'���  Si  1  Preventive regulations ensure  No en vi ronmenf problems  with Norway's fish farms  by John Burnside  Chief of the Capilanos, Simon Baker, or Chief KhoMa cha, which means Chief Kindly Heart, visited tht  Sechelt Indian Band last week to celebrate the occasion of his 75th birthday. Sechelt Chief Stan Dixor  presented him with a framed picture and Chief Khot-la-cha in turn presented the Sechelts with an impressive photograph of himself in his full regalia. ���Dianne Evans photo  Nanoose Bay convention  Nuclear accidents  in Gulf of Georgia  feared  by Iris Griffith  "If someone wanted to put a  nuclear reactor on land in B.C.,  we- would have environmental  studies, and make safety plans  to protect the surrounding  population. Nuclear-powered  submarines can . have melt  downs and other accidents.  They are reactors. Here in the  Nanoose area, they are in essentially inland waters."  This observation came from  researcher Patricia Willis in  Nanaimo last weekend. Willis  was one of a dozen experts  making presentations to the  People's Enquiry into Canadian  Forces' Maritime Experimental  Test Ranges, held January 18  and 19 at the Coast Bastion Inn.  The ranges, run jointly by the  Canadian and US Navies, test  anti-submarine devices north of  Nanaimo and in Jervis Inlet on  the Sunshine Coast.  A capacity audience of nearly  500 heard Robert Aldridge,  former design engineer of the  Polaris and Trident missile  systems describe anti-sub warfare as an essential element of  first strike capability. Nanoose  Ranges test torpedos, depth  bombs, rockets and mines although their nuclear components, if any, are developed in  Nevada.  Radiation experts Drs. Rosalie Bertell and Robert Woollard  said "We are told the military  are measuring low level radiation around Nanoose, but there  is no reporting to the public."  Fishermen's Union executive  Arne Tomlinson dealt with hazards to the marine environment  posed by the testing ranges and  nuclear subs, such as radio active contamination of sea- weed  and shellfish.  Art Kube of the B.C. Federation of Labour felt Nanoose  military facilities should be non-  nuclear and Canadian only.  The only . political party  represented was the NDP as  Ted Miller, former MP for  Comox-Alberni, gave his  party's policy. Liberals and  Conservatives, invited to do  likewise, had indicated they had  no speakers available. Tory MP  Ted Schollenberg had pleaded a  prior commitment, although he  was invited four-months in advance according to Gabriola  Island Peace Association, who  sponsored the People's Enquiry.  Doctors press for peace  "We will-work with the Sunshine Coast Peace Committee  on all issues. After all, we agree  with them," said Dr. David  Yaxley, who addressed the  Peace Committee's January  meeting held at Roberts Creek  Elementary School last Monday. Dr. Yaxley was representing local physicians who are  members of Physicians for  Social Responsibility.  Its world-wide umbrella  organization is called International Physicians for the  Prevention of Nuclear War, and  includes a large membership in  the USSR, some of them from  the Kremlin.      .   .'            ���  This is the group which won  the recent Nobel Peace Prize for  its work in increasing the  public's awareness of the consequences to humanity of nuclear  war. Its membership includes  over 40,000 physicians in the  US, over a thousand in Canada  and several hundred in B.C.  There are four active members  on the Sunshine Coast.  The film, If You Love This  Planet, with Dr. Helen  Caldicott of Australia Was produced by Physicians for Social  Responsibility and has had an  impact on millions of people.  In  response  to a question  about the reaction of other local  doctors to the group, Dr. Yaxley said it was generally supportive. A typical comment, he said  was, "I think that's great. I'm  glad someone's doing some  thing." He added, however,  that though the group encourages more local physicians to  join, most are reserved and  don't. There are approximately  27 doctors and dentists on the  Sunshine Coast.  Dr. Yaxley reported that their  group has been asked to prepare  a curriculum of their position  on nuclear war so that it may be  presented to the local schools.  No severe environmental pro-  ^ blems have been encountered in  Norway because of fish farming, according to the Norwegian  Consulate in Vancouver.  Vice-Consul Ole Lumby outlined the history of fish farming  in Norway in a conversation  with the Coast News last week.  - "Trout farming has taken  place in Norvvay for most of this  century," said the Vice-Consul.  The farming of salmon got seriously underway in about the  " 1950's.     .  ��� "Until the 1970's," said Vice-  ConsuI Lumby, "there were no  ,  limitations imposed on fish far-  y rning. By 1973 the great interest  iifi establishing-new farms led to  s the introduction of licensing requirements."  On June 8, 1973 the Norwegian Parliament passd an act to  ^lead and control the new industry'". All applications con--  A tinued to be granted unless there  !  was a clear risk of disease or in**  - terference with sea lanes but a  '^ceiling was put on the size of the  farms.   According   to   Vice-  Consul Lumby this was to en-  >i sure that the practitioners 'had a  '" handle - on   the   situation   including disease control'.  The ' Norwegian experience  also indicates that the size of the  farm is, a determining factor in  its profitability. The 5000 - 8000  cubic metre size limitation imposed in 1973 was comfortably  within the 5000-17,000 cubic  metre range of maximum pro-  fitablitiy. Below 5000 cubic  metres and above 17,000 cubic  metres the profitability, of the  fish farms fell off sharply, the  more so in the upper end of the  range.   .���  "It isn't smart for farm sizes  to get too large,"; said Vice-  Consul Lumby. New farms are  limited to 5000 cubic metres until it is apparent that they are  well run; established farms with  a good record of disease control  are permitted to expand to 8000  cubic metres;  Smolt producers are limited  to the production of one million  smolts at each plant and in all  operations related to fish farming local people are given preference by the Norwegian government.  In 1977 a moratorium was  imposed on the issuance of new  fishing licences but again  neither disease problems nor environmental concerns were a  factor in the decision.  "By 1977 it was becoming  apparent," said Vice-Consul  Lumby, "that there were too  many producers and too few  markets. We couldn't sell the  product."  New markets were developed  with the help of the Norwegian  government. In 1981 the mora*:  , torium was lifted and an increase of 10 per cent in total  volume of fish farms was perf  mitted/ :;^,':'.vv, . :;������ .i'  In the spring of 1984 a fur^  ther relaxation of the regiila*^  tions took place with the dev-;*  elopment of /bufgeomng mar-v  kets and an overalJ yoljirne in-1  crease of between 70 and 80 per;:  cent was permitted. At this time?  existing* farms were allowed to";:  expand to 8000 cubic metres-;-  arid the farming began of other>  . species of fish. .:'�����*���  Of these other varieties vot;  fish the most successful .in Nor-?  