Inset earlier criticized local service  The consumer has won  major   victory.   Higtt  prices ��� long a thorn in, the  sides of-Sunshine Coast residents  ���  have plummetted.  Early last week the price of  both regular and premium  gas was dropped an average  of ten cents a gallon at Sun-  nyterestvEsso in Gibsons. At  least one other gas station  in this area, Gibsons Shell,  dropped the price of regular  gas. Prices at a third Gibsons gas station remain stable and. there was no indic-  tion whether or not they  would be brought down.' to  compete with the lower prices.'-,  Aiccording to Sunniycrest  Esso Yotwner ahd! operator,  Harold Phillips, who initiated the lower prices, -public  pressure and pressure from  Imperial   Oil   in   Vancouver  . forced the prices down in This  gas station. ..,.  Phillips said he was losing  a tremendous. amount of  business because his customers Were onl(y buying one or  two  dollars   worth   of   gas,  . enough to get to the cheaper  . selif-serviceL stations in Van-  t couver.;  He said as a result the gas  sales decreased in volume  all over the Sunshine Coast.  Has Own sales recently dropped from 35,000 to 25,000 gallons per month.  A consumers group, headed by Joe Kampman, was  formed last summer and-one  of the major contoerhs of the  group was to investigate the  high cost of gas and grocery  prices on the Sunishine Coast.  Kampman said at that time  that,Sunshine Coast residents  were victims of a price conspiracy and that residents  here were paying at least 28  percent more than in other  areas.  In an interview last week  Harold: Phillips said -he initially lowered his gas prices  toy a feiw cents but he realized that it would still not  be competitive with Vancouver prices. He said his profits would be lower and he  could_ still not expect a significant increase in business.  The present price, he said,  (was arrived at after Imperial  Oil arranged, to provide the  station with a subsidy. The'  subsidy increases as prices  decrease although not on a  proportionate scale. Phillips  said for every five cents that  -he   lowered   his   prices   he  would;  see   an   approximate  two cents increase in subsidy.  He added that Imperial Oil  had given him authority to  . go down as low at 69.9 cents  for a gallon of regular gas.  Asked what This cost price  was per gallon, Phillips said  the Vancouver cost price is  presenitty 69.9 cents per gallon and transportation to this  area adds another 2% cents  per gallon which brings the  cost price up to 72.4. This includes a ten cents per gallon  federal tax ahd a 17 cents  provincial tax. Y  Phillips said his move to  lower the prices would not  Ibe popular with other gas  station operators in this area  (but he also felt something  had to be done to get the  prices lower.     .  "I have to live in this community," he Said, "and I  twould like to see the prices  kept down:" Asked about  earlier allegations . that lie  admitted to charging "what  the market would bear" he  said those were not his  words but rather the words  of Joe Kampman who was  of that opinion.  (Continued on Page 7)  \  Resident lanes considered for ferries  "I say let's experiment with  resident lanes because it may  ���work in this area;" This statement was made by Don Lockstead, ML A fbr^Mackenzieirid-_  ^ angj ^wKb told Stiiishine Coast  residents in the Gibsons Legion  Hall last Friday that he has  received "a monstrous petition" to consider resident lanes  for the ferry terminals in this  area.  Lockstead made a brief visit  to the Sunshine Coast last  tweek along with the provincial  (Minister of Transport, Carl laden. The visit was slcheduled  prior to the December 11 election announcement to give the  minister of transport a first  hand look a ferry operations at  Langdale, Earl's Cove, and  Powell River.  Lockstead   told   the   group,  CARL LIDEN  many of them NDP supporters,  that more people are coming  <to the Sunshine Coast and that  improvements in transportation  would have to be made to accommodate those people.  ' Lo_kstead pointed out that,  paradoxically, residents of this  area want improvement- in  transportation but not more  people. He said he has asked  regional districts and municipalities to come up with a re  gional plan of growth for the  area and he expresed concern  ���because "I don't want this  area to become a bedroom  community like North Vancouver. "  Lockstead added that some,  consideration was * being given  to a direct 3% hour ferry link  between Horgieshoe Bay and  Powell  River.  "ISuich a link would have no  impact on the business community in this area because  studies have shown thait people drive right through," Lockstead said. "It would save that  horrendous drive."  