The -pertinent part of the West  S-eichelt argument published, in  the Coast-News Dec. 22 reads:  "Dear Slirs: The trustees1 of  West Sechelt Imprxwement District feel that' the imposition of  Bylaw 59, is 'unjust and unwarranted. We are opposed to the  Regional District arbitrarily setting bulk water rates by by-law.  Whether the Regional District  agrees that there is a contract in  force at'the"prescnt time'ornotr  does not alter the .fact.that the  matter is best handled by - contract. We believe the establishment of bulk water rates by a  negotiated contract to be the  much preferred method, iii fact  the only'method. Resorting to a  bylaw -is -the line of-least -resistance, a means to an easy end.  Thisbylaw^is nota bylaw for  the setting of bulk waiter rates  by the Regional District generally, but one designed specif ically  for setting rates for water used  by the- Improvement District  alone since the Regional District  does not sell water in bulk- to  any other ���consumer."   ,���  The finance committee, headed  by/Director Frank'Wes. in, its  by the less than fair presentation of the situation between the  two sides at the tiime of the bylaw submission.  The Regional board argument  states that negotiations ,with .the  WiSWID trustees led to', the; understanding, that the Region will  supply .bulk water, leaving the  distribution to* the -W,SWID._ It  was also agreed that WSW3JD  cu_tome__r should pay the same  water rate as the rest of the water users to provide additional  revenue to the Region -to offset  some of the rather heavy supply  costs to the WSWID. It was also  fully understood' that a< rate  structure should be adopted by  the Region which with due regard to the WSWID's debt commitments would not impose a  helavier cost to the individual  WSWID customer than that  borne by "the other'water users.  -To reduce the remaining supply " deficit further in future  years the trustees proposed and  the Region agreed that the boundaries of the WSWID would be  expanded to include' some water  demanding new subdivi-dons,  which could be achieved'Tby" the"  WSWID without material capital  cost to them,, During,.the earlier  stages Of the negotiatiions the  trustees had refused' permission  to s the Region to use that part  of their mains,:, Vi^hich was need-  ed \o supply the subdivisions directly. This is presently the only  method torget water to the' subdivisions - without - prohibitive  capital coste'ty, having to duplicate" * ah   existing   mate    The  ment  byUIC  local press1 and distributed to  various political and governmental, agencies.

It also  provided an additional bonus to  the WSWID customers by increas  ing the/daily average water, allowance to 225 gals: from the 170  gials per day'engineered rating  of the WSWID. Besides the provision of the $560 additional revenue to the region and some  penalty against excessive water  waste the bylaw does not contain  (Continued on Page' 7)  Hospital tax  to increase  e  Maintaining St. Mary's Hospital budget for 'this year was  one of the most complicated^ he  has ever seen, Chairman Frank  West of the hospital board finance comimittee, informed last  week's board meeting the mill  rate this year would be increased from-half a mill to somewhere  between two and three mills.  This came as the result of construction of the addition to the  hospital being completed and  repayment of the $500,577 loan  starting this year. The amount  to be raised would be about  $111,000 and based on last year's  assessment the tax would range  between two and three mills.

Aid. Ted Hume urged council  to keep after the sewer contractors to rectify bad spots that  have disturbed some citizens.  Mayor Peterson read from Regional District board January  meeting minutes items that affected Gibsons area.  ^Unemployment Insurance Commission insurance benefits to  those- laid off work, were given'  quite a workout at a union meeting Wednesday night last week  in the Legion hall, Gibsons.'

"  ,; John McNevin, president of  the Port Mellon union was chairman and George Ingram, UIC  representative came fromi Vancouver to hear the complaints.  Mr. Ingram on leaving took  some  complaints  with' him   to  - Vancouver.  ,The union president maintained that reading the act and its  interpretation differed widely,  lie hoped that labor councils  would take up the issue and get  it solved'.  President McNevin said that  after the act was passed there  - were 29 amendments by order-  inHcounoil. He described the  whole thing as absolutely ridi-  ctilous and unworkable, resulting in some fantastic'hardships.  Mr. Ingram countered by saying  that some of the n__scalculations  could be caused by discrepan-  : j$s% * i&/'___^loye��-c^-^^  Before the meeting ended Mrr  Ingram said, in the event of another shutdown at the mill, that  UIC , representatives would be  here on the job in the hope they  could put the men straight on  ���calculating their possoble UIC  payments. He said that when  c_a_ms are made the employees'  on-the-job time for the previous  20 weeks would be the basis for  payment and if there were days  Off during that period such days  would be deducted'. However,  one speaker said that as they  paid dues for every day whether  they worked or not they should  get a return for those days just  as though they had worked.  Oops! Sorry!

