Array LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings :>���  VICTORIA, B.C.  V8V 1X4  85.4  Funds seen crucial  Work continues on Gibsons downtown revitilization. This crew is providing infill behind stairs to  Smitty's Marina. -Nev.neconwa* photo  Chief gets second term  Dixon re-elected  "The power of the "X", collectively, is very gratifying,"  said Stan Dixon, who was  returned for a second term as  Chief of the Sechelt Indian  Band (SIB) at the March 2 and 3  elections. He received 109 votes,  with Calvin Craigan running second with 85.  "This mandate is for me to  represent the Band," continued  Dixon in a conversation with  the Coast News. "It gives me  . the incentive to do an even better job."  He sees part of the job as persuading the membership that  "You are what you ; make  yourself," and helping to  develop an attitude; of self  respect and self reliance in  preparation for the in-  deoendence of self-government.  . Councillors elected were:  Lloyd Jeffries, 128; Ben Pierre,,  120; CM. Joe, 77 and Warren  Paul, 70.  On Tuesday, March 5, Dr.  Owen Anderson, Regional  Director-General, B.C., of  Constitutional Affairs was in  Sechelt where he met with Dixon, councillors Lloyd Jeffries  and Mike CM. Joe; advisor,  Gordon Anderson; councillor-  elect, Warren Paul and Band  lawyer, Graham Allen.  Following the meeting Dr.  Anderson was in touch with Ottawa and reported that minister  of Indian Affairs, David Crom-  bie has developed a plan of attack for dealing with the legislation. He is first preparing for  the First Ministers' Conference  CHIEF STAN DIXON  and will then tackle the legislation.  Light was also cast on the  reasons for the delay in getting  the SIB legislation package out  of the department of justice.  According to Anderson, staff  at the justice department has  been instructed to "drop  everything" and concentrate on  the government's current battle  to do away with the Senate.  However, now that Dr.  Audrey Doerr, director of Constitutional Affairs, has been appointed head of the federal  team to examine the package it  is-hdped that; the matter vyill  move along at a-brisker.pace.  According to Band lawyer,  Graham Allen, Dr. Doerr has  the expertise to prepare Cabinet  documents and to deal with the  process that has to go parallel  with finalization of the Act.  Bruce Rawson, deputy minister of Indian Affairs, will be in  Vancouver on Friday, March 15  to meet with members of the  review team and also SIB officials, including Chief Dixon.  "We are still very  optimistic," said Dixon. "We  have faith in our federal  representatives."  Property owners complain  Seawalk hits snag  The Gibsons seawalk has hit  a snag, according to clerk-  treasurer Lorraine Goddard's  report from the March 5, Gibsons council meeting. Four property owners along the proposed seawalk have raised complaints about the construction,  and a meeting will be arranged  between Gibsons staff and the  complainants and/or. their  lawyer, Wayne Rowe, to try to  find a solution.  The complainants, Mr.  Braithwaite, Mr. Hunt, Mr.  Green and Mrs. Pearl, are concerned with the nature of the  'work which may impede their  previously unimpeded access to  the water, according to a letter  received from Rowe which was  read at the March 5 council  meeting.  The owners, prior to construction, had a gradually sloping access to the beach, but this  was interrupted when the sewer  line was installed along the  foreshore area and rip rap used  to build it up.  The seawalk would further  impede their access with the  construction of a concrete curb  and pathway along the length of  their properties.  While the complainants are  concerned, they do not wish to  stand in the way of the  beautification of the waterfront  area and would consent to a  limited construction which did  not cut off their water access.  The Gibsons staff have been  instructed to make a report in  time for the next planning committee meeting, March 13, and  it is hoped that this will clarify  the situation.  "I have a couple of  concerns," said Alderman John  Burnside, who was in the chair  during Mayor Laurente  Labonte's vaction. "It took me  aback when, after I received  a call from Frank Braithwaite, I  went to look at the rip rap and  saw that it was not going to be  moved.  'I recall our intent was that  we would be solving problems  for people who once enjoyed  boat access," Alderman Burnside continued, "and I can't  recall when council changed it  ��� mind."  Consequently Alderman  Burnside has asked staff to investigate the sequence of events  leading up to the present situation, and to include their findings in their report for March  13.

