Board, council co-operate on water project  A combined operation between the Regional District  board and Gibsons council is  working on a $275,000 plan to  provide domestic water to the  Chaster Road - Gibsons  Heights area, based on a Dayton & Knight survey.  Following a progress meeting with representatives from  Gibsons and the Sunshine  Coast Regional District  (SCRD) water committee it  was agreed that a? brief study  would be completed for waterworks improvements and extensions in the Chaster Road-  Gibsons Heights area.  - The intention was to utilize  , the Chaster Road- well, the  Reed Road reservoirs, as well  as existing Gibsons and' SCRD  watermains. The service area  would be extended to include  areas between the Chaster  Road well and Pratt Road,  Reed Road, and possibly Cemetery Road.  The Dayton & Knight survey finds the Regional District currently supplies limited service to the lower end  of Pratt Road as far as Chas:  ter Road from a small pump  known as Rosamund Pumping station, on 22nd St. This  system' is inadequate for do-  mestir and fire demands  The Village of Gibsons sijp-  plies water to areas along tl|e  Sunshine Coast Highway __$��  along North, Pratt and Henr|r  Roads through a six inch lirijl  which is' deficient for fire demands. The Village also serve.,  a portion of Reed road using  a small diameter plastic pip4-  This system is inadequate.    '���  There is no water supply tithe rest of Reed Road, Cemetery Road and portions; of  Chaster Road. These areas  are now in need of water.

The. Regional District  also... owns the Chaster Road  well which was developed in  1969 but is currently capped  in. anticipation of need to put  it into service, the Dayton re-  port says. Y     7  The plan for supply to the  area is a further extension of  the 1974 Regional Plan B for  service to an Expanded 7ai*ea.  In that plan it was assumed  the Regional Chaster wrfl;Jand  Chapmarii Creek supply Would  be balanced by the existing  Gibsohs supply > arid ^voiild  help make up future predicted  shortages.

Wednesday  night of last week. Members  of the audience at the meeting in Sechelt Elementary  school queried the necessity  of having a voters list when  qualifications for election  were such that only a drivers  licence would be enough.  The meeting was called by  Derek Humphries, chairman  of the task force set up to organize a regional district under Bill 84. He outlined the  size of the proposed Regional  District which would have included Squamish area and the  Sunshine Coast. Those at the  Sechelt meeting favored going it on their own and* supported Squamish in adopting  a wait-and-see attitude.  Mr. Humphries found that  the Sunshine Coast was well  ahead of other districts in its  capability to produce a working committee. Local people  numbering close to 30 at the  Sechelt meeting did not think  the Sunshine Coast with its  population of YIO.OOO plus  would stand much chance  against populations up to 100,-  000 or more oh the North  Shore. See editorial page 2).  SNOOPY came to visit theCoast7 News office; last week. Accompanied by Legion mernbers Pat Quarry and George Fololws,  he was^collecting on behalf bf the-Minibus l^und.  blitz bursts over top  May  May raiilfeU totalled 4.78  inches and the 12 year average is 1.89 but in those 12  years the range ran from 0.78  in 1970 to 2.94 in 1962.  The high temperature was  63 degrees compared with 73  in 1971, 76 in 1972 and 80 in  1973. Overnight temperatures  dipped tb 37 compared with 38  in 1971, 43 in 1972 and 39 in  1973.  WOULD  YOU  BELIEVE  IT?  Three guesses are allowed  as to whOv won the Lions 400  club draw award last week.  If you have guessed Mayor  Larry Labohte you win. Guess  who niade the draw. Would  you believe lawyer Eric Thomson? Well it was he who made  the draw.  The one day blitz by the  Ladies. Auxiliary of the Royal  Canadian- Legion Branch '109  in Gibsons, put the Mini-Bus  Drive over the top. At press  time the exact amount was  not totalled; 'We know we got  over $1,000' said Mrs. Joan  Quarry; Snoopy was around  town during the day and evening helping the canvassers.  Mrs. Quarry said that the response to their drive was terrific;' ������''  The Transportation Fund  committee adds its thanks to  the auxiliary and all those  many people who helped, and  join the auxiliary irt thanking  the- good people of Gibscms.  : Mrs. Dorothy Greene of  Halfmoon Bay, put on an afternoon tea at her home, in  aid   of   the   Bus  on   iSunday,  May 26. The Fund realized  $100 from her efforts.  7;\V%eh'final \fibres are in  an audited statement will be  released. The drive is over  now, and the next sflep is to  oibtain the operating funds.  