Because  of the vital importance he requested the ex-offici'o member  and board chairman, Director  Gilker, to assume the duties of  a committee chairman^ to  which all members agreed.  Director C. Gilker, chairman  of the board, thereupon took the  chair for the balance of the Finance Committee Meeting:  Before beginning of the discussion Director Weist formally  filed all his correspondence including private ��letters to the  director, Pollution Control  branch, with the finance committee for study and, if so desired, as part of* the basis for  their recommendation.  The committee had the following material for consideration,  from which to come to any con- -  elusions and    recommendation  to the board: ;      -,  -Director  West's   file  of correspondence,     as      mentioned.  above.';-'/-'  Letter of the director, pollution Control branch, dated Jan.  14, 1970, enclosing application of  the Village of Gibsons for permit to discharge sewage, dated  Dec. 30, 1970.

The committee was advised, in  the letter that any further details ought to be supplied by the  village and their engineers.  Letter of the Village of Gibsons, dated Feb. 12 1970, demanding copy of Director West's  letter to the Pollution 'Control  branch, which gave rise to their  reply to Director West of Dec.  18, 1969. (both items included in  Mr. West's file of correspondence:).:      ;  { The committee first read and  considered Director West's letter to the Pollution Control  branch; dated December 12, 1969  and came to the following conclu  signs: .;;������-��� ��� ?:...-,-:. -r,yx ���  Director West as elected director for Area E .was fully within his rights to write the, letter  in question under the powers  conferred to directors under the  Municipal' Act and the policies  adopted by the ��� Regional board  in their regular meeting of May  2, 1969;  ��� The letter,, as written, did in  no way bind the board to any action^ nor. was it written in any  way. purporting to be communication of the board to the director, Pollution Control branch.

Director  Watson was informed that the  regulation nomination notice  had been published and as there  was no response. The board had  two choices, to either let Director Rutherford continue Or to  call on his runner-up in the previous election. As hev was not  available they asked Director  Rutherford  to  continue.

Central Okanagan Regional  Board asked for support on its  niove to have non-returnable  bottles banned. It was pointed  ou that this resolution had come  before the UBCM annual meeting but got nowhere with the  government. However the board  supported the idea.  Director Tyner recommended  Ted Sundquist for garbage.collection in Pender Harbor area;  A questionaire was being sent  out leading towards a possible  plebiscite on garbage. He added that he did not. think one  garbage dump was enough for  the area.  Director Huihbs reported on  the terrible condition of the  road to the garbage dump at Sechelt arid recommended that it  be made passible; for those desiring to use the dump. v v  Ambulance service in the Se-  chelt-Halfmoon Bay area was  in dire straits Director Watson  informed the board asking that  some financial assistance be pro  vided. The problem will be  checked.  Your ideas necessary!  Gibsons Centennial committee  is seeking ideas for a local project. So far two written suggestions have been received. One,  a Library museum building. The  other a contribution to the Sunshine Coast Recreational Centre.  A centennial trail has also been  mentioned.  Projects of a lasting nature  eligible for approval by the provincial Centennial '71 committee are:  Acquisition and construction  of buildings, parks (other than  regional) and other capital  works;  Acquisition of (buildings of historic merit and ^any furniture or  furnishings therein;  Restoration of buildings of historic or architectural merit; ���",  Writing . and publishing of  books;  Composition of musical works  Creation   and   completion of  paintings or sculpture and other  works of art;  Additions and improvements  to previous centennial projects.  Such commemorative projects.  as senior citizens' housing, _  chronic hospitals, nursing homes  schools, community colleges and  regional parks will not receive  Centennial grants because they  are covered by other forms of  provincial grants. ; ���      .  The provincial Centennial '71  committee will make a grant  of 60 cents per capita for an approved project provided sufficient funds are raised by the local committee to complete the  project.

