When.issued such  a permit will be subject to appeal under the Pollution Control  Act.  The appeals before the board  are disallowed on the basis that  essentially the same information  was available to the Director  and appellants as was contained  in the application by the Village  of Gibsons, dated December 30,  1969, and such information could  be sufficient to make a decision  without a public hearing by the  Director.  ��� Thank you for your interest in  these matters.  -       ���F.

At this point Tin  1970, construction estimates will  certainly take into account the  trade negotiations now under'  way. This, and the increasingly  urgent need to deal with : the  worsening health situation in ~6ur  community, brings lis 'here til-  day to speak in support of our  own application for a permits 1  Three years ago, July 13,1967,  following our notification to your  branch of our steps taken to proceed with a sewer system, we  received a reply advising that  "We are delighted to hear that  serious steps are being undertaken and wish to advise that we  will take no further action while  we are convinced of your sincerity and integrity in seeking a  solution to this matter'." Mr.  Chairman, our sincerity has never changed."-  "it seems odd to reflect on this  statement now,  in the  light of  what has happened in the last  three years. This is the second  time we have applied for a permit. In reference to the permit  application before you, the village, through its consulting engineers, has complied with every requirement of your Pollution Control board.

Fiedler Bros. Contracting submitted a copy of a letter sent to  the Regional District board outlining a quotation on the cost of  laying the Pratt Rd. water main.  Council tabled it for future reference.  Aid. Gerry Dixon commented  on Keats Island residents using  Gibsons wharf facilities for garbage. Council decided to add a  couple more containers so it  would not spread over the wharf  and also heard letters read to  the board in which a couple of  previous protesters had changed  their mind.  , The hearing was held Tuesday  afternoon and chief opponent  was the legal chairman of SPEC  Gerald Galihane, who took almost  ah hour and a half to present his  argument. ' Frank West, John  Hind-Smith, P. B. Finlayson, representing area organizations and  Mayor Wally Peterson, Aid.

Realizing the situation required immediate attention they  scattered earth over the smouldering area of stump land and  wood decay. Having obtained  some control they hiked out  speedily and informed Gibsons  fire department.  Members of the volunteer fire  department and men from the  provincial Forestry branch,  along, with a backhoe, chain  saws and a pickup pumper, hurried; to ithe^ spot. It was; ^neces*  rsary^c^  aid of saws to get the equipment  where it was required. The trail  was narrow and had to be widened. Eventually the smouldering blaze was dampened down  until it was put out.  Both lads will receive a letter of commendation from Fire  Chief Dick Ranniger for their  prompt action which saved the  area from a more serious outbreak.  All eampfires banned  Students for conference  The federal government recently proposed that a youth leadership training seminar should  take place this summer in conjunction with its youth employment services. The seminar will  take place Aug. 9 to 28 at Farn-  ham, Que., about 50 miles southeast of Montreal.  Canadian Red Cross Youth has  been asked to provide a training program, medical services  and staff, while the Department  of National Defence will provide  all necessary facilities. All travel expenses to and from Quebec  will be handled by the federal  government and participants in  the seminar will be accommodated at an armed forces base.  Ten senior high school or university students from each province will take part in the seminar, learning skills in First Aid,  arts and crafts, public speaking, coaching sports, physical  education and outdoor living.  The purpose of the seminar  will be to train young adults in  leadership qualities and skills  for the development of future  community ^projects'.. It i^ hoped  these 100 young people will pro  vide a spearhead for organization of future projects and thus  provide employment for young  people in successive years.  Two local students have been  chosen as part of the B.C. delegation to the seminar. Greg  Hayes of Sechelt, whoj is past  vice-president of the Elphinstone  Red Cross Youth club, and Steven Lee, provincial representative to the National Red Cross  Youth committee, a member of  the B.C. Red Cross Youth committee, and a member-at-large  on the Board of Directors, B.C.Yukon Red Cross Society, will  depart on August 1 by rail for  Montreal, returning in early September.  The students hope the experience they gain will be useful in  developing and aiding local community projects in the future.  SUMMER IN SOUTH  Sharon Fraser, daughter of  Mr. and Mrs. Ray Fraser will  be staying for the summer with  relatives., in Portland,. Oregon,  and Palm Springs, California.  A tight clamp has been put on  , all fire permits by the Forestry  branch in this district. This  means that all camp fires are  forbidden. It does not affect covered top garbage burner fires.  Continued dry weather has  made this edict -necessary in  view of the tinder dry situation  throughout this part of the province.  Fire chief Ranniger of Gibsons  Volunteer Fire Department has  issued a warning about increasing care to avoid the possibility  Of outbreaks, which could become menacing in a brief space  of time.  Sunday afternoon's fire at  . about 5 o'clock occurred at the  corner of Aldersprings and Gower Point roads where thick grass  caught fire. It is suspected that  a child playing with matches  started the blaze. Quick response  by the volunteer firemen had it  under control before it became  menacing.  As the result of small fires  breaking out on the Roberts  Creek golf course, golfers have  been requested to obey a no  smoking sign which confronts  them at the first tee. Roberts  Creek * fire trucks were called  out to one fire which could have  turned into a serious blaze.  A Sea Cavalcade?  What is a Sea Cavalcade, you  ask?  A Sea Cavalcade is a gigantic  community party --  a parade  with horses  and pretty  girls1 and dozens of minia-  '^^Ijl turized pipers  ��� fireworks  and flares  and boat  whistles.  International cyclists on  a gruelling 35  mile course ��� hot dogs and hamburgers . and panda bear prizes  ���- Biaseball and log burling and  fishing derbies ��� dancing, inside and outside, to modern  bands and folk groups and rock  bands, and brass bands and pipe  bands.  