 ^SSitiSt^^t&fiMl^^ *i-  ViCTORSA, St. C  Provincial Library,  Victoria, B�� C*  Published in  Gibsons/ B.C.  Business  Leaves Gi  eti  SecSie  ater Rates  One of Gibsons' early business  men, and one who lias been known  over all the.. Sunshine Coast since,  those early years, has decided to  leave us for "Victoria, where he has  taken, a house on Howe Street.  C. P. Smith and Mrs. Smith are  leaving on July loth for their new  home.  Charley came to Gibsons, with  his wife and family of five in 1926.  He occupied the old Gibson home  for two years. During this'period,  his youngest daughter Joyce (Dolly)  was born, with the late Doctor F.  Inglis in attendance.  The Gibson house stood on the  lawn of C.P.'s present home, and  he later dismantled it when his  own home was made liveable. He  also built the, store where now  John Wood Hardware and Appliances now holds forth. At first,,  it was but a quarter of its present  size, and was enlarged, first at the  rear, and then along the side.  The first tenant of the store was  a Mr. Bennett, who ran a grocery  business. The second tenant who  leased, the store for two years was  a Mr. 'Lindsay, who, after a few  months, died, leaving C.P. with the  building tied up in the" lease. For  three years the'store was vacant.  From time to time, people went to  the Smith home for items to purchase, and gradually, C. P. started  putting-in a stock of hardware and  building supplies, and ran the store  himself. -The- business expanded  into a New and Used Goods store,  later taken over by Mac and Mac,  under the manager of James Veitch,'  as the. Sunset Hardware.  In addition to the store, he built  the first gas station. There was a  gas pump at the Co-op  store,, but  Citizens of Sechelt are now in  receipt of notices from the Sechelt  Water Works, advising them that  unless they now pay their accumulated water bills, the water service will be cut off. Many consumers have been withholding payment  awaiting the results of the actions  of the Citizens Committee and the  Public Utilities Commission with  regard to a review, of the Water  Rates structure for tl\e area.  A petition has been circulated,  and was to have been completed  and sent to the P.U.C. this past  week-end, asking for a re-hearing of  the rates, and until this is done,  the members of the Committee  wish to advise individuals that  whether payment is made or not is  outside the sphere of the committee. The Committee is working to  get an adjustment made in the  rates, and in this, they have been  repeatedly assured of the full support of the Member, A. J. Gargrave,  M.L.A.  Vol.  8 - Nov  28.  H\  Thursday July 15, 1954  Eighth Year of Publicadiosa  rmao  Repaired By  tano!ard Motors  Gerry Fahrni  In Accident  Mr. Gerry Fahrni, travelling accountant for the Peninsula, suffered a painful bruising and cuts,'  when the bridge he was' crossing  gave way, and landed him "in the  bottom of a ravine.  The. bridge', a structure at his  home," leading to his power house,  crosses a forty-foot-deep ravine, on  Gambier Island. The foot bridge  and Gerry, landed in a heap at the  bottom of the ravine, and Gerry  came up with a severely cut forehead, a cut over his eye, and a  couple of cracked ribs.  '- On his trip to Sechelt the following day, Mrs. Fahrni travelled with  C.P.'s was^ the first actual gaS- st>.^ Jmm^.;.ruir. jthjetJ)oat,and, keep,an  tion:"Thi^was expanded to:include  a tank which also serviced the outlet at the Wharf. White gas was  sold to cars and boats. This gas  station, operated later by Otto  Bangeter, grew and became the  S & S Service Station of 'Schutz  and Swallow.  Besides these activities, Charley  also sold real estate and -insurance  up and down the Peninsula, doing  most of his work on foot. He didn't  own a car.  As though these were not enough  to keep a man busy, he also took  on the job of Harbour Master, au  honorary position which he took  at the death of Mr. Winn, Sr. It had  been considered having a' paid  wharfinger, but during the depression years, Charley felt that people  could not afford even a small  charge, so held this post without  pay for eighteen years.  A further interest, for the community, was the development of the  Park, the property for this having  been willed to the Anglican Church  by Mrs. Dougall, and obtained from  them at one dollar per year.   The  first  work  done   on  the   site  was  bulldozing, a whole week of it, at  ten dollars an hour, for which C. P.  paid.   This operation turned up increasing quantities of stone, below  which it seemed impossible to go.  Picnics were held there, to encourage people to come and help clear  the   stones.    The   biggest   helpers  were   children,   and   some   of   the  ladies, of which Mrs. Nestman was  one. C. P. gives her credit for much  help in those days.' Later, Mr. Hill  (George's father) and C. P. put on  a drive for funds  to  develop   this  park.   "They    collected   almost    a  thousand dollars, which was eventually  turned   over  to  the  Kinsmen  of Gibson and District, for the development   of   the   Kinsmen   Park.  During, all   this  time,  of  course.  Mrs.    Smith   was    busy   with    the  home, and the raising and starting  out in  life of her family, now six  Doris, Eileen and Joyce.   