In an earlier speech, Transport Minister Liden said new  tferries were now under construction for the Vancouver Island-mainland runs and that  one of the vessels now on that  fun would be used to service  the Sunshine Coast.  "It is our desire to have the  Queen of Nanaimo placed on  the Horseshoe Bay-CLangdale  mm," Leiden said. He added  that larger ferries would also  ibe placed on the -Earl's Cove-  Saltery Bay and the Powell Ri-  ver-Coimox runs.  Laden said to accommodate  the larger ferries many of the  terminals would aiso have to  Ibe enlarged.  Lockstead told the crowd he  iwas personally committed to  improving the transportation  system here but he would be  unable to accomplish miracles.  He said improvements are now  toeing made and cited the purchase of the $il'3 million Queen  of Surrey and present construction of three new vessels  including a 'truck ferry for  Vanlcouyer Island.  Lockstead said the previous  (Social Credit) government  had placed _ a freeze on new  vessels and" when the NDP  government took over there  ���were no plans and no money  set aside for ferry improve-  menits.  In a brief question and answer period near the end of the  meeting, one resident who said  he was an old age pensioner  claimed the present journey to  Vancouver was "awkward and  expensive." He suggested1 the  terminals should have free  parking wihich would reduce  tears on the ferries. He said  better   bus   connections   were  gives  _j>OIN l_i>i.K-TE__JL��  also "needed. v  Commenting on this, Laden  said the emphasis was now being changed from the automo-  (bile to people and buses.  After the meeting, Laden told  reporters that a hydrofoil run  was being considered to run  On an experimental basis between Horseshoe Bay and Nanaimo.  Asked if 'he had any ideas  to lighten the B.C. Ferries financial deficit, Liden said the  ferry system would never be  a paying proposition because  the passenger rates would  have to be too high. He said he  would attempt to strike a medium between the free ferry  'concept and one that was entirely seH-sustaining.  Liden said the provincial government is still trying to get  a federal subsidy because the  ferries constitute part of the  Trans-Canada Highiway system,  operating in the maritime pro-  He pointed out that ferries  vinces were being subsidized  toy Ottawa.

Deadline  for the negotiations was November IS'.- After tliat date bargaining would have been forced to compulsory arbitration.  Negotiation^ started in this dis  trict September 29.  In a joint school board-STA  press release it was announced  that the 1976 payroll package  will be the maximum permitted by the federal wage guidelines once the guidelines have  been clarly established. The  board has expressed its intention to pay the maximum permitted even if the guidelines  come in at over 12 percent.  Slchool principals will not get  an increase in wages this year.  According to the press release,  the principals' salaries will remain essentially unchanged but  a different payment formula  was devised which reduced to  some extent the difference between small schools and large  schools and elementary and  secondary schools.  Also negotiated, but not part  of the payroll package subject  to the guidelines, were improvements to compassionate  leave, calculation of experience  increments, professional devel  opment training opportunities,  the establishment of a cleaT  schedule for the appeals pro  cedure, and other minor changes.  The changes to the basic sal  ary scale have been made in  such a way that persons with  similar income tax exemptions,  will receivesimilar increases in  takehome pay. Usingr an aveis  age i>2 percent scale, this would  provide a 9.2 percent wage increase to the highest paid  teachers and a 14.56 percent increase to the lowest paid.  If the guidelines limit the  average increase to eight per  cent, actual increases would  fal between 5.83 and 10.29 per-  mes maximum  cent.

SECHELT  Hovercraft visits village  Last Sunday afternoon a Canadian Coast Guard hovercraft  sailed into Gibsons harbor and  settled in the boat ramp area  at the foot of Pfowse Road.  About 30 children and 25  adults who are members of  the Sunshine Coast Power  Squadron enjoyed riding on  the unique craft despite the  pouring rain.  Captain Tom Potts with first  officer L'Heroux and engineer  Campbell were treated to a pot  luck supper at the United  Church Hall supplied by the  ladies of the Power Squadron.  Captain Potts and crew explained the workings of the  hovercratft to the group. The  creiw later sailed the craft to  its base at Vancouver International Airport.  Council Briefs  Aid.

