V8V 1X4  85.4  **.'������  Close vote on issue  SCRD calls for  Gurney to  by Dianne Evans  In a suprise move at the Sunshine Coast Regional District  (SCRD) board meeting on  February 28, Area C Director,  Jon McRae made a motion calling for the resignation of board  chairman Jim Gurney, who is  also director of Area E.  "I get the feeling," said  Director McRae, "that the  chairman is dealing from the  bottom of the deck," referring  to the recent acquisition by the  SCRD of the Capilano College  building, and the controversial  handling of the street numbering system, which has been  discussed at length in two in-  camera meetings, despite objections from some board  members.  Area A Director Ian  Vaughan, who seconded the  motion, aired concerns he has  about the quality of government  emanating from the SCRD  ,'J3oard. "We were elected to supply good government, but we  see objections regularly  defeated. We are supposed to  have a consensus.  "It keeps happening," he  continued, "no matter how  many times a motion is  defeated, the chair comes back,  again and again. There is no excuse for having screaming matches. We are not supplying  good government.  "The chair has to be impartial...but it is hard to be impartial when you're involved in the  issues under discussion. Our  job, the one we were elected to  do, is to supply a reasonable,  good government for the Sunshine Coast. We are here to  meet the needs of the people  who elected us," Director  Vaughan added.  The motion was supported by  Gibsons representative, Director John Burnside, who said, "I  have lost confidence in the  chairman, who seems to have  lost his objectivity and  straightforwardness.  "I do believe that the chairman is a man of considerable  energy and intelligence who has  served the board well for a long  period of time, but I have never  sat on an organization as poorly  disciplined (as the SCRD  board). Staff members feel free  to make flip comments and  snide asides."  The Gibsons representative  continued, "Although I understand Director McGillivray's  concern over the possibility of  staff  bashing   that   prompted  For professional conduct  him to call, for the in-camera .  meetings   (to   discuss y street  numbering),   that  should  not  have been a reason for, secrecy.  It was because the chair ;is not  exercising control...We  didn't  trust   ourselves   to   have ; a  meeting in public because there ���:,  is inadequate control of debate y  from the chair."  "Democracy has taken quite  a kicking lately," Director  McRae said, who pointed out  that special requests are ignored  repeatedly, and that meetings  were held without notice oh im- <  portant issues, as was the case  with the purchase of the  Capilano College building.   ;  Mayor of Sechelt,  Director  Joyce   Kolibas   entered, the   .  discussion   by   expressing   her   *  concerns    over   the   street  numbering system.  "Doug Roy has not been here  to answer our questions or  criticisms. I don't understand  how these things happen."  Sechelt's mayor also questioned the fact that she and  Director Peggy Connor were  not advised of the street  numbering meeting held in the  afternoon of February 14.  Chairman Jim Gurney at this  point spoke up to defend his ac-  Please turn to page 16  More than 200 Beavers, Brownies, Guides, Scouts and Pathfinders joined together to celebrate their  third annual BP birthday party on February 17.

"He has never been unprofessional enough to go to the  press to respond to all the  criticism that has been heaped  upon him," continued Director  Vaughan.  Two letters were received by  the board from Roy Engineering Limited; the first, hand  delivered on February 11 (but  not received at the February 14  SCRD meeting, despite a PS requesting it be circulated to  board members) makes a proposal that the Roy company be  engaged to implement the  system of house numbering in  the area designated.  Roy says, "At completion,  the Regional District will have  only to inform all concerned of  their number. Lists relating tax  folio to legal description to address number will be prepared."  In his second letter, received  by the SCRD on February 27,  Roy refuted reports appearing  in both local newspapers in  which SCRD Planner Jim  Johnstone called the Roy  system "A lot numbering  system", and indicated that  some houses would have to  have their numbers changed if  the lots upon which they stand  should be sub-divided in the  future.  ; "I can state categorically that  the above statements are completely inaccurate," his letter  says.  "No one studying the manual  and map folios, with a view to  understanding and implementing the system, could make  (those) statements," the letter  continues.  Any number between Port  Mellon and Earls Cove can be  easily found "within three  minutes���manual reference  2.6-2.9". There may arise  reasons in the future to change a  number (manual reference  7.15), but this, according to the  letter, would appear to be the  exception rather than the rule.  Roy goes on to say that Planner Johnstone was involved in  drawing up the terms of  reference "with which the  system conforms", and makes  the point that "having made  such an investment and then  having doubts as to the  suitability of the product, the  consultant (Roy) would be called upon for explanation and  clarification."  In the meantime, Tom  Becker from Underwood  McLellan Limited has, by invitation, met with the board, as  reported in last week's Coast  News, and made criticism of the  Roy   system,    proposing   to  possibly  supplant   the  system  with his own.  Although the February 11. letter received by the SCRD from  Doug Roy (lacking the usual  Please turn to page 16  A letter which recently appeared in both local newspapers  was also received by Chairman  Jim Gurney of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District and  read at the February 28 board  meeting. The letter, from  George Herie of Gibsons, expresses his dissatisfaction with  the way the government is dealing with unemployment and  points out the real suffering endured by people who are  unemployed and consequently  on income assistance.  Although Mr. Herie has been  unemployed for a considerable  Ipngth of tifhe he still has good  .Ideas for, waysof creating work,  and his plea to the SCRD board  j was^for support and positive ac  tion for the unemployed.  Speaking in discussion,  Director John Burnside gave a  little background on the letter,  "It was written under great  emotional distress,. There is a  real degree of economic suffering all around us and I wonder  if it might not be possible to  reconsider the request we have  previously received to support  increased welfare rates.  "Both municipalities did so,"  said Director Burnside,  "although in a modified form.  We should display some compassion and understanding.  This is honest to God anguish  and I^wouid like to- see, the,  SCRD support the sort of  modified proposal which the  municipalities passed concern  ing an increase in welfare  rates."  Because the motion would  have to be drafted before the  board could vote upon it, Director Burnside gave notice of motion and it will be presented at  the next board meeting.  Chairman Gurney suggested  responding to the writer, pointing out that the new zoning  Bylaw 264, gives more flexibility  to people wishing to conduct  businesses in their own homes,  that SCEDS (Sunshine Coast  Employment Development  Society) is presently drawing up  a plan to develop employment  an thearea^ajid that the.board's  support of the Economic  Development Commission does  give support  Sechelts push on  for independence  by Dianne Evans  Eileen Jorgens winner of the Salmon Shark Lottery Derby early  draw February 10 collects the main prize; a $1,000 bill from  Richard Tomkies of the Sunshine Coast Tourist Association.  ���Ni^ilWConwav photo  "Fish-farming wonh create jobsv  Chief Stan Dixon and Sechelt  Indian Band (SIB) will be  meeting with Owen Anderson,  regional director-general, B.C.  of Constitutional Affairs on  Tuesday, March 5 to, in  Dixon's words, "Get the whole  thing (self-government) plans  back on track".  The SIB self-government  plan has been sitting in the  department of justice since  January 9, according to Dixon,  who has received a letter from  Bruce Rawson, deputy minister  of Indian Affairs, announcing  the formation of a committee to  help develop the proposal.  Dixon sees this as a stalling  tactic.   The  SIB  has  already  spent a great deal of time  developing their proposal and  members of the Band have  visited Ottawa to discuss additions to the legislation package.  The new committee proposed  by Rawson will be composed of  assistant deputy ministers,  chaired by Clovis Demers, and  will receive reports from a  federal team led by Audrey  Doerr, director, constitutional  affairs, in Ottawa and Dr.  Owen Anderson.  The agenda for the first  meeting between the SIB and  Dr. Anderson will include a  review of the contents of enabling legislation (including the  Sechelt Constitution) and a  workplan of subjects requiring  further attention.  UFAWU wants moratorium  by Neville Conway  President of the combined hospital auxiliaries, Betty Laidlaw  presents a token cheque to hospital administrator, Nick Vucurevich  and director of nursing, Wendy Hunt on behalf of the organization  which is donating $70,000, along with $9,000 from the Gibsons  branch and $500 from Roberts Creek. (See story page 5).  ���Dianne Evans photo  Geoff Meggs of the United  Fishermen and Allied Workers  Union, and editor of the  union's paper The Fisherman  called for a complete moratorim  on aquaculture in his address to  the Sunshine Coast Employment Development Society's  forum on aquaculture held in  Sechelt last Tuesday evening.  Meggs was speaking for the  UFAWU on a resolution agreed  upon by union delegates at a recent convention held in Vancouver.  The latest resolution proposed by Gibsons local #21, calls  for a moratorium on all further  development of aquaculture or  salmon farming until it can be  guaranteed that: fish farming  stays out of the hands of the  major corporations and banks;  no undue pressure is put on the  wild stocks of salmon eggs  needed for spawning; the  salmon enhancement program  for wild stock development is  fully implemented; aquaculture  in no way is used as a trade-off  or as a cover-up for the loss of  salmon habitat and there be no  move to ocean ranching.  "A lot of promises that have  been made in the Coast News  and other publications are a  hoax," said Meggs.  "Aquaculture will never be a  good employer," he added,  citing statistics from a recent  B.C. Science Council study. "It  requires the equivalent of 20  tons of salmon production a  year to support one person year  of employment. We can potentially employ 160 people coast  wide, but we'll be doing really  well to get 80 jobs," he added.  "And what will be the total  value of public subsidies required to maintain these jobs?"  queried Meggs. "Will we be  fostering a group of latter day  corporate welfare bums?" he  added. "It is a pipe dream to  think that a small business has a  hope, given present market  situation and investment required."  A fish farmer who has sold  his home in order to start his  own fish farming venture later  objected to the term 'welfare  bum'. Mr. Meggs said he did  not wish to offend the small  businessman who had invested  his own capital to finance his  operation.  "I wish you good luck," said  Meggs, "but the market is not  set up for small businesses to  compete." He said, "You'll  meet the big guys out there and  they play for keeps." Meggs  mentioned that at least 30 firms  have indicated an interest in  salmon farming in B.C. in the  last two months according to  provincial officials. Large investors are now appearing like  the Rockefellers who have a 20  per cent interest in Ibec Inc., a  firm that has taken a permit for  a farm near Port Hardy.  Meggs also passed on a quote  from local fish farmer Brad  Hope. "You really have to have  $300,000 to give away before  you can get into fish farming."  Brad Hope was also quoted in a  recent article in The Fisherman.  "Fish farming never was a  possibility for a cottage industry level unless much larger  gruops were involved," Hope  said. "Even in Norway small  operations are backed by large  firms with big capital and international connections."  Meggs also mentioned the  possibility that there may have  to be radical changes like the  abolishing of common property  rights to develop aquaculture.  "There shouldn't be any  changes in property rights until  all aspects are explored," said  Meggs who also broached the  potentially controversial issue of  leases being given out for  aboriginal land.  "We should all see the need  for a moratorium," he concluded.  Deborah Turnbull, a director  on the international consulting  firm Envirocon Limited and  editor of the Canadian  Aquaculture Bulletin was also  on hand at Tuesday's forum  Please turn to page 16 Coast News, March 4,1985  There may be some cautionary value in the cold water  dashed on the future of aquaculture at last week's  aquaculture forum by Geoff Meggs, editor of The Fisherman and a member of UFAWU but it is unlikely that his  call for a moratorium will find many supporters outside  his own union.  Meggs is almost certainly right to remind us that there  are many difficulties involved in fish farming. We  remember June Hope of Tidal Rush Marine Farms mentioning an aquaculture conference where her husband was  talking of markets and she of diseases and problems.  "They tended to put down their pencils when I started to  talk about the many problems in getting a fish farm  going," said Ms Hope.  Meggs is also probably right when he sees more job opportunities being found in salmon enhancement programs  than in fish farming.  Be that as it may, call for a moratorium seems shortsighted and negative. Canada is already far behind other  countries in the development of a fish farming industry  and a moratorium could accomplish little but widening the  gap.  If we get into a situation where we are arguing fish  farming or salmon enhancement as either-or propositions  we will be doing ourselves a disservice. Vigorous support  for small stream salmon enhancement is compatible with a  vigorous aquaculture industry. Not to pursue both policies  is to shortchange our future.  Despite the UFAWU call for a moratorium, it seems  certain that fish farming has a role to play in the economic  future of the Sunshine Coast. It is possible Mr. Meggs, to  reconcile support for the development of aquaculture with  a clear call for small-stream salmon enhancement, possibly  utilizing fishermen misplaced for the time being from the  industry.  The Coast News, which was singled out by Meggs for  pushing aquaculture, was also calling for salmon enhancement more than a year ago, considerably before the matter  came to Mrs. Meggs' attention.  We, of course, nonetheless welcome his commitment to  salmon enhancement, however belated and despite the unnecessary exclusivity of approach he seems to be insisting  on.

