 Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, BC V8V 1X4  87.6  Peace Walk on Saturday  Vets against nuclear  war explain stand  "What I am trying to do is to  get people to recognize the problem with nuclear weapons."  This statement came from  retired Col. W.N. Hoye  representing Veterans Against  Nuclear Arms (VANA) in an  address to peace advocates at an  April 13 Roberts Creek  meeting.  "Everything should be tested  against the proposition that the  only real threat to Canada is the  threat of a Nuclear War." he  said. He did not say we should  abandon NORAD or NATO.  He did say we should gain  sovereignty.  VANA believes it unsatisfactory that the North Warning  System will be 60 per cent owned by the United States. We  should buy it all.  It believes support of the  United Nations should be a permanent feature of Canadian  foreign and defence policy,  representing as it does Canadian  faith in an ultimate world order..  democratically controlled by its  members.  It suggests establishment of a  United Nations Security Service  with a Border Control Force, a  Monitoring and Verification  Agency, and an International  Police Force.  "Canada can lead the way,  we've done it in the past and can  do it again." Col. Hoy urged.  VANA has grown from four,  founding members in 1982 to;  more than 500 across Canada.7  Ninety per cent of its members;  served in war. :'  This is the kind of message 7  that marchers will be sending to-  the government on the Annual t  "Walk For Peace" in Van-';  couver on April 25. The Sun-7:  shine Coast Peace Committee is-  inviting people from this area to ;  meet in front of the Kits Beach  House under their banner.  They also have some seats  still available on a chartered bus ;  from Horseshoe Bay to Van- 7  couver.   Anyone   wanting   to 7  book a seat or arrange for a car  pool should call 885-2101.  Lifeboat No. 7 sets out on its maiden voyage around Gibsons Harbour after its launching Saturday morning by members of Gibsons  Lifeboat Station, with Coxswain Roy Boutilier at the helm and  Captain Wm. York Higgs, after whom the boat is named, in the  prow. Volunteer crews will bow undergo two weeks of intensive  training in search, rescue and first aid techniques, and the wdl-  equipped boat will be on call from its free berth in Gibsons Marina  24 hours a day, 7 days a week as of May 1. The driving force behind  the founding of Gibsons Lifeboat Station, Captain Higgs, 86, has  spent a lifetime devoted to marine safety, inventing the lifesaving  Search Initiator Buoy Wfter 15 years of research and being  honoured around the world for his achivements. In recognition of  tn^is^tim^er^ Lifeboat Station mills  membership drive, Captain Higgs presented certificates ofTcom-  mendation to Navy League Cadets, here shown with Cadet Greg  Kirkman. ���Fran Bumside photo  Policy pondered  Gibsons Chamber to  elect executive  The Gibsons and District Chamber of Commerce election of officers for the 1987-88 term will be held on Tuesday, April 21 at 7:30 pm in the Marine Room.

School Board faces AIDS question  by Ken Collins  Celebration Committee  hits Council snag  The Chairman of the Sechelt  Chamber of Commerce  Celebration Days Committee  has resigned in the face of a  Sechelt Council decision to  refuse the committee's request  for a beer garden permit. Joe  Benner told the Coast News last  week that he has travelled all  over the world and a beer  garden has been an integral part  of every local fair that he knows  of.  "It's my personal feeling that  as a citizen of the Sunshine  Coast I cannot work for the  people and fight against city  hall," he said in explaining his  resignation.  Benner said he has been  working on the event for four  months, making plans and preparation and co-ordinating with  Pender Harbour and Gibsons to  ensure support for each community's festivities. "I felt it  was time to try and break the  animosity on the peninsula by  working together."  When the committee approached Sechelt Municipal  Council for permission to close  off Inlet Avenue for an arts and  crafts fair and beer garden during Celebration Days, they were  asked to have a petition circulated among nearby merchants to find out if they concurred with the idea.  The results of the petition  show that 86 merchants  favoured the plan, four were  against the beer garden and  seven against closing off the  street.  "That tells me that the people  really want it," said Benner.  However, the results of the  petition were brought back to  council at a special meeting on  April 9 to which neither Benner  nor the press were invited.  At last week's Sechelt Council meeting Mayor Bud Koch explained that the issue had been  dealt with immediately after  council had heard a submission  by Chatelech principal Brian  Butcher on the school's drug  and alcohol abuse program.  Minutes from the April 9  meeting state, "The request for  a beer garden was denied in support of the Drug and Alcohol  Abuse Program."  Joe Benner calls their decision "ridiculous" and the  Chamber of Commerce has  been unable to find anyone to  take up the job of committee  chairman.  "I've wasted a lot of time and  energy on this," he said. "Now  nobody is co-ordinating it. My  suggestion to the chamber was  to turn the thing back over to  the municipality. Let them form  a committee to run it."  On the evening of April 13,  Sunshine Coast School Trustees  joined other School Boards  throughout B.C. in an audio  conference on the subject of  AIDS.  "Currently as far as Health  and Welfare Canada is concerned there are no students of  school age in Canada who have  the disease." stated panel  speaker Dr. Barbara Foxwell.  But that does not mean there  won't be, she went on to explain. No longer is AIDS confined to particular lifestyles or  ethnic groups. It can affect  anyone.  The good news is that there  is virtually no risk of infection  in normal day to day activities  through casual contact because  the virus is very fragile once  outside the human body. It survives only milliseconds at less  than body temperatures and is  killed by simple disinfectants.  The most risk, is from individuals who don't know they  have it. There is no test for the  virus itself, only the antibodies.  They take six months to show  themselves, maybe longer.  There are shortcomings in the  test. It frequently gives either  false positive or false negative  results.  Mandatory testing? Not a  good idea says Dr. Foxwell,  "We must weigh the potential  devastation of an individual's  career and life as a result of a  positive test against the negligible risk of transmitting the infection in a normal school setting."  The main mode of transmission seems to be sex. "In the  field of prevention the only absolute 100 per cent sure method  is abstinence or a monogamous  relationship with a non-infected  partner" said Dr. Foxwell. She  went on to explain condoms  can't be trusted to prevent  pregnancy and would be even  less effective in AIDS prevention.  Until we find out more about  what we are dealing with our  best option is widespread education without creating public  hysteria Dr. Foxwell recommends.  Lawyer Peter Csistar  presented some legal aspects.  Schools have a responsibility to  care for students in the same  manner as good parents. There  are numerous provisions  already in the School Act and  Health Act to assist in this.  School medical officers may be  appointed. They may examine  the general health of teachers  and other employees of the  Board.  Individuals   are   protected  under the Human Rights Act.  What about disclosure of information? There is the Privacy  Act as it relates to confidentiality. Individuals can bring civil  suit if their privacy is violated.  Sechelt dinner  The next dinner meeting of the Sechelt Chamber of Commerce will be held at the Golden City Restaurant on April  28th. Social hour will begin at 6:30 followed by dinner at  7:30. The cost is $11 and reservations should be made by calling the Chamber office at 885-3100.  Bill Barley will be giving an update on the 'Sechelt  Revitalization Program'. All interested citizens, especially  business people and landlords directly concerned, are  welcome to attend.

