 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  VICTORIA, B.C.  V8V 1X4  85.4  Coast benefits from  Canada Works  3 ��>^<*?i  Snow means traffic snarls and harassed motorists but.  ���Ni'\illc Conway photo  Almost  30 new jobs  have  been created on the Sunshine  Coast with the announcement  ' last week of approval of six  Canada Works grants.  In Gibsons, the town has  received approval,for six jobs  on the construction of the new  seawalk and the Sunshine Alano  Club will be able to employ two  people.  The Harmony Fish Farms  will employ two persons to help  in the expansion of the present  hatchery on Nelson Island and  also to aid in the establishment  of a new hatchery at Chapman  Creek.  "We are hoping this will be  the first step towards helping  other people start farms," said  Tom May in a conversation  with the Coast News. "We will  be able to produce up to a  million and a half fish for sale  to other farms. This in turn will  provide        even more  employment." The two  employees will work for some  six months.  Camp Olave, at the foot of  Rat Portage Hill, will be able to  install most of a new water  system, beginning on April I; 10  persons will be employed for 10  weeks. Mrs. Scagill, of the Girl  Guides of Canada, told the  Coast News in a conversation  that the water system has been  in place for almost 40 years and  the repairs necessary to keep it  operational are becoming very  expensive.  "The grant isn't what we asked for," she said, "but it will go  a long way towards replacing  the system and we're very happy  about it."  The Barge Hostel co-operative has received a $28,075  grant, far less than was applied  for, but still making it possible  for four people to be employed  on the completion of the project. It is hoped that the barge  will be on the Coast within the  next two weeks, where it will sit  at Porpoise Bay while work-  continues*. -"'  Finally, the Sunshine Coast  Tourism Association has receiv-.  ed a $30,600 grant which will  provide 92 work weeks for this  community, and will hopefully  lead to permanent employment  for perhaps two people.  Work .starts  on  ...it also means happy youngsters. The Coast has seen lots of both  recently. -OiamK-Bans photo  Crime Stoppers  gearing up  Wayne Leatherdale of the  Gibsons RCMP and local resident Doug Dixon hosted a  meeting last Wednesday to explain the mechanics of setting  up a Crime Stoppers program  here on the Sunshine Coast.  The Crime Stoppers program  encourages persons who have  information regarding a crime  to phone a 24-hour hotline and  convey any relevant information. 'Tipsters' may be referred  to by a call number if they wish  to remain anonymous, and a  cash reward will be paid if there  is a conviction and/or a  recovery of stolen goods.  Local lawyer Wayne Rowe  has offered his services to.set up  a civilian non-profit organization responsible for raising  donations and implementing  remuneration. This Crime Stoppers board of directors and officers numbering anywhere  from five to 25 members will  assess reports from local RCMP  detachments as to the merits of  a tipster's information and  whether or not a reward will be  paid, and its amount.  The main component of a  Crime Stoppers program is a  locally televised 'crime of the  week', a re-enactment of a real"  crime at the place where it occurred. Marta McKown at  Channel 10 has agreed to allow  the use of audio-visual equipment to film these re-  enactments and ex-Elphinstone  students Steve Sleep and Rick  Buckmaster have donated their  services as technicians.  "It is hoped that high school  drama students will participate  as actors in these  re-enactments," Wayne  Leatherdale told the Coast  News. "It would be a good idea  to have the local newspapers  publish   photographs   of   the  filming and local radio could  also provide a verbal synopsis  of each crime of the week."  An interesting Crime Stoppers statistic to note: for every  dollar donated to a crime stopper fund, $25 in stolen goods is  recovered. Anyone wishing to  donate to the Coast Crime  Stoppers, serve on the board, or  contribute in any way please  phone co-ordinator Wayne  Leatherdale, Gibsons RCMP  886-2245 or Doug Dixon  886-2429.  The next Crime Stoppers  meeting will be Wednesday,  March 6 at 2 p.m. in the Marine  Room under the Gibsons  library.  There was good news at the  Gibsons council meeting,  February 5, when it was announced that a Canada Works  grant to construct the seawalk  had been approved. There will  be jobs for six people for 16  weeks on the walkway, which  will extend from the government wharf to the new marina.  It is hoped that work will commence on February 11 and be  completed by May 31 with other  work on the downtown  revitalization plan proceeding at  the same time.  Other council business included a video presentation by  Constable Wayne Leatherdale  of the Gibsons RCMP detachment who is the Sunshine Coast  co.-ordjnato^.��oi-the-faew_iGdi��gp?-  Stoppers program. ��������� FoflcAviijg ���.  this, Mr. G.T. Beynon was.on'  hand to present to council his  concerns over the location of a  propane tank at the ��� new  marina, and later council  discussed a sewer improvement  by-law and the offer of two  shrubs from the Girl Guides of  Canada.  Leatherdale, in his presentation, gave some startling facts  about the rise of crime on the  Sunshine Coast and gave council some background on the  Crime Stoppers program. He  asked council for their moral  support and possible financial  aid as well.  Mr. Beynon, who lives directly behind the new Gibsons  marina, appeared in order to express his concerns over the proposed installation of a propane  tank between the entrance and  exits to the boat launching  ramp. He feels its position is the  worst possible, and asked council to take a look at the problem. Mayor Larry Labonte  assured Beynon that although  government rules have been  observed, "if a second look is  possible we may be able to do  something".  Approval has been given to  sewer improvements loan  authorization   Bylaw  No.  475  but the letter, from Christopher  Woodward, inspector of municipalities, pointed out that this  approval "does not constitute  i approval, of a revenue sharing  grant". This approval may not  come until late March or early  April, but it was agreed by  Council that a letter be written to  the ministry of municipal affairs  giving thanks for the by-law approval and also stressing the importance to the town of the  possible 25 per cent capital  grant.  The Girl Guides of Canada,  ir) commemmoration of the  seventy-fifth anniversary of  Guiding in Canada has decided  to donate one or more shrubs to  the town; this will als$ serve as  i-reosg^tion for .-; -^the vSUppQrt ���>  ifcceived in the - past from- the"w  /community. It was requested  that the girls involved be allowed to attend the planting of the  shrubs. Council has accepted  this offer and the planting will  take place whenever conditions  allow.  Wharf closure  Tenders have been called for maintenance work to be done  on the government wharf at Gibsons, and shortly after the  contract is awarded by the minister of public works the wharf  will be closed to vehicular traffic for as long as one month.  The closure means that parking1 will be eliminated but  pedestrian access will be closed for only an hour or two at a  ' time.  Schools talk  The first of the "Let's Talk About Schools" forums will  take place on Wednesday, February 13, 7:30 p.m., at the  Pender Harbour secondary school. Call David Short at  886-8184 for further details.

