 _       -,._ ���.-  .Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria. BC  V8V 1X4  ���:--.4;-  S7&  Published on the Sunshine Coast      25* per copy on news stands  ?.  At newspaper convention  Premier scores a hit  with B.C. publishers  by John Burnside  Government relationships  with the media, the need to end  confrontation in B.C.. a fairer  distribution of federal funds,  and the nature of the present  Social Credit election campaign  were among the issues addressed by Premier Bill Vander Zalm  in a speech to the B.C. and  Yukon Newspaper Association  in Vancouver last Thursday.  Vander Zalm told the collected publishers of community  .newspapers that he had always  had a good relationship with the  media throughout his 20 years  in politics.  "You  get  back  what  you  give," said the premier. "I've  1 always made myself available  and have tried to answer questions as honestly as possible. If  you try to hide from the media  .or to mislead them they'll get  the story anyway but not from  your  perspective.  It  must be  , realized that the media constitute an important part of our  democratic institutions."  In answer to a subsequent  question from a newspaper  publisher, the premier answered  in the affirmative about the  televising of the work of the  legislature. "We* might even be  able to have it in place lay the  opening of the next session," he  said.  The premier had come to the  newspaper association dinner  direct from further talks with  the forest companies aimed / at  ending the current strike in the  forest industry.  "This afternoon we met with  the business executives. The initial meetings were not that successful but we won't give up.  After a two-hour meeting with  the representatives of the companies we are possibly a little  closer to a solution. I provided  them with an option which they  are now considering."  The premier pointed to the  enormous resources which B.C.  enjoys.  "If we can put an end to confrontation and develop trust in  this province then optimism will  grow and investment will  follow," ,said Premier Vander  Zalm.  The premier was critical of  the way B.C. was treated in;  confederation. *  "We have 12 per cent of the;  national population but get only;  three per cent of federal pro-;  curements. We must ask for;  more. Maybe a little less than 12? _~  per cent but closer to it."        >  The premier pointed out that��  of the billions of dollars spent in��  this country to develop new in-��>  dustry, 48 per cent is spent in..  the Ottawa River Valley.        ,." ,  On his refusal to debate NDK  leader, Bob Skelly the premier'  questioned the value of such''.'  debates. *  "I've   seen   all   the   same;,  debates as.you have," he said,*  "and I don't think you learn*  much  about the issues from-  them. If you people," he said,* "  indicating the assembled publishers, "would give a half page"  in your papers to Skelly and a"  half page to me to answer-ques-^ ,.  tions on the issues a great deal,  more   learning   would   take,.  place."  The premier and his wife left;;  the banquet hall to the prolong-"  ed applause of the obviously inW  pressed publishers of community newspapers. ^..  ���^Z,^yy4r&'4  President of the National Liberal Party Iona Campagnola was in Sechelt last week to help Liberal candidate Gordon Wilson open the Sunshine Coast campaign office.

The  decision   was   made   at    last  Wednesday's meeting after the  ��� >��� committee heard a report from  ,|Community  Development Of-  yficer Irene Lugsdin".  ?    MsT-ugsdin was reporting on  \ a  recent   visit   made  to   Port  ";'...Alberni to research that city's  ^economic strategy.;One of the  ^projects being worked on is a  '^community kiln, something that  i had been identified as a need for  tithe   Sunshine   Coast   !in   an  Economic employment strategy  ^produced   by   the   Economic  ^Development   Committee   and  j��the   Sunshine "Coast   Employment Development Society last  SMay.  $' Lugsdin, was enthusiastic  pabout what she'd seen in Port  j^Mbemi and similar possibilities  ��_br development in this region.  __After discussing the possible  ^economic effects of building a  ^-community kiln here, the com-  ^mittee decided that a feasibility  <study would be necessary to  identify- specific community  Sneeds in terms of size, location  j^and the operational and financial structure of such an  ijendeavor. . y-  _ It was pointed out that much  yof the expertise needed for the  i^study was present jn committee  members. In order to reduce the  ���jost of a professional consultant, a sub-committee was  struck to outline the terms of  reference of a .feasibility study.  At the next Forestry Advisory  Meeting, committee members  will examine the outline arid  look within their ranks for  sources of the information  needed.  Tim Clement, owner of Clement Sawing Service and committee member, has already  done some information gathering on the subject. He .suggests  that with a lack of natural gas  on the Coast and the high cost  of oil, an electric kiln seemsto  be the obvious way to go. For  community use, it would need  to have several compartments  each of which could be adjusted  to handle a variety of load sizes  and species. However, he adds,  "We're just in the early stages  of exploring this."  The location of such a facility  on the Sunshine Coast would  open up the area for the re-  manufacturing industry, says  Clement. Presently, the cost.of  shipping wood to . Vancouver  for drying makes ' it unprofitable.  Steve Tsuruda of Bayside  Sawmills, agrees that the idea  has potential. His company had  plans to build their own kiln last  year but had to put them on  hold due to the costs of other  expansions, and he feels that  having a kiln here would be "a  wonderful thing for the peninsula."-   ���:;���>-.  ._;;;,:..>.y  Richard Chamberlain,  .another mill owner, says that he  would certainly find, it useful  and that he would have a  market for the dried lumber ''1 f  the community is going to do  anything in forestry a kiln  makes the most sense."  s_onally-executed Coast-wide ef-  j/'fort which will deliver real in-  ' creases in visitor traffic and pro-  fits' ' the Sunshine Coast  Tourism Association (SCTA)  has announced 'wide-ranging  policies and new strategies to  better serve its members beyond  Expo '86'.  The new strategy was announced last week in a three-  page press release written by  President Richard Tomkies.

In .fact, Stephen  isaid, it was thought that the  |beqr. killed on Friday would be  ,^rfie sow but was instead a  ^healthy male.  f   Most bears on the Sunshine  Coast are now found in settled  And  areas, Stephen explained,  why?  Two hundred years ago forest  stretched down to the shoreline;  there was. little light below the  trees and therefore no shrubs,  especially berry bearing shrubs,  with food for bears. It was the  advent of the early settlers that  brought with it the first wave of  forest clearing with the following, growth of food shrubs.  The   subsequent   waves   of  settlement and the recent  estate booms have  the creation of "a  bears  beneath   the  elevation".  .  "This area is stuffed  real  resulted in  Utopia for  150   foot  with  food for bears," Stephen continued. "Where there were two  or'three or four breeding pairs  of bears, now, the land will support as many bears as we permit  to be here. This year the problem has been compounded by  the poor wild berry crop at  higher elevations so even if the  bears wanted to live off the land  they would have a problem.  "We've certainly created the  problem ourselves, albeit unwittingly. Probably now the bears  realize that they don't have to  return to the higher places but  can stay here and feed. The  mother bear teaches her cubs  not to strip a blueberry bush but  how to tear apart garbage cans,  those funny metal logs with  food inside."  Stephen said he regretted this  influx of bears but that the  more bears lived in settled areas  the more potential there would  be for personal injury.  "Surprise exacerbates the  situation. You get a black bear  haying a good time in the garage  with the bag of dog food you've  left there by mistake.

