Array %%  .%  Vi*  &  **>��<*  ^VfV  a  by Joel Johnstone  Japanese technology and  Canadian assets are coming  together to create better job  security and environmental conditions at the Howe Sound pulp  mill in Port Mellon.  Last Monday, Bill Hughes,  vice-president of pulp and paper  manufacturing of Canfor Corporation's Howe Sound Pulp  Division, told a gathering of  local business, political and  press representatives that the  mill would undergo a $635  million expansion as part of a  new company formed by Canfor and newsprint giant, Oji  Paper Company Ltd. of Tokyo.  Canfor will contribute the  assets of the Howe Sound mill  and its West Coast Cellufibre  sawmill and chipping plant in  Vancouver and Oji would inject  $307.5 million into the 50-50  deal to form the Howe Sound  Pulp and Paper Company Ltd.  "We're starting deficit-free  with over $300 million in the  bank, which means we won't  face a $100 million in start up  costs," Hughes said. "That's a  very nice way to start up a company."  Hughes suggested that up to  $1 billion could be the total cost  once the plant expansion and an  additional newsprint manufacturing facilitv are completed in  1991.  MLA Harold Long said,  "It's good to see the foreign investment come in. It's actually  one of the biggest announcements for this town," because it  was generally feared the Port  Mellon mill would go the way  of the Ocean Falls example,  where a mill shut-down crippled  the economy of the town.  "One of the biggest things is  when they did a study in 1985  and (because of pollutants emitting from the plant) they were  told to shut down." Canfor was  looking at close to $20 million  to bring the plant into conformance with regulations by June.  Hughes said Canfor was also  looking at close to $200 million  to update the plant to meet  competetive world standards.  "Canfor," he said, "didn't  want to leave Howe Sound  behind. We felt there really  should be another product  developed at the mill." Now,  Canfor will be entering into the  newsprint market using the  world-class technology and information ability of Oji.  Oji operates the world's  largest newsprint plant at  Tomakai in Northern Japan,  producing 800 thousand tonnes of newsprint annually. With  this merger, the Howe Sound  mill will push its current 220  thousand tonne annual pulp  production to 365 thousand  tonnes.  The newsprint facility will be  geared towards 195 tonnes per  year, all of which will be  marketed by Oji to its Japanese  originating markets. Canfor will  market all pulp produced at the  plant through its Canfor Sales  Division.  Hughes stressed that one of  the benefits is they are not shipping raw materials abroad, but  a finished product.  The spinoff to the community will be some of the 450 constructions jobs created by the  project. Sixty-five people are  already on site tearing out old  equipment in preparation for  the next phase of expansion.  Two years ago Canfor invested  $70 million in paper press and  dryer  machinery  currently  in  operation.  Though sections of the plant  will be shut down as the rotation from old to new takes  place, Hughes said the mill only  stands to lay off 100 employees  temporarily. The 400 jobs  presently on payroll will remain  fixed at the 400 level because  'we are going to be faced with a  training program. Some are going to have to learn completely  new jobs.'  There has been some speculation at the plant itself about  those older employees nearing  pension who do not want to  enter into the learning cycle  again may be offered early  retirement packages.  Twelve percent of the mill's  employees have been with the  company over 25 years, 65 percent for more than 10 years, and  the  average  of the division's  workforce is 45 years of age.  Water usage, at 70 thousand  litres per day, will not be increased, but aside from the  mill's on-site 65 thousand  kilowatt hours per day power  generation, the mill will have to  receive guarantees from B.C.  Hydro that the mill will be able  to receive in excess of 350 thousand kilowatts per day purchased power.  Also, "In making the announcement, the principals of  Canfor and Oji stressed that  proceeding with this major investment in B.C. is contingent  on the successful conclusion of  their discussions with various  levels of government in a  number of important areas such  as security of additional wood  supply and satisfactory energy  costs," Canfor has stated.  Please turn to page 7  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast        25* per copy on news stands        December 14,1987    Volume 41     Issue 50  Presented on short notice  New foreshore policy  SJu^J;  The Foreshore Advisory Task  Force had barely an hour last  week to review and make  recommendations on a new  aquaculture policy being  drafted by the provincial  government. The 24 page draft  document was brought to the  task force meeting last Friday  and government officials requested that their recommendations be FAXed to Victoria that  afternoon.  , Hank Boas, of the Ministry  of L^ands and Forests, told the  meeting that changes had been  made, in the processing of  aquaculture leases ever since the  report by the Gillespie Commission had been released in 1985.  The policy draft, he explained,  was simply an attempt to formalize those changes to ensure  consistency.  Chairman Gordon Wilson  asked for clarification on the  different classifications of  tenure and when it was appropriate to register concerns.  He was told that when an 'Investigative Permit' was applied  for, a public notice is published  in local papers. At that time,  anyone who has comments to  make on the application should  do so.  An investigative permit is  issued for a period of one year.  However at the completion of  that year, the permit holder may  apply for a 'Licence of Occupation', which will allow development for up to 10 years, or a  lease, which could ensure tenure  of up to 30 years.  The public may not be notified of the new applications,  Sechelt Mayor Bud Koch and newly elected Alderman Nancy MacLarty shake hands at last week's inaugural meeting (see story Page 28). _Ken Collins photo  Accepts gravel extraction as inevitable  Koch addresses Sechelt's future  Elk sign located  The mystery of the disappearance of the instructional  sign regarding elk on the coast has been solved.  An employee of the Ministry of Environment & Parks  who was driving through the area, noticed that the sign  had been blown down, so he loaded it on to his truck and  transported it to Surrey for safekeeping.  Unfortunately conservation officer, Jamie Stephen, was  not notified of this, but all is well now and arrangements  are being made to have the sign re-erected on its location  near Ruby Lake.  unless the use to which the lease  will be put is different from that  for which an investigative permit was issued.  With that in mind, the task  force agreed to request that the  government eliminate a clause  in the draft policy which stated,  "Investigative permit applications do not require advertising,  however, an applicant may elect  to advertise in order to determine at any early point if there  are any public concerns regarding the site. The next clause,  they said, should be amended to  ensure that all initial applications are advertised.  At the same meeting, task  force members received a copy  of the first stage of a discussion  paper being prepared by the  ombudsman's office to look into administrative fairness,  which deals with the manner by  which government policy is administered to individuals, including corporations, in the  aquaculture industry.  Investigation by this office  has been prompted by numerous complaints from the public,  primarily coastal residents.  These included allegations that:  people have had little or no  meaningful input into the granting   of   aquaculture   leases;  Please turn to page 13  by Ken Collins  "It was a pretty black day,"  said Sechelt Mayor Bud Koch  commenting on meeting with  provincial authorities last Tuesday in Vancouver. He had attempted to pursuade the provincial government to consider a  canal through Sechelt as an  alternative to the proposed  Sechelt Indian Band conveyor  belt to Trail Bay for gravel extraction. He failed.  "I haven't slept for two  days," Koch confided in a  Coast News interview, "I keep  wondering how I could have  made a better presentation."  "Why was the canal so important?" asked the Coast  News.  "It was the key to  everything," replied Koch, and  he went on to outline his vision  for Sechelt.  The canal would serve as an  attraction similar to the synthetic beach at West Edmonton  Mall, but canals are expensive  toys. Who would pay for it?  "Fifty percent of the canal  would be paid from gravel," explained Koch. "The whole of  Porpoise Bay would be a  marina."  Once easy access was gained  to Porpoise Bay, Koch envisioned a possibility of attracting  sports fishermen like no one  has ever done before, utilizing  some of the spin-offs from  aquaculture research. He  foresaw Sechelt Inlet being a  giant fishpond stocked with  genetically bred fish that would  not travel. A sports fisherman's  dream and a wonder of the  world.  Many, if not most, of the  developments that Koch saw as  complementing the canal are in  some sort of stage of development now and will be completed  but in the Mayor's own words,  'everything else pales in comparison' and he is searching for  a new key.  One of the projects on the  books is an 18 hole executive  golf course.  "What is an executive golf  course?" asked the Coast News.  "It is one that is short so that  a round of golf may be completed in less time than on a  regular course," explained  Koch. He went on to describe  the driving range and pitch and  putt that would go with it.  "It will be located beside Kin-  nikinnick Park and the arena,"  he said. "In fact, the arena with  its lounge will be the 19th hole."  He stated it would not compete with the existing golf  course but would complement  it.  He sees the municipal offices  as eventually ending up at  Rockwood Lodge. There are  plans to jack up the convention  hall at the lodge and Koch sees  no reason the offices could not  be housed underneath. He also  plans to search for a location on  the Gibsons side of Sechelt for  the Chamber of Commerce  tourist booth.  "That's where most of the  traffic comes from," he stated.  Another project in the works  is the lengthening of the airport  runway to 4000 feet in order to  accomodate small transport  planes. One of the immediate  users would be the aquaculture  industry.  "Fresh fish could be flown  out to places like San  Francisco," explained Koch.  Already a waiting room has  been purchased for the airport  and there are three scheduled  flights a day to Vancouver by  Aquila and Tyee is operating a  charter flight.  "Could the canal go ahead  without the gravel?" asked the  Coast News.  "No, I don't believe so," said  IJ.fr      J-P^P��n  Koch. He went on the explain  that part of the plan depended  on the Indian Band giving up  the land it would be built on.  "Otherwise, if it went through  the municipality, it would involve expropriation."  "What about the loading  facilities that the Indian Band is  planning on putting into Trail  Bay," asked the Coast News.  "We'll just have to live with  it and make the best of it," said  Koch and he indicated he would  be in favour of utilizing it as a  marina breakwater.  Tom Paul, Chief of the  Sechelt Indian Band was also at  the Vancouver meeting and he  was asked by the Coast News if  he had any comments. He  stated that the Band was  satisfied with the outcome of  the meeting and clarified one  point that indicates a canal for  Sechelt may still be possible.  "They saw it as two separate  .questions," said Chief Paul.  "One was the gravel extraction,  and the other was the canal."  According to Paul, the provincial representatives, which included David Pools, assistant to  the premier, will recommend to  cabinet that the gravel project  go ahead and the canal proposal  be studied.  Polar Bear Swim  On New Year's Day an exciting event will once again  take place at Davis Bay Beach. The Fifth Annual Polar  Bear Swim.  This year the Sechelt and District Chamber of Commerce has taken over the responsibility for the swim, and  we are looking for ideas and volunteers to make things run  smoothly. We need volunteers to take registrations, help  with crowd control, look after the brave swimmers and  generally assist with the event.  The Polar Bear Swim, over the years, has become a great  success. Last year there were 31 swimmers with a crowd of  spectators of well over 200.  The success of the Polar Bear Swim can only continue  with the help of volunteers. If you are able to help in any  way, please contact Gail or Shirley at 885-3100.  Board appoints  The new Secretary-Treasurer of School District 46 will be  Mr. Tim Anderson, who is currently Secretary-Treasurer of  School District 56 (Nechako). Anderson will commence his  duties as Associate Secretary-Treasurer in mid-January,  becoming Secretary-Treasurer on April 1, following the  retirement of the present Secretary-Treasurer Roy Mills on  March 31.

