Array Provincial Library,  Victoria-; B. c.  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Phone 886-2622  Volume 24  Number 7, February 17, 1971.  10c per copy  Drive to curb drug menace  planned  A concerted drive to rid the  area of the drug menace is jun-  der way in Gibsons and Seohelt.  In Gibsons the Unftt-ed Church  Women started action by inviting the Vancouver -Ucohol-Drug  Education council to visit Gibsons Friday, Feb. 26 to show the  film The High, in the United  Church hall starting at 8 p.m.  Following the film there will be  a question arid answer period  from which it is expected most  peoplie'<will benefit.  Then on March 5 the same pic  ture will be shown in Sechelt  area under auspices of the Lions  club. There will also be a question a-nd-answer'period. W. G.  Wilson, executive director of the  Alcohol Drug Education council  will be present at both film displays. .  Elphinstone Secondary School  student parliament at a public  meeting on January 27 when  they sought help in the form of  a semi-permanent drug centre,  discovered that various other organizations   were   working   to  wards a similar endeavor, with  the Kiwanis club showing strong  interest.  Here is a synopsis of the moving picture to be shown both in  Gibsons and at Sechelt:  Bernie, 17, tells how he'_ became a high school "pusher" as  we see him with hisgirlfriend,  Susan, splitting a quarter's  worth ($25) of marijuana into  four dime ($10) bags ���- andj sigr  niifioantly, holding back enough  marijuana for themselves.  Linda buys "grass" from Ber  nie and shares it with her boy  friend, Mark, and two of their  friends, Allan and Shelley; Then  .; Linda becomes bored with marihuana and seeks an easder way  7to get"v*high.'' She goes to Bernie for "speed," (amphetamines)  'and likes the "high" it produces  ,,;��� until she swiches to a new  V kind and "freaks out" on a down  i.tpwn  street.   The police  arrive  V^and. take Linda to a hospital ���  arid take Mark to the police station.  '   Nobody knows   what  type  of  Support of Gibsons "and District Chamber-of Commerce was  offered to organizations involved  in combatting the drug menace  in this area.  The olfer was made at Monday night's dinner meeting of  the chamber at Cedars Inn under the new presidency of Larry  Labonte.  The chamber decided to send  a representative to the showing  of the drug menace moving picture and will keep in touch with  the movement.  . Mr. Blakeman was chairman  of the .meeting until such time  'as' the new president, Mr. La*  bonte and Mr. Bannie Anderson,  vice-president,   were   sworn   in  its support  by Mr. Blakeman. In has retiring  remarks Mr. Blakeman said it  had been an experience for him  while many of the projects started had not reached completion.  Frank Daugherty in thanking  Mr. Blakeman said as president  Mr. Blakeman had suffered  many frustrations and added he  should be thanked for the work  he had done. x  Mr. Labonte in aSsumirig the  chair said he hoped he would  be able to serve the chamber,  also the community. He would  seek the co-operation of others  Walt Nygren reported that the  chamber's sign at Langdale ferry entrance needed some cleaning up and a bit of paint.  Chairman Labonte' reported  the edifice erected as a tourist  booth had been sold for $225 and*  he expected that after expenses  were paid the chamber would,  benefit to the extent of about  $210.'  Mr.   Blakman    reported    the  1,000 Easter eggs had been pur-'  chased  for   the   annual  Easter  hunt but" that the location of the-  hunt was not settled yet owing,  to the Mainils having disposed  of  the   property  where  it  had  been held in past years.  The   chamber   supported \ the  Kiwanis  club offering  chamber  support and help if needed .on*  their   Senior   Citizins   Housing,  project.     - ' ";;'l  'Quake terror bits Gibsonite  -- Enroute home to Gibsons from  a month's sunny holiday on the  Mojave Desert," near Bake?, Cal-  ,���if��ornia, 200 miles east of Los1 Angeles j Miss Chaddie Bre-riiner ^of  Gibsons, on Monday evening,  Feb. 8. checked in at a downtown Los Angeles hotel. Here  she anticipated a quiet night's  rest before continuing her return  journey to Canada by bus the  following morning.  This, then is the graphic  eye-witness account of Miss  Bremner'is chilling ordeal in  the great California quake  as told to a Coast News correspondent. ���  All was quiet on our arrival  in the lobby of the Hotel on 6th  Street, near Broadway in down  town Los Angeles. My bedroom  on the sixth floor was a welcome  haven of rest, or so I thought!  At 6:02 next morning all bedlam  broke loose. Without warning,  there  was a  dreadful rattling,  rumbling and shattering noise,  the room swayed, shook, rocked,  walls cracked, floors heaved and  ���"���-libllejd-1 -the^pfc^^andt.^flrniture^  jumped, mirrors and 'pictures  fell from the walls and shattered  plaster and dust showered down  in thick clouds from the ruptured ceiling;)  Somehow I stumbled to the  door in my bare feet, as one  trapped in a rtightmare. Thank  God I was able to open the door.  Suddenly all was deathly silent  as the worst recorded quake in  the history of Los Angeles' released its grip on a shattered  city. 7 ��� X;  A lifetime relived in. less than  a minute, an eternityHof chaos  and terror, one could only pray  silently. The far end of the hall  was dense with rolling clouds of  dust from fallen plaster that lay  in chunks ori the floor. To add to  the confusion, the fare-door had  jammed midway and great ere- f?  vices were riven in each side of '���.  the  walL/Scurryiog.under^is %.  threatening- obsfa^-��^I<*el^pUnk)^  tered a large colored la'dy'in^he   v*  small office at the end of the  LARRY LABONTE  Scout-Guide  '-������'i^k - yy  !