Phone 886-2622  Volume 26  Number 9, February 28, 1973.  10c per copy  Teacher situatidii  j*-'**i<..,*'ik':  Information garnered by the  Coast News following Tuesday  night's meeting of the Sechelt  Teachers'   Association  reveals  that Mrs. Virginia Douglas and  Mike Seymour were reinstated  as members of the executive.  A third member,  Ian Jacobs,  was replaced. \ "  The meeting argued a rules  of order point that the whole  STA membership of 108 should  vote on rescinding a motion  of censure against three of the  executive. However the vote  of 28 to 14 from an attendance  of GO settled the issue.  Discussing   the   disturbance  involving the school board and  Gibsons    Elementary    school  teachers,    Superintendent    of  Schools R. R. Hanna informed  ; the board at last week's Thursday meeting that his talk with  teachers to  hear  the board's  stand in the dispute was received without comment.

"The STA (BCTF) has consistently' petitioned the school  board to hire more qualified  teachers to help alleviate this  situation since the minister of  education had made funds available to school districts for  this purpose, but the board appeared , reluctant to request  provincial help. Other school  boards throughout the province  represent Roberts Creek in the  Sea Cavalcade at Gibsons later  in the season, if a suitable  candidate can be found.  It was also decided to support the Halfmooh Bay Ratepayers Association protest  against the rerassignment of  water lease in Secret Cove to  the Royal Vancouver Yacht  Club.

It was not in-  terided that this should embracej ari immediate general upgrading of educational programs in all school districts,  desirable as the boards may  deeni this to be. This upgrad-  i ing of educational programs  must of necessity be carried  out^inan orderly manner and  the requirements iri each school  district must therefore be carefully considered and evaluated  by each board iri establishing  priorities in budgeting for operating expenses in 1973 and  subsequent years.

The  only authorization was an over  run of the 11972' budget which  would become an approved additional cost in the 1973 bud-  The.

A'    That has  changed  and the  Regional board is now being  approached instead of municipal councils. Up to the present  the board has been reluctant to  enter the field of grants.  Axi appeal for the grant was  made by Mike OvenaH; regional co-ordinator of tourism for  -.Southwestern B.C. which includes the Mainland Southwest  Tourist, association .representing" 23 municipal councils from  Powell River to Hope.

The first step in this direction was to pass a 'motion in  favor of prohibiting further  subdivision into lots smaller  than 18,000 square feet. Several members voiced opposition but the majority were in  favor. Orie rriember said if  property is allowed to be divided into' small lots the sub-  sequent increase in population  will necessitate some sort of  industry to support it and we  would thus run the risk of  having a percentage of the  population on welfare in times  of industrial layoff.

Should the Regional District board assume the responsibility for financing tourism for the Sunshine Coast? What raises  this question is the request from Mainland Southwest Tourist  Association, financed in part by the provincial government, for  a grant to help pay for the Sunshine Coast booklet distributed  far and wide this summer.  Total cost of the booklet is $6,500 for 20,000 copies; The  provincial government contributes $3,000 and the area $3,000  plus $500 from businessmen iri the form of cash paid for advertising space. This is repeated 13 times over with booklets covering the 13 regions of the province.  Perhaps the Sunshine Coast history of tourism publicity  is worth recalling. Before the Sunshine Coast Tourist Association appeared such publicity was on an individual basis. With'  the adyent of an area-wide association something was done but  not in too serious a manner. Along came Black Ball Ferries which  had organizing ability from its ventures south of the border.  Black Ball people set up a public relations-arrangement  which was beneficial to the area at not too large a cost. This  was working quite nicely when the Bennett government took  over Black Ball. This upset the good arrangement with Black  Ball Ferries.  With the aid of public relations officials who had observed  Black Ball's operations there emerged from governmental  minds a plan which was the start of what we are experiencing  today��� with some changes.  ^ Under the plan operating for the last three years, the booklet appeared with the aid of government, municipal and public  money. Gibsons arid Sechelt contributed towards last year's  booklet. This year there has been a variation which calls for  the area government ���r the Regional District board ��� to replace the two municipalities who each contributed $500, plus  Chambers of Commerce help along with area merchants.  If the: Regional board feels it should take over the financing of the booklet for the whole area, it should get from the  provincial government money set aside for tourism just as Gibsons and Sechelt received. If there is cash available for this purpose to be handed out to cities, towns and villages, why not Regional boards?  The Coast News tias handled a fairly large amount of the  area's efforts at publicity and has some of its own that it hands  out freely. While we do not desire to wisfli any more responsibility on the Regional District board we think it should be the  vehicle through which such funds should be handled.  A matter of judgment  You can't judge a sausage by the look of its skin;  Nor a book by its cover we say  But when it comes to judging each other  We make that mistake every day!  Wethink we don't do it! We think that we're fair!  Our intentions are usually good;  But the first impression sticks in the mind,  Whether or not it should.  If a person looks worn on the outside  We label him "old" and that's that,  When he may be sixteen on the inside  With mentality lithe as a cat.  And What if his skin's black, or yellow?  (Think back to the sausage again)  We grant to the sausage a priviledge  We don't give to our fellow men!