Area E meeting  The Area E Electors' Association meeting will be held at  Cedar Grove school on March 13 at 7:30 p.m, All are  welcome.  Forum debates  reforestation  by Neville Conway  (Reforestation, research and  development, and the integration of secondary manufacturing units into the local forestin-  \. dustry, were agreed-upon formulae for improvement discussed  at the Sunshine Coast Employment Development Society's  Forum on Forestry held in the  Sechelt Senior Citizens' Hall in  Sechelt last Tuesday.  "It is not just a hypothesis  that we can compete successfully with other countries in the  forest industry," said Clay  Perry, western representative of  the Canadian IWA. "Our  capacity to grow wood and  manufacture it, and make a  good living out of it, is a good  bet for a community like  yours," Perry told the packed  house.  ; "The business of planting  and caring for trees over a long  period of time, lends itself to  small management units," said  Kerry, "especially in silva-  culture programs," he added.  "It would be possible to double  . or triple our growth on our best  lands, we could get 10, cubic  metres per hectare per year,"  said Perry, who quoted the present world rate of resource base  reduction as '50 acres a minute'.  Management of the forest industry came under some harsh  criticism from several quarters.  Silvaculture contractor Tony  Greenfield commented on the  government's treatment of its  own holdings.  : "The worst tenant  in this  J^E^s-k #}�� ���provincial goyern-  TiienV*  said  Greenfield.   "Its  level   of  management   is   ab-  solutely abysmal. I've heard the  Canadian forest industry called  the world's most primitive industry, but B.C. is Canada's  only province without a federal-  provincial agreement for forest  management, even Saskatchewan has a management program"..."and Newfoundland,"  interjected an audience  member.  Economist David Fairey who  has been retained by Solidarity  and the Joint Council of Local  Unions to prepare a brief to the  Economic Strategy Commmit-  tee, singled out management as  the industry's main problem.  "We feel that management of  the forestry is intimately bound  up with management of all  resources, land and water," said  Fairey. "Some fundamental  changes in management have to  be made. Our time horizon has  been too short, without consideration for future generations. It's a frontier mentality  but there is no where else to run.  We should adopt the European  attitude of looking after our  resource base."  Fairey recommended a short  term employment program with  reforestation as its key.  "The SCRD should actively  involve itself in an assessment of  the local forests, with an eye to  rehabilitating old forest areas,"  said Fairey, who indicated that  small local management units  were ideal for this type of work.  Specific programs recommended by Fairey included:  long-term reforestation; contracting for Crown land;  establishment of a local tree  nursery; a local training centre  for forestry employee ^research  and development on silvaculture methods.  Mr. Fairey stressed the ideas  of secondary manufacturing as  a natural adjunct to the Coast's  primary logging operations, including the setting up of a paper  manufacturing plant as an offshoot of the Coast's pulp producing facility.  Richard Chamberlin indicated that his low overhead  was the only reason he was able  to stay in business. Chamberlin  also mentioned some of the big  problems the small sawmill  operator faces, including the  ongoing difficulty in obtaining  raw logs and the 'insane'  variance in the raw log price  versus the cut lumber price.  "The biggest problem is  stability in price," said  Chamberlin. "It's like riding a  defective yoyo. It's the most  debilitating thing for the small  business to have to absorb a 40  per cent price change in one  week," said Chamberlin.  He also mentioned the need  for some sort of government  policy regarding logcutters with  sawmills who maintain an unfair monopoly on log supply  over the small businessman who  simply operates a sawmill.  Chamberlin reiterated the  prevailing call for B.C based  research and development.  "No one in B.C. is willing to  produce a portable sawmill or  even supply parts for imported  mills," said Chamberlin. "B.C.  is paying a fantastic premium  on imported know-how and  machinery."  IWA   representative   Clay  Perry also mentioned the lack  of research and. development.  .''Researchi and development of  Please turn to page 6  These two Airspan helicopters were part of an Emergency Services display at the Trail Bay Mall last  week.  ^~- # ��� ��� . It ���Dianne E\ans photo  Capital works needed  Sechelt taxes to rise  Included in Sechelt council's  monthly newsletter available to  residents at the village office is  an outline of council's procedure for tax allocation and expenditure along with the  reasons for a probable-property  tax hike this year.  The finance committee will  soon initiate a series of meetings  with council members to deal  with 1985 revenue and expenditures. Submissions by department heads will be 'scrutinized,  criticized, sent back for revisions, amended, pruned and  finally approved by the committee for submission to council'.  The newsletter goes on to say  'of all the property tax monies  collected by the village barely 25  per cent is retained by the village  for its purposes. The remainder  is, by law, collected by the  village on behalf of numerous  provincial government agencies,  for example, B.C Assessment  Authority; the school board;  the regional hospital; and the  regional district. Moreover the  village is forced to pay out the  monies regardless of whether  the village has been able to, in  fact,   collect   them.   Recently  council was forced to borrow in  anticipation of future revenue in  order to meet such obligations'.  Council indicates that the last  Meeting critical  for local schools  Because the change to a fiscal  year which matches a school  year comes into effect in 1985,  the school board has to adopt  its budget for that year on, or  before, March 15, even though  they have only just finished  adopting the budget for the six  month period January 1 to June  30.  Therefore, the school board  meeting at Cedar Grove will  deal with the following important matters: 1. The board's  budget for the 1985-86 school  year will be adopted. 2. There  will be reconsideration of an in  terim board decision to hold a  referendum for supplementary  budget funding at local cost.  The interim decision was required to meet the statutory  time line, the final decision  relating to whether or not such a  referendum will actually be  held, and if so for how much,  will be made at the meeting.  3. A brief review of education  finance and the fiscal  framework will precede budget  deliberations.  There will be opportunity for  questions and public input on  these topics. Coast News, March 11,1985  aamMmmc+imsmiimmmmmi  Manipulation  Last week's Speech from the Throne, with its call for  renewal, partnership and co-operation, is yet a further illustration of the way in which we British Columbians are  being manipulated by the provincial government and its  highly paid staff of image builders and campaign  designers.  Other than creating a Commissioner of Critical (In-  dustries, there is precious little in the speech to indicate  that anything has changed or to give us much hope of a  recovery from the past three years of abysmal mismanagement.  We have in this province uncontrolled borrowing to pay  for Bennett's now-familiar megaprojects, a deficit which  may reach $1 billion this year, one of the country's highest  unemployment rates, and people programs decimated to a  point where major surgery will be needed to repair them.  We have a province trying to wangle funds out of the  federal government to build a vote-getting Vancouver  Island natural gas pipeline instead of spending the money  where it's needed most, i.e. in the sadly mismanaged forest  industry.  What we don't have is any real renewal, just as we had  no real restraint, except, of course, on the part of the  thousands who line up each week at the food-bank lines or  wait for the end of the month and the welfare cheque.  The hand of Patrick Kinsella might be behind this; if it  isn't, then the hand belongs to someone just like him. This  is the beginning of the 1986 campaign trail for the Socreds  and what we should hope for is that we'll have long  memories the next time we cast our votes.  If we let ourselves be bamboozled by a few catch  phrases instead of demanding real action, we have only  ourselves to blame when recovery and renewal start to  sound like restraint a few months down the line.  Dianne Evans  Trustees suffer  Surely few elected groups can have been so shabbily  treated as school trustees in B.C during the past few  years.  The painful absurdity of the dance of the many budgets  which they have had to endure and which has thrown the  education process into chaos is one more development that  this provincial government should be called to account for.

