Array e  :  legislative library  parliaments buildings  victoria, b.c.- - ' 80,1  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15$ per copy on news stands  Second Class Mail Registration No. 4702  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  September 18,1979  Volume 32, Number 38  'Developers war' over Secheh zoning  Regional Board Director Harry Almond, School Board Secretary Treasurer Roy Mills and Vice Chairman Al Lloyd,  Director Charles Lee and Alderman Morgan Thompson on the proposed joint facility sites on September 11.  Screen shifted  Salamanders in  Gibsons water  After two complaints by Gibsons residents of salamanders in  their water supplies, the small pond of two used for the Gibsons  water system was shut off last week.  "It's an embarrassment but it is something that happens," said  Municipal Clerk Jack Copland.  The pond's screen is believed to have shifted or dislodged itself  from the water pipe allowing objects���like salamanders���to find  iheir way into the water system.  Dennis Carroll of Shaw Rd. was out in his backyard watering  when the pressure in his hose slowed and then broke open again  when a decomposed salamander came out of the hose. Carroll's  complaint was the second in two weeks.  As a natural water cleaner, salamanders are accepted in the  pond but not in home water systems.  Engineers are now looking into the feasibility ofa concrete base  and cover for the two ponds. Council has asked engineers to  prepare a cost estimate of the total containment so it can be  included into a bylaw, and then work begun.  One possibility for the ponds, in use for more than 20 years, is a  system similar to Nanimo's. The base would be set up to create a  wave system to act as a natural filtering system. Council has been  interested in such a system for some time.  Drainage of the pond will begin next week.  Over Hydro role?  ELUC disbanded  "The developers are having a war and the people of Sechelt are  I being caught in the middle," was one of the closing remarks made  at the September 12 public hearing held at the Senior's Hall  regarding the Sechelt Community Plan.  A 204 name petition opposing industrial and public assembly  land use north of the Sechelt highway bypass, (existing Hydro  right-of-way), was presented by Henry Hall at the September 12  public hearing.  The petition began, "This letter is a petition to Council  opposing the heavy density zoning proposed along the Porpoise  Bay Road extension between Wharf and Trail Avenue adjoining  the Sechelt Duck Marsh.  ' "To change this small congested area (approx. 7 acres) from its  present residential state to industrial public assembly and high  density apartments will serve only to increase the land value for  the two owner developers of the land at the direct expense of the  adjoining and surrounding residential property owners...To now  build a joint facility government office that will house 50  employees and approve a bordering industrial park within 20 feet  of these residences is both shocking and disgraceful."  The petition appears, after stood up to speak for a "buffer"  preliminary investigtion, not to  conform to Municipal Act  petition guidelines. Under the  Municipal Act a petition must  have the name, address and  legal description of property  owned or resided on. The  petition lacks property  descriptions.  According to the Municipal  Act, Clerk-Treasurer Malcolm  Shanks must determine the  sufficiency and validity of a  petition.  "Although possibly not legal,  it does show the opinion of a  by Carol Berger  Remains of a salamander that found Its way into  Dennis Carroll's garden hose in Gibsons.  major portion of the  population," Shanks said upon  hearing of the Municipal Act  requirements.  At a September 11 meeting  of the Sechelt Ratepayers  Association the petition had  been accepted. Of the reported  37 ratepayers present, 36 were  ��� i - in agreement and one, Cliff  Linsey, opposed.  The petition affects the  possible acquisition of Len Van  Egmond's property, Lot 2,  between Wharf and Trail as a  public assembly zoned site for  the joint facility as well as  Pebble Holdings Lots 30-to 35  designated service/industrial  just north of the Hydro right-  of-way.  The petition letter was  drafted by Henry Hall on  Saturday, September 8 after  three Porpoise Bay residents  came to Hall with their  concerns. The petition was  circulated by Porpoise Bay  residents.  At the September 12 public  hearing   Len   Van   Egmond  on the Highway bypass route  after many of the 55 in  attendance showed their  opposition to the designated  service/industrial by a show of  hands.  Van Egmond stated that  with a limited access highway  and Wharf and Trail as the only  two collector streets, a  residential area should not be  adjacent to the highway.  Henry Hall disputed Van  Egmond's buffer zone idea,  from industrial to commercial  to residential, saying that the  area was too small for "step"  zoning.  Van Egmond also said that  property owners surrounding  Highway 101 and collector  roads would soon be requesting  zoning to commercial and  service/industrial.  At the opening of the  meeting, Sechelt Planner  Dennis Walton's report of the  Community Plan was read.  "A relocated Highway 101  through the presently indicated  corridor will clearly have a  profound impact on the  Village...and the manner in  which residents will view the  area as possessing residential  qualities," the report read in  part.  Pebble Holdings lots 30 to 35  although rejected as service/  industrial zoning by the  Regional Board, is still  designated service/industrial  on the Sechelt Community  Plan.  A review of the Vicinity Plan  is set for November possibly to  take out specific reference to  industrial designations within  Sechelt.  The Regional Vicinity Plan is  "too detailed" and Sechelt  zoning "not in our realm,"  according to Regional Planner  Bill Lindsay.  Planning Committee  Chairman Joyce Kolibas told  the Coast News that she  wouldn't take the petition  officially. "Petitions aren't any  kind of legal document, just an  opinion," she said. According  to the Municipal Act, public  hearings are held for residents  to officially oppose governmental action.  "They didn't object because  they didn't come to the public  hearing whether their names  are on it or not," Kolibas said  after the meeting.  Kolibas also said that Hall  was using the petition, "for his  own gain".  Opponents petition  Joint Facility  in doubt again  Porpoise Bay resident Henr)  Oten, corner of Pebble  Crescent and Trail Avenue,  said hc was opposed to thc  buffer idea for Iwo reasons���  "One side is already residential.  We are already aware thai ihe  highway will come but we arc  hoping, of course, that it will  take another 20 years. Once  they start anything there,  knowing our developers, they  will buy it up and in due time  have nothing else ihere but a  huge industrial complex.  "If Hank Hall hadn't started  the petition we would have,"  Oten said.  The public hearing, called to  ratify the Sechelt Community  Plan for registration in  Victoria, may now face further  delay until November's  Regional Vicinity Plan review  in order to prevent Community  Plan amendments once lhc  plan is registered.  by Carol Berger  Environment Minister Rafe Mair announced on September 15  ihat the Environment and Land Use Committee (ELUC) will be  nut under the direction of the Ministry of Environment, raising  Tears that the ombudsman role of the committee in environmental  issues has been lost.  ELUC had been instrumental in delaying decisions regarding  the controversial Cheekye-Dunsmuir 500 kv Hydro transmission  line.

