 -'-^tw'^'^J*  Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, BC  V8V 1X4  86.6-  One year tease automatic  Gibsons Winter Club hosted their annual Mixed Open Bonspeil last weekend, in which thirty-two rinks  competed, including fourteen front out of town. At press time, Larry Penonzek's local team was curling  against Dauvaras' Richmond team from the A Division championship. In the B and C Division finals,  local teams skippered by Ken Johnson and Ray Giza were competing against two Squamish teams skippered by Schulte and SchutZ. ���Brad Benson photo  Safety and health also concerns  The Ministry of Lands, Parks  and Housing (LPH) has chatrig-  ed its policy relating to the gran-.  ting of licences to prospective  fish farmers, according to LPH  Regional Director Joe Loyer in  conversation with the Coast  News last Friday.  Loyer said that the policy had  been in place for approximately  six weeks, although he was unable to: give a precise date.    .  .He said that anyone vyishing  to establish a fish farm would  be able to apply to LPH arid  receive an automatic one year's  lease on the foreshore: required.  During this time a feasibility  study would be made after  which a permanent licence of  .occupation would have .to:��� be  applied for arid a development  plan submitted.  No deyeloprhent would have  to be undertaken on the site  during the one year 'period,  . althoughit could be, accbrding  to Loyer; the only ..input which  the local regional district would  have would'^tQ-a4y^ the pro-  spective lessee if the upland zoning was compatible with mari-  culture.  There would be no process  for local input until the permanent lease application was received, he said.  imits ferry traffic  i ��<��%���<��������*  Manning levels on the  Horseshoe Bay/Langdale run  and on the Earls Gove/Saltery  Bay run continue to ncause concern for B.C. Ferry workers  employed on those routes Their  concerns are primarily about  the health and safety standards  oh their ships but there is also at  least one acknowledged instance  where the service provided the  public suffered because of inadequate crewing.  In a letter dated September 4,  1985, General Manager George  Baldwin of the B.C. Ferry Corporation achnowledged to J.B.  Murphy, Vice-President, Can-  for Pulp, that more than 20  vehicles had been left behind at  Langdale Terminal while there  was plenty of deck space to accommodate them. Baldwin  wrote:  "The observation by the crew  members that there was plenty  of room on that particular sailing for vehicles is correct. For  the 20-odd vehicles left behind  could well have been accommodated had it not been a situation where the vessel was fully loaded up to her passenger  licence.  "For your information, the  vessel is licensed by the Department of Transport to carry a  certain passenger volume which  cannot be exceeded and on that  particular day the total number  of passengers reached the limit  of the passenger licence at approximately 10 minutes prior to  sailing time and therefore no  further traffic could be  loaded."  What Baldwin did not make  clear in his letter to Murphy is  that the passenger licence limits  the number of passengers according to the size of the crew on  board the vessel during each  sailing.  Lobbying by the B.C. Ferry  Corporation of the' Canadian  Coast Guard, which body issues  the licences in question, has  brought about a multiple licensing situation whereby the number of crew members is  determined by Corporation  estimates of the passengers who  will be on board. When the  Corporation guesses wrong,  members of the public pay the  price either by being left behind,  as in the case of Mr. Murphy,  or in sailing on board vessels inadequately crewed to Canadian  safety standards.  The ferry workers have documented at least three sailings in  1985 which took place with the  ferry running over the Coast  Guard requirements for crew-  passenger ratio.  Union representations to  management on the crewing  , question.have been successful in  improving" the'''situation on-  Routes 1 and 2 to Vancouver  Island but no relief of the situation has been achieved on the  vessels serving both portions of  the Sunshine Coast.  "At the present levels of  manning we don't man a third  of the life raft equipment on  board," one ferry worker told  the Coast News.  Health concerns involve the  inadequate manning of the pan-  try on the Horseshoe  Bay/Langdale run.  "Last summer we just  couldn't keep the kitchen as  Finances allotted  clean as we wanted to. The  ramp  loading  and  unloading-  jrneans ��� that there^ are always  -passengere"d1iJ*b8^rjd^ r*v,antmgf'  service," the Coast News was  told.  It was alleged, also, that the  only way the ferries could leave  safely on time and ready to  serve passengers . was if ferry  workers got'to work a half hour  before start-up to prepare the  ship for departure. This expectation of a half-hour unpaid  work is built into the schedule,  according to our informants.  Of particular; concern is the  Earls Cove/Saltery Bay run  where the back up for cafeteria  is   the   cleaner.   The   regular  cafeteria attendant handles  money and food in contravention of Canada Health rules'.  ��� u/lh"lTog'therjcleaner has also  to double as' fog' lookout,  though riot a trained seaman. In  fact, at one meeting it was suggested that the driver of the  leading semi-trailer could serve  as fog lookout," the Coast  News was told.  According to our informants  the Ferry Corporation is pressing the Coast Guard to grant  them a 'smooth water licence'  for the duration of Expo, initially at least, which would  enable them to effect further  reductions in crew sizes.  Tourism tle-iii with  Aqua West explained  In a decision reached by  several directors of the Sunshine  Coast Tourism Association  (SCTA) at a meeting early in  January, and reported to the  Gibsons and District Chamber  of Commerce, it was agreed  that the association manager,  Anne Langdon, will henceforth  be paid a $2000 per month  salary.  SCTA treasurer Art McGin-  nis told the Coast News that  Langdon was the principal creditor of the SCTA, since she has  not received any salary during  the time she has worked with  the association, although she  was slated to be paid $960 monthly or $12 per hour on a half  time basis.  However Langdon, who is  also an alderman for the Village  of Sechelt, will receive hef  salary, not from the SCTA but  from a $50,000 provincial grant  to Aqua West, a program designed to bring Expo visitors to  the Sunshine Coast and at the  same time promote the aqua-  culture industry. It will culminate with the third annual  aquaculture conference, scheduled for September 3 to 7 and  will also feature such attractions  as U-Catch-'Em pens in Gibsons and Sechelt.  The $50,000 grant which was  received in October is under a  trust agreement and must be used strictly on Aqua West business, according to McGinnis. It  will principally be used to pay  salaries, operating and travelling expenses; for example Odd-  vin Vedo, who is employed by  Aqua West, is in Norway at the  present time, McGinnis said.  McGinnis said that most of  Langdon's time will go towards  Aqua West which is sponsoring  a booth at the Boat Show, to be  operated by tourism association  personnel. Aqua West will also  have a booth at the World  Business Showcase at the Canadian Building which will also be  staffed by the tourism association. This will give the tourism  association a chance to promote  the Sunshine Coast while Aqua  West encourages interest in the  aquaculture industry,  "Anne will be working 35  hours a week for Aqua West (at  $12 an hour) plus volunteering.  30 hours a week to the tourism  association," McGinnis told the  Coast News. "That's pretty  community minded " This is in  addition to Langdon's alder-  manic duties.  There is one employee in the  tourism association office, paid  for under a Canada Works  grant, McGinnis explained, adding that any other income the  tourism association has from  memberships, for example, has  to be held in trust to cover  operating expenses, and not to  pay outstanding local bills,  which, after deducting what is  owed to Langdon and McGinnis, amount to approximately  $3000.  "We can't pay debts with  that income," McGinnis said,  "but we are going to get provincial help to cover our lottery  losses, along with all the other  communities in the province  who were caught in the lottery  crunch."  This help amounts to one  dollar for every two municipal  dollars the association receives.  "We need top professionals  ���to work for us (Aqua West),"  McGinnis added. "We have a  lot of volunteers, and several  professional people working  #iow, including one financial  person in Vancouver."  Aqua West must have corporate sponsorship in order to  qualify for an additional  $100,000 provincial grant and  plans must be completed by  March 31.  "We expect to have a sponsor  in place in the next two weeks,"  McGinnis told the Coast News.  "We had to do real things to  create a feasibility study. We  had to do research and development to create concepts and in-  frastructural feasibility to show  our sponsor."  Other input-would be from  the provincial Ministry of  Agriculture, under whose  jurisdiction aquaculture now  /lies and the federal Department  of Fisheries and Oceans which is  "���'������: the water resource agency.  .-.;.���.. Loyer suggested that the  Coast News write to him to obtain a copy of the new policy  which has not yet been sent to  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD);  The chairman of the SCRD,  Jim Gurney, had heard vague  mention of the ney/ policy at a  January 17 meeting. between  Loyer, Wood Bay residents,  SCRD directors and planners  but no details of the policy had  been outlined by Loyer, Gurney  said..;.."  "This makes the case for proper zoning of the upland all the  stronger," he told the Coast  News . "The idea of giving a  trial period for a site is a good  one but there has to be public  input and due process. This  way, the foreshore could be tied  up totally anywhere that the  upland zoning permits mari-  culture."  SCRD Planner Jim Johnstone said that his department  had not received any copy of  such.a policy change, and that  he, like Gurney, had heard only  a passing reference to it at the  January 17 meeting.  * He agreed with Gurney that  such a policy makes the case for  comprehensive upland zoning  that much stronger and indicated that he would be asking  LPH for a copy of their policy.  " Tn the meantime the needfor  public support in zoning by-law-  amendments is crucial, Gurney  said.  "I hope the people of the  Sunshine Coast can be made  more aware of this," he stated.  "Everyone knows what hap-  penned to the residents at Wood  Bay, but without strong zoning  the same thing could happen to  anyone who lives in a rural area.  "We need public support ;to  get our amendments through,  so that we can have proper zoning in place before the event and  not have to institute by-law  amendments to react to a crisis  situation," Gurney added.    .  Area A .Director Gordon  Wilson, in whose area many  aquaculture sites are located  was unhappy with this development in policy.  "It is extremely regrettable,"  he told the Coast News. "I have  met with many major players  already here and many large  corporate players who are planning to invest here in the future,  and they all say that the fact  that there is a lack of regulations concerns them greatly. V  "When industry asks for regulations it shows there is a real  need for them," he continued;  "Anyone who is prepared to invest millions of dollars in an  area without regulations but  where there may be some in the  future will be far more worried  than if there are clear regulations in place already. Then  they know the rules won't  change in mid-stream."  Loyer. also told the. Coast  News that newspaper advertisements, to which he had referred at the January 17 meeting,  and which he said Scantech had  placed prior to their move into  Wood Bay last July, were actually not necessary and indicated that, in fact, there were  none. /  At the January 17 meeting,  according to Wilson and Wood  B$y resident Mac Richardson  who was present; '4Joy&?-��Uj$;  that he had them on file but was  unable to bring them out of trie  office. He was unable also ib  remember the dates or the  names of the newspapers in  which they appeared but offered to check and let Wilson  know. To date this has not been  done.  Celebration close  for Sechelts  There was jubilation in the Sechelt Indian Band (SIB) offices last Friday afternoon when the news came mat Indian  Affairs Minister David Crombie will be tabling the Sechelt  self-government legislation in the House of Commons, Ottawa, next Wednesday, February 5. -  The bill will receive first reading on Wednesday and second  reading on Thursday the sixth at which time Crombie will  speak to the bill, viewed as a major piece of legislation.  The legislative package in no way abrogates any aboriginal  rights which are in the Canadian Constitution, the SIB  financial advisor, Gordon Anderson, told the Coast News  Chief Stan Dixon was almost too elated to speak, but he  did say that, as soon as the Bill receives second reading, the  groundwork will be laid for a referendum, required by law to  be held thirty days after the reading.  Dixon would have preferred a shorter waiting period, but  he said the SIB will be using the time to continue their work  towards the transitional stage which will take place after the  referendum which he is certain will be favourable.  "We are working on it all the time," he told the Coast  News. "We are having workshops several times a week with  our band members so that they will know what it is all  about."  Provincial mirror legislation will appear before the Cabinet  in Victoria on the same day, Dixon said.  "There'll be a great celebration pretty soon," Dixon promised. "The biggest potlatch we've ever had."  Attendance urged  Gibsons and District Chamber of Commerce urges all  who are interested in Gibsons' Centennial Year to attend  the council meeting on Tuesday, February 4, to hear council's discussion of the issue.  Bad air in Chatelech  Air quality on the mezzanine  floor at Chatelech Secondary  school is unsatisfactory according to reports from trustees at  last Tuesday's school board  meeting.  Several trustees had visited  the classrooms in question and  had found the air to be stale and  smelly.  Doris Fuller said that doctors  had indicated to her that students were suffering from more  than average the number of  ailments due, they suspected, to  the air in the classrooms.  The problems with the air  arose because the mezzanine  floor is tied in to the system in  use throughout the rest of the  school where it needs, according  to an air systems consultant, its  own separate system. As it is,  the air from the gymnasium  below circulates through the  classrooms, carrying with it the  usual gymnasium smells.  Mary Belle Bulmer wanted to  know why it had taken so long  to rectify the problem, when it  had been known for some time.  "It is imperative that we not  put children into an unhealthy  environment," she urged, and  her sentiments were echoed by  other trustees. ;  Secretary-treasurer Roy Mills  said that the problem had been  made worse by one of the tea-'  chers who had turned off the"  fan because of the noise it was'  making.  v>  V. Coast News, February 3,1986  A question  of caring  By the end of the week interviewers were asking the forbidden questions about last week's explosion of the  Challenger shuttle craft.  "Was this a public relations exercise that blew up in  NASA's face?" asked one interviewer of a NASA official,  referring to the presence of the civilian school teacher  aboard the fated craft.  "Is the main purpose of the Challenger program a  military purpose?" asked another "And will.it now continue?"  Before that an almost turgid wave of sentiment swept  over the airwaves from every point of the compass. It is as  though pioneer flyers didn't die when the aircraft was in its  fledgling phase.  Commentator after commentator vied with each other  to look\suitably solemn and tragic. The comparison with  the assassination of John F. Kennedy was made again and  again.. :,  We hold with the sanctity of human life and grieved at  the untimely death of seven brave people as much as  anyone.  A nagging and persistent thought kept recurring, however. Forty thousand children die in this world every day, a  slow ami agonizing wasting away of small bodies and  nasceriinuman spirits. Why is there so much grieving for  the few and so little for the many? Would this world not  be a more truly caring place if some of those billions of  dollars.we fling into the skies went to feed starving  children?  Are ||e a caring people or a people who want to be seen  to be caring? Are we unable to visualize the tragedy of untimely death unless it comes to us on our television  screens?  These are questions to be pondered.  Conflict  As regional alternate Dick Derby started in January getting $25 for every meeting he attended. This comes after  years of not getting paid and untold hundreds of hours of  community service.  The main conflict around here is between common  decencyjand mindless malice.  5 YEARS AGO  The nascent meeting of the newly formed  Aquaculture Association of B.C. was held on January 31  at St. Vincent's Bay.  Mayor Goddard tells the Coast News that her and her  council's position on the land freeze imposed by the  zoning of the Agricultural Land Reserve is that it will  impede^grdwth and development within the Village of  Gibsons'* boundaries. ^ ''/':-     V *  Confirmation has been given that 3.7 acres have been  dedicated to become the Daniel Point Waterfront Park  (after Daniel Pender) by the developers of the 160 acre  sub-divjejfan in Lees Bay.  10 YEARS AGO  .   Gibsons and Sechelt councils oppose rate increases  from thejB.C. Ferry Company and the elimination of the  commuter passes.  If all the hurdles can be cleared, Gibsons Kinsmen  Club may start construction on a $600,000 swimming  pool project this summer.  ^ 20 YEARS AGO  Tonylprgrave, MLA for Mackenzie, envisions a new  locatiorFfor Highway 101 that avoids schools and  communities, with feeder routes into the new highway.  The   Sunshine   Coast   RDA   groups   area   Water  Committee will send representatives to Victoria for the  purpose of establishing a method of procedure to  further the area effort to organize a Water Board.  30 YEARS AGO  This letter was received by the Coast News thirty  years ago.  "Editor:  We, the teenagers of the Coast, are asking for help.  We are asking the people to help us put over our ideas.  To put it short, there is nothing for us to do.  ...We are only asking for things to do. If we had a  recreation centre or perhaps a roller rink or something  of this sort we would be fully satisfied. Something like  this would provide us with something to do and make  good clean fun.  We are the coming generation, we want to work  togetheiffo make our communities fun to live in.  We are asking the adults for help as we cannot do  these things alone."  40 YEARS AGO  Wednesday morning, off the Entrance Island  lighthouse, distress signals brought quick action and  rescue to Miss Ethel Clarkson and Mrs. Joyce Glennie,  both of Gibsons, who were on their way to Nanaimo in  their small craft..  High winds and seas threatened to capsize the boat.  The women were in serious trouble and at the mercy of  the storm when rescuers arrived.  A movement to incorporate three communities,  Grantham's, Soames Point and Hopkins Landing as an  incorporated Village will be discussed at a meeting in  Grantham's Hall tonight.  When ultra-marathoner Al  Howie of Victoria won the Fifth  Annual Sri Chinmoy 24-hour  Endurance Run in Ottawa Jn  May last year it perhaps rated as  no great surprise. Howie has  won the event every year since  its inception.  The wiry and flambuoyant  Scot, noted for his junk food  habits and penchant for drinking beer while running was a  Jittle disappointed in his showing". In the 24-hour endurance  run he covered only 138 miles  arid 1700 yards. His best  distance is over 150 miles in that  time span and the world record,  which he covets, is in excess of  170 miles.  Less than two months after  the event, however, Howie was  diagnosed by Dr. Charles Ball  of Ottawa as having a malignant brain tumour and ordered  into Ottawa General Hospital as  soon as possible for further tests  and the runner was involved in a  race of another kind - a race for  life.  Al Howie's most astonishing  saga began on March 1, 1985,  when he set out from his home  in Victoria to run the length of  Vancouver Island thence by  ferry from Port Hardy to Prince  Rupert and from there, covering his customary 50 miles a day  across Canada to Newfoundland via the Yellowhead Pass.  Such feats seem routine to Al  Howie. He has in the past  thought nothing of running 50  miles a day from Winnipeg to  Toronto, for example, to compete in a marathon or ultra-  marathon upon arrival.  Last year his cross-Canada  run was to be in support of the  peace movement and to publicize the need for famine relief  in Africa. Sponsorship promised by the Islands '86 organization on Vancouver Island  dried up when that group ran  into financial difficulties but the  intrepid Scot set off without  sponsor on his self-imposed  odyssey.  He   reached   Winnipeg   in  May, approximately the half  way point and exactly on schedule. His plans called for a bus  trip to Ottawa to defend his  hold on the Sri Chinmoy Endurance Run and then he lucked  out and got a free Via Rail ride  back to Winnipeg to pick up  where he had left off.  Howie had been accustomed  to being sick virtually every  morning for almost two years  _but  he  put it down  to  the  7amount of bpr.-he;Consunjed,;at  .least a dozen beer a day during  "His run across Canada and frequently more if there was a party He could get to during his  stop for the night.  It was leaving Algonquin  Park on the run between Hunt-  sville and Whitney, Ontario,  that he first noticed the lump  behind his right ear.  "Ironically," says Howie,  ' "the place where I stayed in  Huntsville belonged to a man  named McGregor. His first wife  had died of cancer and his second was just going in to have  all the tests. It looked like she  had it too."  During the week it took  Howie to cover the distance between Whitney and Ottawa the  lump behind his right ear grew  rapidly. Other symptoms began  to manifest themselves. He had  trouble sleeping for more than  an hour at a time, waking up  with vivid and unpleasant  dreams; there were spells of dizziness and seeing double; sometimes he heard the sound of  bells ringing where no bells  were. The mornings were the  worst; in addition to his customary vomiting be began to  experience severe headaches  every morning. He kept telling  himself it couldn't be what he  feared it was. .,,  He reached Ottawa on the  16th of July and rested from his  journey.  Typically, resting for Howie  meant competing in a run. On  July 20-21 he entered and won  another 24-hour endurance run  at Chenneville, Quebec. He experienced more difficulty than  he had ever known however and  covered 'only' 116 miles. Running second to Howie in this  event was an intense Vietnam  veteran called Ken Heather-  ington who was to be the source  of great comfort in the terrible  days ahead.  Back in Ottawa after the  Chenneville run the symptoms  persisted and grew worse.  "The sleeplessness was the  worst part. I'd wake up after an  :hour's; sleep in the-middle of  another nightmare," recalls  Howie, "only to discover that  reality was worse than the  nightmare."  Finally, on July 23, he went  to see Dr. Ball and had his worst  suspicions confirmed.        "-'~  "After the visit to Dr. Ball I  was in a terrible fog," says  Howie. "I didn't want to goih-  to hospital. I delivered a letter  from Premier Pawley of Manitoba to Ed Broadbent of the  NDP and then, for want of a  better idea, I decided to keep  running and set out for Montreal."  The malignancy was gaining  on hirn; however,- and1'by "the  time : he reached Montreal  Howie 'realized that his cross-  Canada run was over. Now he  was involved in another kind of  contest.