Your income tax  ARTICLE 8  By the Institute of Chartered  Accountants of BC  The new Income Tax Act  contains a number of provisions which have a. direct effect upon real estate investment and, in particular, the  deductions available to taxpayers investing in real estate.  Provisions have been introduced t0 prohibit the deduction of property taxes and interest paid in respect of unproductive land and to limit  capital cost allowances (depreciation) in respect of rental buildings which may be  deducted in computing income  Property taxes and interest  paid in respect of the acquisition of unproductive land are  not generally deductable if the  land is not used in a business  or if the land does not represent  inventory of a business.  The intent of this provision  is to limit the deduction of  amounts in computing ordinary income where the income which may arise in respect of the property would represent a capital gain Of  which only one-naif would be  included in income.  In effect, the non-deductible  exenses will form part of the  cost; of the property for the  purposes of computing any  capital gain.  If the land produces income,  then the property taxes and  interest paid may be deducted  to the extent of that income.  Regulations have been issued which preclude the deduction of capital cost allowances  in an amount in excess of the  taxpayer's income from all of  his rental buildings.  This (means that where  there is sufficient depreciation  available, the taxpayer may  reduce his rental income to  zero, but he may not increase  capital cost allowances (up to  the maximum allowable a-  mount) to create a loss from  rental properties and deduct  this loss in computing his income from other sources in the  year, such as employment income or business income.  Under the former act, .taxpayers in high tax brackets  would utilize the capital cost  allowance provisions t0 defer  tax on income from a business  for example, through the  claiming of capital cost allowance losses. This avenue has  been closed as; far as rental  buildings   are  concerned.  At this time, the regulations  UBC OPEN HOUSE  More than $30,000,000 worth  of new buildings will be open  tQ the public as part of the  University of British Columbia's triennial Open House on  March 2 and 3. In addition to  new facilities, of course, there  will be displays and demostra-  tions by students and faculty  members in each of UBC's 12  Faculties which, in turn, are  made up of some '100 Departments. Add to this the demonstrations that will be put on  by a riiyriad 6f student clubs  which specialize in everything  from, -skydiving to musical  comedy and it all adds up to  a giant smorgasbord of activity, both intellectual and non-  intelectual.  restricting depreciation claims  which create losses deductible  in computing other income  are applicable- only to rental  buildings.  The restrictions do not apply  t0 other types of depreciable  property such as equipment,  machinery, etc. Accordingly,  investment in depreciables  other than rental buildings  may represent an attractive  alternative to rental buildings.  In addition, where the portion of the purchase price of  rental property applicable to  the building is $50,000 or more  the building must be placed  in a separate depreciation  class.  The effect of this separation into different classes is  to ensure that depreciation  will be recaptured in respect  of each." building when that  building is sold..  In the past, the tax on income arising on the sale of a  building because of recaptured  depreciation could be deferred  through the purchase of another building in the same taxa  tion:,--.year.      -      -' , .' ���������  T^h'e cost of the new building  would be reduced by the  amount of recapture in respect  of the old building and in .  most cases, np income would  arise in that year. This is no  longer possible under the new  act in respect of rental buildings which cost $50,000 or  more.  Although the foregoing provisions may increase the cost  of holding real property for  investment purposes, the utili  zation of depreciation to defer  taxation will continue. Depreciation may be utilized t0 reduce rental income to zero.  Accordingly* where a taxpayer owns rental buildings  which return him a net income  after depreciation, he could  purchase another building  with the intention of reducing  present rental income to zero.  The scope of the deferral  through depreciation claims  has been considerably reduced  but there still may exist a  measure of deferral through  the purchase of depreciable  buildings where the purchaser  owns other rental buildings.  In a joint press release, representatives of school boards  and municipal councils in B.C.  reached agreement to ask for  legislative changes allowing  for joint construction and operation of community facilities  on school property.  At its second meeting this  year, the liasion committee of  the Union of BC. Municipalities and the B.C. School Trustees Association said new legislation should allow school  boards and municipal councils permissive powers to develop such joint facilities to  Buit the particular needs of  their communities.  School boards cannot now  share in the cost of constructing and operating community  facilities on school board property, even though used by  schools for- instructional purposes. The coriunittee agreed  that each group would approach their respective cabinet ministers to seek changes  in both the Public Schools Act  and the Municipal Act.  They also agreed to press  government to extend to tenants voting rights on capital  referendums. In the spring  session of the legislature, a  change in the Vancouver Char  ter allowed tenants to vote on  financial by-laws for the first  time. Both the BCSTA and  UBCM feel this right should  be extended to all tenant-electors in the province.  Other points of agreement to  emerge from the meeting comprise:  The need for improvment of  assessment practices throughout the province to end inequities  in assessments.  The need for property tax  payments by residents of mobile homes, who are living in  established communities and  using municipal facilities.  Representatives of both BCSTA and the UBCM agreed  that a further liason meeting  should be held early in 1973  when the government's legislative program is known.

