Mrs. A. Labonte, school  board chairman conducted the  meeting. Other trustees out-  Kned the board position as a  result of the fire, that it was  now awaiting the adjudication  of the total fire loss which was  not expected! to be complete (  until mid-October. In the mean  time the insurance company  ha!d adtvanced $250,000 for immediate expenses. It was explained that the process could  not be speeded up:  Supt. R. R. Hanna said that  if there was a split secondary  school it would be grades 8, 9  and 10 only at a junior school  with grades 8 to 12 at the senior school The teaching level  of staffs at both schools.would  not be equal.  Debate centred on other  school sites with Selma (Park  taking the limelight. The board  maintained it would take a  long time to get that site ready  for s<__ool cKmstniotion purposes and then there were  other problems such as water  and road access to be considered.  Tuesday ' night's Gibsons  council after hearing Ian Mac-  Kenzie Jr. speak on behalf of  a proposed .curling rink . to  be on land owned by the  village, opposed his plan. Mr.  MacKenzie published a map  of his proposal in the Coast  News of Sept. 12. Mr. MacKenzie is also a candidate for the  vacant counted, seat, election  fo_ which falls on Saturday  with voting at the Municipal  rfall. He is opposed by William  R. Laing. Both men are CFP  employees.  'Council Tuesday night was  composed of three, Aldermen  Winston Robinson, acting mayor, Aid. Kurt Hoehne and Ted  Hume.  Letters from the Kinsmen'  and Kiwanis club expressed  their approval of a local curling rink. Aid. Hume said the  letters were a bunch of nothing  as they had no basis of estab-.  ished falct.  The MacKenzie petition asked for two and a half acres; of  land at the bottom of Shaw  Road. This land is now under  provincial agricultural reserve.  Acting Mayor Robinson said  council hoited to develop Brothers Memorial Park shortly.  Aid. Hoehne felt the land Mr.  MacKenzie sought would be of  great value to the village as  residential property. Aid  Hume said he could not see a  lots sold with the proteeeds to  be used for village improvement.  The matter was turned over  to Rob Buchan, professional  planner, for his comment.  The letter which follows was  presented to council by members of4 the organization .proposing the curling club: -  To Mayor Peterson-and Gibsons Villiage aldermen:  "We are extremely concerned with the problems of obtaining land for a curling club  in Gibsons village. In all good  faith the Gibsons Winter club  has held a public meeting,  forirned an executive, and made  application for the recreation  grant from Victoria. This application was held over to the  next session because we were  unable to provide a legal description of the land. It now  seems as if we are to miss the  Oct. 1 deadline for the next  allocation of funds.  "If the village council wish-  ~esfto have a curling club built  as: a recreational facility it  must make some real effort to*  give immediate encouragement  to this project.  "Your motion of June 26  seemed very clear but l? now  past due as far as our enthusiastic members are concerned.  If Brothers Park is truly unavailable- because of a lease  clause we request that council _  give their immediate attention  to alternative sites." 7  ��� About one year ago when  the proposal first came up  favorable   reaction   had   been  Two Blood Clinics planned  A two-acre site in Roberts��� private club operating on pub-  Creek received' some attention.

Acting Mayor Robinson said  the village real estate involved  was purchased by the village  to eventually be a source of  funds  when  sub-divided1  and  The Co-ordinating Council  - of Auxiliaries to St. Mary's  Hospital appeals to the people -  of the Sunshine Coast to contribute to the Blood Donor.

The results of the 1972 and  ^1973 clinics were disappointing  "The total number of units of  blood donated at these two  clinics amounted to only _71  units. "St. Mary _ Hospital ordered 384 units frbhv Sept. 1,  1972 to Sept. 1, 1973. Donations  from this  area  do  not  meet  the needs of our one hospital.  ���'.. There is an alarming short-  ������ age of blood in the Red Cross  blood bank and hospital demands for this vital resource  already have had to be drastically ��� cut as donations aire only  approximately one-third of the  minimum requirement. All  elective surgery in B.C. will  have to be cancelled unless the  public responds in large numbers.

