The  EDC received the final project  report titled 'Working Together  for Jobs and Economic  Development' at last week's  meeting.  The report included an  analysis of the weaknesses  which are hampering economic  development in this area. These  were broken down into three  categories: growing pains, lack  of clear direction, and bashing.  The latter problem was summed  up, "If the time and energy  spent on bashing each other  were channelled into more constructive activity, the region's  economy would benefit. Indeed, the region is in danger of  having many groups, including  its volunteer community, turn  their backs at the 'pugilistic  parochialism' that now  occurs."  There were ten specific  regional services which the  report recommended that the  EDC assume. These included:  coordinator, to ensure that  groups are aware of each  other's goals and activities;  marketing support; lobbyist;  project director, especially on  major initiatives that affect the  economy of the region; data  distributor; policy advisor; look  out post and transmitter, to ad'  vise local governments Oft  federal programs that might be'  useful; strategic support; expediter, to speed up decision  processes which affect economic development, and consultant.  Maurice Egan, Commission  Chairman, stated that all the  services were either being of*  fered by the EDC now, or  should be.  The major changes which the  commission recommended to  the report dealt with the future  structure of the EDC. While  they agreed with the idea that  Sechelt and Gibsons councils  and the regional board should  each appoint one member, they  reduced the number of repre-.  sentatives from the chambers of  commerce from one each to one  only, that both agreed on.  In addition, they recommended that five members at  large be appointed by a joint  decision of the mayors of  Sechelt and Gibsons and the  chairman of the regional  district. Each of these would  represent one of five different  aspects of the region: industry,  business, arts, environment,  and a geographic balance.

Was the most asked question at  the public meeting held last  Wednesday evening at the  Gibsons Legion Hall.  Speakers included Jean Swan-  son, co-ordinator of a coalition of anti-poverty groups,  Jack Campbell of the  BCEGU, and local resident  Eric Inglis. The meeting was  chaired by Sheila Kitson.  Swanson was the first to  speak. She is familiar with  how private hospitals can be.  Originally an American  citizen, she told the story of attempting to have her baby  treated for meningitis. "There  was a window with a grate on  it," she said. The nurse spoke  to her through this window  and closed it on her when it  was ascertained that she did  not have sufficient cash to pay  k��" services. She stated she  eventually gained entry to the  hospital but no doctor saw to  the infant. The baby died.  "I wish every Canadian  could see this issue from both  sides because if we could we  would fight a little harder,"  said Swanson, "Vander Zalm  is underfunding existing  hospitals to create the demand  for private hospitals.  "People have been laid off  and wages have gone down,"  she continued, "You know  what happens if your wages  are low?...You are poor! You  won't be able to buy a car or  go to a restaurant."  As far as free trade goes,  Swanson stated, "US corporations can cross the border into  Canada and have the right to  bid on the areas being privatized. US corporations will get  the same subsidies as Canadian corporations.  "I have a theory on  privatization and free trade,"  said Swanson, "It is an attempt to drive out democracy  in the economy and replace it  with market forces, a sort of  dictatorship of the economy.  The latest god is the market.  The market should determine  everything."  The only individual who  could have defended privatization or at least answered the  concerns of the public was the  duly elected MLA Harold  Long but he was not there.  "Would it have made any  difference if we had elected a  stray yellow dog?" quipped  one conservatively dressed  retired gentleman.  Local resident and a past  Legion president Doug Dixon  showed the Coast News a clipping of a newspaper advertisement entitled, 'An Invitation  to Apply for the Purchase of  Nine B.C. Forest Service Nurseries.' "I don't want our  forests owned by an  American," he stated.  One man stood up and said  he was not ashamed of his  union wage, "I make $17 an  hour and I spend $17 an  hour." He went on to point  out that if his income was cut  his spending would also be  cut.  A local bank manager stood  up and voiced concern over  Long's absence. "When you  only hear one side of an argument it is very persuasive. I  was hoping Harold Long  would be hese." And then he  noted, "He was hard to find  when the all candidates  meetings were held."  Please turn to page 7  A cougar attacked a dog last  week in the Brooks Road area  of Halfmoon Bay. The dog, a  German Shepherd-Doberman  cross, died the next day as a  result of the wounds.  Maureen Darragh, owner of  the dog, reported that the attack took place around midnight, close to her home, in a  brightly-lit area.  "It was spooky," said Darragh, "He wasn't scared. He  just stood and looked at me  for a few minutes, then slowly  walked away."  Darragh said that the  animal was huge. "The fang  marks on the dog's head were,  almost nine inches apart."  This incident is one of the  more serious in a long series of "  cougar sightings and animal  attacks. It is still not known  how many cougars are in the  area.  It may well be that Only OftC  animal is being seen in several  places. Residents are beginning to become worried about  their   children,   but   Wildlife  Conservation   Officer   Jamie;  Stephen stresses that cougars,  though frightening, have hard- V  Iy ever been known to attack ���  human beings.  A flocd of ideas  from decentralization  The establishment  of eight  development   regions   already  has started a flood of innovative  ;". ideas, says Provincial Secretary  ��� Ehvood   Veitch,    Minister   of  State for the Mainland/South-  . west Region.  Speaking at the British Columbia Enterprise Centre to a  group   of   250   people   from  throughout the region, Veitch  said regionalization represents a  -fundamental change in the pro-  ���'cess of government.  ���'.    "The onus has shifted to the  ^government to come to you for  .innovative ideas and  a more  local approach to development.  ': Your ideas automatically will be  considered workable unless proven otherwise.  "Where there is a conflict  between benefits to the people  of this region in the form of  jobs or services on one hand  and province-wide policies and  regulations on the other, the  onus is on the latter to prove  why it should prevail," he said.  The minister said he will soon  be naming members of two  working committees, one to  deal with economic issues, the  other with services. The first  task of these two groups will be  to draw up a complete inventory  of human, economic and industrial resources in the region.  The minister said he will  travel throughout the region  with his two parliamentary  secretaries over the next couple  of months to meet with local officials and community leaders  and listen to public submissions.  "When I go to cabinet with a  plan or proposal it will be the  result of an extensive canvassing  of this region," he said.  In preparing his plan for the  Mainland/Southwest Region,  Veitch said he will make full use  of the data and the development  strategies that have been put  together already by municipalities and regional districts,  especially the GVRD.  Fifteen people from the Sunshine Coast attended the information meeting,  to  find out  __^__iiiiSi3l  how the minister's plans will affect this area. Gibsons Mayor  Diane Strom's reaction to the  meeting was neutral. She told  the Coast News in an interview  the next day, "It was basically  public relations leading up to  Veitch's tour of local municipalities expected some time in  December."  Regional District Vice-  Chairman Peggy Connor was  somewhat more enthusiastic,  saying that she felt the Sunshine:  Coast was, perhaps, better  prepared to take advantage of  the decentralization program  than others in Region 2.  "We have so many things  that are just on the verge of being developed. We're ready for  this. We have the kiln study, the  library study, and the foreshore  study. They're all ready to be  acted on."  Sechelt's Mayor Bud Koch  was also optimistic, saying that  he feels, "People are going to  get out of this what they put into it."  7?     -  �����s* =   Jean Swanson speaks to over 150 persons at the public meeting on Privatization held in the Gibsons  Legion Hall last Wednesday (L to R: Eric Inglis, Sheila Kitson, Jack Campbell, Jean Swanson.

Coast News, November 30,1987  Maureen's role  There was CBC open-line discussion lately about the  role that is proper for political wives to play in the affairs  of the nation. Under normal circumstances it is not a subject we would cheerfully address? believing that the role of  the political wife is likely to be as unique as the relationship  in which she is a partner.  The contribution of External Affairs Minister Joe  Clark's wife Maureen McTeer to international affairs  makes it relatively easy to indicate what the role of a  political wife should not be.  At a meeting between Clark and some Canadian aid  workers in Nicaragua, McTeer, who was for some reason  present, is reported to have told the aid workers that they  should use their influence to prevent Nicaraguan President  Ortega from criticising President Reagan.  Those Canadians who have been living and working in  Nicaragua and who have grown weary and sad attending  the funerals of Nicaraguan friends were reported furious  at McTeer's superficial intervention.  She, along with the bulk of her countrymen, should  walk a mile in Nicaraguan moccasins before venturing to  offer comment. Here is a tiny, impoverished country  which suffered for years under the yoke of brutal dictatorship, a dictatorship supported by the United States until it  seemed about to fall.  It has now an elected government but one of which  Ronald Reagan does not approve. He has slapped a trade  embargo against the country and spent millions arming  some desperate residue of the old regime who seek to overturn the government by force.  Still soft-pedalled in the Iran-Contra scandal, is the role  played by the drug trade in arming the Contras. Planes  that flew down weapons often brought back cocaine with  some of the profits therefrom going to the Contras.  If Ms McTeer would imagine all this happening to  Canada she would surely not wonder that the country's  leader had criticisms for the perpetrator. If her international observations are to be this vacuous she would be  better to say nothing, or perhaps stay home.  Peggy preferred  It is apparent that the outgoing regional board chairman  wants the mantle and the gavel to be inherited by Director  Brett McGillivray, rather than Vice-Chairman Peggy Connor.  Gurney is wrong. In recent disputes McGillivray may  have pleased Gurney with his unthinking loyalty to the  chair but he has certainly not endeared himself to the  municipalities who have usually been the victims of  Gurney's adroit manoeuvrings.  The selection of McGillivray can only prolong the  destructive us and them pattern which has bedevilled the  regional board under Gurney. The tiresome pattern will  continue unless the fair-minded Director Connor is chosen  by her fellow directors to be chairman.  5 YEARS AGO  A large and appreciative audience was in attendance  at the Sechelt Arts Centre for the readings by Canadian  author W.P. Kinsella. While paying tribute to his audience as one of the most appreciative he had encountered, he read from his work entitled 'Shoeless Joe'.  For this work Kinsella became the first Canadian to win  the Houghton-Mifflin Literary Award.  10 YEARS AGO  Outgoing regional director from Area A, Jack Paterson,  voiced his concern last week that there should be sufficient consultation with the public before B.C. Hydro puts  the Cheekye-Dunsmuir Hydro line to Cape Cockburn.  15 YEARS AGO  School Trustee Bernard Milligan resigned from the  School Board at Thursday's meeting last week, over the  refusal of the Department of Education to appoint Don  Head to fill the vacancy left by the resignation of Chairman Sheila Kitson last June.  20 YEARS AGO  More than 100 people took part in the School District's  Education Meeting Monday night at Elphinstone. The  subject of the meeting was the examination of possible  causes of student drop-outs, failures and misbehaviour.  25 YEARS AGO  After a lengthy discussion by Gibsons Council, the  street numbering system, a subject of debate for some  time, was passed.  30 YEARS AGO  The Village Commission will write Premier Bennett to  see what can be done about settling the pulp and paper  mill strike which affects Port Mellon and other mills.  A meeting is to be held under the auspices of the  Roberts Creek Improvement Association to protest the  Black Ball Ferries increase in trucking rates.  40 YEARS AGO  Renovation by the B.C.

