 ��f��^nclal  Library  Victoria_   r     r,     ry'  ���a,   B.  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Phone 886-2622  Volume 24  Number 15, April' 14, 1971  10c per copy  $40,000 Gibsons municipal hall expansion  includes library, museum and court room  R. D.  (BOB)  WHITE  new manager of Elphinstone Coop store in Gibsons, who was  raised in Mission and started in  the meat business at the age of  11 back in 1921. In Vanderhoof  in 1950, he stayed there nine  years then joined Western Groceries in Calgary for three  years and followed that with a  more than five year stint at Bella Bella.  : A three-fold increase in the  Regional District board assessment on Gibsons municipality  'has increased .that assessment  from the 1970 $3,000 plus to $10,-  241, and has caused council to  "dig into the reasons for such ah  increase.  This was revealed at Tuesday  night's council meeting when the  Regional budget was presented  by Clerk Dave Johnston along  with the portion the board has  assessed the municipality.  Glerik Johnston7 showed how  something like $5,000 was assessed for the Regional debt reserve, created mainly by water  expenditures. Debate was held  off until council made a closer  exaanination of the situation.  Comimentingi ori the assess-  ment Mayor Wally Peterson said  the cost was threefold aind! there  were only so manypockets to  dig into, and; when you get too  deep something will happen. He  offered a suggestion that on this  basis perhaps Gibsons sewers  could-possibly be shareable as  i. well. ���'���.������������'  Elphinstone School sports coun  cil' thanked council by letter for  its participation in Homecoming  Day'sports when council and a  school team played in a* game of  basketball. The school council  hoped it would become an annual event. Mayor Peterson  agreed and added that he would  like to have better support next  year. ;So_ne suggestions' arose as  ^io whether they would; all be on  council next year.  A rate df 50c per day was  considered for the use of hydro  power through plug-ins on the  floats. An effort wil be made to  collect from past users of power. Council had already started  it was informed by B.C. Hydro  on lining up power meters when  that it would not supply the meters, maintaining it Would be too  costly in breakages for B.C. Hy-  di*o to consider it. The issue is  not yet settled.  Clerk David Johnston was1 appointed fire officer to issue fire  permits during the approaching  fire season.  MINISTERIAL  CHANGE  Rev. Dennis Morgan of St.  Bartholomew's Anglican church  will change parishes at the end  of the.month*. He will take over  St. Mary?s Anglican church at  50th and Prince Albert streets  in Vancouver. His replacement  wiill be Rev. David Brown from  St. Timothy's church, but he is  not expected until some time in  early June.  A new public library in an expanded Municipal hall with  greater space for the Pioneer  Museum has been announced by  Gibsons municipal council.  7 The announceanent comes  through authorization from Victoria* officials that Gibsons will  come under the Federal-Provin-  ci'al Special Development program! to the amount of $40,000.  As  a  result special meetings  were arranged to pas�� the necessary bylaw and give Gibsora-  ites that chance to have a Municipal. Hall, Library, Museum and  Magistrate's Court under one  roof. The present buaMing will  be widened 10 or more feet and  extended towards the School  Road side so as to doiulble the  present size of the building.  The new building will have the  Municipal Hall on the one side  Sewer costs OK'd  . Gibsons council Tuesday night recomumended acceptance of tenders on the installation of sewers, service  connections and appurtenances to the value of $277,359.  The Valid Construction of Siuirrey tender for instaffla-  tion work totalled $210,390 with Atlas Asbestos company  providing asbestos cement piping costing $46,669 were  accepted. Peach City Foundry will supply cast iron  manhole frames and covers costing $5,496. Ocean Cement will supply precast manholes costing $15,831.  There were six tenders for installation, five for pipe  and appuaitenances, three on manhole frames and covers and two for precast manholes.  High composite tender for installation was $354,105  and the low $256,059. This included installation and pipe  costs but not the manhole equipment.  The tenders as examined by Dayton and Knight,  fessional engineers for the village, were approved by^  council.  Inspector for Gibsons?  A third health inspector is urgently needed to maintain a satisfactory level! of service to the  ,> ipublic and-tfie logical location  for that inspector is - Gibsons,'  said Dr. D. L. Gemmill, director  of Coast Garibaldi Health Unit  in his annual report coveririg  1970.  . Continuing, his report said that  in May, 1970, a time study by  the health inspectors indicated  that an undue amount is time is  spent on new subdivisions and  site inspections for private sewage disposal. For example*, in  1965, two health inspectors in  our unit processed 34 subdivisions and made 62 site inspections. In 1970, two inspectors  processed 272 subdivisions and  made 834 site inspections. The  population and health problems  are increasing. I constantly fear  that our services will deteriorate  unless this shortage of personnel is rectified during 1971.  During 1970, health inspectors  found it almost impossible to  cope with the many demands for  services, especially during the  sumimer months when there was  a peak demand for site inspections'.  We must, thank the Regional  Districts for the co-operation  they extended to us during 1970.  