Mr. Joe Kampman, finance  chairman of the Sunshine  Coast Community Resource  Council (formerly S.C.C.C-  H.H.R.) has slated , a meeting  to deal with this.  The Transportation Fund  committee thanks individuals,  organizations, and businesses  ..of the .Sunshine Coast for  their magnificent support of  this drive. The committee  points out that the success of  this campaign could not have  been achieved without the  splendid co-operation of newspapers.  Indians plan demonstration  B.C. Indians have set aside  June 24 and 25 as days of celebration and demonstration: in  the province's capital.  On June 24, a mass gathering will be held on the Song-  hees Reserve just outside of  Victoria to celebrate surviving 100 years of "hostile  treatment." The next day, all  participants will trek into the  city where a peaceful demonstration will be held on the  lawns of the legislature to  protest major problem areas  of Indian people in B.C.  Although the demonstration  will be staged on the provin-  . cial legislative grounds, the  purpose of this demonstration  will be directed at the geno-  cidal policies of the governments and the elitist power  structure in Canada.  The eight grievances outlined are: Poor inadequate  homes; lack of positive action on Indian land claims;  94% dropout in education;  high percentage of Indians, in  prison; high unemployment;  unfair taxation by province;  lack of a true economic base  for reserves, and an end to  welfare oriented programs.  Gibsons    council   supported  ���by the^Regional District board  wiU; visit   the   highjways   de^-  partment in Victoria to offer  views oh the location of the  proposed upper levels highway  Gibsons council has decided  that the roads department is  working on. the Mayor Walter  Peterson idea they should not  go   through   the   water   field  which supplies Gibsons with  its domestic'water. This they  .want changed as. the council  has decided that "there is no  waterfield there- worth 'worrying about. Therefore the highway can be laid through the  field so  long as it compliesi  with normal roadbuilding procedures.  At, -last- Tuesday night-  meeting .of council, Mayor  Larry __abonte'and' the aldermen' decided that it was-about  time council "' informed the  roads department of the true'  facts ���concerning the watershed  wihich>the "former mayor was  protecting. ,  ^Regional board Area E. ad-  vispry > -planning commission  has informed .the'board and  ^courtc-flby letter.that'a num-  ber of residents in the Gibsons  Heights; area Kaye; heeni contacted by the. department of  - YYMgfcway^  V _to ,surveyYari 'a&__wiftbh_ -the  ?.f'prpposeA.: ,neytf~)3i&%w&y -from  .   .Langdale to-Gibsons*--This access would apparently involve  using    Gilmore  ' and  - Parks  -  Roads with a connection road  involving two -reverse curves  ..between  Cepnetery and Reed  Roads.' This portion of the access to Gibsons is not* favored  by the Gibsons Heights residents as:; ���    -  1. It causes considerable sev-  erence of property and pro-  ' duces another arterial road in  an area which presently has  sufficient main roads for ultimate, development. These  factors when considered- with  the limited advantage of this  scheme both to the travelling .  public and all of the residents  of the Gibsons area, indicate  . that this access, must be reconsidered.  " 2. It was the opinion of the  commission from the roads  study' conducted "hi 1973 that  accesses and additions to the  system. of local grid roads  would be reconsidered before  being finalized. We therefore  urge that the fpllbwirig measures be taken at this time:  a. The location of the main  highway should be finalized  "well beyond the Gibsons area  before any accesses or temporary cutoffs are decided upon  This will enable the best  choice of accesses to be made  not only for the present, but  for the future as /well.  b. Any accesses through the  Gibsons Heights area must  follow existing roads or easements, -ttiis procedure provides a number of suitable  alternatives such as Stewart  Road, North Road, Gilmour  Road to Reed Road or Payne  Road which could provide access to the village at a number of locations.  The area commission therefore urges that the Regional  board, Gibsons council arid  the department of highways  attempt to find a solution to  this situation by earnest negotiation. The commission  ���would further request that the  commission he allowed representatives to be present at  any meeting to remain fully  informed on this matter. Si   Coast News, June 5, 1974.