I'd wandered down the beach  for a visit and found the  oldtimer planting his spring  crop of peas. He seemed pleased  enough to welcome a visitor and  take a break.  "Let's have a cup of tea,"  said Jake, and led me into the  cottage.  The wood stove was still  heating the cabin in the morning  coolness despite the bright sunshine outside and the teapot and  its cosy were sitting on top of it.  In a moment, we were enjoying  a cup of tea in Jake's sunlit kitchen overlooking the Strait of  Georgia. The mountains of  Vancouver Island, still snowcapped, were clearly visible  across the strait:  "What with one thing and  another, you seem to be pretty  well embroiled these days," said  Jake with a twinkle.  "Life goes on," I agreed.  "So tell me, what are you going to change at the newspaper  and is it in retaliation to what_  the other fellow is doing?"  "Just moving our production  day to Wednesday, Jake* and  no jt'sjiot..in.retaliation for  anything. It just seems to us to  make more sense both for our  advertisers and ourselves. After  all for more than 30 of the 40  years the Coast News has been  covering the coast, Wednesday  has been the day of publication.  For 80 per cent of. the papers in  B.C. Wednesday is the date of  publication. We're just rationalizing our operation."  "You realize that there will  be those who don't believe that  your move has nothing to do  A cup of tea  with   the   hullabaloo   up   the  road?"  "Jake, I am constantly amazed at what people insist on  believing or not believing.  "For example, a really nice  lady asked me the other day  whether there really was a cat  called Fidele Catstro that showed up after more than a dozen  years or whether I'd just made it  up to have a good story. I told  her I'd run a picture of the cat.  There are also readers of this  paper who knew the cat 17 years  ago in Fernie and what would  be the purpose of inventing such  a story."  "Never mind the damn cat,"  said Jake. "This other matter is  of more immediate interest. It  seems to me, from what I hear  that virtually everybody believes  your change is in reaction to the  other."  "I can't help that. You'll just  have to take my word for it that  it had more to do with the  printer's schedule than anything  happening locally."  "What do you think of  what's happening up the  road?" said Jake.  "Not my business, Jake. I  "note his first observation was  that the community couldn't afford two free-distribution newspapers then he. announced he  was starting a new one. It isn't  hard to figure which paper he  thinks should go out of  business."  "Yeah, he announces there's  no more free lunch on one page  and announces a new free lunch  two pages over. Logical consistency doesn't seem a strong  point," agreed Jake.  "It's wonderful the flexibility  of position you can attain when  you free yourself from the fetters of the truth."  "That sounds a little bitter,"  said Jake.  "Perhaps just a little but I'm  sure it won't sour the morning.  The gardening lady at the Coast  News thinks you should plant  sweet peas side by side with  your pea plants. She mentioned  it to me earlier this week."  "She did, did she? Well you  can tell her to teach her grand  mother to suck eggs. I've been  planting sweet peas beside my  pea plants since your gardening  lady was cooing in her cradle.  But tell her to come around for  a visit some time and I'll see if I  can give her a few tips."  "I will Jake, I will."  Jake's attention was beginning to wander out the window  towards his garden so I took the  hint, drained my teacup and left  him to it.  Maryanne's    viewpoint  Reunited after some 14 years, Fidele Catstro and friend. Publisher  John Burnside found the cat in his house after his return from Mexico. For the past 10 years she has associated with colleague Dianne  Evans after being found wild up Sechelt Inlet. -m* Bum^e photo  Cable decision still questionable  by Maryanne West  It seems that Victoria alderman Murray Glazier hasn't  been able to create any wave of  enthusiasm to appeal the  CRTC's decision to give Channel 10 to CKVU. Victorians are  just happy not to lose PBS and  if their cable rates are increased  - well they'll have to live with it.  They will however support our  appeal if we make one.  I've talked with the mayor of  Nanaimo who will bring our request for support before council  but reports their cable company  isn't unhappy with the decision  because they'll get Cannel 11 to  offset the extra cost of 9. So  we're more or less on our own if  we want to appeal.  My personal feeing is that we  should appeal. The process is  there for us to use and we have  nothing to lose. It's true we may  not gain anything either, but  there are a number of questions  to which we haven't yet received  satisfactory answers. Cable  companies may well be reluctant to appeal to the Cabinet as  their licence depends to some  extent upon the good will of the  Commission and it would be  understandable if they didn't  want to rock the boat.  The CRTC's decision, all 18  pages of it, was a beautiful  snow job. By the time you'd  read through it everything seemed so right and reasonable, even  that we should be happy to pay  an extra couple of bucks per  month because the microwave  system will bring us a better picture. I don't know about you  but I'm generally quite satisfied  with the reception I get. Since  the change from the Gibsons  head-end to the Sechelt one  there's a lot less interference.  It's true I don't watch television during the day when problems such as glare from the  ocean can cause poor reception,  so I don't think the extra charge  is in my interest.  I may not be very bright but,  as I understand it, the government goes to the considerable  expense of a regulatory agency  - the CRTC - to control a  market place in order to protect  the public interest and the little  guy who might otherwise be  pushed out or gobbled up by the  large operators. I can't see that  allowing one arm of the broadcast industry to benefit at the  expense of another meets those  requirements. While CKVU  may be the little guy among the  broadcasters, the small cable  operators stand to lose the most  to pay for benefits, if any,  which will accrue to CKVU.  The CRTC's naive assumption that cable companies have  lots of money needs to be  challenged. Where does that  money come from? Us, of  course. Should we have to pay  to provide benefits for CKVU?  If so, why?  No one has proven CKVU's  contention that they will reach  180,000 potential new viewers  nor disproved the cable companies' view that 80 per cent of  that potential is already served  by cable.  If CKVU is really to get so  much benefit from VHF 10  then surely they should be expected to recompense us for the  discombobulation to our system  which has been working to our  satisfaction since before they  were thought of?  Another question occurs to  me as interest rates rise again,  does the CRTC have the right to  push small companies into making bad business decisions? No  one would think this is a good  time to borrow a quarter of a  million, and of course the  higher interest rates will mean  higher costs for us.  These and other ideas and an  update on the situation will be  discussed on Channel 10 on  Wednesday with John Thomas  at 7 p.m. You will be able to  phone in to take part in the  discussion.  I Wandered Lonely  as a Cloud  / wandered lonely as a cloud  Thar floats on high o'er vales and hills,  When all at once I saw a crowd,  A host, of golden daffodils;  Beside the lake, beneath the trees,  Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.  Continuous as the stars that shine  And twinkle on the milky way,  They stretched in never-ending line  Along the margin of a bay:.  Ten thousand saw I at a glance,  Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.  The waves beside them danced; but they  Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:  A poet could not.but be gay,  In such a jocund company:  /gazed���and gazed���but little thought  What wealth the show, to me had brought:  For oft, when on my couch Hie,  In vacant or in pensive mood,  They flash upon that inward eye  Which is the bliss of solitude;  And then my heart with pleasure fills,  And dances with the daffodils.  William Wordsworth  J Coast News, March 11,1985  * -��� >. ���  Editor:  I read with interest Margaret  Webb's somewhat hysterical  response to my recently published letter regarding the question  of whether or not a woman who  is home with her children is  working. I would like to clarify  a few points regarding her comments about my letter.  Firstly, she says that welfare  is "not intended to provide a  living" to single mothers but is  "set up as short term aid for  those persons who are in  desperate straits and those who  are too handicapped...to be  able to work".  This does not seem to be a  view point of the Ministry of  Human Resources because they  consider me, as the mother of  two under 12, to be  "unemployable". This is a  degrading term, especially as I  consider myself "already  employed"���but it does show  that it seems to be the intent of  the welfare department that I do  indeed need support while my  children are little.  Then she goes on about  women who "choose to have  children without considering the  financial responsibilities". Such  was not my choice (though I  defend the right of women to  have children outside of marriage too). I was left by my husband in the fifth month of my  second pregnancy, after I had  been the sole economic support  of the family for over two years.  As for my family and me being a burden on the taxpayers as  Ms Webb suggests...tax money  goes many places besides  welfare. Personally I think that  helping fatherless young  families to have an optimum  home life is a better use for tax  money than Expo '86 is!  I'd like to ask Ms Webb a few  questions. Does she really think  that it would do society much  good, in these times of high  unemployment, to force  mothers who wish to stay home  with their children into the  workplace, thus taking jobs  away from young people (male  MORE THAN A MEAL   It's a Family Outing!

Professional Foresters' proposed presentation on forestry,  .'planning and reforestation, at  the 1985 convention of B.C.  municipalities.  ������ Included in the Foresters'  submission is a synopsis of the  present situation as regards  ���reforestation in B.C., titled  jBasic Forest Management.  !'��� The annual cost is estimated  at $200 million to prepare and  reforest all productive sites  disturbed through logging, fires  or pests within the province.  Current annual expenditures  provide approximately $130  million from provincial and  federal sources. Not Satisfactorily Restocked (NSR) lands  are being added at the rate of up  to 50,000 hectares per year; this  adds to the 1,052,000 hectares  of backlog already in existence.  The foregone economic  benefit of this shortfall is $22.9  million per year and the  foregone tax benefit is $3.25  million.  Proposed solutions to the  present situation are outlined in  the Foresters' report under the  title Intensive Forest Management.  The estimated 12 per cent  reduction in allowable cut may  be offset through yield increases  due to genetic improvement,  spacing, thinning, etc. The most  beneficial intensive management will be through planting  the backlog NSR sites.  One million fifty-two thousand hectares of backlog NSR  exist of which 644,550 hectares  are good and medium growing  sites. The cost of reforesting  these good and medium sites  will be $773 million for a yield  gain of 1,967,000m  The increased economic  benefit could be $360 million  per year with increased taxation  benefits in excess of $52 million  per year.  This work is very labour intensive with at least 60 per cent  of the cost going to labour. The  employment generated will be  approximately 13,000 person  years with up to $115 million of  the cost returned to the government in taxes.  At Harmony Hall  by Gladys Coates  March came in like a lion, so  we hope spring will be on its  way. But in Harmony Hall we  forget about the weather, and  enjoy the warm company of  friendship. Carpet bowling is  one of our activities that brings  out either the best or the worst  in us.  Competition is so keen as  points are what counts. The  contest goes till the end of  April, and then we all go out to  dinner, and find out the results.  We get to know one another  very well at these weekly  Wednesday meetings, and hate  to see it end in the spring.  Many of our members are  avid gardeners, which is a great  hobby, and a healthy one. all  you gardeners may have  something to contribute to our  hobby show���photographs or  snaps of your garden, samples  of flowers or an exchange of  plants or shrubs. The date has  not been set, but hope to have a  definite date by the meeting on  April 1.  The Pathfinder girls, who use  our hall rent free, keep the hall  clean, and girls we do appreciate your efforts. Keep up  the good work!

