 ���.���'^-\v-^---^^-^i^���^"*���^���-vv/^ -*; ���yi<*~^��---.>v".Afc-w"^^  I  I  8  ' -  Independence Act moves through Parliament  by Dianne Evans  "We'll carve the figures on  the stick together," Minister of  Indian Affairs and Northern  Development David Crombie  told Sechelt Indian Band (SIB)  Chief Stan Dixon last week as  Bill C-93 received first and second readings in the House of  Commons, with the support of  all three parties. Its progress  - through local referendum - to  be held March 15 - to .Royal  Proclamation is not expected to  hit any snags.  The stick to which Crombie  refers is the traditional talking  stick held by the father figure  totem pole erected by the Band  in 1984, and left uncarved,  because, in Crombie's words,  "the Sechelt felt that they lacked achievements under their  own authority".  The Bill, which Crombie calls  a milestone in Canadian; history, will give the Sechelt people  all that they asked for from the  federal government, said Band.  The Sechelt Indian Band has always kept its sense of humour, despite the numerous delays in its push  towards self government. Here the 'Fathers of Confederation' are from left to right: Gordon Anderson,  Lloyd Jeffries, CM. Joe, Chief Stan Dixon, Ben Pierre, Warren Paull, Graham Allen.   -Evo Mareon photo  Financial   Advisor,   Gordon  . Anderson.  1    "The Band wanted us to get  'six^things - recognition of the  Band as a legal entity, the control of membership, the legal title to reserve land, the creation  rof a governmental unit, control  pf our capital funds and the  -transfer of funds in grant form,  government to government -and  ' we: got all six!*' Anderson told  ') the Coast News.  :; ���V;^e;:Bahd''will .-now have the  ��� powers it sought from the fed-  ���^;eral^;-government,  and mirror^  legislation; to'be passed by the  provincial government will igive  --the: Sechelt Indian^Government  District (SIGl^ Municipal pow-  e%|^d^^tiers Patent as it  doreMitn other municipalities in  :the province, but with m im-  . pbirtant difference.  |f fjWhat-is   enshrined  in;the  ); Sechtelt   legislation   is   the  cfiaracterofthe District Council  of the SIGD. Anderson explained-  "What is says, is that the  ��� council will always be Indian,  even if there should be 20,000  non-Indians living on Indian  land, the council will always be '  Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, BC  V8V 1X4  86.6  composed of the Chief and his  councillors. That's unique in the  country," he said.  The District Council will have  a Local Services Commission,  comprised of elected representatives of all residents on Indian  land and this commission will  act as an advisory body to the  Council. All residents will have  the right to vote on matters  which concern money, such as  taxation.  However, the legislation, also  allows the Band to withdraw all  its powers back under its federal  umbrella should the province at.  any time in the future enact  legislation which is detrimental  to the Band.  Crombie's emotional speech  to the House of Commons was  addressed later by Liberal party  Indian Affairs critic, Keith Pen--  ner who raised questions about  the legislation in relation to  other Indian groups across the  country who see the route to  self-government as being constitutional rather than legislative. Crombie defended his  Bill strongly, saying that it  should be accepted by the  House in the same spirit in  which the Sechelt people intend- -"  ed it, that is, as their solution to  their own problems. ;  !  NDP memoer* for Comox-; -*  Powell River, Ray Skelly, paid;  tribute, not only to Crombie for;  bringing the Bill forward, but to  all those who had worked towards what he called "a proud  day for the.

"Maybe I was too tough on them," he  said afterward. ���John Gleeson photo  the pool's deficit problem. But  council's intention, made public  the previous week, to consider  the benefits of a permanent  closure as well was, Labonte  said, unwarranted.  "I don't agree with all this  doom and gloom," he said.  Mayor Diane Strom assured  him that council was mainly  considering closing the pool for  the summer. Staff is also looking at the possibility of  eliminating low user periods,  she said, as a way of economizing*  The   pool   is   suffering   a  $13,000 deficit for 1985 in addition, to the $31,000 anticipated  deficit budgeted by last year's  council. In addition to paying  the $44,000 total deficit, Gibsons' taxpayers contributed  $15,000tothepoolthrough the  West Howe Sound Recreation  Commission. Areas E and F,  also in the commission, paid  $71,000 but substantially out of  the large industrial tax base of  Area F.  Area D contribution to the pool  may be an objective of  council's.  Similarly Sechelt Council, its  arena facing a $25,000 deficit,  has agreed to meet with the  district to discuss the district's  proposal for an arena assistance  commission similar to West  Howe Sound.  Regional district Secretary-  Treasurer, Larry Jardine, said  last week that we might see the  two municipalities fighting over  recreation tax rights to Area D.  A way of avoiding this, he  said, and perhaps the fairest  solution to the problem, would  be a district-wide Commission,  excluding Area A, at least in-  part, because it funds its own  pool.  "It wouldn't guarantee that  Gibsons would pay less than it  does now to the pool, but the  share would be equal to Areas B  through F and Sechelt."  Sechelt Mayor Joyce Kolibas  told the Coast News she was in  favour of a district-wide com  mission, provided it's set up  right. But attempts had failed in  the past, she said, because opposing parpchials "always came  back out of the woodwork."  :,;'; ���; SCRD Chapman Jim Gurney ,  *said j^seco^ fcwv.;  vthfe Secheljt^enar migfif 15e'the .,  kkbeginningi^f a Coast-wide approach.    ���  Both he and Jardine counted  relief for recreation as one of  the many benefits of district cooperation missed by Gibsons  and Sechelt. Gurney ascribed .  the resistance to a "steamboat  mentality, good for its own time  but no longer an advantage."  Larry Labonte told the Coast  News that the new council  might have been startled by the  r  size of the pool's deficit, caused  in part by increased wages for  pool staff. *  "But; the town isn't broke,  yet.