The Cox-imunity Resources Act, Bill No. 84 in the  legislature/has contentious sections which do not sit weE  in .the minds of people interested in the motives behind  the measure.  Wide powers for the minister, in using the word  "may" gives the minister of Human Resources, Hon. Norman Levy plenty of scope for the manipulation of power. In fact Gibsons meetings on the subject have shown  desire to see what the minister will do before they offer support.  The basis of the two bills, one for formation of Regional boards and the other to form Community boards,  is to set up organization which will look after all social  welfare at the public level. It will mean the organization  of a board in each community which will be responsible  to a Regional board. The Regional board which the Sunshine Coast would respond to would be a North Shore  board, covering the north shore, back to Squamish area  and also the Sunshine Coast.  Derek Humphries, chairman of the North Vancouver task force, after outlining whaf the subject covered,  found the Sunshine Coast people were well ahead of  other areas and had in fact ah established coriimittee  waiting for him. This committee now known as the Sunshine Coast Resources Committee, is simply a name  change for the former Sunshine Coast Council on Health  and Human Resources. '  This committee was well represented at the "public  meeting in Sechelt's Elementary school last Week and  after consideration decided it would follow the example  of the Squamish committee and adopt a 7wait and see  attitude.       ���,;/������'" .   'Y--;  Objection. was raised when it was realized that on  a population basis the Sunshine Coast would be allowed  one representative on the Regional board. This started  discussion on the disparity of population and its affect  on Sunshine Coast requirements/With more than 100,000  of population on the other side of Howe Sound what  could the 10,000 on the Sunshine Coast expect to obtain?  With the Sunshine Coast area being somewhat of an  island between two ferries any idea of travel to other  more populated centres would not be an advantage. So  ���the, matter now awaits further development of organization. Comment on the two bills reveals those interested' believe Hon. Mr. Levy faces considerable discussion  before these measures are passed by the legislature. As  far as the Sunshine Coast is concerned it is a complete  package in itself and to make it an adjunct of an area  with 10 or more times the population does not seem to  be the natural thing to do. Requirements of the more  than 100,000, population would most certainly override  the requirements of a 10,000 population.  5 to 25 years ago  Five Years Ago  Total rainfall for May 1969  was .1.33 and the normal 2.79.

BY STEVEN LEE  Loaded with overstuffed  pack, boots, water canteen,  sleeping bag arid a one way  ticket to Australia Mark and I  were off. The Wellington Express with its old red; wooden  cars and leather seats lurched  southward as we stepped off  at the deserted platform at  Tuakau 40 miles south of  Auckland. We strolled through  the country town as birds  sang and locals pushed their  hand mowers across their neat  lawns. Taukau was a typical  New Zealand country town;  tip sweet smell of hay in the  air, one street lined with century old wooden buildings  each with a huge veranda and  overhanging roof, a handful  of quarter century old British  cars gathering dust near the  major building and focal point  of the community, the pulb. A  supper of watery sweet. New-  Zealand (beer and an ineyit--  afblevmeat pie and then we  were on our way hitching  south through more towns and  more pubs the length of the  country.  Summer had begun;  The most remarkable part  about the journey or any such  journey through New Zealand  Iwas the feeling of the nation,  The green immaculate farms!  the trimmed hedges, the rolling Jiills and1 gorse filled valleys, fragrant blooms and forests of exotic and giant ferns  cannot help but create a sense  of deep pastoral beauty, peace,  security, and a heart-filled  happiness that only backpacking ih such surroundings can  bring.  Those who have read JvR.R.  