 For restructuring  Victoria sots  voting date  by Ellen Frith  Scene at the Fifth International Aquaculture Conference, at the        Arena in Sechelt last week. (See story below.)      ���Vera Elliott photo  At the Aquaculture Conference  Regulations and health the issues  by Rose Nicholson  The Fifth Sunshine Coast International Aquaculture Conference was held last week in  Sechelt.  The Honourable John Savage, Minister of^Agriculture  aridiFisheriesv iri" his speech to  delegates announced coming  government regulations on the  use i of antibiotics and other  chemicals in aquaculture operations.  Cultured fish products will be  required to meet specific  chemical residue tolerance levels  whjen they are offered for sale.  He; stressed that most of the industry has already developed  guidelines for this purpose.  A revised licensing  framework is designed to minimize  conflicts between aquaculturists  and the public, or the commercial fisheries.  Savage went on to say that in  July a joint program with the  Department of Fisheries and  Oceans was initiated to investigate the impact of  aquaculture on fisheries  resources.  Scientists; wjll;^alyze potenr  tiaT interactions "l^ween wUd  and domestic salmon populations; whether or not disease  transmission can occur; the  possibility of chemical and  bacterial contamination of  shellfish from fish farms; the  extent of predation of farmed  salmon on young wild salmon  and herring; how fish farms  may affect the prawn, shrimp  and crab fishery and much  more.  Savage also said his ministry,  in recognizing the need for a  research,   demonstration   and  training facility, has contracted  with the consulting firm of  George Hunter and Associates  of Vancouver to find a suitable  location for such a farm..  This year's conference theme,  'The Economic Viability of  Aquaculture in BC,ywas an apt  choice in view of recent reports  of financial difficulties faced by  some fish farmers and an attack  of algae bloom that hit local  farms a few days before' the  conference.  But figures provided by the  Ministry of Agriculture and  Fisheries show the number of  marine fish farms in BC has  doubled in the last three years  with salmon and trout production increased 15 times.  Total sales of all aquaculture  products, estimated at $6.3  million in  1986, reached $40  million in 1988, and an  estimated $91.8 million is expected in 1989.  Salmon sales account for 97  per   cent   of this   total  with  oysters,   clams,   mussels,  scallops, abalone and marine  rr   plants accounting for the re-  ^^"nammg three per cent;      ~  ''     Not reflected in these figures  is the value of the secondary industries; Sixty-four exhibitors at  the conference offered a comprehensive choice of goods and  services. Most of these were BC  businesses, and nine were from-  the Sunshine Coast.  Delegates to the conference  were offered a variety of panel  discussions which concerned  subjects like research,  marketing, finance, management, species selection and  feeding.  Word from the ministry of  municipal affairs has come  from Victoria and the referendum vote on the proposed  restructuring of the Town of  Gibsons with Areas E and F  slated for October 7 is a go  ahead. (The alleged deadline  date of September 1 was apparently of no significance. See  following story.)  In answering with a simple  yes or no, the question: "Are  you in favour of incorporation  of the Gibsons area as a district  municipality", eligible voters in  the relevant areas will decide, in  two polls, whether or not the  proposition goes through.  There will be two polling stations, one for residents of the  affected portions of Areas E  and F and one for the Town of  Gibsons. A 50 per cent plus one  majority is needed in each station for any decision.  The referendum affirmation  from the Minister of Municipal  Affairs Rita Johnston was  received in draft form by the  town on Friday. The original  "will be in our office by Monday," Gibsons Mayor Diane  Strom said.  In view of the referendum  date being confirmed, the six  members of the Restructuring  Advisory Committee (RAC)  present at the Saturday meeting  voted unanimously in favour of  two significant motions.  The committee moved that a  recommendation from the RAC  be made to the Restructuring  Standing Committee "that Gibsons Council make a declaration that it is its intention to  resign en masse and call an election forthwith in the event of a  positive restructuring vote",  and that the mandate of the  RAC be expanded to permit it  to promote restructuring as a  positive community development.  Most of the discussion  leading up to these motions was  carried on in camera.  "If the vote is not successful  the Town of Gibsons will be in a  state of strangulation," RAC  Chairman Malcolm Fraser said.  "It's a fairly important vote."  Fraser said he felt the committee had been "very laid back  about getting information out  but these next 30 days are  critical.  "I am appalled at the apparent lack of understanding to  date," he said.  In an effort to raise public  awareness and concern about  the issues, the committee decided to continue with its information table on Saturdays at Sunnycrest Mall in Gibsons and to  approachriGpaSt''-''Cable.

JOHN SAVAGE  Local log salvor John Marian  has been given high praise for  saving the Pender Harbour  gilnetter Ruby Ellen if not the  lives of its two occupants,  veteran Harbour fisherman  Louis Nichols and his wife  Ruby.  The 36 foot Ruby Ellen  started drifting ashore on the  Trail Islands in a stiff southeast  wind Wednesday afternoon  after its propeller became fouled  in its net.  Nichols sent out a radio  distress call and several other  fishboats rushed to the scene  but none wanted to approach  shore because they said they  feared their lives would be placed in danger. Nichols said he at  no time feared for his or his  wife's own life but did think he  was going to lose his boat,  which was pounding heavily on  a rock ledge.  Nichols' two sons Charles  and Bud were also fishing in the  southern straits and heard the  call. Charles started running up  from the Fraser River but was  well out of range. Bud was  closer, but lost his steering just  as he neared the scene and had  to remain anchored helplessly  offshore while he watched his  elderly parents struggle to hold  the Ruby Ellen clear of the  rocks with a pike pole.  Beachcomber Marian heard  the distress call from his nearby  home and quickly set out for the  scene, running his $80,000 tug  straight into the rocks and pull-  the Ruby Ellen clear of the  rocks with a pike pole  her keel and bruised several  planks but will be able to finish  the season.  The senior Nichols had the  highest praise for Marian, who  not only saved the rest of his  fishing season and a valuable  gilnetter, but refused to take  anything for his trouble.  ���Y  j.                                                                     ���"���'.'���'  Library vote upcoming  .P. 2  Lost park review.  .P. 4  Whitworth Chronicles P. 5  Police band visits  P. 15  Golf Club expansion P. 16  SCRD bulletin.

The Gibsons facility is one of five British Columbia  Nurses' Union bargaining units where nurses voted mid-  August overwhelmingly in favour of job action to achieve  first contracts.  Elphie lights  It will soon be possible to play rugby and soccer at night at  Elphinstone High School.  The high quality lights and posts have been donated to the  West Howe Sound Recreation Commission so the only costs  will be the installation, maintenance and power.  School District 46 has agreed to foot the bill for the power  used and the recreation commission voted to spend up to  $7000 on installation and to be responsible for maintenance.  Commission members stressed the facilities would not be  limited to school use but would be available to the public at  large.  \:  ft (?!(�����  Wilson proposes  zoning change  A by-law change to "get rid of the R3 zoning" and prevent  further sub-division of the Garden Bay Lake area was requested last week by Area A Director Gordon Wilson.  Garden Bay Lake, he said, was the water supply for  Garden Bay and its undeveloped areas should therefore be  protected as one side of the lake was already under development.' :'  Unless the R3 zoning was changed, Wilson said, "we'll  have trouble ad infinitum."  Chatelech  upgrading  "Loyalty-Excellence-Justice, our School Motto,"  Chatelech Principal Jack Pope told the Coast News, "is striving to create a bond between teachers, students, school and  community; a sense of ownership and a spirit of vitality.  "The idea to change the decorum in our gym came to me  about a year ago," he said. "The gymnasium is, in a sense,  the core of the school. The students spend a tremendous  amount of time in there and I wanted to have an atmosphere  of brightness that reflects our school's spirit.  "I got the go-ahead last May and immediately contacted  the Baggio family, Jack, Susan and their sons Aaron and  Jason, both of whom attend our school and asked them to  bring some life into our gym.  "The Baggio family donated its time and artistry. Aaron, a  Grade 12 student, designed the Eagle Head," Pope said.  The Baggios presented the conceptual drawings in July  leading to the graphic and layout designs which were then  worked closely on with the School District's painters. A week  before school started, the Baggio family was found working  on the Eagle Head which they finished at 1 am Saturday,  September 2.

On September 23 the residents of Areas E and F will  be asked to vote on a referendum which will allow them  to support the upkeep of Gibsons Library. It is the position of this newspaper that the rural area residents must  vote 'yes' on this question.  For far too many years the Sunshine Coast has  distinguished itself by being the most niggardly area in  the province when it comes to supporting its libraries.  Recently Sechelt has made some considerable strides  towards rectifying the situation but Gibsons Public  Library has continued to languish in the financial  doldrums.  The referendum on library support to be held on  September 23 is an acknowledgement by the Sunshine  Coast Regional Board that perhaps they have been  remiss in their financial support heretofore. The proposed ceiling of $50,000 per annum is appropriate, bringing the regional contribution into the mainstream of  per capita contibutions in the province.  Is is appropriate, also, in that the library records  show that two out of three members of the busy little  library are rural residents.  The referendum deserves rural support and we feel  confident this will be recognized by the voting public as  it has been by the politicians.  Vote 'yes' on the library referendum on September  23.  5 YEARS AGO  "We're being pushed by the people who want to build.  There are columns and columns of apartments for rent  at $300 a month, clean and stiil no takers." With this  statement, Gibsons Alderman Bill Edney made his point  clear. There is no shortage of low income housing in  Gibsons.  Sechelt Council has decided both to opt out of the  regional planning fuction and to proceed with investigating possibilities for a downtown revitilization  program.  Incumbent MP Ray Skelly of the NDP held his seat in  last week's election in Comox-Powell River but saw his  margin of victory sliced thin by a hard-charging campaign on behalf of Mike Hicks of the Progressive Conservatives. '  The Gibsons Marina should be "substantially completed" by the end of September, marina developer Art  McGinnis told the Coast News last week.  Gibsons has been selected as the site of the first BC  Tel Service Mart as part of a field trial extending phone  mart-type services to smaller communities.  10 YEARS AGO  Representatives from Hydro, the Environment and  Land Use Committee and the Cheekeye-Dunsmuir  Coalition met in Sechelt to discuss possible routes and  substantion locations. No firm decision was reached.  A community referendum is slated for the people of  Roberts Creek who will be asked to approve the financing of a $350,000 community centre. Once electoral approval is recieved, application for a provincial grant of  one third to one half the total cost will be made.

