Array t/lC'f!>&lf\.   ��>>C .  ��_�����*.  There were some 60 concerned citizens at a public meeting Sunday  September 15 to air their opposition to a proposed booming ground  at Tuwanek and to express their concerns for the safety of  homes should the hillside be clear cut. ���Jetia Heinen  their  pholo  Tuwanek residents unanimous  No booming ground  bv Dianne Evans  ��� "Everyone was so levelheaded and reasonable; it was a  pleasure to go to a meeting like  that for a change," said Sun-  . shine Coast Regional District  (SCRD) Planner, Jim Johnstone in conversation with the  Coast News last week. He was  referring to a Sunday,  September 15 meeting at the  SCRD officesVhen close to 60  Tuwanek residents met with  Johnstone, Planning Committee chairman, Director Brett  McGillivray, and Area C Director Jon McRae.  The residents' showed  unanimous opposition to a proposed booming ground for  which a foreshore lease application has been made by Sun for  Logging, which is presently  engaged in logging an 80 acre  parcel, DL 3259, above  Tuwanek.  Ken Kerpan, who is one of  the residents involved in the  protest, spoke to . the Coast  News about the outcome of the  meeting.  "Yes, I'm happy with the  way it went," he said. "There  was a good response for which  we have to thank the driving  force of Ruth Glessing and her  phone committee, and we were  unanimous in our opposition to  the booming grounds. And we  did reach some positive conclusions, one of which was that t' s  SCRD apply for a recreational  foreshore lease from Tuwanek  Point to Lot 1, Plan 10 663, DL  3259, similar to the foreshore  rights granted recently at Davis  Bay.  "There is also the possibility  of taking the logs to an already  existing booming ground between Tuwanek and Nine Mile  Point. Todd Road, which is a  gazetted road, meets the proper-  tyi (DL 3259) and there is a continuation of the road through  the property to the old water  system. That's presently in the  hands of the SCRD. It would  require some road building to  get to the dump but not an excessive amount." Kerpan continued. "That's another positive  point that came out of the  meeting. The residents would  like to take over the rights to the  water system to use for fire  back-up."  : Kerpan went on to explain  that the most feasible alternative to the problem is for Sun-  for to truck the logs out.  "It's certainly not an adverse  haul as Sunfor has alleged," he  said, adding that it was-agreed  at the meeting that McRae  would take steps to set up a  meeting with Bill Davis, one of  the owners of Sunfor, to find  out his wants and intentions.  "We would be willing to meet  with him to negotiate a solution  to this problem," Kerpan said,  saying   that   the   number   of  residents present at the meeting  would be left up to Davis to  decide..  Three divers and a biologist  from the Department of  Fisheries (DFO) have visited the  site, doing dives in the bay  where the booming ground is  proposed and as far as the nearby forestry leases and the site of  a proposed oyster lease which  lies between the controversial  bay and the forestry lease.  "They got back and said that  they would oppose a log dump  at the site because there is too  much marine life in the kelp  beds there," said Kerpan.  "They did say that they would  approve a log storage facility,  but we feel that that would  negate the value of the small  park reserve which is adjacent  to the site proposed for the  booming ground. That and a, ���*;:  dry-land sort would not be con-  sistent with the park."  DFO has also told the  residents that there is a chum  salmon run in Irvine Creek, and  any damage done to the watershed would have negative consequences on the 'wild' chum run.  Another area of concern for  the residents is the possible environmental damage if the area  is  strip-logged,  and  they  are  J Please turn to page 17  At the Municipal Convention  Minister says provincial  economy is on the mend  The news is good provincial-  ly, according to Minister of  Municipal Affairs Bill Ritchie.  In his address last week to the  annual convention of B.C.  municipalities, Ritchie painted a  glowing picture of a province  which he said was turning the  corner economically.  "There were 77,000 more  B.C.'ers employed in May of  1985 than was the case last year  at the same time," Ritchie told  the assembled municipal  delegates in the Hotel Vancouver last Wednesday morning.  "Unemployment in this province is now below 13 per cent,"  said Ritchie, "retail sales in  B.C. were up by six per cent and  at three per cent our inflation  rate is the lowest in Canada."  Ritchie was an unabashed  booster for his Partners in  Enterprise (PIE) programme  which sees municipalities offering tax incentives for new industries within municipal boundaries.  "This is a special opportunity," the minister told the  delegates. "The provincial  government and our municipalities are working together in  pertnership to turn the economy  around."  The minister told the delegates that over 80 per cent of  B.C.'s municipalities had indicated that they would join the  programme.  "Our goal is to have 100 per  cent participation," said Ritchie.  The Minister of Municipal  Affairs was equally upbeat  about the new land use regulation, Bill 62, which he hopes to  have passed into law by November of this year.  "It is the best land use regulation in the country. It is a good  bill and it is going to be better  after we have heard from all the  municipalities.  "We are going to facilitate  development by deregulating,  especially in rural areas," said  the Minister of Municipal Affairs.  Ritchie also spoke in glowing  terms about Bill 56 which has  been passed to 'allow ' ��.mporary  commercial and industrial use  of residential property during  t' ; Expo influx' and also promised legislation to reduce the  fluctuation in the financial base  of the province's local governments.  "I cannot be more specific at  the present time," Ritchie told  the Union of B.C. Municipalities delegates, "but I can  assure you that the province's  grants to the municipalities will  not be reduced in the coming  fiscal year."  The minister was less upbeat  on the matter of mushrooming  liability for municipalities 'due  to court decisions being made  nation-wide'. Later during the  convention the delegates  unanimously passed a resolution calling for legislation from  the senior governments to limit  the liability of municipal  governments which at the moment has limits neither in the  amount of liability nor in the  term of liability.  He also decried an initiative  by Mayor Mike Harcourt of  Vancouver in conjuction with  the National Association of  Municipalities to have the senior  governments fund in large part  the upgrading of the municipal  infrastructure, primarily sewer  and water services which have  fallen into disrepair or are  dangerously antiquated all  across the country.  "We will not be going to the  federal government and suggesting that they increase their  deficit," said Ritchie.  Later Harcourt told delegates  in a workshop that the proposal  put forward by the Canadian  municipalities had been researched by the research company  utilized by the Federal Conservatives and they had agreed that  the proposal would not increase  the deficit and that Finance  Minister, Michael Wilson and  the Minister for Regional Industrial Expansion, Sinclair  Stevens had supported the initiative.  Provincially eight of the ten  provinces had supported the  idea, only B.C. and Alberta  have refused so far to join.  Recycling  This is Recycling week.

Area F meeting  There will be a public meeting to discuss a change of zoning  for Parcel E, DL 687, at the Langdale School, Wednesday,  September 25, 7:30 p.m.  Public hearing  There will be a public hearing to discuss Lamb Bay rezon-  ing at 7 p.m., Thursday, September 26, at the Sunshine Coast  Regional Board offices in Sechelt.  Toward independence  Sechelts confer  with province  Slowly and surely, the Sechelt  Indian Band is proceeding step  by step ever closer to its seven-  year-old goal of self-  government.  Seeking a "full range of  governmental powers," and  wanting "to be recognized by  the provincial government  within a municipal  framework," band representatives meet today (Monday)  with a bi-lateral committee of  senior advisors from the departments of Municipal Affairs and  Finance chaired by Deputy  Minister in the Attorney  General's office, Robert Exell.  Goal of the discussions is effecting changes necessary in  both the Municipal Act and  provincial Taxation Act to accommodate the provisions of  the Sechelt Indian Band Self-  Govern ment Act. When passed  by federal government, this act  will put into effect the document under which the Sechelts  will ultimately govern  themselves, the Sechelt Indian  Band Act.  "The provincial government  has. said it wants to see accomplishments at each meeting  with us," Chief Stan Dixon and  financial advisor Gordon  Anderson said in conversation  with  the Coast News.  "They  want to take amendments to the  current legislation before the  cabinet after this round of  meetings."  The last major hurdle which  must be cleared before the  federal cabinet can deal with the  issue is the matter of land title.  Provincial legislation must  recognize that the band has  legal title to the lands reserved  for it, and that it can enter into  fiscal agreements and is a legal  entity in the same way that any  municipality is, with the same  rights and powers.  The Sechelt Band expects that  finalizing data for the draft of  the document which will go  before the federal government  will be submitted by the first of  October.  "Minister of Indian Affairs  David Crombie has said the  final draft legislation should go  before the House of Commons  the first week in November,"  said Chief Dixon. "We've been  promised full support from the  two opposition parties, and it is  possible that within a week to  ten days of the legislation being  tabled, it will be passed and the  act will become law."  That would make the Sechelt  Indian Band the first self-  governing Indian Band in Can-  da.  L&K logs to go  to Fraser River  : L&K: Lumber Limited,.long a  focus of speculation and  rumour, will finally change  hands on December 1, according to President of Terminal  Sawmills in Richmond, Asa  Johal, in a conversation with  the Coast News.  An understanding has been  reached for the sale of the company which filed for bankruptcy  in 1984. Its timber licences grant  it the right to cut 325,000 cubic  metres annually, but no details  on the current status of these  licences are available at this  time.  Terminal .Sawmills, has a  sawmill on the Fraser River and  it is here that the timber will be  milled. The logs will be taken to  the booming ground at L&K in  Twin Creeks, boomed and towed to the Terminal Sawmill.  According to Johal the logs  will be sorted in the water, but it  is possible that in time the dry  land sort would become operational again. Further information on the terms of sale and the  future of the company will be  made available on December 1,  said Johal.  ,y  m  '  t  ������  'n  Last week's Terry Fox run brought more than 100 people together  to run, bicycle and walk the 10 kilometre distance.

