 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  VICTORIA, B.C.  V8V 1X4  85.4  House-numbering furore  System switch sought  ���Ne��flle Conmy photo  lona Campagnola addresses an audience of Elphinstone high school students.  Liberal president on Coast  lona charms students  National president of the  Liberal Party, lona Campagnola, was on the Sunshine  Coast Thursday, February 21,  to attend a breakfast meeting at  the Bella Beach Motel in Davis  Bay and then to address the  combined grade 11 and 12  classes at Elphinstone high  school, finding time in between  to appear on Channel 10, where  ;she was interviewed by Jenny  McClain.  Addressing the students, Ms  Campagnola, who was accompanied by Lauris Talmey, president of the National Liberal  Women's Commission, spoke  ;of changes in the.wqrld and .the.,  direction our society is taking.  \ "After the war we had 25  golden years, but now  jeverything has changed," she  ��aid, pointing to the rise of the  Third World, massive military  build-ups and the move from  the industrial age to the age of  the computer.  "All we used to rely on has  altered," she continued. "We  used to think that we inherited  our planet from our forebears;  now we know that we borrow it  from those who lie ahead.  You," Ms Campagnola told the  students, "are the masters of  our age.  "What do you believe? Do  we have a right to a clean environment, a secure job, a  guaranteed income, profit sharing in our jobs, labour unions?  What about health care? In the  future will all who need health  care get it, or will it be the rich  who get the new hearts and the  poor who get nothing?  "We need to develop an international social conscience...  we need to become creative, innovate, thinking human beings  to solve the problems ahead.....,  "Each human being has a  contribution to bring to the  table...don't ever sell yourselves  short," Ms Campagnola urged  the students. "If you take the  easy way, you'll end up with a  society you hate."  In answer to the question,  "How do 1 prepare myself for  the future?", Ms Campagnola  said, "Learn how to learn, take  yourself seriously, try to be your  most excellent self. Think of  your own direction, not what  other people think. Don't allow  stereotypes to rule your life."  When asked about the recent  elections, Ms Campagnola said  she thought it was a very  American style campaign.  "Lots of people are now moving from positions they took in  the campaign...I would rather  be defeated telling the truth  than elected for something I  don't believe in."  As for the Cruise tests and  Canada's recent moves towards  more military spending and a  position closer to the USA, Ms  Campagnola said, "Love Mr.  Trudeau or hate Mr. Trudeau,  .���; he was an independent vbiceitin,,  Canada-US relations; We;  (Canada and the U.S.) are best  friends but it doesn't mean that  we have to agree with  everything the other says.  "There are 60,000 nuclear  weapons in the world today.  Testing the Cruise, and having  the Cruise means that there is  no longer any verifiability (of  nuclear weapons). If only 200  weapons could destroy the  world as we know it, what do  we need with 60,000?"  The Gibsons council meeting  ��������� of February 19 saw a disclosure  by Alderman John Burnside of  ^developments in the street  :} number system which ,have  ^arisen   at   two   'in   camera'  meetings at the Sunshine Coast  i Regional District (SCRD) on  ^February 14.  /Although the meetings were  'in camera', Alderman Burnside  said he had made it plain at  both meetings that he found  questionable the propriety of  discussing the systems 'in  camera', and therefore saw no  objection to reporting on the  question in public.  He reported that the meetings  were unhappy and stormy, with  one faction of the SCRD board  attempting to replace the Doug  Roy system with another devised by Tom Becker of Underwood McLellan. A motion to  do so went down to defeat, he  said, and a compromise amendment to install the Becker  system- at no cost to the  municipalities failed to be  seconded.  Directors of Areas E and F  have both expressed themselves  willing to take the Becker  system, and in fact, according  to Alderman Burnside, insist  upon it. Director Gurney he  said, made a motion to adopt  the system on a specified area  basis (Areas E and F) and indicated that only he and Director Shaske be allowed to vote on  the motion. The motion was  declared out of order.  The town of Gibsons and the  village of Sechelt both support  the Roy system; Planner Rob  Buchan said, "I've personally  r Mjked smost of,the town with  / Koy, arid concluded,' where the*  town is concerned, there are no  problems with its implementation.- In a convoluted area like  ours there may be problems  which may appear in any  system," he went on.  When a street numbering  system was first suggested at the  SCRD, the planning staff of the  SCRD were in support of the  Becker system, but the board  chose to over-ride their advice  and go with the Roy system.  Chief Dixon seeks re-election  Stan Dixon, who has just  completed his first two-year  term as chief of the Sechelt Indian Band, (SIB) is running for  a second term.  He has been instrumental in  bringing the SIB closer to self-  government which he sees as the  most important objective for  the Band at this time.  "Our ultimate aim is to be  totally self-sufficient," he told  the Coast News. "We are a part  of this society, and a resource  for this country. Giving us the  legislation (for self-government)  will benefit the whole community here.  "One of the repercussions  will be that our band members  will get to work. We have lots of  development projects on hold  right now, including the marina  development, a new barge  loading operation and a housing  project."  Dixon sees education as a  priority, not just for the  children but for older Band  members as well.  "Parents have to get involved  in their kids' education," he  said, "they have to help with  the homework, read to the kids,  be   interested."   There   are  presently 37 Band members in  adult education courses, some  at UBC, Capilano College and  Langara, as well as in local  salmon enhancement courses.  Alcohol is a big problem, said  Dixon, but feels that as self-  government becomes a reality  and self-esteem is raised, that it  will be easier to persuade people  to take advantage of the many  programs and courses available  in the area of alcohol and drug  abuse.  "The present Indian Act does  not motivate us," he said, "we  need to make a transition from  the present situation towards  more self-respect and self-  esteem. I am thinking of the  future, so that everyone has a  good life. I want to teach my  people   self-reliability."  Apathy is a stumbling block;  there are about 138 people who  are eligible to attend council  meetings, but at most there are  perhaps 40. One of the first  things Dixon plans to do if he is  re-elected is to make the voting  age 18 years, and to make the  terms of office three years, as  opposed to the present two.  Councillors are also running for  election, with 16 people standing for office.  "We need to develop our  pride. We can't have a culture  with apathy; those things don't  go hand in hand. When we have  our self-respect, we'll have our  culture," said Dixon.  "I try to live every day as a  Chief. It's a 24-hour job. I am  an example for the young people, and I deal with the elders  and the other people on a one to  one basis. I am accountable to  my own people. Being chief is a  very serious business to me."  Craigan and Joe challenge chief  Calvin Craigan, who has  served as chief of the Sechelt Indian Band (SIB) is once again  running for this office in the  coming elections. "I am deeply  concerned for the younger people," he told the Coast News,  "and I felt an obligation to my  people."  He sees self-government as an  important priority. "It has to be  pursued," he said, "it is inevitable that native people have  the option of self-government,  and the SIB is at the top of the  list to take it on.  "A lot of bands aren't really  prepared," said Craigan, "they  are still in the training stage.  Still, people have to be trained  in administration for our  band."  The Department of Indian  Affairs has encouraged a bad  attitude in native people, said  Craigan.  "The current recession has  shed some light on the Indian  problem. More white people are  having to live on welfare and  Please turn to page 17  Gilbert Joe, councillor on the  Sechelt Indian Band (SIB) from  1970 to 1976, is running for  chief in the coming elections.  "Why am I nmning? I'm optimistic about the future. I'd  like to see Band membership's  way    of    life    enhanced  economically and socially.  "The jurisdiction that status  Indians live under is the Indian  Act; it's suppressive in a lot of  ways. Bureaucrats, professional  people in the justice department  can interpret it the way they  want.  "The Indian Act protects the  Indian too, for example, in matters of taxation, but it has a lot  of anachronisms too. The directors of the Department of Indian Affairs are more lenient  these days - there used to be  health inspectors, school inspectors, you name it - but even so,  now that Canada has patriated  the constitution, the Status Indians are the only group under  separate jurisdiction. We are  still wards of the Crown."  Please turn to page 17  Late in 1984 it was decided that  a second opinion would be called for and Becker was consulted, with the result that some  of the directors, notably from  Areas D, E, and F, decided to  support the Becker system.  District Planner, Jim  Johnstone, said in a conversation with the Coast News, that  he has supported the Becker  system from the start, but has  tried to stay away from the  political wrangling that surrounds the question.  As for differences between  the two systems, he explains it,  "The Roy system is basically a  lot numbering system, not  house numbering. It doesn't  determine where the house  stands on the lot, and assigns  the number to the house as if it  were standing on the centre (of  the lot). :  "The Becker system is a  house number system, which  allows for differences in location on the lot, and therefore  allows for future subdivision  without withdrawing the  numbers on existing houses."  The question of costs has  naturally arisen; one system Is  close to completion and the  other, were it to be imf  plemented, would require fu��  ther work. :  No moves towards imi  plementation will take place uni-  til there is agreement on the  SCRD level, since the objective  is to establish a region-wide  system, which would give ambulances and fire trucks easier  and faster access to all homes  and properties.  r  Shooting  accidental  Twenty-year old Gibsons resident David Rexon, the victim  of last week's shooting accident, is presently in a Vancouver  hospital and has been diagnosed as being in a stable condition. Rexon was shot in the stomach February 16, 1985 at  1:34 p.m. in an upper Gibsons business area.  As a result of the shooting, 21-year old Gibsons resident,  Robert John Kaspar has been formally charged on three  separate counts. Kaspar is facing charges of handling a  firearm without reasonable precaution for the safety of other  persons, of possessing a restricted weapon without a registration certificate, and of criminal negligence and dangerous use  of a firearm.  Kaspar is presently in police custody awaiting court appearance.  Gibsons electors  The residents of Gibsons now have a Municipal Electors'  Association j and new members ace welcome according to a  letter received by; Gibsonscouncil. .Theasscciation hopes to  encourage interest in munidr^ affairs, m able to  carry suggestions from the electors to the council.    :-. ���  One of the aims of this new body is to monitor the proceedings of the council and to keep the electors informed. A  board of directors has been formed and any questions about  membership should be addressed to any one of the following;  Kurt Hoehne, 885-2657; Larry Trainor, 886-9458; Stuart  Metcalfe, 886-2810; Frank Campbell, 886-9527; Robert Maxwell, 886-2073; George Cooper, 886-8520.  Dr. Jim Petzold, Marilynn Kurp, R.N. and Ray de Graff are pictured  with the new heart monitor - defibrillator bought by the Kinsmen for  the Gibsons clinic and the people of the town of Gibsons and  area. ��� DtaneEtiUB photo  Kinsmen present  heart monitor  At a dinner for more than 40  people, Thursday, February 21,  Bill Sneddon, president of the  local Kinsmen Club, was able to  present to the Gibsons Medical  Clinic and to the town of Gibsons, a heart monitor and  defibrillator which has been  purchased with funds raised by  the Kinsmen and Kinettes of  this area.  The machine, which cost  about $8,500, will be located at  the Gibsons clinic. Representing  the clinic were Dr. Jim Petzold,  Dr. Overhill, Dr. Lehman and  Marilynn Kurp, R.N.. Alderman Norm Peterson was on  hand as the representative from  the town of Gibsons.  Haig Maxwell chaired the  heart monitor program which  saw all money raised matched,  dollar for dollar, by private  donations. Albert and Mary  Weal were also on hand and  were acclaimed for their contribution from the Christmas  lights money raised at their an  nual   display   in   the   Roberts  Creek area.  Ray de Graff, secretary of the  Kinsmen Club, told the Coast  News that the new monitor was  used on the first day it was in  the clinic. It is a portable unit,  he explained, and it is hoped  that eventually there will be ambulance personnel fully trained  to operate the defibrillator.  The Kinsmen have achieved  their objective in a short time;  the decision to take on the project was made in March, 1984,  but the first money was not raised until the summer.  "Now," said de Graff, "the  Kinsmen are looking for a new  major project, of about $5,000.  The Wagoner Shows will be on  the Coast in April, sponsored  by the Kinsmen, and the money  from those shows will go to  both the Gibsons and Sechelt  food banks."  The local club is hosting the  spring zone meetings here on  the Coast, with seven clubs attending from the lower  mainland. 2.  Coast News, February 25,1985  Educational  perspective  The education system, of course, cannot be perfect.  Further, given the considerable changes and stresses and  strains within society, it is no doubt in need of some fine  tuning. The spring of 1985 would appear to be as good a  time as any to begin to take stock of the situation and  begin some exploratory debate with a view of updating  how we educate our young people.  Part of the problem is that in this province a debate is  regarded as the first step towards an organized 'hate-in'.  We have lost sight of the fact that an exchange of differing  views in more civilized milieus than B.C. is presently, often  leads to considerable learning for both sides.  A second part of the problem is that the review presently  being called for is based on a totally unrealistic and absurd  time frame. We are going to seek public input on how to  change the Schools Act, process it through an intermediary  stage and have the whole thing completed, including digestion of public briefs and restructuring of the Schools Act  in three months from start to finish.  It is also true that the provincial government's attacks  on the education system have been so ham-handed and er-  ractic that the status quo is now being defended by those  who would be dis-satisfied with it were it not for this clumsy government.  Under the circumstances we can look to nothing constructive taking place in our education system in the immediate future. Premier Bennett's call for peace and partnership is what is needed alright but, coming now, it is  akin to finding the wolf suggesting consultation and cooperation to a herd of musk-oxen already circled to fight  to the death.  What the government is doing, besides making  everybody even remotely connected to schools desperately  unhappy, is making it impossible for a system in need of  overhaul to be rationally contemplated and improved.  Many closing ranks against the government onslaught  might have a few attacks on the system of their own to  launch in different circumstances.  from the files of the COAST NEWS  5 YEARS AGO  Secretary-treasurer Roy Mills of School District #46  told a joint meeting of school board and regional board  members that a new school will be approved for Davis  Bay.  Alderman Macdonald resigns from Sechelt council  due to increased business responsibilities.  10 YEARS AGO  Dr. Hugh Inglis retires after 40 years of practising  medicine, most of them in the Gibsons area.  After eight months of planning and waiting Leo Hubel  announces that he has finally received a neighbourhood  pub licence for his Cedar's Cafe.  The Driftwood Players tour local schools with a production of "Aladdin", directed by Mike Willis. This marks  the fourth consecutive year the local drama club has  entertained school children.  15 YEARS AGO  Council prepares a $200,000 by-law for the construction of a treatment plant for disposal of Gibsons sewage.  Mutual Construction company with a tender of $44,726  obtains the regional board contract for a reservoir to contain 1,000,000'gal Ions of domestic water.  20 YEARS AGO  ,     Canada's   new   flag   was  officially  raised   in   two  ceremonies; at the Gibsons RCMP headquarters and the  post office.  20 YEARS AGO  Work starts on clearing the lot for the new municipal  hall on South Fletcher Road.  25 YEARS AGO  Charles Craigan was elected chief of the Sechelt Indian Band in elections held last week.  Mrs. Mary Julius of the Sechelt Indian Band died last  week at the age of 109.  30 YEARS AGO  Pender Harbour Board of Trade requests Sakinaw and  Ruby Lakes be set aside as park sites.  Dog packs are reported to be playing havoc with deer  in the Pender Harbour area.  Fire causes approximately $35,000 damage to the Fairway Service Station across from the Pentecostal Church.  The Ivyette Beauty Salon and the Fiedler family living  quarters were also destroyed in the blaze.  35 YEARS AGO  Clarence Joe writes a column on behalf of the Sechelt  Indian Band titled "Voice of the Manitou".  A quote from E. Nestman's column in the Coast News,  "Made the trip to Roberts Creek the other night to the  VON Board meeting in Dr. Inglis' car. The doctor is a very  brave man to venture the trip, but on the way he brought  out his little black book and every spot on the road where  it was bad he would stop and refer to the book and we  would get through. Passed a couple of unfortunates on  the way home who had deserted their car. Left it high and  dry in the mud."  The Sunshine  CO-PUBLISHERS ADVERTISING  John Buriisldi- M.M. Vaughnn       J.

