Array ��*���'*��'���  4T  Provincial Library,  Victoria, B. C.  Printed and Published at Gibsons, B.C.  10c per copy  Volume 28,    Number 29, July 23, 1375.  No$ for Rec. director  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District has applied) to the  provincial government for letters patent on the function of  parks and recreation but the  board has indicated it is not  readjy to spend $15,000 for a  recreation director.  In reaction to a presentation  Thursday night by provincial  recreation consultant Djerek  McCooey, directors generally  felt the concept of a co-ordin  ating director was good but  "let's not talk about money"  seemed to be the conclusion  for the evening.  "We are only looking for  g-idelines," Director for Langdale. John MeNevin said, "let's  identify our needs and facilities first."  McCooey,, explMning the  province's interest in recreation, told directors that it was  of great importance to understand the ramifications of community recreation. '.  "Some people see recreation  only as a frill or a means of  keeping kids off the street,  McCooey said. "Others see it  as a regeneration of spirit, as  a vehicle for human growth,  as a means to self-confidence  and self identity." It is important for those at the community  level to view recreation in that  ultimate level."  He said the three main functions of the regional    district  would be to share the cost Of  facilities, to develop regional  programs, and to provide leadership training and sports clinics. \ -  McCooey said the province  would be willing to share the  cost of full time recreational  help. Grants towards a co-or  dinator for the first year would  be $4,000 and decreasing yearly  after that.  Randy Aubrey, recreational-director for North ISaianich  and Sydney, stressed the importance of recreation to the  board. He said recreation was  one thing that all people had in  common and that it served to  break idown parochial barriers.  Aubrey said when the financial situation is tight recreation is always the first thing  to be cut. "But a self-support  ing program does not have to  be a very expensive thing,"  Aubrey said.  Recreation, according to the  provincial consultants, includes  culture, arts and crafts, and  sports and social events.  Regional Board Chairman  Prank West said a recreation  commission made up of-local  people ��� would look after the  functions for the entire regional district.  No pipes,  Board may      no  pay $50,000  Acquiring-   Cooper's    Green  for  parkland  may   become" a  reality for the Regional district -  but like everything else these  dlays the price has gone up.  Recent negotiations with the  (provincial government have resulted man differ to pay up to  two-thirds of the total cost for  the Redrooffs Road property.  That would leave the regional  district responsible for the  other third' or $50,000. Earlier  commitments made by the  board amounted to only $32,000  flhe proposal from the Department of Lands,7Forests and  Water Resources also compels  the owner ��f tP1? pr^erty to  'construct a roadbed and the  regional district would 'be responsible for any repaving of  Redrooiflfs Road for the next  seven years. :  Regional board representative fpr Half-noon Bay, Peter  Hoemberg, gave notice at last*  Thursday's meeting ithat he  will move to spend' $50,000 for  the acquisition of Cooper's  Green.

Oceanside had  plans to build1 a 27 home cooperative but recent Island  Trust legislation has forced the  regional ���> board to turn down  '^eys^U.ekia.6n-tor- a land use  contract.,  Lawrence told the board' his  company had already done substantial work on the island  and hopes to continue the development. He said the only  thing the company wanted was  building permits for 27 home  sites. He said 15 home sites had  already been sold.  : Regional director John MeNevin said Oceanside's application was rejected because prior  approval had not been obtained either froni Island! Trust or  from the health department.  It was revealed' the health  department would not issue approval until main sewer pipes  had been installed and Ocean-  side refuses to install the pipes  until they are assured of building permits  The regional board was also  concerned about provision of  public access to Popham and  the fact that present zoning  would allow only nine home-  sites on the small island.  "Until 1 get a letter from the  health department I'm not anxious to go further," Director  MeNevin told the developer.  Lawrence indicated he would  seek such approval.  Popham Island is situated  between Keats and Bowen Islands.  Oceanside also asked! for approval for a "sea ranch" development on Gambier Island.  The' board was informed that  application is pending to the  provincial government to have  part of the 338 acres taken out  of the agricultural land freeze.  Lawrence said there was some  objection to a subdivision but  not to a cluster development.  He said Oceanside has drawn  up plans for a cluster development and a ranch area that  .would include animals, a pond  and a lodge.  This development will be  considered by the area planning committee.  *^%  >*<y  COME ON you'se guys move j as you can 'and if you don't let  over and let me do a little dig-, Y me help I'll teE my mother  ging.