SUBSCR|PTiON RATES  Canada: 1 year $35; 6 months $20; Foreign; 1 year $40  Co-determination  To a resident of British Columbia what I was reading seemed as fanciful and unlikely as  Grimm's Fairy Tales.  I mean, here was a captain of  industry being quoted to the effect that the trade union  members on his board of directors were first class people; here  was an economist hired by trade  unions fretting that perhaps  their wages were getting too  high for the national good.  There were a half dozen examples of such unlikely matter  which to a resident of this industrial battleground seemed  the stuff of science fiction or  some sociologist's fantasy.  I had in fact picked up a copy  of the prestigious right-wing  British Journal The Economist,  dated November 21, 1987. The  lead article was reluctantly enthusiastic about the successes of  the Scandinavian model of  economic organization. I say  reluctanctly enthusiastic because  the Scandinavian model is certainly not followed by the  government of Margaret Thatcher which The Economist  staunchly supports.  The Scandinavians refer to  their system as co-determination. They recognize that  the three main players in the  economies of their nations are  big business, trade unions, and  the government. Regular  negotiations take place on a tripartite basis on the directions  that economic development  should take place for the national good.  Trade unionists routinely" occupy seats on the board of  directors of major companies  and every possible effort is  made  to  avoid  confrontation  and hostility. To a lesser degree,  like consultation and cooperation takes place in the  economies of Japan and Germany which, with the Scandinavian countries, are the most successful economies in the industrialized world.  One doesn't have to belabour  the point to make it. Here in  B.C. we have a government  which seems bent on eradicating  trade unions entirely; we have a  premier who announced radical  economic initiatives without  even consulting his own party or  referring the proposals to the  elected assembly of people's  representatives. Consequently  we live in an atmosphere of constant turmoil, rife with distrust,  ill-feeling and fear.  On the federal scene we have  the free trade proposal which  sees a prime minister who opposed free trade eloquently  when seeking the leadership of  his party announcing now that  he will ram it through whether  the provinces like it or not.  What free trade with the  United States means is hitching  Canada's destiny even more to  the market-driven American  economy at a time when the  United States has become the  world's leading debtor nation  and its enormous deficits are endangering the market which  drives it, as recent events have  graphically shown.  The situation is that radicals  masquerading as conservatives  are in command of the economies of Great Britain, the  United States and increasingly  Canada. British Columbia's last  two governments have taken  their economic policies almost  directly   from  the  Fraser   In  stitute, which organization, incredibly, enjoys tax-free status  so that major corporations  . which fund its misguided  ideology of the far right can  claim tax deductions.  The philosophy was  developed by Milton Friedman  of the Chicago School of  Economics and was first tried in  Chile after the overthrow of the  Allende elected government,  some 15 years ago. The result  has been constant turmoil,  savage military rule, and mass  poverty but it functions in the  interests of the multi-national  corporations and has their  generous support.  It should be noted that even  there it is a short-term interest  that it serves since that majority  portion of the world which lives  in chronic destitution must be  lifted from distress if a stable  world economy in a peaceful  world is ever to be achieved.  Meanwhile in Scandinavia  the economies function  smoothly and prosperously, the  inner-city decay which bedevils  the United Kingdom and the  United States with the attendant  savage social problems is virtually unknown.  ��  The key is a role for entrepreneurs,  a role  for trade  unions and an active role for the  government. The Scandinavians  call it co-determination and the  key journal of right-wing thinking in the UK writes about it  with grudging admiration.  Meanwhile   in   B.C.  premier who was elected  mising open government  consultation announces sweeping economic changes of a combative nature while apparently  consulting no one but his principal   secretary   and   the   atmosphere of turmoil and uncertainty goes on in the name of  conservatism.  the  pro-  and  Emily Carr  Like Jonah in the green belly of the whale  Overwhelmed by Leviathan's lights and liver  Imprisoned and appalled by the belly's wall  Yet inscribing and scoring the uprush  Sink vault and arch of that monstrous cathedral,  Its living bone and its green pulsing flesh���  Old woman, of your three days' anatomy  Leviathan sickened and spewed you forth  In a great vomit on coasts of eternity.  Then, as for John of Patmos, the river of life  Burned for you an emerald and jasper smoke  And down the valley you looked and saw  All wilderness become transparent vapour,  A ghostly underneath a fleshly stroke,  And every bush an apocalypse of leaf  Wilfred Watson  Maryanne's Viewpoint  Privatization needs a defence  by Maryanne West  It was too bad Harold Long  couldn't participate in the  discussion on privatization last  Wednesday. Without him, or  someone willing to put the case  for privatization, the whole  point of the exercise was lost.  Undoubtedly there are lots of  people like me who would like  to know just what the benefits  are and whether the government  has done its homework and  really lined up the pros and cons  or whether it's just riding a buzz  word to what looks like an oversimplified solution to the problem of too little money to  cover all the services people  need.  We pay the government to  provide services which we cannot provide for ourselves;  roads, schools, street lighting,  mail delivery, police, hospitals,  transportation etc. We expect  the government to supply these  services in the most efficient  manner making the best of our  tax dollars. We recognize that  some of those services may have  to be subsidized, because they  may not be able to break even,  though run efficiently, and at  the same time provide the level  of service we need.  Let's take highway maintenance, that being the service the  government plans to sell off  next.  The taxpayer will of course  still pay the cost of maintaining  the highways, but now we have  to pay not only the cost of the  work but a profit for the  operator.  There are surely only two  ways in which this can be done,  either by providing less service  and/or paying the crews less  money, or by raising taxes.  It doesn't seem to me that  either option makes any sense.  Highway maintenance is an  essential service and the standards should not be compromised.  Cutting back on salaries will  only mean there is less money  circulating in the community,  which obviously will have a  spin-off effect on all other  businesses.   Didn't   we   just  recently hear all those cries of  anguish about the fate of the  economy if people were frightened into not spending by the  stock market shenanigans?  It has always been the practice of highway departments to  contract out certain jobs to  small local outfits. The big entrepreneurs who take over may  not have any such need or concern, with further detrimental  effects on local economies.  I suppose there are people  who believe that efficiency is  dependent upon motivation for  profit. I think that is one of  those fallacies which has gained  adherents through constant  repitition, but remains un-  proven.  It's an over-simplification to  think that all business is efficient or it goes belly-up, or that  all government operations are  of themselves expensive and inefficiently run. Government,  after all, sets the budget and can  weed out inefficient managers.  The economies of western nations depend, in a large part,  upon the people's ability to buy  consumer goods and union  wage scales have been instrumental in fuelling the  economy over the past two to  three decades. While one can  obviously price oneself out of  the market, and unions continue to be slow to react to such  threats, it must be equally  counter-productive to cut back  on people's spending power.  It seems to me that the  economy is a very complex,  closely inter-related fabric,  which to be maintained adequately needs governments of  wide horizons and understanding and can be easily damaged  by narrow ideologies which put  theory before everything, including common sense.  There must be lots of people  on the Sunshine Coast who  adhere to the philosophy of free  enterprise and privatization. It  would be helpful if some of  them could explain how privatization of road maintenance  will benefit British Columbians  in general and the Sunshine  Coast in particular. i)r^il��.ap_��W���yywijgygBijjBtll  ii ^j!��������������� **n iiuj niyn ^m��i t|a ���ina[iiiiia|�� ��� ���%jnniyy��pt  S*"  I  5  8  r*  A  m  >��  p>  s  %  PB  w  i  *  f  *  Coast News, November 30,1987  i:':iv  iri-  i;  -o;  -H-  ii:  VU'J  ttvii  *;- '  Sir  Editor:  Last year about this time  Gwen Robertson did a study  and determined that there was  a need for a food bank in Gibsons.  Next came the idea of opening a thrift store to help  generate funds.  There has been great  response from the community  on all levels. Donations of  clothing, food, money and  time have been greatfully appreciated.  Special thanks have to go to  the people at Gibsons Building  Supplies. They seem to always  be there when there is a community need (we are sorry for  last week's inconvenience).  I'd also like to thank the  hardworking corps of volunteers who, through their efforts, make it possible to help  others.  We will be needing more  volunteers to help out in the  store starting in December. If  you have some extra time, I'm  sure you would find it fun and  rewarding.