_&*������  re  Gibsons council, faced with a  barely legible copy of the letter from Henry Road residerits  sent to the Regional District  board ^nd passed on to Gibsons  council for an answer, left it  urianswered at Tuesday night's  meeting because the aldermen  found   it  difficult   to  decipher.  Imports faxed  - If you think by importing your  smokes you can sneak out of  paying the provincial Cigaret  and Tobacco Tax, beware!  The act states that every person residing or carrying on business within the province who  brings or sends or who acquires  or receives delivery in the province of tobacco in any fonm  must inform the director of the  act and pay the same taxation  payable as if the tobacco had  been purchased within the province.  The act further states that no  dealer shall advertise that the  tax will be absorbed by him, or  that he can refund the tax and  absorb the payment of the same.  Also no one can sell tobacco  unless registered as a retailer  or wholesaler. While the act does  not say so it would also be wise  to keep records of all purchases  and sales.  Council  will ask  for  a  better  copy.  Aid. Ken Crosby and Aid. Ken  Goddard: were of the opinion  council knewNsufficient about the  questions in 7 the letter that it  could be answered.. "As? Aid.  Crosby remarked, council should  answer it now and get rid of it.  The matter should not be dragged on. AM. Goddard also  thought it should be answered  now. The mayor thought a lot  of questions had already been  answered but others await an  economics study.  Mayor Wally Peterson said  half of the names on the letter  "we never cons-idered taking in  anyway." Later he described  Pratt road as "an area we are  going to take in anyway."  Present at the meeting with  the mayor were Aid. Goddard,  Crosby and Mandelkau with Aid.  Gerry Dixon absent.  The oil transportation prob-,  lem to Cherry Point in Washington state came before council  through a letter from New Westminster's council asking for an  aldermanic study on the issue.  Mayor Peterson said he found it  pretty hard to make judgment  on the proposal. He suggested  that water transportation of oil  should go back to the smaller  size tankers to reduce accidental spillage dangers. Council decided to file the matter for the  time being.  hall,   eyes rolling and praying  audibly.  , Strangely there was no panic  among the dazed .and; shocked,  guests that .throriged Jthe hall  and later in the lobby below.  Recovering the.key to my door,  I had to pick my way through  the rubble back to my room,  dress, then hurriied down in the  elevator,, manned byAa calm and  unperturbed female operator,  who had stayed at her post right  through the quake, which' fortunately had not disrupted this  service.  We ventured out into the-glass  and rubble strewn streets __t the  Clifton Cafeteria, on Broadway,  one of the few places still open  for business, we had breakfast,  and were no sooner seated than  a severe follow-iup shock occurred. Everyone stayed frozen in  their place, again the stoicism  of an earthquake inured people.  The epi-centre of the earthquake was 40 miles north of L.A.  in the San Fernando Valley  where many died. We humbly  gave thanks it was no nearer.  The last tremor we felt was at  the beautiful new bus depot,  three blocks from the hotel, a  grim farewell gesture from the  City of Angels. We lost no time  in boarding our homeward bound  bus for Canada, thankful to have  come through it, though a bit  shaken, alive and in one piece.  As we rumbled through the  night, detouring around: zoned off  areas of toppled expressways,  twisted rails, shattered buildings  and a city's grief and anguish,  we were prayerfully thankful to  be going home to Gibsons and  the peace and quiet of Timber-  log Cabin.  Tie broken  School trustees elected Mrs.  Agnes Labonte to be school  board vice-chairman following a  vote containing three nominees/  Mrs. Labonte, W. Malcolm and  B. Mulligan.  At'a previous meeting the situation reached a tie between  Mrs. Labonte and Mr. Mulligan  arid as a result the election was  postponed until all members of  the board were present.  V During Scout-Guide week, a  very important day occurs for  all Girl Guides, Brownies, Boy  Scouts and Cubs. This day is  Feb. 22. Thinking Day, set aside  in honor of the founder of Scout-  irig and Guiding, Lord Baden-  Powell, and the World Chief  Guide, Lady Baden-Powell.  w To exemplify the idea of Partners in Action, on Sunday, Feb.'  211 Guides, Scouts, Brownies and  Cubs will march together from  Gibsons wharf to the United  Church where a joint ceremony  Willi take place at 2 p.m., in the  .Christian Education hall. At this  time, Thinking Day Pennies axe  given by the girls to the World  Thinking Day Fund. These pennies are collected and distributed internationally when and  where a need arises. Parents,  frfends and neighbors are partners too and they are all invited to attend this Scout-Guide  service.  Some of the younger partners,  Rofina Hastings, Mary-Kay Gant  Maureen Forsyth and Patti Star  of 1st Gibsons Brownie Pack  were awarded their Golden Hand  on -Feb. 9 and were surprised  with a large cake, ending with  a sticky thank you to Mr. Eric  White ,who expertly did the appropriate decorating. At the  same time, mothers proudly  watched Golden Bars being presented to Kerri Barnes, Esther  Mi-baud, Laurie Stromquist,  Colleen Bennett, and Shirley  Spence. Congratulations go to  these hard-working Brownies.  CANCELLATION! ! !  At a recent meeting of Gibsons Group commiittee of Boy  Scouts, members discussed the  possibility of having to cancel  the activities of Gibsons Cubs A  pack which meets Tuesday evenings. The cubmaster and1 assistant cubmaster are unable to  continue, leaving the Pack without a leader.  