West was written Sunday afternoon and printed Monday afterrioon without  knowledge that �� by Tuesday  morning the editor would have  received Mr. West's main argument). ..-���'���'  Editor: Your Invitation to  make space available"- in your  paper is most welcome. However let me emphasize right at  the startj that* it is riot "Mr.  West's point of view," but that  of the people. I have the honor  to represent as their elected director, which is also share  many I do not represent including a numberof residents m the  village itself. I believe also that  we made our' - views quite clear  and open at: the time; the-'! village's former application was  under review and many letters  were published in your paper at  the time!: x/x.  The main problem of the whole  matter, as we see it, is not the  sewage system but only the sewer outfall," the lack of communication and the secrecy the village has imposed upon the pro- -  ject..^/.'���'.... ..;,/ .. .>:.  When the first application was  in the hands of the authorities,  we tried to obtain information  from the village to enable us to  come to an intelligent appraisal  whether council's plans vcould  have an adverse effect on us.  Questions directed to the municipal office were answered that  they were not allowed to tell  us anything as they were "in  the hands of the Pollution Control Board." The same questions  addressed to the Pollution Board  plans."  In September 1969 another attempt was made'to get together  with village council to discuss  the sewer outfall on Gospel  Rock with them. Their answer  was that there was nothing to  discuss and anybody interested  t. c^ld listen during council meeting to what was said.  The decision to turn down  council's application for a per-  :/ mit because they intended to  dump raw sewage into the Strait  of Georgia followed. So much  for thp primary treatment plant  of Mayor Feeney 'in the plans:'  -.. Next" followed 'the information,  that besides the permit-refusal  which was widely published,  council also received a. confidential communication froin the Director of Pollution, Victoria, inviting the village to re-submit.  At that time nobody of the  general public knew for sure  what was going on, but one of  the aldermen said the application had to be only reworded  and everything would be all  right.-This was closely followed  by a statement of the mayor in  .council reporting on the visit to.  Victoria that officials of the Pollution: Branch "set council  ���oh the -right track."  It was at this point (Dec. 12,  1969). that I took the matter up  with the authorities on behalf of  the people and made urgent  representation that no permit  be issued without proper application being published in accordance with the act so that people could see what.was planned  and make up their minds whether ho - file objections.* Frankly,  in , Victoria**were answered^that= -~J> 'cannot^Mnderstand'-'how you    delivery-service* daily-to Vanttc^  they never had an application^f^ ;^a��^ay^araT7tfiisy^tterr was the" verTJ"at;tIife'xate'of .'|15 per huh-'  In 1968 ��� about five years  after its submission -��� 1 obtained a copy of the Gibsons Sewage Surveyvand, asked -in, a Rer.  gionai Board hie^ngi the then-  mayor Feeney about the discharge offraw^sewage, proposed  by the survey^ I was practically''  accused of having stolen a secret document, as the report was  allegedly highly confidential j but  was assured that a primary  treatment   plant   was   "in   the  cause" of the matter landing in  the Regional District, unless, of  -course, the village council prevailed,.on the director to com-'  1 plain to: the district about me  trying to protect the interest of  those who elected "me.

Action is promised oil the  crosswalk area, involving the  Elementary school traffic patrol sponsored again by the  Gibsons Kiwanis club.  Last week's school board  meeting decided that it would  ask the highways department  to repaint the crosswalks and  will seek a change in the broken line which allows traffic to  pass each other. The change  will involve painting a double  line forbidding passing in the  area of both the elementary and  the secondary schools.  Authorization will be given  for Gibsons Elementary school  to be dismissed at 11:50 to resume at 12:50 and afternoon  dismissal will be at 2:50. It is ���  hoped this will eliminate possible involvement in 1 p.m. ferry  traffic the next ferry is at 3:45  p.m.  Earlier, through efforts of  Gibsons council, stumps blocking the view at the southeast  corner of the highway and  school road were practically  eliminated.  The planning committee after  considering an application to allow teachers' cars.and the loading and unloading of children  on the school grounds, decided  not to have any cars parked ori >  the Elementary school grounds.  Two teacherages now rented,  one at Kleindale at $78.50 monthly and;the other at Madeira  Park at $60 a month require repairs. About $195 was spent on  the Kleindale house last year,  and $450 more is required this  year and $210 was spent oh Madeira Park home last, year with  $500 needed this year.  Board members were satisfied with the Kleindale state or  affairs but decided to let the  finance committee evaluate the  position of the Madeira Park  property by either raising the  rent or disposing of it.

