 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings        Q   a  Victoria, B.C V8V 1X4     I3��1  COAST^NEWS  50 cents per copy on newsstands  ESTABLISHED    1945  January 25,1993 Volume 47 Issue 4  Bayside union  takes strike vote  by Jane Seyd  Over IOO workers at Bayside  Sawmills in Hillside Industrial  Park were to have taken part in  a strike vote this Saturday, after  union spokesman Murray Cantelon said bargaining negotiations with the company broke  down Jan. 18.  Cantelon, business agent for  the local IWA, cited wages as  the main roadblock between the  union and the company. Workers currently earning a base rate  of $13.23 per hour have been  offered an increase to $ 14 by  Bayside. But Cantelon said a  usual rate for sawmill workers is  an hourly wage of $17.  Other issues under dispute  include a pension plan for workers, entrenchment of training  and apprenticeship programs,  and the current grievance process for employees.  Cantelon added there have  been communication problems  between management and  employees: "The company  doesn't seem to care about talking to its people ... The type of  management down there is  extremely paternal."  The union's last collective  Chamber  bows out  of sea  festival  by Charles Hart  A ripple of concern  spread through town hall  last week following the Gibsons and District Chamber of  Commerce's announcement  that il no longer wishes to be  responsible for co-ordinating  the town's major annual festival - the Sea Cavalcade.  New chamber presidenl  Lionel Trudel said last year's  Cavalcade effort was a  financial and management  fiasco, with "a level of dedication that was embarrassing.  "We feel it's too important and loo big to lose and  we're proposing to strike an  individual society to manage  lhe Sea Cavalcade" rather  than a subcommittee of  chamber, Trudel said.  "It's the biggest thing lhat  Gibsons does and it needs  commitment. That commitment was lacking last year,  he said, "the chamber would  also be more freed up to  carry oul ils mandate - and  that's support business."  Along with society status  would come total responsibility for festival fundraising, independent of the  chamber.  Gibsons council, which  provides a grant to the chamber, including a small sum  for the Sea Cavalcade, has  requested a meeting with the  chamber executive to discuss  the situation. "I think it's  really important that we do  have a Sea Cavalcade," said  Mayor Eric Small.  The town, however, is not  eager lo step in and take  over, he added. "If the chamber has made an irrevocable  decision to drop it, somebody else will have to pick  up the ball."  The Sea Cavalcade, an  annual maritime festival  held each July for the past  24 years, is traditionally the  town's biggest tourist draw  of the year. "Let's not do  anything to jeopardize it,"  said Small. "Even now it's  reasonably short notice. January is when you really start  putting the plans in place."  agreement with the company  expired Oct. 31.  Cantelon said Thursday a  strike vote does not necessarily  mean workers will walk off the  job: "It's a significant employer  and it's a bad point in the year  to hit the bricks," he said.  "We'll be exploring our options  after (the vote is taken)."  Meanwhile, a manager for  Bayside expressed surprise at  the union's statement that negotiations had fallen down. "The  company is not aware that talks  have broken off," said Jeff  Salmon. "We feel it's unfortunate that the union has gone to  the press."  Salmon agreed wages are a  major issue in the talks, but said  as a specialty products mill,  with 30 per cent more employees than usual, Bayside can't  afford a higher pay rate. "It's  not a high production mill. That  makes costs higher than for  other coastal sawmills," said  Salmon.  He added the rising cost of  logs has had a serious effect on  the company and that financial  statements were presented to the  union prior to negotiations.  Jeff Salmon, a manager for Bayside Sawmills Ltd., is surprised by recent moves taken by the union in labour negotiations.  Joel Johnstone photo  Indian band, Air Rainbow meet to ink Tyee deal  by Jane Seyd  A meeting between the Sechelt Indian  Band and Air Rainbow of Nanaimo on  Friday was to have resolved final restructuring of Tyee Air under management of  the Nanaimo aviation company.  The fate of Tyee, started by local pilot  and businessman Al Campbell and owned  mostly by the band for several years, has  been uncertain since the band council  announced a major shake-up in December  and laid off most employees.  Under an agreement expected to be  made final on Friday, the band will retain  its 75 per cent of shares in Tyee but the  business will be managed by Air Rainbow, which Chief Tom Paul said earlier  could help pull the operation out of a  financial slump.  Tyee founder and former manager Al  Campbell said Thursday he had not been  invited to take part in the business negotiations and did not know what was being  planned.  But   Charlie   Russel.        operations manager for,".r  Rainbow in Nanaimo. said  Thursday as far as he knew  Campbell would no longer  be part of managing the  company.  Russel said last year  Tyee had run into financial       trouble and had been operating on some runs at a significant loss.  He said schedule changes could probably be expected in the future, although  lhat wouldn't necessarily mean heavy  cuts: "Some things might have to be  tightened up."  He also said that whether former Tyee  employees are called back to work would  depend on business: "January is a very  ______   slow month and 1992 was  a very slow year."  Last year, business for  all coastal airlines was  down, said Russel,  because of downturns in  both resource industries  'January is a very  slow month and  1992 was a very  slow year'  - Charlie Russel and Tri!m wl,.ch usua"5'  supply travelling customers.  Prior to reorganization, Tyee Air -  which ran charter flights as well as scheduled runs to Vancouver and Nanaimo -  had operated on the Coast for 33 years.  All flights are still operating out of  Sechelt under the new company.  Meanwhile, a similar shake-up by the  band with resulting lay-offs is still in  effect at the Raven's Cry Theatre, which  has remained closed since Dec. 31.  The Sechelt band has said it no longer  wants to subsidize all theatre operations,  which had a history of financial trouble  last year, bul will instead put a board of  directors in place with the knowledge to  go after both corporate and government  funding.  A board of directors with community  representation should be in place by the  end of the month, said Paul.  He said the theatre will still be made  available during the closure to groups  with previous bookings.  ^L'T**^BBB^Wi  Sechelt chamber  tackles tourism, OCP  The Lund hotel is steeped in history.  ���#���*.**  Jane Seyd pholo  Lund's fading past lingers on  Pan one of two  by Jane Seyd  At tbe end of the highway, past houses with  overgrown fruit trees, wheelbarrows propped up  outside and a glimpse of an old bus painted and  parked in someone's yard, Lund, about 30 kilometres north of Powell River, is not so much a place  as a slate of mind.  Viewed from tlte road above the old hotel,  Lund is a lot like other places on the Coast with a  pasl that's long been fading, only more so: there's  still a shack built on pilings at the end of the old  boardwalk, a fishboat among the sailboats tied up  at the dock, the remains of a fish processing plant  now closed, signs for boat rentals, charter and  salvage. A hotel looking out towards the strait and  Savary Island is wom out with an air of lapsed  gentility.  As the first liquor licence granted north of Vancouver - or San Francisco, depending on who's  telling the story - the Lund hotel is a place with a  Past, from dance hall era of honeysuckle and  climbing roses to any weekend bar fight.  Often as not, the people who've showed up  here or stayed over the years have also come trail  ing a past behind them, from those who cul a path  through Lund's early history, building a town from  the bush, a dock and an engine repair shop, to  those who came later, running from the draft,  broken marriages or the rest of the world to a place  nobody would find diem.  For most people who end up in Lund, "they  want someplace to be on their own," says Keith  Matheson, who first discovered it in the 1970s,  and now has a carving studio and coffee shop on  the end of the boardwalk.  "It's lhe end of the road. I think they're running  away from something and they can't go any farther. Nobody passes through Lund. This is it."  There's a certain kind of attitude in Lund, says  Matheson: "They don't feel guilty for doing nothing."  "If you don't work a regular job, you don't.  There's no expectation. You're not pretending to  be anything... Everyone survives, doing what they  have to."  "There are people with one or two degrees  behind their name and you'd never know it," says  Matheson. "They've chosen a different lifestyle."  turn to page 3  by Darah Hansen  With news the Sunshine  Coast is officially ranked the  third fastest growing area in  Canada, members of Sechelt's  Chamber of Commerce welcomed the new year with high  hopes for the future of local  business.  Speaking at Thursday night's  annual general meeting, outgoing president Jack Greenwood fueled those hopes with  the announcement that more  than 1,000 new business  inquiries had been made  through the chamber last year,  and S.S per cent at the local  tourist bureau were made about  Sechell.  Greenwood added he hoped  1993 would be more profitable  to the chamber which, over the  last two years, has accumulated  a combined net deficit of  $4,331.52.  But newly elected president  Patrick Hobbs expressed no  worries over the financial picture.  "I'm really pumped up and  encouraged," he said, "I'm  looking forward to a strong  1993."  With the decline of logging  and fishing, Hobbs said tourism  is the future for the Coast.  Tourism consultant Gordon  Wilson agreed. Leaking just a  few facts from a detailed report  to be released in full on Feb. 18,  Wilson said, "the potential here  is unbelievable... but it's  untapped."  Wilson's report surveyed  tourists, asking a series of questions ranging from why they  came to the Coast to what  improvements they would like  to see.  "A lol of people come looking for real estate," said Wilson,  adding the primary complaint  was lhe general lack of amenities in the area.  Later in the evening municipal planner Rob Buchan spoke  on the topic of the Sechelt Official Community Plan (OCP).  Buchan encouraged chamber  members to become involved in  whal he termed "The most  importanl document that your  community and your council  will enact."  In reference to the current  OCP, Buchan said, "It is very  much in need of review and by  review I mean a major rewrite."  He condemned lhe 1987  OCP for having no real provision for ihe establishment of  park facilities and for its exclusion of the Sechelt Indian Band.  "1 can not condone another  plan coming out with that idea,"  he said.  inside  coaminttf page 8  leisure      page 11  musings    page 4  nutter      pagei  ONI         page 18  rmtrwhen page 17 Coast News, January 25, 1993  ALASKi  IUISES  m  HOLLAND AMERICA LINE  Save up to $1,000per couple  liarly booking discount now extended to Teh. 5  Call soon - space is going fast!

