While nothing definite has  been said officially where the  highway will be located, a  growing feel-ng points) to the  new highway being placed in  ���the original location, about  1,000 yards north of the present higihway instead of Route  C, in vicinity of the B.C. Hydro  line.  This situation was revealed  at last Thursday night's monthly meeting of the Regional Dis-,  trict board when the planning  commission of Area E through  which the proposed highway  will run, sought clarification  of some recent events. ' -'.  However the board dad not  feel an* the' mood1 for a discussion on what was termed rumors only ,and turned down  the effort.  The discussion was brought  to an end when Director Mayor Ben Lang and Director  Frank West moved a motion  :tihat a letter be sent to the  highways director of locations  asking, whether a specific reply on whether a decision had  been made-on the loca'tion of  the highway. Also that the director of locations' would be  . advised that vthe ���board's position and recommendations in  regard, to location Route G  (Hydro  area)   are  unchanged.  (Late Monday Chairman  Harry Almond decided a delegation .of four or wiore wipuldrK  - arrange fpr~ an "intie_view^a:te"  with Victoria highways,; department officials next week.  The chairman and Director J.  H. Tyner along with representatives of Area E planning  commission '.''���will be invited as  well.)  The vital parts in the letter  read to the board from Area E  planning commission, seeking  clarification,   follows:  "W. have written to Mrs.  DaWson in the hope that she  will take the wishes . of her  constituents into consideration.!  We also ask the Regional District board to obtain some ad-:  dtitiona'l explanation from one  of their own directors Why  duly passed resolutions can be  upset that easily by some off  hand .-negotia .loins behind' the  backs erf everyone.  "Past experience has shoWn  that occasionally statements by  the   mayor   should   be   taken  with   some  reservation.   HoW-  ever,   this  issue   is   much   too  grave to be taken lightly. Qur  people here take an extremely',\  dim view and strongly protest ���  ���that   our   directors   can   play  fast   and   loose  with " lawfully  passed resolutions of "the vot-,  ers   and   their   representatives  to. bestow some rewards secretly to their favorites.  "The mayor's visits to Victoria in company of some of  the people who are reported as  having gone with him leave  some doubt about the propriety and should be clarified.  "|W_ think we are entitled' to  some open and full answers  for the . benefit of all people  vitally concrened:  "1.

He comes to Gibsons from Blue River where he  Was stationed for some time.  ���..'���''���     *  Public cool over planning  The general public is apathetic to planning, E. R. Cuylits, planning director of the  Regional board said in his July  report  to' the  board   meeting  last 'week.  Reporting on public participation m planning he said that  at meetings interesting and.  valid, pointe are made concerning future development but  generally the public is apathe  tic to planning. A request dn  newspapers last winter for  comments regarding planning  resulted in no replies.  Mr. Cuylits reported he has  attended meetings of various  advisory groups, the Roberts  Creek Community Association,  Secret Cove people.and1 trustee's of Garden Bay Waterworks for discussion: of various  ���issues relating to planning and  development of the area.  Tenders regarded too high  Tenders were opened Friday  in the Municipal Hall for the  Sunshine Coast Kiwanis Village  construction.  There were two tenders, one  from Westwood Contractors of  Vancouver at $304,276 and the  other from Gaines (Construction of Gibsons for $280,286.  Both tenders were considerably higher than the amount  allowed by the provincial government and Central Mortgage  and Housing administration.  The tenders were passed to  Arne Petzhold, the architect,  for study and he* will recommend to the Kiwanis the next  step  they should  take  passed in open meeting and  was a record kept? If so, what  does the record show?  "4. If council passed a res--"  olution, did council have the  authority to pass such a resolution on a matter -which is  ���outside their jurisdiction as  location C is entirely outside  the boundaries of the village?  "5. Did all persons Who  went with the mayor on his  ���trips to Victoria, hold elected  or appointed office with the  municipality, were they under  formal contract as consultants?  If any person not so qualified  went with the mayor, did this  person take part or was present in the discussions with any  minister or official about highway location or cut-offs? If so,  what was this person's interest  or involvement?  "The actions of Mayor Peterson and his group in this whole  affair have led to much speculation and rumor as to the  motives of these people. We  call upon Mr. Peterson for his  stand on .this matter as we  have never had more than passive emotional excuses for his  support of route A.  "On behalf of the ratepayers  -we represent and whose welfare and aspirations is our sole  concern we ask the board to  make every effort dn putting a  stop to all these secret deals  and apparent 'conflict of interest' situations."  The above letter, complete,  was also sent to Hon. Dan  Campbell with the accompanying note:  ���'Dear Sir: Enclosed is a copy  of a letter submitted:^fcq ; ttie  Sunshine Coast Regional District seeking clarification of  Some actions taken by the  mayor of Gibsons.  "As some of these actions  ���would seem to contravene the  Municipal Act, we wish to  present this letter for your information pending an explanation of these matters.  ���Area E Planning Commission,  Sunshine Coast  Regional  District.  R. Derby, President.  James Gurney, secretary.  (At Tuesday night's Gibsons  council meeting Mayor Walter  Peterson said a lot of false,  statements Were made at this  meeting in, referring to the  value of the watershed to the  village. He added that other  statements were also incorrect.  As regards trips to Victoria,  the mayor said there was nothing secret about the one trip  that was made. Aid. Charles  Mandelkau wondered about  what responsibility the protestors had to the village or  even in the Regional District.'  A recapitulation of events  .going back to June follows so  readers can have some understanding of the course of events:  A special meeting of the Regional board was held Thurs..  May 11, at which the board  voted for Route C with Mayors  Peterson and Lang voting  against, along with Director  Hubert Slade who maintained  he did not know what it was ���  all about.  In a letter to a private, individual early in June the  chief property negotiator for  the highways* department  Wrote that "we are shortly to  meet with various authorities  concerned and it is hoped by  the end of June to know where  the route will finally go. It appears quite probably that your  property will not be affected."  (Later deveopments reversed  that and the property is now  affected.)  The highways department  was informed of this. Replying  the department wrote back  in late June that in view of the  Regional board's recommenda  tion for Route C "we shall arrange to meet with the municipality (Gibsons) to discuss  the project so that design can  proceed."  The letter urged the land  owner to check again about  July 1.  In the meantime Mayor' Peterson . - according to reports,  with others not on the municipal council, visi'ted Victoria  officials.  Next a special meeting was  called July 11 by Dick Derby,  chairman of Regional Area E  planning commission from  which by letter, Mrs. Dawson  was told' that "It is with the  greatest astonishment we now  receive new reports that Mayor Peterson and his group recently took two trips to Victoria not to discuss the proposed cutoffs -with the highways department, but allegedly obtained from you an assurance that the highway will  not be located Where the Regional District at the behest of  the people requested at to be  and where the highways department agreed to locate it."  Mrs.' Dawfeon's reply follows.  (Continued on Page 10)   ,  drain costs  A department of highways  request- for Gibsons municipality to pay half the cost of  the storm drains on the"> bigh-  iwe^'ini ifrp/nt^i -of {vElp^initone  school drew: comment 5 from  Mayor Walter Peterson that a  previous arrangement w|ais for  the department to lay the drain  and the municipality to. con-  ' struct sidewalks over them.  The mayor argued the village could not afford to pay for  the sidewaOks and half the  drain cost. Budget allotment  did. not cover such expense.  Six weeks ago Hon. Isabel  Dawson reported to the Coast  News that the work would be  done at a cost of $8,000 with a  sharing of the cost split $4,00a  by the municipality and $4,000  by the department. The subject was tabled for further  enquiries.  Gibsons TOPS branch 578  wrote council to cancel its  use of the municipal wharf  during the big fish derby.  Mayor Peterson decided; that  there would be enough, people  around who would need some  food service and if they want  to have a booth on the bank  premises council would be  happy to see it. The desire to  give up its chance was due to  a misunderstanding. Gibsons  Athletic Association Will 'have  a concession on the wharf as  well .as the Kiwanis club.  Council received a five year  lease from the provincial lands  branch covering the almost  five acres of parkland close to  Twilight Theatre. Council was  informed one month ago it was  to obtain the land for its use.  The lease can be renewed at  the end of each five year period. Aid. Winston Robinson'  promoted the idea of a committee to explore uses of the  land. The mayor agreed.  Complaints over lack of park  ing space in the village drew  from the mayor that due to  the attitude of the< public there  was little council could do.  The matter came out wthen a  complaint arose over heavy  CBC Beachcomber traffic.  29 CRIB HAND  Young Dennis Hostland . of  North Road, playing crib with  his grandfather came up with  a 29 hand.