Tyner Talk  The medicare dilemma  by James H. Tyner  With the introduction of  medicare our health has greatly  improved. No longer do we see  any number of people experiencing poor health because they  cannot afford to see a doctor or  stay in a hospital. The worry of  being able to provide health services for one's family has been  removed. There is no question  that health services have beeri  advanced and expanded sinc^  the introduction of medicare*!  yet there are many who do not  seem particularly happy or  satisfied, in fact there seems to  be considerable dissatisfaction.  The medical profession does  not seem very happy, why in  some parts of the country we  have seen doctors threatening to  strike while others have  demanded the right to extra bill  indicating that medicare does  not provide an adequate income. This has surprised us as  from Income Tax Statistics we  see that the incomes of the  medical profession are among  the highest professional incomes  in the country. Today many  members of the medical profession are considered important  sources of investment capital by  the financial community.  The provincial governments  are not happy and one gets the  impression that they would like  to find some way to reduce fees.  There is no question that  governments, confronted with  falling revenues, face serious  difficulties in their efforts to  maintain services but reducing  the funding of vital services will  not help. In addition the provincial governments must adhere to  federal policy if they are to  receive federal funding. They  are caught in a dilemma: they  wish to maintain medicare but  want to cut the cost.  The general public appears  reasonably satisfied although  there are those who complain  that it costs too much, that they  are never sick and yet-pay a high  premium.  The uncertainty of the whole  thing has many of us worried.  Can we afford it or can't we?  Can we depend on it or is it to  be taken away? Mulroney has  said that medicare is a sacred  trust but the cost is high and going higher and the federal  government is talking about  cutting back.  A system stabilized and under  control is required.  According to report, one of  the founders of the present  system of medicare, dismayed  by the financial demands placed  upon it, has recommended its  complete abandonment replacing it with a form of disaster insurance wherein the poor and  the elderly would be looked  after as at present and for the  rest provide insurance coverage  for claims only in excess of  $1,000. Under such a system  normal visits to a doctor, less  expensive surgery, and other  treatment would not be  covered.  Others have proposed that all  doctors be placed on salary and  so eliminate rising fees.  The first seems a little extreme as it would not provide  for those wanting more extensive coverage while the other  would probably not work for  various reasons - the most important being that the medical  profession would not put up  with it, or if it did, would  replace rising fees with  skyrocketing salaries.  Perhaps a solution to the problem might be a graduated  system of medical insurance  wherein the poor and the elderly  would continue to receive  medical attention as at present  and the others receive coverage  in accordance with their desires.  Those desiring full and com  plete coverage would pay a  substantial premium while those  desiring less coverage would pay  a smaller premium determined  by the deductible amount anywhere from $100 to $1,000. This  would give the people some  choice and at the same time permit the doctors to bill the patient directly where the fee fell  within the deductible amount.  Such a system should provide  adequate coverage and bring  about more effective cost control. It should be more satisfactory provided the federal and  provincial governments could  agree on the matter.

John Ciardi  Maryanne's    viewpoint  Union presence a factor  by Maryanne West  So Bill Bennett has been  reading lacocca's autobiography too!  It would seem to me he's  skipped- the important parts,  but we all tend to latch onto the  ideas to which we can relate personally and avoid those which  make us uncomfortable. One of  the first things Lee lacocca did  after taking on the ailing  Chrysler Corporation was to invite the president of the union  to sit on the board of directors.  Although this isn't an  unusual procedure in Europe  and is standard in Japan, it  seems to have been the first time  a representative of labour sat on  the board of a major American  corporation, though the unions  had been asking for representation for years.  As lacocca describes it, "The  business community went wild!  They said, 'You can't do that!  You're putting the fox into the  henhouse. You've lost your  mind.'"  "Why," asks lacocca, "is it  alright to have bankers on the  board when you owe them 100  million but not a worker? Why  is it alright to have suppliers on  the board? Isn't that a conflict  of interest? The problem is that  the average American business  manager is a prisoner of  ideology. He still believes that  labour has to be the natural  mortal enemy of the manager.  That's obsolete thinking. I want  labour to understand the inner  workings of the company. The  old days are gone for good.  America's economic future  depends upon increased cooperation among government,  union and management.  "I put Doug Fraser on our  board because I knew he could  make a special contribution.  He's smart, he's politically savvy and he says what he thinks.  As a board member Doug  found out first hand what was  going on at Chrysler from the  perspective of management. He  learned how our suppliers con  tributed and that our turnaround wasn't only due to the  workers. He learned that our  profit and loss statements were  real and that profit wasn't a dirty word.  "He's had an enormous effect. When there is a plant closing he advises us on how to  minimize the dislocation and  the suffering that go with it.  He's chairman of our public  policy committee and also on  the health care committee. I'm  very glad I put Doug Fraser on  the board, because he's first  class. I'd put him on any board  I was on. He's that good. He  knows how to negotiate. He  knows how to compromise. He  knows the difference between a  good deal and a bad deal.  "It wasn't of course only  management who objected to  Fraser being on the board of  directors. Plenty of union guys  were against it too. They were  afraid that Fraser being on the  board might compromise their  leadership ability to extract the  last drop of blood out of the.  turnip. All their lives they've.  had an attitude to get all you.  can because management will  never do anything for the good:;  of the worker unless it is ex-:;  tracted with violence or bloody-  shed. ;  "For this kind of thinking to>  change, you need to have'  reasonable men on both sides ���  who can discuss the concept of '���-.  sharing profits only when we';  have some to share and wage in- ���';  creases only when we have im- '���;  proved productivity.

