Array The Sunshine  legislative library  parliaments buUdfies  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15$ per copy on news stands  Second Class Mall Registration No. 4702  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  Delivered to every address on the Coast.  November 6, 1979  Volume 33, Number 45  s^amwrnmrnrnmaamama  alty candidates plentiful this year  Mayor Lome Blain is completing his first term as Mayor  of Gibsons. Before his retirement about five years ago,  Lorne was chairman of the  ferry workers local here and  vice-president of the provincial  union of 1900 members. When  Lorne lived in Nelson about 12  years ago, he was a member of  Kiwanis, and served a term of  office as chairman of the city's  Red Feather campaign. Lome  was terminal manager for  Langdale, Saltery Bay and  Earl's Cove with a staff of 40  until his retirement.  Mayor Blain told the Coast  News, "As Mayor of the Village  of Gibsons, I am not a committee chairman, and so I do not  initiate action on any one  project other than to suggest to  committees some possible  courses to take. Because I have  followed my belief in the good  effects of delegating responsibility, this has been, in my  opinion, a very productive  Council. We have.forinsta'nce,  established weekly garbage  pick-up by contract, and we  have participated in the R.R.A.  P. program which, through  grants and loans, aids homeowners to repair and recondition their properties. This has  been a special benefit to our  senior citizens in Gibsons. And  the final large extension of our  sewer system, the Bluff area,  now only awaits final approval  from Victoria.  -*I would like to point out that  the platform set out in my  ! campaign for Mayor two years  ago has been kept to the letter.  We have established better  working relations with the  Regional   District  where  we  have, for example, negotiated  an agreement to carry regional  water in our Reed Road line so  that the Regional District can  service North Road and vicinity. And we are negotiating a  sewer agreement whereby  Langdale sewage will be treated  in our plant.  "In addition to our present  park and recreational facilities,  I would like to see a treed park,  say a wider development of the  woodland area where the new  Inglis walking trail is situated  near Charman Creek. I am  hopeful, too, that we can  negotiate with local Areas E  and F for common support of  recreational facilities like the  pool and sports fields and so  save the need for duplication.  "Zoning is working to the  general benefit of all. There is a  matter related to this subject  that I take a stand on and that  is, while there is an abundance  Of serviced lots already available in the Village through  private development, there is  no need for the Municipality to  get into the development  business and turn public land  into subdivisions.  "There is some doubt of  regulatory bylaws, such as anti-  noise, being practical as far as  enforcement goes, and to what  extent the court will back us up  if we do lay charges. This will  require some careful study.  "I feel the Marina committee  has done a commendable job in  preparing for the referendum. I  back the idea of a self-  supporting Marina, as does  Council. The project depends  upon funding by Federal and  Provincial governments. The  Village share of the cost will be  repaid from Marina revenues  over a period of years. I am not  in favour of the Village operating the Marina. The Marina  should be operated as a concession by a private operator.  On shore the Village does not at  present have enough property  for parking but we do have  space* at Prowse Road for  Marina amenities like showers,  washrooms, offices. I faVour  selling our present waterfront  property and buying cheaper  land further away in the Bay  area for the onshore requirements of the Marina. In the  past two years Council has  established a good line of  communication with the Village office, and I think we have  a smooth running operation  with staff morale at a high level.  "The immediate needs in our  future are an upgrading of the  roads in the Village, and an  extension of the house numbering system, and, as I have  mentioned before, the development of park area."  For the past three years  I-OFrainc Goddard has been an  alderman in. the Village of  Gibsons and has served as  finance chairman of Council as  well as Deputy Mayor. As.  finance chairman she has been  responsible for drawing up the  budget and for personnel  matters such as staff salaries.  Between 1974-77, Mrs. Goddard was a member of the  board of St. Mary's Hospital  and some years ago she served  as the secretary of the Chamber  of Commerce for one year. She  is at present the chairman of the  Union Board of Health which  deals with public health affairs  In Powell River, the Sunshine  Coast and Squamish. During  tfie three years that she has  been on this Board, Mrs.  Goddard has seen the decision  made to move the headquarters  staff to offices in Gibsons  within the next two years.  Lorraine and her husband,  Ken, have operated ladies'  fashion centres in the district  for the past 11 years.  When I was first elected  alderman in 1976, I was  appointed chairman of the  Parks and Recreation Committee," said Mrs. Goddard in  interview, "and found that the  previous Council had obtained  an N.D.P. grant with which to  build a swimming pool. I was  therefore responsible for recommending to Council that  the pool be a covered, year  round facility. The swimming  pool is part of the recreation  which Gibsons provides for its  taxpayers from the tiny tots to  senior citizens. Although it is a  very expensive part it does  serve a lot of people���over  4000 average attendance a  month. Because of this we  haven't made all the recreational improvements, that we  would like. But since the work  crew has been busy with other  projects like water services, we  have not used thc money  budgeted for this year to  improve Brothers Park ball-  fields. I have asked that this  money  be  Transferred  to  a  reserve fund for Brothers Park.  And next year, if I'm on  Council, I will ask for a similar  budget like this year's so that  the drainage under the ball-  fields can be done by contract  after tenders are submitted. I  would hope this would be done  by thc time the season begins.  Following that I would like to  see more bleachers, a change  room, and better provision for  parking. There has been some  suggestion that negotiations be  begun with Areas E and F to  share in recreational costs of  facilities that we all use. I would  support this co-operation,  since it would mean more and  better facilities for everyone.  "About anti-noise bylaws,"  continued Mrs. Goddard, "I  would like very much to have  one in Gibsons but thc difficulties of enforcement have  presented problems. Since the  R.C.M.P. does not enforce  bylaws, a Village the size of  ours will have a pretty big bill  to foot if it hires its own  enforcement force.  "Yes, I think zoning has  served to protect residential  areas from commercial and  industrial use, and has set the  same standards for everyone.  The intent of development  regulations is to place the cost  of the project at the developer's  door and not at the taxpayer's.  But the regulations and the  zoning bylaws are not carved in  granite. They can and they  should be updated everv three  to  five  years  as  conditions  change.  "And the future for Lower  Gibsorts? The recently, constructed new building on the  All Sports Marine site is a good  example of what can be done in  Lower Gibsons. There is one  proposal for further development that I am aware of, now in  the planning stage. I believe  that Council must enforce its  regulations to protect taxpayers' rights, but must lay out  conditions that are not so  stringent as to discourage redevelopment.  "Like anyone else I support  the Marina project on the  principle it does not cost taxes  to run it. We do know that  Marinas in Comox and in  Powell River, now that moorage has been increased, are  paying propositions. We do  have a good solid study of the  Marina project to refer to and if  the voters give the go ahead and  the Marina gets underway with  aid from senior governments,  we will then have to decide how  to operate it. The two options  are Municipal management Or  by contract with a private  operator. We would study  these two options carefully  before taking a course of  action."  Bus drivers  have  support  At the request of the parents  of Port Mellon the Coast News  would like to clear up a  misunderstanding which arose  as i result of our report on the  School Board meeting held two  weeks ago,  Sharon Astler, speaking on  behalf of the Port Mellon  parents, stressed that an unfortunate mistake had been  made In the report and that  contrary to the impression left  the Port Mellon parents were  entirely satisfied with the school  bus drivers presently on their  route, nameiy Mike Danroth  and Doug Pepper.  Incumbent, Mayor Harold  Nelson is running for reelection to the office of Mayor  in the elections coming up this  month in Sechelt. Nelson hu  served on the Village Council  for the past 12 years and hu  been the Mayor of Sechelt for  the last six.  Mayor Nelson was born in.  Ontario but has lived on the  Sunshine Coast since 1928,  growing up in West Sechelt. He  has been a resident of the  Village of Sechelt since 1948.  He is employed by B.C. Hydro  as a sub-foreman lineman. He  and his wife Catherine have  three children, one married  daughter and a daughter and a  son at home.  In discussing the problems  presently facing the Village of  Sechelt, the Mayor said that  some proper way had to be  found to support the Sechelt  Arena. He felt that boundary  expansion would come but felt  it would be better if the  expansion were promoted by  Victoria rather than by local  politicians. "If Victoria promotes it we would be a better  community," said the Mayor.  The Mayor said the Village  was in real need of such things  as storm sewers. "We have to  have storm sewers before we  can upgrade our streets."  Mayor. Nelson said that he  felt before expansion ' the  Village should have an agreement with Victoria, "which has  been done elsewhere" with  regard to provincial maintenance of the roads for a time.  "Agreement must be reached  with Victoria before the fact of  expansion," said Nelson.  Among the facilities that  Mayor Nelson would like to see  in Sechelt would be a curling  rink and a community hall.  "These are very desirable but  very expensive."  The Mayor also pointed out  that there have been in the  plans for some time a small  marina on the shoref ront with a  public launching ramp. "There  would have to be public access  to a ramp behind a sheltering  breakwater,"  said Nelson.  "That would do more for  Sechelt's tourism than anything else."  On the subject of the controversial service retail complex,  Mayor Nelson said that he  could see no reason why the  requisite rezoning should not  go through. "Eventually that  area will be surrounded by  main roads and highways, and  our small business men should  be looked after." Mayor Nelson  said that right now you can buy  anything you want locally but  that getting it serviced was a  different story.  Mayor Nelson expressed  himself as still being in favour  of the Joint Office facility  which has been discussed  throughout the past summer.  "It still makes sense to me.  There are three governmental  bodies needing such things as a  large board room and offices  and it makes sense, since they  all go to the taxpayer for  money, for facilities to be  shared where possible."   Bud Koch has thrown his hat  in the ring in the election for  Sechelt's' Mayor. He operates  the successful G.M. dealership  in Sechelt, Sunshine G.M. He  has been a 10 year resident of  Sechelt, is married with three  children, all of whom are  employed in the family business.  Koch is in favour of Village  expansion. He said that natural  growth was. on its way in  Sechelt and that the tax base  must be larger. "The size of  the Village has to be increased,"  said Koch.  "We would all like to live in  Utopia but to co-exist we have  to make some trade-offs to get  the tax money we need to  operate the Village, build  sidewalks, provide street lights,  etc." Koch pointed out that  there was in the Village a lot of  people on fixed incomes who  could not afford a large  increase in their taxes. "Immediate steps have to be taken  to protect these people."  Koch is of the opinion that  the present Council has provided yeoman service with  what they had to work with.  "We now have a very competent clerk and planner which  should prove of great benefit to  the incoming Council."  Another area of top concern  for Koch is the area of recreation. "We are sadly lacking  recreaction facilities or entertainment of any kind for our  youngsters. I am sure that with  good management the arena  can be put to much more  complete use for youngsters  and seniors alike." Koch said  that the upcoming arena referendum would add only about  $8.00 to the tax bill on a  $100,000 home. "It's very little  to contribute for this facility."  Koch feels that tourism  could be close to the No. I  industry on the Sunshine  Coast. He said that the Coast  does not have enough hotels or  motels as yet and ventured the  opinion that in the future  tourist-derived revenue could  reach ten times the present  level.  Koch pointed out that he had  started his automotive business  with his son just nine years ago  and at the present time the  business employed 35 people.  "Obviously we have been  keeping a lot of dollars here  that used to go to Vancouver. I  am a very strong advocate of  dealing locally in every aspect,"  said Koch.  The candidate envisioned a  boardwalk built along the  Sechelt waterfront. "With the  co-operation of the large  logging companies we could  build it with cedar. We have  enough people in Sechelt who  care that something really  constructive could be done."  The closing concerns of the  candidate in the interview were  for the young and the old. "In  any endeavours we should  always keep in mind our senior  citizens and our young people."  Punctuating his remarks as he  talked were the pictures of what  he referred to as 'my six little  vice-presidents' on the wall of  his office. They were his  grandchildren.  Jack Marshal has been  alderman and Gibsons' representative at Regional District  for the past two years, topping  the poll for aldermen in the last  election. Jack has been in  business in Gibsons for over 33  years as tradesman and contractor in plumbing. He and his  brother began with Marshal's  Hardware, and later Jack, with  two other partners formed  Peninsula Plumbing which was  sold some seven years ago.  Since then Jack has continued  on his own in the servicing and  repair of plumbing in the  district.  Jack has in the past been a  member of Kinsmen, and was  at one tittle president for two  years of the Chamber of  Commerce. He has been a  member of the Canadian  Legion for 33 years and in  World War II served overseas  in Italy.  About parks and recreation  in Gibsons and district, Jack  told the Coast news, "We have  fine facility in our swimming  pool, but the expense we have  there keeps us from expanding  and developing other facilities  to the extent that we would like  to. I would hope that we can  negotiate with Areas E and F  for a specified area funding so  that other facilities like ball  fields can be developed to a  much higher standard than is  the case now.  "For Lower Gibsons I see the  need for more of the retail  services that we used to have  and I have encouraged the  suggestion by some developers  that a mini-mall be developed  somewhere in the Lower Village area.  "I certainly support the  Marina project and repeat that  it is based on getting funding  from senior governments. But I  would say that we have to have  along with the project, the upgrading of the facilities for  commercial vessels. That needs  to be part of the project too  when we look for assistance  from senior governments. I do  say that the Marina management should be done on  contract with a private experienced operator. This way  the Village can recover its  outlay of funds at the least  expense.  "As chairman of public  works, I am proud lo point out  what has been accomplished in  up dating our water system in  the past two years. We now  have 3-phase power which is  less expensive in the long run  for the greater power it provides  our pumping system.  I have guarded Gibsons  autonomy while serving on the  Regional District Board and I  have at thc same time kept my  campaign platform promise to  be co-operative.  J. Mervyn Boucher of Sechelt is a self-confessed underdog in the race for Mayor in the  Village of Sechelt elections this  year. Boucher is a practising  lawyer in Vancouver who is  retiring from the practice of law  at the end of this month. He Has  practised law in Vancouver for  thirty years.  Boucher, a veteran of the  Second World War, was bom  on a farm, one often children,  in Western Ontario. He came  with his family to British  Columbia at the age often. He  began the practice of law in the  Cariboo and beside a life-long  activity in various Bar Associations was a recent president of  the Seymour Golf and Country  Club in North Vancouver.  "I had no idea until very  recently of running for Mayor,"  said Boucher, "but I've been  getting a little alarmed at the  way the Village was being  administered." Boucher in  particular mentioned a public  meeting this past summer when  five separate rezoning applications were presented on the  same evening and the chairman  of the Village Committee  refused to allow questions from  the floor.  "At this particular stage in  the Village's development the  position of Mayor should not  be a part-time job," said  Boucher. "If elected I intend to  be available to the public with  regular office hours. That's the  , way a Village should be mn."  In discussing the potential of  the  tourist  industry locally,  Boucher observed "The Almighty has given us a beautiful  spot and we are not taking  advantage of it." Boucher said  that he was in favour of  encouraging the private sector  to get part of the $800 million  that Vancouver got this year.  "Tourism is the third largest  industry in British Columbia  and the province is just now  where California was at the  turn of the century."  Boucher said, "what wc need  is a concerted movement  between Gibsons, Sechelt and  Pender Harbour to develop  tourist industry. The whole  area benefits from the tourist  dollar."  On the question of Village  zoning, Boucher stressed that  he was very much in favour of  keeping the Village's prime  residential areas as residential  areas.  The candidate pointed out  the Sechelt area is not a  desirable site for the location of  secondary industry. "Whether  we like it or not we are on an  Island," said Boucher, "and  anyone who is pursuing secondary industry is simply un  aware of basic economics."  "Boucher said that lottery  dollars were available for such  projects as developing some  beach areas. He suggested that  groups of young people could  be employed to maintain and  police the project.  On the question of Village  expansion, Boucher observed  that expansion to include West  Sechelt and Davis Bay seemed  inevitable. "We could add to  our tax base without the cost of  putting in services," he said.  J. Mervyn Boucher has been  married to "the same charming  girl for 30.years". His wife's  name is Mardi.  He speculated that his lack of  direct political experience  could prove something of an  asset.. "We have to bring  democracy back to health in  Sechelt," said the 'underdog  candidate'.  Pesticide experiment  in local lake  Gibsons Wildlife Club last  wee k p rotested by letter to Rafe  Mair, Minister of Environ-'  ment,' over the proposed  experimental use ofa smail lake  on the Sechelt Peninsula as a  testing ground for a S.F.U.  project involving a toxic  chemical. The text of the letter  is as follows:  Dear Sir,  Recently we had it brought  to our attention that a project  to be carried out by the B.C.  Forest Service in collaboration  with Simon Fraser University  will involve a small lake named  Lei Like on the Sechelt  Peniniisla and that it is about to  be put into operation.  The program apparently  involves the use of the chemical  Orthene which we banned in  the Fraser Valley recently for  the control of spruce bud  worms after objections by the  public sector and others, and  also for the recent controversial  gypsy moth infestation in  Vancouver.  lt is our understanding that  the project was motivated and  planned by the B.C. Forest  Services Chief Forest  Protection Officer for the  Vancouver District, Mr. Ted  McArthur. Meetings have been  held with the Sechelt Forest  Ranger and the area has been  visited and approved by  Professor Oloffs of S.F.U.,who  has a grant from Chevron, the  manufacturers of Ortheoe, to  conduct these experiments. A  recreation reserve has been put  on the area by the B.C. Forest  Service   and  $1,600   of  recreation funds were spent  towards the building of a trail  or road into the lake. A timber  sale by MacMillan Bloedel was  turned down on the grounds  that this was a pristine natural  area and was not to be logged.  It is our understanding that a  small sized lake similar in all  respects environmentally in the  B.C. Forest Research Forest in  Haney is to be used as a control  site and close monitoring of  both lakes Will take place over a  period of years.  There has been no  correspondence with the  Sunshine Coast Regional  Board and wc assume that  legally, before any project like  this involving potentially  poisonous chemicals like  Orthene can bc used, a notice of  the intention must be posted in  a public place. As far as we are  aware, no such notice has been  posted.  We have been given to  understand that the chemical in  thc concentrations anticipated  will not be lethal to fish but we  are very concerned about the  effects on the food chain and  the environmental hazards  such a project may trigger. Thc  breakdown product of  Orthene, a chemical known as  "Monitor Four", is 46 times  more toxic than Orthene itself  and if it was introduced into  Sechelt Inlet via the creek  draining the lake, then any  bottom feeding life contacting  this lethal chemical would be  destroyed.

