Bargaining started on January 31  and was finished by April 6,  CPWU local president Steve  Holland told the Coast News.  "Last time we bargained it  took 14 months," Holland said.  "We started earlier this year to  give the bargaining process a  fair chance. It was to try to bring some stability to the company so that they would not lose  orders because of the prospect  of a strike."  The company seems .to have  appreciated this concern,  Holland continued, because an  agreement has been reached  that the union is willing to  recommend to its-membership  for acceptance.  Although the, full details of  the package will not be released  until members .have been informed themselves, Holland  said that there has been substantial improvement in pensions,  job security and seniority and  the contract language has been  tightened up, The two year agreement will see a zero pay increase in the first year,but an  across the board increase in the  second year .-  "What,we had to give was  -. more running time for the company. They-will now have fewer  shutdowns," Holland explained. "Normally the mill has shut  down for six days, but now; it  will only be four days and they  workers of America (IWA).  "This gave us a chance to put  some money into our  pensions',.'';,1 Holland said.  "Usually we bargain to a point  and then the IWA takes over  and takes it to settlement. Maybe this will lead to the pulp  unions taking the lead in  bargaining."  The Canfor mill at Port  Mellon has no newsprint,  Holland said, which has put it  in a difficult financial situation,  but now orders are coming in  for pulp and lumber and things  are looking up.  "Both sides recognised what  it meant to reach an early settlement. Now they (Canfor) have  a good clean two years and  three months without labour  problems to get back on their  feet," Holland added.

"This means a lot to these  companies - it saves them huge  amounts of money," Holland  said.  The CPWU had restructured  its caucus and this helped a lot  in what Holland called a "hard  round of bargaining." It is the  first time that the pulp unions  have reached an agreement before the International Wood-  Centreoh. Friday,  April  18,  from 12 noon till 5 p.m.  The third and last of the informational meetings is  scheduled on Saturday, April  19, from 10 a.m. till 2 p.m. in  the municipal hall in Sechelt.  Members pf the restructuring  committee will be on hand at  these times and locations to  answer questions from the  voting public.  The proposed  restructuring  would see, if the May 3 referendum result is affirmative,, the -  municipality of Sechelt become  the largest municipality on the.  Sunshine Coast. The land area  would increase from 1260 acres  to 9540, the population would-  "rise from 1125 to 4800, and the;:  tax base would increase from an .  assessment base of $57 million"  to'approximately $195 million.  j__��__fcfr_tl_*t>,V�� .*-ii_-f' i'.    *     _��_   --i     .     ,  -,ss^ijr     ,_ *^;  TheTarbas presently outside  the village which are affected'  are West Sechelt, Selma Park,  Wilson Creek, East Porpoise  Bay, Sandy Hook-Tuwanek.

