A report covering Tom Ber-
gers complaint in the legislature
of brutality by RCMP towards
Sechelt band Indians, tabled in
the   legislature   Tuesday  failed
to substantiate Berger's claim.
■ The 60-page report tabled by
Attorney-Ceneral Les  Peterson
stated the allegations were unfounded. The report was made
by A. E. Plummer, departmental  investigator.   The   attorney-
general maintained a disservice
had r been  done to   the 7 RCMP
and     Sechelt'  itself. Inquiries
would be continued keeping in
mind the possibility of charges
of mischief making arising.
Mr. Berger, an NDP member
of the legislature described the
report as being .partisan and a
half-baked inquiry. There should
be a public investigation. He has
described the public mischief
angle mentioned by the attorney-
general as intimidation.
7 March 1969 can be considered very near normal. Precipitation
for the first three months of this year is well below normal, much

in the month. Total precipitation, January 1 to March 31, was 14.71
inches, while the normal figure for this period is 20.11 inches. Statistics are based on 18 years of continuous recording of the'elements. The March 1969 statistics follow:

Red Cross needs help
Mrs. B. D. L. Johnson, Red
Cross vice-president for the
coastal area, and her associate,
Mi's. J. Parr, visited the Roberts Creek group in their Red
Cross cottage on March 26. They
hoped to meet with, and assist,
women from other areas desirous of forming working units,
but riorsc were present.
In excess of 60-000 garments
were sent where needed last
year by the B.C; Red Cross.

Barry Jamieson' of Ft. St.
John has been named assistant-
treasurer of the Sunshine Coast

was announced at Friday night's
board meeting when it was explained that Mr. Jamieson was

the .position. The salary will be
'$625 per.month.

tients were transfused and 166
units issued. Six families were
assisted. In the water safety
program 136 pupils benefitted at
a cost of $114 and an estimated
saving of $1,410.
Mrs. Johnson and Mrs. Parr,
both volunteer workers, praised
the work and the 30 years of
service of the local group.
This is the time of the year
when the Red Cross puts on its
annual campaign and it is with
regret that the Roberts Creek
workers, for the second year,
are unable to take on this project. Always in the past they
have canvassed from door to
door and gone over the top with
their collections. However they
are willing to receive and pass
on any donations sent to them
and it was suggested that individual parties could be held,
cards, teas — and proceeds sent
to Red Cross.
If you dump your garbage in
the waters of Howe Sound or
Gibsons harbor or anywhere
along the coast line — watch it!
The RCMP are checking closely on garbage dumpers who are
violating the law which states
that garbage must not be dumped1 any closer than three miles
from shore and in an area where
tidal movement occurs. The penalty, if you are caught, is a fine
up to $100 or six months in jail.
The Sunshine Coast Regional
District budget calling for an expenditure of $99,1*42 in seven different departments was given
final reading at Friday night's
meeting last week.
This budget is made up of a
$10,861 surplus from last year,
$4,000 revenue from building inspections, government grants
amounting to $11,000 and $73,281
from taxation.       "
The surplus from 1968 could
have been greater but for the
deficit created by the garbage
disposal dump situation which
took more cash than was allotted. The budget called for expenditure of $12,000 but it required $1,375 more.
Included in the budget but
not a part of the normal administrative operation is $660,000
for water supply and distribution/This is at present shown as
a figure in the overall budget
for the year but cannot be used
until such* borrowing from the
bank is arranged.
Fire district
faces problem
A method for continuation of.
the Fire Protection District ui£:
der Regional District control af-.
ter part of the area involved becomes incorporated within GibV
sons village boundaries was discussed at Tuesday night's council meeting. Council decided to
discuss it further with Fire District officials to get their views.
One plan is for the Fire District to approach the Regional
District to dissolve the present -
setup but to maintain a protection continuity for the part not
included in the expansion area
which the village would take
over. A letter from Hon. Dan
Campbell, municipal, minister
will be the guide to be used for
discussion with Fire District officials.
A request for a grant to help
finance Elphinstone school band