Gates was not available for  comment on how this latest  move to the Ministry of  Environment would affect the  presentation of his report of the  meeting to ELUC.  Also on September 13, Ivo  Cargnelli of the Sakinaw Lake  Home Owners Association  received a letter from Defense  Minister Alex McKinnon.  Cargnelli described the letter as  "obtuse". McKinnon suggested  in the letter that because of the  conflict as to whether or not  Hydro can put a line through  the Reception Point area, site  of a military reserve, then why  not skirt the area? In view of  recent talks between Hydro  officials and Coast representatives, his suggestion appeared  "somewhat behind".  The outcome of the Cove  Cay substation location in  Earl's Cove proposal put forth  at the September 6 meeting by  Sakinaw representatives is still  unknown.  a feasibility review of the Cove  Cay proposal, but failed to do  so.  Hydro said they would  contact financial institutions  involved to see if purchase of  the land would be possible for  use as a site for a 25 to 35 acre  substation.  Reporting to the first  meeting of the School Board in  the new school year,  Superintendent Denley said,  "Morale is at a very high level in  all the schools in the district,"  and that the teachers have "the  most professional zest ever and  he feels very comfortable with  the way the new school year has  opened.  The first days ofa new school  year are always a challenge for  staff and students, especially at  the senior level where the co-  Bear trouble  in Gibsons  ordination of courses, time  schedules and classroom  availability is complicated.  The addition of 55 students  above the 600 expected has  strained the facilities at  Elphinstone. There are 205  students registered in grade 11  and 164 in grade 12, for a total  of 369 senior students,  Gibsons Elementary had  also to do some re-organization  to accommodate 28 unexpected  students and has a complement  of 68 grade 7's this year.  Bowen Island School is also  bursting at the seams with  increased enrollment over and  above the June forecast.  Trustee  Hodgins jokingly  asked the Board not to think of  the mobile classroom as  available, it may very well still  be needed when the new school  opens later this year.  Kindergarten enrollment is  also up with additional sessions  now being arranged for  Roberts Creek and West  Sechelt.  There are 2,524 students  registered in the District, plus  205 children attending  Kindergarten.  All schools except Elphinstone are presently staffed to  meet needs, Superintendent  Denley said. One teacher has  been   transferred   from  Chatelech where enrollment  was below expectations and he  expects hiring of the necessary  additional staff to be  completed quickly.  Sechelt Alderman Morgan  Thompson opened the  September ' 11 meeting of  School Board, Regional Board  and council representatives  with an apology for the "mix  up" in the joint facility land  acquisition.  "We picked out The site that  we though, best. It was our  impression that the School  Board was to build it and the  council to find the property,"  Thompson said.  Council announced their  preference for Len Van  Egmond's property (Lot 21  between Trail and Wharf last  week to the surprise of School  Board officials.  A decision on the joint  facility location to house  School Board, Regional Board  and Sechelt Village offices will  not be made until the  architect's report is received at  the next meeting of the SCRD  on September 27.  The architectural firm of  Killick, Metz, Bowen and Rose  will present a feasibility report  at the meeting on the  properties.  The building site was never  put up for tender but council  did receive eight applications  from developers and office  space from Teredo Mall.  At thc Tuesday meeting of  representatives, prospective  lots were toured and then  discussed back in the board  The two properties under  greatest consideration are Lot 2  between Trail and Wharf  owned by Len Van Egmond  and Lots 12, 13 and 36  combined al the end of Inlet  owned by Henry Hall.  All properties reviewed  would have to bc rezoned to  public assembly. As Clerk-  Treasurer Shanks said, "Th*:  current Village office properly  is zoned residential. No one  ever bothered to change it."  Building on Henry Hall s  property would be limited lo  1/4 to 1/2 of the land because  of the Hydro right-of-way it sit  under. The Egmond proper!;,  would require considerable  land fill. A terrace-type  building was suggested at the  meeting, using the slope of ihe  land for entrances on both  levels.  With the September 12  release of a 204 name petition  drafted by Henry Hall  opposing both service/industrial and public asscmbK  zoning on all land north of the  Sechelt bypass highway  (current Hydro right-of-way),  acquisition of Van Egmond's  property may not be  acceptable.  The official legality of the  petition is under investigation  but Clerk-Treasurer Malcolm  Shanks, who musl decide  acceptance or rejection of thc  petition according to the  Municipal Acl. said that it  appears to be an indication of  Ihe people's feelings.  Missing boy found  by Carol Berger  Bears were very much in the  news in the Gibsons area last  week. By Thursday at least two  bears had to be disposed of in  two days and another was hit  by a car near the juction of  Highway 101 and Park Road.  One of the bears was shot  near the Sunshine Coast Trailer  Park where a bear had to be  shot last year as it was trying to  break into an outdoor freezer.  The second bear was shot  right in the middle of Lower1  Gibsons behind Ken's Lucky  Dollar food store.  Conservation Officer  Jamie Stephens attributed the  large number of bear sightings  being reported to apopulation  explosion in the Sunshine  Coast. According to Stephens,  there is an estimated bear  population on the Coast of 800  bears in comparison with a  more normal bear population  of just 200.  The crowding is causing the  animals to crowd closer and  closer to residential centres the  length of the coast as they  forage for food.  Nicholson's  aid sought  A request from the Ministry  of Education for the services of  Mr. Ed Nicholson for 20 days  during the current school year  was approved by the School  Board. The Province will pay  for Mr. Nicholson's time and,  so that his priorities will still be  to this District, the Board is  asked to decide when and how  the 20 days should be allotted.  A couple of days at a time was  the suggestion of the Ministry.  Mr. Nicholson has been  instrumental in setting up a  comprehensive system for  screening children in  Kindergarten which reveals  those who may be expected to  have problems with the  educational system.  Residents of Lower Gibsons  were awakened Monday  morning at 3 a.m., September  10 to the sound of the Canadian  Coast Guard Hovercraft Unit  landing in Gibsons.  The unit was called in to  assist inthesearchforamissing  boy in the Pender Harbour  area.

In a disagreement with  another boy, Raven went into  the bush and then fell asleep.  Residents of Warnock Rd. in  thc Francis Peninsula area  participated in the search and  more people were being  arranged to help. The overwhelming response by  neighbours was greatly  appreciated by the boy's  parents.  According to Sechelt  R.C.M.P., they had planned to  use the Gibsons police boat to  pick up the Coast Guard search  dog in a tight situation but the  boat wasn't working properly.  Rather than risk a break-down  in Howe Strait, the Coast  Guard came from North  Vancouver by SRN6 hovercraft.  Upon landing in Gibsons,  the Coast Guard received word  that the search was over and  that search dog, "Fritzo" and  his crew could return to  Vancouver.  Escaped  convict  captured  Gibsons RCMP apprehended Bryan Ross Harrison,  31, on September 8, ending his  escape from the minimum  security holding of Snowden  Forest Camp near Campbell  River.

What makes  llieir position awkward is the apparent  new-found popularity among Canadians  for ihe nationally owned petroleum  company,  The political gurus of the Conservative  parly are urging that something must be  done to Petrocan in accord with  Conservative pre-election rhetoric since  the lories have been remarkable in office  thus far for turning iheir backs on most of  the major positions taken during the  campaign. The loss of Petrocan may be a  very high price to pay so that the  Conservatives can retain some tattered  \ .'Slices ui credibility.  Meanwhile one possible escape hatch  lhal Conservative strategists have  identified s to follow the "people's  :apitalism"route taken by Premier Bennett  ivheu lie distributed the shares of the  British (olumbia Resource Investment  Corporation lo thc populace at large. Even  Bennett admits, however, that the  distribution "I BCRIC shares was both  tremendously expensive and extremely  difficult and doubts whether Petrocan  could be 'BCRICed' as the latest linguistic  abomination from the Tories has it.  Meanwhile in Britain the government of  Mrs. Margaret Thatcher, which like ours  was elected threatening to turn over the  British oil holdings in thc North Sea to  private enterprise, has taken another look  at Ihe situation and decided that it is  economic nonsense to sell off petroleum  holdings.  It appears that despite Bennett's doubts  that the same thing can be done with  Petrocan as was done with the investment  corporation in this province and despite  the fact that the right-wing government in  Britain has concluded it makes no sense to  de-nationalize the oil, Joe Clark and his  image makers are still insistent on  tampering with Petrocan to preserve some  sort of image that they believe they still  have. It is the type of totally warped  thinking which saw the Americans rain  masses of bombs on the south-east Asians  because they feared loss of face if they  stopped.  So Petrocan will be dismembered. After  the fiasco of thc Israeli embassy move the  Conservatives would rather do the wrong  thing than appear to be weak by changing  course. It is folly on the tragic scale.  Sechelt and the developers  Il is litlie short ol disgusting how public  assemblies in Sechelt arc being sabotaged  by developers intent on getting their own  way al all costs. At meeting after meeting  either Hoyden Killam or Henry Hall bring  discussion to a virtual hall as they filibuster  for llieir own ends.  pirccior Charles Lee in explaining his"  surprising choice of Mr. Killam as his  regional alternate said that the man has  brains. Wc do not doubt it but as Mr.  Killam jeers and heckles at council and  public meetings���at one council meeting  wilh Ins bare feet on the table���we must  conclude thai his social development is  lhal of an intelligent but rebellious  adolescent.  Mr. Hall was at it most recently, leading  Hank's jinssL' in opposition to the rezoning  lo industrial of some residential lots in thc  Porpoise Hay area. "Would you like to live-  across the street from a body shop and  watch the wrecks roll in?" demands Mr.  Hall rhetorically.  Unfortunately wc remember the Cameo  Lands development that Mr.Hall touted as  a high-class residential development on  Field Road. When it didn't sell in its  entirety this same Mr. Hal! sought and  received industrial rezoning beside his  residential lots to the chagrin of those who  had already bought his lots. The property  owners in the Porpoise Bay area would  have more credibility without such a  spokesman.  What is needed is someone from Sechelt  who knows how to chair a meeting and  who will refuse to allow the kind of  arrogance which is becoming so  unfortunately commonplace. A good firm  grip of thc chairman's gavel and the  application of Roberts Rules of Order  would do much to contain the disrupters.  %  .from the files of Coast News  FIVE   YEARS  AGO  Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department announce that after December  31 they will no longer transport  victims ol accidents or sickness to  St.   Mary's   Hospital   in  Sechelt.  35 Fijians arrive at Elphinstone  YMCA Camp to begin a program of  three months of intense cultural  learning The group is a part of the  Canada   World   Youth  exchange.

This was for years the main estuary  base for Hudson's Bay Company sternwheelers that battled the Skeena  River as far up as Hazelton. When in 1908 the Grand Trunk Pacific  crossed the river, to make its terminus at the up-coast entrance, Port  Essington's role as a major shipping centre was doomed.

Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  ��*  _*_____ ^  George Matthews  1  I'd like to offer some  rambling and,- I hope, not  entirely dis-connected  observations on the subjects of  rambling bears and A.E. Milne  the English author.  A.E. Milne is, of course, best  loved and best known as thc  author of the Winnie the Pooh  books. These childhood  classics, we are told, were first  told by A.E. Milne to his son  Christopher Robin as bedtime  stories secure in the midst of  rural England.  The hero of his tales, the  peerless Winnie, was modelled  after the Teddy Bear the young  Christopher cuddled in his cot  as Daddy told him his bedtime  story.  Winnie and his friends  Eeyore and Tigger amble  through the peaceful English  countryside having little  adventures with leaves floating  under bridges and the like.  They are quintessentially  English, peaceful and rural and  their irrestible charm and  gentle magic offer delight to all  ages as do such other  masterpieces for children as  Alice in Wonderland, Treasure  Island, and Peter Pan and  perhaps Tom Sawyer and  Huckleberry Finn from this side  of the Atlantic.  Now there is no intention  here to quarrel with the figure  of Winnie the Pooh or the  affable A.E Milne himself.  Even in these iconoclastic  musings some things arc most  certainly regarded as sacred.  Our observation is merely  that many people have their  feelings about bears moulded  by such things as Teddy Bears  and Winnie the Pooh. As  children grow a little older and  visit Stanley Park or some  other zoological site they see  thc white bears floating lazily in  their pond or spreadeaglcd and  somnolent in the sun. The cute  black fellows are begging for  peanuts in the area next door  like harmless shaggy buffoons.  Even here on the Coast of  British Columbia where wild  bears are our constant and  close companions very few of  us ever see a bear in the course  of our daily rounds and our  impressions too often may still  be those formed in the nursery,  at the zoo, and in the pages of  such as Winnie the Pooh.  The last time I was at Stanley  Park I was standing in my  customary fascination at the  bear pit. There wasn't a great  deal happening. The polar  bears were all asleep, as were  most of the black bears. But  one big black fellow was  restless. Round and round he  prowled testing the limits of his  confinement. The lady beside  me was holding up a little boy  so that he could see and we  were all three watching the  prowling bear.  "See, he's coming along the  bottom now," said the lady to  her son. The bear prowled surefooted along a narrow ledge  near the bottom of the pit. It  was not a ledge that went all the  way around.  "I wonder what he'll do when  he comes to the wall," said the  lady. "Maybe he'll go  backwards all the way. I don't  think he can turn around on  that little ledge."  The prowling bear reached  the impasse. He looked up at  the wall above him. It was  about seven feet to the concrete  edge. He stood on his backlegs,  put just his front paws on the  concrete edge and effortlessly  bounded up the wall. The  lady's gasp was eloquent.  The point is that bears are  awesomely agile, awesomely  powerful wild animals.  Moreover, though by and large  the bear is a peaceful berry-  eater and a scavenger, it is also  true that he or she is easily  frightened or angered, the two  are never far apart, and  anything that powerful and  agile which is frightened is a  very dangerous customer  indeed.  We are moved to these  reflections as a result of the  shooting ofa male black bear in  the middle of Lower Gibsons  last week behind the Heron  Cafe. The bear was frightened,  treed, and surrounded by  school children and Conservation Officer Jamie Stephens  had absolutely no option but to  shoot the bear. He was  subjected to abuse by some  present whose idea of what a  bear was or could do had been  formed by such as Winnie the  Pooh or televisions's Gentle  Ben.  It may be worthwhile  observing that there are no wild  bears in England and A.E.  Milne could spin his son a  charming bear story secure in  the knowledge that the child  could not run up to cuddle the  first wild bear he came across.  There are wild bears on the  Sunshine Coast, in fact there  appears at the moment to be a  considerable overabundance of  them. In itself, this is dangerous  because a bear needs a  considerable area of its own  territory in which to feed itself  and the jostling and  competition amongst them  must be intense.  Any bear that is driven into  the midst of town in broad  daylight must have been chased  off several territories by  members of his own kind  before being forced to the  extremity of daylight prowling  just off the main street on a  busy weekday. Such a bear is  almost certain to be in an  irritable, dangerous mood to  begin with, getting tired of  being pushed around and  almost certainly hungry.  Anyone who was not  convinced that such a bear  must be destroyed would be  well-advised to keep their  Winnie the Pooh like  conceptions between the covers  of the book or, like the lady in  Stanley Park, they could find  themselves being very quickly  and completely surprised by  what bears can do should they  feel so inclined.  You've all heard about the  boss who is kind to his  employees, smiles at everyone,  buys his secretary flowers on  her birthday and when he goes  home at night he beats up his  wife, yells at his kids and kicks  the dog. The story is so trite as  to be not worth retelling. These  days we have a new kind of  boss, ususally a business  management graduate, who  smiles at his kids, kisses his wife  goodbye, pats the dog and then  goes to work and terrorizes his  employees.  This story is worth retelling  because far from being an  isolated phenomenon or even  the first part of a bad joke, the  kind of situation I describe is  not only common but is  becoming epidemic. I can't be  sure why this is happening, why  your boss and his boss and his  boss are making greater and  greater demands on those they  supervise but some of the  possible reasons aren't too  hard to figure out.  First of all, in times of  relative economic stagnation  there is a tendency, particularly  in bureaucratic organizations,  to tighten the belt, to demand  more of people, to attempt to  get more work for less pay. In  more robust economic times  where expansion is taking place  organizations tend to give  employees more responsibility,  allow more initiative, trust  workers   more   and   thus  My Papa'a Waltz  The  whiskey  on  your breath  Could make  a  small boy dizzy;  But  I  hung  on  like  death:  Such  waltzing  was  not easy.  We  romped until the pans  Slid from  the  kitchen  shelf;  My mother's countenance  Could not  unfrown  itself.  The  hand that held my  wrist  Was  battered on  one  knuckle;  At every step you missed  My right ear scraped a  buckle.  You  beat  time  on my head  With  a palm  caked hard by dirt,  Then  waltzed me  off to  bed  Still clinging  to your shirt.  Theodore Roethke  supervise them less closely.  When times are tough the  opposite occurs. Demands for  increased efficiency from the  top of the organization are  translated into tightening of  rules, close supervision and  downright managerial  paranoia. Typically, the  workers at the lower end of the  organization bear the brunt,  they become the receivers of  this collective organizational  paranoia.' What may be  happening in other words is  that your boss may be under a  tremendous amount of  pressure from his boss to get  tough with employees.  Related to the economic  basis for organizational  accountability is the increased  intensity of career competition.  When organizations are in the  process of retrenchment, the  opportunity for the upwardly  mobile is diminshed. Those  employees with management  ability who, under normal  conditions of expansion, would  move into mid-management  positions are not getting those  opportunities. As a result, the  most skilled and aggressive of  them are frustrated and  looking for a chance to move  up when the old man spends his  three weeks in the hospital  recovering from his breakdown. On the other hand, some  of those bosses who were  promoted during periods of  expansion and don't possess  the skills needed to manage are  under tremendous pressure  from thc young Turks looking  for promotion. Under this  intense competition, your boss  may feel insecure, and as a  result, he is starting to chew  your head off cverytime you  spend a couple of minutes too  long in the John.  Along with the stagnant  economy and the demands for  greater efficiency, is thc current  fad of scientific management.  Since the early 1920's  organizations have fluctuated  between the scientific approach  to management and the human  relations approach. In the Ws,  human relations was in vogue.  Bosses were taking courses in  how to get along with people,  how to get in touch with their  inner selves and how to be nice  guys. Nowadays, encounter  groups, sensitivity training and  touchy-feely sessions have been  replaced   by   time   lines, More letters  Coast News, September 18,1979 3.

Recognition  Editor:  Well, at least I got my name  in the paper.  J.S. Browning  I have ta smtpl* mil  own ��&j��c*  Slings and arrows(cont'd)  productivity   grids   and  management by objectives.  Workers have been demoted  from living, thinking human  beings to units of production  and theoretically predictable  components of the organizational system. Regrettably,  the human components have  human weakness and failings  and if they can be replaced by  machines so much the better, if  not then they should be trained  to at least approach mechanical  perfection.  Still another reason for the  closer scrutiny of employee  performance is the rapidly  increasing ability of management to know more about what  is happening in the organization and to find out much  faster. Productivity and  organizational activity can be  analyzed much more thoroughly and accurately with the  use of computers and new  kinds of accounting methods.  If some component of the  organization fouls up, the boss  can know exactly who or what  went wrong and he can know  about it right now. With this  kind of close scrutiny of  activity all the way down the  line, the stress felt by each level I  of the organization is greatly  increased. When people work  under stress they often  breakdown. They may begin to  show evidence of breakdown  by becoming nervous, flying off  the handle, acting erratically  and often displaying bizarre  behavior. When your boss tears  your head off for some  insignificant act or begins  making ridiculous demands, it  may be a sign that he is starting  to crack up. Chances are you  are getting it not because you  aren't doing a good job but  because you are the ultimate  victim of the stress which  comes from collective  organizational   insanity.  Instead of getting up tight  about it, just smile to yourself  secure in the knowledge that  the boss is on the way out or on  the way to the rubber room and  when he's gone maybe you will  get his job���that is if you think  you could stand the strain any  better than he did.  ���OMAN  CATHOLIC SERVICES  Rev.