Kathy Love  Tiresome  approach  Editor:  On my last weekly trip to  the post office for the Coast  News, a campaign flyer fluttered out of my mailbox, proclaiming the promise of 'a  business like approach in  Council.'  We presently live under a  provincial government whose  policies exemplify this approach and the shameful  results are more apparent  every day. Instead of legislation which protects and furthers individual and social  well-being, we get conflict of  interest, scandals, privatization  schemes'and heartless budget  cutbacks.  In regards to the recent local  election results, I was very  disappointed at Laara Dalen's  failure to win an aldermanic  seat. I think that the skills of  imagination, nurturing and  resource management so  necessary in maintaining a  household make a mother  much better qualified for a  position in government than a  businessman.  Frankly, I am sick to death  of this archaic 'business-like'  approach which is responsible  for the degradation of our  communities, our habitat and  the human spirit of cooperation.

There'll be lots of items to  choose from so plan on doing  some serious Christmas shopping.  The Faire runs from 10 until  3. Admission is 50 cents. If you  have questions phone Diana  Zornes at 886-2087 after 6 pm.  ANNUAL BINGO  Bingo players are no doubt  aware that this Saturday,  December 5, is the Roberts  Creek Volunteer Fire Department's annual bingo. A lot of  people come out to support the  firemen as well as to try for the  big money and the firefighters  appreciate it.  Tickets are $5 at Seaview  Market and from some firemen  (or their wives). There may be  some available at the door but  they're usually sold out early.  Doors at the Roberts Creek  Community Hall open at 6 pm.  Early Bird bingo starts at 7:30  pm.  LEGION MUSIC  Steve Hubert will be performing at the Roberts Creek Legion  this Saturday, December 5.  Steve has an easy-listening style  that young and old will both enjoy.  Bob Carpenter and Ken  Dalgleish return to the Legion  December 12. It's been a while  since we've seen them there so  come on out.  The Good Times duo will be  back on December 18 and 19  with a special Christmas  celebration   on   the   Saturday  night.   Start   practising   your  yuletide carols.  And get your tickets early for  New Year's Eve with Larry  Bransen. They're $25 per couple, $15 single, and are available  at the Legion bar or from Roy  Cardinal. They'll go quickly so  don't wait too long.  The Legion's weekly meat  draws continue Saturday afternoons starting at 4 pm and  they're still serving dinners on  Friday night. The roast beef last  week looked and smelled  wonderful.  And renovations to the  Legion hall are happening  quickly. In one week the stage,  office, and back storage room  have disappeared and the  lounge looks twice as big as  before.  AUXILIARY THANKS  The Roberts Creek Branch of  St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliary  wishes to thank all the friends  of the cornmuriityand members-  of other auxiliary branches for  their interest and support of the  very successful Christmas  bazaar on November 21.  Doctor W. Burtnik opened  the bazaar with a very interesting account of the activities of St. Mary's Hospital  and he thanked the hospital  auxiliaries for their unflagging  work and support in helping to  keep the hospital so well-  equipped.  The lucky winners of the  bazaar raffles were: L. Kob-  belvebt of North Delta, the rug;  Wilma Sims of Langdale, the  bedspread; Nora Weller of  Roberts Creek, the rod and reel;  and Mrs. O'Brian of Roberts  Creek, the doll.  The annual meeting of the  Roberts Creek Branch of the  hospital auxiliary will be held  next Monday, December 7, at  11 am at the Roberts Creek  Legion. It will be followed by a  luncheon at 12:30.  POPPY THANKS  The Roberts Creek Legion  wishes to thank the Sunshine  Coast Golf and Country Club,  the Peninsula Hotel, the  Creekhouse Restaurant, Seaview Market, and Roberts  Creek Elementary for collecting  donations in the Remembrance  Day poppy campaign this year.  Many thanks also to all who  contributed to this worthwhile  cause.  The monies from the poppies  are held in trust to help needy  ex-servicemen right in our community so you can be sure  they're put to good use.

Heart Foundation presented  Outstanding Service Awards to  Cedar Grove and Sechelt Elementary Schools for their efforts in raising money with their  Jump Rope for the Heart campaign.  Trustee Dave Mewhort proposed that the Ad Hoc Committee on the Sullivan Report  remain in existence for another  60 days and their findings be  reviewed in detail at that time.  District Superintendent Art  Holmes discussed the considerable staffing problems to  be faced in implementing a  more comprehensive French  program in local schools. The  issue was tabled to the  December 8 meeting to allow  more time for study.  Ricki Moss, the retired coordinator of Continuing Education, presented her annual  report to the Board. In it, she  discussed the wide range of services made available by Continuing Education over the past  year. In addition to the large  number of general interest  courses, Continuing Education  also implemented special interest programs. These included  the Adult Learning Centre in  Gibsons, ABLE (Adult Basic  Literacy Education), ESL (English as a Second Language),  Aquaculture Training and the  highly successful Native Film  Festival.  8#6-2425   Tues^Ffr^ 10^4;  11 am ��� 5 pm  Family Pack - Bone In - Shoulder  PORK BUTT  STEAKS   k,3.5i  ��,.

Coast News, November 30,1987  ee struck to advise on wharf  by Joel Johnstone  Parking on the Gibsons  Wharf is going back to a permit system and towing of  vehicles in violation of parking  regulations could commence  as early as this week.  The 'experiment' allowing  parking on the wharf ramp until December 31 is still in effect  and these next few weeks will  be its probation period.  The decision appeared to  have been made before Canadian Coast Guard (CCG)  Regional Manager Dave Barratt, and Area Manager Terry  Berscheid met with Mayor  Diane Strom, Wharf Manager  Larry Reardon, and over 10  commercial wharf-users last  Tuesday afternoon.  Berscheid explained that the  CCG does not consider the  wharf a parking lot because  1986 revisions to government  wharf regulations consider the  pile and trussel structure as an  industrial loading and  unloading zone of a highly  flammable nature, stating, in  effect, no vehicles may park  on the wharf unless involved  in an activity directly related  to the wharf.  But because the wharf here  is used by tourists, recreational boaters, and commercial users, Berscheid said,  "We developed a program  where we would allow parking  on the wharfhead approach  between the hours of 6 am and  9 pm. The reason we could not  allow it beyond that time being  we would not be in compliance  with the regulations."  He says his department is  willing to go along with this  permit system 'as long as it is  not creating problems for the  wharf manager' and called for  the co-operation and assistance of everyone using the  wharf.  Rex Davey said, "One of the  problems down there is a lack of  common sense," saying the  rules are out of date with the  needs of users of the wharf.  Berscheid countered, saying  140 wharves are governed by  these regulations and they  have no problems because  people accept that situation.  But Gibsons is unique in that  the high level of traffic puts  demands on the wharf not experienced at others.  The painted lines on the  ramp and wharf were put in  place by the Town of Gibsons,  Strom told the gathering. The  current parking problem is not  new and she pointed out,  "When the Town leased the  wharf we allowed parking but  also gave out parking tickets.  We finally gave up leasing the  dock." She explained that the  Town did not want the enforcement problem.  Now that the CCG is  'holding a gun to our heads',  by threatening to barricade the  wharf, Strom told those  gathered it would be in their  best interests to work towards  creating a better environment  for Reardon to work in.  Brian McDermit, however,  complained that fish sales  from the boats had suffered  because there were no  available parking spaces for  people on the wharfhead.  Berscheid saw the need for  flexibility and said, "Perhaps  we can set up a IS minute  parking zone for vehicles that  could come down for that purpose. But if we find this isn't  working we'll take that  away."  Barratt pointed out that he  Judy Fitzgerald sips a little house wine while waiting for judges at  the Roberts Creek Legion Branch 140 to begin testing the quality of  seven brews and 17 wines competing for prizes from Cedars Pub in  Gibsons and the Roberts Creek Store. ���Joel Johnstone photo  IRIDOLOGIST, HERBALIST & REFLEXOLOGIST  (Certified Graduate of Wild Rose College of Natural Healing)  Iridology is a science involving the study of the iris, which shows the condition of all body tissue.

"What we're trying to do  here is facilitate the use of the  wharf for everybody. But," he  added, "the CCG still has to  comply with regulations."  When a suggestion came  from the floor to have a committee set up to help Reardon  with suggestions and ideas,  Barratt responded, "That's  what I hoped to see come out  of this. I hoped to see a harbour or port committee to sit  down and have a chance to  talk this over." He later added  the CCG would lend its  research resources to the committee if it chose to further its  role from a communication  forum to a lobby group for  maintenance improvements to  the wharf.  At the urging of Gary  Russel, of the United  Fishermen and Allied Workers  Union   (UFAWU),   nomina  tions for the committee were  put forward. Alderman Gerry  Dixon was Mayor Strom's  choice as the town's representative; Dick Richardson offered to represent the  towboats; Rex Davey for the  UFAWU; George Murray and  Jim Harding for pleasure and  recreation craft; Ian Corrance  and Mark Wilton sitting for  the independent fishermen.  But the committee got off to  a staggered beginning the next  day when no one made sure  Reardon   knew   of  its   first  meeting at 8 am that morning.  Reardon,  however,  is optimistic,   even   if   somewhat  leery of some people's reasons  for sitting on the committee.  The first wharf meeting two  weeks ago and the one this  past week have produced an  atmosphere of communication  between himself, the unions,  and   individual   committee  members, he says didn't exist  before.