Al Lloyd had his money out in an ins-  ;{tant to clinch the deal.  lAnother 20 years for Kleindale  ;'; g.     '."   .. .        . ' -.'���'. '    - '  Cemetery reborn  J||; The Kleindale Cemetery was  |||old by the Sunshine Coast  gftegional Board to the Kleindale  ^Cemetery Society last Thursday  ifiight for the princely sum of  ��>ne dollar.  y$':, A delegation, consisting  of  ;$im   Frizzell,   Al; Lloyd   and  "Ijenry Hunt appeared before  4he board to tell of the progress  that has been made in clearing  and  improving the' Kleindale  :#ite. '.  .  The   Kleindale   Cemetery  Society has now been incorporated, Lloyd told the board  ;J^hd by-laws and constitution  . l|rawn up and registered.  J   "Now we want to run the  jpemetery," he said.  .   Much work has-been done by  .volunteers  and society mem  bers. Lloyd had a list of expenditures which indicate that more  than $15,000 worth of services  and work have been donated by  the community.  Local machine operators,  Ken Klein, Ray Phillips and Ray  Hansen, have "been  wonderful", Lloyd told the  board, adding that Frizzell had  been able to provide many  hours of community work by  young people when he was  Community Service Placement  officer.  The two acre site has a potential life of perhaps 20 years, according to Lloyd and there is  good depth of top soil for burials, except in the top corner.  "We could make a pet cemetery up there," Lloyd joked.  The society wanted the board  to either sell or lease the site to  them because all the work that  has been done has been accomplished without the legal right to  do so.  "I think you would be discharging your duty by turning it  over to us," Lloyd said, and the  board agreed.  "You are to be very much  commended for your efforts,"  Chairman Jim Gurney told  Lloyd. The regional board will  assume legal costs involved in  the exchange of title and will  also get in touch with the Cemeteries Division to ask that the  site be re-opened for use. A  copy of the letter will be sent to  Dan Devlin as authorization to  conduct funeral services at the  cemetery.  A new Economic Development Commission (EDC) has  been appointed by the regional  board.'  Representing the Sechelt  Chamber of Commerce is John  Glover, and the Gibsons and  District Chamber of Commerce, John Burnside, while the  other members are Joan  Cowderoy, Bruce Mosley and  Aft Giroux.  In making the announcement  at. last Thursday's regional  board meeting, Chairman Jim  Gurney said that the board  } would consider amendments to  the EDC by-law which would  allow the committee to expand  its membership.  Ron Neilson, representing the  Sunshine Coast Labour Council, was in the audience and he  expressed his disappointment to  the board that no representative  from the Labour Council was  oh the committee.  "We represent 1500 members  on the Coast," Neilson told the  board. "We were involved in  the EDC before, in the job  strategy, in the Employment  Development Society, when it  was very difficult to get representatives from the Chambers  and now they have two."  Gurney told Neilson that it is  very possible that the commission may wish to consider an increase in membership but he  said that appointing people who  directly represent special interest  groups could lead the sectoriza-  tion of the commisssion, which  he feels would be to its detriment.  Only five members are permitted by the current by-law.  During discussion Area A  Director Gordon Wilson  brought up an issue of concern  about the process which had  taken place.  "My impression is that the  meeting (held to select the EDC)  last Friday was in camera in  nature," Wilson said. "What  really occurred is that a large  number of very community  minded people put their names  forward, and these were not  made public. Then we read (in a  local publication) that only six  names had been put forward  and only one name had been  left out. -,-:'-;y  "This doesn't reflect what  happened,'' Wilson continued.  "How can this misinformation  get into the public view?  "What it does is prevent the  commission walking out with a  clean slate and getting on with  the job," he added:  "If confidentiality is going to  be breached, let's at least get the  truth out.1'  Gibsons plans  to celebrate  Two celebrations will mark  the 100th anniversary of Gibsons.  First will be May 24 - a  celebration of the actual landing  of George Gibson, whose  descendants will partake in a  staged re-enactment of his arrival. As well, a plaque will be  unveiled on the seawall, the  Centennial Flag will be hoisted  up the flagpole at Pioneer Park  and 1886 prices will obtain for  refreshments.  July 1 will be the day of the  town picnic. One giant birthday  cake will be served, probably at  Brothers Park, where there will  be scrolls handed out to long  time residents of the town and  surrounding areas, and there  will be fireworks at night.  Sheila Kitson, president of  the Chamber of Commerce,  who has been delegated by-  council to plan the celebrations,  told council last week that her  list keeps growing and people  keep approaching her with new"  ideas.  Some of them, like prizes for  the Garden Club and the proposed treasure hunt, will require  money, she said, and council  confirmed that $9500 was still  unspoken for in Centennial  funds  Clean-up time  April 15 to May 15 will be official Pick-Up and Clean-Up  month in Gibsons.  The Mayor will proclaim it tomorrow at council and  Chamber of Commerce president Sheila Kitson will work  with Alderman Jack Marshall, who is chairman of public  works, to co-ordinate a continual clean-up of the town for the  pre-tourist period.  The chamber is considering giving awards to people for  outstanding work done.  \t  n  ?_  .3  _l  i  _!.  ��  If  '8  j V  *-il  -    if  fi  .1  fi  (.  i:  * i Coast News, April 14,1986  Congratulations  After the history of strikes and lockouts of the past few  years, the entire community must be pleased and relieved  to hear of the success of negotiations between the pulp  workers and. the management of the pulp and paper industry.  World fairs may come and go, but that big pulp mill  down at the end of the road is of crucial importance to the  economic well-being of the Coast.  Congratulations to all involved in the recent fruitful  deliberations.  It is never too late to hope that the new spirit of cooperation evinced between the pulp and paper industry  and its workers will be emulated in other sectors of the  Sunshine Coast. In tough times we should be standing  together, not trying to tear each other apart.  An error  Ron Neilson, former Gibsons alderman and spokesman  for the Sunshine Coast Labour Council has a point when  he objects to the exclusion of his group from the recently  appointed Economic Development Council.  We realize fully that the SCRD was doomed to be  damned no matter what decision it made, much of the  criticism being as usual misinformed, and some of it  malicious.        ���       -;-'-r. .^-',. ���?  Still, Ron Neilson personally has provided support and  a service in the previous incarnation bf the EDC and was  one of those who did not run off when the Sunshine Coast  Employment Development Society ran into early difficulties and surely had as much of a constituency as any  one named.;.;..; .���;������; .'���  The argument that special interest groups would not be  recognized is both inaccurate and absurd. Some special interest groups hayeb^n recognized. The Commission  would have beena richer representation of the economic  lifeof -the Coast.'.were: the trade unions represented.  It is an insist and an error which should be rectified  without delay. It is when the special interest groups face to  face, are .compromising and co-operating, as in the Port  Mellon settlement, that progress will be made.  �����  -f  5 YEARS AGO  Directors of the Sunshine Coast Regional District  .listened with polite skepticism last Thursday night as  - representatives of Five-A Holdings Ltd. of Calgary outlined a proposal for a 134-unit hotel, condominium,  shopping centre and office complex on District Lot  1401, directly opposite the Langdale ferry terminal.'  Brian Stelck, alderman on Sechelt council, director  on the regional board and businessman, has a new title.  He was unanimously nominated as a candidate for the  -; British Columbia Social Credit party in the Mackenzie  riding and will stand in the next provincial election.  10 YEARS AGO  Commenting on a recent announcement made by  Education Minister Pat McGeer to the effect that local  school districts would be responsible for increased cost  in education, School Trustee Claus Skiekerman told the  board last week that "it is very difficult to do' anything  else but lay off teachers". As many as 42 teachers may  be affected. --  The Ministry of Health has decided that the Halfmoon  Bay ambulance will definitely remain at its present location until a new ambulance station is opened at the new  Pender Harbour Health Clinic.

Pat Lowther  Carl's perspective  A toast to  risk-takers  by Carl Chrismas  A couple of years ago wheh  fish farm fever struck the Sun-v  shine Coast, the rush to file on  foreshore for leases was compared to a modern gold rushif  Many excited entrepreneurs  thought so too. Today, the  possibility of finding a suitable  site with a year round creek for  domestic and/or hatchery use  are very slim indeed. The last;  dozen or so ��� sites that had  possibilities are now under application so there is little, if any,  to choose from in these inlet  waters.  One of the early prospectors  who staked a. claim which led to  the so-called gold rush was  Bjorn Skei, a successful plumbing contractor in Sechelt. Tired  of the. fat race and claustrophobic crawl spaces, he fell  under the.spell of his friend and  countryman, Oddvin Vedo, expounding on the joys of fish  farming as in Norway!  At the start, a quiet life of  feeding hungry fish on the  waters of his beloved inlet, appealed to Kim as a nice little  family business. With two or  three hundred grand of his own  resources and a little help from  the bank to carry him to the sale  of his first fish, it looked like a  cinch. But like Topsy, that little  business has just growed and  growed!  One of the contributing factors to that growth has been the  unexpected, high ; cost of site  development, float and pen.  construction, arranging for the  purchase of smolt and tonnes  and tonnes of feed to grow the  fish to the ultimate consumer.  Many other farmers got into  the same predicament when the  banks suddenly decided they  needed more collateral and  security before they would come  up with the desperately needed  funds.  The provincial government  agreed to back their notes under  one of their development programs, then a few months down  the road the minister decided  the fish farmer didn't meet their  criteria and cancelled the program.      ���  It hit many of them very hard  and in Bjorn's case, forced him  into his only alternative. He  headed for Norway as a possible  source of salvation.  The Bergen Bartz organization in Bergen, with Oppdret  Services Limited handling their  Viking Sea Cages in B.C., took  a look at Bjorn and his operation, liked what they saw, and ���  provided all the backing he required to bring his fish to  market. -."��������  It's no secret that in doing so  they had a good chance of picking up some of the $50 million  dollars in this burgeoning in  dustry developing in the greater  Sunshine Coast area.  . The upshot of all this was  that Bjorn's nice little family  oriented business is well on the  way to becoming a million  dollar operation and all going  well, could result in this prospector realizing that po[ of  gold that lay at the end of his  rainbow.  One of the fascinating questions that arise from a sudden  decision by men like Bjorn,  secure in a good business, a fine  wife and three sons, to jump the  traces so to speak and take as  big a gamble as any gold rusher  on the Chilcoot Trail heading  into the unknown dangers of  the gold fields!  It isn't the big corporations  nor the wealthy that risk their  hard dollars to develop these so-  called cottage industries. As in  the early days of logging when  the railroad loggers got into  high country too steep for rail,  they let the trucking contractors  risk their necks and equipment  on the steep grades until they  knew what the costs and operating technique were all about.  Then when the contractor was  in a position to make a dollar,  they put in their own equipment.  The same will happen to  many of the fish farmers as cash  flow problems catch up with  them. There will be dollars to  ���i  keep it alive if the terms ar$  right. . :*  But Bjorn is well on his wa#  to viability and reasonably corn*  fortable with his position, afi  things considered. ;���+  A short time ago, Lucy and -J  shared a toast with Bjorn ah^  Ingrid on the occasion of his fif��  tieth birthday, relaxing on t%  sundeck of his floating home ifr.  Sechelt Inlet, anchored with hijs.  fish pens in Big Bear Bay whicft  was named after his CB. hah.;  die. -;-#'  ���''.-" ���-"������: , ': : ;V-���������:$  After a year of preparatior|;  and another of feeding and nur��  sing his hungry charges* he haiK  slimmed down to a mere 22(1;.  pounds, a healthy tan on his svfc  four frame, and a proud glint ijt;  his eye as he surveyed his littl|^  domain. Pa Cartwright ���'bjjfr  Bonanza fame couldn't havjfi  been more proud of his rancH|ij  herds and grown sons thaj|i  Bjorn that day! $��  He and.his family knew thgp  risks of his venture, but as Tor|��  his number two son remarked  later,  "If the whole shebang:  was to be sucked down the hol$��  he is pouring feed into, this ven>��  ture would still be the best thingj^  that ever happened to old Dad!

