This series of pictures taken by  Coast News photographer Ian Corrance graphically catches the sequence as the  Utilities corridor stalled again  boat first stands on one pontoon before turning completely over. The cause ot Ihe  accident has not been fully determined.  At the Regional Board  meeting held on Thursday,  November 16, Public Utilities  Chairman Morgan Thompson  told the Regional Board that  no success had been achieved  in trying to get the Provincial  Government to facilitate the  Utilities Corridor through  Sechelt. The text of Thompsons' Progress Report is  given below:  "Thc Utility Corridor Committee has not received any  response from the Provincial  Governmeni to its request for  a joint meeting with Mr. Curtis. Mr. Williams and Mr.  Neilson. The Corridor Committee sent a teller October 4,  1978 to the three Ministers  explaining the seriousness of  the water shortage situation,  outlining the proposed route  for the utility corridor, and  requesting a joint meeting to  discuss the issue. The Committee explained thai the  Regional District is not able  lo supply adequate water to  areas west of Sechell without  approval of the corridor to  allow the establishment of a  14" main through the Sechelt  Isthmus, The construction of  the water line would need to  start by November 1978 in  order to service thc area in  time for thc summer of 1979.  Therefore a meeting with the  Ministers was requested to  be held prior to October 27,  1978.  "There has been no written  reply from any of the minis-  teries. Thc Chairman of thc  Regional Board, Mr. Harry  Almond, has attempted on  eight occasions to contact the  Minister of Municipal Affairs  and Housing, Mr. Hugh Curtis. Mr. Almond requested  Mr. Curtis to return his call  and offered to travel to Victoria to meet with him to discuss the seriousness of the  sitUiition. Mr. Curtis has not  been available nor has he  returned any of his telephone  calls. His senior staff has  contacted Ihe staff of the Regional District asking for  clarification of thc requested  meeting.  "Staff has been informed  that senior staff from each  provincial agency involved has  drafted a position paper on  the utility corridor and these  papers arc being circulated  between agencies. Only after  their review will the matter  be presented to thc Ministers.  "It is obvious that a meeting between the Utility Corridor Committee and the three  Ministers will not be held  prior to December 1978. It  appears most unlikely therefore that the water main can  be built in time to supply  water next summer to thc  areas west of Sechell.  "The Regional District  first proposed construction of  a 14" main during Ihe winter  of 1975���76. Since that time  the situation has become critical. Fire protection is inade  quate in the summer for a  period of up to two months.  There are occasions where  there is no water for hours  at a time which could create a  potential health hazard. A  moratorium on development  in the area west of Sechelt  may be necessary. Unless  the Corridor proceeds and  water supply can bc improved  the Regional Board will have  to consider refusing to issue  building permits and recommending against all subdivision proposals."  SMT assures Sechelt  A letter of reassurance that  SMT Bus Lilies had no intention of culling back on services  was circulated amongst members al lasl week's Council  meeting in Sechelt. The following Is an excerpt:  "While ii would be rather  difficult for us to issue you a  guarantee thai we will never  consider changes in our  existing services at any future  point in time, wc can assure  you that the expiry of our depot lease in Sechelt is in no  way connected with a plan to  reduce bus service. We-will bc  establishing a new agency in  Sechell lo act as an express  terminal and passenger stop  to coincide with (he closing of  our present facility." The  letter was over thc signature  of W.H.Hamilton, General  Manager, SMT.  Mr. Clayton presented  Council with a set of revised  plans showing the landscaping  for thc extension of thc Trail  Bay Mall.

New cards to  cost residents  A meeting will bc held In  Gibsons on Wednesday of  Ihis week lo discuss thc Ferry  Corporation's plans for the  issuance of new commuter  cards. Thc meeting has been  suggested by fhe Municipal  Council of Powell River.  Thc suggested date of the  re-Issuance of thc new commuter cards is December 31  and there is some question  as lo whether or not this date  can bc met. In addition, lhc  Ferry Corporation's intention  Is to charge the users $2.00  for each commuter card.  Thc Powell River Council  point out thai in lhc past thc  Ferry Corporation have met  thc cost of Issuing commuter  cards and on this occasion,  since they seem to bc alone in  considering new commuter  cards necessary, there appears to be no good reason  why residents should bear  the cost.  In conversation with the  Coast News, MLA Don Lockstead also expressed himself  as being firmly opposed to  the charge to residents of  this cosl and could sec no  reason why Ihe commuter  cards were necessary before  next summer al thc earliest,  "This is lhc Ferry Corpora-  lion's Idea," said Lockstead.  "and as such Ihcy should  meet lhc cosl."  Successful candidate Joyce Kolibas casts her ballot  in the Sechelt Municipal election last weekend.  From Recreation Committee  Lee resigns  Regional Director Charles  Lee of Area 'C resigned from  the Recreation Committee of  Ihe Regional Hoard at the  regular meeting held on November 16. Lee's resignation  was effective October 27,  he said.  In a prepared statement,  Lee charged that Ihe entire  recreation package hud been  very poorly prepared. "I find  there has been complete irresponsibility   and    culpable  negligence. There is nolhing  on recreation except a complete morass of malinforma-  lion and misinformation,"  said Lee.  Board Chairman Harry  Almond challenged Lee's  assertions as they applied to  the Roberts Creek Hall and  the Pender Harbour swimming pool specifically. Thc  director's resignation was  unanimous!, accepted with  regret.  fcatcd In Saturday's elections. Alderman Lorraine Goddard lopped the polls and was  returned lo council for another  two years.

Delayed again  The long drawn-out dispute  about thc rezoning of the  property belonging lo the  Jackson Bros. Logging Company in Tuwanek look another  twist al the Regional Board  meeting held on Thursday.  November 16. when Regional  Director for thc area. Charles  Lee, reversed his position  and opposed Ihe rezoning on  behalf of lhc Sandy Hook  and Tuwanek Ratepayers.  The property had already an  industrial use when lhc original zoning vveni into effect  and the Regional Hoard moved  to make it conforming but ran  into opposition from lhc rale-  payers who objected to Ihe  possibility of a sawmill,  which would have been allowed with industrial rezoning. The Regional Board then.  alter an initial public hearing, moved lo create a new  zoning which would allow the  logging company lo have an  ollice ai iheir prescnl logging  operation bul nol a sawmill.

The most recent setback  came when Victoria requested  changes iu the by-law, necessitating a third public meeting.  Al Ihe November 16 meeting Ihe by-law was ready for  final approval until Director  Lee said lhal there may Ik  legal ramifications and requested thai il hc again  tabled.

Ferry failure  A possibly-dangerous  situation was averted on Saturday morning when a diver  al lhc Langdale Ferry Terminal discovered lhal lhc  rudder of lhc Queen of New  Westminster was coming  loose.

The replacement ferry was  the Queen of Tswawassen,  a slightly smaller vessel, but II  ferry spokesman said lhal Ihe  cold windy weather had kept  traffic down somewhat on the  run and the Tswawassen had  been able lo handle the weekend traffic with a minimum of  overflow traffic.

Advertising Department:  Penny Christian  Involvement and the budget  It seems here that lhal was a regrettable decision the outgoing School Board  made against allowing community in-  volvemcnl into Ihe process of hiring  administrators. School Trustees Precesky, Frizzell and Spiekermann are lo be  commended for their vote in favour of  more community involvement. Il is bard  to see much to commend the stance of  the other four trustees who defeated the  motion.  Generally speaking, the public schools  are arenas in modern society where thc  democratic judgement is most feared.  The entire hierarchic arrangement of  schools indicates a distrust of lemoc-  racy. The overblown position accorded to  administrators generally, who are not  first among equals but the unchallenged  and unchallengeable font of all power and  educational wisdom, is an undemocratic  distortion. It remains true that the main  thrust of most administrators' learning  has been how to administer. For one  reason or another they have been men  who decided not lo stay iu the classroom  and why that should justify the large  salary differentials they enjoy over those  who do the actual teaching must be  something ofa mystery.  The move by the local School Board  away from community involvement is  lhc more to be regretted when one  compares the School Board Budget with  its equivalent just five years ago. Five  years ago thc provisional budget for this  School District was under two and three-  quarter million dollars. For next year it  is almost six million dollars. That is an  increase of well over 100% in five years  and the School Board is moving in the  direction of less community involvement.  "Leave us alone, we know what we  are doing." they would seem to say. Not  everyone is convinced.  Is this really necessary?  The resignation of Director Charles  Lee from the Recreation Committee  conies as no surprise. Director Lee has  made it clear throughout thc exercise that  he had serious misgivings about the  advisability of the region's recreation  package which thc provincial government  recently put on the back burner.  Director Lee has gone on record again  and again as being an advocate of fiscal  restraint and certainly it is a position  which would seem both justifiable and  tenable and his espousal of it does him  no discredit whatsoever. At every level  of government it would be desirable to  have a zealous watchdog to ensure that  Ihe mis-spending of public monies bc  kept to un absolute minimum.  While it is possible to grant Director  Lee the validity of his basic position and  lo applaud the zeal with which he maintains it, one must object, it would seem,  lo some of his comments in resigning  from the recreation committee. Director  Lee's claim that there was "complete  irresponsibility and culpable negligence"  in the preparation of the recreation  referendum would seem to do a considerable injustice lo public-minded citizens  throughout the regional district who  worked for three years planning the  recreational package. Surely it is possible  for lhc director lo disagree with these  people without uttering blanket condemnations of mass irresponsibility and  negligence.  Similarly, in the case of the rezoning of  the Jackson Bros, property which is in  Mr. Lee's area it should be possible for  the director to change his mind without  the rather snide insinuations of incompetence that he apparently feels rbliged  to make to justify his new stance ��� the  incompetence of others of course. A few  months ago thc director was filling the  newspapers with condemnations of the  ratepayers of Tuwanek because many of  them he found were not on the Voters'  List. He could not support them in consequence, he told us. Now he can, apparently, but he cannot change his mind  without melodramatic intimations of legal  action by the ratepayers ��� though there  is nothing now new in that ��� and again a  somewhat contemptuous inference of  incompetence on the part of others.  It is said that Director Lee has aspirations towards the chairmanship of the  Regional Board and the directors would  do well to consider very carefully before  they allow that to happen, lt seems from  this vantage point that the public and  individualistic fulminations of thc Director from Area 'C have done more to  raise doubts in the mind of the public  about thc Regional Board lhan any other  single factor this year. The position of  chairman would seem to require more  diplomatic skills and a better sense of  teamwork than Director Lee seems to  possess.  . .from the files of Coast News  IU*?     a*C^,��, Sl aKtoll  5 YEARS AGO  Larry Labonte" is elected Mayor of  Gibsons in the municipal elections  held on the weekend.