O-C^-a  uX Coast News, December 14,1987  good news  The importance of the pulp mill at Port Mellon to the  economic life of the Sunshine Coast is difficult to exaggerate.  The Canfor operation is by far the largest payroll on the  Coast and it is no exaggeration to say that when Canfor  sneezes the entire business community catches cold.  Automation and the modern business world being what  they are, the addition of a newsprint facility to augment  the pulp production will not add to the workforce in the  long run but it does assure that we will not suffer the fate  of so many one-industry areas who lose their industry.  That is profoundly good economic news.  The assurance is welcome that the expenditure of close  to $1 billion in the next few years will also ease the minds  of those for whom matters environmental are as important  as matters economic.  All in all, last week's announcement is good news for all  of us who live here, those in business and those who have  comfortably retired.  We wish Canadian Forest Products Ltd. all success in  this important new venture.  Mayor's vision  There never has been any questioning the fact that  Mayor Bud Koch of Sechelt is a man of restless energy and  considerable vision.  It is exciting when the mayor lets us in on his vision for  Sechelt, as he does in his interview with the Coast News  this week.  Mayor Koch may disturb the more timid amongst us for  whom any change is seen as a threat, but he assuredly is a  refreshing change from the visionless time servers who frequently warm the seats of local government.  One thing missing from the mayor's adventurous litany,  however, is any mention of Block 7 which was the centrepiece of his plans not too long ago. No doubt the mayor  will enlighten us before long as to how this expensive piece  fits into the jigsaw puzzle of his plans.  Refreshing  It is refreshing, is it not, to read of a public hearing conducted without bitterness or vituperation.  We are indebted to the people of Keats Island this week  for reminding the rest of us that such a manner of community conduct is not entirely obsolete.  .from tb* filet of the COAST NEWS  ���*'Li'��y*W"sw '.'j.'igC  5 YEARS AGO  Brookman Park is in serious jeopardy.

I   can   never   think   of  Christmas up the coast without  turning in my mind to the year  1937. The previous year I had  acquired a 41 foot cabin cruiser,  the Five B.R. and began travelling all up and down the coast  selling and repairing radios. For  six years I never slept ashore.  Living   full   time   aboard   a  ;   floating workshop was an ,ex-  , , cellent   proposition : from   the  '   standpoint of my business, but j  it was lonely. Meanwhile I had (  been seeing a Savary Island girl  named Glenys Glynes, and marriage began to seem a rather ob-'  vious move. My family didn't  object (she was English) so it;  was more or less expected, but  when we did decide, it was practically   overnight,   the   week  before Christmas.  I cleaned up the last of the  pre-Christmas service calls in  Pender Harbour and then headed for Vancouver and tied up in  my usual spot alongside the  Pacific Coyle Navigation floats  at the foot of Cardero Street.  Then there was lots to do. Up to  Radio Sales Service to replenish  my stock of tubes, batteries,  and spare parts, and to pick up  the three new radios I had promised for pre-Christmas  delivery.  And then, of course, the  courthouse! Glenys had reminded me that they required  three days notice, in the clear,  for a marriage license. It could  just be squeezed in.  So the great day came, and it  was also the deadline for departure for upcoast points. It was  touch and go. I was up town  picking up the last few items to  go aboard with only minutes to  spare. I was to meet the others  on the courthouse steps. I got  there just as we were asked into  the registrar's office. All Glenys  said was "What happened to  you?" We hadn't been married  long enough for her to be more  pointed, but in later years I  often heard her remark, "He  was even late for his own wedding!" Anyway we made our  way down to the Five B.R., said  our goodbyes, and were on our  way through First Narrows  headed north.  December 24 we arrived at  Heriot Bay where I installed a  new  Stromberg-Carlson  radio  for Francis Dickie, the writer.  By this time he had despaired of  .getting   the   new   set* befttfe  m Christmas. Then on to three  more calls, including a new set  for S.K. Marshall, the Greek  scholar,   who   had   a   large  English-style  house in  Evans  Bay.   Our   last  pre-Christmas  commitment fulfilled, at 17:30  we left Evans Bay bound for  Refuge Cove where we had arranged to spend Christmas with  our  storekeeper  friends  Jack  and Rose Tindall, who were  also just then embarking on  married life.  It was snowing  with a biting northwest wind,  and pitch dark, of course.  One hour later we were  heading into what the locals  refer to as a 'Bute wind'. It is an  Arctic-air outflow that comes  straight down Bute Inlet, and  this one was a dilly. We found  ourselves heading into dirty  four-foot swells, with the spray  starting to freeze on the handrails and rigging. Visibility was  almost nil, and we were making  very little headway. We  shouldn't have been out there at  all, but I wanted to keep our appointment for Christmas dinner  with Jack and Rose.  We were just abeam Bullock  Bluff, the northern tip of Cortes  Island, and nearly to the point  where we could put the wheel  over and head down Lewis  Channel with the wind astern,  when,   without   warning,   the  engine stopped dead. We were  just about half a mile from  shore. The vessel immediately  fell off wind and lay broadside,  rolling madly. I raised the hatch  and jumped down into the  engine room to try and find the  trouble. Everything checked  okay so I grabbed the starting  crank and spun it over, but  nothing! I checked all the obvious things, gas, spark,  distributor wires, but everything  appeared in order. I spun the  crank again, again nothing!  I climbed out and sized up the  situation. It wasn't good. We  were making leeway while we  rolled and already had used up  half the distance to the rocks of  Bullock Bluff. The wind, was  screaming, and we were rolling  viciously. It was hard to hold  on.   Given   another'   hundred  yards we would have made it  clear of the bluff, but the tide  was ebbing, and the current was  carrying us south, so there was  no question we would pile up on  the bluff in a matter of minutes.  I did the only thing left to do.  I scrambled out the wheelhouse  door and onto the icy foredeck  and lowered the anchor. The  term 'lowered' hardly describes  it. I just kicked off the dog and  released the brake and let the  windlass scream out to the bitter  end. It carried 175 feet of wire  cable and chain, and an 85  pound navy anchor. I could only hope that the anchor might  take hold before we hit the  beach, but the water is deep off  the point and it would be touch  and go. But I had done all I  could so I slithered back into  the wheelhouse, and down into  the engine room, and started  desperately to crank again. All  this time poor Glenys was just  hanging on like grim death and  saying nothing.  What an introduction to boating, and married life!  I think it was at this point  that I decided to pray. I seemed  to recall that that is what other  people have been known to do  under similar circumstances.  But I was not a very good hand  at this sort of thing. I wracked  my mind but I couldn't think of  the words, any words. Then I  wondered just how important  the words actually were, so long  as the intentions were there. I  was more than willing to give it  a try, words or no words. Then  silent words surfaced in a rush:  'Break, break, break, on thy  cold grey stones, Oh sea, I  would that my tongue could utter the thoughts that arise in  me.' Not out of the prayer book  it's true, but I was in no position to doubt.  At that moment, I felt the  vessel suddenly swing around  into wind, and the rolling eased.  The anchor had caught, and only just in time. I rushed out to  the'stern with a flashlight to  have a look,  and  I'll  never  forget the scene that greeted me.  Our stern was within ten feet of  the steep rock cliff. I could have  reached it with a boathook. It  had large icicles hanging down  from where the spray had been  freezing. Our stern was heaving  up and down five or six feet,  and as the breakers hit the rocks  the spray came right back into  our cockpit. I rushed back to  the engine room and continued  my frantic search for the problem, but still no clues. After a  while I began to worry about  the situation at the stern, so I  ran back and had another look.  We seemed to be closer, too  damned close and then I realized that the tide was falling ancK  the   anchor   cable   would   be*  slackening and we would be getting   continually   closer.   And  then suppose the anchor was to  slip just a notch? That's all it  would take.  I rushed up to the foredeckj  and very, very gently took up a  few feet of cable on the  windlass, always risking the  possibility that in doing so I  might dislodge the anchor. It  was touch and go, but it work-  Please turn to page 6  From another perspective  Summit ends 'evil empire' myth  by Peter Prongos  SUBSCRIPTION RATES  Canada: 1 year $35; 6 months $20; Foreign; 1 year $40  J  The ironies of the Soviet-U.S.  summit meeting are legion, but  the most interesting of all is the  role of President Reagan. Here  we see the most simple-minded,  knee-jerk, anti-Soviet leader  ever, signing the most significant nuclear arms (INF) treaty  in history with a country  Reagan calls the 'Evil Empire'.  This approach is such a turn  around that long-time Reagan  supporters are now accusing  him of being 'a useful idiot for  Kremlin propaganda!'  Reagan's change of heart is  due to a number of fabtors,  such as the mess caused by his  economic policy of pandering to  the rich, and by the revelations  of the Iran-Contra scandal. The  peace movement also deserves  credit for educating people  about the nuclear threat and  creating a political climate in  which Reagan has had to move  towards disarmament if he is to  have any chance to regain some  of his lost popularity.  Mikhail Gorbachev, however, probably deserves more  credit than any other single individual.  Perhaps the most important  outcome of this breakthrough  has been the change in attitude  among people in the west to the  Soviet Union. (Gorbachev,  again deserves much credit). It  is becoming obvious, (even to  Americans) that the myth of the  Soviet Union as a vast slave-  camp bent on conquering the  world is nonsense. Indeed, we in  the west have been just as misled about the USSR as Soviet  citizens have been about us.  Fortunately the winds of  'glasnost' are blowing in both  directions.  But western governments and  their apologists are still conducting a disinformation campaign  against their own citizens about  the 'Soviet threat'. One particularly relevent example is the  lie that NATO forces in Europe  will be so weak without the Pershing and Cruise missiles that  the Soviets might be tempted to  start a war. This lie ignores  critical facts such as: 1. Tens of  thousands of Soviet troops are  on the Chinese border, hence no  threat to Europe. 2. The Warsaw Pact troops from countries  like East Germany and Poland  can hardly be considered  reliable. 3. Many Soviet troops  are only trained for such duties  as road construction and guarding borders. 4. The west has a  decided technological superiority. 5. NATO still has thousands  of nuclear weapons in Europe.  A rough overall conventional  balance exists then, while  military strategists hold that a  3-1 advantage is usually needed  by an attacking force to ensure;  victory. !  Significantly, no one has ever,  presented a rational scenario to;  explain why the Soviets would;  want to start a war in Europe in;  the first place. As George Ken-;  nan, former US ambassador to;  Moscow wrote: "I have never!  seen the evidence that the Soviet!  leaders seriously considered at-!  tacking western Europe at any,  time in these postwar years",   ;  The demise of the 'Evil Em-.'  pire' myth will make it morel  difficult for the US to justify:  such cold war policies as sup-;  port for the contra terrorists at-;  tacking Nicaragua. And in;  Canada, we have to wonder;  how long Mulroney will be,  allowed to put forward mis-,  leading arguments to justify;  continued testing of the Cruise ���  missile over our country. {   .  Coast News, December 14,1987  3.  Christmas afloat  Editor:  Some 50 miles off the Azores  Islands, Christmas 1944 broke  clear as a bell, the sun warm and  the sea as calm as a summer day  on Lost Lagoon.  From the bridge of HMCS  Royalmount, Lieutenant Commander Davis surveyed his position from the forward sweep of  the convoy of some 60 merchant ships spread in line and  column over a ten mile checkerboard of mirror-like ocean.  Overhead, US warplanes  swept over the convoy from  their base in the Azores, providing additional protective  cover as our entire convoy having reached its most southerly  position of the Atlantic crossing, altered course to the northwest heading for rendezvous  at the Grand Banks off Newfoundland.  * prior  In the early afternoon with  -9fF-.~. permission, HMCS  '* Royalmount moved into the  j* convoy front and centre and  came abreast of the commodore's ship SS Cavonia for  the exchange of traditional  Christmas greetings.  Cavonia's passenger list was  something else - about 200 war  brides and Royalmount was going to put on a show. Our  ..bearded captain had been look-  ting forward to this day since we  tleft our Londonderry base early  tin December.  �� Cruising abreast of Cavonia,  'Royalmount fired a line to the  jship and our Christmas tree was  ���passed. Not to1 be upstaged,  tCavonia's captain returned a  .basket of yuletide cheer. By this  time her decks were lined at the  rails with war brides in anticipation.  Aft on Royalmount's  12-pounder gundeck, off-watch  crew members performed with  guitars and accordions. Three  clowning seamen dressed in  Carmen Miranda fashion and  did song and dance routines  much to the delight of our near  and yet-so-far audience.  Needless to say, more than visions of sugar plums danced in  our heads.  True to navy tradition, our  bearded captain paraded the  gun deck wearing the youngest  seaman's uniform, while  alongside strutted our youngest  seaman of 19 years wearing the  captain's uniform to close out  our show.  Some days later at rendezvous on the Grand Banks, we  relinquished our convoy charges  to the local escort group for  delivery to Halifax, Boston, and  New York while our escort  group of six ships made haste  for St. John's and a few days  ringing in the new year, for this  had been our lengthiest crossing  of the Atlantic - from dockside  Londonderry to dockside Newfoundland, 28 days.  Weeks later on returning to  the English Channel, the Irish  Sea, and eventually our base in  Londonderry, we of HMCS  Royalmount learned of our  yuletide escapades from the  New York newspapers, as the  war brides were interviewed by  the press before scattering  themselves to new-found  relatives throughout North  America, telling of their  Christmas at sea.  Richard F. Kennett  Speak for Peace  ��� Editor:  At Christmas our thoughts  turn to the story of a star shin-  r ing in the heavens, proclaiming  ^that'a child of peace and hope  'had been born. The kings which  "followed the star came to a  ' stable where a child laid in his  'mother's arms. The child was  : poor and needing our love.  ; This December we have a  'world of children crying for  -food, education, health and a  :future. Finally, we have a  : flicker of hope that the nuclear  :arms which waste the world's  ���wealth, time, talents and  ���resources   will   start   to   be  dismantled. Reagan and Gor-  'bachev have signed an historic  'document to reduce the num-  ; bers of medium range missiles  in Europe.  -    For   the   sake   of   your  children's future, send a card  praising this positive action to  the White House. Encourage  the two leaders to continue the  urgent work towards total  nuclear disarmament and to increase funding to meet the basic  physical, social incl 'emotfoft'al  heeds of children, especially in  the Third World.  Finally, we must "speak out  against   the   development   of  weapons in space. Peace will  not be found by placing a battlefield in the stars. Let us leave  the stars in the sky to move in  silence and hope.  President Reagan and  Mr. Gorbachev  (White House)  1600 Pennsylvania Ave. N.W.  Washington, D.C. 20500  U.S.A.