'  The turbulance subsides  Three remarks in sequence at last Friday night's meeting of  the Regional District board, involving Gibsons efforts in getting a  sewer system in action can be regarded as the climax of the mental struggle that has gone on now for some months between opposing factions.  The three remarks were: From Mr. West, "Am I a, liar? Was  I completely nutty?" From Chairman Cliff Gilker: "If the village  is to use secondary treatment all the furore will cease according to  my; personal opinion." From Mayor Wally Peterson, "It is merely  just a matter of reading a bylaw."  Mr. West's remark was the culmination of his argument about  the Gibsons stand on the issue as he saw it. Mr. Gilker summed up  the means of quelling the debate and Mayor Peterson supplied the  closing clincher.  During the months of the argument much water has flowed beneath bridges and some Of it was muddy, due to the turbulence  created by the discussion.  At Gibsons council meeting Feb. 17, Mayor Peterson presented a notice of motion to give council power to instal a secondary  treatment plant for the first stage of sewer construction with an  arrangement to include the adding of the upper levels to the system at the appropriate time. This motion came before council and  was given the required readings Tuesday night.  Perhaps now the heat will be off and both sides can approach  the situation with a quieter fraime of mind. Peace! It's wonderful!  Settlements analyzed  Wage settlements in 1969 provided an average annual base  rate increase of 7.9 percent; according to statistics analysed1 by the  Canada Department of Labor. Settlements in 1968 resulted in an 8.0  percent increase. Contracts covering bargaining units of 500 employees or more, excluding all in the construction industry, were  examined.  The consumer price index rose 4.6 percent during 1969, and 4.1  during 1968. Deflating the wage increases by the consumer price  index increases, the average hourly base rate increased in real  terms by 3.2 percent during 1969, against 3.8 in 1968.  Settlements during 1969 of one-year duration provided for increases averaging 8.0 percent; those of two-year duration for increases of 9.4 percent and 5.8 for the first and second years res-  pectivly; and those of three-year duration of 10.8, 6.4 and 5.2 percent for the first, second and third years of the contract.  A growing profession  British Columbia's Safety Council in its January report on  deaths in the province due to inattention, error in judgment or  stupidity (accidental deaths), reveals that motor vehicle deaths for  January 1970 totalled 33. In January 1969 motor vehicle deaths  totalled 15.  All accidental deaths for the month totalled 128 against 92 for  January of 1969. To which the writers of the Safety Council report  have added:  An excellent .month ��� for the morticians. At the rate British  Columbians are killing themselves off, we urge young people to  seriously consider entering this fast growing profession!  COAST NEWS  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  The following quotation was  given to a grade 10, English  Class at Elphinstone Secondary  School to form a reference core  for an Education Week essay.  The essay printed here received  a majority vote from a panel of  senior students.  Education is more than mere  instruction, acquisition of knowledge, usefulness, and efficiency.  Education Nthrough widening  man's intellectual horizon,*  should at the same time, lead  him deeper into his own. self,  not- merely for ithe purpose- of  developing   Ms   individuality.;     ing, training.