Former principal W.S. Potter will return to Gibsons to  make the speech at the graduation ceremonies at  Elphiqstone Secondary School.  30 YEARS AGO  Rural mail delivery is guaranteed for the west end of  Sechelt.  40 YEARS AGO  Initial steps have been taken in the construction of  the Northwest Bay section of the Sechelt highway.

SUBSCRIPTION RATES  Canada: 1 year 835; 8 months $20; Foreign; 1 year $40  and consequences  Ail week CBC Radio has  been asking for contributions to  its compilation of war stories to  commemorate World War Two  which was just starting 50 years  ago. Well I have one and it's a  story with a moral, perhaps, not  only for young lovers but also  for anyone who has ever  thought he could escape all the  consequences of his actions.  It began the day a squadron  of young English pilots was stationed near Windsor Mills,  Quebec, in a village called, St.  Francois Xavier, St. Francois  for short, which had the only air  strip for miles around. I don't  remember why the pilots were  there, only that they were, by all  accounts, a handsome lot.  My mother was a young girl  tbfen, in her early :_0*sT J?ut  already married to my Ei^shY  "father who, as an enthusiastic t  soldier, had joined the Canadian Army at the very beginning  of the war and, consequently,  was one of the first shipped  overseas. To stay her lonliness,  my mother spent time with her  best friend, Genevieve, who was  not married but who was very  anxious to be so, especially after  she spied one of the particularly  handsome English pilots so near  at hand.  Genevieve fell in love with the  pilot, my mother says, and to all  accounts and purposes, the pilot  seemed to have fallen in love  with her. Clandestine meetings  followed.  It was necessary that Genevieve and her pilot carry on  their courtship in secret as the  local girls with the squadron  was frowned upon. And the  pilots were "English cups of  tea", as far as Genevieve's  father was concerned so on the  day she announced she was going to marry her man, he had a  particularly bad shock.  According to my mother,  who was present when Genevieve told "her "father she was in  love with an English pilot, the  poor man 'rollecl his ^yes, beat  his fist upon the table and  demanded to know if his  daughter was mad.  Genevieve had asked my  mother to be present, she said,  not only to give her confidence  but also because, "My father  won't insult the English too  much with you standing there  'Iready married to one."  As it turned out, Genevieve's  father couldn't have cared less if  my mother was there or not. He  berated the English, the war, St.  Francois Xavier and pilots in  particular until he was exhausted. Through it all, Genevieve stood firm. Nothing he  could say would change her  mind, she said.  Genevieve's father finally  folded and although he did not  exactly give his daughter his  blessing to marry her pilot, he  told her he would no longer put  up any resistance. Genevieve,  my mother said, was ecstatic  and began organizing her wedding.  Three weeks before it was all  to take place, the English pilot  disappeared. His mates in the  squadron still left at the air base-  could only shrug and tell  Genevieve he had asked to be  posted somewhere else and she  never heard from him again.  Thirty years later, though, I  found myself sitting next to a  fat, balding man who worked  for an English bank. We were in  the garden of the golf club in  Karachi, Pakistan.  "Ah ha," he said when he  heard I was a Canadian.  He scratched his sunburnt  head.  "I was in Canada once, during the war, in a little place called St. Francois Xavier."  By 1969, the airfield at St.  Francois had been left to grow  grass and it took me a while to  realize he wasn't kidding. He  had been, he told me, a pilot,  and he mentioned a girl called  Genevieve.  Suddenly I remembered the  whole story of her love affair,  an incident which was still talked about in Windsor Mills as a  warning to all young girls who  contemplated falling in love too  quickly and with the wrong  man. I remembered my mother  telling me how heartbroken her  friend had been. :  There seated before me in  Karachi, Pakistan of all places,  was the man who had inspired  defiance of family, church and  tradition in the heart of a young  girl and who had then left her so  shamelessly three weeks before  her wedding.  Cutting him short, I abruptly  stood up.  "I know all about you," I  said. "You louse."  Environmental notes  Battle over nature has been won  by Jeremy Frith  The closing decades of the  20th century bear one major  message for humanity. It is,  simply, that we have won.  After millenia of battling  nature, of fighting to evolve and  struggling to survive, we have  finally won. This marvellous  planet with all its mysteries is  now ours to control.  But the victory has been a  costly one. By subjugating  nature we have nearly destroyed  the planet and ourselves and the  threat of such destruction increases daily.  I'm not speaking of that obvious method of annihilation,  nuclear war. To be sure we  possess the means to blow it all  up but, far more insidiously,  destruction lies in our ability to  push the planet around.  The unbridled power that  humans possess through modern mechanization is an unprecedented strain on the  world's natural resources. As a  case in point consider that in  one year in the early 70's the  once teeming herring schools of  the Bay of Fundy were wiped,  out through over-fishing.  Similar happenings occur  regularly now in all aspects of  man's interaction with the  natural environment. Animal  and plant species become extinct on a daily basis,  ecosystems become overburdened and burn out.  Yet, many ecological disasters are impossible to see. Only  fishermen really know the fish  are no longer there. Only the  scientist can find dioxins or  monitor PCBs.  There is, however, one arena  in which environmental  degradation is immediately obvious on a global scale. The  visual impact of our devastated  forests cannot be hidden.  From Borneo to Brazil,  Nepal to Nigeria, Cambodia to  Clayoquot Sound, the pressure  of tree cutting is unceasing, the  results hideous and ecologically  disastrous. Worldwide deforestation is affecting weather  patterns, increasing global warming and accelerating soil erosion and the loss of wildlife  habitat.  Essentially, because of  machines, we are able to attack  and down more forest per  forest-worker than ever before.  In the third world, 'slash and  bum' agricultural methods are  frequently responsible for much  jungle clearing. Where axes  once limited the scale of such  operations, the use of chainsaws  and bulldozers allows for trees  to be cut in huge numbers.  The resulting erosion and  nutrient loss leaves the land  useless for crops or trees for  decades afterwards and even  centuries. This process continues on until the last hill is  cleared and the forest is no  ''mon.^-y]yyv^y'-:-y  In North America, we have  long sat beside our vast stretches  of flat cropland, much of them  once hardwood forest and in  our gentler temperate climate  smirked at the folly of such  ' primitive practices as 'slash and  burn'.  From time to time we protest  the destruction of the Brazilian  rain forest and the annihilation  of its Native Indian and unique  animal inhabitants.  We have held ourselves up as  paragons of civilization and  modern scientific managers of  the environment. If you believe  that then drive to Ucluelet or  along almost any highway in  BC.  The large scale clear cuts you  will see are the result of the profit motive in action.  They are caused by an expansionist economy that requires  more resource volume each  year. It is not loggers that cause  clear cuts. Forest workers are  wage earners that work under  instructions. All too often their  lives are put at risk by profit-  motivated policies from above.  The fact is that the forest products companies are largely  responsible for clear cut  policies. Their insatiable  demands for more and more  wood has pushed EC's Annual  Allowable Cut to 90 million  cubic metres. Meanwhile the  province loses 80 million dollars  annually to soil degradation  (caused by bad logging practices), a figure that is rising  steadily.  The need for greater profit  margins sends more half million  dollar machines and fewer men  into the bush yearly. Greater  economic returns of clear cutting are reducing logging jobs,  not environmentalists' protests  or Native land claims.  To deal properly witliYthe  forests requires more hands on  manpower, gentler logging  techniques and government  foresters with power to dictate  to the multinationals instead of  the reverse. More selective logging can be accomplished here as  it has been in Europe for centuries.'-   ;. y"YY.  If it: costs more then perhaps  it is time, for corporate  shareholders to share the costs.  It is time for us all, to share the  responsibility for the world's  environmental decline and do  something about it.  It would appear that public  outcry gets results because the  size of clear cuts is diminishing  and the practice itself is suddenly coming under government  review. We must cry out even  more at every sign of ongoing  environmental damage.  We must urgently cease our  fight with nature, for though we  may have won the battle jive certainly stand to lose the war,  _S___  ���--tut -,  RIBBON  I AWARD  Your community's  AWARDMIfyNIMG  newspaper  1  <:     ��� <  ' _   .   . ., -r --:��� �����������  ,j...tJ...

It is a group  %that is opposed to the way our  government is trying to force  the French language upon all  Canadians.  Many of us are as opposed to  this ever increasing practice as  much as the people of Quebec  would be if English was forced  upon them. Their right to the  use of their language was written into history long ago. Let's  have equal consideration.  As for you mentioning our  friend Larry Labonte - I  couldn't agree with you more!  He was indeed a very fine  mayor (as you would have been)  and he is a credit to the community.  I'm sure that the students to  whom he spoke in French were  delighted - imagine how our  Japanese visitors would be impressed were Mayor Strom able  to greet them in their language.  It is regrettable that Mr.  Knaus chose the word  "contamination" in reference  to the inclusion of French on  the CBC news channel in BC  when the reverse is totally unacceptable in Quebec. His choice  of a word probably stems from  the fact that English is not his  first language.  Being a Canadian who was  born in Switzerland he probably  thinks in his mother tongue  before speaking and more particularly when writing. I would  prefer to think that he meant  "an unwanted ingredient" in  our way of life in British Columbia.  I might add that Mr. Knaus  speaks five languages including  French and Sri Lankan. You as  a former teacher, John, would  understand that some meanings  are distorted or lost in translation. I'm tolerant enough to  think this was the case.  Being English born (with  Parisian French relatives) I v^ell  know, as you do John, that we  Scots and English are known to  have language interpretation  problems.  Let's not confuse French people with the manner in which  the French language is being imposed upon us. It was a most  charming French Canadian who  introduced me to his buddy,  Bob Maxwell, presently my husband of 49 years.  Joy Maxwell  Editor's  note:  The  following  was received for publication.