Swimming contests and ski  displays ��� pancake suppers and  , salmon barbecues ��� art exhibits and big and little carnival  rides ��� museum exhibits and  beauty queens.  The World's Largest Tugboat  Race ��� the world's smallest program prize ��� pirates on bicycles ��� snowshoes and canoes  and stuffed animals.  Firemen and fire engines and  hoses ���the world"s largest side  winder contest ��� junior citizens  and senior citizens and the silent  majority ��� Dunk tanks and  model airplanes.  But best of all, it is a community working together: a  school board and councils, service clubs, radio operators, industry and merchants, the press  and the public.  In Gibsons, a Sea Cavalcade  happens oh August 7, 8 and 9.  <\  New rules  for traffic  To avoid traffic tieups in  Langdale area a new setup has  been arranged which includes a  parking lot at the ferry slip entrance and directional signs at  the corner of the highway and  North Road.  This has been done in an effort to keep a through traffic  lane open no matter how heavy  the traffic in the ferry terminal',  area. Recently when an accident:  occurred in the ferry terminal  area it took the ambulance a.  longer than necessary time to  get to the scene. Police and  other officials also considered  the possibility of fire trucks having to traverse the heavy traffic  area.  Traffic can now be closed off  Tat;;jGibsons^lrom using ^Northr  ���"road t& getto^^^  this occurs it will"mean the traffic lineup has backed up to  North Road exit from the highway. Thus traffic would be routed through Gibsons to line up in  an orderly way towards Hopkins. Blocking North road to ferry traffic will do away with tie-  ups at the ferry end.  Because of the traffic pileup  on the highway, at rush periods,  a third lane has been constructed between the ferry terminal  and North road, so that when  there is traffic lined up on the  highway, there are still two  lanes available for traffic.  In order to avoid highway lineups, it is planned to construct,  on property across the road from  the terminal, a large holding lot  which it is hoped will hold  enough cars that they will not  have to line up on the highway.  Regulations on  hunting ready  The 1970 hunting regulations  may be obtained from Fish and  Wildlife branch offices, government agents, and all license issuers throughout the province  by July 15.  Changes include: A $5 cougar  tag-licence for resident and nonresident hunters; a mandatory  guide requirement for all nonresident hunters when hunting  cougar and wolf; and non-residents will be charged a trophy  fee of $60 for cougar and $40 for  wolf.  In commenting on big game  seasons, Dr. Hatter, director,  Fish and Wildlife branch, stated  that game seasons were generally similar to those in 1969, or  slightly shortened. Anterless seasons have not been eliminated -  in any management area, although some have been reduced.  TOURIST OFFICE PHONE  To help travellers to and from  Gibsons there is a telephone installed at the Tourist booth in  the Sunnycrest area. Its number is 886-7011 but as the booth  is not manned continuously the  hours for calling will be limited  to heaviest traffic hours. 2     Coast News, July 22, 1970.

Two of our young citizens using their heads, one of them having  been a Cub and now a Scout in Gibsons troop, averted what could  have erupted into a serious bush fire in the back area of Granthams.  tt_ieir foresight in covering with earth as best they could, a  smouldering stump area which was emitting simoke, in dry bush  land is commendable, even if that was all they did. However, they  both made their way as fast as they could to inform Gibsons firfe  department of the location of the smouldering area.  Their action indubitably averted what in this dry period could  have bean a time-consuming job of extinguis'hling a rather nasty  blaze. For their efficiency Fire Chief Dick Ranniger and the Forestry branch are sending them letters of thanks, congratulating them  on their prompt action in averting what could have been a serious  fire.  Moderation needed  A note of caution is well advised for Gibsonites over indiscriminate use of domestic water in view of the possibility of diminshti  ing supplies under diy weather conditions.  There are times when the mayor and aldermen on making a\  check of consumption figures coupled with the availability of waiter, must regard the situation as close to borderline conditions.  It was Mark Twain who said that water taken in moderation  never hurt anybody. The word moderation in the sense he used it  contains humor but if the area becomes rationed in the use of water due to lack of moderation, it would more than likely hurt and  give irate citizens something to write on to the mayor and aldermen.  There are various ways of conserving water and one which.  council would immediately put into effect would be a ban on  sprinkling. This would be regarded as terrible by devoted gardeners. However it is quite possible if conditions do not get better the  devoted gardener might have to decide whether sprinkling a garden is warranted rather than sufficient "water for 'domestic consumption. It could get that bad.  A natural affinity  Certain things have a natural aifflinity for each other. Vanilla  ice cream and chocolate sauce is one; fried salt pork with milk  gravy is another. But of all natural, expected and common combinations none has a more certain attraction for each other than a  five year old boy and a generous amount of dirt.  A boy's knees and hands, for example, were obviously meant  as places to be covered with dirt inside of three minutes from the  time he goes out to play. But how can a lad get dirt all over his1  face, in his hair and under his socks? Why is the dirt always in  streaks instead of a nice even layer? Why is one stocking usually  down so that one leg is dirty and one reasonably clean?  A small boy, well-smeared, a tear in his pants, a shoe lace untied and a happy grin is a combination hard to beat. There are,  to be sure, a few unhappy little lads who have to keep clean. But  1 most mothers sigh a sigh of resignation and plan to scour the bath  tub after a boy has gone to bed.  COAST NEWS  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  20 YEARS AGO  Gibsons Brothers, owners of  Sea Bus Lines are considering  operating a car ferry from  Horseshoe Bay to Gibsons.  Quonset type school rooms  will be built for Egmont and  Nelson Island based on the approval from Victoria education  officials. Nelson Island's single  room will cost $7,500 and the  Egmont two rooms will cost  $28,700.  The school board sold $100 debentures at $100.65. The interest  rate was four percent.