Tolkein's The HoWbit or Lord  of the Rings would appreciate  the Shirelike middle' earthi-  ness of New Zealand; from the  Mount Doom-like smoking  volcanoes to the Bagend-like  villages to the almost Hobbit-  like New Zealand country  folk. The nation is truly I a  world of its own.   .  We passed through the village of the Maori Queen at  Ngaruawahia and then spent  a restful night under a willow  tree onthe banks of the Wai-  kato river in Hamilton. The  next day while tearing warm  crusty fresh baked bread into  pieces and stuffing bur mouths  we rode in the back of an  open utility van. We passed  through the Waikatp, some of  the most beautiful and productive dairy land in the country. .,:������  At Mount Maunganui we  were greated by the blue Pacific, a magnificent surf and a  white sand beach that stretches around the 'great arc of  the Bay of Plenty/Here, after  a visit to the seaside pub to  wash down the dust of the  road, we swam and then followed the beach around the,,  ibase of the mount. /The afternoon (walk was filled with  spectacular colour. The pohu-  takaua trees -were in full  bloom, their bright crimson  flowers blazed against the  dark hoUy\ green folliage of  the twisted trees that bore  tthem and their drops of crimson blood spilled onto the pure  white sand. The trees were  candles of colour against a  flawless tolue sky while all  around the sea swirled in  streaks of navy blue and turquoise. Great grey wooly  sheep waddled along the sand  munching on tufts of golden  seaside grass. The sun shone  as it had never shone before.  By evening we had arrived  in' Rotorua, New Zealand's  steaming tourist centre. We  stayed the night at the Youth  Hostel and enjoyed the company of fellow travellers from  all corners of the globe. It was  here that I was reminded  once again that I had picked  up a Kiwi accent. A long leisurely swim in the steaming  thermal pools before bed relaxed the muscles after a long ���  day on the road.  The next day held in store  the geophysical wonders of the  area; craters of bubbling mudy  erupting geysers, lakes of  boiling water, and a dreamlike atmosphere of. steam,  sulfur, and water vapour. Arid  this was only the beiiinriing of  7 the wonders that we would  Ywiew in the nextweeks,yAfteij  Rotorua came the mountain  plateaus of the centre of the  North Island; stands of giant  pine and fir trees thai; matured in an incredably short 20}  years,1 logging trucks and forestry stations and the cool  scent of coniferous forests  that made me feel right at  home.  Then Lake Taupo, the largest lake in the-southern hemisphere, arid on to Napier, the  popular seaside resort city  that had been levelled in the  I1930's by a major earthquake  and had then been rebuilt,  with (beautiful gardens and  seaside promenades. We passed through the vinyard country of -Jawke Bay and south  through the Fraser Canyonlike Mariawatu gorge with its  surging green rapids ��� and  winding one lane road that  clung to the cliff faces. Finally, at sunset on a Friday night  we arrived -in Wellington.  Wellington lies around a  perfect circular lagoon shaped  harbor that is linked by a narrow channel, to the Cook Strait  The city is not only surrounded by mountains, but is built  upon them where they plunge  into Ythe harbor and the sea.  There is no flat land in Wellington. All the streets are narrow and wind up and down, v  hills an_ mountains in a fashion more vertical than horizontal. The houses and tall  apartment and office buildings  k are perched precariously on  steep slopes in the earth tremor prone capital city.  There are trees, bush cov-  , ered   hillsides   arid   beautiful  f gardens      everywhere.      But  f Wellington is mos't fanied, not  tfor   its    sea    and   mountain  ; (beauty or even for its national capital status, but is most  renowned    for    its    amazing  (wind.  The  climate is similar  to Vancouver, cool wet winters and warm damp summers  but unlike Vancouver,. Wellington suffers almost continuously from gale force winds.  Four times I have visited  Wellington and only once have  the winds ,not beeri raging at  60 or even 60 miles per hour.  