Array :.^/Y':Yrv  '   ���V     vy    .*�� *..  ,' -?��y''-''/'  Captain William York Higgs of Gibsons who passed  away August 27, was a native son of British Columbia.  He was brought-up in the Gulf Islands and as a youth  had a great love of the sea and its associations. He was a  pioneer on the BC Coast, building up a business in marine  towing and salvage, in ^hich he was ably assisted by his  wife Ida and family members.  Captain Higgs received an honourary lifetime membership in the Canadian Merchant Service Guild and he was  also a member of: The Society of Naval Architects and  Marine Engineers; The Company of Master Mariners of  Canada; The Nautical Institute of London, England and  he was active in the Sea Cadet movement in British Columbia.  For the past 20 years Captain Higgs devoted his special  talents towards the safety of life at sea, in particular to the  design of radio distress frequency buoys and survival  vehicles.  This ceaseless effort improved and is still improving the  chances of survival for crews of sinking vessels. He spent  much time and respuirces; trying to persuade various  governments to adopt better life saving equipment.  In 1984 Captain Higgs was presented with the Rear Admiral Halet G. 'Sheppard Award' for achievement in Merchant Marine Safety. This award is administered by the  American Bureau of Shipping in New York.  Captain Higgs was honoured with a Fellowship from  the Nautical Institute of London, England and received  special recognition in Germany from the Nautical Association of Seamen.  Captain Higgs and Ida took up residence in Gibsons in  the 196��'s. Along with his already heavy workload and  travel commitments he took on, for 15 years, the coordinating and administering of Mariners' Rest, an Islet  four miles north of Gibsons in Thornborough Channel adjacent to Gambier Island which is the only official sea  burial marker in the waters of BC sanctioned hy government.  The Higgs' home was always the hub of activity, with  ongoing projects, correspondence and consultations that  were felt world-wide through all aspects of marine safety.  Captain William York Higgs was a mainstay to his  family, and to all who knew him, a gentleman.  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast  25s per copy on news stands  'Economic viability' the theme  Fish farmers hold  fifth annual conference  The Sunshine Coast  Aquaculture Association  (SCAA) will be holding its fifth  International Conference and  Trade Show in Sechelt this year  from September 5 to 8 and will  -centre on 'The Economic  Viability of Aqualculture in BC  BC Minister of Agriculture and  ��� Fisheries John Savage will give  the opening address.  Approximately" 400 delegates  from- overseas, the United  States and Canada are expected  to attend the conference and the  trade show will consist of more  than 75 exhibitors. Most of the  suppliers present will be from  yBC although there will be some  , representation from Europe and  the United States.  In addition, the SCAA is  organizing various field trips to  various finfish arid shellfish  operations on the Coast as well  as tours to a hatchery.  This year's theme for the conference was chosen, the SCAA  states, because, "during the  past five years the number of  aquaculture concerns has increased substantially.  "As the industry grows, suc  cess is becoming more dependent on the need to improve the  marketing of the product and  also the much-needed financial  assistance."  While addressing various  topics related to the further increase of farmed products,  there will be a session defining  the importance of research arid  development in aquaculture.  It is hoped the conference will  provide both a stimulating  forum and the opportunity for  everyone involved to share ideas  pertaining to the aquaculture industry.  On its debut in Sechelt in  1984, the conference attracted  80 delegates with half those participating coming from outside  BC. In the following years, the  SCAA says, this event has improved in both quantity and  quality, "making it a major international conference and  trade show."  "The demand for fish and  fish products is rising as the  understanding of the importance of fish as a source of protein grows," the SCAA states.  "Nutrition experts advocate  eating more fish, linking it to  beneficial long term health. As  a result, fish consumption is increasing rapidly which means  fish farming is growing in importance throughout the world.  "It is quite clear that the Sunshine Coast has played a major  role in the establishment of fish  farming in BC."  /    Y '   ���  Throughout the history of the  conference and trade shows put  oh by the SCAA, the-government of BC has been'extremely  supportive with the Kfliriistry of  Agriculture and Fisheries co-  hosting the dinner^arid dance,  the SCAA says, a&well as supplying speakers/6h pertinent  topics. /  All delegates registered for  the SG$A's conference and  trade show will have access to  both morning and afternoon  lectures by invited speakers  followed by panel discussions  on selected topics.  In addition, for the first time,  the SCAA will publish a bound  copy^of the proceedings of the  conference.  September 23rd  set  Residents of Areas E and F  of the Sunshine Coast Regional  District will vote September 23  on a long-awaited library  referendum.  Voters will be asked if they  are willing to support Gibsons &  District Public Library with a  slight tax increase (about $12  per average household, according to the regional district).  Area E residents will vote at  Cedar Grove School, Area F  residents at Langdale School,  between 8 am and 8 pm.  The referendum was delayed  for over one year by  bureaucratic snags. During this  time, the library board was  forced to lay off one of its two  paid staff members because of a  shortage of funds.  The board also considered  closing the library temporarily,  but donations from the public  and a $5000 "grant-in-aid"  from the regional district allowed the library to remain open.  A "yes" vote in the referendum will allow the library to  hire additional staff to cope  with a dramatic increase in circulation. A successful referendum would also give the library  ah increased book grant from  the   provincial   government,  allowing the library to expand  its collection.  Circulation and membership  have tripled in the last decade,  putting a strain on the mostly  volunteer staff, said board  chairman Vern Giesbrecht.  Despite chronic under funding  by local governments, the  library has managed to triple its  book and magazine collection in  the last decade and to extend its  opening hours to 30 hours per  week.  Even though two of every  three library patrons live outside  the Town of Gibsons, the town  has paid a disproportionate  share of library costs, the chair  man pointed out.  Iri 1987, for example, the  town contributed $8000, the  regional district $1700. In 1988,  the town gave $10,000 but the  regional district dropped its  grant entirely, in anticipation of  the referendum which was promised in 1988 but never took  place.  "This referendum will give  many people who have enjoyed  our library service at virtually  no cost an opportunity to contribute just a little bit more. A  "yes" vote will allow us to keep  the doors open and to provide  even better service," Giesbrecht  said.  Madeira Park carver 'Stomish' puts the finishing touches on his traditional Coast Salish totem pole  which now sits in front of the Pender Harbour Credit Union. (See story below). ���Myrtle Winchester photo  Pender totem raised  Sechelt accident  Traffic was slowed down for some time on Thursday morning when a large tractor trailer unit heading south on  Highway 101 in West Sechelt crossed the highway and overturned. Some damage was inflicted in two front yards of the  6700 block.  The driver of the unit was shaken but uninjured and there  was no other vehicle involved.  The mishap was caused when the driver swerved to avoid  an animal and the unit jacknifedI and rolled over.  The occupants of the two houses in whose yard the unit  came to rest were shocked by the noise of the crash.  The accident is under investigation at this time.  by Myrtle Winchester  A traditional Coast Salish  totem pole carved by Madeira  Park resident "Stomish" was  erected in front of the Pender  Harbour Credit Union last Friday morning, the culmination  of a summer's work by the  carver and three years work by  Credit Union members getting  approval for the project.  The upper part of the pole  depicts the Salish legend of  "Ya-hola thunderbird eating  Sklan-a-mutsan blackfish or  killer whale.  The winged thunderbird has a  Kul-ka-leeth (crazyman) crest  on its chest and the killer whale  has a prominent fin.  The base of the pole features  Stomish, (warrior) namesake of  the carver, and is detailed with  Tsingua (lightening snakes),  which are the Salish equivalent  of dragons.  "So," quips Stomish, "I'm  the low man on the totem  pole."  The 11 and a half foot pole,  which sits on a cement base that  extends its height to 14 feet, is  the largest project that Stomish  has ever undertaken, although  his dream is to complete a life-  sized 20-foot long traditional  Salish fishing canoe, complete  with canoers, a seal, and detailed equipment such as f dpes-and  paddles.  Three   years   ago   Madeira  Park resident and Credit Union  member Jim Warnock suggested the idea of a totem pole  in front of the building to then-  president Gib Baal, who followed the project through as a  member of the building committee.  Norm Goundry, owner of  Sunsoft Electronics, donated  the cedar log that was carved by  39-year-old Stomish and a  number of other local business  people helped out with the project.  Carver Stomish was born in  the Sna-Nai-Mo (Nanaimo)  band and has been doing traditional native carvings nearly all  his life.  . .V :.^/Y':Yrv  '   ���V     vy     -a�� *..  ,' -?��y''-''/'  Captain William York Higgs of Gibsons who passed  away August 27, was a native son of British Columbia.