Five years ago this weekend the Sunshine Coast News  was well represented as 30,000 people marched for peace  from Kits Beach in Vancouver across Burrard Street  Bridge to Sunset Beach.  The size of the march took the organizers by surprise  but since then it has grown considerably and it is likely that  this Saturday in the neighbourhood of 100,000 people will  make their good-natured testament against the stockpiling  and testing of nuclear weapons and for enduring peace.  We will be there again this Saturday and there is some  satisfaction that the patient voices never raised in anger  which have continued to speak against the hair-trigger  madness of our nuclear age may be being heard today as  never before.  1987 has been the first year in many years that any appearance of movement can be detected in the attitudes of  the superpowers towards disarmament.  Be that as it may, the voices for peace must still be heard  and the testament of feet made abundant in Saturday's  march. Let's keep a good thing going.  Consultation,  please  Before the province divides once again into irrational  opposing camps, let us try to understand what is wrong  with the approach again being used by the government of  B.C. on the labour unions and the teachers' federation, an  approach which is likely, once more, to cause us nothing  but grief.  This is not to discuss the merits of the legislation proposed, but rather to underline the negative effects of the  government's chosen mode of operation.  Whenever you meddle with the conditions under which  people earn their daily bread you run the risk of making  much insecurity and into the abyss of that insecurity can  disappear good intentions and good will. When the  changes proposed are major and come suddenly and  without consultation with those to be affected you almost  ensure confrontation.  Confrontation is what this much divided province does  not need; confrontation is what Premier VanderZalm promised he would avoid; once again, confrontation appears  to be what we are going to endure.  Closer to home  Closer to home we have a similar example of hasty  government action taken without consultation. Again, we  do not debate whether Sechelt should have a beer garden  for its Celebration Days, though the preponderance of  those polled favoured it by a large margin.  But to take such a decision m closed meeting without  discussing or even proposing alternatives to the Celebrations Committee is discourteous and silly.  5 YEARS AGO  A Beaver float plane belonging to Tyee Air sinks in  Gibsons harbour after colliding with an unmarked portion of the new breakwater being constructed by the  Federal Department of Public Works.  A change in the ferry service effective June will see  larger ferries on the Langdale-Horseshoe Bay run and  consequently fewer sailings.  Sechelt has decided to go ahead with the expansion  of its works yard adjacent to the Arts Centre despite a  written request that the land be set aside for the expansion of the Arts Centre.  SCRD Tendering of Practices come under criticism  again, this time from Bob Bjornson of D&B Excavating.  10 YEARS AGO  There has been concern lately about what is going to  happen to our bus service now that the ferries are coming up with a major rescheduling. Bill Hamilton, the  manager for Sechelt Motor Transport feels that with his  company's 30 years experience in coastal transportation he could give the Ferry Corporation some useful input, but as yet has had no communication with them.  20 YEARS AGO  The dog problem once again appears in the school  principal's report to the school board. Principal George  Cooper of Gibsons Elementary School reports that  three children have been bitten during recess periods  on the school grounds in the past several months.  30 YEARS AGO  Strong opposition to the move of Irvines Landing Post  Office to Garden Bay has developed among residents  living at the western end of Pender Harbour. A petition  against the move is now being circulated in the area  and postal officials are being besieged with protest letters.  40 YEARS AGO  Sydney McKay, magistrate of Selma Park, has been  notified of his appointment to exercise the jurisdiction  conferred by the Small Debts Court Act within that portion of the mainland of the County of Vancouver lying  south and east of the waters of Agamemnon Channel  and Jervis Inlet.

When  I was growing up I was forever  being told to 'act like a lady', as  were many of my friends of that  era.  We were told it was  not  'ladylike' to sit with one's legs  uncrossed. It was not 'ladylike'  to get dirty. It was not 'ladylike'  to interrupt. It was also not  'ladylike' to slouch at the dinner  table; play, Cowboys; and In--  dians, scratch an itch in public^  fidget,  yell,  bite,  talk back, ,  climb   trees,   ride   with   the ^  milkman in his wagon, play .  with boys, let my nose run or  even blow it in public, giggle or  EVER speak of bodily functions. There were a lot of other  things that were not 'ladylike'  and every one of them seemed  to be either natural or fun.  And why, I wondered, were  we told to 'act' like ladies?  Could it be that the female of  the species could only pretend?  If we followed our mothers' advice, did it mean that sincerity  and truthfulness went by the  boards? And yet, we were not  supposed to lie. It was all very  .   confusing!  That's why the one thing l  didn't want to be when I grew  up was a 'lady'. (I'm sure there  are lots of people on the coast,  including   some   members   of  Sechelt Council, who would say  that I had certainly attained that  goal!)  Anyway, you can imagine my  relief when I learned, through  ' much experience and a lot of  conscioiisriess-raising ^through  ���-��� International  Women's  Year,  'that little girls do ���ot naturally  grow up to be 'ladies'. We, in  fact, grow up to be women! In  the women's movement, 'lady'  was a four letter word. I even  spent two years producing a  CBC television program with  that title!  You see, according to the dictionary 'lady' is a noun meaning: 'a well-bred woman; the title of the wife of a Knight, or a  superior in rank to him; the  Peace notes  Why not education  for Peace?  daughter of a duke, marquis or  earl; the mistress of a house'.  On the other hand, the dictionary defines 'woman' as 'an  adult person of the female sex'.  A definition that I, and many  other would-be 'ladies', am  much more comfortable with.  Now you may wonder where  all this is leading to, and what  prompted this column. Then  again, maybe you're not. But  I'm going to tell you anyway.  In April 14's issue of The  Press, I noticed an advertisement for an 'Investment Club  for Ladies'. A meeting, was to  be held at the Driftwood and  guest speakers would have information and advice on insurance, real estate and mutual  investments. I was interested. I  have a small nest egg and I  would like to see it grow.  Unfortunately, this club was  only for 'ladies'. Perhaps they  would let me go anyway. So I  inquired. "No", I was told by  one of the organizers, "this club  is only for 'ladies'.. .no women  or men allowed". I explained to  this woman (or lady as she  wanted to be referred to) that I  had come from a long line of  'ladies'.   My   mother   was   a  'lady', but I was a woman.  I also said that I felt allowing  only 'ladies' to come to the investment club was discriminatory. She, however, said that,  the whole aim of the club was to,  teach 'ladies' about investment,  and that 'women' were more  apt to know about investment!  already. The goal, she told me,  was to attract 'ladies' and!  especially 'married ladies'  because they tended to be less,  informed on the subject.  She also thought I was joking;  about the whole thing. I assured,  her I wasn't and said she could,  read my. point of view in! my,  next Coast News column. She|  didn't think that was fair, but as'  a 'lady' she should realize that a  lot of things in this world aren't  fair...and won't be until 'ladies'  grow up to be women.  Maybe I should have told her  I was a spinster. In the dictionary that's defined as 'a  woman who sits and spins; an  unmarried woman'. But I guess  that wouldn't have helped  either, because even as a  spinster, according to the dictionary, I am still not a 'lady'. I  guess I should have listened to  my mother!  by Alan Wilson  "It is s. calamity that Peace  Education...is not an automatic  part of every curriculum  through the primary and secondary school system," says  Canada's Ambassador to the  'UN, Stephen Lewis.  "...How ironic it is that  driver education and sex education and education on drugs, all  of them worthwhile.,.have an  absolutely fundamental place in  the school system but education  for survival does not. What the  devil are schools for if not to  deal with such subject matter?"  Lewis' concerns will be addressed at the Conference in  Nanaimo on May 2, Hope in  the Nuclear Age: Saying Yes to  Peace, which will feature the  SAGE students from Montreal.  One of the key aspects of the  conference will be a look at the  need for Peace Education in our  school system.  B.C. teachers' Federation  (BCTF) president, Elsie  McMurphy writes that, "the  BCTF is on record as supporting Peace Education in our  schools, as is the Canadian  Teachers' Federation" (which  has a membership of some  225,000 teachers).  McMurphy adds: "The  BCTF and the Canadian  Teachers' Federation support  the SAGE Tour". And she  says: "I am pleased to report  that Stephen Hamilton, a BCTF  peace associate will be participating in the Gabriola Island  Peace Association (GIPA) program on May 2." He will give a  workshop on Peace Education,  one of 15 being offered, including workshops on conflict  resolution and the power of  non-violence.  The Nanaimo Superintendent  of Schools, Dr. R.K. David,  writes: "I believe it is necessary  to include Peace Education in  our program of studies. I feel  this topic should be integrated  into the Social Studies curriculum as part of the on-going  program at various grade  levels." About the conference,  he adds: "I am impressed by the  program and I look forward to  attending."  Retired Canadian Major-  General Leonard Johnson  writes: "It is a pleasure for me  to endorse the conference sponsored by the GIPA and the  Malaspina College Disarmament Group. Is there "Hope in  the Nuclear Age"? The resounding answer YES! is a much  needed antidote to the  discouragement of bleak  times."  He adds that in his view, "the  SAGE youth nuclear disarmament tour is one of the most  valuable initiatives ever taken  toward public awareness of the  perils and opportunities of the  nuclear age. While dealing with  the sobering realities of the  potential for nuclear war, these  young people do so with optimism and hope. In doing so,  they empower the powerless to  resist the hopelessness of  nuclear terror.  "Let there be no doubt about  it," says Johnson, "the nuclear  Please turn to page 17  Make no mistake if he rose at all it was as his body,  if the cell's dissolution did not reverse, the molecules reknit  the amino acids rekindle,  the Church will fall.