Cuylits, Regional board  GdARMnffl)  REPAIRS  885-24_?l  Sechelt Jewelers  planner said in his report at  the February meeting of the  board that there have been  isolated cases where develop -  ment of land assessed as farmland has been stopped. He explained that the area between  the S-turn and the Cemetery  corner was involved.  The project the Charles  English firm has in hand concerns the development of a site  for campers, tenters and trail  ers, something badly needed  in this area, based on Coast  News experiences with continued enquiries from, visitors  seeking a place to camp.  Back of the proposition is  is the Kampgrounds of America organization which has established five or six similar  camps elsewhere. The camps  now operating in the United  States and Canada include a  swimming pool, trailer rentals,  hot food, rest rooms, hot show  ers, laundry facilities, groceries, campground supervision  and utility hookups.

KOA officials having look  ed over the area have selected  the land bordering the S Turn  running back towards the  mountain as a good site for  this type of camp. Whether  the government freeze will affect the area remains to be  seen. Farming on the Sunshine Coast has never become  a top-rank venture.  Grant surplus  may be used  Money unused in homeowner grants may soon be used to.  reduce the land charges assessed by the Regional District  board for its water system.  _ In the past the homeowner  grant was strictly for payment  on land and home improvements and what was left unused was a dead loss to the  taxpayer. Now* it was reported,  at the February Regional District board meeting, with the  land charge appearing on tax  assessments any left-over in  the homeowner grant could, be  applied to the board's land  tax.  This year the board will  send bills to all owners on the  system as before but they will  indicate that the land charges  will be collected with their  provincial property taxes. .  There are some details still  to be worked out but due to  the urgency of the matter and  with the realization that major  changes have been made, some  adjustments may be necessary  The main disadvantages to  this system is that it will not  provide the board with the  usual funds from accounts  paid early in the year immediately; following billing.  This breakthrough with access to the provincial rolls will  undoubtedly be pursued with  -interest by th�� 'board's water  and finance committees as it  opens up several alternatives  for improving and simplifying  the water billing system.  Nurses seeking  expanded role  An expanded role for  nurses in the delivery of  health care, including nursing  representation on all health  care planning bodies, is recommended in a brief presented to Dr. Richard G. Foulkes,  director of the Health Security -Program project, by the  Registered Nurses^ Association of British Columbia.  The RiNABC delegation,  headed by Margaret Neylan,  R. N., president, urged early  implementation of a proposal  for an educational program to  prepare nurses for expanded  roles in primary  care.  Mrs. Neylan said nurses presently working in expanded  roles in community settings  and remote areas are graduates of traditional programs,  who have broadened their  skills mainly through then-  own effort.  The RNABC is hopeful that  provincial funding will enable the initiation of the proposed program this year. Cost  of the program for 1973 is estimated at $72,000.  The RNABC brief also stated the need to plan for the  transfer of appropriate functions from highly skilled and  highly paid professionals to  other health workers.  y^     Your Horoscope  Horoscope for the next week  By TRENT VARRO  ARIES - March 21 to April 20  Some remarkable 'occurrence'  could change your entire outlook on life in general this  week. You may not see the  immediable importance of  this, but you can be sure it's  there!  