Cavalcade future m doubt  Gibsons Sea Cavalcade may  be held this year on August 8,  9 and 10, if it is held at all.  At a meeting Sunday night in  Kinsmen hall, a partial executive wais chosen, and another  meeting has been called for  March 23. If there is not a suf  ficient, turnout to this meeting,  the Cavalcade will be dropped  for this year.  Representatives-at the meeting changed the dates for two  reasons. The first was to get  aiwiay from the holiday weekend August 4. Second, Jack  Anacka and Doug Kew of the  Cougars reach Provincial finals  For the first time Elphin  stone Cougars- have qualified  for the provincial Senior^ A  Boys Basketball finals. These  provincial finals will be held  at the St. Thomas More Secondary School on March 13, 14  and 15.  For provincial finals the province has been divided into  seven geographic zones. The  Cougars have won in the tough  lower mainland zone and will  now be representing the A  schools from the Fraser Va!  ley and Vancouver as well as  their own Howe Sound zone.  The following is a list of  teams and the zones that they  represent:  Inveranere, East Kootenay  zone; Shawnigan Lake, Vancouver Island zone; Houston,  Northern B.C .West zone; Elphinstone, Tri-zone- Vanderhoof, Northern B,C. Central;  Boundary Central (Midway)  West Kootenay zone; St. Tho  mas  More,  host   school;   Bar-  riere, Okanagan zone.  Expenses for attending these  play-offs have been costly to  Elphinstone Seicondary. school  and the boys themselves.  The boys should not1 have to  pay: out-of-pocket expenses to  attend this provincial final. Total costs will be approximately $585. The school board and  Student government have both  contributed towards the expenses, but it is hoped the community in general would like  to show that they support  them.  If you or your organization  would like to help the Cougars  financially, please call Mr. Don  Montgomery at the school, 886-  2204.

Committee members emphasize this is not a large enough  committee to run an event as  large as the Sea Cavalcade,  and more members are necessary.

Sechelt flags  at half mast  The   flags   in   Sechelt   have'  been  flying   at  half-miast  for  the- past few days. The village  .-is mourning the loss of a man  5 who for the past I0_years' or  so* has been known to most villagers as the chief of the volunteer fire department ��� and  4 to . some of his closer friends  . and acquaintances as "a hell of  a good man.*'  "   Tom Robilliard, age 50, passed away early last Saturday  morning   in   Vancouver's   St.  Paul's Hospital.

Fire-stamped envelopes, and  post cards issued by the Canada Post Office this month feature a new postage design by  local   artist   Brian   Fisher   of  Roberts Creek.  The design of the new postage indicia was developed to  improve the quality of the post  age in_p_es_dpii on pre-stamped  envelopes and post cards and  contains a security feature  where the postage indicia continues over the right edge of  the envelopes to the reverse  side.  Irt an interview Monday Brian said he was not entirely  happy with the design because  the colors had been changed  considerably from the originals  which he submitted to Canada  Post Office about two years  ago.  He said post office people  missed the whole point of the  design wihich was meant to integrate the post office colors  of blue, purple, white and red  in a graduation, of tones.  The stamped postcards and  envelopes in 6c and 8c denominations   are    no-w    available  A cheque for $100 was ac-T  cepted last week by Mrs/Sliei-  la Kitson, president of the Elphinstone Pioneer Museum Society!

