Array LEGISLATiVE: LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  VICTORIA, B.C.  V8V 1X4  8S,4  Norwegians invest  by B J Benson  Tidal Rush Farm, Nelson Island, was host to both a CBC Country  Canada film crew and to several groups of potential investors and  other interested parties. The tours were arranged by Economic  Development Commissioner, Oddvin Vedo and were a great success  despite the inclement weather. Here one group views some of the sea  pens containing hundreds of salmon in various stages of  development.  ���Dianm.1 Kvans photo  An important new business  for the aquaculture industry in  B.C. and one which will help  establish the Sunshine Coasi as  the centre of west coast  aquaculture has begun setting  up operation on Field Road in  Wilson Creek.  After a year of research and  negotiation, Scantech Resources  Ltd., a joint venture between  local residents Cafsten Hagen,  Clarke Hamilton, Bernt Rindt  and the Norwegian firm of  Jamek A.S. has bought the  building previously occupied by  Permaseal Glass on Field Road  plus five acres of waterfront  property in Egmont. Though  the firm's plans arc still being  formulated, the Field Road property will house the corporate  offices and provide space to  warehouse the aquaculture  equipment and fish Iced they  will be distributing. The Egmont location will be used for  ice manufacturing, feed  distribution, and a possible fish  processing  plant,   including  a  smoking operation.  In an interview with the Coast  News, Mr. Hagen, president of  the company stated that their  partner, Jamek A.S. is considered one of Norway's largest;  aquaculture v equipment  manufacturers and a leader in  developing Norway's fish farming technology. It co-sponsors  an experimental fish farm with  the government in Bergen, Norway. Jamek is capable of supplying all a fish farm's equipment requirements right on  down to the computers and  software to control and monitor  the operation. Jamek's line.of  equipment, systems and personnel will be available to B.C.'s  aquaculture industry through  Scantech Resources 'Ltd.  Scantech is currently planning to set up a model experimental fish farm on the  Sunshine Coast this spring  similar to Jamek's in Norway.  Long term plans include the  local manufacture of equipment  items that can be produced  economically.  Please turn to page 16  Sechelt Indian Band  Self-government a reality soon  by Dianne Evans  Chief Stan Dixon, back from  a lobbying trip to Ottawa earlier  this month, may be off again at  the end of the week to meet with  the minister of Indian Affairs,  David Crombie, and to be at the  House of Commons when a  legislative package is presented  for first and second readings,  on January 25, if all goes well.  "We think we've, done  everything-u^^  tm| ready," said Dixon in a  conversation   with   the   Coast  News "and now it's in the  hands of the minister. It's up to  him to make this a reality by the  end of the month."  The package, which is  presently being scrutinized by  both the Sechelt Indian Band  (SIB) lawyer and a lawyer from  the justice department, includes  everything that must go through  special legislation, so that once  it is passed, it may be enshrined  in the SIB constitution. All  other changes may be broTight  through orders in council, said  Dixon.  Cruise protest  by Ken Dalgleish  On Tuesday, January 15, the  United States flew a B52  bomber over Canada to test the  latest development in the  nuclear arms race, the cruise  missile. Across Canada small  groups came together, huddling  around bonfires of protest to  signal that Canadians will not  easily be swept along with  Reagan's program of nuclear  confrontation.  At Davis Bay, people of the  Sunshine Coast gathered at a  fire which cast long shadows  over the sand. Most had heard  of the vigil only hours before,  yet dozens of families joined  together to share their fears and  concerns for the future.  In a solemn fireside discus  sion it was decided that war is a  condition that has existed  throughout history because certain myths and unfounded fears  were promoted and that to  come to a position where this  continual cycle of war could be  broken, these myths must be  destroyed.  One by one the people  around the circle put forward  their thoughts on the nature of  the myths that lead mankind to  war. These were listed, along  with the rationale that can  dispel each one. At the close of  the evening a copy of the list  was burned as a symbol to show  that the reasons, ideas and  justifications for man heading  for a final nuclear doom can be  destroyed.  After passjng first and second  readings in the House of Commons, the package will go back  to the special Committee of Indian Self Government, and then  back once again to the House  for third reading, after which it  goes to the Senate for final approval.  Dixon sees a finalization of  the SIB constitution and a tying  up of all the loose ends coming  in 18 to 24 months.  �� -"What we are/doirig,?J hfc explained, "is breaking away  from the Indian Act, so that we  can run our lives under our own  constitution. When that happens, funding arrangements for  the SIB won't cost the taxpayers  another cent. We will generate  our own funding, through  managing our own land," he  continued, "and we'll also have  control over our membership.  Right now, Ottawa tells us  who's an Indian and who isn't,  but we think we should be able  to to that."  There is considerable support  from both opposition Indian  Affairs critics, Jim Manly for  the NDP and Keith Penner for  the Liberals, as well as from the  Mulroney government, and this  will clear the way for a quick  passage through the House and  Committee.  A crew from CTV has been in  \ Sechelt this past week filming in  the village and interviewing  council and members of the  community. The program  should be aired this week on  { CTV news.  Cr The SIB move to self-  i government is the first of its  y-kind in the country. In Quebec  r#<?he .^mpve. to. self-gpyepiment.  'took 12 years and was initiated  by the government. In the case  of the SIB, the Band itself  began the struggle for  autonomy, and now that the  end is in sight, feelings are running high.  "We'll have to have a Sunshine Coast holiday," said Dixon, "it's a good reason to  celebrate." He sees the SIB as  becoming a partner with other  municipal bodies here on the  Coast, in a relationship such as  exists between present local  government bodies, and he does  not have much time for those  bands who seek sovereignty.  "We are Canadians," he said,  "we'll fly our own flag, the flag  of the province and we'll fly the  Maple Leaf as well."  Salmon Shark (previously known as the Dog Fish) logo contest  judges, Alex Bowie, Bill Copping and Paul Herberman pondered  over the entries for one and a half hours last week before deciding on  the winners. They were all from Pender Harbour secondary and in  order of ranking are: Cheree Cochet, Darrin Jordinson, Danny  Richardson, Eric Phillips, Diana Bryant and Loree Villeneuve. As  prizes, Cochet and Jordinson will be taken on an aerial tour of the  coast while all six will be taken on a boat tour of the Nelson Island  fish farms. The event was organized by the Sunshine Coast Tourism  Assocation. -��.iBe���s<.i.,.h��i,.  EDC meets  Funds approved  by B J Benson  Teachers wait for  Peck decision  A protest bonfire at Davis Bay attracted a large crowd last Tuesday  evening to register opposition to the testing of a Cruise missile in  Canadian air-space. -wanne Kvans photo  Bert Slater, of the Sunshine  Coast Teachers' Association,  (SCTA) is angry and frustrated  at the current state of teachers'  salaries. In a conversation with  the Coast News, Slater, who is  the chairperson of the SCTA  bargaining team, corrected a  report which had appeared in  last week's Coast News which  said that the arbitration board  had agreed that the school  board had demonstrated its inability to pay any increase in  wages.  "The final budget will not be  established until May," he said,  "so the board has not proven its  inability to pay because it is only  working on budget projections.  "We had to go to arbitration," he continued,  "because we were bound to do  so by law, when we failed to  agree on salaries, back in  November. The arbitrator was  Davie Fulton, (ex-judge and ex-  Troy MP with the Diefenbaker  administration) and he gave extra attention to the province's  restraint program.  "As well as that," Slater  went on, "the arbitrators have  to give paramount importance  to the employer's ability to pay.  Even after that, and even after  considering traditional factors,  he was able to award a three per  cent raise to the teachers of  School District #46. We had  asked for 4.5 per cent, bearing  in mind that we haven't had a  pay increase for three years  now." The results of this ar  bitration are binding, but, says  Slater. "Now we have to wait  on compensation commissioner  Peck's ruling. All pay claims  from the public sector have to  go through him. His job," explained Salter," is to keep  public sector wages down to a  minimum. He could easily overturn the binding decision reached through arbitration."  Slater sees the situation as  very    frustrating    for   both  teachers   and    boards.