TAURUS - April 21 to May 20  Conditions should be much  better for the sign of Taurus  than they have been for the  last week or so. There's a lot  of hard work involved, but  you will find yourself able to  cope with it.  GEMINI - MAT 21 to June 20  Business matters are pretty  certain to be better for this  week. You deserve a lot of  credit for the way you have  handled all business dealings.  Your rewards are hot far off.  CANCER - June 21 to July 21  You should be able to "breathe  easier" now, when it comes to  transportation. The adverse  aspect is gone from your chart  This does not, of course mean  that you should become care-  _���S_r  LEO - July 22 to August 21  Things look very active for  Leo right now. You might  even be so busy, that you  don't "see the woods for the  trees." Keep calm and serene,  and do first things first. Don't  . fiddle, around with unnecessary details.  VIRGO - August 22 to Sept. 21  There's a tendency right now,  to feel that "everyone is  against you." This is simply  not true. They may be jealous  of what you have accomplish-  RECORD BROKEN  Though definite figures will  not be available until later in  the year, a conservative estimate indicates tourism in British Columbia broke all previous records in 1972i. The disclosure was made by Hon.  Ernest Hall, who quoted the  $548,099,000 in the Department  of Travel Industry annual report. Mr. Hall said the total  would most likely be on "the  low side" when final figures  were obtained from Statistics  Canada, the source from which  all calculations are made.  ed,  but certanly not  "against  you!"  LIBRA  -   Sept. %% to Oct. 22  The chart for Libra is very  similar to that of Virgo. Although yor may not realize  it one day last week was probably one of the "luckiest"  days you have had. in a long  time. This may take some  understanding!  SCORPIO - Oct. 23 to Nov. 21  A lot of gain is in the stars  for Scorpi0 if you handle  things properly at this time.  There are many persons looking to you for advice and leadership. Play it sensibly!  SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 Dec 20  The signs of Libra and Leo  can help you immensely at  this time. Pay particular attention to what these individuals have to say. You have a  great deal to gain by it.  CAPRICORN - Dec. 21 Jan. 19  There's a tremendous "easing  of tension* 'entering this sign  now. A great deal of gain can  be made out of seemingly unimportant matters. 'Don't try  to "set the world on fire" all  at once. Take your time!  AQUARIUS - Jan. 20 - Feb. 18  If you are wise, it should be  "business as usual" this week.  Trying to do too much all at  one time, will only slow you  down. There should be some  tremendous gain coming to  you later on this year.  PISCES - Feb. 19 to Mar. 20  "Be silent" when it comes to  radical changes during the  next week! You'll have plenty  of time a little later to further  your aims in- life. Don't get  into arguments! Just string  along and play it cool.  (Copyright 1973 by Trent  Varro.

Tel maintains there is  insufficient telephone traffic  between Sechelt and Pender  Harbour to warrant lifting  present toll charges, the Regional District board was informed last week. The request  came as the result of Director  J. H. Tyner of Pender Harbour  appealing for board support to  have the tolls removed.  The company found that only 29 percent of phone customers made three or more calls  per month to Sechelt and there  appeared to be even less interest in the reverse direction.  To provide a nonrtoll service  an initial capital expenditure  estimated at $150,000 would be  necessary, the company said.  Further, the phone company  says the net loss of annual revenue from present charges  would jnean an additional  charge of 75c on residential  phones and $2.90 for business  customers,  COOKIE WEEK DATE SET  Girl Guide Cookie Week  takes place April 27 to May 5.