Already some of the candidates and all of the leaders have released their first salvos and some pundits are  predicting the "dirtiest ever" political campaign.  We hope those pundits are wrong. We hope that the  candidates for all political parties will respect *he intelligence of voters and stick to the many and varied ;  issues rather than haul out meaningless charges which  only confuse the total picture.  Surprisingly, both the New Democratic Party and  Social Credit have a similar challenge facing them. Both  of the major contenders must convince the electorate that  their philosophies are not extreme to either the left or  the right. Their success or ultimate failure is likely to  depend on their ability to attract the "middle of the  road" voter who sees the need for moderation.  We hope, perhaps in vain, that party organizers will  reject the temptation to conduct the types of campaigns  of fear which have been typical in this province in the  past.  We believe that voters have matured to the point  where they are less likely to listen to hysterical dribble,  regardless of the camp from which it might originate.  ', We believe that the people in this province want a  government that is fiscally responsible; attentive to the  social needs of its people and willing to take a hard line  to ensure that short term gain will not result in long  term disaster.  During the next few weeks there will be a lot of  talk about what will happen ori December 11, but what  happens after that date is more important.  In order to make a proper choice voters need facts,  not cheap rhetoric. The party, the leader and the candidates who present those facts in the.most logical and  honest manner deserve the public's support.  ���Chilliwack Progress  A paradox  The provincial Minister of Transport's visit to Gibsons last week manifested one of the basic paradoxes of  life on the Sunshine Coast.  A great number of residents call this area home because life in the cities has become unbearably crowded.  Here, there are fewer people, life is slower and as most  confirmed Sunshine Coasters would concur the quality  of life is consequently superior.  On the other hand, Transport Minister Liden and  MLA Don Lockstead continually receive complaints  about the ferry system��� our primary link with the rest  of the world. In Lockstead's own words, people here want  improvements in the transportation system but not the  people. ���      ���   .  It must be recognized that the factors in this paradox are irreconcilable because we can hardly have one  without the other. If we insist on having an improved  ferry system to the point where we have larger ferries  running more hours per day, we must also recognize that  that in itself is an invitation for the city dwellers in Vancouver to come and share our choice piece of real estate.  Even now, commuters in the lower mainland think  nothing of spending between one and two hours on the.  highways commuting twice a day between jobs in downtown Vancouver and their homes in Port Coquitlam,  Haney br even points farther out in the Fraser Valley.  The only factor that now prevents the tide from moving  north to the Sunshine Coast is the ferry in between.  ��� We, of course, are not proposing a no growth concept  for the Sunshine Coast. That would be a fallacy and  probably an impossibility. But we should recognize that  when we call for better transportation between here  and the city we are also eliminating the insular nature  of our area ��� one of the major factors that gives us the  ''superior" life-style.  OF SHOES AND SHIPS AND SEALING WAX .  So what are the issues...  "He whose honor depends on the opinion of the mob  must day by day strive with the greatest anxiety, act  and scheme in order to retain his reputation. For the  mob is varied and inconstant, and therefore if a reputation is not carefully preserved it dies quickly."  ��� Benedict Spinoza (1632-1677)  I took another sip of beer.  "I think I'll vote for Paetkau," said my friend on the  other side of the table.  I was caught hy surprise.  I knew my friend to be a  long time NDP supporter  and of moderate social philosophies.  "Why?"  "Well I've been doing a  little thinking about it and  he just seems to be the best  choice.  I protested.  "But you've been a socialist since the day you were  born".  "I know."  "Then why are you voting  for someone who doesn't believe in social policies?"  "I'm  not."  There was a moment of  silence as I tried to figure  out what was going on  through my friend's head.  Then he asked me if I hadn't  been reading the newspapers  lately.  "Sure I've been reading  the newspapers." I said. I  work for one."  "Well then- you know he's  a socialist. Look at his ideas,  his philosophies. He's more  socialist  than   I   am."  '  I thought for a minute. I  acquiesced. But I still didn't  understand.  "But so is Lockstead a  socialist." I said. "And just  last week we were agreeing  how hard the guy has worksd  for this riding. A lot of people like him around here.  