Creek residents have S��ggltig ����J&eertas  i.  ^Editor's note: A copy of the  following letter was received for  publication.  iPear Representative:  |^|The! members of our Associa-  pdji are greatly concern��! that  |me clear cut/patch logginp that '.  lis being planned for Mt; Elphin-  jstbne is an unacceptable style of  Jibrest  management  and  will  ijjeflfd to many problems for local  l&fesidents. '  ft*; 4We realize that forestry must  4fajke place on the mountain and  -rave could support an alternate  _2$wuVesting method such as selective logging.  We are asking you to investigate this situation for bur  community so that our residents  can feel confident that the  mountain will .be' an asset rather  than a deficit in the future.  Our concerns are as follows:  -.-������.'.,!, Water'���".- ^hundreds of  residents rely on creeks and  shallow wells for .household  water. Many households: hold  water licences on -the;-creeks.  The summer of 85 saw many  wells dry up and all the creeks  trickle to an all timejpw. We  feel that hot only a dry season  was a factor but also-the already  heavily logged mountain top  and backside. Should we continue tb clear cut and add to an  already, existing problem?  2. Salmon - as our creeks are  trending toward drying up in  the summer, they also freshet in  the fall and spring thus destroying much of; the salmon spawn  in'the- creek mouths. Our area  relies on the salmon spawns to  attract thfe sports fishing industry "to our area.. Many  residents moved here for the;  fishing arid the clear cut method  of forestry adds to the demise of  , this ; valuable.:y sport. ,���^.      ^  ;.-.-  Canada must take peace  ��j During the whole history of  fmankind, war has always  Hollowed war. But enough peo-  j;ple have remained to generate  lithe next one,'- ,  & Wise men of all nations have  [been,warning us that we have  |i\0_&reached the time that wars  st cease,. or humanity- will  inate on this planet."  These responsible people are  convinced that  a major war  would  likely  escalate  into  a  nuclear holocaust:  We  have  evidence  of the  horrendous  suffering  of sur,���,  vivors who were hot fortunate  to meet instant death, at the  outset.  We all get our information  from the same sources. Did we  not hear in the public media,  that .President Reagan might  very well decide on a "Preemptive Strike''?, and did we  not,also hear him invoke God's  authority to "Press the  Button"?  May God forbid? Surely it  must have been a misquote?  Surely a Christian leader of a  great nation would not do it.  Canada is a sovereign country. We must accept our responsibility and announce to all the  world that we will not permit  any further testing of nuclear  missiles and that, nuclear arms  will riot.be permitted in Canada.  Let us follow the example of  our sister nations, New Zealand  and Australia.   ...-. ,  The world is waiting for the  sunrise: and if we believe in  prayer, let us ask that the Holy;  Spirit will guide us.

Some of us often made our  .way to his place in the early  ;(1960's from our homes at  ?)3ower Point to buy tomatoes,  frjpe pri the yine, and monstrous.  *eabbages and onions.  II His place theri was a plastic-  ^cpvered frame, his "green-  ^liouse," built over a dug out  iTtrench.  *_ "I find this quite comfortable," he said to me, "since I  had to abandon the family  fhpme nearby.  It was falling  down around my ears."  ;^ This was the same frame, Pim  _$iu-e, that he later c��vered with  his hand-split cedar board roof  arid walls. It was home enough  for his senior years y he was then  just;^?iiitp; his; ricnd seventies.  JBrbm there He could hike the  p\d skid road down the ravine  Jpe to what is now Charman  SoadinyGibsons. This trail w|s  jpi t^ojnSosite side of; the  $avine'sirom the ^esen^IngHis ���  :-|^^V;'_^v.S-;;:i-^  j?fMr. .Channan would have  smiled, I'm sure, had he heard  his dug-put greenhouse called a  "pioneer" home.; His pioneer  home which he built after his arrival on his place was a substantial house.  p A.J. "Jack" Charman can  well be remembered for his gardening skills of which he was  justly proud. He told me that  one of his seed potato varieties  that he had developed had been  a|cepted by the Federal Depart-  nfcnt of Agriculture for regi-  Jixatibn. His son, George, now  bf Duncan has told his sister,  ^brence Wiren of Reed Road,  that their father developed 26  varieties of seed potato and that  it|was likely no. 13 was the  registered one.  i^The reluctance of Town  Council to accept this gift of a  '.pioneer*' cabin -; a gift that  may have numerous maintenance costs '������-.' is understandable. Is this not something a  yplunteer group could sponsor  and care for?  Perhaps with some assurance  of organized help arid interest in  that regard the council could be  encouraged to look upon the  gift with approval.  The neighbours next door to  the cabin, Mr. arid Mrs. Star-  buck have already offered  assistance to the project, and  Larry Penonzek, surveyor with  an office in Gibsons, has also  volunteered his services.   ���..,  At another week's reporting,  we intend to revive some  memories of A.J.C. (Jack  Charman's pen name) whose  essays revealed a keen observa-'  tion of nature in a delightful  style of writing. Fred Cruice,  former publisher of the Coast  News has said that- it was a  special privilege to print  A. J.G.'s articles. He. added that  it brightened his day to see Jack  Charman come in the the news,  office, pack on back and copy  in hand. kyk--r  bcxjk __aije_  The   Gibsons   and   District  Public Library, will hold a book  sale tliis Saturday, April 19 in  $hi Marine Room from 10 a.m..