Indians seek more independence  , A major proposal for increas  ed independence and self determination is to be presented  Friday in Ottawa to the minister of Indian Affairs and the  minister of Justice by representatives of an alliance of the  Musqueam. Sechelt and Squa  mish Bands from British, Col  uanbia.  The proposal, developed  after intensive study of serious  problems! affecting the progress and develoippnent of the  bands, ranges, from recommend  ations for increased utilization  of powers existing under the  present Indian Act to the dramatic suggestion that the  Musqueam Band be given complete independence from federal government jurisdiction  and/administration. ���  The alliance was formed by  the Musqueam, Sechelt and  Squaqnish Indian Bands in Oct.  1_74 to deal with conimon issues in land use and local gov  ernment on their respective  reserves. Its structure is in  formal and allows for the ad  mission of other Bands by re  solution.  ITheir brief to the minister  of Indian Affairs and the min  ister of Justice comprises 44  Paiges of carefully thought out  material, drawn from the ex  periences of all three Bands  and setting out a series of pro  posals and recommendations  that will enable them to  achieve greater independence  and control over their affairs.  A major concern outlined in  the brief is the role of the fed  era! department of Justice as  it affects Indian legal rights.  The main thrust of the Indian  concern relates to the apparent  conflict of interest position  that exists when the depart  ment of Justice attempts to  represent both the Crown and.  the best interests of the Indian  people, in matters relating  to land title. .  At present Indian people can  not 7_>etain   legal   counsel   for  this purpose except through  the department of Justice and  in effect are denied a right  available tp other  Canadians.  The alliance of bands is re  questing a complete and im  partial review of this pressing  problem and are suggesting a  change in the existing Justice  atet to permit Band1 retained  lawyers to be appointed agents  of the Crown for purposes of  Band legal business, relating  to reserve lands.  Economic development is an  other subject to be covered  during the meeting. The alii  ���ance brief proposes a number  of specific suggestions that  would simplify and facilitate  economic development on their  reserve lands. A proposed addition to the Indian act that  would be available for adop  tion at the discretion of individ  ual bands would permit the  esttaiblishment of an Indian  company with legal status  while* remaining under- the  jurisdiction of the act.  A final subject for discussion  relates to the concern of the  bands for the lack of dialogue  between the federal and pro  vdncial governments on the  subject of Indian problems.  The alliance is strongly urging  the federal government to es  tablish better communication  between the two levels of gov  ernment and the bands.  Gilbert Joe of the Indian  band who went to Ottawa for  the presentation of the brief  said on his return that the  brief was accepted favorably  and that after consideration  the Band would receive some  indication as to the next move  to be made by the end of  March.

Phone 886-2622        PO Box 460, Gibsons, BC  A sensible suggestion!  The request from the school board for land on the  Indian Reserve as a school site contains considerable  merit. The land desired would be behind St. Mary's Hospital site.  This should please those people rightly opposed to  the location in West Porpoise Bay area. It will be close  to all means of transportation and also closer to the centre of population.  The Sechelt Band hais been co-operative where public needs are paramount. St. Mary's Hospital is an example. With the closure in June of the Reserve school  by the Department of Indian Affairs there is good reason  to believe the Band will give the school board request  serious consideration.  Let's be correct  Before our provincial Department of Municipal Affairs gets itself tangled up with the law, someone should  explain to them the geography of the Sunshine Coast.  It should be pointed out that the Sechelt Peninsula  is only a small part of the Sunshine Coast. Therefore  when they talk of the Sechelt Peninsula they should not  refer to the Sunshine Coast as being the Sechelt Peninsula. The Sunshine Coast includes the Sedhelt Peninsula,  To be legal, and the department will have to be  sometime in the expansion battle now underway, it will  have to.be exact in its geographical delineations of the  land they are talking about. So please remember Gibsons is 14 m^les from Sechelt and X-angdale is 16 miles  from the Peninsula.  Education and wisdom  A UNITED CHURCH UNCHURCHED EDITORIAL  The highly educated person is not necessarily a wise  person. The unusually clever perspn does not always  show wisdom in his cleverness. You can have a high I.Q.  and still not be wise. Wisdom, real wisdom, can come to  persons of quite ordinary intelligence; Wisdom is not so  much a matter of intelligence as of what is done with  intelligence.  Teachableness is as significant as intelligence in the  attaining of wisdom. And that is not simply a capacity  to take formal instruction and pass examinations ��� although such things can be significant. -  What we do with" our educational opportunities has  much to do with the degree of wisdom to which we attain. Stephen Leacpck once said, "An education, when it  is all written out on foolscap, covers nearly ten sheets."  Leacock made an important point there: much Of the  real value of your education is to be found in what remains after you have forgotten much of what you deliberately set out to learn. And in that can be a essential  source of wisdom.  5 to 25 years ago  Five  Years  Ago  February was a dry month  wi��h only 2.67 inches of rain.

