Array w  aawam  LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY I  I   PARLIAMENT BUaDlNOS I  U((rt)��IA, WUTISH COLUMBIA       1  aV -m, ..jX'  w  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15* per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  November/. 1978  Volume 31, Number 45  For Gibsons Council  Candidates  Keith Evans  ^ Lest  we  forget I  Bv John Burnside  A newcomer on the political  scene this year is Keith  Evans who is running for an  aldcrmanic scat on the Gibsons village council. Keith  was born in Stockport, a suburb of Manchester and came  to the west coast in 1956  at the age of seven, living at  Crescent Beach until he  moved to the Sunshine Coasl  two years ago.  Keith is a log inspector with  Canadian Forest Products at  Port Mellon. He is university  trained, having attended  the University of Windsor  and Queen's University in  Kingston. Hc is married with  two children.  Since arriving on the Sunshine Coast, Keith has not  been inactive in community  affairs.    Hc   organized   the  tennis tournament for the  past two Sea Cavalcades and  played on both the Elphinstone Wanderers and the  Raiders. He is also becoming  involved with the local drama  club, the Driftwood Players.  Needless lo say. one of  Keith's interests in seeking  an aldcrmanic position is  recreation. "A Recreation  Commission should bc formed  to co-ordinate the recreation  facilities we now have and to  plan for future development.  Of primary importance is an  established plan for Brothers  Park. Very little has been  done aboul this in thc past  twoyears."  Another area of great importance, in the opinion of thc  candidate, is thc need to  rejuvenate thc lower village  as thc core of thc community.  In this area Keith sees the  need for a marina but stresses  that it should be primarily  for local residents. "There  should be overnight moorage  but we should not become a  parking lot for Vancouver.  They'll come over here with  their groceries and everything  else and do very little for the  economy of our community,"  said Evans.  Evans also stressed the  need for greater communication between the elected  officials and ihe taxpayers.  "It's up to thc individual  aldermen to communicate  with the populace." hc said.  the whitewashed wall of. yes I believe it was a hospital anil  _   Jftes momentarily excusing himself and going round the corner  Lest we forget.

Larry Macdonald  Dick Fitchett  Long-time Gibsons resident, Dick Fitchett. has  filed papers and entered the  race for thc two aldcrmanic  scats which fall vacant on  the village council this month.  Dick Fitchett was born in  Saskatchewan but moved to  the Coast and took up residence on Gower Point in 1922.  He went to school in Gibsons  for four years before thc  family moved to Vancouver.  After the Second World  War Dick mvocd back to  Gibsons and opened up thc  Gibsons Building Supply  business from which hc  retired three years ago.  Ted Hume  One of the incumbents  seeking re-election in the  Gibsons municipal election is  Alderman Ted Hume. Ted is  forty-three years old and was  born in Vancouver. He moved  to Port Mellon in 1945 and has  been a resident of thc Sunshine Coast ever since. He is  married with three children  and is self-employed in the  field of heating sales and  service.  Alderman Hume says that  as far as hc can see nothing  controversial is looming ahead  of the Gibsons council, with  the possible exception of thc  marina proposal, studies for  which   are   underway,   "As  Looking oul over Gibsons  Harbour from his home on  the Bluff, Dick contemplates  thc future of the village.  "We must have progress,"  hc says, "but it must bc  orderly and sensible progress.  This is my hometown and I'd  like to bc involved in ensuring  that the progress is indeed  orderly. We don't want any  white elephants. They cost  too much und arc a great  deal of trouble."  Questioned about his views  on the marina, Dick says,  "Well, it's hard to sec why  they need as many as 500  berths, but I'll bc able to  find out more ubout it if I  am elected."  far as I am concerned,"  says the alderman, "the  money that is being spent on  studies of the marina is  money well-spent, for it may  save us millions later if wc  had gone into it ill-advised.  I have no doubt that the  marina would be good for  the village but I urn a bit  skeptical about our ability  to afford it,"  Alderman Hume said he  could see no problems arising  for the village as a result of  thc quashing of the Recreation  Referendum by thc provincial  government. "We have our  pool built und we knew that  it would be run at a deficit,"  hc said. The alderman said  he was not one of those who  saw thc Sunshine Coast as a  single entity. There arc two  communities and several  mini-communities. If the  people in Roberts Creek,  for example, want some of  the advantages of being a  village then they should  incorporate and become  one," hesuid.  "Whether we like it or  not we are becoming a bedroom for Vancouver," said  Hume, "and wc should bc  planning for that kind of  growth. Growth will help  keep the taxes down."  Alderman Lorraine Goddard  has decided to seek re-election to Gibsons Municipal  Council in this month's  elections. "I've taken two  years to learn what I'm doing  and I'd like to put it into  practice for thc next two  years."  Alderman Goddard was  bom in Regina. Saskatchewan, coming to Ihe West  Coast at the age of eleven.  She graduated from high  school ,itw��un'ey..,aild, eaiuc  lo Gibsons sixteen years ago.'  She and her husband. Ken,  bought Goddard's Fashion  Centre ten years ago.  In regard to thc village.  Alderman Goddard observed  that Gibsons wus in a growth  period and thc growth needs  control and intelligent spending of the resources wc have.  "We can't stop growth  because people will come and  fall in love with thc place as  I did. But the growth mustn't  be allowed to strangle us."  Specifically. Alderman  Goddard pointed to the need  for a long-range plan for thc  development of Brothers  Purk. "The development of  thut park is long over-due,"  she said.  NDP would  fire Bonner  "If wc become thc government of thc province again we will  fire Bob Bonner for not working in thc best interests of Ihe  province." Thc words of MLA Don Lockstead on a recent visit  lo Gibsons indicate the degree of dissatisfaction felt hy Ihe  opposition with thc management of B.C. Hydro.  In this specific instance Lockstead was commenting on Ihe  proposed powerline to bc built from Cheekeye to Dunsmuir lu  supply electricity to Vancouver Island. "Making a decision ou  this powerline al this time Indicates how irresponsible Hydro  Is. Thc public is against II and thc power corporation has not  adequately checked alternate sources of power," said Lock-  stead.  Hc pointed out lhal Hydro had dismissed the used of coal  readily available on Vancouver Island; they were against the  use of wood wastes. In addition a study was being prepared un  the possibility of shipping natural gas to Vancouver Island from  Williams Lake but B.C. Hydro had apparently no intention uf  waiting for this study.  Lockstead noted that Bonner was still talking about exporting  power to thc United States and said, "We've just got to separate Hydro from policy making. They arc in thc business of  supplying power, not making longrangc policy affecting the  entire province."  Support the  Poppy Fund  Support Ihe Poppy Fund  sponsored by thc Royal  Canadian Legion.

Sunshine Coast Credit  Union Manager Larry Macdonald has thrown his hat in  the ring to contest the November 18 elections for a seat on  the Sechelt Council. The  thirty-two year old Macdonald  was bom in Vancouver and  moved to the Sunshine Coast  two years ago with his wife  and two children.  At the present time he is  a member of Sechelt Volunteer Fire Department, In  Langley where he lived previously, he wus a member of  the Recreation Commission.  On the subject of thc Sechelt Council, Macdonald  says, "Thc biggest thing in  the next two years will bc  growth which will be facilitated by the completion of the  sewer  system.  Thc  present  Referendum  quashed  The recreation referendum  which was to go lo thc voting  public of the Sunshine Coast  on November 18 has been  quashed on thc instructions of  the provincial government.  Secretary-Treasurer of thc  Regional Board, Anne Press-  Icy, received a phone call  from Victoria last week which  Informed her that thc referendum will bc delayed pending the report of the Regional  Review Committee which  toured the province earlier  Ihis year.

