Gibsons elections  Candidates face  Gibsons voters  A thoughtful Sheila Kitson, president of the Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce, chaired the all-candidates meeting at the  Gibsons Legion Hall last Wednesday night. From left to right,  Aldermanic hopefuls, Gerry Dixon and John Reynolds, mayoral  candidate Diane Strom, Sheila Kitson, mayoral candidate Alderman John Burnside, incumbent Alderman Robert Maxwell and  mayoral candidate Benoit Le Page.  ���Fran Burnside photo  Gibsons aldermanic and  mayoralty candidates faced an  audience of 50 electors in the  Gibsons Legion/ Hall last  Wednesday evening to state  their respective platforms and to  answer questions from the  floor.  Aldermanic candidates Gerry  Dixon, Alderman Robert Maxwell and John Reynolds reiterated their positions as outlined in last week's Coast News.  All candidates share an interest  in seeing public works continue  in the town, in encouraging  small business, tourism, and the  wise spending of the taxpayers'  dollars.  The mayoralty candidates  spoke next.  Alderman Burnside referred  to the achievements of the pre-  |^ !^%&t c^n^i^  phase of the Downtown Revitalization Program* the passage  of the sewer borrowing by-law  for the enlargement of the  sewage treatment plant, and the  issue of water supply for the top  of the town, now close to solution through co-operation with  In School Board elections  'V;.-*-  Five seek three trustee seats  THOMAS FERGUSON  Bowen Island resident,  Thomas Ferguson, is a candidate for election to the school  board in Rural Area "2". He  has been involved in formal and  informal education for the past  28 years and believes that his extensive experience would stand  him in good stead as trustee.  Ferguson, who is an independent candidate, unaffiliated  with any political party or  special interest group, believes  that local autonomy must be  restored to ensure a high quality  relationship between the school  trustees and the communities  they serve.  The Community School concept is important to Ferguson  who has served as community  school co-ordinator for the  Bowen Island Community  School. He sees this as a means  of achieving greater community  involvement in the school.  Ferguson wants the Bowen  Island Community School to remain with School District No.  46, and notes that Bowen Island  and the Sunshine Coast share  Please turn to page 7  DORIS FULLER  Long-time Sunshine Coast  resident Doris Fuller is running  for election to the school board  in Rural Area "2" because she  feels that its time to once again  work for the betterment of the  school system.  Fuller's platform is comprehensive but the most pressing and important concern, she  feels, is the return of control to  the school board over its  budget, to determine funding  for local needs. Along with the  need for local autonomy over  the budget, Fuller states that the  board and teachers should be  able to-exercise more influence  on the curriculum and curriculum development.  Costs and functions of the  administration in the district  should be examined in conjunction with the Teachers' Association, and Fuller would like to  see trustees visit the school on a  regular basis.

In a conversation with the  Coast News last week Mewhort,  who is the director of the  Wilson Creek Family Centre,  said that he had originally run  for office last June because he  wanted to see a safe abuse-free  environment in the schools,  through the. development of  policy and prevention programs.  "A clear and understandable  policy is invaluable - we are  responsible for seeing that  children are not abused,"  Mewhort continued. "It is the  adult's responsibility not to do  the assaulting. We have been  working on the development of  policy, even though it has met  with every conceivable obstacle.  Now it's near completion."  Mewhort's experience also includes   negotiating   contracts  with the provincial government  and he looks forward to being a  Please turn to page 7  SANDRA VAUGHAN  Egmont resident, Sandra  Vaughan, wants a position on  the school board because she  has become very concerned 'by  the clear lack of concern for the  education of (our) children by  those whom we elected to represent us.'  "We almost never hear  anything about the children  anymore," she wrote in a  prepared statement given to the  Coast News last week.  At a November 5 all candidates meeting at Sechelt  Elementary School, Vaughan  elaborated on this point of  view.  "We need better PR," she  said. "We have to let the public  know what's happening, allow  parents to have more say. There  must be more communication  between the School Board and  parents."  Vaughan also took issue with  the fact that elected representatives seemed to show more  concern "about provincial  politics, and suporting political  papers than the safety and well-  Please turn to page 7  the Sunshine Coast  Regional  Board.   ... ��� .

Le Page raised issues of federal  briberies and kickbacks in the  Northwest Territories and in the ^  t��tikonHSe related thissstate-ofefe  affairs to the municipality by  saying that the council members  were 'puppets on Ottawa's string',   controlled   by   multi*  national   corporations   and  operating in the fascist mode.  Le Page also said that youth  must take the reins and the  development of youth-oriented  projects would be a priority  were he to be elected. >.  The third candidate fo*  mayor, Diane Strom, in a brief;  statement cited her experience  as deputy mayor and alderman;  saying that she feels 'there is a  need for broader representation  on council'. y  Two issues concerned Strom:  the sewage treatment plant and  the water problem. "Tourisriv  should also be encouraged,"  said Strom, adding that her con-i  cern for the community, heir-  ability, and the time she has to  offer would be an advantage  were she to be elected.  When the floor was opened  to the audience, the first ques-"  tions asked by Colonel Doug  Dickson were directed to Alderman Burnside. -  Dickson asked whether Burnside would be able to work with  clerk-treasurer Lorraine Goddard, considering the fact that  two years ago a major plank in  his platform had called into:  question the way in which Goddard had obtained her current  position.  Please turn to page 6  Election  delayed  There will be no election held  for the position of school  trustee for the Town of Gibsons, presently held by Janice  Edmonds, due to the fact that  the election was not posted at  the correct time.  The Town of Gibsons has  asked the Minister of Municipal  Affairs to issue a warrant calling for a special election for the  position.  The opinion of the ministry  at this time is that this seems to  be the appropriate procedure to  follow. If the warrant is issued,  the clerk-treasurer, Lorraine  Goddard, will have to establish  the date of the election within  10 days of the date of the warrant.

I  requirements  It has become clear in the years since the provincial  government introduced its restraint program that school  board trustees must bring to the position not just good  will, but skills in negotiating, an up-to-date knowledge of  the literature of child abuse, both sexual and physical, a  solid background in what it means to form a budget and a  strong commitment to the children of the district and their  parents.  Next Saturday voters will decide on three seats on the  school board, two in Rural Area "2" and one in Rural  Area"!".  We note that of the three candidates running at the  lower end of the coast, i.e., in Areas D, E, F, and Bowen  Island, it was only Don Douglas, longtime incumbent  trustee, who neglected to tell us what he's going to do if he  is once again elected to office.  Education is changing rapidly and our system is not  keeping up. We cannot look to what we did in the past to  guide us into the future when so little remains the same.  And we look to the upper end of the coast where Sandra  Vaughan is running against incumbent, Dave Mewhort.  Well meaning as Vaughan may be, it is simply not enough.  The children of School District 46 deserve representation  that is informed and imaginative, with the vision to see  beyond the confines of the Simshine Coast to the position  our children will occupy in the world outside.  The school board administers a budget of more than $ 10  million and has entrusted to its care more than 2,700  children. That's an enormous responsibility and neither  looking into the past nor calling on a fund of sentimental  goodwill is enough to bring to the task at hand.

Benoit LePage is presenting  himself as a candidate for the seat which will also be  contested by Warren McKibbin.  NDP leader Dave Barrett was the featured speaker at  a fund-raising dinner in the Roberts Creek Community  Hall last Friday which saw the old hall filled to capacity  with the party faithful.  10 YEARS AGO  , Sechelt Council stated that the village had no intention of changing its municipal status and requested  that a "dissolution clause" in the airport agreement requested by Gibsons council, which would provide for  total ownership of the airport to revert to Gibsons  should Sechelt "cease to be", be removed from the  agreement. In a letter to Transport Canada Sechelt  Council denied rumours that the village was planning a  change in status and stated that the clause was unnecessary and in bad taste. - -~ ���  15 YEARS AGO  Sechelt Council announced that since the Municipal  Office was at last completely paid for, council was considering an extension of the building which would bring  provincial offices, courts and the municipal offices  under one roof.  Ken Watson sells his Ken's Lucky Dollar store in the  Village of Gibsons to W.D. Edney who will shortly settle  in Gibsons with his wife Joyce, son Graham and  daughter Julia.  20 YEARS AGO  Sechelt was considering a move to expand it's  municipal boundaries from the western end of West  Sechelt to the Girl Guide Camp at Wilson Creek. West  Sechelt, however, was reported to be reconsidering the  amalgamation proposal and backing away from a  merger with the village.  25 YEARS AGO  A Gibsons and Area Ratepayers' Association meeting  devoted most of the evening to a discussion of the problems of garbage collection and disposal in unorganized areas.  30 YEARS AGO  Heavy rainfalls on the coast nearly wiped out the  Claholm Power Plant. The rampaging waters and high  winds, which undermined the switch yard and tipped  transformers against one another, also knocked down  several large trees in Roberts Creek and caused  widespread power outages.  Gibson' newly completed Public Library announced  two weeks of "open house" events to enable residents  to become familiar with the new facilities.  35 YEARS AGO  The Coast News noted the passing of Garfield Edwards, who died suddenly while on a visit to friends at  Porpoise Bay. For some years Edwards and his brother  operated a "boat-store", the popular M.V. Pappy, along  the coast, earning Edwards the nickname of "the travelling storekeeper."  40 YEARS AGO  The Coast News noted that the Sechelt Improvement  Association was rapidly growing into an influential  body in the community, pressing for road improvements  and extended water service.  A prototype of the newly invented power chain saw  was demonstrated locally at Halfmoon Bay.  /T  The Sunshine  CO-PUBLISHERS  9ohn Burnside M.M.