Phone 886-2622        PO Box 460, Gibsons, B.C  Spirit of co-operation  The Sechelt vicinity situdy is a giant sitep in the  right direction. It will allow residents of the Sedhelt area  ffr> chart their own course as far as future development of  "the area is concerned.  But ttihere are more profound implications involved.  The study calls for full scale co-operation between the  native people and the whites of the area. At a time when  newspaper headlines indicate ugly confrontations between Indians and Whites, it is rather refreshing to see  the spirit of co-operation dominating our area.  Not long ago a. case before the provincial court in  Sechelt dealt with several Indian and White youths who  were involved in a conflict at a Sechelt dance.  After the trial, a Vancouver lawyer involved in the  case approached representatives of the press. He told  reporters this particular case Should be handled very, discreetly because it symbolized a much greater conflict.  He mentioned Wounded Knee and such places and expressed the, opinion that racial tensions were so high  in. this area that, to use his own words, the place was  ready to explode.  We're sceptical of this explosion. Sure there are  some .frustrated youths in the area but conflicts arise  between any two cliques of people regardless of race,  creed, color or religion.  Intelligent co-operation between native people and  whites is not in the realm of naive idealism in this area.  The Sechelt vicinity study shows exactly that. When we  read in the newspapers that Indians and Whites "threaten to take matters into their own hands" it is good to  know that exactly that is happening  on the  Sechelt  Peninsula.  It is also good to know that, unlike the situation at  Mount Currie and Gold River, negotiations here are conducted peacefully, intelligently, with the realization that  we must all be allowed to plan our own futures; and that  no matter what else happens, we are still all brothers.  Comment from Argentina  Here is a commentary on Canada appearing recently  in  a  leading  Buenos  Aires publication, The Argentina  Herald.  "Canada's economic hari-kiri ife remarkably similar  to what is going on in Australia and Britain. The U.S.  has more complex problems but it dis sliding downhill at  an even faster rate. Unless something fairly drastic is  done, the once comfortable position on op of the English-  speaking countries could crumble within a decade.7    '-���  "Canada, in theory, should be the best placed of all.  It is/the only industrialized country which is self-sufficient in oil. It has easy access to the American market  and American know-how. The productivity of its farmers  is legendary. If this were all that was required, Canada  would be booming. But. something has gone dreadfully  wrong."  * * *  A Dutchman was explaining the red, white and blue  Netherlands flag to an American. "Our flag is symbolic  of our 'taxes," he said. "We get red when we talk about  them, White when we get our tax bills, and blue after  we pay."  The American nodded. "I know what you mean. It's  the same in the U.S.A., only we see stars, too"  5 to 25 years ago  Five Years Ago  A resident complained tn  council about garbage burning  in backyards.

