Printed ahd Pi-blis-ied at Gibsons, B.C.  10c per copy  Volume 28,    Number 38, October 8, 1875.  ���".Striking pulp, and propane gas workers on the Siuni^hine  Coast may be back to work within 48 hours after the provincial  government announced special legislation ordering workers),  and management in four different labor disputes to call a 90  day truce.- ': ���.���������.- "... :.���-.:     .'y '.'   '   ...  Bill 146, known as the Collective Bargaining Continuation  Bill, was given Royal Assent late Tuesday afternoon after a  special one day session called apparently only to end the  natural gas dispute.  IThe legislation!, introduced  into the house yesterday after  a special caucus meeting, was  passed by a vote of 43 to 3..  MLA Don Lockstead was one  of those who voted in favor of  the bill. It affects labor and  management in disputes involving gas transportation, supermarkets, B.C. Rail and the  Forest Industry.  The bill forces management  to re-instate all employees and  allows for aY9Q-day truce in  which management and labor  are to meet bread-on in collective bargaining.  After the announcement by  Labor    Minister    Bill    King,  Premier Barrett said his government would not stand by  over such a long period of  time and allow the situation to  continue to jeopardize this province.  He called it an unusual step  ���and unexpected but said his  government had a responsibility to the total community  of British Columbia.  "We are not destroying collective bargaining ��� we are  ���clearly saying get on with it  and get your heads together,"  Barrett said.  In Victoria, MLA Lockstead  said the bill was passed for  the good of the people of this  Village adheres to 1975 budget  A report brought before Gibsons council Tuesday night indicates that for the first nine ^  monthi. of Operation the village '  ���\ revenue expectations have met  the expenses as forecast in the  '���':i^^ftiiio1^k^^mp]y^y;^ -���%  InTVmakihg the: report to  covCncU^_\Icfc;Kutt Hbe__heA said  $553,600 or 74.1 percent, of the  budget had been spent during  the nine months from January to September.  Hoehne said during the preparation of tihe 1975 budget",  council felt it could not carry  but many of the work programs because of inflation and  a stable tax rate. He said in  view of that fact council has a  right to be proud of what it  has achieved so far.  He pointed out that water  and sewer were not included  in;the figures of his report because both are self-liquidating  assets.  Naming some of the highlights of council's, achievements so far, Hoehne cited the  purchase of public recreat-orr'  property, the extension of municipal grounds, purchase of  new municipal equipment,  closing the ditch along Highway 101, paving Gower Point  Road, and the development of  the water distribution program  He said fire protection had  also been ungraded along with  an upgrading of sewer utility.  Hoehne said: "Even against  news of near bankruptcy of the  village, our programs have  managed to increase the assets  considerably without adding  new debts to the village."

He said in principle '-'.  he did not believe in government intervention in management-labor disputes but in this  case all collective bargaining  bad broken down.  Lockstead said he felt that  management was in a good position to hold out for a long j  time and the legislation was in  the best interest of the workers involved.  *  Here on the Sunshine Coast,  Ron MdPhedran, president of  the Canadian Paperworkers  Union local 11119, said "we are  utterly bewildered" by the  government's actions. He said  he could not understand the  government's priorities and  was seriously disturbed because "this legislation means  an end to collective bargaining."  MefPihedran   said   his   local  called    a    special     executive  meeting after the announcement, from, Victoria. He plan  ned to meet with other locals  Wednesday to determine a  stand on the matter.  One decision resulting from  the. meeting was that, out-of-  town picketing of other forestry industry operations will  come to a halt. MdPhedrari indicated the picket lines at  Port: Mellon would remain for  -the time being.  Referring to Lockstead's vote  ���iii favor of the. legislation, McPhedran said many of the local's memlbers were upset with  the MLA's decision.  Art Gruntman of the Canadian Paper-worker's Union.said  the news was absolutely unbelievable. He said the cooling off period doesn't mean a  thing and he was of the opinion that the government was  (Continuedvon Page 7)  THE   ABOVE   sign   makes   it  quite   clear.

Gibsons man killed in crash  Development stands heard  Gibsons council; chambers  bedame the battle ground Tuesday night for the continuing  war between Impax Development and Crucil Road area  residents.  Brian Johnston, representing Impax told council and  about 25 Gibsons residents  that the proposed development  to be constructed on Highway  101 and.Crucil Road was not  a shopping centre.  The development is to house  ten apartments, a licensed restaurant, a furniture or carpet  showroom, and professional offices. The proposal for rezoning from residential to commercial is awaiting second  reading by council. It has recently gone before a public  hearing.  Johnston said the apartments  would be low profile thereby  not spoiling the view of existing houses. He said resident's  fears that the parking lot  would become a speedway  were unwarranted because the  parking area would be served  by one exit that could be closed off at night after business  hours.  Showing a scale model of  the development, Johnston said  the area would be appropriately landscaped for aesthetic and  acoustic purposes.  ."We want it to be a quality  operation ��� there's nothing in  Gibsons that can come close  to the quality of this operation,"   Johnston  said.  He said some people were  ���afraid their surrounding pro-  pety values would go down  but that Ray Winterburn of  the B.C. Assessment Authority  indicated property values  (Continued on Page 7)  ��� A single-vehicle accident last  Thursday claimed the life of  one youth and sent four others  to hospital.

