Trade _Show last  ;week. The 50 exhibitors offered  ;a wide range of services for any  stage or form of aquaculture  operation.  y Capilano   College's   Aqua-  ; culture Centre was there to  show you how to go from total  ��� ignorance of the subject to acquiring all the basic information  ineeded to get started in the in-  .dustry.  The B.C. Government provided information on the acquisition of Crown Land for the  purposes of starting a fish farm  and .free booklets oh start-up  .procedures and management.  Continental Carlisle Douglas,  a brokerage firm operating out  of Vancouver, was the only  financial institution with an information booth. They were offering assistance to companies  from the inception stage  through public listing on the  Vancouver Stock Exchange to  international financing and in-,  surance underwriting.  They also distributed an in*  teresting information package  on the history of aquaculture  and current world-wide  developments.    -.'.  Just about any other information that might be needed for ;  a successful operation can be  gained through another exhibitor at the show, B.C.  Research.  This is a non-profit indepen  dent society which "conducts  research, development and  other technical work under contract to sponsors in the industry  and government." In other  words, any research you might  want done from packaging, to  fertilizing, to foreign  technology, these people will _  do. They even know how to get  the government to help pay for  some of the cost.  The day-to-day operational  necessities of fish farming were  also well covered. Pamphlets  and demonstrations were  available for everything from  fish inrioculatioris to two-way  radios. A Tacoma corripany  called Sound Environmental  displayed the latest in French  design in shellfish cages while  Applied Microsystems Ltd.  flaunted the newest computer  software for use in the industry.  Conspicuously absent, however, were manufacturers  located on the Sunshine Coast.  Oppdrett Services Canada,  located in Porpoise Bay, sell sea  cages and automatic feeders but  the feed they sell is imported  from the United States. Trend  Feed Inc. is the only local  manufacturer of fish food.  Predator nets, cages, buoys, etc.  are all manufactured elsewhere.  With approximately 40  operating or firmly.committed  fish and shellfish farms on the  Sunshine Coast the potential for  secondary industries remains  virtually undeveloped. In the  meantime, businesses from all  over North America and some  European firms are happy to  supply anything we need.  Last week's,Aquaculture Conference, sponsored by the Sunshine  Coast Aquaculture Association, attracted more than 50 trade exhibitors as well as some 400 delegates.-Here Ann Levi-Lloyd of  Aqua-Can Enterprises shows a state-of-the-art sea scanner, just one  . of the latest technological advances in the aquaculture industry.  -^Ray Smith photo  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast      25* per copy on news stanp's    September 8,1986    Volume 40    Issue 36  ^^^^^L^t)sl:^ ,i%3. :^t~-  lashes back  *i*��- /����� -���-��vi-tuHvoJii^wjix,,iT;,,,_,  Aqua West said author  of its own misfortune  It was back to school for the students of School District 46 last week and time to remember that extra  care is needed on the roads. Let's keep our children safe! ���Ray Smith photo  Copping still hot  Water issue simmers  't "This is still absolutely  ridiculous," Bill Copping exclaimed when he talked to the  Coast News last week about the  latest proposal from the regional district for resolving his  long-standing battle over water  rates.  "User fees means that if you  use, you pay. If you go into a  restaurant and buy a hamburger  you don't pay for yours and for  nine others as well!  '���Victoria will not approve  this by-law. There's a 44 per  cent reduction in my bill and  they are going after getting me a  refund for some of my overpayments but the rates are still  four times too much. Their  method of charging for offices  is wrong. I have to pay for every  little broom closet in my  building. Seven offices : at $81  each!"  The regional district's new  water rates by-law levies a flat  rate of $81 per office, regardless  of the number of users or of the  amount of water used. There  are a few exceptions to this, but  those are metered. Copping had  requested a meter from the  district but meters are on the  way out, according to regional  district policy and the rates are  based on fire flow, not water used as reported in last week's  Coast News.  Copping has taken his problems to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs as well as to the  new premier, Bill Vander Zalm.  John McDonald, of the ministry, told the Coast News that  the regional district's by-law, in  its previous draft, had "left  some disparity" and he had told  them to "come up with something".  The imposing of a flat rate on  all commercial users "may  result in a number of users'  rates going up" and McDonald  said that he considered metering  to be a better method of charging for water than a flat rate.  "There are likely other ways  that are more equitable. We  have a whole section (in the  ministry) called Financial Services that approves and examines by-laws. They can offer  suggestions and provide examples of similar situations  elsewhere."  In the meantime Copping is  bitter about his situation.  "They'd better smarten up  and get their act  together...when this flat rate  comes in they won't have  enough room to seat everyone  who's complaining.  "The province has to do  something about this...(Inspector of Municipalities) Topham  told them to put a meter in my  place and in (Tom) Lamb's  (The Dock). Maybe he can't tell  them but he can hold up the bylaw.  "My final alternative is to lay  a law suit on the Province of  B.C. and I will carry through  with my threat. Any. 10 year old  can see the inequities."  "If Vedo's remarks were not  so ludicrous they'd be libellous.  It's absurd to suggest that any  public comments I made would  have an effect on investors in  Aqua West," Gordon Wilson  told the Coast News last week  when commenting on accusations made by Vedo in the local  media. Vedo claims that  Wilson's call for an audit of  Aqua West's spending of more  than $200,000 of public funds  be conducted was the major  cause of Aqua West's financial  failure.  "When I made those comments I had seen the May 15,  1986 summary of the first five  and a half months of expenditures and income of Aqua  West. My remarks had a sound  basis in facts," Wilson said.  "There are very real questions that need to be answered  but so far I have had no response from the Premier's office. In fact T have had no official response at all, and I have  no idea whether the audit will be  released or not."  The Coast News has similarly  had   no   response   from   the.  Ministry despite several phone  calls and messages left in the  Deputy Minister's office.  Aqua West is in debt to the  tune of more than $70,000,  much of it to local business people. A letter has been sent to the  creditors by Sunshine Coast  Tourism Association president  Richard Tomkies assuring them  that the Aqua West, which is  largely his brainchild, will be  selling off its assets and will  then be able to pay its debts.  It was Tomkies who, in June  of 1985, in a presentation to  both municipal councils and the  regional board, said that his  organization's best estimate was  that, with no positive promotion on their part, 1.5 million  visitors could be expected on the  Sunshine^ Coast during Expo.  These visitors" would leave approximately $22 million in the  community during that time.  The then Minister of Agriculture, Tom Waterland,  responded to these figures by  saying in a letter that they  "seemed to be overly  optimistic" yet on May 12,  1986, 12 days after the Aqua  West fair was due to open, the  same ministry sent a cheque to  Oddvin Vedo for $100,000,  although, according to the  financial statements on the first  five and a half months, the  'i organization was already some  $44,000 in the hole.  This is partly what prompted  Wilson to call for an audit, to  be conducted by the Ministry of  Agriculture.  "I never at any time said that  what Aqua West has done is illegal, but I want to know what  the government is doing sending  that much money for an event  that's 12 days late in opening,  with no infrastructure in place  and that much money in the  hole before it opens?  "Perhaps it's coincidence but  three of the major promoters in  this were also delegates at the  Socred convention in Whistler.  I don't think these people reflect  the consciousness of the average  Social Credit voter but it seems  to be characteristic of an incompetent government.

We do not intend to do personal injury  but we realize that for some that statement will be very difficult to believe. .  Lest we be seen to be playing party political games - be it  noted in this context that often those who pride themselves  in their ability to read between the lines are doing nothing  more than scanning their own feverish imaginations - let it  be said that the writer of this editorial has noted in the  machinations of the local provincial NDP constituency as  much undemocratic, anti-democratic, and positively  cynical manouvering as takes place in any other policital  party or constituency in this country.  No j the malaise which affects government iri this country is not localised in any single party or in any single constituency. We live in a political sea of hypocrisy and corruption and the inefficiency and waste that corruption brings.  '  For example, we can if requested supply details of how  each elected government on the Sunshine Coast, with the  exception of the School Board, in the last three weeks has  had misinformation presented to it or information  withheld by those hired hands whose primary task it is to  keep the elected representatives informed.  We need hardly note that though the School Board is  excluded the recent upheavals in that jurisdiction aire sufficient testament to the fact that similar misleading of  elected officials is.not unknown there too.  The falling away of standards in public behaviour as we  suggest elsewhere on this page, may be one of the most  significant contributors to the enormous waste and  cynicism for which government in Canada at all levels is  becoming noted.  Recognition due  Irene Lugsidin, CommunityDevelopment Officer in the  employ of the SCRD, has just about moved into second  place among those who have been the target of vilification  on the Sunshine Coast.  (Due to length of tenure it is felt that the publisher of  this newspaper is still comfortably in the lead when it  comes to being such a target. Charles Lee may be leaving  soon but how Can we forget him?)  The acknowledgement by the provincial Tourist DepartmenttoMrs: Lugsdin that^^lier task for<^ approach meets  with their enthusiastic approval; the joining of the  foreshore committee deliberations by a representative of  the Department of Forests and Lands - these are indications that her steadfast adherence to the first principles of  community sendee is beginning to be recognized.  There will be more attacks no doubt, from that band of  vituperative malcontents whose primary purpose in public  utterance is to defend their own government grants. If  there is airy justice Common' sense, oil the  Sunshine Coast her worth will soon be generally realized.  iSIP  5 YEARS AGO  Construction costs of Teredo Street in Sechelt now  amount, to $785,000. The original estimate (late 1979)  was $521,000 leaving a shortage of $264,000. Council  has been taken out of the hot water by receiving funding  to finish the project from the Ministry of Municipal Affairs. ;..'  Damage amounting to well over $1000 was reported  by police in lower Gibsons as a result of a Friday night  vandalism rampage.  10 YEARS AGO  Two long-time residents of the Coast came but last  week with published books of poetry. The first is Whittling* by Hubert Evans, resident of Roberts Creek for  almost 50 years. Evans has had a tong and varied career  as a writer and a journalist. The second poet appearing  with a book is Peter Trower. It is called The Alders and  Others and is Trower's third book of poems.  20 YEARS AGO  A swimming pool as a centennial project was decided  upon by the Gibsons and Port Mellon Centennial Committees. After studying blueprints and pictures of  various pools, the committee decided on a pool 30 feet  by 60 feet to cost approximately $12,500.  30 YEARS AGO  The 14th Annual Labour Day celebration sponsored  by the Local International Brotherhood of Pulp, Sulphite  and Papermill Workers was the best yet. A full day's program arranged by Art Lockwood and his committee began with children's sports at Seaside Park. By luhchtime  it was estimated 300 children had claimed tickets for  hot dogs, pop and ice cream.  40 YEARS AGO  South American publishers are offering as high as  $300 a ton for newsprint, the Financial Times reports, or  about four times the United States price. This unprecedented situation arises because US consumption  is now averaging more than 28 per cent higher than last  year while US production is up only five per cent over  1945.

