Array .v/fcv Ixjf  g_.i^.  by Dianne kvans  Art Lee, leader of the B.C. Liberal Party, was in Gibsons last week and attended a dinner at Andy's  Restaurant. Here, watched by Frank Greenwood, president of the Mackenzie riding Liberal Association,  Lee thanks local members for their gift of a Sunshine Coast souvenir, presented by emcee Joe Benner.  Wayne Nesbitt, president of the Comox/Powell River riding association was also present as was  organizer Dana Lamb. ��� ���Dianne Evans photo  "This is the greatest time to  be a Liberal. What the people  want  and  need  is  a sound,  ���> reasonable,   pragmatic,   com-  ; monsense approach to govern-  v ment" is how Art Lee summed  v up his speech to a gathering of  ; some 50 fellow Liberals at a  fund-raiser dinner last Thursday  night in Gibsons, and he echoed  , these ideas throughout his visit.  Leader of the B.C. Liberal  > Party, Lee. was on the. Sunshine  ��� Coast for a two day visit last  ���>' week, lunching with both the  i mayors and aldermen, breakfasting   with   the   Sechelt  (Chamber of Commerce, paying  ]:a visit to the Sechelt  Indian  Band and speaking with  the  , local media.  "What the Liberals endorse is  ^what you could call free enterprise of the heart," Lee told the  Coast News in an interview on  Thursday   afternoon.    "Now  there is disenchantment with the  Socreds  everywhere   I   travel,  and there's a large amount of  r skepticism with the NDP. Peo-  ..ple remember how they shattered   investor   confidence   in  72-75."  Lee sees as one of the most  immediate problems the large  number of unemployed and  those living far below the poverty line on welfare that is inadequate to meet their needs.  "The first thing is to increase  welfare rates, but also to improve the professionalism and  delivery of the servjce," Lee  said, "Right now those people  are social pariahs, there's no  dignity involved.  "We must create more jobs  to make the economy move  again," he continued.  "Forestry, mining, fisheries, the  husbanding of our natural  resources instead of the laissez-  faire attitude that has prevailed  in the province is the way we  must go.  "If we were to spend another  $200 million a year on silviculture,, the replanting of our  forests, we would create  thousands of new jobs, now.  We have to learn to apply the  new technology too," Lee said.  He pointed to Cominco at Trail  where the most modern smelter  of zinc in Canada is located.  One of the best pulpmills in  North America is at North wood  and Lee sees the use of state of  . the art methods in secondary industry as a way of keeping our  primary resources viable.  "We can do it in B.C.," he  said. "We can use computers to  show us how to cut a better tree,  to use every log to the full. We  can build value-added knockdown furniture as they do in  Osqyoos."  The first job of the Liberals,  were they to assume power in  the province, would be re  reverse what the Socreds have  set in motion, says Lee.  * They have tried to centralize  everything to the detriment of  local government," he. said;  "The regional districts should  have a lot to-say about plannV  ing; things that affect the community.  "One of the best examples of  this is the Islands Trust, which  the Socreds have emasculated,"  Lee continued, "i believe it is  because Victoria wants to totaU  ly control the foreshore leases'.*  They are^ afraid that local  government would balk evefy  effort made to develop, but;j[  don't believe that's so."        ,;"  Lee talked of Bill 62, ya  revamping of the Municipal  Act, saying that while it  streamlined many of the pro-;  cesses involved in getting  development approved it has  opened the door to special  legislation, for special circumstances, such as the Mc-*  Barge project in False Creek.  "Municipalities would be  allowed to waive public hearings in certain cases," he explained. "If the proposal fits in  with the overall settlement plan,  then the municipality can approve without public hearing.  Of course, to get approval fori  community plans they have to  Please turri to page 19  On Sechelt restructuring  Committee wants referendum  by Fran Burnside  The Sechelt restructuring  : corrirnittee,.?v hasfeptfjciali jsgsjg*  quested'"that"the minister of  municipal affairs hold a public  referendum so that residents  may decide whether regional  Area C and part of Area B  should amalgamate with Sechelt  to become a district municipality.  The committee's recommendation that a referendum be  held received support from newly appointed Deputy Minister of  Municipal Affairs Chris Woodward at a recent meeting in  Sechelt, at which Woodward  reviewed various areas of  responsibility which would be  affected   should   restructuring  Last week the Ted Dixon Memorial Park was officially dedicated  and an all-day soccer tournament took place to celebrate.

Draft Letters Patent defining  the organization and operation  of the new district municipality  are currently being drawn up in  Victoria, and Woodward gave  the committee his thoughts both  on what they will and what they  should contain, which the committee reviewed last Wednesday.  In the area of planning,  Woodward recognized the importance of establishing acceptable community or settlement  plans, and the fact that they  would take at least a year to  complete. He suggested that,  until completed, the Letters Patent could give a statement of  priority,   guidelines    and    a  framework for setting up advisory committees to deal with  rezprung applications, as at pre-  ���vdf'ritiyrio. rezoning-could^.Qceur.  without' a public hearing. He  suggested that an outside firm  which could devote full time to  a settlement plan should be  hired with which the committee  agreed, and felt the new  municipality would not require  a full-time planner arid staff in  the long run.  An area of some contention is  the responsibility for roads.  When restructuring was first  considered several years ago,  the department of highways  undertook the upgrading of  some secondary roads within  the district municipality, but  that has now been phased out  and there is now only a three to  five year maintenance period.  Highways will not even consider capital items such as new  paving and roadbed improvements when assessing  grants, and Woodward agreed  that the grants offered appear  inadequate. He offered to talk  to highways staff himself, and  the committee is following up  his suggestion and trying to arrange a joint meeting with the  ministers of highways and  municipal affairs during the up-  Canfor  coming Union of B.C.  Municipalities (UBCM) convention in Vancouver.  The committeej:eiterated,.the,  importance of the upgrading by  highways of both Wharf Road  (Highway 101) and Trail  Avenue before restructuring, so  that subsequent grants for road-  work could be primarily used in  the newly incorporated areas. It  recognized that there is no  chance of highways amending  its grant program, but hoped it  may be able, to do some extra  work in addition to its regular  work instead.  Woodward noted that the  minister will likely recommend  that the new municipality take  over responsibility for sewers  and for water distribution (but  not supply). In discussing  whether this should be included  in the Letters Patent, dissenting  opinions came from committee  member Peggy Connor (Director, Area B), who felt the sewer  system is better served by the  regional board, and from committee Chairman Andrew  Steele, who felt such a decision  should be left for the new council of the district municipality.  The committee as a whole  decided to recommend that the  sewer system be taken over by  the new municipality with the  effective date to be set by the  minister,. Anne.tPressley (Sechelt  alderman) noted that there  would be no extra expense involved in assuming this responsibility. .  Committee member Bud  Koch felt that water distribution  should also be included in the  Letters Patent "to make a complete package" with the council  of the new municipality having  the ability to decide when to  take over the function, but the  committee decided to leaye  water distribution out of ttje  Letters Patent and to leave that  decision for the new council at a  later date.  "The draft Letters Patent  must be a clear indication to  people of what they're, voting  for or against," stressed Chairt  man Steele. '.  Policing costs to the new;  municipality remain an uncer-  tainty, as the 1986 census would  have to determine if the population of the new municipality  would be 5,000 or more, in  which case it would have to  assume full policing costs within  three years.

