 Provincial Library,  Victoria, B. CY  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Phone 886-2622  Volume 24  Number 3, January 20, 1971.  10c per copy  or  ��� _ #  on  oppose Henry rd.  tells council  The Henry Road petitions  came Jbefore Gibsons; council '������ at  Tuesday night's meeting when a  letter was read, from Dick Blakeman who explained the reason  for his letter in last week's Coast  News. His letter to council said  the petition had been given him  by the mayor. He did not request it.  Mayor Wally Peterson said the  petition was the same as that  sent put by Pratt Road people  who voted 100 percent in favor  of joining the village. He maintained there' were possibly two  or three Henry Road people who  did hot want to join the village.  It was the only way to find out,  he added.  Alderman Charles Mandelkau  was surprised that the matter  had such publication. Mayor Peterson added that he was not  asking them to sign. He wanted  to know if they wanted it.  Council received approval of  Sewer By-law No. 211 which permits proceeding with further ne  cessary developments. The approval came from the inspector  of municipalities.  Further correspondence from  the department" of municipal affairs covering the federal government Special..- Development  Loans $35,000,000 fund for municipal purposes in British Columbia, explained that the federal  government had a deadline of  March 31 for applications and  that they must have engineering  and architectural plans already  prepared. The question of an extension in time of the loan from  15 to 25 years remains unanswered.  Council accepted plans of David Lawson of Homes Improvement Limited of Vancouver for  construction of condominium  homes on the lower level of  Georgia Heights. This will allow him to proceed further with  developments involved.  A request for a grant from  Gibsons Ladies Auxiliary to St.  Mary's   Hospital  was  granted,  PAUL  ST. PIERRE,  MP  COAST-CHILCOTTN  The question of MPs' salaries  touches very delicate nerve ends  not only of politicians themselves but also of "people such  as many old age pensioners! and  others who are eking put a pretty/tough existence ron' ihepmes  -: - whi&  I don't want touse this'newspaper column for: special pleading to increase "-MPs'  salaries.  For one thing, the pleader is always at ari advantage. He can  pick and choose facts td^suit his  own arguments. For another, I  don't think MPs' salaries should  be raised at a time when1 Parliament is asking for restraint  on the part of citizens generally.  However I believe it is important that when the nation's situation is improved, MPs' salaries  should be increased. To retain  them indefinitely at the 1963 level ��� the date of the last increase ���- will only serve to exclude more and more ordinary  Canadians from seeking political  office. Eventually, this will lead  to a, house of commons composed  essentially only of  men  of  independent   economic   meansl  This is not healthy democracy.  Unlike the American congress,  the Canadian parliament has no  system whereby an independent  body regularly reviews the salaries  and   expenses   of  elected  members and r e c o m m e n d s  change.   The  Beaupre  commis-  ;��� sion was a move in this direction.  '""Athree man commission was  appointed ���--T. N. Beaupre, industrialist;-Arthur Maloney, law-  ypr and former Progressive Con-  sef^ative; MP, and Marc Lapoint;  a lawyer with long experience in  labor matters.   The   committee  has now made a unanimous report and this report is being studied by all concerned.  ^Contrary   to   a   view   which  seems to have gained wide ac-  You'll need one!  7 Centennial calendars are still  available and they are noted for  the art work they contain, done  by Robert Banks of the Sunshine  Coast, his ihother, Mrs. Williams, residing at Granthams.  Mr.   Banks*  also  did  the  art  . work connected with a previous  (Centennial calendar and has an  arfc-gallery in West Vancouver.  iCopies^of the calendar can be  obtained from any member of  Gibsons Rural Centennial committee or from the^ Coast News.  They are moving at a fast rate  now so it would -be safer to obtain yours while they are readily  available.  ceptance in the press and among  the public, there have been no  recommendations of any sort  from the government, i nor has  any of the four ppliticai[parties  announced a tTrm policy.  The:���epmmissipn recommended  ^dToppingMfe^^  $12,000  salary   plus  '$6,000 tax-  free payments and replacing' it  with a $23,000 salary immediately and a $25,000 salary with the  opening of the 29th Parliament.  The  commission said it was  guided by six basic principles:  1) It is not an exaggeration to  state that the future of our country depends on our ability to secure  the   services  of  the best  -possible people. 2) an equitable  representation of all segments of  society is essential  to ~ a   good  parliament;  3)  The position is.  essentially a full time occupation and an MP's working day  is usually much longer than the  industrial average; 4) Tenure is  uncertain. In the last 12 years,  292 MPs were defeated; 5) The  position is becoming more time  consuming,   complicated,   sensitive  and  requires  considerable  moral courage; 6) An MP must  meet many additional expenses  which are not common to other  salary earners.  The commission, made  other  recommendations.    Of    the    21  Northern ridings (of which Coast  Chiicotin is one) reimbursement  for some  air travel within the  region   was   recommended,   as  well  as payment for  overnight  accommodation when travelling.  it recommended that MPs be  provided, with money for an office in their home* riding (which  would be oif dubious usecin Coast  ,  Chiicotin, communities being so  -widely spread.)  Other recommendations includ-  er reimbursement of up to $200  per month for MPs maintaining  two homes, extended telephone  and telegraph facilities, car  mileage payments, more office  space in parliament and 10 air  trips per year, anywhere in Canada, for MPs travelling on business associated with their work.  There were others of less consequential nature.  The commission further recbm  mended that another such commissi on of review be appointed  for the next parliament to operate in conjunction with an all-  party committee of-' parliament  to seek some fair method of future reviews of salaries, allowances, services and facilities.  The last suggestion may prove  the most welcome of all. For  MPs to be deciding their own  value to the public, now or at  any time, is embarrassing, if  not degrading.  equalling last year's $10 grant.