Devine's  last picture of the stump of the Big Tree that had grown at Georgia  and Granville Streets was taken in February 1887 with Mr. and  Mrs. W.H. Grassie (of Grassie Jewellers) standing in the snow  beside tt, the remains of the butt cut visible in the background. The  following month both butt and stump were burned out to make  way. for the construction of Georgia Street. The story of the Big  Tree, however, doesn't end in this ignominious manner. In the  Hastings Mill at the foot of Dunlevy Street, four rounds had been  cut from the second section of the tree before it was reduced to  lumber for shipment to Europe. Two of these rounds - approximately 8 feet in diameter - were placed on display outside the new  CPR building at the foot of Granville. In the above picture taken  by Devine in the winter of 1886-7, the Bank of British Columbia occupies the right hand side of the building. Before the bank opened  on September 1, 1886, Vancouver's citizens had used the banking  services of the post office for all business transactions. (The post  office only closed its last accounts in 1967.) The left hajf of the  Remembrance Day  building was occupied by the CPR's general offices and the railway  station; the ticket office and waiting room were unoccupied until  May 1887 when the rail line from Port Moody to Vancouver was  finally completed. A third round of the famous Big Tree was ;  displayed outside the real estate office of A.W. Ross on Hastings .  Street between Hamilton and Homer. Devine's photo of this office  with Ross in the doorway and his brother-in-law Mayor Malcolm'  McLean standing in front of the Big Tree round also shows a cut"  from another slightly smaller free that Ross has used as a notice'���  board. It advertises lots on Granville or Hastings Streets from.  $1000 to $2000, and lots on Pender for $750 to $1200. The fourth  round of the Big Tree was sent to Port Moody and shipped from ^  there by the CPR on August 28,1886 to be exhibited in Toronto at  the annual Industrial Exhibition. From there, early the following ^  year, it was sent to London to be displayed at the Crystal Palace in ,  honour of Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee celebrations. What,';  happened to if after that is not recorded.  ���photo courtesy Betty C. Keller  War is mankind's tragedy  by Dianne Evans  War is mankind's tragedy.  From the dawn of our history  men in the prime of their lives  have answered the call to arms  and died on battlefields scattered across the world.  The tragedy lies in so much  dying and so much pain, but  most of all it lies in the thought  that there seems to be no end to  man's propensity for war.  Through the centuries.man  has, time and time' again,  sought to solve his problems by  the use of force. And those who  hold the power and wield it  have, every time, taken the  trumpet of war in hand, and  called upon the noblest of  man's sentiments to bring him  onto the bloody fields of battle.  Diplomats and statesmen,  tsars and presidents, prime  ministers and generals have  plotted and planned, have  played the game behind the  scenes, and when all else has  failed to achieve whatever their  objectives might have been, it is  they who have asked for what  they call "the supreme  sacrifice".  Men have lined up at the  recruiting stations, lied about  their ages to be accepted, run  away from home to join up,  and with the best of motives.  They want to fight for freedom,  to fight oppression, to stop a  madman, to keep the scourge of  communism at bay, to stop the  fascists,  to halt  western im  perialism, to kill the Arabs or  the Christians or the Jews.  Whatever the reason, the  game players know exactly how  to make the call almost impossible to resist. When a man goes  to war, he's fighting to save his  mother or his sister and his way  of life. The players know well  how to twist a man's heart, to  tap his noblest instincts, and  once they have him, they know  how to keep him.  To the millions who have  given that sacrifice we pay  tribute every year. We are  thankful for those who returned, we honour them and the  pain they endured on our  behalf.  But every year I think about  all the farewells; I think what it  would be like to stand on the  station platform and watch the  train pull away, I think of that  one last look, one last sight of a  beloved face.  I think what it would be like  to be on the train, going into a  ghastly unknown where death  would be a companion, where  blood and smoke and lice and  the smell of cordite and the  sound of shells, mud and  hunger and thirst and pain  would fill the days.  I think of the extraordinary  feats of heroism and the friendships forged in hell, the excitement and the loneliness, the fear  and hopelessness; for some  there'd be a homecoming,  awkward and overwhelming,  for some there'd be a lonely  grave in a foreign land.  Every year I'm dismayed by  the idea of war and what it  meant to those who fought  -every year I think of the ones  who were left behind, and every  year I pray that one day, and,  may it be one day soon, we'll  learn a better way.  The Man Within  / irrigated the unlidded eyes  No longer able to close.  I bathed the darkness of his face ;  77iar used to be his nose.  I eased apart the glued-up lips  And very gently fed him...  While he thought of the tank that exploded and burnt  And the girl who refused to wed him.  I tended the man in the saline pouch.  His shin all burnt and torn.  And the man whose beauty was quite intact,  Only his brain was gone.  And the man who needs two new legs  If he ever would walk again.  And the man with no hands, all skill destroyed  In the ruin of his plane.  The dream of my life was a man unscathed...  He hadn V joined the war.  He had arms and legs and a brain in his head  Because he knew the score.  We did the town on a tank of gas  Obtained by dark design,  And ate black market food in his flat  And drank some smuggled wine.  He was flaunting coupons for candy and clothes  When I suddenly saw him plain.  He was the sick man...this man with the face,  The hands, the legs and the brain.  While innocents gambled their life and limb  He plotted for profit and gain.  I rose and ran from the rot in his soul  To the shattered world of the sane.  Jean Sheridan  Maryanne's    viewpoint  Thoughts about local elections  by Maryanne West  Some thoughts about local  elections which have been percolating on the back burner for  the past year and which the recent visit of the Minister of  Education reinforced.  The minister was slick, self-  assured, loud spoken, all politician, never relaxing for a mo-  nent to become a person even  when talking to Elphinstone  students about his personal life  and recent visit to Britain.  So much the politician that,  although we had agreed the student interview would not be  political he couldn't resist inserting very political comments,  comparing the salaries of British  teachers with those of British  Columbia; giving an average  figure for B.C. without making  it clear that some levels of administration were included as  well as a number of fringe  benefits.  The figures did not represent  take home pay though that was  the impression he gave. I doubt  it was done with malice  aforethought, he's just so used  to throwing out statistics that he  spoke without thinking. One  can imagine him spouting such  information at home at the supper table.  I have to admit that I do not  find the political animal very attractive, thought I've no doubt  the majority, including Mr.  Heinrich went into politics with  high ideals, determined to serve  their constituents to the best of  their ability. The trouble is that  party politics take over,  especially for those in the  government party. Staying in  power quickly becomes the imperative and takes precedence  over the public good and service  to the community.  Which brings me back to  elections at the community level  and the hope that we can hold  off as long as it's humanly  possible letting party politics  become involved in our council  and board elections.  Of course I don't mean that  those with active party affiliations should not run for civic  positions, but that they should  do so as individuals on their  personal merit and without party backing.  Once the party political  machines roll into action the  whole scene will change from  our present low key style of  town hall meetings to the battlefield arena of party politics  with confrontation and controversy. It might be entertainment for some, but all of us will  be the losers.  Before long candidates will  have the added expense of such  nonsense as campaign  managers, offices, lawn signs  and only the rich will be able to  afford to aspire to office - and  again our options will be limited  and we'll be the losers.  It is generally agreed that  there is a great need for people  to run for office who have proven records of dedication to the  community as a whole rather  than any particular faction, and  such people can be found in all  walks of life not only among the  party faithful.  It is also becoming generally  accepted that we get further by  co-operation than by confrontation and the last thing we needis  councils split down political  lines and thus doomed to  fossilization.  Both the school and regional  boards already have the difficulties of geographical regions  to overcome and do not need  other divisive problems.  We expect those who run for  office to represent the community and serve it, let's give  them all the help we can by  keeping our elections free from  politician interference and encourage those" who are elected to  co-operate with each other  regardless of their differing  viewpoints. Coast News, November 11,1985  alderman's clef eii.ce  3,.  nam-  RE-ELECT  Editor:  After reading in the letters-  section of the Tuesday,  November 5, 1985 edition of the  Press under the heading "Role  Model" the opinions of Mr.  Charles Lee of Selma Park,  with regard to Mr. Burnside, I  now wish to temper Mr. Lee's  opinions with those of a citizen  of Gibsons, namely mine.  To begin I would like to congratulate Mr. Richard T. Proctor, along with his editor Mr.  Mark Rogers, for inflicting on  their readers a new low in  publishing and editorial discretion} in choosing to print Mr.  Charles Lee's obviously vicious  personal attack on Mr. John  Burnside. Good show, the integrity of your newspaper is no  longer a question in my mind.  Possibly some might dignify  Mr. Lee's remarks, along with  Mr. Proctor's and Mr. Rogers'  decision to print them, by referring to them as muck-racking in  the worst yellow journalism  tradition; but to my sensibilities  the printing of such a letter as  Mr. Lee wrote deserves its own  new category, more attuned to  the imagery conjured up by  "Green Slime Journalism".  Mr. Lee's sanctimoniously  postured moral indignation  might impress those with  similarly sanctimonious leanings,   but   to   this  reader   his  underlying motives are  transparent and resemble more  a disgusting mixture of sanctimony, sour grapes, envy and  venom.  Mr. Lee, along with Mr. Proctor and Mr. Rogers also appear  to me to have their own  underlying motives in attempting to publicly re-try and re-  punish Mr. Burnside. In this  reader's opinion, this attempted  double-jeopardy, self-serving  innuendo and profound lack of  real personal integrity, not to  mention an ostentatious maliciousness played no small role.  And speaking of roles, or  "Role Models" as did Mr. Lee,  the "Role Model" he presented.  in the name of opinion has actually helped me to decide to  cast my vote in the Gibsons  Mayoralty race in favour of Mr.  John Burnside.  I, for one, forgive you for being human, Mr. Burnside, and I  acknowledge Mr. Lee's "Opine-  ionated" fancied image of  himself as being more than  Or, is Mr. Lee just  kettle calling the pot  for  �� '  Vote DAVE MEWHORT  on Sat., November 16  A man concerned about our children  and our community.  - Director of Wilson Creek Family Centre (5  years).  - 8 years experience working with children  in the social services  - Honesty, integrity and a willingness to  meet the issues head-on  - 13 year resident ot the Sunshine Coast   ..

