Array Pr o vincif al Li br ary #  Tinted and Published at Gibsons. B.C;  10c per copy  Volume 28.   Number 45, December 3. 1975.  Woman killed  Gibsons council agreed that.  fire protection was the number  one priority, however the firemen wijl probably not see. the  entire  amounts of their pro--:  posed budget. . Y  In; making a report to council Tuesday night. Aid. Jim  Metzler said the 1976 budget  for the West Howe Sound Fire  Department had increased sub  stantially over last year. He  said there was a $3,065 or 24.1  percent increase in the operating part of the budget and:  a $9,590 or 96 .percent increase  ��� ��������  land stand  Taking a  stand to  support:  the staff, the Sunshine Coast^  Regional Board has clarified its.  policy / regarding YAgwultt-ralr  land freeze appeals. Y        v      ?  At a meeting last Thursday,.  Director Peter Hoemberg moved that anyone wanting to have';  land taken out of the land  freeze should be immediately  informed of board policy and  that such policy does, not' originate with the planner.  Hoemberg said some people  felt   that   decisions   made  on  ALR land appeals were being  made   by   the   planner whenj.  they are in fact* policy of the?  board. He said it was up to thet  board to make the policies and  take the responsibilities.  Planner- Adrian Stott was recently -criticized-at-aT public  meeting after the regional discontinued on Page .7)  in the capital spending.  "I can't find anything wrong  with the budget and the fire  department certainly is one of  our more valuable assets but  the problem is financing;'' Aid.  Metzler told council. He said  last year's budget equalled 2.6  mills and this year's budget  would equal 4.9 mills. Noting,  that the village mill rate is fror  zen by provincial legislation at  29.4 mills he added: "Where we  are going "to find the money I  simply don't know.";  He then recommended that  all expenses in the budget set  aside for upgrading the present firehalls be eliminated because plans are already ui.4er-  way for a new combined fire-  hall to be completed sometime  that all expenses for new  next year. He also suggested  equipment be reconsidered in.  terms of a five year plan.  Metzler said equipment had  always been bought on a piecemeal basis and that more.long  range planning -*was necessary  to ensure adequate equipment.'  He further added that the capital expenditure section of the  budget would require a further  breakdown.  The fire department had also  asked for a $3,000 grant to operate! a fire club. Metzler said  the firemen.would like to con-,  tinue the services of the club  but they do not want to be a  fund raising organization. He  recommended to council that  an initial $1500 be granted and  that ;an; additional amount be  considered after a further  breakdown of expenses showing where ahd: how this grant  money would be spent.  Summing up his report,  Metzler said the capital expense part of the budget,'which  totalled $19,499, should be submitted back t0 the fire committee to be; considered as part  of a general five year plan that  would see the upgrading of all  new equipment. The operating  budget of $15,775 was recommended for approval.  The West Howe Sound Fire  Protection District includes  Gibsons and regional areas E  and F. The budget willbe discussed further by the, regional  board and the fire committee.  Minor quake shakes tip area  Many Sunshine Coast residents were awakened early  Sunday morning after two  earth tremors shook this area.  The tremors were felt from To  fino tb. areas in greater Vancouver and the Fraser Valley  but_they reportedly centred in  the Sechelt ^ area.---'   v-   - :  Sechelt RCMP reported no  major damage as a result of  NORTH FLETCHER road resident Bill Mueller demonstrates  the' right position for ridding  your driveway of all that white  stuff that fell on the Sunshine  Coast last weekend.   .  RCMIP   reported   numerous  cases of cars going off fhe road  and some minor accidents but  there were no major injuries  in the Gibsons area. It was  reported that about IB centimetres of snow fell in the area.  As one Gibsons resident said:  "Let's ignore it and maybe it  will go away."  Principal selected for Sechelt  liberal joins election race  , A prominent Powell River  woman, Mrs. Marion McRae,  has won the Liberal Party nom  ination in the Mackenzie" Riding, and will be thenarty standard bearer in the "December  111 provincial election. Mrs. McRae was chosen at the Liberal  Party nomination meeting held  November 24 in Powell River.  ��� Born and educated in Vancouver, McRae has lived on the  Sunshine Coast for 34 years.  ?Sie was first elected t0 the  3P*awell River School Board in.  1967 and built a solid reputation   for1 fairness,   reliability  MARION McRAE  and responsibility to her constituents. During the 1970- municipal elections, she ^polled  more votes than ^anyone in  Powell River, prior or since,  and served as School Board  chairman. In the fall of 1971,  she entered UBC as a mature  student and successfully completed two years' study.  iPrior to being a school trustee, Mrs. MdRae was active in  community organizations, helping to initiate the Youth Services Association in. 1966 and  serving several years as an active member.. She has belonged to the Status of Women  since the 1969 Royal Commission on the Status of Women.  Mrs. McRae is married, the  mother of three sons and a  daughter. She has two grandchildren.  In her first statement as the  Liberal candidate. Mrs. McRae  charged that swinging to the  Sjocial Credit to get rid of the  NDP is a "cop-out. Especially  after the people put the NDfl?  in to get rid of the Social Credit." Stating that the other  voters must share the dilemma  that decided her to seek the  Liberal nomination, Mrs. McRae added. "In all consciousness, I could not vote for either  of the two, parties who are in  direct confrontation with each  other. People who are liberal-  minded need the opportunity to  vote, and stand up and be  counted. A rational centre is  essential."  The Liberals have opened a  campaign headquarters ini Powell River at 4480 Marine.  By ROB DYKSTRA  Roland Haiwes has a new  job. Principal of the yet unbuilt Sechelt Junior Secondary school.  The selection, made from  what Superintendent John  Denley called eight first class  candidates, was announced  at a school board meeting  Thursday night. He will commence his duties February 1.  