W. K. Kiernan, minister of recreation and  conservation, and travel industry.  Like the first. pamphlet, printed last spring shortly after the  act was passed by the Legislature,   the   new   publication - includes a reproduction of the act  which spells out the required disposal methods for litter as weli  as sewage and waste from trailers,  campers, portable housing  units, boats and house-boats. It  also specifies that containers for  soft drinks, beer and ale are refundable in British Columbia. In  addition, the new pamphlet includes a list of sewage dumping  stations in  provincial parks  in  British Columbia. ,  A total of 450,000 copies of the  pamphlet were printed and distribution will be mostly th-rough  government agencies and various outdoor organizations.  Copies of the pamphlet are available from the Department of  Recreation and Conservation and  the Department of Travel Industry.  Haddocks move  trustee; prominent official irt the  Girl Guide movement and a diligent worker among young people generally was selected as  Gibsons Good Citizen by Gibsons  and District Chamber of Commerce at its first dinner meeting of 1971 Monday night at Cedars Inn.  The selection committee, Wait  Nygren and Mrs. Winn Stewart,  revealed they had 19 names  from which to make a choice  and after eliminations whittled  the number down to three. Both  committee members decided  they would rate the remaining  three by a vote. Their vote came  out identical as to first, second  and third choices with Mrs. Labonte topping the trio.  For the presentation, Chairman Dick Blakeman turned the  meeting over to Mr. Nygren who  gave his wife Clara the privilege  of making tlie announcement.  Mrs. Nygren told how the La-  bontes arrived in Gibsons in 1953  with Mrs. Labonte as a young  bride. They settled down; had  two children, and looked after  many other needy youngsters,  and at the same time Mrs. Labonte became involved in Girl  Guide work becoming in turn  company and area leader, district commissioner, divisional  commander and Sunshine Coast  Guide division secretary. With  in the last year she had received her 10 year service medal.  Mrs. Nygren in making the  presentation of the framed scroll  naming Mrs. Labonte for her  community work, said she did so  with community affection and  admiration.  Mrs. Labonte replying said  there were many other persons  who qualified for the honor she  was receiving. She added that it  does mean a lot to have a nice  community and praised the  chamber's effort at trying to improve things.  Chairman Blakeman added  that if there were more people  who took half the interest shown  by Mrs. Labonte, this would be a  better community.  Want president, secretary  John Haddock of Haddock's  Cabana Marina, Pender Harbour  announces his retirement from  the marina, having s<o*Id' it to  Henry and Jean Morrison of  North Vancouver and Rich and  Phyllis Attwood of Bellevue,  Wash. The Haddocks plan to reside in Bargain Harbour area.  Mr. Haddock spent 25 years in  the tourist business in the Pender Harbour area and while  leaving the tourist end to the  Morrisons and Attwoods, will not  be leaving the area, deciding to  settle in Bargain Harbour. His  future plans are under consideration.  Wanted: One president, and  one secretary.  That is the position of Gibsons  and District Chamber of Commerce as the result of the withdrawal of Frank Hay as 1971  president and the earlier resignation of Mrs. Lorraine Goddard  as secretary.  Mr. Hay was named president  at the last meeting of 1970, in  November, but early this month  he announced he would have to  turn it down. Barry Anderson,  who was elected vice-president,  having so many other commitments, was unafble to take over  the presidency.