Those who can't,  teach." When I went to  teacher's college almost  twenty years ago we had a  refinement on that saying.  "Those who can't teach, teach  teachers," and truly the staff  of Macdonald College Teaching Division seemed to be  mostly rejects from the public  school system who had found  themselves unable to stand  the gaff in the classroom and  had taken refuge in thc theory  of teaching.  For the most part they  brought with them whatever  foibles and failings had made  them inept in the classroom in  thc first place. There was the  spinster lady who taught  Teaching Methods and  stressed thc importance of  establishing eye contact with  your class, all lhc while addressing her every remark to  the junction of Ihe wall and  the ceiling behind our heads;  there was Ihe homosexual professor of French wilh a penchant for individual interviews  in his office that mosl of lhc  young men Hied lo avoid.  Perhaps Ihe saddest and  most interesting of these  failed teachers leaching teachers bow to teach was a huge  old man called Dr. A.B.  Curry who had come the other  way to teaching college. Hc  had been a professor al McGill  University, of philosophy one  would gather, and rumour had  it thai lie had been demoted  to the teaching college on the  west end of Montreal Island  because his students had complained incessantly that his  ieclures were totally incomprehensible.  Certainly they were incomprehensible io us. It wasn't  thai thc weirds he used were  unfamiliar. They were not, but  somehow Ihe sense escaped  us. What made it the more  irritating was lhal Ihe old man  oozed presence and a sense of  drama. One had the feeling  that if one could only penetrate one would be truly enriched. Al thai time I could  take Pitman shorthand al  lightning speed and once I  actually took down every  word, typed the lecture out,  and tried by studying the  whole filing to achieve some  small enlightenment, Il  defeated me entirely.  Almost twenty years ago,  t when I was in teaching college there was a great dearth  of teachers. The class I  attended was called Class 2S  and it was designed to rush  teachers into the breach with a  total of two years university  training and many of thc  members of the class were as  strange as the professors.  There were failed credit managers, burnt-out actors with  their memory gone, misfits of  a wide variety trying to latch  on to the security of a teacher's certificate.  The hodge-podge that we  were, we were electrified one  day towards the end of the  History of Education course  that Dr. Curry taught when he  stormed into thc classroom  with his portable lectern  on thc desk, put down the  briefcase without opening it  and spoke directly to us aboul  thc real world:  "Thc other day," hc said  leaning back on lhc ledge of  the blackboard with his tongue  in his check ��� obviously  something important was  coming ��� "I was walking  down a railway platform," ���  he leaned forward on the lectern for emphasis ��� "and I  passed a bunch of workmen.  One said lo the other," ���  here he paused in an electric  silence ��� "Vou be Clod today,  YOU BE GOD TODAY".  We sal transfixed by the old  man's intensity and the novelty of communication.  Harold Hamwee was a  member of Ihe class, spiky  greying hair, great dramatic  eyes. Hc had been a professional actor and had toured  North America in some quality  productions but he had an  ulcer now and his memory  wouldn't work. What hadn't  deserted him was his timing  and his sense of the dramatic  and into thc electric hush in a  magnificent stage whisper hc  breathed in outrage. "Blasphemy!"  "Yes, YES," said the old  man at the front of the room,  galvanized into quavering  affirmation, one hand reached  oul towards Hamwee in  dramatic linkage. Never was a  cue given or taken better on  any stage. We were enthralled  even if we weren't sure why.  Of course Ihere was an  anti-climax, provided on this  occasion   by   a   middle-aged  fellow called Gene Herman  who was a man of truly remarkable menial dimness who  persevered and became an  administrator. He rubbed his  hand thoughtfully over his  crew cut and said, "Well,  hc just meant you be the  boss." "Arc you serious?"  demanded Curry but the class  had found relief in laughter experts eviscerated birds and  and the moment was lost. read thc entrails or rolled bits  I became obsessed with Dr. of bone to assess the future.

I was convinced that if These days, on much less  I could only just breach his   reliable evidence, anyone with  Following any election, thc  pundits and analysts arc quick  to point out trends and political movements particularly  if such changes can bc expressed in terms of the  "right" or "left". The so-  called experts arc also most  enthusiastic if they can interpret such movements as being  signs of political collapse.  In   the   old   davs.   these  Olympic detachment I would  learn greal things. I discovered that the old man was a  devout Baptist and thought I  could reach him. 1 went up lo  him one day after class as he  collected his lectern and his  briefcase and I said, in my  most winning way, "Dr.  Curry, I went to a Unitarian  service yesterday and I must   couvcr   Civic   elections  confess   it   was    thc    most   week for instance; lhc  any kind of opinion at all, informed or uninformed, is  ready lo predict thc imminent  collapse of western civilization on the outcome of the civic election in Port Moody or  the School Board election in  Rock Creek.  satisfying experience I have  ever had in a church." Surely  the old Baptist would be stung  into reply.  He was about six feet,  six inches tall and. with his  lectern under his arm, he  looked down al me indul-  gcntly-and said, "As long as  it sustains you, my boy,"  and turned on bis heel and  moved majestically away.  So much for my cleverness.  Years later, after I was a  teacher, I caughi the afternoon bus from Ihe west end  of the island where I taught,  going into lhc city and there  was Dr. A.B.Curry going  home. He was hunched uncomfortably into the constricting bus scat. Around him  on every side were French-  Canadian charladies homeward-bound to thc city after  cleaning the homes of the  wealthy west-endcrs. They  spoke rapidly and animatedly  in joual and the lonely old man  Take thc results of lhc Van-  last  T.V.  and radio analysts (mercifully Ihe newspaper strike  lias spared us such nonsense  in print) unanimously decried  Ihe re-election of Mayor  Volrich. Volrich and his crew,  who were elected by substantial margins over Iheir TEAM  and COPE rivals, arc clearly  representative of a conservative, thrifty and unimaginative  approach to municipal affairs.  To suggest however, as ihe  experts have, thai Ibis approach to civic governmeni is  somehow backward is clearly  going beyond the bounds of  fair editorial comment,  First of all, il is reasonable  thai municipal government  ought to reflect some of the  most immediate and "close-  to-home" concerns of the  voter and taxpayer. Home  owners, faced with rising  taxes and bureaucratic interference from Iheir local government arc bound to react bv  grcssivc act, it was a clear,  responsible, reasonable and  predictable act of a people  re-asserting their independence from governmental  harassment.  By casting a ballot for Volrich these voters were nol  supporting the re-instatcment  of capilal punishment or a  return to workhouses for thc  poor; or supporting a law  which would encourage the  stoning of homosexuals, or  clamoring for the repeal of the  income tax. No, they were  simply staling a fact of Canadian life; that a person's  home ought to be inviolate  from the exigencies of an  unpredictable municipal government.  Another aspect of elections  often overlooked by the  experts is that often the most  apparently inept of successful candidates will prove to be  thc most useful vvhen in office.  In the case of Mayor Volrich  Ihis lias nol proven to bc true  but there arc many examples  from popes and American  presidents to mayors and  school trustees. The fact is  that in many more cases lhan  nol, the office makes Ihe man  or woman rather lhan thc  other way around. Anyone  who has ever actively participated in a political campaign whether 'federal, provincial or local, can tell you  lhal when you work very hard  lo have a particular candidate  of your choice elected the  likelihood is that hc will bc a  terrible disappointment or  worse.  A couple of weeks ago a  certain very liny local writer  suggested his disappointment  that the school board seals to  be filled in our area had gone  uncontested. His clear inference was that two of the  winners by acclaimation,  Al Lloyd and Len Van Egmond, were perhaps not as  nothing as much as an ancient  and dignified lion alone  among the jackals.  .    ,   .     ���,          .   ,   ,         ,.                 .,   .   ,                    -    progressive as  might  bc.

It would be appreciated if the following facts were  made apparent to the public.  At approximately 1:15 a.m. on  November 11, Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department received a call from a Mrs.  Hanson stating her house  was on fire on Aldcrshaw  Road, not Oldershaw Road as  you reported in your article.  The alarm was immediately  sounded and il was then discovered thai wc did nol have  an Aldcrshaw Road in our  district, only an Alderspring  Road, so Ihe Fire Trucks were  dispatched to Alderspring  Road. Al this poinl another  call was received regarding  the fire and it was then reported as Oldershaw Road,  which of course is in Roberts  Creek. The caller was informed she should be calling  Roberts (reek lire Department instead of Gibsons.  The trucks i n route to Aider-  spring Road were informed of  the error and turned back, and  (hc Roberts (reck Fire  Department was called and  informed of ihe fire, These  above mentioned events happened very quickly in succession, all within a very few  minutes I mention this fact  as your article may possibly  cause an unaware reader lo  wonder jusl how much time il  took lo rectify thc error.  Unfortunately in the case of  fire or any  emergency, time  is of lhc essence and it is  indeed unfortunate that the  Hanson family did not know  they were in thc Roberts  Creek Fire Protection District and in turn called the  wrong Fire Department.  May I take this opportunity  to stress thc importance to  thc public of knowing the  correct emergency numbers  pertaining to thc area they  reside in and keeping a list  of them in a prominent place  near their telephone. It is also  mosl important, in the event  of an emergency, to give  clear and concise road names  and directions to enable the  emergency vehicles to respond quickly.  RobClcdson,  Gibsons Volunteer Fire  Department  Students thank candidates at meeting  Editor:  We wish to publicly thank  the candidates who attended  the meeting at Elphinstone  on Monday, November 13;  from Area 'F' Mr. David  Fyles for Mr. David Hunter,  and Mr. David Leslie; and  from Gibsons Village, Mrs.  Lorraine Goddard, and Mr.  Keith Evans.

