 *f��*i?aial Library,  ?i*toria, B.  c.  The Ssiii-liine  Pumianed at Gibsons. S.C.  Phone 8.6-2622  Volume 26  Number 14, April 4, 1973.  18c per copy  Sewer connection    Subdivision activity showing increase  regulations ready  Gibsons Municipal council is  about ready to announce its  sewer connection requirements  now that the sewer system has  reached a point where house  connections  can be made.  First of all, septic tanks and  N  rock pits must be emptied and  .   back-filled with dirt to prevent  possible cave-ins. Public health  regulations   require   ten   feet  separation between the house  water service and the house  sewer service .line.  -  Preparation   of   the   trench  for the sewer will be done by  a contractor hired by the house  holder. All phases of thecon-  . struction  will   be   supervised  by an inspector.      > '    '  All  costs  paid  for by. the *  householder will cover the area  from the property line to the  house connection.  The following type of pipe  conforming to current ASTM  specifications arev acceptable  for service connections:  (a) Cast iron-soil pipe CSA  approved;  (b) Asbestos-cement building sewer pipe with O-ririg  joints;  (c) Vitrified.clay --flex-lpx  joints,  glazed,, extra strength;  (d) Polyvinyls chloride' _���  CSA-approved, rigid pipe with  rubber gasket "joints, or, :other;  approved methodi^f Tpmtihg.  Cast iron jhiu_\0be>used: -sH>  (a)   Where house sewer isr  less $han ^ 3Q inches from the  foundation wall;  ���(b) Where there is less than  18 inches of cover or under a  driveway where there is less  than 3 feet of ,cover;  (c) Where the sewer passes  through the abandoned septic  tank in which case* the granular material filling -the septic  tank shall be compacted to  95% ASTM density.  Sewer connections shall be  bedded in granular material  extending from 4 inches below  the bottom of the pipe to 6  inches, above the top of the  pipe. The bedding material  shall be relatively free of clay  or organic material and shall  have a maximum stone size of  % inch.  The grade for the sewer connection pipe shall be a minimum of Va inch per foot of  run.  More detailed information  will be available for the. public from a mailing piece which  will be sent out by Dave Johnston, municipal clerk.  It is estimated the sewer  connection at the street line  will cost $150 and that the  cost to the householder from  that point to the house will depend On the distance the house  is from the street line: It is  estimated, the average cost of  connecting the'house to the  system could run ; from $250  up according to the nature, of  -work*to be done.  Why is the public not .allowed; to attend annual meetings  of <St. Mary's Hospital Society  Director Rita P. Relf, of the  Regional District Hospital  board asked at the March  meeting last Thursday of the  Regional hospital board.  Her contention was that as  the hospital is financed by  taxpayers money the public  should be able to attend, annual meetings. At present only  members of St. Mary's Hospital society attend the annual  meeting. /,'  It was explained to her that  the hospital is the responsibility of the society. It was society members who negotiaed  for construction, of the present hospital.  The society is registered under   the   provincial   Societies  ��� t&msti-- ���  act and it was^^itfi^it that|the  provincial, hospital officials {negotiated to. set lip ia new hospital for.this area. The land, donated by Sechelt Indian band  and the hospital premises are  registered in the name of the  society.  Director Frank West who  looks after the financial affairs  of the hospital maintained  that" the board now had  enough work to do without  assuming the responsibility of  running the hospital. At present the Hospital board, which  is merely a name change for  the Regional district board,  looks after the financing only.  Other matters are tackled by  the St. Mary's Hospital Society  board which meets regularly  and will present its yearly report at the.end of the Society,  Monday April 16.  Better water service required  The Regional District water  committee has been advised  by Workis Supt. G. Dixon that  the plastib; line how serving  Selma Park Road is inadequate  and building now taking place  wjill require L better servicing.  " ���',The full cost of linking an  eight inch main between Highway 101 ;and the main oh the  reservoir line would be about  $6,300.  'The water committee agreed  that an eight inch ductile pipe  should be installed from the  main at the top of Selma P^rk  road to the lots requiring service, and added to as required.  A recent lire in Davis Bay  area resulted in Sechelt Fire  Department desiring a meeting with Regional board officials to get the water situation  clarified.  The committee, on the subject of fire hydrants,; agreed  that two should be installed  after discussion with fire de-  partments involved ;  Board unable to help!  The request from Mainland  Southwest for a $6,500 grant  from the Regional,,. District  board to!,--cpii^^;1���fe-';-co_ts.;,;�������.  tourist publicity for this year,  was turned down by the Regional District board.  ��� This amount was suggested  at the February meeting by-  Mike Ovenall, director';)!; of  tourism for Mainland Southwest, a govexftiment sponsored  organization for the support of  tourism.   Chambers   of   Com  merce in Gibsons arid Sechelt  provided annual sums of money in support of the booklet.  Now greater effoi^s musts be  made publicry to -hatch grants  -which.:.-::.the 'government will  -provide.   \ ' ';<:--���r-; j/  The Regional Board's turndown of the request was based  on the point that it had no  function to make grants, it  served summer residents anyway, and was not m the tourist  business.