She also  took a keen interest in community  and church work.  Both Mr. and Mrs. Smith enioyed  C. P.'s absorbing hobbv, ciUeetrig  antiques. At. one time, this included  pewter, china, pottery, dae-gers.  guns, and a host of interesting  items. Latterly, C. P. has been interested in. guns, pistols, mostly.  He sold one large and valuable col-  eye!-on Gerry,' who was still feeling  unsteady.  He was very fortunate in having  the services of his brother, a doctor, who is visiting at the Fahrni  home just now. He stitched up the  wounds in the forehead, and attended to the cracked ribs.  Prompt action on the part of R.  L. (Mike) Jackson, of Davis Bay in  all likelihood saved the Motor Vessel "Jarmac" from going awash or  sinking off Davis Bay, when she  sprang a very bad leak, en route  to Princess Louise Inlet, last  Thursday afternoon late.  Mike Jackson became aware that  the vessel was in trouble, and  towed the "Jarmac" into the booming grounds at Wilson Creek. The  leak was greater than the yacht's  pumps could cope with, and the vesi-  sel would either have gone awash,'  or sunk. Mike Jackson and Jack  Whitaker obtained permission to  get one of the pumps from the Pro;  vincial Forestry Station at Sechelt;  and Ranger J. P. Greenhouse oper^  ated the pump, keeping the vessel  afloat until she could be safely^  handled at the booming grounds at  Wilson Creek.  Mr. Atkinson of the Royal .Van^  couver Yacht Club, with his wife  and family, and guests, Mr. and  Mrs. Merril, from Boston, were  bound for Princess Louise Inlet for  a two months' vacation, aboard the  "Jarmac." .  .      .���  j  During the two days in which the  Standard Motors of Sechelt was efj  fecting repairs to the vessel, Mr;  and Mrs.'L. S. Ja,ckson of Wilson  Creek played hosts to the stranded,  vacationers, and all enjoyed their  enforced visit.  One unfortunate incident was1  caused by the heavy swell while!  the boat was moored at the^boom-f  ing grounds. She was fastened}  firmly to the piling, but in the swell;"  tipped on her side, throwing thei  sleeping family from their bunks.';  In the fall, one of the children land-'  ed on Mr. Atkinson, who suffered a;  scalp cut from the child's teeth^  which, caused-, considerable. .bleed$  ing;   ;       .���������������   ":  Apart from this accident, all  felt that they were very fortunate  indeed, and continued their interrupted journey on Saturday to complete their vacation, emphatic in  their gratitude to the Jacksons,  Whitakers, the Forestry Station  and the Standard Motors.  ocas Saras  enmsi!  Stan Allibone at Gibsons, and Bill  Smith of Sechelt, are working at  top capacity to keep hungry Peninsula people supplied with bread.  Sechelt bakery, equipped for both  retail and wholesale production is  baking with all its ovens. Gibsons,  which is purely retail, is working  overtime to try to keep up with  extra demands of summer camps  and summer people, as well as the  additional baking because of the  strike and lockouts in Vancouver.  All the facilities have been devoted to bread baking. The somewhat easier, physically, and more  profitable fancy lines of fruit  loaA'-es, cakes and other confections,  have had to be dispensed with, to  meet the emergency demands for  good, plain bread.  Long hours, speeded operations  and extra staff are making it possible for both bakers to come close  to filling- requirements, and both  bakers, their wives and their staffs  are deserving of a great deal of  credit for their cheerful assumption  of heavier burdens, to keep their  communities supplied with the  'staff of life*  Gibsons Bakeries, v/hich normally  operates on a scale just large  enough to run a retail bakery and  confectionery, in the first four days  of the emergency, used one ton of  flour, 80 lbs. yeast, 100 lbs. powdered milk, 50 lbs. salt, 100 lbs.  sugar, and one drum of malt, as  well as 100 lbs. of shortening. To,  date, Stan states that he has not  had to refuse a customer. He may  not always have had brown bread,  and had to supply white, or vice-  versa, but bread he has always  been able to supply, as well as  rolls and buns.  ��� The regular meeting ol the Commissioners of Gibsons Landing  was held" on. Tuesday evening, July 13th. Correspondence had been  received from several sources with regard to the possibility of trie  installation of Sanitary facilities on 'the Government wharf.  Hon. I ' ~~~ "  Twentieth  1  Captain Reports  Unusual Seagull  Forsaking the ways of his  brothers, a Gibsons Seagull and his  wife have decided to make their  home as close to mankind as pos?  sible.  Sitting atop a dolphin, which is  part of the structure of the outer  wing of the ferry wharfing slip at  Gibsons, is a strange structure of  seaweed and bits of grass. Nestled  comfortably in this somewhat casual structure are two seagull eggs,  plainly in sight from the bridge of  the Bainbridge, as she ties up to  discharge passengers.  Mrs. (or Mr.) Seagull sits there  without fear, when it's time for  keeping the eggs warm. They 'do  not take flight, or seem at all disturbed, when the ferry docks .and  passengers and vehicles file off,  then on again.  Captain John Bunyan estimates  that about six feet of space separate him from this unusual seagull's  nest, when he goes' to the rail to  see what progress the family is  making.