wegiari waterc is cod which^  grows on fish farms three tcfr  four times faster than it does inf  the wild. :  By 1985 there were 1190 fish  farming operations in Norway^  of these 333 were hatcheries;,'  305 were smolt plants; and 551.  were grow-out farms. In addi-!  tion 28.6 shellfish operations  have been started up since 1982.';  The story of.Norwegian fishfarming is obviously a story of*  continued   and   spectacular-'  growth. The regulations have-;  been instituted not because of  environmental damage but to>  ensure control of disease, the'  lack of interference with sea  lanes, and the availability of  markets for the fish produced. -  Staff feels it prohibitive  Gibsons prepares to cut  back oh revitalizatiorr  ��**.*&'  The second phase of the  downtown Gibsons revitaliza-  tion may have to be pared down  by more than half, council  agreed last week.  The projected cost of phase  two was set by the previous  council at $250,000 but last  Wednesday clerk-treasurer Lorraine Goddard told the planning  committee that the figure may  have to be substantially reduced  because benefitting property  owners will have to pay back at  least 20 per cent of the phase  two loan.  Phase one was undertaken  completely by the town on a  short-term borrowing scheme  but phase two, she said, must  now be financed long-term and  therefore, under the Municipal  Act, the benefitting area must  pay back a portion of the loan.  She said the previous council  had lost sight of the fact and she  was reminded in a letter from  the provincial government giv-  SCRD  plans  for water  Almost $140,000 worth of  work will be undertaken by the  Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) on the replacement  of mains in 1986, announced  works superintendent, Gordon  Dixon at last Thursday's SCRD  public utilities meeting.  Top priority goes to the pipe  which extends from Veterans to  Pratt Road, completion of  which will give adequate fire  protection to Cedar Grove Elementary School.  This project, estimated to  cost $60,000, will be paid for  out of a $100,000 provincial  grant for the Roberts Creek  reservoir. Funds for the remaining projects, which include  work in -the Davis Bay School  yard, on Sechelt Inlet Road, at  Sandy Hook and on Trout Lake  Road, have already been budgeted ,  ing approval to phase two.  Council has already borrowed  to its short-term limit on phase  one, she said.  The smallest portion of  repayment approved so far to  benefitting areas, according to  Goddard, is 25 per cent. "Some  pay as much as 75 or 80 per  cent. Our $250,000 figure, even  squeezed through at 20 per cent,  would still come to $50,000,  which I.feel is, prohibitive."  Alderman Bob Maxwell said  staff should prepare a thumbnail review to determine  whether specific improvements  will benefit the entire town or  just the lower area.  Planner Rob Buchan said the  question needs a careful answer  because of some public misconceptions.  "There has been a feeling expressed," he said, "that all the  money is spent downtown,  which is true: the whole program is geared toward down  town, upgrading core development. But it's important for the  public to grasp that, while we  have two downtowns, only one  could be eligible for low-interest  loan payments."  Alderman Norm Peterson  called for a scaled-down priority  list, with a maximum cost of  $100,000, to be reviewed by  council at a later meeting.       ;  "We did so much with  $90,000 last year," he saidj.  "We could get a lot of work  done for a hundred to beautify  the various areas." '>  Peterson's recommendation  was carried. ���  Goddard told the Coast News  the next day that she had  assumed that the "benefitting  area" would mean local mer-v  chants between Armours Beach  and the Ritz Motel, but now  there is talk about including  residential property owners in  the area as well.  "It hasn't been finally determined," she said.  House numbers for  Areas E & F  Residents in Electoral Areas E and F will receive their  house numbers along with their recycling questionnaires early  in February, it was announced at last Thursday's regional  board planning committee meeting.  In order for the numbers to be effective residents are asked  to ensure that the numbers themselves are at least four inches  in height and displayed in a place which is visible from the  road.  Dump open  The Gibsons dump will re-open officially for everything except household garbage, it was announced at last Thursday's  regional district public utilities meeting.  The dump will be operated by Selma Derby who will post a  rate schedule according to quantities of garbage, e.g. 1 bag, 1  pick-up load, etc.. The money collected will go to the operator of the site.  The site will be cleaned up before it is taken over, and water storage according to Pollution Control Board specifications will be provided.  The site will be open five days per week, Wednesday to  Sunday, and the agreement with the regional board gives  Mrs. Derby the use of the site for five years at a cost of $1 per  annum and a ninety day clause for either party to opt out of  the agreement.  t^e^  e^  v^  Support  Jan. 25th - Feb. 4th Coast News, January 20,1986  \  Facts  \r  and figures  Perhaps someone with more mathernatic flair than is  available in a newspaper office on production day will  compare the facts and figures from the Norwegian Consulate with what is happening here on the Coast. It does  seem to us the Norwegians have been eminently sensible.  As the writer of one of the letters in the paper this week  observes, we have left our forestry up to big government  and big industry and the result has been disastrous shortsightedness the extent of which we have only just begun to  perceive.  It doesn't seem unreasonable that we should consider  the Norwegian experience and practice - now that we know  what it is.  Council  comment  Gibsons Council seems, with the aid of Planner Rob  Buchan, to be addressing economic development with a  worthwhile sense of purpose. His suggestion concerning  development cost charges seems to be a good one.  On the other hand we hope they will not be too quick to  back away from the Second Phase of Revitalization  already proposed. There is a sustainable argument that the  parking lot portion of the project should not be paid by  the whole community, since the business community at the  top of the town had to provide their own parking. Perhaps  figures can be developed and presented for consideration.  The Clerk-treasurer's observation that previous council  'overlooked' the necessity for the benefitting area to  assume some responsibility is noted. Is.it hot her responsibility to ensure that councils do not 'overlook' matters of  import? She will recall her predecessor allowed council to  overlook important matters and it cost him his job.  5 YEARS AGO  The Powell River Regional District has come out  strongly in support of regional board chairman David  Hunter's appeal for the immediate construction of a  Gibsons by-pass on the Sunshine Coast Highway.