The winds; sweep off the  JSoutihern Alps of the 'South  Island or up the Cook Strait  and are funnelled into the  city^s narrow harbor entrance  and then rage upon the capital with all their cruel  strength. Seven years ago the  new flagship of the inter-  island ferry service, the Wai-  hine, was caught in 100 mile  an. hour winds as it tried to  enter the harbor. The ship  capsized with the loss of more  (than fifty lives. City streets  bear signs, warning drivers to  beware of the wind; while  railings are provided along  sidewalks iri an effort to prevent pedestrians from completely losing their footing  during sudden gusts. But this  visit was a windless one The  sun set beyond the distant  mountains of the South Island,  and as it did the city sprung}  to life.  It was an early summer  evening , and! the -\yhole' city  was on Lampton* Quay hurrying to dinner, the theatre, government receptions, shopping  or just strbllirig -in the warm  windless air.- Cuba Mall was  alive with shoppers >and the  massive Central Station that  is the terminusforall national and commuterrail traffic  looked like a beehivt. Wellington, as always, was thoroughly enjoyable.  An excellant dinner and  some lively nightspots later  we turned in at the Victoria  University residence hall  which was the Youth Hostel  for the summer. After riding  the cablecars, sightseeing and  visiting friends we left Wellington for the South Island.  Ori a glassy calm evening  the inter-island car ferry slipped from its pier, glided  across the mountain encircled  haifoor and as the twinkling  lights of the city ringed the  bay like a dazzling necklace,  set out across the Cook Strait.  & SON LTD.  1659 Sunshine Coast Hiway, Gibsons^ ��� .886-7112  CARPETS ��� TILES ��� LINOLEUMS  Keep those promises you've made to yourself ���  with the help of these Royal savings services.

STUMPS NOT GARBAGE  If you have tree stumps you  want to put in as pick-up garbage, Regional District bylaw  22 (1) which was given first  and second readings at last  week's board meetings will be  of interest to you. It states  that tree stumps are not classified as garbage therefore it  is up to you to dispose of  them. The bylaw awaits municipal   departmental   approval.  WALLET  FOUND  If Daniel Q. Tierney of Bel-  levue, Washington is now on  the Sunshine Coast he can  call at the Coast News office  and obtain his wallet.  Mr. Arthur Shaw, Haribury  road, Roberts Creek has  drawn the attention of four  govermental departments to  his situation and this at the  request of petitioners who live  in the same area.  ; Mr. Shaw has some explaining to do with the health,  building, highways departments and the Regional planner. It appears he has, littered  his property with decrepit  automobiles, has about 40 jpigs  rooting in other people's gardens, his mobile home is there  unauthorized and for domestic  use water from a nearby ditch,  according to the petitioners.  The   petition   came   before  Keats Is. plan  John Bush arid Fred Eaton  of Vancouver proposed to the  Regional district board a plan  to establish a 400 acre sharing recreational real' estate  setup on Keats Island in vicinity of Eastborne on the  north side.:  His plan was to form ^he  Keats Island Perpetual Park  Ltd. which would sell single  family residential plots to _  limited number with the idea  of keeping the area in its present state. The property also  has a 3,000 foot waterfront.  He was advised by the board  to look into all the legislation available concerning land  use, before he committed himself and when ready submit  his plans to the board.  Expensive M.O.  postmaster James Marshall  had a visitor the other day  with a money order dated  1950 and he wanted it cashed.  Mr. Marshall explained amon-  ey order would have to be  sent to Ottawa for verification. *  This would take some time  and as Mr. Marshall explained would result in post office  cost greater than the face value of the money order. Verification is awaited from Ottia-  wa's postal archives.  the Regional District board at  last week's meeting and Mrs.  Blomgren, a Hanbury road  resident explained he was obstructing the road allowance  and gathering miscellaneous  junk on his property.  The board decided that all  four officials involved should  look into the complaints within their jurisdiction and see.  what can be done. Mrs. Blomgren told the board the pigs  have charged into gardeners  working on their own property.

