(Continued on Page 7)  Upper highway preferred  Sechelt's council prefers the  upper highway converging on  Sechelt to keep through traffic off village roads.  This was" the concensus of  Mayor Harold Nelson and aldermen. They preferred the  upper road because a new  middle road through Wilson  " Creek 'and Selma Park would  converge with the " present  through highway.  The���issue came up when  council discussed with Peter  Hoemberg, regional board plan  ner, Sechelt's planning need��.  Council favors the continuation of the board's planning  services to council.  The February meeting of  the Regional board, showed  preference for the upper level  Onghway instead of a middle  road, which in the .Sedhelt  area would come off the present highway at Rat Portage  hill and continue through Davis Bay and Selma Park at a  midway level. The upper leyel  highway would approach Se-  chelst close to the B.C. Hjydiro  power line, and keep through  traffic from the downtown section of Sechelt.  Another problem involving  planning covers the need for  industrially zoned land close  to Sedhelt. Council has agreed  it has no such land available  within its confines and now  seeks to have the regional  planner Jine things up so there  will be some' industrial land!  available bordering the village  ' Mr. Hoemberg explained  that,,what council would have  to do is to rethink the total  structure of the Sechelt region  and which direction planning  should go. He said the Indian  band was working on a master  plan and were seeking close  co-operation. As there would  be some overlapping between  the Regional, Reserve and village areas planning should  work from both ends of the  area.  Aid. Norman Watson moved  and council agreed that the  services of the Re^onal board  planner be sought for the village on the 1973 part time  basis.  ^b-tirfcftf  ->He added-that witfr tKat ar-  rai-gement he did not feel it  was necessary to make additional arrangements .with any  other firm or group in the Se-  chelt-Giibsons area. If council  ���wants" to ��� continue "providing  this service he would be inclined to give it favorable consideration.  Aid. Winston Robinson found  the letter implied council had  provided the service. Aid. Ted  - Hume explained council assumed the service to help the  public in Gibsons area and1 it  would be a disservice to the  public if it was dropped.  Aid. Kurt Hoehne recalled  council had offered the motor  vehicle branch office space.  Mayor Larry Labonte with  council's consent decided' to  write the branch a letter outlining council's desires and see  what the branch would db  about it.  School Rd. and Highway 101  drainage, before council via  letter from engineer Martin  Dayton, is going to cost more  due to inflation. The September, :_973 cost was $16,750 but  now the cost could hit $19,50(X  This ���would increase the department of highways share  from $4,900 to $5,650. The actual final cost will not be  known until tenders are called  in April.  WINDOWS   SMASHED  . About 4:55 Sunday afternoon  .RCMP answered a call on a  disturbance on Marine Drive  at the Bal Block. Two plate  glass windows were smashed  by rocks, one at the Laundkie-  mat and the other at the 5-10-  15, cents store. Police arrested  Gregory Iiemky. He will face  a .court charge.

Gibsons  Village Voters As-  associafion, meeting _1_i_ra__f_y,  - March- 21- in the Elementary  ' School library commencing at  8 p.m:  ���   <   <  V. H. Eckstein, chairman of  the Voters Association in his  letter stated'' he had received  a   number  of  complaints   regarding the operation and condition as things now exist at  Gibsons wharf. In particular he  wants to know about" the number of people and their animals now livif-g permanently  on their boats, tied up there.  The Voters Association seeks  to know the facts on the village part in running the wharf  and the amount of authority it  has orl does not have to cori-  .trol  conditions  there.  Council  decided to be  represented  at  the Voters meeting. v  Elphie 600 pupil plans approved  Word was received Tuesday  that the school board can proceed with its plans on Elphinstone 600 plus " pupil school.  The department has asked that  the plans be sent to it immediately to allow the calling  for,, tenders within the next  few weeks.  Stehool. board trustees are  disturbed over the delay created in Victoria on the go  ahead signal for construction  of the 600- pupil Elphi-istone  school.  This delay, discussed at Monday night's meeting of the  board has resulted in a 12 percent increase so far in the cost  of replacing the former school  destroyed by fire.  Board chairman Mrs. Agnes  Labonte and the boards,' augmented by- new Trustee Mrs.  Celia Fisher, heard. Trustees  Peter Prescesky and Pat Murphy outline ' the financing of  the new construction. The  plans for the new buildinfe!  prepared by K. Uyeyama were  gone over with him and approved resulting in the board  seeking a speeding up of action in Victoria.  Chairman Mrs. Labonte said  the delay was not understandable as the facts have been in  department hands for more  than one month. Further delay would not ease the situation, she said-  Trustee Pat Murphy reported the earlier construction figure of $1,540,000 had now  reached! $1<,721,000, a difference  of $1��1,000. This would increase further if action is delayed' .too long, he added.  From what the board gathered the delay in Victoria appears to be tied in with a new  set of rules which the minister  of education, Mrs. Eileen Dailly, has promised to place before the house.

