 Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, BC V8V 1X4  87.6  Sechelts prepare  Twelve graduate from  first aquaculture course  Twelve students graduated  from the Sechelt Native  Aquaculture Course amidst resounding applause from college  faculty, family and friends last  Friday. Instructor Richard  Burke told the audience that  although he had taught many  Indian bands, this group had  been the most impressive in his  career.  He related a story of when  Willard Joe had gone through a  painful operation on a Thursday and shown up at class on  the Monday, refusing to go  home although he was obviously in great pain.  "That kind of performance,"  he said, "was exhibited by the  entire class. That demands that  an instructor perform to the  best of his ability."  The concept for the program  was put together last spring by  an advisory committee, council  member Ben Pierre told the  Coast News. They met with  representatives from Capilano  College and designed a course  that would combine academic  upgrading, hands-on training in  the actual operation and  maintenance of an aquaculture  facility, and meet the needs of  both students and the Sechelt  Band. They then took the proposal to Canada Employment  and Immigration who agreed to  sponsor it.  The course was 25 weeks in  length with 10 weeks allocated  to upgrading academic standards to college level. The  students were also required to  write and send resumes to all  aquaculture operations in the  area as part of the course.  In addressing the graduates,  Chief Tom Paul said, "We have  so many qualified professionals  around here now that we'll have  to find a way to put them to  work. As soon as the provincial  negotiations are completed  that's what we're going to do."  He   elaborated   later   when  speaking with the Coast News.  "We expect that the band will  become involved in some way  either with aquaculture or more  salmonid enhancement. Once  the provincial legislation goes  through, we can seriously think  about doing our own projects  on our own land on the Coast  here. We'll begin all sorts of  economic development projects  then."  making  The Sunshine Coast Environmental Protection Project  (SCEPP) realised another of its  goals last week with the completion of pesticide-free clearing on  two research plots for B.C.  Hydro.  Hydro contracted girdling expert Michael Conway-Brown to  execute the trial plots, after  negotiation with SCEPP last  Spring. Areas completed to date  are an acre up the Burrard Inlet,  and an acre near Squamish.  The research will continue  with girdling on the Sunshine  Coast, and in the Mission area  in the fall to test the effectiveness of the technique when  applied at different times of the  year.  "We're optimistic. It's a real  step forward," said SCEPP  spokesperson Marlene Stephens. "Although its taken some  time, B.C. Hydro has been  quite co-operative in this venture. We hope that regional  branches of B.C.F.S., MacBlo,  CIP and B.C. Hydro will follow  the example being set here in the  Golf Club hosts  for Hansen  The Sunshine Coast Golf Club will be hosting the Rick  Hansen Golf Tournament next Sunday, March 29 at 1 pm.  The club will be donating all green fees to the Man in Motion  Fund.

Birthday party  Longtime Gibsons resident, the irrepressible Miss Mary  Steele of 1350 Bay Road, is marking her 85th birthday on  Wednesday, March 25.  Miss Steele will have an Open House for friends and well-  wishers from 2 to 4 pm Wednesday.  Liberal leader?  Gordon Wilson told local reporters last week that he will be  officially announcing his candidacy for the provincial leadership of the Liberal Party on March 26.  Wilson entered politics less than two years ago, winning the  directorship of Area A on the Regional Board. Last fall he  ran as Liberal candidate in this riding, coming in third.  group  progress  Sechelt Forest District."  On other environmental  fronts, SCEPP/B.C. CAP  representative Carole Rubin is  in Ottawa this week for the National Conference on the new  Environmental Protection Act.  "We're concerned about  many aspects of the proposed  Act," she said. "The title gives  one a false sense of security,  when one realises how little the  legislation actually covers. We  also believe that even the most  air-tight, comprehensive legislation is only as good as the  political and financial power  behind it, to enforce it. We'll be  lobbying very hard for that type  of power for Environment  Canada."  Rubin will be filing a report  for the Coast News on the conference when she returns to the  Coast next week.

Soon to join-this growing  company is a'young man from  Gibsons named Jeff Mulcaster  whose own work in molded  plasticine figure animation impressed president Will Vinton  enough to offer him a job as an  animator.  Though he will have to wait  until next fall for his and his girl  friend's US visas to come  through, Mulcaster is slated to  begin working in the company's  short films division.  Thinking back to how he got  started in animated film making, Mulcaster remembers, "I  always loved animation, particularly things like the Disney  shows and King Kong. I knew  how it was done when I was  four years old."  In the early '70's, he became  an avid watcher of a weekly  KCTS Channel 9 show called  International Animation  Festival. On one of these he saw  a four minute piece involving  plasticine animation. "It blew  me a way," he remembers, "It  was 100 times better than Gum-  by and Pokey and became my  favourite kind of animation."  His first attempt to experiment with his fascination came  when he was 12 and had just  moved to Gibsons. With his  father's 8mm camera proped on  a table top, Mulcaster took on  the tedious task of shooting  single frame movements ujbf  match box cars. The results  were terrible, he remembers,  "they moved so fast, you could  hardly see them."  His next "efforts were to wait  until after graduating from  Elphinstone. Rick Underwood,  a friend who was also interested  in film inspired him to get involved again. "If he could do it,  I could too," Mulcaster remembers.  He then teamed up with  another friend, Bruce Northway  and together they animated onto film such items as pool balls,  coffee cups and toy cars. In one  segment, they made a towel  move and act like a snake.  Up to now, Mulcaster had  made things move on film, but  hadn't yet told a complete story  with a beginning, middle and  end. His first attempt featured a  pair of empty sandals that were  being chased by a wooden viking in the style of the Roadrun-  ner cartoons. At the episode's  end a pile of rocks set by the  viking tumbled down on the  sandals, destroying them.

Mayor Bud Koch told Jar-  dine that council would study  the figures.

Aldermen agreed that traffic  coming from the arena tend to  speed at that location and the  stop signs located on the hill  force them to slow down.  However, they did agree to  the recommendation to install a  stop sign at the end of Ocean  Avenue at Pebble Crescent.  A recommendation by the  Public Works Committee to install sidewalks on Dolphin  Street and Trail Avenue was  referred to the Finance Committee. A further recommendation to install a crosswalk with  wheelchair access in the middle  of the block on Trail Avenue  between Cowrie and Teredo  drew questions of safety from  Alderman Ken Short.  Council passed a motion at  the meeting to write a letter of  support for the Eileen Glassford  Foundation's Performing Arts  Centre project.