Peterson's Highway?  Last Thursday night's meeting of the Regional board had  before at a letter from Regional Area E planning commission,  protesting actions of Mayor Walter Peterson of Gibsons in Victoria claiming he wants the highways department to revert 'to  the original traffic route A from Langdale, skirting the top part  of the village between Reid Road and the present Sunshine  Coast Highway.  The letter containing the allegation '(See Page One) was  read throughout and when it came Cime for discussion, Chairman Harry Almond decided that as the! letter was largely rumor he promptly sought a motion to seek further information.  This appeared startling in effect because there have been  times when the board has debated considerably on a subject  which did not have any more factual inforimation than did the  issue before it. HoWever the board decided to te_-ni_nate discussion so that was that.  In 'this particular instance we have two mayors on the  board, Mayor Peterson and Ben Lang of Sechelt, who (have been  continuously opposed to Route C (the Hydro line route). Their  main contention as expressed at the meeting was that the Regional board had the same chance to get maps of the original  Route A as did Mayor Peterson. However this can hardly be  called basic fact because the Regional Board's first intimation  of the proposed road was when the highways department presented it with ah accomplished fact, a map; of the proposed  route. Before that time, the boardi had tried, unsuccessfully to  obtain information about what was going on.  This, occurred one year ago. At that time there was considerable alarm among residents in that area, over the breakdown  of a community area which was the best available land on  which to build henries. The road would! run right through it  tying in With Russell Road at the western end. A public meeting protested in no uncertain terms about the location. This  meeting was to have been a session with a few people involved,  in the actual site of the road1 HoWever it wlas changed to an  open meeting, moved from the naimicipal hall owing to the size  of the crowd and carried on in the Health (Centre hall, with .80  people present.  Following this petitions were broadcast as far as Pender  Harbour and something like 1,500 names were obtained opposing  Route A.  Recent developments gave those people some hope that  Route C would be the choice. There were indications of progress  in this direction. HoWever towards the end' of July this hope  appeared to be blasted This appeared to be obvious in the letter to the board from the Area E planning commission as the  result of. Mayor Peterson's trips to Victoria.  The battle involves the municipaliiy of Gibsons and the  Reglional board of which Mayors Peterson and Lang are members with votes which allow them, to oppose Regional problems yet the Regional board must keep its hands off Gibsons.  This vote system is complicated and has never been used.  IWhile the argument over the location of the highway has  been going on, the Coast News, like all good newspapers, has  given both sides the sight to express themselves in its news  pages. Opponents of Route A have taken advantage of this but  Mayor Peterson has avoided giving reasons, beyond isolated  remarks, leaving the public without clearcut knowledge of the  mayor's objectives. ' ,  The news columns still remain wide open to both sides and  if the mayor desires to offer a definite outline covering his reasons for wanting Route A, our columns are wide open to hirn.  In assessing the situation one should also refer to the minutes of the July 18 Gibsons council meeting which passed, the  motion "Moved by Aid. Mandelkau, seconded by Aid. Hume  that a letter be sent to the departmen of highways requesting  the date they wi1! be starting the relocation of Highway 101 and  a copy be sent to the Hon. Isabel Dawson."'  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  F. A. Reyburn from Burnaby was selected out of 82  applicants for the Regional  board post oi building inspector.  Gibsons council chooses the  Dayton report for a water supply from Chapman Creek rather than the Bullock report  using Langdale Creek as a  base supply. \  July "weather provided four  days with rain totalling 1.37  inahes and a high temperature  of 82 with a mean average of  62.  10 YEARS AGO  Gibsons and Area Pollution  organization asks the provincial government to form district garbage and disposal service.

The loss was estimated,  at $60,000.  15 YEARS AGO  Airport donations are such  that Elphinstone Aero Club  members feel certain enough  will be raised for its share of  costs.  A crowfd of 400 persons  watched jalopy races Sunday  at a track in West Sechelt.

