Phono 836-2622  Volume 26  Number 17, April 25, 1973.  10c per copy  Union  bargains  on wages  A three man negotiating  team, comprised of F. Allnutt,  R. McPhedran, and W. K. Peterson left for Vancouver Mon  day to begin what could become one of the most critical  bargaining sessions in the history of the Port Mellon local.  Wage delegates from all B.C.  locals of the United Paper-  workers International Union  will meet in Vancouver for approximately eight days to forr  niulate the master wage agenda, which will be presented -to  the Pulp and Paper Industrial  Relations bureau, the body  that negotiates on behalf of  the pulp and paper manufacturers in B.C., on May 7.  The present contract expires  Julyl and delegates are anxious to conclude negotiations  as quickly as possible after  that date. A strong feeling exists among members of the local that a contract should, be  signed by July 1 or a strike  called.  One of the reasons, this years  bargaining session is shaping  up as such a critical one is the  strong mandate given the negotiators to "put no. ,-l priority  on a shorter work year. Over  85% of the members of- local  1119 who returned the ques-  tionaires distributed gave that  item top priorty.       ���, -     ,  The P&P companies .are' ex-  . pected to, resist these demands.  much the flame as they "have  refused to back-down to shingle workers at Canfor and M .  & B who have been on strike  for a shorter work week for  nine (9) months.  Local 3302 of the United  Steelworkers of America is on  strike in' Vancouver against  Western Canada Steel since  early March, for a shorter  work week, WCS is .owned by  Cominco and does not want to  open the door for all 3600 Cominco employees and 12,000  Steelworkers members in B.C.,  to get the shorter work week.  The negotiations could prove  to be critical to not only pulp  and paper tout forestry and  steel as well.

Jim'Williamson officiated. At this aeqv&ce .Lucille  Mueller, a choir member of  the church on whose board  Mr. Stewart served, sang a  special solo.  - Mr. Stewart had lived in  Gibsons for almost 26 years,  having come from Vancouver  where he had worked as a  mill sawyer. He served the  community in many phases,  particularly in the municipal  field.where he was building  inspector for 13 years.  His , association with community life also extended to  long service in the Kiwanis  _ club ot which he was a. charts-  member. TAs^ well 'as, taking  r -partJ��s- ^-aiexec^tive'-neinjbe^ *,  of the club,"he was;* leader ini  many community efforts in  which the Kiwanis were involved.

He also leaves a son Barrie  and daughter-in-law Frankie,  two grandsons,. Rick and David  and granddaughter Shelley.  The funeral service was held  in Vancouver.  Transportation problem outlined  J. P. Powers, Hillcrest Rd-,  has a problem involving industry and regulations. Oh the industry side, Mr. Powers has a  logging operation of nine units  at Long Bay, Gambier -Island.  On the regulation side, he can  not find a place to park in  Gibsons area.  He handles quite a bit of  freight over the Municipal  wharf and enquired from Gibsons council last week if ;he  could not have a permanent  parking place on the wharf.  Parking regulations are in the  hands of the federal department of public works which is  not inclined to overlook parking regulations.  Mr. Powers was "more concerned with haying parking reserved on the wharf owing to  his Gambier project involving  men who get injured sometimes, he informed council. He  wanted to be able to "offer  quick transportation to hospital to an injured man from  his  Gambier operation.  He was advised to contact  the federal department to see  what could, be done.  Opinion on bill held over  A  REMINDER  Gibsons Athletic Association  annual ^meeting takes place  Sunday at 7:30 p'jxU- at the Athletic Hall on Marine Drive.  Everyone welcome.  When the provincial legisla- '  tive Bill 132, the Public Officials Disclosure Act, vras V  brought up at last week's Gibsons council meeting, Aid. Kurt  Hoehne halted proceedings: on  it by maintaining council was  in session to discuss municipal  business and not law.  The subject was before council at the suggestion of the  Union of B.C. Municipalities  which asked that councils express views on: the content of  the measure which required -  members of council to reveal '  the: nature of their financial  holdings.  The measure was then held  over until after the business  session when discussion revealed differing points of view be  tween Mayor Walter Peterson  arid Aid. Ted Hume. Finally c  council decided as the measure  was to be held over by the  government until October, that  council could also table it. No  opinion will go to the UBCM  at this point.

