 Provincial Li-braryV  Victoria,   B.   C;  SERVING   THE   GROWINiG   SUNSHINE   COAST  Published  at Gibsons,   B.C.  Phone 886-2622  Volume  22  Number 46, December-3, 1969  10c per copy  Gibsons water pact enables  Regional board start extension  Phase one contract with H.B.  Construction was extended to  include phase _ two. ��� Phase one  was from Davis Bay to Roberts  Creek. Pliase two is from Roberts Creek to the Gibsons water supply.  . The Regional board arranged  to purchase Gibsons surplus  water,, beyond village needs,' for  the-Regional district system.  Water .was a prominent feature a��_ Friday night's meeting  of the, Surtshine Coast Regional  district, board. Here is what  happened:.        -       ,  A'r Regional" District committee.'will be set to work towards  starting a one million gallon  reservoir as soon as possible.  The Regional board also de  cided to extend the deadline for  applications for a water connection on a $25 discount basis  from the end of November to the  end of December. To date there  have been 120 applications. By  having the connection put in  now instead of later when the  area would have to be dug,up  the applicant saves $25 on the  $150 normal connection fee.  Another important factor concerned the Sechelt Water system. Secretary Charles Gooding  reported that the. arbitratfom  hearings on the proposed takeover by the Regional District  of the Sechelt system started  Nov. 17, continued on Nov. 18  and adjourned to Nov. 24A and  again adjourned to Dec. 1.  Evidence introduced by SeJ  chelt Waterworks company in^  eluded a report from its con-'  suiting engineer which placed  a value on the.system of $167,-  406. Proceedings to date have,  mainly consisted of production,  of evidence and argument on be-.'  half of the Regional District >tof  financial arrangement covering  the addition of phase two resulted in a ten percent reduction in cost owing' to the elimination of planning costs which  would occur if a new contract  was ordered. Phase one cost  was $184,000 and phase two will  cost $381,000. As .a> result of the  refute this claim and support ten percent cut the board re-  Messrs. Dayton and Knights, ports a saving of .$44,000.  valuation of $60,000. Mr. C. Bui- ^ Mr. Gooding added that while  lock professional engineer of the.,- present financing arrangements  water rights branch appeared, were satisfactory for the comas  a  witness for the Regional,;  pletion of phase two it would be  District.  Mr.   Gooding  said   he  ahtici-..  pa ted   a   decision   likely   early y  in December from the arbitral  tion court. ' /  The   board  learned   that  th��  Hospital construction blocked  Construction' of St. Mary's  Hospital 35. bed extension has  been blocked. Provincial hospital officials have ordered the  construction committee's approved $672,031 tender be cut  to $500,000.  This came as a shock to members of the Sunshine Coast Regional Hospital directors.- As  Director Cliff Gilker put it at  last Friday night's board meeting .the government has let the  hospital down, imposing delays  in^spite of the, pressing need  for facilities and, also, in view  of^a public vote which went 95  percent in favor on Feb. 22,  19$9.  In order to get near, the. $500,  ment -the'"construction J commit  tee'would have,to. forego- the  laboratory, x-rays and kitchen  extensions. This Regional Hospital board members argue,  does not make sense as far as  the kitchen is concerned because  .double bed capacity would require almost double kitchen  capacity. They figured they  could get along without the extended laboratory and x-ray department for the time being.  Director' Frank  West was of  1 the opinion that if another tender was  called inflation would  result  in  a  higher figure  than  $672,031.  Owing to the fact the life of  the tender ended at 4 pm. Nov.  29 the^Janin Western Contract-  Museum to get  shell collection  The Charles A. Bedford famed  shell ..collection which" has travelled to. many points, in the  northwestern part of the American pontinent has been donated  to Gibsons Museum.  This was, announced at last  Tuesday night's meeting .of Gibsons .council by Mayor Wally  Peterson who earlier along with  Les. Peterson; one of the founders t'of the Pioneer Museum  Society of Gibsons made the  transfer arrangements.  Miv, Bedford is turning over  the entire collection of shells  gathered on shores of the mainland ;and up coast over a period of 20 years, along with a  shell tbook library that can be  classed'as rare.  The collection has been fumed  over to the council which makes  .the corporation of the village  the owner. The collection will  later be turned over to the museum when sufficient space can  be arranged.  CUBS GOING���UP  ors who submitted the accepted  tender will be asked to extend  their bid to cover another two  weeks. In the meantime construction y committee*^ officials  will see what can be done by  personal contact with Victoria.  Board members unofficially are  regarding the Victoria action as  just another stall.  Members of the hospital board  met with Hon. Isabel Dawson  Tuesday noon whettt the finance  problem was placed before her;  The  board  mentioned   the   uri^��  fairness   of   making   estimatfcs7  and three years later, after in��  flatidn has effected prices', find^'  ing    that    the   department de��y  mands cuts in spite,of inflation^  costs on original estimates.;.      f  Hon. Mrs. Dawson took _riote~7  of what the board members said]'  and   informed  the   board  thatC  there was no doubt about them*  obtaining the extra bed- space.y  Chamber elects officers?  necessary to approach the bank  of Montreal with a request for  further funds available in excess of $750,000.  ;  ~He~ reported that the bylaw  covering water rates and reg-'  ulations had beenJ approved by  the department of municipal  affairs and now awaited the approval of the Lt. Governor���in���  Council. He added that there  had been no word from Victoria on the board's request to  have land charges collected on  the tax roll, and in view of the  manner in which' the bylaw is  prepared it would seem that the  board will have tp include it in  its own billing sysiem.-  When the subject came . up  of Gibsons surplus��� water being  used by the Regional District;  Mayor Wally Peterson,' Gibsons  representative , on the Regional  board", presented;; the following  -as" a,.policy statement: -        ' ,  The village will'allow the Re-r  .giorial District -;to use watccj  frombvthe  villag'e' system,   sur-  .