"I think it's a mistake. An error in judgement," he said of  Town Planner Rob Buchan's  recommendation to the Town  to refuse the zoning application.  Buchan reported to the com  mittee last Tuesday, "While  there is little doubt that the site  is eminently suitable for the suggested 'retirement village' there  is, in my opinion, cause for concern with this application. To  the best of my knowledge, no  actual developer is waiting in  the wings and it is apparent that  this request for re-zoning is  simply to facilitate sale of the  property."  GVFD election  The Gibsons Volunteer Fire  Department is pleased to announce the results of this year's  election of officers held on  Monday, December 7.  Chief, Randy Rodrique;  Deputy Chief, Stan Stubbs;  Assistant Chief, Mel  Buckmaster; Captain, Training,  Wally Dempster; Captains,  Cliff Mahlman and Wayne  Taylor; Lieutenants, Larry Ennis, Tim Koftinoff, Mike  Rendleman, Gordie Ross and  Graham Webb.  The GVFD's annual  Christmas draw was held on  Monday, December 12. RCMP  Constable Russ Pederson made  the draw. The winners were:  Liza Zroback, $600; Marty  Payne, $400; Blain Hagedorn,  $300; and Lonnie Allen, $200.

Coastal  Christmas  Continued from page 2  ed. We now had a few more feet  of clearance so I returned to the  engine room once again. This  time I must have touched the  right thing, because I gave the  crank one pull and the engine  started! To this day I don't  know what the trouble was, and  it never happened again.  Anyway we were not quite  home free yet.  I jumped out of the well and  gently eased the clutch ahead,  gradually increasing power till  the ship started to move slowly  forward against the gale force  wind and nasty seas. I just kept  it coming slowly forward till it  lifted the anchor off the bottom. I was taking no chances,  but kept creeping ahead, knowing that if I tried to increase  speed there was the danger of  the anchor cable being drawn  into the propeller, particularly  with the vessel pitching like it  was. I think it may have been  half an hour before I was dead  sure that I was well clear of the  bluff with the whole of Lewis  Channel clear and astern of us.  Then, and then only, I turned  the wheel over to Glenys to keep  the ship's head into the wind  while I got out on deck and winched in the anchor. An hour  later we were singing carols, and  toasting the season in the Tin-  dall's snug living room at  Refuge Cove.  I    don't    remember    a  Christmas I appreciated more.

GIBSONS LANDING MERCHANTS W^M^^KIKBMW&!M  Coast News, December 14,1987  Former loc  prominence  ; by. George Cooper, 886-8520  **-; : ���-   I Two teachers who were at  One time on the staff of Gibsons  Elementary School have been  prominent in news out of Vancouver this past year; news, that  is, of teacher reaction to Bill 20.  t Alan Crawford and  Maureen, who was then Crawford but returned to her former  ^urname of MacDonald in 1975  ih National Women's Year,  taught here in 1969-71, their  first school..  j Alan was in the brand new  Sapen area', and Maureen in a  Grade 5-6 class as well as being  director of the school glee cub.  'When they left Gibsons to  return to Vancouver, "We did  rtiiss-the city," they soon found  positions in the school system  there. Alan has taught in several  sthobls, one an alternate secondary, and Maureen, following a  f;urther year of study, as an  elementary librarian. Both are  graduates of UBC.  \ Both Alan and Maureen have  devoted themselves to Teacher  Association business, a good  deal of It as full time executives.  Maureen has served two terms  as a volunteer member of the  B.C.   Teachers   Federation  (BCTF), and she has been  chairperson of the BCTF Status  of Women committee. She has  also served as a member of the  Board of Directors of the Canadian Teachers Association.  Maureen is at present in her  third year as president of the  Vancouver Elementary School  Teachers Association (VESTA),  a full time position.  Alan is in his second year as  vice-president of the BCTF, and  he, too, has been president of  VESTA from 1978-81, and a  volunteer BCTF executive  member as well. Both of their  present positions are particularly demanding in this year of  teacher re-organization under  Bill 20.  Now that the initial yammering of teachers has given way to  the hard work of organizing  themselves under the new  regulations, the teachers are  determined at the same time to  preserve their provincial  . association, the BCTF, which  Bill 20 gives no legal status to.  ���To organize district by school  district as local unions or as  local associations is the requirement of Bill 20.  Since the new law gives  unions the right to bargain with  employers, but gives few rights  to associations, teachers in vast  numbers throughout the province are supporting the campaign to organize as unions.  And the teachers of every  district are now bustling  through the preparatory stages  that lead to the vote this coming  January, conducted by the Industrial Relations Council,  which will determine whether a  local is to be a certified union.  A simple majority in that  vote will determine that the  union is the sole bargaining  agent in any particular school  district. It is noteworthy that  other unions have left the  teachers alone to do their own  organizing.  In the present initial 'signing-  up' process over 70 districts out  of the 75 in the province have  shown their intention to  unionize. Not one district so far  has indicated that it wishes to be  an association.  While at the business of  signing-up, teachers will be also  indicating that they wish to support financially the provincial  body, their B.C. Teachers  Federation.  Although, as has been noted,  ^rMamSkm  tefe  m  Salvation Armj Major Leo Porter and Alderman Lilian Kunstler officially opened the Salvation Army  Thrift Store at Seaview Place in Gibsons on Saturday. ���Ken Collins photo  Port Mellon  future plans  Continued from page 1  The pollution factor which  has plagued the mill for close to  10 years will be brought to acceptable levels by the new  technology and emissions from  chemical recovery units, the  odour-causing element of the  mill, will be brought down with  70 percent of current odour  causing agents being replaced  by clean oxygen.  Long speculated, "That with  the influx of traffic to take place  I'm going to talk to Steven  Rogers and try to get a bypass  in." He also said this may be  the fuel necessary to get a late-  night ferry sailing to the Sunshine Coast.