Last week the Coast News set  real state values (mentally at  least) sky high when it reported  ���as some people thought that  four lots were sold at $90,000. \  Such was not the case. The  $90,000 concerned the cost of the  proposed Legion hall. The four  lots 'happened to get in the way  by the omission of a comma sep-'  arating the lots from the cost of  the proposed hall.r  In an all-out effort to speed up  unemployment insurance pay-  x ments, Hon. Bryce Mackasey,  min'ster of labor, has ordered  all unemployment insurance  claims filed since December 1,  1971, be reviewed during the  next ten days.  "Any claim that is found tp be  late because the normal process  has failed to produce payment  will be paid within 72 hours," he  said.  ���The con-miss'on received and  processed over 400,000 new  claims since December 1, 1971,  and ,is now issuiing about 600,000  cheques every two weeks.  , Most delays in receiving payment, the cornanission found, occur for these reasons: the claimant fails to fill out the application form properly; the employer falls to provide the record of  contributions or separation certificate; errors or omissions occur in processing the claims.  Idea rejected  Request that the Boy Scouts  Association cap-talize its land  tax over 24 years in one lump  sum instead of year by year was  turned down by the Regional  District board.  The Scout association wanted  to pay Camp Byng's water land  charge of $4,000 in a lump sum.  It was pointed out by board  members that this meant a 30  percent reduction. The board  preferred not to sett a precedent ���  as it would force others paying  the full rate to have to make up  the shortage.

Mayor rejects alternate cut-off  An alternate highway cut-off  about three quarters ?of a mile  north of the proposed one which  has raised a considerable pro-!  test,Ydoes not meet with the approval of Mayor Walter Peterson of Gibsons.  He said so at the Thursday  night Regional <''board' meeting  last week when-the board's planning committee reported on its  study of the minutes of the Jan. ���  12 meeting between the board,  Gibsons council and highways  officials.  Mayor Peterson argued that  the newly proposed route would  run through Gilbsons water shed  area just above the source and  it would affect the 700 water  users now on Gibsons system..  He added that board members  were hot aware of this and that  it should be included in the  minutes.  Here is the board's planning  comimittee report which* was adopted:  The committee studied the  minutes of the committee of the  .whole dated January';'-12, concerning the relocation of High  way 101. It was noted that the  department of hiighways could  not accept a route location following the Hydro alignment.  How-aver, an aflteraatiVje was  suggested which the department  . would - be-. willing; to consider.  The ccimmittee received copies  of poi-:esporidence from the vil-  1 age's technical advisors indicating that the original ~ align*"  ment would be most beneficial  to the village. The committee  recommended that the planning  director of the board as well as  the planning consultant of the  village 0f Gibsons study the Impact of the various alignment  proposals.  .  The committee suggests the  advisors look at the land use  eo nsequences a nd the effect of  altering the number of access  points to the highway.'.-Alternate  land use plans should be incorporated into the study. Such a  study should be completed as  soon as possible. May or.. ^Peterson from the Village of Gibsons  indicated it would make its '  technical advisors available for  s*uch a study.  The following letter addressed  to the Regional District board  was also mailed to Gibsons council where at Tuesday night's  meeting it was read:  Dear Sirs: Despite the controversy on the proposed new highway, we believe that it should be  brought to your attention once  more, that the route recommended by the department* of highways, approved by the Village Of  Gibsons, endorsed by the Gibsons Ohaanber of Commerce,  who represent the businssmen  of the GibsonsYDdstriot, now we  the undersigned who are property owners along this ^proposed route and represent over one  mile of this mile and one half in  the area between North Road  and Russell Road where most of  the disagreement seems to stem.  We feel this route not only the  most beneficial to the well being  of the area, but a route that can  be finalized and constructed  without additional costs to the  taxpayers, and in time to connect with the major highway improvements being carried on  from Sechelt to Pender Harbour  (without the fuss we are being  forced to endure).  We therefore implore you to  accept the department of highways recommendations in their  enr*nee��ring and feasibility \ study, so that the Sunshine Coast  can be a mecca for tourists and  industry, not' the laughing stock  of B.C. because Of our parochial  views.  ���F.G.