In all the articles  and editorials that are written each year  when November 11 comes around, the  civilians who arc the victims of war arc  ��� alien among thc forgotten.  Each year we pay tribute to the fallen  soldiers, as well we should, but nonetheless  it is an historic fact that thc history of  warfare in thc 20th Century has seen the  techniques of waging war shift drastically  from combat between military groups to  the systematic terrorization and extermination of civilian populations.  We have observed before that when the  Spanish Fascists machine gunned a  peaceful market village in the 1930's the  world was horrified that war should be  waged on thc unarmed, the young, the  elderly, womenfolk. By 1940 the systematic bombing of civilian populations had  become a central aspect of Hitler's war. By  1945 the Allies were bringing the war to an  end by thc total destruction of two  Japanese cities with all their civilian  inhabitants. And in the Vietnam war the  systematic bombing of peasants was the  principle method of waging war.  Thus, in a generation we have seen the  action of slaughtering civilians go from  one that aroused universal horror to  become the routine method of waging war.  Nor is there anything in the vast  stockpiles of nuclear weapons that are  stored against Armageddon an indication  of anything but that the wholesale  slaughtering of civilians is the central plan  of the nuclear powers in wartime. Topping  off this grisly march in the direction of  barbaric and indiscriminate slaughter is  the neutron bomb which will only affect  people and not their installations.  It is perhaps timely now when we  remember those fallen in war that we  remember the millions of non-uniformed  innocents who sought to march to no drum  nor kill any of their fellows but who fell  before the indiscriminate reaper of  mechanized war while they tilled their  fields or tended their families.  Perhaps this year when we bow our  heads in tribute to those who fell for their  country we can spare a thought for the  civilians who have died in increasing  numbers throughout this century as they  became the principal targets of warfare.  We are indebted to Ms. Klan for  pointing out to us this sadly and strangely  neglected aspect of modem warfare.  Congratulations to candidates  We would congratulate all those who  have come forward and let their names  stand lor election. Despite the prevailing  cynicism about politics and politicians, we  have found in the period in which we have  been watching closely the local political  scene that those who have held office  locally have been honest and well-  intentioned men and women.  We have not always agreed with all of  them on every issue but we have been  consistently impressed with the hours of  hard work they are prepared to do on  behalf of their communities and with the  generally high level of selfless integrity they  have brought to their tasks.  We would wish all the aspirants the best  of good luck and future judgement. If  elected, you will often find the business of  governing to be a thankless task but the  system of freely elected governments under  which we live can only be operative if  members of the community are willing to  come forward ready to serve if chosen.  That willingness has already earned you  our gratitude.  Irresponsible and pathetic  We try as best we can to live at peace with  our journalistic neighbours but, really, we  must go into print with our objections to  thc latest effort in the direction of  irresponsible misrepresentation to  emanate from a source not unnoted for it  heretofore. To attempt an objective poll of  the readership of three papers in the pages  of one of them is an obvious absurdity. We  challenge the purported findings.  Let us hear first of all how many people  bothered with the silly exercise. We are  willing to wager that closer to one percent  of the potential readership than ten percent  were involved in the 'findings'and it would  take documented evidence to persuade us  otherwise. We find as wc distribute our  newspaper in the Post Offices of the  Sunshine Coast that it is precisely the  paper which published the questionnaire  which is still sitting in Ihe Post Office a  week after it has come out.  If Richard T. Proctor wants to do a  readership survey we are willing to put up  one third of the cost of hiring a Vancouver  firm to do a thorough and an objective  survey. We doubt that he will accept the  offer. He dare not.  Alternately, if this suggestion does not  come as too much of a shock to the man  whose principal claim to fame is that he  introduced the giveaway newspaper to the  Sunshine Coast, we are willing effective  January 1 to go paid distribution in  company with the other two newspapers  and at the end of six months there will be  the clearest possible indication of who is  reading what by way of the paid  subscription figures.  If the perpetrator of the questionnaire  and its alleged findings is unwilling to  accept these challenges he should drop his  pathetic pretensions immediately.  .from the files of the COAST NEWS  r m  FIVE YEARS AGO  Larry Labonte receives a plaque in  recognition of 24 years of supportive  service for ihe Gibsons Athletic  Association.

Gibsons's Landing, November 11,1934. What with D-Day anniversaries  and a seemingly endless series of documentaries on World War II, the  War of 1914-1918 tends to be pushed into limbo. Forty-five years ago, to  the survivors pictured here, who had fought in it twenty years before,  this was the Great War���the war to end all wars. Some had been gassed,  many bore scars from old wounds. All had lost comrades at arms in the  global conflict. They had formed Branch 109 of the Canadian Legion  out of ambivalent feelings of recollection and rejection of their war.  Here at their new hall, east of Howe Sound School, they pose, some with  their medals and some without, along with former war nurses and  members of the ladies' auxiliary, to commemorate the occasion.