The definition of education is  stated as follows. EDUCATION:  The training of the mental and  moral powers, as by a system of  study and discipline; also, the  system itself; 2) The knowledge  and abilities gained by such  training;  3) Instruction, teach-  FIVE   YEARS  AGO  The school board was rumored considering moving out of  Gibsons. Gibsons council strongly objected to any talk of such  a move.  Biackfish or killer whales visited Howe Sound area, coming  through Shoal channel and sporting around a while before moving out.  Martin Dayton reported to  Gibsons council that increasing  the use of Jap dam could result  in a one million gallon reservoir.  The provincial government  announced it would provide 50  percent of approved cost hospital construction as well as 33V6  percent for renovation and improvements also the same amount for moveable equipment.  10 YEARS AGO  Pender Harbor Board of  Trade is making an effort to  have herring boundaries extended in that area.  In the legislature Tony Gar-  grave, CCF, urged the government to construct a road from  Egmont to the Skookumchuck  area, along with a park site.  A sudden snowfall sent numerous cars into, the ditch along  the highway in Roberts Creek  area.  A capacity crowd of close to  150 at Sechelt Legion hall wit  nessed a boxing display by the  Peninsula Boxing club members.  15   YEARS  AGO  Pender Harbor Board of  Trade lias requested that lands  bordering Sakinaw and Ruby  lakes be set aside as park areas. V  Gibsons parents through the  PTA supports students in their  request to have senior school  party dances.  The safety committee at Port  Mellon has decided on a crack-  ea.  down to curb speedrig in the ar-  Sechelt Board of Trade will  approach roads authorities to  get. the Gibsons-Powell River  road completed as soon as possible.  Danny's Dining room has  been enlarged to twice its size  by the removal of partitions.  20 YEARS AGO  . Tenders, have been called for  the 2,000 hp generators and turbines for the million dollar Clow  hbm Falls power station.  Gordn King will take over  management of Elphinstone Coop store replacing Peter De-  jong who is moving to Vancouver.  Public water users on the Sechelt Waterworks system are  banding together to fight the  proposed increased increase water rates.  I    agree     that     'Educations  through  widening -man's  intellectual   horizon   should at   the  same time lead him deeper into  his own self, not merely for the  purpose of developing his mdiy-:  iduaiity. .which when leading to  isolation, may even lead to catastrophe, .but for the purpose of  helping him to discover the unity of his own strivings with the  strivings, hopes and ideals, and  also the loneliness, the sins,  sufferings, and the aggressive  tendencies of all mankind.'  Being able to apply what you  learn is most important. It is all  very well to be able to feel off  facts off the top of your head,  but if .you do not understand  them, they are of no use to you.  Most peope take for granted  that what they read is true, especially when they are reading  history. Actually, these writings  are someone's opinion of events  which have taken place. If you  read them andimmediately acceptthem astrue,you will be  no more intelligent. The person  who wrote this history had prejudices against the type of political government or figures that  were at that time in power.  The question to be answered in  these cases is 'Why?' Why did  he write like this? Why did he  resent or like this figure?  The  answer   would  probably  lie in his upbringing. Open-mind  edness should be taught to child- ���:<  ren when they are young.  In  : this.way it will become easier  for them, when they are, older,  to recognize and acknowledge  the strivings of others. Encouraging children to learn about  venvifonmerits and conditions in  1 which others live, will also aid  in the development of their  mind. : ���'-...'.  .  Too often, a child is brought  up thinking that the way he  lives is the best Way. As he  grows older, he will go through  life constructing his own world,  ignorant of the worlds of others.  When confronted with another  person who has a different view  or idea on how things should be  done, he will not know or be ab-'  le to under stand 'Why?' He will  instead try to make this other  person accept and adapt to his  way of thinking. This will invariably lead to conflicts between  the two.  Education should be taken as a  means of broadening one views,  , not as a way of acquiring status.  I think that obtaining this type  of education would rely greatly  on the cooperation of the ^dividual. Encuragiing discussions  in which other's opinions were  given could provide a basis for  those people who think as they  do. Talking with people of other  countries or people who live  under different systems of government would also help them  to understand their ideals and  the reasons for each of their  rdpinions.��� v Lygie Martinez,  Grade 10.  By Cheryl Brackett  Education    has done    many  things for me. It has instructed  me in certain basic skills needed  for everyday life.'It has helped  ready me to fit into the society  in which I live.  It has given me more knowledge of the world in the past  and present, of the different environments in all parts of the  world, the different customs and  behaviour of people and how  they progress compared to the  rest of the world. Education  has taught me how to self-discipline myself by having to  work and study on my own  time. It has widened my vocabulary and taught me how  to apply my thinking to different problems. It has taught me  good sportsmanship and prepared me for further   education  By Mark Ruggles  at higher schools. It has taught  me how to express myself better in writing and speech and.  has given me experience among  other things. '  Education is not only .something that happens at school  but it is a continuous progress  of learning that happens through  the whole of life. Many people  have the wrong idea of what education is. Education clarifies  a person's place in history, his  responsibility to society, his duty to himelf, and it enlarges  the faculty for enjoyment. The  mechanics of livlihood that we  learn in school is really instruction. Every day, everyone in  this world is being educated in  some way. Education is something that no one can get along  without. ���Cheryl Brackett,  Grade 12.  What does education mean to  today's student who is about to  finish his hi^h school carreer?  So far, education has been a  way of life for him. .now, suddenly, it is a pivot on which his  future will balance (or not balance, as the case may be). To  say ithe least, he is confused.  After spending twelve years  in school (if he has been lucfcy),  where his courses were definitely set down for' him..though  he has some choice, .he is now  dumped out into .the world, hot  now wholly of books, lectures  and exams, but into the real  world of people, places, jobs and  professions, .arid money. Every  one is now offering him advice  his teachers tell him to go  straight into university or other  forms of higher learning; his  parents, *ui many cases go along  with his teachers.  He sees students who have  gone right through university  from high school. Many of them  haven't the faintest idea how to  work or apply themselves.: they  may have a degree (PHD., BSc,.  B.A., etc:) which will get them  a job, but when it comes to us  ing it they are at a loss as to  what to do. .not ail; but some.  Other people tell this student to  wait a year after high school  before going to university. This  will give him time to earn some  money, learn how to work, and  learn about people. If he dojesn't  know/ what he wants to do with  his ^future, this will also, supposedly, give him a chance to  find out what he wants to do.  If he is at all aware of his  situation, he realizes that-he is  forced on  to further education  regardless of whether of hot fie  wants tQi or if he knows what  he wants to do with his life and  his   future.   It is   society  that  now  dictates   to him.   Success  seems no longer to  be measured in u happiness, self fulfillment,; and satisfaction. Modern  v man can,no longer get along on  , his 6wii--he; is not an: individual...  ; any mprei; but a. product-ofso-"  ' ciety. JSociety will measure his  '���' successi.ini terms, of status, tiie  house and cars he can afford,  his assets,..his money. He is not  self reliant as one indiyiduai.  Society . created him,  educated  him; now he is dependent on it  for his existence. What he is  as a pefson; his abilities, views,  '^tn^es^'desues,'.'.appear: to be  iiffeievaht. What he can actually  do is now second in line to a  piece of paper stating his qualifications.  This result of the educational  process in/today's society is all  to frequent. It is hpt always the  result, of course, but isi certainly evident, and is only one aspect of the situation. Fortunately, there are those who know  What they are after and what  they want to do, but the riumr  ber of this type of person right  from high school is very small.  ���Mark Ruggles, Grade 12, Elphinstone Secondary school.