They were Brad Norris, Wil-  lian Bafn'hart, Russell Nygren  and Scott Lockhart all of Gibsons.  Gibsons RCMP said the vehicle was north bound when  it went out of control and  struck a utility pole. The time  of the  accident  was  approxi  mately 6:45 p.m.  Police said cause of the accident is still under investigation. A coroner's inquest is  pending.  Another single-vehicle accident last week, sent a Sechelt  man to Lions Gate Hospital in.  North Vancouver.  Wesley Anderson, the driver  and lone occupant of a late-  model car, suffered hip injuries after the vehicle left Highway 101 about one mile south  of Sechelt and went into the  ditch.  Sechelt RCMP said damage  to the vehicle was estimated  at $2,000.  Labonte, Metzler for re-election  Gibsons Mayor Larry Labonte and Aid.

Ferries information officer  Bill Bouchard in Tsawwassen.  Earlier unofficial reports stated that the Langdale  Queen would be scrapped and replaced by the Queen  of Tsawwassen and that the Sunshine Coast Queen  would be altered into a -truck ferry for the Horseshoe  Bay-Nanaimo run and replaced by the Queen of Esquimalt.  "There's nothing like this in the works," Bouchard  said last Thursday. He said the Langdale Queen will  go into refit December 17 for one month and will be  replaced by th? Queen of Sydney. The Sunshine Coast  Queen will go into refit January 16 for one month and  be replaced by.the Queen of Tsawwassen.  Bouchard did add that after 75 years of service  "tSie Langdale Queen is coming to the end of its useful  life."  "But the earliest we can thing of replacing it is  next summer," he said.  Three new vessels are now being built for the  Vancouver Island runs. Bouchard indicated that one of  the vessels presently on the Island run may replace the  Langdale Queen sometime next year. 2     Coast News, Oct. 8, 1975.

B.C  Give it a chance  When Premier Barrett returned from his European  excursion last year he carried back some excitement  about an old European tradition. He said he liked the  idea of the neighborhood pub and immediately declared  a change in legislation would allow British Columbians  ot stroll down to the corner pub with friends and neighbors for a pint of ale.  Many people welcomed the neighborhood pub concept in the hopes that it would provide an alternative to  the dark, dingy beer parlors and dungeon-like lounges.  Many people welcomed it in the hope the new concept  would finally release us from the stodgy and archaic  liquor laws and perhaps result in a change in drinking  philosophies.  We all knew it was high time to discard that pioneer  initiated myth that implies you can drink 12 beer or a  bottle of Scotch within the hour or you just don't make  it ais a 'man.'  It was aso refreshing to know that some of bur gov-  erning fathers in high and holy places were allowing the  proletariat to exercise some responsibility. If given the  opportunity and a civilized place to drink ��� where it  is not a crime to stand up and sing a song or two if you  are so inclined ��� the average person could probably relate to alcohol with responsibility and moderation.  Premier Barrett's idea was probably a good one. If  only the bureaucrats would give it a chance and allow  it to develop.  Sure there have been a few neighborhood pubs  spring up around the province. But not nearly enough  to establish the concept.  A large part of the problem seems to be that there  are so many stringent rules and regulations involved in  the establishment of a neighborhood pub and so many  levels of government and departments with their individual criteria to meet that an individual wanting to open  a pub is defeated even before he begins.  In the case of the proposed.Selma Park pub for example, the application for rezoning was initially ^ rejected by the Regional Board planning committee because  the property didn't meet the parking requirements. Then  one director rightfully pointed out that the neighborhood  pub was supposed to be pedestrian oriented anyway and  that a large parking lot would turn it into a "neighborhood drive-in pub." Good point.  Now the Department of Highways in Victoria has recently rejected the application for the pub because it  happens to be located along the highway. That department said business would be generated from the highway  rather, than being pedestrian oriented.  If the concept of the neighborhood pub is to follow  the European tradition then ideally every neighborhood  would have its own pub ��� just like, every neighborhood  has its own corner grocery ��� and the need for the automobile would be practically eliminated.  While it may be true that the average North American and his automobile are presently bound n a 'till-  death-do-us-part relationship it is also true that we would  do well to provide alternative means of transportation.  One of these alternatives is called walking. If all pur  present and future decisions involving lifestyles are to  presume the use of the automobile we may as well forget  about concepts such as the neighborhood pub.

