Lightning cuts power  in Halfmoon Bay area  Lightning struck a transformer at Halfmoon Bay about 11:45  Sunday night thus creating an  outage." It blew out a transformed and resulted in an added burden of work for B.C. Hydro repair crews who worked long  hours to.ge'tfthe damage righted;  Up to' 8 _i.m. Tuesday morning, the snowfall starting with  Thursday Dec. 23 deposited  43% inches over the Gibsons  area, according to Dick Kennett, 7local weather statistician.  At the 300 foot level, 'Sunshine  Coast highway in,vicinity of Elphinstone Secondary school the  snow depth at noon Tuesday was  estimated, at about 30 inches.  To the end of December the  snowfall amounted to 22V�� in.  and since then 21 inches were  added up to 8 a.m. Tuesday.  The day to day snowfall as  recorded by Mr. Kennett follows:  B.C. Hydro men working to get  power, through as quickly as  possible.  Because Port Mellon usually  gets more precipitation than  areas nearer Georgia Strait it  might appear unusual to leam  that Port Mellons snowfall was  20Mj inches for December and  23 inches up to 8 a.m. Tuesday,  a total of 43V_: inches equalling  the Gibsons fail.

RCMP have been  kept busy watching road traffic  and the roads department has  done a good job in keeping main  arteries open with SMT buses  travelling practically on schedule most of the time.  Some power outages were  caused by snow piling up on the  wires to the point where contacts have been made resulting ,  in short circuits. Bob Normin.-  ton, his office staff anil repair ::  crews put in a considerable  1 number of hours finding "breaks;  short circuits and other troubles and putting things back in  working order.

"The Coast News and your letter arrived on Christmas Eve  and were wonderful to have,  and.Margaret and Eddy Toma  arrived today, so it is nice to  have friends to ski with."  So writes Willie Thomson in  a letter dated December 27, received Monday. Margaret Toma  is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs.  Robert Finlayson, of Gower  Point and is now resident near  Frankfurt, West Germany. The  Toma family planned to have  Christmas in Vienna, and then  join the Thomson family in St.  Anton, iri the Austrian Alps, for  a skiing holiday.  The Coast News was the Christmas number and contained the  article "A Thomson in Europe"  contributed by William.  News from home is good in  a far country,- and what can be  better than to share the Coast  News there, with someone else  from here? It shows what can  be done with air mail, for it  took just under a week for Willie's article to go the two miles  from Hopkins Landing to Gibsons by ordinary mail.  NEW  MINISTER  Rev. R.