That message  tells Ottawa that, local sport  fishermen want better enforcement of regulations and a  stronger commitment to  salmonid enhancement.  Mr. Bill Ottway, regional  director of the B.C. Wildlife  Federation for the lower  mainland, was on hand to provide background and information and those present discussed  a series of proposed recommendations arising from the recently  ratified Canada/U.S. Salmon  Treaty, with commercial fisherman Bill Boyte in the chair.  A total of 275,000 chinook  will be taken from the Gulf in  1985-86, and the department of  fisheries and oceans (DFO) had  originally projected figures  which would give the sport  fisherman only one chinook per  day and five per year, with a  three-month closure. However,  through closer inspection of  available data and negotiations  it was agreed that sport  fishermen may take two  chinook per day, 20 per year  and that there will be no  closures, other than "spot"  closures.  According to Cliff Bowles,  head of the Sechelt Rod and  Gun Club committee examining  the new treaty, the "spot"  closure is a gray area; "We  haven't been able to get a clear  definition of 'spot' from  DFO," he told the Coast News  in conversation. "It could be a  small area, such as Camp Byng,  or Pender Harbour, but the  DFO won't make it clear."  The purpose of the spot  closures is to allow the fish access to the spawning grounds,  so that stocks may be enhanced,  and each closure, according to  Bill Ottway, would last only five  to 10 days.  Throughout the meeting,  public discussion again and  again brought the point back "to  enforcement and what is  perceived to be a lack of manpower and laws with 'teeth'.  Budget cuts have accounted for  much of the problem and Ottway said, "Government has to  take a stand. There should be  no more cuts."  There are not enough enforcement officers and it is felt  that many tourists are "ripping  off the resource" as one participant expressed himself. Concern was also expressed over  native fishing rights; while it  was agreed that food fishing  was acceptable many members  felt that much of the native  fishing was not of this nature,  especially in the lower mainland  area.  The question of raising the  cost of licences was also approached. Members agreed that  an increase would be acceptable  but only if the extra $5 went  directly to salmon enhancement  and only if enforcement were  strengthened.  "Give us enforcement," said  Ottway, "and we'll give you the  money. Enforcement must take  place first. We have to send that  message to the government."  One of the most controversial  topics to arise was that of sales  of chinook eggs. The DFO has  sold more than half a million  chinook eggs to aquaculturists,  and this has upset sport  fishermen. Ottway said, "When  the stocks are built up in.the  Gulf, okay, sell the eggs, but  until  then,  no more chinook  eggs to the fish farmers.  "We want to put the eggs  back in the streams where they  belong," he continued. The  members voted in favour of a  resolution demanding that  chinook eggs be sold to  aquaculturists on a bid basis only, saying that recent DFO sales  were totally illegal since they did  not ask for bids.  Finally the problem of a rising seal population was brought  up. According to an independent count, in the approximately 90 miles of Inlet waters  (Sechelt, Salmon, Narrows and  Jervis) there are about 850 adult  seals, each one eating up to 30  pounds of fish a day. Ottway  cited figures that show if the  take of mammals such as seals is  reduced by five per cent, the  take possible by people rises by  50 per cent.  He advised the  Please turn to page 16 2.  t  Coast News, February 11,1985  There is an ugly quality of vendetta in the soap opera of  Richard Hatfield now being played out on the Canadian  political stage.  Let's face the fact that the lifestyle of the New  Brunswick premier has long been known to be eccentric in  the extreme. Hatfield has been an effective and an  enlightened premier of his province for years despite a personal lifestyle which would appear to be at odds with his  conservative province. Despite that lifestyle he has more  effectively dealt with the dual historic nature of his province than virtually any other Canadian premier.  It is also true that the history of Canadian politics is rich  in examples of the eccentric bachelor politician: William  Lyon Mackenzie King comes to mind; Pierre Elliot  Trudeau, for most i of his political life a 'swinging'  bachelor; Allan MacEachan of Nova Scotia.  Canadians generally, it seems from this vantage point,  are fair-minded enough to judge their politicians by what  they do in the poitical arena. They know that if we are to  start scrutinizing what people do at two o'clock in the  morning we may be starting down a slippery slope that  none of us will find fair footing.  Had Hatfield's recent trial for marijuana possession  ended without the asinine comments of the judge who saw  fit to lay blame on media representatives for setting Hatfield up it is unlikely that the vindictive and malicious  character assasination presently taking place would have  occurred. It was not Hatfield who accused reporters of  putting the marijuana in his suitcase but it is Hatfield who  is suffering the retaliation.  We would be content to allow the people of new  Brunswick to decide at the next opportunity whether or  not their premier is still a fit leader for their province. Any  other course of action is to give credence to the most  vicious rumour-mongering and who can say where that  would lead if encouraged.  A comparison  We have nothing but'applause for the courageous  stand taken by tiny New Zealand against the nuclear  madness. That country's refusal to allow American  ships carrying nuclear weapons to dock in their facilities  is the kind of action we would expect from a democratic  socialist government, bearing in mind that such a  government is dedicated to change without violence nationally and internationally.  Meanwhile we have in Canada this spectacle of the  federal NDP cosying up to the concept of military  alliance as embodied by NATO because Ed Broadbent  thinks by so doing he can become leader of the opposition. The race towards irrelevance is underway in the  Canadian democratic socialist party which has never  dared to call itself such.  5 YEARS AGO  Clive McKay's residence was destroyed by fire on  February 8.

None of the amenities of  electric lights and appliances, running water, central heating or  telephone���more or less taken for granted today���were available to  most pioneer families, even though these amenities did exist at that time.  With little money for newspaper or magazine subscription, mail consisted almost entirely of correspondence with relatives and friends. Such  fancy prepared foods as existed were beyond reach of most famines in  small outlying settlements. Chores and long walks to and from school left  little time for play. Of course, youngsters born to the wilds had no basis  for comparison of rural and urban living. But even those who had accom  panied their parents on their move from city to wilderness generally took  the changed conditions in their stride. In later years, following removal  from the wilds, or when urban amenities had found their way into remote  settlements, the former child from the fringes of civilization would look  back with nostalgia at this "meagre" life. The brief good moments would  be magnified, and bad times looked at in retrospect through rose-  coloured glasses. In many ways, pioneer frontier life seems to have been  made for the young.