The Building Inspectors assisted  in some septic tank inspections.  ���Arrangements were made to  withhold issuance of building  permits until a sewage disposal  permit was issued, Dr. Gemanill  Driftwood Players  at Powell River  Dritfltwood Players returned  from Powell River after presenting What Shall We Tell Caroline  in the Dwight Hall.  They shared two evenings with  the Powell River Drama Group  who presented Battle of Wits and  Objective Case.  On April 17, What Shall We  Tell Caroline will be presented  in Duncan, in competition in the  Vancouver Island Zone provincial Drama Festival.  That same play will be presented locally in the Gibsons  Elementary school April 23 and  24 along with another one act  play. The Appolo of Bel'ac, and  a skit.  said.  There was often a delay before  some sewage disposal1 permits  were issued. Generally , these,  " permits ���,were;withheld because  of inadequate information being  submitted on the application br  because of difficult situations for  installing an adequate system*.  Because of the workload, inspection�� and meetings were  carried out almost exclusively  by an appointment system.  On private sewage systems,  544 inspections were made, a  13.8<!_ increase over 1969, and a  45.4% increase over 1968.  It is expected that in 1971 we  shall have a further increase.  The amount of time spent on  these systems is- already interfering with other programs.  Powell River installed an eliminator and a new sewage outfall  during 1970. This has protected  the beach areas. Early in 1971,  construction of a secondary sewage treatment plant is planned  for Powell River.  The Village of Gilbsons has obtained a permit from the Pollution Control Branch to install  new treatment facilities. Treated  sewage will be discharged approximately 700 feet out in the  Straits of Georgia, off Gospel  Rock. Beach samples in proximity to the proposed outfall  were all satisfactory.  The water sampling prograan,  excluding bathing beaches, show  ed that considerably more emphasis must be placed on water  quality. The following table  shows; the percentage of unsatisfactory results. The private  supplies were the poorest with  59.5%' being unsatisfactory.  Unsatisfactory sources were:  Municipal  12.5%  Co_r_aiunity  32.7%  Private  59.5%  Other  49.0;%  The  other   category  includes  creeks,   springs,  lakes,  camps  and campsites. Community supplies are those provided by water districts. The municipal supplies are owned and operated by  the municipalities.  It is unfortunate that people  either will not believe or conceive that surface water supplies are always subject to contamination. The number of water systems, both large and  sanall, that distribute untreated  river and lake water is alairm-  ang, and much more education  will be needed to overcome this  practise.

The'old library building will eventually  be demolished unless some use  can be found for it.  7? The application of council to  obtain the $40,000 form the Fed-'  .eral-Provincial Special Development Loan Program would mean  council would not have to go to  the owner-electors* for approval  of the amount.  At a second special meeting on  ���'March 23, a notice of motion was  introduced by Aid. Ken Goddard  and Ken Crosby.  The loan comes under the  Federal - Provincial $35,000,000  fund for municipal puiposes and  miust first have provincial authorization before it can be obtained. This Gibsons council! now  has.  Terms of the loan would cover  twenty years or less at a rate  yet to be* determined but expected to be in the region of six-and-  a-half or seven percent. Council  received first notification of the  loan possibilities from Hon. Dan  Campbell, minister of miu/nicipal  aiffairs, late in December.  Board offers reply  stir  info some action  Twenty-three persons attended  a meeting Saturday at Sechelt  to revive the Sechelt. Ratepayers  association, under the chairmanship of John Hayes-, last chairman of the now dead organization.  - -A committee of volunteers to  get the organization on its feet"  again was chosen including Fred  Johnson, Ken Griffith, Reg.  Mears, W. Harris and Mrs. J.  Clark, se*eVetary and Mrs. M.  Braun, treasurer. Nineteen persons voted for continuation.  * The former organization, started in 1964, faded away in 1967.  As* the new organization has no  funds a $2 membership fee was  -passed.  v   A* meeting   of   Sargent "Bay  Ratepayers held the same evening at Welcome Reach Community Hall, Redroofs, resulted  in the Sargent Bay association  being expanded to cover all1 residents in Area B of the Regional  District which covers the area  ���from; West Sechelt to Wood Bay.  This would make the new organization representative of all  taxpayers in the Regional District Area B.  Director for this  area is Cliff Thorold off West Sechelt.  Four teachers  at convention  Led by Principal M. B. Mactavish of Roberts Creek school,  a delegation of four from this  school district is attending the  B.C. School' Teachers Federation annual convention in Victoria. The others are Frank  Fuller, John Burnside and Allan  Crawford.  (Teachers and other readers  are invited1 to turn to page two  for a synopsis of the legislative  comimittee report on teacher  tenure. This report will be discussed by delegates at the Victoria  convention.)  Another sign  to warn traffic  A third sign warning North  Road traffic from the highway  that North Road is blocked to  ferry traffic has been installed  in vicinity of the Medical clinic  on the highway before traffic  reaches North Road.  There is a second one at the  turn to North Road and a third  on North Road at Reed Road.