Coast News, Octobers, 1986  I<_U-_qelI_-_-V--k-_S___  ________)___________________���__!  /"  A welcome  initiative  Mayor Bud Koch deserves the fullest credit for taking  the initiative in arranging for the meeting between elected  representatives with the Deputy Minister of Municipal Affairs in attendance. The meeting which is to take place this  week can do no harm and may do much good.  The nature of the work of putting but a regional  newspaper such as ours takes the representatives of the  newspaper into all of the different centres of the Sunshine  Coast on a more or less regular basis. We have found good  people, proud of where they live, in all areas of the Sunshine Coast and have consistently held that the way forward for this lovely place was to move away from the  hostility and suspicion which has been the dark shadow in  our Sunshine.  We have taken this position because we have got to  know all the areas and we are confident that when some of  the artificial barriers come down and we realize more fully  that our futures are bound up together we will begin to  make progress towards the happy, prosperous, and harmonious place that we all want to see.  The meeting between the elected representatives is a  good start. Much of what divides us is illusion which will  dissipate with further knowledge.  We would argue that the way ahead economically is 95  per cent co-operation and necessary compromise. The  other five per cent, we suggest, is the necessary business of  identifying the congenitally quarrelsome who. are incapable of either compromise or co-operation and ensuring that they do not come to positions of influence among  us.,-"  We congratulate Mayor Koch on this initiative and  would urge all elected representatives to become better acquainted with each other and with the viewpoint of our  different regions. There is nothing to lose except ignorance  and mistrust.  Warnings  The report last week that there was a fire aboard a  ���Soviet submarine in the North Atlantic brought another  chill to the spine.  The cliche has been that unrealistic 'peaceniks' and environmentalists have been whining for years whilst the  'hard-headed and practical' took no notice of the_ wimps.  The Chejrhobyl disaster and this latest incident are warnings that the 'wimps' may have been right all along.: How  many warnings will we need? How many warnings will we  have?  5 YEARS AGO  Canfor Vice President Bill Hughes announced to mill  employees October 1 a $180 million capital spending  program to modernize and improve production at the  Port Mellon mill.  A recommendation will be made at the next regular  regional board meeting that the author of the Sunshine  Coast Parks Study, Stuart Lefaux, be asked to complete  the final step and design the Official Parks Plan for the  Sunshine Coast.  10 YEARS AGO  A joint meeting of the School Board and the Regional  Board was held on Wednesday at the Elementary  School in Sechelt to discuss the feasibility of joint funding of recreational facilities throughout the district.  Also represented at the meeting was the Sechelt Village  Council. Gibsons Village Council was not represented.  The rebuilding of the Pender Harbour School lent some  urgency to the deliberations of the evening.  20 YEARS AGO  Tp Dear Doris^  This man I am working with, he is getting awfu!  serious with me. I cannot stay in the room with him very  long. I am trying to be a good woman. I don't want tc  cause any trouble, but I'll have to. Scarec  Dear Scared:  If he's the boss, you'd better quit. If he's a fellow  worker, ask the boss to shift you to another room.  30 YEARS AGO  According to the new telephone directory, effective  October 1, there-have been increases in all districts in  the number of 'phones installed. There are 1124 names  listed in this district. Gibsons shows 588 'phones,  Sechelt 382 and Pender Harbour climbing upwards of  134. These figures are exclusive of those listed-as toll  stations and there have been several hew installations  since the directory was issued.  40 YEARS AGO  A number of thefts from mail boxes at,Roberts Creek  were cleared up when a ten year old boy confessed he  had opened envelopes looking for money. Luckily for  the addressees he dropped them where they could be  found. His only loot was two $1 bills but he claims he  lost these before he had a chance to spend them.

Although this issue is the main  concern to all those in the ��eace  movement, and recognized as a  top priority by many others, it  seems likely to be almost entirely ignored throughout this election. Why? -..:     .  l recall a comment made last  spring at the Vancouver Peace  Symposium by Rear Admiral  Eugene Carroll, Deputy Director of the Centre for Defense  Information   in   Washington  DC 'No one should be allowed  to run for office.without"ta&rig  a    position    on r nuclear  weapons," _       lte��$f  '   On the same Occasion the  eminent economist, John Ken-f  neth Galbraith, said:. "Let us'  not have any other; issue on  which we are as willing to turn  people   deservedly   out   of  office."  Yet another such / comment  , came from George McNight of  the Alberrii Valley Coalition for  Disarmament, at the People's  Enquiry last January. Pointing  out the absence of politicians at  that event he said: "Where are  our aldermen? Where are our  regional district representatives?  Where are our mayors? Where  are the people who claim to  represent the interests bf Vancouver Island?   ���  "I suggest, Mr. Chairman,  that we will never vote for  anybody, in any municipal,  school board* federal, provincial, or even trade union election* who doesn't, by word and  deed, speak out and stand up  for peace."  Yet for all of this, how do we  make peace an issue?  For my part, I have chosen  four issues of concern to British  Columbians which may be said  to be within the jurisdiction, at  least morally if not in every case  legally, of the provincial  government. .  This past weekend, at a  meeting in Nanaimo, I had the  opportunity to present Mr.  Vander Zalm with those questions (as well as a copy of the  proceedings of the People's Enquiry as a back ground information), asking that he reply in  writing before the end of the  campaign.  I also had a chance to meet  with Mr. Skelly this week and-  presented him with the same  questions. I told both men that I  "   hope to report their replies in  this column before the campaign ends, in addition, I plan  to interview all the, local can-  ;������ ~ didates in order to determine  ���;..    where they stand.  In fact, I would recommend  that if you are concerned with  peaceyand..related issues^ that  .pw<_?o^tactthe candidates,to)et  ^Cttieni k_i__<v where y<Hr_^a ybteV'  ���jfirj^.stand! ' _   '- ---yy *.���'*����������� K"^K ���.'  ^Jr The poirtt is, it's obviously tip  to those who feel peace is an  issue - or THE issue - to make it  so^in this provincial Campaign.  It must be recognized as a difV.  ficiilt issue which, as  far as  politicians   are   concerned,   is  better left well enough alone. So  unless   we   force   them   to  :  recognize that a considerable  number of voters consider the  issue a top priority, we can kiss  this opportunity goodbye.  Questions:  1. Not only is Manitoba a  Nuclear Weapons Free Zone  (NWFZ), but it is considered  likely that Ontario will make a  similar declaration this year.  There are over 100 NWFZ's in  the United States and this  November Oregon will be  holding a state-wide NWFZ  referendum. In B.C. there are  46 NWFZ communities already,  in which a majority of B.C.  citizens live. There is also a  municipalities petition campaign being launched which  may result in support from the  Union of B.C. Municipalities  for a province-wide NWFZ.  (a) Would you  favour the  creation of a NWF B.C.?  (b) If presented with a peti  tion signed by a majority of  B.C.'s municipal leaders,  and/or a request from the  Union of B.C. Municipalities  requesting that the province  become a NWFZ, what action  would you take?  2. In 1985 there were nuclear  powered and/or nuclear  weapons-equipped warships in  B.C. waters for a total of 237  days, or about two thirds of the  year.  - these vessels are powered by  reactors one tenth to one sixth  the size of the Chernobyl reactor,  - they have no containment,  - they are subject to a variety  of marine risks like any vessel,  - they have not been licensed  > by any Canadian authority,  - they are not under Canadian  control, ( .,;.,.;.,,  -even'a conventional accident  with a nuclear weapon could  result "in a deadly cloud of  plutonium, 1000 times as  poisonous as nerve gas.  Given the dangers to coastal  B.C. communities, would you  be willing to request of the  federal government that they  cease allowing such vessels into  our coastal waters?  3. Following on the former  question, a public inquiry was  held last winter with experts  from across the country who  concluded, for more than just  the reasons cited above, that the  Canada-US agreement governing the Nanoose  Bay under  water weapons testing range  should be terminated and th_.  facility converted to norif.  military uses. .     f'r  Studies in the US have shovyrj,  that conversion of military  facilities to non-military uses is  an economic benefit to host  communities.  (a) Are you prepared to support conversion of the Nanooje  Bay installation if it can be  shown that an economic advantage can be gained for the province by converting the base? '>'  (b) Would you be prepared  for the provincial government  to take part in a study of feasible alternative uses for the  facility? ' :'  4. As you are probably  aware, the US Air Force will be  starting low-level flight testing  over B.C., originating in tire  north aftd ending' at;the Com%;  Canadian Forces Base. Planes^;:  involved will be US B52's ahd  FB Ill's, as well as CF-118V  These flights will give the  bombers an opportunity tb  simulate potential low altitude  strikes into the Soviet Union.  They will fly at altitudes as low  as 400 feet. On the east coast,  where such flights have begun,  the population is enraged at the  noise and environmental impact. '"-  Would you be prepared oh  behalf of your constituents ib  ask the federal government to  cease or relocate such flight  testing?