Willie Long  Garbage problems in Langdale area  Editor:  I live on Wharf Road in  Langdale, and I am writing this  letter in the hope that others like  it will follow.  We seem to have a problem  with garbage in this  neighbourhood and it is due  mainly to the fact that the stuff  is collected only once every two  weeks.  One week is plenty of time  for the average can of  household trash to begin rotting  and stinking and attracting  every scavenger within smelling  distance. Even when cans are  fitted with lids, dogs and racoons are big enough and wily  enough to knock them over and  get at the contents. Every week  there are problems with raided  cans and garbage strewn around  yards and roadsides.  The "recycling days" that  have replaced every other garbage day are all very well, and  the service is certainly commendable, but must it be done at the  expense of sensible frequency of  garbage collection? Surely the  two services could be performed  at the same time, or one could  be done on a different day of  the week.  1 would like to know if there  are others who are dissatisfied  with garbage collection on a biweekly basis.

His  knowledge of Gibsons and it's  residents was unmatched. When  Mr. Labonte made a decision it  was based on thought and experience.  Mr. Labonte's outlook on  tourism and the future of Gibsons was one of optimism and  support. He was a definite asset  in the start up and success of  our,company. t ,.  I'm sure the new mayor will  feel enthusiastic about tourism  and recognize how much  tourism dollars can help our  community which has been suffering lately because our other  industries have been slow.

Pressure from the community, spearheaded by SCEPP,  resulted in Macmillan Bloedel  employing Michael Conway-^  Brown and his crew to girdle offending alders in several sites,  instead of using 2,4-D, as  reported in the last issue of the  Coast News.

Ferry engineer, was recounting  jjbw his memories of the campaign in Northwest Europe in  vVorld War 11 were brought  gainfully clear to mind.  <"I had to stop visiting those  memorial cenotaphs," he said,  because the thought of all that  $raste of life, the futility of it,  just overwhelmed me."  ^And he added, "But if I had  i$> live it over, and the same  ���grim situation faced our countries again I know that I'd be  $��ere to join up."  ^Pieter, who came to Canada  i|L 1924 from Holland with his  parents and family when he was  tj6t yet four years old, grew up  ir�� Pitt Meadows. He enlisted  with the Royal Nederland forces  a�� Stratford, Ontario, in 1941.  ^Trained first as a paratrooper  b'y the British Airborne, Pieter  lifer became an artilleryman  wjth the 25-pounder guns in the  lmnses Irene brigade, a unit of  just over a thousand men. Men  d$ Dutch origin from Canada,  ttie Dutch East Indies; South  4hica, and from the homeland  \0tp had escaped the Occupation, made up the brigade.  ftThe Prinses Irene fought with  rjife British army in northwest  i&rope from D-day plus three  5fi���������=-������������  to the end of the war the next  May.  "We were in Nijmegen sopn  after the American paratroopers had captured the  bridge and then went back to  Graves. Some hot action  there," said Pieter.  "Our gun layer was uncannily accurate," said Pieter. "He  once put an armour-piercing  shell splat! between the turret of  a Panther tank and its chassis,  jamming the turret so that it  could not rotate its gun. Then  with the next round the tank  track was blown off. Events  weren't always that favourable  though."  While in Holland on this recent visit Pieter renewed acquaintance with cousins and  aunts and met other relatives  for the first time. How was your  Dutch after so many years?  "For the first couple of weeks  I'd run out of vocabulary in  mid-sentence, but by the end of  the third week I was fluent  again."  A memento that Pieter is  justly proud of and that he acquired on this visit to Holland is  a commemorative plate made  by Delfts of Schoonhaven. Only  veterans of the Prinses Irene  Brigade may have one of these  plates that lists the battle  honours of the: unit.  "I think I'll offer to display  this in the remembrance case in  Branch 109 for a while," said  Pieter.

Gibsons  886-7112  Elect  JOHN  BURNSIDE  Gibsons Mayor  We Need:  To plan ahead for major public  works expenditures to minimize costly borrowings;  To continue to upgrade our  facilities throughout Gibsons to better serve our residents and visitors;  To insist on getting full value for  every dollar of the taxpayers' money  spent;  To support our library and museum  as fully as possible/recognizing  them as the community treasures  *hey are;  To seek, perhaps in co-operation  with service clubs, to give as much  community concern as possible to  our still somewhat neglected young  people.  The Changes:  l!  The story of the past two years in Gibsons has been a story of exciting achievement in difficult conditions.  Two years ago the lower town was languishing sadly. For years we were unable  to get even the public washrooms at  Pioneer Park open for the use of the  public and visitors.  Today, Pioneer Park is the pride of the  Sunshine Coast with its flower garden, attractive and busy tourist booth and, yes,  open washrooms.  Two years ago Gibsons Council had  been unable to agree on financing  methods to undertake the Downtown  Revitalization Program. It had been hanging fire for three years.  Today, the Town of Gibsons is the envy  of the Sunshine Coast for the transforma  tion which has begun in the historic part  of town and the provincial government is  amazed at how much has been done with  so little money.  Two years ago the sudden departure of  the administrator and the assumption of  his duties by the then mayor caused the  council to be regarded doubtfully by many  of its citizens.  Today, the Gibsons Council is properly  regarded as a body as competent and progressive as any on the Sunshine Coast.  I can say, without fear of contradiction,  that no one has worked harder or contributed more fully than I to effect that turnaround. It is to attempt to keep the  dynamic of achievement carefully and  constructively alive that I offer to serve as  mayor for the next two challenging years.  The Challenges:  6  a  il  And challenging they will be. The sewer  plant must be enlarged, the backlog of  paving for our neglected roads must be  whittled down, sure provision of a water  supply adequate for the town's future  must be planned for, and taxes must be  maintained near their current acceptable  levels.  We must in the next two years continue  to insist on full value for every dollar  spent as we have in the past two. I believe  my experience in meeting a payroll in a  labour-intensive field during the past few  difficult years has provided me with the  requisite, practical, managerial experience to serve Gibsons well for the  next two years.  I invite your support, assuring you that I  will continue to defend Gibsons' interests  vigorously in the regional arena, while at  the same time standing ready to cooperate with other bodies when the Gibsons taxpayers can be well served by  such co-operation.  Examples of long standing difficulties  cleared up or in the process of being  cleared up by co-operation: the major  highways plan for future development including the by-pass which will take the  heavy through-going trucks out of the pic  turesque centre of our town has now been  agreed to by all local governments and  awaits only action from the province; a  regional house-numbering system has  been co-operatively agreed upon and is  ready for implementation, with significant  assistance to our emergency services; an  engineering report from Dayton and  Knight which I requested pointed to a $1  million savings for local taxpayers in the  region and the town through joint water  works, costly duplication will be avoided,  the town's equity in its water system remains assured and the top of the town  will be more satisfactorily served and protected.  The question of boundary revision  which I disputed with the regional board  was resolved in favour of the town. The  right of property owners to join the town  when they wished to do so and where it  made sense was defended in a year long  battle. The provincial government advised  the regional board to 'hold its counsel' in  such matters in the future.  For resolute defence of Gibsons' interests coupled with constructive cooperation wherever possible, I believe I  am the candidate for mayor best suited  for the tasks ahead.  i  Let's Set High Expectations of Ourselves  GIBSONS DESERVES NO LESS  i-i -mri "���v'smiiimr���'���imrriifnr'iuimtiMi  THIS IS A PAID ADVERTISEMENTMuauuimiuuuuHMn-aouou ICoast News, November 11,1985  Principal of Cedar Grove Elementary, Colleen Elson watches as  chairman of the West Howe Sound Recreation Commission, Dick  Derby and Area E Director Jim Gurney, put the finishing touches  to a sign for the tennis court recently upgraded by the Commission.  ���iThe court at Langdale Elementary has also recently been refurbished by the Commission. ���Dianne Evans photo  Referendum important  The referendum is necessary  Gurney said, because the Commission is losing a large part of  its tax base due to the elimination of the machinery and  equipment tax. The tax base  was previously divided three  ways: residential, industrial,  and machinery and equipment.  To offset this loss, the three  dollar a year for two years increase has been proposed with a  $100,000 limit.  "We've worked on tennis  courts, parks, beach access,  Whispering Firs Park,  washrooms at Brothers Park as  well as lighting, fencing,  bleachers and back  stops, "Gurney continued.  "Also, I'd like to make it  clear that we're not raising the  amount we spend - we already  spend $95,000 each year - but  before it was set at two mills,  now because of government  regulations, we have to set a  limit, which we've put at  $100,000."  The referendum is being held  in conjunction with other local  elections on November 16.  > The West Howe. Sound  (Recreation Commission is asking the support of industrial and  Residential voters in Areas E and  J7 in a referendum approving an  Average increase of three dollars  per year for each tax paying  household for the next two  years.  y The limit that may be raised  fey taxation will also be set at  $100,000 regardless of the tax  assessment, explained Chair-  inan of the Regional Board,  Area E Director Jim Gurney in  conversation with the Coast  News.  * -"If this referendum fails the  big loser would be the pool in  Gibsons,", he said. "Seventy  fitfe per cent of the money goes  tp�� the pool, with the balance  picked up by the Town of  Gibsons.  '���} "Although we've been  critical of the pool we do  recognize its value, and for the  past year it has held its costs in  check. We support it because  it's a worthwhile thing," he  added.  Roberts    Creek  Vote for trustees  by Jeanie Parker, 886-3973  This Saturday, November 16,  is Municipal Election Day.  Roberts Creekers will be voting  for two School Trustees. There  are three candidates: Don  Douglas, Thomas Ferguson,  and Doris Fuller. Get out and  exercise your voting rights. The  poll is at Roberts Creek Elementary from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.  LEGION MEETING  There is a general meeting of  the Roberts Creek Legion this  Wednesday, November 13, at  7:30 p.m.  BAZAAR SATURDAY  The Order of the Eastern Star  is holding a Christmas Wreath  Bazaar this Saturday, November 16, from 2 to 4 p.m. It's at  the Masonic Hall at the corner  of the Highway and Hall Road  in Roberts Creek.  HYDRANT USED  The fire hydrant installed at  Geddes Road when the new  reservoir was built last year proved useful last Wednesday. The  Roberts Creek Fire Department  was called to a stumpfire that  had been burning for a week  and had gone into the ground.  That's a tough kind of fire to  fight and it took a lot of water  and time. Because there was a  hydrant nearby they were able  to send one of the trucks back  to the fire hall in case there was  another fire elsewhere.  WATER READER  Have you noticed that new  contraption on the bridge over  Roberts Creek on Lower Road?  It's for measuring the water  levels. Now Post-mistress  Margret Gardner no longer has  to climb down under the bridge  to take a reading.  BRIDGE STARTED  It was an impressive convoy  of tucks around the store and  Post Office last Tuesday. They  were bringing the concrete  beams and other materials to  start the new bridge down by  the wharf. It sure won't be the  same as the old one.  NOTE NUMBER  The Gremlins were at it  again. There was a mistake in  the Babysitter List in last week's  column: Mike Eidet's phone  number is 885-2778. Please  make that correction if you kept  the list.  We are pleased that  JIM GURNEY  will continue to be our  DIRECTOR for AREA E  We look forward to  another two years of  honest and responsible  representation.  THANKS PM!

