Phone 2 ��� Gibsons, B.C.  wnffir sss  On Aug. 17, over 120 property owners along the West  Sechelt highway, held a meeting in the School hall to be informed of the proposed water  system.  All present were in favor of  the proposition submitted by  the self-elected six persons  who have.been working on the  proposed project. They are  Graham Craig, Ray Cumberland, Jack Northcote, Ted  Fitzgerald,* Norman Franklin  and Roily Reid.  Mr. Franklin and Mr. Craig  outlined the details. Magistrate  Andy Johnston nominated the  six persons to act as a committee to continue the work  they had now under way. The  motion was carried unanimously. After an expression of  appreciation on behalf of the  property: owners toy-the magistrate the  meeting closed.  mm      hb     n��      n B    ���  Fall Fair exhi  praised by  Signposts  name roads  As of last week, roads, intersecting or^oining the highway  have {received white* markers  with, riames in black. In Roberts Creek district Crowe Road  has been named after the first  settler* Joseph Crow, but. with  an "E" added.  Orange Road, running north  from the highway, is named  for Frank Orange, tbe first resident oh that road, whose wife  taught- -in the Elphinstone  school about 1917 and travers-:  ed the distance to the school,  about \Wur miles, vhy horsia andk  : b u g g y,, ��� the neighborhood .  youngsters riding with her.  It is interesting to note that  when Orange Road crosses the  highway on its meandering  way to the Lower Road, it becomes Joe Road (formerly  School Road), probably named  for Joe Smith who claimed to  be the first permanent settler  in Roberts Creek, and whose  property was at the foot of the  road on the waterfront. Some  people suggest Joseph Smith  Avenue would be more suitable than Joe  Road.  Plan workshop  on ceramics  Mrs. H. Bernhof, president  of the 'Pottery Club at Roberts  Creek, has been advised by  the University of B. C extension department, arts and  crafts section, that Mr. Santo  Mignosa. distinguished sculptor and heramieist, will be giving workshops throughput the  province in September. Plans  are underway to engage him to  conduct a 3-day workshop at  Roberts Creek.  This -course comprises two  two-hour classes a day and is  open to both experienced cer-  amicists and beginners, at a  very nominal fee.  Those interested in ceramics  cannot afford to miss Mr. Mig-  nosa's expert instruction and  it is expected that many more  than the required number of  12 will  enroll for the course.  Top winners at this year's  Sunshine Coast Fall Fair were  Mrs. Cecil Chamberlin, Mrs.  H. Weinhandl and Mrs. P.  Strike. Details of their standing will be announced after  tabulations are complete.  Winning ticket for the door  prize Friday was blue number 346 and for Saturday red  number 198..So far the prize of  $10 on each ticket has not  been claimed. Holders of these  tickets should telephone Mrs.  M. LeFeuvre, secretary,, at  Gibsons 95F.  This year's fair suffered a  bit from the fact it was so  close to the big PNE event in  Vancouver which resulted in  some entries going to the PNE  instead of to the Sunshine  . Coast fair. ���  V In? spiteof the hot rainless  period leading up do the fair  the exhibits of flowers, fruits  ' and vegetables were surpris-  ingly^good^according*-id "Jibe.- re-  sharks of - the>ju<igeff wto-were';  'quite, impressed with the" ex-  m'bits they were udging.  One of the bright features  of this year's fair was the  commercial exhibits, chiefly  in the Elementary school. The  outstanding one was the B. C.  Electric electronic oven which  cooked hamburgers in less  than 90 seconds and hot dogs  too.! It hacl some people baffled because the heat from the  element only affected the ar-.  tcle to be cooked and did not  bake the reaper plate on which  the food was placed. More will  be said about the commercial  exhibits in the next issue.  In the Anglican Parish Hall  first item that struck the eye  on entering was Danny Propp's  photography which showed a  considerable development considering his age. Earl Alcock's  woodwork was pleasing to the  eye with the various, colorings  of wood integrated mto ornamental yet useful articles.  Photos by the , same exhibitor  were excellent,  too.  