And besides, he's got labor  behind him."  ''True, but at the same  time he's turning into a politician. He's been in Victoria  ifour years now and I've been  noticing some changes in  him."  "Changes? How?" I asked.  "It's   like   working   for   a  n<ewspaper. vYou . get  cynical ?s  after a while." ''"'  "Well what's that got to  do with Lockstead?"  "It's the same. You spend  a few years in the midst of  the political bureaucracy and  it does something to you. It  hardens you. It also makes  you a little cynical. I've  noticed the change."  "Sure he's . changed," I  told him. "He's probably  more realistic. / He's had  some experience with the  big boys and -he's lost some  of his idealism. He's rro longer naive."   .  "That's what I like," said  my friend.  "What  naivity?"  "Idealism. Politicians should  keep   their   ideals   like   the  people they  represent."   v  "But Paetkau will lose that  in a hurry. Look he's already  more self assured. He walks  around with a big bow tie  and he looks like a used car  salesman with it."  My friend said nothing  and looked into his beer. I  continued.  "The first time I interviewed Paetkau for a story he  asked me afterwards not  to make him look foolish because he was so new at the  game. Look at him now, he's  cocksure. Did you hear the  nomination speech he gave  in Pender Harbour? He's a  pro already."  My friend continued to  stare at his glass.  "Bo," he said. .  "So that shows you your  naive little Eric is already  losing his innocence. He's  going to be a big boy politi-  tion in no time. Just like  Lockstead."  "There's another reason  I'm voting for him," said  my friend. I looked across  the table and raised my eyebrows.  '^The NDP are the underdog in this election and I  don't like supporting underdogs. I go for the winners."  "That's kind; of a trite  reason. Come on you're not  that fickle." ' -  "(Sure,     everywhere    you  look there's a Social Credit  presence, Signs all over the  place. Everyone's talking  about  Social   Credit.''  I knew he was talking  tongue in cheek but I pursued the argument.  "But that's because the^y  have the big money behind  them. Free enterprise and all  that you know. They're getting the bucks from the big  companies and they're doing  a splashy campaign. Spending twice as much as the  NDOP."  "Well it's working."  . "But if you have strong  convictions about something  you're not going to change  it Just like that. What about  the issues?"  My  friend  looked,  at  me  hard- /  "Issues?" he said. "What  issues?"  "Come on. there are.a lot  of problems that should be  taken care of."  : '^Problems, sure. Everybody  has their little pet problem.  Look when it comes right  down to it you think what  is this guy in Victoria going  to do for me personally. If  you're a businessman and  business is bad you're going  to go free enterprise. You  want the money in your till,  right? If you're a tealcher  you're probably going to go  NDP because . history has  shown that the teaching profession has prospered much  more under an MDP-'goyern-  ment than they have under  the Socreds. And so on. Now  that's where the issues are."  "But there's more than  that involved."  "Sure there's more. You're  talking about the so-called  issues brought up by the  parties themselves. They  make an issue because they  can make themselves look  good by pushing or critizing  a particular thing. Bennett  keeps ibririging - up ICBC.  It's a thorn to the NDP and  they know it. And that whole  fiasco is extrapolated tp try  ROB DYKSTRA  and make the government  look like idiots when it  _omes to administration.  You've also got Bill Bennett  getting the scoop on Barrett's news releases. The B.C.  Rail announcement. That's  not an issue. Bennett only  . wanted the publicity. " And  on the other side you've  ���got Davy Barrettt.-, He's always bringing Socred skeletons out of the closet to try  and label Bennett as a greedy  capitalist and sell-out artist.  Why? Because its advantageous for him. It gives him  a bit of an issue that puts  him in a good light. And the  media lap up the whole  thing because it gives them  copy and it justifies their  existance."  "You were talking about  cynicism earlier. Aren't you  a little that way right now?"  "I'm being realistic," said  my friend.  "But you just said you  weren't voting for Lockstead because he's learned  the roroes and he's too realistic."-       "Yep that's what I said  and that just goes to show  you that it's no use arguing  politics in the pub because  you end up exactly where -  you started."  "Bo I'll go back to where  we started and ask you why  you're voting for Paetkaiu."  "Well, elections are very  personal things despite all  the so-called issues put there.  Everyone needs something to  grab on to ��� something to  believe in. Paetkau's my  surgeon and he did a good  job on my knee last year.  Let's call it confidence."  I looked at my friend  across the table. Wryly. He  started to laugh.  "Who are you voting for?  he asked. . .  > "I don't know, I've never  had a knee operation."