At the present time dredg  ing is being carried out at the  mouth of the Langdale Creek  adjacent to the British Columbia Ferries Terminal  of that  name.  As regards Langdale Creek,  I am very aware of the necessity of dredging which is occasioned by recent freshets  carrying material directly into the basin and mooring of  the vessels berthed at that  Terminal; Over the years the  mouth of the Langdale Creek  has undergone a fair amount  of work and disturbance to the  estuary.  At the terminal a rip-rap  diversion has been placed to  divert the creek, clear of the  basin, never-the-less the diver  sion in the opinion of Mr. Fin-  layson is inadequate in that  the material is washing and  in lieu of this he would strong  ly recommend heavy rock material and/or driven pile thus  effecting a permanent diversion and allowing this estuary  t0 regain its growth and its  ability to handle fish without  constant disturbance.  A few years ago the mouth  of the Langdale Creek was a  prime source of cutthroat  trout and salmon to run the  creek.  Still on the subject 0t Langdale Creek he pointed out that  above highway 101 the federal  dept. of Fisheries have placed  a barrier to collect debri and  prevent a washout or disturbance of culvert under the  said highway. In short he believed the culvert to be inadequate and storm damage this  season would prove this correct. Finally as the routing of  new highway from the Langdale Terminus would be engineered partially within the  basin and adjacent to Langdale Creek, we would hope  that considerable care was  taken by the engineers," he  wrote.  .  Dredging operations at  Rainy River have also removed material from the estuary  and I believe that in both  cases that the material gathered from these two creeks is  being transported for fill to  the British Columbia Ferries  Terminal at Tsawwassen.  Gibson Rod and Gun Club  These past few years, the  now the Gibson Wildlife Club  and the Lower Mainland Wild  life branch of your department  Mr. Finlayson wrote, adding  that the club has not always  been particularly happy with  the response especially from  the federal Dept. which does  not feel that our streams have  much promise and carry few  fish. This is very true, but  these are the only streams we  have and I could name a dozen others that are being violated worse then these. Should  I continue I would begin with  Chapman Creek, the only water shed with domestic potential in the Lower Sunshine  Coast being logged to its very  head   waters.  In conclusion, he wrote  that he would be much obliged if the minister would review,; all Works especially with  the Dept. of Highways to -use  the utmost care and to impress  upon the Fish and Wildlife  Branch that they use every  possible means tQ have the  streams  recognized   and   pro-  _6C_G_l  ���JP*.B: FINLAYSON.  * ���* *  Editor: Was in the dentists  office, a short time ago, and  on the wall was displayed the  following. "Due to changes in  the federal taxation system,  we regret that we cannot allow any monthly accounts. We  expect all treatment to be  paid for as it progresses.  The only exception to vthis  rule is where you are using  an official budget plan or prepaid  insurance."  I came out from the treatment room 15 minutes later  and $23 poorer, and my heart  went put to these .dedicated  public servants, who I am  sure would like t0 see all of  us with the teeth we deserve,  but due to the policy ot_that  naughty federal government,  allows the dentists to collect  100 cents on the dollar before  you leave the premises, while  any other business I-know  puts aside about 10% to coyer  follow through and collection  of accounts and bad debts.  Let's be honest about this  and cut out the "We regret"  and put- in "It is with heartfelt gratitude", or failing this,  absolve the federal government from all blame in the  good fortune of the darlings  of the drill.