Coast News, September 23,1985  t  r  A siew age  When I was seven years old King George VI died and to  this day I remember my mother coming into my room in  the morning to tell me the news. In those days, when  Mount Everest was still an unconquered frontier, we were  great monarchists, and in Australia most little girls had  books about the young princesses and we all knew the  names of the corgis in the Royal household.  The death of the King was a blow, something akin to  losing one's favourite but somewhat remote uncle.  But the Queen was there to carry on, and things would  be much as they had been before.  That was not to be.  In the 33 years since then the technological changes that  have taken place in the world have brought us to the edge  of doom, they've taken us to the stars and beyond, and  they've made the world a far smaller place than it ever was  before.  It's taken that long for us to realise that the old ways  won't work anymore. Even now most people cling to the  old, think that the solutions we used back then will solve  the problems we have today.  As the world enters our living rooms and we see clearer  every day the manipulation, the oppression, the slyness,  not just of "the other side" but of our own as well, we  have to take a long hard look at what it means to be a  human being in the latter quarter of the twentieth century.  All around us now are the stirrings of a wave of change  and one of the key words of that movement is cooperation. Without it the gap between those who have and  those who have not will widen; our future will grow  bleaker and our children will reach adulthood with the  firm belief that aggression and confrontation are the ways  out of a jam.  Now, when we have a new age before us, with changes  undreamed of in the fabric of our social structures, we  must look to the future with new eyes, and minds open  enough to accept new ideas, to take the chance to break  new ground.  Let's face it, we're all in this together, and if too many  of us go down, we'll all be the poorer for it.  Dianne Evans  Bus service  We trust that members of the Gibsons and district  Community will take note of the proposed new bus  routes and schedules advertised on Page Three this  week.  A transportation service is something we most  assuredly need and the only way the venture can be a  success will be if the community avails itself of this opportunity. It's up to us.  John Burnside  from the files of the COAST HEWS  S YEARS AGO  A spokesman for the B.C. Ferry union says a new  shift schedule on the Langdale ship will mean the end  of late sailings on the route.  An estimated 8,000 square feet of the Pulp  Warehouse roof at Canfor's Port Mellon operation caved in at 2 a.m. last Tuesday when one of the 12 x 12  wooden support pillars was sheared off by a lift-truck  working inside the warehouse.  10 YEARS AGO  .

The first wharf was to be built somewhat to  the east of the present wharf but after the first four or five pilings were put in it was decided to relocate  because it was impossible to get the pilings down more than one or two feet. The original pilings are still  standing, though almost buried by the rocks of the present breakwater. Even in its new location, if a big  log hit the wharf during heavy weather the wharf would shake badly. Because of the rough weather the  wharf was built with a land driver as opposed to a floating driver. A steam operated land driver is  customarily used to build bridges over creeks. Eventually a pipe ran along beside the wharf to bring oil in  to tanks which stood by the creek and which were used for logging operations. Pictured beside the pile  driver is the engineer in charge of operations.  Photo courtesy of Mr. & Mrs. Charles Merrick  John Burnside  "The old style boosterism is  dead in the water. If you do an  advertising programme which  attracts 100,000 people to your  community then can't back up  the boosterism the result is a  disaster."  That's a quote I jotted down  during one of the workshops at  last week's municipal convention. The speaker was Mayor  Mike Harcourt of Vancouver,  the topic of the seminar was  economic development within  the community. I jotted it down  because I thought it had immediate relevance for the Sunshine Coast  On the subject of our  preparations for Expo 86, a  prominent Sechelt businessman  said to me recently: "We don't  want to go hog wild trying to  lure a million visitors here next  year when we don't have the  amenities for a quarter the  number. What we should be doing is improving- our amenities  so that the people who do come  to visit with us will stay a few  days longer than they otherwise  would."  I make the point that this  similarity of view comes from  the moderately left wing mayor  of Vancouver and a staunchly  and proudly conservative  business man in our community. I leave it to the reader to  draw what conclusions they  will.  For the second straight year I  thoroughly enjoyed the municipal convention. As I was moved  to say on Thursday night after  two. strenuous days, it was ex- '  citing to feel that there were  good minds grappling with real  issues. My enthusiasm was not  so engaged at any of the  teachers' conventions I attended  during my fifteen-year teaching  career, nor at any of the  newspaper conventions I have  attended since becoming a  publisher.  Perhaps, as Alderman Bob  Maxwell observed, it is the  diverse personal backgrounds  of municipal representatives  which lends the municipal convention its richness, that and the  fact that this level of government is the one most closely in  touch with the people and their  very real problems at the present time.  For me, the highlight of an  Reflections on  a convention  excellent convention was the absolutely wonderful keynote address given by economist Kristin  Shannon on Thursday afternoon. Ms Shannon studied  economics in Japan fifteen  years ago and had many, many  thought-provoking and  stimulating things to say and  most wondrous of all, she was  devastatingly funny. Not  anyone I have ever seen was  funnier and the combination of  great good humour with some  very serious stuff indeed was  more than I for one could ever  have expected.  I'll just say that I borrowed  $10 to buy a copy of her recently published book first thing  next morning. It is called The  Next Canadian Economy and is  published by Eden Press and I  can't wait to get at it.  Here are a few quotes culled  from memory from a speech  which had me so entranced I  forgot my reporter's training  and didn't write a single note.  "When 1 give a seminar in  Zurich they ask tough questions  and you don't get out of the  room until you've answered  them. Canadians are too polite  to ask tough questions - at least  they have been. And if by  chance a tough one gets asked  and the speaker sidesteps it,  Canadians are too polite to  mention the fact."  Ms Shannon drew on her experience in Japan to compare  the Japanese approach to that  which has prevailed in North  America. "The Japanese are  realistic. They look at the world  as it is. North Americans have  seemed to feel the need to be  determinedly optimistic. Not to  be optimistic is some sort, of  treachery, as though the affairs  of   the   world   were   entirely  dependent on mood management."  She said fifteen years ago the  Japanese were aware they were  going to need vast quantities of  raw materials and had determined they would be got from  Canada and Brazil. "The northeast coal deal was already a  gleam in Japanese eyes fifteen  years ago."  Some one asked when she  thought the present coal glut  would be over.  "Not soon," she said, "and  we knew that when we started  on that particular  mega-project."  She had served as a consultant in the prepratory stages of  the recent Conservative budget.  "What would you have done  about the deficit?" she was asked.  "We recommended cuts of  $7 billion and it would not have  been hard to do."  The squandering of huge  sums of money on wasteful and  inefficient subsidies would have  been her target.  "For example, every year we  subsidize a hopelessly inefficient  transportation system in Newfoundland. One year's subsidy  of a bad system is actually  enough to buy every Newfoundlander a Volkswagen and  that kind of enormous waste of  our money is duplicated right  across ttys country."  The essence of her argument  was that the old ways won't do  anymore and the old days ain't  coming back. The challenge of  the next ten years will be to  manage the transition in a way  which will minimize the enormous attendant social dislocation. I'm going to start with that  book.  Into My Heart  Into my heart an air that kills  From yon far country blows:  What are those blue remembered hills,  What spires, what farms are those?