MuiuuuiuuutMMMUMuiumimuttiM^^  &n Caster JWes&age  My thoughts revert to that scene when He that was born in  Bethlehem, despised and rejected of men, was scourged and condemned to the death of a slave and a criminal.  From that moment of utter despair there sprang the movement  which has gone some way to create a human society based on the  laws of God, on the one abiding reality, the infinite duty of men  to God, of one to another.  * Of all the lessons brought to my mind, the deepest is this, that  apparent failure when faced: with courage and examined by reason,  is the road to superlative triumph. That, I (believe., is the true meaning which underlies all that has happened since the dawn which  broke upon Easfter Day. The spirit of Christ rose from his grave.  It moved and yet moves the souls of men to face^and accomplish  the task which He set for them. ������ Lionel Curtis of Britain's Round  Table fame in his famed book Civitas Dei ��� The Commonwealth  of God.  Credit and the merchant  Consumer credit, which has grown steadily and vigorously  since World War H, should continue to expand *��r some years, says  the Bank of Montreal Business Review for March. Surveying the  growth of borrowing the bank says the amount of consumer credit  outstanding has tended to double every six or seven years, a rate  of increase which has been well in excess of the economy as a  whole. ���  The review also notes that in spite of the unprecedentedly high  level of consumer debt in relation to income, personal liquid assets  in the form of Canada Savings Bonds and deposits in financial intermediaries have been rising faster than consumer credit and  Canadians are in fact more a nation of savers than borrowers.  The bank report is very interesting but there are those merchants who would loudly proclaim amen to the fact that we are  more savers than borrowers. It could be the reason why merchants  are switching to cash business only in order to get some oi those  savings in return for the products they have sold.  Maybe they call them wonder drugs because it is a wonder  you.can pay for them.

FIVE YEARS AGO  While March came in like a  lion it departed like a lamb after depositing more than normal rain during 18 days with  rain and also produced a 68 degree high temperature on March  30, six degrees above normal.  As the result of Gibsons council receiving advice from government officials not to supply  water outside the village area,  council is definitely turning  down applications.  Sechelt's council is having difficulties with its zoning bylaw  and how restrictive covenants  will affect operation of the bylaw.

When you next apply for your  motor vehicle licence it will be  necessary for you to provide the  motor vehicle office with the  name of your insurer and your  policy number. The legislation  provides that a person who does  not carry automobile insurance  is guilty of an offence and upon  conviction is liable to a fine of  'not less than $250, or to imprisonment of atiot less than three  months, or to both such a fine  and imprisonment.

Provision is also made for the  payment of medical and rehabilitation and funeral expenses  as follows:  All expenses incurred for medical, surgical, dental, hospital,  nursing and ambulance services  arid,  all services  and supplies  essential for  treatment  or re- '  habilitation. Maximum payable: ���  the liability limit of the policy?  (not less than $50,000). Funeral  expenses: up to $500.  In addition to these basic accident benefits) which are paid  immediately and without establishing who was at fault for.the  accident, the legislation provides "'���than an injured person  may sue the negligent driver for  damage.   In   that   event,   any  $7,000  $7,280  $14,280  amounts paid under the basil  accident benefits will be deducted from any amounts recovered  from a tortfeasor.  Tourists are protected and  have full rights of recovery under tort law. There will/be: no  .insurance barrier at our border.  British Columbia residents who  are travelling outside of the  province are also automatically  provided with full insurance  protection to limits prescribed  by law. In short, he will not become a second-class motoring  citizen.  The basic accident benefits  are much more generous than  the government plan that operates in Saskatchewan, or the  private insurance plans that operate in other parts of Canada.  The premium for this basic no-  fault coverage will be" flat rated  throughout the province. Notwithstanding the greater benefits, it is anticipated that there  will be a reduction ins insurance  premiums compared with the  current rates that apply in British Columbia. _3f you do not  choose to buy collision coverage to insure physical damage  to, your own vehicle, the reduction in premium is estimated at  around 25%.  The special committee recommended that continuing study  should be given to the ramifica-  recommendation in regard�� to  property damage and collision.  However, the principle espoused  by the Royal Comin__iss.6nv  namely that tort action should  be abolished, has been partially  implemented in the new legislation in respect to property damage.;   . '".'77.  The legislation provides that  no action shall be brought  against any person for recovery of damage to property occasioned in an accident involving a motor vehicle exceeding  $250 and costs. This provision  does not apply to a person ordin  arily resident outside the province. This means the first $250  of liability may be recoverable  in the Small Debts court.  Citizens will have the option  of placing collision insurance on  their own' vehicle,, but this coverage will not be mandatory.  The legislation implements the  recommendations of the Royal  Commission and the special  committee that the minimum  age for driver's licences be increased from 16 to. 18, unless  the driver is a certified graduate from an authorized driver  training program. This section  One of the major recommendations of the Wootton report  and the Special Comahittee's report, which is implemented iri  the new legislation, is the establishment of a British Cplumbia  Automobile Insurance board.  This board will have the authority to review the rates charged for insurance and to make recommendations to the goverrir  ment. There is also a provision  in the new legislation for the  government to enter the insurance business if the insurance  coverage that is made compulsory in the legislation is not  otherwise obtainable at a cost  that is, in the opinion of the  LieutenaritJGoyernor in Council,  cbmriiensurate with the risk. In  this event the Lieutenant-Goivern  or in Council may designate a  department of government, or  an agency or emanation of the  Crown, to administer government automobile insurance.  Other recommendations of the  Wootten Royal Commission and  the legislative committee are also implemented in the new legislation,   such  as  the recom-  (Continued on Page 3)  N.

