Rumours and suggestions that the Sechelt Peninsula  has been logged out are some what premature and certainly  not according to facts which present themselves to even the most  casual investigator.  Logging can yet continue on the spit of land between Port  Mellon and Pender Harbour for many hundreds of years..  GIBSONS. Port Mellon, paper pulp producing town on this  Peninsula;, has been sold en block to Canada Forests  Company Ltd, according- to word released just prior to press  time. Sorg Pulp and Papr Company were previous owners.  Details of the deal, which will open up the plant, >re  meager but it is believed $3 million was the amount involved  in the transfer. Ten million dollars will be spent ind^velop-  D&te; of commencement of operation nas nbt 3^;b(B���n  released but it is known that several months yill be needed  to put the present plant in operation following its years  of disuse. '��� .-.���������'���  According to previous information and promises from the  Minister, the road to the revived townsitei will be built  "immediately". -: t  This summer a walking survey was made of proposed  changes in the present line, by Bruce Cartright, district  engineer.  Some clearing and extension work was then done on the  present surveyor's line by-a crew of men.  Further information will be forthcoming in the next issue  of this paper. ~  Possibly much more of the  forest product can be utilized  in the very near future. By  means of ctiippers, much of  what is now waste under present! methods of transporting  to the mill, can be utilized,.  This means that our forests  will  produce ^;&s��� much. <as^5>0  month, mhis is sufficient to  keep Gibsons back door operations going for ever.  Forest management licences,  that   most  cbntencious   of   all  logging questions, will, despite  the outcome of present plans,  , assure tnmber aaid forest pro-  percent^ ���mb^Smerchantabl^  produce than it does now.  This would mean our forests  are increasing in value instead  of lessening, as is now the  common  belief.  There is probably 35 million  board feet of timber cut every  year on what we call the  Sechelt Peninsula. This, under  present methods, is slated to  continue  for  many  years  yet.  It is estimated Port Mellon  will take between 3 and 4  million   feet   of   timber   every  GUMMING HEADS  CREEK ASSOCIATION  ROBERTS CREEK Robert  Gumming was elected president of the reorganized Improvement Association which  recently held a revival meeting  Other officers include, Charles  Hall, secretary, 'and K^ith  (continued  on page  5)  FUTURE PROGRAM FOR THE  VILLAGE WILL BE HEAVY  GIBSONS. "Plans for the future of our newly enlarged village  will have to depend entirely on the sequence of priority and  the amount of money to hand. We intend to inauguarate new  ideas and we will definetely have to survey the whole of the  village in order to find out it's most pressing needs.  NESTMAN HEADS NEW  VILLAGE COMMISSION  GIBSONS. Commissioner Mrs E Nestman was elected chairman  of Village Council at the first regular meeting of the new year.  William Skellett will head the Road Committee, a job he held  last year, while James Hall was named chairman of the Water  Committee.  Harley C Anderson the man  who topped the pnl],-wrU be in  charge of -Health,' Building,  and the Fire Protection Committee  for the coming year.  jNew council will place the  problem of Gower Point Road  in the lap of B.M. Maelntyre,  M.L.A., in an effort to having  'the thoroughfare put. in shape  prior to accepting the reclassification proposed by. the  Department of Public Works.  Under the Victoria scheme  the Gower Point Road would  be classed as a secondary one  with the village beins: charged  for 60 percent of the upkeep.  Council felt there was little  hope of having the highway-  classed as a primary or arterial one.- It will lean all its  efforts toward having the government put it in shape before  signing on the dotted line.  In this manner Commission  Chairman Mrs E Nestman summed up next year's planning  for the Village of Gibsons.  In an interview, Mrs Nestman  pointed to the advent of the  car ferry and its effect on the  villager Traffic hazardjs will  also develope from this, "as  well as some of the good  things",,   she   said.  The new Chairman made  a several point program which  will  . include.  1. Water planning.. The survey  to be, made in the "very near  future",, will have this primarily   in   mind.  2. Rulings on construction,  sanitation and fire will be  "rigidly enforced". Construction of the future will have to  conform to the "betterment1  plan".  .       ���'   .  3. A new truck will be bought  for the Water and Road-committees.  4. A full time employee will  be hired by the village who  will be charged with application of plans proposed for both  the   above   committees.  "Regarding the second proposal", Mrs Nestman said,  Commissioner Harlev Anderson  will have authority to enforce  many of our building and sanitation regulations which have  hitherto been left to chance."  The village is now big  enough to warrant a truck  being on full time. There is  much w^rk to be done here  now, and it is neccessary to  have someone who can be on  the job all the time. By this  means we can ' put our village  in better shape and keep it  there.  "We  will   a^so  have   viore  money coming from our share  of   the    S.S.   and   M.A.    Tax  (This   will   certainly   come   in  handy".