Enough of all that doom and  glOOm." V :;:- -V  Chatelech air under scrutiny  The problem with the air in  the mezzanine classrooms at  Chatelech Secondary School,  reported in the last issue of the  Coast News, is being addressed,  according to principal, June  Maynard.  A maintenance crew has been  at the school during this past  week, Maynard told the Coast  News, and vents have been installed in doors and walls to  enable the air to circulate more  readily.  The Workmen's Compensation Board was also at Chatelech last week, Maynard said,  and air quality checks were conducted.  "At no time has the mezzanine been a health hazard,"  Maynard continued. "The  WCB has given the air a clean  bill of health."  er WCB readings had  showed 1250 parts per million  of carbon monoxide, according  to the chairman of the parents'  advisory group in conversation  th the Coast News. Other  rooms also showed high readings, e.g. Room 112 -1073 parts  per million, Home Ec room  -952, staff room - 958. The  WCB norm, according to the  v ad  \vi  chairman, is about 650 parts per  million.  It was also pointed out that  the latest readings giving the  rooms a safer reading were  made after the rooms were thoroughly aired out and few students had used them during the  days prior to the readings.  The chairman of the parents'  advisory committee said parents  are still concerned about the  problem.  "Just after school started last  September we put it on the agenda at a meeting and found the  problems with the students to be  wide-spread. Many students  were complaining of headaches  but when they were sent to the  doctor nothing seemed to be  wrong but breathing carbon  monoxide is like experiencing a  mild form of retardation - and  brain cells are being affected.  "This is an emergency situation. You have to take action  when an emergency occurs.  "Our main concern is the  kids. We are proud of our  school and we want good things  to happen there, so what we say  is, fix it!" he added.  What is needed  to ensure  healthy air quality, in the mez  zanine classrooms is an independent air-conditioning  system but there is a problem  with finding the necessary funding, said the chairman.  Deduct  boat ramp  pledges  All pledges going to the  Sechelt and District Chamber of  Commerce boat ramp committee will be tax deductible, committee chairman Bob Bowles  confirmed last week.  So far about $7,000 has been  pledged against the $30,000 projected budget of the ramp,  which the committee would like  to see built at the foot of Wharf  Road, before Expo.  Bowles said he was encouraged to hear that pledges are tax  deductible.  "People will have a choice.  Either pay the federal government for the extra money you  make, or put it into the community."  The parents are well organized, with the volunteer services  of a lawyer, who is also a  parent, should legal action be  necessary, the chairman said.  Gibsons Chamber  There will be a general meeting of the Gibsons Chamber of  Commerce Wednesday, February 12 at 7 p.m. at the Omega  Restaurant. ;  Guest speakers will be Gibsons Mayor Diane Strom, town  planner Rob Buchan and Capilano College representative  April Struthers.  Those planning to attend are asked to contact the chamber  office at 886-2324.  Sechelt Library  The annual general meeting of the Sechelt Public Library  will be held on Tuesday, February 11, at 7:30 p.m. in Sechelt  Municipal Office.  Peace meeting  Tonight at the monthly meeting of the Sunshine Coast  Peace Committee, a report will be given to members and to  interested members of the public on the recent People's Inquiry into the Nanoose Bay Canadian Forces Maritime Experimental and Test Ranges. Iris Griffith, who attended, will  be presenting a brief on the Inquiry.  The meeting is at Roberts Creek Elementary School at 7:30  tonight.  The glorious spring-like weather of last week was perfect for these brand new lambs to test their legs and  nibble on some fresh green grass at their home near Gibsons. -Dianne Evans photo Coast News, February 10,1986  I.IIIIHUlilll  History made  More than a hundred years of history was turned back  last week in Ottawa when Bill C-93 received first and second readings in the House of Commons.  Ever since the first new settlers came to the West Coast  Indian lands and rights have been eroded away; true progress, developed and carried out by the people themselves,  has been impossible as long as the Indian Act kept them as  children in the Canadian family.  The Sechelt Indian Band has long chafed against the  cruel Act which deprived them of initiative and the  pleasures of real achievements, but the way forward has  been slow and filled with disappointment.  A people less persevering may easily have given up hope  but the Sechelts steadfastly believed that, one day, their  fight would be won.  Ever practical, the Sechelts decided that the way to start  their long journey towards full participation as Canadians  was through economic development and renewal, and that  the way to attain their goal was through legislation.  At last the Sechelts have seen the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development, David Crombie, speak  eloquently to the Parliament of Canada, urging all who sit  in that august body to accept Bill C-93, to give the Sechelts  what they want and have fought so hard to win.  Last Friday, all three parties gave their approval to the  Bill, and the Sechelts are on their way.  Now all that remains is an obligatory referendum and  what promises to be a quick passage through the Senate  and third reading.  Then Bill C-93 will receive Royal Proclamation and the  Sechelts will be the first band in the country to own its own  land, to control its own destiny, to stand as full partners in  the country they called their own long before the white  man first cast his eyes on the blue Pacific waters.  Is air a frill?  Restraint in education spending has been hard on  students, teachers and administrators alike, but we find it  difficult to imagine the rationale that prevents the proper  steps being taken to correct, once and for all, the problem  with unsatisfactory air in the classrooms of Chatelech  Secondary.  Does the Mininstry feel that healthy, pleasant air is a  luxury, like field trips and art classes, to be cut from the  budget?  Does the Administration of the district have a more important and pressing priority?  Sluggish students do not learn as well as they might, and  sluggish teachers find it hard to inspire the young with the  desire to learn.  This is an emergency. Let's treat it as such and act now.  5 YEARS AGO  Gibsons council passed resolutions Tuesday night to  request a start-up grant of $5,000 from the Ministry of  Municipal Affairs under the Downtown Revitalization  Plan.  Glen Kraus steps down after twelve years as Chief of  the Roberts Creek Volunteer Fire Department and Dennis Mulligan takes over the position.  The Sechelt Indian Salmon Enhancement program on  .   Sechelt Inlet received a setback last week when 3,000 of  their young Chinook salmon were believed stolen.  10 YEARS AGO  The SCRD has come out in favour of the Islands Trust  after five Regional Districts on the coast have indicated  they would like to see the Trust abolished. The Islands  Trust was established in 1974 to govern the Gulf Islands  in Georgia Strait and the islands in and around Howe  Sound. The basic principle of the Trust is to protect and  preserve the islands and to establish a community plan  for each.  20 YEARS AGO  An estimated 1100 people milled around in the Gibsons. Elementary School gymnasium at the Science  Fair. Flash bulbs popped, cameras whirred, telephones  rang and music from stereo equipment penetrated every  corner. The Fair was deemed a huge success.  Councillor Ben Lang detects affluence in Sechelt. He  has asked at least 22 times for someone to do the job of  gravelling the areas between sidewalks and reads to  make things neat. He has found casual labour hard to  come by.  30 YEARS AGO  Mr. J. Mayne states that the letters patent have been  issued and are effective February 1 for the incorporation of the Village of Sechelt. An election of Commissioners will be held April 21. Mr. J. Mayne has been appointed Returning Officer for the election.  40 YEARS AGO  Plans for a new High School in Gibsons and a new Elementary School at Roberts Creek, drawn by architect  H. Cullerne, were accepted for preliminary consideration.  The Gibsons and District Board of Trade demanded  an immediate survey of all roads, including the essential link from Port Mellon to Gibsons as stated in the letter to the Minister of Public Works. The letter outlined  the hazards of the road to human life.  The Sunshine  CO-PUBLISHERS  John Burnslde M.M. Vaughan  EDITORIAL  Editor, Dianne Evans  ADVERTISING  J.