In reply to his unfavourable  remarks re APEC and the personal attacks on me I should  like to reply as follows:  My policy is to endeavour to  attack problems and not individuals. Where I criticize I try  to come up with a workable  solution, which is more than  many writers do.  The comments that I dislike  teachers is unfair. What I am  working on is the accountability  of teachers to the tax paying  public in the face of a functional 25 per cent illiteracy rate  among Canadians.  Regarding Goebbels/Third  Reich - I have lived in  Switzerland during the Second  World War and the post war  years, some 20 kilometres away  from the borders of the Third  Reich. I have rendered military  service to defend Switzerland. I  Tax exemption?  Editor's note: The following  has been received for publication.  Gibsons Council  Upon driving by the tennis  courts in Lower Gibsons last  Sunday evening, I was reminded  of the notorious stench  emanating from the Gibsons  Sewage Treatment Plant.  This continues to be an ongoing problem and I fully sympathize with the' homeowners  who have been forced to live,  with these unreasonable living  conditions for so long.  This problem should be given  top priority and fixed properly.  This will be expensive but bv  spending now, hopefully money  will be saved in the long run.  The taxpayers in the vicinity  of the Sewage Treatment Plant  have been extremely patient.  They have watched as their properties have become less,  desirable as they are affected by  the stink.  I feel these homeowners, at  the least, should be exempt  from paying ^property taxes un- '-  .til theproblen^ jscleared up, or  that theYTown of: Gmsons:;  should buy the properties of  families who wish to relocate.  ArtDew  Gibsons, BC  Common sense  Editor:  Despite Dr. Westlake's anti-  abortionist propaganda printed  in her letter to your paper last  week, common sense tells us  that if a pregnant woman really  wants to abort, for whatever  reason, she will.  Common sense also dictates  that sterile facilities should remain available locally for this  procedure for, as the good doctor so graphically points out,  abortion can be life-threatening,  even under ideal conditions.  Presently, St. Mary's performs therapeutic abortions on  a limited scale, but we cannot  take this for granted.

Instead, council has given the society time to  study   the   reports   from   the  building inspector and the town  planner which were requested at  the August 15 council meeting.  The   prime   goal   of   the  SCMHS is the construction of  the  replica  of Captain  Vancouver's   ship,   the   HMS  Discovery and it has asked the  Town of Gibsons for "interim  use" of the waterfront park as a  building site for this project as  well as for the old Fire Hall,  which the SCMHS has proposed moving to the park from its  present   location   across   the  street, for use as a maritime  museum.  The scheme, in the words of  Gibsons Economic Development Strategy Committee is  "unequalled" in "charisma and  economic potential".  The Building Inspector Ralph  Jones concluded, however,  after his examination of the old  Fire Hall: "The cost of moving  this building would be more  than the replacement cost of  new material to replace existing  frame on a new foundation."  And in his planner's report  last week, Buchan said he has  misgivings regarding the  SCMHS proposed use of the  park which he "cannot reconcile", and he raised various concerns.  "Do the people of Gibsons  wish this major land asset to be  used in this 'temporary' manner?" Buchan asked.  There is also no provision, he  said, in the zoning by-law for  temporary use of the park as a  shipyard or for ship construction. "Similarly, museums are  specifically permited in the administration zone only."  According to Buchan there  are also the potential problems  of harbour congestion with the  proposed site' difficulty in the  dredging of the water area;  hydrological problems which  could prove a costly impediment towards the society's pro  posal and the fact "without a  long term guarantee that Gibsons would be more than just a  nominal home port...the  economic development benefits  would be drastically curtailed  from their full potential - being  more or less reduced to the  ship's construction period  only.  "The subject proposal,"  Buchan said, "if pursued successfully to its conclusion in a  suitable location, has the  capacity to be a world-class  event, with a lasting positive impact.  "However, I cannot disregard my lingering discomfort  with this situation and I must,  with all due respect, recommend  against the temporary use of the  municipal waterfront park for  the society's proposal."  The 'might-have-been-park'  at the mouth of Roberts Creek  now has a partly constructed  private house on it but the  discussion goes on.  Bob Michor, agent for the  Toronto owner of the property  spoke to the West Howe Sound  Recreation Commission  (WHSRC) last week.  "If the $72,500 (that was  discussed verbally) had been put  in writing" he said, "you could  have a park there now."  Michor went on to outline the  developments that he said  started four years ago when the  regional district offered $1 for  the property, while the owner  was asking $100,000.  Lengthy discussions resulted  in a top offer from the Sunshine  Coast Regional District of  $68,500, the appraised value.  But this was too little and too  late and came just two days  before the planned concrete  pouring date, after the owner  had already spent a great deal to  prepare the site for building.  "The board said we had to  have an appraisal" explained  WHSRC Chairman Brett McGillivray. "You can't spend  taxpayers' money without an  appraisal."  "It's a sad story" Area D  representative Hans Penner  commented, "that for $10 or  $15,000 we couldn't reach an  agreement."  "The point I'm trying to  make" Michor concluded, "if  you're interested in any piece of  property, make'sure you're involved with what's happening,  don't just leave it up to the  regional district."

"A lot of people have really  not paid attention to the  brochures or to the press,"  Fraser said. "There is an  abysmal lack of knowledge."  He said he hesitated to say  this lack was "typical" but  RAC committee member Jane  Sorko said she would say it for  him.  As for the chances of air time  on Channel 11, "I feel there are  those at Channel 11 who are  adamantly opposed to the proposition," she said and she  recommended an attempt to interest other television stations to  pick up the story.  "If we can come up with  something outrageous  enough," she said, "we can attract provincial television."  She advocated the RAC saying something "horribly  outrageous about the mill", for  example.  Jim McDowell, the reporter  covering the RAC meetings for  The Press newspaper interjected: "You need a stunt," he  said. "The opposition is a stunt  in itself."  He commented that the committee could organize its story  before contacting a television  station and to list issues and  questions so a news reporter (a  particular one from BCTV was  mentioned) could come to the  Coast and do a news report  quickly.  which is the most powerful  medium," McDowell said,  "you have to package it."  Fraser said he felt the issue  was that if the area doesn't  restructure it will be "an opportunity that can be mi>sed which  is a story in itself."  The one concern of the RAC  which had not been addressed in  the draft from Victoria was the  budget issue.  Up until now, Alderman  John Reynoldds said, the  monies spent by the RAC were  "coming out of the town's coffers."  There was $4400 not  budgeted for and he didn't want  to spend additional funds, he  said.  "We have to find the money  somewhere," Mayor Diane  Strom said and told the RAC  the issue would be raised with  Gibsons Council as soon as  possible.  A "fairly small" meeting between the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) directors from Areas E and F, SCRD  Chairman Peggy Connor and  Finance Chairman Gordon  Wilson is slated for Tuesday.  Blane Hagedorn and Malcolm  Fraser will be representing the  RAC and there will be one  member present at the meeting  from Gibsons Council.  _ _  Timeline" is reviewed  by Ellen Frith  The "time line" of correspondence regarding the proposed date of holding a referendum on restructuring was explained by Gibsons Alderman  John Reynolds at the September  5 council meeting, and he read  aloud, on request from a  member of the audience, the  August 23 letter to Mayor Diane  Strom from Minister of  Municipal Affairs Rita Johnston which stated she (the  hiinister) "could not commit to  a referendum on October 7."  : In opening her letter, Johnston apologizes for her "tardy  reply to your request for a  restructure referendum" and  adds that the Gibsons proposal  is "a complex and comprehensive undertaking."  According to Reynolds the  "time line" of correspondence  began  on  February  7,   1989,  when the original Gibsons  Restructuring Committee  recommended May 20, 1989,  for the restructuring referendum and included three other  communications before the  June 13 official request from  Gibsons Council to the minister  to: direct a poll to be taken October 7, 1989; to hold a split  vote and to approve further  grant monies to cover the costs  of disseminating information.  Those letters were followed  by an August 9 letter requesting  a response to the June 13 one  and an August 17 letter "further requesting approval of  funds."  On August 31, Reynolds called the municipal affairs office  and asked if council, "should  consider the October 7 date as  dead or if there was still some  hope it may be approved." At  that time, he was told, he said,  the October 7 date was "still  possible".

Apparently it is the proposal  "that the Port Mellon mill of  the Howe Sound Pulp and  Paper company be brought into  the community," which is the  central focus of the discussion  taking place in Victoria.  The issue was brought before  the provincial cabinet on  August 30 and now, according  to Strom, "it's sitting on  Premier Bill Vander Zalm's  desk".  She hoped, she told council  last week, to hear from Victoria  "within a couple of days."  The   decision   to   allow   a ,  referendum vote on October 7-  came to  the town  from the  Ministry of Municipal Affairs  on Friday. It was not clear that  any changes in the Municipal ;  Act were required.     .     i     ^   :;  ,,!:: -;���������'������' -"��� '  ��� ���- m.-; <->nY  ������  iX3Ii  Chronicles  by Dick Kennett  The passing years may come  and go, but I go on forever!  These words are my response  to Madge Whitworth's recent  outburst, "I've just about had it  I think, Dick."  Now past 86, the Whitworth  Chronicles reveal the humour of  this former Roberts Creek  matriarch and historian so,  before they put a tag on her toe,  death is no stranger to Madge  Whitworth Newman, as I relate  her undertaking adventure.  "When I was a young lady  our neighbour Tom Loney  came over to our place on the  the Crowe Road and informed  mother and me that his wife had  just died. I said if there is  anything we can do, please ask.  "The next morning Tom  showed again and asked if I  would take my makeup kit over  and touch up his wife's face; no  undertakers or funeral parlors  in those days.  "I had never seen a corpse  nor had I been in cosmetics.  Then I thought there would be  few people at the funeral what  with little transportation from  Roberts Creek.  "Over I went to the Loney's  with cosmetics and a cross  which I had made of two cedar  kindling sticks covered with  ferns and spring pansies, and  there in the living room was  Mrs. Loney in her coffin resting  on two saw horses.  "In life, Mrs. Loney had  been quite colourless and I  thought too much rouge and the  like on her face will turn her into a clown so I did what was  best and left."  Rural Life for Madge has been  rewarding to this day. Besides  raising her son Jeff, she was  Surrogate Mother to two young  girls from two nurses and she  raised them for more than a  dozen years, well into their  teens.  ^ On the occasion of her recent  birthday one wrote this, "My  prayer for you is that this year  would bring fewer hassles with  medication, more good books  to read, few household problems, many flowers in your  garden, delicious food and the  company of good friends and  loved ones."

