In her address Mrs. Rlzun noted that Sechelt was the first of  Capilano's rural college communities to receive its own facility, and  saw this as a major step in achieving the goal of making "life-long  At Gibsons Council  Economic  learning opportunities"' available to residents. In an unexpected  and most welcome move, MLA Long announced that the provincial government has reconsidered its position and will continue to  fund the Aquaculture Resource Centre, located in the Sechelt Campus, which was forced to close last week. Immediately announcing  the centre re-opened, College Principal Doug Jardlne gave Mr.  Long the honour of taking down the "Closed" sign.  ���Fran Bumside photo  ���Vj��.��l.jhl!iiS;V>&."5: *���*-���*!'  ..'t u 'tV-v:r,'i*��:3^ -<.*;>��  The long-awaited Gibsons  Economic Strategy Plan was  presented to members of Gibsons Council at their regular  meeting of April 7 by Municipal  Planner Rob Buchan.  The 44 page document, prepared by Buchan with the aid of  a sitting committee of local  business people, is divided into  five major sections: Formulations of the Strategy; Advantages   and   Disadvantages;  70verall Economic Objectives;  Strategies for Economic Development; Marketing Strategy.  7   In assessing the present situation,   the Economic   Strategy  sees some continuing weakness-  ���es in  the Gibsons  economic  -situation. It concludes a discussion of possible strategies as  follows:  "The economy of Gibsons,  while subject to some of the  revival in fortunes present in  the provincial economy, is still  fragile and not yet robust  enough to warrant great optimism. Traditional avenues of  employment, the primary and  a  secondary industries, are rebounding in strength as the national economy increases demand for goods produced here,  but international trade friction  still gives good reason for  measure of concern.  "Diversification, the lessen-  ting of dependence on traditional industries, should provide  a means to combat future economic   woes.   An   increasing  awareness of the benefits of  lifestyle and climate on the Sun-  sine Coast will mean increasing  amounts   of  in-migration   by  retired persons, and with this increasing population will come  increased   demand   for   some  goods  and services produced  locally. It remains to be seen,  however, if new jobs for those  of working age can be found to  replace those displaced by the  upheavals of the recent recession."  '  Among the disadvantages  standing in Gibsons' path to  economic well-being, the Economic Strategy includes the lack  of  a   'destination'   attraction  '-!���;taw%^iX^iif^f.: ���?���''.3'��y.  which would be an incentive for  tourists or visitors to devote  more than one-day trips to Gibsons; the public attitude  towards economic development  whereby residents feel economic  development would jeopardize  the rustic ambience and low  population levels which drew  them to the Sunshine Coast in  the first place.  Crucial to the development of  Gibsons as a 'destination resort'  is seen the development of a  first-class waterfront hotel. Also  seen as being of some relevant  importance in this are the proposed Gibsons Landing Theatre  Poject and the Joe Belanger  proposal for the reconstruction  of Captain Vancouver's vessel  H.M.S. Discovery and the  establishment of a maritime  museum.  In the key area of marketing  the Economic Strategy calls for  the restoration of faith in the  community, badly shaken by  the recent recession, and a  broad consensus of public opi-  ynve i I ed  Local unions and the Sunshine Coast Teachers' Association (SCTA) responded last  week to new legislation proposed by the provincial government  which will change the status of  teachers and the B.C. Labour  Code.  Bill Forst, president of the  SCTA, told the Coast News last  week that teachers are angry  both at the content of the  legislation and the lack of consultation in drafting it.  Although teachers have been  granted the right to strike under  Bill 19, education has been  deemed an "essential service"  which will seriously restrict any  excercising of that right. Bill 20  causes further concern for the  teachers in adding sick leave to  the list of items which must be  negotiated with local school  boards. The result will be a wide  disparity in working conditions  and quality of education, Forst  said, as individual districts have  contracts with teachers which  differ in pay, benefits, working  hours and job definitions.  He warned that teachers'  associations throughout the  province will be considering job  action proposed at a B.C.  Teachers' Federation meeting  last week.  "Parents should be aware,  though, that even if we take no  action, schools are going to be  significantly different under the  new legislation" he said.  The Sunshine Coast Labour  Council has also strongly rejected the new legislation. Lynda Olsen, council president, told  the Coast News that there were  so many specific items which affect different unions that the  Labour Council has just rejected the entire legislation.  At the April 6 general  meeting the Labour Council  passed the following resolutions:  That the Sunshine Coast  Labour Council support the  Sunshine Coast Teachers  Association in condemning Bill  20, the Teaching Profession  Act.  That the Sunshine Coast  Labour Council condemn Bill  19, the Industrial Relations Act.  That the Sunshine Coast  Labour Council lend all  necessary support to the B.C.  Federation of Labour and the  B.C. Teachers' Federation in  their opposition to this repressive legislation.  Since these are not local  issues, any significant action  will be on a provincial level, she  said, probably co-ordinated by  the B.C. Federation of Labour.;  However, the local labour council is attempting to get as many  people as possible to a protest  rally which will be held at the  Agridome in Vancouver on  April 14.  " VanderZalm has done  radical heart surgery on us,"  she said, "we've got to fight  back."  nion in favour of economic  development if the local  economy is to be revitalized.  Perhaps.the single most provocative; thought in ih& Economic Strategy is contained in  the preamble;  "The economic trading area  of Greater Gibsons has been  defined as including all of  Regional Areas E and F as well  as the town, from the sea to the  Provincial Forest Reserve.  Therefore it is our first and  foremost (emphasis is the  report's) recommendation that  an objective study be initiated to  report on the benefits and costs  of aligning Gibsons' actual 'artificial' boundaries with those  economic.  "Such a report should meaningfully address existing community plans and assure that  there will be little or no change  in property taxes."  At their meeting of April 7,  Gibsons Council received the  Economic Strategy for consideration.  Kiln feasible  The Forestry Advisory Committee of the regional  Economic Development Commission has found that a  lumber drying kiln is a technical and economic feasibility, if  if the kiln is located next to an existing sawmill.  Such a kiln would increase the value of lumber exported  from the Sunshine Coast.  The report says that the most logical organization of such a  kiln would be a deomocratic co-operative of sawmill interests  to ensure that each could make full use of the drying facility.  The consultants for the report (Carroll-Hatch Limited) also  recommended the development of a Forest Products Industrial Park and the advisory committee concurred with this  recommendation.  Play Reading  Driftwood Players will be holding two readings of modern  Canadian plays Wednesday April 15 and Tuesday April 21 at  7:30 pm at Nest Lewis' home, 98 Kelly Road, Gibsons.

Anyone interested in participating in Cavalcade '87 is  welcome.  BO participate in  10th April Fools' Run  y The tenth annual April Fools'  -jRun from Gibsons to Sechelt  drew a record number of participants on Sunday, April 5,  and saw the Coast News Challenge Cup won outright by  three-time winner Glen Chilton,  formerly of Winnipeg, but now  running as well as ever out of  Calgary.  ; Chilton, the winner in 1985  -land 1986, stormed to the finish  iine at the Sechelt Cenotaph this  year more than 10 minutes  Tiahead of the second place  'finisher. He won, in addition to  .the Challenge Cup, a brunch at  iAndy's Restaurant and a $20  iGift Certificate at Blackberries  ;in Sechelt.  : In second place some 11  minutes behind the winner in  tone hour 29 minutes and six  seconds was Brent Kamenka of  iVancouver, winning a sports  :Bag from Linnadine's Shoes,  and finishing just over a minute  ahead of Brian Jones of Maple  Ridge who finished in one hour  30 minutes and 40 seconds.  Perhaps the performance by  Jones was the most remarkable  of the day since he is a 57 year  old and also took the First  Master Award for those over 45  years. Jones won a Pen Set  from Dockside Pharmacy and  shorts.  Second place finisher Kamenka also won a one hour  massage from Jaynee's which  he was happy to accept immediately.  Another double winner was  Irene Lugsdin of Selma Park  who was first lady finisher  overall, in a time of one hour 52  minutes and eight seconds, and  First Master Woman (a category for over 35 year olds).  Lugsdin won a Hair Products  Basket from Hair We Are and a  Soap Basket Set from the Landing General Store.  Langdale Elementary School  won the elementary relay and  were rewarded with passes to  Gibsons Swimming Pool and a  large pizza; and the Morcum  Family from Whonnock won  the Open Relay.  Another notable finisher was  Arnie Tveit-Pettersen who has  completed just about all 10 of  these runs since their inception  in 1978.  Two Vancouver ladies, Patience Silbernagel and Kelsey  Bamber, finished a brave last  even and were awarded with a  session in the flotation tank at  Supershape in Sechelt which  they gratefully accepted without  delay.  Over 80 people participated  in this tenth annual April Fools'  Run and it would appear to be  safe to say that the Sunshine  Coast's own semi-marathon is  becoming an event for which  runners mark their yearly calendars.  With full sheets beating against strong southeast winds these two sail boats found themselves in close  quarters, jockeying for position, on the last leg of a sail-filled race in the waters of Gower Spit last Sunday afternoon. -Kent Sheridan photo  I   (56*   ,5--S  $ f   �� f        r   Jk   '  :.*��  V  fr yy  ..(St-O***. /aw* &. 43.t& . 2.  Coast News, April 13,1987  > raai  MttfrflHmfiiriiriiil' nihiliii  There is a grim sense of deja vu about the way in which  the provincial government has slapped the proposed new  labour legislation before the people of the province. It is all  too reminiscent of the draconian budget brought down by  the Bennett government in 1983, a budget most objective  economic analysts believe made the effects of the recession  worse than it otherwise would have been.  It is difficult to believe that a stable and peaceful province will ever result from radical changes produced in  secret abruptness by any government. If the purpose of  this labour legislation is really to improve the investment  climate of this province, it would seem already to be a  failure. The first effect is to have the trade unions promising a battle to the end against the legislation.  The complexity of the legislation as it pertains to school  teachers does not successfully mask what teachers feel is a  punitive assault on their profession.  None of the above is intended to convey the opinion  that there are not improvements which could be made in  the areas of labour and education, but it assuredly is the  intention to express the opinion that until the leaders of  this province, whatever their political stripe, understand  that the way to stability and prosperity lies in consultation  and reasoned persuasion before legislation is produced  then we will continue to have a reputation for having the  most embittered and volatile political scene in Canada.  Economic strategy  The Gibsons Economic Strategy document turned over  to council by planner Rob Buchan last week is an interesting document and it is to be hoped that eventually  enough copies will be available that members of the public  can acquire their own copies and consider its arguments in  depth and with care.  The most potentially provocative recommendation is  that the area to be considered should be what is referred to  as Greater Gibsons, including the trading areas of Area E  and Area F.  There are entrenched political interests whose political  prominence has been achieved by fostering the distrust between regions and the municipality for years. The recommendation in question will be seen as a iand grab' and the  barricades will be manned immediately with the thoughtful  meat of the strategy unchewed, untasted, and undigested.  Nor has the conduct of municipal leaders always been  such as to inspire confidence and goodwill with the  neighbouring regions.  In the final analysis, the manner in which the Gibsons  Economic Strategy is received and discussed will be an indicator of the political and intellectual maturity of the  Sunshine Coast. Recent events have indicated there may  still be considerable room for growth before 'meaningful'  dialogue can be achieved.  . from 'ft* fljk* dt the COAST NEWS  5 YEARS AGO  Despite the wet conditions on Sunday that may have  discouraged many people from participating in Debris  Days, Friday and Saturday saw between 150 and 300  people assisting in cleaning up the beaches of Porpoise  Bay. It was impossible to estimate actual numbers of  participants because many people worked independently of the committee organizers, but a Debris Control  committee spokesman said that as many as 50 beach  debris fires were burning Friday and perhaps another  100 on Saturday.  10 YEARS AGO  The deadline for beginning construction on the Gibsons swimming pool is July 9 and the controversy about  the size is still going on.  The only sensible course of action seems to be, since  the initial cost is not the major hurdle, to go ahead with  a 25 metre outdoor pool and, if sometime in the future it  becomes economically possible to carry the cost of having it open all year, then cover it, and we will have a  facility which will serve the community well in the  future.  20 YEARS AGO  Wally Peterson had a close call while driving his truck  down the highway last week. According to Wally, he  was passing the school at a normal speed and, on  changing to second, nothing happened. The axle had  apparently slipped out of the rear wheel differential. He  hit the brakes, but the drums had pulled out past the  shoes and Wally had a runaway truck careening down  the hill.  30 YEARS AGO  Elphinstone Aero Club members are seeking financial and other forms of assistance to get them started  on the work preperatory to the construction of an airfield.  A letter has been drafted which will be sent to individuals who, members feel, would have an interest in  the project.  40 YEARS AGO  Captain J.A. MacDonnell, managing director of the  newly formed company, Marine Express Lines Limited,  announces a new fast boat service to Pender Harbour,  Jervis Inlet area.  if.