MINISTERIAL OFFICERS  At the January meeting of the  Sunshine -Coast Ministerial association officers elected for 1971  are Rev. Alex R. Simpson, Our  Lady of Lourdes church, Seohelt, chairman and Bob Aliaby,  pastor of Gibsons and Sechelt  Baptist churches, secretary.  "speed" Linda took, until her  friend, Shelley, finally realizes  the seriousness of Linda's condition and admits she knows  where Linda got it ��� arid names  Bernie.  Picked up by the police, Bernie deferids himself by explaining he was only doing a favor  for a few friends. At first defiant, Bernie declares, "If they  hadn't bought from me, they'd  have found somebody else."  Dramatic flash-backs reveal  the reality of Bernie's* favors:  Linda in hospital, her mother  ft-antac with anxiety; Mark's desolation; Susan, Bernie's own girl  friend, being introduced to heroin by Bernie's dealer, Al.  " Bernie's defiance turns to despair as he is made to realize the  extent of the damage that has  been done as a result of his supplying marijuana to a few  friends. With hirii, we see that  this was only the beginning ���  and realize that nobody can be  sure what will be the end.  School plans  for Centennial  A report on school -eentennial  plans prepared for, the school  board by Trustee William Nimmo brought the remark from  Supt. R.R. Hanna that what is  needed most is leadership and  enthusiasm.  -��� Theiprbgraum came b-efbi'ei the.  ;vb<ja^ ^xhade  covering a meeting: at trustee,  teacher and pupil level. Trustee  John Hayes said it was expected  work on the projects would get  underway during the month.  Students in district schools are  showing they can get involved  by undertaking certain projects  in this our Centennial year, the  report prepared by Trustee William, Nimmo stated.  At Pender Harbour, students  have already planted 100 trees  and probably will undertake  other projects.  The Elphinstone students plan  a mid-March Homecoming with  a Centennial theme and a Centennial dance about the end of  April.  It is the intention of the Gibsons Elementary students to  build an Adventure Playground.  A pioneer cabin is another project to be started. It will be  quite an endeavor and it is hoped that all schools, as well as  outside people will pitch in on  this project. Any persons wishing to assist are asked to phone  886-2289 or 886-7719 leaving their  name and phone number and indicating the type of assistance  they can give. This information  will then be forwarded to the  appropriate committee.  Contrary to some belief, students can and do help themselves. Grade 5 students in Gibsons have raised money to go to  Victoria for three days to view  the legislature and take some  side trips to see other places  of interest. It is understood that  some students will be interviewed to the Channel 6 Noon Show.  The students will lunch with the  Hon. Isabel Dawson.  Skookumchuk  park reality  From the legislature Wednesday morning Hon. Isabel Dawson informed the Coast News  that the minister of recreation  and conservation announced the  opening up of Skookumchuk Rapids park near Egmont.  It will include camp tables,  rest room facilities, parking for  25 or more cars, required trails  and a road from Egmont to the  park.  Pt. Mellon  union raid  under way  A raid by the Pulp and Paper  Workers of Canada union on Local 297 of the International pulp  workers union at Port Mellon is  underway.  President Fred H. Corley of  Local 297 upon hearing that the  PPWC had moved into Gibsons  with a crew of outside organizers and were proceeding to raid  the local union issued the following statement:  "On Jan. 21 I called a special  executive meeting to discuss the  raid. At this meeting the full  executive board of our local union took the position that they  would continue to work for and  support our local union and our  international union. We also issued the following statement, at  our last general meeting, as being the official policy of the elected representatives of our local union: _  " 'Although every one of our  members have sworn to uphold  the constitution of our international union and the by-laws,of  our local union, if any of these  members are interested in joining the PPWC, and they go  about it in a quiet and businesslike manner, they have nothing  to fear from this1 executive. If,  however, there are any attempts  to disrupt our general meetings,  of impugn the motives1 of our  union officers or in any way  harass our officers- and. shop  stewards__irii Tcai^rigMbut ��� their\  '-'��� dunes,rtherifit i_^ouriirrteritU^.b:  exercise the full; protection provided for in our constitution arid  bylaws.' ���������..-;.',���  "Since that time the outside  organizers, when asked who  their local executive is comprised of, have been leading people  to believe that, if they take over,  the. present executive will just  change the shingle on the door,  and it will be business as usual.  Or they have stated that they do  not wish to reveal this information for fear of reprisals.  "Our policy, as stated, takes-  care of the latter. The following-  statement is our answer to the  former:  " 'In order to dispel any illusions created by PPWC organizers, and to make our position  clear to all members of Local  297, IBPS&PMW, we, the undersigned members of the executive  board of Local 297, do hereby  state that we do not intend to  support or hold office in the  PPWC or any rival organization.  Nor would it be our intention to  turn over any of the assets of  Local 297 to the PPWC or any rival organization. We believe that  in view of the position taken at  our last executive and general  meetings, people who are asked  to join a rival organization are  entitled to know who their proposed executive are.' "  This was signed by Fred Corley, president of the union and  the 15 other officers on the union executive.