SUBSCRIPTION RATES  Canada: 1 year $30; 6 months $18; Foreign: 1 year $35  Of conflict of interest  I was at a meeting last week  where one of the most respected  men on the Sunshine Coast  (deservedly) offered the view  that there was far too much talk  about conflict of interest these  ��� days..',  It's difficult not to agree with  that view. TO  thetalkof conflict ibf interest is  justified by discernible facts.  In the federal government we  have the remarkable' case of a  cabinet minister ^approving  loans; and grahtsfor % corporation which in, turn, wsjis advancing millions of dollars of credit  to the cabinet minister's wife to  aid the family's failing business.  Provincially, most recently,  we have a cabinet minister .being  part of a decision which would  save millions of dollars for a  company with which he was  already negotiating employ-  -menLv..y'.y ;y:' ���,:;  LbcaUy, \ve have an alderman  in Sechelt.'who has made it her  study in the 10 months she has  held public office to system-  atically mininform her council  and to lobby at those meetings  to which the press is not invited  ion behalf of her business  associates. Virtually every effort  expended has been expended to  ensure her own personal place  at the public trough.  We have a public servant  locally who came by her position by underbidding on a job  after being the head of the  Selection Committee until decision time had arrived.  When former Gibsons mayor  Larry Labonte said last week  there was too much talk of con  flict of interest he was taldng  issue with the messenger. The  proper question is "Is the  message true?"  The fact of the.matter is that  public life in this Canada of  ours has reached a level of self-  serving dishonesty and corruption that bodes extremely ill for  the future of the country.  We are not primarily cpn-  , cerned with the abstracts of  morality here. It is simply a fact  that corruption in government  means incompetence in government.  The real villain of the piece is  - not the individual whotakes advantage i; of . slack community  standards to enrich themselves  at public expense or to ensure  their continuation ih office by  the distribution to supporters of  public money. Opportunists  '. and villains we will always have  amongst us:  The real villain is the  apathetic or amoral population  which sees graft, corruption and  the misuse of public money as a  normal and accepted part of the  political process.  To take the matter head on,  when hard-working and otherwise ethical businessmen hunger  for being a part of a government constituency they are accepting the corruption which  has done so much to undo this  most blessed and promising of  countries.  It is 'normal' for governments to seek to perpetuate  themselves by spending the  public's money to ensure their  own'continuation in power.  Is it efficient in the long term,  in this province for example, to  deny development funds to 45  per cent of the province without  elected government representatives? If we dispense public  monies to government supporters only, if that is the  criterion we use, how can we be  surprised if those who protest  most vehemently their fidelity to  the government in power and  who are thereby rewarded are  not infrequently as incapable of  managing money as they are  zealous at professing loyalty?  Have we not been witness  locally to a staggeringly ineffectual use of public funds dispensed to people whose inability .to  manage money has been no  secret for several years?  Mr. Labonte is right when he  says there is too much talk of  conflict of interest. Unfortunately there is too much talk  of it because there is too much  conflict of interest.  As long as Canadians think it  only normal that the Prime  Minister should spend millions  in his home riding to ensure his  personal re-election: as long as  we think it normal that a vastly  disproportionate amount pif the  money collected in Western  Canada is spent in Ontario and  Quebec because that's where the  votes are - then that is as long as  the corruption and inefficient  use of increasingly scarce  dollars will continue.  To repeat: a corrupt government is by definition an inefficient government. Too much of  the public purse is siphoned off  to people who need only profess  loyalty to get. t,y _  When Canadians watching  their TV screens tuttut in  disbelief and disapproval about  the Marcos millions in the  Philippines, are they aware that  the standards of public morality  with the public purse in this  country constitute one of the  major millstones around the  heck of Canada?  Fire and Ice  Some say the world will end in fire  Some say in ice.  From what Vve tasted of desire  I hold with those who favor fire.  But if it had to perish twice,  I think I know enough of hate  To say that for destruction ice  Is also great.  And would suffice.  Robert Frost  Dianne  Evans  True story of rural development  J  Imagine if you wili a little  coastal village sheltering perhaps a hundred families. Life  isn't easy; it's fishing and logging for the most part, and we  know what hard times have  done to the fishermen and the  loggers.  This little burg sits wetly in a  marshy fen, and life is quite ordinary in the way it is in small  seaside places.  When the tale begins the  villagers are living simply and,  except for the few, each family  boasts its little outhouse, some  with halfmoons on the door,  some with the catalogue on a  nail at hand, the usual kind of  privy you'd find in any small  Canadian town, even today.  As in any story with a plot  that twists in Byzantine fashion,  the characters share some ido-  syncracies. They are politicians  and power brokers, men with  vanity and ambition - all the ingredients of a first rate melodrama.  So we have it - the tiny settlement with simple folk and the  protagonists, out for power and  with pockets to line.  Now, looking at this situation  it seems that perhaps life could  be made a little easier. It's cold  on winter mornings and maybe  the old- timers could do with a  bit less of the hard times.  So, enter the politician. Why  don't we build a sewer? What  better way to improve the health  and welfare of the people, bring  things up to date, step into the  20th century. It's time to get out  of the way of progress and  modernize!  Indeed. Well, the contractors  are called in, and the engineers,  sanitary experts are consulted,  budgets are drawn up and revised, speeches are made and the  work begins.  To have a successful system  you need to have pipes - lots of  them, and water too. This little  town became a veritable hive of  activity and pretty soon the  streets were dug up and paved  again, holes were excavated and  then filled in and before you  could say "vote for me!" the  pipes were laid. More than a  million bucks'worth.  Of course, it came as a bit of  a surprise when they realized  that they couldn't get the water  to flow through the pristine new  pipes without taking a two or  three mile detour. Through the  swamp.  Ah, the swamp. Three, or  even two miles through the  swamp is quite an undertaking  but without the water those nice  new pipes under the town just  won't work.  More speeches. More engineers and budgets and consultations.  It seemed like no time at all  before the new work was done  and, well, there was the water  but unfortunately it seemed that  the system wouldn't work unless there was another lift station.  Back to the dra- j board.  And back to the iget. And  back to the politic* is.  This is where the story starts  to repeat itself. No one ever  seems to learn from past mistakes and no one seems to know  just what went wrong but when  the system was finished at long  last and the water was flowing  and lift stations were lifting, it  had cost more than two and a  half million dollars.  This little village with its hundred families had a modern,  healthy, state-of-the-art sewage  system - with five lift stations!  That's one lift station for every  twenty families or thereabouts.  Now, after all this special  treatment and all the money and  comings and goings you'd think  these good burgers would be itching to hook up to the pipes  and get their money's worth.  Trouble is, no one ever  thought to ask them if they  wanted the sewer in the first  .- place.';. :'y:'>v'';v^v.-  Well, there's nothing worse  for a politician than a nice unused monument, even if it is a  sewer; If seems to remind the  folks that voted for him about  all the money it's cost them to  keep him happy. And with five  lift stations that was quite a  bundle!  Back to the budget. Letters  positively flew between the little  town and the seat of government and don't you know it, it  wasn't too much longer before a  cheque came in the mail. It was  just enough to give each and  every family a bit of a persuasive nest egg - about a thousand dollars apiece.  Before you could say, "Look  at what I've done for you!" all  you could hear around town  was the sound of flushing pipes  and running water;  Mind you, there's plenty of  time for that kind of thing in the  little village -there isn't much  work these days, and sometimes  the cheques are late from UI,  but boy, on a chilly morning  when the clouds are hanging onto the mountain tops and the  misty rain is falling it does a  body good to stay warm and  dry.

Secretary  I Federal Electoral Boundaries  ^Commission for the Province  .of B.C.  3 55, 200 Granville Street  �� Vancouver, BC V6C 1S4  ��Dear Secretary:  I    I wish to make a presentation  i at the public hearing being con-  ^'ducted   in   Vancouver   on  Wednesday, November 12,  1986.  As a resident and elected  representative of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District, as well  as being a professional geographer I arti concerned about  the Sunshine Coast being included with West Vancouver  and Howe Sound.  The Sunshine Coast is  historically, geographically,  socially, and economically  separate from West Vancouver,  and much more aligned with  Powell River and  Vancouver  Island.  The historic patterns of settlement, transportation routes and  problems (ferries), economic  base, and rural distribution of  population are entirely different  from an urban, affluent,  bedroom community such as  West Vancouver. There is no  homegeneity in such a riding,  and my presentation is ah attempt to rectify a potential inequity in the democratic process.  Brett McGillivray  Actions commended  Editor:  Re: Lagoon Rd. Article  I may be the first to defend  but I'm sure not the only resident of Madeira Park to commend the actions and motives of  Re j ect US demands  j Editor:  |   The failure of the  federal  ���.government to reject outright  | US territorial demands in the  g Dixon Entrance, Beaufort Sea  | and Strait of Juan de Fuca  I should shock most Canadians  'who want Ottawa to uphold  Canadian sovereignty and independence in the face of growling US pressure.  The centre of the dispute has  been the US demand for extending US territory some 20  kilometres south from the present AB line into the Dixon Entrance off Prince Rupert.  According to the Globe and  ; Mail (August 29, 1986), Exter-  ";' nal Affairs Minister Joe Clark  ; wrote US Secretary of State  ,' Geroge Shultz in a letter which  ',. has not been made public, that  7 now "is not an opportune  'I time" to confront the sensitive  ^ issue. The US has apparently  , been pressing the Mulroney  " government for negotiations on  the US territorial claim.  *     In fact, Clark's letter gives  . support to the US claim for an  ; extension of the US boundary  l into haif of the Dixon Entrance  which is one pf the important  fishing areas on the B.C. Coast,  and which is also rich in  mineral, oil and gas deposits.  The letter makes it clear that  Canada would be prepared to  negotiate the US claim at a  more "opportune time".  This is obviously a reference  to the free trade negotiations  which are now underway and  it's quite likely that the Conservative government sees this as a  possible bargaining chip in  Canada-US negotiations.  Canadian territorial boundaries and the resources within  them belong to Canada and the  Canadian people and should  not be alienated under any circumstances. Instead of surrendering to US pressure and  holding open the door to future  negotiations on Canadian territory in the Dixon Entrance,  Strait of Juan de Fuca and  Beaufort Sea, the Canadian  government should declare its  sovereignty over these territories  as irrevocable and not subject to  negotiation.

In my opinion - and that of  many others - Irene Lugsdin has  already accomplished a great  deal. Her activities on behalf of  diverse groups are' many and  varied and she earns her salary  well.  As to her critics, I suggest  that these Sunshine Coast financial wizards direct their energies  towards investigating what has  happened to the monies our  governments granted to Aqua  West and demand the release of  the auditor's report.

