Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation called with a list of In the meantime...not to worry!  questions which were presented to Council by Nel Jager, some of  which were as follows:  1. Why was approval given in 1977 which has led to the  ���..',..  present fiasco?  2. Why, even after percolation test problems appeared, was  approval given for two more lots?  3. Why were driveways allowed over drain fields?   '  4. Why were lots too. small for drain fields given approval?  Pretty tough for a group who is as deeply involved as this one to  answer questions for which they are looking for answers.  And so it goes.This worried but very patient group should be  complimented on the presentation of their problems and Nel  Jager for her role as spokesperson for the group. Her points were  clear and well made, supported by. pictures of the problem areas.  As each one told their story, there was no hysteria nor fiery  speeches. But a deep concern and frustration was clearly evident.  They have been very patient up to this point.  Village Council has also been very patient and as deeply  concerned for their citizens. They are in the unenviable position of  being between the Health Department!!, inaction in this case, the  developed problems, and the deplorable conditions*under which  some of their taxpayers must exist.  As Nel Jager stated after summing up their problems, "If  nothing is done, and soon, we are prepared to go much, much  higher up the political ladder for action!" There is no doubt in the  world that this is a very determined group and they know where  their next action lies.  Council has instructed Village Clerk Malcolm Shanks to set up  a meet with all parties involved. The decks are now cleared for  action and if a special meeting is required, so be it!  The 'bubble' is about to burst'! The next scene should bring on  "The Big Flush!"   .  Election update  Mayoralty candidate Bud Koch has dropped out of the race for  Mayor of Sechlet. Koch's candidacy was found to be invalid because  Ms name was not on the voters' list.  This leaves incumbent Mayor Harold Nelson and Merv Boucher,  in a head-to-head confrontation for the top spot on the Sechelt'  Council. In Gibsons, incumbent Mayor Lorne Blain Is still involved  in a three-way fight with Aldermen Lorraine Goddard and Jack  Marshall as he seeks a second term.

Government Wharf. He said  that the condition of the  crowding at the Government  Wharf was a matter of serious  concern to the Small Craft  Harbours Branch of the Department of Fisheries and  Oceans and that thc Branch  was reluctant to provide recreational moorage at the  Government Wharf because of  their responsibility to commercial vessels which. were  already enduring conditions of  tremendous crowding in the  present facilities.  Morrow made reference to a  feasibility study done by P Eby  and Associates of the Marina  project and underlined the fact  that Eby had been recommended to them by the Small  Crafts Harbours Branch. Thc  Federal Government would  provide, if the project were  approved, the cost of dredging  the Bay and building a floating  breakwater, which would a-  mount to approximately 50%  of the cost of the Marina.  Provincial help, which seemed  likely, could realize between  $600,000 and $900,000. Morrow said that the Village could  realize the monies by borrowing.

St Mary's is a hospital of  which every area resident and  hospital employee can be  proud. Its quality of patient  care is acknowledged by thc  fact that St. Mary's Hospital is  the recipient of a current three  year medical accreditation; an  accomplishment which only  23% of comparable hospitals in  Canada were able to achieve.  This is the result of a  concerned Board ol Trustees, a  competent and dedicated hospital health team.  The residents of the area may  res; assured that the administrative and policy procedures  developed over the years  provide the proper and acceptable employee standards arc  maintained to ensure a high  degree of quality and compassionate patient care.  Mr. G. Hall,  Chairman, Board of Trustees,  St. Mary's Hospital.  for the Gibsons Harbour.  Messrs. Amiel and Morrow  of the Marina Standing Committee devoted some time to  directly answering questions  raised and circulated by an  opposition group calling itself  thc Taxpayers for a Realistic  Approach to Progress.  In response to a statement  that tax money should be spent  on improving the Government  Wharf, the Committee pointed  out that Gibsons had worked  its way to the head ofa list for  Government help and if the  Marina referendum failed the  money available would not be  re-channelled to another Gibsons' project but would go to  another community.  Speaking from  the  floor,  Gibsons' resident Ian MacKenzie said that hc detected a  special interest group in opposition to the project and that  all who spoke against thc  project were waterfront residents on the Bay. "It is very  necessary that we have this  Marina," said MacKenzie. "Wc  give our children a ticket of  exile along with their graduation certificates. It should not  only be rich retirees who can  live here."  On behalf of commercial  fishermen, aldermanic candidate Diane Strom said that thc  commercial fishermen were  pleased with the work that the  Marina Committee has done.  "We want to get the Government Wharf back to being for  commercial fishermen."  In Gibsons  Cooper At Council  Airport Importance:  Reporting as Chairman of the Airport Committee, Alderman  Trainor pointed out that in time there will be a gold mine in  revenues for the two Villages to share as the airport use develops.  He added, "After attending a seminar in Nanaimo in the early  summer along with Alderman MacDonald of Sechelt, 1 have felt a  growing alarm over the great possibility of lawsuits the Villages  could face over the hazards that are there now. We need to take  steps to protect ourselves now; for example in the matter of  Highland Helicopter's stockpiling of the aviation fuel practically  on the runway. The hazards of this unfenced store of 45 gal drums  put there without so much as a by-your-leave Irom the helicopter  company, is a matter of the highest priority, I am convinced."  Alderman Trainor then referred to a letter from Sechelt Village  which said in part, "Alderman L. MacDonald noted that the  Village of Gibsons had placed a much higher priority on the  operation of the airport than has the Village of Sechelt. Ihe  Chairman of the Airport Committee felt the clerk was spending  sufficient time on airport matters and that if meVillage of Gibsons  felt there was some urgency concerning the airport that they allot  some of Mr. Copland's time to assist Mr. Shanks."  Sechelt has just begun its five yeartcrm of administration of the  airport by its clerk, the last five having been administered by  Gibsons' clerk. "We must get together and get our .views on the  airport clarified," said Mayor Blain, "and not get into a paper war  of letters. I will be seeing them this week wherj officials from  Victoria inspect the airport for further blacktopping needs," said  Trainor.  Cavalcade Damages:  The Village office continues to press the claim for damages in  the Cavalcade dynamite caper through its broker, Black, Gavin  and Company. The broker has requested Council not to make its  proposed appeal at this time to the Minister, Grace McCarthy,  until he can present the case again to I.C.B.C. The brokers letter to  I.C.B.C. concludes with, "The Village has not admitted any  liability to claimants who are now becoming irate."  About 20 property owners are claiming a total of $3,000. The  Village liability policy on which the claim for the broken windows  has been made has a $500 deductible clause. The Village has been  paying I.C.B.C. $19,034 each year in premiums since 1976 for its  total insurance coverage.  Oil Hazard:  Does thc Village use old crankcase oil on its gravelled roads?  The Ministry of Environment is asking this question of all  municipalities since research in Ontario and elsewhere shows  damage to surface water from such use as well as the possible  harm from carcinogenic substances in the used oil.  A plant is being built in North Vancouver, the letter states, to  re-refine used oils which will remove these harmful qualities. As  well, the letter continues, Highways is phasing out the use of used  oil on its gravel roads and at this time about half the gravel roads  under its jurisdiction are treated instead with calcium chloride or  ligno-sullbna.es.  National Unity:  The British Columbia Committee of the People to People  petition lor Canadian unity, reports in a letter to Council that 62  Councils in British Columbia, Gibsons included, have endorsed  thc petition, and that signatures across the nation arc past the hall  million mark and growing.  The petition aims to show the ordinary citizens of Quebec  province that lhc people in thc rest of Canada want them 10  remain as part ol Canada. Local Councils arc urged to help  >  History:  Some Gibsons history is now engraved on a metal plaque which  hangs in thc Council chambers. Names of elected officials  recorded there include Alcrman Fitchett's father and uncle, and  the names Adams, Mayor Blain's father-in-law.  Back in 1929 when lhc headman was called thc Chairman and  his committee, Commissioners, there was a George Cooper who  endured 14 years in office cither as Chairman or Commissioner.  Other names among many remembered ones are A.S. Trueman,  Principal of Elphinstone Secondary to 1956, and Al Ritchie who  lived and served many years in Gibsons.  And this Saturday, lhc 17th. each of us voters will be handed a  bundle of coloured ballots to mark. One for the Mayor, two  different ones for Aldermen, and of course, thc Marina  referendum.  35 years the most widely read Sunshine Coast newspaper!!  1 2.