MOTHERS' MARCH  Gibsons and District Kinsmen  collected over $600 on their annual Mothers* March this year.  Dennis Oliver, chairman of the  march, thanks all Marching  Mothers for their help. He said  the response this year was much  better than the past few years.  Over the whole province, Marching Mothers collected naerly  $300,000 to enable the Kinsmen  Rehabilitation Foundation to carry on its work.  Rnnnunumi Coast News, Feb. 17, 1971.

Those menacing drugs  Elphinstone Student cabinet in action at a public meeting during late January stressed the need for a semi-permanent drug centre for the community to give assistance to those experiencing  problems with drugs. At that meeting the students were advised  there was a movement outside educational circles looking into the  situation. *...-.;  There is apparently help available for the student cabinet with  the coming to Gibsons Friday, Feb. 26 under sponsorship Of Gibsons United Church Women, of members of the Vancouver Alcohol  and Drug Research council. This council is bringing with it for  ���screening in the United Church hall �� film, The High, which deal��  with the drug problem. The announcement made in the United  Church Sunday says that adults and families are invited and that  discussions afterwards will be an important part of the event.  It seems odd that with all the wonderful attributes stressed for  education that an area like Gibsons or any other area of siwiiiLar  size in this decade of the 1970s should have a drug problem among  its youth. However the problem is there and has been under surveillance of the RCMP for many months. Every now and again  someone appears in court under a narcotics charge and is given a  sentence. Yet trade continues between pusher and taker.  Whether it be marijuana or something more serious, getting"at  the core of the problem is most difficult. Perhaps the visit of the  Alcohol and Drug Research and Education Council to Gibsons may  have the effect of bringing into the open the seriousnessof this  menace and alert the populace to the dangers that are-involved.  Your attendance at this event in the United Churchyhall could  eventually be of some use to the community at large.  Hydrants  ?  necessary:  Firemen like to have good equipment to get to and fight faires,  and also to have a supply of water available. The recent meeting  of fire fighting officials with members Of the Insurance Adjusters  association was a step in that direction.  The visit helped firemen of Gibsons assess their situation as  fire fighters in connection with the means they have of fighting  fires. As a result along with an aec-ompanying alderman, the  firemen looked over Gibsons area hydrant system and made suggestions for improvement in the means, to combat fires by proposing places where hydrants would be Of most use.  Firemen have the best of equipment to get to fires but it seems  out of line to have nothing to help them when they reach the  scene of a blaze. Gibsons council intends to rectify this situation  by adding one or two to the system each year.  The Regional District board sees the value of expert advice in  the fire fighting field and expects to have the Insurance Adjusters  Association send up an official to look over the situation. The Regional Board is interested in fire departments because it is its  job to arrange financing of fire fighting equipment where required.  With fire fighting forces now at Pender Harbour, Sechelt, Roberts Creek, Gibsons and Port Mellon, development of the Sunshine  Coast at its present rate will create greater problems for firemen  so wisdom is being shown by the Officials concerned. A good fSre  fighting force keeps insurance rates down and can, if given the  chance, save lives and cut damage losses.  COAST NEWS  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  Federal government public  works estimates contain $215,000  for a boat harbor in the Selma  Park area.  Frank Daugherty was appointed manager of Gibsons Bank of  Montreal.  A   six hour  meeting   starting  with a pot luck supper, followed by election of officers and  then entertainment was held by  Wilson Creek Community Association which decided to enlarge  its hall.  10 YEARS AGO  Storm gusts which hit 90 mph  overturned a fishboat between  Gibsons and Keats Island. Power breakages occurred at numerous points along the Sunshine Coast.  A bank which gave way ruined the newly built Henry Jure  home in Gower Point area. The  loss was estimated at $8,000.  Government officials insist in  ppite of opposition that Langdale school must be built.  15 YEARS AGO  Tony Gargrave MLA, requested from Black Ball Ferries that  the fares be reduced.  The Len Coates home on  Payne Road, Gibsons area, was  destroyed by fire. Two of \five  children in the house at the time  escaped.  The deplorably muddy condition of the gravelled part of the  highway towards Powell River  drew considerable condemnation  from the public.  20 YEARS AGO  Canadian Forest Products announces its purchase of the Port  Mellon mill and townsite. Ten  million dollars will ibe spent on  bringing it to a profitable production level.  Road engineers are looking  over the opening up of a road  through to Port Mellon.  A board of trade public meeting will be held in Sechelt's Legion hall to hear Capt. A. Pea-  body outline his plans for a car  ferry from Horseshoe Bay to  -Gibsons.  (By RETIRED CHAIRMAN  CLIFF  GILKER)  Thanking members of the Regional District board for its support given him as chairman last  year, Clilf Gilker, retiring chairman in a report on the year's  work said a great deal of time  was put into the business of the  Regional District board by all  members. , %  ���  During the year the board  completed the first stage of 'the  area metropolitan water system.  From a supply system to West  Seohelt, a supply and distribution complex irom Sechelt to  Rosamund Road, Gower Point  and Gibsons Rural was completed. This would have been extended further had' not certain  factors placed impediments in  our way.  Two proven wells have been  drilled. Thus with a proven flow  metered on Chapman Creek the  board has a proven supply of  potable water sufficient to supply any and all extensions and  needs of the area for the forsee-  able future. May 1 make two  suggestions to the board:  That the engineers' consistent  and often reiterated recommendation that the board at the ear-,,  liest possible time assume the  function of a water supply sysi-  tenn throughout the Region,  should be implemented as quickly as possible.  