They did so  convinced that the game was as  good as over and to get a jump  on the post-game traffic jam. fe  Of course, as every hockey B  fan knows, the Canucks stunned the Bruins and delighted  the fans still in attendance by  courageously battling back  with three goals in the last five  minutes to tie the game.  Now, I am convinced that  somewhere in the 6,000 fans  who left early, there was a  young fellow, perhaps at his  first hockey game, maybe  wearing a Canuck sweater. For  52 minutes he sat by the side of  his father or his uncle, his eyes  glued to the ice, convinced that  the experts were wrong and his  team was going to beat the big  bad Bruins from Boston.  When Boston scored their  third goal the young fellow's  mentor decided the game was  over and they might just as well  leave and beat the traffic. The  protestations of the young  hopeful were cut short and he  was led from the rink with his  head turned back for the last  glimpse of the action and the  beginning of the uprising he  knew was coming.  He had just reached the outer  corridors of thc Coliseum when  the first roar went up signalling  the fact that Vancouver had  scored. They were approaching  the car in the parking lot when  the second roar signalled the  second Vancouver goal and  had just turned thc radio on in  the car in time to hear the  commentator scream into the  third and loudest roar that  Thomas Giadin had scored the  equalizer.  With hurt and unforgiving  eyes the youngster turned to the  man behind thc wheel. He  knew they shouldn't have given  up. They should have stayed  with their team to thc end  hoping for miracles till the final  whistle. He knew it all along.  Thirty-five years ago I was  such a youngster. I remember it  clearly. My brother had taken  me to a Junior Cup tie in  Cambuslang, a part of Glasgow, where the Muirkirk  Juniors���our team��� were  playing thc Cambuslang  Rovers. It was a dour, hard-  fought match on a grey cold  day and ten minutes from time  Cambuslang scored to go  ahead 2-0 and my brother,  fifteen years my senior, decided  enough was enough and I was  dragged protesting from the  park to 'beat the crowd'.  Jock Inglis was the Muirkirk  centre-forward, a short dumpy  fellow shaped like a fire  hydrant who couldn't do much  on a soccer field except put the  ball in the net. He did so, we  were told, just as we left the  park, and then again after we  had left and the game was tied  and a replay was needed���the  first of several.  I never quite forgave my  brother for making me leave  early, the thought still rankles,  and ever since I have stayed to  the end hoping for miracles,  knowing that they happen and  determined not to miss a-  nother.  And so I empathize with the  little fellow in the Canuck  hockey sweater who missed the  last glorious five minutes of last  Friday's hockey game. I am  sure he will grow to manhood,  like myself, determined never  to lose faith, never to miss  another miracle, and with the  deep-rooted conviction that  those in command are often  wrong.  And since we are on the  subject of hockey and sticking  with it to the end, let's pay  respectful tribute to the grand  old man of ice-hockey, surely  one of the most remarkable  athletes in thc history of  athletic endeavour, the one, the  only Gordie Howe.  Just about the time I was  being dragged protesting from  that soccer match in Glasgow,  some 35 years ago, thc pride of  Floral, Saskatchewan was  breaking into major league  hockey a few months short of  his eighteenth birthday. Hc has  been at it with distinction ever  since, despite a near fatal  accident that fractured his skull  early in his career.  Friday night, back again in  the N.H.L. and playing for the  Hartford Whalers, the incredible Mr. Howe scored two goals  and set up two others as one of  the W.H.L. transplants stuck it  to the Maple Leafs for the  second game in a row. It was  the third goal in the two games  for the 51 year old grandfather.  What made it particularly  sweet for hockey watchers is  that Howe did it to Harold  Ballard's team. A year or two  ago when Howe scored his  1,000th goal in professional  hockey while playing in the  W.H.L., Ballard refused to  flash the news to the hockey  crowd in Maple Leaf Gardens.  "Howe," said Ballard, "is an old  man playing in a bush league."  Howe answered him eloquently  on the ice last week.  I first-saw Howe play in the  mid-fifties for Detroit Red  Wings against the Montreal  Canadians in the Montreal  Forum. Rocket Richard, who  like Howe wore the number 9  on his sweater, was closing out  his great career and the argument raged as to which of the  ' two great right wings was the  greater. I was a Richard man  and a Montreal fan in those  years and I watched Richard's  rival with great, though untutored care in that first game.  Halfway through the game I  knew Richard was the better,  all beetle-browed, glaring  determination and spectacular  rushes. To my eyes Howe did  very little and I was disappointed. In the second period  he picked up a loose puck at the  blue line and without apparent  effort fired a wrist shot that no  one in the building saw but  heard it rattle off the post  behind a motionless Jacques  Plante. There was in the  movement all the deceptive  languor and sudden speed of a  striking snake and I have been  re-evaluating Gordie Howe  ever since.  Thc secret of Howe's a-  mazing athletic longevity is  that he has always been the  master of economy of effort.  Never a motion is wasted. Not  primarily a goal scorer, he has  scored more goals than anyone  else. Not primarily a fighter, he  is arguably the best fighter  hockey has ever seen. One last  recollection as illustration of  the Howe style.  When hc was 35 and a  veteran of the N.H.L. his  reputation as a tough customer  had left him unchallenged for  years. Leaping Louie Fon-  tinato, then of the New York  Rangers, was a new and  ebullient defenccman who was  terrorizing the league in the  manner of today's Tiger Williams or Stan Jonathan. Finally  the day came when Louie  challenged the big guy, A  routine collison behind the net  before thc rabid New York fans  and Louie theatrically dropped  his gloves and challenged  Howe. The crowd roared in  exultation and Louie made the  mistake of playing to the  crowd. Just for a split-second  after the challenge he basked in  the roar of the crowd. Howe  dropped one glove and broke  his nose, picked up his glove  and skated sheepishly to the  penalty box. It was a much-  subdued Fontinato who came  out of hospital three weeks  later.*  So here's to Gordie Howe.  Living proof that miracles  endure and endure to thc end.  It starts about a week early. Elementary school children beg for ;  money for a poppy, dimly aware that it has something to do with  soldiers killed in a war somewhere.

Obviously, civilians suffered the  greatest losses.  But where are the monuments to the families who were wiped out  during the Battle of Britian? Who fires salutes to the men, women  and children who were exterminated in the Dresden fire bombings?  Who exhorts us to remember the one million Chinese civilians who  died in World War II? Or those families whose Polynesian paradise  turned into hell when the bombs landed? Who calls the roll of the  small Norwegian community (four old men, 10 women, seven  children and a small baby) who starved to death one winter while  their men fought in the resistance? The list goes on: Hull, Trieste,  Ploeste. "Let's make hamburger out of Hamburg".  Tell me of the hardships of the frozen German retreat from Russia  and I will tell you of one and a half million civilians who starved to  death in Leningrad���with no retreat possible. Tell me ofa convoy  crew, nerves taut in anticipation of U-boat attacks, and I will tell you  of helpless Newcastle mothers and children crouched under a  stairway wondering if the next bomb will be closer. You speak of tbe  slaughter at Normandy and Dieppe, shells exploding, death ill  around. Have you forgotten Warsaw, then?  Is the death ofa minesweeper crew more significant than the death  of a Chinese community? Is the destruction of a military tank crew  more memorable than a family burned to death in Germany? Are the ,  children who perished in a bombarded Japanese school less worthy of  a 21 gun salute than the bomber crew?  This is not to say that the business of being a soldier Is a shameful  thing���the shameful thing is having to need soldiers at all. Certainly^  men on both sides fought bravely, for whatever causes they sought to _  defend, and they should be���and are���remembered.  But with what are the fallen civilians commemorated? There are  monuments to the dead in Auschwitz and Hiroshima, to be sure, but'  we are not asked to remember these or any other civilian victims  during Remembrance Day. More appropriate memories are chosen  for us.  Remembrance Day services will never be truly meaningful unless '  we also have a monument to the Unknown Civilian. As well as having '  civilians place wreaths on military monuments let us have the  military place wreaths on memorials to the civilian casualties. This  should be a world wide occasion, bringing all nations together in*'  remembering just what war is all about.

This does not include  the taxpayers of Gibsons  embarking on a $2 million  Marina.  As this hastily conceived  vepture is pushed rapidly  towards a referendum, there  are many questions come to  mind. Marinas are not a money  making venture in the private  sector and yet we are to embark  on this project advised that our  taxes will not increase. They  certainly will increase. The  future will certainly see zoning  changes in the area of the  Marina and can we be sure our  taxes will not go up? Why  should the small population of  Gibsons take this risk in order  to benefit those few merchants  in Lower Gibsons who imagine  th(ir businesses will boom with  a Marina? Why should we  sacrifice our beautiful bay and,  more important, our tax dollars to become a recreation  center for Vancouver.  There must be guarantees in  money and contracts to demonstrate a need for a Marina.  Are these available? Why is  private enterprise not willing to  undertake a project of this  magnitude?  Boating is a luxury and  certainly patterns of use will  change dramatically with the  increased shortage of fuel. This  plan seems to have evolved  with little or no understanding  of this.  How will one hundred jobs  be generated by a Marina  unless the figures are exaggerated by counting each  transient job in the construction of such an edifice.  It seems to me that the  taxpayers of the Village of  Gibsons, small in number, are  Marina questioned  Editor:  On November 17 we are  being asked to vote on a  referendum for a permanent  Marina in Gibsons Harbour. 1  object to the wording of this, as  a )io vote to the new Marina  proposal should not signify a  negative approach to any  progress for marine facilities. *�� tptbtf&plfedfl ���Wrtplaysrti-it  tourist boats travel well  stocked with provisions and  that any local items brought  home create a problem for  small storage compartments  already well filled.

An undertaking  which will benefit the boating  population of the Lower Mainland, the boating population of  the Regional District and with  no risk attached to them. It is  well understood that more  room is needed for fishing  boats, tugboats and local boat  owners and the present facilities should be expanded to  satisfy these needs. There must  be moderation and not the  grandiose schemes with which  we're being bombarded now.  There are many more factors  which we must consider; the  environmental changes; the  pollution of the bay; and  changes in life style forced on  us by such irreversible and  expensive decisions.  Consider these ideas carefully while the choice is yours.  Roy Cline, M.D.  sent facilities including the  breakwater.  6. "nothing to lose and tomorrow to gain". With the  thousands of dollars already  spent on feasibility studies  and at a cost of $1.66 million  to build, I guestion that  statement,  I also question which con-  incredible  Editor:  It seems incredible to me that  the Marina Committee is going  ahead with plans for a 438  berth Marina for Gibsons  Harbour when we have the  concern of rising energy prices  and possible downturns of the  economy.  The possibility of the Marina  being self-supporting with  moorage alone to me is ridiculous. There are Marinas in the  Lower Mainland that have up  to 60% vacancies. If these and  other Marinas were to depend  on moorage alone, they would  be facing bankruptcy.  I am an ex-marina owner and  operator and I believe my  experience in the industry has  left me with a fair knowledge. If  a Marina is such a good  financial venture in Gibsons,  why not turn it over to private  enterprise? I would again  suggest on moorage alone there  would be no interest in the  private sector.  I am not against the idea of  upgrading the moorage facilities in Gibsons. I believe we can  improve and enlarge thepresent  facilities much more economically and supply a sufficient  amount of moorage for our  people at much less expense to  the taxpayer. With the rising  birt rather a more realistic view  of-improving upon what already exists here.  Consider these points:  l.'"ease congestion for both  'recreational and commercial boats from Government  'WharF. Congestion could  'be eased at much less cost by  'expanding existing wharf to  'accomodate more fishermen, tugboats, recreational  'boaters and live aboards by  'implementing more berths  'and upgrading those now in  ���use.  2. "inject new life into Lower  'Gibsons". Hardly a true  'picture when new Marina  will be located blocks away  from Lower Gibsons business centre. Our present  wharf is now located In  'Lower Gibsons; why move  the marine traffic further  'away if our aim is to  stimulate its growth?  3. .-"attract more tourist dollars". Not when you con  sider that the majority of  during construction and  after "for operation". The  fact is that we have little or  no pile driving and heavy  duty marine equipment  needed for such a large  undertaking, I cannot imagine who would benefit  during construction. How  many people will be employed for a short time  before reasonable, working  wages cause too high labor  costs for amount brought in  and consequently, lay-offs?  When you consider that  employment could have  been helped years ago with  the hiring of local people for  consistent maintenance and  repair of the government  wharf, why wasn't it done  then?  "upgrade the safety of all  marine traffic in the Harbour". There again, all that  is needed is proper maintenance and patrol of the  Harbour, as well as upgrading and extending pre-  cerned taxpayers and residents  paid foiv/two.1 full page ads in���. cost of,living, we do not need  our local papers on the Marina any further increase in our  proposal. i Wes.

With the bank lending  rate today at 15% and the price  of gas increasing constantly,  are people still going to be  buying boats?  When asked at a Council  meeting why private enterprise  wquldn't fund this project, the  answer was that private enterprise wouldn't touch it! As the  Marina operator in Point  Roberts said as he declared  bankruptcy, "I blame it on the  state of the Canadian dollar".  No increase in our taxes the  Village and Chamber of Commerce tell us? Could it be that  this is the whole truth? Even  suppose we "only" have to  bctrow 10% of $2 million;  wHere is that magic money  coming from?

