See story on page five. ���Brad Benson photo  Forest advisory committee says  No to selling crown land  When the Forestry Advisory  Committee met last Wednesday  night most of their time was  spent going over the recommendations made in the Review of  Forest Management put out by  the Ministry of Forests and  Lands. The report was released  on January 13 and invited  public input on the 56 recommendations to be submitted by  February 20.  The Forestry Advisory Committee is comprised of various  industry, regional district,  forestry and environmental  group representatives who bring  their diverse perspectives and  expertise to bear on issues concerning forest management on  the Sunshine Coast.  In spite of the disparity of the  individual concerns of each  member of the committee, the  group was unanimous in then-  reaction to some of the issues  raised. They emphatically rejected a suggestion put forth in  the report that the government  "Allow small, isolated pieces of  Crown timber land to be privately owned where appropriate".  C In an interview with the  Coast News Area A Director  :j$rett McGillivray called the  Concept dangerous. "Forest  3and is a lot more than just  ?trees.' Once you have given  forest land away, you've given  laway a whole host of other  ^things," he warned.  % Another section of the report  fdealt with the use of herbicides  and pesticides and included the  ���icomment "Pesticides are considered an essential and practical option for protecting forest  stands and high-valued forest  areas from unwanted vegetation  and pests." On the opposite  page is a picture of a worker in  white coveralls spraying some  bushes with the caption  underneath, "Public awareness  of the benefits of using  pesticides  is  the  key to  the  ministry's   pest   management  program."  McGillivray said that the  committee was "not happy with  the tone of the recommendations" regarding the use of  chemical sprays. Their recommendations to the ministry  regarding this and most of the  other issues raised in thfe review  involve close consultation with  local   governments,   advisory  groups and the public.  Any individuals who wish to  comment on the recommendations made in the Forest  Management Review, should  send them before February 20  to: Forest Management Review,  Ministry of Forests and Lands,  4000 Seymour Place, Victoria  BC V8V 1X4.  Gibsons  The water frontage tax for property in the Town of Gibsons is being increased from 80 cents per frontage foot to $1.  The amendment authorizing the increase, By-Law Number  565,1987, received first reading at last weeks council meeting.  According to Clerk-Treasurer Lorraine Goddard, this will  allow capital works expenditures to be made from revenues  instead of borrowings which has been the practice in the past.  Goddard added that the Regional District is now successfully  using this method of funding their water system's capital  works.  Sechelt Streets get  New face  The Downtown Revitaliza-  tion Committee made a submission to Sechelt Council on  Wednesday night and came  away with approval in principle  for Phase I of their plan for  sprucing up Wharf and Cowrie  Streets.  The project calls for an investment of $162,500 by the  Sechelt District and $137,500 by  affected property owners. All  costs of the revitalization can be  provided by the provincial  government under a preferential  loan, repayed over 12 years of  which the first two are interest  free.  A major part of the plan involves   relocating   hydro   and  telephone poles away from the  main sidewalk area. This  qualifies them for an outright  grant of $41,600 from  Municipal Affairs which would  be divided equally between the  district and the property  owners.  Other streetscape improvements include public  seating, flowering trees, litter  receptacles, spot lighting and  rough cedar signage poles, and  sidewalks on Wharf Street.  Bill Bailey, spokesman for  the committee, said that they  hope to commence work this  April in order to have the work  completed by June, in time for  this year's tourist season.  Gibsons joins the race  Rick Hanson challenge  The Rick Hansen "Man in  Motion" campaign to increase  awareness and raise money for  the physically handicapped has  been greatly aided by a  challenge put out by Powell  River.  The mayor's first challenges  went out last July. An update  letter, sent last month to the  Town of Gibsons, was considered by council last week and  it has decided to join in. An ad  is appearing in this week's  Coast News and Alderman  Kunstler has volunteered to coordinate fund raising efforts for  the town.  Alderman Kunstler has a  growing list of fund raising activities in the planning stages for  Gibsons and is how organizing a  committee of volunteers to  assist her.  Arrangements have been  made with the Royal Bank in  the Sunnycrest Mall and with  the Bank of Montreal in lower  Gibsons, for the deposit of contributions. Contributions may  also be made at the town office.  Anyone wishing to help, or  who has an idea to pass along,  may call Mrs. Kunstler at her  home, 886-9058, or at the town  office, 886-2274.  Sechelt has already been doing its part with various fund  raising activities taking place.  Sechelt Alderman Mike Shanks  reported at the last council  meeting that approximately  $2000 had been raised to date.  Supershape's $5 haircut campaign raised most of this with  the Polar Bear Swim and individual donations making up  the rest.  Sechelt area residents wishing  to participate should contact  Mike Shanks at 885-3644 or  Maureen Clayton at 885-2629.  Contributions may be deposited  at either the Royal Bank or the  Sunshine Coast Credit Union.  Powell River Mayor Colin  Palmer's  challenge  has  been  sent to the Sunshine Circle  Route communities of Gibsons,  Sechelt, Comox, Courtenay,  Parksville, Nanaimo, Lady-  smith, Duncan, Victoria,  Saanich, West Vancouver and  Delta.  The winner will receive a  trophy donated by the Powell  River Council. Results will be  decided by the community  which has raised the greatest  amount of money per capita.  Palmer has also asked participating communities to lobby  "Man in Motion" headquarters  in support of his invitation to  Rick Hansen to take the Sunshine Circle Tour himself.  Hansen is expected to reach  Vancouver this May.  \mi  Ferry rates go up  The B.C. Ferry Corporation has announced changes in  fares and commuter ticket sales as of February 15. On that  date, books of five day passes costing $65 will no longer be  available. Commuters will have to purchase discount tickets  in books of 20 at a cost of $307.50.  The cost of individual fares will be increased to $20.50 for  each vehicle and driver and $4.50 for walk-on passengers.  Press Council decision  Burnside unbiased  The B.C. Press Council, in an  adjudication announced today,  partially upheld a complaint by  Jim McDowell of Gibsons  against the Sunshine Coast  News and its publisher, John  ^^urnside..,   ^w .,...  The complaint concerned two  stories: written by Burnside  about .meetings of local advisory bodies. Burnside had  taken part in the proceedings as  well as acting as reporter, and  McDowell called this "irresponsible journalism" that had  resulted in reports that were unfair and biased.  The complainant accused the  publisher of "using the news  sections of his weekly newspaper to flog his personal opinions and bias."  At a hearing before the Press  Council, Burnside denied the  accusation and said he wrote the  stories largely from the minutes  of the meeting. He said there  had been no attempt to deceive  anybody.  Text of the adjudication:  "The Council ruled that the  complainant failed to substantiate his claim that the stories in  question were self-serving or  biased. Nor was evidence  presented   substantiating   the  claim that Mr. Burnside's  reporting of meetings in which  he participated was long-standing practice.  "The Council said, however,  the Mr. Burnside should have  identified himself as the writer  of the stories, either through ar  byline, referring to himself in ^  the first person in the bodies of;  the stories, or by editor's note  following the stories.  "On this one point only, the  complaint is upheld."  Editor's Note: The above is a  press release issued by the B.C.  Press Council and printed  without alterations or deletions.  Travel Sunshine Coast meeting  Support shown by many  by J. Bakhwal  The Sunshine Coast Tourism  Task Force marketing committee held a meeting on Tuesday  to reveal the results of a nine  month investigation into  upgrading the tourist industry  on the Sunshine Coast. Approximately 30 people attended,  some from as far as Pender  Harbour, to participate in the  discussion.  The committee, represented  at the meeting by Bryan Rubin,  Vene Parnell, and Irene  Lugsdin, has developed a  coherent strategy to market the  Coast as a tourist area using a  co-operative approach by  private business and existing  related organizations.  To combine all efforts with  private operators into a single  group representative of the  whole Sunshine Coast area  from Powell River to Gibsons  would provide a greater impact  on potential markets. It would  also allow the Coast to participate in the Ministry of  Tourism's Partners in Tourism  (PIT) program. This program is  committed to matching every  dollar raised to promote  tourism in southwestern B.C.,  and can effectively double the  advertising budget of the Sunshine Coast in 1987.  The committee hopes to raise  a working budget of $150,000  for 1987. This would include the  PIT matched funding as well as  donations from the private sector. Tourist operators who contribute $500 will receive such  concrete benefits as subsidized  advertising using Sunshine  Coast brochures, representation  in travel shows, bookings for  Sunshine Coast tours, etcetera.  Altogether the meeting had  an optimistic air and a practical,  organized and well documented  plan of action was presented, it  was stressed that tourism is a  renewable market that does not  deplete natural resources and  that creates, as an industry, new  economic possibilities and  growth which benefit not only  visitors to the Coast but its  residents as well.  Bryan Rubin, who, with  Vene Parnell, will be presenting  the strategy in Powell River on  Tuesday, was pleased with the  number of people who attended  as well as the diversity of area  and industry they represented.  He pointed out that for every  dollar spent in a tourist facility,  another five is spent on other  services in the area. "The point  of this strategy is to instigate a  co-operative effort to bring people to the Coast so that all  businesses will prosper."  The large turnout at, the  meeting was considered to be  largely responsible for the decision by the Economic Develop^  ment Committee to contribute  $15,000 towards implementing  the strategy. Committee members appeared to be pleased with  the broad base of support which  the venture has received.  Those who wish for more information can contact the Task  Force through: Travel Sunshine  Coast, Box 605, Sechelt, or at  886-2887 and 886-8341. The  next meeting will be held on  February 19 at 9 am in the  regional board office in Sechelt.  It is open to the public.  Vene Parnell and Bryan Rubin, of the Sunshine Coast Tourism  Task Force Marketing Committee, are listening attentively to the  questions and suggestions voiced by the men and women who attended last Tuesday's Tourism Task Force meeting.���dark Kent photo Coast News, February 9,1987  hi mlmi<mi^it\tmmimi*^mmmwiumiimimtmtm-  How meaningful  is it?  Prime Minister Mulroney's recent trip to Africa and his  re-statement of Canada's opposition to apratheid won him  a warm welcome in the borderline countries to the giant  South Africa. It was exactly what a beleagured politician  harried by domestic difficulties needed.  Similarly, President Reagan's avowel in favour of a free  trade pact with Canada as an example to the rest of the  trading world is likely a direct result of Mulroney's lobbying with Vice-President George Bush and would appear to  be another feather in the Prime Minister's cap.  There is a degree, however, to which both of these are  disturbingly redolent of the Mulroney image politics approach.  For instance, the South African ambassador was right  in that there are still some thorny decisions to be made in  Canada about the indigenous people of this continent and  it would be fair to say that the present federal government  has not made convincing headway in showing that their  concerns in the matter are real concerns.  President Reagan's verbal commitment to free trade is  not wholly reassuring given the barriers that have been  erected to free trade in the past months. Many Canadians  are still apprehensive about the economic developments  between this country and its giant neighbour and apprehensive about the future of Canada's somewhat shaky  independence on the North American continent.  We have still to be convinced that the Prime Minister's  successful public relations visit to Africa and his success in  winning from President Reagan an avowal in favour of  free trade will mean much as events unfold.  We should not forget that Mulroney would have had us  believe that some action was going to be taken jointly on  the problem of acid rain, but no action has materialized.  The lingering feeling persists that Canada would win  itself more stature in the world if its brave words about  social justice and human rights were being energetically  pursued at home. The lingering feeling persists that in  these free trade negotiations with a country 10 times our  size, which already has a disproportionate amount of our  trade we may be dining in the lions' den.  And the lingering feeling persists, that all of these initiatives may be undertaken for the spurious goal of taking  our minds off the corruption and amorality that has  become the hallmark of this government at home.  5 YEARS AGO  The local Department of Highways has apparently  acted promptly to re-open the historic Redrooffs Trail in  the Halfmoon Bay area, after the trail was blocked off in  four places recently between Redrooffs Road and the  post office at Halfmoon Bay.  Redrooffs Trail is the oldest right-of-way in the Halfmoon Bay area, used as far back as 1887 when Clara  Lyell became post mistress of Halfmoon Bay and opened the post office from her log cabin on Redrooffs Trail.  From 1909 onwards the trail was well used, first as  the only link between Redrooffs Resort, which opened  that year, and Halfmoon Bay, and later by children attending classes at one of the cabins on the trail.  10 YEARS AGO  The Sechelt Cquncil, at its regular meeting held on  Wednesday, February 2, expressed the hope that the  public co-operation, which has been enjoyed recently  regarding the problem of parking space on Cowrie  Street will continue. The council was unanimous in its  hope that costly by-laws and their subsequent enforcement will not be necessary.  20 YEARS AGO  The failure of the naval destroyer escort Yukon to turn  up any trace of the tug Gulf Master off Trail Island is  disappointing, Cecil Cosulich, president of Riv-Tow  Marine Ltd., owners of the lost craft, declared in an interview with the Coast News.  Mr. Cosulich felt there were two broad possibilities  for the sinking, one that she went down for some unknown reason in the middle of the bay or, more likely,  the Gulf Master might have piled up on an inshore rock  and slid off into deep water.  30 YEARS AGO  Crown Assets Corporation has accepted the offer of  the village commission for the purchase of an International 1939 five-ton truck, plus a dishwashing machine,  it was reported at Tuesday night's Village Commission  meeting. The fire truck will cost $500 and the dishwashing machine $10. The deal was that the dishwashing machine had to be included owing to the low  price set on the sale of the truck. Delivery of the truck  will be made on a date settled.  40 YEARS AGO  Five year old Danny Mosier of Halfmoon Bay was saved from drowning Sunday by Mr, Sands, after the  youngster plunged into seven feet of water from the footbridge over the creek. He was riding his wagon over the  bridge at the time.  The Sunshine  �� mm mi  Publisher & Managing Editor  John Burnside  Co-Publisher  M.M.

