictly confidential.  Please write to us. Letters  need not be signed. Write Our  Town, Box 460, Gibsons, B.C.:  Sechelt voices  EDC support  Sechelt council has voiced its  strong support for continuing  the office of the Economic  Development Commission.  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District must soon decide  whether it will assume 100 per  cent responsibility for providing  the office's $110,000 annual  budget. 1985 will be the first  year that no provincial funding  will be available to assist with  costs.  "The commission has served  its purpose, and without it a lot  of projects which have been  started around here wouldn't be  happening," stated Alderman  Ken Short.  "Some people think there  have been no concrete results,"  said Mayor Joyce Kolibas, "but  I don't agree with that. I would  vote for it."  "Commissioner Oddvin  Vedo has done an exemplary  job of attracting business people  to the area, and a lot of other  groups have emanated from the  EDC," added Alderman  Harvey Bist. "Without the  commission there would be no  focus for organization. Its peor  pie have been working on ah  economic development plan;  and without that we can pull the  plug on the whole thing."

Send your entries to the  Coast News, Box 460, Gibsons. Last week's winner was Deane  Gentry, General Delivery, Roberts Creek who correctly located the  secretarial bird across from Crowe Road on Highway 101.   ���  bleak future  A three page engineer's  report on Sechelt's drainage  situation from Medusa Street to  the marsh has convinced  Sechelt's planning committee  that the marsh's resident  beavers must go.  The report by engineer Derek  Ashford stated that Sechelt's  drainage ditches "must be  maintained scrupulously," and  recommended that a weir be  built in the marsh at Wharf  Road to prevent the back-up of  water from Porpoise Bay into  the marsh. It also stated that the  beaver dam in a drainage ditch  was causing a back-up of water, .  and that council could be found  negligent if if allowed the dam  to remain and flooding occured.  Ashford's report also noted,  however, that even if drainage  ditches were widened and the  weir built, lower Medusa  flooding could still be a reality if  there was "the worst rain in 101  years." Medusa Street is the  lowest elevation in the village,  and the catch basin at Medusa  and Trail gets water from ail the  surrounding areas.  "We do have a serious  drainage problem in the  village," Alderman Harvey Bist  told the Coast News.' He noted  the old and often undersized  drainage pipes, some of which  may have collapsed, and the  major expense involved in  replacing them.  Meanwhile back at the  marsh, the beavers recently  moved from their home on the  island into a broken culvert  under Wharf Road, but it looks  like they shouldn't settle in too  comfortably. The committee  will recommend to council this  Wednesday that the beavers be  moved to a more suitable site  and that the wildlife branch be  asked to undertake the task.  Growing public concern over  the state of education in British  Columbia was given a sharper  focus recently.   ' M������-.  Wednesday, October 24, was.  declared a province-wide Day of  Concern by the Defend Education Services Coalition (DESC).  Throughout B.C. educators,  education support workers,  students and "their parents  publicly voiced their concerns  about where the restraint  policies of the provincial  government are leading the  education, system.  Those concerns were aptly  summed up earlier by Jim  Matkin, president of the B.C.  Employers' Council, who said  he felt like the man who sees the  house burning down.  (Matkin was elaborating on a  statement he had made earlier  that public expenditure in  education is one expenditure  that cannot be restrained.  Educational restraint is a  mistake.)  Nonetheless, restraint is a  crushing reality for education  institutions at all levels in B.C.  Everywhere we see cuts in the  educational opportunities for  our young people, says Jack  Finnbogason, president of the  B.C. College-Institute- Educators Association and spokesperson for DESC.  Our young people won't be  able to earn their way into the  future.  Some of the reasons for  public concern:  Only one British Columbia  child in 10 will go on to a post-  secondary education. That proportion is only one-third of the .  participation rate in the United  States and one-fourth of  Japan's. Only seven per cent of  Sunshine Coast students will go  to post-secondary institutions.  Six thousands students, who  registered initially at B.C.'s  three universities, have failed to  show up for classes, according  to. Janet Laxton of the Canadian Federation of Students.  Probable reasons: "They can't  afford to attend. They have no  guarantee that the courses they  want will be available, and they  hesitate to take on a $20,000  Focus on the gifted  The teachers of School  District #46 were, fortunate to  have as their keynote speaker at  the professional development  day, October 31, Ms Sandra N.  