Olaussen said, "We will not  defeat the government as long  as it brings in legislation we  can support. The test will come  after the Easter recess. The  government- has announced  that it will introduce legislation to lower corporate income tax from 49 to 40 percent. We have made our opposition to these tax concessions  .very clear. We will vote  against them! The survival of  the government depends upon  the Tories ��� they have been  lobbied by the Canadian Manufacturers Association to support  these measures!"  , Mark Rope, NDI* member of  Parliament for Fraser Valley  West, stated, that ,whenvthe  NI)flP^cauc^_��1^ last  "'election, it decided, to put forward a positive program.

"We have  managed to have a Food Prices  Review  Board,   a  central  plank in our policy for years,  -included as a recommendation  ..' of the food prices committee.  We   are  now   pressuring  the  government to introduce some  'legislation  to   deal with  this  recommendation," he added.  More grants  for seniors  Twenty-seven New Horizon  grants were announced for  British Columbia, a news release from Ottawa states.

BOWEN POLL BOOTH  In the event, of a school  board election to fill a vacant  seat on the board the election  booth for Bowen Island will be  the Bowen Island Elementary  School. A earlier advertisement named Collins Hall as  the polling booth.  CHIMNEY FIRE  Tuesday night's fire call was  from the home of Frank West,  Gower Point road . when an  open fireplace 'chimney caught  fire. Damage was slight.  A notice of intention to apply to lease land by the Sunshine Coast Golf and Country  club published in last week's  issue seeks the use of the top  half of the Robert Creek land  set aside for a recreational  facility.      ���---..;���.  This top half is about 75  acres; : The application which  normally goes through the Regional District bo&rd for its  approval or rejection will, it  is expected, come before Thurs  . day   night's   meeting   of   the  board.   "  The terms under which the  . land    was    transferred   from  MacMillan-Bloedel to the Regional District board through  negotiations was that the land  is for public use only.  At present the land is partially developed by the Recreation committee at a cost approximating $60,000. Some  four years ago the golf club is  reported to have approached  M-B f or the land but was turned down on the grounds that  the negotiators represented a  private club.  The Recreation committee  has written Victoria officials,  Don Lockstead, MLA, and the  Regional board on its own behalf.  passes new  business license bylaw  Sechelt's Bylaw 121 given  final reading at the first April  council meeting, covers licensing of business and the amount,  to be paid for such licenses.  It also defines types of bus-  ness, resident or non-resident.  A non-resident business means  a business other than a resident business carried on within the municipality.  In the non-resident field the  by-law also states that any per  son. applying for a license for  a non resident business such  as an auctioneer; peddlar, scavenger shall place with the  municipality a Vbond of $500,  Licenses cover a six month  (-periooT-<~expiring;. -oni'April1 -30  and Oct. 31..,TJie bylaw also  states a license is not transferable from one premises to another.