Joe Benner  Hefeis the report on the event  as placed before the trustees  by Secretai-y-Treasurer J.S.  Metzler:  The maintenance supervisor,  Mr. Rutter, reported to me as  follows:  Re:   Dance, Elphinstone, January 24, 1970. V  The Secretary of the Sunshine  Company, J.R. Snider made application for the use of Elphinstone Gym to hold a dance. This  booking was processed in the  .normal manner but with two  extra requirements: (1) six cha-  _ perons, (2) profit donated to  public benefit.  .  At .approximately 11:15  p.m.  the RCMP Corporal phoned stating that there was drinking and  'pot''smoking at the dance. I got  dressed arid went to the school  and'investigated outside and in-  .: side. The, main lights were out  , in the f gym, several projectors  ,were   operating   and the  area  heavy .with smoke. Although I  saw' only one bottle of beer, our  servicing'janitor had seen more-  earlier. ���  C TJie two RCMP Officers on du-  -^(y-wetre-consulted and they concurred with my decision to terminate the dance as quickly and  quietly as possible.  To minimize; hard feelings and  property damage, 1 told Mr. Snider to start- the last dance at  11:40. An announcement was  .made" referring to; the possibility of no more dances due to  violation of smoking regulations  in spite of numerous requests  to stop smoking. ^--     '  The participants left quietly  and were out of the school by  11:57 p'.tm. I then went to the  Police Station and left a message for the Corporal stating  action taken.  Mr. Metzler added that the incident   was, checked. fout. with  Corporal  Biggeman,   officer' in  charge of the local RCMP and  with Constable Cameron the investigating officer. They reported  substantially   the   same as  Mr. Rutter. The janitor at the  school telephoned at 10:30. p.m.  and Constable Cameron invest-  , igated.   Upon  entering  he   detected  the  smell of marijuana  and noticed a number of assorted bottles on the floor. An intermission was in jprogress and  while   the  crowd was  noisy it  was not disorderly. He did not  see anyone in a state of undress.  He reported back and Corporal  Biiggeman  had  another officer  sent down from the Sechelt detachment as a precaution. Mr.  Rutter arrived at 11:40 p.m. and  the dance terminated shortly after. Between Constable Cameron's visit and Mr. Rutter's arrival, most of the empty bottles  had   been   apparently  disposed  of. Mr. Rutter informed me he  did not see any disorderly conduct while,he. was there.  Three parents telephoned the  board office having let their respective sons and daughters attend under the impression it had  been a school sponsored function.  They were told that the school  had no part whatever. During  discussion with these parents,  two confirmed that their children had seen some drinking  and thought someone was smoking marijuana, one stated their  daughter'had not seen anyone  drinking in the hall itself and  (Continued on Page: 5) Coast News, Feb. 18, 1970.

Mr. West responds  Mr. Frank West, a director representing Gibsons Rural area  on the Sunshine Coast Regional District board has acceded to the  request of the Coast News for some information of his objectives  in the pollution furore he has roused. He mailed to the editor an  article apparently from the Vancouver Sun written by Terry Hammond who took sufficient time to interview varied experts.  Judging from what this article reveals Mr. West is concerned  with the environmental problem involved in the disposal of our  wastes. There is nothing wrong with that. Mr. West should be commended for his action. . -       .  However the perusal of the Hammond article, which Mr. West  doubted the editor would understand, does reveal to''"the editor  what could be termed a time lag in the realization of Mr. West's  contention which when placed against the general need for sewers,  fails to overcome the immediate necessity under present conditions for the removal of our wastes.  For instance Mr. Hammond quotes an oceanographer who estimated that it would take ten years and 10 million dollars to find  out wjhat we are doing to the ecology of the Strait of Georgia with  human, agricutural and industrial wastes which flow into it at  todays volumes.  If we have to wait ten years for a solution to this problem  what happens to the pollution problem we are now facing? Does  it get progressively worse on land and eventually find its way. to  the sea?  To quote Mr. Hammand further: "When the biologist, the eco-  lo'gist an<j those in the.kindred sciences have been elevated to a  status where their unspecified fears, their doubts and their misgivings are sufficient to halt:a project pending accumulation of ade- ���  quate data, very quickly we will find ourselves in a position to control the destruction and undesirable change in our environment."  If it will help Mr. West to advance his cause, let lis immediately,  raise the status of these experts to the required level and sit back  and await results. Let us with governmental aid raise a task force  to get some action. In the meantime our polluted water table on the  Sunshine Coast will reach higher polluted levelsv  Mr. West's actions to curb pollution are commendable and it  may take some years, even if a start is made now, before he will  see much general result for the better. But we are faced with an  immediate situation which is not going to improve as time passes.  The same applies to Gower Point area where he lives, and' its  growing population. Any further suggestions from Mr. West will  be welcomed.  Aii interesting poll!  The results of an opinion poll originated by Paul St. Pierre,  M.P., for people of Coast-���hileotin constituency of which he is  member of parliament, contains some revealing but not unexpected information.  For instance the result of the poll on wage and price controls  reveals a caution where wage controls are involved. In answer to  the question do -you favor wage control l��4>oted yes and 111 no,  with five votes not sure. The vote for price control was 175 yes,  450 no and five not sure.  It would appear that some people are not sold on the idea of  wage controls, yet are for price control. The conclusion to be  drawn is that some believe prices set wages. It is a comfortable  idea without realism.  Speaking in Montreal recently Louis Rasminsky, governor of  the Bank of Canada said the consumer price index over the past 12  months had increased1 by 4.6* percent. On the cost side he said average weekly wages and salaries continue to show a year-to-year  gain in the range of 7 to 7% percent, which he said is greatly in  excess of the trend of productivity increases.  The ingredients that make up our economy must have the right  mix or we have an imbalance which becomes upsetting. Right now  we are in the very upsetting period, hoping our economic specialists will be able to ease the pain One must suspect the cure will  not be pleasant. The suspicion will be correct.  Results   of  a  recent   opinion  poll of Coast Chilcotin are tab-  .   ulated and presented here.  It would be tempting to com-  iment on many aspects of it.  space doesn't permit. The figures below will have to speak  for themselves.  It's impressive that on some  questions, many .people mark an  honest "O", to indicate they lack  the information needed to make'  a judgement So do I, on many  matters. But in politics there is  always a tendency toward in-,  stant judgment of all matters,  and the fact that Coast Chilcotin respondents marked "O" when  they felt so, indicates to me that  they were spending some time  and thought on the poll.  A strange thing emerged from  the last section, which asks for  definition of Canada's major  problem. Under the heading  other, only two people marked  housing. Yet housing���remember?���was a major issue in the  recent election and the . problem has not yet been solved.  Perhaps the answer lies in the  fact that the poll sought opinion as to the major problem:  Many  people  may   agree  that  there's a problem in housing,  but they don't consider it the  nation's worst.;  ���Response to all the questions  is as follows:  CONSTITUTION:  Should the power of provincial government be increased'at  the expense of the federal government?