'Charles /.illard  Tyner Talk  i.  projects of real value  by James H. Tyner  .  it has been with considerable  amusement that I have followed  the performance of the promoters of tourism on the Sunshine Coast as they expend their  energy and the money from  government and other sources  on projects of little interest and  of no lasting value.  There was the Salmon Shark  Derby wherein great numbers of  visitors were to be attracted to  the Sunshine Coast tp catch dog  fish. Although prizes were offered, the project closed with a  reported shortfall of some  $17,000.  There was the U-Catch-'Em  affair developed by Aqua West.  Hordes of visitors were expected to line up and take their  turn catching captive salmon in  a caged pond. For this privilege  each visitor was to shell out $30.  It is understood that govern.  ment funding of the Aqua West  project was about $200,000 and  ; still- the venture failed with a  reported   shortfall   of   some  $70,000.  To have spent money on such  things does not reflect well upon  the judgment of the government. To excuse themselves by  saying it was lottery money and  did not cost the taxpayer  anything is ridiculous for all  money in the hands of the  government is the taxpayers'  money.  The government should be  aware that if tourists are to be  attracted to the Sunshine Coast  then it must be made attractive  to them.  The government would display far greater wisdom if it  would give active support to the  first class theatre proposed by  the Eileen Glassford Arts Foundation. This society is proposing  to build a cultural centre at Gibsons to provide for local  theatre,   dance,   literary   and  music organizations and performing arts groups from outside  the region.  The foundation needs assistance in capital funding and is  worthy of government support  as such a theatre would create a  focus for residents and visitors  and would be of great lasting  value.  Another project worthy of  government support would be a  good fair ground with appropriate buildings for exhibitions and with provision for  track and field events. Such a  place would attract circuses of  quality. This is a much needed  facility long overdue on the  Sunshine Coast. The government could not go wrong lending assistance to this as it  would provide lasting entertainment for residents and tourists.  An interesting program requiring very little funding has  been undertaken on Prince Edward Island with considerable  success. This is a competition  for grounds improvements  wherein residents compete in  their presentation of flowers  and gardening displays - prizes  being awarded to those with the  best arrangements.  These competitions are very  attractive to tourists and  ���residents and give tone to the  countryside. Such competitions  are interesting and the government should be prepared to  assist such ah undertaking for  the Sunshine Coast.  The government in its effort^  to   promote   tourism   shoufl;  realize   that   there  are  manji-  things of real value which wou|$;  both improve the cultural environment of the region and attract   visitors.    These'ttjings  should cost no more than tfa\  money now being frittered away  on foolish projects.  V" c_  Towards greater unity a aid Harmony  Esditor:  # The upcoming provincial  ejection offers all of us on the  JJunshine Coast the challenge to  $brk towards greater unity and  rjarmony. Too often in the past  Have we seen examples of in-  cpviduals or groups criticizing  |pd attacking each other in  ways which are destructive and  f"_f_.  ^One of the drawbacks of living in a small community is that  it becomes difficult to separate  issues from people. We tend to-  label individuals and from then  to see them in only that light  without taking the time to examine their ideas carefully.  There often exists a large barrier between so-called 'free  enterprisers' and 'socialists' -but  the barrier is a false one created  by our fears and unwillingness  to listen to each other; Instead  we prefer to let our emotions  make, decisions for us and we  blank out; and react adversely  not only;tb what is being said,  but also tp the speaker.  All of jus on the Sunshine  Coast facfe common problems,  we share a common work and  home environment and many of  our goals! are similar. Why do  we persist! in allowing our few  differences stand in the way of  open and respectful communications?  |��i No. one person, no one party  '$r ideology has all the answers.  ,It is so easy to tear down.and  destroy and so difficult to use  our differences as bridges for  greater understanding.  But if we are ever going to get  anywhere in creating a more  harmonious community and  peaceful world we must be more  open to seeing our differences  as opportunities for growth and  transformation. *  M.

Hditor's note: The following letter was received for publication.  Nfeybr and Council  T&wri bf Gibsons  Efear i Madame   and    Sirs:  Fife;, Gibsons Marina (GMHI)  i^tiVvould like to thank you for  yjjjurletter of July 10, 1986 in  ri*.ponse to my letter Of July 2,  #6i  !Slyly first question was 'How  much  has  the  town  received  from  the marina?',  and  you  responded   by   advising   how  much the marina was 'charged'.  Is this to say the marina is not  current  with  its debts  to the  town? i.e. taxes?  ^ As I have asked the inspection department of the Ministry  of. Municipal Affairs for a ruling pertaining to my question  number 2, and your response, I  will leave that for the meantime.  i. My third question asked why  the .marina pays no taxes on  LOts D and E to which you  responded that these lots are  park. If you were to examine a  map bf the area you would find  that the only area zoned park is  Lot E. The larger Lot (D) is not  zoned park and in fact is a portion of their parking area.  In regards to the fourth question where I asked if it was your  intention to instruct the marina  to repay the overcharges I cited,  you responded (and I  paraphrase) that it was a problem between the marina and  myself This was a very inappropriate (if not legally indefensible) position to take due to the  fact I had advised you of the bylaw infractions (May 2, 1986).  .However, you chose to ignore  my requests to correct these infractions and attempted to correct your past inactions by  amending the by-law (June J 7,  1986), to approve of the rates  currently being charged by the  marina. This did hot address the  infraction   period.    You   had  Future at stake?  Editor:  Re: Hardy Island Sea Farms.  Wtf. I ask the regional board, the  provincial,   government   and  residents of the Coast to look  ���past a five or 10 year plan to a  vision of our Coast in 50 or 100  ,y��ars. Right now it seems that  ���opr   'undeveloped'   coast   is  endless, that all pur land and  isalt water can absorb just about  ^anything.- tBut 1 see more and  ,<mpre  'shellfish  contaminated'  ^signs, not only around industry  and cities,  but  in  places like  ^Pender   Harbour  and   Myrtle  LRocks and Saltery Bay. These  r#re early warning signs that high  density coastal strip developments and inadequate run-off  precautions are threatening our  cpastline.  \fi[:Right now.mo$t of our coast  _.,has clean water, clean shellfish  and lots of room, making it a  jgpod place to live and a good  place for tourism and controlled  ,jndustry. The Sunshine Coast's  ,#y-law controlling lot size to a  minimum of  10 acres in the  ,_ Hjardy Island area is a good one  $p help preserve the area and  ptStill allow for development. A  fJarge number of 150;foot water-  iaVont   lots   concentrating   the  ijjiopulation all along the prime  .^lellfish   areas   and   sheltered  i:rtyaters of Hardy Island would  i$e   shortsighted,   unnecessary,  jkjetrimental to the environment  |jjnd would destroy the character  $0f the area.  $.'The area now produces approximately 100,000 pounds of  ��clams annually and provides  Idnany local people an income.  fish farms controlled as to size  nd density, some industry and  ^viculture would or could be  good for the area and the province in general, but the massive  fish farm planned by Hardy  Island Sea Farms combined  with the proposed concentrated  coastal strip development can  only bring problems, conflicts,  pollution and the eventual contamination of the shellfish.  That this proposal by Hardy  Island Sea Farms to subdivide  as planned is "the highest and  best use of the land" (a quote  from one of their principles) is  the opinion of a real estate  developer and not a fact. The  fact is that dense coastal population, very large fish farms,  industry and commercial sites  are not compatible with clean  water, safe shellfish and an  unstressed envriornment.  It would be shortsighted and  unfair of the regional board to  approve of a by-law change  now that would allow a single,  new-to-the-area developer to  create another coastal strip  development and facilitate the  development of a huge fish  farm in a rural area where there  is no community plan or settlement plan, no by-law procedure  in place, where too much is left  to verbal statement of intent  and promises, and where there  is a new industry developing on  a massive scale with no controls, either from the industry  itself or the government.  It is too early for the regional  board to change by-laws to encourage and accommodate such  huge projects as this; there is  too little known about large  scale fish farms.

Dickson, who lives on  Shoal Lookout, writes that he  and his wife have been subjected to "three consecutive  nights of outrageous and illegal  activity" and he goes on to  make some recommendations  to council.  He suggests that a curfew be  imposed frorn 10 p.m. to 8 aim.  daily; that random night patrols  be implemented by the RCMP  and the town's by-law enforcement officer; that speed bumps  be installed at the two entrances  to Georgia Park and that  lighting be installed in the park  to act "as a deterrent to the  predators who engage in their  nefarious activities under cover  of darkness."

The Mayor, Diane Strom,  said that she had been up to talk  with the RCMP who had informed her that this had been a  very quiet summer compared to  most.  "This is" a seasonal problem,  most of which is not just bur  own residents but those from  out of town as well.  "Random checks have been  done at all beaches and some  charges have been laid. A road  block set up at Secret Beach was  most successful," Strom told  the council. "All we can do is  look into getting a noise by-law  but that is not always the answer." .,'"':  The town of Gibsons has had  a noise by-law on its books since  1980 with a further amendment  made in 1982 but there has been  only one successful prosecution  for violations.  Maxwell suggested that the  by-law be reviewed and Peterson supported him in this move.  He also suggested that a letter  be written to Dickson telling  him that the matter had been  taken into advisment and that a  solution will be sought before  the next summer season.  .

This man has devoted  many hours of his time for the  community at little or no cost.  Thank you Rob.  COMPLIMENTS  Someone overheard a compliment to "whoever kept the  outdoor sanitation facilities"  clean in Davis Bay. A tip of the  hat to Judy LeNeve who did the  clean-ups and made Davis Bay a  nicer place to visit.  SCHOOL NEWS  Bob Wetmore, principal of  Davis Bay Elementary School,  gave the timetable for this  month. There is a meeting of  the Parents' Advisory Group,  October 21, 7:30 p.m. at the  school.  October 24 is an non-  instructional day. Then on the  October .31 the usual  Hallowe'en Festivities take  place at 7:30 p.m. in the gymn.  Fun time for all.  Sometime this month, Grades  1 to 7 will be taken to Sechelt to  watch the Green Thumb Players  of Vancouver perform Night  Light. The story line concerns  fears shared by a 10 year old  boy and a seven year old girl.  CANCER UNIT MEETS  The Annual meeting of the  Sunshine Coast Cancer Unit is  on October 20, 2 p.m. in St.  Hilda's Anglican' Church Hall.  There is a nutritionist coming  from Vancouver to talk on diet  and cancer. At that time you  may be able to purchase a  Cancer Cookbook for. $7.  This is an attempt* .at cancer  prevention through diet. The  book is being sold across  Canada. If diet will help prevent  this dread disease perhaps we  should all have a book.  IMPS ON THE LOOSE  There has been a rash of silly  doorbell ringing and sale sign  removals in this area lately.