Of the 227  eligible voters,  more that 140 turned out to vote  on two questions. The first, asking if the members approve of  the Sechelt  Band constitution  being   used   as   a   negotiating  document for the achievement  of self-government, saw a vote  of  139  in  favour,   five  votes  against and one rejected ballot.  The second question  asked  whether the members agree with  the Band's assuming control of  its own membership based on  membership rules which were  made available to voters. In this  vote, 137 voted in favour, three  voted against and one ballot  was rejected.  The results, which show  strong support for both questions, will be used to re-inforce  the Band's case with the  Minister of Indian Affairs,  David Crombie, and to get the  Band's self-government legislation before Federal cabinet this  fall.  Dr. Audrey Doerr, liaison  person appointed by Crombie  to bring together the departments of Justice, Finance and  Indian  Affairs,  met with  the  Chief and Councillors in Sechelt  on August 30.  "If we get special legislation  by November, it will have taken  exactly one year since we set the  wheels a-turning at our first  meeting with David Crombie,"  said Dixon. "You know, we are  probably the only ones who  haven't had a decent holiday  since we started this process  with the Ministry of Indian Affairs!  "But," Dixon said firmly,  "we shall not rest until our Act  is passed in the House of Parliament."  Recycling starts  This is Recycling week. Only recyclable items will be picked  up in Areas, B, C, D, E and F. See story on page   9.  "We are looking closely at  eliminating that line altogether,"  said Don Stewart, Technical  Supervisor at the Canfor mill in  Port Mellon, in conversation  with the Coast News last week  after an accidental spill of  bleaching effluent took place  during repair work.  Some 330,000 gallons of the  effluent escaped into the water  of Howe Sound after a valve  was left open during repair  work to the bleaching system.  According to Stewart there was  a breakdown in communications and the person who had  opened the valve was not the  person to start up the bleaching  process on the next shift.  "We have discussed this with  the Environmental Protection  Service (EPS)" said Stewart,  "and they have given us some  requirements for a full report.  They will be inspecting it fully."  Stewart said that repairs in  the future could be done in a  way which would allow the  valve to be permanently disabled.  "This was a short term problem, maybe lasting an hour  and a half," Stewart explained,  "it was corrected immediately it  was discovered. So far we have  collected about 10 dead fish,  even though it seems certain  that more were involved.  "It was hard to find the fish  because the problem occurred  during the night," he continued. "It appears as though it  was small fish that were affected,   because   we   haven't  found any larger ones, although  there were a lot of sea-gulls,  around the next morning."  The effluent elimination at  Port Mellon was completely  revamped in 1981, according to  Stewart. All the effluent from  various processes are now combined together which neutralises  it to a great extent; it is then  dispersed over a wide area, with  a very high dilution ratio. The  line which caused the problem is  no longer used, although it is  still hooked up into the system:  r  5th Terry Fox run  The fifth annual Terry Fox run will take place in Gibsons  on Sunday September 15.

Coast News, September 9,1985  /T  First step  A partial victory it may be seen to be by the peace movement, but nonetheless there is much to be thankful for in  Prime Minister Mulroney's decision to disengage himself  and us from Ronald Reagan's Star Wars.  We congratulate the Prime Minister on the decision.  The birth of a child to Prime Minister Mulroney and his  wifelast week reminds us that there is a younger leadership  emerging in the world. Perhaps along with aging leaders  we can begin to discard aging concepts and stances and  find hope for ourselves and for our children.  As the Chinese say: "The journey of 1,000 miles begins  with but a single step." Perhaps last week saw Canada  take such a step.  A temporary  problem  "It was a temporary problem," said the Canfor  spokesman, "lasting only one hour and a half."  Perhaps. Certainly it wasn't temporary for the killed  fish or the birds who ate them.  The next war may last one hour and a half and be a temporary problem. The consequences, however, will be more  lasting.  We recognize Canfor's attempts to reduce ecological  damage. Last week's incident was a reminder of the need  for constant vigilance where lethal chemicals are concerned.