Oanadians are communicating" more than ever before  through the medium of books  and the role the government  played in achieving that degree  of national maturity has been  significant even crucial.  So said Hon. J. Hugh Faulk  ner, secretary of state when  addressing the conference  on  the state Of the Ehglish language publishing in Canada at  Trent University, Ontario.  Excerpts from his speech  follow:  (The National Library is  spending some $400,000 per  year on the production and dis  tr-bution of its monthly Canad  iamia catalogue. Next year, the  Library plans to issue Canad-  iana on a weekly basis. Further  more, the National Librarian  is currently negotiating with  several institutions in a program- of pre^ataloguing of  Canadian publications and  hopes within a few weeks to  submit a concrete proposal to  Canadian publishers.  That then: is an outline of the  Canadian government's financial support to Canadian publishing - altogether-some $5%  million. The Canada Council's  funds of $4 million will how  be raised by $1.5 million, or  ailmost 40% Let me put it blunt  ly' by any standard that I  know of. including the standard of our support to the performing arts, the world of  books is very heaivily subsidized in this country.  In a word, government supported   activities have   up   to  now been oriented, and I think  rightly and successfully so, towards creativity, towards seeing that Canadians who have  the  will     and the     talent to  write  can  write,  and can; be  published. More than that, and  I aim thinking again of my responsibility    for    opening    the.7  channels     of     communication !  between Canadians, books important   to   our   national   life,  which might otherwise never  have seen print because they  looked unprofitable, have ccwme  out thanks to these programs.  Canadians  are communicating  more than ever before  through the medium of books.'  The role the-governmeait has  played in achieving that degree  of national maturity has been  significant,  even crucial.  I don't wish to pass off to my  provincial colleagues responsibilities which are not theirs,  but some aspects of publishing, including three of vital  importance in bringing books  to the public, fall entirely with  in their jurisdiction.  One is the. public library,  whose purchasing and other  managerial policies affect authors, publishers and booksellers,  as well as readers. What proportion of library purchases  are Canadian books and ho!w  many does it buy? In Canada  or aboard? Locally or elsewhere in Canada? How if at all  does it display and promote the circulation of these  books? If we ever devise a sys  tern of paying authors . for  their books loaned to the public  can library management play  its part? But public libraries  are provincial and municipal  institutions and it is not for  the government of Canada to  set the policies by which they  operate. These questions are  for the provinces to ponder  and to resolve. I would hope  that yoiu7.be as forthcoming  iwith suggestions to them, as  you have been with me.  Second, many people have  argued that retail outlets  should he required to include  Canadian books in their selection. Again enactment of such  a regulation might go along  way towards helping to solve  some of the availability problems. While I'm sure you'll  agree with me that so complex  a problem can hardly be totally  resolved by the simple (passage  of a law, nevertheless, those  laws acre provincial ones, and  again I can't change them.  Finally, it is the provinces  who set policies affecting the  production and use of educational materials. Everyone is  agreed that textbooks are a  predominant and vital element  of the publishing industry,; bxitN  there againYainy initiative clear  ly rests with provincial govern  ments. i  One of the most serious dif-,  ficulties facing Canadian writing is access there is an inadequate network of bookstores in Canada; there is no  significant penetration of the  mass'paperback area by books  of Canadian authorship; few  libraries in Canada have a-  dequate collections of Canadian books.  (As regards Gibsons Public  (Library situation there are  some 25% of Canadian books  on its __ielves and of that total  15% is non-fiction.)  The' right to read is basic.  The Canadian public will want  to read foreign books, to have  access to them and to have reviews in the Canadian media.  Publishing is an international  activity judged by international  standards.