But there's more to be said  for heating, with wood than the  fact that it saves a lot of money.  Wood smells and sounds  good as it burns. And, in an  age of vanishing resources, it's  one form of energy that's still  growing.  In fact, there's almost as  much forest land in North  America today as when the colonists first arrived. So regardless of other energy shortages,  we've got wood to burn.  The burning question.  But for centuries, the problem with wood has been efficiency. What should we burn it  in to get the most heat out of it?  The fireplace is no solution.  It gives us beautiful dancing  flames, but very little warmth.  Some 95% of firewood's heat  disappears up  the chimney,  pulling a lot of  expensive  furnace-heated  air with it.  Benjamin  Franklin's stove,  and the other  cast iron stoves that followed  were an improvement. They  limited the amount of air that  could reach the flames, so  wood lasted longer.  And they trapped the  heat inside, so that it  radiated throughout Ihe  room.  But still there  were problems  Cast iron expands a great  deal when it's  hot, allowing  air to seep in  through seams and feed the  fire. And most of these stoves  did little to burn the gases that  escape burning wood, containing most of its heat potential.  The burning answec  Then came the Fisher Stove.  Its unique two-step combustion  chamber re-circulated wood  gases back into the flames for  almost total combustion, resulting not only in more heat  but fewer ashes.  The Fisher Stove's patented  spin draft controls  and virtually airtight construction  meant almost absolute control over now  much air reached  the fire.  And its carefully  welded, solid steel  construction made sure every  Fisher Stove would deliver  years and years of remarkable  heating efficiency.  Naturally, imitations followed. But there's still no other  stove around that can offer all  the patented design features  you'll find in a Fisher Stove.  Save 50% or more  on your heat bill.  We can show you a variety  of Fisher Stove models. One of  them can cut your present heating bill by Sty/r or more. Or  maybe even eliminate it  , entirely.  i.SJ And as authorized Fisher  Stove dealers, we can  give you answers to any  y questions you might have  about heating with  wood. So come in soon.  Maybe you can't do  much about what people  have to pay these,days for  gas, oil or electric heat. But  with one of our Fisher Stoves  in your house, you can do  plenty about what you have to  pay.

Coast News, September 18,1979  1  Lost Downtown  Part II  George and 1 wander up to  Goofs Pad on Davie Street, a  much-seedier but considerably  looser establishment. It is  located in a former grocery  store, long, narrow, dimly-lit.  The wills are lined with  sackcloth and people. A thin,  blonde girl with long, ironed-  flat hair, is playing a guitar and  singing folk songs in a  surprisingly deep voice. Goof  Stevens sits at a special table  under one of his murals, a  bizarre, impressionistic  crucifixion scene. Goof is one  of Vancouver's first real  beatniks, a young artist who  has actually been on the road  and hail lesbian patron in New  Orleans who sends him money.  Ik- is black haired, frenetic and  funny. We sit down and give  him a drink. "Let's write  poems," he shouts. We haul out  our notebooks and set to  scribbling gibberish. Goof,  shaking with laughter,  produces an impeccably  -.cripted but utterly incomprehensible diatribe consisting  mostly of four letter words.  Drunkenly, we read great  profundities into it. Goof lives  on a sort of shelf in the back of  ihe place and sculpts driftwood  down on Sunset Beach. He has  shown us some of these  carvings on reeling post-  midnight odysseys. One day he  will trade me a sketch for a  poem and embark for Europe,  leaving only mad memories  and his fading, red-painted  name on the sidewalk in front  of the shuttered club that will  close soon after his passing.  From Goofs it's only two  brief blocks to The Bunkhouse,  also on Davie .which, courtesy  ol my dream, exists contemporaneously. Thc place is much  larger and better organized  lhan thc former haphazard  operation, a bona-fidr folk club  with proper food and  occasional big name acts.  Sonny   Terry   and   Brownie  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  McCiee will record an album  here at the zenith of their  popularity. Tonight, Tom  Northcott is playing. He is at  the outset of his career at this  point, still a bit nervous and  wet-behind-the-ears. He runs  through a brief repertoire of  familiar folk standards in a  good enough voice. I get tipsily  obsessed with the idea that I  might be able to peddle him  some song lyrics so I corner  him between sets and foist a  couple of crumpled poems on  him. Hc accepts them  somewhat suspiciously. 1 guess  he figures I might be having  hint on for some obscure and  drunken purpose. Alter years  of imitating hoodlums, I  suppose I look and sound more  like a gangster than any sort of  poet. Of course, he never uses  the songs. His taste is better  than mine. As far as poetic  maturity goes, I'm still in grade  school.  As we head back towards the  city-centre along Homby, we  pass the stairway that leads up  to Danceland, on its last legs  now but once the most  flamboyant of the downtown  dancehalls. There were several  of them in the old days���The  Embassy, The Howden, The  Pender Auditorium���but  Danceland was generally  considered to be where the  action was. My mind slides  back another decade to when  the place was in its heyday.  Occupational hazards of  girl-chasing in the early days.  But I haven't climbed that well-  worn staircase in years.  Fleetihgly I wonder if that  incorrigible old man is still  there, twisting now to rock  music with yet another  generation of nubile teeny-  boppers. I'd climb up and find  out but the place is closed.

Countryside, Concerts  by Susan Elek  Countryside Concerts has  burst forth with the promise of  ten delectable concerts this  coming year. The first of these  concerts will be held at the new  Arts Centre in Sechelt on  Sunday September 23 at 7:30  p.m.  Wc are very fortunate to  have with us three of the finest  musicians Vancouver has to  .iffer: Joseph Pelge, violin;  Stephen Wilkes, viola and  Kazuo Tokilo, flute.  Joseph Peleg, a former  member of lhc Purcell String  Quartets earned his Master's  Degree in Performance at  Indiana University as a pupil of  lhc  distinguished  Joseph  iingold. Mr. Peleg won  -cholarships for 11 consecutive  vears from the America-Israel  ' uliural Foundation and from  I diversities. In the summer of  1971 the Canada-Israel  inundation    sponsored    his  'udics with the great Joseph  Szigeti, who said about Joseph,  "I consider Joseph Peleg an  unusually gifted professional  and have great confidence in  his future."  Stephen Wilkes, violist,  received his formal training at  the New England Conservatory  of Music in Boston, Massachusetts and at Tanglewood where  he was a Leonard Bernstein  Fellowship recipient. He has  had additional studies at the  Banff School of Fine Arts with  the Hungarian String Quartet  and William Primrose. Since  joining the Vancouver  Symphony Orchestra in 1969,  Mr. Wilkes has also  participated with such  ensembles as the Baroque  Strings of Vancouver, the  Vancouver New Music Society  Ensemble and the C.B.C.  Vancouver Chamber Orchestra.  Kazuo Tokito graduated  from the Oberlin College  Conservatory of Music in 1972  with a B.A. in flute. Mr. Tokito  has participated in the  Tanglewood Music Festival  and concertized in Japan and  England in 1973 - 1975. He  studied at Indiana University  where he was appointed an  associate instructor of flute.  Since receiving his Master of  Music Mr. Tokito has been  with the Vancouver Symphony  Orchestra as piccolo/third  flute and assistant first flute.  Serenata, comprised of a  somewhat unusual combination of instruments, will be  heard in a delightful program  of Beethoven, Handel-  Halvorsen and Szervanszky in  the new Arts Centre's first gala  concert.  Because of Serenata's  engagement at the Queen  Elizabeth Playhouse Sunday at  11:00, this concert will be held  in the evening. The rest of the  concerts however will be at 2:00  p.m. as last year. All of the  concerts requiring a piano will  be held at Elphinstone School,  but the location will be  announced each time to avoid  confusion.  The next concert in the series  on October 21, will feature  pianist Robert Silverman, one  of Canada's leading artists  today. Don't miss this rare  event which promises to be a  dazzling experience for  everyone.  A piano trio with Paula  Sokol, violin, Anthony Elliott,  cello and Susan Elek, piano,  will be heard on November 4.  The U.B.C. Chamber Singers  will be singing on November 23  and the last concert in the first  half of the series will feature ,  solo piano works with Susan  Elek and a dance, mime and  music presentation with  Gerardo Avila and Gillian  Lowndes on January 27.  Tickets for individual  concerts are: Adults $3,  Students $1.50. A subscription  to all 10isonly$20and$l0and  a subscription to each half is  $12.50 and $6.25.