I shall be brief. "When Coast-  Chilcotin riding was formed  there was speculation by many  people, including myself, that  the political leanings of Interior and Coast residents would  vary widely.  All the completed forms were  separated by place of origin and  tabulated separately.; There  were two predictable variations.  Twice as many Interior residents marked themselves as  "Uncertain, not enough knowledge" on the subject of salmon  fleet iim-tation and fishing boundaries, although both groups  gave a majority of Yes votes.  There was one other discrep-  Auto Insurance  (Continued from Page 2)  mendaition that existing statute  law concerning injury to gratuitous passengers be amended to  permit proof of ordinary negligence rather than'gross negligence.  Consistent with the views expressed by the Royal Commission and the special committee,  drivers of motor vehicles with  poor driving records v will pay  more. The legislation provides  that a driver who has accumulated ten point penalties in respect of his driving record may  be assessed an) additional fee of  $257 and the money that is raised in this manner trill be used  by the British Columbia Automobile Insurance board for driver education and highway safe-  ty.Y.Y';  Coast News  Phone 886-2622  Tlie  Christian  Science  Monitor  recommends  yon read  your local  newspaper  I Your local newspaper keeps you in-  ! formed of what's happening in your  : area ���community events, public  : meetings, stories about people in  I your vicinity.

Not too long ago, small logs, sawmill cuttings and veneer  clippings had little value in the forest industry.  That was before we learned how to turn this waste into  valuable products. Today, as pulp, newsprint, paper,  cartons, panel board and Pres-to-logs*,  this material is bringing many benefits to the people of  British Columbia. Waste not, want not. This old-fashioned  policy pays handsomely in two ways. It ensures  that every acre of forest will yield its full quota of payrolls  and prosperity. Equally important,  by making more complete use of wood harvested, we're  helping to preserve essential timber resources.  'Registered Trademark  City-  state.  .ZIP Code.

The mental element in crime  is a frequent source of misunder  standing. No one can be convicted of a criminal offence without  possession some degree of guil-  "ty intention or without having a  guilty mind. This should be contrasted with civil lawj for example, a person is liable jfor all  damages flowing from a motor  vehicle collision caused by his  negligence and it is quite immaterial that the mishap was an  accident or that he didn't intend  it to happen.  On the other hand' ~ lack of  guilty intention, for example, in  a shop-lifting charge, will result in a finding of not guilty.  Most of us have had the unpleasant experience of absent-  mindedly carrying an object out  of a store without paying for it.  No crime,, however, Jias been  committed because there was  no guilty, intention.  Let us take another example  ��� X. walking carelessly down a  street, accidentally knocks down  Y. and injures him. X. is liable  for the civil wrong of negligent  behavior and must pay all Y.'s  damages, but he is not guilty of  the crime of assault because he  had no intention to commit that  crime ��� or indeed any crime.  In a criminal case the crown  must prove a guilty intention.