Such a question  would appear to be the decision facing the  voters of Gibsons when they vote in the  referendum on the Marina proposal this  Saturday.  On the positive side, there is the report  from P. Eby and Associates, a firm highly  regarded by the Small Craft Harbours  Branch, which is emphatic in its findings  that the Marina would be both economically feasible and beneficial to the Harbour  area of the Village of Gibsons. That the  Harbour area stands in serious need of  some beneficial influence is obvious to all  and has been said here before.  Eby concludes that the Marina will  produce economic benefit without adding  in the slightest to the tax burden of the  municipality. That is a strong recommendation.  The opposition to the Marina comes, it  would seem largely from waterfront  property owners, in fact Eby expects that  waterfront values will increase should the  Marina go through.  Against the worries of the waterfront  owners, there is the crying need of the  commercial fishing fleet for more space for  the vessels. The Marina would remove the  present pleasure-commercial entanglement from the Government Wharf.  Whilst it is easy to sympathize with the  waterfront people, it does seem from this  vantage point that the Marina is a project  which we must say yes to. The Federal  Government and Provincial Government  monies available to the Village for this  project will not be soon or readily available  again should we fail to grasp this  opportunity. That the environmental  impact must be most closely monitored we  would strongly agree, but nonetheless we  simply cannot afford to turn our back on  this catalystic opportunity to re-vitalize the  Lower Village of Gibsons.  Hydro presses on  We read in our papers that the B. C.  Hydro propaganda barrage on Vancouver  Island on behalf of the Cheekye-Dunsmuir  power line is stepping up in pace.  Despite the belief of the B.C. Energy  Commission and the findings of the  Shaffer Report that the line was not  necessary, Hydro is determined to ram it  through.  They are apparently taking advertisements in the Island papers urging people to  do without hot baths and hot showers at  the peak hours of power usage. Without  showers and hot meals, if you please! No  word of encouraging economies on the  part of the pulp mills that get their  electricity at one third cost. No suggestion  that they might do more to provide more of  their own power from waste products.  The shock value of telling residents not  to wash nor to eat hot foods is very  considerable and leaves the residents of  the Sunshine Coast, who oppose the power  line, in the position of selfish ogres who  would sacrifice their neighbours well-being  rather than their own view.  The determination of the, power  corporation to ram through their grandi  ose schemes whatever the opposition is  virtually diabolical. Single-handedly and  without recourse to elected representatives  or the democratic process, B.C. Hydro has  apparently embarked on a policy of  continental energy. The^iave at the  present time applications in to supply  power to the North Western States on a  regular basis, the first time such applications have been entered.  With a neighbour as large as and as  wasteful of energy and voracious for more  as the United States, Canada would be  most well advised to study very cautiously  the concept of continental energy. We have  the energy, they have the appetite. It's a  strange sharing.  The question of whether we should  embark on these perilous waters should  not be decided by B.C. Hydro whose  mandate is to supply power in B.C. but if  Bill Bennett and his Socred government  cannot persuade a researcher involved in  the fake letters scandal to accept a  reprimand, what on earth are they going to  do with the all-powerful Bob Bonner and  his continental energy policy?  .from the files of the COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AQO  Hospital Administrator Mrs. Ellen E.  Bragg reports that St. Mary's Hospital  has received a three year hospital  accreditation for the first time in its  history.  The new Gibsons Cenotaph is  dedicated by the Reverend David  Brown to those who died in war.  Curling began in the new Sunshine  Coast Arena in Sechelt last week.  TEN YEARS AQO  An era came to an end In Port Mellon  when the laM of the stucco houses  which formed the Stucco Townsite  was bulldozed out of existence. The  new site of Port Mellon sits on the hill  above the town.  Alderman Morgan Thompson re- .  signs his aldermanic seat to oppose  incumbent   Sechelt   Mayor  William  Swain.  FIFTEEN YEARS AQO  Honorable Eric Martin, Minister of  Health and Hospital Insurance, will  officially open the new St. Mary's  Hospital in Sechelt on Sunday,  November 29.  What appears to be a young coyote  has been a frequent visitor at the  George Chapman farm on the Sunshine Coast Highway just past the S  turn. It shows up now and again and  plays7 with the goats and latterly has  been less wary of people.  TWENTY YEARS AQO  Thomas Hansen of Pender Harbour  narrowly escaped death when his gill���  netter listed on the grid at Art Duncan's  Marine Ways and burst into flames  when oil spilled and ignited.  The number of telephones on the  Sunshine Coast has reached 1,854 - a  far cry from the 80 telephones listed in  the 1947 telephone book.  TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AQO  Dr. R. Alan Swan has been named as  the second doctor for St. Mary's  Hospital In Pender Harbour.  Gus Mahon of Gibsons is putting the  finishing touches to the 45 foot ketch  Zlta which is gradually being completed in Gibsons Harbour.  B.C. Power Commission says that  the use of power on the Sunshine  Coast is increasing rapidly.  THIRTY YEARS AQO  Don Howell and Ed Lutz were  plucked from their half-submerged raft  which was drifting out to sea at Davis  Bay by Davis Bay resident Mr. Charles  Brookman.  Three fish boats and their owners  have been missing since a recent big  storm off the Sunshine Coast. Missing  are William Harris of Pender Harbour  and Red Hamilton and Jimmy Nelson.  Telegraph Creek. This was the head of navigation up the Stikine River.  The name originated from the Collins Overland Telegraph, which set  out to build a line from New York across North America and Asia to  business centres in Europe and Britain. Cutters were felling trees along  the right-of-way beyond Bering Strait when, in 1866, a cable was  successfully laid across the Atlantic, ending the transcontinental  project. In 1910, Eric Thomson accompanied his father, James, Fur  Manager for New Caledonia, on a tour of his territory north from Victoria  and along the Skeena and Stikine. Here, from the deck of a Bay vessel,  Eric's camera caught a group of residents at the post above a great pile  of baled furs awaiting shipment. Frederick Inglis, later the only  Sunshine Coast Physician and Surgeon, for many years was Telegraph  Creek's doctor at the time of the Thomson expedition. Photo courtesy  Eric Thomson collection. L.R. Peterson  ''^MfctfM*  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  For years I've known of the  phrase 'an educated fool', but  never till very recently did I  fully appreciate its meaning.  Friends, I am an educated fool,  there's no mistaking it, there's  no escaping it. With what  seems'like a'half a lifetime of  taking courses and passing  exams behind me I find myself  deficient of even the most  rudimentary knowledge of the  most crucially important aspects of life's struggle.  I am not talking here about a  devel'oped and determined  ineptitude with things mechanical. I am only too happy  to turn my car over to trained  mechanics. I rarely admit it,  but I did once perform the  function of operating room  nurse in a valve job operation  on an elderly Morris Oxford  which was my first car.  It was November in Montreal and the deed was done on  several bitterly cold nights  working in the out of doors. A  saintly neighbour toughed it  out with me and did all the  skilled work while I passed him  wrenches and went for hot  coffee. I think he was trying to  teach me and undoubtedly I  learned something about cars,  mainly that I never wanted to  work on one again and I never  have.  I have little shame in recounting this and no regrets. I  reason that everyone has areas  of ineptitude and am happy to  accept mechanical repairs as  one of mine. As Leo Larocquc  told me years ago in Montreal,  "All of us is ignorant, just about  different tings."  It is a different matter,  however, lo find oneself dangerously inept in thc matter of  providing oneself with shelter  or repairing and heating the  shelter that one has and it is in  this area that I have realized  that I am an educated fool.  When we moved into our  house in Roberts Creek I  decided that thc oil stove was  the first thing that must go. I  have not had pleasant experiences with oil stoves. They are  sooty and they smell. Being the  absent-minded sort, I have  more than once turned on the  oil and gone off and forgotten  to light it. Upside down in the  middle of an oil stove mopping  up a dangerous pool of excess  oil is not my idea of recreation,  in fact it's almost as bad as  messing about in thc insides of  automobiles.  Coupled with this antipathy  to matters oily, I have doubts  about the costs that oil might  reach and am not at all  convinced that there will be  certainty   in   the   future   of  regular availability what with  the chaos in Iran and the  tendencies of the multi-nationals, as evidenced last winter, to  leave Canadian customers  clutching the cow's tail whenever Americans need the oil  destined for Canada.  , On the other hand, I have a  real fondness for wood heating  which I developed in the Yukon  and in a three year spell in a  beach cabin in Roberts Creek  previously. I reckon that multinational corporations are a few  years yet from being in absolute  control of our wood supply and  somehow it makes me feel  much better to know that my  future warmth does not depend  on whatever dance of disorientation that Jimmy Carter, his  increasingly inept State Department, and the fanatic  Ayatollah Kohmenei get into in  the foreseeable future.  In addition to my questions  on the availability of oil as a  fuel there is also the question of  cost. A great debate rages in  Canada as to whether or not  Canadians should eventually  pay the world price for oil.  Ontario says no and Alberta  says yes and wants to boost the  price by $4 a barrel until they  catch up with the rest of the  world. What I wonder is where  are thc guarantees that the  world price is going to sit still  for the two or three years it will  take Canadian prices to catch  up? Thc Arabs boosted the  price by close to $10 a barrel  recently and said they would  review the situation in six more  months. Paying the world price  for oil is liable to gct harder and  harder with some nations  already paying $40 a barrel on  the oil black market as opposed  to the official $21-$23.  So my personal antipathy  and the lowering clouds of a  stormy oil future made mc opt  for wood. So far so good.  But thc summer's visitors  didn't stop coming until the  middle of September and after  that there was a halcyon period  of recuperation in the fine  warm weather this fall. It was  the middle of October before  the roof on the old and  neglected log house we bought  got repaired and the business of  acquiring the wood heater was  seriously addressed. It was  beginning to get cold and I  realized that the installation of  the wood stove was not a  matter of one day's frenetic  energy which is normally howl  operate when I can shake my  natural lethargic indolence.  After the serious business of  choosing the wood stove was  attended to I realized that I  would have to have a brick pad  and backing before I could  install it and further realized  that bricklayers are busy  people.  Coincidental^ thc struggle  to have the old chimneys  inspected and swept also took a  fair number of days.  Suddenly it was November  and the house was cold, cold,  cold. Desperation began to  attend my unskilled efforts to  co-ordinate and achieve an  adequate heating system.  Wood, the availability of,  became another factor overlooked and desperate measures  were again the order of the day.  Finally there was the brickwork and thc wood stove  wrestled into place and I  discovered that this late in the  season getting the right pipes  was also a problem. For days I  tried to get the right kind of  elbow while the wood stove sat  cooly indifferent to our sufferings with a gap where its  elbow ought to have been.  The first elbow had no  crimped end and had to be  returned. More were on their  way from Vancouver but the  truck missed the ferry and the  elbows didn't arrive and it was  another night in the middle of  November with only the fireplace and an inadequate electric heater. Shades of a frigid  Scottish boyhood!  When the truck arrived there  were no elbows of the requisite  size. Despair again! Finally in  Sechelt I tracked down an  c(bow that seemed to fill the bill  and raced eagerly home with it.  There were only three pieces of  pipe involved and surely nothing could go wrong. Wait a  minute! One of them had to be  cut. Another cold nighl. Thc  pipe was cut and one of the  ends of thc elbow insisted that  it would not fit with thc pipe on  the stove.  By this stage I was foaming  at thc mouth with frustration  and rage and a feeling of  general ineptitude. Just before  total insanity struck, in came  cheerful, lovely June Hope  from Nelson Island and with  typical cheerful competence  produced tinsnips, which I had  never heard of, slit the sides of  the pipe, inserted it, and within  minutes the valiant woodstove  began to etch a place in my  heart and smoke, at last,  billowed from my chimney.  None of the courses I ever  took had prepared me for the  trauma of warming my shelter  with the basty onslaught of  winter and I realized that I had  a lot of learning to do. The lot  of an educated fool is not an  easy one.  This being about the right  time of year, I think maybe I  should tell my hunting story.  Those of you who are avid  Burnside readers will remember his epic adventure with the  Iron Creek Cavalry. My hunting story pales into insignificance beside that yarn but it  contains just enough damn  foolery to make it worth the  telling.  My friend Gordon and I had  never been hunting before. We  were about 22 or 23 years old  and we'd heard enough macho  hunting tales to want to make it  a part of our experience. As far  as we were concerned, you got a  couple of guns, a bottle of  brandy for the cold weather, a  good pair of boots and then  you went out into the woods  and blasted away.  We borrowed a couple of  weapons; mine looked like  something John Wayne may  have used to blow away two or  three tribes in any one of a  dozen movies; Gordon's  looked like something a World  War I sniper would feel comfortable with. We threw our  gear in the back of the car one  November Friday evening and  headed for the hills. We  decided that we had better  hunt somewhere where no one  else was likely to be, so we  drove to Vernon, took off up a  back road, took a right off onto  a secondary road, and finally  arrived at a place where no  person had appeared to have  been in at least five years. From  there we hiked some five miles  back into thc bush until we  stumbled across a lake that we  were pretty sure had never been  viewed by a white man before.  We bivouacked ourselves on a  bit of a rise at one end of the  lake and having determined  that we had enfiladed the area  against any form of four footed  invader, we set about insulating  ourselves against the cold with  the aforementioned brandy.  After about three hours of  silent, if sedentary, stalking we  concluded that if the prey were  not going to come to us we  would have to pursue the prey.  We weren't quite sure what we  were looking for but we  planned on blasting anything  on four feet that had a lot of  horns. Since this appeared to be  the kind of lake that a large  creature would enjoy surveying, we decided to make our  way around its edge where the  likelihood of stumbling upon  the unsuspecting quadruped  would be great.  About three quarters of the  way around the lake we came  across a clump of bush, and as  we made our way around this  interuption, a dark figure  loomed in the midst of the  brush. The thickness of the  vegetation obscured our vision  but the general configuration  suggested a living beast of  substantial magnitude. We  immediately devised a clever  plan to thwart the victim's  retreat���we would surround it.  I remained stationary while  Gordon skulked around to the  opposite side of the bushy  grove. There he was, 180  degrees from me on the other  side of the clump; between us  the cornered prey.  I slowly raised the weapon to  my shoulder, an old, but  apparently serviceable Winchester which I had never  operated. In fact the only  instructions given me were that  it was "sort of like a .22 only  Please rum to page three  The Motive For Metaphor  You Ilk* It under the tree* In autumn,  Beceuse everything I* hell deed.