IThe principal designate of  the new Sechelt school, slated to accommodate students  by September of 1976, stopped by this newspaper's office Saturday afternoon. His  wife and children, aged five  and two, waited outside in  the car while he came in to  introduce himself. The family was on its way to Halfmoon Bay, heading for their  cabin where they have been  spending the summers for  about 15 years. The car was  attached to a/ small trailer  laden full of belongings.  They were already starting  the move from Maple Ridge  (where he was vice-principal  of Maple Ridge Secondary for  6%. years.  After we shook, hands we  talked for ten or so minutes  (I told him I wouldn't keep  ..him too long because his family was waiting) and I asked  him aibout his background  and his immediate plans for  this area. As he told me that  he had grown up in Victoria  and completed a BA in chemistry and physics, and an MA  in education administration  at UBC, I developed the impression that here's a man  /who likes life. He has a thick  moustache, a friendly face  and he seems like the type  of person who is everybody's  pal. Good for the students, I  thought.  He told me that he was  extremely excited about his  new job because it was go-  the minor earth quake.* |THe  constable on duty at the time  .aid some residents were awak  ened but there was ho apparent damage. The first earth  quake consisted of three tremors," the first and largest at  about 2:50 am. lasting a few  seconds. A" second smaller  tremor followed about four  minutes later and a third trems  or was. reported at approximately 7 a.m.  The tremors registered 4.5  on the Richter scale recorded  at the Dominion Astrophysical  Observatory near Victoria.  This is just below the level  which normally causes damage.  One resident in Hopkins  Landing said: "I heard the  dishes rattling in the cub-  boards and I thought the house  was going to come down.'  A short power outage occurred in the Sechelt, Davis  Bav arret Halfmoon Bay areas  as a result of the tremors.  in crash  An accident in Davis Bay  early Sunday morning claimed  the life of a Powell River woman. Dead is Lilian Evelyn  Trotter, 60, after the vehicle  she was driving collided with  another vehicle at the bottom  of the Davis Bay hill. The accident  occurred  about  8 am.  Injured in the accident was  Bonita Morris, -61, of Sechelt*  She was taken to St. Mary's  "Hospital with! a broken pelvis  and broken ribs. She was later  transferred to St. Paul's Hospital in Vancouver.  Police said the collision occurred in poor driving conditions. About ten centimetres  of snow had accumulated Sunday morning on the Sunshine  Coast.  enou  Regi6n-tl  Board  representa^  tive for Gibsons, Kurt Hoehne  had his way at a board meeting last Thursday but he was  not" entirely satisfied.  Hoehne had criticized tile  board at an earlier- meeting  because of the quick rubber-  stamping of spending reports.  He suggested the expenditures  be itemized so directors and  the p^bliccpidd see where the  lifcidney'was goiiigY  At Thursday's meeting, directors received the itemized  reports but director Hoehne  wasn't entirely satisfied because the report still listed.  cheques paid out to undesignated items. Furthermore,  Hoehne said he would like to  see to which function the monies were charged.  One of the reasons for des  ignating the functions, Hoehne  said later, is so the village of  Gibsons  can   determine   what"  they are paying for.  The village contributes financially for some regional  board functions but is not involved in others.  School board meeting briefs  ROLAND HAtVES  . .j. new principal  ing to be a great challenge.  He said one of the first  things he would do is set up  a storefront office in Sechelt  open three days a week so  people could come in and  look at the school plans and  talk about education. He  wants to know what the  residents of Sechelt want to  do with their school.  Secondly, he would like to  form a school senate made  up of students,, teachers and  parents. He wants the senate  t0 help him guide the direction of the school, and he  wants to determine that direction before the school  opens.  Asked what he would personally like to see in the  school he said: "I want to see  students succeed and I want  thiem to enjoy themselves."  Starting in February, the  new principal, who is 36  years old, will begin the task  delineating students and hiring teachers. The sohool will  have about 300 students.   ���  Anne Letham, grade three  teacher at Gibsons Elementary  school, has submitted her resignation to the board. The  board accepted the resignation  but trustees were "sorry to see  her leave." Her resignation  will be effective December 31  of this year.  * *        *       '  Superintendent John Denley  reported that 12 applications  have so far been received for  the position of learning assistance co-ordinator. Interviews  will take place in the near future in Vancouver. One of the  applications is from a local  person. Deadline for filling the  position   is   February   1.  * *        *  Superintendent   Denley   will  attend a conference for school  district superintendents at the  Harrison Hotel January 14 to  15: Theme of the conference is  the involvement of sub-groups  in the decision making process  * *        *  Dave Rempel, principal of  Gibsons Elementary School,  was given permission to. use  wine at an upcoming dinner.  The dinner is being staged by  the principal and staff of the  school for the maintenance  crew in recognition for the  work put in over the summer  holidays. '  The Society for Retarded  Children have asked the board  t^ take over their operation. A  total of nine children are involved in Gibsons and Madeira Park. The board indicated that the Department of Education would be in favor ot  accepting the funding but the  board would assume the immediate responsibility. A program for retarded children  aged five and up would be incorporated into the school system and consideration will also  be given to children of kinder  garten age. Meetings are being  held this week to discuss the  technicalities.  -A, ��JU ������_>  n* *|C ��**  Trustee Celia Fisher reported that an education committee "retreat" held recently was v  a success. She said the discussions were worthwhile and it  may have some effect on the  operation of the board next  year if everyone agrees with  the ideas.  The board approved October  accounts for $588,802.20 as presented by finance chairman  Jack MacLeod. It was noted  that this account was much bigger than usual. It was alsd revealed that the renovations in  the basement of Gibsons. Elementary school ran over the  budget by $1500. 2      Coast News, Dec. 3, 1975.

