Norm  Peterson  expressed some of these fears to  the rest of the board.  J, "You want us to go through  the Partners in Enterprise (PIE)  pirogram, but we can't take advantage  of that  without  the  whole, population of the Sunshine Coast," Peterson said.  ~- ��You tell us to contribute on  Oiir own, but you also want us  to participate, it doesn't make  sense," he continued,  f Sechelt representative, Director Anne Pre|sley, was quick to  jpin PetersOT^n expressing confusion aboiitihe position of the  Municipalities.  'kk   ''Perhaps   what   Alderman  Peterson is getting at, is now  that the function of the Economic Development Commission  _.||3DC) has changed, can the  municipalities opt out of the  function and not pay in any  more?" she asked.  ...Both Gibsons  and  Sechelt  hkye had representatives on the  EDC  since  its   inception   although Sechelt was without representation on a regular basis  dtorihg much of 1985.  -yThe EDC is operating as it  did during its first four years of  operation before the commissioner,   Oddvin  ,Vedo,   was  hired, that is, without a commissioner or secretarial staff.  Because of Vedo's departure  it is .felt that the structure of the  J��PC must be looked at and the  direction of development on the  Coast take a new turn. A Community   Development   Officer  (��DO), Irene Lugsdin, was appointed last summer and many  members of the board feel that  herjpresence on the EDC, and  Iter continued function as CDO  would best serve the needs of  the* Coast as a whole.  |SIn a policy statement presented to the board by its chairman,   Area  E   Director   Jim  Gjurney, this move towards a  more community-oriented approach is outlined.  ;  The preparation last year of  an-Economic   Employment  Development   Strategy   plan  made it clear,  the statement  says,   that   'greater   emphasis  should be placed on the existing  local industrial business and en-  t:tfie^;Stetbrs offer the greatest  opportunity for economic and  employment growth.  The regional board's desire  fdr the municipalities to approach the PIE program with a  view to obtaining funding is  also included in' the statement  but Peterson took great exception to this.  "You're still running the  railroad," he exclaimed. "We  don't have any input in this.  ���ii  ^*%&i#^^ ^*&1&o^jm the. .dta&ors. ,yn^^^^^d^h&m  chance to opt out."  Secretary-treasurer Larry Jar-  dine pointed out to Peterson  that the municipalities have  been a part of the function since  the beginning, because of the  importance of having all local  governments participate, and  the impossibility of the function  continuing without them.  The board agreed to delete  the contentious paragraph, but  themselves confused about the  municipalities' complaints.  "The by-law is clear as to  membership," Area A Director  Gordon Wilson said.; "��'If there  is a problem it is in terms of  direction and the broadness of  concerns, and that's addressed  in the policy statement.  "I think we should go further  and make the position of CDO  Please turn to page 4  - Despite the closures of many  sawmills in this province over  the last few years, one company  here on the Sunshine Coast,  Bayside Sawmills Ltd., has confidently gone ahead and built a  new sawmill and planer mill  near Port Mellon. Construction  of the mill began last summer  and the first logs were processed  in November; Though the company specializes in yellow cedar,  it also cuts Hemlock and  Douglas Fir.  Situated on three acres of  Howe Sound waterfront,, the  operation is capable of cutting  20 to 25 thousand board feet of  lumber per shift (a board foot is  a unit of volumn equal to a 12  inch square, one inch thick).  The, accompanying planer  mill, the first one in existence on  the Sunshine Coast, has the capability of finishing more lumber  than the sawmill can produce.  For this reason, custom planing  for other local sawmills can be  accomodated.  Bayside Sawmills is owned  and run by the^^ Tsuruda famUy,  including father, Steve Tsuruda,  and Brothers Dale and Ken.  The venture is a'natural ex-  tension ofthe family's sixteen  years of experience in buying  and exporting lumber for the  Japanese market and five years'  experience in operating another  sawmill; near the Avalon Log  Sorting grounds: Both these  operations are pwned by the  Tsuruda family and go under  the name of Copac Industries  Hie export business continues  Vancouver, but a decision was  *$*��&&  made to close the older sawmill',  because of its lack of automation and resulting higher labour,  costs. ; t*  However, most of the 10 emj-  ployees from the old-mill are  now employed at the new site  because even though the mills  4here are fully automated, more  lumber is now being handled*  The older mill may be reopened  in the future, if and whet*  lumber prices improve. >  The family has concentrated  for years in supplying lumber (p  Japan, particularly yellow  cedar. Their experience in this  specialty area has given them j*t  solid knowledge of this  market's requirements, and has  been incorporated in the design  of the mill so that Japan's differing lumber sizes can be  handled. The mill is also flexible  enough so that it can change  sizes quickly as new orders  come in. ;.  According to Dale Tsuruda/  whose job is administration,-  their expansion into a hew mill  goes against the general trend  currently prevalent in the forest  industry.

Because the  regional district had announced  that it will be conducting its  own poll to gauge public opinion, many residents have called their representatives querying  the questionnaire.  At last Thursday's regional  district meeting the board decided to place public announcements in the local press, indicating that its poll has not yet  been undertaken.

In San Juan County in  Washington State a citizens'  group has called for an environmental hearing to determine whether Sea Farms of  Norway should file an en-'  vironmental impact statement  before placing salmon pens in  Griffin Bay.  The state government has  responded and a hearing has  been set for February 27.  The citizens' group, the Griffin Bay Preservation Committee, was formed after  authorities last July unanimpus-  iy approved a permit for Sea  Farms to tow in the first 18 of  their 54 proposed pens for the  raising of Atlantic salmon.  Committee chairman John  Brookbank is a retired biologist  from the University of Florida  and a resident of San Juan  N Island. He said in a phone conversation with the Coast News  that Sea Farms has not yet placed any pens in the bay and is  trying to settle outside of court.  "They don't want to see a  full environmental study done,"  he said. "In similar cases these  companies have always backed  out of the project if it looked  like they might have to submit  to a study."  Brookbank said he is worried  about water pollution problems,  such as those reported from  Japan's yellowtail culture.  "You may be soon wonder  ing where all the red tides are  coming from in your area," he  said. "In Japan they just bloom  around the fish pens."  The committee plans to back  its case with several reports by  Japanese experts in the field.  Brookbank is also worried  about the impact of antibiotics  and other agents on the environment and the inevitable destruction of predators like otters,  seals and birds by the cul-  tivat6rs.  He said the Norwegian firms  are coming to B.C. and Washington because here they can use  salmon peris 16 times larger  than Norway's regulations  allow.  "After 20 years with the industry, the government over  there must have some, good  reasons," he said.  While rumblings of concern  are starting to be felt from the  state capital, he added, the B.C.  government still appears unconvinced that there may be a problem.  He said he had met with a  group of provincial Ministry of  Environment biologists last year  on Lopez Island.  "They gleefully told me they  were dealing out permits conditionally how and would worry  about environmental effects  later," he said.  Local hiring urged  for work on bypass  Local contractors are making  efforts to get the job of building  the eventual Gibsons bypass.  On their behalf, Fiedler  Brothers Contracting has urged  local governments to write the  provincial government and request that the proposed bypass  be built on a day labour basis,  using local crews and equipment.  ... Last week Gibsons and Sechelt Councils agreed to support  the request.  In a letter Ken Fiedler says  that coast contractors, working  in a combined effort, are  capable of completing the project but that the bonding requirements of the provincial  government would be beyond  their reach if it was put to contract tender.  However, using Ministry of  Highways supervision and  engineering facilities, he says,  similar projects have been done  on a day labour basis throughout the province.  Fiedler concludes, "If this  project is let on a contract basis  it would be built by a major  B.C. roadbuilder using their  own forces and equipment,  leaving little if any work for  local people. Considering the  state of the local economy, it is  imperative that the money spent  on this project (possibly two to  four million dollars) remain on  the Sunshine Coast."