SUBSCRIPTION RATES  Canada: 1 year $30; 6 months $18; Foreign: 1 year $35  Diahne  Evans  Are fish farms and tourism compatible?  by Dianne Evans  Nothing illustrates better the  need for a co-ordinated approach to development on the  Sunshine Coast than the situation with Aqua West and the  Sunshine Coast Tourism Association.  Here we have an association  dedicated, in their own words,  to the promotion of tourism on  the Coast sharing the office  with, and doing the work for, a  project which promotes the  growth of the local aquaculture  industry.  That Aqua West will bring  several hundreds of people to  the Coast in September for the  third aquaculture conference,  although they are planning to  put them up on a cruise ship  rather than in local hotels, is admirable. That tourists will be  encouraged to spend some time  and money here to view the  local fish farms is commendable. <;'  But we find it difficult to  reconcile the wholesale approach to aquaculture with a  concerted effort towards the  development of a viable and  thriving tourist industry.  This is especially true in light  1  of the newest policy changes  from Lands, Parks and Housing mentioned elsewhere in  these pages which will allow  aquaculture developers the opportunity to tie up the foreshore  for twelve months, without the  benefit of public input or local  governmental comment before  application is made for a permanent lease.  Already we are hearing  stories from local fishermen  who are finding a preponderance of dog-fish around fish  farm locations, we are already  seeing dozens of applications  come before the regional board  for vast tracts of foreshore land;,  and we are also faced with the  problem of antibiotics in the  water, this from the occasional  necessary applications of these  drugs in the fish feed. !  We are also faced with a con;  certed attack upon the regional  board and its demands for mor$  input and better regulations,  governing aquaculture and the  use of the foreshore. This attack  comes primarily from those in-^i  volved in the tourism associa-!  tion and with Aqua West.    .-->!