SUBSCRIPTION RATES  Canada: 1 year $30; 6 months $18; Foreign: 1 year $35  I got "a call from Oddyin  Vedo last week from Prj$ce  Rupert. Oddvin was Pj?r,naps  -understandably concerned  about the editorial\i^ch;vap-tV  peared in the January��� 13 issue!  of the Coast News under the?  heading: 'Why didn't Oddviri I  tell us?'.  There  were  four  principal  points  of concern,  and  after  . discussion   with   the   former'  Economic Development Com-i  missioner I assured him I would p  clarify or correct any misapprehensions  that  might  have  been left by the newspaper's .  editorial.  First, let me say as I have said  many times  before that  full  credit should be given to Mr. ���  Vedo   for   raising   the   con-!  sciousness   of   the   Sunshine-  Coast and indeed the province  of British Columbia, about the  possibilities  Tying   on   our  doorstep in the form of iish far:  ming potential. For this reason  alone his time as an employee of;  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) has been well .'���������  justified.  Let it also be said that Oddvin is a likable, hard working  man and I agree to a consi- <  derable extent with the writer  this week who in a letter to the  editor observes that it is re-1  freshing to meet a civil servant  more interestested in doing his  job than in just keeping it.  This said and in reflection, I  must say that I dp not find the  editorial in question strays from  the bounds of fair comment.  First to the clarifications: Od-  ddvin makes the point that his  two trips to Norway while  Economic Development Commissioner were initially paid for  out of his own pocket. He has  been promised the refunding of  the expenses of the first trip by  the SCRD and the refunding of  his travel expenses for the second by the provincial government. Neither refund has yet  materialized.  On the reference to Oddvin's  support of the export of water  from Freil Falls, he tells me he  has now changed his position  because of 'the fragile marine  environment' in Hotham  Sound!, Well and good, but the  fact remains when his economic  commission objected to his support of .the Freil Falls proposal  ���in 1984 it is not inaccurate to  use the word 'disdain' to  describe Oddvin's reaction to  the expressed concerns. Despite  ^'"xp^ssed !p|>sM6^^aJnst|ine  nomic Develdphient Commission (Br^aiib^ the SCRD ho  letter went ?to the provincial  government to refute the commissioner's ^original letter for  several months?  Oddvin's view is that this lack  of refutation was not his fault  and he may be right. He needed  no directions from either body  to write the original letter,  however.  The nub of Oddvin's unhap-  piness lay in; the phrase which  referred to his 'wayward unac-  countability to the taxpayers'.  Let me hasten to make clear  that this does not mean any  significant difficulties with matters financial.-  There was an! on-going battle  with other SCRD burearucrats  about Oddvin's expense accounts but T do not feel that to  be significant enough to be  publicly discussed.  On behalf of Oddvin, it could  be said that one could wish the  SCRD employees in question  were as vigilant about scrutinizing all SCRD expenses as closely  as they scrutinized the expenses  of the Economic Development  Commissioner.  No, the unaccountability in  question has more to do with  how one sees the job. The subject of the editorial was the  Norwegian policy on regulating  fish farms. We carry as accurate  an account as we can realize  about these regulations in this  issue. They are not onerous;  they have hot inhibited the  growth of the Norwegian industry. Had the regional board  been fully informed by Oddvin  of the regulations they might  have been better placed to make  sensible decisions  I take the view that Itwas Od-  dvin's responsibility, as someone being paid from the public  purse, to inform his employers  as fully as possible about the  new industry.  The failure to fully inform his  employers about the regulations  in place in Norway is, in my  view a,lack of accountability.  After all, it is the clean waters of  the Coast and its proximity to  the American markets which  make it attractive to fish farm  investors - surely not a lack of  regulation.  A year ago when the renewal  of the commissioner's contract  was being discussed the point  was made that, while that por-  tion of the Sunshine Coast frorn  Roberts Creek to Port Mellon  paid 55 per cent of his salary it  got precious little of his time. It  was agreed and made policy  that one full day each week  should be spent in the  Municipal Office in Gibsons to  assist entrepreneurs in that portion of the Coast. I think only  one visit of one or two hours  was actually made to Gibsons  despite the inductions given.  The failure to pay adequate  attention to half of the Sunshine  Coast despite instructions to do  so is a lack of accountability.  It was the opinion of members on both the EDC and the  SCRD that too much of the  Commissioner's time was being  taken up by Richard Tomkies  of the Sunshine Coast Tourism  Association. When not actively  involved with fish farms, it  seemed, the commissioner was  closeted with Tomkies. In June  of 1985 in an after meeting  gathering at Gilligan's almost  every member of the EDC pressed upon the Commissioner the  view that he had to be more diversified in his activities. All  urgings fell on deaf ears.  It would appear that Tomkies  who on August 9, for example,  urged the helicoptering of people in to fish at trout stocked  lakes, ("By the time they find  out you need a permit you'll be  long gone.") seems to share Oddvin's distaste for regulations  and, it can be fairly presumed,  to have encouraged him in a  confrontational stance with his  employers.  I would argue that the confrontational stance led to the  present avoidable furore over a  much-needed new industry and  the loss to the SCRD "of an  employee who, despite some  rough edges, brought a high degree of motivation to his assigned tasks. Those paid from the.  public purse, however,-must be  fully accountable to the representatives of the public.  The furore about Scantech's *  operation developed from the  fact that the SCRD and the  voting public feel it was sprung  on them without warning. A  copy of a map which hung in  Vedo's office, indicates that he  was aware of Scantech's plans a  full three months before the  farm appeared. That he did not  inform his employers is, again  in my view, a serious lack of accountability in a public servant.  .   by Dianne Evans  There are times in one's life  when the temptation to say, "I  told you so" is too strong to  resist even though one risks appearing smug.  It doesn't hapijen often on a  scale that's large enough to  worry about but an incident  about local fish farming which  came to. light just recently set  me off on a train of thought  which took me back almost 20  years to another/time when 'I  told you so' was the only thing  to say after it was all said and  -'done.. ?   ���  l was in Bangkok in 1968,  staying at a seedy Chinese hotel  called the Thai Song Greet. In-  those days there were thousands  of travellers on the road in  South-east Asia and many of  them found their way to this  cheap, marginally clean 'establishment.  It was the place to go for  hews and information - here  you heard about similar places  in Calcutta or Penang, about  immigration requirementsy in  Australia and the price of Illegal  substances in Kabul. Here the  stories of the road across Asia  and the Middle East were told  over cups of hideous coffee or,  if you; were in the ? know j excellent hot chocolateV; ���    ���/'  It was at the Thai Song Greet  that I met Guy. He was from  San Franqsco.y^pung,' blond,  handsome in a square-jawed  kind of way; hora-rimmed  glasses sat on his nose the1 way  they do on Christopher Reeve's  in his role as Clark Keht|puy  was riding a fancy bicycle across  Asia and had as his destination  London; England. \      /    !;  He was earnest, serious and  efficient; his back pack contained the latest in thermal underwear and a space blanket that  weighed an ounce',and could  keep you warm in a deep freeze.  He had also been to Laos on his  bicycle arid he had/some interesting stories to tell. *  ���    He was on his way to the northern capital, Luang Prabang,  riding on goat trails and country  vroads^ staying^mji-yjHages or  [sleeping under the stiffs, if  -    Until  one  night  when  he  couldn't seem to find a place to  settle down' and,  during his  search, stumbled across a chain-  link fence.  A chain-link fence in the middle of the Laotian countryside is  so improbable as to be incredible, and Guy decided that he  had to follow it and find out  just what it was that needed  containing in such a fashion and  in such a remote place.  He bedded down in a less  than satisfactory spot and slept  until dawn, then followed the  fence for hours, through some  fairly dense jungle; He told me  that he could hear helicopters  frorn time to time but couldn't  see anything because of the tree  cover.  Then he cariie to an open area  where he found himself face to  face with: a fully fledged "airfield ... Except that none of the  helicopters had markings other  than camouflage and none of  the personnel that he could see,  had any kind of insignia which  would indicate their country of  origin.  Naturally they saw my friend,  and of course they came put to  get him and find out what the  blazes a young man on a bicycle  was doing outside their compound in the middle of Laos.  They were Americans and  they took my friend in for questioning. They kept him that day  and over-night - he supposed  they checked Stateside for  criminal records and political  activities - and then they let him  go. He said it was like a dream,  the compound, the helicopters  coming and going, the trerhenr  dous activity, the fact that they  let him leave at all he found  bizarre. r:  It was bizarre because at that  time Laos was neutral and there  were not supposed to be any  American military personnel inside the country. The Ho Chi  Minh trail wound its way  through the eastern portion of  the country and that too compromised Laotian neutrality. Of  course, in another couple of  years the bombing of Laos  would take place, another secret  that was kept for years frorn the  rest of the world.  When I heard Guy's story I  was dismayed, although ;not  shocked - South-east Asia was  rife with rumour in those days  and it was obvious that there  Please turn to page 15 Coast News, January 20,1986  Support for recycling is urged  Editor:  To recycle or not to recycle,  '������ that is the question.  i     Before the decision to settle  ; here on the coast I had lived and  '. travelled extensively in Canada.  - Never had I been aware of a  recycling program so extensively  i undertaken as the one instituted  c here by our regional district.  lr Certainly  there   have  been  communities, large and small,  ] which attempted to set up re-  } cycling depots;  all eventually  f closing due to lack of participa-  I tioh (if we can't take recyclables  ^ to our own curbsides, will we  'l then load them and drive them  somewhere else on a regular  basis?)  j    This extraordinary program  j must be something of a first in  .