OPEN DAILY 6 am - Midnite  the BCTF is given no status at  all in Bill 20, teachers will show  by this support that their  70-year old provincial association is their own form of  solidarity. And their campaign  this fall has aggressively set out  to accomplish this aim.  But organizing into unions is  only a preliminary to next spring's negotiations with the  school boards. Where contracts  heretofore have been governed  in many ways by government  regulation, now every detail is  on the bargaining table.  Academic freedom, for example, which means the choosing  and applying of curriculum,  and membership in committees  to decide policy, and rules of  work, and sick leave, as well as  salaries.  "For decades teachers have  wanted to bargain all conditions  of employment," said Maureen  MacDonald, "and that is one  good thing that Bill 20 has done  for us."  This Bill 20, as you can see,  puts a tremendous responsibility  on our school boards, too. Are  they going to meet this  challenge to see that our public  is well served by any contract  that is negotiated?  The public of the Sunshine  Coast would serve itself well if it  concerned itself more directly in  what goes on in the education  system.

Clark  Hamilton, representing the  Aquaculture Association, told a  meeting of the Foreshore Advisory Task Force last week that  there are plans in the works to  begin collecting the morts in  January.  According to Hamilton, the  project is being initiated by  former association president,  Syd Heal, who will arrange for  the morts to be hauled to a pet  food plant in the Lower  Mainland.  His comments were made in  response to an information item  presented by Chairman Gordon  Wilson, who told the members  that he was bringing a motion to  8*-*^^  t i  5 3  THIS CHRISTMAS  HELP & DONATIONS NEEDED  y$fr  886-2488 or Box 598  Proceeds aid Food Bank  Tues-Sat 10-4  THRIFTY'S  above Ken's Lucky Dollar ����&>>  wi Beat WUlm  (at a Happy and  ?*Mpe*0ti6 Mctu yea*  toaffi mi* ctteicb  and (tiaub  Your resident Investors Planning Team  Investors  Group  PROFIT FROM OUR EXPERIENCE  J.N.W.

Wilson's idea was to request  tenders for the collection of  domestic garbage and sewage as  well as morts from other sites.  There has been increasing concern about the dumping of dead  fish at local dumps and human  sewage in the Sechelt Inlet.  White  Tower  applauded  by Joel Johnstone  Second and third reading was  given to Municipal Property  Lease Bylaw 583 on December  1, by Gibsons Council. In effect, the lease agreement between the town and the White  Tower Medieval Society  (WTMS) will allow the society  to close or limit access to the  park as long as the!*, town is  notified in advance.  Last month, the society  received a pat on the back from  Planner Rob Buchan for a job  well-done although the job isn't  complete yet.  For the last two years WTMS  members have been clearing 10  acres of land adjacent to the  swimming pool to create a  public park and an area where  they can hold archery events  and stage some of the  historically-based antics their  society was formed to enjoy.  "What is developing  there,"Buchan said, "is a very  pretty, attractive municipal  park. The society is to be commended."  The clearing is more evident  now that a bulldozer hired by  the society has piled much of  the slash accumulated from the  handslashing of the volunteer  force. They also propose to construct two dry ponds which  would attract much of the runoff flowing into the park area  during heavy rains thereby easing some strain on drainage  facilities in Lower Gibsons.  The town and the society will  enter into the lease agreement  on terms the society will pay one  dollar a year for 10 years for use  of the park for their events.  Register for  Supplynet  After a one month delay, the  Gibsons and District Chamber  of Commerce is pleased to announce that the SupplyNet  registration forms have arrived. Businesses operating within  Gibsons and District are invited  to take advantage of this new  program, sponsored by the  Ministry of Economic  Development and local  Chambers of Commerce.  SupplyNet is a computerized  purchasing information system  available to buyers in every  public agency in British Columbia. By listing your company (products or services) the  SupplyNet can provide market  exposure to as many as 500  public agencies. The Federal  Government will also use this  information to assist its operations in sourcing from B.C.  companies.  At the inaugural meeting in  Gibsons last Monday, Mayor  Diane Strom announced a new  approach to committee appointments. Planning, Public Works,  and Finance will be handled by  a committee of the whole,  chaired by Deputy Mayor  Alderman Norm Peterson.  Peterson will also be Strom's  alternate on the Sunshine Coast  Regional District board and will  attend all meetings with her.  Lilian Kunstler will represent  Gibsons on the Coast Garibaldi  Union Board of Health and the  Provincial Emergency Program.  Gerry Dixon, who has just  been re-elected for a three year  term as alderman, will sit on the  West Howe Sound Fire Commission, the Library Commission, and the Aquatic Commission.  Newly elected Alderman  John Reynolds will be handling  Gibsons affairs on the West  Howe Sound Recreation Commission and the Economic  Development Commission.

There were 35 who attended  and the Legion Ladies' Auxiliary headed by Irene Crabb,  put on a most delicious turkey  dinner with all the trimmings.  The lights were dimmed and  with the Christmas tree, candles  on the table, a lovely centrepiece  and Christmas crackers, it looked very festive.  President Pat Mitchell mentioned how pleased we all were  that Irene and Ted Temple were  able to join us, and how sad we  were that they were moving  away. They will be very much  missed.  It was also announced that  Mary Ledingham has agreed to  be our new president for the  coming year; Bernice Corns our  new secretary; Ede McNaugh-  ton to be in charge of the coffee  urn, and Flo Burroughs to  assist. John Logan has agreed  to carry on as treasurer and we  are all very grateful to all of  them for agreeing to carry on  the tasks for the coming year.  Santa's helper was unable to  obtain his beautiful red suit but  Santa, himself, decided to abandon his usual garb and came  forward in a smart business suit  and greeted all the ladies with  their gifts. Our thanks to Frank  McWhinnie who did a great job  as our Santa. Everyone was called up in turn to receive their  gifts.  This was followed by some  beautiful singing by the Community Choir, headed by Mrs.  Fowler and led by Dan Chaplin.  The ladies of the choir were enjoyed so very much. We had  our usual fun game, with lots of  mixups and laughs.  Sorely missed were Art Bishop and Beverly Blight. Beverly has not been at all well and  we wish her all the best and  hope for a speedy recovery.  For those who could not  come, you missed a great evening and we hope you will be able  to be there next year.  The compliments of the season to everybody and all the  best for the coming year.

The award from the  B.C. Lottery Fund will assist  with improvements to Cliff  Gilker Park in Roberts Creek.  "The parks in the area are  constantly overbooked," said  Veitch, minister responsible for  the Fund. "This facility when  complete will alleviate the problem and will be the only park  on the coast with lighting."  Mackenzie   MLA   Harold  Long, joined Veitch in the announcement. "Cliff Gilker  Park is one of the most picturesque along the Sunshine Coast.  The local citizens are proud that  some episodes of the television  show, The Beachcombers, are  shot here. I am pleased that the  Lottery Fund is supporting such  community development projects that will benefit a great  number of people."  The planned improvements  include the construction of a  concession stand and storage  building, a track, and sound  and lighting equipment.  While Christmas is a time of  joy and sharing, we are also  aware that for some, Christmas  is a time of want and the Salvation Army along with other  community organizations works  diligently through the season to  ease that want.  The Salvation Army is asking  those who would like to attend a  Christmas party this year, that  their names be in no later than  December 18. There is room for  125 children and 75 adults.  Registration must be made at  the Salvation Army Thrift  Store, Seaview Place, Gibsons,  between 12 and 4 pm, Monday  December 14 until Thursday,  December 17.  At Christmas the Salvation  Army in this community is pro-1  viding a Christmas party. They  also supply sunshine bags,  which are bags of treats  delivered to those in nursing  homes and hospitals. A carol  service is also being done at  Kiwanis Village.  At this time they would Ju'ke  to thank everyone for their  donations and pray that you  have a very Merry Christmas  and Happy New Year.

It  was on Wednesday, December 9  when Ruby Warne died.  Ruby was 84 years of age and  had lived on Redrooffs for the  past 30 years, 23 of which were  spent happily with Ed Edmunds. She leaves one son and  three grandchildren in Kelowna  and a sister in Nanaimo.  For many years Ruby was an  active member of the Halfmoon  Bay Hospital Auxiliary and she  gave much of her time and  energy to the Welcome Beach  Community Association. We all  knew her as a good kind lady  and we will miss her. Our sympathies to Ed and to all the  family.  At Ruby's own request there  will be no service.  The other lovely lady who left  us is Carrie Surtees who  together with husband Ted  came to Halfmoon Bay in 1954  when Carrie took over as  teacher at Halfmoon Bay  school. She remained in this  position for some 14 years. At  that time the school was fairly  primitive as there was no running water or electricity, but Carrie coped beautifully with the  situation.  She was made a Life Member  of Branch 140 Canadian Legion  as well as Past Noble Grand  Lady of Rebecca Lodge 82 and  a member of the OES. Many  es pass  friends gathered to pay their last  respects to Carrie at a funeral  service at St. Hilda's Church on  Saturday, December 12.  Our thoughts are with Ted  and family at this sad time.  AUXILIARY EXECUTIVE  The new Executive of the  Halfmoon Bay Hospital Auxiliary are as follows: Jean  Mercer, President; Marjorie  Ross, Vice-President; and  Treasurer, Marg Engstrom. The  luncheon at which these ladies  will be officially installed is today, December 14 at the Pebbles.  GRANDPARENTS  Bill and Mary Ewan of  Eureka have again become proud grandparents.