The two signs in operation last  sun_mer were of help to police  and motorists and the third sign  in vicinity of the Medical clinic  is added as an extra precaution.  The Regional board at its regular meeting of March 25, considered the reply received from  the Village of Gibsons to their  request for information with  which to answer your enquiries.  As you are* aware, the Gibsons  council acted directly on this  matter and you have received a  copy of an answer sheet signed  by the council.  The Regional board has asked  me to answer, where possible,  the qeustions raised in your letter to Director West.  Before dealing with your questions I think it is important that  the function and position of the  Regional District is understood  by everyone concerned. The Regional' District, though operating under the provisions of the  Municipal Act is not a municipality. This district and others  throughout the province were  formed mainly to take care pfv,~  the urban problems which were*  occurring in unorganized territory and as a base for planning  in those areas. Regional Districts, therefore, are not "fooun*-  dary conscious."  As the growth around municipalities occurs and, the various  service . problems intensify the  natural course of events is for  the municipality to extend its  boundaries and take in its immediate'"outside area" and provide those services as extension  of its already operating organization. There should be no conflict with the Regional District  in this expansion. The point in  time when it is logical for the  extenson to take place is a matter to be determined both by the  miunicipal council following studies by its advisors, and by the  residents of the area to be included. The procedure for the  extension of boundaries is contained in Section 21-29 of the  Municipal Act.  The answers to your questions  aire as follows:  1. What advantages does incorporation in the Village of Gibsons .. offer to residents in Area  E'  :7J7 _7\,r.:..  ^The: answer to this question is  dependent mostly upon what the  individual wants or considers  advantageous to him in the form  of services. If, for example, full  urban type living is desired,  sidewalks, sewers, blacktop,  (Continued on Page 8)  18 mill rate for Sechelt  Based on estimates for 1971  expenditure, Sechelt municipal  council at its April 7 meeting  decided the 18 mill tax rate of  last year will hold for this year.  Mayor William Swain after  hearing chairmen of the various  comimittees outline their needs  said it looked as though the village could get by on the 18 mill  rate. Cleric Ted Rayner estimated this year's assessment would  be on the basis of $1,673,590 and  that 18 mills would produce  about $30,000. Revenues wowld  be about the same as last year,  he expected.  Depamtmental chairmen estimated that roads"'maintenance  would require $6,000, recreation  and cultural service $1,800; road  construction $6,000; Trail Bay  seawall, $5,000, and West Porpoise Bay road $2,000.  A draft agreement between  Osborne Logging Company and  the village with a plan for a waiter system to the Osborne subdivision on D.L. 1509 and 1471  was presented to council with  Aid1. Ted Osborne retiring from  the meeting during discussion.  The mayor and clerk were authorized to sign the agreement  subject to approval by the Regional Water Authority. As this  plan was prepared in conjunction with the Water Authority it  is expected to be approved by  the Regional board.  Aid. Osborne arranged with  council to inspect three proposed projects in West Porpoise  Bay area on Saturday.  Aid. Ben Lang referred to staff  salaries and council decided the  olerk should receive $35 more a  month and Mrs. Boyd, his assistant be raised from $2.10 an hour  to $2.40.  Mayor Swain reported on waiter problems with the Regional  board and said he expected the  $40 rate on the land tax would  remain in effect for some time  owing to expenses involved now  and for the future.  To help settle the Legal Front-  Mallorr* Tree episode concerning health problems and the  premises, council decided to ask  the building inspector to report  on the premises with copies to  the tenant, owner, and public  health inspector. c  Aid. Neteon repprtied the/public works department hatF improved the dip in Highway 101  at the intersection at Standard  Motors and that Coast Paving  company had estimated the cost  of paving the inside strip of dirt  area from the Bool Hall to Standard Motors would cost $1,820.

A cold hunt  In spite of cold rainy weather  the Easter Egg hunt sponsored  by Gibsons and District Chamber of Commerce on the Sunshine Coast Trailer C om r t  grounds Saturday morning drew  about 200 youngsters.  There were 1600 eggs in the  hunt and the large part of them  were discovered in 15 minutes  in a cold, continuous "rain. Special arrangements were made so  that the younger element of the  youthful throng would find some  eggs in their own sector of the  grounds.  Dick Blakeman, past president  of the chamber, reports the event was a success. The only non-  co-operator was the weatherman  Fatal accident  Norman Orville Price of North  Vancouver was killed on April  13 at McNab Creek, north of  Port Mellon. He had been attempting to fall a snag. The tree  which he had just cut off came  back and struck him in the hip.  He was 59 years of age. An inquiry will be held.  FOUND DEAD  William Kazafcoff, 59, was  found dead im his home in Gibsons Cozy Corner area Wednesday night of last week. He shot  himself with a .303 rifle, RCMP  report. He was discovered by his  wife.