The guest speakers for the  evening was west Sechelt resident Mike Poole who was introduced by Vince Bracewell.

But Vedo had said he will re-  1 apply for the position if certain  ^guidelines are met. Some of  these were discussed at a joint  EDC - SCRD (Sunshine Coast  Regional District) meeting November 4.  Vedo would like to see the  commission dissolved and a  non-profit corporation formed  with a five-year contract. He  recommends nearly doubling  the current annual budget of  $120,000 to $212,000, including  $55,000 a year for the position  he occupies, now paying  $38,000.  He would want the new EDC  to operate independent of local  government control, while retaining municipal and regional  district representation on the  .board of directors.  a draft breakdown, Vedo  ^ecommends      the      two  l^unicipalities and the Sechelt  an band either hire each a  siness development officer or  f designate a staff member for the  ijjob. In addition, to cover the  .^proposed budget Gibsons and  |flie Indian band would be asked  !*for   about   $24,000  annually,  ^Sechelt   about   $16,000,   the  |&CRD $95,700,  with the re-  >mainder accruing from a pro-  uncial   grant   ($37,500)   and  , Revenue from services ($15,000).  >''��� Reporting to Gibsons council  tltavember 5, Alderman John  ^Burnside said he interpreted the  'jjresponses   of  regional   board  ^directors   who   attended   the  t. meeting with the EDC as unfavourable.  :���;: "It was a bit rich for the  .yblood of those present," he  Remarked.  ��y Alderman Bob Maxwell said  pytie found it frightening that, according to the proposal, only  =l$37,000 of the total annual  ���vbudget would be spent on actual  ^projects, all tourism related.  ��y "It would cost the taxpayers  |; $175,000 worth of administrate tion to get it on the road. Have  �� these people ever had to run a  r. business and turn a profit?" he  i^sked.  Vj In October the two  ^^municipalities confirmed that,  ^through a joint application for  J^funds under the Partners In  ^Enterprise program, they could  i$brm their own EDC.  ��<! The  provincial  government  | would pay $37,500 annually for  |;jfive years on a minimum yearly  budget of $75,000. Vedo's draft  ^^commendation for a new  *?EDC is based on the implementation of this option. Under the  ppint municipal program the  IJjCRD could be asked to con-  *4tHbute as little as $17,000 but  *'���*"*---,J lose its management  over the EDC.  SCRD Chairman Jim Gurney  d in a conversation with the  ytoast News he would be hesi-  jtant to see the EDC turned over  J.-ftb the municipalities.  f|j "I'm not enthused by the way  '' "**s worked the last two years,  e never dealt with economic  m  m...  : development issues, but budget  (issues.

He said the money might be  better spent co-ordinating: interests from inside the community. He cited the approach  of the SCRD funded community development officer, directly  involving local businesses and  their associations with the process, as a more positive approach.  Barry Wilbee, interim chairman for the EDC, said development has to come from both  within the community and from  outside, and that Vedo has excelled in attracting compatible  new business.  Wilbee said the EDC is  waiting for its direction from  the local governments and has  not put forward a preferred approach. He said Vedo's draft  recommendation was not the  EDC's and that Vedo has told  the commission he regards  $75,000 a year as insufficient to  carry on economic development  as such.  Vedo was unshaken by his  critics when he talked to the  Coast News Friday.  He agreed with Gurney that  the EDC has not been as effective as it could be, but said  that's because it's top-heavy  with regional board appointees.  "If Gurney's not happy with  it, don't blame me. Blame the  regional board. They've made  the appointees. It's been  strangled by the regional  board," he said.  He said it's up to the community to create the environment for economic development, that we can't depend on  Ottawa or Victoria to provide  us with our share of the jobs in  the country.  ��� "We'll only get back what we  put in. Right now I feel like a  commercial fisherman out  there, looking at all the big fish  go by because I haven't got the  tools to catch them. I haven't  got the budget to bring them  in," he lamented.  Gibsons elections  Continued from page 1  Burnside responded by recalling that Goddard, because of  her position as mayor and chairman of the selection committee  to replace the previous administrator, had privileged information which enabled her  later to underbid candidates for  the job.  "I thought the way she got  the job was shoddy," said  Burnside, "and I still think so.  When I got on council I found  that there were some very real  difficulties to face related to the  departure of the previous administrator. Under the circumstances, Alderman Neilson,  who was of like mind, and I  delayed moving that the position be reposted until one  month before the end of the six-  month probationary period, to  let things settle down a bit.  "We pressed our position  vigorously," said Burnside,  "but we lost the democratic  vote and there, as far as I was  concerned, the matter ended. I  have made a point of letting  Mrs. Goddard know my position on this because I felt she  should know."  Burnside said that in his view  the present clerk-treasurer was a  diligent and intelligent woman  with whom he presently worked  in harmony. "I would expect  that to continue if I am reelected."  Colonel Dickson then raised  the question of an impaired  driving conviction sustained by  Burnside in April. According to  Dickson, Burnside had referred  on two occasions in his column  in the Coast. News to being  overworked and, quoting from  a recent published letter, said  that Burnside had made comments in court about being  overworked and in seeking  relief in the bottle.  Burnside welcomed the questions because 'a lot of people  have been thinking about it this  week'. He said he could not  recall having written about being overworked.  As to what was said in court,  Burnside corrected Dickson in a  controlled response. "I did not  say I was chronically overworked and taking refuge in the bottle. I will tell you what I did  say."  Then Burnside outlined the  events of April 3, 1985. It began  at 8 a.m. at the Coast News office on the first day of a trial  change of the date of publication, it continued through a  meeting at the municipal hall  until lunch time and then saw  Burnside in Sechelt 'doing the  sorts of things that have to be  done' associated with opening a  Sechelt office.  Late in the day Burnside said  he was tracked down in Sechelt  by Economic Development  Commissioner Oddvin Vedo  who asked him to attend an  urgent meeting about the  possibility of hovercraft service  to Gjbsons Harboury. ...y -_��������� .-!�� jj  "At the point I nad"fbeei|  without breakfast and lunch b,$f;  I thought since the hovercraft  meeting was to take place in the  Omega Restaurant I would at  least get dinner. It was not a  dinner meeting. At half past 10  the core group repaired to  Gramma's Pub to continue to  hash over the hovercraft  possibilities. Between half past  ten and half past eleven I was  foolish enough to consume  three or four pints of beer, was  stopped by the police in the  lower village and subsequently  charged. I pleaded guilty, paid  my fine and took my suspension."  Burnside stressed that this  was the account of an exceptional day, 'hectic by anyone's  standards' In conversation with  the Coast News subsequently,  Burnside said that he was currently working only half time at  the,Coast News and that on the  weekends.  "I foresee no difficulties in  doing the job if I am elected  mayor," said Burnside.  Other questions from the audience dealt with taxes, the  status of the bubble, the problems with the wharf, and communication between staff and  council.

He does feel, however,  that parents who wish to send  , their children to other school  -' districts should have the benefit  of an "open boundary" policy.  ^Ferguson  has  stated  that  he  believes   there   should   be   a  "referendum   on   the   Bowen  '. Island - West Vancouver boundary issue if it is necessary.  .    Speaking  at  the  All  Can-  1 didates meeting, held November  i 5 at Sechelt Elementary School,  f Ferguson said that he believes in  fa well-funded library system,  t and in the concept of main-  ' streaming both the slow learner  (and the gifted child. This is an  | idea   Ferguson   has   had   experience with in his work as the  1 Director of Public Education  for the Kinsmen Rehabilitation  ; Foundation of B.C.: he has held  this postion since 1981.  Much of Ferguson's experience has been in the direction and production of educational films, both in Canada,  where he worked for the Na  tional Film Board and independently, and in the USA  where he worked at Harvard  University.  Upon his return to Canada,  Ferguson moved to Toronto to  develop the Toronto Public  Libraries' Forest Hill Learning  Resource Centre, the first public  learning resource centre in  North America; continuing  education is still of special interest to Ferguson.  "I believe that we are a*  mature, democratic society,"  states Ferguson, "capable of  making choices. Therefore we  must do all we can to enhance  local autonomy and community  involvement in our school  systems.  "I am running to serve all of  Rural Area "2", and if elected,  I would be a trustee for the  whole Sunshine Coast, not just  for Bowen Island," he added.