To the  eight-year old who is patiently  waiting in turn to join the neighborhood cub or brownie pack,  they are the answer to a desire  for imaginative fun and family  friendship.  To the 11-year old, the scouts  and guides are companionship,  adventure and a challenge with  a gang directed spirit.  To the teenage bracket, venturers and rangers give guidance  to youth starting out in adult  life. Rover scouts for the late  teens and early twenties help  the young adult adjust to the demands of an ever changing society.  To the legendary little old lady, the scouts are the gentlemen who helped her across the  street.  To    the    businessman,     the  scout or guide is a young person who can be trusted and one  who has that extra bit of training.  The scout and guide movements are all these things and  many, many more. To highlight  their multi-phased: programs,  the Boy Scouts and Girl Guides  of Canada mark Scout���Guide  Week from Feb. 15 to Feb 22.  Essentially Scouting and  Guiding are citizenship training  through fun and adventure programs which provide progression in schemes covering boys  girls from eight to adulthood.  There are close to 620,000 members in Canada.  Scouting came into being spontaneously in 1907 when Lt-Gen-  eral Robert Baden-Powell, hero  of Mafeking Boer War, wrote  an outdoor program book for  boys.  FIVE   YEARS   AGO  St. 'Mary's Hospital co-ordinating council arranged to hold  its, first meeting in St. Mary's  Hospital, during March.  Tenders have been called for  clearing the grounds set aside  for the B.C. Hydro and Power  Authority substation in Gibsons  area.  South Pender Harbor Waterworks   district  has  called   for.  tenders for the supply and laying of six and four inch pipes  as watermains.  Clearing has started on the  site for the new Municipal Hall  on South Fletcher road.  10 YEARS AGO  Roberts Creek Gredit Union  annual meeting celebrated its  19th year of service to the community.  Gibsons Board of Trade has  asked council to consider some  sort of control over the inde-  scrimiriate use of fireworks in  the community.  The Coast News has concluded  two articles by George Spence ������  a retired member of the International Joint Commission which  has joint control of rivers which ;  cross the border. Mr. Spence  discussed Columbia power posi  sibilities.  15 YEARS   AGO  B.C. Telephones has taken over control of Gibsons telephone  exchange and announces switchboard facilities will be increased  this year: ���  The 35 foot cruiser Anita Joyce  was destroyed by fire while an- .  chored at the southeast corner  of Keats Island.  Tony Gargrave, CCF legislative member for this area  stressed the need, during house  debates, on improvement for  Roberts Creek roads.  20   YEARS  AGO  The hard winter has resulted  in the cutoff of water into the  Headlands area and it will be  some days before pipes are  thawed.  School board trustees decided  to urge the roads department to  see that hills are sanded so  school buses can operate.  Cost of the new fireball for Gibsons is expected to reach $1,300.  Complaints that police protection for Sechelt district was insufficient were investigated and  denied by Inspector A. Clark.  450 in Tattoo  During her reply to the Speech  from the Throne in the legislature, Hon.