We were accused last week, because we dared to  criticize the pork-barrelling that was taking place in the  Cariboo as the government tries to win its first by-  election since the last general election, of being  socialists. We dared to discern some distance between  the premier's lavish handouts for the government candidate and his stern advice to the federal government to  quit spending so much of the taxpayers' money.  The accusation was an echo of the cold war, British  Columbia style.  These days with even Mikhail Gorbachev favouring  free trade there doesn't seem to be any socialists left.  Those who think themselves as such in this province  have long since moved to the centre for election puposes  or to the far right with the vested interests for their  economic benefit.  It's getting so that a non-influential little country  newspaper might be able to ask for a government of  honest men or for some decent priorities in the government's spending programs without being accused of  having a hidden agenda.  Let us test the water of this possible new freedom by  observing that the news of brand new schools already  overcrowded as children go back to the classrooms in  1989 is evidence of a serious planning vacuum.  Is it also possible, without being labelled dangerous  leftists, to make the observation that the continuing  crisis in education health care with a shortage of underpaid and overworked nurses staffing our hospitals is  also an indication of questionable priorities and short  range vision on the part of our present leaders?  For too long, criticising the government in this province has been seen as evidence of some form of serious  malfunctioning or deep disloyalty. Can glasnost happen  here?  .from the fll## of th��  5 YEARS AGO  A permit to spray 2.4-D by helicopter in the Earle  Creek area of Egmont was upheld by the Environmental  Appeal Board this week.  Some of the members and supporters of the Sunshine  Coast Peace Committee were present at the third raising of the 'Nuclear Free Zone' sign at Langdale Ferry  Terminal on August 31. The sign has twice been removed despite approval and acceptance by the majority of  Coast residents.  Once again the young people of the Sunshine Coast  Army Cadets prove they are as good or better than the  other cadet corps in Western Canada by winning top  awards and coveted trips to Europe.  Woodcarver Cloe Day puts the finishing touches on  the burl clock she has donated for the door prize at the  Sunshine Coast Environmental Protection Project's  Garage Sale and Raffle to be held September 9 at the  Roberts Creek Community Hall.  10 YEARS AGO  An inconclusive vote is held on the voluntary liquidation of the 62-year old Elphistone Co-op in Gibsons. The  parent organization, Federated Co-ops, favours liquidation but local employees feel that the co-op had just  begun to turn a financial corner.

'  20 YEARS AGO  A Burnaby woman drifted halfway to Nanaimo after  her boat hit a deadhead near Port Mellon. The woman  spent nine hours in the water. Her husband was found  dead in the Strait of Georgia.  A family of five were picked safely from the ocean  after roping themselves together to await rescue. They,  too, had their boat sink after colliding with a deadhead.  30 YEARS AGO  The sound of Eric Thompson's pipes brought the  Third Annual Hopkins Landing Fishing Derby to a close  on August 22.  Work parties have been busy laying cement blocks  for the North Road firehall.  The annual costume Castaway party held by  Redrooffs Beach and Country Club on August 29 was  reported to be a great success.  40 YEARS AGO  Unfortunately 40 years ago is not available this week.  es bigots  We carry on Page 3 again this  week a letter from Jakob Knaus  of Sechelt who writes to Harold  Long with a copy for publication styling himself as the  'APEC Director reporting on  Education.' We serve Mir.  Knaus and his Alliance for the  Protection of English in Canada  fair warning that we may not be  able to carry too many more of  his letters for they are bordering, in our opinion, on hate  literature which was, last time  we looked, still against the law  in Canada. ���  Mr. Knaus thanks us in advance for our kind cooperation. It has nothing to do  with kindness or co-operation^  Mr. Knaus. We.publishcthisJleR  ter as we published) nonei'twa  weeks ago and as we have  published many on the subject,  from your pen, of education in  the past year out of a determined tolerance for views with  which we do not necessarily  agree.  Such determined tolerance is (  in keeping, we believe, with the  spirit of this country. It is also  remarkably missing from you or  the organization that you are  now apparently spokesman for,  Mr. Knaus.  Two weeks ago on the subject  of Bill C-27, Mr. Knaus asserted  that 'Bilingualism in the interpretation of Francophones  means not English and French-  speaking Canadians, it means  Francophones'. We submit that  this is bigoted nonsense. And  nonsense remains nonsense no  matter how vehemently urged.  In the same letter Mr. Jakob  Knaus asserts: "We had vivid  examples in recent history of  what happens when one minority group usurps the administration and imposes its own rules  on the majority." Mr. Knaus  then sees fit to make reference  to Goebels and the Nazis of the  Third Reich. ;  Our reading of history tells us  that the Nazis gained control of  Germany and used a minority  as> their whipping boys and  scapegoats to consolidate their  control'. They preach'ed'fear and  hatred; and ^racial -purity, :did  they not? ���'���'��� "; -ai �������� i<> ^yoY-/  -Take a look in this context at  the letter this week on the issue  that exercises Mr. Knaus as a  'matter of public interest' to be  dealt with forthwith. Apparently on one of the channels on his  television set, Channel 27, Mr.  Knaus finds at 10 o'clock at  night there is a French newscast.  This he declaims as a provocation and a 'contamination' and  merits a letter to his MLA.  Consider well that word 'contamination'. A newscast on one  of many television channels is in  one of the languages of the first  European settlers who founded  the modern state of Canada and  Mr.  Knaus  find this a contamination.  We submit that this is the  language of the white supremacists and the Klu Klux Klan.  This is the language of the same  Nazis that Mr. Knaus warns us  against. This is the language of  hate literature, it is the language  of bigotry and fear.  Now, lest there are those who  see themselves as liberal but  who are in fact both lazy and  apathetic, and there were lots of  those in the early 30's in Germany as the malevolent Nazis  strode to power from humble  but hate-filled beginnings, and  who think we.make too much  of alhthis, consider:     Y  'Mr. Knaiisjhas been a tireless  critic of the ^education 'system,!  though - and here I speak as a  trained teacher with  15 years  classroom experience - there has  been no discernible philosophy  to his printed utterances other  than the fact that he doesn't like  teachers. Couple this with the  fact   that   the   debate   about  French Immersion will doubtless   continue   in   this   school  district and that Mr. Knaus,  self-proclaimed title and all, will  certainly   assure   that   his  organization of elderly bigots  will be heard from ad nauseam.  The debate that should and  will take place is unlikely to be  enlightened by the murky pas  sions of the contributions from  APEC.  As an aside\ I note with some  sadness that three former  aldermen in the Town of Gibsons have lent whatever prestige  they have to this organization.  Messrs. Maxwell, Mecalfe, and  Marshall worked with Larry  Labonte, arguably the best  mayor that Gibsons ever had.  Mr. Labonte uses the English  language better than any of  these self-styled protectors of  English, and does so without  feeling any less a French Canadian.  I am reminded from one of  my days on council of an incident which seemed to me to.be a-  glimpse of Canada as it wias:.  meant to be. It was a--morning'  planning meeting and into they  Gibsons   Council   chambers  came a group of French Canadian   students   of  elementary  school age. They were part of  an  exchange  program.   Then  Mayor Labonte greeted them in  their own language and their  young faces shone with delight  as he distributed town pins to  them as keepsakes and spoke to  them in French.  Wherever they now are growing up in Quebec it will be very  difficult for those children to  imagine that anti-French  bigotry is flourishing on the  Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. Let's keep it that way.  Racism marks  The Sunshine  Published by: GLASSFORD PRESS LTD.