A dozen times each year  ; the main intersection is blocked by a truck that stalls at the corner.  \ A by-paSS anyone? ���Peony Fuller photo  \ Privatization under fire  ��� Continued from page 1  t     Gibsons   Mayor   Diane  \ Strom sent a message that she  \ was not able to attend the  i meeting because of illness. In-  deluded in the message was the  statement, "I believe strongly  : that   highways   and   bridge  "maintenance is an important  public service and should not  be privatized."  Recent Gibsons aldermanic  candidate Gladys Sluis stood  up and said she saw the Legion  Hall as an appropriate place  for the meeting in light of  Remembrance Day a short  while ago and people having  given their lives for freedom.  "Government employees are  afraid to voice their opinions  and that scares the hell out of  me," she said, "Vander Zalm  was brought up under a different regime and I would like  to know where he gets his  orders."  One comment from the audience in reference to Vander  Zalm was, "Can you imagine  what this guy would be like if  he had an army?"  In fact, the whole nature of  ^how/the premier does business  ��� was questioned by Jack Camp-  >bell of the BCGEU. "The  ^Premier's support committee  has gone from 13 to 94.  Ministers must seek an appointment with David Poole  (executive assistant) to see the  ^premier..;/;;;.;;;i^    ..._;  t    ''Is David Poole running the  province or is it right out of  control?" Campbell asked.  Campbell also shed some  light on the average wages of  government jemployees.  "Thirty-one percent of BCGU  employees arei below the  poverty level,'! he stated,  "The government defines the  poverty level at l$23,000 for a  family of four."  Roger Douglas, president of  the Sunshine Cpast Teachers  Association summed up' the  direction education appeared  to be taking. "The rich get and  the poor don't," he said,  "Those designated as smart  get to go and those who are  not don't." In!his view the  goal of the Vander Zalm  regime was to 'create a highly  educated management and a  poorly educated Nvorker."  And in rebuttal to the, one  lone voice that stood up and  stated that government  workers had a -high rate of  absenteeism, etc. Douglas  said, "If you! have those  criticisms, go with the workers  to their jobs and find out  before your comment.  As far as Harold Long is  concerned, the organizers of  the meeting do not plan to let  him escape. Cable 10 recorded  the entire session and he will be  receiving a copy of the tape.  "Mr. Long has a lot to do,"  said Sheila Kitson as she closed  the meeting, "He has two hours -  of viewing."  by George Cooper, 886-8520  If any one of us was the  returning officer or one of her  assistants last November 21,  civic election day, he or she  would be glad there were only  about twice 650 ballots to  count. Especially considering  the count was the last chore of a  14 hour day.  But those ballots represented  less than half the eligible voters  of Gibsons. Some might consider 40 percent of all possible  voters a pretty good turnout.  What held the other GO percent  away from the polls? Was there  an angry boycott, a glaciation  of thought, or a big 'forgot'?  Perhaps some, like spouses of  property owners, do not realize  that they are resident electors.  Some may think that one vote  per family is duty done. Some  did not pay attention to letters  sent them, to advertisements,  that told of a change in an  eligibility regulation; namely,  no longer can 'other British subjects' qualify to vote.  The change allowed only  Canadian citizens, subject to  other requirements, to be eligible. Corporate electors who did  not re-confirm eligibility before  election day, could not vote.  Some came and wejre turned  away. )  And it all comes back to this:  Check the voters; list well before  election day.

As reported earlier, the  November 21 concert was  quickly sold out and on short'  notice for ticket sales, it was  suggested that we convert the  'Night to Remember' into an  'Afternoon to Remember' and  hold a Sunday afternoon show.  The cast involved agreed. The  repeat show became a reality at  which some hundred plus people who missed the first performance were able to enjoy  Nikki's show.  From the starting selection by  the 'Rolling Tones' it was obvious that 'there's no business  like show business'. Soloists for  the evening and afternoon performances were: Kevin Cohen,  Patty Miller, Walter James,  Joan Bist, Arline Collins, Anne  Barker, Alice Horsman, Doug  Third and Pat Kerr. Patty  Miller and Walter James gave  their rendition of 'With, a Song  in My Heart'. Ronnie Dunn,  George Cavalier, Connie  Wilson and Viv Pallot supplied  the humour which was interspersed with the great selection of vocal gems. Group  numbers by the Rolling Tones,  'Fiddler on the Roof and selec  tions from 'Show Boat' were  well received. The ladies of this  group presented 'The Italian  Street Song' and last but not  least, the 69ers contributed  several numbers with solo parts  by Doug Third, Ron Huggins  and Eric Huggins. Selma and  Bob Grimsdick danced to our  'Top Hat, White Tie and Tails'  and Eric Rudland provided  mouth organ accompaniment to  our rendition of 'Shen-  nondoah'. Nikki Weber conducted the groups and Connie  Wilson accompanied all artists  on piano.  This was probably one of  Nikki's most outstanding accumulations of talent since the  inception of these semi-classical  concert presentations a few  years ago. The Saturday concert  was a benefit for the new  Seniors Hall (sod-turning  scheduled for August 1988),  and the Sunday performance  was a benefit for the Pender  Harbour School of Music.  SCA CONVENTION  How often do you hear someone- say "I wish they'd do  something about this or that".  It's always THEY. How about  THEM! Now is the time to put  your pen to paper and put down  your resolution which will be  presented to the Annual Senior  Citizens Association of B.C.  Convention at the Hudson's  Bay Lodge in Smithers. This  will   take   place   in   May.  However, resolutions should be  presented to our branch no later  than February for processing by  the provincial body. It would  seem that the 'powers that be'  are gradually chipping away at  programs that have been  established for many years and  have always been taken for  granted. Your voice to your  provincial convention could be  the voice that will break the axe  handle before the axe falls. Express your concerns with a  resolution!  OUR ACTIVITY CENTRE  Your building committee will  now be meeting every third  Thursday at 9 am in our hall to  keep abreast of development.  There will be no phone commit-  tee to advise committee  members, so please mark your  calendars accordingly. At our  meeting on November 18 a  committee of three was struck  to meet with Fiord Design and  Construction to make some  decisions on colours, hardware,  etc. Our thanks are tendered to  these brave people. Good luck'.;  Motorists  warned  new manager  by Ken Collins  Rockwood Lodge is now  under the management of the  Rockwood Lodge Society and is  looking for business as well as  members in the society.  Built in 1935, this heritage  building at one time was a  destination point by boat from  Vancouver. Both Gulf Lines  and Union Steamships used to  make the three hour trip from  Vancouver to Sechelt and  among the attractions at  Rockwood Lodge were the lovely tea garden, the asphalt tennis  court and the badminton court.  The reason for some of the  renovations is that the last function of Rockwood Lodge was to  serve as a spa and mud bath  treatment centre. The ground  floor had been cubicled off and  is being returned to its original  shape. The premises are also being modified so as to have  wheelchair access.  The garden is also being  renovated thanks to the skills of  Bruno, the Sechelt municipality  gardener.  The project is being  facilitated by a JobTrac grant  which will help in the hiring of  one supervisor and five crew  members for a 20 week period.  The staff include market researcher Janice Hendry who is there  to help drum up business.  The goals of the Rockwood  Lodge Society are to promote  cultural, educational, and  recreational pursuits. They are  hoping to supply space for  workshops, meetings, retreats,  in-residence courses, and so on.  The list of possibilities is  endless.  Janice Hendry pointed out  that the lodge was used successfully last year for the  Writers in Residence program  and that the annex is a perfect  small convention centre. It has  12 double occupancy bedrooms  and a large meeting/workshop  space. It also has a fully equipped kitchen and dining room.  "We really welcome ideas  and volunteers," emphasized  Hendry, y It's not, a closed  thing."  cc  s  CO  e  6 ��� 9pm ONLY  Friday, December 4/87  MACLEOD  Cowrie St., Sechelt 885-2171  3  9sivi/MNVHsmcfV)iNOi��s3.wo��sy3mojsNvyi  KEEP WHAT  YOU EARN  The only way to save money and  build toward a better tomorrow is  to pay yourself first.

The libraries have been  operated by volunteers with a  small amount of funding from  the municipality in an overcrowded space.  The library needs to be open  more hours, but it doesn't have  enough volunteers to cover present hours. To alleviate this a  part-time clerk has been hired,  but more help is needed. But,  no funds.  Four times the space is needed to accomodate all the books  that could be purchased with  the money from the provincial  government for book purchase.  Also there are other additional  services that could be supplied if  more space were available.  Sechelt library owns the  building and the municipality  owns the land and pays the insurance.  When Sechelt was a village of  1100 population the library  received $1500. Now that it is a  district municipality of 4800,  they give the library $5000.  Gibsons with a population of  approximately 3000 gives its  library $8000. They also have a  part-time paid staff, need more  volunteers, more space and  more money.  A meeting chaired by  Margaret Shuttleworth to distribute the $5000 grant money  from the Sunshine Coast  Regional District was attended  by representatives from the two  libraries and three reading centres (Wilson Creek, Roberts  Creek and Pender Harbour),  library board members Art  McPhee and Fred Dowdie, and  from the SCRD Peggy Connor.  The split was $1700 to Sechelt  and Gibsons, $400 to Wilson  Creek and $800 each to Roberts  Creek and Pender Harbour.  The New Approaches Task  Force report is not available as  yet and perhaps there will be  more help from the province. In  the meantime the Katherine  Feeney report has been discussed and all parties seem to be in  agreement with her recommen  dations. Those are: to form a  regional committee, hire a professional librarian, to serve all  the libraries, and another staff  member or two, and have the  SCRD apply for letters patent  to raise the funds for the whole  Coast to serve everyone with  library service.  To this end, both municipalities and the regional district  agree with this proposal. All  have signed, with the exception  of Sechelt who have refused.  Stalemate - the time is running  out for next year's budget to  make this work and time is what  the libraries do not have.  The same needs are identified  by all the libraries and reading  centres as stated for Sechelt.