Unity in the Community geh things done  A solution is necessary  The annual report of Gibsons municipal clerk which appeared  iri last week's Coast News contains considerable fundamental  thought on the problem of the direction in which Gibsons should  move, not only in the field of capital expenditure, but in its zoning  as well.     !' ������- , -..,   ���'- .������;'-.!..-!.V-j:.'. ���".-r_.  Capital expenditure will become, a necessity and his five year  plan is worthy of consideration because too heavy an assessment  on the public in a shorter space of time would perhaps not be successful. However) it is the zoning aspects; of his Tepoift which wilt  ���  face closest'scrutiny. /;���..:���: ; 'py.' yy'ry. pOy'^ .'yy.'-'  He asks that hodge-podge zoning be eliminated and that there  be more uniformity in the area he has in mind, the harbor front.  There is the natural assumption that it will not and cannot forever  remain partly commercial and partly residential. What are we  planning for our waterfront? If to develop small boat traffic well  and good and if not what can be done about it?  We-quote his report: "The future of the existing village area  is centred in the harbor and waterfront and the development of the  village depends upon the development and uses of the waterfront.:  The land 'area being, small is not conducive to a mixture of indus-.  trial, commercial and residential uses and only a hodge-podge unattractive growth will result if some form of guidance or control is  not instituted. Council should therefore consider upon what the future growth of the village is likely to depend and plan and rezone  .accordingly.' ^^        -..''._.. v  * Jf an opinion poll was taken on the question how' should Gifo-  -sons develop its waterfront and harbor, the answer would most  likely leave those people holding shoreline residential property  displeased, to say the least.  1 On looking over the 1966 municipal council for 'Gibsons one  comes up with the knowledge that the new chairman has consistently favored the building of an esplanade type waterfront. The  four councillors who have sat on council as a unit for four years  while liking the idea of an esplanade have not felt that there would  ever be such realization. With increasing water traffic and faster  craft the use of the harbor, while within the jurisdiction of council,  is not an area to be bluntly allocated land uses only. So the problem arises what shall foe done with it and how will it be done?  It will take council some time to get this problem solved because the subject of zoning is not a simple matter of making up the  mind of council. It also includes the public. Utilitarianism will eventually take over but how to live with the problem in the meantime will -require the wisdom of a Solomcm.  In the meantime and due to the shortage of Solomons the council will have to be placed in the position of seeking outside help.  In view of the fact the department of -municipal affairs has its  hands full of similar problems council will seek that help from  whatever source it can. Campbell River after fruitless months of  seeking town planning advice has hired a town planning consultant  who is at present town planner for Comox and Gold River. It'looks  as though Gibsons may have to do the same.  Mr. Cooding in his report to council stressed that town planning is a job for a professional planner. If Cibsons is to get the  zoning problem settled it looks as though some outsider will have  to be called in, someone not involved in local issues who will 'be  objective .It might cost money but carrying on without a policy  will in the long run cost a great deal more.  If anyone thinks Gibsons councillors have been neglecting this  issuCover the last two or three years such is not the case. There  have been hopes glimmering faintly that perhaps the provinteial  town planning department would help out but this department has  more planning problems on its hands due to the rapid growth of  British Columbia than it can handle. The problem can remain  dormant for a while but the longer it takes to get the issue solved  the more difficult the solution could become. There is the possibility that given time it might solve itself. This is a chance hope  only; and not one to be recommended. Council, will have to face  up to the issue and it might as well face It now.  (By TONY GARGRAVE,  Mackenzie   Constituency   MLA)  y The   Mackenzie   riding  js   a'  narrow part of British Columbia's    coast    stretching    south  from   Bowen   Island  to   Ocean  Falls for a distance of approximately 280 miles  long and 50  miles wide. In the 1963 provincial  election   it   contained   15,-  452 registered voters in 55 dif-,  ferent  pollsr The  larger  com:,  muni ties v are   the   Bella   Coola 7  valley,   Texada,   Bowen,   Gambier and Minstrel Islands and  the  pulp  and  paper  towns of  Powell River, Ocean Falls and  Woodfibre.  and   Port   Mellon.

Three-quarters of the population of the riding reside" within the lower 80 miles of. its  length and that area is accessible by automobile.  The voters are mostly industrial workers in the pulp-.and  paper industry with the next  largest group of voters being  retired people living on the Sunshine Coast. The rest of the  riding is made up of loggers  and fishermen. Ten percent of  , the voters are Native Indians.  ���        *      *     #  The riding, appears to have  had a noble and significant his- '  tory.