And yet, as we are being asked to remember the power, the  confusion, the raging patriotism  and the pain of those years, in  small-town Richmond, BC, a  synagogue is being defaced with  swastikas and it is spray-painted  with anti-Semitic slogans which  cause an old Jewish woman, a  survivor of the World War II  death camps, to weep in fear of  another holacaust.  The lessons of 50 years ago  were supposed to have been well  learned, burned into our collective memories so something like  the slaughter of Jews, and of  Russians, of Gypsies and of  Germans, of prisoners of wars,  and of all the others, soldiers  and civilians alike, could never  happen again./  And yet, apparently, it is  happening again, in small  pockets of Canada and in  miniature scale but even one  person's insane scribblings of  7  'six million is not enough',  should cause us all to rejx>nt-  emplate the horror of the world  50years ago. ���������'*-,'  Around 1965, when the hippie trend had not yet swung, full  force toward peace and love but  which was being signalled,  nevertheless, by the' beginnings  of some sort of rebellion among  teenagers, iron crosses and  swastikas became fashionable  for a while. ^  In small town Windsor Mills,  Quebec, people frowned when  they saw these symbols hanging  as jewellery around the necks of  those who were obviously much  too young to have been 'in the  war' - the war that was still  much too fresh to be relegated  to 'remember when'stories.  Many people in the town, as  in elsewhere, wore their scars of  that war upfront, forbidding  anyone to forget how these  wounds were acquired.  Mr. Robinson, for example,  tall and very stooped, shuffled  as he walked because he had  been captured by the Japanese  in Hong Kong and had been  placed, as a prisoner, in a small  anniversary  box for over a year.  There were several men who  had been blinded and there was  yet another whose face had been  split by a bullet. Repaired, his  cheeks were pulled into a  perpetual grin even when he  cried.  And there was Mrs. Beekers.  She was young and pretty and  she had a tattoo of a series of  numbers on her upper arm and,  like the old Jewish woman in  Richmond, she cried when she  saw a swastika.  She had never been a soldier  and was a child of 11 when she  was shipped from her home in  the Ukraine to a concentration  camp.  No child in Windsor Mills,  safe and petted, who ever  bothered to ask her where the  numbers came from or why she  so often cried, ever failed to  understand or to forget the true  horrors of war.  Mrs. Beekers' story began  when she left her home in her  village one morning to attend  the local school for the day. At  noon the German troops moved  in and she was rounded up and  on a freight train headed for a  concentration camp by evening.  It was all very efficiently done,  she remembers, and She never  saw her family again i  In among the times of intense  pain, humiliation and terror of  her years in the camps and as a  victim of medical experiments,  Mrs. Beekers chooses to  remember, instead, the kindness  of the people who, in their own  misery, risked their lives to save  her's. And there were many, she  says, Jews and Germans alike.  Mrs. Beekers' personal  memory of the war wreaked  havoc in her life many years  after the fact but she always was  and she remains the town's  kindest and most generous person. She pre-judges no one.  Her lesson as a victim of  racism and bigotry and of war,  as well as those of other's who  experienced World War II, is':  one we should never forget and  her example of rising above the  dregs of human behaviour is  one we should attempt (to  emulate even 50 years after the  fact and so far from any obvious battlefields.  _����___  Your community's  AWARD-WINNING  newspaper m^-si.: *-< ,.^;-~,.v-.-  Coast News, September^ 1989  3.

Jakob Knaus  v APEC Director reporting on  Education  Harold Long Esq.  MLA for Mackenzie  Social Credit Caucus  Parliament/.Building, Victoria  Dear Harold:  French News on Channel 27  We wish to draw your attention to the following fact and  ask you to make representation  on our behalf with the responsible authorities in Victoria.  We have noticed that during  prime newstime at 22:00 hour  on Channel 27, CBC newschan-  nel, the news is read in French  with English sub-titles displayed  on the screen. In our opinion  this is sheer provocation of  Enghsh speaking Canadians in  British Columbia.  We have learned that the  French Quebecois have refused  a French 24 hour CBC  newschannel, the reason being  that it is far too expensive for  the mere six million French  speaking Canadians. For the  French Canadians in British  Columbia there is a separate  =French Channel, in our area  channel 26. Therefore, we fail  to see that our English  newschannel 27 has to be contaminated with this French provocation.  We were not asked whether  we wanted CBC newschannel  27, we are simply being billed  monthly for it, regardless  whether we view it or not.  Therefore, if we have to pay for  it, we have a right not to be pro-  yoked every day when we view  it by this French 'presentation'.  If you require further information, please do not hesitate  to ask us for same.  Jakob Knaus  APEC Director reporting  on Education  Forest Minister seen 'preposterous  Editor:  . "One of the best ways to get  economic chaos in North  America is to stymie development," Forest Minister Dave  Parker told a radio reporter this  weekend. "One of the best ways  to stymie development is to get  an environmental preservationist movement going."  (Globe and Mail, 15/08/1989)  Preposterous! The forest  resources in this province are  being pillaged by the myopic  greed of the forest industry.  They could be maximizing the  'value-added' component of  manufacturing to increase the  worth of our trees. But they are  choosing short term gain at long  term expense.

(Victoria  Times-Colonist, 03/05/89)  The specialty wood industry  accounts for only 15 per cent of  the province's finished wood  production according to a 1988  federal-provincial study.  Under this Industrial De-.  velopment. Subsidiary Agreement it was noted the BC  lumber industry could add more  than $1.7 billion to its revenues  by producing more specialty  wood products.  MacMillan Bloedel's net earnings for the first six months of  1989 were $135.2 million,  $178.8 million the year before.  Is this money staying in BC to  prevent 'economic chaos' Mr.  Parker?  Mac-Bio's multi-national  parent, Noranda Forest of  Canada recently tried to build a  $1 billion pulp mill in  Tasmania.  On July 11, Mac-Bio announced it will build a $74  million US parallel strand plant  in Minnesota. They are already  building a second plant in  Georgia.