On th long side wall hung  the various art exhibits which  included; works by M. Lau,  R. T. Finlayson, Sandra Harding (brass), C G. Robinson,  Mrs. Mary Strom, J. Dowdie,  Mrs. V. E. Ttyner, Cyril H.  Fry and Kathleen Wells. A  chalk depiction of a young girl  by R. T. Finlayson struck  many people as being on the  exceptional side. It did look  alive.  Generally tlie art section, including oils, crayons! and other  entries were on the interesting  side. Awards will be announc  ed later. There were photos by(  A. R. West, chiefly scenic and  by Mrs. V. E. Tyner whose ex^  Mbit included pictures of pets.  Seme fine woolen products  were displayed along with a  wool spinning, machine being  demonstrated by Mrs. Fred  Fitiher.  The lapidary exhibit while  small was worth the space it  occupied and allowed the un"  initiated to obtain some.information about rock structure..  Rug-working was demonstrate  ed by Mrs- W. Handy and in;  the s'ame vicinity were ceramics, leather tooled products,:,  dells and other handicrafts.  The   entire   presentation   of A  was on the bright side and the  exhibits   in   the   Parish"   Hall,  fact the articles were not too  MORE THAN 250,000 people  applauded the Squarenaders  from Gibsons in the Pacific  National Exhibition opening  day parade.

Breakwater  to be fixed  �� The following information  has been supplied; the Coast  News by William H. Payne,  MP for Coast Capilano in a  letter  from  West   Vancouver.  "I have been advised by the  executive assistant to the minister of public works as follows:  "I wish to inform you of the  approval of the contract in favor of Evans Coleman and  Evans Ltd., Vancouver, B. C  in the amount of $12,390 for  breakwater repairs at Gibsons  Landing, B. C. Two tenders  were received.  "The work involved in this  fill along the breakwater  frames extending beyond the  wharf."  REGINA   VISITORS  Recent guests of the Hodg-  sons were Mr. and Mrs. C. H.  Koester from Regina and Mr.  and Mrs. L. Shand from Burnaby.  Emily Joan Hornel, 26, came  to her death by drowning in  the wheelhouse of the Unimak  between the hours of 12.05 and  3 a.m. on July 23. This was the  verdict of a coroner's jury on  Thursday of last week when  it heard evidence connected  with the tragedy in which  three others lost their lives.  The jury commended all individuals who took part in the  attempt to rescue those trapped in the upturned hull of  the derelict with what equipment was available.  Frederick Saunders of North  Vancouver was coroner. Jury  members were Jules Mainil,  foreman; Edward Feidler,  Lome Mason, Robert Carruthers, Len Coates and George  Cooper. RCMP showed movies  cf the beached vessel at Sechelt ih order to give the jury  an idea as.to the size of the  craft. Cpl. George Ruggies of  the RCMP conducted the enquiry with the coroner and  jury asking, questions as the  need arose.  First witness in the three-  hour hearing was Robert  George Peterson, Vancouver  fisherman and cook on the  Unimak. He reported the weather good with no wind. He  was stowing food in the galley  when he heard some scraping,  looked out and saw the Unimak ud against a barge. The  rail and hatches of the Unimak went under and a winch  on the loose came at him and  hurt one knee.  The captain and the girl  were in the wheelhouse as far  as he knew and the other two  crewmen were below in the  engine room. The boat had an  automatic pilot which wan not  in use. The craft started to  roll completely over so he  broke, away from  the   galley.  Questions brought out the  'fatt.be 'had: Sfac&VApxh: -before  leaving Vancouver, about five  bottles of beer but only one on  the Unimak. Two of the others  excluding the captain might  have had. some beer as well.  Peterson said he saw the captain about one minute before  the accident when he came to  the galley for coffee. He did  not know who was at the helm.  The Unimak steered good, he  told the jury.  It was at this point still pictures and movies of the Unimak and the Cape Flattery  and its tc-w were shown. Peter-  ion described parts of the Unimak from the pictures.  He said the Unimak was:  overtaking at about nine  knots. Other witnesses later  described the Cape Flattery's  speed with tow at about seven  knots. Peterson reported the  captain back at the wheel-  hcuce at about one-and-a-half  minutes before the collision.