Hoehne:  Dear Miss Hoehne:  What a shame you took it up;  on yourself to coin the term  "money - hungry, middle - class  women" in your recent Letter to  the Editor (Coast News, July 8)  You have no doubt aroused the  ire of a countless number of  worthy females who are putting  youngsters such' as yourself  through those somewhat tarnished hallow'd halls of higher  education. Did you stop to think  that those Very women are  doubtless wives or friends of  your prospective employers?  Do   try   to   understand   that  many of those women wiho are  "monopolizing the work force"  are far better trained and, judging from the tone of your letter,  definitely more stable than you  appear to be. They could be women who, after putting their, own  children'   through    school,    are  simply   finding   life   somewhat  more bearable by putting in a  few worthwhile hours a week.  Are you so young you haven't  yet  learned  that money  is  no  substitute for boredom? Are you  so  well   acquainted   with   your  neighbors'   personal   lives   that  you know for a fact they are not  know for a fact that they are not  supporting relatives, or paying  off   mortgages,   or   saving   for  their eventual retirement?  How can you in all good conscience blame your lack of employment on the very person  who, in many instances, helps  stabilize the economy? Really,  my young friend, with strikes,  lockouts, work-stoppages, arbitration, inflation and bad management the main news topics  in this glorious age, I'm amazed  you have managed to ferret out  this non-existent variety of female for a scapegoat.  I'm afraid the point you were  trying to make ���^ and it was a  valid point, and one well taken  ��� was submerged by your use  of the adjectives 'greedy', middle-aged', 'moriey-hungry', etc.  "Ask (not demand) and you  shall receive ��� and while you  are at it, ask politely. You've  neither lived long enough, sacrificed enough, nor worked hard  enough to have earned the right  to demand anything.

Don't  believe it. I'm a turned-on twenty-one. But I do have a hardworking, middle-aged, middle-  class mother and I'm betting  most of your friends and classmates do, too. You want a job  . . .?

I am referring to  attack by dogs. Some people  who consider their dogs good  will be inclined to stop reading  here. If they are responsible people, they won't. ,  Three years ago, while riding  aeycle on Reid Road I was badly bitten by an old lady's lovable  doggy companion. The wound  took two years to heal completely, and I still have four deep  teeth marks in my leg to prove  |t.  Last year while walking one  Evening I was circled by a barking Alsatian which refused to  obey its master and lay off. ,  Tonight at.Qosy Corner a boxer dog ran fight into my wheel,  trying to bite my leg.  I suspect; that most dog lovers  would consider physical retaliation immature and cruel. Then  there are some who might justify their hound's action by telling themselves that anyone who  is nutty enough to ride a bike  deserves harrassment. But I ask  you, has a growing nutty minority got less rights than a - dog  on the road? Let's make this  "Be kind to People year."  ���Bernard Littlejohn.

That is why the home  economists of "the Canada Department of Agriculture have selected some ways to enjoy raspberries until the next season  rolls around.  Raspberries may be made into freezer jam. This type of jam  is extremely easy to make and  requires no cooking. It should  be stored in freezer containers  rather than glass jars because  of possible breakage. When stor  ed in this way it will keep its  fresh berry flavor as long as one  year. However, you may wish to  keep a container or two readily  available for immediate use. If  so, keep them in the refrigerator and for best flavor use within three weeks. When you wish  to recapture the raspberry season once more thaw some freezer jam! Need you be reminded  to use it up within three weeks?  Another way of extending the  raspberry season is to make up  some Raspberry Puree.