While precious metals were being sought from California to the Yukon  and Alaska, the Northwest coastline was being searched for furs. From  .the outset the fur trade both diminished and disrupted the native  population; both island and inlet villages. Nootka, Cto-Oose, Ahousat,  Nimpkisk, Kincolith, Takush, Harbledown, Mamalilaculla, Nahwitti,  Blunden Harbour, Village Island, and a host of other native communities either disappeared entirely or faded into mere shadows.  Salmon canneries, mines, logging operations, and mills brought surges  of Europeans and Asiatics to fill the vacuum left within aboriginal  homelands. Depletion of resources, political change, and economic  forces turned this tide by the middle of the twentieth century. Some  seemingly permanent settlements such as Anyox, Alice Arm, Surf Inlet,  Swanson Bay, Englewood, Ocean Falls, and Britannia Beach made  headlines in their day and at the time of their demise.

Musings  John Burnside  He started across the floor as  soon as I entered the tavern.  Bert had a copy of the latest  issue of the Coast News hanging  from one hand and the light of  battle in his eye.  I slid to the comparative safety of a wall seat with a table between me and the onrushing  Bert.  "This time you've gone too  far, Burnside," said Bert from  halfway across the bar.  "In which direction?" I enquired   politely   as   the   irate  publican  arrived  and  parked*^���>  himself on the other side of m$p  table. ><-v:  "In the usual direction, the  direction of the bilge," said  Bert.  "My, we are in good form today. Buy me a beer, Bert, and  tell me what troubles you."  Bert scowled, but he did  signal the waiter to bring over a  couple of half-pint draught  beer.  "This damn column of  yours," said Bert. "Honestly,  sometimes I think you should be  strung up."  "I'm glad you're not in  charge, Bert."  "You can be serious about  defending the pay increase given  the politicians, can you?"  "I'm not sure I was entirely  defending it, Bert. I think I said  that in large rural ridings such  as this a member of the  legislature has legitimately high  expenses if he's going to get  around and keep in touch at all.  There are many such ridings  throughout the province,  though this is probably one of  the worst.  "What I was trying to do was  sound a cautionary note about  the   tendency   of   virtually  Jake saves the day  everyone to start railing away at  the increase without considering  the merits of the case. Patrick  Kinsella has been taped  boasting to Simon Fraser  University marketing students  that he invented the idea of a  'restraint program' as a device  to help the Socred government  get elected. We know that the  whole exercise has been an unnecessary sham from the beginning but here we are shrieking  that we have to deny yet another  segment of society because  we're all suffering. ,  "Personally I'm tired of the  breast-beating and the agonizing. Let's collect our senses  around here and get on with the  business of making a living.  We've still got everything we  need going for us."  "Did anybody ever tell you  you talk too much?" said Bert.  "What has all that rigamarole  got to do with the politicians  giving themselves a raise?"  "He talks too much and you  can't listen. You're a great pair.  Bring these sudsheads some  beer and a ginger ale for me."  Jake had come into the bar in  time to hear the last portion of  what was passing for conversation.  "Listen, if you can," Jake  said to Bert. "There's a darn  good reason for the people of  B.C. to be angry right about  now. What they should be  angry about is not that the  politicians are getting a raise  after the government has been  hammering away at the  economic well-being of  everybody and his canary for  the past three years. That's just  a minor matter which reveals  the hypocrisy of the government."  "Who let you in here?" said  Bert.  Jake snorted and paid for the  round. He took a pull of his  ginger ale before continuing.  "What makes me mad is that  nobody fully realizes that much  of the hardship has been created  by the same character who's  .   now preaching about partnership and renewal."  I sighed happily. The feisty  oldtimer was taking the  truculent Bert off my hands  nicely. It was my day-off after  all and I am essentially a  peaceful sort of fellow, for the  most part.

