Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C  V8V 1X4  85.4  raw  by Maryanne West  The frustrations of trying to  serve as trustee of the standards  of education parents wish for  their children against the apparent determination of the  provincial government to lower  those standards in the name of  restraint caught up with two'  trustees at the special school  board meeting on Thursday.  Trustees Stephen and  Fairweather handed in their  resignations, Stephen's to take  effect immediately and  Fairweather's from May 15,  1985.  The last straw for Trustee  Stephen came after three years  of grappling with the government's fiscal policies when he  discovered that not only was he  being forced by the government  to pass a budget over $400,000  less than the minimum considered by the board as acceptable to maintain the present  ��� level of service to students, but  the government, while making  us accept lower funding is, at  the same time, making us pay  more for it.  While we should have expected to pay 40 percent less on  our school taxes this year  because of the cuts required by  Victoria, we shall in fact end up  paying a couple of mils more  than last year because the  government has quietly, by  Order in Council, changed the  60/40 cost sharing ratio which  has been .in effect for many  years to a 55/45 split.  Trustee Stephen who has  made a reputation for himself  of absolute sincerity and honesty in all his deliberations while  serving as trustee found this a.  manoeuvre in which he could  take no part. He resigned before .  the vote for the tax by-law came  up for re-consideration. It had  been, stalled by a three to three  vote   at   Tuesday's   regular  meeting and had to be passed by  May 1.  Trustee Fairweather, who has  only served on the board since  November, said he felt it was  meaningless to continue under  present conditions, that he felt  he could serve no useful purpose in the cause of education.  In a telephone conversation he  made it clear that he felt his  resignation was the only useful  action left to him, that he has a  strong sense of foreboding that ���  in the name of restraint the  government is bent upon the '  demise of the public school  system. ?  He described the government's move to increase taxes ":  while at the same time reducing :  services to children as "bloody ".;  dreadful", saying "I feel repuls- I  ed, astonished, terrified." �����  A by-election will be called :  for the remaining 6 months of .  Trustee Stephen's term and the  18 months left in Trustee  Fairweather's term.  Preceding Tuesday night's  .school board meeting summons  were' served on behalf of  Trustee Bulmer on fellow  Trustees Edmonds, Douglas,  Muryn and Stephen (Trustee  Frizzell was absent) and  Secretary-treasurer Mills.  This dates back to the  November 1984 judicial recount  for which Trustee Bulmer  sought legal;advice, for the costs  of which she is trying to obtain  reimbursement from the school  board.  An emotional appeal was  made by Trustee Frizzell at that  time which resulted in a motion  to pay legal expenses, not exceeding $2000, a motion which  was subsequently tabled for reconsideration on advice from  the board's legal counsel.  At Tuesday's meeting'Trustee  Muryn failed to get a seconder  for a motion to rescind  the  November 1984 motion and a  _ motion by Trustee Stephen to  sustain the original motion was  defeated three to two.  This left everything up in the  air so Secretary Mills asked advice from Ian Issard, parliamentarian in charge of procedure  for the Victoria legislature. His  reply was that a motion with no  seconder isn't a motion and that  as the motion to sustain the  November motion was  defeated, the original motion is  now null and void.  Tuesday night's meeting was  attended by an overflow crowd  of teachers in support of their  position that the section of their  contract dealing with personnel  practises may only be changed  by mutual consent. This had  become an issue when the board  moved unilaterally to terminate  that section of the contract.  Testers had been asked to attend for at "least 30 minutes"  in a show of strength in support  of the Sechelt Teachers'  Association's stand in the matter.  AJmost all had left before the  decision to accede, under pro;  test, to the education minister's  demand for an operating budget  in line with his fiscal recommenr  dations, was made. Trustees  voted five to one to the budget.  cuts this will entail, Trustee  Fairweather registering the no  vote. Trustee Frizzell was ab>,  sent.  Further   difficulty   was   ex-,  perienced in passing the annual -  Tax   Rate   Bylaw   which   will  establish the mill rate, trustees .  being incensed at the news that  even though they had unwilling^ -  ly agreed to budget cuts from  last year's level which will result  in further loss of opportunities  for students, the mill rate on the  Sunshine Coast will go up, not  down as one would logically ex*'  Please turn to page 17  Residents tell SCRD  "Check facts  with locals"  Over 200 residents from J he Sunshine Coast marched under the  Peace Committee's banner in Vancouver's Walk for Peace last  Saturday. Total participation in the Walk for Peace was estimated  at just over 80,000, a figure the organizers considered to be high in  view of the cold and wet morning weather.  ���Brad Benson photo  First time on Coast  Cap College Completion held  by Brad Benson  Capilano College, which has  been offering courses on the  Sunshine Coast since 1977, saw  its first local Completion  (graduation) Ceremony last  Wednesday. Held in North  Vancouver in previous years,  this year's ceremony took place  at the Sechelt campus to a  standing room only crowd of  students, faculty and well-  wishers.  r~The intimate ceremony was  kicked off with April Struthers,  the college's community services  assistant, who introduced the  guests and faculty.  On hand to deliver the main  address was Dr. Paul Gallagher,  the college's principal, who  stressed his appreciation for the  work being done on the Sechelt  campus and the opportunity  that the smaller, local ceremony  afforded him to meet his  students individually.  Twenty students received  Certificates of Completion in  the Office Technology program, a four-month intensive  course, while 45 students reciev-  ed Letter of Completion in the  Adult Upgrading programs and  the Native Job Readiness Training (NJRT) programs.  A special Tuition Award was  given by the college to the  Sechelt Indian Band in appreciation for the efforts the  Band has made over the years in  the area of education. Receiving  the award was Gertie Pierre, the  Band's education co-ordinator,  who, in turn, expressed appreciation for the college's cooperation in designing technical  courses relevant to the needs of  Band members.  Dr. Paul Gallagher, who  began his career with Capilano  College as principal in 1977, will  be leaving this month to accept  the position of president of  Vancouver   Community   Col  lege. Dr. Gallagher, in responding to a question from the Coast  News as to the effect of the provincial government's restraint  programs on the future of the  the board of directors' position  that since their college level  that since their college level  courses are "the only show in  town" for the Sunshine Coast,  they will continue to be staunchly committed to the area.  A delegation of North Lake  citizens, with Egmont teacher  Ron Fearne as spokesman, addressed the April 25 Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRD)  meeting and brought to the  board's attention the work the  group has been doing to ensure  that the area's environment will  riot deteriorate.  This action was prompted by  : a letter (a report of which appeared in the Coast News' last  issue) from the Kodaks, part-  time  residents  of. the  North  .Lake area.  *^' "We Ureiiere to balsutce^he^  equation," said Fearne. "The  letter   said   the   area   has  deteriorated because of logging,  mining   and   private   development. Well, we are the private  development. We are the permanent residents. We are your  constituents."  Fearne explained that the  group now cemented together as  the North Lake Ratepayers'  Association.(NLRA), has been  receiving co-operation from the  forestry department and from  private logging outfits. Strict  guidelinesJiave been laid down;  there is no skidder logging  allowed, all logging must be  high-line; all roads must be approved, and a green belt strip,  though not quite wide enough,  is still adequate.  "We all wish the logging  would take place elsewhere,"  said Fearn, "but that's not  realistic. As for mining, Chalice  Mining is insignificant. We have  no quarrel with them. They  have small drills and are not doing any damage.  "The Kodaks talk about  private development, and men  tion that no controls are being  exercised," he said. "Well, I  don't know how many inspectors, health, electrical, building,  have been up to inspect the properties leased. We've satisfied  all of them. There's only one  clear-cut piece and the original  permit on that has been cancelled.  "The Kodaks didn't do  enough leg-work," Fearne explained. "We want to know  why no second opinion was obtained. We've talked to lands,  parks arid housing, (LPH) and  L"they are doing an aerial survey;  We've told Webber (of LPH) to  land and speak with the  residents...  "The area isn't going to hell  in a hand basket. There's  nothing wrong with the drinking water; we drink it!" he said.  "We've done hours of work  seeing forestry and the mining  fellows...we'd have appreciated  a 'phone call, but we had to read  about this letter in the  newspaper."  Alternate Director Lawrenuk  responded by agreeing that  ecology is a concern of  everyone.  "We thank you for your  presentation. Now that we  know there is a North Lake  Ratepayers' Assocation we'll be  getting back to you."  Area B Director Peggy Connor made a final comment.  "We appreciate the fact that  you six gentlemen came down  to see us. It's good when  citizens do come forward and  bring these things to our attention."  The SCRD will forward  NLRA's letter to the provincial  ministry involved.  Contractor seeks reassurance  SCRD strikes committee  to study recycling costs  Dr Paul Gallaaher addressed a packed audience at Capilano College's Completion Ceremony which was  �� _le cXe's SocheU campus las. Wednesday. I. was the first time the ceremony had been held on  the Coast. (See story)  -Brad Benson photo  After discussions at a brief  Public Utilities Committee  meeting on April 18, it was  revealed that some costs are involved in the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) plan  to institute recycling on the Sunshine Coast, Said PUC chairman Jon McRae at an April 25  meeting of the PUC.  Reg Thomas, of Sunshine  Coast Disposal Services (SCDS)  was on hand to talk about those  costs and explain the company's  position.  "The costs of recycling are  primarily start-up costs," he  said. "Pick-up is the major  thing. This is a new ball-game  and we'll need new equipment.  "One problem is in analyzing  equipment," Thomas explained. "We are uncertain about  what happens after the trial  period."  Thomas sees labour costs as  an uncertain factor, along with  the number of participants in  the program. He would prefer  to operate on a five year contract, in order to minimise costs  of leasing equipment, although  the costs in the first year would  have to be flexible, due to the  many uncertainties.  Although extra labour costs  are possible it is not definite, according to Thomas. "There will  only be costs incurred if our  labour exceeds what is already  paid for. Our crews are already  paid to pick-up regular garbage,  labour costs will not rise.  "The only thing we don't  know about really is volume,"  he explained. "There will be no  more fuel, no more wear and  tear on tires, no more crew.  There'll be capital costs for new  equipment, but there mightn't  be any other."  A committee was struck to  gather further information and  formulate a plan for working  out initial costs. This committee  will include representatives  from SCDS, SCRD, the recycling committee and from Peninsula Recycling, the Gibsons  company which will be dealing  with the recyclables.  Bob Christ of Peninsula  Recycling, was also at the  meeting to answer questions  about recyclables.  "In the long run there is an  opportunity to meet costs and  possibly make a profit," He explained. "There are capital  costs involved, but what recycling does is create jobs. We'll  eventually have 10 people working.  "There is money in steel, and  ferrous metals, as well as in  newspaper. Glass does not sell  well at the moment, we get $50  a ton for steel.