If it happened-.'that you are related to  a man called Jari Cornelius  Van Texel who lived in the  colonies (New York state) in  the early 1600 then you could,  to borrow a phrase from those  fabulous  people who brought  you BJC. Tel. look it up in the  book.  What book, you ask?  Well look in Bonny Bennett's basement and you'll  probably find a stack (high  enough to get you to the top  of the Vancouver'...Public Library.  As  Bonny  admits,' The  Coast News March. 12, 1975 3  Book, as she calls it with an  ambivalence of love andrejec  tion, will never make it to the  best, seller, list. But it's riot  meant to.  In fact, the Gibsons lass,  who lives on Itosamund Road,  along with her husband Brian  and two freckled little girls,  will tell you that it's   dtown-  right duIL JGxcept, of course,  if you're a distant offspring of  old Jan Cornelius.  To set things straight we'll'  start with the title that goes:  Van Tassel and Allied Lines:  1574-1974. (The author is a 65  year old lady whom Bonny refers to as her mother and is  probably better known as Mrs.  Mary Pazurik of Trail, B.C.)  Mary Pazurik's passion is  geneology and the book is the  end result oif 40 years of researching, and letter writing  that has taken her back to 16-  00's Tarrytown, New York and  1500's Isle of Texel off the  Northern coast of Holland. It's  Bonny that .probably echoes  her mother's sentiments when  she says it's so interesting to  know  what makes   you   tick.;.  So what's Benny's special  relation-hip to the book and  why is it known in Ideal oir.-  cles.'as Bonnes book when it's  really Benny's mother's book?  For starters ask Bonny what  she did in all those graveyards  and libraries when she wlas a  little girl on holidays with her  family. Ask Bonny what it's  like to type 16,000 pages of  manuscript and then to collate 280,000 more. And while  you're there ask her what it's  like to wtalk around the streets  of Vancouver looking for  ; publishers who wiant nothing  less than $26,000 for a thousand hardcover copies. And  if that doesn't start her shriek  ing ask her about the dedicated  ma^rnalism that guided the  printed pages through a press  in the back shop of a newspaper that would rather remain anonymous.  '"Yes," Bonny sighs as she  thinks of the 550 finished  pages with 520O dififieirent  names, "I'm. glad it's finished,  it's like building a house." And  She's even more glad' for her  mother who knows the book  like a grade sixer knows a  Shakspeare sonnet.  "I never thought we would  get it publi-flied," states Bonny  'land if we ever do it again I  know what to do.*'  And if Bonny's serious in  calling her mother's hobby  "never ending" she'll just have  time to change the ribbon in  her typewriter before all those  Trail^postmairked letters ask  about who and what in 1342.

Johnson after being convicted  of false pretenses in a trial  Feb. 6. The charges resulted  from the accused writing an  $80 cheque to Sechelt Super-  Tmiarket August 30 while not  having sufficient funds in his  bank account.  Tardiff had earlier been con  victed of tfwo counts of breaking and entering, obtaining a  meal by fraud, and' driving  while under suspension.    ,  Cohsiderinjg the aoousedf^  pre-sentence report defense  lawyer for Tardiff, J.F. Bridal,  told the court his client, had a  most difficult and trying child  hood and the six. weeks he  spent in custody in Vancouver  relating to previous criminal  charges had a profound impression on the young man.  'I think he should be given  a last chamce mainly because  of his terrible home life. "Bridal told the court. He indicated  that all the offenses had involy  ed alcohol.  In sentencing Tardiff Judge  Johnson said he toad to do what  was best for the character Of  the aidousedi and also what was  best for the protection of  society.  The judge said Outward  Bound was a character building claimp that makes people do  things they never thought they  could do before. After hearing  sentence Tardiff told the judge.  "I hate to say it but I disagree  with you."  A Gibsons man whose driving has been "a source of many  complaints" was fined $200  and prohibited from driving  for isix months after he pleaded guilty in Provincial Court  Thursday to driving wthile under suspension.  YPaul B. Gregg was involved  in a single vehicle accident  March. 4 on Bay Road, Gibsons'  when he lost control of his  vehicle.  "Court was told Gregg had  intiaHy denied driving the  vehicle but later admitted to  RCMP that he, \ and not a-  young lady accompanying him,  had driven the vehicle at the  titme of the accident.  Gregg told Judge J.SJP. John  son that he was driving because the other people in the  car were drunk. Hislicense  had been suspended in January  with an accumulation of 20  points. . \; 7:>  ���'Your driving record indicates you are a very irresponsible driver," Judge Johnson  said. He added if Gregg was  caught driving under the court  suspension he would! faloe an  automatic 14 days in jail for:  contempt of court.,, YY;  '  Gerald Victor Runcer.'.;was  fined $300 after pleading guilty  to driving with a blood-alcohol  content over .08%.  Runcer argued that he had  not felt the influence of the  alcohol and the judge stated  he wias not being charged with  being under the influence of  alcohol but driving with more  than . .08% alcohol content.  Rfunoer"s license will be suspended one month.  Cornelius Wagenaar pleaded  guilty to impaired driving  ateter he was spotted by RCMP  driving erratically on Highway  101 March 1. He was fined  $400 and will have his license  suspended one month."  SCOUT MEETING  Hon. R.