Coast Lines  There must be a better way  by Nancy MacLarty  With Easter coming up, I  thought I would try to write  something religious this week.  As you know there's been a lot  of bad press lately regarding the  way folks have been praising  God. In the States, it's the unfolding story of Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker...in B.C. it's  the spectacle of people being  forcibly removed from the  'Prayer Room' in our  Legislature. It's all on  T.V....and the ratings have  never been higher.  In the US, TV Evangalism is  big business...and a lot of it is  show business. They seem to  have a flair for that sort of thing  in Reagan land. Just check your  TV Guide each day and see me  listings, usually early in the  morning, for programs like  Jimmy Swaggert, Jerry Falwell,  George Vandeman, Oral  Roberts, Rex Humbard, Robert  Schuller, the 700 Club, Ernest  Angley and 'The Jim & Tammy  Show.' They're all trying to  "bring the word" to us...some  in a more subtle manner than  others.  You see, in TV Evangalism,  there are two factions. The  charismatic or mystical forces  (those who speak in tongues and  are slain in the Spirit) have Oral  Roberts telling us God has told  him he will die if we don't send  him $8 million dollars by a certain date.  Jimmy Swaggert (Jerry Lee  Peace notes  Lewis' cousin) paces up and  down a stage preaching and  sweating and taking time out to  join the band for a few  numbers.  Ernest Angley (complete with  silk suit and toupe) performs  miracles making lame people  walk and deaf people hear.  The Fundamentalists on the  other hand, have Jerry Falwell  and Robert Schuller, among  others, preaching in a more  staid manner...usually in a  cathedral with a choir in the  background. They all have one  thing in common though.  They all need money to keep  the ministries on the air and  they all have addresses in  Canada for us to send our offerings to.  I can't help but think that  when Jim and Tammy saw Oral  threatening to die if he didn't  reach his goal, they decided to  go him .: one better. There's  nothing the viewer likes better  than a soap opera.  So while Oral was perched in  his prayer tower waiting for the  money to roll in, the story broke  about Jim's sexual encounter  with a church secretary, the ensuing blackmail and Tammy  Faye's drug problem.  The public ate it up. "These  people are human just like us"  they said as they wrote out their  cheques. And to bring in the  more prudish Canadians, there  was our own David Mainse  from 100 Huntley Street hosting  the PTL Club while the Bakkers  went  into  seclusion  in  their  palatial Palm Springs rectory.  Jim and Tammy Faye made a  mistake though when they said  it was all a conspiracy to undermine their credibility and steal  the PTL ministry away from  them. Right then, Jimmy Swaggert, who had not been formally  named by the Bakkers as the  conspirator, jumped into the  picture and received more free  publicity than he had ever  prayed for.  Now, more stories are coming out about Tammy's crush  on country singer Gary S. Pax-  ton whose wife was Tammy's  best friend and Jim's jealousy  over the affair. Karen Paxton  now says she has a photo of she  and Tammy Faye "clowning  around" in black lace  underwear. I'll give you odds  that it will show up soon as a  centrefold in Playboy or Penthouse. It all seems to have gotten out of hand. And all in the  name of the Lord.  Surely there must be a better  way. After all, they say that  they are all after the same  goal...to bring the word of God  to us poor miserable sinners.  Maybe if they joined forces and  worked together1 instead of trying to one-up each other with  Christian Disneylands and  crystal cathedrals they might accomplish it.  Over the ages this world has  experienced enough "holy  wars." So, Christians, enough  already! Stop the  fighting...whether it's over  television ratings or who gets to  pray in our B.C. Parliamentary  Prayer Room. After all, it's  Easter.  The Business  She wanted it all but  was too busy  having it  to get on  with the business  of getting it  He wanted it all but  was too busy  getting on  with the business  of getting it  to have it  Lionel Kearns  "Egg from which wars are hatched  j j  by Alan Wilson  I wish to report that I did my  journalistic duty recently and  sat through all 14 and one half  painful hours of the mini-series  Amerika. I must say, as someone who doesn't watch much  TV, it was not only chilling to  see the airwaves used to perpetrate such hatred, but I didn't  like becoming an' appendage to  the tube every evening for a  week, having a parade of idiotic  commercials tatooed into my  brain.  It is interesting to note that a  program which made much of  Soviet brainwashing, would  itself be in effect a week-long  immersion experience in 'reeducation', purveying exquisitely dramatic images of stifling  drabness and Soviet brutality  superimposed on the gay  American commercialism of  flavoured toothpaste, soft  drinks, and underarm deodorant. Here was the violently  repressed 'new Amerika' set  against all the existing glitter of  the free world.  As supporters of the program  were quick to point out, one of  its obvious purposes was to  rekindle nationalistic pride in  traditional American values. All  very positive. But opponents of  the program rightly add that it  did so by promoting fear and  hatred, by raising the spectre of  Soviet evil and arousing  American sentiment against the  United Nations.  The message was clear.  America is the last bastion of  freedom. As one character said  in this post-conquest Amerika:  "This may be the first time in  history there's no escape. Now  there are no safe places."  America, we are being told,  should be defended to the end.  The end? What end?  The fact that Amerika was  apparently spawned by patriots  in the aftermath of The Day  After, a rather mild rendition of  nuclear holocaust which was  thought to have lessened  America's "will to fight", suggests that its purpose was to  renew the will of Americans to  die defending their country, in  other words, not to fear war  with the Soviets.  It may also be that another  purpose of the program was to  create a certain mindset in  America prior to the next  presidential election, in 1988.  Over and over again the viewers  were reminded that the failure  of Devin Milford (Kris Kristof-  ferson) to win the 1988 election  initiated the downfall of America. Look what will happen if  you vote the wrong way in 1988  it seemed to be saying.  Beyond this, however, was  the more subtle and nefarious  purpose, the innoculation of the  American people against criticism of their way of life by promoting distrust. The program  showed that all purveyors of  such criticism are liars, traitors,  propagandists, indeed agents of  communism. Thus Amerika not  only promoted hatred of external forces, but also of those  who are un-American. Shades  of McCarthyism.  For example, we saw the procedure of 'behaviour modification' at a hospital where  dissidents were shown images of  decadent   America:   of  show  girls, of the KKK, of drugs,  wealth, poverty, gambling, the  military, 'the bomb', guns, the  stock market, racism, third  world exploitation, etc. The  message was clear to the TV  viewer: such images are distortions of America. They are  Soviet propaganda, are brainwashing and are therefore untrue.  In the same way we saw an  Amerikan version of the Hitler  Youth learning that America of  old was a bad place, that the  pioneers slaughtered the Indians, that immigrant labour  was exploited by wealthy industrialists, and so on. Again  the TV viewer was led to conclude that all this is merely  Soviet propaganda.  We saw Caleb, the young son  of Devin Milford, who was  'turned' by Milford's traitorous  wife, warning that patriotic  Americans have "tried to confuse us with the lie that the old  America was a good country.  We know that lie."  When a Soviet puppet official  says that they should no longer  allow "people of questionable  loyalty and character to continue to teach our young  people", the message is clearly  intended to transfer to the current American educational  system. It must be 'purified',  even if this means rewriting  history.  This emphasis on revising  reality was pervasive in the program. As one character said: "I  know how to make a lie into the  truth without anybody being  able to tell the difference." This  sounds like Orwell's 1984,  where history was constantly  being rewritten in the Minstry  of Truth.  If Amerika proved anything,  it proved that the Soviets are far  from owning the patent on  manipulative propaganda. In  fact Amerika may have reached  new heights in the creation of  paranoia.  By sponsoring paranoia, not  only to the Soviets, but to  'liberal values', to the educational system, and all things  'un-American', Amerika tried  to mobilize national hatred.  Citizens of Orwell's world had  their emotions organized in exactly the same way by daily  'two-minute hate' broadcasts.  And in the same way that  Orwell's citizens were conditioned to total trust in the  'benevolent' image of Big  Brother, Amerika established  the flag, the Pledge of  Allegiance, the anthem, and  Abraham Lincoln as the only  trustworthy symbols of reality.  These became the embodiment  of 'good' versus the Soviet embodiment of 'evil'.  Is the creation of paranoia,  on the one hand, and blind faith  on the other, the way to build a  strong democratic nation? Is it  the way to create peace in the  world? I don't think so.  Rather it is the way to so confuse and frighten people that  they are easy to manipulate into  support of whatever cause is  trumpeted next: another  Grenada, another Libya,  another Nicaragua, another  Vietnam.  As De Maupassant said:  "Patriotism...is the egg from  which wars are hatched." iUllluailMJIMHMIIIiHUIIHWMlMDHWiliJiwi  Coast News, April 13,1987  ���J  Editor:  The President of the B.C.  : Teachers' Federation (BCTF),  Elsie McMurphy, claims there is  no reason to create a College of  Teachers to deal with the  discipline and competence of  public school educators. Oh,  yes there is, and she knows it!  Admittedly, first impressions  from the BCTF Members'  Guide would make it seem that  : there is ample internal legisla-  \ tion and professional concern  for this purpose. Many pages of  close print ostensibly govern  members' ethics and standards  of practice. Also, there are compassionate policies for students  with special needs and at least  two dozen students' rights.  What the public, and most  teachers, do not understand is  that most of this governance is  there for public relations purposes only: in almost all cases,  the policies are not binding  upon members. Nor are the  students' rights of any protective use to students. Students do  not even know these so called  rights exist.  It is true that there are some  government limitations on the  powers of the BCTF. However,  the federation has not used one  hundredth part of its existing  powers to discipline its delinquent and/or incompetent  members. On the contrary, it  uses its massive financial and  legal resources to shelter and  cover up delinquency and incompetence.  When students' rights have  been grieviously violated, and  shown to have been so, the  BCTF concerns itself only with  the protection of the violator  and ensuring that he/she shall  remain "a respected member of  the federation". And the student victims, who have not even  been told of their student rights,  are left to look after themselves.  To do this, the BCTF has a  whole arsenal of Investigation Committees, Judicial Committees, Ombuds Committees et  cetera which it uses to delay and  frustrate justice.  Here is an example: recently,  the BCTF Ombuds Committee  agreed to investigate a case of  alleged maladministration by a  school principal in which, it was  alleged, a number of students  with special needs had been  grieviously harmed.  Prior to the investigation,  BCTF's head office persuaded  local teachers to delay any action by assuring them that "The  Ombudspersons have full (sic)  powers to investigate and to  prescribe redress..<" and it  "does not have the power to  judge the competence of in  dividual members."  I could give at least a dozen  examples where the BCTF has  used devious methods and "dirty tricks" to mislead its own  members and frustrate justice.  If the public wants an accountable education system and  if parents want to protect their  children, two items of legislation are essential: the setting up  of a 'College of Teachers' and  the exclusion of school principals from the teachers' union.