School Trustees' Association must give us all pause.  School trustees have not been prone to resign their positions as a protest of government action. If anything,  school trustees have been too anxious to get along with the  pressure groups, whether teacher or government; too  aware of the importance of their charge to allow  themselves to be drawn into any conflict which might  adversely affect the young.  Bui this week in this province, in this school district,  trustees are resigning. Their statements, Page 17 of this  paper, speak for themselves.  Last week we had a conversation with a doctor who felt  that the government was behaving in a dangerously  totalitarian fashion. Defeated in a court case with the doctors, the government simply changed the law and now  claims what must surely be-the unconstitutional right to  legislate where people will live and work. We will hear  more of this dispute in the coming weeks and months.  The point here is not a partisan political one. If it is said  that this is a-government with dangerous totalitarian instincts it is not because we are supporting another political  party but because we are supporting democracy and the  respect of law.  The present provincial government has brought the province into chaos; it has been high-handed, unfeeling and  contemptuous of the citizens of this province. It believes it  will be able to buy power again in the next election���probably with borrowed money. We must prove it  wrong.  from the files of the COAST NEWS  5 YEARS AGO  Victor Walters and Leslie Brown are running for election to the Sechelt council.

Dianne Evans  ���  The loss of innocence  bv Dianne Kvans  It was 1968; the year that saw  the massive Tet Offensive  against Saigon, the year when  Richard Nixon entered the  White House and the age ol"  American innocence began its  rapid decline.  That year all over South East  Asia there were Americans;  small-town boys from,Iowa, big  city boys from New York, professional soldiers and those who  could not avoid the draft. They  were fighting in Vietnam, and in  Laos and Cambodia, although  it would be years before*the administration admitted to those ���  dirty corners of the war. r  And the country which acted c  as a jumping off point for those   '���  'conflicts'   (war   was   not   the^  word) was Thailand. The streets  of Bangkok were full of those  American'  boys   and   soldiers;  they   were  stationed   there  or  they arrived  for  five days of  lustful   annihilation   of   their  senses. Rest & recreation, they  called it. At any given time there  were perhaps 50,(XX) American  military  personnel  in  the city  and the fabric of the country  was lorn to shreds.  They were boys with eyes that  held no spark of life, no  tenderness; they were boys  whose souls stared back at you  on the street from dark places  where all the chances they ever  had for growing into their  dreams were gone.  More than I00,(XX) girls came  A Pender sadness  to Bangkok during the  'conflict'; girls from the country, girls who needed money for  the folks at home, girls who  ended up in the bars and seedy  hotels, girls who shared the  nightmares and sent the boys  back to the hills and paddies for  another round.  Thailand is a gentle country;  there are endless miles of lush  paddies with groves of trees between, and always the water buf-  I'alos working in the fields,  children flying kites from  villages of thatched huts. It is a  country where tradition and  morality are closely intertwined.  The Vietnam conflict took its  toll by uprooting the familiar  ways ol" life.  ' Udorn Thani, on the road to  Vientiane, used to be a small  village. When I arrived There in  1968 it had become the largest  air-force base in South East  Asia; all day and night, every 10  minutes, a B52 bomber took off  and headed towards the East  and Vietnam.  They returned somewhat less  often, but there was a touch of  the surreal when, over fried eggs  and hot chocolate.in the local  Chinese cafe, one could hear the  soldiers discussing their night's  work. It was all talk of bombs  and llight patterns and equipment that went wrong; it was  like talk at the local bar after a  shift at the mill, except that here  the object was death and  destruction.  There was a small bar in the  town; not very fancy, bamboo  tables, paper lanterns, and on  the back of the door a sign that  asked, "Have you got your  V.D. card?" in English and  Thai. The man who owned the  bar had been a 'lifer'; he had  fallen in love with v. Thai girl,  married her and left the Army.  He sat behind the bar and watched with a cynical eye as the  "boys' came in; they drank  without joy. they fought with  each other, or they cursed the  world and their wives, they  speculated endlessly about.life  back home, they were adrift in a  place which had no meaning for  them, and whose people  mystified them.  They lived in vast compounds, in Thai houses up on  stilts for the monsoon season;  they ate hamburgers and drank  Coke; they smoked the potent  local pot and drank the vile  local whisky or Philippine beer  and every shift they worked  they Hew to Vietnam and dropped bombs, or they helped to  get the aircraft off the ground.  The irony of it all was that  there were hundreds of Vietnamese working on the base;  some were even admirers of \lo  Chi Minh and you could occasionally see posters with his picture on walls in the Vietnamese  sector o\' the town.  What those people felt as  they watched the planes take off  nobody seemed to know, and  worse, nobody seemed to care.  Once in a while a 'Vict  Conn  would infiltrate and blow up a  plane on the base or steal some  weapons, but in Udorn Thani  the war, the devastation, was  remote.  This month, it is ten years  since Saigon fell to the North  Vietnamese and the Americans  left Vietnam. There was a price  to pay for that war; many  veterans have found it impossible to settle into normal life  again; tens of thousands died,  and left behind their wives and  sisters, parents and friends.  Now we march for peace, for  an end to the arms race; now we  are laced with annihilation and  ending thai must be our priori-.���..  tv. .������.,.,.      - Vi^i*  ' But there are almost 'fifty  other wars raging across the  face of the earth today. There  are other hoys with their souls  in dark places and their  sweethearts waiting at home.  There are still warmongers and  weapons dealers who thrive on  it all; they are in Canada this  week, selling the government  more hardware to make the  next war even more efficient.  I wish that those traders in  death could have walked oil the  streets of Udorn and seen the  boys they want so much to arm;  sometimes, at the bottom of a  bottle o\' Jack Daniels they'd  cry, sometimes they wanted to  but couldn't find the tears  because the war had taken them  away. That's what war is all  about; the los> of innocence and  destruction of the human spirit.  Take care of yourselves  bv Jane McOuai  Item: A 17-year old Pender  Harbour youth, Tiffy Reid, is  found dead at the location  where he passed out after what  had apparently been a drinking  party.  However, I felt that a lack of  cognizance on everyone's part  was the cause of death.  I phoned Fran Burnside and  ranted and raved and poured  out my heart to her. I urged her  to contact Reverend Tim Shap-  cotte, who delivered a hard line  but deeply caring eulogy at  Tiff's funeral.  Fran said, as she often will,  "Jane, I think you have the  feelings about this. If we were  to do it, it would be an  outsider's report, but it sounds  like something both tragic and  of great importance has happened up in Pender. So you  write about it."  I'll try, because it's too important to let go by, and if only  one more person, adult or  teenager, looks one more time  at their habits and feelings one  week after the immediate .pain  has subsided, then this will be  worthwhile.  I arrived back up in the Harbour on a Saturday. I am so  glad to be home. School is  tough but I have loved it and  done well. Now I want to  garden to my heart's content.  I say "hello" to all sorts of  foiks that I've missed and then I  see David. He looks bad.  I saw "You having a hard  day?".'  "Yah, I guess so," he replies.  He suddenly looks worse. I  know of Tiffy's death but it has  not hit my heart yet.  "Is if Tiff?" His chin  trembles to keep control and I  struggle not to hug him and let  hini cry. There's too much in  the way. People are watching  and it's crowded.  In our society you don't hug  teenagers when they are upset.  It's only okay if there's no one  else there to see them be the little children that they (and we as  adults) still are.  So Dave says stoically (after a  deep breath), "I'm gonna go  fishing and do some thinking."  We pari, with me wondering  what Dave is going to think  about? Does he have the proper  information to think with?  Does he realize that he and  the other kids are products of  their environment and that  almost all their actions are a  result of "monkey see, monkey  do" from their parents?  To be sure, there are real individuals inside the kids (and all  of us!), but we greatly pattern  after the way we see those that  we love and/or admire act.  Most of the time this is the  pattern,  but  when you notice  two friends with the same verbal  comebacks or the same laugh  then it falls into place.  They like that person and  want to be like them to show  their admiration or possibly so  they can be as cool, as popular,  as tough, or as sensitive, as caring, as thoughtful and as much  fun.  There is a choice in which  standards we hold as valuable  and important to us. The  choice, however, is up to each  individual.  If an adult makes a change in  his/her life, the kids notice it  and are deeply affected by it.  You cannot tell kids (or adults)  to make a change, but you can  effect a change by your own example.  I was in Madeira Park on  Wednesday afternoon and in all  the time I've been here I've  never seen a gloomier place.  I looked over at the grounds  of the Community Hall and  there sat almost the whole high  school.. All wailing for the  TIME which they could hardly  fathom; far away eyes and tense  shuffling bodies.  As I looked at them it seemed  as if they were all babies. Who  can answer these questions for  them?  Where has Tiffy gone? Is  there anything there? Is he  okay?    Is    he    nothing    or  something now? Why did this  happen?  He really won't be here  tomorrow, right? This is not a  dream? Was he alone in doing  this to himself?  How could he go out of control and not know? How can we  help each other to not let this  happen again?  Right now, while feelings are  so close lo the surface those  kids need expert help. As a  school they need their  counsellors as they've never,  needed them before. They need  the best our district can muster.  Fly 'em in!  Together they need to begin  picking apart the intricate pieces  of this tragic puzzle so thai they  can see what is going on in their  own homes.  Most importantly, so that  they can see that even if  something isn't right at home  (and docs anyone have a perfect  home?) they can still choose to  begin taking more charge of  their own lives. Now.  For the parents? There's a big  job ahead. But we arc all those  same kids inside. We all learned  our behaviours too. It's now a  time to try something different;  to take a chance by looking at  your family relationships.

The Lynnwood Sewer System  or the Wakefield plant in West  Sechelt was put in place by the  developers of a sub-division on  Mason Road. Without this  package treatment plant it  would have been impossible to  build on the quarter acre lots  due to public health regulations.  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District was asked to take over  the maintenance of the plant  two years ago; at that time it  needed costly repairs done.  Sewers, whether they are  operated by a big plant, or  ' packaged plant or the plain old  septic tank are user pay.  It has been stated on several  occasions that the regional  district has no option but to  charge costs attributable to a  specified area to that specified  area. The Municipal Act is very  clear on that point and any at-,  tempt to do otherwise would be  thwarted by the regional district  auditors.  It was at the request of a  spokesman for the Lynnwood  Court users, at a public  meeting, that Dayton and  Knight was hired to prepare the  tender; there was doubt expressed as to the works superintendent's objectivity in the matter.