"The next commercial  development will bc the  Teredo Street Development  and this should be looked at  very carefully," suid the  Credit Union Manager.  "We have an opportunity  here which conies rarely of  starting u commercial development absolutely from  scratch and if we take cure  il could bc a showcase development which would bc a  pleasure to live with for  the next twenty years or so."  Another area of concern  of Macdonald's was the confusion which has been apparent in the decision-making  process at Council of late,  pointing specifically to Council's actions on Whitaker  House and the Trail Bay  Development. He fell that  with some forethought  and care the decision-making process could be made  more efficient.  In conclusion, the candidate observed. "Development  should be on the Council's  terms. Growth is inevitable  but we can give il direction."  with the  ek thirtv  .*  Seehelt  Carl Chris-  if  A new face on the  political front  mas. who was chairman  'limber Days and co-chairman of thc Loggers' Sports  this year. Carl is one of those  stalwarts born iu Saskatchewan. He moved to the west  coast in 1926 and his career  since has almost been a who's  who of west coast occupations.  He worked his way up  through every job in the  woods before becoming a  logging contractor. As a  salesman for logging equipment he flew for three different corporations and when  he retired he was Western  Regional Sales Manager for  Canada Cur with a territory  covering B.C. and Alberta.  lu thc Forties he worked for  Standard Oil in Wilson Creek,  so though he look up permanent residence here just lasl  year his connections  Sunshine Coast go bt  years.  Of his candidature, Curl  told the Coast News, "Mj  main interest would be to  take over the portfolios of the  Airport and Parks and Recreation held in the outgoing  council by Frank Leitner."  He pointed out ihat Seehelt  must administer the Airport  for the next five years and  lhal at the present time only  the rental of a small house  produced any revenue. At  the prescnl time Carl is the  Secretary of the Elphinstone  Flung Club, which position  he would resign if elected  alderman.  On the subject of Parks and  Recreation. Carl said he had  studied the new Communitv  Plan. "Il represents planned  progress and I'm in favour dl  it. Doug Roy has clone an  excellent job."  For the future. Carl sees  the desirability of keeping  Seehelt Inlet as a sports  fishing preserve.

Lest we forget  A sad little story out of Toronto this  week indicates that it is possible that we  are forgetting the men who gave their  lives in the great wars of this century.  The Sunday before Armistice Day has  been the traditional day for a parade  through lhc streets of Ihe city by veteran*  in memory of Iheir fallen comrades.  This year they were pre-empted because  the T.Eaton Co. of Canada Ltd. decided  to have their Santa Claus parade on  November 5, yes. that is their Sanfa  Claus parade on November 5, and the  veterans' parade was cancelled.  Il is a clear case of the Gospel of Greed  which prevails on Ihis continent before  which all human activity must bow. It's  not too many years ago that the Santa  Claus parude was the first weekend in  December. Now it's a month earlier  and the tribute to be paid to thc fallen  must give way before the march of  Mammon.  It is deplorable that this should happen. If the public arc not lulled into total  insensibility there should be a cry of  outrage. It docs not seem to have been  forthcoming and the T.Eaton Co., the  nation, and the soldiers who died in the  service of the nation have been diminished by this display of crass commercialism.  Not a good omen  \  lhc action of the provincial government in refusing lo allow the recreation  referendum go before the public must  surely please no one. Even those who  fully intended to oppose the referenddfl)  must pause lo consider Ihe high-handed  actions of lhc provincial government who  have thus removed the righl lo decide  from lhc taxpayer in ihis vital area.  It is an action in keeping with thje  record ofa government which apparently  seeks io centralize as much of the decision-making process as possible in its  own hands. We have said before und will  say again and again thai it is preferable to  have lhc decision-making as much decentralized us possible. With all the  shortcomings of local government it  remains more responsive to the voting  public than any government in a distant  capital can bc or wants to be.  The reason given, that the government  was awaiting the report of the Regional  Review Commission before allowing thc  referendum, is also disquieting. Despite  assurances from Victoria that no major  changes are planned, we must wonder  if the Minister of Municipal Affairs knows  something we do not in advance of the  release of the report.  It is safe to predict that any changes  that are forthcoming will not be in the  direction of more local control over our  own affairs. And it is also safe to predict  that if thc report recommends still more  centralization the government will leap  to it with alacrity and some of the people  most vociferous in their opposition to  regional government will find that dealing with the anonymous bureaucrats in  Victoria will give them no joy.  Of course, there will be some who will  greet the move towards centralization of  decision-making in the provincial capital  with satisfaction. They will be those who  have the ear of the Socred government.  We have already noted that this is also a  government which believes firmly in  favouring its own.  We must now await the report of the  Regional Review Committee with some  considerable trepidation.  Constitution a la -Trudeau  It would appear that the conference in  Ottawa among Prime Minister Trudeau  and the premiers of thc provinces wijs  vintage Trudeau. There were the statesmanlike and conciliatory gestures lhal he  can sometimes make with considerable  grace, and the whole was spoiled by the  arrogance and petulance with which he  brought the conference to u close becauffi  he could not get ready agreement cm  what had been agreed about.  It is almost certain that the Prime  Minister docs sincerely and deeply feel  that ihe time has come to repatriate the  country's constitution. It is his tragedy  that hc is attempting to do it at the head  of a discredited government with an  election inevitable early in the next  year. It is largely interpreted, perhaps  unfairly, as u desperate attempt on his  part to redeem his political fortunes and  those of his party.  The kind of petulance and arrogance  that he displayed and which he now  seems to find unavoidable did little to  reassure the country that his motivation  in pressing thc constitutional issue was  a selfless one. The premiers feel that  Trudeau's days are numbered and  they can afford to outwait him. They  are probably right.  from the files of Coast News  *--   ~<f\S��  5 YEARS AGO  A picture on the front page of the  Coast News shows Ihree different  types of geese feeding on the lawn,  below the Municipal Hall.

MV MACHIGONNE, Fairmile converted into  passenger ferry, is seen backing from wharf. George Frith, in sleeveless sweater facing camera, in partnership with Gordon Ballentine,  had inaugurated Sea Bus Lines late in 1945. When that service  proved inadequate, Gibson Brothers of logging fame took over Sea  Bus assets and replaced its boats with the larger MACHIGONNE.  The vessel operated between West Howe Sound ports and Horseshoe  Bay. In 1951, with increasing pressure for motor vehicle transport.  Black Ball Ferries replaced this craft with the MV QUILLAYUTE.  Thus, within a few years after World War II, transportation to and  from the Sunshine Coast was altered quite dramatically. The wheeled  vehicle, which destroyed shipping lines, including Ihe Union Steamships, and desolated west coast ports that were not road ends, began  in the 1950's to change the shape of communities here.