Jim Pine  Victoria  Pioneer royalty  Editor:  If pioneers were royalty, the  Higgs family would be dominant on the list and one,  William York Higgs, would star  in the night sky.  This world traveler truly mixed business with pleasure as he  covered marine survey inspections at various global points  and was first to establish a ferry  between Nanaimo and Gabriola  Island a long, long time ago.  The closest he came to royalty is in his name William York  Higgs which he was given by his  parent in memory of the Duke  of York's visit to Victoria at the  turn of the century.  Dick Kennett  Ms Collins vs. Mr. McDowell  Editor:  Mr. McDowell was false  when he quoted Mrs. Collins  (The Press, August 29). A slight  inaccuracy in quotation would  be rectified by changing 'live  outside the town' to 'work off  the Coast'.  Perhaps people who earn  wages off the Coast but spend  them on the Coast and have an  interest in the area in which they  live might be ;more willing to  run for public office if they  knew they didn't have to 'run  the gauntlet' for the 'right' to  have minutes of meetings (approximately two pages in  length) faxed to them (a cost of  approximately $2 per phone  call), none of which would be  a cost to the taxpayer. Alderman Collins (Ken) has asked  that the town fax him collect, at  his own expense.  This policy of nob allowing  government representatives access to information upon which  they will be required to make intelligent decisions and vote on  behalf of the townspeople is not  only discriminatory but unwise^  ., It is j . fpolhardy.i i*to_ ? not  welcome or at least listen ;to input from Alderman Collins who  not only acts in an r administrative capacity fprva corporation larger than the Town  of Gibsons, but who is also in  touch with a fully viable council  in Valdez, Alaska, whose travel  budget alone (for six aldermen  and one mayor) is $60,000.  In a council of four aldermen  and one mayor, each person  should be given opportunity to  speak whether absent or present; communications being  such nowadays that policy can  be. set" democratically within  seconds-;^linkingY points all  aroundrthe world'. -���  ���} Gibsons does not need to be  blind to this technology but to  use it j. especially when they  don't have to pay for it.  Arline Collins  Westlake of fers rebuttal  Editor:  David Winter's letter regarding abortion published August  21 in the Coast News sounded  slick but presented the public  with bad ethics, tired rhetoric  and plain misinformation.  The circumstances surrounding abortion are always unfortunate, not 'sometimes'. This,  however, is no support for his  statement that, "...no restricting law can be imposed over a  woman's personal choice  respecting abortion."  Of course one can. We once  had such a law; it worked to  restrict, the number of abortions  and we can have one again. We  have laws because we want to  uphold certain values in our  society. We have laws to protect  the innocent. Mr. Winter fails  even once to mention what is  being aborted: an innocent living human being.  Mr. Winter does not know  that statistically we now have  far more complications due to  abortion than ever occurred  before abortion was legalized.  The maternal death rate from  abortion dropped sharply in the  1940s and 1950s due to the introduction of antibiotics, not  due to legalization.  Doctors, not back street  amateurs, always did most of  the abortions, legal or not. As  the number of abortions increased over the past 25 years to  one in six Canadian babies conceived, the number of women  experiencing the short and long  term complications of having an  abortion also increased.  Even under controlled clinical  conditions induced abortion entails immediate risk of uterine  perforation, infection, hemorrhage, embolism and death.  Late complications include infertility, ectopic pregnancy,  miscarriage, placenta previa and  prematurity.  Abortion is only a 'medical'  procedure in so far as doctors  are the technicians who do  them. Any legitimate medical  procedure should have clear indications for which it may be  done and adequate proof that  the procedure is truly  therapeutic or beneficial to the  patient.  With abortion the medical  community has satisfied neither  of these criteria. The proper  scientific studies have not been  done and women having abortions today are guinea pigs, sub-  jecte4 to an unproven therapy.  Why should abortion be exempt  from'our scientific scrutiny?  Is abortion a, "...medically  required service...", as Shirley  Carr claims? Not when the  'disease' is predictably self  limited, lasting only nine months, give or take a few weeks.  Abortions done for reasons  of: true threat to the mother's  life,������ plus severe fetal abnormalities, plus pregnancy due to  rape or incest total less than 1  per cent of all abortions. The  other 99 per cent are done for  so-called psychiatric indications.  Are 65,000 women per year  in Canada so seriously mentally  ill, as well as pregnant? If so,  one would have to question the  wisdom of allowing us to vote,  let alone to, make a chpice involving life or death.  In fact, women seeking abortion were given the pseudo-  psychiatric label of 'reactive  depression' by their abortionists  as a sop to the therapeutic abortion committees once in existence, who could then rubber  stamp the application. If one  looks at these cases individually  one sees dilemmas and heartache, as well as perfectly normal first trimester ambivalence  about being pregnant,  flavoured by morning sickness  and fatigue.  The reasons women choose  abortion are social and/or  economic, not medical.������'���There  are no good medical reasons for  abortion except ectopic  pregnancy and invasive cancer  of the reproductive organs.  Physicians can do open heart  surgeiy on pregnant women and  save both patients, the mother  and her baby.  With abortion one of our patients, the unborn child, always  dies and that is bad medicine.  There are no psychiatric indications for abortion. The  more severe the psychiatric illness the greater the likelihood  that having an abortion will  worsen the condition.  When a woman comes to me  with an unexpected pregnancy I  can offer her help to proceed to  one of two positive conclusions:  a baby to care for, or a baby to  share with others. Those recommending abortion can only offer her a dead baby.

Coast News, September 4,1989  For restructuring  by Ellen Frith  The latest word from the  Ministry of Municipal Affairs  on the issue of the proposed  restructuring of the Town of  Gibsons with Areas E and F, is:  "There continues to be ongoing  discussion so October 7 as a  referendum date is slipped."  The issue was on the provincial cabinet's August 30 agenda,  a fact the executive assistant to  Minister of Municipal Affairs  Rita Johnston, told the Coast  News was not supposed to have  been made public.  It was the executive assistant  who said the referendum date  was "slipped" and she added  that there "will not be any  movement" on the issue until  further discussions take place.  The minister, herself, was not in  Victoria on Friday and was  unavailable for comment.  The anxiously awaited decision from Victoria not only included whether or not the Oc  tober 7 date was suitable for a  referendum on restructuring,  but also if the vote could be  tabulated separately. The town  also wants confirmation of the  grant monies promised for the  restructuring study etc., some of  which has already been spent.  At the August 26 Restructuring Advisory Committee (RAC)  meeting, Gibsons Clerk Administrator Lorraine Goddard  told those present the issue was  to be on the cabinet agenda on  August 30 and that only if the  town received an immediate  response (before September 1)  could the voting procedures for  an October 7 referendum be put  into motion.  Town Planner Rob Buchan,  who was filling in for Goddard  this week while 'she went oh"  noliday, told the Coast News on  Friday that the town was in  hourly contact with Victoria  hoping to hear what the decision from the minister was.

The minister's office told the  Coast News a letter had been  sent to Mayor Diane Strom  dated August 23 and that it had  informed her of possible delays;  That letter has.not yet come  before council as it was late in  arriving in Gibsons but it will be  presented at this Tuesday's  council meeting, Alderman  John Reynolds told the Coast  News and he stressed the contents of the letter could not be  made public before then.  "Nothing is going to happen  before Tuesday," he said.  RAC Chairman Malcolm  Fraser felt the possible change  , from an October 7 voting date  to one later in the year would  most inconvenience the people  who lived off the Coast but who  owned property here and were  eligible to vote.  "I don't know what games  are being played if they are, in  fact, games," he told the Coast  News. "It seems it always takes  three months for Victoria to  make a decision on anything  which is another good reason  not to have things done through  Victoria." ���  Fraser is a proponent of local  control which he stressed is the  most positive aspect of restructuring.  The RAC will continue with  its Saturday meetings and with  its information table between 11  am and 4 pm at Sunnycrest Mall  until further notice.

"Yes, we leave with mixed  feelings," said the Reids," and  one of these is sadness. Not  since either of us was a child  have we lived in one place for  more than four years. Now  after over eight years here on  the Coast, we leave so many  friends. But we take warm and  rich memories with us."  "Because of our children and  their families, a daughter in Victoria and a son in Burnaby, we  chose to come west at that time  to live. Consequently we came  here to this pastoral charge on  the Sunshine Coast.  "When this coming year in  Burnaby is completed, it will be  time for me, after 49 years, to  retire from the ministry. Victoria looks like a good place to  retire to."  Molly Whitelaw Reid, who  has a Bachelor of Fine Arts  degree from Mount Allison  University in Sackville, New  Brunswick, and who has studied  with Lawren Harris, Jr., and  REV. ALEX REID  the noted Alex Colville, will be  greatly missed by her students  here on the Coast; students who  have flourished chiefly in water;  colours, under her tutelage.  Alex Reid graduated, a  Bachelor of Arts, in 1947, a  year before Molly gained her  degree, and in the same university. In 1950 he graduated in  Theology in Pine Hill Hall in  Halifax.  While in the Canadian  Forces, Alex continued studies  from time to time in such  diverse fields as Instructional  Techniques and Senior Management. In theology he undertook  training in narrative preaching  and studies in Christian ethics,  particularly bioethics which  delves   into   ethical   problems  ^Cl/ldl/lJ?