They now have. purchased  this property at Lagoon Road  and are developing it so that  many more visitors can camp  and moor on our beautiful  waterfrontage.  I feel that any problems  which seem to have arisen need  not to have appeared in the  paper to upset these people.  They have worked so hard and  certainly have no intentions of  doing anything but better our  area.  "Liddle Bay" was named by .  John & Margaret as a lasting  tribute to Ida & Gordon Liddle.,  I think this is wonderful as John  & Margaret never knew these  long time residents of the harbour.  I understand the dock was  unsafe and John fixed that problem.  In conclusion, it seems very  unfair that two people as nice as  . John & Margaret should now be  so upset:  I admit I don't know the  legalities but I think their project is a great way for lis to  remember the Liddles and an  asset to our community.  Ms Joni Nixon  Editor's   note:   The   Lagoon  Road problem arose at a public  ��� ^meetingr covered >by>- this  ���'' newspaper. Although we regret  hurt feelings, our mandate is to  ''report the news objectively/  Not a pot  smoker  Editor:  Because I believe the Editor  of the Shopper's Press, will not  have the guts or integrity to  print a retraction. concerning a  report on me in their paper, I  would like to set the matter  straight.  The name of the person concerned in the court column  about the pot smoking sentence  and all the rest of it is Robert  James McBride of Halfmoon  Bay.    .  I do not smoke pot, I am a  lush.

Coast News, September 8,1986  Fish farm financing seen hopefu  by Penny Fuller  Financial institutions may be  more receptive to aquacui-  turalists in the future, delegates  to the International Aquaculture Conference were told  last Thursday.  A panel consisting of Brian  Hann of the Royal Bank of Canada, James Booth of James  Sooth Limited, and P.A.D. Se-  cjretan of the Aquacultural Insurance Service Limited discus-  sfcd the past and future business  problems within the industry.  Brian Hann pointed out that  ijntil recently there has been a  rteal problem with lack of infor-  r nation, education and training  for bankers regarding the  jquaculture industry. As with  anything new, there have been  -.o statistics to refer to regarding  lortality rates, marketability,  .ncing of.the final product and  arket acceptance.��� ..  f An additional problem was  that once an institution had  financially committed themselves they were unable to pull  Jut until the full cycle from  lolts to market-size fish was  wnpleted.  , The inaccessibility of * the  fjarms themselves also made  bankers nervous, since they  $ere unable to keep a close eye  <Jri their security and had no  toy of knowing what was hap-  ling with the operation.  Recent years, however, have  en a closer contact between  Norwegian and Canadian ban-  jeers and the information flow-  ig out of Norway is helping to  educate financiers. An optimistic attitude is growing as  fish are being brought to market  and  statistics  are being  collected.  James Booth stressed the im-  Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries James Hewitt couldn't make  it to the opening of the Aquaculture Conference on Wednesday  evening but did manage to pay a visit to the trade show on Friday  afternoon to wish the participants well. ���Ray Smith photo  if shell and fin fish  mixture of  seen  A -weU-plEmhed mixture of  hell and fin fish farming may,  fe the answer tomaint iaining aii  lological balance in the Sechelt  l^let, according tb Dr. Edward  ack, a fin fish mariculture  iologist with the B.C. Ministry  f Environment.  Dr. Black was addressing  elegates  at the Aquaculture  inference last week on the sub-  ect of the impact of salmon faring on the marine environ-  ent in Sechelt Inlet. With him  as Dr. Harold Rosenthal,  resenting   a   world-wide  rspective of the effects of  quaculture on water quality.  The results of a recent study  lone in France, released only  j_vo weeks ago, were discussed  ay Dr. Rosenthal. Contrary to  previously held beliefs, the  study indicates that stock-  reducing disease does not strike  jiyhen the highest density of fish  Teaches a peak.  Instead, feed conversion  ^drops, and the fish themselves  ��seem to begin decreasing their  population through natural  means. At that point, disease  crops up and assists in the process. The implications of this  are that there are warning signs  which the aquaculturist can  watch for in order to take action  before the disease part of the cycle hits.  Rosenthal emphasized the  importance of monitoring levels  of oxygen, ammonia, phosphorous, etc. in a wide variety  of locations and depths  throughout a given farm and at  varying times of the day. Ap  parently there can be vast differences in readings at the same  location during a 24 hour  period.  He also cautioned against  assuming that what worked in  Norway would work on the  Sunshine Coast. A major difference lies in the fact that the  fiords of Norway are washed  directly by the Atlantic Ocean.  Water currents here, on the  other hand, follow more localized patterns and channelings  before they come in contact  with open water.  The significance of this was  emphasized when Dr. Black  pointed out that in some locations of the Sechelt Inlet there is  only a three per cent exchange  of surface water with the movement of the tides.  Black also noted that the  placement of cages actually  changes the water flow characteristics within a given area and  can result in "dead zones"  where the natural cleaning ac-  Highways backs out  Sechelt inherits  long-standing problem  tion of the currents cease to exist. ,', y '_,: y y ?>| ^  Salmon farms >\\_.th the  capacity of at least 4,$Q0 tonnp  of fish have been proposed for  the Sechelt Inlet. The^esulti^g  waste concentration $$ the area  is like caviar to plankton. However, in its turn, the plankton  micro-organisms are a  shellfish's delight. One obvious  solution, then, to preventing a  possibly1 dangerous plankton  bloom is the inter-mixing of fin  fish and shellfish farms within  "���the/inlet."; y: ,;';\y  ���.; Both Black and Rosenthal  emphasized that the delicate  nature of the salmon ensures  that owners themselves will be  the first tb be hurt if water  quality drops.  In order to prevent this happening, they have placed an ad  in a local trade journal asking  local operators to co-operate in  a comprehensive water quality  monitoring program.  The fact that a long-standing  culvert problem in the Tuwanek  area was now the problem of  the Sechelt Council caused some  concern at last week's council  meeting. y  The cost of the culvert and  repaving is estimated at $1500  with an additional $645 estimated for backhoe work.  "It's not my problem now/'  Tucker Forsythe of the Department of Highways is reported to  have told council.  Council members noted that  the Department of Highways  was aware of the work that  needed doing and was reported  to be awaiting the dry period to  get it done.

He pointed  out one of the unique characteristics of salmon farming,  that it is easy to enter but difficult to stay in.  The initial cost of starting  may be low, and the cost of  smolt manageable.  However, the more successful  the initial stage is,' the more  complications arise especially  with the accelerating consumption of food. By planning in advance and identifying potential  problems, the fisfr fanner can  seek financial help before it's  too late.  The industry has also had  problems getting insurance  underwriters for the same  reasons that banks were a little  nervous - lack of statistical data.  However, with the wording being perfected for policies,  Secretan anticipates improvement in that area too.  Disease  prevention  fish key  The image of little salmon  lining up for their yearly in-  noculation may cause some of  us to grin but it's serious  business to Dr. W.D. Paterson.  Paterson is a director of Aqua  Health Ltd., an exhibitor at the  Aquaculture Trade Show, and  was a panel member for discussion on salmon diseases.  The rapid increase of concentrated fish rearing has caused  the issue of fish diseases to gain  economic significance.  Dr. Paterson emphasizes the  economic benefit of prevention  rather than treatment. An information package he provides  says, "Fortunately, the modern  disease prevention tool, vaccination, is coming to the aid of  fish farmers, just as it came to  assist farmers rearing chickens,  cattle and other domesticated'  animals. Indeed, vaccination  has played a major role in the  evolving viability of the  sophisticated poultry industry.  We predict it will do the same  for the aquaculture industry."  In laboratory testing, vaccination reduced the mortality  rate of Furunculosis in coho  salmon from 80 per cent to 10  per cent.  Amazingly, the vaccines can  be injected with a small syringelike tool, however for larger  quantities of fish immersion can  be used.  Dr. Paterson can foresee a  time when, as with other kinds  of livestock, certain kinds of in-  noculations are compulsory for  commercial operations and insurance coverage will be dependent on disease prevention  measures.  ___.

Games Night       9pm-10pm(eve)  School closes down for the year  by Shirley Hall, 883-1154  *r  I went to visit an old friend,  82 years old, who lives in a high  rise in Abbotsford.  We sat in her ninth story  apartment with the patio doors  closed so we could hear each  ( other's conversation and I  \l remarked on how peaceful it is  \l in Egmont and how much we  i> notice the traffic and noise  _!_wjhpn we visit the lower  I; mainland.  \V Now, you may wonder what  thafvliJEis''io-''dd''with"E^bnt's''  ^^ireklyrieWs. My friend's reply,  gf when I went on to say how I  love* living in Egmont, after  spending most of my life near  the city, was that we have a  community, something that is  no longer a part of most  people's lives anymore.  Now our community's school  has closed, at least for this year,  and to me that is sad, for much  of the community life has  revolved around our school:  Hallowe'en Parties, Christmas  Concerts, Easter Egg hunts,  Sports Day, all these were  events that centered around the  school children but in Which the  whole community participated.  I've been gathering a bit of  Egmont's school history: I'm  /riot absolutely sure of all my  facts, but it seems there has  been an Egmont School since  1920, four schools in all, the  first being on the other side of  Jervis Inlet where Vi Silvey lives  and where the area was known  as Skookumchuck.  Although there have been  previous years when it appeared  the school might not open for  lack of children, this is the first  time it has actually happened.  During wartime, however, it  seems the school had to close  one year for lack of a teacher.  How times have changed! Now  there are thousands of teachers  looking for jobs in British Columbia and not enough children.  I've been informed that there  will almost certainly be enough  children next year to re-open. I  hope so.

As reported in the August 25  dition of the Coast News, the  esolution used by council to in-  iate such a move was based on  n erroneous interpretation of  e regional district Economic  evelopment    Commission  DC) by-law. This was raised  t last Tuesday's meeting by  derman Bob Maxwell wno  d first made the motion to  opt out.  "We have opted out if the regional district will accept our  application to do so and if the  necessary vote is acquired. We  will carry through with our resolution even though the motion  used a legal technicality which is  incorrect upon revision of the  by-law.  '"We are opting out because  we wish to do so."  Clerk-administrator Lorraine  Goddard, who had drawn up  the resolution used, not only by  ("Gibsons Council but by Sechelt  as well, responded to this by  telling council:  "Although the by-law  dpesn't require it (the hiring of a  economic development commissioner) it-was the understanding  of both riiunicipalities that it  was the intentiofrof the regional  district to retain an Economic  Development Commissioner,"  she told council. *  "In fact, I have been told by  Victoria that the Ministry of Industry and Small Business  (MISB) does not recognize an  economic development commission as such unless they have a  commissioner."  However this regional district  receives no funding from MISB  and is funded completely by  local tax dollars, board chairman Jim Gurney told the Coast  News. Therefore the ministry is  not in a position to insist that an  economic development officer  be hired.  "We don't have the tax base  to hire an economic development commissioner," .Gurney  said.  "At the outset (of the  through Partners in Enterprise.  One is a voluntary committee  which elects not to hire a full  time person.