As regards* the secretary,  plans which were anticipated did  not materialize so the position is  open for anyone who will accept a small remuneration for  this position.  Dick Blakeman who should be  past president is still holding the  presidency until a new man can  be found. Moe Girard offered  the suggestion a woman be elected as president as it was a  field the chamber had not tapped.  The problem was turned back  to the 1971 executive for a solution to be brought up at the  February meeting.  ���SKiimiiniMuirmmmimramuimnmummrainmuiuaiBUBH  GOLDEN WEDDING  Mr. and Mrs. William Haley  of Gibsons, who have been closely associated with senior citizens organizations for many  years in the area, celebrated  their Golden Wedding anniversary on Jan. 19.  Mayor Wally Peterson at council meeting Tuesday night said  he had offered congratulations  to the Haleys from council.  nnntinntunmnmnnmnimnmm  School  budget  passes  Gibsons council accepted the  school board request that it be  allowed   a   budget   over-entitlement amounting to $202,465 on  . its 1971 budget. Mayor Wally Peterson expressed the opinion that  the budget had been held down  very well. The aldermen maintained the board had done a fine  job. Trustee Mrs. Agnes Labonte  answered two or three questions  ,. respecting the budget.  -Total  gross  estimated expenditures in this year's budget is  $2,131,180 with the gross total for  operating expenses amounting to  $1,855,455, which is actually only  five  percent above  last  year's  gross operating expenses.  Education department formula  allows the school board budget  to be 110 percent of the previous  year and the budget for this  school district is $202,465 over  that figure. This is the sum that  the municipal council must approve before it can be contained  - in the budget. If a council votes:  against it, the board would be  forced to either reduce the budget that amount or appeal to the  public by plebiscite for approval.  As a result the board presented council a board resolution for  its consideration, seeking power  to provide the additional $202,465  School board budget information supplied by Secretary-treasurer.-J.7S.���Metzler;reyealed that,  during7:19707 the board did hot  overspend iri any section of the  budget except the non-operating  section (trust accounts totalling  $56,960). This section, he explained was self-liquidating and  does not influence the net budget. .  He also showed that while the  department of education allowed  $1,682,990 for administration, instruction, operation and maintenance, the gross estimated  would be $1,885,455. It is here  that the $202,465 extra requested  by the board for council's approval is necessary.  The board will be able to cover some of this figure with the  1970 operating surplus of $51,723  but at the same time it must  have council's approval covering the entire required -$202,465.  Using the surplus cuts'this amount to $150,742.  Mr. Metzler also showed that  additional nc. local costs above  budget limitations over the last  three years have been reduced,  the 1969 figure being $261,719;  for 1970,. $214,686. This vear it  is down to $150,742, or $63,994 below 1970.  The board regretted having  to ask council for early consideration of the budget. The restrictions in time imposed by the  provisions of the Public Schools  act do not permit distribution of  the budget much in advance, he  informed council, adding that  the board of school trustees reviewed the final estimates  Thursday, Jan. 14.  on.  41 calls!  Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department attended 41 calls during 1970 with bush fires numbering 16 heading the list, according  io the annual report of the brigade.  There were three commercial  fires, 16 bush fires, 8 house fires  (5 minor and 3 major fires), 3  car fires and 1 barn fire. There  were also 5 inhalator calls plus-  three calls to automobile accidents and two school bomb  searches.