Parish Hall, Gibsons, on the evening  of Jan. 21 new officers of the  Arbutus Rebekah Lodge for the  ensuing year were installed.  Under leadership of the newly  named Noble Grand Mrs. Ber-  nice Chamberlain, the group de-  " cided to work to provide furnishings for the proposed Senior  Citizens' Housing Project in Gibsons. In that connection, members embarked immediately on  the construction of a patchwork  quilt under the chairmanship of  Mrs. Alice Cherry. One quilt is  well on the way and a second is  in the planning stage. Any do-  ations of patches or related materials would be most welcome.  The Arbutus ladies are also  saving Nabob coupons towards  the same project. If anyone has  coupons not spoken for the group  would be pleased to make good  use of them.  Apart from this special Project involving the Senior Citizens' Housing, the Arbutus Re-  bekahs, a branch of the Independent Order of Oddfellows, have  several projects which are sponsored on an organizational basis. These include^ the World  Eye Bank and research into diseases of-the- eyes in Rochester,  New York; The United Nations  PUgrimage for Youth whereby  young people of high school are  encouraged to compete for the  privilege of taking part in an  annual trip through the United  States and Canada to the United Nations. Several local children have been represented on  these pilgrimages.  Oddfellows and Rebekahs have  a summer camp at White Rock  for children who otherwise  would not enjoy the pleasure of  such a holiday for financial pr  health reasons. The B.C. groups  also support a home, in Newton  for older members of the organization.  In addition to these organizational-sponsored projects, the  Arbutus Rebekahs have made  substantial donations to St. Mary's Hospital in Sechelt and assisted on many occasions in community affairs, financially and  otherwise.

W. A. C Bennett, P.C.,  Premier and Minister of Finance  balanced and completely  financed within the limits  of GanadaS lowest  provincial tax structure  The $1,165,460,000 budget is a 14% increaseover last year's  budget and is a clear indication of the continuing strength and  vitality of British Columbia's economy in the face of  rampant inflation, tight money and record high interest rates.  The pay-as-you-go budget provides increased funds for services to  people in education, health, hospital and medical care,  social services and urban growth. It provides grants and low-cost  mortgages for the purchase of old as well as new homes ...  increases Homeowner Grants ... exempts homes from succession  duties... and expands a growing network of road, rail and  power systems to tap vast natural resources, create new jobs and  expand the economic base. Above all, it will maintain  British Columbia's high credit rating by continuing a strong,  debt-free financial position that is one of the most effective  weapons a government can wield in the fight against inflation.

(Continued from Page 1)  Subsequent information from  a reliable source indicated council's plans were to put the sewer lines down now and a treatment plant some years later  (which would be quite ; feasible  under the act, if the director^  agrees). This, of course, fully  explained to us what the mayor  meant by "putting council on the  right track.' Hence my repeated  questioning of the mayor during  the last Regional Board meeting about dumping of raw sewage at Gospel Rock. , It would  seem that you did not understand that this was behind my  close questioning and that the  mayor could only be pinned  down to declare that a treatment plant was 'in the plans':  and also that 'he could not commit a future council.'  The conclusion must be drawn;  that the mayor was not in a position to state unequivocally that  raw sewage would not be discharged from Gospel Rock.  Other circumstances giving  credence to this conclusion arid  our increasing fears are as follows:  1. Apparently no plans or  specifications of a treatment  plant were submitted to Victoria  with the application for a permit. Council must have considered that there was ample time  to do so at a later date. Some  prospectus of a treatment plant  was received by council after  the application was already in  Victoria;" A photostait \ of this  manufacturer's proposal was left  with the Regional Board on their  express demand;  2. With allegedly secondary  or tertiary treatment cin the'--  plans' council does not revert  to the 'natural site of gravity  outfall' as described in their 1963  survey, but persists in its selection of the most expensive alternative, i.e. Gospel Rock;  3. We find it hard to believe  that any council would apply  blindly for a permit, which includes the immediate construction of a treatment plant, without having fully researched the  various types available and having before them a recommendation of their consultants;  4. The Regional Board first  informally, later formally, requested full information and all  data made available to them to  deal with Victoria's request, but  to this date were only supplied  with a copy of the 1963 survey  and the above mentioned manufacturer's prospectus of a package treatment plant;  5. The sudden visits by council to other places now to look  at some treatment plants in operation and .only publishing in  the papers flow charts of one of  the far-away plants allegedly  'similar' to the one.'in the plans'  for here. Does this not quite  clearly indicate that council to  this very date has never given  any detailed consideration to  any form of treatment; plant,  being a matter of the lowest priority in their opinion? ?i  In conclusion. I -find your efforts to fan bad feeungs; between  the village council arid the district a great disservice to the  community as a whole. Are you  really surprised that under the  circumstances people file objections and deihand ;a hearing to  smoke out the truth about the  sewagei; outfall? And as far as  the 'unique stuation' -is concerned, it should be obvious to everybody that to put the reporting to the board into the hands  of the finance committee, consisting of Directors Rutherford,  Wolverton, the Chairman ex-of-  ficio and myself forces me either to put up or shut up.  ���Frank West.  Editor: In your Feb: 11 lead  editorial you rightly conclude  that the estimated 180,000 gallon daily output of a Gibsons  sewage plant is a mere drop in  the bucket compared to what  Fraser River municipalities are.  spewing into the sea.  This editorial, 'A Most Unusual Situation' seems to me to  imply that because these others  are fouling our waters Gibsons  may be justified in adding-to the  already overflowing slop bucket.  I earnestly hope this is not what  you meant: Otherwise 'An All  Too Frequent Rationalization'  should be the heading for the  editorial.  ���Hubert Evans,  Roberts Creek.  ' Editor:- There has just been  brought to my attention a copy  of thes; ''Brief re Village of Gibsons Application for a Permit  under the Pollution Control Act,  1967" dated Dec. 30, 1969, and  date-stamped by the Pollution  Control Branch Dec. 31, 1969.  Section 4 of the brief reveals  an dmportant item of information: "The facilities will be con-  stiructed over a three year period:^ The initial phase will include a collection system for 165  acres in the Village, the foreshore interceptor, the pumping'  station; the force main and the  outfall. The second phase will  include additional collecting  sewers and treatment plant.*'  Does this mean that, from the  time that elapses between completion of the first arid second  phases, the system will discharge untreated sewage?  Section 6(a) of the Pollution-  Control Act provides that the1  time for completion of works  may be extended. Is it possible,  then, that provision of the treatment plant (the second phase of  the scheme) could be delayed  even beyond the three-year period originally prescribed?  I am aware that some ill-feeling has been' stirred up locally-  oyer1 the proposed Gibsons sewer system. But neither I as an  individual, nor -this association,  has any animosity whatever towards the Village of Gibsons.  We recognize that, in time, as  population increases, our area,  too, may need to instal a sewer  system and treatment plant.  Our prime concern is to preserve the amenities of this part  of the coast ��� amenities which  are of just as much aesthetic  and economic importance to residents of Gibsons as they are to  us.  ���Raymond Hull,  President, Gower Point  Property Owners Association  Editor: There appears to be  an erroneous and possibly deliberate impression created by  both your paper and another  that Mr,' Frank West is the sole  objector to the proposed plan of  Gibsons village to install a sew-r  er system with an outfall at  Gospel Rock. Dismissing for the  moment the question of on what  form of stationery he wrote his  objection, the" fact remains that  he, while being possibly the most  vociferous on the subject, is far  from occupying a solitary role  and any inferences, implying  such are gross misrepreserita--  tion.  -I; think the-time is long overdue when all of we concerned  parties; myself included, should  make .our voices not only heard  but be prepared to stand up and  be counted, as; fully; endorsing  Mr. West's stand on this matter.  In a letter in a recent issue  of your paper there were several snide references to Mr.  West's interest inasmuch as his  positibri at ^ort Mellon <arid*his^  residence at Gower Point were  concerned. I should like to point  out that many of the main advocates of this sewer plan also  may have "an axe to grind" in-  that they are engaged in the  'building trades, real estate busir  ness, suppliers of material, etc  In conclusion might I add that  I personally, have little X corifi-:  dence in a village council.that  cannot even enforce a Dog Control law, so what hope or prospect have we for them conforming to the terms set out in a  sewage disposal plan?'  ���D.