It's a bloomin' jade tree mate  and ��� thiait's a rarity in these  parts especially when the tree  is only 10 years old and doesn't  usually bloom until it's much  older.

Regional board  price too low  Gibsons village will hold on  --to   their   Pratt and  Veterans  Roads waterlines because the  Regional Boards price is too  low.  ���  Gibsons Aldermen decided  in a committee meeting last  Tuesday that the board offer  of approximately $23,000 is too  ���; low and the lines would be  kept for future incorporation  into subdivisions on the east  side of Pratt Road.  The,Regional Board rejected  Gibsons asking price of $37,800  at the last meeting and offered  the village that the lines be  purchased at the present replacement Costs minus the cost  of upgrading, and depreciation  based on a 40 year life span  which amounts to about $23,-  000.  Council says it will cost the  Regional Board much more to  replace the wtaterlines in the  Pratt and Veterans Roads area  Sirens noisy  Gibsons fire sirens were on  the noisy side during the past  week with three alarms sounding. One on Friday, a malfunction in the system sounded an  alarm. Later that evening a  car caught fire in Granthams  area and on Saturday a chimney fire on North Fletcher  road gave the firemen a short  run.  ,\  Alderman cites moral obligation  , Sechelt AldermaQ Dennis  Shuttleworth voted against Bylaw No. 143 _ a temporary  borrowing bylaw to obtain further financing for the Sunshine Coast arena ��� because  of moral obligations.  The bylaw, adopted at last  Wednesday's council meeting,  will allow the village7 to borrow $40,000 from the: Municipal Finasnjce Authority to complete payment of costs for the  $630,000 arena.  Alderman Norman Watson,  who moved acceptance of the  bylawvsaid that the $40,000 was  in addition to the $200,000 already obtained from the winter  capital works project loan and  that the exstra amount had to  come from MFA because the  winter works coffers were empty as far as Sechelt was concerned.  Watson explained that the  $200,000 originally applied for  under winter works was not  sufficient and instead of asking  for an additional sum from the  same source it was easier to  get it out of "a different pocket from the same pair of  pants."  A portion of the money obtained through winter works  is non-repayable but money obtained through MFA is straight  loan.  _ Alderman Shuttleworth objected to the bylaw because he  felt council was morally obliged to go to public referendum.  He said he could not agree  with public funds being directed to a private association without the consent of the people  of Seohelt He also said the  loan would probably decrease  the village borrowing power.  iSechelt village clerk Tom  Wood indicated that the $40,000  loan would be subtracted from  the maximum amount, the village could borrow and that  money is not normally obtained from MFA without a public  referendum unless' it is used  for sewage, water or pollution  facilities. ���  He said that council does not  feel a referendum is necessary  in this case because $40,000 is  a relatively small amount compared to the total cost of the  arena. He estimated the maximum borrowing power of the  village to equal about $280,000.