L.R.Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  INTRODUCING MEG:  In life as in chess every  new move should have at  least two reasons for it. preferably comprehended in advance of the move. Thus do I  rationalize my recent acquisition ofa second dog.  There will be those who  feel that nothing could bc  more natural than having a  second dog since two dogs are  better than one. There may  even be extremists who consider three dogs better than  two. There will also bc those  who sourly growl that one dog  is too many.  As a matter of fact I've  twice before had two dogs.  The first time was in thc  Yukon. I arrived there with  the black spaniel Pogo Panache who was my companion  and friend for fourteen years  and shortly after my arrival  became the owner of a starving pup who became Sammy,  or Sam McGce for those more  formally inclined.  Sammy was a northern  cross dog with a bit of everything. He was born into the  domicile of one Emil Cornish,  one of thc very many elderly  eccentrics who still peopled  the creeks of the Klondike in  thc mid-Sixties. Emll lived  alone with his dogs and when  Sammy was born both his  bitches had litters and he  lived in splendid confusion  with twelve dogs, ten of them  untrained pups, in a one-room  log cabin. Now, that's a dog-  lover with a devotion that I  do not aspire to.  In any case Emil came down  with pleurisy and had to go  to the hospital. Art und Margie Fry took the two grown  dogs to keep for Emil but the  pups had lo go and the  R.C.M.P. got the job of  disposing of them. Their chosen method was to put thc  exhaust of their car into a  box containing thc ten pups  and asphyxiate them. Having  done that, they were faced  with a bit of a dilemma  since it was November in  the Klondike and thc ground  was frozen solid. They left  the box in the bushes until  Spring.  Several weeks later Art and  Margie Fry were cutting wood  on Bonanzn Creek und saw  two little heads peeping down  from the hill where Emil's  cabin stood und upon investigation found two starving  pups still alive in the extreme  cold. They had survived the  asphyxiation and chewed Iheir  way from lhc box of puppy  corpses.  Sam McGce grew to bc a  beautiful black and while and  golden dog. He was faithful and intelligent and humbly  grateful to have a home al  all. Hc never losl the habit  of Hopping on his belly on  the snow and ravenously  devouring snow und rabbit  droppings and I assumed that  had been Ihe pups' sustenance during the cold and  lonely time before discovery.  He had lhc heart of a king  but his back legs were rickety,  Hc was forever challenging  bigger dogs lo a fight which  he never won bul he never  stopped trying, lie also  showed remarkable Initiative  when it came io Impregnating females. One lady  left the Yukon in tears with  her pedigree German Shepherd noticeably pregnant  with my rickety mongrel's  offspring. In fuel he successfully muled with Pogo before  he hud learned lo lift his  leg.  He wus a great rover,  forever coming home with  porcupine quills iu his nose.  unci when I left the Yukon in  1966, destination unknown,  I deemed it Ihe kinder course  to leave him where he could  roam. Hc subsequently  failed to return from one of  his expeditions. His brother,  a quieter fellow, died last  winter.  Pogo, thc little spaniel.  subsequently shared her lasl  two years with the fine golden  fellow, Rab, till she died in  1976.  Which brings me hack to  my starting point and my  decision to once again be a  two��dog man. I have, as I  intimated, al least Iwo reasons  for the move. First, ever  since   I   can   remember    I  wanted one of the little black  and white dogs that thc farmers in South Ayrshire always  had. Border Collies, those  marvellously intelligent  winking dogs, have always  been my canine favourites.  I've watched Ihem at work  with cattle and sheep and  going through their paces at  sheepdog trials. One of, my  favourite cartoon characters  was a fellow culled Black Bob,  a collie who looked after his  shepherd muster, Andrew  Glen with a steadfast devotion  which predated and outshone  any exploits of Lassie.  And so. when in thc course  of visiting friends on Nelson  Island. I found neighbours  with n litter of Border Collies,  I pul my name down for a  female immediately.  Which brings mc to my  second reason for acquiring  a second dog. Sclflcssly and  without fanfare other than  ihese rumblings in the dear  old Coasl News I am embarking on a scheme to produce  Ihe perfect dog right here on  the Sunshine Coasl. He will  be called lhc Seaboard Collie. The plan is lo cross  my golden beauty Rab with  Meg Ihe little Border bitch.  Rab. you see, besides being  extremely handsome is the  soul of philosophic amiability.  Meg will provide thc wit and  extreme intelligence to the  union und the offspring will  be black and while and golden  dogs of three-quarter size  of greal good nature and  high intelligence. Please  don'i flood the Coasl News  wilh orders. Ihe scheme is  slill two years from initial  fruition.  And while Ihree dogs may  not be better Ihnn two,  ihree reasons for action,  in life us in chess, most  assuredly are. The third  reason is lhal it is a challenge and a responsibility  that I enjoy to train a willing pup wilh gentleness and  care to be the kind of dog  thai offends no one.  And they lake mc for walks,  too.  And so it was that in the  Autumn of the year of our  Lord nineteen-hundred and  seventy-eight, as the icy  blasts ripped moor and plain.  that the great Lord of our  boundless nation called unto  his Capital those foresworn to  him as their liege sovereign.  The many and various counts,  dukes, barons, princelings,  and earls bound to their  lord by ties of chivalry called  forth from their pallets in  the cosy bedchambers of  baronial halls, castles and  palaces made ready their  cavalcades for journies of  many leagues.  In Ottawa, the capital, lhc  wily and cunning lord of all  the provinces busied himself  in cautious preparation  with his Chamberlain, ministers, seneschals and scribes.  Sussex Hall had been abuzz  for many a week with rumours  of infidelity and knavishness  in the provinces, nol to mention a growing reticence  amongst burghers, peasants  and serfs. The Lord and master of all the provinces hud  been pressed by strong council of savants and wizards to  show a strong hand to his  subjects so as to regain their  diminishing resolve. The  Prince of High Prairie, the  Furl Clark had been treacherously spreading disaffection  among the populace. With his  kingdom thus in jeopardy,  his most puissant majesty  determined to risk all in a  desperate gamble by resorting to his favourite weapon:  sophistry.  To such purpose, he called  forth the greal und powerful  nobles of the land, not to  debate the wretched misery  of the common folk, but to  embark upon a great moral  crusade against the moribund  passages of the nation's  constitution.  Nor would hc endure the  entries of his lesser knights'  lo treat of matters of the  peasants in their fields, tinsmiths at their wheels, lhc  merchants ai their stalls.  thc serfs at their endless  labour or the plight of those  with neither bread nor shelter. Nay. these be nothing  to our feared sovereign ���  he would wrangle only over  distribution   of  powers   and  linguistic and human  rights,  so haughty had he become.  And so toward lhc capilal  his suzerains wended their  way replete wilh retinues of  squires, men at arms, damsels  and kindred. The Duke William of British Columbia,  accompanied by his seneschal  Rale Mair. musl needs sojourn furthest lo pay homage  to his liege, bill came he nol  wilh chaste heart or vericund  soul. The arrogance of mountains and distance hud long  since disaffected Ihis lord  from his master's grace.  The Baron of Alberta. Pclcr  of Lougheccl, sallied forth  from Calgary Castle with  swaggering insolence, prepared iu a moment to drop  the gauntlet lesl he not be  regarded for his wealth and  magnificence.  The Duke Sterling ol' Lyon,  fresh from victory over Ihe  peasants in a recent revolt,  was anxious io test his met lie  iu chivalrous combat, iu the  promised tournament,  The Grand Duke William  of Ontario, in his splendor.  arrogantly ignored Ihese upstart lords and demanded  sole audience wilh his majesty  so as to resolve the issue lo  the glory of his powerful  province.  So to. that most puissant  lord. Count Rene de Levesque  issued forth Irom his Quebec  stronghold to seize the moment if such moment should  arise. Of all his lords, his  majesty feared Ihis Ihe mosl.  The Count Levesque had  already threatened lo break  sacred oath and declare  himself King in his own  laud and such was his  influence among the common  folk of his vast territory that  his threats were not deemed  idle.  ' And so all gathered, The  great hall rang with hot debute for three clays, while  nighls were filled with the  sound of gaily, clanging  flagons, hautboys, minstrels  and such exotic entertainment  us would do honour lo his  majesty's noble guests.  After three clays of cozening, our Lord was seen to  wave departure to his barons  and their retinues, standing  on the parapets of his keep  Please turn lo page three  ���m Letters to the Editor g���r  Aree "F" end the referendum  Coast News, November 7,1978  Sir:  I was unable to attend the  October 25 Recreation Meeting in Gibsons but would  nevertheless like to take this  time to express my concerns.  My main concern is with  the labelling of Area 'F'  residents as parochial and  separatist in nature; no doubt  due to our objections to paying  two mills minimum for facilities for which we are presently paying one-half of  one mill.  If it is parochial to object  to my tax dollars helping lo  pay for a swimming pool in  Pender Harbour which my  family will never use, and to  help bail out an ill-conceived,  poorly located, privately  financed curling rink and  arena in Sechelt; then I  plead guilty.  If we are separatists because we question paying for  a playing field in the Redrooffs area when our own  children don't have a playground within walking distance, then "Viva la Area  ���F'Libre".  However, parallels between  our behavior in this referendum and the actions of  Area 'A' (Pender Harbour)  residents in the 1972 referendum can easily be drawn.  Indeed, while iu all other  areas a majority of the voters  was in favour of a Recreation  I enlre al Roberts Creek.  Uca 'A' voters were 85%  against. Had I lived there I  would probably have voted  similarly, as lhal Recreation  package had no relevance to  that community.  This brings us to the ob  vious conclusion that people  should only be asked to pay  for those facilities which are  relevant to them.  Areas 'A' and 'B' should  co-operate on the building  and maintaining of their  pool.  Areas 'C. 'D', 'E', 'F',  Gibsons and Sechelt should  combine their resources  and construct an arena at  Roberts Creek.  The present arena should  continue to be managed by  thc curlers and debenture  holders who built it, to do  with us they wish.  Pulpmill tuxes should be  distributed among the areas,  Elves Club  taking     into     consideration  where mill employees live.  Local projects should be  financed by the community  concerned, i.e. playgrounds,  community halls, etc.  In closing I urge the Regional Board to abandon its  proposed referendum and its  misconceived attempts to  sell it to the voters.  If this Recreation Package  is sold to thc public it would  only reaffirm thc words of  P.f.Barnam, "There's a  sucker born every minute," ���  I only hope they don't live  on the Sunshine Coast,  R.Qually,  Area 'F'  Sechelt  Council  .  Radio  I /haek  Dick Clayton of Trail Bay  Developments, was present  nl Wednesday night's Council  meeting in Sechelt to iron out  the controversies over the  land clearing at the mall  expansion.  It was the suggestion of  Alderman Jorgensen that thc  area should be declared a  development permit area.  This would give the Council  control over development as  per the terms of the permit ���  this type of permit was recently legislated to replace the  land use contract. The expansion would not necessarily  need a permit, so long as it  adhered to ihe guidelines of  it. Mr. lemieux, the spokesman for the people of the  neighbourhood was invited  into Ihe discussion. It was  generally agreed that a ten-  foot buffer area between the  expansion unci the highway  would suffice. This buffer  would be landscaped starting  al a height of four feet on the  east end and progressively  rising to the western end.  The Clerk, Tom Wood, was  asked to arrange a meeting  between Len Van Egmond  and B.A.Blacktop, in order  to finish construction of  Binnacle. There is at present  a difference of opinion between B.A.Blacktop and Van  Egmond whether or not thc  paving is completed.  The utility corridor proposal  is still awaiting word from  Victoria. As a result of this  the rcplotting of Block 1331  is still up in the air,  dependent upon lhc route  of the future through highway  across the property.  By-law 186, the setting of  the municipal election advance poll for November 15  was given firsl, second  and third readings.  The Economic Study made  a request to Council for  $1,000; it was received  favourably and passed as a  motion.  Sllngs(cont'd)  with mirthless grin. Nor  hud he gained his sacred  chalice; but all had foresworn  lo gather yet again in thc  New Year to reconsider  his proposals. Hc had gained  some purpose; the lords were  cozened by his gracious  mood and once again Ihe  thoughts of his subjects were  drawn away from their rcul  despair. It is nol for nothing  that our Lord Pierre I was  set above us, by the grace of  God.  Editor:  Occasionully we hear that  someone received a food hamper from the Elves and did  not really need it. I think it  is worthy to note what one of  our former ministers here had  to say on thc matter. He said:  "Who arc wc to JUDGE  who is needy or not: just  because a big car or a boat  sits in a yard does not assure  that there is food on the table  there." He went on lo say it  does not matter if a few get a  hamper that do not need it,  as long as all the deserving  ones (hut do need it, get u  hamper.  The delivery men know that  many a lime tears arc shed  when the hampers arrive.  Some lonely recipients are  overwhelmed to know that  someone cares.  The Elves believe it is a  commendable gesture how the  residents of the community,  thc business men and the  service clubs have so unselfishly banded together thc  past five yeurs to see that no  one goes without at Christmastime. The Elves will carry  on with the hampers as long  us the need is there und the  donations continue to come in.  The following arc excerpts  taken from u few of the letters  written by grateful hamper  recipients.  "It certainly made our  Christmas, it was our only  gift. Thank you and God Bless'  you all." "Thank you for making a better Christmas....1  really have faith in humanity  once again." "I had to shed  tears of gratitude. Thank you  for the hamper and gifts."  "You made our Christmas a  bountiful one; thank you for  the hamper, turkey and  gifts." "1 cannot express the  pleasure it brought to our  family; your work, time, and  good-wiil arc appreciated  much more than you know."  President,  Elves Club  Students  Sir:  The Elphinstone Student  Research Productions will  be hosting and Video-Taping  an All-Candidates meeting  for the residents of the Gibsons Village and Area 'F'.  The meeting will bc held on  Monday, November 13  at 7:30 p.m. in the Elphinstone cafeteria. This meeting  will give thc public the chance  to hear and question the views  of our local candidates who are  running for thc November 18  election. Incumbent Alderman  Lorraine Goddard and Ted  Hume will be present and also  Keith Evans and Richard  Fitchett. David Leslie and  David Hunter who arc running  for director of Area 'F' will  also bc on hand.  Kim Anderson,  Elphinstone Student  Research Productions  President Jon McRae introduced Tom Nishimura of  Canada Manpower at the  seventh General Meeting of  the Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce held  on October 11. Mr. Nishimura discussed the Job  Experience and Training  Programme, the objective of  which is to help young people  become permanent productive  members of the labour force.  He told the members present that any well-established  employer in the private sector is eligible for the programme which has a reimbursement rate of 50% of  wages up to SI.50 per hour.  Trainees should be 15���24  . years of age to work a minimum of thirty hours per week,  maximum of forty hours.  Businessmen interested in  this programme should  phone Larry Labonte for more  information at 886-7710.  In other Chamber business,  President McRae reported  on the success of the Dogfish Derby and thanked Super  Valu for their support. Al  Wagner reported on the possible B.C.Cycling Race which  would be held next year,  running from Gibsons to  Earls Cove and return. Ev  Vernon reported on the success of Tourism this year with  the ferries and the tourist  booth manned by students.  Chamber members also  learned that 263 applications  have been received to date for  berths at the proposed marina  and that the Travelodge  expects to start before the  end of the year with full  restaurant and lounge  facilities.  4  tenant  paRTicipacwn  The Canadian movement lor personal fitness.  ���aaHaa/hjiaaU.ffCTigal rMiaAaeli SMM/llMh E3EE23jR��*0/liaeli taAyml*AA*\^SSSSSl*A*AllAAA*\  a  autosound  8 TRACK  CAR  PLAYER  j Reg. *6995  SALE $39^  J&C ELECTRONICS  Radio/haek  authorized Sales Centre  Cowrie St., Sechelt, B.C.