Firsf Dmf( Ch()jce  Peter Trower  Mafyanne's    viewpoint  Consequences of CRTC decision  by Maryanne West  "So much for the democratic  process and all those letters,  ���23,000 from the public and  CKVU gets just what it wants  and we have to pay," someone  said, disgusted by the CRTC's  decision which came down last  week, with much fanfare. I  wasn't very thrilled myself  although it was a foregone conclusion that CKVU would get  VHF 10 there was no reason  why they shouldn't but we had  hoped for greater consideration  for our problems and that other  transmitter sites, even if not as  good for CKVU's purposes,  would be considered.  However, it wasn't a complete loss, we did gain very important time. Imagine what  would have happened without  all those letters and everyone's  individual effort? CKVU's application would have gone  through automatically and by  now that transmitter would be  operation and we'd be behind  the eight ball, with a couple of  years before a microwave  system could be installed. Now  CKVU has to wait until we've  got that system in place.  It did cross my mind to suggest to John Thomas that we  would easily delay the process  for a number of years, but  knowing John would consider  that to be dishonest, I refrained!  What particularly irked me  was the continued emphasis by  everyone that the cost to cable  subscribers will be minimal and  that no consideration seems to  have been given as to whether  those subscribers should be paying in the first place.  It's easy to think that a couple of dollars (I know the  quoted figure is $1.10 but how  much more will have to be added two years down the road  when the bills come in?) is no  great deal if you're in a $40,000  plus, p.a. salary category, but  I'd be happier if these well paid  civil servants were more sensitive to people on fixed pensions, those who are  unemployed or those whose  budgets are already stretched  coping with growing families,  mortgages, etc.  I was also offended by having  Rogers Cable quoted to me as if  they are the criterion by which  all cable companies are judged.  It's like equating the big grocery  chains with the corner store. Of  course it's no big deal for  Rogers - the impairment of their  system is minimal and they've  got so many thousands of  subscribers the extra cost will  hardly be noticeable. But all  cable companies are not created  equal, and for the small  operators in places like Duncan,  Ladysmith, Nanaimo, the Gulf  Islands and the Sunshine Coast  the story will be quite different.  Someone suggested philosophically that it's all part of  the cost of living over here, like  the ferry, you have to expect  things to cost more. That may  be true, but there is still the  question of whether in a market  place where the frequencies  belong to all the people should a  regulatory body allow "A" to  put "B's" legitimate business in  possible jeopardy without due  reparations?  I was wondering whether it is  worth lodging an appeal, when  a call came from one of Victoria's aldermen asking if we  are interested in exploring any  further options open to us. Of  course I said yes.  I'm not optimistic that we  have much chance to make any  changes, but 1 think we should  voice our concerns.  One has to wonder if the  CRTC has seen the possibility  that their actions may prepare  the way for a takeover by one of  the cable big boys of the  number of small cable operators  on the Coast and whether that is  in the public interest. Coast News, February 25,1985  A growing movement towards peace  Editor:  An historical event occurred  last week when Canada participated in two separate testings  of the cruise missile and as  Canadians we should all be proud of our dutiful sense of  NATOrial responsibility: at  least that's the rhetoric spewing'  from Parliament Hill.  In reality what is happening is  that the present Conservative  government * is . bending over  backwards to complete what the  Liberals started. Not content to  have sold out on our control of  natural resources, we ho longer'  have the courage to maintain an  independent foreign policy nor  the wisdom to escape the immorality of the arms race.  My belief that Canada did  not profit from the manufacture of arms was shattered some  years ago. Now however, all  pretense of non-involvement is  lost, for, in allowing the testing  of the cruise missile over Canadian terrain we are direct collaborators with the builders of  the flying crematoriums  threatening all life on this  planet.  The B52 flying the missile  from North Dakota to northern  'Canada oh Tuesday and Friday  of last week did not let loose a  weapon necessary for our pro  tection under the rules of  "deterrence". We have had a  viable nuclear deterrence for  over 20 years when both the  USA and USSR possessed  enough "killpower" to destroy  each other.  Every nuclear weapon  manufactured and deployed  since then has been unnecessary  and served mainly to plant a  feather in some politician's hat,  a medal on some general's  breast or to boost corporate  dividends of a company like  Honeywell, General Electric or  "the~mahy~6thers involved In the"  armament industry.

This ignores the huge  percentage of the welfare  population who, though they  are working, and are being productive, are not considered by  many people to be paying their  way. I speak of those of us who  "are single mothers of small  children. I do not want to be offered a job outside the home.

The gifts of food, the sympathy cards and letters, the  telephone calls and personal  visits have all aided me immensely in my hours of need.  For these I humbly say "Thank  you all for being so kind and  thoughtful".  There is also a basic truth that  has emerged and has come to  my mind following Kay's  ���departure and it is this: one does  not have to set goals to become  ; financially wealthy, or a successful statesman, or a noted  ���scientist, in  order to become  Sharing goals  Editor:  Your ��� article ''Alternate  economic strategy urged" in last  weeks paper offers a confusing  view of the relationship between  the economic/employment  strategy committee's work and  that of the solidarity coalition  and the joint council of unions.

As for myself, I wish to say  that there is one regret that is  constantly nagging away at me  and it is that I was never a person who could comfortably and  openly express my love and  devotion to my lifetime partner,  except perhaps on special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries.

Did you know every 1985 Skoda  has quartz halogen headlamps as  standard equipment?  Like solidarity and the joint  council who endorses job creation and decreases in the level of  unemployment as key priorities,  the EESC must respond to our  broader dual purposes of  employment development and  economic development. Our  work therefore, requires serious  consideration of initiatives put  forward by labour representatives as well as those tendered  by individuals who believe the  first priority should be  economic development, and  even from others who feel any  work in this area is of little consequence.  So, while our working  methods are slightly different,  the EESC and solidarity and the  joint council share the same major goal���local employment  development with a view to the  longer term development of the  Sunshine Coast.

I do not feel that I should  have to be in a possibly oppressive relationship with a man  in order for society to approve  of what I am doing. Fortunately  I do not crave more than the  basics in the way of material  wealth and I find myself comfortable with the welfare rates  as they are. (I realize that  others, due to their circumstances, the expenses they  have, etc. are not comfortable  and 1, too, have been hard up in  the past year, but feel okay  now.)  It is, however, frightening to  contemplate the erosion of the  welfare system that may happen  if people continue to elect right  wing governments. I am also  uncomfortable with the feminist  solution of free universal  daycare and wish that some of  my sisters would realize that this  is not what my children and I  need, and would show support  for women single or not, who  want to raise their children  themselves.

The danger is indeed great,  but with it is the growing  worldwide involvement of individuals to counter that  danger. As Canadians we can  do no less.  Michael Burns  lt*S a Family Outing!

We are learning and we know  that we can't take with us the  mountains, or Gospel Rock, but  we can take many good  memories.  The scenery (except for the  snow) has been beautiful but it  has been the people of Gibsons  who have made our time here;,  everyone from the lifeguards at  the pool to our great neighbours;  who have saved our bacon on  occasion.  There is also a need at this  time to thank our sponsors;  Ralph Jones from the town of  Gibsons; Sam Reid, Gibsons  elementary; Marta McKown,  Elphinstone; George Allen,  Langdale; Vern Wishlove,  Roberts Creek; and all of their  staff. Because a large part of  our day is spent at work it is important that we have had a good  environment to work in; and we  certainly have been granted  that! So again thank you.  Our billeting time in Gibsons  was just one more great  memory. We were welcomed into twelve homes and made to  feel like part of the family.  For the people who attended"  our farewell party, thank you  for that great send off. Special  thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Neilson  and Mrs. and Mrs. Marshall for  attending.  We are now off to Ontario,  where I am sure we will hit the  tail end of winter.-  One nice thing is that we have  two springs.  As for the next group coming, we can only wish them the  best of luck and hope that they  enjoy Gibsons half as much as  we did.

There's a wide choice of  topics and you can pick and  choose the ones you want to see.  Among the subject matters are  footbinding, a famous Canadian artist, women in a resource  town (sounds appropriate),  feminism issues in Vancouver,  and a woman facing a mental  breakdown.  Some of the films are funny  and most are Canadian productions. They're not just for the  "burn the bra" women's libber  by any means.  There's a potluck dinner and  refreshments will be available.