Gibsons Kinsmen club received a 70 ft. covered table  from Union Steamships Ltd.  to place in Kinsmen Park.  Port Mellon people complain  the construction of the road to  . Port Mellon is being achieved  at an exasperatingly slow pace.  On Easter Sunday, a year  ago, early in the morning, I  m'et Tricia on Savary ibeach.  We had become acquainted the  previous summer, and _n the  course of our present conversation Tricia admitted to having a problem. I offered my  professional assistance, and- she  told me that she had been born  on Easter Sunday, "but it  moved round a bit." That  morning she was six, but ber  birthday was to be honored in  Nortth Vancouver on the day  of the month, the 16th-  I told her that my son and I  had for years had wond'erful  Easter Sundays at Savary, and  that next Easter Sundlay we  would have a Savary. birthday  party for her. This produced  imanediate, happy and surprising results. She went up over  ���the bank and returned with a  chocolate egg in one hand, and  a miniature bottle of De-war's-  Scotch whisky in the other,  and 'the next day her mother  told me that Tricda wouldi like  to Wave me for a grandfather,  and that is what I 'am.  The long w_nter months  passed and Easter 1972 beckoned to Savary. Very adequate  provision had been made for  Tricia's seventh birthday, but  Rabbit's friends and relations  got wind of these, and decided  to get in on the dieal. So it hap  pened that on Good Friday  morning Willie appeared at  Hopkins, with wife Wendy, son  Glen, daughter Laura, dog  Sheeba, and Siamese cat, Kit-  ���ten-kitten, and in another car,  daughter Robbin and her Husband!' Keviin, and on their car  one of ithose rubber boats of  the type that Lord Ranulph.  used to run the Fraser canyons.  Willies' Volkswagen bus was  filled 'to the roof, and dfc made  a full load for the water taxi  to "the near end of the island  where _he is3)and truck awaited  uis. Wie had left Kevin a^^L  Robbin to inflate their rubber  boat, and shortly after we got  to the house, they appeared  round Indian Point at a rate  of knots, safe amd sound.  There had] been no vandalism during the -woriter, but  there were quite a feW tall,  ���thin 'trees broken off half .way  up, the possible explanation  being that they got ; loaded  with snow, which got wet and  froze, then' came a windJStorm.  The benign fai-rues Who Have  Savary in their care had done  ���their part, for the light, water  and fridge clicked on as if they  had been turned off the night  before.  It had been a rainy trip up, ?  but by the time we reached the  house,  the usual blue hole in ,  the Savary sky had opened for  us,  and lit was soon  dry and ;  windy.    Next    morning   there ?  was a windstorm, which made  if difficult to get out  of the  'house, but inside It was warm  sand    coanfortabie.    It    looked  bleak for:Easter Sunday, but  iSundlay morning was just perfect,   sunny,   Windless,   and  a  sea whiich  only B.C.  can  display.  So we had Tricia's party in  the afternoon. We had spoken  to her paren'ts, but it was a  surprise" for that little lady.  There was the Irish cake, suitably adorned with candles, and  a luscious array of goodltes  from Grandma Thomson. Ti.-  cia's moither, not exactly aware  of the extent of the preparations, brought a tall, dark cho- ���  oolate cake, - knowing the ad-i  dictions of Willie and myself, f  ' Tricia has a talent for making pictures, and during our  two years' relationship, I aim  occasionally favored with creations of her art, usually of a  small, , fair girl and a large  black dog, done with crayons  on wrapping paper. I commis-  siionJed Wendy, my daughter-  iri-llaw, to get Tricda the proper  equipment for smarting a young  arftjstt in -the right path.  Wendy, who is knowledgeable dn these matters, her mother   having, taught   painting  and her sister one of our artists i  went over to Vancouver ito the  largest artists' supply house in  the city, and landed there on a  . quiet morning, when there was  not much doing, and explained  the purpose of her visit., The  principalis and staff entered  into the spirit of the thing, and  Wendy came away with a large  flat carton, with just everything in paints, paper, pastels  and so forth' heeded, and one  salesman- ��� added two extra  brushes, as Tricia has two brothers. (Wendy obviously got a  lot for the .money, and maybe  it Was ��� excellent public relations.  Shortly after the end of the  party, Willie went along the  shore to cult loose a big tree  which had fallen across a  neighbor's roof, and I went  with ___m. As we passed in  front of Tricia's cottage we  found her on the front verandah, busy with her new equipment, making a picture of the  waiterfront, with a setting sun,  a little blonde and a black animal, which she said was a rabbit. I have re_ent_y received  this work, signed by the artist.  Long ago, as a small boy in  Beacon Hill park, in Victoria*,  I used to wlalteh Emily Carr at  work, but never got anything  signed by her, but this time, I  may be in on the ground floor.  The nexlt day, like the Sunday, was perfect, and invited,  the household to go visiting,  and it so happened, that I was  left   to   baby-sit   my   grand-  |-laugher Laura, aged 2% years.  ���We got along famously and in  course of our i^ispection of the  house we'oame across a basket, full of shells, toys, marine  curiosities, inoliiding a small  dried star-fish. LplTa, as she  calls herself, shouted "Toys!"  and dumped the basket on the  rug in front of (the chesterfield  on Which I was sittanig, Then  she went to *he front veran-.  dah, and made a noise like a  imiiniiiiirtiititminwi  THE  UMSOCRED  MIKE BLANEY  YOUR PROVINCIAL  LIBERAL CANDIDATE  sea-guHl.