This camp was located on Coal Harbour near  the foot of Bidwcll Street.  The remainder of the estate,  extending from Nicola Street lo  Stanley park, was logged and  cleared by Phillip Oben. Operations commenced here in the  spring of 188K and were  completed by I890. Oben  apparently used thc same camp  as McDougall, The difference  between these men and thc  Hastings crews was that they  were primarily concerned with  clearing the land for settlement.  A large gang of over I00  Chinamen followed the loggers, burning slash and laying  the country bare for building.  Anti-Oriental prejudice ran  rampant in these days and thc  Chinese were considered only  lit for such menial, coolie  chores. The loggers themselves  were invariably white.  The one other area not  directly controlled by the  Hastings Company was the  Granville reserve. This ran  from Lot I8l and 185,another  large portion of what now  constitutes downtown Vancouver. Angus Fraser apparently logged much of this area,  perhaps during a period of  conflict with thc Mill officials  for he was still associated with  the Hastings people at thc time.  But the records are sketchy at  most and manyconclusionsare  possible. No names are mentioned in connection with this  clearan''.-, so perhaps Fraser  was moonlighting.  This particular operation is  described very graphically by  W.H. Gallagher: "The timber  on the higher levels, that  section centered about the  Hotel Vancouver and the  Hudson's Bay was the choicest  stand of timber I have ever  seen. It grew very thickly and  tlw trees were enormous. One  Peter Trower  tree, which stood on Georgia  Street between Granville and  Seymour was 13 feet through at  the stump. Even at 200 feet  from the butt, it was three or  four feet in diameter. It is the  same tree which is shown in the  well known photograph of a  real estate office with a placard���VANCOUVER LOTS  FOR SALE. That was merelya  joke. Thc hollow butt which  forms the shelter of the supposed office was burned out in  thc fire of 1886. The burned  butt was cut off and the  remainder sawed into sections.  These were shipped to thc Old  Country, where the tree was  reassembled and put on exhibition. Thc tree was felled  along Georgia Street, northwest and south easterly."  "The men who cut down thc  forest where now stands the  most important business section of our city, roughly from  Cambie   to   Burrard   Street,  north and south between creek  and inlet, adopted the expedience of cutting the backs only  of the smaller trees and fallinga  large tree against them. The  whole thing would go down  with a  crash  like a row of  ninepins.   After the  first attempts at this system proved  successful,  they expanded  it  and as the falling progressed  south toward Davie Street���  they had started at Burrard  Inlet  and   worked  south���a  whole section of ten or more  acres would go down with one  sweeping crash. Thc axemen  cut the firs and cedars only. The  smaller   trees   were   knocked  down, crushed, smashed. There  were great numbers of vine  maple and many of these were  simply bent over, only to spring  back and stand erect again.  When the fire came, the Great  Fire, it was largely this abundance of slash, cut earlier in the  summer and very dry, which  caused it to blaze so fiercely. At  the time of the fire, the trees  were felled as far as Drake  Street with the exception of a  clump east of Homer Street  wher the C.P.R. had a reserve.  The fire in question was of  course, the famous holocaust  that   virtually   devoured   the  Village   of Granville   in   the  torrid summer of 1886. Again,  this  event  has  been  written  about   so   exhaustively   that  much further comment would  be superfluous. Suffice to say,  that it galloped through the  flimsy shacks a nd cabins of that  hard-won hamlet like a vengeful behemoth. It was as though  thc violated land was finally  striking  back against the  impertinent creatures who had  dared tosullyitsdomain. Many  died tragically, trapped in its  furious  path.  One family,  husband,   wife   and   daughter, were found dead in a well  where   they   had  apparently  taken  refuge in a desperate  attempt to escape the ravening  flames. They were unburned  but the harsh heat had sucked  the oxygen from their hiding  place, suffocating them. More  than  20 people died in the  relentless inferno and many  more  were  injured,  for the  struggling  settlers,  it was a  disaster of major proportions.  But  human  beings are  a  notoriously tenacious species.  Reconstruction was commenced almost before the ashes  were cold. Living in tents and  lean-tos, the burned out pioneers built again. This time  they  built  to  last.  Out  of  smoldering ruin, the true city of  Vancouver  rose defiantly,  spilled out over the burn into  the newly logged land.  It is 1898. Look down again  on what, only 25 years earlier,  was a rustling green blanket of  almost unbroken forest. Jerry  Rogers, Angus Fraser and the  tireless army of axemen and  bull-skinners they directed  have done their rugged work  well. The trees have been driven  back for miles in every direction. They will be driven  further. A gridwork of streets  lies on either side of False  Creek, now spanned by three  bridges and a railroad trestle  and the push continues east and  south. Some of the outlying  blocks are as yet unoccupied  but will not remain so for long.  The clearly defined city centre  still has Gastown as its axis but  the great, brick buildings of  commerce have already spread  halfway up Granville Street. In  the harbour, many ships, most  of them steamcraft now, crowd  the new dock complexes or wait  patiently for berths. Man has  won. He has sheared the dark  shores. He has made himself,  for better or worse, a city.  References:  Early Vancouver - Major J.S.  Matthews, V.C.

Susan Elek, Paula Sokol-Elliott and Anthony Elliott are  shown at the conclusion of their Countryside Concert  last Sunday.  Another fine concert  by Allan J. Crane  Sunday November 4  marked the return to the  Countryside Concerts of Anthony Elliott ('cello) and Susan  Elek (piano) together with  Paula Sokol-Elliott (violin)  appearing for the first time.  The concerts were again  enriched by Anthony Elliott's  remarks which contrasted the  two piano trios on the programme: that of Franz Joseph  Haydn, in G major No. 18, and  that of Ludwig Von Beethoven  No. 5(Op. 76H\)entitled,"The  Ghost".  There were one or two  uncomfortable moments in the  Haydn. It sounds deceptively  simple and easy compared to  the Beethoven trio, but the  music is technically demanding. The three musicians a-  chieved a good balance and  soon warmed up to the music.  They seemed particularly to  enjoy the second allegro move  ment but I thought the final  allegro could have had a little  more sparkle.  The three musicians were  much more effective in the  Beethoven, I thought, than they  were in the Haydn. Again a  good balance between the  instruments was achieved although there were some scale  passages into the piano's upper  register in the first movement  which could, I felt, have been  brought out more strongly. But  the playing in this movement  was brisk and accurate. The  blend of tone in the ghostly  adagio second movement was  most effective. The strings  played with little or no vibrato  while the piano was suitably  subdued. This was a pleasing  and expressive rendition of this  interesting and effective music.  Paula Sokol-Elliott was recovering from a severe case of  'flu, and Anthony Elliott decided that her participation in  three works (a Kodaly duo for  violin and 'cello was planned)  was too much ofa risk. At the  eleventh  hour,  therefore,  he  undertook to play Bach's Suite  No. 3.  The performance was the  more remarkable considering  that Mr. Elliott has not performed it for several years. He  played the piece from memory.  He later told me that he  maintained his familiarity with  the music because he often used  it for teaching. In this instance,  though, there was no hint of  familiarity breeding any contempt. This technically difficult  music was played with assurance and love. It was  apparent from the playing that  this music was precious to the  performer and so he made it for  the audience.  The level of applause from  an audience of approximately  75 for the three pieces which  comprised this third concert in  the Countryside Concerts series was a good measure of the  enthusiasm for the performers'  offerings.

Lunch And Dinner Specials by John Moore  ..From time to time in this  cqlumn I've reviewed books by  Japanese authors, from the  novels of Yukio Mishima and  Yasunari Kawabate to A Book  pf Five Rings, the Zen-inspired  manual of sword-strategy by  Mjyamote Mushashi. This  vyeek I'd like to recommend a  fine book, not by a Japanese,  but about Japan. Specifically,  Mark Holborn's The Ocean In  The Sand (Shambhala Publications Inc. 1978) is about the  Japanese garden and the significance of its relationship  with the surrounding landscape, but ultimately the book  embraces religion, philosophy,  i'tual, tradition, art and archi-  lesiture to such an extent that it  is one of the best books on the  culture of Japan as a whole that  I've ever read.  ' Holborn painstakingly details the forces, both natural  and psychological which  shaped the development of the  Japanese garden; the craggy  island land-and-seascape, with  its sheer volcanic cliffs and  rugged windswept promontories' thrown into surrealistically  sltarp relief by the surrounding  sea has exercised a profound  influence on all facets of  Japanese life from time immemorial. The simple fact of  the lack of arable land on the  Island chain has produced a  serisc of economy so powerful  th'at it is reflected not only in  the extensive terracing of every  possible hillside, but in almost  eve,ry aspect of the lives, arts  and religious beliefs of the  people. Shinto, the traditional  folk religion of Japan, holds  that spirits are embodied in  mountains, trees, even rocks,  objects we tend to dismiss as  wholly material and inanimate.  Obviously the Japanese vision  of the landscape possesses a  vitality which ours has lacked,  in spite of occasional resuscitations, since pagan antiquity.  Very early in Japanese prehistory, contact with mainland  China introduced the pseudo-  science of geomancy, a form of  divination by land-surveying.  Houses, roads, and gardens  were not constructed willy-nilly  or merely for practical convenience. Sites were determined to  be auspicious or inauspicious,  depending on how well they  embodied a balance between  the active and passive forces  observed everywhere in nature;  the yin and the yang. A  homesite should be neither  among the crags, which embody the active principle, or on  a flat plain, which embodies the  passive, but rather, Holborn  points out, where the mountains  meet the rolling hills,  Holborn also observes acutely  that such a site, arrived at by  whatever arcane machinations,  might be discovered just as  easily by intuition as being the  one which offers the most  pleasingly varied prospects and  climate; high enough to be  cool in summer, yet low enough  to be practical in winter,  blessed with a variety of views  and well situated to observe the  changes of weather and season.  In their gardens, the Japanese  sought always to create, as they  Carl's corner  Man has changed the lace of  the steep, rocky sidehills of  Toba Inlet with his mobile  equipment and helicopter logging, but one of the few things  thst remains as it was some  forty years ago is the bear  papulation of the Inlet.  There seems to more black  bears as compared to grizzlies,  than there were back then but,  black or grizzly, the bears are a  nuisance in thc Weldwood  Camp.  Located 18 miles up the  valley from the log dump with  another ten miles of main road  and spurs branching off, Weldwood logs a large area. Okanagan Helicopters operate two  large and two support choppers  wliich will produce 200 to 250  cunits of wood per machine per  day operating from two or  more landings.  In Knights Inlet they produce up to 300 cunits with the  one huge machine. I will be  learning more of the statistics  as I go along and hope to report  more on this later, but this is a  bear story.  One of the bears' favourite  hangouts, of course, is around  thc cookhouse. It has been  necessary to block the windows  with plvwood as a replacement  for the glass llicy bri'ak. They  have a habit of looking in foi  goodies and if they see anything  interesting, "CRASH" goes the  glass.  There is one old fellow who  looks in a cookhouse window  each morning at 4:00 a.m.  looking for a handout. Some of  the early kitchen staff pass dark  figures in the early hours and  they are never sure if they are  drunks on all fours or upright  gentlemen in wooly coats. It's  getting pretty spooky!  Some   of   the   boys   play  /   dangerous games with them. In  the wee hours one morning two  guys enticed a grizzly into the  hallway ofa long bunkhouse by  placing a trail of sweets right in  through the front door. When  the grizzler was inside they  sneaked out tbe back door then  ran around to the front and  slammed that one shut.  Wasn't long till the grizzler  ran out of sweets and decided  to leave. Frustrated by all those  closed doors, he began to  bellow, The roars and snarls  woke everyone in the bunkhouse. As doors began to open  the old bear headed for each in  turn, thinking it was his way  out. But they were slammed in  his face as each man headed for  his window.  At last, in a headlong gallop  down the long hallway, the  bear crashed through the front  door and out into the night. If it  had been a bedroom door the  results could have been tragic.  A dangerous game at best!  One evening a kitchen mechanic was tending his potato  peeling when he thought he  heard his. buddy beside him. He  spoke and when no reply came  he looked. A black bear was  head first in a garbage can  beside him.  He screamed, the bear  scrammed, and the kitchen  mechanic caught the first flight  out in the morning. Last word  was that he had a steady job in  the heart of the city and  planned never to leave again.  The scariest incident happened a few weeks ago to a  middle-aged couple living in a  trailer at the beach camp. In the  wee hours they awoke to find a  bear had broken in and was  about to open cupboard doors  the hard way. He was within  touching distance of the couple  mm  ForMOccasions^3;:l;  dresses^  In The Latest   iM^^f  Designs ^W*'  And Fabrics '%  At The Right Prices i%  drop in and browse  Helen's  Fashion Shoppe  Beachcomber Country   886-9941  Lower Glbtont  did in their architecture, in  harmony with nature rather  than in opposition to it. Any  sign of artificiality, contrived-  ness, or cleverness for its own  sake is thought to spoil the  effect of beauty, according to  Japanese aesthetics. The introduction of Buddhism to Japan  and its ultimate refinement in  the philosophy of Zen, with its  stress on the revelation of  eternal truth among the mundane realities of everyday life,  also made a deep impression on  the design of Japanese gardens,  inspiring the stark beauty of the  "oceans in the sand", the  creations of rock and raked  sands which reflect the pure  essence of the Japanese view of  their Island home. Oceans In  The Sand is a thoroughly  researched yet wonderfully  readable work, full of fascinating historical anecdotes and  thought-provoking observations. It's well illustrated with  valuable historic photographs  and excellent contributions  from some fine contemporary  Japanese photographers. $6.95  is a bargain for this one and it  should be of particular interest  to people on the North West  Coast, since our rugged island-  dotted Coast so closely resembles that of Japan. We see all  around us the increasing evidence of experiments in living;  'a renewed interest in the  preservation of the natural  environment and a willingness  to adjust ourselves, our architecture and our way of living to  it, rather than merely calling in  the bulldozers.