MARY'S BRANCH  This week is your last chance  to put your name in the 'in lieu  of sending Christmas cards'.  Leave your donation and name  at Bobbie's Shoes or contact  Doris Gower.  The Sechelt Branch to St.  Mary's Hospital held a very successful bazaar on December 5.  The annual meeting of the  Sechelt branch was held over a  really fine buffet lunch at Pebbles on Monday, December 7.  In-service hours for volunteers was 2,990, added to the  other working hours, i.e. crafts,  thrift shop, etc. A grand total of  18,074 hours were achieved.  Through their efforts this year  this branch will turn over $6,500  to the auxiliary to St. Mary's  Hospital. The money raisers for  this year were business lunch,  bridge, fashion show and  bazaar.  Remembrance of valued  members who passed away this  year was observed. These included Ada Dawe, Rae Fitzgerald, Audrey Jost and Mort  Reid.  A presentation was made to  Mrs. Muriel Hutchison, of an  auxiliary spoon, as well as a  special gift from members who  had worked with Muriel. Muriel  has been a fantastic volunteer,  having served as volunteer  director, president, chairing at  one time or another every  money raiser held by the  branch, and bringing in in-  umberable new members.  Muriel and Adam are moving  away from the Sunshine Coast  to Summerland. They will be  missed but not forgotten.  Nominating chairman Muriel  Hutchinson's slate of officers  were elected, and Ted Wright,  administrator for St. Mary's  Hospital performed the candle-  lighting ceremony that saw  them installed. Instead of Peggy  Gallos being presented with a  past president pin, she asked  that she be pinned with her  mother's pin. She had been the  first president of Surrey  Hospital Auxiliary.  Hospital decorating for ECU  will take place on Thursday,  December 17 at 1:15 and for the  rest of the hospital at 9:30 am.  Contact volunteer director  Erika Wright.  SCBPWC  Sunshine Coast Business and  Professional   Women's   Club  joined with the Gibsons B & P  club for a Christmas party at  the Sechelt Rod and Gun Club  Tuesday, December 8. It was a  time of fun exchanging and re-  exchanging of gifts. The dinner  was a vast variety of finger  foods of excellent quality all  provided by the members with  the Gibsons club bringing a  delectable array of desserts, all  calorie free, of course.  A special guest was a member  of the Mazatlan Business and  Professional Women's Club in  Mexico. She was Vicky Nuno,  who couldn't speak English, but  was the guest of Ailia McNutt  who is fluent in both languages.  Vicky communicated well  without words and was a lively  addition to the party.

Last Tuesday, Gibsons Planning Committee voted to allow  required zoning changes to the  lot, but final approval will have  to wait until Town Planner Rob  Buchan and the Ministry of  Transportation and Highways  have finished putting it through .  its paces. ' _ l'j  Part of the proposal wbuTd"  have allowed two-way access  onto Highway 101 from a current one-way access. Buchan  told the committee a two-way  access in that location would be  enough to 'render this stretch of  Highway 101 the most accident-  prone on the "Sunshine Coast,  and this proposed addition of  yet another access iseonsidered  neither desirable nor necessary'.  Committee members, agreed  and will include restriction of  the access to one way in their  by-law amendment. Also, the  aspect of the project concerning  access will have to go through a  screening process by the  Ministry of Transportation and  Highways following first and  second readings of the by-law  because their requirements  .governing access to and from  the highway differ from those  of the Town.  General Equities of Canada  Ltd., on behalf of plaza owners,  North West Life Assurance of  Canada Ltd., has also proposed  to provide 47 guest rooms,  related service rooms, a reception office, manager's suite and  three general purpose rooms as  part of the project. An additional building would also include a swimming pool, Jacuzzi,  whirlpool, saunas and related  change and washrooms with the  pub and restaurant inclusive;  PENTAX  COMPACT 35mm  CAMERAS  PINO SE ��� Compact with care-free  focus, exposure and flash  SHARPSHOOTER II  The automatic approach to trouble free photography  ZOOM 70 " World's first fully automatic 35mm camera  with power zoom lenses.

Bill was president  of Branch 69 for two years, and  of course, Joyce was actively a  participant in Branch affairs  along with him. He was instrumental in the forming of  our 69ers singing group and was  an active participant in the  group until recently. He served  faithfully on our building committee for some years, giving  freely of his advice and time.  His last contribution to our  Branch was as a 'caller' for our  bingo sessions. Our sympathy is  extended at this time to Joyce  and family.  ACTIVITY SCHEDULE  With the holiday season  creeping up on us, the 'shutdown' and 'start-up' schedule  for our Branch activities are as  follows:  Cribbage and Whist will be  stopping on December 15 and  starting up on January 5; Aggravation, December 8, January  12; Carpet Bowling, December  14, January 4; Five-Pin Bowling, December 18, January 7;  Exercises, December 14,  January 4; Crafts, December 3,  January 7; Painting, December  9, January 6; Bridge, December  12, January 9; Square Dancing,  December 18, January 7; and  Social Bingo, November 26,  January 14.  With regard to the proceeding  activities, all members should  bear in mind that these gather-  asses  ings have been programmed for  the benefit and enjoyment of  every one of our members. If  you haven't carpet bowled,  played aggravation or worked  on crafts, don't let it hold you  back from attending. Your participation will serve to further  the main purpose of our Branch  ,and to provide the fellowship  that lonely people particularly  REMINISCING  Remember the days when  Dad said, "Be in by 10!" and  you thought to yourself,  "Bah!" or possibly maybe  something considerably  stronger. Then take a wee look  at the following from the.  December issue of the Elder  Statesman which is credited to  the 'Senior Scene' of Tacoma,  Washington.  FATHER  4 years: My Dad can do  anything.  7 years: My Dad knows a lot,  a whole lot.  8 years: My pad doesn 't quite  know everything.  12 years: Oh well, naturally  Father doesn't know everything.  14 years: Father? Hopelessly  old-fashioned.  21 years: Oh, that man is out-  of-date. What did you  expect?  25 years: He knows a little bit  about it, but not much.  30 years: Must find out what  Dad thinks about this.  35 years: A little patience.  Let's get Dad's meaning  first.  50 years: What would Dad  have thought about it?  60 years: My Dad knew  literally everything.  65 years: I wish I could talk  it over with Dad once more.

New Trustees Shawn Cardinall, Lynn Chapman, Carol  Adams and Pat Stuart were  sworn in at the December 8  meeting which was held at  Langdale Elementary School.  Principal Jamie Davidson, in  a presentation to the Board,  outlined programs and policies  that are being implemented at  the school. He said that the  most important goal was to  foster a sense of pride and community for the students.  The upcoming Christmas  Concert involves every student  in the school in some capacity  or the other. The very colourful  mural at the entrance to the  school was also done by  students and has helped the  youngsters feel that the school  belongs to them.  Science teacher Rick Gibbel  outlined a comprehensive program that encourages students  to explore areas of personal interest and use their own initiative. ���  For relaxation camp  Keats I. hearing peaceful  by Joel Johnstone  It was quite possibly the most  peaceful public hearing to be  held in recent months. Last  .Saturday, over 30 residents and  property owners on Keats  Island gathered at the Baptist  Camp Clam Shack to hear the  Gambier Island Trust Committee put forward a land-use bylaw change for one of several  large lots owned by Richard  Corkum, who owns approximately 570 of the 1500 acres  making up Keats Island.  Fourteen months of work  towards a collaboration between Corkum and the Barnabas  Family Ministries to create a  non-denominational, family  relaxation and summer camp  facility came to a head over one  word, 'institution'.  Derek Boniface of the  Eastbourne Cottages Association and several other present  voiced their concern that the  word 'institution' could some  day   mean   correction   or  rehabilitation   facilities   under  such a zoning designation.  After some discussion, Barnabas Executive Director Rob  Bentall said, "I don't have any  objections to changing the term  institution."  Committee Vice-Chairman  Steve Wright then proposed adding a definition to the by-law  excluding correctional and  rehabilitational use in the zoning of the lot.  SCRD Area F Director John  Shaske questioned the legality  of such a clause and Island  Trust representatives assured,  him that the amendment would  go to their legal department for  clearance after first, second and  third readings, before being sent  to Victoria for approval.  The Island Trust Committee  was set up to serve island communities in the Straits of  Georgia and to preserve and  protect unique amenities and  environmental conditions in  1986. This committee's task  came easily because of the over  whelming support the Corkums  have from their neighbours and  the community.  Bentall said the Barnabas  family camp project will incorporate a two-storey building of  about 40,000 square feet, with  an initial cost of $2 million. It  would be used in its 'under-one-  roof concept' as a host centre  for conferences, seminars,  recreation and family counselling from the biblical perspective, 'with a focus on family and  young life. Our one goal is to  strengthen the family'.  The ministry directed their  plans towards the Corkum  family farm because there  would be minimal clearing required, beauty and seclusion  were readily available, and it  has a safe waterfront access.  The project itself met with  approval from residents because  the zoning change would keep  the lot from being subdivided  and would disallow any commercial use of the land and the  majority were overwhelmingly  in support of seeing something  favourable happen to the Corkum family.  Richard Corkum, a forester  who could have logged or subdivided his holdings, has held  back any development and  maintained only selective logging of dead and diseased lumber  from his properties. The joint  ownership venture with Barnabas, will help ease some of  the recent property tax strain he  has undergone.  Counsellor Fran Jovick  spoke of the program that encouraged children to develop  life skills such as co-operation,  initiative and problem solving.  Laara Dalen, president of the  PTA at Gibsons Elementary  School, spoke to the School  Board at last Tuesday's meeting  about the unfavourable teacher-  student ratio in the  Kindergarten at the school.  Dalen claimed that several  children were showing stress  symptoms which she attributes  directly to the overcrowding.  There are 50 Kindergarten  children, with the class split into  25 children each in morning and  afternoon sessions.  That number is acceptable to  the Ministry of Education, but,  in practise, claims Dalen, it is  far too many children for one  teacher to handle at the  Kindergarten level and she urged the Board to make some  changes.  The Board directed the  District Superintendent to investigate the situation.  The Sunshine Coast Parents  for French continued to push  for an improved French program in local schools at the  meeting, where a delegation of  parents again spoke to the  Board, urging that all aspects of  the program be implemented as  soon as possible.  In other School Board news,  the Board considered a need for  a policy in the event that a student or employee contracts  AIDS. Dr. Peter Reynolds and  Dr. Walter Burtnick are willing  to meet with the Board and provide medical advice.  A team of Ministry of Education officials spent three days  conducting a mini-accreditation  of Elphinstone school. A written report will be presented to  the Board.  The Secretary-Treasurer  recommended that the playing  field for Halfmoon Bay school  be located partially on School  Board property and partially on  Connor Park property, provided the terrain proves to be  suitable.  Later in the meeting, the  Board expressed concern at the  delayed start of construction of  the Halfmoon Bay school. The  delay has been mainly caused  by the unusually long time it  has taken the Ministry of  Education to approve plans.  "It is crucial," said Chairman Maureen Clayton, "that  we have that school ready by  September 1988."  Trustee Lynn Chapman asked the Board to consider a  policy to discourage war toys.  Members questioned whether  the Board had a right to do such  a thing, but agreed to further  discuss the matter at a later  date.  District Superintendent Art  Holmes reported that the  district was fortunate to have  acquired, at no cost to the  Board, two trainees from the  Capilano College Job Training  program.  Jocelyn Boyce is working at.  the Board office, and Diane  LaCroix is an aide in the Sechelt  French Immersion program.  Local policemen  earn recognition  Veitch postpones  The public meeting with Minister of State Elwood Veitch,  scheduled for December 17, to find out about regionalization  has been postponed until January. A new date will be announced soon.  Lieutenant-Governor and  Mrs. Rogers hosted Police  Honours Night, 1987, at  Government House, Thursday,  November 26, when 24  members of British Columbia's  police community received  awards for outstanding service.  Among recipients were Constable Sach and Auxiliary Constable Atlee, for their actions on  October 17, 1986, in Gibsons,  when they successfully disarmed  an intoxicated person who was  pointing a rifle and threatening  to shoot them.  "The courage, restraint, and  presence of mind exercised by  these members was instrumental  in preventing a tragic ending to  a domestic dispute."  In making the announcement, Attorney General Brian  Smith said the awards are  presented for outstanding acts  of bravery, services while on  assignment, or service to the  community. Recipients are  selected by the B.C. Association  of Chiefs of Police and the B.C.  Police Commission.  The program is sponsored by  the provincial government.