Let us not seek to make it less monstrous  for our own convenience, our own sense of beauty,  lest, awakened in one unthinkable hour, we are embarassed  by the miracle  and crushed by remonstrance.  John Updike  Contributed by:  J. Cameron Fraser, Pastor,  Grace Reformed Presbyterian Church, Sechelt -Coast News, April 20,1987  Editor:  Peace is a condition which is  treated perfunctorily by the daily news media, preoccupied as  they are by the latest rape,  murder or political chicanery.  There has been no mention here  of a momentous event which  took place at the Kremlin in  Moscow on February 14 to 16  of this year.  It was the Forum for a  Nuclear-free World, for the  Survival of Humanity and was  attended by about 1000 foreign  visitors from more than 80  countries.  Many famous people were  there: Pierre Elliott Trudeau;  writers Graham Greene, Norman Mailer; actors Gregory  Peck, Paul Newman, Shirley  MacLaine; film-makers Peter  Ustinov and Costa Gavras;  economist John Kenneth  Galbraith; Nobel Laureate Bernard Lown, who is co-chairman  of International Physicians for  the Prevention of Nuclear War.  Artist/musician Yoko Ono,  too, was there and expressed  herself enthusiastically. George  Hutchison, international  secretary of Scientists Against  Nuclear  Arms  and   dissident  physicist Andrie Sakharov, also  attended. The military were  represented by Gene Laroque,  U.S. Admiral (ret.) and Gert  Bastian, Nato General (ret.).  Concerning the meeting  Mikhail Gorbachev said,  "...We reject any right for  leaders of a country, be it the  USSR, the USA, or other, to  pass a death sentence on  humanity."  The above scoop was achieved by a reporter from a small  Vancouver weekly newspaper.  This unexpected assembly of  progressive thinkers reminds me  of the 17th century astronomer  Galileo whose behaviour is a  model of courage for all peace  advocates. He discovered that  the earth moves around the sun  and, despite cruel persecution  by the Inquisition for his belief,  he continued stubbornly to  repeat, "Nevertheless it does  move."  Can we dare to hope that the  weight of same opinion today  may soon tip the scales in  favour of disarmament and the  settling of international disputes  through sensible debate in  world courts?  (Mrs.) Isabel Ralph  Workers beware  Editor:  The last census tells us that  there are some 2.8 million people in B.C. and except for a few i  thousand they all were, are, or  will be working people. As such  they will be affected by Bill 19,  the 'Labour Relations Reform  Act.'  It does not matter whether  you are union or non-union,  laws affect everybody. These  labour law amendments are intended to cure a mythical situation whose supposed existence  cannot be statistically substantiated.  Regardless of their intent it is  their potential which should be  of great concern to every working person present and future in  this province. This law, unchallenged, has inherent'in it,  the capacity to remove from  every worker every right and  benefit won, at great cost, since  organized workers began  fighting for those rights in this  province.  The present government has  conferred incredible and unprecedented powers on Ed Peck  of CSP fame who, in his brief  stint, has taken B.C.'s government workers from once the  best paid to one of the worst  paid of any government in  Canada. He will now have the  power to guarantee the same for  all B.C. working people.  This legislation needs to be  carefully analysed. I do not ask  that my words be accepted unquestioned but I do ask the  working people of B.C. to take  a good hard look at the potential of Bill 19. Their future is it  stake. ���'-'"���; '^ -;';; ������'- '-':'-- ;"'  T.L.

Editor:  Being a former employee in  the aquaculture industry here  on the Sunshine Coast, I'd like  to say it's sad to see the  aquaculture community defending themselves using the  economic and employment side  of the fence.  Sure they've brought millions  of dollars and employment to  the Coast. But what about the  environmental concerns?  The Gillespie Report contains  52 recommendations, what are  they? Do they contain any  regulations concerning predator  control? Who keeps track of  how many seals, sea lions, river  otters, mink, kingfishers and  herons are being shot on sight  and/or caught up in nets as was  my experience? Even our local  conservation officer said he  didn't know how our otter  population is fairing!  Another problem is the build  up of teces and feed^under the  net pens. In one instance it was  from eight to 12 inches thick,  taking into consideration these  pens were in place for over a  year and were situated in  shallow water where the  flushing of tides and currents  are not adequate.  Why were these pens allowed  in such shallow water in the first  place? One diver said to me, "It  looks like the surface of the  moon down there." Well I  don't think there's much life on  the surface of the moon!  These are just a couple of the  environmental concerns I know  of. So is it too much to ask that  these concerns be seriously addressed? Millions have been  spent for the industry, can't a  few dollars be spent for the environment.  There's always another way  to make a buck. But let's  remember our ecosystem won't  just repair itself overnight once  disrupted! Why not look into it  before it's too late?  Taxpayers organize  Editor:  Once again we British Columbians, are faced with further  tax increases from every level of  government.  Less than one year ago, our  organization, Mission and  District Ratepayers Association  (MADRA) formed as a result of  extreme increases in our property taxes. We are more than 120  members strong, joined together in hopes that our voice  may be heard.  Over the past year, our investigations at the municipal  level, have revealed that senior  governments, both provincial  and federal, have been increasingly placing a large portion of  the tax burden onto the  municipalities and in turn, onto  the home owner. The elderly  and low income earners have  not been exempted.  In addition, all levels of  government are seemingly unsympathetic towards job creation. Insteacf, in the recent  federal and provincial budgets,  it was seen fit to further tax  those who can ill afford it.  We would like to take this  opportunity to appeal to your  readers to join with other  British Columbians in helping  to organize a 'Provincial Taxpayers Organization'. An  organization which would be  dedicated to putting a halt to  regressive taxation and impressing governments in a redirection  of the funds which they reap in.  We invite any person(s) or  organizations, wishing to contact us, to write to: MADRA  c/o Mrs. N. Rottluff, 33191  Myrtle Avenue, Mission, BC  V2V 4R6.  We must organize in order to  be heard.