Secretary Lionel Trudel was  elected the chamber's new  president in a membership ballot last week, out-polling vice-  president Conchita Harding,  after former president Sharron  Burk resigned citing personal  and business pressures. Burk,  elected at the chamber's agm in  November, will continue to  serve on the executive as a  director.  Trudel's election marks a  shift in priorities. A Gibsons  photographer and graphic  designer, the 26-year-old is keen  to heighten the chamber's profile in the community and off  the Coast, and to take a more  public stand on political issues  of local and national interest.  "I haven't done anything like  this before and I'm interested in  seeing some changes," Trudel  told the Coast News. "I want to  get away from the Lions Club  fundraising priorities and promote business on a more political level."  Promotion will be a double-  edged task, he said, bringing a  Marsh  Society  seeking  grant  With all the changes happening on the Sunshine Coast these  days, it's nice lo know there are  still those looking out for the little guys.  As part of provincial environment week, The Sechelt Marsh  Protective Society has plans to  apply for a grant that would  make them eligible to receive up  to $2,300 in aid of a project that  would see two new ponds devel-  Glbsons and District Chamber of Commerce executive directors  elected secretary Lionel Trudel as president following Sharron  Burk's resignation.  higher profile to businesses that  are already located on the Coast  and aiming to attract new businesses to the area. "There's a  high level of skills and education here relative to the number  of unemployed," said Trudel.  "It's something Ihe chamber  could get involved with."  Rather  than   relying  on  Joel Johnstone photo  fundraising, the chamber plans  to mount educational seminars  on business topics as a way of  raising money for projects. "We  really want to become a knowledge network for business and  really that will be our new cash  base,' explained Trudel, who  plans lo dedicate one day a  week to chamber commitments.  Another idea Trudel outlined  would see the chamber co-ordinate a homes trade show to try  to attract new home buyers lo  the Coast. "Real estate is usually a very good boon to, I guess,  improving the level of services  on the Coast... These are things  that I feel are more in line with  the mandate of a chamber of  commerce."  On Ihe political front, Trudel  was critical of the chamber's  unwillingness to be more outspoken, citing October's constitutional referendum as an example. The provincial chamber of  commerce supported a Yes vote,  Trudel noted. "Gibsons had a  heated debate and said it's a  personal choice but by no means  was that representative of what  businesses wanted," he said. "I  would've contacted all members, sought their response and  published the figures."  On a local level, Trudel said  the chamber needs to be more  outspoken on planning and zoning issues, and not just with  government. "Writing a form  letter to all four levels of government is too easy. We need to  be more in Ihe public eye ... If  business just sits back on it's  heels it's going to turn us into a  Surrey where everyone sits back  and drinks beer."  oped on the Sechelt marsh site,  Lot 48, as well as a crush gravel  foot path. Marsh Society president Tony Greenfield called it a  "landscaping project, with the  idea of creating a better habitat  for wildlife."  treasurer    Bill  Wishlow said they've further  plans to make the present path  around the marsh wheelchair  accessible.  Wishlow said Sechelt council  has been supportive of the  marsh habitat for years, giving  grant money to maintain it.  "They really keep us going," he  said.  The Sechelt marsh is presently home to a variety of waterfowl and small birds, said  Wishlow, adding lasl year birders were treated to the sight of a  hooded merganser.  Maritime museum proposed for lower Gibsons  by Charles Hart  Interested in the maritime  history of the Coast? Like the  idea of a waterfront museum in  lower Gibsons to present a variety of historical artifacts, displays and programs to preserve  and promote awareness of the  Coast's maritime heritage?  886-4.2 ��4'1  FOR  ONE  FOR  ONE  (Read these numbers out loud slowly)  PIZZA  OMEGA'S NEW DEAL  That's what the the Sunshine  Coast Maritime Historical Society is planning: the society has  asked the Town of Gibsons to  help out by making public land  available for a small, but active  museum.  The society details its ideas  and ambitions in a letter to the  town, which council referred to  ���m its planning committee Tuesday  for future discussion. Ideas proposed include permanent displays of native history, the story  of the fishing industry, maritime  transportation and seamanship.  "Ideally located on the waterfront, the museum could eventually have a small heritage wharf  to display boats being worked  on," says society president John  DeKleer in the letter.