It may just be  sitting there unplayed and  -unloved. Well it does need some  tender loving care and I know  just the person who could give it  that and a good home to boot,  where it would be played  regularly and where it would  give much joy to a lot of people  young and old.  As most of you are aware,  Nikki Weber has moved into  new premises with her music  shop and has lots of instruments  there but no piano.  She now has a little studio  room where her groups such as  the kids of the Mini Mob now  do their practising, but alas,  there is no piano. So, if you  know of one which would be  reasonably priced I would be  glad to here from you, or, better  still, if you are looking for a  good foster home for your old  piano you are in luck as Nikki  would make a great, foster  Mom.  Nikki gives of her time voluntarily to this group of kids, to  the 69'ers group, the GG's, the  Halfmoon Hams, to name but a  few of the people she works  with musically, so a piano is a  bit beyond her financial capacity.  Think about it and give either  Nikki or myself a call if you can  come up with some solution to  this problem. A baby grand  would not be refused either!  These groups, who are coached by Nikki, perform for the  benefit of local projects such as  the new senior's hall, the cancer  society, etc, and at the same  time bring a lot of pleasure and  happiness to the community.  A HAPPY VALENTINE  The Valentine's dance sponsored by the Welcome Beach  Community Association last  week was a most successful and  enjoyable event. Dinner was  provided by donation of menu  items by -all who attended and  Paul Hansen pleased the  dancers with his music selec-  Our local master of the harmonica, Torre Orre provided  some delightful after dinner  entertainment for a good old  sing-along. Throughout the  evening there were two spot  dances, both of which were won  by none other than yours truly.  However, as one box of  chocolates is sufficient for any  diet, the second box was  donated to the partner in crime.  In all it was a good fun event  and we can all look forward to  the next one which will be a St.  Patrick's dance on March 16.  There will be more details on  this as the time approaches and  tickets   become   available.  Tickets will also be available  very soon for the next Halfmoon Hams show which Will be  for two nights only, March 30  and 31. Keep those dates in  mind. Also the Halfmoon Bay  Recreation Association's annual  general meeting this Tuesday at  7:30 p.m. at the Feenstra  residence.  A PIONEER PASSES  On February 16 a grand old  lady slept peacefully away at the  age of 103. Mrs. Louise Bar-  dahl, who was well known in  this area, passed away in  Calgary and was buried beside  her husband at Ocean View in  Vancouver last Wednesday. She  is survived by six daughters and  two sons and several grand and  great-grandchildren. Two  daughters lived on Redrooffs, i  Hazel Ellis and Lilian Birk. All  the family were able to attend  the funeral service including a  granddaughter who flew in  from Norway. Louise was a  much loved mother who will be  . oissed by all who knew her.  By'law  surfaces  The whereabouts of Bylaw  264 became apparent at a Sunshine Coast Regional District  (SCRD) specially convened  board meeting February 21  when a letter received from the  ministry of municipal affairs  was received raising questions  on three issues within the bylaw.  These three items are the  Fiedler Bros. Contracting. Ltd.  site, Jackson Bros. Logging  Ltd. site, and Murray Nurseries  Ltd. site. The ministry expressed reluctance to continue with;'  the by-law until these matters  were resolved.  However, Chairman Jim  Gurney has drafted a response  to the ministry which he hopes  will ensure rapid processing of  the by-law. In the letter he  assures the ministry that the  three properties in question  "will be the subject of by-law  amendments as soon as Bylaw  264 has been adopted. It is the  board's intention to initiate  these amendments at no cost to  the property owners".  mmmmmsm  ty?*W  VS&  sa������ssssss����  Boneless  outside round roast  Quarter - Cut Into Chops  kg  .kg  pork loin  Bulk j*  beef sausage kgu  lb.

B.C.'s Emily Carr College of  Art and Design (ECCAD) has  ���called on local schools, correspondence students and art  centres to submit entries to the  fourth biennial B.C. Young Artists Exhibition (BCYA). Announcing BCYA '85, ECCAD  board chairman,-Keith Mitchell  invited all local artists aged 18  and under to submit work for  adjudication and possible province-wide exhibition through  1986.  "Here is an opportunity for  creative youngsters in every part  of B.C. to receive recognition  and encouragment," Mitchell  said. "In 1985, United Nations  International Youth Year, we  urge art teachers, parents and  family members to have their  young people submit material to  the exhibition as a way of  fostering the creative spirit in  our classrooms," he said.  Drawings, prints, photographs, two-dimensional collages, paintings and other art  media are sought. Up to 150 will  be selected for exhibition across  B.C. and in the Yukon Territory and Washington state.

HARMONY SINGERS  The once a month visit of the  Harmony Singers from Gibsons  Seniors at Shorncliffe took  place, Wednesday, February 20.  Always a delight to hear they  also come full of fun, everyone  has a wonderful time.  Mrs. Peggy Campbell is their  spirited leader; violinist Jack Inglis rendered two lovely solos  "He" and "I Believe"; Steve  White, pianist, accompanied  the singers and continued on  during the tea. Mary Steele and  Jim Munro sang a duet of "Will  You Love Me In September".  It was a sentimental afternoon with the residents joining  in with the old popular songs.  The singers are a combination  of men and women and generally follow the monthly theme; on  their next visit they will offer  Irish tunes.  Performers are appreciated at  Shorncliffe and they couldn't  ask for a more enthusiastic audience. If you wish to share  your talent phone Shorncliffe  arid ask for the activity aid,  Anne Courtney, 885-5126.  WORLD DAY OF PRAYER  the theme for this year's  World Day of Prayer, "Peace  Through Prayer and Action"  will be introduced by Father  Angello DePompa. The host  church for this non denominational service is Holy Family  Church in Sechelt, the event is  on Friday, March 1 at 1 p.m.  Everyone   is   welcome,  refreshments   served   in   the  church hall afterwards.  AREA "B" RATEPAYERS  The Economic Development  Commissioner, Oddvin Vedo  made an excellent presentation  of how mariculture is done in  Norway with a fine film showing their operations. Right from  taking the roe from the female  fish, the fertilizing process, their  development from there into the  pens, up to dispersing them in  the ocean or packing them for  distribution, the whole story is  in pictures.  President Jack Hermiston  along with secretary Carol Kozij  of the Ratepayers' Assocation  were pleased to see so many in  attendance, 60 present, crowded  into the community use room at  West Sechelt school on Tuesday, February 19.  Director Peggy Connor of  Area "B" was asked to speak  on Sunshine Coast Regional  District's current events.  The Advisory Planning Committee or the APC for Area  "B" will comprise of Alternate  Director, Andrew Steele, Chris  Caldwell, Maurice Egan,  Graham Allen, Jim Bayles,  Carol Kozij, Ralph Mahar and  Don McLeod. This group is appointed by the area director and  approved by the SCRD board.  It is a cross section of citizens  whose duties shall be to advise  the board on such matters that  relate to this area.  Planner for the SCRD, Jim  Johnstone, talked on the Area  "B" Settlement Plan and the  technical work needed to complete the plan.  Chairman Jim Gurney of the  SCRD   was   also   on   hand,  answering questions from those  present.  It was very gratifying to see  such a good turnout especially  when it was a busy night, many  meetings on.  Other directors of the  Ratepayers' Association present  were Harry Pinkerton, Alva  Dinn, Gerry Berthelet and Paul  Toynbee.  LET'S TALK SCHOOLS  Talking was done at  Chatelech secondary school on  Tuesday, February 19 and a  brief was taken to the Sechelt  Elementary School on Wednesday, February 20.  There was lots of talking and  six presentations at the Sechelt  Elementary school with 50 present. The independent District  School Review Committee comprised of John Denley, Janice  Edmonds and Brian Beecham  with Denley as their chairman  were there to listen.  Major concerns raised were  the process of the review and  the time allotted to answer so  many complex questions, including levels of funding concerns, special needs students,  post-secondary schooling.  The final forum will be held  Please turn to page 17  Sechelt Seniors  by Robert Foxall  There's one thing we can be  sure of in Canada and that is  that we have a very promising  bunch of people in the seats of  government. We are getting lots  of promises of funding for our  new hall but so far nothing of  what might be called documentary evidence. I could wish that  some of them had the experience we had in the fruit  shipping business.  We could not tell a grower to  put his berries or cherries into a  corner for a while but had to dig  up a destination because the  train or the lake steamer was  due in a very short time, and he  had to get addresses on his  crates. Sometimes we had to do  some diverting before the  destination was reached but we  always gave an order. However,  the Planning Committee is fine  tuning its plans and when the  big day comes will be off and  running.  At our monthly meeting for  February Dave Hayward announced that he had arranged a  trip to Victoria for April 8.  Don't rush for a ticket because  the bus was sold out before the  hall had emptied at the close of  the meeting; the only .thing that  can be done is to give your  name to Dave in case he should  have some cancellations.  Through a comedy of errors I  managed to miss the bus last  Wednesday and so missed the  trip to Seton Villa but some of  my spies tell me that it was a  nice day and that our performers were well appreciated  by our hosts.  All activities at the hall are  going ahead as usual and drawing increasing numbers. That is  why the functions were started  so it could not be said that there  was nothing to do in Sechelt.  Help us to get that new hall  built and we will be able to increase the number of activities  and make you feel still happier  that you retired to the Sunshine  Coast.

Robi and her family moved  to their farm at Kleindale in  1960. Though her young family:  kept her busy, she soon became  involved in aquatic and fitness  activities. She was also part of a  local dance group which provided entertainment for social  events on the Coast, along with  Wendy Simmonds, Diane  Fielding   and  Shirley  Vader.  Robi is following a family  tradition: her mother was a  swimming instructor and coach  in England, and Robi spent her  summers as a teen working with  the Vancouver Sun Free Swim  classes.  Her cheerful smile and encouraging words have helped  many a Harbourite, young and  older, learn to swim or get in  shape. Robi Peters, Pender  Harbour salutes you!  STRING ENSEMBLE  Madeira Park elementary  students had a treat on  February 13 with the Canada  West Strings, directed by Bruce  Dunn. The 11 member ensemble played short selections from  Beethoven, Mozart, Vivaldi and  Greig. Between the music, Mr.  Dunn gave an entertaining and  informative commentary on the  instruments, the composer and  the  style  of music.   Twenty  adults also enjoyed the concert.  Remember that special events  at the schools are often open to  parents, grandparents and  neighbours. Just call the school  office to be sure. What happens  in our schools really does  benefit the entire community.