Once-in-a-while a speech is made which deserves more recognition than it gets in the daily news media. The Coast News would   like to* publish an entire speech at times (narely). However, excerpts from a speech is about all it can do..  In this case* the speech- was made by Robert W. Bonner, Q.C,  ..who usually makes speeches well above the usual verbiage. Recent-;  ly he addressed, as vice-chairman of MacMillan Bloedel limited,  the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Toronto. Below are some paragraphs from, a speech headed Scenario for the Seventies.  "I consider this to be the appropriate time for Canadian businessmen to reflect on the everttiful days of 1971 and to ponder their  ���meaning for the future. That exercise may lead-you -~ as it has  me��� to the conclusion that we are at the end.of one era in our  history and at the threshold of another. A mulch more complicated  era has already begun.  "There is scarcely any aspect of our national life or economSxi  existence which has remained unaltered or unaffected by the  world's postwar period of recovery. That this- period has ended is  implicit in the events which President Nixon's speech of August 15  set in motion.  "We are no longer viewing the non-Soviet world as one in  which American leadership is unquestioned in either a political or  economic sense. Vietnam,, the dilemma of the Arab-t_srae_i cook-  pit, Ameriijcan dollar devaluation, the new international payments  accord announced after the Nixon-Pompidou meeting, President  Nixon's frank statements about the economic strengths1 of the Common Market and Japan;���-all these events and experiences1 attest  to the fact that while American power is foremost, it isi increasingly foremost among equals.  "New nations and new nationalisms abound. Not all seek or  follow American leadership or support. Tt is a world unrecognizable in 1945 terms.  "Where are the monarchies and their systems of the 19th  century?  "Where is the leadership structure of the 1930s?  "In what way does today resemble 1945?  "The disconcerting feature of recent years, pai^cularly last  year, is that developments seem to have taken so many of us by  surprise. The degree of surprise is a function of our national introversion.. We spend so much of our t_in_e scrambling over our  seats in the bleachers, we tend to lose sight of the game being  played on the field."  Mr. Bonner is so right! Provincialism is the scramble while  the internationals play on undisturbed.  An ever-negative attitude  The year 1971 was a year of many questiiOns and of few ans-  wars ��� questions mostly about what is wrong, what is unjust, what  ds unfair.  The constant harping on the problems which face tms country,  the ever-negative attitude which many of us have towards governs  ment, business, institutions will only erode away, any pi-de in this  country we may pretend to have.  This does not mean that one must turn away from the pitfalls,  from the problems we have. In no way must the sufferings of the  disadvantaged continue. In no way must the rights of minorities  be. denied, nor of the majority cast asidei  However, when prominence,, both mental and physical, is given those who wish to destroy, those who wish to deny, those who'  wish to hate, then corrections are due.  -The vocal l^nch-speakihg Canadians among us feel mistreated: the English have exploited them for years, they say. The vocal  English-speaking Canadians in turn blame the Americans for their  -ills.' '���  Isn't it time we^stopped trying to blame some outside group  for our ailments. Isn't it time we stopped trying to blame ourselves.  Isn't it time we stopped deliberating over the problen_s that befall  us, stopped this constant search for culprits and began s^kmg  solutions! ��� OPTION CANADA Bulletin.  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO     .

We have, actually felt joy at. awakening to  find our evergreen j^yground  . transformed into a winter wonderland. Beautiful to look at, but  devastating in the final count.  -The winter of 1934-35 was a  disaster. Christmas day of '34  was a typical west coast Christmas, mild and wet. Within a few  days King Winter came roaring  in from the Strait of Georgia.  Temperatures dropped with daily snowfalls of 12-14 inches. In  the Fraser Valley snow and whis  tling east winds kept all roads  blocked. Snow ploughs were useless; the winds' filled the plough-'  ed sections as fast asi they "were  cleared. There was untold damage in the orchards. Cars were  abandoned as drivers could  make no headway against the  deep drifts. In the city conditions were just as chaotic.       1.  On January 20, the snowfall in  Vancouver - registered 17 inches /  paralyzing all traffic. Street  oars jaanmed with passengers  became snowbound, resulting in*  many ppopfe having to find ae-r  cpmmodation for the night yrtth^t,  friends, i-elatiori��,or wherever*  they could. Stores remained  closed because few people would  venture out to battle deep snowdrifts. Oh, for the joys of childhood, the schools were closed.  Schools closed and those wonderful Kills for toboggans, tin  trays, wooden slats, anything  that would slide. Apart from the  children's joy, it was truly a  winter disaster. '      .  The more recent winter of 1968  69 will long be remembered by  residents of the lower mainland.  Daily snowfalls of 10-12 inches  with near zero temperatures  was indeed an unpleasant change  from the usual > Pacific coast  winter. In Vancouver alone, hundreds of Water pipes froze. Many  buildings, small ones and large, .  collapsed under the tremendous  weight of snow and ice. The  surrounding countryside assumed a scene of glittering glaze, as  beautiful as it was devastating.  Boughs snapped leaving the trees  stripped. Much of the lower  mainland was plunged in darkness as power lines lay a tangled mass amid the snow. To  add to the misery, fuel supplies  History has proven that coming events cast their shadows  before them. Do we. recognize >  the shadows?