ITicy have exacted an  i m.run.us    tithe    of    limber  Irom these hills and valleys  since logging began and mosl  ,'t tins wood served time in  the salt-chuck before disappearing forever up the jack-  ladders "I the mills. In such a  scu-edged    and    waterway-  riddled country, floating lugs  tu   market   was   ihe   obvious  method from ihe start.  Log-  barges, dozer-boats, winders,  power-augers     and      other  mechanical  equipment   have  automated   the   trade   to   a  greal extent in thc lasl twenty  years. Prior to thai, it was a  l;ir tougher proposition.  Howe Sound today  is one  ol the main log-sorting areas  on the ( oast. Millions of feet  of wood  are  disgorged  each  year from  the  self-dumping  log-barges,  to  be   separated  into species. When I was a boy  ni  Purl   Mellon,  ihis colossal  activity   had   not   yet   begun  I'til  wc were still very   cotls-  vnuts ul  booms  since  there  ���\ as a saw mill un one side of  the    plant   and    a    logging-  camp un the oilier. We were  i vprcsslv   forbidden   to  play  on  the boom  but  uf course  ���.   did un Sundays, holidays  .oul  any   oilier  lime  we  got  lhc chance. Ihere was a fine  sense of excitement in being  able io venture oul over Ihe  waler on  those  greal.  loose  mils ol bobbing, often dangerously-unstable lugs. Sometimes  we'd  attempt  a  little  nidimciitarv birling on a high-  riding cedar. I don't suppose  the fact  that wc could easily  have fallen between the logs  and drowned, even so much  as occurred lo us.  Fooling about on booms  when you're a kid is one  thing:  working  on  ihem  fur  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  wages as an adult, quite  another. When I finally hit  the logging-camps in my  late teens, I became a rigging-  man and remained one for  most of my woods career.  I preferred solid ground  under my feet when you  came right down to it, sleep  and risky as that ground  frequently was. But it is  difficult lo work in the woods  as long as I did. without  gaining a bit of booming  experience and for two short  periods. I found myself on  lhc business-end of a pike-  pole.  The firsl boom-work 1  did was at a small gyppo  near the head of Jervis  Inlet. Most camps had at  least one regular boom-man  but Ihis particular outfit was  an exception. The practice  at this shoestring-budget  camp was to shut down the  yarding when they got enough  wood in the water and put  the entire crew to work,  stowing and swiftering the  logs. There was more than a  little complaining over this  practice but we went along  with it. It was a simple question of economics. If wc didn't  get the boom oul. Ihere was a  strong likelihood thai we  might not get paid.  A couple of thc men had  done a bit of booming before.  The rest of us were green as  grass and the operation was a  complete schcmozzlc from (lie  start. An ordinary flat boom  is a simple-enough structure  in theory. Thc wood is stowed  in sections whose length is  dictated by the length of the  longest logs. The sections are  contained in a rectangular  fiame of chaincd-togcther  boomsticks and cinched light  wilh swiftcrs (other boom-  slicks dragged crosswise  al intervals across the slowed  logs). Thai is all very well in  theory but putting it into  practice with a fumblefootcd  crew of rank amateurs, is  quite another matter. To make  things worse, there was a  total lack of mechanical  equipment. Thc sticks had to  be bored laboriously with a  hand-auger and the swiftcrs  pulled into place by means of  a primitive hand-winch. With  so many factors against us,  the job went slowly and wetly.  Much of thc timber was small,  lacking in buoyancy and difficult to stow. Seldom more  than a couple of hours went by  without someone hauling  himself cursing and spluttering out of that chilly  inlet-head water. Despite  the handicaps and mishaps,  we somehow muddled  through. It took us the better  part of a week but Finally,  to everyone's profound relief,  thc boom was finished. This  onerous experience did little  to endear me to the booming  trade. I returned to thc  straightforward sidchills,  vowing to stay there.  I doubt if 1 would ever have  voluntarily gone booming  again were it not for a singularly horrific piece of  country on the south face of  Elphinstone Mountain. I  have alluded to this dreadful  show before in my poem "The  Last Spar Tree". Suffice to  say thai in all my years in  thc camps, I never saw a more  unholy chunk of real-estate.  I was pulling-rigging for a  giant of a man called Big  Bail Clapperton and he  swore he'd never seen a  setting quite that bad himself. I stuck it out for about a  week but every day got harder. I'd wake up each morning  wondering if I'd bc coming  home that night. Finally. I  couldn't take it any longer. I  asked them to make out my  lime.  WIN $150,000  GRAND PRIZE, OR SAVE IT WITH THE BANK OE MONTREAL AND  It was mid-November,  not a particularly propitious  time of year to pull the pin.  If I didn't manage to land  another job and gct properly  laid-off, I'd have to wait six  weeks for my U.l.C. As a  result, I lost little time in  checking out thc other local  camps. But it was getting too  close to Christmas and everyone was hanging tight. Sonic-  one tipped mc that one of thc  sorting-grounds was looking  for a man. It had been fourteen years since my onerous  experience up Jervis. What  the hell, things must have  improved since those benighted days. I phoned thc boom-  foreman, lied a little and got  lhcjob.  Booming in thc mid-  Sixties was entering a transitional stage. Dozer-boats  and winders were already in  fairly wide use but most of the  stowing was still done by  hand. I had hircd-on to do  this job. Apart from those  few days years before, my  stowing experience was  virtually non-existent but l  figured I could fake it though  somehow.  My stowing-partner was a  small, grizzled, black-haired,  ill-tempered man called  Shorty Christiansen. Shorty  pegged mc for a greenhorn  right off thc bal. "Jesus H.  Christ, they always got to  stick me with you guys!"  Shorty was certainly not thc  world's most willing or patient  teacher. If I didn't grasp  something Ihe first time hc  told me, he'd mumble and  sputter to himself and refuse  lo speak to me for a couple  of hours. II would bc an understatement to say that it was  difficult to learn the job with  an ornery old coot like him for  a teacher. A good part of thc.  time, he simply left mc to my  own uncertain devices. I did  a lot of pushing and pulling  but often I was just working  against myself and getting  nowhere. It soon became  uncomfortably apparent lhal  there was a good deal more" la  hand-stowing than I'd realized. Shorty had been doing  il for thirty-five years and  knew all thc tricks but he was  certainly grudging about passing them along to me. The  main trouble with booming  from my point of view was  that you had to practise it  in the open where the foreman  could observe your every  move, false or otherwise.