"..���>"*"  The young man in question  was the youngest, by far, of a  party of four which included his  father. We were wandering oij  one of the glorious high summer  days last year in Cliff Gilker  Park, the four of us and my twp  dogs.  There was a country of the  Black Rabbit just nearby. The  rabbit had been around the  western fringes of the park for a  while, obviously an escaped  domestic making a bid for  freedom.  A few run-ins with dogs in  the park had persuaded him, I  always thought of the rabbit as  him, it would be safer on the  other side of the creek on the  edge of the golf course and  there he took up residence for  the better part of a couple of  years.  It was an ideal rabbit environment. There was the  carefully tended grass of fairway #2 to nibble on during the  early   morning   and   evening  Black Rabbit  hours when the golfers weren't  around though latterly he was  so accustomed to the passing of  the golfers that he sat out sunning himself and nibbling grass  with the golfers passing in close  proximity.  Inside the trees there were lots  of tree stumps and holes to dive  down with the requisite escape  holes on the far side. The occasional dog that did find the  country of the Black Rabbit  never had a chance. At top  speed the, rabbit would sprint  through trie trees and dive down  ���underf~a root system, out of  sight*, ^Vhile the.; dog whined  eagerly at the entrance of the  rabbit hole the rabbit would exit  by the back door and move  safely off to another part of the  forest.  The golfers knew all about  him, of course, and would mention their sightings as an integral  feature of their round of golf.  A wandering newspaperman,  sometimes with camera and  sometimes not but always with  dogs would steal to the edge of  the golf course for a glimpse of  the rabbit. Man with dogs is not  welcome on the edges of golf  courses, for it is well if erroneously known that dogs are  not happier than when they are  eating golf balls and defecating  on putting greens so it was  necessary when visiting the land  of the Black Rabbit to imitate a  deer.  One waited trembling on the  edge of the wood to ascertain  where the humans were. If the  coast was clear one ventured  more timidly than the rabbit  itself into that fringe area, part  wood and part fairway where  the Black Rabbit enjoyed its  freedom.  I suppose if I hadn't told the  skeptical little boy that he would  have to imitate a deer if he  wanted to see the Black Rabbit  he would have given my utterance more credence than he  did, though he habitually  regards me as a somewhat  doubtful quantity. But he  would not promise to imitate a  deer, the visit was not made,  and now I fear the rabbit is  gone.  The prolonged snow covering  of this winter, especially where  it is just a dusting within the  trees, is ideal for tracking rabbits and though I have from  December to the present writing  made some clandestine visits to  the land of the Black Rabbit I  have not seen a single track. So  now it is too late for me to take  my little friend to the country of  the Black Rabbit, even if I could  persuade him that I was serious  and to imitate a deer.  The Lake Isle  of Innisf ree  / will arise and go now, and go to Innisf ree,  And a small cabin built there, of clay-and wattles made:  Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honeybee,  And live alone in the bee loud glade.  And I shall have some peace there, for peace  comes dropping slow.  Dropping from the veils of the morning to  where the cricket sings;  There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple  glow.  And evening full of linnet's wings.  I will arise and go now, for always night and day  I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;  While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements  grey,  I hear it in the deep heart's core.  William Butler Yeats  Maryanne's    viewpoint  The equality of sacrifice  by Maryanne West  The story of how the Chrysler  Corporation pulled through  from the brink of bankruptcy as  told in the autobiography of its  president, Lee Iacocca, has a  universal relevance. Such basic  common, sense somehow seems  to elude our political leaders.  The chapter from which the  following is taken is appropriately, "Equality of  sacrifice". .  "I began by reducing my own  salary to a $1 a year. Leadership  means setting an example. I  didn't take a $1 a year to be a  martyr but for good, cold,  pragmatic reasons. When I went  to Doug Fraser, the union president, I could look him in the eye  and say, 'Here's what I want  from you guys as your share.'  "I wanted our employees and  our suppliers to be thinking:- 'I  can follow a guy who sets that  kind of example!'  "Unfortunately, austerity  was a new idea at Chrysler. I  wasn't impressed by all the horror stories of the extravagances  of the previous administration;  I had lived for years with Henry  Ford, who thought he owned  the company. Henry spent  enough money to make Lynn  Townsend (former president of  Chrysler) look like a beggar.  Although my reduced salary  didn't mean I had to skip any  meals it still made a big statement in Detroit.  "I discovered that people accept a lot of pain if everybody's  going through the chute  together. If everybody is suffering equally, you can move a  mountain. Our struggle also  had its dark side. To cut expenses, we had to fire a lot of  people. There was a lot of  agony. We preserved the company, but only at enormous expense for a great many human  beings.  "After I cut my own salary I  started on the executives. We  cut salaries in all but the lowest  levels. We left the secretaries  alone, they deserved every cent  they made.  "The union had always had  the attitude that the executives  are fat cats and the workers get  screwed. I said, 'Well, now  you're looking at some pretty  skinny fat cats.' I don't mean it  was easy. I talked tough to  them. Our workers made some  pretty big concessions. Right  away, $1.15 an hour came out  of their pay cheques, that  amount grew to $2 an hour.  Over a 19-month period the  average working guy at Chrysler  gave up close to $10,000.  "One of the provisions of the  loan guarantees was an  employee stock ownership plan  for our workers. It cost us $40  million a year for four years but  it made good economic sense. If  you let workers share in the profits they're more motivated to  do a good job.  "there are those who  thought this was the first step to  socialism but I pointed out that  the big pension plans own plenty of stock, a large chunk of  GM arid many other major  ;pUbJUciy traded companies. So  what?s; wrong with cutting the  workefs in while they're working? I don't see anything wrong  with the workers owning a piece  of the action. It doesn't interfere with good management;.  What do I care if the company's  stock is owned by a broker's accountant on Wall Street or by  Joe Blow who works on the  assembly line. Which one can  do more for me? <  "During 1980 I went to every  single Chrysler plant in order t(j  speak directly to the workers  and had sessions with the plans  supervisors. We didn't always  agree, but just having the  chance to talk together was a  big step forward. That's communication, the chairman talking to the guy on the floor?  Everybody hears and everybody  feels part of it. I'd like to do U  more often. ;  "I call this equality of  sacrifice. When I started to  sacrifice I saw other people dq  what was necessary. That's how  Chrysler pulled through. It  wasn't the loans that saved us?  although we needed them badly^  It was.the hundreds of millions  of dollars that were given up by  everybody involved." 2  More about union/management co-operation next week.