Letters to the Editor  Marii  Editor:  I learned from my family  that the people of Gibsons  will be going to the polls to vote  on Saturday, November 17 to  give support or otherwise to the  proposed new Marina, I can't  be there so I take this opportunity to express my support  and appeal to those who share  my view to be sure to get out  and vote.  The subject has been discussed and debated for more  than ten years and each year the  old Wharf gets more decrepit  and each year the costs go up.  We have a situation being  offered by senior governments  where we can get "gift" finances  of $ 1.2 million and only have to  put up $300 thousand to get a  new Marina. This is no more  money than we as a family  enterprise borrowed and spent  oh our store facilities in 1974.  We did it because of growth  pressures around us and the  community must do it in the  Bay for the same reasons.  The arguments that the  Marina will only benefit a few  merchants in Lower Gibsons is  to assume that successful  commerce does not provide  many community benefits.  The payroll of our business  will this year approach $240  thousand, add to that the taxes,  the utilities and other cost  factors and you have a very  substantial contribution to the  'good and benefit of the community in which we do business. This money does not all  come from the people who live  here. A large proportion comes  from boat people, tug boats,  fish boats, from the nearby  Island residents, etc, etc. Many  of these people have a great  deal of trouble getting in to  park their boats. Many of our  own citizens don't leave their  boats in the water for want of  adequate space.  Slings and arrows(cont'd)  louder". The next half second car and the city,  grew into an eternity.

I frankly visualize a lot of  Vancouver people arranging  permanent berths here and they  will spend a good deal of  money. The argument that  boat people don't spend in this  community is sheer nonsense.  We rely on them, we service  them and we know better.  Further more, a large part of  our local fishing fleet can't even  tie up here. They stay elsewhere at present. A good size  fishing fleet berthed here can  not help but aid our economy.  We have had ten or more  years in which much money has  been spent to examine the  alternatives. We need to act  now. The spinoff benefits can  be quite substantial. Quite  frankly, the way our community is growing and considering  the fact that we have such a  large body of protected waters  with good fishing, I predict the  Marina will be over subscribed  in a few short years.  Let's do it, and DO JT NOW.  It won't happen if you don't let  your Council know you want it.  Bill Edney.

Sun and  ' Fishl!  We have to have a Marina so  we can have more commercial  boats at the Wharf. Let's keep  our fishing Village atmosphere.  We have to have a Marina  well run with public facilities.  This is the only way to clean up  the Bay. Do you realize that  people living in the Bay area  actually clean up human excretions on their property?  We have one of the best  fishing grounds between the  Gap and Gower Point so the  majority will be in our area  anyway. Let's take advantage  of our natural resources and  sell our products as we are all  bound to gain by it.  Say yes to something that is  coming; vote for our Marina.  Yours truly,  Anne Gurney.  Bay beauty?  Editor:  In answer to some points in  last week's letters re the Marina.  Has anyone ever really  looked at Gibsons' "beautiful  bay"? A Government Wharf  jammed with boats and cars  with a run down float tacked on  one end. A falling apart  breakwater and a hodge podge  of so-called marinas, some with  sinking floats, sunk floats,  dangerous floats, poor access  and no room. Now look at a  marina like Fishermans Cove,  clean, tidy and beautiful. There  is much that can be done to  beautify the bay in Gibsons and  a marina, properly planned and  constructed, would certainly  help. As far as expanding what  is already there; you couldn't  add to the mess without  removing the present unsight-  lies and by adding to the parts  in good condition; wouldn't  you be creating another marina,  anyway?

We had  lew material possessions but we  had the property and perhaps a  greater independence than we  would ever know again.  Thc land was no great  prize���60 acres of scrubby,  second growth hemlock with a  peppering of fir piling and  cedar. My mother's second  husband had picked it up for a  song during the Depression.  Stump Hollow lay at the  bottom corner of the half  section and there we lived in the  early fifties, my mother, my  youngest brother and myself.  We had no electricity and a  primitive waterline that was  forever springing leak.. My  middle brother, Chris, and I  had originally planned to log  the property but had been  advised against this because of  low lumber prices and the  diseased condition of much of  the hemlock. Chris had since  urried and left the area.

My  brother Martin still went to  school but caught trout in the  nearby streams to help out.  Luckily we had few overheads  beyond basic groceries and fuel  for the lamps. 1 had for a time  worked at the pulp mill but had  lost this job along with eight  other drinking buddies after a  somewhat apocalyptic bunkhouse party. As far as jobs  went, it was no great loss but it  did rob me of acertaih security.  1 consoled myself with thc  thought that at least I didn't  have to punch a time clock or  work those mind-numbing  night shifts anymore. And I  drifted into the shake business.  Jake Horatski, my initiator,  was a second generation Pole  with a fierce black moustache  and a mind like a cash register.  Prior to his coming, there had  been no commercial shakecut-  ting around those parts. Once  in awhile, someone might hack  up a log to shake his roof. No  one ever thought of doing it for  money. But Jake was a cedar  hustler from the country a-  round Mission where they'd  been doing it for bucks for  quite awhile. He hit town with a  red haired mistress called  Freda and a couple of weather-  beaten old characters he must  have shanghaied from a skidroad bar. They set up shop in a  disused bunkhouse on the  opposite side of the mill and  commenced to practice their  trade.  Things were pretty tight for  us at the time. I'd walked off on  a particularly unreasonable  hooktender shortly before,  which gave me some momentary satisfaction but effectively  delayed my pogey for six  weeks. It was too late in the  year to hire out again and I was  blacklisted at the mill. Someone introduced me to Jake at  the local pub. He was looking  for another man so I went to  work for him.  Work was the word for it.  Charlie and Albert, the two  grizzled drifters he employed,  were too wrungout and enfeebled to cope with anything  much heavier than splitting and  packing. Albert was a toothless, doddering character who  must have been around since  the ox-logging days and slick-  bald, cackling Charlie, while  not quite as far over the hill as  his partner, would sure as hell  never sec 65 again. That left the  rest of the labour to Jake and  myself. The bucking and block  splitting  were  no  particular  sweat  but  carrying out the  bundles and resaw blanks was  something else again. We were  cutting several hundred feet  back from the nearest access  road and the trail was uphill.  Jake stood about six-two in  his socks and was proportioned  to match. He was in his late  thirties and strong as a gin-mill  bouncer. He could shoulderthe  most waterlogged bundle or  stack of blanks with barely a  grunt and lug it as far as need be  like an empty packsack. He had  at least 40 pounds and over  three inches on me. I found it  rough going on the wet stuff.  Some of those bundles must  have weighed well over 100  pounds. I rejoiced when we hit  snag wood or windfalls that  hadn't been sucking up swamp  moisture for half a century. The  bundles seemed fcatherlight by  comparison and I could almost  run with them. But it was dank,  boggy   bottomland   and   we  mostly toted deadweight.  Fortunately, the oldtimers  were not exactly in the highball  category. It took them several  days to get a payload together.  In between, I split up blocks  with a sledgehammer and  wedge or spelled Jake off on the  bucking. I'd had little to do  with powersaws prior to this  and was afftrreltenstve of them.  ���arm  Those sharp teeth would chew  flesh gladly as wood. Jake had  a livid scar on his right leg as  proof. I went at it damn  gingerly at first. He owned two  saws���an antique IEL that  weighed at least 12S pounds  and a much lighter one-man  McCuUoch. The small saw  happily sufficed for all but the  most enormous logs. I soon  learned one of the cardinal  secrets of shake bucking���the  teeth have to be Filed evenly.  Sloppy Filing will cause the saw  to run off on an angle, producing worthless, slant-ended  blocks. My first attempts at  sharpening a chain resulted in  several such cockeyed blocks  and Jake's unconcealed displeasure. After that, whenever  possible, I left the filing up to  him.