The other is a program for  municipalities who may hire an  economic development officer  and may receive up to;$25,000  in funding to support that position. '.'���/./������'.  Funding is on a 50-50 basis,  Dary explained, although if two  or more municipalities team together the ministry will "sweeten the pot"'.  "We encourage municipalities with a common economic base to co-operate."  Municipalities may hire a  regional district's economic  development commissioner if  they wish and pay for the service with funding from MISB.

There are usually two dominant  municipalities   within   most  districts and they jockey for  power and prestige. There's a  fair amount of competition and  that's healthy but it can also be  destructive and lead to a lot of  bickering and fighting.  "The reason Dan Campbell  (former Minister of Municipal  Affairs) created regional  districts (some 20 years ago) was  so that all sides would be forced  to settle their differences at a  tablethey were forced to sit at.  It was deliberate.  "Force them to sit down and  eventually they'll come up with  a settlement.

Tourism strategy support sought  by Dianne Evans  j "I'm not criticizing, just asking for support," Bryan Rubin,  Representing the Tourism Planning Task Force, told Gibsons  Council last: Tuesday evening,  "j^njy) two Gibsons members  ;are��'presently oh the committee  and some representation (from  'Council) would certainly be appreciated by Verna (Sim) and  myself."  Gibsons Council had been  approached by the Tourism  Task Force in the Spring when  i'tKig. committee was formed to  I^^gaS representative to the  Cft^eetiififes but to date no written  \ reply has been received al-  Jthqugji _4tfderman Bob Maxwell  iWais/ selected by Mayor Diane  'Strom to represent the Town.  y f. I don't think it behooves a  iniember of council to sit in on a  ^workshop session," Maxwell  lipid Rubin. "...Once the objectives are looked for and ascertained we?ll take a look."  "Let's have some say in how  the plan may develop," was  Rubin's response. He went on  to say that the people the Council represents might be pleased  to know that their interests were  being looked after in tourism  planning for the area.  Strom said that there had  been some verbal contact with  the task force but that ih the  future Maxwell would be attending.  "We certainly do support  you," she told Rubin.  Council expressed some misgivings about recent controversy  surrounding the task force and  some of its members.  Alderman Norm Peterson  told the Council that the regional board would be arranging  a meeting between the two  municipalities, the Sechelt and  Gibsons Chambers of, Commerce and the regional district  to iron out some of the problems and the Mayor indicated  Boaz's involvement seen  foreshore breakthrough >,  !

The report identifies areas  where potential conflicts with  established uses of the foreshore  might occur and outlines a procedure for applicants to follow  which allows public input in the  decision-making process.  It states clearly that 'The  Ministry will look at each application on a site-specific basis,  and may increase the level of  public involvement if a proposal  appears to be contentious.'  Boaz also assured the. committee that he would be bringing  information of interest to the  Sunshine Coast from the ministry, thereby keeping the lines  of communication open.  The next Foreshore Committee meeting will be on August 26  at 9 a.m. in the regional district  offices. This meeting will deal in  part with the Hardy Island project which is coming up for a second public hearing at the beginning of October. Because of  somewhat unexpected opposition to the project from  residents on neighbouring islands the first public hearing  was interrupted so that more information could be collected  and examined.  SUNSHINE COAST  REGIONAL DISTRICT  BY-LAW AMENDMENT SYNOPSIS  Pursuant to Section 769 of the Municipal Act, notice is-hereby given  that the Board ot Directors of the Sunshine Coast Regional District intends to amend the "Sunshine Coast Regional District Subdivision  Regulation By-law 1_o. 103, 1975" by adopting the "Sunshine Coast  Regional District Subdivision Regulation By-law No. 103.68, 1986".  It is the intent of By-law 103.68 to amend the text of By-law 103 in the  .   following two ways:  fl..(1:). Section is amended to permit the adjustment of parcel  boundaries to facilitate an existing development or improve a subdivision  pattern and thereby permit a change in parcel size subject to stipulated  conditions; and  - (2) Section is amended to delete the regulation requiring a  spatiaiseparation of a well site thirty (30) metres from a property boun-  '-dary.������;' :  ��� Written comments or submissions regarding,the content of By-law  103.68 will be welcomed until September 22, 1986.  The above is a synopsis of By-law 103.68 and is not deemed to be an  interpretation of the by-law. The by-law may be inspected at the Sunshine Coast Regional District Office during office hours namely Monday  to Wednesday, 8 am to 5 pm and Thursday and Friday 8 am to 6 pm  Mr. L. Jardine  Secretary-Treasurer  Sunshine Coast Regional District  Box 800, Sechelt, BC VON 3A0  Telephone 885-2661  that she was in favour of such a  move.  The idea for the meeting  arose at the August 28 regional  board meeting when Area A  Director Gordon Wilson  reported that the friction  generated at the last task force  meeting had occasioned some  concern in the Powell River  Regional District representative.  Wilson said that it was imperative that tourism be  "politically defused" so that  "we can get on with business"  and suggested that a meeting  between the political bodies and  the Chambers would be a good  way of "thrashing it out".  "Tourism is the most easily  recognizable source of direct  revenue for the Sunshine Coast.  It's the first part of economic  recovery. But unless we work  together and have a defined  strategy and build a tangible infrastructure it won't work," he  told the board.  In the meantime a copy of a  letter addressed to Irene  Lugsdin has been received by  both municipalities and the  regional district from the Deputy Minister of Tourism, Michael  Horsey, congratulating Lugsdin  and all the members of the .task  force on the initiatives regarding  tourism development and marketing.  "I am delighted," the letter  reads, "to see almost total involvement both from the public  and private sector on the task  force and be assured of our full  support in your future  activities."  The letter goes on to say that  the Sunshine Coast's enormous  tourism potential makes planning,: "vital"; with "objectives  that are practical, feasible and  have the support of local government and community  groups."

Mickey O'Brien of Roberts  Creek remembers that his home  village of Riley, Alberta, had  many seasons of "Little  Theatre" and visits by musical  artists.  "Every one of pur 700 to 800  inhabitants was involved in  some way," said Mickey, "in  the productions. We had to do  our own since movies, if any,  were silent, and radio hadn't  reached us yet with Amos 'n  Andy and the Sunday evening  shows.  /"Since we were close to Edmonton, we could readily get  directing assistance from the  university extension department. We developed our entertainment projects to where we  even had our own Chaiitaugua  iri the earty. I930's."  /, Chautaugiia?, That annual  binge of culture in the prairie  towns - and in B.C., too - that  lasted from three to six:. days  depending on the size of the  town and the pre-sale of  season's tickets.  .Entertainers - musical  groups, plays, lecturers, and  magicians for the kids of all  ages - travelled their scheduled  circuits by rail and eyeri by  automobile to perform in tents  or town halls.  The voices of the lecturers  could out-boom the.din of rain  on the canvas roof, the songs  and dances freshly new, the  humorists excruciatingly funny,  and the magitiahs delightful.  Something to '-'talkabout as^we  sat around the stove of a winter  .night. -/ ���       ��� ':'';������  "My wife's brother," said  Mickey, "first met his future  wife when she came to our  village as advance agent - a  "Chaiitaugua girl" like the one  in the recent CBC show. Now a  widow, she is one of the directors of an endowment fund her  . husb.x_d set up in his will.  "And she still looks on  theatre projects with a kindly  eye in making grants," said  Mickey.  Well, Gibsons, the foregoing  may nudge you individually to  consider the campaign at present underway to turn the  former firehall into a small  theatre.  EXPO APOLOGISES  Expo does care about its  visitors. A letter of complaint  from me concerning a cancelling of a scheduled event at the  Kodak Bowl received a reply a  couple of weeks later.  The letter said in effect that  there was too much uncertainty  of performance times for the  Kodak Bowl, but yes, my suggestion to use the site-wide PA  system to announce: last minute  cancellations just might be implemented, -s^  If you have wondered about  days and times for the.RCMP  Musical Ride, take not��hq�� a  reminder in this letter from Ex7.  po: the ride will not be performed September 15 to 22.

I suppose the Sasquatch legend has a  lot to do with it but, quite apart  from "Bigfoot myths, the place  has a magical, quality that is  quite unique. As you drive into  this little pocket of wonders  from the cornfields and flat-  lands of the Fraser Valley, it is  like entering a different world.  In the space of a couple of  miles, the terrain changes,quite  noticeably. Deciduous trees  begin to proliferate. Ancient,  crumbline mountains rear  precipitously. Harrison Lake  sprawls northward like a great,  green mirror. Suddenly you are  elsewhere. ���.  On a warm, lazy Saturday in  mid-July Yvonne and I hit the  freeway and chart a course for  this one-of-a-kind place. Our  mission is a simple one. Harrison Hot Springs is hosting its  first Arts Festival. Poet Earle  Birney is a Writer-in-Residence.  We have not seen Earle since his  stand in Sechelt, almost two  years back and we are looking  forward to spending a bit of  time with him again.  . Eastbound traffic on the  freeway is sparse. The west-  . bound lanes are quite another  matter. They are jammed  bumper to bumper with cars  from all over North America.  Like a horde of tranquilized  lemmings, the massed autos and  campers crawl towards the glittering and pricey magnet of Expo. It would appear to be the  biggest draw on the continent in  this particular year. But our  thoughts are far from th? Ram-  eses Pavilion and 'the Sierearn  Machine.  The Fraser Valley is becoming pretty familiar turf to  Yvonne and myself. We have  made a good many forays  through it over _Jie pa^'several  years. Because of the; vujCTowd-  ed highw^weimake godd time  and by mid-aftelriiobri, $fe pull  into the Wobclskie Mountain  Cafe for a bit of iunchfpgy  :���, .^e^;wCTff^intt^ili^^%: this^  excellent Uttle:restawni^xSy'. our'  friend, hang%lid^f|p>il^|^iifc-_-_v  Mitchell. It is'a favourite haunt  of glider pilots since they, launch  off the mountaih directly  above. We can seejthe launching  platform clearly from our seat  by the window. It is good flying  weather and two gliders are  already airborne, swooping  above the distant trees like  moths. As we munch our sandwiches a third daredevil leaps  from the lofty ramp and joins  ��� the fellow birdmen in the high,  blue reaches.  The cafe is deserted except  for an elderly fellow, sipping  reflectively on a whisky and  water. After a bit, he strikes up  a conversation. He turns out to  THURSDAY, SEPT. 11  5:30 P.M.