The hip-shot pull of both  triggers delivered Mr. Bear into  Honeypot Heaven on a one  way trip before he knew what  hit him! If it hadn't been a  killing shot'the story mayhave  had a different ending, but the  couple told me that not one  pellet from that double load  scratched the fancy wall paneling.  I'm getting a few pics of  bears at the camp garbage  dump, but the pickup is  pointed down the road with the  engine running. The grizzly will  tree a black if he doesn't like his  looks. He's the boss of the  scavenger pile and you can be  sure I will not be debating the  point with him.  Carl.  Coast News, November 6,1979  Juried art  Glenn Allison of U.B.C. Fine Arts Gallery is shown  selecting paintings for this week's Juried Art Show. He  is holding an untitled work by Gibsons artist Jan Wade.  Against marina  by Roy Cllne, M.P.  Gibsons has a new citizen's  group, TAXPAYERS FOR A  REALISTIC APPROACH TO  PROGRESS, whose immediate  concern is that the proposed  Gibsons Marina be voted  down.  Not because we are against  improved facilities for boaters  and fishermen , but because we  feel the people of Gibsons and  the Council have been snowed  by the proponents of this  project.  The .rationalizations,, make  no sense to us.  1. How can the Village borrow  10% of $1.66 million at  current rates and avoid  increasing taxes?  2. Are other Marinas self-  sustaining?  3. If it's such a good deal for  the Village, why won't  private enterprise touch it?  4. Why should 1700 residents  of Gibsons undertake such a  risky investment for the  prime benefit of a few  merchants and those able to  afford the luxury of a boat?  5. Tenders for construction  work will be from out of  town contractors because no  one here has the requisite  heavy equipment and they  will bring in their own crews  paid at union rates.  We believe:  A. A more modest extension  within our means could be  agreed upon by those using  the wharf.  B. There are many other priorities needed in this community���such as sidewalks,  road improvements, recreational facilities for children, Brothers Park, etc.  ygvwvwwfwwgwrtrti}  i  i  v  9  9  9  V  I  I  I  I  V  9  Roberts Creek Hospital Auxiliary  EARLY BIRD  CHRISTMAS  BOUTIQUE  Roberts Creek Community Hall  Sat.

Send applications to: Box 1477, Sechelt.  by Jom Haesth Foster  For the benefit of those who  are unfamiliar with the age old  method by which an Art  Gallery selects art works for  exhibition, perhaps some explanation of the Jury system is  in order.  The Sunshine Coast finally  has an almost completed new  Arts Centre and it mutt operate  by the established rules of Art  Centres elsewhere or it will geu  sluggish ratings and its grants  will diminish accordingly. It  must have standards and those  standards will, over the yean,  be as variable as will the erudite  persons invited to administer  them.  The Sunshine Coast Arts  Centre is a small building and  would be hard put to accomodate 40 art works. There were  160 submissions for this open  exhibition.  Glenn Allison, Curator of  the Fine Arts Gallery at U.B.C.  was the 'one man' Juror who  selected the 36 works to be  included in the current exhibition. And his was the only  decision.  Juried exhibitions are always  controversial and people fuss  on about one man versus three  versus a whole confused committee. Personally, over the  years I have been content with a  single cohesive opinion. With  three jurors, one is dominant  anyway and any number over  that involves higher decibels  more florid rhetoric, occasional active scuffling and much  greater expense. These are the  throny judgements upon which  the reputation of an Art  Gallery must hang, (no pun  intended).  No Art Gallery worth its salt  would even consider hanging  all the submissions. That sort  of thing they leave for supermarket malls, gift shops and  painting in the parks. Competition is great fun!  The Sunshine Coast Arts  Council has invited Glenn  Allison back to the Coast iii a  week or two, (exact date will be  announced in this paper) to  discuss the theory and balance  of Juried Shows and to give a  short critique on local work to  members and their friends.  This will be an interesting  evening for all concerned  participants.  There will be many more  shows, each with a different  imported judge or judges and  each will produce a totally  different exhibition involving  many varied types and styles of  art. The entire exercise has a  tightening and smarting effect.  It builds some pressures along  with the dudgeon and will  move some of our indigenous  artists off their comfortable  butts, (perches?).  Though I am but a simple  painter and not at all wise in the  ways of the Art World Au  courant I have always loved  Juried Shows for the delights of  the unexpected and the general  confusion they continue to  generate.

One's  liking for beef, unfortunately, does not diminish  as the price rises, and endless though the recipes  for ground beef are, one can tire of it even though  it can be served in 1,001 different ways!  There are, somewhere, people aware of  consumer problems and the Beef Information  Centre has a whole series of pamphlets  suggesting different ways of serving beef. One is  even called "Stretch Your Beet Dollar". Write to  594 Elstree Place, North Vancouver, British  Columbia, V7N 2Y3.  Of course, to eat tasty beef, one does not  necessarily have to have filet mignon. The French  have been renowned for centuries for the  delicious ways in which they serve the cheaper  cuts of meat. So don't despair, you don't have to  live for ever on pot roast.  Try this beef stew���it serves four.  2 lbs. rump or round steak  2 tablespoons oil  1 tablespoon brown sugar  1 tablespoon Hour  2 tablespoons red wine  2 tablespoons milk  5. Stir marinade juices gradually in flour. Add  wine. Pour into casserole and return to oven  for one hour.  6. Stir in milk and serve.  Don't forget to remove the bones from meat to  use as beef stock for soups. Just place them in a  pot and cover with cold water or the water in  which you have cooked the vegetables. Cover  and bring to the boil, then lower the heat and  simmer for four hours, (or use a pressure cooker).  Strain and cool. When cool skim off the fat. To  flavour the stock, add some diced vegetables-  onions or leeks, carrots and celery. A touch of  savory is good and some parsley, sage and  thyme. Making stock is such an interesting  occupation���one feels like a medieval alchemist  as one experiments with a little of this and a bit  more of that. And more pleasing still, it's good for  one's pocket and one's nutrition.  Do send away to the Beef Information Centre���  their pamphlets are really helpful and include  such topics as money saving tips, freezer buying,  beef grading and inspection, quick and easy  recipes and microwave cooking. Somewhere in  there you're bound to find some useful  information.  Happy aatlng.

On November 17 the people of Gibsons will be asked to vote on a  referendum for a permanent moorage Marina in Gibsons Harbour.  Why should we vote YES?  The historic and beautiful Lower Village of Gibsons has become the sick  man of the Sunshine Coast. The last few years have seen the loss of the  pharmacy, the hardware store and the 60 year old Elphinstone Co-op.  Residents of the Lower Village are being denied services which are their  historic right.  How can the Marine help?  Traditionally the Lower Village has taken its sustenance from the sea.  Today the harbour is choked to suffocation point. Our commercial fleet is  struggling in the inadequate facility of the Government Wharf amidst a  host of pleasure boats sharing the facility. The Marina will free the  Government Wharf for commercial vessels, provide safe anchorage for  our pleasure boats, and take Gibsons a long step into the thriving future it  deserves.  How much will It cost?  The cost of the Marina will be $1.66 million dollars. Of that sum the  Village will be required to borrow less than 10% and even that will be paid  back in revenues from the Marina. The balance will come from the Federal  and Provincial Governments. If it is not forthcoming the Marina will simply  not be built.  $1.66 million dollars will go into the economy of the Village and the  taxpayers can only benefit.  Let's vote YES on November 17. We have nothing to lose  and tomorrow to gain.

Sponsored By Concerned Taxpayers And Residents  MM in praise of alders  Maryanne s viewpoint  _by Maryanne West  Kj I read somewhere the suggestion that if the dandelions  ?.\(hich bloom riotously on every  ;jrt>adside and vacant lot, even  :invading our lawns and gardens were less prolific we would  cultivate them with care as  exotic beauties rather than  ���attacking them with herbicides.  >o The same theory might well  itpply to the common red alder  ���of thc Pacific Coast. I've been  meaning to write in praise of  alders and recent discriminatory remarks about them gives  me the necessary impetus.  ; The alder (the black European genus) was a familiar tree  in my childhood, growing  .along the banks of streams, not  '���following the stately elms along  the hedgerows or growing with  beech and oaks in copse or  ;s)>inney. A small tree, notable  mainly for being one of the  exceptions with which nature  confounds man's continued  '.efforts to categorize everything  :into neat and tidy compartments.  88 Where most cone-bearing  .trees are evergreens, with again  -the exception of the tamarack,  'With needle-shaped or scale like  leaves, the alder is broad  leaved, deciduous and cone-  bearing. Coming to Canada I  couldn't believe the beautiful  jSiands of alder���tall, slender,  graceful, grey-almost white  :trunks which might easily be  .mistaken for birch or aspen���  could be related to those small,  dark, gnarled trees I remembered.  ���:JI don't know whether anyone has estimated how many  tiny winged seeds a mature  alder produces in one season. It  ;jhust be millions. Any cleared  lot, roadside or gravel pit  abandoned for a year will  Income spring green with a  dense carpet of tiny alder  Jjiedlings, very effectively holding the soil against further  'erosion. While needing a lot of  Water to grow well, they also  have a special liking for glacial  -Aoraines and grow well on  Kavel.  ;>The young trees grow at a  phenomenal rate, shooting up  several feet in a year or two,  those able to develop the best  Spot systems out-growing the  competition.  .v Young alders have smooth,  ^ove-fitting, olive green bark  ���vyhich gradually changes on  ���maturity to that beautiful, soft,  greyish white pattern all over  'the medallions of pale green  lichen. It tolerates other trees  jind grows happily with firs,  Spruces, hemlocks and broad-  leaved maples.  SN Unlike most other deciduous  trees the leaves do not change  ,l$plour in the fall. They are  almost the last to succumb to  Winters approach, remaining  green and fresh on the branches  until the wind or frost finally  brings them down.  ;> Already next spring's flow-  fcrs, the bright green male  catkins and the smaller spikes  of female flowers, are formed  on the twigs as well as next  summer's leaves, snug and safe  inside those fat red-brown  Suds.  ;"The alder provides us with  tine of the first welcome signs of  spring each year, telling of  lengthening days, increasing  Warmth in the sun and rising  sap in the trees. Stop on the  Sunnycrest parking lot in early  March and look up towards  Mount Elphinstone where  alders which stakeout the  Watercourses along the bench  glow crimson in the sunshine.  The male catkins now turned as  red as the fattening leaf buds  and the whole base of the.  mountain seems to be wrapped  in a crimson haze.  Alder wood is clean and  white, usually free of knots and  highly prized as firewood  because it burns clearly without  the sparks and explosions of  more resinous wood. What is  more attractive than a cord or  two of alder, neatly stacked,  green or grey bark, orange  cambium and white heartwood  forming repeating patterns to  gladden the eye���assurance of  winter comfort should snow  fall and gales blow.  Nor does old age leave the  alder useless. Mosses take over  from the lichens clothing the  trunk in wispy vestments of  hanging green, bright green  cushioned varieties fill cavities  from which liquorice fern and  polypodies grow, fringed  wreaths ascending the trunk  and adorning the branches.  There is a particularly handsome, long horned beetle about  two inches in length which  spends a couple of years in its  larval stage inside the dying  alder processing the softening  wood and in its turn providing  a meal for a hungy pileated  woodpecker.  Many other organisms help  to breakdown the rotting wood  to return it to a mulch to  nourish a new generation of  French  conversation  course  On November 10, Saturday,  Peter Hauke will converse in  French all day at a 1-day  workshop in Gibsons.