While a general economic recovery of modest proportions  is forecast for most developed  natio ns, including Canada,  there are serious uncertainties  facing British Columbia over  both the short and long term  future, according to a midyear  outlook prepared by the Employers' Council of /British Columbia.  On the positive side, external  economic forces can be expected to exert a beneficial influence on the provincial economy, the outlook states. However the less optimistic outlook  for British Columbia is the  result of special internal  cLncumstia'ncies. Included in  these are the probability of a  prolonged work stoppage in an  already depressed forest industry; a mining industry  where prices are sharply down  and further exploration and  development is at a virtual  standstill; a steadily worsening  record of industrial disputes in  general; and a continued  dearth of substantial new private investment by both existing companies and newcomers to the province.  The outlook was compiled  following roundtafole discussions with senior economists,  chief financial and industrial ���  relations oifficers, and the  Council's   Board  of   Govenors.  A slow, steady world econom  ic recovery, with emphasis on'  controlling inflation seems in  prospect. This is much to be  preferred to the far higher, and  potentially    uncontrollable, in  flation and ultimate unemployment which would .accompany  any attempt to quickly assume  the rapid growth rates of the  early 1'970's, the economic outlook states.  The British Columbia economy, which is exjport-oriented  and based predominantly on  the forestry and mailing industries, is presently seriously  affected by depressed world  demand for the products of  these industries. However, over  the long term even a return to  normal demand conditions is  unlikely to solve the. growing  basic problem of the BC forest  industry, which is the deterioration of its competitive position, primarily related to  decreasing productivity and  increasing labour costs.  Forest industry productivity  is considered to be twelve to  fifteen percent lower than in  the Pafoific Northwest of the  United iStates, while our wage  rates prior to the recent settlements in the US were in  excess of $1 an hour more in  the logging and lumber sectors  and $.50 to $.75 an hour more  in' the pulp and paper sector.  There is also little encourage  raent to invest in forest industry expansion in British Columbia when return on capital  investment oyer the last six  years 'has averaged six percent,  the outlook states.  'The longer term prospects  for the mining industry are  also grim. While existing mines  will probably return to higher  rates, of production as demand  returns, the provincial government's tax policies ��� have effectively eliminated the hope  of appropriate levels of reward  for new mines, and this has  brought exjploration and devel-  opmerit.. activity to a virtual  standstill.  There is every indication  that the anticipated reduction  in the rate of - wage increases  i*. going to start in the forest  industiy, to be followed by  other responsible industries,  the Council paper states. "The  longer the delay, the greater  the cost will be in terms of  competitive positions, and the  accompanying loss of jobs."'  However, in marked contrast  to the spirit of co-operation between management and labour  which has been evident in the  UIS 'and elsewhere, thereby as-'  sisting in fighting inflation and.  coping with recession, the  scene in British Columbia is  one of "growing intransigence  and confrontation." "In addition to the sheep waste involved, the movement toward  less labour-intensive types of  production within the province  can only be expected to increase under the current cli-  miate," the  outlook  continues.  Neither the labour movement  nor the Employers' Council, as  a matter of policy, commit to  a specific target figure they  consider desirable as a guideline for wage increases, commented Council president Bill  Hamilton: However, a general  .wiaige policy of gross income  maintenance and sharing of  productivity increases has  much to recommend itself at  the present time, he continued.  Under such a program, Hamilton said, "negotiations would  seek agreement on levels at  ' Which wages would keep pace  with increases in the company  concerned. To attract investment and develop the growth  which provides new jobs, part  of the benefits of productivity  increases must also be maintained in the company or distributed to shareholder-invest  ors." The general attempt by  unions to go far beyond such  limits is now generally recognized as the single most important factor in our . domestic  indfliation.  Demands by organized labour in all sectors of the province, the outlook states, continue to ignore the economic  realities of stagnant demand,  reduced rates of inflation, high  levels of unemployment, and  increasing! price competition  by countries with lower wage  levels. As a result, unemployment will remain high as only  government and government  institutions, and to a lesser extent utilities, construction and  transportation sectors, are expected to account for: much  hirinlg during the rermaindter of  the year.  "The resolution oil British  Columbia's particular economic  -woes must rest with British  Columbians and their leaders  in every field", commented  Hamilton. "It is not something  Which we can expect external  forces to resolve for us, nor is  it one which will disappear  Jautomlati_a(llly. Its resolution  must commence with talks between government, business  and labour in which narrow  self-interests and specific philosophical considerations are  set aside and a search commenced for fundamental agreement and understanding between the three parties which  will restore investor conifir  dence, reduce labour unrest  and labour-management confrontations, and encourage an  increase in balanced economic'  growth and prosperity for our  province.