We  discuss the recent death of Gordon Gibson, the old 'Bull of the  Woods' whom we all knew. The  road builder reveals that he has  a son working as a faller at  McNab Creek. By sheer coincidence this happened to be my.  last camp. I tell him as much  and we marvel briefly at the  serendipity of it all. We finish  our coffees, bid the friendly  oldtimer goodbye and resume  our journey.  The last, brief leg of the run is  without incident. We cut north  at the outskirts of Agassiz, tool  past the Sasquatch statue with  its uplifted rock and enter the  picturesque lakeside village for  the first time ih several years.  Harrison Hot Springs is obviously enjoying a successful  tourist season. The roomy  streets are swarming with  holidayers; the man-made  beach is equally crowded and  the various bistros, sidewalk  cafes, beer gardens and souvenir shops are doing a brisk  trade.  Yvonne observes that this is  the first time we have seeri Harrison in, sunny weather. Our  previous visits always seem to  have, fallen on overcast days.  We find the Arts Centre and  ask the whereabouts of Earle  Birney. He has just completed a  Writing Workshop and returned to his hotel. We head over  there.

Take cuttings of ' fiischia,  geraniums, hydrangeas and  heathers.  With regard to mulching, and  you haven't any leaves and  grasses, put a visible sign in.the  garden: "Wanted, Leaves and  Grasses", and people will be  doing nature a favour by having  them used for mulching. In  fact, along with seaweed, and  spoiled hay which is available  on this coast we can all build up  our soil for the future. It really  works, I personally am all in  favour of mulching, and it does  keep down the weeds if it is  thick -fchbugh and saves work  and conserves moisture.

Ii  I:  I  ���������:'������ Sometimes it's in the most unexpected places that you  find something special.  My colleague and I had spent a hot and busy morning  up in Sechelt and by the time 1:30 rolled around we were  both starting to feel serious pangs of hunger.  We didn't have a lot of time to spend so we decided on a  quick lunch at The Raven, right on the main street in  town.  Neither of us felt much like tackling a heavy hamburger,  although the menu includes a good variety of them. Instead we opted for fish and chicken. Both burgers on fresh  buns with plenty of mayonnaise and crunchy lettuce.  It was too hot for fries and the alternative turned out to  be just right for the day. The Raven serves a wonderful  potato salad - the kind your mother probably packed off  with you to the beach for summer picnics.  The real treat, however, was the dessert. Milkshakes.  Real, honest to goodness milkshakes mixed up in those  metal shakers they used to have in the drug store when you  were a kid.  And Mike the proprietor, who has a taste for music  from the fifties and sixties, has 24 different flavours on  hand. There are actually 36 available but he can only get  24 at a time, he told us.  The service is prompt and friendly. Mike's a gregarious  sort of fellow and he turned out those delicious shakes  with quite a flourish.  The burgers are good, the potato salad is too. But it's  the shakes that make it a place to go back to. At least 24  times.  DRIVE IN- TAKE OUT  ; Chicken Shack - Cowrie St., Sechelt  :^885-7414. Open 11 am - 9 pm.

I  ���I  *���  What reaches speeds of up to  65 miles per hour, allows the  rider to recline on a comfortable  seat and yet uses no gasoline or  any fuel other than honest sweat  and a sturdy heart?  It's not a one-of-a-kind  machine or a new invention. It's  the recumbent bicycle, first built  in the 1930's but now gaining in  popularity.  The original idea was to cut  down wind resistance and it  turned out that the recumbent  -which means lying down or  reclining - bicycle had a much  more comfortable seat, making  it easier to ride than the conventionally designed, while the  lowered wind resistance made  for a slight increase in speed.  In fact, two relatively unknown English recumbent bike  riders became so successful in  world class racing that the  French based Cycling Federation banned the bicycles from  racing; even today recumbents  are not allowed in competition.  The energy crisis of the mid  seventies generated a lot of interest in transportation alternatives. It was then that the  Human-Powered-Vehicle Association was formed; its activities included the revival and  development of the recumbent  bicycle. Fully enclosed and  streamlined models have reached speeds exceeding 65 mph on  the level, enough to get a  speeding ticket anywhere!  These speeds seem fantastic  when most bicycle racers reach  only 35 to 40 mph on conventional ten-speeds. This is  because the conventional model  pays a heavy price in wind  resistance; at 20 mph fully 90  per cent of the rider's effort is  dissipated by wind resistance.  A recumbent bicycle such as  the one pictured, with no fairing  or body and a more upright  seating position than some,  loses only 65 to 70 per cent to  wind resistance. This translates  into a two to three miles per  hour gain in speed for the same  effort required to go 20 mph on  a conventional bicycle; At slow  speeds the difference is almost  immeasurable but in a head  wind the advantage is marked.  The average cyclist will be  more impressed with the comfort Of the sitting position than  anything else. Although a  strong rider on a ten-speed will  pass a weak recumbent rider,  they will.both agree that for  comfort the recumbent is hard  to beat.  The rider's head is in a  natural position; there is absolutely no strain orf the arms or  shoulders; the lower back is  supported; with a full width seat  Police News of the Week  SECHELT RCMP  On August 30 another Canadian flag was stolen, this time  from a private residence in  Sechelt.

The low position with the feet  forward, coupled with a longer  wheel base, make high speed  downhill runs safer and less  nerve-racking, although they do  take some getting used to. However, it isn't long before the  rider feels more secure, especially when it is realised that the  long wheel base doesn't present  a problem in making sharp corners.  After riding almost 15,000  kilometres this writer has never  had a problem with being spotted by cars on Jhe road, although the rider's head is some  18 inches lower than on a ten-  speed. .  There is one thing to remember; in rainy weather a front  fender is indispensible; without  it the spray hits the face and,  fender or not, the rain has a  clear shot at the lap and front of  the body. j  Touring, commuting and recreational cyclists are turning to  recumbent bicycles more aiid  more. They are manufactured  in specialty stores in California  and most cycling magazines  have them advertized although  they are rarely seen in these  parts (other than the one  above).  Comfort, safety and speed  and the low cost of maintenance  makes them a wise choice. See  you on the road! -  AUTOMOTIVE  NEED TIRES?

I    I  I    I  I  an experiences  by Penny Fuller  Have you ever stood in your  yard at 4 p.m. on a Friday afternoon, at the end of July, just  before the long weekend, and  watched the thunder clouds roll  inexorably toward you? Of  course you have!  That's what I call a  plutonian-type mini-experience.  You still have choices about  how you'll spend your weekend.  You can still go camping, have  your picnic, or play baseball if  you choose.  Or you can get yourself a  good book, dry firewood and  prepare for a power failure. But  no matter how many people  stand in their yards chanting  "Blow over, blow over," you  just know that the storm is going to hit.  Good old Pluto! Smallest  planet, farthest out and slowest  moving (from our perspective),  it packs a major wallop on our  lives as it moves through the  heavens. This is the planet of  death and rebirth.  It's important to remember  that last part when Pluto passes  over an important position in  your natal chart. The effects of  Pluto are never what you'd  describe as 'comfortable'.  (Unless you're the kind of person who enjoys earthquakes,  avalanches and that sort of  thing.) But that's the nature of  major change.  Puberty, menopause, adolescence and hitting your 65th birthday can all be disorienting, to  say the least. But they are a  necessary part of growth and  development, as are the life  changes brought by Pluto.  Those of you who were born  between October 24 and  November 3, in any year, have  already been experiencing the  affect of Pluto passing over  your natal sun. It has also been  causing disturbances in the lives  of those born between: April 21  and May 1, January 21 and 31,  July 24 and August 3, February  19 and March 1, and June 22  and July 2.

It's important to remember that  personal power can be usecUto  create, encourage and nurture  positive growth in yourself and  others. Or it can be used to  dominate, obstruct and coerce.  If you use your personal  power the first way, great things  can be accomplished in whatever direction you focus. If you  choose the second path, you will  find your way blocked, your  desires frustrated and your  sense of self threatened.  This has also been a time of  letting go, clearing out the  debris in your life that is holding  back your personal evolution. It  can be a painful process. We  often hold onto people and situations that make us perfectly  miserable, only because they are  familiar and therefore less  frightening than life without  them.  However, at this time in your  life, these changes will come.  You have the choice of gracefully accepting the inevitable and  learning important life lessons  from the changes that take  place, or fighting tooth and nail  to hold on to what is familiar.  In which case you will be left  battered, bruised and  thoroughly miserable.  The good news is that the  worst is over. You have already  moved into the rebirth stage, or  are about to. Now is the time to  think about the changes in your  life over the past three or so  years. Look at yourself with  brutal honesty and learn what  lessons you can. Eventually you  will look back on this as an important stage of development in  your life.  Having  M*aen^iw*x*x*iiii^.T*tAMw*t,�����'''^,^>^''i'^ ^  by Deborah Pageau .  .,.,. Haying babies: ^there's  nothing to it" said the ddctor to  ���s|Eirletiin: Gone with the Wind.  Simple for him I suppose...hii's  never done it! T wonder what  Melanie would have said if she  had heard that?#  . *.;     vi  It's a common enough thing,  though. We were taught in  Grade 7 that a baby is born  every two minutes in Canada,  10 per minute in the world. The  birth rate has declined over the  past 20 years, but even so, the  majority of women still have at  least one baby in their lives. For  those who do not, by choice.or  by fate, it is still usually a matter  that receives a lot of attention:  if they choose to remain  "single" (unreproduced, that is)  or if they are unable tb bear .a  child, they both end up spending almost as much time thinking, talking, feeling, readingYin-  deed working on the problem,  as if they had one. Having  babies is a big force in the lives  of women of child-bearing age.  And what about he rest of the  people in the world? The males,  the younger and older females.  They may not feel the impact  quite as intensely, but the influence is still there. The male is  the other half necessary for having a baby: in this society, he  may be labelled more  favourably if he raises or supports children.  As the children grow into  adolescents, their lives, bodies  and personalities are forever  altered by the power to have  babies. And once that is over,  and the babies start having  babies of their own, the third  generation is created, made up  of people who rarely feel old  enough to be called aunt, uncle,  grandparents.  We're all involved, some  more directly than others, but  involved nevertheless. I think  that's enough reason to have a  column like this., one where we  can air some of the issues,  thoughts, feelings, events, the  comedies and the tragedies.  Having babies is after all one of  the building blocks on which  our "civilized" society is based  -if it weren't for women having  babies, who would keep our  Minister of Labour busy working on unemployment? Who  would Santa visit in the midwinter festivities that fattens the  pockets of many a merchant?  Who would pay the taxes that  help support the aged in their  retirement years? Who would  look up at you, reach up in  trustful innocence and give you  that tiny kiss that mends your  heart?  Everything, from nets to oyster cages, electronics to fancy aluminum boats, was on display at last week's  highly successful Aquaculture Conference. ���Ray Smith photo  At Cap College  Persky on politics  Stan Persky, well known  broadcaster, writer, and instructor in Political Studies, is giving  a course at the Sechelt campus  of Capilano College in B.C. and  Canadian Politics; Thursday  nights beginning early in  September.  "This course reflects the fact  that politics is not just about  parties and elections, but about  how people in communities  choose to live together. In that  sense - everybody is political,"  says Persky.  Political Studies 104 is a  chance to "talk politics without  getting into brutal arguments."  Persky suggests that the course  is ' 'an alternative to breaking up  marriages or creating bad relations with families over political  questions...in the class you can  argue in a safe, stress-free environment."  The course, offered for the  first time this term in Sechelt,  needs no pre-requisites, and can  be taken for credit or for in?..,-.,  terest by people who are, as Per- J  sky puts it, "trying to figure out  what to do next in living  together in communities."  Discussion and lecture are  combined in this format, and  evalutation is based on several  essays, for those taking the  course for transfer credit.  Stan Persky also instructs at  Capilano College in North Vancouver; is a broadcaster who is  the B.C. Political Correspondent   for  CBC's  Morningside  program; and is the writer of  many books, including Son of  Socred, Bennett II, and  American, The Last Domino.  Students can register for  Political Studies 104 by calling  the Sechelt Campus at 885-9310  after 12:30 weekdays, or by  dropping in to the office on Inlet Avenue. Classes are 6 to 9  p.m. Thursday evenings for 14  sessions.  Calling volunteers  The Public Health Baby  Clinic in Sechelt needs a  volunteer to help the Moms  while they attend the clinic,  every second Wednesday from  1:15 to 3:15 p.m. in the Bethel  Baptist Church. In Gibsons, the  Baby Clinic also requires a  helper with their Moms' drop-in  program on Tuesday afternoons  from 1:15 to 3:15 p.m. in the  ;Sch6ol Board Office building.  Another vital program on the  Sunshine Coast is the Telephone  Tree, which requires phoners to  contact shut-ins on a regular  basis. If you are a shut-in  yourself and looking for an outside interest, this program could  provide this opportunity!