Roberts Creek niariiia turned down  J; Gt Warn's application for  rezoning of an area at the  mouth ]of Roberts Creek from  Residential' to commercial' for  marina purposes was * turned  down by the Regional District  board meeting last week.  Director Harry Almond reported *rhe' had received a petition from Roberts Creek area  residents objecting to the proposed zoning. The planning  committee, noted that the objection was consistent with the  opinion of the advisory planning coinmittee.  Further the planning committee recommended a letter  to, the department of lands  urging that the foreshore lease  at Roberts Creek be cleared to  standards of the federal arid  provincial'fisheries agericies.  In a letter to the boatd signed by Sharon Criaig^Lockyer  Road, she wrote:   -lahy resi  dents of Roberts Creek are  aghast at such a loss of what  would make ideal park land.  Also we are concerned over  the ecological damage that  would ensue from the disturbance of the creek and the oil  and gas which would "be spread  to the one sandy beach left to  the residents.  "We strongly urge the Regional board to purchase this  land for a park and would i  hope the most important function of the Regional board  would be to search for and  purchase, suitable lands for  parks and green belts."  Mayor, alderman, differ  Local people should! have  firat priority in obtaining leased land.. This is a^recommendation which the Regional District board will place before  the provincial lands'* department.  The issue came; up at last  week's board meeting when  the plahnihg eojninittee after  recommending local applicants  first, requested a list of areas  for leasing be forwarded to the  Regional District so the information could be passed on  within the area, prior to post  ing the information with the  land commissioner.  Mayor Walter Peterson and  Aid. Ted Hume expressed op-  r posing views on Bill .132, the  ; Public '"' Officials Disclosure  * 'Act, at Tuesday night's council  J meeting.     '\  ���p'^'.'The" mayor maintained it  ''was discrimination against peo-  ^'i pie; holding public off ice: They  ^'take the path of office when  *\ elected,   and   that  should   be  "enough; "This bill is calling  ���.T,""us a bunch of crooks," he said.  ''' -/Aid. Ted Hume supported  'f'.the measure 100 percent main-  staining that an honest person  , had. nothing to be concerned  'about. If they have nothing to  i ;hide they have nothing to wor-  ;-; ryabout. He added he certain-  ^ly/suppprted the bill. The is-  "**sue came before council when  the UBCM executive asked for  .-.^council comment.

A lands department application for an extension to Smit-  ty's Marina water area and a  lease renewal from R. Hammond were _iscussed. Smit-  ty's application was approved,  on a one year basis. It had  been held in abeyance due to  possible harbor development  but the lands branch will not  consider further delay through  abeyance. The Hammond lease  was also, approved on a one  year basis.  The commission from the  sale of motor vehicle licenses  has been raised from three to  four percent by the provincial  motor vehicle branch. This will  increase the village take more  thari $100 yearly.  Ed Hauka requested a road  extension to his property off  Shaw Road. Council decided  that as it did not plan such  work in that area for the present, Mr. Hauka, planning to  build, will be able to arrange  a trail to his land.  Outdoors Unlittered (B.C.)  presented council with the idea  of an anti-litter week May 6  to 12. Council decided on its  own Clean-up week, April 22  to 29,; in conjunction with Sechelt's clean-up week, same  dates.