SUBSCRIPTION RATES  Canada: 1 year $30; 6 months $18; Foreign: 1 year $35  A race for life  In the terrible days in Ottawa  after Dr. Charles Ball had  diagnosed runner Al Howie as  having a malignant brain  tumour and urged him to enter  Ottawa General Hospital as  soon as possible for further tests  and treatment, the runner  wandered around Ottawa in a  fog.  "I realized that this was the  life I loved. I wasn't interested  at that point in reconciling  myself for the hereafter. I just  couldn't go to hospital and take  treatments. I haunted the  bookstores of Ottawa and read  everything I could get my hands  on on the subject of cancer."  In one of his sessions in a  bookstore Howie picked up av  book called Recalled by Life by|  Tony ���Satillaro.   Satniaro^  himself a physician, recounted^  how he himself was suffering  from cancer and had undergone  radiation, chemo-therapy treatments and surgery without any  slowing in the rate at which the  disease was ravaging his body.  One day he picked up two  hitchhikers and one of them  suggested that he try a macrobiotic diet which he did out of  desperation.    According   to  Satillaro's book, the disease had  been successfully maintained in  remission since that time.  Howie packed the book away  in his belongings without much  hope and then re-started his run  to Montreal.  "It was possibly the stupidest  thing I could have done. I  realized it wasn't rational and  that I couldn't outrun my  troubles but I just couldn't  check myself into hospital. It  seemed like accepting the end."  At that point the attending  physician had held out little  hope of recovery and frankly  told Howie that he would be  lucky to see Christmas.  Back in Victoria was Gabe  Howie, the runner's teenage son  but Howie couldn't bring himself to write a letter which  would tell the terrible news.  In Montreal the runner ex  perienced   massive   muscular  atrophy.  "I got up one morning and  stretched and saw myself in the  bathroom mirror. The muscle  was gone entirely from my upper arms. There was just bone  with what looked like lumps of  flesh hanging under the bone."  Next it was his pectoral  muscles that were suddenly  wasted away, and finally his  runner's legs.  "When I was standing the  flesh on my legs sagged behind  the bone like a pair of loose  trousers," Howie recalls.  He phoned his friend Ken  Heatherington in Elphin, Ontario, near Perth, turned his  back on his cross-Canada  odyssey and began to address  " himself seriously to his ihacro-''  biotic diet.  "I was lucky. I had met  Wayne Diotte, a macro-biotic  counsellor during one of my  races in Ottawa and I had  several sessions with him to ensure that I knew what I was doing nutritionally. I was also  lucky in that Perth has one of  the best health food stores in the  country."  Howie took refuge for six  weeks in the town of Elphin,  devoting himself to the mastery  of macro-biotic cooking.  "Through this period I didn't  really have much hope," he  recalls. "My limbs were like  twigs and I was very weak. But  it seemed the only way I could  fight back."  The ever-lean Howie weighed  108 pounds at this point, down  from his normal running weight  of 138. It was in Elphin one  morning near the end of September that Howie first felt he  was not only going to survive  but to recover fully.  "The morning symptoms I  ' had been having for months  were suddenly not happening.  Though they came back on  many, many subsequent mornings."  Now, with hope reborn, he  could write to his son and tell  him what was happening.  Wayne Diotte, the macro-biotic  counsellor told him of the  White Spruce Farm outside of  Fernie, B.C. and it was to this  centre that Howie headed when  he left his friends the Heather-  ingtons.  "I spent two weeks living on  the farm and learning the  miracle of the macro-biotic  way. Then I went home to Gabe  in Victoria."  When he visited the Sunshine  Coast in January the ultra-  marathoner was back up to 135  pounds. He ran each day: to  Gibsons and back from Roberts  Creek and to Sechelt and back.  He had just recently begun to  sleep for long periods and was  planning a run from. Victoria tor  Ferme "to celebrate his recovery  and the macro-biotic way - accompanied this time by a motor  home supplied by the people of  White Spruce Farm.  "The statistics say that one in  three will die of cancer," says  Howie. "When I was a boy it  was one of eight. By the end of  this century it will be one of  two."  On April 26 Howie's plans  call for competing in a 100 km.  race which he wants to win in a  Canadian record; then on May  11 he will run in the National  Capital Marathon in Ottawa  and on May 24, 25 he will attempt to win the Sri Chinmoy  24-hour Endurance Run for the  sixth consecutive time.  "This year a world record for  the 24-hour run would underline the effectiveness of my  lifestyle changes."  He will also work with  Wayne Diotte the macro-biotic  counsellor when he is back in  the east and do some landscape  gardening'with his friend Ken  Heatherington..  'But if will be on the track that  the chtef difference will be  noted as the man who ran with  a beer in his hand with the sponsorship of breweries runs now  to celebrate life and a way of  eating without chemical additives.  We wish him success.  When You  Are Old  When you are old and grey and full of sleep,  And nodding by the fire, take down this book,  And slowly read, and dream of the soft look  Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;  How many loved your moments of glad grace,  And loved your beauty with love false or true,  But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,  And loved the sorrows of your changing face;  And bending down beside the glowing bars,  Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled  And paced upon the mountaines overhead  And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.  William Butler Yeats  Exposing social injustice  Barnes' ordeal is worthwhile  by Elizabeth Tansey  I am looking at my old, beat-  up copy of Black Like Me by  John Howard Griffin. He was a  white man who, driven by a  strong sense of social justice,  had his skin darkened with a  drug treatment and for five  weeks lived the ordeal of a black  man in the Deep South of the  United States.  In my youth I had a small experience of those cruel times. A  woman I knew worked on a National Film Board crew which  had gone to shoot documentary  footage in the Deep South. On  their return she said, "When we  crossed the border home, I kissed the earth."  Later I went with my little  boy to visit old friends in  Philadelphia. Returning, I  changed trains in New York and  had to walk, carrying my lug  gage, through a series of  coaches unable to find a seat.  At last, to my relief, I arrived in  a coach which had room for us.  It was an ancient, ramshackle  model, grimy and sooty, but  with plenty of empty seats. A  black family sat across from us,  staring in puzzlement. The man  helped stow my luggage on the  rack and we settled comfortably. Soon my little boy was  making friends with their little  boy and everybody smiled. But  not for long.  Presently the white conductor  came to take tickets. He was  outraged to see me sitting there.  Apparently I had broken some  law I was unaware of. He hustled us out and found a seat for  us in another coach, bright,  new, and sparkling clean. It  dawned that we were of the  master race. I felt guilty and  ashamed. I understood at last  why the Film Board woman had  kissed the earth of home.  The white man, John Howard Griffin was not forgiven for  his book Black Like Me. The  haters bombarded him with letters, hanged him in effigy,  frightened his children and  threatened to castrate him. He  and his parents were forced to  sell their old farm in Texas  where they lived and move far  west.  Now, a quarter century later,  Emery Barnes, New Democratic  Party MLA and a black man, is  matching, symbolically, John  Griffins' ordeal on behalf of  social justice. He is accepting  the challenge of the End  Legislated Poverty Coalition to  experience life on $350, the  monthly welfare allowance to  single unemployed young men.  As an MLA with a comfortable salary, Mr. Barnes can on  ly address the practical hardships of stretching low income  to meet high prices of food, clothing and lodging.  He cannot capture the true,  long term frame of mind, the  sense of degradation and hopelessness of the man trapped in  the experience. He can do it only like an actor cast in a tragic  play.  Is MLA Barnes' ordeal worth  while? I think yes. He is exposing social injustice to the glare  of publicity. He is displaying the  plight of able-bodied young  men, their lives rotting away in  frustration while government  money is squandered disastrously on the "moose pasture"  of Tumbler Ridge and other  dubious corporate ventures  launched headlong without  competent research and planning.

What really highlights these  accusations is that Tom Wat-  erland seemed to be one of the  more intelligent, committed  ministers of this current government.  If these were isolated incidents and confined to the  Cabinet, perhaps we could  shrug our shoulders and relegate these incidents to the:  "some are always rotten" barrel; but they aren't.  To allow the, entrepreneur ac-  cesss to, and influence over the  tax payers' money seems to be  the modus operandi of the Social Credit government. To that  end the government supports  those who attempt to legitimize  their particular concerns by  establishing societies and  associations.  These associations are heavily  financed through the tax base  and seem to have little difficulty  getting "scarce restraint  dollars", yet they favour special  interest groups, and. encourage  little or no community input.  It is not the intention of this  statement to pronounce, "j'accuse". Rather it is to focus  some light on what is becoming  a serious social problem within  this province; trust in our  elected officials, and those who  promote their dogma.  It is little wonder that the  populace treats with indifference much of what it reads  and hears from the political  forum when the material is  packaged and presented like  some kind of sugar coated  cereal with fancy logos, glossy  pictures and print, and about as  much economic nutrition as the  products it emulates.  I suggest that this is becoming  a real social problem because  the general public in this province is feeling the effect of an  economy lagging far behind  that of the remaining provinces.  People need to believe that  the economy will improve, and  that new industries being promoted by elected officials and  government funded societies  and commissions will be good  for the population as a whole,  and not just a select few who are  "in the know".  There is nothing wrong'with  the entrepreneurial spirit, it has  long been the agency for development of our economy. The  danger comes when the entrepreneur has access to tax  dollars, and influences government policy for personal profit.  Such practice is not only questionable in terms of its morality,  but also in terms of developing  sound economic policy.