It took the Hustler's only three  minuteis to retaliate as they  scored on a goalmouth  scramble on which goalie Jan  de Reus had no chance. Score  at the end of the first half was  1���il.  In the second half of the  game Gibsons came out with  strong ball control. The wanderers controlled the game for  an entire 30 minutes which  allowed Danny Paul to score  on a break-away. With only  eight minutes left in the game  Gibsons' Dan McKay had an  outstanding scoring opportunity but the Hustler's goalie  was equal to the task.  On the ensuing play, the  Hustlers passed the ball up  and set up a break-away. Wanderer goalie Jan de Reus rushed out and checked the ball  carrier but an opposing player  following the play recovered  the ball and.'scored on a long  curving shot.  The game, which was rough  throughout, ended two minutes  early when goal-keeper Jan  de Reus was injured- Final  score was 2���2.  Excellent efforts were turned  in by Steve' Miles, Dave Neu  man, Kerry Eldred, Dennis  Hollis, and Dan McKay.

Migrant birds stop at Creston Marshes  The marshes of the Creston  Valley stretch wide and flat  from th^foot of Kootenay Lake  to the United States border in  British Columbia's West Kootenay country. Each spring and  fall, thousands of waterfowl  flock to the valley to use it  as a resting and staging area  on their long journeys of migration.  During the fall, more than  250,000 birds swoop into the  valley to break their journey  south. These migrant ducks,  geese and swans are following  a path called the Pacific Fly-  way; the Creston Valley i*  about midway along this fly-  way that leads the birds south  to their wintering areas.  Most tyipes of ducks and  geese make a stop in the Creston marshes: from Canada  geese that will head for interior states where open water  exists through the winter to  blue-winged tea) that may fly  as far south as Brazil.  The valley has always been  an ideal place for people to  catch sight of the flocks of migrating birds. Since 1968, both  the birds and the watchers  have been getting a boost from  the Creston Valley Wildlife  Management Area authority  That year, 16,000 acres of the  marsh land were set aside for  "the purposes of wildlife conservation management and  development."

Dykes and other water control devices have been built  in the marsh.  A second part of the project  involved measures to make the  marsh more accessible .to  people. Viewpoints and observation towers give visitors a  chance to watch the wildlife;  dykes and trails let them get  closer to the marsh.  Each summer, biologists  from the Canadian Wildlife  Service take visitors on canoe  trips,   marsh   crawls   (rubber  boots provided) and hikes,  complete with explanations of  the marsh life around them. In  the spring of 1976, the Creston  Valley Wildlife Centre will of  ficially open, with displays on  ecology and other marsh-related subjects.  To reach the wildlife centre,  drive west on Highway 3 from  Creston and turn south just  before the end of the marsh.  Biologists at the centre are  available to answer questions  and provide maps of ,the Cres  ton Valley area.

Teachers name   For your printing phone 886-2622  priorities  The British Columbia Teachers Federation has announced  that their involvement in the.  forthcoming election will be  non-partisan and concentrated  at the local level.  BCTF President Bill Broadley said teachers played a significant role in defeating the  government in the 1972 elections but this year "that role  will be diftferent."  Expanding the scope of bargaining is a long standing issue  with the BCTF. Teachers remain the only occupational  group in the province excluded  from negotiating for working  conditions.  In the ' area of educational  finanice, the BCTF has called  for continued progress in the  provision of fund�� for elementary-secondary edsuication, special program approvals, funds  for smaller classes, and for  school construction.  The BCTF would also like  to see changes in education finance to recognize special  needs suldh as niral and non-  English speakinig schools, and  the removal of School tax from  residential and farm properties.