Reyburn, building inspector iii his monthly report  said building continues stronger than ever with February  reaching a value_jof $5*10,000.  In all to date this year building  figures total $1,183,400. The  total for the same period to  the  end  of March last year  was $736,200:  Mr. Reyburn drew to the  board's attention that the buiid  ing department workload was  becoming an almost impossible  situation. As more construction takes place, he reported,  more - time and field- inspections are required. Counter  and telephone enquiries are  causing delays in the issuance  of permits and the answering  of  correspondence.  Works" Superintendent    G.  Dixon  reported  deposits  had  been made for sewer installa-  ' tions on a 12 lot Roberts Creek  subdivision, also a six lot subdivision at Davis Bay. Outside  of operations by the Regional  District Board there are persistent rumors of considerable  activity   this Spring   in   the  'Langdale district.  ~    Building trends as reported  by Mr. Reyburn showed the  heaviest actlvity-in the Pender  Harbor  to Sechelt   area  and  /.M^yaJtued at  $797,400.

The Toronto Globe and Mail has taken a look at British  Columbia's Bill 42, the Land Commission Act and has decided  that compensation as far as agricultural land is concerned is  the remaining sore point.  However the paper's editorial writer finds there is some  good in the measure. The editorial concludes in this manner:  "The Act, nevertheless, is improved by the amendments. Perhaps if they had been included in the origin-  al bill, the public uproar which ensued could have been  avoided; but more probably not. The government may  irierely, like other governments have done from time  to time, have introduced an unpopular measure in a  highly unpopular form, so that when the least acceptable parts were corrected by amendment, the medicine  would slip down without too much public objection.  "How British Columbia accepts the medicine in its  new form will be of interest in all provinces. Each must  eventually do something about the preservation of farm  land and the use of land generally. British Columbia is  Canada's guinea pig."  The West appointment  Election of Director Frank West of the Sunshine Coast Regional District as a member of the Municipal Finance Authority  of British Columbia, if put in proper' perspective, is a distinct  privilege for the Sunshine Coast. We have a direct representative on the province-wide Municipal Finance Authority.  There are larger municipalities or Regional Districts which>  carry heavier weight in municipal affairs than does the Sunshine Coast. Be that as it may the financing of the Regional  District and its hospital and other institutions has felt the hand  and mind of Frank West on its operations. He is also in a top  position as financial adviser to Canadian Forest Products at  Port Mellon.  The Finance Authority is composed of seven representatives,  four of which are mayors in their respective communities such  as Victoria, North Vancouver and Burnaby.     ,  During the last two years the authority has sold bond issues  valued at $44.9 million for regional districts and municipalities  at rates lower than they could obtain on their own.  There is no way of brushing aside the capabilities of Mr.  West when it comes to discussing financing or digesting a financial situation. So let us on the Sunshine Coast offer our respects to a man of such stature he has been selected to serve as  a director on a finance authority which, affects quite a large  section of B.C. populace.  5-10-20 years ago  ing March produced 4.10 inches of precipitation.