He found that a committee's interest in any financial subject  varied inversely with the size  of the amount involved.  Thus a committee 4 which  could, in half a minute, approve  flie expenditure of fiOmUUdris  for a new plant could well spend  iialf an hour or more debating  the expenditure of $70. for a  new bicycle shed. I can vouch  " for this.  Parliamentarystanding committees are now, for the most  parti dealing with estimates of  departmental expenditures. I  hay�� a great liking for the committee system. Committees are  Jess partisan, than the house  of commons. They can. investigate. They can even initiate, to  some extent, under the new  rules. Northrn development com  mittee^s declaration oh Arctic  sovereignty was undoubedtly  one of the forces, which helped  firm up the government position  Examination of departmental  spending is not/at time, of writing, one of the shining glories  of committee work. On the.day  this column is written, much of  the mornihg has been spent supposedly examining the department of fisheries estimates for  spending of $75 millions. Supposedly. In fact, more than half  ah hour of thie committee's one-  ahd a- half hour, meeting dealt  with one item., a $3,000 grant  to the Lunenberg Fishermen's  Exhibition.       V  Fisheries Minister Jack Davis  cut the grant from his estimates  this year. The .exhibition wasn't  helping to sell fish, he said. The  $3,000 would-be better spent on  such TV programs as the Galloping Gourmet.  Lloyd Crouse, a Conservative  MP representing Lunenberg,  found this sort of explanation  totally unacceptable. He moved  that the $3,00 be reinstated in  the estimates. ^  The battle was joined Should  the Lunenberg fair be the yOhly  one in Canada to receive such,  a'��� grant. If so why? If not why  hot? Should there be more such  grants'to other fairs? It did  help sell Canadian 'fish. It did  not help1 sell Canadian fish.,  After half an hour of this stren  uous'^debate I joined the dis-  cussion; myself. If ?I ^said, the  committee dealt with the rest of  the $75 millions at this" rate,  12,500 hours of study would be  needed. Calculated on a 40 hour  work week, with a two week vacation period .each year, this  would keep the standing committee on the subject of fisheries estimates until 1977. But of  course this will not happen.  '. 'After exhausting ourselves on  to come to a' vote at some fu-  the Lunenberg fair grant (still  tiire meeting) we shall pass larger estimates with increasing  speed until eventually the expenditure of tens of millions will  ocupy the committee for only  a few minutes.  "Thus the estimates will pass.  But there should be some better  system devised.  Serious damage could be done  to the Canadian^ parliamentary  system by permitting television  reporting of the House of Commons," according to Paul St.  Pierre (MP Coast Chiicotin.)  Speaking during a debate on a  move by the government'to v refer the question to the standing  committee on procedure and organization, St. Pierre said he  ^favored the study but had grave  reservations about televising debates. . ���:-':>',    '������::'".- '���:.���; :J"  If television, tapes of commons  proceedings were edited for  news interest, he said, public  understanding of the process of  government might be damaged  instead of aided. "Nothing  would have quite as much hews  interest as an honoraijle member coming into the chamber in  clown costume, on a pogo stick,  down the Centre aisel... .There :  will be a tendancv for hon. members at leasts to be sometimes  colorful at the expense of being  sensible," he said.  Jack Horner (Conservative-  Crowfoot) voiced similar objections to the sugges^on. The  question is recognized in Ottawa  as one in which Jthere are major divisions of opinion within  the Liberal, Conservative, New  Democratic, and Raliement  Creditiste parties. Most observers think opinions vary so  widely that, no party will present a united front when the  issue comes to a vote.