Mary Otto Grieshaber  Cedar Isle Farm  Agassiz, B.C.  and public sector employees  have been on a drive to reduce  the real income of workers. The  Social Credit Government in  Victoria has been a close ally of  the employers. They have put in  place an increasing number of  legal restrictions to make it  more difficult for union to resist  the drive for concessions.  These restrictions for example, have resulted in government employees not receiving a  single wage increase over the  rate of inflation for the last 10  years.  During the hearings on Labour Relations and the Labour  Code the B.C. Government  Employees Union (BCGEU)  and most other unions and  labour councils made submissions, asking for restrictions on  free collective bargaining to be  removed and the rights of  organized and unorganized  workers to be restored and improved.  The employers asked for  more restrictions.  What the government is proposing now is to throw out the  present Labour Code and bring  in the Industrial Relations  Reform Act (Bill 19)..  The new Industrial Relations  Council, headed by Ed Peck at  $130,000 a year, will. have 'the  power to intervene at virtually  10th Run best ever  Editor:  The tenth annual April Fools'  Run was a smashing success,  with almost 80 runners taking  .part, the biggest group ever.

All public and private sector  workers can be declared essential if, in Peck's opinion, they  disrupt the economy or affect  the public interest. Settlements  can be imposed based on the  employer's ability to pay. (Of  course they never have money  for higher wages.) This together  with the numerous other restrictions on labour in Bill 19 will  mean the end of free collective  bargaining in B.C.  If this bill becomes law all  workers in B.C. can look forward to a further decline in their  standard of living. Small business can look forward to a  decline in customers. Only big  business wins.  Workers and their families  form the vast majority of people in B.C. and we cannot allow  the destruction of our labour  rights.

Gardening  notes  by Marguerite  Pioneer Park tulips and daffodils are a sight to behold, and  a great background for a snapshot especially when the sun  shines.  New strawberry beds need  humus rich soil, plus one half  cup dried blood, plus two cups  bone meal, and vast amounts of  chopped straw, well dug in. It's  probably how they got their  name, and you will get superb  strawberries.  Another reason to mulch, it  retains moisture, keeps surface  damp, reduces need to water,  allows garden to be safely left  for longer period of time.  I attended the B.C. Council  of Garden Clubs Conference  recently and Dr. H . Daubeny  from AGG Fraser Valley was  guest speaker on the subject of  raspberries and strawberries.  This area of 5000 acres produces the highest yield per unit  of any region of the world today. Its combination of suitable  soil and climate is mild enough  that the plants do not suffer  winter damage.  "Willamette" established for  30 years is now raspberries.  They are being replaced by  "Chilcotin" cultivars, with a  bright glossy colour, larger  fruit, and longer shelf life for  markets.  "Nootka" and "Haida"  cultivars are still being researched. The popular "Totem"  strawberry cultivar also came  out of Dr. Daubeny's research  program, and 80 per cent of  Fraser Valley farmers grow it.  The plant sale was well supported. Thankyou gardeners,  and workers, Gibsons is going  to be "blooming beautiful" for  us all.  If you have a query or problem, drop a line to box 461,  Gibsons, and we will attempt to  help you if we can. Keep  mulching!  PORK  SHOULDER *, 2.18 >��.

Meanwhile,  Happy Easter to all.  by Peggy Connor, 885-9347  The two nights of fashions'  put on by the Sunshine Coast  Business and Professional  Women's Club proved a great  success by the close to 400 persons attending.  The proceeds from this event  go to provide special bursaries  for local young women. Two  $500 bursaries will be awarded  to business oriented students  from the local secondary  schools and one to a mature student who has gone back to further his/her education.  The work put into the  backdrop and stage was well  worthwhile and was complemented by the fresh bright table  decorations. A potted plant was  a take home gift for each person  attending and the carrot cake  and coffee was a tasty treat.  Carolynne Breadner and  Aleta Giroux kept up an informative and pleasant commentary of the lovely fashions  displayed by the models.  The models were Myrna Ed-  wardson, Frieda Fawkes, Barbara Joe, Kay Mittlesteadt,  Fran Ovens, Paula Rempel,  Jean Rowledge, Karen Solli and  Sharon Sheen.  Clothes were provided by  Cactus Flower, Conchita  Designs, Just For You and  Ralsten Zales.  Bobbie's Family Shoe Store  did a fine job of matching color  shoes and smart blacks and  white to really complete the outfits.  "The Finishing Touch" a  demonstration on accessorizing  was done by Jan Kennedy, with  jewelry from 2nd Look Boutique and Ralsten Zales.  Coordinators for the whole  show were Jan Kennedy, Myrna  Edwardson and Aleta Giroux.  Colour, style, suits, dresses  and sportswear, it was all there.  Adding to the excitement of the  evening were the many door  prizes, from airline travel bags  to lunches, dinners, wines and  chocolates, a great variety.  There was also a special  draw, of the two nights combine  ed, for three prizes. The first  prize, a Tyee trip to Vancouver  and return, with a night at the  Sheraton Plaza and $500 was  won by Lauralee Solli.

It is the bridge between  printing and sculpture. Its traditions began with Picasso, Bra-  que and Kurt Schwitters in the  ;early 1900's and continued in  the work of Rauschenberg in  'the 1960's. Collages represent  (the artist's personal beliefs with  the use of printed materials, real  objects, photographs and  printed or written words to express the subject.  In  Brooklyn  Illuminations,  JNorni Kaplan's work has evolv  ed from photography inspired  by collage, to collages using  photographs. Each image in a  collage leads to other images  and the final work is completed  in the viewer's mind, controlled  by the meaning these images  have for each viewer - they can  be political, pretty or perverse  and sometimes perplexing.  The photographs at the Arts  Centre in Sechelt travel back in  time while the graffiti keeps you  right on today. It will intrigue  you and test your knowledge of  art of the long ago.  Brooklyn Illuminations will  be showing until April 19.  EASTER TEA AND SALE:  One raffle prize remained  unclaimed upon completion of  the various draws at our Tea on  April 4.

