Array r.  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15* per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  July 18, 1978  Volume 31. Number 29  Regional Board  Prepared for Injunction  Copies of maintenance costs for clearing the Hydro right-of-  way were circulated to the members of the Regional Board at  their regular meeting on Thursday, July 13. As expected, the  cost of hand slashing was higher than helicopter spraying or  hand-spread pellets.  What was of immediate concern was the knowledge that  Hydro intend to begin seeding the line at Pender Harbour  with pellets this Monday.  Area 'F' representative Joe Harrison asked what the Board  was preparing in the event that Hydro went ahead in the face of  public and official opposition. He was assured by Chairman  Almond that their lawyer was in contact with Environment  Canada, and an appeal had been presented to them. "If Hydro  do not recognize our appeal and begin chemical clearing,  then we shall seek an injunction against them," he said. He  assured the Board that the lawyer felt they had a good chance in  court, since Hydro had not complied with many of the requirements staled in the permit. For example the residents in the  area had not been notified, plus their intent to apply for the  permit had not appeared in the local press, to name two of the  stipulations.  With regard to the costs of the different methods of clearing,  Chairman Almond mentioned that he had enquired from  residents in his area, if this would affect the price of power to  the consumer, and if so;- how much? Director Nicholson had  made enquiries into this and had been unable to receive any  specific figures. In the opinion of Director Lee, this was a  moot point at best, as the Regional Board had come out  irrevocably against spraying.  Director Nicholson was not in agreement with the figures  presented for clearing. He felt also that Hydro was presenting  them with scarcy figures which could influence the opinions  of some people. He made a motion that a letter be sent to  Manpower asking them to investigate a work incentive grant.  Although it was felt by Director Lee this was something that  Hydro should be looking into themselves, it was still thought  to be a good idea, especially if the matter went to court, since  they would then be armed with figures from their own investigations.  A motion was passed that the Regional Board would apply  for letters patent, which would enable them to write a By-Law  protecting any area within a watershed from misuse in the  future.  ]DD  1  ii t i i i i i i i 11    n~  11  II  1  1 1- 1 1 1 i 1 1 i 1 1 1 ! 1  ; i  I M    j    f    1    r    1    M  II 1    i    1    I    1    I1    !

In a letter from the Minister  of Municipal Affairs it was  noted that the department  could not advance By-Law  96.17 which gives approval  for the rezoning of the Murphy  property at Halfmoon Bay,  without thc go-ahead from the  Highways Department. It  would be extremely unlikely  that Highways would grant  approval as thc property is  in an area which comes under  Ihe Controlled Access Highways Act. This Act is still  enforced although thc access  presently being used is not on  the main thoroughfare, a  fact which is not understood  by members of the Board.  A letter will bc sent to the  Department of Highways  in Burnaby for clarification.  Contrary to Board policy,  the firm of Arthur Cowie-  Eikos Ltd. requested reimbursement for charges  incurred during an application  for a land use contract in  Roberts Creek. The contract  in question was the Klassen  cluster development. The  Board did not grant approval  to this project, but in accordance with the By-Laws, still  charged the developer for staff  time related to the contract,  It was the contention of the  firm that reimbursement  should apply in this case,  but the Directors disagreed  and turned down the application.  Firsl readings were given  to Land Use Regulation  By-Law 96.34 at Secret Cove,  and By-Law 96.32 Development Permit. Subdivision  Regulation Amendment  By-Law 103.12, Public Dedications; Fee Amendment  By-Law 105.1; and Development Permit By-Law 163  also received first readings.  The home industry By-Law  86.27 and the Roberts Creek  Official Plan By-Law 134  were both given third readings. Procedural Amendment  By-Law 1(8) was given three  readings, reconsideration  and adoption.  Victoria Stands Firm  on Pub Dispute  The latest installment in the Lower Gibsons Pub application  saga saw Aldermen Hume and Trainor in Victoria last Thursday  to get Liquor Administration Board clarification on the current  status of the applications.  The procedure for pub applications requires the applicant to  request a site pre-elearance directly from the Liquor Administration Board. Once this approval is granted, following an on-  site inspection, the applicant must seek approval of the local  Council Local Council approval is forthcoming after submission  of plans and due consideration is given. Then and only then,  may construction begin.  Ruby Lake Residents  Concerned   About   Pollution  In the case of local applicants,  the Janowsky application for  a newly designated 'F'  license for a Marine Public  House, is the only local applicant with pre-elearance. Mr.  Woodland of the Liquor  Administration Board is  reported to have told Aldermen Hume and Trainor that  no further pre-clearances  would be given until Council  dealt with the Janowsky  application. Mr. Woodland  is also reported to have told  the Alderman that the Liquor  Administration Board's inten  tion in issuing Marine Pub  licenses was to serve the  tourists and boating public  and the main concern in service was not local residents.  Earlier it had been reported  that Mr. Woodland threatened  to take to court any applicants  who were crying foul in the  case of the Janowsky application.  The Council must now  rule on the Janowsky application before any further steps  by other applicants can be  taken.  Regional Planning  Procedural disagreements  arose over the Official Sunshine Coast Regional Plan,  at last week's Regional Planning Meeting.  Of one opinion was Director  Nicholson, who felt that thc  specific area plans should  be submitted and used as  the foundation for the overall  plan, while others thought  that the Regional Plan was a  rough outline and in no way  interfered with the more  detailed area requirements.  In defense of his stance  Nicholson cited Section 1.1  which deals with density;  this he stated would be more  adequately handled by local  officials.  In accordance with this  point of view later in the meeting, when Sub-Regional  By-Law 127, dealing with the  Gibsons Area came up, Rob  Buchan, the Village Planner,  spoke against its acceptance.  Although the final draft of  the plan had been presented  to the Technical Planning  Committee (TPC) Mr. Buchan  felt that insufficient input  had been heard from the area  in question. In his opinion of  the nine-member committee,  representation from residents  had been lacking, and in the  final meeting no one was present from thc Village of Gibsons,   Please lum lo Page 1.1  Cavalcade Underway  Sea Cavalcade, August  II, 12, 13, will kick off again  this year with the opening  ceremonies on the Wharf.  The Canadian Navy will be  visiting with us for the weekend. It is hoped there will be  open house aboard ship from  time to time throughout the  For the summer residents  on Ruby Lake the increased  popularity of tfic area is  beginning to present a problem.  Speaking on behalf of thc  Ruby Lake Landowners Association on Thursday evening  at thc Regional Planning  meeting. Mrs. Mary Spancc  outlined lhc trouble spots.  Her opinions concurred with  those in a letter to thc Board  from the President of the  Association. Those outlined  were fires, garbage and high  powered boats causing, not  only a dangerous situation  on thc water, but adding to  the noise pollution.  She pointed out that since  the Canada Day long weekend  the residents of thc lakefront  area had personally fought  and extinguished four fires.  "These,"   she   said,    were  "a directed result of overnight camping where no  facilities arc available."  On behalf of thc Association  she asked that thc Regional  Board look into thc possibility of enacting by-laws similar  to those on sonic of the Okanagan and Washington State  lakes. These deal mainly  with noise pollution.  Members of thc Board  were in agreement that a  problem did exist, but as  pointed out by Harry Almond,  one of thc stumbling blocks  was enforcement, as thc  R.C.M.P. were loath to take  action.  Director Joe Harrison noted  thai choliform counts due to  human waste were already  in evidence in the lake water.  He personally had felt uncomfortable camping with  his family when rowdy parties  were going on. and suggested  that a way to curb this would  be to disallow overnight  camping. This was seen to  be too extreme by other members, as the lake was after  all. open to the public and  should nol be restricted to a  chosen few.  Director Mulligan felt  thai while thc Provincial  government was promoting  the tourist trade through  Grace McCarthy, no help in  dollars was forthcoming. This  would bc an opportunity hc  felt, to sec3 what she could do  in the way of some practical  support.  Thc outcome of the discussion was that lhc planning  staff will be directed lo  investigate lhc situation and  conic lo lhc Board with recommendations.  Three  Boaters  Saved  Three Sechelt men. Rodger  Joe. Marshall Billy and Victor Johnny, were rescued  front thc waters off Francis  Point after a boating accident  on Saturday evening.  The three men were out  fishing in their twelve-foot  aluminum boal. when thc  wash front a fourteen-foot  boal capsized them. They  spent three hours in the  water, hanging on lo iheir  upturued boat.  Collin McQuarrie. who  with thc help of a friend. Dr.  Martin Mathiscn, rescued  them, told lhc Coasl News  that al approximately 11:30  p.m. his wife heard someone  calling help and hc set oul in  his boat to investigate.  When hc got lo thc area  �� here she had heard the noise  the men had slopped calling.  Only a small part of Ihe hull  was above water and the  men were submerged to their  necks, as Ihcy had been for  three hours. With the help  of Dr. Mathiscn Mr. McQuarrie pulled them aboard.  They were suffering from the  cold w uter and barely able lo  talk.  Before leaving lo pick them  up McQuarrie had put a call  out on Channel Nine on his  radio. He received no answer  but when he returned after  thc rescue, the R.C.M.P.  and lhc Coast Guard boats  were on Ihe scene. Someone  had heard the message and  relayed it on to the authorities.  Meanwhile, Mrs. McQuarrie  had phoned Ihe Sechell  detachment and a police car  was also present.  After bringing the men in,  putting blankets around them  and feeding litem hot soup.  it was learned ihat Ihcy had  all but given up. Thc shouts  of help that Mrs. McQuarrie  had heard were thc last ones.  All three men were taken  by ambulance to St. Mary's  Hospital for examination.  They were released on Sun-  dav.  Hydro  Holds Off  The hand-seeding of the power-  line In Pender Harbour, due to  begin on Monday morning, ha*  been delayed, pending Ihe outcome of lhc appeal lodged by Ihe  Sunshine Coast Regional Board.  Fisheries Impose Limit  VANCOUVER, B.C. (13 July,  - Dr. W.E. Johnson,  Director-General, Fisheries Management, Pacific Region, announced today that a new regulation how in effect sets a personal possession limit of twenty-five  pounds of canned sport-caught  salmon at a place other than the  person's permanent home address. Thc new regulation is  aimed at out-of-province visitors,  some of whom have made a practice of canning, daily, the catch  limit of four salmon while on an  extended stay in British Columbia, thus acquiring canned salmon far in excess of the needs of  one individual or one family. The  daily personal bag limit of four  salmon and thc unrestricted  season limit slill stands with a  maximum possession limit of two  1978)  days' bag limit, fresh or frozen,  in addition to twenty-five pounds  of canned salmon.  Sportsfishermen wishing to can  more than twenty-five pounds  may take their catch to a custom  eanner who may process the catch  for direct shipment to the fishermen's permanent place of residence. There is no limit on the  amount of canned sport-caught  salmon a person may process at  his permanent home address.  This restriction closely follows  that enacted by the Province of  British Columbia in 1946 which  bans the canning of trout and  char, taken in Provincial waters,  other than at the residence of the  angler, as shown in thc angling  licence.  weekend.