This:  company,  far  from  being  the  largest     (Rotter's    operations:  are thought to be the largest.)  <can    operate,    under   present  operative   methods,   30 (miies  back  from   the   main   Sechelt  highway.  They  are now back  only nine and a half miles.  Prom the picture at the top  of this story, one can see sufficient timber to keep this one  company in operation for many  years  LS Jackson,, managing director of Burns and Jackson,  in an interview with this paper,  minced no words when forecasting the future of logging  on  this Peninsula.  From his background of logging here since  1910 he said.  "When people talk about  thiis area being jogged out,  they are talking through their  hats ".With proper planning-  and it doesn 't need much of  that even, this area between  Sechelt and Port Mellon can be  logged for hundreds of years  to come, even under improved  efficient methods than that  being used now".  "Gibsons back door is a  natural for reforestation. Without help it will replant itself,  but with planned cutting and  nurturing there is ah enormous  future for our area.  "This   is    purely   a    rough  (continued  on  page 5)  There is every reason to  believe that Gibsons and the  whole of the Sechelt Peninsula  is entering ,a new era.. It will  be up to every one of us to  get on our toes and help guide  it along in the way which will  lead to peace and progress.  If the Village Commission has  anything to do with that aim,  it will be done. The  Coast News  Thursday January 4  1951.  DON'T SLEEP NOIV  THIS IS the beginning of a new era for- the  Sechelt Peninsula..  Judging by all the signs, and there are  many, this fair area of ours bids well to outdo  even the most optimistic forecasts, of our many  optomistic residents.  News that the car ferry and all its potential,  is now in th.e offing, must well,gladden the  hearts of they among us who believe, and  especially among they who ha ye believed so  long.  It has alwaj's been contended our area  could never "produce" money on its own  excepting logging payrolls which are seasonal  and "on the way out". ���   . -  Port Mellon had stopped and tourists were  unaware of the Sechelt Peninsula and all its  glroious scenery. Iti looked for all the world  as if the world were to pass this area by and  leave us to live our lives in peace and quiet  and semi poverty.  From out of nowhere has come news that  a $3 million industry will build itself into  several more millions simply on the strength  of what the Peninsula and surrounding area  now has.  Iti is worthy of thought that this new  plan is based on what we have now, on what  we have always had, on what has been ours  '"for many many years, our scenery and aceess-  . ability to Vancouver.  The car ferry is what can well answer  our economic problem but will doubtlessly  bring many n>pre jjrpblems in its wake.  Freight shipments skould  be  easier  and  more regular aond cheaper. The large stores in  Vancouver will be able to deliver,; at least .as   ;  far as Sechelt,.and all these things must result  in a change for us.  Store owners here have little fear of what  the chain store deliveries will do to them.-Some  of the more progressive and more far seeing  merchants claim, that Vancouver store deliveries will actually aid local outfits and they are  ''tighjt.- ��� -:"������ y---r----rri'-.'- -f-.���-t-r-,.., *-;��� - .,;;--;���-- ��� '���-  ���   ���;������.: -:/. :���=.,;..���.   