Priority should be given to enacting legislation to protect all  water areas and source from7  pollution, encroachment and  alienation of these from the public needs and interests.  A start has been made in part  by the enactment of zoning bylaws.   It  is  imperative that   a  comprehensive plan be develop*.....  -ed: land use, reserves for pub  lie use and in particular future .  needs for such areas as devel- :  opment areas,   industrial' complexes, etc.  Land leasing and land sales of  Crown lands are becoming a  heavy responsibility of the board  The Land Act:of our senior govr  ernment is out of date and the  board in association with other  boards should ask for a seminar  with Lands and Forests to ieeS*^  revisiions to meet the present  trends of free public land for the  asking. There are two surveys  on file with our senior government: the B.C. Land Use and  the federal "Canada Land Resources." The board has requested copies of both of these but  none has as yet been received.  On the statement of the direc-f,  tor of pollution control to this  board that we in B.C. have the  best pollution control law in  Canada, to date this has been  only a white paper enactment.  Except in the application of certain restrictions on "garbage  dumps, land fills and low priori.,  ty pollution factors,, the environments, water, air and land are  still to a large degree on paper  only.  In the interval, (pollution factors are proliferating. The experts are concerned with recruitment, organizational procedures,  policy pronouncements, and jurisdiction, making no decision nor  accepting any responsibility to  curb or control new and existing  sources of pollution.  There are individuals, associ-  ations and other bodies who in  the present times of dissent with  elected authorities, take unto  themselves powers best described as of a quasi-government.  The type of action, either by appeal to other government offices by delegations or pressure  groups is devoted to specific projects only, and in many cases is  represented by a definite minority purporting to speak on behalf  of the majority of citizens.  This is done before approach- -  ing their elected representative  on the Regional board, all of  whom are elected by a democratic vote of the majority. If not  corrected it will in time lead to  a breakup of democracy, the  right of citizens to elect those  they deem capable to represent  them.  undertaken by the Island municipalities appear to indicate that  a data centre for all districts  and municipalities is still a long  way off-  '���'Now that we have completed  the most difficult part of the.  records, the compiling of the  water roll, it would seem practicable to remain on a manual  system until such time as other  factors are introduced which ~  would make a change over worth ,  while. In this connection, it  should be noted that we have,  been unsuccessful in obtaining  information from Land Registry  on changes of ownership and it  is probably simpler to cope with  this problem on a manual system with all records held in this  office than with the data system.  The last of an otter  All winter I have been entertained by the antics Of a seemingly lonesome sea-otter whom I  have been told had given so  much delight to summer visitors and the winter ones who  park their cars in the little park  by Chaster bridge, and walk  along the bay from Byng Camp  south to Gower Point.  Only a week ago, the little fellow followed me- back from  Camp Byng to the open space  near the end of Gower Point  Road, and a few days later  brought.a flounder to a log on  the beach, permitting my daughter and husband, visiting from  Manitoba, to approach within 30  feet to take photos., and again  wheri the tide advanced, the little fellow put on a very playful  display on a rock, just a short  distance from the water's edge  Yesterday while walking, I  met a friend who stood with me  to witness another playful antic  on a rock a short distance from  the shore. All winter I seldom  missed picking the animal up  with my binoculars somewhere  in the shallow bay, and often  listened to neighbors telling of  seeing the little fellow consuming a fish on a mooring float.  Not   many   hours   after   the  neighbor and I were watching  the otter, I met another friend,  so we strolled down the road a  piece to see if it Was still on  the rock, when we met another  young neighbor who was dying  to tell somebody about the tragedy   he   had   just   witnessed.  Three hungry killer whales had  entered the bay, likely searching   for  food,   when   they  had  either smelled or caught sight of  our little friend.- The otter put?  up a terrific battle, and even escaped onto the shore, but knowing the perils of the shoreline',  decided he had better take his  chances in his native element.  Soon he was in a boiling melee  of water, as the hungry tigers .  of the sea closed around him,  and the last sight of my little  friend was as he was cast into  the air by a thrashing tail fluke.  Away went the whales down past  Gower Point, so unless the gallant little fellow can emulate  Jonah, we have seen the last of  him.  This brings this week's toll to  seeing one gull with a broken  leg, one sick scoter on the beach  (later consumed by a bald headed eagle) and one gull caught in  a gang of fish hooks, four hooks  in the one foot, one in elbow,  one in breast, with the fine gut  line wrapped around the primary feathers of a wing, fastened to one toe of the wounded  leg. My daughter and I had to  push all hooks through the flesh  and pull the eyes through the  flesh, as we only had our bare  hands. I hope he recovers.  Seems as though violence has  entered our peaceful bay, for as  in other years about this time  of year, I notice some black  wing-tipped herring gulls, and  they are tormenting the diving  surf scoters, golden eyes, and  other diving ducks, by waiting  till they bring a fish above the  surface. These ducks dive on  them and steal the fish. All  through the early winter, the  glaucious wing gulls seem to  live in harmony with the ducks.