Overnight in  September or October when  rain falls after a warm sunny  spell to activate the fungus  spores, the old stumps blossom  again with crowds of tiny,  reamy toadstools growing in  clumps from ground level on  up, a feast for slugs and  squirrels and people too.  If I may be forgiven for  harping on a particular topic,  but Cliff Gilker Park isn't just a  nice piece of bush where a few  people walk. It's a living  laboratory. A laboratory where  every tree and plant, however  majestic or apparently insignificant has its appointed place  in the fabric. A laboratory  where we may go to study and  marvel and watch the intricate  and thrifty processes of nature  where nothing is wasted in the  complex inter-relationship of  plants, animals, fungi, insects  and bacteria.  With our power to destroy  must go an understanding of  our responsibility to this thin,  very precious and maybe  unique layer of topsoil which  supports all life, including our  own on this space ship we call  Earth.

If our information is correct  as regards the Recreation  Reserve, that would seem to  imply that the public will be  able to use the area for  recreation. The lake will no  doubt  be used as drinking  water by these people  (campers, etc.) exposing them  to the possibility of being  poisoned. If, on the other hand,  the area is closed to the public,  then the Recreation Reserve  becomes an anachronism.  We object strongly to any  body of water being used for  experimental purposes like  this, especially with a highly  toxic chemical like Orthene  about which so little is known,  and we ask that you put an  immediate stop to the project  until such time as a full  investigation has been  conducted.

Neither can we. And that, in a nutshell, is the biggest problem automobile insurance  companies like ours have faced for years. Who pays how much ���  The traditional solution seemed logical enough: calculate the number of accidents each group was likely  to be involved in-young and old, male and female, single and married, where they live-anil charge all members of  that group the same premium, depending upon vehicle use.  The trouble was, each group contained good drivers and bad drivers.The system simply lumped them together.  It was based on probabilities, not individual abilities.  That's going to change. The Provincial Government has challenged the entire aUto insurance industry in  British Columbia to come up with a new and non-discriminatory rating system. I.C.B.C.'s answer is  Fundamental Auto Insurance Rating. We call it EA.I.R. Because it is fair,  The program will start to be phased in on March 1,1980. First priority will be  given to removing age, sex and marital status as factors in determining insurance  premiums. Those changes will be made in the first two years. Geographic inequalities  will start levelling out in 1980 and will be eliminated by 1985.  By March 1,1982 the basic idea will be in place: everyone will be innocent  until proven guilty; everyone will be a safe driver until proven unsafe; everyone will  entitled to a base premium until they lose that right.  But if everyone enjoys these rights, they must also share the responsi-  bilities.That's why the new F A. I. R. program includes a Driver Accident  Premium. The implementation of this Accident Premium will place thc  principal responsibility on the driver who causes accidents.  Obviously, any program that sets a fair base premium is going to  cost money. So who'll make up the difference ? The bulk of the  money will eventually come from those who are responsible for accidents.  They'll pay higher premiums. And the more accidents they have,  the more frequently they have them, the higher their premiums can go.  Isn't that the way it should be ? That's F A.I. R. ���   Insurance Corporation of British Columbia  _______tt______ **-****T**mmm*  Coast News, November 6, 1979  The Sechelt United goalie makes a last minute save to keep his team in a 3-2 lead last  Sunday at Langdale field.

Strikes and spares  by Bud Mulcaster  The Golden Age Swingers  League held their 'I Beat The  Chief Tournament last Tuesday and 24 out of 28 beat the  chief. We had invited Carl  Horner, Gibsons' Fire Chief, to  roll a game and that was the  score thc Swingers had to beat.  We handicapped the lower  average bowlers to Carl's 167  game and the higher average  bowlers had to beat their  averages. Most of the Swingers  found it a piece of cake,  however, with all deference to  Carl the Swingers bowl once a  week so they had a bit of an  edge. Anyways they all enjoyed  it and wc appreciate Carl  taking the time to join in the  Tournament. Thanks again  Carl.  Our Youth Bowling Council  bowlers have been selling the  boxes of chocolate covered  almonds around the area the  last couple of weeks and Ihis is  the one and only fund raising  project that they participate in  for the Youth Bowling Council.  The monies received from this  project goes to pay for their  "Four Steps To Slardom Tournament" which siarts in January. This is a Canada wide  tournament and has house,  regional, provincial und finally  national rounds. As this does  work up to national finals, (he  travel costs nlonc are staggering and the profits from the  sale of the almonds helps  defray these expenses. This is  one of thc largest, if not ihe  largest, tournaments in Canada  and encompasses all Youth  Bowling   Council   bowlers  Coast to Coast. We thank  everybody who has supported  this project and if anybody  wants some or more, we have  lots at the bowling centre. They  make good Christmas gifts.  In league action, 300 games  rolled by Pat Prest - 329,  Freeman Reynolds - 304, and  Ray Coates, his first, a 314 in  the Classic League. Ray's 314  game was instrumental, along  with Jane Coates and myself,  winning the first quarter in the  Classic League by 1/2 a point.  In the Tuesday Coffee  League, Mamie Baba rolled a  311 single and Lise Sheridan  rolled a 338 single which I  believe is her first 300 game.  Kathy Clark came up with a  300 even game in the Gibsons  'A' League and Jane Coates got  exited with a 316 single in the  Ball and Chain.  Nora Solinsky spared in the  Slough-Off League and rolled  games of 273-298 and 351 for a  922 three game total; not bad  for a spare.

The presentation of awards was part of the  evenings festivities. Some 77  members enjoyed a fine dinner  convened by the house committee, and listened and danced  to the piano and guitar stylings  of Steve Hubert.  Club Champ Ken Hincks,  just two years out of the junior  ranks, was presented with the  Champion's Trophy.  Lil Bullied, Ladies 1979 Club  Champion, received the Ladies  Trophy. Lil is a most ardent  and keen golfer. It is very  evident her many hours of  practice has made her a worthy  representative of our club in the  Mainland zone finals.  Senior Champ Jim Budd is  very active in club activities.  Besides being Director of  Finances, he is a keen golfer  and this year staged a steady  game to win a close play-off  with Tom Milstead.  Dan Lindsey, from the  junior ranks, was winner of the  Junior Trophy. Dan had no  competition in this year's  Junior Tournament but there is  no doubt that he is a worthy  champion for our club and is  well thought of in junior ranks  in the Lower Mainland.  Hole-in-one golfers, Cliff  Sangster, Jim Munro and Art  Kiloh, were suitably recognized  for their one shot abilities.  Another hard working  Match Committee member,  Vic Marteddu was voted most  improved golfer of the year. Vic  worked many long hours on  'handicaps arid twilite golf.  A surprise winner of the  dreaded Sandbagger Award,  was popular Ozzie Hincks.  Ozzie plays a loose and relaxed  game when he is out to enjoy a  round of golf but zeroes in  when the play is for a club  tournament or private wager.  Ozzie is a busy member of the  Match Committee and was the  winner of the Director's Trophy for this year.  Winter Tournament winners  were, John and Doreen Mathews, who could not be present  to receive their trophy due to  being on a trip to Australia.  Spring Medal Play Winner  was Freeman Reynolds. Reynolds is well known for his  many years in fastball in  Gibsons, he plays golf in the  winter months, along with  bowling, so is in good form for  our Spring Competition.  Andy and Jean Gray defeated all-comers to take the  Walt Morrison Trophy.  President Laurie Todd's  hand picked team defeated  Alex Werner's Vice President  team, to pick up the President  versus Vice President's Trophy  for this year.  The Host and Hostess Tournament was won by long  service host, Phil Clarke and  Hostess Trophy was won by  Greta Patterson.  An extremely funny skit was  presented by  Kay and Jim  Men'  Budd which could be entitled  "Smiles". Many long hours of  study and concentration must  have gone into such a successful presentation.  Andy Gray has started the  Saga of Angus' Sandbaggers  attempt to win a pound or two  in Scotland from Arnie and  Jack, a couple of well known  American golfers. The results  will be forthcoming at another  gathering in the clubhouse.  by Helen Sallis  s  hockey  The first week of regular  league games has passed and  fans have witnessed fast,  aggressive hockey with plenty  of action, and lots of exciting  scoring.  With the "no-hitting" style of  game, plenty of goals is assured and teams have been  scoring in bunches.  Good crowds for this early in  the season are evident, but as  the games and teams get used to  each other, better hockey is not  too far off.

Fed-up  Editor:  As a Gibsons taxpayer being  bulldozed into thc operational  support of a Marina, I am  getting somewhat fed-up.  How come 1700 local taxpayers are asked to dig down  for ali the regional area users  that won't contribute a nickel if  the prospect is a failure���and  "��� that is a very likely scenario?  Too   many   regioners  are  ��� riding on our facilities without  ;any support. A $46,000 pool  : subsidy���likely  going up to  $60,000���helps the kids, but  don't ask me to contribute to  the enjoyment of Mr. Plush-  : buck and his $30,000 sloop. No  : way!.  Allan Dann.  Editor:  Let's raise the burgee over  the proposed Marina���a "white  elephant" on a black background���the Council's symbol  of a long-shot venture supported bv Gibsons taxpavers���  all 1700 of us.    '  Marinas are notoriously  marginal operations. Remember the Captain Cove venture  on Deas Slough and the more  recent failure at Point Roberts���they were supposed to  be sure-fire winners.  Mr. Eby's feasibility study of  early spring showing that  Pender Harbour supports thirteen privately owned Marinas,  speaks wondrous words���they  were "privately owned" and he  did not show that all were  profitable or likely supported  financially by the proprietor  who worked elsewhere in  winter months. Moreover, the  energy crisis makes his findings  anachronistic. Let's face facts.  boat owning is a very expensive  hobby that fewer and fewer will  be able to enjoy.  Paulsbo, a comparable Village in Washington and about  20 miles from Seattle has a 300  berth Marina. It provides  berths for 40 or 50 seiners and  tuna boats and two-thirds of  the operation has a scattering  of recreational craft at berth in  winter���it is not a self-supporting operation. Again,  policing facilities are often  over-taxed by the inevitable  'booze cruising' craft that will  tie up and bring unneeded  problems to management and  local sheriffs.  Not a word comes forth  about the pollution that 430  boat 'heads' can bring to our  harbour���despoiling our water  and beaches.  Voters "Be Informed"  BCRIC shares - Yes!  Marina - NO!

Let us assume he  was running deer or killing  chickens. Did he deserve the  death of a rag doll? Did it not  occur to this person to contact  the authorities so that responsible action could bc taken by  Ihem and by mc? Or does this  person get his jollies mutilating  animals? Does he shoot deer in  the hind quarters and leave  ihem to an agonizing death?  As the former owner of a  large dog I am the first person  lo acknowledge that no dog  should be limning at large,  however, there are humane  alternatives that can be taken  to resolve the problem and 1  would have been most anxious  lo assume ihe responsibility for  my dog had I been given [tic  chance.