Canadian educators are  caught in the throes of a fad  we mis-name 'outdoor education.'  Theoretically, the fad sounds  good ���\ until one examines  just what this 'nature experience' really involves. Generally, city students are transported to a camp,' where a week  is spent in a more or less natural setting ���- or they are driven in vehicles to visit relatively natural areas for day trips.  True to our scientific tradition, they disturb the study ;  areas, doing what Wadsworth  disparaged, when he wrote:  'Our murdering intellect/Misshapes the beauteous forms of  things;/We murder to dissect.'  How can our youngsters gain  respect for nature, and the  land when their studies involve  destruction and disturbance to  organisms and ecosystems?  Most 'outdoor education' programs are only hollow. Band-  aid attempts to compensate for  the wrongs of urbanized, industrialized life. The idea conveyed that it is unusual to be  outdoors ��� and that one can  go only with some specific pur  pose in mind. No consideration  is given to the need of all humans simply to enjoy being put  in our 'natural home.' Instead  students 'murder to dissect';  they dig, collect, examine and  destroy ��� performing in miniature all the acts so damaging  to the delicate fabric of Mother Earth.  These programs have no underlying philosophy ��� they are  merely the mindless following  of 'a good thing.' Outdoor experiences should be an integral  part of all schooling ��� and it's  time .educators did some thinking about the ideals that must  underlie such programs, if they  are to have any good results.  Whether you hold to the  Biblical account of creation, or  to the theory that we evolved  over countless eons of time,  you must surely agree that man  does have an important role to  play on this planet. The Bible,  in Genesis, states quite specifically just what that role  should be: 'And the LORD God  took the man, and put him  into the garden, to dress it and  keep it.'  Man's proper role on Space  ship Earth is that of stewardship of the land ��� a role currently completely negated by  our life-style. We destroy nature for short-term monetary  gain; and henice live beyond  the ability of the earth's resources to support us. We must  develop an ethical relationship  to the land from which we  draw our life and nourishment  ��� otherwise we shall soon  cease to exist. Such a need  will provide a taproot, from  which education can draw its  sustenance and purposes for all  time. t  A curriculum that provides  regular and frequent observation of nature'will lay the  goundwork for the life-long habitual contact with the land  that all humans need. Let's  get back into the real world  of nature ��� and sink our. roots  in deeply. This applies equally  to urban and rural schools ���  urban students could get out  into surrounding countryside ���  walking of course ��� or observe the city to see if man  really does control nature or  not. There would be no need  for 'experiments' prescribed by  '   ������������_  ��   V       A. \  **  gy^v^s*-.  ^tWWftftfltftj.H). .(MWM^^ iiiW��������g�� *-+> *��*���* j  y^|iaft|��^��->����<taW*W^*J*^  ..jj.jyi.ii'f�� .v-^&liii i��ft|H^r'iTiv'M"ir-  INDIAN Basket maker in Se chelt around early 1900s  Top rating saves MFA $32 mil.  The Municipal Finance Authority of B.C.. which in the last  four years has borrowed $168.5  million for the province's ' regional districts and municipalities, has obtained one of the  highest financial ratings in  Canada.  As a result of the high rating  it is estimated that the MFA  could save about $32 million  over the next 20 years. These  savings would in turn result in  direct savings for the regional  districts and municipalities for  which the MFA borrows funds.  MFA Chairman Mayor Ron  Andrews of North Vancouver  District said that the three U.S.  rating agencies ��� Moody's,  Standard & Poor's and Fitch's  ��� have all given the Authority  a double 'A' rating.  "It s interesting to note that  only the Government of Canada and the Province of Ontario have a rating slightly  better than the MFA," said  Mayor Andrews, "and of the  many other governmental agencies in Canada only the provinces of British Columbia. Alberta and Quebec have ratings  equal to the MFA. All other  agencies have lesser ratings."  Mayor Andrews said that the  high rating from the U.C. credit rating agencies "will result in a saving of Va, of 1%  which, considering that the  MFA will be borrowing an estimated $70 million per year,  will result in savings over the  nex/t 20 years of some $32 million."  All  28  regional  districts  in  B.C. are members of the MFA.  FIVE mm.

We need also to make the  ethic of reverence for life a  basis for schooling. We maintain our lives only at the expense of other life ��� and must  repay this debt by giving to  all living organisms as much  aid as possible. Albert Schweitzer, who formulated the idea,  wrote, "Life as such is sacred  .. . ." and said .that we should  not take life unless under the  "pressure of necessity." Current school programs do not  heed this principle ��� school  children, as well as university-  educated biologists, disturb and  destroy life, in a vain attempt  to explain the ultimate mystery. If we were truly civilized  we would not use death and  destruction as the means to  the end of adding to our store  of 'knowledge.'  Our technology - oriented  world is in serious trouble,  both economically and spiritu-.  ally. What are the proudest  achievements pointed to by the  proponents of the status quo?  Do they not point with pride  to the split atom, our huge  earth-wrecking machines, luxurious automobiles, and the  general glut of material possessions? These are the causes  of the environmental problems  that now sicken Mother Earth.  We are truly threatened with  destruction ��� reluctant though  we are to f ace" that fact. We  lack the wisdom to confine our  technology ��� so our technology confines us. Where will we  find the wisdom necessary to  a renewal of our lives, and of  our society? That wisdom can  only come from deeper study  of Nature than we dare undertake yet ��� and the schools  should be in the forefront,  pointing the way to the rest of  society. True outdoor education  ' would fulfill this purpose.  Thoreau once wrote, "Wisdom does not inspect but be- ,  hold. We must look a long time  before we see." Education does  not come from dissecting, destroying and pretending to answer the mystery of life ��� but  from looking and observing the  world surrounding us. Once  this becomes the guiding principle of teachers, we shall be  on the right track ��� and if  such a change does not occur  soon, it will in all probability  be too late for humanity.