Sechelt awaits road report  A re-arrangement of traffic  control at the Reserve end of  the village of Sechelt awaits  the result of a department of  highways     survey,     Sechelt's  council learned at last week's  meeting w/hen correspondence  from various sources was read.  The chamber of commerce  wanted a crosswalk in the  Cenotaph area. Another suggested the removal of the  Cenotaph to Legion property.  The SMT bus company asked  that it re-arrange its entry  and exit areas which council  approved, subject to highways  department approval.  With the new Bank of Montreal building under construction within the area involved,  Librarians look to future  the department of highways is  looking into future highway  patterns because of the bottleneck which is created on the  three-quarter-mile land bridge  on which Sechelt is built., including possibility of a new  highway for through traffic.  This highway would be closer  to the B.C. Hydro right-of-way  Tied in also with the roads  problem is that of proposed  subdivisions north of Sechelt.  Council decided last week to  hold up a plan between the  Van Egmond and Sechelt  Lands Ltd. properties until,  both subdivisions line up properly on a road crossing agreement. Council also wants  grades kept within the bylaw-  limits.  Sechelt's committee in charge  of the public library appeared  before Sechelt's council last  week to see what council could  do   to  help   them   with  their  problems.  Mrs.. Ada Dawe, spokesman  for the group of seven, explained that the library was  in need of help but as a committee of citizens without authority it could not function  much longer under today's  pressures.  Council decided to have the  village clerk write to Provincial Library Commission to see  how best the local library  could organize to obtain the  greatest assistance. To top off  the meeting the library representatives asked that a sign  be placed in the village informing the public of the location of the library.  Present from the Sechelt Library Committee besides Mrs.  Dawe were Mrs. Montgomery,  Mrs. Spencer, Adele DeLange,  Mrs. Barclay and Mr. and Mrs.  Shaw. 2   Coast News, April 25, 1970.

B.C  Hotdog supervisors?  Experience of this area over the last 10 years or more as regards public education committees has not resulted in any advances in education.  The present proposed. Citizen's Education Forum could have  a bright future if it does not push things too hard. The founding  meeting has been set for Saturday May 12.  The opening paragraph of the release to the press points out  that the traditional role of parents has always been that of hot-  dog seller, playground supervisor or babysitter on class field  trips.  -This is a reasonable description of the public's part in active'  education processes. However the idea of the forum which is  composed of residents from Langdale area to Pender Harbor,  is the most important public factor that has appeared in education for a long time.  The need for the forum is explained in this press release:  "With increasing public discussion of educational methods and  goals many parents feel the need to contribute more tangibly  to accomplishing what they see as desirable conditions in our  schools.  "This situation has appeared in all sections of British Columbia and was the subject of an extensive brief on Public Participation in the Schools by the British Columbia Parent Teacher  Association. The brief was supported and financed by the B.C.  Department of Education, the BCTF and the Surrey School  'Board.-'-' 'v- ���.���..���'������/'  "Among the many suggestions for citizen participation was  that of a Citizen's Education Forum. This idea was adopted by  the Surrey School Board in 1972 The Citizen's Education Forum  in Surrey receives financial assistance, the use of stenographic  facilities in the Surrey School Board office, the occasional.assistance of a staff member as a guide to the forum, and a lot of  moral support {and co-operation to encourage citizen participation and suggestions on behalf of the people of Surrey.  "This encouraging co-operative situation has come to the attention of a number of local parents and teachers attending a  meeting to discuss our local schools. It was decided to elect a  committee to do the ground work to establish such a Citizen's  Education Forum in our school district. All interested citizens  will be invited to participate on a membership basis."  A solution is necessary!  While nothing developed at the annual meeting of St. Mary's  Hospital Society concerning the suggestion that the non-member  public should have more say in board operations, an issue which  was raised by Director Rita Relf at last month's meeting of the  Regional District board, there was a good point raised on another subject.  This concerned the annual report generally and the manner  in which the meeting disposed of it. Society members are given  a copy of the annual reports as they enter the hall and. the time  between then and the opening of the meeting is not more than  15 to 20 minutes.  