Whilst  the industrial giants have been reacting to the recent recession by systematically reducing their work forces, new jobs  have continued to be created by small and medium sized  firms.  That makes all the more regretable the measure in the  recent B.C. budget which reduced the Employment Tax  Credit introduced in just 1985, through which a small portion of the costs of payroll taxes for the small business  could be refunded.  Further it would appear that the reduction will not go to  reduce the provincial deficit, but will be directed to the  large mining and forest companies who have long enjoyed  the government's support and attention.  It would appear that if the small business sector of the  economy continues to be an electoral segment that the provincial government can take for granted, its legitimate  needs will continue to be neglected.  Hansen's return  The return of Rick Hansen to his native province after  two years of world travelling was justly a cause for prov-  nical celebration.  His feats of spirit and body in propelling himself around  the world on behalf of spinal research is an awesome  tribute to the man and to the environment which produced  him.  The province of B.C. can marvel at the fact that Terry,  Fox, Steve Fonyo and Rick Hansen, all of whom have  shown us vividly the courage and the capability of the handicapped, are products of this province and can be proud  of the fart.  Hansen's journey is far from over. A torturous way still  lies ahead of him as he zigs and zags through this mountainous province before wrapping up his odyssey. What he  has already accomplished is the stuff of legend, and the  Coast News joins the rest of the province, and indeed the  world, in saluting him as he nears home.  Hope possible?  Maybe, just maybe, after the travesty of American  foreign policy in recent weeks, we might just be on the  verge of some realistic international re-appraisals.  In the United States, President Reagan's bully boys are  discredited and in the USSR Gorbachev, desperate to improve his economy, seems trying hard to lessen the spending on armaments. Dare we hope for progress?  4mmm Was & #m::C0mf VffWS  5 YEARS AGO  Chairman of B.C. Ferries, Stu Hodgson, confirms that  the introduction of a jumbo ferry to the Sunshine Coast  run will probably mean loss of jobs from the two ferries  now servicing the Coast.  Construction of the new breakwater in Gibsons Harbour has begun. However, Mayor Lorraine Goddard  reports that nothing "has been signed by the village" in  connection with the new municipal marina.  Mayor Bud Koch threatens to take the dispute between the Village of Sechelt and the SCRD over the  ownership of the sewer system directly to Municipal Affairs Minister Bill VanderZalm.  10 YEARS AGO  The removal of the Queen of Tsawassen from the  Langdale run in the winter months, leaving only the  Queen of New Westminster in service, has ferry workers  concernd. The removal of one ship means the loss of 28  jobs, and the loss of an annual payroll of a quarter of a  million dollars.  20 YEARS AGO  Since May of 1965 many obstacles have been overcome by the Gibsons-Port Mellon pool committee. The  pool, to cost $22,500 could be constructed and in use by  July of this year (1967) and covered by the fall.  30 YEARS AGO  George Jackson, 68, of the former logging firm of  Burns and Jackson died of a heart attack while returning from a bull sale in Kamloops.  George, along with his brother Al Jackson who wrote  Loggers' Tales and Robert Burns, village clerk in Gibsons, formed the Burns and Jackson company which  was sold to MacMillan Bloedel.  40 YEARS AGO  Gibsons School Board has approved a new four-room  school for Madeira Park. The building will have a basement with a kitchen and community room for children  and parents.  T.R. Godfrey of Gibsons has purchased the 42-foot  tug MS Atagi No. 3 for general towing and pulpwood  operations.

This sea  pen contains about 25,000 14 month old coho fry; they are being  transferred into a clean net. Net changes occur up to twice a month,  depending on dirt accumulation. Dirt plugs up the small net openings causing a reduced water flow through the sea pen. The coho  fry from this pen are expected to be released into Sechelt Inlet in  late May of this year. The coho's migratory range has been  reported to extend from the northern tip of California to Alaska  and they are expected to return in 1989 to spawn in one of the three  creeks located near the sea pen facility. Sixty thousand Chinook fry  from the Capilano Hatchery are being transferred to the sea pens at  the Sechelts' hatchery site this week. A period of imprinting occurs  when the fry are put into the sea pens. The fry absorb the chemical  content of the local waters. This enables the salmon to home-in and  return to Sechelt Inlet creeks and spawn when they have completed  their migration cycle. The Sechelt Indian Band salmon enhancement project was started in 1979 and, depending on fish specie and  growth, is capable of raising up to 400,000 salmon fry.  ���Kent Sheridan photo  A minor victory  I do not think that the ivy was  malevolent. There was a trellis,  and the ivy had grown up and  over it to make a picturesque arbour. A climbing rose had twined among the ivy and fought its  way to sunlight and in June  crowned the piece with June  splendour of rose bloom against  the crouching dark green of the  ivy background.  The hands and mind whicfi^  had planned this entranceway  had long since left the scene  leaving behind an apparently  immortal coil which flourished  and grew until the trellis which  supported it was rotting and invisible underneath.  It had not gone entirely  neglected during my tenure as  house-holder. A few years ago  my friend Steve and I had  beaten it back to the point  where it was possible to enter  the yard almost erect. But that  was a few years ago, and the  weight of the foliage was  pushing what can only be  described as a knot of airborne  roots lower and lower.  I had endured years of teasing from those who entered  beneath the oppressive knot,  but was content with the privacy  it afforded and the pictures-  queness it definitely lent the  scene.  On a rainy recent Wednesday, however, it suddenly occurred to me as I habitually  ducked under it to gain entrance  to the yard that I was almost  bent double in the process and  that something would have to  be done.  So it was at 5:30 on a rainy  evening I took pruning saw in  hand and addressed myself to  the business of coming to terms  with the 40 year veteran of this  rain forest land.  It could have been better  planned, I readily admit. The  task was considerable I discovered as I fought my way  rclose enough to locate the  tethering stalks which held the  mass of foliage and entwined  creepers in place.  But man acts, it seems to me,  when the spirit moves him. A  casual exploration became a  mud-spattered, drenched and  swearing frenzy as I sawed and  hacked like a man possessed.  I was an hour into my task,  the light was failing, when my  hand slipped on the handle of  the saw, up and over the blade.  I withdrew from the sagging  foliage sufficiently to inspect  my hand and found myself gazing at a mass of blood and mud.  At" that moment I heard a car  pull up and it was Fran, heavily-  laden with the week's groceries.  From opposite sides of the arbour and invisible to each other  we took stock of the situation.  All I had succeeded in doing  was lowering the impenetrable  mass about four feet so that  from the garden gate outside  Fran couldn't see the house 10  feet away and I, inside, couldn't  see her.  The rain fell steadily. I was  drenched and tired and wounded but rest was out. of the question. Another desperate assault  on one side enabled us to lever  the foliage back about a foot so  that entry could be gained with  the supplies.  It was another week before,  healed in body and spirit I was  fit   enough   to   separate   the  monster from the supports it  had long outgrown and clear the  entranceway to my house. The  siege of ivy was over.  A small victory in the history  of man, perhaps, but one inept  handyman gains access to his  dwelling now with head held  high at last, and with newfound confidence and mastery  regards the laurel and the cedar,  splendid and unchallenged in  the yard, with a confident and  measuring eye.