To control inJlation, Galbraith has written, there has  to be a sufficiently heavy reduction in the level of demand!! It could be controlled  with a less drastic reduction  if something could be done to  arrest the interaction of wages  and pricey or to speak more  precisely, of wages, profits  and prices.*  Find a politician or a business man who wants to be  (precise and talk about profits  along with wages and prices  before talking about controls.  Find someone willing to discuss total income control.  Stanfield will not. Trudeau  !will not, Lewis will not. Barrett doesn't believe in any income control.  Since Galbraith wrote that  in 1958 and no one has learned the lesson yet, ���so letfs  get more up to date and see  what David Lewis said in the  House of Commons on May 7,  1974: We disagree with the  idea of wage and price controls for reasons we have of ten  given. Let me summarize  them in one sentence. I suggest that such policy would-  either freeze high prices or  low wages or would have to be  so modified that it would  cease to be an over-all plan/  Thafs for sure. So the Toronto Star had better put on  their thinking caps and delve  more deeply into what motivates, men and women. Economics are one discipline and  psychology and philosophy  are two more. Right now they  just cannot get together and  start preparing for 1984. -H.F.  Harris.  Editor's note: To suggest we  have no other choice but to  allow the ravages of inflation  to completely ruin bur economy is defeatism of the type  that should not be encouraged  We lived through controls and  decontrol during the last war  and we can do it again if the  country puts its mind to it.  Mr. Lewis and his argument  low wage earners would be  the greatest sufferers; there  could Ibe a ceiling to- which  they could progress without  increasing controlled inflation.  To -admit inflation has us  whipped into submisson is  hardly the way out for a populace armed with computers  that solve problems with 'greater ease than they were able  to solve them during the 1939-  45 war.

Gurney, Gibsons.  Pirates comi  Dog onus to be on owner  Frank Ney of Nanaimo and  his pirates twill again attend  the opening of the .1974 Sea  Cavalcade. If you do not recall the pirates perhaps the  memory of last year's pirate  battle involving members of  two navy boats, produced a  somewhat hectic opening  event.  On the other hand the Air  Force has been forced to decline a flypast due to fuel conservation. Three letters accepting invitations to attend  have been received from Harry Olaussen MP, Don Lockstead MLA and Mr. Ney and  his pirates.  A change to the provincial  Municipal act /which would  place the onus of guilt on the  owner of a dog instead of on  the dog is awaited by Gibsons  municipal council. Mayor  Larry Labonte and aldermen  are awaiting information covering the amendments.  The reason why dogs became a council discussion was  a letter from Ewart McMynn.  Here is Mr. McMynn's ^letter to council:  "Nine Dogs in front of the  office Sat. AM. The scene  best described by a little girl  on the sidewalk: 'Mommy look  at all the dogs chasing that  little Lady dog/  'We are being bluffed and  laughed at by the dog owner  who doesn't give a continental and accepts no responsibility, secure in the knowledge  that if we even talk about the  problem, we will find some  excuse to do nothing.  'We are- all aware that  threats, fines, warnings and  protests will accomplish nothing.  'However a dog catcher  brought in for eyen one day,  with a reasonable bounty, arid  the distinct' understanding  that any animal picked up  would have to be destroyed,  icould       accomplish,      several  things,   it   would   reduce   ihe  number of dogs on the street,  it would impress the irresponsible owner that the council meant business and make  garden lovers happy. This  would have to be done without previous warnings, tip  offs or loop-holes.  'I have previously stated  that I appreciate the difficulties and would like to help,  this suggestion is given in the  same spirit'.  MFA REJECTS OFFER  The provincial Municipal  Finance Authority has decided it will not take on the burden of becoming the assessment authority for the province.

Y  THE INSURANCE  vour insurance company Spring rhubarb with its  deep red stalks and tart flavor is now available. It is usually sold by the bunch and  the stalks, should be fresh,  firm, crisp and! straight with  a bright color. Thin, wilted or  oversizeed stalks will be tough  and stringy.        ^  For best flavor, rhubarb  should be used within a day  ,or two. The leaves should be  removed and the stalks stored  in airtight plastic bags in the  refrigerator. If leaves are left  on they tend to draw moisture  from the stalks and! cause  wilting to occur.  While rhubarb is 5n good  supply it is a good idea to take  advantage of it and freeze  some for later use. Nothing  will brighten up a meal next  winter like a luscious; rhubarb pie. Agriculture Canada,  recommend choosing top quality stalks cutting them into  one-inch pieces, and. packing,  them without sugar in freezer  bags.