Editor: There has been a lot  of unnecessary worry and fear  aroused in this community concerning "the orgy" of January  24. We feel this was done deliberately to alarm -the adult  community of the;''hippie 'in-  fuence". In the interest of justice, we have replyed to the  emotional, second-hand report  of this dance. J       r.  The following is a copy . of  our letter to the Times.  Editor, The Times: With reference to your article concerning "the orgy" held on January  24, in the Elphinstone School'  gym, we would like to set the  facts straight. We attended the  dance, arid feel that your art--  icle was overwritten, exaggerated1, and dangerous to the reputation of the kids who attended/  It is. true that about seventy-/  five percent of the people at the  dance were "hippy types", but  that had nothing to do with it.  Just because they are "hippie  types" does not make them  worse than anyone else. There  was not a lot of drinking going  on, and as pop was being sold,  pop bottles may, have easily been mistaken.for beer hot-  ties. As far as the marijuana,  you don't have W go to a dance  to find kids taking it, and we  did not actually see anyone  smoking riianjuaria. Whyy ^  there was so much drinking,  and smoking of marijuana,  weren't any arrests made? It  hardly sounds logical.  As far as we could see the  "various stages of undress" is  completely false. As for the  "couples lying around on the  floor", that happened' to be  during the intermissions, and  as there were no chairs; the  kids were sitting, not lying, on  the floor.   <  We feel that the article was  made to sound like everyone  was lying around on the floor  in stages of undress, drinking,  and smoking marijuana, which  certainly wasn't true. Believe  it or not, most of the people at  the dance were there for the  enjoyment of the music and  dancing. It could hardly be  called an "orgy", and we can  hardly be called' "influenced by  the hippies".  (Signed by a teacher and 38  students)  N.E.