This special issue, containing letters from prisoners around the world whose cases  have been taken up by this organization, shows how taking  action can have lasting, and positive effects.  Letters and appeals from around the world give real support and assistance to those prisoners, as their letters so  poignantly describe. A Latin American prisoner  writes,..."For eight months I had my hands and feet tied.  "On Christmas Eve, the door to my cell opened and the  guard tossed in a crumpled piece of paper. It said simply  'Constantio, do not be discouraged; we know you are alive.'  It was signed 'Monica' and had the Amnesty International  candle on it. Those words saved my life and my sanity. Eight  months later I was set free."  The freedoms of speech, religious worship and political affiliation are freedoms we often take for granted in our society; we are not thrown into jail without trial or kept under  house arrest or executed for the colour of either our skins or  our politics and it is sometimes hard to remember that there  are tens of thousands of our fellow human beings in prison or  in lonely graves all over the world for these very reasons.  Until we can truly believe that all of us share basic rights,  that all of us are born of woman, live our lives to love, laugh,  cry, to search for a measure of happiness, there can be no  understanding between nations. As long as we allow our differences to barricade us each against the other we can never  know peaceful and trusting co-existence.  We would do well to remember that the aberrations of the  human spirit that give rise to torture and brutality are not  bound by international borders. There are oppressors  everywhere and until we realize that none of us are free until  all of us are free, there will be no end to war or suffering.  We can no longer look at the world as a collection of. tiny  parts, each one separate and apart from the whole; this has  become a world where distance means little in terms of communication , and the things that threaten us we must face  together.  There are people who need to know that someone cares  about them and their right to live their lives as they see fit. We  must be staunch in our opposition to the violation of human  rights no matter where they occur and insist that our governments choose the path that, while not always politically expedient, is compassionate and recognizes the dignity of every  human being. That is our responsibility, the price we must  pay for our own freedom.  by Dianne Evans  Those persons who moved over oceans and across continents to a new  world and a new way of life were always a selective part of a country's  population. Even this selective group was made up of still more selective  sub-groups of varying reasons for their moves. One more or less identifiable type of being gravitated to the Pacific North-West, in part at  least, because of ideas that permeated the very air. Writers such as Edwin Arlington Robinson brought the common man not only into  literature, but into universal philosophy. At a time that reading was  becoming available to members of the working class in much of the  world, what they could find to read seemd to give them a place in the ply  of things. Jack London, on the one hand, appealed to a romantic element  in stories such as "Call of the Wild"; on the other hand, "The Iron  Heel" cried out against what London felt to be the oppression of city factory conditions. Many rovers who immigrated into the far West brought  with them their attraction to their romantic conception of wilderness life.  With no thought of destroying any part of society, they came determined  to play their part in shaping a new world.  Howe Sound Women's Institute visit to the Charles .Wigand home,  Brigade Bay, Gambier Island, 1935. Helen McCall photo. Caption by  L.R. Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  "Well, Jake, what lies ahead  in 1985?"  Jake and I were sitting in his  cabin by the wood stove and we  were enjoying a glass or two of  mulled cider, drawn from a  laige pot half full of same which  sat atop the stove. It was my  first visit of the new year, hence  the question.  "The only absolute I can  see," said Jake, "is the absolute  certainty of the unexpected.  Whatever happens you can be  sure it will take us by surprise  and if anything turns out for the  best it will be despite our leaders  and not because of them."  "You give them very little-  credit, Jake," said I.  "No less than they deserve.'  Take the economy, for example. In both Ottawa and Victoria the governments are doing  exactly what the economy does  not need and for a fairly obvious fundamental reason."  I helped myself to another  ladle full of mulled cider and  settled back comfortably in my  chair. The oldtimer seemed in  good form. He had a glint in his  eye and a splendid new sweater  on his back and he seemed as  ready to take on the world for  another year as I had ever seen  him. I took a pull of my cider.  "Explain, Jake," I invited.  "It's quite simple," said  Jake. "Both the federal Conservatives and the Socreds in Victoria are looking to the rich to  save the day. They both are  courting the multi-national corporations in the hopes that the  investments they might deign to  make in this country will solve  all of our problems. It's what  John   Kenneth   Galbraith   has  Surprise ahead?  called, and I have quoted  before, the horse and sparrow  theory of economics. Give the  horse r the multi-nationals  -enough oats to eat and they'll  leave enough on the pavement  to sustain the sparrows - that's  you and me, the Canadian  people."  "What's wrong with that,  Jake? Where else are you going  to find investment if not from  the folks who have the  money?"  "We all have a little money  and the desire to make a little  more," said Jake. "At least, we  normally do. Right now in B.C.  ^there's more money stashed  away out of fear than ever  before in history. If we would  get that circulating normally  about 80 per cent of the problem would be solved. But  neither Mulroney nor Bennett  have grasped the fact that it is  the worker who creates the  wealth. The rich just hoard it. If  you like, the sparrow has more  to do with the spreading of seed  and the growing of oats than  does the horse."  "Sounds like heresy to me,  Jake," I said.  "It's only heresy to the conventional wisdom which  misleads us today," said Jake.  "All this palaver ' from  Mulroney about free trade and  from Bennett about free  economic zones is a bunch of  hogwash. The way to wealth is  to put Canadians to work, to  get Canadians to invest in their  own future, not to run around  cap in hand waiting for someone else to invest and take the  profits.  . "It is generally overlooked  that this country year after year  has a gigantic trade surplus. We  are in constant economic trouble because of the profits and  dividends in the hundreds of  billions that are siphoned off by  foreign ownership. To listen to  Bennett and Mulroney you'd  never think that anyone had invited foreign capital in before.  In fact that has been the chosen  way for almost the whole of this  century. And look where we  are.  "Put that together with the  fact that there aren't great gobs  of capital waiting around to be  invited to Canada. In fact, the  Amercian trade deficit is so  chronic and so huge that some  foresee America the great being  a havenot nation by the end of  the century and the Japanese  yen becoming the world's  strongest currency long before  that.  "Nobody invests without anticipation of a profit and the  Canadian malaise, which may  be incurable by the way, cannot  be cured by more exports of  profits and dividends. We have  to harness our financial  resources, put them to work,  and keep the proceeds circulating at home.  "And then," said Jake,  opening the door and sticking  some more wood in the stove,  "take the fact that statistics tell  us that all of the job creation  for the past five years has been  done by small business as the  large corporations lean to more  and more automation, and you  tell me why the Conservatives  and the Socreds are giving all  the breaks to the big foreign  companies while continuing to  milk and squeeze the smaller  Canadians firms that are actually hiring more people now than  five years ago despite the constant mistreatment they get from  their governments. You tell me  what credit Mulroney and Bennett deserve for their misguided  and damaging efforts."  "There are those who say  that pessimists such as you are  the problem with the economy,  Jake" said I.  "There are those fools who  march in step with the conventional wisdom and as they sink  deeper and deeper into the bog  believe they can escape by blowing on their bugle as they are  sinking. To such as those, the  man standing nearby on dry  ground pointing out that they  are sinking is an infuriating  spectacle indeed. If he's right,  then they must be very stupid  and they would rather blow  their bugle till they sink from  view before they'd consider that  possibility," said Jake.  "But history does not depend  on the self-appointed gurus. It  depends on the wisdom and the  energy of the people. We are  social creatures and we learn  from each other and we sustain  ourselves by co-operation with  each other. That is a timeless  truth. The Mulroneys and the  Bennetts won't save the day, if  the day is to be saved, it will be  the people - if and when they  wake up to their own  possibilities. May 1985 belong  to the people."  And Jake lifted his cup of  mulled cider and drained it.  "Not let's have a game of  crib, if you can still remember  how to play."  Maryanne's    viewpoint  Tale of three kingdoms  by Maryanne West  Once upon a time there were  three kingdoms. Two, though  opposites in almost every way  -political persuasion, culture,  geographical and historical  backgrounds - were nevertheless  frighteningly alike in their  distrust of each other: It was a  distrust which amounted to advanced and dangerous paranoia. Both insisted on a  bulwark of satellite states  around their homelands and  were prepared to overrule them  by force if infiltrated by the  other.  Sandwiched between these  two Goliaths was a little David  of a kingdom, geographically  the equal of the others. But,  because of a small population  and resource-based economy it  was unable to wield the  economic clout to be classified  as an "equal" and inevitably  became a satellite of the Goliath  with whom it shared an  unobstructed boundary.  The people who lived in this  little David kingdom were  peaceable folk. They came from  every corner of the world and  tried   to   be   tolerant   and  understanding of the differences  in people. Although some of  them shared the fear of the Red  Goliath felt by their close  neighbour, their government  didn't resort to high flown  rhetoric and tried to toe an independent line.  Things were not going well in  any of the three kingdoms, partly because of the distrust between the two Goliaths and the  billions spent on armaments,  both traditional and nuclear, far  beyond the needs of either for  defence. However many times  over each had the firepower to  destroy the other, neither felt  secure and so continued to add  to their arsenal more and more  sophisticated weaponry. Neither  was able or willing to break out  of the escalating spiral of fear.  What a sad world! With so  much money siphoned to  destructive ends, people in  many countries, including the  Goliaths, went hungry, with  growing numbers of poor  deprived of jobs, of health care,  educational and cultural opportunities and eventually of hope.  Big Brother Goliath kept telling little David to get on track  and update his slingshot and for  some years David prevaricated  until a new government came  in, full of zeal to bring the  slingshot forces up to Goliath's  specifications.  This was where the people of  the little kingdom balked;  they'd never been impressed  with big stick or megaphone  brinkmanship and the country  was proud of its reputation for  peace keeping and effective  diplomacy.  "Hey, just wait a minute,"  they said, "this doesn't make  any sense. Money spent on new  weapons won't fuel our  economy, only Goliath will reap  the benefits; we'll still have  unemployment and hunger and  an even bigger deficit. If we've  got $10 billion let's do  something big for peace instead.  Let's tell Big Brother, 'you've  got more than enough of the big  bang stuff for everyone and it's  made slingshot armies like ours  obsolete anyway. So why don't  we work for peace, not through  strength which we can't afford  but let us work for peace  through understanding'.  "We don't really know our  Red Goliath neighbour; we do  have some super people though  who originally came from there;  they can be fun loving,  energetic, athletic, bright and  wonderful cooks, but most of  what we hear about Red  Goliath comes from sources  contaminated by paranoia.  "Let's use those billions for  friendly penetration of the Red  Goliath fortress," they argued,  "for getting to know each other  at all levels, from school exchange to government missions  - people to people."  All over the David kingdom  people understood that it's no  good waiting for governments  to get on side, they're trad-  tionally slow and in these times  of successive new waves ever  further behind - in this case  they're still playing soldiers circa the Crimean war. The real  danger is FEAR, fear fueled by  lack of communication and  understanding.  So they went to wOrk in every  way they could think of,  however small, to break down  the paranoia their neighbour's  felt for each other and like a  pebble thrown into a pond the  ripples spread out, carrying  messages of friendship and caring around the world. Coast News, January 21,1985  'ollcy, applauded  all for a broader pro-life stance  Editor:  ^hank you for your "Musings"' column "Life after  Btflh", We appreciate both  ySSJ'recognition that abortion  otelemand is wrong and your  c$J�� for   a   broader   pro-life  �����--The pro-life movement in  Canada could be divided 'into  tS��ee related but separate parts:  political, educational and caring, In the nature of the case,  the political and educational  wings of the movement receive  most public attention and this  can lead to the impression that  pro-lifers are concerned only  about the unborn. Relatively little media attention is paid to the  many groups across the country  whose focus is on caring for  both mother and child before  and after birth. For instance,  Christians for Life, a pro-life  group active on the coast, includes in its list of objectives, to:  Promote ministry to the  physical, emotional and  spiritual needs of women with  crisis pregnancies, ministry to  single mothers and counselling  for women who have had abortions.  Speak for and uphold the  rights of the unborn, the mentally and physically handicapped, the infirm, the aged and  any others for whom the value  of life is being questioned.  Co-operate with existing  community groups working in  the issue.  The movement to abolish the  slave trade in 18th and 19th century Britain provides an instructive parallel. For 50 years of his  life William Wilberforce poured  his energies into convincing the  British parliament of the evils of  the slave trade until finally a law  was passed abolishing the trade.  Meanwhile, however, Wilber-  force took an active, though l��ss  publicized, interest in other  social issues of the day such as  the problem of child prostitution and the betterment of  social values in general. But it  was to the abolition of the slave  trade that he gave his life.  Similarly, many pro-lifers today are actively involved in  other issues from child abuse to  world hunger to prison reform  and, yes, even the nuclear arms  race. To deal adequately with  any one issue requires concentration and selectivity. Pro-lifers  do not condemn those who concentrate on issues other than  abortion.  With regard to the specific  concerns raised in your column,  independant studies such as the  Badgley Report and a study  conducted by the Social Services  Let your voices be heard  L ditor:  "As a parent who is active in  school and community activities  1 realize how important it is for  P'OOplc to have a say in local  government and school affairs.  Last Wednesday, January 16,  the executive of the Roberts  Crock Community Association  saw-fit to cancel the January  Association meeting so that  people would be free to attend  ihc Parents' Auxiliary meeting  which was to deal with the important subject of child abuse.  Marie Belle Buhner was on  hand to answer questions on  school board business and there  were to have been several films  on child abuse.  Only nine people attended!  Where do our priorities lie?  What could be more important  than becoming better informed  about this serious problem that  could affect our own children?  The turnout was very disappointing considering the subject  matter and it makes me wonder  if people really care. As it was,  Marie Belle gave us two hours  of her time, discussing the  meeting she had attended with  Don Lockstead and John  Reynolds that day, answering  all our questions thoroughly  and in deptii. Child abuse will  be on a later agenda.  Merchants grateful  Editor:  . We wish to take this opportunity to thank all those persons  who helped us make this past  Christmas season, a brighter  and happier one in Gibsons.  As the help given us to  decorate, plan and prepare the  various events, of the holidays  topk:so many willing hands, it  wquld be foolhardy to attempt"  to: name all those persons who  contributed their time and  energy.  Special thanks must go to  three groups of people though.  Firstly, special applause must be  given the children and staff of  Cedar Grove school, who inspired us so with their beautiful  carolling. Secondly, to the guys  with the "cherry picker" who  People do care  braved the cold and the traffic  in order to install the new coloured bulbs which brightened  our streets and our festive  spirits. Finally, to Gib, who's  infectious Christmas enthusiasm inspired us and who  worked so diligently with us,  decorating and lending his vast  and varying pool of resources to  us. Gib's rare gift.will be sorely*  missed during Christmases to  come as well as during our day  to day lives.  We also wish to thank the  Coast News for the attention  given our special events and for  helping out with our advertising  needs. Your effort helped make  our's an easier one.  Merchants and Businessmen  of Gibsons  Editor:  We are extremely fortunate  to' be living in an area where  people go out of their way to  show they care.  Due to unforeseen circumstances my daughter, Rox-  anne, has had to spend considerable time at Children's  Hospital in Vancouver.  Our   family,    friends,   co  workers and many others have  gone out of their way to show  concern about our well-being.  We have found it a great comfort to know that so many people care, and are there to help  us. We wish to thank you all.  My family and I would also  like to wish everyone the very  best in 1985.