Musings  John Burnside  Two movies last week, as the  usually hectic pace of meetings,  rehearsals tor what-haye-you let  up briefly;. Two movies, poles  apart in sensiblity. First, The  Emerald Forest.  Like most of us, I know a little about the depredations being  made in the Amazonian jungles.  I have heard about Amazonian  Indians whose first contact with  what we speak of as civilization  has come with the crashing  bulldozers which are destroying  the habitat in which they have  lived since the world was young.  More recently on the radio I  heard of a tribe of Indians in  Central America who are facing  extinction. These 'primitives'  have been tilling the leached and  shallow soil of the rain forest  for millenia, preserving the.soil  by means of tremendously intricate crop rotation .involving  more than eighty different  crops.  The bulldozers have arrived  there too and the chemical fertilizers and pesticides. The result  is a bumper crop or two and  then soil collapse. Meanwhile  the people who have been keeping the soil fertile for thousands  of years are down to one or two  hundred survivors and it still  doesn't seem to have occurred  to anyone that perhaps we have  something to learn from them.  So to the movie. Based on a  true story, the film was a moving and evocative glimpse of the  world through the eyes of a gentle jungle people. Not simple-  minded mind you. The tribe of  Invisible People, as they were  called, did live in a state of grace  of gentleness and caring and  sharing, but the jungles held the  Fierce People, too, an Indian  tribe whose happiest moments  Enemy within  came when they could catch and  eat the Invisible People.  Then there were of course,  the Termite People. The whites  who came and 'ate the grandfather trees'. As a small band of  the Invisible People contemplated the bulldozed bare  earth encroaching on their  jungle one of them asked:  "They have skinned the land.  How do they expect it to  breathe?"  In the simplicity of the  foregoing precis there is the risk  of leaving an impression of a  comic-book tale but there is a  powerful and despairing quality  about the film. These are people  who are intelligent and know  and respect their world. They  live in harmony with it.  The difficulty is that we of  the Judaic-Christian, post Industrial Revolution cultures  believe that there is no other  way but our way. So armed are  we with philosophic certainty  and arrogance and industrial  might that we kill cultures as  thoughtlessly as we would a  garden slug, unaware for the  most part that those cultures  contain the seeds of wisdom  from which we could draw great  strength.  We pollute, ravage and  destroy with no regard for the  delicate balances which make  life itself possible. Where we  find a people still living in harmony with the natural world we  dismiss them as 'primitives'.  Since we see ourselves as  purveyors of the one cosmic  truth and the world is ours to  rearrange as we see fit, we trample without thought older and  more stable and enduring cultures more in tune with survival  than our rampant destructive  ways.  If they are different from us  they must change, we say, while  the oceans of the world grow  yearly more polluted, the oxygen exhaling trees go down and  the lakes and rivers of our own  continent begin to die before  our mindless and greedy  onslaughts.  The other movie was better  attended, I'm afraid. Thunder-  dome succeeds in making a  cliche out of a post nuclear  world. It lacked credibility entirely. In one sequence a horse  dies of exhaustion in the desert  but a spry fourteen-pound  monkey who has covered the  same ground hauling behind it a  water bottle as big as itself arrives bright-eyed and untired to  save the hero's life.  Ostensibly an anti-war movie,  every second reel had some head  being smashed or groin kicked.  Every dispute, resolved with  violence.  It is unfortunately a tale as  old as history. The gentle people  die. The warriors crash on. One  thinks of the Celts in Europe  driven to the inhospitable hills  by those who sought to take by  force what they needed rather  than coax it from the giving  earth; one thinks of the gentle  and beautiful Beothuks of Newfoundland, hunted down like  latter-day wolves by bounty  hunters till the last surviving  member of their people was  gone.  One watches the mindless  warriors armed as never before  growling and preparing to do  battle armed with weapons  beyond imagining. All who  would do otherwise are scorned.  Over the whole face of the globe  like a dreadful cosmic cancer  prowls the fierce and termite  people, looting, ravaging and  preparing to kill. "We have met  the enemy," said Pogo in a  long-ago comic strip, "and they  is us." Indeed, indeed.  Poem  / go wild  At the sound of thunder.  I go wild  At a touch of rain.  And when sunrise follows dawn  And when shadows linger on,  I go wild--  I go wild again.  I believe  Somewhere is a garden.  I believe  Somewhere is a shore.  And as every passing stream  Flashes on my world of dream,  I believe--  I believe once more.  Maryanne's    viewpoint  I..R. Peterson  Appreciating what we have  by Maryanne West  It's always interesting to hear  the objective comments from  visitors about the Sunshine  Coast - so often what we tend to  take for granted fills them with  enthusiasm and delight, and I  read with interest the letter of a  Vancouver business man sometime last month.  His theme was that we might  be in danger of letting the Sunshine Coast become just  another trourist trap with fast  food chains and gimmicks of  one sort and another designed  to part the tourist from his buck  rather than add to the amenities  for residents.  "I saw so much about the  area that is absolutely magnificent," he wrote, "things which  I believe if maintained will contribute to the steady growth of  tourism over the long term  without 'tackifying' the landscape. I see in the Sunshine  Coast things of wonderful  character which I believe to be a  reflection of the people...The  best approach would be to focus  on those things which make you  unique."  This is what many people  have been saying for many  years, asking local government  to help provide the facilities  which the residents need, so that  when the word gets around that  exciting things are happening  here, the visitors would inevitably come and, and this is  important, there would be  things for them to do besides  looking at the mountains and  ogling Molly's Reach, so that  they would want to stay a while.  In recent years there are indications that the residents are  leaving their elected representatives on the sidelines and doing these things for themselves  -and perhaps that's how it  should be.  We've had the B.C. Naturalists' annual meeting in Sechelt  courtesy of the Marsh Society;  the Writers' Forge has begun to  attract an annual pilgrimage of  writers to the coast; a most successful jazz festival has just concluded; sports organizations involved in tournaments attract  others and we have many other  groups of artists, actors, musicians and craftspeople who,  with a little help, could stage  similar events, enhancing the  entertainment for coast  residents and at the same time  bringing more people to the  area.  What happened to the Sechelt  Indian Band's reincarnation of  their traditional canoe races,  that seemed such a wonderful  idea?  As the Sechelts work towards  self government, they may find  some difficulty in finding  suitably qualified Native people  to fill the jobs which will be  created - a need which will be  shared by other Bands, and  might consider suggesting to  Capilano College an extension  run by Indians for Indian  students.  But all these activities, great  in themselves, are not the whole  story, the wild natural beauty of  the coast is what makes it such  an attractive backdrop for  residents and for visitors and  those who come to look and  want to stay will want to enjoy  the water, the mountains and  the forest.  We've made a start with such  accessible and attractive walking areas as Cliff Gilker Park,  (described by visitors as a gem  and better than Stanley Park,  presently of greater fame), and  Sechelt's new Kinnickinick  Park. This sort of easy access to  the woods - and as the roads  become busier there's a greater  need for such short walk  facilities to be supplemented by  mountain trails, suitable for  daylong or overnight hikes.  Those who are in contact with  visitors to our provincial parks  will tell you this is a frequent request, "where are the hiking  trails?"  A residents' committee to advise on sensitive ecological and  environmental issues might be  useful to the regional board and  those residents who feel strongly  about keeping the coast's  natural beauty unspoilt should  seriously consider running for  public office in November.  If all this sounds silly to you,  we are in good company. I read  with interest that San Fransisco  is coping with the same issue, on  a slightly different scale. San  Fransiscans want to keep their  city unique and are concerned  that developers and those promoting "instant progress" are  turning it into just another  Manhattan. Coast News, September 9,1985  #5  ���'-is  Editor:  Many years ago a man had a  dream. In business I believe the  word is "vision", and that  word, in business terms, has  many connotations; the money  myth, pursuit of power, and  lack of empathy for those who  stand in the way being only a  .few.  y But to continue: This man  ..ysaw and now owns an area of  ||,land in then virgin territory and  |f dreamed of harvesting the trees  contained therein when they  matured. At that time Sechelt  Inlet was sparsely inhabited and  ���very few people, other than  those directly involved, and  perhaps the odd bear, cougar or  eagle, would even be aware of  his project.  However, as the years rolled  by, more and more people happened on the area ie. the east  side of Sechelt Inlet and, for the  purpose of this letter, specifically Tuwanek. These people saw a  realization of their dreams; to  live in one of the most beautiful  areas of British Columbia, or at  least to come here on vacation  and enjoy the quiet beauty and  serenity. Now there is a sizeable  community of permanent  residents, swelled by vacationing part-time residents. Also  there are growing groups of  divers who take pleasure in the  easy access to the minimally  disturbed sea world under the  clear waters.  Can our government, be it  local or provincial, allow one  man's vision (which his dream  has become) to ride roughshod  over the dreams of so many  others? And if their dreams  become visions as well when  they consider the physical threat  to their properties caused by  possible floods or slides when  the area is disturbed; not to  mention the devaluation of their  investments���because if this  permit is granted, Tuwanek will  be hemmed in by two separate  log-booming sites, less than one  kilometre apart. Once again,  can our governments allow one  man's vision to over-ride the visions of so many others? Could  not  art  alternate site  further  away from habitation be found;  or an arrangement be made  with the proprietors of existing  booming areas?  I doubt very much that either  at the conception of his dream  or near the term of his vision,  was employment for the area a  contributing factor. If the permit is granted it will undoubtedly create employment for a few  bodies, but it will most certainly  negate this particular sector  from the burgeoning over-all  plan of tourism and recreation  for the Sunshine Coast. This  plan does and will benefit far  more people than the granting  of a permit for a foreshore lease  to Sunfor Logging Co. would  ever do.  Janet Nixon,  Tuwanek Ratepapers  Association member  Historical errors are corrected  Editor:  Re: Photo July 22, 1985 - Coast  News Pier B.C. and ships.  In answer to Mr. W.G.  Dolmage of Halfmoon Bay  with regard to the above picture  I can only say 'to err is human,  to forgive, divine'.  The photograph with my caption was indeed taken from the  roof top of the Stock Exchange  Building at Howe and Pender  Streets, not the Standard  Building earlier stated. It is now  simply dubbed 475 Howe  Street. The Hall Building on the  opposite corner is now the  Montreal Trust Building. I concede too, the Winch Building  was indeed erected by R.V.  Winch at a cost of $700,000, not  named after Ernie Winch and I  should have known better having passed in and out of its portals for three years, on a daily  basis. Wishful thinking on my  part perhaps thinking merging  of liberals Jimmy Sinclair and  the Winch socialists in 'Sinclair  Centre'. You don't buy that?  I can claim correctness in that  the ship at Pier B is one of the  white Empress' fleet. Three funnels not two. The Empress of  Japan was renamed the Empress of Scotland early in 1942  (after Japan entered the war),  and not the Empress of Ireland,  nor as you suggest the Empress  of Canada.  Finally, the following  passages are taken from the  volume Canadian Pacific  Afloat (by George Musk, A.M.  1NST.T., printed in October  1968; Vancouver Public  Library).  "During the war the CPR  lost many ships. The Pacific  Empresses did valuable work  during the 1939-45 war. The  Empress of Japan was renamed  Empress of Scotland in 1942  (after Japan entered the war).  After refitting in 1949 she  became the company's flag ship  on the North Atlantic and  returned to passenger service on  the Atlantic in 1950.  CPR's Maplecove and  Mapledell were freight ships  during the Korean conflict on  the run Vancouver-Yokohama-  Kobe- Man ila-Cebu- Hong  Kong, but proved uneconomical  and were returned to the Atlantic after a trial period during the  1950's."  Another volume tells the tale  of the Empress of Ireland having been lost in the St. Lawrence  in May of 1914 when she sank  after colliding with another  vessel. Loss of lives more than  1,000. I concur with Mr.  Dolmage that CPR would not  wish to name another ship Empress of Ireland, even today.  Please convey my thanks to  Mr. Dolmage for bringing these  discrepancies to the fore.  Richard F. Kennett  Happy windsurfers  Editor:  As a summer tourist and  part-time resident at Sakinaw  Lake, I would like to compliment the local merchants who  supported our windsurfing  regatta on Saturday, August 17.  If it were not for the goodwill  and generosity of these merchants, the many people who  participated would not have had  as much fun as they were all  able to go home with a small  prize.  With all of the enthusiasm  being expressed about the upcoming hordes of visitors expected with the invasion of Expo 86, it is important that the  local merchants do not forget  all of us repeat tourists who  have been coming to the area  for over 30 years. We spend a  lot of money in the area and appreciate the warmth and  friendliness of the following  merchants  because they care  about our business today and  are not just out to make a killing for one year.  Again hats off to the following merchants from the  Sakinaw Surf Sailing Regatta:  Madeira Park - IGA, The  Hayestack, Pender Harbour  Restaurant, Pender Harbour  Golf Club, Oak Tree Market,  Madeira Charters, Frances  Burgers, C.A. Lott House of  Gifts, A.C. Building Supplies,  Sakinaw Surf Sailing.  Sechelt - Morgan's Men's  Wear, Pharmasave, Trail Bay  Sports.  A special thank you to Royal  Hawaiian Sun Tan Cream for  all the frizbees and prizes they  provided.  It is the continued goodwill of  merchants such as the above  who make coming to the Sunshine Coast such an enjoyable  holiday.