Fuller also believes that the  employees of the school board  have a right to free collective  bargaining, and she congratulated the school board on  their adoption, in principle, of  the Solidarity and Labour  Council's Economic Strategy.  The co-operation the school  board has shown with the  Sechelt Indian Band in pioneering major innovations in Indian  education is applauded by  Fuller, who would like to see the  programs offered to other  children in the district.  Bowen Island is also a concern; Fuller supports the  residents' right to determine  their own future by referendum  although she would be sorry to  see the school leave the district  because of its positive influence  on education, she stated.  Responding to a question  from Joan Cowderoy on the  future of education, asked at  the November 5 All Candidates  Meeting, Fuller said that she  would like to see students working to the top of their ability.  "They should have a variety  of experiences to choose from.  We are in a technological age,  but we are human beings, not  machines," she said. "I am very  concerned with computers in  the classroom because there has  been no real discussion in the  school district oh how to implement   computer   programs.  "I'm not afraid of machines,  but I am concerned that the  schools are turning out mindless  people who can punch buttons  without a thought in their  heads," she continued.

A possible  ^compromise is the open boundary solution, he said, although  'he feels that a referendum is the  only way that hostilities will be  laid to rest and a solution reached.  The lack of capital funds to  complete school building and to  do major repairs in the district is  of serious concern to Mewhort.  He says that he would press for  the Halfmoon Bay school project to go ahead as soon as  possible; the land has been in  the hands of the school district  for some five years but capital  funds are needed to do the  building.  "I think Halfmoon Bay  school should be the number  one capital priority," Mewhort  said. "It's basically a one room  school with portables for the  overflow.

Not knowing if children are  getting the best education possible is intolerable, states  Vaughan, who would also ask  that they learn "the values that  our society considers appropriate. A school trustee is  just that, one in whom we entrust our most precious legacy,  our children."  Vaughan addressed this problem at the all-candidates  meeting.  "We want to put trust back  into the school system," she  said. "A lot of people have lost  faith in the system. There's so  much good, but one rotten apple spoils everything. The safety  of our children is the bottom  line. We want teachers to have  the same moral code as most of  us.  "I would like to see teachers  trusted again, and the only way  to get that to happen is to work,  not from the outside, but from  the inside," she continued.

"The support they require is  a school board that puts  children first, and works to see  that education is the priority,  not politics," she states.

But the village council, which  recently purchased the property,  considered ideal for a parking  lot to adjoin the facility, is not  sure exactly what it wants to  build on the site and at its  November 6 meeting questioned  the chamber's actions.  "I'm beginning to get the  feeling that the tail is wagging  the dog," Alderman Ken Short  said. "I think council should be  taking the lead here."  In a letter from the chamber,  the launching ramp is described  as urgently needed in order to  facilitate visitors during Expo  86.  Alderman Graham Craig said  he failed to see the urgency or  how the project would tie in  with Expo 86.  "I can't imagine the average  visitor coming up here to use a  boat ramp," he said.  Short said council would  have to decide what it wanted  on the site. While a boat ramp  might be appropriate, he said, a  breakwater is another possibility, or both.  Council agreed to send a  representative to the chamber's  committee meeting.

Report cards are now out at  Breakwater offends  Wood     Bay     residents  I discovered November 7 a new  addition to the Scantech salmon  farm - a log boom breakwater  enclosing it on three sides.

However now in place, he  said, it completely spans one  neighbour's foreshore and goes  half-way across Richardson's.  "Anyone who says this is fine  for a residential area is crazy,"  Richardson said.  Scantech's spokespeople were  off the coast and not available  tion that the breakwater would for comment at press time.  Moorage at wharf  Moorage space is available  for commercial vessels at the  government floats in Gibsons,  Alderman Norm Peterson told  council, November 5.  Although the government  wharf floats are currently full  with a mix of commercial and  pleasure crafts, preference will  be given there to any incoming  fishing boats. Pleasure boats  could secure moorage at Gib  sons Marina or Smitty's.  Peterson suggested the openings be publicized in fishermen's  trade newspapers.  "Getting some of them back  here would certainly help the  economy of the town," he said.  He also pointed out that two  ways in Gibsons, at Hyack  Marina and Hill's Machine  Shop, offer fishermen the  chance to make their own  repairs to their vessels.  The 18% RRSP.

HOSPITAL AUXILIARY  The Pender Harbour branch  of the Auxiliary to St. Mary's  Hospital will hold its regular  monthly meeting at St.  Andrew's Hall on Wednesday,  November 13 at 1:30 p.m. New  members are always very  welcome, so if you've been  thinking about joining these  ladies in their valuable work,  why not come out on Wednesday?  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  Had an interesting drive into  Sechelt on Wednesday by way  of Redrooffs Road. First of all I  had to slow down to let a very  regal looking deer cross the  road. Further along the road I  came across the Halfmoon Bay  Volunteer Fire Department  fellows saving a house from catching on fire by dousing a good  going chimney fire. Moral: get  your chimney cleaned regularly  - the next chimney fire may be  yours.  Then there was the usual  "every   second   Wednesday"  catastrophe. The good citizens  of the area are trying their utmost to do as they are told.  They  faithfully  tie  up  their  newspapers   in   bundles,   tote  them to the foot of the driveway  and leave them there, together  with bags of flattened tin cans  and empty bottles.  But who  bothers about them? Nobody.  They are just left to lie there.  Question: Why are we putting  up with this? I guess that the  decision-makers will not admit  that on this occasion a wrong  judgement was made. It could  still be rectified by getting us  back to the routine of weekly  garbage pickup for which we  pay. Try some other scheme for  the recycling idea, which all of  us agree is a good concept if carried out properly. Let's get rid  of this "Try-out" period right  now.  A GOOD PUB NIGHT  Those who attended the  Welcome Beach Community  Association Pub Night at the  hall last week had a most enjoyable evening of singing and  dancing. It was a special occasion for Marg Carpenter of the  Halfmoon Hams as the gang  gathered together to wish her a  happy birthday. The next function at the hall will be on Saturday, November 16 so mark this  on your calander. This will be  the annual "Little Reno" fun  night to which all members and  friends are cordially invited.  Time is 7:30.  READERS & WRITERS  Folks who like to read or  write are welcome to come to  the Arts Centre this Tuesday to  hear poet John Pass talk on the  subject of poetry and how  trends have changed. There is  no admission charge and you  don't have to be a member of  the Suncoast Writers' Forge to  attend. 7:30 p.m. is the time,  date, Tuesday, November 12.  GOOD LUCK JOHN  Hope there is enough space  allowed in my column for a little personal comment and good  wish. Would like to wish my  good publisher and boss John  Burnside success in his bid-for  Mayor of Gibsons. Can't think  of a more suitable and qualified  candidate for this position.

EXPO 86 ��� it conjures up images of breathtaking  pavilions and plazas, a global celebration of new  technology. And for the first time in history, British Columbia  ' is at the centre of it all.  This has created a unique challenge for the B.C.  Pavilion ��� host of this major event. Because unlike other  pavilions at Expo 86, we're at home. Many of our estimated 3.7  million visitors will be British Columbians while many,  many others will be newcomers. Our challenge is to create a  B.C. showcase that will thrill and inspire everyone.  That's why we're taking the discovery approach with our  exhibits ��� presenting the landscapes and innovations of  B.C. in a new and fresh way. So that British Columbians will  marvel at the province they thought they knew, and  visitors will want to know it better.  ON THE ROAD TO DISCOVERY A visit to our  main Discovery B.C. Pavilion begins with a gentle intro-  duction ��� the.'Walk In The Forest,' a quiet path winding past  rows of 12 metre Douglas Firs to the pavilion entrance. Inside,  3 metre carved figures spread their arms in welcome, while  skylights illuminate a waterfall and the forest nearby. These  are images of British Columbia ��� bright, airy and natural.  But the real thrill lies in our 520-seat Showscan Theatre  beyond, lb show you the B.C. you've never seen before,  we enlisted a Genie Award winning producer to film 16  minutes of images from across the province. Again, the  everyday scenes of British Columbia are presented in an  astonishingly new light ��� through the high-resolution  film technique of Showscan. And we're showing it in a theatre  that will recreate sights and sounds like never before ���  with a screen 20 metres wide and six audio speakers located  throughout the theatre.  OUR INNOVATIVE SPIRIT. That's for openers.  An escalator ride away are the Trees of Discovery ��� four  exhibit towers stretching from the floor of the main hall to the  glass-covered ceiling 28 metres above. Among these is an  underwater simulator featuring a dramatic illustration of  B.CIs emerging submersible industry. Other towers  portray other discoveries ��� on land, sea and in the air ��� and  show how B.C.'s modern technology has developed from  our spirit of innovation.  Similarly, our Regional Marketplace is an invitation to  discover the landscapes and people of the province.  Visitors here will literally stroll through British Columbia,  discovering attractions, foods and diverse landscapes  from each region along the way. And we've got a full slate of  regional entertainment at a bandstand nearby.  In short, Discovery B.C. is more than a showcase. It's a  voyage of discovery that will thrill  all visitors from all places.  Including British Columbians.  Next Month: Challenge B.C.