In this  matter, it was moved that a  supply of fifty pounds of copper  sulphate was to be prepared for  further use.  It was reported that a water  tiervice line from the North Road  ���party line 'had 'been broken by  a grader, due to its 'having been  installed at a depth insufficient  for .protection against such damage.

We were quite surprised at the people  -of our acquaintance who felt completely lost when it was  announced that bread would be in somewhat scarce supply  for an indefinite period.  For institutions like summer camps, and restaurants  that normally get their supplies from the baker, and are not  equipped m their kitchens for the baking of large supplies  o�� bread, we can and do feel a twinge' of sorrow For the  average homemaker, however, it should be perhaps an inconvenience, rather than a tragedy for the family. Many  families we know, the younger members, at least, will give  loud praise for whatever was responsible for a few batches  oi Mom s own home baked loaves.  Each time there is a strike, and some family commoditv  js scarce, we learn just how dependant we have become upon  modern conveniences. How many families could survive with  ���equanimity the temporary loss of services such as food canneries and preserving plants, cleaning and laundering, automobile mechanics or the telephone? Or add to those dressmaking- and tailoring, rug making and dyeing or a host of  otaier processes concerned with the making of modern life  the comparatively easy thing it is.  One learns through these little vicissitudes just how  pinch all of us depend on the works and lives of others, to  live m the way we have chosen, in this civilization of today.  That the combination of strike and lock-out should come  an.the summer dame, when people naturally dislike the house-  feeating chore of baking, is evidence of planning for the time  -when public opinion might have been depended upon to force  an early settlement. From here, of course, we can see what  a good (thing it was that it did not happen just before school  closed, when every kitchen in the land, almost, produced  -from one to half a dozen school lunches per day^..of which  $>read has long been the mainstay. Now, Mother can cook up  All sorts of items for the lunch jab home, and the;.'.need for  bread will be less. ���'*'���' r'~ ���'}'"��� "-l  " -     ������������' ������.  We cannot help but believe that each of these tests as-  ihey come along must do many things besides cause trouble  for people. They should give the younger members some  .knowledge of, and respect for, the accomplishments of an  '<plder generation who were able to live graciously and well,  in spite of the lack of today's conveniences. They may demonstrate some of the problems faced so mattei-of-factly by  ��in* pioneers, who had moved beyond the reach of such civilizing influences.  All this "Pollyannaitype" ruminating does not signify  that we approve of the present debacle, or that we would call  for a repetition, of it, for whatever good it might do. It is  simply finding some good where none was thought to exist,  like the old lady who said of the Devil "At least, he keeps  folks busy!"  Local Industry Fills Gap.  The strike and lock-out of bakery workers in Vancouver  _ias had an effect on the people of the Peninsula, in that the  bread and other baked goods produced in the city are no  longer available.  The situation could have been a rather serious one for  i?hose homes, camps and restaurants without bakers and  ���baking facilities. However, in this instance the two local  ibakeries, Sechelt and Gibsons, have stepped into the breach  ;ard are baking bread the limit of their capacity and endu-  arance, to try to take care of these people, and their regular  customers also.  We think these two bakers, Mr. Allibone and Mr. Smith,  are to be highly commended for this extra work. First, as  bake shops they have been geared to care for their regular  customers, and (the odd extra orders and occasional shoppers.  The population of the area as a whole has been remarkably  casual in its day to day attitude towards this industry. Imported products have been purchased by a large percent of  our people, who rarely give a 'thought to the two bakeries  operating locally. As soon as the outside supply is cut off, the  'local operators are expected to be able to enlarge production  ���overnight, to care for the enlarged demands.  Both bakers have cheerfully extended their hours of  -operation, increased the hours of part-time staff, and in  seme cases have employed extra help. They have not attempted to make extra profits at a time when their com-t  xnodity is in short, supply.  