Sixteen days with rain dur-  BY STEVEN LEE  New Zealand's North Island stretches 300 miles beyond Auckland into an area  known as the winterless north-  land. It was here that the coun  try was born and it is here I  begin my explorations.  The first European settlers  arrived in New Zealand in the  early HffOO's and established  themselves in the far north  around the Bay of Islands. The  pioneers occupied themselves  in farming (agriculture flourished) and in trade with the  ��� whaling vessels. They had  come from Australia and Europe - but, unlike the Australians, came by choice and not  exile. By 1840 their numbers,  territory and trades had swelled. Missionaries and arms  traders poured into the new  land arid brought disaster to  the Maori civilizations, (intertribal war, chaos and death  to a land, that had known  peace and prosperity for generations.  Meanwhile, Australian and  British interests grew. A British governor was sent from  New South Wales to 'Waitangi  to safeguard the interests of  British settlers. Several other  European powers also had interests ' in the area/ and the  Americans were never far  away.  On Feb. 5-6, 1840 the Great  Chiefs of the North Island  Maoris gathered in front of  Governor Hobson's residence  at Waitangi to decide their fate  Hobson proposed, that the  chiefs sign a treaty which, in  effect, would deprive them of  their own sovereignty to  Queen Victoria. In return, the  Crown would guarantee the  Maoris possession of their held  lands, forests and fisheries  and bestow to them the rights  and privileges of British subjects. '  After niuch debate, and in  the interest of ending the anar  ohy that raged throughout  their land, the Maori chiefs  signed the Treaty of Waitangi  and pledged their loyalty to  Victoria, Empress of India, and '  New Zealand became a new '<  colony within the Empire.  The first thing I had to  learn about hitch-hiking in  New Zealand was finding the  right side of the road to stand  on in order to obtain a ride in  the direction I wished to go.  It sounds simple enough but  New Zealanders drive on the  left-hand side of the road -  with the exception of downtown Auckland at rush hour.  Despite handicaps I was extremely lucky with rides. In  half an hour the great urban  sprawl of Auckland had disappeared to be replaced 'by >'.  some of the world's most beau  tiful countryside; rolling hills,  forests, pastures - or as New  Zealanders call them paddocks  and unending miles of cliffs  and sand beaches.  An hour north of Auckland  lies Warivera.. Here the Pacific cuts into the land to form  a small pleasant cove. Around  it are high steep hills that release a small stream into the  sea. The road winds down  from the hilltops, touches the  head of the cove, and then  climbs back up into the hills.  Every inch is thick in dense  green forest but for a small  cluster of buildings between  the sea and the road. On this  spot are to be found some of  New Zealand's many natural  hot springs. The spring water  has been fed into a series of  pleasant cement swimming  pools, each pool a different  water temperature.  Surrounding the pools are a  multitude of aromatic tropical  blooms and rustling pa_np.  The afternoon sun hovered  above the hibiscus as I slipped  into the steaming muscle-relaxing water.  On the road again towards  Northland's major town of  Whangari. (After many  strange looks from efforts such  as whang gary I learned the  correct pronunciations of fan-  ga-ray.)  Early February was the beginning of a major drought  that is continuing at the. time  of writing. Northward  it  be  came hot and dry; the grass  golden yellow and the trees  still under a heavy coat of  dust. Inland, the climate took  on Sahara characteristics with  clumps of fern and stunted  trees in the parched fields adding to the Kenya highlands  effect.  The highway worked its way  inland through the hills and  grasslands and then eastward  again toward the Pacific.  About 20 miles south of Whan-  garei the highway reaches the  crest of the uplands. This is  Pilbrow Hill.  The land sweeps down from  Pilbrow Hill like a massive  apron to the sea. Meadows and  forest cover the landscape in  a descending patchwork of  gold and green until the patterns meet the clean white  line of Waipu beach and the  dark blue Pacific beyond.  This was the scent that became the home and resting  place of much travelled Nova  Scotian settlers who came to  iSTew Zealand from the Mari-  times over a century ago.  .On to Whangaree for a short  stop. A city of 30,000 people,  it is the main commercial centre north of Auckland. The  trading arid business nub for  the surrounding dairies, mixed  farms and sheep ranches, it is  also the home of New Zealarids  major oil refinery at nearby  Marsden Point where giant  tankers bring crude oil from  overseas. The city boasts a  thriving boat industry and is  world reknown for its building  ^repair and refitting facilities  for sailboats and yachts - acclaimed to be the best such  facilities in the South Pacific.  Inland again from Whan-  garei to the town of Kawa-  kawa 'by way,of little travelled winding country roads.  There are no towns or villages  between the two points and  the environs are occupied only  by sheep and sweet smelling  forests. This is the land of the  giant Kauri tree that rivals  California's redwood Sequoias  in enormity, and, like the Sequoia, has almost vanished  through man's greed and  _bufie of nature. f ���������,..S,,... ���;.���:,. '  From Kawa , kawa to the  coast once more to Paihia and  Waitangi. Friendly and fascina  ting Northlanders had brought  me to the doorstep of this historic sight on the very eve of,  what the Prime Minister  would proclaim the next day  as New Zealand's National  Birthday.  Paihia clings to the shore as  if the sea, in a generous mood,  had sucked it from the very  depths and flung it to the base  of the green wooded hills behind. A ��� narrow winding road  climbs through the hills from  Kawa kawa and drops to the  Bay of Islands. Here, where  that road touches the warm  waters and the spar.���ing  sands and where it clings to  the waves for two miles, lies  the village and its 200 citizens.  At the end of the road on a  headland that juts out into the  Bay is Waitangi, a park that's  mostly forest, the Treaty  House that was Governor Hob-  son's   residence   in   1840,   and  For Real ��sfafe on the  Sunshine Coast  K, CROSBY  CHARLES ENGLISH LTD.