Continuing  Education and Capilano College have in the past put on  courses and workshops in  English as a Second Language;  but it is always difficult to reach  the people who are most in  need, as many of them cannot  read the posters or brochures  announcing the course.  So Continuing Education is  currently trying to identify the  people who might like help, and  to contact them to find out what  their needs are. Some may  speak almost no English; some  may need to improve their pronunciation, or to increase their  vocabulary. We would like to  determine what would best fit  their needs���language courses,  conversation   classes,   tutorial  Outreach programs  Editor:  British Columbia's Emily  Carr College of Art and Design  Outreach Programs will sponsor two-day art workshops in  the Gibsons area next fall and  winter. We seek input from  residents to help determine subjects of local interest.  Adult workshops in painting,  sculpture, printmaking,  photography and other visual  arts are available. We have  outstanding artist-teachers  across Canada eager to share  professional expertise with  groups of 12 or more���those  just starting out and people  wanting stimulation of new  ideas. What's needed are  workshop requests from individuals or groups in Gibsons.

If you as the users are upset  at the futility of this exercise  may it be suggested that your  displeasure be directed toward  the contractor who assured  them that he could do the  maintenance cheaper and then  did not bother to submit a bid.  During the recent review of  this regional district by Dan  Campbell of the ministry of  municipal affairs, considerable  attention was given to the cost  of maintaining package sewer  plants.  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District costs are amongst the  lowest in the province, to the  point that the details of our  operating costs are being used in  the preparation of a paper to be  given at an upcoming seminar  on the efficient operation of  package sewer plants.

Dear Sir:  Re: Commuting connection between B.C. Ferry from Langdale  and the Horseshoe Bay, West  Vancouver fast bus to  downtown Vancouver.  The 6:20 a.m. sailing from  Langdale arrives at Horeshoe  Bay at about 7 a.m., the West  Vancouver fast bus departs at  6:58 a.m. for downtown Vancouver.  Sometimes the commuters  are running from the ferry just  to see the fast bus pull away.  Could there be a 5 min. adjustment in either scheduling to  make this connection possible?  (or 2'/2 min. each?).  In keeping with Expo '86  focusing on transportation, I  hope something could be done  to achieve a better connection  for our commuters.  Sergei Jankowskii  Sechelt, B.C.

Safety  The Skoda GLS 5-speed, and all other  Skoda cars were designed with safety in  mind. Our engineers have placed the gasoline  tank ahead of the rear axle for added  protection in the event of a rear end  collision, but if you're in a frontal collision,  isn't it reassuring to know you're well  protected?

It's always a  mellow summer day down by  the mouth of the Creek with a  variety of activities ranging  from sandcastle building to the  outrageous Mr. Roberts Creek  contest.  It takes a lot of work and the  Hall Committee is looking for  help from everybody in the  community. The object is fun  but it can be a money-making  proposition as well.  Groups and individuals are  urged to come up with some  new ideas that will contribute to  the spirit of the Daze. There's  an organizational meeting at the  Community Hall this Wednesday, May 1, at 7:30 p.m.  Come with your brainstorms  or just if you want to be part of  the Daze. Incidentally, Roberts  Creek Daze is set for Saturday,  July 20, this year.  RAFFLE WINNERS  Apologies to the Rainbow  Pre-School for the delay in  printing the list of winners in  their raffle.

PROPANE INSPECTION  Members of the Roberts  Creek Volunteer Fire Department met with two natural gas  and propane inspectors from  the provincial safety engineering  branch last week.  The government inspectors  have more clout than the fire  marshall did and they told the  firemen there was some much-  needed work being done on the  propane tanks at Roberts Creek  wharf.

Dogfish  * A commercial fisherman tells  us that he went dogfish, that is  salmon shark,, fishing this  month in the Queen Charlotte  Sound as much to give his new  boat a shake-down cruise as to  get a payload of fish.  "At 12 cents a pound at the  buyers, it's not that great a  payload," he said, "and halibut  would give a far higher return."  He went on to say that there  is a filleting plant in Abbotsford  which probably exports to  Europe. "I met a tourist from  Germany this past summer," he  said, "who told me he paid the  equivalent of $6.50 a pound for  smoked dogfish at home.  Delightful eating too, he said.  We may be missing a good taste  but it's hard to see that when  you haul one of those high-  smelling creatures aboard."  When asked why he went so  far for his catch, he said, "The  dogfish in the strait are too  small, and the buyers will only  give their price for fish of 32 inches and more. Oh, they'll take  some a-iittle smaller at a lower  price.  "We use the long line and  herring bait���at 35 cents a  pound. Another reason for  looking for the bigger dogfish."  CLASS REUNION  On May 18 and 19 there will  be a reunion of the class of 1960  Skookum  of Elphinstone secondary. Dinner at the Casa Martinez on the  Saturday, and a barbeque the  next day at the Porpoise Bay  campsite.  The committee extends a  welcome to all those who attended Elphie in the years just  prior to 1960. "We look forward to seeing former schoolmates," says a committee  member, "and we would appreciate hearing of any former  student that we may not have  got in touch with."  Some of the committee  members are: Sylvia Bingley,  886-7481; Sharon Ellis,  885-2861; Steve Holland,  886-2673.  GIBSONS LIBRARY  The Gibsons library marked  National Book Festival with a  week-long display of Canadian  publications, April 30 to 20.  "On Friday and Saturday of  that week," says Pam Feicht-  ner, librarian, "we raffled book  purchase vouchers to members,  and also held a book sale and  membership drive on Friday in  the Sunnycrest Mall."  Winner of the adult voucher  was Elsie Carbert of Gibsons,  and of the children's, Sarah  Mundell and Sandy Johnston.  Steve White, a Librarv  Association director, told us,  "We sell books that just aren't  circulating and use the money to  buy new. This helps us keep up  to date with people's interests  and add new titles in both fiction and non-fiction sections, as  well as our children's library."  Steve says that the book sales  are held twice a year and the  association, all volunteers, find  them a good reminder to the  public of the library service in  their town and district.

Young humans are  amazingly perceptive.  Something a lot of people are  trying is to just limit drinking to  the weekends.

There are doctors  to refer you to the right people  for help - and it takes more  courage to beat it than stay in it.  I do want to mention Jane,  Malcolm and Tim (Shapcotte).  It took a lot of courage to let  that funeral be the heartbreaking lesson that it was. The  strong words were full of care  for everyone who is left.  Is there a way to let the kids  know that they are deeply loved  and cherished? And it isn't  enough to just have other people care for you.