For   starters,   its  setting is an hour away from  the  noise  and  hustle  of   big  city, far enough to offer taste  of   forest-charm,   but   close  enough, to be in touch with the  nerve  center, of creative  activity in Vancouver.  The Squamislh gallery sells  work by artists from all over  Canada, emphasizing the west  coast. Unlike the white-wall  museum-like sterility of most  galleries, this one chooses to  display paintings and sculpture in an environment close  to what you might like to find  in your own home. At the far  end of the main area is a round  fireplace: In the center, where  one usually finds a couch or a  few chairs, there are wooden  benches and tables with people eating and talking! It's all  part of. Braekendale's -concept\  of art as an active part of liW  ing; something to enjoy always,  hot only in special places in  hushed tones.  The Brackendale "restaurant" is an integral part of the  Gallery. So is the Brackendale  "stage." Once each week the  stage offers live performances  of music, dlanice or drama, representing high quality Canadian entertainment, some of  it previewing for the first time.  It's possible to sit down to a  bowl of slimmer soup or home  made cheesecake, listen to live  music on a grand piano and  view fine paintings and sculpture all at the same time. You  might even find a piece of  sculpture sitting on the same  table where you are having  lunch.  By now you will no doubt  realize that, although this does  seem to be an unusual art gallery, the concept makes very  good sense. That's because the  man who built it is not your  average art gallery builder.  With limited finances Thor  Froslev designed and construe  ted Brackendale from the  ground up. Labor was provided by hundreds of hard working friends, motivated by the  energy behind Thor's own  busy hammer.  Thor conceptualized the environment as a living example  Rocker for  St. Mary's  A rocking chair for St.  Mary's Hospital has been purchased from donations received  in memory of Mrs. Frances  Watts, Port Mellon Hospital  Auxiliary announces.  The chair was recently presented to the pediatrics ward  at St. Mary's by auxiliary president Rita Hincks. Director of  nursing Dana Kearney, was on  hand during the presentation.  Mrs. Frances Watts was a  hard working member of the  Port Mellon Hospital Auxiliary  of the importance of creativity  in our lives; the process as well  as the finished product. That  process is still flowing. Last  year a Canada Council Award  to the Brackendale Gallery  Society enabled them to erect  a second building containing  artist-in-residence studios and  a stained glass workshop.  If you haven't visited yet,  don't delay. It's 10 km. north  of Squamish on the Whistler  Mountain Highway (99). Every  thing, including the restaurant is open Friday, Saturday,  IStmady, noon 'til 10 P.M. In  my travels across Canada, this  certainly rates high in my book  of special finds.  Artists from this area having regular showings at Brackendale include Joan Thompson  Warn and Roberts Creek carver Ernie Burnett.  .!��,  ' -*. **>  Brackendale Gallery in Squamish  Cramer  -  Winn  On Saturday July 12 at 1p.m.  in Sechelt court house, a quiet  fiaimily service united in marriage, Diane Cramer, eldest  daughter of Mrs. R.

A reception was held in the  garden of Mr.     and Mrs.  A.  Winn before the young couple  left for Alberta.  The bride wore a long off  white gown with mauve flowers, a white picture hat and  carried a bouquet of mauve  mums and white daisies. The  bridesmaid wore a short print ���  dress and carried a similar  bouquet of pink carnations and  white daisies.  The mother of the bride  wore a white and black caften  style dress, while the groom's  mother was dressed in a blue  suit and hat with biege accessories.  For travelling the bride wore  a short blue suit with a corsage from her bridal bouquet.  En route the happy couple  stopped in Vancouver to leave  the bride's bouquet with her  great grandmother, Mrs. C.  Reynolds, who wlas unable to  attend due to poor health.  Out of town guests were the  bride's great aunt and uncle,  Mr. and Mrs. G.