The XV Olympic Winter Games open  in Galgary on February 13,1988.  These will be the first Winter Games to  be held in Ganada.  To share the spirit of our Olympics,  communities across Canada are recognizing  local citizens for their support of amateur sport  and for their contributions to the community  as a whole.  Recognition will be given in the form of  a Government of Canada Celebration 88  Award.  A male and female local athlete, coach, sponsor,  volunteer and official will each receive a  Celebration 88 medal for their contribution to  amateur sport. Other active community  members will be honoured with Celebration 88  certificates.  A Government of Canada  representative will present these awards at a  special ceremony. For communities located on  the route, the ceremony will likely be held in  conjunction with the arrival of the Olympic  Torch Relay, sponsored and organized by  Petro-Canada. Also, a number of the awards  recipients, selected through a draw, will be  flown to the Olympic Winter Games in Calgary,  courtesy of Air Canada.

He was a shy  retiring man who avoided the  public platform like the plague.  When his radical ideas came  under scathing attack by the  religious establishment, other  more-articulate men were obliged to spring to his defense.  The man who was to so  drastically; revolutionize scientific thought, gave little evidence  of such potential in his early  years. Born in 1809 in  Shrewsbury, England, to a  family of extremely liberal leanings, Darwin was an omnivorous reader but an undistinguished scholar. From the  very beginning however, he  displayed an extreme fascination with nature, particularly  birds and insects. Darwin's  father, a prosperous doctor,  wanted the boy to follow in his  footsteps,  but young  Charles  had no inclinations for this calling. He attended Cambridge  University and graduated  without honours, intent on a  career in science. His proficiency as a naturalist did not go unnoticed. It brought Darwin at  length, to the attention of a  Captain Robert Fitzroy who  was embarking on a voyage  around the world for the Royal  Navy. Fitsroy was seeking a  man with such talents to accompany the crew and young  Charles fitted the bill. At the  age of 22, with his father's  reluctant permission, he embarked on the long sea journey  that would change his life.  The HMS Beagle, a three-  masted brig with six guns, set  sail for the Atlantic coast of  South America, in January  1832. It was a rough voyage and  Darwin was seasick almost constantly for the first two weeks.  He forgot his discomforts  however, when the ship finally  anchored in Rio De Janeiro and  he was able to commence his  research. He was amazed at the  Local environmentalist  goes to Parliament  Local environmentalist  Carole Rubin has been asked to  appear before the House of  Commons Committee reviewing the Environmental Protection Act in Ottawa this week.  "I intend to give testimony to  the effect that the bill, as it  stands, is so weak as to render it  useless. There's no provision for  civil suits against pollutors, for  the federal government to im  pose the law where a province is  in contravention, and the  money for enforcement is a pittance. I'll be stressing the need  for these amendments in my  brief," said Rubin in an interview with the Coast News today.  The review should be concluded before the House breaks  for Christmas. Ms Rubin will be  reporting on the proceedings.  Shop^Easy  Trail Bay Centre  Sechelt 885-2025  OPEN TIL 9:00 FRIDAYS  DAILY  DRAWJU^ IK\  DRAW.  WIN!

The Beagle worked its way  down the coast. It was in  Patagonia that Darwin first  began to formulate his evolutionary theories. He was intrigued by the fact that the  prehistoric giant sloth had  degenerated into a small sluggish tree-dweller and the Tox-  odon, an elephant-sized rodent,  into a much smaller creature  called a capybara. It seemed to  refute the idea of a uniform  Creation.  It was when the Beagle  rounded the Horn and reached  the Galapagos Islands, that  Darwin's theory really began to  take on solidity. Here he  discovered 12 distinct species of  finch, each one having adapted  to its particular environment by  slight variations in the beak.  Evolution was irrefutable and  his direction was forged.

On Monday, November 23,  Liz Davies swerved to avoid  children on the road between  the Langdale ferry terminal and  Port Mellon, and ran into the  side of a Peninsula Transport  truck, dying in the collision.  On Friday, November 27, a  vehicle with Alberta licence  plates came around the curve on  Highway 101, just south of the  Peninsula Motor Inn, and flipped over, killing one passenger  and injuring another. Witnesses  to the single vehicle accident say  the road had been salted only  five minutes before the accident. Names of the victims have  not been released pending  notification of relatives.  One of the people who has to  deal with the end result of vehicle accidents, RCMP Constable  Ross Spenard of the Sechelt  detachment, told the Coast  News, "Weather is not really a  major factor. If you look at the  majority of accidents and the  way they ocur, the weather may  be a factor but it's mostly driver  error."  ICBC Manager of Media Services Roberta Prepchuk backs it  up with statistics, saying the  corporation has found through  its own research 85 percent of  accidents are a result of human  error.  When looking at B.C. Motor  Vehicles Department figures she  found for 1986, 67 percent of  accidents were caused by human  action, with the most contributing factors (from highest  to lowest): driving without due  care, failing to yield right of  way, alcohol involvement,  backing up unsafely, weather  and driving at unsafe speeds.  "Weather," she says, "was  included with road conditions  and constituted 16 percent of  major contributing factors."  Safety programs and defensive driving courses won't earn  anyone credits towards lower  premiums, and although ICBC  doesn't recognize safety or  defensive driving courses as  solutions to the accident rate in  the   province,  Gibsons RCMP, whose juris- ,  diction is from Port Mellon to  Lockyer/Flume Road, recorded, in 1987 four fatal accidents,  39 related injuries, and 130 involving damage to property. In  Peace curriculum a first  Jack Pope, head of the  Committee for the Peace Curriculum, told the School  Board at last Tuesday's  meeting that groups across the  country are watching with  great interest the progress of  School District 46 in developing a peace curriculum.  No other school district in  B.C. or the rest of Canada has  attempted the comprehensive  Kindergarten to Grade 12 program that is planned by the  Sunshine Coast. "We are on  the leading edge," said Pope.  "When our program is completely developed it will serve  as a model for educators  across the country."

DEVLIN  Director  presentation to the board, but  declined to release it to the  public yet because, said committee member Marta  MacKown, "It's very rough.  There's still lots of polishing  to do. The public will see it  when it's complete."  Other committee members  are Roger Lagasse, Fran  Jovick and Joe Harrison.  They explained various aspects  of the planned curriculum.  Jovich spoke eloquently of  the power of the individual,  singly and en masse, to make  changes at a global level.  Two other groups spoke in  support of the curriculum.  Doctor Brian Myhill-Jones,  spokesman for the Canadian  Physicians for the Prevention  of Nuclear War, spoke on  behalf of the doctors of the  Coast. "There could be no  adequate medical response to  a nuclear war," said Myhill-  Jones. "The only viable alternative is prevention."  He went on to quote Carl  Sagan, "Children need to  know that 'no political system,  no economic hypothesis, no  religious dogma is more important than the risk of annihilating billions of years of  tortuous biological evolution  on the earth'."  A group of students at  Elphinstone Secondary School  have formed a Peace Club and  several members spoke simply  but eloquently of the urgent  need for peace as seen from  the student point of view.  Trustee Doris Fuller summed it all up by saying, "I am  floored by the amount of work  that has been done by the committee. It's a huge job and  they have made tremendous  strides."  It may well be that the Sunshine Coast will turn out to be  an example to the rest of the  country by showing that individuals do have the power to  make changes in world conditions.  1986, the same area saw no  fatalities, 48 injuries and 95 property damage.  Sechelt detachment, covering  an area from Lockyer/Flume  Road to Earls Cove, recorded  three fatal accidents in 1987, 38  injuries related to traffic accidents and 131 accidents involving damage to vehicles. In  1986, the same area had no  fatalities, 37 injuries, and 132  property damage.  Spenard doesn't quite know  how to explain why this year  fatalities are up.

Rain  precludes any further outdoor  activities. The rest of the day is  spent visiting with some of Sandi 's friends.  Tuesday. The holiday is over.  Sandi has to return to her  classes. Yvonne and I have to  get back to the Coast. We pack  our gear, eschew breakfast and  get rolling early.  At Castlegar, we turn off and  locate the reconstructed  Doukhobor village, only to  discover that most of it has  recently been destroyed by fire.  "That figures,'-' I joke,  although, in all fairness, the  majority of the Doukhobors are  peace-loving folk who deplore  the torch-wielding activities of  the radical Sons of Freedom  sect. ;  The Administration Building/cum museum is still standing. We talk to the woman in  charge, a pleasant lady in braids  called Christina, and learn,  among other things, that the  communal style of living was  abandoned by the Doukhobors  around 1939. The museum itself  is a replica of an oldstyle communal house. We wander  through it. Everything is very  authentic except for the human  figures which are obviously  department store mannequins  whose non-Slavic features,  modern hairstyles and lipsticked  mouths, belie the traditional  costumes they are wearing. A  minor quibble however.  Christina advises us that the  best and most authentic history  of the Doukhobors is a book by  George Woodcock. We thank  her and take our leave.  We hit Grand Forks, hungry,  around 10 o'clock and load up  on bacon and eggs at a local  cafe. Then we check the  museum to see if there are any  oral history records of the  Doukhobor's communal experience. The young Custodian  directs us to a Doukhobor Centre about three miles up the  highway. Yvonne contacts a  local historian there and arranges to have some transcripts  sent to her.  Our last museum stop is at  the border town, of Midway  which we have never investigated before. The lawn outside the building is distinguished  by a bizarre contraption that  turns out to be a horse-driven  chainsaw. A pretty good doggerel poem on a signboard  beside the artifact, affirms that  the Rube Goldberg-style device  was actually used in pioneer  times. The lady who runs the  museum is an ardent local  history buff and we have a  stimulating chat about mining,  bootlegging and other long-ago  goings-on in the area.  From this point on, it is  more-or-less a straight run for  home. We hit a furious cloudburst, some miles before  Princeton, that stops magically  just before we cruise into the  bone-dry town. "I don't think it  ever rains here," laughs  Yvonne.  We pause briefly for coffee  and toil up the winding entrance  to the Manning Pass. At the  highest pitch of the Pass, we actually run into a blizzard and  buck snowflakes for a good  many miles. Eventually, we  drop below it and head down  into the sunny Fraser Valley for  the last leg of the run, our  minds filled with bright  memories.