SPCA may fold  A membership letter from  SPCA President Bill Walkey to  all members makes it clear that  more active assistance and  participation will be necessary  if the presently held temporary  warrant for an SPCA is to be  transformed into a permanent  warrant for the year 1980.  Walkey points out that the  lack of support is especially  disappointing in view of the  fact that so many people have  taken advantage of the spaying  clinic.  The SPCA President finds it  not surprising in view of the  lack of support that this year's  executive have indicated that  their committments prevent  them from continuing an active  role this year.  "...continuity and success  will depend on members  volunteering for nomination  for next year. In the event that  such nomination is not  forthcoming, it would be  necessary for me to advise  Head Office to cancel our  permanent warrant and  dissolve the branch at the end  of 1979," says Walkey.  Anyone interested in  throwing energy into keeping  the local SPCA branch alive is  asked to contact Walkey at  885-2505 by September 30.

As a baby  I learned to talk quite early and  as my mother has frequently  reminded me, "haven't shut up  since". Apparently I could and  often did recite an inexhaustible repertoire of nursery  rhymes long before I could  have understood the meaning  of most of the words, let alone  the meaning of the verses  themselves since many of them  refer to customs or events that  are anachronistic. The strange  thing is that most of us, with a  moment's concentration, could  probably call up and recite a  fairly faithful version of the  nosense rhymes or songs we  learned at our mothers' knees,  while we can barely recall what  we read in last week's paper.  Certainly many phrases from  nursery rhymes, be they  misunderstood or meaningless,  strike the child's mind with the  hypnotic force of an  incantation. Dylan Thomas  said that his love of words and  his whole impulse to write  poetry stemmed from his  childhood exposure to nursery  rhymes. "That was the time of  innocence; words burst upon  me, unencumbered by trivial or  portentous association; words  were their spring like selves,  fresh with Eden's dew, as they  flew out of the air. They made  their own associations as they  sprang and shone. The words,  'Ride a cock-horse to Banbury  Cross', were as haunting to me,  who did not know then what a  cock-horse was nor cared a  damn where Banbury Cross  might be, as much later, were  such lines as John Donne's 'Go  and catch a falling star,/ Get  with child a mandrake root,'  which also I could not  understand when I first read  them." Lewis Carroll's  Jabberwocky is a nursery rhyme  for adults; it puts us once again  in the perceptual position of a  child. We can actually  recognize or define only the  minor parts of speech, the "ifs",  "ands", or "buts" and a few  nouns and verbs, most of the  key nouns and verbs are perfect  nonsense, yet we respond to  them, carried along more by  the sound and rhythm than by  rational understanding.  At some time most of us have  had the experience of reading  aloud a favourite story to a  small child. If you vary even a  syllable from the text, you find  yourself in the position of  having your reading corrected  sharply by someone who can't  read. Children have a  marvelous memory for phrases  and words, as more than one  embarrassed and horrified  parent has discovered. How  does a child, in a few short  years of haphazard training,  absorb and achieve fluency in a  language whose complexities  strain the trained minds of  adults? Is the mind of a child a  blank slate, filled in by a  combination of total immersion and imitation? Or are  there fundamental similarities  of structure common to all  languages which suggest that  speech is a biological function  of the human species, at least  as much as it is a "learned"  activity. The question is not an  insignificant one, since speech  is perhaps the fundamental  attribute of human beings.  Animals and insects may  possess complex and sophisticated systems of communication, but none, so far as  we know, anywhere near  approaches the wide range of  ideas and abstractions that can  be expressed by language.  Linguistics used to be a rather  out-of-the-way study, the  province of painstaking  academicians who published  their findings in obscure  quarterlies that went unread by  all but a handful of their  colleagues. But in the last few  decades an increasing number  of thinkers from all disciplines  have begun to recognize that  the study of language has  profound implications for all  branches of human knowledge,  since without language no  knowledge, no thought, can be  communicated.

There are no  clear-cut "sides" in current  linguistic controversies, but  most of the theories put  forward are variations of two  basic positions; that of the  Behaviorists, who hold to the  "blank slate" theory that all  human behavior is "learned"  behavior, acquired after birth,  and those of a host of  opponents, led in the main by  Professor Noam Chomsky.  Briefly the Behaviorists, led  by B.F. Skinner, believe that  human beings, like Pavlov's  famous dog, learn everything  by a process of "operant  conditioning". In spite of the  overwhelming mass of graphs,  statistics and newly-coined  jargon produced by Behavior-  ist psychology, essentially what  they are saying is that all  human behavior can be  understood in terms ofa simple  "Reward vs. Punishment"  equation. Skinner's published  works Beyond Freedom and  Dignity, in particular, have  naturally been the cause of  considerable controversy  which has not been confined to  the quiet groves of Academe.  People, particularly in this  "liberated" and individualistic  period, react violently to being  told that their behavior is as  programmed and, by implication, as programmable as that  of an animal or machine.  Skinner has been dogged by a  kind of "Frankenstein" image,  the mad scientist implanting  electrodes and pressing buttons  to manipulate the millions and  the idea of a programmed or  controlled society has been  explored by a number of  science-fiction writers, usually  from a very negative point of  view. "Perant conditioning" is  easily equated with "brainwashing" and thus with a kind  of Hitlerian oppression and  uniformity. Skinner has  countered with his Utopian  novel Walden Two, and points  out that thus far man has  brought himself to the very  verge of extinction.  The clearest statement of the  Behaviorist position for the  layman is, I think, Skinner's  About Behaviorism, published  in paperback by Random  House (Vintage Books) in  1976. In it he says, "When we  say that science and technology  have created more problems  than they have solved, wc mean  physical and biological science  and technology. It does not  follow that a technology of  behavior will mean further  trouble. On the contrary, it  may be just what is needed to  salvage the other contributions".  Next week I'll take a look at  what Noam Chomsky and  some of the other opponents of  Behaviorism have to say about  that, as well as the "rumorous  midnights" and "That dolphin-  torn, that gong-tormented sea".