The whole  thing is just a hoax. There's  no salmon around here.  None at all.  The myth has lasted too  long. For posterity's sake we  have to come to grips with  the truth. We can't go on deceiving ourselves this way  any longer. I'll let you get  away with calling this place  the Sunshine Coast ��� even  though it rains for more days  than I'd! like to remember.  But you can't tell me there  are any salmon out there. I  know, ' I've ��� tried enough  times. So help me I've tried.  I've fished off wharves,  I've fished off boats. I've  trolled and I've mooched and  I've hoo'ehed and one cold  morning I even dove involuntarily into the Strait of Georgia just to prove there was  nothing down there. And  there wasn't.  Just a little while ago a  friend asked me if I wanted  to go out fishing from his  sailboat. He had word of a  special little place called "the  hole." We had surreptitiously  caught wind of that esoteric  information usually known  only to the die-hard fishermen. The hole was hot.  Cratwling with big ones, they  said.  We got up early in the  morning, loaded up the gear,  picked up some live herring  (they're bitin' on herring, we  wrere told) and proceeded in  a cloud of blue exhaust towards "the hole."  The place was craiwling all  right. With boats and people  ���and fishing rods. It was like  national-sampan day in Hong  Kong ha-tbor.  Needless to say it turned  out to be a waste oif time. We  fished for an entire hour and  then decided to pack it up. I  remembered the philosophy  of an old timer who once  said "if they ain't bitin' they  ���ain't hungry." 'So what's the  use of hanging around. We  opened a can of sardines and  went sailing.  And then there was the  time I went out with the  pro. Now this guy is a real  fisherman He's known from  IPoint au Pic to Blubber Bay  tfor hauling in the 27 pounders.  "You've never caught a salmon before?" he said to me  in    amazement    one    night.  "You'll .have to ceme out in  the morning. Pick you up at  4 a.m." .  So there I go struggling  out of bed the next morning  ��� morning did I say? ���  imore like the middle of the  night. It's raininlg and cold  outside and I hope maybe we  can go another day, maybe  at the more reasonable hour  of  111   o'clock.  But no,  he's  right on time.  The next thing I remember  is stumbling around the Blow  Me Down, or whatever and  he's getting the lines ready  and telling me about what to  do and what not to ��� do. I  swear he had enough fishing  gadgets there to dazzle a  humpback whale.  As we bounced from wave  to wave my job was to juggle the hot coffee pot on the  Coleman stove and after both  the coffee mate and the first  mate (me) had hit the floor  two or three times, the pro  announced we had four lines  in the water and all we had  to do was sit back and wait.  ISo we sat back and waited.  And waited. And waited.  "I can't undJerstand it," he  said after a couple of -hours.  By that time I had consumed five cups of blaick coffee  and I was a little more  awake.  At first I had been impressed. Now I was my usual sceptical self. We waited  for another two hours and  since it was getting rougher  decided to head in. Sans salmon^  "I can't understand- it" said  the pro as he plowed the big  boat into the wharf.  I can understand it I  thought to myself, cold,  sleepy, hungry and miserable. There's no salmon  around here. It's all a myth.

G. Pressley, secretary treasurer ISunshine Coast  Regional District.  In February 1975 our representatives attended your meeting and reported later to our  club that you did not have a  firearms byialw outline. The  club wias also informed that  you would draw up a bylaw  proposal and forward us a copy  at an early date. We heard  nothing until your letter of  June 11 with newspaper accounts of the meeting following shortly thereafter.  Your June 11 letter now indicates that you expected proposals from the clubs. If such  is the case, the only proposals  the club cares to make is to  use the existing laws presently  in effect as they are more than  adequate.  We are against the banning  of firearms in any area. Owners o_ private property should  have the right to post their  land as they have always done.  Any laiws in addition to what  we have noiw would prove  nothing.  lori the event you intend to  oairry this matter of a firearms  bylaw any further, we would  appreciate a copy of the proposal prior to its first reading.  ���Mrs. Lark Buchanan  Secretary, ,  Miss Sea Cavalcade 1974,  Perry Bradshaw, represented  Gibsons at the Nanaimo Bathtub weekend July 18, 19 and  20.

This will be done  by means of a questionnaire,  which will be distributed to  local residents, property owners and businesses before the  end of July.  "Using the returns from the  questionnaire, the next step  will be to formulate goals for  the future of the area for public presentation and distoussioni.  Once agreement has been  readhed on the community's  goals and objectives, policies  will be developed for inclusion  in the community plan.  '"I_ie area to be covered by  the plan is defined as the land  ���and water area bounded by  lines joining Sargeant Bay on  the west, Tuwanek Point on  the north and Browning Road  on the east."