The mill's average Kraft Pulp output per day is  between 600 and 700 tonnes. There are approximately 415 men and  women who work in, and are a part of, this pulp making operation.  Some of the departments in the operation are: Steam and  Recovery, which provides power to drive the pumps and machinery  within the mill; the Chip Unloading Group, which convey and store  the wood chips as a part of their role in the system; the Digesters,  where the wood chips are pressure cooked; Kiln and Causticizing  Maryanne's viewpoint  area, they provide a caustic liquid to aid in the cooking process;  Washers Screens and Bleach Plant, which clean and bleach the  cooked wood chips, which is now pulp; Machine Room, where the  pulp is pressed and dried into a sheet, then cut and wrapped into  bales; Shipping, which is responsible for the storage and subsequent loading of the bales into Deep Sea Ships bound for foreign  markets; Maintenance, which keeps the machinery oiled and runn-  ing; and Accounting, which makes sure that the pay role gets out  every two weeks. ���Clark Kent photo  Surely times change  by Maryanne West  "You can't go far wrong if  you believe that what you are  doing is right," said Premier  Vander Zakn in an effort to  justify his off-the-cuff remarks  about sex education which set  off such a furore a couple of  weeks ago. Leaving aside the  subject, which has been more  than well covered, the foregoing  philosophy has to be even more  naive and open to all manner of  abuse.  One doesn't have to look far  to see all sorts of horrors which  _. .have, been perpetrated by .people  who had the best of intentions  at the time and were convinced  that they were right. No doubt  all the tyrants in history sincerely thought they were doing the  right thing, for the good of  humanity.  It wasn't only the temporal  powers and politicians either.  Far too often it has been a God  given right which has been invoked by leaders of religious  faiths, and Christians haven't  been exempt from such intolerances.  Voltaire was moved to comment: "The man who says to  me, believe as I do or God will  dame you," will presently say,  "believe as I do or I shall  assasinate you."  Truth is such an elusive quality. What we may think of as  'right' at any given time is subject to so many variables, including our human frailty. It is  so easy to rationalize what we  want or what is expedient into  what is right.  The quest for truth reminds  me of one of Alice's adventures  Coast Lines  Through the Looking Glass, in  which she finds herself in a little  country store and the article she  wants to look at keeps eluding  her grasp, moving from shelf to  shelf and eventually disappearing through the ceiling.  Quite apart from the fact that  we, the electorate are obviously  to blame for accepting Mr.  Vander Zalm's promise that  style means substance, he cannot in all honesty claim that he  was elected to do just what he  thinks to be right. Not in 1987  surely!  In the late 19th century it was  *lhe custom' fof the man of the  ' family to run things the way he  thought right and wife,  children, assorted dependent  relatives and servants all toed  the line. But that was 100 years  ago, and surely times have  changed!  Do I think politicians should  not have strong personal  beliefs? Of course not. We all  need to have a sense of values  which tells us what's right and  what's wrong. I'm glad the  premier believes in chastity and  is willing to stand up for what  he thinks is right.  However, I don't think we  elect politicians at any level of  government to pursue their own  interests, but to be the servants  of the people; not only the people who elected them and who  can be expected to share the  same values, but of the whole  community. We expect them to  make sure they have access to  all the relevant information on  any given issue, and to study ft  carefully on its merits as far as  possible without personal bias,  so that their decisions will be of  benefit to the majority and will  take into account the long run  rather than just immediate  benefits.  Anyone who believes that  what he. or she thinks is right  needs no further examination,  needs to be watched carefully.  When You Are Old  When you are old and grey and full of sleep,  And nodding by the fire, take down this book,  And slowly read, and dream of the soft look  Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;  How many loved your moments of glad grace,  And loved your beauty with love false or true,  But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,  And loved the sorrows of your changing face;  And bending down beside the glowing bars,  Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled  And paced upon the mountains overhead  And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.  William Butler Yeats  French Fires and other delicacies  by Nancy MacLarty  I guess proof readers are a  dying breed. It's all done by  computers now and everyone  knows they don't make  mistakes. Any fan of the electronic age willtell you that a  computer is as good as the  human that programs it. If  there's an error, then it's human  error.  Okay, then who was the  human that messed up my first  'Coast Lines' column in,  February 2's Coast News? Column two should have been column three, and Tom Wilkinson  swears by yeast, not "Tom  Wildinson swears by yearst".  What is yearst? At any rate, it  did get the old grey matter  working, trying to figure out  just how to read the piece. I  guess that's what's meant by  'thoughtful journalism'.  But, 'typos' can be fun. A  few weeks ago I went into Shop  Easy in search of 'Superman  French Fires'. These had been  advertised in large red letters as  being a weekly special in that  store's ad in the Press. Never  having had a 'French Fire', and  thinking them to be some sort  of local gourmet fare, I was  naturally anxious to try some.  But, alas, when I asked, they  turned out to be plain old  'French fries', and the frozen  kind at that. Just another  'typo'.  Imagine the upset there  would be if a local headline announced 'Water Rats Rising'!  Where are they rising to?  Should we worry about the  possible outbreak of disease? Is  there a chance of plague? What  is the Health Department doing? Should we call in the Pied  Piper of Hamelin? All this  because of the lack of an e. It's  one thing to pay more for  water, another to have rodents  attacking our homes!  And think of the vast difference in meaning between an  'eon' and 'one'. Although in the  world of 'typos', its only the  juxtaposition of one letter.  Meanings differ too, even  without 'typos'. An advertisement may announce that a local  store has 'Ladies' Under-'  garments Half Off!'. Now, to  some of us, that may suggest a  50 per cent savings, to others,  pornography in downtown  Sechelt or Gibsons.  And that's just the written  word. How about how we hear  things? Depending on what part  of the country you come from,  'high water' may either mean  the middle of a man's ankle or  the usual point that high tides  stop.  Aquaculture to some may  mean hydroponic gardening,  but to others it's the farming of  fish.  To a biologist, culture may  mean the growth of bacteria, to  others the Vancouver Symphony and even others may  think of ethnic things.  Your age too, has a lot to do  with meanings. You'd be hard  pressed to find anyone these  days who would think of  describing a happy youth as a  'gay young thing'. And you can  tell my age by the fact that I  know my father's spats were articles   of   clothing   and   not  arguments with my mother. ;  To younger people, 'gross'  means 'yukky', to older folks^it  still means 12 dozen. For kids in  school a metre is 39.37 inches,  for older people with culture it's  a rythmic piece of verse, for still  others it's the machine you put  your money in when you parjc  your car which may be a Stanza  and that brings us back to verse.  So the world of communication is a confusing one and it's  made even more so by  typographical errors. Let's hope  that this column gets arranged  properly and proof read by a  human being, preferably of the  same age and cultural  background as mine, so that  even less room will be left for  error.  I also wish to apologize to all  the store owners who have had  a run on yearst for use as a septic tank conditioner. However,  if anything good has come from  all this, it's the fact that I found  something to write about in this  busy week and for that I thank  the Coast News, 'typos' and all.  And that's 'fore shore'. Coast News, February 9,1987  Editor:  I' I am writing you regarding an  issue which I have recently come  across in an article in the Pacific  Tribune. Our government, on  ���January 13, released a white  paper, Forest Management  ���Review, outlining some 56  recommendations for future  Ibrest management in this province.  �� Issue 6 of this paper recommends the sale of crown forest  Ebid to the private sector. 1 find  Jfjhis proposal most alarming.  ����� The recommendation states  ijhat the land sold will be small  isolated pieces. In an attempt to  obtain a definition of "small  isolated pieces of timber land" I  visited our local Ministry of  Forests. The local district forest  manager was unable to give me  a figure.  L I asked him, well is it five to  JO per cent, 50 per cent or 90 per  cent in small parcels? He was  unable to give me a figure. 1  then invited him to define a  small parcel. He declined.  The forward of this paper invites comments on the recommendations it contains by  February 20, 1987. It further  States that all submissions will  be given full consideration  before the recommendations are  implemented.  I submit to you and your  readers. How many citizens of  B.C. are aware that their land,  the land of the people of this  province, is about to be  wholesaled to the highest bidder  in undetermined and as yet  undefined quantities? Do your  readers know that this land is  part of their heritage? When it  is sold that will be the end of  public access.  What of the cultural and  economic resources of the land?  Who or what gave the Minister  of Forests the right to sell all  resources attached to the land?  Does this government have the  right to sell our land without a  public forum or investigation  on five weeks notice?  In whose best interests is this  recommendation? Certainly not  in the best interests of the small  forest operator. He can't afford  to buy the land let alone wait 80  -to 100 years for it to renew its  forest resources. This land  ivould fall into the hands of  large multi-national conglomerates and would be largely  under foreign ownership.  Is that in the best interests of  all British Columbians? We  have all seen the waste left  behind by forest companies on  land that was controlled by the  government, what do you think  it would be like if privatized?  Would foreign owners have a  vested interest in long term  management or short term profits that left behind a  wasteland?  All British Columbians had  better think about this before  February 20, that's just 15 days  from when I write this letter, or  they will be sorry in the future.  B.C.'s   record   in   forest  management has been a bad one  when compared to other forest  product economies. This tops  all blunders of the past. There is  somewhere between 15 and 50  years supply of soft wood left in  B.C., largely due to bad  management in the past. It's my  impression that the Socreds are  getting out of the responsibility  for this poor performance  record while they can.  I for one, enjoy the use of  crown forest land for hiking,  fishing and skiing, just to name  a few. I receive comfort in  knowing that unlike the US,  Europe and other countries, the  people of Canada still own a  large chunk of the land that surrounds them.