Adele deLange, Beth Nid-  dery, Mary Lambert, and  Amanda Bond were the other  winners of the various raffles.  The mini raffles were very  popular with those attending  that day.  Individual Thank You's  are out of the question due to  the large number of members  who participated in one way or  another to make the Tea the  huge success it was. However  special thanks go out to all the  donors, to the bake table, the  Thursday morning craft workers, donors of raffle prizes,  donors to the white elephant  and of course those who made  items at home for the sale.  There is one item I have been  given by the bake table.

We must not  forget the busy kitchen staff  who struggled valiantly to keep  ahead of the healthy appetites  of those attending, and the  power house force of volunteers  who manned the tables during  the afternoon. My apologies if I  have left any one out.  THE CONCERT  With each of Nikki Weber's  concerts it seems there is never  an end to the new sparkling  talent that surfaces.

COUNCIL MEETING  This meeting was held at the  Madeira Park Legion on  Wednesday, April 8 with Mike  Timms in the chair substituting  for Gerry Chailler. Prior to the  meeting, lunch was served to the  representatives of the three  branches involved by the ladies  of Pender Harbour Branch 80.  Reports were given outlining  highlights of each branches activities since the meeting at  Powell River last fall. These  were followed by the election of  officers and considerable  discussion on specific subjects  which concern all seniors.  It is a shame that more of our  numbers cannot or will not exert a little effort to attend these  semi-annual meetings. The business involved is the business of  your branch and your input will  assure that your voice reaches  from here to the provincial, to  COSCO, and all the way to Ottawa via the National Pensioners and Senior Citizens'  Federation. These people are  doing a job for you and you  owe them your support. The  next meeting will be held in our  j hall on October 7. Please mark  your calendar accordingly.  GENERAL MEETING  The next monthly meeting of  the branch is to be held in our  hall on April 16 at 1:30 pm.

"My education was important when I  was her age: Ifs just as important to  me today/'  Today, more than ever, the life-long challenge of education  must meet increasing and changing needs in our adult roles  as parents, wage-earners and citizens.  Last year, over 1,600 Sunshine Coast residents took  part in School District sponsored courses that  enriched their personal, creative and practical pursuits.

The delay has  director Gordon Wilson fuming. He told the SCRD meeting  last Thursday that the application had been pending for a very  long time and the applicant had  done "his best to meet every  concern."  At the public hearing last  month concerns were raised by  adjoining property owners  about the waste disposal plans  for the subdivision. The sewage  from the units is to be pumped  through a sewage treatment  plant and dispersed over a septic  field at the top of the property.  Wilson, who chaired the  hearing, promised residents that  the Waste Management Branch  was going to do a thorough  study of the site before the application was approved.  However, at last Thursday's  meeting he told the SCRD that  Waste Management had refused  to do the study and referred him  to studies done of the area in the  recent past.  Having gone through them  thoroughly, Wilson said he was  "entirely satisfied that the con-,  cents expressed at the public  hearing have been met and I  would like to see this project go  ahead as quickly as possible."  However, the minutes from  the public hearing must be  reviewed by the Planning Committee and their recommendation brought to the Board  before third reading can be  given. The by-laws are then sent  to Victoria for approval. If they  don't arrive there until May,  there could be several further  delays as the legislature recesses  for the summer.  Board members sympathized  with Wilson but voted against  moving the planning meeting  ahead one week.

Bi^y  IVlaryanne's Viewpoint  by Katie Angermyer  To my violin students:  I am excited about our participation in the music festival  this year, a first for us. I must  admit, I was not totally calm  about it. Each time any of you  were up there reforming my  teaching was being judged. I'm  sure your parents also felt judged. So if you were nervous you  were not alone.  I thought the comments by  Mr. Berarducci were very good.  We learned about the importance of starting together, counting, tempo (speed), rhythm,  balance, freeing our right arms  for bowing, playing in tune  (high 2's, low 2's, high 3's!) and  many other things. Always we  will need to work on these  things.  The preparation for the  festival has truly been  stimulating - the Sunshine String Band brought 21 of us  together and allowed beginners  to play with more advanced to  develop the ability to play with  others. How would you like to  try holding a bass fiddle under  your chin?  We need to thank Joel Borns-  tein and Ken Dalgliesh for backing us up on the bass and piano.  Those who did solos were brave  indeed and not only had to  polish their performance but  had to learn to play with the  piano. Our thanks to Ken  Dalgliesh is again in order.  The duets and quartets were  most exciting, probably stimulated practicing and musical  growth more than anything we  did. One thing is that each of  you had to do your part. This is  what co-operation is. I would  like all of the Books IB and II  students to try duets soon, if  you have not done so.  Congratulations are due to  those who placed: Natalie  Weatherhill third; Theodore  Desta-Morrison second; Alexandra Hook first; in beginning  solos; Miriam Kirk third; Lydia  Kirk second; and Klisala Harrison first; in intermediate solos;  the quartet (Klisala Harrison,  Miranda Northrup, Lydia Kirk,  'and Fayanne Weatherhill) third;  Lydia Kirk and Klisala Harrison  second; and Miranda Northrup  and Fayanne Weatherhill first  in the chamber music group.  Maybe there were surprises,  pleasant for some. Some of  you may think you did well,  maybe better than someone  else, but didn't get the place you  thought you deserved. You are  right partially. You did do well  and you do deserve recognition  also. Some of you may think  you didn't do as well as you  could do, or maybe didn't  deserve the place you got. Well,  Heckling is not the answer  by Maryanne West  I have mixed feelings about  the heckling during Reagan's  speech to parliament. I think  rudeness rarely wins either you  or your cause any brownie  points, it's counter-productive.  Whatever we may think of  Reagan he is the president of the  US, a position which should  merit respect, apart from the  other obvious fact that as an invited guest he could have expected courtesy.  If you're one of those who  think Reagan is the best president the Americans have ever  had, then you have no problem.  On the other hand, if, like a  great many Canadians you  regard him as the most dangerous leader, who balances the  world on the edge of destruc-  *  FAMILY BULK FOODS  DELICATESSEN  UNDER THE YELLOW AWNING, Cowrie St., 885-7767  It?s our Second Anniversary!

You not only feel very  strongly about the survival of  Planet Earth and its complement of space travellers, but  you know that if its going to remain viable, ordinary people  like yourself have to stand up  and be counted. You know that  by remaining silent you endorse  and support policies which you  believe to be wrong.  So what do you do when the  president comes to Ottawa? I  would suggest you have two options. You can boycott the  whole affair, but this presents  some difficulties in that you  don't know ahead of time what  he's going to say and its not  really fair to pre-judge him. His  speech may be after all couched  in non-committal platitudes.  The better way would surely be  to attend, but to get up and  leave quietly if philosophies are  propounded with which you  cannot agree.  One of the occupational  hazards of positions of power,  it seems to me, is that inevitably  you are surrounded by yes-men  and isolated from views other  than your own, an atmosphere  in which if something is repeated often enough it becomes  regarded as truth. It's  something we all have to guard  against as it's natural to  gravitate to like-minded people,  but the isolation becomes more  dangerous in proportion to the  power wielded by the individual.  Canadians should not sit in  silent approval of the  president's rhetoric, but how  much more effective it would  have been if all those politicians  who walk to a different drummer had quietly left the Commons. Far more effective than  desk banging and catcalls, even  if these are the traditional ways  of parliamentary dissent.

Competition is like running a  race. Someone wins by being  the fastest, but whether the  others are losers depends on  their point of view. The poor  sport complains, cuts down the  performance of the winner or  makes excuses, feels like a loser,  and is a loser.

All  arrangements for the tea are handled by  the Volunteer Action Centre; all  organizations have to do is ensure your volunteers will be  there to enjoy the celebration in  their honour.  Once again, awards will be  given for special volunteer services. Certificates will be given  to all those whose names are  submitted, with runner-up  prizes for second and third  placements and a special services award for the first place  winner.  The press have been invited  to   attend,   as   have   guest  Vspeakers from the various com-  munities   served   by   the  Foreshore  planning  (  t Continued from page 24  aquaculture opportunity" and  ���conflicts with many user groups  jare noted.  \ There was a general acknowledgement by members of the  committee that the Sechelt Inlet  has reached and perhaps even  ; exceeded its saturation point for  finfish farms and any further  ! developments in the Inlet is  ; unlikely.  i The representatives at the  ; meeting voted to send a letter to  I Lands and Forests listing several  j concerns that they would like  | considered before the study is  iconsidered final.  i The last half of the meeting  involved discussion on commencing another study which  would compile all the information collected on the Sechelt Inlet to use as a basis for comprehensive planning of the  foreshore. Chairman Gordon  Wilson emphasized that the  study would have to be a  cooperative venture including  all government departments involved in the foreshore.  The Foreshore Planning  Committee is composed of  representatives from Forests  and Lands, Agriculture, Parks  and Environment and the  i Regional District as well as Environmental groups and industrial representatives. The  Federal Department of Fisheries  and Oceans has been asked to  send a delegate, as have the  Sechelt Indian District and the  Sechelt Municipal District.  However, to date, representatives of those concerns have  not participated in the committee.  eek '87  Your Voice, Your Vote,  Your Involvement...