Mr. Anthony Brummet  Minister of Lands, Parks  and Housing  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C.  V8U 1X4  Dear Sir:  I am writing in regards to the  license of occupation for a fish  farm that your ministry has  granted to Scantech Resources  Ltd. at Wood Bay on the  Sechelt Peninsula.  Your ministry has granted  this company a license of occupation to operate a fish farm  immediately adjacent to  residential homes. This was  done without the normal process of input from surrounding  property owners or our planners  and elected officials on our  regional board. I have been informed by a member of your  staff that this is a precedent setting way of granting a license.  As a resident affected by this  I protest the way in which this  license was approved.

These  people and myself will undoubtedly suffer financial losses  as the result of a decrease in our  property values caused by the  close proximity of this fish  farm.  This license of occupation is  for one year at this time.  Therefore it is still possible for  your ministry to correct this injustice. I and the other residents  request that you cancel this  license or at the very least not  extend it beyond its one year  term.  It would also seem sensible  that in the future when this type  of license is applied for the surrounding residents should be informed and allowed with their  local government officials to  have input into the process.  This would be a far more honest  and democratic way of dealing  with people and would  therefore avoid all the unnecessary conflict.  A reply to this letter with  some indication of your position on this matter would be  most appreciated.  M. Richardson  ���ffllillMHIfflilil  I'LL BE THERE!

(Lower Gibsons)  District. Thus funded, the  Regional Board - which has difficulty running meetings - will  run, under Solidarity's democratic control, a Development  Corporation to create union-  rate jobs putting in sewers, low-  rent housing, planting trees and  the like. No mention of paying  its way on behalf of taxpayers  elsewhere who funded it.  Solidarity then demands that  the Regional District take over  bankrupt L&K Lumber and expand it to become an integrated  forest products company,  silviculture through furniture  manufacture.  Aquaculture is to be  discouraged - this despite official projections of 9,500 full-  time aquaculture jobs by the  year 2000 on the B.C. coast,  with the Sunshine Coast likely  to be the centre of this new industry. There is a brief, prophetic mention of Tourism:  poverty could well become our  major attraction according to  Solidarity.  The issue is simple: do we  want unprofitable jobs with  unrealistic wages paid by taxpayers or do we want them  from vibrant, innovative investors who think the Sunshine  Coast is great?  The second issue is simple,  too: do we want Burnside,  Gurney and their Regional  District gang, who defend  Solidarity, to represent the interests of the minority who elect  them or the majority who do  not? There are local elections in  November; everyone should  vote for a change.  Richard Tomkies  President  SC Tourism Association  Editors Note: The Science  Council of Canada predicts a  maximum number of 160 jobs  throughout B.C. in aquaculture  by 1995. The reader is invited to  compare this with Tomkies'  stated projection of 9,500 jobs  by the year 2,000 and make  their own decisions re credibility.  this area as a quiet retreat with  no contact with the locals except  perhaps to attend meetings to  demand a better ferry service  to suit their commuting to Vancouver for social events and  shopping etc. They are not concerned with the needs of the  local businessmen or workers  and they will use every means to  lobby against any project that  they regard as a threat to their  private retreat.  They come here and are able  to afford expensive waterfron-  tage, land that we and our  children use to ramble over to  pick berries, fish off the rocks  or watch the eagles on their perches in the old fir trees.  Wood Bay is a prime example  and a fish farm there will not  entirely destroy access to that  area. Mitigation and compensation are the key words and I am  sure we can work something out  with Scantech.  Mr. Richardson claims that  the fish pens are in front of his  property and are spoiling his  view etc., I do not believe this to  be the case. In order to see the  fish pens he must look along the  waterfront some 200 metres to  his left. I do know that his property aquisition has prevented  our waterfront rambles in that  area. Scantech, I hope, will provide some jobs and a much  needed economic boost, can  Mr. Richardson make suchV  contribution?  ,  Vince Bracewell,  Davis-Bay  Shorter  ferry  route proposed  Editor:  Accidents like the recent ferry  - boat collision near Horseshoe  Bay can be avoided. Keep big  vessels and small craft apart.  Adopt a shorter, open water  route for ferries serving Vancouver Island. This would save  lives as well as time and money.  Pleasure boats and major ferries are a threat to each other.  In narrow channels they are  bound to get in each other's  way. So B.C. Ferries should  stay out of Nanaimo Harbour  and use Horseshoe Bay to serve  the Sunshine Coast alone. Have  our jumbo vessels run from  Wreck Beach (south of the UBC  campus) on Point Grey, to  Gabriola Island instead.  On this new, one hour crossing, one vessel could to the job  of two today. Wage, equipment  and energy costs would be cut in  half.

Mr. Anthony Brummett  Minister of Lands, Parks,  and Housing  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C., V8V 1X4  Dear Mr. Brummett,  Re:   The   fish   farm   recently  established   by   Scantech   at  Wood   Bay   on   the   Sechelt  Peninsula.  For the past twenty-eight  summers it has been my joy and  my delight to swim in the clear,  green, uncontaminated waters  by our property at McNaughton  Point on the Sunshine Coast.,  about one quarter mile west of  Wood Bay.  Last week, to my great disappointment, I found myself facing a cloudy layer of fish effluent which later clumped  together into brown patches on  the surface of the water. This  effluent is from two pens of  fingerlings at the Scantech Fish  Farm. There exists accommodation for eight pens.  I have observed this operation at close range on a recent  canoe trip to the site and have  determined that this is the  source of the contamination of  which I speak.  As the minister responsible  would you please explain to me  how a permit for this commercial development was granted,  in an area zoned for residential  use, without consultation with  either neighbours or the  regional district.  I want your reply.  Mrs. D. E. McTaggart.

Your group is invited to join  in the festivities. Set up an  original, informative, colourful  display about your work. Bring  along raffle tickets, crafts or  other items you want to sell.  Please limit edible items to baked goods or preserves. VAC will  be operating a food concession  throughout the day from the  kitchen.  Table fees are $8/table for a  straight display; $15/table if  goods are to be sold. This  money will go to cover costs for  hall rental, advertising, entertainment, etc. Tables are three  feet by eight feet and your  group can have approximately  50 square feet of floor space  altogether.  This fall we encourage you to  join in heightening the community spirit on the Coast.  Call the Volunteer Action  Centre at 885-5881 as soon as  possible to register your group.

However they will have  displays and plants for sale at  ; the Sunshine Coast Community  Services' Fall Harvest Fair at  the Sechelt Indian Band Community Hall on October 19.  A much appreciated public  , address system has been  donated to the Garden Club in  memory of Paul Roth, a valued  member who died this year; the  donation was made by Mrs.  Kate Roth. Two large flowering  trees, a gift to the Sechelt  Village, were also a wish of  Paul's and this will be taken  care of by Alderman Ken Short.  The Garden Club, as their  contribution to the community,  will donate a permanent type of  planting for the Library  grounds; this will be their spring  project.  At the meeting on Wednesday, September 4, president  Barry Willoughby brought  some of his prize winning  dahlias, one, a big gorgeous  Perm's Gift decorative dahlia,  was a real eye catcher. Barry  had thirty entries in the big  Richmond Horticultural Show  at Minoru Park and came home  with twenty three ribbons. The  Richmond growers with their  rich soil were amazed at what  ' has been produced on the Sunshine Coast with its sandy soil.  Colin Cole showed a most  unusual plant, an ornamental  ' egg   plant   with   small   pink  flowers that developed into a  real white egg like fruit; looks  ��� like someone had glued the eggs  on the plant.  Question period, and questions and answers flew fast,  with many solutions for correction of garden ills.  This will continue to be the  format for the garden club's  meetings, along with exchange  of plants.  Club members are being urged to bring garden items for sale  at the meetings and asked that  they price them.  A want book has been  brought forward again, so  members may put in requests  for different plants that may be  available in other gardens.  Come and show off those  special items that you nurture in  your garden. The exchange of  growing ideas is what the club is  all about.  The Sechelt Garden Club is a  member of B.C. Council of  Garden Clubs and as such has  contact for more information if  needed.  The meetings are held the  first Wednesday of each month  at St. Hilda's Church Hall, the  next one will be on October 2, at  7:30 p.m.; new members are  always welcome. Under discussion will be the Christmas oartv.