I think the Premier is either  not telling the whole truth or is  suffering from a very selective  memory. It may well be true  that the family sat down to  meals at the appropriate time,  but especially in winter,  breakfast, lunch and supper  may not have been more than  thin cabbage soup and dry  bread.  During the occupation, starvation was not unknown in  Holland, especially in the cities.  If you lived in the country or a  small town with a good network  of family members with gardens  or farms on which to raise food,  and if you could avoid having it  commandeered by the occupying army, it was possible to feed  one's family even though the  fare was simple and with little  variety.  It helped too, to have young  children who were adept at  scrounging.  Because the Premier's father  was caught in Canada at the  outbreak of war and unable to  return home, there would have  been strong support for his wife  and children from family and  neighbours. I'm sure they came  through the difficult time  because their mother was a  resourceful and determined person, but there are great differences between the world of  the 1940's and the 1980's.  Most importantly, in wartime  Holland, however grim things  were, and there must have been  times which the Premier forgets  when,he went to_bed hungry  and when his njojther^wondered  where their next' meal would���'  come from.

Super Valu  the same boat. It wasn't a case  of being poor amidst extravagant plenty.  There was also light at the  end of the tunnel. Everyone had  faith that hostilities would one  day end and things would improve. No one was looking  down on you for being poor,  suggesting it was your own fault  because you were too lazy or  whatever to get a job.  The Premier's mother would  have grown up at the end of the  First World War, when shortages were the order of the day  and when, if you wanted any  variety of food during the  winter, you canned or dried or  stored it in root cellars etc. It's  unlikely she was brought up  with pre-packaged store-bought  food and so would know how  to make a little go a long way  and how to make everything  from scratchy    .v, ;    v  :    ^I.havfc "art -illustration   of  British wartime rations on my  kitchen notice board to remind  me that I can manage with less,  a lot less. It shows a handful of  stewing meat, about an ounce  of cheese and butter and maybe  two   ounces   of   margarine  orland, a tablespoon of jam,  one half cup of sugar and loose  tea. This was the ration for one  person for a week, yet I don't  remember going hungry either.  One had different expectations  then, and coming out of the  twenties and thirties you hadn't  been in a position to over-eat  anyway.  There is no comparison with  the difficulties which face the  poor today, trying to cope,  often with no appropriate traditional skills, in a world of super  abundance where everything is  incredibly expensive. In the prewar days in England staples  such as flour, bread, milk,  margarine etc. were subsidized  so that they were affordable by  everyone.  Quite apart from the fact,  surely the Canada of the 80's  doesn't want to go back to wartime survival standards nor to  Dickensian England with  barefoot children begging in the  street?

See story below. ���John Bumside photo  A'Roast for Tommy'  by P.A. Sheridan  Sunday afternoon, April 12,  1987 marked a first for Branch  219 of the Royal Canadian  Legion (the Little Legion), in  beautiful downtown Roberts  Creek when a 'roast' was held,  honouring Tom DesLauriers,  long-time branch president.  Gayly festooned with  balloons arid "a large, computerized sign 'Welcome to  Tommy DesLauriers' Roast  -Here's Our Chance to Give  Him Hell - Be Fair - Wait for  the Bell.', the legion hall was  packed with legionaires from  Sechelt, Gibsons, local  members, the Roberts Creek  community and former boxing  associates from the Vancouver  area. Also present for the occasion were Elsie and Tom's  daughter Michelle and grandson  Nicolas; son Don and wife  Rachel; son Norm, wife Debbie  and grandaughter Lauren.  The theme of the roast  centered around Tommy's  career in the ring and his founding the Norburn Athletic Club  in North Burnaby, where he  coached young boxers in the  manly art of self defense. In  keeping with boxing ritual, each  speaker was announced by a resounding 'gong' from the  ringside bell, manned by timekeeper Jack Dovell. Fortunately  for the large number of friends  and well-wishers on hand, no  speaker exceeded the customary  three minute round.  Speakers from the legion  were Les Brown, Zone Commander, Sunshine Coast Zone;  Roy Milliner, fromer president  Branch 219; Dorothy Wright,  President, Ladies' Auxiliary;  Don VanKleek and Phil  Sheridan, all of Branch 219.  Dickie Huber, former Candian  National Champion boxer, in  colourful ring attire, spoke on  behalf of the boxing fraternity  as did Lennie Walters and Ed  Gill.  The roasting was interspersed  with comments of praise extolling the good work accomplished  by Tommy in his long years of  association with the legion and  boxing fraternity.  A pseudo hippie group,  suitably attired, put on an impressive skit to the consternation and amusement of all when  they staged a 'crash the party  scene'. Participants were Rocky  Zantolas, movie stuntman;  local boxing coach Barry  Krangle and well known national gold medal boxer, Tony  Duffy.  Following the roast, the guest  of honour was presented with a  beautiful burl clock, affixed  with legion identification and a  Canadian flag. Also a plaque,  Over 50 million  parents were  inspired by Foeus on  the Family. Now,  Dr. James  and Shirley  Dobson  have taken the  next dramatic  step.

Elsie was presented with a  skillfully arranged floral  decoration, made by Mamie  Young.  Tommy expressed his deep  appreciation for the honour  bestowed on him and while "he  felt he was undeserving, it was  nonetheless gratifying" he said,  "a complete surprise, I'm overwhelmed."  Following the event, a gour-  ment buffet was served by the  Ladies' Auxiliary of the branch.  During the afternoon, Katie  Zantolas, entertained with  piano renditions, both nostalgic  and contemporary, in her inimitable style.  Thanks for the event go to  Frank Zantolas, former boxer  and well known Sunshine Coast  personality; Dorothy Wright  and the ladies of Branch 219  Auxiliary; Katie Zantolas;  Margaret and Jack Dovall; Don  VanKleek and all members and  others who helped make Tommy's Roast such an outstanding  success.

Tulips  bloom in Pioneer Park under  the continuing care of the  Garden Club and in the field of  honour around the cenotaph in  Seaview Cemetery. These last  are cared for by the Legion  branches in this southern part  of the coast.  On a visit recently to the  cemetery, Art Rowell, a Vimy  veteran, proved himself a mine  of information and recollection  to the benefit of his younger  legion comrades. Art recalled  both the regiment arid brigade,  of every WW 1 veteran buried  there in the field of honour,  men he had known or known  about in post WW 1 days.  Branch 109 has increased its  itwo bursaries to Elphinstone to  $1000 each this year. Other  substantial donations have been  made to local organizations:  Elves Club, the Navy League,  minor hockey, the Sechelt Pipes  and Drums, and the Sunshine  Coast Boxing Club.  Donations have also been  made to B.C. Paraplegics  Association, Muscular  Dystrophy Society, and the  B.C. Heart Foundation.

A  Sechelt  Seniors  by Larry Grafton  > INFORMED SENIORS  , > It is very interesting to note in  C Chuck Bailey's column in the  : Vancouver Sun of April 14, that  la new society has been formed  ;to keep seniors abreast of our  7 quick changing existence.  : The first Seniors Resource  ���'I and Research Society of B.C. is  -a newly formed non-profit,  * non-commercial   organization,  > according to Bailey with a main  Drop off your  COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIEDS  at  The Coast News  Sechelt  "A Friendly People Place"  purpose of assembling, analysing and distributing information  of value to seniors, seniors'  organizations, government,  professional associations, etc.,  etc. The interim president is  Patricia Fulton.  He goes on to say B.C. has  350,000 persons 65 years and  over according to old age pension figures with another 6000  waiting to qualify. Another  300,000 are in the 55 to 60 year  range.  Obviously this massive body  of persons belong to a great  variety of seniors' organizations  but the umbrella group for all is  the Council of Senior Citizens'  Organization. Patricia Fulton  states "Our aim is to make  seniors well informed so they  will know what is happening.