Writer-in-Residence Program  registrar Marion St. Denis  reported this weekend that requests for application forms to  attend the four day workshop  session in August are already  pouring in at a steady rate.  Brochures were mailed out to  writers' groups, libraries and  community colleges less than a  month ago, and already letters  of request are arriving from as  far away as Prince George,  Prince Rupert and Calgary, and  one application form has just  gone off to California.  Each participant in the program must submit a 2000 word  selection for adjudication in  order to be accepted as a student by one of the three writers-  in-residence. This year they will  have the choice of working with  Susan Musgrave in short fiction, Sid Tafler in short non-  fiction, or the team of Susan  Baxter and Linda Lawson in  humour writing.  Ms Musgrave is the author of  11 books of poetry and three  novels; she has given poetry  readings in Yugoslavia,  England, Ireland, Wales,  France and the US and served  as writer-in-residence at the  universities  of Waterloo  and  New Brunswick and the Vancouver Public Library.  Sid Tafler has worked for  Canadian Press, the Calgary  Herald, and has been published  in the New York Times, the  Globe and Mail, Macleans, and  Canadian Business. He now  teaches journalism at the  University of Victoria.  Susan Baxter and Linda  Lawson began writing humour  for themselves as a stand-up  comedy team and went on to  write sketches for the Doctor  Bundolo show and the  Beachcombers. They wrote a  column for the Province as  "Riff and Raff" and have been  published in Macleans, The  Globe and Mail, Flare, You and  Playboard. They teach comedy  writing at SFU's downtown  campus.  Accepted writers will be accommodated in the old Ranger  Station beside the Government  Wharf in Pender Harbour. Cost  of tuition and accommodation  is $60; meals are extra.

Branch 109 members attending were Bob Finlayson and  Art Rowell, both now in their  nineties.  Bob served in the Sixth Battalion of the Highland Light In-  fantry(Glasgow) and saw action  at Gallipoli, in Palestine and in  France.  Art enlisted in Weyburn,  Saskatchewan in the 28 Northwest Battalion which was the  forerunner of my own infantry  unit, the Regina Rifle regiment,  "I was a machine gunner at  Vimy," said Art.  Two WW 1 veterans unable  to attend the dinner were  George Jervis who served in the  Royal Army Service Corps in  France, and Harry Juby who:,  served in the infantry in India  and Siberia.  For 70 years Vimy has been  acknowledged as a beginning of  our national identity. What is  often not noted is that it was a  battle plan that unfolded precisely and successfully although  at cost, over 3000 killed and  over 7000 wounded.  Four divisions, of 10,000 men  each, formed a Canadian Corps  for the first time in the war.  British general Julian Byng  carefully prepared the battle  plan and rehearsed it from late  November, 1916, over four  months, until Z-day, April 9,  1917.  Timing of the advance of infantry and the artillery barrage  was crucial. Watches were synchronized again and again  before the battle day.  Thousands of bursting shells  kept the enemy down in their  tunnels and caverns but the infantry had to advance immediately under the forward  bursting shrapnel. The enemy  surfaced as soon as the barrage  passed over their positions.  The timing never faltered and  the main line of the ridge was  taken in one hour and 45  minutes. The whole operation  as planned was completed in  seven hours and 20 minutes.  The high points of Vimy Ridge,  Hill 145 and the "Pimple" were  mopped up on April 10 and  April 12.  The formidable ridge of 1917  has long been a quiet parkland,  its groves of lodgepole pine  planted to commemorate the  fallen in the battles there.  A CORRECTION is needed  in the birthday greetings to our  nonagenarians given last week.  Lionel Singlehurst of  Greenecourt in Sechelt was 93  last April 12. The error was  mine and not Lionel's.  This week Langdale Elementary presents its spring  musical,SKY HAPPY to the  public. The performance  Wednesday, April 15, at 7 pm  will be followed by Open House  which includes a bake sale in the  library.  A project called  "LIFELINE" has been com-,  pleted and is going into operation in White Rock, a project  that may have application here  on our Sunshine Coast.  Mrs. Ellen Sinclair, an active  member of the White Rock  hospital board, tells me that*  concern for the elderly and handicapped living in their own  homes alone who might find  themselves unable to call for  needed help by telephone spurred the hospital board to initiate  the emergency response system  called "Lifeline".  "The first such system in  Canada, I think" says Ellen,  "and certainly the first in B.C.  Now hundreds of seniors and  handicapped can be confident  of immediate assistance should  they not be able to reach their  telephones."  w.\ \\  ACQA - Adult Children of Alcoholics Thursday weekly meeting, St. Mary's Catholic  Church, Gibsons, 6:30-8 pm.

TRAIL BAY  by Peter Trower  Grainger, an upwardly-  mobile type who went on to  become Chief Forester of B.C.,  was hardly a typical logger. The  majority of the men who worked the woods were rough and  ready boomers with little or no  schooling. They relied on native  savvy and muscle, rather than  erudition. But they numbered  some extraordinary characters.  There were men like Bull  Sling Bill who started driving  teams in the Michigan woods at  14, worked his way up to  foreman on the west coast and  died as a bullcook in Queen  Charlotte City. There was Saul  Reamey who drove both oxen  and horses for the Hastings  Company until the Burrard  Peninsula was logged off and  ended up running a steam-pot  show on Thurlow Island. And  there was Bull Skinner Barbick  who drove oxen down the skid-  road that is now Oak Street and  graduated to running a booming grounds for the old Bloedel,  Stewart and Welch Company at  Myrtle Point.  (Most of these colourful  characters were dead long  before I ever worked the woods  but in the mid-70's, fellow logging writer, David Day and  myself tracked down an actual  survivor of the early camps. His  name was George McGinnis  and he was 100 years old.  McGinnis, still quite coherent,  was like a window on the brawling past.)  George McGinnis was born  April 1875 on Prince Edward  Island and did his first logging  in the Maine pine camps at 19.  Gradually, he worked his way  west, reaching the Puget Sound  timber country in 1902.  "First job I had was sniping  logs on a ground-lead show. I  was a pretty good axeman.  They didn't have any spartrees  back then, just one-drum spool  donkeys and line horses. Lots of  hangups. What was the camp  like? Well, the grub was okay  but they had these two-man  bunks. You had to share with  another guy. That wasn't so  hot." %  McGinnis worked the^  Washington woods for five;  years. In that time he rose  through the ranks from sniper  to hooktender (the top position  on a yarding crew). "They was  just starting to think about  using double-drum donkeys and  doing away with the line horses.  The camps around Puget  Sound, they were okay, pretty  progressive, any new equipment, they always had it first."  In 1906, McGinnis came  north to B.C. His first job was  in Lynn Valley on the North  Shore. "The Hastings Shingle  Company had a flume that ran  several miles up the mountain.  They were taking cedar from an  old burn. Huge, dead trees with  no bark on them but sound as a  dollar."  At the North Shore camp,  McGinnis sustained the only  near-serious injury of his long  career. "The axe slipped and I  damn near cut my foot off.  Bled like a stuck pig till they got  a tourniquet on me. Couple of  the fellers took me across on the  ferry to the Vancouver hospital  and they patched me up okay.  Only time I ever got hurt in the  bush. Guess I was lucky."  (We ask McGinnis about  Rough House Pete Olesen, the  legendary brawler, and other  famous characters. He had logged and caroused with most of  them.)  "Sure, I knew Rough House  Pete well. He was an American,  not a bad looking guy, around  five ten, 180 pounds, strong as a  bull and twice as ignorant. He  wasn't near as tough as he  thought he was. I knew at least  10 men who could take him in a  fair fight. His favourite stunt  was to get a bunch of guys  together and raise hell in the  bars and whore houses. Wasn't  much of a logger. Not too much  good you could say about him.  "Eight Day Wilson, the  short-stake artist? Well, he was  a different sort of man altogether. Real nice feller and a  good worker too.

Course, he  never stuck in one place very  long but he got logs in while he  was there and that's what  counted. Wilson must have  gone through several hundred  camps in his time but he never  had no trouble getting a hiring-  slip.  "One of the toughest, loggers  I ever knew was Johnny-on-the-  Spot. Hell of a fine man too but  you wanted to stay clear of him  when he got liquored-up. Didn't  take much of an excuse for him  to start swinging. I saw him take  a Swede faller twice his size, one  time. Johnny was one guy that  Rough House Pete stayed the  hell away from."  McGinnis was a bit unclear  on how many camps he actually  worked during his long woods  career but he allowed there were  a lot of them on Vancouver  Island and the Mainland.  "Never did work in the Charlottes. Heard things were pretty  rough up there."  George McGinnis' woods  career spanned over 50 years.  He was also one of the first and  least-known logger poets (our  main reason for seeking him out  in the first place). These excerpted verses describe a stakey crew  heading for a well-earned Vancouver blowout in 1908.  We were sixty men with a six  month's stake  Waiting the Comox and bound  for town  Six months on an island in  Powell Lake  All fit as a fiddle and  weathered and brown.  Six months of wearisome ten-  hour days  and a straw-lined bunk when  the day was done  With Sundays to sit on the  float and gaze  At the stump-clad hillside and  dream of fun  We're docked and the gang  plank's over the side  And sounds to the tramp of our  eager feet  Now freed from the hampering  wind and tide  We're crossing the tracks to  Can-all Street.  To Carroll Street and a welcoming hand  From the man at the bar and  from friends we know  At the Boulder, Bodega, the  Europe or Grand  All of us in with stakes to blow.  We're scattering now (we're a  group no more)  Each seeking the dream he has  nursed so long  The wine is at hand and we've  known of yore  That it widens the choice of the  women and song.