In last Saturday's election, Edmonds polled 89 votes, while  challenger Guy Charles received 27 votes and Ben LePage,  one.  Gunnar gone  .

The application for a propane plumbing and heating  business on Highway 101 off North Road in Gibsons has  been withdrawn.  Council had at first planned to let the proposal reach public  hearing but apprehensions by the fire chief about a propane  storage facility on the site led to a withdrawl by the applicant.

WSiy dittta't  Oddvin tell ws?  The news item carried on the front page concerning fish-  fanning in the State of Washington should give us all  pause.  It appears that the only way of avoiding being accused  of being a 'nay sayer' on the Coast these days is to behave  like a mindless cheerleader on behalf of the exploits and  undertakings of Richard Tomkies, Oddvin Vedo, et al. We  will run the.risk of being so accused because we feel the  long-term view must be voiced.  We have taken a consistently open-minded view, even  supportive, of the development of fish farming on the  Coast, though the 'gold-rush' syndrome has caused us  some concern. ,v -  Specifically, we wonder why the fact that Norway, with  its long involvement in fish farming, has much more stringent regulations pertaining to the industry than we have  here, (first reported in the Coast News in October of last  year) has been reported to us by newspaper reporters instead pf by Oddvin Vedo.  The taxpayers of the Sunshine Coast have paid Mr.  Vedo's way to Norway on at least two occasions. Why  were his employers at the regional board and the taxpayers  not informed fully of the Norwegian situation.  Of course, the reason is Vedo's well-known and frequently expressed antipathy to any and all regulations. At  an Economic Development Commission meeting late last  year Vedo was asked why he hadn't reported in full on the.  Norwegian policies and experience. His answer was that  decisions in Norway were made by 'committees or  bureaucrats'.  This is the same man who wrote to-the provincial  government supporting the export of water from Freil  Falls without consultation with anyone else on the Coast.  The Village of Sechelt and the Town of Gibsons are being pressured to continue to see Vedo as the white and  shining knight -of economic hope despite his record of  wayward unaccountability to the taxpayers. It may.be time  for both councils to refuse to buckle to the pressure now  being applied and try to take an informed long-term view.  The environment and the long-term tourism potential of  the Sunshine Coast may well be at stake.  5 YEARS AGO  Minister of Lands, Parks and Housing^ James Cha-  bot, has announced a four month moratorium on the  granting of foreshore lease applications in the Pender  Harbour arear  A public meeting will be held in the Welcome Beach  Community Hal! on Redrooffs Road on Sunday to discuss the proposed purchase of land for the expansion  of the HalfmoonTBay fireball.  .'.. ..���:..:.' y.,..,y:y..L< :V.1p.YEARS:AGpr7:..;,.,/,.: .^:-m^^ r.  yf-jThere is public uproar over the-Social Credit govern- '���*  ment's announcement that ICBC rates would be doubled and tripled.

Then there are many who  think that a newspaper or its  publisher and its editor should  not be in the political arena. No  different than me being told  many years ago to stay out of  active politics while I was justice  of the peace by the then  attorney-general of the province, in other words the  Socreds had cancelled Put a  . liberal, temporarily.  If it will make you feel any  better, way back in ,1912 when  the fledgling Vancouver Sun  came into being, its managing  editor McConnell once ran in  the riding of Yale for a seat in  the House of Commons in the  Liberal interest and lost.

Yours truly  M Richard F. Kennett  "P:S. There is a feeling too that  further- weeding7 of^council! is  desirable,  next 'timer around.  AH! Politics.      ; c  Dear Mr. Kennett:  Thank you for your gentle,  kindly perspectives. It is a  pleasure to hear from someone  who can couch his views in such  grace and charity. (I use 'charity' in its lovely biblical sense of  'loving kindness' from, the  splendid Greek word 'caritas'.)  All too often it seems that we  wallow locally in rhetorical  hyperbole where, for example,  one cannot disagree without  declaring oneself 'disgusted and  degraded'; where, so to speak,  ponderous adjectives lead  through gates of pompous,  bombastic hypocrisy into a  garden of malevolence.  I was more upset about the  election campaign,  Mr.  Ken  nett, than about the result of the  election.  At the all-candidates meeting,  for example, the main speakers  spoke not to elicit information  nor to define attitudes. They  spoke to discredit or to inflict  injury. The door-to-door campaign included some of the most  vicious tactics possible. A long  ago column I wrote which mentioned that my parents were  compelled to work in a bomb  : factory during : the Second  World War, for example,' was  offered as evidence that they  were Nazi sympathizers.  As early as September we  learned that one Richard Tomkies was raising money for  chosen candidates. One prominent and reliable local business  man told of being asked for  $10,000. Campaigns were slickly organized and run for candidates for all three local  governments, two were successful - Gibsons and Sechelt.  As mentioned, the campaign  that I faced was both slick and  polished on the surface and as  down and dirty as they ever get  underneath.  This surreptitious campaign  complete with false front  organizations was run on behalf  of the extreme right wing - we  are not talking  conservatism  here, Mr. Kennett. To give you  some idea, the news contained  in this issue about fish farming  and the State of Washington's  view of what is happening here  in B.C. is of central relevance.  It is nothing new, as I am sure  you will be aware: it involves  the systematic looting of one of  the most gloriously beautiful  and richly endowed corners of  the world for the short term  gain of the few without regard  to the envirbhm^twei^ bequeath to the future. Nothing  new, but how long can we continue to do it before the damage  is irreversible.  Finally, may I offer for your  consideration the thought that it  is possible for a 'left-wing publisher' railing away at the follies  of our governments - and they  are many - and a somewhat  conservative elected official,  making as few changes as possible but making them quality  changes which waste as little  public money as possible, to exf  ist with integrity in one inf  dividual.  I thank you again, Mr. Ken--  nett, for your letter. It is always  a pleasure to hear from a civilized soul.  Respectfully  John Burnside  Dianne  Evans  No profit in street tragedy  The death from AIDS of a  fourteen year old girl in Vancouver is a powerful symbol of  all that is wrong with the priorities of the government in this  province.  It's not that she died, although that is tragic in itself.  It's that, at fourteen, she was on  the street, addicted to drugs and  selling herself for the money to  buy them.  She may be the first such,  child in the province to die from  this awful disease, but she is far  from the only young girl who  plies her trade on the streets or  is beholden to the pusher or the  pimp.  It's easy to hear such a piece  of news and shrug it off with a  bit of a twinge. After all, it happened in Vancouver, what could  that have to do with us?  But those little girls come  from towns just like ours, they  come from our town too and  almost all of them have suffered  either sexual or physical abuse,  usually within their own homes.  And what has that to do with  the government? It has a lot to  do with it. The Socreds, in the  name of restraint, have discontinued invaluable services such  as child abuse teams and family  workers. This has placed an  almost insupportable load upon  the shoulders of those who remain in the ministry of human  resources and this has led to the  situation as it exists now.  There simply aren't enough  personnel to deal with the problem. The problem itself has  been exacerbated by the growing unemployment rate, by the  loss of a coherent plan for the  future of the province.  The government has to accept  the responsibility where it truly  lies - its restraint and lack of vision has created the problem  and they have cut off the  resources to deal with it.  Inhumane, that's what it is. I  suppose, if a fast buck could be  turned off the situation, we'd  see a swift change in priorities*  but little girls dying on the street  don't turn a profit and this government seems set on a course  that denies its responsibility to  its citizens, even the young, the;  sick and the lost souls.  This Moment  Yearning and  Thoughts nl  This moment yearning and thoughtful sitting alone,  It seems to me there are other men in other lands  yearning and thoughtful,  It seems to me I can look over and behold them in  Germanyjtaly, France, Spain,  Of far, far away, in China, or in Russia or Japan,  talking other dialects,  And it seems to me if I could know those men I should  become attached to them as I do to men in my own  lands,  OI know we should be brethren and lovers,  I know I should be happy with them.