NEW HYDRO RATES  According to a press release  under a Victoria headline in the  Vancouver Sun of April 3, Vancouver Island residents will soon  be getting a break on Hydro  bills if they are using electricity  to heat their homes. Energy  Minister Jack Davis said B.C.  Hydro will shortly be announcing rates which allow space  heating to occur at lower cost  than previously.  You will note Vancouver  Island has been specified and  probably (and I say probably)  this is because of a lack of access to a natural gas supply. We  on the Sunshine Coast are  federally lumped in with the  island and with some effort by  those affected, it seems we  could be included.  It has been suggested that a  deluge of letters may swing this  advantageous rate. Letters  could be sent to Diane Strom,  Director at large, Association of  Vancouver Island Municipalities (AVIM), PO Box 340,  Gibsons BC VON 1V0, who is  our delegate at large for the  AVIM and it is my understanding that she in turn, will present these to the minister.  This is a matter affecting all  residents of our Sunshine  Coast, so get your pens out and  start writing. For your convenience letters may be left at the  municipal hall in Sechelt to the  attention of Alderman Herder.  PLANT SALE  It's time for another reminder  of our May 2 Plant Sale in our  hall. For those members who  intend to donate plants, and  have procrastinated to date,  now is the time to prepare for  the fund raiser.  Quote of the Week  Man's distinction lieth not in ornaments or wealth, but rather in  virtuous behaviour and true  understanding.  BahaT Writings  nn^*htT~^^'  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  SOME EXPLANATIONS  There seems to be a little bit  of confusion regarding dates for  teas at Welcome Beach Hall.  First of all, the Spring Luncheon scheduled on your  Welcome Beach calendar has  been cancelled and replaced by  the Tea for Pets on Monday,  April 27 at 1:30 pm.  We hope that those of you  who were planning to attend the  Spring Luncheon will come to  Pete's tea where you can get  together with friends old and  new and have an enjoyable  afternoon while honouring  Pete's retirement. It is important however that you let Marg  Vorley know if you plan to attend in order that she will have  an idea of the number to cater  for.  There will be no charge for  admission, but a little mailbox  will be there for your contributions.  Another change of date is  that of the plant sale at the hall.  This will be on the Saturday of  the holiday weekend in May,  the 16th to be precise.  CAR WASH:  Those of you who feel that  your car could use a good shampoo could take your vehicle to  the back of Trail Bay Mall this  coming Saturday, April 26. You  will be helping towards funds  for the Welcome Beach Play  School by supporting this car  wash.  A NEW STORE:  Some of you may have  already noticed that a new store  has just opened at Halfmoon  Bay next to the post office. It's  called Trash & Treasures. Gordon and Nikki Standal of Halfmoon Bay are the proprietors  and they will take goods on consignment, be it crafts or any  other goods. Drop by and have  a look some time.  FISHING LICENSES:  A reminder to all you  fishermen that fishing licenses  are available at the B & J Store  in Halfmoon Bay. Your old one  expired at the end of March.

We  are angry that this has been imposed upon us with none of the consultation promised by  the VanderZalm government.  Some of the worst aspects are:  - Loss of 'due process.' The defined system of  teacher evaluation is withdrawn, teachers could be  subject to 30 days notice at the whim of school  boards.  ��� Loss of sick leave provisions in Schools Act.  - An imposed 'College of Teachers' which would  duplicate functions of the BCTF and Ministry, and  be charged to teachers. This 'College' concept has  been rejected by every other legislature in Canada  and exists nowhere in North America. There is no  educational research to support the validity of this  structure.  Why Parents  Concerned:  - The new legislation will change the public education system significantly. The Ministry did not implement recommendations from "Let's Talk About  Schools," and is jumping the gun on any recommendations from the appointed 'Royal Commission.'  They have presented no research bases for their new  policies.  - The separation of principals and vice-principals  from teachers will restrict the co-operative model of  schools and force a 'management' style on what  should be a democratic institution.  - Teachers will be forced into defensive positions,  afraid of flexible or innovative practices and curricula.  - The inflexible, confrontative implementation of this  legislation will damage professional enthusiasm for  years.  ��� Separation of principals and vice-principals from  teacher's organizations. They will be totally isolated  from collective bargaining.  - Despite the government's claim that teachers will  have full bargaining rights including the 'right to  strike' this is in fact not the case; Bill 19 strips these  rights from most organized workers.  - The 'temporary' Compensation Stabilization Program is being kept until October; in our view to  deliberately affect teachers bargaining one more  year. Under CSP, teachers have lost almost 20 per  cent of purchasing power, and now these controls  are being permanently enshrined in Bill 19.  ~i'4'<  V0npv>"  Teachers Will Be:  - Taking whatever action necessary to stop or delay  this legislation. We would prefer serious consultation but if this is denied, job action is our only alternative.  - Restricting extra-curricular activities. This is painful for us and for students, but this is the only option  we have available to protest this draconian legislation.  I  ��� To be patient with us ��� we are engaged in a campaign to save public education as we know it in  British Columbia.  ��� Write to Premier VanderZalm, Education Minister  Tony Brummet, and MLA Harold Long demanding  that the legislation be tabled until subjected to full  consultation and research.  ��� Join with school parent groups to look into the effects of this legislation and support us in our efforts  to amend and improve it.  Thank you for your understanding  If you would like a speaker to explain our position to your organization,  please phone us at 886-8870. 10.  Coast News, April 20,1987  Members of the Gibsons Garden Club donated their time on a  beautiful Sunday afternoon at Pioneer Park in Gibsons to tend to  the flowers and shrubbery.  -Kent Sheridan photo  Harmony Hall  by Gladys Coates  The April general meeting,  with Jim Monroe in the chair,  was attended by 74 members  and four visitors.  Most of the activities at Harmony Hall are winding down  for the season. Carpet bowling  has been very enjoyable, and at  the annual banquet on May 6,  we will find out who the winners  are. It has been a lot of fun for  the 48 participants.  Friday FunNight will come to  an end on April 24, with a pot  luck dinner at 6 pm. Attendance  has been quite good the last  three months, and I hope all of  you who enjoyed the card  games will come with new enthusiasm in October.  Many of our seniors lead  busy lives gardening and travelling from May to October, so  after the June meeting we  assemble again in September.  Jean Roberts has organized  some very much appreciated  trips each month during the  winter, the latest being a trip to  the Reifel Bird Sanctuary near  Ladner, with side trips to  Lonsdale and Guildford shopping centres. These trips provide  a wonderful opportunity to people without their own transportation, so do take advantage of  them, so they can be continued.  The next big event is the Spring Dance on April 25. Tickets  are available at $5 each from  Grace Gilchrist at 886-8734.  Music, as we like it, supplied by  Bill Malyea.  Sometime early in May, we  hope to get a group together for  slow pitch softball at Brother's  Park. Anyone interested contact Rene at 886-2391, Cathie at  886-2829, or Glady at  886-7685. The Ti Chi excercise  class has become quite popular  on Tuesday afternoons, and  those attending are finding it  beneficial. Ceramics and painting are also popular creative  classes, and hope they continue  in the fall.  The new play school adjacent  to Harmony Hall is nearing  completion, and the children  will be using the lawn area of  the hall for a playground. May  the old and the young grow in  harmony.  We are hoping to replace the  present grass with a type of turf  that will not need mowing, also  to use part of that ground to increase parking facilities.  There are so many members  who give of themselves to make  the hall a pleasant, enjoyable,  clean place to meet, it would  take pages to list them all, but  through their efforts we all are  able to appreciate the wonderful  facility that we have. So consider yourself thanked if you  have done your bit.  The Public Bingo will close  for the summer on April 30,  and we would like to thank all  those who attended, and the  group who run the bingo. lit is a  combined effort which pays off j  and keeps our hall operating.  Last but not least, thanks to  the Garden Club which keeps  the park on the corner blooming. A real asset to the town.  Gardening  by Marguerite  There are so many jobs one  can find in the garden to do at  this time of the year, and the  weather sometimes delays us.  Visit your local nurseries, they  have well cared for plants and  are very helpful.  Pinch out tops of broad  beans.  For pests, spray apple and  pear trees in pink bud stage, and  gooseberries and currants with  diazanon after flowering.  Beat the cabbage root fly by  sprinkling a little diazanon soil  insecticide around the base of  the plant. Or, if you don't like  chemicals, a six inch by six inch  square of old carpet underlay,  with a slit on one side, fits tightly around stem, preventing eggs  being laid there.  Fertilize all spring flowering  bulbs and perennials with 6-8-6,  or fish fertilizers. Mulch  evergreens, if grass is pale in  colour and dress with high  nitrogen fertilizer. Mulching  supresses weeds. Any weeds  that do manage to poke through  after repeated mulching are  weakly rooted, and easy to pull,  or may be mulched over yet  again. Keep mulching.