The understatement of the year appears in the new Department of National Revenue Federal Sales Tax News issue nuoniber  one. It read's: Manufacturers and wholesalers frequently mention  to us that they do not receive enough information on federal sales  and excise taxes.  Over the years the Coast News has dealt in excise tax problems, the help it has received from the tax administrators was to  read the act, it's all there.  Reading the Excise Tax Act is simple but understanding it is  a long, long way from being simple. No matter how you read it,  it comes out the saime way ��� unintelligible to the layman.  The first issue of the News states a new tax manual will be  issued. Let us hope it will Offer clarity in place of official jargon,  understood only by those administering it.  A rather droll fellow  There is a wag in Sechelt. He is enthralled by the importance  of Sechelt in the scheme of things.  Some years ago he was involved in striving to make Sechelt  a town of 2,400 people, stretching from West Sechelt to Selma Park.  This was seized1 upon by a publication in Sechelt which broadcast  to advertisers in the east that Sechelt's papulation was 2,400. However this fiction did not last very long.  Now he has come up with the idea that while Sechelt's population is 600 it has a trading area of 14,000 persons.  The Sunshine Coast population from Jervis Inlet to Port Mellon could conceivably hit the 10,000 mark ��� but not 14,000. The  14,000 population information appears in the 1971 issue of the British Columbia Tourist Directory. It was not a misprint because evidence of the figure was freely supplied by the directory officials*.  It was a nice try. However exaggeration usually loads to com-  pllicatiqns. Gibsons gets along nicely by producing correct figures  much closer to reality.  A Sam Slick wisecrack says facts are stranger than fiction.  To some minds this is so!  Gems of wisdom  Many peple think Sunday is a sponge to wipe out al the sins  of the week. ��� Henry Ward Beecher.  The provincial legislativex select standing coaramittee on social  welfare and education was authorized in early February to examine the provisions and practices relating to the security of  tenure for teachers in public  schools of British Columbia and  to report its findings.  The report contained a considerable amoluTtt of derailed  legislative procedure but the  following excerpts from it cover the intent of the committee:  Your Committee accepts that  the function of tenure provisions  is to indicate those conditions  under which a teacher may ibe  assured of continuing employment by a school district, and  that it is desirable that there be  such provisions. At the same  time, your comimittee is. of the  opinion that it is essential that  these provisions apply only to  those teachers who have proven  themselves capable oif performing their duties; satisfactorily,  and who continue to perform  them at that level.  #  *  Your committee is also convinced that there must be some  form of review provided in cases  of dismissal, but that the particular form of review must be  such that it will be concerned  more with the substance of the  issues involved in the termination of employment than; with  the details of the manner in  which the employment was terminated.  It was agreed by the comimittee that a teacher should be notified immediately whenever performance of his duties was evaluated as unsatisfactory; that he  should be notified of the improvements considered necessary; and that, if after a reasonable period of time, he did not  effect these improvements, he  should be subject to dismissal  on the grounds of inefficiency.  (Section 129 of the Public  Schools Act sets forth'7';;':]Hi!e-  grounds for dismissal as for  cause, for inefficiency or misconduct, and for gross misconduct. The committee is of the  opinion that the terms cause,  misconduct and gross misc^iif  duct should hot be defined ^in-  any .specific way, since* they  must, of necessity, provide for  a wide variety of -situations.  However, the camimittee feels  that inefficiency can be, at least  partially, defined in terms ������ of  repeated reports assessing the  work of a teacher as pnsatisfac-  tory. It is also of the opinion  that the term gross misconduct  is sufficiently clear that dismissal on this ground should be subject to different procedures both  belfore and after the dismissal.  tion 134 of the Public Schools  Act. Recommendations which  will make provisions concerning  transfer more flexible are made  in the same amendments.  Submissions by both the British. Columbia School Trustees'  Association and British Columbia Teachers' Federation questioned the value of the present  Investigation Committee procedure established in . section 134  of the Public Schools Act. The  committee gained the impression'  that - this device, regardless of  its original intent, had become  formal and rigid in application  and of little value in resolving  tenure disputes. The committee  feels that, if such is the case,  this procedure may well serve  to increase, rather than diminish  the tensions that may surround  a proposed' dismissal, arid becomes merely a preliiminairy  hearing preceding a board of  reference.  The committee is convinced  that some less formal procedure  must be introduced, and concurs  with the British Columbia Teachers' Federation that the proper  time for such a, development is  before an actual dismissal has  taken place. The committee is  also of the opinion that the appeal procedures themselves must  be revised, and that appeals  must be considered by a continuing body which will be able to  develop suitable educational criteria.  that as the representatives of  the British Columbia Parent-  Teachers Federation so succinctly stated, "Good personnel practices cannot be legislated." However, the importance of them  cannot be overstated. The committee draws to the attention of  the school boards of British^Columbia, and to the Department  of Education, its concerns in  connection with the following:  Selection of staff, evaluation  during probation, notification of  concern re quality of work, and  role of the principal; and recommends that these matters be reviewed to ensure that sound policies and practices are established.  The committee believes that  there is- ground for concern  about the extent to which information about a teacher's per-  foi-_i_ance is made available to  prospective employers and, even  within the same district, to the  principal of a school to which a  teacher may be transferred, or  transfer.  The comimittee also was concerned at receiving little indication that irifoTimation concerning the performance of recent  graduates of the (universities is  made available to those institutions so that they may improve  their preparation of teachers,  and reconumendls that the de*-  partment oif education, the British Columbia School Trustees  Association, and the British Columbia Teachers' Federation develop procedures to ensure that  such information is communicated. > ^  , Finally, the comimittee recommends that the minister of education be requested to- furnish  to the select standing comimittee on social welfare, and education, a survey of the operations  of the recommendations Of the  comimittee.  *++**^^*^i^^*^0*^+^^+*^m^0+^^0*0+^0*0m0*0+^^^+^0^^^^^^^^+0^^^i^^^l^*0^*0^^*0m*^F*0^^*0t^^+0^^*  N.