Advice is to  expect the unexpected, especially on Wednesday.  Mars spends its last few days  in Leo before entering Virgo  where it will move back and  forth until July of next year.  Mercury, planet of communications, is now retrograding and responsible for any  slow downs affecting daily  routines. Mercury also squares  Mars next weekend warning us  to take care whilst travelling.  Babies born this week will be  strong willed, independent,  original and progressive. Those  arriving at the weekend will  possess sharp tongues. Sarcasm  and vindictiveness should be  discouraged at an early age.  ARIES (March 21 ��� April 19)  Close associate's financial  position is subject to sudden  change. It's your job to stabilize situation and speak out  against impulsive moves.  You'll be glad you did. At last,  social life, pleasures and pastimes begin to slow down.  Realize that many months of  hard work lie ahead. Contact  with clever person far away still  brings happiness.  TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)  Matters linked to marriage,  involvement or partnership are  subject to surprising mid-week  conditions. Other person's  desire to break free from  restrictions may necessitate  review of recent agreement.  Meanwhile, last chance to  complete domestic renovations  or projects. Increased social  activities are highlighted for  upcoming months. Getting  that loan is still easy.  GEMINI (May 21 - June 21)  Prepare for strange, midweek incident where you perform daily tasks. Routine toil  and drudgery may be interrupted by upstart who claims to  know all the answers. Don't  allow co-worker to jeopardize  hard earned position. Meanwhile, hectic short trips begin  to decrease. Venus message  says to be kinder to the one you  love most.  CANCER (June 22 - July 22)  Accent is on unusual social  activities. Mid-week outing  could be the start of another  strange association. Realize too  that work scene infatuation is  getting stronger. Can you  handle both? Looks like petty  financial problem may be  solved this weekend. Prepare  for an increase in local journeys  during the next few months.  Ignore child's eccentric behaviour.  LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22)  Where you live is scene of  unexpected happenings. Don't  plan to enjoy a quiet week at  home. Surprise visitors will  disrupt domestic routines. Last  chance to launch personal  project before energy planet  Mars prepares to leave your  sign. Remember that idealistic  romantic attachment can still  be formed this month.  VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)  Accent is on disruptive short  distance communications. Unusual request received by  phone or mail may necessitate  sudden journey or visit. Brother, sister or neighbour could  be source of commotion. Last  chance to check details of  private plan. Action planet  Mars enters your sign next  week so grab final opportunity  to rest and relax.  LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23)  Shocks and surprises will be  linked to personal possessions  or cash situation. Your money  could either double or be lost  without warning. Urge to  purchase unusual major item  should be controlled. Last  chance to direct energy into  scheme started last summer.  Spontaneous trip and visits are  still sources of contentment.  SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)  The Sun and Uranus together in your sign reinforce1  your need to break loose and  reach for freedom. Too bad  that others still find you  strange, eccentric and unwilling to compromise. They'll  understand you better in a few  years time. Meanwhile, refuse  to be squished. Continue to  assert your rights with those in  authority. Those born around  November 14 should prepare  for twelve months of sudden  change.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 -  Dec. 21)  Spotlight is on peculiar  happenings behind the scenes.  Looks like personal secret  you've been trying to hide faces  unexpected exposure. Those of  you anticipating peace and  quiet in secluded place should  keep last minute arrangements  confidential. Venus in your  sign still bestows charm, elegance and loveliness. Clothing  bought now proves best investment.  CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-  Jan. 19)  Accent is on unforeseen  changes to future goals.  Friend's surprising decision  forces reconsideration of your  own long range plans. You  realize that traditional hopes  and wishes no longer guarantee  lasting contentment. Meanwhile, be glad that arguments  concerning other people's  resources end soon. Secret  involvement becomes more  mysterious.  AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)  Prepare for unexpected shift  in status or local reputation.  You could either lose or  acquire position representing  stability and security. It's no  time to tell the boss where to  place customary ideas and  methods. Know that lingering  disagreement with close associate is soon resolved. Happiness is still found at regular  group gathering.  PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20)  Focus is on surprising incident far away. Long distance  message may request you take  quick trip to restore calm.  Meanwhile, your philosophical  ideas sound too unconventional to be accepted. College or  High School students enjoy  wildest week yet. Work scene  hassle ends soon. Remember  you're still number one with  those who hire and fire. Off the shelf  Juried Art Exhibition  Coast News, November 13,1979  by John Moore  Islands are like ships; they  exaggerate each member of the  crew's vices and virtues, eccentricities and downright  peculiarities, to superhuman  scale. The smaller the stage, the  larger the actors appear. While  this situation inevitably promotes a good deal of petty,  often irrational, bickering  usually encountered only within families, the squabbling on  the surface frequently masks a  deeper fundamental tolerance  and loyalty which emerges  when the whole group, or even  one member, is threatened by  forces from "outside" the  group. Writers from Homer to  Hemingway have made use of  the island's small stage to  intensify the dramatic element  in their stories, but few have  presented the life of the  islanders themselves with humour and insight which e-  merges from Jean Howarth's  Treasure Island. (Dorset Publishing Inc. 1979).  Treasure bland is episodic; it  has no single plot as such, since  the chapters are actually columns which appeared on the  editorial page of the Toronto  Globe and Mail, but there are  threads of continuity which  give the book a unity as natural  and eccentric as the life she  describes. The barely fictional  island of Madronna is supposed to exist, I take it from the  uncomplimentary references to  Toronto, as the nearest major  urban centre from which mixed  blessings flow, somewhere in  the Lakes, but it really makes  no difference. Madronna could  lie- off either Coast of the  country just as easily. Jean  Howarth spent some time  living on Saturna Island ih the  Gulf Islands and you won't be  able to get rid of the feeling  you've met many of her neighbours.  "What this country needs,"  Howarth says, "is a place to get  away from itself,"���or back  into itself���and Madronna is it.  Island society is dominated by  the likes of Captain O'Grady,  whose only tangible claim to  his rank is a square-rigged hat  stolen from a passing yacht. He  makes his living "beachcombing", (robbing log-booms),  appropriating anything that  isn't nailed down, and by  running a Still which produces  the island's supply of bootleg  gin. (To beat the cost of  mainland liquor. As well as  having no water or power  connection, Madronna has no  liquor store.) As the book  opens, two of the islands oldest  residents, Grandpa Cuthbert at  89 and Mildred Stonehenge, a  91 year old lady who digs  postholes for the new island  cemetary, (to beat the cost of  mainland funerals) with the  posthole digger she made  herself, who also pit-lamps deer  among her strawberries, are  engaged in a contest of wills,  both determined to outlive  each other and both equally  determined to have the honour  of being the first islander  interred in the new cemetery.  "It has, " Howarth remarks  drily, "left them both spending  much time hoping the other  will be lost at sea."  You'll also meet Charlie Jo,  a young Indian musician, who  lends the Madronna rockband,  (a collection of witches and  warlocks who glare balefully at  audiences while they perform a  variety of exotic acoustic  instruments which include  "grouse drums'���a percussion  creation which mimics the  "whoose" of the grouse���  20% on  Perennials  and  Spring Bulbs  1 week only  at  riant*  \  Cowrie St.  Sechelt  885-3818      Mon.-Sat,  invented by Silby, a reclusive  hippie furniture maker who is  so shy that he runs away into  the bush when visitors come to  his cabin, hides in the other  room at gatherings, and will  actually speak only to Charlie  Jo. Charlie Jo is also one of the  islands prime hustlers and a  precocious, wise man. He gets  government grants to build a  system of damned pools that  will improve Madronna's water  supply, then imports beavers to  do all the actual work. He and  Mr. Carpenter, the island's  postmaster, storekeeper and  only public servant, have  perfected the art of misunderstanding instructions from  mainland bureaucrats and  politicians in such a way that  roads and services are put  where they will be of most use  and least inconvenience to the  majority of the islanders. When  Silby's only companion, his  Malemute dog, has to be killed  for killing sheep, Charlie Jo  acquires two Malemute pups.  One he gives to Silby and one to  the author, whose household is  already strained by a menagerie  which includes a gourmet  racoon, two adopted cats, a  dog, an unhousetrained peacock who preens ceaselessly in  all the mirrors in the house and  a bad tempered macaw (a-  nother of Charlies contributions). Now, Charlie explains, if the dogs grow up and  one takes to killing sheep, no  one will be able to tell whose it  is. "Nobody.'he says, "would  kill your dog."  I'm not going to spoil any  more of Treasure bland by  repeating it. It's full of things  that are funny, sad and true and  Jean Howarth has a dry wit and  marvellously straightforward  style that makes reading her  like reading a good letter from  an old friend, All for now.  All By Myself by Pat Chamberlin was one of the  paintings that caught the eye of our reviewer at the  Sunshine Coast Arts Centre last week.  Contact improvisation  by Gillian Lowndes  This Friday at 8 p.m. at St.  Hilda's Hall, Sechelt, the  Sunshine Coast Arts Council is  sponsoring a performance of  contact improvision to be  followed by two workshops on  Saturday. To pre-register for  the workshop, call 885-5412  between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. It  will also be possible to register  on Saturday and fees will be  payable then.  Contact improvisation is a  recently developed movement  form. It is a duet in which the  participants, using weight and  gravity, momentum and stillness, assist each other to move  in free flow. Information is  exchanged through i moving  point of physical contact.  Since 1975, Peter Ryan has  been intensively involved in  dance and body alignment  techniques. Currently he teaches contact improvisation and  related movement forms in  Vancouver as well as performing independently and with  other dancers.  by Joan Hearts FoUtr  Many of us dwell protectively in our own tight little  circles and only through books  and art are we allowed to peek  at someone elses emotions. The  Juried Art Exhibition at the  Sunshine Coast Art Centre  provides us with the perfect  keyhole for such invasion.  Walking into tbe Art Centre  and looking at the work will  provide each viewer with a new  personal experience to add to  the sum of his or her own.  Almost everyone seeing this  show will have some response.  .."loved this..." "hated that..."  and that's as it should be.  "My goodness, I don't remember seeing that one..." or "I  must have walked right by  those two..." Ah...that is no  response at all and is much to  be (eared and dreaded by the  artist as is the most horrible of  all comments, "By now I have  seen that concept so many  times before and in so many  places that I am bored to death  with it." So I must approach  every art show with my own  particular zeal and my own  personal experience.  In this exhibition I fell in love  again; love at first sight again!  What a glorious feeling! I was  enchanted and drawn right into  a fresh and unassuming interior  composition by Matthew Har-  ley. Using pastels, with more  strength than is usually associated with them, Harley's  room is warm and inviting. His  mismatched Oriental carpets,  growing plants and paintings  make it all very personal and I  felt an invited gbest. Harley's  second offering Back Alley  seems to work just as well with  the feel of a hot summer back  lane with blazing sky and  grafiti. You are there. His  technique is open, unpretentious and refreshing. I hope we  will see much more of Matthew  Hurley.  All By Myself by Pat Chamberlin is a great study of a  sturdy little boy dragging on  the oars ofa boat that is too big  for him. In using a square  canvas for this painting and  very slightly off setting her,  composition, Chamberlin ha**  created a real pull pn thoseOars  and with her brush stroke  running counter, a great push  in the opposite. I just wanted to  give the whole thing a helpful  shove. I could feel the effort.  Again with Senja Boutilier's  large, haunting, misty-gray  painting of two night birds  busy in the pre-dawn frosty air,  the feeling is there that Senja is  glad they are singing and site is  sharing the gladness.  Robert Jack's old car wreck  is as effective in its winter  Crisis Energy  BSB  Did you ever face a crisis alone? That frightening moment  when you wondered where you would find the strength to go  on?  It's a common feeling. But it doesn't have to be so. We  weren't made to face crises alone. We need the strength and  support that comes from knowing that others are standing  with us.

We  often have the pleasure of  seeing his work in Raincoast  Chronicles and he is one of our  own.  Enid Goodman has a delightful knack of combining a  portrait with a landscape thus  escaping the Founders image of  portraiture and the 'pretty'  image of general landscape.  Again I felt myself relaxing  with her subjects Brace and  Tom and enjoying her splendid  use of colour.  Some of the exhibiting artists  are generous with their e-  motions and others are quite  cannily reticent as is Wanda  Best, whose white relief original prints are exquisitely  executed. The figure form is  curving and warm but the  overall effect is cold. Another  dichotomy.  On the other hand we have  King Anderson who refuses to  give anything at all. If he has  been affected by moon shots or  space it has only been to the  extent of providing a black mat  for a Sunday Sun and some tidy  clippings from Time or Life. Is  the black border his only  esoteric comment? He isn't  outrageous but he is neat.  Donna Shugar gives us a  negative or a negative-positive  (Solarized photo) Jody In Red  which I would love to see in red.  I guess it was red in the dark  room.  In the opposite corner Jan  Wade gives me far more than I  ever want to feel of (in the true  definition of the word), nightmare fantasies. I am unhappy  in the presence of agony and  her works dredged up thoughts  of a bubble bath in the county  morgue. Fangs, blood, Sadomasochism with a dash of  necrophilia. Shades of Jerome  Boschs' ISth Century Garden  Of Worldly Delights and macabre bits of Van Eykes' Hell  circa 1420. The quality of her  work demands reaction and in  that she succeeds but for me the  reaction was negative and I  hurried onto sunnier climes.  Veronica Plewman is a  skilled draughtsman and her  drawings of marble patterns  and a rose are perfect as is her  Pieces Of A Still Lire. Joan  Thompson Warn always has a  subtle and delightful touch  with flowers and her light  hearted figure dressing, Camisole, is mobile and summery.  Considering the size of this  exhibition it is the diversity of  media and the varied personalities of the participants that  have combined to make me so  long winded. Kay Cole has  some sturdy Newfoundland  shacks nicely composed on a  small canvas. R.P. Oldershaw,  Charles Murray, Peggy Conner  and Burrell Swartz are certainly worthy of mention and  the show is definitely worth a  visit. Oh yes, by the way...that  pink poet painting in there.

J    ��        The contents ol this brochure, outlining the programme, will be followed up bya  public meelii ���,. ,  NEED:  The local commercial vessel fleet is vital to the economic liability of the  community There is a steady increase in the number and size of commercial vessels  using the Federal Wharf facilities. This trend Is predicted to continue, and haa begun to  put pressure on the moorage available to local pleasure boat owners.  To relieve the congestion, the only acceptable solution is to provide a permanent  moorage marina for pleasure boats, leaving the wharf and floats for commercial ut*.  When fishing vessels are absent in Ihe summer, the vacant space would be used to  accommodate Iransieni boaters  The predicted level ol marine activity is expected to sustain in excess ol 300 jobs  afloet and ashore���about 100 more lhan at present.  To ensure lhal the Government Wharf facilities are adequate, an u  programme, paid tor in lull by Ihe Federal Government, is being negotiated. Thi* is  separate from Federal support lor Ihe marina.  SIZE:  It has been proven by Small Cult Harbours Branch���Fisheries and Oceana that, to  break even financially. Municipal marinas should provide spece for at least230 Male.  To allow lor a reasonable revenue margin, and luture expansion, provision has been  made to accommodate approximately 440 boats. The Village has already received  provisional epplications for 260 berths, in Ihe proposed marina, from local residents  end boat owners elsewhere  Allocation ol moorage will be lirsl lo residents ot Gibsons, then residents of the  Sunshine Coast, and finally boat owners Irom elsewhere. Provision ot moorage to  meet increased aemand will be phased to meet requirements, if this is economically  feasible  DESIGN AND SITE:  To comply with the policies and fiscal restraints established by tha Villagt Council  ind other government bodies, much thought and work has gone into the design ol Iht  ���narina and choice ut site The option accepted is the best possible solution, under tht  :ircumstances  Factors such as weather, environmental protection, strict pollution control, fiscal  economy, physical protection, curtailment of changes, protection ol privacy, provision  ot adequate parking and launching facilities, as well as conforming with the regulation!  ot every level of government, have influenced the design and site choice. As wtll. tht  availability of suitable land has had considerable bearing upon the choice.  The project has incorporated the suggestions of many knowledgeable local  residents, in an endeavour to provide a well protected harbour, to accommodate our  total marine activity as economically as possible.  ECONOMIC FEASIBILITY:  A thorough Economic Feasibility Study was undertaken by P.Eby and Associates  Ltd. (Professional Economists), using conservative growth and revenue information.  The results ol this study were summarized as follows:  "We heve concluded thai than It an immadtata natt) lor additional parmananl and  uanaUnt moorage et Gibsons, and Ihat tht propone 43* berth marine ft both  economically laaaibla and coat effective.