Mayor and Council  Town of Gibsons  Dear Council members:  The purpose of this letter is to  inform you one last time that  you are barking up the wrong  tree, (Petro-Canada, Shell  Canada, ESSO Canada,' Chevron Canada, etc., etc.).  I will explain once again.  Bulk regular leaded gas from  Hopkins Landing costs 29 cents  per litre, and ESSO 2000  unleaded gas costs 31.1 cents.  These prices are, of course, subject to provincial and federal tax  notations:  6.39 cents per litre provincial  tax notations, 4.5 cents per litre  federal tax notations.  Now, let us say that I order  4700 litres of regular leaded gas  at 29 cents per litre at a cost of  $1363. In addition, 1 order 2400  litres of ESSO 2000 unleaded  gas at 31.1 cents per litre costing  $746.40.  The provincial and federal  tax notations on 7100 litres of  gasoline (regular, leaded and  unleaded combined) are as  follows: provincial $453.69,  federal $319.50. Therefore, I  pay a grand total of $2882.59  cents' for 7100 litres of ESSO  Canada's liquid gold.  The main reason that the  Sunshine Coast has high gas  prices is the fact that in the late  1970's a deal was reached between the federal and provincial  governments in reference to the  Vancouver transit system. The  federal government allowed the  Bill Bennett regime to add on a  transit tax covering the entire  Sunshine Coast. This transit tax  goes into the pockets of the  The Gibsons  Electors' Association  ANNUAL MEETING  7:30 p.m.  12 February, 1987  Marine Room, Gibsons (tower floor of Public Library)  Speakers will address the meeting  on topics of current interest  An Announcement From  The Ford Motor Company  RETROACTIVE WARRANTY  ON  ALL 1987 VEHICLES SOLD  All 1987 passenger cars  and light trucks will  now carry a:  6 YEAR or 100,000 km  POWERTRAIN  WARRANTY  and  6 YEARS or 160,000 km  ON CORROSION  PERFORMANCE  the government,  oil companies  B.C.

Transit  Chairman of the Board.  Walter Loitz  Charge  the industry  Editor's note: a copy of the  following letter was received for  publication.  Dear Mr. Wilson:  Re: Funding for environmental  impact study of aquaculture on  Sechelt Inlet.  In your letter of January 14  you indicated that the district is  attempting to secure senior  government funding for a comprehensive foreshore study of  the Inlet that would include the  environmental impact of aquaculture.  As you may be aware, the  Department of the Environment, through the Waste  Management Branch, has the  .legislative mandate, to require  applicants for pollution control  permits to conduct comprehensive environmental impact  studies. The cost of such studies  would quite properly be the  responsibility of the applicant.  Aquaculture operations are required to obtain pollution control permits.  Any funding by government  agencies of the environmental  impact of aquaculture on the  Inlet or elsewhere would be a  direct subsidy to the industry  unless a mechanism was put in  place to recover the costs from  the industry.  Until now it appears that the  Department of the Environment  through the Waste Management  Branch has opted not to require  aquaculture applicants to provide comprehensive environmental impact studies.  However, the Gillespie Commission identified the need for  increased support for environmental studies.  Under these circumstances it  may be timely to suggest that  the portion of the proposed  Thanks  Editor:  On behalf of our 1986  membership of 834, I wish to  convey our thanks for the  publicity afforded our organization by the inclusion of our  weekly column in your publication throughout 1986.

The costs of monitoring  could also be funded by increases in the costs of foreshore  leases or on a pro rated cost  recovery basis in the form of a  tax on the industry.

The Community Association  has sponsored the Wilson Greek  Family Centre for many years.  The executive now feels they  can no longer do this.  The job now is to ask you if  we should maintain sponsorship  and if not, shall we continue until the end of June so those  children being taught on the  grounds can finish their school  year.  Afterwards, Barry Willough-  by will give slides and a talk on  gardening and container planting.  VOLUNTEERS WANTED  The Heart Fund person to  call if you wish to volunteer for  collections   is   Marie   Steel,  Roberts Creek  Rock dumping necessary  by Jeanic Parker, 885-2163  Many people have been getting agitated about the rocks being dumped at the mouth of the  Creek, especially because they  prevent boat launching in the  area. But they're being placed  there at the request of Jack  Warn, the owner of the property, with the approval of the  Fisheries Department.  The rock is intended to help  prevent further erosion of the  property. The creek has changed course considerably in the  last few years and the recent  storms did a lot of damage, to  the point of nearly washing  away the power pole.  The launching of boats down  there has contributed to the erosion and is contrary to the  Roberts Creek Settlement Plan  anyway. There is provision in  the plan for another public boat  ramp but that has not yet been  established.  VALENTINE'S DANCE  The Hall Committee is sponsoring a dance at the Community Hall this Saturday, February  14, featuring the "BelAirs",  ah excellent blues band from  Vancouver. Tickets are $7 and  available at Seaview Market.  Besides being an opportunity  for a good time, the event is  necessary financially. Physically, the hall is in the best shape its  been in for years, with new  flooring, paint, lights, and rubber footings for all the tables  and chairs. But there's no  money left after all the improvements.  So come out and support the  committee that's working so  hard to preserve and maintain  the old hall and treat yourself to  a good night of boogeying.  Doors open at 8:30 pm. No  minors.  LEGION MUSIC  The Roberts Creek Legion is  also holding a Valentine's  Dance this Saturday. The Music  Man has a wide selection of  records so there's something for  every taste. Slim and the  Pickups will be at the Little  Legion on February 21.  Members and guests welcome.

Everybody possibly affected  should attend the meeting to  check out the situation. Other  issues will also be covered and it  should be noted that the  association's annual meeting is  coming up in March. Many of  the old executive will be retiring  and new faces are required to  replace these hard-working and  caring people.  The community association  meeting is at the Roberts Creek  Community Hall on Wednesday, February 18 at 8 pm.  Everybody is welcome.  GARAGE SALE  The Ladies Auxiliary to the  Roberts Creek Legion will be  holding a garage sale in May.  They would appreciate any  donations of items other than  clothes and will pick them up  now or any time you're cleaning  out closets. Phone Pam Lumsden at 885-3522.  HEART CANVASSERS  The B.C. Heart Foundation  begins its campaign for funds  onv February l4i. The slog||  "We've touched tne heart of so*  meone you know" is so very appropriate and it's a worthwhile  and vital organization.  Volunteers are needed to canvass the community. It usually  involves a small area close to  home and requires only a couple  of hours. It's a nice way to see  the neighbourhood and the people in it. So, if you can, phone  Sandy McBride at 885-5717 to  volunteer.  DANCE SUCCESS  Diana Zornes asked me to  pass along a big thanks and a  pat on the back to all the kids  who made the high school  dance at the Community Hall  such a success. The dance was  nearly a month ago but with all  the bad public relations kids in  the community are getting, they  deserve mention for doing  something good.  The dance was put on by the  Elphinstone senior class to raise  money for their graduation.  Jason Griffiths and Shannon  Bulmer were the chief organizers but all the kids deserve  credit for helping. The dance  went off without a hitch, right  down to the clean up bright and  early the next morning.