When this airea can give service to every  door, every day, it will bring in more people,  more families, more smaller incidental industries. It is hardly to be believed that all these  people will immediately spend 99 cents of their  dollar in Vancouver stores by means of either  phone or mail order. It is only reasonable to  believe thait people  living  on  the  Peninsula,  off the peninsula, will, everything being equal,  spend their money here, or at least a fair  portion.  This brings the question of trade increase  right back to the door of the local merchant.  Is he ready and willing to compete with the  stores in Vancouver, or will he stay independent and high priced just because he likes it  that way?.  It is up to them what course they take.  If the merchants refuse to meet Vancouver's competition, they will surely die on the  vine. If they, as some already have on the  Peninsula, sell iait a competetive price with  Vancouver and rely on increased turnover for  their means of getting a fair yearly, profit, .  then will they grow with the area, because of,  not in spite of, increased Vancouver trade.  It is a well known fact that our people are  no longer the pioneer type. They must have  service, even when they are roughing it.  If the Sechelt Peninsula on the whole is  read}- and willing to give that service.with a  smile and leave gripes to the unimaginative  "it was good enough for Dad and therefore  good enough for me", type, they.will prosper  a<nd grow strong and rich.  We seem to be always harping on about  the  various   boards  of   trade    and    Gibsons  especially which has done absolutely nothing  constructive in*the, last few years. We must  ���irepeait. /__.. ��� .->������ ���'���'���  A strong Board of Trade, alive to the  possibility of " tapping" the tourist stream  and diverting some of it in this, direction  could well be the means of making this area  well and truly solvent, wide awake and ready  to serve.  If ever the word service should be held  high for all to see it should be now. Tourists =  love it they are willing to pay good dollars  for it. Let lis give-them lots. \  If the locals do not grasp the opportunity  that is now' waiting, a stranger will come and,  do what we are either too lazy to do or too  "blind.:"'.'        -'"    ~ ':r\-A    '-v;:- ;V;' r'--  We have hit the mother lode with the  car ferry. But it will remain buried deep under  our veneer of lethargy unless we awake.  This is no time for Rip Van Winkleism.  It is the start of a new era. It is the chance  we have been waiting for.  .  Grab it now. Tomorrow is too late.  iiuf-jsa  DON'T TAKE RISKS WITH THOSE  VALUABLES YOU CANNOT REPLACE  A Safety Deposit Box at the B of M.  Costs less than Two Cents a Day  It's surprising how many possessions of real value most  of us have. There are bonds and important documents like  deeds, insurance policies and family papers. There are personal  valuables like jewellery and those, which, worth, little perhaps  in themselves, are irreplaceable because of the memories that  go with them. If you are keeping possessions such as these at  home, you.are running a constant risk of their loss through fire,  theft or just forgetfulness. Maybe not a great risk, but it is  there all the time, and it is so easy t}o do away with. For less  than two cents a day, you can give your valuables the protection  of a safety deposit box in the vault of the Bank of Montreal. Not,  surely, a very greaitj price to pay for the' peace of mind it will  bring?. Drop into the Gibsons or Sechelt branch of the B of M  when you're next that way, and ask Rudy Andrews, the accountant, to show you his "nest" of safety deposit boxes.