Since the committee is of the opinion that the  principal of a school will often  be the first supervisor to become  aware of unsatisfactory performance by a teacher, he  should not only have such auth-"  ority, but Should also be required to make evaluations.

Hon. W. K. Kiernan, Minister     R B. Worley, Deputy Minister The Labor scene  The provincial government is  failing to live up to its obligation to be a good employer, the  B.C. Government Employees'  Union has charged.  John Fryer, BCGEU general  secretary, said wage increases  announced by the government  Monday fall considerably short  of parity with those in industry  and other public services in the  province.  "As the largest employer in  B.C., the government is obligated to maintain pay scales broadly comparable to wages paid1 by  other good empilloyers in B.C.,"  Fryer said. The new wage rates  give provincial employees increases averaging 6*_. percent,  effective April _.."���'..  Fryer said -that collective  agreements signed in B.C. last  year by unions representing  workers in industry and in the  federal and municipal govern-  /ments resulted in pay boosts averaging more than nine percent.

Brothers,  minister of education, said that  in the opinion of the department  of education and its advisory  comimittees on curricula the integrated approach is more successful than the direct approach  in maintaining the interest and  concern of pupil's in the solution  of environmental problems.  As an example of this treat-'  ment of the subject Mr. Brothers  said' that at the ���elementary level unitfe of outdoor education, in-  .   eluding^ field trips, have been included in the hew science program presently being implement  ed and in the new physical education program  which will be  introduced in September,  1971.  In the junior secondary schools i  Unit 3 of Science 9, Energy Relationships,   stresses   the interaction of various organisms with  their environment. An alternate  unit  on  environmental science  is being planned.  At the senior-secondary school  level the second part of the Geography 12 course, introduced  last September, deals with Man  and His Environment, and includes work oh the use, conservation, control and quality of  the environment.  The geography section of Social Studies 11 allows students  to examine population trends,  including the tremendous growth  of the cities and its effect on  resources and ecology. In addition consideration is being given  to an ecological approach to a  new Biology 11 course now in  the planning stage.  Mr. Brothers said that further  curriculum stfudies on such  things as land use and pollution  control are continuing. The committee of teachers and other  experts involved in these developments are encouraged to seek  assistants from expert consultants as needed.

Remove scorch marks from woo!  garments by rubbing lightly with  fine sandpaper or an emery board.  4ui_iiunuiniHuuuummiuuuttnHiummu��uunuuunuuunmi<  Two major women's volleyball  tournaments will help spike the  second annual British Columbia  Festival of Sports, May 20  through June 7.  The two volleyball tournaments involve juvenile and junior girls and both promise to  provide top-flight international  competition.  Largest tournament of the two  is the British Columbia juvenile  (under 16) girls' open and close  championships, June 3-5 at BCIT  gym, Burnaby.  The tournament will bring to  gether about 16 teams from  throughout the province as well  as two from California, the  Long Beach Hangers and American Martyres. Both come  from the Los Angeles area.  Strongest B.C. opposition for  *he Californians should come  from the Olympians, a Surrey-  based team that has just completed a 13-day Pacific Coast  tour against the juvenile women's championship team of Japan.  The  other  volleyball   tournament   is a  junior girls' invitational affair, May 24-29, at the  Mary  Jane  Shannon school  in  Surrey.  Three California teams, all  from Los Angeles, will compete  in this one. They are the Los  Angeles Trojans, Paloverdes  Hawks and Los Angeles Palisades. A host of B.C. teams will  also compete.  JOHN HARPER  Designer, Cabinetmaker  Carpenter  REASONABLE PRICES  886-7065  Go ahead and  buy that new home  you've always  wanted.  be glad to help with a  $1000 Home Acquisition Grant  or $5000 Second Mortgage  Loan.  Go ahead and look around. We can make it easier for you  to buy a new home of your choice or build one by providing  an outright $1000 Home Acquisition Grant or a $5000 Second  Mortgage Loan that may be used as part or all of your down  payment.  To qualify: You must be the first occupant of the new home  and must have lived in British Columbia for 12 months immediately preceding the date of purchase or completion of  construction.  The Loan can equal but cannot exceed the difference between the cost of the property and the first mortgage.  Previous British Columbia Government Annual Home-owner  Grants will be deducted from the $1000 Grant, but not if you  choose a Second Mortgage Loan.  Interest lower than on Federal N.HA  first mortgages  If payments are made promptly there will be an annual refund  of tip to 10%, reducing the effective interest rate on a 25-year  Second Mortgage Loan to 7V_%. For example, the monthly  payment on a $5000, 25-year Second Mortgage Loan is  $41.00 but the 10% refund would in effect reduce this to  $36.90.  All mortgages Fully Insured-  without extra charge  If the borrower who is the principal supporter of the family  dies, the Government of British Columbia will forgive the  remaining debt. There is no charge for this insurance - nor  are there any application, legal or registration fees or  charges.  Annual Home-owner Grants  reduce your property taxes  Once you have purchased your new home you become  eligible for the British Columbia Government Home-owner  Grant of up to $170 annually-an important factor in helping  to reduce the amount of your property taxes.