The federal government has  assigned a project officer to  commence implementation of  the Canada Futures program on  the Sunshine Coast. Dennis  Cherenko was appointed to the  position on February 5, and will  be arriving in the area within the  next few weeks.  i Cherenko's first task will be  to canvass the area^ meeting  with groups and individuals in  order to compile a list of people  recommended to sit on the com-  jnittee which will administer the  program.  > This committee will be composed of representatives from  local   interest   groups   and  hiunicipal   authorities.   Its  responsibilities   will   include  assessing   the   community's  economic needs; developing a  five year strategy for recovery;  and accessing other sources of  public and private financing,  i  Through the program, the  "committee will be eligible to  receive a maximum of $200,000  over a two year period.  ..The appointmeAt.of.the pro-,  ject officer was discussed at last  week's meeting of the Economic  ^Development    Committee  (EDC)   and  members   agreed  that it would be helpful to start  putting together a list of people  that they would recommend.  . Regional board chairman Jim  Gurney expressed concern that  "it doesn't develop into a dog  fight over who's going to sit on  the committee."  It   was   agreed   that   EDC  Chairman Maurice Egan and  Barrie Wilbee from the Sunshine Coast Employment Development Society would begin  to collect names of appropriate  people.  Tuberculosis  still concern  The first case of tuberculosis  on the Sunshine Coast in 1987  was confirmed last week.  Medical Health Officer Jim  Lugsdin told the Coast News in  an interview last week that there  were three confirmed cases in  this area in 1986.  TB is still considered one of  the major communicable diseases and once a case is confirmed it becomes top priority  at the Health Unit, while the patient's contacts are tracked  down and tested.  Prompt action and modern  medicine usually make it unnec-  cessary for a person suffering  from active TB to go into a  sanitarium, although that alternative is available if the patient  doesn't respond to medication.  The usual treatment consists  of rest and taking a prescribed  drug for six months, although  the patient is usually not contagious after the first couple of  weeks.  The B.C. Centre for Disease  Control considers tuberculosis  to be a major public health problem and monitors all confirmed cases even after they have  completed treatment.  Building starts  Footings and foundations are  poured, the joists for the floor  are in and now the walls are going up on the new Jack and Jill  Preschool on Harmony Lane.

This would  enable Mr. Martinez to  establish a neighbourhood pub,  to compliment his long standing  reputation for serving fine  foods.  Mr. Martinez has now met  quirement for a 'pre-clearance',  'D' Class liquor licence. The  pre-clearance was issued, in  writing, from the Liquor Control and Licencing Branch on  January 30, 1987.  In April of 1985, Mr. Martinez applied for re-zoning  through the SCRD, who at that  time had jurisdiction of the  area. The application went  through first and second  reading, and, finally to a public  hearing in February of 1986.  At that time, the SCRD required Mr. Martinez to conduct  a survey, within a half mile  radius of the Casa Martinez, to  show that a majority of the  residents, 19 and over, would be  in favour of having a  neighbourhood pub at that  location. The survey showed  that at least 70 per cent of the  residents were in favour.  The survey, first and second  ff%rw$&?  reading, and public hearing are  still in good standing and was  carried over to the Municipality  of Sechelt when they assumed  jurisdiction of the area in July  of 1986.  Mr. Martinez says, "I feel  that a neighbourhood pub could  only benefit the community,  and that hopefully the process  of re-zoning will not be too time  consuming or difficult, as this  presents a discouragement to  businessmen who are trying to  survive."

Art Holmes  Superintendent of Schools  Economic Development  :(MSsWiK^9S^MlMO:  m^0^&nm iiw  The Economic Development  Committee (EDC), under the  new Chairmanship of Maurice  Egan, is speeding ahead with  several projects designed to improve and expand the economic  base of the Sunshine Coast. At  last Friday's meeting, the committee voted to provide funding  for two new programs and  discussed a wide variety of local  resources which could be  marketed.  The first program to receive  financial support was a Small  Business Centre which will be  run in conjuction with, and probably located in, Capilano College in Sechelt. The centre will  hire a counsellor who will identify business opportunities and  match them with entrepreneurs,  guide and assist people through  the formation of new businesses  and help established businesses  to identify and solve problems.  The Small Business Centre  will be run by a society. This  allow it to access funding from  various government programs.  Whether this will be ah existing  society or one which is  established solely for this purpose has not yet been decided.  However, the EDC has set aside  $15,000 to help establish the  centre and it is hoped that  Capilano College will provide  facilities and related courses and  seminars for small businesses.  The EDC will be recommending that whoever is hired for  the counsellor position has a  strong background in marketing. Committee members  agreed that there is a vast potential for business opportunities  on the Sunshine Coast, but  most local people lack knowledge of how to market their  ideas and their products.  Local artists and craftspeople, were identified as a valuable  resource whose diverse products  and performances require improved marketing strategies.  The promotion of this area as  a retirement community was  discussed. Gibsons Alderman  Bob Maxwell pointed out that  many people who come here to  retire, get frustrated with the  lack of transportation on the  Coast itself, and the restricted  ferry sailings to get onto the  lower mainland, and end up  leaving after a few years.

It's nice to see  Ruby Warne back home again,  and it will be good news when  we hear that Queenie Burrows  and Carrie Surtees are well  again and back home where  they belong, in Halfmoon Bay.  Good wishes go out from us all  to these fine ladies.  AUXILIARY LOSS  .,.St, Mary's .Hospital Thrift  Shop will be closing this Thursday, February 12 at 1 pm instead of the usual 3 pm. This is  in order that the volunteers who  work there on Thursdays will be  able to attend a memorial service at the Sechelt Legion hall at  1:30, for one of their friends  who has been part of the Thursday team for several years, Rae  Fitz-Gerald.  Rae had been an auxiliary  volunteer with the Sechelt  Branch of St. Mary's for many  years and was known as a hard  working dedicated lady who will  be missed by her family and  many friends.  SCHOOL NEWS  Parents, teachers and kids  alike are excited at the prospect  of the brand new school about  to be built in Halfmoon Bay.  Plans are underway at present.  In the meantime, the children  are enjoying Friday afternoons  skating at the arena from 1:15  to 2:15.  If anyone out there happens  to have some childrens' skates  which are no longer being used,  I know that they would be  apreciated if you pass them  along to the school.  FERRY RATES  I hope that our readers are  making themselves aware of the  new ferry rates due to start  February 15. It will be rough for  commuters to have to dish out  $307.50 for a book of 20 tickets  as the books of five are being  done away with.  RABBIE BURNS NIGHT  Would just like the members  of the Sechelt Legion Pipe Band  and the auxiliary ladies to know  that Burns night was much appreciated by all of us who attended. Great dinner, great  music, great night. Thanks!  VALENTINE'S DAY  One last reminder of the  Valentine's night at Welcome  Beach Hall this coming Saturday, February 14, starting at 9  pm.

They learn to work together as a  ; unit. They are the Sunshine  Coast Seaforth Army Cadet  Corps No. 2963.  The emphasis of their pro-  ! gram is bush craft and search  ; and rescue.  Along with this  * there's first aid, maps and compass, target practice with the .22  calibre  rifle,   and   drill.   The  cadets have their own pipes and  drums ably tutored by Alex  "Ian" Buchanan, pipe major of  the Sechelt Legion Branch 140  band.  Young folk can begin cadet  training at age 13 and continue  to 19. Qualifying in the exams  the first year earns a green star;  , and so on, year by year through  qualifications for red, silver,  'and gold stars.  ! The silver star program  ; reviews the work of the first two  , and provides instruction in how  ) to instruct. And the training in  ; the techniques of instructing  ; that the armed forces provides  ;: could, in my opinion, be useful-  ' ly employed in teacher training  colleges; for example, how to  ;   stand before a group, speak  ��� clearly and effectively, avoid the  ;..use of pet words like "okay  ��� now", and employ the  '���   chalkboard effectively.  i The gold star leads to instruc-  ; .ting at summer camp, and pass-  : ���, ing it there merits a badge of  ; l\wreath design.  \\    The Sunshine Coast Army  ;: Cadets now have the old Davis  ��� I Bay School building under lease  :. and have spent one of their  ���., monthly   weekend   exercises  ��� painting and altering as a start  \ -in renovating the building to  'suit their needs. They, will be  proud to welcome a visit at their  new headquarters from representatives   of   the   Seaforth  ���Highlanders  of  Canada,   the  ;  militia regiment in Vancouver  '  with which they are associated.  Officer   instructors   of  our  cadet corps are Captain Bob  ', Summerfield, commanding of-  . ficer; Lieutenant Shirley Summerfield, adjutant. Instructors  are Second-Lieutenants Duane  -and Paulette Thorsteinson, and  ; Officer cadet Tammy Thorsteinson.  Among the civilian instructors are David Hartman and  Alex "Ian" Buchanan. And  there's the very supportive  parents' auxiliary. Captain Ron  Biggs, CD, is the liaison officer  both between the cadet corps  and its sponsor, Branch 140,  \ Royal Canadian Legion, and  February is  Heart Month.  the Seaforths.  In the past year our corps of  cadets placed first in their class  in all B.C. in training.  Next week the Corps'  Biathlon team will compete in  Vernon with other teams that  have already qualified for this  Pacific Region event. Our team  qualified by winning bronze in  Port Alberni last January 17 in  this event comprised of crosscountry skiing and target  shooting. It is, by the way, their  first time to compete in this trial  of stamina and skill.  Former cadets have entered  the armed forces after completing their training here on the  coast.  David Foxall of Selma Park  is a member of the crew of  HMCS Yukon and is now on  maneuvers between San Diego  and Hawaii. Before that, his  ship was part of an international sail oast to celebrate  Australia's 75th anniversary  with Prince Philip taking the  salute.  David, who would like to  qualify sometime in the future  as a naval officer, finds life in  the navy very satisfying and  challenging. And fun, like his  initiation to King Neptune's  Court on crossing the equator  for the first time.  Sergio Tomasi, who, like  David, is a Chatelech grad, has  been in the Royal Canadian Infantry Regiment for a year now.  Because he qualified as a  paratrooper in his later cadet  training, he is entitled to wear  the wings insignia in the regular  forces.  Sergio is now stationed in  London, Ontario. His basic and  advanced training were done at  Cornwallis and Petawawa.  Tony Brooks, now Second-  Lieutenant Brooks, of Sechelt  and an Elphinstone grad,  graduated from Royal Roads  last year with a degree in  Physics and Computer Science.  Tony expects to be posted in  Lahr, Germany, for the next  three years in the corps of electrical and mechanical engineers.