At the next general election Mr. , Mel- Bryan, Sr. was  elected. Mr. Mel Bryan died  in office and was succeeded at  a 1940 by-election by Many Mc-  Geer, brother of the' late Gerry  McGeer. They were members  .. of the Liberal party.  In the general election of  1941 Mr. Herbert Gargrave  was elected. He was a member  of the CCF party and remained MLA until 1949. Af the general election of. 1949 Mr. Bat  Mclntyre was elected MLA. He  was a member of the coalition.  At the general elections of  1952, 53, 56, 60 and 63 the writer, Anthony Gargrave, was \ returned to the legislature as a  member of the New Democratic party.  The riding, though rural in  appearance, has been industrial in character. The largest  community is the Powell River.'  district which represents 5,000  voters.  *.-'-.*.    _*  The riding is named after  Alexander Mackenzie who  came down . the Bella ' Coola  valley in the 18th Century. The  riding has no geographic, economic or communication .centre  as such. The riding is tied together byMts links by sea, air,  road and . tele-coihmunications  with the City of Vancouver.  The never ending political  theme throughout the riding is  one of communication. My constituents are continually demanding better roads, better  sea and air routes, better ferry  facilities and better tele-com-  "munications. A second common'  interest iri the riding is labor  affairs and labor management  relations. This arises out of the  dominant occupation of the riding, the manufacture of pulp  and paper.  *.:. # . #  The relatively new highway  system linking Port Mellon,  Gibsons, the Sechelt Peninsula  and Powell River by road and  ferry has greatly eased the  task of a provincial MLA.  I would recommend to the  commission that no changes be  made- in the boundaries of the  Mackenzie riding. It seems to  be a genuine geographic and  economic unit and it appears  to have a suitable number of  voters compared to the province as a whole (one MLA to  17,000 votes). The number of  voters in. the riding has been  climbing at each general election.: ��� ..;'���-.'.  These recoriimendatioris and  observations are respectfully  submitted to the comriiissibn as  an aid to its deliberations.  A     three - man     commission  which met in Powell River to  CHIROPRACTIC OFFICE  MONDAY &   THURSDAY  1678 Marine Drive���Gibsons  Phone 886-9843  discuss proposed " changes to  Mackenzie riding:"was comprised of Chairman H. F: Angus,  arid members Frederick Hurley  and Kenneth Morton. ;  Meeting in, ''the,, provincial'  building . courthouse; the committee heard "briefs from MLA  Tony Gargrave, Mrs. .Isabel  Dawson, Bert Forrest, all  speaking on behalf of their political parties, and J. S. P. Johnson, speaking for the PR Chamber of Commerce.  Proposed changes were few  in number and will be reviewed  thoroughly before any action is  taken. Although none of the  briefs presented advocated any  changes to the present riding  boundaries, some districts expressed a desire to change.  Other, ridings already interviewed had'also proposed, changes that would' affect Mackenzie. Of the former, the Ariahim  Lake region felt they had more  in common with the Williams  Lake region than the coast, and  Lasqueti Island felt closer to"  Vancouver Island than the mainland.      -  Of the latter, the Comox-area  proposed1 a change in- its boundaries involving a \ north-south  split, with Ocean Falls, presently in the Mackenzie riding, being attached' to the north island.  Woodfibre and Bowen Island,  also in Mackenzie, seemed.geographically close to North and  West Vancouver areas, while  Squamish appeared to be better  linked with a coastal riding than  to its present interior one.  In her remarks, Mrs. Isabel  Dawson, president of Mackenzie Social, Credit League said  she shared MLA Tony Gar-  grave's view that boundaries  should- remain unchanged. She  did. have one qualifying' statement to make, though, that  should the need arise- of changing the riding, she would like  the name Mackenzie to be retained.  The riding is named after  Alexander Mackenzie who  came down the Bella Coola valley in the 18th century.  Mrs. Dawson was followed by  J. S. P. Johnson, speaking for  the Powell River Chamber of  Coinmerce. He, 'too, felt the  boundaries-should remain pretty much as they now are, f but  recommended- that whichever  riding acquires Woodfibre or  Squamish, the two communities  should be put together and kept  in" the same riding.  Third brief presented during  the hearing came from Bert  Forrest on behalf of the Liberal  party.  He felt more consideration  should be given to urban areas  and ended ,his brief by saying  he would rather see the riding  slightly oyer the population average than under.  Mackenzie /Riding had a 51  percent average of voters going  to the polls, as against a provincial average of 54.  N.

Wherever agriculture is a  major source of: income Conservative -Mr. P.'s are elected to  a nian. The .Liberal party, on  the other hand, seems to be-  the party of the big city dweller. It also attracts the vote  of most business and professional men. Montreal^ Toronto  and Vancouver are therefore  strongholds of .liberal support  so, to, a. lesser extent, , are  Hamilton^ Ottawa, Windsor and  Victoria.  The New Democratic party  has an industrial base'��� one  however which is confined  largely to Ontario and B.C.  Typically, the NDP1 does well  in big single industrial, towns  like Trail, Sudbury and Powell  River. But whether it can win-  over a majority of the working  class vote in other provinces,  like the prairies, Quebec and  the Maritimes remains to be  seen.' :  .*������ .   *  *  Social Credit,has been said  to- be an off shoot of the Con-  .servative .party in the west. I  mention this because, wherever  the Socreds ran a candidate  they ;took more votes away  from the Conservatives than  any other party, p  The Creditiste are essentially  a party of protest. Most of  them have been elected in the  backward arid.7other low., in-,  come areas of 'Quebec. As economic conditions improve, they  fortunes of 'that party may continue to decline.  Age also has something to  do with the voting pattern.  Many young people prefer the  Liberals. So do those in their  40's and 50's who are also iri  . the middle or higher income  bracket. After 60 however, the  Conservative party has the  greatest appeal. Witness the  effect of Mr. Diefenbaker's  $100 a month pension proposal  in provinces with an ageing  population like Prince Edward  Island.  *     *     *  Looking ahead our national  parties will be forced to recognize two things. One is the  continuing drift of Canadians  to the big cities. Another is  the population bulge, the hundreds of thousands of young  Canadians who will be reaching  voting .-age in the late 1960's.  Redistribution (which will increase the number of city ridings) and lowering the voting  age to 18, will give added  emphasis to these trends.  On the face of it this means  more seats for the Liberals and  the NDP. But other factors like  changes in leadership and new  party platforms can be even  more important. What influence  these other factors will have  on public opinion when the next  federal election rolls around in  four years from now, of course,  remains to be seen.  l.��v  Mcwiom.**  Xo'oJcs like a filibuster I"  The Canadian " Forestry .association announces the formation of the Conservation fund.