Does this change to winter  sports, and arctic clothing: - predict that arctic winters are taking over our mild balmy climate  we've loved 'and boasted about?  Could-thiils be the Shadow oast  by coming events?  With a deep layer of cold air  stationary over south-western  B.C., writes Thorne K. How in  the ���Centennial Review of Me-;  teorology in British Columbia,  moist, December, 1934, air from  the Pacific rode over the frigid  air and released its moisture in  the form of snow. A total of  17*4 inches plugged Vancouver  on Dec. 20th, closing schools,  mils, businesses and paralyzing  all traffic. Cars were abandoned as drivers' could make no  headway against the unyielding  drifts. Streetcars, jammed full  with commuters who ordinarily  drive their own vehicles, became  snowbound and were left oh the  sitreets. Businesss closed because few people dared to venture out in the three toi four  foot snow drifts. V  '/-Residents of Princetph had to  contend with a 63 inch fall! Sections of the interior reported tremendous snowfalls as 3,000 people in. the ' Bridge River area  were isolated as a result of 35  miles of road being under 10 feet  of snow. Nelson reported 12 feet  of snow with a minimum temperature df 17 below. The rest  of the Kootenays was buried under 4 feet of snow. In the Cariboo, residents' of Williams Lake  found themselves digiginig tunnels in order to exit from their  home's: Needless to say, all  roads in the area were impassable as temperatures throughout the area hovered around the  50 below mark. A P.G.E train,  caught in a slide near Pemberton, was snowbound for several,  'days. ���'���.���-���������'' .-'..-'  Finally,.. mild l Pacific air sre-  turhed to. the region and the cold  arctic air mass retreated rapidly, leaving in its wake, a snow-  covered region in the throes .of*  a quick thaw. In Victoria' the  temperature at noon on the 20th  stood at a frigid 22 degrees. By  midnight the mercury/had leaped1 to 37 degrees, and by the  tame most. Victorians had finished their^ b*rea__Fa*st the thermometer was reporting a balmy 47!  In less than 20 hours the tem-  perature had risen 25 degrees!  In Vancouver the minimum  temperaiure Dec. 20 was fiive  above. The maximum temperature the very next-* day had  soared to 43! This sudden moderation of temiperature led to a *  quick departure of the white  paralysis which in turn presented another, and possibly more  serious "problem'. ToruTential rainfalls d-escended upon the area  for seyerai dfays following the  rapid departure of King Winter.  Many roofs succumbed to. the  tremendous weight "of accumulated snow and water; among  them, the Forum roof in Vancou-.  ver ait a loss estimated at $70,000  The lower Fraser VaUey did not  escape: Vestiges, Of the rapidly  retreatinjg cold arctic air remain  ed in the valleys forming pools  of- frigid air; As the warm Pacific air flowed oyer these pools  and released its mo-stare, the  liquid drops froze on contact  with objects within this natural,  freezer and the valley aasiuimed  a fantasy-like scene of glistening glaze. As beautiful as it was  ���devastating, the ice coated ev-  eryMng from roads to telegraph wires and1 trees. Boughs  snapped under the tremendous  weight,   reininding residents  of  artillery fire during the war.  fSoon telegraph and telephone.  Wires were a tangled mess as  poles as well as wires gave way  ��� to the ice. Many orchards were  ru'ned as: trees were stripped  clean. In some places, four or  five feet of snow were covered  by an imch thick layer of icy  glaze: There soon was a shortage of forage for % cattle as all  pasture land was locked in a prison of ice. Barns and many older homes unable to'support the  extra burden collapsed, in many  cases leaving families h-oneles��.  The mod*era__i)g weather and  torrentiial downrpour�� "introduced  ViEwlcouverites to flooding never  before experienced in this west'  coast city v In the four days fol-;  lowing the de^fture of freezing teinperatures over ten and  one half inches of rain descended upon Vancouver.' The 'final  accumulated total of precipitation of 20.65 inches for the  month: of January surpassed all  monthly records and stands today. It is interesting to note that  3.81 inches of that total fell as  snow for a total snowfall of 38.1  inches.x. The : average January  precipitation in Vancouver is  only .8.44 inches while the,annual average stands at 60.23,  barely three times thiis phenomenal January accumulation.  .<IAMWWMMMVWWW>WWMMVM��MMVWIMMMMMM^  N.