Minute  message  By this shall all men know  that ye are my disciples, if ye  have love one to another. John  13:35.  These are the words of Jesus  Christ, and yet while many  claini to.be His disciples, in  works they deny him.  Whosoever hateth his (brother  is a murderer and ye know that  no murderer hath eternal life  abiding in him. I John 3:15. In  I John 3:12, God asks the question, why did Cain slay his ^brother, and answers it in the same  verse: Because his (Cain's) own  works were evil and his brp-  .ther's righteous.: .7'--     7;-:  He that saith heis in the light  and hateth his brother, is in  darkness even until now. I John  2:9.  If a man say, I love God, and  hateth his brother, he is a liar, -  for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how  can he love God whom he hath  not seen? And this commandment have we from him, That  he who loveth God love his brother also. I John 4:20, 21  Hereby perceive we the love of  God, because he laid down his  life for us. . .1 John 3:16.  ���Rev. Walter S. Acfcroyd,  Pender Harbour Tabernacle  expands  tunate in being able to obtain  Mrs. Ann Spicer, social and volunteer service co-ordinator to  Mount St. Mary's Hosptal in  Victoria, as speaker. She told of  work being done by their organization for seetmingly hopeless  patients and responses obtained.  Films were shown of wheel  chair patients playing shuffle  board, others making useful articles. Paintings done by patients were displayed. Her address was very informative for  future volunteers at the extended care unit.  Mr. Wagemakers appealed for  improvement of the hospital  grounds so that patients' might  enjoy them. He also stated in a  question period that there are  now 2400 beds available for extended care in B.C. but that  there is a waiting list of 6,000  people which shows the real  need for such a prograan.  To be eligible for admission to  such a hospital you must first  be recommended iby your family doctor, then a board reviews  the different cases.  AH members agreed! that the  workshop had really been' worthwhile.  A regional meeting is being  held in Surrey on May 5. Members wishing to attend must advise Mrs. Rowberry.  Not all crows are black; some  have brightly colored feathers.  A symposium originally was a  a Grecian dinner party.  National effort  needed to curb  drugs menace  The non-medical use of drugs  by youth and adults in our society has reached* epidemic proportions and a solution is not  near at hand,. said Dfr. D. L.  Genumill, Coast Garibaldi Health  Unit Director.  The drug scene changes so  quickly that only a national effort will keep us accurately informed and abreast of the situation. The problem is by no  means confined to youth, but we  are concerned about our' young  people and hope that we shall  be able to assist them to make  the right choices in life.  Everyone in the community  is going to have to become involved. We need to shift our focus from* specific drugs to, the  society in which we live, he  said.  "I have confidence in oujtl  young people and I am optimistic albout their future. As adults,  we must hafve the moral courage to face up to our deficiencies. We can start by making  certain that the Family Unit  provides security, love and a  place for young people to let  their hair down. The majority  of young people merely need a  listener, a friend, and an advisor, and most would prefer that  their parents assume this role,"  he said.  Fortywfive cases of gonorrhoea  and three cases of syphilis were  reported to the health unit during 1970. Authorities agree that  the actual number of cases  would be four to five times this  figure if reporting was more uniform.  Gonorrhoea increased only  slightly over 1969. However, at  year's end there were indications that this disease was accelerating, not-only in our own  unit, but throughout British Columbia and the rest of Canada.  Gonorrhoea is increasing in  teenagers. The gonococcus is developing a resistance to air antibiotics, including penicillin. Suc-  eessiM control dependfe on good  reporting and elimination of  sources of infection. Educational programs in venereal disease  were carried out in all secondary schools during 1970. Public  education will increase during  1971.        ^  The control of venereal disease is a real challenge and re-  quiires the co-operation of many  members of the* community:  physicians; public health staff;  teachers; social workers.

Following an interschool conference on Wednesday, April 7,  when members of the Elphinstone Cabinet met with the Pender Harbour Student Council at  Pender Harbour, Prime Minister  Steven Lee said: "This meeting  was arranged with the hope that  better communiication . between  our two schools can be developed. We look forward to the day  when students of both Elphinstone and Pender Harbour will  be able to work together on- mutual problems' and exchange  ideas and information freely.  In. many ways we have had a  successful beginning here today.  I am confident in the months  ahead communications and rela-'  tions will improve."  Topics discussed at the,meeting ranged from commamity  problems such as drugs and recreation to such things as reduced ferry fares and a spring walk  a-thon. Arrangements are underway to develop an interscho*bl  social' affairs program for dances and a better iriterschool sports *  program.