Phone 886-2622        PO Box 460, Gibsons, B.C  Dangling the carrot  All those election promises being made by the leaders of the two major parties are nothing but a bunch of  political pap.        ,  Think about it. Social Credit leader Bill Bennett has  been scurrying around this province leaving a trail of  promises that, if placed end to end, would reach all the  way from Revelstoke to Bella Coola. At last count Bennett had made some 40 promises that he bopes will touch  the hearts and votes of every type of person in the province.  In the other camp we have Dave Barrett doing much  the same to achieve the same end. Barrett has not made  quite as many promises as Bennett but the content of  some of his promises certainly makes up for the lack  in number.  Mr. Barrett's promise to provide government subsidized pensions for housewives is a good example. The  idea in itself may be quite laudible but these are hardly  the economic times to come out with something like that.  It's an all too blatant ploy to obtain more votes. There  are a lot of housewives' with probably uncommitted votes  in this province, and the scheme, furthermore accommodates quite nicely the housewife liberation bandwagon.  To all these "promises" we say, come off it and let's  be realistic. Barrett originally called this election because  he wanted a new mandate to take the tough decisions  that will put an end to inflation. It's all very well to  tantalize the electorate, with a silver platter of promises  but it must also be realized that such silver platters are  going to cost this province a lot of money. Money-that  we really can't afford unless, of course, the taxpayer is  willing to open up his wallet a little wider.  * Mr. Bennett has also indicated once or twice that if  his party is elected to form, the next government, there  will be no choice but to place a freeze on spending. Now  this seems a little incongruent with his other promises  to increase home acquisition grants, to remove the five  percent sales tax on building materials," to increase mincome payments, to pay the operating costs of independent  schools, to embark on a new program of highways and  highway maintenance, to clean up Okanagan Lake, the  list goes on and on% '.'������"' '  '..-.. There is no doubt that we would certainly like to  have all these new programs ��� and in many cases we  need them ��� but our leaders are going to lose a great  deal of credibility if they insist on out-promising each  other for the sake of gaining the electorate's attention  while all of us, incuding the leaders themselves, fully  realize that restraint and austerity of really the name of  the game.  Not in Santa's World  , .1  And while we are on the subject of austerity'and -  restraint, let's take a look and see what Santa Claus is  up to. Y  Already we are being deluged with Christmas ad-\  i vertising and if the advertisers have their way we will  be giving each other nothing less than  the world'for  Christmas.  There's one advertisement, for instance, that suggests the perfect Christmas present for Dad. It's a stereo  system and it's now selling for a low $599.99.  And we have another advertisement which asks us  why not please Mom on Christmas morning with a new  dishwasher. Only $479.50. Terms, of course.  For,the kiddies? Well you have your choice from  tape recorders, electric games of all sorts, ten-speed bicycles and rockets that really fly. The list here is endless. And so are the prices.  From somewhere out there, we keep hearing this  persistant and ominous echo that tells us we're experiencing hard  economic times.  Wherever those hard times are happening, it's cer-  tainy hot in Santa's world.  A nature lesson  I hope it will not be taken amiss if I remind you  that my country also was blessed with areas of great  beauty'and an abundance of natural resources. But in  our eagerness to tame and develop our portion of this  continent ��� or, more specifically, to.make our fast dol-,  lar while the getting was good ��� we have in many ways  been profligate in our misuse of these irreplaceable resources.  I hope your magnificent land of British Columbia,  by forward planning, comprehensive and adequate zoning and its rigid enforcement, can profit from some of  our mistakes.  ���Adolph Schmidt, United States Ambassador to Canada  ,;e V  asks  By JOHN HINI>-SMrra  A letter has recently been  sent to the Regional Board  Parks and Recreation request-  with a copy to the Minister of  ing that an area of the Sun-  Ishine Coast be designated as a  wilderness park for the use of  those'people who enjoy back-  . packing, hiking and camping  without the 'convenience' of-  roads.  The area involved includes  Panther Peak. Chapman Lake.  West Lake. Tetrahedron. Tan-  nis Lake Rainy Peak and all  land over an elevation of  3,000 feet in that general, vi-"  cinity.  It , would be nice to think  that one part at least of our  beautiful coast would be safe  from the logger and miner and  other forms of industrial development for posterity. In the  name: of so-called progress, the  Sunshine Coast is already being ravaged by numerous gravel pits wihich are springing up  everywhere. Unfortunately,  this is a natural resource whicj^  we have plenty oi and as time  goes on the scars from these  pits will grow at an ever.increasing rate. It is time that,  a piece of land for recreation  purposes be laid aside for the  enjoyment of this and future  generations. <  Access to the area concerned  is by trail only^and includes at  'least four different ways.  There are no doubt others, but  the four which come to mind  are via Rainy River, and the  cleft in ;the mountains tb the  right of Panther Peak, via McNair Creek, via the East road  of Jackson's Logging road and  via Chapman Creek.. The last  route is unfortunately closed /  to the public in general due  to the logging taking place in  the Chapman Creek water shed  but no doubt the day will come  when logging will come to ari  end and the trail, which was  paid for by means of public  funds through an OFY grant,  will. onCe more be accessible  to the public.  A similar situation exists in  the approach from MriNair  Creek. This trail was also established with the aid of an  OFY grant but has since been  partially obliterated by a log  ging road and has not been  maintained. The growth in that  valley is such that an annual  rehabilitation of the remaining  trail would be ' necessary to  make it usable by the public in  general. The road however is  not closed as in the case of  Chapman Creek.  The east road oi Jackson's  -Logging makes an interesjtmg  approach and brings one to the  edge of the. deep and sheer  valley formed by McNair  Creek which one can then follow up to the lake. Still another approach to the proposed  ' park would be again frorn,  Rairiy .River. This time however you would drive to the  end of the road, about-12 miles,  up to the dam on Rainy Lake.  Park the qar arid then proceed  around the lake, to the far end  and climb the ridge. From the  top one gets a really spectacular view of the north side of  Tetrahedron Peak. This is a  sheer wall of perhaps 1000 feet  down to the vailey below. The  route along the ridge to the  shoulder below the peak and  the climb to the top. presents  no problems.  The area concerned is mostly over the 3,000 foot level, and.  as such is semi alpine and alpine in nature. The snow remains well into early suwiirier  and/would be an ideal location  for cross-country skiing, winter  camping and any type of outward bound course which may  at some time be undertaken  by the more progressive types  at the school and young adults -  level.

Depression  impresses  A grade eleven -social studies  class at Elphinstone High was  'given a- first hand impression  of what happened during the  depression years by 1.5* local  senior citizens 'who survived  that period.  The class has recently been  studying the depression and  students invited the seniors to  their class recently to gain  first hand knowledge of those  lean years during the  1930's.  Student Lynn Husband said ;  the students interviewed at;  least two or three of the sen- \  ior citizens and received a  wide impression of the depres- r  sion days. She' said learning;  first hand from the senior citizens was much more interesting than reading about it in  a book.  After about an hour of interviewing the senior citizens  had a coffeee break and were  shown around the school by  teacher Jack Pope.  The students express their  gratitude to the senior citi  zens for giving their time.  15 YEARS AGO  Roy Brett,.