"Of course John and I tidied  up almost every day-bottles and  cans in the flower beds, tobacco  ends on the walkways, candy  candy wrapper..."  Kay adds, "We could well do  with an anti-litter campaign  here in Gibsons, and that's for  the young of all ages." Kay says  this with some vehemence.  Joan Thompson, proprietor  of the Muffins shop across the  road from the park, says that  visitors at her shop frequently  remarked on the bright display  of colourful flowers that seemed to give them such a cheery  welcome to the town.  Well, tidy bright displays like  our Pioneer Park doii!t occur  by some form of spontaneous  combustion. They occur by way  of tiresome chores by devoted  volunteers. Let us remember  that, as we continue to think of  ways to widen our sense that  Gibsons deserves prideful care  by._every one who lives here.  WEDDING ANNIVERSARY  A Gibsons couple celebrated  their fiftieth wedding anniversary in Victoria, August 24 at a  gathering of family and friends,  arranged by their children.  Gordon and Ivy Richards of  Skyline Road were married  August 21, 1935 in Bellingham,  and lived in Chilliwack until  1961 when-they moved,to Gibsons. Gordon Richards was  with Canfor in Port Mellon as  an accountant until his retirement in 1977. Ivy was for some  years a devoted member of the  St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliary.  Cards and messages came  from many places. In B.C. and  the prairies, as well as from the  prime minister, the premier, the  governor-general and our ,  MLA.  Helping their parents  celebrate this milestone event  were daughter Barbara, her husband Peter, and Barbara's  children Brian and Sheri Riches,  and son Bob and family, Sandy,  Rob and Susan. Relatives came  from Vancouver, Powell River,  Chilliwack and points in Alberta.  SUMMER SALES  "Ice cream sales this Summer? Excellent," said Sheila  Kitson of Truffles, the Candy  Store, "Favourite flavours? The  old standards like vanilla,  chocolate, and strawberry I  found sold well, and so did  some new concoctions like tin  roof, and cookies and cream."  Nearby, overlooking Molly's  Reach and Pioneer Park the  Muffins shop had line-ups at  their take-out window every hot  summer day. A small  chalkboard lists more than a  dozen flavours of ice cream.  "It's a good corner for  visitors to stop to stare at the action around Molly's Reach and  the marinas," said Muffins'  proprietor, Joan Thompson,  "and in the evenings there were  strollers, many from visiting  boats for coffee. I met many interesting people this summer."  "I found there were often  more people about in the cool  of the evening.than in the hot  day. But ice cream was still in  demand, and of course my  stock of candy and chocolate  caught many an eye" said  Sheila.  And the young pedlars of ice  cream from their specially built  bicycles were a sight new on  Gibsons streets.  Alii Frisch and Shannon  Bulmer rented a special bike in  Vancouver and got a town  business permit to sell ice cream  at tournaments. "We did well  enough," said Alii, "with space  jumble; fudge ice cream,- and  spacicles���the kids' mouths  turn blue...very popular."  David Wilson had his bicycle  custom made at the Real Bicycle  shop on Dayis Road. "I found  the cold pop went well especially in crowds like the dock on  fireworks night."  "I made David's cycle like  ones I'd seen in Mexico." said  Weldon Epp, "and it took parts  from three different cycles some  extra tubing and welding by  John Webb, an idea for brake.:;  from my wife, my own shop-  made wheels to get the machine  built."   ;  Joan Thompson says her  Muffins shop now has winter  fare ready - bunwiches, hot  dogs and nachos - as well as  home-made bread, tarts, and of  course, muffins.  At Truffles the candy display  can now take first importance.  ''We have our Belgian  chocolate, and our supplies for  the home chocolate maker such  as flavours, molds and so on.  And of course for our very  young shoppers we have  jawbreakers, and fruit candy  sticks." said Sheila Kitson..  PLAY PARADE SUCCESS  There was good public attendance at the Summer play  Parade held in the upper floor  room of the museum this summer.  "The returns put the Eileen  Glassford Foundaiton in the  black." said Colleen Elson,  "and still left some funds for  next year's program."  "Next year," said Colleen,  "we intend to have a program  of three plays only, one new  one, one that has been  presented during the winter  season, and one from a visiting  group."  The Summer Play Parade  wishes to gratefully acknowledge a grant of $300 given by  the regional board. Colleen said  the unseen hero, the man who  designed the sets, and built  them, Brad Benson deserves  special praise.  When asked why the times  for the Theatresports and the  Play Parade conflicted, Colleen  said, "We scheduled to start  after Sea Cavalcade. Theatresports was scheduled during Sea  Cavalcade but the organizers  did not know the tides are a factor for Sea Cavalcade and  booked their teams for the  wrong weekend."  Bridge tournament  The B.C. Heart Foundation,  Sunshine Coast division is having a foursome bridge tournament, starting at the end of  September.  The Heart Foundation sponsors research projects and  educational programs. More  research will provide the causes,  cures and means of preventing  problems such as heart attack  and stroke.  Your playing in this tournament will help the B.C. Heart  Foundation continue in this objective. Last year we had players  from Pender Harbour to  Langdale participating.

It lies a  few miles east of Earl's Cove  near the mouth of the  Skookumchuck Rapids and until recently, the proximity of this  tidal phenomenon was its main  claim to fame. Egmont did enjoy a brief burst of publicity in  the mid 70's when Ritter's  Cove, a Beachcombers clone,  set up production there. But the  CBC/West German co-production was not a commercial success. After little more than a  year, the disgruntled filmmakers packed up their cameras  and departed. Egmont faded  back into rustic tranquility.  Now, in 1985, Egmont is in  the news once more - and for a  quite different reason. After  years of extensive exploration in  the immediate area, the Chalice  Mining Company of Sechelt has  come up big. They have located  several major ore-bodies of impressive richness. There is gold  in them there boondocks.  The story behind the Chalice  discovery is a fascinating one. It  involves a number of people but  Steve Hodgson of Roberts  Creek is certainly one of the  pivotal figures. Hodgson, who  runs the field operations from  the company, has been involved  in the enterprise from the very  beginning. His vision and  energy have contributed in no  small way to the success of the  Chalice operation. But it was no  overnight fluke. The road Steve  Hodgson followed to the big  strike was long, unlikely and  convoluted, with many detours  and potholes along the way.  Hodgson was born 40 years  ago in Los Angeles, California.  His early years could fairly be  described as American middle-  class normal.  Hodgson was a  good   student   and   active   in  several sports, including football, baseball and track. He also  played in the school band. But  even then, Hodgson was a rock  hound and this interest  overshadowed all his other activities.  He took frequent trips to the  desert with other enthusiasts*' in  search of interesting samples.  Nature and the outdoors were  central to his life from the start.  This   fascination   with   the  earth led Hodgson to major in  geology  at   the  University  of  Colorado. In the normal course  of events, he might have gone  directly   into   this   field   upon  graduation. But the 60\s were a  time of ferment and new directions and Steve Hodgson got  sidetracked.    He   met   a   girl  whose father was a film producer and  became completely  intrigued by this medium. After  completing college, he went to  New York and became a trainee  with   MPO   Videotronics  who  were then doing 60 per cent of  Theatre  Movie goers have a choice of  three this week at the Twilight  Theatre.  Monday and Tuesday, September 9-10, sees the finish of  the run of Volunteers, starring  Tom Hanks and John Candy.  This movie is a satirical look at  the Peace Corps of the early  1960's. .:.: '.-y*>.  St Elmo's Fire is a film of  which less is known at the time'  of going to press but one  reviewer has waxed lyrical  about the incandescent ensemble acting so it would seem fair  to expect a pleasant evening's  entertainment.  St. Elmo's Fire plays  Wednesday through Friday,  September 11-13.  The third movie of the week  is an action-packed adventure  about an honest policeman attempting to break a criminal  gang of Asiatic origin.  Year of the Dragon features  Mickey Rourke who has  rocketed into acting prominence  after his successful, debut as  Charley Moran in The Pope of  Greenwich Village.