Just for the record  In view of the editorial written in last week's edition of a Sechelt paper" (printed in Powell River), it is obvious the writer has  his mind made up and doesn't want to be confused with facts. However, we feel it is necessary to point out the following:  This Henry road problem started when Norman Stewart visited the Coast News seeking information. He said a petition was going the rounds on Henry Road seeking to have the area included  in the village of Giibsons. He was not in favor of the move. Mr.  Stewart's visit occurred on the day he received a copy of the petition from Mayor Wally Peterson.  Some time later, Mrs. Sheila Kitson, school board chairman,  knowing that the editor attended council meetings, asked whether  he had noticed in council any reference to a letter she had written.  This letter concerned questions relative to the proposal to take  Henry Road area into the village. We could only inform Mrs. Kit-  son after the next council meeting that no letter from her had  reached the ears of council. We then offered to publish her letter  if she felt it would be of some help, but she would have to decide.  She thought it would help so it was published about the same time  a reply was mailed from the village clerk.  It was about this time we learned that Dick Blakeman was  also involved. This was verified when Mayor Wally Peterson, at a  council meeting stated that there were two petitions extant, in the  hands of Blakeman and Stewart. We knew at that time the mayor  had sponsored these petitions and thought it somewhat unusual that  he did not claim such sponsorship.  The Kitson letter was read to council when Aid. Ken Crosby  protested that he did not know what was going on and he did not  like getting his information from the Coast News when he should  have received it from council.  Mayor Peterson's remark that he "understood" there were  two petitions going the rounds on Henry Road, did not please Mr.  Blakeman and Mr. Stewart. Mr. Blakeman wrote his ^view of the  [mayor's remark in a letter to the Coast News published last week  and Mr. Stewart who had the letter read to him over the phone,  concurred.  It should be pointed out that questioning the actions of an elected group is not interfering, even if the editGr of the Sechelt'paper  happens to agree with what is being done. It would appear that  when the editor of the Sechelt paper questions the actions of a  group, there is "genuine justification," but when anyone else has  the temerity to do the same they are "do-gooders and interfering  Messiahs who have the unfortunate propensity of playing God."  We think his attitude speaks for itself.  The finestljof gifts  Ten years ago in the January 19 issue of the Coast News, the  following story was featured on page one under the heading Indian  Band Donates 11 Acres for Hospital:  Sechelt Indian Band has voted to donate 11 acres of its land  opposite the Indian School in Sechelt so a hospital can be built on  it. This was announced following a meeting of the Indian Band  council Jan. 11.  The- announcement made by an official of the band reads:  "Clarence Joe related to all the gathering the importance of  a hospital, our desire to have it in Sechelt and that we should donate some land required for such hospital.  "A vote was then taken which resulted 100 percent in favor of  donating 11 acres of Indian land. Surrender documents were then  signed in the presence of Indian Superintendent J. C. Letcher and  iby Chieif Charles Craigan and all his band council."  The item is republished so that newcomers will have knowledge  regarding the beginnings of the present St. Mary's Hospital. It  does reflect the finer qualities of our Indian friends.  COAST NEWS  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  In spite of letters complaining  that the $30 per year water rate  was too high for Gibsons, council decided it was reasonable and  cheap at that price.  Ron Haig was elected president of Gibsons Chamber of Com  merce with Percy Lee as vice-  president. Mr. Haig succeeded  President Ken McHeffey.  ' Gibsons Elmentary School Science Fair was postponed until  Feb. 3 owing to heavy snow.  10 YEARS AGO  Sechelt Indian Band donated  11 acres of land opposite the Indian School for construction of  the new St. Mary's Hospital.  From Sunday, Jan. 8 to Sunday night Jan. 15, 8.42 inches of  rain fell in this area.  Chief' Charles Craigan was reelected for his third term as  chieif, of the Sechelt Indian band.  Plans were discussed at Davis Bay to tie in the area water  system with that of the Sechelt  supply.  15 YEARS AGO  With 201 ratepayers in Sechelt  the argument concerning the  vote to incorporate Sechelt as a  village is hot and heavy. The  vote is set for the next Saturday.  The school board has approved building a high school at Pender Harbour but the site still has  to be chosen.  Wilson Creek Community Association members are considering enlarging the hall.  20 YEARS AGO  Addressing a public meeting,  James Sinclair, MP, forecast  that running a car ferry from  Horseshoe Bay to Gibsons would  change the face of the whole  area.