I  was soon convinced that  about thc only things I liked  about booming were the  bounishack bullscssions at  noon, the twice-daily coffee-breaks and quitting-time.  But even my ineptitude  was briefly upstaged by thc  arrival of an unbelievably  hopeless character called  Clarence Mackic. Mackic  set sonic sort of record for  clumsiness by managing to  fall off thc stiff-leg before he  even got out to the boom.  Hc contrived to land in the  drink at least three more times  before noon. Al this point,  the boom-boss politely  suggested thai hc had better  try another line of work. 1  was sad to sec him go.  Mackic's dismal performance  must have even made me look  good.  But not good enough. At  the end of thc second week,  ihe boom-foreman .jailed mc  aside after work and I knew  what he was going to say before hc said it. Thus ended the  second of my two fleeting  stabs at the booming business. A couple of days later,  thc side-rod from thc camp  I'd quit, called mc up and  asked me if I'd consider  coming back to finish the  setting. There was only a  couple of weeks' work left  so I agreed. Alcr thc profitless session on ihe boom, that  mangy suicide-show didn't  look quite so bad after all.  6TWI LIGHT  ^THEATRE?  886-2827  GIBSONS  Wed. & Thurs. Nov. 8&9 8 p.m.  Fri.&Sat.

Reynolds' he-man  image is cut to shreds as he  tearfully accepts thc news of  his terminal illness. Dom  DeLuisc, as the lunatic who  tries to help Reynolds commit  suicide, portrays a split personality on such a wild level  that he steals thc film. Other  stars are Joanne Woodward.

Coast News, November 7,1978  Book Review  Encyclopedia  By John Moore  I think I first encountered  the    encyclopedia    when    I  was eight or nine years old.  I   say   "the   encyclopedia",  but I really mean the "idea"  of    the    encyclopedia.    My  first     actual     encyclopedia  was   one   of   those   cheap  illustrated    editions    which  appeared, volume by volume,  week by week, on a rack in  thc    supermarkets    of    the  1950's. My parents picked up  a volume with the groceries  (literally  food   for  thought),  and it was one of the best  investments they ever made.  The idea that the sum total of  human  knowledge  could  be  contained in a set of books I  might possess was incredibly  exciting. I looked forward to  each   successive   volume   as  though they were episodes of  a serialized mystery. 1 remember the satisfaction I felt when  we finally acquired the entire  set;  I felt I had thc secrets  of thc universe in my power,  imprisoned in my bookshelf,  where I could unlock them at  my leisure.  In time, of course, that set  of encyclopedia died an  honourable death; worn out  in the service of four curious  kids, and as for the secrets  of the universe, I'm still  working on those, but 1 still  can't resist a bookshelf  graced by a row of uniform  bindings, identified by  imposing Roman numerals,  a marvellous methodical  repository of alphabetically  arranged knowledge. I've  learned more on a rainy  afternoon with a volume of  encyclopedia than I have in  whole years at school and  university. These voyages  of exploration usually begin  thc   search   for   some  encyclopedias today.  By   definition   any   single  work, regardless of the number    of     volumes,     which  attempts to contain and correlate all thc available information on a single subject may  be called an encyclopedia, and  in fact the early en:ycloped-  iasts  covered  only   a   fairly  narrow   range   of   subjects.  Many encyclopedias were no  more   than   dictionaries   of  specialized   terms   used   in  the arts and sciences and thc  august     French     Academy  was even moved to censure  one group of encyelopcdiasts  for having suggested, at least  by implication, a lack in their  own official  Dictionary. The  scope   of   the   encyclopedia  was  gradually   extended   to  include   history,   geography,  politics   and   biographies   of  important people. The encyclopedia, as we know it, has  come to mean a work which  attempts   to   give   not   only  definitions of words, but as  much information as possible  on as wide a range of subjects  as   possible.   The   unspoken ideal of thc encyclopedia is still thc dream of my  childhood; a work which embodies   the   sum   of  human  knowledge in essence, an ink  and paper monument to our  species   greater    than    any  Pyramid,  Parthenon, or Taj  Mahal.  Like all ideals, it is ultimately unattainable; encyclopedias still operate, out of  necessity, on a principle of  selection. As thc sheer volume  of human knowledge increases  the task of the encyclopediast  is less the acquisition and  ordering of information than it  is the decision to select or  reject data on thc basis of  some standard of relevance  and importance. Such standards, whether set by in-  or committees,  always differ, however  minutely, and so for that rca-  guage. That one you can  keep just for yourself. By the  way, don't overlook the complete sets of older encyclopedias that occasionally  turn up in junk stores and  antique shops. Most of thc  information in this article  was cribbed from just such a  set, The Harmsworth Encyclopedia, a turn-of-the-Cen-  tury British popular encyclopedia that I picked up  cheap. You have to be prepared to sort through the  outdated material, but even  that can be an excellent source  of historical perspective.  Well, that time of the year  is approaching and although  your kids may not be too  thrilled to wake up to an  encyclopedia on Christmas  morning, you won't have to  fix it or replace thc batteries  in a week. If they do utterly  destroy it in a year or more  you'll know it's served its  purpose.  Elves Club  The Elves Club is holding  its first raffle. Tickets will  bc sold in thc Sechelt and  Gibsons malls on Saturday.  November 18, 1978, Tickets  arc also available at many of  the stores on thc Sunshine  Coast. For only $1.00 you can  win a hind-quarter of beef,  a ten to twelve pound turkey,  or a four to five pound ham.  The drop-off depots are now  being set up around thc  Sunshine Coast.