Being left behind alter the 2:45  pern, sailing from Horseshoe  Bay with iwo hours plus sitting  in the sun on a parking lot is  enough to try the patience ofa  saint.  Undoubtedly there is a  problem for Sunshine Coast  residents in the summer and on  weekends. However before we  .fly off at a tangent and demand  a road shouldn't we cool down  and look rationally at thc  problem and see how many  alternative solutions or options  are open lo us.' It's encouraging  to nole that those who want a  road around Howe Sound to  join up with ihe Squamish  Highwaj and were prepared to  dump the ferry altogether are  having second thoughts.  Imagine having to drive all that  extra distance in all weathers,  the added cost of all supplies  which come in increased bus  fares, late mail. We might so  easily find ourselves worse off,  not better.  While su.ch a road would  undoubtedly provide a nice  scenic summer drive, no one in  iheir righl mind would drive 66  extra miles in thc pouring rain  or snow conditions when they  could cross Howe Sound in 45  minutes of ferried comfort.  Those who live along Highway  101 and who do not work at  Port Mellon have no idea how  Ihe weather deteriorates once  you head up the Inlet north of  Langdale. Port Mellon has  more lhan double the rainfall  of Gibsons, and what may be  gentle precipitation in Sechelt  may bc a cloudburst along the  Port Mellon road; rain so heavy  youl windshield wipers can.t  cope making visibility so bad  you can only proceed with  difficulty at a walking pace.  Rain in Gibsons will often be  snow al higher elevations and  as you gct nearer the  mountains, Now, recognizing  these difficulties the cry is for a  road and a ferry.  It won Id be nice to have one's  bread buttered on both sides,  but it's rarely practical. There is  a school of thought which says  il you want something from  Government ask for the moon  because you'll only gel at best  half of what you ask for. It's a  valid philosophy and if the  push lor a road is a bargaining  point. I suppose that's fair  enough. Hut no Government in  us right mind is going to offer  us ihe luxury ofa road as back  up io a lerry system we are  already subsidizing from public  money, even if we are prepared  to pay ihe construction costs  ourselves.  Put yourself, for a minute at  thc desk of the 1 lonorable Alex  1 laser. Minister of Highways.  In his pile of mail, besides a  demand from Ihe Sunshine  Coasl Im a road link to  Squamish. is correspondence  Irom people al the north end of  Vancouver Island complaining  because construction of their  road link is not prececding fast  enough: there are several letters  about mad construction and  improvement in the northern  parts of die Province where the  economy depends upon year  round road transportation and  huge sums of money arc needed  to keep Ihe roads open and in  godd repair; Ihere arc similar  requests from ihe eastern and  central areas and the daily  reminders oi Vancouver and  ihe I '.wer Mainland's need for  Rapid Transit, some way to  speed up Ihe How of rush hour  traffic. Would you consider a  road between Port Mellon and  Squamish a high priority?  Supposing some fairy  godmother gave us thc road���  presto���just like that���would  we really use it that much?  frankly I doubt it. After the  initial thrill of being able to  For all your Carpets  Btfoosheen  No***:i��5.  drive out had worn off���when  we discovered what it was  costing us in gas, in  depreciation on our cars, to say  nothing of the wear and tear on  our nerves in bad driving  conditions, most of us are  going to opt for the ferry, time  to relax, socialize, read or catch  up on a little sleep.  Can we honestly ask the  Government to divert funds  from essential projects to  construct a very expensive  highway to accomodate a few.  of us with itchy feet? Surely it's  not a road to Vancouver we  need, but better facilities here,  for recreation, education and  health care.  That still leaves us with the  problem of ferry line-ups. We  do have a ferry committee, or  do we, which meets regularly  with Mr. Bouchard, Manager  of Corporate Communications  for B.C. Ferries. While he's not  exactly at the top decision  making level at least we can  start by talking with him. Why  don't we ask for immediate  consideration of ways to  aleviate residents problems and  frustrations. Discuss with him  the possible organization of a  residents special, the 9:00 a.m.  from Langdale and the 5:00 or  6:00 p.m. from Horseshoe Bay.  Tourists after all are on holiday  and travelling is part of the  pleasure. Maybe the simplest  would be a couple of smaller  double enders, capacity not  more than a hundred vehicles  which could shuttle back and  forth   quickly   with   the  overloads or which like thc  Queen of Alberni on the  Tawasscn route can syphon  off the trucks and RVs. And  there must be other ideas.  We're sure going to look silly  shouting for a road. We all  knew the geographical set-up  before we moved up here and  surely most of us came here  because we liked the rural way  of life and thc illusion of living  on an island. If we don't like it  there's nothing to stop us going  back to the mainland and  adding to the traffic congestion  there.  ______M      ___W^  ^^mamWt^L_^_^_U  ^D ik'    .  ne%  jOt  ��� ^^^^���^^^^H  _W**"'--\^_____^     m%m\\%\WW  Eight-eyed tarantula "Carlos" looks out from her "recuperation" tank as owner Blair  Grand shows the opening where the tarantula crawled out of her molted body.  Tarantulas make fine pets  by Carol Berger  What?���two tarantulas?  Tarantula owner Blair Grand  of Gibsons wasn't alarmed to  find the second and larger look-  a-like the morning of  September 12. "Carlos" had  moulted.  Blair began his unusual  friendship almosi a year ago  when he purchased the native  of Mexico from Unicorn Pets in  Sechelt���not one of their usual  stock items.  Most tarantulas offered for  sale are males since thev are  easier to catch. "Carlos" is  actually misnamed female.  She is already well known to  some Gibsons residents after  her second place ribbon in the  Sea Cavalcade's Most Unusual  Pet contest held in July.  Tarantulas have recently  gained a wider appreciation for  their interesting habits and  their capacity to make long-  lived and relatively undemanding pets. The mythical fatal  sting of a tarantula is really no  more painful or deadly than  that of a wasp.  "Carlos" began to moult at  8:00 p.m. September 11 after  spinning herself a carpet of silk  to lie on during the shedding  operation and finished six  hours later.  With the approaching winter  the tarantula will probably  hibernate and may not eat at  all. During other times of the  year it will be fed once a week  on live prey, usually insects.  "Carlos" can go without food  for as long as two years but  fresh water should be available  at all times.

First I should like to make it  very clear that this is in no way  to be interpreted that 1 am  throwing my hat in the ring and  becoming involved in this  subject of British colonialism  simply because I am,, so to  speak, a loyal supporter of the  Editor of the Coast News.  Actually I do not know Mr.  Burnside very well. However I  am acquainted with him well  enough to know that he is  perfectly capable of defending  his views, either verbally or in  the written form, without any  assistance from me. No, the  point of my having left, so  abruptly, the tranquility of life  in Kent during my boyhood  and gone off on a tangent is  because I heartily agree with  the Editor's views not only on  Ireland but on many of the  matters he mentions in his  Musings of last week. The  purpose of my writing this is to  justify not Mr. Burnside's view  of British colonialism but my  own.  What I have to say will, I  know, infuriate not only Mr.  Browning but possibly (if they  : read it) many of the "Britishers"  we have in our neighbourhood  including "my secretary", a very  capable and charming girl but  'very English, in fact she may  not type this for me at all and I  shall  have to submit it in  '��� longhand!  I haven't a doubt that I shall  be labelled another "dirty  Commie" but I wish to deny  that charge by stating  emphatically that I am not a  Communist, I have never been  one, nor will I ever be one. lam  however a Canadian, born in  England of pronounced  Scottish descent on my father's  side and a mixture of English  and Swedish on my mother's. I  too am a product of the English  school system and during my  school days, although it was  not one of my favourite  subjects, had to study history as  it was written in the textbooks  of that day. I grew up with thi  idea that everything the British  had done up to that data was, to  put it mildly, a glorious period  (as far as the British were  concerned) in the making of a  mighty Empire and the sole  reason that, if one consulted  one's atlas, over half of the  world's land surface was  coloured pink or possibly red  on the maps to signify that it  was either owned outright or  overseered by His Most  Gracious Majesty the King of  England. I read the stirring  stories of the Indian Mutiny,  the Zulu War and (yes John)  the English version of the  Boxer Rebellion, not  forgetting, as it appeared to me,  our almost continuing wars  with France, Spain and other  quite close neighbours. The  battles of Trafalgar, Waterloo,  the Crimean and Boer Wars  were indeed proof of the might  and glory of being British and I  was naturally extremely proud  of my background and the fact  that I was part and parcel of  this great and glorious Empire.  So far so good, but when I  eventually left home and went  out into the world seeking not  only my fortune but the truth,  what a rude awakening I got! I,  like Mr. Burnside, had to revise  my whole conception of  English history as it had been  presented to me during my  school days and only a fool  would have been blind to the  realization that what he had  been reading was not only a  distorted view of life and  history through the eyes of an  English historian and the  Establishment but, worse, was  a colossal whitewash job to  attempt to justify England's  attitude and practices in  acquiring her Empire.  Subsequently I went to sea,  to Africa to be precise, on a  luxury liner in the Union Castle  Line, not as a paying passenger  I hasten to explain but as a  saloon boy in the first-class  service, and saw the opulent  way in which the wealthy were  treated and, on my infrequent  trips ashore, saw the stark  tragedy of how the black and  underprivileged not lived but  existed.  Later I came to Canada as an  immigrant and was shocked to  find how the English were  detested in many parts of the  Dominion. I remember so well  that on my second Saturday  night in this fair country I was  involved in three fights in the  little town of St. George,  Ontario, simply because I had  decided to wear���of all  things���a suit of plus-fours  from the wardrobe I had  brought over from England.  They and my English accent  were like waving a red rag in  front of a bull to the Canadian  youths I came in contact with  and there were a few bloodied  noses, including my own.  Even later, after the War,  there were revelations of just  how this mighty Empire had  been built. I was a crew  member on a freighter that  called at the Caicos and Turks  Islands in the West Indies to  take on a full cargo of salt  destined for India. On the  particular island we visited for  that purpose there were only  two habitations fit for a human  being to live in, the fine  residence at the top of the hill  where the British Governor  lived and a slightly lesser  structure, half way down,  where the priest and his  entourage held sway. The rest  were mere hovels constructed  of pieces of salvaged lumber,  wood and cardboard packing  cases thrown together with a  sheet or two of corrugated iron  as a roof. This is where the  workers "lived". They didn't  even own a pair of shoes. Their  feet were wrapped in pieces of  burlap or filthy cloth through  which could be seen the  suppurating sores caused by  the salt they had been digging  and processing for many years,  if not centuries, to enrich the  English coffers. These were the  natives who had presumably  owned the island.  I could go on and on and  become more vitriolic in the  process. I visited Malaysia, a  country of unlimited resources,  rubber, tin, antimony, copper  and gold to name but a few.  After centuries under British  rule, it's wealth systematically  plundered and sold to build the  stately mansions and rolling  estates of the very rich in  England, the natives were still  living in bamboo huts with  roofs of thatched reeds, their  toilet facilities a hole cut in the  floor, their drinking water out  of the river. This was in the year  1950 when the guerillas were  harassing the British and  making life miserable for all  concerned. Can you blame  them?  I do not wish to ruffle Mr.  Browning's remaining years  but facts are facts and if one  cannot face them as such and  deal with them accordingly  then one hasn't learned much  from life and is still regarding  things through rose-tinted  glasses. I am deeply sorry Mr.  Browning as I have enjoyed  your letters and regret that you  have decided to part company  with "our" Coast News, but  such appears to be the case. It  might be some consolation to  you, or possibly relief, to know  that if Mr. Editor does not see  fit to print this I too will be the  next to hand in my resignation!  I have a feeling that you must  yearn for the "good old days"  when Mr. Burnside would be  incarcerated in the Tower for  treason and I would be on my  way to the gallows at Tybum!  Cheers, Mr. Browning, and  smooth sailing old boy!  *i  proudly announces  the opening  of its Gibsons Store  Friday, September 28  CEDARS PLAZA MALL  Now Two Locations  To Serve You  Come Out To Our  GRAND OPENING  ���(^  Many-ln-Store Specials  ^v       We feature a full line of  Technics, Akai, Bose Stereo Systems  Panasonic Televisions   Records & Tapes  Car Stereo  Rftt  ui  THE STEREO SPECIALISTS  @��j  cowrie st., Sechelt  885-2522  Cedars Plaza'  Gibsons 886-2917  ���v Coast News, September 18.1979  *\  The Sunshine  Second Front Page  !  1  Gibsons Auxiliary resumes p^^^^^^^^^  ��/ W      NOTICE rtFr.ENFRAI.MF.ETINr.  by Marie Trainor  A late Friday afternoon alarm brought the Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department to this  abandoned car fire on Pratt Road. The fire was quickly extinguished before flames  could spread into the surrounding woods.  Elphinstone Fun Run  Running for fun continues to  gain in popularity here on the  Sunshine Coast. First we had  the annual April Fool's Day  Run sponsored by the Coast  News from Gibsons to Sechelt,  then there was the Fun Run  sponsored by the Wilson Creek  Community Association from  Wilson Creek to Gibsons to coincide with the Sea Cavalcade  Festivities, and now the  students of Elphinstone  Secondary School are joining  the fun with their First Annual  Elphinstone Fun Run.  The first Elphinstone Fun  Run will beheld between 10:00  a.m. and 2:00 p.m. at  Elphinstone Secondary School  on Thursday, September 27.  All elementary and high  schools in the Sunshine Coast  School District will participate  in the run and spectators to the  event are most welcome,  possibly even the odd over-age  but gallant participant.