Money decisions  must be made  Everyone must make money  decisions during a lifetime. The  wisdom of these diedsions is  reflected in ^the way life is  lived and organized and enjoyed  There is a real art to using  your money for the sort of life  you want.  No one can draw up a spend  ing and saving emergency plan  ���for you, any more than another  person can run your life.  In an effort.to help you figure out what is most important for you in your money  plans we are starting this  week a series of eight colutons  on Your Money and Credit.  The series suggests you sit  dowtn to think about what you  want to gpend and save by  next year and 10 years from  ndw - and it will give you  soJme ideas of how to go about  it.  "Hhe series, prepared by the  Canadian Bankers' Association,  is based on a free booklet avail  able from the association. Box  282. Toronto Dominion Centne,  MSK 1A3 The food basket  - Can I save money by buying  a side of beef? More and more  people are asking that question  There is no simple yes or ho  answer One hlas to make a care  ful comparison of costs among  the three aternatives available:  buying a side or a quarter;  boiyinig wholesale cuts (lion,  round chunk); or buying retail cuts.     .  When you buy a hind or a  front quarter, you get a variety  of cuts, some tender and some  leas tender You should have an  idea of the amount of steiaks,  roasts, pot roasts and minced  meat you'll get.  In a hind quarter of approxi  mately 150 pounds,* you can  expect about 55 pounds of  steaks such as round, sirloin,  porterhouse, T-Bone and wing;  24 pounds of rump and sirloin  tip roasts; and 28 pounds of  stewing or ground meat. Fat,  bones and cutting shrinkage  atefcount for the remaining 43  pounds. .  In a front quarter of approxi  mately 150 pounds, you get  about 20 pounds of tender rib  roasts; 58 pounds of less tender  roasts such as plate brisket,  brisket point, blade, short rib,  cross rib and chuck roasts:  and 32 pounds of stewing or  ground meat.  Thef remaining 40 pound-?  covers flat, bones and cutting  shrinkage. A steer is obviously  not all steaks and rib roiasts, If  your fatnily does not care for  pot roasts, ground beef or stew  there's no point in buying a  front quarter.  Most freezer beef sales are  made on the basis of the hang  ing weight of the carcass. This  is the weight before any excess  fat or bone is trimmed away.  There is about 25 percent  waste that has to be taken into  account when calculating the  price of your purchase. Also,  check to see if the price of cut  ting, wrapping and quick-free-  ' zing is included in the cost  per pound you were quoted.  If the butcher does (not have  the facilities for quick-freezing  your meat, make sure you have  adequate space to do so before  buying in bulk. You cannot  freeze more than 50 pounds of  mieat in a 16 cubic foot freezer  in 24 hours. For fast freezing,  Tmafee sure the meat is placed  near the bottom and the sides  of the freezer.    "  If you are not interested in  all the cuts that come with a  side or quater, or if your freezer storage space is inadequate, consider buying a  /wholesale cut From a lion you  /would get porterhouse, TjBone  wing and sirloin steaks plus  some ground and stewing meat  From a hip come rump roiasts,  round steaks or roast, sirloin  tip roast and some stewing  and ground meat. A chuck  will provide chuck, blade, short  rib and cross rib pot roasts  plus ground and stewing meat.  The third alternative is buy  ing at retail only the particular  cuts you perfer. To save on  these, w_tch the advertised  "specials." This method of  buying enables you to buy as  little or as much beef as you  like and to control the amount  of money you spend at one  time.

W.B.SCOULAR,  Returning Officer ^w^_^__��i  55_jgwtesj8SSsS3!gjBS  Report from the legislature 200 year flood  rule disliked  Coast News March. 12, 1975 7  (BT  DON  LOCKSTEAD)  The legislature is no*w concentrating on the Budget debate, and I would like to discuss some of the ways that this  budget will affect my constituency. For highways, there is  a Five-Year Plan for the up-  igradin(g of major roads. The  iapproach in that department  is how one of rational, long-  term planning with the environment taking precedence over  elections. For the first time,  local government and interested groups are being invited to  put forward their views.  The budget has provided for  a increase in the Department  of Transport arid C^mmunica-  tion. Our riding is dependent  upon ferries, *and there have  been improvements in service  and upgrading c_ vessels. Between Langdale and Horseshoe  Bay, traffic has increased by  34 percent in the last year. The  Ferries branch has recognized  the problems of tihe traffic increases, and has constructed  three new vessels^ and purchased the Qtieen <rf Surrey.  Ocean   Falls  has   come   up  during the debate and the op-  7 position  has   again   criticized  our efforts in that community.  From time to time, Miss  Bee lias on display artistic  efforts by some of our logicalyoungsters. Please help 7  them if you can, their ini>  tiative  and  perseverance.  at least, should have some  recognition. Thank yon.  Miss Bee's, Sechelt.  This government has acted to  keep Ocean Falls alive with  its schools; hospitals and other  community services. By thte  purchase of Ocean Falls, hun-  ���,, dreds of j obs have .been saved,  and I understand the corporation is even going to show a  profit for the last year. This is  due to the hard work and de-  terminaition of the people in  that cbmanunity.   ���-  Another important change  for our riding is in regard to  the small logger and sawmill  operator. The Minister of  Lands. Forests and Water Resources has recognized their  difficulties in an industry dominated by large corporations.  By the adjustment of stulmpage  rates and chip prices the 7 minister has given, the independents now haive a fighting  chance.  There has been a good reaction to the announced program  of making Crown lots available'  to people for horne building.  While large changes cannot  come overnight, I have asked  -the minister for changes) for  those interested in five or ten  acre lots for agricultural  needs.  I have also asked our government to consider changes  in financing of water systems.  We have passed the Sewerage  Facilities Assistance Act which  has provided massive aid to  local governments for sewerage  systems. This assistance could  be extended to the Water Xm-  proyesment districts of our riding." :-'  This year's budget continues  the raitional policies of re-  Source managesnent wliith this  government    has    introduced.  While B.C. has experienced  . some problems in the mining  industry the cause is not Bill  31 but the world price of copper. Copper inines iri other  provinces of Canada and in  other countries iri the world  are cutting back production  and closing. The revenue from  Bill 31 will be only 13 million  dollars not 150 million as the  mining industry., claimed  This government will continue to press for, the natural  gas revenues which reflect the  true value of bur gas resources. We -will continue to demand  from Ottawa the right to export our gas to the Americans  at sensible realistic prices. The  provincial revenues from gas  will be over 100 million dollars in 1075 and any export  price increases will be shared  with municipal governments.  The 1975 budget promises  more services to our citizens.  The benefits of Mincome, Pbarr  macare, recreation grants, park  acquisition and sensible resource management will he  continued and extended There  are budget, measures designed  to increase employment and  maintain, social service.    .  in  YOUR ORDER CAN BE TAKEN At  Allow one week for processing  COAST NEWS  Wally Graham, area pioneer,  died March 7 at Vernon, B.C.