Who would  want to wish that upon their  own generation? In fact, your  statement is so far out, John,  that I've only seen it in one  other place, and that was in a  "good-will" newsletter ��� that  originated with the New York  based Lucis Trust organization.  The Lucis Trust, incidentally,  had its origins as the Lucifer  Publishing Company, founded  by Alice Bailey. I trust that  every reader will recognize at  least one of those names.  Oh, and you mentioned  Ethiopia. My .facts may be  several months out-of-date, but  I read recently that the pro-life,  Christian organization named  World Vision has provided  more assistance in the Ethiopian  famine crisis than any other  private organization. And I  know personally that there are  pro-lifers right here in our town  who have channelled considerable funds to them for that  purpose.

When we find a harassed  woman, surrounded by screaming, demanding children, and  she, struggling alone to settle  their differences, while Dad is  off to the beer parlour or attending a hockey or football game  with this buddies, we have further evidence of the presence or  in this case the lack of presence  of the much esteemed Common  Man.  The power and the influence  of the Common Man touches us  in all walks of life. His presence  is felt everywhere, in the home,  the work place, management,  and in government, most often  to our detriment and seldom to  our benefit.  How else can we account for  the ever increasing deaths upon  our highways, the deterioration  of our educational standards,  the pollution of our lakes and  rivers with industrial wastes and  sewage, acid rain, the destruction of our forests and  parklands, the erosion of much  of our precious topsoil, the  tragedy of our wandering youth  and the unemployed, the  menace of our exploding  population and last but not least  the massive public indifference  to the greatest peril of all, the  mounting threat of nuclear war  and the tampering with the very  heavens above us in a desperate  search for new and more effective ways to destroy all life upon  this planet.  May we then beseech you,  The Great Common Man, to  pull up your socks and look  about you. Our future, if there  is one, and the future of our  children, depends upon you.  You hold the destiny of all  mankind in the palm of your  hand.  Hec Rutherford  Hedley, B.C.  Support business  Editor: ... ........

It's as if  they're saying the only crime  worthy of capital punishment is  the crime of being unwanted.)  But I could give you the names  of many strongly pro-life individuals who have given their  lives to helping overcome the  world's ills (have you ever heard  tne term "Medical Missionaries", or the names of other  Christian organizations such as  the Mennonite Central Committee or Food for the  Hungry?). On the other hand, I  have never heard of anyone of  the pro-abortion stance who has  dedicated their lives to feeding  the hungry and helping the sick  and destitute.  Rick Andrews  Gibsons, B.C.

Firstly, at the general meeting  of the Davis Bay/Wilson Creek  Community Association of  February 11, 7:30 p.m., we will  not only have guest speaker  Shirley Bower, on gardens, but  will have a word from your  representative, Clark Renney,  who attended the recent meeting  in Sechelt concerning  amalgamation. He can answer  only a few questions. As it has  already been reported, we must  wait until the complete study is  published in April. However,  your executive is on top of the  situation and will remain so.  Secondly, only 11 parents attended the "Let's Talk About  Schools" meeting on February  7 at Davis Bay school. The  school act has not been revised  since 1958. This does concern  revision and upgrading of the  school act. The government  defines "education" as ongoing, 24 hours a day input from  parents, TV, and our environment in general. "School" is 6  hours of teacher instruction.  The minister of education has  given the parents and teachers  in B.C. until March 15 to  answer a set of questions concerning revision of the school  act. Not much time! Parents  and Grandparents���get your  copy of the questions and some  instruction from Davis Bay  school, 885-9523 and let's get  the school act into the space  age.  The indoor sports day on  February 1 was won by the  Scallops, followed by' the  Limpets. Way to go Scallops!  On Valentine's Day, Thursday February 14, the afternoon  at school will be devoted to  reading, after an 11 to 12 lunch  break. At 2:50 p.m. the children  are releasing helium balloons  containing their message for the  world. Watch them fly away.  Report cards will be out on  March 22 and parent conferences from March 25 to 28.  Spring break follows from  March 29 through April 8.  Thirdly, the B.C. Heart  Foundation need canvassers for  their fund drive beginning  February 14 until February 28.  The ladies to contact are Marie  Steel 885-2156 and Faye Hansen  885-3575. We all know of someone who suffers from heart  disease. Your donation helps  get a little nearer to finding  answers to this problem.  Gwen    in    Gibsons  Have a heart  by Gwen Robertson, 886-3780  "We've touched the heart of  someone you know" is the key  phrase that the B.C. Heart  Foundation is using this year.  The Heart campaign begins  on February 14 and continues  until the end of the month.  Canvassers are needed and  those willing to assist are asked  to call Mrs. Elizabeth Johnston  at 886-7418 and in the Gower-  Point area Joan Mahlman at  886-2125.  The B.C. Heart Foundation  is not part of the United Way  and depends on its appeal. The  risk of heart attack increases  from one to 10 times that of the  non-smoker - depending, of  course, on the quantity smoked.  The efforts of the Foundation  are having some results in that  Canadian men are smoking less  but they are less successful with  adult women who are still  smoking at the same rate as they  did 20 years ago. More and  more young girls are taking up  smoking cigarettes while consumption by boys is relatively  unchanged.  These statistics are truly alarming as not only are these  young women harming  themselves but they are also  harming future young children.  The earlier smokers begin* the  greater the risk of future heart  disease for them and their offspring.  The ingestion of smoke from  other smokers is also harmful to  other family members and to  non-smokers everywhere.  Be good to yourself. Have a  heart and help with the canvassing.  Girl Guides  Guides  of Canada    du Canada  PUBLIC NOTICE  Take Notice That pursuant to Bylaw No. 475'cited as  "Sewer Improvements Loan Authorization Bylaw No. 475.  1984" the Council of the Town of Gibsons intends to  construct an expansion to the Sewer Treatment Plant by  Dayton & Knight Limited.  And That said plans may be viewed during regular  1       business hours at the Municipal Office.  And That to .finance the construction of the said works the  Council proposes to borrow by way of debentures a sum  not exceeding seven hundred twenty-five thousand dollars  ($725,000) repayable not later than 20 years from .the date  of issue to such debentures.  And That unless within thirty days of the second and last  publication of this Notice, not less than one-twentieth in  number of the electors petition the Council for the  submission of the said bylaw for the assent of the electors,  the Council may adopt such bylaw.  And That this is the first of two publications of this Notice.  by George Cooper  Canvassers for the B.C.  Heart Foundation will be in  your neighbourhood starting  Valentine's Day, February 14.  One of the most common  factors in heart attack is high  blood pressure which has been  labelled the Silent Killer. Never  sensed by the victim in any way,  high blood pressure can cause  him disability and even death.  Yet it is ignored by half of the  two million in Canada who  have it.  Since high blood pressure can  occur at any age, each of us  could well consider regular  check-ups. Control is quite simple by drug and diet therapy.  Do support education  and  research in heart disease.  COURSES  Among the offerings this  winter in the Continuing Education branch of our School  District No. 46 is a series of Five  talks entitled "Do Banks Play  Fair?".  Hayden Killam, the instructor, says the title is just a device  to catch the eye of the student  and that his talks will be quite  factual, dealing with the  hazards to the borrower in the  fine print of loan and mortgage  contracts. "The talks will open  their eyes about borrowing  money���especially those who  are 20 and 30 years old," says  Killam.  He adds, "Each session is a  separate unit, and if some folk  can't get to the first session  tomorrow evening, they can  easily join the ciass ihe next  week."  The idea for this class arose  when Hayden was looking for a  project he had to do in community work. He was glad when  his idea was approved by the  school board member who  heads the continuing education  committee.  Seeing that Hayden had been  convicted of threatening a bank  official, and has another matter  pending related to the bank, he  was asked if he might not show  a little prejudice in his series of  talks.  "Not at all," says Hayden.  "There will be no bias on my  part whatsoever in these talks.  There are many pitfalls hidden  in the borrowing processes, and  I wish to use my experience in  business to point these dangers  out. I really feel people,  especially young people, need  the warning."  The first session is tomorrow  Tuesday, February 12 in  Chatelech, and the remainder in  Gibsons locations. Phone  885-9368.  SFU  honour  For ��� academic excellence  Mary Dufour, of Gibsons, has  won a place tin the university's  prestigious honour roll.  Less than 100 of SFU's more  than 11,000 undergraduate  students qualified for the  honour roll in 1984.