Gibsons council was approached for the use of a two-  and-a-half acre site in Brothers  Memorial Park or on Highway  101 in vicinity of Twilight  theatre.  Gibsons council approved the  idea of a curling rink as a  community project offering  favorable consideration in reviewing land possibilities. The  _Iub. received at tentative go-  ahead, from Victoria calling  for plans, objectives and a  firm location of site. Further  delay on the site quesion delayed the club's application to  Victoria until the October sitting of the review board. That  time elapsed and a meeting  7"was called during which the  <\c__-rmai.;' Mr, McDevitt characterized progress to date as  an exercise in futility.  Ron Lacey presented a report to the club meeting on  ten pieces of land, privately  owned in the village. He also  Suggested an ideal location  above the sewage plant but it  is on council's reserve list for  housing development he said.

Board under pressure!  The meeting of the school board to which the public had a direct invitation to attend drew a crowd of about  300 persons and of that number there were not more  than 20 questioners most of whom sought information on  the problem of building a new school. The others were  inclined towards discussing the philosophical side of education.  If there is to be any criticism of the meeting the  seating arrangement for the public would be the reason.  Spreading tables between the board members and the  main audience pushed the bulk of the audience to the  back of the room making hearing not always the best.  TTie, result-was a jam of public iri vicinity of the door.  The school trustees had little to fend off in the way  of argumentative discussion and had no difficulty in controlling the meeting.  The reason for the meeting seemed unusual from the  writer's point of lview as the board revealed little beyond what has already been printed in the Coast News  during the last two weeks.  It appeared conclusive that what the audience sought  most was the building of a school to replace burned-out  Elphinstone and they wanted it done as quickly as possible.  Possibilities of huilding another school in Sechelt,  Selma Park or Roberts Creek brought up by questioner-  did not result in support from the bulk of the listeners.  The question receiving widest approval Twas the matter  of a lunchroom or cafeteria for Elphinstone. Even the  board agreed it would be a good thing and suggested the  hall occupied by the meeting wotilcl bethe best place  for it; <'.'-���".'���.���' 7 i/; '���".���: :,:������   -  It was not possible to ascertain how rriany of the  audience came from the Sechelt area arid there did not  appear to be any bloc in the audience determined to get;  a Sechelt school across.���.���There were discussions on the  relative value of two schools- compared to that of one  school but the boards explsmajiib^ monetary situa-  tionvwhich meant 06^^:^:'i^^ei^^uni with tberpossi^  bilityTbf defeat had a cooling e___ctT 7  :^Fhe public should realize the school board has to  operate within limits laid down by the provincial department of education. It is also restricted by the budget within which it conducts its affairs.    '������?'  As regards insurance on the burned school, the insurance company is paying such* insurance for the replacement of the destroyed school on the land it occupied.  Therefore a school eonstructed' elsewhere is a matter of  new financing, something which the majority of taxpayers would not receive with jubilation.  If you separate what you want from what you can  get wider the circumstances and realize the board is faced  with an existing situation and not as.some people would  like it, you should fee! inclined to support the board. It  still has to make its final decision and what that will be  depends on how the votes fall when the trustees reach  that point.  When the board gets to a point of taking a vote it  has before it now the motion of August 9 meeting which  authorized the architects to prepare plans for a secondary  school for approximately 550 with provision for a second  phase for approximately 300 students. Some trustees are  in an uncomfortable position. Right now it is anybody's  guess how they will vote.  5-10-20 years ago  Five Years Ago  Garry Helmer was elected  president of the Kinsmen club  in Sechelt and Maurice Girard,  Gibsons president.