The inventories are being  gathered by sub-committees,  one of which is assessing the accommodations, hospitality,  recreation, events and attractions here on the Coast and the  other is identifying the market  -those who come here; what  they do when they get here and  where they come from.  These things are vital to the  drawing up of a comprehensive  strategy to attract the tourist  trade, White explained.

Alderman Bob Maxwell from  Gibsons pointed to the retirement industry here, and said  that the needs of retirees must  be looked to if plans were to be  made which may affect their  lifestyles.  John Burnside, who  represents the Gibsons and  District Chamber of Commerce  agreed and pointed to Pioneer  Park as an example of co-operation between the tourist trade  and the needs of the residents.  Also raised at the meeting  was the issue of press releases  and coverage. Complaints had  been made to the B.C. Press/  Council by a Tourism Association employee about the practice of reporting on the committee from the' minutes, carried  out by Burnside. Several  members of the committee expressed themselves willing to  send letters to the Council saying that the releases were true  and accurate transcriptions of  the minutes.  Elected  to meet  An initiative from Mayor  Bud Koch of Sechelt has  resulted in a meeting being called between elected officials  from both municipalities and  the regional district with Deputy  Minister of Municipal Affairs,  Chris Woodward, on October  14.  Several items were tabled at  last .week's Sechelt ^ Council  meeting, until after this date. As  well, a delegation from the  Community Development Office and the Economic Development Commission was put off  until later in the month.  One of the items to be postponed is the preparation of a  joint Economic Strategy 'as an  appendix for acceptance and inclusion in the Vancouver Island  Regional Economic Strategy  Plan.' This- will be undertaken  in co-operation with the Gibsons Economic Strategy Committee, the regional district  Economic Strategy Cbm.miss-  sion, as well as the Powell River  Economic Commission.  This was to include the  Sechelt' Economic Strategy  Commission, as stated in a motion made on September 24 by  Alderman Langdon. However,  it was pointed out at Council  that there is in fact no such  group in existence.

For many years Gladys and  her husband lived on the Skeena  and later for a shorter time on  the Nass River where he was  employed in the fish canneries,  and when he died in 1955  Gladys turned to teaching  school again. , After summer  courses to update her teaching  .was honoured by the Town as  one of the pioneers during the  Nelson Island for two years and  at Irvine's Landing for one.  In 1958 she joined the staff of  Gibsons Elementary where she  continued teaching until she  retired in 1966. In 1978 she sold  her cottage on Burns Road and  went to live in the Salmon Arm  district near her son, Sam. "He  was the fifth generation of Armours to be called Sam,"  Gladys said.

The icefields  are an area a little more remote  than Gibsons - about two cents  more remote.  A B.C. relative of a Saskatchewan farmer scolded him for  planting a couple of dogwoods  in his windbreak. "You're not  supposed to have dogwoods,"  she said to him. "They're only  for B.C. because that's our  emblem." -  .v. .Where,prairie, highways .have  ii wide shoulder, slow drivers  usually pull over to it to let  other traffic overtake  -sometimes cars are three  abreast on the road.

The third week was at Aberdeen University where she  stayed at Hillhead Residence.  The topics were Scottish  Culture and Heritage.  The meals were good and  maid service is part of the program. The cost is average for  the International Elderhostels,  which is higher than North  America.  Alice Earle's great grandfather was the founder of Northern Co-operative Society in  Aberdeen and they were  celebrating their 125th anniversary, so Alice was dined and  wined handsomely as the great  grand daughter of the founder.

In  the past few years Timber Days  has been in danger of folding,  due to the problems of getting  enough people to work.

The last couple of weeks the  column has been chopped and  sooner than write a letter to the  editor of the Press let's put it"in  here. First off, the Variety  - Show for Cancer Research was  not cancelled as per headline of  my column of September 23 in  the Press.  It was put on hold as per the  Coast News release. There was  no mention made of the Variety  Show in the Press unfortunately-  I try to keep the membership  informed on most of our activities but I have no control  over the editor's felt pe,n. One  stroke eliminates vital information sometimes. Let's hope our  800 odd members will get the  whole story as written from now  on.  We have had a donation to  our building fund by John  Dayton of a ticket for two for  an eight-day return trip to  Reno, leaving November 1,  1986. The ticket is for sale.

' ���' -  Fund-raising  for the blind  Some 28 people on the Sunshine Coast are blind and it is  these people who are helped by  the local chapter of the Canadian National Institute for the  Blind. This week the CNIB is  doing a fund-raising drive in the  Gibsons area and volunteers are  needed to help canvass and to  man the displays in Sunnycrest  Mall, CNIB worker Don Andow told the Coast News last  week.  "We only opened our drive  last Tuesday," he said," "but  already we have collected about  $800! And this is money that  goes straight back into the community. We spend it here, we  don't send it away."  Two people a day are registered as being blind in the province of B.C. Andow added.  "What's sad is that nearly 50  per cent of those cases could be  prevented by early detection."  The CNIB is a private, nonprofit agency, founded in 1918  to help blind people rebuild  their lives after their vision loss.  The CNIB also helps to prevent  blindness through education,  medical care and research.  Anyone who is interested in  giving perhaps two hours of  time within the next week or  two should call Don Andow at  886-7184 for more information  and to register as a volunteer.  /,!  Coast News, October 6,1986  Gibs  Publ  oils  "We are vitally interested in  - this. And as to funding, when  the time comes, we'll be able.to  provide space to build (cabins)  and supply equipment that  might be needed. As well/there  may be some funding in  tourism," Mayor Koch " told  George Smith of. the  Tetrahedron Ski Club when it  ' made a presentation to Sechelt  Council last Wednesday.  Koch said he, along with the  Sechelt Chamber of Commerce,  had worked long and hard on a  similar proposal to open up the  back country above Gray Creek  to cross country and telemark-  - ing skiing. but that. the project  had run into obstacles which  Tetrahedron seemed to have  overcome.  The club wants to build four  warming cabins along the extensive trails which they intend to  clear from Tarinis Lake all the  way through the Mount Steele  area and beyond.  "This is a local project. We  want to improve it for ourselves  first and then we are sure that  Vancouver and other lower  mainland residents will want to  . come here to ski," Smith explained.  He told council that tele-  marking is the fastest growing  skiing in Canada today and that  ,the area in question has been  called the best cross country and  telemarking area anywhere in or  near the lower mainland. .-.'"'  Council went on record as  giving unanimous support to  the club's proposal and a letter  to that effect will be written for  the club to use as it develops its  project to the next stage. ���  Ho  ic  urs:  j     Tiii'titlay  , '���: yfyiiiwsday'y.