Ed  also helps with the weekly  bingo, and we would like him to  know that we value his membership.  Friday fun night has been  well attended, and we will have  a pot luck dinner on March 29  at 6 p.m., followed by cards,  whist and cribbage commencing  at 7:30 p.m.  Exercise classes on Monday  morning and Friday afternoons,  under the leadership of Lily  Degnan are an enjoyable way of  keeping fit, and anyone interested is welcome.  Ceramics classes on Thursday  afternoons are not too well supported, and may have to be  discontinued.  Social bingo on Mondays,  March 11, 18 and 25 starting at  1:30 p.m. and finishing about 3  p.m. It is held in the annex  where it is warm and cosy.  The monthly trips arranged  by Win Stevens are a very  popular item, and this month's  trip to the Planetarium should  be a pleasant one. A tour of the  Expo '86 site is planned, which  should be quite exciting. There  are so many things in and  around Vancouver to see and  do, but it all takes planning,  and we are grateful to Win for  her efforts, and the results  speak for themselves, as the bus  is always fully booked.  For those who are ill or in  hospital, we wish a speedy  recovery, and look forward to  seeing you all at the next  meeting on April 1 at 1:30 p.m.  School District No. 46 (Sunshine Coast)    *  KINDERGARTEN  REGISTRATION  Parents of pupils entering kindergarten in September  1985 are asked to register their kindergarten-age children  at the elementary school serving their area.

Come on out and see  what's happening in Pender  Harbour.  by George Cooper, 886-8520  Two of the 1984 Elphinstone  grads are looking to careers that  . are somewhat unique.  Debbie Middleton, Sea  Cavalcade Queen last year,  joined the Martineuk School of  the Performing Arts in Port Co-  quitlam last August as a teacher  of dance and musical theatre.  On March 22, Debbie will be  performing professionally in  Penticton as part of a song and  dance group which is providing  some of the program of a convention of the companies in the  Jim Pattison conglomerate.  Debbie said that their part of  the program is designed in a TV  commercial format. When her  mother asked Debbie to be sure  to get some photos of herself  doing her routines, Debbie was  reluctant to oblige.  "You see," she said, "in one  of my outfits I'm done up as a  can of tuna fish."  Brian Webber who hopes to  become an electro-physiologist  has applied to BCIT for the first  two qualifying courses that will  take three years altogether to  complete. Once qualified he  could join a hospital staff as a  maintenance technician in such  equipment as the heart monitor  machine, for example.

Taking it easy, plenty of  time, but there's a lot of traffic  coming towards me; must be  ferry traffic; did I read the  schedule wrong? Was it last  year's? Last week's?  Darn, three schedules in the  car, three different times. Tried  to ask the ferry lady but she  hushed or whooshed me to keep  moving so I don't know if I  caught the 8:30, 8:45 or 9 a.m.  ferry. No matter, I made it.  Parked my little car, went up  escalator, carrying a coffee thermos, thinking, "I have been  riding these ferries since The  Bainbridge" but I have a day of  city driving and I'd better save  my thinking energy for more  important things than finding  my way in and out of a coffee  shop.  Time to disembark, down the  escalator. Little car is gone! Oh  no, what happened? Don't  panic; try humour. Maybe it  caught one of those other ferries  if there really were three between 8:30 and 9 a.m.  I know, I'll just go up the  escalator and start over, but the  damn escalator is only coming  down. No worry, find a stairway and walk up. Round and  ' round and these are stairs not  moving up or down, so I'm  safe. Up and through a door  and around the vehicles; they  are all backwards and there's no  little car.  Around again, the ferry is  landing. What to do? Why, just  what I tell the preschoolers, "If  you are lost tell someone".  I tell two men in orange vests  who'look like they know where  they are that I'm not lost but the  little, car is. They didn't even  laugh or snigger at me, but  politely asked if I drove up a  ramp to get on, then told me exactly where little car was.  I feel like everybody is looking at me, running to little car,  but they can't be, they are too  busy driving off. (I'll bet those  two in the orange vests moved it  as they know exactly where it  ���was.) Here I am, frazzled and*;  I'm miles from that downtown  traffic.  Over Lions Gate Bridge and  through the park, can't even  look around, everyone is  tailgating. I leave a car length  between mine and the one  ahead, but in a short distance of  being polite three cars pulled  ahead and filled the gap. By the  time I hit Granville and Georgia  I was tailgating.  That's okay, I have made this  trip for years, zoom along, a  right turn then a left onto Cam-  bie Street Bridge, "Eeeeeech,  it's gone or closed or  something."  Round and round, under and  over, and across, finally arrive  to see the clinic walls falling in,  floor by floor, people rushing  every which way, no one seems  to care that the Heather Street  Clinic is coming down.  The little back door parking  lot, that years ago was too small  to park my big car in is gone,  replaced by a huge carpark  building that I had no intention  We  AUTOPRO    Guarantee  iHi  mm  Open  6 days  a week  to serve  You.

There at the street corner is a  parking place, almost a miracle.  I park, then read sign "No  Parking within 6 m". How  many feet is 6 m? I'm running  out of time, I'll take" a chance, if  little car is towed away I'll walk  back to Horseshoe Bay and  never come to the city again.  The new clinic is so big there  are nice ladies to take you, not  direct you, to each place you  have to find. It's so modern the  bathroom door has two  silhouettes on it, a man and a  woman. I didn't look in to see  what sort of conveniences there  were for us to share.  I did find my way out and  there was little car waiting, 6  m's from the corner, I guess, as  no one towed it away.  Back to Horseshoe Bay and  onto the ferry, I'm safe and  sound.  I laugh when I tell those two  in the orange vests, "No tricks  with little car this trip"; I'm just  too happy to get frazzled since  the nice lady at A. Maxwell  Evans Clinic told me I don't  have to go back anymore: Case  arrested/  SIGNS OF SPRING  The pussy willows are out but  were covered with snow on  Monday morning.  Yes, we had snow on Monday; the next two mornings they  were covered with frost; maybe  they will be in full bloom by  March 20, the first day of spring.  The loons are back, arriving  almost the same day as last  year,  (and the night of full  moon).