Malcolm Lowry  Coast Lines  Dogged determination  by Nancy MacLarty  As a child, living in the city, I  always dreamed of having a  large pet. Until I was seven, I  prayed fervently each Christmas  for a pony. Even though we lived in an apartment I somehow  believed that some Christmas  morning I would find the pony,  and if I were extremely lucky a  cart, left under the tree. How  we were to feed or stable this  animal never entered my mind.  However, I was certainly ready  to share my room with it!  The pony didn't materialize,  so after age seven I began praying for a large dog. By the time I  was 10 I still didn't have one, so  I decided to take matters into  my own hands. One Mother's  Day I presented my Mom with a  six week old pup. It had been  free for the asking, probably  because it was half Saint Bernard. Even at six weeks it took  all my 10 year old strength to  carry it, complete with bow and  card, up the stairs to our second  floor apartment. To this day I  still suffer from the trauma of  having had a parent who gave  away her Mother's Day present  to the milkman whose brother  just happened to have a farm.  Well, after many cats, birds  and other small pets, I moved to  the beautiful Sunshine Coast.  The stage was set. I had a large  lot, a large house and, shortly  after moving here, I acquired a  large dog. Sandy is a mixture of  golden lab, golden retriever,  doberman and shepherd. I rescued her from a shed in Lund  where she had been abandoned  with eight siblings.  It didn't take long to  housebreak her, but she unfortunately had a tendency towards  lunging while walking on leash.  Lunging was not too much of a  problem until she tipped the  scales at over 50 pounds. After  that your arm tends to be wrenched from its socket. So I decided that dog obedience was the  answer.  Each Spring Magus Kennels,  near Gibsons, holds dog obe  dience classes. Their aim is not  so much to teach the dog as to  teach the owner. As Barbara  "Walkees" Woodhouse says,  "there are no bad dogs...".  Barbara hasn't met Sandy.  We attended the classes  faithfully, did our homework  and yet when the final test came  we failed...miserably, 15 points  out of a possible 100. The only  good thing about the whole experience was knowing that  about 10 other dogs, and  owners, failed too. Probably  because while they were in the  "down stay" position Sandy  decided to try to play with  them. Even obedient dogs can  only take so much.  But now, after a long winter  of practice, Sandy and I are  ready to try again. She now sits  on command (most of the  time), stays (as long as she's on  leash), and heels (as long as  there are no distractions such as  blowing leaves, squirrels or  other dogs).  So Magus Kennels, if you're  ready, so are we. You'll be happy to know that Sandy doesn't  lunge anymore, she just tends to  drag me behind her. I know that  Sandy is smart enough to pass  the course and would have passed it last year if I had been  allowed to give her cookies as  rewards. Unfortunately dog  obedience means just that...unquestioning obedience without  cookies.  Anyway, even if we don't  pass again this year, there's still  that glimmer of hope that at  least one other pooch in the  class will be worse than mine.  Then I can be the one to smile  knowingly and shake my head  in disdain in the direction of the  unruly student and owner.  But I'm ready, and so is Sandy. We're determined that this  year we're going to graduate.  There's only one thing that can  stop us. The chance that Magus,  after reading that Sandy and I  are returning to try again, may  decide to cancel dog obedience  classes forever. v^iTmmm��-  Coast News, March 23,1987  Het\ f didmT k��Jou)  X* Mot!

Dear Sir:  Thanks for your reply to my  letter of February 6, 1987, but  where are the answers to my  questions?  May I quote from your letter:  "In your comparison of fares  on B.C. Ferries, they must  recover the cost of ther operation with a combination of provincial subsidy and fares. In the  case of the interior ferries no  fare is paid for passage, the entire cost of their operation is  recovered from the taxpayer in  the form of a provincial subsidy. " End of quote.  To refresh your memory, I  enclose a copy of my letter with  the questions that I asked you to  answer:  1) What is the taxpayers cost  in the form of subsidy to carry a  car from Horseshoe Bay to  Langdale?  2) What is the cost for the  same on Arrow Lakes and  Kootenay Lake?  3) What is the subsidy for  each vehicle using the Coquihalla?  4) By what reasoning do you  justify the long hours of service  on all the fare-free interior ferries while ours are restricted to  two eight hour shifts?  I must stress again that the  people of the Sunshine Coast  are not against the fares as such,  but at the inadequate service  Fund  raising  Editor:  March 28 and 29 have been  set aside for our first annual  community-wide fund raising  campaign for the Sunshine  Coast Community Services  Society.  We are making this appeal to  you as people in business on the  Sunshine Coast. Like you, we  serve our community, offering  services for the past 12 years.  You know what we do: food for  those in need, refuge and  counselling for women and their  children, transportation, educational and social services of  many kinds; for people of all  ages.  Despite our funding sources,  there is never enough to support  the needed work we do. Community Services depends on  donations from people like you.  We invite individuals and  groups to become members and  to donate to this essential  organization at any time during  the year.  This drive, however, is  special. Please be generous.  Valerie J.

Joe P. Kiene  Editor:  It is important that you correct a significant error made in  your last issue relating to the increase in the School District  budget.  You have compared this  year's total budget with last  year's operating budget. The  difference between the total  budget and the operating  budget is that the total budget  contains $223,700 of non-  shareable capital expenditures  and $1,721,215 of debt services.  In short, you are about  $2,000,000 in error by comparing dissimilar budget totals.  This year's total budget exceeds last year's total budget by  $1,359,450. Even that is not a  totally meaningful number to  put before the general public,  because the biggest factor in the  budget is the government calculated fiscal framework, in  which the provincial government pay at least 55 per cent of  the cost.  It forms the basis of the  board's budget decisions, and  the fiscal framework is up approximately half a million  dollars over last year, which brings the truly important difference down to about  $850,000.  This is the difference attributable to specific board decisions made at budget time  where the entire cost will be  borne by the local taxpayer. It is  still a substantial sum, but it's a  great deal less than the over  $3,000,000 which your last  week's report erroneously indicated.  Please remind your reporters  that I am always available to  check through the technical  content of any of their articles  for accuracy before they go to  press.

The art auction, featuring  work of Sam Black, Robert  Clothier, Joan Warne and other  talented residents of the Sunshine Coast, will take place on  Sunday, March 29, in The  Mariner's Restaurant in Gibsons Landing.  What is described as "the  most complete collection of  Sunshine Coast art works ever  offered" will be available for  viewing from 11 am to 2 pm  with the auction of these  treasures taking place between  2:30 and 5 pm.  Last weekend, theatre manager Richard Schick of Richmond Gateway Theatre was invited to meet with theatre architects Paul Merrick and Mike  Huggins, President Rai Purdy  and   other   directors   of  the  threatre project society in a  meeting held in the Omega  Restaurant.  Schick had been involved in  the construction of the Richmond Gateway Theatre and had  been extensively quoted in the  editorial column of The Press to  the effect that the financial  figures being utilised for the  theatre project were not  realistic. Schick was shown a  copy of the editorial which appeared last December.  "I'm a little surprised," said  Schick. "I wasn't aware that I  was being quoted for a  newspaper. I don't think you  can compare the Richmond  Gateway Theatre, which is  largely what I was speaking of  since it's the one I'm acquainted  with, with any theatre you  would build here. There's $1  million worth of theatre equipment alone in the Richmond  theatre, it has a balcony, and a  payroll of 24 people, eight of  them on a year-round basis at  an average salary of $22,000 a  year.  In the course of the meeting  lasting several hours Schick said  that given the nature of the project, the $1.5 million estimate  used by the Gibsons Landing  Theatre Project was entirely  realistic.  Architect Mike Huggins  pointed out that the size of  theatre being planned for Gibsons was 300 seats and wooden  frame construction was planned  and possible. From a community theatre background in Vernon's Powerhouse Theatre,  Huggins pointed out that in its  20 years of successful existence  the Powerhouse Theatre in Vernon had never hired anyone except a janitor to clean up.  Key to the economic running  of the Powerhouse Theatre was  what Huggins described as a  "direct marriage with the school  system."  Drama teachers use the facility and train their students in its  use. The result is you have  voluntary community expertise  always coming along.  Richard Schick said he had  visited Gibsons the week  previous on his own initiative to  take a look at the proposed site  of the project.  "It's a wonderful site, a  wonderful project," said Shick.  The balance of the meeting  was taken up in technical  refinements of the plans and in  discussion between Schick and  the project's architects.  Don't forget the art auction,  Sunday, March 29 at The  Mariner's.  ;    In celebrating the 25th Canadian Anniversary of United Church Women, 20 charter members were  guests of honour at a luncheon in Gibsons United Church last Wednesday. ���Fran Bumside photo  MORTAGES AND BASIC  INFORMATION  FOR  THE FIRST HOME  BUYER  Sponsored by  CANADIAN IMPERIAL  BANK OF  COMMERCE  with  ��� Russ Crum  ��� Pebbles Realty  ��� Anderson Realty  DATE: Tuesday, March 31  PLACE: Elphinstone Secondary -  Textile Room  TIME: 7:30-9:30 pm  Everyone Welcome!