Rhythms off Life  Living with Mars  by Penny Fuller  Mars seems to have got  himself a bad reputation and  it's really not fair. Just because  every time he happens to be in  the neighbourhood, a lot of bar  room brawls break out. Just  because when he's passing by, a  few little international skirmishes flare up; Just because  whenever he enters a house  there is a noticeable increase in  the tension level - people start  bringing up the old "god of  war" business.  Now that's just circumstantial   evidence.   What   people  never bother to point out is that  without   Mars'   influence,  nobody would bother to hustle  j out of the way of speeding traf-  | fie, tell their boss to make his or  f her own coffee, or bother to  paint a great masterpiece. There  would probably be no survivors  from.    Nazi   concentration  camps.   And to be perfectly  blunt, the human race would  have died out  before it got  started because the sex drive  would have been nil.  Mars represents 'energy'  -pure and simple. Where it  stood when you were born, will  describe where your mental and  physical energy is easily accessible. It also indicates how you  handle anger.  Jt takes only two years for  Mars to travel around the sun.  As it moves through different  parts of our skies it puts a jolt  of energy into different areas of  our lives - sort of like a battery  boost. It also stimulates our survival instincts. Especially whferi  it either hits the place where the  sun was when we were born, or  forms certain angles to that  location.  On October 10 Mars moves  into Aquarius and it won't leave  until November 27. Its major  impact on any individual will  only last about two days, but  they can be days that really stir  up the bottom of the cesspool.  People born January 21 to  February 18, July 23 to August  23, October 24 to November 22,  and April 21 to May 21 will  have Mars forming a 'major  aspect' to their suns during this  time. That means you get the  battery boost to your ego or .  'sense of self.  Your impulse to assert  yourself will be strong and  could even turn pugnacious if  you've been storing up feelings  of. resentment.  You can handle these urges in  two ways. Knowing what's  coming, as soon as you start  feeling an overwhelming urge to  take a poke at somebody, you  could hide in bed for a couple of  days and tell everyone that you  have a very contagious flu.  That's an excellent way to  avoid rocking the boat and acquire an ulcer instead. It is not  what I would recommend.  There is a healthy use of any  planet's energies. The first thing  to do with this Mars transit is to  burn off a lot of physical  energy. Jog,"play basketball, do  push-ups - I don't care, just  burn up some of the excess  energy. Then, if you still feel  like taking a swing, identify  what exactly is making you  angry. Express that to the people concerned without attacking  their.egos. They may have Mars  active in their lives too!  Try to work out a creative  compromise that allows both  sides to maintain their sense of  self worth. This 'clearing the  air' process is Mars working .at  its best. It keeps us healthy.  Things may not be so clear  cut, however, for those of you  whose birthdays fall in the first  two weeks of the aforementioned times. You'll all be affected  before November 3. .At this time  you all have Pluto forming an  aspect to your suns as well as  Mars.  That probably sounds like  Greek. To put it in a nutshell,  you have two kinds of energies  affecting you at that time and it  can be a bad combination.  It is really important that you  handle this time constructively,  that you get the exercise and  clear the air without going for  the jugular. Because of the  Pluto influence, the repercussions from the confrontations  you have now, could have far  reaching affects.  For those of you who are  close to the people born in the  signs of Leo, Aquarius, Scorpio  Taurus, a word of caution. If  these loved ones seem to fly off  the handle for a few days in the  next couple of months, try to ignore the volume and hear the  content.  They may be exploding over  issues that need to be cleared  up. If you wait a couple of days  for them to cool down it is probably important to discuss  whatever was brought up, in a  calmer atmosphere.  Computer show  The Sunshine Coast Computer Show will take place  Saturday, October 11 at the  Sunnycrest Mall in Gibsons.  Staged by a group of local computer users, the show is being  presented so that local residents  may find out more about microcomputers and what people are  doing with them, at a convenient local site.  Several    of   the    latest  machines, including the Apple  Macintosh and the Atari ST  (and possibly the new Apple II  GS) will be on display, as well as  other   machines   currently  available and in use.  This is an excellent opportunity to meet fellow residents  who use computers on a regular  basis and who can show you  what you could do with a personal computer of your own.  If you have been considering  purchasing a computer for  home, business, or educational  use, or, if you already use a  machine but would simply like  to meet other users and gossip,  consider yourself invited to the  Sunshine Coast Computer  Show.

So...when my great provider went to  the store the other day and came home with a slab of cheese only to find  that I had been to the store the day before and had also bought a slab of  cheese I knew just what to do.

Gaining entry to  this prime show takes well over  half an hour but the wait is  more than worth it. The Roundhouse complex was designed by  several Czechoslovakia^ artists  and it is an imaginative  triumph.  The general theme of the  show is 'Inventions that didn't  quite make it' and the enterprising Czechs have assembled a  virtual cornucopia of outlandish  devices, the wistful brainchildren of many an optimistic  crackpot.  You enter the Roundhouse  via an almost empty room,  dominated by an enormous  simulated cog-wheel. The  room's other main feature is a  device like a winged bicycle,  suspended on a horizontal  cable, high above the floor.  Two men with crossed arms,  wearing World War One pilot's  gear, stand on a lofty platform.  Shortly, one of them mounts  the eccentric flying machine and  pedals it leisurely across the  room and back. We have just  seen weird invention number  one in action.  Now we proceed to a long  corridor called the Hall of Inventions and are treated to a virtual barrage of cockeyed devices. Each exhibit is accompanied by a near life-size statue  of its creator. Some of these artifacts are bizarre in the extreme, they include a literal  one-horsepower vehicle,  powered by a horse on a treadmill; a bicycle built for 12; an  outrageous underwater breathing device; a dirigible consisting  of many hot-air balloons lashed .  together and a host of other  totally off-the-wall Rube-  Gbldbergian contraptions that  never got much beyond the  drawing board.  We emerge from the Hall of  Inventions into the largest room  of all. This contains a couple of ���  other flying devices that actually  work. One of them resembles  nothing more than an airborne  rowing machine. As we wait to  enter a theatre constructed like a  giant boiler, another pilot activates the rowing machine over  our heads.  Inside the theatre, we are ,  shown a short film that highlights a number of crazy  vehicles and flying machines  that were actually, constructed. I  have seen some of this hilarious  footage before but much of it is  new to me. Most of the wild-  eyed zealots look to be several  cards short of ��t full deck as they  conduct their invariably-disastrous test runs.  The rest of the Roundhouse  exhibition consists of not-so-  loony devices that actually  worked. They include primitive  and cumbersome steam tractors; a very early automobile  that is only one step removed  from a horse-drawn coach;  several types of steam-driven  cars and an accurate recreation  of George Stephenson's pioneering locomotive, The Rocket.  Yvonne and I leave the  building well satisfied. The  Roundhouse has more than lived up to its advance publicity.  It is almost time for Our visit  to the Ramases Pavilion and we  plod back in that general direction. We are: broughtto a; halt  by the sound of wild drumming  and three of the city's '"'most  outlandish street clowns make  their appearance. They-consist  of a -stiltwalker in a benign  golden mask, a golden wig and  brilliant robes of black; and  gold; a limber creature dressed .  entirely in white with a drum  muri  Television  THURSDAY, OCTOBER fi$���� Find out the answers and more  7:00 PM i .. *~!3L with a look at Toastmasters  .

We   have  encountered   the  Drum Mother before at other  such   gatherings   but   this  remarkable   clown   (the   word  fails to do these amazing performers justice), never fails to  amaze us. The utterly strange  Drum Mother almost has to be  seen   to   be  believed   or   appreciated. She glides over the  ground like a ghost in a huge  red hoop skirt, beating expertly  on the two small drums that are  sewn   into   the   front   of  the  costume.   Her   flesh-coloured  mask wears an odd, fixed smile.  She is like some bizarre cross  between the Red Queen in Alice  in Wonderland and the vaguely-  sinister   woman   on   the   Old  Dutch Cleanser cans - but that  doesn't    quite   describe   her  either.  The  Drum  Mother  is  simply unique.  The street clowns entertain us  briefly before drifting away in  the direction of the exit. A non-  costumed man who works with  the clowns informs the crowd  that the Drum Mother and her  curious cohorts will be putting  on a full-length performance  later that evening.

Eight very different potters  are represented using fragile  porcelain, sturdy stoneware,  and warm earthenware.  The whimsical painted platters of Jerry McBride show both  her love ol" comedy and depth  of feeling. Bold, brilliant colours project her wish for a  bathing suit into an exciting wall  piece.

Seamounl  Car Wash iGihsonsl. Big Mac's (Sechelt)  tempt one to touch. Generous  jugs and bowls invite the  gourmet in us all.  Jeannie Mah, on the other  hand, works in paper thin sheets  of porcelain. Her hand built  pieces give an illusion of function but would never be used.  Subtle colours accentuated with  dots give a merry feeling to the  work.  Delicate pink pastels act as a  counterpoint to the over large  cup and saucer, cream and  sugar of Sam Kwan.  John Reeve's versatility is  portrayed in screaming turquoise and yellow, deep rich  temmoku stoneware, and  delicate porcelain.  Earthenware, a very warm  medium, is represented by Dar-  cy  Margesson's strong forms.  Lighthearted decoration gives a  happy-go-lucky feeling to these  plates and cups.  The rich kiss of the wood  burning kiln's fly ash as glaze  make Chris Guiffrida's voluptuous stoneware vessels very exciting.  Catherine Fraser's unusual lily pad plates and punctuation  cups are interesting but the  depth of the glaze surface gives  a feeling of incompletion. Her  fish hooks are comical and  refreshing.  . This show is well worth see-  ing^with its cross section of pottery styles and use of clays.

During that time there have been many changes at Andy's, but never in the warm and personable greeting  bestowed by the proprietor or his wife and never the quality of the fare.  Last week we decided on Andy's after a long day's  work. We were hungry and tired, ready to relax and enjoy  something tasty. Neither one of us was disappointed. My  companion's choice was seafood - the casserole - and I  decided on a sirloin steak cubed in Hollandaise sauce.  The seafood casserole comprises plenty of meaty crab,  shrimps, scallops and lobster, all poached in a delightful  sauce and served, very hot, with fluffy rice (potato if you  wish), vegetables fresh from the garden (green beans this  night) and a salad to begin. My companion was delighted  with the look and the taste.  My steak was done perfectly - rare, just as I had asked.  Served in a creamy sauce with mushrooms and herbs, it  was not only filling, but satisfying in taste as well. I particularly like the fresh vegetables - too often restaurants  fail to take advantage of the harvest time produce and rely  on only frozen to accompany the main course.  We sat for a while to talk about the day's work and then  decided that dessert would be in order. The cheese cake,  with cherry topping, was splendid; the Kahlua parfait was  scrumptious.  There we were - well fed and relaxed in the cosy atmosphere, and all for not much more than $30. It's not a  cheap night out, but you can do that at Andy's too. They  have a wide pizza menu, with prices most can afford. The  appetizers are generous too, and sometimes hit the spot if  you don't want something heavier.  It's nice to know that some things don't change. I'm  glad that Andy's is one of them.  DRIVE INTAKE OUT  Chicken Shack - Cowrie St., Sechelt  -885-7414.