Moments later, number one  son, Grenville tooted his horn  as he passed below on Highway  101, turned at the ferry terminal, pulled into the driveway  and announced that the truck  was GONE.  At 12:05 a.m. we phoned  RCMP, Gibsons, Young Corporal Milt Wilhelms  presiding...at this ungodly  hour.  At  12:05 RCMP, Gibsons,  phoned back...SKEA. Get  dressed...stand by.  At 12:15 RCMP, Gibsons  phoned again...Got your  truck... now kindly move the  bloody thing off the main  highway at Granthams Landing.  Ten Minutes...Hey,  sophisticated Vancouver Police  Departments...Stick this record  retrieval on your station notice  boards as an example of high  efficiency %..  My grateful thanks to Young  Corporal Milt Wilhelms and his  midnight crew...great job  fellows.

One of our main goals  this year has been to inform the  residents of the Sunshine Coast  of the Mothers' March, and to  help people understand just  what their donations are used  for. This would not have been  possible without the terrific help,  we received from your newspaper.  Please allow me to also say  thanks to Steve Sleep and the  crew at Cable 10, for also helping us publicize the March,     ,  Although all the results, are  not yet in, early indications are  of a successful campaign. It re  quires the varied contributions  of many different people, businesses, and groups to stage a  successful March, but I would  particularly like to single out  two groups.  To the over 100 volunteer  marchers who selflessly contributed their time, a sincere  thank you. To the many people  who gave donations, I also say  thank you. Your contributions  will be used to help the physically disabled in B.C.  If anyone still wishes to participate, you can mail donations  to the Kinsmen Club of Gibsons  and District, Box 22, Gibsons,  BC VON 1V0.  Our door to door appeal is  now over for this year and there  should be no more Marching  Mothers at your doorstep.  The Heart Fund will be starting   their   canvassing   on  February 14.

However, the letter titled  French  After  School  by  H.^  Wright, has, to be  the, mosQ  misguided effort I have read for 0  some,, time. - It is full ���'; of unV-1  qualified statements and even ;  indicates that the writer really  doesn't understand what French  Immersion is or how it works.  The writer's comments about  Quebec were the icing on the  cake. I can't believe that anyone  would be looking for English  signs in P.Q. If there were  English signs everywhere we  wouldn't need French Immersion, we would simply all speak  English. If that is what you are  in favour of then we won't likely be seeing your children in the  Immersion classes.  French Immersion is nothing  new. It is in place all over this  country and one proud B.C.  school has already had a  graduating class (K-12) of Immersion students. No one has to  take French Immersion classes.  It is only going to be available,  hopefully, here so that parents  who want their children to have  the same opportunities as the  children in other Canadian  towns and cities will have that  chance.  One other thing, I wish I  could speak Chinese too, but  remember it is French that is the  other official language in the  country.  D. Hunter  Impressed  Editor:  I was favourably impressed  by the showing, February 6, on  the local community television  channel, of videos done by  students from Elphinstone  Secondary.  The theme was Peace, and  most of the presentations were  thoughtful and original. They  showed that we have young  people in our midst who are  talented and informed and who  care deeply about the kind of  world they are growing up into.

Verna Sim of  the Gibsons and District Chamber of Commerce had brought  the date of George Gibson's arrival to the mayor's attention  last week.  No details have been worked  out but Alderman Dixon and  Alderman Peterson seemed to  like the idea. Alderman Maxwell and Marshall were not at  the meeting.  Alderman Norm Peterson offered a suggestion passed on  from John Burnside to have someone re-enact George Gibson  rowing to Vancouver, laden  with fresh vegetables, as a symbolic linking of the two birthdays. Planner Rob Buchan  suggested the town invite Vancouver Mayor Mike Harcourt  and Expo chairman Jim Pat-  tison to the occasion.  Former mayor Larry Labonte attended the meeting and  praised the idea of a town picnic  and another proposal of  Strom's to set a plaque in a spot  approximate to where George  Gibson landed.  But he took issue with the  new council's decision to drop  the town flag from Centennial  expenses/ "-  "You only see it once in a  hundred years and 99.9 per cent  of us are not going to be here  for the next one. Maybe the  minister of finance can change  Ms mind on this."  He suggested reducing the  cost ($2700 for an order of flags  in two sizes) by reducing the size  of the order. He said council  should at least assist the Gibsons Chamber of Commerce,  which is willing to order the  flags.  Peterson agreed with  Labonte: "It's the town's birthday, so why should private  business do it? The town should  do it," he said.  Strom replied that council  had not broken down the  $10,000 for Centennial expenses  budgeted by the previous coun  cil. Perhaps after a committee  meeting this month, she said, a  portion could be allocated to  help the chamber with the flag.  Pressed by a chamber representative for a figure, Strom  said: "Until we know what  other items will cost, we can't  say how much. It could be half,  we just don't know. Maybe we  could go higher, maybe three-  quarters."  She insisted that council had  decided against funding the flag  because there were other Centennial expenses of more importance.  Alderman and finance chairman   Gerry   Dixon   said   he  wondered why an entrepreneur  hadn't gone ahead with the project. He added:  "Personally I find it such a  minor item when we're living in  a town where taxes are exorbitant."  "Since when," asked  Labonte, "are taxes exorbitant?  They're not worse than  anywhere else, I'll tell you that  much."  "Come to me," said Dixon,  "and I'll give you some reading  to do."  "I've done a lot of reading in  the last 12 years," Labonte said.  "Maybe not enough," said  Dixon.  ���{������-���^jr  WHITE  SHOULDERS  TRAVELLER'S  GIFT SET  Reg. 11.50  Sale 925  HEART  SHAPED  BOXES OF  CHOCOLATES  From  2" to 1295  GANONGS  MOIRS  AND SMILES  150 gm size  all 3 brands  Sale457  GANONGS  COMIC HEART  BOX  All 75 gm sizes  Half Price  VERVE  Body Scent Mist  Reg. 6.95  Sale469  SOPHIA  Cologne - 70 ml  Reg, 15.50  Sale950  YARDLEY  All Yardley Products  Soaps - Colognes - Bath  20% OFF  I Post Office  Gibso^  ���;        SyrMAiyCREST MALLGIBSONS     886-7213 ;  At Harmony Hall  With 75 members in attendance the February meeting in  Harmony Hall was chaired by  President Jim Munro.

It is not too late to start, so  do come and have fun with us.  We will continue to play oh a  regular basis after the instruction classes are finished.  Cards, scratch pads, score  pads and pens and pencils were  donated by the Royal, Montreal  and Commerce banks, and the  Sunshine Coast Credit Union.  We do appreciate these gifts.

Students selected for the  Forum program take part in a  number of interesting activities  in the nation's capital - including actually sitting in the  Commons and Senate Chambers, talking to parliamentarian  and senior public servants, and  visiting Government House and  the Supreme Court of Canada.  They will also participate in a  mock cabinet discussion of immigration policy, and take part  in a staged debate on federal/provincial relations.  By the end of the week-long  program, the students will have  learned a great deal about the  challenges and the complexities  in the way their government  operates.  As well, and equally important, they will have acquired a  better understanding of their  fellow Canadians from across  the land.  Students rely on the support  of local organizations to assist  in paying their fees for the program, and to help with travel  costs not covered by a grant  from the Secretary of State.

There's a father and son team  with Philip Gordon as Treasurer and Peter as Secretary and  Larry "Bongo" Knowles will  try to keep things in order as  Chairman.