In a four-page letter to council containing approximately 20  signatures, a newly formed  group of "Gibsons Harbour  Concerned Citizens", stated  emphatically that the August 2  beach unloading proposal from  Nickel Brothers was unacceptable to the group whose goal is  "to preserve the marine life and-  recreational   values   of   the  bay..."  The citizen's group suggests  Nickel Brothers seek a non-  residential/recreation site for its  heavy equipment transportation  operation.  Alderman Gerry Dixon said  he agreed with most of the  points raised by the group and  Mayor Diane Strom said,  "Their concerns are our concerns."

All three local governments received the letter from  Cranbrook Council at their  general meetings last week.  Cranbrook is encouraging  other BC municipalities to  broach the issue of hazardous  * waste storage within municipal  ! boundaries at the Union of  i British Columbia Municipalities  ! (UBCM) convention to be held  J.later this month in Penticton.  I    The PCB issue in Cranbrook  ; began on August 23, 1988 when  [Kelly Douglas and Company  [Ltd. transported 24 barrels of  jPCBs and PCB contaminated  ; waste   from   Vancouver   and  stored it in its warehouse in  Cranbrook. A week later the  local Worker's Compensation  Board informed Waste Management of the situation.  On September 2, 1988 Kelly  Douglas applied for a permit to  store up to 1300 litres of PCBs  and up to 5000 kilograms of  PCB contaminated materials in  the Cranbrook warehouse until  a provincial treatment and  disposal unit is built.  The City of Cranbrook countered on October 3 by passing a  by-law which provided, "...no  person shall tranport and store  PCBs generated outside city  boundaries into the municipality", and Kelly Douglas temporarily relocated the offending  materials to a BC Hydro substation outside the city limits.  In spite of strong opposition  to the application, and a public  hearing in Cranbrook which  drew over 200 local residents,  the provincial government  granted Kelly Douglas its permit  on June 16 of this year. The  government informed Cranbrook its by-law was "considered inoperative."

Economic Development Officer Bill Moore told the Coast  News this was not, in his opinion, a possibility.  Sechelt Council filed its letter  from Cranbrook for information but the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) moved to support Cranbrook in bringing "pressure on the provincial government to do something" in regards to hazardous  waste storage in the province.  Gibsons Alderman Gerry  Dixon said at the SCRD  meeting, September 7, he felt  the Cranbrook by-law deserved  support at the UBCM. "The  people who create them (PCBs)  should have a place on site to  put them," he said.  Area E Director Jim Gurney,  however, felt the City of Cranbrook had a "very narrow  minded approach to the issue."  He felt it imperative, though,  the provincial government  resolve to seriously consider  alternatives to the problems of  PCBs such as neutralizing them  at their source.  He also felt, he said, that proper shipping and storing of  hazardous wastes at specific  sites in the province was preferred to having them spread out in  small amounts all over BC.  "We should support the bylaw," Area D-Director Brett  McGillivray said, "and try and  put pressure on the provincial  government to do something.  That's why we're there at the  UBCM, to put pressure on the  provincial government."

Hi  by George Cooper  The great blue flag that has  flown all summer atop a 100  foot cedar on North Fletcher  has just been hauled down for  refurbishing.  The flag, visible to boaters on  stretches of Howe Sound and  the Strait of Georgia as well as  to many residents on Gibsons'  slopes, has been a topic of conversation this past summer. The  Coast News' Guess Where used  a shot of it a few weeks ago.  "The design developed spontaneously over drawings by  Mark," said Evi Blueth. "He  likes flags and thought we  should have one."  So, over supper the idea  developed, and 14-year-old  Mark followed through to do  the actual sewing of the flag  assisted by his Dad, Peter Anson, and Evi.  In the centre of the flag is a  logo-like combination of sun,  moon and a watchful eye.  "No, it expresses no special  theme, but the symbols seemed  just right for our flag."  Peter said that getting up the  tree was a scary venture. "Lots  of sway as I got near the top to  clamp the stripped-down TV  aerial in place."  Peter said the branches were  well spaced to make the climb  fairly easy, but he was not looking forward to when he would  climb again to bring the flag  down.  "The breeze is always fresh  up there, and the flag is beginning to fray."   ~N  Stylish  ;';:Y-Y-^/?0|llWv;.Yr:v:  Coordinates  Limited Quantities  Just for You  PRICE  #5? Just for you  The Ansons had used this  same material commercially  made flags are made of  "although we did make our first  flag out of a bed sheet."  Peter Anson only saw the flag  occasionally this past summer  since he has been away in Manning Park on a catering contract  to a youth work project.  I modified a Bluebird bus to  make a kitchen that meets all  health regulations and this is my  third season providing food and  camp requirements for various  wilderness projects that employ  youth."  This past summer a selected  group of Grade 11 students, 12  boys and 12 girls, from across  BC worked in a 56-day project  with six supervisors to widen a  stretch of the Dewdney Trail for  use by pack horse. The site is 20  kilometres from the park's west  entrance.  "You see the youngsters  develop a sense of purpose and  resonsibility very quickly,"  Peter said. "They change  before your eyes."  JOBIES' REUNION  October 15 is the date of a  reunion of all those who have  been members of Job's Daughters of Bethel 28, and of other  'Jobies' who have visited here  over the years.  The place is the Masonic Hall  in Roberts Creek at 2:30. A  potluck supper will be served.  Call Marg Hauka at 886-8236 to  register.

OFT TO OTTAWA  Former Gibsons alderman  Larry Trainor and his wife,  Marie are now residing in Ottawa. "We've left our spacious  home on Martin Road with  some regret. Now to accommodate ourselves to apartment  living."  Larry served on council from  1978 to 1982. During that time  he chaired the committee that  initialized the marina project.  The Trainors have a daughter  and grown granddaughter in  Ottawa and they return to a city  where they resided for many  years.  "It was a decision we made  reluctantly but our daughter  persuaded us to come to Ottawa."  Larry was an officer in the  regular army, serving most of  his military career of 33 years  "and one day" in the Pay  Corps.  Sister-in-law Vera Trainor  left Gibsons at the same time to  live in Ottawa.

Soames transfers  water system  The Soames Point residents voted overwhelmingly at a recent referendum in favour of transferring the Soames Point  Waterworks District's "rights, obligations, assets and  liabilities" to the Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD)  which will be, Area E Director Jim Gurney told last week's  board meeting, "a good addition to our water supply."  "With a very little money," he said, "it'll be a very good  water system."  Of the 114 ballots issued in the referendum, there were 92  returned of which 81 voted in favour of integration with the  SCRD.  SCRD recycling  The paper supply at the Sunshine Coast Regional District  office is running low, apparently, and any re-ordering of supplies will now include recycled paper products.  "Recycled paper isn't bright white," Area A Director Gordon Wilson said, "but the SCRD should be responsive to environmental concerns."  The school year starts for these students in a brand new Halfmoon Bay Elementary School. Estimated enrolment for the  'A social pollution'  school this year was 80 but the actual registration is 113. (See  Halfmoon Bay column, Page 20.) ���Vera Elliott photo  Sechelt citizens fight vandalism  by Penny Fuller  Residents around Snickett  Park in Sechelt are organizing  ir an attempt to deal with the  "social pollution" which has  plagued that area this summer.  They complained of noise, litter, speeding, drinking and  harassment of both residents  and visitors along the boulevard  in Trail Bay and around the  park.  Staff Sergeant Stelter was  part of a meeting held  Septembejf I-;' whichYincluded  Aldermen jyttke. Shanks and  Doiig Reid^Hfeh 0>xxt acted for  comment about the situation,  Stelter said the meeting was actually about traffic and some  residents desire to restrict driving along the boulevard.  "You're going to make a big  story out of this," he said, "and  its not a big problem."  The Sfaff Sergeant maintains  the problem this year has been  no worse than other years and  that the situation is being blown  out of proportion.  "It's the same behaviour that  kids do all over the Coast," he  explained, adding that complaints to the RCMP seem to  have been mainly about 'kids  cruising', littering and noise.  "I don't want to belittle  this," he went on. "We respond  to every call by residents and  have numerous extra patrols of  the area."  This includes about 20 visits  to the area each day.  The  recommendations  that  ea_ne=out of the.ad hoc meeting,  'were presented to Sechelt Council at last week's meeting by  Alderman Reid.  The residents want the  boulevard closed to all car traffic and turned into a waterfront  park from Snickett Park to the  walkway east of Trail Avenue.  Relevant to that, they made  four other suggestions toad-  dress the resultant parking problem.  k%t  From The Producers,  Cast & Crew Of   ,.  .v*  The  Beachcombers  Thank You  Gibsons  For a successful 18th Season  mmmmm  ��� ���vi .1   ���..ii..i n jui, .in.. ��� i�� i.niqwnvwiaflltqpmr^nTrnTtiwWp^  Thank you for your help, your patience and  good-will.