Because of the size of the election slate on the Sunshine Coast  and the four community organizations involved any analysis of  candidates and their chances of winning would most likely result  in just of hodge-podge of hits and misses by the analyzer.  The number of candidates does show public interest in what is  going ph and the fact that out of the 18 seats up for contest only  four were by acclamation, two on the Regional District board and  two for aidermanic seats at-Sechelt, reveals more people are becoming interested in: the. future of their community.  There are three plebiscites, one in Gibsons for Sunday amusements after 1:30 p.m., which it is expected will pass, also fire protection for Roberts Creek arid street lighting for Granthams under  Regional District auspices. Both should obtain approval in their  respective areas. y  So ��� Mr. and Mrs. Voter please do get out and show these  candidates that the public approves of their attention to municipal  affairs even though you cannot elect all of them.  Take a how Mr. Bennett  In last August's provincial government election advertising  campaign one advertisement read: Hold British Columbia on  Course��� Keep Strong Hands on'the Wheel ��� Return the Bennett  Team. Another, advertisement informed the public there would be  more money for hospital purposes.  In view of the fact there is suddenly a block in the :way of  school and hospital construction and np; money available for antipollution use at the municipal level; one" must agree there is a rather unusual strong hand at the wheel, when one considers millions  in surpluses from taxes year after year.  If TMr. Bennett runs a Social Credit government why does it  not consider using the Bank of British Columbia as its niohey well.  True Social Creditors maintain that that when a bank makes a loan  it is a simple matter of bookkeeping and that no depositor's money  is used to finance the loan. If such is the case and we have a Social Credit Free Enterprise government how about a little enterprise Mr. Bennett and utilize the Bank of British Columbia to help  you out of your financial troubles. 7  Whether we have a Social Credit government is open to question. We know we do have a government that takes all the bows for  an affluent society but is parsimonious in offering needed amenities an affluent society should expect from it.  _ COAST NEWS       v  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  FIVE   YEARS   AGO  Hon.

Canada's pulp 2nd paper industry faces generally bright  prospects and promises to continue to be > one of the mainstays  of the economy. That forecast  is made by the Bank of Montreal  in its just issued Business Review for November. 7  TPulp and paper, long one of  Canada's most important industries, employs over 150,000 people and accounts for 15 percent  of. domestic exports. ;  The   bank   review   notes   the  industry's   performance in   the  past few years has been lacklustre,  due  to labor problems*  sluggish     demand,     difficulties.  with new plants and equipment,,  and an excess capacity situation. -  Between mid-1966  and the end  of 1967 the  output of the pulp  and paper industry was virtually;  stagnant.  The  rapid   expansion  that occured in early 1968 was  caused largely by stockpiling iri  the 7face   of  possible   strikes/  While relatively few  stoppages  actually materialized,- the large  inventories built up by purchasers  and  strikes at U.S.  newspapers served to curb demand  seriously later in the year.  However, in the past year the  situation has changed rapidly  and 1969 production has been  some 10 percent ahead of the  1968 average.  Traditionally over three-quarters of Canada's pulp and paper  exports have gone to the United  States, says the B of M. But  major hew markets have em-,  erged, particularly in Europe  and Japan. In relation to rapidly ,  growing demand in these countries, the available wood resources of Japan and Scandinavia are becoming increasingly  inadequate.... Canada, on the  other hand, .possesses ��� the free  world's largest accessible timber resources.,  The proportion of Canadian  pulp exports going to these areas  has rose from 17 percent in 1956  to 32 percent in 1968, while the  U.S. share of these exports has  fallen from 81 to 65 percent.,In  the 1965���68 .period, Canadian  ; pulp exports .to Europe and Ja-  ���S*'  ;  in  Gibsons  New   Books  Adult Fiction  A Bottle of Sandwiches by  Denis O'Grady.