To  protect tables and furniture from  hot wax, the cloth should be  placed on a table covered with  newspapers and wax paper or  stretched on a wooden frame  sold in art shops.  Floral geometric or rainbow  configurations can be made this  way but for circular patterns,  tie-dyeing is the best bet.  Wrap the fabric around a  round object and tie string tightly below it. Then tie string  around the fabric at chosen intervals below the object. Dip the  fabric in a dye bath. The string  protects the material from the  dye, creating a circular pattern.  The batik method of dyeing,  which is in the midst of a revival in Canada, is actually a centuries-old art form which spread  across   south-east  Asia  in  400  AD.  The process down through the  years was long and complex, involving azoic dyes and chemical  baths. ~  Today, however, modern chem  istry has come up with Procion  dyes as dazzling arid vivid as  dyes of old but with the modern  advantages of lightfastness and  washfastness. They are reactive  dyes which combine with the  fabric through a chemical process whereas regular dyes merely adhere physically to the surface of the fibres.  Procion dyes, developed in the  dyestuffs laboratories of Imperial Chemical Industries Limited  in England in 1956 and marketed  in Canada by Canadian Industries Limited, are primarily responsible for the revival of batik  in Canada and in other western  countries.  0.

NOTE FOR SUNBATHERS  For complete eye protection  while on vacation, wear sunglasses with shatter-resistant  lenses and safety frames, advises CNIB. Sunbathers should never look directly at the sun even  while wearing sunglasses. The  tinted lenses provide relief from  the glare but not protection  from the dangerous infra-red  rays that can penttrate dark  glass and damage the retina  Q. What is the difference between curly endive and Belgian  endive?  A. Both are salad greens but  curly endive, as the name indicates, has narrow, finely divided  curly leaves. Belgian endive has  smooth, fleshy, cream-colored  leaves about 5 inches long which  form a compact, pointed head.  Q. Is there any reason why  salad greens should be torn and  not cut with a knife?  A. Greens that are torn in  bite-sized pieces will wilt less  quickly than those that are cut  with a knife. There is also less  tendency for browning to occur  along the cut edge of torn greens  Q. How do you make carrot  curls?  A. Cut long, paper-thin slices  of carrot using a vegetable peel-  ��� er. Use only those with'a strip  of core down the middle. Roll  each slice around your finger  and fasten ends with a toothpick. Chill in ice water and remove toothpicks just before  serving.  Q.   Are there any vegetables  not suitable for use in a jellied  . salad?  A.   Vegetables such as lettuce,  Penfecosfals  show growth  Under the leadership of General Superintendent Rev. Robert  W. Taitdnger, the Pentecostal  Assemblies of Canada shows  growth and increases in giving  in all departments in reports for  the Biennial General Conference  of the organization convening in  Victoria, August 20-25.  Rev. Tadtinger was elected to  the office of general superintendent, the highest executive position, in August, 1968, at the age  of 41. He will preside over all  business sessions.  Shortly after taking office as  general superintendent for Canada, Rev. Taitinger was elected  vice-chairman of the Pentecostal  Fellowship of North America,  an ecumenical fellowship with  more than 20 denominations.  It is expected that the August  general conference will attract  more than 1,000 visitors with  more than 400 voting delegates.  There are 745 churches in Canada and besides ministers, each  church is eligible to send a lay  delegate.  The high peak of the conference will be the Sunday afternoon, August 23, missionary rally and offerama with a parade  of missionaries in costume and  special offerings phoned in from  churches across Canada. Goal is  $150,000. In 1968, the grand total  for the day was $131,620 with 410  churches reporting.  SECHELT JEWELLERS  GUARANTEED  WATCH & JEWELRY  REPAIRS  885-2421  tomato wedges and cucumber  slices are not suitable in a jellied' salad because they lose  their crispness.  Q. What vegetables would  you suggest to use with a sour  cream dip at my patio party?  A. Serve a variety of raw  vegetables such as celery sticks,  cauliflowerets, green onions,  turnip and carrot sticks, cucumber fingers and green pepper  pieces.