In  particular, the four to nine year  olds are not getting the early  start in hockey that makes learning the. game much J_a_ier.  Hockey has the dilemma that1 it  is played in'an: Wea:?!ifhat  .,: operates for a specified period  of tlie-yearv and to play hocpy  effectively you must learn to  skate. v ��� .  As a small association, we are  proud of the system we have  developed for our young  players. We have received accolades from the UBC instuc-  tors for the skills and development of our young players, and  our success at tournaments and  inter-association competition is  testimony to our program; but  our success hinges on having  new players entering hockey.  We have competent,  dedicated coaches volunteering  their time, and very few associations can boast the convenient  and plentiful ice times available  on the coast.  Enrolling your child in  hockey gives him or her the opportunity to discover the  world's fastest team sport  -Canada's Number One sport.

But  pretty soon around October 15  we, the volunteers of the Gibsons Garden Club, (and any  other interested people), will  change the beds for colourful  spring flowering bulbs. Call  886-9527 if you wish to help.  Ruth Stout says, "Any time  of the year you can mulch your  garden eight inches thick,, this is  the key to the success of it."  If your soil, needs lime to  sweeten, it can be put on the  soil, and covered with mulch, or  on top of the mulch* providing  you add it at a time of year  when you can reasonably expect  rain to wash it through the  mulched spoiled hay etc. by the  time the soil should have it.  Frosts are possible before the  end of the month, so plants  which may have to be taken into  the green house or basement,  are chrysanthemums, fuchsias,  heliotropes and pelargoniums,  cyclamen and Christmas cactus.  If you have a greenhouse it's  time to remove plants, temporarily, to wash down glass  and sterilize if possible. Insert  plastic liner to conserve heat  and then replace plants.  kTheWorld.P/aj_|  Hockey with  Teachers call  education focus  The Sunshine Coast  Teachers' Association, as part  of a province-wide campaign of  the B.C. Teachers' Federation,  has responded to the provincial  election call with a campaign of  their own.  This 'Campaign for Change'  will endeavour to focus public  attention on the devastating  neglect, bf public education by  the current provincial government over the past four years.  While the campaign will not  promote any single candidate, it  will promote the need for fundamental change in the provincial government's policies on  education.  Voters will be urged to ask  their candidates about education issues, and to vote for the  party which is most willing to  invest in the future of this province through a strong education system.

Those..traps  have to be heavy metal and  don't have any springs. By the  time you trap the bear and  transport him 40 miles or more,  as you have to if he isn't to beat  you back home again, he's been  bruised and battered. Not only  that, by the time you get there  likely as not he's torn out his  claws because he's tried all the  while to get out of the cage.  "And when he gets there if  he's not the biggest bear in the  territory he'll either be killed or  injured by the bigger bear or  chased out."  What can people do to protect themselves?  "People should be aware that  the most effective contribution  they can make is not to encourage permanent occupancy,  not to put food out.  "People leave out compost,  stinky garbage, dirty barbecues,  everything the. bear likes and is  attracted to. They would help  themselves and the bears by not  doing so.  "We should remember that  bears don't have designs on  humans. They like to be close to  us but we can't co-exist in close  quarters.  "It's sure as heck not the  bears' fault."  Complaints come in thick  and fast, Stephen said. Last  Monday the Gibsons RCMP  had more than 50 calls but most  of them are not serious.

THANKSGIVING  Thanksgiving weekend .is  coming up so let's just be  thankful and give thanks.  Leisure pool seen focus  of recreation development  The dinner meeting of the  Sechelt and District Chamber of  Commerce held on September  23 heard an interesting presentation from Vic Davies of the  design team of Davies and  Smith of Victoria on the subject  of the latest thinking on the  design of recreational complexes.  The award, winning firm has  designed what Davies calls  'Leisure Pools' in Maple Ridge  and Sparwood, and Grand.  Forks and has recently redesigned the Powell River swimming  pool'.  "The concept is to bring a  holiday atmosphere to the standard municipal swimming  pool," Davies told the Chamber  members.  Designed in varied shapes,  with poolside cafeterias for both  swimmers and the viewing  public, with underwater lighting, saunas, fountains and  waterfalls, Davies said that the  design pool concept had become  the catalyst where it had been  implemented in revitalizing  town centres.  The popularity of the 'leisure  pools' made possible, said  Davies, associated recreational  and private enterprise around  the core of the pool.  "The secret of success is to  have the leisure pool centrally  located near an existing shopping centre," said Davies. He  told the chamber that if Sechelt  were interested in such a development it could start relatively  small and add municipal  facilities as needed along with  private development nearby.  Davies was invited to address.  the chamber by Bill and Ka>  Bailey, owners of Workweai  World and Blackberries, whe  were familiar with his work  from their travels through the  province.  He noted that where standard  pools had been converted to the  leisure pool concept there \va_  hard evidence that the deficit involved . in running a pool wa.  greatly reduced.-  Pender People 'n'  Places  Salmon enhancement  in John Daly Park  by Joan Wilson, 883-9606  SALMON RUN " ~_.  One success story in conservation of our fisheries is the improvement of the salmon run in  Anderson Creek through  various projects over the years.  You can see fish battling their  way upstream at John Daly  Park about mid-October. The  park has easy access off Garden  Bay Road, where a sign marks  the turnoff, right at Frank  Roosen's. (You could also stop  off for some veggies while  you're there.)  Fisheries officers remind you  not to disturb the creek or the  fish during spawning. There's a  hefty fine for doing so; please  watch' your children carefully  and keep dogs on a leash or in  the car. A word of caution: certain other Harbour .denizens enjoy the run, too, and should you  startle a black bear from his  dinner, he'll be a little irate.  Watch.for bears, who are on-^  ly interested in fishing but don't  JiHe to be startled.

If  you do meet him, remember  that discretion is the better pari  of valour in dealing with bears.  Move quietly away, backwards  if you can, and he'll likely ignore you.  CANCER SOCIETY MEETS  The Sunshine Coast Unit of  the Canadian Cancer Society  will hold its annual meeting on  Monday, October 20, 2 p.m. at  St. Hilda's Church iri Sechelt.  Guest speaker is Karin Litzchi,  nutritionalist from the Cancer  Control Agency in Vancouver.  The theme of the meeting is diet  and nutrition; pamphlets and  the society's cookbook will be  available. Everyone is welcome.  FORE!  A new craze seems to be  sweeping the Harbour: golfing  fever. The symptoms include  constant monitoring of weather  reports, incessant polishing of  clubs, and a preoccupation with  handicaps, par, and the  mysteries of the double bogey.  The new Pender Harbour Golf  Course is certainly living up to  the hopes of all those who put  so much time and energy into its  development.

Cameron Fraser, Pastor  885-7488  ting of a public hearing dealing  with two rezoning applications  for Hardy Island.  This was a continuation of  the initial hearing, held on  September 2, which was adjourned to allow residents of  . nieghbouring islands to acquire  more information on the  development plan proposed by  Hardy Island Sea Farms.  During the interval, the company held an information  meeting in Powell River on  September 23.  As a result of concerns expressed at the previous sitting  and the information 'meetirig,  Del Brynelsen, speaking for  Hardy Island Sea Farms, told  the hearing that hislcompany  was willing to enter into two  restrictive covenants with the  regional board.  The first would be that no  residential lot would be less than  one acre, although the zoning  applied for would allow a  minumum size of one half acrt\  The second vvas that only one  ;';hi'aih-dw^(lihg^wduiid'!be'ai1l&\v1ed  on each parcel, rathet* thati 'the  two permitted. ,  Brynelsen also addressed  other concerns that had been  raised. Since the last hearing,  the company has made provisions in. Saltery Bay for a parking area and marina to service  the island, he told the meeting.  They arc also wilting to establish  and maintain a land fill dump  site on the island to handle the  waste produced by both  residents and the company.  Additionally, Brynelsen offered to submit a building  scheme which would control the  exterior appearances 'of all  the esthetic quality of the development.  Regarding the zoning of two  sites for a processing plant, he  stated that the company was a  processing.plant.-he stated that  the company was only interested in building one plant  but that they wanted to have the  flexibility of using either of the  designated lots, depending on  I   DEPENDABLE  ICHIMNEY CLEAN  Call now for  FREE  CHIMNEY  INSPECTION  886-8356  how development of the island  went.  He assured the panel that  there would be no discharge of  fish offal irito the ocean from  this plant, and that B.C.  Packers had already guaranteed  to buy everything of that nature  that they produced.  In conclusion, Brynelsen told  neighbouring island residents  that his company wanted to  maintain. a good relationship  with them. "Hopefully we will  be neighbours for a number of  years. We may even by united in  the future against the next  developer," he.said.  After the presentation from  Hardy Sea Farms, Bob Harris  and   John   Rich,   representing  concerned residents, presented  the panel with letters speaking  aginst the application, and requested   that   they   be   read.  Receiving no objections from  the   floor,   chairman   Gordon  Wilson agreed.  ���J j A'pproxfmately 35 letters were  ^reitd to the meetirig from land  owners in  the area, sbnie of  them   living   as   far  away  as  California and Oregon. While  some of the letters appeared to  be written on the basis of misinformation,    protesting   the  of a  hotel  and  700  dwellings,   others  raised issues that local residents  had also brought forth.  Three major concerns were  repeated by many of the letters  and people speaking at the hearing. The potential problem of  water pollution in Blind Bay as  a result of aquaculture sites was  emphasized. and the lack of  "natural'"tliis'liirig action in that  area.  Adequate wale supply for the  island and its future residents  was also questioned. Several  Nelson Island residents told the  hearing that this was already a  problem in their area.  Almost every per.on writing  or speaking against the application expressed concern at the inevitable disruption of-the tranquillity of the area if the promised development wen t fort h.  Sue Milligan, a local resident,  told the panel, "it's important  that the Regional Board look  beyond the 15 to 20 year range  into the implications of this  zoning 50 to 100 years from  now."  Another resident, Chris  Campbell, pointed out, "What  this board decides after tonight  will have ramifications on the  whole Coast."  building  residential  The public is invited to this  free seminar.