Don't forget! Action counts!  The proposed new highway once again has become  the subject of today's news. Readers well remember 4)he  lengthy and heated discussion which resulted  in the  production of a proposed upper highway from the Langdale ferry terminus to carry traffic past Gibsons north  of the village thus reducing traffic within the village.  pFhis conception was approved by the majority of  residents. Now the roads department is considering a  middle route .of short length instead from Hat Portage  hUl, running behind Wilson Creek and Davis Bay then  through Selma Park area tying in with the highway at  Sechelt. This does not appeal to the Regional board nor  Sechelt's council. Both have in mind a through road  which would relieve traffic in both villages.  ������������'������^';���'.:���-The proposed highway through Selma Park would  ��� tie in with the grid system outlined roughly at the time  of the main highway proposal. Now it appears the roads  department is involved in the grid system as a basis for  secondary roads.  The Regional board has reached the conclusion the  niiddle road is "unnecessary and has termed the upper  route to be highly desirable. Two through routes, the existing Highway 101 and the proposed upper fast route  should be sufficient for expected traffic, in the board's  view. '.'.',".;. Y'  7 7 'Thfe/upper route, which the planning committee jfa-  fors; will quickly generate its own traffic and the road  will ppen new areas for development. On thisi basis the  board, which accepted the planning committee report,  will arrange for a meeting yrith Hon. G. R. Lea, minister  of highways, to press for the upper route rather than  One between the present highway and the proposed higher level. The committee stresses that speed was of essence with this matter as detailed planningbf thehiiddle  route was already underway.  7 It will be interesting to f ind Out whether the general  public is of the same opinion. So if you dp not like the  middle road idea express your opinion whichever way  you like. You can write 1b^^  l��rf^ to the editor or work Jthrough any organization  ^pu beilong to and have it egress an opinion. Whatever  you decide don^t forget it. Action counts.  Music Festival big success       shoWS increase  "77,-       ' ' '   :���    '���'������'-������:   '';'���"'��� 7-^~ Y-'-.'YY' ;-  Gibsons Kiwanis club Music Festival committee  deserves high praise for its work in giving pur youth a  ichance to vdisplay their proficiency in the various arts,  from elocution to music. 7  The event is described as the first annual and there  as strong hope now there will be a second annual event.  The Kiwanis gave George Cooper the job of getting it on  the road. He praises all of his helpers.  It is a, pity one person was not able to take in all the  events. They were scattered among various points on the  iSunshine Coast therefore one could not take them all in.  However, the Kiwanis gave the students who entered  a chance to display their capabilities before an adjudicator who was capable of assessing the value of their  work.    '    Y  Wherever the adjudicator, Mrs. Phyllis Schuldt apr  peared she left an excellent impression and there is reason why, at the last session, she was given an ovation.  She was invited to return for next year's festiyal.  The members of the public and also the club deserve  their ovation too and if this editorial suffices the Coast  News is pleased to be able to offer it.  5 to 25 years ago  By BRUCE WILSON  I took a walk the other day  with my 'power', and he showed me how to remember the  hopes of a six-year old who  lived at the bottom of the hill  by the Co-op store, where the  fuel-oil tanks stand now reeking tombstones of progress. v  - We remembered he and I  how it was after a storm; plow  ing thru the new-mown pebbles oi\ the beach; siphoning  the energy of fresh salt air;  towing a sack of bark and  drift-wood homeward to warm  the wood-stove kitchen. ;  Or sitting in the church yard  on the corner shaded by 80  odd years of holly trees  brought west and planted by  a wandering pioneer following  the new laid steel road to the'  setting sun. Eighty years -' of  shade and growth torn down  in an instant for a concrete,  pill-box; stinking out-house  baking in the midday sun.  They were all bought and  paid for by pur fathers. Every  tree, every orchard, every inch,  of  cleared land paid  for in *  sweat and tears and life-times.  Bought with hope and promise  that their children would not  live in slums, nor cities; but  peaceful   communities.   Ideals  they fought for and paid for  dearly -  are they to be cast  aside   like   yesterdays  under- ,  wear?  They didn't want a community where only the landowners can vote; where success is counted in houses and  cars. They didn't want their  beautiful harbour despoiled,  clustered with high-rises, polluted to a point where even  the fish don't return. They  didn't want the natural beauty  destroyed so more roads could  be pushed to more peoples  ���front and back doors. Hotw?  stupid to have two roads to  one house. I'm sure they'd say.