That is the day the Hart  Hou��e orchestra will play in  Gibsons.  To bring this orchestra numbering 14 or more to this area  would cost something like  $3000 but a grant from the  Canada Council set up to stimulate cultural affairs makes it  possible for Overture Concerts  association to be able to present it. '  Owing to the closeness of  the date on which the orchestra, directed by Boyd Neel,  will be in Gibsons for its performance, members of Overture Concerts association are  now at work lining up members for the coming season.  There is a new family pac'K.  arrangement applying this  year which means that where  there are more than two children in the family, the toia��  ���covering the family would b<r-  lor the two adults and two  ' chirdreh' and" the remaining  children would be free.  In a later issue some details  of the pieces to be played by  this ifamoris Hjart House orchestra will toe given and ft  is expected the concert will  be the finest that has ever  been presented on the Sunshine Coast.  in the meantime help your  canvasser by phoning and making an appointment or drop in  at Dick McKibbin'si office and  make arrangements there foe  your season   membership.

Bi  raceweli discusses area transportation situation  Trio to Alaska  Mr. Alec Gordon, R.M.T. of  Belleville, Ont., and his brother Jack Gordon of Gibsons  have just returned from a  cruise to Alaska via the S.S.  Prince George. This week they  are in Vancouver and Victoria  as delegates to the 51st annual  convntion of the Royal Canadian College of Organists.  Mr. Alec Gordon is the director of music of a large United Church in Belleville and is  accompanist, of. the Belleville  Choral Society. He is also supervising teacher at the Ontario School for the Deaf in that  city.

Christmas tea  plans started  The monthly meeting of the  Auxiliary to the H. I. D. Organization was held on Monday Aug. 15 at the home . of  Mrs. Ray Whiting.  The group discussed plans  for a Christmas tea which will  be held on Friday Dec. 9 at 8  p.m. in the Anglican Church  hall.  More people are urged to attend the next meeting and join  the group. Everyone is welcome. Notice of the next meeting will be posted at a later  date.  NO  SPACE  Heavy    political   advertising has  curtailed  news  space  this week.  As promised in last week's  issue here are the speeches  made at the Social Credit  meeting, Tuesday night, Aug.  17 when Hon. E. C. Westwood,  minister of recreation and conservation spoke along with  Vince Bracewell, Mackenzie  riding  Social  Credit  nominee.  In opening remarks Mr.  Bracewell said the eyes of  Canada, United States and  Europe were on the B. C. election with responsible men  in business and industry awaiting the outcome.  . Unemployment in this province was not unique because  it was nationwide and he added "when we decided to follow John in the last federal  election we did not realize we  would have to walk barefoot."  The provincial government  alone cannot foot the unemployment bill and the only  real, cure was .more industry  and the expansion of existing  business. This the government  was doing, Mr. Bracewell said.  To help out it was in the municipal winter work program  contributing 25 percent of labor costs.  Mr. Bracewell went on with  statistics showing the general  improvement in business and  also showing that labor income  was up 5 percent over the same  period last year.  During school days the three  R's were a dominant factor  but in Mackenzie riding the  three T's were essential, Timber, Tourism and Transportation. Timber provided B. C.  with its largest income and  policies of the Social Credit  government had done much  towards a high level of production with a sustained yield  policy. He showed how in 1952  only 10.8.percent of the annual cut came from managed  areas but by 1959 the percentage had increased to 46.8 percent. In 1952 tree farm licenses covered 1.9 million acres  while today there are 11.7 million acres under such tenure.  The  1952 public working cir  cles totalled 5.8 million acres  while today the total is 36.1  million acres.  In order.to encourage waste  utilization the government was  encouraging establishment of  pulp mills where possible and  as a result th^ allowable cut  could be increased. This would  add to employment and establish the whole sawmill industry on a more economic base.  But this "policy presented a  problem for the small logger  which Mr. Bracewell said he  would make one of his prime  interests to find a solution for  if he were elected. He was of  the opinion there should be  some adjustment to truck licenses where tlie operator was  crossing a public highway.  Last year's tourist industry,  the third largest for the province totalled $106 millions.  With proper facilities this riding could benefit considerably.  It was up to the tourist indus1-  try to provide the necessary  motels and such like. Skin diving could be featured because  the fish are there and water  temperature   in  winter   would  not matter too much.  As regards transportation,  as transportation expands, so  will the economy of the area.  