SENIORS' HOCKEY  If you want some action this  Saturday, February 16, it's the  annual grudge match between  the RCMP and the Wamimanas  hockey team at the Sechelt  arena. Even if vou're not a big  hockey fan it's fun to see these  two teams battle it out.  The main object is to raise  funds for St. Mary's Hospital  so if you want to make a pledge  for either team phone the  RCMP office in Sechelt or Gibsons. Game starts at 8:30 p.m.  CANVASSERS COMING  Canvassers for the B.C.  Heart Foundation are often  turned down at the door  because people confuse it with  the Variety Club Telethon  which takes place around the  same time and also uses a heart  as its symbol. But the Variety  Club works for kids. The Heart  Fund works for everyone., .     ;  The Heart Foundation says,  "We've touched the heart of someone you know". Canadian  research has been responsible  for many cardiovascular advances in the past 30 years:  pacemakers, hospital coronary  care units which have reduced  deaths by over 30 per cent,  surgery to correct one of the  major defects resulting in "blue  babies", hypothermia for  lowering body temperatures  during heart surgery.  Heart disease remain our  number one killer. It's a busy  month for charitable donations  but see if you can "find it in  your heart" to give to your  door-to-door Heart Fund canvasser. And if you can help canvass in this area phone Corrie  Ross at 885-9250 to see if she  still needs help.

SKIPPING AT SCHOOL  The Sechelt elementary  school youngsters are not skipping out, they are skipping for  Hearts in teams, and will be  looking for pledges. Already  practising for the past two months, they will be in fine shape  for the events to take place on  February 28 and March 1.  Last year they raised a surprising amount for the Heart  Fund.  HEART FUND APPEAL  The B.C. Heart Foundation  annual appeal for funds starts  on February 14 and ends  February 28.  The key phrase this year is  "We've touched the heart of someone you know". Canvassers  will be out all over the Sunshine  Coast from Valentine's Day on.  Some important facts;  Canada has been instrumental  in many cardiovascular advances in the past 30 years:  pacemakers, coronary artery  transplants, replacement of  damaged heart valves with  human valves, coronary care  units in hospitals, surgical procedure to correct one of the major defects resulting in "blue  babies" and hypothermia, a  technique for lowering body  temperatures during heart  surgery. Eighty-eight cents out  of every dollar given in this canvass goes directly to research  and public information.  The B.C. Heart Foundation  promotes lifestyle changes to  reduce chances of acquiring  heart disease and stroke, believing that a minor modification in  diet, exercise and mental attitude can make a difference.  SECHELT SENIORS  The Sechelt Seniors Branch  #69 was forced to cancel its  Valentine's Dance, February 9,  due to the snow. However, they  will try for February 16, provided the weather co-operates.  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  IMPORTANT MEETINGST  There are a couple of important local meetings which con-  em everyone in the area and  which you should mark on your  calendar. As most of you are  probably aware, each- school  area is having a special meeting  of which the theme is "Let's  Talk About Schools".  The date for the Halfmoon  Bay school meeting is Tuesday,  February 19 at 7 p.m. This is a  meeting for the public and not  just the parents. Parents have  already made their feelings very  clear, but not much has been  heard from those of you who do  not have children in the school  system and who are just as entitled to have their views heard  and discussed. This will be your  opportunity to express your  views on the matter and your input and opinions should be  coming forth. All of us who pay  taxes are involved, and rather  than go around telling your  friends what you think, here, is  your chance to have your viewpoint discussed and noted.  February 19 is also the date  of the Area "B" Ratepayers'  Association general meeting  which will be held at the community use roorn in West  Sechelt. It is hoped that  residents of the West Sechelt  area will attend as well as those  from the Halfmoon Bay area.  Peggy    Connor    our-   area  representative will be in attendance as will Oddvin Vedo who  will discuss economic development in the area. Jim Johnson  will be present to answer questions on the settlement plan.  The time is 8 p.m.  The Halfmoon Bay Recreation Association will have their  annual general meeting on'  February 26 at 7:30 p.m. at the  Steve Seenstra home on Francis.  Everyone will be welcome, particularly new members who are  interested in getting involved  with recreation for the youth of  the area.  WELCOME HOME  Ronnie Dunn of Redroffs has  returned home from a most enjoyable trip to Sydney in  Australia where she visited with  daughter Debbie. After haying  spent six weeks ..w'itli  temperatures in the hundreds it  was quite a shock to get back to  the kind of weather we are experiencing right now. Welcome  home Ronnie.

RENO WINNERS:  The Lions club together with  the Sunshine Coast Writers  Forge held a successful Reno  night at Green Court last Saturday night. Winners of the door  prizes were Kathy Olchewski  and Jeannie Warren.