Following1 his ordination in  1950, Alex served pastoral  charges in New Brunswick until  1955 during which time he was  also chaplain to two militia  units. .  In the regular forces he has  served as chaplain to the PPCLI  (The Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry), the Canadian Guards, Air Command  and with NATO in Germany.  And there was a year,  1962-63, in the United Nations  Peacekeeping Force in the Congo. One of his decorations is the  Canadian Forces Decoration  (CD) for continued exemplary  service.  He continued his Canadian  Legion association here as  padre to Branch 109, Gibsons.  "We'll miss him," said Larry  Boyd, the branch president,  "but we expect him back for the  Remembrance Day Service this  fall."  "One of my cherished  mementos of Gibsons," Alex  said, "is a gift of a book from  the ilate Fred Cruice's library,  given me by his wife Dorothy.  It's a history of the famous  unit, the PPCLI.  "I was a member of Air  Cadets in 1942-43, and when I  came to Gibsons I served gladly  as their padre."  Jean Mainil said, "We are  grateful for Molly for the logo  she designed for the letterhead  for our two churches. The stained glass window in St. John's is  her work, and in Gibsons she  designed the altar cloth and the  cover of the historic roll."  At the farewell the cake was  inscribed with her logo - the  mountains, sea, eagle and  salmon.

Special thanks to Jim Brown  who organized and ran the races  for young and old. Jim thinks  up such a hilarious variety of  races. We laugh and enjoy  whether participating or watching.  Roy Nygren and friend  Chuck had some of us playing  horseshoes. They are experts  and were most kind to us beginners.  Bill LeNeve, president of the  community association brought  the corn from the Fraser Valley.  Bill's wife, Sue, looked after  cooking the corn which we all  enjoyed dripping with butter.  Sue also made small hot dog  buns and served them with tiny  cocktail sausages free to all the  children.  Vic Franske, wife Kay, and  Roy Nygren were pioneers who  attended the picnic. Roy goes  right back to helping clear the  property known as Whitaker  Park.  ^DREAM shoppe  Bayside Building, Sechelt      885-1965  Gifts Galore  Stained Glass - Pottery - Weaving  Turner Berry and Ed Cuylits  were around when the hall was  built.

SCHOOL'S IN  Watch for children walking  on the roads or waiting for the  school bus. Most of them are  excited and,may not be paying  attention. ,  Be a responsible driver and  use caution.  STOP SIGNS  The other side of the stop  sign controversy was presented  to me by residents around the  new signs on Bay Road at  Laurel.  In order to decrease the speed  of those wishing to avoid the  speed traps set up on Highway  101, the RCMP and highways  department decided stop signs  would help.  The Sechelt RCMP are very  short-staffed at the moment.  Without the manpower they  cannot watch all corners at all  times, y; y'./- :'��":';:"'^  It was also pointed out the  District of Sechelt did a very  good job of clearing and sanding Bay Road during last  winter's snowfalls.  Hopefully it will help cut  down on the accidents ;at that  corner. ?  THANK YOU  Thanks to ail those who take  the time to correct me; let me  know birthdays,; anniversaries,  family reunions or wildlife  behaviours as well as coming  events. Your calls are appreciated.  GAS DOCK  It has come to my attention  that there is no gas dock in Porpoise Bay. The reasoning is that  it is very dangerous.  Well, having to fill the gas  tanks on the larger boats, one  jerry can at a time is far more  dangerous in my way of thinking. .Let's :g$t, into; step with the  times!  How can you hope to encourage tourist traffic by boat  in our beautiful inlets when the  only place to gas up is Egmont?  l   Jane Theriault, ba, rmt.

Halfnioon Bay Happenings  em' Bus a loss  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  A group of senior citizens  who regularly use the shoppers'  bus every Thursday are most  upset to learn that the service is  being withdrawn.  George Hopkins has served  the Redrooffs community well  for several years and the shoppers' bus has become a way of  life for many who do not drive  and who depend on the Thursday bus. George is removing the  service in order that the  Paratransit bus may be supported on its Redrooffs runs.  The Paratransit bus schedule  is on Mondays and  Wednesdays, but it is on  Thursdays that the people like  to make the Sechelt trip, the  main reason being that Thursday is seniors discount day at  several stores and hairdressing  establishments.  Another reason for the protest is that the time which must  be spent in Sechelt is too long  for most passengers. Pickup  time is 9 am from Redrooffs  and the return time is 3 pm  from Sechelt, which makes for a  six hour trip, two^burs hiote  than the present schedule.  It has beiT 8&g0L4;$&;  solution to the problem lies with  Paratransit who could change  the schedule to suit the  residents' needs.  I understand that at this time  there are meetings underway, so  , the problem might well be solved soon. Let's hope so.  BRIDGE ANYONE?  The Welcome Beach Community Association on  Redrooffs Road are hoping to  have good response to its latest  community effort, which is  afternoons of bridge at the hall.  Starting date will be Friday  September 22, and if response is  sufficient will continue on the  first and third Fridays of each  month throughout the winter  months.  Everyone will be made  welcome and tea and coffee will  be served. Also worthy of note  is the fact that the hall is accessible for wheelchairs at the rear of  the building.

"During their last visit,  business - proposals under  discussion for the Sechelt area,  include a mobile coffee service,  a commercial greenhouse and a  salal export operation," said  Mackenzie MLA Harold Long.

Regional Development Minister Elwood Veitch, who is  also Minister of State for the  Mainland/Southwest  region,  said information from the  counsellors about government  assistance for businesses includes the Ministry's Regional  Seed Capital Loan Guarantee  Program which encourages  banks, credit unions and trust  companies to make higher risk  loans to small businesses and  entrepreneurs.

I wonder  which one?  In case you missed the banner  which so quickly came and went  across Madeira Park Road, the  ball (vvith a baron of beef dinner  and music by Slim and the  Pickups) is coming up soon,  September 16, at the community hall, and tickets are now on  sale for $15 each.

Verity's plant magic  When I was 'doing time' in San  Quentin Prison  I spent 18 months among the  condemned boys and men...  I acted as secretary, social companion and, if you will, father  confessor.  Herbert Emerson Wilson,  Vancouver Sun,  January 15, 1953  Herb Wilson settles into his  new quarters with feelings that  can only be described as mixed.  He is heartily relieved to be off  the prison's main line andfisafe  from the clutches of his ill-  wishers, but he is bound to admit that these precincts of the  doomed are singularly op-  presiyg.^.,.,,^,,,,.^.,.,...  He cannot Kelp but wonder  about the previous tenants of  the gloomy cell to which he has  been assigned. What desperate  thoughts did they have on those  last grey dawns before the  chaplain came, the warden and  his death squad close behind?  Herb will brood over these  unpleasant conjectures many  times in months to come.  ' SdP* ^  Verity Purdy has been an artist all her life - a classical  dancer, an interior designer, an  actress, painter and teacher of  quitation. Her talents know no  boundaries.  Now Verity focuses on an old  love...'Bringing the Outside In'.  She creates wonderful wild  plant and flower arrangements  and will be teaching a two-day  course on the fine points of her  art at Rockwood Centre this  month.  She attributes her talent to  her mother who constantly produced beautiful plant arrangements with raw materials  picked from the 'wilderness' or,  in a sense, out of nothing.  Nothing was bought, nothing  was cultivated. The only limitation was imagination.  Verity works in both grand  and delicate scales, tailoring her  creations to specific occasions  and seasons. Versatility is essential if one is to make the most of  what nature happens to be offering that particular month.  The classes will be. heldly^  By emphasizing the use of        Rockwood Centre on SeptenP  . wUd: an<L > imiigeM^ rt  flowers,   foliage  and grasses, , U2:3apm^d-wU-cost-$5&-  Verity has truly refined her art.  ��� One of her many secrets.ris  contained in the visiiM approach to the arrangement ."One  must visualize the creation in an  abstract and graphic manner,  using the wild plants in masses  or clumps,   '  For those of you who wish to  acquire the full fruit of Verity's  talent and skill, you may enroll  in her two-day program being  offered at the Rockwood Centre  this September.