Blacktopping of the road from  Kleindale to Garden Bay hospital has been completed 'and  the Roberts Creek Lower Road  will be next with Gower Point  road to follow. Blacktopping is  being done by local employees  of the roads department. This  program is aimed at hard surfacing all roads in B. C. at an  approximate cost of one billion  dollars.  Most recent road pushed  through was the Park road on  Sechelt Highway from Galley's  tc Reid Road past Brothers  Memorial Park. Granthams  area has been surveyed including the dangerous bridge area.  Mr. Bracewell added that he  understood a similar survey  would be conducted in Hopkins  Landing area. North road has  been widened and improved to  near the Otto Giersh property  and most dirt roads have received an oil coating to reduce  dust.  (Coniinued on Page 10) 2    Coast News, Aug. 25, 1960.

Fire Protection  A fire siren startles everyone; thoughts of red trucks, lines  of hose, men in black waterproofs and billowing smoke run  through the mind. But the excitement over, fire protection becomes the problem of someone else ��� until the siren shrieks  again.  A look at the communities of the Sechelt Peninsula reveals  fire protection ranging from adequate to none at all. Apart from  the industry-supported brigade in Port Mellon and the village  supported department in Gibsons, two fire departments ��� Gibsons area and Sechelt and area, covering two heavily built-up  communities are supported almost entirely by donations of  money from their residents. Pender Harbour has made a beginning with portable pumps whereas Roberts Creek and perhaps  other areas are at present unprotected.  Manning all these fire brigades are the volunteer firemen  who train and answer calls as a service to the public. But trucks,  buildings and upkeep cost money and where Sechelt firemen  this year report sufficient funds collected for this purpose, the  Gibsons area society shows exactly the opposite. Enterprises  supported by public subscription, it would seem, lead a precarious life. There are those people who donate and those who don't  donate, and the latter outnumber tlie former.  For the areas outside the villages an alternative to this uncertain method of financing fire protection is the forming of an  improvement district under Section 50 of the Water Act. Under  this section a rural residential area of any size can be authorized  to organize a street-lighting system, for example, or a waterworks, a sewage disposal, or a fire department, to toe financed  through the property taxes.  Increased taxes! A little balm for this cut has been found  in areas which have pioneered this system where, because of  the sound state of fire protection insurance companies have reduced their premiums.  The organizing, of an improvement district is not aocom-  iplished in a day. Publicity, petitions, plebiscite, proclamation,  election are the main technical steps but throughout there must  ibe a knowledgable public which wants and intends to have this  improvement. Meanwhile fire protection, especially in the Gibsons area, which extends from Langdale to the cemetery, must  limp along on the trickle of donations or paid memberships, the  day fast approaching when a fire call cannot be answered because there is no gasoline in the fire trucks. ��� G. A. C.  Transportation an issue  If one can go by what transpired at the first Social Credit  public meeting in Gibsons the main political issue for this area  could be the ferry system and the highway to Squamish.  Once the speeches by Mr. Bracewell and Hon. Mr. West-  wood were polished off and the question period began there was  no doubt about what could be an interesting issue for audiences  ;at Social Credit meetings.  Mr. Bracewell in his initial campaign speech showed pro-  anise as a speaker. He does not grope for words. He has a cheerful countenance generally and seems to be leaning towards a  smile while speaking, which could be of use to him when under  stress.  One can suppose that Mr. Westwood came over to support  Mr. Bracewell because Mr. Westwood's speech did not go beyond  what is already known. He made no statement which could be  regarded as an election promise, except that he hoped to get the  Keats Island marina ready for next season. Work was to have  started on it some time ago according to previous utterances but  the political tomorrow knows no bounds as a time factor.  It is true the ferrp system and the road to Squamish are fac-  1!ors in this area and the two issues could be none too comfortable  for any government candidate. At the same time is does not  Bound quite right for a candidate to be too emphatic about saying the voters should elect a government candidate over an opposition member if the area wants something done. There must be  another way of putting it.  My boy is as smart as a whip! Yes sir,a  regular chip off the old block. Why, already  he's saving his money so he can go to college.  That's right. Yes sir, a chip off the old block.  Wouldn't be surprised if he gets to be a big  star on the football team. He's just like the  old man. Now, boy, tell 'em where you're  saving your money.