Occasionally one hears a nice little  story which is worth passing  along and that happened the  other day. A little pupil of Halfmoon Bay school was the winner of $5 for guessing correctly  the Coast News' "Guess  Where" contest. Little Aurea  Flynn was the lucky winner, but  instead of spending the money  on something for herself Aurea  decided to share her luck with  the rest of her classmates, so she  rented a movie for the school  video.  1 thought that was just great,  and although I don't know  Aurea I know she must be a nice  wee lass.  s  t  Diesel Engine Rebuilding   ���  Industrial Parts  Hwy 101 883-26 __H  Madeira Par*. ���"w _ ~ m  ���_���.��������� juu)..) j yjwmuui})��� uJi')j^-M.!.';M.;.M-l^.ii.u.u,...,i,  ^(4UttlililifcttMttMri^fc  I'.w.ijLiu.ijj.fti'.'.Pyi  L  Area F APC Meeting  MONDAY, FEB. 18  7:00 p.m. Langdale Library  Representatives of Area E & F also attending  EVERYONE WELCOME  Topic:       Fish Farming  Speaker:  Oddvin Vedo  Economic Development Commissioner  tt  -Defer Income Tax  -Save For Retirement  Saturday, Feb. 16  11 a.m. to 3 p.m.  ��� Coffee & Donuts  ��� Accountant in Attendance  Bank of Montreal  Sechelt Branch  (Brian Beecham, C.A.)

LIFE BEFORE THE BRIDGE  Pixie Daly of Halfmoon Bay  sent in a delightful account of  life on Beaver Island before the  bridge at Canoe Pass joined it  to the mainland. Activities and  travel were determined by the  tides, since the Pass is navigable  only at high tide.. Social occasions could last all night, she  recalls, as guests waited for the  turn of the tide.  Lewella Duncan remembers  that funerals in those days  would come by boat to the dock  at her father Martin Warnock's,  where the coffin would be pulled up a ramp in a special cart.  The funeral party would disembark and walk to the little  cemetery, then go home by  boat, always watching those  tides.  The cemetery was donated by  the Warnock family in memory  of their young son in 1933. The  first person buried there was  Mrs. Nettie Klein. When you  are passing one day, stop at  Forest View and have a quiet  walk around; you will find  many familiar Harbour names  on the markers.

February  14th we think of our ioved ones and the need to express our  love in a special way.  It may be a note or card that says what we feel, because all  too often we are incoherent when it comes to expressing our  feelings. It may be a plant or bouquet of flowers; it may be a  candle light dinner (home cooked or otherwise); it may be an  item of attire or a piece of jewellery, or it may simply be a  moment when you take your loved one in your arms and say  "I love you".  Whatever way we express it,���it's important to do it,���and  not only on St. Valentine's Day. In these stressful times it is  important that we be kind and loving toward each other. It is  something each human being needs and seeks.  Speaking of the heart, let me remind you that February is  Heart Month, and the campaign for financial support commences on February 14th and ends February 28th.  "REALWIN"  K.L.D.

The Foundation has distributed  brochures claiming that 86' out of every dollar collected  goes to heart disease research and public education. It is  realized, of course that research is useless if the public is  unaware of its findings.  Since 1955, there has been a decline of 34% in death caused by cardio vascular diseases, which include heart failure  and strokes. This is significant and must be pursued even  more vigorously as an even larger proportion of our population reaches the age when these diseases strike.  It is, therefore, a pleasant coincidence that all of us can  contribute both to the well-being of our heart-love relationships, and the well-being of the heart of our loved ones in the  period of February 14 to 28th.

Mike Poole, a  former native of Granthams  Landing, was no exception. "I  left home when I was 15 and  went to work on a farm in  Alberta," he laughs.  Farmwork with its long hours  and low pay was not exactly  Mike's cup of tea, however. He  had always secretly yearned to  become a newspaper reporter so  he moved to Vancouver and  took a job on The Sun. "That  was 1954 and I started right at  the bottom," Mike recalls,  "filling paste-pots and sharpening pencils for Alan Morely.  But it wasn't dull. Those were  the glory days of the big rivalry  between The Province and The  Sun. There were all sorts of  Damon Runyon-esque things  going on."  One such involved the tragic  Mount Slessie airline crash  where many members of the  Saskatchewan Roughriders  team were killed. "The Province had scooped The Sun  completely on this one,"  remembers Mike. "They had  three   editions   on   the   street  before we even got a line on it.  My editor sent me over to The  Province to steal sheets of the  next paper from their pressroom and the guys tossed me  right off the loading dock.  Competition was wild back  then."  Mike, newly-married and  ambitious, wanted to advance  himself so he took a job on the  night desk. It proved to be a real  killer. "Seven consecutive guys  had been fired from the job  before I took it over. You had  to handle eight teletype  machines, 10 phone lines, six  radios and Muzak." Mike stuck  it out but the pace and pressure  eroded his health. "I went down  to 145 pounds, ended contracting TB and had to spend a year  in a sanitarium." When he was  cured, Mike returned to The  Sun for a couple of years as a  junior reporter.  "It became clear to me," says  Mike, "that if I wanted to  become the paper's 'Man in  Moscow', I'd i needed some  more education." When a  wealthy relative offered him the  chance to spend two years at  Washington and Lee University, he jumped at it and moved  to Virginia with his growing  family.  To be continued  Channel Ten  Wednesday & Thursday  February 13 & 14  7:00 p.m.  7:00 p.m.: The annual Heart  Fund drive for funds begins this  week and Coast Ten looks at  resources for those with heart  problems on the Sunshine coast.

Players prepare  spring farce  The cast is keen, rehearsals  are well underway, the costumes  are almost complete. Now all  that's needed to bring Driftwood Players' production of  George Feydeau's "The Ladies'  Tailor" to life is some help  from neighbours and friends in  furnishing the set.  "The Ladies' Tailor" is a  French farce set at the turn of  the century, and has its full  complement' of romantic intrigues���and complications.  Director Betty Keller is a stickler  for authenticity, so here are a  few of the things deemed requisite to appropriately set the  mood.  As the title hints, a  dressmaker's dummy is mandatory and a treadle sewing  machine is a must.

From  what I observed during my sailing years, many of them had  chosen the life for the same  reasons I had: to see the world,  enjoy the enticements of foreign  ports and cast off the shackles  that bound the landlubbers to  ���their prosaic life ashore.  ;    Whether it could be termed  Jan act of regression I do not  I know but it appeared that many  * of us had abandoned the three  * R's of our school days and had  -now embarked on a career of  tn��si nfws  CLASSIFIEDS  B & J Stone  Hjilfmoon  Bny  until noon p=nnrH..u  sorts that could be summed up  as the three B's -Bars, Brothels  and Brawls!  If you can remember from  my last column, we were on the  way to Alexandria, Egypt, with  a full cargo of Chilean nitrate. I  have forgotten after so many  years what our crossing of the  Atlantic was like but eventually  we arrived in that port and,  much to my chagrin, I learned  that Captain Craig (Bible Bill)  had refused to issue me a shore  pass although my shipmates  were free to wander at will and  enjoy whatever pleasures of the  flesh (and they were many) that  the port had to offer.  I learned later that our good  Captain's reasons for not letting  me go ashore were that he  feared there would be a repetition of my performance in San  Antonio, Chile, when I had  landed in the clink with the lady  I called the Green Hornet. He  was denying me a pass strictly  for my own protection.  Looking back on it all now,  GIBSONS  TAX SERVICE  Income Tax Preparation  All business strictly confidential  A.