An astrological chart can  be done for everything and  anything, people, animals,  questions, gardens, nations and  yes, the world.  Somewhere back in the annals of time, astrologers got  enough perspective on the  whole situation to fix earth's  position in the macrocosmic cycle.  .Thus, the development of  humankind was divided into the  earth's passage through ages  ruled by signs of Tthe zodiac,  passing from the Age of  Taurus, through the Age of  Aries, now leaving the Age of  Pisces and moving into the Age  of Aquarius. Some of you  reading this will know a little  about astrology and probably  be puzzled that we seem to be  going backwards through the  signs, clockwise rather than  counter-clockwise. There are  reasons for that which are too  complex to go into here. Just  accept it for now.  It takes us approximately  25,920 years to pass through the  entire 12 ages of man and complete a zodiacal cycle.  Each age takes about 2160  years. In the year 1 AD we  entered the Age of Pisces,  beginning a whole new cycle  through the zodiac.  This has been the age of  religious development for the  earth. Jesus was born around 3  or 4 BC. He was preceeded by  Confuscious and Buddha by  about 500 years and followed by  Mohammed 600 years later.  Now that may seem like a long  span of time but relative to  26,000 years, the great spiritual  leaders of our time can be said  to have all appeared at about  the same time.  During the past 1986 years,  we have been deeply involved in  our search for God. Now as we  approach the dawn of a new  age, the Aquarian Age, much of  what we've learned about "God  energy" is being directed  towards the rest of humanity.  Rather than climbing mountains in Tibet and meditating or  joining a monastery and renouncing the world, people are  choosing to serve humankind.  The Live-Aid concerts,  Mother Theresa's work and  many other endeavours reflect a  growing social conscience.  Aquarius is the sign of  humanitarianism. It is also the  GIBSONS  LEGION  'Branch #109  Closed Good Friday  Sat., Apr. 18  KNOTT BROS.  April 21  General Meeting  sign which is sometimes accused  of   being   coldly   intellectual.  Those of us who have the  privilege of living at this time  which bridges the Age of Pisces  and the Age of Aquarius have  the opportunity of making a  significant difference in the  evolution of humankind. Much  of what is being initiated now  will grow throughout the next  2160 years.  Choose your leaders and  social causes well. We are all in  the process of building the  molds for our species' evolution  and none of us is insignificant.  It is doubtful that any of the  early disciples of the great  masters were cognizant of the  fact that they would shape future generations. Nonetheless,  the society that we now find  ourselves in is a reflection of  those people's strengths and  weaknesses.  If you believe in reincarnation, you have added incentive  for helping to build a "new improved world". There's just a  chance that you're wrong and  you will be making a return  visit.  On the other hand, if you  believe we only get one shot at  doing it right, you might want  to consider how you'd like your  life to read in the history computers of the future.  by Montague Royal  There have been many books  written on the history of traditional blues and just as many or  more, on the history of rock  and roll. But rhythm and blues,  the musical form that bridges  these two idioms, has been  relatively neglected. This situation has now been remedied  with the publication of Honkers  and Shouters (Macmillan) written by Arnold Shaw, a record  producer who saw much of the  action first hand. The book is  an exhaustively detailed and  fascinating study of the men  and women (many of them all  but forgotten) who gave the  blues a new lease on life.  Shaw gives a brief necessary  nod to the origins of the idiom.  The opening chapters deal with  the evolution of blues from field  shouts and chain-gang chants to  the first heyday of the recorded  form in the 20's that brought to  fame such legendary figures as  Ma Rainey, Louis Armstrong  and Bessie Smith. Shaw summarizes this germinal period  succinctly and moves quickly  through the well-travelled  ground of the 30's when the  blues were totally over shadowed by the emergence of the big  swing bands.  When he reaches the period  he calls 'The Golden Years of  Rhythm and Blues' (roughly  1946-60), Shaw slows down and  spreads out, applying his  awesome expertise to examine  the era in zoom-camera detail.  Obscure singers and musicians  who made important contributions to the genre are given  equal billing with more famous  names.  The situation in the music  business following World War  II, was, to say the least, confused. Racial prejudice was still in  full force and white singers  mooing saccharine ballads,  dominated the Hit Parade. The  only black singers to achieve  any sort of popular acceptance  were such white sounding  groups as the Mills Brothers and  the Ink Spots and singer/saxophonist Louis Jordan, who  had a much blacker sound, but  livened it with humour to slip  through the racial curtain.  In the ghettos of Chicago,  Los Angeles, Detroit and other  cities, however, there was musical ferment. Swing was mutating into the pell-mell stridencies  of be-bop and the blues, with  the addition of electric guitars  and saxophones, which were  also being transformed into a  tougher, more urgent form.  The new blues were purveyed  by such well known practitioners as Muddy Waters,  Howling Wolf and Willy Dixon,   along  with   other   hard-  driving performers such as  Wynonie Harris, Bull Moose  Jackson and Tiny Bradshaw,  now almost forgotten. Veteran  Kansas Gty blues belter, Joe  Turner, who had pioneered a  more spirited version of the  idiom in the 30' s, surged back  to popularity. The new blues  made no concessions to white  tastes. They were unabashedly  black and raunchy.  Initially, the big record companies would have no part of  this musical upstart. As a result,  a host of small independent  labels mushroomed into being.  They had names like King,  Modern, Arhoolie and Chess,  and they catered to a largely  black audience. But they soon  began to attract white record  buyers also. Shaw credits  Frankie Laine as being the first  white singer to derive his style  directly from black rhythm and  blues. Laine was the precursor  of many others - Johnny Ray,  Kay Starr, Elvis Presley, the  Rolling Stones, the Beatles and  the thousands of other black influenced white singers who were  to follow them.  But white rock and roll could  never have existed without  black rhythm and blues and it is  the story of the birth and  development of this vital form  that Shaw has chosen to document. The book is lively and  well written; featuring revealing  interviews with B.B. King,  Jackie Wilson, Ruth Brown and  many others who helped shape  the idiom. Honkers and  Shouters is obviously a labour  of love.  Sold out  Anton Kuerti's concert at the  Twilight Theatre April 19 has  sold out.

I'm not too receptive until she mentions the  Mariner's Restaurant.  Offering nearly every seat in the house a view of one of the  greatest little harbours on the West Coast, this location has been a  favourite of mine over the years. I've eaten there when it was the  Gypsy, the Jokers, and Fitzgerald's. Before my time, it was  orgirally the Dogwood Cafe.  The interior has finally been insulated and finished and is now  roomy but cozy. When we arrive, we're met with the quiet buzz of  intimate conversations. Most of the tables are already taken and I'  realize we're lucky to be seated without reservations. Since  becoming the Mariner's Restaurant under the management of  chef Laurie Perkins last fall, the place has certainly become very  popular.  The house specializes in seafood which it buys fresh daily from  the Gibsons wharf, and is backed up with chicken and steak entrees.  After consultation with our deHghtfully competent waitress, I  decided on the filet mignon with grilled prawns ($16.95) and my  partner chose the fresh steamed prawns ($12.95).  The choice was not easy. Included in the offerings that night  were fresh steamed crab, deep fried prawns, New York or sirloin  steak, and breast of chicken stuffed with crab, ham, and smoked  gruyere cheese. Entree prices ranged from $10.95 to $16.95.  For a beverage, we both chose a Swan, that great tasting de-  alcholized beer from 'down under'. Cocktails are also available,  plus a well chosen selection of wine and beer.  Dinner included a trip to the salad bar, which we both took full  advantage of.  Chef Laurie Perkins is to be given the highest marks for the appearance of his dishes. My steak and prawns were beautifully  nested among white and wild rice, vegetables, a baked potato,  and a selection of fresh fruit. Not surprisingly, it all tasted as good  a? it looked.  My partner's steamed prawns, also attractively presented, were  delivered with lots of hot butter and a finger bowl.  For dessert we both passed up a choice of torte and Black  Forest cake for a delicious cheese cake.  We lingered over coffee and finally left feeling very relaxed and  pleased with the world. I must suggest dinner at the Mariner's  more often.  NIGHT ON THE TOWN  Cafe Pierrot - Delicious bread,  pastas, crepes, desserts and more...all  freshly baked on premises. Dinner entrees from $5.75.

Closest to the pin on  no 3 was Ted Dabrindt. Congratulations guys!  The ladies had their big event,  their Spring Luncheon, complete with the general meeting  and an unfashion show!  Twenty-two golfers took part in  the Two Ball, Best Ball competi  tion. It was a shot-gun-start (all  starting at 8:30 from the various  tees). We didn't have a shot-gun  ladies - sorry about that! Including the golfers there were 46  attending the luncheon. We  - Were all delighted'with the turnout.  Mary Walker and her staff  including Vera Love, Vera  Solomon, Peggy Grabenhof  and Florence Burroughs did a  superb job. Louise McKay  made the dessert and everything  was very delicious. Our thanks  to the cooks.  The meeting followed the  luncheon and then Louise  McKay put on her unfashion  show, including Lil Abbott's  poem, John Wulcock (how did  he get in there?!), Marg  Cumbers, Shirley Durnma and  Pat Mitchell. There were a few  prizes given out (lucky  numbers) and the winners for  the golf game were Jessie Rietze  and Verna Belland, who came  first and Helen Crabb, Pat Mitchell and Sage Wright who took  second prize.