In the  first eight months of this year  pulp shipments to the Common  Market have been running 30  percent above the equivalent  period of 1968 and there has  been a 20. percent increase in"  shipments to Japan.  The increased- demand and,  changing markets are affecting the structure of the Canadian industry, with British Columbia presently reaping the .benefits. There, most mills are located on the coaist with year-  round access to foreign markets.  B.C. producers have also developed modern equipment and  techniques 'that allow them to  cut and move wood all year long  instead of relying On the traditional method of cutting in the  winter, stripping and cutting the  trees by hand, and floating.them  ��� down to the mills.  :-*:-As a result, B.C.'s pulp and  paper shipriients increased at  an average annual rate of 11.5  percent between 1949 and 1967  (versus tlhe najtional averagd  of 5.8 percent). Over that same  period British Columbia's market share jumped from 8 percent  to 22 percent, which compares  with 1967 figures of 37 percent  for Quebec, 27 percent for Ontario, 12 percent for the Atlantic Povinces, and 2 percent for  Alberta  and  the  Prairies.  Eastern pulp and paper producers have already adopted  many of the new techniques and  are continuing to expand and  modernize: prices are firming:  and demand is expected to stay  strong. Thus, prospects for the  pulp and paper industry remain  bright, the Bank of Montreal  concludes.  N.

(STANDARD MOTORS RUELDING)  885-2360 886-2185  Editor: I note the item in  your November 5 issue entitled  Good old taxpayer!  What you are driving at is rather obscure.  Perhaps you feel  that the taxpayer is at the brink  of disaster?  BCSTA President James Camp  bell's $20,000,000 in - additional  taxes in 1970 can also be translated as 4c per day on the average tax bill. Hardly a disaster  if we regard education as an investment and not a Cost.  It is also true that an extension of the school day Or school  year Will cost more money. Better uise of lexisting facilities  may result, but ^he suggestion  is not a panacea nor a cost cutter. --���. w ���..  No one suggests that the well  of money is bottomless. No one  suggests that good management  is passe. However, education  does require a high priority  placement in the scheme of social planning.  J.W.   Killeen   President  Editor's note: If Mr. Killeen  finds what the Coast News was  driving at rather obscure, he  certainly missed tihe| message  which was to inform taxpayers  that teacher salaries would  cost $73,000 more in 1970 on the  basis of a two cents per day increase per population. We could  add that maybe the taxpayer is  ori the brink of disaster unless*  some sort of monetary common  sense can be achieved. Lesser  people than the president of the  B.C.   Teachers'   Federation  ar  rived at this conclusion quite  a while ago.. Money will never  be the prime factor in education.  Editor: About a couple of  months ago I boarded the ferry  at Horsehoe Bay and we sat for  25 minutes past sailing time, to  accommodate a* passenger coming over from" Nanaimo. I asked  the ferry personnel, deck-hands  up to the first mate, what was  important enough to hold up a  three quarters loaded.ferry for  that time. Each referred me to  his superior, including the mate..  I dropped it there. Y  Two days ago I got down to  the 6.45 ferry and realized as  I parked my car that the hold*  ing area was clear of cars. As  I ran for the ticket booth, the  ticket salesman was ori the  phone, presumably conferring  with the ship.  It was explained to me that  the time was exactly 6.45 and  new rulings demanded one clear  minute for grace before they  would hold the ship.  For the minute it would have  taken to trot down, I doubt  there would be enough discom-  fitted passengers on an early  Sunday morning sailing, to warrant a wait of two hours and a  quarter and the cost of getting  my car out of the park.  Had I been taking my car on,  I would have made it and most  likely would have been granted  a little more grace but first  and foremost I think this should  be a people ferry not just a car  ferry; 7 J.G.

Question period-is such ari in-  stitJution. In -theory, question  period h ah1 occasion for any  member to question cabinet  ministers ,;ori matters of urgent public importance. It is  one of the;very few occasions  on which large numbers of  newspapermen attend the house  of commons and, in this session  as in the last, a time when most  MPs are in their seats.  However, questions of urgent  national. importance are scarcer, on a day to day basis, than  one might suppose. Most of the  40- minute period is takeri Up  with questions designed to embarrass the government, rather  than to elicit information. Opposition members dominate the  period; "Governriient party mem-  bers; who wish to embarrass  ministers have got in thei!r licks  in the privacy of caucus.  Soriietimes question period becomes almost a form of bootleg  debate. Some members consistently ask questions which they  know to be out of order. It elicits no information. Mr. Speaker orders the offender to resume   his   seat.   However   the  offender has, by this tiiriie,  placed his words'on the record  at a moment; when commons is  the most crowded. He is de-  lijghted.    So arehis allies.  This, of course, is a happy  period of the day for Opposition  party member^. iGoveriiment^  back bench members are : less  happy: They' have great 'difficulty in being recognized7 by  Mr. Speaker when they do attempt a question for the speaker tends, quite properly, to give  freest rein to;-' opposition parties on this occasion.