Workshop success  VLASSIFIEIJ JWS  By Jo-Anne Bushnell  It was an exciting day for  the twenty-five participants  who attended the Volunteer  Workshop jointly sponsored  and organized by Continuing  Education and thc Volunteer  Bureau. People left feeling  stimulated and feeling as  though thc workshop had  really enriched their lives.  Thercse Egaa, Coordinator of Volunteer Programmes  for thc North Shore Family  Services has a real gift for  helping to make people feci  good about themselves and  feel good about thc people  around them. At the workshop, she was able to draw  thc participants into a cohesive and responsive group.  Representatives from Pender  Harbour, Sechelt, Davis Bay  and Gibsons, most of whom  did not know each other,  gathered together to learn  more about a "helping  relationship".  Thc group discussed the  reasons why a person volunteers and some focus was  given to thc needs of our  community, both present  and future. Thc Volunteer  of thc 70's contributes effectively in our community.  When considering the area  in which a volunteer offers  his or her services, it is  much more beneficial to all  involved when the volunteers  own needs are recognized.  Much discussion centred  around helping other people.  The group looked at the  characteristics of a helping  relationship. Practice was  given in learning how one  might handle a given situation but one must be aware of  the dimensions of the situation. Working in pairs thc  participants practised some  communication skills ��� listening, paraphrasing, and describing feelings expressed  while a person talked.  Since the response to this  workshop was so positive.  Continuing Education and  thc Volunteer Bureau have  decided to organize a half  day workshop to bc held on  November 30. We are really  excited that Elizabeth Brown  has agreed to lead this event  lor us. She will focus on the  practical side of communicating and helping other people.

Film Society  By Allan J.Crane  As I indicated in a previous  column, the screening of films  is u hazardous operation. I  also indicated iu last week's  article thc possibility that the  Film Society would have to  change ils screening evening.  A letter from Wesl Coast  I'heatre Service Limited,  hooking agents tor the Twilight Theatre's regular programme, confirms thai this  will have lobe done.  1 hc agency lias been  experiencing difficulties  null some of I lie major <lis-  tributors (Columbia and  Universal films, for example)  who refuse to hook pictures  ivhieh arc expected lo do well  .n lhc bn.\ office i'ii weekends  when lhc I-il iii Society is  screening films. Thc distributor ol Sgt. Pepper's Lonely  Hearts Club Band has informed the agency of their  intention to cancel thc booking  nl Ihis film (scheduled to play  .ii thc Twilight 'I'heatre  November 15���18) because a  Film Society showing is scheduled for lhal weekend.  [tightly or wrongly, thc dis-  tributoi's believe that weekend  screenings of films for  the  Film .Society are making inroads into their regular  commercial business, and thc  agency has suggested that the  Society's screenings be moved  to a mid-week date. Neither  the management of the Twilight Theatre nor thc Kwahtahmoss Film Society has  any alternative but to comply.  Weekends are considered  prime lime for movie audiences, and ii is the film  distributors who set the terms  which usually result in at  least fifty percent and sonic-  limes as much as oO���70";. of  thc gross box-office receipts  being payable to the distributor. The Film Society's  booking for Outrageous,  therefore, originally set for  Friday, November 17, will  now be moved lo Tuesday,  November 14 at 9:00 p.m.,  and the Twilight Theatre's  regular feature for that  evening. Capricorn One.  will be brought forward to  7:00 p.m. for the occasion.

Some people feel that 9:00  p.m. is rather late for a film  showing to start, but films arc  regularly shown at 7:00 p.m.  and 9:00 p.m. in Vancouver  and in many small towns  too.

I saw  this wonderful film at Saskatoon last May. Kurosawa's  cinematography in the Siberian tundra is positively  breath-taking, and the relationship between an army  engineer and the guide, Derzu  Uzala, is depicted with  great sensitivity. This film is  an astonishing visual experience. Although the dialogue  is in Russian (directed by the  renowned Japanese director),  sub-titles arc not at all intrusive, and the dialogue is easy  to follow. The audience  reaction index to this film in  Saskatoon was 84.0 which  gives some idea of its exceptional   calibre.

The trip was organized by  Maryanne West and Dave  Hclcm.  The building is an eight  floor structure. Three of the  eight arc below ground. These  three Hours arc the heart of  C.B.C.  The building was designed  for mine practical reasons  lhan appearance, even though  ii is exceptionally outstanding, This is because the filming and broadcasting studios  needed to he in a soundproof place and the best  place where noise inter-  i'crancc is the lowest is  underground.  One of the most outstanding  studios is lhc orchestra studio  which was buill in an .area  like a box within a box.  The inner room rests on  rubber cushions.  From the huge ventilation  system which takes up the top  iwo floors of the building  protrude five long tubes,  each of which is aboul five  feel round, carrying cool  air to the hot studios below.  The purpose of the lour  was to learn the technical  aspects of television broadcasting. We went to different  studios learning what different people's functions  were and how il all fits  together.  On our round-about tour  wc first visited the Radio  Broadcasting Control room.  In this room is housed a  huge computer which handles  both English and French radio  stations with a little help  from five or six technicians.  Continued from Page 1  Department of Municipal  Affairs, Tom Moore, when  contacted by thc Coast News  said that it would be wrong to  draw thc Inference from thc  government's     action     that  From here we ventured off  into a sniall packaging studio. This studio can bc used  to edit pre-taped program nies  hut for the majority of time it  is used to send out live  radio broadcasts such as  interviews and music.  The Rene Simard apartment  house set was the next area  of interest. Here we saw Ihe  set for ihe show from lhc  director's viewpoint. We were  informed aboul lhc lighting  and audio consoles. Also  we learned how important a  director is lor running a  good show.  From there we went to  a set which was going to be  used later. We had an hour  break, during half of which  our group viewed the filming  of a segment of the Rene  Simard Show.  Next on the agenda was the  master control room. From  here English ami French  programmes were distributed  throughout thc country.  Pari of this area was Tele-  cini, where movies nr slides  arc pul on the air.  The record library has a  huge, up to dale selection of  records. It is used by directors and disejockeys.  One of the more interesting areas, lo a lot of people,  was the props area. This  immense section covers  most of thc third Hour underground in the C.B.C. building.  Il includes the paint shop,  plastics shop. woodwork  shop, drafting shop, and  special effects. We saw  upcoming sets for future  films and shows. These sets  were in all stages Irom planning lo finishing. Seeing wc  had lo return to Gibsons  wc had to cul thc tour short.  The trip was very cdueationall  and lots of fun. Wc hope to  do things like ihis again.  major changes were in store  for Regional Districts.

Sechelt Community Plan  A public meeting on the  Sechelt Community Plan at  the Senior Citizens' Hall was  attended by Fifty-six people on  Monday evening. October 30.  For the most pari the Plan  was received favourably.  Unavoidably, of course, there  were some points of contention, the main one being the  continuation of thc commercial development westward  as far as Trail Avenue.  It was felt by residents in  thai area, that it would bc  detrimental io their property  values, plus it would pul them  m a situation of being a  buffer between commercial  and school /ones, li was pointed out by thc Planner Doug  Rove lhal while ii was his  committee's recommendation  it was not to be considered in  any way as a foregone conclusion, lhc Community  Plan, he explained, was  merely a projection lor the  future, and any changes in  /oning would still have to go  through ihe normal municipal  channels. He added Ihat the  Community Plan was now a  mandatory    procedure,    de  signed to give municipalities  a direction for ihe future. This  type of plan was worked out  in five-year increments, up  to twenty years, and naturally  if the time factor increased  then the guidelines would bc  more general.  Parking was also discussed',  many different views were  given, but ii was generally  recognized that it would  become a problem and had to  bc looked into thoroughly.  if a balanced community w.is  to be achieved.

Const Strokers  By Dennis Gray  Most moto-cross riders are  as lasting as Autumn leaves  and their nameless faces and  colourful jerseys flip through  one's memory like a motorized  kaleidoscope. If they have the  price Ihev can have the game  if nol the name, and many who  were more successful at  collecting mud than trophies  will still be talking aboul  their exploits when they have  grandchildren on their knees.  lhc sport is tough, competi  tive, and gelling more expensive each year, and to be a  perennial one musl be dedicated.  hi the midst of Ihese one-  season one-race wonders are  riders whose names arc  synonymous wiih racing.  Names like McKenzic, once  made as familiar by Dayton  McKenzic as the deep fircy  exhaust note of the big  B.S.A. Hat trackers he rode.  More recently. wherever  men put their skills and  machines on a starting line  Coast Industries  886-9159  | Behind Peninsula Transport  Fire Screens  Wrought Iron  & Aluminum Railings  General Welding  one or more of his three sons  can be expected to keep the  McKenzie name in the winners' circle.  Il is only natural that boys  w ho admire their father would  want to follow in his steps. It  is also natural thai a father  who eared for his sons would  try lo encourage Ihem into  something with less risks and  more rewards. Il was for this  reason that one Christmas  when the boys wanted a  motorcycle they got bicycles  instead. When they had  learned to ride them around  the block on one wheel thev  were given a unicycle. Each  of the three boys went through  ihis preparation before getting a motorcycle, They then  had lhc skill, all that was  necessary was determination  and luck.  Anyone watching a McKenzic ride knows he has determination; luck is something  else. Some say there is only  one kind of luck ��� bad.  The rest is skill. At any rate  djsS&Sh,  it was this kind of luck Glen  McKenzic had in 1974 vvhen  his brilliant riding made him  the outasighl leader in Canadian moto-cross points only  to bc permanently sidelined  by a tragic, crippling street  accident. The fact that he is  today riding and winning in  motor-carl racing illustrates  the type of firm-jawed determination his fans have come to  expect of him.  Before thc dust had settled,  his younger brother Larry  was giving race fans a demonstration in skillful bike handling in his joyful flat-out  sideways racing style.  He was also well on his way  to being Number One Canadian vvhen, in thc Spring of  1477, hc also had a measure  of racer's luck, sustaining a  lingering knee injury from a  fall. Fortunately he is once  again back in form and now  doing battle with his younger  brother Danny.  Anyone taking stock of  these young athletes' lives  may well say they are not  getting rich. They are not  getting any younger. They  will probably not go down  in history books. They might  never be world champions  or even Canadian champions.