His first camera purchase  was a deluxe Super 8mm and a  few years later, a 16mm. During  this period, he also attended a  Capilano College course on  basic film making, his only formal education on the subject.  Mulcaster has now completed  three short films: Wizard a pin-  ball action sequence; Midnight  Snack which shows the transmutation of a warewolf; and  Godzeta's Monster Workout a  take-off on his girl friend's  name and occupation that incorporates his first truly original  character. These films have  been entered in the Great Canadian Shorts Contest sponsored  by First Choice.  At the end of his first interview with Will Vinton Proudc-  tion, Mulcaster was given a box  of plasticine and asked to create  a character in that company's  style. The result, Conan the  Vegetarian, so impressed Vinton that it now stands in the  company's display room among  their other original creations.  Mulcaster, who has been  working for the Town of Gibsons as a labourer, or as he likes  to put it, as a 'drainage  engineer', is grateful to three  local people in particular who  have helped and given him encouragement. They include  Mike Clement who used to own  Kits Camera, Tom Sheldon who  produces underwater slide  shows, and Steve Sleep, program manager for community  television's Channel 11.  As a parting gesture to the  Sunshine Coast and as a way of  saying thank you to Steve Sleep,  Mulcaster is creating a station  ID for Channel 11 that uses not  only his Godzeta creation, but  features Godzeta's own inspiration, Zeta. The station ID will  begin airing near the end of  April.  What started long ago as a  facination for Jeff Mulcaster  has developed through hard and  persistent work into first an interesting hobby and now an exciting career.

Terry and the Music Man will  be back at the Legion on Saturday night with his popular selection of recordings. Members  and guests welcome.

Now all we need are some contestants!  LIBRARY ADDITION  Plans are coming along for  the library addition. The new  part will extend along the back  of the Post Office with more insulation and siding added to  match the new materials. Mary  O'Brian, Harry Almond and  Tony Quick are heading the  building committee with a lot of  help on the architectural aspects  from John Davies.

The last two weeks have been  busy ones for your overall  building committee. The  building project branch of the  group have made some changes  to the existing plans which have  necessitated several meetings  and consultations for confirmation.  Hopefully these changes will  not seriously affect our proposed "sod turning" in May. The  fund-raising section of the committee are pressing on with their  efforts.  THE 69'ERS  The next two weeks will be  active ones for the singing  group, starting off with a 7 pm  engagement at Shorncliffe on  March 26.  We will be singing at the Parthenon after dinner on March  28. Past performances have  always proved to be lots of fun  for the dinner guests as well as  the group themselves. We  follow up on April 1 with a 2  pm engagement at the Edmonds  Community Centre in Vancouver.  On April 3 at 7 pm we join a  variety of entertainers in  Madeira Park. And last but not  least, our contribution to Nikki  Weber's 'Night to Remember'  at our hall on Sunday night,  April 5 at 8 pm.  Tickets are limited for this  concert and are available from  the usual sources as listed in last  week's column.

Your participation will be appreciated.  SPRING TEA REMINDER  Our craft people have been  busy each Thursday morning at  the hall and, I dare say, quite a  few hours also at home, preparing for this major fund raising  event which takes place each  spring.  This year it falls on April 4 at  1:30   pm   in   the   hall.   The  novelties and craft items, will  dominate the afternoon.  RENTALSMAN  Micky Cornwell will unfortunately be giving up his  volunteer duties as rentalsman  for the hall at the end of the  month. President Gerry is asking for one of our members living in fairly close proximity to  the hall to volunteer for this  committee chairmanship.  Please call Gerry at 886-3728.  Garden  notes  by Marguerite  Pioneer Park gardens with its  splash of colour reminds us spring has arrived. It is time to sow  sweet peas outdoors.  They like the cool weather to  germinate in a trench first filled  with well matured compost.  Divide perennials if needed,  and prune off dead flowers on  forsythia, feed rhubarb with ar-  ronium sulphate or liquid fertilizer.  Prior to planting your  vegetables cover the ground  with plastic which makes the  soil warmer, leave a few days,  then sow your early peas,  parsnips, carrots, onions, lettuce, spinach, chard, cauliflower, etc. Put plastic back and  keep a watchful eye for shoots  to appear.  Remove plastic and mulch  spoiled hay or grass cuttings  around shoots which keeps  weeds down.  I personally have followed  the 'Ruth Stout method" of  mulching for a year now, and  this method works. It encourages the earthworms to  work for you, and needs no  watering.  If you have space and can  plant a little extra vegetable  seed, surplus produce could  assist the managers of the Gibsons Food Bank to help those  folk who need it and it would be  very much appreciated later on.  Thank you.  NOTICE!  ARE YOU INTERESTED IN THE  LOYAL ORDER OF MOOSE?  PLEASE ATTEND OPEN MEETING  Slide Presentation  Place: Senior Citizen Hall,  Sechelt  Date:    March 28, 1987 (Sat.)

All but three of these  are from the States, and of  those, two are from Saskatchewan and one from B.C.  ;   The unique item about the  Capilano College's Elderhostel  is the fact the people are billet-  ted in homes as opposed to staying at a campus.  *   There will be a meeting of the  hosts and those who think they  might like to become hosts at  tapilano College in Sechelt on  Monday, March 23 at 7 pm.  ���   Who   can   participate?  Elderhostel programs are open  to anyone who is age 60 or over,  or the spouse or companion of  an age 60 plus. Now it is too late  jto sign up for the two courses  being   provided  by   Capilano  College, but as a host, the opportunity for you to take part is  open.  Meet active, intellectually  curious people who are adventuresome like you. Phone April  or Diane at Capilano College,  885-9310 for more information  on how to become a host. If you  can help in some way, the advisory group would be glad to  put you onto a way you may  help.  Last year the people found  the residents of the area very  friendly and this definitely added to the pleasure of their visit.

While minor changes occurred during the scrutiny of  various categories, the only portion of the $5,601,041 budget  which the committee asked for  further justification on was  $15,600 allocated to Econbmjc  Development Commission expenses.  Administrator Larry Jardine  agreed to obtain the rationale  behind the figure and give it to  the two municipalities by Monday in order that both councils  could examine it in preparation  '.. for a final vote on the budget at  this ..Thursday's   Regional  'District meeting.

At the  March 10 meeting, Gibsons  Planning Committee passed a  recommendation that trees on  Franklin Road be topped tok  30 foot height. p'  The written request to have  the trees shortened came from  Joy Maxwell, Committee  Chairman Maxwell's wife, and  accordingly he absented himself  when the vote was taken. But  when Mayor Diane Strom appeared at the site on Friday,  angry citizens asked why other  residents in the neighbourhood  weren't consulted.  Before Mayor Strom arrived  on the scene, one tree had lost  its top 30 feet, but a second tree  will keep its top branches until  the issue is reconsidered.  Barb Pinkney, who lives next  door to the park claims that  Mrs. Maxwell made the request  to the Planning Committee  because needles and branches  from the trees were falling on  her roof.  Speaking for a group who arrived on the scene, protesting  the cutting she said, "We are  extremely upset that the town  has allowed the decimation of a  town park, because the adjacent  property owner doesn't like  things falling on his roof, and  that this was decided without  any input from other  residents."  Joy Maxwell told the Coast  News reporter that residents on  Cochrane Road had cut down  six trees without any permission. However, when branches  falling from the nearby trees  blocked up her eavestroughs she  proceeded in a perfectly legal  manner with her application  and received a work permit. She  stated that having followed all  the proper procedures, she  shouldn't be penalized because  her husband is on the village  council.