Coast News, February 25,1985  problem  An application for a taxi  licence, a grant for the Writers'  Forge, the location of the propane tank at the marina and requests for funding for special  1986 projects were all items on  the agenda of the Gibsons  Committee-of-the-Whole  meeting, February 20.  The committee decided to  wait for more information  before writing a letter of support to the Motor Carrier Commission on behalf of an applicant who wishes to establish a  new taxi service in Gibsons.  Alderman Norm Peterson  raised a question about the  number of licences allowed in  the Gibsons area, and asked  that a letter be written to the  Motor Carrier Commission requesting more information. The  applicant has stated that he  wishes to start a new business  because of alleged current long  waits for service, alleged poor  condition of the cars and alleged lack of service for the elderly  The Writers' Forge has asked  council for financial support for  their Festival of the Written  Arts, and the Committee-of-  the-Whole examined the request. Speaking in favour of the  request, Alderman Burnside  said, "This particular community activity has been one of  the most successful and the  most exciting to come along in  years.  "A little literary festival is  becoming recognized on the  calendars of some of the best  known writers in Canada," he  continued.  "A large number of people  from Vancouver attend the  festival, with the numbers rising  each year," said Burnside.  "Although the festival takes  place in Sechelt, the whole area  benefits from the publicity, and  the festival is helping put the  Sunshine Coast on the tourist  map.  "Despite strains and stresses,  a determined movement is being  made for co-operation between  geographical areas," said  Alderman Burnside, "and I feel  Gibsons can contribute to this  worthwhile cause."  The committee, after some  deliberations, decided to grant  $250 to the Forge for their  festival.  The question of the propane  tank at the new marina has  " again come before council, with  the disclosure that a covenant  lies upon the land which was  sold to the town at a cost of  $1,000 and which lies directly in  front of the Beynon property  and adjacent to the road  allowance upon which the propane tanks will be erected.  Mr. G. Beynon's grandmother, Greta Grant, placed the  covenant upon the land, and it  is transferable from owner to  owner. Although the tank will  stand on road allowance, the intent of the covenant appears to  cover that area as well.  The marina has followed correct procedures in its application for the propane tanks; it  first approached council for  permission to sell propane,  ��� among other things, and has  obtained a building permit to  construct the base; the fire mar-  shall has inspected the site and  found that it conforms to his  rules, but the existence of the  covenant was not known at the  time.  Consequently, council has  asked the marina to put a hold  on any installations until the  problem in resolved, since the  land, virtually a gift, came from  one of the most respected of  Gibsons' pioneer families, and  the intent of the covenant  should be respected.  A number of requests have  come before council asking for  funding for 1986 events, including a proposal for a time  capsule, from Melody Mar-  croft, and a request from the  chamber of commerce for a  special fund to be set aside for  the year. Council decided that a  committee was needed to deal  with these requests and to coordinate events .for 1986.  When Mayor Labonte  returns from his vacation he will  appoint a committee, but in the  meantime the council will advise  the chamber of commerce, and  also Ms Marcroft that  allowances have been made in  the 1985 budget for special  events and that all suggested activities will be considered by the  committee when it has been  formed.  s;.

My favourite is a salad that contains as well as lettuce,  cut up bits of green pepper, celery, cucumber,  mushrooms, radishes, green onion, tomatoes, avocado  and sliced green grapes. With pepper added, I wouldn't  care if I added any other salad dressings or not. If I do,  my favourite is a spot of blue cheese dressing.  But this discussion was intended to centre around the  avocado. This fruit, for that is its classification, is  becoming increasingly popular, and with its popularity,  is now quite economical for use in salads, or as an appetizer. Vegetarians use it as a meat replacer for it is  protein rich, and a very good source of Vitamin C.  Avocados, as most people will know, are best for  eating when they yield to light pressure on the rind. A  simple way to test for ripeness is to insert a toothpick in  the fruit at the stem end. If it flows freely in and out of  the fruit, it is ripe, ready to eat. They say you should  never cut an avocado until it is ripe. When ripened they  may be refrigerated.  This brings me to the real purpose of this  article,���how to shop for avocados. Yes, you may test for  ripeness by feel,���but the steady volume of sales in  these days means that you seldom see ripe or over-ripe  avocados on the counter any more. If you love avocados  as I do, and use them regularly, then you would be advised to always have avocados on hand in various stages  of ripeness.  I have frequently overheard the dissappointing comments of those who, having searched through the bin,  could not find one ripe enough to use that day. So do  plan ahead and have one or two on hand for use as needed. Diced, they enrich your salad, and are good for you!  Buy four for $1.00.  Retired  teacher  at large  by George Cooper  Pat Edwards, a former commercial teacher at Elphinstone,  has spent part of her first year  of retirement travelling in Britain.  "I was there for three and  one half months," says Pat,  "and visited Scotland's Isle of  Sky and Loch Ness. Quite  astonished by the array of  paraphernalia at Loch Ness all  set to record any glimpse of the  monster. Certainly had all the  tourists agog."  She went on, "The British  can ease the tourist dollars out  of the traveller's tightly clutched  purse with the greatest of  charm. B.C. could learn  something there."  From a base at a friend's  home 40 minutes out of London  in Bedfordshire, Pat made excursions as she wished.  "I find the family tree a  fascinating hobby, both my  mother's side in England and  my father's in Wales. My  mother, 93 when she died, said  she was going to be the longest  lived of all past members of the  family, but I found that my  great-great grandfather, born in  1788 also lived to 93."  Pat searched church registers,  the census records, and in the  registry of births and marriages  now in St. Catherine's House,  London.  "My mother had kept several  generation's birth and marriage  certificates, and that sparked  my interest in our family  genealogy."  Were to next, Pat?  "1 plan a return trip to Britain this spring. More search."  Kiwanis  Auxiliary  by Rosemary Fay      --i  The annual general meeting  was held on Wednesday,  February 20 at the lounge of the  Home with 18 present as well as  Mr. Hans Grossman and Carol  Bishop.  President Amy Blain chaired  the first part of the meeting.  The minutes of the residents'  own meeting were read and, as  always, much enjoyed. Carol  Bishop, who is the co-ordinator  of the residents' bazaar this  summer, reported on the progress of work being done  towards this. Any scraps of  material, cotton, ribbon, lace,  etc. would be most useful to the  residents in their various projects fo&the bazaar. The date of  June 1, 1985 was decided upon.

Coast News, February 25,1985  Undercover reviews  J  by Betty and Perry Keller  At Christmas, on the ferry to  the Gulf Islands, we sat near a  lady who reminded us of the  poet Dorothy Livesay���but this  lady was much more subdued,  even remote.  We were pre-occupied with  family gossip and writing problems, and it wasn't until the  lady got off the ferry at Galiano  that we relized that she was indeed Livesay���but a very different Livesay to the one who  had starred at the first Festival  of the Written Arts in Sechelt in  '83.  This   week   we   opened  Livesay's brand new book Feeling the Worlds, published by  Fiddlehead Poetry Books and  Gooselane Editions of New  Brunswick to celebrate her  seventy-fifth year, and we are  delighted to report that this  chameleon of a. lady is younger  than ever before and vitally involved with this world! Who  else but Livesay could watch a  Monty Python show featuring  five old ladies���"transgener-  ations"���who take on a motorcycle gang and vanquish them,  then write:  CheersJto be over sixty/and  running the show/with  everybody     scuttling/for  CELEBRATE  International Women's Day  Film & Video Festival  New views of women, for women, by women.

The same delight in "reversals" is apparent in Fable: The  Bare   Necessities   where   she  leaves her luggage behind on a.  trip to Europe and arrives in  Sofia with only a hatbox full of  shoes and two rolls of toilet  paper. Her feminist stance is  still wittily evident in  Who's  Holier Than Thou? where she is  rejected by the fraternal orders  of Elks, Lions and Moose-  even though she claims to love  animals!  Livesay's attitude to her own  death is consistent with her  positive approach to living. In  Euthanasia she writes:  . Pray pray/for all of us/that  our leap into the chasm/may be  agile and willing/or at least that  we know/our time of going  And although she tells us in  Epitaph:  J am all worn now/honed to  the bone/by centuries  shifted/and smoothed into  stone/Tread soft on my  moss/step easy on my cushion  of grass/for beneath/is time's  granite/the warranty ofdeath,/  the real and eternal Livesay can  still be found lines from Inter  Rim:  Today/I am tomorrow/and  yesterday���/that song  sparrow's lilt/on the old fence  post���/Today/I am song itself.  Feeling the Worlds by  Dorothy Livesay, Fiddlehead  Poetry Books and Gooselane  Editions Ltd., Fredericton.  Suncoast  marks 5 th  On February 13, 1980, five  coast residents sat down and  held the first meeting of what  has become the Suncoast  Players Dramatic Society.  Almost one year later, their first  season opened with Arsenic and  Old Lace, directed by Dana  Still, performed in the  Chatelech high school gym.  Since that first play the players  have produced 14 "major productions, six studio nights, two  children's festivals and arrange  ed ' and promoted numerous  workshops, courses on theatre,  and the Theatresports events.  With their annual general  meeting just around the corner,  the current executive is preparing to present their plans and  recommendations to the group  that will take over the reins. To  help celebrate their fifth year,  the players have printed colourful t-shirts, are printing a  seasons calendar featuring  photos of past productions, and  are publishing a pictorial history  of the past five years.  On the production side of  things, this year will be as busy  as ever. Final arrangements are  being made with Capilano College English department to run  concurrently a History of  Drama course, (university  transfer credit) and a production of Theatre Through the  Ages, where Coast audiences  will be treated to the changes in  the various styles of theatre  enacted around the central  theme.  In the more immediate  future, the players are starting  work on their two Theatre B.C.  Drama Festival entries to be  performed in Vancouver- in  mid-April. The two festival entries are both Canadian plays.  Theresa's Creed by well known  east coast playwright Michael  Cook, will be directed by Janet  Dolman, and feature actor San-  die Decker. The second entry  will be a new script by local  playwright Gordon Wilson entitled Blue Cheeze and Jazz.  This play has not yet been cast.  Auditions will be held at the  Capilano College Learning Centre, in Sechelt at 7 p.m.,  February 28. The players will  cast seven actors; parts are open  for two women ages late fifties  to mid-sixties, one woman age  mid to late thirties, one teenage  girl age 15 to 17, one man age  early sixties, one man age early  thirties, and one man age mid  twenties.