Think twice before you speak  if you intend to say what you  really think.  an  increase  Inflation Mainly to Blame       \ .  Inflation is something.eyeryone has learned.about the hard way.  The cost of food, housing, services, in fact almost everything in  the family budget has risen to record levels. Dominion Bureau of  Statistics records show that the cost of living has risen 20% "since  1961. '. ���  One of the few exceptions in British Columbia during this period  of rising prices has been the cost of electricity. According to the  Dominion Bureau of Statistics, the consumer price index (1961 =  100) for domestic urban electric rates in July 1969, reached a level  of 112.4 for Canada. For British Columbia, using the new rates, a  comparable index wouIdbe91 ��� the reverse of the national irerid.  Inflation Has Caught Up with B.C. Hydro, too.  Like other major utilities throughout Canada and the United  States, we are caught in an unprecedented inflationary squeeze.  Post of "Money  One of the big factors contributing to the need for a rate  increase is the cost of money that must be borrowed to pay for  new generating plants, transmission lines, substations and distribution facilities to serve hew customers. The following table,  taken from Bank of Canada Statistical Summary for the month of  January-..'1970, shows the rapid rise in interest rates paid since 1965  on selected Provincial bond issues:  DATE  December 1965..

Hydro have increased over 50% since 1962. As an example of  this trend, the following table shows how a journeyman lineman's  hourly rate has changed since April 1, 1967.  ��� -~                               .;���'���'  ..   ;.., ���-. .���.       r. .- ...

Hourly rate increases, effective April 1, 1969, and January 1,  1970, for a B.C. Hydro journeyman lineman, amount to 15.9%  over the nine-month period.  Other Hydro labour costs also h^ve risen steadily.  Other Costs Up, too  Inflation has affected practically everything B.C. Hydro buys  ��� wire, poles, trucks, office sup^Ues and other equipmertf and  services.  School taxes and grants paid by Hydro fo cities and municipalities also have risen sharply ��� from $7.1 million in 1962 to $15  rniUion in 1969.  Rates Favour Residential Customers  Rates are being increased for all classes of customers ������ residential, commercial and industrial. Rate structures have and will  continue to favor residential customers but revenues now have  fallen considerably below the costs of providing service to them.  The volume and pattern of electrical use in households makes it  relatively more expensive to serve residential customers than  other classes of customed (in-  cludingbilling, xecpras and meter readmg) average ab^ $4 a  month for each residential account before any electricity is used.  Bills to many residential customers do not even cover these costs.  COMPARISON OF B.C.

Hydro residential rates  willbebelowtheaverageacrossNorth America. There are as many  areas with higher rates as with lower rates. Naturally, most critics  select the latter. Such comparisons are meaningless unless all the  factors affecting rates are considered ��� just as it would be meaningless to compare B.C. Hydro rates with those in areas where  electricity costs more.  RATES IN ANY AREA REFLECT THE COSTS OF PROVIDING SERVICE.  Electricity Still Today's Best Bargain  The new rates will result in increased bills for all customers.  Despite the increases, rates for most residential customers will  still be below the rates charged in 1961��� pot a bad record after  several years of galloping inflation.