The village has arranged for  the elimination of two existing  permit outfalls in the Gibsons  harbor, in that these will be incorporated into the proposed village system and will go through  the secondary treatment, to be  discharged into the currents of  the Straits of Georgia, as required by the Pollution Control  branch. One outfall presently  serves the Elphinstone Secondary and Gibsons Elementary  schools, with a student population in excess of 1,000.  The village has held two public .meetings in connection with  the sewer proposal* one on November 27, 1968,' preceding a  sewer by-law vote which was approved by 77.6%, and the second  in this year, on March 18, 1970.  The March 18, 1970 meeting,  bearing on the application now  before you, was advertised by  half-page advertisements a week'"  in advance of the meeting, in  both newspapers circulating in  this area. These ads, and a circular to our residents, all drew  attention to our commitment for  secondary treatment of all  wastes from the outset of the operation, of the proposed sewer  system. Anyone protesting from  this area who claims ignorance  of our commitment for secondary treatment is , attempting to  d* ceive the Board.  At the public meeting in Gibsons on March 18, 1970, full opportunity to be heard was given  to anyone living either within  or outside the village. Mr. M.  Dayton, pur consulting engineer  and his senior engineer attended, as did Dr. D. L. Gemmill,  director of the Coast-Garibaldi  Health Unit, Mr. P. Bardal, engineer, from the provincial department of health, Mr. P. Bell,  senior sanitary inspector for this  area, the village council and  clerk treasurer.  Every opportunity was given  at the 2Vz hour meeting to ask  questions and to receive a reply  from those! knowledgeable about  the project.  Mr. Chairman and members���  the time is at hand for issuing  a permit. Through our engineers  we have met every requirement  of your Pollution Control branch  and have added, voluntarily, secondary treatment. We now have  approval for temporary bank financing and can proceed with  our second authorizing by-law  which has passed third reading.  The permit is necessary before  we can proceed with federal financing.  The sewer project is vitally  important to the resident population of 1700 which we represent. We can not explain continued iielay to our residents.  Development is being held up,  costs are rising, and tlu> underlying seriousness of our sanitation problem cannot continually  be ignored. Protests against issuing the permit that do not  have substance must be suspect  of having an obstructive motive  only. We ask that you put an  end to the delay now.  Mr. Chairman and members,  thank you for your attention.  ���Walter D. Peterson,  Mayor, Village of Gibsons.  Gibsons and District Chamber  of Commerce, representing 88  businesses and individuals here^-  by petition the provincial Pollution Control board to reject all  protests against the director of  pollution control's orders with  respect to a pollution control  permit for Gibsons.  Our reasons follow:  1. iSince a sewerage by-law  was placed before the owner-  electors in December 1968 to initiate sanitary sewers in Gibsons  the village has complied with all  the requirements of legally constituted control agencies in order to reach a position where  the project may .be implemented.  2. Seventeen months have  passed since the date of first application for a permit under the  Pollution Control Act (1967).  This delay in implementation  will cost the taxpayers at least  an additional 10% in construction costs over the by-law estimates.  3. The   unexpected,   lengthy  delay has also deterred commercial and multiple family  dwelling projects in the village.  The projects cannot proceed  without public sewerage facilities, causing unaccountable revenue losses in wages, taxes and  rents.  4. The delay has been\ caused  by irrational criticisms from organizations and individuals ���  based mainly outside the village,  who do not participate in the  cost of the project.  5. These organizations and individuals have not produced one  little shred of evidence that Gibsons' proposed treatment and  disposal scheme /will degrade the  environment in anyway.    ^  6. All available technical evidence and judgment -supports  Gibsons' conclusion that the proposed treatment and disposal  scheme will fulfil the criteria  and objectives for waste disposal on the Sunshine Coast and will  not result in any nuisance, offense, or degradation of the  amenities;  7. Gibsons'plan was originally laid put to include a large  area outside the village boundaries. A portion of this' area  has since j oiried the village,".' so  that all the proposed facilities  are now within the municipal  limits.  8. Gibsons' plan, when implemented, will eliminate the existing two waste discharges into  Gibsons harbor. These discharges, neither of which was installed by Gibsons, are known to be  unsanitary and unsatisfactory.  Our harbor beaches were near  being closed last summer. There  could easily be a closure this  year.  9. The local government  health authorities have publicly  stated their concern for the  safety of public health. This concern stems chiefly from the poor  percolation of a majority of the  lower village area "and the age  of existing septic tank systems.  10. The plan cannot be placed in the category of- "transferring pollution from the village  to someone else's doorstep."  Statements to this effect can  only be interpreted- as a deliber- -  ate attempt to deceive.  11. All wastes will receive  secondary treatment prior to  discharge into about 75 feet of  salt water. The effluent discharge will contain no material  recognizable as of sewage origin,  and, under all conditions of temperature and tide, will not reach  ' the surface of the ocean where  it might be influenced by winds  and surface currents.  12. Once,Gibsons plan is implemented, the array of improper domestic and industrial  waste outlets to the ocean along  the entire Sunshine Coast should  be curtailed and owners required to install proper facilities that  comply with the statutes. This  will be a tremendous, expensive  program for the area," yet the  installation of public sewerage  facilities for the coast i�� still  many years away unless it is to  enjoy a huge public subsidy  from a, senior government.  