Prank cuts  off power  An opening day prank by  four or five of Chatelech High  School's Grade 12 boys caused  a power cut-off last Tuesday  morning at the school and  because of set call-out rates by  the BC Hydro and the School  District's crews who responded  to the problem, it has ended up  costing the boys a total of $600.  "They realize it was a silly  thing to do," Chatelech Principal Jack Pope told the Coast  News, "and they are doing  everything to make up for it.  The boys, who all stepped  forward and identified themselves as the prank perpetrators  are also organizing and running  the school's noontime sports  program from now until  Christmas as further compensation for their actions on the first  day of school.  There was really no damage  done, Pope said, to either the  school computers or to anything  else. "It was just a silly thing to  do," he said.  Plankton  Reid said the RCMP had  agreed to cooperate with the latter recommendation.  During discussion which  followed Reid's presentation,  council learned of the considerable damage that had been  done the previous weekend at  Kinnikinnick Park.  Alderman Mike Shanks told  the meeting gates had been  chopped down, posts uprooted  and considerable damage done  do the playing field by cars doing Iwheelies'.

Coast News, September 11,1989  A good time was had by all at Canfor's Annual Employees Picnic  last Monday afternoon. There was something for everyone: good  food, swimming, entertainment, tug-o-war competitions and a  great crowd. ���Kent Sheridan photo  When Herb is not labouring  over his literary endeavours he  mingles with his ill-fated  neighbours. This company includes another fallen Man of  the Cloth by the name of  Reverend Phillip Goodwin.  Goodwin is facing the noose for  the cold-blooded and most un-  ministerly slaying of a Los  Angeles stockbroker. Herb is  sympathetic at first but, despite  their similar backgrounds, he  finds little in common with  Goodwin and soon dismisses  him as a vain and empty man.  Herb is far more kindly  disposed towards an outright  atheist named Curly Thompson. A tall rawboned man with  red hair and bad teeth, Thompson, now in his mid-thirties, is  slated to walk the last mile for  the murder of two policemen.  He will walk it as he habitually  walks, with the long steady  stride of a Kentucky hill farmer.  One day he confides his stoic  philosophy to Herb:  "My old man was a preacher  but I never cottoned to it. I've  done without it most of my life  and I don't have any need for it  now. I figure every man goes it  alone and if he's stupid enough  to get caught like I was he has to  pay the price alone too. Praying  ain't going to change anything.  But don't you worry none, I'll  die game. I won't need any holy  words to prop me up at the  end."  Rhythms  of Life  Parent-children problems  by Penny Fuller  i  *  ^ ���___   |" There's a whole group of  I'- people in their late 30's and ear-  *?ly 40's who found themselves,  p|last summer, waving farewell to  ^parents who were 'hitting the  road' in a motor home, sporting  ,a cute bumper sticker that reads  jss'Tm spending my kids' in-  |heritance' as their adolescent  ^offspring, a safety pin in one  | nostril, filled the house with  |heayy metal^Ojdcv ^ _,,. ���  fo  'It's bard $^  infuriating; Ytihe "'��� kids  ^themselves, yourYparentsY  ^laissez-faire attitude, or hearing  kyourself echo your parents'  ^ultimatums in an eerily familiar  *voice.  �� Phrases like 'You've got an  p;attitude problem' or 'nobody's  going to hire you looking like  *,;that' are coming back to haunt  $<you, aren't they?  |��;    Of course it's not the same.  ~;How can you compare granny  S^more  K:  fi K  isisin  Don't Miss  TEEN DAY  September 23rd  glasses to safety pins, mohawks  to hair past the ears, songs of  peace and love to songs of  violence and anger? Why can't  your kids rebel like you did?  There is an astrological indication of the issues being dealt  with at this time, especially for  those born between 1949 and  1951. It's the cosmic version of  'What goes around, comes  around'.  This group of people were  born .when, Uranus .(the��� planet  >Ypf;:-j^^^  Y^yidiiality) was in Cancel (the  sign associated with the home;  families, and parenting).  This placement suggests that  these people might have caused  considerable disruption within  the home and family when they  expressed their individuality.  In December, 1988, in its trek  around the heavens, Uranus  moved to a place exactly opposite its position when that  generation was born, and those  ST. _�����** m ���  ntui  filtiit  \mT  .  *4  Sunnycrest Mall  Look for details in Sept. 18 issue  of the Coast News  I!1  m  :  J  i_5_i  of you who are part of it now  have the opportunity to experience the flip side of this  aspect.  In other words, now that  you've settled down and  established your own status  quo, the flanking generations  are going to help your growth  by disrupting your life and  challenging your values.  It would all be a lot easier to  handle if your marriage (separation, divorce etc.) weren't going  through such upheavals at the.^  mpment^but that is also part, of' ^  the arena of life known as'  'family' and that's where the'  shake-up is occurring.  There is hope in sight,  however. These stages of personal development don't go on  forever. Just as puberty and  menopause pass in time, so does  your Uranus opposition. Actually, by the fall of 1990 much  of this turmoil will have calmed  down for you. At that time it  will begin for your younger siblings.  Everybody needs freedom to  be themselves, you just have to  be cautious that your freedom  isn't at somebody else's expense, and .vice versa. You  might also try to avoid overreacting. It could lead to actions  that you'll regret later.  If you can step outside the  situation, you will recognize  that this is just another stage of  personal growth and you might  even thank your family for acting as catalysts for your  development.  Herb has somewhat less  respect for BID Bringhurst,  Thompson's partner, who has  been sentenced to hang on the  same charge, Bringhurst is a  husky, six-foot, black-haired  man around 40. Lacking the  straightforward fatalism of his  crony, he has elected to embrace  the doctrines of Christian  Science in his dwindling days. A  minister of that faith will accompany him to the scaffold.  For   both   atheist   and  eleventh-hour   convert,   however, the end is to be much  the same. The date of their joint  execution is set for Good Friday. After some consultation  the affair is rescheduled for the  following Monday in order to  avoid any odious comparisons  with the Crucifixion. Promptly  at 10 minutes after 10 that morning they drop through the trap.  Thompson's   neck   is   cleanly  broken. Bringhurst's demise is  somewhat more gruesome. The  hangman has made a misjudgement and Bringhurst's head is  almost torn from his body. But  justice  has  been served  and  there they dangle, partners in  crime; brothers in death.  It is a brutal, eye-for-an-eye  world that Herb Wilson has  been thrust into. This is a way-  station to eternity and death sits  always in one cell or another.  Herb tries not to brood on the  situation but despite himself he  has bad dreams. They all do.  The ghosts of many long-swung  men pace the tier.  One of the most notorious  members of this ever-changing  'flock'   is   William   Edward  Hickman,   more   commonly  known as The Fox. He has  committed one of the more  reprehensible crimes in recent  California annals. It involved  the   kidnapping   of   Marian  Parker, teenage daughter of a  Los Angeles banker, and the  subsequent demand for $1500  ransom. When the money was  reluctantly paid, the girl was  returned in a trunk - dead, her  young body cruelly mutilated.  The manhunt that followed was  widespread and relentless. The  .Fox was finally run to earth.  The trial way swift. The jury's  ybte  ��� Was   unanimous..  The  judgement unsurprising.  WOOD     ^  HEATING  frmf*niiiKk  (ONE STOP SHOP)  STKVI.

Carole   Rubin   of   SCEPP  (Sunshine Coast Environmental  Protection Project) led the  discussion after viewing the  Western Canada Wilderness  Committee's video on the Carr-  manah Valley rainforest.  Rubin said the fate of the  spectacular valley is not yet  resolved and that committee  supporters were monitoring any  logging or road building activity  near the valley. Bracewell joined  Rubin in encouraging those attending to "spread the word to  friends and neighbours in a  positive manner on this and  other issues".  An open welcome for one  and all to attend this coming  Saturday's (September 16) "Environmental Walk" in Vancouver was extended by Dawe.  The walk starts at 12 noon from  Kits Beach to Queen Elizabeth  Park.  Tomorrow evening in the  Elphinstone gym the RCMP  Bison band presents a concert  of music to appeal to a wide  variety of tastes.  A bison head, or buffalo as  most call it, was once part of the  insignia of RCMP, and a symbol of the stirring early days in  the west when 'mounted', actually meant horsemen.  Now the band of nine musicians travels in a Twin Otter aircraft to get them around the  country in a demanding  schedule of several hundred  concerts a year.  The Bison members were all  experienced professional musicians before joining the RCMP  band, where they had to meet  all personnel selection standards  and to take regular recruit training.  Their full time duties,  however, are in the band. Many  of them play several instruments; some do vocals and  emceeing.  Besides the brass and woodwinds, there are 'unmilitary' instruments such as guitars, synthesizers, a piano, marimba, accordion and even the mouth  organ.  Be prepared for some pleasant music and fun  The Bison leader, Randy  Demmon, was a music teacher  in the Northwest Territories  school system in 1972, when he  auditioned for the band.  Born in Kamioops, he played  in school bands and by age 14,  in rock and roll groups. He  earned a degree in music at  UBC specializing in oboe and  English horn, and later turned  to keyboard instruments.  Singer Kerry-Anne Kutz grew  up in Saskatoon, then moved to  Montreal. She sings in many  styles - pop, scat, oratio - and  has performed with such international figures as Leontyne  Price.  Kerry-Anne was the first  woman member (1984) of the  RCMP band.  Tickets for the concert are at  the Gibsons RCMP office.  Adults $4; children under 13  and seniors $2.  Corporal Waite of the Gibsons detachment points out,  "Proceeds of the ticket sales  will be used here for some worthy cause that will benefit the  whole community."