A Few Facts ,  1. No power, is exported to the United States on a firm basis except very  small amounts to the isolated communities of Point Roberts, Washington and Hyder, Alaska.  2. During the.past five years, B.C. Hydro has imported from the United  States far more power than it has exported.  3. Columbia River projects have been financed to date entirely out of funds  received from the United States under the terms of the Columbia River  Treaty. The Columbia projects have had no effect whatsoever on B.C.  Hydro's operating costs.  4. Over 50% of the electrical energy used by Hydro customers today comes  from the Peace River project.  5. Electric rates are increasing throughout North America. Utilities in  Quebec, Ontario, Alberta and other provinces and electric companies  in many American cities, including Portland. Chicago, San'Francisco  and New York, have announced or are planning rate increases.  6. Approximately 50,000 of B.C. Hydro's residential customers have been  paying less for electricity than they would have on Toronto, Winnipeg  or Seattle rates.  7. Since B.C. Hydro was formed in 1962, overall rate reductions have saved  customers over $170 million.  B.C. HYDRO Coast News, March 4, 1970.

Gibsons, 886-9303  During the. budget debate in  the house, I spoke on the increase of the supplementary social allowance to old age security cases, to a total of $150.  I would like to clarify the subject to help pensioners to understand their own position.  First of all, the Old Age Security Pension for those 65 years  of age and oyer is now $79.58.  If an individual has no other  income, he is eligible for the  guaranteed income supplement  or any portion thereof, depending upon the income test  The total amount of this supplement is now $31.83. Both of  these two programs, Old Age  Security and Guaranteed Income are administered federally. The total of these two programs is $111.41. Should the  pensioner require more assistance for his living cost then the  province will provide up to $38.-  59 per month more to meet such  extra costs���to a maximum of  $150, which is the highest paid  in Canada.  The single person on their pre-  added budget is allowed $90,  which includes food, clothing,  miscellaneous needs and general allowance.  Therefore, the; only requirement to obtain the $150 maximum is that his shelter and utilities requires $60 or more per  month.

W.AX!.  Bennett," gives further opportunity to British Columbians to do  so. This legislation offers those  who have been in a rental situation in British Columbia either an- outright grant of up to  $500, non repayable, or a second mortgage of $2,500 on the  purchase of an older home.  The previous legslation is  still in effect, that as, on the  purchase of a new home, $1,000  outright grant or $5,000 Second  Mortgage. The new legislation  is designed to help the tenants  in our communities. The following points should be made  known for the information of  families considering the purchase of an older home using  the new legislation:  Any property purchased before April I, 1970 will not qualify.  If you wish to hold a particular home for when the new legislation is proclaimed, it is possible to take an option to be exercised after April 1, 1970.  The applicant must be a ten-  nant occupying rental accommodation in British Columbia for  not less than two years immediately proceeding date of purchase of the property in respect  to which he is applying.  Date of purchase must be between April 1, 1970 and March  31, 1971, both dates inclusive.  There must be a first mortgage at least equal to the provincial loan-  Interest rate of mortgage is  &3A  percent.  If there is no default, 10 percent of the required previous  twelve payments (not exceeding  $25.) is refunded. On a 25 year  mortgage; -this reduces the. effective interest rate tolVz percent. ^  If  the  borrower who is  the  bread-winner dies, the province-  forgives     the remaining debt.  (There is no charge for this service.)  ,    . .    ,     r  The cheque for either the loan  orv the grant is released only  after the applicant is in occupation of the house,, .but the Government will issue a Letter of  Intent in advance sq the applicant will know how much money  will be forthcoming.  Requests for application forms  for the $500. grant or the $2,500  loan can only be met after this  Bill is passed by the legislature,  and becomes law. This would  normally be towards the end of  March.  This resume of the newest  opportunities for home ownership in British Columbia does  not outline all the details.