The person or persons responsible damaged vehicles on Bay  Road by slashing tires, breaking  antennas, bending windshield  wipers and scratching the vehicle bodies.  It is believed that the damage  resulted during the early morning hours of Sunday, March 22.  On March 28, at approximately 1:30 am, a culprit or  culprits entered the Petro  Canada Gas Station located on  Highway 101 in Gibsons. Entry  to the business was made by  smashing the front door windows with a large rock. Inside  several grocery items were taken  which included sandwiches, assorted cold meats and food  trays.  If you know anything about  this offence, call Crimestoppers  at 886-TIPS that's 886-8477.  You may be eligible for a cash  reward and anonymity is  guaranteed.  by Kent Sheridan  When   the  pulp  has  been  washed, screened and pumped  to a storage tank, the Bleach  Plant   Operator   (B.P.O.),  ��� Chemical Preparation Operator  ' (C.P.O.) and Bleach 2nd Helper  assume responsibility for the  next   process   stage   at   Port  Mellon.  The Bleach Plant's function  .' in the pulping process, which is  essentially an extension of the  cooking process, is to whiten  and brighten the pulp to mill  standards   and   customer   requirements.  The chemical treatment of  pulp is expensive but necessary  to gently remove the last remnants of lignim (pitch) and  resins without destroying the  pulp fibre.  The plant consists of a series  of towers through which the  Bleach Plant Operator pumps  screened pulp at a controlled  consistency and temperature  and is soaked in a succesion of  five bleaching stages in the  towers.  After each soak stage the  pulp is rinsed on a washer  (operating on the same principles described in the previous  article on Washers and Screens)  before continuing on to the next  tower for chemical treatment,  which progressively purifies and  brightens the pulp.  The main chemicals used in  the Bleach Plant are: chlorine,  which softens the pulp fibres  making them more soluble;  caustic soda, which gently  dissolves the pitch and resins  that envelop the fibre, and  chlorine dioxide, a commercial  bleaching agent that is capable  of obtaining the desired  brightness of the pulp with little  or no damage to the fibre.  The responsibility of the  Chemical Preparation Operator  is to carefully control the mixing  At Gibsons Council  Garbage, history and Benny  ���/  The Town of Gibsons garbage contract, children playing  in tennis courts, the Sunshine  Coast Maritime Historical  Society's Discovery Project,  and a petition by Benoit LePage  were items discussed at the Gibsons Council meeting April 7.  A contender for the Gibsons  garbage collection contract, Mr.  Kelly, appeared before council  regarding his bid. A Mr.  Boulderson, who accompanied  and spoke for Mr. Kelly, stated  he had obtained a small packer  and had made a deposit on  another, its purchase subject to  winning the contract.  '~J"'��� Alderman Maxwell moved to  q accept his bid, which was lowest  " amongst contenders. Mayor  Strom reminded the council  that reliability, equipment, and  the best service for Gibsons  residents should be considered  before cost, adding that there  was a difference of only $4700  between the two bidders. She  opposed the motion to accept,  but council voted in favour.  Two concerned mothers  wrote letters to council over a  resident who has been routinely  harassing children playing in the  tennis courts at Dougal Park.  The women pointed out that the  children use the area in winter,  often in the rain, and are certainly not interfering with  anyone playing tennis.  Council recommended that a  "Tennis Only" sign, which may  be confusing the issue be removed. Alderman Dixon made a  motion that the Sergeant of the  Gibsons detachment be asked to  speak to the zealous citizen.  Joe Belanger, representing  the newly formed Sunshine  Coast Maritime Historical  Society, approached the 'council for sponsorship of the  Discovery Project.  Mayor Strom stated that  although the Town of Gibsons  was enthusiastic about the project, and could give encouragement, there were no tax dollars  available for financial support.  It was suggested that federal  and provincial avenues be explored.  Alderman Maxwell recommended referring the matter to  the Tourism sub-Committee of  the Economic Development  Commission.  A minor disturbance was  caused at the meeting by Benoit  LePage who presented a petition entitled 'AVIM Scandal',  regarding a trip by council  members to the Association of  Vancouver Island Municipalities convention held in Duncan  March 20.  He accused Municipal Clerk  Lorraine Goddard of demanding policical favours by requesting a delay in the 1 pm sailing from Horseshoe Bay to  Nanaimo, in order to make a  connection from the Langdale  ferry. This service is usually  reserved for emergencies.  Mr. LePage was asked to  leave the Council Chamber.  Clerk Goddard later denied she  had even spoken to the Ferry  Corporation, and said she  would be contacting her lawyer  regarding the matter.  In other council business, an  April 19 Easter Egg Hunt in  Holland Park was approved for  the Eileen Glassford Arts Foundation, concern expressed by  the Chamber of Commerce over  the condition of School Road  was referred to Public Works,  and May 22-31 was declared  Fitweek in accordance with  Fitness Canada.  of various chemicals in a steel  lead lined tank, called a  generator, where chlorine dioxide is produced and used by the  B.P.O. in the bleaching process.  The 2nd Helper performs  tests on pulp samples taken  from the various bleach stages  and relays the results to the  Bleach Plant Operator. The  B.P.O., if needed, makes  operational adjustments pertaining to chemical addition,  temperature, consistency and  soaking retention time in the  towers based on this information.  The Helper is also the legman  for the operator, assisting and  doing any work that is required  by the B.P.O. to effectively  keep the operation running  smoothly.  When the pulp goes through  the fifth and final wash stage it  is screened through a series of  centrifugal cleaners. The pulp,  bleached to specifications, is  ready to be formed into the  final product by the crew of the  Machine Room.

How* Sound Pulp Division  April 10, 1987  Dear Reader:  Our Howe Sound Pulp Division at Port Mellon has recently applied to the B.C.  Ministry of Environment for an amendment to its existing waste management -  permit. Under this amendment we would concentrate our efforts on the reduction  of odor emissions.  We recognize that environmental protection and air quality are of concern to many  citizens in our neighbor communities. To provide you with an opportunity to  understand our pollution control program at Howe Sound Pulp, we are publishing  this information and are holding a series of Open House sessions.  We sincerely hope this material will give you a better understanding of our  operation. We would like to know what you think about pur program to improve  air quality.  Vours sincerely,  OPEN HOUSES  2:00 to 9:00 p.m.  United Church Hall, Glassford Road  Gibsons Landing  Tuesday, April 21, 1987  Gleneagles Golf Course, 6190 Marine Drive  West Vancouver  Wednesday, April 22, 1987  West Vancouver YMCA, 1735 Inglewood Ave.  West Vancouver  Thursday, April 23, 1987  Come and talk with us - see our exhibits, ask  questions, make suggestions, register your views.  What is Howe Sound Pulp?  Howe Sound Pulp is a kraft pulp mill which converts wood chips to produce  215,000 tonnes of high quality pulp which is used by our customers all ovetf  the world for manufacture of high quality papers of all kinds for printing,  writing, tissue, etc.  The mill employs 415 people directly, most of whom live in Gibsons and  the Sunshine Coast area. A further 800 jobs in the area depend on the mill4  The mill's direct payroll is some $17 million per year. Provincial and municipal taxes paid are about $2 million. j  Since Canadian Forest Products Ltd. purchased the mill in 1951, the company  has spent $170 million to improve and upgrade it so that little remains of  the original equipment. $  What causes pulp mill odor?  The kraft process which produces the pulp from wood chips gives off gases  (often referred to as Total Reduced Sulphur or TRS) which are responsible  for the odors associated with pulp mills. Howe Sound Pulp is one of four  pulp mills on the southern coast using the kraft process.  What is Howe Sound Pulp doing to reduce the odor?  We have spent $20 million on pollution control over the last nine years and  a good portion of that was specifically to reduce odor. As a result, TRS  emissions have been reduced by 80 per cent. An additional $2 million is  being spent in 1987-88 to further reduce the odor.  What about particulate emissions?  Recent Ministry of Environment studies have concluded that, in terms of air  quality in the surrounding communities, particulate emissions are not a problem.  Is TRS a health hazard?  Neither Environment Canada nor B.C. Ministry of Environment officials  believe that the current TRS levels in West Vancouver and other communities  pose any hazards to health.  Does the mill now exceed its TRS permit levels?  In 1986 TRS permit levels, expressed in kilograms per day, were only exceeded in September and the average for the year was 195 kilograms per day  compared with the permit level of 253 kilograms per day.  What are the mill's plans for the future?  We are making steady progress in upgrading pollution control in the mill  while maintaining employment. As good corporate citizens we will complete  our program to bring the mill into continuous compliance with government  standards.  What do YOU think?  Some people believe that the government should order our mill to spend a  great deal more money than the $2 million we are spending this year to  eliminate TRS odors.  Others believe that the problem is not that great and believe that the company  is making steady progress on its air quality program.  Since Howe Sound Pulp shares the Sound with thousands of people, we are  taking this opportunity to present the facts of the situation and our plans to  improve it, and to seek your views on this issue.

CN Coast News. Aorii 13,1987  Editor:  Murray Gentles, Assistant  Executive Director of the B.C.  Heart Foundation answered  some of our questions when the  Sunshine Coast Unit met with  him at the Sunshine Coast Golf  and Country Club a few evenings ago.  Our treasurer, David  Johnston, answered questions  first. How much did we raise  this year? $22,808. How much  did we raise last year? $22,506.  What encouraging answers!  How was this money raised?  By door-to-door canvass,  bridge, mail, Legion Bingo,  curling, swimming, employee  benevolent fund, businesses,  raffles. Interesting, what! The  first canvass in the district, years  ago, was by mail and netted  slightly over $200. We've come  a long way!  Mr. Gentles told us how a  group of volunteer doctors adjudicate the various areas of  research and decide which area  will receive grants of 'your'  money. He told us B.C. Heart  was formed in 1955 with an aim  to get rid of heart problems,  and the aim is the same in 1987.  Blue babies are a rarity these  days; the quality of life is improved; longevity has become a  reality.  Research is the main thrust of  the foundation. Funds are used  to train the researchers of  tomorrow.  We heard, and I pass it on to  you, that much heart damage is  done before diagnosis can be  made, but there is now new  hope, from research, for early  diagnosis. Dr. Maria Kiess and  Dr. Donald Lyster are even now  conducting research to develop  an inexpensive and safe method  of testing for heart disease.  This project is one of 53  financed by the Heart Foundation's grants-in-aid program for  the coming year. Grants-in-aid  pay for the equipment, but do  not pay the researcher's salary.  Researchers are usually on staff  at a university or in a medical or  surgical practice related to cardiac disease. Dr. John McNeil  of Victoria is involved in  research for diabeties and heart  problems. By-passes are now  quite commonplace, and a Dr.  Brownlee is working on a new  valve.  Professional's education,  public information and research  is where our canvass dollars go.  Our kids are involved too,  with Jump Rope for Heart. I  watched younsters  from two  Benefit Dance  Editor:  , The Gibsons Landing  Theatre Project Society would  like to thank everyone who  helped make the Valdy Benefit  Dance such a success.  Special thanks must of course  go to Valdy, who donated his  time and made the benefit possible, and to The Nick of Time  band who played such upbeat  music.  Our sincere appreciation goes  out to Bryan Rubin and Cathy  McKeen of Bonniebrook  Lodge, Don Hunter, the CBC,  Peter Blacklock and Chatelech  Secondary, Pat Braithwaite and  Doug, Jimmy, Bim and Zack,  Brad Benson, Pat Tripp, Terry  and Susan Weatherill, Sandie  McGinnis, Cindy Buis, Art  Giesbrecht, Raymonde St. Ar-  naud, John John, Alan Young,  Lexa Chappell and Jay Pomfret.