BC     VON 2H0  - ���" ~ GOVERNMENT LICENSED'  The White lower society is a  group of 25 local people who  seem dedicated as much to contemporary civic labour as any  kind of Medieval activity.  On Saturdays for almost the  past year, society members have  gotten together in the wooded  parkland behind the Gibsons  Swimming Pool and hand-  cleared the alder and brush for  : an archery range. Their 3000  _hburs of work have uncovered  an unexpectedly-beautiful spot  in a swamp and now the society  is working on the land as a town  park, picturing it dotted with  tiny lakes drained from its bottom and accessible from the end  of Davis Road.  Jovial as a former White  Tower assassin, John Reynolds  brought the idea to Gibsons  Council last week, pointing out  that the town's consultant  engineers have suggested retention ponds be dug on the site to  create drainage for the head-  '.'��� waters of Charman Creek.  He asked that the town provide some workers to assist in  making the ponds, provide fill  and help divert the water draining at the Davis Road entrance  into recesses that are already  ; dug. Jobs could be made, he  said, under the Federal  Challenge '86 Summer Works  < Program, while volunteer  labour would continue from the  society, which would afterward  use the park for occasional and  pre-arranged archery shoots.  Council, and later the same  day the Elphinstone Recreation  Commission,   re^ fa  vourably to the idea and are  awaiting more information.  The White Tower Society was  formed; in.  1973   and'. is   a .  registered non-profit society for  medievalists, who have revived  such customs as making crossbows, chainmail and authentic  costumes of the years between  1000 and 1599.

He encountered a "touch-  and-go" situation while surveying for a Texas oil company in  Colombia. The location was on  the plains east of the mountains  and close to Venezuela, Temperatures were around 35  degrees celcius arid Neil did a lot  of sweating.  The company had issued Neil  with a tourist visa, and there he  was, working in an area where  there are no tourists. But he had  been assured by immigration oh  landing that there would be "no  problem".  As it turned out, there were  plenty of problems and Neil  found himself being interviewed  by the local police, all of them  toting guns. The following week  it was the "Tourist Police" with  even bigger .45's.  -They too assured -him that  there;would be '.no problem"  and^that he just had to go to  iBpgota for an iriterview where  they would review his travel  documents and everything  would be OK.  Neil was then very officially  returned to Bogota, very officially interviewed and fingerprinted and finally very officially kicked out of the country.  There was talk of going to  Venezuala to get a work permit  and return to work, but having  gone through some pretty scary  incidents and hearing stories of  20 to 30 people killed per week  between the army, guerillas,  and drug runners, Neil wisely  decided that he was no longer  interested and" headed home via  Miami.

A study was undertaken by an independent consulting firm and their results were presented at a Public  Information meeting v" June 17,1985.  The Restructuring Committee invited and received many questions and comments  about restructuring from area residents. This has resulted in further research and  rigorous negotiations with the Provincial Government. Efforts to secure additional  funds for the new municipality have met with success, since the last proposal.  For example:  1) Road Maintenance ��� Increased from $129,000 to $179,000 per year for a five  year period. Total increase of $250,000.  2) Per Capita Grant - This new grant offered by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs  of $150.00 per capita produces over a period of three years approximately  $555,000;   ���     . :  ;. .'.,/,���/���  3) Land -The request for a grant of 160 acres of Crown Land for future use in the  ���district municipality is under consideration by the Ministry of Lands, Parks &  ', Housing, and was favourably met by the Minister of Lands, Parks & .Housing.  The proposal is now ready to be put to a vote. A REFERENDUM to allow residents both within the  Village and those to be included from outside the Village to vote on this issue, will be held on  SATURDAY, 3 MAY, 1986. Residents will be asked to vote yes or no on the proposed boundaries.  To be approved, the restructuring referendum must be supported by more than 50% of all votes  cast.--'  *. : ���'   -     -<H.

Selma Park/Wilson Creek (Area 2) Sandy Hook -Tuwanek (Area 4)  Facts About the Existing Village  and the Proposed New Municipality  The size of the municipality would increase sevenfold, from 2 sq. miles to 15 sq.  miles. The population will quadruple, there being three times as many residences  outside Sechelt as there are within existing municipal boundaries. Assessment,  which can be generally defined as the total market value of all properties within  an area, would be increased 3.5 times. However, 90% of the commercial and industrial assessment is Ib^c'ated within the existing Village boundaries.  '��� :''       ''.--.*'   ���           .'"'