The usual number of slow  movSng, obsolete and worn books  have been discarded. Some of  the memberships, inactive for a  long period, haive been dropped  from the records', in effect bringing that file up to date.  The lilbrary has comipleted another successful year. Adult cir-  culatiion was 10,052 and juvenile  was 3,182. ���.,  The revised list shows, 373  adult members and 394 juvenile. The juvehile section has a  reasonable increase.  v Taking into consideration purchases, donations and discards1,  adult books went from 3,607 in"  1970 to 3,717 in 1971, and juriior  books from 1,812 in 1970 to 1,858  in 1971.  The Library association ils in  a sound financial position, the  result of continued careful ad-  miri-stration. The bank balance  will be substantially reduced by  the cost of moving and the purchase of new books as* soon as  our more spacious quarters' become alvailable.

Understand together.  860 grade school children stood in below .zero weather fo form this living flag.  The true north, strong and free... and  together. How do we keep it that way?  Well, the first step is for each of  us to begin to understand our fellow  Canadians. They may live a thousand  miles away. They make speak crpliffer-  ent language. They may be Canadians/  not by birth but by choice. And the  more different they are, the more  understanding they need.  That's easy to say. But how do  we do it?  Well, if we want to keep our  country together, we have to understand that some Canadians need more  help than others. That we cannot sotv��  our problems unless we help a lot of  Canadians to catch up.  - It's not easy to understand the  other fellow. Especially if sometimes it  seems as though he doesn't understand  you. Yet one thing issure. There are a  lot more people who want to understand and want to keep Canada together than those who would tear it  apart. But it's going to take time and  we've got to start now.  If we don't, what will we ever say  to our children and their children when  they ask us, "Where were you when  there was still .a 'chance* to save  Canada?"  /���   ' :    '������:������-. -  ������'������I' - t,; '      ���  The advertising industry and your community Board or Chamber.  ability to oonform with a goodly  portion of this policy our annual  provtfneia. grant of $500 has been"  cut to $50, This will, .probably  partly re-adjust itself with the  new facilities Ihat.the municipal-  Sty is presently preparing for us.  The mt-iioipality has also assured us that it would giive the library reasonable help over and  above the $500 annual grant if it  becomes essential.  Regardless of changing times  and customs' we continue to fill  a real need in this community of  readers.

With the introduction of the  Lilbrary Development Commission's minimum standard policy;  with1 the new and. modern faeil-  fities provided by the municipality; with the growth in popuT  lation, changes are inevitable in  the operation of our library.

Cuylits, planner, reported that most .  of the leases 'handled in 1971  were- in the Pender .Harbour  area. During the/year there  were : 150    lease    appMcations  The Regional board undertooik  the planning function on a full  time basis in April, he ssM. This  permitted adequate administration of the zoning by-law, lease  applications, sub-idiiyision applications and related functions!.  Long nanige planning c__r_men_-  ed in the latter part of the year.  The zoning by-law has been  guidled through three major revisions and now appears to ibe  a workable document. Some discussion is still being held between the department of *higih-  ways and the board coni-ceniing  zomng in Electoral1 Area A (PenderHarjbour).At present the  original' zoning in that area  stands. In future, the board will  be faced with applications to  rezone, as individual owners1 ap  proach the board with their particular ideas of development.  This year two special reports  were prepared by the depart-  iment ��� one concerning ancihor-  ages and upland access along  the B.C. coast and the other was  directed toward the relocation  oif Highway 101 at Gibsons. The  former report ihiasi been very  well. received while the latter  provided a basis for extensive  discussion. t  With regard to mapping, arrangements have been made to  obtain plastic -originals of the  1:500 series perpared; by the department Of lands. This will permit the board to keep a permanent record of subdivisions and  prints tff updated maps can be  made on request.  With reference to subdivisions,  the board has a Sub^vis-on Bylaw adtehinistered jointly by the  board's planning department and  the provinidial di_|>a_1;mer_t *of  highwaiys. The board has been in  the process of amending the bylaw since October 1970.  \ty  For the informal��� of residents in the ^^ Regional  Areas we would advise the following changes:  1. On ApriM, 1972 single (passenger and/or vehicle) resident fares will be  obtainable to persons who are able to present their residents identification  card at the ticket booth af time of tiriivel.  2. Any member of a family travelling alone will need an identification card if  he/she wishes the residents rate. It therefore is necessary for each family:  member who expects fo travel without the head of the family to obtain individual resident identification cards. It should be noted that parents or guardians can complete residents affidavits for minors. Identification cards Will  be available at the following locattoins commencing January 31,1972 at the  times listed.  Monday - Friday - 8:30 a.m. -12 noon  1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.  1.