Integration committee  control debate subject  Control of the school district's  integration program covering Indian pupils, became a matter of  serious discussion at Thursdiay  night's meeting last week of the  school board.  At the beginning integration  coimmittee members were appointed by the school board, and  the chairman' was elected by  them.  It appeared to speakers at  Thursday night's school board  meeting that the integration  comimittee, organized by the  school (board as part of its educational cornmlittee operation,  was coming under pressure from  President John Burnside of the  Seohelt Teachers Association,  who maintained that members of  the integration committee were  equal, therefore he could be  elected to be chairman. Eventually the school board upheld the  committee''-; selection of Mrs."  Labonte as chairman.  The integration movement  started in 1966 when the late  Supt. G. E. Johnson recommended a special meeting to discuss  integration with Indian Affairs  officials, Reserve administrators  and school 6-f-eia.s. It was about  that time Indian kindergarten  classes were arranged at Sechelt  school and with their advancing  into grade one a problem was  set up.  During that summer Trustee  Leo Johnson, chairman of the  board's integration committee  was authorized to set up a seven  or eight member sub^-ommittee  "to deal with routine problems  dealing with integration. This  comimittee followed the lines of  the one suggested by the late  Supt. Johnson.  The first meeting of this subcommittee occurred Oct. 3 when  it was decided the group would  endeavor to- avoid problems of  integration before they occur.  This committee had various  meetings over the months that  followed, then an expansion occurred which, resulted in a wider  project with the B.C. Teachers  Federation involved. Dr. L. Mor-  in of the. federation circulated a  report--..on, a ��echelt Indian Integration project which the trustees, received.  Just'about that time Trustee  Agnes Labonte attended a Fraser Valley-Metro seminar on Indian Integration May 23 and 24  and placed before the board a  lengthy report on what transpired there.  Supt. R. R. Hanna then called  a meeting to discuss the continuation of the Indian integration  problem.  At the June 25, 1970, school  board meeting. Trustee Mrs. Labonte. reported a meeting with  representatives of the Indian department and the Sechelt Indian  band. She advised that the B.C.  Teachers Federation- had indicated it was withdrawing from  active particiipalfion.  Trustee Labonte then offered  some recommendations which included a smaller committee and  that she would continue as a  member of the committee but  felt that another trustee should  be appointed to provide continuity.  At the same time the Indian  Affairs department agreed that  it would underwrite two remedial teachers and four teacher  aides, a half-time counsellor and  pay for transportation of Indian  children from Halfmoon Bay  area. This arrangement continues.  During last December's school  board meeting, to settle the argument about who is to chair  meetings of the integration committee ct was decided that Mrs.  Labonte remain as the one and  only chairman of this committee and that guests would continue to be without voting rights.  At the February 11 meeting  of the board Mrs. Labonte, in  presenting her report on the integration committee's operations  also offered her resignation as  chaiirman. The board declined to  'X. accept, ^asking, her. to. continue  as chairman.  Supt. Hanna said he had asked  Mr. Theodore Joe for a report  on the number of Indian children living on and off the reserve, which schools they were  attending and if not in this district, the reason why. He wanted this report for the next board  ; meeting.  It was hoped that Band members would bring more items in  for discussion at integration  meetings. Mrs. Labonte suggested the committee was changing  its role to that of a discussion  group or an advisory comimittee.