S1_IQ Coast News, November 30,1987  Gibsons Legion  Branch 109  f  by Ken Collins  Knighfshift  Featuring  $arrg Gillespie  Hall  ��� Lounge ���  Salvador Cardenal sang of Nicaraguans' longing for peace as pictures from his homeland were shown on  a screen with English translation of the lyrics at the Arts Centre last week. ���Penny Fuller photo  Nicaraguans entertain  Music and politics are old  friends. They combined in a  wonderfully moving performance at the Arts Centre last  Thursday as two Nicaraguan  musicians introduced the packed house to 'Volcanto'. The  term is derived from volcan  (volcano) and cantos (song) and  the music contains all the beauty and power of a steady flow of  lava, or passion.  Those who had heard Guar-  dabarranco at the Vancouver  Folk Festival may have been  disappointed when Ken  Dalgleish announced that Katia  Cardenal would not be perfor-  mind due to a severe case of  laryngitis. But her brother  Salvador Cardenal was joined  by Salvador Bustos and 'Duo  Salvador' wove their own kind  of magic for the evening.  The musicians are both active  members of the Sandinista  Association of Cultural  Workers and are touring the  world, "to make friendship  with people in all parts of the  world", Bustos explained to the  audience. The poetry of the  Spanish lyrics lost nothing in the  English translations that were  flashed on a screen below slides  of Nicaragua and its people.  "My house will be built by a  longing to sow songs irt hearts  and hear them echo in a thousand corners."  With brief introductions in  broken English the two brought  their message of brotherhood  and love in songs that described  a deep longing for peace, in  Nicaragua and in all lands.  They also describe in simple  terms what their people have  gone through and are still going  through.  One song, Cardenal explained, is about a pregnant woman  during the literacy campaign.  "Our situation is very hard,  cruel", he says, "Her husband  tells her 'Don't cry woman.  Please don't cry, because your  children will be born in a free  country.' "  While hope, determination  and love are the main ingredients of the musical offerings,  there were brief glimpses of the  frustration and despair which  must inevitably plague these  people in their struggle to build  their country. Although the  English was difficult for them,  Cardenal described his feelings  in terms that stirred everyone.  "This I love - to play the  guitar and sing to people in concert. This I love. I hate to shoot  a gun, and I think that all young  people hate to do this. But we  have to because some people are  trying to kill us."  The world concert tour that "  he is on has left its own wounds.  He told the audience of the  shock he suffered in West Germany when he discovered that  they have toilet paper for dogs.  "Our   children  are   dying  of  hunger and they care more for  their dogs than our children."  The concert was a benefit for  the Tools For Peace organization which is trying to supply  everything from fishing equipment to notebooks and rubber  boots to the people of Nicaragua. It's a grassroots organization, with ordinary people trying to help other ordinary people supplying ordinary things,  despite the political turmoil  which threatens Nicaraguans.  St. Mary's Hospital Administrator Ted Wright is optimistic that the eight bed cutback will be reversed by the new  year.  "The Premier announced a  $20 million fund to assist  hospitals with volume  increases," said Wright, "We  had already applied to the  Minister of Health for additional funds and we have made  a submission to the task force."  Wright pointed out that  although it has been difficult on  staff, they have been excellent at  assisting in solving the problems  created by the bed shortage.  None of the cutbacks were in  extended care, but Wright  pointed out that that is where  the main bed shortage is.  "There is pressure from a growing, population and an aging  population," he said. At present, after a certain length of  time in extended care, patients  have to be transferred to Powell  River, Lions Gate, or UBC in  order to make room for new  ones coming in.  The new wing is anticipated  to be opened at the end of May.  At that time the hospital has approval to increase the extended  care from 22 to 35 beds and the  acute care will increase from 49  to 71 by the end of July after  what is presently extended care  is renovated.  *  8:30 pm to 2 am  MIDNIGHT LUNCH & PARTY FAVOURS  Tickets On Sale At The Bar Semi-Formal Dress  $20.00 each MEMBERS & GUESTS WELCOME  s  3&DIWNGROOW  ZJ-ine oUi  Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays  From 5:30 pm  West on Cower Point Road QQe-  r.QQ~  'til you reach the Sea oOD��_Oo7  pVasp  <$  Kids only at  Nifty Thrifty's  Nifty Thrifty's in Gibsons will be holding a 'Kids Only'  Christmas sale next weekend.

After a busy day of scooping up  Christmas bargains, I decided I was too tired to cook dinner so I  stopped off at the Homestead to treat myself to dinner.  Walking through the door 1 was greeted with the delightful  sight of tables piled high with food. The Homestead was offering one of its fabulous buffets, a treat they offer to customers on  a surprise basis sometimes.  Settling down at a nearby table, I sat back and regained my  strength before diving into the first course, a selection from the  salad bar.  I love not having to make a decision. Everything I could  possibly want was there for my enjoyment: potato salad, cole  slaw, Greek salad, macaroni salad, tossed salad, etc., and beside  it all, straight out of the oven, hot French bread.  I decided to take my time between courses to make room for  the wide variety of delectables being offered for the main course.  I had to try a little of everything, knowing from past experience  that everything cooked at the Homestead is delicious. A little  prime rib and one sausage with gravy, beside a cabbage roll and  some chicken. The plate was already full.  Back at the table I relished every mouthful of the fabulous  food, but I had to make a return trip just to try the barbecued  ribs and the seafood and rice dish. Somehow, the Homestead  has mastered the art of cooking everything to perfection and  keeping it warm throughout the buffet without having that  warmed-up taste.  While you never know when this kind of buffet is going to be  offered, every weekend sees some kind of special selection of excellent quality. The price of my evening of culinary delight? Only $8.50 per person. Isn't it wonderful that on the Sunshine  Coast we don't have to pay fancy prices for great food.  The Homestead will be closing on December 22 until the end  of January, so treat yourself before Christmas to dinner at the  Homestead.  Average meal prices quoted do not include liquor.

The rain stopped long enough for our games  to be played.  In the 8 and 9 year olds,  Sechelt team #1 beat Sechelt  team ffl by a score of 1 to 0 and  in Gibsons, team #3 beat team  #4 by a score of 2 to 0.  The results of the 10 and 11  year olds were, Sechelt team #1  beating team #2 be a score of 5  to 0. The other game in this age  group saw Gibsons team #3 beat  Gibsons team #4 by a score of 1  toO.  If you were watching a soccer  game and there was a penalty  kick awarded in the penalty  area, the player takes the penalty kick, the ball hits the cross  bar, the player that took the  kick runs up and kicks the ball  in the goal before anyone else  touches the ball, would you  allow the goal or dis-allow it?  The answer is you have to disallow the goal because the person that took the penalty kick  can't touch the ball-again until  someone else has tbuched it. Excluding the referee, he is considered part of the playing field,  so if the same kick took place  and the ball hit the referee instead of the goal post and the  player kicked it in you would  still have to dis-allow the goal.  8 & 9 YEAR OLDS  W  Sechelt 1(G.

But things  are changing. "Before, PEP  took a passive role. Now we're  taking an active one," he said.  The change is due, in large  part, to being shifted to the  department of the Attorney  General. The minister immediately commissioned a  study on what is wrong with  the state of preparedness in  B.C., which came back with  230 recommendations on how  to improve what was noted to  be 'a generally poor state of  emergency preparedness'.  The program now has a new  mandate with more authority  and access to more resources,  Stewart explained. Legislation  is in the works which will  make it compulsory for  municipalities to have a plan  of action for meeting disaster  situations.  The Sunshine Coast committee greeted this news with  enthusiasm, chairman Peggy  Connor commented, "It's  about time. You can't imagine  how frustrating it is to know  that there is money to help  with these things and we can't  get our hands on it."  The provincial government  will also become a signator to  an emergency preparedness  plan of the federal government. At this time, B.C. is one  of three provinces which are  not part of the program,  preventing access to federal  funds available for emergency  programs.  PEP will now have a staff of  29 people divided into nine  areas which coincide with the  RCMP divisions. Stewart  pointed out that co-operation  is essential between the local  groups involved in the pro-  gram and the RCMP.  Design  featured:  UNICEF  tree  ornament  UNICEF cards save lives.