For anyone to strive to digest six or seven reports including  a financial statement, it is an impossibility. Directors of the society know this and are trying to find a way to overcome the  situation.  There are actually about three reports which contain significant material on past and future operations and they are the  financial, administration and building report. If these were boiled down to three sheets of paper and. mailed out to members  a week in advance it would give members a chance to reflect  on what those reports contained. In the event of debatable points  arising in other reports those points could be outlined briefly  and mailed too.  The society is now operating in a population with a growing  number of newcomers not acquainted with the history of St.  Mary's Hospital and to some extent not too interested.  The method of handling reports at annual meetings in the  past was accepted without question but newer faces are asking  whether the method used is truly democratic, and with logical  reasoning.  Selection of board members to fill vacant posts as done by the  board in presenting its choices, could be revised, by having all  nominations come from the floor. This has been used in the past  successfully.  The board is operating successfully. There is no doubt about  that but it is becoming too big a proposition to be operating in  the cozy manner of the last few years. More people appear to  be wanting to have more to say, right or wrong, and it would  be to the board's advantage to face this fact.  In her report to St. Mary's  . Hospital Society at its annual  meeting last week, Ellen E.  Bragg, hospital administrator  said she hoped to add to the  nursing staff and hoped that  planning would commence for  a major hospital extension to  accommodate    the    increased  work load. The complete report follows:  St. Mary's Hospital experienced difficulties in 1972. Construction delays and low occupancy of the new second floor  created severe budget problems and delayed the settling-  in process. Extended care beds  were not completely occupied  until June. The enlarged hospital and the increased serv-  vices dramatically increased  supply and drug costs.  A shared service with Lions  Gate Hospital pharmacy department was instituted early  in the year and resulted, in ongoing expert support for physi  cians and hospital staff, plus  significant reductions in inventories and drug costs.  Following Mr. Wagemaker's  resignation in June, St. Mary's  Hospital shared administrative  services with Lions Gate Hospital, and as a consequence  most of St. Mary's Hospital  departments, received assistance from their sister departments at Lions Gate. Purchasing, housekeeping, dietary,  nursing, business office, physio  therapy, laboratory received  consultative services on a regular or periodic basis.  Throughout, the prime objective has been to improve the  quality of service to patients  and to prepare the hospital  for a survey in 1973 by the  Canadian Council on Hospital  Accreditation. With the appoin  tment of a full time administrator in November 1972, these  goals continue to be of prime  importance.  Many problems have arisen  due to the effects of minimal  building and equipment maintenance during the years.  Breakdowns, perhaps that of  the elevator most affecting the  public, have occurred at a disconcerting pace. We are happy  to say that a continuing maintenance program has now been  instituted and major repairs  have been done.  General administ ration,  which includes, business, admitting office and medical records have coped with heavy  . work-loads, ���treamliriing methods are being applied. Payroll is now prepared on the  B���C. Hosital's Association computer. New forms are on order  to decrease the clerical work  connected with patient billing  and accounting.  Better meals, improved  house-keeping and supply services, sound financial management and quality patient care,  reflect the ability, openness  to new ideas, and the industry  of the St. Mary's Hospital staff  in 1972.  While there is much specula  tion about the future role of  the hospital, few reliable predictions can be made. We hope  in 1973 to have a well established, well financed and well  staffed Intensive Care unit. We  hope to obtain accreditation.  We hope to renovate the existing operating room, storage  facilities and other areas to  provide more working space to  accomodate the increased services required by the new second floor.  We hope to add to the current number of nurses on our  staff, who are doing a remarkable piece of work in the hospi  tal despite staff limitations  We hope to commence planning for a major extension to  the hospital to effectively accomodate increased work loads  required of the supporting ser  vices by the second floor addition. ,  We believe that it is important that we determine  what services, our Sunshine  Coast wants and needs in the  spectrum of health care and  how best to assist in meeting  the needs/Above all, we hope  that our hospital organisation  will become increasingly responsive to the inidvidual hu-  Church  Services  ANGLICAN  St. Bartholomew's  Rev.