Many hundreds of  American visitors have enjoyed our  ureal natural resources while spending  considerable amounts of imported cash  in our province. Thev have enjoyed thc  fight to can their daily limit of lour salmon to take back home with them.  Restricting thc canning of salmon to  twenty-five pounds per visitor will  not only cul short the visits of these tour  ists but will likely create a climate in  which visitors may not feel welcome. The  salmon taken home by our visitors is  paid for hundreds of times over by the  goods and services purchased by these  tourists.  Will these people now freeze their  fish to take them back? Will they rush  home with their catch wrapped in  newspaper to hopefully can them at  home. How much of the catch will be  spoiled and lost? Even more to the point,  how many hundreds of thousands of  tourist dollars will be lost to preserve  w hat amounts to an insignificant quantity  of sport-caught salmon?  Hydro  The cost figures for Hydro line maintenance presented to the Regional  Board by B.C.Hydro on June 30 offer a  compelling economic argument for the  helicopter and ground application  of chemicals. Hydro's figures, which we  have no reason to doubt, were based on  1 '376 costs and indicate that over a  twenty-year period $215,000 can be saved  if il designated 350 acre area is chemical  sprayed by helicopter and $87,000 can be  saved if the same area is slashed and  thc stumps treated with chemicals, as  opposed to having thc same area hand-  slashed only.  This newspaper, and wc believe we  reflect the sentiments of our community  in this regard, is fundamentally and  irrevocably opposed to chemical spray  maintenance of Hydro line right-of-ways  and herein lies the problem. On the one  hand Hydro management is correct in  sceJung to save money in its operations;  these savings ultimately accrue to each  and every energy consumer in the  province. On the other hand, chemical  spray has become a socially unacceptable alternative in the maintenance of  right-of-ways.  At this moment, spraying is a cheaper,  and as such, an easier, alternative to  other forms of maintenance. Can there  be any doubt if this alternative were  eliminated, banned, ruled out as a possibility, ihat thc corporate expertise of  Hydro executives could rapidly find a  cheaper method of clearing right-of-  ways? In the I850's in Russia, thc  institution of serfdom was believed to  be thc only way to make Russian agriculture economically viable. Russian  liberals denounced thc institution as  socially unacceptable. Alexander II  abolished serfdom and all of a sudden,  it uas discovered that serfdom had not  been economical after all. The same  thing held in the United States with  regard to slavery.  Traditions and institutions have a way  of becoming self-sustaining. It often  requires energy, persistence, long and  tedious research and money to find  alternative methods of doing a job,  but it is more often amazing than not  that when forced to do so, the simplest  and most obvious solutions can bc  found. Hydro economists and technicians  are not going to dedicate themselves to  finding alternate methods while a cheap,  simple solution exists in chemical sprays.  Indiscriminant helicopter application  is obviously unacceptable, especially in  watershed areas and Hydro is apparently  avoiding such applications. As their  technology and expertise improves,  cheaper alternatives will be found ��� you  can depend on that. When the tide of  public concern finally forces Hydro to  avoid chemicals entirely ��� the same  process will apply, and what cost $10,000  per year to clear in 1976 will cost a fraction of that by 1986.  Many suggestions for alternatives have  been forthcoming. Seeding the right-of-  ways with low foliage like alfalfa or broom  seems an excellent longterm procedure.  Hiring students to clear right-of-ways  by hand in the summer has also been  hinted at. This last alternative, while  having some compelling features, may  be both too expensive and probably  very dangerous.  In any case, alternatives must and will  be found. Public opposition to chemical  sprays will not go away. It is too dynamic  and too popular. The more Hydro  attempts to refute this opposition, the  more its remaining credibility will be  eroded.  Breakdown of expenses on Page 13.  Poker  The biggest game ill town this week is  lhc showdown between Sunshine Coast  Regional Hoard and B.C. Hydro. At the  time of going to press, B.C.Hydro had  planned to hand-seed chemical pellets in  the Pender Harbour area beginning at  8:00 a.m.. Monday. July 17.   Although  Hydro is used to stacking the deck,  thc Regional Board's ace in the hole is  B.C.Hydro's failure to comply with basic  regulations requiring them to give public  notification of their intention to apply  chemicals. Let's hope their bluff is only  a bluff and thev come to their senses.  . .from the files of Coast News  feu  5 YEARS AGO  Mot available.  10 YEARS AGO  Not Available.  15 YEARS AGO  The new movie theatre now under  construction on the Sunshine Coast  Highway in Gibsons adjoining  Danny's Dining Rooms will be called  the Twilight Theatre.

Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  I mentioned the other day  when I was musing about my  arrival in Canada twenty-  four years ago that I was  always fascinated by trains.  It began with my first trip to  England at the age of twelve,'  or possibly before that when  we used to sit in the round  green hill of Mauchline Tunnel as children and watch  the great steam engines  hurtling the express trains to  destinations we had only  heard about. Certainly,  however, when we got to ride  on one I was hooked. For  years afterwards I perfected  my imitation ofa steam engine  taking off from a station and  played trains when cowboys  or pirates grew stale.  After I came to Canada I  had to wait until 1956 before I  could go gct a pass and travel  free across Canada. It was a  marvellous trip watching the  immensity of Canada unroll  in leisurely fashion. The immensity of the Laurentian  shield for over a thousand  miles east of Montreal  unchanging in its immense  diversity of water and conifer.  Then suddenly, the prairies  with their glimpses of thc  rural life. Another two days  almost and then thc mountains and for lhc first time the  majesty of the B.C. mountains, All this and a sleeping  berth too. Paradise.  The only regret I had was  1956 was the year that the  massive steam engines that  hauled thc twenty-five passenger cars through the  mountains had been retired  and placed wiih the more  efficient but much less picturesque dicsel. Gone was  the greal chugging start and  the marvellous and evocative  steam whistle. Thc diescls  slide into action smoothly and  quickly and their dicsel horn  is a poor imitation of the  grandeur of the steam whistle.  I remember that that first  year they had trouble in  Northern Ontario because the  dicsel horn was unfortunately  close to the mating call of  bull moose there was incident  after incident of demented  and challenged moose charging headlong at the approaching trains in kamikaze fury  until they changed the horns  on thc trains.  So though I was denied  in 1956 the pleasure of steam  I was nonetheless tremendously thrilled. I spent much of  my time between cars with the  window open to get thc maximum     sensation    of    train  motion and gaze at the  countryside unencumbered  with any glass except the  unavoidable spectacles.  Three years later 1 did it  again, alone this time. lu  1959 I had retired from the  railways in June and intended  to go lo teachers' college in  September. I had also had the  foresight lo get my last pass  so I travelled again to Vancouver for a couple of glorious  weeks then back to Montreal  and off to Europe in a Cunard  Liner full of vacational female  school teachers. Living as ii  should be ��� but I digress,  trains arc thc subject of my  story.  Of necessity all of my train  travel in the fifties was done  on the CN.R. 1 was loyally  certain that it was the besl  line and remain so today, bul  1 had heard a great deal about  the storied Kicking Horse  Pass where you could see  one end of the train emerging  from the tunnel whilst the  rear end was slill on a level  underneath entering. To see  the Kicking Horse Pass you  had to ride on Ihe C.P.R. and  they wouldn't let me do it  free. After I had lived again  in Montreal during the Expo  year I came across by C.P.R  but only as far as Calgary  and again the pass was denied  mc.  Thc Kicking Horse Pass is  the historic firsl pass. Thc  Yellow head, through which  the CN.R. navels is lower  and easier and was discovered  later but it was the Kicking  Horse Pass over a hundred  years ago which made the  linking up of this unlikely  confederal ion possible and I  wanted lo see it. 1 had to wait  until 1976 when, again  in one of the interstices of  my life with teaching behind  and journalism as yet  unguesscd at in the future.  I determined to visit my  brother in Calgary and of  course with my fear of flying  and my desire to see the  Kicking Horse Pass it was  only natural that 1 caught  a C.P.R. train out of Vancouver.  By 1976 the National Dream  is ninety years old and  changes arc in store for it.  Great inroads have been cut  in thc revenue to he gleaned  by our national railroads from  passenger travel. The airlines and the all-weather  Trans-Canada Highway have  reduced the flow of passengers who choose to travel by  rail to lhc merest trickle and  Is there anything more  the word is out that one of curious than the human  the    two    trans-continental   ego? In truth there never was  lines will be closed to passenger travel.  For years the Canadian  Pacific Railway has made  no secret of its desire to have  done with the transportation  of people. It has bigger  fish to fry with its real estate  interests, its air and steamship lines and the hauling of  freight. The C.P.R. pass  through the Rockies is by far  the least economical of the  two ��� the grades are sleeper,  the twists and turns of the  track more tortuous, the wear  and tear more costly ��� and  the likelihood is that thc  line that bote Lady Mac-  donald. triumphant on the  cow catcher, lo the Pacific  in the IHWI's will be known  in lhc foreseeable future only  to the engineers and brake-  men of the mile-long freight  trains and lo the hardy souls  who maintain thc track.  In June of 1976. however,  though I am aware of the likely  demise of the passenger service through the Kicking  Horse Pass I am less saddened  than excited. After mote than  twenty years in Canada I'm  going to ride through Ihe  Rockies in the silver observations cars of the rival  railway. The engineering  marvel of the Kicking Horse  Pass is filially going to bc  experienced and I'm a flutter  with the excitement of an  insatiable traveller who for  the previous six turbulent  years has rarely left the  .Sunshine Coast. In the next  couple of weeks I'll tell you  a little bit aboul the trip.  EBB  and I was reminded of that  fascinating fact this week.  Pinch hitting for our renowned  editor, John B.. I was confronted al the former's desk  with the vitriolic reaction to a  brief comment I made in last  week's column. 1 have on  occasion castigated bureaucrats, liberals, socialists,  conservatives and teachers.  1 have been downright nasty  to nine-tenths of the human  race and I have been insulting  and rude to thc other ten  percent but last week, in  attempting to make a small,  relatively meaningless observation, in its objective a way  as possible. I inadvertently  struck a chord so sensitive as  to put thc whole human  symphony out of tune.  A little background is in  order. This year's summer job  for the George Plimpton  of thc working class is on thc  booming grounds. Last year  it was logging, next year  I hope to land a vice-presidency at Mac and Bio. Not  only does this summer  employment provide sonic  greatly needed cash but it  is worth three or four columns  for this, our local rag.  Last week's column, some  observations about loggers  and boom men. contained the  apparently  harmless  remark  that.   " boom  men   make  better lovers." Well, talk  about waving thc Hag in  front of the bull, you'd have  thought I was talking about  something important to judge  by the reaction.    Here arc  some examples:  SONNET 116  William Shakes/mire  Lei me not in the marriage of true minds  Admit impediments. Lave is nol love  Which alters when it alteration finds.  Or bends with the remover lo remove:  Or, no! il is un ever-fixed mark  Thai looks on tempests und is never shaken;  It is the slur lo every wandering hark.

My old  man has been a logger for  twenty years and believe me,  he's the best damn lover on:  the coast.