Copies ol Ihe complete study are obtainable Irom the Municipal Hall for a nominal  sum of M.50, or can bo reviewed by contacting the Gibsons end vicinity Chamber el  Commerce.  COST:  Exclusive of land purchased, the cost estimate is $1,060,000.00.  The Federal Government share, for breakwater and dredging, would be  approximately $830,000.00 or 50%. Substantial assistance Irom the Provincial  Government Is being negotiated. The Village share cannot exceed the current net  borrowing power, and is estimated to be $140,000.00 which will be repayable to the  Vlllege from the Marina revenues. Funding is spread over a three-year period. If Federal  or Provincial funding is not provided, the Marina will not be built.  EFFECT UPON TAXATION:  Government funding will ensure that there will be no increase in the local tax  burden. Revenues will be more than sufficient to meet operating expenses end  retirement of capital debt, es well as recovering the cost of land purchased.  WITHOUT GOVERNMENT  FUNDING THERE WILL  NOT BE A MARINA  OPERATING POLICY:  The operation and use of the proposed Marina will be strictly controlled. The  intended rules are included in this brochure.  The Marina, with its revenue, will belong solely to the residents of Gibsons, without  hindrance from outside sources. Council is considering alternate methods ot  manegement and operation In order to determine that which Is most financially  beneficial to Ihe Village.  BENEFIT TO THE COMMUNITY:  The Merina concept, and the Federal Wharf upgrading, will provide Gibsons wilh a  controllable, cost effective asset, which cen be ot benefit to ali resident-.. The total  package provides increased revenue locally, and much needed employment, year  round. II gives the commercial fleet a proper home port, yet accommodates the  transient boating population as well. It Is Nll-llquldating and not a tax burden, and its  surplus revenues, when reamed, can be put to good use right here.  II provides the local boating residents-epproxlmately 50% ol the population with  e first class facility without the spectre ol a large debt burden.  THE DECISION:  The referendum on this proposal was promised, and one there shall be. after a  public meeting is held.  II you agree with the concept, support it. II you have doubts or need more  information, answers will be provided at the public meeting.  We urge you to give this proposal your lull consideration, because:  THE FINAL DECISION IS THE  RESPONSIBILITY OF THE  RESIDENTS OF GIBSONS.  iJ^d  CONDENSATION OF INTENDED  RULES AND REGULATIONS  FOR PROPOSED  GIBSONS MUNICIPAL MARINA  i��0   vflW  Council requests your co-operation in helping to maintain a lirsl class marina  RULES:  1, All persons using any of the Municipal Marina's facilities do so at their own risk  2.

Why can't we just expand the present Wharf  |      facilities?  'j A. The Government Wharf can and will be upgraded, but  vehicle parking for the pleasure boat owners cannot  be made to conform to the by-laws. In the future the  present Wharf will give priority to the fishing and  commercial vessels, with pleasure boats at the end of  the/list.  2. Q. If/the Marina is such a good Idea, why is private  enterprise not interested?  A. Private enterprise does not have access to  Government GRANTS totalling a MINIMUM of $1:2  /million. The grants make it economically viable.  3. 0. What happens if the referendum is passed?  A. Everything is still contingent on the support of the  ; Federal and Provincial Governments, plus studies  j   such as the environmental impact study.  4 Q. What about dry land storage? . ,  A. The Committee does not recommend It, nor has it  made any allowances for it.  5. Q. Why is the Point Roberts Marina In financial  ,'     , difficulty?  A. It was built across the border but to serve Canadians  i   and this causes customs difficulties. Canadians  , ,L .br-t.ra-meq'-i'i DoiffH'en!"

Is there any conflict of Interest on the part of the  Marina Committee? "'���' "  A. Definitely no.  9. Q. How will rising fuel costs affect it?  A. With the increase in fuel costs, it would make  economic sense for a boat owner in the Lower  Mainland to have permanent moorage in Gibsons  and commute on the ferry by car instead of travelling  long distances by boat.  ��� The Federal Administrator of Small Craft Harbours stated that boat traffic in Howe Sound Is  constantly Increasing. **  e If this proposal Is turned down then the money Is not available for other projects In the   ������;  Community and we will go to the bottom of the list for any future consideration.  e We must support the commercial fleet and keep It In Qlbsons. To do so they need space at  the Government Wharf.  e We cannot afford to turn down free Government funds, amounting to $1,200,000 or more, to   .  help complete the Marina.

Certainly Ihe marina won't  fill up immediately, but fill it  will. Wc are close to a great  boating population in Vancouver and the North Shore.  People come for miles in their  boats, from Ihe inner harbour  and up the river just to fish.  With Iheir boats moored here,  they would come by ferry and il  would cosl them less than the  gas they burn coming those  many miles. Alter all, wc are  not Point Roberts, across the  border and stuck out in thc  Gulf, miles from nowhere.  Re thc energy crisis���no fuel,  less boats. Boaters use their  recreation vehicles a maximum  of 5-6 months, a minimum of 2  months. They zip from A to B  and then tie up or fish, The  cost of fuel is going up but the  number of hours a boat runs in  the 2-6 months of use is  minimal compared to the  amounts of fuel used by the  hundreds of wheel tvpe recreational vehicles one sees on  the roads today and these are  used all year round. As for Mr.  Plushbucks and his $30,000  sloop, how about the thousands   of  dollars   spent   on  Marina reply  Editor:  I would like to give reply to  the adamantly anti-Marina  letters published in your newspaper on November 6, 1979.  I would point out to the  general public that these concerned citizens are in fact  property owners who are  directly affected by the creation  of a Marina at their door step,  and as such one accepts their  concern for such things as  pollution control, environmental impact, taxes etc.  Doctor Cline; do you really  believe that a study which has  taken five years to bring to  referendum can possibly be  described as a "hastily conceived venture"?  It strikes me that the arguments presented in the letters to  the editor were based a great  deal more on emotion than  they were on a sound understanding of the facts as they  have been presented to the  public.  Using the Marina Committee's figure of a cost to the  Village of $39,000 per annum  to service the debt and maintain the facility, the cost, to all  1700 registered voters, even if  the project is so hopelessly  unsuccessful that not one boat  makes use of it, is, by simple  arithmatic, approximately $35  per person per year���hardly  what one would call a dangerous gamble.  It has been expressed that  430 heads all flushing in  harmony would create a horrible pollution problem. As this  writer understands it there will  be washroom and shower  facilities provided, as well as  pumping stations for holding  tanks. As there are no provisions made for "live aboards",  and only small provision for  over-nighters, it would seem  that this is a somewhat backwards attitude. Thc pollution  problem that now exists is due  mainly to the lack of washroom  facilities in thc existing government Wharf which forces  boaters to use their own  facilities against their better  judgement. For confirmation  you   need   only  witness  the  todays recreational vehicles  where they not only carry their  televisions, but their boats as  well. How many of these  recreational vehicle owners  have built their mobile home  from scratch as many boat  owners have. Many of us have  penny pinched for years in  order to build our $20,000-  $30,000 sloop and friend, the  wind is free even if the diesel  isn't and a little of that goes a  long way. We are a wealthy  country and despite high fuel  costs, our wages are such that  we still can afford cars, recreational vehicles and boats,  and some people, the works.  We own a boat, a small car  and do not have a summer  cottage. The boat wc built, all  of it. Thc house wc built, all of  it, We arc NOT the Plushbucks  and we don't own a colour  television. Wc do nol use up thc  world's resources but we would  like a place to tie up our one  pleasure.  We appreciate the concern of  the 1700 Gibsons property  owners and we would like to  share in the vote as well as the  taxes if there should be any but  that is out of our hands.  Perhaps the time is coming  when a larger municipality is  the answer in order to broaden  the tax base for some of these  improvements. I certainly  don't know all the answers.  Let's keep an open mind and  listen to both sides.  Gloria Fyles.  distressed faces of overnight  visitors discovering that the  facilities in Pioneer Park are  not functional.  As far as environmental  impact goes, I have been  assured (because I too asked all  these questions) that if the  agency undertaking the necessary, and I emphasize necessary, study, finds that this  project is not viable for environmental reasons, the.n it's  back to the drawing boards to  FIND A SOLUTION TO THE  PROBLEM.  That, after all, is the central  issue. Yes there are problems in  the development of a project  this big, but the answer is not to  bury ones head in the sand or  scream NO at the top of ones  lungs. The answer is to take the  problems and find solutions. I  myself do not feel that all the  avenues have been fully explored and that there are other  possible solutions to the problems of parking, noise control  etc.  It is partly for this reason  that I have chosen to run for  office as Alderman in the forth  coming election, and I further  suggest that the authors of the  letters at which this rebuttal is  directed should feel free to  discuss the problem of a  Marina being built on their  door step with me, so that we  can maybe reach some sensible  solutions to those problems.  Last, but not least, I wish to  make comment on the leaflet  recently distributed throughout Gibsons, showing an empty  Point Roberts Marina complete with despondent operator in bedroom slippers. I  commend the authors of said  leaflet for being brave enough  to attempt the famous Hitler  technique of the Big Lie.  You, whoever you are,  should be ashamed of yourselves for printing an out dated  and irrelevant piece of foolishness such as this which any  observer is free to go to Point  Roberts and investigate for  himself or herself.  Respectfully yours,  T. Karkabe.  Editor:  To the concerned people of  Gibsons regarding the proposed Marina in Gibsons  Harbour, I have been in the  towboat business in Howe  Sound for the past 13 years. I  lived in Gibsons up until this  year when I moved to Langdale.  After reading the letters in  this paper as well as going to  the public meeting November  8,1979 in Gibsons, I would like  to make a few comments as well  as state a few facts.  1. The Marina in question is  needed. You will never see  fewer pleasure craft around,  you will only see more.  People these past few years  have taken to the water  more and more with the high  cost of travel on land plus  thc money normally spent  on land travel they can use  for boating plus have money  left over and be more  relaxed after a few days than  travelling to some distant  place on land.  2. Pleasure and commercial  boats don't mix. Few pleasure craft can stand having a  commercial boat tied alongside. Not only because the  commercial boat is a lot  heavier constructed but you  can't find anything to tie to  on a pleasure boat. The  cleats on pleasure boats are  too small or so weak they  would only break or pull out  of the deck. For a commercial boat to work his way  past a pleasure boat at the  Government dock is like  trying to get past fresh eggs  tied to the float, one little  scrape and the egg breaks.  3. For every 40 feet of space  used at the dock by pleasure  craft you lose the potential  of four or more people  employed by the two or  more commercial boats that  could use the space. With  employment one of the top  concerns on the Sunshine  Coast, this has to be considered. Myself, I have had  one tug built on the Sunshine Coast by local labour  alaVakalfalte-quarters of the  work on my second tug is  being done by local labour.  This weans more business  for local people as well as  more employment. Some  fishermen are in the process  of having new and larger  boats built plus other fishermen want to move here thus  creating more employment.  4. When some people start  talking about enlarging the  present facilities to make  room for the pleasure craft  one has to wonder* where  they are going to find room  to park their cars and trucks.  They now leave them on the  dock etc. for days at a time.  Commercial boat men can  work most of this problem  out with the help of Village  Council and Federal officials.  5. Some are saying that pollution will increase. With the  Marina you will have better  control and the Federal  Government is drawing up  laws regarding holding  tanks on all vessels, commercial and pleasure.  6. Some are worried about the  cost. Being in business it is a  small cost considering the  value of the asset when  finished. Some say that 1700  Gibson residents will have  to foot the bill by way of  taxes if they can't rent out all  the space. With the amount  of letters etc. received by the  Marina Committee so far I  would say within one year of  completion it would be close  to being full. With the added  space created by moving  pleasure craft from the  present Government dock  plus being expanded by the  Government, the added  revenue from moorage,  employment and money  spent within the community  would offset any future  unforeseen costs.  7. To the people that are  making all the statements in  the paper against the Marina, just one question I  want to ask. "Where in hell  have you been this past year  or so when the members of  Council, the Marina Committee and commercial vessel owners have been working on this much needed  solution to the problems  faced within the Harbour  and Lower Gibsons?*  In closing I would like to  compliment Mr. David Hunter  who did such a wonderful job  as Chairman at the public  meeting. To give each person  an equal chance to voice his or  her views and still keep the  meeting orderly was a job well  done.  Tom Penfold,  Gibsons Commercial Vessel  Owners Association &  Director of Independent  Towboat Owners of B.C.  wwiiam  ^  HAPPV 00th  BIRTHDAY!