PROMISES, PROMISES, PROMISES  there is a wide variety of eco-'  logical areas ranging from the  lake side,, to a bog containing  a multitude of wild flowers,  the high semi-alpine lakes and  on to the treeless, rocky, alpine country (which itself is  home for a wide variety of  flowers, mosses and grasses  found only at these altitudes.  As yet not too many people get  into these parts but it is conceivable that one of these days  precautions will have to be taken to protect the delicate environment by means of trails,  as is done in Garibaldi Park.  But as yet people are able to  wander at will arid long may it  remain like that.  It is riot known yet what  the policy of the Regional  Board will be as it applies to  the Chapman Creek watershed  and its accessability to the pub  lie. I seem to recall that controlled recreational use by the  public was suggested in the  comprehensive study which  was done a few years ago. The  likelihood of a dam being built  at the creek end of the lake,  in order to raise the level of  the lake is very real, but it is  hoped that this will be accomplished without having to build  a road.

Every  school in the district from Bowen Island to Egmont is equipped with 20-inch color television sets and video-cartridge  players on which a wide variety of educational programs  are pre-recorded. For example,  one cartridge received from  the. provincial Educational Media Centre contains two televised films: Animal Adaptation in a Northern Environ  ment, and Adaptation to Ocean  Environments. The television  sets are, just like any good  quality domestic models, and  they can be used in the same  way to receive television programs either off-air or via cable where cable facilities are  available. .

The Provincial YEducational  Media Centre is the Department of Education's audiovisual branch located in North  Burnaby. In addition to maintaining a collection of films  the centre houses a television  studio and associated facilities  where educational television  programs such as the Student  Forum are produced. There is  slso a dubbing centre, where  films for which the Provincial  Educational Media Centre  (PEMC) has negotiated video  rights, are made into television  programs. These pi >grams are  then available to schools  throughout the province.  Through this function, PEMC  is able to supply programs in  pre-recorded television format  tor only $15. Many of these  programs would otherwise cost  over $450 as 16mm films.  The dubbing of films onto  videotapes is an ongoing pro  cess, and PEMC's present inventory consists of 662 titles on  510 videotapes.

PEMC has  recently negotiated a videotap  ing cont-act with the prestigious National Geographic Society, and a number of excellent educational programs will  thus become available to school  districts in British Columbia  which are equipped with the  facilities for playing videotapes.  This school district's initial  order to PEMC is for 233 videotapes selected by the district's teachers from the PEMC  catalogue last June. More than  half of the order has now been  received.  The school  district also has  facilities for videotaping television programs off-air. A number   of   programs   for   which  video rights have been cleared  have   been   recorded'   in   this  manner in response to requests  from teachers. These facilities  can also be used for editing in  cronjunction with the district's  production   facilities.   At   this  time,   the  facilities  are  quite  rudimentary but they, are certainly adequate for taping various student activities such as  field   tr^ps,   drama,   language  arts, games and physical education.  The  production  facilities are black and white because of the prohibitive cost  of color cameras and the additional technical problems asso  ciated with the" use of color  production equipment as compared to black and white. As  the use of these facilities develops,   selected  examples   of  Btudent   productions   will   be  televised occasionally over the  local cable channel.  TTie teachers' response to the  new equipment has been enthusiastic, and it is being widely used already. The continuing development of the district's videotape program, under the direction of Co-ordina  tor of Educational Resources,  Allan Crane, should make the  1975-76 school year an exciting  one for both students and teachers.  Home therapy  report  The November report for  domiciliary physiot h e r a <p y  shows that 26 home visits were  made in the first month of operation.  The home visiting service  for physical and occupational  therapy started November 10.  It takes in the area from Port  Mellon to Egmont.  Mary Walton, co-ordinator  for the service, said most of  the visits were made in the  area between Hopkins Landing  and Roberts Creek. Two visits  were made in Maderia Park.  Total mileage travelled was  318.1 miles.  The treatments have included the use of hot packs, wax,  home adaptations, and community integration plans.  The co-ordinator thanks Mr.  Webb and the industral arts  students at Elphinstone high  school who have supplied the  organization with adaptations  at cost price. This represents a  considerable saving to those  requiring the aids.