Heart Foundation often gets  short changed as the Mother's  March and the Variety Club  Telethon immediately precede  its annual campaign for funds.  This is unfortunate as the cause  is certainly worthwhile and the  Heart Fund's motto "we've  touched the heart of someone  you know" is so true.  A lot has been accomplished  toward reducing the incidence  of heart , disease through  research and public information  and this is made possible with  Heart Fund monies. There will  be a Heart Fund canvasser at  your door sometime before the  >.end <of the month. Even a small  donation makes that person's  :; efforts worthwhile.; Please* help  "Keep thebeat."

Heart Foundation  will be sponsoring a display at  the Sunnycrest Mall, on Friday,  February 14, 1986, between the  hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. At  this time Heart representatives  will be taking blood pressure  and generally taking time to talk  individually to those who are interested.  This will not be a lecture; just  a friendly informative opportunity to ask the questions you  always wanted to ask but didn't  know who to ask. This display  spearheads the annual door-to-  door canvass for funds; 86 cents  out of every dollar being spent  on research and public information. We get good value for our  dollar.

HARRY TALES  St. Mary's Hospital staff held  a roast and toast evening to  Harry and Doreen Jenkins on  Saturday, February 7, at the  Parthenon Theatre Restaurant.  A good crowd was in attendance from the "basement  crew" to administration and  board members, and representatives from the Hospital Auxiliary.  Program organizer was  Wayne Robinson; Announcer,  Nick Vucurevich; saying grace  (with an extra prayer that he  pick the tables in proper order  to go up to buffet dinner) was  Dr. Eric Paetkau.  The food was great with a  special salmon mousse with fish  supplied by Dr. Walt Burtnick.  Entertainment was by the  staff's Harry Tale Players,  Allison Gibson, Maxine  Holmes, Wendy Hunt, Jan  Kennedy, Marjorie McKenzie,  Gayle Montgomery, Signi Mur-  gatroyd and Jean Stewart.  Six Bells and Buoy were,  Renna Carlyle, Stan Carlyle,  Jean Eldred, Phyllis Hedden,  Jean Savage, Dot Vaughn and  Dorothy Van Velzen.  Then there was the song and  dance group, The Crew: Cindy  Brock, Lilo Buchorn, Michelle  Chapman and Joanne Rego.  Songs were composed by  Phyllis Hedden, Stan Carlyle  (who also composed the Salute  to the Chief) and Ian Hunter.  Harry Jenkins, who has been  the engineer at St. Mary's Hospital for the past 12 years, and  whose wife's years, as a volunteer at the hospital outdo him  by two years, was the recipient  of several gifts. First Chairman  of the Board, Tom Meredith  presented a bouquet to Doreen  for keeping him well and a gift  for Harry.  Wendy Hunt, for the department heads, gave a picture of  Harry and Doreen taken at the  Christmas party. There was a  gift from the hospital staff and  from the Hospital Employees'  4th-28th  Union. Chairman Dorothy  Goesen gave him his retirement  pin and Vice-Chairman Joanne  Paul another gift.  , The Jenkins' daughter Mrs.  Maureen .White from Sidney  was at the head table with them  along with friend Kay Purdy.  The Jenkins eventually will  move to Victoria but will be  around for a while yet.  The evening ended with a  rendition of He's an Englishman sung by Shirley Mills.  It was an hilarious evening  and the entertainment went  through many funny incidents  that have happened in the hospital involving Harry.  Harry made a fine speech,  thanking the staff for the help  they had given him, with also a  special thanks to his assistants  Stan, Larry, and Paul, and to  Ray Burton and Oskar  Johnson, former members of  the engineering department.  SAWYER FUNERAL  Harry Sawyer was a dear,  sweet, dapper man who came to  this Coast in the early 1940's.  Harry had owned a dairy  business in Vancouver and  when the dairies amalgamated  into one he kept his shares and  came to Sechelt.  He was in the taxi business  with Frank French, Bill Cramer  and Cec Lawrence in the early  days.  A First World War veteran,  he was a president of the Royal  Canadian Legion Branch 140,  was involved with the Credit  Union, an original member of  the Bethel Baptist Church and  an active member of the Sechelt  Board of Trade, and a very  community-minded gentleman.  Harry was born in 1896  which made this his 90th year.  The last year he spent at Shorncliffe and from there did a lot of  walking around the village. It is  just the past two weeks that he  started slipping away and he  died quietly in his sleep on Friday, February 7.  The funeral will be at the  Bethel Baptist Church on  Wednesday, February 12 at 1  p.m.  .lv.fi  Floor Coverings*  Wall Coverings,  and now a full selection of  Levolor  fgp-. Window Coverings!

We had a report from Len  Herder about his committee's  trip to Victoria to discuss financing our new building. I think  they impressed the legislators  with the plans and what we had  accomplished already, and that  we were planning for something  that would be of value not to  seniors alone but to the whole  community. The committee felt  that they had made a good impression.  People  helping  people  Now we must try to be patient even though with the  weather we are enjoying it is difficult to sit still and wait.

It  takes determination and hard  work to make a go of it these  days, but John Peebles and  Frank Nagy of Four Seasons  Upholstery have plenty of both.  I visited their shop in Madeira  Park, right next door to the Oalc  Tree Market, and was impressed with the work I saw, and the  positive attitude of these two  fellows.  John and Frank come from  Powell River, where they worked on boat covers and interiors,  automotive upholstery and  home furniture. They found  that their business was coming  mainly from the Harbour, and  decided to bring their operation  down here. Since they openesj  November 4, business has been  steady. Look for their bright  new sign, and drop in for.a  chat. _   ���       .

Writers' Festival  plans underway  by Ruth Forrester  The Suncoast Writers' Forge  is making great headway with  this year's Festival of the Written Arts.  One of Canada's most colourful and well-known writers  is W.O. Mitchell and he will be  appearing at the Festival, it was  announced at a; recent Forge  meeting.  The problem faced last year  with Peter Gzowski's appearance will undoubtedly surface  again this year at Mitchell's  -that of finding a hall with sufficient seating capacity for the  hundreds of people who will  want to attend.  Canada's hottest playwright/musical theatre Writer,  John Gray, will also appear at  the festival. His hits include Billy Bishop Goes to War, Rock  'N Roll, and Don Messer's  Jubilee.  He is  the author  of two  novels,   Dazzled   arid   Stage  Fright.  There will of course be  several more speakers and these  will be announced when arrangements are final.  Forge members are already  busy planning fund-raising activities to help meet the many  expenses involved in such a  huge venture as the festival, so  your support will be appreciated  at, a Reno Casino night on  March 1 at Greene Court followed by a sale of books on  March 15. v  Anyone interested in joining  the Suncoast Writers' Forge  should enquire At the Book  Store on Cowrie Street.  ���.nuv.v.v.v.v.'.sis  Quote of the Week  "Prejudices, whether religious,,  I racial, patriotic, or political are  *      destructive to the foundations of  human development."  *  BahaT Writings  ��tt��-itmtti.Lmw^  mmmmmtmm*  Diesel Engine Rebuilding  Industrial Parts     >  Hwy Iffl,  Madeira Park  883-2616  ���^mM-WMim.^^  i  "V��%';V��'i��'.#AV.\\  On the spot...while you wait.

