 The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast        25* per copy on news stands     November 7,1988     Volume 42     Issue 45  Certainly  these children  seated  inside  Sunnycrest  Mall  will   remember Hallowe'en '88, although they seem unconcerned with  the weird and wonderful characters hovering nearby. _\m mo��� pholo  Fire narrowly averted  A near disaster on Hallowe'en  by Hal Blaine  A fire catastrophe threatened  Gibsons main downtown business block and the Shell Oil fuel  storage depot there on  Hallowe'en night. A major  emergency was narrowly averted when property owner Jim  Gurney rushed from his rooftop  lookout point down into his  Richard's Men's Wear store.  Owner Gurney had seen a  burning missile thrown through  his window. Suffering minor  burns to his thumb and a finger,  he picked up the burning missile  as it was beginning to set fire to  the carpet and a rack of  clothing.  Gurney carried the conventional highway emergency flare  and its nearly yard-long flame  out the back of the store. At  almost the same moment a  youth kicked in the door of the  Gower Point and School Roads  store after seeing the flaming  missile sail into the store  through the window.  The young man was also  entering to prevent a fire,  Gurney told the Coast News.  Tuesday night in Gibsons  Town council Gurney and  Alderman Lilian Kunstler said a  Roman candle rocket war between Gibsons and Sechelt  students led up to the incident.  A youth alleged to have thrown  the metal cylinder highway  flare, missing some students  and hitting the store window,  was arrested, said Gibsons  RCMP Sergeant Ed Hill.  The police findings in the  matter were submitted to the  Crown prosecutor who will  decide on proceeding with a  court charge, said Sergeant Hill.  Gibsons Volunteer Fire Chief  Randy Rodrique told the Coast  News the whole Gower Point  Road block on both sides of the  street from School Road to  Winn Road was threatened, including the Shell fuel depot.  Property owner Gurney's  Hallowe'en vigilance and quick  action was the only thing that  prevented a disaster, he said.  "I wish there was a bylaw to  prohibit all fireworks or  firecrackers. Fireworks are a  potential arson danger. However, 1 have no quarrel with  their use by licensed operators,"  said Fire Chief Rodrique.  Mel Buckmaster, local assistant fire commissioner, was just  about first on the scene of the  incident and agrees pretty well  with the fire chief.  "Gurney actually saved his  store. Otherwise it would have  gone up in smoke," said Assistant Fire Commissioner Buck-  master. The device thrown  through the store window is one  motorists usually pack for  emergencies and with its bottom  spike is used by police at accident scenes, he said.  "They burn fairly violently.  There's .no reason for a kid to  have one. They shouldn't ever  be used for fireworks," he said.  The youths handling such  devices, and those at whom it  was thrown, could have been  very badly hurt, said Buck-  Please turn to page 6  On sexual abuse  Seminar in Sechelt  Many local teachers, school  counsellors and other helping  professionals will be attending a  training seminar on November  25 to 26 in Sechelt at the  Capilano Campus.  The conference is entitled  'The Healing Process: Post-  Disclosure Issues in Child Sexual Abuse'. It is sponsored by  School District 46 (Sunshine  Coast) and the Ministry of  Education. The workshop will  provide practical skills for participants who will be arriving  from all parts of British Columbia.  On Friday, November 25 Dr.  Bill Price and Brenda Knight  will talk on 'Helping the Sexually Abused Child in the  Classroom'. As well on Friday  Mary Ann Carter, a psycho  logist who works in treatment,  will assist counsellors with treatment techniques at the individual and group level.  On Saturday, November 26  from 9 am to noon, Jean  Stewart from Saanich School  District will discuss 'Teachers  and Touching'. On Saturday  also,  Carolyn  Hudnall  from  Vancouver, will offer a  workshop on treatment.  Carolyn has an extensive experience in working with female  victims.  Persons who are interested in  attending can contact Gwen  Struthers or Donna Schmirler at  886-8811 or 883-2457.  Reward offered  The $300 reward offered for the apprehension of the vandal, or the restitution for the vandalism, in the case of the  sawed-off Gibsons Town Hall weeping willow has been increased to $500.  An anonymous businessman has added $200 to the reward,  Mayor Diane Strom told town council the night of November  1.  "I hope this will be enough to find the miscreants and to  deter this kind of thing in future," said the mayor.  Local elections  Only Sechelt  gets to vote  ���  i  Democracy on the local front  seems alive and well heading into the municipal elections - but  only in Sechelt.  Two incumbents on the Sunshine Coast Regional District  have been returned by acclamation, Board Chairman Peggy  Connor from Area B and Vice-  chairman Brett McGillivray.  In Gibsons, onlv two candidates contested the three  available aldermanic seats, incumbent alderman Lilian  Kunstler and newcomer Ken  Collins were both returned by  acclamation.  Only in the District  Municipality of Sechelt are the  voters provided with the contest  for election that all agree is  healthy.  