We feel their  latest demand that only a contract could regulate the rela-  ionship between the Reg-onr and  the> WSWED can only be inter-  . preted ais another gambit in  their delaying action.  The trustees are absolutely in  error when they ���claim that the  bylaw a^ndanent is 01% de-  s_gned to" discriiminate against  them. We can assure them that,  although they are our first bulk  buyersj we hope to add some  others in due opurse, to whom  the bylaw will equally apply.

The trusitees' attempt  to use 4.t to cry discrimahatiori  does not stand up to closer scrutiny.  Coirtimiing, the boaird mafltn-  tains it has the greatest difficulty to undeaisland their insistence  on a contract only. Their alleged reasons that the board has a  short memory or, could have, is  an1 unwarranted' slur against  present and! future directors, implying they have alr^adjy in the  pastt or wil ii. fuftuire violate  their oath of office. If the trustees of the WSWID have any evidence for the past, would they  come forward with their proof.  As to the behavior of future directors we leave any innuen-  dtoes to the trustees. This sort of  aspersioni is rather apt to backfire without damage to the target-'. "..  The whole clamor for a con-  traict begs: the question whether  special pi_v_leges> should be conferred upon one group, which  could not be enjoyed by the  very much larger number of  other waiter users, who absorb  a major portion of the heavy  WISWED supply costs. These ooslts  are fully substantiated by entgin-  eering data and-given to the  4}rustees. Aithougl. they still  pretend doubt about the figures  they never took the trouble to  disprove them.  "if aind when there has to be a  rate change, everyfbod'y will have  to contribute a fair share. No  small group can rightly demand  special privileges, which would  permit them to escape by un-  loadinig their share to other  shoulders. Conyersely, nobody  can be singled out to bear a  larger share than the rest.

No p_urtic_liar contriact would  be required.  However, just to lay that contract affair finally to rest', we  had once more o_r legal counsel  review the contract between  WSWID and the former Sechelt  Water Works Ltd. He still con-  firimis our stand that it is null  and void.  The information supplied by  Bruce E. Emerson, legal counsel  for the Regional District follows:  : "In my opinion, in the.light of  Section 568 of the Municipal Act  it is clear that the legislature  intended that the water authority should exercise such authority by by-lawi and' that, as in  the enactment of other by-lawsi,  its authority to determine the  rates, terms and cond-tions is  unilateral and unreserved.  "The law in this country has  a-ways been that the m_a_k_pal  water utility, in supplying water,,  is not entering into a contract at  all. The arrangement does not  have the legal xnc-dence oif a  contract. The utility s_mply sup-,  plies the water and the consuan--  er pays for it, but the supply of  such water infers no contractual lights on the user at" ail.  The user is bound to pay, but  the supplier is not bound to supr  ply. I need only mention everyone's arrangements with B.C.  Hydlro or the B.C. Telephone  Company to demonstrate the  analogy. .-...".;  QVIy conclusion on this issue is  that the Regional Ddstrilct" is  without authority to enter into  a contract with the Improvement District for the supply of  waiter. The, Regional Diisttrict  must proceed by by-law. It could  proceed by contract andi adopt  the contract by by-law, but enabling leg-slat-on would have to  be obtained from the legislature  to authorize the Regional District to enter such contract in  the first distance."  <���*���>���*���*��� -------.--".--- AT- ....... .."^ ....       . ^rT7T~~r~Z~~7TZ rmT-iTTiiiw     "r~*~-rl~'~^JW''_l i.j. juui ���jLi- in rt ���������... .    jiu..

Peter Trower now at the mature age of 40, has plenty going  for him. Brought up in these  parts, Pete the Poet received  his early .schooling at Port Mel  lon, then 'briefly in Vancouver  and when the family returned to  Gibsons, was a Grade 10 pupil in  the old secondary school. Stan  Trueman, now a retired high  school ipraiciipal, recalls Pete as  a quiet, studiously-inclined scholar holding good grades, a bit of  a dreamer, and an avid reader.  One thing in particular Mr.  Trueman recalls, that Pete elect  ed) to take Latin as one of his  language subjects. This was a  bit unusual as he was the only  pupil in the school that eiven  thought of Latin as an elective.  It is to his teachers' credit that  Trower was given a thorough  grounding on the subject. While  v.  HARM MEM, HOME LTD.