The Twilight Theatre serves  the public demand for movie  screen productions, whereas the  proposed performing arts  pavilion will meet the need for  live performance in dance,  drama, and literary and musical  events, as well as providing exhibit space for the visual arts.

A primary childhood task is  the assimilation of information  about the environment; and the  (general use of guns, swords,  [lasers etc. in play seems to in-  idicate that this is a reasonable  tand   probably   necessary   res-  iponse to 'criminal' and 'sanctioned' societal violence, as well  ras to the interpersonal power  struggles   in   the   child's   im-  ���mediate surroundings.  It is not fair to impose upon  our children an unrealistic view  of humanity. That blunts their  own instincts for survival. The  human condition is too profound, complex and contradictory to be dealt with in such a  superficial, and sentimental  fashion.  Children need to be left alone  to resolve things for themselves,  within reasonable limits; while  we as adults imaginatively and  honestly work towards offering  them a grown-up world, of  which war toys will no longer be  an accurate reflection. ���  Laurel Sukkau  I  Public Hearing  PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO  TOWN OF GIBSONS  ZONING BY-LAW NO. 500, 1984  Pursuant to Section 957 of the Municipal Act, a  PUBLIC HEARING will be held in the Municipal  Hall,South Fletcher Road, Gibsons, B.C. on MONDAY, JANUARY 27, 1986 at 7:30 p.m. to consider  By-law No. 500-9, (Zoning Amendment By-law No.  500-9,1985).

North Vancouver-Seymour  Funds raised  Editor:  On behalf of the British Columbia Lung Association, I  would like to extend my thanks  to you and your readers for the  generous support given to the  1985 Christmas Seal Campaign.  Although the campaign does  not officially end until January  31, the British Columbia Lung  Association has enjoyed its  most successful year in the 63  year history of Christmas Seals  in British Columbia. To date,  campaign contributions are up  6.5 per cent over last year's  returns, demonstrating the concern shared by all British Columbians for the fight against  lung disease.  Funds raised through the annual campaign have enabled the'  British Columbia Lung Association to become a leader in programs of research, education  and community services related  to respiratory disease.  Once again, thank you all  very much.  D. Stuart Fraser  President  B.C.

"Why should we fund an  economic development commission .function with 100 per cent  local funding when we can get  provincial help?" he asked.  "We will aU be paying a fair  share - getting the PIE funding  will increase payments for  everyone but only minimally  and there will be that much  more money available," he added.  Gurney is hopeful that a  meeting to be held next Friday  evening with the chairman of  the EDC, Barry Wilbee, the  CDO, municipal representatives  and other SCRD directors will  iron out any other contentious  details in the policy statement,  renamed policy recommendation at the Peterson's urging,  and achieve a level of agreement  between the three governmental  bodies.

All donations  Vfrom the Mot_5|?s.March go to  : "the   Kinsmen Rehabilitation  Foundation, to be used directly  for  aid and  services to the  : physically disabled. :V  Over the years, the Foundation has been very active on the  Sunshine Coast providing  financial and technical aid to  those in need.     :���  In our own community, the  Kinsmen and Kinette Clubs of  Gibsons and District are currently busy mapping routes,  phoning volunteers, hanging  posters and getting their walking shoes ready.  However, we cannot do it  alone. Each year we depend on  many volunteer canvassers from  the commuity. Again, this year,  we are appealing to you, the  people of this community, to  help the disabled by taking only  a few hours of your time to  march on their behalf.  If, you can help us out, you  will be asked to canvas homes in  your own neighbourhood. The  routes are not long, and the  time span includes two weekends, allowing flexibility for the  marchers.  Contrary to popular belief,  you don't have to be a mother  to be a "Marching Mother".  We welcome the help of men  and women, of any age.  I, personally, have been marching for seven years. I believe  in the Mother's March and the  work of the Kinsmen Rehabilitation Foundation. I also  march for selfish reasons. I  know that, at any moment of  any day, I or someone I know,  could suddenly become a part  of the group I seek to help. It  could happen to you, and it  does happen to people right  here on the Coast. The Founda  tion is there to make life easier  again.  If you can't be a Marching  Mother, please help by leaving  your porch light on from January 25, 1986 to February 4,  1986.  If you wish to march, you  can get involved by calling Bill  Sneddon at 886-7059 (evenings);  Rick Simpkins at 885-2412  (evenings); or Haig Maxwell at  886-8158 (daytime).

Insurance  problems  The regional district has joined dozens of municipalities and  regional districts across the province in the difficult situation of  being unable to purchase adequate and affordable liability  insurance.  To date the only insurance  the district has been able to  locate is $1 million at a cost of  $15,000 per annum, with an additional $2 million for another  $13,000. This is in sharp contrast to its previous insurance  which gave the district $5 mill-:'  ion liability at a cost of only  $3,100 per annum.