Other ideas include film and  video nights, speakers, instruction in seamanship, a marine  library and regular invitations  for unique vessels to visit Gibsons, all in an effort to boost  tourism.  Mayor Eric Small speculated  that interest arose because of a  recent meeting between Holland  Park users and potential users,  including the maritime historical  society, at which use of public  land was discussed. "Maybe  they feel it's timely," he said of  the maritime society's request.  He said the town is looking  to put together a long-term plan  for the two-acre, undeveloped  Gibsons Landing Park on the  waterfront. The Gibsons Rotary  Club has expressed interest in  developing the Landing Park,  after constructing a volleyball  court ihere last summer. Rotarians have asked to meet with  council about the properly,  Small said.  "It's a bit of an eyesore, quite  honestly, and it's a very important piece of property on the  waterfront. But it's going to take  a lot of money to develop it and  I don't think we're of a mind to  in this economic climate."  Meanwhile, Small was noncommittal about the maritime  society's request. "I think we  need quite a bil more information than they put in the letter."  "J   ������ff  Grown furnishings  VANCOUVER HEAD OFFICE  Ph: 604-322-5768 ��� Fax: 604-322-5763 Coast News, January 25, 1993  news  Voting changes opposed  by Jane Seyd  Local government officials  have sent a message to Victoria  objecting to proposed changes  which would see recreational  property owners disqualified  from voting in municipal and  regional district elections.  Last week, regional directors, along with Gibsons mayor  Eric Small, sent letters to the  Ministry of Municipal Affairs  opposing the planned changes  as taking away rights of owners  who should have a say in local  government.  The changes are being proposed by Ihe province as a  move which it says will make  local government more responsive to concerns of the people  actually living in an area, rather  than those who own property.  According to the ministry, local  governments now deal with  community issues of much  wider concern than simply disposition of property, so the  changes are appropriate.  But regional directors said  they don't buy that argument.  "What is being suggested is  the disenfranchisement of a significant number of voters," said  director Jim Gurney.  He added that while "it may  be expedient for those of us  who are residents to disallow  those of us who are not residents because they may vote  differently than we do," a dangerous precedent could be set  thai way.

An exception to those views  has been taken publicly by only  Gibsons councillor John  McNevin.  "I don't think because you  have property you have the  divine right to vote," said  McNevin, when the issue first  came up. "We live in this community all year round...they  come in on our conditions."  McNevin said at one point in  lhe past, a recreation complex  for the Sunshine Coast was  voted down largely by recreational property owners from  other places who didn't want to  see their taxes go up. In the  communities where these owners lived most of the year, "they  had nice recreation complexes,"  said McNevin. "...but we didn't  get one."  Also at issue is a change proposed by the ministry to disallow businesses from voting.  That has been supported personally by both Sechelt mayor  Nancy MacLarty and McNevin.  Police role  coming up  for review  A policing commission sel  up by the province to look into  issues such as use of force,  police complaints, and the role  of policing in Native indian  communities, will soon be  holding public hearings in rural  areas of B.C.  Gender and multicultural  issues, the role of police boards,  use of search warrants and  police versus non-police services are also under discussion.  The commission, headed by  Mr. Justice Wallace Oppal, is  the first to examine the role of  police in the province in over  20 years. So far, the hearings  held in urban areas with municipal police forces, such as Vancouver, have dealt with topics  ranging from neighbourhood  policing to neck holds.  Between February and April,  the commission will travel to  25 rural communities. A schedule is being prepared.  Sechelt Staff Sgt. Cam Reid  said more police presence is  likely to be an issue in rural  areas. But he added he would  also like to see greater community involvement in crime prevention "rather than expecting  the police to attend to all policing and social needs."  Oral or written submissions  will be received by the commission until May. Discussion  papers are expected in summer.  Lund draws characters 'larger than life9  from page 1  Depending on who's speaking, there are different versions  of Lund, but "very few people  come to Lund and are nondescript, blend into the scenery,"  he says. "They're all larger than  life."  Invariably, (hey end up at the  old,hotel. "I|Ya,|)sconvince/l)^)r ���  years it, was the centre of thi;,.   ...  universe," says Matheson.!',\\,..,  was convinced there was some  sort of vortex under that hotel  that was sending them off in the  right direction."  There are stories you could  hear about the Lund hotel if you  hung around the bar long  enough looking oul over the  Strait and the slow wake of  boats coming in to the dock.  Built in 1911 on pilings over  the harbour, the old structure  still stands, though the land  around has since been filled in.  The town post office is runout  of the lobby and anyone asking  for a room with a phone - as one  woman once did - is still likely  to be laughed at.  Dave Stevens, the new owner  of the hotel, is one of the recent  escapees to Lund from the United States, arriving after a personal tragedy struck. Eventually  he wanted to leave the city.  "A lot of the locals have  stayed here at various times  through their life," and lhe  stories of barroom brawls go,  "Oh, from the 1940s lo last  night," says Stevens.  On Ihe third floor of the  hotel, sealed off for years until  recently, lhe ghost of Mrs.  Thulin, wife of the original  owner, is said lo walk among  the rooms with sloping ceilings  and water marks dripping  through faded wallpaper.  "The old story is nobody  Keith Matheson  other than a Thulin will successfully operate the hotel," says  Stevens.  Objects move around unexplained. Lights turn on and off  in padlocked rooms. Once, up  on the third floor to flip a breaker, "I came around the comer  and had the strongest feeling I  was being watched," said  Stevens.  Down in the basement,  among some of the old log pilings, he flashes a lighter into a  dark-walled storage room:  "They say this was the Lund  drunk tank."  In the curio shop, where a  needlepoint Mona Lisa stares  oul above old china, Joan - a  fixture at the hotel for over 60  years, who's also related by  marriage to the original Thulins  - elaborates: "There was a bunch  of drunks here. I'm not going to  lie about that. That's what kept  the place hopping," she says.  "They called it the snake room."  Back in the old days, the  hotel was a different kind of  place, says Joan, with the Union  steamships stopping twice a  week and fishermen and loggers  down from Desolation Sound:  "My uncle would support them  all winter, then they'd pay him  'P^Spri^" .������.,,...;  In its heyday, with people  cqntjng up from Powell River  and over from Savary Island:  "You couldn't even get a reservation for a dance unless you  made it months in advance."  There was an apple orchard  where a parking lot sits now,  two dining rooms and a kitchen  where she once baked pies to go  over lo Savary in boxes.  In the old days, "They  weren't recipe cooks," says  Joan. "That made all the difference."  And in the old store, "You  could get anything in it from a  sewing needle down to a boom  chain."  In the Lund general store  attached to the hotel today,  there's linseed oil, paint thinner,  a sink faucet, shovels, axes,  eyebolts and antifreeze along  with cat food, coffee and carrots.     ��� ��� ' ���  A fhan sits on (he flb% ilirtlie  nail aisle, working on his chain  saw.