Questions  Get involved  Editor: With reference to the  Village of Gibsons expansion  plans, could it be explained  through the newsk media for  general public assessment the  more factual reasons on the  need for the village to expand  its boundaries?  It is my opinion that further  expansion is unnecessary, that  we are over-governed as it is  with too many levels of government trying to survive for  parodhi'al reasons. A district  municipality from Egmont to  Port Mellon with adequate representation per capita would  function more than adequately  to resolve any problems for  each area within such a municipality.'  As it is now we are open to  a divide and conquer group of  mayors, aldermen and regional  representatives subject to the  dangling of dollars in the form  of real estate development who  buy and run leaving the homeowner to foot the bill. Any  form of long range planning  being co-ordinated between  these governments is out of the  question.  Some of the questions requiring answers are:  1. Exactly how will the taxpayers benefit?  (a) If you live in the village.  (b) If you live in Area E  (c) If you live in Area F  (d) If you live in Granthams,  Hopkins,  Soames,   Langdale  (e) If you live in Port Mellon  2. Will these areas be subject  to further rezoning to accommodate  (a) Subdivision expansion by  developers?  Ob) Commercial expansion  by developers.  (c) Loss of minimum lot sizes  to squeeze in more houses to  raise more tax dollars?  3. How will services be provided that the village is having difficulty in providing  now?  (a) Water supplies.  Ob) Garbage collection  (c) Fir& protection.  (d) Postal services  >   (e) Sewers  (f) Snow removal  (g) Roads and ditching,  (h) Police.  4. Exactly what by-laws now  in e_fect will affect the new-  areas? (Building business license, fire, traffic.)  5. What voting voice will the  new areas have on council?  It has been my experience  over the years that village affairs are not as open or acJ  countable to the taxpayer as  might be expedted and the aldermanate portfolios are generally weak with most of these  elected officials leaving their  interests in the hands of the  Clerk who is in 'a position of  powerful influence not always to the benefit, of the  smaller taxpayer.  The newer Regional -concept  has had its problems and growing pains to be sure, nevertheless I have found them more  accessible, firmer in plans and  decision making, much more  progressive in their approach  to services, and the monetary  cOn__n_t_nents on the tax-roll  more specific to outline the disbursement of the tax dollar.  I would be pleased to see a  reply from any village representative outlining answers or  reasons as factually as possible  for publication. I don't think  the public has really received  a proper outline of the necessity for expansion nor have  they had any response on the  views of the Regional board or  provincial government representatives as to favoring the  proposal or not. ....  It's time again for ratepayers  to fiind  out what's  going on  and not wait until it's too late  except to pay the bill.  ���CLIFF MA-HD-jMAN..  PLOW WE'VE GROWN!  In 1931, Canada had a population of 10,377,000.  Editor: In British Columbia  the publicly elected school  trustee represents your interest in education at the local  level ... and in some areas  of this province that interest  is pretty low.  School trustees are elected  for a two year term. In all  areas except Vancouver nearly half of the trustee seats  come up for election each year.  Last year, the trustees who  filled more than 65 of these  seats were elected by acclamation. That's over a third of  all trustees elected in B.C. last  year!  Some very good people become school trustees through  acclamation, but a lack of in  terest in running for school  trustee and in voting in trustee elections is an alarming  indication of the local com-  munty's apafihy about education matters. (  This public apathy could  conceivably put school boards  out of business. Before you  think "so what," let's take a  look at the alternatives. What  would happen if the provincial  government decided tomorrow  that the school board was not  getting the job done because  the community was not involved in this level of government?  There are two possibilities I  can think of. First the school  boards might be taken over  by the municipality and run as  a committee of municipal government. I don't kno��w how  you feel about that, but I work  on a school board and I know  the amount of work which has  to go into critical decisions in  the complex area of education.  In my view there is absolutely  no way that a municipal council could handle its own business and the sohool district's  as well, without the administration of schools suffering ���  and in the end our children  would suffer too.  The second' alternative is  that schools could be run directly from Victoria by the  Department of Education, but  bureaucracies are too complex  and too remote to respond to  local needs.  For a community to keep  control of its public schools  there must be public involvement and commitment. Not  only do we need the best qualified people to run for school  trustee, each of us needs to get  out and vote, and then utilize  the board as our link between  the schools and the community.  Whether you have a child in  school or not, the outcome of  the November 15 election will  have direct bearing on you in  the areas of school taxation  and solid planning for the future of your community's education system. The education  of our children represents the  future of our community, so  please get involved!  ���MIKE BERG,  President, B.C. School  ,   Trustees Association,  We object  The following letter was sent  to Gibsons Mayor Larry Labonte and council protesting  the* planned commercial complex on the corner of Crucil  Road and Highway 101. The  letter was written by Mrs. Pat  Fromager and signed by 16  other Crucil Road area residents.  We strongly object to the  proposed rezoning from single  family to commercial at the  above site.  When the first lot was sold,  it was sold on the understanding that nothing would be in  that subdivision but residential, single family homes. Holland Park and the B.C. TeVara  the only commercial premises  from the front and the rear,  that are pleasing to the public  It is not realistic to believe that  promises re the upkeep will be  kept. Promises regarding commercial properties , have not  been kept in the past and there  is absolutely no assurance they  will be kept in the future. It  is distressing enough to look  now upon the mess at a commercial property at Crucil and  Highway 101 and promises  have been made for over eighl  years that improvement would  be made, to no avail.  The model of the proposed  complex shows there will definitely be a . "speed-��way" off  Crucil, a perfect turn-about to  101. The noise and lights and  action from the commercial  property will be nonstop.  The proposed rezoning from  a   relatively   quiet   residential  area to a commercial area is  absurd, and private homes in  , the area will, no doubt, have  their property values lowered.  We >would,also like to point  out that the entire community  Should be advised and involved  .   