MEREDITH DOLMAN-  WORKING IN WOOD  I first met Meredith Dolman  a couple of months ago when he  kindly spared an hour to show  me his hobby, working in  wood.  Mr. Dolman works with any  kind of wood in many different  shapes and sizes. He has made  at least 400 table lamps, all large  and, all one of a kind, with one  exception.'At one time he made  lamps from old wooden bowling pins. The rest of the lamps  are different from every. side  because he uses the shape of the  wood and the "feel" of it.  That is a key word, "feel".  Mr. Dolman "feels" the wood  and loves every curve and line.  He has worked in yellow cedar,  cherry, big leaf maple, curly  maple, English walnut, lilac,  yew and olive wood. The olive  wood from central California  requires only two coats of oil  because of the oil in the wood.  He works mainly with a saw  and a lot of elbow grease. He  has made lampshades of old  charts which set off the  beautiful soft glow and lines of  the wood base.  I was shown a piece of  bristlecone pine and was told it  was the oldest wood on earth, at  least it goes back the farthest.  Mr. Dolman can see the  potential beauty in every piece  of wood and his many friends  are constantly bringing him  chunks of trees.  Thank you, sir, for a pleasant  afternoon.  .  i  *iigf^JJ5��^S��?iM^J��!!��5iiM��WSWirii  w.  _________  ���>  _    '   t '    /'.**t  t     *���     * ~  .���);���' ���.

The village is owner- of the upland esplanade but when the  Sechelt boundary was extended north in the 1950's to include  this area, council overlooked applying for the water rights;  "It's an absurd situation," said Alderman Graham Craig  at council. "  Boat ramp applications  being pursued in Sechelt  _.  The Sechelt and District  Chamber of Commerce has set  up a boat ramp committee to  pursue its objective of placing a  facility on Trail Bay for Aqua  West during Expo 86.  Committee chairman Bob  Bowles told Sechelt Council last  week that the chamber would be  willing to pay for the construction of a ramp but needed direction from council before it  could go ahead.  He said there have been some  donations pledged and a trust  fund set up and that he was  eager to raise more funds as  soon as possible. ;'  Two boat ramps are propos- '.  ed in the village's Expo Legacy-r?

A PERFECT HAND  Ed Edmunds of Redrooffs  has been playing crib for many  years and has never been dealt a  perfect hand - until this week.  While playing a game with his  son Owen he came up with the  unbeatable 29 hand and nearly  fell off his chair with excitement.  Well done Ed.  ApLOST OAR  P anyone has come across an  oar washed up on the beach, it  belongs to Roland Hawes of  Redrooffs who would be pleased-to hear from you.  CONGRATULATIONS  |Was pleased to hear the news  that two very special people  received recognition for their efforts on behalf of Branch 69,  the Sechelt Senior Citizens ' Association.  Connie Wilson and Nikki  Weber were both presented with  life memberships of the group  at a recent meeting, much to  their delight and surprise. This  is indeed an honour and these  two recipients are indeed worthy of it.  Nikki and Connie are busy  right now preparing for the next  big Parthenon night on January  25 and they will soon be even  busier when rehearsals start for  the next Halfmoon Hams show.  The date has already been set  for this show which will be a  very special one as it is going to  be the Hams' swan song. The  group have decided to call it a  day and will be putting on this  farewell performance to help  raise some funds towards the  Erin Kelly fund - a cause which  is close to the hearts of all the  Hams.  The date you should mark on  your calendar is April 12 and  the show will be presented in the  Seniors Hall. Will let you know  when tickets will be available.  Some more dates for your  calendar. On Friday night of  January 24 the Welcome Beach  Community Association are  having another Pub Night for  members and friends, then  February 15 there will be a  Valentine dance. More details  later.  GOOD NEWS FOR  THE FESTIVAL  At last week's meeting of the  Suncoast Writers' Forge members were delighted to learn that  W.O. Mitchell has accepted an  invitation to speak at this year's  Festival of the Written Arts in  August. He was unable to come  last year but is making a point  of it for 1986.  Last year Gzowski and this  year Mitchell, which means that  once again the committee will  be faced with the problem of  finding a hall with sufficient  seating capacity for the hundreds of people who will want  to attend.  Another fine speaker at the  festival will be John Gray,  Canada's hottest playwright/-  musical theatre writer whose  hits include Billy Bishop Goes  to War, Rock 'N Roll, and Don  Messer's Jubilee.  He is the author of two  novels, Dazzled and Stage  Fright.  There will of course be  several more speakers and these  will be announced in due  course.  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 apreciated  at at Reno Casino night op  March 1 at Greene Court  followed by a sale of used books  on March 15.  Anyone interested in joining  the Suncoast Writers' Forge or  entering the annual writing contest should enquire at the Book  Store on Cowrie Street.  SCRD seeking  drainage authority  "We must have the authority  to develop a drainage plan and  to set regulations for subdivision," Area E Director,  Chairman Jim Gurney told the  regional board at last  Thursday's meeting, and there  was no disagreement with this  from the other directors.  At the present time the  Ministry of Highways is responsible for many of the regulations which govern drainage,  but these are of a short-term  nature.  However, the ministry is  eager to co-operate with the  regional district and would enforce any by-laws enacted under  the function. The ministry  would also be responsible for  any works which may become  necessary.  function  district is  The 18% RRSP  For more than  15 years.  Industrial Growth Fund is still averaging  more than 18% in annual compound returns.  And that's consistent RRSP growth over the  long term. For more than 15 years. (Over the  past three years, it's averaged more than 19%  annually.)  But, impressive as that record is, there's  much more you should know. Before you buy  any RRSP.  The regulatory  which. the regional  seeking would contain no drainage works but would cover the  entire district and be implemented on a piece meal  basis.

Much of  the work has already been completed in settlement plan studies  Councils  oppose  fuel taxes  Gibsons and Sechelt Councils1  endorsed last week a resolution  asking the provincial and  federal governments to reduce  taxes on all fuel and petroleum  products in an effort to  stimulate the Canadian  economy.  The resolution was drawn up  by the City of Quesnel and was  sent to other B.C. municipalities!  for their support. '  A letter from Quesnel Mayor  Michael Pearce states, "Our  council feels that such a reduction would serve as a symbol of  anti-inflation and act as _  powerful financial stimulant to  the Canadian economy."  Pearce puts the current figure  for total provincial and federal  taxes on regular gasoline at  $30.09 per litre.  A male youth has been charged on five counts as a result of  an incident which took place on  January 9 in the Highway 101  and Shaw Road area. The youth  has been charged with possession of a concealed weapon,  possession of an offensive  weapon, two counts of assault  with a weapon and with  resisting  arrest.

The  guest  speaker  at  the:  meeting will be Harvey Bist of  Sechelt who is the supervisor,  Ministry of Human Resources,  for the Sunshine Coast.  The Sunshine Association's  proposed new logo, shown  elsewhere in this issue of the  newspaper, originated in a request that Ed Charlebbis^ a  director of the association,  made of his friend, graphic artist John Weyburg.  John said, "I began to think  about a logo for the association  first as a favour to Ed, and then  as I learned more of what this  association does to help the  handicapped towards independence, I looked on the  work of designing the logo as  my contribution to their good  work.  "For the logo," John  Weyburg said, "I chose the sun  shining brightly first to signify  the assoication's name,. and  then, more important to provide an uplifting mood, a symbol of hope. The people in the  foreground are the handicapped  looking expectantly to their  community for encouragement.  Once approved by the  Association, the logo will be used on letterhead and in all  printed announcements of the.  association.  "We feel a logo will greatly  enhance community recognition  of our association," the president said.  90TFI REUNION  An elementary school in Vancouver, will hold its 90th reunion on the long holiday  weekend, May 16, 17 and 18.