DEALER 7381 SECHELT  None of us want to believe  that anyone we know would  abuse a child, whether it be  physically, mentally, emotionally or sexually, but it does happen. Let's protect our kids as  well as we can by learning how  to recognize the signs of abuse.  Ignorance can only make the  problem worse.  Come on Roberts Creek, let's  not let this apathy set in for the  rest of the year. Get out and let  your voice be heard. Now, more  than ever, we need to have i. say  in what happens in our lives and  the lives of our children.  Diana Zornes  Chairman, RCCA  Department of Vancouver  General Hospital show that the  vast majority of women asking  for abortions have had adequate contraceptive information  - 84.4 per cent according to the  Badgley report. (Pro-lifers incidentally are not opposed to  sex education but to sex education given without reference to  moral values.) Again, while  some women are driven to have  abortions because of economic  hardship, many are not. They  are from white middle-class  backgrounds.  This is simply to point out the  need for specialization if such  widely held assumptions are to  be adequately investigated and  challenged. After all, why has  the abortion rate not gone down  instead of up as contraceptive  information has been increasingly made available to  teenagers? Or if as many tell us  abortion is the answer to child  abuse, why have the child abuse  and abortion rates risen proportionately? Why, according to  studies, are most abused  children wanted at birth?  This is not to say that there  are easy answers or that your  column does not make some  valid points. It is to say that  abortion, child abuse, endemic  poverty, and the nuclear arms  race are all symptoms of a  violent and increasingly selfish  society in which the weak  become the pawns of the strong.  We need to work together to  discover both the causes and the  cures. Thank you again for your  gesture in that direction.  Cameron and Margaret Fraser  Christians for Life  Sechelt, B.C.

Wildlife Club: Gibsons and  District Wildlife Club's annual  election of officers will be held  Wednesday, January 30, at 7:30  p.m. in the clubhouse.  Sechelt Seniors  by Robert Foxall  If you had been at our monthly meeting held on January 17  you would have seen why we are  anxious to get cracking on a  new hall for Branch 69.  As near as could be counted  there were 113 members present  when the meeting was called to  order by president Larry Grafton, for the first meeting of the  year. Also present was Les  Brown of the Canadian Legion  being called by the government  as a Seniors' Forum to discuss  seniors' problems. Unfortunately, for our readers the  meeting will have passed by the  time this is in print. Undoubtedly some of the members will  have been present. It was announced that the 1985  Christmas Dinner would be held  on the second Thursday in  December. Can't say we are not  planning ahead.  There will be a plant sale the  morning of May 4. Start your  plants very shortly.  Arts and crafts will be underway on Thursday mornings  from 10 to 12 and 5-pin bowling  will take place in Gibsons  Fridays at 1:30 p.m.  Bingo will be held second and  fourth Thursdays, cribbage first  and third Tuesdays and Aggravation will be played second  and fourth Tuesdays.  Wood carving lessons under  the guidance of Jan de Bruyn  starting at 10 a.m. February 7.  This course will consist of eight  lessons. Be sure to bring the  necessary piece of cedar and the  equipment outlined earlier.  Ellen Berg reported for the  arts and crafts group who also  are preparing for a busy time  but who would like a few more  volunteers. I am sure they will  show up.  Alice Oulette advised she was  in the midst of arranging a trip  to Seton Villa for February and  in co-operation with the Lions  we will be holding a Reno Night  sometime in February.  It was reported that the New  Year's party had been a success  and would help to buy some  roofing for the new hall. Watch  for the announcement of a  similar party for march 2.  We hope to have final announcements about the new hall  in the near future, but in the  meantime we are keeping  everybody working.  Volunteers  needed  More volunteer drivers are  desperately needed in both Gibsons and Sechelt, to start immediately. The list is down to  the bare minimum and more  help is required to spread the  jobs around.  Drivers transport seniors to  Vancouver for medical appointments or on local trips when  they are unable to use the  Minibus. Patience and a friendly manner are important  qualities for the job. Usually  each person on the list is asked '  to drive once or twice a month.  All mileage and other expenses  are reimbursed.