The same land of whidi Chief  Sitting Bull said, if I cannot  - walk free upon the land; if I  cannot lie upon it and feel its  warmth and nearness; if I  cannot touch the earth, I am  as well dead.  In this same spirit did  Grandpa Gibson and his clan  live with the land, taking only  what they needed and returning all they could And in time  his spirit caught my father  and probably yours ��� calling  them to leave their secure city  wombs and return into the  relative wilderness. - Then  somewhere along the way a  great change took,, place. Perhaps it was the great depression leaving people shivering  in its wake, dtesparate to make  money.  Ushering in the Great Mon  ey Syndrome was the need to  create jobs. People were desperate and only too glad to  get work whether tearing, upland to create roads or cutting  . down every tree, from Port  Mellon to Earl's Cove. They  didn't .give a damn. Society  said money- was essential to  survival and the desire to survive they did, at the; expense  of many a stream, forest arid  wildlife supporting area, driving the most logical foodlstocks  further away.  How could they know, these  cold, lonely, scared city boys?  Who was there to show them  what harm they were doing?  Could they have heard thru  their fears the beginning of an  ecological avalanche? And if  they heard, how many, would  realize what the effects would'  be now, 40 years later? One)  in a hundred I would guess  and powerless to speak out.  Here our British, Christian  culture begins, to make its forays into Sunshine "Coast culture, here I should say ,this'  ethnic group takes over as the  power to. reckon with. Never  mind the native people, of the  coast, the Indians as they are  referred to. Why they don't  even have a common written  language, pay them a pittance  and let's hear no more from  these savages.

It's only rough on the   *  reckless driver. And so it should be.  A driver's premium is the only fair way of splitting the cost of insurance over all drivers  whether or not they actually own a vehicle. Drivers bear a responsiblity both legally  and financially for .their actions.  just like fire insurance or life insurance, the good risks pay (ess than the poor ones.  Cautious drivers don't have accidents like reckless ones do, so the speeders, the illegal  turners, the light runners are going to have to pay more. A lot more. After all, fair is fair.  So watch it. Because it's very expensive to be a reckless driver.  The basic annual driver's certificate premium is $10.00 and this premium increases  dramatically for peopleyytthsix or,more.points on their current;driving record..,-.      - .3  Remember, three points per year are deducted from the current driving record for  offences committed more than one year ago. Below is a table of driver's certificate  premiums.  .$x  Premium Point Chart  3-year demerit  Minimum 12-fnonth  Demerit points  Total 12-month  point lecoid  premium  premium  premium  5 points or less  $10  $-  $10  6 points  10  36  46  ,  7 points          ^  10  49  59  ' .8 points  10  64  74  '         9 points  10  81  91  10 points  10  100  110  . 11 points  10  121  131    -N  12 points  10  144  154         -  13 points  10  169  179  14 points  10  196  206    .