Coast News, March 23,1987  Foreshore question  at Gibsons Counci  ��� Issues regarding an application for a foreshore lease on  Gibsons' waterfront, the role of  council in the Economic Development Committee (EDC), and  selective pool policy dominated  the Gibsons Council meeting  last week.  Some confusion arose over  the application for a foreshore  lease with private moorage on  the Gibsons waterfront adjacent  to the Omega restaurant.  In keeping with Town of Gibsons policy, no new leases are to  be granted or renewed unless  they comply with specific  restrictions. The question of  whether or not a float and  dilapidated existing wharf were  already legal, or how long they  had been there, elicited conflicting responses from Alderman  Norm Peterson and Town Planner Rob Buchan.  The issue of the lease determines greatly the site's property  value. A decision was deferred  until the next planning meeting,  when more information would  be available.  Alderman Bob Maxwell expressed concern over the  perceived role of Gibsons Council in the EDC, as well as toward  delays in the completion of an  economic study by the commission.  ' He stated that council was  not just going along for the ride  and when queried defined their  role as "strong influence".  Full voting power in deliberations was demanded and Mayor  Strom added that a say in hiring  would be necessary, stating that  the hiring of a new economic  commissioner should be the job  of the Gibsons and Sechelt  councils.  The commission's deliberations were to be regarded as  recommendations only.  A phantom policy allowing  town employees to swim free at  the Gibsons Pool was moved  discontinued. It is unsure who  was responsible for creating the  policy.  Pool employees' family  members who contribute free  maintenance to the pool should  not be affected by this change.  Mayor Strom suggested the fabrication of free passes to  eliminate confusion.  In other council business,  disappointment was expressed  over the refusal of an Expo  Legacy grant involving work to  the northerly extension of the  seawaik, and resulting in a cost  to taxpayers of approximately  $30,000 to repair damage sustained over the winter.  June was declared awareness  month for Tourette's Syndrome, and approval of a door-  to-door solicitation day (March  28) for the Lifeboat Society was  given.  Also, Mayor Strom formulated a policy pertaining to  trees growing on Gibsons property: those that are dangerous  or present a specific visual problem such as obsuring traffic  lights or signs, shall be reported.  It will be decided individually  whether the town or the complainant is responsible for the-  resulting cost.

Coast News, March 23,1987  VI  Forge elects  new executive  The Suncoast Writers' Forge  held their annual general  meeting on Wednesday, March  11 with some 20 members in attendance.  Prior to the election of officers, guest speaker Jan de  Bruyn gave an interesting and  informative talk on poetry.  Officers elected were: President, Ruth Forrester; Vice-  President, Ann Dyck;  Secretary, Val Jenkins and  Treasurer, Norma Spahr.  The following were elected as  members of the Board of Directors: Dianne Evans, Kelly  Therien, Paul Jenkins, Dolores  Wilkins, Gwen Hawkins and  Margaret Watt.

At the Arts Centre  Children's drawing class  Artists Susan and Alex Baggio will be holding drawing  classes for children aged 9 and  up at the Arts Centre in Sechelt.  There will be eight sessions starting March 28 from 9 to 11 am.  Enrollment is limited and the  cost is $50 for the eight sessions.  According to Susan, "The  aim of the classes will be to improve the students' ability to  draw. The classes will not be to  develop style or individual  techniques in painting or drawing, but rather to train the hand  to put onto paper what the eye  sees; to learn to define relationships between proportions, to  identify shapes, angles and lines  within the subject. By beginning  with basic shapes, and progress  ing to more interesting forms in  still life, outdoor sketching, and  drawing from the model, we  hope to be able to guide the student to new ways of enjoying  drawing and improving  ability."  For more information or to  register,  please call  the Arts  Centre at 885-5412.  GREEK FOLK NIGHT  For a great evening with a  lively atmosphere the Arts Centre will be hosting Greek Folk  Night on March 28. Dinner at 6  pm is potluck so bring a dish of  Greek flavour or origin and  don't forget your own plate and  cutlery.  The dancing will start at 8 pm  led by Adrian Belshaw who will  teach us some Greek folk  dances that need no partner and  that can be enjoyed by all.  Tickets are $3 for adults and  $2 for children and are available  at the Arts Centre, the  Bookstore in Sechelt, and the  Hunter Gallery in Gibsons.  Now  Introducing!

Rd., Gibsons Landing  886-9213  by Peter Trower  Jerry Rogers continued to  prosper and his reputation rose  with every tree that toppled on  the Jericho slopes. In 1868, he  opened a second camp at  Greer's Beach, now Kitsilano.  They called him the greatest log-,  ger of the decade and his steady  output kept the steam tugs hopping and the headsaws whining.  Like all good leaders, he knew  how to choose men and elicit  their best efforts.  In 1875, Rogers opened a  third camp on False Creek at  the place now known as  Douglas Park. He located here  because of the excellent  meadow that provided grazing  for the oxen and cut down on  the exhorbitant cost of imported feed. In this same year,  Rogers experimented with  mechanical logging for the first  time.  This earliest-known example  of powered equipment in the  B.C. woods, involved the use of  two steam traction engines.  Rogers imported these machines  from the Cariboo where they  had been tried, without notable  success, as a replacement for the  stagecoaches. These primeval  tractors were awkward looking  vehicles resembling cumbersome tricycles. They had solid  rubber tires, six inches thick  and 12 wide.  The clumsy engines were first  used at the Jericho camp.  Specially designed, semipermanent roads were built for  them, with flat-hewn logs laid  lengthways as opposed to the  railroad tie arrangement of logs  on traditional skidroads.  Wooden cars running on the  track, carried the logs.  Although the primitive  machines came nowhere near to  rendering the reliable ox teams  obsolete, Rogers apparently used them to better effect than  their previous owners. The  machines were a definite portent of the direction logging was  to take.  Jerry Rogers was to establish  two more camps on the North  Arm of the Fraser River, one a  mile east of Boundary Road,  the other in the Point Grey  vicinity. But the busy career of  B.C.'s pioneer logger was drawing to a close. On Oct. 26,1879,  the Province's first famous  woodsboss died suddenly at the  Village of Granville of unstated  causes. He was 61 years old.  It is doubtful whether Jerry  Rogers realized what vast  wheels he was setting in motion  when he first undertook his  assault on the timber stands of  the Burrard Peninsula. He was  both clearing the way for a major city and laying the groundwork for a multi-million dollar  industry.

In the face  pf ridicule and "logic" he made  ���ftp his mind about what he was  Igoing to do and did it.  | ��� I have no doubt that before  ���the flood actually arrived, Noah  failed at his neighbours on occasion, quite bluntly telling them  rthat they'd better give up the  ; party-life.  !' Have you ever wondered  ���what would have happened to  IJNoah if God had changed his  | blind? He probably would have  {been treated as the local big  jinouth that no one could reason  jlvith.  But   he   exhibited   another  strong Aries trait in the end and  became the classic "survivor".  There is no scriptural basis  for thinking that Noah was an  Aries. By the time the flood hit  he was over 600 years old* and  ���by that time, even he had pro-  l^bably forgotten when he was  jfborn. But in that brief biblical  ^passage he does appear to encompass the positive use of the  ijpAries' potential that those born  ^between March 21 and April 21  gare blessed with.  h   If you were born under the  jfsign of Aries, symbolized by the  If ram, you may find yourself im-  ���fpulsively   charging   at   brick  iwalls.