The land area  the Village now consists of  strict Lots 685 and 686,  uprising 290 acres, while the  lindanes extend seaward one  >usand: feet, giving a water  3a of 212 acres. This latter  of little importance in most  pects, but it does remove  tain technicalities of juris-  :tion.  Another very important gain  ring recent 3rears is in pre-  ration for1 fire ��� fighting,  ring the hungry thirties  was possible to get some  y rudimentary fire-fighting  lipment, and a small group  men did some training.  With   the    advent  of    war,  **Cf��U*  ROYAL NAVY  MERARARUM  Jvertisement is not published or displayed  Liquor Control Board or by ihe Govern-  >f British Columbia.  many    of    these   ��� men    went  into  the  services  or into  war  work, and very few were left  here  capable  of fire - fighting  activity. Since the war ended a  group   have   again 'taken   up  the work, have formed a volunteer   fire   brigade,   holding  frequent training sessions, and  have shown in actuaf emergencies a high standard of efficiency and promptness in respond-  inng to calls. In addition, the  members of the Brigade undertook to do free of charge the  work  of  building a  fire  hall,  which is now well on the road  to completion.  The results of twenty .- one  years of trials and tribulations, efforts and frustations,  then, would seem to be somewhat  as,   on  the   credit  side:  1. A water supply systm capable of supplying somewhat  more than present demand,  and with more developement  of supplying considerably  more.  2. Service mains in place to  supply all parts of the original  Village.  3. A (for the present) adequate    municipal    accomodation  office with enough equipment  to get by.  4. Access to all properties in  the original Village.  5. Ownership of real estate and  fore-shore leases with market  value much in excess of the  book value.  6. Several thousand dollars in  liquid assets.  7. Goob credit rating, with outstanding' debenture debt more  than covered by liquid assets.  8. A new and excellent fire  hall nearly completed, with a  first-class  fire  brigade.  And on the debit side:  1. Need of early expenditure  of money in further developement of present water supply,  and planning for more water  in the future.  2. .

It   has   been   said  with  perhaps   as  much   truth  as cynicism that the weakness  of   the   democratic   process   is  that .the people get the kind of  government they deserve.  Sometimes,   but  seldom,   they  may get better than they deserve.  Be  that  as  it  may,   it  seems probable that if the electors will carefully study the  problems   to   be   surmounted,  will select officers with regard  to both willingness and ability  to serve the public in responsible  posts,   and   will   support  such officers with knowledge  and understanding, the community should continue to make  progress.

Nestman  IMMEDIATE SERVICE  -,< ���. .   ���!  0 MORROW  In a world fraught with unrest, the economic, social and political  stability of Canada has been outstanding in the post war era. Consideration of the facts cannot but lead to the conclusion that the!  coming years hold promise of ever greater development in this country  of ours. It was once said that "the twentieth century belongs tc<  Canada", and after a slowish start, it appears that this promise is  well on its way to fulfilment.  In British Columbia, developement of our natural resources and their  extension into secondary industrial fields continues. Private enterprise, working hand in hand with government, is sweeping away the  inheren.1 difficulties and building a new economy based on the  utilization and prservatiQn of resources for the greatest benefit of all.  Development on,the scale envisioned can be attained only to the  extent that we show our beHef in, our, destiny. And with this in view,  the economic and social growth of the Provincei is being encouraged  by the efforts of its government. The developments in road and railr  transport facilities, hydro-eilectric power, land settlement and  indusrial research are being pushed forward. Social changes, too  are being carried forward in health, welfare and education and many  other ways. Without these, >:onomic advance alone is of ''*?JtIe real  value.:'. ..'.. ���... ��������� . v  All this cannot be done without expenditure of large capital sums,  and it is the long term plan of your government to provide those  facilities so necessary to the cont'nued economic and social progress  of our land. With sound financial management all this is being  accomplished without great burden on the people of British Columbia  The cost of capital expansion is best illustrated by the per capita.;  debt figures which show the; decreasing, burden cf developement upon  the people of this Province.

Some of the local trees cut here range from 700 to 4,000 years  old. It is reasonable to expect that a hoary antedeluvian of 4.000  years would be subject to many of the ills of longevity and this  is most generally the case, although there have been instances  of these primordial giants cutting into very fine clear lumber.  There are many such behind Mount Elphinstone, one in particular that was counted in the annular ring growth by microscope  showing its age to be 3,400 years old. This takes us back into  earliest Bible histqry. What storms and calms these growing  things must have seen. ���  Western Bed Cedar old growth is in our  stock too, dressed and clears.