Question period offers  them everything conductive to  ulcers.     >  As witness to this, I produce  Pjrime: Minister Pierre Elliott  Trudeau, who was brought to  such ; a Estate of mind "recently  that he slammed his fist on his  desk.

I have been told thai if a  person is deserted by their wife  or husband, there must be a  three-year waiting period before  a divorce, but otherwise it is  five years. Is'.this right?  A. Not quite. If the couple  have been living separate and  apart because of desertion by  the petitioned (the person suing), the period is five years.  For a similar separation for any  reason other than the petitioner's desertion���such as the desertion by the -respondent (the  person being sued), or their  separation by agreement��� the  period is three years.  Q. I have heard that you can  get a divorce on grounds of  three years' separation if your  husbands deserts and also that  it is good grounds for divorce if  he has disappeared for three  years but that the second way  is more complicated and expensive. Now if he has disappeared  for three years, it is obvious  that there is three years' separation��� so why not just do it  the simpler way.  " A. The difference is procedural. In general, the respondent  must be personally? served with  a copy of the divorce petition.

You are right :  about the complications and expenses.  Q. My. husband and I have  quarrelled for years���he drinks  and shouts and swears and  throws (things around. I finally  took the children and left our  jointly - owned house. I know  that if a wife deserts her husband, lie does not have to support her. Can't I get him for  desertion and get a divorce?  A. Desertion is not grounds  for a divorce. ,It does indeed  sound as it your husband's;cony,  duct has forced you out of the  house and yoii are correct that  in these circumstances, the law  regards him as having deserted  you. This is known as constructive ���' desertion. This is  grounds for a judicial separation after two years. If you  want a. divorce, you should see  a lawyer about suing oh grounds  of mental cruelty-. In either case,  the usual other remedies follow���- Alimony before trial, permanent maintenance, security  'fdr costs, support for 'the children, etc. You should also take  steps to sell "the jointly-owned  house. You are entitled to one-  half the net proceeds from this.

The  change will coincideJ with the  revision of Domestic Parcel Post  rates which'goes into effect Jan.  1, 1970.  The initial effect of the new  rate structure will be the standardization of parcel post fates.  At present, general parcel post  rates apply to about 27 percent  of    the    households    receiving  mail service in ithe  Northwest  Territories.  For the remaining  communities ' which comprise  about 73 percent of the households, there aire five' special  rates in effect. The new rate-  structure will be, common to all  communities without exception.  At the same time it will bring  the rates for lightweight parcels  more in line with the new adjacent province rates of the general Canada wide post rate  structure.  IT'S UP TO YOU!

Amongst such  surroundings, one is not top conscious of the people in' the valley,  perhaps cooking supper over,  primus stoves in their rude hovels. Speaking of the poor, I  saw a protest in the Plaza de la  Independencia over the rising  cost of basic necessities such  as milk. The people were chanting and there were some fellows up on the balcony of the  national police building exhorting them! I saw signs saying  vive the working classes and  lower the price of milk.  Thus it was (reminiscent of  the protest I witnessed in Guatemala City where a large orderly crowd from the poor sector marched and chanted around  the square beneath* the government palace, demanding a halt  to the rise in food prices..  But enough" of this chatter  you say, let: us leave our lofty  perch and descend into the jungle once more.

The'ytrip along  the valley, and over the pass to  Santo Dominiiigo deios Color-  ados was spectacular. In'. the 7  central Andrean valley, high, ��  well clad green peaks, including Cotopaxi, rising, to either  side, some shrouded 7 in mist.  It was this fertile, well clad, biologically civilized landscape  that endeared the Ecuadorian  Andes to the conquering Incas,  coming from their more austere  altiplanos.  Fresh and cool was themo-ra:  ing air. Indians along the way  were rising to the warming sun  and moving into their fields, between the rows of eucalyptus  trees. We branched off the cool  road going to Riobamba and,  Cuenca and took ours, the hot  one, going to Guayaquil. We  rose up 'over the pass, close to a  v high mountain, then descended  into the misty lowlands via a  windy road with the odd mud  slide being cleared away.  As we lost elevation the vegetation grew thicker and more  luxurfent,   due   to  the   Pacific  v rains. Soon  we reached) Santo  Domingo  and  took  the  wrong  turn,   which   added   two  hours  to our journey, as we persisted  in our mistake until Bernhard ;  grew suspicious.