Alderman Norm Watson has  requested to council that a  letter be sent to Victoria ask  ing that the 200 year clause be  reduced to 80 years or that Se  chelt be exempted from the  legislation.  The flood control act, passed  last summer by provincial  water resources depasrtment,  will not allow construction or  reconstruction in some cases  of buildings below a minimum  distance from the high water  mark.  A structure or area may be  exempted from the legislation  if it can be proved that no  flooding has ocurred .within  the last 200 years).  "He was a very ignorant  man who wrote that legisla  tion," Watson said. "It should  not be applied to salt water."  Watson said the 200 year  exemption clause is really not  an exemption at all because  very few retoords in the prov  ince go bpcfc that far. "The  government has just painted  a door on the wall and there  isn't a door there at all."  An engineering study will  be conducted in the Sedhelt  area this summer. The village  is surrounded on two sides by  water and it has been stated  that half the residences are  affetoted by the legislation.  Watson said he, has photo  graphs that go back 80 years  and indicate no flooding prob  lems. He plans to bring govern  ment officials together with  some of the old timers to prove  that there is little danger of  flooding iri the village.  Watson, ; who is . also a regional board director represent  ing Sechelt, said the regional  board plans to seek an exemp  tion for the Davis Bay area  which is also affected to a  large extent by the flood con  txolact  Closing dates  Mock action  Gibsons village and the Win  ter club missed out on the winter capital works project loan  last fall because their application had been sent in too late,  according to official word  received from the federal minister of Finance John Turner.  Turner, in a letter to MP Jack  Pearsall and subsequently forwarded to Gibsons council,  stated that an initial application for. the loan had been  made by the Gibsons Winter  Club and the application was  refused because the money  was designated only for mun  icdpal or provincial pro j dots  and not for private clubs.  The winter club then turned  it into a municipal project and  resubmitted their application.  The second application was re  fused because it had been sulb-  . mitted after the Sept. 30, 1974  deadline.  Gibsons Aldermen   had not  accepted   the   second   refusal  ;    because, they* said, the initial  *    application had been  sent in  I    well prior to the Sept. 30 dead  line.

Surelv you realize  what a disservice you do the  adult population of our community and indeed the children when you assault our intelligence with the review you  gave  your group's "Aladdin."  If you truly believe that Mr.  Willis "did a commendable job  of direction in his first venture" then your knowledge of  theatrical expertise is sadly in  need of rejuvenation.  If you were simply being^  kind then you have failed yourself and your drama group in  encouraging mediocrity and a  total lack of standards.  This is no put-down of Mr.  Willis and his cast and crepv.  Rather, I admire his courage in  attempting   the   difficult   and  demanding technique of direction.  Presented honestl^ to us as a  workshop project, it would  have proved adequate. However to publicize it on your  posters ais a full scale production comparable to your Sun-  jftrine Kingdom of last year  and to charge $1.75 adult admission, was indeed taking advantage of an expectant audience  What has happened to your  standards?