Twenty-seven members of  the Gibsons Hospital Auxiliary  resumed their regular monthly  meeting on Wednesday,  September 12, 1979 in the  Calvary Baptist Church Hall.  The President, Joan Rigby,  opened the meeting and  welcomed all members present  after the summer break and  looked forward to a busy fall  and winter programme. She  also welcomed two new  members to the Auxiliary-  Eileen Cavalier and Nancy  Strandt.  In the reports read by the  various committee chairmen  for the months of June, July  and August, 53 volunteers  worked a total of 102% hours.  Numerous knitted articles were  on display, which were sent in  by the chairman of the knitting  committee, Rene Jardine, who  was unable to attend, and will  be forwarded to the Gift Shop.  Requests have been received  from the Gift Shop for  matching bonnets to the baby  sets, baby mitts, knitted stuffed  toys, and they would also  appreciate it if our knitters used  new patterns in order to have  more variety in their shop.  Verla Hobson, chairman of the  Ways & Means Committee,  reported that Phoebe  Blomberg has completed all the  Christmas decorations during  the summer months with the  help of some of our members.  These articles will go on sale to  the public during the Aloha  Luncheon in November.  The Lions Club have again  requested that members of the  on September 25.  The President also announced, to the delight of all our  members, that Stella Morrow  has been appointed as a Board  Member for Co-ordinating  Council on the Hospital Board  to represent the six auxiliaries  on the Sunshine Coast to St.  Mary's Hospital. Her  appointment takes place on  September 26. Congratulations  Stella.  The Lower Mainland  Conference will be held this  year on October 10 at the Villa  Motor Inn in Burnaby, B.C.  Representatives attending from  Gibsons will be chosen at a  later date.  Plans are now in full swing  for the annual Aloha  Luncheon, which will be held  on November 16 in the United  Church Hall, Gibsons. The  conveners for the luncheon,  Marjorie  Leslie and Lenora  Inglis have spent most of the  summer planning for this  event. Marjorie Leslie reports  that the menu has now been  confirmed which includes  Sweet and Sour Meat Balls over  Rice, Baked Salmon, Potato  Salad, Carrot Salad, pickled  beets, etc., plus Cherry Delight  for dessert, tea and coffee-  sounds scrumptious. Tickets  have been procured and are  being distributed to the  members and local businesses  for sale to the public at $3.75  per person. Salmon being used  for the luncheon has been  kindly donated by Dorothy  and Herb Steinbrunner as well  as four bottles of pickled beets,  many thanks "Steinbrunners"  for being so thoughtful.  The next meeting will be held  on Wednesday, October 3.  Looking forward to a good  turn out.

MacMillan  is a former Golden Glove  winner and a Can-Am  participant.

Coast News, September 18, 1979  Carefree gardening \  hi Sandv Loam  A stroll down Franklin  Street along the waterlront in  Lower Gibsons lakes you back  in time to before the days of  powci mowers and L-shapcd  I R.s, back lo a simpler urban  way ol life. Here tidy, carefully  painted picket fences create a  mood and you find yourself  listening for the muted clickctty  >l a hand-push mower. I can  remember being put to bed  before dark in early summer  and liea ring that safe  comforting sound and smelling  thc marvellous mixed  fragrances of cut grass, swee'  alyssum and walling phlex and  there it all was again on pretty  I i.utkliii Stieet.  Visiting .i charming and  gallant gentleman in his  delightful garden was a  nostalgic return lo yesteryear.  Undismayed by advancing  .ears Ka\ llolbrook always has  several projects on the go. He  maintains his border garden to  perfection and works on his  cuttings and seedlings in a  small basement "putter" room  cum green house (southern  exposure).  In the garden his speciality is  unusual geraniums. He has a  Norwegian variety which is a  snow white continuous year  round bloomer with healthy  bright green leaves. The special  geranium that really stole the  show however was the  flamboyant Vesuvius, a new  one to me. It's colour is flaming  coral. The single five petal  Mowers grow in long stemmed  sprays. They are so 'profuse  I though that may be Mr.  Ilolhrooks green thumb) that  they create the illusion of a  multi-flowered shrub with dark  green, line slender leaves. 1  must have some of those for  next year and will even give  them precedence over my just  T;lie Norwegian geranium, foreground, and the  Vesuvius geranium particularly caught our columnist's  fancy in Ray Holbrook's garden.  Last week nobody identified the location of the  pictured object. This week $10.00 will be awarded to  the liist name drawn from the barrel.

Mr. Holbrooks garden, as  well as his sisters beautifully  kepi flower beds across the  same street, are well stocked  with Chrysanthemums and so  will have colour and cut flowers  until frost.  They both have a profusion  of golden button Chrysanthemums which are particularly  long lasting in the house.  Button Chrysanths, both  yellow and snowdrop give any  bouquet a starry spray look  thai just makes you feel  enormously and deliriously  extravagant. Mr. Holbrook has  built a lovely gazebo on thc  slope leading to his beach.  (Everyone should have a  gazebo for self time and navel  contemplation!) He is currently  completing terraced level by  off-shape steps and planter  boxes all thc way down to the  water. Every inch is  immaculate and there is  enough work left in this project  to keep him busy next summer  with completion expected  probably for the summer  following. It is particularly  inspiring to see a retired  gentleman so filled with plans  and ideas and so active in his  neighbourhood.  Meanwhile, back at the  Artichoke heart balm. The  lovely Shearsmiths of  Halfmoon Bay generously gave  me three cuttings. I tore home  and plopped them into some  delicious rich soil with a  manure base and the heavens  immediately opened the  floodgates. My two are perky  as can be but I would like the  world to know that one  precious cutting has been  placed in the care of my  neighbours the Frewins. I  believe it's called hedging your  bets. If mine do better than  theirs I can gloat. If theirs do  better than mine I can popover  in the dead of night and pinch  them out.  Actually I suspect they are  better gardeners than 1 and I  have been eating their  vegetables for a month now. I  stand by their fence looking  pallid and they give me a week's  worth ofvegetablestomakeme  go home. Thank you Art and  Jean and thank you Shear-  smiths.  Strikes and spares  Our Youth Bowling Council  (Y.B.C.) Leagues for bowlers  age 6 to 17 years started last  week. We have Master  Instructors who help with the  teaching of bowling, are  secretaries for the leagues and  in general help run things.  Without people such as Sue  Whiting, Lynda Olsen and  Dianne Fitchell who have  taken the Master Instructors  Course and give freely of their  time and people such as  Melody Kirsch, June Frandsen, Lisa Kineaid, Paddy  Richardson, Carol Tetzlaff and  anybody I've missed who look  after the score keeping duties,  trying to keep these leagues  organized would be almost  impossible. We appreciate thc  help very much and thank  everybody who is involved in  any way.  We try to keep an easy, low  pressure approach to the kids  bowling and let them find their  own style, within limits, as we  find that a youngster can have  all kinds of problems one year  but if they stick it out and keep  trying, that all of a sudden it  clicks and they bowl like pros.  The Juniors started two  weeks ago and Michele  Whiting, who has always been  a pretty fair bowler, started the  season off with a 297 single and  a 678 triple. Michele has been  bowling for six or seven years  and is a good prospect for a 250  average in a few years if her  interest stays. 250 and over  averages are not uncommon  these days and a lot of these  bowlers have come up through  the ranks of the Y.B.C. system.  However you don't have to  have a 250 average to enjoy  bowling. You bowl to your own  capabilities and the bottom line  in any sport is to enjoy doing it.  The challenge in bowling is  yourself!  In the Classic League last  year, Freeman Reynolds rolled  a 401 single in the last week of  the playoffs. This year, in the  first week of the season he put  together nine strikes in a row  for a 406 single. He totalled  1110 for the four games and has  a starting average of 277. Jeff  Mulcaster had a 314 single and  a 1024 total for a good start  also.