I had,  to Ihis point, considered your  editorial policy to be a very  fair one.  But here you apparently  approved the publication of a  cartoon totally concerned with  an issue thai had already  (October 21) been soundly  rejected by thc concerned citizens of Area 'F'. Either your  policy or the artist appears to  indicated a disgruntled loser.

I head over  In their cabin around dusk.  having been asked to supper  again earlier in the week.  To my surprise. Jane and the  kids are alone, "Where's  Matt?" 1 ask.  "Oh, he's gone up the Inlet  for a couple of days." she  says casually. "He's jusl  about finished here and thev  needed a bit of falling done  up al Halderson's camp,  tailed hiai this morning on  lhc radiophone. Said for you  ami me In have supper  anyhow, Co ahead and sil  down. I'll gel you a glass ol  wine, ll's jusl about ready."  She brings ihe wine and  hands it to me wiih a theatrical little llourish. "Vour  health, sir!" she says. Jane's  obviously been making a  lew loasis prior lo my arrival.  \v usual, her appearance is  scrupulously neal bul she's  wearing a dress I've never  seen before ��� a satiny, off-  I lie-shoulder affair that clings  i" her when she walks. I  guess my eyes are bugging  out a bit.i "Like my dress?"  she asks tinocently. "This is  lhc one I uted to wear dancing  in ihe old days. Gacss it's a  hit oul of fashion bill I figured  I'd makcbelievc I was back in  \ ancouverjusl for tonight."  "No, it looks real tine,"  I say, trying to sound offhand. Hell, after six-months  nl bunkhouse pin-ups. il looks  .i whole lot heller than fine.  I hen her kids come burst-  ing from thc bedroom to ply  me with questions and put  ihiugs back in perspective  I nr ihe moment.  Supper is negotiated sue-  .essl'ully to the accompani-  1111 ni of more wine. Afterwards, I'help her dry the  dishes arJH then she shoos  [lie kids a)ti lo bed. "Let's  si c if (lire's any decent  music on this damn radio,"  CLASSIFIED NOTE  Drop off your Coasl News  Classifieds at Campbell's  Famlly Shoes & Leather  Goodt In down-towa Sechelt.  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  says Jane. She fiddles with the  dial and comes up with a  disc-jockey who's playing  some pretty tasty jazz. Thc  music floods through Ihe  drab living-room she's tried  in enliven with a couple of  pictures; a few ornaments.  "You're My Thrill" sings  Billy Holiday with lhal ineffable poignance that sends  shivers through me even then.  And suddenly, qulte-spon-  lancouslv. we're dancing ���  swaying together in thc  warmth of the wine to the  bittersweet moan of the  song. She's a much-better  dancer lhan I bul I can muddle  Ihruugh on slow-pieces like  this. I've never been this close  to Jane before and I'm very  conscious of her proximity,  her perfume; Ihe pressure of  her full-bosomed body against  mine. For a moment, I can almost imagine we're in a  dance-hall someplace instead  of a floating gyppocamp shanty at the tail-end of nowhere.  Thc plaintive ballad ends  and an uptempo number  conies on. Jane and I sit down  on thc couch. My emotions are  a confused jumble of desire  and guilt. Christ, she's Matt's  wife! But it's sure as hell  hard to remember that tonight. I don't know what  Jane's thinking but she seems  to sense my confusion. "Looks  like, we could both use a refill," she says and fetches  the resl of the wine. Then she  begins to talk about the city  again but in a much more open  way from vvhen Matt's  around.  "I was never cut out to  live in a damn place like  Ihis! God, I was always one  for ihe nightlife and high  times. Used to work in a  beauty-parlour and I figured  to start up my own shop  eventually. Knew several  fellows bul I wasn't serious  about any of Ihem. I was just  having myself a ball. Then 1  met Matt at a party one winter. Hc was quiet and different. Treated me like 1 was  someone really special. He-  sort of grew on me and I  fell for him pretty hard.  Well one tiling led to another. I gol pregnant and he  offered to make it legal. Said  he'd quit the woods and gel  a job in Vancouver. Course  it never worked oul lhal way.  Here il is over five years  later and we're still living in  bloody logging-camps.  Mall's a kind guy and a good  father to the kids bul we don't  have much in common when  you come righl down to it.  I guess you'd have to call  him dull. And he's not very  romantic either, if you gct  what I mean. Honest to God,  I get so bored and lonely  sometimes, 1 think I'm going  out of my mind!"  I've never had an older  woman unburden herself  like this to me before. I  really don't know what to do  beyond offering my useless  sympathy. Somehow my arm's  around her, her head's against  my shoulder and she's sobbing softly. All at once, she  stops and looks at me in a  desperate way. Then she  kisses mc more passionately  than I've ever imagined being  kissed before. It's as though  a dam has suddenly broken in  Jane and I've become the  focus of all her thwarted  longings. Her tongue explores  my mouth like a wet snake.  Her warm arms are around  me. She's sweeping me away  with her. beyond agc-differ-  enecs and thoughts of disaster. I warm to her ardent  attack; caress her with inexperienced hands. Soon, we're  lying full-length on the  couch with nature well on the  way to taking its course.  Suddenly; awfully; unexpectedly,  we  hear  heavy  foot  steps on the front-porch.  "Oh, Jesus Christ!" gasps  Jane in horror as wc pull  ourselves apart und attempt  to straighten our clothes,  "hc must have got finished  early!" I'm too goddamn  seared to speak or even think.  I've heard of men getting  shot in situations like this.  Thc door opens and Matt  comes in. He eyes us calmly  with no particular expression,  Ihe way hc might size up the  lean of a tree. There can't  be any doubt in his mind  as to what's been going on ���  our rumpled appearance must  speak for itself ��� and yet he  deigns not to comment.  "Starling to snow," is all  hc says and walks right by  us into the kilchen. My initial  craven inclination is to get  the hell out of there but 1  figure that'll make things  look even worse. I force myself to sit pul for a token ten  minutes or so, shaking in  my shoes. Jane's pulled herself together and is in thc  kitchen fixing something to  cat for thc ominously-silent  Matt. Finally, 1 mumble a  guilty goodnight and head for  the door. I hope Matt won't  beat Jane up or anything  but somehow, I don't think he  will. He's too close to losing  her as it is. He's thc kind of  quiet guy who'll bury his hurt  and carry it deep.  But if nothing else happens,  it's effectively put an end to  my relationship with Jane. I  decide the best I can do under  the circumstances is quit but  it snows all night and the  next day, Fanny shuts the  camp down anyhow. "Come  on back after Christmas,"  she says to me in her bluff  way and I say maybe I will,  knowing full well I won't.  I wonder sadly what will  become of Jane. Some women  just aren't cut out to be loggers' wives. Years later.  I think I sec her from a bus-  window, walking happily  along the street with a different, younger man but I'm  never sure.