This initiative calls for a more  modern intergrated transportation system that will link B.C.  coastal communities from Vancouver north to Prince Rupert,  and emphasises the potential for  . a modern merchant marine fleet  to service small coastal communities.  The liberal caucus heard  Wilson speak of the economic  potential of the coastal communities of B.C., which Wilson  called the "B.C. Rim".  "We hear a lot about the  Pacific Rim, and it's trade potential, but coastal communities  have been forgotten as a result of  the inward looking, centralist  view of the current  government." said Wilson.  Wilson's work showsydearly  that coastal communities of B.C.  were at one time a vital part of  the provincial economy. "Today  they have been left isolated, and  the concerns of the local people  ignored. The Liberal party in  B.C. is determined to change  that."  "This is something that I can  get started on right away," said  Wilson, who claimed that the  general economic malaise now  experienced by coastal communities is a direct result of a  lack of adequate transportation.  The study examined the costs  of road upgrading with particular  emphasis on the highway from  Sechelt to Lund, which according to Wilson will logically  follow the hydro right of way.  In addition to the Sechelt,  Lund upgrading, the highway  out of Bella Coola was considered. "When you think of the  amount of material that is hauled  over that road, it must be one of  the cheapest routes in the province, if measured on a per user  cost model," said Wilson. The  government is paving slowly  from the interior to the coast,  although it is a long slow process.  This study calls for major  changes within the B.C. Ferry  Corporation, such as the integration of the B.C. Ferries into the Highways function to  reduce rates. Secondly,.it emphasises the need for a ferry link  from Bella Coola to Bella Bella,  and having the Comox Powell  River ferry based in Powell River  to accommodate an early sailing  to the island. The study also calls  for a reduced rate for excursion  fares to help promote the circle  route through the Sunshine  Coast, Powell River, and the  Island.  The work goes on to call for a  modern small ship building  plant, that will build craft designed to meet the particular needs  of the B.C. coast. Such a plant  would be located along the  coast, and would attract private  investment.  "According to people more  expert than I am," Wilson said,  "we are in the dark ages when it  comes to vessels designed"... for  specialized goods, such as people, along with multi purpose  craft," Already in the Pender  Harbour area there is a private  business that is looking into the  building of pleasure craft, and  that's to be encouraged, according to Wilson.  continued on page four  The  MacKenz i e  Why We're Called Mackenzie  If you tell someone that you  live in the Mackenzie electoral  district, chances are they will ask  you how things are going "up  north",,The fact is that Mackenzie, B.C. is well north of the  ^boundaries of Mackenzie riding.  ��� So why is it that this long ribbon  of coastal communities is.called;  ^^Jylj-ckerizie riding?  -^i*tK��e riding itself extends from  '^fPbrt   Mellon   at - the   extreme  ^southern end to Ocean Falls at  - Its** northern  perimeter.   Its  an  area   of   54,273   square   kilometres,   105  polling  divisions,  and 21,151 registered voters. In  area,  it  is one of the  largest  districts in the province.  It is also a riding that has'a uni  que and varied history. It was in  1793 that Alexander Mackenzie  followed the now famous  Mackenzie trail from the junction  of the Nechako and Fraser rivers  to the coast, arriving at the Indian settlement at Bella Coola.  The significance of the journey  is two fold. It was the first Coast  to Coast crossing of .the North;  American continent north of  Mexico, and second, it helped  establish the continental claim to  what is now the Nalion of  Canada: It is from that crossing  that the riding received its name.  The population of the riding is  a true reflection of the Canadian  mozaic, with a large native  population, and over 36% of it-  population using English as a second language. Its economy is  resource based, with forestry  ranking number one, and fishing  number two.  Just to its eastern perimeter is  Mt. Waddington which at  13,260 ft. is the highest peak in  B.C. To the north east is  Tweedsmuir Provincial park the  largest and most spectacular in  B.C. The tourist potential in the  area is the greatest in B.C. with  spectacular scenery, glaciers and  icefields, hidden valleys, great  sport fishing, and some of the  finest recreational boating areas  in the world.:  Mackenzie riding, rich in people and resources, is just starting  to bloom. It needs careful nurturing,;'and sound resource and  social planning. Given that, the  potential is fantastic.  School's In....   Is Education Out?  It's a Family Affair  The long summer days provide an ideal opportunity to get  out and meet the people, and  with school out, the art of campaigning soon becomes a family  affair.  Here daughter Christina, 11,  and son Mathew, 10, (Liz took  the picture) stand with their dad  next to the entrance sign to the  MacKenzie electoral district at  the base of the steep, narrow,  winding road down into the  Bella Coola valley.  Asked how they liked campaigning, Christina remarked  "It's neat because you get to go  to a whole bunch of different  places and stuff." Mathew's  comment was a little less illuminative, "It's sort of fun" he  remarked.  "I'll leave the politics to Gordon," was Elizabeth's remark, "I  enjoy meeting the people and  discovering new communities."  Elizabeth, or Liz to her friends, is  known for her independent  views on matters of substance. "I  support Gordon in what he is  doing, but I won't be trotted out  to stand beside him for the  media."  As for dad. "It's very important to spend time with people in  the riding, arid listen tb What  they are saying. I have proven  that I won't be a 28 day candidate nominated just before the  election, and never seen after."  As for involving the family.  Here it is September, already  and the air is filled with a strong  scent of deja vu. Think back to  the fall of 1982. The real estate  boom was over, the foundations  of the forestry, fishing, and mining industries were showing  some real cracks, and the Social  Credit government, having  pushed the per capita debt from  $1,433 in 1975 to $3,395 (the  highest  in  the  country)   were  Gortlbh Wilson Wiih-JaUghtcrChrl^tlnaahil son Mathew.  Wilson said, "Time with my  family is becoming a precious  commodity, I like to involve  them where it is practical. After  all isn't that what it is all about,  improving our communities to  make life for the families that live  within them, better?"  looking for a scape goat, and a  mega project.  At that time the scape goat  was the public service employee,  the teachers, and health care  workers. The mega project was  Northeast Coal. The official opposition, the N.D.P., sat silent,  waiting for their turn at bat. The  people of British Columbia sat  despondent and discouraged, if  not bored with the political  game.  The choice of the teachers was  a good one. Firstly there were  many problems within the  system. Secondly all of us have,  at one time or another and to  various levels, been to school, so  there is no shortage of opinion.  Thirdly, education, for the most  part, involves those most dear to  us, our children.  What transpired is history.  The one thing that Social Credit  can do well, is get re-elected.  They have proven that for thirty  of the last thirty-four years.  Their success is based on a  mixture of fear, conflict, and  diversion. Fear of the socialist  hordes, conflict to keep communities divided "left" from  "right", arid diversion to keep  the average voter from realizing  how completely incompetent  this government has been  So here we are, fall of 1986,  and we have a new face at the  head of this government but still  no improvement within the  educational system. To the contrary the situation is worse.  The Social Credit answer to  education was to remove funding to the extent that adequate  education for British Columbians, at both "the K to 12 *_nd  post secondary levels, is at risk.  They then embarked on a "let's  talk about schools" project which  was just that. talk.  Today B.C.  spends less on  education than any other province. The cost of post secondary education to students wanting to enter trade school,- college and university has gone up  by forty-three percent. The funding profiles of the above mentioned institutions have over the  last three years been cut by a  cumulative average of thirty percent.  The point to remember here is  that while these cuts in educational spending have been going  on, the provincial taxes paid by  British Columbians have been  going up. Restraint didn't mean  lower taxes. Furthermore over  the last three years, Federal  transfer funds earmarked for  education have gone up by  20%, but the provincial contributions have gone down by  46.7%.  What must be clear, is that if  there is a need for local school  boards to go to the tax base for  additional funding, it's not  because there was no money, it's  because the provincial government chose to spend it on  something else. Even if the  government had applied only  the Federal share which was  given to education, the system  would be better off by a  graduated value of 12%.  The official opposition tell us  they will pump more money into  the system, and in a recent  response Mr. Hewitt said that the  government policy was to create  jobs not increase the wages of  those that have them. This suggests political posturing and  neither statement speaks to the  problem.  . , JFirstly in response to the  N.D^P. stand, more money per  se is not the issue. What is needed is a carefully drafted blueprint  for educational reform in B.C.  continued on page four  I  1  I  ''_  <_  F#  .  T_S  X  . .  I "I  i  I.