Such nerve! ,  ; Yes in the short run it is a little extra effort, but like any  '������ worthwhile endeavour, a little  effort will give us greater  returns. We must stop pretending that when the garbage collectors scoop up our refuse each  week, that is the end of it.

We should not let  all the energy gone into this go  to waste (no pun intended).  We should instead be proud  of our initiatives - shout it from  the rooftops. Tell the tourists  -we are the Clean-Conscious  Coast.  Perhaps there are some problems to be ironed out, but a  foresighted venture like this  needs our whole-hearted community support.  ; The major, change I would  recommend for a more effective  and popular recycling program,  is a monthly, not a bi-weekly  pick-up of recyclables.  There are several good  reasons for this:  1. Only !4''of.our garbage is  said to be recyclable - in my  home I personally know this to  be the case.  2. It is too easy to confuse  which week is which at present,  while "First Thursday" or a  "Third Wednesday" etc. Would  be much easier to remember.  3. It would somewhat appease those who for one reactionary reason or another will  refuse to participate.  In closing I would say that if  recycling becomes "in addition  to" regular garbage pick-up,  then it will be A) too costly and,  B) not an integral part of garbage collection and so will surely die off.  Therefore recycling must be  either a component of regular  pick-up or be disbanded altogether. Let's do the mature, responsible thing and be a good example to our children. Let's  support recycling.  Gayle Preston  Ours is the responsibility  Editor:  Re: No profit in street  tragedy  Many of the points raised in  Dianne Evans' recent column  are reasonable and accurate.  However, she misses the main  point. The most generous funding of the Ministry of Human  Resources will still only provide  a Band Aid solution.  The government has not  created the problem. There are  similar problems throughout all  of North America regardless of  the political stripe of the local  governments.  We' as a society only have to  look in a mirror to see who has  created the problem. We live in  a society where the problems  surrounding alcohol abuse exceed the problems related to ail  other restricted drugs combined. Yet we laugh about the person at a party who has too  much to drink and makes a fool  of himself. How often do we  hear people say "I don't  remember what I did at the par-  Problem  is  ignorance  Editor:  Having worked on a trout  farm for six years, my feeling is  that the public opinion of fish  farms and the aquaculture industry is based principally on ignorance.  For the first time, in as many  years, the community is given  the opportunity to participate in  the establishment of an environmentally compatible in- .  dustry, and the people involved  are harrassed and discouraged  to the point of despair and  disgust.  Specifically, I want to thank  Oddvin Vedo for the excellent  job he has done as Economic  Development Commissioner, to  whom much of the credit must  go for giving many of the young  people something besides welfare to look forward to. It is  unusual, indeed, to find a politician or bureaucrat more interested in doing their job than  protecting it.  In order for people to better  understand how they can con-  tribute and help build an important new industry please mail  me your phone number and I  will contact you immediately.  Michael Albright  Box 2, RR 1, Tyson Rd.  Sechelt, BC  Editor's note: We would suggest for the writer's consideration that at least some of the  public ignorance he refers to has  been occasioned by the ill-  advised witholding of information by Mr. Vedo. See Musings.  Thanks  Editor:  I'd like to express my appreciation to your newspaper  for the coverage of the recent  by-election for school trustee in  the Town of Gibsons.  I wish to assure the electors  that I will strive to maintain the  high level of commitment that  has been demonstrated over the  past 4 years.  It is my belief that through  the concerted efforts of this  community we can make 1986 a  year to remember. All the best  to everyone.  Mrs. J.

There must be a demand for  14 year old prostitutes or they  would not be on the street. If  she was taking drugs it was likely to escape.

I had certainly not intended to imply that  we are not a part of the problem, simply that the government's policies have exacerbated the situation.

The  young girl has in fact been  diagnosed as having the AIDS  virus, but fortunately has not  succumbed to the disease.  My argument with the government's priorities stiir stands.  Editor:  Although lately we have  heard little in the news about  the US Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) or Star Wars, this  project is still very much alive.  The Canadian Government has  been ��� asked to reconsider its  earlier decision not to formally  participate in this program.  The effectiveness of the SDI  has been widely disputed by the  US scientific community as well  as by members of the military.  Major General Donald L. Lam-  berson, chief of the 'Directed  Weapons' Program in the US  Department of Defense has  stated that the SDI "might  negate 50 per cent of a large-  scale ICBM (Inter Continental  Ballistic Missile) attack on the  US strategic forces." This  would still allow 'about 2500  megatons to get through the  Star Wars defenses.  The US scientific community  initiated a petition in 1983 to  ban all weapons in space, and  have responded negatively to  the SDI proposal both in discussions with President Reagan as  well as in numerous published  papers.       ;  The list of reasons why the  program should not be instituted is a long one. The ques  tion of whether or not Canada  should be aligned with this program is onewhich all Canadians  should be asking themselves. *  If you would like to become  better informed on the SDI, dn  Canada's role(in ��� SDI, or cjh  Canada's role in Norad, ycfti  should plan to hear Gary MaJ-  chant, vice-president of End th>  Arms Race, who will be shoeing slides, giving a talk, arid  holding a discussion in the  Lunch Room at Elphinstone at  7:30 p.m., January 22.

Teaching the other students  what it is like to be disabled and  to have to cope with tasks like  tying shoelaces or completing a  jig-saw puzzle is one of the aims  of the special education program, and most of the students  at Gibsons Elementary have  taken part in the-same exercises  as the trustees.

"In my 57 years of playing  crib this was my first perfect  hand. Hands of 28 have come  my way often enough but now  here's one to frame for the  family record."

Principal Mr. W.L.

"Children quite often miss  the bus," Reid told the board,  "and with a three o'clock dismissal that will happen less  often."  Trustee Doris Fuller said that  she had always been a bit annoyed that the buses dictate the  instructional day and other trustees expressed concern that  students are presently missing  the bus occasionally. They agreed that the shorter lunch hour  would help alleviate the problem, but they asked that both  students and parents be consulted on the change before it is  implemented.

The  trustee was then required to  complete a simple task, without  using the fingers themselves or  the palms of the hands. The  partner observed reactions and  kept notes.

The reactions of the trustees  were the same as those the  students express - embarrassment, frustration, feelings of  stupidity, humiliation, anger,  determination - these too are the  feelings many disabled children  have themselves, and carry with  them every day.

T  ���  ���ssssrr  Who is Erin?  .: Recently an announcement  was made that the Halfmoon  Hams are planning a benefit  show for the Erin Kelly Van  Fund. Since then the question is  being asked -who is Erin Kelly?  Erin has just had his seventeenth birthday and lives with  his parents Jim and Katherine  Kelly and brother Quinn on  Redrooffs Road in Halfmoon  Bay. He was born with a muscle  weakness which has confined  him to a wheelchair for life.  5 He attended Halfmoon Bay  School, Sechelt Elerhentary,  and at present is a pupil at  Chatelech Secondary School.  He is popular among his school  friends and is a hard working  student.  The main reason that Erin is  not too well known outside his .,  close circle of friends is that he  is a very capable and independent young man who never exploits his situation nor seeks  sympathy. Erin never asks for  anything.  ||The idea of a van took hold  when it was found that there  were some funds left over, from  those raised for a special  wheelchair for Seamus Hen*,  nessey. The Hennesey family requested that the remaining $755  be given to assist a handicapped  young person in the community  who had a special need.  The fund committee comprising Bud Koch, Vern Wishlove  and April MacKenzie-Moore  decided to put the money in a  trust fund to assist Erin Kelly  obtain a small van equipped  with the necessary lift.  It took lots of guts and  courage for Erin to pass his  driving test which he recently  accomplished, but it must be  very difficult when one is seventeen to have to depend on someone lifting you and your  wheelchair in and out of a vehicle. This small van would be the  answer which would give this  lad the independence he so  richly deserves.  This goal will take some time  to achieve and will only be  possible with the help of  everyone who cares, but even if  it takes years it would be  something for Erin to look forward to.  The Halfmoon Hams want to  keep the ball rolling on April 12  when all proceeds from the  show will go to this fund.  The trust; fund account has  already been set up in the Royal  Bank in Sechelt for the Erin  Kelly Van Fund and all donations, small or large will be appreciated to help make a young  fellow's dream a reality.

This committee will accept all written  ideas (dreams) at the next  general meeting on February 10.