The disc-jockey in question is the famous Wolfman  Jack who plays himself in  American Graffiti, which will  be shown at thc local theatre  Wednesday through Saturday,  November 22���25. The film  will bc shown at 8:00 p.m. on  Wednesday and Thursday  and at 7:00 and 9:00 p.m. on  Friday and Saturday.  Wolfman Jack began in  1956 as a teenager and became one of the radio legends  of that decade. Lately he has  become highly visible as the  co-host of T.V.'s weekly  "Midnight Special" reaching  an estimated 15 million view  ers per week.    Big Wednesday is the second feature of the week and  stars, among others, Gary  Buscy most recently seen as  Buddy Holly. His co-stars in  Big Wednesday are Jan-  Michael Vincent, William  Katt, with Katt's mother  Barbara Hale prominent in  the featured cast.  The first half of the film is  devoted to thc hedonistic  pleasures of the three leads  and their pals but the second  half of the movie is serious  and reflective, even touching. Throughout the story  there are breathtaking shots  of master surfers riding giant  waves as casually as crossing  a street.  Big Wednesday will bc  shown locally Sunday through  Tuesday, November 26���28.  Cultural Evening  By Kelly Malngot  On Sunday, November 12,  our group put on a culture  show at Elphinstone Secondary School. We had all been  assigned different tasks in  preparation for the evening.  Everything was ready by 7:30,  when our guests began to  arrive. Our foster-families,  the people from our work  placements and a few others  from the community had been  invited.  There was a display of  Indonesian materials and  pictures, with punch to start  the evening off. At 8:00, wc  began with a fashion show.  The Indonesians were each  dressed in their own traditional costumes from North and  South Sumatra, Java, Lom-  bok, Sulawesi and Irian Jaya.  There were two solo dances,  the Batik Dance and thc Nail  Dance, and two solo songs in  Indonesian. Our whole group  joined in to sing more Indonesian songs and three  French-Canadian songs. We  had two group dances at the  end, Kuala Deli and Jali-  Jali, when everyone could  participate. There were also  souvenirs presented to the  people from our work placements and one to the mayor  for the community.  After the show, we had a  buffet-style meal with nasi  (rice), soto ayam (chicken  soup), gado-gado (salad with  spicy peanut sauce), oseng-  oseng (vegetable dish), pisang  goreng (fried bananas) and  also deserts provided by our  foster-families.  We all had a great time  arranging and putting on the  culture show and were glad  so many people came. We  would like to thank everyone  for helping to make it a  success. We hope everyone  had a good time!  (TWILIGHT  ^THEATRE?  GIBSONS  Sun., Mon.  & Tues.  Nov. 26,27  &28  8 p.m.  Gary Busey  who played  Buddy Holly  in the  Buddy Holly  Story  By Rae Ellingham  Week Commencing:  November 20. General Notes:  Mars, planet of action, conjoins Neptune, planet of confusion, warning us to double-  check all details of this week's  activities. Muddle and deception are in the air. It's a poor  time to start new projects  or ventures. Things will seem  clearer next week so bc patient and wait.  Babies born this week  will act on inner beliefs and  personal convictions. Many  will show interest in religion,  higher learning, philosophy  and long-distance travel. A  few will become priests or  professors.  Those of you born around  March 3, June 3. September  5, or December 5 must show  courage during ihis time of  frustration and delay. Brighter  months lie ahead.  ARIES (March 21-April 19)  Accent is on practising what  you preach. You're now expected to back up beliefs  with action. Hypocrites will  bc exposed. Mean what you  say and do what you promised. Messages from far away  are confusing. Postpone long  journeys till next week.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Loved-one's financial department hints of misguided  activities. Answer is fewer  excuses and more effective  planning. It's the wrong time  to beg or borrow cash or  equipment. Put aside documents related to tax. insurance, investment or other  people's money.  GEMINI (May 21-June 21)  You're now easily influenced by the actions of close  associates. Be careful. Focus  is on plots, treachery and hidden competitors working  against you. Be cautious about  that near-perfect relationship. Act wisely and alone.  Sign no agreements or contracts.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  Emphasis is on health and  employment. Co-workers may  be confused, touchy or quarrelsome. It's no time to introduce new ideas, methods or  techniques. Illnesses may bc  linked to overwork, worry or  poisons. Careless use of medications, drugs or alcohol now  brings bad reactions.  LEO (July 23-Aug.22)  Accent is on social activities, pleasures and amusements. You realize that pretending to have a good time is  a waste of money. Lessons are  learned through hasty specu  lation and rash love affairs.  Artists should harness inspiration while it lasts. Children  may bc dishonest, sneak v.  VIRGO (A'ug.23-Sept.22J  Focus is on domestic environment. Temptation is to  rush into ill-planned jobs on  thc home front. Great ideas  need careful approach. Check  for leaking oil, gases or inflammable substances. Put  aside real estate, rental or  land agreements. Emotional  outbursts may be linked to  stubborn parents.  LIBRA (Scpl.23-Ocl.23)  Accent is on menial framework and day-to-day thinking. Fiery inspiration now  produces enthusiastic or  argumentative conversations.  Remember, if you can't say  something nice, don't say anything al all. Corny, but true.  Short journeys see you lost,  missing short-cuts and travelling in circles.  SCORPIO (Ocl.24-Nov.22)  Advice is to keep your eye  on your money. Check financial transactions for short  change, deception or trickery. Take your lime choosing  expensive items. Don'i become mesmerized by smooth-  talking sales-persons. Guard  all possessions against theft  or loss.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov.23-  Dcc.21)  Don't rush into things.  Actions may be based on hazy  ideas or impulse. Slow down  and lake stock of progress.  Others are finding you idealistic, confused and moody.  Opportunities are linked to  long-distance message.  CAPRICORN (Dcc.22-Jan.19)  Slop snivelling over your  own problems. Now's thc time  to work without reward or do  favours for those confined to  home or hospital. Stay away  from gossip-mongers or people who seek revenge. Have  nothing to do with dishonest  schemes.  AQUARIUS (Jan.20-Feb. 18)  Clubs, societies, and group  endeavours hint of uncertainty, confusion and impractical ventures. Friends and  acquaintances may also  surprise you with ill-conceived actions. Now's the time  to sift out disreputable  associates.  PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar.20)  Conduct your personal  affairs with honesty and integrity. Someone out there  may be scheming to undermine your reputation. Have  impeccable proof ready. Don't  promote position, career or  achievements. Lie low and  wait.  Whitaker House  The fate of Whitaker House  is becoming increasingly  uncertain. Olaf Wallander  made a presentation to the  Sechelt Council last week  in which he offered the house  to the Village as a museum.  The house, if not moved, is  due for demolition. Being one  of the last remaining historic  buildings in the area, it is fell  by many that it should bc  saved as a reminder of thc  village heritage. With this in  mind, Wallander has been  trying to have thc building  moved to another location and  renovated.  This was to have been done  by lhc Sechelt Lions Club and  thc building was to bc made  available to bona fide organizations in the community.  After the difficulties encountered in trying to locate the  house on Hackett Park, the  Lions realized that they may  have to purchase a lot and  this plus thc expense of moving the structure was felt to be  oul of their range.  The same situation applied  to thc Village Council. They  thanked Mr. Wallander for his  offer, but they hud to decline  "Al a Regional Board meeting on Thursday evening, it  wus moved thai plans of the  house bc drawn up in case, at  some future date, it was decided thai u replica should bc  built.  THE BEACH COMBER  MOTOR INN  DINING ROOM  IS NOW OPEN  4p.m. to 9p.m.  The  IBeach Comber  Motor Inn Book Review  A glimpse of the future  By John Moore  Looking over the newsstand of late, you may have  noticed the appearance of a  magazine called Seriatim.  It's not exactly new; the  current issue 1 have is thc  eighth and it's a quarterly, so  that would mukc it exactly  two years old. Thc growth of  its circulation seems to be as  gradual and persistent  as the growth of the movements it represents. Seriatim  bills itself as "A Journal of  Ecotopia". "Ecotopla", for  those unfamiliar with Ernest  Cullcnbach's novel of the  same name, is a compound of  "ecology" and "Utopia"  and describes, according to  the editors of the magazine,  "A region lying along the  northwestern edge of the  American continent, Stretching north from San Francisco lo Vancouver, and west  from Ihe Sierras and Cascades lo thc Pacific, an  environmentally-attuned, stable-society is emerging. Formerly thought to exist only in  the imagination or in thc  future, Ecotopia exists here  and now as an infant society;  as a succession of forest  growing towards climax from  a thousand clearings." Lyricism aside, staff-writer Bob  Kohl puts it more succinctly:  "During Ihe sixties my generation was heavily involved in  protesting Ihe status quo.  Some of our more thoughtful  critics suggested that our  protest would guin more credence if we were to offer  alternatives instead of just  complaining about thc way  things were. Thc seventies  saw us hitching up our jeans,  tying back our buir and really  yelling down lo experimenting with some of these alternatives." Seriatim is an tip-  dale report on thc progress of  those experiments.  The articles are grouped  under headings: "Experiments in Living", "Alternative Technology", "Agriculture", "Well Being", "Transport", etc. The subjects  inevitably overlup to a point,  but that seems to be part of  Ihe plan; to present an integrated picture of thc wide  range of experiments in alternative modes of living. The  "Experiments in Living"  section contains long articles  on Sunburst Farms, a Santa  Barbara based conglomerate  of four communal farms that  is thc backbone of a very  successful line of health-  food products; Sunburst Natural Foods. Sunburst Farm  corresponds to most peoples'  idea of a commune; rural,  agricultural, its inhabitants  living lives of material simplicity and obedience to a  code of ethics derived from  fundamental        Christianity,  Buddhism and Yoga.  Cerro Gordo, also the subject of a Seriatim article, is a  slightly different kind of  "intentional" or Utopian  community, located in a rural  environment near Cottage  Grove, Oregon, but not oriented specifically toward agricultural or pastoral activity.  The ideal of Cerro Gordo  is to create a "village community which, with careful  town planning, a fixed population ceiling, a thorough  recycling system, and an organization that is co-operative  rather than strictly communal,  may offer a creative alternative to thc sterile suburbs we  have thus far produced. Under  the "Experiments in Living"  heading there's also a long  review of Seven American  Utopias! The Architecture of  Communitarian Socialism  1790���1975. Thc book is a  dissertation on thc psychology of Architecture itself and  on thc history of Utopian  communities in thc U.S.  The "Experiments in Living" material naturally links  up with articles from thc  other sections, like the one on  "Urban Homesteading",  particularly interesting since  a number of governments,  including our own, are beginning to get interested in the  possibilities of urban agriculture, rooftop farms, etc.,  now that we've paved enough  of the hinterlands of our cities  to seriously imperil their ability to sustain themselves.  There are tips on buying land  for rookies heading for greener pastures and reviews of the  best books on farming for  beginners. The magazine is a  good "source of sources"  carrying reviews of books on  alternative energy sources  and electric vehicle development as well. One of the articles I found most interesting  was the article on "Eco-  topian plastics", plastics that  lack the one great disadvantage of the stuff we're  so used to, inasmuch as  they're actually biodegrade-  able. The trick is a process by  which starches derived from  corn or tapioca are combined  with plastic. The resulting  compound doesn't react to  water alone, but prolonged  contact with the soil causes  the starches to break down  into humus. Since starch from  any plant can be used, starch  from nonedible sources can  be substituted so as not to  divert potential food into  plastic.  Overall, thc best thing  about Seriatim is that it  brings together information on  thc progress of widely diverse  experiments in alternative  living, lt enables people  interested or engaged in these  experiments to profit by the  exchange    of    information.  When the youthful critics of  thc sixties stopped sounding  off and started getting down to  business, a lot of them found  that coming up with alternatives to the things they criticized was damn hard work.  Some got their hair styled,  traded in their coveralls on  sparkle T-shirts, and started  humming disco tunes instead  of shouting slogans. The ones  who remained committed  have been too busy struggling  to transform their dreams into  viable realities to make much  noise, so it was easy to think  they'd all just faded away.  Seriatim makes it plain that  they haven't. In a world that  has teetered on the brink of  total destruction for more than  two decades, they're out there  working to create a future not  only for mankind but for the  entire planet as well. Thc  survival of both may to no  small extent depend on the  success or failure of some of  the experiments covered by  Seriatim. At $2.50 a crack it's  a bargain for a glimpse into  the possible future.