DIXON, Supt.  .  COA5T-CHJLCOTIN  deau's. His affection appears to  be devoted to the house; where  he sits long and speaks often.  During the near interminable  debate on the government reorganization bill, Steve felt a  speech bubbling through his  teeth and on March 31, delivered  himself of one, parts of which"  are here reproduced.  Mr. Otto: "Mr. Chairman, I  have heard a most impassioned  plea in defence of parliament by  both the right hon. member for  Prince Albert and the hon. member for Nanaimo-Cowichan-The  Islands. They defended an institution which has been obviously  threatened by this bill, an institution that is really "a ghost. It  does not exist any longer.'. .  "... it is not the government  : that destroys Parliament and it  is not really the opposition.  'It is a group of circumstances which has made Parliament  that institution which these hon.  members think it is. I have only  devoted a short time to this institution, but I can see why  these hon. members who have  devoted a lifetime to it have  such great alfeiotion for parliament. It is a parliament of Alice  in Wonderland. . .  "I do not see that, this bill is  such a great threat.  "Indeed the whole tenor of  the speech made by the right  hon. gentleman from Prince Albert and the hon. member for  Nanaima-Cowichan-The Islands  was that if. the creation of these  ministries was (by separate bills  in. this house then somehow the  House, of Commons would have  .some power. Probably since the  day of Pitt the Younger, parliament ha�� not had any power except the power to delay.  "It is the delay that has discredited parliament in the eyes  of the Canadian people.  "The pariiaimentary institution   ;  was well suited to a very quiet  agricultural country. >  "Canada is not the place for  the old type of parliament, we  have to get things moving quickly and cannot be sedentary about  policies.  'Therefore, between  the  idiosyncrasies   of   this   parliament^  which. Hon.; geriti'emen opposite*"  so staunchly defend and the real  -  .facts of life in this country, we  have to devise some new forms.  "I  think  the prime minister  himself when .first   elected   as  .  leader of the Liberal party said  there was  too much power in  the administration. But it-is no  wonder when one ��� minister has  six  or  seven  different departments to handle.  "I do not, say that this bill  be perfectly right, but at least it  if we make no changes whatso-  is an attempt to recognize that  ever we will disappear. Not only  will the power which parliament  may or may not have disappear,  but our purpose in the minds of  the people will disappear.  "Unfortunately, democrocy itself is put to the fore.  "When the people of Canada  question our position, they also  question democracy.  "The danger is that if we lower ourselves in the eyes of the  people, what happens to democracy?  ". . . To say now that this par- ���  liaiment is something other than  what it really is, is putting it  over on the people of Canada, in  reality joining them with this  kind of Alice in Wonderland attitude toward parliament instead  of facing facts arid telling ourselves we have got to change.  "The chances are hat parliament as we know it will disappear.  "The chances are that parlia-  not adopt the republican system.  I think there is a good chance  that we will come to some compromise which will give us the  best of the two worlds, and in  which the people of Canada will  indeed have representatives who  speak for them.  "With all respect, let me repeat that all of the arguments -  I have heard are very good historical arguments and could1 be  the basis of debate for many  days. But when we come to the  real meat of this section, surely that has nothing to do with it  except that it is an attempt by  the government to make some  changes from time to time.  "If hon.   gentlemen  opposite  have any private ideas, then we  would welcome them.  "But let them not say, throw  the bill out simply because it  does not fit into the old, ghostly  ATHLETIC GRANTS  Educational grants-in-aid of  up to $2,000 each in value will be  available to more than 60 B.C.  athletes from the $1 million  grant program announced by  National Health and Welfare  Minister John Munro.