The club members were told  about the requirements of the  Firearms Act where indoor and  outdoor ranges are concerned.  To make their outdoor range  comply with the safety measures  of the act, the conservation officer, Jamie Stephens, pointed  out the need for adequate fencing of the backing and  with signs, adequate backing  and cover for the target area,  and the general grade of the  range property itself.  There is so much to be done  to bring the outdoor range to  the required standard but the  club will not be able to accomplish this in the foreseeable  future.  The indoor range, on the  other hand, that accommodates  the junior .22 program and the  handgun shooters, is within the  scope of the club to upgrade to  satisfactory standard. Indoor  ranges require RCMP approval.  Meanwhile no shooting can  be permitted at the outdoor  range.

Volunteers are needed to help  with hairdressing, Tuesday and  Thursday, to feed extended care  patients and to help with their  activity programs during the  week.  In the Gibsons area, there is  need for a tuck shop attendant,  or perhaps you would consider  sharing your morning exercise  regime with the residents of a  care home at 9:30 am.  Visitors for shut-ins are  always welcome. A smile, a  game of cards, a quiet visit are  greatly appreciated and needed.  This can be done whenever it is  convenient.

This is 1987  and membership dues of $5 per  year are due and payable  January 1, 1987. Kay McKenzie  attends most activities and if not  contacted in person, can be  reached at 885-3184. She will  also supply you with a 1987 activity sheet along with your  membership card.  Too often we hear the  remark, "I'm not 65 yet." Section 2a of our Constitution  reads, "Any person, regardless  of age may become a member  of the branch on acceptance of  application and payment of  membership dues. Thereafter  the dues will be payable in  January." So come on you  youngsters, we need your support!  So far this year we have 258  paid up members and we're  heading for 1000 or more. Last  year we were the largest branch  of our provincial body and we  want to stay that way.  DONATIONS  By this time next year we will  (repeat will) be in our new hall.  "Our New Building Fund" is  growing slowly by kind donations of money and raffle items  from our members. Also we  gratefully acknowledge a donation of $500 from the Sechelt  Legion Branch 140, towards our  new building.   FEDERAL AFFILIATE  In a recent column I mentioned the service rendered by the  National Pensioners and Senior  Citizen's Federation on our  behalf in Ottawa. These "watchdogs" are doing a tremendous service to each and every  one of our seniors. It would  seem only reasonable to repay  them in part with your support  of a $2 annual membership.  It is our understanding that  yet another organization, One  Voice, is intending to disrupt  and split a group that are now  doing an excellent job for us  already. Let's get behind the  National Pensioners and prevent this happening. Your  membership will help.  ACTIVITIES  All activities are GO in the  hall. It is encouraging to see  new  faces  showing up,  par  ticularly for carpet bowling,  Whist, Cribbage and Aggravation. The Monday and Wednesday exercise sessions are being  more heavily utilized.

Relatives and close  family friends attended and surprised Jean, who thought she  was going to a wedding shower.  Instead, it was a celebration  on Jeanie's retirement. Jack  and Jean Mercer took over  Stones Marina in 1968 (now  known as the Buccaneer Marina  in Secret Cove), and worked  together building up the  business along with son John.  Gradually other family  members have joined the  business and now Jean figures it  is time for her to bow out, but  not to be so far away that she  can't be called in from time to  time.

Or, forgot where you just  parked your car? Then, you were in a hypnotic  trance.  Have you ever thought the door bell or phone  rang, but it didn't? Have you ever looked for  something that was 'staring you in the face',  but you didn't see it? Ever driven your car for  miles and wondered how you got there? These  are a few examples of common everyday hypnotic trances everyone experiences. You have  already been hypnotized thousands of times.  Have you ever told yourself to awaken at a set  time in the morning and you did? Have you  ever said "I'll hide this where NO ONE can find  it" and you couldn't find it yourself? Have you  ever said "I can't lose weight or I can't quit  smoking." Then you have given suggestion to  yourself.  Have you ever forgotten a name that was on  the 'tip of your tongue'? Where did the name  go? In the 'back' of your mind, your subconscious or inner mind. You can learn to make  your subconscious work with and for you instead of against you.  Romane's main concern is to have hypnosis  accessible to everyone. There are other hypnotists who charge $90. to $195. for comparable services. His human-ness shows  through when he says: "this ancient art should  be shared With everyone and used for the good  of humankind and the community."  Romane's studies of the mind began over 25  years ago. The key to Romane's success in  helping others lies in the fact Romane is "a man  of action."  Although the sessions are helpful and fun, this  is NOT stage hypnosis. Therapeutic hypnosis  is nine times as powerful and helps you to  unlock the powers of your own mind.  Romane is not scheduled to tour your area  again for some time.   If you want help to lose  weight or quit smoking,  be sure to come!  Registration   begins   20  minutes   before   the  session.

As a member of  the B.C. Coalition of Alternatives to Pesticides, they have  been asked to be involved in a  consultative workshop sponsored by Environment Canada  on proposed amendments to the  Environmental Protection Act.  The meeting, to be held in  Vancouver, is not open to the  public. However, individuals  who wish to make submissions  can do so later in the month. A  public meeting will be held at  the Sandman Inn on February  28.  Closer to home, SCEPP has  invited a spokesman from CIP  Incorporated to discuss their  recently advertised pesticide use  permit. The group hopes to advise CIP on the merits of  pesticide-free methods of controlling 'weeds'.  Their representative will be  coming to the Sunshine Coast  on February 18 and the meeting  will be held at the regional  district office at 1 pm.  The public is welcome, but  anyone who can't attend the  meeting can relay their concerns  to Carol Rubin at 885-3618 or  Marlene Stephens at 885-7745.  ���  Storms  sewer  Last month's storm that  damaged the Gibsons Seawaik  that runs between the wharf and  Armour's Beach has threatened  the sewer collection main which  runs underneath, according to a  press release from the Town of  Gibsons.  The press release states:*'Our  Seawaik has been damaged by  recent storms to the extent that  it has now reached the point  where the sewer collection main  must be protected. While it is  not exposed in some areas, the  high tides and waves have  undermined the rip-rap which  was put in place to protect the  line. Council has deemed this to  be an emergency situation and  immediate repairs will be undertaken."  In an interview with the  Coast News, Town Administrator, Lorraine Goddard  stated that Fiedler Brothers  Contracting of Gibsons has  been contracted to begin repairs  which will begin as soon as riprap material is available.  Though the exact costs of  repairs cannot be known until  work is completed, they could  reach as high as $30,000.  Efforts are underway to seek  financial assistance from the  provincial government. Goddard said that Provincial  Emergency funds may be  available through the Ministry  of the Environment, which is  sending a representative to inspect the damage.  If it is determined that a  hazard to the environment exists from the possibility of  pollution should the sewer col-  damage  system  lection main break, funding  assistance for the preventive  repairs may be authorized.  These repairs will also restore  most of the Seawaik.  Serious errosion and tonnes  of debris were piled up during  last month's storm which coincided with this year's unusually  high tides. Though the high  tides are now receeding, the  danger still exists.  "One more bad storm would  be all it would take to create  serious damage," said Goddard.  Home  Support  Society  The newly incorporated Sunshine Coast Home Support  Society held its first meeting  January 28. The officers are:  J.W. Kirkland, President;  Eloise Yaxley, Secretary; R.C.  Mason, Treasurer. This is a  non-profit society. The prime  objective is to provide services  which will help individuals and  families to live to the optimum  level of independence in their  own surroundings.  The services offered are  Home Support (formerly  Homemakers), Meals on  Wheels, and Adult Day Care.  These services have been on the  Sunshine Coast for a number of  years and were part of the Sunshine Coast Community Services Society until January 31.  Variety Helps Kids!