I had to sell my lovely  boat when I moved to Gibsons  because there was not moorage  available and I am one who  does not find it enjoyable  spending hours driving great  distances to my boat or a place  where I can moor it.  One letter from Mr. Walt  McGown really hit home.  Although he prefers to compare apples to oranges let me  correct some of his statements.  Captains Cove Marina is one  I know exceptionally well.  Financial problems with the  owner caused it to go broke a  few years back. The owners  problems were with other  investments and not the Marina. He also suffered from  extremely poor management.  Since the new ownet tcok it  over s'dmejhree or fourroirs  a|jo ���'if"Tias""'titen "8':'mSjS  proposition experiencing less  than 10% vacancy ��and ii a  viable financial success in spite  of its poor location.  Reeds Point is one which is a  great distance from the. majority of boat owners. Time  driving to the Marina at the top  of Indian Arm and the l'/i  hours cruising required to get  out of the Arm is expensive and  time consuming. Although it is  filling slowly it was too ambitious for the appeal and needs  of boaters.  Both these Marinas above  require hours of cruising to  reach the open waters of the  Georgia Strait. Those hours  mean gallons and gallons  before you're even under way.  This doesn't make sense.  Now let's deal with another  Marina I have visited. The  Poulsbo Marina in Washington. A beautiful new facility  which would be a very close  comparison for Gibsons with  Vancouver so near. Seattle  people use ihis facility the same  as Vancouver people would use  Gibson's planned Marina.

I vow that I will keep my  doors and phone open to the public, will be fair and  unbiased in my decisions.  1 would like to see the Regional Board own their own  property and building with lots of room for expansion,  with or without the Village of Sechelt or the School  Board. I can see big changes coming to the Regional  Board, maybe a Municipal District or incorporated into  the existing Villages.  I also make some promises that I will not do if  elected.  / promise nol to attempt to have the Press banned  from Regional Board meetings.  I promise not to harass fhe Chairman.

Yours truly,  G. Puckett.  Fisherman unconvinced  PjRor:  ^Questions to the Marina  Cdimmittee on a project of  $(26 million:  ;!tVhy was the general public  o��ly given one hour to voice  qtjtstions and/or opinions as  to: the validity of the said  project?  Why wasn't a proper public  irwiiry called with residents  allowed to present briefs  (vtJiether opposed or in agree-  nAt)?  fe Marina Committee has  that the Municipality can  borrow $130,000. From  used by the Committee  I Municipality's share will be  over $130,000 even after  (leral and Provincial grants,  tre will the extra money  jje from?  appears to me that the  |ble expenditure of the new  rina and  replacement of  lent breakwater and adding  additional floats and dred-  present facilities, would  bably approach or surpass  expenditure needed to put a  | Marina east of the existing  Brf.  Would it not make  ���te sense to establish the  ifina in the business com-  hity, rather than the resi-  tatial area?  "rhave heard no guarantees  tl|M the zoning in the Bay area  vvjB; remain residential. The  btoiness community of Lower  Gibsons has no guarantees that  litUire Councils will not allow  cc mmercial enterprise to esta-  b ish business in the Bay area.  ;ln fact I believe the Marina  Committee is touting that a  Ian? number of permanent  ���jabs will be created by the  lvjfi(ina. What will these jobs be  afld where will they be? Is it  pplsible they may be in the Bay  afjja which is zoned residential at present?  Vision to be  Mot:  .'���The members of the Arbutus  Vifcht Club would like to take  tbkf opportunity to thank the  members of the Marina Committee for their cogent presentation of a very detailed  rtejort. The efforts expended to  insure that all facets of the  proposal were investigated and  that all safeguards will be  provided were worthy of everyone's appreciation.  Whereas the present boat  dry-dock facilities are well run  and a compliment to this  community, vessel owners have  had to wait relatively long  periods of time to use these  facilities, myself included. The  support industries needed to  sustain a Marina of this size,  including a supposed 50%  increase in docking space at the  present wharf, are not here at  present, and even with upgrading of present facilities, I  don't believe the vessels can be  adequately looked after. Where  will the new support facilities  be located?  In conclusion I feel that the  proposed Marina is being  pushed through without full  public disclosure. The commercial fleet has been promised  upgrading to present breakwater and Wharf. I find it  peculiar that cost expenditures  have always been available for  the different Marina projects  and yet I have not heard any  cost figures given for improvements to the present Wharf.  There are no guarantees for the  taxpayers of Gibsons.  Asa present commercial user  my vested interests would be  with a new Marina. (It's no fun  arriving in Gibsons Harbour in  the middle of the night and pot!  being able to And a safe place to  moor my vessel.)  My gut feeling of this  proposed Marina and lack of  safeguards is not good. I do not  believe we are in a do or die  situation. From information  given at the public meeting the  present facilities are to be  increased by 50%. This would  give us a breathing space in  which to approach the Marina  question with rationality and  greater public participation  allowed.  Thank you.  Robert J. Corlett.  llty  / believe  elected  officials  should  follow the  wishes of  the majority.  Because that's what elected official means.  Elected in order to represent.

After tl.c lirsl two weeks of
league action, high stores and
plcntj offast scoring action has
been evident. Even with scores
getting into double figures in
some cases, goaltcnding has
been outstanding in many of
thc flunk's.
Game Summitry!
Coi) Court II vs Gibson 2
the  season opener.
lu
_______ <he
Coz) Courl Bruins dominated
a short-handed Gibson club
from the opening. Taking a 6-0
lead in i hc li rst period, it was all
liniiiis Imz/ing around Lawrence Hurley, who despite the
score played very well. The
Cozy Court attack was led by
Kelly Bodnarek with the hat-
trick.
The (.'reek 9 is Anderson A's 3
Il was all Roberts Creek in
Iheir league opener as they
jumped out in from by 8-0
before the A\ struck back with
three goals. Ihree players
scored two goals each for the
Creek; Bob Blake, Terry Ger
maine and Sean Van Streppin,
leading the way, while Dale
Brackett scored a pair for the
A's.
Cozy Court 8 vs Crowns 4
In probably the best game of
the young season, it was the
high scoring Bruins being
turned away time and again by
goaltender Art Chemas, who
played spectacularly in the
Crowns net. With the score 5-4
for the Bruins with just five
minutes remaining and the
Crowns applying the pressure,
Ricky August scored on a point
shot to clinch the game which
could have gone either way. Stu
Orpen scored two goals as did
August for Cozy Court.
The Creek S vs Gibsons 3
In their first meeting in
league play, it was the Creek
with solid netminding from
Darcey Blake and brother Bob
on the blueline, adding a goal
to keep the Creek undefeated.
Cozy Court 9 vs Anderson A's 6
It was the young Anderson
A's getting super goaltending
from juvenile Greg Mottishaw
which almost saw the first upset
of the young season. After
falling behind 5-2 to the Bruins,
the young but aggressive A's
kept working and it paid off in
four hard earned goals. The A's
going ahead 6-5 at one stage in
the third on some fine play by
Rory Walker, quickly saw the
lead slip away as the Bruins
struck for four unanswered
goals in a three minute span to
preserve the win. Ivan Dixon
and Dave Lamb led the way
with a pair of goals each.
Crowns 9 vs Gibsons 7
A four goal nighl by Rich
Lon preserved a win for the
Pender area team, with a late
goal by Billy Peters thwarting
the Gibsons comeback. After
falling behind early, Gibsons
rallied on goals by Nick
Bergnach, Robbie Williams
and a pair by Brent Lymer.
Cozy Court 12 vs Creek 1
In a game between the only
two undefeated teams in the
league, a short-handed Creek
team appeared confused and
disorganized, while the high-
scoring Bruins seemed to get all
the bounces. Dave Lamb with
four goals led the way for Cozy
Court, while Doug Kennedy
tallied the lone Creek goal.
Despite the score, excellent
goaltending by both goalten-
ders was evident.
The Sechelt Garden Club
closed its formal meetings
routine of 1979 at the November meeting. Routine is hardly
the word to use as all the
meetings are planned to be
informative and interesting.
This November session heard
the report of the nominating
committee and accepted its
recommendations.
The new President is Tam
Johnson of the Gibsons area;
Vice President is Colin Cole of
Roberts Creek; Treasurer is
Ola Arnold also of Roberts
Creek and Secretary is Lou
Wilson of Davis Bay. Directors
are Louis Hanson, Eva Gibson
and Jack McLeod. Committee
heads will be appointed by the
president.
Win Hornett, who is heading
the committee planning the
Club's Christmas Dinner and
Party December 5, made a
report on progress. She promised good food, good companionship and good fun.
The program at the meeting
was a presentation of floral
arrangements by members. A
call (or was it a challenge?) had
been made previously for the
men to enter the competition,
as well as the ladies, and close
to half the 25 entries were made
by male members. This Club
reporter expressed his intention
to put their names in print, but
threats of reprisals caused a
hasty change of plans!
Carmen Grassie pointed out
the good and not so good in
each arrangement, and the
attentive audience had much to
learn and admire.
Toymaking
The good old summertime of
this year has long gone, but
there is still much colour in
local gardens, and in the winter
months ahead there will be
more floral colour as there are
plants that bloom in the snow
and cold. A book on this topic,
Colour In Your Winter Garden, I '
written by a British Columbian, Robert Nicholson, pro-'
vides some interesting reading , i
and is well illustrated. It is
available at local book stores.