They raise money, and at  the same time are encouraged to  follow a healthy exercise program.  Can you believe open heart  surgery has been practiced in  B.C. for 30 years? At a recent  Heritage of Excellence meeting  the pioneers in cardiac research  and   surgery   reminisced   and  acknowledged how far we've  come due to research.  The Heart Foundation is in  business to put themselves out  of business, to stop Canada's  number one killer, heart and  blood vessel disease. Every year  every,heart has a better chance.  Credit is due the canvassers and  the public's generosity. You are  helping researchers in their goal  to keep on 'keeping the beat'.  Joan B. Rigby  With feelings mixed  Editor:  It is with mixed feelings that  we at Jack and Jill Playschool  prepare to move into our own  brand new pre-school building  with the generous help and cooperation of many in the community. It will be wonderful to  have our own permanent home  at last, but we will miss the cosy  little building behind St. Mary's  Catholic Church.  Many warm and happy hours  have been spent by countless  children and their parents in the  10 years in which our playschool has occupied the small  but colourful house and yard.  St. Mary's has cheerfully  tolerated us these past years and  have been more than generous  in asking in return a nominal  sum for our active occupancy.  So amid the excitement of  our impending move, it is with  deep gratitude that we pause to  say thank you to St. Mary's  Catholic Church.  Gayle Preston for  Jack and Jill Playschool  Thanks extended  Editor:  On behalf of the Gibsons  Landing Theatre Project I  would like to send special  thanks to everyone who participated in the Benefit Art Auction held March 29 and helped  to make it a great success.

Water zoning  enrages SCRD  The amendment to water  zoning which removes  aquaculture as a permitted use  in a W-l zone is being held up in  Victoria although the Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRD)  gave it third reading almost 18  months ago. The amendment  was delayed by objections from  the Ministry of Forests and  Lands, but in a letter received at  last week's meeting of the  Regional Board, the Regional  Director from the Ministry said  that they are now prepared to  support the amendment.  The reason cited for the  change of heart was that Wood  Bay Salmon Farms is now  satisfied that "they may operate  and develop fully to the extent  allowed within their salmon  farm production plan."  Area A Director Gordon  Wilson was outraged at the  delay. He said that the by-law  was being stalled to meet the  needs of one company. "They  have sat on this until Wood Bay  has put in everything they want.  Zoning is being legislated by  one interest and not the elected  representatives," he told the  meeting.  Wilson suggested that the entire affair may end up in the law  courts, although he didn't specify in what regard, and that it  would be useful for directors to  sit down and write out their  recollections of their most recent meeting with the former  Minister of Lands and Forests,  Jack Kempf.  Another issue which Wilson  brought up regarding the Wood  Bay operation was that he had  been informed recently of their  intention to install a large dock  and landing facility and process  fish on a large scale. Although  he had not had time yet to investigate this matter further, he  told the board it was his under-  Environment  Conference  The recent national conference involving labour, industry, government and 44 environmental groups on the proposed Environment Protection  Act was proclaimed a surprising  success by Sunshine Coast Environment Protection Project  (SCEPP) representative Carol  Rubin.  "Two areas of consensual  agreement were particularly  gratifying," she told the Coast  News in an interview. "First, all  stakeholders, including representatives from chemical and  mining industries, called for the  entrenchment of an Environmental Bill of Rights in  The Act which would, among  other things, give all Canadians  the right to a safe, healthy environment and give citizens official standing in court to bring  action against industry and  government polluters.  "Second, there was across the  board agreement that The Act  be redrafted immediately to put  emphasis on the environment  for its own sake rather than as a  system on \vhich human life  depends.  "These basic agreements are  a significant breakthrough and  we're counting on the government to incorporate them when  the legislation receives first  reading in June."  Those attending the conference also agreed that a more  comprehensive act is necessary  to protest the environment and  have called for further consultation on possible amendments to  be written into The Act in the  future.  standing that under the current  lease, the company was not  allowed to process anyone else's  fish.  In the meantime, 96 residents  from Wood Bay to the Francis  Peninsula have signed a petition  requesting the W-l zoning be  extended to cover their area.  The Gibsons Lifeboat Station  Society is pleased to announce  that a lifeboat for the waters  around Gibsons and the Howe  Sound has become a reality.  On Saturday April 18, 1987,  the new lifeboat station will be  dedicated and the Gibsons  lifeboat officially launched.  The opening ceremonies will  be held in the Marine Room  underneath the Gibsons Public  Library, 464 South Fletcher  Road, Gibsons, starting at 11  am, to be followed by the launching of no. 7 lifeboat at the  ramp of the Gibsons Marina.  The public is invited to attend  the ceremonies.  The lifeboat is presently leased from M & P Mercury in Burnaby and the station has the option to buy this boat when  capital funds are available. It is  with great pleasure that the new  Gibsons lifeboat will be  dedicated   to   Captain  W.M.  York Higgs, our local marine  rescue expert who has spent  countless hours to design  beacons and location finders, to  improve the chances of survival  for men at sea.  It was Captain Higgs who  originally looked into the  possibility of a lifeboat station  in Gibsons. The challenge of a  new station was taken up by a  group     of     enthusiastic  volunteers, who met with Jim  Condon, the Secretary-  Treasurer of the British Columbia Lifeboat Society and the  North Shore station, who have  been in operation for five years.  Since that meeting the local  station has acquired more than  100 members, had a big display  in the Sunnycrest Mall and has  just finished a very successful  garage sale.  At the moment the Gibsons  crew is servicing and equipping  the lifeboat. After the official  launching two weeks of intensive training in rescue procedures, boat handling, radio  procedures and first aid will be  held and the lifeboat will go into  full time service on May 1,  1987.  The Gibsons lifeboat crew  would like to take this opportunity to thank the community  for the tremendous support that  has been given  Foreshore planning  loses priority position  The subject of studies which  are almost completed or about  to be done dominated the agenda of the Foreshore Planning  Committee meeting last Friday.  Bruce Morgan from the  Ministry of Environment and  Parks started off the meeting by  describing a study that his  department has been doing on  foreshore uses in Area A.  The first stage of the research  used Hardy Island as a prototype for establishing criteria  which will result in a computer  generated map with a biological  breakdown of the shoreline.  The information will be  available on individual site  maps and will be very specific.  Although this initial phase  will be complete by the end of  the month, Morgan said that  the study as a whole has been  bumped down the priority list  since the various provincial  departments have undergone  shifts in jurisdiction.  The Regional District is partially funding the study and the  committee agreed to send a letter to Environment and Parks  asking for an update on the  study and estimated completion  dates.  Catherine Berris, who acted  as a consultant on the recently  completed Sechelt/Sunshine  Coast Coastal Resource Identification Study for the Ministry  of Forests and Lands, gave a  summary of the study results.  After consultation with a  wide variety of user groups a  map has been produced which  divides areas into four  categories of criteria for finfish  farm applications.  Even the areas designated as  acceptable for finfish aquacul  ture development will be required to meet the three kilometre spacing requirement  recommended in the Gillespie  Inquiry before they will be put;  through the normal application;  process. ;  Areas which are considered  important or critical to other  user groups will be more dif-:  ficult for finfish farm applicants,  to locate in. They will be re-:  quired to notify the groups with;  conflicting interests and over-;  come their concerns before an;  application will be processed.   \  In spite of the fact that  Sechelt District Municipal*  Council has stated that they  wish to encourage aquaculture,'  the foreshore which falls within,'  their jurisdiction has been noted:  on the map as "restricted finfish,  Please turn to page 11 \  ^m&^  ECONOMY  PERFORMANCE  RADIAL FROM  '*&*',  PREMIUM  PERFORMANCE  RADIAL FROM  m  OUR BEST  ALL-SEASON  RADIAL FROM  P175/70R13  Raised white letter  EAGLE ST  ECONOMY ALL-SEASON  RADIAL FROM  PI55/80R13  P185/70R13 Outline white letter  EAGLE GT  P155/80RU  VECTOR WHITEWALL ^  SIZE  P185/70R14  P195/70R14  SIZE  PI65/80R13  P175/80R13  TIEMPO  H             SIZE  PRICE  v;  ���       P165/80RI3  $55.80  H       P185/80R13  62.70  >-'  ���       PI85/75R14  66.90  ���       P195/75R14  68.70  M       P205/75R14  71.70  '���J  ���       P205/75R15  74.70  HL     P215/75R15  78.90  M       P225/75R15  84.90  i  H       P23.V75R15  87.90  7  ���MA^k^^VMlAr,    ��.a  "^k  r ^fcL_r"- 4^3  P185/80RI3  P175/70R13  P185/70R13  P175/75R14  P185/75RI4  P195/75R14  P205/75R14  P185/70R14  P205/70R14  PI95/75R15  P205/75R15  PRICE  $ 76.80  83.70  86.70  88.80  92.70  86.70  88.80  92.70  96.90  99.90  106.80  98.70  P215/75R15  P225/75RI5  P235/75R15  102.90  107.70  111.90  117.70  P205/70R14  P195/60R14  P205/60RI4  P215/60R14  P235/60R14  P225/70R15  P215/65R15  P205/60R15  PRICE  $125.70  127.80  133.80  130.80  131.70  132.90  143.70  150.90  139.80  SIZE  "P185770RT3"  P195/70RI3  P205/60R13  P195/70R14  P205/70R14  P215/70R14  P225/70R14  P195/60R14  P215/60R14  P235/60R14  P245/60R14  P225/70R15  P235/70R15  P245/60R15  P255/60R15  130.80  169.80  177.90  P215/65R15  PRICE  rmsu  88.80  91.80  96.90  101.70  104.70  110.70  98.70  100.80  109.80  116.70  113.70  116.70  P245/60R15  P255/60R15  P275/6QR15  106.80  122.70  127.80  141.90  <=:  Expiry Date  April 25, 1987  ��Ot  KAL iTIRE  GOODf YEAR  Takes you heme.