TRUCK LOGGERS WIN  The Truck Loggers' Association  of Vancouver, B.C., was today  named a winner of the U.S. National Safety Council's Association Award for 1960.  It was one of 10 associations,  representing various industries  in the United States and Canada,  cited by the Council for excellence and balance in its  safety  programs and above-average progress in accident prevention.  The Truck Loggers' Association reduced its disabling injury  frequency 39 percent in the last  five years, and 16.54 percent last  year alone. It was cited for a  members' safety activities, col-  continuing program of surveying  lecting accident statistics, publishing injury rates.  INBOARD CLINKER BUILT BOATS FOR HIRE  next to Wakefield Inn, 2 miles Wjest of Sechelt  Wakefield Boat Rentals  Phone Sechelt 80Y  Canada held in high esteem  by quake stricken Chileans  "The Canadian Red Cross Society and Canadians have never  been held in higher esteem than  here in troubled Chile." So writes  Reuben C. Baetz, national director of disaster services of the  Canadian Red Cross in a report  received from him recently from  Santiago.  Mr. Baetz and Richard H.  Gluns, also widely experienced  in international disasters, are  now serving as delegates of the  League of Red Cross Societies in  earthquake-torn Chile. "The total  Canadian effort is being recognized" here in a very big way,*'  continued Mr. Baetz. "We talked  to people who had just come  from a movie where RCAF  planes, Canadian Red Cross disaster relief supplies, and Canadian personnel were shown.  They said the whole theatre  audience stood up and applauded  for over five minutes at the sight,  right through other news items."  This is a measure of the appreciation expressed by the  people of Chile for the help exr  tended by_ Canadians through  their Red Cross, the federal government, and the RCAF and Canadian Pacific Airlines which  have airlifted many tons of re-"  relief supplies from Canada. The  value of Red Cross relief supplies alone amounted to more  than $60,000.  "Not only did Canadian Red  Cross supplies arrive in Chile  very early, but they went very  quickly to the heart of the disaster situation. The Canadian  Red Cross aid was the first international Red Cross help to arrive in the disaster area," said  Mr. Baetz. "The RCAF, with its  North Stars, has done a tremendous job, making at least 20  flights between Santiago and  Puerto Montt, 500 miles to the  south, airlifting Canadian Red  Cross and other disaster supplies  on the way down, and carrying  refugee disaster victims- on return flights."  In a letter from Dick Gluns of  LETTERS  to editor  Editor: Aside from the differences in political views and  opinions held and expressed in  your paper and by my self, your  editorials are thought provoking.  Mr. Tal Haan has shown most  of us Canadians the errors of our  ways. If we cherish the liberty  of choosing representatives in  government, we needs must concern ourselves accordingly.  And there is nothing free today, even pork! We used to say  "Free Enterprise," now we say  "Private Enterprise." JTfoere is a  difference which can vary according to the elected government.  Hence we must concern ourselves  with the management of our affairs.  HAROLD HUNTER.  Editor: Just another tourist  who has come, seen and been  conquered by the beauties of  your peninsula and I vow I will  be back at the earliest possible  date to look for my Shangri-la.  A dozen copies of your newspaper with that article (Her  Shangri-la by Mrs. L. R. Linton,  July 14) have been sent to relatives and friends all over North  America.