The cy-  t   cle must be broken if we are to  ^;haye a healthy society..."  -' ".When I think of abuse, a  gjraphic picture formulates in  $::'my mind, depicting centuries  |,.land centuries of abuse.  I 7 1 ponder now upon the cus-  * ;toms of the ancient empires... .  f ^Babylon, Greece, Rome, Britain  ?f (around the time of the Druids  r. arid onwards in history), China,  �� etc. ���   .;  J- '. Are you aware of the fact  �� that girls were were consecrated  ! at birth to different gods and ������  goddesses, their chief aim in life  I jt<r become temple prostitutes?,  ?.     Are you aware of the fact  that as 'just due' of the conquering hordes young girls and  boys as well as young women  "and men were taken as a spoil  of war and were in fact, 'spoiled' as to their virtue...it was  .���. customary.  ��� I "���. The children of poorer classes  Jr at the time of the Druids were  �� especially subject to the whims  �� and fancies of those in stations  �� above theirs, and this practice  ����� carried on for centuries. And it  *' has not been that long ago, in  v terms of history, that China  titself gave up the practice of  ^selling girl-children into prostitution at birth.  And then we move forward  in history to a very lengthy time  period of abuse, which involved  not only children but whole  families...and this time period  concerned those centuries during which the Negro race was  exploited - (abused)   in   every  manner thinkable.  ;;;, Among the Negro slaves, in  times  past,   one  would  find  -slaves who had been beaten, as  -it-were, into submission. As we  also  know,  it  was  common  practice for plantation owners  . and other owners of slaves 'to  .;whet their sexual appetites' on  Jyoung girls and boys as well as  those of any particular age. In  .fact, age had no bearing...as  JjsiegroesjrCh^,-absolutely ��� jno  rights, whatsoever back; then.  Even after slavery had been  abolished,   it   took   several  < decades for the Caucasian race  to cease exploiting the black  , race...and in some parts of the  ��. United States, almost a century  r: had elapsed before blacks began  5 having   the   same   rights   as  *; others.  ��    From here we move on to the  �� twentieth   century   and   into  &���  p.  Hitler's regime. People do not  like to discuss the atrocities  committed at the different concentration camps...but we do  know that young attractive girls  were taken as prostitutes for the  officers; othershadla fancy for  young boys and no doubt the  Jewish race provided a selection  of young attractive boys.  We also know that numerous  other atrocities were performed  as for example, sterilization  techniques, as well as other procedures during which boys and  girls and adults were used as  guinea pigs.  Let us quote again your statement, "We know that those  who abuse children have been  abused themselves. The cycle  must be broken if we are to  have a healthy society..."  One must be very careful  when making blanket  statements as the above quotation so as to not turn repression  inwards and in so doing cause  violated people more mental  agony if they happen to interpret the statement as 'first they  have been violated; and now  they have automatically become  part of the cycle...now they are r.  in danger of contamiriating v  society.'  I wonder what would be happening in the United States right .  now if all the descendants of the  Negro slaves were constantly  being reminded of their exploited   ancestors   by   being  related to as potential slaves?  I wonder how many of us can  trace back our ancestry and to  our amazement, find that we  have relatives who owned a  plantation (or at least a couple  of slaves) who were abusing (exploiting) those slaves; or  perhaps, our ancestors belonged  to the nobility in England who  thought that it was their,due to  force themselves upon one of  their servants, as after all,  he/she was only a servant!

Editor:  I would like to suggest to  parents or other interested parties who are suggesting French  Immersion classes, why not just  organize French classes after the  regular school hours?  Yes, I do believe young people learn things-quickly at a  young age, but why not Chinese  Immersion classes or any other  language? In Vancouver for instance, I feel Chinese would be  more useful than French.  A lot of youngsters do not  like the idea of school or find it  difficult in their native language  (even with their parents' help)  so why make it harder for them  by exposing them to new  courses in a new language. *���;.������  Another thought, should the  immersion classes have to stop  after a year or so (children finding it too difficult or families  moving away) the children then  have lost a year or more of the  normal schooling.      v  I myself was born in Montreal and graduated from high  school. A lot of my friends were  French speaking and we were  taught French from grade three  on.  Since coming to B.C. I have  not found it necessary to use  French. I strongly feel that if  you want your youngster to  . learn another language they  should take extra lessons like  any other after school activity.  The people of Quebec might  be saying this should be a bilingual country but when you  visit in Quebec you don't see  English signs, so where is bil-  ingualism to begin? I've been  there.  H. Wright  Well being for well-to-do  Editor:  There seems to have been a  drastic shift in the priorities of  the "New Age" movement.  At one time we were encouraged to be loving, ecologically conscious, politically and  socially aware. Now, however,  if the "advertisement" by the  Secret Cove Well Being Centre  in the latest continuing education pamphlet is any indication,  "enlightenment" is destined to  be reserved for those capable of  dishing out fees of up to $585  for one program.  i . iWe'.trealise -that :the^ practi-  ��� doners of these healing arts are  genuinely devoted to improving  the-human condition. But the  inflated monetary value attached to their physical and spiritual  well-being is gauged by personal  economic prosperity. Thus, we  are once again enmeshed in the  seductive snares of materialism.  There can be no question of  the "holistic" benefits accruing  to such seminars; perhaps there  will be a "trickle down" effect  and the abundance of well-  being experienced at these exclusive gatherings will gradually  permeate the "lower classes". I  believe that this is a prevalent  economic philosophy as well.  The real insult consists in this  centre taking advantage of our  local continuing education  brochure to advertise their programs.