Coast forest industry  and the IWA have appointed  members to joint industry-union  committees that will study special industry subjects concerning the two parties.  The committees were appointed as a result of hearings conducted last year into the forest  industry by Mr. Justice Ne-  metz. His study provided the  basis for settlement of the contract dispute between the IWA  and Forest Industrial Relations,  representing the companies.  A high-level union-industry  standing committee has been appointed, along with committees  to study job evaluation, continuous production, technological  change, and swing shifts.  John M. Billings, president of  FIR, pointed out the committee  work will be in addition to the  regular meetings that go on all  year between FIR and the IWA.  "We have maintained regular  contact throughout the year for  more than 25 years with the  IWA negotiating committee on  all issues," said Billings. "Appointment of these committees  will permit us to step up our  study of some special subjects."  The five committees, and the  .appointees, are;  Union-industry Standing Com-  mitteel R. W. Bonner, MacMillan Bloedel; Bill Sauder, Sauder  -Industries; J. M. Billing��, FIR;:  and J. A. Moore, J. J. Munro,  and Syd Thompson for the IWA.

The information is freely available to involved industries, on  request to CWS offices in Edmonton and Ottawa.  As the. scientific agency responsible for advising and assisting the territorial governments  in the management of arctic  wildlife, CWS hired Renewable  Resources Consulting Service tp  compile the series.

Dayton.  "We are sure that tucked  away in the attics or basements  of many homes in the province  are interesting pieces of musical  memorabilia such as instruments  or sheet music or programs that  were used before the turn of the  century," Mr. Dayton said.  "We would be interested in  hearing from people who have  such items in the hope that they  would be willing to loan them  to us for a short period. We  would, of course, ensure that  anything loaned to us would be  carefully protected and insured  against loss.  "We are combing the archives  now to see if we can come up  with a record of the first programmed musical event ever  staged in the province," Mr.  Dayton said.  Mr. Dayton emphasized that  the Vancouver Symphony Society is interested in hearing only  from persons who have musical  memorabilia that was in use before the turn of the century.