The Bach Prelude and Fugue  which opened the program had  one or two imprecise entries,  but I particularly enjoyed learning each instrument with its own  line of music as part of the polyphonic whole.  The Mozart Divertimento  was played well, with some very  nice phrasing. Here, the group  allowed each player to shine  forth when it was his turn for  the melody to come through.  Reicha was a contemporary  of Beethoven and he obviously  expected his music to be played  by virtuoso musicians. The final  rondo gave the group a chance  to show their talents as individuals as well as ensemble  players.  Most of the audience really  enjoyed the Svetlanov, a  modern impressionistic Russian  work which gave a good chance  for the players to show artistic  interpretation and variation  ranging from the gentle rocking  movement in Vecher to the  vivacious foot stamping  Polnoch.  The Hindemith was a very interesting piece and the composer made use of some  marvellous combinations*** of  sounds with strange tones and  resulting sonorities.  Malcolm Arnold's suite was  light hearted yet was not treated  superficially and a crisp and colourful rendition was the result.  After receiving a standing  ovation, the group played two  encores, one, a virtuosic performance of Rimsky-Korsakov's  Flight of the Bumble Bee, and  then The Old Gronch, a dazzling, technically brilliant piece by  Fuchek.  I disagree with one critic from  Waterloo, Ontario, who said  that the sound of East European Wind players took some  getting used to. Indeed, I found  the tone of the Moscow Wind  Quintet to be very pleasant indeed, yet showing ability to  change that tone, should the  piece they were playing demand  it.  I think that most of the audience did not regret giving up  their Sunday afternoon gardening session to go to this concert.  Vancouver was no longer a  workplace for loggers by this  time. It had become their home  port and chief watering hole, a  place of bright lights, boisterous  bars and wayward ladies, a  place to fight, roister, gamble,  drink and fornicate as long as  the hard-earned money lasted.  The Skidroad (for already the  several-block area around the  Union Steamship docks had  begun to acquire that name),  was the stakey logger's  playground. It was to remain  that way for many decades, well  into my own logging days, a  seamy paradise where a bushed  man could shake the bunkhouse  blues in short order.  In Woodsmen of the West,  M. Allerdale Grainger (who  describes the early Skidroad  with obvious fascination), imagines the rationale of the  stakey logger after those first  few drinks. "Pretty soon you  feel the sweet reasonableness of  it all. A hard-working man  should indemnify himself for  past hardships. He owes it to  himself to have a hobby of  some kind. You indulge a hobby for whiskey."  The trouble with such a hobby is that it can become a total  end in itself. Already the  Skidroad has a small but growing colony of ragged winos,  most of them burned out loggers who had let their thirsts get  the better of them.  But for most of the celebrants, it was back to the agencies when the last few dollars  were spent. These hiring halls  lined Carrall Street, beckoning  the hung-over loggers back to  more hard labour. There was  considerable competition  among the 'slave markets' for  the available manpower. Most  of the employed skills or man-  catchers who hung around the  various saloons, keeping their  eyes peeled for the loggers who  were running out of steam and  money, buying them drinks, inveigling them into signing new  hiring slips before their stakes  were even gone.  Carrall Streef pointed like an  arrow to the Union Steamship  docks! These black and red1  boats had names like the  Camosun, the Comox and most  famous of all, the Cassiar. They  provided the only link between  Vancouver and the upcoast settlements and logging camps.  Seaplanes and radio telephones  were still on the drawing board.  Although loggers travelling  back and forth to the woods  provided a large percentage of  the Steamship Company's business, the unruly woodsmen were  given considerably less than red  carpet treatment. They were  generally assigned to a second  class area known as the bullpen. The Union captains had no  illusions about this segment of  their clientele. Their passenger  lists read: Men, Women and  Loggers.  Back in the woods, a radical  new advance in logging methods  was taking place. This was the  introduction   of   spartrees.

The logs were  constantly becoming hung up  behind stumps and had to be  fought free by cursing hook-  tenders. It was a slow and unsatisfactory process.  The answer was to hang two  heavy duty blocks, high in a  topped tree and run the  mainline and haulback line  through these. This provided  the missing element of "lift",  allowed the logs to nose up over  most obstacles, and vastly improved the whole operation.  This high lead system of yarding logs as developed in the  Louisiana bayous as early as  1890 but took a couple of decades to find its way to the West  Coast. It was first used in B.C.  in 1911.  The advent of spartrees  brought with it, the era of the  high-rigger. These steeplejacks  of the tall timber were called  upon to top the trees and hang  the blocks and guylines, often  180 feet above the ground. Most  of the early riggers were ex-  sailors, accustomed to scrambling around in the shrouds of  windjammers. Belted, spurred  and utterly fearless, they  became a breed apart in the logger's pantheon. They also commanded the highest wages, as  much as $8 a day. Only the  fallers made more money but  they worked on a contract basis.

Olde Time Favourites  With Steve and Jack  Steve White and Jack Inglis  have a surprise guest this week  on their popular musical request  show.  I'm sure that the children's  story of Ferdinand the Bull was  written as an astrological  allegory about the sign of  Taurus. The image of a bull sitting and sniffing the flowers,  refusing to budge until stung by  a bee captures perfecdy the  essence of those born under the  sign of Taurus (April  21 to May 21).  Ruled by the planet Venus, it  is in sitting quietly, preferably in  nature that Taurians find their  sense of rightness. A natural  link is formed between experiencing a oneness with  nature and an external expression of that harmony. This is  Taurus at its best.  Of course there is a shadow  side, too. Deprived of quiet  contemplation and an opportunity to get in touch with their  place in the universal scheme of  things, Taurus may try to get a  sense of security from the accumulation of possessions.  While this will never fill the  real need that these people have,  it's a difficult habit to break.  When you do something well,  and it gives you pleasure to do  it, why in the world would you  change your ways for some ambiguous goal like 'being at peace  with   yourself.'  Unfortunately, (getting back  to Ferdinand) there is inevitably  a bee sting which gets immovable Taurians going in spite  of themselves.  Those of you who were born  between April 21 and April 25  have already gone through some  massive changes in the last four  years, and you may be relieved  to know that the hardest part is  over. Whatever the turmoil and  whatever self-doubts you have  had, you are now at the stage of  building on what is left.  This time, try to remember  that the peace and security that  you need must be found within  yourself. That is most easily accomplished when you're by the  ocean or in the woods. Mountain tops aren't bad either.  If you were born between  April 26 and May 2, you're  right in the centre of transition.  If you try to fight the changes  that are happening to you,  you're going to lose. What's  more, it will hurt a lot more  than necessary. One of the  hardest things for any Taurus to  do is to let go, but that's exactly  what you have to do now.  Whatever fate seems to be ripping away from you, let it go.  This stage will continue until  the end of 1988. When you start  to rebuild, consider the advice  given above.  That leaves the rest of you  born under the sign of Taurus.  The turmoil, the letting go, the  changing is still ahead of you.  Between now and 1995, all of  you will experience it as Pluto  travels opposite your suns, "i  Whatever form it takes with  each of you, the best way you  can prepare yourself is to start  finding that sense of security ir)-  side you. No matter what else  happens you can always conje  home to that. I  Third annual;  PLANT SALE]  May 2, 10-4  at the empty lot  next to the  Twilight Theater.