Housman  A most  valuable  service  by Maryanne West  If you are lucky enough to  have one of those little human  dynamos, ever on the go and  like the Elephant's Child filled  with "satiable curiosity",  known as a pre-schooler, you  should know about the Parent  and Tot drop-in centres in  Sechelt and Gibsons.  The centres are not places to  leave your child but provide opportunities for you both. For  the child there's stimulation of  different playthings, the  challenge of co-operative play  and sharing with others, the fun  of making music, singing, taking part in. stories and games;  times for conversation when  grown-ups are free to really  listen.  For parents, it's a couple iof  hours during the busy week^to  relax to enjoy your child, $o  share in his/her games, to Ujlk  with other parents, a time ;to  share your joys and achievements and to gain support and  help if you need it to overcome  difficulties. \  Each centre and each year's  program is flexible so that'.it  reflects and serves the needs bf  that particular group of parents  and children; for example,  speakers and discussions can be  arranged on topics of mutual rjn-  terest or special activities fpr  holidays and seasonal festivities.  Activities are usually based  on a flexible framework, ohe  which offers the stability and  security of "we know what's  going to happen next" for the  children with the possibility "to  take advantage of the children's  special interests on any given  day. The two hour period will  provide time for free play, \o  choose your own activity, usually at the beginning and end of  each session, with a break for-a  social time and snacks in the  middle and more organized activities, singing, games, storied,  etc. fitted in between. *  Play is an important learning  tool for all children, not only  for the fine tuning of muscular  development and co-ordinatiop,  but for social growth, learning  to share and co-operate wifti  others, discovering how to overcome difficulties and how to improvise, the fun of doing things  yourself and  the rewards .-of  achievement, of being able to  balance bricks one on top of the  other. Watching your child at  play or sharing his/her games is  revealing of the child's needs  and the process of development  which is taking place, and helps  parents   to   gain   a   better  understanding of the child and  thus strengthening the bond between parent and child. :���;  This service comes under the  umbrella  of  the  Community  Services   Society.   There  is ya  registration   fee   of   $5   with  another $1.50 each week you attend, but if for any reason you  find yourself in straightened circumstances and it is more than  you can afford arrangements  can be made and will be strictly  in confidence.  The Gibsons Parent and Tot  drop-in is held in the United  Church Hall and begins this Friday, September 27 from  9:30-11:30 a.m. In Sechelt.the  centre is on Tuesdays beginning  October 8 and will be held on  either the Green Court Hall or  the Indian Band Hall. {  Recognising the changes in  social structure of our society^  parents may be of either genders  and surrogate parents, those  caring for children while their  parents work are also welcome;  as of course is your child if  he/she is still too young to par--  ticipate in the activities; babies  are an added bonus and of par7  ticular wonder and joy to small  children. y  Karen Scott, supervisor Fot  the centres can be reached )at  886-8648 if you need more ipK  formation.

Upon questioning them I found  out they were provincial government  technicians doing water  tests in the area. I asked if they  were getting much variation in  their readings along the beach  and they confirmed that they  had in previous tests. They said  they were puzzled by the tests  because the only area that showed a high count was the beach  fronting on  Granthams  Road  (wtfiere the wharf is). With no  house directly above the beach,  why was it polluted?  When I showed them where  the storm drain for the whole of  Granthams came out of the  bush on Granthams Road onto  the beach, they said, "that  solves that problem, because all  the dog and animal dirt from  the whole area was washing  down to this location giving it a  high count while the rest of the  beach was normal."  The reason 1 mention this  business about reports and  testing is because they are not  accurate and can be used to  mislead the citizens.  For instance we are not being  told that the worst offender in  polluting the Gulf of Georgia,  Shoal Channel and all our local  beaches are the municipal sewer  systems and especially the large  number of ships and boats  dumping sewage in Gibsons  Harbour and Shoal Channel.  A septic tank is a bacteria  operated treatment plant that  produces clear water. The  system was invented by a  French scientist in the 1800's.  If a user of a septic tank  abuses the system it will clog up  and has to be pumped out,  unlike the municipal treatment  plants which all have bypass  valves. When a municipal treatment plant is overloaded or has  to be shutdown because some  one puts oil or toxics down their  drain, which is happening quite  frequently, the bypass valves are  opened up and now there is raw  sewage pouring out onto your  beaches. >..  The various government environmental departments are  very concerned about increasing  pollution from municipal  sewage systems.  Let us not be conned into the  thinking that municipal sewage  systems are less polluting than  septic tanks, they are definitely  not and are a costly addition to  our taxes which could eliminate  most of our $1 a year taxpayers.  Let the bureaucrats dream up  another way to squeezer dollars  out of the poor taxpayers, so  they    can    build    up    their  kingdoms and make deals with  little  municipalities  that   have  grandiose schemes which they  cannot afford and are causing  Missing the mark  Editor:  In response to John Burn-  side's criticisms of the Judaic-  Christian influences in our  culture:  I'm getting a little tired of  hearing the Judao-Christian  ethic trotted out as culptrit  number one in explaining why  our culture has missed the  mark.  This is the law of Almighty  God that is being smeared. God  is not mocked. We would do  very well to look at the ills of  our time as a result of lawlessness and man's perversion  of the directives God has  graciously given us, rather than  to be quick to lay blame on  God.  If it were not for the law of  God we would have few (if any)  of the considerable blessings we  do have as a culture. The difference between raw bar-  barianism and the decree of  civilized justice, freedom and  wisdom we still enjoy is to be  found in ethics and laws that  were originally based in large  part on Biblical understandings.  This is not to say that men  have always been correct in how  they have understood the Bible.  Perhaps the problems that  Burnside attributes to Judaic-  Christian influence are a case in  point (Musings: Enemy Within,  September 9). It is quite possible  (even probable, knowing the  nature of man) that the Biblical  statements concerning man's  dominion over God's creation  (Genisus 1:26,28), have been  misconstrued by avaricious,  short-sighted men, intent on  justifying their greedy and  violent habits. Are we then to  blame God, just because this  culture pays grudging lip-service  to his directives?  Yes, God gave man dominion  over his creatures. But just as a  king has no right before God to  rape and mistreat his subjects,  neither has man a right to rape.-  arid mistreat that which he has  dominion over. Does he do so  anyway? Some do, some don't.  The directives of God are not to  blame   for   the   problem.   A  reading   of  God's   word   will  show that God has a special  concern  for all  his creatures.  Disobedient man is the culprit.  We can  - indeed  we were  made to - live in harmony with  both God and his creation. We  have gotten out of step, and we  are paying for it (Cf. The Curse  on    Disobedience,    Genisus  3:16-19). Continue out of step  and the situation will get worse.  There is only one way to get  back in step - and it's not by  disparaging God's law.  Nicol Warn  Terry Fox report  Editor:  We would like to thank all  the many participants in the  Terry Fox Run. Over 100 people turned out to support this  event, many elementary school  children participated, with one  boy walking for three and one  half hours on crutches. The  oldest person was 71. She and  her dog strode along admirably.  Over $1600 was collected in  donations and pledges.  Many thanks to all the merchants who donated their produce, specifically, Gibsons  Building Supplies, Henry's  Bakery, Highways Department,  Sunco Printing, Super Save  Store, Super-Valu, Village of  Gibsons.

Quoting from Maryanne  West's Viewpoint column in a  previous Coast News, titled,  "Pity the Poor Planner".  Quote: "and our septic tanks  function nicely thank you".  Bert Norman  Editor's note:  According to Ron Webber,  Works Superintendent for the  Town of Gibsons, if there was a  major problem at the Gibsons  Sewage Treatment Plant, the  people who would decide on the  way to deal with it would be the  Ministry of Environment,  Pollution Control branch.  "Our sewage outfall is 700  feet off the shoreline," Webber said in conversation with the  Coast News, "and we've never  had a problem with dumping.  We have to stay within certain  bounds that are specified within  our permit and we are checked  regularly and thoroughly by the  Ministry,not just at the plant  but out in the area where the  outfall lies.  "The 1978 report showed  every area right up the coast,"  Webber continued, "and the  area of the outfall showed better than most other places.  Municipal systems are very  tightly regulated and we have to  comply."  The recently completed technical studies for the Settlement  Plan for Area F clearly indicate  that the soil in most of Area F is  not the best type to carry large  numbers of septic tanks: pages  71-79 of the plan contain detailed information on soil types,  different types of sewage  disposal and details of the  numerous engineering reports  from 1974 to 1983, compiled by  impartial and skilled professionals. For all the information  necessary to make an informed  decision about sewage, reading  of this report is suggested.  No   decisions   on   Area   F  sewage disposal have been made  / DE.

All supporters are invited to  attend the sign raising at 1 p.m.  To avoid congestion on the narrow road, people are advised to  park near the ferry terminal and  walk back towards Gibsons,  staying on the lower road until  you are four properties on the  Gibsons side of the North Road  junction.  Members of the peace committee will be there early to help  everyone locate the right spot.