A return to competitive logger sports is being attempted and the emphasis is on  local entertainment. Sechelt  elementary school will be raising  its 17 foot school totem pole in  a special ceremony complete  with dancers. The Royal Canadian Legion will be celebrating  its Diamond Jubilee and  Guiding its seventy-fifth ann-  niversary. The second annual  Better Beater Race will be bigger and better. The Arts Council is sponsoring a poster contest  and the Press's trophy for best  decorated window is up for  grabs.  Timber Days is now a  registered society with an executive   to   provide   on-going  guidance. Jerry-Lou Wickwire,  chairperson, emphasises the  society is looking for new ideas,  ways of doing things and  especially new faces. What  would you like to see at Timber  Days?  One decision the society must  make is whether other than  non-profit organizations should  be allowed to locate in Hackett  Park during the celebrations.  Last year the flea market on the  Monday was the first departure  from a policy, of non-profit  groups only. Requests for space  have been received from small  commercial concerns and a  decison must be made.  Jerrie-Lou is appealing to the  pubUc to take this opportunity  to make their views known.  Membership in the society ($1  for either individual or group)  will give a vote on this and other  matters. Next meeting is Tuesday, March 12, 6:30 at the  village hall.  It has come to our attention  that there are trophies floating  around which have not been  presented in recent years due to  the event not being held. If you  are the custodian of such a  trophy and would like to discuss  reactivating it or the event,  please come to the meeting or  call us.  If you have an idea and/or  would like to work on an event,  advertising or anything else you  can dream up, we'd like to hear  from you.  For information call Jerrie-  Lou at 885-9750, Carol at  885-5036 after 5 or Mike at  885-5981 during office hours.  Sechelt Seniors in action  by Robert Foxall  I am going to call this week  "Reminder Week" because  while I was casting about for a  subject for this week's article I  was asked to remind the  members of a number of subjects. The first, an important  matter to all members, was that  annual dues are now DUE and  payable. The treasurer will be in  attendance at the monthly  meeting on March 21.  The spring tea and bake sale  will be held March 30. Doors  will open at 1 p.m.  Seniors' lottery tickets are going into the mail almost any day  now. You are asked to turn  these into the treasurer, to be  forwarded to Vancouver  because, the Branch will recieve  30 per cent commission on any  sales we remit, which will go to  swell our building fund.  Our membership, at the time  of the executive meeting, stood  at 325 of which 43 are new  members. We should soon be  reaching the record figure of  over 500 we attained during  1984.  Arts and crafts are doing very  well on the sale of pom-poms. It  seems that marriage is still a  popular institution. Long may it  be so.  All of our activities are show  ing increased attendance: carpet  bowling, 5-pin bowling, dancing and other activities are all  enjoying increased attendance.  Jack Bushell reminds me that  there is room for more musicians with the "69'ers". If you  would like to be part of this live  ly group telephone Jack Bushell  at 885-5463  Patience must continue to be  our watchword in regard to our  new hall because very soon our  governments are going to realize  that seniors will constitute  another very vital industry.

Coast News, March 11,1985  challenged  Proposed legislation to give  the ministry of fisheries and  oceans unprecedented power  over the allocation of fish stocks  will have a rough time passing  through the House of Commons, MP Ray Skelly has warned the Conservative government. "It's typical that these  amendments to the Fisheries  Act which would give the  fisheries minister the right to  make vital decisions on his own  and without consultation, are  themselves made without consultation," the NDP fisheries  critic said.  "It's considered parliamentary procedure to at least meet  with opposition critics before  introducing such legislation.  But Mr. Fraser, minister of  fisheres and oceans, hasn't even  bothered to do that."  In a March 6 speech to the  House, Skelly urged the Conservative government to improve  the proposed legislation before  making it law.  "If we had any indication  from the minister that a fair and  effective consultation body was  going to be put into place to  determine how allocations will  be made and how the management will be administered, this  bill would have a very easy  passage through the House," he  said. "Without substantive  agreement it is going to have a  rough time."  The proposed amendment introduced March 4 is the result  of two court decisions last summer. A federal judge ruled that  the Fisheries Act does not give a  minister the right to allocate fish  to specific user groups which  means that the minister cannot  favour one type of fisherman  such as- sports fishermei  natives, commercial troll t.<  gillnetters or seiners.  "We've known about this  dilemma since last August,"  Skelly said. "The minister has  been involved with this issue for  a considerable period of time. I  know my colleagues and I have  been asking for the legislation to ^  be brought forward so we could*  deal with it, ask questions about  it and hear witnesses.  Skelly said he has consulted  . with various groups involved in  the West Coast fishing industry  and they all agree the legislation  should not be passed until a  clear formula is developed for  the allocation of fish.  Processing  uses local  skills  The basis of work in local  production and processing is the  movement towards full utilization of local skills and experience and/or resources and  advantages to produce employment based on development.  These resources and skills range  from the finely tuned designs of  an artist to the processing of  . wild berry plants to new uses for  waste woods.  Because of & ... ~r breadth  of this econor-.i. wCtor, the opportunities .xt%, also widely  variable for maverick individual  business-persons to common  ownership or co-operative  developments.  The Economic/Employment  Strategy Committee requires the  opinions of local residents as to  preferred areas of development  with local production and processing as input to an  economic/employment strategy  for the Sunshine Coast Region.