You educated guys kill me!  You spend so much time  reading and writing you forget  what makes a good lover,  that is if you ever knew in  the firsl place. I went out  with a teacher once and hc  spent so much time talking.  I fell asleep. Like llie man  said, "those that can, do. and  those that can't, teach."  Mrs. B.C.  Dear George:  Just loved your perceptive  little remark about boom  men being "belter lovers".  My boyfriend has been on  the booms lor live years  and he's just a wonderful  lover. I can't say enough  about his warmth, kindness  and gentleness, nol io mention his body. He helps mc  clean and cook and he takes  mc lo the most interesting  places. When we're together  lie just never lets me out of  his sight. I only wish his  parents were as understanding.  Lionel X  Matthews!  One more remark like that,  "boom men make better  lovers" joke and I'm coming  down there with a chain saw  and cut you down to size.  Ever since last week's paper  the missus has been at me to  clean up my act. She didn't  know from nothing about this  lover crap till she read that  garbage of yours. Since then  she's been talking to some of  her girlfriends and they've  been wising her up about  what makes a good lover.  I come home from camp  every Friday night and all  1 want to do is have a couple  of beets and watch thc tube.

LETTERS  Rebuttal  Police news  of the week  Dear Sir:  I don't want to prolong my  exchange with Mrs. Barbara  Brodeur needlessly, but 1 believe  there is a principle involved  here which is worth getting  straight. As a dedicated supporter of thc tax revolt, I'm  behind Mrs. Brodeur's attempt to  generate interest in Ihis year's  changes in thc local property  tax. Hers have risen 40%; mine  have risen 20%. 1 have yet to  meet even one member of that  vast host whose taxes, according to Premier Bennett, have  gone down. I think we'll bc missing a bet if wc don't gct some  tax-resistance organized on the  Sunshine Coast while thc issue  is before us.  The thought 1 wanted to add  to Mrs. Brodeur's letter is that  wc taxpayers have to go into  this business with our eyes open,  and make sure wc don't end up  punishing our friends and rewarding our enemies. This  could happen if wc stop simply  at damning those agencies whose  millratc. however small, shows a  slight increase, and praising  those whose miltrates, however  large, show a slight decrease.  For instance Mrs. Brodeur  praised thc regional District  whose millratc in Area 'A'  dropped 3/4 of a mill to 3.429  and damned thc Pender Harbour  Health clinic whose millratc rose  1/3 of a mill to 1.370. But the  services provided by lhc Health  Clinic are a wonderful bargain  to the taxpayer while thc services  Area 'A' receives for the 3.429  mills it sends to thc Regional  District arc questionable to say  the least. We should instead  praise thc Health Clinic Board  for holding its millratc so low and  ask thc Regional District what the  heck il docs with thc much larger  sum of money we send it.  By exercising this sort of  discrimination wc can hopefully  direct our tax resistance toward  thc elimination of government  excess and waste without harming efficiently run and worthwhile services.  Howard White,  Madeira Park. B.C.  Roberts Creek Volunteer  Fire Department News  By Brill Varcoe  There were two fires in Roberts  Creek this week. Thc first  was on July 13, one half mile  cast of the store. It burned  100 feet along thc beach. It  seems that people tried to put it  out unsuccessfully. The logs on  thc beach arc tinder dry. The  Fire Chief felt that if the call had  come in thirty minutes later,  the bushes would have burned  and caught on to the trees, then  spread to thc summer cabins.  Slings  (cont'd)  Hell, if lhc old lady keeps  this up I'm going to stay  in camp and go fishing.  Unhappy Hooker  There it is. and quite a  lesson for mc besides. You  can do a lot of things to a  person; steal his money,  wreck his house, smash up  his cur, take away his job,  insult his integrity, call him  stupid, even break his bones  but as soon as someone casts  a liny shadow of doubt on  his or her ability as a lover,  then you're in trouble.  to*  The second fire was on thc  17th. It was successfully put out  by thc property owner, who also  notified thc Fire Department.  At this time of year when  things arc extremely dry, if any  fire looks like it could gct out of  hand, notify your local Volunteer  Fire Department. The Roberts  Creek V.F.D. will inspect your  house and property to make sure  it is safe.  ��� #p 9Ji ij* *^*|* fP r|% *j* *J�� *|% 5f�� ���'j* *|at 9j% 3^5  NDP  SECHELT TO EGMONT:  July 7: A Skill chainsaw with a  twenty-inch bar was stolen from  Len Van Egmond's subdivision in  Porpoise Bay.

LaWkS ^flTW SJI^l  The Only Bulls  Left Here Hack Pistols part VII  During most of these early  drivings into the skidroad and  tl" downtown area in general,  I u.ts ijuite steadily employed.  Shortly after leaving high-  school, I secured a job through  a next-door neighbour, at  tin-General Hospital Laundry.  I "as a drier-boy. thc most-  it lonial and lowest-paid  employee in the place. It  wasn't exactly stimulating  work and my direct boss was  ,i .Ionian of snappish disposition with a caustic tongue.  Ninety-percent of thc staff  i'.is female, and there were  si ieral young, attractive  girls u ho kept me in an almost  pi rpctual stale of romantic  bcmusenient. But I was only  a humble drier-boy and none  ol them would give mc a  tumble. The men who worked  there were a pretty morose  and bleached-out looking lot  for Ihe most part. Some of  Ihem had been there thirty  years or more and seemed  virtually institutionalized.  They were like old lags in  jail with no hope of parole  before sixty-five. Like most  repetitive work, apathy was a  definitive occupational  hazard. Thc only guy with  much spark in him at all,  was an Englishman called  Fred who hadn't been there  much longer than me and was  definitely looking for greener  pastures. "You should get  out of this place, lad," he  kept telling me, "You don't  want to bc doing this for the  rest of your life." I was  already convinced of that.  I stuck it for about six months.  Then one day, the forclady's  bad temper got too much to  take and (quit.  My period of freedom was  brief. The U.I.C. seemed  determined to keep me  employed and lost no time in  locating me another job. It  was supposed to be a position  with a future but it was  someone else's future, not  mine. My disagreeable few  months with the Finning Tractor Company have been  chronicled before. The most  singular thing about the place  was its location on the southern fringes of the skidroad.  For a time, I was both working  in the area and hanging about  there on weekends.  Towards the end of my  ill-starred period with Finning, the job became so  unpleasant I had to literally  psych myself into going to  work. Finally. I hit on a  desperate scheme to get a  respite. Since part of the  job involved lifting, I faked a  back-injury and wangled a  couple of weeks off with  pay. I spent much of this  time downtown, vaguely  looking for another job. One  day, I had a rather nasty  adventure.  I had recently met a French  girl called Marie who didn't  speak much English but was  as dark and pretty as anyone  could ask. We'd just left  the Belle Bar and were  walking up Hastings towards  Granville when we ran into  a couple of young logger  friends of my brother's.  They were leaving for camp  thc next day and had dragged  some money for a last night's  blowout. We weren't doing  anything in particular at that  moment so when they asked  us up to their room at the  Marble Arch Hotel for a  drink, we agreed. It was not  one of the wiser moves I've  ever made but Marie seemed  willing.  It was the first time I had  ever been upstairs in this  hotel. The room was on the  third floor, small, somewhat-  shabby with a single window  gazing down on a sinister  alley. One of the young  loggers had made a run to the  liquor-store and now returned  with two bottles of bargain  Scotch. Somebody noticed  that the seal was broken on  one of the bottles. It had  apparently come off the shelf  in that condition but we never  thought too much about it  at the time. One of our hosts  opened it and poured around.  Thc events that followed,  1 find difficult to explain to  this day. I was stark staring  sober when I took that first  drink but the stuff seemed to  hit me like an infusion of pure  grain alcohol. I'd done  enough drinking to know that  such a small amount shouldn't  hit me so quickly and in such a  devestating fashion. Nonetheless. I foolishly accepted  another. By the time I  finished this one, 1 was  drunk, very drunk. 1 gazed  about me through a paranoid  blur. What the hell was in  this bonze? Vaguely, I could  sec Marie looking at mc in  some alarm. Then everything  got extremely dim and confused.  As far as I can piece it  together, what happened next  went roughly like this: I  developed a blind fixation  that Marie was stuck on one  of the other guys. On the  strength of this, I staggered  over to the open window and  attempted to jump out. It  took the combined efforts  of the two loggers to pull  me back. Following this, I  managed to burst out of the  room and headed for the  street. It was a safer way  down undoubtedly but 1 was  in no condition to be going  anywhere. Marie tried to call  me back but I was much too  aberrated to listen.  My memories of the following events are equally blurred  and obscure. I forgot all  about Marie and the loggers  and blundered off towards the  uptown area. There was a  waitress in one of the Granville cafes, we'd nicknamed  Cleopatra and on whom I had  a bit of a crush. Irrationally.  1 made a bcelinc for this place  and evidently began badgering her for a date. Cleopatra,  under the circumstances,  was quite good-natured about  it. Not so, the prim woman  who managed the place. She  ordered me to leave before  she called the police. By the  time the request registered,  she had done just this.