My tax bill last year was approximately $ 4 SKJ.-W.JWhat will be the impact  on my tax bill if the boundaries were expanded. >       T"-  AlThe new municipality would be eligible for additional Revenue Sharing Grants  from the Provincial Government. Increasing the population from 1,125 to 4,800 .  would result in an additional $146,000/yr. in revenue to the municipality. Additional funds that would need to be raised to provide services to the entire  municipality would be offset by contributions from Victoria. Therefore, your tax  bill would remain around $490.00 or could even be slightly less, provided the level  of services is not significantly increased.  Q-I'm also concerned about taxes in the long term. What can I expect to pay in  three, five or seven years down the road?  A:it would be difficult, if not impossible, to estimate your tax bill in the next three,  five and seven years, no matter where you lived. The Province will provide various  restructuring grants to the new municipality for the first five years above and  beyond the $146,000 Revenue Sharing Grant, to assist in start-up costs. The province has also offered $179,000 per year for road maintenance and a $150 per  capita grant. This would amount to an additional $1.45 million revenue over the  next five year period.. In addition, in the first year there will be a $200,000 tax  rebate to the new municipality, if incorporation of the new municipality takes  place before June 30th, 1986.  Excess funds can be deposited in a reserve account, collect interest and be used  at a later date for capital improvements as future Councils see fit. The long term  outlook appears to be promising.  QlWhat about those of us who would become part of the new municipality. I own a  $50,000 assessed house and last year my tax bill amounted to $384.00, $100 less  than a similar assessed house in the Village. What am I looking at if I am to be included within the hew municipality?  Al Provided that the same level of service that presently exists in your area is maintained, a $50,000 assessed home would pay about $370.00. The reason for holding.  '��� the line is the additional $1461000 that would be made available to the municipal!- t  ,. A .ty under.the Revenue Sharing Prpgram. However,,there can be no exact promise''  7,' .as to .what your tax bill will actually be. A newly elected council will begiven the  '-..   responsibility of establishing budgets and setting tax rates.  Q-Describe the type and level of service that is anticipated for residents of the proposed riew municipality.yy:yky  All) Water: No change'in water rates is anticipated. The Regional District is expected to continue this function.  2) Sewer No change in sewer rates is anticipated for service to Village  residents which is presently provided by the Regional District. If an extension  to the system becomes a requirement, the costs would be borne by the  residents who would directly benefit. ���.,-,'  3) Garbage Collection: No change in garbage collection costs is expected.  4) Fire Protection: The boundaries of the proposed new municipality coincide with those of the existing Fire Protection Area. Therefore, no additional  costs are foreseen.  The above four answers must be qualified, that is to say Restructuring will not increase the costs of those service. However there is no guarantee the entities supplying these services will not increase or decrease charges from time to time.  5) Police: Neither the Village nor the Regional District are currently responsible  for paying policing costs. Until the population of a municipality reaches 5,000, .  the costs are borne by the Provincial Government. Under a restructured  municipality with a population of 4,800, the municipality will not pay for police  services. Once the population exceeds 5,000, the costs become the  responsibility of the municipality. Currently the Provincial Government provides phase-in grants to assist local governments ih assuming the additional  costs. Police costs are not likely to increase before 1991. The reason for this  Is, even if the population is over 5,000 at the next census (June 3rd, 1986), there  would be no policing costs for five years as it is paid for under the Ministry of  Municipal Affairs Restructuring Programme; after which, there is a three year  phasing.n of policing costs to the new municipality.    ;;  -6) Library: As with fire protection, the boundaries of the proposed new  municipality are the same as the library's catchment area. At present, the  Village of Sechelt provides a grant to the Library Society. In an expanded  municipality, more people, would share library costs.  7) Arena* With the new municipal boundaries, the cost of operating the arena  wouid^jie borne equally throughout the expanded Sechelt area.  8) Roads: The maintenance of all roads except for major arteriais would  become the responsibility of the municipality. Currently, roads outside of the  Village ��re maintained by the Ministry of Transportation and Highways. A  grant,ofi��1 79,000 peryear for the first five years would be provided by the  Ministry/.. -,.'-���':,^';-'  9) Administration & Procedures: In the event of restructuring taking  -   place, certain staff and physical changes will be necessary. A new Council  consisting of a mayor land six aldermen would be elected after restructuring     -.  approval. They represent all people in the area served. Additional staff and     -���  facilities would necessarily be provided to meet service needs. These addi-  tiofls'jriave been taken into consideration in preparing budget costs.y y\ ,.y  " U__p#iwill land use and zdj.irtgrmatters'__effected by'fh^ 'forrriatidri' 6.f!Vn _��to ������ *  -. municipality?    ���������'-.'.-: ��� ���-^^y-^r^i^^^^y   '     s,;y -kyi' y  ."ykyyy^-.w ;-.

QrWhat are the advantages of increasing the size of the municipality?  AlA larger municipality woUld result in a broader tax base. Secondly, the larger the  :'f municipality, the more clout it carries in negotiations with senior levels of government. > ���y!y:'~-"'::y':''���: .-'���-'"���'��� *     ���    ���     '.

President of the Sunshine  Coast Teachers' Association  Bill Forst told the board that the  teachers are now "very comfortable with negotiations," although things had been going a  little too slowly in earlier weeks.  In a conversation with the  Coast News Forst said that the  main point of contention with  the board was the negotiation of  the seniority clause.  ��'JLf we can't get the board to  renew the seniority clause Bill 35  will go into effect," he said. Bill  35 is the government's own seniority clause which says that  current demonstrable ability is  the criteria for advancement.  "We already have had a case  (in the lower mainland) of a  teacher who was dismissed after  only one principal's report,"  Forst explained. "Usually if a  teacher gets an unfavourable  report he/she has time to make  an effort, to improve. Normally  three principal's reports are  needed before dismissal.  "We were worried that the  board was dragging its feet a little on this," Forst said. "But  now things have picked up."

The day before when the sun was shining and  ysummer seemed just around the corner I had been out mowing my  meadow; At the end of each pass i mentally stuck a sheep On the lawn.  At what seemed the millionth sheep I retired from the fray and collapsed  - thinking of tomorrow.  And next morning I was saved by the monsoon, I dragged my aching  muscles around all day, but I felt more and more like a fish as the day  went by with all that water pouring down outside so by supper time I  had at least made one decision - fish for supper! ���������';  FISHY SUPPER  1 7.5 oz can of salmon  1 6.5 oz can of tuna  __. cup soft bread crumbs  Vz teaspoon salt  black pepper to taste  Vz cup chopped  mushroom stalks  1 teaspoon lime juice  1 teaspoon chopped parsley  1 tablespoon grated onion  2 egg yolks  V_ cup milk  1 tablespoon melted butter  2 egg whites  1.