13. Gibsons proposed plans  were explained in detail at two  public meetings ��� November 27  1968 and March 18, 1970. Both  these meetings were well-attended by village owner-electors, and  ratepayers living outside the village. Gibsons now believes that  all these individuals and organizations have been heard, have  been listened to, and still have  produced nothing to support-  their contention that Gibsons  permit should be denied.  Gibsons and District Chamber  of Commerce respectfully urges  the board to dismiss these objections and' facilitate in the immediate issuance of Gibsons Pollution Control permit.  Fraser River.  There are now only a handful  of protestors who are in the minority and do not take the time  to try to even understand just  what is proposed, nor the costs  involved.  Two years ago Hon. Dan  Campbell asked all municipalities and villages to look into the  installation of sewers, and now  with an actual proposal, we can  not get a permit from the board  that he is a member of.  With the growth in the village  of Gibsons, we are being held ,.  back from construction of larger apartments, even a marina  and hotel, until we can install a  sewer system.  I believe the Pollution Control  board should issue this permit  immediately, under the wishes  of the majority.  ���Respectfully submitted  v   W. D. Wright, Gibsons.  Sir: In my opinion, having  been a resident of Gibsons since  1935, I feel that all too much  time has been.wasted in the matter of approval of, and com-  ���mencement of the sewage, system for the village of Gibsons.  I am sure you will realize  there is only a handful of persons objecting to the system.  Our village of Gibsons plans the  secondary treatment. It would  I understand other permits are  being granted elsewhere with no  secoridray treatment. It would  therefore appear that the village  of Gibsons is being held back.  Would you kindly take this  matter into consideration and, I  am sure through your good offices that some positive action  and early decision will be forthcoming.  ���Richard F, Kennett  \ Sir: I am taking the liberty of  writing to you with regard to  a meeting to be held shortly in  connection with the granting of  a permit to the village of Gibsons to proceed with its plans  to establish a sewer system.  I am seeking your support for  the application of the village of  Gibsons to proceed with its submitted plan for its proposed  sewage system.  Already the voters of Gibsons  have overwhelmingly endorsed  the village council's proposal.  The delay in granting the necessary permission to proceed with  this undertaking is apparently  caused by the protest of a very  small vociferous minority of objectors.  As you are aware, the voters  have 'approved the project by  referendum and funds have been  provided. Should there be further delay in granting the village permission to proceed with  this work, the funds provided in  the referendum may not be sufficient to complete the undertaking by reason of the escalation of costs.  As a supporter of Social Credit in B.C:, I hope that the expressed wishes of the voters of  Gibsons should not be ignored,  particularly since this constituency might well be termed a  marginal area. '  ���F. A.  Jones.  Sir: As a former objector to  Gibsons i first sewer proposal,. I  now ani satisfied that the village, with their secondary treatment plan, has gone beyond the  government's requirements, and  I hereby withdraw my former  objection, and now approve the  Gibsons present sewer plans.  ���L. E. Smith.  A VISITOR TO HOWE SOUND Sunday evening was this naval vessel which sailed down as far as Granthams, then turned around  and sailed back up the Sound. It appeared to be carrying a lafcge  party of civilians.  Seawall draws comment  The letters presented to the  board were all addressed to the  Pollution board chairman F. S.  McKinnon. They follow:  Sir: I take strong exception to  the holding up of the issuing of  the Gibsons Sewer Permit, for  the following reasons:  It has been 17 months since  the first application, and there  should be no department4 that  cannot make up its mind in that  amount of time.  Gibsons has plans for a secondary treatment plant, which  is away ahead of-other communities now discharging primary  treated sewage to the ocean and  Laurie Evans writing to Sechelt's municipal council describing the seawall now partially constructed on the waterfront  as a horrible ugly monstrosity  and anyone climbing up or down  the wall was liable to get hurt.  He also maintained it was intolerable that so much of the road  was taking away some of the  beach area.  He suggested an indestruct-  able cement wall three feet high  would have been better. It was  important that nothing be done  to desecrate the beach, he wrote.  Council, decided to thank him  for the letter and explain that  steps are being put in the wall  which was not constructed for  the_ purpose of climbing.  Mrs. Alan Greene, Redroofs,  inquired about extending Cunningham's ambulance service to  which the council makes an operating grant, to cover the area  Halfmoon Bay to Davis Bay.  Her letter dealt also with financing; the figures presented by  her not being in accordance with  those of council. She was invited  to appear at the municipal office  and have the financial setup explained. Mayor William Swain  said it could not spend money  on services outside its own municipal boundaries.  With 1,000 gallons of dust-laying oil available if council wants  it, council decided that it. would  lay oil first on the worst spots  and then what was left would be  distributed as far as it would go.  The Mayor and aldermen  agreed that no matter where the  oil was distributed it was not  going to please all so some howls  were expected. It was suggested  that with more careful driving  motorists would raise less dust.  Aid. George Flay during the  debate pleased most mothers by  asking that no oil be placed on  the seafront road as most children would be using it to get to  beaches, getting oil on their feet  which would not make mothers  happy when they tracked it into  the home.  Council decided tp purchase  six garbage cans for distribution  over the village. They will be  obtained through Parkers Hardware.