I could go on, but if we have  to say goodbye to Katimavik I  think it cannot be said better  than by Mark Hamel writing a  farewell in June 1985 to the  group with whom he had spent  the previous nine months.  To Anik, Annie, Arlee,  Claire, Guy, Kathy, Kevin,  Mark, Marlene, Patrick and  Richard whose homes are between Nanaimo and St. John's,  Mark writes:  "So ends the story of  Katimavik group no. 246, a  good group, some would say a  great group. It was. a group that  set an excellent example in Ontario, worked hard arid survived  in Quebec and upheld the great  Katimavik reputation in B.C. It  is also one of the few groups  that can boast of finishing with  all of its 12 original participants.  "I think I know how we will  feel when we are safely home in  what used to be our normal environment.  "We will feel empty - keep  looking for a familiar face and  keep listening for a familiar  voice or laugh. We will all feel  as if a very special friend has  left. We will be sad that we  didn't use every possible minute  in the last month to be with the  others in the group and to let  our feelings be known. We will  grow teary-eyed whenever we  hear Cat Stevens or smell fresh-  baked rye bread.  "Our own families for a  while will seem like poor substitutes for our Katimavik family.  "For a while we will faithfully write letters and there will  even be the occasional phone  call. Inevitably, these will fade  away.    .  "As sad as it is, the twelve of  us most likely will never be  together again and certainly  never in the same circumstances  as we have enjoyed in the past  nine months - sharing the many  joys and the few tragedies of living with those we love.  "It is reassuring to know that  although we may never see each  other again, that there is a  special place in all our hearts for  every person in the group. So,  sometimes when I start staring  into space, it will be because I  will be thinking of one of you,  and if sometimes a mysterious  smile flits across my lips, it will  be because I'm thinking of one  of the many good times we had  together and I really think I will  be smiling mysteriously quite  often in the future. I will miss  all of you.  "Please take care and if  you're ever in Toronto...Love  Mark."  Super Host  seminars  by Verna Sim  Now that the hustle and bustle of Christmas is over, it is  time to seriously consider Expo  86, opening May 2.  The Sechelt and District  Chamber of Commerce, the  Gibsons and District Chamber  of Commerce and the Sunshine  Coast Tourism Association  have trained leaders available to  conduct Super Host seminars.  The proposed date of the  eight hour seminar is Saturday,  February 15. As the classroom  and the teaching aids are being  provided free of charge, there  should be little or no cost to  participants. After successfully  completing the course, each  Host will receive a pin and a certificate.  Remember, the Super Host  seminar will not only prepare us  for Expo visitors, but also improve our rapport with our loyal, year round customers. (How  did you handle your last complaint?)  If you wish to participate,  please phone Verna Sim at the  Chamber Office, Gibsons:  Monday to Friday from 10 a.m.  to 1 p.m. at 886-2325.  Lunch will be available in the  cafeteria, provided by the Elphie Foods class.  Coast News, February 10,1986  886-7215  Sunycrest Mall.  Gibsons, B.C.

Pender High news  by Michelle Cochet  As I mentioned in last week's  column, our graduating class is  planning to have a dance-a-  thon. The date has been set for  Saturday, February 15 in the  Community Hall. There will be  about 10 couples dancing. The  grads and their partners are to  arrive'at the hall at 11:45 and  begin dancing at noon. They  will then continue to dance until  midnight, a total of 12 hours.  In order to gain enough  capital to make the dance worthwhile, these students will be  going around to the various  homes and businesses of our  area and asking for pledges.  The pledges will be based on an  hourly basis, just in case the  dancers are unable to last the  entire 12 hour period.  On behalf of the grads, I  would like to encourage everybody to pledge generously.  These students are making plans  for the best graduation ceremonies ever, but unfortunately  they- can -not' make if' without  your contribution. Please keep  this in mind when you see one  of our students approaching  you.  Last week, I mentioned that  both our Lip Synch, and our  Valentine's Day dance are  scheduled to occur on the same  day.  Due to a protest about the  shortage of time, the Lip Synch  has been postponed. The new  date that has been set is Thursday, February 20 right after  lunch. This activity will be open  to the public so please come and  see our students in action. We  can guarantee that you will enjoy it.  Incidentally, the Valentine's  dance will still be this Friday.  Well, our girls tried their  best, but they were unable to  beat the extremely strong  Powell River teams. They  played two games during their  visit, one against Oceanview,  and the other against Brooks.  Although they did not emerge  from these competitions victorious, they did play very well.  Their loss against Oceanview  was only by a total of 10 points,  not very much when you consider that one basket scores two.  The girls all enjoyed the trip and  are looking forward to the next.  They would like to thank their  coach/Mr. Bruce Forbes, for all  the work he put in to make the  trip possible. I'm sure that they  appreciated it very much.  At 5 a.m. Monday morning,  a small group of our students  boarded the bus in Madeira  Park on their way to Whistler  Mountain for our annual two  day ski trip. While on the trip  these students spent the night at  a youth hostel just a little way  from the mountain. They ate all  their meals at the Keg, which is  conveniently located in Whistler  Village and spent their days on  the slopes.  Lessons were supplied to all  the students involved as part of  a package deal (skis, boots,  poles, lessons, and lift tickets).  The group was chaperoned by  Mr. Gary Winkelman, and Ms.  Wendy Simmonds, both  teachers here at Pender Harbour Secondary School.  As usual, the trip was a big  success, and a load of fun. No  sooner had our students arrived  home and they were busy talking, about next year's ski trip.  On behalf of the students involved, I would like to thank all  of the staff who worked so hard  to make this trip possible,  especially Mr. Gary Winkelman  who did most of the coordinating.

The famous image was brought out at last  week's council meeting during discussions about the town's  Centennial. A larger than usual public turned out for the meeting.  ���John Gleeson photo  George  in  Gibsons  Bist praises  handicapped ass'n  by George Cooper, 886-8520  The Sunshine Association for  the Handicapped has an enviable and admirable record  said Harvey Bist, the District  Supervisor of the Ministry of  Human Resources. Mr. Bist  was the guest speaker at the  Association's annual meeting  January 28 in the Achievement  Centre. '  The Association has set up  and administered the Achievement Centre in the Seamount  Industrial subdivision. It has  taken on more and more responsibility in its contracts with  the ministry. The Association  has held seminars and open  house, "hiis:^ increased the  number of referrals, and has initiated new programs in cooperation with the ministry.  "The Association has shown  outstanding development in  their service to the  handicapped," Mr. Bist told the  meeting.  But above all the Association  has taken on the responsibilities  of advocate for the handicapped in the community to make  life more meaningful and satisfying for them.  "That is your major effort,"  Harvey Bist told the members.  "The Sunshine Association for  the Handicapped has to be an  agency of out-reach for the handicapped, has to be the advocate for their rights and for  the means to live satisfying lives  in their home community.  "You must take risks for the  handicapped," Bist said, "You  must see to their protection.  Often you are going to be the  only organization in the community to recognize the needs of  the handicapped."  In his address Mr. Bist outlined the services and resources  available to the handicapped  from the ministry.  "Human Resources recognizes," he said, "that every  handicapped person at age 19 is  an adult with rights and  privileges as well as responsibilities. Each one therefore  must be involved in any decisions that concern him or her;  for example, where he is to live.  "The   Ministry  of Human  Resources provides support services for the mentally handicapped person and his family.  These servcies are GAIN, ex  tended medical care, family and  children's services, special training, and transportation.  "As well," Bist continued in  his address, "there are some options provided in the development of skills, and to aid the  client. In this the ministry can  provide assessment, testing and  counselling.  "The uniqueness of the family and the stress it may have in  coping with a member who is  mentally handicapped is  recognized by the ministry,"  Bist said, "and the ministry  stands ready with many services  to support that family."  In her report to the meeting,*  Wendy Jackson, the newly appointed supervisor of the  Achievement Centre, said that  the main activities at present  were furniture re-finishing and a  contract for boom boards and  boom plugs, as well as some  truck-washing days.  "We have some possible activities to investigate," Wendy  said, "but we do need*more  contracts for shop work."  President-elect for 1986,  Peter Bandi, said the Family  Support committee of which he  was chairman had investigated  the needs of parents and what  expectations they have of the  Association. He said a condensed version of the committee's  report was being prepared for  the members.  "Our Association's name reflects our objectives," Bandi  said.  Honorary life membership  for the man who produced the  new logo for the Association,  John Weyberg, was unanimously approved by the members.  Officers for 1986: President,  Peter Bandi; Vice-President,  Marlene Lemky; Secretary, Pat  Juraschka; Treasurer, Jack  White; Directors, Ines Petersen,  Myrtle Braun, Marcel Girard,  Frank West, and Ed Charle-  bois.  A gift from the members to  Marlene Lemky who has served  as president for the past two  years was presented by Myrtle  Braun.