Mayor Bud Koch announced  last week that he would be seeking re-election and former  Hospital Board Chairman Tom  Meredith had announced  himself a candidate for the  mayoralty some time ago.  In addition, no fewer that six  candidates are seeking election  to the two aldermanic sea's  available. Incumbents Joyce  Kolibas and Len Herder are  joined by newcomers to the  local political scene, Bob  Graham, Charles Pratt, David  Wells, and Bob Young.  A meeting of all the Sechelt  candidates will be held in  Sechelt Elementary School at  7:30 pm on Wednesday,  November 9.  Rockwood Lodge  is flourishing  Where there once was none,  there are now five employees at  Rockwood Lodge. Through a  B.C. government grant program, 'Employment Plus',  Rockwood has been able to hire  five people to help renovate,  landscape, do general office  duties and answer queries from  the public about the facilities  and the activities at the lodge.  The new employees are now  involved in preparing the lodge  and the grounds for 50 teachers  from all over B.C. who will be  on the Sunshine Coast from  November 10 to 13 partaking in  a computer training program.  During the duration of the  'Employment  Plus' program,  Rockwood Lodge welcomes the  general public to visit the lodge  and enjoy our art shows and to  tour the lodge and the annex.  Hours of viewing are 9 to 4:30,  Monday to Friday from now ,  until April 1989.  The month of November aif  display   features  oils,   water- :  colours and wood carvings.

The Americans are doing it; the  Canadians are doing it in town and country. Well, not  quite all Canadians.  We congratulate the citizens of Sechelt on the healthy  democratic showing that they are giving in the municipal  election of 1988. Two stalwart candidates for mavor with  clearly differentiated positions and six candidates for three  aldermanic seats is a healthy situation indeed.  But where is the electoral interest in the regional district  or in the Town of Gibsons?  It has always seemed a mystery to us that people who  are political to the point of religious zeal in federal and  provincial matters are as indifferent as vegetables to the  selection of their, gardener in matters of municipal interest.  As indifferent as vegetables and as much affected by the  choice, we might add.  Such indifference is not good for the electorate and it is  assuredly not good for the politicians who continue in office without the need for defining their positions or defending their records.  A charge  of cowardice  On the third page of letters to the editor Barrie Redman  accuses us of cowardice in the matter of printing controversial letters.  Weekly, more people write for and to the Coast News  than our advertising base can accommodate. Valiantly we  try to give everyone their chance. Weekly, we have to leave  something out.  It could be ventured that few weekly newspapers have  the high level of printed correspondence that the Coast  News wrestles with, but Mr. Redman calls us cowards  because some axe of his was not given a sufficiently prompt grinding. Ah, well!  ...from th* files ol th�� COMT NEWS  5 YEAR AGO  Competition was hot in the Gibsons Town elections.  Five were running for two council seats and two for the  office of mayor. Former mayor Larry Labonte was contesting the chief magistrate's seat with Deputy-mayor  Diane Strom.  Coast teachers were ready to withdraw services In  support of province-wide strikes if government-union  negotiations failed.  Sechelt Village's only referendum in the looming election was on Sunday shopping.  An agreement between private developers and the  town for construction of a marina in Gibsons Harbour  was nearly complete.  10 YEARS AGO  Alderman Lorraine Goddard decides to seek reelection to Gibsons municipal council. "We can't stop  growth because people will come and fall In love with  the place as I did. But the growth mustn't be allowed to  strangle us," she said to point out the need for control  and intelligent spending.  Also seeking re-election is Joyce Kolibas as alderman In the Sechelt municipal election.  A member of the R & K Forestry is pictured planting  firs on the banks of the creek diversion at Twin Creeks.  Trees will provide shade for spawning fish and prevent  bank erosion.  An Ashley woodstove, weighing about 250 pounds,  was taken from a garage on Fletcher Road. As yet, it is  not known If the theft Is a practical joke. The stove was  last seen on Halloween.  20 YEARS AGO  Mr. and Mrs. J. Dowdie of Gibsons celebrate their  Golden Wedding Anniversary and receive a letter of congratulations from Prime Minister Trudeau.  Three juveniles face a charge of possession of  dynamite. The trio, according to police information,  planned a Halloween blow-up of Roberts Creek bridge.  According to the Library Development Commission in  Victoria, In the 2,000 population bracket Gibsons'  library rates first In circulation and second In the  number of members and amount of money it spends for  books.  30 YEARS AGO  Rural mall service for Sechelt area and an increase in  the rural service In Halfmoon Bay, was arranged by Conservative MP W.H. Payne. He added that he Is working  hard on obtaining a $25,000 grant for the Sechelt-  Gibsons Municipal Airport.  A gas cookerama to be held at Roberts Creek Hall,  will feature a demonstration of modern gas range cooking.  40 YEARS AGO  The Roberts Creek String Orchestra under the leadership of Miss Margaret Mclntyre, will present their Fall  Concert, Friday.