Coast News, Feb. 18, 1970.       5  School dance  (Continued from Page 1)  didn't know anything about marijuana. All three were unaware  of any scenes of undress or undue, behavior.  Summary: There was no question that drinking occurred; 2.  It is very likely one or more  persons had used marijuana;  3. There did not seem to be any  evidence to" substantiate the undress statement; 4. The chaperons were not evident; 5. The  investigating policeman showed  good judgment in the manner  in which he attended.  The following high school pupils were at the board meeting:  Nonie Veal, Ona Burnett, Shirley fHoehne, Diarine Fisher,  Paul Beeman Lyle Davey, Gary  Flumerfelt and Jim' Naylor.  It was revealed to the board,  that an arinouncehient was given over the school p.a. system  that there would be a dance at  the school that 'Saturday  night. It was noted" the announcement did net say it was  a school dance.  Mr. Metzler said he received  a couple of telephone cajlls  from parents and all they wanted to know was whether it was  a school dance. They made no  complaint about the event.  Mr. Rutter' said that on arrival he toured' through the enr  tire area irivolyed and found  nothing unordinary, even at  the back of the hall which he  termed the worst spot of all.  He asked, the janitor to check  the garbage cans for bottles  which he did and still no liquor  bottles were unearthed.  'As   to   smoking he  said  the  hall was: heavy with smoke.  Discussion arose about spon-  "sors for dances and various  trustees pointed out- that sponsors could arrange the necessary requirements of names of.!  club or association directors  but once they got the use of the  hall the directors just did not  mean a thing, their names being  used for the purpose of backing  up the application. Mr. Rutter  said that small groups band  together for the purpose of organizing, functions, thereby  pooling their resources.  From this discussion arose  the need to send a recommendation to the board'�� policy  committee that it seek ways and  .means of tightening up the requirement for applicants seeking the use of school premises.  As to chaperones Trustee  Rev. Barry Jenks was of the  opinion there were some people  there who were over 20 years  old. (It is understood that there  was at least one school teacher  present, based' .on remarks  passed soon after the event).  As to the profit donated to  public benefit as required on  the application for use of the  hall, this angle while receiving  little attention during discussion  will also go before the policy  corixmittee  for  clarification.  Trustee Bernie Mulligan  dropped the remark that if Sechelt has a hippy problem it  should not be dumped in, the lap  of the school board. He was informed that the board room was  not the place for such remarks.  Mr. Rutter explained there  were four motorcyclists present but after the closing of the  dance they drove off quietly.  use expanding  service  The ladies auxiliary to Rangers, and Guides and Brownies  met on Tries., Feb. 10 in the  Angiican chiirch hall with 12  members from Gibsons arid five  from Roberts Creek present.

In it the district librarian A/  J.C. Crane said the district library serves as the central  purchasing agency for books  for all the schools of the district  except for the two high' schools,  Gibsons elementary and Sechelt  Elementary Schools. Books purchased for the schools are also  processed and catelogued at the  district library as required as  are any materials added to the  district's collection of resource  materials;"  At present, the district library  also serves as a central ordering agency for films, filriistrips  and other materials borrowed  from.' the department of education's division of visual education. The schools for which"  these materials are received  are Langdale, Gibsons, Roberts  :t. Creek, -Madeira Park and Pen-  ^der Harbour Secondary school.  As tinje permits, he visits all  the schools in the district to  confer with principals and teachers over audiovisual requirements. For the schools whose  books are purchased through  the district library, he tries to  see the classes as often as possible to encourage the children  to read and develop library  skills. ;  On the first day of the school  year, 147 books, part of the district's circulating collection,  were sent to Halflnopri Bay Elementary: school, which being  newly reopened, was without  books.  Another task done early hi  the school year was the amalgamation of various divisions  of catalog cards into one mas-,  ter file arrariged alphabetically,  by author. This involved checking arid interfiling many thousands of catelog cards, but the  completion of this task was necessary in order to check book  orders which were outstanding.  Book orders' from all schools  purchasing books centrally had  been awaiting processing since  earlier in the year. These were  checked against the district li-  brarJ^master file to avoid duplications, and the orders processed? Many books requested  were not available within the  time limit imposed by the budget  cut-off date,  and substitu-  New power line  B.C. Hydro has awarded a_  $1,172,000 contract to Hume arid  Rumble Ltd., of Vancouver, for  construction of a 53-mile long  transmission line linking Sechelt and the Powell River area.  The new 230,000-volt line will  supplement service to Powell  River now provided by a single  138,000-volt line from Sechelt.  Clearing of the right-of-way for  the new line is now virtually  complete and construction is  scheduled to start'early this  spring. The new wood-pole pow-  erline is expected to be in service in October. It will be energized initially at 138,000 volts.  Included in the construction  contract will be a 6,450 foot long  water crossing over Agamemnon  Channel to Nelson Island. A separate contract for a second water crossing over Jervis Inlet will  be awarded later.  ��� The Jervis Inlet span���11,542  feet���will be the longest over-  water transmission line crossing  in British Columbia.