With your incredible energy and willpower,  ffyou can achieve great things and  what critics might call "having a  ;one   track   mind"   becomes  determination and focus" if  you  choose  the right  battle-  Iground.

Friends, lovers and  employers walk away, fed up  with your confrontational  behaviour.  You'll also draw crises to you  like a magnet, which will contribute to your picked-on feeling.  A lot of those personality  traits that people say they object  to, will become what they admire most about you if you find  a cause or movement that you  believe in, which can also  benefit the rest of humanity. So  put on your white hat and  become a warrior for the good  guys.  by Montague Royal  The legend of the tragic  clown has a solid basis in fact.  Many of the 20th century's  most successful comedians lived  tormented personal lives that  were anything but fun. Fatty  Arbuckle; Buster Keaton; W.C.  Fields; Lou Costello; British  comedian, Tony Hancock...the  list is long and painful. Recently, a new member joined the  ranks of the sad clowns in the  person of John Belushi, whose  death from a drug overdose sent  shock waves through the entertainment world in 1982. Wired  by crack investigative journalist,  Bob Woodward (Simon and  Schuster), tells Belushi's story in  relentless, scarifying detail,  naming names and generally  tearing the lid off the Hollywood drug scene.  John Belushi grew up in the  town of Wheaton, Illinois, just  outside   Chicago.   In   high  school, he seriously considered  becoming a professional football  player.   But  the  natural  clown in him won out over the  athlete.   Encouraged   by   his  dramatic teacher, Belushi moved to Chicago and joined the  famous Second City Improvisa-  tional   Group,   where   such  talents as Joan Rivers, David  Steinberg and Robert Klein first  honed   their   comedic   skills.  Belushi proved, with his wildly,  imaginative skits, that he could  hold his own with any of them.  Belushi's first big break came  when he joined the cast of Lemmings, a satiric revue, bankrolled by National Lampoon magazine. This led to his becoming  one of the original 'Not Ready  for  Prime Time Players'  on  NBC's trailbreaking television  comedy show, Saturday Night  Live (SNL). Here Belushi worked with such talents as Gilda  Radner,   Chevy   Chase,   Jane  Curtin   and   especially,   Dan  Ackroyd, who would become  Belushi's   partner   and   great  friend. Together, Belushi and  Ackroyd developed their Blues  Brothers routine which would  lead to several successful  albums and a multi-million  dollar film.  It was during his SNL days  that Belushi's drug use first  began to spiral out of control.  Almost everyone in his immediate circle used drugs but  most of them exercised some  moderation. Moderation was  not in Belushi's vocabulary. He  had a particular fondness for  cocaine and consumed it in  monumental quantities, generally in combination with liquor.  Belushi began to get a reputation for erratic and unpredictable behaviour.  But by now, John Belushi  was entering the period of his  greatest fame. After his smash  hit as the consummate slob,  Bluto, in National Lampoon's  Animal House, the comedian  became such a bankable item  that producers were willing to  put up with his wild habits.  Belushi went on to make  several other films, none of  which had the box office clout  of Animal House. Blues  Brothers was a minor hit but  other films such as Continental  Divide and Neighbours, in  which he was cast against type,  sank like stones.  It became obvious that  Belushi should return to the sort  of manic, wide-open comedy  that had made him famous. A  promising farce about wine  making was put under development. Unfortunately, Belushi  insisted on writing the script and  only proved that he was incapable of transferring his comedic ideas to paper. The result  was a disaster and the project  floundered.  Undoubtedly, a suitable property for Belushi would have  been found but, by this time, his  addiction was totally out of  control. He had begun using  heroin in addition to cocaine,  alcohol and various pills. The  combination was to prove fatal.  On March 5, 1982, John  Belushi's body was found in a  seedy hotel bungalow off Sunsei  Boulevard.  Bob Woodward pulls no punches in this exhaustively researched account of John Belushi's  doomed and headlong rush  along the fast lanes of life. It is a  sobering look at the end result  of success combined with excess.

It's at such times that I'm especially grateful that there  are places like the Chicken Shack on Cowrie Street in-  Sechelt which will happily do the cooking for me - and I  don't even have to change from my gardening clothes to  enjoy it. .  All that fresh air last week gave me a healthy, no-  nonsense appetite, so I decided to try for the first time the  barbecue chicken dinner for $6.99. Accompanied by a  marvelous baked potato with sour cream (my favourite  form of spud), hot garlic bread and crispy, tangy cole  slaw, the half chicken was as tender and juicy as one could  hope.  And there was lots; I had enough to bargain away some  for a taste of the House Special Pizza (small $9.50) which  my mate was wolfing down. With mushrooms, salami,  pepperoni, ham and green peppers it was a great taste  combination, and I give my compliments on the crust,  which was not too thick and just the right crispiness for my  taste.  You can create your own combinations, starting with  cheese, sauce and one topping for $6.50 (small), $8.35  (medium) or $11.35 (large, and it's 85 cents for each topping after that.  We didn't order anything to drink, but should you so  desire there are milkshakes and malts in addition to coffee  and soft drinks. And it you still have room there's soft ice  cream for dessert.  If you're lucky enough to live within five miles of  Chicken Shack, you can get home delivery after 4 pm.  And to add a little entertainment to your meals, they also  have videos and machines for rent.  When you're more into eating than cooking, and garden  or beach is the place to be, drop into Chicken Shack and  enjoy.

Gibsons' 4th division side  lead by Lief M.J. Majors locked  horns with the Dunbar Kats.  First half action balanced into some nice scrum play as the  boys shook off the Kats' playing with a large nucleus of nearly 70. The Kats moved the ball  well but found a difficult defensive opposition from the boys in  blue. Possession favoured the  Kats throughout most of the  game. Gibsons played some nice  second phase rugger but appeared weak and out sized in the  backs.  Kats scored just off an interception pass from a loose  ruck. The convert attempt fell  wide. The second score also  favoured the Kats from a 35  yard field goal ending the half.  Second half play saw the Kats  regroup with some new recruits,  while Gibsons sucked it in with  what they had, 14. Tom  Daniels, the fifteenth man  damaged his elbow and was  replaced by ex-Pig back from  the stock yard, Richard Mase,  now playing in town for the  Kats. The green machine did  not waste time pressuring Gibsons' big centre Al Wood to  drive in low for yet another Kat  try, spreading the score to a  13-0 lead.  Gibsons applied late pressure,  not wanting to be shut out.  Scrum half John Rainer played  a late penalty off the Kat 40  yard line by running the ball.  Rainer ran untouched for 25  yards as the awaiting Kats ex  pected the outside pass. Realizing Rainer's strange techniques  were beginning to close in rather  threateningly, the Kats converged on the half en mass, but low  and behold out came the ouside  pass to an awaiting standoff  who also managed another outside pass to none other than  Tom Daniels' replacement Richard Mase. Final score 13-6 for  the Kats.  Gibsons' 3rds lost 10-0 to the  Van Rowers. Game details were  not available. Next week 3rds  are off to town while the 4th  division will play at home  against the East Side Trojons.  Thanks for the dance, Wall  Street.