Robert Williams inherited an ill-  advised decision which his department is reluctant to rescind, Mayor Ben Lang of Sechelt has asked the minister to  examine the yacht club issue  with a delegation of Regional  board members and Secret  Cove residents.  A copy of the letter he sent  the minister was read to the  Regional District monthly  meeting in its Davis Bay board  room.  Mayor Lang believes that  those granting the water lot  lease for use of the Royal Vancouver Yacht club, are not familiar with all the facts and  that the minister and his department have inherited ah ill-  advised decision.  Mri Robert Gibson obtained  a wjater lot lease in Secret  Cove.^The Regional Board then  with the co-operation of federal government agencies commenced a survey of the whole  Secret Cove area. While this  was going on Gibson's water  lot was turned over to the  Yacht club.  The mayor's letter stated  that some members of the  yacht club were very perturbed by the granting of this lease  and had asked him and other  Regional board members to  take further action, which had  been done so far without success. '"....  During the same meeting  board members were informed  the lands branch in Victoria  regretted it was not in a position to refer the assignment of  leases to Regional boards. The  director of lands said that in  view of the number of Regional Districts and the work involved, to refer assignment requests in each case would not  be possible.  Coast News, Feb. 28, 1973.      7  Point of Law  (By a Practicing Lawyer  Copyright)  Q: How long does it take to  get a judgment against someone after, they have been sued?  A: You should consult a. law  yer, unless the claim is for  under $500 when you may sue  yourself in small claims division of provincial court. If the  claim is for under $3,000, your  lawyer will prepare a county  court summons naming you as  plaintiff and the debtor as defendant.  This will be issued out of  the court registry and served  upon the defendant by a process server and the defendant  must, if he wishes to contest  the claim, file a document in  the court registry called an appearance. Again, this document should be drawn by a  lawyer. On the ninth day after the service of the summons  the plaintiff's lawyer may attend at the court registry and  enter judgment against the defendant unless in the preceding eight days the appearance  has been filed..  If the claims is for liquidated damages, that is, a specific sum of money, for example,  a debt, the judgment referred  to is called default judgment.  If the claim is for general damages, no specific sum of  money is sued for. General  damages can only be assessed  by the court. Common examples are injuries, pain and suffering, loss of limbs, etc. all of  which could arise from a car  accident or mishap caused by  dangerous premises;  In this case, the judgment  is called an interlocutory  judgment. This prevents the  defendant from disputing the  question of liability. The ques  tion of the amount of general  damages can still be disputed  at a later hearing and must,  in fact, be proved by the plaintiff whether disputed or not  by the jdefendant.  If the defendant filed an appearance, the plaintiffs lawyer must then obtain a trial  date which will be several  months later. At the trial, the  judge will decide wh0 owes  who how much, and give a fin  al judgment. There is a similar procedure in, the 'supreme  court of British Columbia  which hears claims of any  amount.

Rugby season re-opened two  weeks ago Saturday and the  score -was 6-3 for Gibsons oyer  the visiting Capilanos __. Bill  Sluis stored a try, 4 points, and  Gary Gray added the two-point  conversion; The Capilanos scor  ed on a penalty (kick, 3 points.  Last Saturday saw Gibsons  at home again, this time hosting the Ex-_3frits TV. Gibsons  was in trouble. on the opening  kick-off. The Ex-Brits kicked  to Gibsons and it appeared as  if; no one wanted the ball as  the opposition recovered and  ran into the end zone for a try.  The convert was unsuccessful.  Gibsons then kicked off to  the Ex-Brits but continued to  play poorlyV The l_c-Biits were  awarded several penalty kicks  but Were not able to score.  Finally Gibsons got on the  scoreboard when tBill .;'Sluis  picked up a poorlypassed ball  from an Ex-Brit and went in  to score, John Crosby added  the two point conversion.  Ex-Brits again kicked and  Gibsons reverted to'their ear  lier style and again found them  selves down 7-6 when the Ex-  Brits scored on a penalty kicfc  The half ended with the score  7-6 but Gibsons had been lucky  to get jo���! so easily.   ���  The second half started a  littlebetter for Gibsons with  the locals managing to contain  the visitors a little more but  they were still unable to score.  Each time, it appeared as if"  Gibsons were likely to score  the Ex-Brits would recover  the ball and kick it downfield.  Even though Gibsons controlled a greater majority of the ,  play it was the Ex-Brits who  added to the score with another penally kick, making the  score 10-6.  Gibsons then began to press  and on some good passing and  a fine run by Bob Johnson,  scored. John' Crosby added the  two points, and the score was  iZ-rlO. Gibsons continued to  press and; late in the game  were awarded a penalty kick.  John Crosby attempted and  succeeded on this kick and the  game ended lo-lO.  The game was probably the  poorest played for Gibsons with  a lot of talking back to, the  referee and the players apologize to the fans for their unsportsmanlike attitude.  The next two games are  away with Gibsons meeting  Trojans IV at Slocan Park and  Surrey the following week.  Both games start at 1 o'clock.  A MYSTERY  Sechelt's council was mystified at its meeting last week  when, a letter from Robert  Kelly, garbage collector, v?as  read. In it he apologized for  some behavior and bad language. Council, having nothing  on which to base .discussion  on the letter ordered it filed.  1W0H  YOWKXT  PAR  OF SHOES  AT  WIGARD'S  885-9345        SECHELT  ILL WE DO IS JUST FOR TOD  SERVICE SAVINGS SATISFACTION  CO-OP  Ass't  14 oz. ..