At present, Pete is poiisthing  up several poems of the woods,  among these five pieces that  have already been accepted in ad.  vance of publishing by Thomas  Nelson, text book publishers for  inclusion in their forthcoming  Grade Eight school reader.  Irene, Glassford who taught at  Port Mellon saw another side of  Pete, a bit of a heller in his  wilder days, when he would  come pounding on her. door in the  wee small hours and demand to  be psychoanalyzed������ this was  done to the accompaniment of  mugs of steaming), strong coffee  and slathers of toast, bacon and  eggs.  Grace Wiren, another retired  teacher, now at Hopkins Landing, although she never taught  Trower, came to know him well,  as a friend of her sons, Jack  and Randy. Many's the time  Pete was on the receiving end'  of a stinging lecture for his  shortcomings, said Mrs. Wiren.  "I used to bawl him out severe-  . ly ��� he was1 such a likeable rip.  Even then I couldln't help but  realize what great potential  Peter had!. I'd tell him fee had  to stand on his own two feet and  make those wonderful dreams  come true. I must say he took  it .all1, in good ipa-rt and would  even thank me for the lecture.  Peter, to me, was a very spe*-  dal sort of person."  Bruce Campbell of Hopkins  Landing rememibers Pete best as  a boyhood friend when they both  attended! the old two-room Seai-  side Park school house at Port  Melon. Two teacherswere re-  celledi, Eva May Healey, now  retired in Ontario and a Miss  Ireland whose whereabouts is  swallowed' up in the folds of  . time.  These two close friends, succeeded in grow-i-g up together  in a mill town settlement with-  out getting' into to> niiich trouble. " Possibly the fact they were  practically isolated and with) no  roads to lead therhi asitnay" had  something to _fo with it. Campbell reinemibers (Pete was forever drawing cartoons and in  fact, created his own comic  'striips.' ���' ��������� '��� ������  In his omnivorous reading  Pete was particularly keen - On  science fiction stories and when,  on one of their hilkesi through the  woods, they stuimibled on a des1-  efted loggei's cafbin where they  found mildewed stacks of (back  numbers of Amazing Stories  -magazines, Pete was in seventh  heaven.  To the Braithwaites, Pat and  Frank, Pete will always remain  an enigma. They encountered  Gibsons baffling poet when they  ���first came to this part of the  country sax years ago. Roth  Fi'arik and Pat regard Pete as'  a, good friend and understand  him as well as anyone. Rut they  too share the general' puzzlement, that why one gifted with  such obvious talent Mi the gift  for words, has not done something big about it over the years.  "Why, Pete fairly oozes* poetry. Good stuff too, no fouar-letter  word tripe or soul-sick drivel!"  according to Frank. "'Pete's  verse is virile and redolent of  8       Coast News, Feb. 2, 1972.  the back woods1."  Many's the impromptu reading session the Bradthwaites  have attended in the Trower's  concerted two part garage out  at the back, which Pete shares  with his brother Marty. According to Pat, Pete is a sort of  Pied Piper. Everywhere he goes  along with his 'battered brief  case, bulging with verse, you'll  find him accompanied by a fascinated audience, ranging from  the quite young up through to  the oldsters, and Pete, is only  too willing to read his. stuff,  quite indifferent to his surroundings, whether in a beer parlor  or a commune, high up on the  upper readhesi of Mount Elphinstone .��� there -you'll find Pete  weaving a spell with wonderful  words.  It was Les Peterson, who perhaps more than any other single  person, gave early guidance and  encouragement to Pete. When  Les returned from World War  Two, he was quick to realize  the genius that lay within Trower and counselled him to be his  own self in all hits: writings, and  not to "be swayed from his natural metier: the telling of the  story of the West Coast logger.  Spring will not come again to  unlock the doors of early ac-  comiplishmeint, for Pete at 40 is  past the first fine flush of youth.  This is reflected toy the superlative exce-lemce of the more  recent poems he has put toge^  thef in his thaird and latest book  Between the Sky and the Splinters, now well in the works and  under consideration by a leading  Canadian Ibodk publishing house.  He is also busily revising his  first book, hitherto unpuiblisli-  ed, There are Many Ways, while  his more recently published  poems, Moiving Through a Mystery, beautifully -Illustrated by  Jack Wise, in a limited edition  of 1,000 copies and published in  1969, is all but out of print.  Peter is also at work on the  lyrics for a recorded folk album and if one of the songs,  Dwindling Sally, is a sample of  what is yet to come, this album  should have high acceptance.  There's no doubt Pete the Poet  has plenty going for him right  in his own hometown and more  waiting for him in the big world  outside. While his friends declaim, if he would only get Off  ���his (butt and grab hold Off a destiny that must be manifest, even  to him.  Bruno Gerussi, who called in  on Pete, armed with his tape  recorder, while working with the  CBC series The Beachcomibers1,  did a spontaneous, on-the-sipot  interview, that appeared on Ger-  ussi's network morning show.  Bruno did a (beautiful job in  reading several of Pete's more  recent poems. As a former west  coast logger himseiLf, Bruno  quickly identified with Trower  and drew hitm out to make a-  delightful broadcast-  Without admitting it, Pete  hopes the publishing and accept-,  arice of his new hook Between'  the Sky and the Splinters1, will  unlock the door financially and  free him once and for all from  the insularity of his pent-up  life.