The ones who could be  ���bought (taught the value of  money) were tolerated and  encouraged to rape the land  for your--.profit.; Those who  ���wanted no part of your money  system were pushed off the  choice lands, denied their religions and harassed till they  ha_ ho, choice but to acquiesce.  Let us not pay forever for the  mistaikes once hiade by a few  self-righteous individuals.  Let's not keep supporting  the Great Money Syndrome  which has (been and could continue to be the most destructive force oh earth, A governing body must be responsible  to the needs of the people?  basically - food, clothing, and  shelter. Is it right to price  land so high' and tax it so  steep that only a few can afford it and then allow these  ���people to either lease it to lie  unused or to strip it bare and  destroy, every bush or blade  of grass upon it? When I and  thousands like me would like  ' nothing: more than to be allow  ed to live on this land and encourage it to produce.  Aren't we indeed still living.  under  federal   tyranny  when  a man cannot go off into the  woods and erect a simple cabin to  live  in because MacMillan and  Bloedei  or  some  other   corporation   has  rights  that are backed by our govern  ment against us, the common  folk,  the   greatest  proportion  of voters.YDs this injustice to  be tolerated so that we may  have five or six different col-  '    brs end brands of toilet paper  or is it so we can have 80  pages of advertisements in our  Sunday papers? Is it not time  to bring our world back into  perj_pectivev  to   quit   riptping  and tearing at our earth and  start putting back into it some  love and: appreciation?  ���   My   grandfather   like   Mr.  Gibson came to British Columbia because he saw a land  of plenty; he took only what  his family could use and gave  of himself to make, this land  productive. He was a man of  v;_imple   needs   who. intejadejd  his people to live comfortably  in this manner until there was  no  one left to continue  his  line. He used only iihe deadfall and rotten wood for his  'fires;  selectively cutting mature trees   when   he   heeded  lumber for buildihg. Occasionally he would take a grouse,  a fish, or a deer to stock his  larder but mainly the family  lived on what he grew in his  garden.  Dried leaves or pages trom  ' the    annual   catalogue   were  good enough for his behind as  was   the  one-hole  which   he  sat on. In short he lived an ex*  .eiriplary ah_ beneficial life in  an  ecological sense, and ;was  Awarded in the end by naving  what   meager   holdings  were  his wrested' from him through  inheritance   and   tax   hassles,  legal fuss and countless dung  heaps  of   red  taped  bureaucratic! nonsense. No longer can  I stand aside while men like t  these are stamped on unmercifully in the name of making  a fast buck by unscrupulous  money-grubbers.  Too long have I been a mem  ��� ber    of    the  make-no-waves  fringe   elements   hoping   tlhe  capitalists    would    ease    off  peacefully. 'Silently I have sat  aware that, for instance Port  Mellon pulp mill uses' 25 million gallons of water per day  in their process1 and has blocked their fish, ladder during  spawning season so that they  could meet their quota; and  that McNab Creek Logging  Division of Canfor has several  times hauled and logged across  spawning grounds in major  creeks and has in fact entered  the creeks with bulldozers and  ���front-end loaders and. taken  the gravel out of the actual  spawning beds for road construction in order to save a  few bucks, hauling costs.  I have watched good timber  being left on the ground because someone or another felt  it wouldn't pay to pick it up;  it is subsequently burnt during slash clearing process. I  have watched them log stands  of immature timber simply because they owned the. rights  to it; I have seen gravel, test  drill holes on the flats at the  mouth of a creek - one of the  few really good bird nesting  areas on that part of the coast  - to be dlestroyed of. course  should a gravel pit be put into'  production.. And I have become sick and furious during  it all.  It seems the government a-  gencies in these cases by their  silence and their failure to enforce effective control me_-  sures are in effect condoning  this sort of behaviour on the  part of the large companies.  You have backed uis into a  torner, world, me, and mine,  and left us no choice but to.  come out fighting. Fight we  must and fight we will, in the  tourts, on the streets^ where-  ever and whenever we can  strike most, effectively.

Surely they can find something better to beef about.  n. I have been iii said cafe  countless times when the crew  have come in and at the very  most,they might be in there  15 min.