Mystery trip  takes in garden  On a mystery trip Sunday  Aug. 8, some 20 members of  OES called at the home of  Len and Betty Allen to admire  and enjoy their beautiful gar-,  dens which, while many others  are parched and colorless, remains moist and lush * aniict'  deep green lawns.  This little gem settled iii a  turn of the road on the Sechelt  Highway is like a miniature  well kept park' and one is hard  put to it to decide which portion of it deserves the greatest admiration.  Everywhere was evidence of  the Allen artistry, from the  many hanging baskets of perfect begonias of all colors  which framed the front of the  house, to the pool with ijs  curved rustic bridge watched  over toy a graceful "Tree'of  Heaven."  Leaving the Aliens, the party proceeded to the E. J. Shaw  home and there again came ..expressions of admiration as the  members entered the green  house and came upon another  collection of begonias.  Later in the house, a trip  through the interior of B.C.  was enjoyed via camera, projector and screen. These pictures were taken by Mr. and  Mrs. R. Eades on their recent  1,800 mile trip and showed  many bea'uty ipots.  The OES annual picnic took  place at Elphinstone Park on  Aug. 7 and was well attended.

It may take plan-  ning.patience and considerable  time to use their help in answering an appeal for clothing. Nevertheless, boys and girls are missing a character-building force  in their lives if they are' never  brought face to face with the  misery of others and given a little supervision and encouragement in doing what they can to  lessen the suffering of less fortunate individuals.  *    ssj    **�����  Clean, used clothing, in good  repair, is constantly being requested by welfare groups for  use in Canada and overseas."  A church calendar notice requested good used clothing for  children in Korea under 14 at  a meeting sponsoring the Save  the Children Fund.  In your own community, there  are urgent appeals for clothing  donations. If a busy mother is to  respond to this-, she must have  the  co-operation of her  family.  How can she get this? Sons  and daughters are busy too. They  are told w*b<y clothes are needed  and where they will be used.  *J> rk_r%* *.T*  ���Y*** *l* ���V"  Some boys, and most girls, will  be willing to search for the  articles of their own clothing  which they have outgrown, become tired of, or do not need,  ancl which they would be glad  to donate. Boys witn bicycles  may be able to give volunteer  time" Jin collecting clothes arid  taking them to the central room  where sorting, packing and shipping for the community is being  done. The help of older teenage  girls- in these centres may be  much appreciated.

Only 25c  By  Nancy Cleaver  Copyrighted  Some    of   the   torn, worn or  patched garments for grownups  might^be made over into clothes  for children. A man's trousers  worn at the seat can be remodelled into a small boy's pants. This  remodelling all takes time and  thought. Girls who are old  enough to care for their own  wardrobe can assist in the washing, mending and pressing necessary to put used clothing in as  good shape as possible.  It might be a good idea for the  motfter with school-age children  to list on a sheet of paper the  tasks which fill her days ��� preparing meals, washing dishes,  making beds, cleaning, washing,  ironing, looking after a baby too  perhaps-. Her children can easily  understand when it is presented  to them in this way, that if mother is to have time to hunt up,  wash, mend and press the "articles  of clothing she wants to give  away- she must have help from  them in this extra special task.  *����    'f    **}���  An alternative plan would be  for a son or daughter to volunteer to take over some one of  mother's regular tasks in order  to give her more free time for  this special task. A daughter  might well assume greater responsibility for meal preparation,  and thereby gain valuable experience, or a son help in the  weekly cleaning through the  house.  The busy people in the world  are happy people. A boy or girl  will derive real satisfaction in  taking some little part all their  own in the family's response to  tills appeal for clothing for needy  men and women and little children in our own communities or  far away.