Coast News, Februarys, 1986  approach on  Crawford Killian, Province columnist, spoke to an interested audience at Chatelech on.Super Bowl Sunday, about the sad state of  education in B.C. ���John Gleeson photo  On education  A two-pronged approach to  the problem of child abuse  within School District 46 has  been pursued by the treatment  team according to a report from  team director Stephanie Crane  at last Tuesday's school board  meeting. ;  Meeting the needs of the victims and their families was one  concern and the other is the ongoing need to develop awareness among children and the  community at large on the problem of abuse.  The immediate needs of victims and their families were  met, said Crane, and Drew  .McKee, special counsellor, is-  still available for on-going  needs, as is other team member  Mary Belle Buhner from the  Mental Health office. Crane  said that no discernible needs of  any children within the district  were not being met at the present time.  Workshops were held last  August for professionals such  as educators, MHR personnel,  RCMP and Public Health personnel and these workshops  were most useful and positive,  Crane added.  The Child Abuse Research-  Education (CARE) program for  kindergarten to Grade 3 is being  implemented throughout the  district said Crane as is the  Tracy program, or Feeling Yes,  Feeling No, as it is known. This  program is for Grades 4 to 7.  The primary level of prevention will hopefully mean that  those children are never abused,  while the intermediate program  is for those who have been  abused, to identify them and to  help them.  There are many anxieties involved in dealing with abuse in a  community such as ours, Crane  explained.  ��� 'It is difficult in a small community when you're working  and living with friends you may  have to recognise as abusers,"  she said: "That's hard to deal  with. Teachers need to have  support to handle the anxieties  that may come from dealing  with disclosures."  The strong awareness and  prevention program is something which must continue,  Crane said, adding that a coordinated approach between  various agencies involved in the  treatment of abuse is very much  needed.  "As a team we worked well  and I feel good about what we  have accomplished," she told  the meeting. "Now we have the  vehicle to improve and to keep  going. We must keep the coordination going and we must  recognise the gaps in treatment  that exist.  "The earlier the abuse is iden  tified, the more positive it is in  terms of the children and their  parents' lives," she added.  McKee also spoke to the  meeting, indicating that  teachers will be undergoing  training within the next few  weeks in preparation for the implementation of the CARE program. He also commended the  school at Halfmoon Bay for  their very strong parent participation in the abuse work  shops and their support of^ph-  going programs. 7::'Z��t  Speaking as a member of the  treatment team, Bulmer said  that she too felt good about ���tne  work that had been done.'But  stressed the fact that itis fiot^yet  over for the victims and'thfeir  famijies. ��� " ;'' ��� ��^2  "There is an apparent need  for treatment personnel in .^ju-  community," she told^tge  board. -/".V.

Be sure your  vehicle  is   rated   in   the   right  classification for its use.  Socreds will win the next election and then start bashing  education all over again.  About 25 people turned out  at Chatelech Secondary on the  Sunday afternoon of the Super  Bowl to hear Killian speak and  to ask questions about education^ in the province.  "People have short .riemo-  ries," Killian said. "A little bit  happens, which outrages you,  then you get used to it very  quickly. The firing of the Vancouver and Cowichan School  Boards was a nine-day  wonder."  It was going back to the files  "to remferriber, he said, and.see-'  '�� ing together in detail the record  ���'k of cutbacks and indifference,  which "led to him documenting  the material in his book, School  Wars, published last fall.  Killian traces the problem to  a division which he says emerged about 10 years ago between  the majority, who were inclined ���  , toward a more democratic educational system, and the  schismatics who opposed them.  He describes the 'schismatics'  as a powerful minority who pretend to be an elite but in so doing have cut themselves off  from large and general segments  of the population. Along these  lines, they had "lost belief in ���  pouring more money into the  rathole of public education."  To them, says Killian, it was  a waste of money. Sending their  own children to private schools, "i  "Why should they pour more  money into an institution which  will produce their political  enemies?"  The   recession   fueled   the;  schimsatics with energy and occasion  to  attack  government;  spending and  social  services;  teachers   and   social   workers-  received   direct   and   frequent  discreditings.  , It was those least affected by)  the recessions who provided'this ;'<  incentivefor attack on B.C^i  Schools.    X:''1 .,'"' ^  "On the other hand, those  most affected - people at the  other end of the social scale *  -have been doing the least amount of complaining and still  seem to have some faith in the  system."  Killian told the Sechelt audience, "Now we are going  through a period of sinking expectations. Educators, instead  of working toward improving  the system, are now cowed and  intimidated and scared for their  jobs." While the public, might  easily  forget  the changes  in  education, people in the profession do not.  "There is a Chinese saying  that you kill the chicken to scare  the monkey. The firings of the  two school boards certainly  sobered up trustees in other  districts. And this could be a  long-term scar on the B.C.  political system."  During a question period  which followed, Bill Forst, who  is president of the Sunshine  Coast Teachers' Association,  told the group that the district  has lost about 10 to 15 teachers  in the last three years.  "The result has been the loss  of specialists - music, art and  cultural activities our Social  Credit friends might call frills."  Forst also talked about the  decision to transfer Bowen  Island from this district to West  Vancouver: "It was never made  clear, that the Bowen Island  community wanted it. It was  Heinrich's decision, probably  made while drinking his morning coffee. He has turned down  requests from several special interest groups for a referendum.  We find out that a number of  cabinet ministers have property  on Bowen, so it seems like..."  "Surely you can't mean conflict of interest?" Killian asked.

The minutes show thai  council is again favouring a  reduced, $100,000 Phase Two in  the downtown revitalization.  The development of a lower  town parking lot on municipally  owned land across from the  tourist booth, a walkway over  the northern breakwater and  numerous beach improvements  will probably be the items cut  from the next phase of the project;  After a report from the town  clerk suggesting that loan rates  might be prohibitive to taxpayers in the benefitting area,  council had seemed keen on a  reduction. But the original  $250,000 figure came up again  at a later meeting when Alderman Norm Peterson said he did  not think the larger sum would  make an impact in added taxes.  He asked the clerk to compile a  breakdown   of   projected   individual increases due to the  : loan. "'/"."���'  The figures were brought to  last week's finance meeting and  Peterson told the Coast News  that they indicated a larger tax  increase than he had supposed  and said that he now thought a  reduced Phase Two would be  wiser.  The figures were, not made  available by the town office  when the Coast News requested  them.  At the same meeting the committee voted that water user  rates be raised by 45 cents per  month for domestic unmetered  service, with a nine per cent increase for metered service, and  that the sewer parcel tax and  sewer user rates in the town be  each raised by eight per cent.  , And the Gibsons Swimming  Pool may be shut down for  weeks, months or altogether  because of its recurring deficit,  according to clerk-treasurer  Lorraine Goddard. Council has  asked her to prepare a summary  of savings under all of these options.  ����*!  *e*��c  50off Cushion  Floor  ROLL ENDS  for Kitchen or Bathroom  VANCOUVER PRICES from '7.95 to $15.95  on beautiful floor coverings for your home!!!-  Make'your selection from MORE THAN 20 Rolls of Carpet  GOOD LOOKS THAT WILL FIT YOUR BUDGET  DeVries Floor & Window Coverings  709, Hwy. 101, Gibsons    886-7112  StlKCMdt  Aojmm  m.  886-2000  P.O.

It is only $5  for an evening of dancing to the  music of Paul Hansen and there  will be spot dance and door  prizes.  SPRING  Have noticed quite a few  Redrooffs folks already out doing some gardening. So it is not  too early to ask that you set  aside some of your transplants  and cuttings and save them for  the Welcome Beach Annual  Plant Sale which is scheduled  -r for (the Saturday of May; 24.  COOPER'S GREEN  Those of-; you who kept  wondering why 'nothing was  happening' at Cooper's Green  last summer can take heart.  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) is at present  preparing a site plan for the  park and work has been done in  ' the building - it has now been  insulated and the interior walls  are being re-installed.  The work is being done  voluntarily with materials provided by the SCRD. But there is  still much to be done.  We need picnic tables for example and we also need some  willing volunteer hands to get  on with the job and not leave it  till summer is upon us. It will all  have to be done according to  plan so that it does' not become  a. hodge-podge of individual  ideas.  If any of you would like to  become involved in helping  would you please get in touch  with Peggy Connor who is in  charge of the project for the  SCRD.  Parking - or the lack of it - is  one big problem which has to be  dealt with. Some folks feel that  they should be allowed to park  on the Green, but what a price  to pay for a parking lot!  No, there are alternatives and  I am sure they will be duly  worked out. I have heard the  suggestion that the lagoon  across from the Green be filled  in for this purpose. I hope that  this one won't even be considered as it is the nesting area for  heron and ducks. With a little  clean-up job it could once again  become a spawning area for salmon as the lagoon is creek fed.  creek fed.  Hopefully there will soon be  lots of activity at the Green so  that we can all enjoy It. Work is  also needed on the launching  ramp and all you ardent  fishermen who enjoy using it  should call Peggy expressing  your willingness to help.  SYMPATHY  I'was saddened to hear of the  passing of Dr. Perry who will be  remembered with love by those  of us who had him treat our  animals throughout the years.