Mar. 4, 11, 18, 25 COAST DiRECTORy  (By  a Practicing Lawyer)  Our present divorce laws authorize the courts, to grant a divorce on 16 different grounds.  As a consequence,, divorce actions are common. [ This is, however, not the only remedy for  an unwanted matrimonial union. Divorce is not the answer  for a person whose .religioiis  faith forbids, at. Desertion is hot  a ground for divorce.  The judicial separation is frequently overlooked when considering'legal remedies to cure  matrimonial problems. What is  a judicial separat&oh? It is! similar to a divorce but the parties cannot remarry. It provides  for a separation backed by a  court order. The usual other  rights flow from it^interim alimony and maintenance for the  wife and children, the securing  of the wife's costs, costs, custody of children and visiting  rights to children.  The grounds are adultry, cruelty ahd\desertion for two years  or more. The defendant (the per  son sued) may defend the action  by denying the offence(s) alleged and then it would, be a  has good year  Net income for 1969 of the  Pender Harbour Credit Union  totalled $7,984 after transferring  $1,996 of net profit to^the guarantee reserve, it was: reported  at the annual meeting Feb. 27  at Lord Jim's Lodge, Secret  Cove.  ������-���.'��� i'Ax:-'. ;   v  Income totalled $20,378 and  expenses involved $10,397 leaving a net profit of $9,980 from  which $1,996 was taken for the  guarantee reserve.  To the net earnings of $7,984  the 1968 balance af $364 was added making a total undivided  surplus of $8,349 of which $7^  371 went to share dividends and  $775 to patronage refunds. There  is, an -undivided surplus of $202  to be carried Over into 1970.  The balance sheet showed  $55,459 cash funds and loans  amounting to $159,491 plus investments amounting to $7,960  and about $9,600 in property  and furniture.  WANT S0METH W6 D0NE1  You'll find the help you need  (Copyright)  majter for the judge's decision  after a . trial-���depending on  . whose witnesses he believed^  The defendant may raise the defence that the court does not  have jurisdiction as the party  suing (the plaintiff) is not domiciled in the area over which the  court..-has;: jurisdiction. The det  fendant may also raise as a defence' one of the absolute or discretionary bars.  An" absolute bar prevents the  plaintiff from succeeding. These  are collusion, connivance and  condonation. . Collusion is a  fraudulent agreement between  the parties to deceive the court,  whereby the defendant commits,  or appears to commit, the matrimonial offence alleged for the  purpose of obtaining the judicial  separation sued for. Connivance  consists of the plaintiff allowing  or encouraging the defendant to  commit the matrimonial offence  alleged. Condonation means for- '_  giveness of the offence by the  plaintiff and usually consists of  the parties having intimate re1-  lations after the plaintiff has  learned of the defendant's actions.  A discretionary bar  may or  may hot prevent the judicial ses-  paration being granted, depend- .  ing on the eircumtances of the  case. The discretionary bars are *  four in number; Adultry by the  plaintiff, cruelty by the plaintiff,  desertion by the plaintiff, and  delay in suing. These are self-  explanatory. In the first three  cases they are the came as the  grounds for the judicial separation itself and it is. mainly a  matter  of   detejnmining   which  party committed the matrimonial offence first and whose action really caused the estrangement.  KThere are many qualifications  and exceptions to these rules  and in some cases the law can  be quite complex.