Proposed Gambier Island Trust Committee By-law No. 25 cited as "Sunshine Coast Regional  District Land Use Regulation By-law No. 96,1974, Gambier Island Trust Committee Zoning  Amendment By-law No. 1,1987" is a by-law to amend "The Sunshine Coast Regional District  Land Use Regulation By-law No. 96, 1974". In general terms, the intent of By-law No. 25 is:  1 .To add a new zoning classification entitled "Country and Institutional 3-P3" in which the  permitted uses are: residences, institutional camps, agriculture, logging and timber  removal, domestic industry, the keeping of all types of animals, civic use, and public service.

AC Building Suppl  OPEN SUNDAYS 10-4  Francis Peninsula Place,  Pender Harbour  883-9551  by Shirley Watson, 886-3304  A good turn-out attended our  general meeting of the Gibsons  Yacht Club held November 5 at  the Kin Hut.  Discussion was held on the  possible purchase of a home site  for the club, or an alternate  choice of having out-statiohs. It  was felt that the club's treasury  was not financially healthy  enough at this time to purchase  property for a club house. With  new members joining all the  time under our new membership director, Ian Morrow, we  hope to be in a better financial  picture in the near future to purchase a home for the club.  The new VHF regulations  state that all stations must use  their call signs and 'chatting' on  Channel 16 will be discouraged  by the Coast Guard.  'Flag-a-Snag' posts are still  available at the Gibsons  Marina. These flags are used for  marking   dangerous   floating  Pool  Report  by Bert Norman  Thanks to the West Howe  Sound Recreation Commission  and the Sunshine Coast  Regional Board, the Gibsons  Swimming Pool now has a new  and more effective filter system.  The swimmers are enjoying  clearer water and other improvements and upgrading  which were carried out during  the summer close down.  The hot pool has been tiled,  giving it a more attractive appearance and it is also easier on  the bathing suits.  New piping has been installed, making the circulation  system more effective.  The increased massaging  velocity of the hot pool is appreciated by those who have  sore_muscles, back aches, etc.  Itis a pleasure to have such a  facility so convenient and not  overcrowded.  Further thanks to Super Valu  and Gibsons Building Supplies  for sponsoring the pool  schedules in the newspaper - see  you at the pool.  debris in the water. These flags  are free to the public, so  remember to take one along  with you the next time you head  out on the water and mark  those dangerous deadheads.  For the avid crabbers and  prawners, remember all your  traps must be marked on the  floats with your boat name and  registrations, your own name  and number will also be encouraged. Those traps are very  costly and should they float  free, you have a better chance  of retrieving them if marked  correctly.  The club will be having a  'marine swap sale' in May at  Gibsons Marina. So remember,  when cleaning up your boat for  winter, save all your gear you  wish to sell or trade and bring it  to the swap sale. That will also  be a good time to pick up any  gear you will need for the spring  boating season. More on the  swap meet later on.  For the coming season, the  club will be having fishing derbies for the 'Stink Pots' - sail  races for the 'Rag Tops' - day  trips and weekend excursions  for both. It looks like we will  have a very exciting boating  season coming up and would  like to invite all you boating  people (with or without a boat)  to come and get involved in our  club.  Meetings are held the first  Thursday of every second  month. Next meeting at the Kin  Hut will be January 7. Hope to  see a lot of new faces there.  On Sunday, November 22 the  sailors of the Gibsons Yacht  Club braved almost every type  of weather conditions to race  over their 'inside' course. After  the rain came and went, and the  wind came and went, then completely died, Pat Legrandeur's  Glory came first over the rest of  the fleet by a long margin. Dave  Smethurst's Obelix was second  and the rest were becalmed.  The soaked sailors and guests  retired to the seafood  smorgasbord and warm hospitality of the Mariner to complete the day.

BBH To many people who know  % of him he is the Eagleman, but  5;* Sean Vanstrepen says,  "All  j? my  friends refer to me as  Count,   because   you   can  ^always count on me."  \*+   Which is true in the case of an  ���^upcoming Canadian Broadcasting Corporation episode of The  ,'Nature of Things scheduled to  ���'"air this Wednesday at 8 pm.  ,*     The show,  entitled  Borne  ; On The Wind, ran into filming  \ trouble when the nest they  \ were observing went through  one  of the  tragedies   often  -^associated with nature when  ^man comes into the picture.  ���"The parent eagles left the nest  and because of their overexposure to the sun, the eggs  r died.  '    The  crew  was  stuck  for  J another nest and that's where  ! Vanstrepen entered the scene.  i    Surrounded by various sized  \ photos   of   eagles   feeding  \ young,  landing  and  leaving  I nest   sites,   perched   and  ��� brooding in trees and on the  |j ground,   Vanstrepen   offered  i[his help through still pictures  %and locations the crew may  not have otherwise found to  meet their shooting schedule.  /   The site they chose in the  j Gibsons area was one he has  t observed   for   the  last   four  j years. Under the directorship  *-of freelance documentary and  '���film producer Mike Poole of  Sechelt, they spent two years  capturing almost 200 hours of  /film to be edited down to the  J one hour episode narrated by  J host David Suzuki.  I   For  Vanstrepen  the  thrill  'isn't just seeing his name roll  "cby on the credits, it's having  people   see   and   appreciate  something   he   has   helped  preserve so that others can  (share in the wonder he sees  {through a lens. Behind the images he has frozen for display,  'or sale, or for himself, there is  Sa strong conservationist hoping to influence others into  recognizing a need for the  preservation of many birds of  prey.  And he is a little bewildered  no one has pursued this type  of photographic work before  on the Sunshine Coast.  "Nobody's done this here  before. I can't believe it."  And because of that, he is  working towards bringing  stuffed hawks and eagles into  the classrooms of schools in  the area with the help of  Wildlife Conservation Officer  Jamie Stephen.  "If we can get one kid to get  interested in ornothology (the  study of birds), or go into ornothology, then it's worth it,"  he says of the educational  value of bringing nature into  children's lives early.  'A true bluenoser' from  Cape Breton who came to  Vancouver to visit a brother he  hadn't seen in 12 years, Sean  came to rest in Roberts Creek  for the last 16 years.  The truth is, as is the case  with most artists, he still has to  work to enable himself to  budget on a steady income.  Tuesday, Wednesday and  Thursday, he puts aside the  camera and goes to work  surveying for Larry Penonzek  Surveyors, working on projects such as Cliff Gilker Park.  The income he receives from  his pictures all goes back into  that half of his life.  It's paying off.  People call him to let him  know where to find certain  species, such as buzzards and  owls; his exposures are creeping toward displays at the  Sechelt Arts Centre and other  galleries, and in the picture  frames in people's houses.

I am not  a prude or moralist on this  issue but find a most disturbing element creeping into the  concept of 'exotic dancers' in  our neighbourhood. In a  quarter page ad in your paper  a few weeks ago, a scantily  clad woman peers out from  behind bars in a seductive  pose. This 'logo' is now appearing throughout the community on promotional  T-shirts.  This image of women is not  only tasteless and vulgar, it is  dangerous. The concept of a  female slave held against her  will for the purpose of sexual  exploitation by strangers is not  new. The 'Odalisque' or  harem girl was depicted by  dozens of romantic artists and  literature is littered with works  such as the Story of O, where a  woman is held in chains for  amusement and sexual exploitation.  The psychological underpinnings for this view of  women as 'imprisoned objects' are based not simply on  the fascination and wonder at  the complexity of the female  human psyche. There is close  at hand a fear, mistrust and  even unrecognized hatred of  women. That this frightening  psychological malady is  prevalent in our community is  demonstrated by the alarming  number  of battered  women  and the need throughout the  province for transition houses  where they might find shelter.  Like sexual abuse of  children, the victim is often  brought into dehumanizing  circumstances that are inescapable or, from their point  of view, undesirable. Like  most prostitutes, the woman  in the cage has 'chosen' to be  there because of social conditions, economic hardship, and  a history of exploitation  and/or abuse.  The 'emancipation' of  women is still very much an  issue for many who are confined by economic conditions or  imprisoned behind the bars of  a violent relationship. The  concept of 'women's rights'  and 'liberation of women'  becomes meaningless when we  still find the image of a woman  in a cage being used to promote and advertise.  As in the case of prostitution, laws and police and the  courts have little effect on the  problem. Social perceptions  and attitudes must change, i  urge your newspaper and the  Peninsula Hotel to stop promoting this vulgar imagery.  The charming beauty of the  nude female form, the artistic  expression of the body  through dance and music...  perhaps...but a woman in a  cage...NO!

Dear Nikki:  Your talent for producing  successful shows was certainly  demonstrated again this weekend. When the idea of a repeat  performance on the Sunday was  introduced as a fund raising  event for the Pender Harbour  Music Society, we were truly  delighted.  We would like to thank all  your performers for giving their  time and talents so generously.  We would like to thank you  for the great words of encouragement you gave to the  music society, for the wonderful  compliments you gave Pender  Nikki earns  more kudos  Editor:  Many, many thanks from  the co-ordinators of the Artisans Exhibition on Saturday  in the Sunnycrest Mall, Lilian  Kunstler, Gwen Robertson  and Carole Rubin, to the Mall  Association for permission to  exhibit their wares in the mall  and for the general atmosphere created by the five-  stores Fashion Show and the  Mexican Fiesta from the travel  agency.  It was an exciting day from  our viewpoint, from that of  the exhibitors we spoke to and  from the mall customers we  listened to. There was a  general hum of goodwill and  many expressed the opinion  that there should be much  more of this kind of diversion  to bring more people out to  enjoy themselves as they shop.  We would also like to thank  Reunion  Editor:  Roy Wilcox Elementary  School (formerly Whitesail  Elementary School) in Kitimat,  BC will be hosting their 25th  reunion in the fall of 1988 and  wish to invite all former staff,  students, or others connected  with the school since it's opening in 1963 to write giving us  their names and addresses for  inclusion on our mailing list.  If you are interested or know  the whereabouts of former staff  or students, please contact Reunion Committee, 7 Carlson  Street, Kitimat, B.C. V8C 1A9.  (Mrs.) Pat Bushaw  Secretary  Reunion Committee  the exhibitors for their good  nature and co-operation in  making this an event which all  agreed should be repeated.  Gwen Robertson  Harbour's very own big band  group, the Harbour Lights, and  for the promotion you gave to  the group's forth-coming  benefit events. (These being the  Gibsons Landing Theatre Project dance in Gibsons on  November 28, and the Pender  Harbour Music Society's  Christmas Ball in Pender Harbour on December 5).  Having the support of someone of your calibre and  stamina is a great honour. The  society offers you their sincere  appreciation and heart-felt  thanks.