We do that in this country���celebrate the Irish and the  Scottish, "national" days particularly, as well as others,  and it's kind of nice. The first time I celebrated with the  Scottish, for instance, at their annual "Robbie Burns"  feast, was some years ago. So far as I know I have no  claim to Scottish ancestry, but I had a great time!  I am, however, a quarter-breed Irish, in that my  grandmother on my fathers's side of the family was of  true Irish stock. Given her address, by my father who  had not seen her since he was a mere lad, I went to see  her in Portsmouth during WW II. In her eighties, she was  tall, proud, and walked straight as a ramrod. She took  my face in her hands muttering "Dodo", the endearing'  expression for George, which was my father's name.  Her's was a sad life. An Irish Catholic house maiden,  she met and fell in love with my grandfather, an  Englishman, whose family religion was that of the  ' 'staunch Wesleyan''. They married without the goodwill  and permission of their respective parents and were promptly cast off the family lines and support. Hardship  befell the young couple when my grandfather became ill  and died, leaving her with four young children���two  boys and two girls. The church took charge of the boys,  who at ages 12 and 13 were shipped off to a mission in  Prince Albert, Canada. Those were different times.  This is not intended as a "personal'' story except to illustrate a bit of the continuing religious problems between Protestant and Catholic in that torn country���dear  old Ireland.  St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland was taken there  as a slave, from the south of France, as a mere boy of  14. He was a Christian, and saw how the Druids worshipped pagan Gods. After six years, he escaped, and  made his way to Gaul. In response to a vision commanding him to evangelize Ireland, he began studying for the  priesthood.  He returned to Ireland as an ordained deacon, and was  consecrated in 432 A.D. upon the death of the first  Bishop of Ireland, thus becoming the second. In spite of  determined opposition from the Druids, Patrick organized the scattereed Christian communities and established  numerous churches. He also converted most of the royal  family.  After a visit to Rome around the year 442 Patrick  founded the Cathedral Church of Armagh, in Ulster,  which soon became the spiritual centre of the Irish  church.  There are numerous accounts of his maraculous doings including that of his driving the snakes out of  Ireland���and it is true to this day (I am told) that there,  are no snakes in Ireland.  This man is highly esteemed not only in Ireland, but  wherever the Irish immigrants and their descendants  reside.' May ye who feast and celebrate on this day,  "make sure ye see no snakes".  My thanks to Patrick Joseph Murphy, Frances  Mahoney and Encyclopedia International for much of the  information I needed to write this Shop Talk, and may  peace soon bless that ancient land.  by Bill Edney  fills week  Tourism is the third largest  revenue generating industry in  B.C. In 1983, tourism revenues  reached $2.2 billion, up some  7.3 per cent over 1982 levels. It  constitutes approximately 5 per  cent of the gross provincial product.  It is no accident that tourism  is growing at the same time that  new technologies are transforming the way that people live,  work and play. These technologies have two major impacts which directly spur the.  development of tourism and the  retirement industry by increasing leisure time and speeding up  communications and transportation.  Throughout industrial countries the work week for most  people is already less than 40  hours, and it is estimated that  by 1990, the majority of people  will have jobs which call for 35  hours or less. This would be a  decrease of more than 40 per  cent in the length of the average  work week since 1945. It also  means that early retirement and  semi-retirement are increasingly  preferred Mfestyle options.  The ' ement industry also-  benefit; -om and requires,  similar r. ironmental, recreational. . cultural facilities as  the tou�� >.i industry. Both place  great emphasis on the service  and trade infrastructure in a  region.  In this context, the tourism  and the- retirement industries  appear to be ready and" viable  for future development. The  Economic/Employment Strategy Committee is responding to  the substantial amount of  public interest in these two industries by holding a joint  forum on tourism and retirement as input to an economic/  employment strategy for the  Sunshine Coast region. The  forum is to be held Tuesday,  March 12, 1985, 7:30 p.m. at  the Senior Citizens' Hall,  Sechelt.  Keynote speakers will be: on.  tourism, James McGregor,  Tourism Planner, Maclaren  Plansearch; on retirement,  Robert Boyle, Architect, Chairman, Nanaimo's Retirement  Expo Committee. Commentator will be Jean Swanson,  Solidarity Coalition.  Everyone is welcome.  Summer  jobs plan  Details of Challenge '85, the  new provincial government  summer employment program  have just been released and applications may be submitted until March 29 for any of the programs.  The program will operate  from April 29 until September  6, except for tourist information centres and museums where  funding will be available  until September 13. All positions must be created for a  minimum of six weeks.  Businesses and farms may  receive 50 per cent wage reimbursement up to $2.50 per hour,  municipalities may receive  75 per cent of the provincial  minimum wage ($3.65 per hour)  and mandatory employee  benefits, and community and  non-profit organizations may  receive 100 per cent wage reimbursement up to $3.65 per hour  and mandatory employee  benefits plus $20 per work week  for other costs.  Tourist information centres  and museums will receive 100  per cent wage reimbursement up  to $3.65 per hour and mandatory employee benefits plus  some costs related to training  courses.  Student venture loans are also  available, up to $2,000 per student, or, in cases of partnerships, $3,000. These loans are  for students who wish to plan  and operate businesses during  the summer.  Enquiries should be directed  to offices of Ministry of  Labour, Apprenticeship and  Employment Training Programs or the Ministry of Industry and Small Business  Development.  To obtain application forms,  contact the Employment  Development Branch, 1080  Hornby Street, Vancouver,  B.C. V6Z 1V6, or call 681-1106.

After all, director Betty Keller  had not yet graced the Sunshine  Coast with her presence back in  1970 when the Driftwood  Players presented their first  three-act production, See How  They Run, and Betty chose the  cast for The Ladies' Tailor.  Nonetheless for those of us  who were involved in that production there is a nostalgic content. The cast of the play by the  French Farceur Feydeau which  opens a four-night run in pib-  sons this Wednesday has four,  people who performed in See'/  How They Run 15 years ago.:  Notably   there   is   Colleen  Elson, now principal of Cedar   ���  Grove elementary school. Ms  Elson appeared memorably as  Miss SkillingS in See How They "  Run* / -X -:;.���'  Nest Lewis has been-the most  consistently active of the former  group. She appeared as  Penelope Toop in See How  They Run and in many  memorable parts since.

I believe this is  the first time George has appeared on stage since The Waltz  of the Toreadors in 1971.  Pat Baker, back on the Coast  after a long absence, is also  remembered for his farcical antics in See How They Run.  Yours truly, who makes a  fifth carry-over, did not appear  in See How They Run but was  responsible for the direction.  It is a joy to work with old  friends again especially under a  director as capable as Betty  Keller ,and I hope this production by Driftwood II will give as  much pleasure as did that other  farce 15 years ago.

Ramhlings of a Rover  Coast News, March 11,1985  13.  by Dee Cee  I am unable to offer any  reasonable explanation for the  fact that I remained remarkably  sober during the ��� two-week  period we spent in Ceylon (Sri  Lanka) unloading our cargo of  salt and taking on a mixed cargo  of plumbago (graphite), copra  and tea destined for Japan.  It could have been because of  the influence of Mattie, the  Sinhalese girl; she was a  Moslem and eschewed everything alcoholic; or it could have  been that Captain Craig was  putting in some overtime on the  prayer mat up on the bridge.  Somewhat sadly I have to report  that I fell off the wagon two  nights before we were due to sail  and really went on a binge.  I had heard from a casual acquaintance whom I met in a bar  that, while there was a dearth of  what could be termed "ladies of  easy virtue" in Colombo itself,  there was a plethora of the same  out at a place called Slave  Island. So thither I headed,  after a series of stops at  numerous watering holes along  the way.  Apparently, from what I  gathered later, Slave Island was  a good place to stay away from,  especially if one was alone. It  had formerly been a large compound that housed the slaves of  the plantation owners years ago  but the old resentments remained and, instead of being received as I had expected with open  arms, 1 was robbed and given a  severe beating by a gang of ruffians whom I had approached  to enquire directions to the  nearest house of ill-fame.  In the fracas I lost my wrist-  watch, my wallet and my shoes  and probably I was lucky in not  having lost my life. I arrived  back at the ship in rough  shape���eyes- blackened, cuts  and abrasions all over and my  shirt torn into ribbons. The only  part of it that had stayed intact  was the collar and I often  thought I should have kept it  and forwarded it to the Arrow  Shirt Company. It would have  been a wonderful testimony to  support their claims of un-  wrinkled collars that never  needed ironing!  In spite of all this I was genuinely sorry to leave Ceylon. It  was such a beautiful island and  I had really enjoyed Mattie's  company, even though it had  been of a platonic nature.  I have little recollection of the  journey to Japan other than the  terrifically hot weather we encountered on our way through  the Strait of Malacca. Once  again I suffered the tortures of  prickly heat and couldn't endure the stifling air in my cabin  which was situated over the  engine room, so I dragged my  mattress up on to the boat deck  and slept there. At least one  could enjoy a little relief  although the vagrant breezes  were few.  It was about this time we  discovered that we had  unknowingly taken on some  new passengers in the form of  cockroaches. They were  thought to have been hiding in  At the Arts Centre  Portraiture show  The annual theme exhibition  at the Arts Centre, Sechelt, this  year featuring portraiture, is  open to the public as ot  Wednesday, March 13, with a  reception for the participating  artists and public on Saturday,  March 16 from 2 to 4 p.m.  Portraiture has been in and  out of fashion ever since the  Egyptians but is always being  done by someone somewhere.  Nowadays, photographic portraiture is obviously the most  popular and there will be some  good examples of this in the  show.  However, painters can do  things photographers can't, and  the expressionist portrait is just  as valid a representation of a  person as a photographic  likeness, so, as an interesting  contrast, there will be examples  of this type of portraiture too.  Children's film  The children's film "Captains Courageous" starring  Spencer Tracey and Freddie  Bartholemew will be shown at  the Arts Centre, Sechelt on Friday, March 15, starting at 7  p.m. with an admission at the  door of $2 per person.  The story of this film, a fine  adaptation of a Rudyard Kipling story, was made in  Hollywood in 1937, and concerns a spoilt, rich brat (Freddie  Bartholemew) who falls overboard from a passenger liner  steaming across the Atlantic.