However the next to the  last paragraph with the reference to the project "having the  blessings of the ecclestiacs"  I found very amusing as these  gentlemen are and have been  "freeloaders" all their lives  and their efforts to add another burden to the hardworking  taxpayer should be discredited  seeing that they never worked  for a living and never will  and have 'been parasitic on society since time immemorial.  I think the term "legalized  exploiters of the credulous and  purveyors of the nebulous"  very nicely describes their activities and I am elated, after  hearing the results of the referendum, to discover that one,  at least, of their schemes has  been defeated. -Don Cruicfc-  shank.  Editor: Monday evening,  April 16, 1973, I was given the  so called extreme privilege of  attending the St. Mary's Hospital Society meeting, as I was  one of some 160 persons who  possessed, a society membership in excess of 30 days prior  to the meeting.  I have never been more disgusted with a meeting in my  whole life. It was a complete  waste of my time and everyone else who attended,  The meeting had been so organized before the general pulb  lie arrived, that if four questions had not been asked during the-meeting it would have  been over in about 10 minutes.  It was so speedily done that  the treasurer asked for the appointment of the auditor for  the year and they had been  appointed about five minutes  before.  Now maybe some people  think that is the way a good  meeting should be run but I  feel that the general public is  being shown a very poor lack  of consideration.  There is absolutely no public relations done by the trustees towards the general membership of the hospital society,  it is almost as if it's a secret ~  group. The aniount of information obtained by.the general  membership was absolutely nil  I don't see how a business  such as the hospital can run as  smoothly and beautifully every  year.  The reports submitted by  each committee and individual  are so full of goodness and  roses that they are unbelievable. I think it's about time  that the general public got interested in the hospital society and started to see if this  bed of roses we are presented  with is as good as its made to  seem. '     ��� v  The complete, lack of democracy even extended into the  election of trustees. The nominating committee of which  few knew existed, had approached four persons to seek the  four vacancies that were open  this year. Never as a member  were we informed of this committee's existance except to  hear that it had closed nominations. The menabership was  informed at the meeting that  these persons were well qualified to seek the positions but  we were riot told of their qual  ifications or what criterion  had been set out, although I  am sure they must be welt  qualified. I never-the-less feel  that the general membership  should also be informed of  their qualifications before a  well thought out vote could *->e  made.  I also disagreed with the  boards method, of using the  ballot. The four persons nominated by the nominating com-  xnitee were presented On the  ?WHY RENT?  Look at this!

Parliament Hill  (By HARRY OLAUSSEN  Federal NDP Candidate)  Harry Olaussen, Coast-Chilcotin MJP. welcomed proposed  increases in income tax exemp  tions from $650 to $1,000 for  all persons 65 years of age and  over, during an Income Tax  Act debate in the House of  Commons.  He stated that low-income  groups continue to bear a disproportionate share of the tax  load due to inequities in the  tax system, and criticized the  government for making token  gestures rather than implemen  ting drastic changes in the  tax  system.  "We cannot continue to be  obsessed with mere means  and methods rather than long  run objectives", said Olaussen.  "Every time there's talk of tax  reform we hear loud voices of  protest from those who fear  they may be deprived of their  familiar loopholes - their expenses, entertainment, allowances, depletion allowances  and other artful tax shelters."  In conclusion Olaussen said,  "I welcome the deductions because there are those whose  needs are such that this will  enable them to live just a little  better."  WANTED  Used furniture or what  have you  AL'S USED FURNITURE  WE BUY BEER  BOTTLES  Gibsons ��� 886-2812  Coast News, April 25, 1973.    7  Point of Law  (By a Practicing Lawyer  Copyright)  We have receved several  questions asking how collection agencies operate. We recommend that these be used to  collect accounts or debts that  would otherwise be written  off or forgotten.  The creditor should first exhaust 'his own efforts to collect  He should contact the debtor  several  times  - (by phone or  letters.  If  he  can't  get  anywhere, he should write a final  letter saying that if satisfactory   arrangements   for   payment are not made in say ten  days, he is instructing his lawyer to sue, etc. If this doesn't  produce    results,    he   should  then turn the account over to  a collection agency.  