Editor: The terrible fire we  had in Gibsons, Feb!. 23 shoulid  make us all aware of what  could happen, if those Shell  gas tanks -were to be ignited.,  Either a fire wall should be  built or tanks moved.

The . consequences of high density planting on the health of plants as  well as on the yield and quality of the crop, are being ex}-  amined by Agriculture Canada scientists.  During the height of the  snowfall at 10:50 Thursday  morning the emergency truck  of the fire department was  called out for a heart case at  Gibsons Medical Clinic. The  man managed to reach the  clinic but the difficulty was in  getting him to St. Mary's Hos-  ' pital owing to road conditions.  The>. emergency truck of  Gibsons Volunteer Fire De-  , partment was called on to do  the job. With the aid of Gibsons and Sechelt RCMP it. conveyed the patient to the hospital on a trip over a highway  which could be described- as  precarious.  Here are some highlights of  the heavy snowfall. It ranged  from Port Mellon and beyond  to the Pender Harbor region  with the lesser fall occurring  Watson fights on  Aid. Norman Watson in his  continued dlrive for a public  library in Sechelt to cover the  Sechelt Fire Protection District sought the support of Sechelt's council.  He informed Sechelt council  that with 65 percent of the use  of the library by people outside Sechelt he sought the aid  of the Regional District board  which turned him down not  having that function among  its capabilities. After outlining the position to Sechelt's  council he decided he would  write a letter to a library  authority in Victoria and see  what could be done.  towards Pender Harbor.  Port Mellon recorded at  least two feet. Gibsons and  Langdale areas closer to a  foot. Outside the Coast News  office nine inches was measured.  The fall was about the same  towards Halfmoon Bay wttiere  it started to taper off in the  Pender Harbor area.  Traffic was stalled mainly  on the Rat Portage Hill in vicinity of the Girl Guide Camp  also on other hills. Traffic for.  the most part . could get  through from Gibsons to Sechelt but coming back to Gibsons Rat Portage Hill was.the  tieup spot where. buses and  trailers could not make the  grade.  RCMP at Gibsons and Sechelt reported mostly minor  accidents.  Travel from Port Mellon by  the / Thursday morning home-  bound shift-was stalled on the  long hill close to Port Mellofn.  The 8 a.m. homegoers reached  their homes after 1 p.m.  A    NORTHERN     DELICACY  1  Fruit growing in the wilds  of northern Alberta and adjacent areas may.form a basis  for developing small fruit industries, says an Agriculture  Canada scientist. He believes  some of these areas could go  into commercial picking of the  wild fruit in a manner similar  to ' the extensive wild blueberry harvests in Quebec and  the Maritimes which exceed  $3,000,000 annually.  23 bands merge  in move to get  return of lands  .Twenty-three bands from  throughout British Columbia  who lost land as a result of the  McKenna - MoBride Commission are forming a united  front to pursue claim settlements from the-B;C.

It was Ethel who heard Tim-  my _ plaintive bleatings above  the snarling and excited barkings of the pack on that before  dawn morning. By the time  Frank got on the scene armed  with a club, Timmy, his head  down and tangled in his long  tether, ringed.by 12 or more  town curs, as two German  black shepherds tore at the  goat's bloody flanks.  Frank gave chase to the  pack which scattered and returned to find Timmy in a  'bad way and unable to get  back on his feet. Buaenteogi -  managed to set the goat free  and dragged him to higher  ground, but not before the  pack returned intent on finishing the job. For a second time  Frank gave chase.  Meantime, the Nygren family, alerted by Mrs. Bizentson  rescued their pal. It took two '  men and a sling to load Timmy on the truck heading for  Dr. Perry'e animal hospital.  Here an injection of penicillin  and extensive suturing of both  sides was necessary to" repair  the damage.  Timmy is now back, home^  wary- of further attacks and  for added protection, is now  tethered closer to the house  under the ever-watchful eyes  of the Nygren boys.  Another    interesting     sidelight came out of the incident,  ...a&.JTimimy, .for- the first- time-.-  in all his six years, now toler-  , ates Clara.