Don Lockstead - NDP  ri   _  I intend to fight for the people  of this arear  Don Lockstead i*> the present  NDP MLA representing the  Mackenzie constituency. He  was first elected to the legislature in 1S72 and has worked  for nearly four years as a back  berteher to the present government.  Lockstead is 44 years old He  was born in Leduc, Alberta,  but has spent most of his life  on Texada Island. He presently lives in Vananda. Texada  Island, with his wife Leita  Jean, a son, Donald, and daughters Sylvia, Gina and Jennifer.  Before being elected to the legislature Lockstead was involved in mining ahd logging  both in labor and management  positions.  He is a member of the Elks  club, the Lions Club, and the  Credit Union and his hobbies  include scuba diving, baseball,  fishing and reading.  Lockstead took time out last  week from his busy campaign  schedule for an interview with  Rob Dykstra. Here is part of  that interview.  ' Coast _ News:  How   is  your  campaign going?  Lockstead: I've knocked on  some 3,000 doors now since my  nomination two weeks ago. I  feel that the New Democratic  Party has between 38 and 40  percent of the voters committed to voting for us. In other  words we are holding our vote.  The figure that upsets me is  that there are 25 percent uncommitted voters. In order for  me to carry this particular Riding I must get at least half ,oi  that uncommitted vote and that  is the reason I am working 16  hours a day and knockkig on  doors. I exoeot before the end  of the campaign to have knocked on 4.000 more doors. In fact  my campaign manager has told  me that if I don't personally  get to those 4.000 doors he will  personally kick mo.  Do you tliink now with a  Liberal candidate in the riding  it will split the free enterprise  vote?  No. The Liberal vote in the  last provincial election has  been negligible. I expect they  will not receive any larger proportion of the vote in this provincial election than they have  iri the past. In this riding, in  my view, it vis a straight two  way fight. Private enterprise  versus the peoble.  . ..What are the issues here?  . I had a meeting with the  Premier in Powell River and  looked at several of the accomplishments of the party and I  wouldn't be a good politician  if I didn't tell people what my  policies were and what I in  tend to fight for. I'm not going  to go into a whole lot of detail  because I don't have all day.  We could spend a whole day  on this interview alone, on  party policy, on the accom-  plishiments of the party, on the  accomplishments in the constituency and our future plans.  .I'll try and keep to highlights if I may.  Getting to the local scene,  what's in store for the future  of the Sunshine Coast?  I've asked every regional  board, every municipality, and  every ratepayers association in  this riding to assist .me to come ���  upswith.a rational plan of development because we don't  want this area to become another bedroom community for  Vancouver. Eighty-five to 90  percent of the mail I receive  from people in this area want  to improve ferry services but  they don't want more people.  You can't have it both ways.  Is there any way to resolve  that paradox?  I'm suggesting that a rational  plan be drawn up in consultation with everyone in the community who is the least bit interested, to work through their  municipalities and the regional  board so that we come up with  a rational plan and we stick to%  that plan. I'll tell you that if  they dn pome up with rational  plans they have a government  now that will listen and I will  certainly fight for these people  in Victoria to retain a lifestyle  which I believe is superior to  anything they have at the moment in downtown Vancouver  or North Vancouver.  Land, especially on the Sunshine Coast, is unreasonable in  price. Is there a chance the  government would release  crown land, making it available  to those who presently can't  afford to buy land?  I've said this before. I've  pledged, if re-elected, tQ fight  to make more crown land available for people. And once  again I've asked every regional,  district in this constituency  plus three municipalities, plus  42 registered water districts  and a number of unregistered  water districts - all with financial problems by the way ��� to  come up with ideas and areas  to make crown land, available  for people who need it. I don't  want this crown land going to  people who already have lands  and homes because there are a  great number of people who  can't afford to pay the rip-off  prices now being asked by the  real estate people. And I guarantee you. whether I get the  co-operation of the local governments or not, I intend to  proceed to make crown land  available to people wh0 can't  afford these rip-off prices.  Would this crown land be  .eased or bought?  I personally favor the long  term lease, the sixty year lease  with the option to renew in  forty years. However^ I am not  opposed to the "lease-to-purchase plan where someone can  lease a piece of property, either a residential lot or a small  holding of five to twenty acres,  for a three year lease, build a  habitable dwelling and at the  end of the three years, if they  have met the criteria as laid  down, purchase that property.  iwfERviEWis wrrar  LOCAL CANDIDATES  FOR THE  DECEMBER 11  PROVINCIAL ELECTION  Eric Paetkau - Social Credit  'We are the catalysts to harmonize our two  major resources - human and natural'  DON LOCKSTEAD  What are the criteria?  A home, water supply, proper sewage, and access.  What about the zoning laws  and other regulations of local  governments that may inhibit  such development of property?  There are lots of problems to  be overcome but I want to tell  you that legislation that governments have passed, can be  rescinded. And. that's what we .  are elected for. I intend to  fight for the people in this area  and if the legislation is bad  then I will expect to have that  legislation changed to meet the  criteria and the needs of the  people involved.  You earlier said you would  fight for legislation- to assist  pensioners. How would yon assist them? ~  I have pledged that I will  fight for the senior citizens. I  have already discussed this  with  the  former  minister  of  '- finance and the premier of the  province that I want the sales  tax removed on certain items  that are a'must'for our seniors.  I will fight in the first session  of the legislature to have the  tax removed on this long list  of items that are a complete  necessity t0 our senior citizens.  Secondly, I have pledged to  fight for increases in the superannuation. As you know there  are three acts called the superannuation acts which are administered under the office of  r the provincial secretary. These  are our public servants and our  teachers who,are now retired.  In many cases I have found  that the cost of living has risen  above their increases in their  pensions although, as a government, we have three years in a  row increased the pensions to  these.people. What I'm asking  for, and what I will put in a  ; private member's bill if necessary, is a COLA clause iri each  one of these super-annuation,  acts so that these retired teachers, retired public servants, retired workers from crown corporations can have a decent  living. I'm going to fight for  this COLA clause and when I  say fight I don't mean just get  up in the legislature and make  a speech and sit1 down and say  I fought for it. I intend to fight  in caucus, in the cabinet, the  provincial secretary,' and the  province for this item.  Obviously you agree with  the concept of the agricultural  land freeze. There are some  problems with the land freeze  in this area in that some land  doesn't belong in the freeze.  Do you have any solutions to  this problem? Y?  Right. Under the Agricultural Land Reserve.Act you recall  that the opposition called us  fascists and .communists and  there was this whole big uproar. But I want to tell you  that'99.9 percent of the people  of this province now agree  with the agricultural land reserve act.  There were some mistakes  made ��� not necessarily mistakes ��� but some regional .  areas and municipalities were  very lackadaisical in how some  areas were designated. Consequently there were some areas  that should have been in the  reserve left out and there were  other areas placed in the reserve that should: not have  been put in. But the. act allows  for appeals. And I've been very  successful in working with re- \  gional boards and municipal!  ties in having these situations  improved and having these  mistakes corrected. And furthermore if a few people, without mentioning names, would  get off their butts, these errors  would be corrected much faster. ' ;���  You said earlier that water  districts are having financial  problems. What's in store for  them?  I have proposed, along with  several of my colleagues in the  backbench and in the legislature, that we should pass legislation similar to the sewerage  disposal act where the provincial government picks up part  ofv the deficit. Everything over  three mills we would pick up  75 percent of the'deficit. And v  while the premier while he was  minister of finance did offer  help to the water districts via  the resources sharing"~, aetY IY  find that it is not/bringingf^ri ���  as much as we would have lik-Y  ed. I am going to present tliis'  plan of mine. If it is not accepted by the government I will  introduce a private member's  bill and I will fight vigorously  to help our water districts.  