Gordon Wilson  Liberal Candidate  Mackenzie Alternative Why run  as a Liberal in a province that  has no elected Liberal?  Wilson Response Because of all  the political options that are  available to us, I believe  liberalism provides the greatest  scope for innovative, humane  and competent government. My  running as a Liberal gives all  those who want those qualities in  a government someone to vote  for.  Mackenzie Alternative But won't  those who vote Liberal just waste  their vote?  Wilson Response No. Look,  there is growing evidence that  the Liberals will hold the balance  of power in the next government. My election will put this  riding up front and centre for a  change, and even if one of the  other major parties do squeak  out a majority government we  will still be better off with a  Liberal.  Mackenzie Alternative How so?  Wilson Response This riding  needs a strong articulate voice,  one that will not only be heard  but   listened   to.   Let's   take  An Interview  to bring in regulations while at  the same time they managed to  wangle one quarter of a million  dollars from their comrades in  Victoria for the promotion of  . aquaculture in a venture called  Aqua West '86. That project has  been an unmitigated disaster and  is an embarrassment for all of us.  I, on the other hand, along with  others in the community, did the  necessary work to find a basis for  regulation, and we now have the  blueprint for just such regulation.  The point here isy that I was  listened to, not because I was a  Liberal/but because what I was  saying made sense, and I kept  up the vigil until something was  done. That's effective representation.  Jobs  Mackenzie Alternative You emphasize jobs, do you see that as  the number one problem facing  the people of this riding?  Wilson Response Yes. B.C. has  the second highest unemployment rate in Canada, and this  riding has the highest in B.C.  Mackenzie AlternativeWhat is  the answer? What will you do to  change that?  Wilson Response Look toward  local initiative, because that is  the source of 80% of the long  term jobs that are created. In  order to assist local initiative  three things must be put in place.  First, people must have access to  more money, and. a ready  source of more money is lower  taxes. British Columbians are the  most heavily taxed people in this  country.  Second, we must encourage  growth and competitiveness in  the private sector, and this can  be achieved by (a) a reduced  provincial tax against existing  and newly established B.C.  small businesses, (b) a small  business bond programme that  would assist small business with  initial and interim financing, and  (c) encourage manufacturing  along with value added processing within the Province.  Third, we need to seek innovative ways of redistributing  the jobs that exist now. Such options as a shorter work week, job  sharing, and early retirement incentives must be fully explored.  Mackenzie Alternative That all  sounds pretty good, but what  specifically can happen in this  riding?  Wilson Response In the: first  place, coastal B.C. needs to  develop a transportation network. It's impossible to move  goods to market unless there is  some kind of network in place.  What I suggest is a combination  of land, sea and air. Both private  and public sector dollars will help  in this area.  Mackenzie   Alternative   That  aquaculture for example. Here is sounds like government make  an industry that has some poten- work projects.  rial, but it needed to��have some  regulations, there was a growing  conflict, and a real danger that  uncontrolled growth would actually harm the coastal economy  not help it.  Our   M.L.A.   waffled   in   the  Wilson Response Not necessarily. To be sure some government  money needs to go into the  transportation function, but the  market for specialized sea craft,  both recreational and commercial, is wide open. What's to stop  ..'<fi-ji  ���'���Ml ���_..��-  . _.  ii '.(fr'i  Madeenzie Aternat-ue O.K., so  you put people to work building  roads, and encourage shipbuilding, what else?  Wilson Response Don't  underestimate the importance of  that function. Road construction  is a major employer, and it provides a needed infrastructure for  commerce. It's critically important, and the coast is desperately  lacking an adequate transportation network.  Mackenzie Alternative Does this  mean you are in favour of a ferry  from Bella Coola to Bella Bella?  Wilson Response Yes, but not  just by itself. It has to be part of a  wider network to connect Coastal  communities.  : Mackenzie Alternative And once  we're well connected}?  Wilson Response .Private  Silviculture contracts should be  let with companies that specialize  in manual application. Forestry  is the backbone of this economy,  but we ship most bf the raw logs  off the coast, with new "value  : added", manufacture there are  many specialized wood products  that could develop on the coast,  if there was a good transportation network to get the finished  product to market at a competitive price: .'���'���__  Mackenzie Alternative So, you  advocate a revitalized forestry  sector?  Wilson Response Yes, but in  order to do that some changes  need to be made in terms of the  contracts let to the companies  that are cutting. Small operators  have difficulty getting funding  without a guarantee of logs.  That's where we can help.  Small business manufacture is a  growing sector and needs our  encouragement. The difficulty is  getting the goods to market, and  that is only solved through adequate transportation system.  A New Economy  Mackenzie Alternative So you  see a bright future for the coast?  Wilson Response Sure! But only  if we change our attitude and approach to traditional economic  thinking. We need innovative  thinking, and a certain amount  of risk taking concentrating on  small scale, intensive, decentralized systems, not mega projects. It's mega projects that produced the economic crisis we are  in now.  Mackenzie'. .'Alternative Do you  have an example?  Wilson Response Alright, let's  take energy. Why - should B.C.  Hydro with its $8.5 billion dollar  debt hold "a monopoly bri electrical' power production? Suppose I was to decide that we  should deal with two problems at  once. One is domestic sewage :  disposal, and the other is electrical power generation. We  know that with proper design,  our sewage treatment plants can  produce. through anaerobic  digestion, methane gas.  Methane, or natural gas is a  clean burning, efficient fuel that  can run a generator. Now, these  generators will have "to be  designed to meet the special  needs of: coastal communities;  especially those that are, isolated  6r;af<tl|'e end of the power .grid;  apply great quantities ot toxic  chemicals to get rid of vegetation. Suppose we were to encourage a private contractor to  run goats, or sheep under those  lines. That clears the vegetation,  provides both a meat and cheese  industry, wool from the sheep,  and kid leather from the goats all  of which can stimulate commercial development. Those are just  two, I have many more.....  Mackenzie Alternative But are  they practical?  Wilson Response Yes, and they  will develop products that are  renewable and of lasting value.  Mackenzie Alternative If that's  the case then why haven't we  done it?  Wilson Response It's a question  of attitude, and a lack of  economic necessity. Take: solar  energy, we haven't even scratched the surface of that source of  energy in terms of its long term  potential, yet we have spent  billions of dollars developing  nuclear power, and paid a high  social price for it.  It was only when oil prices were  high, and the great promise'of  free atomic energy made in the  1950's didn't materialize,. that  any thought was given to solar  energy, yet it has great potential.  Mackenzie Alternative You  almost sound  culture..."  Wilson response That's what i  mean about attitude. It's not  counter"anything,' it's plain common sense! If you can solve a  problem, and create a lasting  viable industry.at the same time.-  it's common.sense to do it. :    y  -.. -_.���_.'-.-..-  counter  Education  Mackenzie Alternative Let's  move on. Where do you stand  on education?  Wilson Response That's a big  question. Let's deal with primary  and secondary first. A Liberal  government will immediately  establish an Advisory Committee  on Public Education, and repeal  the interim Education Finance  Act.;';  Mackenzie Alternative What will  :��� that-do?, '"y: y' r" y; "���';-'y:,.:.

Independent Newspaper Supplement  Wilson Response There are two  levels of concern. The first deals  with funding formulas, - and the  balance of control between the  Ministry of Education and locai  school boards. The second deals  with aspects of curriculum such  as programs for children with  special needs, assessment of student learning, and the involvement of business and labour in  vocational training.  Mackenzie Alternative And the  post secondary sector?  Wilson Response We will restore  elected college boards, with the  majority: of members being  elected from within communities, and secondly we will  review the formula funding programme to more accurately provide for programme variations in  different parts of the province.  Most importantly we will stop  diverting Federal monies earmarked for education.  Mackenzie Alternative What is  you view of the education  system?  Wiifeon Response It's hard to  generalize about the system,  because there are many differences in terms of student  needs, and so on. One of the  major problems, as I see it is that  we have not been able to realize  that you can have equality in the  system without the system being  uniform..; y . "V  Mfackenzie Alternative What do  you mean?  Wilson Response The educational needs of the community bf  Bella Coola may. beyquite different from;, the educational  needs of the, people from Powell  River. What I am saying is that  there must be adequate funding  for a core curriculum, what we  used to call the three' R's.  Beyond that, each community  should have greater flexibility in  determining what programme  are desirable, and a funding formula should reflect that flexibility.  Mackenzie Alternative What  would you include in the core  curriculum?  Wilson Response I am a strong  advocate for increased literacy in  this society. While the maths and  sciences are ��very important,  'there must be greater emphasis  placed on the written arts. Very  basic skills such as reading and  writing are often not developed  and that is a major failure within  the system. Social history, and a  sound foundation in the basic  principles of geography are important in a core.  Mackenzie Alternative Would  " you play down the sciences?  Wilson Response No, 1 would  give equal weight to all courses  in the core. Look, the critical role  of education is riot to shape an  individual into a mold so that  they are identified as a scientist,  or a poet; What is important is  that our youth are taught a set of  basic skills, and that they learn  social values, so that they can  choose what they wish to do in  later life, and become socially  aware.