Actually, the trip is courtesy of  CFUN radio station but they  won it for a joke played on Bernice.  CFUN has been running a  contest for the best suggestion  for a "wake-up call" to a certain person. One of Carol's  eight submissions was a call to  Bernice informing her she'd  been named employee of the  month and would receive such  bonuses as a tour of Gibsons in  a Loomis truck with Bruno  Gerussi! It was actually the disc  jockey making the call but apparently he really had Bernice  strung along.  Carol and Russ go to Amsterdam at the end of February with  24 other pairs of contest winners. They're thrilled of course  and Carol's sister Penny is still  trying to win a chance to go too.  I don't know what Bernice got  out of it except a brief moment  of fame and probably a lot of  razzing from her friends.  GOAT EATEN  It's that same old problem:  dogs. Darlene Delaney of Hall  Road came home from Vancouver last week to find their  goat half-eaten by four dogs.  The pet goat had been penned  up but apparently had been  harassed by the dogs into jumping up onto the chicken coop  and thence into their clutches.  Several people have mentioned they're afraid to walk down  Hall Road because of the dogs.  Several have already been bitten  and other animals in the  neighbourhood have been attacked. Owners are urged to  take responsibility for their dogs  before they're faced with  criminal charges, a civil suit, or  the loss of their pet through someone else's intervention.  LEGION DUES  Roberts Creek Legion and  Ladies' Auxiliary members are  reminded that 1985 dues are  payable. Membership cards are  now in for most of those who  paid before Christmas.  ENTERTAINMENT  WANTED  The Roberts Creek Legion is  looking for weekend entertainment. Phone Marlene Longman  at 886-8548.  BOXING SPACE  In response to the poignant  plea for space by Barry Krangle  and Tony Duffy in last week's  paper, the Roberts Creek Community Association has offered  the Boxing Club the use of the  Community Hall for their  workouts. Ideally though,  they'd like a place where they  could set up a permanent ring so  if you have an unused garage or  other such space available,  please phone Barry at 886-9484  or the Coast News.  "GUYS" BUSY  Local band "Used Guys"  have generously volunteered  their services for a Parents'  Auxiliary dance, tentatively set  for around St. Patrick's Day.  The "Guys" will be playing an  NDP dance at the Community  Hall February 9 and a Valentine's dance at the Roberts  Creek Legion February 15.  LIBRARY REPORT  The Roberts Creek Library  Board held its annual meeting  on January 8. The 1984 financial report showed purchased of  $2,225 worth of new books and  circulation figures indicated that  the membership of 157 families  had borrowed 3,590 adult  books and 2,361 children's  books for a total of 5,951.  The executive for the coming  year includes Moira Richter,  chairperson; Kitty Casey, vice-  chairperson; Gail Cromie,  secretary; Jackie Jardine, vice-  secretary; Mary O'Brien,  treasurer; Rosemary Almond,  vice-treasurer; and Jean Van  Kleek, publicity.

They  wish all the members a Happy  New Year and hours of enjoyable" reading in 1985.  CREEK COURSES  We're always saying we want  to take a night school course but  then we get lazy when it means  going all the way to Gibsons or  Sechelt. However, there's no excuse as a good variety of courses  are offered right in Roberts  Creek if you take a look at Continuing Education's schedule  for this term.  Badminton started last Monday in the school gym but they  may have room for more people. Phone Pat Scarr at  886-2560.

GOOD AND NOT SO GOOD  Good and not so good news  this week is Joe, the bartender,  is taking a break for awhile. Not  so good is there just hasn't been  enough business, that means  money, coming in to keep even  par with the money that has to  go out.  The family has put in long  hours trying to keep their heads  above water, so the good part is  Trudy and Pam will have a rest  or holiday. I can't see Joe  resting, but sometimes a change  is good as a rest. No matter  what, Joe says "We'll be back  and that's a promise."  IN ST. MARY'S  Al Fawson is in St. Mary's.

"Rape assault centres  throughout B.C. have found  that when a woman has been  sexually assaulted it's important  for her to receive emotional  support," says Transition  House co-ordinator Janice  Pentland-Smith. "She needs to  talk to someone who has experience and understanding."  The Transition House offers  three types of assistance. If a  rape victim calls the House, a  staff member will arrange to  take her to the hospital. If the  woman decides to report the  assault to the police, staff will  go with her to the station. If the  victim is afraid to be alone, she  can find temporary shelter at  the House.  "In the past women were  often blamed when these incidents occured," says  Pentland-Smith. "Now that services are more available and  public awareness has changed,  women are coming forward to  discuss experiences they have  kept secret for years." She says  they have been ashamed and  afraid no one would listen.  Transition House staff are  available round the clock to give  support and information to  women who have been  assaulted or are victims of family violence. The service is free.  course is free and will run from  7:30 to 9:30 the one night only.  Next week there's soapstone  carving, French, German,  Spanish, music and movement  for pre-schoolers, adult education upgrading, and teddy bear  making all starting at Roberts  Creek elementary. Dianne  Evans will instruct in fragrance  gardening March 4 and 11 and  there's a film and video festival  planned for International  Women's Day on March 8.

The annual event to raise  funds to help the disabled starts this Friday - so dig deep, -b jBen*>n photo  Mothers9 March  Since its formation in 1952,  the Kinsmen Rehabilitation  Foundation of British Columbia has been one way the  Kinsmen Clubs of the province  have fulfilled their motto of  "serving the community's  greatest needs".  In 1952, the biggest need was  to help people with polio, and  the Kinsmen founded the B.C.  Polio Fund to do it. Over 30  years and a name change later,  the Kinsmen Rehabilitation  Foundation has expanded its  aid to include any physically  disabled person���whether adult  or child���in British Columbia.  The foundation features four  direct service programs that last  year provided free-of-charge  some 5500 services to disabled  citizens of B.C. They try to fill  the gap left by existing services,  and assist those who cannot afford or qualify for help from  other agencies.  The Equipment Loan program supplies basic medical  equipment on a permanent loan  basis, and the Patient Care program can .provide financial  assistance to help with travel arrangements, the cost of braces,  artificial limbs, orthopaedic  shoes and other special needs.  The Disabled Living  Resource Centre features a well-  stocked library of information  about any aspect of disabled living. It also nouses a display of  the, latest in specialized aids  available on the market for  disabled people.  With the introduction of the  computerized databank KRIS  (Kinsmen Rehabilitation Infor  mation System) the information  in the Resource Centre will soon  be available to subscribers  through a micro-computer and  a telephone hook-up. Both the  DLRC and Patient Care departments also provide a referral  service to help find information  or services they cannot supply.  In 1972, the Technical Aids  program began at the KRF. The  age of electronics has witnessed  the use of advanced technology  to help severely disabled people  achieve greater independence.  Environmental controls,  various types of communciation  aids and even computers are  enabling many individuals to attain a higher degree of control  in their lives.  Anyone needing these services can contact their local  Kinsmen Club, hospitals, public  health units or the Foundation's  office at 2256 West. 12th  Avenue, Vancouver, B.C. V6K  2N5.  The annual Kinsmen  Mothers' March is still the main  source of funding for the KRF.  Each year, almost 20,000  volunteers are organized by  Kinsmen and Kinettes to collect  door-to-door in their neighbourhoods around the province  for the money necessary to continue the important work of the  Kinsmen Rehabilitation Foundation.  This . year,   the   Mothers' v  March will be hefd January 25  through   February   4,    1985.  When a neighbour calls at your  door, please give generously.  Thank you.

Heaters  recalled  Owners of waterbed heaters  bearing the trade name "Ther-  malux Model 1000" manufactured by Classic Thermal  Systems in Surrey, B.C., and  purchased between November  6, 1984 and December 18, 1984,  should stop using them immediately.  Canadian Standards Association and the manufacturer advise that these heaters pose a  potential fire hazard.

People often become  depressed after the highs of  Christmas. One great way to  beat the blahs is to try  something new: start up a new  hobby, or take up an old one;.  begin an exercise program,  whether it's aerobics or walking  the dog every day; or enroll in  one of the many adult classes  available. The Continuing  Education bulletin came out  recently, with many interesting  courses.

The course,  "Beyond the Short List", starts  Monday, January 28, 7 p.m. at  Pender   Harbour   secondary,  Help the heart campaign  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  HAVE A HEART  This is an appeal for help,  and it has to do with you and  your heart.