I woke thc following morning on a steel-slatted bunk in  what I dully realized, must be  thc City drunk-tank. My  clothes were rumpled; my  pockets empty. I had a dull  headache and a blur in my  memory where thc latter part  of yesterday should have  been. Across from mc,  an ancient wino sat on a  second bunk, wheezing,  hacking and gasping. There  was vomit on the grey,  filthy, cement floor. The door  �� as unlocked and I piled out of  the vile cell forthwith. The  drunk-lank in the old City  Jail was simply a regular  cell-block. Only the violent  prisoners were locked in their  drums. Thc rest were allowed  to wander about thc squalid  block as they pleased. Thc  night's haul was not all rubby-  dubs by any means. There  were a couple of well-dressed,  bcwildcrcd-looking men who  looked to be first-timers  like myself. I joined them and  we paced disconsolately  back and forth. "My old  lady's going to goddamn  kill me!" one of them lamented.  "What do they usually  give you for first-offense?"  I wondered. (Thc fact that I  w;is under twenty-one was  bothering mc more lhan a  little also.)  "You got no problem,  kid." growled a grey-whiskered, bloodshot-eyed  veteran. "Gaddam suspended sentence, most likely.  I'm good for three months  myself. Fourth time this  year!"  It was still early in the  morning and the time dragged  leadenly by. No one had any  cigarettes. Bedraggled old  boozers rolled butts that had  been rolled from other butts  were released from the tank  and led to a sort of bench-  less, concrete pit that abutted  on the courtroom. Five at a  time, we were ushered out  into a small dock to face  the music. My dockmates  were four of the grimiest,  most-hopeless winos in the  whole crew. One of them was  the man who had spoken to  me in the tank. He drew  three months in Oakalla  just as he had predicted.  The judge, a bored and  spidery man, sat behind his  high bench dispensing  indifferent justice in a toneless  voice. Hc was rumoured to be  a considerable alcoholic himself but he held thc shaky  derelicts in obvious contempt.  As I stood there, feeling  embarrassed and demeaned,  I glanced briefly at thc  crowded courtroom, caught  the eyes of a girl 1 knew and  looked away in shamefaced  confusion. She was staring  at me with an expression of  absolute disdain. My turn  came. I received a warning,  a suspended-sentence and  quitc-suddetily. was back on  the street.  The whole thing was completely inexplicable. Perhaps  one of the loggers had slipped  a Mickey Finn in my drink.  They didn't seem the type  but you never could tell. 1  didn't run into cither of them  again so never found out. It  effectively spoiled my budding  romance with Marie who got  it in her head that I was either  epileptic or some kind of  nutcase. Whatever it was. I  was agraid to touch Scotch  again for years.  I ended my illegal holiday  and returned to work but the  writing was already on the  wall as far as that job went.  I parted company with thc  Finning   Tractor   Company  and choked the harsh smoke Chris returned from camp and  down.    Around seven-thirty, I told him I was game to try  a   token  breakfast  of soggy the Woods.    We flew   north  toast   and   weak,   lukewarm together that July.    I didn't  coffee was dispensed. Finally, SCc  the  City  again   for  six  court-time rolled around.  We months.  Pender   Library  Many books have been added  to the Pender Harbour Library.

It's not as vague and  general a question* as it  sounds. Some people aren't  content to rhapsodize about  the future or reminisce  about the "good old days".  Their reaction to change is  immediate and direct. Take,  for example, the case of the  Greek buggy-drivers. Last  week, on a small Greek island,  a group of seventeen drivers  of horse and buggy cabs,  whose traditional tourist trade  was being siphoned off by the  recent introduction of a modern bus, gave vent to their  frustrations by stealing the  bus and pushing it off a cliff  into the sea. This somewhat  radical demonstration of their  feelings on the subject of  Progress resulted in their  being arrested and transported to Athens to await  trial. Since they live in a  country now ruled by military  dictatorship, a form of government not noted for its concern  for civil rights or its tolerance  of anarchistic behavior, these  men must have known beforehand that the official reaction  to their protest is likely  to bc quite severe. Still, in  spite of the notorious inevitability of change arid the  often catastrophic consequences of resistance, human  beings continue to try to  escape the unavoidable collision with the future.  Closer to home, we have the  unfortunate case of Colonel  Jaques Painchaud, recently  dismissed commanding officer  of Canada's elite Airborne  Regiment. Reacting to Defense Minister Barney Dan-  son's public statement that  he was considering a  reassessment and perhaps a  change in the role of the  Airborne Regiment, Colonel  Painchaud expressed his  dissatisfaction verbally and  publicly. As a result, he was  relieved of his command. If  the interchange of remarks  was, as both men admitted,  possibly the result of a misunderstanding, why should  Mr. Danson have gone to  the extreme of firing Colonel  Painchaud, a popular commander whose dismissal  has, according to reports,  seriously affected the morale  of the country's finest troops?  One cannot help but wonder  if this action was in any way  related to the officer's suggestion that the Minister  himself be "replaced" for  making "irresponsible"  remarks.  Petty politics aside (and  there's a sweeping statement)  there are some serious issues  behind the "misunderstanding". Mr. Danson originally  spoke of a re-evaluation of the  role of the Airborne Regiment. Times change, the  demands upon Canada's  limited armed forces change  with them, and the forces have  to adapt more quickly and  radically than would a larger,  better-equipped army. Mr.  Danson also spoke of being  unable to tolerate insubordin  ation by senior officers. Again  he has a point, but only up to  a point. One of the things  that is both attractive and  frightening about putting on  a uniform is the abrogation of  responsibility involved; a  soldier is expected to obey  orders without question or  criticism. Under military  law, the penalty for failing  to do so can, in certain circumstances, be death. Yet  since the Nuremburg war-  crimes trials after the Second  World War, the soldier's  responsibility to think about  and question the orders of  his superiors has been increasingly stressed. Admittedly, the records of the trials  from Nuremburg to the trail  of Lieutenant William Calley  referred specifically to  soldiers ordered to commit  "atrocities", but when the  questioning begins, where  does it end? Where do you  draw the line between  "atrocity" and the legalized  mass murder that is war?  If a soldier questions the  decisions of his officers, why  shouldn't the officers question  the decisions of politicians?  In a totalitarian state the  distinction between military  and civil law is immaterial.  But we live under a form of  government called democracy  and we take for granted our  right to free speech. Soldiers  and officers in the armed  forces of a democratic country  are also citizens of that  country. Enlistment is not  disenfranchisement. Colonel  Painchaud cannot help resenting the shuffling and potential  breakup of the regiment of  which he is so proud any more  than Mr. Danson can help  having to constantly reorganize an army on a limited  budget to try to meet the challenge of changing times. It  is very sad that as a result of  what appears to have been  a problem in communication  the Minister of Defense may  become alienated from and  resented by the men of the  forces, a capable senior  officer's career has been  seriously damaged, and one  of the finest units in the  army badly demoralized.  So, while you're trying to  dance to the rhythm of  change, there are two things  you can do (the Two-Step);  you can talk and you can act.  You can do either one or both,  preferably both, and they  can all get you into trouble,  as the above examples show.  It's a risk that, in a democracy  in particular, you're obliged  to take. But if the talking is  ever going to rise above the  level of the coffee-break  gasbagging of lunchroom  sages and the action is to go  beyond random anarchistic  outbursts, they must be  organized. Man is a social  animal. Since our beginnings  we've had to plan and act  collectively in order to survive the challenge of a changing environment. Wc call  that organized talking and  acting "politics", the science  of change. To be Continued.  Over and Out.