Not being present,  I can only surmise that the first  two B's having been attended  to, a magnificent brawl was  necessary and inevitable as a  grand finale to the evening's  entertainment.  Among our crew was a  character named 'Wild Jim'  Mckinnon. He was from either  Nova Scotia or Prince Edward  Island and it was rumoured that  he had been kicked out of every  police force in Canada, local,  provincial, and RCMP, in addition to several of the same institutions in the USA. Very  quiet and reserved while going  about his duties on board (he  was an AB), he seemed to  undergo a complete metamorphosis once he was ashore and  had a few drinks under his belt.  On this particular occasion in  the melee that ensued on the  streets of Alexandria, the Egyptian mounted police appeared  on the scene and one of them  slashed 'Wild Jim' across the  face with his riding whip. That  was all that was needed to get  our   wild   man   from   the  Man times going. He grabbed  the whip, jerked the poor  policeman off his horse and  gave him a thorough dusting  over with his own whip. When  he and the others arrived back -  at the ship flushed but triumphant, Mc Kinnon gave me the  whip as a souvenir and I still  have it on the wall of my cottage.  As expected, the Egyptian  police authorities came aboard  the next day to complain to the  Captain and were given permission to search the ship and interview participants in the previous  night's disturbance, but they  never found the whip. I had  stuffed it into the flour barrel in  the galley and they did not look  there!  As I recall it we were hot very  long in Alexandria and the  10,000 tons of nitrate were soon  unloaded. (I guess Nasser must  have needed it badly for the  coming show-down with England and France.)  Speculation was rife on board  as to where we would be going  next. We were not left long in  doubt; our next port of call was  to be Torrevieja, Spain, for a  full cargo of salt to be delivered  to Colombo, Ceylon.  We arrived at Spanish port  situated about midway between  the two coastal cities of Alicante  and Cartagena and again, much  to my annoyance, I found out  that the curfew imposed on me  by our Captain was still in  force: there was 'no shore leave  for the chief cook!'  How I circumvented that and  went ashore anyway is a story in  itself but it will have to wait till  some other time.  DON'T WAIT  ANY LONGER!

Over 60 members of the  Chinook Swim Club participated in the first leg of the  annual Swimathon last week in  an effort to raise funds for their  amateur competitive swimming  program. Because of last weeks'  inclement weather some 20  other participants will be swimming next week.  Members are allowed to swim  a maximum of 200 lengths or  for two hours and thus far  Michael Wilson, Dave Webb  and Ruth Duffin have completed the 200 laps before the  two hour limit.  Due in large part to the efforts of club president Dan  Cross, coaches Ruth Duffin and  Dave Webb, the Chinooks are  now ranked second in B.C.  behind the Dolphin Swim Club.  Dan Cross told the Coast  News that several team  members have reached Level I  standard in their respective  events within one or two  seconds of provincial swimming  laurels.  Despite the logistical problems involved in integrating a  municipal swimming schedule  , with the Chinooks educational/competitive program the  Chinook club continues to attract both the novice and prospective competitive swimmer.  To   date  the  club -boasts  a  membership of over 100.  Because of the diversity of the  Chinook's program, increasing  membership, and the need to  provide   individual   swimmers  with more specialized training,  the club may be looking toward  renting more pool time to accommodate what Dan Cross  describes as "some really  talented young swimmers".

Planning  Continued from page 16  to this; "We would like to put it  together as a package, rather  than do it in a piece meal way."  The committee's feelings are  that the town needs protection  from liability should there be  problems with flooding, especially in the spring run-off, but  McRae pointed out that the  covenant protects, not the  town, but the people who own  the .property. The matter was  tabled by the committee who  will hand down a decision on  February 19.  A letter from Deborah Over-  bye has been received by the  Planning Committee making a  suggestion that a Farmers'  .,. Marketwould be an asset to the  town of Gibsons, especially in  the summer months when there  would be an influx of tourists to  the area.  "We keep talking in general  terms," said Alderman Burnside, "about attracting tourist  traffic to the town, but we  haven't done a lot. Anything  that lends colour or character to  the town in summer should be  encouraged."  It was therefore decided Ms  Overbye be encouraged to approach the operators of the Gibsons marina with her proposal,  and, should they not be interested, to advise her that  Dougal Park is available.

Ave.  Vancouver, B.C.  V5M 1C3  GIBSONS RCMP  In last week's news, we  reported that a motor vehicle  accident from January 25 didn't  result in injuries for the driver  of the car hit by the suspect  vehicle. The victim of the impaired driver arrested at the  scene of the accident did receive  injuries and was taken to  hospital for treatment.  Gibsons RCMP are still trying to locate the owner of six  collector's plates found in  Langdale near the ferry terminal last August 13. The plates  are of various designs and all efforts by police to locate the  rwwner have so far been fruitless.  When inquiring, please quote  file #84/2293.  Last week's weather was  responsible for at least a dozen  reports of motor vehicle accidents involving property  damage.  On the first, Pratt "Road resident Laurel Thompson was  taken to hospital following a  two vehicle motor accident on  Highway 101 near the Peninsula  Hotel. Thompson was driving  south bound when she lost control of her vehicle and struck  K&E Towing's truck which was  facing the highway north  bound. K&E Towing's truck  was in the process of removing a  car from the ditch when it was'  struck by the Thompson vehicle.  Paul Powers reported the  theft of this chainsaw on  February 5. The chainsaw was  stolen from the back of Powers'  pick-up while parked on School  Road in lower Gibsons. Police  were able to follow footsteps  left in the show by the thief and  the chainsaw was recovered. A  local man has been charged with  the theft.  On February 4, Nick Husby  reported the theft of a motorcycle, a 1983 Honda XL 100, red  in colour, taken from his  garage. The bike is valued at  $900.  SECHELT RCMP  Two thefts were reported on  February 1. A water pump  valued at $700 was stolen from  a Middlepoint residence and a  $300 bicycle was stolen from a  storage area located in the  underground garage of the  Royal Terraces Apartments.  On February 5, thefts were  reported from Irvines Landing,  Sehsal Creek in Jervis Inlet and  Selma Park. Liquor was stolen  from Irvines Landing Marina  while the owners were away. A  quantity of fuel and some slings  were stolen from a Sehsal Creek  shake claim, and $150 worth of  steel pipe was stolen from a construction site located on Benner  Road in Selma Park.  Two more thefts were  reported on February 7. A portable power plant was stolen  from a summer residence  located in the Salmon Inlet area  and a battery valued at $50 was  stolen from a truck parked at  Brian's Auto Body in Sechelt.  A motor vehicle accident was  reported from the top of the hill  on Redrooffs Road. A woman  visiting the area from Alberta  lost control of her car and ended up in the ditch. The woman  and her passenger were taken to  St. Mary's for treatment of  minor injuries. Property  damages reached a total of  $1,500.  32.