Following the ex-  cape   plan   your   family   has  previously arranged, you all run  to the nearest neighbour, and  call 883-2345. No matter what  time of day or night, someone  answers by the second ring, and  in a matter of seconds the siren  is    sounding,    calling    the  volunteer firefighters to action.  Within four minutes the truck is  on its way. Another family is  safe, and the fire soon under  control.  April's Pender.People are the  six ladies on the end of that fire  phone. They wish to remain  anonymous, but the work they  do saves Pender residents  thousands of dollars, and gives  us one of the best fire alarm  systems for a volunteer force.  On duty 24 hours a day,  seven days a week, these women  answer 400 calls a year.  Sometimes a call comes through  for ambulance or inhalator. The  caller is assisted either by giving  the correct number (885-5191)  or by calling for them, depending on the situation.  Fire phone volunteers now  have portable phones, which  enable them to go out to the  garden or downstairs. Otherwise, they sign off for the 20  minutes it takes to go to.the  store, or for a holiday period.

Sinclair Bay Road   883-2722  Ron Murdoch  FIRE MARSHALL  TELEPHONE MANNERS  A rather sobering fact is that  of the 400 calls to the fire  phone, 85 percent are nuisance  calls, pure and simple. Rarely  are these calls from teens: it's  little children playing on the  dial, or older school age kids  fooling around.  Parents: alert your children  to the seriousness of that  number. Watch the little ones  around the phone more carefully.  BABYSITTER  PREPARATION  A group of young people  who know how to call emergency numbers correctly are the  newly-trained babysitters-to-be  from Madeira Park elementary.  These boys and girls completed five hours of training and  passed a test with over 80 percent.

They gathered there to  honour Adele deLange who is  cutting down on her activities.  Adele has been a tireless  longtime worker for the library  and will certainly be missed.  They had to spread her jobs out  to several people to fill the gap.  A beautiful rhododendron  with a box of nourishment to  keep it healthy and a willing  helper to plant it in her garden  for her was presented to Adele  by Marie on behalf of her coworkers.  A delicious cake in the form  of an open book and letter from  board chairman Art McPhee  were handed over by vice-  chairman Marianne Dallman,  and a letter of appreciation  from the Sunshine Coast  Regional District library  representative Peggy Connor  was received.

Why it is a "secret" we don't know���it has been proclaimed  and used for over 50 years in Canada. It's called a Monthly  Withdrawal P|an. Here is what the past has shown: A person  who had $100,000 in Ternpleton Growth Fund on January 1.  1964 and started a 1% per month withdrawal of $1,000, (12%  per year) would have received $252,000.00 in monthly  payments by December 31, 1984. (Mortgages were paying only  7% in 1961).  However, instead of having just the original $100,000 left, the*  value remaining in the fund is now $865,896.35. Furthermore,  that $252,000.00 "income" would bear about one quarter or  less tax liability than an equivalent income earned from interest or annuities.  With that $856,896.35 which is left you could withdraw 1% per  month ($8,568.00 monthly or $102,816.00 annually) to keep  pace with inflation. How's that for "having your cake and  eating it too"?

I hate the way the grass grows. I hate the way the weeds  sprout upwards. I can't stand the way the sun reveals  the cobwebs and the streaks on the window panes. And  every time the sun shines 1 feel duty bound to rush out to  the great outdoors to attempt to tame the wild  undergrowth. So after some days of rushing out to clean  up, then rushing in to clean up I decided as it got colder  and wetter that I deserved to have a break from Spring. I  sat sipping coffee and watching the morning movie and  persuaded the Great Provider to go to the store. I gave  him a list���as always���but it was a bit vague. When he  returned I roused myself from my torpor and examined  the pickings. "Cauliflower!" I shrieked. He said we  hadn't had it for ages and I showed him the price tag and  he said, "Well, we'd better have it cooked in a thousand  different ways.'.' So we did!  Cauliflower Salad  approximately IV2 cups cauliflower flowerets  small tin anchovies  Vz cup chopped olives  2 tablespoons chopped parsley  2 tablespoons olive oil  1 tablespoon red wine vinegar  salt and pepper ���  1. Steam cauliflower for 5 minutes. Rinse under cold  water and drain.  2. Mix all ingredients. Chill well and serve.  Herbed Cauliflower  2 cups, approx. cauliflower flowerets  Vz teaspoon salt  2 tablespoons butter  1 tablespoon lemon juice  2 tablespoons chopped parsley  2 tablespoons chopped chives, or green onion  Vz teaspoon chopped rosemary  1. Steam cauliflower for 10 minutes. Drain.  2. Saute gently in melted butter and lemon juice for 10  minutes.  3. Add parsley, chives & rosemary. Stir for a couple of  minutes and serve immediately.  Cauliflower and Almonds  2 cups, approx. cauliflower flowerets  2 tablespoons slivered almonds  2 tablespoons butter  salt and pepper  1. Steam the cauliflower for 15 minutes. Drain. Keep  warm.  2. Melt butter and saute almonds for 5 minutes.  3. Add salt and pepper. Pour over cauliflower and serve  immediately.  It's rather nice having someone else do the shopping.  A little extravagance in one's life can make one tackle  Spring with so much more viqour. Watch out you, wimpy  weeds!   . iM^P^^^l.

McQuat decided to take  a chance on this persuasive man  with his boundless energy and  enthusiasm and his total lack of  proper   credentials.  Ontario archivist Donald McQuat was not to regret his decision to hire Hugh MacMillan.  In the years since his unique job  was created, Hugh MacMillan  has brought an enormous  amount of invaluable and  hitherto-unknown data into the  possession of the archives.  MacMillan's success at  unearthing rare documents in  obscure places can be attributed  to several things. One is his  sheer tenacity - his refusal to  give up on a lead until every  avenue of investigation has been  exhausted. Another is his gift of  gab - for often only sheer charm  can pry a reluctant descendant  free from great-grandfather's  letters. An excellent memory for  arcane dates and facts is one of  Hugh's assets too. But perhaps,  . most important of all is Hugh's  unflagging enthusiasm for playing the sleuth. He is a man who  truly loves his work.  Hugh MacMillan's work  keeps him on constant travel  junkets, back and forth across  Canada and into the United  States. When not on the road;  he works out of his book-  cluttered office in the Ontario  archives building, smoking his  pipe furiously, reading and  answering letters, making one  phone-call after another.  In the more than 20 years  since Hugh embarked on his  curious career, he has come up  with many remarkable finds.  His first major jackpot was the  private cache of a parish priest,  Monsignor Ewen J. Mac-  Donald. MacDonald, a sort of  ecclesiastical pack-rat, had  spent six decades assembling the  largest private manuscript collection in Glengarry County.  This priceless store of material  dated back to the 1770's and  contained many rate items dealing with county history and the  fur trade. The acquisition was!  not an easy one - it tdok Hugh''  10 years to convince the old '  priest that he should part wiih  his treasures for the sake* of  posterity.  It is no surprise that MacMillan has encountered more i  than his share of eccentrics over I  the years. Perhaps the most fervent book-fiend he ever met is a  man in southern Ontario who  has stuffed his house to bursting  point with more than 80,000  Canadiana volumes. It is scarcely possible to get into the house  for books. The man once had a  wife when he began stacking  musty tomes both under and on  the marriage bed, the distraught  woman made an ultimatum - it  was either her or'��� them. The  crazed bibliophile blithely opted  for his collection.  for the  Yellow Pages Section  of the  Sunshine Coast  Telephone Directory  This is your last chance to check out your  Yellow Pages listing.