Such is .the attitude of humanity, however, that in all  likelihood as soon as the contracts between the city bread  companies and their employees can be settled, and their  products are again available, people who have- been able to  depend on their local bakeries will once again turn to the  city Droduct, and leave the local industry eking out an existence with their former faithful, and well satisfied customers.  This interval will have given the local businesses an.  ���opportunity to prove how good their products are, and how  ret:lly well worth shopUii*? for. Perhaps this kind of practical adverting will bs.a* frn.it, in their cass, and incensed  locil business will give them an opportunity to workup to  ���capacity throughout the year, if not actually to cx.pp.nri.  Local industries fV-t;? ' "t be loo*H i-non yyv^hr ar<  emergency suppliers, ho--.v-'vy������'-���>. They can-in', be ^-^c-'cd to  jgrt-w, only to fill.;.n a ?'u .  Editor, Coast News:  Dear Editor:  I  I have been much interested in j Mrs. Cloe Day's letter- was en  the various letters regarding the lightening and debatable too. Some  reason school teachers leave the Gf Us have got inured (in these days  Peninsula, and  I am sorry to  see . 0f industrial revolution) to hearing  the universal preoccupation with  dollars and cents creeping into  what is, or used to be considered  a more or less dedicated profession.  Mr. Peers compares the low standard of wages paid here to those  paid in Qualicum and West Vancouver, but completely overlooks  the fact thai the difference would  be very quickly swallowed up in  the higher cost of living. If the  salaries were paid by a Corporation  making swollen profits one might  expect a proportionate remuneration. By the same token, comparing- the average income of West  Vancouver with that of the Peninsula, the teachers here are actually  overpaid.  In spite of his assertions to the  contrary, it is possible to obtain  good living accommodation here if  one is willing to pay for it. A comfortable family home can be purchased for five or six thousand dollars with very low taxes, in West  Vancouver that same house would  run about twenty thousand and the  taxes    would    average    more    per  of raises fringe benefits, etc., and  may not have been giving proper  head to conditions.

Association told Education M���.ster Ray  Williston at a meeting in Victoria.  The Association called for a provincial salary scale, and suggested  the methods of the Burnham Committee now in use in England and  Wales be studied as a possible solution.  Similar representations are being  made to teachers, and a joint meeting of trustees and teachers with  Mr. Williston is anticipated.  Trustees told the minister that  voters in many districts are "at  the end of their patience" as they  face rising school taxation; that  two-thirds of operating cost of  schools is in teachers' salaries;  that half the effort of local trustees  and five-sixths of the work of the  provincial organization is now devoted to salary matters.  The situation, they said, is not  good  and  is  rapidly deteriorating.  Trustees claimed a provincial  salary scale and appropriate machinery for biennial revision, with  the government using this scale for j  salary grants, would bring B.C.  close to solving its educational finance problem.  Frank Wilson of Chiiliwack, solicitor for the B.C.S.T.A., stated that  if salaries actually paid to teachers (  on such a schedule were used in-  t  stead of a hypothetical scale to fix  salary grants, "the Cameron formula would be almost perfect."  With such a formula, plus realistic per pupil grants for other  school costs, "a true basic program,  could be equalized throughout the  province within very narrow limits  while still retaining substantial  school board autonomy," he  claimed.  He explained that under the  "Burnham Plan" a permanent committee has been set up to deal with'  salaries. It consists of two panels1,  one representing the authorities and  the other the teachers, and is headed by a chairman of sufficient stature to command the respect of bothVl  Every three years the committee j  makes salary revision recommendations to the Minister of Education.-!  Normally he accepts them.   Grants  are based on salaries actually paid.  Mr. Wilson suggested that if such  a scheme were adopted in B.C. it  should be revised every two years  instead of three. .Details of pay  differentials on the basis of locality and isolation could be worked  out.  He did not advocate importation  of the Burnham plan as a whole,  but urged that it be studied and  the principle applied to B.C.  Under present conditions the  major task of trustees has become,  salary negotiation, both with teachers and lay staff groups, he said.  