His  inauguration marks a generational shift in the history of  the world's last superpower.  Speculation about what that means will continue, we  can be sure, until the actions of the new administration  furnish us with something of more substance to chew on.  For both the incoming and the outgoing presidents,  Inauguration Day last Wednesday could not have come  too soon.  For outgoing President George Bush, the 60-day period between his defeat and his relinquishing of office  must have been particularly painful. Bush did not expect  to lose. His love of his country is unquestionable and he  thought he had so served that it was fully reciprocated.  But as Winston Churchill found out in 1945, leaders in  war are not automatically regarded as leaders for peace.  Unlike Churchill, Bush at 68 years of age is not going to  be given the opportunity to regain his country's top spot.  His controlled pain was manifest when he stood in the  dais and watched the new man being sworn in.  Now George and Barbara have flown off to Texas to  become 'private citizens and good neighbours' and left  the leadership of the western world in the hands of a man  a generation younger and totally different in experience  and background.  For the new president likewise, Inauguration Day  could not have come to soon. The expectations raised by  a superb campaign were very high and the days between  election and office seemed to be becoming increasingly  difficult for the President Elect.  Elected but not in office in turbulent times, he was  compelled to approve every action of his predecessor  though the rest of the world, other than Canada, Britain  and France, seemed to find the spate of attacks on Iraq  with which George Bush signed off his presidency to be  both excessive and ill-advised.  Camped in Little Rock for weeks with little news to  report, the media began to become surly and critical of  the new president before he got control of his responsibilities. The transition period began well but in the week  before Inauguration the tight control was beginning to  slip and errors were being made.  The responsibilities Clinton faces are daunting indeed.  TfiTible poverty lives in the heart of American cities and  mity Americans feel removed from the mainstream of  American life and opportunity  The Republican years have seen the growth of enormous debt and Clinton seems keenly aware that if America does not begin to put its house in order its pre-eminence in the world will be in jeopardy.  In that world beyond its borders, the challenges to  future peace and well being are many and various,  despite the collapse of what Ronald Reagan liked to call  'the evil empire' of the Soviet Union.  Within and without his country, President Clinton has  nothing but problems and we must wish him well in the  world's toughest job. He starts it with one remarkable  accomplishment. The man from Hope Arkansas has  brought hope back into the lives of millions of the poor  and dispossessed in his country. Even, perhaps, into the  lives of cynical political observers and politicians.  For that achievement alone we should already be  grateful.  letters  Business fee  hikes excessive  As a local small business I  have been faced with a 10 percent increase in business licence  fees in both Sechelt and Gibsons. Trying to survive in business on the Coast is difficult  enough without having overhead costs going up 200 per  cent in one year just to cover  business licence fees in both  these areas.  On questioning both districts  as to the reason for the substantial increase in their licence  fees, they both advised thai they  have not had an increase in Ave  years and due to increased costs  it is necessary to pass these  costs on to the consumer. This  tells me that there is obviously  something wrong with our local  governments. Why, if it is nee-vy  essary lo pass these costs on.'f '  hadn't ihey been Increasing the "*'  fees by a small percentage every  year instead of a large amount  such as 100 percent in one year.  I am sure we all wish we could  increase our prices by 100 percent in one year, but we live in  the real world and know if we  did this we would not be in  business very long.  In previous years local contractors have been trying lo  compete with people coming to  Ihe Coast and bidding and working on construction sites at cut  rate prices without a business  licence or being covered by  Workmen's Compensation.  These people take on a job and  then disappear back to the mainland leaving all sorts of prob  lems and in general a bad name  for the industry and honest local  businesses. I believe that with  the new cost of a business  licence we are going to be faced  with more of this type of problem in 1993.  I only hope that with all this  extra revenue the districts have  now collected in business  licence fees, they will put it to  good use and have the bylaw  officers out there checking up  on people and contractors mak-  ing sure they have business  licences and if not, issuing fines.  Local business is Ihe base of  every community, so let's not  eliminate them due to excessive  taxation.  JIM BAIN  Sechelt  Abolish  regional board  Why don't we get rid ot the  regional board? They are  against the environment for they  sank the Chaudiere. Now they  have voted to uglify Lillie's or  Paq Lake with a big clump of  houses on an insufficient piece  of land.  A single family having a  house on a small piece of land is  ordered to remove the house.  Many houses on a small piece  of land is better, it seems. Zoning change here was to be for  old people with little income.  Now it has been changed to 55  years and up. Fifty-five years is  Ihe prime of life and these people have to have money to move  in, quite different from the original request, yet alright because  it is a commercial venture and  will bring in taxes.  Why is no thought given to  people's health?  The regional board granted  Woodcreek Park the right lo  have liny lots, next thing, the  sewage was up in people's  yards. Complaints went in and  some small changes were made  to the disposal system. The  sewage came up in a different  place. Is this healthy?  Knowing that these small lots  were a mistake, why does the  regional board wanl to repeal  the mistake? I suppose they  letters welcome  We welcome letters to the editor on matters of public  interest. However, we reserve the right to edit  submissions for brevity, clarity and legality. Please mail  your letters to:  The Editor  Sunshine Coast News  Box 68  Sechelt, B.C.  V0N3A0  think they are keeping it secret.  Why do we have a regional  board? I used to think that it was  to keep things reasonable. Not  so! They legislate size of houses  but say they cannot protect  drinking water.  We pay the salaries of the  regional board and they even  raise their own salaries. Why  don't we ask the government to  take away Ihe regional board?  Conditions could scarcely get  worse because the board always  supports the developer. Without  the board, we could have a nice  reduction in taxes, maybe  enough to buy bottled water.  VIOLET TYNER  Madeira Park  Transition gifts  appreciated  We'd like your readei. L o  know about some of the community support for our servla-  Last year, Ihe Elves Club  along wilh collections at local  liquor outlets, made possible the  contribution of a large number  of leddy bears lo Transition  House. Ihis made it possible for  nearly all of the children al Ihe  house during 1992 (approximately 90) to take with them a  special friend when they left  with their mothers.  Again this year, a number of  bears have been donated from  liquor store collections, and the  other toys from the F.Ives Club  will help make the visit of children wilh Iheir mothers at Transition House a happier one.  Thanks for these special gifts.  RICKI MOSS  What the world needs is a more subtle superpower  Last time in the Coast News we took a look at  history and symbolism and the role not played by  the former and the unconscious role played all too  often by die latter in foreign affairs, both generally  and specifically in the case of the world's last  super power - the Uniled Slates of America.  We noted that there was a tendency, probably  subconscious, in American policy makers to link  themselves with all the tough virtuous heroes of  the American Wild West, shaping both their self  image and their actions.  We also pointed out that in western after western, not only was the history distorted, but that the  victims of that history were slaughtered to cheers  from movie audiences all through the hey day of  the western movie. Noting that flyers in the Vietnamese war flew off in their bombing jets with  Colt 45's strapped to their hips and that the only  indicators of progress daily in that long and tortured, brutal travesty was die daily body count of  the slain.  The 'gooks' as the American soldiers called the  Vietnamese were dehumanized in exactly tbe same  way as were the Indians in the movies where you  could cheer their deaths while you munched your  popcorn and think it normal.  There is a danger in allowing this racism, for of  course that is what il is, to colour one's judgement  in a world which grows increasingly non-white  musings  John burnside  with the passing of the years. And yet, unencumbered with much of a sense of history and eager  always to find symbols of evil against which they  can reassure themselves about their virtue, recent  American leaders seem in danger of doing just  that  Of course, they are not doing it consciously but  implicit in dealings with people of different background to one's own must be the expectation that  one will try to understand the events of the day  from the point of view of the other party.  The Americans are conscientiously trying to till  their leadership of the world role in three distinct  areas as this is being written.  In Somalia in the horn of Africa they have sent  in their soldiers to make the ravaged country safe  for the delivery of humanitarian aid. They have  exchanged fire and suffered casualties and are  seizing weapons and trying to disarm the country.  A couple of years ago as the lynch pin of a  coalition, they launched the much vaunted Desert  Storm, raining down death and destruction on the  army of Saddam Hussein.  More recently, again al the urging of former  President George Bush, the Americans have spearheaded further assaults on the troublesome Hussein  with no end yet in sight.  There is another grievous trouble spot in the  world. The former Yugoslavia, after the break-up  of the Soviet Union, has reverted to the same  strife-torn, hate-ridden Balkans which were the  seed bed of the First World War.  Here, the Americans and the Europeans have  been much less resolute. The most terrible crimes  have been committed and terrible suffering has  become routine and yet the triumphant leaders of  the free world have been strangely ineffective.  Indeed, there is some indication that ineffectiveness has been caused by the fact that there is still  some division within Europe about former allies:  the Germans favouring the Croats with the British  and French holding vestigial loyalties to the Serbs.  But to Africans and Arabs it must look like the  leaders of the free world are less eager to employ  their awesome arsenals against Europeans, compared to blacks in Africa or Arabs in the Middle  East  There is a terrible danger here. Saddam Hussein  who is almost certainly wilier than he is given  credit for, is hoping lo achieve the enormous  power he seeks by linking his efforts with a Jihad,  an Islamic holy war.  Fundamentalists of all persuasions are seeking  power and in the view of Ihe Arab fundamentalists,  and professedly by Hussein, another Holy Crusade  pitting the followers of Islam againsl the infidels is  already underway.  Of course, the struggle is for power and domination. It always is. But the forces of religious fundamentalism are growing and Machiavels like  Hussein will be quick to try lo exploit it for their  own ends.  Meanwhile a new generation has come to power  in the world's last superpower.  It may prove to be a generation with a more  subtle awareness of history and a more refined  sense of national symbolism than the generations  who have held sway through most of the 20th Century.  Thus armed against ignorance the Americans  may yet save the day. There are reasonable people  everywhere who fear excess and dread the violence  that unalloyed zeal in a world of cardboard villains  can bring.  A more subtle super power could make all the  difference in our perilous future.  lAST^NEWS  Sumcrlptkm Helm he  the Cant Man or Ore iranaViaanW.'  mad.: 1 yaw ��� $33 * $2.45 CST ��� $37.45  6 months ��� $20* $1.40 CST-$21.40  ,    Foimin.- 1 yarn ��� $40 (No CST)  Reg.