ANDY  CAPP  Copyright applied for  ed? N6 one knows for sure what  is iri another's mind, but, their  intention'may be gathered from  all the surrounding circumstances. If the accused in his defence:  raises any reasonable doubt. .as  to the lack of his guilty7 intention, he must be acquitted.  The concept of the quilty intention does not generally apply  to offences forbidderi by provincial statute. Thus, it would be  no defence in a highway speeding charge to convince the magistrate that one did not intend  to speed, but that it had been  done accidentally.  The defence of lack of guilty  intention applies to all crimes,  that is to say, offences as set  out in the Criminal Code of Canada or other federal statute.  Thus, it sometimes occurs that  persons charged with crimes are  acquitted because, they were  drunk at the time in question  and were therefore incapable of  forming the intention to commit  the offence.  Our law does not recognize  the existence of guilty intention  or guilty mind alone, as a crime  The harborer of an unethical,  immoral or evil intention must  do something to put it into effect. .  These observations are general in nature and there exist numerous qualifications and extensions to these very general rules  If there exists any doubt in particular cases a lawyer should be  consulted.

The only way that this proposed carnival can be made a success is with the co-operation and  help from the whole student  body, says the Spring issue of  the student periodical Glad Rag.  Some of the activities planned  for the event will be a car rally,  some sort of talent show, a number of booths with various carnival type games, and a dance  to wind up the evening.  The carnival is hoped to be  held on May Day weekend as  there are not really that many  people who leave here but quite  a number who come up for the  long weekend.  FAJTIi:  There are seven distinct  themes this year for women's  summer dresses according to  Helen Bahen, Montreal news  editor of Style, Canadian women's wear .newspaper. They  are:  GYPSY - [PEASANT INFLUENCE. The gypsy camp is gay,  with tiered skirts and hemline  flounces, colorful floral prints  and giant, vibrant patterns, abstractly striped in a blazing Romany mood, ruffles and bodices  which bare the midriff. Old-  Bashioned wallpaper effects,  challis and paisley prints, pinafore ruffles, lace and braid trimming also create a peasant-y  look.  SOFT LOOK. This effect  comes on strong in simple, casual shapes of clingy, slinky fabrics such as crepe, jersey and  chiffon which give "fluidity of  line. The mood of softness is  also set by bias cuts, dirndl gathers, cowls, wraps, soft shirring, tucking and shapes caught  loosely at the waist or just  above with sashes and cummerbunds.  PLEATS. There are pleats in  all sizes from broad, flat ones to  uiiy tucks. They animate just  about   everything   ���   sleeves,  pant legs, bodices and skirts.  BARE   LOOK.    This   means  sleeve cut-outs, open latticework through midriff, low-cut  backs, decollete necklines and  the body revealed through simple shapes of see-through lace  and semi-sheer voile. In sportswear, the bare facts are exposed by cropped tops, bare midriff halter and bra tops in the  '30s mood, see-through voile and  lace pants with bikini lining and  jumpsuits with cut-outs, chain-  laced midriff or straps with ring  joining tops and bottom.  PANTS. Pants are right for all  occasions ��� from tailored styles  for daytime to party pants for  evening. Party pants range from  harem pyjamas to s short pants  under wrap skirts, from pants  with matching tunic dresses to  the flare legiged jumpsuits.  pmNT-ON-PiR)IilNIT. Dresses  and sportswear separates combining contrasting prints such  as polkadots and stripes, combinations of patterns and fabrics, are part of the new print  madness.  CLASSICS. The pulled-together  mood of blazer jacket, pleated  skirt, shirt, vest, tunic-top and  jumper is part of the summer  scene.

J.C. many years ago in  the Province, later in the Coast  News.  As he was a very modest and  gentle man it is probable that  few knew of his skill with pencil  and brush. He painted and  sketched entirely, for his own  pleasure in odd moments during  his sailing days and throughout  his life. When Jack Charman  felt a need to paint or sketch it  never worried him that he might  have run out of sketching paper  and paint, he used whatever  was available at the time, and  some of his most beautiful little  sketches were done on the back  of an old envelope or cereal' box.  A lesson to those of us who think  the expensive equipment is essential to good workmanship.  He left behind a small; collec-  iton of exquisite water colors,  some pencil sketches and some  experiments with a new medium  pastels. The paintings have been  lovingly mounted and are  on loan to the Gallery through  the generosity of his son George  Charman.  Also on loan to the Gallery is  a portrait of Jack Charman,  painted by Bob Prough six or  seven years ago which has been  lent by Mr. and Mrs. Austin  Moorcroft of Gower Point. Bob  Prough was at that time working at Port Mellon and his mother, Mrs. Anne Prough and sds>-  ter Mrs. Joyce Ripper both live  in the Gower Point area.  Mr. Charman's pictures will  be on display until April 12.  The Gallery is open Wednesday  to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  IMPORTANT  ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING  South Pender Harbour Waterworks Oniric!