PLANNING  SOCIAL FUNCTIONS  Members and friends of the  Welcome Beach Community  Association are invited to be at  the hall on Wednesday, January  23 at 1 p.m. to discuss and plan  social activities for the next couple of months. Your ideas and  suggestions can be talked about.  If you would like to see some  dinner dances or more sports  activities or can come up with a  good theme for a social evening  your ideas will be most  welcome. Your board of directors are anxious to please the  community but this is hard to  do when you don't really know  what people want. So this will  be a good opportunity to give  some input and perhaps some  original ideas.  SISTERS GET TOGETHER  There has been lots of chatting into the wee small hours in  the Hazel Ellis household for  this past couple of weeks. Hazel  and her four sisters have been  spending a vacation  together  and have finally caught up with  all their news.  The gals are  Marvel   Barton   from   Grand  Bend Ontario, Inez McMurdo  from Calgary, Mildred Soren-  son of Vancouver and Lilian  Birk of Redrooffs.  They are  daughters  of Louise  Bardahl  who is known to many people in  this area and who is just short  of celebrating her 104th birthday. Louise is in a nursing home  in Calgary and is weir looked  after by her devoted family. A  highlight of the sisters gathering  was an enjoyable evening at the  Parthenon  to  hear  the local  Halfmoon Hams show.  LOCAL WRITER A BIG HIT  Redrooffs author Judy Gill  delighted her audience when she  gave a talk and workshop at  January's meeting of the Sun-  coast   Writers'   Forge.   The  writing of romance novels was  the theme of the evening. Judy  gave instructions on how to  map out a novel - by developing  characters,   plot,   atmosphere,  and   how   to   tie   everything  together. She particularly stressed realism as opposed to fantasy  as the tendency of, for instance  Harlequin   Romances,   has  changed from the fantasy idea  to   more   realistic   situations.  Those present enjoyed becoming involved in an exercise of  creating   their   own   hero   or  heroine and found it to be a  great learning experience. Well  done, Judy.  Next month's speaker will be  well known local writer Peter  Trower and this promises to be  another very enjoyable event.  Date is Wednesday, February  13 and all members and those  *��  X  SUNSHINE COAST EMPLOYMENT  DEVELOPMENT SOCIETY (SCEDS)  ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING  Monday, January 28th  at 7:30 p.m.  at  Sunshine Coast Regional District Office, Sechelt  ELECTION OF OFFICERS  interested will be welcome to attend at the Arts Council on that  evening. Plans are moving  along well towards the summer  Festival of the Written Arts  which promises to be an even  greater event this year.  TIME FOR A BEEF  It's been awhile since I allowed myself the luxury of ranting  and raving about something  which has really annoyed me  but there is a great urge to give  vent to something which really  gets me to feeling a bit bitter  and twisted. No doubt many of  you will find the same annoyance when you pick up a  sale flyer in your mail, you then  dash in to Sechelt or Gibsons  from Halfmoon Bay with your  list of special buys of stuff  which you need to run your  household only to be informed  that we are "sold out". Mind  you, this is on the very morning  of the start of the sale. Or else  "we're sorry but those didn'l  come in". It's high time We^^  stopped graciously accepting  this explanation and demanded  that the promises made on these  flyers be honoured. These flyers  very often prove to be just a big  "come along" and when this  happens we should just walk  out of the store empty handed  -1 do.

New  Guides enrolled this fall are  Venessa Fielding, Klisala Harrison, Jolaine Percival, Niki  Hunsche, Nicole Vaughan,  Michelle Stephens, and Andrea  Wright. This year, 1985, is the  75th Anniversary of Guiding, so  watch out for lots of activity  this year!

This is  rewarding work and with a good roster of workers no one has to do  more than their share, so if you have an hour or two each month to  spare call the volunteer coordinator at 885-5126. -dh>k ev��m photo  EDC meeting  .Continued from page 1  ��� by the provincial government),  \ and- took the two week trip on  .his own vacation time. Three  kdays were spent with his family  ��and 12 days were spent touring  Z Norway's fish farming industry,  ^enhanced by Vedo's ability to  "���speak  Norwegian.  The  board  ���decided that before considering  the  matter again at  the next  meeting,  they  would ask  the  -B.C. Mariculture Association to  I! comment on the benefits of the  ; trip for this area's aquaculture  \ industry and to request Vedo to  ; submit a list of his expenses.  The board discussed Alderman Burnside's request that the  I-.DC have a presence in Ciib-  . sons where a room in the mun-  ' cipal   offices  would   be  made  ', available.  Two possibilities of  I staffing this office were considered.  First, that the office be staff-  , ed on a fixed day each week,  and second, that the location be  used to accommodate meetings  that would be scheduled as demand required. The second  choice was approved due to the  impracticality of the first. It was  also discussed that Pender Harbour would be accommodated  in a similar manner.  In a general message to the  board, Russell C'rum brought  up the moral and ethical issue of  conflict of interest, stating that  there was no specific case at  issue. He said that any member  who had a personal interest in  any issue before the board had  an obligation to disclose it to the  board and that any member  who gained any benefit from  his/her portion on the board  would have to be accountable to  law. "It's-just common sense,"  he concluded.  Brett McGillivray, Regional  Board Director from Area "D"  requested approval in concept  from the Sechelt council for the  "One in Four Solution" recycling proposal for the Sunshine  Coast.  One week out of every four  would be set aside for pick%>  of "re-cyclables" by,the regular  garbage collection crews, who  would then make their deliveries  to special recycling depots. No  regular garbage would be picked up during this week. Garbage  collection during the other three  . weeks would continue as usual.  Special containers would be  provided for households' glass  and cans. McGillivray stated  that the rising cost of garbage  collection and disposal from  $150,000 in the 1950's to  $300,000 today leads to the consideration of this alternative.  The sale of the recycled material  would be used to reduce these  costs.  As part of the process of implementing this program,  McGillivray has prepared a  questionnaire for residents that  explains the project and asks  whether or not they are willing  to participate. These questionnaires will soon be mailed to  every household on the coast.  The regional district is supporting the program;, but will  await the results of the questionnaire before proceeding further. Sechelt council gave  unanimous approval in concept  for the program. The next step  will be to make arrangements  with the garbage collection services.  Similiir systems are working  in Saanich, West Vancouver,  and many other communities in  other parts of Canada and the  USA. Those wishing to help  hold down property taxes while  enhancing free enterprise and  promoting ecological awareness  should, read and respond .to the  "One in Four Solution*' questionnaire, when it appears in the  mailbox. -  Jrir other matters before council, Aldermen Craig and Short  have volunteered to help man  the Sunshine Coast Tourism's  Boat Show exhibit at the Vancouver Boat Show.  It was reported that, in view  of the difficulties encountered  last month with snow removal,  a complete survey is under way  of all available snow removal  equipment on the coast so that  in future they can be contacted  at a moment's notice.  Based on the recommendation of Ashford Associates,  council awarded the contract  for the storm sewer outfall on  Inlet Avenue to Jorgensen Con-.  trading Ltd. of Halfmoon Bay  with their bid of $47,930. Both  Aldermen Craig and Short expressed confidence in the quality of the work done by  Jorgensen.  Alderman Craig reported the  Sechelt arena is back in full time  operation and he will begin this  week to establish a program  schedule for the summer months. The Provincial Emergency  Preparedness Committee now  has a portable computer which,  with its up to date software can  perform its function more effectively.  Bylaw 287, which provides  for borrowing of money in anticipation of revenue, was given  three readings with the final  reading scheduled for Friday,  January 18. It siates that the  amount of liability of the council may incur is $1,191,000,  which is 75 per cent of the whole  amount of taxes levied for all  c purposes in 1984. Specifically, it  states that council may borrow  $650,000 from the Bank of  Montreal, Sechelt as may be required.  The week beginning February  3 has been proclaimed "Variety  Club Week" in support of the  Variety Club Telethon's annual  "Show of Hearts" fund raising,  drive.  This week has been declared  "Minor Hockey Week".  The meeting was concluded  with Alderman Short bringing  to the attention of council that it  is time again to consider a Spring Clean-up for the village.  Off-street parking by-laws will  be enforced to remove unlicensed vehicles from public streets.  Mayor Kolibas suggested using  Katimavik members to help  clean up the parks.

If you are one. NOW IS THE TIME. Please pass  the word along, because each year, it seems, when the supply  is exhausted, someone asks, "When are you bringing in Marmalade Oranges?"  Marmalade Oranges are bitter and should never be purchased for out-of-hand eating. It has happened on occasion  and, of course, the people complained bitterly!  I'll never forget an experience I had in southern England  one beautiful autumn day. As I rode a bike past an orchard I  couldn't resist jumping over a rail fence to pick a few mouthwatering ripe apples. I quickly tucked some (quite a few) into  my army blouse and rode off.  ftinsoiYsl  fisiil  MARKET!  5-n /Ti^l  We've got 'em.

I  threw the apple to the roadside and tried another with the  same result.

To further illustrate the  mysterious and dramatic world  of Papua New Guinea, Don  Luger has kindly agreed to give  a repeat of his slide show and  talk which will be held on Friday, January 25, starting 7:30  p.m. at the Arts Centre. The  Lugers took thousands of slides  during their five year stay in  Papua, New Guinea and this  show is a cross-section of what  they think is of most interest to  the public. There are wonderful  shots of the landscape, the  flora, birds, the hazards of  building roads in such a wild  country (Don, employed by  Cuso, was for 3 years in charge  of building roads) and of  course the people, dressed in  their strange masks and  costumes.  Everyone is welcome to attend, admission is free and there  will be refreshments.  New film series  The Pacific Cinematheque  "Films on Tour" series begins  January 23 with The Red Shoes,  followed by: Heart Like a  Wheel (February 6), Rumble  Fish (February 20), La Traviata  (March 6), Lonely Hearts  (March 20), Fanny & Alexander  (April 3), and finally The 400  Blows (April 17).  The Red Shoes is the wonderful 1948 offering from Michael  Powell and Emeric Pressburger  which introduced Moira  Shearer to the screen. The film  contains a 14-minute ballet, also  called "The Red Shoes", based  on a Hans Christian Anderson  story about a wicked shoemaker  who sells an enchanted pair of  slippers to a young girl.  Delighted at first with the slippers in which she dances joyously, she discovers that the slippers will not let her stop dancing  - and the bewitched, exhausted  girl dies.  It is a superb, stylized fairy  tale and a landmark film for its  integration of dance in storytelling. Entirely suitable for school  age children and aspiring  balletomanes.