Phone 886-7896 or 886-7700.  iNegotiations between Seaside Village and Sechelt council are at a stalemate again because representatives of the  development arev unrolling  to put up three insurance bonds  for inferior quality houses. The  insurance bonds were set by  the village at a value of between $30,000 and $40,000.  Stop work orders were placed oh the three houses earlier  because an inferior quality concrete was being used to build  the foundations. A recent committee meeting between Seaside and the village resulted in  an agreement that the developer would post an insurance  bond1 on each house to provide  against failure of the foundations.  Apparently the owners of the  three homes  have  agreed  to  accept the below standard  foundations but the village of  S'echelt is not.  The developer, represented  by Bud Cairns, indicated they  would post a bond valued between $500 and $1,000 to cover the cost' of repairing the  foundations if necessary. The  village insists the bond should  cover the cost of the house.  It was earlier revealed that  the"-cause of the inferior -quality concrete was a high content  of humus in the aggregate mixture. Tests conducted by Building Inspector Roy Taylor re-  stand a pressure of only 530  vealed that the concrete could  pounds per square inch.

The improved new  highway is now paved from Sechelt right to their door.  NOW IS THE TIME.TO CALL ��� 885-9998  and talk to their Chef, David.  He has many good ideas  Editor; I'm not writing this  letter to say anything for or  against any political party  but after reading a recent  newspaper article on Dr. Eric  Paetkau, I had to write the  letter to give my views about  one section of the i interview  concerning the Ambulance  Service.  I have been a part time employee of this service since  the Government took over  most of the ambulance services in B.C.  on July  1,  1974  It was mentioned in Dr.  Paetkau's. interview that we  pick up drunks at the Peninsula Hotel and take them to  the hospital in Sechelt and it  costs the drunk $5.00 for the  ride; when they could take a  taxi which would cost them  $15. And this ambulance would  cost the Government $75 an  hour, to carry this drunk to  the hospital.  Well in the first place, T  think I've been on most of the  calls we had to the Peninsula  Hotel and yes, we've transported people to the hospital that  are under the influence of alcohol but they always have  some type of injury usually  caused from a fight or a fall,  and I'm sure Dr. Paetkau will  agree with me on how unpredictable and dangerous a head  injury can be especially when  caused by a two by four, bottle  or even a fist.  At 2 A.M. we ambulance attendants don't get overly excited about getting out of bed  and taking a person to the hospital just because he's drunk,  but, if an injury is expected  we transport the person immediately because that's our  duty and we don't mind doing  it.  And in the second place it  was mentioned in the interview  thait it costs the government  $75 an hour to take this drunk  to the hospital in an ambulance  Well we part-time employees  get paid the same if we're  gone for an hour or 4 hours.  After 4 hours we're paid for  another 4 hours with no overtime at anytime. On a day call  we get from $14-16 and night  call $19.21, the exact amount  depends upon the attendant's  qualifications, so the most a  call could cost the government  for two attendants would be  $42 for four hours. So with  this rate it costs the government $10.50 an hour plus other  expenses such as gas, wear on  the vehicle and the book work  in Victoria, iwhich I'm sure  doesn't cost $64.U0. A call like  the above mentoned could cos.  call waiting for us in Gibsons  $21 because we could have a  when we get baick so we go  again and don't get paid any  exftra because we're still within our four hour period.  iSo instead of complaining  about a most needed community service for the sick  and injured I think a thing  like a persons qualifications  for welfare benefits should be  given more attention.  ���tR. W. LEACHMAN  Fact or fiction?  EDITOR; Regarding, the case  of the purloined briefcase:  For a real-life small town  thriller, Gardner could not  have dreamed up a more convincing title. The story-line is  a joke, a small town joke. It  winds up something like this.  The man who wants to be  premier of British Columbia  receives a letter (in a plaiu  brown envelope, mark you)  whose contents he believes  can be of political advantage.  Knowing that the letter had  been stolen and that decent  people consider mail to be private and confidential, he exposes the contents saying nothing about thievery about  which he apparently couldn't  give a damn.  It seems that is the mentality of the man who wants to  be British Columbia's next  premier so badly he can. taste  it.  Do British Columbians  want that kind of small town  leadership?  ���H. F.