Norm Wat-  spn from the Village of Seohelt, and Peter Hdemfeerg and  Tim Frizzell, Regional:District  Directors from Electoral Areas  'B and C respectively.  In a press conference last  Thursday, Denwin Owen, economic consultant for the Indian Band said the Band under  took a study of reserve no. 2  several years ago "to clarify  some of our own goals." He  said the band realized at that  time that a more extensive  study was necessary.  "Communication is there  now and that was what we  lacked three years ago," Gilbert Joe said referring to relations between the band and  municipal and regional governments. "This will be a success provided the public is be  hind it."  The committee empih'asized  it is not attempting to create  one unit. The three jurisdictions will remain separate but  co-operate on all matters in  the interest of the people involved;  We want to establish what  tyipe of place .people want this  area to be," said Owen," instead of what the government  wants us to be."  Financing for the study will  come from the provincial government, the committee hopes.

Risbey said 10,000 persons  were expected; for the four-  day meeting, July 17 - 20. ���  In discussing the purpose of  ;the convention, Risbey said,  "It" is clear.5? that "the earthly  system: is like a close-woven  fabric. Whether we like it or  not, the nations are all interdependent. Yet this fact has  not brought them into cooperation, even though they see the-  desperate need for this.  "Why is it that the nations  cannot work out  their  prob  lems by cooperation? In particular, because they are divided  in so many ways," he said.  "They have different political ideologies, economic systems, social arrangements and  religious beliefs. And people,  as a result, often have deep-  seated prejudices against those  who hold views different from  their owta."  iSo the convention program,"  Risbey said, "will explore all  the problems coiiifronting mankind todays and systematically  review the ultimate solution."

For the past few months Gyro Investments has been trying  to get apiprovail from the regional board! for a 35 lot subdivision located next to the  YMCA camp in Langdale.  Representatives froim Gyro  appeared before the board earlier to explain their property  had! been placed in the provincial land freeze shortly after  it was bought. Approval was  needed from the regional district before land could be taken out of the freeze.  In a recent letter to the  board Gyro Investments stated  it would donate approximately  40 acres of the property for  public parkland! iif the board  would give appoyal for the 35  lot subdivsion on another part  oif the property. A third part  of the property, between the  park and the subdivision would  be left in the land freeze, the  board indicated.  Director Norman Watson,  who along with Director Tim  Frizzell voted against the motion to accept Gyro's offer,  asked regional directors if this  incident would open the door  to future developers. He said  the board was "setting a! horrible precedent that we would  have to live with."  Regional planner Adrian  Stott told the board the agreement would be like a land use  contract but without all the red  tape. "It happens all oyer the  place," said Stott.  Frizzell voted against the  motion beicause he felt it would  never hold up in court. John  MeNevin director for Langdale who initiated the motion  said he discussed the problem  With land Officials and the  swap was qpnsidered legal.  It is against general policy  of the regional district to allow  land to be taken out of the  provincial Jartd freeze.  If you're  out of shape/  you're out  of the running.

Other health organizations,  private or government, also  publis-i informative literature,  "most of which can be picked up  free at your dentist's office.  The CDA writes its pamphlets  to attract youngsters and make  an impression on them, without the preaching that usually  accompanies the urging of such  preventive dental measures.  Candy eaters, for example,  can't just be told not to indulge  themselves so much.

"Although the I.WJA. appears to be trying to hold the  line, there are still a good number of its mettribers which have  walked off the job," said! Colin  Fraser,'" Executive Rejpresenit-  ative of the BOILA. "The actions of the CPU and the  PFWC appear to be of a totally irresponsible nature, es-  peca'aiLly in the .light of the appointment by the Minister of  [Labour of Mr. Justice Henry  Hutcheon 'as a mediator in the  dispute.  Strike   action   at  this  time is an obvious show of bad  faith on the part of the unions  and their members".  . The BCILA contends also  that organized labour should  take a good, hard look at the  economy of this province, the  forest industry of which provides more than half of the  overall, and consider what the  consequences of a protracted  strike could be during this period of low markets in all phases of the timber industry.- If  the full provisions of the labour  code are taken advantage of by  the unions, and the dispute  goes on for several weeks,  which appears likely, the result  would 'be a crippling blow the  provincial economy, the forest  industry, and to those union  memlbers   themselves.  "We, as indejpendent logging  contractors, are not a part of  this dispute for the most part,"  said Eraser, "but our members  have always had to bear the  brunt of union bargaining in  the third party capacity. We  would implore the unions con-  cer to consider the economic  position of their employer companies in the light of world  markets, and to approach this  problem with the gravity it  deserves, rather than with the  hackneyed frivolity of datch-  u|p and the like. If they continue to follow their present  course, they will come to realize that 20% of nothing is still  nothing."