This is discouraging to those willing to act as trustees by reason, of  interest in education as distinct,  from those willing to act by reason  of interest in finance.  Salary negotiations .take so much  of trustees' time, that there is serious interference with their basic  role���to interpret education to the  voters and maintain their support;  to make sure proper persons staff  the schools; and to see that school  facilities are provided and maintained.  "It is no part of their duties to  engage in a running battle with the  teachers," said Mr. Wilson. "Yet  that is what is happening," though  it is mitigated "by a lot of good  sense and good temper on both  sides."  Mr. Wilson argued that "the  settlement of teacher salaries by  eighty school boards has nothing  to do with local autonomy," but that  "on the contrary it tends to be destructive of local autonomy."  "It prevents establishment of a  satisfactory system of educational  finance and it keeps trustees and  teachers ranged against each other  . . . when they should be allies  working to advance education."  By G. M.  Th-'* r.arrow neck of land between  Sechelt and Porpoise Bay is the  isthmus of Sechelt Peninsula. At  one time the peninsula was an  island. To quote geologist LeRoy,  1907, "Sechelt Inlet formerly opened  in the Strait of Georgia at Sechelt.  In late post-glacial time, when the  land was but a little lower than it  is at present, a sand and gravel bar  was built up*by long shore currents  across the entrance. This bar is  now twenty to thirty feet above sea  level, and 1,100 yards broad."  The distance around this peninsula is roughly 53 miles. To the  Avest lies the Straits of Georgia; to  the north-west,. Agamemnon Channel, which is the south arm of Jervis Inlet; and to the east,. Sechelt  Inlet. The north end of Sechelt Inlet is called Skookum Chuck Narrows. Three miles from the north  entrance to the Narrows, the  Skookum Chuck (Sechelt Rapids)  begins. Again quoting LeRoy, "The  narrowing of the fiords at certain  points produces very strong tidal  currents. The principal ones in  this region are.the Lions Gate���and  the Skookum Chuck at the entrance  to Sechelt Inlet. The latter is  caused by the naturally narrow  channel blocked by numerous small  rocky islands." It is also shallower  than the rest of the iulet  Through this narrow . opening,  twice a day a-'huge volume of water  rushes into Sechelt Inlet and its  two arms. (Narrows Arm and  Salmon Arm) on the r;sing tides,  and rushes out again on the falling  tides. Owing to the narrowness and  shallowness of the Chuck the tides  inside the Rapids never bave time  to reach the maximum rise and fall  of those outside, by as much as two  feet or more.  Now there is �� timp about twice  a month when there is little difference betweeii high and low tide.  This is the neap tide.  Twice a month there, are extreme  highs and lows, or spring tides. To  negotiate the Chuck duri��g a neap  tide is no great feat���but during  a spring tide, when the water cut-  side the inlet may rise and fall over  .15 feet is something else again and  I don't know anyone foolish enough  to attempt it. During the run there  is a wall of water and foam and a  constant roar. At this tmie there is  practically no slack tide.  The average slack is 9 minutes,  and this is when most boats go  through. The tide book says, "For  high water slack, add 1 hr. 12 min.  to First Narrows slack, and for the  low- water slack, add. 1 hr. 35 min.  The velocity is 10 to 12 knots  maximum." So'm local people say  this is not reliable, that it depends  Thursday July 15, 1954 The   Coast  News  on the size of the run, and varies  anywhere from 1% to 3 hours on  the Sand Heads Tide Table. Also  a south-east storm makes a difference, by backing the water tip  the inlet.  Tugs   taking   out   rafts   of   logs,  break them up into six sections or  ! less.   They buck into the tide, ex-  j pecting to be somewhere about the  middle at slack, and then are more  or less pushed out the other side,  hoping   in   the   meantime   that   a  i whirlpool   or   riptide   won't   wrap  ' the logs around one of the islands.  i    It has often been the subject of  i speculation as to what would hap-  | pen to the Chuck if a canal were  cut at Sechelt.  i The fast water is a good place to  fish. Local sportsmen have rowed  out to the islands at slack water,  camped on one, and fished off the  island during the run. Some mar-  j velous photographs have been taken  this way, too.  Engineers say it would be.a wonderful source of hydro-electric  power if there were some way of  harnessing these reversible tide  falls.  Many tourists, travelling by boat,  pass this way. and admire the  beautiful scenery. Some day it is  hoped a road will give access to this  wonder of nature on. our B.C. coast.