The collection agency is set  up to collect debts and they  know and employ all the psychological tricks. This is now  a highly specialized job. They  will charge a good fee, up to  one-third of the amount collected, but if they don't collect,  they don't charge so there is  nothing to lose. The agency  starts off with a series of letters and phone calls to the  debtor which increase in se-  veity.  They will bug the debtor till  he pays something. They all  eniploy a skip tracer - another  highly specialized occupation,  to trace debtors who move  around. The agency will locate  the debtor's employer, his  bank account, and the source  of any assets or income. If  they can't succeed, the agency's lawyer will write a letter  threatening a law suit and the  garnishment of wages, etc. All  collection agencies engage a  lawyer on a permanent retainer.  If all fails, the agency will  go back to the creditor and ad  vise that the time is ripe to  sue or write off the debt. They  will explain that they require  an advance of a sum of money  to cover legal fees and expenses and that these are added  on to the debt and will be returned if successful. At this  stage the creditor must decide  whether he wishes to invest  some money in the venture or  whether this would be throwing good .money after bad.  If j the creditor decides to  proceed and the debt is under  $500, the agency will sue in  small claims court themselves  where no lawyer is required  and the legal costs are low. If  the debt is over $500, the agen  cy will instruct their lawyer  to sue and perhaps garnish  wages. The agency may obtain  a motor vehicle search with a  view to seizing property.  Some debtors are extremely  difficult to collect from, for  example, itinerant labourers,  self employed persons and  those with 'hidden assets or incomes. Most debtors can, however, be forced to pay if the  creditor is willing to persist  and to pay for all the collection procedures. A previous  article has dealt with the garnishing of wages. Later articles  will deal with seizing property and the judgment summons.  For Real Estate on the  Sunshine Coast  K. CROSBY  CHARLES ENGLISH LTD.

April 18, 25  Horoscope for the next week  By TRENT VARRO  ARIES - March 21 to April 20  Money matters will be highlighted for the next couple of  weeks. By using past experience as a guide, you can forestall any trouble that imay be  churning up a little "storm".  TAURUS - April 21 to May 21  A great deal of 'knowledge"  in business matters can stir  up much'��� activity in the lives  of Taurus persons at this time.  By keeping calm and level  headed you can gain a great  deal.  GEMINI - May 22 to June 21  Good things are waiting for  you if you don't grab too  quickly. Bide your time and.  be cautious in any new business deals. The picture changes  too rapidly. Don't push your  luck too far!  CANCER - June 22 to July 22  "Rome wasn^t built in a day".  This also applies to your hopes  and aspirations for success.  You have probably been working hard to achieve some  "goal." Be patient and success  will come.  LEO  - July  23  to  August 23  You   can  learn  a   great  deal  about    life    and    the    world  around   you   at   the   present  time.  Some marked "change"  in daily living may precede or  follow this week's happenings7  in your- life at this time.  VIRGO - Aug. 24 to Sept. 22  A feeling of being "blocked"  in some business venture is of  a purely temporary nature.  Much prestige and success is  indicated for the sigh of Virgo.  Be fair with others.  LIBRA -  Sept. 23 to Oct. 23  Any feeling of being "let  down" this week can be counteracted by remembering the  old saying "every cloud has  a silver _ning". A beautiful  garden in May, usually calls  for April showers.  SCORPIO - Oct. 24 to Nov 22  Don't shut yourself off from  the rest of the world- Open  the door, and let in the sunshine! There might be a tendency to "brood" over past  mistakes. Be receptive, and  listen to others.  SAGITTARIUS Nov 23 Dec 21  Remain calm in any romantic  interlude that you may run  into at this time. There's a  strong possibility that it could  be just a passing fancy. This  is most important to your future life.  CAPRICORN - Dec. 22 Jan 20  This  coming week  might  be  mildly   upsetting   for   Capricorn  but  there is  really nor  thing   very  serious   to  worry  about.   Continue   in   a   quiet  way along the path that you  are following now.  AQUARIUS - Jail 21 to Feb 18  Your eyes may be closed to a  great    opportunity    on   your  door-step at the present time.  You are under favourable aspects if you don't jump to con  elusions   too   quickly.   Think!  PISCES - Feb   19 to Mar. 20  The only problem that astrology has for you now, is that  something may appear to be  "snatched,  away   from   you."  This is not actually the case.  You will gain in many ways  from this apparent loss.  (Copyright    1973    by    Trent  Varro.   All   rights   reserved.)