Automobile Association magazine about the Circle Tour Car  Rally in March.  "It was a very nice article," he siad, "but it mentioned  Gibsons and completely ignored Sechelt. And Sechelt funded  the Circle Tour and Gibsons would not."  Emergency unit  There is only one unit of medical emergency equipment on  the Sunshine Coast and until now it has been sitting in the  basement of St. Mary's Hospital.  "Not the place you'd want it," Alderman Craig told  Sechelt Council last week. "It's there in the event of the  hospital being hit."  The regional district has found a better location for the  unit, he siad, which consists of stretchers and medical supplies.-  -^C|N*^iiiB�� ��*.'-.

I CAME OVER  all self righteous! As soon as he said to me, "Couldn't we eat  something nutritious?", I could feel my vitamins sizzling.  All those years of denying him candy; taking the hard way out when  we could have lived off frozen dream topping; inventing a thousand different ways of serving spinach in an appetising way - and now this insult.

Drain  on paper and keep warm.  5 .Serve with plum sauce, stir fried vegetables and crispy noodles.  It was all so simple. I smiled smugly and asked for the verdict. I'd  just put a few on his plate.  "Not the best thing I've ever eaten," he said, poking at them  suspiciously.  I growled. There were about half a dozen left in the serving dish  -nobody apparently wanted them so after supper I put on the coffee.  When I came back to pour it out the were all gone!  I glanced questioning!;/ at the nutrition seeker. He had the grace to  look just slightly embarassed.  "They weren't that bad," he siad.  I flung him a look that would make lesser mortals grovel.  "They were really quite good," he said as he left the room hurridly,  and then the little beast shouted behind him, "I ate them because I  thought they'd be good for me!"  Somehow or other, motherhood is not easy!  NEST LEWIS  9  Need a quiet spot for that  BUSINESS SEMINAR?  Holding a Workshop?  Giving a class?

Keepin' the Beat. The B.C.  Heart Foundation's message for  Heart Month starting February  14.  Both Yvonne and myself  have more than a passing interest in things paranormal. My  own fascination with the occult  may stem from the fact that, as  a very young child, I lived in a  house that was most definitely  haunted. My poem The Ghosts,  explores this theme and a short  story The Dark Companions,  inspired by the same odd incidents, will soon be forthcoming.  This is my own personal  ghost story. Recent research informs me that black dogs are a  very common death portent in  East Ariglia and grey ladies are  also a very frequently reported  form of apparition. The phantom clown is unusual however, I  have my own theories on"what  this most horrifying of the spectres represented. The house in  question was built on damp,  low lying ground, almost a  prerequisite for supernatural occurrences. ���  In the past year, Yvonne and  myself have tracked down  several excellent books on occult phenomena. British writer  and novelist, Colin Wilson has  contributed three watershed  volumes to the genre: The Occult; Mysteries and Poltergeist.  They cover everything from  dowsing to demonic possession.  I will deal with Wilson and his  books at length in a later column, s.  My purpose here is to deal  with another book entitled This  House Is Haunted by Guy Lyon  Play fair. It is probably the most  carefully documented and convincing account of a poltergeist  infestation ever recorded.  The strange events of what  has come to be known as the  Enfield case, occurred over a 14  month period in the late seventies. Enfield, a quiet modern  suburb near London was hardly  a traditional setting for ghostly  goings-on. Yet, during ���- the  period of the disturbances,  almost every known form of  psychic manifestation was  observed and recorded in front  of many witnesses. The affair  made headlines in several  British newspapers and was the  subject, of documentaries on  both the BBC and the Scottish  television network. Now Guy  Playfair, journalist and psychic  investigator, who was intimately  connected with the case, reveals  the whole, curious story.  The central characters in the  Enfield mystery are a family  named Harper - a divorced  mother and her three young  children, two adolescent girls  and a younger boy. In the usual  way of such cases, the psychic  forces use the pubescent girls as  their focal point, chiefly the  oldest girl, Janet.  The initial phenomena are  relatively mild - drawers open of  their own accord; there are  unexplained tapping noises; furniture moves itself around inexplicably. Soon, however, the  haunting begins to shift into  high gear.  Objects begin flying around  the rooms at random; coins  materialize apparently through  the ceilings; spoons bend without being touched; various apparitions are seen, including  that of an old man. Then Janet  begins exhibiting all the classic  signs of possession: speaking in  strange voices; levitating and  apparently passing through  solid walls.  Numerous experts are  brought in, including Playfair  and his colleague, Maurice  Grosse, both members of the  Society for Psychic Research.  When the voice speaking  through Janet is addressed  directly, it claims to come from  the graveyard. A speech expert  confirms   that   it   would   be  physically impossible for Janet  to fake this voice which is harsh  and rasping.  The various disturbances  continue unabated for over a  year and are exhaustively  recorded both on audio and  video tape and on film. Then,  abruptly as it began, the haunting ceases and the Harper family is released from its ordeal.  The case of the Enfield poltergeist is certainly one of the,  strangest and certainly one of  the most thoroughly  documented, in the the history  of paranormal occurrences.  Playfair tells his bizarre story  well and the book contains  some fascinating photographs,  including one of the possessed  Janet levitating. The book is  somewhat repetitious and ends  inconclusively but as Playfair  notes, he is recording facts, not  writing fiction: This House is  Haunted is one of the most  compelling arguments yet for  the existence of phenomena,  totally outside the realm1 of pre-  sent\human knowledge.

Elderhostel is a program for  people over 60 years of age who  wish to travel and take courses  at the same time. Hundreds o��  colleges and universities around  North America and internationally offer non-credit courses  and activities to people from  other locations.  The students, who are from  all kinds of educational  backgrounds, will take from  one to three courses during the  day. Topics include "Canadian  Drama", "Canadian Art and  People", "Highlights from  English Literature", and  "Aquaculture". These will be  tied to field trips and related activities.  Up to 80 students are expected over the two week  period. Because the Sechelt  campus has no residences,  students will be housed in  private homes. People who  billet will be eligible to join  courses (as space permits), and  other group activities. If there is  space, local people who don't  take billets may be able to take  courses as fee payers.  People who want to take  billets, or to find out more  about Elderhostel should call  the College at 885-9310. Potential hosts are invited to a  meeting Wednesday, February  19, 7:30 pm. at the Sechelt campus, to watch a slide show, meet  College representatives and the  local advisory group helping to  organize this program.