In 1764, the  secretary died, predeceasing his  . master by two years. He left no  offspring. The relics were left to  his nephew, John, also in the  employ of the Stuarts. John  received gifts both from Prince  Charles (who presented him  with the second pair of pistols)  and his brother, David, the Cardinal of York. Eventually John  Edgar returned to the family  home of Keithock, in Forfarshire, taking the relics with him.  They were to remain in Scotland  for almost a century.  The Ribbon of the Garter  came into the possession of the  Edgar family much later than  any of the other items. It was  given originally by Prince  Charles to one of his faithful  followers, John Hay. From  Hay it passed to a fellow exile,  Robert Barclay. Barclay bequeathed it to Katherine Edgar,  a grand-niece of the Secretary  and, through her, in the early  1840's, it found its place with  the other Jacobite relics.  At roughly the same time,  Katherine Edgar's youngest  brother, James, emigrated to  Canada. He bought land near  Sherbrooke, Ontario and named the estate Keithock after the  traditional family holdings in  Scotland.  It was a son of this emigrant  Edgar, James David, who finally arranged to have the artifacts  brought to Canada in the  1860's. James David was destined to make a name of his own in  the new land. He became an  astute politician and was  Speaker of the House for the  Wilfred Laurier government,  from 1896 to 1899.  It is in direct connection with  the career of Sir James David  Edgar that a present-day figure  enters the story. He is Hugh  MacMillan, liason officer for  the Ontario Archives, often  known as the 'History Detective'.  Hugh MacMillan is an ebullient, stocky, gray haired and  bearded man in his early sixties.  Some writer once called him a  cross between Grizzly Adams  and Farley Mowatt. The  description is still apt enough.  MacMillan radiates bonhomie  and an unflagging sense of purpose.  MacMillan spends much of  his time on the road, crisscrossing the United States and  Canada, rooting through dusty  attics and cluttered basements in  search of letters and documents  pertaining to Ontario's history.  He talked the Ontario Archives  into creating the post for him  back in the mid 60's, and has  been tirelessly disinterring  valuable material for them ever  since. MacMillan has been  obsessed with Canadian history  ever since his 20's. At that time,  he researched his own family  tree and discovered that he was  the direct descendent of James  MacMillan who, in 1827, built  the famous North West Trading  Company post at Fort Langley,  in what is now British Columbia.  It was in 1969 that MacMillan  first got wind of the Edgar  family and their fascinating  legacy. In that year, journalist  McKenzie Porter interviewed  the 'History Detective' for his  Toronto Telegram column,  outlined his activities and invited comments or leads. There  were a number of responses, including a particularly intriguing  one from a Mrs. Elizabeth  Trott.  She informed MacMillan that  her family home had been expropriated by the city and was  due to be torn down within a  year. She had to get rid of a lot  of things, including many items  that had been stored there by  her long time friend, James  Edgar. These it^ms, Mrs. Trott,.  stressed, were very old and  possibly of great value. Among  them were a number of Jacobite  paintings, medals and the Bonnie Prince Charlie pistols.  James Edgar, a man of erratic  habits, had disappeared some  months before and she had no  idea where he was. She knew he  had two sons, John and David,  and a daughter, Elizabeth, but  had not been able to locate  them.  Hugh MacMillan listened  somewhat sceptically to Mrs.  Trott's story. "What has any of  this got to do with Ontario  historical papers?" he asked  her. "That's all I'm really interested in."  "James Edgar's grandfather  was Speaker of the House in the  Laurier government," she told  him. "A lot of his papers are  here too."  This sparked MacMillan's interest but he was tied up with  other business and it was two  weeks before he was able to visit  the Trott home. In the interval,  one of the sons had shown up  and taken most of the Jacobite  artifacts. Only a few paintings  were left, and they were in bad  repair. MacMillan took them  back to the Canadian Gallery to  be stored until an Edgar chose  to claim them. He searched for  the parliamentary papers but  could find no trace of them.  Perhaps the son had taken them  too. Disappointed, the 'History  Detective' put the case on hold  and went about his affairs.

For those who prefer contemporary rock music the unconditional first choice for a  great album is the new, self-  titled album by veteran Robbie  Robertson. Robertson was a  founding member, primary  songwriter and lead guitarist of  "The Band", the legendary  group which became Bob  Dylan's backup band after  paying their dues as Ronnie  Hawkins' band - The Hawks.  Robertson wrote such  timeless classics as "The  Weight (Take a load off  fanny...)" and "The Night  They Drove Old Dixie Down"  in the 1960's and produced the  classic and historical  film/concert "The Last  Waltz" in 1976 which featured  Dylan, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Neil Diamond and others and included  a firey guitar-solo trade off between Robertson and Eric Clapton. In the eleven years since  "The Last Waltz" of "The  Band" Robertson has been  very quiet - "I wasn't sure I  had anything more to say..."  he explains.  The untimely death of  former Band-member Richard  Manuel   in   recent   years   is  observed in the album's haunting opening cut - "Fallen  Angel", for which Peter  Gabriel programmed and  played the keyboards as well as  provided the second vocal. Pop  stars "U2" also contribute to  the album, performing on two  of the cuts. Robertson has  presented a dazzling album of  contemporary rock at its finest  with very respectable lyrics.  Above the crowd!  Another good rock record  with slightly less overall appeal  to a broad audience is the  debut album by American  group, "The Brandos". Titled  "Honor Among Thieves", this  album does not have the depth  and maturity' of Robertson's  effort but is a good synthesis of  driving guitar rhythms and sensible lyrics.  In an era (since The Beatles)  when so many English groups  have taken American music  and thrown it back at North  America with new force, it is  interesting now for me to see  this American group, which  sounds distinctively like an  English wave band, throwing  this sound back at the world  with an intelligence and integrity which is decidedly not  English. In songs like "Gettysburg" The Brandos awaken  the trials of America's coming  of age with conscience not  usually heard in a hard-driving  rock group. Now based in New  York City, this group has a  fresh sound I'm certain any fan  of the new rock trends will enjoy. Tuff Stuff!!!