The  claims he made are not new,  we hla/ve heard that tale before,  almost word for word, in other  places, even including the rather  irrelevant red herring of pulp-  mili pollution. Such tales become  not a bit more factual, even  when they are repeated over and  over again. However I did expect a gentleiman of your correspondent's years to have realized by now that any argument  has at least two sides. It had  added stature to his statements  had he fully investigated the  whole story before rushing into  print with accusations arid invectives. Your correspondent says  that he is a recent arrival on the  Sunshine Crtaist, so even at the  danger of boring the rest of us  to death, some facts should be  pointed out to him as shortly as  possible, leaving it to him to do  a more detailed study, if he is  really as interested iri the facts  as he pretends to be.  Firstly let me tell your correspondent that there are only  very few people left who seriously believe that some advantage  could be gained by playing the  'inside' people off against the  people 'outside.' Most of lis have  now come to the firm belief that  the insiders br outsiders can  only prosper, if the others do  likewise. We all are in the same  boat and either swSm together  or drown together.  Secondly, there was never any  argument put up by the 'outsiders' against a sewage system for  the village, but some considerable disagreement about tire location of the outfall and the absence of sufficient sewage treatment, it goes very far indeed to  call people's protests and the  exercise of their legal and democratic rights a 'harassment',  when your corresponderit happens to disagree with the objections. Or does your correspondent think that any objections  agalinst the wisdom Of the authorities and their plans: should be  labelled 'harassments*' of that  authority under all circiirit-  sta_ices?  Thirdly installation of the sewer lines were at all times under  the sole control of the authorities. To blame the delay of the  installation on what your correspondent chooses to call outside  'Art Carneys' is no excuse for  the lack of action. One could  only wish the authorities and  their engineers had showri some  of the true 'Art C-irriey' spirit  and done their hbinework properly, when they ritade thei!.* liirst  application. After all that aippii-  cation had to be thrown out by  a notoriously pe__ttissive Pollution Permit Branch because of  lacking sewage treatment, whMi  as everybody including the authorities and their engineers know,  is essential iri this day arid age.  The other delay of incorporating  Gospel Rock into the village  over the objection of the property owner concerhed, so as to  have also full control over the  source of pollution, cannot be  construed, even' by stretching  the .imagination to the extremes,  'harassment' by those bad outsiders and cohtinbtftdng to* the  alleged 20% increase in costs!"  Objections against the second  permit application was based  on the f_tat that rio details were  made known about the allegedly  'secondary' treatment plant with  not many more details or specifications even known at this  time. But it was obvious right  from the start from any contact  with the Pollution Permit  Branch that they and the Pollution Board were determined to  issue a permit, whatever anybody might have to. say. This  somewhat peculiar state of affairs was well known to the  authorities, the objectors and ev-  Blake C. Alderson,  D.C.  CHIROPRACTOR  Post Office Building, Sechelt  TUES.. WED., THURS., FRI.  10:30 - 5:30  SATURDAY 9:30 - 1:90  Phone  Office 885-2333���Res. 886>2321  erybody else.  In the whole chain of events  there was nothing which would  have prevented the laying of  pipe lines years ago and have  things ready when the permit  came. It is easy to blame the  bad outsiders for alleged delays  and cost increases, whilst sitting  on one's hands doing nothing,  but it is riot a very good alibi.  Evert siftce the permit came tp  hand months ago not much was  seen or heaird about a start with  the installation, but a continuous complaining albout delays at  the expense of the bad 'outsiders' and some 'victory celebrations' for council, the press and  their wives, the latter, however,  not at the exiberise of the wicked  ones -��� or does yotir correspbri-  dent think this should also be a  charge against them?  Your correspondent's other tirade, also often heard before in  other places in practically. the  same vein,   that people in the  outlying areas do not contribute  to the village's sewer efforts, is  one of those half-truths which  do   not   stand   closer   sdrutiny.  May I ask, who contributes to  the municipal 'per capita' grants  and the provincial sewage subsidy?   Both subsidies   certainly  do not come from the pocket of  the 'harassed' correspbrident but  from  the pockets  of all those  wicked people living outside of  municipalities. Not that we lament, such contributions to the  municipalities but at least some  recognition  should be given  to  this by your cbrresporiderit, before uttering his 'crude but suc-  cint sayings.' Se-eri ir. that light,  all cruderiess is left, of course,  but it is not longer so succinct.!  Lastly, let me emphasize that  not  ali wicked people  can  be  found only in the outlying areas.  But there is a goodly number of  people living in the village itself,  who are equally concerned with  the preservation of a quality en-  v&ronment, clean beaches, unimpaired fishing off Salmon  Rock (we outsiders are not the  ones who call it 'the home of the  famous Salmon Rock) and generally an unspoiled Sunshine  Coast.  ���FRANK WEST.

A person who apprehends a  child because he falls within one  of the above classes must bring  the child before a judge within  seven days of the apprehension  and a hearing date must be set.