The British Columbia Price Freeze has been working since  October 24th, 1975. Here are some statistics and recent news  about the program.  DURING THE FIRST TWENTY DAYS:  ��� Nearly 1,500 people contacted the Department off Consumer Services to get additional information on the  Price Freeze.  ��� Of these, about 800 were business people and about  700 were consumers.  ��� In the same period, consumers registered 91 formal  complaints about price increases.  ��� The department resolved 81 of these complaints, and in  each case merchants rolled back any unjustified price  increases. The other ten cases were still under investigation.  Your support makes if work.  Few complaints about price increases have been received  largely because consumers and businesses are fully supporting  the freeze.  The Department of Consumer Services has met with representatives of all the major retail and wholesale food and drug  outlets���including supermarket chains. All have pledged to support the freeze program.  Continued corjjact with these firms is helping to ensure that  the price freeze operates with the least possible inconvenience  for both sel lers and shoppers.  SOME SUGGESTIONS FOR SHOPPERS  Shop for October 24th prices.  THE FREEZE COVERS FOOD AND BEVERAGES (except in  restaurants), PRESCRIPTION DRUGS. AND PROPRIETARY AND  PATENT MEDICINES-AT THE PROCESSING. WHOLESALE AND  RETAIL LEVELS.  Any item in these categories offered for sale on October 24th  at a particular store has its maximum permitted price frozen at  that particular store. Prices may be reduced and raised aaoin. as  lono as thev do not ao above their October 24th level.  So it will pay to shop for items covered by the freeze.  New items (brands, sizes, qualities, grades) not offered for  sale on October 24th are not covered by the freeze. So once again,  it will pay to shop around for the hundreds of regularly-stocked  items which are covered by the freeze.     * \  ' . . ' <'  How to find out what the October 24th price was.  Ask to speak to the store manager if you have any questions.  He or she should have a list of prices for all items offered for sale  on October 24th.  Many of the retail chains are also placing special signs next  to items which were not offered for sale on October 24th and are  not covered by the freeze.  How to register complaints.  If you believe there has been an unjustified price increase,  first bring the matter to the attention of the store manager.  If you are unsatisfied with the explanation, fill out the complaint form below and get it to us. Extra complaint forms are available at some supermarkets, and at offices of Government Agents  and the Department of Consumer Services.

The Barrett government, in attacking and restricting  the major industries of this province, has succeeded in  destroying economic growth. It has frightened away the  investment dollars that put people to work. It has lost the  heavy flow of tax dollars that should go to government from  thriving resource industries, the very dollars that provide  programs for people who need assistance.  To.get B.C. moving again, we need a government that  will work responsibly with industries and. establish strong  policies that will create jobs. We need a government that will  end mistrust and restore confidence.  On December 11th, remember 100,000 men and women  out of work. Vote Social Credit.  Social Credit.