Katie  Angermeyer, the instructor, sees  a need for children to make  music rather than just listening  (more house-music). She hopes  to augment what the  "restrainted" schools have been  unable to provide. Katie's  motivation comes partly from  her three year old daughter, for  whom she would like to provide  musical opportunity; and partly  from the fact that she has  played violin for 28 years and  now would like to pass it on.  Katie's qualifications include  being concert master of her high  school orchestra in Neenah,  Wisconsin. She later played  with the Northwestern University Symphony and the Univeristy  of Richmond (Virginia) Symphony. She studied violin under  a Peabody Conservatory (Baltimore) faculty member, and at  the same time took jazz-improv  lessons. She learned to play the  fiddle (bluegrass style) in  Virginia and Kentucky before  moving to the Sunshine Coast  five.years, ago. She plays now,  with an Irish traditional band  called "Emerald". . ;-   ,  The teaching methods will be  drawn from Suzuki, Yehudi  Menuhin and Katie's previous  teachers, altered to meet the  needs of various age groups.  The tiny children (ages three to  six) will be with a parent who  will also learn and then be a role  model. All will be taught to play  by ear and to read music only  when they are ready. Listening  at home to tapes of the music  they are learning will be most  important, as playing music is  like   learning   language���first  you hear, then you imitate.  Individual work will be done  within a group setting and the  child's attention span will be  honoured���there is no need to  make a child sit through a half-  hour lesson, when they have  learned all they will absorb in 10  minutes. The students will also  get experience in playing with  others, to prepare them for orchestral, chamber, or jam session groups. Katie, who is also a  physiotherapist, will be sure to  teach proper posture, warm-up  exercises (as for sports), and  relaxation. Both Suzuki and  Menuhin stress relaxation in  their lessons, becuase it is only  in the relaxed state that the soul  of the music can be released.  Separate classes will be held  for children seven to 11, who  will not require parental participation, and for 12 and over.  Katie already has a few interested adult students and  would like to see more. There is  no limit to the age at which  musical enjoyment is possible.  A variety of music styles will  be taught. Katie knows best  classical, blue grass, old tymey,  Irish, and improv; but she can  also teach jazz, pop, rock,'arid  country.     ���  The lessons will be held at  Robert Creek elementary school  on Tuesday afternoons and in  Halfmoon Bay on Saturday  mornings beginning the first  week of February. Violins can  be rented or purchased. For further information, phone  885-5539.  The community can look forward to violin recitals in the  near future. Music for the enjoyment of those who play and  for the delight of all who listen  will be the goal of this new venture.

The lotteries branch in Victoria have now approved a  licence for the 1985 Salmon  Shark Derby/Lottery to be held  by the Sunshine Coast Tourism  Association - this after some  head-scratching1, according to  association treasurer, Art  McGinnis.  "The idea of a fishing derby  combined with a lottery for people who do not fish was new to  them," explained Art McGinnis. "Also, they were wary of  allowing us to sell tickets in  Vancouver."  Lotteries legislation requires  that tickets be sold only in the  area which benefits by funds  raised. By selling tickets in Vancouver, as the licence allows, the  Tourism Association has  dramatically expanded the accessible market.  "We reasoned that the Sunshine Coast is working to  become the lower mainland's  principal marine playground.  As such, they stand to benefit as  much as we do," said McGinnis.  Four thousand derby licences  will be sold - 1,000 for  fishermen and 3,000 for their  non-fishing, 'armchair' partners, matched by licence  numbers. Each licence will carry  five lottery tickets and cost $10.  There will be three lottery  draws. The first will take place  February 10 - last day of the  Vancouver Boat Show - in B.C.  Place, with 101 prizes: $1,000  and 100 tickets for the Provincial Lottery. The draw will be  from tickets sold durin6 the  Boat Snow at the Sunshine  Coast Booth. The second draw  will happen May 4 -100 winners  receiving tickets for the Provincial. The third and final draw  takes place May 19 with 16  prizes: $1,000, five $50 'Ex-  pGasis Fun Certificates' and 10  top-brand fishing rods and  reels. Odds on winning a lottery  prize are better than 18 to one  - particularly during the Boat  Show draw.  The Salmon Shark Derby will  be held May 18/19 within the  waters of the Sunshine Coast  -from Port Mellon on Howe  Sound to Egmont on Jervis Inlet. The fisherman who lands  the derby-tagged salmon shark  will win $5,000 for himself and  $1,666 for each of his three  'armchair' licence-partners. The  biggest salmon shark will win  $1,000 for the lucky fisherman  and $1,000 each for this three  'armchair' partners. In addition, there will be five salmon  sharks carrying bonus-tags  . worth $100 each to fishermen  and $100 each to their 15 'armchair' partners. There can be no  estimate on the chances of winning the derby, but the odds are  that somebody will.  Fish to be tagged will be  handled by federal fisheries personnel and released at least  24-hours prior to the derby start  under the supervision of the  RCMP. Details of check-in  points will be released soon,  There is some talk that a  number of private corporations  - local and beyond - are interested in participating in the  event. For a small donation, the  Sunshine Coast Tourism  Association will arrange for a  salmon shark to be tagged and  released in their name at the  same time, carrying prizes  above and beyond the derby's  for fishermen who land them.  Ticket sales bepin at the Vancouver Boat Show, boosted by a  large aquarium with live salmon  shark at the Sunshine Coast  Booth. After the Boat Show,  the display will move to shopping centres on the Sunshine  Coast to promote further sales.  ���:^��afe����^^  Pronto's Restaurant thanks the people of the  Sunshine Coast for supporting us in our  first year of business.

Cedar Plaza   Gibsons   886-8138  capilano  college  Gibsons council  Funding tight  A delegation from the Sun-  coast Writers' Forge, a proposed hydro rate increase, a request  for capital funds from the Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department, and a shortfall on the  Christmas lighting were all  items on the Gibsons council  meeting agenda, January 15.  The Suncoast Writers' Forge  represented by Mrs. Kay Little  was requesting funding from  the council to aid in its annual  Festival of the Written Arts. In  response to calls for events to be  held in Gibsons, Mrs. Little  pointed out that using the Arts  Centre in Sechelt was imperative in order to save on  rent.  ���The Festival, which is well attended and enjoys an excellent  reputation, attracts many well-  known writers, and this year's  list is no exception; it includes  Peter Gzowski, James Barber  and Al Purdie, among others.  The request for funds was referred to the finance committee  and a decision will be reached in  the near future.  A letter to the clerk-treasurer  from the legal division of B.C.  Hydro informs the council that  a 6.5 per cent rate increase has  been applied for, effective April  1, 1985. The rates increased 6.5  per cent on April 1, 1984, making this an 11 per cent increase  within 12 months.  Alderman Ron Neilson proposed sending a letter to B.C.  Hydro before February 4, cutoff date for submissions opposing this latest increase.  "We had one increase last  year, and now, another one this  year," he said. "That's way  above so-called restraint  programs and inflation rates."  This was agreed to by council.  The Gibsons Volunteer Fire  Department has written requesting a contribution from  Gibsons of $5,020 for capital  expenses. This represents part  of Gibsons' annual contribution  to the West Howe Sound Fire  Protection District and is a  budgeted item, but Mayor  Larry Labonte pointed out that  Gibsons is already borrowing to  cover its own expenses until  taxes are collected. He assured  Jim Gurney, who was on hand  to press the fire department's  case, "We'll do our best, but  things are rough right  now...Every time we look at a  dollar we only find 10 cents."  As soon as funds are available  the payment will be made.  Christmas lighting was particularly lovely in Gibsons this  year largely due to volunteers  and donations from the  business community and other  concerned citizens. According  to a report from clerk-treasurer,  Lorraine Goddard, there are  almost three boxes of good light  bulbs for future use; these and  the one other box which was used cost $680.25 of which $550  have been collected by donation. The business community,  through a spokesperson, has requested that council pick up the  shortfall of $130. The finance  committee is considering this  proposal.  The next council meeting will  be on February 5 at 7:30 p.m.  IMPORTANT NOTICE  To All Persons Intending to Enroll in  Post Secondary Studies in 1985  Regarding  THE ENGLISH PLACEMENT TEST (EPT)  The English Placement Test is being offered to secondary  school students at public administrations throughout British  Columbia on Saturday, March 2nd. 1985.