My curiosity took me  to Bullwinkle Glass Studio  where Harry Smith proudly  took me through the steps of  making his unique glass forms.  He starts with a base of  crushed glass and silicates that  has been heated in a kiln to a  molten state, then he dips his  glass blowing tube and extracts  the "clear". With a blob of this  clear glass on the end of the  tube, the blower proceeds to the  "glory hole" or furnace, and  there he continues to heat and  rotate the blob. Then resting the  blob in a ladle-like depression in  a wooden block, and using the  natural force of gravity, he continues to rotate the blob until it  forms a sphere.  With the precision of a majorette, he twirls the tube to  elongate this sphere. Then, still  rotating it, he blows through the  tube to bell out the shape. This  whole process takes many trips  back to the glory hole to keep  the glass at a plastic-like consistency. Finally, he pulls at the  shape with tweezers and snips at  it with scissors to create this  designs and adds different colours of glass to the shape.  When the glass blob has  become the form that the artist  had in mind, he takes it to the  "fuming" oven where it is  sprayed with lustre to create the  irridescent colours. Next it goes  to an "annealing oven" where it  is cooled slowly; and when it  emerges, the bottom is finished  by grinding and polishing.  Voila���the Art Glass!  Let your curiosity lead you to  Bullwinkle's studio. There's  much more to- see���slumped  glass, spun glass���a real pot  pourri!  Arts Festival  by Josephine Hammond  The Sunshine Coast Arts  Festival is approaching fast.  There is a change of adjudicator  for the instrumental and vocal  events, and David Meek will be  replacing Bruce Dunn.

Coast News, February 25,1985  -7-7 r;,^-���;itfMHBHB��**Z' ^  Qoverdale Curlers in the "off planet" garb compete against White Rock in the second end of a match held  Friday evening during the Sunshine Coast Bonspeil. -Nevuk owway pmo  Rugby report  Gibsons wins a rough one  Freerrjan Smith of the Gibsons Third Division rugby team  excelled throughout a brutal  21-4 win over North Van  Capilanos. He seems to be picking up a habit of stealing possession of the rugby ball and cruising for 40 and 50 yard tries.  Displaying this ability has  given him four tries in his last  two games, helping Gibsons to a  2 + 0- record for the second  half.  Head coach John Sutherland  commented on the game against  the Caps; "We were pushed,  shoved and kicked around in  the first half by a very scrappy  side but our set scrums were our  own, and we capitalized on second phase rugby. ���  "The referee apparently had  trouble keeping up with the  play, consequently missing a lot  of extended elbows and heavy  high hits. Gibsons held cool  throughout and took advantage  whenever it arrived."  Caps' only score came from  an aggressive winger who surprised Gibsons by bowling his  way through three blue shirts  for the try. Late in the second  half play, 20 yards off the Caps'  goal line, prop forward, Rick  Lawson, took a Cap penalty off  the mark, drove to the 10 yard  line, set the ruck with his on-  rushing scrummers, and an alert  fullback, Chris Tynan, crossed  with free-wheeling Freeman for  the final.  Gibsons Fourth Division won  by default on Saturday against  an absent Vancouver Rowers.  That's a long way to go for a  disappointment.  Both clubs will be in action  next weekend. The thirds are  off to town to play the Red  Lions at Braemar and the four'"*  ths will play the Mammoth  Meralomas' B side, with the  game time at 11:30 a.m. at  Elphinstone. All football  players are from the club's summer team.  Minor hockey news  The minor hockey bingo was  a huge success. Over $2000 in  prizes was given out.

Paul Wright, George Fallis  and Joel Mackown were the top  shooters' in the tournament.  Joel Mackown won the Most  Valuable Player Tropy and Paul  Wright First Allstar.  Last week, February 8,  Chatelech held their tournament and Elphie did well. They  lost to Howe Sound, but came  back to defeat Richmond and  Cariboo Hill to take third place  in the tourney.  Darryl Gant and Lome Carroll played strongly for the  Cougars and Paul Wright  received an Allstar.  On Wednesday February 13,  the Cougars travelled to  Chatelech where they crushed  the Eagles with an 82-60 win.  Paul Wright was the top shooter  with 22 points; Joel Mackown  with 20 points; George Fallis, 16  points; Darryl Gant, 12 points;  Glen Fisher, 8 points and Lome  Carrol with four points accounted for the Cougars' triumphant finish.

Sechelt Sea Cadets conducted a car wash last week to raise funds for  their organization. -ntr9tamm*ypkxo  of CORE  course soar  The Gibsons Wildlife Club  and the Sechelt Peninsula Rod  & Gun Club have drawn up  plans for the Conservation and  Outdoor Recreation Education  (CORE) course, the course that  must be taken prior to obtaining  a first hunting licence in B.C.  after age 14.  The government no longer  sponsors the program directly  but has placed it in the hands of  the Open Learning Institute and  the B.C. Federation of Shooting  Sports. The former offers a correspondence course to meet the  requirements for the theoretical  part of the course. Since the  clubs feel that it is difficult,  especially for younger students,  to complete correspondence  courses and that the learning  process lacks the personal input  of qualified instructors, they are  prepared to offer the course as  in the past.  This has caused a doubling of  the cost to the student. The fee  this year, with both clubs, will  be $60 for 10 lessons, the text,  instructional material, visual  aids and the Open Learning Institute examination fees - a written exam which covers the  topics: Mammals and Birds of  B.C., Hunting Regulations and  Outdoor Ethics, Firearms  Handling and Safety, Outdoor  Survival and Emergency First  Aid: and a second exam by a  certified examiner of the B.C.  Federation of Shooting Sports,  which tests the practical aspects  of shooting and safe gun handling.  The address of the Open  Learning Institute is Box 94000,  Richmond, B.C. V6Y 2A2. The  charges to the student wishing  to qualify by this route are:  course $23, examination fees of  $12 and $5, text $6 and the cost  of one or two trips to the  nearest examination centre in  Vancouver. There appears to be  no cheap way of taking the  course and the clubs are as concerned as you will be that there  has been such an increase in  cost.  Both clubs are planning to  start the courses the week of  March 11 this year and will hold  two sessions a week of about  two and one half hours each  night from 7 p.m. The time  devoted to the gun handling  portion will be in addition to  these hours.  As in the past the clubs will  require that students not miss  more than two sessions and the  gun handling portion is mandatory to all. Since the Pender  Harbour Wildlife Club does not  intend to offer the course this  year, potential students from  that area should register with  either the Sechelt or Gibsons  club.  Since the cost is greater to the  clubs this year, they are requiring a pre-registration with a $20  deposit sent to either Mr.  George Ruggles, R.R. #4, Reid  Road, Gibsons, B.C. VON 1V0  or Mrs. B. Rankin, R.R. #1,  Snodgrass Road, Sechelt, B.C.  VON 3A0 prior to March 11.  The rest of the fee will be  payable at the first session.

A' discussion of Sechelt's  proposed new street numbering  system and a presentation of  the Sechelt Chamber of Commerce's initiatives and objectives for 1985 highlighted  Sechelt council's regular Wednesday meeting.  Mayor Kolibas informed  council that although the online house numbering system  prepared by Doug Roy of  Roberts Creek seems entirely  acceptable for Sechelt's needs,  heated discussion at the Valentine's Day SCRD board meeting  centred around the possible implementation of an alternate  street numbering system  prepared by Tom Becker of  Underwood and McLellan.    .  Council has agreed not to go  ahead with the Roy system until  the SCRD has reached a decision as to what system is  preferable. "We cannot really  put in a numbering system for  the village that doesn't tie in  with areas outside the village  limits," said Mayor Kolibas.  Victor Walters representing  the Sechelt Chamber of Commerce presented a list of the  projects that the chamber would  be endorsing during the coming  year. The chamber is continuing  in its efforts to gain a lodge permit and a 10-year lease on two  or three acres of land adjacent  to Tannis Lake. The chamber  hopes to build a 30 by 60 foot  log Timber Day's Lodge for  visitors to the region who wish  to familiarize themselves with  the area.  "The chamber supports any  initiative toward the building of  a new wharf in Trail Bay,"  Walters said.  "We will do everything we  can to bring about the completion of this project."  Alderman Short mentioned  that the Sunshine Coast Tourist  Association had some tentative  plans for a new wharf in the  bay. "So we've put the wharf  on the back burner," he told  Walters.  "Maybe the Tourist Association will come up with millions  of dollars for the project...who  knows?" said Short.  Mr. Walters also mentioned  the possibility of the village obtaining logging rights to Crown  land, and over a long period of  time generating revenue by way  of a silviculture program of its  own. Mission, B.C. and North  Cowichan, B.C. already have  municipal silviculture programs  in operation, Mr. Walters told  the Coast News.  "The mayor of North  Cowichan was on the Jack  Webster show recently describing how the municipality was  putting to work people collecting unemployment benefits and  at the same time growing  saleable timber," said Walters.  "The chamber wishes to  work more closely with  council." said Walters.  "We  will attempt to have a chamber  representative at the regular  council meetings," he concluded.  As part of the regular correspondence, two letters were  received pleading for assistance.  The village clerk of Maple  Ridge asked the village to take  part in a simultaneous  'dimming-out' ploy protesting  B.C. Hydro rate increases and  council also received a letter  protesting government procedures regarding allocation of  unemployment insurance  benefits.  "We as a council cannot  presume to speak for the individual," said Alderman  Short. "Let the individual take  up a pen and write to the people  concerned," he added. "We get  far too many of these letters."  bathroom ;'o^n'#i'":$alfct'  'n mi nii'i  >  Annual Sale -30% OFF  ��� Z v ^  Feb.-Mafch 1985  SUNSHINE KITCHEJIS   *   G!b*on��   -886-9411  -, Shovwoorfl��Hw)f 10* * f*r��tt, f*9*d  Action Centre  helping more  The Finest made  CUSTOM DRAPES &  WINDOW COVERINGS  available.