Out of twelve fires in only one  case was the property a complete  loss. This was at Clarence Joe's on  the Reserve and had the alarm  been sounded fifteen minutes earlier  there is no doubt that the fire  could have been controlled. It is  suggested that the first person to  see an outbreak of fire turn in the  alarm either to the Telephone Office or the nearest telephone and  not leave it to George to do it.

One of the 661 entries by architects  in the International Calvert House  Competition, it won Honorable  Mention and ,$200 for its designer,  J. L. Lalonde, of Paris.  It now turns out that this 31-  year-old architect is a Canadian.  Currently engaged in designing a  UNESCO building in Paris, he received his early training in Canada.  Born in Montreal and a graduate of  Ecole des Beaux Arts there, he  took postgraduate studies in Lon  don before going to Paris.  A notable feature of Mr. La-  londe's design for this dwelling is  its good planning which separates  the family's sleeping quarters from  the livelier parts of the house.  Facing the entrance is the living room where provision is made  for dining and lounging space, and  a study which could be used as a  guest room.  Left of the entrance' and on the  north side is the large kitchen with  storage space and a utility room  that might be used as a laundry-  An outer door leads from the kitchen, by way of a covered shelter,  to tlie garage.  From the right of the main entrance runs the passageway to the  sleeping quarters. These consist  of the parents' bedroom from which  a door leads onto the garden, a  multi-purpose room, a children's  bedroom which ,may be made into  two by means of a folding door,  and a separate bedroom. Also in  this part of the house are the bathing and toilet facilities which,  divided among three rooms on the  north side of the passageway, are  ample for visitors as well as for  the family of grown-ups and children, i  B.C.S.T.A.  Convention  Annual convention of the British  Columbia School Trustees' Association this year is shaping up as one  of the most important in the long  history of the BCSTA.  The convention will be held at  Penticton September 29, 30th and  October 1st.  Deadline for resolutions from  member boards is July 31st.  School finance, teacher recruitment and curriculum will be leading subjects of resolutions and discussions.  Greater   importance   is   attached  to them this year than in many  years because of changes in government policy now being framed,  and their effect upon the B.C. public.  This   applies   particularly   to   fi- ]  nance and. curriculum.  Mrs., Ada Crump of Vancouver,  president of the BCSTA, pointed  out the Association is a partner in  current studies of curriculum and  finance hy the several .organizations affected; and is discussing  teacher recruitment with the B.C.  Teachers' Federation.

How   these   girls   do   get  around!  "We have difficult days ahead as  we endeavor to keep pace with the  rapid development of B.C. with its-  consequent population growth; and  at the same time try to make up  for the time lost in delayed school  construction during the 1930's and  the last war," she said.-  "It is a big job, and calls for the  best that each and every school  board in the province can offer."

Robert Pearson of North Vancouver, driving without due care  and attention, lost control of his  car, near Halfmoon Bay Lake,  struck a rock on the wrong side  of the road, causing damage of approximately $650.00 to the vehicle.  He was fined $20.00 and costs.  Illegal parking on Marine Drive  in Gibsons brought fines of two  dollars and costs to the following:  Roy Malyea of Gibsons, Wm. Robertson of North Vancouver, H. B.  Cocking of Vancouver, Thomas  Humphreys of Granthams Landing,  Mrs. Doris Dockerill of West Vancouver was excused costs of the  court.  PARKING   REGULATIONS  CONFUSION  R. M. Inglis pleaded 'Not Guilty'  to a charge of illegal parking in  Gibsons, when his vehicle was  parked practically parallel in front  of the School District Office, a region reserved for passenger cars  and half-ton trucks, which must observe the angle-parking regulations.  Sec. 10, Bylaw 95.  Mr. Inglis contended that since  he was unloading, he was rightful  in parking, and that he. had not,  parked at an angle, because he  would have blocked traffic. He  based his defence, on Section 1-L,  of Bylaw 95, which permits loading  and unloading.  Section 10 of this bylaw has subsections which cover exemptions,  under 1-L above. Under section 7  of the same bylaw, he would have  had to ask for a special permit  from the municipal clerk, and fur-  Which of these 7  Age-signs "make YOU  a       Feel Old?

Section 1-L, it seems, of  this Bylaw, is for momentary stops  only, and would not cover unloading of large consignments which  would consume considerable time,  without a special permit.  Because under section 7, only the  above mentioned small vehicles  are allowed to park at this spot, and  only temporary parking would have  been permitted, Mr. Inglis was  found guilty, and fined $2.00 and  costs.