While my initial reaction was  mixed (I didn't like the thought  of washing my cans and jars), I  have found considerable  satisfaction watching my small  collection of recyclables grow.  It feels good not having to waste  them.  If you remove both ends of  the can and flatten it (one or  two steps will do it) you can  store lots of cans in a small  space.  I realize also that our responsibility for our own garbage extends beyond merely taking the  department assures us that as  long as it is off the road  allowance the sign will be allowed to stand.  Unfortunately, the sign  couldn't be put up on August 31  as scheduled, and we regret any  inconvenience this may have  caused.  See you there this Saturday!

Gibsons & District  Chamber of Commerce  Box 1190  Gibsons, B.C.  VON IVO  Dear Sirs:  We would like to thank you  for the opportunity to "be our  own bosses" this summer  through the Student Venture  Loan Program which you sponsored.  Although we did not make  back our grant (we were short  by $600), we feel that the experience was worthwhile and  hope to have the "Gibsons  Bus" back in full operation on  May 1, 1986. In the meantime  we are looking into some means  of subsidizing the operation.  For the two months of operation, we transported approximately 2,000 people. We grossed $2,500, but gas and oil used a  large part of this, as did advertising. Another major cost was  the rental of a van when ours  broke down.  We feel we provided a good  service for the people of this  town and hope to have your  support again next year.  We feel a special thank you  Point of  view  Editor:  Richard Tomkies' letter,  which appeared in last week's  issue, is the purest expression of  the Socred philosophy responsible for corrupting the economic  and political integrity of this  province.  I possess little academic expertise in either politics or  economics, but I was impressed  with the good sense of the progressive proposals he was  ridiculing.  Regional autonomy is a very  effective strategy for allowing a  humane and eco-sensitive  perspective into business and  government, necessary in order  to restrain the rampages of  unrestrained greed and  megalomania so eloquently  described in last week's Musing  column.  Laurel Sukkkau  Positive  Editor:  Yeah to recycling!!!  It's high time we gave our  support to the efforts of our  community to deal with our  garbage in a more conscientious, realistic way.  In response to G. Fyles' sarcastic, non-supportive letter of  last week: There is a phone  number to call, 886-2261, for  people as yourself that appear  to be having difficulty with the  concept of recycling.  I'm sure after talking to them  you'll be able to work it out, it  really isn't all that difficult,  and, a little more work on our  part is certainly worth the end  result, wouldn't you say?

You are now meeting at the  Davis Bay/Wilson Creek Community Hall on Davis Bay  Road. This is an invitation for  all members, old and new, to  come at 8 p.m. on the second  and fourth Wednesdays of each  month. That means that next  meeting will be September 25.  LIBRARY NEWS  The Wilson Creek Library  has the number one best seller  non-fiction book of several  weeks, laccoca, on its shelves.  At least when I return this excellent book it will be back on  the shelf.  This fantastic little library has  an extensive Canadiana section  but if your tastes are for  mystery, fiction or gardening,  there are lots of those books as  well.  Story hour for pre-schoolers  and their Moms will be October  4 at 10:30 a.m. You new Moms  in the neighbourhood will be  welcomed along with your toddlers. The children will be read  to while Mom has coffee and a  good talk with other Moms.  The selection of children's  books is wide and varied, with  the "readers" making the  stories come alive.  PARENT INFORMATION  EVENING  Parents of Davis Bay elementary school are reminded of the  parent information evening on  September 26. Do not forget  September 30 will be a holiday  for your children. Aptly called a  non-instructional day.  FOOD BANK  Please take all your excess  garden   produce  to   the   food  Kiwanis Auxiliary  President Margaret Wheeler  opened our first meeting of the  ;winter season by welcoming the  >22 members present, along with  Xathy Baxter and Carol Bishop.  iAs it was hoped, many members broughtaiong a friend, and  ��jye were delighted to have seven  'guests join us who we hope will  .idecide to join our group.  ,   The first and best news of the  evening was the fact that the  mini-bus is now a reality and  will 'be  purchased  within  the  next three months. The funds  were raised for this project in  just under one year, and this  amazing effort was only made  possible by hard work and the  generous and constant support  of local businesses and many,  many private individuals.  We  have been given a grant which  will complete the funds needed  to actually purchase the minibus.  A discussion was held regarding our Christmas and Gift  Bazaar to be held at the Sunnycrest Mall on October 26 at  10 a.m. Judy Bothwell and Sue  Whiting are the convenors.  There will be a bake table, plus  craft table, and a raffle.  Members are asked to bring  their completed craft items to  the next meeting if possible, and  also canned goods to make up  the food hamper, which is to be  one of the raffle prizes.  We have been asked to assist  with Bridge evenings held to  raise funds for the auxiliary.  There will be approximately two  bridge evenings during the  winter and we will be more than  willing to assist with the  refreshments.  December 5 is the fifth' ari-  'riiyersary of the opening of the  Kiwanis Village. The auxiliary  will be assisting the residents  with their plans for this occasion.

I do. I have been given a  memo which originated with  Len Herder, chairman of our  building committee which says,  "Your building committee has  now commissioned our architects to begin drawing the  working plans for our new activity centre."  Is that cause for a cheer? I  would think so.  At the last count our  membership stood at 681. That  figure alone should indicate to  the skeptics that the seniors are  a very definite force in the community and worthy of some attention.  Activities at the hall are proving very attractive and bringing  in more and more members at  every session. After all one cannot get a better cup of tea than  one brewed by our ladies and  sandwiches and goodies are  always out of this world.  The other activities go on according to the schedules we  have already published so show  up at your favoured activity and  have yourself a good time and  some good company and friendship.  If you have ideas for additional activities, let us know so  that we may incorporate them  in our planning if feasible.

Of all the  r fires in Canada 48 per cent oc-  l cur in the home and these  I residential fires are responsible  \ for 90 per cent of our fatalities.  \ In Gibsons and the surroun-  \ ding district the Fire Chief, Mel  Buckmaster, will be visiting the  local school principals to enlist  their co-operation in sending  home Get Out Alive plans with  every child.  It is hoped that parents will  take the time to draw up a simple plan for the family's escape  in the event of a fire, and to  follow through with several  practices so that all members of  the family are familiar with it.  Channel 10 community  television will be airing several  programs on Thursday evenings  on fire safety and there.will be  advice on how to draw up an  escape plan.  In October there will be an  open house at the fire department and on October 9  everyone will be forced to think  of fire when the sirens go off at  6 p.m. and fire engines make  themselves heard in every  district. This will be the time to  practice the plan or, if it has not  been  drawn  up  yet,  to  start  thinking about it.  There will be a chance for  each child whose family completes a fire safety plan to be  "Fire Chief for a Day" and  every child who returns the  coupon attached to the plan will  receive a fire safety certificate.  Participation is important; as  fireman Cliff Mahlman said,  "We want to really get behind  this; we've had our share of  tragedy and we want to make  sure it doesn't happen again."

Let me repeat that I am all in  favour of recycling - there is far  too much waste all around us. I  do however feel quite strongly  that the program must be carried out without it affecting our  weekly garbage pickup for  which we fought for many years  to achieve.  We are now forbidden to use  the garbage dumps in the area,  and that we have accepted.  Maybe it is hoped that by the  time   next   summer   comes  around we will have got used to  the idea, but Redrooffs Road  becomes a disaster area in the  summer months when vacationers are here, the majority of  whom put their garbage out in  Please turn to page 14  Seecoast  Living  5705 Cowrie St.  Sechelt  885-7864  COAST  NEWS Photo   Reprints  Any published photo or your  choice from the contact sheets  3_ 4-3'  5_ 7-5*  8-10-8'  *>&*  Rust Check wo  on new cars,  used cars,  even rusty cars  (Tractors, salt trucks, vans and buses too.)  Rust Check was  intentionally withheld  from the general public  until a fully proven  track record was established.  Proved over  10 years,  without one  warranty  claim.  Rust Check is like no other rust  treatment available today. It is the  only system that works on both  new and used vehicles, even  where rust is obvious.  Today's new lighter unitized car  bodies need Rust Check protection  because rust, besides speeding  depreciation will actually weaken  the car structure. Older vehicles  wiil last longer and maintain a  higher trade-in value because Rust  Check checks the spread of  existing rust.  Rust Check's incredible "claim  free" warranty record makes it  possible to offer an insured  warranty for new cars that is  unparalled in the industry.  "Yes, Life Insurance for your  new carl  Simply stated ... if your car  rusts (from the inside out) at  any time while under the  Rust Check Maintenance  Program, we repair the  damage free.  Our Warranty is backed by  one of North America's  largest insurance companies  and it is fully transferable,  carries no mileage  limitations, and is renewable  annually for as long as you "  want to remain in the  program.  Now that's peace of mind,  not to mention the extra  value at trade-in time.  'Specify Rust Check on your new car.  Tell your car dealer well in advance,  that you want your new car protected  with Rust Check. Insist on it. Protect  your investment. It makes good sense.  'Fleet Operations (oo.