A member of Gibsons Pool staff gets ready for the entertainment  and excitement of the Scuba Rodeo at Gibsons Pool next Sunday  being held in support of the Rick Hansen fund.  Minor Hockey  The goal nets were filled with  rubber this week, resulting in a  number of lopsided scores.  In Pup action, the Diggers  buried the Dolphins 15-6 on an  8 goal performance by Jesse  Smith, while Chris Hahn scored  3, Ross Pearson had 2 and solos  to Shawn Haine and Jeremy  Howden. For the Dolphins,  Ryan Hancock and Tyler Francis had pairs with singles going  to Tyler Gray and Curtis Munson.  In the Kinuck 5-1 win over  the Legion, Alex Hamilton had  3 while singles went to Ryan  Langevin, Chad Price, and  Stuart Malcolm.  In Atom play, Matt Col-  lishaw had 3 goals and 10 other  players had single markers as  the Lions roared past the Wings  9-4.  The Lions were tamed by the  Stars in their next game, losing  10-3. Mike Yates had 6 tallies,  Brad Wigard 2 and singles to  Darnell Hansen,  Jason Web  ster,   Rod   Hickman,   Ashley  Koftenoff and Sean Ryan.  In a closer contest in the  PeeWee division, the Islanders  nipped the Thunderbirds 7-5 on  the strength of 3 goals by Brad  Wingfield, and singles to Murray Howes, Craig Jackson,  Mike Lewis and Danny Tetzloff. Brian Dusenbury and  Nathan Gough both scored 2  and Gordon Hunter scored for  the T-birds.  There was plenty of out-of-  town competition this weekend  as Squamish and Mission visited  the Coast. Brad Wingfield had a  hat-trick, and Craig Jackson a  single but it was not enough as  the Islanders fell 5-4 to  Squamish.  Eight different Blackhawks  scored and handed Squamish an  8-2 whipping.  Our Bantams lost both games  to Mission by scores of 5-2 and  10-2. Scorers were Shayne Joe  with 2, Clay Munson and Cory  August.

Lions plant trees  The Sechelt Lions Club has  high hopes for the 2000 young  Christmas trees they planted  this month in East Sechelt  District.  The Christmas trees were  donated by the Sechelt Forestry  Department and the Lions are  hoping that in four years with  the requisite tender loving care a  goodly harvest of Christmas  trees will be realized.  Eighteen members of the  Lions Club participated in the  planting.  This long-term project was  organized for the Sechelt Lions  by President, Brian Leckie.

A call could save your  life.  This transition house has  three full time staff and two  relief staff who are trained to  deal with any problems that  may arise. Their knowlede extends into such areas as physical, sexual, and psychological  abuse, both against women and  their children. They also help  women regain their self esteem  and feelings of self worth that  are often badly damaged in an  abusive situation.  Being a resident in the transition house I have first hand  knowledge of the workings of  this haven. I see the staff provide counselling to the women  in residence, help out women  still in abusive situations,  women who need legal and  financial advise, and they also  provide child care counselling.

Many women come into a  safe house to get away from  emotional and psychological  abuse.  When a women is in an  abusive situation, she feels that  she is all alone and that no one  understands what she is going  through. Her spouse or boyfriends may have characteristics  such as "split personality",  chronic lying, hatred of women,  insecurity, immaturity or drug  and alcohol abuse. These are  just a few of the behaviours of  abusive men.  Women also feel that leaving,  especially with children is a  frightening thought, worse  though is staying and being subjected to the abuse. Remember  this and take the first step  towards the phone. Help is  available 24 hours a day.  I would like to thank the staff  for all their caring and support  The transition house will  benefit from the Sunshine Coast  Community Services Donation  and Membership Drive this  coming weekend.

Well, they came! Approximately 50 adults and 10  children. There wasn't time to  count as extra helpers jumped in  to set up more tables and make  more tea. Vi and Dolly, the tea  ladies, took it all in their stride.  The tea raffle was won by  lucky Rhonda Nichols, I say  that because she won at the last  tea. Julie Reid from Madeira  Park won the proverb contest;  Fran Cattermole from Earls  Cove won a door prize, as did  Harriet Williams from Florida;  and Peg Riley from Pender  Harbour won the Leprechaun  drawing contest.  All this plus they had live  entertainment. Two guest  singers from the city sang for  their tea. These young ladies  were guests of Iris Griffiths for  the week.  Will there be an Easter tea? I  hear rumours of an Easter  smorgasbord by convenor Donna Berntzen. There is definitely  the dance with live music on  Saturday, April 4.  Still rumours of Bingo trying  to happen twice a month in the  Egmont Community Hall. If 50  people will attend a tea I  wonder how many would show  up for bingo.  NOT SO WELL LIST  David Jensen, who just moved to Egmont and started work,  has had a set back. David was in  a car accident which left him  with a broken jaw and nose.

File No. 2403132.  #12  Editor's note: a copy of the  following was received for  publication.  Honourable Lyall Hanson  Minister of Labour  Victoria, BC  Mr. Minister:  The Sunshine Coast Labour  Council wishes to express its  opinion on labour relations in  B.C.  Our Labour Council received  its charter from the Canadian  Labour Congress less than one  year ago. The prevailing labour  climate was a big factor in the  need for a labour council on the  Coast.  This climate has been harsh  for working people in recent  years.  Collective bargaining has  become very difficult. It has  been estimated that the actual  rate of unemployment on the  Sunshine Coast is over 30 per  cent. This is the result of  massive layoffs in the public  sector due to the government's  restraint policy and the elimination of hundreds of jobs in the  forest industry through the introduction of new technology.  The threat of unemployment  is being used by private and  public sector employers to put  pressure on unions to take cuts  in wages and benefits. At the  same time the provincial  government has passed legislation and introduced programs  that restrict the rights of  workers to bargain collectively.  There is the Compensation  Stabilization Program which  sets the wage increases, incidentally, which have always been  below the rate of inflation.  Every time the ferry workers are  negotiating a contract they are  threatened with Essential Services Legislation.  The pulp workers were forced  back to work in 1984 by a  special act of the legislature.  The labour code has been  changed to restrict picketing to  primary work sites. This was the  reason for the long IWA strike  in 1986. It is significant to note  that the strike ended only when  IWA members began expanding  the strike regardless of legal  restrictions, and the B.C.  Federation of Labour was ready  to, come out in support of the  IWA.  ��� 7Qn the one hand unionized  Workers are getting hammered  by employers demanding concessions and on the other hand  labour's ability to fight back  and protect the interest of its  members is being limited by  government action.  The conditions for unorganized workers are even worse.  There are many small businesses  on the Sunshine Coast. Many of  these pay very low wages and  sometimes do not even comply  with the Labour Standards Act,  or WCB regulations.  We know of workers who  work long hours without over  time, of wages being arbitrarily  reduced and of unsafe working  conditions. Employers get away  with it because at the slightest  complaint from a worker, he or  she is down the road.  Changes to the Labour Code  have made it more difficult for  these workers to get certified  and easier to get decertified, for  example there is the case of a  business where a union was certified less than a year ago. The  employer immediately started  hiring family and friends and  now the threat of decertification  is there.  In our opinion employers  treating their employees as a  resource to be exploited to the  maximum is the root cause of  labour unrest in this province.  Working people and their  families form the vast majority  of people in B.C. The law and  particularly labour law should  not restrict the freedom of  workers but encourage  organization and collective  bargaining to achieve social  justice and improved living and  working conditions.  We ask that legislation that  infringes upon the basic  democratic rights of workers be  repealed. We also ask that the  portion of the Labour Code  that restricts the rights of unions  to organize, to strike and picket  be removed. An important addition to the Labour Code  would be, prohibiting the use of  strike breakers.  Generally we ask that you en-?  sure that new labour legislation;  in B.C. will enhance the rights \  of unions and working people'  as a whole and will be acceptable to the organized labour  movement before its adoption  into law.  Hans Penner  Sunshine Coast Labour Council  Teachers pleased  Editor:  The Board of Trustees of  School District No. 46 took  some strong positions last week  which will go a long way toward  restoring morale and good  bargaining relations with  teaching professionals.  Motions were passed to petition the provincial government  to withdraw the Compensation  Stabilization Program which  has caused much of the rancour  in public sector negotiations,  and which is particularly unfair  to employees with long salary  increment scales such as we  have.  The Board also moved to  petition the government to  amend the Labour Code to include teachers; a controversial  move, but one which will finally  give our teachers bargaining  rights long accepted for most  other employee groups in the  weatern world.  The Sunshine Coast  Teachers' Association also  wishes to congratulate the  Board for their courageous  budget proposal which will  come close to restoring levels of  service and programs lost over  the past four years.  It is now incumbent upon the  provincial government to follow  through the Board's courage by  restoring the provincial share of  taxes and preventing an  unreasonable burden on local  taxpayers.