Ken Devries & Son  Floorcovering Ltd.  886-7112  Alderman Ron Neilson  reported to the Gibsons council  meeting, February 19, that the  Unemployment Action Centre  in Gibsons has seen "a tremendous increase in the number of  people coming through the office-. There are lots of personal  problems too," he said. In the  month of December, 1984, 153  people went through the UAC,  but in January 1985,295 people  were seen, an increase of 48 per  cent.

Set up in April 1983, the service helps residents deal with  government agencies concerning difficulties due to layoffs  and long term unemployment.  Responding to rising levels of  unemployment, the centre  developed a variety of support  services. Volunteers provide  counselling for people having  problems with unemployment  insurance, workers' compensation claims, and rights and  responsibilities under the  ministry of human resources.  Assistance in dealing with banks  and debt counselling, as well as  referral to other agencies, a  clothing  exchange  and  book  drop   are   other   services  available.  Advocates assist people with  unemployment insurance and  ministry of human resources appeal procedures. Researching  precedents, working with  related government acts and  regulations and representatives  of various government bodies  are all part of the advocate's  job. A three day training course  starts February 25 in Vancouver  for interested volunteers. The  centre is open from Monday to  Friday between 10 a.m. and 4  p.m. and advocates are needed  to work one day a week.  Those interested in this or any  other volunteer opportunity,  should contact the Volunteer  Action Centre at 885-5881.  tial employment in the community, reported Alderman  Neilson, who is Gibsons  representative to the Economic  Development Commission.  In other business, Gibsons  council again examined the recent application for an extension of time on Bylaw 350-7  made by Jon McRae and John  Kavanagh. According to the  historic review of the application it is 18 months since the  restrictive covenant was first requested by the council as a pre:  ^requisite to granting the by-law,  which would change zoning of  the Ritz Motel property.  The by-law is the first to be  examined under the new council  policy on 'lingering' by-laws.  "We have to accept the  recommendations of staff in  this matter," said Alderman  John Burnside. "The application is dormant; this is exactly  the type of situation the by-law  review policy is intended to deal  with." An extension of time  was denied by the council.

"The Sunshine Coast  Aquaculture Association is a  trade association and a lobby  group dedicated to the overall  advancement of aquaculture on  the Sunshine Coast," said Syd .  Heal, the association's president.  "We cannot endorse any individual product and we are not  a co-operative to run any sort of  co-operative business."  One member of the associa  tion mentioned that similar  organizations in other parts of  the world were acting in a cooperative fashion to market  their fish products, and the  coast association could learn  from these established methods.  Heal suggested that the association could elect a group of accepted association members  who could act in this capacity.  The association is still not clear  as to whether aquafarmers are  to be classified as farmers or  fishermen, members are  therefore not sure about the  relevant tax benefits extant at  both the provincial and federal  levels.  Discussion centred particularly around the classification of  building materials as they relate  to aquaculture, and how the  Interested in Japan?  Capilano College and its  Japanese sister college, Aichi  Gakusen, have organized a  three week educational tour of  Japan, centred in that country's  fourth largest city, Nagoya City.  This4 study and travel tour will  include instruction in Japanese  conversation and writing, and  lectures in Japanese history,  education, and culture. Field  trips will include a visit to the  ceramics museum in Seto City,  a three day visit to the city of  Kyoto, and a tour of the automobile company plant in  Toyota City.  Participants will stay in a  hotel in Nagoya City, and will  have an opportunity to visit the  attractions   there,   including  theatres, fine shops, restaurants, historic sites, galleries,  and museums. Interested participants could also arrange with  the travel company to visit the  site of Expo '85 at Tsukuba,  after the conclusion of their  stay.  For the past two summers  Capilano College has been host  to groups of students from  Aichi Gakusen College, and  they in turn have accommodated several longer-term exchange students from Cap.  The cost of the trip, including  airfare, tuition, field trips, and  accommodation, will be $2530,  and the dates are May 12 to  June 1.

Fisheries agreement  is 'first of many'  Tegid Jones, Director of Information Services for the  Ministry of the Environment  told the Coast News that the recent federal/provincial fisheries  agreement signed last Wednesday by federal fisheries minister  John Fraser is an 'umbrella  agreement' clearing the way for  future agreements more specific  in content.  "These future agreements  will contain definite commitments of dollars, people and  resources," said Jones. These  agreements will also take into  account all aspects of the fledgling aquaculture industry including habitat protection.  "One of the first things to be  addressed will be the problem of  federal salt water jurisdiction  versus provincial fresh water  jurisdiction in the fishing industry, but there is a good feeling at both the provincial and  federal levels," said Jones.  "Fish farming and salmon  enhancement have a very high  profile right now and it looks  like problems of jurisdiction  will be hashed out before other  specifics can be approached."  fish farmer can claim specific  tax exemptions on expenditures  of this nature. Clarke Hamilton  of Scantech Resources Ltd. has  volunteered, with the aid of the  association, to compile some  sort of definite inventory of  materials used in fish farming in  order to assist the individual  fish farmer in his bid for  materals tax exemption.  Hans Behrisch and Clarke  Hamilton managed recently to  interview the federal fisheries  minister Mr. John Fraser. Mr.  Behrisch spoke of the conversation indicating at a recent  aquaculture meeting, that theirs  was a personal bid for action  and they were not acting on  behalf of the aquaculture  association.  Behrisch and Hamilton mentioned to the minister that overtures to institutions such as the  Federal Farm Credit Bureau  and the Federal Business  Development Bank for low interest or guaranteed loans for  fish farmers had been met with  a   less   than   satisfactory  Rumblings of a Rover  Piety, murder, and sea-monsters  by Dee Cee  I must concede the fact that  most of my adult life was spent  in the company of many  members of the human race  who, although not totally irreligious, were on the other  hand not exactly noted for their  piety. I am referring to the  hobos, lumberjacks, miners and  sailors I associated with in my  early years in Canada.  Perhaps because of this it has  been my sad experience that at  77 years of age I have only met  what I would term three really  true Christians in all my life;  one was my mother, the second  my friend of many years,  Mogens the Dane and the third  was Captain Craig of the S.S.  Lake Sicamous.  The next evening, following  my dunking in Torreviega harbour, I was summoned to Captain Craig's cabin up on the  bridge and fully expected to  receive not only a dressing down  for disobeying his order for me  to remain on the ship but that,  in addition, I would be  "logged" several days' pay.  I was wrong. . Instead of  rebuking me he was courtesy  itself. After inviting me to be  seated he, in the "most tactful  manner possible, tried to reason  with me and point out the error  of my ways. Granted he made  many references to the Bible but  he seemed genuinely concerned  for my welfare.  Although I cannot remember  all he said, I do recall that while  he complimented me on my  ability as a cook he added that I  had reinforced his belief in  Satan as it was only too obvious  that I was possessed by a demon  and, on a more cheerful note,  he assured me that the only way  I could rid myself of him (or  her?) was by assiduous prayer.  Later on as the voyage progressed, the Captain and I had  several sessions of a similar  nature and there was no doubting his sincerity of purpose in  trying to help me, although I  cannot say he was completely  successful, I have thought of  him many times and belatedly  wish to thank him for his  tolerance and kindness.  With our cargo of salt loaded  and the hatches battened down  we left Spain and were soon  hove to at Port Said. There was  no shore leave for anyone as the  Canal was clear and, after a  short preliminary inspection by  Customs' officials, we were on  our way south through the Red  Sea. Next stop Aden. This  phase of the voyage certainly  brought back memories to me  of when at 17 years of age I  made by first trip to sea as a  saloon boy on the S.S. Norman  Castle. How swiftly almost 30  years had gone by!  At Aden a most peculiar  thing happened. We lost two of  our deck crew. I cannot  remember their names but one  was an AB and the other an OS.  They had gone ashore the  previous night and come morning when we were ready to sail  they still hadn't returned. Not  that it was unusual to have men  missing at sailing time, but why  two experienced sailors would  want to jump ship in such a  bleak and arid outpost of the  British Empire had everyone  mystified.  Our ship was delayed for 24  hours while a thorough search  was made by the authorities but  no clues were found to account  for their disappearance and we  sailed without them. As far as I  know they never were found  and it was believed that they  were murdered by the Arabs  and their bodies disposed of.  There was another inexplicable incident that occurred  when we were midway in the  Arabian Sea on our way to Colombo, Ceylon. On a sultry  afternoon with the sea like glass  I was having my usual siesta up  on the boat deck when I heard  some of the crew shouting  below. They were pointing at  something that seemed to be  creating a tremendous disturbance in the sea in the general  direction we were heading but  off to the port side. Whoever  was up on the bridge must have  given orders to change course a  point or two and to slow down  the engines as we came nearer to  whatever was causing this  gigantic commotion.  On enquiring later, I was told  by the officer on watch at the  time that, with the aid of  binoculars, what was at first  thought to be a waterspout  turned out to be two titans of  the deep engaged in a life and  death struggle for survival.  They had sunk out of sight by  the time we got there but the sea  was stained red with their blood  for two or three hundred yards  before we reached the spot.  What they were was never  ascertained. It was conjectured  that they might have been a colossal squid battling with a  sperm-whale as sometimes happens, but there was no actual  proof of that either, so it has to  be written off as one of the  many mysteries of the inscrutable sea.  A week or so's sailing and we  dropped anchor off Colombo,  Ceylon. It was my first visit to  this beautiful island but I will  tell you all about it in a later instalment.  response. Clarke Hamilton later  told the Coast News that these  institutions were leery about offering this type of assistance to  commercial enterprises larger  than the small family venture.  "Fish farmers want to protect  the potentially more valuable  brood stock for the time it takes  them to mature instead.- of selling them off to maintain their  businesses," said Hamilton.  "A fish's value in terms of its  saleable eggs can be two or three  times its value as a food product  even if the fish provides a low  egg yield and there is a high  mortality rate," he added.  Hamilton explained that all the  farmer requires is enough  capital to see these fish through  to the stage where they can provide a much higher return on initial investment.  Oddvin Vedo, the Economic  Development Commissioner,  informed the gathering that  there will be direct provincial initiatives as regards aid to the  aquaculture industry announced in March.