Original paint and chrome.  No body work. Positive  proof that the Rust Check  Maintenance Program  really works.  'How Rust Check works.  Rust Check is a special formula  that will:  1. Evaporate moisture.  2. Penetrate existing rust, tight seams  and crevices, right through to the  base metal for maximum protection.  3. Creep continually to provide year  'round protection.  ' Rust Check is economical, clean  and safe.  For a very low annual cost, rust can  be held in check for years. Unlike oil,  tar and wax-based sprays, Rust Check  is so clean and harmless it can be  safely applied to chrome, door locks  and handles. Rust Check will not  damage asphalt.  Applied while you watch.  Only one hour is required for a  complete Rust Check treatment. Rust  Check can be applied in any kind of  weather. Heal, rain, snow and slush  will not affect its performance.  Rust Check is strongly  recommended by the Automobile  Protection Association.  ". . .

Coast News, September 23,1985  It took both Jim Gilchrist, left and John Lukas to hold the magnificent and enormous Hubbard squash the two gentlemen grew at the  Lukacs' residence on Bay Road in Gibsons. Grown in compost, the  squash weighed in at 38 pounds. ���Dianne Evans photo  George    in    Gibsons  Good reading  by George Cooper, 886-8520  The Canadian Encyclopedia,  copyrighted 1985, has just arrived by mail to homes, and on the  shelves of bookstores.  Published in Edmonton by  Hurtig, the three large volumes  have over 2000 pages and an index that "lists subjects that do  not have their own articles in  the encyclopedia" and tells in  what articles information on  those subjects can be found.  Probably late junior high is  the youngest age that this encyclopedia will appeal to.  History, geography, industry,  products, people sketches,  sports, military (new 1984  uniforms), law and courts, provinces, cities and towns and  places are only some of the  general areas reported on.  Do you remember Torchy  Peden and the six-day non-stop  bicycle races around the year  1928? Plenty of recollections are  stirred if you remember that far  back as you read the  biographical sketches.  And more recently too, for  there's Charles Joseph Clark  (Joe Who?) who receives a  thoughtful unbiased treatment.  And Pierre Elliott Trudeau (one  whole page), and John Napier  Turner (born in England in  1929), and John Edward Broad-  bent (former professor and  political theorist).  The B.C. Lions has an article  of its own, and the Vancouver  Canucks too, but the  Whitecaps, the soccer team, is  only mentioned in a word or  two in the article, "Soccer".  Under the title "Northern  Georgia Straits Coast Salish"  there is but the briefest of mention of the Sechelt band.  The record of the Japanese  community in B.C. is set out.in  some detail. Their expulsion  from the Coast was evidently  the climax of a discrimination  felt by them since the rampage  of a mob through their community neighbourhood in Vancouver in 1895.  After World War II veterans  were given considerable help to  rehabilitate, but those of  Japanese descent were even  refused the right to vote. The  province of B.C. did at last in  1949 give the vote to the  Japanese and to the Native Indians, the very last of all groups  to receive a belated franchise.  And on the topic of the vote,  women have had an arduous  history gaining that right. First,  federally in 1918 when all  female citizens aged 21 and over  were enfranchised and this a  scant year after thousands of  loyal citizens were disenfranchised for fear they were not  loyal. Getting the vote provin-  cially took a longer struggle. It's  all there in this new encyclopedia.  It would be interesting to  know the criteria used to select  towns and villages for special  mention. Yahk, for instance, a  bend in the road in south  eastern B.C. receives paragraph  treatment which tells us that  fence posts is a major industry  there. And Gibsons, Sechelt and  Pender Harbour have no mention at all.  The   entry   "The   Sechelt  Peninsula" by writer Peter  Grant of Victoria says among  other tid-bits, that the area is  separated from Vancouver by  Howe Sound and the Coast  Mountains. Makes one wonder  about the preciseness of the information in articles of other  places.  But good reading indeed.  "Why didn't we have all this information when we were in high  school," said one grandmother.  PLEASE HANG UP AND  DIAL AGAIN  Have you been ticked off  politely by that voice when you  have only taken twenty seconds  of bumbling to dial your  number?  "Please hang up and try your  call again, etc.," the  mellifluous voice says and gives  you another 30 seconds to do so  before repeating the request and  then turning on a rude  mechanical rasping that can be  heard in the next room.  The interruption is only  slightly ameliorated"by the voice  sounding like former, public-  spirited resident, Joe Kampman.  "Joe, give a moment's grace,  the last two or three digits of the  number have suddenly faded  from mind and phone book's  been shut, and the pages seem  to stick together....Joe, please."  But the rasping cuts in and  dismantles the effort to stay efficient and calm. "Joe, may  your finger pressing that rasp  machine button turn blue for  ever."  And that brings to mind the  way businesses and services hide  their identity under local names  that only have meaning for  them alone. Need the clinic, for  instance? Okay if you live in  Pender Harbour, but not to be  found in the C's for elsewhere  in the region. Fortunately the  good woman in the family  usually has a computer memory  for telephone number; birthdays, etc.  Now a senior new to Gibsons  looking for Harmony Hall's  number-won't find it in the H's.  How can a stranger tell it's an  OAPS or an SCA?  Need the police? You're in  luck there. Right in the P's  following Poison control. And  again in the G's gendarmie.  Schools? Very clearly noted  under school if you know the  alphabetical sequence of the letters in the word school.  Need a garage service? Ah  yes, the yellow pages so abundantly cross-referenced.  Garages, see Automobile  repairing etc. and then leaf  through twenty pages of  Automobile this and that's.  Haircut? Better put on walking shoes to scout one on foot.  The walk is very calming.

Gibsons Legion Branch #109  -FOR YOUR ENTERTAINMENT-  Friday, Sept. 27 & Saturday, Sept. 28  3  m  by Peter Trower  Having established an initial  legal foothold in the area,  Hodgson and his associates  began to scour the surrounding  terrain. There were quartz-  sulfite signs everywhere but it  took considerable work to uncover some of them. "Part of  the reason no one stumbled on  this before was because of, the  heavy underbrush," Hodgson  says. "Also, they were too lazy  to scrape the moss off the  rocks."  On April 20, 1982, the partners had become confident  enough in their findings to incorporate as a company,  Chalice Mining. In addition to  Hodgson, LaRue and Sweet,  the 750,000 escrow shares were  divided among four other  stockholders: Tammy Lee  Laidenius (LaRue's wife); Jane  Eve Coxall (now Hodgson's  wife); Hagen Beggs of Vancouver and Joseph Norman  Lyons Jr. of Sechelt. It was now  essential for the fledgeling company to raise a substantial  amount of operating capital.  "We wanted to try and keep  the thing local," Hodgson  remembers, "so we hit on all  the businessmen we could think  of, who seemed to be in a good  cash-flow situation."  Many of the people they approached expressed great interest but, without exception,  they wanted time to think about  it. Hodgson and his partners  were anxious to thoroughly explore the entire Egmont area  with electronic equipment. They  also wanted to start trenching  (removing the overburden) and  diamond drilling for core  samples in the not-too-distant  future. But all those procedures  cost money, particularly the  trenching and drilling. The  delay was frustrating.  Then serendipity took a hand  in things. One day, while checking out a new area, Hodgson,  LaRue and Sweet met a  youngish-looking man wandering through the woods. He expressed interest in what they  were doing so they told him the  whole story. It was a fortuitous  .me.eti.ng. for the financially  stymied gold hunters.  The friendly stranger turned  out to be Peter Kontny, a  wealthv   West    German    in-  Twilight  Theatre  There is something for  everyone on the Twilight  Theatre's bill of fare this week.