Now on February 9, the  Bethel Baptist Church will  celebrate the 30th anniversary  of joining the Baptist Union of  Western Canada.  The work was originally  begun in the early 1940's by Mr.  Elliott under the auspices of the  Baptist Laymen's Association.  The meetings were held in the  old Sechelt Schoolhouse. In  1946 the Legion Hall, now the  Senior Citizens Hall, was rented  for the meetings. In 1953 the  present location was purchased  with a small one-room building  on it.  In February 1956 the  church's application to join the  Baptist Union was accepted and  in 1959 a new church building  was i erected and the original  building was used for Sunday  -"School.  iito ,The' work continued arid in  soil978   a   major  addition   was  made to the auditorium. In 1980  a Christian Education wing was  added.-  In January: 1985 in order to  accommodate the numbers at  tending they had to begin two  Sunday morning services.  Their anniversary celebration  service will be held in the Sechelt  Indian Band Hall at 10:30 a.m.,  February 9. This will permit the  total church family to be together in one meeting.  Members of the Bethel Baptist Church have served the  community of the Sunshine  Coast honourably for all these  years in other organizations as  well as their church.

SUNSHINE COAST REGIONAL DISTRICT  Notice of Public Hearing  Pursuant to Sections 956 and 957 of the Municipal Act, a public hearing will  be held to consider the following by-law of the Sunshine Coast Regional  District:  "Sunshine Coast Regional District Zoning Amendment  By-law No. 264.9,  1985".  It is the intent of the By-law No. 264.9 to amend By-law 264 to provide for  clearer wording and a new map base.  The proposed amendments within the text are generally housekeeping in  nature and include the correction of uncertain wording, updated Act titles,  more consistent terminology and other similar changes.  The proposed map amendments include some rezoning of public park  lands, designation changes associated with the subdivision and acquisition of Cooper's Green and a number of minor cartographic refinements. It  is also proposed that the current Schedule A of By-law 264, intended  originally to be temporary base maps, be replaced with a new zoning map  base in order to provide better representation of the zoning designations.  The public hearing will be held at 7 p.m. on THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 20,  1986 at the Regional District Office, the Royal Terraces Building located at  the foot of Wharf Street, Sechelt,.B.C. All persons who deem their interest  in property to be affected by the proposed by-law shall be afforded an opportunity to be heard on matters contained therein.  The above is a synopsis of the by-law and is not deemed to be an interpretation of the by-law. The amending by-law may be inspected at the  Regional District Office, the Royal Terraces building located at the foot of  Wharf Street, Sechelt, B.C. during office hours, namely Monday to Wednesday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Thursday and Friday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.  Mr. I.

Alf's been a long  time resident of Egmont for  over 40 years.  Alf and his brother Bob survived the Halifax fire but lost  both of their girl friends; neither  brothers married.  They came West and at first  lived at St. Vincent's Bay, then  moved into Egmont. They  didn't want to he high ball ;  fishermen or be famous, just  live the quiet life with good  friends and neighbours which  they found in Egmont, maybe  because they were good neighbours. ,  Bob passed on a few years  ago.  We thought Alf had a  son reme  /���  V -  sister but it was a friend who  was a nun that he called sister.  He does have a nephew and  grand nephew.  Father Angelo officiated the ���  service at the Catholic church in  Sechelt and grave side service at  Seaview Cemetery.

Such is the pain of  Bernie Vallee, who grew up in  the Harbour, graduating from  Pender Harbour Secondary in  1960. Bernie was a born athlete,  who excelled in basketball.  In 1961, Ernie and some  ' friends were driving home from  bowling in Sechelt when their  l[ car went off the road at Secret  Cove. The friends escaped  unhurt; Bernie was left a  paraplegic.  He is now in Ladner Private  Hospital, 9321 Burns Road,  Delta, and is eager for some  news of his friends here in  Pender Harbour. Ken and Sue  McDonald met him almost by  accident at the hospital, and  ; brought home a message to  Caryl Cameron, who knew Ber-  ' nie well.  Caryl passed on the news to  me, and to the Pender Harbour  Church Women, who are sending Bernie a subscription to the  Coast News. If you knew Bernie, and could write to him with  news, or even pay a visit, his life  would be a little brighter.       ...^  THE COOKIE JAR  ' Last Sunday a fire destroyed  the cabin of Egmont correspondent Ann Cook, taking many of  her worldly goods up in smoke.  Ann is the first one to pitch in  when trouble strikes for others,  so Egmont residents have been  helping with a "Cookie Jar"  fund at the Egmont Post Office.  If you can help out, get in touch  with Ron Fearn at the school, or  the Post Office.

Pender School News  by Michelle Cochet and  John Griffith  We won't be seeing our head  maintenance man, Harry Mun-  ro, around the high school for  about six weeks. He was admitted to St. Mary's Hospital last  Friday. He has been released  now, but he'll have to take it  easy for a while. The students  and staff of PHSS all wish him  a rapid recovery  .

We are STILL waiting  for our truck load of wood, but  as soon as it is delivered we will  get right to work getting the  wood to you. On behalf of the  graduating class I would like to  apologize for the delay.  While waiting for their wood  to arrive, our grads have been  busy arranging and partaking in  additional fund raising activities. Last weekend, they did  quite well selling their baked  goods at the Swap Meet, held in  the Pender Harbour Community Hall. They are hoping to raise  even more money than this during their 12 hour dance-a-thon  which will be happening some  time in the middle of February.  Well, it appers that even playing on their home court does  not bother our junior girls'  basketball team. Last Thursday, at Chatelech, they won one  of the two games. The girls will  be travelling to Powell River on  Monday, February 3, to play a  few games against Oceanview  and Brooks. We wish them the  best of luck on this next adventure.  Our Student Council, in an  effort to break the monotony of  the late Winter blues, is in the  process of arranging some very  interesting activities for this  month. Due to its great popularity last year; a Lip Synch is  on the agenda for mid-  February, as well as a Valentine's dance.  Both of these occurrences will  be happening on the same day,  as a result of the limited amount  of activity, time, available. If  everything works out as plann-  edftFebruafyl4 should turn out  to be quite interesting . for  everyone. Only time will tell.  Congratulations to the happy  parents, and welcome to Pender  Harbour, Brandon and Starr!  GET WELL WISHES  A special "get better quick"  wish to Lowe's Resort's gal Friday Nan Larsen, who broke her  arm recently. Thanks from Nan  to Linda Curtiss for her help in  time of need.  Harry Munro is back home  after an 'early warning' from  his heart put him in St. Mary's.  He has nothing but praise for  our clinic staff and ambulance  crew, especially Linda Curtiss.  MEDIC ALERT  If you wear contact lenses or  have a pacemaker, have a drug  or food allergy, suffer from  diabetes, glaucoma, kidney  disease or take certain medications on a regular basis, you  should be wearing a bracelet or  tag to alert ambulance attendants or physicians.  Medic Alert is one particular  brand, although 'no-name'  varieties are readily available at  the pharmacies. These items can  save your life in an emergency  situation when you may not be  able to tell the doctor or medic  about these conditions.  DON'T FORGET  .

LIBRARY ASSOCIATION��&-*  At their annual general  meeting last Monday, the  members of the Gibsons Public  Library Association heard a  report of the continuing growth  of this community service to the  town and district.  The library is operated by  volunteers - almost 3000 hours  of service in 1985 - and in addition last year, for the first time  in 30 years, with the help of a  part-time paid clerk.  Besides the circulation of  adult and juvenile books, the library provides large print  books, talking book cassettes,  and books in other languages,  as well as a large number of  magazines.  The children's department  serves an ever increasing number of pre-schoolers on Wednesday moning's story time,  and in the growing demand for  juvenile non-fiction for school  reports.  The librarian, Pamela  Feichtner, says that the 20 hours  of paid clerical work per week  that was provided in last year's  grant from Gibsons Council  makes it possible to maintain  the rapidly growing library service which otherwise would be  too   much   to   ask   of   the  volunteers.  Circulation has increased by  14,000 in the past five years,  Pam reports, and the library  collection now has almost  13,000 volumes. Large print  books and talking book cassettes come to the library on loan  from other agencies, and so do  books in French, German, or  Italian. The library will forward  requests to the Open Shelf Library in Victoria.  By subscription and by donation there are 21 different  magazines available to borrowers. In this section the circulation in 1985 was 382.  Last summer the Challenge  '85 program provided employment-^ in July  ^'^^8^^ug^t.v':^Bec^e of her  cohsisferit volunteer work in the  library in the pasl:, Suzanne  Reimer was selected for the  summer job.  The library was commended  by a representative of the Provincial Library Services this past  year for its book selection and  services to Gibsons' town and  district.  Disappointment greeted the  announcement by the Regional  District that it would reduce its  grants to libraries. This cut  comes at a time when libraries  and reading centers on the Sunshine Coast are finding that the  public is using their services  more and more.  The storytellers in the  Wednesday story time are commended for their service. Gail  Reimer, the children's librarian,  thanks Nest Lewis, Peter Reid,  and Sandy McBride for making  story time so popular.  And to the library volunteers,  too many to mention by name,  and to the librarians, the board  says thanks.