"  Point of law  (By a Practicing Lawyer  Q. My wife has been in a  mental institution for over four  yeairs. Can I get a difvorce because of her insanity?  A. No, you cannot get a divorce because your wife is insane. Insanity is not a ground  for divorce. You may be able to  get a divorce on the ground that  you have been living separate  and apart from your wife for  over three years, however, judges have decided in similar eases  that mere physical separation  during the three year period is  not sufficient and it is necessary  to show that the matrimoninal  relationship has ceased. This  may depend to some degree on'  the extent of your wife's illness  and possibility of recovery. You  , should consult a lawyer.  Q. I want to divorce my husband. Westall live together but  for the past few years he has  been impotent. Will his impotence enable nie to^get a d_->-  voree?  A. Impotence in itself is not  a ground for divorce. It may,  however, amount to .mental cruelty which renders future cohabitation intolerable. Generally,  though, if you and your husband  have been living a normal married life in all other respects you  would not have grounds for divorce.  Q. My husband was an alcoholic for many years.

JUNIOR BOWMNfjfe  Ori Sunday, Jan. 30^junior  bowlers from Gilbsons1 travelled  ���to Cranberry Lanes, Powell River for a competition match. --  The juniior girls team were the  victors by af small margin. The  boys team lost to Powell River  heavily, as did: the single boy  and the single girl. They had a  great time and enjoyed their  visit.  Powell River junior bowlers  have a large choice of players,  and the average of four years of  bowling,. whereas, here, only a  few bowled two years-. Their  boys are great bowlers and I'm  confident we can win on the re-  ti_rn match shortly.  Many .hanks to the parents  who volunteered to transport the  bowlers to Powell River, though  it was a very tiring itrip.before  bowling, of- almost four hours of  travellings, y l-^:x :'��������� y'���'-': ".  A competition meet is already  being arranged1 for West Vancouver.  To all bowletrs and parents,  thank you. Mike Prokopenko,  (coach).  BASEBALL TOUKNEY  Alderman Gerry Dixon an/-  nounced at last week's cb*__ac_l  meeting that he has. entered Gibsons in the provancial Festival  of Sports for this year. He said  there would, ibe a baseball tourney during the May 24 holiday  weekend.  Basketball  (By BRAD NORRIS)  This weekend's basketball  proved disastrous as the Cou*r  gars were pitted against the  Terwpleton Titans from Vancouver. The Cougars slipped in the  first few minutes and in ho time  the score was ten to none for  the Titans.  The Cougars came back however and the quarter ended wuith  the score 12-8 in favor of Tem-  ipieton. The second quarter was  when things really started falling apart for the Couigars. The  Titans threw a full court press  on the Cougars and it ended up  in a few baskets from steals.  The game progressed iand in  many ways resembled a rugby  match as good basketball was  not played.   ~  The Cougars/although yet to  be defeated in their own league  have lost five straight games to  AA competition.  . In the game the top scorers  for Elphie were Brad Norris  w:th 13, Wayne Smith with 6 and  Bill Sneddon with 4.  Next weekend Elphi travels to  Temipleton where they will be  guests along with the North Delta Huskies in a tournament. This  should prove interesting as the  Huskies are last year's high  school basketball provihcial  champs. ���''���".'   .:":  i.  NOTICE  ��� ���--..'.' ���' f '   .