As regards the matter of the  application itself the committee  finds that the Dayton & Knight  survey recommends the discharge of untreated sewage into the Strait of Georgia off Gospel Rock. The brief of the village of Gibsons, being an integral part of tineir application  made available to the committee  by the director, Pollution Control branch���provides under  para 4 for the installation of the  sewerage system in two phases  over a period of three years,  with collection system and outfall to be installed in phase 1,  additional collecting lines and  some sort of treatment plant in  the second phase only.  Considering the evidence av-  v ailable, the committee is forced  to conclude that during the interval between phase 1 and the  completion of phase 2 over a  three-year period or longer untreated sewage will in fact be  discharged off Gospel Rock  notwithstanding the declarations  made to the board.  Other facets of the brief also  call for closer scrutiny, but the  committee could not review  them, because of the required  information     unobtainable     to  date.  Taking into.account the powers of the director, Pollution  Control branch, under Sec. 6  (b) of the act, under which he  can give any extension for completion of the works as he sees  fit, there is no way even to estimate a positive date, when discharge of untreated sewage  would cease in the forseable future. '���  The committee therefore  makes the recommendation that  objection be filed against the  village's application and upheld  until such time as the board  can be fullyj- satisfied that untreated sewage shall not be discharged from the Gibsons sewage system at any time and other requirements fully met.  .  Request by various, organizations and individuals that the  Regional District assume functions of pollution control; The  committee discussed: all correspondence on file pertaining to  the subject, including a recently  arrived letter from the director,  Pollution Control branch, in connection with a. hearing on Mar.  11,-1970, into an application for  installation, of a sewage system  in Electoral Area B.  The committee took under advisement reports that legislation  is presently being prepared to  charge regional districts with  aii- pollution control and other  legislation requiring the upgrading of existing sewage system to much higher standards  to be completed over the next  few years.  The committee feels, however,  that at this time not enough is  known about federal or provincial pollution standards for us  to assume a satisfactory control function at this time. Furthermore, such control could only be effectively exercised, if  co-ordinated with the other municipalities and regional districts bordering the Strait of  Georgia.  The committee, therefore recommends that steps be taken  forthwith to co-ordinate our efforts with these other district;;  by placing relevant resolutions  before the Association of Vancouver Island municpalilies, of  which the district is a member,  which eventually will lead to  commonly agreed and enforceable standards.  In    Tespect of  the Pollution  Control branch's request for our  view   on the   application re   a  sewage system in Area B, it is  recommended  that  similar   arrangements are being made with  the Pollution Control branch, as  so   satisfactorily working   with  the department of lands & forests,   under which  the  district  is    supplied    with    information  about all applications affecting  the  Sunshine Coast,  to be  reviewed by the board. The Pollution Control branch should also  be advised that in view of the  necessity of upgrading substandard installations  in  the  near  future,   no   permit 'should   be  granted for any new installation,  8      Coast News, March 4, 1970.  which would hot meet the higher  minimum standards. As far as  the Sunshine Coast Regional District is concerned, raU. permits  for sewage disposal should now  require that at least; secondary  treatment plants be constructed  and be fully operational .prior  to any dischargev of sewage taking place. The application in  question, providing only a primary Imhoff tank system should  be objected to., on the grounds  that the- proposed treatment is  insufficient.-   ; ;���: .- :  Delegation Mr. Lynn re. correction of boundary between  Selma Park and Davis Bay���  Specified Street Lighting areas.  The committee reexamined  the correspondence on file and  the resolution passed by the  board in the matter.  It was established that the  board acted in the August meeting according to what was believed of haying been requested  by Mr. Lynn, petitioning the department of municipal affairs to  correct the overlapping boundaries and eliminating double  taxation of DL 1379 for both  specified areas. Mr. Lynn was  advised of the board's action by  letter of September ^3; 1969 setting out in detail the measures  requested by the board from the  department of municipal affairs. ,  At the time no objections were  made to the board by either Mr.  Lynn nor any other property  owners in DL 1379.  Appearing   before the  board  during   the  January,: 1970   Mr.'  .Lynn    complained     that    the?  boundary correction, ,asi. made  by amending lettersrpatent on  request of the board in- Septem?  ber 1969, now places him into a  higher taxation area than before. He requests a change in  boundaries, reverting DL 1379  to the Selma Park Street Lightf  4ng Service area, after haying  ���taken legal advice regarding  the validity of the board's resolution.  The committee is in no doubt  about the legality of the resolution, but believes it would  have been helpful, had Mr. Lynn  stated his objections before letters���patent had been changed.  The committee, however con  ceeds that the grievance has.  some merit, if in fact the tax  burden of Mr. Lynn and the  owners of DL 1379 would be appreciably hfigher for street  lighting under present boundar-  t  ies, which is hot yet known.  H* The committee, therefore, recommends that the matter j be  held over for a few weeks, until the assessments in both "areas  are known and -the? parties con-  cerned can judge the impact  of taxation for street lighting in  yboth affected areas: At this' time  | the committee believes that the  ". difference in taxation for street  flighting in both affected areas  will be very close. However^ if  Mr/ Lynn and the bther owners  of DL 1379 after reviewing their  taxation should find an appreciably higher tax burden, the  committee would recommend  that the owners of DL 1379 submit a petition to the board. If  60 percent of the registered  owners so request the matter  should be  made  subject  of a  'l resolution by the board and, if  so decided, the department of  municipal affairs petitioned to  adjust .the boundaries in respect  of DL 1379.  ~J  GIBSONS HOSPITAL AUXUJARY  ANNUAL ST.