Minister  Carl liden asked British Columbians to give the present  government a new mandate in  the December 11 election.  OLiden, who was accompanied  by MLA Don LoSekstead, told  a crowd gathered in the Gibsons Legion Hall Friday that  the NDP government is proud  of such, accomplishments as  Mincome and Pharmacare and  that such programs cost a  great deal of money.  "You can make all kinds  oif promises on programs," Liden said, "but you must also  tell us where you are going  to get the money."  Liden said the Socreds have  promised to retain these programs and improve them "but  we had to set up the system to  get the tax revenue." He said  the major and most logical area  from wihich to derive those  taxes is the province's natural  resources.  He cited the $100 million  from natural gas revenues that  will noiw stay in the province.-  He noted the Social Credit op-  positipn voted against the natural gas tax bilL  "I question where all the  money is going to come from  ��� it just doesn't go together,"  Liden said referring to the Social Credit election promises  and their philosophy to abandon the natural resource taxations. v  Liden also criticized the Socreds for proposing to ehmin-  aste the Lands CotminissSon-  "It disturbs me a great deal  that our prime agricultural  land will become part of the  speculative scene." He said  land in the Fraser Valley is already owned by people who  have addresses in Hong Kong  and the Mediterranean and if  the land commission is eliminated "we will become, tenants  in our ofwn land."  _ Liden added the ISoereds  would make agricultural land  the responsibility ,of regional  districts and municipalities but  that was the situation before  and that was a very dangerous  situation.  "If for no other reason the  people of B.C. should give us  a mandate,"  Liden said.  Near the end of the meeting  MELA Don Lockstead received  thanks from several senior citizens "for all the work you've  done for us." Lockstead said  he would pledge his continued  support in the caucus and the  ���legislature.  The Roberts Creek Community HaU made a festive picture,  with the gaily decorated, well  stocked stalls surrounding the  tea tables with-. their bright  Christmas centre pieces, and  the head table with its gleaming silver tea services.  The wonderful crowd of  friends were greeted by Mary  Steele, convenor, who introduced Mrs. Margaret Hauka. Worthy Matron of Mt. Elphinstone  .Chapiter No. 65, O.E.'S. Mrs.  Hauka thanked the folks for  attending and introduced Mrs.  Grace Cumming, P.)M., who  briefly outlined the projects of  the chapter and commenited on  the lovely items for sale at the  various booths. She wished everyone a pleasant afternoon,  and declared the bazaar open.  Selling was brisk during the  first hour, as purchases were  made from friendly sales members, and those in charge of  raffles and guessing ga__e_  were kept busy selling tickets.  Soon the te tables were occupied by friends ready to enjoy a cup of tea and dainty refreshments, while recalling  other OES affairs. Past Matrons presided at the head table during the tea hour.  The tickets for the raffles  were drawn by Jim Foster, a  member who came from Vancouver for the event.  For all your Printing needs Ph. 886-2622  SUNSHINE SKETCHES  Reading the three S<unshinfe  Coast newspapers last week  you would have come across  three similar stories with  three similar headlines. The  headlines went something  like this: "NDP powerless in  first week," "NOP office  powerless," and "Seichelt  NDP seek power."  Seems some people are a  little disappointed in the objectivity of the press. They  claim there is a blatant anti-  NDP bias in the heads.  IThe story, of course, stated  that the NDP office in Sechelt did not yet have any  , electricity and 'campaign  (workers- had to cope with  candlelight and kerosene  lamps. A little play on words  resulted in the NDP being  'without "power" which could  be taken to imply that the  party had no political power  and were seeking same.  Whether there is any political bias in those headlines  is an argument in itself but  the point that concerns us  here is that the story was  put out as a press release by  the Sechelt NDP and as a  press release it contained the  headline: "NDP - no power."  This contains the same play  on words as any of the heads  by the three papers and.if  there is any bias then it certainly did not originate with  the papers. They merely varied the original head in order  to have no duplications.  Did the NIDP office in Sechelt have any complaints regarding the "bias" in the  heads? Of course not, said a  campaign worker, we wrote  the news release and it was  specifically written with a  play on the word "power."  The campaign worker's reaction when told that a complaint had been received via  this paper: "Doesn't anybody  have a sense of humor any  more?"  Further on politics (what  else is there these days?)  NDP campaign worker. Ross  ICatmeron would like to remind all party supporters  that newspaper advertise-  imenits coming from anybody  /but the official campaign offices, must ciarry disclaimer  lines at the bottom informing readers as to who placed  the ad. It seems there have  been a fe(w political ads placed in the papers that the par-.  ticular party involved would  not sanction.  ��*�� ��i�� **��  '  ��_��� 3fC ���*���  A very profitable night  'was had by Gibsons Lions,  states a report on the Gibsons  Lions club Reno night.