The  event starts at 7:30 p.m.  Following the pageant Twilight manager Ray Boothroyd  has scheduled an appropriate  feature film called Carry on  Girls. This segment of the British comedy Carry On series  stars Sidney James. Barbara  Windsor, and Joan S_m___s. The  plot, of course, deals with beau  ty queens.  Playing this week at the Twi  light is Harry and Tonto, starring Academy Award winner  Art Carney as Harry, a displaced New Yorker wiho goes  on a cross country odyssey  with his cat, Tonto.

This film features  Ostear winning Tatum O'Neal.  Her father Ryan O'Neal also  stars. Film classifier R. W. McDonald rates this as general  entertaimment but warns oif occasional swearing. Show times  are 8 p.m.  A SEARCH arid Rescue helicopter from Comoxfiew into  Gibsons last week to answer  an emergency call for Mrs.  Katherine Mason. The Vancouver woman was reported to be  experiencing maternity problems. She was flown to Vancouver General Hospital.  In recent negotiations with  the Department of transport,  Gibsons council was told the  pedestrian walkway along the  wharf could not be eliminated  but it may be. narrowed.  Reporting on a meeting with  Oapt. C. Brookes, regional harbor and wharves administrator.  Aid, Jim Metzler said council's  application to remove the walk  way was turned down because  Brookes felt it would endanger  pedestrians.  Council wanted' the pedestrian walkway eliminated and  made into part of the vehicle  approach because the present  approach is not largev enough  to maneuver the fire truck.  Metzler said Brookes believed the problem was due to  parking. The administrator  said, according to Metzler, that  council had received "concessions" up until now on wharf  parking facilities.  Metzler told council that  Brookes will give favorable  consideration to moving the  walkway to the other side off  the Wharf approach and shorten it by 30 or 40 feet to give  the fire truck more room.  Council also agreed to begin  charging Coast Ferries for  berthage. The shipping company uses the Wharf regularly  to load and unload goods.  Search for elementary site  Now that the great search  for the ISechelt Junior Secondary sdhool site is practically  over, the school board will be  embarking on another search,  this one on a smaller scale.  The motion passed by a committee of the whole last Thursday initiated, a site selection  committee to work on the site  for a proposed four room elementary school in the general  area of Pratt Road, Gibsons.  The site committee will be  chaired by Trustee Celia Fisher and will include represent  atives from Gibsons council  . andi the Regional Board.  School Trustees accepted the  recommendation of the building and grounds committee several months ago after a visit to  the area by an education department building review  team.  Conclusions of the review  team stated that enrollments in  JSejptemlber 1978 wol*lci necessitate another elementary school  somewhere between Gi bsons  and Roberts Creek.  discussions with municipal and  regional governments and the  B.C. Petroleum Commission and  after several s^tes were considered the Petroleum Commission indicated to the Band that  the priority site would be on  Trail Bay near Sejehelt.  Derwin Owen, economic consultant for the Sechelt Band,  has, stressed that the Indian  Band has no intention of wedging in and taking over the  distribution of the oil for this  area.  He said the Band undertook  the study with the support of  local governments and "we-are  making no assumptions ~ this  is only an option being offered  to the oil companies and people of the area."  "We hope no one will jump  to conclusions on this. The  study was only undertaken to  provide hard fa/cts," Owen said.  He 9aid the Band would  study the costs of the whare-  housinig facilities and determine what the profits should  be.  Copies of the study 'have  been sent to governments, oil  companies, and1 local distributors.  ' $ .. Y $ ... ���$.'.:."'; S��  Above average earnings sure  yours as a Fuller Brash representative.