However,  I've just had an experience  that has increased my respect  even further.  ��� It started when Steve Sleep,  ^Community 10's Program  Manager, asked me to help out  on one of his projects. He  wasted no time getting right to  the point. "Brad, how would  you like to put on a mike and  go into a burning house with  the fire department?"  An old house on Franklin  Road   that   was   slated   for  demolition had been offered  to the Gibsons Volunteer Fire  Department (GVFD) to burn  down.    Fire   departments  welcome  these  opportunities  because   they   give   their  firefighters valuable practice.  ���Steve was involved because he  Iwas   video   taping   a   Crime  Stoppers   segment   on   arson  and at the same time putting  together  a   documentary   on  ;our   volunteer   fire   depart-  ���ments.  } Community 10 TV cameras  would be there taping the burning, but could not be placed  iinside the house. So, to capture as much of the event as  [possible, Steve came up with  [the idea of having someone  ?-me - describe what it was like  ���to be inside.  I Caught up in Steve's enthusiasm, I agreed without  thinking much about it.  '��� On a cold Monday night in  late October, I began to get an  tinkling of what I was in for  :\vhen the entire GVFD showed  jup at the old house. They were  jtate: They had just answered a  liaise alarm at Langdale School  ;-and wasted no time setting out  their hoses and preparing for  the fire.  " Clay Carby, a lieutenant  with the GVFD was to be my  guide. While we did a quick interview in the kitchen, hoses  wet down the surrounding  trees and the fire was set. Out-  ��j.d��, Clay quickly suited me  up and Steve taped a  microphone inside,my mask.,  jtlay took special care to explain the breathing apparatus  I'd be using.  The house, which just  minutes ago had sat cold and  empty was now crackling and  popping. I was amazed the fire  could get going so quickly.  : The scene was cast in an  eerie glow from the flickering  light of the flames leaping  from the living room windows. Fire hoses were underfoot everywhere, leading from  hydrants to pumper trucks and  spreading out into the front  and back yards. Firemen,  equipped as I was, stood by.  Clay and I were now in the  front yard, about fifteen feet  from the porch and ready to  go. Finally, the reality of what  I was about to do began sinking in. But, before I could  dwell on it, Clay said,"O.K.,  it's time to move," and led me  up the porch steps.  Like an idiot, I began walking up those steps as I would  walk up my own at home.  Suddenly the flames coming  from the living room windows  shot within inches of my  helmet. I uttered a four letter  expletive and ducked.  I apologized into the  microphone    and    followed  Clay to the front door. Looking into the house, I was surprised to see the entire floor  was on fire. A fireman behind  us put it out with a blast of  water from his hose. Clay  shouted to me to kep low by  going on hands and knees and  motioned me into the house.  This time my expletive was a  surprised "ouch" as I scorched my knees on the smoldering  floor.  Inside, the entire far wall  and part of the ceiling and  floor was on fire. The roar was  deafening even inside my  helmet. Talk inside the face  masks was almost impossible,  but I could just make out what  Clay was shouting. Most of  our communication was done  with hand signals. Clay motioned me to stand up. I did  and instantly understood what  he was showing me: Even  behind the special asbestos  suits, the heat above floor  level is tremendous. As Clay  had explained earlier, the heat  inside a burning house can  reach 1200 degrees Farenheit.  Compare that to what your  oven at home can do.  During all this, I've been  doing my best to keep a running description going of what  I'm experiencing. Afterwards,  we found out that because of  the air pressure coming into  the face mask, only half of  what I said came through. But  Steve liked its eerie effects and  intends to use it in his  documentary.  Clay led me into a bedroom.  There was no fire there, but so  much smoke had come in the  Book review  Stories of  prisoners of war  H.C. Mooney  In The Clutch Of Circumstance Cappis Press, Victoria, B.C.

In the 285 pages of text with  photos the tellers of the stories  in their own language tell of the  dangers, of the pathos, of the  will to survive that made their  very existence bearable.  It is not the easiest thing to be  a survivor but these people did  it with a special tenacity.

He  showed me how they explore  the rooms of burning houses  in search of people. By  scooting along on his rear end  with his feet kicking out in  front of him, he circled the  room in a counter clockwise  direction until he had come  back to the door. He explained  that it is very confusing in a  strange house filled with furniture and easy to get  disoriented.,  It was a relief to get back  outside and breathe normally  again. I gladly gave back my  borrowed equipment so that  other firemen could get on  with their practice.  What are the strongest impressions I'm left with? A vision of an entire wall consumed in flames. The sound of its  roaring, as if it was alive and  intent on devouring  everything. And what I said  earlier, an even deeper respect  for our volunteer fire fighters.  I was in a controlled fire.  But now I think I have a good  idea what the real thing would  be like. I hope I.never find  out.

We are asked in many  districts to come in and work  more and more on a volunteer  basis. There have been many  concerns raised about the use of  volunteers taking the place of  paid staff.  The act of volunteering,  historically, can be viewed as a  form of community service one  is able to give without any  return except for the satisfaction one receives from doing so.  Volunteering has become an important and healthy aspect of  our social system. Volunteers  have always been an important  aspect of school life, particularly at the elementary level.  Teachers and staff support  the involvement of parents and  the public in the schools. Such  involvement should be meaningful and provide parents a  role in the education of their  children, a role that recognizes  them as the partners that they  are in the educational life of  their children. This should involve not only individual discussions around the specific needs  of a particular child with his or  her parent/guardian, but also  the ongoing involvement of  parents in the curricular and  policy decisions made at the  school level. Additionally,  volunteers reflect the varied  social aspects of any neighbourhood and have; special talents or  erests that rnay be of particular interest to students and  teachers. As such, volunteers  become a valued addition to the  co-curricular and extracurricular activities of the  school.  As parents, we feel frustrated  when classes become larger and  larger and staff disappears at an  alarming rate. The urge to go in  and take up the slack becomes  greater as the need becomes  more urgent. We view our role  as a temporary measure. As  soon as funding is restored we  will retreat.  Unfortunately, this will not  solve the crisis. Most importantly we are not trained to take the  place of a professional and we  could do far more damage to  Police  of the  GIBSONS RCMP  ��� The theft of a 22Vi' Fiber-  form white boat was reported to  police on November 4 by the  owner, a Grandview Road resident. The boat was moored in  the Gibsons area when stolen.  The boat was later recovered  moored a the Gramma's Pub  wharf. The assistance of  members of the public who  might have witnessed the theft  would be appreciated by police.  Four impaired drivers were  apprehended last week in Gibsons and early in the morning of  November 2, a Gibsons man  was stopped by police on South  Fletcher Road as a result of  routine patrol.  A Sechelt resident was apprehended on November 3 after  he was observed driving erratically. The man was stopped  on Highway 101 near Park  Road. A Roberts Creek resident  was also apprehended on  November 3 as a result of erratic driving. Police checked  him on Gower Point Road. A  Vancouver resident was arrested  on Highway 101 in upper Gibsons on November 7 as a result  of erratic driving.  A Powell River woman was  injured when she lost control of  her vehicle and struck a tree at  the S-bend on North Road early  in the afternoon of November  6. The woman, whose name  could   not   be   released   until  the system than the results that  we so earnestly strive to achieve.  Many parents start the volunteer program sincerely committing   themselves   to   a  certain  number of set hours and set  times that they will be available.  As  we,  who are parents all  know, household and families  do not run on a nine to five  basis as a business does. Crisis  arise that are not planned and  we are forced to deal with them  on an emergency basis. The first  item  that  is  dropped  in our  schedule is, understandably, the  volunteer program leaving the  school with a program and no  one to fulfill the duties.  "As long as we can get  something for nothing, why  should we pay for it?" This is  an old saying that is as true today as when it was first uttered.  The current crisis in education  will not be solved by, we as  parents picking up the slack,  until things get better. The reality of the situation is such that  the more volunteer work that is  performed the less likely the  levels of service will be restored.  We will be expected to help  more and more and we will be  expected to pay more and more  for the same service that our  taxes are being increased to  cover. Why should we pay for a  service and then be expected to  also perform that service?  Don't be fooled into believing  that you will solve the problem  with volunteers! One of the  ways that we can help is by using our energy making sure that  the service that we payed for  already is provided at the level  that is needed to maintain a  quality education for our  children. We can fight for the  service to be restored to the level  that is required. We can fight  for the funding and W can fight  for the commission that is needed to explore all the avenues of  public education, to ascertain  whether or not the level of service now being provided is adequate, or whether there are any  areas that need to be improved. ���  Then and only then will we be  able to see the highest quality  education being offered to our  children at the level that is  essential.  news  week  relatives were notified, suffered  extensive injuries and is presently at St. Mary's Hospital.  A resident of Tantalus Apartments reported that the front  tires of his vehicle had been  slashed while parked in the  apartment's parking lot between 7-10 p.m., on November  1. Total cost of damage is  estimated at $144. Police are  still investigating.  A hit and run incident was  reported to police on November  3. A car parked at the bottom  of Hillcrest Road was struck by  an unknown vehicle causing  damages to a quarter panel on  the driver's side.  SECHELT RCMP  As a result of a motor vehicle  accident which took place on  November 4 on Highway 101  and Leek Road, an adult male is  facing charges of impaired driving. Two vehicles were involved  and no injuries were sustained.  Chatelech   High   School  reported a break-in into a trailer  housing the alternate school. A  Yashica MS 2 camera and food  stuff were taken. On November  5, the Sunshine Coast Building  Supplies reported a break and  entry into their premises.

pieces. The abstract approach
to the subject and choice of colours underlie the true meaning
of the work. The fire and blood
only becomes obvious after the
viewer has had a chance to
study the paintings.
People in the arts have always
dealt with subjects that have
proven to be unpopular or that
the viewing public finds to be
uncomfortable. This is the mark
of good art, the ability to capture a feeling or emotion, and to
present it.
,'■■; My  main   criticism  of  the
.show is too much work.for the
'space. The five and dime store
4i ^mentality of jamming the walls
took control.
For the ones who will want to
see, Swartz has engaged them to
look beyond the subtle colours
and images.
For the others, it's all one big
blur; if it doesn't match the
drapes, forget it!
It's a strong show, one of the
better ones to come to the Sunshine Coast.
The show is in its last week at