Rossland  Hon. D. L. Brothers, minister  of education, announces the technical and vocational training division of the Department of Eld-  cation, in co-operation with the  Federal Manpower department  arid the Mining Association of  British Columbia, are considering a school for miners.  A site near Rossland has been  recommended, and it is expected the first class of 40 student  miners will be enrolled and operations commenced on April 1,  with a four months course, if  financial arrangements can be  completed by then. The Mining  Association of British Columbia  has offered complete co-operation, including the donation of  equipment. Mr. Brothers also expressed his appreciation for the  work of the Kootenay Industrial  Development Association which  has lent support to this project.  6EI YOUR MAP  of the  SUNSHINE COAST  63^ each  at the  COAST NEWS  GIBSONS  WANTED  Used furniture or what  have yon  WE BUY BEER     "  BOTTLES  AL'S USED FURNITURE  Gibsons ��� 886-28121 Lockstead outlines  NDP pollution stand  BOWLING    February meat    letters fo Editor   Black survey  (By DONALD LOCKSTEAD  New Democratic Party)  In recent years we have become increasingly aware of an  added dimension to the interdependence of man; that is, we  have become aware that we are  dependent not only on society  (other people) but also upon the  whole complex of relationships  that exist between animal and  vegetable, stream and air, water and erosion and so on.  We have insisted for years on  specific measures which are just  now veing started. We have  called for controls on the poisons that are now creating havoc in our land and marine environments. We have called  again and again for an approach  to sewage disposal which is at  least sane. We have pleaded for  natural resource policies that  hold,some hope for future generations.  In recent months these specific measures have gained a great  many advocates, and even a  measure of respectability. The  NDP will continue its fight for  important specifics in this battle  We will seek methods of pollution control that work before,  not after, the damage has been  done. In many instances, this  will take the simple form of halting processes that are known to  threaten the ecology.  We place the highest priority  on restoration and maintenance  of environments that make life  not noly possible, but worthwhile  We will undertake the research  necessary to predict and avoid  the kind of ecological disasters  that lately have occurred.  But, much more important, we  will make explicit the ethic that  is implicit in the call to control  pollution, or to conserve natural  values. We will continue to urge  the adoption of human values  that call upon individuals to live  with their environment, rather  that exploit it. s  We will urge people to recognize their dependence not only  on other people, but on other  things and other processes. We  will urge people to recognize  that interdependence, man's  most human quality, and to rejoice in it.  Meeting the threat of pollution  and conserving natural values  calls for nothing less than such  a new ethic. We must realize  that the current state of our environment is. not an accident,  that it is not to be explained by  ignorance.   .  We have always known that  DDT is a poison; it is not accidental that no research into its  effects was done 20 years ago.  We have always known that  dumping sewage into rivers is a  dangerous thing; it is no mere  coincidence that there are more  oil refineries than sewage treatment facilities.  The current state of our environment is a direct and inevitable result of the ethic that allows and even encourages people to act without regard to the  effect of actions on other people,  let alone on physical environments. The damage that has  been done, and is being done by  this ethic, cannot ultimately be  addressed by regulations prohib  iting the use of this or that chem  ical.  It will be addressed by attitudes and values that extend the  sense of community from what  we have always called for to a  a new and much larger kind of  community, that is all people  and their environment.  Conscious of the. fact that the  basic responsibility and power  to combat pollution lies with the  provincial government, I call for  the following steps to be taken  immediately:  1. Establishment of an Environmental Control Department or  ���Council independent of government or industry. Furnished  with funds, the council would  have the responsibility of mobilizing the best scientific and social knowledge about the state  of our environment, identifying  and planning needed research  and providing government and  the public with information on  environmental problems.  2. Build ,a central planning  agency of government which  will, as one continuing function,  assess long term environmental  effects oif all government programs.  3. Require that all new large  scale industrial developments,  as well as new chemical or other  technological innovations be evaluated for their overall' effects  on the ecology before their introduction.  4. Set up a monitoring system  to measure, analyze and report  changes in environmental conditions and provide early warning of potential problems in air,  water and soil pollution.  5. Establish and strictly en  force firm standards of permissible levels of industrial and domestic emission of pollutants.  6. Engage in an educational  campaign dealing with pollution  and its relation to the profit system.

Jimmy and David Douglas  with Clay Mullen thank the residents of Hopkins; Lamding and  Soames Point for their generosity on Sunday. The boys canvassed for the Variety Club Telethon and raised $18 for that  cause.  Editor: I would just like to  thank you for publishing the letter sent by myself to Mr. Williston (Feb. 3), which our self-appointed censor in Sechelt decided was insolent and not a fit  thing for his readers to see.  Could it be that he does not  know what the word 'insolent'  means?  Strangely enough Mr. Williston did not share the views of  this pompous little man who  writes these ridiculous editorials  to satisfy his own ego. Far from  thinking the letter insolent, Mr.  Williston replied with a hand  written letter which he surely  wouldn't have done" if he had  felt at all insulted by it.  I am quite sure an editor must  be quite free to publish what he  wants in his newspaper but isure-  ly it is not ethical to criticize  both the writer and the contents  of a letter which is not even pub*-  lished for the readers to decide  for themselves on its merits.  And while on the subject of  letters, the people of the Henry  Road and Veterans Road area  are hoping that they do not have  long to wait for their reply from  the Regional District concerning  their questions put to the Village  of Gibsons.  ���J.