Roberts Creek  LEGION"  "The Little Legion"  DINNERS BY MAMIE  Every Friday, 5-7 pm  $3.00  Fri & Sat Apr. 24 & 25  SLIM & THE PICKUPS  Members & Guests welcome  The Raven Cafe on Sechelt's Cowrie Street is a clean, attractive  establishment which serves good, no-nonsense food quickly for the hurrying, business-bound diner. If your schedule is constricted and you  want just a tasty bite to speed you onwards, it is an ideal spot to stop in.  If you have a sweet tooth, however, your schedule can go awry when  you confront the big board which has coloured pictures and  mouthwatering descriptions of the 24 ice cream delights which the Raven  serves up as dessert.  I dashed in on a recent busy day knowing that I could be sure of a  good filling lunch from their complete selection of burgers and sandwiches and be on my way without delay -and then I saw the board again.  Dessert became an abundance of possibilities and I couldn't possibly  choose.  I decided to order the daily special, which was a hearty bowl of zesty  chili with garlic toast and a generous portion of thick-cut, golden French  fries and while eating my main couse decide on my dessert.  "How am I going to choose dessert?" I asked the lady who took my  order.  "Decide on the basis of what you've got room for after you've eaten  your chili," she said practically.  "But they all seem so good," I whined.  "Then come in every day and have a different one till you've tried  them all," she said.  I took a table near the board and studied it while I ate. It was a hearty  helping of chili and the lady was right, I made my mind up based on  available space and ordered the Butterscotch Special from the selection  which included Strawberry Supreme, Henry the Eighth, Gourmet's Extravaganza, Sweet Superstitious, Choc Suey, Banana Bonanza, Delectable, Royale or Ultimate.  Decision made, I ordered my Butterscotch Special.  "What flavour of ice cream would you like in it?" asked the helpful  gentleman. I took his advice and had my Butterscotch Special on a base  of pineapple and coconut ice cream - 'a little bit of heaven' is how he  described it.  And he was right. Whilst I ate it I tried to calculate all the permutations possible with the 24 possible ice cream delights and the eight basic  ice cream flavours with which to make them. I soon lost track of my  calculations due to the insidious effects of butterscoth sauce and decided  to continue my explorations of the possibilities on other visits.  For a quick, practical and tasty lunch with a little delicious decadence  for dessert, I heartily recommend the Raven Cafe on Cowrie Street.

The modern equipment, designed for operating  convenience, has freed crew  members from the frustrating  task of operating out-dated  machinery that was continously  being modified or repaired and  has allowed them to become  more positively involved in processing a quality product.  The bleached pulp, diluted to  10 per cent pulp, and 90 per cent  water, is futher diluted to one  per cent pulp and 99 per cent  water which enters the Wet end  of the machine and is under the  control of the Machine Operator. The pulp slurry is formed into a sheet on an endless  woven plastic screen.  The pulp sheet then flows into a series of felt covered roller  presses, squeezing out the water  to a consistency of 50 per cent  pulp, 50 per cent water. From  the  roller  presses,   the  sheet  passes through the 96 foot long,  39 foot high, 33 foot wide Flakt  Dryer   which   utilizes   steam  heated, fan forced air to dry the  pulp sheet,  achieving a consistency of 94 per cent pulp and  six per cent water blend. Control of this process requires experience and constant attention  by the Machine Operator.      i  " The pulp sheet is ready for  the finishing system and comes  under the charge of the Assistant Machine Operator,  who  oversees the process through to  the  warehouse;   the  Machine  Room Baler, who operates the  baling   line   and   tests   pulp  samples for moisture content,  cleanliness and brightness; Line  Truck  Operator,  who makes  sure that the pulp bales are properly   wrapped,   stacked   and  delivered to the warehouse; and  the Utility Man, who aside from  assisting in all phases of the  Machine Room operations, is  responsible for housekeeping.  The Machine Room crew interact closely with each other  while carrying out their respon-  sibilites. They check and triple  check the test results and computer printouts to ensure that  the product in their system  meets the required standards.  The finishing or packaging  area begins at the Cutter  Layboy which automatically  cuts the endless sheets of pulp  into squares and piles them into  bales. The bales proceed down  the automated baling line,  where they are weighed and  then pressed to a uniform  height.  The pulp bales continue  through the line equipment and  are wrapped, tied with wire,  stamped with the company's  logo and stacked into units of  eight bales.  The units are transferred to  the warehouse and are ready to  be shipped to customers  throughout the world. The shipping department will be profiled  in the next article.  Honoured  Three local musicians received 100 dollar bursaries at the  Honours Concert of The Sunshine Coast Music Festival on  April 10. First class marks were  achieved by Jason Baggio, instrumental, Josephine Hammond, vocal, and Christopher  McKee, piano.  The cash awards are  presented annually by the Sunshine Coast Arts Council on the  recommendation of the adjudicator. In presenting this  year's awards, Arts Council  President, Sheila Page, stressed  the educational value of preparing for and participating in  juried competitions in the arts.

In Land Recording District of Vancouver and situated W P McNab  Ck. Take notice that Guinet Management Ltd. of Vancouver intends to apply for a lease of the following lands: commencing at a  post planted at the SW cor. L2505; thence 150 m at 150; thence  4��0 m at 60; thence 150 m at 330; thence SW along shore to  post; containing 6 ha. more or less. The purpose for which the  disposition is required is fish farming. Comments concerning this  application may be made to the Office of the District Land  Manager, 4240 Manor St., Burnaby, B.C. V5G 1B2. (File no.  2403029).           Continued from page 2  arms race is a threat to human  survival and to the future of  every citizen. The young people  now in the schools will have to  cope with it. They are the hope  of the future. Surely we owe it  to them and to future generations to educate them for peace  in freedom and security. This  public issue demands a public  response through the schools."  Even the Nanaimo City  Council is supportive of this initiative. "Cdbncil wishes to ex  press support in principle for  your Conference on May 2 and  the need to include Peace  Education in our school  system."  I recently received some information from the States  about the debate there on peace  in the schools. Apparently the  US Army routinely engages in  military recruitment in US  highschools. Ifot students in  San Diego took their School  Board to court when they were  denied the right to counteract  the Army recruitment advertising with information about  peace.  The court ruling stated that  "The Board cannot allow the  presentation of one side of ah  issue, but prohibit the presentation of one side of an issue but  prohibit the presentation of the  other side." It ruled that  military recruiting ads were "in-  herentljtpolitical and controversial."

Does Peace Education have a place in our system?  Colman McCarthy (a writer who also teaches peace  studies at three US universities) states that education  about alternatives to war is essential. ��^>  McCarthy points out that we can "blame the  Reagans, Gorbachev's, Pinochets, Castros, or  whoever happens to be the latest Pharaoh; but they  aren't the problem." The problem is our ignorance  of any alternative.  The Conference, at Malaspina College, Saturday,  May 2 (9:00 to 4:30) will be a good opportunity for  us to learn more about the cultural progenitors of  the peace movement, and the broader approach the  movement is taking in seeking a world without  violence. The Conference is FREE for students. ,  For information or registration call June at  247-8015, or Jean at 247-8368. Billeting and  childcare available at 247-8357.