Gibsons has  grown away from the sea; Sechelt has turned, its back upon  it - but Paihia belongs to the  ocean.  Paihia  was to  become my  first home in New Zealand  and I could not have chosen  a better sight. Ideal climate,  spectacular setting and friendly, sincere people who made a  visitor feel immediately at  home combined to ensure a  memorable stay.  Within 24 hours of my arrival the peace and obscurity  of Paihai and Waitangi would  be for a short time, broken. I  soon found myself at the stage  of festivities and at the focal  point of the nation's attention,  the   anniversary   celebrations.  N.

Parliament Hill  (By HARRY OLAUSSEN  Federal NDP Candidate)  Allegations that unemployment insurance recipients are  being tricked and coerced into  disqualifying themselves have  been brought to the attention  of members of Parliament.  Hundreds of benefit control  officers have been double-checking UIC claims all across  Canada since last year.  Recipients are asked a series  of questions and are required  to sign a statement Written by  the officer describing their  availability, efforts to obtain  work and other related factors  Often people ' don't understand the questions . and the  result is a signed statement  full of unintentional halftruths  Here in the riding of Coast-  Chilcotin men and.women, living in isolated areas, or areas  in which few employment opportunities exist, are required  to show proof that they are  actively seeking work with the  result that many have been  disqualified due to overzeal-  ous investigators. To me the  act discriminates against such  people.  It is unfortunate that the  ones who have taken unfair  advantage of their unemployment insurance benefits are  always in the spotlight, while  a great number of people,  many of whom have written  me, find themselves in impossible situations . with families  to support and hardly any mon  ey to live on. These are the  pathetic cases that are all too  often ignored by those who  are prone to criticize the Unemployment Insurance Act.  Now it doesn't help to register with Manpower for a job.  Tm told that in itself is not  sufficient. A person gets some  kind of form in which he has  to register the names of the  employers to whom he went,  -the date of seeking work at  those places of employment  and the response. All of which  is fine if you live in Vancouver  and there are a number of employers that can be reached  within walking distance. But  if you live in the smaller communities of this riding the situation is quite different.  First the claimant has to  travel some distance to find  these potential employers.  Then, he or she has to be prepared to move from the home  community to the place of employment. Such is not the case  if one lives in Vancouver and  doesn't have to move himself  and his family if a job is found  in the area.  The only suggestion I can  make to people who are disadvantaged by this discriminatory system is to go to every  employer you can, even though  that employer may not employ people with your skills,  and not���y the commission of  this. If your skills are as a can  nery worker you may have to  apply for work in a sawmill.  If you are a logger try applying for work in a bakery even  if you don't know anything  about baking. In other words,  do not restrict yourself in anyway as to kind of work or  place of work. This is the only  way you can do it if you don't  want to be disqualified.  If anyone has any problems  regarding his or her unemploy  ment insurance do not hesitate to write to me c/o House  of Commons, Ottawa, giving  me all the details such as social  all the details such as social  insurance number, reason for  disqualification, non-payment  of benefits, etc. Whatever the  circumstances, I will look into the matter and try to do  something about it.