Kontny was now investigating North American investment possibilities. He had  recently purchased 27 acres on  Agamemnon Bay, directly adjacent to the Chalice holdings.  "We gave him a Cook's tour of  the claim," Hodgson recalls.  "He seemed fascinated."  Peter Kontny was indeed  fascinated. He had bought the  Agamemnon Bay property  strictly as a hideaway for  himself and his friends and was  delighted to learn that he was  probably sitting on a very rich  gold field. The casual encounter  soon evolved into a serious  business discussion. Kontny  looked over the partners' findings and was very much impressed by the Chalice potential.  He agreed to become a major  stockholder and fund the firm  to the tune of $100,000.  Since Kontny's business interests took him out of the  country much of the time, he  brought in a friend, Deiter  Shindelhauer, to act as proxy  director on his behalf.  Shindelhauer was also from  West Germany but had  emigrated to Canada in 1957.  He had much invaluable experience in industrial management, including an 18 year hitch  with Noranda Mining. Under  Shindelhauer's expert guidance,  the Chalice Company became a  fully-professional organization.  Kontny's essential seed  money really opened things up  for Hodgson and company.  They were now able to proceed  with a much more ambitious  research program. Magometer  and Induced Polarization  equipment was brought in again  and the entire Egmont area was  exhaustively gridded and mapped. Trenching was also undertaken at several promising sites.  The instrument-readings continued to produce very favorable results. The entire area  seemed to be riddled with  quartz-sulfide veins and ore-  bodies. As a result of these new  findings, ten additional claims  were staked: three more under  the Chalice title; one under  Stern; three under Bacon and  three under Wally, making a  total of 11.  In addition to the Egmont  claims, the Chalice Company  purchased existing holdings in  both Bralorne and the Whistler  Mountain area, for future  development. Things were shaping up well for the mining firm.

Did you know that five  million adults in Canada are  unable to read or write at a productive, functioning level? This  figure comes from the 1981  Census, and represents over 20  per cent of the population. The  majority of these people are  Canadian born and Canadian  educated.  We do not really know how  many adults on the Sunshine  Coast aren't fully literate, but  11 per cent have less than grade  nine education.  The local ABLE program  (Adult Basic Literacy Education) has been established on the  Coast for nearly two years. Its  purpose is to assist any adult  who would like to improve their  basic reading and writing skills.  ABLE offers at-home tutoring,  free of charge, at all levels of  literacy. All teaching is on a  one-to-one basis (no classroom  sessions). Care is taken to select  a tutor with whom the student  will feel comfortable. In addition, the identity of students is  kept confidential.  ABLE recognizes that there  are many reasons for people's  lack of literacy skills. Students  already with the program come  from a wide range of backgrounds, and many of them excel in many areas of their lives.  Still, we live in such a print-  oriented society that lack of  literacy skills is a tremendous  I  Gourmet dining' in  elegant surroundings is  wonderful, once in a  while.

One of the best  places for this kind of  eating is the Ruby Lake  Restaurant, a cozy, cedar-  panelled, family-style spot  on beautiful Ruby Lake.  We drove up Sunday  evening       for       the  smorgasbord.

Mashed  potatoes and gravy filled  out our plates.  Dessert.was a choice of  bread pudding or trifle.  -We.bpth.opted for the to-,  fie^ which, though not the  sherried English version,  was tasty. The coffee was  piping hot and very good.  The selection of hard  beverages is limited to  house wine, beer - local  and import, and cider.  Spft drinks and the  popular New York  seltzers are available for  the light drinker.  Reservations would be  a good idea for the Sunday smorgasbord, but  space isn't a problem during the week.

Reasonable prices and a  pleasantly informal atmosphere make this a  good place for a young  family.

Claude Richmond, Minister Responsible Gardening on the Coast  Gardeners and  men need water  by Tam Johnson  �� This summer our usual green  ;! world: on the coast turned  ;' brown in the grassy areas which  �� could not be sprinkled. Even us-  jiing all of the sprinkling time  *; allowed, it was difficult to keep  \_ large lawn and garden growing properly.  v Gibsons was the worst hit  J; when their water system started  �� to give trouble and all sprinkling  �� was,halted. The question arises:  ��why bother to try to have a nice  J* garden and lawn? Why don't  ���:we   take   the   advice   of  the  regional district's superintendent and let it all turn brown?  If one contemplates that  question within the context of  life on the planet Earth then the  answer is clear. The phenomena  that sustains all life starts with  the plant growth in the oceans  and continents. It is only the  green plants that remove the  carbon dioxide from the air and  replace it with life giving oxygen. It is only the green plants  that make primary foods and  vitamins. ^  Man has encroached on a  large percentage of the arable  jjSkelly calls for public works  I; Continued from page 22  j: He cited this as "one of the  I; reasons why investors and consumers are reluctant to place  ;<their funds in this province,"  ijand quoted reports from the  ^Japanese business community,  ;\vhich is choosing investment in  Manitoba over B.C. because the  ^restraint programme "had not  I-'left in place a healthy atmosphere for future considerations."  f   Skelly proposed an all-party  ,t*committee to travel the province  ^"consulting   with   local   groups  and   "involving  local  govern  ments at every step along the  way" in developing an  economic strategy up to the year  2000 and beyond.  "Such an all-party committee  was formed after the last war  and travelled the province. Out  of its work came the blueprint  for the last 40 years of development in B.C., the highways and  hydro development. The father  of the current premier was a  Conservative member of that  committee.  "It's the only way to pull  people together." he said.

If he doesn't keep it green  then the probability of survival  falls rapidly. As gardeners it is  essential that we each make our  little contribution.  Besides there is great satisfaction in fighting the droughts, insects, fungi and politicians and  harvesting vine ripened tomatos  in-early August, as we were able  to do this year. I had forgotten  what a real tomato tasted like.  We don't usually try to grow  anything from seed in July and  early August but this year I  decided that some of my perennial beds should be redone in  the fall and it would be a good  idea to have some hardy plants  ready just before frost made  planting difficult.  I tried dianthus, carnations,  gaillardia, scabiosa, hollyhocks,  and campanula. All of these  germinated very rapidly in the  greenhouse where on hot sunny  days temperatures soared to  over 100 degrees F..  I started them in late July and  I have now potted most of them  into three inch pots. They are  now outside getting hardened  off. By late September they  should be ready to transplant in  the freshly dug perennial beds.  It isn't too late for you to try  some from seed. The very high  temperatures obtainable in a  greenhouse or window combined with very high humdity if  you cover the planter with glass  or clear plastic germinates the  seeds in just three or four days.  However remove the cover at  the first sign of germination.  Select perennials that don't  require low temperatures. This  information is contained in the  Stokes catalogue and very few  other places. Of course many of  the perennials may be sown  directly into the beds in the fall.  I have had good luck with poppies this way.  In closing I would like to  recommend that all gardeners  on the coast take an interest in  the water system in your area or  municipality. We as gardeners  tend to be accused each year of  over watering and we are the  ones that are erroneously blamed for the shortcomings of the  water systems.  The truth is that the natural  water drainage system is more  than capable of looking after all  of our needs but the lack of co-  Coast News, September 23,1985  operation between the regional  district and the municipalities  over the past decade combined  with bad planning to accommodate the very heavy housing  starts prior to 1983 has resulted  in less that adequate systems.  The 14 inch main line that  presently runs from West  Sechelt to Roberts Creek must  be extended into Gibsons and  beyond. This is required not only to look after summer peaks  but to fight major fires at any  time. This project needs a push  from gardeners and the fire  departments.  15.  Sechelt  MENTAL HEALTH  Centre  announces a  CHANGE IN TELEPHONE NUMBERS  885-3251  885-3252  MMMMMM  Premier on jobs  said 'amazing'  by Bob Skelly  The attitude of the current  government toward job creation  continues to amaze me. After  two years of silence while  unemployment rates  skyrocketed in this province, the  Socreds have now apparently  decided it is time to pay some  attention to the problem.  But the Premier's recent announcement that B.C. should  start building more hydroelectric dams to export power, as a  means of putting construction  workers back to work, has to be  one of the more illogical  statements of his political career  and in reality, does little to address the unemployment problem.  The cost of building the Site  C dam is projected to be about  $3.2 billion. It would create only 25 permanent jobs. In fact^j  this government's policy of  overbuilding hydroelectric  capacity has resulted in a loss of  jobs for thousands of workers  in B.C. Nearly 3,000 hydro  workers have lost their jobs  since 1982 as a direct result of  the corporation's huge debt incurred building dams which are  surplus to our power needs.  The amount of temporary  work that would be created  through construction of the  dam could easily be matched  through alternative job creation  projects.  The federal government has  done a study which indicated  that 200 megawatts of power  could be generated using wood  waste on Vancouver Island.  This would provide more  realistic energy solutions and  would provide numerous jobs  for unemployed construction  workers, engineers and forestry  workers. Conservation options,  such as increasing the energy efficiency in residential and commercial buildings through  retrofit and insulation, would  be labour intensive and far  cheaper than building dams.  Electricification of the B.C.  Railway and the national  railways in B.C. would create  thousands of person years of  construction employment and  reduce dependence on oil.  Cuts in services have resulted  in low maintenance levels within  the existing hydro system. There  is work to be done in hydro installations, along transmission  lines and in such projects as  removal of PCB's, a toxic  chemical in use in hydro installations.  Finally there is a vast range of  construction work in projects  such as sewage facilities, road  and bridge repair and  maintenance in the municipal  infrastructure system, housing  construction and renovation,  and maintenance and construction of public facilities.  I believe that tens of  thousands of new jobs can be  [created within the province by  I building and maintaining needed projects. In the coming months the NDP will outline and  provide a justification for new  projects that will put construction workers back to work. We  totally reject the premier's proposal to build an extremely  debt-intensive project, which  will further undermine the province's sagging credit rating and  ultimately result in added job  losses as hydro struggles to pay  its debts.