Hodgson's first effort was a  cinema verite study of a curious  character named Lou Como,  also known as the "Bubble  Gum Bandit". His trademark  was to leave a wad of Black  Jack gum on the No Sale button  of the cash register at the scene  of each crime. When Hodgson  and his fellow filmmakers  tracked Como down, he was living in a converted coal bin at the  bottom of a tenement air shaft.  "He looked a bit like Abe Lincoln," Hodgson recalls, "tall  and lanky and greasy. He'd  done so much time, he could  only relate to small, cellular  spaces. Como had an old  Harley Davidson three-wheeler  motorcycle and lived by  scavenging from garbage bins."  The resultant film was shown  at the Village Gate, an avant  garde theatre/jazz club and  received good reviews.  Hodgson went on to make  several more films. He tied up  with a group who were producing the first definitive documentary on the world of the hippies.  Hodgson and his associates  travelled across America interviewing Timothy Leary,v Bob  Dylan, Allan Ginsberg and  other underground luminaries  of the time. They visited all the  major enclaves of the new  lifestyle such as Haight Ashbury  and Drop City. The film, entitled: Psychedelia - A Sub Culture  attracted a good deal of attention - some of it from unwanted  areas.  Unknown to Hodgson and  the others, the whole project  was being carefully monitored  by the FBI. His involvement  with the film brought him to the  Fed.'s attention also.  Hodgson by this time, along  with many of his contemporaries, had become adamant-  Is opposed to the Vietnam War.  He worked on a subsequent  film called Some Won't iio,  that actively condemned the  United States's involvement in  South Last Asia, it only served  to increase the FBI's interest in  him.

In Powell River  Coast News, September 9,1985  .13.  by Jon Van Arsdell  Friday evening loomed with  the prospect of an unexciting  night with the tube until Kim  Calloway (presently with  CKWX) appeared out of the  past and we spent the hours  planning a trip to the folk  festival at Lang Bay in Powell  River on Saturday and Sunday.  This would preempt Saturday  night's plans to attend the Jazz  Festival in Gibsons but the  possibility of a weekend rerun  of the "good old days" was too  much to resist.  Indeed the site on the beach  at the end of Lang Bay road remained as untouched and  beautiful as I remembered it  from 13 years before when we  had attended a similar event  there. Many pleasant surprises  were in store for us on what was  turning into a very sunny  weekend.  A mere $4 got you into the  grounds each day and once  there you became virtually self-  sufficient as the food conces^  sions were as reasonably priced  as they were varied and tasty,  everything from logger-sized  cheeseburgers and Indonesian  shish-ka-bobs for the meat  eaters to Greek spinach pie and  fresh picked corn on the cob for  the veggie lovers.  Your guide to  the finest in  area dining  &Fa4t  It was one of the first days of  fall weather; crispness in the air,  a drizzle of rain, just the evening to be cosy and warm, the  perfect evening to visit The  Creekhouse in Roberts Creek.  We came late to dinner, and  with good appetite; to begin my  companion had the soup du  jour, a delicate, fresh chicken  broth with fresh tortellini and a  mild cheese grated over, and I  had the house salad, fresh ro-  maine lettuce garnished with  thinly sliced, crisp onions and  latticed carrots; the dressing, a  Creekhouse special, is a delight,  creamy yet light.  The menu is not large, but  there is real variety, from the  filet a l'echolotte (prime beef  tenderloin with a shallot sauce),  saute stroganoff (tenderloin of  beef with sour cream  mushrooms, peppers), lobster  "Creekhouse" (baked with  tomatoes, brandy, wine and  cream) to my companion's  choice. Prawn Pastis. I chose  one of the two specials, Co-  quille St. Jacques.  The Prawns Pastis is a dish  with a lot of flavour, large  prawns in a garlic butter sauce  with a touch of liqueur. The  Coquilles St. Jacques was more  delicate; scallops baked in a  wine and cream sauce with  mushrooms. Each course came  with a helping of stuffed zucchini, fresh, barely steamed carrots, and cottage potatoes. The  meal was accompanied by home  baked bread, replaced as the  need arose.  Neither of us wanted more  than a glass of wine; I chose the  house wine, a choice of a Mis-  Local organizers of this event  such as Jim Lands made sure we  were comfortable in the shade  of a huge parachute where it  was fun to look up at the helium  ballons kids had let get away  that got stuck in the top. Great  campsite facilities for tenters  and adequate facilities meant  you could attend this festival for  a song.  Other people, Don Bowes  and Ted Welp, made sure we  were totally entertained in a  very professional manner by  hiring the likes of Gibsons'  Bruce Forsyth to mix the musicians and give us very uncluttered sound at just the right  volume and Roberts Creek's  own Ken Dagleish as a very  knowlegable and smooth  Master of Ceremonies.  Those who played included  the following; The Mark  Hasselbach (formerly of  Powder Blues) six piece Band  from Vancouver - up-town  rhythm and blues - powerful,  slick, very structured and very  good (they played the Stillwater  boogie on Saturday night).  Tom See also of Vancouver  -folksinger, blues artist and  guitarist par excellence - precise,  honest and totally entertaining  (Tom plays the peninsula at  times and you must see him).  Big Band Trio out of Victoria  -all types of "old timey" jazz  sion Ridge or an Italian Colli  Albani. The Italian was dry and  a perfect match for the scallops.  The wine list is not exorbitantly  expensive from $10 - $12 at the  lower end to $16 - $18 on the  upper end of the scale with  more expensive champagne  available.  We lingered over dinner, and  then chose to take our coffee into the lounge beside the  fireplace, where several soft and  comfortable sofas and armchairs invite a leisurely liqueur  or dessert.  The homemade offerings  were, that evening, blackberry  cheesecake, pecan pie and our  choice,   raspberry  sherbet.  The special, Coqiiille St. <��' ���  ques, came with the salad, ._id  at $10.95 was a real bargain.  The Prawns Pastis at $14.95.  was the costliest item on the  menu and certainly good value.  Our bin, including the dessert,  soup du jour, our main courses,  and coffee was $35.20. With  two glasses of wine and a local  beer, $42.75.  For the budget conscious  there are light meals, and from  past experience I can say that  they, are certainly adequate for  the average appetite. Crab cannelloni, with spinach and cream  and crepes maisons (crepes stuffed with . seafood and  mushrooms in a wine sauce) at  $9.95 to fettuccini "putanesca"  (with only fresh pasta) at $6.95,  and salads from $2.50 to $4.50,  it's possible to have an elegant  and comfortable night out in a  charming restaurant for a  reasonable price.