On the one hand,  people of all nations proclaim not only their  readiness but their longing for peace and harmony, for an end to the harrowing apprehensions tormenting their daily lives. On the other,  uncritical assent is given to the proposition that  human beings are incorrigibly selfish and aggressive and thus incapable of erecting a social ���  system at once progressive and peaceful, dynamic and harmonious, a system giving free play  to individual creativity and initiative but based  on co-operation and reciprocity.  As the need for peace becomes more urgent,  this fundamental contradiction, which hinders i  its realization, demands a reassessment of the  assumptions upon which the commonly held  view of mankind's historical predicament is  based. Dispassionately examined, the evidence  reveals that such conduct, far from expressing  man's true self, represents a distortion of the  human spirit. Satisfaction on this point will  enable all people to set in motion constructive  social forces which, because they are consistent  with human nature, will encourage harmony  and co-operation instead of war and conflict.  To choose such a course is not to deny humanity's past but to understand it. The BahS'i  Faith regards the current world confusion and  calamitous condition in human affairs as a  natural phase in an organic process leading  ultimately and irresistibly to the unification of  the human race in a single social order whose  boundaries are those of the planet. The human  race, as a distinct, organic unit, has passed  through evolutionary stages analogous to the  stages of infancy and childhood in the lives of  its individual members, and is now in the culminating period of its turbulent adolescence  approaching its long-awaited coming of age.

Our special Electric Plus rate of 2.5 cents  per kilowatt-hour gives you electric heat for about  half what you would normally pay for firm  electricity. It can save you up to 50% on fuel if  you now heat with oil or propane, and even  more in some cases. The same combination of  comfort, convenience and savings is now  available for homes heated by wood, too.  Use our low-interest financing.  Converting to Electric Plus is easy with our  special financing at only 816%. It covers residential equipment and installation costs up to  $2,500, more than adequate for most homes.  It's available through contractors on approved  credit and can be conveniently repaid on  your Hydro bill.  How Electric Plus works for you.  \bu purchase electricity at the special rate  whenever surplus hydroelectric energy  is available. \bu keep your fuel-fired heating  system - oil, propane, wood or coal - as a  back-up for times when surplus electricity is  interrupted. We will limit interruptions to a  maximum of only 120 days between now  and March 1991.  \bu qualify for Electric Plus by wiring for  a new meter, which we will install, and having  back-up system which uses fuel stored on  your property. Customers now heating with  natural gas are not eligible.  The special low Electric Plus rate of  2.5 cents a kilowatt-hour will stay until March  1991. Even after that, surplus interruptible  hydro will cost substantially less  than firm electricity.  Regular customers now using  electric heat can also get the low  Electric Plus rate by installing fuel-  fired back-up systems.  Same low rate for commercial customers.  You can get Electric Plus for business use, too.  Switching to Electric Plus from oil or propane  can result in substantial savings on space, water  and process heating. As with residential  Electric Plus, you keep your fuel-fired heating  system as a back-up. And you get the same  special rate of 2.5 cents for the first 8,000  kilowatt-hours a month. If you use more, the  rate reduces lo 1.8 cents. We have special  financing for commercial customers.  Call a contractor today.  The sooner you act, the sooner your Electric  Plus savings start adding up. So call your local  electrical or heating contractor today for an  estimate. Or call your nearest Hydro office for a  free analysis of your potential savings with  Electric Plus.  *    4 I  3  ]  ButrtePhs  ffeSCfin Hwing'Sy,  Hectric Plus  our innovative heating program  ��RCHydro  ^"nera/otfldf  '��Wp>oudx��se  Ihchrsdua/fotf  ./**"�� \v-i*m  �����f tome savings  ��BCfr}tiro  3!

Gentle iconoclast  Continued from page 11  result in The Origin of Species.  In 1939, he married and began  to raise a family. Shortly after,  he began to be plagued by a  recurrent illness that would  make him a semi-invalid for the  rest of his life. It is presumed to  have been Chagas' disease, a  chronic tropical infection, contracted during his travels. The  ailment made him a virtual  recluse but did not deter his  work.  It took Darwin 20 years but,  in 1959, his icon-shattering findings were published. The  Origin of Species flew in the  face of all established.dogma  and provoked thunclbcous  outrage among theologians.  The sickly inoffensive naturalist  was called everything from a  madman to the Anti-Christ.  Appalled by the fury of his  detractors, Darwin became  more reclusive than ever and  refused to defend himself in  public debate.  Fortunately, there were a few  clear-thinkers   around   who  recognized the validity of Darwin's theories. Foremost among  them was Thomas Henry Huxley, England's foremost  zoologist.  In a monumental debate at  the British Association for the  Advancement of Science at Oxford University, Huxley took on  Bishop Samuel Wilberforce,  one of Darwin's chief detractors  and demolished his simplistic  arguments. The tide began to  turn in Darwin's favour from  this point.  Charles Darwin lived to see  himself exonerated and his  theories largely accepted. In  1971, he published a second  book The Descent of Man, that  served to expand upon and buttress the initial study. He died in  1881 with his life's work complete.  The whole fascinating story is  well told by Walter Karp in  Charles Darwin and The Origin  of Species (Harper and Row),  and embellished with many fine  illustrations and photographs.

Continued from page 1  and Gibsons to get their reactions.  Sechelt has already notified  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District that it will be opting out  of the EDfc for 1988, but Egan  told the Coast News that even if  that happens, the EDC will have  te-e��a#nue to include Sechelt in  their consultations for economic  development in the region.  Sechelt's   representative,  Joyce Kolibas, had persuaded  Mayor Bud Koch and members  ' of Sechelt council to attend the  ~, meeting, but by the time the  commission reached discussion  of the consultant's report, most  of the Sechelt council had left.  "     The exception was alderman  elect   Nancy  MacLarty,   who  commented later that the report  ,; appeared to have a lot in com-  * mon with a marriage counsel-  -* lor's function.  That, Brian Rubin told the  Coast News, was exactly what  ' was needed. "It didn't recom-  '   mend   any   earth-shattering  '   changes," he said. "Like a mar-  '   riage counsellor, it recommended some new alternative ways of  "~  handling   things   and   com-  ;   municating."  Rubin liked the report and  stated that the section dealing  ;   with the services that should be  .   provided by the EDC and sug-  .' gestions of how to carry them  out  was,   "worth  every cent  spent on the report."  Once the report has  been  .   amended to everyone's satisfac-  '   tion, the first order of business  '   for the EDC will be to hire an  '' Economic Development Officer  ^ and support staff to carry out  . the recommendations. But the  new direction should cost tax-  ' payers   almost   one-third   less  than in the past.  A proposed budget for 1988  brought forward earlier in the  '; meeting sets the projected cost  for   the   EDC   function   at  '  $150,000 in 1988, a considerable  drop from the $224,000 budget  C in  1987. The reason for the  '���} decrease, according to Maurice  I Egan, is that 1987 was a year  ; when a lot of ground work was  done in the way of studies. 1988  "' will be a year of acting on the  information, which will be a lot  less costly.  New forest  policy may  affect us  The provincial government's  new forest policy, which was  released in September, could  have a major impact on the  Sunshine Coast and the  Forestry Advisory Committee  of the regional district wants to  insure that the impact will be a  positive one. At their meeting  on November 18, the committee  reviewed the new policy and  discussed the possible local  repercussions of its implementation.  Of most immediate concern  was the government's plan to  increase the cutting allotment  for small logging operations  by five percent. While they  agreed in principle with the increase, committee members  expressed concern about the  location of the new leases. The  most accessible timber is in the  Elphinstone area, where the  Forest Service has a 10 year  cutting plan.  Under   the   current   plan,  30,000 metres of timber could  be removed each year over a  ten year period, enabling the  trees in the area to reach a  good size before they are cut.  Ray Gisa of the Forest Service explained that the current  rate of cutting guarantees a  steady supply of timber, cut by  a consistent  number  of loggers,   thereby   preventing   a  'boom and bust' situation in  local   employment.    If   the  amount of timber taken out is  increased to 60,000 metres per  year, which will be possible  under the new policy, the area  could be logged off in five  years or less.  Silviculture has also been hit  under    the   new   policy.  Previously   the   provincial  government   was   responsible  for   reforestation,   supplying  the seedlings and crediting the  cost of planting against stum-  page fees. Companies will now  be completely responsible for  replanting their timber leases.  The committee is drafting a  letter   to   the   Minister   of  Forests   and   Lands,   Dave  Parker, to inform him of their  concerns  at  the local  level.  Special emphasis will be placed on maintaining the management plan for the Elphinstone  area.  off our regular price of 29  We've DONE IT AGAIN...