Soccer  The opening of the 1979-80  soccer season saw the  Elphinstone Wanderers  playing the Richmond Labatts  at Langdale field.  The game was a see-saw  battle until Robby Williams  opened the scoring for the local  team in the 21st minute. This  sparked the Wanderers into  taking the play to Richmond  until halftime.  After a few glorious  opportunities were missed by  the hustling Wanderers in the  second half, the local team  seemed to run out of steam.  During this late game lapse  Kim Holman took advantage  of a Wanderers' error to tie the  game in the 82nd minute for the  visitors. The game ended in a 1-  1 draw.  Fine efforts were turned in  by Dan P. Baker, FelixTierney  and Joey Sawer. The team  wishes to thank Gibsons  Building Supplies for their  generous donations of lime and  also to express appreciation for  some fine fan support.  t*****-k******m*ilimwiwii-itii-itwiii  P.O.

U.I.C. benefits for you  Ian after this column hits the  itreets.  Actually any idea I may have  of taking over lan's job are not  likely to be. Work commitments are taking me up to  Prince Rupert (this is the  Sunshine Coast and that is the  Rain Coast). Anyways since it  will be difficult for me to fly  back once a month for the  birder meetings, we are going  to have a new birding leader  and that will be Vince  Bracewell, a long time  Sunshine Coaster and someone  who, I may add, is very capable  of leading the Birder's Night. If  anyone wants to talk to Vince  about the meetings or anything  else relating to birds, they can  contact him at 886-7720.  By the way, the first Birder's  Night is Thursday, October 4  and the meetings will continue  on the first Thursday of each  month following. The meetings  start at 7:30 and are in the  "Music Room" at Chatelech  High School in Sechelt. The  guests for the first meeting will  be Al and Jude Grass. Al is the  Park ' Naturalist at Mt.  Seymour Provincial Park and  Jude is very involved with the  Federation of B.C. Naturalists.  Al has some excellent bird  (hawk and owl) slides and it  should be a good night.  Also I would like to say a  special thank you for all the  support that was given, to  myself last year by the Marsh  Society and its members.  Believe me, I hate to leave after  meeting so many good people  but I definitely plan on  returning sometime in the  future. Thank you again.  Dotterel,* Albatross and Gravol  What do the above have in  common you may ask. Well  they spell out a very exciting  time which was enjoyed last  weekend by Peter and Janette  Gordon, Tony Greenfield,  Kate Angermeyer, Mary  Whetstone and myself as we  headed down south to  Wesport, Washington for a  pelagic birding trip. Saturday  got off to a good start with the  Whitecap's victory on TV.,  hie, and then it was over to  Ocean Shores which is right on  the west coast of Washington.  There we met some top  birders from Washington and  before we knew it one of them  had spotted a Dotterel, which is  a plover type of bird and indeed  a very rare sighting. As a matter  of fact it was the third recorded  for North America, south of  Alaska, and the last one seen  south of Alaska was in 1933.  The bird usually winters in  Asia.  Saturday was very stormy  and although it had calmed  down by Sunday, there were  still huge swells when we left  Westport at 6:30 a.m. on  Sunday. And that is where the  gravol comes in. Still about  seven of the 40 people lost their  breakfast overboard. The good  birding started immediately  (gee, why is your face so green  Peter?).  With some of the highlights  for the day being black-footed  Albatross, pink-footed  Shearwater, Leach's Storm-  petrel, Red Phalarope, Long-  tailed Jaeger, Tufted Puffin  and South Polar Skua. Matty  other pelagic birds were seen  but I feel as if I am running out  of space. Also two blue sharks,  Doll's Porpoise, Ocean Sunfish  and a Leatherback Turtle were  seen.  So in closing I would like to  thank Ian for the space and  good luck to Vince and the  Marsh Society with Birder's  Night.

More Wildlife  by Manuane  Holidays At Last  While everyone in the office  is having a rest from Ian while  he is on holiday, the show must  go on and this week's column is  brought to you by one of us  who can take notes and make it  legible. Ian said before he left  that the Coast News wouldn't  be the same without him. He is  so right! It's been a whole week  now and the office is still clean  and orderly. Even his desk,  which could be normally  compared to the Amazonian  jungle at its best, looks like it's  being treated decently at last. It,  just isn't the same without him.  Bears  This has been the week for  bears. It's a very controversial  subject and I could muse on it  but it's not my department; (see  Musings on page 2 this week).  They've been spotted about  everywhere this year and I  don't think I have ever heard of  them getting as far down the  mountain as they have this  season.  I go* a call last week that one  was seen behind Ken's Lucky  Dollar store in Lower Gibsons  so 1 grabbed my camera and  decided to take a look. I half  expected the bear to be gone by  the time I arrived but it was still  there even though I couldn't see  him when his whereabouts  were being pointed out to me.  Then I did something very  foolish. I went to look for him  so I could get a picture. I found  him alright, he stood up  suddenly a few feet away from  me, went "Whoomph" loudly  and went up a tree much faster  than I could which is good  because I went the other way  much slower than he would  have.  When he got down, he made  a point of scratching HIS tree  for my benefit and I left it at  that. I watched for awhile from  a safe distance (if there is such a  thing) snapped a few shots and  went back to the office.  Later on, Jamie Stephens,  our local Conservation Officer  was brought down to shoot the  bear. By the look on his face  shooting bears is the last thing  he wants to do to them. If that  wasn't enough, he also had to  deal with the animosity of those  watching him do what had to  be done.  Night Hawk  I also got a call this week  from a nice family living on the  bluff. They had found a night  hawk with a broken leg and  felt, to their credit that the  option of putting him to sleep  without giving him a chance to  survive was unacceptable. I've  nursed a lot of birds and I took  him in with permission from  Jamie since it is an offence to  harbour a wild creature  without a permit.  Well, he's been with me five  days now and he's doing fine. I  left him alone for three days  after setting his leg. On the  fourth day he began eating  again and I've been chasing  anything remotely resembling  an insect in and out of my  house with a little net to keep  him happy. Needless to say, I  look very silly trying to get  what everybody is trying to get  rid of. He eats everything I give  him, in the evening which is his  natural meal time.  He's a nice little fellow. His  leg will never be the same again  but he's the kind of bird that  flys a lot and never perches,  preferring to rest on the ground  or sitting lengthwise on  branches. By the way, if you  have any bugs (freshly caught)  to donate, I would appreciate  it. This little guy eats a lot.  Waq��  We're all fed up with them by  now but according to Ron  Slack, humans are not the only  ones affected by these stinging  pests. Ron saw three crows  being pestered till they had to  relinquish a prospective meal at  the ferry terminal. I guess  wasps don't taste very good  since the crows made no  attempt to eat them.  I myself had a duel with a  wasp in the office. I was alone  and I don't know who got mad  first but eventually I was  cornered by this mad thing and  it was coming straight at me. I  had a rolled newspaper to  defend myself and I used it just  like I would a baseball bat. It  was a hit, it had to be one, and I  stepped on the stunned wasp  with a violence triggered only  by fear. If you  see anything of interest, call me  at the office. Ta is for these  funny haggis people so, merci.  Glbtont Public  Tuesday  2-4p.m.  Wednesday 2-4p.m.  Thursday 2-4 & 7-9pm.