Vancouver is undergoing a  definite renaissance in the field  of blues music these days. Much  of this is due to the efforts of  the Pacific Blues and Jazz  Society who have been bringing  in a steady procession of well  known American musicians.  Recently, Texas blues singer,  Albert Collins, also known as  The Iceman', did a weekend  stand at the Town Pump under  their auspices.  I must confess that neither  Yvonne nor myself knew much  about Albert Collins at this  point. As a matter of fact, I had  him vaguely confused with  another blues performer called  Albert King, who recorded  Born Under a Bad Sign among  other tunes. However, Collins*  advance publicity 'was impressive arid we decided to take  in his show. Prior to the gig,. I  did a bit of research on Albert  Collins.  Collins is the cousin of  famous bluesman Lightnin'  Hopkins. Like many black performers, he grew up in poverty  on the dirt farm of his share-  cropping parents. In 1941, at  the age of nine, Albert moved to  Houston, Texas. Here, his circumstances improved. Innately  musical, he learned to play the  piano first; then mastered the  guitar.  Collins quit school early;  took a job mixing paint in an  autobody shop and began playing professionally on weekends.  In 1958, he made his first  record, a funk-blues instrumental entitled The Freeze. (This  "cool" motif was part of Collins' schtick from the beginning.  Other early tunes included:  Frost Bite, Sno-Cone and  lliaw-Out.) In 1962, he had his  first million seller - a tune called, predictably enough; Frosty.  The financial arrangements  were evidently hot in the  Iceman's favour, however. He  was compelled to keep working  in the bodyshop until 1965.  Collins stayed in Houston until 1969. At that time, he met  Bob Hite of the white blues  band Canned Heat. Hite induced the Iceman to move to California and was instrumental in  getting him a record.contract.  This produced three;albums and  brought Collins' work to a  white blues audience for the  first time.  After this initial taste of the  limelight, Collins fell out of  favour with the fans. He was  reduced to playing obscure bars  and little was heard of him during the 1970's.  Then, iri 1978, the fickle tide  of public acclaim turned in Collins' favour again. He signed  with Chicago's Alligator  Records and their good production and astute; promotional  work established him, once and  for all, as a blues luminary.  Fronting a crack new band called The Icebreakers, Collins has  been in the centre of the action,  ever since. A series of successful  albums and a string of packed  house tours across North  America and ranging as far  afield as Europe and Japan,  have firmly consolidated Collins' reputation.

Smith  who defeated Jaeger last year  was astonished by the ring savvy  and conditioning of our Sunshine Slugger.  Duffy, 132 pounds, age 16,  was uncontested in his intermediate (age 16, 17 and 18),  category and was urged by his  coach to challenge the senior  division (age 19 and over).  In the semi-finals Duffy met  Campbell River's Mike Bon-  neau, age 21, who- on several  judges' cards earned the edge in  the first round. The second saw  Duffy apply the pressure until a  vicious body attack left Bon-  neau on the canvas, unable to  beat the 10 count.  Duffy met tlie more powerful  Daryl Starzuk, age 23, of  Ladner in the finals.

The Black  Hawks took first prize in an  eight game tournament at New  Westminster. They had a great  deal of fun and not too much  trouble in defeating their opposition.  The Trail Islanders took second, place in an eight  team  tournament at North Delta.  They had somewhat less fun  losing to Kamloops in the final  game.  Pee Wee All Stars. The  Chiefs entered the prestigious  Burnaby Rep B tournament and  although they only tied one  game, the other three were very  close and exciting. Placed in the  elite circuit and having to play  four different regional zone  champions was tough. They  gave an excellent accounting of  themselves causing considerable  worry in the opposing coaches  who didn't expect this." Being  underdogs, they soon became  the sentimental arena  favourites."  Bantam Rep A. The Chiefs  had a special treat. They watched a Bantam Rep A game between West Vancouver and  Trail. With a number of local  boys on the West Vancouver  team it created unusual interest.  It was exciting. After the in- .  itial fights and ejections were  completed, it got down to some  serious swearing and screaming  by the coaches, parents, and  . players, at each other and at the  officials. They dressed and  played like gladiators, y  However, on* occasion, the  sticks were actually used to handle the puck. The penalty boxes  were stuffed. No one seemed to  be enjoying themselves.

Saturday, May 17, begins our  events with the Third Annual  Better Beater Race. Challenges  have been issued all across the  province but only the brave and  daring will show up to take on  our Beater experts.  Plans are in the works to keep  people on the streets the rest of  the day with an Open Air Street  Fest (hopefully). How about it  . merchants?  Sunday morning, May 18, get  out of bed early to witness the  annual running of the Bed Race  all through the town (in your  nightgown?).  Immediately following the  race, stay tuned for the Great  Timber Days Parade. At the  end of the parade route, there  will be opening ceremonies in  Hackett Park. Dignitaries from  far and wide, as well as our own  local celebs will be on hand to  kick things off, with the crowning of the May Queen and  awarding of parade trophies.

April Struthers, Community  Services Assistant at the Sechelt  Campus, will be available to  give information one morning a  ._��� month during the spring and  fall terms.  The: visits will be  "T5_ viewed after a six mohth trial  period. ':���  ^ April says, "Until this  rnonth, we have only been able  to-offer one visit per term to  . Gibsons, during Mall displays.  With more time dedicated out  of our Sechelt operation, we can  provide more information,  April explained that, because  the Schelt Campus is staffed only on a part time basis, the College is spread thin in covering  Gibsons. "We will monitor the  visits to make sure our time is  being used effectively," she  says.  The College counsellor will  join April at the Chamber office  for some visits, the first one being May 5. People can see the  counsellor on an appointment  basis, with appointments being  made through the Sechelt Campus at 885-9310.  Official things now complete,  the stage area becomes the site  of "Just Like Expo - Taboot-  enay 86". More .on that at a  later date. Once aptly entertained, prepare to be thrilled and  chilled as Timber Days presents  the Logger Sports. There will be  food galore and fun for everyone is guaranteed.