Let's hope our premier is  getting that message too. Coast News, March 4,1985  Editor:  ; The education system in  ���British Columbia is presently  ��� under constant attack both as  )an asset and as a liability. An  ; asset as a reflection of our  ; values and the future role of  istudents as contributing  ; citizens; a liability as a reflection  ; of our concern over the cost of  ���the system. The latter requires  fair,  reasonable,  and decisive  -consideration.  : We are amid a great verbal  ;and printed exchange between  ;the proponents of restrained  ;and restricted delivery of educational services, and those of the  ;opposite view who seek, at the  ���least, the present level of pro  grams and services, and at the  most, further enhancement of a  system that they consider to be  in jeopardy. We are seeing the  initial salvos of government intent, drawing the return fire of  school board's concern and  frustration. Hunkered down  amid the cross-fire are the  beleaguered taxpayers and  voters who give to one side its  provincial mandate, and the  other their local political base;  and who give both sides the  money to do the job of  educating the future taxpayers  and voters.  It would appear to bejthe  time to choose sides, to further  the divisiveness and rancor. But  is such a choice necessary? Surely the furor over one half of one  per cent of the provincial  budget is not worth the chaos of  the present confrontation. Inevitably there will be a solution,  imposed or compromised.  The Sunshine Coast Solidarity Coalition suggests, in broad  terms,   consideration   of   the  following in arriving at the solution: maintain existing provin-^  cial funding, including an inflation  factor,  as  requested by  local school boards, until long ^  term policies are determined,  and the public is aware of that V  determination; return to local y  school boards the autonomy to  make fiscal decisions; maintain "V  provincial educational funding  Working mother appalled  .; Editor:  '-��� I was appalled to read the letter in last week's Coast News  ���rfrom Anne Miles, Gibsons, in  "J which she attempts to point out  'j that women who choose to stay  jhome and raise children without  ja possibly "oppressive" relationship with a man, are productive and are working. I  ;i assume by working she means  ;'staying home and raising her  ^children and being paid to do so  ^���by the Department of Human  ^.Resources.  ", There are many women who  ' hold down a job and also create  homes for their children and  ' who do not rely on the largesse  of the government which Ms  Miles seems to feel is due her as  a "working" mother.  The welfare system was not  set up to provide a living for  women who choose to have  children without considering the  financial responsibilities which  go along with raising those  children. It was set up as short  term aid for those persons who  are in desperate straits and those  who are too handicapped or  disabled to be able to work.  Ms Miles is either supremely  ignorant or arrogant in thinking  she has the right to raise her  family without the responsibility of earning a living. As a  worker (and a single mother) I  do not particularly care to support her and her children. I'm  sure there are many other taxpayers around who feel that  society does not owe a living to  women because they choose to  not work and have children.

I would more than support  Ms Miles' decision to stay home  and raise her children if she was  not doing so at the expense of  every taxpayer in the province.  Get your family out of the  public trough Ms Miles and  then you can truly say that you  are raising your children  yourself.  Margaret Webb  Sechelt  Editor:  It was with pleasure that I  read in the Coast News that  Gibsons now has an Electors'  Association, and with such an  impressive slate of officers!  May we wish you every success in your future endeavours  - go for it Gibsons Ratepayers  - what have you got to lose but  apathy.  An association is like a chain,  "only as strong as its weakest  link", and that link is membership. We are willing to do the  work but we need ideas and  support from the people we  represent.  You don't know what an  electors' association is all  about? We'd be glad to share  our experiences with you at  Area E's next meeting on  March -13. at Cedar : Grove  school, 7:30 p.m. Aside from  regular business the Coast  Crime Stoppers will be there to  tell us what it's all about and  because we wholeheartedly support the program, we hope to  raise a few dollars for them.  In April our agenda features  Art McPhee to explain the PEP  program. In the future we hope  to include such features as so-_  meone from the EHS service  advising us on what to do 'til  the ambulance arrives.  Associations are a non-  political watchdog trying to  bring the public taxpayer up-to-  date on issues or what's going  on in their corner of the world.  Don't you think 10 nights of  your time per year is worth  helping your local associations  to function successfully? We  welcome your input, suggestions and discussion.  Here's to a successful start  for 1985. :._:.v:.;-irj  Joan Mahlman; President  ������' ( Elphinstone  Electors' Association  Abortion film here  Editor:  Several weeks ago, a letter  appeared in the Coast News,  describing a film which depicts,  through ultrasound, the actual  abortion of a 12 week old fetus.  The letter was followed by a  thoughtful "Musings" column  and some interesting correspondence.  The letter is to inform readers  that the film in question "The  Silent Scream" narrated by ex-  abortionist Doctor Bernard  Nathenson, will be shown at a  public meeting in Roberts Creek  elementary school on Monday,  March 11 at 8 p.m.  Films depicting the horrors of  the Nazi holocaust and of the  potential effects of a nuclear  war have done much to sensitize  the public to these issues.  "The Silent Scream" is the  first opportunity to view the  abortion issue from the perspective of the victim���the unborn  child. Whatever our position on  abortion, the viewing of this  film is an essential part of our  education on the issue.  All are welcome. Discussion  will follow the showing of the  film.  Margaret Fraser  President  Christians for Life  Davis Bay  Clinic is grateful  Editor:  On behalf of the physicians  and staff of the Gibsons  Medical Clinic we wish to extend sincere thanks to the local  Kinsmen organization for their  recent presentation of a cardiac-  monitor defibrillator to the  clinic, for use in providing  enhanced emergency care to the  people of Gibsons and district.  We also want to acknowledge  the generous community support which made the presentation possible.  We appreciate the motivation  and dedication by all concerned  that went into this worthy project.  An open house will be held  March 23, 1985 between 1 and 3  p.m. to which the public is cordially invited for viewing and  demonstration of the new  equipment.

Solidarity Coalition  Editor:  Last week my daughter's  small pet goat was savagely killed and partially eaten by a pack  of dogs. This is only one of  many recent incidents in  Roberts Creek where livestock  has been destroyed.  I know there are many  responsible dog owners; everyday I see people trying to take  their leashed dogs for a walk,  only to be harassed by all the  other dogs on the loose.  I have spoken with a number  of people who are afraid to go  for a walk without a stick or a  pocket full of rocks to scare  away dogs.  There have also been a  number of large dog fights that  I have witnessed. During these  fights the dogs get but of con-'  trol; what would happen if a  small child got too close to this  pack? I shudder to even think of  the outcome.  I hope we don't have to wait  for one of our children to be  mauled before anything will be  done about the dog situation in  Roberts Creek!

Mary Willoughby, winner of  the grand aggregate award last  fall in the Sechelt Garden Show,  now offers her horticultural expertise to the public in her  florist shop in Sunnycrest Mall.  Like her home gardens on  Stewart Road, the shop will be  called the Green Scene.  Margaret and John Kitson  whose parents reside on Henry  Road and who attended Gibsons elementary in the 1970's,  have continued their post-  secondary education in the  United States.  Margaret graduated last year  from Lewis and Clark College  in Portland, Oregon. Her major  in art history embraced a wide  field of study.  John is in his second year of  arts and science at the University of Washington, Seattle. He  will apply for entrance to their  engineering school this year.  John trains with the varsity  rowing crews of eights and  pairs.  Their mother Sheila is the  jovial dispenser of chocolates  and ice cream cones in her Truffles candy store in lower Gib  sons. You may have purchased  several of the 1000 cones she  sells each week in the summer or  tasted her superb chocolates.  Have you filled out your  questionnaire on the recycling  of garbage on the Sunshine  Coast? The container for Gibsons folk to drop the questionnaires in can be found near the  empty carton bin at Super Valu.  Look carefully for it - it may get  covered over with empty cartons.  Two Calgary firms have used  old paper or bottles in their products. Recycled paper is used in  the manufacture of composition  shingles, and recycled white  bottles ground to small bead  size form an integral part of a  product used as a reflecting centre strip on asphalt roads.  A further observation on  recycling: compost brings rats  avisiting. Yes it does. Don't be  squeamish, set traps in your  covered compost bins. You will  soon have proof your bins  aren't rat proof after all.  Reports of sea monster  sightings in Gibsons harbour  and adjacent water just before  daybreak last Saturday proved  false.  Certainly there was a great  deal of scurrying about at first  light as the RCMP fishing derby  got underway. It is thought this  led to the sea monster reports.  ^RllSiiKiiKrlili  Cmf_f^Bs  by Jeanie Parker, 886-3973  The regional board is considering recycling as part of our  garbage disposal service. We  would be asked to separate  glass, metal, and newspapers  from our other garbage and put  only the recyclable garbage out  on specified pickup days.  It means a little extra hassle  tying up newspapers, etc. and  we'd have to remember that  every other week, every third  week, or one week in four, we  put out only our recyclables,  not our normal garbage.  But not only is recycling  desirable from an environmental standpoint, it saves money!  It means less garbage to take to  the dump so less landfill costs.  There is a saving on time and  distance in pickup costs as there  are depots in both Gibsons and  Sechelt. The SCRD would  qualify for grants for recycling.  And the money received for  recyclable materials would offset transportation and disposal  costs overall.  If the decision is made to implement recycling you don't  have to participate, but on the  designated day, only recyclable  resources will be picked up so  you'd have to save your un-  sorted garbage until the next  week. The program would be  tried on a one-year basis to  judge its success.  The decision to implement  recycling will be based on your  response. Questionnaires are  available at the Roberts Creek  post office if you haven't yet  filled one out. They're to be  returned to Seaview Market,  Super Valu, or Shop Easy by  this Friday, March 8, so don't  delay.