in this ridiculous scheme.  Busing law  The following is a copy of a  letter written by school board  Secretary-Treasurer Roy Mills.  The letter is addessed to Mr.  George Hopkins, President of  Sechelt School Bus Service.  I had two conversations with  Mr. Jerry Brown of the Motor  Vehicle Branch yesterday. In  the first one he pointed out  Very strongly that it is illegal  to carry more students than  the- vehicle is permitted for. I  understand from his discussions with, you that he understood the vehicles to be permitted to carry 37 students.  My second conversation advised1 him that the school bus  inspection reports signed by  Sergeant Nowlcki dated the 6tb  of March, 1975 show' passenger  seating capacity of 55. On this  basis Mr. Brown stated that  the buses can carry 55 students  and there is not, in fact, a legal  mandatory maximum of 37  passengers. He went on to say  that the requirement wias now,  that the passengers be seated  and be comfortable. He agreed  that the term comfort is capable of interpretation and I  ���read to him the draft policy  that1 you already received. He  indicated that these seemed to  be quite realistic from the  point of view of practical comfort.  Even had he not agreed however, I must make the point  now as strongly as possible  that it is legal to carry up to  55 students on the buses operated by you and that the determination of any lesser load-  ing will be by the board and  not by yourself.  I would add at this point that  the slchool bus data sheets  which I submitted to the Department of Education, and  which were based on loadings  of 37 students were not received with any great favor by that  body. Inasmuch as the operating grants from the Department of Education to the board,  to offset the payments that we  make to you, are based upon  their approving the routes, it  may prove necessary to review  some of the routes in order to  obtain approval and therefore  their financial participation in  the transportation operation. 1  am certain that for the forthcoming school year they will  require greater loadings than  two to a seat before they will  be prepared to approve the  routes.  I believe it is necessary at  this point to require that you  state in writing that you will  be prepared to have your drivers abide by any bus loading  policy that the board cares to  establish provided that sucfh  policy does hot result in the .  vehicles carrying more than  the rated capacity of the bus.  Pending the formal adoption  of Board policy in this regard  I am advising you that your  drivers may not arbitrarily  close their bus doors at any  stop where there are students  wishing to ride the bus unless  the bus is loaded to rated capacity, i.e. 55. At present, I anticipate that this will require  the picking up of more stu  dents   than  at present  at the  following locations:  1. Granthams, on Mr. Mullen's second run in the morning. He has already indicated  to me that he believes he can  carry these students in safety  and comfort.  2. The Pratt Road-Chaster  Road stop on Mr. Bunyon _ sec  ond rim of the morning.  3. All afternoon runs from  Eolhinstone Secondary School  co Sedhelt, areas beyond Sechelt- and areas along the Sun-  snne Coast Highway between  Gibsons and'Sedhelt.  I estimate that the foregoing changes will result in average loadings of around 45.  ���R. MILLS, Secretary-  Treasurer. Board of School  Trustees.  Hopkins replies  The following.is a copy of *  letter written by George Hop  kins, president of Sechelt  School Bus Service. The letter  was addressed to the Chairman  of the Board of School Trustees, School District 46, Sechelt.  Dear Sir: Having read ai\  three local newspapers cover  ing the last School Board meet  ing, I find it absolutely incredible that the board in its entirety would resort to such in  timidation or what" might be  construed as blackmail. 1  would suggest that my position is, either I disregard the  rules as set out by the Motor  Vehicle Branch or the.Board  will look elsewhere for school  bus transportation.  To substantiate the above,  may I quote from the Peninsula Times: "Mills said if a board  policy is established and the  bus contractor feels he can'*  comply, the board would have  to look elsewhere." The Coast  News: "He can review his position or he can tell us he can**  operate under the contract,"  The Shopper: "Mills stated that  Hopkins has two options, either  he cannot operate under the  present contract or he can review his position."  To clarify my stand regarding the number of high school  students to be carried, I took  the time tb check with the following persons, who, in my  opinion, would be more than  qualified to interpret the legis-  (Continued on Page 4)  Coast News, Oct. 8, 1975.     3  Sunshine Sketches...  The irony of the times. Canadian Propane workers are on  strike and so, of course, are  the Canadian Paperworkers.  What happens when the CPU  union office runs out of propane? They phone up the gas  company, of course.  And they did. Canadian Propane manager for the Sunshne  Coast, Jim Mathieson. said last  week he had made some emergency deliveries to people in  need of gas for their furnaces.  Apparently,   the   local   CPU  office also wanted to put on the  heat.   Did   Jim   deliver?   Yes.  When  you're  hungry  of   cold  who .cares about principles, eh?  A lady from Soames Point  called  the  Coast  News  office  last week. She asked if there  was a walk-a-thon or anything  like that happening here.  u'Not that we know of."  "Ridiculous things," she said.  "Waste of time and energy."  "What, the walk-a-thons?"  "Yes. certainly."  'But   ma'am   they   usuallv  raise money for a good cause."  "Yes.   I know,  but  do they  have to use up all that energy  for walking? ��� can't they do  something   more   productive?"  The ladv from Soames proceeded to explain that she was  seventy-some   years   old   ahd  that she's just spent the last  three days hauling up her winter  fire woodi  She  says   she  can't hire anybody to do it folr  less  than  an   exorbitant  rate  and why couldn't the students  do it to raise money for a project.  Splendid idea n'est-ce pas?  Instead of walking, say from  Gibsons tb Sechelt, individuals  could do odd jobs for people  who can't do them themselves.  In the case of this lady's fire  wood, for instance, someone  could be sponsored for ten  cents an armload or whatever.  One Gibsons alderman thinks  this village should have two  seats and two votes on the regional board. He said regional  board representatives are chosen according to population  criteria and not geography.  Anyone have a.municipal regulations handbook around?  The season is almost over but  sometime back, Sechelt council minutes stated a resident  complained of tennis court  "hogs." Easy solution to that.  Send 'em a summons and take  'em to court on charges of unlawfully allowing swine to run  at large.  A minor hockey official said  some of the cheques he's received recently from parents  of hockey players are from  banks in different parts of the  province.  "One cheque was for an account in Parksvile," he said.  SO, some people have Swiss  bank accounts. Others have  Parksville bank accounts.