Welcome Aboard!  AND .  SAVEj  Editor:  On Wednesday, October 22  we are electing a provincial  government.  Now, before we cast our  ballot, is the time to reflect on  developments in the province  since the last election.  Social Credit was re-elected in  1983 on a platform of moderation and economic stability  -much like the present Social  Credit campaign. What followed however, was a government  led assault on social services,  education and health care.  The Solidarity Coalition was  formed to defend and help people affected by these government actions and to develop  social and economic alternatives.  Education  Editor:  With an election coming up,  now is a good time to put the  pressure on to get education on  the priority list. Our education  system is suffering financially  and that is impacting on our  children and on our. communities. A sound education is  essential to the intellectual  development and well-being of  a community.  And we are slipping, behind  severely in B.C. Canada's  average of 14 per cent of  students going on to post-secondary education is low for a  developed country. However,  B.C. has the shamefully low  average of 9.7 per acent - the  lowest in.Canada!-  The fact that the cost of attending university has tripled  over the past 10 years may have  something to do with this.  Government grants were eliminated in -. 1984. A student  finishes fourth year today with  an average indebtedness of  $17,000.  As Douglas Todd, Education  Reporter, for   the   Vancouver  Sun, states in the September 26  issue, "The federal government  provided B.C. with more than  93 per cent of the total amoiunt  it spent on universities and col-    lr,  leges in 1985-86, according to \ 10|  Monty Woodyard, a financial yvy  analyst with the secretaryyo��   ...>.  state,  who  is  responsible yfof    y;)  transfer  payments   for  health'  and post secondary education.."  We need a provincial government that sees education as a  High priority item and funds it  accordingly.

The fact is  though, that the private sector is  laying off people as it introduces new technology.  There will be no new jobs in  B.C. unless the government  steps in and undertakes job  creation projects.  Some of these should be:  - a provincially funded housing program,  - a massive reforestation program,  -. to rebuild urban infrastructures such as , roads, water  systems, sewers etc.,  - a salmonid enhancement  program,  - to diversify our production  and markets by building up a  whole range of diversified wood  products industries.  (II) Protecting Human Rights  and dignity by re-establishing:  . - the Rentalsman Office,  - child abuse teams,  - Human Rights Commission  and the Human Rights branch  and by ending legislated poverty  by raising welfare rates and the  minimum wage to at least the  official poverty line.  (III) Public Education and  Health Care - We consider  education and health care to be  a basic right and not a privilege  for the rich. The new government should:  - restore funding for Public  Education to a level that will  restore services and programs  lost during the restraint period,  ������-.-.:' restore grants for post  secondary  education,  colleges  and universities.  In health care the level of  funding, staff and services  should be restored to 1982  levels:  - user fees and medicare  premiums should be eliminated.  In Conclusion: with an annual government budget of $10  billion we are convinced that the  resources exist to undertake  these necessary initiatives in the  interest of the people of B.C.  We are convinced also that  the Social Credit Party, backed  by big business and ex-Liberals  and Conservatives, is not going  to change course to carry out  this kind of positive program.  The only alternative at this  time is to elect an NDP.govern-  ment.  We ask that people carefully  consider our suggestions before'  they vote on October 22.

To make it past these  problems you need good tires..  Sechelt RCMP and Highway  Patrol will be running  roadblocks in October and one  of the things they will be looking at is to see if your tires are  adequate. If your vehicle weighs  less than 5500 kilograms you  must have at least 1.5  milimetres of tread on your  summer tread or 3.5 milimetres  on your winter tread. Check  also to make sure your tires  have no cracks, cuts, bumps or  bulges that will affect their use.  If you're thinking of mounting your winter studded tires,  you can as of October 1 and you  can leave them on until April 30  next year. Check them for any  damage also.  Remember that a tire with little or no tread floats on any  debris on the highway causing  Legal  the driver to lose control. Check  (and replace now before you're  ice  of the  SECHELT RCMP  On September 29, at 4:05  p.m. a head-on collision between two vehicles occurred on  Beach Avenue near Flume  Road. Extensive damage to  both vehicles resulted. Sandra  Ann Thomas, a Roberts Creek  resident sustained cuts, abrasions and was hospitalized and  held overnight at St. Mary's  Hospital for observation. The  male operator of the offending  vehicle is being charged with  criminal code charges as a result  of this incident.

TWO LOCATIONS   sunshine coast highway Gibsons   wharf and dolphin sechelt  H-- i  Self- go ver nment  a spirit reborn  liWr'  It was when Chief Stanley  Dixon met with the then Minister  of Indian Affairs David Crombie  in November 1984 that the Sechelts' last long stretch in the  journey towards Bill C-93 and  self government really began.  "...I told him, under the In-,  dian Act you are my father. As  my father I ask you - let me go. I  want to have the same rights as  you do," Chief Dixon told  Crombie.  And on the next day Crombie  set up the 12 man transition  team that has stayed in place  since to help the Sechejts  develop and finally implement  the Bill, enabling legislation for  the Sechelt Indian Band.  On October 9, 1986 Bill C-93  will become law when Royal  wPrSfc._iffiatl6__^  tawa, thereby marking the end  of more than a hundred years  without independence. ^  It was in 1971 that the Sechelts made up^ their minds to  seek self government.  The then Minister of Indian  Affairs and Northern Development Jean Chretien had come  to Sechelt to open the Administration Offices. It was then that  he urged the Sechelts to go for  self-government. He told them  they'd taken the Indian Act as far  as it would go and that the only  way for them to grow would be  without it.  The Chief at that time, Henry  Paull, said: "It is now our policy  to seek better means of administering our affairs...Let it be  known that we want to do our  *rs6tvh*thfrig m*l!r\&rHMt&^W&*r'  the fight was on.  The Sechelts formed an alliance with the Musqueam,  Squamish and Kamploops  Bands to present a more effective front; the alliance met with  Ave successive Ministers of Indian. Affairs, as well as with  various Ministers of Justice.  At every turn the bureaucrats  and the process itself frustrated  them, until in the late 1970's  they broke with the Alliance and  went if alone. There were more  meetings with ministers and  bureaucrats and no more success than before.  Frustrated and impatient, in  1981 Teddy Dixon and the  Chief and Councillors went  before the Human Rights Commission and the brief they  ~cpresented'perhaps>su_f.s up. best _  what the Indian Act and the  Department of Indian Affairs  really meant to the Sechelt people.  "We have committed no  crimes...our one apparent offence is to be of indigenous  origin in a country where the  native people are a small minority. For this we have been imprisoned.  "Our jailers are the bureaucrats at the Department of Indian Affairs, our cell is the  Federal Indian Act, its bars  created from the legal interpreta-  tionis of the Act's provisions by  the Department of Justice lawyers. We have tried hard to escape but so many of these attempts have failed that we despair! How can we attain freedom  ' . U_* \___nddd & ��__-* ,*.���_.*. ��...���_��. *.r.*jr:T:Tct-.T.��.  The Commission listened to  the brief and in fact did make  representation to the federal  government on the Sechelts'  behalf but the years rolled by and  more Ministers of Indian Affairs  came and went.  And then came that fateful  meeting on a grey Vancouver  day in 1984 when the Sechelts'  words were finally listened to,  when a Minister of Indian Affairs  determined that he would fight  for the Sechelts and see their  battle through to the end.  The two years since have  been filled with progress and pitfalls, frustration and sometimes  jubilation. When all seemed  ready to go ahead, when it  seemed as though, at last, July  1986 would see enactment, the 2.