Dec. 10th - General Meeting (Elections)
by Peter Trower
Back at Cleveland Park,
Yvonne and 1 find a spot on the
hot, crowded hill above the field
and settle in to watch the bird
people alight. Soon, the wind
dummies come circling in and
following them, the first competitors. While in the air, the
pilots zip themselves into coc-
coons resembling sleeping bags.
Hanging from their harnesses in
these cloth envelopes (worn
primarily to cut down air
resistance) they resemble
nothing so much as giant flying
bugs. As they approach
touchdown, the pilots upzip the
bags and free their legs. This
manoeuvre is known in hang-
gliderese as "lowering the landing gear."
The pilots invariably make
their landing approaches from
the west, swooping in over
trees, rooftops and telephone
wires. The idea is to come in as
low as possible, just clearing the
edge of the raised field and
skimming on a cushion of
ground air towards the
whitewash target. Some of the
approaches are eccentric.
Several pilots barely miss the
baseball backstop in the upper
corner of the field. Only a couple of the pilots actually hit the
bull's eye but most of them
manage to reach the outer rim
of the circle. Failure to hit the
field at all results in disqualification and two unlucky flyers suffer this fate, coming in too low
and stranding themselves on the

The next day, my brain is so
cluttered with images, I can
barely think. Yvonne goes out
to interview a couple of local
pilots. I stay home and scribble
down some notes. Later, she
collects me. We return to
Cleveland Park and talk with a
young flyer from Burnaby who
has just returned from a hang
gliding Meet in Austria. Apart
from this brief conversation, the
scenario is much the same as
yesterday - the pilots slide down
from the sky like defecting
angels - the daredevil stunt
flyers cartwheel smokily
through the hot afternoon
heights. One of them breaks a
harness cord during a tricky
turn but manages to return to
earth, safely. Apart from this
near mishap, nothing too
momentous takes place on this
third day of the Meet.
On the final day, Yvonne and
I are not planning to go to the
park until. late afternoon, to
watch the wind-up. Then Lock
Mitchell calls. He is going to be
one of the officials at the landing and if we want to come
along, he'll explain anything we
need to know. Also, he says
there is to be an event called
"Open Window" that we
shouldn't miss. We head off into the morning heat without
further ado.
Things at Cleveland Park are
starting to get down to the
crunch for the glider pilots. All
but the top contenders have
already been eliminated. Only a
sky-crazy few are left. This
time, Yvonne and I sit at the
east end of the field where a
non-competing pilot is announcing the events. Soon, Lock
Mitchell joins us and we discuss
the whys and wherefores of his
favourite sport. He tells us
about blue thermals that occur
only in cloudless skies and can
loft a glider halfway up to

Nikki Weber, who is well
known on the coast for her
musical productions featuring
vocal groups is working on
plans to have a big choir of
elementary school children
hopefully ready for presentation
at Expo. This would include
children from the whole peninsula.
Realising the difficulties of
transportation for practices,
Nikki is hoping that music
teachers in the elementary
schools will be willing to work
with their pupils on the selected
songs with the possibility of all
the groups getting together
about once a month for practices. She is already at work on
songs about the Sunshine
This is a very exciting concept, which , with the cooperation of teachers and pupils
could help promote this area.
What better ambassadors than

In preparation for appearance in the big city the choir
would be presented for local enjoyment.

very much in the planning stage.
In order to get things underway
as soon as possible Nikki would
like to hear from those interested and she can be reached

We both enjoy the cozy atmosphere where small areas  of the dining room are sequestered by varying levels  and partitions.  We were dining late and  much to our disappointment  our two favourite appetizers  had been sold out. Oysters  Rockefeller baked in the half  shell with spinach and'  hollondaise, and Mushroom  Caps stuffed with crab and  topped with hollandaise. Instead we shared a serving of  Galamaris Fritas since I love  squid and am a great fan of  Greek food. Besides these  three dishes the Wharf offers  a surprisingly varied selection  of appetizers including  nachos and smoked B.C.  salmon to the ever present  Caesar salad.  We then skimmed the wine  list and were ever so tempted  by the selection of reds but  decided against for fear of  being "Counter Attacked".  The offering of white wines  contained a good international selection from  $8.75-516.75 with four  choices under $10. The reds  contained the standard selections ranging in price from  $10.30-$ 19.  Our   main  courses  were  00446  served with our choice of  soup or salad. My friend  chose the soup of the day,  Cream of Cauliflower which  was tastefully presented and  reportedly had a perfect  smooth texture. I chose the  salad with house dressing, a  creamy vinegrette, very  good, and I would swear  flavoured with dill  Entrees at the Wharf will  see you through most anything your palet desires with  a wonderful seafood selection. My friend could not  resist the chef's personal  specialty, the Rack of Lamb,  which by the way, he will only prepare medium rare and  can simply not bear to defile  his lamb by going to the max  (well done), so don't ask. It  was by all accounts "one of  the best I've had, but I can't  distinguish the sauce!" My  choice was the Chicken  Amereto, sauteed with  mushrooms and almonds,  flamed in ameretto and  smothered in veloute. All I  can say is...it was relaxing, (it  was that good).  Our bill for the evening  was a moderate $48 which  included two liquers after  dinner as we lingered over  our coffee. For a semi-  formal and long relaxing  evening, the Wharf should  be one of your top considerations.  ^  V.-Visa;   M.C.-Master Card;  A.E.-American Express;  E.R.-En Route  A VERAGE MEAL PRICES QUOTED DO NOT  INCLUDE LIQUOR PURCHASES.

The Sunshine Coast  Central American Support  committee has been able to  book a six piece Nicaraguan  band, "Igni Tawanka", which  is on a tour sponsored by Cana-  dian University Service  Overseas (C.U.S.O.) and Tools  for Peace, and word is out that  these musicians are hot!  While I was in Nicaragua I  met and played with a group of  musicians in a small town called  Masaya in the foothills above  Managua. I travelled to Masaya  wondering what the music scene  in this small country could be  like and during a Sunday jam  session this gringo played with  Brilliant  comic  film  A brilliant comedy, the 1973  Italian film, Bread and  Chocolate, received rave  reviews at film festivals around  the world.  Nino Manfredi gives a  memorable performance as an  Italian waiter in German-  speaking Switzerland, pathetically out of place yet forced  to remain, out of economic  necessity.  The. film blends farce with  social concerns; it is an indictment of the conditions of  Italian guest-workers living in  Switzerland. Throughout the  film, the surface cleanliness of  Switzerland is contrasted to the  darker reality underneath its  civilized surface.  It's a wonderful film and if  you only see one film this year  you can't lose with this one.

While North  American charts are heavy with  self indulgent lamentations of  teenage love and life in the  meaningless "fast lane", the  "New Song" movement of  Latin America speaks of the  realities of daily life and the  hopes and struggles of the people in establishing ideals free  from North American domination.   .  Canada has much to learn  from the excitement of artists  from a very small country  discovering their own music and  exploring their own artistic  identity rather than plugging into (or copying) the decadent  rock video mega-promotions  that emanate from Hollywood  offering little more than teen sex  and violence.  The performance is billed as a'  concert/dance with comfortable  seating for those who wish to;  enjoy the music and a dance  area for those who will be  unable to sit still.  The evening starts at 7 p.m.  with a Central American meal  for $3.50 and children are invited. There will be a pinata and  the musicians will be introduced  and enticed to play for the kids.  The concert/dance begins ait  9 p.m. and will be licensed'and  those who wish' to stay must  have a ticket.

This is a group of ex-National  Hockey Leaguers under the  leadership of Pat Stapleton who  are travelling all across Canada  teaching hockey fundamentals  to minor leaguers. Stapleton  spent a number of years in  Europe and North America studying the problem and a five  point program of teaching fundamentals was developed.  The first program consists of  66 different balance and skating  drills which when mastered lead  to the other fundamentals in  shooting, passing, teamplay and  other aspects of the game including body contact.  Canadian Tire and Molson  Breweries are the two major  sponsors for this group and  allow them to do their work  with relatively little cost to the  local minor hockey organizations. From a very tentative  beginning four years ago, they  now are scheduled into 1600 different organizations in Canada  this winter. Apparently they are  being well received and we were  fortunate to get them.  The hockey season is in full  swing. Tentative teams have,  been picked and after assessing  the various strengths, the teams  will hopefully be balanced by  the end of November. A  number of games were played  this past week and the top point  getters in the following divisions  were as follows:  Atoms: Glenn Allen, Dean  Stockwell, Graham Ruck, Chad  Pockrant,   Jason  Cochet and  Rudi Brackett.  PeeWees: Danny Tetzloff,  Ken Fitchner, Aaron Joe, Clay  Munson, Darren Brackett,  Owen Joe, Brian Dusenbury,  Eric Mueller-Thode, and David  Paetkau.  Bantams: Darren Pollock,  Doug Hamilton and Robbie  Stockwell.  The teams have some new  names this year, reflecting  multiple sponsorships and these  will be recognized on a regular  basis during the year.

Jamie Gill, who has excelled  for the Gibsons Rugby Club for  the past five years, is at present,  our only resident player  selected. At second row position, Jamie, (and his older  brother Grant) has supplied  Gibsons with a quality style of  play in both set scrums and  lineout play. Jamie is actively  involved in the club and always  works to better his ability and  definitely deserves the chance to  play with the best.  The two other gentlemen  selected are break-forward Torrr'  Kennedy and hooker Shawn  Wolanski both of whom are  presently residing in Vancouver  and playing with the Scribes.  Tom Kennedy, a stocky  breed, plays aggressively and  well in the VRU. He is a defensive player with the talent to  burst through a pack; this has  made the Union selectors sit up  and take notice. ���  Front  row  hooker,   Shawn  Wolanski, has the kind !of a|  titude that any team would b^  proud of.