Sechelt Seniors  by Robert Foxall  Branch 69 got the new year  off to a very good start on  Thursday with a well attended  monthly meeting. It was very  pleasing when the prevailing  weather was taken into account.  I think everyone was happy that  we were starting a new. year and  meeting .with;friends ;we, had  missed during .the;-festive  season. ,     -    r-  I was reminded of a saying  we had when I was} a :boy,  "Make new friends but keep the  old, these are the silver/ those  the gold." It was godd to see the  old friends again.  After an exchange of greetings we were soon back to business again. We learned that our  building committee representatives will be in Victoria about  the time you are reading this account to make a pitch to the government in giving us some  guidance and assistance in getting our new hall started. Lhope  for a favourable report next  week.  A meeting has been arranged  for the beginning of the week  between our Committee Chairman Len Herder and representatives of the government to  discuss our efforts. Let's hope  for a favourable response. Our  membership at the beginning of  the year was 773. That makes  seniors practically an industry  because we represent a lot of  spending power.  We were handed lottery tickets for the provincial convention  .with the draw to be held May  2l4;.: Here's another chance to  help the seniors help themselves.  Sallyr Peace; sent a message  'that there would, be a dance  February 15 with tickets at $3  and there will be more dances to  be announced closer to the date  of the dance.

We- know that those who  abuse children have been abused themselves. The cycle must  be broken if we are to have a  healthy society. As upsetting as  it may be, the issue must be faced rationally and with concern  ���for every child in our communities.  I was fortunate to attend a  workshop by. Constable Alison.  Irons of the North Vancouver  RCMP. Her focus was on what  to do if you are the person to  whom a disclosure of some  form of abuse is made. She  stressed that each of us is required by law to report even a  strong suspicion to the RCMP  or Human Resources.  You can learn more on February 14, when the Red Balloon  Playgroup sponsors a special  film presentation, 7 p.m. at the  Legion Hall. Parents, grandparents, those who have any  contact with children are urged  to attend. I'll be'reminding you  as the date draws nearer.

Gunnar was born in Finland  where his father was a cabinet  maker. He had an apt pupil in  Gunnar and it was a craft that  served him well.  Young men in Finland had to  take military training and this is  where Gunnar found an interest  that lasted all his life; he became  a crack shot with a rifle. He left  his homeland when he was 21  years old, coming to the West  Coast of B.C. at the beginning  of the depression years.  Jordan River is where he logged first as a faller, later joining  up with Charlie McDermod to  log in the Sechelt Inlet.  He met his wife Marilyn in  Vancouver and married in the  late '30's. He served with the  Canadian Militia.  Wigard's shoe store was the  first in Sechelt. Gunnar built the  Wigard block to house the  business then moved from  Selma Park to live in the apartment above. He then built  another 'fine home in Selma.  Park and moved back there.  Gunnar was a charter member of the Sechelt Peninsula  Rod and Gun Club and his prowess at shooting rifle, shot gun  and hand guns earned him  many awards. He passed his expertise on by teaching others  through the Rod arid Gun pro-  grani. w.\-  There was an honour guard  from the Rod and Gun Club  consisting of Bill and Bea  Rankin, Dan Currie, Bud  Fearnley, George Flay, Bob  Janis, Howard Carter, Mary  Bannerman, Martie and Len  Clark, Archie and Sis Scott,  Leone Leech, Bob Keeley,  Doug William and Jan Pare,  plus the Sechelt Legion Branch  140 honour guard of Sam  McKenzie, Ivan Smith, Frank  Bonin and Don Motzer.  The Eastern Star provided  light refreshments.  There are many reminders of  Gunnar left including son  Spencer and Bonnie, with their  offspring Kim, Chris, Bradley  and Tara of Davis Bay; Lome  and Phyllis Wigard from Port  Hardy with sons Gunnar and  David; Roy and Helen Wigard  of Sechelt with family of two,  Debbie and Kenny; daughter  Susanne Materi, and son-in-law  Ken and children Michael and  Melissa and Ken's two from  Kelowna, Eric and Diana, making 12 grandchildren.  Then there is a niece in Vancouver and a nephew in Finland.  Minister Stan Pinkerton presented a fine memorial service;  Gunnar was a good citizen, a  splendid father, a help in the  community and has left a family  group that is an asset to the,  community.  time,  sp  ���A*  ���*��� ?.*:.  The;'large'humbers of land  referrals coming before the  regional board from the Ministry of Lands, Parks and Housing (LPH) is causing some concern to the directors who are  asked to make comments on  these -referrals which frequency  refer to areas in hard to get at  corners of the regional district.  ���':;���������'��� At last Thursday's regional  board meeting Area A Director  Gordon Wilson raised this con-,  cern when several referrals dealing with foreshore on Agamemnon Channel and Narrows Inlet  came before the board. Lands,  Parks and Housing asks for  regional district comments  within thirty, days, although an  extension of time may be requested.  "We don't have enough information,"    Wilson   said.  "What correspondence, if any  is there from the Ministry of  Environment, or Fisheries and  Oceans?  ��� 'With the information we get  (from LPH) it is almost impossible to do adequate site investigation within the limited  time we get," he continued.'  Planner Jim Johnstone  agreed that thirty days is a short  amount of time to do a thorough job although he pointed  out that LPH will give additional time if it is requested.  "We are asked to comment  ! within our expertise," he added.  Wilson asked the other directors what could be done to  ;change  things  with   LPH  to  rmake the process more effec-  ; tive.  "-5����*=S  "What caitfwe do?" he said,  "LPH doesn't live here and  they don't have to put up with  the environmental damage that  may happen.  "Are any inspections done by  environment or fisheries? Have  we attempted to get written  reports?" Wilson continued.  "What's happening is too fast  for the planning committee to  consider potential conflicts, not  only environmental but with  tourism and fishing and there is  no water zoning to protect us."  Wilson said that the board  should not have a knee jerk  reaction and say 'No more' but  should ask for more time and  more and better information  from LPH so that comments  can be made by the board and  by local Area Planning Commissions that will more accurately reflect the realities of the  situations.  Area E Director Jim Gurney  agreed.  "Everyone should have done  their homework and it should  come to us last," he said, meaning that reports from the ministry of environment, and other  agencies involved including  fisheries and oceans should be  included in the package which  comes from LPH.  "We do have a responsibility  to our electorate to protect them  as best we can," he added.  A letter to that effect is to be  sent to LPH and in the near future a trip will be undertaken by  interested directors to view  many of the areas under consideration at the present time.  .���<��..  ���<*>  Guest preacher  for United Church  The United Churches at  Davis Bay and Gibsons will be  welcoming another Guest  Minister on January 26 when  Reverend J.D. (Jock) Murdoch  of White Rock will be preaching  in both congregations. -  ; For almost a decade this well-  loved clergyman was the minister of Brighouse United Church  in Richmond, B.C. Prior to that  he served in the Queen Charlottes and Prince Rupert, and in  the years since his retirement  Jock Murdoch has been a well  received preacher and interim  pastor wherever a need for assistance arose.  This is the Murdochs' first  visit to the Sunshine Coast and  they will be overnight guests in  Davis Bay with Betty and Ernie  Wood, friends of long standing.  Reverend Alex Reid, West  Howe Sound's United Church  Pastor, has been persuaded by  his doctors to continue off duty  until the end of January to ensure full recovery from hospitalization during Christmas  week.  Reverend Reid is looking forward to being with both congregations on February 2 for  Communion Sunday and he  wishes to extend many thanks  for all the expressions of concern which he has received in recent weeks.