Due to lack of space the second part of this interview will  he printed in next week's edition of the Coast News.  Dr. Eric Paetkau is Social  Credit candidate for Mackenzie riding. He is 42 years old  and presently /works as a surgeon at St. Mary's Hospital  and manager of the Seohelt  Medical Clinic.  Paetkau was born in Saskatchewan and has lived on the  Sunshine Coast for 16 years;  He is married to Bonnie Paet  kau and they have five children between the ages of three  and 15. His hobbies arie fishing,  classical music, arid reading.  Paetkau said he first became  interested in politics when The  went to the legislature in Victoria and came away with the  impression that he could d'6 a  much better job; He espouses  -a government that stresses res  traint and responsibility.  There has been some concern  that, this area would lose its  surgeon if Dr. Paetkau was elected to the legislature iri. Victoria. But assurances have been  made that the area would have  another, surgeon, because, according to Paetkau himself,  this area definitely does need  a surgeon.  Dr. Paetkau was interviewed  in Sechelt last week between  hops to Powell River and other  communities in this constituency. The interview was con- "  ducted by Rob Dykstra.  Coast News: What is your  opinion on the Agricultural  Land Freeze? It's been stated  that Bennett may do away  with the land freeze, If elected.  Paetkau: Agricultural land *  must definitely be retained for  farming. Land that is-not .suitable for agriculture should be  taken out - of . the. freeze and  made usable for homesites.  Whai issue in this election  concerns you' most?  I think one of the major issues is that the government  wants to control all lands and  consequently all people iri the  province. They disagree with  private ownership which in my  opinion is contrary to one ol  the basic innate desires of the  human being. It involves the  whole idea of territory ������'  man's desire to have his own  piece of land. The present  minister of agriculture, Dave.  Stupich, has earlier indicated  that all taxes will be manipulated towards that end of  abolishing private land. You  take away that and you take  away our sense of liberty.  Another one of the basic issues is the government's mismanagement. The province has  had to go to the Arabs for a  loan because they were desper  ate for quick money. That loan  will have to be paid off by  your children and my children.  Getting hack to the land  question, how would the Socreds encourage private ownership of land?  A Socred government would  make available serviced crown  lots at cost. And I personally  feel that we should make five  or ten acre parcels available  for homesteadmg . and small  farms. In fact, it is party poli  cy that crown land will be  sold, to Canadians for home-  steading.  How do you feel about for*  eign ownership of land?  I think non-Canadians should -  be allowed to own homesites in  B.C. If we send non-Canadians  packing, human nature will  have it that the Americans will  send Canadians packing out oi  Point Roberts. As these people  meet at the borders there will  be misunderstandings, distur-"  bances and eventually club-  swingings. Think how good the  world would be if the Arabs  and the Israelis were allowed  to own homesites in each  other's lands. I must say that 1  have a more global philosophy  rather than a local philosophy.  I feel we should relate to all  people.  Would you place any limits  on foreign ownership of land?  I don't agree with foreign  ownership of large holdings. I  would agree on imposing certain limitations and guidelines.  What about foreign ownership of industry?  We need to .encourage out oi  province investments. We certainly can't do it all ourselves.  Here again, I believe in guidelines. I think we should retain  basic control. For example, we  are in control of 64% of the  mining industry.  JERIC  PAETKAU  You have indicated you believe in isocial [justice. Doesn'i  that ialign you with the NDP  philosophy ?v  Social justice and reform con  tinues and expands as society  develops and as governments  change office. Compassion and  social improvement is certainly not the monopoly of any one  government. For example, the  senior citizens supplement now  called Mincome began in 1942  under a coalition government.  Each succeeding government  has made improvements on the  program.  Bill Bennett has been making  a lot of promises, and you have  ��� indicated a Socred government  would practice restraint. Where  is the money going to come  from to fulfill ithe promises?  OK. This is a two fold approach. Number one, I agree  that all taxes are going to be  frozen. Socreds will, and I  agree'with this, freeze the present structure and therefore  yoii have to live within our  means. The way to improve the  means ��� and obviously we  have to improve the means if  we-want to find money for the  things we need ���- basically is  to restore the resource indus  try. Do you know this year we  obtained more revenue from  alcohol sales than from stump-  age? And the mining of course  has taken an awful drop. This  has to be stimulated. It's estimated there are up to 40 to 50  thousand out of work because  of the slump in the mining industry. If you can get these  people back to work you'll not  only solve a significant part of  the unemployment problem but  you'jl also generate new money/This is how you have to do  it. You can't continue to raise  taxes because there's only so  much money. You have to find  some new money.  "We basically have three different types of resource. We  have the comnletely renewable  resource which is the forest  industry. Trees can be planted  .and we can re-use them. That's  like farming. Number two, we  have the mineral resource  which whether it has been  mined or not it remains in ex-  istance. You don't destroy, copper. If you feel it's better left  in the ground then OK. But if  it's usable and by being usable  it can generate this income for  the province why not have it.-  It's there and it can be recycled. You don't destroy a mineral  because it's been taken out o'  the ground. Number three, we  have the non-renewable resources which is our oil and  gas and coal and these you  burn up and they're gone forr  ever. So each one of these has  to be dealt with in a separate  way. They have^o be managed  differently.  Is this not what the NDP is  doing?  Yes that's right, that's here  and I don't think I have any  quarrel with that.  What about Bill 33. the Mineral Royalties Act? Would that  be withdrawn immediately (and  if so what would take its place?  That's right. It would be replaced by a tax on the profits  like it is in other provinces.  Ontario and Quebec have pretty stiff mining laws but they  basically tax the profit and  they don't tax the ore. This is  Why in BJC. the mines have  closed, no new ones have been  set into motion, exploration is  down practically to zero and  there's been nothing new in  the past three years. If it takes  roughly eight years to get a  mine going from, the time it's  been discovered, we've lost a  significant number of years. If  the average life of a mine is  13. to 15 years we've lost  ground and we haven't been  able to keep a new riiine pro:  dusctivity" going. These aren't  political figures. I've done a  lot of reading. These are  straight economic figures.  What about the idea of companies playing: around with  their profits so that the government isn't reaping quite as  much in taxes ias they should  be?  Well the audits would show  that. Mining companies were  making less than 9% profit  during the five year period  prior to 1973.. This is lower  (than the texltile and riiariufac?  turimg industry which were  closer to ten.  Do you think merely taxing  , a nine percent prof it will bring:  in enough revenue to help support the sbcial programs?  Sure. What happens is that  first of all you stimulate an  awful lot of employment. You  stimulate a tremendous amount  of work and productivity and  people earning salaries and  buying products that people  make. It's an enormous sort of  a spin-off effect. You tax profits as high as the industry can  stand. That's fair enough. But  to tax them before they get it  out of the ground, in effect,  that's exactly as if you were  building a house. You service  the lot, you prepare it completely, and then went back for  permission to build the house  and you; may not get it. That's  exactly the analogy that's happening in our mining industry.  Sb this is how you can then  keep our financial picture solvent. You can't just get it out  of taxing people over and over  again. All you have to do is  look at your tax bill over the  last couple of years. Enormous!  And this is the only way the  NDP plan on getting more.  Do you have any interests  in getting into $he cabinet?  Oh no. My statement hay  been that I'm prepared to do  what is expected of| me and) I'l1  do a good Job. I would like  very much, to contribute on a  significant level but more than  that, no. I think.I could contribute as a backbencher in  the w government because I  would get involved in all Mrids  of committee work. But I think  it would be very tough fo be a  backbencher in the opposition.  Due to lack of space-the Second part of this interview will  be printed in next week's edition of the Coast News.