You'd find that the sawmill  and plywood industry now  has some women forklift  operators and truck  drivers. And the IWA  is demanding Maternity  Leave for these members. Their seniority  and job security  depend on it.  You'd find the average logger has to  support two homes ���  ��� one at camp, the  other where his  family lives. The IWA  considers this unfair  and is therefore demanding freeroom  and board from the  forest industry to  lighten this burden  on their membership.  You'd find safety of  prime concern to  people working in  the forest industry. The IWA was the first  union in North America to have a full-time  director of safety and are, in this year's  contract talks, demanding improvement  and extension of these rules. All the wage  increases and cost of living clauses in the  world are of little benefit to the woodworker out of work because of an accident.  You'd find workers, like you, trying to cope  with rising costs ��� like the cost of adequate dental care for their families. The  IWA is demanding a paid dental plan for its  If you  women in  the woods  today...  j; .-v-'.  members to  '  ensure proper  dental care for  themselves and  their families.  You'd find the accent on  leisure time growing, as in  every other sector of  society. That's why  the IWA is demanding improved vacation time and a  shorter working  week for its members who feel it is  becoming increasingly important to  spend as much time  as possible with  their families.  You'd find the average woodworker  unable to afford  today's high cost of  living. The IWA is  therefore demanding  a one dollar an hour across the board  increase for its members. It's not going to  make anybody rich ��� just help woodworkers cope a little better with  rising costs.  You'd find the backbone of B.C.'s economy  ~ the Forest Industry. Its members,  through the IWA, are making realistic and  reasonable demands in their current negotiations and are determined to continue  their policy of good faith bargaining. All we  ask is that the industry do the same.

EWART McMYNN  jggWgBigSit"'-'-  ' * WS&& sa. ft/includes  A letter sent to the. Regional District board asking for a  report on airport needs, includ  ing preferences and priorities  was turned over to the board-  representatives from the village councils.  How did the villages become  involved in an airport? The  history goes back to early 1957  when Elphinstone Aero club  interested the federal department of transport in the .possibilities of an airport for this  area. The provincal lands department then decided to reserve land for an airport in  Wilson Creek area.  In April of that year the  Aero club sought public support through donated:, work  machinery or cash. At the  same time A_H. Wilson, dis^  trict director of air services  outlined the procedure the  club should use to obtain a  grant through DOT from the  federal government.  At this time the airstrip  was passable. Roy Brett,flying in from Powell River  landed and took off, the first  landing and takeoff! for the  strip.  Developments occurred fair-  1957, in the announcement  from Ottawa of a $36,000 grant  on a cost-sharing basis. Most  of the cost-sharing outlay had  already been supplied in the  preparation of a  usable  air-  4637  SIZES  8-18  10K-18&  SEVEN sleek, svelte, smooth  ways to look wonderful!

It was therefore part of the  agreement with Ottawa that  the municipal councils of Sechelt and Gibsons would be  the local authorities to whom  the air club would be responsible. To make this operation  possible both councils agreed  to a five man committee, two  from Sechelt council and two  from Gibsons council,, -with  one club representative making a committee of five. This  committee has been in operation ever since. It is known as  the airport management committee.  The agreement covering establishment of the airport was  officially signed by the DOT,  and Gibsohs and Sechelt municipal councils. Tenders were  called for further work oh the  strip in October 'li957 as the  result of the federal grant.  Once the airport became a  function of municipal councils the airport committee  looked to them for financial  support and each council decided on a sum of $750 per  year to help the committee.  Later this was increased to  $1,250 yearly from each council. Records have been kept  ly fast. The club's brief to Ottawa resulted, during July of  on expenditures. The revenue  side of the airport balance  sheet is slim so far.  Municipal councils have  maintained the Regional board  is the authority that should  be looking after the airport.  The airport is there for any  one to  use  on  coming to or  leaving  the  area  and  is  hot  owned by either municipal  council. They have in the past  regarded themselves as a convenience for the federal government to have someone close  by holding a watching brief.  The Regional board at its  October, 1068 meeting decided  it had no authority to take  over management of the airport and suggested that further information should be  gathered for referendum possibilities. Its opinion since  then has not changed.  GIFT FROM SWEDEN  The B.C. Swedish Community has undertaken one of  their most enthusiastic projects.