We  have several guests and Pauline  Lamb   made   personalized  favours for each of them. We  are grateful to the Legion for  setting  up the  hall,  and  to  Thelma   Macdonald   for   the  lovely centrepieces. Guy Lewall,  chairman   of   the   board   of  hospital trustees paid tribute to  the volunteers who man the  various services to the hospital  and to Mary Macdonald, our  retiring volunteer director, and  welcome Vivian Tepoorten, our  new volunteer director. Wendy  Hunt, director of nursing, introduced   Mrs.   Jeanette   McBain,  our new in-service coordinator. Jeanette comes to us  with so many qualifications, we  wondered how she had chosen  the lovely Sunshine Coast. The  answer is simple - her husband  was posted  here in his job!  Jeanette is an obstetric expert  and arrives  as the new and  wonderfully   exciting   birthing  bed arrives,  provided by the  Gibsons branch of the auxiliary.  Mr.   Vucurevich,   our   administrator encouraged us. He  told of the co-operative attitude  shown by staff, board members  and volunteers in maintaining  the standard of care. He also  spoke seriously to us about the  high cost of self-inflicted health  problems; meaning, of course,  smoking,   drinking,   sports  medicine, automobile accidents  due to carelessness.  He even  reminded us that in the future,  like it or not, we are going to be  faced   with   the   subject   of  euthanasia;   the   care   of  the  elderly, the physically and mentally   handicapped.   The  very  idea of having to face these...  issues is frightening. He asked if  we who are in good health now,  are doing our best to maintain a  high   standard   of   personal  health care in our diet, our exercise, and our forms of relaxation.   Hospital  costs escalate,  not   only   because  equipment  costs    more,    and    more  sophisticated   equipment   is  necessary, but also because we  expect more and more of our  hospitals.    Financially,   St.  Mary's was in a surplus position  in 1983-84, which was carried  over to 1984-85, but now there  is no extra cumulative fund.  The board, the administration  and the staff have some very  tough areas with which to wrestle, and Mr. Vucurevich asked  us to keep up our good work. If  any one other than a volunteer  is reading this, we can use you.  Dr. Esty, chief of staff, said  he thought he'd be meeting with  a few volunteers, not a room  full of us. He told us the auxiliary work and generosity in  providing the 'over and above'  equipment, was one reason he is  practising here today; that this  is a choice area; that many of  the   doctors   have   practised  elsewhere and find they can  practise medicine here in a satisfying  way.  We  are a  small  hospital, but so well equipped,  he is able to have continuity  with his patients, rather than  having to send them away for  tests,   etc.   He  expressed  the  delight of all the doctors with  the new birthing bed. It is expected the using public will be  even more delighted.  Reverend Neil Parker of  Bethel Baptist Church, Sechelt,  spoke to us on a subject close to  our hearts - hospital visitation.  He impressed upon us persistence, faithfulness and  resourcefulness in our visiting.  Hard on the heels of the  Brown Bag Luncheon, the executive council of the auxiliary  met on February 26 and the six  branches reported that  unanimously less one negative  vote, it was agreed to make  available to the hospital for the  1985. Capital Expenditure  Budget, the'sum of $70,000,  plus $9,000 for the birthing bed  (Gibsons) and $500 for additional ECU tables (Roberts  Creek).  Benefit pledges of $185 were  turned over to the RCMP  following their hockey game  with the Oldtimers. All proceeds are for the hospital. A  spoon was given our New  Year's baby, daughter of Mr.  and Mrs. P. Hales. The engraving was donated by Nova'  Jewellers.  Roberts Creek branch profited from a visit and message  from Fran Ovens of the Canadian Cancer clinic on the subject of breast cancer. The more  aware we are, the better able we  are to maintain our personal  health standard. Members are  reminded of important matters  to be discussed at Roberts  Creek's 11 a.m. March 11  meeting.  Hovercraft stalled  Due in part to a devaluation  of the peso, Mexican owners of  the hovermarine vessels which  used to ply the Vancouver-  Nanaimo run, have agreed to  give the vessel operators, Seaspeed Company of Vancouver,  first option to buy the craft.  Seaspeed president Jim Yates  told the Coast News that the  three hovermarines are tied up  at the Lynwood Marina with  crews working elsewhere for the  time   being.  Yates said that reports of a  $1.4 million debt are true but efforts are still being made by the  company to buy the boats  worth in the neighbourhood of  $2 million each.  "With potential equity of $6  million in boats a $1.4 million  debt is nothing," said  Economic Development Commissioner, Oddvin Vedo whose  office is supporting Seaspeed's  efforts to buy the hovermarine  vessels.  "At a $5 to $6 per person rate  the hovermarines can run profitably at 30 per cent capacity  (approximately 23 seats on a 70  passenger vessel) according to a  survey done by Seaspeed," said  Vedo.

ENCOURAGEMENT  Many people have stopped  me or phoned to say that they  are enjoying the column. Thank  you! Encouragement is one of  the best spring (or summer or  fall) tonics we can give others.  A few words, a note, a  flower���little things can mean a  great deal to us. Often, our gifts  of encouragement come to  others just when they are feeling  down, or wondering where to  go, or doubting themselves.  Make a point this month of encouraging someone every day; a  smile, a touch, a little "I appreciate you" will go a long way  to making this world a more  pleasant place.   STAINED GLASS AT  ST.

The class runs Monday  and Friday mornings from 8:45  to 9:45.  Don't let the "advanced"  label intimidate you: Shirley  and Darlene let you work at  your own pace, and never ask  you to do more than you are  able. It's surprising, though,  how fast you can get fit if you  work at it. You need not be a  Jane Fonda type���I go to this  class, and that should say it all.  INFO CENTRE  Our little Info Centre has  been a real boon to residents  and tourists alike, particulary  the washrooms! Hundreds of  summer visitors find out about  the recreational facilities of the  Harbour, or park their trailer  for a low cost while out fishing.  But what happens when the  centre is closed? Jack Heidema  has a super idea that will help  the information-hungry during  the off-hours. He is putting up a  bulletin board on the awning,  with business and public information. If you want your ad or  info there, please call Jack as  soon as possible, 883-9973.  WILDLIFE MEETING  The March meeting of the  Wildlife Society will feature  diver Mike Perrault, with slides,  pictures and a talk on undersea  life. Set aside Tuesday, March  19 at 7:30 p.m., Madeira Park  elementary.  MADEIRA PARK SENIORS  BRANCH #80  Our seniors met, as usual,  Monday evening February 18 in  the Community Hall. Mrs.  Evelyn Olson, our provincial  president installed the incoming executive: Pat Mitchell,  president; Norm Crossley, vice-  president; Margaret Causey,  treasurer and Elspeth Logan,  secretary. Mrs. Olson presented  our past president, Mr. Mel  Likes with his past president's  pin.  The seniors voted to change  our meeting place to the Legion  Hall in Madeira Park from the  Community Hall and we will be  meeting on the first Monday of  each month instead of the third  Monday of each month. The  next meeting will therefore take  place on April 1 at the usual  time of 7:30 p.m.  We hope to see as many  members, plus any new ones, as  possible. We ended up the evening playing carpet bowling and  even managed two games with  the refreshments brought to a  little table while we played the  second one. A great time was  had by all.  SAY IT WITH FLOWERS  Maud and Andy of the  Hayestack have launched a new  service for the Harbour���fresh  flowers and arrangements,  which can be delivered to the  hospital! Maud recently completed a course in floral design,  and will be pleased to create  something special for your  home or for someone special. If  you have the knack of arranging, the Hayestack has the cut  flowers for you.  Willow  Days  by Ann Cock, 883-9167  Here it is March and time to  look for pussy willows and  something green to wear on St.  Patrick's Day.  The days are getting longer  and warmer, how nice after the  cold short days of winter.  Gardeners will be getting out  their tools and seed catalogues.  I checked and marked the tide  book for the next daytime low  tide for gathering seaweed to  add to the garden soil.  I'm not much of a gardener  or even have a green thumb, but  at this time of year I find myself  thinking of planting and growing things. Maybe the feeling  will pass and as close as I'll get  to gardening is marking the tide  book.  REMINDER TIME  Tuesday, March 12 is Clinic  Day at the school; Wednesday is  Thrift Store Day.  Any day is a good day to stop  me and pay your Community  Club membership for 1985.  Backeddy hours are 3 to 11  p.m. except Sunday when they  are 3 to 8 p.m. The view, while  enjoying food and socializing, is  as good as ever. If you come up  for a Sunday drive you can view  the golf course that is changing  by the hour these days, then onto Ruby Lake where the new  park is shaping up.

Sechelt Seniors  by Robert Foxall  While we are looking forward  with anticipation to the construction of our new hall we are  not neglecting the upkeep and  maintenance of the present hall  and it isiin that respect that our  thanks must go to the members  who are keeping things in good  trim.  Among the things done  recently has been the installation of new stairs at the back of  the hall. In this respect our  thanks to Henry Draper and  Herb Richter for constructing a  new garbage tin cart which  assisted Mickey Cornwell in  clearing away the rubbish accumulated from the rebuilding  job.  Any new ideas for crafts will  be welcomed on Thursday mornings at 10. Talking about  crafts, it's time to get those  plants started for our plant sale,  to be held May 4.  Ruby Breadner has not been  well and has asked to be relieved  of her duties at the door for our  activities. Mary Eldred has stepped into the breach and taken  over these duties. A big hand to  both of these good ladies.  Len Herder, chairman of the  new building committee,  has  need for written (repeat written)  submissions of suggestions for  facilities to be included in the  new hall. He needs these written  suggestions within the next  week to 10 days.  We want to renew our thanks  to the artists who performed at  our last concert and to advise  that there will be a variety show  on March 29 and 30 featuring  the Halfmoon Bay Hams and  the Sechelt 69'ers. Tickets will  be available at our usual outlets  Which reminds me of more  thanks which must be extended  and that is in relation to our  concert of February 23. This  was an excellent show thanks to  the performers' talents. Thanks  to Nikki Weber for organizing  and stage managing the performance. Thanks to Connie Wilson who accompanied all performers and also gave a well  received solo. Thanks to all our  members who gave their time  and energy to prepare popcorn  and refreshments. They'll be on  the job March 29 and 30.  Nikki Weber advises that she  has vacancies for three members  for the 69'ers. Phone Nikki at  885-7781 and get yourself into  company that has a lot of fun  and gives the rest of us a lot of  pleasure.  by Peggy Connor, 885-9347  DINNER/DANCE  The Hospital Employees'  Union is hosting a dinner/dance  on March 9, the proceeds of  which will go towards the Variety Club Telethon.