OVER-WHELMING GOVERNMENTAL  CONTROLS:  ���   ���������.-.���-. \  The N.D.P. philosophy is to gain control of all  land, and thereby the people.  They do not want private ownership of land and  have stated Ihaf, if necessary, they will manipulate  taxes to achieve their goal,  As part of government, I will work for individual  liberties, including the right to own land.  Eric Paetkau  SOCIAL CREDIT  Authorized by Mackenzie Social Credit  Campaign Committee  Eidtor: The following is my  considered reaction ������'to-, the editorial report . as published in  the Coast News Nov. 19 (page  2.) .  I cannot remember a more  erroneous and ilLcqnceived  piece of reporting in a long  time. If the intent was to influence feelings and exacer  bate the long and senseless existing vendetta between public-  bodies, it is resoundingly .successful. ,  The last line, and I quote,  from said article,' "Don't believe everything you read"  really encapsulates the detailed list of errors that I was first  tempted to refute.  For the enlightenment of J. .  Copland and council, I offer  Section 29 (2) of the Municipal Act. For the edification of  the reporter, I suggest that he  report facts instead of "something or other.'?  None of this tempest in a  teapot would have occurred if  the council of Sechelt had been  kept informed as was their due  as administrators of a 50%  share in the airport. The correction of other errors will  accomplish little or nothing in  the way of amity and so I'  leave that trivia to the Coast  News to deal with it as it sees  fit.  I trust and hope that the  new councils will leave this  kind of warfare well behind  them and get on with the job  Ah a spirit of honest appraisal  and co-operation. Nothing less  will do.  ���ALD..N. F. WATSON  Village of Sechelt.  Some issues  Editor: Vancouver newspapers tend to wash over the  facts but I have recently clipped out some issues of interest  to all voters in Mackenzie Rid-  .���ing.   .  According to an article in  the Vancouver Sun of November 6, Tl see that the Ontario  auto insurance companies had  an operating loss of $144 million in the past year and that  insurance rates are expected to  rise about 25 percent next time  around. So ICBC sounds pretty good after all when compared to the Toronto sharpies.  If elected, both the Socreds  and Liberals are hell-bent on  selling our provincially owned  companies. Just like the Colum  bia River, they would sell out  the pulp mill at Prince Rupert  for a fast buck..They would  sell this along with a half billion dollars of standing timber  and then where would the people of 'BJC. be? Sitting on the  sidelined watching tbe big corporations rip off the natural  resources of the province. The  people own Canadian Cellulose,  so wby sell it?  Ocean Falls would not be sold  because it makes as much money as the Prince Rupert mill.  But everything else would be  sold out, especially to Americans. The B.C. land is NDP all  over and I will vote Lockstead  all over again. The NDP deserve another term.  ���JAJMES WARNOCK  Madeira Park.  Futile move  The following! is a copy of a  recent letter sent to the Sechelt  Chamber of Commerce:  .We note by the press your  Chamber is proposing that the  government build you a breakwater on the beach, in front of"  Sechelt. Surely this idea is an  exercise in futility when one  considers the money spent on  the breakwater at Selma Park  which is used very little, considering its cost., The Selma  Park breakwater was a prime  Coast News, Dec. 3, 1975.     7  project of the Sechelt Cham-,  ber of Commerce. "Wlhy not  move this to the new location  at no cost to the taxpayers of  the country who footed the bal1  for the last one? ���  We also note that you are  proposing to apply for a further grant for a recreation facility in Sechelt. As this is.  something that will also have  to be supported by the taxpayers in the final analysis, we  suggest a referendum by the  public, before you make this  decision to spend more public  funds.  ^ROBERTS CREEK  COMMUNITY ASSOC.