As far as I know, from  my experience, all freighters  carry them and their co-  travellers, rats. However I had  never seen anything to approach  these in size. Some of them were  three to four inches long and  when I first saw them I thought  they were mice! There was  nothing we could do about it till  we reached Yokohama, where  the ship had to be fumigated  before we were allowed to dock.  Yokohama and other ports in  Japan were seemingly becoming  routine for me and I cannot  remember any outstanding incidents that took place. We enjoyed the bars and cabarets and  in one of the latter, I met a charming little Japanese girl  Machiko who, although I did  not know it at the time, was to  play a major part in my life on a  subsequent visit to these scattered islands.  I still was on the best of terms  with Captain Craig and at his  invitation spent many an enjoyable evening with him in his  cabin, where we discussed  everything from philosophy and  theology to the many ports he  called at in his long life at sea.  He told me that He had been  born in Glasgow where he was  the eldest of a family of eleven.  and that his father has been a  coal-miner   and   desperately  poor. He had left home at 16  years of age and had shipped  out as a cabin boy, later to  "graduate" as a deck-hand  and, by dint of a lot of study,  had worked his way up through  the ranks till he became captain  of his own ship.  Through all this recital, he  was very modest regarding his  achievement but he really  dumbfounded me when he announced that this was his last  trip. He was quitting the seafaring life and going to Chicago to  join his wife there doing missionary work in the roughest  and toughest of slums.  There is nothing I can add to  this other than to speak with the  deepest respect of a man who,  after having spent practically all  his life in his struggle to reach  the top, obeys a call to renounce  it all and take up the task of  helping others less fortunate  than himself.  Captain Craig, wherever you  are and whatever you are doing,  1 salute you. You were undoubtedly the finest captain I  ever served under and I shall  never forget yOu. You taught  me a lesson that will remain in  my memory as long a I live and  I am deeply grateful. Oh yes, I  still have the Bible and the lovely tapestry you gave me when  we paid off the ship at the Terminal Docks in Vancouver.  DRAWING...MORE!  Maurice Splra does It again!

Roberts Creek and  Sechelt are possible entries as  well.  The Bronco division has four  established teams in Gibsons  and the addition this year of  Pender Harbour and possibly  Sechelt would make- a highly  competitive league.  The Pony division has three  Gibsons teams this year with  hopefully one each from Sechelt  and Pender Harbour.  So, if you reside from Port  Mellon to West Sechelt and  wish to play baseball this summer, register this weekend at the  Sunnycrest Mall in Gibsons.

The Lomas  maintained consistent ball  possession in line out and set  scrum play, allowing Gibsons  little opportunity for any offensive thrust. Consequently the  blue shirts had a tough tackling  practise, and tackle they did.  Lomas were held up on  numerous goal line attacks but  eventally proved dominant,  scoring twice.  Gibsons scrummers were  manhandled, often losing their  own mauls and rucks. Binding  is an essential part of the loose  ruck but until Gibsons learns to  look for the ball carrier and  turn him to their side of the play  they'll continue to lose possession.  The home town three line  played a strong defensive game  but failed to move the ball with  any continuity. Grub and pop  kicks are also part of rugby but  when they are necessary. Gibsons continues to show determination and in time will be a  contender in the Vancouver  fourth division league.  Gibsons' first 15 travelled to  Vancouver's Braemar Park to  take on the Red Lions. Red  Lions and Meralomas were the  only two teams to defeat Gibsons in the 1984 third division  fall season.  On Saturday, March 2, the  blue shirts got their vengeance  by thumping the Lions, 30-6.  Club captain, stand-off Dave  Rainer commented that his  scrummers provided continuous  ball possession, and took the  scoring control, cashing in three  tries.

However two small points  ascribed to me perhaps should  be enlarged upon. Firstly  "Employment   was   not   the  issue" and was certainly meant  that way, because there were  many matters of interest and  concern to the farmer, including  the fact that he is putting  himself right into the front line  of assuming heavy financial  risk, is not only creating a viable  investment for himself and his  family, but also creating job opportunities for others.  Secondly the choice of words  used in stating that we see  ourselves as "Conservationists  rather than hunters" was  possibly inadequate. What I  had in mind in making this  reference was that the commercial fisherman is a hunter who  goes into the wild literally to  hunt fish in circumstances  where the catch is always chancy and the economics of his  operation require that he catches the greatest number of fish  possible in the shortest required  time, with, at least while the  hunt is on, probably very little  thought to conservation.  To illustrate this point consider today's report on the roe  herring fishery in the Gulf of  Georgia, when no doubt many  fishermen thought of all the  good salmon food that was being pulled out of the water, and  had to weigh this against the  fact that today's quick palliative  to their bank accounts, is in  reality a borrowing from the  future.  The fish farmer on the other  hand is vitally interested in the  preservation and nurturing of  his fish from the time they are  conceived to the time they are  harvested, and in reality beyond  that point because one of the  principal selling features of a  farming operation is to deliver a  consistently high quality product at a fair price. All of this  involves a well planned exercise  involving high standards of  animal husbandry without  which he will surely fail.  In other words, there is a considerable difference in attitude  between the fish farmer and the  commercial fisherman dictated  by the characteristics of the  method alone, and certainly not  by the personality of the individuals involved, as is proven  by the fact that some commercial fishermen are becoming fish  farmers in spite of the  UFAWU.  Notwithstanding these fine  points, neither myself or this  organization are seeking to  draw battlelines with commercial fishermen, many of whom  are personal friends. In no sense  are we throwing out challenges,  but in every sense we are saying  that there are lots of grounds  for co-operation between fish  farmers and commercial  fishermen and the two different  methods of providing fish for  the market should be able to coexist with each other.  At the meeting which was the  subject of your article, there can  New  start  possible  Editor:  I would like to take the opportunity to thank all the people  who responded to my letter to  the editor on February 18.  There were many people interested in my ideas. I will be at  the meeting on March 13 to  discuss small manufacturing (at  the Senior Citizens' Hall in  Sechelt, 8 p.m.).  I have been promised a  warehouse to start a project and  perhaps a vehicle if necessary. If  people will get together, give  donations, help each other we  can start businesses that will  help to employ many people.  George Herie  , ���   COAST NEWS    .  Classifieds  ���'���:'.'.