Coast News, Jan. 20, 1971.       3  g game meat  It is possible to determine  whether the meat from "a farm  slaughtered animal or a big  game animal is safe to eat by  having samples examined at a  Veterinary Diagnostic laboratory? .'���.>.-..  The answer is no, according  to the veterinary pathologists at  the' B.C. Department of Agriculture Laboratory at Abbotsford.  It is impossible to come up with  a true evaluation of a carcass  by examining a few small portions L%meat. For such an evaluations so ibe meaningful, the animal should be inspected before  it is slaughtered, and the carcass and internal organs thoroughly examined on post mortem. This is the procedure followed at all packing plants under federal or provincial meat  inspection service.  It is for this reason that laboratory personnel have, to turn  down requests for ah opinion on  the fitness "for human- consumption of carcasses of animals  which received heavy doses of  antibiotics or which had been  treated with a systemic insecticide just before slaughter. Neither can they give an opinion on  meat samples from animals  which dropped dead while being  loaded on to  trucks  or  which  showed symptoms of illness before being slaughtered.  However, many other requests  are not so clear cut and it is  these which cause the problems.  For example, samples are frequently sent in to laboratories  because the meat from a carcass  has an unappetizing flavor or"  odor when cooked. There are  many possible causes of unpleasant flavors and odors. If an animal's bladder is ruptured several hours before it is slaughtered  the-urine is absorbed into the  tissue giving the meat an unpleasant taste. Pork may be  tainted i. the pig was fed too  much fish meal or cod liver oil.  It may also have a sex odor. Sex  odors can be prevented by castrating a boar before it is four  months old. Meat is usually odorless eleven days after castration  but the fat retains the odor for  about 10 weeks, according to  veterinary authorities.  What use can* a veterinary laboratory make of meat samples?  Apart from conducting boiling  tests or frying tests which can  just as well be done at home  where common sense and aesthetic values should dictate most  answers, a veterinary laboratory can make little use of them.  At best, most laboratories can  run only bacteriological examinations to determine whether potentially dangeroits organisms,  such as those which cause food  poisoning, are present. However,  even here it is very difficult to  determine whether the bacteria  were iii the carcass at the time  . the,, animal was slaughtered or  whether they got into the meat  through contamination.  So we come back again to the  fact that ah evaluation of a carcass can only be obtained if the  animal is examined by a veterinarian just before it is slaughtered and the carcass and organs examined again afterwards  Obviously, it is not possible to  inspect wild game before it is  killed and even a post mortem  examination of the carcass and  internal  organs is impractical.  Veterinary clinicians say that  pea-sized, bladder-like formations are sometimes found in the  muscle tissue of big game. They  are cysts which are the intermediate stages of tapeworms that  live their adult lives in the intestinal tracts of dogs, wolves,  coyotes, etc. When ihere are  only a few, they can be cut out  and the meat eaten. However, if  the meat is discarded, it should  be cooked before being fed to  the family dog.

Attention:     Mr.,: Cliff    Gilker,  Chairman, and Members of the  Board.  Dear Sirs: The probable development of a massive gravel pit  operation in the Selma Park  area of the Sechelt Peninsula  has been noted, by this society.  It is the firm contention of  SPEC that, prior to the initiation  of any development which' may  adversely affect a local environment, there should be a complete ecological study carried  out. Such a study will establish  the" state : of that environment  and, from this, can toe determined what sa^fci^rds will be  necessa~ry~tb protect that environment. Additionally, in those  circumstances wherein local ��co-  logical systems* may suffer some  temporary degradation, such a  study would consider what rehabilitation programs should be  applied.  Since there does not appear to  \ be any evidence of such a study,  this society, therefore, considers  the Regional Board should commission a study. An approach to  the problem in this manner will  most certainly exhibit an attitude of ecological integrity and  will be applauded by many.;  The Sechelt Peninsula is without doubt an area for pleasant  living in addition to being a recreational area. The development  of the gravel pit and its associated dock could well be the harbinger to other industrial development which would detract  'from the previously noted aspects of this area. Consequently, this society asks if a cost-  benefit analysis involving the  afore-mentioned factors has been  carried out? If the answer is  negative, this��� society strongly  recommends that such an analysis be initiated immediately.,  It would appear that Regional  District   members   have   some  responsibility towards   the   citizens, the, electors, within their  district. It is, therefore, not unreasonable to expect the district^,  board  members to permit 'ftilliiC  publication of all facts and allow v  public   hearing,   pertaining   to ���  proposed large developments before situations become, a fait accompli. Have all facts been published by the Regional board?  Has there been a public hearing  in the district?  In summary, SPEC recommends the following and in this  order:  1. An ecological study in the  area of the gravel pit and marine loading facilities plus a study of the rehabilitation program  proposed by Construction Aggregates.  2. A cost-benefit analysis of  the Sechelt Peninsula industrial  development   versus   recreation ���  and non^indiustrial living areas.  3. Publication of the facts resulting from 1. and 2.  4. A public hearing to discuss  the evolved facts.  5. That among others within  the teams so selected for accomplishment of items 1 and 2, there  shall be:  -\     a).