The usual situation is that  both husband and wife want  a divorce but neither of them  have committed adultery,  which is a common, if not the  usual grounds for divorce. The  proposal usually is that one  party will go to, say, Nevada,  California or Mexico and obtain a divorce there, where the  grounds are much broader and  sometimes virtually non-exist  ent, and then return to Canada. ,  A: Canadian law will usually recognize the decrees of a  foreign court, if the decree is  validly obtained by the law of  the foreign jurisdiction. There  are, however, several important exceptions in the law of  marriage and divorce. One is  that the petitioner, the person  suing, must establish domicle  in the foreign jurisdiction let  us say California, and that  such domicile must be established according to the rules  of Canadian law and not according to the law of California.  The California rule .may,  for example, be that it is merely necessary to prove six  weeks residence. The Canadian rule regarding domicile is  that one must not only prove  residence but a permanent intention to remain within the  jurisdiction of the court out of  which the suit arose.  If Mary Doe were, by the  laws of California, to validly  and lawfully obtain a divorce  from John Doe, and Mary Doe'  was domiciled in Canada, the  divorce would be completely  valueless. The parties/would  thus still be married. Any  other marriage contracted by  the parties would be subject  to being declared void in an  action for annulment and either Joh or Mary Doe would  also, under certain circumstances, be subject to prosecution for bigamy. There would  also be no end of legal complications arising out of the birth  of any children and inheri-  -tance;-    - :'^'-'���**- "���-���--  Church  Food survey  April food supplies reported  by the Economics Branch, Agri  culture Canada, Ottawa.

The complaint concern%whe  ther the building inspector  can be secretary of the Variance board. The Municipal  act states no municipal employee or official shall serve  on this board.  Another point stressed by  the committee is that the act  requires all decisions must be  made in writing by all member's of the Board of Variance.  The Regional District's bylaw states that the building  inspector shall act as secretary to the Board of Variance  This board is composed of  three 'members and a secretary  and is set up as an appeal  board1 with power to act on  matters dealt with by municipal   councils   or   boards.,  55 APPLICANTS  Fifty-five applications- have  been received by the Regional  District board for the post of  draftsman - technician. The  board at its last meeting decided to whittle them down to a  selected number so the board  can arrive at a selection.  to be defined  On recommendation of its  building committee, the Regional Distract board will include a revised definition of  a mobile home in its zoning  byiawv  The committee recommended the section should read  "that a mobile home means a  structure manufactured as a  unit and intended, to be occupied in a place other than its  manufacture; which is manufactured in accordance with  the National Building code of  standards of the Canadian Sta  ndards Association and. is so  certifiied by the Canadian  Standards association or a  qualified; structural engineer  or a bu���ding inspector; designed for dwelling purposes;  and is especially designed for  movement along the highway  from time to time."  The committee also recommended all mobile homes in  mobile home parks which have  not received CSA certification  should be registered with the  Regional District on or before  a date to be* announced^ by the  building irispector and that  these - registered noh-CtSA.  homes be permitted to locate  on individual parcels witlhdn  the dstrict  The building committee noted that existing non-CSA mobile homes on individual  parcels should not be permt-  ted to relocate to other areas  Within the district. The committee recommended that ad-  vejrtisements1 he placed and  mobile park operators be advi  sed of this registration procedure.''-;.  should apply  If you are single and 65  years of age or oyer with an  income of not more than $220  per. month or married with an  income of hot more than$400  per month, you may qualify  for the Kiwahis Village Senior  Citizens Housing.  For details and application  forms contact George Cooper  at 886-9344 or Ozzie Hincks at  Box 815, Gibsons.  Construction of housing is  underway. It is expected to be  completed this summer. So any  one who can qualify is urged  to obtain and complete an application form as soon as possible so the screening committee's job can be eased.  This, will allow the committee to make an early decision  of ; qualifying occupants and  enable them to have the earliest notice if successful.  Relf objects  Recommendation by the Regional District board's planning cornmittee that Cliff Gilker be appointed as a member  at large to the planning committee drew a protest from Director Rita Relf (Halfmoon  Bay )that as a member, of that  committee she was not aware  of the meeting. The matter  was turned over to the executive committee for study.  She also objected to the refusal of the committee to allow a member of Gibsons  Wildlife Club to sit in on committee meetings, suggesting an  analogy in the two cases.  Mr. Gilker -who was one  time chairman of the Regional  District board has served as a  member at large for some time.  Under Regional board regulations members at large can be  appointed for specific work.  BOWIING  ���x     E & M BOWLADROME  High scores for the week:  Je^   Jorgenson .743,   Evelyn  Berdahl 277.