In her address to Elphinstone S-condary, school's graduation "'-class.��� 7; at Saturday  night's graduation fraction  Mrs.- Cloe D-ty, rambled back'  ,25 years and informed' the  graduates of early school days  in Gibsons. Her notes reveal ~  the following:  In some respects and to  some degree, the high school  is right back where it was 25  years ago. Mr. Montgomery,  thought it might be interesting to take a quick look at the  history of our secondary school  Where did we come from? And  where are we going?  In 1948 the only high school  in School District 46 consisted  of two rooms. Mr. Trueman  Was Principal and I was his  staff. That building behind and  beyond the Maintenance shop,  now called The Paint Shop,  was Mr. Trueman'�� classroom.  It had been the old Legion  Hall (and what is now the  _��� OLD Legion Hall was then  the NEW Legion Hall). The  school board had acquired the  building and moved it just  here to the road edge of this  school grounds. Under the lower side Of the Maintenance'  shop is a small basement  which was my classroom. It  currently has a pink door I  believe.  As I remember class sizes,  we had 30 grade nine students  and 6 grade 12. Mr. Truemah's  classroom was big enough to  accommodate that ��� many; so  he enrolled grades 9 and 12.  There were only 19 students in  grades 10 and 11, and by snuggling a little we could fit them  into the little basement where  I.enrolled those grades. Grade  8 was still part of elementary  school, housed then in the old  Elementary school building  which I.believe is being used  now for \ high school 4.math .  classes. l sr  The    present     Maintenance  shop was then known  as the  Women's   Institute   Hall.   We  had the use of it for a gym.  Washroom   facilities   were   in  the  Elementary   school   basement.   Our    only   playground  area was that just beyond the  old    Elementary    school,    and  sometime  during that year a  bulldozer came and levelled it.  I recall that many of our gym  classes were spent in forming  chain-gangs  to pick rocks off  it and smooth it So'"that-;we  could lay out a ball diamond.  We had to stagger break periods   and   gym   classes   with  those of the Elementary school  so  that we  could  all  have a  turn at facilities.  . I'm sure you can recognize   ,  some similarities in  the  situation   of   that   time   and   the  current   juggling   for   use   of  over-lapping   facilities.   There  were differences, however. One  big one (apart from numbers  of   students'   and   quality   of  .'  buildings)   was   that   students  did not scuttle from building  to building  as they do now.  You remember our classes had  been fitted to the space available; At the end of a period,  .  Mr. Trueman would step out  the door and ring an old handbell* which was the signal for  teachers to pack up books arid  lesson plains and dash across to  the ioth!er building. He would  come ' to    teach    maths    and.  sK-ence to  my  group  while 1  went    to    teach    English    or  socials or something to his.  Another great difference was  in   the   roads   or   trails   from  room   to   room.   School   road  was   then   called   Rocky   road   '   ���  ���  and  it  was.   I'm not  sure   ,  -whether   the . highiWay    was   .  known as mucky road or not,  but  it  coujld have been). The  ditches were not covered then  and for part of each year were  much like the dMch in front of  the   MJaintenance   shop   after  our flood last December. We  (Lajid logs across ditches as  bridges and did some fancy  balancing on our not-aLways-  ..successful journeys across. But  we had' no "traffic to dodge.  The building j list below the  present d__ftriet library was at  one time a store in the front  section, living quarters in the  east wing, and a coffee bar lithe  west  or  upper wing.   By  1948 both the store and coffee  bar had gone out of business,  so I rented the coffee bar and  turned   it   into   my   dtwelling.  The store with its large storefront windows was empty. By  the fall of '49 enrolment had  increased  to  the  extent  that  we had to find another classroom. Mr. Goostrey joined' the  staff and the old store became  his room.  By the next school year we  had addled Mrs. Glassford  (part time) and Mrs. Faulkner  to the staff and used1, I believe,  a basement room in the elementary' school'. In addition the  board had moved an oldl, original one-room school building (one built in 1890) on- to  the lower part of the back of  this school ground., and.it became a classroom.. It was a  temporary measure and! the  building, was not on a foundation. It sagged and swayed.  We used it in part for typing  classes, but we had! to spend  the first of each period balancing   up   tables  with   bits   of  (board so that typewriters  would not scoot c_f. T_ien,v because the room was also used  for other classes, we had to  spend the last few minutes of  each period' - picking up our  typewriters and storing them  on shelves in what had1 originally been the cloak room.  Our school population growth  during that early period must  have exceeded that of any  -time since on a percentage  basis because by the fall of  H951 we had addled another  claissroom teacher in Gibsons,  and had a three room high  sohool in  Sechelt under Mrs.  Rankin with Mr. Peterson and  Mrs. Pearson on her staff. Jn  addition we had two travelling teachers, a/shop man and  a Home Ec. lady who spent  part of each week with Gibsons classes and part in Sechelt  They must have used the  first term for teaching ideas,  theory,, pattern making/' drafting,. recipes and whatever  could be done without the  tools. Finally in February of  1952 we all moved together  into the shining, elegant, new  Elphinstone. At that time the  school consisted of the west  wing only, from the main entrance up to the shop which  was much smaller then ��� a  small drafting  room and  one  (Continued on Page 3)  Sunshine Coast Regional District  COURT of REVISION  ELECTORAL LISTS AREAS A, B,C, D, E & F  A Court of Revision to correct and revise the electoral lists for Areas A, B, C D, E and F of the Regional District will sit at the District Office Davis  Bay, 10:00 a.m., Monday, October 1st.