Labonte has been a Sunshine  Coast resident for 34 years and  has been for 29 years an  employee at the Port Mellon  pulp mill.  Labonte worked for the  Gibsons Athletic Association  for more than 20 years and was  active in his union also for  more than 20 years. Since last  November he has been very  active with the Gibsons Community Plan Committee.  "I'd like to help the new  Council," says Labonte, "and  to contribute to the beautification of the Lower Village."  The ex-Mayor believes that the  proposed Marina would be a  definite asset to the Village of  Gibsons.  Labonte stresses his involvement in the Gibsons Community Plan and hopes that the  public will participate fully  when the time comes.  "Everyone eligible should  turn out to vote in the election,"  says Labonte. "It is an opportunity as well as a responsibility."  Twenty-five year old Benoit  Lepage is running for Gibsons  Council this year on a platform  of political reliance. Lepage has  lived in Gibsons for the past 12  years.  Lepage's political platform  calls for thc organization of  entertainment for the teenagers  of Gibsons on a year round  basis; for thc extension of the  sewer line down Burns Road  and to other areas which  require the facility; he would  attempt to 'prevent Council  members from obtaining first  hand knowledge of rezoning  areas for their own benefit'; and  to inform the public of 'how  Council members abuse their  power'.  Lepage's manifesto says that  during the current election  campaign the teenagers now  have someone who is 'willing to  go the limit'. "They, too, have  their rights in this democracy of  ours."  "On the 17th," says Lepage,  "don't refuse our youths the  only right they have. It is for the  welfare of all."  There are two one-year  vacancies on the Gibsons  Village Council this year  caused by current aldermen  running for Mayor.  Thirty year old Terry Kark-  abe, manager of Fitzgerald's  restaurant, is contesting the  one year vacancy on Gibsons  Council this year occasioned by  the candidacy of Lorraine  Goddard for Mayor.  Karkabe was born in the  Netherlands, moving to Canada in 1954. He moved to the  West Coast in 1971 and has  been a resident of Gibsons  since 1974, operating the  popular Dogwood Cafe for  several years. He is married  with one son.  He sees the lack of year  round employment in the  Village as being one of the  major problems and feels  'pollution conscious light industry" should be developed to  provide employment for the  Village.  If elected Karkabe would  'attempt to find government  money to rejuvenate the Lower  Lower Village'. "I am in favour  of expanding the commercial  facilities and allowing commercial vessels back in their  home port. If that includes  provision for transient summer  traffic, so be it, but commercial  vessels are more important.  "Gibsons is on the verge of  major expansion and if it is not  controlled it could cause  serious problems. I prefer  ownership as much as possible'  to be local ownership."  Contemplating the future,  Karkabe says, "Those of us  going into business at the  present time have a lot at stake  and we should have some voice  in Village affairs."  Ex-alderman Stuart K. Metcalfe is seeking election to the  seat vacated by Alderman  Lorraine Goddard in this  year's Gibsons Municipal election. "We've got a wholesale  upheaval on Council this year  and with my experience as a  two term alderman I would  hope to provide some steadying  experience and continuity,"  says Metcalfe.  Metcalfe is running on a  platform which claims that he  would represent the taxpayers  as a whole, not a minority  group with special interests. He  would closely scrutinize all  major expenditures of public  monies; he would seek to  upgrade water pressure and  quality throughout the Village  as required.  Metcalfe favours co-operation with areas adjoining the  Village and would seek to  upgrade roads and to install  sidewalks within the Village  where possible.  He would encourage small  industry to utilize the Village's  industrial park so that the  youth of the Village would not  leave home for employment  and believes that as the population centre of the Sunshine  Coast, Gibsons should also be  the administrative centre.  Metcalfe points to his background of 30 years in engineering, a background which  could prove of real value to the  Village. "I am a retiree and I  have the time and the enthusiasm and the experience to be of  value on Gibsons Council."  aiL .        _  For Gibsons housewife Diane Strom, the current Municipal elections mark her first  attempt to win political office.  Sixty-two year old Larry  Trainor is seeking his second  term as a Gibsons alderman  this year. In the past two years  Trainor has served on the  Marina and Harbour Committee; on the Airport Committee; on the Museum, Library, and Tourism Committees; and on the Sunshine Coast  Provincial Emergency Committee.  "I feel my first two years have  been productive," says Trainor.  "I've worked hard at it. The  Marina proposal was pigeon  holed and I initiated the action  to form a Standing Committee  on the project.  Trainor points out that if the  referendum is successful there  is still a lot of work to be done  on the Marina and on Harbour  development. He stresses that  he is in full support of the needs  of commercial vessel owners  for Harbour upgrading.  The joint Gibsons-Sechelt  airport has been another of  Trainor's portfolios. "Improvements have got to be  made there," he says. "Traffic  doubled in the past year and the  airport has a terrific future. It's  a gold mine."  In general reflections on the  past two years, Trainor feels  that the Village Council has  done a commendable job. "We  have established good rapport  with the Regional Board and  are generally in pretty good  shape."  "Being retired," says Trainor,  "I am able to give Council work  100% of my time and attention/!   Her husband, Daniel, is a  commercial fisherman. The  couple has three children and  Diane has been a resident of  Gibsons since 1930.  Among the present problems  facing the Village, Strom lists  the condition of the government wharf as a priority. "We  are already losing boats to  other Harbours and it is time  people realized that fishing is  an existing local industry which  must be protected. A lot of men  are employed on the commercial boats and revenue in  excess of $2 million is generated  in a payroll poor area."  Another concern of candi  date Strom is for the long range  beautification of the Lower  Village. "Potentially we have  one of the most beautiful  Harbour Villages on the Coast  but we are not making the most  of it," says Strom.  A third area of concern is the  40 acres of property owned by  the Village. "This prime land  must be developed," says  Strom. "A lot of tax revenue  would be generated for Village  use."  For the past year Strom has  been a volunteer worker on  behalf of the commercial  fishermen on the Gibsons  Community Plan Committee,  CLASSIFIEDADS  CAMpbell's  FAMILY SHOES and LEATHER GOODS  "IN THE HEART OF DOWNTOWN SECHELT"  Your friendly neighbourhood     ^  drop-off point for Coast News \j-is  Classified Ads.

Sechelt aldermanic candidates  ��.?���  Mike Evans  Twenty-six year old Mike  Evans is the youngest of the  candidates seeking Municipal  office this year. Evans moved  to Sechelt at the age of three  and is an employee of B.C.  Hydro as a line truck driver.  Evans sees a properly functioning democracy as one of the  central needs in Sechelt Village.  "The main reason that I am  running is that I feel that the  Village Council has not acted'  as an elected representative  body. They have tended to  strike out on their own which is  not their function."  Evans would like to see the  Village continue to be resident  oriented. "Of course this has to  go hand in hand with the  economic health of the com-  minity, but I feel the balance  can be achieved."  Charles Lee  Regional Director Charles  Lee is seeking to win a seat on  Sechelt Village Council this  year in addition to the seat on  the Regional Board he is also  contesting again.  Lee is 69 years of age, has  been married for 41 years and is  the father of three and a  grandfather and a great grandfather. He is "old enough to  understand and protect the  elderly, young enough to  participate and empathise with  the young".  A published writer of university textbooks on government  and finance and a veteran of the  Second World War, Lee has  been known during his service  on the Regional Board as  vigilant proponent that public  monies should be spent most  responsibly.  "We have recreational, tourist and residential facilities that  properly developed are a  goldmine waiting to be developed," says Lee.  Lee has owned his present  property in Selma Park for 22  years and has been permanent  resident of Selma Park since  1974.  study could be economically  done by retired professionals  The aldermanic candidate  stressed that it was essential  that Sechelt should have a  strong and business like Council during the present growth  period.

He is seeking an aldermanic  seat in this year's Municipal  election.  Hall is a resident of West  Sechelt with his wife Lydia and  his five year old son Casey. In  addition he has three married  daughters.  Our family life started in  this community when we leased  summer cottage for three  months annually from 1963 to  1969. We purchased our present property in 1969 and have  been in permanent residency  since 1973."  Hall is strongly in favour of  expanding the Village boundaries as soon as possible. "A  committee should be struck to  investigate the economic and  social effects of expansion,"  said Hall. Hall's suggested area  for expansion would be from  Redrooffs Road to Browning  Road and he points out that the  /s7\ SUNSHINE  Xjy KITCHENS  FINE CABINETS  886-9411  <$��� $: yf. >jc v: & ���  NDP  ,0*SrOt  On the Beautiful Sunshine Coast at Gower Point  ��� Guestrooms (BreakfastIncluded)  * Dining Room   886-9033    ffiUM^  Marilyn Wohl is pictured with a model at the Crest Sewing Centre Fashion Show at the  Sunnycrest Mall last Friday.

Stelck, aged 29, is an  aldermanic candidate in Sechelt this year. Stelck is the  manager of the Jolly Roger Inn  which will re-open next spring.  Brian, who is married with  one child, has lived in the area  since  1972.  He taught at  Madeira Park for two years  until 1975.  In discussing the present  problems he stresses that the  Village Council must have  control as opposed to the  Regional Board. "The Village  needs a strong representative  on the Regional Board. The  Village must be allowed to act  autonomously," says Stelck  who was an alternate director  on the Regional Board for two  years a few years ago.  "I don't agree with Village  expansion,"   says   Stelck.  "Changes in municipalities will  come of their own accord. We  have too much to get caught up  on now without expanding  over a third of the Coast."  Councils and Regional  Boards, according to Stelck*  must start acting in a business  like fashion.  Stelck is concerned about  parking problems on Cowrie  Street and describes himself as  being on record as wanting to  see something done with the  Village beachfront.

The  Speaker will be Ed Nicholson;  he'll be talking about search  and rescue. This is not a high  profile group, but they are  Important. Last month they  helped out at the plane crash in  Sechelt, and also answered a  {all to look for a person lost on  Gambier Island. It's good to  jtnow that they're around. I put  them into the same category as  die Volunteer Fire Departments.  | It's good to see that the Club  IS protesting the experimentation with Orthene A in Lei  take. Where the hell do people  think they're getting off at,  when they can rationalize using  a once banned, potentially  dangerous chemical in an  experiment in an area which is  accessible to the public?  The stream improvement  project for the past few years  has been centred around Husdon Creek. Recently the Club  put a lot of effort into this body  of water, sandbagging, shore-  ing up and what have you. Help  was available from concerned  people outside the Club. I'd  like to name them because I  think that they deserve recognition. They were, Target  Concrete Products of Burnaby,  Gibsons Building Supply, Gary  Russel and Len Harder.  Birding Meeting  At the last minute, Rick  McKelvey couldn't make it, so  instead of having a discussion  on trumpeter swans, Garry  Kaiser filled in and brought us  up to date on his work with  shore birds. You may remember that Garry was one of the  speakers last year; the topic at  that time had been the nesting  colonies on Triangle Island at  the north end of Vancouver  Island.  The main point he made was  how much the work of naturalists depend on the observations of the interested observers. A perfect, if rather  frustrating example of this is  that for the past three years he  and his colleagues have been  mist netting western sandpipers  on the Fraser Delta, taking  down all the info on them,  spraying the tails red and  releasing them. To date there  have been no reported sightings  along the migration routes; talk  about patience.  There is a similar program at  the main nesting area at  Kuskokwin in Alaska. The  dunlin and sanderlings have  been sprayed orange on the  breast. To date, two have been  reported at Qualicum and two  at Tofino.  In the banding programs,  each area has its own colour  combination. So if you see, or  find any banded birds, help out  and report them. From looking  at my list of addresses, the best  one I can give you without  bugging someone on their day  off, is The Canadian Wildlife  Service, Bird Population and  Banding Dept., Delta, B.C.  Attention Nolan Perret.  Odds'n'ends  Helen Dawe was at the  birding meeting. She reported  the sighting of what she felt was  a Clark's Nutcracker. Along  with everyone else, I doubted it,  since they are a high country  bird. Next day I got a call from  Helen. She and two others had  seen the bird again and from  the description it couldn't be  anything else. The only sighting  I have of this nutcracker was on  August 16,1971,5000 feet up in  the Sierras, so it's interesting if  we have one hanging around  here. I'll include a picture of it  and a gray jay comparison so  that anyone around the S bend  in Sechelt can perhaps confirm  the sighting.  A lot of my information is  gathered from you giving me a  call when you come across  anything interesting. My  thanks and keep them coming.  The numbers are 886-2622/  886-7817 and 886-9151, ta.

Wildlife meeting  ' The Gibsons Wildlife Club is  continuing its series of special  meetings on the first Wednesday of every month at which  they present some interesting  subject with either speakers,  slides and/or films.  On Wednesday, November 7  it will be the turn of the Search  and Rescue group which has  been active on the coast for 12  months now. Our speaker will  be Mr. Ed Nicholson who spent  some time with the North  Shore Group and he will be  bringing some slides along to  illustrate  his  talk.  Members of the public as  well  as  Club members, are  cordially invited to come and  hear what Ed has got to say.  Search and Rescue is a very  important part of the community and deserves the support of the people who may,  some day, call on these volunteers to help them out of some  difficult situation. There will be  a question and answer period,  admission is free and the time  and place, 7:30 at the Gibsons  Wildlife Club on the Highway  opposite the cemetery.  0����Y MY  I 10"  CIAKK'5 NUTCDACKiH  lit"  pj23fc��?-9  Port Mellon  Auxiliary  The regular meeting of the  Port Mellon Hospital Auxiliary  was held on October 17 at the  home of Bev McKie.