HOME FOR THE  HOLIDAYS  When Harry Peterson visited  his parents in Gibsons, during  his Christmas school holiday,  he said he had met a former  Gibsons resident now an official  in his Alberta school district.  "EC. 'Ed' Nicholson is the  assistant superintendent in our  school district," said Harry,  "and I'll be seeing him soon  when he visits my classroom."  Nicholson was co-ordinator  of Special Education in the Sunshine Coast school district from  1976 to 1980. From here he  went to the Prince Rupert  school district staff.   .  During his time here,  Nicholson served a term as  Regional Board Chairman.  Gladys Sluis, the newly  elected president of Branch 109,  Canadian Legion, wishes all  members a Happy New Year  and reminds those who have let  it slip their minds that it is time  to renew their memberships.  MISADVENTURES  Mrs. Louyain Lee of Sechelt  tells us that our story of the  misadventures with highland  cattle, endured by Cloe Day, to  remind her of times long ago  when she would look out to see  the long-horned creatures  raiding her apple orchard.  "We lived in Irvines Landing  then and when I saw those long  horns, I had no intention of going out to chase them away. I  just phoned the owners, Jean  and Henry Whittaker to come  and get them," said Mrs. Lee,  and added,  "I would not have minded  very much if the cattle had only  eaten the windfalls. But there  they were, as agile as goats,  standing on their hind legs to  reach our prize apples on the  lower branches."  ERROR TRIVIA  Again a thank you to those  who telephoned about the  grammatical error in the of  December 16 issue. Admittedly  some of my phrasings are  quaint, and I'm glad to have  this noted by you.  The grammatical error is  found in the paragraph just  above the editor's heading Elections.

Why not consider one of  the following volunteer openings for your own active enjoyment and to help someone else  at the same time.  Three volunteers are needed  immediately to assist handicapped children in a swim program  on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons at the Gibsons pool.  Someone is also needed to  help an individual work on  regaining conceptual and  language skills lost in a recent  accident. A couple of hours a  week for approximately three  months will do the job. Orientation and ongoing support will  be provided by a professional  trained in the field.  To register in Sechelt or Gibsons or to find out more, please  call the Volunteer Action Centre at 885-5881.  ���  e a  a  a  ���  ���   ��'t  ��������������������!���������  ....(kg1.72)lb. ���  ea.

Pavilion will be  there with exhibits, programs and a first-class conference  facility designed to advance the B.C. business and  investment story. -  WITH A VISITORS PROGRAM. To take full  advantage of the Expo opportunity, the Ministry of  International Trade and Investment launched a  world-wide marketing effort last fall. This is the Business  Visitors Program���a series of invitations for key business  contacts the world over to visit Expo. Since then, over  30,000 business people in 60 nations have been invited  to the fair and thousands of responses have already been  received.  In addition, 25,000 information packages  highlighting the business potential of an Expo visit have  been distributed through international banks and  airlines worldwide.  CONFERENCE FACILITIES. A M service  conference facility has been created at the Challenge  B.C. building. And at plaza level, a business centre has  been developed for visitors seeking information on B.C.  business and investment opportunities. Both will have  the full information base and staff resources necessary to  tell the story of B.C. business both large and small.  ��� From here, business visitors will move out through  the province as companies all over B.C. work with the  Ministry of International Trade and Investment to  coordinate plant-tours, briefings and business seminars  for our special business guests.  AND A TECHNOLOGICAL SHOWCASE.  Our exhibits themselves are a reflection of B.C. skills and  enterprise. The B.C. Pavilion worked with all industry  sectors to ensure the key stories of B.C. industry were told  to our international audience. Both our traditional  resource and energy sectors and new high technology  industries are presented at the B.C. Pavilion: all carry a  message of opportunity and innovation.  We've fine-tuned our programs, exhibits and  facilities to convey one message ��� B.C. is a confident,  resource-rich province with exceptional trade, investment and business opportunities. It's a message our guests  will remember and act on in the years ahead.