The wind played  a crucial role in both games  interfering somewhat with  thc Renegades' usual powcr-  plav style and accuracy.  Saturday, October 28 at  Richmond Park:  Renegades    vs     Burnaby  South  Most of the action in the  first half was centered in front  of Burnaby South's goal.

The  action of thc second half was  based mainly on both teams  trying their best to score a  winning goal. One could  say it was an exciting game  to watch but too many missed  opportunities to score by thc  Renegades brought an overall disappointing note to the  game.  Saturday,   November   4   al  Wolfsoiig Park, U.B.C:  Renegades      vs      Miloni  Ecology  Last    week's    game   was  definitely of a better calibre.  Miloni  Ecology scored  their  first and only goal in the first  half as they played with the  wind behind them. Their goal  was scored early in the game;  in   essence   the   Renegades  concentrated   their   play   on  defence      against       Miloni  Ecology and their wind advantage. They held thc onslaught well until the second  half when  thc   tables  were  turned in their favour. Three  minutes into thc second half,  defence      full-back       Gary  Feschuk scored the tying goal  standing just past  thc halfway mark, a well-aimed kick  with a little help from the wind  brought about  this  unusual  goal.  Twenty   minutes  later  Barry   Johnson   scored   the  winning   goal,   leaving   thc  Renegades yet lo he defeated.  As  the  season   advances,  ^ the  Renegades   are   playing  S steadily   better   games   and  J holding their advance position  S in Division 7. Many observers  5 feci they will go far as their  improves  with each  meet    against    the  teams of that division.  By popular demand, and  because of the interest and  enthusiasm of the people  already involved, a second  Adult Gymnastics class is  being held on Mondays from  6:45 p.m. until 8:10 p.m. in  thc gymnasium of Cedar  Grove Elementary School.  Led by Jeff Brown, this  class allows people with  little or no experience in  gymnastics to explore body  movement through tumbling  and learning basic mat work,  and through such adventures  as practising on Ihe trampoline and the balance beam.  This class therefore enhances bolh limbcrness and  flexibility, and also endurance  and eardio-vascular strength.  Besides that, it's a lot of fun!  It is not too late to join  this class, as each person's  routine is worked out on an  individual basis, and each  person progresses according  to his or her own ability, fhe  fee for this class is SI.00 pel-  session, and for more information aboul il you may call the  Recreation Service al 885-  5440.  Ski Club  Over thirty people braved  Ihe storm to gather at the  Bonagtiro home for the Tetrahedron Ski Club pre-season  get-together. Experiences  and ideas were exchanged,  and plans lor the coming season were discussed al length.  As several of those interested  in taking up cross-country  skiing are complete novices,  special groups lor these people will be held to help Ihem  acclimatize to equipment,  waxing. and techniques.  Once there is sufficient snow,  tours to different areas will  be held for eight consecutive  weeks, most of which will be  on Ihe Sunshine Coast. We  hope lo make maximum use of  the trailer "warming hut"  and chalet on Mount Elphinstone. A hike lo this area  before the snow is too deep  is proposed.  Further details of the  winter's activities will be  discussed ai the Annual  General Meeting at thc'Rob"  ells Creek Elcmentarv  School tl���s Thursday.

To me it  came as a complete surprise.  Last week I wrote about  Hudson Creek, where thc  Gibsons Wildlife Club has  been stream clearing. The  name of this wee body of  water is in fact, HUSDON  CREEK; it's named after one  of thc old families in the area.  As if this weren't bad  enough, I went on to tell about  the school kids in Pender who  had their fish hatching box  vandalized. I mentioned that  some fella from thc fisheries  was going to come up with  eggs and show them the  process. Here again there was  a bit of an inaccuracy. The  eggs weren't to hc brought  in ��� thc eggs from the creek  itself will be used. This part  is for Ray Kraft's benefit, just  in case hc thought that next  year Pender fingcrlings would  find themselves rubbing fins  with some outsiders.  Now that I've done that and  can carry on with my unblemished life, I'll pick on someone else. 1 don't know thc  people involved, but someone  has been using salmon at  Twin Creeks for target practice. Although 1 can't agree  with the choice of targets, I  can see the practicality in  this sport. You don't have  to set up your targets, and it's  better than leaving  those nasty broken bottles  around. Besides, salmon arc  biodegradable after all,  aren't they?  To those concerned, congratulations on your ingenuity. The fish would probably  thank you too, if they were  alive to do so. After all, this  is the first year the diversion  has been used and these are  the first fish to use it. If we  wipe them out this year, then  they won't have to bother  going to all the trouble of  coming from the ocean,  battering themselves against  thc rocks and currents in  the creeks, only to end up as  a target for a lazy sharpshooter.  Keith (heron) Simpson;  Keith, who has been doing  the heron banding in Pender  Harbour this year, was back  on thc Coast last week. He  gave a film presentation at  the Gibsons Wildlife Club on  Wednesday. Unfortunately  this was not too well attended.  I got there at the tail end of  it myself, as I had another  meeting on the same evening,  and my presence swelled the  numbers to double figures.  From the reactions of those  present it was a worthwhile  evening, ranging over many  subjects. When I arrived, the  topic of conversation was  predator control.  lt was hoped that Keith  would be able to do a presentation at the schools, but his  time was limited. He was  only up for two days to check  on the movements of thc  banded herons. I had planned  to go out with him on Thursday for a looksee. When 1  called him, the report was  that the weather was terrible,  and hc was going to make one  quick trip, and call it a day.  At least one good thing came  out of his visit. Several months  ago a Lady Amherst pheasant  was killed by dogs at Selma  Park. Since then I've had the  bird in a friend's freezer, waiting for a chance to stuff it.  An owl had been found up  here and they are in demand  Church Services  Roman Calhollc Service*  Rcv.T.Nicholson. Pastor  Times of Sunday Mass:  8i00p.ni.