Editor: A recent editorial  spoke approvingly of statements made by school board  Chairman P. Prescesky, in favor of better communication  between the board and the  public.TMr. Prescesky had also  advocated an "open-mind" policy ait a recent public meeting to discuss the board's  choice of site for a new junior  secondary school, sponsored by  a parents group. V  That editorial particularly,  and press coverage generally,  has given a false impression of  the real response by the board-  to concerned parents and other  members of the community.  Mr. Preseesky's statelments,'  in other press coverage, tflniat  the public was notified of the  board's decision six months  ago, are misleading. On Sept  18. 1974,: the Times reported  that Mr. Hanna, Mr. Mills and  Mr. Rutter "were appointed 40  study three* alternative sites."  The board's secresbary-treas-  urer, Mr. Mills, has stated that  "Everyone had their chance'  to speak up at last year's "ex- ,'  haustive public hearings." Since  there have been no exhaustive  puJblic hearings regarding a  new junior secondary school,  it would seem that Mr. MiUs,  new to this school district, has  been misinformed.  Perhapsi the confusion results  from the similarity of the recent sequence of events to  those which took plaice a_5ter  the fire at Elphinstone. At that  time, the boards decision.was  discussed at a hastily called  public meeting, instigated by  members of the public.  The recent outcry of the public is in response to a process  of decision making that is basically negative in concept Only  at the instigation by memlbers  of the community has. the  board agreed to hearings which  will en^le^^e' P)fa$i�� to parti-  cipatte iri a major isisUe.  On Feb. 13. 1974. a brief was  presented at a board meeting,  urging public discussion before  a final decision is made, and  outlining reasons why ^the  choice of site, be reconsidered.  Certainly differences of opinion can lead to argument, but  the defensive attitude of some  board members encountered by  the delegation did little to improve he board's relationship  to the community. As a member  of that delegation, I left that  meeting in angry frustration.  It seemed that the expression  of opinion on an issue of mutual concern was-met with considerably less than a healthy  and positive response by some  board members.  I would like to emphasize  that my remarks about some  board members means jusft  that. One board member, as I  recall, did not participate much  in the disicussion. Another trustee, Mrs. Celia Fisher, was  quite positive in her attitude  to the delegation. The prevailing amosphere was generated  by a minority.  But the defensive attitude of  the board on the whole results  from what is a basically nega- ���  tive approach to public interest in its affairs.  If the board is truly commit-  - tod to improving communication, the "open-mind" policy  would not appear to mean  merely "in one ear and out the  other" as it has seemed in the  past.  Public opinion should be actively sought by the board before major decisions are made.  When approached in this positive manner,' public participation in the initial stages of its  deJoisions could facilitate the  efficient operation of the board.  Time would not be wasted in  bickering a"fter the fact.  Rather   than   regarding   the  public as an  aggressive  nuisance,  the   perspective   gained  by a positive viewpoint might  enable  the  board to   see  the  public as a potential resource,  which it is.  I have just received a questionnaire supposedly designed  to assist the board in its choice  of a .new district superintendent. The questionnaire is . so  superficial that I cannot see  it as meaningful other than as  a token gesture of public participation in another major issue. I hope this is not an indication of the kind of improved  communication the board hopes  to achieve. .'"���.".-'  The kind of confrontation  that took place at those meetings is a far Cry from the rela-  ionship desired by this community, as well as by the  board. Let us hope that positive means to achieve improved communic__tion are quickly  implemented.  ���\R. LEIP1SIC.

'      ���  In-a committee meeting last  week council decided to. hold  back on partaking in the func  tions bedause there is no indication what it's going to cost,  in actual'dollar value.  The Regional Board attempt  ed to pass resolutions at the  last regular meeting that would  give it responsibility for recreation and recreational parks  on the Sunshine Coast. But  Director Tim Frizzell suggested  the board wait for committment from the two villages.  If the villages joined the  functions they would share net  costs based on assessment and  not to exceed one-tenth of a  mill. Y  Gibsons Mayor Larry  Labonte said he wanted to  know exactly how much the  Regional Board Would ~be  spending on the functions and  what village taxpayers would  get for their money.