Bubble Head Express - fusion  jazz-rock from Powell River  itself - very sophisticated considering the youth and experience of this talented and  disciplined group. Getting Off  Easy - the inspiration of Kate  Hammett Vaughn, Vancouver  -three lovely ladies with good  choreography, great voices and  lots of practice with a full band  sound behind them (our own  Nikki Weber and the Gee Gees  would admire this group).  Bob Carpenter - folksinger,  balladeer, R&B specialist of  Gibsons (put Bob on your list of  must's for an evening out on the  Sunshine Coast if you haven't  already). John Tyler  -folksinger, balladeer from  Powell River was sincere,  honest and admittedly nervous  but I felt that John was at the  core of the essence of this  "folk" festival.  And therein was where the  only rub did lie. As Bob and I  basked and enjoyed on Sunday  afternoon we both felt that the  festival (at least this year) was  maybe just a bit too.slick...just  a bit too jazz oriented...a bit too  dominated by three, possibly  four, acts working so hard at  their music that they are on the  verge of "making it". Mind you  I can appreciate it when it's  done with style.  Ken pointed some interesting  things out to me as well. He  suggested that the festival this  year reminded him that if you  go to Powell River you can still  see and experience a sense of  country rural living where people share a community life style.  This festival was not sponsored  or promoted by an E.D.C. or a  tourist association. No grants  were involved and no large sums  of do-re-me changed hands.  Spending time with old  friends from Gibsons and  Roberts Creek to Pender Harbour and Egmont reminded me  that the somewhat slower  lifestyle we live on the coast  should be appreciated by more  of us.

Coast News, September 9,1985  Ted Dixon remembered  as tournament opens  Sechelt's new park  TARSUS  ENTERPRISES LTD.  Line-out action in weekend rugby game.  ���E.T. Kennedy photo  There was a good turnout of  players at the tournament on  September 1 to commemorate  the opening of the Ted Dixon  Memorial Park.  There were several awards:  most valuable player, over thirty, Peter Kenny; best  defenceman, Ian Dixon; best  goalie, Jim Peers; best forward,  Kevin August; most sportsmanlike player, John Millar;  most goals scored, Jason Pierre;  most valuable player of the day,  Darren Dixon.  Gibsons drops rugby start  Gibsons' third division rugby  team was overwhelmed by an  excited Trojan club on Saturday  at the Elphinstone field. The  Vancouver side came fired up  fpr the occasion, and scored a  decisive 20-12 victory over the  home town blue shirts.  Scoring opened for Gibsons  early in the game from club  skipper and scrum half, Dave  Rainer, off a 35 yard field goal.  A second offside penalty to  the Trojans gave Rainer another  shot at goal, pushing Gibsons  ahead &0 midway through the  first half.  The Trojans fought back,  gaining the majority of loose  and set scrum play. Their forwards scored two tries off slipping rushes, catching Gibsons  flat footed. Gibsons also failed  to tackle well, leaving the holes  for the Vancouver side to take  advantage of.  Gibsons' first try of the year  came to proud new daddy,  Hugh Duffy. Fortunately for  Hugh he didn't even have to fall  on the ball, he was blind sided  and awarded a penalty try in the  end zone. That's one for the little girl and Kelly.  Gibsons came alive at this  point of the game with the Trojans ahead by a slim 14-12  margin. Pressure was all Gibsons could offer against the hidden strength of the Trojan  horse. The final score was 20-12  for the Vancouver Trojans.  Next Saturday at 11:30 a.m.  Gibsons fourth division will  take on Tswassen at the  Elphinstone field, while the  thirds head to town to take on  the Capilanos.  The Sechelt Indian band  would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge with genuine appreciation the contribution of all the people who made  the day possible.  . First, the band members, the  Totem Club and the band Bingo  Club for their financial support;  secondly, the people in the community who gave generously of  materials and equipment to  make the park a reality; and  thirdly, the band would like to  thank the carvers who created  the totem poles, Jamie Jeffries,  Brad Hunt, Frank Dixon and  the students who worked under  them, Byron Baptiste, Lance  Jeffries, Jonathon Clarke, Ben  Pierre Junior and Mike  Jackson. Our special thanks go  to Leo Nestman for donating  the logs to the band.  Finally, thanks to all the  athletes and people who turned  out to make the occasion a very  special time.  883-9294   883-2220  The  Chinook Swim Club  And  Pre-Esso Program  Registration  Sunnycrest Mall, Gibsons  Sat.

i^3HclQR 16.  Coast News, September 9.1985  By Gibsons Council  Several items on the Gibsons  Council September 3 agenda  dealt with the same topic, that  of the need to develop the  strength of the small business  sector of the local economy in  the light of a faltering resource  industry, and the precarious  position of the one-industry  town.  The Economic Development  Commission  of the  Regional  Save  valuable  staff time  We deliver  right to  your  office.  And there's  no charge  for friendly  service and prompt delivery-  If you like good coffee,  (also4ea & hot chocolate) call Liz at  Audrey's Coffee Service  District of Alberni-Clayoquot  has written with an invitation  for representatives from the  Town of Gibsons to attend a  conference in November to explore economic strategies for  smaller, resource-based communities.  As well, a newly formed  association, the Canadian Association of Threatened Single Industry Towns, has written to  Council to encourage their  membership in the society.  Closer to home, Douglas K.  Jardin, Acting Principal of the  Sechelt campus of Capilano  College, has invited representatives from Gibsons to attend  an "exploratory/brainstorming  meeting" on September 30, to  explore the types of assistance  the college might offer the community to undertake economic  development in present difficult  times.  Alderman John Burnside  pointed   out   that   Martin  Thomas of the Ministry of  Municipal Affairs, who visited  the Sunshine Coast recently,  had observed that one of the  things local government must  do is protect its tax assessment  base and find ways to help the  small business sector.  "I would be willing to attend  the Alberni-Clayoquot conference," Burnside said. "I  think it's the direction we'll be  compelled to take in the  future."  Alderman Bob Maxwell suggested that Oddvin Vedo,  Economic Development Commissioner, should develop some  rapport with his counterpart in  the Alberni-Clayoquot district.  "Oddvin has some responsibility to the town," Maxwell  said. "This is something he  should be doing."  It was agreed that council  would examine the three items  in more depth  Sechelt seeks hospital sidewalk  "Within the next two months  we hope there will finally be a  sidewalk from Wharf Road to  the hospital," Sechelt Alderman  Graham Craig told the Coast  News last week. "It will be a  real community project."  Craig explained that complications in building a sidewalk  have centred around the fact  that the Department of  Highways has jurisdiction over  the sidewalk area from the road  into the Indian Band lands to  the hospital, but has no respon-  r  ��� AUTOMOTIVE e  NEED TIRES?

Craig has approached several  service groups and private com-  oanies, and has evolved a  community-spirited plan which  will overcome this difficulty.  The Department of Highways has agreed to establish the  desired ground levels, excavate  as necessary, and take care of  the over-burden of soil. Enter  Gibsons Building Supplies and  Swanson's Concrete, who have  offered to supply the form  materials and the concrete at  markedly reduced costs, and the  Sunshine Coast Lions, who  have volunteered all labour for  the construction of forms, placing of concrete, etc. And St.  Mary's Hospital Auxiliary will  cover all money expenditures  through the office of the  Hospital Administrator.  The Village of Sechelt will  assume   responsiblity   for   the  sidewalk from Wharf Road  along the Forestry office to the  Indian Band Road, the area  which is within its jurisdiction.  Where there is already  blacktop, as in front of I.C.G.  Liquid Gas and Second Look  Boutique,   a   white   line   will  delineate the sidewalk area from  the roadway.  Craig, who will co-ordinate  the project, expressed himself as  "delighted" with the cooperation and community-  spiritedness shown by the  groups involved.  Creative writing at  Capilano College  People interested in developing their creative writing are invited to participate in a credit,  intensive workshop course at  the Sechelt campus. The course  begins on Thursday, September  12 and runs for 15 weeks.  Students present their writing  weekly for constructive criticism  by instructor and class. Enrolment is limited to 20 to allow  for individual attention. Two  texts of modern poetry and fic  tion are studied as part of the  course.  The instructor is Bill Scherm-  brucker, author of Chameleon  and Other Stories, heard recently in an interview with Peter  Gzowski on Morningside and at  a reading at the Arts Centre  locally.  Register now at the Sechelt  campus, Inlet Avenue or call  885-9310 for more information.  Restructuring referendum  Continued from page 1  senior governments would  theoretically continue to pick up  the costs for another five years,  although Woodward stressed  that both senior governments  are examining police costs and  looking for ways of spreading  the costs evenly over all  authorities.  "One way or the other this  municipality is going to pay for  policing costs," commented  committee member Ken Short  (Sechelt alderman).  Woodward suggested that the  ministry of lands, parks and  housing be approached with a  view to obtaining a basic land  inventory for the new  municipality. He also suggested,  that, as more expenses are to be  incurred in holding public hearings and distributing information prior to the referendum,  the committee should suggest a  funding supplement of $2,500.  The restructuring committee  hopes to receive the draft Letters   Patent   by   the   end   of  September, and has tentatively  set the date of Tuesday, October 8 at 7:30 p.m. in the  Sechelt Senior Citizens' Hall for  public hearing. At this hearing,  any concerns or questions from  the public would be recorded,  and a package of all letters,  statements of opinion as well as  the committee's views would  then be sent to the minister so  that he can decide if the referen  dum should be held.  Woodward declared himself  firmly in favour of one central  voting place if a referendum is  held, and stated that local  voting lists would not be used  but all voters would have to  declare that they fulfilled the requirements. The committee's  recommended date for a  referendum is November 15,  1985.  ExpOasis action  A most important ExpOasis  meeting will be held tomorrow,  Tuesday, September 10, at 7  p.m. in Greene Court Hall in  Sechelt. At that meeting elections for chairmen of the  various sub-committees will be  held, so it is most important  that everyone attend and that  people be willing to stand for  office.  The' 'brainstorming' sessions  are now over, and it will be up  to those elected to lead their  committees in sifting through  the information received, setting priorities, and then beginning - and completing - the tasks  required.  New people are most  welcome to join the group, as  now comes the time when the  sub-committees must really get  down to work, and any help  would be most appreciated.  As ExpOasis chairman Vic  Walker says, "We'll only get  out of this Expo opportunity  what we put into it."  ��� MISC SERVICES ���  SUNSHINE KITCHENS]  - CABINETS - I  886-9411  Showroom: Pratt Rd. & Hwy. 1011  y Open: Sat. 10-4 or anytime by app't.  i\okn Hcoimm  Refrigeration & Appliance Service  Sunshine Coast Hwy.