Next game is February 2  at Elphinstone and it's worth a trip to see some exciting football  from our homegrown team.  exciting  ���Jay Pomfret photo  Safety concerns  Mr. George Herie, who lives  on Highway 101, Soames Point,  is worried about the safety of  the children who wait for the  school bus at the waiting shed in  the Soames Point area,  "One of these days," he told  the Coast News, in a conversation, "something Is going to  happen."  The problem, he said, is that  some of the young children run  out onto the road which is frequently busy with ferry traffic  and a clear danger. "Sometimes  they throw rocks at the cars,  which could cause an accident,"  he went on.  "I don't know if their parents  have told them about running  on the road or not," he continued, "but the situation is  really bad. Maybe if they read  about it in the paper, they (the  parents) will talk to their kids.  "I have warned the kids, but  I start work again soon so I  won't be there to keep watch."  If your child waits for the  school bus on a busy road,  anywhere on the Coast make  sure that they are aware of the  dangers of passing traffic, and  warned to stay off the road. It  could save their lives.  Skoda in Sechelt  Gibsons  Director  Skookum Auto, of Sechelt,  has landed the dealership for  the latest thing in economical  European cars, the Skoda, from  Czechoslovakia. The Skoda has  many excellent features, not  least of which is its low price  and Mark Guignard of  Skookum is looking forward to  getting the first models here on  the Sunshine Coast in about  three weeks.  The Skoda is on display at the  Vancouver car show, which  runs from January 18 to 28 at  the Pacific National Exhibition.  .-. , ��� -.urop'pn ypi.r ..���    . ���;  "���"���'-    eOAS.T NESWS-''  CLASSIFIEDS  ;B & ��jrStore ..  u'ntn.naoo-.S'a.tu relay  "A'prlwndly .Pootplo Pint  Y.B.C.

Coast News, January 14,1985  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following was received for  publication.  Grace McCarthy  Minister of Human Resources  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C.  Dear Madame:  .As we start a new year, B.C.  now has the dubious distinction  of having Canada's highest rate  of unemployment  outside of  ''Newfoundland. In the east there  are signs of a recovery but in  B;C.    the   recession   is   only  deepening. New people swell the  ranks of the unemployed every,  day.    For   those   already  unemployed the prospects of  finding work are slim at best.  Changes in the LM requirements  have made it more difficult to  qualify   -for   assistance   and  benefits are too low to enable  (he   unemployed   to   look   for  work in other areas of the province.   When   Ul    runs   out,  welfare is the only option open  viiid;'until the recession ends,  the economic future for these  people   is   a   life   of   social  assistance.  Rather than ease the stigma  of "life on the dole" your  ministry and government have  made it more difficult, in fact  almost impossible, to survive on  welfare. Government support  lor the very programs needed  most has been severely curtailed  or eliminated. The rental grant  of $150 is gone. Health and  education user fees have increased. The Community Involvement Program (CIP)  wliich provided $50 to $100 per  month for community volunteers has all but disappeared.  Legal aid, child abuse programs, family support workers  and women's centres have met  with similar treatment. In addition to all this, some welfare  categories have faced cuts of  $80 per month. In the past two  and one half years the cost of  living has risen by 11.4 per cent  while the welfare rates have remained frozen. For example,  the family of four on welfare is  expected to survive on $10,440  per annum while the poverty  line is at $21,131.  This treatment of the  unemployed has created a class  system in Canada and B.C. in  particular, with our unemployed as third class citizens. These  people deserve better. The B.C.  Federation of Labour and  Operation Solidarity are  responding to this crisis with  Project Employment -working  people putting B.C. back to  work. These organizations and  their members have organized,  funded and participated in the  Unemployment Action Centres  and Food Banks to provide  short term aid. Your government's immediate short term action should be to raise the  welfare rate, to the poverty line  and give the unemployed relief  from a condition not of their  making. A resolution to this effect was passed at the January 9  meeting of the Sunshine Coast  Solidarity Coalition and reads  as follows:  WHEREAS welfare rates  have been frozen for two and a  half years; and WHEREAS low  income people have experienced  other cutbacks in service, tax  refunds and employment opportunities; and WHEREAS  welfare rates reach only about  half of the poverty line; and  WHEREAS an incrase in the  welfare rates would help local  business and benefit the entire  economy; THEREFORE BE IT  RESOLVED that the Sunshine  Coast Solidarity Coalition endorse the principle of raising  welfare rates to the poverty line  and BE IT FURTHER  RESOLVED that we send a letter to Human Resources  Minister, Grace McCarthy, urging her to raise welfare rates to  the poverty line AND BE IT  FINALLY RESOLVED support for this resolution be  sought from Gibsons and  Sechelt council and the SCRD.

To date, campaign contributions are up 15  per cent over last years' returns.  Monies raised through the  Christmas Seal Campaign  enable the British Columbia  Lung Association to provide  much needed support to vital  medical research projects, programs of public and professional education, school education programs to convince  school children not to take up  the cigarette smoking habit, and  informing adults about the  hazards of air pollution, tobacco and occupational ' lung  diseases.  Once again, thank you all  very much.  R.W. King, President  British Columbia  Lung Association  Food for  thought  Editor:  I hope readers might give the  following some consideration.  Food for thought: Answer  these questions to the best of  your ability.  1. Do you drink or use  drugs? 2. Do you think it is  necessary to drink alcoholic  beverages? 3. Does drinking  booze or using drugs solve your  problems? 4., Does drinking or  using drugs or smoking dope  give you self-esteem? 5. Can  you see and visualize what your  immediate surroundings would  look like if you did not spend  hard-earned cash on alcoholic  beverages or drugs or pot?  Stan Dixon, Chief  Sechelt Indian Band  Policy  Continued from page 3  proportion are ill. The cost to  the Canadian taxpayer is  estimated to be 5 billion annually as a result of these illnesses, if  medical costs, property damage  and lost wages are considered.  The benefits of a smoke free environment are thus apparent  and St. Mary's action is very appropriate.  Mr. Vucurevich's concern  about an unfavourable reaction  to the new regulations could  well be unfounded. Recent  smoking regulations in a by-law  passed by the city of Victoria  has resulted in no untoward  reaction. In fact, city officials.  are finding the new by-law is  self-policing. The Coast-  Garibaldi Union Board of  Health has been approached to  encourage municipal officials to  pass similar by-laws on the Sunshine Coast. It is my hope that  1985 will thus see progress  towards establishing smoke free  areas in public places, such as  shopping centres and restaurants.  Once again, congratulations  to St. Mary's Hospital, It is indeed gratifying to see a health  facility set the example.  James G.