Good for business.  yellow pages  No detective can operate  without informants and MacMillan has a veritable network  of them scattered around the  country. Borden Cook, an antiquarian who deals in rare books  and manuscripts from his Old  Author's Farm in Morrisburg,  Ontario, is one of Hugh's prime  sources. Among the prizes MacMillan has acquired through or  from Cook, are the letters of Sir  Stanford Fleming, builder of  the Canadian Pacific Railway  and an 1831 map of the Rideau  Canal, drawn by its chief  engineer, Captain John Bly.  MacMillan's insatiable quest  for the days that were extends  far beyond this job. It  dominates all aspects of his life.  The house he and his family life  in, 75 kilometres west of Toronto, resembles nothing so much  as a factor's post of the fur  trading days, somehow plucked  from the past. It was built by  Hugh and his sons in 1972 from  hand-hewn pine logs, salvaged  from abandoned barns. It is an  enclave of yesterday, filled with  artifacts of other times. Stored  on the property are two  authentc Nor'wester-type  canoes from the long-gone heyday of the brigades.  These canoes are wholly  functional. In 1967, MacMillan  and a group of fellow history  buffs formed an historical  canoeing club and, clad in  authentic costumes, took to  criss-crossing Canada once a  year, following the same routes  as the fur traders once used.  Hugh still makes these colourful  odysseys whenever his work  schedule permits.  Hugh MacMillan would be  the last to deny the fact that he  is what is sometimes termed a  "professional Scotsman". Like  Farley Mowatt whom he  resembles in some respects,  Hugh sometimes affects a kilt  and is honestly proud of his  heritage. For the past three  years, he and historian Ted  Dowan have been conducting  guided tours to the old country  for fellow oatmeal savages in  search of their roots.  Hugh, in company with  writer Frank Rasky, is presently  working on a book entitled,- appropriately enough, The  History Detective. It is partially  auto-biographical and partially  a collection of the most  fascinating stories he has unearthed over the years.  At 60 years of age, the  peripatetic MacMillan shows no  signs of slowing down. Recently, Yvonne and I had the  pleasure of Hugh's company  for a couple of days. It was a  very stimulating visit. Hugh  MacMillan, the History Detective is about as entertaining a  houseguest as you could wish  for. He is quite a guy.

Another highlight of the trip  was the fact that Tor Orre of  Redrooffs earned a gold medal  in his class for slalom. No, Tor  was not in the disabled group  and was in fact competing  against people of half his age,  so we were all very proud of  him.  MORK AWARDS  I was happy to hear that a  couple of Halfmoon Bay gals  do so well at the drama festival  in North Van last week. Deirdre  Hartwell received an award for  a cameo role and Ronnie Dunn  got honourable mention for  their parts in Gordon Wilson's  play "Blue Cheese and Jazz".  There was also an award for the  set. Having seen this play I  would like to highly recommend  that you make a point of going  to see it if it should be presented  again locally. It was just great.  DATES TO NOTE  On Tuesday, April 30 there  will be a wee Halfmoon Bay  Brownie calling at your door  with Girl Guide cookies for  sale. Do give them your support  and buy a box of cookies.  Saturday, May 4 is the day  that you are invited to tea at  Welcome Beach Hall where the  ladi'es off the Halfmoon Bay  branch of the hospital auxiliary  will be happy to treat you to  afternoon tea from 2 till 4.  A reminder too that the auxiliary monthly meeting will be  on Mondav morning Mav 6 at  10 a.m.  WELCOME BEACH NEWS  The card party held at the  hall turned out to be a most successful and enjoyable evening  for those who attended. So  much so that it is most likely  that there will be another such  event in the fall. Special thanks  are due to the two ladies who  did such.a fine job of convening  the affair, namely Grace La-  inont and Mildred Chuck rev.  Vjdiir ���'efforts were really appreciated.  The Wednesday of May 29 is  the date set  for the Welcome  Beach Annual Luncheon, and  there will be more on this later.  Another  date   to   mark  on  your calendar is Tuesday, June  4 which is the evening of the  Welcome   Beach   Community  Association   Annual   General  meeting.  There are vacancies  for two  new  board  members  and for a secretary and a vice-  president. It is hoped that there  will be a really good turnout for  this meeting as there are some  important decisions to be made  an input from members is essential. I shall be reminding you of  this date again.

Coast News, April 29,1985  On Aquaculture  Rolier skating underway!  Mayor Joyce Kolibas and Alderman Craig were at the arena on Saturday to take part in ribbon-cutting'  ceremonies at the opening of the skating season. Here the mayor and Alderman Craig are joined by Area  B Director Peggy Connor, arena manager Vicki Speck, and Alderman Anne Pressley. Alderman Craig  was definitely in the swing of things, showing his fine roller skating style with a large crowd of young and  Old. ���Dianne Kvans photo  Will the new industry help  small business? Again, the  answer must be no. Brad Hope,  whose Tidal Rush Marine  Farms at Nelson Island is one of  the most advanced farms in  British Columbia, has recently  fended off takeover offers from  a joint venture of Rockefeller  interests and a British food  multinational. Hope has integrated vertically with a small  Canadian firm. Norway's oldest  farm operation has been taken  over by the national hydroelectric company. And the news  that Weston's BC Packers has  decided to produce fish feed for  the new industry indicates that  George -Weston Co., one of  Canada's largest conglomerates, will have a major  say in its future.  Already it is clear the  aquaculture industry is falling  into the hands of big business,  but this has not subdued the  calls for massive subsidies,  which Griffioen summarizes as  "a lot of provincial and federal  aid... through policy changes  and through educational,  technical, financial and research  support."