Some  where along the way, grades  7 and 8 were transferred to the  high school and we were bursting at the seams again. We  added the next w__g down to  ino-ud- the art room and language lab. A few years later  came the extension of the shop  and the addition of the library  above what had been built  for a cafeteria but had become  a typing room almost immed-  ; iately. '7'  i Even the transferrail of  Grade 7 back to the elemenc-  ary schools did not give us a  reprieve for long; and for two  years we had little prefabs  scattered around oh the  grounds to give us classrooms  _or the overload. So then we  added -a Commerce wing, followed by a Music wing, and  the new Science lab. And you  know that last year We .were  in need of more room ���more  shop, more science, and more  gym. That gym, which had  been more than adequate when  we moved to it with about 250  students, had! been far from  adequate lonig before we reached the 700 enrolment figure.  And now it has gone up in  smoke, at least, the bigger part  of it. And where do we go  from here? It is a controversial question, with proposals  and counter - proposals flying  all over the place. I overheard  one conversation at a coffee  table in the bakery where one  of you ��� I think, at least an  ex-student ��� said, 'I don't  care what they do. I'm through  school.'  And that brings me to a  brand new topic. You DO care.  I feel sure that many of you  were right there on that fiery  day this summer doing your  utmost to save any part of  Elplhinstone. And your care is  not just a sentimental one  either ��� not just an 'oh-dh-  my-dear-oldKElphie^ kfnd o_  care. The kind of education we  have in this district, this province, this country, the whole  world, matters' very much to  all of us. I'll bet two cents that  ever so many of you, during  your high school years, have  done some fuming and storming about students' rights. And  you have heard much fuming  and storming about taxpayers'  rights, parents' rights, tenants'  rights, individual rights, the  Bill of Rights. It is a topic of  current concern, and I am  concerned, very concered, with  what I consider a whittling  away of the rights of people.  (As time and space does not  allow the completion in this  issue of Mrs. Day's notes for  her address the remainder, in  which she develops her discussion on rights will appear in  this space next week).  Time running out  Witnesses say  Time is running out for  mankind. Earth's problems can  only be understood through  the eyes of the Bible writers,  Ernest Funk, B.C. spokesman  for Jehovah's  witnesses says.  North Vancouver's Recreation Centre, Sept. 8 and 9 hosted the first of a series of province -wide two day circuit  conventions. Plans were concluded for a massive 10 day  pamphlet   distribution.  Visitors to the convention  Were encouraged to share in  a Bible study program with  local witnesses and see for  . them-selyes that the Bible has  the' only solution for man's  critical situation. Peak attendance of 1,604 heard Mr. Ernest  Funk of Toronto deliver the  highlight public address Sunday entitled Act Wisely as the  End Draws Near.

The maximum  individual   purchase   will   remain at $50,000, and the bond-  may be acquired only by bona  fide residents of Canada  and  by estates of deceased persons.

W. CHICHESTER  This letter has been sent to  Mrs. Agnes Labonte, Chairwoman of the Board of School  Trustees of School District 46,  Gibsons.  Dear Mrs. Labonte: Allow  me to thank you, and through  you the other board members,  for scheduling the public meeting at Elphinstone on Sept. 20.  As a Sechelt parent, I went  to the meeting believing that a  junior secondary school should  be constru'eted at "our" end of  the school district. I had reached this conclusion after attempting to summarize (to myself) what has been written  and said on the subject. My experiences as a student at Elphinstone when it was first'  opened, also had a bearing on  my thinking.  i have changed my mind.  The best decision the board  could, reach, for the students,  is to reconstruct a better Elphinstone. The public meeting  allowed a cross-section of the  parents to air their views, and  (hopefully) listen to the views .  of others. It was hearing other  views during and after the  meeting that changed by mind.  For example, I objected to the .  thought my children would be  leaving home so early, and arriving   home  late   because   of  VILLAGE OF GIBSONS  1973-74 List of Electors  COURT OF REVISION  Take notice that the first sitting of the Court of Revision to revise and correct the 1973/74 List of Electors for the Village of Gibsons will be held at the  Municipal Hall 1490 South Fletcher Road,\ Gibsons,  B.C. at 9:30 a.m. on MONDAY, OCTOBER 1, 1973,  and shall continue to sit if requisite from day to  day until the list has been corrected and revised.