There is'ky  a need for major reform in the  area of extended medical care in  this province  continued on page four Here's Where We Stand on  The MacKenzie Alternative   3  FORESTRY  A Liberal Government in British  Columbia will:  ��� maximize job creation potential and economic returns to the  forest land base by greatly increasing the commitment to reforestation and silviculture practices;  ��� develop new incentive  systems to encourage private investment in forest renewal and  enhancement, while seeing to it  that the Provincial government  performs an appropriate supervisory role;  ___. facilitate the structural readjustment of the forest sector,  especially on the coast, by encouraging the adoption of  second-growth plantation  technology and the maximization of B.C.'s high quality, long  fibre production potential;  ��� encourage the development  of strong, regionally-based  secondary and tertiary industry  within the forestry sector. Entry  into higher value-added markets  would create many long-term!  jobs and reduce the industry's  reliance on raw log export  markets.  ��� act quickly on the recommendations of the Wilderness Advisory Committee as they pertain  to the expansion of existing  parks and the establishment of  new ones;  ��� cooperate  with the" federal ,  government in establishing a national park in the South Moresby  area  of the  Queen  Charlotte  Islands;  ��� renegotiate any existing  leases > and contracts which  restrict public access to B.C.'s  parks;  present omissions within five  years. Initiate discussions with  Washington State authorities to  develop a cooperative and consistent approach to solving the  acid rain problem;  ��� increase the penalty for those  caught illegally dumping toxic  wastes so that fines reflect the  amount of damage caused;  ��� join with other provinces and  the federal government to create  a safe PCB storage and destruction facility aiming at the same  time for the complete replacement of PCB filled transformers;  ��� stop the use- of herbicide  spraying in all watershed areas,  marshland areas, and areas  upland to both surface and deep  water well users;  ��� provide incentives to help industries reduce and recycle  hazardous waste and assist  municipalities in improving  sewage treatment facilities;  BCDC would use the money so  raised to establish an Entrepreneur's Development Fund  which would lend, at commercial rates and only after appropriate screening, to individuals with valid business  plans unable to borrow through  commercial channels;     ;  ��� give all small businesses, existing or newly established, that  qualify for the federal small  business tax rate a three year  provincial income tax holiday.  Such an initiative would in time  generate enough additional investment and employment to offset much of the initial loss of  revenue to the province:  ��� require the Ministry of Industry and Small Business to be  of more direct assistance to  B.C.'s small businesses in  market studies .and analysis for  the marketing of their goods and  services in and outside the province;..  G  3) the elimination of provincial  taxes that now place an undue  burden on the tourism industry;  4) encouraging private  developers to establish new  tourist attractions throughout the  Province;  ��� establish a Lottery and Gaming Commission to monitor and  review all existing and proposed  gambling activities within the  province. This Commission will  also be charged with ensuring.  that the possible negative impacts associated with these activities do not occur in British  Columbia.  AQUACULTURE  AND FISHERIES  A Liberal Government in British  Columbia will:  ��� develop guidelines as to the  size and densities of fish farms  allowable and the pollution control regulations that should  govern industry operations;  The Full Liberal Platform available September 12th.  ��� end the practice of disposing  toxic industrial waste in  municipal landfills., A provincial  inquiry into current and improved, methods of transporting and  handling toxic and explosive  substances would also be  established. That inquiry would  pay particular attention to protecting ground water sources  from toxic contamination;  ENVIRONMENT  A Liberal Government in British  Columbia will:  ��� enact legislation increasing  public and interest group involvement in environment  decision-making. This would be  done by holding more public  hearings and by publishing  detailed accounts both of hearings procedures and the rationale for all the final decisions.  Moreover, a Liberal government  would consider assisting interveners at environmental hearings to recover some of their  costs;  ��� amend the Labour Code to  ensure that an employee cannot  be dismissed for reporting an act  of environmental contamination  or degradation to the appropriate authorities;  ��� create a Wilderness Act to  establish what areas are to be  designated as park and  wilderness areas in an overall attempt to develop a detailed land  use management strategy, using  public processes. That Act would  also lay out procedures for  -resolving conflicting claims on  the resource base from forestry,  tourism, mining, fisheries and  agriculture;  ��� not permit any logging of  Meares Island, South Moresby,  the Stein Valley, or the Stikine  River study area because they  are ecologically unique, a fundamental component of B.C.'s  natural heritage, and of more  ; value.    (esthetica"  "economically) to British  bfens in their natural state'than in  any other;  ��� place control orders on major  acid gas producers requiring  them to substantially : decrease  TRANSPORTATION  A Liberal Government in British  Columbia will:  Provincial Transportation:  ��� adopt an integrated and coordinated provincial transportation  and commuter transit program  that allows for the legitimate concerns of regional districts;  ��� maintain the present level of  service on the B.C. Railway  system and also consider an expansion of the level of passenger  service to communities served by  B.C. Rail, especially during the  summer tourist season;  ��� upgrade the freeway system  through such measures as the  metering of traffic volumes on  access lanes as well as the construction of additional lanes for  public transit vehicles; -  ��� restructure the B.C. Ferry  rates to include a discount fare  for travellers using two or more  ferries on a single continuous  journey;  ��� work to develop an integrated transportation network  of highways, ferries and a merchant marine fleet to service  "B.C. Rim" communities and  enhance the coastal economy;  ��� consider the integration of the  B.C. Ferry system into the  highways function in a manner  that would eliminate or, at the  very least, greatly reduce the  fares charged to passengers. As  a first step in this direction, permanent residents of Vancouver  Islands, the Gulf Islands and the  Sunshine Coast would pay  greatly reduced ferry fees.  SMALL BUSINESS  A Liberal Government in British  Columbia will:  ��� establish a "Small Business  ��� encourage marketing and  sales training as an elective program, in secondary schools and  as cooperative programs in the,  community colleges. These programs would be administered  jointly by small business and the  schools involved. Such a program would allow those involved  to gain work'' experience and  training and thus facilitate their  efforts to obtain full-time  employment;  ��� to facilitate equity funding of  small and medium size enterprises, establish a British Columbia Stock Savings Plan similar to  those now operating in a number  of other provinces. Tax incentives to encourage profit sharing  plans and employee stock  ownership will also be introduced.  TOURISM  A Liberal Government in British  Columbia will:  ��� create a new Ministry of  Tourism, Recreation and Conservation. This ministry, combining existing government departments and staff, would facilitate  the coordination of policy within  government and develop a  coherent, long-term tourism  strategy for the Province;  ��� establish a B.C. Tourism  Board (modelled after similar  boards in Wales and England), a  majority of whose members are  industry representatives. Such a  board would ensure a greater  level of industry-government interaction and consultation. Its  duties will include: monitoring  duplication and wastage in  government spending on  tourism, ensuring public accountability with respect to tourism  expenditures, developing and  strengthening tourism marketing  programs, and monitoring  assistance programs targeted at  the industry;  ��� implement a post-Expo  tourism strategy which would  combine aggressive marketing  with the improvement of our  tourism infrastructure. The latter.'  would be accomplished through:  1) the development and implementation of a low interest  m estaousn an independent inquiry into the possible environmental and economic impacts of the aquaculture industry, with specific emphasis on  fin.fish farming, on foreshore,  ecosystems, and, conversely,  the effects of log storage and  upland developments upon  aquaculture;  . ��� instruct the Ministry of Lands,  Parks and Housing to establish  appropriate foreshore areas  where the aquaculture/mari-  culture industry can develop free  of conflict with existing land  uses;  ��� facilitate the transfer of new  technology from universities,  research institutions, and other  information sources to the  aquaculture industry in B.C.  Assistance will also be provided  both to basic research in  aquaculture and to market  development;  ��� in order to enhance the industry through local ownership,  put in place regulations governing foreign investment in  aquaculture;  British Columbia.* The 'Bonds','  issued at market rates by the  British Columbia Development  Corporation, would be  guaranteed   by   the   Province.  wide'r post secondary tourism  training programs that would  provide both competent  management and qualified  tourism planners;  ��� develop in cooperation with  the federal government a comprehensive and properly balanc-  ' ed Pacific Ocean Fisheries  policy;  ��� work with the federal government to ensure that  technological advancements are  introduced to the industry;   .  ��� ensure the continuation of  the Salmonid Enhancement Program arid take' positive steps to  rehabilitate a number of West  Coast spawning streams, so as to  ensure a viable commercial,  recreational; and native fishery.  SOCIAL SERVICES  A Liberal Government in British  Columbia will:  ��� immediately compensate for  the sharp decline in the real level  of social assistance rates since  ��� 1932 by a 20% indexing of  those-: rates .ipeindlng the  establishment of a rationalized  k income; seicv^prog^miyy  ���_ ��� also pending die implementation of an income security program, increase immediately the  - amount of money that can be  earned by social assistance recipientswithout loss of benefits to  the level now allowed by the  federal government;  ��� recognize the urgent need to  make cost-efficient, preventive  and supportive social services  available, not only to individual  and families receiving welfare  but also to others who nevertheless require professional  counselling or other assistance;  ��� utilize the developmental  skills of professionals in the social  services field by creating integrated community service  teams to meet individual, family  and community needs;  ��� establish two permanent advisory committees consisting of:  (i) a cross-section of community,  professional, and client groups,  and (ii) a selected group of people with expertise in income-  security issues. These groups will  advise respectively on the  establishment and ongoing  operations of a Department of  Integrated Community Services  and a Department of Income  Security Programs.

Gordon Wilson and  John turner discuss Provincial/ Federal relations.  continued from page two  Most of the students in school today will be earning the bulk of  their income in the twenty-first  Century, and all indicators seem  to suggest that the traditional  model, worker/manager will no  longer apply. The industrial age  with its labour intensive mode of  production is over. The  challenge lies in developing a  strategy in education to prepare  young British Columbians for  that future. This strategy must be  developed in a dispationate,  non-political forum where the  vested interests of the "right"  and "left" don't hinder its progress. Once we know what our  priorities are then restoration of a  funding base that will accomplish  the task is in order.  Secondly, in response to Mr.  Hewitt,-British Columbians are  not inclined to believe your  government despite the appearance of change created by  Vander Zalm, because the  government hasn't changed,  and it has the singularly worst  record of employment creation  in the entire country.'  Still, deja vu is in the air. Our  children have faithfully returned  to an unchanged school system,  and despite the appearance of  change at the top, a tired old set  of faces in cabinet face a per  capita provincial debt that is at a  record high and fumble for a  new mega-project.  The official opposition, that  promises a "new beginning" based on a tired, old agenda, waits  for their turn at bat. Many British  Columbians are so demoralized  they have turned the game off  entirely, and that's unfortunate..  Education should not be a  political issue, and all those who  agree should work to free it from  the pendulum of political  thought that swings in this province. Only then can an objective look at our school system  take place, and the priority that  education deserves be realized iri  the allocation of provincial  dollars.  Transportf  continued from page one  The study takes into account .  the overall goal for decentralization of capital and rural job creation, along with a sound strategy  for tourism. "There is no point in  trying to create investment in an  area, if there is no way of  moving the goods to market,  whether those 'goods' are products or people." said Wilson.  Asked about the cost of such a  scheme,    Wilson    said   that  preliminary figures suggest that a  fully intergrated network would."  cost about $60 million, averaged  over a five year period. "That  sounds like a lot of money, but  consider that it will be a major'"  employer, and will also involve ,  private investment, that will produce long term jobs. After all it's  considerably less than the Coquihalla highway,  which truck  drivers are avoiding because of  steep grades."  Coastal transportation will  become a major plank in the  Liberal campaign during ������ this  next election.  Mackenzie Alternative What  would you like to see done?  Wilson Response Two things.  First, there is a need to develop a  hew kind of retirement complex  where people can buy in or rent  a horiie where they can remain  independent, but may gradually  access more medical care as  their dependency for such care is  required.  The Liberal party is advocating  something that we call "medi-  flats" which would allow for.  couples to continue living  together despite the long-term  medical disability of one spouse.  Mackenzie Alternative ��� How  would this be funded?  Wilson Response The residential  portion of such facilities would  be self funding, with costs based  on income, a percentage of pension income for example. This  would significantly reduce  government expenditures-  because the cost of the system  would only be associated with  the direct cost of the long-term  care.  Mackenzie Alternative So it  would be like subsidized housing?  Wilson Response No. more like  a residential co-op project.  Mackenzie Alternative And this  riding might get one of these  complexes?  Wilson Response I would think  this riding would get more than  one. Retirement is now an industry in this country, and our  coastal communities are a  natural place for people to want  to retire. A more innovative approach to providing retirement  amenities is long overdue in  B.C.  Chance for Change  Mackenzie Alternative What do  you think your chances are of  winning this riding?  Wilson Response I learned early  ' not to try to forecast the future. I  am making a solid, productive  contribution to this riding before  an election has been called. I  know I can offer the voters a  strong, articulate voice to speak  on their behalf. Look. I am not  tied to either end of the political  spectrum, and that's good for  the people of MacKenzie.  because no matter which of the  other two parties form the.  gbverrihnetit Vwill hbt'be tarred !  with the enemy brush, and thus I  can be more effective.