PART TWO  After our impromptu collaboration at Davis Bay, Ken  and I got together with  guitarist/instrument maker,  Mike Dunn and began working  out an act of sorts. It consisted  mainly of orchestrated poetry  with a couple of brief song  breaks. Ken and Mike would  take care of the songs and the  music; I'd read the poemsi (I  had no desire to try any more  vocalizing myself.)  Our first gig was a memorable one for a number of  reasons that had little to do with  the actual performance, it took  place in Powell River under the  auspices of Malaspina College.  The Powell River session did  not go entirely unnoticed.  Among the audience was a  visiting member of the Courtenay Arts Alliance. Shortly, I  received a letter from the president of this group, inviting us to  appear there as part of their  poetry program. I got together  with Mike and Ken and we honed up the act, adding some new  material including a Tom Waits  type song I had written for Mike  called Deepcity Blues,  Mike introduced this mor  dant little ditty in his best  whisky rasp at the Arts Alliance  Centre, to encouraging response.  Our second public performance went well in general. The  Arts Alliance people were very  hospitable and even videotaped  the event. There was no mad  Dr. Fogarty to disrupt the proceedings. A reporter from the  Comox District Free Press was  there and did a big spread on us.  His comments, while not too  flattering to my persona, were  primarily favorable:  "With fleshy red lips and a  pasty face reminiscent of  George C. Scott, Trower read in  a heavy, husky, word slurring  voice, his poems of death,  disease, degeneration and  ...humour. Perhaps it is his  humour, evident in poems like  Appointed Rounds and Jumbo  Jet (a Boeing 747 alternately  becomes an airborne barn and a  fleating fetus) among others,  that keep him upright, balanced  and ultimately surviving.  Friends Mike Dunn, guitar, and  Ken Dalgliesh, piano, put four  Trower poems to music, much  to the pleasure of all." .  It was our first press notice  and a pretty positive one. We  seemed to be on our way to  .U~i.s;>  Deepcity Blues  Sunday cafe, beer on a tray  sandwiches nobody eats  tickets to drown in a barshuttered town  lonesome on buttcluttered plates  refugees running from strait jacket rooms  reaching for voices and booze  fulltime regretters who never get letters  desperate deepcity blues.

The group's next stint was to  take us somewhat further  afield. An Arts Festival was being held on Saltspring Island in  the summer of 1977 and the  lady who ran the bookstore in  Ganges invited us to participate.  The money-wasn't much but we  needed all the exposure we  could get.   .:'..':���  The Saltspring gig somehow  ballooned into a regular safari.  We. ended up taking half the  Sunshine Coast mafia with us.  This jolly cast of crazies included: Charlie "The Ratcatcher"  Cairns; his lady, Lola; her  sister, Linda (Ken's lady),  sculptor, Dave Kydd; his wife,  Janet; John Fanstman and my  longtime crony, Bumside. By  boat and plane, we converged  on the hapless Gulf Island.  Fern, the bookstore lady and  Festival co-ordinator, had  bravely agreed to put most of us  up. She was renting a huge, old  farm house, near a canal-like inlet and had plenty of room. We  found our way there and set up  camp.  Fern had arranged for us to  perform on two consecutive  nights, at a local park. We'd  never done back-to-back gigs  before and I was a bit apprehensive. After all, we weren't exactly super stars and the audience  for this sort of thing was an  unknown quantity. However,  we were committed.  Performance wise, everything  went like clockwork on both  nights. The only thing wrong  was sparseness of the turnout.  After the good crowds in  Courtenay and Powell River,  the lack of attendance was a bit  disheartening. It was a good  thing we had brought our  friends with us. They must have  made up half the audience at the  ; second gig. But that's show biz,  ��� I guess. I did get to meet well  HkW>wn poet, Phyllis Webb, who  irvas kind enough to show up for  one of the readings. And we did  have a couple of great, hassle-  free  parties  at  Fern's   farmhouse. Plus, we got paid. There  .were compensations.       ;    |  After the Saltspring excursion, there was another falldw  period- 'Ken went, back to  teaching school; Mike, to his  guitar ;making. Then the call  came again, this time for an encore performance in Courtenay.  At least, the Arts Alliance still  loved us.  .

The excuse is always the  same, we can't afford not to use  these products, we want to have  our cake and eat it, we have to  stay competitive and make  money.  But money cannot buy  health. Money cannot buy  peace of mind. Money cannot  buy happiness. What good will  our much vaunted technology  be, and all the things it enables  us to do if the environment of  out planet is so deteriorated it  cannot any longer sustain life?  What happens when we have  cut down so much of our rain  forest that we upset the delicate  oxygen balance upon which life  as we know it depends?  Are we prepared for famine  on a vast scale in North  America when soil is so depleted  it can no longer produce the  quantities we've come to rely  on? What happens when toxic  wastes either airborne or water-  borne infiltrate more and more  of earth's life cycles?  Is our greed going to bequeath these problems to our  children and grandchildren?  Its time to recognise the truth  of the prophetic words of Pogo  "We have seen the enemy, and  it is us" and do something  about it.  Film on child abuse  A preview of the National Film Board film, Feeling Yes,"  Feeling No, will be held early in February, probably in  Sechelt. Trustees decided that an opportunity for parents,  teachers, arid public health, human resources, CUPE and  RCMP personnel would be desirable when the question was  raised at last Tuesday's school board meeting, held at Gibsons Elementary School.  The film will later be shown to intermediate students in the  school district as part of an educational program designed to  teach children the rights they have to control what happens to  their bodies. A special team which was set up following the  disclosures of sexual abuse by a teacher in the district last year"  has ajspinijia^ithe use of the CARE program for primary  grades in all elementary schools in the district.  Our coast must be more  heavily populated with artists  and craftspeople than almost  any other place on earth. There  are working studios, potteries,  ateliers and workshops hidden  away in the bush* all up and  down the coast.  The problem is that they are  too well hidden. Tourists roaring down the highway don't  . know that they have just passed  by two potteries, a painter's  studio and a carver's workshop.  In order to get tourists together with artists and craftspeople, the Expo Cultural Committee plans to print a list of all  local people who would welcome visitors to their studios  and workplaces at specific  times, on specific days^  The number of hours at  which visitors would"-" be  welcome need only be two or  three a week. In some well-  travelled tourist': areas in  Quebec, weavers and painters  make their whole year's income  from welcoming tourists in the  three summer months. The  visitors watch their , hosts at  work and then as often as not,  Meditation  research  A Sunshine Coast wide study  of the effects of Transcendental  Meditation (TM) on the community at large is presently being undertaken. Changes in  rates of crime, building starts,  sickness, family disruptions and  real estate activity are among  the factors to be studied.  All those who have been instructed in TM, or who are interested in receiving instruction  to become a part of the.study  are invited to call Daryl Henn,  at 886-3911. He would also like  to hear from anyone who would  have an interest in the research  or be prepared to act as an objective observer in the study.  On January 25 and 26 at 7.30  p.m. Channel 12, KVOS, will  air two��programs on Traris-  cendentai Meditation and current research into the technique  and its effects. Also on January  4,26, CKVU, Channel 13, will air  ^aspeciai^ on;TM; at;iQ.30 a.m.  '^ iand at midnight.    ^ ,;  make a purchase, not only  because they like the look of the  work, but also because they  have seen the artist at work. It is  a conversation piece to take  home - the best kind of  souvenir.  The list will be made available  free to as many tourists as possible, through accommodations  and merchants.  Anyone who wishes to be on  the list should get in touch with  one of the following: for Port  Mellon, Langdale, Gibsons and  Roberts Creek, phone Viv or  Mary Fallot at 886-3876; from  Wilson Creek through Pender  Harbour, phone Janet Dolman  at 885-2015.