It lists just  I about every known kind of bean  I and gets quite rhapsodic about  l them.  I can't remember any other  i song that does this, for the bean  or the Brussel sprout or whatever. There is, of course, The Song  of Ihe Prune (other people worry  but the prunes don't sit and  brood, for no matter how young  a prune may be he's always gelling stewed), but this is clearly  in a different class and may be  talking about getting stewed  ralher than about prunes, per se.  But, you will be asking, why  arc we going on aboul these old  bits of songs aboul beans and  prunes to begin with?  It all stems from the circumstance that I have been living for  the past couple of months in a  small camper, or trailer, parked  on a building site, while the  house where I usually live is in  temporary upheaval (it has been  raised 10 feet in the air so that  another one can be built under  il).  The factor in this which leads  to some questioning of paeans  of praise for beans (particularly)  is that this trailer or camper has  no usable refrigerator or usable  oven. You catch my drift. You  can't cook up anything of any  size at all and have it around to  in a nutshell  peck on over the next 10 days or  whatever. You are wholly limited to cooking stuff on two burners, stuff that you can eat at one  sitting.  Well I know about James  Barber's lively little books  about how you can cook just  about anything on a skillet and it  sure sounds okay. But I've  noticed that he is forever reaching into his fridge for this or that  ingredient.  That, or he is strolling down  to some nearby market to do the  day's shopping, carefully selecting the day's artichokes and so  forth. With me, sorry to say, this  situation leads too often, far too  often, to beans.  Nothing therefore really  against beans, it's just that  unless you are a sturdy prospector or whatever, there can be too  many of them. And then there  are the increasing times when  you cook up something other  and it invariably turns out to be  more than you need and you  have to throw it away with distressing thoughts of the Somalis.  What is perhaps more interesting is that you begin to have  letters  stuart nutter  visions, visions of other food.  You don't sit there dreaming  these up (a merely wistful business), they just suddenly occur.  You will be reading a book or  writing a letter and there suddenly, clear as day, will be a  large platter of oysters Rockefeller.  Mine are not usually of anything fancy. What I seem to be  haunted by is steak and kidney  pie (Comish style). Some of my  visions of steak and kidney pie  (Comish style) have likely been  as vivid as Parsifal's of the Holy  Grail.  I don't think I am a glutton  particularly, in fact I am usually  being told that I should eat more  (Nutter do you want to see the  21st Century?), but there you  go. Others have had this kind of  obsessive thing going on.  Some years back Eric Link-  later wrote a book called Poet's  Pub. In it the poet has acquired  an Elizabethan pub in the  English countryside. Instead of  the ghosts of people with their  head tucked under their arm,  this fellow begins to have  visions of Elizabethan food. He  Poverty coverage  clarified  I want to thank the Coast  News and Roxanne Gregory for  the excellent coverage of the  anti-poverty group meeting that  was held in Ihe Unemployment  Action Centre office Jan. 9.  However, I must make one  correction. Donna Thomas is  the coordinator of the Une*n.  pic. it Action Centre and has  been \>f the past several year's.  Thougn I ended up chairing this  particular meeting, I am merely  a long-term volunteer.  ANNE MILES  Gibsons  Health grant  story erred  Re. article in the Jan. 4 Coast  News, "Improved quality of life  goal of health grants," many  errors are to be found in Ihis  article.  Firstly, names are misspelled: Dr. Martiquet's name  has been primed as Martique  and as Martinez. Lamarchand  should read Lemarchand. She is  not a resident of Sechelt, but of  Roberts Creek.  Secondly, concerning the  application filed on behalf of a  group of Chatelech students:  ��� this project does not  address the youlh loitering problem, per sc, and does not pretend to "solve" it;  ��� Ihis project does not  "involve using Chatelech Secondary as a base of operations  for after hours youth activities;"  ��� there 'has never been any  intention of creating a "far-  reaching" proposal. Just common sense material.  The primary t^oal, of this prr>  jeet is simply to enable a group  of Grade 12 students to articulate their perception of what  should be done to downtown  Sechelt to satisfy their needs  and wants along the lines of the  healthy community process.  Some of their needs were  expressed during the Public  Forum on Youth which Chatelech students organized last  November.  They asked, then, for help.  Chatelech vice-principal  Kerry Mahlman, and the Comparative Civilization class  teacher, Sally Thicke, are cooperating enthusiastically in  allowing this project to piggyback on a normal class curriculum, and the students are making a very special effort to juggle this project along with their  usual load, in a period of  provincial exams.  Those 12 students are taking  a risk on uncharted territory and  they must be commended and  supported in their endeavour.  Their views will be made  public at the workshop organized for Feb. 13, Sunshine  Coast Community Health Day.  A $1,500 community-based  grant has been allocated to that  project.