This organization representing sixty-five  labour and social democratic  parties with an aggregate  membership of fifteen million people and eighty million  voters traces its origins back  through the twists and turns  of history to 1864 when Karl  Marx founded thc First  International in London.  Social democracy has come  a long way from the first  meeting which was attended  by a few workers and intellectuals seeking to find an  appropriate political response  to the evils of early European  industrialization. Today the  Socialist International is  represented by heads of state:  household names like Willy  Brandt of Germany, Golda  Meir of Israel, Olof Palme of  Sweden. Francois Mitterrand  of France, and Michael Man-  ley of Jamaica. At present  fifteen of the S.I. parties  have been elected to govern  their countries, either alone  or in coalition. Canada's  affiliate is thc N.D.P. repre-  at the University. So Keith  is off with both birds, he's  going to try and make a  deal with the University. If  he gives them the owl, then  perhaps, being the good  fellows they are, they might  just mount the pheasant for  him. If he pulls it off, it would  look great at the Wildlife  Club.  Rod and Gun Club:  The Rod and Gun Club's  attendance at thc general  meetings is down so, like the  Wildlife Club, they're looking  for ways lo make them more  interesting for the members.  In the latest newsletter,  this question is asked of the  members. Here's a chance  for those who have had good  ideas on what they want or  expect from the club to have  their opinions heard. The  next meeting is on November  9; at this, the R.C.M.P. will  bc giving a presentation on  gun legislation. For thc  month of November there is  an amnesty on unregistered  weapons so, if you want more  info, this is the meeting to  attend. Tickets for the banquet next month are now  being made available, call  Bill Boyte at 886-7842.  Madeira Park Wildlife  Meeting:  There will be a meeting  with representation from thc  B.C.Wildlife Federation,  at the Madeira Park School  on Sunday, November 12.  This is to be the meeting  which will organize a local  club with B.C.Wildlife affiliations. The initial project will  be donated by Wilf Harbour,  as a park, in memory of John  Daly.    All    are    welcome.  If you have anything of  interest, give mc a call at  886-7817 or 886-2633,ta.  sented by Ed Broadbent.  Canadians are accustomed  to thinking of the N.D.P. as  Canada's small third party,  a party confined to a few  regions and representing  only a small proportion of  the voters. So it comes as  something of a shock to realize that outside North America Social Democratic parties  represent the broad middle-of-  the-road, in some cases even  thc political "establishment".  Thc delegates at the conference arc not the protesters  of old, but rather respectable-looking politicians who  are comfortable in the downtown hotels and conversant  in the intricacies of trade  balances and social welfare  programmes. One could  almost say they are a little  boring, a little too respectable to be the believable heirs  of a crusty old revolutionary  like Karl Marx.  But this may be deceptive.  The Socialist International  is gradually shucking its  traditional Scandinavian  and European orientation and  beginning to reflect the con-  of technology, help in establishing modern education  systems anil medical clinics.  The tensions within thc conference seem lo concentrate  on the differing perspectives of the European-oriented  parties and the developing  country's needs. While they  all share a common general  purpose, and the discussions  seem free of a lot of sectarian rhetoric, there is evidence of some distinctions.  Partly this may he due to  the differences in context.  It is one thing to represent a  ruling parly in a safe, relatively placid welfare state like  Norway where the Social  Democrats have a hold on  power, a balanced economic  system (lubricated by the  promise of North Sea oil),  and a secure, functioning  political democracy. It is  another thing altogether to  represent El Salvador, whose  delegate told the conference  that Social Democrats there  have "lived for the past  forty-five years under a  military dictatorship, the  oldest   in   Latin   America."  places like Algeria and El  Salvador speak sharply of the  need for a "new international  economic order" that will  allow thc impoverished countries of the world to obtain a  greater share of the world's  wealth. Equally important,  they want a new economic-  order to enable them to avoid  some   of  the   conflicts   and  that the older, richer. European parties promise to provide aid and assistance in  this endeavour. They want  pressure to change unequal  trade relations, thc transfer  Granny's Dinner  Slice and boil carrots, serve  surrounded with cooked,  frozen green peas.  Heal 2 tbsp. of oil in the  wok.

THRIFT SHOP  ��� 3 p.m. Thrift Shop, Gibsons United Church  tfn  David Leslie  .lite        " -  Barrister David Leslie,  Delphi Lands on North Road,  has filed his candidate's  papers to contest the Area  'F' seat on thc Regional  Board left vacant by Bernic  Mulligan's intention to withdraw. Leslie was born in  Aberdeen, Scotland, and has  been a resident of the Sunshine Coast for nine years.  "My reason for running  for the Regional Board,"  said Leslie, "is that I have had  some dealings with the Regional Board. I was astonished  at the power it has and the use  that is made of it."  "Being a lawyer, I've always had thc idea that one  had some rights. I did not feel  that my rights were being  well-represented nor that  the Regional Board was  being particularly responsive  to my concerns or the concerns of many others."  "It appeared to mc that  there were pronouncements  coming from on high and I  want to do something about  it. That's why I'm running."  "The Regional Board representative," said Leslie,  "should be a cipher of the  people he represents. It is  not his job to manage people.  I feel he should be honest  and forthright and say exactly,  as far as he knows, what is  happening."  As an example of the type  of attitude he opposes. Leslie said that hc was at a  Regional Board meeting and  heard a director say. "Wc  can decide what colour of  door handles you should  have." Leslie said hc was  astounded anyone could think  that way. "That sort of thinking is just too autocratic in  a democratically-elected body.

Fire protection - Pender unhappy  By Pender Harbour & District   according to local fire chief  Ratepayers Association   Barry Wilbec, be reliable in  fighting a major fire.  There has been a longstanding public demand in  the fender area for a water  system which would give the  school thc water it needs to  fight a fire.  Nevertheless, on October 26  the outgoing School Board  voted to proceed with the  alternative which will not  provide thc fire protection.  The      Anderson      Creek-  Publicity Committee  In considering means of  upgrading thc water supply  to the Pender Harbour Secondary School the School  Board has in recent months  been considering two alternate proposals.  One is a system which  would provide storage of  enough water to fight a major  fire at thc school such as the  fire which burned the school bascd svstem the Board  to the ground two years ago. optet| for .��� j,s |ast meeting  The other is a system which wi|| dr.m. water from a we||  would not provide any signifi- l0 bc dllJ, j��� lne gravc| beside  cant storage and would not,   tne crcc|( ���car the area where  Penderosa Grocery, Col. Flounders  & Barber Shop will be closed  November 6 to November 22  for Renovations and Holidays.  Thank you for your patronage  Laurie & Margy Munroe  the creek crosses Highway  101. Water for daily use will  be pumped some 1500 feet  to the school by an electric  pump stationed at thc well  end. It will be pumped  through six or eight inch  pipe but the pump's capacity  will not be sufficient to provide a fire How at the school.  For that purpose thc Fire  Department will have to splice  a pumper truck into the system at the well and force water  up to another truck stationed  at the school.  Fire Chief Barry Wilbec  is not satisfied with the  School Board's decision. Thc  need for a pumper truck at  the   well   "takes   a   major  ment what it needs. "With  that reservoir up the hill  we'd know we could hook  into it with both our trucks  and have all the water we  need," hc said. Thc letter  from David Nairnc and Associates, the engineering  firm employed by the School  Board to assess the two  systems, supports Wilbec's  contention.  "Based upon our visual  examination." the report  states, "wc agree...that the  (Kleindale Creek) valley has  reasonable potential for thc  construction of a dam...and a  reservoir with adequate inflow al the location proposed  would provide a dependable  piece  of equipment   out   of   supply of water for the school  CAMpbell's  FAMILY SHOES and LEATHER GOODS  NEXT TO BATHROOM ACCENT  IN THE   HEART OF SECHELT  Your friendly neighbourhood  drop-off point for Coast News  Classified Ads.  *&>  service, hc says, and  increases crucial preparation  time. In addition, hc expressed doubt that there  would bc enough water in  the well to make it worthwhile looking into.  "I have seen no figures  on the size of this well they  plan to make and I haven't  seen any proven replenishment figures for it. Thc  pumper we would use pumps  840 gallons per minute and  could very likely pump the  well dry in a matter of minutes. If that is thc case I  don't think we would bother  using thc well. We'd be better  off stringing hoses into the  small lake on the Klein property as wc did last time.  But this was hardly satisfactory."  Wilbce says the system  proposed for Klcindalc  Creek by the Area 'A' A.P.  C. would give the Fire Depart-  0* **?  Last call for Christmas  ��� Foam chips        ��� Foam cushion forms  ��� Lots of remnants available  with no need for pumping and  consequently, low operating  costs."  Thc reasons the engineers  recommended against thc  Kleindale Creek system were  (a) it would cost more, (b)  it involves risk, and (c)  it would take longer to complete.  The group of Pender Harbour residents who proposed  the Kleindale Creek system  reject these reasons.  "The reason we like Kleindale Creek in thc first place is  because it's so practical."  says Area 'A' A.P.C. member  Howard White. White says  the School Board's estimate  for dam construction ���  $98,000 - is "grossly inflated."  "This isn't thc Grand Coulee we're talking about,"  he says. "The ravine has a  very narrow throat and only  requires a small rock and  gravel plug to make a nice  small pond. The South Pender  Water District created a  vastly larger reservoir two  years ago with a fully engineered concrete dam that onlv  Variety  foofcg  DELI  .  and  HEALTH FOODS  We are not a  Supermarket but  our Health Food  prices are the  BEST IN TOWN!  w  !ni\'IM\UI!l.<tVV////IU'Jliir7A  Kodak, Agfa &  Fui' -A*u Film  SMILE WITH  WILLIAMS  /PHOTO FINISHING\  886-2936  ..Gibsons Harbour ooasi News, Novemoer /, ta/o  11.  fc  COAST NEWS   CLASSIFIED ADS  Classified Ad Policy  All listings 50' per line per week.  or use the Economical 3 for 2 rate  3 weeks for the price of 2  Minimum  $2.00  per  Insertion.