Photo by Peninsula Photographers^   Local Artists Exhibited  By Joan Warn  Kerttu Viitanen and Senja Bou-  tilicr show water-colours and  acrylic paintings beginning July  25 at The Estuary, thc summer  gallery on the Gower Point waterfront.  These two women show a close  companionship in their subject  matter because they have shared  many similar experiences, being  mother and daughter. Senja  spent a number of childhood  years on Nelson Island where  Kerttu was her schoolteacher and  where both were particularly interested in the art assignments  of a correspondence course education. Senja remembers the subtle colours and effects of mist and  rain, seas and wild flowers. Her  muted, gentle paintings are evocative of thc coast in its peaceful moods. Her quiet greys and  blues show the influence of Toni  Onley, who was her teacher in an  art course at the University of  British Columbia.  An artist's eye often seeks the  colours it has grown accustomed  to, and Kerttu Viitanen looks for  thc vigorous designs and patterns  that come from working many  years with fabrics; also from her  acquaintance with European folk  articles, for she has lived and travelled in Europe. She knows  plants well, both wild and domesticated. Into her paintings of harbour scenes and plant life are incorporated both strong colour and  design.  The island living that both  these women have shared has  given both an ability to persist  through difficulties and lo make  sturdy and rapid headway.  Though they have drawn and  painted for some time, water-  colour is to both of them a comparatively new medium, and their  work is coming along strongly.  Robert Jack, of Roberts Creek  known locally for his illustrations of Hubcrrt Evans's poetry.  and for his sensitve drawings and  watercolours. will exhibit in this  same week or the one following.  The Estuary is situated on  the Gower Point Esplanade, next  to Bonniebrook Trailer Camp. It  is open weekdays, evenings, and  weekends from 2:00 p.m., or by  appointment, 886-2681.

You are up against a  usual problem: the curse of a  woman's response, which is  slower to rise and slower lo  decline. She's determined to gel  off. so she keeps you busy.  Read about women in The Joy  of Sex. There arc so many  women pretending to bc satisfied,  at least this one is honest. You  will make a good long distance  runner if this keeps up.

Catch a Falling Star  By C,Christensen  They're paving the Salmon  Valley Road. Extending il,  pushing on it, making ii all-  accessible without effort.  They may defeat their purpose. Soon. I fear, no real  seeker of natural beauty will  find it there anymore. Is it  time, already, for remembering when?  There used to be a place   north of a grey boom town; a  respite for the eye, for the  soul, for a traveller through  pulp-mill city. I was seventeen when 1 went to Salmon  Valley for the first time.  November, and it was under  snow; silent, charmed, faraway, and only twenty-four  miles from where I'd been  all my life, I took to il as if it  had been nurtured there,  organically grown. no  chemical-additives, for me  personally.  And in a way. il was pari of  an unknown legacy. There  were ihree young women,  sisters in white who used lo  picnic Ihere. play softball in  the 1920s; flappers, dark  beauties. They rowed and  fished in lhc clear, busy  Salmon River, and the two  more daring younger ones,  bul   not    my   grandmother,  swam there loo, Thev were  sort of rncey, and mosl  especial beauties; ii can'l  be said loo often.  And then my grandmother  had three daughters. Thev  grew up in the Depression  and, more than an off-bcal  diversion by then, I suppose a  picnic in Salmon Valley was  one of the few no-cost outings  around, if there was a vehicle  with gasoline available.  During that span of some  thirty years. I imagine the  town itself had some charm.  Al least, it was not spewing  the chemical smell and raking  in the money, in those days.  However, in my memory, 1  can place the date of the  visible boom: I was six and  they started to encroach on  absolutely everything. The  place my other, my paternal,  grandparents had firsl come lo  from England, and where  later I picked blueberries.  raw virgin forest, was peeled  clean. One month I was picking fruit; a few months later,  on my return, it was gone.  It is now a myriad of subdivisions and shopping  centres. Bv the age of eight I  knew somewhere deep that I  had to preserve what used lo  be, in my safc-kecp-sput  inside: because there was  irrevocable change going  on. All the adults used to  sniff and quip. "It's the sweet  smell of money." and I would  look with childish eyes over  the clay cutbanks for dollar  signs. To this day. I smell  a bad smell, reality, when 1  go there ��� and 1 always  planned to leave.  But north on Ihe Hart  Highway, and so long  undiscovered by me because  it was just a little, din-road  turn-off. lies Ihe Salmon  Valley Road. 1 returned  lasl week as I do regularly,  and 1 couldn'l keep the lears  back. Thc turn-off is under  construction', a cloud of dusi.  It has been made wider, safer,  and in lhc process, down have  come the cottonwoods; there  are no bushes and no wild-  flowers, no lupins, coming  up to meet the road.

In thc  v inii v ihcy skilled home down  lhc mad Hc says it was a  magic cold land. I can move  into his body and look; become  six years old, green-eyed, and  I'm skaiing on hard bumps,  children moving everywhere,  red nosed, red checked;  w hite puffs rising from all  their happy mouths in the  sixty degrees below. I'm  wearing knitted mittens with  idiol     strings you     conic  around the first bend and  there stands the log church  built when Ihe Beauregards  were the first homesteaders,  in a field high on a hill. Today  it's empty; in those days an  ancient organ made holy  noises on Sundays. Scrambling over the railroad tracks  and up the hill in skates is  diffictill. Children dig their  blades ill sideways, little  crabs, al lhc road's edge  in ihe hard, brilliant snow,  through the layer of ice  crystals. It's about 3 o'clock:  it w ill be dark in an hour.

There is a circular  grove ol i otionwuuds slill  standing in thc middle of the  hay.field there: 1 always  exj l-ci to see Botticelli's  women in the spring, d. .ing  rings, around, falling in heavy  purpli lupins. In the winter,  the snow, clean and lit by  cold sun, extends for  No season mars that p....e.  Old ghosts linger there.  On the right runs a smaller  field, where old Henri, the last  of the Beauregards. lives in  his shack in hay J wild-  flowers. Hc travels the road  on a rusty bicycle with wobbly  wheels. He hasn't any teeth  and he smiles a great hole  and lifts his hand when you  pass in a car. Then he regains  In  il  his balance. He stubbornly  insists on taking a crop of  hay from his wild field, with  defunct machinery and a lot  of heart. He accepts no help.  Hc sold the land once, then  refused to leave it. Hc  forgets it's not his anymore,  fights when thc people with  Rights conic, and they have  given up and hc lives there  'til hc dies. If you sec him  moving down thc road on his  bike with a pail hung over lhc  bars, and ask him what he's  doing, he'll tell you he's catching falling stars. There  aren't any in the pail yet, but  he's on his way right now to  where one just landed. And  he has a whole, long theory  (practical, we may suppose)  on the method, the way to  catch a falling star. I'll not be  thc one to say he's wrong.  I close my eyes and consider  what the inside of his old  shack must look like: wall to  wall stars! Isn't he a beautiful, crazy old French man?  Further beyond Ihis land  the farms remain; and the  long wild stretches of grass.  And Charlie Reynolds'  corner, where stand three old  log buildings, their roofs  gone; stand like Druid structures, in a strangely religious  setting, where the sun at  evening moves on the ancient  wood: where 1 always look  and look again to learn what  it is, to wonder how places  of such mystery happen and  by what force. Who was  Charlie Reynolds? Nothing  ever moves, nothing changes  on that property. I've never  even seen a fox there.