From National Film Board  Recreational films  By Jeff Brown  Wednesday evenings,  November 22 and 29, will  provide the residents of the  Sunshine Coast with the opportunity to stimulate their  minds with some films from  the National Film Board of  Canada library. The first  evening of films will start off  with King Size, a short and  pleasurable animated film  dealing with that old theme of  tobacco addiction. This cleverly done cartoon will prove  fruitfully amusing and arousing to young and old alike.  Secondly, an artistic master  of improvisation, Norman  McLaren, produces an excellent slow motion study of one  of the most difficult and exacting dances of classical ballet in Ballet Adagio.

Nahanni, winner of seven  film awards  throughout  thc  world, traces thc dedicated  life of a fumed historical  Canadian prospector, Albert  Faille, as he pushes up Ihe  notorious Nahanni River for  the seventh time in search of  gold. Dying at thc age of  seventy-two only u few years  back, he was u man of incredible fitness and perseverance,  qualities I'm sure wc would  all like to achieve and possess  in our lifetimes.  After a short intermission.  two more films, Volleyball  and I'll Go Again, will conclude the firsl Wednesday's  programme. Volleyball, set  to a jazz background and  scenes of excitement, provides  thrills of championship  volleyball between teams from  Russia and the U.S.A. lt is  thc only black and white film  of thc evening und the choreo  graphy of ihe participants'  play-by-play movements  makes this film one of universal appeal. I'll Go Again  is the story of four athletes  who trained hard for the  I976 Olympics, had their  hcuris set on winning medals,  bul never did. "Was il worth  it'.'" Ihcy ask themselves.  The film answers Ihe question.  All in all il should prove  lo be an entertaining evening  so bring family and friends lo  Ihis free evening of films.

ESSO ECONOBLUE:  1W WW U1TLE FURNACE  THAT CAN SAME  A LOT Of FUEL  The new Esso Econoblue takes  up only 3'/2 square feet of floor  space. Yet it is designed for maximum  fuel economy.  This oil-fired, forced air system  uses a better mixture of air and  oil vapour for more complete combustion. And because the mixture-  is also recycled, you get more heat  out of every drop of oil.  If your old furnace works at 66%  efficiency, for example, Econoblue  could reduce oil consumption by  20%. This means if you now use  750 gallons of fuel a year, Econoblue could save you 150 gallons.  So, if your furnace has  been showing signs of age lately,  don't wait until it gives up  altogether.  Call Esso Home Comfort.  The sooner you do, the sooner  you'll start saving fuel.

Besides its obvious meaning  of "creating again", it also  means "Refreshing of the  strength and spirit after  toil", "Giving new vigour  and animation", "Diverting,  amusing", "Giving relief  after labour or pain", "Entertaining". Recreation: the light  and happy bits that help us  get through the hard parts;  the pleasures that sustain us.  And we have so many choices.  For the "diversion and  amusement" of all of us, several special events will take  place in the coming weeks  which will undoubtedly  "refresh the strength and  spirit" if only given a chance.  One is ihe Vuricty Night of  comedy, music, dunce, melodrama, tragedy and romance  being sponsored by thc Arts  Council on December I.  Undoubtedly worth both seeing and supporting.  Another treat being offered  us is "Thc MIME Show",  an opportunity to enjoy marvelous acting and antics  without words by mime artists  Gerardo Avila and Patricia  Smith, newly returned from  studying their art in Europe.  Performances will be in Sechelt on November 26, and in  Gibsons on December 2.  We are fortunate to have so  many talented local people  willing to perform for our  entertainment. By attending  the performances one may  discover a whole new area of  recreation, all the more  enjoyable for being unfamiliar  and unexpected.

I saw  this film about five  veins ago, and I was greatly  impressed by the costumes  and sets, thc eerie musical  score and by the splendid  acting of Maria Cailas in a  non-singing role. Writing in  thc New York Times of October 29, 1971, Vincent Canby  says, in part:  "In casting Maria Cailas  in thc title role, he (Pasolini)  has visualized his theme with  extraordinary success.  Medea is uneven, but I admire  the reckless courage of its  conception even when it goes  wrong. When it is right, as  in the poetic and funny prologue, delivered by the centaur (Laurent Tcrzieff), and in  its eerie evocation of Medea's  world, which (according to  Pasolini) is our subconscious  world, it is superb."  Teenagers  Most teenagers know that  they have to be quite fore-  bearing with parents if they  intend to stay under the same  roof during thc years when  they no longer are children but  arc still not independent  adults.  Most parents feel it requires  thc patience of an angel to  live with eternally dirty socks  on the bathroom floor, telephone calls that never seem to  end and teenagers who are  convinced they have found all  the answers, if only parents  were equipped with a minimal  brain capacity.  Elisabeth Brown knows a  lot about the problems parents  and teenagers are faced with  because both parts lack some  essential communication  skills. Many parents feci  guilty because their teenagers  reject the traditional role in  the family and it is often difficult for a teenager to understand why they still arc treated as children when they,  at the same time, are taking  responsibilities for certain  "adult" areas.  The problems go on and on.  Often they only dissolve because thc teenager leaves  home.  Elisabeth Brown has  offered four lectures for  parents of teenagers to show  that positive changes can bc  made if parents learn to recognize the problems that lead  to collisions between the two  generations. She will also  talk about the teenagers'  special needs for relevant  nutrition, recreation and  education.  The fee is $10.00 for either  parent or both.  Please prc-register with  885-3512.

Two guest speakers ul lhc  first meeting were Don Mi-  Dermod from thc Wildlife  Federation and Tom Murray.  the chairman of a citizens'  task force for salmon enhancement. Two films were slated  to be shown ul the meeting, but us il wus lhc first  one there wus too much lo  discuss und only the film on  salmon enhancement could bc  run.

Rail-  ��� i -- an incentive to per-  suae!, settlers to remain in  and cope vs.i111 life in lhc rural  wesl. The differences in radio  in Britain and Ihe U.S. can  apparently bc traced back to  those early days when the  manufacturers of radio sets  in Britain turned to lhc educators to provide programming and thus encourage  people to buy radios, while  in the U.S. the manufacturers  became thc entrepreneurs  who also ran the radio stations. I hey were also at first  very higlimindcd with good  intentions to use Ihe airwaves  as a resource lo serve society.  The dignity ol the home was  very close to the hearts of  Vmerieans so anything entcr-  ing lhal home was sacred and  good I.isle ��as of paramount  importance. No commercial  messages were allowed on  Suiiilav s.  Ihere was a strong move  ui ihe early Thirties, debated  loi Iwo years in Congress, for  au American equivalent lo  ilu B.B.C. but radio was  already a lucrative business  and the 193-1 Communications  Acl steered clear of any government involvement. Thc  free enterprise, commercial  system was however required  to provide both programming  in ihe public interest and educational programming as well  as entertainment,  Ihe debali was resumed  al lhc end of lhc war but by  liiis time educational programming had been pushed  back to Sundays and late  evening hours and Ihe balance  of programming had been  lost. There was a strong feeling of national identity and no  v ish to become B.H.C.-izcd.  ( ongress did. however, with  ihe advent ol television, set  aside frequencies for noncommercial television, bin  ihese ueie on the UHF  band, not accommodated by  mosl manufacturers of T.V.  sets oiil also lint were not  lai -sighl d liougll to provide  anv funding  in.'s. school boards  and small non -profit organizations   struggled   against   (lo-  II  odd's  Children's  Wear  mt.JUP.MEL  lialh odds lo sustain Ihe  audience for quality programming. In I960Ihe Ford Foundation paved the way and was  followed by other private  sources lo make money available for both capital costs and  programming. But Public  Broadcasting was still a shoestring operation, a sniall  number of independent tiny  stations scattered around  thc country. The 1967 Broadcasting Act sei up the Public  Broadcasing Corporation to  integrate these stations and  dispense funds and the Government would match public  subscription on a dollar to  each Iwo dollars raised each  year. In 1972 Nixon vetoed the  bill which would have funded  PBS ou a two-year appropriation giving them some small  measure of security from  which to plan.  In 1978 things arc looking  up for PBS across lhc country.  First of all, more and more  Americans are watching their  Public Broadcasting Stations  and ihis support has led to  an increase in governmeni  funding over a three-year period and an increase in thc government's share to an equal  dollar for dollar appropriation.  Seattle's K.C.T.S. is different from thc C.B.C. in that  it is an autonomous station  within the Public Broad-  easting framework, a station  which can produce as much  or as little of its own programming as it wishes or can  afford; which can share its  programmes with its sister  stations across the nations;  and in turn use programmes  made by them. K.C.T.S. has  evolved from a community  slalion lo one which reflects  Ihe whole Pacific Northwest.  The University of Washington  holds Ihe license as a trustee  for the community.  Because of direct audience  support and commitment  ihere is a high degree of audience involvement in lhc station and the professionals  employed work closely with  their audience. Dr. Meyer  n">de no apology for providing  an outlet for the work of independent Canadian film producers and these of the  National   Film  Board   .  Many of those attending  the Conference were freelance film makers seeking  an explanation as to why the  C.B.C. will not accept their  work when it is of high enough  quality to be accepted by  K.C.T.S. That of course is an  issue which is important to all  of us as Canadians and is to  a great extent inherent to our  Canadian Broadcasting system and its centralized organization.  It did seem to me that  pertinent question to ask was.  if K.C.T.S. is going to fill  the slot which the C.B.C.  should rightly be filling for  Canadians and thus attracting more and more Canadian  viewers, will we continue to  need the C.B.C?