NEW STATUS FOR  TIMBER DAYS  A society has now been formed for Sechelt Timber Days,  thanks to the efforts of Mike  Shanks. Now it will continue  through the years to make it a  more secure event without having to scrounge up people at the  last moment as sometimes has  happened.  Mrs. Jerrie Lou Wickwire, of  Halfmoon Bay is the new chairman; secretary is Lori Wilson,  representative from the Sechelt  Legion; PR is Carol Osli; other  positions yet to be filled are  vice-chairman and treasurer.  Arts Council curator Belinda  McLeod has taken charge of the  poster contest.  The theme for this year will  be "Our Heritage".  The next meeting will be held  at the Sechelt village board  room on Tuesday, March 5  starting at 7 p.m.  Membership to the society is  $1, membership open and encouraged. If you wish any information especially as to how you  may help telephone the chairman at 885-9750 or come out to  the meeting on Tuesday.  More Halfmoon Happenings  Continued from page 6  SHOW BIZ!  The semi-classical show produced by Nikki Weber at the  seniors hall last Saturday was  certainly an evening to  remember. It's very seldom that  a show can present five outstanding female vocalists of such  high calibre as Alice Horseman,  Joan Bist, Arline Collins, Signi  Murgatroyd and Katherine Kelly. Each one was different and  each was superb, giving their all  to a most appreciative audience.  The proceeds went to the new  seniors' hall fund which will  also be the recipent of proceeds  from the new Halfmoon Hams  show due to take place for two  nights, March 29 and 30.  Tickets are already moving for  this ever popular show and may  be had at both book stores, at  Strings 'n Things or from  members of the senior citizens.

The incredible  Ronnie Dunn will appear with  some of her delightful comedy  routines, and she is hard at  work trying to persuade the  fabulous Crockettes chorus line  to come back out of retirement  again for this show.  WRITERS TAKE NOTE  The Suncoast Writers Forge  will have a well known local  lady as guest speaker at the next  meeting on Wednesday, March  13. Ann Langdon's topic will be  ''Writing Promotion Material".  She will talk about the kind of  press releases which appear on  her desk as a newspaper editor  and the reasons why many of  these failed to find their way into print, how to write a good  press release that will be used by  the media. This should be of  particular interest to all we columnists and those who aspire to  this goal.  Ann Langdon is responsible  for all publicity materials  emanating from the Sunshine  Coast Tourism Association and  she knows her subject well.  Everyone will be welcome to attend at the Arts Centre at 7:30  p.m. on March 13.  SECHELT GARDEN CLUB  There's a bonus for early attendee at the Sechelt Garden  Club meeting on Wednesday,  March 6 at St. Hilda's Church  Hall.

Coast News, March 4,1985  Support for teachers and ad-  ��� ministrators, a persuasive plea  for more time to respond to the  province's "Let's Talk About  Schools" questionnaire, and a  general concern about the  nature of education in the  future, were overriding themes  at the third forum on education  held at Elphinstone high school  last Wednesday.  Acting vice-principal of  Elphinstone high school Jack  Pope said, "I am adding my  voice to the many who have  criticized Jack Heinrich for this  poorly conceived process in  which the public is to help shape  schools of the future in this province. That such an historic  dialogue, which last took place  30 years ago, should be crammed into a three month instant  only belies the credibility of the  process."  Pope later added, "We are  destined to become hewers of  wood and drawers of water  while the rest of Canada, and  the world, moves.ahead into the  future. The education of our  young is far too important a  matter to be left in the hands of  the politicians."  "It is not a positive factor to  have the motives and expertise  of our teachers questioned"  noted a representative of Gibsons elementary school parents.  Elphinstone student council  president Tim McCail expressed  a similar view. "If you think  that our country is having problems now, wait until a generation of labourers enter the work  world. Education should be the  first priority not the last."  Priorities were again questioned in Carol and Brett  McGillivray's brief. "It is interesting to note that the cut in  the Vancouver school board's  budget was $17 million, exactly  the cost of the silver-domed  'golf ball' that Social Credit is  building for Expo."  Social Credit was attacked  again by Ms Shawn Cardinall  who slammed what she called  "the blatant political nature of  the forum process". She added,  "How valued is public input  when responses to questions  contained in the discussion  paper are rendered pointless by  legislation introduced by the  education minister while public  meetings are in progress."  Maryanne Jolicoeur of Roberts Creek elementary school  Parents' Auxiliary also noted  the futility of the forum process. "We felt that a thorough  and well researched review of  the School Act is necessary at  this time. However, "Let's Talk  About Schools", is a totally inadequate vehicle for this review,  there is not enough time for the  public to respond in any meaningful way."  Bert Slater of the Sunshine  Coast Teachers' Association  was one of several educators to  voice specific complaints. Slater  slammed the ministry's attitude  toward teachers' bargaining  rights, expressing the SCTA  view that teachers should be  able to bargain agreements pertaining to working conditions,  as do the majority of workers in  the province and teachers in  other provinces such as Alberta  and Ontario. "We only ask that  the scope of bargaining be  widened to include those items  already in the labour code like  sick leave, maternity leave,  hours of work, health and safety measures, and personnel  practices," said Slater.  On a similar note, concerned  parent April Mackenzie mentioned, "Compulsory and binding arbitration should be obtained for teachers, strikes and  lockouts should not be an alternative to arbitration." Ms  Mackenzie also expressed a view  of education independent of  financial parameters.  "The good times are gone  and time and energy should be  spent trying to improve situations within the limits not trying  to get the 'comforts' and 'good  times' back again." Mackenzie  commented on one of the  reasons for taking her sons out  of the public school system.  "Enrichment programs are sadly lacking and were long before  restraints set in."  Richard Bolivar, a Sechelt  elementary school teacher, voiced another complaint about cutbacks in special programs, after  complimenting superintendent  Denley for his initial role in implementing the Native Environmental Studies Program  he went on to say, "The many  dreams of the NES program are  now waiting in the trailers and  classrooms of Deserted Bay."

Let's be  honest - it doesn't happen very often. Some people just  know one too well!  I'll explain. For years now I've been attempting to feed  tofu to my family and for years now they've been muttering and declining and screaming things like "pooey  food" every time I serve it. I have attempted several different ways from stir-fried chunks a la chinoise to mashed in hamburger. None of these methods has worked.  Just recently I thought it was my annual try-again time.  After all we were all a year older and perhaps just a little  more aware of good nutrition.  I was in the store searching for my package of tofu  when I saw a recipe sheet. I don't know about you but I  always take these things home with me - and usually  stuff them away - to be used later, of course. This one  was entitled "Chocolate Mint Pudding" so just for the  heck of it I served it up for supper. "They" thought it  was some sort of cheese cake and had second helpings.  I never said a word. I'm relying on you to keep my  secret!  \  Chocolate Mint Pudding  1 pkg (454 gms) moderately firm tofu  Vz cup milk  1A cup melted butter or margarine  % cup cocoa  1 teaspoon peppermint extract or  2 tablespoons creme de menthe  1 teaspoon vanilla  pinch of salt  1. Drain the tofu. Wrap it in paper towel and gently  squeeze to absorb most of the water.  2. Place in a bowl and mash with a fork.  3. In a bowl place other ingredients and beat well. The  recipe sheet tells you to use a blender but my dear old  machine wouldn't take the strain. One of them there  kitchen zappers would sure do the trick!  4. Beat in the tofu a little at a time until the mixture is  thick and creamy.  5. Serve in dessert dishes or in a pre-baked pie crust.  Chocolate crumbs taste good. Chill at least 4 hours  before serving.  6. Garnish with some vanilla flavoured whipped cream  and grated chocolate.  I guess this isn't for those of us on diets, but one has  to get one's calories from somewhere - doesn't one?

On occasion both John and Fran Burnside  have written a piece for me, in which case my name does  not appear.  Last week I took a "spell" in the bank and went  straight up to the clinic where my symptoms were  diagnosed as angina. This has all the earmarks of a heart  attack and can lead to that, but, in my case was a good  warning with no apparent heart injury.