Murderer's Row, in  common with the. rest of San  Quentin, has a surfeit of  tenants. The unit contains 10  cells and 16 prisoners - more  than have been-confined there  at any one time before in the  prison's: long history. Several  men have forced to double up  with Herb but, to his relief, has  no cellmate at present.  Only rarely are the condemned men, under heavy guard,  allowed to leave their prison-  within-a-piison to attend certain  sporting events. The rest of the  time they are quarantined here.  jThere is much Facing, constant,  talk of unlikely reprieves.rand,  in the face of the unthinkable,  occasional bitter laughter.  Herb continues with his self-  improvement program, devouring one book after another. In  the grim environment of  Murderer's Row he beginfrto set  his thoughts and observations  down on paper. His writing will  become an ongoing activity  down the long years to freedom  and will result in a formidable  body of work. Unfortunately,  this vast output will be marred  from start to finish by a verbose  pomposity he will never manage  to overcome.  '���"*'' -'H  The trusty who sejrvices  Murderer's Row, delivering the  meals and picking up empty  trays and full slop buckets, is a  curious individual named Jim  McNamara. Twenty Jyears  before he had been convicted of  planting a bomb at the Los  Angeles Times offices, the  resultant explosion of which  had killed almost two dozen  people. It was a demented act of  revenge for some imagined  slight. Only an inspired defence  by the redoubtable Clarence  Darrow had saved him from the  death penalty.  Jail has not treated McNamara kindly.

It wasfeasy to forget, as he  strained and lifted with the best  of them, that he had any particular talent at all until, with  the piano finally on stage, he  threw back the cover and played  "a few bars".  Suddenly, the piano, a heavy  awkward   shaped   thing,   was  transformed  into a thing  of  grace   and   the   little   theatre  brightened. Kuerti, in his grub-  i! by dress and with disheveled  :" hair, performed magic in those  few seconds.  It is conceivable, Arts Coun-  :X jcil Director Allan Crane told the  YCoast  News that the piano,  j made; iri Hamburg, Germany,  ;may be bought by the com-  Yjmunity and placed in a specially  'renovated room at the back of  the Twilight Theatre for use in  concerts, for practice by advance/students or those taking  music exams and in the teaching  ofirriaster-level classes.

The rest  could conceivably be raised by  combining the funds of the Arts  Council with those of the  Musical Festival Committee.

Where could we go where we could escape for an  hour? One of the 'girls', the only guy in the group, suggested  the 'Mediterranean'. Ha Ha! Hey, that's not a bad idea. Let's  go to the Omega Restaurant.  Once inside we all jockeyed for a window seat overlooking  the marina. Next problem...how do you satisfy five different,  appetites...large and small? v  The pleasant service began by the waitress going out of heir-  way to set up the extra settings and chairs. Our waitress,  Carol* listened to our chattering while we were choosing our  selections. ��� '   ,.  Let's see, nachos with mozzarella cheese and salsa sauce;,  tzanziki with pita bread; kalamari (squid) with tzanziki;  homus with pita bread; Greek Special - a pizza with mozzarella, fresh tomatoes, onions, mushrooms and tomato  sauce, and to top it off two caesar salads. Were we going too,  fast for her? Yes...she was still writing down k-a-1-a-m-a-r-i...  There was .such a bounty of selections to choose from, it  was hard not to get carried away. Would seven selections  satisfy five people? >  While waiting for our food to arrive we all enjoyed the view  and conversation triggered by^our surroundings.:;    ; >{  Before we knew it our food arrived and arrived, putting an  end to our conversation and yes, seven selections would be  enough!  The kalamari, which this .writer had never tasted before, ;.  was a delightful new experience and I was in total agreement  with the rest of the party who had partaken of the delicacy  before.  The tzanziki, and the homus served with warmed pita bread  made an excellent companion to the lightly battered kalamari.  The nachos smothered with mozzarella cheese, served with  salsa sauce and sour cream on the side was a welcome surprise. .:.  Our Greek pizza consisting of mozzarella cheese, fresh  tomatoes, onions, mushrooms and tomato sauce brought  raves from everyone, including the non-pizza eater.  Last but not least, the caesar salads, (for caesar salad :?  lovers), will be one not to forget.  We were reluctant to leave and our short visit to the Omega  Restaurant made the rest of the day more palatable.  It was worth coming for the view alone but that coupled  with the interesting food left a lasting impression.  Andy's Restaiiriinf-Every Wednes-  : day night is Prime Rib Night.

Pentland-Smith was reluctant  to talk about individual Chinese  friends for fear of putting them  in jeopardy. "If anyone came to  visit me in my room they had to  sign in with the man at the door,  say why they were there and  give their times of arriving and  leaving. I knew there were one  or two who were afraid to visit  at all because they did not want  it known that they were friendly  with a foreigner."  Yet she found that people  were remarkably friendly.  Many times people she spoke to  in the streets took her home to  /lunch, "where they always took  ^abpur200pictures." .  '"'"Public 'displays bfr affection  . were commonplace. It was not  unusual to see men, even  soldiers, walking hand in hand,  and women would unaffectedly  walk with their arms around  each other.  She found there was a general  tone of hopelessness and  depression among the intellectuals in China. "We have lots of  problems here," she said, "and  some people have terrible things  happen to them. But you always  think something can be done  about it.  "There the problems are so  great - the poverty, the  crowding, the corruption, the  lack of freedom. You just know  there is nothing - especially as a  foreigner - nothing you can do  about it.  "They all want to get away  but they can't. And they have  very little hope of changing  anything. It leads to this feeling  of helplessness for so many of  them."  Pentland-Smith became ill  and had to leave before her year  was over. A week after she got  back, the Beijing massacre happened.  "I knew there were going to  be demonstrations," she said,  "but the violence was so unexpected. It's appalling. I was  devastated. It's put everything  back so far."  Asked if she would go back  she said, "I don't think I could,  The trust would be gone. I  always felt safe before. I don't  think I could. It will be interesting to see what happens.  "But I didn't come back on  China Airlines. It cost me  money because I had a return  ticket. I came back with Canadian Pacific Airlines,"  by Ed Hill  The curling rink in Gibsons  has four sheets of ice. It accommodates 32 curlers at a time.' An  eight end game takes two hours  to play and usually two draws  are scheduled in one evening.  The first draw usually takes  place at 7 pm and the second  draw starts at 9 pm. After their  game, curlers can take a break  and watch the next scheduled  games from the lounge upstairs.  Teams often take this tiirie to  socialize and celebrate their win  or commiserate over their loss.  Many curlers play the other  teams games from the safety of  the lounge. It is safe to say that  a rock has never been, played  wrong by the spectators iri the  lounge. . Yl  The length of a sheet;from  backboard to backboard is 146  feet or 44.5 metres. The width  of a sheet is 14 feet two inches  or 4.418 metres. At each end of  the sheet there is a back line, a  tee line which goes through the  centre of the circles and a hog  line.  A rock must cross the hog  line before it comes into play. A  rock which does not cross the  hog line is removed from play.  Although the length of a curling  sheet seems a, long way, even  kids in Grade 5 or 6 at trie  elementary school are able to  throw the rock from one end of  the sheet to the other end.  Both the junior leagues and  the Friday night fun league have  kids of this age enjoying the  game.  If you feel you would like to  enroll your kids in the junior  program you could contact  Carol Skytte at 886-7801. I am  sure she would love to enroll  your child in the juniors program. She is a very good coach  with some very good helpers  and she has an excellent program going. The kids really enjoy it.  If you would" like to participate in the' duty feel fffeefto  contact * brie-'bf" the club  members. Some members you  might contact are Ed Hill at  886-3925, Larry Penonzek at  886-9134 or club president,  Doreen Stewart at 886-7891.  Any one of these members  would be very pleased to ensure  you are signed up for the fall  leagues.  Gibsons  hires new  supt.  Gibsons Council has settled  on a man.for the position of  public works supervisor from a  short list of three people.  Wilbert Fair, coming from Fer-  nie BC will take on the job on  October 10.  Fifty-two year old Fair is  leaving a similar position with  Fernie where he has been the  public works supervisor for the  past five years. Prior to that he  was employed by Parksville.  In the interim, council has retained the services of Ozzie  Gjerdalen, a retired public  works supervisor from North  Vancouver. Staff at Gibsons  town hall became aware of  Gjerdalen when he began helping out a friend, who owns property on the Bluff, lay in a  sewer extension on his property.  Gjerdalen will be working  two days a week until Wilbert.  Fair arrives.  Alderman Lilian Kunstler  was part of the interview committee and stated, "I feel that  Mr. Fair will fit in very well."  Council unanimously agreed  on the appointment.  AUSTIN GENERAL  CONTRACTING LTD.