Drop off your  COAST NEWS  C.LASS1FSEDS  at  Books * Stuff  Sachtilt  "������.. until noon Saturday  , Prtomily Paoptai PUbo*"  There are times when you have neither the time nor the  inclination to cook dinner and the prospect of getting  dressed up to go out on the town is unappealing.  It is at those times that picking up a burger or a pizza to  go is just the thing and there are plenty of places on the  Coast to suit the occasion.  In Sechelt there's the Chicken Shack - it isn't gourmet,  but the portions are generous and the chicken is always  juicy on the inside and crunchy on the skin, just the way it  should be.  The Chicken Shack's menu offers fried chicken, chicken  burgers, fries, chicken nuggets and salads as well as hamburgers and onion rings. The prices are reasonable and the  service is quick and friendly.  If it's a pizza you're after, Pronto's and Andy's in Gibsons offer a very wide selection - again, the service is prompt and your order comes with a smile.  And don't forget the Omega in lower Gibsons. There  the pizzas are on special until January 31 - a large for the  price of a medium, and a medium for the price of a small.  The pizzas are delicious and waiting is a pleasure with a  view of Gibsons Harbour to enthrall.  Many of the restaurants on the Coast are happy to oblige their customers with take-out orders, so the next time  the cook in your family says, 'No dinner tonight' pick up  the phone and order. Dinner's just a drive away, and there  aren't any dishes to do either.

Both Mark Jaegar. and Tony  ���Duffy met tough opponents in  their final bouts in the North  West Invitational Tournament.  At 165 pounds Jaeger almost  scored an upset victory over the  favoured Lance Gregory.  Jaeger, having lost both the  first and second rounds, almost  earned the knock-out he was  rallying for in order to stand  victorious. His rugged opponent however managed to hold  on and with admirable defensive tactics, weather Jaeger's  storm and earn the decision.  Duffey 16, met the American  Army's representative Peter  Valedoff in the finals. Valedoff  20, recently gained national  recognition by defeating the  number 1 ranked American at  139 pounds and then by losing a  split decision to the US national  champion.  Valedoff, up until a month  ago had been competing in the  147 pound and 156 pound category. How he makes it to 139  pounds is amazing.  Going into the third round,  Duffy was ahead on all five  judges' score cards. In the last  minute of the fight Valedoff  /stunned Duffy with a solid right  hand then dropped him with a  left hook. Duffy managed to  free himself from Valedoffs  determined attack but Army  landed the more significant ar-  ttillery to earnthe tournament ti- ���>y,.  LtLThe loss isnot ''a seriousone.

Tomkies'  letter  Press "Why the  Editor:  .JRe:   Richard  December 10  ^complaints"  "���It's easy; for Richard to make  -simplistic  remarks  about  the  -��� reasonable protests of the people who have.had fish farms  placed in front of their prime  residential waterfront properties. It doesn/t bother him, it's  no .money out of his pocket,  and doesn't ruin his view or  /neighbourhood.  .1 have had a fish farm placed  in front of my property and  have had appraisals that iri-  .' dicate that my property may  I depreciate in value by 10 to 50  ; per cent. If my .property .is  ; worth $200,000 that means I  ; may lose between $20,000 to  ; $100,000 if forced to sell.  Like other waterfront proper-  ; ty owners I purchased my pro-  ; perty mainly for the view and  ��� use of the foreshore. I now have  a four acre industrial site in  ' front of. me which may grow to  ��� 25 acres. Does he honestly think  ; I have no right to complain?  The people who are pro-  ; testing the location of  ; Scantech's fish farms and icing  plants are not against  aquaculture or the jobs it may  | create. We believe that fish  ;. farms can prospei* and create  '' jobs in areas where they will not  ' harm other people. All the other  '<��� fish farmers have done this.  How many people really  believe that a person would actually pay. more money for a  property beside a fish farm and  icing plant?  Some people believe there  should be a moratorium on the  granting of fish farm permits.  Richard asks, "By what rights  do they, seek to deny the rights  of others to work and  prosper?" I ask,' what right do  the fish farmers have to ruin  whole areas and cause financial  damages to already established  residents who have large investments in their properties.  I  also  feel  that intelligent  public debate about this industry will be beneficial for  everyone including the fish  farmers. We left our forests and  our wild fishery in the hands of  the governments and the industries and the results have  been disastrous. Therefore .7  believe public debate of this new  industry can only be a beneficial  exercise.  I appreciate Richard taking  time out to express his interest,'  but I feel his commie bashing  crusade is a little misguided. We  have far more to fear from the  fascist element in this province.  Mac Richardson  Sechelts grateful  Editor:  In all our struggles over the  last three years, we have appreciated all the news put out by  the Coast News on our behalf.  Thank you for letting the  people on the Sunshine Coast  know what is going on in our  struggle towards self government.

Back in September I wrote a  short editorial criticising the  then director for Area C, Join  McRae for not having passed  on to the regional board his  knowledge that Scantech Resources wanted to put a fish-  farm in Davis Bay early in the  year. . '���. j��.v''.\v/  Clark Hamilton had appeared before the board on  April 11 to plead Scantech's  case for display pens to be  Want It Done Right?  mi wayne ross  Excavating  Septic Fields  Water Lines  Landscaping  Ditching  Wells  22 Years Of Experience Working For You  10% Discount  to SENIORS  . % 885-5617  I .    ^FOR ALL YOUR BACKHOE NEEDS"  FREE  ESTIMATES  moored some 100 feet offshore, without fish. I quote  from the Coast News, April 15,  "It will not be touching the  land, and it is only to display  and to test," said Hamilton,  who went on to/say that it  would be an ideal place for  students in the aquaculture program to practise changing nets  without endangering fish-stock.  The nets would definitely not  contain U-Catch-'em fish.  But a letter has now come into my possession from Bernt  Rindt, a Scantech principle; on  makeshift Scantech letterhead  and dated February 6, 1985. It  is addressed to Oddivin (sic) ,  Vedo" Sando.it. says; in   part j  .'Scahtecri Resources has at this'  time submitted an application...  for a foreshore lease located at  Davis Bay for a working fish  farm to be on display.  The letter adds that *we are  hoping to be able to train a few  people to take care of and  supervise this display farm.'  It's obvious from this letter  that Scantech's intention was to  install a fish farm at Davis Bay,  fish and all, and one can only  wonder why neither Vedo nor  anyone connected with the company chose to inform the regional board that this was indeed  the case.  If they did, why did it not  arise at a public meeting where  the business was under discussion?  It seems to me that this is certainly a case for an 'I told you  so' - my editorial hit the nail on  the head and Mr. McRae's consternation was not all that it appeared to be.  Trivial perhaps, but interesting in light of consequent  events and it is, after all,  another piece in the puzzle.  A sunny day at Porpoise Bay lights up a view that is hard to beat anywhere in the world. Seen from the  Tyee Air dock, the government wharf with its picturesque boats is dwarfed between sea, sky and the  mountains. ���Duuine Evans photo  Hal ley's Comet viewing  is well attended  More than 60 people atteiided  a comet Halley viewing session  held January 11 at Bonniebrook  Beach Park. Several amateur  astronomers arrived at dusk, set  up their telescopes and made  them available to the public for  viewing Halley's comet.  The comet appeared low in  the southwest sky, approximately 10 degrees above the  bright planet Jupiter. While not  easily seen with the naked eye  the comet looked quite impressive through the telescopes,  appearing as a bright fuzzy  snowball with a large faint dust  tail.  No one seemed disappointed  with the view and most people  had several looks through the  various telescopes that were present.  One lady was heard to say,  "This is fantastic. People say  there is nothing to do on the  coast. You can't do something  like this in the city because there  are too many lights."  Early arrivals were treated to  a view of the planet Jupiter and  its four visible moons.  Other objects seen during the  session were the Orion Nebula  and the Andromeda Galaxy.  Finally with the comet too  low on the horizon to view  anymore, .the crowd dispersed  and the coast's first comet  Halley viewing session came to  an end.  The organizers of the event,  Neil Sandy and Alban Martin,  commented that they plan to  have more public viewing sessions at a later date. .