COAST  With every wage and price  increase, there is increased  pressure in Canada for government imposed wage and  price  controls.  We may be driven to this  desperate measure. If so, it  will be a sorry day for Canada and one we "will live to  long regret when a new and  immensely powerful bureaucracy descends upon the citizenry, ordering their lives and  poking into their private affairs to a degree which Canadians would accept only under  ���the extraordinary conditions of  war.

BOX  375,  WHARF   STREET,   SECHELT  CHILCOTIN  a few months, a year or" even  two ytars, cannot serve to suppress wage and price increases. It merely delays them. Business and labor may be curbed  for the life of tfae control period, but both can look forward  to the magic date when controls cease and all the pent-up  pressures for more money are  again loosed.  nl this feeling fo fear and  distaste for wage and price  control, I had hardly expected  to find myself in the company  of one of the noteld conservatives of the United States, but  so it seems to be.  The following quotations are  from a speech of the late Republican Senator Robert A.  Taff of Taft-Hartley bill fame.  They were made during the  1950s.  "If we impose compulsory  arbitration, or if we give the  government power to fix wages at which men must work  for another year or for two  years to comie, I doi not see  how in the end-we can escape  a collective economy.  "If we give 'the government  power to fix wages, I do not  see how we can take from the  government the power to fix  prices; and if the government  fixes wages and prices, we  soon reach the point where all  industry is under government  control, and -finally there is a  complete socialization of our  economy.  "I feel yery strongly that so  far as possible we should avoid  any system which attempts to  give to the government this  power finally to fix 'thie wages  of any man.   ��� ' -  "Can we dos o constitutionally? Can we say to all the  people of the United States,  'You mus work at wages fixed  by the  government'?  "I think it is a long step  from freedom and a long step  from a free economy to give  the government such a right.  ���'-".. .Today people seem to .  think that all that is necessary  to do is to forbid, strikes, fix  wages, and compel men to  continue working, withput consideration of. the human anc^  constitutional problems involved in that process..."  Of course, if Senator Taft  were still alive and active in  the U.S. Senate today, it niight  be that hie would have been  driven o the conclusion that  such curbs upon freedom are  essential. Even as I and other  members of Canada's 28th Parliament may be so driven. But  one cannot escape the. ominous  tone of this American senator's words, or fail to wonder  how price and wage controls  would look in hJindsig-.t, two  or three years after their introduction^ "  ROYAL BANK  APPOINTMENT  Your Horoscope  Horoscope for the next week  By TRENT VARRO  ARIES - March 21 to April 20  This, is a time for self-analysis  Don't be too critical of yourself, nobody's perfect.