Coast News, February 9, 1987  by Peter Trower  Master Puppeteer explains the art and special effects of puppeter-  ing to West Sechelt Elementary School students.     ��� Clark Kent photo  Getting to Sointula from the  mainland by car, requires that  you leave rather early in the  morning. It is still quite dark  when Yvonne and 1 set out  along cold deserted streets to  catch the 7 am Nanaimo ferry.  We make one stop in West Vancouver to pick up writer/fisherman Carl Nelson. Carl, an old  friend of mine from the hippie  years, is a Sointulan native who  has been spending some time in  the city. He belongs to the  writers' group, owns a house in  the village and has kindly offered to put us up. We make the  ferry in good time, cross the  windy strait and start the long  haul up-island.  The country, as far as Campbell River, is familiar to us all.  Neither Yvonne nor myself have  driven beyond this point before,  however. We plunge into the  new territory with interest. The  highway is excellent and the  scenery, spectacular but there  Puppets delight students  Master Puppeteer Luman  Coad and artist Arlyn Coad, of  Coad Canada Puppets, gave  performances of O'Mother a  Pirate in four of our elementary  schools this week; Madeira  Park, Davis Bay, Langdale and  West Sechelt.  O'Mother a Pirate is truly a  delightful and entertaining play,  which for 40 minutes, thrilled  our young elementary students.  The story is about a woman  who is bored with her housewife  duties and in her daydreams,  becomes an adventurous pirate.  Directly following the play, Mr.  Coad demonstrates and explains to the students how a  puppet show is put together and  performed.  Luman Coad has been performing professionally for 26  years and although he and his  wife primarily play to B.C.  schools, they have given performances worldwide - the  Smithsonian Institute in  Washington DC, and throughout the US, Japan, Australia,  Brazil, England and most of  Europe.  Arlyn Coad is an artist in her  own right. She creates, designs  and constructs Classic Dolls. A  first edition of one of her dolls  can take up to six weeks to  design, sculpt and costume.  Some of her creations are on exhibit in the Kansas City  Miniature Museum, which is  known to house the most comprehensive collection of scaled  miniatures in the world.  Local students wait in anticipation for Coad Canada  Puppets' next visit to the Sunshine Coast.  At the Arts Centre  Exhibit open to everyone  There is an exhibition running from February 18 to March  at the Arts Centre in Sechelt and  you can be in it! Anyone who  lives on the Sunshine Coast is  eligible. If you feel the creative  spark in your veins, you'll want  to show what you've done or  can do.

Dormant   steel  towers and grapple-yarders, idled by the 1WA strike, dot the  scalped ridges every so often.  Apart from these, there are only  trees,   lakes   and   mountains.  Finally, we arrive at the logging  community   of   Kelsey   Bay,  where   there   is   a   roadside  restaurant, and stop for lunch.  Past Kelsey Bay, there is an  even longer stretch of wilderness. It is getting on toward  mid-afternoon, when we finally  reach   Port   McNeil   and   the  Malcolm Island ferry. McNeil,  another   logging   town,   is  definitely showing the effects of  the strike.   Several  businesses  have closed for the duration and  beer in the local pubs has been  slashed to a bargain basement  75 cents per glass to accomodate  the financially pressed loggers.  The small ferry pulls in at last  and we make the crossing to  Sointula.  Sointula sprawls along the  western shoreline of Malcolm  Island, an eclectic mixture of  the old and the new. Modern  buildings stand side by side with  weathered structures that must  date back to the earliest settlement.  Sointula was a late comer to  the amenities of the 20th century. There was no electricity on  the Island until 1951 and the  first telephones were not installed until 1956. The fishermen of  Sointula were long hampered by  the lack of any natural harbour  but a government breakwater  has solved this problem to some  extent. Farming, once a  mainstay of the islanders has  largely been abandoned, and  deserted, alder-thronged clearings abound in the outlying  areas.  The old ways are fast disappearing. Most of the islanders  now have television, deep  freezes and all the other modern  conveniences. Even the long-  maintained restrictions against  alcohol and religion have been  rescinded. Liquor is available in  the Co-Op store and the island  even boasts a church. The old  time Utopians would be scandalized.

AliWVt&ty'F-  It is not often that we have  the chance to hear an orchestra  playing on the Sunshine Coast.  On February 2, Bruce Dunn  brought his Canada West  Chamber Orchestra to the  Twilight Theatre and presented  us with an up-beat afternoon of  music.  Since they last played here,  two years ago at Gibsons  Elementary School with Lynn  Vernon as soloist, they have acquired more players, now totalling 16. The sound produced is  noticeably richer and the orchestra more versatile.  Bruce Dunn gave the concert  an intimate and informal air  with his witty and informative  comments between works.  I always feel that this orchestra presents and plays music  in a highly accessible and relevant manner, in a way that is  never dry, stuffy or obviously  studied.  The Corelli Concerto Crosso  which opened the program, set  the tone with its rousing first  movement and care fully varied,  repeated notes which occurred  throughout.  The Durante concerto which  followed, was a humourous  work with bird-like chirps surprising the audience every once  in a while. This unfamiliar piece  needs very delicate and careful  playing.  The well known Vivaldi concerto for the violins is a vir-  tuosic piece and was well played  and well paced by players and  conductor, culminating in an  exciting climax which  demonstrated the loud end of  the orchestra's dynamic range.  Stamitz wrote his Symphony  No. 1 for the well known Mannheim orchestra which so inspired Mozart, and it was particularly interesting to hear the  classical style with baroque  trimmings.  The Elgar Serenade for Strings is a delightfully lyrical  work, but 1 felt that the first  movement was played too  ponderously. However, 1 was  quite impressed with the inter  pretation  of the rest  of the  work.  For me, two extra dimensions  were added to the excellent rendition of Britten's simple symphony. First of all it took on a  new meaning when seen to be  played, particularly in the pizzicato section. Secondly, I  noticed a definite extra  resonance that is not evident on  any recordings 1 have heard of  this same work, and I think it  was caused by the stage of the  theatre acting as a sort of  resonating amplifier. The effect  was quite impressive.  The encore was a spritely  French Canadian dance from  Gaspe, written by a contemporary Canadian composer.  It was performed in a manner  which totally belied the fact that  most of the orchestra was playing until 11:30 the previous  night in the VOA's production  of the Marriage of Figaro.  It was altogether a very enjoyable afternoon.  m  the aforementioned older  houses along the beach, a couple of blocks from the ferry slip.  We head there to unwind from  the long drive and ready ourselves for the evening reading.  Carl throws on a huge feast of  salmon. We have drinks and  talk.

Agee's life stemmed from his  [earliest childhood. He was born  'in Knoxville, Tennessee in 1910  ;to oddly mismatched parents.  [His father was an easygoing  | kindly man of backcountry far-  jming stock; his mother, a city  i woman, was a rather cold and  i remote   person,   hypercritical  'with small capacity for love.  '. Agee idolized his father and was  ! shattered by his untimely deathr  i from a car accident in 1916.  '������   Agee was a uneven student  but  his  brilliance in English  I earned him a scholarship to  ^Harvard. Here he became editor  ��of the college literary magazine,  vWote prize-winning poetry and  (^determined to make this  his  ^life's vocation. Here also, he  ^developed   an   overwhelming  fondness for alcohol and tobac-  Qco that would dog him down the  ^est of his days,  rf   By the time Agee graduated  /from Harvard, the Depression  (.Ws underway and his plan of  ^becoming a professional poet  ^seemed decidely impractical. Instead, he opted for journalism  v-��uid took a job as staff writer at  ^Fortune Magazine, a glossy new  {���publication just being launched  rfiy Henry Luce, founder of the  '-vvastly-successful Time.  ��/ Fortune     was     mainly  V>dedicated   to   glorifying   Big  rjBusiness. Luce demanded top-  motch writing and loved to hire  &>'literary" writers such as Agee  and eminent poet, Archibald  McLeish.  Agee polished his prose crafts  at Fortune, turning out a series  of brilliant essays. His most-  important piece of this period  was a study of southern share-croppers, so controversial that  JJLuce refused to publish it. It  Revolved into Agee's classic study  ��!bf poverty, Let Us Now Praise  �� Famous Men.  f Agee's great love was film.  <He eventually became movie  $ critic for both Time and The  �� Nation. His quirky, brilliant  previews established a standard  | of excellence for the burgeoning  I form that endures to this day.  | His amazing grasp of the  s film medium led inevitably to  | Hollywood and a script-writing  j career. His most notable  i achievement was The African  Queen, which he co-authored  with John Huston.  But Agee's personal life was a  complex disaster area. He was  married three times and had  numerous mistresses. All the  relationships were clouded by  Agee's excessive fondness for  the bottle. Whiskey was his constant companion and he threw it  back like water, chain-smoking  all the while. Such a regimen is  hardly conductive to good  health and by his mid-40's,  James Agee was a physical  wreck with liver damage and a  serious heart condition. After  his second coronary, it became  obvious to all his friends that he  had only a short time to live.  Agee had always had a  curious disregard for the state  of his^bodyi'NowJit was failing  him, he accepted the fact  philosophically. Forbidden to  drink or smoke, he gave both  habits up briefly but soon  returned to them. He remained  creative till the end, still writing  in his last hours. On May 16,  1955, James Agee suffered a  fatal heart attack in the back of  a cab.  Bergreen tells Agee's sad  story extremely well, casting  much new light on the life of a  man.who was a walking conundrum.  Your guide to  the finest in  area dining  e I  pi  THE  WHMf  This Coast's Finest Dining  On the Beach, Davis Bay  ':��� '���;;a$5-:72fl&:,'.:'':  Coast News, Februarys 1987  13.  by Penny Fuller  The sun rises in the east and  sets in the west, (even if you  don't believe in astrology).  Your rising sign or ascendant is  the sign on the eastern horizon  when you're born and it  changes about every two hours.  Those of you who were born  between about 5 pm and 7 pm  face an interesting situation  because the sun (on the western  horizon) is in the opposite sign  from the ascendant.  The opposing signs in the  zodiac are: Aries-Libra;  Taurus-Scorpio; Gemini-  Sagitarrius; Cancer-Capricorn;  Leo-Aquarius; Virgo-Pisces. So  if you were born in Libra between 5 pm and 7 pm your rising  sign is Aries. A person with Sun  in Aries born at that time has a  Libra ascendant. Get the picture?  Opposites in astrology represent a challenge to balance very  different kinds of energy. Some  people of a negative turn of  mind could consider this a 'problem', but if you can pull it off  it can be a very positive way to  function in the world.  If your rising sign (social  packaging), is quite different  and even opposite your sun  (your true self), you probably  confuse a lot of people including yourself. You may frequently kick yourself and wonder why you acted such and  such a way in a social situation.  Other people probably think  that you're hard to get to know,  mainly because what they first  meet is verv different from the  person they come to know.  First, stop kicking yourself  and appreciate your own diversity. That is a valid part of you  that helps you function.  Second, when you're reading  about different astrological  signs, read your rising sign too.  Anything positive that's written  is available to you, within you.  Of course so is . the negative  stuff but you don't need to use  it.  Thirdly, if you're one of  those people who read about  your sun sign and say, "That's  nothing like me," then you're  probably taking most of your  sense of identity from your rising sign. The trouble is, most  people who do that don't seem  to be really happy with  themselves. The idea, always, is  balance. Use the positive  energies available to you,  especially from your sun sign.  If everything you read says  you should be daring and  adventurous, then that's there  inside you somewhere. It could  explain why you often feel  bored, if you're not using the  energies of your sun's position.  Astrology shouldn't make  you feel like you have to fit into  a slot ordained by the stars. It  should make you aware of all  the vast potential inside you as  an individual. If there are oppositions in your chart, use  ,them. They are only describing  aspects of your personality that  you already know.  You can and should feel comfortable acting like your rising  sign in social situations without  feeling as if you're compromising your real self. Just don't  forget to let your inner self  show as you get to know people  better.