Hydro chairman Robert Bonner has already gone on lo  bigger and better things and  is now advocating nuclear  power plants for the province.  It seems ironic that while  B.C. Hydro pretends to listen  to the requests of people in  Ihis area when we ask them to  seriously consider alternative  sources of power such as wood  waste, coal, solar or natural  gas, in reality they are already  committed to massive energy  projects such as nuclear  power plants.  Police news  Harry Crawshaw, 79, who served in both World  Wars and wore leg braces for eighteen years, was  converted from alcoholism by the Salvation Army  and then took up karate. Above we see the results.  In the top picture, assistant Haroon Rahiman breaks  a concrete slab with a sledge hammer on the unsupported stomach of Crawshaw. In the bottom picture  Crawshaw breaks eight concrete slabs with his hand.  Pub turned down  The application by Maurice  Green of Irvings Landing Marina for a neighbourhood pub  on his premises was turned  down at the Regional Board  Meeting held on November 16  after Area 'A' Regional Director Joe Harrison advised the  Board lhal a clear majority of  the members of the public who  had attended a public meeting  on October 2l) had been  opposed to the granting of a  licence.  Green told the public meeting lhal he would, if grained  lhc licence, restrict its use to  thc tourist season from Easter  to Labour Day. Hc said that  he had received approval to  extend his water lot to allow  him to enlarge the current  moorage facilities.  Most members of lhc public who spoke against thc  application were concerned  about increased litter and  noise.  During the recent cold  spell, there have been several  minor accidents. They have  been attributed to black ice  on thc highway.  The one month's amnesty  for unregistered firearms is  still in effect. To date, one  unwanted weapon has been  turned into thc R.C.M.P.  in Sechelt for disposal.  Sechelt lo Earls Cove:  November 11: While assisting police at Davis Bay, a  man lost $70 in cash from his  pocket. Black ice caused a  vehicle to leave the road near  Ruby Lake. $500 in damage  resulted. Richard Conkin  swerved to miss a deer on  Ihe Garden Bay Road. His  ear ended up in the ditch,  causing $250 damage to the  vehicle.  November 12: A woman had  $400 in clothing stolen from  thc Sechelt Laundromat.  November 13: A 1975 Honda  and a 1%7 pickup collided  near Davis Bay, causing  $2,700 in damages. The driver of thc Honda was charged  with making an unsafe left  turn. A residence in Selma  Park was broken into. A framing hammer, two axes, rain  gear, a red metal tackle box,  a fishing knife and assorted  pots and pans were taken.  Police feci thai the property-  could only bc reached by a  four-wheel drive. Two juveniles were apprehended for  driving erratically in downtown Sechelt. On investigation it was found that the  youths had thc vehicle without the consent of their parents. No theft charges will  be laid, however R.C.M.P.  are considering charging one  of the youths under the Motor  Vehicle Act.  November IS: A woman on  Mermaid Street reported that  sometime during thc night,  ihree   pairs   of   underwear  were stolen from her clothesline.  November 16: Tire slashing  was reported on thc Indian  Land in Sechelt. A yellow pickup was left parked on Redrooffs Road after running out  of gas. When the owner returned, thc driver's mirror  and window had been kicked  out.  November 17: An elderly  woman reported that she was  missing four rings. A gold  wedding band with three  diamonds; a gold ring with  three red stones inset; an  engagement ring with garnets and pearls; and a gold  band with an aquamarine  stone. Julie Southurst of Garden Bay lost control of her  vehicle on black ice. In thc  accident the windshield  popped out and one window  broke.  Gibsons Area:  It was a quiet week in Gibsons. A boat on Keats Island  was broken into. $300 in fishing gear was taken. B.C.Hydro reported that vandals have  been shooting oul the insulators on the lines at Wharf  Road in Langdale.  Lasl week Mr. Bonner said  thai B.C. Hydro will have to  start construction of a nuclear  power plant within ten years.  He dismissed those of us who  advocate the use of soft  energy technologies by saving, "ihcy don'i have the big-  ticket answer to see us  through." And .villi typical  B.C. Hydro insensltlvity, he  said that nuclear power would  be part of B.C.'s energy  future whether or nol public  opinion favoured it. Once  again Hydro has shown thai  the concerns of the people for  a safe and healthy environment arc nol the concerns of  Hydro.  No wonder Howard While  of lhc Pender Harbour and  District Ratepayers Association says that there doesn't  seem to bc any way of getting through to Hydro. Even  though public outcry to Hydro's massive power projects  has been growing consistently louder, there seems to  bc no accountability on the  part of Hydro for any of ils  energy proposals. Hydro's  attitude seems to be. "wc arc  thc only ones qualified to  make decisions regarding  energy and we arc not interested in your opinions on the  subject."  Il is certainly lime that  Premier Bennett made certain Ihat Mr. Bonner and  B.C. Hydro take an interest  in our opinions. As minister of  energy, Mr. Bennett has an  obligation to ensure thai  energy policy in this province  reflects thc concerns of thc  electorate. Thc recent defeat  of Ihe Austrian government on  the nuclear power issue is  evidence that when people do  not want nuclear power, they  are prepared to gct rid of any  government which tries to  force it upon them.  We desperately need to  have province-wide hearings  to allow for public participation in the determination of  our   future   energy    policy.  promised by thc former  minister of energy, .lack  Davis, that these hearings  would be held, and we arc  slill wailing. Until that energy  policy has been formulated,  with the benefit of public  Input, B.C. Hydro should nol  be allowed lo proceed with  any more massive energy  proposals. I have called for a  two-year moratorium on the  construction of thc Cheekeye-  Dunsmuir Iransmission line,  and I would like to see sonic of  the nearly $400 million earmarked for its construction  spent on studies to determine  the feasibility of alternative  energy projects for this area.  Premier Bennett can no  longer shirk his responsibility  by complaining that B.C.  Hydro is out of control.  Ultimately, he has control of  Hydro and the energy policy  of this province and it is time  he seriously considers replacing Mr. Bonner wilh someone  who will work to sec thai  B.C.Hydro becomes responsive to ihe wishes of the  citizens of British Columbia.  Two  hunters  found  Two Richmond men, Dave  Bung and Bill Smith, got  separated while hunting in the  Secret Cove Area, on Sunday  evening, November 12.

So far over a  third of Ihe industry has fallen  under Japanese influence, and  there is no sign thai the buyout activity is letting up.  Why is Ihis happening'.'  Because Japan's government and private sector have  shown more foresight towards  Canada's sea resources lhan  has the Liberal governmeni in  Ottawa.  Iwo   vears   ago.   (anada.  along wiih a number of other  countries, extended its coastal  sea boundaries to Iwo hundred  miles, bin our governmeni did  mn follow through on lhc  implications of thai move  while Japan's did. Il encouraged its private sector lo  buy into processing plants and  fishing companies worldwide so il could gct around  thc new two hundred mile  limits.  This quest for a guaranteed supply of fish reached  righl into Canada's waters.  and it has not helped lhc  British Columbia economy.  Sure, foreigners are buying  more Canadian fish than  before, but Ihcy arc buying  from companies either entirely  or substantially owned by  overseas interests. That  means when lhc fish sail  away thc profits go along for  the ride.  What then gels left behind  in Canada? You mighl think  lhal all Ihis foreign investment in thc industry would  have at Icasl created some  jobs. But Ihis is not thc case  according to a report issued by  Fisheries and Environment  Canada. Thc repori. Foreign  Investment in the British  Columbia Processing Industry, says Ibis:  "Whereas ill other industries capilal is welcomed for  development, lhc fish processing sector is fully developed  al Ihe prescnl lime. Because  landings are relatively constant, an increase in processing capacity would have  negative implications. Nol  onlv would existing processors be threatened, hut overall  employment would nol increase tin terms of lime and  total wages) and foreign  interests would obtain a captive supply of fish for Iheir  markets, thus limiting the  control Canadians have over  their ow II resources."  Abend) some of our smaller  processors ate running into  hard limes. Japanese investors have been competing wilh  each oilier right on the docks  bv financing cash buyers.  This bankrolling may bankrupt small Canadian firms  lhal do nol have the massive  financial resources of Japanese i ompaiiies.  In met I this Japanese  competition. Canadian firms  suddenly have the need lo  raise capilal. Who is ihere lo  provide Ihe financing ���Japanese corporations of course.  The lull extent of these  loans is not known, but one  can imagine ihev arc rarely  made without conditions.One  such deal was detailed in thc  Fisheries Canada report.

The teams are  made up of two Y.B.C. bowlers and a Master bowler.  None of our teams won but  we showed them how to roll  300 games. Michele Solinsky  rolled a 302 single, Dianne  rolled a 304 single, and 1 had  a 301 single. Wc bowled pretty well and it gave the kids  a little experience bowling in  a different house under tournament conditions.  At home in the Classic  League 300 games were  rolled by: Paddy Richardson,  a 313 (rolling what we call  the Paddy Ball); Ralph Roth,  a 301; Freeman Reynolds, a  309; Yours Truly, a 315; and  Jeff Mulcaster a 330.

Highest   Scores:   Classic:  Renegades win again  Soccer by J & Co.  Saturday, November 18,  False Creek Park, Vancouver.  Renegades vs Agha Khan.  A great performance and  another victory for thc yet  undefeated Renegades!  Although Agha Khan's strong  point has always been their  excellenl footwork, thc  Renegades surpassed them  easily al Ihat level of soccer-  playing skill. Matched with  great passes, this gave the  Renegades control through  most of the game. In thc first  half, Agha Khan caughi thc  Renegades off guard by scoring their first and only goal  three minutes into the game.  They kept control of thc play  until Renegade Vern Joe  evened thc score ten minutes  before the end of thc first half.  From there on thc game clearly belonged to the Renegades  against such odds as mud  puddles, many confusing  scrambles, and a referee  suffering periodic attacks of  blindness in favour of Agha  Khan.  Thirty-five minutes into  the second half. Bradley Joe  scored thc winning goal for  thc Renegades during a mad  scramble in front of Agha  Khan's nel. This victory for  thc Renegades was especially  disappointing for Agha Khan.  A game well-played by both  teams regardless of who wins  sportsmanship to the surface  after thai game is over. Unfortunately this wasn't Ihe  case with Agha Khan and  their many fans. Even vvhen  the Renegades lose a game,  they always cheer and congratulate their opponents. It  is an example that other teams  would be well advised to  follow.  Note: Thc game scheduled  for Sunday between the Gibsons Wanderers and thc Se  chelt Renegades was cancelled for a second week in a  row. Last week's meet was  cancelled due to a frozen field.  One wonders why this weekend's game was cancelled...  could il be Ihat the Wanderers  have wandered loo far to show  up for a good game on a  beautilul sunny day'.'??'.'  Wc were all looking forward  to it. A victory by default for  thc Renegades is no fun to  watch.  Easy for Juniors  Wanderers Junior met  West Van Eagles at Langdale Field on November 5.  Thc game was slow-starting,  but saw Gary Knowles pull off  the hat trick, with three goals  by half time. They were  assisted by Mark Jacobsen  Robbie Jonas and Ken Kwasnycia.  The second half started with  yet another goal by Gary  Knowles, assited by Bobbie  Nicholas. The next goal was  by Robbie Jonas, assisted by  Ken Kwasnycia. Chuck Esscl-  monl lifted a beautiful ball  straight down centre field,  right into the goal ��� a real  money-maker for Chuck.  Let's hope the person who  made that foolish bet pays  off!