COWRIE STREET, SECHELT 885-5858  mercial fishing interests are  recipients of major tax subsidies  and in no position to criticize  others queuing at the trough.  With respect, I would point out  that the British Columbia commercial fishery, notwithstanding its many difficulties,  returns an average of $450  million a year to the Canadian  economy in wholesale value.  This return is generated by a  total government expenditure,  including $34 million for  salmonid enhancement, of  about $100 million. The commercial industry alone employs  more than 10,000 people.  (I should add that Mr. Heal  correctly differentiated between  his field of oyster farming���with which commercial  fishermen have no quarrel���and the current boom in  aquaculture of fin-fish.)  But who will benefit from the  substantial subsidies, including  tax breaks, sought by the  aquaculture industry? The  British Columbia Science Council and the Science Council of  Canada have concluded that  uncontrolled salmon farming  poses significant genetic and  disease risks to wild stocks.  Large pieces of foreshore arid  fresh water supplies will be  alienated to farm use. Existing  markets for fresh and frozen  salmon face disruption.  Most importantly, federal  law would have to be changed  to abolish the common property  ownership of fish that has existed since the Magna Carta and  to establish private property  rights in fish. The right of any  Canadian to harvest fish surplus  to conservation needs would be  ���abolished and private individuals would own the stocks.  Space will not permit a full  exploration or mis issue, wnich  touches  every  Canadian  who  has ever considered nshing for  salmon or any other product of  our seas. Norway's experience is  no guide here���their wild stocks  are extinct to all intents and  purposes.   With   the   Science  Council of Canada now  pushing for ocean ranching���the release of farmed,  fish to browse in the ocean���the  stage has been set for the kind  of development which has  devastated the Oregon coast.  Paranoia? Fear-mongering? I  don't think so. The demand for  chinook eggs from public stocks  to fuel the' existing farms has  already outstripped supply.  Atlantic salmon eggs are being  imported to this coast without  any review of the possible consequences. Under the circumstances, a moratorium on  the issuing of aquaculture  licences seems the only responsible course to take.  In the meantime, the  UFAWU, the labour movement  and your own Solidarity Coalition on the Sunshine Coast have  proposed a series of immediate  and low-cost measures that  would create jobs now for  British Columbians. One is investment in Phase Two of the  Salmonid Enhancement Program with emphasis on small  stream improvement. The program has already returned $1.40  for every dollar invested in the  first phase and can be carried  out with no risk of stock  destruction or disruption of  other industries.  Another immediate benefit  could be achieved by banning  the export of thousands of tonnes of unprocessed ground fish  to the United States every year.  This fish can be processed  economically in British Columbia and could provide jobs  coastwide.  In the UFAWU's view,  aquaculture holds some promise  but also a great degree of peril.  On balance, we believe a  moratorium on new licences until these concerns have been  resolved is simple common  sense. The aquaculturalists,  after all, are only risking  money. We are risking  Canada's wild salmon  stocks���fish that belong to our  children's children, not to us.  Some of the graduates of the recent six hour babysitting course held  al Roberts Creek elementary school are pictured here. "They were  all greal students and passed (he exam with excellent marks," said  instructor Sue Shepherd, who joined Ihe girls for the picture.

"Tis the human touch  in this world that counts./The  touch of your hand and mine,/  Which means far more to the  fainting heart/Than shelter and  bread and wine;/For shelter is  gone when the night is o'er,/And  bread lasts only a day, /But the  touch of the hand and the sound  of the voice/Sing on in the soul  always.  Spencer Michael Free.  Sadly missed by Leonard and.  Michael. #17  Thank You  I, Dorthea Fosdal, wish to extend  my sincere thanks to friends for  flowers, cards and donations  tendered following my husband's  death. A special thanks to the  nurses and staff of St. Mary's ex-'  tended care unit and to Dr. Berlin  for all his kindness. #17  We wish to thank our many  relatives and friends who helped  us have such an enjoyable day on  our 50th Wedding Anniversary.

I do not  think I have made many decisions in my life as profoundly  difficult as this one, and I hope  you will understand my reasons.  When I first ran as a trustee  in November 1981, I was  humbled by the confidence you  expressed in me and I was determined to represent your views  and opinions at the local and  provincial   level.   And   even  though the years were fraught  with controversy over restraint  and diminishing financial  resources, I clung to the belief  that I still had a meaningfull  responsibility to discharge on  your behalf. I was determined  to achieve the 'best deal' for  public education possible,  within the limits of our failing  economy. I continued to think  of myself as a realist rather than  a reactionary.  Today however, I believe the  government of the province of  British Columbia has virtually  transformed school boards  from conscientious, elected  representatives of their constituents, to redundant puppets of  the ministry of education.  In my opinion, the government has usurped entirely any  meaningful authority which,  once was exercised by a school  board. We have been recently  forced to adopt a budget whose  ceiling was established by Victoria. We were told the  minimum number of teachers  we must employ to avoid  economic sanctions.  And at the same time school  boards were given the ever  changing rules for salary  negotiations with teachers, the  ministry issued press releases  stating there would be no  money provided for teacher  salary increases in "the the pro-  Illusion of democracy  Without authority  by Donald Fairweather  I tendered my resignation to  the School Board effective May  14, 1985 on Thursday, April 25,  1985. For the following reasons,  I felt this was the only useful action I could take:  1. Having agonized for months through meeting after  meeting, the Board eventually  passed budgets in compliance  with ministry directives. These  directives mandate, in my opinion, the eventual demolition of  the school system in this district  as we know it. This direction  has been taken in the name of  "restraint".   