New  members always welcome. See  you there.  by Kent Sheridan  The responsibility for structural upkeep, maintenance and  repair of the equipment with  moving or rotating parts at the  Port Mellon millsite, rests with  the trades people and maintenance support services.  Age, constant state of change  and upgrading in the mill  necessitates a substantial trades  work force. The routine and  often innovative repair needs  are met by approximately 113  skilled trades people.  This workforce is comprised  of millwrights, welders, electricians, pipefitters, instrument  mechanics, carpenters, painters,  machinists, garage mechanics,  masons, sheet metallists, lag-  gers, oilers, a rigger, toolcrib attendant and mill store employees.  To understand what faces  this workforce one has to realize  that there are approximately  5000 major pieces of equipment  on the millsite. A major portion  of the equipment is pumps,  motor drives, reducers, fans,  blowers, mobile equipment, and  various types of related pipes,  storage tanks and pressure  vessels.  Port Mellon's trades people  require a supply of parts, fittings and accessories to maintain the equipment under their  charge. Mill stores, with about  40,000 items on its shelves,  meets this requirement; a hardware store right on the mill site.  Communication and co-ordination, between operations  and maintenance, is the key to  the organized repair and  replacement of mill machinery.  In February, 1987, there were  1240 job orders to be attended  to.  These job orders are divided  into four groups: routine  maintenance, the repairing of  pumps, pipes and gaskets are  examples; preventive maintenance, tradesmen routinely  survey mill equipment and  oilers lubricate machinery on a  KARAT GOLD LOW PRICES  MURDOCH'S  JEWELRY  at  Mar Lee Fashions (Cedar Plaza, Gibsons)  every Saturday 1-5 pm  maintenance  daily basis; capital projects,  which involves the tieing-in and  modification of new and standing equipment, and, breakdown maintenance, the unplanned category.  A daily work schedule is  drawn up from these categories  and trades people are assigned  to various jobs. Routine work  orders are carried out with  minimum interference to mill  operations and production.  Area shutdowns are planned  a month in advance and usually  take a day to complete. There  are two major mill shutdowns  per year when the repair-.or  modification of essential production equipment takes place!  r  EXCAVATING  JANDE EXCAVATING  Backhoe  Bulldozing  RR. 2, Leek Road  Gibsons, BC VON 1V0  Sand & Gravel  Land Clearing  Drainage  886-9453  Damp Truck  Excavating  JOE & EDNA  BELLERIVE J  Garry's Crane Service  6 Ton Crane ���   450 J.D.

Police news  SECHELT RCMP  A Sechelt resident reported  the theft of a Nikon FE 35 mm  camera and Hanimex flash  valued at approximately $1000  from his vehicle which was  parked at the Trail Bay Mall.  ':��� Police are reminding people  to make sure that their vehicles  are locked when left unattended.  7 Several 24 hour driver license  suspensions were issued by  Sechelt RCMP this past week.  Police have several suspects  following damage done to a  stand owned by the Seaforth  Highlander Army Cadets which  was stored at Davis Bay  Elementary School.  Several complaints of willful  damage in the West Sechelt area  have been received. Also, a  residence in Davis Bay was  broken into and vandalized.  Several articles of value were  stolen.  A minor single vehicle accident near Sechelt arena has  resulted in a Gibsons resident  being charged under the Motor  Vehicle Act.  A resident of Irvine's Landing Road near Hotel Lake was  broken into. Nothing of value  was stolen.  Three orange and gray garbage containers valued at $750  were stolen from Sechelt  Elementary School grounds.  The quarterly meeting of the  Island Trust Council met March  13 and 14 on Bowen Island,  hosted by local trustees Peggy  Rose and Don Leigh.  On the agenda during the  first day was Mr. Alan LeFevre,  from the Ministry of Forests  and Lands, together with Mr.  Larry Sorkin who gave the  trustees a deadline of June 30 to  have their water zoning in place.  The ministry wants to know  specifically where fin fish and  aquaculture will not be appropriate. The moratorium on  fish farms will be lifted in April  10 with the exception of the  Island Trust area which will be  continued until the June 30  date.  They went on to state however, that the moratorium will  be held 'indefinitely' in the  Howe Sound area. This is due  to the recreational nature of the  Sound and its proximity to a  large urban area.  The ministry received many  letters on this subject after a  largely hostile public attended,  an information meeting sponsored by the Islands Trust after  they had received applications  for fish farms on Keats Island hi  the Spring of 1986.  Leiani Anthony, beginning  her second term as local trustee  for Gambier and Keats Island  introduced her new co-trustee,  Dr. John Stockner. An Oceano-  this year's 12 graduating students from Capilano College's Aquaculture course gathered together with  their instructor just prior to the official graduation ceremony and celebration held in Sechelt last Friday.  ���Kent Sheridan phptQy  grapher, John is Research  Scientist in the Pacific Region  stationed at the West Vancouver Lab and with his  background in marine biology  will be a valuable asset to the  Trust Council generally and  Gambier and Keats Islands, specifically in the area of water  zoning which he is presently  working on around Gambier  Island.  The Honourable Rita Johnston, Minister of Municipal Affairs arrived first thing Saturday  morning and told the Trust  Council that with her full support and that of the Premier she  didn't see any problems in having full proclamation of sections  of the Trust Act that relate to  the trust fund. This would allow  the Island Trust to acquire lands  and funds to carry out the object of the Trust.  This has been a wish of the  Trust Council for many years as  many opportunities of land bequests have been lost without  the necessary proclamation in  place.  Following the minister's  remarks each trustee gave her  an island by island report, with  many amusing anecdotes about  island life. She in turn commented on concerns raised and  made recommendations for  possible ways of addressing  throny issues. The trustees were  very favourably impressed with  the time Mrs. Johnstone spent,  which was the entire Saturday  morning, followed by lunch and  a guided tour of Bowen Island.  Residents of Gambier Island  will be going to Public Hearing  in May to consider an application by Joe Karmel of Gambier  Harbour to zone a lot in New  Brighton 'commercial' for the  purpose of running a small  general store. It has been approximately .18 years since there  was any sort of store on the  Island, the last being run during  the summer months only by Ted  Smyth at Gambier Harbour.  That building was eventually  sold to the present owner,  Frank Rogers, who rennovated  the little old store into a very  smart bungalow.  V_jf \j / ��_j^SJ_ilL_!