Up and down the Sunshine  Coast today, children are once  more heading out the door to  their first day of the new school  year. Prelinlinary statistics indicate a steady increase in student numbers throughout the  school district.  At Cedar Grove Elementary,  274 students are already  registered, an increase of 12  over last year. That school will  be welcoming two additions to  the teaching staff as well: Mrs.  Susan Budgell and Laureen  McNaughton.  So far, the increase at Davis  Bay is minor, with six addi  tional students registered over  last year's total at this time of  122. Lucinda Graff will be added to the teachers' roster for  \ Davis Bay as well as Gibsons  ; Elementary, dividing her time  : between the two schools.  ;    Cynthia Norman and Robert  Paish are also new faces at Gibsons Elementary, where the stu-  _, dent population is jumping by  - 42, with more registrants anticipated in the first few weeks.  That school would now appear to have the highest student  population   between   kindergarten and Grade 7 on the Sunshine Coast, with 393 children  registered prior to the first day.

This year, the new school will  house students through to  Grade 7.  So far 98 students are expected. Linda Smith, Suzanne  Bolivar and Karin Tigert are added to the teaching staff, with  Tigert splitting her time between  Halfmoon Bay and Sechelt.  Both Madeira Park and  Sechelt Elementary Schools are  also seeing a big increase in  population with Madeira Park  up 21 and Sechelt up 26 over  last year's September totals of  186 and 357 respectively.  Deborah Allain, Julie Bishop  and Joe Chell will be joining the  staff at Sechelt this year, and  Johanne Taschereva will be  handling the program cadre.  West Sechelt is the only  school in the district to start the  school year with less registrants  than last year, with 189 students  registered as opposed to last  year's 191. New members of the  staff at West Sechelt will include  Denis Newton, Margaret Scott'^  and Janice Branson, who willy^  share her time with Roberts^  Creek Elementary.  Roberts Creek school is stay;  3  ing steady, with an increase of  only one student expected on "\  the first day. The kindergarten J  class is down to 30 from last j  year's 47 and Grade 1 through 7 j;  have 233 registered, 18 more ;.'  than last year. Bonnie Paish will /  be a new face in the staff room *  this year.  According to School District \.  46, there is usually an increase j  of approximately five students i  in each school during the first {  week, as new registrations come /  in.   The   senior   secondary ^  schools appear to be maintain^ ^  ing   a -fairly   steady   stude&t^?  population. Exact figures were^  not available at press time.        |  All principals in the district j  will be in the same schools as {  last year. Other additions to the |*j  teaching staff throughout the -J  area include: Enid Goodman  and    Brian    Mutimer;   at;J  Chatelech; Wanda Jullien, Gleh^3  MacPherson and Jude Renaud  at Elphinstone; Diane Gough at |  Pender  Harbour   and   Nancy *  Brindley. YY   \  Tourist Centre  An informal poll conducted by the Sechelt Travel InfoCentre shows that the "most average" visitor to the Sunshine  Coast drove here in their private car with the intention of  relaxing and touring.  During their stay (three nights in a motel or with friends),  they did some hiking, salt-water fishing or boating, these being the most popular outdoor activities with visitors.  Also, the Sunshine Coast was the main destination for  most visitors, many of whom were returning for another visit.  Visitors to the Coast said they liked the friendliness of the  residents best, followed by the service offered by the Travel  InfoCentres.  Although the sampling was small, this survey does give  some indication of the type of visitor attracted to our  beautiful Coast and what they like to do when they get here.  t  2  s  *4  i  ^"DEPENDABLE  So its back to school^ for Gregory Neilson* but, before he can  enter the Grade 2 classroom he must carrjrwith him every item on  This is no easy feat because he  , ���Kent Sheridan photo  y&jin/A.  his mothers' back-to-school listo;  probably heeds two of everythii |;  &:<  "%��yii  MISC SERVICES  MISC SERVICES  5032 CHESTER STREET  VANCOUVER, B.C.

'  August 12, Tills 1 am,  firefighters were alerted by a  report of an automobile on fire  at the Sunnycrest Mall. Upon  arrival it was discovered that the  RCMP had extinguished the fire  and a crew and pumper remained to wash off the road.;  y August 12, 7:36 pm, trucks  responded to a call for medical  aid in the Gower Point area.  f August 20, 1:08 pm,  members attended a fire on a  boat at the Government Wharf  in Gibsons. The fire had been  extinguished when the crew arrived and Gibsons firefighters  assisted in the cleanup.  August 22, 12:34 am, one of  the most frightening scenarios  for the Gibsons firefighters is a  fire at one of the marinas in  Gibsons.  Because of the large volumes  of fuel stored near the gas"  floats, a fire could be  devastating. A quick response  was given to a call to a fire on a.  boat tied to the Alibi Wahoo at  Hyak Marina.  One firefighter was injural  anci'"taken* to Hospital fighting  the stubborn blaze which  destroyed one boat and caused  some damage to another.       -p.  Cause of the fire is under in:  vestigation.  Because of the rain during the  last week, the ban on outdoor  (burning has been lifted for the  'time being.

It runs on propane.  Propane, considerably kinder  to the environment than regular  gasoline, occurs in nature in  natural gas and, in a dissolved  form, in crude oil. It is also a  by-product of petroleum refining and, for propelling vehicles  around this Coast, comparatively cheap.      ?|  "We're saving half the fuel  costs by using propane," Terry  Giannakos said.

He was instrumental in converting the Gibsons Bus from  regular leaded gasoline to propane and was able to do much  of the needed work on the vehicle himself..  "I really studied the advantages and disadvantages," he  said, and his conclusion was:  "Propane is much better."  The basic change-over from  regular gasoline to propane,  Hauka says, involves a new carburetor and regulator, as well as  the installation of a vacuum  shut-off valve and other safety  features.  "There are quite a few safety  devices on the bus," he says,  "and so the propane is very  safe. It's safer than gasoline."  As for the availability of propane: "It is very available on  the Coast," Hauka says, "but  they've only just started pushing  it now."  The   price   varies,   but   on  average* the Gibsons bus pays  approximately 26 V_ cents a litre  for propane and Hauka says he  has paid as low as 18 cents a  litre.  YThe actual money saved in  fuel costs was a factor in converting one of their two buses to  propane, Giannakos says, but  that wasn't the only reason.  "Let me put it this way," he  said. "If we could have saved  half the money by using  aerosol, for example, we  wouldn't have done it!"  As soon as funds are  available, Giannakos and  Hauka hope to be able to convert the other 24-seat bus to  propane.  Hauka suggested the provincial government should be encouraged to help private  business such as theirs towards  full conversion to environmentally safe fuels.  "All we need is a little subsidy," he said.  Frank Biggar, one of the drivers of the propane fuelled Gibsons  Bus, awaits the 12:25 pm ferry at Langdale terminal to take on off  loading passengers.