These brochures were provided by Mainland1 SW tourist  branch which receives government grants along with fund-  provided by the areas involved.  Gibsons was one of 13 brochures  put out by Mainland SW at a  cost to Gibsons of $600.  Gibsons council provided $300  for these brochures and the  Chamber of Commerce the other  $300. This was to be collected  from merchants.  There is also the sum of $300  to be collected from government  tourism sources for opening  up Tourist booths in Gibsons.  There is one now in use and another under construction. It was  understood that there would also  be $300 available for the second  one.  BEARD TONGUE for GARDEN  Beard Tongue, a compact  shrub iflound in the Cariboo district of central B.C., can be  easily grown in home gardens,  says Jan Risse-SawitsM of the  Canada Agriculture Experimental Farm at Prince George, B.C.  The hardy, compact shrub is an  ideal plant for rockeries and  landscaping.  Below is a copy of a MacMillan Bloedel letter sent to shareholders Of the company in advance of the annual financial  statement:  To the Shareholders:  I am  writing to you in  advance of release of MacMdllan  Bloedel's   mid - year   financial  statement in order to'give you  the background for the substantial decline in earnings in the  first two quarters as I feel that  the shareholders should, under  the   circumstances,  have  these  figures as soon as they are available without waiting for the  report to be printed in the usual  form. The detailed report, to be  mailed in about two weeks' time,  will show net earnings after taxes at an estimated $11.1 million  as compared to $25 million for  the same period in 1969, a drop  of 55.6%.  Most of the decline in earnings occurred during the second  quarter when wildcat strikes by  the I.W.A. and the pulp and paper unions in support of the  Canadian Merchant Service  Guild closed the company's operations for periods varying  from four to six weeks. The  Guild's strike against the British  Columbia towboat industry was  extended to MB plants by picket lines maintained in defiance  of court orders resulting in very  serious loss of production by the  company with accompanying decline in profit.  The towboat strike itself lasted for six weeks and, even when  it was conducted legally, forced  closure of logging and mill operations because logs cannot be  stockpiled indefinitely in salt water and there were no tugs to  tow the logs to the mills which  in our case are all located on  tidewater. A longshore dispute  earlier in the year also had its  effect on first half results.  Stoppage of work during the  period coincided with a marked  slowdown in the economy of the  United States where a large percentage of our products is sold.  There was a substantial reduction in the rate of housing starts  from a year earlier and a consequent   softness   in   the  lumber  market which has persisted up  to the present. There is at this  time no indication of improvement in the demand for lumber  and other wood products for residential   construction   in   either  the   U.S.   or   Canada   although  overseas sales volume remains  reasonably good.  Pulp markets  have been fairly strong and prices on the whole have continued  to be firm with some weakness  on this  continent.  Markets  for  the  company's   linerboard   and  newsprint  have been   sluggish,  again because of general econ-    muait aiIU __  omic   conditions  in   the  Unitedwhile you wait.  States.  These generally unsatisfactory  conditions have not been helped  by the government's action in  freeing the exchange rate of the  Canadian dollar. This has forced  exporters to absorb exchange  losses and, in our case, these  had an after-tax effect of about  $2 million on our first half earnings.  The Minister of Finance has  suggested, in a letter to the Canadian Pulp and Paper Association, that exporters in the Industry must accept the jupward  movement of the dollar as "part  of the risk of doing business"  and he stresses the need for us  to pay closer attention to our  competitive position by reducing  our costs and holding the line on  wage and salary increases. He  says it is important that we observe the upper limit of 6% for  wage and salary increases set  by the Prices and Incomes Commission.  The forest industry, therefore,  is caught between Ottawa's policies on the one hand and labor's  extraordinary wage demands on  . the other. The IWA is demanding increases of 48% and the  Pulp Sulphite Union began by  asking for 88%, both over one  year. The Canadian Pulp Union's various demands are in  the order of an increase of $4.50  per hour for one year.  Medium and long term prospects for the company's full product line are good but, in the  short term, it must be recognized that work stoppages over  which we have no control, added  to market weakness, did. serious damage to the company's  earning ability during the first  half of this year.  The forest industry has recommended to the International  Woodworkers Union that demands for increases be suspended until next year pending improvement in lumber markets  as increases are certainly not  warranted at the present time.  It remains to be seen whether  some degree of reason will be  introduced in the current negotiations between the industry  and the unions. The Government  has appointed Mr. Justice Ne-  metz of the Court "of Appeal of  British Columbia to act as a  mediator and it is expected that  work stoppages will not occur  during the course of hearings to  be held by him.  J. V. Clyne,  Chairman and  Chief Executive Officer.  WE   MAKE   COPIES  Our new Xerox machine will  make clear copies of letters,  documents, forms^ agreements,  wills, birth certificates, sheet  music and many other things ���  Volunteer municipal fire brigades provide protection for  many communities across British Columbia. They get little or  no pay for their efforts, but they  are covered by workmen's compensation while performing this  vital service for their communities.  The Workmen's Compensation  Act of British Columbia states  that average earnings of members of fire brigades working  without remuneration shall be  deemed to be the same in amount as the average earnings in  their regular employment or employments, not, however, to be  less than the amount ~on which  the employer has been assessed.  Usually, if a volunteer fire-  mart is totally disabled, the WCB  asks hini to submit a statement  of his gross weekly earnings  from his regular employer.  Suppose,   for   example,   that  John   Smith,  a  volunteer fireman, earns $500 a month working iri the local sawmill. If Smith  is   injured   and   disabled   while  fighting a fire for the municipality, he would be entitled to  compensation on the basis of his  regular $500 a month gross pay  ���that is, compensation of $375  Tfor the duration of his total disability.  Time-loss compensation  is payable if a man's disability  lasts longer than three working  days. Injured volunteer firemen  are   also   entitled to   complete  medical care and rehabilitation  treatment from the WCB.  ,   The minimum monthly amount  on which a municipality is assessed is $75 for each volunteer  fireman.   Since   a   municipality  pays for compensation coverage  for its workmen at a rate of one  percent of assessable payroll, it  would pay 75c a month to cover  each fireman. If the injured fireman has no other employment  he is paid the $75 per month during his period of disability. If  the  municipality has requested  coverage at a higher minimum/  figure and pays assessments accordingly   the   injured  fireman  will   receive   a   higher rate   of  compensation.  In certain cases, the loss of  earnings of an injured volunteer  fire fighter is hard to measure.  A volunteer fireman who owned  a farm, for instance, wouldn't  be losing a regular paycheck  because of his injury, and if totally disabled, would be compensated by the WCB for actual out-  of-pocket expense incurred because of his injury, up to the  maximum allowed under the  Act.  If a volunteer fireman suffers  a permanent disability, his pension is based on the extent of  disability, average earnings and  age. If he is killed in the course  of his duties, his widow and dependent children are entitled to  full benefits under the Act.  About 3,000 volunteer firemen  work for British Columbia municipalities. In 1969, 11 time-loss  claims (where the workman was  off work more than three days)  were filed, while in 1968, only 10  time-loss claims were filed by  volunteer firemen.  *        T rt y j, S5  For Real Estate on the  Sunshine Coast  K.