What do you, what do  I, know of Ihis crime, of Ihe perpetrator, of his victim?  A time to find out came at  last summer's Festival of the  Written Arts when Trysh Ashby-  Rolls, a new arrival lo the Sunshine Coast read her 1991 book  Triumph, A Journey of 11 all in ft  from Incest.  Ashby-Rolls is a survivor of  incest. She has come a long journey in overcoming her once lack  of self-esteem and feelings of  guilt to a life "cleaner, clearer,  saner," a life free of addictions  and compulsions.

Nearly all of the reports of  disclosure of incest have been  published in little more than the  decade just passed. All deal with  their own healing, written to  encourage other secrel sufferers  to come forward to bring their  abusers to task and lo give direction to their healing.  Noi all who come forward are  as eloquent as Ashby-Rolls.  In her foreword lo Ashby-  Rolls' book, journalist June  Callwood calls reports of incest  a "media phenomenon." Mindful  of the thousands suffering in the  same way, she said to Ashby-  Rolls, "Of course you'll do a  book."  Ashby-Rolls, in her introduction, says she has written not for  retaliation bul to reach out lo  other survivors, to those "who  support us and to Ihose who  wanl to gain greater insight into  the devastation of incest."  That last is directed to people  like me, the male, one of those  "many non-offending men..who  knowing or having heard whal is  going on, stand impolently by.  Tacit. Afraid."  How sadly true.

In his words and mind, a  small house. Wow. Am I supposed to be impressed wilh this  flagrant ostenlatiousness?  As the 2,000 square foot and  monster, mega houses continue  to pop up in Roberts Creek, as  they continue to garishly smear  the once treed landscape with  Iheir open-mouthed, over-  glassed windowed appearance, I  shudder and cannot look. I musl  develop tunnel vision in order lo  travel down the once treed roads  of Roberls Creek.  Pace it, folks, 1/2 acre lots  cannot hide or give privacy  from neighbours with mega  houses.  Familiar changes  To see this scenario occurring right in my neighbourhood  is devastating as I have already  watched it happen in my old  hometown neighbourhood in  Burnaby.  Last year when my folks'  house in that community, with  only Iwo bedrooms and one  bath, sold for a ridiculous  $250,000 (and today would sell  for an extra $100,000), I was  amazed. But my elderly retired  parents could no longer afford  the taxes and with their honesty  and pride, refused to defer those  taxes.  My mother had become  increasingly terrified of the  'ball' as she had for the last year  been watching it knock down  and smash into small pieces, her  once quiet neighbourhood.

We walked one  block down and two over. By IO  am where once a modest family  home had stood, just across the  street from her friends, a huge  pile of rubble sat.  The excavator was scooping  up (he mess and dumping il into  the back of a semi-truck with an  open trailer.  Then there's the case of her  friend and neighbour just one  block away who kept her home  hidden by trees and large hedges  over the years. She was known  as the lady in Ihe pink house.  When she was removed lo a  davis bay news  'home', her house was sold and  of course, torn down. But every  living leaf and branch was  ripped out of the ground and  trucked away.  The property was then turned  into two identical houses - mega  houses - two of them on one lot!  They may have sold for over  $300,000 each, but the fence  built to divide them had a  crooked gate.