B.C.TEL ��  A member of Telecom Canada  Continued from page 1  go through Victoria, so Victoria  is still maintaining control."  Val Anderson, President of  the B.C. Liberal Party, accompanied Lee on his visit to this  area. He spoke of the voters the  newly reorganized Liberal party  .would like to attract.  "There's that large unnumbered, group, the ones that  haven't voted before," he said  in a conversation with the Coast  News. "It's the middle ground  we need to relate to. What we  see as our policy is a consensus  of the needs of most of the people. Both left and right views  contribute to the centre, and  that's our strength.  "We are tied to the people,  and the dignity of the people.  This has always been the Liberal  view," continued Anderson.  "People are dissatisfied with  what's happened to our health  services, our regional districts,  our schools, our forests. It's  unheard of for B.C. to have  such high unemployment and so  much poverty," he said.  "What's disturbing is that the  money's been going out, the  budget has actually increased  each year despite restraint, but  it hasn't gone to create permanent jobs, or to improve the  forestry for example," Anderson continued.  Anderson said that right now  the party is organizing so as to  be ready whenever an election is  called, although when that will  be is open to speculation.  "We have candidates in every  riding, we are organizing from  the grass roots, trying to respond to the people in the community," he said. "We want to  return the power to the school  boards, we want local  autonomy and provincial cooperation. We have to plan and  work together. We see MP's,  MLA's and Aldermen meeting  together to discuss common  concerns. We see the provincial  government's key role as bringing all levels of government  together."  One of the major problems is  how to combat voter apathy.  Letting people know that what  they say makes a difference is  one way Anderson sees to deal  with this.  "Art Lee has been travelling  the province this year, he's been  where people can talk to him,"  Anderson said. "He sees the  wisdom of working with  volunteers in the community,  working with the local people.  "We want to change from  leadership of people from  above, to leadership from  within, fundamental, consistent  and reliable," he continued.  "People need services available  to give them dignity, and the  ability to live wholesome lives.

Coast News, September 9,1985  A large piece of driftwood heads for the cargo container at Gibsons wharf last week on its way to West  Germany where it will be used in landscaping work. The wood is prized in Europe because of its bleached  look and its salt saturation which acts as a preservative. ���Brad Benson photo  Germany takes our beach stumps  Driftwood in demand  ��� Root stumps and selected  pieces of driftwood from the  beaches of Keats and Gambier  Islands in Howe Sound were  loaded aboard a cargo container  ait Gibsons Wharf last Tuesday  ajnd are now on their way to  \yest Germany.  ' On   hand   to   oversee   the  loading was Al Torrico of A.R.  Torrico & Sons Inc., an exporter of landscaping materials  with offices in Seattle and  Bremen, West Germany.  According to Torrico, the  first cargo shipment is destined  for zoos in Heidelberg and  Mainz.   The  communities   of  Mannheim and Bonn are also  scheduled to receive shipments  and some will be included in an  upcoming landscape show in  Berlin.  Torrico says he has permission to take the driftwood from  the B.C. Forest Service, who  considers it to be garbage. The  company worked through the  B.C. Log Salvage Association,  contracting Dick and Jo har-  mon of the log salvage boat  Snark to collect the pieces.  There are no stumpage fees or  export duties involved, nor are  any local approvals needed.  Torrico sees more of this activity in the future. The wood  makes excellent landscaping  material because of its bleached  colouring and because it is  permeated by salt, it is well  preserved.  He prefers working in B,C.'s  beaches over Washington's.  The roots are larger and the  beaches are easier to access/J^  The Canfor mill at Port  Mellon will be shut down again  this year although the time is  not yet definitely set, according  to president of the Canadian  Paperworkers local, Steve  Holland and confirmed by  Manager Harry Cargo.  There will be a two week shut  down some time at the end of  October as a production curtailment, and a one week shutdown  between Christmas and New  Year's, unless the weather is extremely cold, in which case it is  impossible for the mill to shut  down completely because the  pipes will freeze and be damaged, said Cargo.  Holland, in conversation with  the Coast News, said that the  union has been trying to work  on developing a work sharing  program.  "We are trying to get a program together whereby we  would work a 36 hour week to  enable other workers to come  back," he explained. "The only  costs to the company would be  the benefit premiums of the  newly hired workers. However,  the company didn't go for that,  so now we are trying to work  out whether we (the union) can  pay the premiums ourselves."  Harry Cargo, commenting  on the work sharing program  looked at it in a different light.  "We have had discussions  with the union," he told the  Coast News, "and we have  done what the union wanted.  We got the figures together on  premiums, and what it would  cost.  "But I  work,"  employee  $10,000 a  possible.  Although Cargo did not absolutely rule out company participation in a work sharing program he was not enthusiastic  about it, and Holland told the  Coast News that the company  had in fact said that it didn'r  matter what the costs were, it  would not agree with such a  plan.  "It's counter-productive to  be unco-operative with the company at this time," Holland  continued, "they are putting the  pressure on us to increase productivity, to cut costs. It's dif  ficult to take any kind of job action under these circumstances,  but I don't know what we'll do  if the membership agrees to try  a work sharing program and the  company doesn't go for it.  "We want to co-operate with  the company," he said.  Retraining programs have  not been undertaken, Holland  said, although a representative  from Manpower and the Unemployment Insurance Commission had visited the company  and talked about retraining and  relocation programs. All of  such programs require cost  sharing with the company, according to Holland, and that  puts them out of the question.  "We've also asked management to sit down with us and  write to the MLA, the MP and  to the appropriate minister,"  Holland added. "They told us  that   if   senior   management  wanted to lobby the government  then that was in their arena.  "We (the union) feel that it is  our responsibility as management and union to try to secure  tax breaks, or cuts in energy  costs, anything that will help  out," he continued.  Cargo confirmed this; "The  corporate office has already  talked to government about  breaks on electricity," Cargo  said. "It is not the jurisdiction  of the local manager to do that  (write or lobby government).  The vice president, Mr. Gunther  has said that he would talk with  the government, but it's up to  him when and how he will do  it."  "It's discouraging," said  Holland, "when you want to try  to find ways to let people know  what's happening, and it  doesn't work.'