Last week's winner was David Marchuk,  Box 263, Gibsons, who correctly located the "No War" sign on the  Boe fence in Wells Lane.  Tourist grant  gives five jobs  "We are very pleased," said  Richard Tomkies of the Sunshine Coast Tourism Association when he learned of the approval of the Canada Works  grant, which will give five people work for varying lengths of  time and will lead to permanent  positions for two, if work progresses as it is hoped.  The Tourism Association will  have a worker for 50 weeks,  assisting Anne Langdon and the  newly formed Sunshine Coast  Mariculture Association will  have an administrator for some  30 weeks. This will prove invaluable, since the association is  involved in many projects, including the 1986 Mariculture  Showcase and there are a growing number of members who  are involved in many aspects of  mariculture.  "We.are doing all we can to  make this work yield permanent  positions," said Tomkies, in a  conversation with the Coast  News. "Everything we are doing is towards that end."  It is hoped that work will  commence on March 1,  although the canoe route may  be delayed due to weather conditions.  Sports fishermen  call for action  Continued from page 1  members that it is a viable thing  to write to the DFO asking for  some form of predator control.  "As long as we (people) are  in the game, the rules are changed. Nature is not taking its  course because we have changed  the rules," he said. Some concern was expressed over the  potential environmentalist protest, such as the Greenpeace  protests in the Eastern seal  hunt.  "You have to realise," said  Ottway, "that they don't win.  When you show them up for  what they are, they're done. No  one showed them up back East  which is why they were successful. Something has to be  done (about the seal problem)."  Seals' natural predators are the  I eat all my fruit and veggies!

Members were urged to make  their concerns known to their  parliamentary representatives.  "They work for you," said Ottway, "make them do their  job."  There was also a resolution  passed asking for an overall herring closure to allow stocks to  build up. It was also pointed out  that when seine nets were used  for herring catches sometimes  up to 60 per cent of the fish  ��� caught were small salmon fry,  leading to an even greater depletion of dwindling stocks. The  resolution also suggested allowing only gill nets in the herring  catch. Herring are fish which  live for eight years, four of  them as immature fish, and four  as spawners. A two-year ���  moratorium on herring fishing  would allow present immature  fish to reach spawning age, and  allow mature fish the chance to  spawn in greater numbers.  At the conclusion of the  meeting a committee was formed to further examine the  resolutions and make recommendations to the DFO.  Members of the committee are  Cliff Bowles, John Clayton,  Don Fowler, Bill Mehan, Britt  Varcoe and possibly Pat  Mulligan who was nominated to.  the committee in his absence.  ��� 10,000 sq. ft. of  heated, gov't,  approved  storage  ��� Dust-free  storage  inclosed  wooden pallets.

The Careful Movers  Custom Packing, Storage, Local & Long Distance Moving  896-2664  mi  The Gibsons Rugby Club has  been granted permission to construct a sundeck and an addition to the Armour's Beach  Hall, as well as installing a pole  with lights at Brothers Park to  enable night-time practises.  This decision was made at the  February 6 Gibsons Planning  Committee meeting, where  other business included discussion on survey problems, extension of time for a lingering bylaw, and a suggestion from a  public-spirited citizen about a  Farmers' Market for the Gibsons area.  Gibsons Planner Rob Buchan  pointed out that there would be  some parking problems at the  Armour's Beach site, and that  the deck may present somewhat  of a problem due to the steep  topography of the land, but he  recommended granting permission for .the rugby club's proposed addition since it will improve the town's property.  Alderman Norm Peterson expressed some concern about  drinking at the hall, mainly on  the open deck which will  overhang the public beach, very  popular with children. The  planning committee decided to  grant the request subject to  there being no consumption of  alcohol on the deck during the  daylight hours.  Again, Planner Buchan  pointed out advantages to  granting a request to erect a  light pole at Brothers Park. The  pole will improve the town's  property and expenses will be  borne by the rugby club.  Land surveyor Larry Penon-  zek was on hand to present to  the planning . committee infor-  Low prices  shut mill  The Can for mill at Port  Mellon will be shutdown from  March 11 to April 9 for what is  described as a 'production curtailment'. The shutdown will affect half the workforce, approximately 200 production  workers.  The reason given for this  closure is an 'over-supply of  pulp on the world market'.  Can for maintains it cannot afford to sell pulp at the present  prices. r  Union spokesman Steve  Holland told the Coast News:  "This is another lockout but in  a different way from last year.  Last year they claimed it was a  labour dispute; we (the union)  said at the time it was a move to  reduce inventory and improve  prices."  Holland said that there.may  be another curtailment later this  year   'hopefully  during   prime  vacation   time'   which   would...  lessen the impact.  mation on the Headlands Road  survey, and also problems concerning the Maxwell property,  which has also been affected by  survey errors.  The planner stressed the point  that it was never the idea of the  town to reclaim land at the expense of the owners, but rather,  "to draw attention to their  vulnerability. We musi  recognize the existing situation,  and resolve the problem.'  It was recommended by Planner Buchan that the Clerk-  Treasurer, Lorraine Goddard,  explore the possibilities of  claiming funds from the Survey  Errors Fund to cover the expense involved in straightening  out the situation.  Jon McRae was present at the  meeting with John Kavanagh to  plead his case for an extension  to the unadopted Bylaw No.  350-7, which affects the Ritz  Motel property and Charman  Creek. McRae and Kavanagh  asked for a six month extension,  by which time they hoped to  have settled on a direction the  development of the property is  to take and to have a sale tied  up.  In the absence of the Planning Committee chairman,  Alderman Ron Neilson, the  planner conveyed the  chairman's feelings which,  although he has no objection to  granting an extension, he would  wish it to be dependent on the  registration of a Restrictive  Covenant, which was required  when the by-law was first proposed.