The main  station was located on the corner of Hastings and .Carrall  Streets, where a bank building  now stands. For 75 cents return  you could hop aboard and trundle off to Steveston, the Fraser  Valley or New Westminster,  with a minimum number of  stops.  The cars were of the same antique type that plied the city  streets on central rails in those  days - we used to call them "rattlers". They had a driver and a  conductor like London buses.  The seats were of the wooden  slat type - and hard. The cars  shimmied, shook and banged  when in motion. But they got  you from here to there.  Over the years, the Interurban system fell out of favour. It  was obsolete this: politicians  argued - everyone travelled by  car now. Gradually the runs  were curtailed. Eventually, in  1958, the last Interurban made  its last run and the venerable  rapid transit system was phased  out.  Time passed. The city burgeoned. Automobiles multiplied  like rabbits. Traffic and parking  problems multiplied accordingly  and the congestion increased.  What could be done? The town  planners racked their brains for  a solution to the dilemma.  "You know," offered someone  brightly, "what Vancouver  needs is a rapid-transit system."  Good thinking. But exactly  what sort of system, where  would it run and how would it  be financed? These and other  questions were kicked around  by the politicians for years,  beginning in the days of the '  NDP administration.  Many, schemes were proposed  and discarded including a subway system between Burrard Inlet and False Creek and various  types of monorails along several  suggested routes. The con- -'  troversy dragged on for almost  a decade.  Finally, the present ALRT  (Advanced Rapid Light Transit)  System was agreed upon. It involved totally automated cars  on elevated tracks. Such a --  system has been operating in  Toronto for some years. There  was more haggling over routes  and financing. Eventually these  details were ironed out and construction commenced, involving  the tearing up of certain  downtown streets and the erection of concrete trestles from  the mouth of the old railway  tunnel by the domed stadium,  all the way to New Westminster.  The route followed the old Central Park Interurban Line  through the Commercial area.  There was much complaining  from home owners along the  route but, as usual, progress  had the last word.  The ALRT System (now dubbed more zippily: Sky Train)  was completed about a month  before Christmas 1985. Free  rides were offered for two  weeks beginning in mid-  December, presumably to dry-  run the system. Many people.  took advantage of the freebie  excursion, including Yvonne  and myself. The price was certainly right.  It's Sky Train time, folks.  Yvonne and I grab the Sea Bus  and head across the inlet for our  first flight. (Actually, since we  have used the transit system to  get there, the ride isn't really  free at all but that's life for  you.)  The Sky Train's downtown  terminus is located at the back  of the old CPR terminal, to the  right of the Sea Bus exit ramp.  About 150 people are jammed  between the "bottom of the  escalator and the locked doors  of the underground station. We  learn that the first train doesn't  leave for an hour and elect to  spend the time over coffee at  . Franks For The^Memory, the  most wittily-named hot dog  joint in town. When we return,  the doors are open.  Boarding the Sky Train at  this end of the run is exactly like  boarding a subway, complete  with the pushing and shoving.  We manage to grab a seat in one  of the cars, people squeeze in all  around us, the doors slide shut,  some technician at a control  panel gooses the robot engineer  and the whole automated  schemozzle whooshes off into  the darkness.  The first short section of the  Sky Train, is indeed, a subway.  It runs west to a station at Burrard, then loops east to a second  underground stop at Granville.  Yesterday, there was a glitch iv  the system' and a train w?s  stranded in the tunnel for about  half an hour. Fortunately, they  seem to have solved that problem.  After this brief jaunt through  the bowels of the city, we burst  suddenly into a dazzle of  daylight and the real Sky Ride  begins. After a brief stop  behind the stadium at a station  called - what else? - Stadium, we  zoom up to the trestle, sweep  round the futuristic fringes of  the Expo site, vault over Main  Street and bullet off towards the  suburbs.  The Sky Train isn't quite as  fast as I imagined it would be  but it bops along at a pretty  good clip. And it certainly  doesn't shake, rattle and roil  like the old Interurbans did.  The ride is as smooth as a car  salesman's rap.  There are nine more brief  stops between Main Street and  New Westminster. The view is  fascinating. You get bird's eye,  backyard glimpses of some of  the more obscure areas of Vancouver and Burnaby. One can  sympathize however, with the  many residentys who complained about the intrusion of Sky  Train. You can gaze right  through their windows at some  : points. Their treasured urban  privacy is gone for good."  Before long, we pull into the  New Westminster terminal.  Everyone is ordered out to  make room for the waiting  crowds. Yvonne and I spend  several hours toiling up and  down the notorious hills of the  Royal City. "This place could  use a cable car system more  than a Sky Train," I note.  We pick up an armful o_  books at the well stocked local  library, have lunch at a little  mom and pop cafe of the sort  you hardly see anymore, and  wend our way back to the terminal. The train has been  delayed and once we reach the  platform, there is a considerable  wait. "Traffic overload," informs an official, apparently  meaning that a surfeit of  passengers has clogged up the  system.  Eventually, a train pulls in  and lofts us back to the Vancouver terminal, without incident. We have ridden the new  transit system and survived.  Seriously, I can't think of  much to criticize about the Sky  Train. It does exactly what it is  supposed to do in very efficient  fashion. And, nostalgia aside, it  certainly beats hell out of the  old Interurbans.

MINOR HOCKEY ASSOC.  BEST WISHES FOR 1986?  Every new year brings thoughts of new beginnings,  resolutions, and a sense of hope for a better world. It also is  a time for reflection; of the year past, and the years to  come. This year, perhaps more than any before, finds  many women and men reflecting on the afairs of our province. Here we find a legacy of polarization between the  "left" and the "right" which has intensified so much, that  issues are no longer debated for the good of the people,  but are instead debated tc advance the cause of one of the  two "sides". .  The year 1985 will mean many things to many people,  and I am sure the popular media Will list and publish, or  broadcast, the important events, headline by headline.  One event that they are likely to overlook is the'rebirth of  the Liberal party in B.C. They are likely to overlook this  event because it has occurred without fanfare, by growing  numbers of British Columbians tired of the polarization,  and committed to the building of a strong, independent  British Columbia where people are able to live ancfvvork  together with a restored sense of pride and dignity.  On December 1 of this year, I was successful in obtaining  the Liberal nomination for Mackenzie riding. The events  leading to my nomination have convinced me that I am  now involved in the most exciting prospect for B.C. in  miany, many years. People from all walks of life are uniting  behind the Liberal banner to restore competent, rational  government to B.C. i would like to take this opportunity to  invite, all of you'to join us in this cause. I look forward to  meeting as many of you as possible in the months to come,  and extend to all of you a happy and prosperous 1986.  II  Sincerely,  Gordon Wilson  Liberal Candidate  (B.C.M.L.A.)