Gibsons scrum-half Roger  Douglas did a masterful job of  co-ordinating the play between  the hard charging scrum and  the speedy back-field. In the  first half his fine support of a  long run by the three-line enabled him to take a pass from  Ken Johnson and score from  20 yards out. In the second  half Douglas' alert play and  quick reactions around set  scrums allowed him to recover  two loose balls and take them  in for trys.  Inside   centre   Ken   Johnson  added two other trys. His first  score came from a long run by  Bob Johnson who passed to  Ken who was. in the clear. The  other was scored when he took  the ball away from the Rower  fullback in the endzone and  touched it down for the try.  Gibsons had a good hard-hitting performance from aggressive stand-off Pat Gaines. On a  try scored by Bob Johnson.  Gaines ran over the man trying  to mark him and moved down  the field before giving the ball  to Ken Johnson who passed to  Bob Johnson. Johnson outran  the opposition to score.  On another Gibsons score  Bob Johnson again carried the  ball downfield and before be  ing run out of bounds he threw  a perfect over the shoulder  pass to fullback Bob Crosby  who was joining the three-line.  Crosby ran the remaining 25  yards unobstructed to score.  The rest of the Gibsons scoring was supplied by John Crosby who added two converts.  The Rowing Club scoring  came from three penalty kicks  as Gibsons'kept the opposition  from scoring a try for the second game in a row.  Gibsons next game will be at  home against the Trojans on  Saturday, October 18. The  game will be played at Langdale school field starting at 1  p.m.  GIBSONS Bobby Emerson attempts to gain yardage by  popping ball  forward in  Sat  urday's rugby game against  Vancouver Rowing Club.