I  opposed  compliance with this process.  2. Teacher morale in the  system has been dangerously  eroded by a calculated  framework . for bargaining  which makes any negotiation  impossible for either party. The  inevitable result is the destruction of the relationship between  trustees and teachers and a  reduction of teacher motivation  and effectiveness.  3. Having budgeted for less  than the students' needs by  government directive, the same  government required by law  that we then enact a taxing by-  INVITATION TO TENDER  Sealed tenders for the visitor services of Skookumchuck Narrows Marine Park, Egmont, B.C. will be received by the Ministry  of Lands, Parks and Housing up to 12:00 o'clock(noon) May  23rd, 1985 and opened in public at that time at Porpoise Bay  Park, Sechelt, B.C. VON 3A0:  Contract documents may be obtained from the area supervisor, Porpoise Bay Park, telephone number 885-9019. A security guarantee is required in the sum of 10% of contract quote.  No tenders shall be considered having any qualifying clauses  whatsoever and the lowest or any tenders will not necessarily  be accepted.  It is compulsory to attend a tour of the Park with parks staff on  May 15th, 1985, 2:00 p.m. Meet at Egmont Parking lot. Bids will  not be accepted by anyone not attending the tour.  Bern  Ministry of Lands,  Parks & Housing  Honorable Anthony J. Brummet, Minister  Signed:  Province of  British Columbia  law to provide the local percentage of funding. Without consultation or notice, the percentage of the operating budget  funded by the government was  reduced by five percent. The  result is that we now pay more  for less.  4. In light of the above, I have  come to the conclusion that the  Board of Trustees performs no  valid function (as we must simply rubber-stamp high handed  and tyrannical government  policy) but rather performs a  dysfunction (we obscure the  fact that the confrontation  should be between students,  teachers, parents and taxpayers  versus the government). We  provide the illusion of a local  democratic body but have no  legal authority.  5. When trustees no longer  have any say in what local taxpayers shall spend on education, or on how much they  should pay, and very little say in  how we shall spend our educational dollar in the design of our  systems, I believe it is a disservice to the public to continue to  promote an illusion, by serving  as trustee, that we do have any  local decision making power.  In brief, I cannot as a trustee,  be part of a process that gives  the pupils less and charges the  taxpayers more without protesting. Both education and  democracy in this province are  in great peril. The only thing I  can do is to resign.  vincial budget. Here, I neither  imply agreement or disagreement with the issue of salary increases, only that an absurdly  futile procedure, i.e. salary  negotiations under those constraints, should be recognized  for what it is���a farce.  1 can't pretend at representing you any longer, because to  continue allows our provincial  government to use this and  other school boards as a vehicle  by which it can implement or  force its will, and obscure its  responsibility. I believe in accepting the consequences for  some thing for which I have  been responsible, but.I will not  be the government's bully boy  or scapegoat.  . Although the foregoing caused my frustration, the following  caused my resignation: Under  law, a school board is required  to adopt annually, on or before  May 1, a by-law which  establishes tax rates. Traditionally, funding for a school  district's operating budget has  been according to a sharing  ratio where the ministry has  proudly proclaimed they have  paid a minimum of 60 percent,  leaving a maximum of 40 percent left for residential property  taxpayers to pick up. The  ministry pay their percentage  from general revenue (resource  royalties, social sales tax and  other property tax etc.).  Over the past three or four  years, public educational programs and services have been  significantly reduced, largely  because, according to the province, the economy has experienced lean yars. Whatever  the reason, public education has  been getting less money to  operate.  On Tuesday April 23, 1985,  . your trustees were notified  without forewarning or explanation, that the traditional  sharing ratio had been changed,  whereby residential property  owners were required to pay 45  percent of school district  operating expenses���an increase  of 5 percent which will amount  to an extra two mils on each of  our property taxes this coming  year. Without even the courtesy  of speaking to us or to you  about it, we are going to pay  ! more school tax for less service,  by edict of the present government.  .1 could not vote against the  adoption of the ministry  ordered by-law, not so much for  the money it represented, rather  because of an  incredible  ar  rogance espoused by a govern- j  ment with a loaded gun in its i  hand, and whose foremost tenet !  in   leadership   is   apparently :  ���Might is Right'.  Chairman charges  no warning  by Janice Edmonds  The minister of education has  shifted more of the costs of  education onto local residential  taxpayers. Information received  by the ministry on Tuesday,  April 23, revealed, on analysis,,  that whereas for the past two  years we have paid a basic 40  per cent of the operating costs  of the schools from local  residential taxes, this year we  pay a basic 45 per cent. The  provincial share correspondingly drops from 60 per cent to 55  per cent.  So, despite a budget which is  $191,980 less than it was in  1984, the local taxpayers will  have to raise $91,686 . more.  That's not much of a bargain. .  Putting it another way, if the  formula had not been changed  by the government, our local  taxes would have been $168,478  less than they are going to be.  That extra cost will add .1958 to  the tax rate, or about $20.to.the  taxes of a home and property  worth $100,000. The impact  would haye been much greater  had it not been for a phasing-in  grant. The potential cost of this  change is actually about  $488,000, which would increase  the tax rate by .568 and add  acout $57 to the taxes on a  $100,000 home.  One of the reasons given by  the government for restraint in  education is, or was, toprotect  taxpayers against increasing  educational costs. This seems an  odd way of doing it. The reason  for the change has not been announced, indeed the change was  not announced, it just appeared  in the taxation calculations.