In the low  net scores we have Alec Warner  with 124; Ted Kurluk, 125;  Boris Meda at 127. This is a  handicap tournament; therefore  it is thc low gross who will win.  In other golf news, thc training programme for youngsters  interested in golf is well underway.  This is a six week course  sponsored by the Club Match  Committee and is open to teenagers recommended by members  as having potential.  Proof of the success of this  type of iraining can well be  seen in Kenny Hinks who look  thc course and is now one of  the lowest handicap members  in thc Golf Club.  Coast Strokers  By Dennis Gray  Working one's way through  university is no easier today than  it ever was. However, a young  friend of mine found that by good  management and frugal habits,  he was able to complete his  second year within his budget,  and when hc landed a well-  paying summer job, he decided to  buy the motorbike hc felt he deserved. Mike bought Ihat bike  as he docs everything: carefully  and with considerable thought.  Consequently, he got a bike hc  was happy with.  On his first trip, Mike and his  girlfriend went to Kamloops.  The weather was warm and sunny  and when he returned, it was obvious that the anxieties and  tensions of two years' study and  deprivation were draining away.  They took many weekend trips  over thc next months, and although their trip to Oregon was in  wet, miserable weather, they didn't seem to mind; at least, they  were able to laugh about it later.  When Mike had purchased  the bike, it had been with thc intention of selling it before thc end  of thc season, hopefully without a  loss--so in the first week of August hc began to advertise. Hc  sion learned that finding people  who wanted thc bike was easy;  it was finding one of these people  with thc money that was hard.  so when a young couple drove up  one evening in a late model car,  looked his bike over and offered  to pay in cash, Mike was quick to  agree to let them have a test ride.  After all. they left their car--  which was obviously worth more  than the bike.  After they drove away,Mike  began to worry that they might  have an accident. The girl was  hardly dressed for riding. In  fact, she was hardly dressed at  all. Perhaps this distraction had  made him overlook checking the  fellow's driver's licence and identification. Then he began to  worry how he would stand, legally, if they had an accident while  riding his bike, using his licence  and insurance. He needn't  have worried; they were professionals-professional thieves.  You see, Mike never saw them or  his bike again, and when hc went  looking for them in their car, hc  was stopped by the police. He  was in a stolen car!  The bike was not insured for  theft, and because of the loss,  Mike had to work through the  winter instead of going to school.  He says that in a way, he was  lucky; he might have spent the  time in jail for car theft. Looking  back now, Mike is philosophical.  He says hc probably learned more  as a result of that incident than  from a year in school. Mike was  taking economics.

John came healthily into thc  office exactly at thc prearranged  time; hc found mc looking exasperated and thinking I had a  hundred things lo do, whereas  I could easily have gone for a  coffee and not been any further  behind.  Knowing that this was all a  put-on and that I was actually in  control of thc situation, hc  said, "Well I guess you won't  bc able to make it today."

Garden Bay  We're not saying who  fire fighter is, but he  any Department  this fine upstanding  would be a credit to  perfect efficiency and mumbled,  "Sure, I'm ready, lei's go."  Having been just a shade more  on the ball than I. John had been  in Madeira Park the previous day  and picked up a scoop net from  Ray Kraft at the Fisheries, so  we were armed for combat.  The reason for our expedition  was thai John had been down to  thc heronry in thc area to check  on it. It's doing fine. Darn, I  said 1 wasn't going to mention  herons for another month, but  what thc heck. While he was  there he noticed that some of  the sniall pools still had a few  fish in them; they were doomed  cither from a lack of oxygen  in thc water or asphyxiation  when thc pools finally dried up.  Here wc were.  As soon as we arrived I realized  that my outfit was somehow  lacking. Instead of hip waders  and a strong pipe of tobacco to  keep the mosquitoes away, I  had my green checkered slacks,  work boots, and cigarettes,  which didn't keep the bugs  away, and John wouldn't allow  me to smoke in his car. He was  a bit more sensible and wore  running shoes and short pants.  Nothing daunted. 1 rolled my  pants up as high as they would  go and bravely marched into thc  water.  Thc main pond was about knee  deep with quite a few fair-sized  trout and salmon fry in it. After  a few minutes of mc coming at  them from one end and John  chasing them into thc scoop  from thc other, wc noticed two  things. One. Ihe waler was  getting muddy; and. Iwo, thc fish  not realizing we were trying lo  do them a good turn, were hiding under a large root al thc  edge of the pond.  Not to bc outdone, John  armed himself wilh a pointed  stick and tried to chase them  out. Every so often one would  poke its head out and I'd snafoo  it with Ihe scrap, but after a  while they caughi on and  wouldn't budge. Ihe unapprccla-  live fish: imagine being scared of  two monsters splashing around in  their domain ��� even if it was  shrinking.  Wc left the pool for a while  and tried our luck elsewhere.  In sonic of Ihe smaller pools,  there were a number of dead  fish. The bullheads seemed to  bc thc first to go, but where the  pools were in the direct sunlight  thc fry were going belly up, too.  All told, wc caughi around  sixty fish; they were mostly  fry. A few of them though  were little cutthroat. I say little,  bul one of Ihcni was around  nine inches. 1 caughi him. We  look them up lo lhc bridge in lhc  main creek and released them;  thev all swam away happily.  It was only after wc had  finished thai I remembered thai  1 was in the middle of moving  house out to Roberts Creek and  my sodden boots were the  only footwear I had with inc.  This would not have been too  serious under normal circumstances ��� I could have set  them in front of the lire and  toasted my toes while they  were drying. Not so that evening.  I had to go 10 ihe Regional  Board meeting. I went off into  thc darkroom which serves as my  pari time clothes closet and found  the heaviest pair of woolen socks  I could, drained out my footwear,  put lhc socks on hoping they  would soak up enough water  that they wouldn't leak, and  headed off to the meeting.  It turned out that il wasn't  only a Regional meeting, hut a  Planning meeting as well.

PH: 567-9850 #29  More Regional Board  Coast News, July 18,1978  Continued from Page 1  As a direct result of this  situation, half-acre lots had  been designated within the  Village, which in his eyes,  was unacceptable in a high  density area. He recommended that the half-acre parcels  be slated for less populated  land outside lhc Village  boundaries. Hc also asked  that thc matter not be forwarded to the Village for  recommendation until another  public meeting had been held.  Another thorn in the side  of thc Planning Committee  is thc reaction of the Highways Depttrlincnl whenever  an area outline is presented  to them. In 1973 a grid system  of development was worked  out between the Regional  Board and lhc Department of  Highways. This system was  to facilitate alternate travel  patterns in the case of emergencies, and was agreed to in  principle by the Board. What  has now transpired is that any  plans which conflict with the  letter of thc grid pattern or  long range major highway  development is being immediately vetoed by Highways.  With these two points still  open for clearer understanding Director Mulligan suggested that an evening be  set aside next month to deal  with these specific problems.  The date of the meeting  was set for Thursday, August  3.  BLANKET BRITISH COLUMBIA  & YUKON CLASSJfJEP_AJS_  BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES:  Good financial returns!