When we're gone, things will carry on very well without  us.  As I lay on the cot in the clinic while being prepared for  transfer to the ambulance, I was overcome with the  myriad of things I had left undone; things I had to do,  and Shop Talk was but one of them. As I expressed,  even then, the remark I've just made, the ambulance  driver said, "There's never time to do all one needs to  do." I know he must be right.  So why not enjoy the fullness of life in a manner that  will also sustain it. At least that's what I say to myself  now, - I know it will be hard to change.  By the way, what I said about avocados - (buy them  green and ripen at home) - also applies to Anjou pears  which to my way of thinking are far tastier than Bartlett.  Pears bruise ever so easily. They must be handled with  great care, but even when you see bruises on the more  mature pears, remember it is only skin deep.  Have a heart - be easy on yourself.  by Bill Edney  It looks as though an open-  air market for Gibsons will be  opening this spring on Saturdays. We expect to see a wide  variety of arts, crafts, food and  music.  It is a good opportunity for  those unemployed to make  some money, although the  market is open to everyone. The  emphasis will be on home-made  and home-grown goods and  produce and it is hoped that  local musicians will also contribute their talents.  There should be little or no  cost to setting up and the event  promises to be colourful and interesting for the whole family.  A meeting is being held on  Saturday, March 9, 10:30 to  11:30 a.m. at the Unemployment Action Centre (above the  old Gibsons firehall) to organize  and discuss possible locations;  You may also phone  Deborah at 886-9251 after 8  p.m. If you have ideas for the  market, or if you grow or make  anything you'd like to sell,  please come along to the  meeting.  Child  restraints  in effect  Highways minister Alex  Fraser said today the province  has amended the Motor Vehicle  Act regulations to make approved safety restraints and  carseats mandatory for children  under six years of age.  The new regulations take effect March 1 and require that  youngsters be properly secured  when riding in a motor vehicle.  The new regulations require  that children weighing less than  nine kilograms (20 pounds) ride  in an approved portable, rear-  facing infant carrier properly attached to the motor vehicle's  seatbelt system.  Children weighing between  nine kilograms and 18  kilograms will have to be properly secured in an approved  child seat while they ride 'irV/ia  motor vehicle operated by their  parents or guardians. Some exemptions will be allowed for  medical reasons.  When these toddlers are  riding in someone else's motor  vehicle, the operator of that  vehicle will be responsible for  ensuring that the child is wearing either a seatbelt across the  lap or wearing another approved type of child restraint.  Approved safety restraints  must meet Canada Motor Vehicle safety standards.  Children weighting more  than 18 kilograms will be  covered by existing seatbelt  regulations. Drivers failing to  comply with the new regulations'  face fines of up to $100.  "Babies grow quickly and  some parents may be reluctant  to buy an approved carseat,"  said Fraser. "In these cases, I  would recommend that parents  get in touch with their local  health unit and ask about the  loaner and rental services  operated by some health units,  or service groups like the  Jaycettes, hospital auxiliaries  and the Registered Nurses'  Association of B.C."  For more information contact the Superintendent of  Motor Vehicles at 387-3140.  Schools  Continued from page 8  Jennifer Dodds reading a  brief prepared by Carol and  Brett McGillivray voiced a concern about the apparent swing toward private schools by  the government. "If the school  board were able truly to respond to the needs expressed by  parents, pupils and the public,  there would be no need for  other forms of schooling. More  decentralization and local  autonomy for school board  would make the schools more  responsive to the individual  needs."  Superintendent Denley  thanked the audience and  spokespeople for participating  in the forum process, "even  though you have had to suppress your frustrations enough  to respond". Denley mentioned  that there should really be a  commission into the subjects involved, and reiterated the  prevailing view that "people  need more time to synthesise the  information presented in order  to organize and present their  thoughts". 10.

Zefferelli has structured the  story in flashback with the dying Violetta remembering back  to the fateful party where she  met her great love Alfredo.  Looking frail, almost  bloodless, Teresa Stratas as  Violetta strikes a wonderful  balance   between   emotional  grandeur and physical  weakness. Placido Domingo offers an Alfredo of experienced  sophistication, instead of a  callow youth in over his head  with a woman of the world.  The film and Verdi's music  are a great joy and if you only  see one opera production in  your life make this the one.

If you lined it with high  buildings on either side and ran  a cable-car down the middle, it  would stack up pretty well  beside one of those precipitous  streets in the city where Tony  Bennett left his heart.  Today, School Road is  smoothly blacktopped and extensively populated. Only a few  patches of brush remain along  its steep length. Forty years ago,  things were quite different.  It was a warm fall day in  1945. The world is only two  months into the nuclear age, initiated by two mushroom clouds  over Japan that ended the  Pacific War. The course of  history has altered irrevocably  but few people are aware of the  fact beyond certain scientists,  generals and high-level politicians.  Such earth-shaking matters  are not of great concern to the  four teenagers who are walking  down School Road on this particular day. Their talk revolves  around more pertinent things  like film stars, risque novels and  the current Hit Parade songs.  They were all good-to-  exceptional students but their  recreational interests ran true to  peer-group form.  The two girls are among the  prettiest in the small high  school. One is dark-haired and.  sultry; the other is a striking  brunette. They both have smiles  that can bowl boys over at 10  paces. The sloppy-joe men's  shirts they are wearing like  smocks over skirts and bobby  socks, cannot disguise the fact  that they are constructed very  much as adolescent girls should  be.  The two boys who accompany them are not exactly the  sort you might expect to find  with young ladies of such sterling attributes. One is a skinny,  gangling  fellow  with  reddish  Undercover reviews  hair and a bad complexion. He  looks vaguely like Archie Andrews with acne. An acknowledged brain, he has a pompous  voice and a know-it-all manner.  The second boy is more  stockily built and not bad looking. But he suffers from a crippling self-consciousness that  often renders his words  unintelligible. He wears his hair  in a shabby cowlick over this  forehead to camouflage a few  pimples. He is hopelessly smitten with the brown-haired girl  but is far too craven to tell her  so. The dark-haired girl is the  one he should be vying for but  the boy is too foolish to see  beyond his cowlick.  The odd quartet continues on  down School Road hill, the  gravel crunching under their  shoes, past the old wooden  water-tank, past the odd  homestead hidden in the thick  brush, down the final, steepest  stretch and into the Landing  itself.  They proceed to the wharf  where the daily Union boat is  just pulling in. The red-haired  boy has engaged the dark-  haired girl in conversation. The  boy with the cowlick finds  himself briefly alone with the  brunette. It is his only chance.  Squirming with inarticulateness,  he blurts out something about a  date. With infinite diplomacy,  the brunette explains her many  prior commitments. The boy  with the cowlick retreats back  into this shell, effectively crushed.  The Union boat soons pulls  out. The four of them repair to  the Merry Ern Cafe at the  wharfhead, have a Coke  together and go their separate  ways.  And what is the point of  relating or even remembering  such a trivial incident?  The brown-haired girl went  on to marry, raise a family and  eventually write a novel, soon to  be published by Douglas &  Mclntyre. Her name is Mary  Rizzell nee Mary Slinn.  The dark-haired girl also  went on to marry, raise a family  and become a writer. She has  published several stories and  recently sold a script to the  CBC. Her name is Yvonne  Mearns Klan.  The boy with the cowlick lost  his cowlick and most of the rest  of it in time. He blundered  about aimlessly for years and  finally, more through luck than  good management, ended up  with the right girl. He too,  became a writer. He has  published six books of poems  and many stories. Three more  books are due out within the  foreseeable future. His name is  at the head of this column.  And what of the red-haired  boy who looked like Archie An- ���  drews? When last heard from,  he was a leading light in the  Young Conservatives. God  knows whatever became of him  after that. Maybe he's writing  speeches for Brian Mulroney.  His name has gone astray in the  mazes of memory.

The first part of the book looks  at the theories behind modern  conservation and ecology, and  the forces which have stirred up  the animal rights movements.  The second part looks at the  "20 year sealing war", the  history of hunting and trapping  in North America, the use of  animals in research, and the  issue of "factory farms".  The third section looks to a  future where "the rapid expansion of human population and  industrial technology spell  doom for wildlife and for the  natural environment upon  which we ultimately depend".  The book is based on  research and interviews, and  while a single book cannot be  expected to cover all the  material in an issue that is so  complex and so important,  Herscovici has at least prepared  a good primer on the subject.  There's a bibliography in the  back for those who want to read  more.