This year, your Provincial Government will invest for these three public services, just ^ver $22,300,000 or about  $20 per person. In one way or another, the activities of these [three branches-  touch the daily life of everyone living in British Columbia. That's the way  it should he.  Your money is administered to care for your requirements in the closely-  related fields of health, welfare and hospital insurance.  HEALTH BRANCH  A person's health is his  most priceless possession  and it was with this  thought in mind that the  Health Branch was formed. Its many services are  designed to safeguard the  health of every citizen  within the province. The  present services are forever expanding, and are  considered to be amongst  the best on the continent.  .-.Over 95 percent of the  population of this province takes advantage of  the public nursing service,  which brings to all people the benefits of capable  and trained personel.  . The complete health unit service covering the  province is available to over 74 percent of the  people. It includes pre-natal, infant and child  health servics, communicable disease control,  nutrition and preventative mental health services,  sanitation inspection and education, and many  other allied programs.  Tubercolosis is carefully battled on the two  important fronts, (diagnosis and treatment. A  free, province-wide diagnosis program is in effect  and free treatment is afforded those who are  unable to pay..  The elimination of venereal disease is furthered  by a progressive program which includes free  diagnosis, free treatment and the distribution  of free drugs*  Central and branch laboratory services provide  the weapons to fight communicable disease and  work closely with a capable organization designed to combat and prevent epidemics.  Thus, your health is safeguarded, from birth  to old age by the Health Branch which vigorously  furthers the maintenance of good health standards and battles disease on all fronts.  DR. G. F. AMYOT,  _J       Deputy Minister  WELFARE BRANCH  To provide social security from fear of want,  illness or unforeseen crisis  is the goal of the Welfare  Branch. In municipal and  district offices throughout the jprovince, social  workers strive to rehabilitate the handicapped,  give counselling service  to maintain family stability, ..and ..work :.with  doctors, teachers, courts,  police and many others  to treat the effects of  detrimental social conditions.  ....To ..patients in -the  Provincial Mental Hospital, mental hygiene clinics, tuberculosis hos-  itals, venereal disease clinics, and Boy's5 and  Girl's Industrial Schools, social workers bring  many services.      **  In addition, this branch also provides:  ... . Social Allowances to assure an income for  those unable to work.  . . . Mothers Allowances to assure an income  for widowed mothers with children to care for.  ... A substantial portion of the benefits  recieved by our ^senior citizens���the old age  pensioners. '  . . . Protection of children from neglect and  suffering, providing substitute family care for  wards of the government, to guarantee satisfactory adoption practices, to assist children of unmarried parents, and the parents themselves.  . . . Medical care fdr Social Assistance Recipients, including payment of Hospital Insurance  premiums.  British Columbia leads all of Canada in its  program of social welfare. This is a tribute to  the enlightened people of this province who  recognize the need for social welfare and pay  for it through the Social Security and Municipal  Aid Tax (Spercent Sales Tax). It also reflects  the economical, yet thorough administration of  the Welfare Branch. *  E.W.GRIFFITH,  Deputy Minister  HOSPITAL INSURANCE  When the Hospital insurance Service was formed   in  1948   4ts   chief  function was to free the  general public froan the  dread, of hospital bills.  Although just (emerging  from its inception period;  ithe plan hate proved- a  beneficial boon to more  than 320,000 people who  have since been hospitalized and have had their  bills paid by the Hospital  Insurance Service.   '���������  In picking up the bills, the Hospital Insurance  Service.is paying for many facilities. While you  are in the hospital, you have at your disposal  the complete services of the hospital as required,  which include public-ward accomodation; case-  room and operating-room facilities; anaesthetics;  dressings; ward nursing care; available X-ray,  laboratory   and   physiotherapy   facilities;   and  hospital maternity care. These services are covers  ed by the plan only while you are in the hospital.  The plan is financed by the fairest and most  practical method possible. Iln addition to the  premiums paid by all   citizens, the   provincial  government and your municipality each make a  contribution of 70c    for every day you are in  hospital. The  provincial   government  has , also  allotted additional money from general revenue  to cover the remainder of the plan's operating  COStS.;    ''  ��� "���", .'-.';    "  '.  Since the plan's inception, countries and states  throughout the world have been requesting particulars concerning its operation. They are interested because the Hospital Insurance Service  administers a good hospital insurance plan���one  which is designed to srve the people of B.C. in  the best possible manner.  L. F.