Household Moving & Storage  Complete Packing  Packing Materials  for  Sale  Member Allied Van Lines  Phone 886-2664 ��� R.R-1 Gibsons  (By  a   Practicing Lawyer)  I got a long complicated letter from a trust company about  an estate and I don't understand  a lot of the terms they use.  This is a fairly common complaint concerning letters about  estates, not only from trust companies but from lawyers as well.  Following ;are the meanings of  some of the commoner terms  used in reference, to the estate of  a deceased person:  Testator: One who dies leaving a will. The female equivalent is testatrix.  Intestate: One who dies without leaving a will.  Intestacy: An intestacy occurs  where an estate has tp be distributed by law as there is no  will. If a will failed to deal with  the entire estate, this would be  a partial intestacy.  Executor(s): The person (s)  appointed by a will whose duty  it is to handle the estate, engage a lawyer/pay the federal  and provincial taxes, if any, file  all necessary forms, gather in  the assets, pay all estate debts,  liquidate assets where necessary  and distribute the estate according to the will. The female equivalent is Executrix and the plural form of this is Executrices.  Administrator(s): The person (s) appointed by the court to  perform the function of executor  where there is, no will or where  a will failed to name an executor. The female equivalent is  Administratrix and the plural  form of this is administratrices.  Q. What does it mean to probate a will?  WANT SOMETHING DONE!

The act of process of proving a will ��� proving, that is,  that the document produced to  the proper court official which  is said to be the will of the deceased is such, in fact.  Q. What are letters probate?  A. This is the document of  authority given by the proper  court to the executor, empowering him to handle the estate.  Q.   What are letters of administration?  A. This is a similar document  for the administrator.  Q. What happens if the will  is not signed correctly?  A. It is necessary to obtain  a grant of Probate in Solemn  Form. This is the granting of  letters probate in open court, after all interested parties have  been served with a document informing them of the time and  place where the grant will be  asked for. This is necessary  where there is some apparent  defect in the will, for example,  in the signing of it by the testator or the witnesses, but it is  nevertheless said to be valid.  Any beneficiaries under the will  or potential beneficiaries under  an intestacy can be heard as to  why, or why not, probate should  be granted.  Q. What happens if there is  a will but it didn't appoint an  executor?  A. It is necessary tc obtain  administration and this is called  Administration with Will Annexed. See "Administrators" above.  Q. What happens if the estate  representative dies before he has  completed the estate?  A.   It is  necessary to obtain  administration and in this case  it is termed Administration de     ^  Bonis Non.  Q.   Can an administrator handle assets of an estate that are  . in two provinces?  A. Yes, by a process known  as Resealing Letters of Administration (or Letters Probate).  This occurs where the estate  representative obtained letters  probate, or of administration in  one jurisdiction and there are  assets in another jurisdiction to  be dealt wdthj for example a deceased owning assets in two provinces in Canada, it would be  necessary to "Reseal" the document in the second province,  that is, have the court of the  second province authorize the  handling of the assets that are  there.  Q. Can an executor deal witjh  assets of a deceased person here  where letters testamentary were  given in a foreign country?  A. Yes. Letters Testamentary  are the equivalent of letters probate but are granted by a foreign court. It is necessary to  obtain what is known as ancillary probate in the local court.  WHAT'S NEW IN MEAT  Look for changes in the beef  industry over the next 10 years.  A review of the beef grading  system now underway could  mean greater emphasis on lean  meat. The processing industry  may be involved in several dramatic changes. There will also  be a difference in the type of  animal raised for beef with more  emphasis on large, lean and  late-maturing cattle. And there  will be changes in animal nutrition. Dr. W. J. Pigden, co-ordin-  ator for Animal Nutrition Research for the Canada Department of Agriculture, says there  will be more emphasis on rate  of gain, feed efficiency and fatness of the finished carcass.