Once  ||this is established, they become  Ijyery loyal." This is now the case  with the Tsuruda's customers,  who,   according   to   Dale  .Tsuruda, have been loyally buy-  (ing their products for years.  |    Besides the differing lumber  s sizes required by the Japanese  market,  is their demand  for  quality. The Western grading of  lumber is not acceptable to the  Tsuruda's Japanese customers,  who provide their own custom  specifications.  In addition, they want their  lumber "fresh" - delivered  within two months of cutting.  The Tsurudas keep in close  telephone contact with their  Japanese buyers and visits are  made to Japan at least twice a  year.  Yellow cedar, Bayside's primary product, is favoured by  the Japanese, not only becuase  it closely resembles one of their  native woods now in short supply, but because of its own  beauty and natural preservatives.  w  For Dinner Party Reservations  Also working to Bayside's  advantage is the fact that Canadian law does not allow the export of raw yellow cedar logs,  thus forcing the Japanese to import their yellow cedar in the  form of manufactured lumber.  Dale Tsuruda adds that they  have also been successful in part  because they minimize waste in  their operation. Their Japanese  market accepts lengths as short  as two feet, a length considered  scrap at most mills. Scrap slabs  are cut into firewood for sale at  $19 per pick-up load or  delivered in six cords lots at $29  per cord. Sawdust is sold to  Port Mellon's pulp mill and to  the area's horse stables. A chipper now on site will soon be in  operation to chip the remaining  scrap for Port Mellon.  Dale Tsuruda is optomistic  about 1986, and hopes others  on the Sunshine Coast will think  positively also. ''We encourage  more industry on the Sunshine  Coast, particularly in the wood  industry," he says, adding that  "it can be done on a small  level."  "There doesn't have to be as  much unemployment as there is,  particularly among young people. If they are interested in setting up a small business, I'd like  them to come and see me. If I  can help them out, I will."  by Maryanne West  Last year, you may  remember, was designated by  the United Nations as the International Year of Youth.  It didn't make any great impact as far as I could gather  . either here or in other parts of  Canada. Partly, I suspect  because youth was defined as  those between the ages of 17  and 25, some of whom are still  in school while others have  families of their own; not a  cohesive group and one which  doesn't have any organizations  to go to bat for it.  The years which were devoted  to the needs of women; children  or the disabled had a higher  profile and were useful in promoting understanding, but  there were well organized support groups to pressure governments.  At Coast 10 we talked with a  number of our young people  and with visiting Baha'i' and  Anglican youth groups. What I  remember of those free wheeling discussions which touched  on a wide variety of aspects of  modern society, were the two  most frequently % mentioned,  quite understandably, peace  and educational and job opportunities.  When you're looking forward to adult status and all the  possibilities life has to offer  these matters are of pressing importance to you.  Many generations have  grown up with the threat of war  clouds hanging over them, but  not to the same degree of devastation as today's young people, so it is perhaps a natural  follow up from last year that  1986,has been proclaimed the  Year of Peace.  It hasn't got off to a very  auspicious   start   with   the  Americans shouting threats and  imprecations from their castle  battlements. It must seem to  any sane observer as if both  sides have been watching too  many John Wayne movies.  ..��� No one condones terrorism  or wanton attacks on innocent  people, but in all the shouting,  .   charges a__d counter charges, no  .mention is made of what mot  ivates these violent acts.      *' y}  If you had grown up fcv a  refugee camp in the belief that  your traditional homeland had  been unjustly stolen.from you-  and given to others arid if, as it  appears, ho one cares, you  might also be driven to some  drastic action to gain attention  for your cause. The fact that  violence is always counter productive wouldn't be all that obvious to you. But no one seems  willing to address the problem  of a homeland for the Palestinians and until this matter is settled it will be a safe bet that terrorist acts will continue.  It's amazing how hypocritical  we can be. The Americans also  train terrorists, but of course  they, too, call them freedom  fighters.  There's a lot more to achieving peaceful co-existance on this  small spaceship of ours than an  absence of war. This American/Libyan face-off shows up  yet again the weakness of our  media reporting. We know  almost nothing about Libya, we  see Qaddafi on TV only when  there is some confrontation and  he seems a strange character,  but does anyone ever try to  understand him?  Even in Canada with our  .���-**"  wonderful ethnic mix how  many people do we'know of  Asian or Arab background?  How do we judge someone like  Qaddafi?. What has he done for  his people for him so  revered. It must be, more than  political rhetoric. 6   y  It makes us realize jiist' how  parochial our media are* and  that their priorities of violence  and disaster, which is about all  we get to hear about other  countries, and sometimes even  our own, are not in our best interests, nor are they any help in  ensuring the survival of  humankind. j  If this Year of Peace is to be  of any value, we, the ordinary  people must pressure governments to deal seriously with the  causes of war - brinkmanship in  the Middle East is far too  dangerous. .  yfn^fyj^y!^'y??Siy^yy?yyyK%  Your guide to  the finest in  area dining  i  I  , Gilligan's Pub in Sechelt is not a place you'd take your  loved one to dine if you intended to propose marriage later  in the evening. There are several restaurants on the coast  designed for that.  But as a way to bridge the gap between drafts or enjoy a  light meal after shopping or working in the village,  Gilligan's Pub opens its galley to patrons for lunch and  dinner Monday to Friday and most of the day Saturday.  The menu includes burgers, sandwiches, soups, platters  like French dip and chicken strips and nearly everything  comes with a choice of^salad or fries. There are also daily  specials and always a nutritional soup and salad special for  ,.$3.   .  Non-alcoholic beverages are of course available, as they  always are at the pub. Desserts are not listed on the menu  but pies and puffs are usually on hand and fresh-baked  desserts are free oh Thursdays.  The night we went was a Friday. The pub was full but  not packed. The country and western and satellite sports  are dutifully present but kept at a distance for the benefit  of the unimpressed. Service was smart and fast.  My companion ordered a deluxe cheeseburger which she  proclaimed the best she's had on the coast to date.  I had a clubhouse which was denied excellence by virtue  of the disappointing top layer of chicken. Otherwise  everything was right and tasted good. The fries were as  good as you get anywhere and plentiful.  The house draft is Labatt's Blue and we each had a glass  which went well with the meal.  If you're a fairly light eater or a slightly heavy drinker,  Gilligan's Pub is a definite choice for dinner out. If you  are neither, it offers excellent fare for lunch.  And the arrival of a check for two at under $10, including draft, with The City of New Orleans sung by  Willie Nelson playing dolefully from the bar, is not for  most of us a bad thing.  .  ^  41  NIGHT ON THE TOWN  Andy's Restaurant - Hwy ioi, Upper Gibsons - 886-3388.

The next Wednesday Mixed  Arena  meeting  A public meeting will be held  in Sechelt Arena on Tuesday,  January 21 to further discuss  the potential of the arena  building.  Alderman Anne Langdon,  now responsible for Parks and  Recreation, says the arena will  : run a $25,000 deficit during the  ��� h'ext year. This is mainly  because of the poor economy,  which has resulted in less use of.  ice time, the decrease in enrolment in minor hockey and  figure skating.  Langdon says she doesn't  want the taxpayers of the  Village of Sechelt to bear the increasing burden of the arena  any longer, and she would like  to hear from all Sunshine Coast  residents with ideas for utilizing  this facility.  The meeting is set for 7:30  p.m. at the arena, and everyone  is welcome. Langdon hopes to  form an Arena Advisory Committee to assist with input on the  arena. She is also looking for  proposals to contract out use of  the lounge, meeting room and  concession, and for anyone who  would like to rent the facility  during the summer.  "We have an excellent cement floor in the building  now," Langdon said. "It could  be used for a lot of things from  April through to the end of  September.  Crib Evening is January 22.  Dealing starts at 7:30 p.m.  sharp.  The Annual General Meeting  of the Sunshine Coast Golf and  Country Club will be held at the  clubhouse on Thursday, January 23 at 7:30 p.m.  The meeting will consider the  minutes of the preceding Annual General Meeting, reports  of the standing committees, in  cluding presentation of the annual financial reports and the  report of the club auditor. The  meeting will receive reports of  the officers and elect officers  and directors for the ensuing  year. The meeting will consider  any other business which may  properly come before the  meeting.  All voting members should  make every effort to attend.