It was a Gibsons parent that pointed out  since her children had to walk,  they left home within 15 minutes of when the bus would  leave my. home.  A large, well equipped; Elphinstone will be best for all  the students. By well equipped, I do not just mean in the  classroom. Mr. McLeod's point  about a school Which is designed to provide a congenial at-v  mosphere for education is well >  taken. Why not? The students  are at school for a better part  of the day. In my opinion; this  should include a cafeteria (not  just a lunch room), adequate  study rooms, and space for extra-curricular items sulch as  clubs. ;.v-v/7.'7.  As a by-product, theseV. facilities would' encourage their  use by the public generally. I  feel the board should, in fact,  encourage such., usage.  Now, as a Sechelt parent, I  raise a concern of parents from .  "our  end", of the  school  district. Under present bus schedules, our children would be unable to make use of many 0-  the extra facilities available to  one  large  school.   I  therefore 7  feel strongly that an in-diepth:  study of. school transportation,,  should go hand in 7hand withJ  the re-construction Of Elphiri-  stpne. A vastly improved bus  schedule   from   the   s c ho pi  through to Sechelt is what is  needed to make the school^^ fully usable by all the students.  I realize the cost of am expanded bus schedule must be  considered by the board. However, I am sure that this cost  would be less than those of  adequately running a second  sohool in the Sechelt area.  When the difference in initial  construction costs are considered, the transportation costs are  even more insignificant.  Also the administrative problem at the school would increase but are they more important than the proper supervision and education of our  children? I think not.  In summary then, my opinion is that this is our opportunity for a well equipped  school to be re-coristruoted at  Elphinstone, but that a greatly expanded transportation  schedule be instituted so that  all the students can equally  participate in the school activities.      ���R. W. McKIBBIN  The Secretary,  Sunshine Coast Regional Board  Davis Bay, BjC.  It would1 seem the Regional  board has put itself into a very  compromising position in relation to the Chapman Creek  watershed area, a position  which, by itself, it is unable to  resolve.. ..  Another -gate has appeared  on the TWest Ro_u_;.of7the7Wil-  son Creek logging roads, placed there by Jackson Brothers  Logging with the blessing of  the   Regional   Board1.   A   sign  Which proclaims   that  this  is  now a restricted area and that  trespassers will be prosecuted  by the Regional board makes  this abundantly clear.  During the latter part of  last year an area was-logged  at the far end of the West road  but the logs were not brought  out due, presumably, to; the  lateness of the season. We were  told at the time that this was  the extent of the logging to be  allowed in this area.  _;Since the new gate was installed we find that the logging operation has started with  renewed vigor. It would seem  to be too much of a coincidence  that this should start immediately after so called unauthorized' people were barred on the  ground that this was a watershed and as such should be  protected.  Last year the Regional board  approved on O.F Y. scheme to  establish a trail into the Chapman Lake area at a cost of  about $4,000 of taxpayers',  money. The trail has now been,  well established and has been  well used by people who enjoy  hiking and back packing. There  is no garbage or litter to be  found and this fact alone would  give some indication of . the  sort of people using the trail,  people who appreciate their  surroundings and do not wish  to spoil them in any way.

The  board must have known last  year when the OK -was given  for the trail that this was a  recognized watershed so why  the change of heart? One of  the directors went to see what  was happening for himself and  said that as far as he could  tell no logging should be going on in the creek area but;  that the Regional board was  powerless to stop it themselves.  There would appear to be  so many inconsistencies in this  matter that could stand study  by someone removed from the  Regional' board or the logging  industry and the idea of this  letter is to open the door to  discussion and to introduce  some of the facts as known to  the public at large in order  to get some dialogue going.  It should be pointed out that  this letter does not set out to  criticize individuals but rather to question the system  which allows such things as  this to happen.  ���J.  HINIXSMITH.