This, and  the purchase of paperbacks for  schools, involved three days of  personal shopping in Vancouver  two days of which were a consecutive Friday and Saturday.  A display of materials and  open house for teachers September 16 and 17, was attended  by 41 teachers. Many teachers  were surprised to discover what  was available for loan, and  many items which previously  had never left the district library began to circulate.  A second open house and display of materials was held on  January 14 and 15 Forty people attended and the event  seemed to be well received.  A fairly extensive replenishment of the district's resources  is expected this year, and many  useful suggestions have been received from teachers who visited- the district library for the  improvement of areas of weakness in the district's collection.  The acquisition and processing  of new materials will be a major task at the district library.  ROBERTS CREEK  (By MADGE NEWMAN)  History was made at Roberts Creek on Saturday Feb.  14, 1970, when the first wedding  reception was held at the Sunshine Coast Golf arid Country  Club, following the wedding of  Gail Lynn Verrecchia and Norman Smith in Gibsons United  Church.  The large salon, with its picture windows commanding a  magnificent view of greens and  Gulf, accommodated over 100  guests. The , well planned,, kit?;  chen is so arranged that several  workers may easily manage the  work load,, utilizing double cook  ing area, several sinks and numerous counters and tables.*  There is also hot water in  abundance.  The Roberts Creek Auxiliary  to St.; Mary's Hospital were the  caterers on this occasion.

Sewage is essentially the  wastes of human existence. The  used water supply of a community, the liquid and solid body  wastes, household wastes and  often industrial wastes combine  to form the sewage of a modern  community. In times of ralhi it  can contain large amounts of  grit which may enter the sewer  direct if the community has a  combined sewerage system, i.e.  sanitary waste and storm water  in the same system. If a community has a separate domestic sewer system; grit may enter  through a loose manhole cover,  broken tiles, basement drains,  or from washing vegetables.  Average sewage is usually at  least 99.95 percent water by  weight, but the remaining .05  percent of the sewage will do  unlimited damage if not properly treated. Sewage is extremely putresciible, containing large  numbers of bacteria, vmany of  which are of the disease-produ-  ONE OF THE simplest of decorative arts is stenciling, a fascinating craft currently enjoying a surge of popularity.

If  discharged untreated into a body  of water, this will become so  polluted that fish life, will be  killed.  A sewage treatment plant is  built for the purpose of removing this objectional material  from the sewage so that a clear,  pure effluent can be discharged  into the creek, river or lake. The  effluent should be sufficiently  pure so that it will not produce  odorsi harm fish life or carry  disease-producing bacteria.,  An activated sludge sewage  treatment plant treating normal  domestic sewage will give the  highest quality effluent that can  be produced by any type of plant  at the present time.  The treatment of sewage consists of three separate processes  or steps:  1. Primary    treatment, con-,  sistirig of grit removal, commin-  uation and primary sedimentation.  2. Secondary treatment, or the  activated "sludge process, consisting of aeration and final sed-  . imentation   (Settling).  3. Sludge digestion and drying.' '  Primary treatment by sedimentation will remove 30 to 40  percent of the organic load: Secondary treatment by biological  action and sedimentation will  remove almost all of the remaining suspended and dissolved organic material to yield an overall reduction from raw to final  of 90 to 98 percent. Sludge digestion converts the highly decomposable organic ^material, which  has been removed from tjhe  sewage, to a stable inoffensive  sludge.  In the Gibsons sewage treatment plant sewage enters the  wet well through a barminuter  (shredding device). Pumps lift  the sewage to the grit or sand  trap where; heavy inorganic  matter settles out. From there  it continues to the primary set-  ling tanks where organic solids  ,are settled but. The primary  effluent flows through channels  into the aeration tanks. Diffused  air applied to the sewage brings  purifying bacteria (aerobic) to  life.    ������  The aerator effluent enters  secondary settling tanks where  the bacteria, called activated  sludge, is settled out Part is  returned, to the aeration tanks  and part is, pumped to the digester.

PIE R R EL M P  COASTCHILCOTIN  6      Coast News, Feb. IS, 1970.  COAST NEWS WANT ADS  DEADLINE, TUESDAY NOON  Phone 886-2622  Back Bencher's Day in the  house, it was called by Steve  Otto, outspoken Liberal Member of parliament for York East  in Toronto.  The parliament of Canada  hadn't seen a comparable day in  its history. A private member  (Paul Yewchuck, ��� Conservative,  Athabaska) had moved concurrence in a .committee report on  Arctic sovereignty without au-  thorizatio of the committee.  The government was dragged reluctantly'into a debate.  The leading government party  speaker, Paul St. Pierre (Liberal, Coast Chillcotin) opened a  40 minute speech to the House  with a firm declaration of his  intention to vote for the Opposition motion.  Almost a dozen other back  benchers, including several British Columbians, were crowded  off the speaker's list during the  full day's debate. Two ministers  joined in the debate and one,  Mitchell ^ Sharp, secretary of  state for external affairs, praised  the report and said the government was generally sympathetic, to the forceful views exposed  in it. ,   ..:    '      ���  Sharp said the government  would shortly bring down legislation to control the threat of  pollution in the Arctic.  St. Pierre, in leading the debate for the Liberals in the  house, said he was impatient  with the government attitude  on Arctic sovereignty declarations. Action did not follow its  words, he said, and he urged a  unanimous vote in favor of the  Committee's recommendations.  The Coast Chiicotin MP said  he doubted the wisdom of Parliament! treating committee reports in the manner initiated by  the Conservative party in the de  bate. The effect, he said, might  weaken committee rather than  strengthening them in their  work. But he praised fellow  members of the Northern Development committee of other parties and his own, specifically the  chairman, (Watson) and Bud  Simpson (Conseryative-Church-  hill) for their work. He also criticized the opposition parties  generally for discussing Biafra  during opposition days in the  house while ignoring issues closer to what he claimed were  their responsibilities as respon- _-_  sible opposition parties.  St. Pierre was criticized by opposition Leader Robert Stanfield  and Liberal MP Otto for his opposition to Conservative party  tactics but praised for his con-  sis tant work to force> the government to act on the Arctic  ,sovereignty-pollution issue.  Opposition Leader Stanfield  said "I wish also to congratulate the hon. member for Coast  Chiicotin who, although he criticized me somewhat in the process, had the courage to take  a strong position, the concurrence in this report and the adoption by the government of the  position taken by the committee  in this report. I congratulate  the hon. gentleman".  Otto, who disagreed with portions of the report, said "I admire the calibre of men who sat  on the committee.. and especially the member for Coast Chiicotin who led this right from  the beginning, .almost from the  day he arrived in this House.  "He assumed to some extent  today the role of a minister  without pay. He led the debate.  He organized the speakers. I am  glad his efforts have been recognized. I recognize him as a  man who holds very strongly to  his views."  / Committee Chairman Watson  west Territories) also praised  and Bud Orange (Liberal North-  the Coast Chiicotin Liberal for  forcing the issue to public attention.