Coast News, February 3,1986  MMM^^M&^^SMMM^BM  by Peter Trower  This second Courtenay performance turned out to be a bit  different from any we had done  before. Mike Dunn, at the time,  was going with a pretty lady  (also named Mikal) who lived in  the Comox area. Mikal, a  jewelry-maker, who also played  guitar and sang, had kindly offered to house us.  At the eleventh hour, disaster  struck. Ken Dalgleish phoned  up to say he was sick and  wouldn't be able to make it.  Mike and I would have to go it  alone. Mike had gone over to  Courtenay a couple of days  before and I wasn't able to alert  him. When he metirne in Comox, I told him the bad news.  "No problem," said Mike.  "Mikal can do the^ig with us."  So we became a 'two guys  and a gal' act for one night.  Mikal turned out to be a good  guitarist with a fine voice in the  Joni Mitchell range, Mike  played a little piano and we  more or less winged it. It was  probably the loosest gig Mike  and I ever did. A bottle of  whiskey Mike stuck on the  piano top, Fats Waller style,  had a good deal to do with that.  But the crowd was with us all  the wayjand, curiously enough,  the tape of this performance  idbesrtft sound bad at all.  Things went into dormancy  again for another short spell.  Then, r my friend and fellow  poet, Scott Lawrance, asked us  to appear at a benefit concert  for Gyvyala Kampala, a visiting  guru. There was no money in it  but the gig was to be held at the  Queen Elizabeth Playhouse in  Vancouver and the exposure  alone was worth the trip. Pied  Pear, consisting of Rick Scott  and Joe Mock:. minus Shari  Ulrich, were topping the bill. It  was a definite,''step up in the  world for our intrepid trio.  At the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, I suffered my worst attack  of paranoia since the Davis Bay  gig. Even the backstage area  with its enormously high ceiling  and raised banks of lights seemed intimidating. We were slated  to go on just before Pied Pear  and by the time our turn came, I  had virtually no fingernails left.  The on-stage set-up did little  to allay miy nervousness. The  stage was crescent shaped and I  was obliged to stand near the  outer rim with Mike and Ken  about 15 feet behind me.

The production will be  Michel Tremblay's beloved  Canadian play, Les Belles  Soeurs, which features a cast of  15 women ranging in age from a  19 year old just out of school to  an elderly woman in a wheelchair, who bites.  Because the cast is so large,  none of the roles are very big  and some are quite small, so the  Players are hoping that lots of  women will be encouraged to  turn out. It's fun and a sure way  to beat the late Winter blues.  The show will be presented  on April 11, 12,24,25 and 26 in  the Roberts Creek Hall, and on  April 19 at Presentation House  in North Vancouver.  We are also looking for technical crew members: lighting,  props, sound and costumes, as  well as stage crew.  Anyone who is interested but  unable to attend the auditions  should get in touch with Shelley  McGinnis at 885-7338, or Janet  Dolman at 885-2015.

ELPHIE'S  poet, a private man in the most  public of situations, stood  uneasily at the microphone, a  wad of poems held carefully in  his hand," John Faustman  wrote in a subsequent report.  Uneasy wasn't the word for it.  My knees were vibrating like  one of Mike's guitar strings.  Fortunately, the moderately  sized crowd was extremely  responsive and supportive. I  struggled through the first poem  and gradually managed to relax.  They weren't going to throw  tomatoes after all. The rest of  the gig went like a bird. The audience laughed in the right  places and were generous with  their applause. At one point,  Rick Scott's dog trotted onto  the stage. Ken simply ad-libbed  him into the lyrics of the song  he was singing.  When we had finished doing  our somewhat eccentric thing,  Rick Scott and Joe Mock took  over and capped things off with  one hell of a performance. In  retrospect, the evening was  judged a great success. Whether  they raised enough money to bring in the guru, I never did find  out but at least the folks went  home happy.  Spurred   on   by  our  good  reception at the Q.E. Playhouse, Mike, Ken and I decided  to bring it all back home and try  out out act on the good people  of Gibsons. We rented the  Twilight Theatre and ran an ad  with the following picture: This  charrrring little tableau shows  Ken/myself and Mike in the apparent throes of terminal deep-  city squalor. It was actually  taken behind the old staircase at  the end of the Bal Block but it  seemed to arouse a good deal of  curiosity. In any event, it  managed to scare out a pretty  sizable crowd. We were able to  pay off the theatre rental and  put a few dollars in our pockets  to boot.

The need for a  survey to be conducted was  stressed.  Among the "cautions" is the  problem of evaluation of the  program, which, in districts  without French cO-ordinators, is  difficult to rnaihtain at a high  standard of quality. The lack of  classroom space may also be a  problem, but if the program is  "started small" such a concern  may be dealt with without too  much difficulty/  Funding is available from the  federal government, in the form  of one-time startup grants for  each grade and also from the  provincial government which  allows start-up grants of $2,000  per year per grade.

Three of  them will be local productions j  one of which will be When the  Wind Blows, a comedy/drama  by Raymond Briggs.   :     ' ;  This play finds the peaceful  lives of a middle-aged English  couple upset by nuclear war.  The production will first be seen  locally on the third and fourth  weekends in March.  The other local productions  planned will include at least one  and possibly two plays from  Alan Ayckbourn's trilogy,, Norman Conquests. The plays are  tightly interwoven in that each  one takes place at the same time  but in a different area of the  household. The trilogy includes  Table Manners^ Living  Together, and Round and  Round the Garden. Betty Keller  will be directing.  ,  In keeping with last year's  format, the fourth production  will be brought up from Vancouver. ..; ������"Xa? ,y'������'������  The Eileen Glassford Arts  Foundation is currently seeking  a capable; individual to volunteer to fiil< the role of -pro-  ducer for this year's Play  Parade.

Join Us For  SUNDAY BRUNCH  11 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.  rw<:  Your guide to  the finest in  area dining  DINING GUIDE  A listing of  restaurants  and pubs  One of the most popular spots for Sunday Brunch, and  it's easy to see why, is Andy's Restaurant in Gibsons.  Each Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Andy's offers a  smorgasbord - and what.a sight the table is!  A groaning board is the perfect way to describe it. The  day my companions and I took rare time off from our busy Sunday schedule, we were faced with the task of trying  everything, simply because it looked so tempting.  For, those who'd been out late the night before and fancied breakfast, there were scrambled eggs, home-made  hash browns, golden sausages, bacon and pancakes.  Those who were hungry for a tasty lunch could begin  with a choice of five different salads, complete with a  choice of fresh salad dressings.  An enormous roast beef, steaming and browned to perfection, was carved on the.spot with a choice of rare to  well-done slices, with gravy and horseradish on,the side.  A large ham was similarly sliced to order and beside it  lay a platter of salmon, with moist and flaky meat which I  found went perfectly with the horseradish sauce.  Hot and spicy lasagna offered pasta lovers an opportunity to sample Andy's special sauce but the highlight for  all of us were Tula's own dolmadis, or stuffed grape  leaves. This was one dish we simply had to go back to:  Platters of fresh grapes and ripe, juicy cantaloupe led us  to the dessert table. Here Tula had done herself proud;  Two different desserts - each one cut into small pieces  and nestling in their own wrappers - and both delicious,  were offered.  The first, a delicate custard square with whipped cream  atop, the second a moist, light spice cake, were scrumptious, and, feeling just a little wicked, we went back for  seconds.  Three different types of juice were available and there  was plenty of fresh coffee and tea if we wanted.  The service was friendly and efficient - Andy always  welcomes his customers like friends - and at $6.95 a person, it's a bargain that's hard to beat.