At Your Service  THE  UNSOCRED  MIKE BLANEY  YOUR PROVINCIAL  LIBERAL CANDIDATE  One of the /most suitable  months in which to make salads is August. Our fresh Canadian vegetables are coming to  us from nature's bountiful gardens and the selection of salad  ingredients is almost endless.  In head form, Iceberg leit- *  tuce is the most easily recognized, with its crisp, medium-  green outer leaves and paler  ones inside. Less familiar are  its cousins, Boston and Ro-  maine lettuce.  Boston lettuce has a loose  head with lieaves looking almost as if they had* been waxed. -Jomaine lettuce, a little  fancier still, has an elongated  head with straight, coarse, dark  green outer leaves and usually  inner ones that are paler and  thicker. I.eaf lettuce is -also a  cousin, although the leaves axe  not held in head form. The  leaves are fan-shaped, curled  and bright green in color.  Next   comes   curly   Endive,  which is sometimes known as  Chicory. It can be recognized  by the narrow, finieiy ���divided,  curly leaves clustered together  on a pale center. Take it easy  when adding this green to a  salad ��� it has a slightly bitter taste! Escatfole has broad,  ruffled leaves with thick .midribs, stretching out from a -well  bleached center.  One must not forget Spinach,  well known' with its dark  green, slightly crinkly leaves.  The tender leaves, with the  stems removed axe an. excellent addition to salad's because  of their different texture. *  To ensure that these salad  greens Stay fresh after purchase, care must be taken '-in  storing them. Rinse them well  in cold water, remove the core  from head lettuce and allow  the greens to drain well. Remove any wilted or discolored  leaves. Store in a tightly closed   -plastic   bag   or   container,  But some prefer good beefsteak  A beef steak is mighty fine  eating, any time, any place.  But when the steak is barbecued out-of-doors and comes  sizzling hot from the grill,  there is just nothing to compare with it.  It is more important, however, to choose the right cut of  meat for barbecuing, or else  you may be disappointed. The  tender steaks from the loin  and rib sections such as sirloin  porterhouse, wing, club and  rib give, the best results. Top  round is fine if cooked to rare  or medium doneness.  Count on one steak apiece  when you buy club, wing or T-  Bone. A porterhouse or sirloin  steak will serve several people,  for example a 2 inch sirloin  serves about 6. If you are unsure what to buy when looking for just the right steak to  barbecue, ask the meat man  for advice.  There's more to barbecuing  a steak than just placing it on  the grill over the coals. The  method of cooking, the distance from, the coals, cooking  time and the addition of sauces  will all affect the result you  get with that perfect steak  you have just purchased. .

Snip the fat edge of the  meat to prevent curling during  cooking. Season the meat and  marinate it, if desired, before  placing it on the. grill. Barbecue the meat about 5 inches  from the coals and turn it only:  once during cooking .,  The  following   timetable   is '  only   a   guide.

Ralph R. Loffmark, Minister of Health Services and  Hospital Insurance, Victoria.  "Dear M'r. Loffmark: Ever  since 1968 this association ihas  been urging you to. establish a  properly equipped medical  clinic at Pender Harbour. Although you have shown interest' front, time to time a_w_ys  there seemed to be obstacles  in the way. When BCHIS told  us the financial situation did  not permit the construction of*  a clinic we offered to build  and equip the clinic - ourselves  provided BCHIS would operate it.  Then on Nov. 21, ������ 197.1, at a  special general meeting of the  Pender Harbour and District'  Ratepayers . association with  over 300 members and guests'  in attendance you did state  that you "would do everything  in your power to see that Pender Harbour got a medical  clinic. When, questioned regarding the type of structure  and e-quiptoent required for  such a clinic you made it clear  that the clinic would have to  ���be constructed to proper requirements and that it would  have to be completely equipped. You did indicate that you  would have to discuss the matter with the officials of BCHIS  and the Regional Hospital  /board. We know that to - date  you have not discussed this  matter with the Regdanal Hospital board.  On March 3, 1972, the press  reported that you had announced an the legislature the  formation of the Medical Man-  St. Pierre off  on China visit  Paul St. Pierre, MP. will  visit China in August. The  Coast Chiicotin member, who  is parliamentary secretary to  External A <f f a i r s Minister  Sharp, will be one of the offi-  cial party visiting Peking prior  to the opening of the Dig Canadian  trade- fair-  The invitation "to" External  Affairs Minister Sharp was extended by the Chinese foreign  ministry. Approximate dates  for the visit are August 11 to  August 24. The itinerary is not  yet known. The Canadians will  probably travel by Canadian  Armed Forces plane.  About 500 'Canadian business  mien, representing about 200  firms, will participate in the  Canadian trade fair at Peking,  which is expected to be the  largest solo fair sponsored by  any foreign country since the  formation of the Chinese -People's Republic.