They could be  prevented through proper use of  approved infant and child  carseats.  The new Motor Vehicle  regulations require that  youngsters be properly secured  when riding in a motor vehicle.  Children weighing less than  nine kilograms must ride in an  approved, portable, rear-facing  infant carrier properly attached  to the vehicle's seatbelt system.  Youngsters weighing between  nine kilograms and 18  kilograms have to be properly  secured in an approved child  seat. These cost up to $100, can  be used for two to three years,  and are not practical to rent.  When toddlers ride in someone else's vehicle, the operator  will be responsible for ensuring  that the child wears either a  seatbelt across the lap or  another approved type of child  restraint.  Children weighing more than  18 kilograms will be covered by  existing seatbelt regulations.  Drivers failing to comply with  the new regulations face fines of  up to $100.  "Once parents get into the  habit of protecting their babies  with the infant seats they won't  dream of driving without larger  seats as the child grows," says  local public health nurse Dianne  Read.  "A loaner program saves  parents money and educates  them about safety."  Infant carseats can be  ordered by phoning 885-5881.

Native people have lived all  their lives like that.  "The handouts are rightfully  ours, as payment for the ocean,  the forests, the land, but it  should have been done in a better fashion."  Craigan would like to see  rehabilitation programs  established for the middle-aged  and the elderly although it is a  tradition of the Band to take  care of the elders. He would  also like to see younger people  trained as counsellors in order  to set an example for the rest of  the band members.  For the children Craigan envisions an exchange program  where young people from the  SIB could go on student exchanges with children from  other bands who live different  ways of life, such as in the far  north, or in Quebec, for example. He himself has just spent 18  months at Kyuquot on the  perspective on what I was doing  before I left here, and on what I  hope to accomplish now that  I'm back. We can benefit from  seeing how other bands live."  Employment is a priority;  Craigan would like to see more  women in the workforce, and to  give the younger men more  north west coast of Vancouver  Island.  "That gave me a whole new  work. The Band has several  mega projects on the back  burner which will provide work  after self-government, but  Craigan would also like to see  more counselling and guidance  in economic development, including self-employment.  "People have that  capability," he said, "and once  some of the younger members  are aware of that they'll encourage others. It's the same  with self-government, piece by  piece we'll get it.  "All the decisions have been  made for Indians," he continued, "it's hard enough to  make decisions anyway, now we  want to make our own."  Joe seeks Indian support  Continued from page 1  Joe sees self-government as a  major priority.  "Since 1969 there have been  white paper proposals, parallel  legislation, companion legislation, all approaches to self-  government. There's been a lot  of time and effort in the past.  Once we have legal entity status  the Band can contract with  anyone, provincial or federal.  "We have a lot of natural  resources and can upgrade the  economy and give our Band  members a better way of live."  Joe also sees the culture of  the Sechelt people as an important resource. "We can't lose  the concept of our heritage  because of the pace our Band is  progressing at in a non-Indian  world system. We must maintain our culture. But it's a problem even in general society.  We don't seem to have the time  nowadays to get back into proper perspective with our culture.  This is something we must do."  There are several young people who have been nominated  for council, and Joe sees this as  an important development. "It  pleased me a lot to see the  young interested in the government and business of the  Band," he said. "Our children  entered the public school system  in the late 1950's. It was a  change from the residence  school to public school and it  was a shock to parents and  students. It is only now that I  see the trend where the Band as  a whole is settling into the  public school system as our own  system. Now young people are  taking part in the administration."  Housing is another concern,  said Joe. "Our housing authority was established in 1972 and  it's been very beneficial but it  could be better. I wouldn't want  to see any of our members have  any   difficulty   in   getting  established in the reserve with a  home."  Economic development is  also a priority. "If our financial  status was to have surplus  dollars I see a lot of approaches  to co-operative functions within  our membership, such as fish  farms, fish processing,  vegetable farms. After self-  government we will be able to  use our homes as collateral.  Now it is hard to get capital for  projects because we are not a  legal entity. We need the approval of the Minister of Indian  Affairs to do anything."  In closing Joe said, "I'd like  to have the self-government  concept applied to the Sechelt  Band with protection the Indian  Act now provides for status Indians across the country on the  taxation question. When we  leave a more equal economy,  that's when we will start paying  taxes. We have a long way to  go."

Schools talk  Roxanne Wiseman of Gibsons lost an arm to cancer last  year, but her difficulties have  not dimmed her cheerful spirit.  Gibsons Guide Readers, watching her efforts at recovery,  began the process of applying  for a special Guiding award to  recognize Roxanne's determination.  On Thursday, February 14,  Roxanne received the Badge of  Fortitude from the Girl Guides  of Canada-Guides du Canada.  At a ceremony in Children's  Hospital, provincial commissioner Delores Racine, Lions  area commissioner Pat Drugge,  and Roxanne's own district  commissioner Anna Girard  made the presentation to this  very brave young lady.  The Fortitude Award is made  to young persons who have  shown "great courage and endurance under suffering", and  must be approved by the National Executive Committee of  the  Girl Guides of Canada.  When Roxanne is able to come  back home again, a public  ceremony will be held.  Congratulations, Roxanne,  and the best wishes of everyone  in Guiding and in your community for a continued  recovery.

Merle Bottaro from the Sunshine Coast Teachers' Association (SCTA) expressed her concerns over the loss of local  autonomy, which she sees  leading to centralization of  education. "Equality of education doesn't mean identical  education for all," she said.  "We need democratic decision  making to foster creative and  critical thinking." She sees local  autonomy and a wider participation in decision making as  increasing the options available.  "We need an education that  is appropriate, and it is better to  have locals decide on that. Let  the province set broad  guidelines, but let us make the  day to day decisions."  The Chatelech Parents' Auxiliary was represented by Dale  Burns who voiced a concern  that was to arise again and  again throughout the evening,  that of the shortness of time  available. The auxiliary's brief  urged the government to reconsider their position and give  more time to properly examine  information.  Sechelt Elementary Parents'  Auxiliary, represented by Joan  Cowderoy, expressed a similar  concern. Their brief asked that  more time be allowed for  discussion; the short amount of  time available does not allow  for informed input or extended  debate on a community level.  The brief also recommended  that the Sunshine Coast Hearing Committee should make all  submissions public, and that an  independent commission be set  up for full and public debate.  Speaking as an individual,  Ms Cowderoy expressed the  same concern over the lack of  time.  In other presentations, Cathy  McKibbin expressed the fear  that parents here on the Sunshine Coast will be unable to  send their children on to university, since the provincial government is not spending federal  post-secondary funds on post-  secondary education, but is putting the federal grants into  general revenue.  Jamie Stephen, speaking as a  parent, contemplated the  weighty responsibility of participating in the process, and of  the intense pressures of time.  However, he pointed out, that  unless the opportunity to speak  is seized, the government may  well retort, "Where were you  when we asked for your opinion?".  Stephen expressed concerns  about the erosion of the nuclear  family, and urged that more  vigorous instruction be given in  schools on the virtues of family  life. "Too often we see the community abdicate its responsibli-  ty," he said. "Teachers now are  surrogate moms, dads, coaches,  friends, advisers, and  sometimes even providers."  Gertie Pierre spoke as education director of the Sechelt Indian Band, and stressed the importance of native studies programs, which are helping the  native children develop pride  and to have more interest in  their other subjects.  "I hope that cutbacks won't  take away these programs from  our children," she said, "it is  important that native kids learn-  about who they are."  Dave Hartman spoke on  behalf of the children in our  community with learning  disabilities. "Every child is entitled to an education for  them," he said. "There has to  be an alternative program (for  children unable to learn in the  conventional classroom).  "Without learning assistance,  where do these kids go?" Hart-  man asked. "We have to try to  keep these programs alive.  There's nothing in the booklet  that addresses these problems.  We'll end up with a lot more  crime and juvenile delinquency.  Kids will end up in jail because  they won't have the opportunity  to learn." He went on to quote  statistics from youth detention  centres where up to 75 per cent  of the inmates suffer from some  type of learning disability.  Richard Bolivar, of the  SCTA, is also chairman of the  Committee Against Racism and  spoke in that capacity at the  meeting. One of his first points  was that on the provincial committee there are only white men,  which belies the diversity of the  population of the country, and  the fact that half the population  is female.  Art Shaw of Sechelt also addressed the meeting, stating his  views that the re-emergence of  motherhood may provide  answers to the problems ahead.  He sees the community as the  school, and feels that school  professionals should be "de-  schooled" and re-integrated into the community. He would  see administration cut by 90 per  cent, and a heightened  awareness of the community  towards its children.  The next "Let's Talk About  Schools" forum will be on  Wednesday, February 27 at  Elphinstone secondary at 7 p.m.  Job hotline set  With spring just around the  corner, there are a number of  clean up and fix-it jobs that  need doing around your home  or business. Because of the  overwhelming number of  unemployed in the area, there is  an abundance of skilled labour  available.  As a result the Unemployment Action Centre has initiated a casual job hot line, to  help co-ordinate the available  jobs with the required skills.  The skills available vary from  housekeeping and child care to  carpentry, firewood cutting,  painting, landscaping etc.  The unemployed need your  support, so please call us at  886-2425 and let us know what  you need done.