Niyht  Pool Tournament  Starts 9:00 pm  A listing of  restaurants  and pubs  To end a long and arduous day my friend and I decided on  a romantic dinner for two at Cafe Pierrot.  En route to our (festive) destination we drooled in anticipation of the savory feast ahead.  We were greeted by a friendly waitress and menu offering a  wide selection to choose from. While we deliberated over the  diverse menu we commented on the tasteful decor and relaxing music.  With our palates tantalized we sipped the splendid house  wine and effervescent Mexican beer as time suffused amidst  stimulating conversation, not only between ourselves, but  also the warm atmosphere favoured pleasant chats with  neighbouring tables.  To start off I chose the spinach salad which was as appealing to the eye as it was to the taste buds. Garden fresh and  smothered in a zesty herbal cream dressing, it was a smash  hit. My friend ordered the more exotic prawns as an appetizer. They were delightfully tasty morsels delicatly coated  in a batter and garnished with crispy romaine lettuce, lemon  and European sauce, a "sauce d'excellance".  For the entree I elected Fettucini Benjamin. The noodles  were superbly home made and the cream sauce, well...mortal  words fall short in describing this heavenly dish. Suffice to  say that tasting is believing. My friend decided on the eight  ounce New York steak, a succulent winner cooked to perfection and chaperoned by three marvelously prepared  vegetables, all competing for the 'Best Flavour Award'. A  baked potato of royal fame and rich mushroom gravy completed this palte. Cafe Pierrot's delicious freshly baked bread  made this a well rounded meal.  To finish off the evening I indulged in mouth watering  cheesecake, veiled in juicy peaches and he, the moist pop-  pyseed cake.  This charming Cafe is a must for lovers of excellent cuisine  and casual atmosphere. Bravo, Cafe Pierrot!

The league grew out of Sunday afternoon ball games and is  set up 'strictly for fun'. Oyer the  last three years the number of  teams was varied between eight  and 12.  Local merchants who sponsor a team buy their equipment  and then get a cut of the money  that is made at the tournament  at the end of the season, which  pays off most and sometimes all  of their investment.  For the people who invest  their time and energy to play in  the league, the pay-off is a lot of  fun.  TIDE TABLES  Wed. Feb 11  0540 14.8  1105 11.5  1500 12.6  2225    3.0  Thurs.

Our year end tournament is  on the March 18 weekend. At  the year end tournament any  team can win. So for those  teams that don't win the league  trophy, there is always the  chance to win the tournament  trophy.  At this time I would like to  especially thank the coaches  that don't have any of their own  kids in soccer but donate their  time so that someone else can  learn the game.  If there is any ex-soccer  players out there that would like  to coach a team next year, give  me a call at 885-9223 and I'll  contact you at the beginning of  next season.

The Elphi Wrecks, formerly  known as the Wamimanas,  travelled to Powell River minus  a couple of their premier  defensemen, and consequently  found themselves having trouble in their own end. Goaltender  Gary Klaussen held the fort as  best he could throughout the  weekend, but the Wrecks got in  the minimum three games losing  all three.  Their best game was the first  where they were within a goal of  the Ancient Mariners throughout the contest, the Mariners  eventually finished the tournament in third place.  The Breakers took an entirely  different club to Powell River  than the team that won the  Bronze in Victoria, and still enjoyed some exceptional hockey  games.  The Breakers defeated Port  Alice 5-2 on Sean Van Strepin's  I two goals Friday evening, and  j were looking good Saturday  j morning leading at the half 3-1  * against the Squamish Extra Old  �� Stock.  ? But the roof fell in in the se-  .�� cond period and the Breakers  �� came away second best losing  * 5-3. In their second game Satur-  f day, frustration was the key  jf word as the Breakers came up  ? against one of the best  I goaltenders they'd ever played  I against. With three or four clear  I chances   right   in   front,   the  Breakers were unable to buy a  goal. Final score, Surrey Oldies  Stampeders 4, Breakers 2.  The Breakers advanced to the  final round by virtue of their  lone win and winning a period  against Squamish, and suited up  Sunday against the host team,  the Powell River Gentlemen.  After storming to a 4-1 lead  after the half, the total team let  down allowing the Gentlemen  back in to score what was  basically a 6-4 upset.  AJ1 in all, the dance, the  swimming and the camaraderie  in Powell River was enjoyed by  all the local guys. Stay tuned for  the Suncoast Cup update coming at the end of this month.

Coast News, February 9,1987  Editor:  After reading your report on  the public hearing in Egmont,  I'd like to clarify several points  that seem to have been missed  or obscured in your report.  First I'd like to point out that  the present R-3L zoning allows  far more noxious uses than the  proposed plant, and as such, the  rezoning applied for is a  downzoning, meaning that the  applicant will give up more than  received, and will be actually  ending up with a property with  less value than at present. As  well, the applicant could legally  proceed with anything presently  allowed without any protective  covenants or setbacks.  As example, a feed plant  could be built on this property  anywhere along the waterfront  including right up against the  neighbouring property with no  buffer zone. Another example  could be sales, assembly and  storage of sea cages including  welding and minor fabricating.  This bay presently has one  legal freight and transportation  terminus, one legal 1-4 zoned  sawmill, two marine ways, and  three illegal floats, one of which  has pilings driven into the eel  grass.  Second, of the surrounding  residents, all of the property  owners with property sharing a  common lot line have no objection, nine out of 12 adjacent  residents are either in favour or  have no objection.  Within a 2000 foot radius of  the proposed plant, only three  out of 29 residents or owners  Free ferries in interior  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following was received for  publication.  The Honorable  Cliff Michael  Minister of Transportation  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C.  Dear Sir:  So, now we are facing  another rate increase on our ferries. What's wrong with that?  Nothing really, but...  First a little background.  When faced with a shutdown of  the Blackball Ferry system,  W.A.C. Bennett, a man truly  dedicated to the principle of free  enterprise, took it over and  made it a crown corporation.  Do you remember the opposition to this?  But back to our own ferries.  Back in the Blackball days we  had a schedule that started runs  about 5:30 am and continued  with hourly sailings till 12:30  am. This continued under the  new B.C. Ferry Corporation  during W.A.C. Bennett's and  Barret's days as premier.  When the load factor for the  ships in use got too heavy,  somewhat bigger vessels were  provided, but always the frequency of service was maintained and the ships closely matched  to the demand and the number  of sailings.  Then came Bill Bennett. To  him, big was beautiful! Ergo:  Jumbo Ferries, totally unsuitable to a useful schedule and  an economic load factor. The  answer? Cut back the frequency  of the sailings! Still not enough  demand for the capacity of the  vessel? Lay up one boat for four  hours. We still have to pay the  crew, but there are some savings  on fuel.  What happened? The vision  of a great country gave away to  the demands of accountants to  balance books. If that were only  all...  Let's take an imaginary trip  through this beautiful province  of ours. Be sure to get up at  about 6 am because we have to  catch the 8:30 am ferry or the  day is gone before we get  started!  Our trip takes us to Revel-  Bravo  Editor:  j I applaud the column from  Maryanne West which appeared  in the Coast News, January 26,  regarding the behaviour of  children in the school yard. Ms  West certainly spells out what  we all wish and hope would be  childrens' actions at school, or  anywhere for that matter.  A peace curriculum in the  schools would go a long way to  correcting belligerent thoughts  and actions by teaching conflict  resolution, and as a counter to  negative media stimulation.  There are those who will say  that fighting is a human trait.  That statement has never been  proven, but even if so, humans  have a brain and are able to  learn other attitudes and  methods of resolving differences.  Doris Fuller  stoke and down to the Arrow  Lakes towards Nelson. At  Shelter Bay we board a ferry to  cross Upper Arrow Lake. What  a surprise! No line ups, no  charge for the crossing, and we  find that this ferry runs from 6  am to midnight on an hourly  schedule! Just as in the olden  days on the Sunshine Coast!  From Nelson we head to  Creston. There we have a choice  of two routes. One is south on  Highway 6. The other across  Kootenay Lake and 3A. With  the good experience of the  crossing of Upper Arrow Lakes,  we chose of course, the second  one, if only to find out...  Yes, this ferry also is free,  takes almost an hour to cross,  and runs every day, hourly from  6 am to 1 am, arid the coffee  they serve is good!  Now, Mr. Minister of  Transportation, I would like to  ask you a few questions.  How much does it cost the  taxpayers of this province to  transport one car from Langdale to Horseshoe Bay? How  much for a car across Arrow  Lakes and across' Kootenay  Lake?  At one time in the 1960's to  1970's the Sunshine Coast was a  vibrant, economically sound  community. It was one of the  fastest growing areas in  Canada. The misguided reduction in the ferry schedule has  changed this part of B.C. from  taxpayers to taxconsumers. If  . that is your idea of balancing  There is nothing wrong in  keeping fares up with inflation,  but as long as we have to subsidize free ferries in the interior  of B.C., ferries that are not  really needed by the people served (any point in the interior can  be reached without the use of  them), then it is not justified!!  Joe P. Kiene  spoke against the rezoning. In  fact, other than the three immediate objectors, the next objector is roughly a kilometre  away from the proposed plant.  Thirdly, while it has no "bearing on the issue at hand, the  highway system serving this  area is adequate, and the suggestion that the proposed plant  would bring increased numbers  of semi-truck traffic is totally  incorrect.  The fish will be landed here  whether or not the plant is built,  and processed fish would be  transported daily by small  refrigerated straight trucks.  Traffic would in fact diminish,  as at present, ice is transported  up the highway for preprocessing icing now and this  would no longer be required.  Aquarius Seafarms Limited  has made every effort to be a  good neighbour, has offered  protective covenants in excess of  what the SCRD considered appropriate, and has been cognizant of the concerns of the immediate neighbours at all times.  The issue is not one of imagined problems that may  develop in the distant future,  but is one of compatibility of  land use. The Board of Directors of the SCRD will be making a decision on the facts, and  will judge the application on its  merits, relative to their mandate. To suggest otherwise is  unfair to both the applicant and  the board.  Ian A.