Although we -have repeatedly requested the secretary of the committee to arrange for this meeting it has  not been done.  On June 27, 1972, ,_he directors of this association greatly  concerned by the delay, wrote  to you restating the urgent  need of this clinic and asking  for a report of progress. Your  reply of July 6, 1972, in our  opindon, was extremely offen  sive when you merely stated  that you had received our letter and noted its contents. Also on June 27, 1972, we wrote  to the secretary of Medical  Manpower requesting an opportunity to discuss the matter -with themv They replied  that they had been instructed  to suspetmd their lefforts in this  matter as the department -was  carrying on discussions with a  Vancouver* doctor wiho was interested in establishing in Pender Harbour.  The Peninsula Times of July  5, 1972, reports an interview  you gaive them on the subject  of the proposed medical clinic  at Pender Harbour and you  are quoted ag having said that  there is no intention: of establishing a government doctor  and clinic and that the require-  mtnts of the clinic and its location wlilli be entirely at the  discretion of the doctor.  This being the case it appears that you have abandoned  the idea of the esta'bishment of  a properly constructed and  properly equipped medical  clinic at Pender Harbour. You  have turned this much needed  and vital facility over to private interests to be developed  as they see fit. To provide  what facility and equipment  they may choose ��� of operating it upon such days and  hours as they see fit ��� and to  close it down when it serves  their purpose.  Mr. Lciffmarik, we have devoted years of effort to having  a properly equipped, medical  clinic establisihed at Pender  Harbour and operated by BC  HIS. The Regional Hospital  board has also urged you to  establish such a clinic.  It is.evident from your press  interview that you have failed  us in 'this matter and that you  are playing politics with the  'lives of the people of the Pender Harbour and Egmont district.  Coast News, Aug. 2, 1972.      f  [We believe your behavior in  this instance is an outrage and  an abuse of your responsibility  at a (minister of the Crown. We  demand that you keep faith  with us and establish a properly constructed fully .quipped Medical Clinic.  ���Board of Directors,  Pender Harbour and District Ratepayers Assn.

CLEARANCE  s  A  E  k OHE-THIRD TO OH.-HALf OFF  ON All SUMMER SHOES  Start-no WED., AUGUST 2  SELF-SERVICE  WigarcTs Shoe Store  Editor: As a member of Electoral Area E advisory committee I attended the general  monthly meeting of the Regional board July 27. We had  forwarded a letter prior to the  meeting requesting the assistance of the board in having  questions answered pertinent  to -what we consider a serious  matter ��� the location of the  Highway 101 cutoff.  I feel compelled to write  protesting the way in which  the meeting involving this issue was handled toy Chairman  Harry Almond.  As Mayor Peterson has been  in the habit' of giving various  adamant opposition to the upper route C and his dogged  {support of route A, ranging  from land drainage, to water  shed problems and access  roads, we felt that as the mayor sits on the board as a director we could possibly get a  'Straight answer from Mr. Peterson as to his reasons1 for trying to block a route outside  the village.  This was not to be the case,  however, as Chairman Almond  stated that hie felt no useful  purpose would be served by  going into the matter.  To say that this was a sur-  ���prise would be an understatement indeed, and can only be  described in my view as a  brush off of a situation which  is of grave concern to ai large  number of people, and Mr.jPe-:  terson was let off the hook by  Mr. Almond's squashing of the;  whole affair.  This state of affairs can only.  "leave most of us asking our-1  selves Why with a capital ?  ���BEATRICE SKELLETT.     '  It's anyone's guess what all  these hundreds of people will  do when they get into the village but the. Town Dad feels  that they must be channelled  down the main street of the  village to spend their wealth.  I hope he will realize that it  - Will take more than a one--way  street to ��� attract the tourists  as the recreation facilities that  he has to offer in his village  don't even suffice for the local  residents, 'let alone the discriminating visitors from elsewhere.  ���MRS. P. GURNEY.  Editor: It is imost comforting to know that the: Mayor  of Gibsons is so deeply ��� concerned about the welfare of  both the people in and out of  the village.  