All  cycling accidents with damages  over $25 should be reported to  police, not $2500 as the article  read.  Vehicles do make up the majority of the traffic on our roads  and highways. In the winter  months, it makes good sense to  drive slower on icy roads or in  inclement weather and to leave  extra distance between vehicles.  Always wear your seat belt.  Sure, the law says you have to  wear it but the fact is, it can  save you from death or serious  injury.  Passengers and especially  children must wear seat belts  and infants should be restrained  in approved carseats. Even a  minor accident or a sudden stop  at very slow speeds can send a  body into a dashboard or a  windshield. During school months, it is imperative that posted  speed limits be obeyed, (30 km  School board  per hour).  When following or approaching a school bus that has  stopped and has red flashing  lights, do not pass it. YOU  MUST STOP. A child may be  crossing the road out of your  view. If you do pass the bus and  manage not to hit a student, the  bus driver or another motorist is  sure to report you to the police.  You will be charged.  We are all well aware of all  the rules and regulations which  have to be followed when driving on roads and highways.  Sometimes these rules are  broken by those who are in a  hurry, those who are not paying  attention and by those who  simply don't care. But  remember those rules are there  to keep us all safe, especially  our children.  Our Town wishes you a very  safe 1985.  Next week, hit and run accidents. Please write, we  welcome your comments. Write  Our Town, Box 460, Gibsons,  B.C.  Board meets ML As  Trustees met on January 16  with ML As Don Lockstead and  John Reynolds within whose  constituencies this school  district lies. The meeting was arranged to aquaint the politicians  with the views and problems of  trustees in trying to carry out  the government's fiscal policy.  The topics . for discussion  were the loss of local autonomy,  the inadequacies of the fiscal  framework and the need to  maintain funding at the 1984  level if current educational standards are to be maintained.  Trustee Stephen led off with  a thumbnail sketch of the  frustration felt by the trustees in  their inability to provide the  levels of education demanded  by parents.  "It's grossly unfair," he said,  "to be held responsible if we  don't have the authority to  spend money that local people  feel necessary."  For two hours the questions  and comments came thick and  fast: "Can you explain the  motives of the government?";  "If Peck approves the three per  cent raise for the teachers will  the government provide the extra money or do we have to lay  teachers off?"; "Why does  government overrule boards  which come up with ingenious  ideas?" etc.  Both MLAs responded to  trustees concerns sincerely and  as fully as possible under the  circumstances. Lockstead expressed his belief that the  trustees' position is untenable  and assured them that education would be a priority for the  Tuesday  Wednesday  Thuisday  Ssturday  1:30-4pm  ^���42.  |30-4p,n  ?:00-9p.m.  1:30-4 P.m.  Opposition when the legislature  opens next month. He also expressed concern about the effect  the cutbacks in education were  having on local economies  where lay-offs inevitably were  reflected in bad times for small  business and bankruptcies.  Much of the questioning was  directed to Reynolds in the hope  that if he could be persuaded of  the district's needs he could  more easily get the ear of the  minister, and he promised to do  his best to urge Mr. Heinrich to  come in person to answer the  questions. He did remind the  board, however, that when  trustees, teachers and parents  from Howe Sound District had  a meeting with the minister they  returned convinced of the  validity of the government's  position.  Reynolds himself provided  the answer to the need for local  autonomy when he related the  attitude of the West Vancouver  board. According to him they  are saying "we hope you guys  don't back down and give into  those school boards who say  they can't cope".    '  West Vancouver went ahead,  over the protests of parents,  closed small schools and  transferred grade sevens to  secondary schools, evidently  believing that economics take  preference over what is educationally to be preferred. Clearly  fiscal policy created in Victoria  cannot meet the needs of school  districts with such different  needs as the Sunshine Coast and  West Vancouver.  In another context West Vancouver has few busing problems  while in this district transportation costs are a constant drain  on the system.  The meeting was undoubtedly worthwhile giving both politicians a better understanding of  the difficulties facing this  district. It may be the start of  closer contacts with our  representatives.  GIBSONS RCMP  Three adult males from Gibsons were arrested on January  13 after police responded to a  * call that suspects were attempting to break into the Uptown  Laundromat and charged with a  total of eleven counts of theft  under $200.  On January 14, a Roberts  Creek resident reported the  theft of 4 Michelin 14" radial  tires valued at $500. The tires  were stolen from a vehicle parked in the yard.  A motor vehicle accident was  reported on January 14 from  the Shaw Road and Highway  101 area. A north bound vehicle  was cut off by a second vehicle  turning left on Highway 101  from Shaw Road. Police are  still investigating the accident.  Injuries were not reported.  Damages totalled $500.  On January 17, police  recovered a Skill electric drill in  the Nelson Road and Highway  101 area. Owner can claim at  the Gibsons detachment by  quoting file: 85/0142.  SECHELT  A break and entry into a  summer residence located on  Skookumchuk Road in Sandy  Hook was reported on January  13. The break-in is believed to  have occurred between  December 28 and the report  date. Entry into the cottage was  gained through a kitchen window. Fishing gear and a quantity of liquor were stolen.  Thefts of heating oil were  reported from the Porpoise Bay  reserve on January 16. Four  separate home owners reported  that oil had been stolen from oil  tanks adjacent to residences.  Teachers  Continued from page 1  cared," he said, "and they're  only just realizing what the cuts  mean. What it means is that  there are 2,000 fewer teachers in  B.C. this year than last year,  and we hadn't even had a pay  hike.  "BCGEU employees have got  an increase but we have taken  zero for three years. We can't  strike; we go to arbitration and  collective bargaining in good  faith and we might get  nothing."  Serious morale problems  among teachers are common.  "We are getting a message from  Victoria that says we are not doing the job, that teachers are a  bunch of scoundrels," said  Slater. "The problems of  education are getting very  serious and what teachers are  doing is carrying bigger and bigger loads for what becomes less  and less due to inflation. It's  clearly a political choice and it  affects everyone."  The situation is not unique to  the Sunshine Coast. Across the  province 62 other districts have  gone to arbitration, and of them  only one was denied an increase. There are 75 school  district in B.C.  This process is not cheap; it  has cost School District #46  some $3,000 to comply with  government regulations which  insist on arbitration if agreement between board and  teachers cannot be reached.  "Multiply that by the 62 other  school districts and you have a  whopping bill, ($186,000) all in  the name of restraint, and all  for a final and binding decision  that may be overturned," said  Slater. "This is pretty embarass-  ing for Bennett's government."  Brian Butcher, president of  the British Columbia Teachers'  Federation, (BCTF) told the  Coast News, "Arbitrators have  rejected the idea that, the school  boards can't pay. The other increases in B.C. range from 1.1  to 4.5 per cent for a 2.5 per cent  across province average.  "It seems likely," continued  Butcher, "that final budget will  be pretty much the same as current projections, which means  Peck may very likely say 'No increase' when he makes his decision.  "The most absolutely aggravating thing is that school  board might argue with the  government now, but in the past  they had the right to raise taxes  to cover shortfalls," he went  on. "School boards are more  like clerks now; the government  gives them money and they  distribute it and if the board  needs more they can't raise it  locally.  "The sad thing," he concluded, "is that this is dividing the  school board. It's making it an  'us versus Socred' situation;  we're being divided on political  lines and that's very sad."

Aquaculture Update  Investment surge  Investment in B.C. aquaculture has become a hot issue. According to Oddvin Vedo, the  Sunshine Coast Economic Development Commissioner, there  are currently 15 to 20 proposals  that he knows of for new fish  farming operations to be  established on the Sunshine  Coast in 1985. If all these proposals come to pass, their total  capital investment over the next  two years is estimated at between $30-40 million.  The minimum fish farm investment appears to be approx-  imiately $150,000, with the  average ranging between  $250-$300,000 and the largest in  the $3-$5,000,000 range.  Norway's reported 25 to 30  per cent return on investment  record in the industry coupled  with continuing reports of the  declining Pacific salmon stocks  explain, this surge of interest in  .acquaculture.  According to Carsten Hagen,  president of Scantech Resources  Ltd., B.C. is in an excellent  position to compete with Norway  for the large U.S.  fresh  salmon market and in so doing,  match or exceed Norway's  return on investment record. It  is estimated that Norway will fly  10,000 tons of fresh salmon into  the U.S. in 1985. This accounts  for approximately 40 per cent of  Norway's total fish farm production.  At this time B.C.'s fish farms  produce a small fraction of  Norway's total annual production of 26,000 tons. However,  as the new fish farms come into  production, B.C.'s annual levels  will increase dramatically from  the estimated 200 tons produced  in 1984. Production from just  one of the large new farms will  exceed this figure.  The impact on local employment will be significant.  Though an average sized farm  will only employ approximately  three people, Oddvin Vedo's  statistics show that the support  services such as transportation,  processing, education,  manufacturing and distribution  will employ approximately five  to seven people for every individual employed directly on a  farm.  Aleiv development  The Sunshine Coast  Aquaculture Association  (SCAA) held a meeting at the  Bella Beach on January 17 and  more than 35 people were on  hand to share information and  help formulate policy for this  fledgling association.  Among those attending were  engineers, manufacturers of  various types of equipment such  as pumps, flotation material,  workbqats, photographers, fish  farmers, boat designers, computer software designers, commercial fishermen and several  people who came out of interest  in this newly arrived industry.  There were also potential investors on hand, brought  together by Economic Development Commissioner, Oddvin  Vedo, as well as an insurance  representative who presented a  plan for the co-ordination of  the area's insurance needs.  The industry is relatively new;  there is in fact only one insurance company in the world  which handles aquaculture insurance, and it is ultimately  underwritten by Lloyd's of  London. It is thought that having an agency which can handle  such insurance in a location central to the major area of the industry would be an advantage,  since each farm, with its own  needs, could receive individual  service.  Several of those attending left  before the meeting concluded to  go by boat from Madeira Park  to visit two fish farms on  Nelson Island, those operated  by Tom and Linda May and  Brad and June Hope. Here the  whole process, from egg to full-  grown fish, was seen, and at  Tidal Rush, the Hopes' farm, a  film crew from the CBC were  on hand to film the tour for  Country Canada.  The interest being shown in  this industry is evident too in the  response to the Continuing  Education course for those who  seek employment in the field.  Jon Van Arsdell, one of the  course designers, was at the  association meeting, and will  return on January 31 to make a  thorough presentation of the  course and what it has to offer.  Ricki Moss told the Coast  News in a conversation that  more than 50 people have so far  expressed interest in taking the  course, the only one of its kind.  Oddvin Vedo is also promoting a course under the  auspices of Malaspina College,  Nanaimo, for owner-operators  of fish farms. It is a 30 day intensive course, and will be held  in conjunction with Capilano  College's Sechelt campus.  Those interested in this management course should contact the  EDC at 885-4101.  Joint  venture  Continued from page 1  According to Hagen,  Scantech has I he sound financial backing required to  establish itself and become an  important support for B.C.  aquaculture. Equity participation in fish farms will also be  considered.  Carsten Hagen was born in  Norway and immigrated to  Canada 20 years ago. He has 10  years experience in Mexico  where he worked with the  government, marketing and ex-  potting canned fish and fish  meal. Clarke Hamilton, Scan-  tech's vice-president previously  worked fdor 10 years as Fjord  Design's construction manager  in Sechelt.  The highlight of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District planning committee meeting, January 17 was a presentation of the  technical background report  made by Judy Skogstad as part  of the preparations of Area E's  long awaited settlement plan.  The report, which has taken  many months of hard work,  deals with all aspects of the  area, and its information was  briefly summarized in the  presentation and accompanied  by an excellent slide-show which  highlighted each point.  It begins with geographical  and historical features, and continues through a terrain  analysis, including the geology  of the area, slope, soils,  hydrology and vegetation conditions. The ecological  resources, woodland, stream-  side, and coastal Eire examined  as are visual resources.  Agriculture, forestry, mining,  and fisheries are also studied.  Commerce and industry form  the next part of the report, with  studies on commercial and service industrial facilities. Population, dwelling composition, the  characteristics of different  parcels of land are laid out, as  are the essential services, such as  water, sewage and refuse  disposal, transportation and fire  protection, as well as parks and  recreation, schools and health  services.  All these reports are then examined and a residential and  rural settlement capacity formulated. Each section mentioned here is accompanied by a  clear map which helps make the  facts take shape. The maps will  be included in the final report,  but presently are on display at  the SCRD offices.  Area E residents are very*  pleased with the progress of this  report,' and now that the  technical background is more or  less completed, it is easier to  understand how the settlement  plan has taken some time to  come to fruition.  Ms Skogstad is to be congratulated on the report as is  Sheane Reid, project planning  assistant, and Geoff Power who  dealt with topics related to the  economic base.  * *  ?f .