In order to clarify details, the  provincial executive of SPEC  will be pleased to provide support to the Gibsons SPEC branch  by sending a multi-disciplined  team of qualified experts to a  discussion with the Regional District. Such a discussion should  be preferably public. We trust  you will accept our recommendation and offer of assistance.  ���Derrick Mallard,  Executive Director.

Besides having to endure the humiliation of those first clumsy  attempts, the novice must spend  hours investigating and buying  the necessary paraphernalia:  skis, bindings, boots, poles, goggles, and apparel.  Try various skis in the beginning until you've developed an  understanding of your own ability. Make sure the skis are flexible and responsive in order to  afford the control so vital to beginning performance.  Choosing the proper apparel  can be a truly entertaining project these days. The choice in  slopewear is in close competition with streetwear in terms of  variety.  There's nothing wrong with  the old standby pants^and-parka  combination, but there's a far.  more exciting choice in style  than ever before.  There are a few basic things  to remember when putting yourself together for the first time.  Select clothes which allow for  plenty of movement. Pants, especially, must accommodate  falls and sprawls without letting  loose at the seams. It's wise to  make an investment in a good  pair of stretch pants. They see  the most action of any piece of  skiwear, because, of course,  your body is most active and  most flexible ibelow the waist  when skiing.

Scoffield, general man-  .ager, The Canadian Chamber of  Commerce, says strong support  for government control and enforcement of antidilution regulations, and firmer enforcement  of law and order, ranked first  and,second in a survey conducted by the Canadian Chamber on  important current issues facing  Canada.  A study of the possibility and  merit of staggering vacation periods in the school system to aid  student employment and' to make  greater use of school facilities;  and the post office to be operated as a Crown Corporation  came next in order of priority issues.  The Canadian Chamber of  Commerce conducted four different opinion research surveys  at their 41st annual meeting in  Vancouver, last Sept. 20-23,  which was attended by some 700  delegates from across Canada.  Amongst the replies on current  issues, 61.2% Of the respondents  indicated they would like to cooperate in a Canadian unity program. More than 85% expressed  the belief that employees of governments at all levels who are  involved' in essential public services should not have the right  to strike.  Opposition was also expressed  to more liberal laws governing  the use of marijuana and against  government control of prices and  wages.  ���Some" 49.1% expressed themselves as not favorably disposed  to the proposal that all Canadians should have a guaranteed  annual income with 27.6% expressing themselves as favorably disposed and 21.6% not sure  The second survey conducted  among the delegates was to determine the priority rating of  the respondents on a list of 22  subjects. 228 delegates rated the  subjects as high, medium, and  low priority.  The following subjects were  rated as high priority by two-  thiirds of the respondents or  more in the descending order  that follows:  1. Inflation (more than 80%)  2.

In the third survey, the purpose of the questionnaire was to  determine the reaction of the  delegates regarding the Impact  on the public and governments  of the various levels of the Cham  ber movement in Canada. There  were 211 respondents.  Delegates were invited to rate;  the effectiveness of the various  levels of 'the Chamber movement with governments and the  news media by indicating their  rating as good, fair, or poor.  The dangest number of respondents measured the effectiveness  of the Canadian Chamber with  the federal government as fair  (60%) with 91% indicating either  good or fair; and rated the news  media reports and comments on  the Canadian Chamber as fair  (44%) with 87% replying either  good or fair.  The effectiveness of the pro  vincial Chamber with the provincial legislature was rated fair  (47%) with 78% stating either  good or fair. News media reports and comments concerning  provincial Chambers secured a  fair rating (52%) with 76% rating good or fair.  Community boards or chambers effectiveness in community  affairs, including civic government relations, were rated good  (44%) with 87% answering either  good or fair. News media reports  and   comments   on  com-  Your  munity boards and chambers  were considered good (41%)  with 82% indicating good1 or fair  The fourth survey form was  mailed to delegates following the  41st annual meeting of the Canadian Chamber to secure an evaluation of the annual meeting.  The delegates were almost unanimously of the opinion that the  subjects at the plenary sessions  were timely and topical (111-3)  and that most speakers effectively stimulated discussion on  these topics (103-11).  6       Coast News, Jan. 20, 1971.  Other topics mentioned1 by the  respondents as appropriate for  consideration included pollution,  free enterprise, and inflation  There was a division of opin:  ion with respect to the type of  sessions which were ibest with  the workshop sessions nosing  out the plenary sessions 52-42.  The delegates generally expressed their feeling that they  had benefitted personally by  participation in the annual meeting and felt that their business  or profession and their community boards or chambers benefitted from their participation.