And that future is a promising one, indeed. We are alive.  Modern medicine and science  are making great strides forward. Leisure time is becoming  an important facet of life. But  most important, we have our  hopes and ambitions. As long  as we each have something to  look forward to, eagerly, for  tomorrow, and for the next  day, and! for ten years from  now, then there is reason to be  alive; there is true meaning  to our existence on this earth  Admittedly, some of us may  not attain the goals we have  now set for ourselves; but we  are flexible. "Of course we will  suffer disappointments. But we  can, and will, change our goals  if we are not pleased with the  way our lives are going.  As we look out towards the  world that not so anxiouisly  awaits us, we can see headlines  that tell of hate, of inflation, of  pollution, and of letter bombs.  But, somehow, these do not  seem to worry us. We live in  one of the finest countries in  the world. And even with all  its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, the world is still  a beautiful place. Our parents  and teachers have given us the  basic tools to make it an even  better place to live in.  School has produced many  memories. At school we have  had both' good and bad experiences. Many of these experiences will be remembered for  years to come and even put to  practical use during our lifetimes. We each have met many  different people and many different kinds of people. Some  have become our closest friends  It is popular to joke - about  graduation and say, "Well, I  finally madie it through the  grind. It sure is nice to get out  of   that  prison."   But  I  think  I  I  1  I  I  BLOOD  CUNIC  FridayrOct. 5/1973  2:30 to 5 and 6:30 fo 8:30 p.m.  GIBSONS HEALTH CENTRE  SPONSORED BY GIBSONS KINSMEN CLUB  8     Ooast News, Sept. 26, 1973  that, deep down, every one of  us gradls is saddened by the  fact that we are leaving these  happy times behind us now.  Yes, we will have our memories. And, for the graduating  class of 1973, that statement 'is?  particularly true. We are in the  unusual situation of having no  material object to form the  basis for our memories. There  will be a nice shiny new school  eventually, but it will not be  ours. In the years to come,  when we thing of Elphie, we  will think of that good old  two storey thing with the stucco walls, the crowded corridors  the wooden locker��, and the  dusty old gymnasium whose  floor was almost slick enough  for an ice arena.  Most certainly on behalf of  , my fellow gradls, I would lik_  now to convey our deepest appreciation to all the teachers  we have had throughout our  school years and to Mr. Montgomery and Mr. Grant, and  especially to convey our most  sincere and heartfelt thanks  to our own wonderful parents  for having given us such a  fine start in life.

Firstly there is no such thing  under our law as an interim  agreement. Either there is a  contract or there is not a contract. There is no half-way :  step or cooling off period.  Secondly, do not sign any document dealing with anything  as important as the sale of  . land without legal advice.  Better still, if you are the  buyer, have the documents  drawn by your lawyer, he will  make a land registry search.  First check the state of the  title and advise you of the  dimensions of the lot as appearing in the land registry  records and of the existence of  such things as a right-of-way  for a power line or sewer or  the right of the municipality  to take a portion of the land  for a lane allowance.  If you decide to use a lawyer  engaged by the real estate  firm, make sure you. and not  the real estate firm are his  clients. Make sure you only are  paying his fee. In this way he  will be Obliged to advise you  and you only. Your interest  and the interest of the seller  and the interest of the real  estate firm are not the same  and a lawyer cannot act for  more than one pkrty who have  a conflict of interest.  Generally -the buyer pays  the lawyer- fees and land registry- fees, and the seller pays  the real estate commission. A  wise; seller will consult his  own lawyer. There is usually  "very' little for the seller's :  lawyer to do. He merely  checks the documents as  drawn by the buyer's lawyer  and the fee for this is generally small.

Shopping list  advice offered  One good rule to follow in  preparing your shopping list  is to go through the newspaper  adis   and  check   the   specials.  Try to shop in an organized  fasfliion and exercise caution  in filling your food basket. As  you go down the aisles systematically, note the location of  certain foods. Knowing your  way around a store is the best  method of saving time and  possibly money. If you have  to look ,in every aisle to find  what you want, your attention  will1 be caught by other things  often resulting in impulse  buying. '  Before you pick up any food  product, be sure to check the  label. Read it carefully to find  out the name and description  of the product, the name and  address of the packer or distributor, the brand name, the  - grade mark ( Canada Choice  canned tomatoes or Canadla  No. 1 potatoes ), the net  weight or volume, and a list  of ingredients in descending  order of their proportions in  the product.  Note   other   information   on  the label such as storage instructions,   direction  and  recipes for use, number of servings and expiry date for using  the product. If unit pricing is  available,   use   it.   Otherwise,  compare prices by dividing the.  quantity,   usually   in   ounces,  into the price, to get the price  per-ounce  of the  product. To  help  you in your comparison  shopping,   why   not   order   a  handy pocket size Consumer's  Cost  Calculator available  for  75    cents    from    Information  Canada; Ottawa, K1A OS9.