That's exactly what I discovered at the Cedars  Pub when I stopped in for lunch last week. They've added  even more choices to their ample selection of delicious dining  options. It was almost too much of a good thing.  I've often opted for 'The Carvery' a wonderful hot buffet  offered between 11:30 and 2 pm every day. It contains a nice  selection of meat and vegetables, as well as salad, and  eliminates the need to cook anything substantial for dinner.  On this occasion, the two daily specials looked equally appealing - Salisbury steak or a chicken caesar salad. I was  already having trouble making up my mind when my partner  pointed to the new menu sitting on the table.  Soups have been added to the selection, an even wider  variety of snacks and three (Count them. Three!) great  burgers to choose from.  It was too much. I reverted to my time-tried favourite - a  Cedar's burger. My partner went for the homemade soup and  Salisbury steak.  Having spent considerable time in the selection procedure,  I was pleased when the food came promptly, salvaging my  lunch hour. It was, as expected, wonderful. The Salisbury  steak disappeared quickly, in spite of the ample portions.  I tried, I really tried to finish the Cedar's burger - fresh  mushrooms, crisp bascon, cheese and all. But I just couldn't  doit.  Next time, I'll give myself the whole day to work up an appetite and hit the Cedars for dinner. The kitchen doesn't close  until 9:30 so I should be able to enjoy every bite.  Average meal prices do not include liquor  Andy's Restaurant- Every Wednesday night is Prime Rib Night.

It was an eight team tourney  with the teams split into two  pools of four with each team  playing each other once in a  Round Robin format.  In pool A, Larry's Slo-Pokes  sunk the Ferry Workers 21 to  10, beat HEU 10 to 3, and  defeated CPU II 8 to 6.  In pool B the Teachers  defeated the Langdale Wrecks,  CPU, and the IWA team to win  its pool.  In the semi-finals, the Slo-  Pokes had a tough time to get  by the IWA team 10 to 7 in an  action packed game.  In the other semi-final game  on Sunday evening, the  Teachers slipped by the Pulp  Workers 6 to 5 in a crucial game  to advance to the finals on  Monday.  In the finals on Labour Day,  the Teachers gave the Slo-Pokes  a good lesson on how Slo-Pitch  should be played.  The Slo-Pokes opened up the  scoring with runs by Jim Benger  and Dale Boghean. The Teachers replied with runs by James  Ferguson and Linda Doerkson  to tie the game in the second inning at 2.  In the third inning the  Teachers held a class on safe  Golf Club expansion update  by Frank Nanson  The information meeting on  last Friday was well attended  and I believe very informative.  Many pertinent questions were  asked and several suggestions  put to the chairman of the expansion committee, Barrie  Reeves, who did an excellent  job bringing us up to date on  the negotiations to date.  Peggy Connor was at the  mike for a large part of the  evening explaining what is taking place at the regional board  level. Apparently it is the 27 or  so acres that we are hoping will  come by purchase from M & B  that is still in the negotiation  stage. Remember M & B are  now controlled by Noranda in  the east and it is much more difficult to deal with that situation  than it was when they were controlled from Vancouver.  The mayor of Sechelt, Tom  Meredith gave us a rundown on  the plans for the Sechelt Golf  Course.

' Y  might have an effect on the expansion plans at our course.  The feeling I picked up from  his talk was that the Sechelt  Course was more of a tourist  promotion endeavour. The plan  is to get a developer, possibly  from overseas to come in and  build the course which will be a  full 7200 yards.  It may be more of a Whistler  type of endeavour and all that  goes with that sort of thing,  rather than a strictly local;use  type of course.

Peggy inferred that if all items  -money, land, our agreement  with the regional board as to  public use of the facility, etc.  are concluded in the next six  months that she could see us  ready to start work next spring.  Sounds good, but much negotiation is still necessary.  The short discussion on  public use of the course seemed  to infer that if we continued to  operate as we do at the present  time, that is all that would be required. Please remember all of  the above is only what I gleaned  from the meeting, not necessarily what is to be.  Floor  hockey  haven?  by Rose Nicholson  Floor hockey teams in Gibsons are still looking for a  home.  Gwen Robertson and four  young players from Gibsons  Elementary put their case to the  West Howe Sound Recreation  Commission last week. Robertson outlined the frustrations the  floor hockey leagues have experienced in trying to find a  place to play.  "I wanted to help these kids  help themselves" she said. "I  think it's a worthwhile effort.  They put a lot of effort into it.  "They got the kids out week  after week. I would like to see a  space for them, and I don't appreciate being pushed around.  "Floor hockey is a good  sport for this area because it can  be played outside most of the  year whereas most sports are  seasonal."  Members of the commission  pointed out they do not have the  power to authorize the use of  any particular facility, but promised to give a letter of support  and suggested that the group request the use of Elphinstone  gym.  "If we had had this support a  year ago" Robertson said, "I'm  sure we would have been given  some space."  hitting and produced the maximum five runs in an inning on  hits by Janice Brown, Bill Sluis,  John Pritchard, Ken Stokowsky  and Linda Doerkson again to  go ahead 7 to 2.  With their last bats, the Slo-  Pokes staged a bit of a comeback with runs by Debbie  Boghean and Steve Hoops but  with the bases full of runners  the Teachers made a nice double  play to erase any hope of the  Slo-Pokes winning its first tournament.  It was a well-earned victory  for the Teachers who became  the third different winner of the  three major tournaments this  summer. The loss was a bitter  pill to swallow for the Slo-  Pokes who were runners-up in  all three tournaments this  season.  In the Consolation game the  Pulp Workers II beat the Wood  Workers for the third and  fourth place respectively.  Thus wraps up a most entertaining season of Slo-Pitch.  On the  Rocks  by Harry Turner  As the curling season gets  closer, the names are starting to  roll in for this year's play. Be  sure to get your name in for this  season so you, too, can join in  on the fun.  Leagues will shortly be forming up for men's, ladies and  mixed play.  This week, and in weeks to  come, we would like to tell you  a little bit about the curling  slide.  The slide was introduced to  the game in the early 50's and  now it is a fixed part of the  game. It takes a bit of skill to  perfect as it is one of the more  exacting parts of the game.  The best way to slitfe is to  turn the toe out slightly so there  is less strain on the knee. It is  also important to get down  behind the rock so that you can  ljne up with the skip's broom.  Infect balance without the help  of yourhroom is best but is very  hard ta achieve.  Curling is a sport for  everyone so get your name in to  Ed Hill at 886-3925, Larry  Peninzek at 886-9144 or club  President Doreen Stewart at  886-7891.  We at the club would  especially like to invite any new  members of our community to  join the club and enjoy the  game this winter.

CORRECTION  Last week I mixed up a  mother and daughter situation!  It was Maria Budd who was  Junior Girls Champion and  winner of one of the closest to  the pin awards, not her mother  Debbie Budd! Both Roy Scarr  and I apologize for this error.  The   first   annual   "Grant  Scotch Ball Tournament"  finished with a sudden death  play-off. The winners were  Mary Horn and Jean Dean with  Debbie Sneddon and Marion  Reeves the runners-up.  In the nine hole ladies group  we had Margo Matthews winning and Lucette Venables taking  second place in their annual  "back to school" tournament.  Our Sunshine Coast Ladies'  inter-club teams came out the  winners and therefore retained  the trophies against both the  Squamish   (away)   and   Glen  Eagles (at home) teams.  In Senior Men's play Ed  Laidlaw and his team of Lloyd  Breedon, Jack Milburn, Harold -  Little and Jack Breedon took  the honours with a low net of  102.5. Dan Belle and his group  replenished their supply of trees  with the high low net.  FLASH  Can anyone confirm the  rumor that Celia has been seen  practising on the eighth, by  candle-light in preparation for  the successful drive on the  eighth last week?  Girl Guides Review  by Agnes Labonte  This summer has been an exciting year on the Sunshine  Coast for members of the Girl  Guides of Canada.

May.Widman has  foreseen the need for admiration without weeding by arranging a trip to VanDusen Gardens  on Wednesday/September 20.  The bus will leave the Royal  Bank in Sechelt at 9:20 am to  catch the 10:30 am ferry, with  return planned for the 5:30 pm  sailing out of Horseshoe Bay.  Arrangements have been  made for lunch at the new  Bridgepoint Market which is  naturally an extra.  Cost of the bus trip including  admittance to the gardens is $15  per person.

The preschool does not own its  own facility but will be renting  the basement of Sheanne Ben-  nie's home.  That is on Crow Road which  Dick 'Reeves informs me has  been misspelled for years. It's  named after a man called  Joseph Crow whose name was  just like the bird. You'll notice  the sign on the highway has  been changed at Dick's behest.

NEW HALL RUMOURS  Many of our members will  have noticed references in the  local press recently with regard  to development of Block 7 (west  of the Trail Bay Mall) by the  District of Sechelt and, in some  instances, the suggestion that  this development could possibly  include a senior's complex.  Whether this senior's complex is proposed as belonging to  Branch 69, as it must if we are  to be involved, or whether it will  belong to the community is yet  in the formative stage. It is too  early in any proposal or  negotiations to comment sensibly on the matter.  In the meantime, members  are requested to remain calm  while your committee members  examine all aspects of the suggestions as they develop, which  will then be presented in due  course for discussion, questions  and possibly action.  POT LUCK BEANFEST  You will note that your  'Special Events' section of your  activity sheet lists a Pot Luck  Supper on Saturday evening,  September 16 iat 6 pm.        ;  It's my understanding tljtat  'Beanfest' has been added to $ie  menu as an 'and/or'. The ladies  will be contacted to bring food  and the men will be charged $2  at the door for the privilege of  sampling these ladies' favourite  recipes.  It's an excellent chance to  socialize   with   your   fellow  members as well as to enjoy an  evening out.