Soccer action
Chief Stan Dixon of the Sechelt Indian Band and Rick
Radymski of the Wakefield Inn are spearheading an attempt
to revitalize the Sunshine Coast Senior League.
Last Saturday, they organized a thrilling soccer exhibition
match between Wakefield United and Vancouver Internationals.
The local side gave the classy Vancouverites all they could
handle for almost the entire game, going down 4-3 when
Canadian internationalist and former Vancouver Whitecaps
player Shawn Lowther got the late winner for the visitors.
Saturday next at 1 p.m. at the Ted Dixon Memorial Park,
Wakefield United will test the Sechelt Chiefs.

following last Saturday's double
header match up at Elphie field.
The fourth division Piglets
took to the field first against the
Vancouver Meralomas A team.
Opportunities came often for
the young blue side who fought
a tough group of Lomas. Scoring for Gibsons was winger
Quin Kelly, finally home from
the fish farm. His attacking
three line fed good ball and supported strongly. Daryl Wagner
kicked the two point conversion.
Lomas scored twice off
scrum rushes and kicked one
conversion to take Gibsons to a
10-6 final score.
Third division Blues took on
UBC Totems in an exciting second game. Field conditions
were at their best and when the
sun shone through it gave light
to a team desperate for the win.
It didn't take long to see from
the sidelines that UBC were
ready to play. Gibsons in the
two previous matches have been
manhandled.in ruck and maul
play but in Saturday's match
against UBC they started to
show promise.
From the likes of M.J.
Mjanes, whose turning power
gave access to the rip and tear
style of maul play, we began to
see basics of good scrum play
take shape.
Steve Almond showed heads
up play on numerous occasions
in his standoff slot, feeding
Niels Payne for his first try of
the season. A missing link in
Jamie Rafter Gill threw spoiled
UBC scrum half into turmoil by
stripping the ball fom him and
setting up Steve Almond for his
first try of the year.
Dave Macleod, replacing
starter Dave Rainer, proved to
have the leadership qualities of
a first 15 scrum half. Macleod
kicked one convert and one
field goal to allow Gibsons
thirds their first victory of the
UBC scored valiantly but to
no avail. Final score was 13-7 in
the Blues' favour.
Fourths are playing Vancouver Trojans in Slocan Park,

MHR A01959 Coast News, September 23,1985  it.  It was a sunny Sunday morning at Brothers Park hut only five or six people turned out for the work party  to erect new bleachers and do work in (he field. Out in the field Mrs. Derby and Bobby Stewart pulled  weeds and spread sand, while pictured from left to right are Ray Hickman, Jim Gurney and Dick Derby.  Dick told the Coast News that the turn-out was very disappointing, and put in a special word of thanks  for Ray who has turned out for every work party so far. "More than 350 kids use that field and it just  doesn't seem right that so few people should turn out when there's work to do," he said. If you would  like to help with the work turn up at Brothers Park at 10 a.m. next Saturday, September 28. or 11 a.m.  Sunday, September 29, and lend a hand. ���Dianne Evans photo  Recycling  Although the first week of  recycling revealed several problems, a meeting held last Monday evening came up with solutions to most of them, according to Val Silver of the recycling committee.  Residents are reminded that  this is once again recycling  week, and only recyclables will  be picked up.  Glass should be placed in a  plastic bag or can, rinsed out  but not thoroughly cleaned and  care should  be taken  not  to  break any of the jars or bottles.  Acceptable glass includes jars  without lids or foil labels, wine  I and  liquor bottles with tops,  1 rings and foil labels removed,  other   bottles   and   glass  con-  ; tainers. Glass that is not acceptable are light bulbs, ceramic  ��� items, window or broken glass.  Newsprint should be placed  i in the yellow bags which have  ! been provided at no cost. Bundle the paper with twine or str-  r ing and lay the bags flat. Accep-  ;table       paper       includes  .newspapers, flyers, magazines,  ��� glossy papers, but does not include    telephone    books,  catalogues,   envelopes,    boxes  ���and  cartons,  any  paper  item  bound by glue.  Metals should be rinsed and  have the paper labels removed.  Acceptable metals include food  and beverage cans, lids, metal  foils and dinner trays, but not  acceptable are spray cans, batteries, items only part metal or  large metal items.  Recycling shops located in  Gibsons (886-8193) and Sechelt  (885-9009) can give more information required on other  recyclables (i.e. appliances, batteries, all metals and old cars).  For those having difficulty  managing with garbage between  collections, call the Sunshine  Coast Regional District at  885-2261, leave your name and  number and ask for garbage  management assistance. Someone will return the call with  advice on good garbage  management practices.  ; Plan to have your recyclables  at curbside by 8 a.m. to ensure  pick up. Because of the nature  of the pick up the timetable will  be altered slightly during recycling weeks.  "Sechelt  Song"  by Steve Hubert  I'd like to clarify what's going on with the "Sechelt song"  The song is entitled Sechelt  By The Sea and was created by  Mrs. Muriel Rheaume of  Sechelt.  Mrs. Rheaume is a gifted  songwriter and has many fine  compositions   to   her   credit.  The Village of Sechelt has expressed interest in adopting  Muriel's song as its own, and  negotiations for the purchase  Assisting in the presentation  of the song to the village were  Mrs. Jesse Morrison, music instructor of Gibsons, who actually scored the work, and  Nikki Weber of Halfmoon Bay,  who provided the studio for the  production of the demonstration tapes (Strings 'n Things,  Sechelt).  Continued from page 1  hoping that governmental expertise will come into play,  whereby research can be done  into slope stability, and the  potential damage from slides.  "We've had the creek flood  for the past three years," Kerpan explained. "For the last  two winters there were at least  two occasions when the road  was impassable where the creek  crosses the road. Roberts Creek  (site of a serious flood last  winter) is a gentle slope compared to this. We're living on  the edge of a mountainside. The  houses on the perimeter of DL  3259 are built on stilts it's so  steep.  "We want this, done before  logging begins, so that if, in the  future, there is a slide, we'll  have some legal recourse, not  like M Creek or Roberts Creek,  where it was deemed an Act of  God," he continued.  Land values have decreased  in recent years, and residents  fear that further logging and the  installation of another booming  ground would drive the values  even lower.  "There's a lot of money invested in this community" Kerpan added, "a lot of people live  here, and have a lot of money  invested in their property. They  pay a lot in taxes, over many  years that builds up. Not to  mention what they invest in the  community. It's a lot more than  Bill Davis has invested in his  property up there."  Brett McGillivray had  nothing but praise for the  reasonableness and thought-  fulness of the residents present  at the Sunday meeting.  "They were angry and upset,  but we saw energy being  directed into something positive," he said, in conversation  with the Coast News.  "You have to understand  that this area is prime for  tourist-related activities,"  McGillivray added. "We should  be trying to enhance the natural  beauty. We realize that the logs  are going to come out, but they  don't have to go in the water at  Tuwanek.  "A lot of positive things came  out of the meeting," he continued. "The regional board has  to begin to get into regular and  on-going dialogue with forestry.  We have to anticipate problems  as opposed to reacting to them.  As it is, we don't talk until the  conflict happens.  "As for the logging, the  SCRD has no say in that,  because the land is privately  owned," McGillivray continued. "We can however express a hope that the logger will  be tactful about the way he does  it. It would be in the best iff-  terests of everyone not to clei&r  cut. "'���������.:$  "The potential debris fiow|  a very real concern," he saicf.  "This is a serious concern frorti  the hazard perspective and wje  are looking into that." ^  McRae was also impressed by  the positive and reasonable apf-  proach of the residents. "It wa  an incredible show of suppor  for rethinking hew that area i|  headed," he said in an interviev  with the Coast News. "We'v*  started the wheels rolling, to se|  what's required in order to gf}  things going. Anyone can say  it's going to change but we havf  to work towards that end," h|  said. H  The issue will arise at the  Thursday, September 26 SCRE}  meeting which begins this week  with a public meeting at 7 p.m��  on the Lamb Bay bylaw change!  and will address the Tuwan_k  issue at approximately 8 p.m/'  AS.T   Nt W"--  CLASSIFIEDS  Peninsula  Market  ^tU'CldV  ���Q WORKWEN?  /IK WORLD'S -  Sale Starts  Sept 23-28  55_S5#  *fr  1 ST QUALITY  MEN'S  FLANNEL  SHIRTS  ��� 100% COTTON  FLANNEL  ��� PLAIDS OF BLUE,  BROWN, RED  ��� SIZES S, M, L, XL  ���.**  &��  ^rtWtA7*'Ui  * i��? * r  r      ���** *--' I*. _ L _ :  ���5ft _^^*�����"���ll^,  mH f> 1ST QUALITY  V** CANADIAN MADE  MEN'S BOOT CUT  JEANS  >S)  4    ��  *-*���**���'*  $&*  v^  2 SHIRTS  ��� 133/4 OZ.