It seems as the merchants of  ���Gibsons will never have to  fear Port Mellon closing down  (as their informative mayor  stated at the last Regional  meeting, "it might any -day.")  as Mr. Peterson has great plans  for their tourist trade.  Editor: An internationally  known Evangelist once said  he opened a large meeting with  these three words: "Stop playing church," This practice is  unfortunately true of many of  our lonqhodox churches but'  does not apply to Evangelicals  or Bible believing fellowships.  An account appears in the  Canadian 0_*urchman, the Topic and in the Gibsons paper  about a group oif Anglicans  putting on a fast which seemed  to be for money raising purposes .'However, let it be said  that a period of genuine spiritual falsting is always accompanied by much fervent prayer,'silence and deep Christian  Fellowship. It is done by  Christian bodies to help towards the bringing about of a  much needed revival.  Actually any of us can go  without three meals in one  ���day, have a night's sleep and  the 24 hours are up.  This 24-hour mealiess period  is nothing else but a form of  playing church, and in so  many churches it is practiced  today in forms such as church  teas, dinners, picnics, bazaars,  and even in some churches,  bingo, also playing ceremonial  with military and naval flags  which Gocl disdains.  Only by the way of complete evangelization and personal re-birth in Christ can  our churches become what  they were intended to be, preparatory schools^ for the Kingdom of Heaven.  ���W.A.N.

Editor: May we make an appeal to your readers: for some  missing documents?   ,  The Historical Branch of the  City of Edmonton' parks and  recreation department has  been researching information  about the Hudson's Bay Company Fort Edmonton as it wets  during the 1840s, in preparation for an authentic reconstruction of the post. Much of  our knowledge of this fort in  the 19th' century is derived  from Fort Edmonton Jpurnlals  of Daily Occurences which axe  now in he Hudson's Bay Company Archives. Unfortunately,  all of the Journals between, the  years 1834 and 1854 are missing, but it is possible, that they  still exist somewhere, perhaps  in a private collection.  If any readers have information    concerning    the    where  abouts of these missing journals, we would sincerely appreciate healing from them at  The Historical Exhibits Building, 10105-112 St., Edmonton, Alberta, T5G 0H1.  ���D.

D. THOMAS & CO.  UPHOLSTERY  Point of Law  (By a Practicing Lawyer  Copyright)  Question 1: What is plea  bargaining?  Question 2: I was charged!  with breaking and entry and I  wan. tto cop a plea of. theft with,  the prosecutor. How do I do  this?  Question 3: I got charged,  with assault with a dangerous  weapon. How do I cop out with  i_h_ police to a charge of common assault?  Question 4: Is plea bargaining against the Jaw?  Plea ibargaining (or copping  a plea or ooppa__g out) consists  of. an accused person charged  with a criminal offence m__*-_i__g  an agreement with the prosecutor to plead guilty to a lesser  offence, if the prosecutor -wiU  apply to the court to have the  Mrst ���charge dropped. The prosecutor is the person* (generally a lawyer) acting for the  .crown. He has (in general) in  the first instance, "the d_scr_-  tlion as to what charge should  be laid. The police do not decide this.  Once ithe charge is laid the  prosecutor cannot drop the  change. Only the count: can do  this. Plea 'bargaining is common in many states in the  U.S.A. In the United States  crime is a subject for state* law.  There are, of course, federal  crimeis as well. In Canada  crime is a subject for federal  law, and is thus uniform across  the country. Each state in the  United States has different  criminaiK laws. IWfe believe plea  bargaininig is illegal in some  states.  In the opinion of the writer  plea bargaining is a pernicious  practice. It is not really fair  to anyone. If there is evidence  enough to warrant an accused  being; tried on a* ceaiain charge  he should be tried on that  charge ��� or two ,or more)  charges in the alternative.  Some lesser defences are included in greater defences, for  example, manslaughter is an.  included offence1 to murder inmost cases.  Plea  bargaining is  rare in,  Canada, but does occur under-  some circumstances. The sut>-  jedt is a comiplicatted one and  it may be that certain procedural reforms are necessary in  our system- of the administration of criminal justice in order  ,to claxiiify whew it wall be allowed (if at all) and when alternative charges and included  offences are appropriate.