Homemade toys for preschoolers are often greatly
loved because they are made
with a particular child in mind.
Cuddly animals and dolls in
favourite colours can mean a
lot to a child and they are
relatively easy to make and
quite inexpensive compared to
sophisticated and bought toys.
Diana Netzlaw will be giving
two 4-hour workshops on
Toymaking this month. She will
show how to make an animal

Gold stars and congratulations to Pam Suveges, Carole
Skytte, Carol Skytte and Diane
Johnson. They not only won
FIRST prize in the "A'event of
the Squamish Ladies Open
Bonspiel, they have the honour
of being the FIRST Gibsons
rink to bring home the top
trophy. Top honours in the "B"
also came to the Sunshine
Coast by way of the Loretta
Lucas, Marg Maedel, Lydia
Hall and Elsie Hocknell rink
from Sechelt.
Saturday was quite a day for
the junior curlers at our club.
They hosted four Powell River
rinks for a meet which ended
with an excellent mini-spiel.
Powell River won both events
but they had to curl well to do
so. Our Krintilla rink took
second in the'A" and the yan
Velzen rink came second in"
the "B". With their enthusiasm
and some more practice there

886-7111 Joint Office debate  It's tough when your head  and your heart pull in opposite  directions and to make matters  worse, the logical plans fall  apart while your heart is wooed  with good deals. That's the  position the School Board has  been in and Thursday night  they called it "heads" by a vote  of 4-3, but everything hasn't  fallen in place yet.  Trustee Puchalski's motion  Jo accept the Village of Gibson's offer to lease land in  Holland Park on which to  anchor the portable office was  defeated; opposed by Trustees  Dombroski, Hodgins, Lloyd  and Van Egmond and supported by Douglas and Rottluff.  The position which won the  day was presented with great  sincerity by Trustee Lloyd who  had obviously given the matter  much thought and prepared the  following written statement: "I  can see no set of circumstances  under which I could conscientiously vote, for a permanent  location of thc Board office in  Gibsons.  "I realise that moving the  ^oard office to Sechelt is the  logical, reasonable action, and  that such action will undoubtedly work some hardships. I  think of our valued Trustee  from Bowen Island and the  extra burden on him���I think  of our present staff and the  dislocation of their lives. While  these are valid concerns, in the  larger picture they assume  their proper proportion.  "Our district is growing and  will continue to do so, and  geography says that 90% of  such growth will be basically  north of Gibsons���there isn't  any south! To locate permanently in Gibsons would be a  mistake now and as growth  went on that mistake would  loom larger every year.  "We recently pursued with  little result the Joint Facility  concept and dropped out, but I  was heartened to learn that the  idea of moving the Board office  to Sechelt has been simmering  for 12 long years. So what cause  to cry over another six months.  "However, I feel now as I felt  then that the Joint Facility  TrSlfes "v^"'f6W'S��serWhy��  provide separate services and  their attendant cost when one  set would serve the three  offices. The Regional Board  long ago realized the value ofa  location central to the area  served. The Joint Facility  concept is valid and wilt remain  valid. We as Trustees and as  taxpayers should make every  effort to see that the tax dollar  is spent for the purpose for  which it was raised���in our  case education.  "The motion under discussion would provide us with  10,800 sq. ft. of space (on  someone else's land) when we  need about 3,600 sq. ft. What  are we going to do with the  excess, besides absorb the costs  of heating, lighting and cleaning? Go into the rental business? If we are let's do it in  Sechelt where we have two  excellent tenants in dire need of  space. As our architect points  out, our useable space will cost  us some $60-$70 per sq. ft.  where we could build an  attractive new building for $45-  $50 per sq. ft., a saving of $60-  $65,000 and a better facility.  "A central office at Sechelt  will make it much easier for  staff and trustees to deal with  the Board office���and for  supervisory staff to cover the  area for which they are responsible. The School Board  action in expressing their  intention to opt out of the Joint  Facility may have been precipitate, but it has the desired  effect. Originally the site was  set, no argument���and then  suddenly the site was not  available and we were in a new  ball game. Now a new site has  been settled on by the Regional Board and Sechelt Council  and we are invited to join them.  I have inspected the site and am  impressed. The site not only  appears to be easy to develop,  but is centrally located to the  new highway by-pass, yet  overlooking the marsh it will be  a most pleasant situation which  will not be spoiled by future  construction.*  Trustee Hodgins admitted  the move to Sechelt would  cause hardship for his constituency of Bowen Island but felt  he must vote for what was best  for the whole district, not just  'fur his small area. Chairman  Douglas disagreed that the  property suggested by Sechelt  Council is accessible and said  that although the Joint Office  was a good idea he supported  the motion to accept Gibson's  offer because the Chatelech site  had proven unsatisfactory and  no other suitable site was  available in Sechelt.  A motion by Trustee Lloyd  to accept the offer of the Village  of Sechelt to join with them on  a site next to the Bird Sanctuary  didn't find a seconder.

According to a brief presented and distributed by his  wife at the urging of 'his many  admirers in Area C, Lee has  given 52 years to various forms  of public service, including two  years on the Regional Board.  "The people have spent  $5,000 a year for two years for  my expenses and continuing  education. It is now up to them  lo figure out if they have  received value for money. If so,  they can give me a 'yes' vote. A  'no' vote writes off $ 10,000 and  starts over with someone else.

Ni holson, no relation to the  Rcgi rial Board Chairman of  the s me name, is a 47 year old  nativ : of Cape Breton in Nova  Scotik who moved to British  Columbia in 1955 thence lo the  Sunshine Coast in 1964.  lid  and his wife Marjorie are  pare Is of five children.

At the present time he is  an executive member of the  Wilson Creek Community  Association.  Ed attributes his decision to  run in Area C to his desire to  give the electors a choice. "If  the people are happy with the  present incumbent," hc says,  "they will re-elect him. If not,  they will elect mc. It is as simple  as that."  Nicholson admits that hc  doesn't have thc experience of  the present incumbent but  points out that Director  Charles Lcc is 22 years his  senior. He stresses that his door  and his phone will be open to  the public and that he will be  fair and unbiased in his decisions.  Nicholson makes some promises about what he will not do  if elected. "I promise not to  attempt to have Ihe press  banned from Regional Board  meetings; I promise not io  harass the Chairman; I promise  not to threaten thc Board with  law suits; I promise not to  threaten individual Board  members with law suits; I  promise to try not to irritate  residents in other areas, also  not to threaten them wilh  recourse to law if they complain to lhc Regional Board."

(J^t^    holWoy  We have Airline Tickets  Immediate ticketing  Around the World  885-3265  1212 Cowrie St.   Sechelt  Fully experienced consultant travel agent  Jack Marshall  About two years ago, if you will recall, we had  quite an issue in Gibsons; "The Water Give Away".  The Council at that time was Larry Labonte  (Mayor), Lorraine Goddard, Ted Hume, Jim Metzler  and Stu Metcalfe. All but Stu Metcalfe were bound  and determined to give control of our water and  system over to the Regional Board. That brought a  strong action group together to fight to retain  control of our water.  Those who were in favour of the give away were  up for re-election but were soundly defeated. Now  we see two of that group coming forward again and  asking to be re-elected. There was only one on that  Council who stood up and fought against the give  away of our water and system and that was Stu  Metcalfe, and I am glad to see him running again for  another term.  The above situation is one of the main reasons for  my running for Mayor and would again ask for your  support.  The Government's new standards for North Road  structure (for their participation) made it financially  impossible for us to go ahead with this project this  year, but in 1980 we will have enough money lor our  share of the costs. The Government's new  standards doubled our costs. As for sidewalks, there  is a great need for them too, and next year we hope  to go ahead on a priority basis, so let us have your  views.  The Marina Committee has spent a lot of time and  energy on the project, and studies show the viability  of it and the need. However, the final choice is up to  you so Get Out And Vote.  As Alderman for the past two years, I was  Chairman of the Water and Sewer Committee and I  would like to be on the Council to see the  completion of the sewers on the bluff. We are just  waiting for final word from Victoria to go ahead.  With this in mind, I would ask you for your support  on November 17.  I have been Gibsons representative on the  Regional Board for the past two years and I feel  there has been better co-operation between the  Board and the Gibsons Council than in previous  years.  Get Out And Vote. If you need transportation call;  866-9628      886-2810        886-9970 Wildlife  corner  by Ian Corrance  Marina  The big question in Gibsons  right now is, what way is the  Marina referendum going to  go? Personally I think that it's  essential that it goes in. Only  the very short-sighted could  think that the facilities we have  at present are adequate for the  future. All you have to do is go  down to the Wharf and see two  of the biggest local boats, the  Ocean Pearl and the Twin J tied  outside, while small craft pack  the floats...  Like any sensible person, I'm  concerned about the spectre of  pollution so I guess it's up to us  to keep tabs on it, A friend of  mine came over from Victoria  this week. He, like others, has  the    sleepy    Ashing   village  concept of Gibsons and doesn't  want anything to change. If the  sleepy fishing village idea is so  ideal, what's he doing living in  Victoria? I remember an old  timer telling me about the first  pleasure boat with power. It  was an open clinker with a  Briggs and Stratton...At the  sight of it noses turned up,  progress had hit the Coast and  things were never going to be  the same again.  There are two ways to fight  against the Coney Island  approach to development. One  is to vote against everything  that looks like change regardless, and the second is to beat  the Coney Island developers to  the punch by doing things  ourselves and in our own way.  The former approach reminds  me of an ostrich, while the  latter at least faces up to reality.  Danger  The preceeding item does not  condone progress for progress'  sake. A good example of this is  the proposed chemical experimentation in Lei Lake; it smells  of scientific senility. Another is  the 500 acres in Britannia  Beach, bought by Dome Petroleum, presumably as a port  for shipping liquid natural gas.  I don't know enough about it to  be able to have any firm  feelings on it one way or  another, but I do think that  anything with the potential for  a one megaton explosion  should be looked at very  carefully. I spent the early part  of my boyhood in the middle of  the industrial belt in Scotland.  One of my early memories is of  me standing on the burn bank  and watching the clouds of  black smoke erupt from an  explosion at the International  Chemical plant. Many families  in town were minus a bread  winner.  Another time (I just heard  this story recently; it was kept  quiet) in the same town of  Grangemouth, a highly flammable solution escaped into the  sewer system. Every available  person was unobtrusively  called out to patrol the streets.  Until the chemical worked its  way out of the sewers, one  match thrown into a drain  could have leveled the town.  Odds'n'ends  Sometimes you can get too  much ofa good thing. I've been  feeding table scraps to the  neighbourhood raccoon. It has  come to an understanding with  our cat and they both co-exist  relatively peacefully. 1 opened  the door a couple of nights ago  and found that my hospitality  was so appreciated that the  coon had brought along three  buddies. They are interesting  little beggars, but four against  one is not too fair, so I'm going  to find out if it's as smart as it  looks. When it comes round  with its friends it's no go on the  hand outs. Hope it smartens up  and becomes a loner again.  Fish watching is still good in  the creeks. Make sure you just  watch and stay out of the water.  Say, does anyone remember  at one of the bird meetings last  year, when it was mentioned  Salmonid enhancement  by Joha Hlndsmith  It's great to be able to report  that there is no shortage of  activity on the fish front lately.  More people seem to be taking  an interest in what is going on  and instead of just sitting back  and waiting for Joe to do it,  they are getting out and doing  something practical. Up until  this year the commercial fishermen down this end of the coast  have not been too active where  work on creeks etc. was  required but now at last we  seem to have got the nucleus of  a good bunch of guys who are  willing to help and to pass on  some of their expertise to  others like myself. This-is the  way it should be because, after  that there was a special combination of seed that kept  starlings out of bird feeders... If  so, the second question is which  one of the speakers brought it  up. If I could find out, it would  sure be handy and welcome.  My numbers are 886-2622/  886/7817 and 886-9151. Give  me a call if anything interesting  comes up, ta. Incidentally, now  that my job on the sales side of  the paper has been admirably  filled by Fran Berger, I'll be  hopping around the countryside a bit more and will bc in  Pender Harbour at least once a  week. So I should be able to  keep in closer contact with  people.  all, they are the people who are  going to be making a living at  fishing and if there' no fish,  they are out of a job.  Last weekend on Saturday  the Gibsons Wildlife Club had  a rather disappointing day. We  went looking for coho to stock  the Vibert boxes with eggs but  failed to find any. Actually we  saw one male up Wilson Creek  but we decided we would have  to wait a little longer and hope  we get some rain.  On Sunday it was the Sechelt  Rod and Gun Club's turn to  use the services of Bob Hunt  from the Salmon Enhancement  Programme people. The Club  members made an up-welling  box and placed it in Flume  Creek. There used to be a good  run of chum or dog salmon in  this creek but because of  logging activities the run was  destroyed a number of years  ago and the idea now is to bring  the fish back. Permission was  obtained to take eggs from fish  in Roberts Creek and transfer  them to Flume. The whole  operation seemed to go very  smoothly and now all we have  to do is wait till Spring and see  what results emerge in the way  of little fish. A constant watch  has to be kept on the box to  ensure a free flow of water and  the box is going to be insulated  to prevent frost damage. The  Sechelt Club are to be congratulated on doing a good job.  Yesterday, November 9,  three commercial fishermen  and myself met Randy Hancock, the Fisheries Officer, at  the fish ladder at Wilson Creek  to try something which, to our  knowledge, had not been done  before. It seemed such a waste  to have all these chum milling  around in the creek below thc  fish ladder and to have lots of  beautiful spawning ground  going to waste above it. I  suppose it is not exactly wasted  but only a few coho and trout  are able to take advantage of it,  so why not transfer some of the  chum up and over the fish  ladder and give them more  room to operate.  This is precisely what we did  and by the time we had finished  28 fish had found a new home.  We checked back today  November 10 and saw ten  inbetween the culvert crossing  the highway and the top of thc  fish ladder. Four of the ten  were entering the culvert so  there is a good possibility of  their going still further. Garry  Russel, Slaveo Jovick and Rob  Corlett, all commercial  fishermen, together with  Randy and myself all got a  pretty good soaking but we  learned what not to do next  time and gave the fish a better  chance to operate.  George Elander and myself  and the Gibsons Wildlife Club,  together with Slaveo and son  Greg went up Husdon Creek  today November 10 and did a  bit of creek improvement and  also took along a load of gravel  and dumped it at the sites  Coast News, N j.e.uber 13,1979  where the Vibert boxes ,re  eventually going to be placed  This was not a very easy  operation when one has to  flounder through the bush  carrying buckets of drain rock,  but it does make it so we have  an easier time of it when the  coho co-operate and give us  some eggs. Everything is pretty  well all set for them now.  The fish are back in Oulette  13.  Creek and 50 have been <,  counted as far as the bridge. .  across the road. So it seems that;;)  the concerns expressed last year; |  about thc fish not being able lo  locate the new creek mouth  were unfourjed.  Anyone who is nterested  enough to do some work on  any of these projects could call  any one of the people  mentioned here.  Promised:  1. Control of our water  2. Promotion of youth employment  3.