Chamber launches  membership drive  by Brad Benson  The Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce has,  this month, initiated a membership drive in an effort to rebuild  their membership rolls which  have been devastated by the  recession.  Falling from a high of 273  members in 1980-81, membership plummeted to a low of 39  last year. The effect has been to  seriously restrict the chamber's  ability to carry out the tourist  and business information services it is set up to provide in the  area.  Though the personal involvement of individuals and companies in the activities of the  chamber is critical, the most in-  portant reason for the membership drive at this time is financial.  In addition to the funds raised from memberships, which  range from an annual fee of $25  for an individual up to $400 for  a company with over 50  employees, the provincial government's department of industry and small business  development provides grants  based on the number of  memberships in the chamber.  At a level of under 100  members, the Gibsons Chamber  of Commerce qualifies for a  Crime Stoppers  grant of $750 per quarter. If  membership reaches 100, the  grant increases to $1,000 per  quarter; and at a level over 125,  the quarterly grant increases  another $250.  Verna Sim, the chamber's  manager, stated that if their  drive is successul enough to increase the grant, the extra funds  will primarily be used to staff  their information booth for a  full working day each day instead of the four hour period  (from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.) it can  now afford.  Help is also being requested  from the provincial government's Challenge 85 program,  to which the chamber' has applied in order to hire five summer students.  They will be used to provide  tourist information on the ferries, and help man the Gibsons  information booth 12 hours a  day, seven days a week during  the summer.  The membership drive has  had an effect, with the rolls, as  of .last week, standing at 56.  Pennisula Typewriter Service,  Pippy's, Green Scene, and Gibsons Marina have been the latest  to join. Those interest in coming on board should contact  Verna Sim at the chamber of  commerce office at 886-2325.  Crime of the Week  In the early hours of Sunday,  September 25, 1983, someone  broke into the Madeira Park  Legion. Using a pry bar the  burglars forced open the two  front doors. Once inside the entrance way a window leading into the bar area was smashed.  Crawling over the counter,  the thieves removed some  money from the cash register  and two cases of beer from the  cooler. They proceeded to the  office behind the bar and kicked  in the door.  A filing cabinet in the office  was pryed open with the pry  bar, $90 and a jar containing  raffle money was removed and  emptied.  The office safe was also fore-  ed open and a large amount of  cash and cheques in a Bank of  Montreal bag were stolen. In  total over $2200 was netted by  the thieves. Making their getaway through the rear doors,  the burglars fled along a  pathway into the bushes.  Someone knows something  about this crime and we want to  hear from you!

"I called a general meeting to  go to the constituents to discuss  with them the development of  the Davis Bay area. It wasn't so  much a project-specific  meeting, but I wanted feedback  about what kind of development, if any, is wanted by the  people."  A film was shown by Oddvin  Vedo, Economic Development  Commissioner, about aquaculture, in order to show the  residents what fish farm equipment actually looks like, explained McRae.  "Living in Davis Bay, a lot of  people have no idea about how  fish farms operate. It's not easy  to get out to a farm to see it for  yourself," he said. "This was a  Norwegian film, but it is the only one presently available. Their  coastline is very similar to our  own, so it's a good example.  There will be a 12 minute segment on CBC's The Journal in  the near future, but we had no  way of getting hold of that."  "The animosity shown at the  meeting really surprised me,"  continued McRae. "I thought  the people were coming to hear  both sides of the story. And had  there been 70 people in favour  we'd have had to seriously look  at an amendment to the bylaw,  (264).  "Bylaw 264 isn't going to be  perfect right away. When we  developed it we had no idea  there'd be an application for a  parasail operation, for example.  If we have had three applications for different projects in  Davis Bay in three weeks, you  can bet there'll be more."     /  It was indicated at the  meeting by SCRD chairman  Jim Gurney that Bylaw 264 cannot be amended, according to  McRae. "The laws of the jlrea  must reflect the wishes of/the  people," McRae said. :'T11  make every effort to effect  changes that are required.  Bylaw 264 is not the be-all and  end-all. j '   ,  "Each director must look at  the maximum number of kides.  With 70 people in the room, I  was looking for 70 opinions.  Most of the people j there,  benefitted from the meeting and  made a good contribution, but  I'd say there were perhaps 20  people present who ; mis-  perceived what the meeting was  all about." .  "We have three choices," he  continued. "We can amend the  zoning to include the things the  residents want, or we can  change the zoning for that area,  or we can maintain the status  quo. Either way we have to look  carefully.  "I was disappointed in the  way that the people responded  to information coming their  way.