For both environmental   and   humanistic  reasons, most of the sea-going  nations have ceased the practice  and only a few maverick countries such as Japan, Norway and  Iceland, still carry it on. Few  . people would argue that the  : general cessation of whaling is  : not   a   good   thing,   In   the  ; unregulated years, some species  of  the   giant   mammal   were  almost hunted to extinction. Yet  there are men who still recall  their days on the whaleships  ���, with a certain nostalgia. Such a  man is W.A. Hagelund.  Whales No More (Harbour),  is Bill Hagelund's tribute to the  vanished west coast whaling industry and the men who made it  ; tick.   Hagelund  himself went  whaling as a youth in the dying  \ years of the trade and contributes    his    own    vivid  '. reminiscences of what it was  : like. But the bulk of the book is  ; based on the recollections of  ; others. Hagelund spent much  ; time   interviewing   numerous  oldtimers who were intimately  connected with the business and  their salty yarns provide a unique kaleidoscope of harpoons,  heaving seas and high adventure. His treatment of Indian  whaling and the earliest years of  the trade is a bit sketchy but,  since the focus of the book is on  oral history, this is understandable. And it is the unvarnished  sound of the human voice that  gives the study much of its  power and charm.  Hagelund's personal whaling  experiences only encompassed  one season in the early forties  and, while certainly exciting, are  not extensive enough to warrant  a full-length book of their own.  He begins and ends this volume  by reprising his own adventures  and, not surprisingly, these sections contain the best writing in  the book. Here, young Hage-  lund's ship is rammed from  below by a wounded and  furious whale:  There was a dull thud as he hit  the turn of the bilge, lifting the  ship slightly and rolling her to  port. Then, as we rolled back to  level keel, his broad snout rose  up out of the water just ahead  of the bridge, till it was as high  as my eye. Blowing bloody  froth and warm vapour over the  w  Story of West  Coast Slavery  bridge and myself, he fell over  on his side and came within  range of Louis' acutely angled  gun. In a roar that thudded on  my eardrums and blew smoke  and powder dust over the  bridge, our lance blasted into  the stunned whale, and he died  in a tangle of ropes under our  bow, the scene masked from my  eyes by the smoke and the evening's darkness as we continued  to go astern.  Powerful Melvillian stuff that  pulls the reader right into the  story.  The old salts that Hagelund  interviews are not all capable of  such vivid and articulate  description but they spin their  seafaring tales with honesty and  verve. Charlie H. Watson, who  worked in whaling over a 40  year span, describes a horrific  storm off the Queen Charlottes:  Well, by midday we were about  fifteen miles south of the Cape,  and carefully hauling up  towards the Straits, when it  happened. I hadn't been on  watch very long when all of a  sudden the telegraph rang  quickly over to 'Stand-by' and  our whistle gave out a couple of  watery warning gurgles. I made  a grab for the throttle and hung  on for dear life as the ship tossed her head swiftly upwards.  She threw her head up so high  the coal in the bunkers shifted  aft.  I could hear it thunder  against the bulkhead forward of  the boiler. Then she rolled away  over to port. She fell so far over  that everything went flying. I  thought I was going to be  thrown right over the engine!  Before she could right herself or  we could let go to do anything  to help her, she was buried by a  huge sea and tons of water  crashed down into the boiler  and engine room, through the  open skylight and scuttle. Boy,  I'll tell you, I thought we were  goners!  The book abounds in stirring  accounts of this sort. In one  amazing incident, recalled in  detail from different vantage  points, by two oldtimers who  witnessed it, three whales are  impaled by a single harpoon.  Few of Hagelund's informants  fail to mention the foul food,  the primitive working conditions and the overpowering  stench of the whaling stations.  It was not an easy way of life by  anyone's reckoning.  Hagelund closes his book  with a fascinating chapter concerning giant squid, sea serpents  and other ocean oddities. The  volume is lavishly illustrated  with photographs, many of  ' ;m from private collections,  :luding one marvellous shot  of a humpback whale surfacing.  All in all, Whalers No More is a  first-class production, worthy  of a spot on anyone's library  shelf. Heartily recommended.

Hilary  Stewart's  notes and  drawings   to   accompany   the  story of John R. Jewitt, captive  of Maquinna, provide a most  readable account  of the two  years that Jewitt was a slave,  '. albeit an honoured one, to the  . tyee or great chief Maquinna on  the west  coast of Vancouver  : Island.      ; /,i     v  . ...  In 1803 the ship Boston was  ; captured and the crew killed by  ; Maquinna and his people in  revenge of past murders and ill-  treatment by American traders.  Spared was the armorer, Jewitt,  for the sake of his skill in  blacksmithing, and by chance  ��� the sailmaker, Thompson.  Jewitt secretly kept a journal  in great detail and when he at  . last escaped published it and  later with  the aid  of writer,  ; Richard Alsop, turned it into  ; the   narrative   that   has   been  reprinted over the years since.  Hilary Stewart's The Adventures and Sufferings of John R.  Jewitt, Captive of Maquinna is  a widely researched history with  the rich flavour of adventure.  Jewitt determined to survive by  adapting to the demands of his  Channel 11  Thursday, December 17  7:00 p.m.  Christmas on Angel Street  .

He depicts faithfully the ways  of the native before they were  contaminated by white culture.  He came to know the West  Coast people intimately, far  beyond the trader's interest in  the sea otter pelts.  Food and the manner of  eating was at first disgusting to  him, but he found 'hunger will  break through stone walls'. He  found too that the native people  were disgusted by food he  prepared in his white man's  way.  Jewitt and Thompson did  their labour of fetching  firewood dutifully. Having seen  a runaway slave killed in  punishment with pebbles dropped one by one into his mouth,  neither wished to be treated  likewise. And there was always  the hope of escape.  Their escape was a clever ruse  that required some courage, but  was done without bloodshed. A  suspenseful moment in the  whole of his adventure in captivity.

The lunches are  attractively priced and presented and served up with a minimum  amount of delay.  On Friday of last week, between a hectic morning and some  afternoon appointments, I found myself very hungry and with a  limited amount of time. I dashed into the Cedar's to rectify the  situation.  There was no time to organize lunch with a companion but  with the friendly crowd at the Cedar's, that is usually no problem. In fact, I had to decline an invitation to join a table of  leisurely lunchers with the plea of lack of time.  The luncheon specials are generally two; one for light lunch  eaters and one for those who mean serious business. I have been  in both categories and can attest to the tastiness of both the  economic and the hearty offerings.  Last Friday I was definitely in the hearty category and wasted  no time in ordering the mashed potatoes with gravy which accompanied a breaded veal cutlet. A generous and delicious salad  accompanied the meat and potatoes. For good measure, 1  ordered the tomato soup which accompanied the lighter sandwich offering.  I scarcely had time to say a few words of greeting to one of my  associates who was lunching with her sister before the food was  on the table. The soup was tangy and invigorating and the veal  cutlet was everything it should have been.  Mine can be a hearty appetite at its best, but by the time I  finished the last morsel of veal, the last forkful of mashed  potatoes, and the last crisp mouthful of lettuce and tomato, 1  had surely had enough. It was delicious.  With a half pint of draught ale, the bill came to less than $7  and I was able to buy five tickets on the Cedar's food hamper  draw, proceeds to support the Elves Christmas drive.  If you haven't tried the Cedar's for lunch, I recommend you  do so. If you do it this week you can get in on the draw on behalf  of the Elves Club. The draw takes place on December 19.

Trail Bay Centre, Sechelt  JllinilifiSllI  by Sam Walker  Yes, we are still golfing at the  Pender Harbour Golf Club.  Neither wind nor rain can deter  golfers in the Harbour area.  The ladies seem to have convinced the weatherman that  good weather should be turned  on for their Thursday outings.  On the other hand, the seniors  are trying to prove that they can  golf in anything and everything  but six feet of snow. And for  the duffers this is the time of  year that we can get our practise  rounds in.  This has been a good year for  the club. With our opening year  jitters behind us we have now  settled into a smooth running  operation. Great improvements  have been made to the course  and we have become a respectable member of the golfing  community. I am amazed at the  number of people from all over  the country that can now say,  "I played around at Pender  Harbour."  As we enter into the new year  all club members are reminded  to set aside January 9. This is  the date of the second annual  general meeting and election of  directors. The meeting will be  held in the clubhouse at 2 pm. A  good turnout is expected.  For those who might be in  terested there are only a few  memberships available. Any  person interested in joining the  club would be well advised to  take advantage of the opportunity to join at this time.  In case you didn't see it on  television you might be interested to know that the  Pender Harbour Golf Club was  honoured by the B.C. Lions  Cripple Children Society. The  Society presented a plaque to  our club for the greatest number  of participants of any golf  course to take part in their 'Swing Weekend' fund raising drive  early this year. The aggregate  amount raised by participating  clubs was $8000.  Jack McFarlane of Madeira  Park attended Timmy's  Telethon where the total donation was presented to the B.C.  Lions organization and he accepted the honour plaque on  behalf of the Pender Harbour  club. Well done golfers.  As this will be the last Pender  Golf column for this year may I  take this opportunity to thank  those people who have contributed to our writings and  wish all good golfing during the  coming year.  And from the 19th hole:  Don't forget 'no matter how  you slice it, it's still a golf ball'.

The Piggies, as usual, were  sent out first to soften the turf.  Scribes' fourth divisions have  held together well over the years  and proved solid against the  always changing Piggies.  From the sidelines one would  think Gibsons had two packs on  the field at once. Filling the  standoff slot was (back from  the boondocks) Wee Pea Pearce  and at inside centre, Big Jamie  Gill, back from a sore knee injury.  During half action Gibsons  was awarded a five yard scrum  off a Scribe knock on. The eight  man set scrum surge of the blue  pack heaved the Scribes into  their own end zone where  break-forward Rick Lawson  wisely fell on the ball for the try.  The try ended up as the only  Gibsons major outside of a  Mike Gibson penalty goal. The  Scribes took control in the second half handling the Piggies  by a 17-7 margin.._..���..  t  The second game of the afternoon started with two very  quick tries by both the Scribes  and Gibsons third sides. Standoff Dean Johnston, who played  a very strong game at his position, set up the first score faking  a pop kick in open field and cutting inside before setting up  Tracy Meyers with the path to  pay dirt. The Scribes answered  back minutes later with a lovely  corner try overlapping a surprised blue three line.  What looked in early form to  be a close game quickly lost face  in Gibsons' favour. To say the  least the boys in blue completely  overwhelmed their guests from  the second score on. Gibsons  sunk in for a decisive 38-8 victory.  Scoring for the blues, winger  Niels Payne with two tries while  scrum half David Macleod,  wingers Brian Lymer and  replacement Ken Sorenson and  break Hugh Duffy all managed  one each.  The Pigs are believed to be in  second or third place in their  division after two prior away  victories against Ex Brits and  Trojans in November* Second  half rugby will continue in mid  January.

In both the Atom and Pee  Wee Divisions, the number of  teams were increased from two  to three. It was then decided to  hold off league games until all  the teams had equal practice  times which gave coaches an  overall view of team strengths  and weaknesses.' There have  been exhibition games though,  and the following is a list of  wins and losses:  On December 3 in the Pee  Wee Division the Trail Islanders  beat the Thunderbirds 9-7. Top  goal scorers for Trail Islanders  were: Graham Ruck with 4;  Brad Wingfield with 3, and  Curtis Francis with 2. Mike  Lewis had a great game scoring  5 of his team's 7 goals.  On December 5, again in the  Pee Wee Division, the Thunder-  birds downed the Blackhawks  6-5. Graham Ruck scored 4 and  Darren Boodle scored 2 for the  Thunderbirds.

For the  Lions, Micheal Yates had 5  goals with Tige Pollock scoring  l.  The Bantams met with the  Pee Wee Allstars and had two  fairly hard-fought games. The  Bantams won both but it wasn't  easy.