Coast News, April 20,1987  Sechelt against "second Labour Day  1 9  Diesel Engine Rebuilding  Industrial Parts  Hwy 101,  Hactelra Park  The Sunshine Coast Labour  Council's request that April 28  be declared a day of recognition  for workers who have been killed, injured or disabled on the  job was turned down by Sechelt  Municipal Council last Wednesday.  The request came in the form  of a letter from president Lynda  Olsen, who wrote that "over  10,000 Canadian workers have  been killed in Canada's  workplaces in the last decade."  Olsen went on to quote  statistics and costs, much of  which were based on 1982  figures, the most recent  available, when more than one  million injuries were reported,  nearly half of which were  disabling.  However, Alderman Anne  Langdon said that she had 'dif  ficulty' with the request. "I  don't see the need for a second  Labour Day." she said.  Mayor Bud Koch agreed,  pointing out "so many people  are being killed in different  fields."  Other council business included a motion against the  privatization of liquor sales.  Mayor Koch and several  aldermen agreed that privatiza-  There's only one machine  you canbankon in Gibsons.

In spite of  Alderman Langdon and  Shanks' opposition, the motion  was passed.  Later in the meeting, council  voted to endorse a request by  the Township of Langley to ask  the provincial government to  reconsider the levy of a sales tax  on real estate transactions.  The motion passed:  Aldermen Langdon, Shanks,  Craig and Herder in favour;  Aldermen Short and Kolibas  opposed.  Drug  program  by Ken Collins  On May 13, the Chatelech  Parents' Group will put on a 12  hour program addressing drug  and alcohol abuse entitled 'It  Can't Happen To Me'. There  will be 23 different workshops  designed to deal with substance  abuse in all areas of the community, not just young people.  High School Principal Brian  Butcher wants the community  to realize it is not a school problem but a community problem. Ten per cent of students  in his school are severely affected by some form of drug  abuse. The result is truancy and  a total lack of motivation.  Alcohol is the drug of choice.  Many kids are concerned about  parents who are alcoholics and  don't go for treatment. When  bluntly asked if he would be encouraging kids to turn in their  parents Mr. Butcher stated with  emphasis, "No. Our main concern is not reporting but  teaching kids choice" he said.  He went on to explain they were  there to keep kids out of trouble, not get them into it.  The approach is a novel one  and may be a first in Canada. It  is generating lots of enthusiastic  support. At least one Vancouver paper has already committed a reporter to cover it.  EXCAVATING  BUILDING CONTRACTORS  ICG LIQUID GAS  ��� Auto Propane  ��� Appliances  ��� Quality B.B.

See story below.  Hicks announces  Guild to administer 'Rest'  by Kent Sheridan  In an interview with the  Coast News, Captain W.Y.  Higgs of Gibsons, B.C. is pleased to announce the following  concerning Mariners' Rest, the  only official sea burial marker  in the waters of B.C. that is  sanctioned by government.  As of December, 1986,  Mariners' Rest has come under  the Custodianship and Administration of The Canadian  Merchant Service Guild,  (CMSG).  Captain Higgs, who for the  last 15 years has been the coordinator between the provincial government and all concerned, wishes to inform  mariners and their relatives in  the community and across  Canada that arrangements for  the holding of services and the  scattering of ashes of those who  wish to be committed to the sea  may now be made by writing to  The Secretary, CMSG, 230  West Broadway, Vancouver,  BC V5Y 1P7, or by telephone at  872-7811. Transportation and  other information will also be  available there.  Mariners' Rest is located four  miles north of Gibsons near  Gambier Island in Thorn-  borough Channel, Howe  Sound. Previous to 1979 the  waters adjacent to the islet had  been historically and unofficially utilized for the 'committal of  ashes' of mariners and their  relatives so development into  the permanent marker in  perpetuity that it is today was  most appropriate.  A permanent record of each  memorial   service   with   par  ticulars will be kept at the offices of The CMSG with copies  of the document sent to The  Company of Master Mariners,  The Mission to Seamen, and  The Town Clerk, Town Hall,  Gibsons, B.C.  It is expressly requested that  no landing be made on the islet  as it is a dedicated site.  Likewise, the natural beauty of  the islet must be maintained.  Schools reversal on  French Immersion  French Immersion will not be  centered at Davis Bay. This  decision was reached unanimously at the Tuesday, April 14  School Board meeting held at  Roberts Creek Elementary. The  program will be housed at both  Sechelt and Gibsons Elementary  for the next three years.  School Board Chairperson  Maureen Clayton expressed  pleasure at the board being able  to bend to the needs of the community and the decision elicited  a burst of applause from the 60  persons in attendance.  The Sechelt Indian Band has  requested to meet with the  School Board to discuss the  education budget and mutual  areas of concern regarding the  education of students. The  board will attempt to arrange a  meeting during the last week in  April.  Canadian Union of Public  Employees, Local 801 asked the  School Board to proclaim April  28 an annual official day of  recognition for Canadian  workers killed or injured on the  job with one minute's silence to  he_observed,_if possible, at ll1  am. ,  "Working people are killeq  on the job every day in Canada.  We suffer the loss as communities." said Trustee Judy  Wilson.  Trustee Fuller pointed out  that the school curriculum does  not give adequate recognition to  the workers. "Without the  workers the country would be  nothing."  The motion passed without  opposition.  A new and innovative proposal "which will provide an  avenue for employment opportunities for youth as well as  social and employment counselling at a peer level" was  presented to the Regional Board  last week. The presentation was  made by Area A Director Gordon Wilson who conceived the  idea.  The concept, called B.C.  Youth Industries, is based on  three assumptions: that there is  a real need for an alternative  method of employment and  skill   development   after   high  Native  Studies  On Saturday evening, May  2, Gloria Cranmer-Webster  will be a special guest speaker at  the Sechelt Indian Band Hall  for the opening ceremony of a  film and video festival focusing  on native culture. Ms Cranmer-  Webster is currently the director  of the U-Mista Museum and  Cultural Centre, which was  built to preserve and display a  unique collection of North West  Coast cultural artifacts many  of which were returned from  museums and private collections around the world.  Potlatch is a powerful film  which outlines government actions which were instrumental  in destroying native culture and  traditions. Ms Cranmer-Webster was involved in the production of that film and its recent  sequel Box of Treasures which  documents the restoration of  those articles  In addition to the films  shown at the opening at the  Sechelt Indian Band Hall on  Saturday, May 2 from 6 to 9  pm, a variety of short films and  videos will also be available for  viewing at both the Band Hall  and Chatelech High School on  Saturday, May 2 from 11 am  to 4 pm. These will include old  favourites such as "The Loon's  Necklace", feature artists such  as Bill Reid, and recent International Film Festival award winner Richard Cardinal; Cry  From the Diary of a Metis  Child .  On Sunday, May 3, viewing  will be available at Chatelech  High School only, from 11 am  to 4 pm. The closing session at  Chatelech from 4 to 6 pm will  give an opportunity to discuss  some of the many issues raised.  A weekend pass is available  for $3, before April 24, or $5 at  the door.

The peer counselling program, which involves an extensive two month training session  in the summer would appear to  be the perfect complement to a  peer counselling program which  is being introduced at Chatelech  Senior Secondary. However, in  addition to developing counselling skills for handling social  problems, the training would include a heavy employment  preparation component.  The second part of the program addresses the problem  that young people face in gaining work experience which will  prepare them for the job market. Wilson suggested that "vertically integrated industry be  undertaken  that  would  both  provide job training from the  primary through the tertiary:  sector, and would be self sus-:  taming providing both income;  and a moderate profit for those  involved."  The proposal was accompanied by flow charts showing  the possibilities of either,  agricultural based or industrial,  based industries. It will now be?  presented to the Economic!