Meggs turned on a  well-orchestrated and highly  polished performance which  though highly slanted must have  been a source of satisfaction to  those in the audience who were  his supporters. Meggs poured  scorn on the aquaculture industry, on the possibility of  government aid in financing,  and on its ability to create jobs,  likening us to some new group  of corporate welfare bums.  Considering the heavy support that the commercial fishing  industry has enjoyed over many  years this sounds rather hollow.  Without blackening salmonid  enhancement programs,  government hatcheries,  biological stations and a variety  of other tax-supported programs, we have to ask what are  these other than forms of financial assistance to the commercial  fishing industry?  One can recall shipbuilding  subsidies, tax shelters and low  interest loans to fishermen as  being amongst the reasons for  the proliferation of a large,  overly-efficient fleet of vessels  chasing too few fish. Public and  private banking funds helped  create this mammoth fleet and  now, one way or another,  public funds are going to have  to buy back the vessels.  Amongst the vocal opposition to aquaculture at the  meeting, was that offered by the  local Sunshine Coast Solidarity  Committee. We have viewed  their press release of February  23 which contains some good  ideas including secondary processing of shellfish, and yet the  UFAWU calls for a  moratorium on aquaculture.  Confusion indeed, but no less  confusing than the strong plea  put forward by the same group  for a large, new, labour intensive sawmill on the Sunshine  Coast, when it is obvious that  the local forest industry is  burdened with problems and at  least one major sawmill is in  receivership.  Another example of crazy  economics can be mentioned.  According to the Science Council of Canada, subsidies, bailouts, assistance of one sort or  another when added to the  capital and operating costs of  the fishing fleet result in a landed cost of chinook of about  $9.50 per pound after making  full allowance for everything including natural wastage, so can  there be any wonder that  aquaculture has positive attractions, which are not based, as  Mr. Meggs would have us  believe, on some pipe-dream notions created by intellectual  think-tanks, but on the realities  of today which are well proven  in similar environmental circumstances to our own, in  Scotland and Norway.  The only issue we can see,  where the commercial fisherman may have some legitimate  complaint is in the allocation of  chinook salmon eggs, from  government hatcheries. The  problem should be self-  eliminating as brood stocks are  built up by aquaculturists, but  to call for a total moratorium  on aquaculture, with cries that  fish farming is a "sham and  hoax" is a supreme example of  union   one-sidedness   and  overkill. After all, aquaculture is  not confined to the farming of  salmon or saltwater species  alone. Salt and freshwater trout  oysters and several other types  of shellfish are or could be  cultured on a considerable scale  not to mention several varieties  of edible seaweeds.    .  In Norway, which in many  ways indicates the pattern of  our development here, salmon  farming has created a great new  industry, with one of the important side benefits being that  many fishermen are continuously and profitably employed in  catching species which become  part of the salmon feed.  We all know that the decline  in the commercial salmon catching industry has not been  caused by anything resulting  from aquaculture. What is  needed is co-operation not confrontation between commercial  fishermen and aquaculturists, as  has occurred in Norway where  amongst the principal beneficiaries of fish farming are to  be found, the fishermen  themselves.

Seniors must apply  for supplement  Pensioners on the Sunshine  Coast have one month to apply  for the Guaranteed Income  Supplement of the Old Age  Security, says Federal Income  Security Programs- District  manager Roy Wiley.  Some 150,000 B.C. pensioners already receive the supplement in addition to the Old  Age Security Pension, but must  re-apply by March 31, 1985 to  avoid any reduction in their  monthly cheques.  The Guaranteed Income Supplement requires annual application because of possible  changes in income of the recipient.  Pensioners who had income  from bank or bond interest, investments,   superannuation   or  The basic Old Age Security  pension for the first three months of 1985 has been increased  to $273.80. The maximum  Guaranteed Income Supplement paid to a single pensioner  has been increased to $325.41,  making a total income of  $599.21 for a person receiving  both the Old Age Security pension and the maximum Guaranteed Income Supplement. .

Comments were also  made by John Rich and Lynn  Wallace of the Bowen Island  Community School Association.  In his brief Butcher .suggested  that "the most critical problem  facing the public education  system today... is teacher  morale", and went on to say  that the deliberate attempts by  the present' government to  reduce class sizes and denigrate  teacher performance has  resulted in a decline in teacher  effectiveness.  The government has continually given teachers the  message that, "we don't trust  you", which, Butcher feels, has  a very negative effect on  morale.  He sees as part of the solution  a new focus on human beings -  "the people in education who  make this enterprise work".  What makes the school effective  is not so much the excellent  teacher, he proposes, "but the  unusual effort on the part of the  ordinary teacher.  "We need to stimulate or  dinary people into extraordinary effort... Teachers ��� must  be allowed to become proud of  their profession." More  freedom at the local board level  as well as at the local school  level, more money for professional development, and a curriculum that meets the needs of  the future, are all ways Butcher  sees to encourage excellence.  As long as the necessary  changes in attitude do not occur, in government, and on the  part of the Teachers' Federation, concludes the brief,  "forget excellence, forget success and forget your teachers".  John Rich of Bowen Island,  expressed concerns heard  throughout the series of  forums. As a statistician, he sees  the review process as an impossible project; he feels that it  is impossible for the review  team to bring out meaningful  results from anecdotal types of  reponse.  Another of his concerns is  that public education should  have priority for funds and  organizational assistance, and  that the current poor government to public and government  to teacher relations do not make  for confidence in the system or  for good education.  Lynn    Wallace's   concerns  were yet another echo of those  voiced by others in School  District #46 over the last four  weeks; that the review process is  inadequate in its length of time  allowed and in the breadth of  the questions to be answered.  David Short, review process  co-ordinator, has advised that if  any members of the public have  concerns or briefs they wish to  submit to the review board it is  possible to do so until March  15.  ��� i  GIBSONS LANDING TAX SERVICE  Income Tax Preparation  Small Business Accounting  Corporation & Proprietorship  Hours:  Mori to Sat  10 - 5  We will pick-up & deliver  886-8229 or 886-2177  Across from Molly's Reach above Gramma's Pub   vj^Rj'jyyui"  Land buy to wait  ' Expandable  High-Performance  Computer System  A versatile personal  computer with the  power to perform a  wide variety of home  and business functions  CRT 30  %  Sechelt council have received  an offer from Mitten Realty to  sell the village two adjacent lots  for the proposed museum, to be  installed in the relocated  Anglican Church.