It nnishes, up snug against the Gibsons  Bank of Montreal vault. The mishap occurred Friday at about  9 a.m. when the trailer .truck entering from the" highway intended to make a half-turn to get to the rear of the Elphinstone Co-op  store for delivery of a grocery shipment. The front section made  the turn but the trailer decided to slither on its path. Minor  cracks appeared in the stucco, wall and the metal cornice on top  of the vault section was crushed somewhat. Aided bygsome gravel  shovelled by Fred Holland the truck- and trailer!' were soon  straightened out and headed in the right direction.

Canada's people are the nation's greatest resource. Knowledge "of -know-how is the essence of that resource in economic-terms.-How it is nurtured  and how it expands and develops is bf the utmost concern to Canada, as a whole.  Expressed in political and constitutional terms, education  should therefore be regarded  as "a matter for the general  advantage of Canada."   /  Unfortunately our constitution, as laid out in the British  North America act, reads  otherwise. It says quite specifically that education is a mat-,  ter for the provinces. It says  that the provinces,-individually,  and separately, should care for  the tuition of the. ybungl' It  also implies that instruction, at  ED HEDLER  Custom Tractor Work  & Back Hoe  TOP SOIL ��� FILL ��� GRAVEL  Ph. 886-7764  Wiring,: Electric: Heating  Appliance Repairs  NICK'S ELECTRIC & APPLIANCES  Pender Harbour      7  Phorie 883-2516 evenings  '; tR.R;1., Madeira Parle  -y- We use  Ultra   Sonic   Sound   Waves  to'clean your/watch  -  7 "and Jewelry/'  'MailOrders     y  Given Prompt Attention  y / Ph.Z'Sechelt  885-2151  ,  A.1RIKHE1T  TRACTOR WORK  Clearing, Grading, Excavating,- Bulldozing,   Clearing  teeth:  FOR  RENTAL  Arches, Jacks, Pumps  Air Compressor, Rock Drill  Concrete Vibrator  Phone 886-2049  L & H SWANSON LTD.

One, is that most people  outside of Quebec now believe  that Ottawa should' become increasingly .involved in such  matters .as vocational training  and the ��� financing of our universities. The other, and equally pressing reason, is1 that our  provincial premiers have again  been rushing to Ottawa with  hat in"hand. They have been  demanding more, money. They  do not want .to raise the additional-taxes for education themselves. But they want a free  hand to spend vast sums on the  construction of new educational facilities and the operation  of new-centres of learning.

Much better advice comes from Ted. Henniker and  Ernie Booth, managers of the Gibsons and Sechelt  branches of the Bank of Montreal. "Keep your valuables  really safe in a B of M safety deposit box," they say.  "Your personal strong box, exclusively yours, costs less  than two cents a day, and it pays for itself over and over  again in peace of mind alone," they add.  Hundreds of thousands of Canadians use B of M  safety deposit box facilities. Their valuables ��� bonds,  leases, stock certificates, insurance policies, deeds, birth  certificates, passports and other important family papers  ��� are safe and sound behind the steel doors of the B of  M vault.

Having survived the relatively difficult first year, at  one year of age, a boy may  on the average expect to live  to age 70.8, and a girl to age  . 77, This represents a gain for  a boy of 1.9 years more than  his expectation at birth, and  1.6 years for a girl.  Young adults can also expect to live longer, thanks to  progress in life conservation.  During the 30 years between  1931 and 1961, the average remaining lifetime among British-Columbia males at age 20  increased 3.2 years. Among fe.  males at age 20 it increased  6.4 years.  The improvement in life expectancy is due mainly to the  substantial reduction in recent  years of 'infant mortality and  deaths from infectious diseases,  the association states. ,  On the other hand, diseases  associated with middle and old  age are much less amenable to  control.