Both artists share an infectious  enthusiasm for printmaking,  and are concerned that the  public should know just what is  involved in the process and how  it differs from a reproduction.  As it is all quite confusing for  the novice, and because,  hopefully, knowledge increases  interest, here briefly are a few  facts about prints and print-  making.  First of all, what is the difference between a print and a  reproduction? An original print  is an image that has been conceived by the artist as a print  and executed solely as a print,  usually in a numbered edition,  and signed by the artist. Each  print in the edition is an  original, printed from a plate,  stone, screen, block or other  matrix created for that purpose.  There is no one original print  from which copies are made.  Each print is inked and pulled  individually; it is a multi-  original medium.  The number of prints in the  edition is decided by the artist.  The sequential numbering provides an accounting for the  number of prints in the edition.  Each print has a specific  number; i.e. 12/25 (the edition  is 25, the particular print is  numbered 12).  There is no greater or lesser  value attached to a low  numbered print than a high  nurnbered print since each print  is inked individually and is an  original (except in the case of  drypoint where parts of the  plate become worn upon use.)  A reproduction (although  often called a print) has no relationship whatsoever to an  original print. It is a copy of a  work of art conceived by the artist in;another medium (painting, watercolour, etc.). The  reproduction has usually been  made. :by photo-mechanical  means. Numbering and signing  a reproduction does not change  its essence; it is still a reproduction of a painting, watercolour,  etc. It is not an original print.  Now for the different kinds  of prints. There are three principal classes of print: the relief  print (woodcut, woodengrav-  ing, metalcut and lino-cut) in  which the white areas are cut  away so that the, parts of the  block that are left print black;  the intaglio print (etching,  engraving, drypoint, messotint,  stipple and aquatint) in which a  metal plate is incised or  roughened, inked and wiped so  that the ink remains in the incisions or hollows and is forced  out by being printed under  pressure; the lithograph (and  sometimes screenprinting) is  classified as a "surface print".  The prints of Peter Braune  are all lithograghs and col-  lagraphs. Lithography is based  on the fact that grease and  water repel each other.  Anything drawn on a suitable  surface in some greasy medium  can be printed in the following  way: the surface is first  dampened with water, which  only settles on the unmarked  areas since it is repelled by the  greasy drawing medium. The  surface is then rolled over with  greasy printing ink, which will  only adhere to the drawn  marks, the water repelling it  from the rest of the surface.  Finally, the ink is transferred to  a sheet of paper by running  paper and the printing surface  together through a press.  Collagraphs are the newest  form of printing. Although they  come under the intaglio  category, frequently the printing plate is not metal, but any  material which will withstand  the pressure of a press. Briefly  collagraphy can be defined as a  block in which a design or pattern is built up in the manner of  a collage and then printed.  Cindy Buis includes etchings,  collagraphs (both already  described) and screenprints in  her display. Screenprinting, a  very varied and popular process  is a variety of stencil printing. A  gauze screen, fixed tautly on a  rectangular wooden frame, is  laid directly on top of a sheet of  paper. Printing ink is spread  over the upper side of the mesh  and forced through it with a  rubber blade so that it transfers  to the paper on the other side.  The screen is usually of silk (in  America the process is usually  called silk-screen or serigraphy).  SCRD debates  shopping locally  "We pay lip service to the  Economic Development Commission and the Sunshine Coast  Employment Development  Society (SCEDS) but there is no  policy to support local companies," said Director Ian  Vaughan, at the February 28  meeting of the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD)  board. He was referring to a letter which had been received  from Donny Patterson of the  Sunsoft Centre, who complained that the company had not  had an opportunity to bid on  the supplying of computers to  the Provincial Emergency Program (PEP).  The company has always had  an expectation that they would  be asked to bid and because of  that had supplied consultations  and use of equipment free of  charge. As a consequence of not  being asked to bid, Sunsoft has  sent the SCRD a bill for these  services.  "The SCRD consistently  buys off the Coast," Director  Vaughan continued, and went  on  to  move  that  the  SCRD  adopt a policy of purchasing  goods and services locally if  they are appropriate and at  equivalent to off-Coast prices.  The motion was carried,  although in discussion Director  John Burnside pointed out that  recent purchases of automotive  equipment had been made on  the Coast, and Chairman Jim  Gurney said that it was board  practice though not policy, to  try to do so.  "Had these people been approached and asked to bid,"  said Director Jon McRae, "we  would not be in this position  now." The board agreed that  the bill should be examined and  Chairman Gurney also commented that perhaps the staff at  Sunsoft had assumed that the  SCRD staff were using the computers, when in fact, it was only  the PEP co-ordinator who did  so.

Rental  library  Free public libraries  developed in the last century as  a means of putting good books  into the hands of the working  man and woman who could not  ordinarily afford them. The  libraries were so successful that  today we assume that a library,  along with schools and churches, will be a basic institution  of every community. But in the  last few years, a new kind of  library���patterned after the  video distributing centres���has  been developing in the United  States. It's the rental library,  and last week the first one was  established on the Sunshine  Coast at The Bookstore in  Sechelt. Instead of paying a fee  to join the library, the "renter"  pays a fee for each book he  takes out.

Minor baseball  Gibsons minor baseball is fast  approaching another season.  Our first year being associated  with B.C. Minor Baseball was  an all round success, as local  teams represented Gibsons well  in the provincial play-offs.  Last year saw 32 teams from  Gibsons to Pender Harbour of  boys and girls from six to 16  compete locally and in Vancouver.  Pender Harbour looks to be  the hotspot of baseball at the  moment, with possibly three  new teams entering the league in  different divisions.  Gibsons reportedly will have  expansion in their Pony Division 13 to 14 year olds and  possibly T-Ball six to nine year  olds.  Sechelt is hoping to maintain  the same teams as last year, but  parental participation in all  levels at coaching, umpiring and  administration is desperately  needed to ensure that these  children will have an opportunity to play, and compete.  If anyone has any uniforms  (old or new), ball equipment or  trophies, minor ball would appreciate them.

There are a  number of people that deserve a  lot of credit for making this  year's "Sunshine Spiel" the success that it was.  First of all, Jean Rowledge  for her wonderful decorations  that really brightened the old  rink up; Ron Baba and Howie  Larsen and kitchen crew for a  v superb dinner Saturday night  and their constant attendance  during the spiel helping clean  the ice and work upstairs.  A big thanks to Bobby Emerson for 12 hours of kitchen duty  Saturday. Thanks also to  Maureen Sadler, Jean  Rowledge, Lou Niven and  Helen Sallis for their hand knitted sweaters and quilted silk  vest.  A very special thank you  from all 100 ladies attending the  spiel to Ken Stewart, David  Nestman, Alex Skytte, Danny  Nestman and Larry "Bongo"  Knowles for providing us with  so many laughs Saturday night.

Prior to Lockstead's speech,  the NDP Club passed three  resolutions to be taken to the  up-coming provincial convention. The first asks that  mariculture and, more importantly, salmon enhancement,  programs receive money,  technical expertise and  sophisticated training in order  to ensure short and long term  employment on the Sunshine  Coast.  The second calls for the  dissolution of the B.C. Ferry  Corporation and the ferry services' incorporation into the  Department of Highways; and  the third calls for a declaration  of British Columbia as a  nuclear-weapons-free zone,  similar to New Zealand and  Greenland.  On the business of the  legislature, Lockstead said:  "In spite of the new tone of  co-operation, the government  has programs they'll pursue for  better or for worse; they are  C-tureli  THE UNITED CHURCH  OF CANADA  Sunday Worship Services  ST.

Several members were very  upset by Bob Skelly (provincial  leader of the NDP) and his  failure to take the premier to  task over the proposed MLA  pay increase.  Helen Roy said, "It was a  shameful day when the NDP  voted with the Socreds on the  raise," and continued to point  out that the "grass roots people  who are NDP supporters" are  the people suffering most from  restraint and unemployment.  However, it was argued by  several other members that the  NDP has never supported the  Socred restraint program,  which was largely created as a  public relations program by  Patrick Kinsella, so that accepting restraint in this instance  would be lending credence to  the program.  Education cut-backs, concessions to the forest industry and  the state of B.C. Hydro were  also topics of discussion. On  education, Lockstead pointed  out that the amended Public  School Act has confiscated  commercial and industrial tax  bases for education, and that in  1976, the province paid 46 per  cent of the total school budget,  whereas now, when the burden  rests mainly on the shoulders of  the residential taxpayer, it pays  only 32.1 per cent of the total  budget.  Although the government insists that the education budget  has actually risen, figures do not  take into account the 26 per cent  inflation rate since 1981.  As far as concessions to the  forest industry, an important  consideration in this area,  Lockstead said that they won't  be known until the budget is  brought down, but it is  suspected that a decrease in the  cost of water licences may be  part of the package; water  licences have risen 1,000 per  cent since 1981 and a decrease  would enable companies to keep  operations alive.  There is a possibility that the  per kilowatt hour rate would be  reduced for companies such as  MacMillan Bloedel to 1.3 cents  per kw hour, whereas residential users pay 5 cents per kw  hour. The NDP sees these concessions as evidence of the  Socred's preferential treatment  of major corporations.  The exorbitant rates that  Hydro is proposing are due, said  Lockstead, to their ten year  forecast being badly out of line;  projects such as the Revelstoke  Dam and the Cheekeye-  Dunsmuir Line have created a  huge surplus of power that  hydro is now unable to sell,  leaving the taxpayer and hydro  user with the bill, which, in the  case of the Cheekeye-Dunsmuir  Line will be as high as $1.2  billion (as opposed to the  original projections of $350  million.)  The legislature meets again  on March 4 and Lockstead  assured the NDP members that  the party would be vocal in its  push for job creation.