That's just over your ski socks.  HIKING THE SUNSHINE C0AS1  A surprise to find it  One hike you might like to  try some sunny Sunday afternoon is to Surprise Lake. It's  called Surprise Lake because  as far as the writer knows it  has no other name ��� and it  was a surprise to find it.  To get there, drive along  East Porpoise Bay Road and  take the turn-off to the garbage  dump. It's on your right if  you are coming from Sechelt.  Drive a few hundred yards  past the dump and park your  vehicle off the side of the road.  If you're less energetic and  have a four wheel drive you  can go up farther but that defeats the purpose of the hike  So now that you are walking, follow what appears to be  the main road. It leads off to  the left in a north-westerly di  rection. You hike up a long incline and when you reach the  top you'll come across the  road splits. The cable line  leads down the road to the  cablevision' towers. Here the  left, you take the one to the  right.  A mile farther down this  road you will see a lake off to  your left just through the  trees. Look closely and you  will find a trail through the  trees. A pretty picnic spot, this  lake is a beautiful example of  the lakes conumon to our rain  forests.  This hike is especially nice  after a light snowfall. Have; a  good day.  IL  SHOCKED?

Coast News, Oct. 8, 1975.      7  By ROB DYKSTRA  The PM should keep his own belt tight  The opinions of those who  cry out against public 'floggings aside, our dear Prime  Minister should be taken to  Parliament Hill for a public  and nationally televised!  spanking.  Tsk,. Tsk .he Prime Minister has done it to us again.  All these political rattlings  about responsibility and res-  , traint and all the bedlam  about governments staying  out of the bedrooms of the  nation and Mr. Trudeau can  not even stay out of his  own. Nothing but pillow talk  to merely woo the provincial  damsels in distress.  When word seeped down1  to the press in Ottawa that  Mr. Trudeau had1 called a national press conference in thei  back room of the Chateau  Laurier, all the members of  the fourth estate immediately  abandoned their games of  chance and flocked to follow  the call of duty ("Oh boy,  free drinks.")  Expecting nothing less  than the long overdue delivery of a commitment to  wage and price controls, the  bottle brigade came doiwn in  double coverage and double  breasted   zoot-suits   only  to  disappointedly discover that  Mr. Trudeau was merely  handing out fres Jamaicans  (Cigars, that is).  "Yes, mmm, it's number  three," he declares in his  post-nasal voice. "Six pounds  and nine inches."  And that, of course, drawing a barrage of unusually  profound and indiscreet  questions from the members  of the press: "Could you tell  us what that is in metric  please?"  Perhaps in the naive '50s  and the prosperous '60s the  announcement of a bouncing  baby boy was a particularly  joyful event. But in this day  when puberty and the pill  walk hand in hand and the  well being of our welfare depends on keeping our personal productivity down to the  minimum the whole thing is  no less than a national scandal.  Why even Immigration  (Minister Robert Andras has  recently indicated that immigration into this country may  be severely aborted, because  the ethnic melting pot is already overfflowing. We just  don't have enough soup to  go around.  Had the most recent Trudeau offspring sprung into a  family of plumbers or pipefitters, it would be no matter for concern. The boy  would grow up throwing mon  key wrenches hither and thither an(3, unhke similar action by his father it would  not have the effect of draining the national economy.  Furthermore, the lad would  have contributed more to the  gross national product of this  country unplugging sinks and  toilets rather than by his  present'destiny which will no  doubt see him snug and secure in some Ottawa office  contemplating the Canadian  navel at the expense of the  inflation-ravaged taxpayer.  What we need in this country right now is not a greater production of people but  more people who can produce. And your proliferation,  Mr. Prime Minister, is not  the right kind.  Politicians all across the  land are panting about control and public restraint. We,  the electorate are getting  tired oif being told to tighten  our belts. Especially when  the Prime Minister himself  doesn't keep his own tight.  Phone 886-2248  Box 238  Gibsons, B.C.  Charles English Lfd;  REAL ESTA1E & INSURANCE  GIBSONS, B.C.

Don Lanskail, chief spokesman for the forest industries,  said the companies will obey  the letter and the spirit of the  law. This feeling was echoed  by Bill Hughes, manager of  the Canadian Forest Products  mill at Port Mellon.  Hughes said Tuesday afternoon that he had not had a  chance to study the legislation  but he said."we will certainly  abide by the legislation."  He said the mill will make  attempts to start operations  within 48 hours depending on  the decisions of the union. He  added that it would be a major  job to resume operations especially in the instrumentation  and: electrical areas. "I am not  optimistic that production can  begin immediately."  Hughes said he was happy to  see an end to the strike but he  added that the legislation was  not the best'way to end it.  The forest dispute which  started in Port Mellon July 11,  directly affected 3ff5 local GPU  members. The original union  demands included a $1.50 per  hour pay increase, a 37% hour  week, and more statutory holidays.

SPECIAL TRAVEL FEATURE  An entire street straight out of the 1900s  You're driving quietly along  the highway between Victoria  and Nanaimo, watching the  road and the trees flash by.  Suddenly, your attention snaps  to the side of the road .There,  just a few yards away is what  seems to be an entire street  straight out of the 1890s.  And that's just what it is.  -You have arrived at Whipple-  tree Junction. Art Dawe, one  of the owners of the junction,  explains:  "We decided to build a street  to look like a typical street in  a Vancouver Island small town  at the turn of the century. We  wanted to let people have a  look at a part of history they  might otherwise never see."  Whippletree's main street  has a livery stable, a fireball,  a general store, a barber's shoo  a clothing store, a blacksmith's-  gunsmith's shop, a garage and  a stove store.  Above a secondhand store  where furniture and knick'  knacks are sold is the "west'si  first indoor mall," with an ancient phonograph collection, a  bootery, a photographer's studio and a pharmacy.  Bach of the stores is filled  with turnof-the-century memorabilia that Dawe and partner  Randy Streit have collected  from across Canada and the  United States.  In the pharmacy for example, are bottles of medicine  that advertise they can cure  anything from a cold to a case  of worms ��� and the alcohol  content listed on the bottle suggests that the medicine will at  least make you forget what ails  you.  High-button    boots, . wicker  baby carriages, dusty old pots  and bottles, an ancient horse-  drawn hearse,' old phonographs  with their huge funnel mouths,  hip baths and elegant velvet  robes nudge up against old cars  and horse carriages, huge wood  powered drill ��� and woe be-  stoves and a dentist's foot-  tide you if the dentist was old  and weak, or his foot tired.  "It's too expensive for people to own this sort of thing  anymore," notes- Dawe: "We  figured we could set this thing  up and then for a nominal fee,  people could see what things  looked like 75 years ago."  iStreit and Dawe hope that  people will come to the eight  and a half acres south of Duncan to spend a few pleasant  hours wandering around enjoying the stores and the displays.

"I kept thinking what a  shame it was to destroy all  those buildings. Then I got the  idea, why not put up an old  town street just like the ones  that used to be around here?  "Nobody on this part of the  Island has ever tried it. In the  interior they have Barkerville,  and I was thinking that Vancouver Island had settlers and  towns before Barkerville. So, 1  said, why not do something to  show what _t was like back  then?"  Boon after, he made his decision, he met Dawe. Their  ideas meshed almost completely. Since then, they've been  working at building andburnishing their town with artifacts from across Canada and  the Unted States.  They hope to keep adding on  to the street bit by bit as they  find now items to add to their  stores and shops. Right now,  they are working on getting a  carousel that could be set up  for the children who visit  Whipplet."ee Junction.  "This is just our way of trying to present a little history  in the area," says Dawe. "1  guess we juvt want to regress  a little in an age of progress."  '. '      y. .