Inside, you will find more than two dozen  children, with their moms or dads, engrossed in  play.  Kari, the child care worker, has set up a number  of preschool age appropriate sta- ������  tions - a craft table, painting, free  play area, story telling and a circle  time, where children enjoy a snack.  Coffee is available for parents to  enjoy as Ihey chat with one another.  Iris and Pam, the child care assistants, are busy watching the children  and assisting where needed. The  laughter is infectious, pulling you to  join in the fun.    There is a real need for some volunteer grandmas and grandpas to come out to help  supervise Ihe children so their parents can have a  short break. Especially helpful would be a volunteer who could play piano during circle time.  Therese Egan, coordinator for the Parent and  Tot Program, greets parents at Ihe door and collects  a very nominal fee for attending. She would like to  take this opportunity lo thank the corporate sponsors - Clayton's Heritage Market, SC Credit Union,  'There is a real  need for volunteer  grandmas and  grandpas to help  supervise the  children..'  Gibsons Building Supplies, Gibsons Realty and  SuperValu.  As one parent said, this is an excellent way to  prepare my child for preschool and school. He  learns the social skills of being in a group situation  with my parental guidance.

Joel Johnstone photo  haibour watch  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  In last week's column, mention was made of some good  people who live in our midst,  with the realization that there  must be many such people who  receive no rewards or recognition. There are some who make  life easier for others by just  lending a helping hand when  needed, or who just make a  phone call to someone who is  lonely.  If you are aware of any such  residents it would be good to  hear from you and lo make  mention of who they are and  what they do. Likewise, since  there are so many new young  families in our area, it would be  nice lo hear of new Halfmoon  Bay babies. Please give me a  call in Ihe evenings so that I can  pass along the good news to  readers.  While on the subject of  babies, those little ones who  start off their life in Halfmoon  Bay are indeed a fortunate  breed. Not only can Ihey attend  one of the finest elementary  schools on the Coast, bul they  have a chance to enjoy life as  little people and close to home  loo.  The Halfmoon Bay Child  Care Centre has many programs  lo suit children from the age of  18 months to 12 years.

The regular day care program is from three years lo  school age and Ihose from six to  12 can participate in the 'out of  school' programs. Drop-ins are  also welcome and there is also a  group called 'kinder club' for  ;i��es five and six.

What fun we all had skating  on North Lake last Sunday.  You'd look around and off in  one corner was a serious hockey  game going on, then a rafl of little children just learning to skate  and meanwhile a group making  the rounds of the lake. What a  relaxing, refreshing activity and  a real treat for us west coasters.

All the melodrama and most of the singers and  comedy will be there. Come on  out. Blow the cobwebs away.  Boo the villain. Cheer Ihe hero.  It's called Sunshine Vaudeville -  perfect for this lime of year.  Pam Feichlner of Driftwood  Players said the show has been  shortened a little from November's program "Hopefully, it'll  be ideal this time...All lhe  monologues are slill on and  there'll be some singing."  Rehearsals are scheduled in  the first week of February.  Driftwood Players' Vaudeville repertoire, which played at the  Roberts Creek Hall in November, is billed to rerun in Pender  Harbour Feb. 6. Joel Johnstone pholo  Art centre to host feminist reading  Non-fiction has ceased to be  regarded as a means to an end,  or merely a way of funnelling  information, images and messages lo lhe public, says the editor of a book of feminist writings who will read at the Arts  Cenlre Friday, Jan. 29.  Susan Crean's anthology  Twist and Shoul: A Decade of  Feminist Writing in This Magazine, is gleaned from writings  which first appeared in This  Magazine's Female Complaints  column from 1986 to 1991, also  includes feature pieces from tht*  magazine.'  The collection of essays,  observations and fantasy are by  self-described citizens of the  world and keepers of history.  "We come from and belong to  many communities which, in  one way or another, are struggling for survival, articulation  and self-definition," says Crean.  For a decade, the Females  Complaints column provided a  space "for a multiplicity of voices lhat was nonetheless coherent, that came together as a cho  rus," Crean is quoted as saying.  The column reflected the changing experiences of Ihe women's  movement through the 1980s,  "We were learning how lo use  power when you have it.  "Whal this anthology tells us,  is that non-fiction has ceased to  be regarded as a means to an  end. Moreover, women have  taken to it with alacrity and in  large numbers. Is it possible lhal  creative documentary is one  place women have found to  write their experiences with  some saftjjy?" she asks.     _. ���  "I believe in the efficacy of  cultural knocks," says Crean.  "In lhe end, we have lo believe  in positive purpose of mistakes,  trust the irritation lo produce  changes in language, to create  awareness. So, lei's dance to  that dream."  The anthology includes  works by Margaret Alwood,  Sandy Frances Duncan, Heather  Menzies and Crean herself,  among others. She terms Ihe  book "raunchy, irreverent and  occasionally rude," but adds  with humour, "you can count on  us being loud, shrill and strident."  Crean, who is currently writing a book on Emily Carr, is a  frequent radio and television  commentator and speaker on  cultural and feminist issues. In  1989, she was appointed the  first MacLean Hunter chair in  creative non-fiction at UBC and  has served as the chair of the  Writers' Union of Canada. Her  other works include Who's  AfijjHg^j^'attadian Culture and  Newsworthy: the LIvetV'Trf  Media Women. She writes for a  variety of magazines including  This Magazine, Canadian Art,  Toronto Life and Books in  Canada.  Crean appears at the Arts  Centre courtesy of the Canada  Council and admission is free.  The evening will feature readings from Twist and Shoul and  will be followed by a question  period, lhe performance begins  al 8 pm. Copies of Twist and  Shout will be on sale during the  intermission.  FLEA MARKET  $  Saturday, January 30th  S.I.B.

Iiflwt-  #  West Side  Story  billed  The Sunshine Coast Music  Society has chosen Leonard  Bernstein's 1957 Broadway  classic West Side Story for this  year's musical theatre production. As wilh last year's  acclaimed production of Anne  of Green Gables, production  and rehearsals will progress  through Ihe springtime for a  series of performances in lhe  first two weeks of July.  In selecting West Side Story,  artistic director Lyn Vernon has  chosen a piece which will continue to encourage participation  of young people, with exciting  opportunities for choreography  and youth chorus. Bernstein's  powerful musical score will be  a great showpiece for the  Soundwaves Orchestra which  Vernon has worked hard to  develop in the past few years.  While there are a more limited  number of adult parts in this  production, there are many  opportunities for backstage and  producing roles.  The challenging choreography for the musical will once  again be directed by Karen  Boothroyd and those who  enjoyed Ihe young dancers in  Anne are in for a treat. The  stage director will be well  known Chatelech drama teacher, Kerry Mahlman.  The nexl step in the production is selection of the cast and  chorus on Saturday, Feb. 13.  Male and female singers and  dancers in Ihe range of 14 to 30  years old, as well as adult males  for four roles, are invited to  audition between 3 pm and 8  pm at St. John's United Church  in Davis Bay. No great amount  of experience is necessary. Further information for auditions is  available from Lyn Vernon at  886-0995.  The non-performing public  is invited to volunteer for carpentry, design, costumes, props,  . makeup, stage hands, promotion, fundraising and program  layout. Please call 886-0995.