Department of Fisheries, and  Y Oceans complex was completed  under budget and was occupied  by fisheries tenants on August  25, a week ahead of the planned  completion date.  The building, part of one of  five similar complexes currently  under construction in the province, includes modern offices,  a laboratory, meeting room,  radio room, showers, locker  rooms for diving gear and an 18  foot high warehouse.  The property includes a 4500  foot fenced outdoor storage  compound, landscape park and  spawning creek for Coho  salmon and trout. Coho fry  have already been found in the  creek by the fisheries officer and  trees will be planted over it so  that fallen leaves will provide  nutrients for the young salmon  and trout.  When work is complete on  the park area, it will include picnic tables and a cedar-roofed  billboard kiosk displaying  general information and maps,  and the upper, banked area will  be seeded with wallflowers and  clover. Other areas will be  planted naturally with aider and  salmonberries.  Although Larry Curtiss has  suggested the area be called  "Madeira Park Park," an official name hasn't yet been  chosen.  The Legion has already  started landscaping its property  adjacent to the fisheries complex, and Chamber of Commerce representatives will at  tend the next Area Planning  Committee meeting in Madeira  Park to inquire about  stree'tlights and; sidewalks promised for the'area last spring.^  Mrs. Ray Kraft, Jane^Reid;  and Malcolm Duncan promoted  the idea, of getting the complex  located in Madeira Park.  "They really sparkplugged  things and were in_tfumehtal in  getting the complex here."

Coast News, September 4,1989  Y  by Ellen Frith  Guess Where  ��.<_���%*.'  In spite of the nation's attention being firmly focused last  week on the handling and  storage of controversial PCB  waste in Quebec, an application  to the provincial Waste  Management Branch by Construction Aggregates for permission to move and then store  old electrical capacitors containing PCB fluid from a site near  Port Mellon to storage facilities  in Colwood near Victoria, did  not go unnoticed. Colwood  doesn't want the stuff, local  news stories cried.  According to Steve Roik,  Manager of Development for  Construction Aggregates, it's all  "a tempest in a teapot." The liquid in electrical capacitors in  question contain less than a  kilogram of PCBs, he told the  Coast News, and the strictest  provincial    and    federal  The usual prize of $5 will be awarded the first correct entry drawn  which locates the above.

At Kiwanis Care Home  More nursing problems  The nursing staff at Kiwanis  Village Care Home in Gibsons  do not anticipate strike action at  this time although a strike vote  was taken on August 25 was affirmative, a spokesperson for  the BC Nurses' Union told the  Coast News.  "We are still negotiating,"  she said.  A press release from the  BCNU on August 28 states:  "Their employers' stonewalling  at the bargaining table has  brought 46 members of the  BC Nurses' Union to the brink  of strike action at five long term  care facilities across the province."  At issue locally are first col  lective agreements with the 10  nurses working at the Kiwanis  Village Care Home.  The major common stumbling block, the BCNU feels, is  bringing nurses' wages and  benefits up to prevailing standards for BC long-term care  facilities.  The employers either reject  the concept outright or want to  delay its implementation," the  BCNU said.  The 46 nurses returned an  average 98 per cent strike mandate in votes conducted August  25 under Industrial Relations  Council (IRQ supervision. The  BC Federation of Labour had  granted exemptions from its  IRC boycott for these votes.  BCNU will consult with its  members before serving strike  notice at any location and if job  action occurs, the union will  assure the provision of essential  nursing services.  , Starting rates at the five  facilities involved average  $13.02 an hour with a high  salary of $13.87 being at the  Gibsons Kiwanis Village Care  Home.

Coast Cadets  are flourishing  by Captain Ron Biggs  In the spring of 1988, a group  of concerned parents and  citizens formed an association  to assist the 2963 Sunshine  Coast Army Cadets (Seaforth)  through financial, and other  means.  The name of the association  is the Support Association to  Sunshine Coast Army Cadets,  or SASCAC for short.  Many cadet corps look for  financial and other means of  support beyond the means of  the sponsor, in this case, Branch  140, Royal Canadian Legion,  Sechelt. The sponsors provide  basic support for the cadets but  there are other needs which they  are unable to supply for various  reasons.  The ultimate goal of the three  groups, sponsor, officers and  association, is to help our youth  to grow into fine, honest and  patriotic citizens of our country.  This association is now  registered under the British Columbia Societies Act and a  charter of incorporation was  granted on August 17, 1988.  The most important achievement since incorporation was to  obtain from the provincial  government, some 20 acres of  Crown Land near the Sechelt  airport. Y  This acreage will be used for  parades, exercises, search and  rescue operations, outdoor  camping, etc.  Upon final approval being  received, this land will- be- for   cadet use for 30 yearsat $l*a ������-*  year, nominal fee.  The support received from  the District of Sechelt, Sunshine  Coast Regional District and  Ministry of Lands has been very  encouraging in our long  deliberation. y  The association presently has  a membership of 35 and an  elected board of directions as  follows:  Doreen Pihichyn, President;  Major Bud MacLeod, Vice  President; Mary Marcroft,  Secretary; Grace Shearsmith,  Treasurer; and Peter Pihichyn,  Member-at-large.  Any interested persons who  wish to join this association or  who wish to donate in any way,  shape or form are asked to contact President Doreen Pihichyn  at 885-2379 or Secretary Mary  Marcroft at 886-7825.

Gibsons Council has set aside $125,000 to  upgrade Shaw Road.  Planner Rob Buchan stated  last week major upgrading was  obviously necessary but the  undertaking has been upgraded  since the advent of the Ocean-  mount subdivision which* he  suggests, will become "Y.the  number one subdivision oh the  Sunshine Coast."  Following close on Oceari-  mouht's heels, the developer^  are beginning the initial work1  on its exclusive sister 'Georgia  Mirage'. Both subdivisions contain high value units and  residents will be using Shaw  Road.  It had been anticipated that  money from the developers, added to funds budgeted by the  town, would pay for the repaving. However, the calculations  were done in 1988 and subsequent changes in the economic  situation on the Sunshine Coast  may have contributed to the  unexpected high costs cited in  the bids.  BA Blacktop offered to do  the job for $382,695 and  Capilano Highways bid  $342,630.  Buchan said the bids have  been referred to the town's  engineers, Dayton and KnigJht  who will go over themi and  make a recommendation to  council at this week's meeting.  guidelines are being followed  for their transportation and  storage.  "Most of the electrical equipment over 10 to 12 years old  probably contains these  liquids," he said.  According to Roik, the "out-  of-use electrical equipment" is  being moved out of Construction Aggregates' former Hillside  site because the land there has  recently been sold.  As soon as the company has  received approval of storage in  Colwood, he said, the  capacitors wilf be bundled in  plastic, then in 45 gallon steel  drums with absorbant material  surrounding them and then the  whole thing will be placed  within yet another steel container.  Chem-Security, hazardous  waster movers, who are the  "most experienced", Roik said,  will take charge of the operation  and the capacitors will be shipped to Vancouver Island on a  special "hazardous goods  ferry", Y  "The law requires|we store  the capacitors indefinitely,"  Roik said, "until the;province  can come to grips with hazardous waste."  This "minute quantity" of  PCBs, Roik said, will be moved  in full compliance with federal  regulations and guidelines and  stored as specified by the province.