(March &1 So April 20  Business activities will undoubt  edly take up much of your  time duvring the next week.  There may be a good chance of  business 'expansion' coming up  soon. You should look into this  carefully.  TAURUS w April 21 to May 21  This is a good time to "start  something new" as there are  many aspects in the zodiac  right now that point to success for the sign of Taurus.  Play it cool and cautiously.  GEMINI i- May 22 to June 21  You are now undergoing quite  a "change for the better" in  your life pattern. Many new  opportunities should be opening up for you now. Be careful that you don't "rush too  fast". ,  CANCER ir June 22 to July 22  Much "action" is indicated for  the sign of Cancer for the next  week. This is true in everything except in the realm of  real estate. You'd be wiser to  leave such matters alone for  the present.  LEO - July 23 to. August 23  If you find that some situation  has got you "edgy" or "all up  in the air" take it easy and try  not to lose your temper. This  should clear up by the end of  -   the next week.  VIRGO - August 24 to Sept. 22  There could be a slight "snarl-  up" in communications this  next week that will leave you  pretty confused. Don't worry  too much, about this, as it will  all clear itself up very quickly.  LIBRA - Sept. 23 jto October 23  Here is an opportunity for all  Libra persons to advance in  some special business undertaking. There is a warning  however not to become arrogant. Don't hesitate to take advice.  SCORPIO r Oct, 24 to Nov. 22  For this next week, there are  absolutely no poor aspects to  the sign of Scorpio in the zodiac. This should enable you  to make great headway in what  ever line of work you are1 following.  SAGITTARIUS Nov. 23- Dec 21  The signs iiidicate that you will  be in a rather "touchy" position in the next week or two.  Don't let this deter you from  any worthy project, but be  careful in foolish speculation)! .  CAPRICORN - Dec. 22 Jan.20  This next week br so is not exactly the best time in the world  to get involved in any large  business transactions. Yo(u  would be wise to put off important businesss matters for  a week or so.  AQUARIUS - Jan 21 to Feb. 18  A good astrologer doesn't attempt to 'frighten' people with  dire predictions, but when you  see a danger signal coming up  it's only fair to warn people.  Be careful in traffic and around  water especially.  PISCES - Feb. 19 to March 20  .A nice set of very beneficial  .aspects surrounds the sign of  Pisces at this time. This should .  help business and social activities greatly. However don't  make any foolish gambles!  (Copyright 1975 by Trent  Varro.   All   rights   reserved).

Local officials and the association are  holdihg a 'reception; Wednesday,  Decemiber 3 to inaugurate the  building.  Located up Chapman Creek,  just off Highway 101, the  building is a result of the efforts of a concerned committee of Sunshine Coast residents  striving to upgrade the social  services m this area. The home  is a placement centre for children between the ages of six  to 17 years with emotional and  behavioral problems. Up to  now this service was not avail  able on   the   Sunshine   Coast  and there was a waiting list for  the  placement  of children iri  other centres.  Wilson Greek Community As  sociation president Tim Frizzell, explained that the home  belongs to the community. He  recently thanked MLA. Don  Lockstead for "the marvelous  job he did for us." Frizzell said  Lockstead played a low key  position but was always there  tp help with government relations. The group home is funded by the provincial Department of Human Resources.

BRAY  The garage sale recently  held in the almost completed  O.AJP.O recreation hall, situated between Burns and Cochrane near Franklin turned out  to be a most gratifying success  A large variety of useful articles donated in the main by  generous well washers, were  offered v for sale by willing  O.A.P.O workers, and, it is to  these same and the ready response of an interested public  that the exercise was brought  to such a satisfactory conclusion. The proceeds of the sale  will of course be added to the  already appreciable amount required to complete the building. It is hoped to have the  hall ready for use during the  spring of 1976.  In the past years, around  Christmas time, it has been  the'custom of the various benevolent groups in Gibsons, the  Lions Club, the Kinsmen, and  the Legion ladies who deserve  special mention, to entertain,  the old age pensioners with a  banquet, served in the spacious Legion hall. This year on  the evening of November 28th.  the Lions Club hosted some  180 Senior Citizens at a dinner  which could be aptly described in one word as scrumptious.  Liquid appetizers were readily  available, and. we note in this  respect that the bar was well  patronized.  After the meal had been disposed of and the dishes cleared away, a variety of entertainment was offered. A three-  legged individual confounded  the audience with his clever  antics, and later a bevy of  male beauty raised howls of  laughter as they made a burlesque of the can-can dance in  tan assortment of flimsy female  attire.  "Hie highligjht of the evening, however was the presentation of a cheque for $180 to the  lions by the O.AJP.O President  Jim Holt. Mr. De Vries accepted the cheque, eying it minutely front and back,then with  lan impish grin on his face  promptly handed it back to the  giver wth the remark that not  only was it his pleasure and  that of his colleagues to re-  . turn the cheque, but in addition he was empowered to add  a-cheque of behalf of the lions  for" a similar amount, making  $360 in all, the same to be ad  dted to the building fund for  the completion of the recrea  In Library  ADULT  Fiction:  Humboldt's Gift by Saul Bellow.

What greater  love can we express to them,  but to regard them as He did,  to give them freely of the messages He left, and to ���show  them how readily their problems, whatever they are, can  be solved.  Many times our children, in  turn, help to solve their parents' problems. When a little  child says "God is Love", he.  with his ready acceptance of a  great truth, is able to convey  his own faith and confidence  to a grown-uD because of his  absolute trust in God.  Jesus said "Suffer the little  children to come unto me, and  forbid them not: for of such is  the Kingdom of God."

The Gibsons Old Age Pensioners Association received  their final grant o_ $9,800 last  week which completes the provincial government's share of  building expenses for the sen-  iors new community hall. -The  cheque was presented by MOLA  Don Lockstead to Jim Holt and  Vic Eckstein, two of the six  seniors who have worked full  time on the building.  The seniors have indicated  that their aim with the new  building is to involve various  groups of all ages. The Yfiirst  function held in the new hah  located between Burns and  Cochrane Roads was a highly  successful garage sale November 15. Over $600 was. raised  from that sale and large donations of household goods were  received from the hospital auxiliary.  Vic Eckstein, on behalf of the  entire community of Gibsons  thanked Fred Mason, Ed Connor, Len Cbates, Julio Soren  son and Jim Holt for their participation in the'construction of  the building. He praised Gibsons village council for their  support and thanked local  building suppliers for materials.  MELA Don Lockstead also received thanks for his work in  helping to obtain the grant approval which totalled $17,500."  It was noted that there are no  outstanding debts as a result  of the provincial government  support.  Work on the hall has been  suspended until better weather  conditions, giving the active  pensioners, who range between  69 and 79 years,, a slight bu":  well-earned rest.  Jim Ho.lt Said an official  name for the new hall will be  chosen at a later date.