I sweat, shake and almost freak out whenever I  even tjiink about it. But I  want to go south for Christmas and have to fly. What can  I do to get over this fear?  Anxious  Dear Anxious:  I guess a therapist with  intensive work could gct you  over it. In a short time, all I  can suggest is a tranquilizer  before you leave home. By  thc time you gct there, to thc  airport that is. you will he  more relaxed. If you arc  , religious remember you  probably arc a little closer to  your maker ��� I don't know.  1 won't fly myself unless it  is an emergency. I like to keep  one foot on thc ground.  Dear Ann:  Recently I was invited out  to dinner by my boyfriend to  a restaurant in a nearby  town. Hc made reservations  in advance and I had dressed  in a long dress. He had a  nice shirt and blue jeans on.  The owner refused  us  ser  vice because my date was  wearing blue jeans. The place  was half empty. Is this proper  without some mention of dress  when you phone in? Outraged  Dear Outraged:  1 feel the same as you.  Here we are in little resort  towns, in the off-season.  Women like dressing up,  young men seldom do. Some  times their image doesn't  include all the restrictions of a  suit and tie. 1 feel these  people are trying to be social  giants ��� and keepers of our  decorum ���when in truth they  have no class and can't  recognize it when they see it.  They remind me of the  hotel in Spokane which threw  out Bing Crosby because he  was in his fishing outfit.

Got It  Dear Got It:  I get it, you've got it and  he has it to get. It's impossible  to be in Ihe same mood  as the other in perfect harmony all thc time if you have  frequent encounters.

View from here  By Bruce M.Wilson  The earliest settlers of this  wild and virgin (at that time)  rainforest land had to be a  special, hardened breed of  man. As I look out my window  their ghostly images float  past���people who pulled up  stakes, left their comfortable  homelands and hit the highroads in search of...What...?  Adventure, excitement, the  proverbial pot of gold, a new  and freer lifestyle than their  present existences could  afford or offer?  There must, of course, be  as many reasons as individuals for thc great Westward Trek.  Why, for instance, would  George Gibson ��� thc first  settler of this at that time  inhospitable area ��� leave one  of thc best producing farms in  Ontario to attempt to cleave  for himself a differing life on  thc coast? Why indeed?  Perhaps as Eileen Glassford  (niece by marriage of old  George) has suggested his  reasons were over-taxation in  Ontario. Perhaps as the sages  arc misquoted as saying,  "familiarity breeds contempt!" Perhaps, with thc  cross-Canada rail route just  completed, thc lure of thc  west coast and more temperate Pacific Ocean clinic was  irresistible to men of Old  George's particular bent.  Having just read Pierre  Bcrton's book The Wild Frontier in which hc describes  incredible adventures of thc  men who settled Canada's  wildest and most challenging outposts, it seems to mc  wc should pay tribute to and  recognize thc spirit of such  men as John Jewitt^who was  held captive by the greal.  legendary Noolka Indian  chief Muquinnu for two and  >inc-hall' years and still, after  the incredible outrages performed upon him, he could not  for thc resl of his days resist  the call and lure of what hc  describes in his journal as  "a most savage and uninhabitable land", and return hc  did, constantly, in spirit,  and bodily, for the ehal'cngcs  afforded him were irresistible.  Or consider, if you will.  the strange saga of Mina Hubbard whose husband through  his own ill planning and lack  of understanding of the hardships and trials to be encountered in an attempt to cross thc  unmapped interior of Labrador ��� a five hundred mile  trek across virgin territory ���  expired from exhaustion and  starvation. Mina, herself,  with the aid of a competent  guide. George Benson, made  the trek, carrying thc Hag for,  and unfortunately attempting  to defend her (as she perceived him) heroic husband.  Mrs. Hubbard exhibited the  true strength and pioneering  spirit that should be recognized as thc Canadian Identity  that we, according to Reader's  Digest and Macleans magazine, are so desperately  searching for.  Reading these tales of others' heroic pioneering spirit  has made me want to strap a  pack to my back and walk to  Prince Rupert. Here in the  true and oft-times incredible  tales of our country's roots  can bc found that nature  which must have inspired Old  George Gibson to cast aside  the familiarity and comfort of  Ontario farmlife. Here, in our  country's history, in lhc tales  told of Mountic Sam Steele,  of the last Indian battle (a  vibrant, intriguing tale of  three men pitted against one  hundred of Ihe Queen's  Finest) lies the very fundament of ours and our country's  rude beginnings.  Discover for yourself, if  you will, the talcs of: Cariboo  Cameron who struck a claim  second to and jusl south of  the remarkable Billy Barker;  Wilfred Grcnfcll, driven by  an urge to serve his mission,  establishing and maintaining  missions for Ihe Grand Banks  fishermen who were existing in that time in thc most  un-inhabitahlc shacks (sleeping ten or twelve deep ���  depending how you stacked  them ��� in earthen floored  hovels); and Father Isaac  Jogues, who desired so much,  as his Jesuit nature dictated,  to become a martyr.  If you live in Canada and  consider this land to be your  homeland these tales arc  musl reading. The historical  imperative and indomitable  spiril of these early pioneers  and explorers has become,  through time, that very nature  which distinguishes us as  Canadians from our often-  VIOLENT-ncighbours to thc  south.  It is fascinating stuff,  truly fascinating.  sign hc doesn't love you?  I feel that way. I know I'm  reasonable. Hc says he'll  change but doesn't ��� what  can I do bul leave him?  Worn Thin  Dear Worn Thin:  I sympathize, lt seems  sometimes all is futile, then  try a compromise and give a  little. Sometimes it works.  When you have invested a  lot of time and energy in a  relationship you hate to give  up without trying everything.  Sometimes it's good to leave.  If missed enough, maybe  the person will exert him/  herself to change. It's good to  test this process before you  are really too fed up to care.  Often when wc wait to leave,  wc can't go back, it's over,  'fry, then sec how you feel.  Leave before love turns to  hate.  Dear Ann:  1 am a rather shy fellow.  I'm nol bad looking. 1 keep up  with the times, but have little  luck with 'women. I'd like lo  look more ready, if you know  whai  I  mean ��� more out  rageous,  so  to  speak.   How  can   1   have   more   impact?  Model A  Dear Model A:  We can all stand an overhaul once in a while. Grow a  large moustache ��� the girls  must like them, there are so  many. Have a hair stylist  cut your hair. Buy a pipe and  a vest and look mysterious.  Some fancy man scent could  help. Announce your presence  so they'll bc looking for you.  1 like British Sterling, and  Verbena ��� try several, and  lots of good hunting.  Dear Ann:  I guess this isn't too unusual a problem, but I'm so  worried when I lake my wife  oui. She won't wear underpants, Says thev are too  bulky, or hoi. etc. I want her  lo look modest and depending  on what she wears or how  she sits. I just gct frantic  at her lack of modesty.  Free Show  Dear Free Show:  Thai reminds me of a Lenny  Bruce quote: "She had on a  blouse you could see through,  and I didn't want to."  Remind her thai she should  practise bending, silling,  dancing, in from of a mirror.  Then you may have lo say  'no' more. If she is doing it on  purpose, don'i expect lo  change her.

I have been  greatly disturbed lately to find  mv house disturbed. Even  when we arc only on the other  pari of the properly, someone  or several people are turning  my drawers inside out. going  through my house. Wc have  purchased a gun; what else  can we do? It's creepy thinking such bold people are  around. Angry  Dear Angry:  I certainly feel thc same  way. On the coast there arc  few people I know that haven't  been ripped off of tools,  vehicles, sewing machines,  money, someone robbing  while Ihe people are at home.  So a lot is up lo you. I know  how outraged you feel at the  invasion of privacy. First  gel strong locks, if you have a  private road padlock a wire  gale; sure thev can walk  around bul it's a slow getaway. If it's a jointly used  road, share lhc keys. That  could be a big deterrent.  Even pul covering over your  windows. Set traps in all the  drawers when you go away,  something for rats inside and  something bigger outside.  Take turns patrolling if you  have to go away. A large  shepherd dog trained to  attack inside the house.  When they see you mean  business, don't let up, have  your friends watching and  helping to find oul who it  is. Then proceed. There's  loo much of this terrorism  tolerated. Do your own  stakeout.  Coast News, November 21, 1978  A Conservative   view  11.