SHOP LOCALLY  ^S^mTifff-^^^M^^^SlWff^^Wial^^B  e w s  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  Several days before school  opening I decided to ��� go and  have a look at the new Halfmoon Bay School in Welcome  Woods.  Despite the fact there were  still a few days left, I found  some of the teachers already  hard at work preparing their  own particular classrooms. The  paint was hardly dry but pictures and other items were  already up on the bright walls of  these light and airy rooms. It  was a pleasant surprise to see  what a beautiful little school  this has turned out to be.  At the moment, the grounds  are still unfinished and there is  sand all around but by the end  of this week it is possible there  will be lawns laid out. Meanwhile, the parking lot is being  used as the playground.  Excitement filled the air on  opening morning and there was  a race to see who would be the  first pupil to enter the building.  The honour went to Lissa  Amberg of Grade six. She will  remember that morning for the  rest of her life.  Plans are being made for an  official opening ceremony to  take place later this year.  While on the subject of  schools, the Halfmoon Bay  Child Care Centre is now open  at the old Halfmoon Bay school  and is accepting registration for  children 18 months to school  age.  Hours are from 7:30 am to 6  pm. Drop-in attendance will  commence September 15.  The after school program is  also running and it is at the new  school.  If anyone is willing to donate  toys, equipment, old towels or  paint shirts, please call 885-3654  or 885-3739.  A HOME FOUND  Susan McLeod of Redrooffs  has been pleased to find a good  home for the friendly golden lab  who decided to adopt her.  ARTS SESSIONS  For those of you who are interested in getting together with  fellow artists, or potential  fellow artists, you can phone  Olive Comyn at 885-2378 for information. Sessions will start on  Monday, September 25 at  Welcome Beach Hall on Red  rooffs from 1:30 to 4 pm each  Monday.  FLEA MARKET  I hope you are remembering  to collect your treasures to  donate to the Welcome Beach  Flea Market on October 22.  Anything you give will go to a  good cause which is the fund for  improvements to the building.  BROWNIES AND GLIDES  Registration for the Halfmoon Bay Brownies and Guides  will take place on Tuesday,  September 19 from 6 to 8 pm at  St. Hilda's Church in Sechelt.  Unfortunately there is a bit of  a crisis in the Brownie situation.  Unless someone is willing to  come forward and lend a hand  to Glenys there may not be a  Halfmoon Bay Brownie pack.  There must be many young  mothers out there who could  give some time to this great  organization. No experience is  necessary and there is a lot of  pleasure and satisfaction to be  gained.  Give Glenys a call at 885-9868  or Monika at 885-9733 arid they  will be glad to talk to you.  SHOPPERS BUS  Discussions are still underway  regarding the Redrooffs shoppers bus situation. By some time  this week a positive arrangement will hopefully be made  which should suit all concerned.  The changes will be announced  as soon as they are established. ;  CHILDCARE  The Halfmoon Bay Childcare  Centre opened its doors for the j  first time on Tuesday, ;  September 5. It is operating in  the old Halfmoon Bay school  until November, when they plan  to move to the new school site.  The out-of-school program is  running out of the new school  everyday.  Spaces are available for  children 18 months to Grade 7..;  For more information call  our office at 885-2266.

Garden Bay ratepayer and  former North Vancouver mayor  Tom Reid today filed a petition  at the Supreme Court seeking to  set aside the controversial  district zoning by-law that  would permit the condominium  project to go ahead.  Harrison said the association  supports the action because the  Farrington Cove development  has such serious implications  for Pender Harbour, but greatly  regrets that court action should  be necessary.  The petition filed by Reid  seeks to have the court quash  wholly or in part two rezoning  by-laws passed Jby the Regional  District AugustylO of this year.  Specifically the grounds are that  the public hearing for the two  by-laws was held in Sechelt instead of Pender Harbour; that  the hearing was conducted in  such a manner as to prevent the  public from making representations; that the hearing was not  held in such a manner that all  persons affected by the porpos-  ed by-law were afforded  reasonable opportunity to be  heard; that the written report of  the hearing failed to contain a  fair and accurate summary of  the nature of the representations  made; and in the alternative  that the public hearing should  have been adjourned to Pender  Harbour as requested.  The petition will be heard  September 28 in New  Westminster.  "My hope is that this action  will result in the people of  Pender Harbour getting a better  opportunity to decide the kind  of community they want to live  in," said Harrison. "But  fighting city hall is expensive.  Several residents have reached  deep into their pockets to get  this action going, and more will  have to chip in if it's to be sue?  cessful.''

Gardening notes  by Marguerite  Welcome to all newcomers to  the Sunshine Coast, especially  gardners. Hope you're enjoying  our Indian Summer weather,  that we hope will continue.  September usually means  clean up time in the garden  while enjoying the fruits of our  labour, or storing for later use.  It's actually the start of the  gardening year.  Meanwhile be aware of any  frost warnings if you are ripening tomatoes on the vine. Cover  them at night because of the  dew. Somethimes mistakes we  made in planting by wrong location, not enough sun or shade,  or our soil is not correct etc.  We can improve our knowledge by observation and study  and by having a graphic plan of  our area which suits you personally. Each garden is different.  A garden journal can record"  for reference and is most useful  in planning.  Generally speaking, in the  fall, plants can be moved while;  the ground is still warm and get  established before winter. Plant;  wallflowers, violas, pansies,-  primulas, flowering bulbs and;  peonies.  Clean  out greenhouse and:  wash with some bleach in the)  water.   Divide   summer   per-;  renials, feed chrysanthemums,?  spray roses for mildew and col--  lect leaves if they have black  spot carefully, not letting them  drop to the ground. Dispose of  them by burning or garbage as  the spore reinfects.  The sunflower  contest  for  kids   will   be   judged   and"  measured on Sunday, September 24 in Pioneer Park at 2 pm..}.

IBS  Coast News, September 11,1989  23.  by Kirtlye Woodruff  Scene at the Howe Sound Pulp and Paper mill in Port Mellon.  (See story.)  ���Vera Elliott photo  In my experience with Howe  Sound Pulp and Paper (HSPP),  I find a parallel in the story of  the five blind men, each who  comes in contact with just one  part of an elephant.  "It's a flag," said one who  touches the elephant's ear. The  animal's huge, rough side is  mistaken for a wall, his leg for a  tree trunk, his tail for a rope.  And the last blind man thinks  he is holding a hose, but it's just  the elephant's trunk.  I decided to see what the industry presents when it opens its  doors through a guided tour of  this giant economic force and  focus of continual controversy;  this 'elephant' which has only to  breathe to be noticed.  Our tour guide turned out to  be a surprise. Jennifer Ear-  waker, a Sunshine Coast native  and UBC science student, conducts the tours as part of her  For Rent  Gibsons 2 bdrm.  F/P, 5 appls.

Suited out in boots, hard hat,  earphone-like hearing protectors, two sets of goggles and a  respirator, Earwaker is thoroughly informed and irrepres-  sibly congenial. HSPP could  not have a more pleasing ambassador than this young, blond  woman.  Our group of five boarded  the tour van and were driven to  a hillside opposite the road that  has replaced the dusty gravel  passage through the site. From  this vantage point, the pulp-  making process, which continues amid the extensive construction work, was described  and related to the structures in  view.  Wood chips arrive by sea  at the distant dock on large  scows and are unloaded by  crane or wheel loader with a  bucket, the huge jaws of which  we later see in action. Silos  store the chips by species of  wood corresponding to the different characteristics of pulp  desired.  My senses were filled with the  loud hum of construction  equipment, the sweet smell of  pulp, the caustic scent of sulfur  and with clouds of gray and  white. Occasionally my eyes  'would smart.  Our guide pointed out the  tall, yellow tower vessel called  the Kamyr digester. Here, and  in smaller batch digesters, chips  are continuously cooked with  chemicals at high temperatures  and pressure. This new digester  will be the largest in the world  and the first of its kind in BC.  The 'fat' red vessel, tapered  like a huge bottle, was identified  as the blow tank. The sudden  release of pressure into this tank  causes the chips to explode into  individual fibres and to turn into dark, brown pulp.  As Earwaker competently  recited the many facts related to  the mill, her voice regularly  trailed up as if to question that  we could possibly follow all of  the presentation.  Claimed to be the first used in  BC and only the third in  Canada, the two tall, thin  towers are the site of oxygen  delignification, where natural  wood glue is removed before the  pulp is bleached.  The largest structure, recently  clad with siding and currently  under full construction, was  described as the chemical  recovery/power boiler. At a  height equivalent to a 30-storey  building, it is the largest plant of  its kind in the world.  Here the stage is being set for  upgrading the complex processes of chemical recovery, fuel  recycling and the generation of  energy to power the mill.  Previous trips to the mill had  exposed me, for the first time,  to the earth-shaking, adrenalin-  pumping sound of an explosive  blast, which issues from the  huge excavation by the road.  This, our guide explained, is the  future site of thermo-mechani-  cal pulping, where newsprint  will be made for export to  Japan.  Our guide drove us past the  area where the new effluent  treatment plant is in early stages  of construction and onto the  seashore. Here, 20 acres of land  are slated to provide for more  chip storage to meet customer  needs.  Our tour group  was  then  directed into a meeting room  where a drawing of the site and  a diagram comparing old and  new technology was displayed  and which covered most of two  walls.  Earwaker presented some  history of the mill, stating that  in April of 1988, HSPP Ltd.  was formed as a joint venture,  of Canfor Corporation and Oji  Paper Company - the largest  paper producer in Japan.  One billion dollars is  budgeted for the expansion and  the nearly complete replacement  of the plant, with $88 million to  be spent on environmental protection.  Each environmental pollutant, resulting from the production process, was addressed in  turn.  Effluent will undergo a two-  part treatment before its  ultimate disposal into the ocean.  The secondary treatment includes a pond with bacteria  which consume dioxins left in  waste water. Oxygen is bubbled  in to keep the bacteria active  and to replace that which is  depleted from the habitat of sea  life when rotting waste fibres  oxidize.  Control of chlorinated  organics is to be accomplished  by reducing the amount of  chlorine used in bleaching the  pulp. Several processes will be  employed to remove as much  lignen (natural wood glue) as  possible before the pulp reaches  the bleach plant, where a  minimum of chlorine will be  needed for treatment. In the  bleaching process, a high  substitution of chlorine dioxide  will further reduce use of  chlorine.  ...to be continued  Gibsons Library report  Professional &  'Confidential  Correspondence,  Contracts, etc. Y  Qtye piper Mm  883-9911      n|  Child Care  Sitter needed for before & after  school for 8 year old girl.