The mayor will now  receive $5500 per year and the  aldermen, $3685.  In other business, council  proclaimed that the week of  February 15 to 21 would be  'Multicultural Week'.  A study prepared by the  District of Oak Bay regarding  the long term safety of metal  fireplaces and chimney installations was refered to the planning committee. The study was  prepared in order to amend the  Municipal Act and the District  of Oak Bay is seeking the Town  of Gibsons' support. Copies  will also be given to the Fire  Department and the Building  Inspector for their comments.  A letter was received from the  Centennial '86 Society agreeing  to the town's request that $5000  of the society's funds be used in  Dougal Park.  A request from Bumpers, the  24 hour grocery store in the  Cedars Plaza, to allow a change  in the municipal by-law letting  them run the arcade games  from 8 am to 11 pm was turned  down by council. Under existing  by-laws, games must be closed  from 11 pm to 10 am for persons under age 15.  Council also rejected a request from the the Business and  Professional Womens' Club for  temporary free use of the  Marine Room beneath the  library. The policy given stated  that free use of municipal property can only be granted when  used for the betterment of the  town, not for the betterment of  individuals.  Council agreed to write letters  of support on behalf of Vancouver Mayor Gordon Campbell's efforts to receive federal  and provincial funding to  establish a Science World in the  Expo Centre.  A request from the Kidney  Foundation for permission for  volunteers to canvass door-to-  door during their March campaign was approved.

Last  week's winner was Yvonne Morgan, RR 2, Joe Road, Gibsons,,  who correctly located the Horses for Rent sign along North Road at.  Cemetery Road.  A letter from Eric Huggins  asking for repairs to Sargent  Road has been referred to  Public Works, which is currently preparing a study of roads.  Council also proclaimed  February 16 to 22 as 'Heritage  Week'.  Alderman Dixon reported  that Blaine Hagedorn had been  elected chairman at the first  meeting of the Aquatic Commission on Janurary 27. The  committee will be gathering information on the cost of the  swimming pool operations. The  feasibility of a snack bar wiil  also be looked into. Alderman  Dixon's request that council  provide a fund in the amount of  $10,000 for replacement of the  pool's filter was approved.  A request put before council  by Alderman Norm Peterson to  increase the time limit for angle  parking in lower Gibsons from  two hours to three hours was  met with resistance from Mayor  Strom, who felt the existing  limit  was established  for the  benefit of the businesses in the  area.  Alderman Maxwell reported  that he had conducted a survey  of 10 of the area merchants and  came to the conclusion that the  general consensus was to maintain the status quo. The town's  by-law enforcement officer will  be consulted.

No grants were allocated for  the Sunshine Coast Arts Council, the Sunshine Coast Community Services Society, or the  Suncoast Writers' Forge.  Henry Hall to have hearing  Sechelt District Council voted  to reject Municipal Planner Rob  Buchan's advice at last week's  meeting, and gave first reading  to a zoning change requested by  Henry Hall.  Hall has applied for a change  from residential to light industrial zoning on the controversial lease where his herring pens are located. The pens  have been in that location for  approximately two years but are  ���in contravention of existing  zoning.  Neighbouring property  owners have been pressuring the  government to force Hall to  remove the pens and other  structures which don't conform  to   the   covenants   of   the  foreshore lease.  The Ministry of Lands and  Forests has given Hall until  February 19 to move his operation to a new lease, which is  zoned to permit aquaculture,  that they have provided for him  an an area just southeast of the  existing lease.  Rob Buchan, in making his  recommendation to council,  pointed out that the planning  department is currently  developing the Community  Plan and until that is in place,  changes to current zoning  would be confusing and  premature. He explained that  even if council turned down the  application, Mr. Hall would be  able to reapply in six months at  which   time   the   Community  Plan would be in place.  However, council members  expressed a desire to have the  matter settled once and for all  by taking it to public hearing  and making a decision. Alderman Joyce Kolibas was vigorously opposed to the decision,  saying that it was important to  look at the history of the applicant. When first reading was  given to the zoning change  Kolibas insisted that her vote  against it was recorded.  Should the zoning change be  approved, in addition to the  herring pens, Hall would be  able to expand into boat  building and repairing.  Member of  ALLIED...

Coast News, February 9,1987  Financial analysis of ferry system  by Brad Benson  As a result of the provincial  government's restraint program  in 1982, cutbacks were instituted in B.C. Ferry Corporation's service with the result that  two sailings were cancelled on  our Horseshoe Bay - Langdale  route.  The 11:15 pm late night route  from Horseshoe Bay was dropped and except for Expo and  some unscheduled Sunday night  sailings in 1985, has never been  reinstated, much to the regret of  Sunshine Coast residents who  want to enjoy Vancouver's  night life and still make it home  in the evening.  The 10:30 mid-morning sailing continues to be run during  the peak summer months and  on holidays but is dropped during the off-season fall-winter-  spring months.  It is now approaching five  years since these cutbacks were  instituted and the situation has  changed. The recession which  created them is on the wane and  determined efforts are now being made to reinstate the 10:30  am sailing.  Every one of our local  governments has recently gone  on record in this regard. As  have our Chambers of Commerce, and many of our  respected local groups and independent residents. Without  the 10:30 am sailing, our  'highway' back to the lower  mainland has a critical four  hour daytime gap; between the  8:30 am and the 12:25 pm sailings.  The pressure to regain this  sailing is mounting. Animpor-  tant new player in the game is  the Association of Vancouver  Island Municipalities, of which  our Regional District is a  member, who intend to strongly  promote the tourism generating  Sunshine Circle Route. This  travel experience links Vancouver with the Sunshine Coast,  Powell River and Vancouver  Island, and would be better  served with the addition of a  year round 10:30 am sailing.  Approaching the issue from a  financial point of view, the  figures for the last available  fiscal year for B.C. Ferry Corporation of March 31, 1986,  shows what appears to be a  justification for the 10:30 am  sailing. On a net operating basis  (before depreciation and debt  service) the Horseshoe Bay  -Langdale route is more efficient than the ferry system as a  whole. The route's loss for the  year of $1.3 million was only  13.8 per cent of net operating  revenues as opposed to the entire system's loss to revenue of  16.3 per cent. If the Langdale  operating loss was allowed to  increase to the same precentage  as the whole system, another  $235,000 (approximately) could  be expended in operations. This  figure appears to be adequate to  cover the extra cost of the 10:30  am sailing.  According to John Shaske, a  Regional Director and chairman  of the Transportation Committee, this would entail only the  cost of fuel for each round trip.  The crew is standing by during  this period and there would be  little effect on general overhead  costs. Shaske states that this  cost lies between $600 and $700.  By multiplying $700 by the  estimated number of days the  10:30 am sailing is shut down  (eight and a half months, or 225  days), the result is an added cost  of only $178,000 (approximately).  However, when the factor of  depreciation is put in the picture, the Langdale route  becomes less efficient than the  overall system. The reason for  this is  that the depreciation  Police  news  SECHELT RCMP  A break-in at a Roberts  Creek residence is being investigated.  On January 31 the police  responded to several complaints  of a noisy party in Sechelt. As a  result, several youths will be  charged under the Sechelt noise  by-law.  Investigation is continuing into thefts which have occurred at  St. Mary's Hospital nurses'  residence.  Police are investigating thefts  of two wallets in the Sechelt  area. The public is advised to  ensure that their vehicles are  locked when unattended.  Any information on these  crimes can be forwarded to the  Sechelt RCMP at 885-2266.  figure for the entire corporation  of $29 million is 23 per cent of  revenues, whereas Langdale's  depreciation of $3 million accounts for a disproportionately  large 31.9 per cent of its  revenues. This high level of  depreciation for Langdale is  primarily due to the high asset  value of the Queen of Co-  quitlam, a 360 car, 'C Class  ferry. Its large capacity is  necessary to handle the Sunshine Coast's erratic peak traffic requirements.  There is a basis, however, for  not including depreciation when  analysing the costing of individual ferry routes. In the corporation's statements, depreciation is held out of net operations and only accounted for  near the end of the operating  statement along with debt service. As such they are considered costs of the corporation  as a whole and difficult to  equitably allocate to specific  routes.  It is also anticipated that by  adding an extra sailing, more  people would travel, thus  generating some additional  revenue.  The effects of the recently announced ferry fare increases on  the revenue/cost efficiency of  the Langdale route cannot ac  curately be analyzed for the  next year. The car/passenger increase of approximately eight  per cent would, based on 1986's  figures discussed above, generate an additional $750,000 in  revenues. Because the cost increases for 1987 and 1988 are  not known, the increased efficiency of the Langdale route  cannot be calculated.  The financial aspects of the  debate over the 10:30 am sailing  are certainly important, but  they are not the last word. The  provincial government, with the  help of the federal government,  subsidizes the ferry system for  its losses and by doing so  acknowledges that these transportation services to coastal  communities are necessary for  the public good of the province  as a whole.  The ferry system is critical to  the economic life and quality of  life of our community. These  aspects of the debate cannot  properly be addressed by the  corporate decision makers of  B.C. Ferry Corporation. They  are more properly addressed by  our locally and provincially  elected politicians. It is at these  levels that the major decisions  effecting our 'highway' to the  lower mainland should be  worked out.