By May 2, Vernon is hoping  the string players will be ready  for public exposure. She's  already planned a big night for  Ihem alongside the music society's own orchestra and choir, as  well as Chatelech musicians.

The Driftwood Players have  opened their new year on the  Coast with a casting call for the  Neil Simon play "The Odd  Couple" (a female version) to  be held Feb. 8.  But that's not ail they've got  on their plate. When asked what  Coast residents can expect in  the way of on-stage entertainment, president Nest Lewis  detailed a list of activities.  Expect soon a scaled down  version of the vaudeville show  recently seen in Roberts Creek,  said Lewis. It's going "up the  road" to be performed in Pender  Harbour.  A professionally directed  play is in the works also, said  Lewis. For those who might  remember, the last such undertaking resulted in Ihe very popular Steel Magnolias, a play that  sold out for 11 consecutive  nights.  There are further plans for a  lighter show, perhaps a dinner  theatre, if people show the interest, said Lewis. And then  there's the drama course that is  scheduled to begin mid-February. This year the focus is on  basic acting skills, said Lewis,  who alongside two other Driftwood members, teaches the  courses.  "The whole thing was  inspired by a wonderful woman  by the name of Eileen Glassford," said Lewis, remembering  back to the drama group's origins. Offering plays of all varieties, including pantomimes,  English comedy, mysteries and  crowd pleasers, Lewis said Ihe  group's been running "on again,  off again" on the Coast for  about 25 years. Lewis herself  has been a member for 20 of  those years.  From high schools students  to seniors, the group is open to  anyone with time and energy.

It could be the robin was on a reconnaissance  lission.  Tom Bitting, the first vice-president, chaired the  Ifirst general meeting of 1993, on January 21. Presi-  Ident Stan Johnson is resting comfortably at St.  ��� Mary's Hospital and we hope he's  ��� home soon and we see his smiling face ������  I in our midst.  Before Ihe last census was conducted, I asked the readership to consider  [carefully their answers to questions of  I disability. In the Stats Can survey, dis-  (ability was defined as 'any restriction or  6.9 per cent  of children  under 15  experience  The survey found:  ��� Disability increases with age - 6.9 per cent of  children under IS experience some level of disability compared to 14 per cent of adults aged 35 to 54  and lo 46 per cent of Ihose aged 65 and over.  ��� Severity of disability also increases with age -  3 per cent of children with disabilities had a severe  disability, compared to 31.6 per cent of those aged  65 and over.  ������a.     ��� The proportion of those reporting disabilities increased - in all age groups since  1986.  ��� At 52.5 per cent, a limited ability to  walk, move or stand were the most commonly reported disabilities, followed by a  limited ability to bend, dress or handle  lack of ability to perform an activity in s(tme level of sma" 0DJecls at 50.2 per cent  I Ihe manner considered normal for a ��� Pmvlnclnllv. ihe hio  disability  [human being.' About 16.8 per cent of  [British    Columbia's    population        ���  (540,215) reported a disability in 1991,  [ up from 13.8 per cent five years ago.  Stats Can said the increase in part reflected the  I aging of the population, but also a greater willing-  i ness on the part of people to admit they have a disability. This last fact I hope to take a bit of credit  for. Those of us who have Anally decided to 'come  out' see Ihis as a step in the right direction and give  Ihose people a hoorah and encourage others to do  the same. These disabilities range in degree from  mild to moderate to severe.  rtmemberwlten  Provincially, the highest proportion of  disabled was reported in Nova Scotia at  ������ 21.4 per cent, followed by Saskatchewan  at 19.2 per cent. The lowest proportion  was in Newfoundland at 10 per cent, Ihe second  lowest was Ihe Yukon at 11.1 per cent, followed by  Quebec at 12.4 per cent.  ��� 93.7 per cent of those with disabilities lived in  private households compared to 6.3 who lived in  health-related institutions.  Weather conditions play a big part in Ihe percentages of where people wilh disabilities chose lo  live. However, that doesn't explain Saskatchewan  and Nova Scotia with all their ice and snow.  5YEAKSAGO  Sechelt Mayor Bud Koch  was informed by the provincial  government that they had  approved the joint gravel extraction projecl of the Sechelt Indian  Band and Construction Aggregates. In a statement to the  Coast News, Koch said "I  believe this now, more than  ever, indicates the need for a  canal sludy."  Both councils of Sechelt and  Gibsons have declared unanimous support for Ihe United  Fishermen and Allied Workers  Union in the fight against a  recent General Agreement on  Tariff and Trade, charging that  Canada has been practicing  unfair processing of raw herring,  sockeye and pink salmon.  10 YEARS AGO  Gibsons Town Council celebrated its new status as a lown |  council by passing Ihe first zoning bylaw which does not have I  to go to Victoria lo be ratified.  Bylaw 444 will permit the con-  slruclion of Ihe Gibsons Landing |  Hotel in the Bay area.  15 YEARS AGO  Approximately 250 people  packed themselves into Madeira  Park Community Hall on Jan. 21  to make Iheir views known lo  Ihe representatives of BC Hydro  about the proposed powerline  running from Cheekeye near  Squamish lo Dunsmuir on Vancouver Island.  20 YEARS AGO  The spiritual home of the  Sechelt Indian Band is about to  Going Away  on Vacation?

Gilbert Joe, supervising coordinator of Ihe band  council's housing rehabilitation  committee, reveals that the  Protestant chapel of the RCAF  base Ladner has been purchased  by the band and is now awaiting  favourable weather to be  shipped in two sections by Apex  Construction Company.  25 YEARS AGO  Petitions wilh more than  1000 names on them protesting  ferry service operations were  being gathered up Wednesday  along the Sunshine Coast.  30 YEARS AGO  Immediately after the Cuban  crisis, 41 per cent of Canadians  wanted nuclear weapons for our  forces; 17 per cenl were  opposed; 37 per cent wanted  them to be available for use if  we needed them, but fell Ihey  should remain in Ihe US until an  emergency. Five per cent had no  opinion.  35 YE.4RS AGO  Roberls Creek Improvement  Association has received 38  replies from 62 letters sent to all  MLAs asking their support in  getting the road through  Squamish finished.  45 YEARS AGO  Nearly 800 voters are eligible  to vole in the forthcoming  plebiscite for a licensed hotel at  Gibsons. The area affected by  Ihe controversial question of  whether Gibsons should be wet  or dry, lies between Hopkins  and Ihe junction of the upper  and lower Sechelt highway.