It was a busy production day at the Coast News when I  visjted for lunch so there was no time dawdle, but there  were many there more fortunate, idling a pleasant afternoon away in conversation or ruminating to the pleasantly  unobtrusive music or watching the boats come and go in  Gibsons Harbour.  . The Gramma's luncheon menu is priced to fit the  economic pocket book. Top of the line is a New York  Steak Sandwich served with soup, fries, and salad for just  $6.50. Also on the menu are such thrifty delights as Zucchini and Chicken Strips as entrees for just $4.75. Fish and  chips can be enjoyed for just $4.25; hamburgers for less  than $4 and Chili on a bun for just $2.75.  Included for the dieting or non-meat eaters are a Tossed  Salad offering and a Cheese and Veggie Platter with the  chef's own dressing. The Tossed Salad is priced at just  $2.75 while the platter comes with a modest $4.25 price  tag.  For the occasional taste adventure Nachos are served  with both cheddar and mozzarella cheese for just $4.25.  These items are all included on the regular luncheon  menu but there is also a special of the day. I had prawns  and chips after a bowl of excellent clam chowder for just  $5.95.  I contented myself with tea, though of course  Gramma's has a full choice of alcoholic beverages for  those who wish to indulge with their lunch.  Stop by lower Gibsons' neighbourhood pub soon for  lunch. You'll find it pleasant, relaxing, and no strain on  your pocket book. Your taste buds will like it, too.

A. Mark Asleson  Christina R.A. Asleson  Executors  by Farris, Vaughan,  Wills & Murphy  Coast News, February 10,1986  Editor:  Last week it was reported  that "temporary" one year  foreshore leases for fishfarming  would now be granted automatically, without any kind of  public consultation what-so-  ever. This follows months of  controversy and rising public  concern that fish farms pose a  threat of disease and pollution  to the foreshore and endanger  its rich natural community of  life.  There is also a provincial election around the corner, bringing  a possible change to government. It is obvious that the  automatic granting of leases is  nothing but an attempt to get  our foreshore into private investors hands as fast as possible,  before public pressure or a  change in government stops the  give-away and possible destruction of this valuable resource.  We also read that the provincial government has approved  $50,000.00 of public funds to  cover costs of the Tourist Association to promote aquaculture  and pay for Oddvin Vedo's travel expenses to Norway. An  additional $100,000 grant is to  follow later when needed by fish  fanners and the Tourism Association.  This boundless generosity of  the provincial government with  our foreshore and our tax  money toward fish fanners and  the Tourist Association is in ,  sharp contrast to the demand  for concessions from government employees and cutbacks  of funding for education, health  and other social services.  What it boils down to is that  this government is pursuing a  policy of transferring our  natural and financial resources  into private hands.  In my opinion the privatization of public wealth puts this  whole government in a conflict  of interest situation.  It is time that the resources of  this province are used to satisfy  the needs of the people as a  whole and not channelled into  the pockets of self-interest  groups and corporations.  Hans Penner  Gibsons  In the early hours of  February 1, 1986, suspects  broke into a local business, the  Jade Palace restaurant, located  on Highway 101 near Crucil  Road in Gibsons.  The suspect or suspects gained entry through an adjacent office and once inside the follow-  17.  ing articles were stolen: four  dozen cases of beer, 15  26-ounce bottles of hard liquor,  and an AM/FM radio cassette.  The total value of these items is  $600.  If you have information  about this crime or any other  crime please call Crime Stoppers, at 886-TIPS or 886-8477.  Iris apologizes  Editor:  Oops, people of Madeira  Park and Garden Bay, I  apologize! I put up notices saying to watch Channel 10 at 7:30  p.m. last Thursday, because  Gordon McAllister and I would  be T.V. stars. We were too. Using slides we described what  we'd learned in Nanaimo at a  big enquiry about the Nanoose  and Jervis testing ranges.  The problem was that Chan  nel 10 in Pender isn't the same  as Gibsons and didn't show it.  (How should I know - we don't  even get cablevision here in Egmont.)  Sony! Anyway we're taping  the broadcast on Tuesday night  and because so many of you are  interested will show it soon.  We'll put up notices again.  Believe them!  Iris Griffith  Egmont  No discrimination  Editor:  A letter published last week  (Well being for the well-to-do)  appeared to imply that the Continuing Education brochure  should not be used to advertise  the services of these local  wholistic health practioners.  I would like to clarify that,  space permitting, this "advantage" is, and has been, available  to promote many other local ac-  W��5  tivities which have a significant  educational and/or recreational  component. However, there is a  charge for advertising in our  brochure for commercial activities - i.e. those which do not  qualify as a non-profit activity.  The cost of the services advertised has not been seen as a reason  to discriminate.  R. Moss  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.

Coast News, February 10,1986  Amendments to the Lands,  Parks and Housing Aquaculture Policy and Ministry of  Environment Plan agreement,  signed into effect on December  4, 1985 by F.G. Edgell, Executive Director of Lands, provides several options for tenure  for those who seek to start up  an aquaculture enterprise.  A copy of the amendment,  received by the Coast News last  week, indicates that the ministry  (LPH) 'may accept applications  for a section 10 licence, licence  of occupation or lease... Receipt  of a management plan approved by the Ministry of Environ-  LOVE  Nothing says  it like roses...  ...and we  think ours are  the prettiest.

(by the stoplight), Sechelt.  885-7600  ment (MOE) is not a prerequisite to acceptance of an application for tenure.'  In a conversation with the  Coast News last Friday Joe  Loyer, Regional Director,  LPH, pointed out that the granting of a one year lease was not  automatic, but dependent on  various requirements of LPH  and MOE.  A lease is no longer the  primary form of tenure, but a  lease or a licence of occupation  may be issued by LPH 'upon  the completion of a management plan for production which  has been approved by MOE';  The new section 10 licence is  for use when studies or additional data are needed in order  for MOE approval of the management plan; it may also be  issued if MOE indicates that  more than 60 days will be needed to approve the plan being  prepared by the applicant.  The amended policy states  clearly that a section 10 'is not  to be used to authorize the commercial culture or harvesting of  aquatic plants or animals, nor  permanent residential habitation.'  While any foreshore is under  a section 10 licence, LPH will  not issue any other Land Act  lease or licence over the subject  area. A section 10 is unassignable and may be held for a  maximum time of one year.  When a licensee holding a  section 10 has completed a management production plan that  has been endorsed by MOE an  application may be submitted to  convert the section 10 licence to  either a licence of occupation or  lease for production purposes;  these must be pursued in accordance with normal procedures,  including referrals at the  regional district level.  The main purpose of a section 10 licence, according to  Loyer and to the amended  policy document, is 'to use the  land in order to develop a  management plan for production, said use to include studies,  investigations and installation  of temporary improvements,  such as floats, equipment and  other similar improvements  which may reasonably be required to assess the suitability of  the land for aquaculture.  'The licensee shall not start  up, operate or engage in any activity upon the land except as  authorized by this licence.'  Loyer was adamant that no  development on site is permitted  under a section 10 licence,  although was not able to fully  expand on the extent of MOE's  input into the amended process.  He did, however, refer the  Coast News to a source of information on the matter. The  Coast News is still attempting to  contact this source.  Historic first  for Sechelts  Continued from page 1  Indian peoples, is thg route  which the Sechelts chose to obtain self-government because  the Band believes, according to  Anderson, that the Constitution  under Section 35, already entrenches their right to self-  government, although it is not  specified.  This is an area where other  Indian groups have disagreed  with the Sechelts, saying that it  is not an alternative to the constitutional, entrenchment of In-  dian-self^overriment.  But to the Sechelt Indian  Band Bill C-93 is a way to free  themselves of the Indian Act  said Chief Dixon.  "Back in November, 1984,  the first time I met Crombie, I  told him - under the Indian Act,  you are my father. As my father, I ask you - let me go. I want  to have the same rights as you  do," Dixon said. "1116 next day  he set up the transition team  we've been working with, and  now he's come through for us.  "He said hefd dehyer^dhe,:  did," Dixon added.   '7 " '".....l'_v....'.  CARPETS  ROCKTON - 5 roils, beautiful  designer colours. Ideal for  bedrooms. Terrific savings at  $1050 sq. yd.