What is  French Immersion and why  does it still have such an appeal  to so many parents 20 years  after it's first trial?  French Immersion is the  teaching IN rather than the  teaching OF French. The interi**  tion is that French is learned by  use and not by formal instruction, and thus a French Immersion class is one in which subjects such as mathematics,  history, art, etc. are presented in  French.  Typically, the immersion  teacher is a native French  speaker, who by instructing on  ly in French, attempts to slowly  coax the.class into French use  by example and encouragement.  The students themselves continue to use English until such  time as they feel comfortable  conversing in French. Curriculum guidelines ensure that  Immersion programs meet the  same general objectives as  English language programs.  There are currently several  different types of French Immersion programs being taught  in Canadian Schools. An Early  Total French Immersion program, for example, begins in  Kindergarten or Grade 1, and  all instruction is in French for  the first one or two years.  English language arts and  subjects taught in English are  then introduced at different  grades, until by Grade 6 the  percentage of French/English  instruction is approximately  50/50.  Other   options   that   are  Marsh Society draws  by J. Hind-Smith  If the Friday, January 10  meeting of the Marsh Society in  Sechelt was anything to go by,  interest in natural history and  related subjects is alive and  kicking on the Sunshine Coast.  The speaker, Allison Watt, is  always an interesting and pop  ular visitor and she attracted a  group of about 70 people. Her  subject was Peru where she  spent four months last year studying the botany and whatnot  of that country.  The * whole point of this introduction, apart from giving  the Marsh Society a bit of  publicity, is to bring to people's  attention the fact that Capilano  College is presenting a series of  lectures on five different aspects  of natural history, as it applies to  the Sunshine Coast  The first of the lectures will  be on February 5 and subjects  covered will be flora, geology,  forestry and silviculture,  ecology and fish farming as it  applies to the environment.  It should be an interesting  series and if enough interest is  shown maybe the program  could be developed to include  birding, beachcombing etc.    <  Anyone wishing to register  should contact Capilano College at 885-9310 or register at  the office in Sechelt.  Please note I am in no way  connected with Capilano College but am interested in the  potential that is there for the  taking if the public show  enough interest.  available in some school  districts include; (1) Early Partial Immersion in which the first  years feature 50/50 French/English instruction; (2) Middle or Intermediate Immersion  in which 100 per cent French instruction is introduced in Grade  3, 4 or 5; and (3) late Immersion which begins anywhere  from Grade 6 on. Late French  Immersion is not a continuation  of early immersion but a  separate program for students  who have missed or not chosen  Early Immersion.  Of these options it would appear that Early Immersion is the  most successful. Research has  shown that language learning  poses few problems for the  young child and the child quickly learns to speak with nativelike fluency. .  Why is the program so popular? The principal reason is  that the immersion method is by  far the most successful means of  teaching French to English-  speaking students.  In a bilingual society many  parents feel that the ability to  converse in both Our official  languages is of paramount importance to their children. Consequently there'is much parental  pressure on school boards  across the country to introduce  some kind of French Immersion  program.  Because of the innovative and  radical nature of the initial  French Immersion programs  much research has been done on  their effectiveness.  To summarise these results it  is apparent that French Immersion produces students who are  functionally bilingual i.e. can  converse, read and write in both  French and English.  Research has also been done  on some possible side-effects of  the immersion method. Principally, there was much concern  that Total Immeirsioh might  harm the student's development  of English.  But tests have shown that  while there may be some lag in  English ability in the eairly  years, any lag is easily made up  within two to three years. It has  been shown that performance  by immersion students in other  subjects is equal to that of non-  immersion students.  In conclusion it would appear  that French Immersion is the  best way of producing bilingual  Anglophone Canadians,   f  This is exactly what the group  of Sunshine Coast parents feels,  and they are currently lobbying  our school board to implement  such a program here;,  v.

Coast News, Janaury 13,1986  Foreshore use and aquaculture zoning were once again  topics for discussion at the  regional board meeting last  Thursday, when Chairman of  the board, Area E Director. Jim  Gurney passed the gavel and  spoke on behalf of" his xonsti-  tuents who want to see the  regional district obtain a recreational foreshore lease for the entire waterfront in the area, exclusive of leases already existing.  "Area E is unique - it's a very  small area and there is an almost continuous esplanade of  Crown land (along the waterfront)," Gurney told the board.  "This is a use that has been  identified in the Area E settlement plan, and it is compatible  with upland use," he continued.  This proposal did not meet  with unanimous approval; Area  A Director Gordon Wilson called it "protectionism by isolationism," an effort to protect  (Area E's) backyard against the  intrusion of fish farms.  He reminded the board that it  had made a statement recently  which indicated that it is prepared to look at foreshore leases  and the development of the  foreshore for the entire district.  "This is not the only area  threatened by inappropriate  use," Wilson continued. "I am  not opposed to protection, but  this blanket foreshore lease will  force undesirable use into other  areas. Let's face it, there's inadequate W-l zoning (under  By-law 264) and none in Area  A."  Director Norm Peterson said  that there were only small lots in '������  Guilty plea ori  sex abuse  Robert NOyes has pleaded'  guilty on 19 counts involving  the sexual abuse of children and  will appear for sentencing on  January 20.  Noyes was a teacher on the  Sunshine Coast at Langdale and  Davis Bay elementary schools as  well as at Gibsons Alternate  School but it was not until he  moved to Ashcroft as principal  of a school there that he was  finally charged with these. ofT  fences. -���"...������.  ' He was identified as a pedophile in Coquitlam on the  complaint of a parent, although  public health administrator, Dr.  Blatherwick of Vancouver, has  said that he advised the authorities in that district some eight  years ago of Noyes' problems.  In a press release from School  District 4^,'the problems of notification of future employers is  addressed.  ���Why,' the release asks, 'can  not that information be communicated to future employers  in situations that are goijig to  \  inyolve contact with children?' ;  The new Provincial Task  Force Of the B.C. School Trustees Association on child.abuse  that was requested by; members  of the boards of both School  District 46 and Ashcroft to deal  with this problem is presently at  work and the chairman of the  local board, Don Douglas, has  indicated that he will release  their progress reports as they are  made available.  The board is awaiting the findings of the task force to give it  a direction to pursue.  To date the task force has  identified major issues concerning the adequacy of present legal framework, the adequacy of  government and school board  administrative procedures, the  adequacy of present professional practices and of prevention and treatment programs.  The task force, which includes among its members, secretary-treasurer of School  District 46 Roy Mills, is anxious  to establish a balance between  the rights of the individuals involved in child abuse cases  without losing the primary  focus on the protection of the  child.  Insurance  problems  Continued from page 5  ing that it was. not taking out  any liability insurance, due to  the ten-fold, increase in  premiums, and the impossibility  of obtaining adequate coverage.  Sechelt Council took the  same course when it was quoted  $10,000 for $1 million coverage,  and is nOw without imurance._  "Compared to.last year, it's  three times the premium for 20  per cent of the coverage," said  Alderman Bill Forman. '  the area and a large amount of  Crown land, none of which is  suitable for fish-farming.  A foreshore development  meeting to take place in the near  future will be identifying areas  of prime recreational value,  Wilson said, and these areas will  be zoned as such to protect their  use.  "The Sunshine Coast must be  treated as a whole, not just as  isolated groups," he stated.  "As soon as pockets of people  start taking an 'I'm alright,  Jack' attitude, the harder it will  be to get comprehensive adequate water zoning."  Gurney took exception to the  inference that he would ignore  the rest of the Coast were Area  E successful in its application,  and expressed his dedication to  getting the foreshore problem  ironed out.  Area D Director Brett  McGillivray said that he could  understand Wilson's point of  view, but that he personally did  not have any problem with ac-  ! cepting   Gurney's   proposal,  which he felt represented only  one set of strategies.  "Zoning is not the only  answer and this may be another  option to try," he said..  Hopkins Landing is another  area where such blanket zoning  may be desirable Area F Director John Shaske suggested and  Area C 'Director Jack Marsden  wondered if it might not be a  good idea for the entire Coast.  Wilson remained unconvinced.  "It's great if everyone can get  the same treatment, but you'll  get people from other areas saying, 'they did it there, why not  here?' We need a unified view, a  comprehensive plan," he added.  The planning department has  been instructed to draw up an  application for the lease to be  discussed at the next regional  district planning meeting, this  Thursday.  !