Phone 495-6632. #45  by Raymond Skelly  Tuesday, November 5, 1979  Opposition Leader Pierre  Trudeau attended yet another  conference of his Liberal Party  last week and told the gathering  he is prepared to bring down  the Conservative government  sooner than we had all thought.  One must suppose the speech  was made in the interest more  of Liberal Party morale than of  honesty because, of course,  within the last three weeks the  Liberals have, with cynical  premeditation, twice saved the  Conservative government from  defeat on non-confidence motions.  The fact is the Liberals have  more to fear from an early  election than do the Conservatives. Unpopular as many of  the moves of the Clark government may be, the Canadian  voters' sense of fair play is such  that it is unlikely the government would be thrown out  without a chance to exercise a  mandate for a few years.  On the other hand, an early  election would mean the Liberals would have to face the  voters once again under the  leadership of Pierre Trudeau, a  man now with two strikes  against him. Strike one: election loss due largely to his  arrogance and aloofness to real  issues; and strike two: Trudeau  shows no sign of rehabilitation  since that defeat. The latter  point was illustrated with  embarrassing clarity last week  when Mr. Trudeau made a trip  to Calgary and told the audience that, now that there was a  westerner in the prime minister's job, the west should stop  grumbling. After the curt  acknowledgement of western  concerns, he returned to his  philosopher-king ramblings  about national unity during  which he made a not-too-clear  joke which someone in the  audience didn't get. "You must  be from  Calgary", said the  former prime minister before  continuing his musings about  the constitution and all those  things low on the list of urgent  business in a country with a  million unemployed and inflation running close to 10  percent.  Clearly Mr. Trudeau must go  and the first order of business  for the Liberals, before they use  their votes in the House of  Commons to bring down the  government, will be to And a  successor.  That selection is not their  only problem, however. Once  the "party qf reform", the  Liberals through generations  of power and privilege have  long ago lost their philosophical base. Getting into power  and staying in power remains  the only credo for them. In  government, they drifted where  the winds and the Gallup Poll  tossed them. Now in Opposition, this is even more evident.  On the proposal to dismantle  Petro-Canada, they are all over  the block, saying it shouldn't be  done and voting the other way.  In the course of the leadership struggle, there will be  much talk about ideology and  some tussles between the "right  and the left", between those  who want more government  control and those who want  less. But, when that is over, the  fact will remain that the Liberal  Party has little to stand on but a  dwindling regional base. More  and more, it is becoming the  voice of Quebec in the federal  scene, a slightly right-of-centre  federalist alternative for middle-aged Quebecois who are  distraught at the rhetoric of  their separatiste children. In  the rest of the country, the  Liberal Party will dwindle  away to a smaller regional and  class base just as it has done in  British Columbia where the  Party was holed-up in the rich  suburbs of Vancouver in its  final years.

The story takes place almost  entirely in California, and the  battlefield remains wholly  absent from the action. We are  presented with the results of its  ravages, but must guess at its  workings.  The Deerhunter too seems  more concerned with the fabric  of American society, in this  case a blue-collar fabric, than  with the Vietnam War itself.  Although this film takes us into  the war in no uncertain terms, it  is a selective and idiosyncratic  glimpse that rings disconcertingly false, if it is Vietnam that  we wish to understand. The war  that cripples the deerhunter  and his buddies is War with a  capital W, and ultimately the  film is the simple, timeless tale  about blind patriotism and  friendship and romance rent  by, yet partly surviving the cold  hammer-blows of death,  violence and terror. The  Deerhunter affords us no new  insights into the Vietnamese  conflict specifically.  So Apocalypse Now is the one  we have been waiting for. A  decade and $30 million since its  original inception, this is the  one that plunges in where the  others merely wet their toes. A  70 mm screen and six channel  sound envelop the audience in  the tale of the hero's oddysey  up the river to the lair of the  mad Colonel Kurtz.

With Willard we endure a  number of harrowing  experiences, only the first of  which is the much vaunted  helicopter attack to the music  of Wagner, the craft coming in  low and menacing like wolves,  descending like a scourge on  the peaceful village square, full  of skipping, white-shirted  school children, where the  rampant, fearless Lt. Colonel  Kilgore (Robert Duvall) soon  struts unflinching amidst the  shrapnel, eyes ablaze,  bellowing orders over the  corpses on the captured beach,  bracing himself with a lungful  of napalm scented air and  cheering his men as they ride  the surf under hostile fire. His  rationale for attacking the  village: "Charlie don't surf!"  But Kilgore is O.K. Still  recognizably American, and  prey to morality, he chastizes  his own men for not allowing a  dying villager some water,  pushing them angrily away and  ottering his own canteen in  shining example, then as  abruptly neglecting the  wounded man as a further  distraction captures his  attention.  This is the film that Coppola  originally envisioned, I suspect,  and which reflects the import of  the title. It is brutal, wrenching,  shocking, almost unbearable to  watch; he wanted to hold it up  and shake it in the eyes of his  countrymen, that they might  see what they have wrought, or  perhaps I should say, what we  have wrought.  But something else  happened. He based the film  loosely on Heart Of Darkness  by Joseph Conrad���to give it a  story-line probably. But it  seems that slowly and  inexorably Heart Of Darkness  took over, and what once was  meant to lend the film a loose  structure, began to usurp the  whole production, so that  finally the war became a  backdrop for Captain  Willard's inner plunge through  time  into  mankind's  pagan  LORRIE GIRARD  886-7760  JON MCRAE  885-3670  ANNE GURNEY  888-2164  ARNE PETTERSEN  886-9783  GARY PUCKETT  886-9506  STEVE SAWYER  685-2691  JAY VISSER  885-3300  DAVE ROBERTS|  866-8040  ion* 886-2822 *i n   Gibsons Tot Lol  Fridays. 9:30 -11:30 In the Gibaons United Church Hall.

In fact, the film as it now  stands hould have been called  Heart Of Darkness. It is  undoubtedly the central theme,  and the current title is not half  so appropriate.  What is the heart of  darkness? For Conrad, it is the  African jungle into which his  Willard (Marlow in the book)  steams to find his Mister Kurtz.  But Conrad leaves us in no  doubt that the real heart of  darkness is psychological  territory. Mister Kurtz, a once  brilliant idealist and  philosopher, now reigns as a  divinity of the savage tribes of  the interior. He has expunged  his soul of all the ties of  civilization, and of the morality  of his culture. He is free. But it  is a dreadful and tormented  freedom, as be peers put from  the abysmal depths of his  psyche. And moreover, it is a  fate only faintly inked in by  Conrad, who perhaps could  only guess at its content,  leaving much to the reader's  own sense of the existential  abyss his character inhabits...  In that lies much of the story's  power, that it hints at, and only  threatens to lay bare the reality  of the dark atavistic  potentialities within us.  It is into these same daunting  regions that Francis Coppola  navigates his Captain Willard,  whom we soon see to be no  American foreign policy in IhtF  Sixties and early Seventies. The  narration and much of the later  input into the film was by  Michael. Herr,   a   wan  correspondent in the SixtiesO  and the author of Despatches, a,.*  book that achieved in print,.*  what Coppola was attempting,,!  on film: the real story. Yet th��,i;  two are quite different. Herr'Sf.)  book is an eyewitness account  of life with the 'grunts' in the  trenches, and on the jungle  trails, and under attack���the  craziness, the absurdity, the  cruelty and callousness, and yet  above all, and most amazingly,  and very central to the book,  the love and compassion and  plain humanity of the men  trapped in this wan hardbitten  men who would risk their lives  to salvage a helmet or flair;  jacket for Herr, if he needed it,  or would offer their own even'. I  Despatches is generally judged ;  to be the book on what it felt I  like to serve in Vietnam���* !*;  searing blast of truth from the S;  trenches.   And   it   is   a 1  significantly   different   story 5  from  Coppola's  version, n  despite  Herr's  own  partici- jj  pation.   What   makes  the |5  difference   is   Conrad,   ������-' '-  and  Coppola's passionate attempt ;j  to cut through to the heart of;;  darkness.  In The Deerhunter, Robert d  Niro, as the title character?  demands that the deer be killed  -,������, -tv o������ ., ,��� w ���v   with'one clean shot'. Coppola  ,  stranger   to  the  territory   aims for the heart of darkness.,?;  himself. In one numbing scene,   but somehow misses, and the^*.;  he reminds us that he is, like  Kurtz, a cold-blooded assassin,  and even before we get to the  so-called madman, we realize  that Willard is akin to Kurtz in  his acquaintance with  ruthlessness.  By the time the skull and  corpse-bedecked kingdom is  finally attained, it is clear that  Captain Willard has in every  sense left the army behind. Too  much has happened on the  river inward, and when he and  Kurtz meet, they share the  knowledge that they are alone  and naked in this metaphoric  wasteland. The shared reality  there is on a primal level,  beneath conventional morality,  beneath conventional wisdom.  film lunges and hacks mightily  at it, until it becomes, with an  ironic twist, almost a parody of  itself; for one senses that the  film maker lacks, not  technique, or courage, or  ability, or technological  firepower (to extend the  analogy with America's won  incursion into this region), but  the clarity of purpose, the very  deadly effectiveness the film  itself holds in awe. In  trespassing onto territory that  even Conrad would only point  to, Coppola finds that for all  his skill and tenacity, he does  not know what he is doing. His  vacillations about the various  endings, (and the differing  interpretations   they   entail)  f\H___s/ of ||�� wild ^_uj___��AMe  ijmmll vull documented.  "here^sTCurTz explaffis^n^Lifb KilrtYand Willard, he too j  is swallowed up in this moral j  pit. !  There is a scene in the movie j  Midnight Express where, after j  great   provocation  the j  imprisoned hero loses control jj  of himself and attacks the j  sadistic jailer in a paroxysm of jj  of this temple, Kurtz lectures   violence, culminating in his \  the pupil Willard on the ways   biting the man's tongue out. jj  There is more here than mere |  sensationalism.  In its sheer ��  horrific effect, its riveting force, jj  in its stark portrayal of the hero t  rising bloody and triumphant i  over his enemy, and also in his I  these regions genius lies in the  ability to commit the most  ghastly atrocities in a spirit of  purity, and drawing one's  strength from primordial  animal instincts, to make  horror and dread one's allies.  This is it then. In the gloom  of the netherworld, and only  one more act remains to be  committed for the relationship  to be fully consummated.  While the tribe outside ritually  slaughters a bull in the dancing  firelight, Captain Willard  hacks Colonel Kurtz to death,  drawing no doubt on his  mentor's lessons. As he steps  out above the crowd, bloody  and fatalistic, the rules of the  animal world have their issue,  and Kurtz's ghoulishly painted  followers fall before their new  king, their new leader of the  pack, their new god, covered  yet in the blood of their old.  The power is his, and Willard  feels it, and for a moment he is  the new Kurtz. But Willard is  haunted by the ominous,  upturned face of the dying  genius, as the lips utter the last  words Conrad gave him,  rendered with Brando's cold,  precise enunciation, "The  horror, the horror".  Is this the film about  Vietnam?  This is a dark, dark film. The  love and compassion that ran  through The Deerhunter are  quite absent here. This is a film  about Hell. Coppola wants to  show us that this is the Hell we  created and sustained with our  tax dollars and tacit support of  #arictjt>  Jfoobsf  Snack Bar  & Deli  Health Foods  886-2936  Gibsons Harbour  ��� Sandwiches  made to order.  astonishing effect on the  audience, that scene cuts with  'one clear shot' to the very  heart of darkness that Coppola  only flails at. The horror, the  horror.  So what? Do we really need  to examine this lurid stuff?  I believe we ignore it at our  peril. It is the stuff of Nazism  and of Fascism. We can look at \  Uganda or Chile or Kam- I  puchea or Paraguay and see I,  that   heart   of  darkness   at *  work���in the pleasures of those i,  who delight in the suffering of ��:  others,   those   official   and jj  unofficial    torturers    whose i  work and play is bloodlust and {  sadism itself.