Lund and island hopping  to Campbell River. He thought  this would provide a wonderful scenic route for tourists.  Howe Sound problems drew  from Mr,. Bracewell three projects in a progressive plan to  provide adequate service. The  first was tc add another ferry  for summer traffic. The second was a shuttle service using Gamibier Island between  two ferries, one from Langdale to Gambier, then a road  to Brigade Bay thence to the  other side*. This could provide  a faster and cheaper route and  open up property on Gamibier  Island.  Number three suggestion  ���was to provide a causeway or  bridge from Gospel Rock  across Shoal Channel to Keats  Island which would afford protection for Keats and Gibsons  shipping and give Keats people  access to Gibsons.  For future consideration Mr.  Bracewell suggested a high  level bridge from Keats to  Bowen Island and from Bowen to West Vancouver, thus replacing existing ferries. This  would provide a Trans-Canada  direct route .in which the federal government could share.  This plan, he said, is in line  with modern thinking involving a highway as far as Kitimat then a ferry from there  to Alaska. ';  Concluding, Mr. Bracewell  said that in order to implement  these ideas this riding must be  removed from the opposition  side of the legislature. "We  need a man who will worfc  with your government and not  against  it," he said. ' 'c  Mr. Westwood on development of recreation facilities  said he hoped to have the  Keats Island marina completed before next summer ahd he  expected it would be one of  the finest on the coast. Gibsons  needed a good breakwater because of the heavy boat traffic and the heavier traffic t6  come. There were now about  50,000 boats registered in British Columbia. Pleasure boating is no longer a rich man's  pleasure. People are getting  tired of riding bumper to  bumper on highways.  The attraction of tourists tp  this province and with: them  new capital, was a necessity.  The government planned to  open a tourist office in California in order to spread information more rapidly.  A winter works program was  set up to establish camps oil.  the Trans-Canada Highway jn  order to give Canadians a better chance to see more of CanV  ad a and to help draw tourists  as well. *   '    .'.  There were 180 developed  campsites in the province with  2,700 camp units and 4,500 pic^  nic tables set up. In 1952^  365,000 persons visited these  sites and in 1959 more than  2,700,000 came. This means ari  ordinary working man can nov^  go on an adventurous trip  through this province at little  cost.  Dwelling on the Sunshine  Coast area briefly Mr. West-  wood said there would be extensions of Brothers Memorial  Park at Gibsons also at Sal-  tery Bay park and further developments were planned ori  the Ruby-Sakinaw lakes.  Access to properties was the  major problem he said. A committee had been set up to study  it. If the department can get  over this sticky question a  considerable amount of land  could be opened to. the public  In the question period Mr.  Westwood was*;, asked about a  medical health plan and he  said the government in 1957  had asked Ottawa to put such  a scheme into effect. If the  federal government would  help he saw no reason why  British Columbia would not go  into it.  Mr. Bracewell's idea for a  bridge across to Keats Island  was criticized by one questioner but Mr. Bracewell said he  was not able to develop the  engineering method but was  expounding on an idea for future consideration.  A better ferry service and  the road to Squamish came to  the fore through questions and  Mr. Bracewell as regard ferry  service said he felt Mr. Gaglardi was fully aware of the  situation because he had told  Black Ball Ferries to pull up  its siocks. He thought something would be done by the  time the next tourist season  came around. A questioner sug  gested Mr. Gaglardi should  have done something about it  because he has known of the  situation for a long time.  There were questioners who  supported the road in prefer- .  ance to ferries. There were  alsiD others who were of the  opinion Black Ball Ferry service was not so bad after all  because there were times when  traffic was very light. Normal  service was described as ade-  PU1 PEOPLE FIBSI  Return Our Power  Resources to the  People of B.C!

Mr.  Westwood explained that entry of the Tsawwassen ferry  into operation had not affected Black Ball's Nanaimo travel any more than 10 percent  so no ferry was available from  that run at present.  It was at this point the question of inviting Mr. Gaglardi  to apeak here was raised and  Mr. Bracewell said he wodld  try and get him.  SPECIAL at  T.