Last week Gibsons Mayor  Diane Strom emphasized the  tentative nature of council's approval of the Gibsons fair, saying no conditions have been set  because Aqua West has not  come back to council with firm  dates and plans.  "It's not a fait accompli,"  she said, adding that there will  be no issuing of a foreshore  lease to Aqua West, as some  residents have feared, and that  the town "would be giving  nothing away."  Planner Rob Buchan earlier  told the Coast News that the '  town may prepare an agreement  for removal with Aqua West  and said that perhaps even the  wooden pier, the one component Aqua West assumed it...  could leave behind, might have ���  to go, depending on council's  estimate of the pier's strength  and longevity.  Vedo said the final engineer- y  ing drawings of the fair will be. 11  forwarded to councils by mid-/ j  April and that he would ajgree to  j  their conditions. A temporary  one-year foreshore permit from  Lands, Parks and Housing is  not finalized yet but "is going  tiirough," he said, as well as  Coast Guard approval.  A request to extend tlie Town  of Gibsons east along its northern boundary was heard by  council April 8 at "a planning  meeting. Redge Hillman, owner  of the 35 acre block on Reed  Road that is proposed for a  campground, said he wants a  sewer hook-up and he wants  better zoning, which he hopes  the town can give him. Since his  property borders on the town  on one side, his request might  . be possible, but it will take time  and there can be no guarantees  about zoning, council told him.  Hillman said that when he  entered into agreement for his  property in October, 1984 it was  a part of the Agricultural Land  Reserve and the zoning contained a provision for a campground and a guest ranch,  which he took to also mean a  retreat centre.  The guest ranch was dropped  from the regional district zoning  designation in 1985 but Hillman  said the district staff "gave us a  positive indication" that a  campground would still be  allowed.  Hillman's amendment for the  campground, including restrictive covenants he had agreed to,  got a third reading at the  regional board last December,  "when they asked for new  covenants, we balked at that.  We'd tried but we could see we  didn't have their support."  Hillman said he foresaw the  new set of delays to be expected,  but it would be worth it, he added, to hook on to the town's  sewer system and to realize his  initial plan of building a retreat  centre, which he said would  bring in a better cash flow than  the campground.  Council told Hillman that it  couldn't promise him zoning to  permit a retreat centre, although  both he and council'acknowledged it was partly the purpose  of the request.  About agreeing'to the inclusion, Mayor Diane Strom said,  "I have no qualms. But that is  my opinion."  "Legally," said planning  chairman Bob Maxwell, "we  have no alternative but to accept this formal request."  The planner, Rob Buchan,  told council that Victoria may  regard the Hillman inclusion as  approvable by itself, "but they  might also want to square off  the northern boundary, though  we are not requesting it."  "Squaring off the northern  boundary" would mean the inclusion of seven smaller properties around Hillman's and  would extend the Gibsons  border along Reed Road to  Granthams Landing, a change  both Buchan and Sunshine  Coast Regional District  (SCRD), planner Jim Johnstone  advocated in a 1983 report.  Gibsons clerk Lorraine Goddard said Friday that in the late  1960's homeowners in the surrounding properties were,  against inclusion in the town.  But that may have changed, she  said. She added that the decision by the Lieutenant Governor and Council in Victoria is  made somewhat arbitrarily and  that in the last boundary extension the &ingo Diesel building  was included in the town with  another property against the  owner's stated wishes.  Hillman's case for joining the  town was made largely on the  basis of his having been "let  down" by the regional district:  , "We (he and his wife) were  acting in good faith. We  thought they were backing us  bu,t it just didn't look that  way." In fact he said dealing  with the SCRD ..was -like "being  up.against a brick wall."  According to SCRD chairman Jim Gurney, it was  Hillman who had led the regional district on. Gurney told  the Coast News that the board  had supported Hillman's request and had worked hard,  and at considerable expense to  the taxpayer, to refine the  covenants to satisfy all parties,  including many Area F residents  who were strongly opposed to  the development. t  He said Hillman's amendment was not even being held  up by the district at present but  by a covenant request from the  Ministry of Highways.  Teachers for peace  The Teachers for Peace Committee are sponsoring a peace  education workshop on Friday, April 18. Paul Costello, a  Vancouver teacher and B.C. Teachers' Federation peace  education associate, will be leading this workshop. He will be  looking at many topics dealing with teaching peace education  and encourages community members to attend.  The location will be Gibsons Elementary (Ms Knecht's  room), from 9 to 4 p.m.  Number problems  Confusion in a time of need may result from houses in Gib-*  sons which are not displaying their new house numbers, or  have them up but have the old numbers left oh as well.  Tlie town planner told council last week that emergency  fire and ambulance services have changed over to the new  system, which will be incorporated in the next B.C. Tel directory.  Processing plant for Egmont  If By-law amendment 96.97  , goes through it will, allow, an  ,v aquaculture processing plant to  open in September on the shores  of the Skookumchuck Rapids in  Egmont. If the speed with  which the amendment has passed through first and second  readings is any indication 96.97  will be enacted in record time.  Seawalk concerns  Residents of the Gibsons  foreshore are worried that the  town will develop the seawall to  their loss and one couple have  written council saying that if  necessary they will fence off the  boundaries of their property,  which they say is the high  waterline.  Joe and Vivian Hunt wrote  they had never given consent for  a  right-of-way  fronting  their  Gibsons  Tuesday: -. y  Thursday*     ^^P-m.  Saf"rday; J^P-m.  _^^?L.��  property, though they had  agreed to discuss it if the rip-rap  boulders were removed from  the seawall.  The Hunts and other foreshore residents are apprehensive  v that the town will roll out a concrete walkway up to the level of  their doorsteps or leave a rip-  . rap wall making boating access  impossible.  Council's discussion of the  matter last week was kept closed  to the public. The previous  week town planner Rob Buchan  told the Coast News that he  thought some of the fears of  residents "have merit" and was  optimistic that an agreement  could be worked out. The town  has applied for Expo Legacy  grant funds to finish the  seawalk.  The amended by-law adds to  .By-law.9&a precise definitiqn pf v,  aquaculture processing and excludes any rendering of fish  products.  The by-law also allows for a  residence, aquaculture processing 'where the use is contained  entirely within an enclosed  building', home occupation,  civic use and public service.  Chairman Jim Gurney questioned the haste with which the  amended by-law is passing  through the process.  Area A Director Gordon Wilson, who is guiding the by-law  through, said that haste was  necessary because of the large  number of fish farms that have  proliferated in the Egmont area  and the lack of facilities *in  , suitable i 1 ocsrtlQns, to deal with  anticipated fish.' .^  "There's a great potential to  develop a viable secondary industry here," Wilson told the  board. "With one in place by  September there'll be a chance  of keeping the industry in the  area."  The processing plant proposed at the site, District Lot 6990,  will also have the capability of  processing oysters, now being  produced in larger and larger  quantities on the Sunshine  Coast.  Wilson gave regional planner  Geoff Power credit for pulling  the by-law together speedily and  accurately.  The Sunshine  Notice Board  _.

Petrocan outlet  Work on the Sunnycrest Esso renovation should be back  on track this month but the station will re-open as a Petrocan.  outlet.  The Gibsons planner said last week that the owner had  been unexpectedly delayed and that he says now he would not  have demolished the old station if he had foreseen the problems of financing the renovation.  There have been a few complaints to the municipal hall  about the lack of activity on site during February and March.  Your Christ Is.too Small video taped presentation followed by discussion.

Coast News, April 14,1986  17.  by Ann Cook, 883-9167  I do not know where the impression that "birds are dumb  came from but it has always  been, dumb cluck, bird brain,  and so on. But loons are not  dumb.  I have, never seen one with a  calendar yet but three years in a  row they have arrived at Waugh  Lake din the night of full moon,  carrying on with that mournful  calling and silly laughing all  night long to let me know they  are sad and silly to be home.  Humming birds must have a  very small brain but they know  where it's at - no scrounging in  the bush for food for them!  There is a swinging bar on the  Backeddy sundeck where they  hang out. Just as the sun sets,  which is Happy Hour, there  were 10 or 12 of them impatiently waiting a turn at the jug.  They stop and start so fast it's  impossible to count them, could  have been 14.