So  much of Christmas is a feast  -not only for our palates, but  also for our eyes. We see the  sparkling coloured lights, the  brightly decorated store windows, and the look of wonder  in a child's eyes. But have your  readers ever thought what it  would be like to be blind and  to be deprived of such sight?  According to the World  Health Organization, there are  over 40 million blind people in  the world - mostly in developing countries. It is a fact that  we live in 'careless' times, and  although many of us say we  'care', how do we go about  alleviating the suffering of our  fellow human beings? One  comment I heard this year  was, "I don't know how to  care - or where to begin."  Caring comes from within  us; it isn't something we don,  like a cloak at this time of  year. One way to learn how to  care is to join a team of  volunteers that supports a  Canadian-based organization  called Operation Eyesight  Universal (OEU). OEU's annual goal for its work in the  Developing World is to treat  one million eyes and to restore  CHRISTMAS  at the  Calvary Baptist Church  Park Rd. Gibsons  taatwihiirB a~iMT��>'y-|T��-iippaiiiii>ln  sight to 100,000 curable blind  people.  Earlier this year, I was fortunate enough to be part of an  OEU volunteer team that  toured India. Across that vast  sub-continent, I saw for  myself how effectively OEU  uses its funds, spending only  10 percent of the monies raised  on promotion and administration. The remaining 90 percent  goes to finance blindness  prevention and sight-restoration projects, where not just  sight is restored, but also  human dignity.  From the squalid slums of  Bombay to the impressive  capital city of New Delhi, I  witnessed the selfless dedication of the Indian doctors,  nurses and administrators.  With the help of OEU, they  are creating new beginnings  and changing lives for as little  as $25 per patient. Each $25  raised in Canada goes to  finance cataract surgery,  medication, hospitalization,  food, cataract glasses, and  follow-up care for a patient.  An Indian proverb tells us,  "All that is not given is lost."  Before we lose our perspective  on the true meaning of  Christmas - God's gift to the  world - why not give one of the  most precious gifts of all - the  gift of sight?  Donations may be sent to  Operation Eyesight Universal,  P.O. Box 123, Station M,  Calgary, Alberta T2P 2H6.  Donors will receive not only a  receipt for income tax purposes, but also a patient identification card, indicating  which patient in the Developing World received this extra  special gift.

So, Elwood Veitch, bearing  the pompous title of 'Minister  of State', accompanied by a  retinue of high-priced 'Poo-  bahs' with more high-sounding  titles, are to hold a public  meeting to answer our concerns  but only if submitted in writing  within three days of notification  of the meeting. Presumably, if  the questions are too tough for  the panel, no answer shall be  forthcoming. It would appear  that the forthcoming meeting is  no more than a 'rigged' public,  affairs exercise to make it appear that the government is concerned about public opinion.  Are these people afraid to  answer inpromptu questions  from the floor?  Our 'Alice in Wonderland'  government announced regionalization several months ago,  but still doesn't have any details  of the plan; granted $8,000 of  public monies to that nebulous  plan by Cabinet Order without  reference to our elected  representatives; appointed eight  ministers of state plus their staff  to set up another layer of  government in this over-  governed country and have  devised another way to  squander our tax dollars.  What we need is more  democracy, not more layers of  government run by appointees  and not, public meetings 'rigged' so as not to embarrass the  speakers. By the way, I can  recall the name of our MLA but  not his appearance.  Lome B. Blain  Project grateful  Editor:  The Board of Directors of the  Gibsons Landing Theatre Project Society has asked me to give  public expression of our  gratitude to Jim Tyner for the  production of a projected  operating budget for the proposed theatre facility. This puts  at our disposal one of the most  essential tools to be used as we  enter the major phase of our  fund-raising efforts.  We are also very fortunate to  be the recipients of the proceeds"  of the dance when many local  people enjoyed an evening of  dancing to the big band sound  of 'The Harbour Lights' at the  Gibsons Legion on November  28.  Community support of this  nature is invaluable to the success of our project and it illustrates that people in all areas  of the Sunshine Coast are cognizant of the need for the type of  facility we are working towards.  Eve H. Smart  ! Secretary  Children of light  Editor:  Two thousand years ago, a  light was given us to illuminate  our way. A message of peace  and forgiveness took human  form. Our truth as children of  the one God was demonstrated  by His life of love and  forgiveness.  Calendar  Editor:  Bank of Montreal employees  throughout BC have launched  Project Sunshine in order to  raise funds for BC's Children's  Hospital. We are selling 1988  calendars featuring drawings  submitted by children who have  visited the hospital.  Calendars are available at any  Bank of Montreal branch for  $5.30 which includes sales tax.  All proceeds above costs are  donated to BC's Children's  Hospital.  John R. Clarke  Manager, Bank of Montreal,  Gibsons  When I visit the Christmas  light display at the Weals' of  Roberts Creek, I am reminded  of that star that beckoned those  wise men seeking truth and am  grateful to the Weals for helping to awaken in our hearts that  ancient knowledge that we are  all children of the light.

DEVLIN  Director  SEE  as  sen  PART C OF 26  To the Peoples  of the World  A   BAHA'i   STATEMENT   ON  Peace  No SERIOUS ATTEMPT to sel human affairs a-  right. to achieve world peace, can ignore religion. Man's perception and practice of it are  largely the stuff of history. An eminent historian  described religion as a "faculty of human  nature." That the perversion of this faculty has  contributed to much of the confusion in society and the conflicts in and between individuals  can hardly be denied. But neither can any fair-  minded observer discount the preponderating  influence exerted by religion on the vital expressions of civilization. Furthermore, its indispen-  sability to social order has repeatedly been  demonstrated by its direct effect on laws and  morality.  Writing of religion as a social force.  BahaVllah said: "Religion is the greatest of all  means for the establishment of order in the  world and for the peaceful contentment of all  that dwell therein." Referring to the eclipse or  corruption of religion, he wrote: "Should the  lamp of religion be obscured, chaos and confusion will ensue, and the lights of fairness, of  justice, of tranquillity and peace cease to shine."  In an enumeration of such consequences the  Baha i writings point out that the "perversion  of human nature, the degradation of human conduct, the corruption and dissolution of human  institutions, reveal themselves, under such circumstances, in their worst and most revolting  aspects. Human character is debased, confidence is shaken, the nerves of discipline are  relaxed, the voice of human conscience is stilled, the sense of decency and shame is obscured,  conceptions of duty, of solidarity, of reciprocity and loyalty are distorted, and the very feeling of peacefulness, of joy and of hope is  gradually extinguished."

Jupiter tends to bring out the generosity*  in each of us to a point where we lose our sense of-*  perspective. . -)>  Especially affected will be those people with>  their Suns in a soft aspect to the place where*>  Jupiter takes its rest. Those born on April 9,10 or*:  11; August 12, 13 or 14; and December 11, 12 or^  13 in any year, are especially prone to self-^  indulgence at this time. Enjoy it, but don't overdoj;  it. 3D  Anyone who has a problem restraining their:*  spending impulses should turn over their credit;*  cards and cheque books to a trusted, stingy friend>  for a few days, unless you want to find Januarys  extremely tight. ,      ���'*.  The Jupiter whammy makes you feel as if you��  want to do something special for everyone you-*  know, and a few people you don't. It's an ad->  mirable feeling, but being conditioned in North>  America, your likely reaction will be to reach for;;  your wallet. ~Z  Why not act on those feelings without putting a>  financial burden on your spouse and family? Try:-  thinking of a few really creative ways to give of,*  yourself. I'll bet there are people you know who;;:  may need some help getting a Christmas tree, or  who might like a ride to do their own Christmas^  shopping. Is there someone that might want to go-'  for a nice drive to look at Christmas lights, or so-/  meone who'd appreciate having some firewood--:  chopped? :'���  It's a wonderful time for this astrological-^  aspect to happen. Generosity and giving- are��  treasured greatly at this time, of year. But spen->:  ding, especially over-spending, is a shallow^;  response to this positive influence. Giving ofcj  yourself and your time is so much healthier, for:*:  both you and the recipient of your generosity.   >  Gardeners'  rest time  4  by Marguerite  :*  COAST NEWS Photo   Reprints  Any published photo or your 5x7  choice from the contact sheets    Q'x 1A  $600|  QOO  BLANKET CLASSIFIED ADVERTISING  These Ads appear in the more than 70 Newspapers of the B.C. and Yukon Community  Newspapers Association and reach more than 900,000 homes and a potential two million readers.  $1.29. for 25 words  (.S3, per each additional word)        Call the COAST NEWS at 885-3930 to place one.

Michael Skinner, of the ombudsman's office, invited the  task force to make comment on  these and other issues to do with  fish farming.  ANGORA &  LEATHER GLOVES  for those cold winter days        ��  Lots & lots of  PURE SILK SCARVES  In ail the colours of the rainbow  Koch sees exciting  time for Sechelt  "It's an exciting time," said  Mayor Bud Koch at the inaugural meeting of the District  - of Sechelt last Monday. Newly  elected Aldermen Nancy  MacLarty and Robert Wilson,  and re-elected Alderman  Michael Shanks had just taken  their Oath of Office and Oath  of Allegiance. Mayor Koch was  making his address to the new  council and speaking of the  challenges facing the recently  restructured municipality.  ' 'There's lots to do and it's all  positive," said Koch. "We've  had a good council in the past."  The committee appointments  were tentative and may change  from time to time as the need  arises.  "Nothing is cast in stone,"  said Koch.  Alderman Shanks will remain  chairman of the Arena Committee and Alderman Herder  will stay as public works chairman.  Alderman Craig will be chairman of the Education, Health  and Culture Committee which  include the specific areas of  library, health, PEP, Crime-  stoppers, and youth awareness.  Alderman Kolibas will chair the  Planning Committee.  As for the newcomers, Alderman Wilson will represent  Sechelt within the SCRD and  Alderman MacLarty will be the  Management Committee chairman. Under management is included public relations.  The Ways and Means Committee is no more. Instead a new  committee, the Economic  Development Committee has  been formed that will be chaired  by Mayor Koch himself. Included under that committee are airport, revitalization, and  finance.  The Acting Mayor until May  1988 will be Alderman Shanks.  A tenative 1988 preliminary  budget was released but it was  stressed that the figures in no  way represented what would be  a final budget which must be  submitted to the province by  January 18. It was instead only  a working paper.  Retiring Alderman Ken Short  was presented with a plaque.  Anne Langdon was also slated  for a presentation but was  unable to attend.  Two or three members of the  public turned out to witness  inauguration and after the official ceremonies were served  sandwiches, pastries, and wine.