Labor calls for  !C inquiry  Ray Haynes, secretary-treasurer of the B.C. Federation of  Labor, has announced that the  federation has written to Premier Bennett, calling for an investigation into recent charges  of police brutality against native  Indians in Sechelt. The letter  asks that such an investigation  be conducted by an independent  committee of respected citizens  from outside the area who would  report publicly on their findings.  In comimenting on the federation's action, Mr. Haynes stated:  "At the request of local unions  in the area, bur representatives  have visited Sechelt and discussed the charges with a number  of native Indians and other citizens in the community. We have  also examined details of the allegations. As a result, we believe  this matter to be sufficiently serious to warrant a thorough investigation publicly and by an  independent body. No private  investigation, by the attorney-  general's department or by any  government department, can  adequately ensure that the facts  are brought to light.  "We have suggested establishment of a committee of known  and respected citizens including  representatives of clergy, labor  and other groups in the com-  munlity. With such an independent investigation, the public  cpuld feel confident that every  effort was being made to arrive  at the truth.  "Our police play an important  role in our community. We entrust them with great powers  and any allegations of abuse of  those powers must always receive the closest scrutiny, not  only in the interests of justice  and the protection of civil rights  but also in the interest of public confidence in our law enforcement agencies.  "We trust that early action  will ibe forthcoming on this matter which we consider to be of  great urgency and importance."

Isabel paw-  son, ministeir without portfolio  in the provincial government to.  act vwith him for the people of  the Powell River school district  to save the school systemi from  disintegrating, following defeat  of a school referendum at Powell River, Don Lockstead, New  Democratic Party candidate has  issued the following statement:  The Public Schools act as  amended in 1968 (the new finance formula) is bad legislation  because it suggests that education costs should be the same  throughout the province regardless of any and all local considerations. This is wrong. The  Powell River district cannot operate on the same per capita  cost as can an urban district unless it offers an inferior school  system.  This legislation unless amended will inevitably force districts  to down-grade the quality of  their school system/. Immediate  and irreparable damage to the  school system' will result unless  immediate steps are taken to  prevent it.  Unless additional funds can be  voted, important parts of our  school system such as kindergartens and music programs will  be lost and even these emergency economies: can save us  from a situation in which schools  may have to be closed before  December.  Our trustees are responsible  people who are doing a good job  for the people who elected them.  They are frustrated in their efforts by a finance formula which  suggests to the electorate that  they have been spending money  irresponsibly and they have  been forced to igo to a referendum (as in Powell River where  it was defeated) the defeat of  which makes it impossible for  them to do their job effectively.

Mr.  Downes, vice-president, corporate communications, of MacMillan Bloedel Limited, headed  last year's successul campaign  which raised $501,2221, exceeding its target of $450,000.  Bill No. 40, an Act to: amend  tlie Municipal Act,was intro-  rluced last week by the minister  of municipal affairs, Hon Dan  Campbell, and read for the first  time.  It permits the local council to  pay all or part of the premium  in respect of any benefit, accident, sickness, or life insurance policy in respect of not only municipal employees, but of  members of council, recreation  commission, advisory planning  commissions and boards of variance, and permits councils to  not only pay the expenses of,  bult pay members of the local  Court of Revision, a per diem  rate not exceeding $25.  The act provides for an occupancy fee payable in respect to  the occupancy of a mobile home.  Operators collect the fee and  may be paid a fee of up to 3 per  cent. The fees shall be prescribed in the bylaw and shall not  exceed the following scale:  Area per month  900 square feet or more     $10  800 to 899 sq. ft. $9  700 to 799 sq. ft. $8  600 to 699 sq. ft. $7  500 to 599 sq. ft. $6  400 to 499 sq. ft. $5  300 to 390 sq. ft. $4  Less than 300 sq. ft., Nil  Section 210-A. amends the Act  whereby public sports or entertainment at which any fee is  charged for admission, except  horse racing, may be allowed  after half past one in the afternoon of Sunday, provided it is'  adopted by electors through bylaw iby a three-fifthis majority  of the electors who vote on the  bylaw.