Jardine,   Acting  Principal of Capilano College,  -with Irene Lugsdin, Community  Development   officer;   Barry  Wilbee   of   SCEDS;   Will  Buhner; April Struthers, and-  Barry Custance, and Ray Giza  of the Sechelt B.C. Forest Service office, have designed the  conference   to   address   local  questions within the larger context of forestry in the province.  ; The presenters at the conference, "Forestry as an Instrument  of Economic  Development'', are a mix of foresters,  mill operators, tree planters and  others from the Sunshine Coast;  and   government   representatives, a private consultant and  equipment suppliers. This selection of speakers give a variety  and   balance   to   viewpoints  represented.  The intention of the conference is to take a detailed look  at the forestry sector as it affects  the Coast; to gain a perspective  on present business and employment in the forests, and to  generate ideas s and plans for  future developments in the  resource and its management.  Topics include the recent  Federal/Provincial forestry  agreement and its implications  locally; a look at what is currently! ;happenirig^in_local  forests, or with wood', milling  and manufacturing; all in morning sessions. The afternoon introduces the Vancouver Island  Mayor's. Plan; surveys what has  been done elsewhere; and what  can be done in the future.  The conference, to be held at  the Sechelt Indian Band Hall, is  open to anyone interested in the  forest industry. The date is  January 23, 9 to 4:30 p.m. For  more information or to register  for this free conference, please  call Capilano College, 885-9310  between 10 and 7 p.m.  by Joan Cowderoy  Volunteers respond  residents who have no family on  the Coast, and help is required  in the Gift Shop once a week for  an hour in the morning.

Those whb have  not yet called, but would still  like to take on an interesting activity for 1986, should consider  the following possibilities'.  Shorncliffe, the Intermediate  Care Home in Sechelt, requires  assistance right now with some  aspects of the activity program  organized for residents. Volunteers are needed to wash and set  hair at least every other week,  one to one help is required in  the cooking program, men are  heeded to visit some of the male  Economic directions for Gibsons  Gibsons planner Rob Buchan  dominated last Wednesday's  planning meeting by laying out  several new directions for  economic development in the  town.  A proposed Gibsons-based  fish feed manufacturing plant  and a small business "incubator" were discussed and  Buchan proposed revising the  town's data base study to better  assist interested investors and to  lower development cost charges  to encourage more new construction.  David Quinn, of Trend Feed  Limited, told council that his  company's manufacturing  plant, which has been in the  works since the fall, should be  starting production by the middle of February.  The plant will be located in  the industrial park on the Suncoast Truss site and will initially  employ seven people.  "Most feed used- by fish  farms in the province is produced in the States," said Quinn.  "We want to eliminate that supply and enhance research in  B.C., that's our objective. We  have the finances, equipment  and resources we need."  Answering questions from  aldermen, Quinn said the plant  would be handling an already  processed fish product and  there would be no waste or  odour generated and "no more  noise than a diesel truck in your  backyard."  Council responded warmly  and favourably to the proposal  of the 100 per cent Canadian  owned company.  The town planner also told  council that a significant step  toward economic development  in the area has been taken by  two local, .businessmen, Terry  Neill and John Smith, with their  acquisition of the former Twin  Creeks Building Supply property at Highway 101 and Pratt  Road.  Their intention, said Buchan,  is to convert the existing  building into an "incubator"  for the promotion of small  businesses, combining available  space with advice and assistance  on business management and  accounting.  The idea came from former  mayor Larry Labonte after he  had attended a Union of B.C.  Municipalities workshop in  Vancouver. The community  development officer, Irene  Lugsdin, helped Neill and Smith  to work out the details.  "The addition of this type of  facility to our area," Buchan  reported, "should be of great  interest to those technical people in the community at large  (the community development  officer, clerks and planners)  who come into frequent contact  with aspiring business people. I  have already been able to provide Mr. Neill with some local  leads."  An astute marketing tool,  Buchan continued, would be  revising last year's data base  study with economic development in mind, making the study  an effective and relatively inexpensive prornotion for Gibsons.  Some of the additions which  he said might interest prospective investors included an outline of the. town's participation  (still uncommitted by council) in  the Partners in Enterprise Program, detailing tax relief rates;  inventories of available industrial land and of local raw  materials and resources;. water  quality test results with reference to wine-making and brewing potential; and a catalogue of  downtown improvements and  harbour marine facilities as  highlights for tourism potential.  He added that the study,  which is available in town for  $10, would ideally be low cost  to everyone and free to useful  sources, such as local banks and  realtors, federal and provincial  agencies involved in economic  development, local libraries and  schools.  In summary Buchan said,  "While we: have made much  headway in recent times, par-  SD No. 46 again  Work on the budget for  1986-87 is beginning in School  "District 46 and recent announcements from the ministry indicate that the board will find  .itself in much the same position  as in the days before restraint.  A news release received by  Secretary-treasurer Roy Mills  early this month says that the  Minister of Education will be  introducing legislation in the  spring session which will 'eliminate his authority to set a ceiling on the school board budgets  and also eliminate the requirement for school boards to hold  a referendum to raise funds in  excess of the fiscal framework.'  What this means is that the  board will set its own total  budget, and the ministry will  state how much of the budget  they will share in and how much  of it will be unshareable.  Because of time constraints,  Mills states that the board is not  able to wait until the spring to  find out whether this legislation  does indeed pass into law but  will have to start work now to  investigate the various options  open to it.  Pay increases for both teachers and staff will probably be  issues, Mills indicates, and the  problems inherent in having a  large segment of the population  on fixed incomes or working  less than full time will have an  impact on decisions, the board  will have to make.  On the bright side, Mills  points out that this district has a  high assessed value per pupil so  that any locally made decisions  will not raise the mill rate to as  large an extent as in the rest of  the province. He also sees the  possibility of a move towards  more school-based decisions in  the not too distant future.  A letter received by the board  at last Tuesday's school board  meeting from Bill Forst, president of the Sunshine Coast  Teachers' Association (SCTA),  says that the SCTA intends to  push for a modification of the  collective agreement presently in  effect between the board and  the association and proposes an  initial meeting at the end of  January, thereby getting the  process underway at an early  date.  ticularly in the last year, to  upgrade the town both physically and legislatively, we have yet  to come to grips directly with  pur most difficult problem: the  economic viability of the Town  of Gibsons. A new data base  study will be a valuable tool in  such an effort,."  Another proposal, put forward for discussion, was lowering development cost charges to  encourage more new construction. The town's current charge  for a new development is $1100  and is the highest rate on the  Sunshine Coast. While Gibsons,  unlike other communities in the  district, offers sewer, and the  present charge, according to  Buchan, is based on engineering  reports and "is sound", it was  established when lots were costing twice their current value.  So as an incentive for new  residential development, he suggested the town lower its rate to  about $430.  Clerk-treasurer Lorraine  Goddard was skeptical of the  proposal, saying that a change  in the by-law would have to be  passed through Victoria, and  that even if it was, a later attempt to bring it back to the  current rate .might mean  another costly engineering  study.  V She also said the reason for  so few new developments - last  year there were only about five  such charges levied by the town  - is that there are already too  many developed properties on  the market.  Alderman Norm Peterson,  who is a realtor, said council  would have nothing to lose by  lowering its rate on a trial ohe  year basis and. that the year of  Expo would be a good one.    t  Council refered the, proposal  to a later meeting for further  and deeper discussion. :  When you're looking for a way^  to ease the tax bite and retire in  comfort - consider the    .