What is an  act of parliament? Do both Canadian and British Columbia statutes have the force of law? Do  acts of the British parliament  govern us? ,  .Answer: A statute and an act  are the same thing. A federal  statute is a law passed by the  Canadian parliament. A provincial statute is a law passed by  the British Columbia legislative  assembly. Canadian statutes  have the force of law pertaining  to matters that the federal government can legislate on, for  example, foreign affairs, crime,  divorce, national defence, etc.  British Columbia statutes apply  only to matters that the provincial government can legislate on  property and civil rights, public  lands, marriage, municipal affairs, etc.  To find the answer to a legal  problem a lawyer must consider  consulting four sets of statutes:  Canadian statutes back to 1867.  British Columbia statutes back  to 1858, British statutes back to  1707 and English statutes back  to 1066.  Canada was formed in 1867  into a federation of four provinces, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick,  Quebec and Ontario. British Columbia joined in 1871.  British Columbia became a  self-governing British colony in  1858 and took the law of England as it stood at that time,  thereafter having the power to  repeal or amend British law insofar as it pertained to local affairs. After 1871 British Columbia could legislate on those subjects assigned to it by the constitution (the British North America Act) examples of which  are given above.  Occasionally British statutes  back to 1707 must be consulted,  and still have the force of law  unless they have been repealed,  amended or the subject matter  dealt with by federal or provincial statutes. The separate kingdoms of England and Scotland  ceased to exist in 1707 when they  were united under Anne into the  United Kingdom of Great Britain.

Very rarely, English statutes  back to the Norman conquest, in  1066, under William I, must be  studied. Earlier Saxon, Danisflh,  Norse and Celtic laws are not  now binding.  It is scandalous in this day  and age that these ancient  quaintly worded British and Eng  lish statutes have not been  brought up to date and incorporated in organized form in our  Canadian and British Columbia  statutes. There is really scant  excuse why the public should  have to pay legal fees to lawyers to pore over ancient dusty  books in an effort to unearth  and understand, through a maze  of out-moded verbiage, what, if  any, of their contents apply to  current problems.  Municipal by-laws must also  often be considered for such  problems as municipal taxation,  licensing, traffic control, etc.  B.C. fop male  athlete sought  The B.C. Sports Federation is  asking the public to help choose  the top male athlete, female athlete and team of the last 100  years.

The awards will be presented  at a later date to allow time for  nominations for the three special  awards. Award nominations  close February 1.  Names nominated for best  male athlete, female athlete and  team of the last 100 years will  be publicized throughout the  province and the public will be  asked to vote for the athletes  and team of their choice.  Other awards which cover six  categories ��� Secondary school  athlete of the year, junior athlete of the year, university athlete of the year, senior athlete  of the year, team of the year  and over-all athlete of the year  ��� will be presented at the same  time as the special centennial  awards at the banquet which will  be held at the Villa Motor Inn.  Labor scene  Manufacturing firms are instructing their architects to provide modern comfort conditions  in their new buildings in order  to attract and retain suitable  production line employees, reports the Canadian Hydronies  Council. .  Comfort amenities include  such things as a radiant system  of hot water piping embedded in  the floor to prevent cold feet.