Coast News, Februarys, 1986  in  If--1  |i  'Delivering the rock" at last weekend's Mixed Open Bonspejl at  the Gibsons Winter Club. ���Brad Benson photo  Gibsons starts  with rugby win  Vancouver Rugby Union second half swung into action last  Saturday and our local lads provided a much needed win in  third division play against the  Vancouver Red Lions.  The win gave the Pigs a 4  point margin because of previous rained out games in the  first half.  The Red Lions were supposed to have played the Blues  twice in the fall season but due  to the poor autumn weather this  single game made up for both  meetings.  It was a somewhat dissatisfying win for Gibsons. Unity was  not apparent in a style of play  that was neither solid nor consistent in scrummers' loose play;  the backs showed little offensive  thrust.  Perhaps the long break since  early November has affected  Gibsons. The club's second half  preparation has been confined  to indoor work-outs and the  lack of playing time out-of-  doors has to be a factor.  Wee Pea Peers came in from  the harbour and scored Gibsons' only try mid-way through  the second half. The Red Lions  scored a converted try in the  first half but failed to score  after. Scrum half Dave Rainer  booted two field goals to clinch  the 10-6 victory.  The fourth division Blues  managed a tie against first place  Scribes at Elphinstone. The 4-4  opener proved once again that  the new club can respond to  division leaders and play a convincing calibre of rugby.  Scrum half Chris Hansen  scored from a loose opening in  which break forward Jay Page  supplied the needed possession.  Next week Tsawassen visits  . Elphie; the game starts at 11:30  a.m..  S.C. Golf and Country Club  Tourney leaders  J .-"the team of Barbara Mercer  and J.C. Ross are leading the  second half of the Winter Tournament at this date with 12  points and one game to go for a  potential 14.  The teams of Mary Horn/Al  White and Pat Scarr/Roy Scan-  are tied with 10 points and each  with two games to go for a potential 14.  The team of Freeman Reynolds/Doug Elson has nine points  with two games to go for a potential 13.  And coming up fast on the  outside lane is the team of Boris  Meda/Howie Larsen with . 8  points but with four games to  go for a potential 16 points.  The dark horse Gibsons/  Warner team is waiting on the  side lines for all the above teams  to lose the balance of their  games and rightly and fairly let  us slip into the playoffs!  The next crib night will be on  Wednesday, February 5 at 7:30  p.m. sharp.  The next Tuesday afternoon  bridge session at the clubhouse  is on Tuesday, February 11.  Work on the clubhouse expansion, as approved by the  Annual General Meeting, has  already begun. The site has been  cleared by a group of very efficient volunteers and leveling  and preparation for the foundations will go ahead this week.  If any member would like to  volunteer a few hours or days of  work please give Roy Taylor a  call and he will give you the time  and place to report.  W? want tp get as much construction done in the month of  February as is possible and then  the project will be left until the  fall for completion.  Oidtimers hockey  Three weekends from now  the Suncoast Breakers Old  Timers Hockey Club will be  hosting their third annual Suncoast Cup Hockey Tournament.  The weekend on March 1 and  2 will see the Breakers host a 12  team tournament of two six  team divisions.  The Pain and the Bruise Divisions will each have five clubs  from off the peninsula, with the  Breakers making up the other  two clubs from their organization.  As the Breakers have received  requests from five other teams1  to attend, there is a possibility  that the club may consider expanding to a 16 team format  next year.  Hockey enthusiasts will again  be able to watch decent hockey  action all Friday evening, all  day Saturday, and great playoff action on the Sunday till  about 3 p.m.  An added feature to the tournament this season will be a  Pancake Breakfast that will run  Saturday   and   Sunday  morn*  Duffy wiiis  third  Golden  Gloves  by Barry Krangle  Tony Duffy, 16, of Gibsons  not only won his third straight  Vancouver Golden Gloves title  Saturday, January 25 while  strutting his stuff before a nearly sold out crowd in Burnaby,  he was also chosen to represent  B.C. next month in the Alberta  Golden Gloves" in Edmonton  and has earned himself a berth  on the B.C. team which will  compete in Quebec next winter  in the Canada Winter Games.  The Canada Winter Games is  part of the Road to '88 Olympics Preparatory Program. Boxers who have gained national  recognition will compete in  hopes of capturing the eye of  C.A.B.A. officials who choose  teams to compete internationally prior to the Olympic trials,  Duffy scored a third round  knock-out Saturday evening  with a powerful combination to  the mid section of Campbell  River veteran Mike Wood, aged  18. Duffy played cat and  mouse, choosing his shots at  will before finally lowering the  boom on the former provincial  champion.  The draw was not in Mark  Jaeger's favour at this event. He  drew the rugged Matthew Hill  from Seattle in the quarterfinals. Hill defeated Jaeger two  weekends ago in Eugene, Oregon and went on to win a  squeaker over Guy Wood, the  i 165 lb. National Champion.  Jaeger and Wood will meet in  the Diamond Belt, February 22  to decide who will represent  B.C. in the Canadian Senior  Championships, March 15 in  Cornwall, Ontario.

All the Breakers and their  wives and girlfriends are delighted by this generous offer  from the Scouts, and we would  encourage everyone to support  the group and their fine efforts.  Local carvers Jimmy Yelton,  Frank Dixon,' and Jamie Jeffries have been.busy hand carving the awards for the tournament; individual team trophies  and smaller keeper trophies for  the winning teams are being  carved in traditional Coast  Salish designs.  This local touch has always  been a positive feature of the  tournament and players in the  past have always expressed  pleasure in receiving these "dif*  ferent" mementos of their stay  in Sechelt.  As is always the case when  close to 200 visitors arrive on  the coast, the whole area  benefits, and the Suncoast  Breakers would just like to  acknowledge in advance, all the  motels, restaurants, and other  merchants who offer "Tournament Specials" for our hockey  family guests.  Finally, the Breakers would  be remiss if we didn't mention  again one of our biggest tourna- .  ment boosters in Ernie Fossett  and his Elphinstone Recreation  Association.  Ernie and his organization  have consistently aided this project from its inception three  years ago, and it is community  spirit like this which will con  tinue to make the Suncoast Cup  such a popular Old Timers  hockey affair!! ���;  Next weekj results of the  Powell River Tournament, and  teams and draw for. the Suncoast Cup.   -Sunshine Coast���  ARENA SCHEDULE  FOR FURTHER INFO PLEASE CALL 885-2955,;  -MONDAY;  Figure Skating .-;'���' 4-6 p.m���,  Minor Hockey . 6:30-7:30 p.m.;  Adult Hockey 8-10 p.m.  ' TUESDAY  Minor Hockey  END OF SEASON  Minor Hockey will shut  down on March 25, 1986.

The meetings are mostly quite  serious but when the serious  part isn't happening I bet it's  more fun than male stripper  v night in Gibsons.  Last Monday we ladies are  ��� waiting outside the clinic for the  ;��� 7:30 meeting when Marilyn ar-  <  rives with a message from Ruth  * .the President that she is at St.  Mary's  waiting  for daughter  Cheryl to present her with a new  r grandchild.  i That's okay, Ruth won't  .show but doesn't mention she  :. has the clinic key to let us in.  Ann makes a phone call to  -Gordon, no key. Marilyn drives  to Linda's, no key; then to  Jeanne's.  v Finally at 8:15, a key arrives.  Vi discovers a door was open all  the time.  On with the meeting. Iris fills  ��� in for Ruth (for a year as it  r turns out); the president, Carol,  ; fills in for Rose who is away,  and Kay filled in where Carol  couldn't as Carol is just Rose's  sister and not a member (follow  that?).  Roll call is finished and a lone  male asks why his name wasn't  called. Seems his name was  missed because Margaret locked  :the keys in her car and Marge,  ^his wife, drove Margaret home  for the spare. Seems if your wife  isn't present you don't count.  On with the meeting, and  down to business. Cheryl has  been minding the store (Show  Case in the clinic) but with new  baby and all, Peg and Margaret  are going to fill in until the baby  is: older and Cheryl has spare  time.  j ,vAnn says, that maybe in 25  years, as young women just  don't have the time we older  women  have  for community  work, maybe cause none of us  have babies, most of us don't  have microwaves, washers,  dryers, stereos, TVs, VCRs or  husbands to stay home and  keep an eye on.  . On with the meeting; all kidding aside these women know  where it's at when the budget  part is discussed. They are from  the old school of learning how  to stretch the pin money, and  are shakers and movers where  their community is concerned.  The Bargain Barn is one project that may look like a nickle  and dime business, but with  volunteer workers, it adds up to  thousands each year. Plus the  little gift Show  Case at the  Clinic that doesn't get as much  publicity as it should.  If you have a bad back or  know someone who has and  would like to do something  about it, let them know as one  of the projects simmering on the  clinic stove is having a physiotherapist give a few sessions on  how to treat bad backs,  strengthening muscles, lifting  and sitting. (Never sit with your  legs crossed.)  Crafts people are always  needed. If you do any type of  craft and would like to  volunteer, contact them, they  do supply some of the material.  Stop at the clinic, meet Peg or  Margaret who will run the Show  Case till Cheryl's baby grows  up.  Another way to help is to  save your IGA sales slips for  them; just like you save stamps  for the Lioness Club and ladies  of the Eastern Star. -  - The meeting wound up with  elections. Iris Griffith is new  president; not because Cheryl  had a baby and Ruth wasn't  there but because she was going  to be president anyway. Vice-  President, Vi Tyner: Second  Vice-President, Peg Riley; Secretary, Marilyn Stone; Treasurer, Rose Mueller; Publicity,  Ann: if I'm not put out to  pasture after this.  Fish farms and tourism  Continued from page 2  length with directors from every  area. We have yet to hear the  directors make comment against the industry itself. It appears that there is, on the contrary, considerable support for  aquaculture among the directors, but much apprehension  about the headlong rush into tying up the foreshore, our most  valuable recreational resource.  With a co-ordinated approach to development, commercial, industrial and residential, such as proposed for our  forests at the recent Forestry  Conference, these conflicts  could be avoided.  The majority of the people  who live here on the Coast and  who have visited for years  would have a sense of security,  knowing that the precious  foreshore is protected from  land-grabbers and quick-buck  artists, while still available for  legitimate investors and  developers as well as those who  use it for relaxation and recreation.  Co-ordination and co-operation - that's what is needed and  yet, too often, those few whose  interests lie in the tourism  association and with Aqua West  take the view that wise planning  and sensible regulation are unnecessary, that those who say  yes, but let's do it properly, are  against growth and economic;  renewal.  The government in Victoria,  as all too clearly shown in the  past weeks of scandalous revelations, has the same view - that  we can do it all and to hell with  the consequences. The people  who live here have a different  view.  Bracken unbeaten  Ronnie Brackett, aged 10, and weighing 70 lbs., from the  Sunshine Coast Boxing Club showed the determination which  has earned him three straight victories in his novice year of  boxing. Brackett recently defeated Jack Gagnon from the  North Shore Boxing Club at a boxing meet held in Squamish.  Cold swim for karate  by J.

