The Coast News  Thursday February 22 1951  i> Job and the Tools  Chartered Transport  WHEN FRANCIS DRAGE faces the Minister of Pubic Works  with his plea for a subsidized ferry service from Gambier  Island to Gibsons, he will be standing on solid ground.  Gambier, once served by fifteen ships calling with mail and  freight every week, has now only one freighter per week and no  passenger outlet. ,        .  This is a sorry plight in which our island friends now find.,  themselves. .      .   '  When, many years ago, they made their homes on the island,  they did so in the knowledge that the mighty Union Steam  ship company would provide service. They would be able to  come and go as they wished.    .  Then progress, in the shape of the Sea Bus Lines and its  provincial government franchise came into the picture and that  -was, for the islanders,.the handwriting on the wall.  From that day to this the transport picture for Gambier and  Keats Island has looked blacker and darker.  In the words of Drage, "these islands will die if we cannot  have transportation.''  The Sechelt Peninsula will be sorry to see such a fate overcome its neighbours. "'Moreso, when it is hardly necessary.,  One recent attempt to have the Machigonne call in twice  a week was beaten off following half approval from one of the  company owners. For a moment the picture had a glimmer of  light, but that faded. * .-���'''.  During last session of the legislature, B.M. Maclntyre, MLA  spoke to the Minister of Public Works oh behalf of the stricken  islanders. * ���  Mr Carson, himself a Howe Sound man, must have hearkened to the pleadings of the man from Powell River.  The off shoot "of these conversations will be Captain Drage V  visit, under sponsorship of Mr Maclntyre, to the Department  of Public Works, with a workable plan, at not a great cost i\��  the government,  Drage is quite probably the best qualified man on the island  to fight this fight. He has been interested in furthering Gambier  ever since he first, landed on it. . ��� J  When he arrives in Vfetoria he will be armed with at least  ��� two   comprehensive- plans-   for   providing   passenger   carrying  ��� facilities to the islanders. He will undoubtedly have operating  ���'  costs and distances at his finger tips.   '  These are the only figures that Mr Carson will understand.  Population of the islands both summer and winter will have  to be provided. Probable revenue for the person operating the  boat will also-have to be taken into consideration. Initial cost  of the vessel, complete with its annual depreciation will als"o have.  : to be considered.   , ���. '���-���������..'  It. is well known that our .minister .of public works is not too  ��� favourably impressed. w,ith his own Ferries Act and all its ^implications.' It will '1%'ia big jot>v to>seilvhuh tne^icleaof subsidy ;  : but we feel that tliis-is' one, tinie when, right could be might.     ���  . . With the advent of a cari ferry there will probably^be in-  creased demand;for land on Gambier and Keats Islands,., This   '  will die if transport..cannot be had.    * * ''      ;  Such a position is not a healthy one for this area, now-just  starting to bloom into full growth. ������'������-.������������/*.,        .������-.  WTe can only hope that Mr Carson anci Mr Maclntyre realize '   k?^; V^JI���1  the full implications "of "depriving an area such as the islands, of    :lftai;lc  transport  tr  vmm-iii ?������������  ���������--^4-��-7,',: ��P<i  i I   would; point   out. that   the     pipcSidqos 'njgt;.give   out  cOm-v-.: irresponsible   statementssuch |  authority and responsibility of     pletely ^iefq^e^ replacement   is   - as  .quoted; above..;.- Errors   of- J  , that/'Ci mniission   is   restricted  ; effected.-;^;t-g V\-���Pypy,..%\Ly ......   course,/are: finally paid foriby::%  Ho^ttie  boundaries  <>f:fhv.Vii-'/:.'.S^ and    taxpayer, x|  the quoted.-re-'  ; hr use   and   sprjhg." source^.. ,'���"��� which -is just and. proper, see-' )  cannot Do applied: ���,ty;.th.e!:.\. will only "cater, to; arsni^ll'por-.   ing that under our system Of  j  the   tax- (i  tibri  of ;the ^^fn^i^lJ;fV;IIoivy . alleged  : democracy  do ynu ;&pbjf?^ authority.