Mrs.  Li! Flumerfelt, founder of the  Roberts Creek branch of the St.  Mary's Hospital Auxiliary, was  talking to the Coast News last  week about her 21 years in the  organization.  Sitting at her kitchen table  with two piles of beautifully  knitted baby clothes, one group  for the Grace Hospital and the  other for St. Mary's, Mrs.  Flumerfelt talked about setting  up the branch and how she felt  about volunteering.  "We had 40 members at the  first meeting and the administrator of the hospital (then  located at Pender Harbour)  came along to talk to us," she  remembered.  "Back in those days we'd  visit the hospital and take a  basket along, check on all the  patients to see what they  wanted, check to see if it was  allowed, go out to the store to  buy whatever was needed and  then distribute," Mrs.  Flumerfelt explained. "It didn't  take long to grow from there, so.  that now we have a gift shop  and we do many other services  for the patients," she continued.  "Of course, as in any  organization it's the willing  horses that get the work," she  said, "Our biggest need is for  younger workers who can share  some of the load. None of us  are that young anymore, except  for the candystripers. '  "You can learn a lot and  meet a lot of people who are  very informative," Mrs.  Flumerfelt continued. "There's  something for everyone. Take  the feeding program. Not  everyone can do that, it's  sometimes very difficult. But  the candystripers are very good  at it; kids are so much more  mature these days. I'm not sure  I could have done some of the  things they do when I was a  teenager.  "Even though I'm not young  any more I believe that the more  active you are the better you  feel. If you went by the way  your body felt you'd stay in bed  or hang around at home every  day," she laughed. "Getting  out and doing something makes  you feel better. It's very gratifying."  Every time you step into the  Thrift Store in Sechelt and buy  one of their bargains you are  adding to the coffers of the auxiliary and thereby helping to  make St. Mary's Hospital one  of the best equipped hospitals  of its size in the province.  The Hospital Auxiliaries,  since January 1970, have  donated $389,267.68 to St.  Mary's and even a brief perusal  of the equipment this money  has purchased will show that,  without the auxiliaries, we'd be  in a sad shape.  For example, over the past 14  years those funds have bought  microscopes, anaesthetic  machines, wheel chairs, orthopedic equipment, heart  monitors, a blood bank fridge,  x-ray equipment, surgical instruments, cardiac defibrillators, treatment tables, a foetal  heart detector, not to mention  the $11,000 worth of double  glazed windows, furniture, and  renovations to the pediatric  ward, as well as dozens of other  items.  But, as with any organization  there is a core group of regular  and reliable workers, and an  ever-present need for new  members with new ideas and  energy.  St. Mary's combined auxiliaries are having a membership  drive on September 27 and 28 to  recruit just such new members.  There will be members on hand  in the Sechelt, Gibsons and  Pender Harbour malls to give  information on activities and  needs   of   the   organization.  The members don't spend'all  their time raising money; they  also provide many services to  the patients of the hospital to  help make their stay, whether  brief or lengthy, more bearable  and less traumatic. There is a  hairdressing service, feeding  program, library service,  physiotherapy work, tending  the flowers, and .plants in- the  hospital.  The  members  provide  per-  sonal    touches   which   bring f  smiles to the patients' faces; and  keep the spirits up, a valuable  aid in the healing process.  For more information about  the auxiliaries, including the  Candystriper program for  teenagers, both boys and girls,  please call Vivian Tepoorten at  885-4508 or drop into your local  mall next weekend and talk to a  volunteer.

Police news  GIBSONS RCMP  A gas tank valued at $80 was  reported stolen on September  12. The tank was stolen from a  boat moored in the Granthams  area.  On September 14, the Super  Save Store located on North  Road reported the theft of a $50  bench.  SECHELT RCMP  Staff Seargent Ray Stelter has  joined the Sechelt RCMP  detachment taking over the  duties previously held by ex-  Seargent Douglas Burke. Stelter  was stationed in Dawson Creek  prior to his new posting.  beware  Speeders be warned!! As a  result of numerous complaints  received by our local detachment, efforts will be made by  our local police to apprehend  speeders in the Granthams and  Marine Drive areas.  A high incidence of speeding  occurs when drivers are rushing  to catch a ferry and speeds of 40  and 50 kilometers OVER the  legal speed limit have been  observed.  Regular radar patrols have  been instituted and drivers  speeding to catch a ferry will be  stopped, ticketed and will most  likely miss their sailing. The  presence of groups of school  children awaiting the school bus  along Marine Drive makes it  imperative to eliminate speeding  along that road. Speeders  should be aware that criminal  charges of dangerous driving  could be laid against them.

Coast News, September 23,1985  Primary job creation source  by Fran Burnside  Bob Skelly answers questions from the media after addressing the  Union of B.C.

That was the formula for economic recovery in  B.C. set out by provincial leader  of the New Democratic Party  Bob Skelly to over 900 delegates  at last week's Union of B.C.  Municipalities convention in  Vancouver.  "Welfare and Unemployment Insurance payments are  net drains on the economy,"  said Skelly, observing that, in  Prince George the amount of  those payments is equal to the  payroll of the pulp and paper  industry in that area. "As long  as there are so many people on  welfare and unemployment,  long-term economic recovery is  difficult, if not impossible.  "The private sector has been  handed the full burden of job  creation," he continued, "at a  time when it is already suffering  and in a weakened condition.  Rather than stimulate our local  economy, the present government has tried to attract foreign  investment with tax breaks and  to develop external markets. It  has ignored our domestic  economy."  In attacking unemployment  and the costs of welfare, Skelly  outlined a three-year goal of  producing 60,000 jobs over and  above the 30,000 jobs per year  which are normally created, and  noted that in the last 15 years,  the two years of highest job  creation were 1973 and 1974,  the years in which the NDP  governed.  "The majority of those on  welfare today are employable,"  he stated. "We have to match  those employable people to the  jobs created, appropriate jobs  at decent rates of pay. The  welfare budget must become  manageable."  Skelly cited the example of  the Labour government in  Australia, which has already  created 300,000 jobs in the third  year of a five-year plan, (it's  target is 500,000) using a "Jobs  First" approach.  "Australia now has the  fastest growing economy in the  west, equal to that of Japan,"  he said. "Not only has it been  able to reduce its deficit each  year, but it has also been able to  increase welfare, pension and  family allowance payments as  well."  Key to Skelly's plans for the  creation of jobs is stimulation  of the housing industry - "a key  component in any recovery programme" - through the investment of both private and corporate funds, and participation  in a massive public works programme  to  upgrade  deterior-  ATTENTION  BOATER  Thinking Of  Re-Powering?

The Federation of Canadian  Municipalities is advocating  such a programme, and the  federal government has agreed  to pay its share of the costs,  recognizing that the resulting  larger work force would increase government revenues  through taxation while reducing  unemployment costs.  "But the present B.C.  government is one of two provincial hold-outs (Alberta is the  other) for the municipal infrastructure improvements  plan," said Skelly, "a job creation plan which would lower  welfare and unemployment  costs, generate wealth and  create permanent assets."  Skelly said that, spread over  five years, the programme  would produce 4500 person  years of employment a year,  plus a resulting 9000 spin-off  jobs.  The second part of Skelly's  programme was the restoration  of the vital functions of the  economy - education, health,  social services, transportation  (highways and ferries) and  natural resources. As an example he pointed to the necessity  of a "strategy for survival" for  B.C.'s forests, and the job creation potential of managing the  resource.  The development of a long-  term economic plan was the  third factor deemed crucial.  "The Social Credit government lacks a long-term vision of  an economic future," he said,  "It lurches from one mega-  project to the next with only a  three or four year time horizon  in view," about the same frequency as elections.