A simple matter of a referendum, asking the Band membership if it accepted the Constitution which accompanies-'Bill  093y:> \yas t then: sail ".that e stood  between the Band and Procla  mation. But here another snag  appeared. -    .  The Department of Indian Af- .  fairs   deemed   that,   for   the  referendum to pass, a positive  vote, from 50 per cent plus one  of the voters registered on the list  would be required.'This is in  contrast to most other elections  where 50 per "cent plus one of  those voting give a majority.  >The-> -.Sechelts' rtppk fj-up- - ihe-  challenge iwholehe'artedly, tan'd "i  on Saturday/September 20, the  vote   went  overwhelmingly  in  favour of the Constitution.

A heritag  The Sechelts heritage is carried by the Elders; in them  rest the legends from long ago days; in them the stories of  life before the white man, still live. It is the Elders who keep  the language and hold the keys to the past.  They have steadfastly believed in their people and have  kept faith in the concept that all men and women deserve  the right to design their own futures; they have looked forward to the day when the Sechelts would once again be  '. free.' '������������.  And now the Elders have seen the attainment of that goal  which, at times, seemed almost beyond reach. Now the  present generation of Sechelts has a new road to follow.  For them, this is the beginning of a new life, one in which  ., ���-      the Sechelts have the power to make their own decisions, to  I.^^yty<.iy*-y,*->,.,<^'^,>y?y''. :fy,bhyk\' <._������ ...yi.yyy-:^y'.y..'y.y<?.'.:---.' ���.'"._. ."<>���< <-vy*. vv. ��� ���_ .  l��MM "�� ��* mmMmmmm^ywwvm  I .'���_>.*��� y.._.W;(,.�� <Hk:.k.*-< *:. .itU... ^_;^ ;.  i;.^.yi;/_;:... <y.< <v ..., ..

In the early days the mode of  transport was the canoe, left; it was used, not only in  peaceful Inlet waters but on the outside as well. Fishing  has been a major source of income for the Sechelts; a  large fishing fleet operated from Trail Bay and fished the  Inlets; like Narrows, below, and much further afield.  Hunae-chin, Tsoh-nye, Kla-kal-en-to - places like these,  scattered as they are up and down the inlets and along the  coastline, were home to the Sechelts when the white man  first came. Many of today's Elders grew up in these communities and the memories of those earlier times often surface when there's time to sit with a coffee and talk.  "We were born and raised at Tsoh-Nye. You're free  there -you can do anything that you want and everybody's  happy. You come out to Sechelt and you get a different  feeling...We three'here, she's Hunae-Chin, we're Tsoh-  Nye - we'd go up there and have a lot of fun, fishing, digging clams. It's very hard for us to come into a different  place. I've always wanted to go back.  "The kids'd cry when it was time to get on the boat to  come''dowri!.'.Beca'uie"ybii'gef attached to the place.  Everything's nice there. You get up in the morning - the  water at Deserted Bay, it's clear-glass."  "Everything is so~ beautiful, even when it's thundering  and lightning - even if we did have to run inside!"  "...And you can feel your ancestors up there."  "Yes - you can feel your ancestors sitting up there, with  you. -   : y  "The Bella Bella boys, when they camped at Pender  Island -they were there at a little island on their way to Expo - Mr. Brown felt it that there was somebody there to  welcome them...they all felt the same thing, like  somebody was watching over them;"  "Most of us were kind of shocked when we first came  down here -to different ways of living.. .1 ran down to my  Granny's on the first day we were here...long time ago  now."  Life in Sechelt was hard. For many of the children it was  a complete change in their way of life and a separation  from their families. As well, the children who came to the  Residential School, run by the Catholic Church, were forbidden to speak their own language, under threat of  punishment.  It was the Fathers of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate  who first brought education to the Sechelts. In 1860 two  missionaries arrived on the Sechelt peninsula but were  driven away by the Indians who "knew what white men  are" but two years later the band changed its mind and  within a decade all the Sechelts had been converted to  Catholicism.  This was a time of great social upheaval; the fur trade  had brought with it, not only riches, modest as they may  be by today's standards, but also disease in epidemic proportions and other problems that arise when two cultures,  so different from each other, collide.  But by 1890 a splendid church had been built on the  waterfront at Trail Bay. More than 2000 Indians attended  the dedication ceremony of the new structure which cost,  according to a newspaper report of the time, $6000.

Captain  Joe, who was Johnny Joe's father, worked for  Bloomfield Logging at Deserted Bay.

The Residential School for many. .  years was the central point in the lives  of-young Sechelt Indians. Most of  today's Elders attended the school. In  the school picture, left, axe many  familiar faces, including Clarence Joe  '.'and Mary Jane Jackson.  Looking back  Continued from page 6  The Church and the Residential School played a central  role in Sechelt life for many years but now, with self  government, and a growing feeling of self-esteem and  pride, other aspects of the Sechelt culture, long dormant,  are being revived.  ' At the workshop close to the Band Offices the sounds of  the wood carver's tools ring out each day. There has been  a renewed interest in canoe-building and -racing - teams of  young men and women are training and canoes; both  Jong 11-man craft and smaller, two-man,racing canoes,  are being carved at the workshop. Canoes were once the  only mode of transport for the Sechelts and this present  revival is a new look at the old ways.  Weaving too has always been a part of Sechelt culture.  Today, perhaps the best known and well loved artisan on  Sechelt lands is Mary Jane Jackson. Since she first came  ��� to Sechelt in her early years, Mary has been a weaver. At  almost 80, she is still taking to the forest paths, with her  grandchildren, to look for the cedar, roots she needs to  create her works of art.  The Sechelts were fishermen too. At once time, and not  too long ago, there were some 60 fishing boats, operating  out of Sechelt and Elders like Ben Joe would like to see  more of the young people try it again. The salmon is a major part of the culture, as it is for most coastal Indians, and  fishing, or working in the canneries scattered tip and down  the West coast was, for a long time, one of the most important sources of income for the Sechelt people.'  Logging too, has seen an invaluable contribution from  the Sechelts. When the white riian first came from Vancouver,, looking for timber to.build his-city, it was the  Sechelt who could show the way. The logging companies  upon whose industry much of the present Sunshine Coast  was built, employed many Sechelts through the years and  the practice continues today.  t   \  ���Vi  The tradition of weaving is an  important part of Sechelt culture.  Mrs. Ellen Paull, left, born Mary Ellen  Jeffries, was the daughter of William  Jeffries and his wife Tghagaute. Ellen  was also known as Hopalitch, the  weaver. She was born on June 17,  1884 and died in February, 1968.  Married to Dan Paull, Ellen was the  mother of Chief Reggie Paull, Chief  Henry Paull and Mrs. Sarah Silvey,  as well as son Willie, who died young. ,j?a. .T��'����j?^jff^v_ki*,i��iJ^jk,_yjr_fjp>?*���_?j.

This was  the day of the last referendum under the Indian  Act. This was the day that 193 Sechelts said "Yes"  to their Constitution - 193 of the 201 who voted  -201 out of a possible 220 voters, and not a single  spoiled ballot among them. Only eight votes were  counted .against the document which represents  the way in which the Sechelts' new self government will be conducted.  The day had been crisp and clear as mid-September days can be in Sechelt. That night at the  Community Hall, after the polls had closed and the  ballots had been tallied, emotions ran high; there  were cheers as a jubilant Chief Dixon hailed the  crowd with a broad smile.  "The future of the Sechelt Indian Band is in our  own hands! The future is ours!" he told them.  A talking stick, carved by Frankie Dixon, was  presented to the Chief and Councillors in celebration. The stick contains four wooden beads to  make the rattle: "We need a talking.stick with noise  now that we have our self government!"  The Department of Indian Affairs, represented  by Danyl Denomy and Alan Broughton, supervised the voting; Carl Dixon counted the votes for the  Sechelts and when it was all done the import of  what had happenned was clear.  The Sechelts had come out in force and cast a .  vote that made no bones about it - "we want our  Constitution, we want Bill C-93. we want our  freedom^'. - -.. ���_._.;.--_,_..  ���Jj^L**^        y  BE  v* *"_  h9__t  . -     lA    "      '-       ,!?',*    - - -  . f,"        '* if, - .'   -  Top left: A jubilant chief;  bottom left: Counting the ballots;  top right: Voting day;  centre right: Band lawyer Graham Allen, left,  and Financial Advisor Gordon' Anderson;  bottom right: The talking stick.  -._��� _. _. *�������*.** j.i^^*fl.' *.*-_/  ���-_-___-._._-_���_,__, _. xa jt i &s*'��'. ij-fr-* * * __���* fr #~. *��� _��� *_��:��.-*-9-#.H^.ftt*.T^f_r.^rrr.^^?5KT'i^^��j^^j^y,,ra-ff��!