PHONE    886-7611    -    886-2139  Under unfinished business,  Director Mulligan recommended that the application  for a marine pub at Hopkins  be turned down, on the  grounds that, at a public  meeting, the residents had  been 85���90% opposed to  it. His recommendation was  carried unanimously.  A letter was received from  Sam Bawlf, Minister of  Recreation and Development,  regarding expansion of public  access to waler recreation,  but unfortunately in thc eyes  of the committee members it  was too vague to give a clear  understanding of his position  and clarification of specifics  will be requested.  The ongoing question under  By-Law 10.3.13 of whether  subdivision of land should  adhere strictly to the ten  acre minimum or be allowed  some leeway came up once  more. The indication from the  Department of Highways  was that they would not be  prepared to use discretion  and would stick strictly to the  ten acres: this was not felt  to bc practical. It was the  Board's feeling that flexibility was warranted in many  cases, especially where road  allowances were responsible  for land being under the ten  acre minimum.  At thc onset of the discussion it was felt that leniency should be given to the  specific area in question, but  on Director Mulligan's recommendation, it was enlarged  to   include   the   total   area.  Thc motion was carried with  only one negative vote from  Director Harrison.  Vic Walters made application for amendment in By-Law  96 in order to place his gravel  operation within an Industrial  3 zone. This requires an  amendment to the Regional  Plan as only part of it was  presently zoned Industrial.  The Board agreed to it in  principle.  Two amendments were  requested under By-Law 103.  Thc Aliens applied for a  subdivision in thc Porpoise  Bay area. Thc property was  originally in the Agricultural  Land Reserve (ALR) and then  transferred to suburban  under their Regional Plan.  Under thc regulation it complied with those for a G  classification and was given  acceptance, providing access  was given to the beach road  in front of thc property.  Art Angell applied for rezoning of his Sargeant Bay  property for subdivision and  thc surrounding land be  removed from the ALR. It  was Director Nicholson's  recommendation that the  subdivision not bc granted,  but the removal from thc ALR  be given consideration.  At the conclusion of the  meeting Director Joe Harrison  informed the members that  he had been getting complaints from his constituents  about the Department of  Highways expropriating land  for road use. Other areas had  not had similar complaints.

Wedding  Richard Sicotte. only ".son ol'  Clarence and Eileen Sicotte of  Gibsons, was married in Revelstoke on July 8 to Mary Men-  ghini. only daughter of Peter and  Anna Menghini of that city in  St. Francis of Assisi's Roman  Catholic Church. The best man  was Richard's friend of longstanding, Jose Martinez, son of  .lose and Consuelo Marline/, of  the Casa Marline/ Restaurant in  Davis Bay. Other residents of  the Sunshine Coasl who attended  this warm, traditional Italian-  style wedding were the bridegroom's parents, his sister  Dcbbi Gibson and her escort  Allan Crane, thc bridegroom's  uncle and aunt, Ernie and Cccillc  Riet/e and Lygie Marline/.  Other members of ihe family  who attended were Mr. and Mrs.  Bill Swallow of Revelstoke, Pal  and Herb Doering of Winnipeg,  Manitoba, Roald and Lynn Spiess  ul Vancouver, Terry and Janice  Watson of Port Coquitlam and  George and Clara Sicotte of  Wyndel, British Columbia.  Janice Watson, the groom's  immediate elder in the family,  w as one of lhc bridesmaids.  Richard was born in 1953  and hc graduated from Elphinstone Secondary School in 1971.  Alter graduation, he worked at  the Gibsons Standard Service  Station before leaving for Revelstoke in 1973 for a position with  thc Canadian Pacific Railway  Company where hc is still employed. After a honeymoon  ill California. Richard and Mary  Sicotte will be returning to  Revelstoke, bul Richard expects  to bring his bride lo his birthplace for a visit in the not-too-  distant future, and he hopes to  see some of his old friends at  thai time.  Do you remember the Kwah-  tahmoss Film Society? Between  1972 and 1976, this Film Society  programmed over one hundred  outstanding films at the Twilight  Theatre in collaboration with the  management of the theatre.  The Society was affiliated with  the Canadian Federation of Film  Societies, and ils newsletters  revealed thc fact that the Kwah-  tahmoss Film Society's programming was unexcelled anywhere in  Canada for scope and variety and  was surpassed numerically in  only two or three university  cities. In fact, the Kwahtahmoss  Film Society was thc only one in  Canada whose operations were  based in a local independent  cinema. Ihis meant that films  were shown in the professional.  35mm format with which no  16mm operation con compete for  clarity and brightness of image.  Only two or three university  based film societies (Calgary,  Edmonton and Saskatoon) have  35mm facilities.  I consider the Sunshine Coast  indeed fortunate in that the  management of the Twilight  Theatre have expressed willingness to make Ihe cinema available again for thc Film Society  programming at a concessionary  rate. My endeavours to make  sueh arrangements with thc local  theatre in Whitehorse met with  suspicion and a prohibitive fee  structure, but I did institute a  16mm Film Club there which  w as a great success and which is  entering the 1978/79 season with  a membership in the region of  ISO. I hope there will be at  least that many people who arc  interested and perhaps even  excited by the prospect of the  forthcoming season for the  Kwahtahmoss Film Society. I  have only just concluded discussions with Mr. Boothroyd  with regard to leasing the theatre  for the Film Society, so no  programmes have been booked  yet. As President of the Whitehorse Film Club, however, I  attended the 1978 Annual General Meeting of the Canadian  Federation of Film Societies  where I saw several films which  could be strong contenders for  inclusion in the Society's programme.    Among these would  maaaaaaaaaaaaamam*  be Alain Resnais' latest film and  his first with English dialogue.  Providence, which is currently  being shown at the Varsity  Cinema in Don Barnes' Summer  Festival. Although I might not  put that film in with the top  three which I saw in Saskatoon,  I think the film well repays  viewing if only for John Giclgud's  superb performance as a dying,  alcoholic writer who is living his  final novel in a dream world  which fluctuates between reality  and fantasy and illusion. Other  strong possibilities for inclusion  would be thc films of Jaques  Toti which have recently been  rc-rcleascd. His Trafic was  shown in a previous Kwahtahmoss Film Society programme,  and Mr. Hulot's Holiday is  presently being shown at lhc  Denman Theatre. His first film,  however, Jour De Fele, is much  less well-known and unjustly  so. Jaques Tati is undoubtedly  thc funniest man to emerge  since the days of the great  silent comedians, and his films  are, in fact, virtually without  dialogue. In Jour De Fete, he  plays thc part of a postman in a  small French village who is  "inspired" by a film on automation in the postal services in  North America. His endeavours  to emulate this super service  make for an hour and a half of thc  utmost hilarity, and as I recall  from the dim and distant past thc  only words which emerge from  thc occasional hub-bub of conversation were "allczfous en".  Sub-titles, therefore, are quite  superfluous in this marvellous  French comedy.  Watch this newspaper for  further news of the Kwahtahmoss Film Society. I would be  delighted to hear from anyone  interested in "art" films (1  will attempt to define this term  in my next article) with regard  to any aspect of the proposed  Film Society's operations including suggestions for programming. Please write to mc in  care of this newspaper. In the  meantime, do watch the programmes for the Twilight  Theatre's regular presentations.  I read thc Sunshine Coast News  while I was in Whitehorse and  noted many films in the theatre's  schedule which were well worth  viewing, Annie Hall and Cousin  Couslne just to mention two.