Thank   vou   one   and   all.  By Vie Stephens  Leader, Conservative Partv  of British Columbia  Why is there a homeowner  granl?  Because our taxes are too  high.  Why arc our taxes too high?  Because the governmeni  needs enough money to pay  the homeowner grant.  Do you mean lo say that part  of our taxes are collected by  government just so it can pav  it back to us?  Yes, but worse than thai, the  governmeni can only pay back  pari of whai il collects because  il costs a lot lo pay Ihe bureaucrats who colled the lax and  pay il hack.  It would appear then, that the  homeowner is not gaining  from thc homeowner granl  but losing.  Exactly, Ihe people who  gain are the public servants  hired to administer the  scheme. Ihcy gel jobs at our  expense. The politicians who  perpetuate Ihis fraud vv ill also  benefit until the public decides it can no longer be  bribed wilh its own money.  Whai would vou do to change  ail this?  That's easy. If taxes arc too  high reduce them. Don't  subsidize them with our  money.  What would you do lo reduce  property taxes?  We would remove school  taxes entirely from properly.  In mosl cases thc school lax  is higher lhan the homeowner  granl so homeowners would  receive greater benefit than  they gel from lhc grant and.  al ihe same lime, we would  be able lo eliminate thc cost  of collection and repayment.  What about those few people  who would still have difficulty in meeting the remainder of Iheir property taxes?  For people in need, especially  pensioners and lhc handicapped, the homeowner grant  would remain.  All Ihis seems so simple.  Why arc wc led to believe thai  il cannol be done?  Complexity is the first line  of defence of lhc bureaucrat and lhc politician.  Iheir  jobs  depend   upon   it.  Sim  plicity    benefits    onlv  tin  taxpayers.

Fire -  costly  Fire! Children's ward of  St. Manila's hospital destroyed by lire, cause not ycl  determined. Three children  rescued by nursing staff.  Ihere were twenty-three  children in thc ward at thc  outbreak of the lire. Only on  TV do we witness a fire like_  lhal, of course, bul our province docs have some horrendous lire losses. There were  465 last June ��� just one  month of the year ��� with  thirty-seven persons injured  and three dead and over  $14 million properly loss,  mosl of it a sawmill fire in  C'astlegar. Last January was  an even more calamitous  month for B.C. with forty-  three injured and eighteen  dead in 589 fires.  From thc Office of the Leader  of the Opposition  MINING:  Remember thc hysteria in  the 1975 election, "The  Mining Industry is dying in  its hole, killed by thc NDP".  Remember the half-page advertisements with Alibi  Bill Bennett's picture at the  bottom. "Disaster" in the  mining industry the ad said,  "Thousands of miners out of  work". Social Credit would  cure all this and get mining  "moving again".  The Socreds did get it  moving again ��� down the  hole!  Here are the facts given  by the B.C.Mining Association themselves:  Only two mines opened  since 1975. Alton Copper  Mine which was negotiated  and started under the NDP  and a sniall gold mine, North-  airc.  Under thc Socreds mine  closures total four plus Craig-  mont, who have announced  closure is coming.  Mining Association says  by the end of 1978, "No new-  mines will bc in sight, no  mines have announced plans  for production and no construction is underway."  Harvey Parliament, President of B.C.Mining Association said. "The plain fact is  there are more mines closing  down in B.C. than are opening." In 1977 there were three  less operating mines than in  1975.  Bob Matthew, Director of  B.C.Mining Association said,  "If the decline does not stop  we may not have a mining  industry in British Columbia."  (Source���B.C.Mining  Association Bulletin. June 16,  1978 & Vancouver Province,  July 11. 1978.)  Bob Matthew again ��� "Unless   we   open   more   mines  quickly." the mining industry  "will largely disappear."  "There will only be 18 operating mines in B.C. by this  year end." (Vancouver Province, October 10, 1978.)  EMPLOYMENT:  "Thousands of miners out  of work." said Alibi Bill.  What's Ihe present picture?  In 1976 there were 15,681  persons employed in the  mining industry. In 1977 this  had dropped to 15,448. A net  loss of 233 jobs. (Source���  B.C.Mining Industry���Price  Waterhouse Ltd.)  Jobs lost through closure  or cutback are: 1976. Gran-  duc Mine, 80; 1976, Phoenix  Mine, 25; 1976, Texada Mine,  176; 1978, Granduc Mine,  320;TOTAL,601.  In addition. Craigmont  Mine has announced closure  for 1979 with a loss of 320  jobs. This will make a total of  921 jobs lost.  So under Social Credit,  in spite of two new mines  opening, one of which was  started under the NDP,  employment in the industry  is going down.  TWO SUCCESS STORIES:  Kaiser Resources Coal Mine:  McLean's Magazine, October 2. 1978, tells this story.  In 1972 Kaiser was "on its  knees" with "losses totalling  $33.3 million." This was under the old W.A.C.Bennett  Socreds. "It was flat on its  ass."  (Then came those wicked  Socialists to wreck the mining  industry!) "In 1973 Kaiser  declared its first profit of $3.5  million." 1 has gone up and  up ever since and "last year  made $57.3 million". Some  wrecking!  Afton Copper Mine:  The Socreds' latest propaganda sheet, a twenty-seven  page colour  booklet,   "B.C.  Economic Development",  paid for by the taxpayer (cost  to date $70,000) features the  new Afton Mine as one of the  great economic achievements  under the Socreds. Three  hundred jobs ��� a $6 million  annual payroll ��� an $85  million investment ��� boast  the Socreds.  We hate to ruin such  plausible propaganda, but thc  facts are that the Afton Mine  go-ahead was negotiated by  the NDP government with  Gary Lauk as Mines Minister, and the final decision  to go was made in OCTOBER,  1975.  In case you think this is  propaganda too, let's quote  Dr. Norman B.Kcevil, Jr.,  Vice President of Tcck Corporation, who owns Afton  Mines, lt was Kecvil who  negotiated with the NDP.  "The proposal previously  worked out with the NDP  government of Dave Barrett  will go ahead." (Vancouver  Province���February 19. 1976.)  So it was the NDP who  brought $85 million in investment, 300 jobs, and a $6  million payroll to Kamloops.  The Socreds have only  brought mine closures and a  loss of 921 jobs.  QUOTABLE QUOTES:  Robert Bonner ��� Old Socred  and present B.C.Hydro  chairman.  "The static economy in  B.C. comes partly from thc  failure of the mining industry to get back on its feet."  Tom Waterland ��� Socred  Forest Minister.  On January 3, 1978 in the  Merritt Herald, Waterland  said, "No new copper smelters are needed in B.C.!"  Alibi   Bill   Bennett   -   On  September 9.  1975 he said,  PRESENTING  The First Annual  SUNSHINE COAST HISTORICAL CALENDAR  ds*#  Ihis   attractive   Il"xl2'/i"   calendar   contains  twelve   individual   historic   photographs   of  the  Sunshine   Coasl   dating from 1900   to   the   mid-  thirties.All   handsomely   primed   iu   sepia   tones  on high grade paper.

(Vancouver Sun,  September 10,1975.)  THE GRANDUC CLOSURE:  The Granduc Mine which  closed this year is in the At-  lin riding held by Socred  MLA Frank Calder. Calder  who usually hibernates between elections and during  legislative sessions, was  blamed by his own government  for doing  nothing  to  try and prevent the closure.  On May 25 this year, NDP  MLA Graham Lea was questioning Don Phillips, Minister  of Economic Development,  about the closure. Part of  Phillips' answer follows:  Hon. Mr. Phillips: "I also  want to inform the House that  the member for that constituency hasn't been in contact with the ministry to offer  any alternatives or suggestions, and 1 would suggest  that if he's really as concerned  please tnm to page sixteen  BC Classifieds  HOUSE FOR SALE: Chilliwack.  treed, fenced property.

(Hansard, May 25,  1978.)  True, Phillips was in his  usual state of confusion, deluding himself that Lea was  the MLA for Atlin, but his  answer confirmed Calder's  complete lack of interest in  the loss of the Granduc jobs.  Calder had done nothing.  URANIUM MINING:  U.S. President Jimmy  Carter decided to halt uranium development because of  the health risks involved. The  Socreds who feel money is  more important, were gung  ho to allow the first uranium  mine in Clearwater. A recent  Royal Commission in Ontario  found 81 uranium miners at  Elliot Lake died of lung  cancer up to 1974 and ten have  died since.  Socred Mines Minister Jim  Chabot dismissed as a waste  of money a suggestion that an  environmental study be done  before going ahead. (Victoria  Colonist, December 15, 1977.)  The B.C. Medical Association has called for a full scale  enquiry into the health hazards and public opposition in  the area is solid.  Public demonstrations  against thc mine were dismissed by Minister Chabot as  "A socialist front".  Then, with election rumours  flying, the Socreds went into  reverse. On September 28,  Environment Minister Nielsen announced a public enquiry before any development.  Sounds like a good death  bed repentance���however,  the enquiry won't be until  "next year", "the government will name the persons  to run the enquiry" (watch for  Socred hacks) and, wait for  it, "1 do not know if the  government will agree to be  bound by findings of the  enquiry," said Nielsen.  Translation���"If we win an  election the mine will go  ahead regardless". You can't  trust three dollar Bill.  ROYALTIES:  Don't gct confused on Ihis  issue. The Socreds did nol  abolish all "royalties". The  royalty system still applies to  coal. ' When the NDP left  ollice the coal royalty was  $1.50 per ton and Dave  Barrett had announced it  would go up lo $2.50 per ton in  1976.  The only significant coal  producer is Kaiser Resources.  Their- profits reached $57.2  million in 1977, and Kaiser is  now selling its coal to Japan  for $59.60 per ton, compared  with $18.73 per ton in 1972.  They can obviously afford to  pay more, but the Socreds  have left this royalty at  $1.50 per ton. As coal production has been approximately  9 million tons per year since  1975, the Socreds' tax gift to  the mine owners has been  some $13.5 million per year.  Taxes on the people have been  raised to make up this loss.  NDP DOUBLE PRODUCTION  Alex    Macdonald,    MLA.  quoted figures in the House   billion."

Spokesperson Cindy Hale  commented, "Just when  women are gaining a foothold  in the labour movement, longstanding rights of workers arc  being arbitrarily revoked."  By emergency resolution,  the convention demonstrated  opposition to Bill C-28 and Bill  C-8 as direct attacks on the  public sector employees' right  to strike and to free collective  bargaining.  Over 200 women representing fifty B.C. women's groups  from points as distant as  Prince Rupert, Dawson Creek,  and Smithers came together  for the four-day convention  held at Capilano College,  Vancouver, November 10���13.  Hale said, "It was an exciting convention with women  from all over B.C. demanding  equality more strongly than  ever.