He's known to  the police. Everytime there's  a break-in around town they  go and see him. They ask him  where lie was that night. They,  ask him about his friends.  His crimes are not big. Petty thefts. Car hubcaps. Small  items from stores. Sometimes  he throws rocks through windows. Just .for fun, as he told  the judge one day.  Billy's been to juvenile court  more than once. He was a bit  scared the first time but now  it's a bit of the tiirill. Just like  the break-ins.  It's almost as if he gets  some kind of satisfaction out of  appearing before the judge. It  forces somebody to notice him.  Ootta be careful the next time  though. The judge said he'd  send Billy to one of those institutions. A place' for juvenile  delinquents.  Bad news thinks Billy. But  then again he doesn't particularly 'get along with his par-,  ents. They-'re riot home much  but when they are they're always fighting and drinking  beer and telling Billy to get  lost. Maybe it would be good  to go to one of those places.  Why not? Meet some neat people and learn some neat things.  Yah, let's have some fun tonight.  Billy is a fictional character.  But his situation and his attitudes are not fictional. There  are Billys around everywhere  ^ ���. including the Sunshine  Coast. And that's one of the  reasons why the large house  in Wilson Creek is presently  being built. It's going to be a  group home for youthful offenders. For people like Billy.  For boys and girls, some perhaps who have less problems  than Billy, some who have  more.  Ian Fenning is 44 years old.  He knows people like Billy.  And he probably understands  them as much as anyone can-  He is not one of those people  who say lock them up and forget about them. He, like the  well-known French philosopher  Jean, Jacques Rousseau, believes that people are basically  good and that it's only particular circumstances of our society that turn them sour. He  believes that with a Uttle help,  a little understanding, a little  love.; most people can be put  back on the right track.  Ian Fenning has been ^ re-  centy hired by a Sunshine  Coast Resource Society committee to direct the new group  home in Wilson Creek. On completion the home will be, worth  about $6'5,000. That money  came as a capital expenditure  grant from the provincial Department of Human Resources.  Further funding will come in  the form of an annual $105,000  operating grant that will pay  wages, food and other necessities for the home, and the operation of a 12 passenger van  also purchased from the initial  By ROB DYKSTRA  capital grant.  The home, one of 14 such  homes in the province, will  utilize the guidance of five full  time and three part time people on a 24 hour basis. It will  accommodate a maximum of  eight juvenile offenders aged  6 to 17 years old who may live  there for a period ranging from  three to 12 months.  As Director Fenning explains  the goal of the group home, is  to have the children returned  to their own home as soon as  possible. Treatment is the key  word. The child will be kept in  the commoinity where he or she  belongs rather than being sent  to a large institution where  very often the problems are  compounded. Eight resources  workers will. in conjunction  iwith the director and probation  officers, attempt to find the  needs of the particular child  and the family from which he  or she^ comes.  "We can never beat the  child's own parents," Director  Fenning says. "We can be close  friends or have a brother and  sister-like relationship but we  'will never act as a surrogate  parent."  Director Fenning is familiar  with the psychology of adolescence. He has a long list of  academic qualifications in the  field and tops* that off with 20!  years of work with emotionally  disturbed kids and youthful offenders. He is married and has  six kids of his ofwn aged 9 to  22 years.  Director Fenning said a survey has been done in this area  which indicates that about 20  children require some sort of  treatment. Some have already  gone to other areas and1 some  are still hanging around.  "In many cases all a kid  needs is some tender loving  care,".he said.  The group home is scheduled  to open November 15.  %>  ^%m>  TM for the rest of your life  DIRECTOR IAN FENNING.  .THE GROUP home now under construction in Wilson Creek.

The school board had earlier  indicated that it was the vil  lage's responsibility to build  the access to the school but  councl has felt Otherwise.  The road access according to  located off Highway 101 beside  school board plans would be  St. Hilda's Church in Sechelt.  The village decision is based  "on the fact that ac_oi___i!g to  a village bylaw all subdividers  must provide access to their  properties  just as  they must  12   Coast News, Oct. 8, _J9<75.  provide seiwers.  Aldermen, after studying the  school plans, also disagreed  with the location of the road.  Aid. Norm Watson said it  would be too dangerous to allow school buses to pull off the  highway frm Barnacle Street.  The street is situated between  two curves in a 20 mph zonie.  Watson suggested the access  should come from the north  odjf Anchor Avenue.  Council's main concern is  that there was no money in the  present roads budget to build  the quarter mile road to the  edge of the school property.  Th village would also be responsible for salting and and  scraping the road after a snowfall.  The road to the property has  been gazetted.  School Board Secretary -  Treasurer Roy Mills suggested  the Department of Education  may contribute the funds necessary to build the access  road off Anchor and onto  school boaird property.  He said the proposed location of the school and access  roads makes the best land use.