Ex-head   of  physical education at  Elphinstone Secondary, Gary  Gray, was responsible back in  1972 for introducing rugby to  the coast. He coached all three  of the selected locals and must  feel proud to see the boys get  the opportunity to play for the  VRU Under-23 side. Game  results will be given in next  week's paper.

Prosecutor Tony Tobin  pressed for a closed court.  Although this was argued by  defence counsel William Smart,  Judge Shirley Giroday ruled the  court closed to all but Mar-  chant's parents, son and wife,  and a parent of each complainant during the time in which  her testimony is being given.  The   hearing   continued   on  Wednesday, but has now been  put over until January 20.

Last week's winner was  Jean Gray, RR 1, Sechelt, who correctly located the mail boxes at  the corner of Brooks Road and the Highway, Halfmoon Bay.  Following is a review of the  major issues discussed at the  Sechelt Council's Planning  Committee meeting of October  28, together with it's recommendations.  BONDING OF MUNICIPAL  CONTRACTS  The meeting opened with a  discussion of the difficulty local  contractors have been having in  meeting the bonding requirements for municipal  works. As explained by Alderman Forman, who owns Peninsula Insurance Agencies and is  therefore knowledgeable in the  industry, insurance companies  have stopped issuing bonds to  smaller contractors because of  the number of bankruptcies that  have occured as a result of the  real estate crash a few years  ago. This has meant that they  now have to come up with cash  (usually done through bank  loans) to cover the bond  amounts.  Contractors are first faced  with a $10,000 bid bond requirement to get the job. They  then must post a bond (or come  up with cash) for 50 or up to  100 per cent of the cost of the  job.

Finally there is a requirement  for a 20 per cent maintenance  bond to insure that if something  goes wrong after the job is completed, it can be fixed without  liability to the village.  In an effort to reduce the  hardship this situation has  created for local contractors,  but still protect the village, the  committee recommended that  the maintenance bond requirement be reduced to ten per cent,  but that the bid and performance bond requirements remain the same. Alderman Short  also recommended that the  village talk to Gibsons Council  and the SCRD to see how they  are handling the situation.  EXPO '86 LEGACY FUND  There will be made available  30 million dollars from the 649  Lottery for community development, cultural centres and  parks. It was agreed that Village  Administrator Malcolm Shanks  and Alderman Ken Short,  whose responsiblity includes  parks, would confer on what  projects the village could use  and draw up the* necessary application.  DEVELOPMENT PERMIT  The village has been asked to  approve a development permit  for a one and a half story, 2000  square foot building situated at  the corner of Teredo and Wharf  Roads which will be used for  commercial-1 purposes.  The committee will recommend to council that: the roof  be changed from a grey-green  enamelled aluminum to cedar  shakes; a sidewalk be installed  along Teredo Street; and that an  appropriate colour be applied to  the stucco sides. Concern that  the pilings which have been  driven into the boggy soil may  not be resting on solid ground  was discussed, but this matter  will be dealt with in the building  permit process.  SECHELT SONG  Alderman Forman recommended to the committee that  council not spend the $1500 required to cut a 45 RPM record  of the Sechelt Song which council had been interested in promoting. It was, however,  recommended that an offer be  made  to  songwriter  Dorothy  Rheaume of Sechelt to officially  purchase   the   song   for   the  village.  PEACE COMMITTEE  GRANT  A grant request from the  Sunshine Coast Peace Committee to help in sending one  delegate and two observers to.  Toronto this November for a  convention of the Canadian  Peace Alliance was unanamous-  ly opposed by the committee.  It was noted by Alderman  Craig that "this should spring  from the people in the community." It was also pointed  out that council had already  spent its 1985 grant budget.  ARIPORT BUDGET -1986  Alderman Pressley stated that  in addition to the normal $2500  which is contributed each year  to the airport by both Gibsons  and Sechelt, the SCRD will also  be contributing $2500 in 1986.  She reported that the Airport  Committee is asking both councils and the SCRD to allow the  setting up of a capital fund  which will absorb any excess  funds from the $2500 contributions. The committee recommended that council approve  this accounting practice.  Cocaine a social problem  Cocaine is not new to the  Sunshine Coast, it has been well  embedded into this community  since the 70's, therefore giving  this area an established and  identified cocaine problem. The  groups that pushed for legalization of marihuana, will, no  doubt be pushing cocaine next.  Statistics in the U.S.A. indicate: 25 million have tried cocaine; nine million regular  users; three of four who use will  abuse.  Cocaine use is on the rise in  the USA: 1977 - 1.6 million;  1985 - nine million.  Cocaine ranks fifth when  compared with other buisnesses  in the U.S.A. 1. Exxon, 2.  General Motors, 3. Mobil Oil,  4. Ford Motors Company, 5.  Cocaine (50 billion per year).  Why is it so popular? Some  users and traffickers say: This is  the safe drug to do; makes you  feel so good, use it< at home*  next step at work, makes you  feel that you can do better.  Cocaine is referred to as nose  candy, snow, blow or cake. The  drug can be injected or sniffed  and is commonly carried in  small paper decks. There is no  physical dependence on the  drug. The dependence is purely  mental. Cocaine gives the user a  stimulant effect. One gram of  cocaine at 20 per cent strength  will cost $200 on the Sunshine  Coast. The drug can be found  in varying strengths and is commonly sold in local drinking  establishments and residences.  In comparison: marihuana is  sold for $15 a gram; LSD is $10  a hit; heroin is $35 a cap; cocaine $200, $3000 per ounce,  $40,000 a pound.  Cocaine is visible and readily  available in the community. The  drug is not being used by the  elite group as one would think  but has reached the everyday  worker, in all occupations.  Some of this group are users,  traffickers, importers.  As a result of cocaine abuse  in the community, jobs,  business', marriages and lives  are being threatened. When you  look at some members of the  community, think, are they living beyond their means or are  they living below their means?  You'll see that some are living  , well below their means, is this a  result of poor money management or drug abuse? Who can  afford cocaine at $200 a gram  perhaps leading to $20O-$50O  weekend habit?  The members of the local  detachment have over the past  several years documented  known users, traffickers, importers and associates. In an effort to. control the use of cocaine the police conduct street  checks, bar checks and execute  search  warrants.  Three years  ago a Drug Undercover  Operator was brought into the  community. As a result 14  charges were laid of Trafficking  in a Narcotic. This type qf  operation is costly and merely  drives the traffickers and users  underground, it does not stop  the problem.  Other police intelligence  reveals that on several occasions  younger members of the comT  munity have been observed doing lines of cocaine in their  vehicles while taking a break  from a local, dance. As in the  60's you heard of 'pot parties';  now there are 'cocaine parties'.  At a recent house party  wherein the majority of youths  were high school students cocaine was being cut in the  bathroom. y>  This article is not to alarrn  you but to make you aware of  the use of cocaine and its effects  in the community. The coir  operation between members of  the community and the police if  essential in controlling cocaine;  and drug abuse in this com-;  munity. :;;  Jack MARSDEN  For Area C  r  ��� MISC SERVICES ���  MERIT CABINETS  The best for less  Save up to 30%  on your MERIT CABINETS  until November 30th  P.R.

Cameron Fraser, Pastor  885-7488  ."*&     ,^~     &  Ferries responses frustra  The B.C. Ferry Corporation  has been the source of much  complaint and controversy on  the Sunshine Coast for the last  several years, and the problems  continue, as can be seen by  developments at both Gibsons  Council and the Regional  District board meetings  A letter from A.L. Collier, at  the Office of the President and  Chief Executive Officer of the  B.C. Ferry Corporation was  received   by   Gibsons  Replying to a letter from  council which complained  about the long line ups of this  summer's traffic and requested  a more amenable timetable, the  latest letter says, "I am sure you  realize B.C. Ferry Corporation  has done everything possible to  contain the ferry traffic within  the boundaries of their terminal," and cites the increased  size of the parking lot.  The solution which the cor  poration proffers in the letter is  "widening of the highway  which is out-with (sic) the  jurisdiction of the Ferry Corporation."  The Mayor and members of  council were cynical about this  solution, and unanimously expressed the opinion that the  writer of the letter must not  have been to the coast recently  and had no idea of conditions in  this area.  "He doesn't know what the  highway is like," said Alderman  Bob Maxwell, "that traffic is a  great hazard to the public, and a  great inconvenience."  This observation was echoed  by other council members, who  feel that the solution to the problem is not widening the  highway to accommodate more  cars but a better ferry service.  "Such flexibility," said  Alderman John Burnside, "is  not beyond the reach of man's  ingenuity."  At the Thursday night  regional district board meeting  two letters concerning the ferries were received which again  raised the subject of scheduling  the lack of service.  The ' continuing frustration  which the board has felt over  the battle for a better schedule  was the reason for writing to  Minister of Transportation Alex  Fraser at the suggestion of Bill  Ritchie for Municipal Affairs.  The reply to that letter was also  received at Thursday's board  meeting, but it did nothing to'  alleviate the problems.  Fraser, speaking about Sunday overloads, and the board's  request for a scheduled late  night sailing on Sundays, or  Mondays of long weekends,  said that the ferry corporation  does not intend to schedule that  sailing, on a regular basis as "it  has been proven from past experience that the travelling  public delay their time of departure which can result in  overloads occurring on the extra  sailing and involve a further increase in costs by additional  crew overtime to clear the traffic."