November 13,1979  From Skelly in Ottawa  Dogma endangers Canada  by Raymond glully    Tuesday, November 13, 1979  Is it possible that the particular vessel in which Canada  is riding to economic disaster is  called "dogma"?  Within the past few months  we have seen several event! that  suggest blind ideology and  unshakeable theories arc more  important to the pcopli who  presently run the Federal  Government than are practical  realities or the needs of Canadians.  There is the case of Petro-  Canada, a healthy corporation  which maintains the only  Canadian presence in a Canadian petroleum industry dominated by foreign companies,  being dismantled and sold off.  Why? Because the members of  the Cabinet believe In the  theory that the Government  should not own business,  Then there is the mm of the  high, interest rate policy. In  economic circles, thli is called  "monetarism", the theory that  the economy can be controlled  by the Governmeni adjusting  the Central Bank's prime  lending rate and the supply of  money. The Liberals believed  [in that theory and attempted to  control inflation by raising the  lending rate. Now the Conser-  ; vatives, armed with the ume  dogma, are following the  Liberal lead with a vengeance.  Mas anyone noticed inflation  going down as a result of these  two governments following the  dogma of monetarism?  Recently, two noted Canadian economists, Arthur W.  Donnerand DouglasD, Peters,  produced a study entitled Hie  Monetarist Counter Revolution  tn which they argue Canada's  current wave of "structural"  inflation cannot be combined  by the inefficient tool of  tinkering with the prime lending rate. There are other  alternatives, they argue, along  with n.d.p. Finance Critic,  liob Rae who has boon Hying  in ih: House of Commons and  klscwhem that thi Govern-  rnenl's own high IMfgy price  policy is a major contributor to  inflation.  Nonetheless, the Government continues to raise interest  rates, presumably to fight  inflation, and raise oil prices  which contributes to inflation.  Why? Because of dogma.  In employee relations, the  Government is on the same  course. We have seen, in the  case of the flight service and  Coast Guard radio operators  strike, Cabinet Ministers prepared to witness the safety of  air travellers and mariners  compromised to the point  where supervisors actually  were closing down aieports  rather than risk having planes  land at them. Why did this  happen? Because the Cabinet  Ministers held to the theory  that one must be "tough" in  dealing with public servants.  By the same token, the  Government has embarked on  a program to cut 60,000  workers from the public service  payroll. Why 60,000? Because  it is a nice round number. It has  a ring about it. And that is  more important to those who  hold to dogma than all the  arguments about where these  Deserted Bay  The first weekend in November half of our group at Tsoh-  Nye stayed to host an ex-  Biology class from Centennial  High School in Coquitlam. We  did some hiking up the area and  had a good time together,  This week at Tsoh-Nye two  Coast Guard men came up  from Vancouver. They came  Tuesday and left Thursday  morning. When they came,  they brought some life jackets  and life suits.  While they were up they really  enjoyed their stay and that  pleased all of us.  The week was pretty good.  Some of us did work around  the camp, made some trails and  cleaned the garbage pit. Next  Sunday the parents are invited  up for the day to visit the camp  and see what it looks like.  Bye.

Onbecomjnga Rover  Ramblings of a Rover  ���by Dee Cee  a; Sometimes I wonder if all  | writers or would-be writers not  ; only suffer from amnesia but  e are afflicted with, I don't know.  9 the medical term for it, a form  3 of mind wandering. In spite of  e: all efforts, the mind will not  ���; stay under its owner's control  : but goes meandering and  J wandering up side roads that  e ultimately lead nowhere and  e produce nothing constructive  ; as regards what the writer  ; intended to write about. I  : should be interested to know if  e I have a monopoly on this  t peculiar affliction or is it  : general among scribes of  :  whatever age or gender?  All this preamble does  1 confirm one fact, however, and  , that is "my secretary" is right���  ; I am too long-winded accord-  t ing to her. Now don't get me  ; wrong. She is a jewel ofa girl.  ; In the Good Book it mentions  ; somewhere that "a good wo-  ; man is a pearl beyond price,"  . but it doesn't mention, as far as  j I know;, what a good secretary  : is worth. Recently I have  ; discovered in the heirarchy of  ; precious gems thut the emerald  I is by far the tops in as much as  !*- its worth is concerned and in  r that respect is far more valu-  e able than a diamond of equal  : carat or size. So let us recognize  '���; the logical conclusion���I have  K an emerald for a secretary! She  j; won't' like that as she doesn't  like the colour green and I am  sure would prefer to be called a  ruby, but I am not going to go  : for that as they can make  f. synthetic rubies but not emer-  ','��� aids.  I see I have almost covered a  ��� page and have yet to get to the  e. point of what I was going to say  * so I .had better get on with it. It  :- is simply that just recently "my  . secretary", who is also my  jj critic, told me gently that not  :-' only was I long-winded, but  ;*.' pointed out to me in a practical  '. way that at the rate I am going  .'��� it' will be light years away  i*efore I get this first venture  ;" out into the world written  ���', about  and  get  on  to  my  .'subsequent return to England,  ;'��� my attempt to quieten down  ;' and become a cable telegraph  ���'. operator, how I emigrated to  ���_. Canada, the depression years,  t and so on. Putting it in a  v nutshell, I have nearly sixty  ���' years of living to write about  ;: and, as she so succinctly puts it,  I am not yet seventeen and have  only reached Port Sudan! I  suspect she isn't too keen to  type out the accounts of my  visits to brothels and I know  she hates blasphemy so I will  try and avoid both and, at the  same time, be brief about this  first trip to sea on the Norman  Castle.  With the arrival of a couple  of British destroyers we left  Port Sudan and our next stop  was Aden, theat bleak and arid  outpost of the British Empire at  the extreme south end of the  Red Sea. We stayed there very  briefly and next rounded Cape  Guardafui which was interesting to me as I had been told  seriously that this was one of  the last, if not the last, places in  the world where there were  cannibals. Had my shipmates  told me this I would have  thought they were "putting me  on", but it was my brother  Billy, who had been stationed  at Aden for two years with the  Eastern Telegraph Company,  who imparted this information  when he was home on leave and  it certainly registered on me as I  was still a schoolboy. I remember telling Mr. Cassie, the  geography teacher, and he  more or less confirmed the fact.  There is one good thing I  have to say about the Union  Castle Line and that is they  certainly not only fed the first  class passengers in a sumptuous manner but the stewards  who attended them were accorded the same treatment.  In other words, whatever the  passengers ate, we ate also, that  is if there was any of that  particular dish left over at the  end of the meal. We had a very  large galley, in fact it was  actually two galleys adjoining,  and there was so much food  prepared and in such lavish  quantities that it is almost  criminal when one thinks of  what was wasted. There were  two drawbacks however, at  least as far as I was concerned.  Number one was that although  we were permitted to heap our  plates with all the left-over  goodies, there was nowhere to  sit down and eat it. We were not  allowed to take it into the  saloon nor to our quarters in  the fo'c'sle, we had to stand  or squat on our knees in the  passageways and consume it  there. I can truthfully say that  during the five and a half to six  months trip I never ate a meal  sitting down, that is with the  exception of the occasional trip  to the sailors' quarters back aft,  and then I didn't eat in their  mess hall but out sitting on the  hatch in front of their galley.  This leads to my second  complaint or the drawback I  mentioned.  One might wonder what I  was doing eating with the crew  back aft with all the' rich and  expensive victuals provided for  the first-class passengers available. The simple fact was that I,  incredible as it may seem,  didn't like their food. It was far  too rich and exotic for my  tastes and I wasn't used to it,  nor did it agree with me. The  hot and spicy curries, the rich  and creamy sauces, the veal or  chicken in aspic and the highly  seasoned game dishes were  entirely foreign to me. We  never had anything like this at  home although my Mother was  the best cook in the world and  my Father, with his grocery  shop, provided everything she  needed to feed her hungry  brood. At home I had been  used to good food but it was  typically English cooking-  roast beef and Yorkshire  pudding, steak and kidney pie,  hearty stews with the dumplings and so on, with maybe a  pudding or pie with custard for  dessert. I was not only bewildered by all this first-class fare  but I didn't know the names of  half of the dishes, nor did I care  to. All I wanted was something  in the way of food that  reminded me of my Mother's  cooking and this I found back  aft in thc crews' quarters���the  same plain not fancy food I was  accustomed to���so that was  why I preferred to eat there,  sitting on the hatch and  exchanging pleasantries with  the sailors and firemen. I felt  more at home there, they,  rough mannered as some of  them may have been, were a lot  kinder and friendlier to me and  I really appreciated their  company and far preferred it to  the stewards', both dining and  cabin.  The ship's "cook" as distinguished from the "chefs" in our  galleys, went out of his way to  be friendly with me and, let me  hasten to add, there was no  ulterior motive in his concern  for my well being. I have  forgotten his name after so  many years but he was a fairly  young man, around thirty years  Coast News, November 13,1979  .17.

In the hot  weather, after the meal was  over, he would peel off his  singlet and sit on the hatch  alongside me and I marvelled at  the rippling muscles along his  arms and shoulders and wished  mine were the same, I never  achieved his physical perfection. However I did try to  imitate him in later years by  having myself tattoed���but  only on my forearms���whereas  he had them all over his arms,  chest and back, decorated with  brilliant designs in all colours  and engraved, I am sure, in the  many different ports he had  visited during his seafaring life.  I was fascinated by his stories  and appearance and I thought  even more of him when he gave  our Fruit Steward, that bully  Krastein, a thorough good  hiding up on Number One  hatch one night, and it didn't  take him verv long either!