Send your entries to reach the Coast  News, Box 460, Gibsons this week. Last week's winner was Keith  Howse, Box 1479, Gibsons, who correctly located the hydrant on  the wharf in Gibsons.  Wilson says  Investors prefer  clear regulations  The Qualicum Indian Hatchery Icing Plant on Vancouver  Island is an "extremely efficient, well-run, clean  operation" according to Area A  Director Gordon Wilson, who,  along with other regional  district personnel and representatives from the local aquaculture industry visited the site  last Friday.  Here fish from the wild fishery are fillettcd and iced for sale  throughout the Island and the  lower mainland; in the future  the plant will smoke some of the  fish.  "I was impresseed with how  clean it was," Wilson told the  Coast News. "I would have no  objection to such an operation  in any industrially zoned area  onjthe Coast.  "It's a clean, good industry,  and in Qualicum, because it is a  co-operative, a great deal of  care is taken to get the maximum benefit from every fish,"  he continued. "Obviously that  way you get a better grade of  fish which brings a better price  on the market."  Wilson said that it is clear this  type of activity is not suitable  for in the midst of a residential  area, but that, in an industrial  zone in Area A, such an operation could create employment  where a large percentage of the  workers are employed in the  fishing industry.  "It could be year-round," he  explained. "It's the type of industry that can be used by the  commercial fishery, aquaculture  and the ground fishery. All  these groups could use it."  The Indian agent at the  Qualicum Hatchery ice plant  said that the one major problem  she saw in the aquaculture industry was the presence of too  much "hype", according to  Wilson.  "She said she believed that  there was too much easy money  and too many people who were  in it for a fast dollar and would  then get out quick," Wilson,  said. "Her fear was that  legitimate  farmers  will  likely  suffer as a result of the 'get rich  quick' artists, as she put it."  Today, Monday, the ongoing site indentification project  with which Wilson is largely involved, will continue and the information will be developed into a draft proposal for an Area  A Development Plan, Wilson  told the Coast News.  "The Area Planning Commission will be fully involved as  will be the entire community.  What we want to do is pre-zone  the area and set aside locations  for specific uses, such as recreation, industry, commercial,  aquaculture, etc.  "That way, when a prospective investor comes to the Coast  he can look at the map and see  exactly where hisiype of activity  can take placet" Wilson explained.  "It makes sense to have  regulations, especially with a  comparatively new industry like  aquaculture. This ad hoc 'frontier' mentality will only lead to  over-crowding, environmental  mis-management and the eventual decay of the industry," he  continued.  "Let's face it, a wise investor  will be fearful of coming into an  area where there are no wisely  planned regulations," he added.  "We want to encourage investors and this seems to be the  way to go."  Loan  cupboard  The Registered Nurses' Loan  Cupboard has recently been  taken over by the St. Mary's  Hospital Auxiliary.

The imposition of a criminal  records search is initially proposed for prospective employees, according to the draft  policy which Secretary-treasurer  Roy Mills has drawn up for the  board's consideration.  Ministry of Human Resources (MHR) holds a position  that all existing school district  employees should be subject to  such a search where they are  employed in a role working with  MHR clients, although this has  . been the subject of discussions  with employee groups who generally are opposed to this procedure.  That a need exists for a policy  applying equally to all staff  working in the school district  was agreed by trustees.  "What we do with the information is crucial," Trustee  Dave Mewhort said, "but I  can't understand why any group  would not want to co-operate  with this."  The trustees also agreed that  there was no need to know everything in an employee's criminal record that did not pertain  to children, but the need to protect the children of the school  district was clearly supported by  the trustees. ���'..  Rally  promotes  Circle  Tour  On Friday,  March  14, six  groups of participants will embark from six separate locations  on' the Sunshine Circle Tour  route to re-enact portions of the  travels of Lemuel Gulliver.      L  A co-operative venture of the  Tourism   Association   of  Southwestern   B.C., > the  Tourism Association of Vancouver   Island,   the   local  Chambers of Commerce and  the   Association   of  Kinsmen  Clubs, this tour, car rally and  treasure hunt is designed to promote tourism along this newly  . developed circle route.  Harvey Brooks, President of  the North Shore Kinsmen Club,  has been appointed as Project  Co-ordinator, to formulate the  clubs and the routes. He will  also co-ordinate the participation of local Kinsmen Clubs  with regard to establishing  checkpoints and hosting social-  functions for the participants.  The six areas involved are:  Greater Vancouver, Gibsons  and the Sunshine Coast, Powell:  River, Comox/Courtenay,  Nanaimo and Greater Victoria.  The rally /treasure hunt will  commence at 3 p.m. on Friday,  March 14. Participants will  follow a series of clues and  directions to visit each of the six  areas within a specified time  period.  Application forms will be  available from local Chambers  of Commerce and from the  Tourism Association offices in  Vancouver and Victoria.

"We want more consultation  about screening," he told the  Coast News last week. "We  would like to see it work, we  want it to hold water but we are  concerned that they are doing  this too fast.  "But it is only draft policy, so  we will be talking more with the  board about it and we are in  consultation with Pat Clarke  (president of the B.C. Teachers'  Federation [BCTF])," he added.  Clarke told the Coast News  that the BCTF has had meetings  with the Ministry of Education  on the topic.  "We have what you might  call a verbal agreement with the  ministry that we have no objection to school board checks of  records inasmuch as they are of  offences involving children," he  said.  "We wouldn't like to see  such checks be very much  broader," he continued. "That  would start getting into the field  of Human Rights.  "And we didn't discuss the  situation where people already  employed are subject to criminal records checks so we don't  Board votes  down war toys  A resolution which urges the  consumer to consider carefully  the impact which war toys and  clothing may have upon the  child's development was passed  by the board of school trustees  at last Tuesday's school board  meeting.  Trustee Dave Mewhort was  riot happy with the resolution.  "I'm not convinced," he told  the board. "The research is not  conclusive (that war toys have a  deleterious effect).  "I'm for peace," he continued, "but we are not  debating whether war is okay or  not. What we are debating is  whether war toys have a bad effect on kids, and I would like  the board to do more research."  Trustee John Struthers was  also skeptical about the vote.  He said that some of his constituents had approached him and  expressed the view that this was  not the business of the board.  Trustee Doris Fuller was  quick to respond to this.  "I feel it is imperative that  the board state publicly and  through the B.C. School  _ Trustees Association (BCSTA)  how we feel," she sad. "Now is  the time to act. Manufacturers  are ordering now for next Christmas!"  The role of the board in shaping the lives of the students entrusted to them was a point raised by Trustee Janice Edmonds.  "As leaders in the community we have a responsibility to  help form our students into fully functioning members of society and this is an important  part of that," she told the  board.  Trustee Maureen Clayton  agreed.  "It is imperative that we be  seen as showing leadership  roles," Clayton said. "People  should be aware of the effects  and consider all the angles."  Mary Belle Buhner looked on  the question from another point .  of view.  "We have been immersed in  the subject of abuse," she  stated. "To separate what we  have here and the last few months of talk about awareness is  impossible. Abuse is an exercise  in power, and war is the ultimate power play.  "Abuse of any kind is not acceptable," Bulmer continued.  The resolution, which the  communications committee had  drawn up at the request of the  board, also urges 'parents,  children, schools, manufacturers and distributors to  refocus from toys, games and  clothes which are preoccupied  with force and violence to ones  which promote peace, co-operation and constructive  behaviours'.  It was made in response to a  similar resolution received from  the New Westminster school  board late last year. According  to Secretary-treasurer Roy Mills  more than 25 other school  boards in the province have  adopted similar resolutions all  of which will be presented at the  up-coming Annual General  Meeting of die BCSTA.  have a position either for-or  against it as yet," he added.>  According to Clarke, School  District 46 is the first in the pfb-  . vince to institute such a policy.  Harry Almond, president of  the CUPE local, told the Coast  News that his union has had  discussons with the board.    ;-  "We feel that this is going'a  little too far," he said. "In  some fields it is necessary (as  with teachers) but in others it is  not."  CUPE members and tfie  ���school board labour management committee are having  discussions on the topic but according to Almond it would be  hard to say whether the board  would go ahead with such policy with or without their approval. ;:^  Mills will take the draft policy  back for further work and present it again at the next school  board meeting on February 1L  When you're looking for a way-j  to ease the tax bite and retire iri  comfort - consider the  Advantages of an  QmvedtoU ;  RRSP  1.