MARY'S  HOSPITAL  SOCIETY  The location for the  Annual General Meeting  has been changed:  From: The Senior  Citizens' Hail,  Sechelt, BC  To: The Sechelt  Indian Band Hall,  Sechelt, BC  Wednesday, the 27th day  of September, 1989  at the hour of 7:30 pm  E.H. Wright  Secretary to the Board  by Pamela Fekhtner  The Gibsons Public Library  over the summer and since the  last board meeting in mid-June  has managed to survive and give  service to the community. This  despite having to cope with  'various frustrations, such as  local funding running out at the  'end of June and the regional  district library referendum not  being held.  At the end of June the paid  clerk position was eliminated.  But as Often happens as one  door closes another opens. Our  Challenge 89 Student, a government funded position for July  and August was approved and  once again was a great asset.  Jennifer Sinclair, a student  with no previous library experience, quickly learned desk  and shelving procedures. The  community librarian found Jennifer's cheerful, willing and  positive attitude a tremendous  help in assisting her with completing such tasks as the adult  non-fiction inventory, sorting  the display materials and also  Vandalism  causing  concern  by Rose Nicholson  i   Vandalism in parks on the  Sunshine Coast continues to be  a major problem. Steve Alex  ander, Regional District Parks  Superintendent, described the  recent extensive damage at the  park at the mouth of Roberts  Creek at last week's meeting of  :he West Howe Sound Recrea-  :ion Commission.  "I'm getting fed up with fixing the damage" he said.  "It seems to be a floating  group" Area E Director Jim  Gurney said. "They go to one  place one night and then on to  another the next night. I don't  know how they know what's  happening but they all seem to  know where the party is."  "I think we need more public  I co-operation" Alexander added, "something like a neighbourhood watch."  Alexander also brought to the  attention of the commission the  need to look at providing permanent public washrooms in  regional parks.  "You're going to need these  facilities" he said, "if you're  going to start to develop public  parks."  After lengthy discussion the  commission agreed such a  washroom would be erected at  the newly developed Whispering  Firs park.  thoroughly cleaning the library.  This included washing all the  book shelves, storage room,  stairway etc.  Four more volunteers started  working for us over the summer  and their main task was to  shelve books and shelf-read,  that, i^ j��ut $ie books in order.  They will begin their training on  desk wofk very shortly.  At the end of June we held  our fifth Annual Teddy Bears  Picnic. Almost 40 children attended and at least as many  bears of assorted shapes and  sizes. Nest Lewis read stories  and our thanks go to Super Valu  and Pam's Pantry for supplying  the coffee, juice and cookies.  The summer went very well  with circulation and memberships continuing to increase. We  managed   to   borrow   from  general funds to keep our  Children's Librarian, Gail  Reimer, our only paid person  on staff and she was even able  to take a well earned week of  vacation.  The frustrations we had to  cope with arose from the ongoing extremely slow process in  getting the steps to the referendum approved and the fact that  although the regional district  approved monies for July and  August, it apparently legally  could not follow through.  However, with the latest news  that the regional district is now  prepared to go ahead and hold  the library referendum on  September 23, we look forward  to and trust that the eligible  voters in the community will be  out in force to support and keep  their community library open.

CAPILANO  COLLEGE  Secheit  Regional Centre  5627 Inlet Avenue  Sechelt  British Columbia  I  Fears raised during question  period at last week's Gibsons  Council meeting in regards to  the proposed industrial six (16)  zoning of eight acres of the  Hillside Industrial Park near  Port Mellon for use by the four  petroleum companies operating  on the Coast, are unfounded  Economic Development Officer  Bill Moore told the Coast News.  "The eight acres will be used  for the containment of  petroleum products," Moore  said. "There will be fuel tank  storage, outbuildings for  greases and oils and possibly a  small tank to hold propane  gas."  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District Economic Development  Committee Chairman Maurice  Egan added: "The eight acres  will be entirely limited to use by  the four petroleum companies."  At the suggestion that the  province would use the 16 site as  a dumping ground for hazardous wastes, Moore said, "In  negotiations with the province,  they have never asked or im  plied that any area (at Hillside)  be set aside for hazardous products. We are committed to  making Hillside Industrial Park  environmentally safe."   .  Moore added that in the construction of the facilities at the  site, consideration will be given  to the fact the Sunshine Coast is  an earthquake area.  "The storage tanks built here  are built differently than they  are on the Prairies, for  example," he said.  Moore and Egan attended  Gibsons Council meeting on  September 5 to present council  with an update on the Hillside  Industrial site which, Egan said,  "takes only a couple of minutes  to summarize but which took  months to put together."  In explaining the proposed  layout of the 405 acre Hillside  Industrial Park with 155 of  those acres slated for environmental reserach, the type  of industry they hope the park  will attract and what the planned marketing techniques for the  various sites will be, Moore  stressed Hillside will be an  "environmentally sound showcase", which will "demonstrate  how industry and the environ  ment can work together."  He also stressed the importance of establishing a fuel dock  on the Coast outside of the  towns as well as a barge.yw.harf  where  hazardous i or ;inflamY  mable goods can be trarispoirted  without   utilizing^ the^!ferry^  system. This will ?be insjtaUed/  within two years, lie saMVani^k  will eliminate the fuel storage  tanks in Sechelt, Gibsons arid  Roberts Creek.  Y "I think it (Hillside Industrial  Park) has a very exciting poten  tiai of creating 800 new jobs,"  Moore said.

Sunday, September 24, 1989  Time: 2:00 pm  Place.Pender Harbour & District  Health Centre  -E_B  By-Law battle in Sechelt  by Penny Fuller  Sechelt Council got tied in a  knot around its procedures in  passing by-laws last week, when  by-law 30-2 was given first and  second reading, received a sixth-  sevenths approval to go to third  reading, and then was defeated.  Confusion arose when Alderman Doug Reid lost track of  what exactly was being voted  on, during the heated debate  around the issue.  By-law 30-2 amends the zoning category 1-3. Currently,  anyone applying for a building  pefmit in the 1-3 zone on Field  Road or Porpoise Bay is required to do off-site work providing curbs and gutter, storm  drains and a shoulder along the  road to the existing asphalt.  This by-law would eliminate  that requirement for a building  permit.  "The' by:law was initially 'introduced to accommodate the  planned expansion of APPA  Seafoods on Field Road. That  company is planning to expand  its operation which would mean  approximately 200 more jobs,  Mayor Tom Meredith said.  Because of the location of the  property, the required off-site  work would begin nowhere and  end nowhere, unconnected to  anything, he explained.  Planner Rob Sabine told  council it is not possible to  change the 1-3 zoning for only  the  Field  Road  area so  the  amendment would affect the  similarly zoned parcels in Porpoise Bay and any future 1-3  zoning.  While Alderman Reid appeared to support the changes,  he explained that until that  meeting he had not been aware  the amendments would have to  apply to the Porpoise Bay area  as well. He needed more time to  consider the implications, he  said.  Aldermen Bob Wilson and  Joyce Kolibas were adamantly  opposed to the amendments in  spite  a reserve fund would be set  aside out of the taxes received  from these areas for off-site  work when it is warranted.  The by-law was given first  and second reading with Wilson  and Kolibas opposed. Meredith  called for agreement to conduct  third reading of the by-law and  no one opposed the suggestion.  Then some verbal sparring^  broke out between the mayor  and Alderman Wilson.  Alderman Reid asked for input from the administrator and  the planner, but Meredith maintained they had already given all  the information they had. He  then called for third reading and  Wilson, Kolibas and Reid opposed the motion.  Wilson was temporarily  jubilant, as it appeared the bylaw had been defeated, but Reid  explained he had been voting on  whether or not to hold third  reading.  "I don't think your side  should win on a technicality,"  he said. "I don't think you'd  want that."  He told the mayor he was  concerned that, "Before we  finally adopt this document,  these people (the planner and  administrator) should give it a  second going over.",  Council finally agreed to rescind the defeated motion and  table third reading of the by-law  until the council meeting of',.

Long told the Coast News the  main pipeline, as well as the  necessary distribution system  for the Coast would "employ a  lot of residents and cut fuelling  costs to many homes." It would  also bring new industry to the  area, he said.  Construction on the pipeline,  barring any injunctions brought  against it by Lower Mainland  mayors adamant that it not  cross the Coquitlam watershed,  should begin in October Long  said.  According to Long, the  pipeline is "a real positive  thing," but at last week's board  meeting, the Sunshine Coast  Regional District directors  seemed less enthusiastic about  the project, and District of  Sechelt Mayor Tom Meredith  told the Coast News approval of  the pipeline was not unanimous  on that council either.  Although Sechelt supported  the concept of the pipeline, he  said, "We might have some  prbblems with the route."  Area A Director Gordon  Wilson said he had "very  serious concerns" about the  pipeline's proposed route near  the St. Mary's Hospital and  through the residential area of  Sechelt.  "Has anyone asked where  this is going," he said. "I have  not seen any documentation of  where this is going to go."  Area E Director Jim Gurney  suggests the regional board  write to the company hired to  lay the pipeline and request it  come before the planning committee with maps and full  documentation on the route.  "This is the third time we  asked them," Wilson said and  called the whole scheme "a  political boondoggle".  Fish farm protection  by Ellen Frith  The Ministry of Agriculture  and Fisheries' Agriculture Protection Act which includes  aquaculture operations under its  application will only serve to  make fish farming an even more  unpopular industry, Area E  Director Jim Gurney said at last  week's board meeting. "The  province thinks it's helping the  industry," he said, "but it's  not."  Essentially the act states that  all activities on a farm (including fish farms) associated  with production such as land  cultivation, operation of machinery and equipment, application of pesticides, fertilizers  and conditioners and the use of  noise scare devices are allowable  under provincial law.  The act "again undermines  the land regulation powers of  the regional district" the board  feels and voted to write to the  Minisry of Municipal Affairs to  object.