Regional letter  (Continued from Page 1)  streetlights, libraries, community centres!, etc, then obviously  extension is the answer, recognizing of course, that these items  have to be paid for; some  through an overall tax levy applied throughout the municipality and others such as local services, paid directly by those requiring and receiving them, by  frontage tax. Most of these services with the probable exception of blacktopph-g can be provided by the Regional District  on a specified area basis.  As an example, several built  up areas in the district now have  street lighting and an organized  garbage collection service using  this means. Briefly, if you want  many services and sense of participation in a community and1  are prepared to contribute to it  then boundary extension is to  your advantage; if you want the  minimum of essential services  then these can be provided by  the Regional District and it  would be to your advantage to  remain as you are.  2. Why does the VilHage of  Gibsons wish to extend its boundaries at a time when it appears  to be unable to service fully, the  area is already has?  I cannot answer this question  in the form submitted.  A partial answer is: The village is endeavoring to operate  its water utility in such a manner that will provide the best  service at low rates to its cus-  tofmers the majority of whom  are within the village boundaries. It does not wish to expend  money at this; time on the utility and thereby, presumably, in*-  cur an increase in rates. The  village also has a comparatively  long section of watermain ^nd  other lines' outside its i^undariies  in an area of increasing growth  and demand. It therefore naturally wishes to obtain, full control  over these lines pa^icularly as  they also carry the basic gravity  supply to the municLpaility. _\h-  other factor is that a utility operated by a municipality outside  its boundaries is subject io regulation by the Public Utilities  Commissiion (The Public Utili-;  ties Act does not apply to a. Regional District.)  3. What effect will the prp*-  posed expansion have on the  rates and taxes of the area concerned?  There would be an increase in  the amount of local taxes paid  as the  "municipal costs"  providing for n^unicipal services are  higher than the "outside area''  costs: which pyovidie for provincial and regional services. The  ���present   difference   is   about   2  mills  in favor of the  "outsidie  area.".Hq,wever, when a municipality  expands and its popula  tion rises it is mandatory for it  to  change   its   status.   Gibsons  coulld,   depending   on   the   cir-  cuimistances,   become   either   a  town or a district municipality  and when this occurs additional  services now provided and paid  for by the provincial _^ernment  became the responsibility of the  ^municipality.     Some     sservices  such as welfare and policihg atfe  quite expensive to operate and  produce substantial increases in  the mill rate.  4. Where \ are the proposed  new boundaries of the Village to  'be?  The Gibsons; Council answer  to this is hot very clear in re?  gard to Henry Road. I. would  presume that the answer means  they wQuld; apply the same principle on Henry Road to that on  Reed Road and put the dividing  line down, the centre. This creates prpbl^pis.in servicing in the  provision of utilities, road maintenance, street lighting, drainage, sidewalks, etc.  5. Would the residents of the  area be eligible to run for office  at the next election oif council?  ���Providing the village, following quickly upon the expansion  takes action under the provisions of Section 45 of the Municipal Act it should be possible for  qualified electors in the new  area to run for office. Section-  45, however, states in part "a  sup-tern entary list of electors'  shall be prepared by the Clerk  as soon as conveniently may be  after the extension." There is,  therefore no guarantee that the  Kst will be prepared in time to  obtain quialiification. The problem here is that candidates for  office are required to have their  names on the current voters list  and either on that of the previ  ous year or ona supplementary  list prepared under Section 45.  I think that it would be reasonable to assume that if boundary extension took place prior  to the end:>of;yVl^u^<tth^..'.Uie''mu-  nicipaiity could ''conveniently"  prepare the supplementary list  which would almost immediately  be followed by the regular list  thus permitting persons in the  newly acquired area to be nominated for office. After the end  of August owners and residents  in the new area would appear  on the voters list and be able to  vote but not run for office until  the following year.  6.   Would the village of Gib-study all regulatory bylaws  of  sons make any changes as re-  gairds the peeping of livestock  if the expansion took place?  You will note the village council answer to this question. However Section 28 of the Municipal  Act reads as. follows:  "In the case an addition is  made to. the areia' of a municipality, th*e by-laws and resolution of the municipality to which  the addition is mad,e extend to  the.^djditionpL are^i and! continue  in force until al|e*re(i or repealed by the, Cpunicil." It would,  therefore, appear, to be wise to  a municipality beforehand.  Enclosed with this letter for  easy reference is a copy of the  Village of Gibsons reply to your  enquiries.  You   will   appreciate  that for the sake pf brevity it is  not possible to quote all references to the Municipal Act in full  or give complete ir^oranation on  .-���some'-of- the matters raised. If  you do require further information and if I can be of any further assistance to  you,   please  let me know.  ���'���-Gharies F. Gooding,  Secretary 4rea surer.

My parents were living in  a common law mairiaige when I  was born but when I was about  three years old they got married but then when I was 18  they got divorced. Am I illegitimate?  A. There is no such- thing as  a comtmon law marriage by  British Columbia law. When  your parents married, you became legitimate and the effect  of marriage was retroactive so  as to make you legitimate" from  the time of your birth. The divorce has no effect on your status oif legitimacy. .  Q. The court said my parents' marriage was voidable and  the marriage was annulled. I'm  told this means they never were  really m__cried so does that  make me illegitimate?  A. If a so-called marriage is  declared void, it is said to have  never really been a marriage.  You would expect that any children of that marriage might be  decLared illegitimate but such is  not the case. The law provides  that children of a voidable marriage that has1 been declared  void, continue to be legitimate  notwithstanding  tha annulment.  Q. When my parents married, my father was already married and when my mother discovered this she, got the marriage annulled. Does that make  me illegitimate?  A. You will be considered  legitimate from birth, if your  parents' marriage was registered or recorded according to the  practice in the location where  they were married or if your  parents reasonably believed that  their marriage was valid. If you  are unsure about your 'status  you should consult a lawyer and  have him look into the ciroum-  staraces of your father's prior  marriage as well as the second  marriage.  Q. My father was reported  missing during the last war and  he never returned' so my mother  got a presumption of death certificate for him and remarried.  They had a child a year latter  and then my long lost father  turned up. Is the child illegitimate since my father is alive  and claims' my mother is still  his wife.  A. No, if the facts are exactly as you have related them  the fact that your father who  had been presumed dead, finally turned up alive, does not  make the child of your mother's  second marriage illegitimate.