Suffice  to say that of all the countries I  have visited in my peregrinations around the globe, this  jewel of an island stands out in  my memory as the most spectacular and magnificent of them  all.  Once again, due to the  shallowness of the harbour, we  were forced to drop anchor a  few hundred yards off from the  main docks of Colombo, the  capital and main port, but there  was no hardship in getting  ashore as we were soon surrounded by boats of all shapes  and sizes, while the lighters  (barges) that were unloading  our cargo of salt maintained an  incessant shuttle service between  ship and shore.  After our talk in his cabin  Captain Craig, probably realizing that it would make no difference one way or the other,  revoked his order that I remain  on the ship while she was in port  so I was free on my off-duty  hours to wander at will. Much  to my surprise and possibly his,  I stayed reasonably sober during the less than a week it took  to unload our ship.  On my first venture ashore,  accompanied by a half dozen of  my shipmates, we headed as  usual for the first bar which  happened to be in the Imperial  Hotel, an imposing structure a  short distance from the dock  area. Much to our disgust we  were refused admittance since  we, according to the husky individual at the door, were improperly dressed. Apparently a  collar and tie were required to  gain entry. The weather being  very warm, most of my companions were wearing T-shirts but  I had on a white shirt and, being  on the obstinate side, simply  went up a side street and bought  a tie while my friends drifted  elsewhere in search of some cool  beverages to slake their parched  throats.  I didn't remain long in the  majestic surroundings of the  Imperial as their prices were too  steep and I felt rather out of  place among the clientele dressed in their impeccable white  linen suits. However, I was  there long enough to be utterly  entranced by the most breath-  takingly beautiful women I have  ever seen in my life. Whether  they were their wives, daughters  or mistresses I will never know  but they were mainly Eurasians,  possibly a mixture of Sinhalese  and white and there is only one  word to describe them and that  is fantastic. I might add they  were also unobtainable unless  one had an income far exceeding that of a lowly cook on  a freighter.  There was another aspect pertaining to the Imperial with its  whirring fans and white coated  attendants catering to the  whims of the wealthy and that  was the stark poverty of the  emaciated wretches who, less  than a block away, were huddled in doorways and sleeping on  newspapers. The contrast was  overwhelming, but there was little I could do about it short of  giving some of the more importunate a few annas to relieve  their misery.  On another trip ashore I  made the acquaintance of a  Sinhalese girl who worked at the  Seamen's Hostel and she persuaded me to make the journey  out to Kandy to see one of the  largest Buddhist temples in the  world. It reportedly housed a  sacred relic in the form of one  of Buddha's teeth. She accompanied me and, once again, I  cannot find the words to  describe the lushness of the  countryside and beauty of the  temple once we got there. I  think I must have had a few too  many beers before we started as  I got completely carried away  by it all and, on the way back in  a taxi, I got so amorous I proposed to her, forgetting for the  moment I already had a wife  back in Canada. It is fortunate  she didn't take me seriously  and, notwithstanding the fact  that I also propositioned her,  we still remained good friends  until the ship departed.  I made one more excursion  before I fell from grace and that  was a visit to one of the many  bazaars in the city where I not  only saw the natives at work but  bought a carving called an  "Elephant Bridge", consisting  of six rosewood elephants of  varying sizes mounted on a  curved bridge. I paid 20 rupees  for it, which at three rupees to  the dollar was the equivalent of  less than $7.1 still have it and it  is not for sale although several  years ago I had offers of up to  $200 for it.  In both the bazaars and on  board ship there was a lively  trade going on in precious and  semi-precious stones as Ceylon,  with the exception of diamonds,  emeralds and opals, is rich in all  of them.  Naturally one Has to be wary  as many of us were taken in by a  glittering array of so-called  jewels that proved later, on examination by an expert, to be  highly polished coloured glass.  However, our bosun (I have  forgotten his name), bought  what was represented as an uncut, pear shaped sapphire for a  pendant and several smaller  stones which could be used as a  bracelet. He paid 100 rupees for  the set which was roughly $33.  They were intended as a gift for  his girl-friend in Vancouver, but  when we eventually arrived  back in our home port he learned to his sorrow that she had  taken up residence with another  man. In disgust, he dumped the  Japanese tea-set he had bought  her in Yokohama over the side  and took the stones from  Ceylon to Birks for an appraisal. They were genuine sapphires all right and he sold them  to Birks for $1,000!  One might term it a wonderful investment but little good it  did him. I met him less than a  week later on Cordova Street  and he was completely broke.  The wine, the women and the  song had taken their toll and I  had to give him $10 to get rid of  him. But that's all in the life of  a sailor!  Police News  Continued from page 16  Assorted tools and fishing  gear were* taken. The break-in  could have occurred between  September 1984 and February  25,1985.  A Redrooffs Road residence  was reported broken into on  February 28. Camera equipment valued at $895 was taken.  Also taken were an eiderdown  quilt valued at $125 and an  unknown quantity of jewelry.  Gas was syphonned from a car  parked overnight on Redrooffs  Road. The theft of gas was  reported on February 26.   v y!  On February 28,an outbolird  Evinrude motor valued at $650  and a floater jacket were  reported stolen from a boat  moored in the Secret Cove area.

The victim exited from the  ditch and followed the erratic  driver north bound until the  suspect vehicle stopped in the  Roberts Creek Road area.  When the erratic driver was approached by the victim, he  assaulted him. The victim did  sustain injuries from the motor  vehicle accident.  On February 25, police arrested Michael David Poisson  of Garden Bay as he was attempting to defraud B.C.  Telephone with a void calling  card at the Langdale Ferry Terminal.

Please turn to page 15  UFA WU wants moratorium  Continued from page 1  along with Envirocon economic  consultant Valerie Collier. The  two Envirocon representatives  presented comprehensive briefs  on present scientific advances in  the cultivation of seafood products and necessary financial  approaches to be considered by  the prospective aquaculturist.  Envirocon economist Valerie  Collier stressed the importance  of preparing a comprehensive  business plan outline before approaching financial institutions  for aquaculture funding, listing  some of the concerns that a  financier would consider important: management experience of  the prospective fish farmer;  uncertain  markets;   status   of  property rights attached to  licences and leases; recent  failures in the industry; lack of  confidence in the investment  return time; disease control in  product; limited government  guarantees on aquaculture  loans.  "It is very difficult to convince financial institutions that  aquaculture is a good venture,"  said Collier. "They know very  little about the industry.  Government financial assistance  programs are not known by the  banking community or the fish  farmers themselves."  Ms Collier again made  reference to the well established  Norwegian aquaculture industry.    "The   co-operative  aspect of the Norwegian industry combined with strong  government backing for  research and development are  main reasons for its success,"  said Collier. "We can only  dream about the quality Norway is getting in its products,"  she added, indicating that Norway has already developed  strong effective distribution  channels. "B.C. fish farmers  are suffering from a lack of  marketing research.  Ms Collier warned that future  market trends in the industry  are hard to predict.  "The European salmon industry faces the possible threat  of ultimate overproduction in  Resignation sought  Continued from page 1  tions, saying that he was not in  . charge of setting up the house-  numbering meeting. As for the  Capilano College issue, he said,  "What I did was within the  Municipal Act. It needed immediate action so I took it."  "That dictatorial approach  prompts my motion," said  Director McRae, who also said  that in his opinion the purchase  of the building did not require  action so immediately that time  for a proper meeting was not  available. ���-"-   Administrator Larry Jardine  pointed out to board members  that, although a motion requesting the chairman to resign  might carry, the chairman is not  thereby compelled to resign.  The McRae-Vaughan motion  requesting the chairman's  resignation did carry by a  weighted vote of 10 to nine.  Directors McRae, Vaughan,  Burnside, and Kolibas voted in  favour of the motion. Directors  -Gurney,-Shaske, McGillivray;  and Connor opposed the motion. Under the weighted voted  system each director has one  vote for each thousand people  represented or fraction thereof.  Chairman Jim Gurney  responded by saying that he  would announce his decision at  the next board meeting, quipping, "I'd welcome the rest". He  declined to comment when approached by the Coast News the  next day.  House-numbering debate  Continued from page 1  "Received by the SCRD" date  stamp) asked that he be invited  to meet with the board on  February 14, the day of the  regular SCRD meeting, this  meeting did not take place, and  to date, Mr. Roy has not had  the opportunity to answer any  criticism or explain any potential problems inherent in his  system.  Director Vaughan,  addressing the question, said, "I have  walked around Area "A", and  can see that in some areas it may  be expensive to implement, but  the problems can be ironed out.  The board has bought the  system," he continued, "Let's  deal with it."  Both Directors Joyce Kolibas  and Jon McRae expressed support for the Roy system, saying  that, since the board already has  the system, why not now work  on its implementation  A critique prepared by Chairman Jim Gurney was placed  before the board, but tabled until Roy has had a chance to  speak. Director John Burnside  suggested that the SCRD Planning staff report, prepared at the  request of the board, and the  Gurney critique be forwarded to  Mr. Roy, "without delay" so  that he would have ample time  to study them and prepare a  reply.  1990 of double the projected  European demand."  Hans Penner, Solidarity ad-  vodate and member of the joint  council of local unions also  presented a list of the council's  view on aquaculture.  "We don't see fish farming as  an answer to unemployment,"  said Penner, "and we would oppose the use of public subsidies  for fish farming, including the  amost exclusive use of the  economic development commissioner, a publicly funded position," he added.  "We would encourage the  combination of fisheries and  foresty as a whole and we would  advocate stream enhancement  because it is more labour intensive," he concluded.  John Struthers a consultant  working for the Employment  Development Society stressed  the air of desperation surrounding the Society's bid to get 850  to 1000 jobs of any sort activated before there is an outward migration of people from  the coast. "I doubt if we will see  a huge direct job impact from  the aquaculture industry here  on the coast," said Struthers.  On a more positive note Syd  Heal of the Sunshine Coast  Aquaculture Assocation,  himself involved in oyster  culture, took the emphasis off  the salmon aspect of the debate.  "If we took the attitude that  there should be a moratorium  on aquaculture, where would  we be?" said Heal. "I doubt if a  single wild oyster finds its way  to the market place," he said,  "almost every oyster is a  cultured oyster." Mr. Heal indicated that the technology is  now availa ble to extend the  oyster growing season by up to  four months with a growing  season stretching from April to  September.  "We see ourselves as conservationists not hunters," said  Heal. "Employment is not the  issue."  _   TAX SERVICE  Income Tax Preparation  BASIC RETURN        $13.00  CHILD TAX CREDITS 8.00  Hours:     Tues.  FAIRVIEWRD.