How can I be sure the government won't come and take my  property for a -road pr something? If so,, what do they have  to pay me?     /  A. The answers to these questions involve- 3 factors���zoning  byaws, restrictive covenants and  expropriation statutes. You  should fSrst check the municipal  zoning bylaws and regulations.  Of course, there is no way of  knowing when, in the future,  these may be: changed but they  are usually a long range affair.  You should next check in the  Land Registry office for restrictive covenants. A covenant is a,  legally enforceabie promise. Restrictive covenants attach to  land and run with the; land, i.e.  from owner to owner.    ,  They commonly cover such  subjects as ycoinnierckii usage, ;  "advertising, prohibition of the  keeping of domestic animals  (other than house pets), size of  fences, value of dwelling houses,  etc. Such covenants usually originate with a large tract of  land that is being developed for  real estate sale, purposes. The  restrictions stay with each parcel of land as subdivisions and  resales occur.  There are numerous expropriation laws���'municipal, provincial and federal and these  deal with the right of some authority to seize land; for the  good of the community for such  things as    highways,    bridges,  [V law program  If you discover a burglar in  your home, can you legally  shoot him. Or, if you write a  cheque knowing that you don't  have enough money in the bank,  but intend to deposit additional  money before the cheque is  cleared, can you be charged  forthis?  These are sample type questions the national television audience will have ah opportunity  to answer when CBC-TV presents Canadian Crime Test, a  special quiz program based on  Canada's criminal code, to be  telecast in color on Thursday,  Feb. 26, at 10 p.m.  TRIM  GYMS  For Weight Reduction  Phone 886-9359  of law  (Copyright)  schools, sewersi etc. There is  but the expropriating authority  must, by law, pay you the fair  market value of the. land. If you  . cannot agree, you do not have  , to accept their offer. You should  in this case, have the matter  settled by the courts:  nothing you can do about these  Letters to editor  Editor: If war came tomorrow, would inflation hamper  and prevent Canada's war effort?  Certainly not! With national  security at stake, Ottawa would  quickly pass an Order-in-Coun-  cil freezing prices and wages  and also appoint <a Wartime  Prices and Trade Board, to supervise and control the problem^ Inflation would hot be tolerated.   -  But, inflation is really war  for 90 percent of the peopled It  destroys savings; threatens the  health and welfare of the people  in .their millions, including little  children. Harassed parents and  pensioners are seized with wor-;  ry and anxiety, while workers  are forced to resort to strikes, .  to demand their rights to a living wage*  This undeclared war is bound  to produce many casualties and  much   suffering^ ;j: Taxes, rents  and     unemployment;   must increase. Social welfare expenseSj  will  sky-rocket.   Public  discori- ...  tent and disorders will multiply.  The lot of the old, subsisting on  pensions, savings and fixed incomes will become tragic. Men- *  tal and physical health will decline,   while   hospitals,   already  full, will be taxed to the limit,  and served by unhappy, overworked and harassed people.  These facts, of course, should  be common knowledge. One  wonders how much this is known  in Ottawa, where the well-paid  servants of the people, play  with words and parliamentary  procedure and turn out promises -  of curing inflation by a gentlemen's agreement between business and labor.  There is a great doubt in the  public mind; We can well be-  lieve that our swinging prime  minister will continue his well  publicised travels, displaying  his versatility in furs, bathing  suits, photogenics and sophistry.'  But, can we really believe that  he can or will do anything to  stop inflation?  Inflation is a serious threat  to Canada. A demand for government action NOW should be  loud and clear.  Dr. D.L.