WELCOME HOME  Welcome home Katie Devlin  from a long holiday. Also John  Griffith whom I haven't met to  ask if he liked Paris In the Spring or if he suffers from jet lag.  SPRINGING UP  Like dandelions (wild plants),  there are processing plants (fish  plants) trying to spring up all  over Egmont..  I   have  enjoyed  dandelion  wine and I'll bet almost every  . mother has received a sticky  bouquet   of   dandelions,   so  dandelions have their place.  Fish plants are new to me,  especially these that do not  smell. (I lived in Steveston at  one time.) But work is work and  we should be happy for any  employment that happens in  Egmont.  I would like to see our young  people come back, (Joe, Mike,  Rob, Cliff, Jess, Lynn, Brian,  Larry, Anette, Bob and Gerald,  to name a few), who have left ih.  the last year or two.  There are a few of us whs  work non stop 26 hours a day.  but most of us are pretty lai|3  back. So we have to think aboijt  it and we don't know of another,  community with two or three  processing plants to call on for.  advice. ;  I remember when the gravel',  pit came iri. They said as we_  move back into the side hill, we  will plant trees in front and you  won't even know we are there.  Ha, ha, on us. "        !  Take a look sometime wheii  you come to Egmont. Don't gdt'  me wrong, I am pleased to set  all the locals working there; they  just shouldn't BS us with pretty  talk. Of course that "plaint  trees" wasn't in writing. ;  , This time around we should,  have it all in writing, then the  company can't change the rules,  when the plant changes hands!.  If 1 feel hoodwinked I'll be  reminded every day or.every  night as trucks loaded with fish  . gear come down the sharp curv��  where I live in peace and quiet..'.  Anyway, now down to the  nitty gritty paper work; this last  meeting wasn't as well attended,  even the dogs stayed home and  soon as Joe suggested we go to  the, pub we were gone. The  meeting after the meeting is  sometimes better for thought^  and ideas. It will all happen and'  and whenever or where ever, thd  young  people  will   need   thej  work. .

Coast News, April 14,1986  By SD #46  The school board has selected  Dr. Arthur Kratzmann to examine the policies and procedures that were used in School  District 46 to deal with the incidents of child abuse which  have arisen in recent times.  Terms of reference have been  developed by the board and Dr.  Kratzmann has agreed to them.  Dr. Kratzmann will be introduced to the public at the  April 22 meeting of the school  board.  He will explain to the public  the process which he intends to  follow and there will be an opportunity for questions from  the floor about that process.  At the end of his examination, Dr. Kratzmann will bring  to the board his recommenda  tions as to how any further incidents may be minimized if not  irradicated.  Chairman of the board Don  Douglas, in a press release,  states that the board intends to  keep the community informed  as to the outcome of Dr. Kratzmann's examination.  Well known in British Columbia, Dr. Kratzmann has offered his expertise and experience to individual boards on  such topics as policy development and selection of senior  staff.  He collaborated with Terry  James in publishing a manual,  A brief guide to the recruitment  and selection of school district  senior administrative personnel,  which is a step-by-step manual;  for board members in the recruitment of senior personnel.  A highly experienced group  chairman and much sought after as a leader for provincial  education committees and as a  consultant for school districts,  Dr. Kratzmann is the former executive director of the Alberta  School Trustees Association.  He was the dean of education at  the University of Regirik and  Victoria and is now professor of  communications and social foundations with the faculty of  education at the University, of  Victoria.  Copies of the terms of  reference are available at the  School Board office, Box 220,  Gibsons.  rsand  T r u s t e e s h a ve p rob I em s  with school finances  CHEVY CHEVETTE  and SPECTRUM from  Olds Firenza, Camaro, Cierra 4 cyl,  Celebrity 4 cyl., Monte Carlo,       .

"This is a terrible way to raise  funds for education," chairman  of the school board Don Douglas exclaimed at last Tuesday's  board meeting when discussion  of the board's position on the  provincial government's Fund  for Excellence program arose.  The board of School District  46 has not yet adopted an official policy towards the fund  which will be distributed by  Cabinet on a first come, first  served basis.  Trustee Dave Mewhort had  harsh words for the program.  "I would like to see basic  education funded adequately  first before an excellence program," he told the board. "I'd  like to see it all put into the  fiscal framework."  In fact the government has  already taken $6.5 million from  the original $115 million in the  fund for use on textbooks and  Mewhort said, supported by  Secretary-treasurer Roy Mills,  that the Ministry of Education  wanted to take a further $19  million from the fund to inject  into the fiscal framework.  These deductions and the grants  already made to universities and  colleges have left only about $35  million in.the fund to be distributed among the 75 districts in  the province.  Some six to eight applications  have already been received by  the board from teachers in the  district who have projects for  which they would request funding;  Trustee Maureen Clayton  was not happy with the board's  position.  "The government has us over  a barrel in this," she said.  Let's salute  our volunteers  This is Volunteer Week and time to thank those whose ef--  forts make such a difference in our lives.  Here on the Sunshine Coast we would all,suffer to some  degree were it not for the generosity and hard work of hundreds of dedicated volunteers.,  Next Thursday, April 17 at 3 p.m. in the Sechelt Legion  Hall a Volunteer Tea will be held to give the community a  chance to say "Thank you".    , -        ����� *���"������ '  And if you are thinking about giving of your time and energy to help others or upgrade your skills, this is the week to  Due to the tremendous response for  last week's specials, we will hold  them  over.1 more Week: Sorry for the inconvenience  to those people who phoned and we were booked  up, but now you pan phone and make that appointment.  i, ���_,��������  Tune-Ups  FROM  6CYL  Lube5 Oil, Filter Service  INCLUDES FILTER AND UP TO 5 LITRES OIL  (Most Cars & Trucks)  ,'4i?

'������������'y  Called Community Information Systems, the centres, located in each of the two malls,  will be funded by the TWU and  will offer varied services to their  customers. They will lease and  sell telephones, take phones in  for repair, handle enquiries  about billing - there will be a  direct line to the North Vancouver office of B.C. Tel - and  bills may be paid at the office,  with a charge of 50 cents for  collection;  "If 75 per cent of the population here co-operates we'll be  able to pay most of the rent and  the wages," Clark said. "The  rest will come from the TWU."  This development follows on  an agreement between the TWU  and B.C. Telephone that. the  operation of the centres would  not adversely affect their collective agreement.  Clark said that other communities in the province are in  the same boat as the Sunshine  Coast, with even more jobs being lost to centralization.