Kaplan, Associate Director of  the National State Leadership  Training Institute on the Gifted  and Talented in Los Angeles,  California.  Ms Kaplan, who is the author  of several books, spoke of the  gifted child, how to recognize  such children and what kind of  programs should be developed  to fulfil their needs. "No one  can be successful unless his/her  abilities are recognized...Our  job is to recognize potential and  help translate potential into performance, and through practice  to extend the child's ability,"  said Ms Kaplan.  Another aspect of education  discussed during the day was  improving the effectiveness of  instruction in the classroom.  Mr. John Nicholson, Assistant  Director of Schools, had opened the proceedings with a  welcoming address which included the message that  "teaching does make a difference. '   .  He also had some good news  from the ministry of education  which has made available funding and incentives for a gifted  child  program  Skelly slams Socreds  Continued from page 1  Socreds," said Skelly, "but only that the business of government can be conducted in a  civilized and orderly manner.  Predicting a provincial election in May of 1986 - 'before the  Expo bubble bursts', Skelly  called for the restoration of  confidence in the province and  the lowering of confrontation as  well as the wise investment of  public money.  "We in the- NDP must  develop clear alternative policies  and articulate them in concrete  terms. We lost the last election  because Bennett succeeded in  scaring people into voting  Socred. We must show the people of B.C. that they have  nothing to fear from us."  Skelly, who was introduced  by MLA Don Lockstead,  answered . questions about the  export of logs and the NDP  position on Central America,  among other topics.  On log export, he pointed out  that the provincial government  collects $1.76 per cunit stump-  age fee but that it costs more  GARRY COTTER, licensed denturist  has now joined  The Gibsons Dontal Clinic  New office hours: Mon., Wed., and Fri., 8:30 - 4  For appointment please call 886-2712  GIBSONS DENTAL CLINIC  207 Cedar Plaza, Hwy 101, Gibsons  than $4 tp replace the tree, and  then the logs are being exported  whole with subsequent further  loss of employment for this province.  "We cannot survive as a  mature economy by shipping  out whole logs. It is a fool's  game," said Skelly.  On the question of Central  America, Skelly was confident  that, despite some recent policy  statements by federal leader Ed  Broadbent, the NDP at its upcoming policy meeting in Ottawa would reaffirm its support  for the principle of letting Central America solve its own problems.  Skelly's brother, federal MP  Ray Skelly, was unable to attend the meeting, being part of  the Canadian contingent attending the funeral of Indira Gandhi in. India. The contingent was  to stop over in Ethiopia on the  way home on a fact-finding  mission concerning the mass  starvation reported from that  country.  debt load with no certainty of  future employment."  Colleges have seen 250 full-  time faculty fired, tuition fees  rise from 15 to 50 per cent, two  institutions closed, and a  dramatic decrease in vocational  training. Says Finnbogason: "If  the provincial government does  not pass on the increased  federal funds for post-  secondary education, the youth  of B.C. will have the slimmest  opportunity in Canada to increase their marketable skills."  There are 1,441 fewer  teachers in B.C.'s public schools  today than there were last June.'  Elective subjects have been cut,  core programs in Math and  English are overcrowded. For  , the first time since the early 70's  students are crammed into  rooms designed for smaller  classes. Says Elsie McMurphy,  first vice-president of the B.C.  Teachers' Federation, "We  can't afford this 1930's education for children who will live in  the twenty-first century."  The physical environment of  schools is deteriorating. "Safety  is compromised by cuts in  street-crossing guards,  playground supervision and  maintenance," says Owen  Dykstra, B.C. president of the  Canadian Union of Public  Employees, which represents  many school support workers.  The morale of those, and  they are mostly low-paid  women, who work in the educa  tion system is threatened.  "They have seen their working  conditions and their purchasing  power eroded year by year,"  says Ted Byrne of the Association of University and College  Employees, Local 1. "Worse,  they face an increasing  workload, and stress has led to  a majOr increase in sick leave."  DESC members throughout  B.C. handed out pamphlets and  lapel ��� badges last Wednesday,  held public forums in some centres, appeared on radio and  television talk shows, held  meetings with parents, school  trustees and college board  members.