The veterans of many  wars will gather at the Cenotaph  to remember the dead and  honour the veterans of wars  gone by.  The pipers will play thrilling  music and somebody will recite  In Flanders Fields the Poppies  Blow. I shall not be there.  I am so old I can remember  too many wars. I was eight  years old when my brother Jim  joined the 54th Kootenay Battalion and went away to serve in  France in the First World War.  Luckily for him, at Camp  Petawawa they discovered he  was a farmer's son and that he  knew how to handle horses.  They assigned him as a  transport driver carrying food  and ammunition to the front  and bringing back the wounded.  This job, although he was  himself wounded twice,  possibly saved his life.  He told us stories about that  war which made us shudder:  about the poor young fighting  men who were made drunk on  rum before they were sent to  their deaths. He told of the  body lice which fed on their  skins and of the rats made fat  by feasting on human bodies;  and of the courage of the  stretcher-bearers who would  crawl out, often in mud to their  knees, into no-man's land and  bring back the poor, screaming  wounded soldiers.  He told of one section of the  western front which had been  won and lost so often they  recognized the trench where the  dried, dead hand protruded  from the wall and they used to  shake it. Nobody knew the nationality of that pathetic hand,  whether it was French, German  or Canadian.  There was a story which was  circulated   among   the   men.  When a troop of infantry was  "going over the top," the men  were raked by a sweep of  machine gun fire and flopped  on their stomachs to avoid it.  When it was past, the commanding officer shouted, "Get  up all you bloody cowards and  charge." A sergeant said, "Not  all bloody cowards, sir, but all  bloody dead."  I have a book, The First  World War, by the historian  A.J.P. Taylor. It is profusely illustrated with photographs.  There is Kaiser William of Germany riding horseback beside  his counsin, King George the  Fifth of England.  There are pictures of all the  great generals of both sides.  There is Lenin and Trotsky and  Joseph Stalin and Corporal  Hitler with his friends.  'Also there is old, white-  haired Keir Hardy addressing a  peace meeting in Trafalgar  Square. There is a picture of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of  Austria and his wife whose  assassination in Sarajevo,  Bosnia, as the spark that ignited  the great conflagration of the  First World War.  There was no economic  reason for that war. All the  great nations had already taken  possession of the Third World  lands to exploit their natural  resources.  Small border clashes could  easily have been mediated. The  historian, Taylor, explains the  tragedy, "The great armies, accumulated to provide security  and preserve the peace, carried  the nations to war by their own  weight."  The same pattern applies today but in a more sinister manner. Big money is invested in the  war industries even when, as  everyone knows, a nuclear war  will destroy the earth and all the  life upon it.  Remember, it was the hand  gun of a foolish schoolboy in  Sarajevo that killed the Archduke and his wife.  In our Canada the peace  movement is growing stronger.  We have Physicians for the  Prevention of Nuclear War,  Lawyers for Social Responsibility, Veterans Against  Nuclear Arms, Students  Against Global Extinction.  Now we have a new one. It is  Educators for Nuclear Disarmament, founded recently by Matthew Speier, a teacher at  Capilano College.  If my brother Jim who  grasped the dried, dead hand of  the unknown soldier were alive  today, he would be glad to  know that warm, loving hands  are being joined all over the  world to prevent another war.

It is under increasing  pressure of rising population  and industrialization and the  destruction of resources and  pollution of the environment.  "The quality of life of individuals and societies depends  upon sustaining a healthy environment."  "Yet both the scale and the  pace of transformation of the  environment by human activities has been rapidly expanding. This expansion has pushed the environmental issue  squarely out and the agendas of  our newly interconnected global  society."  "The result is an increasing  awareness of the relationship  between environmental protection and social well-being."  I think the awareness is still  mainly limited to the biological  sciences and a section of the  general public; and that  awareness is greater and more  vocal in the parts of Canada  and the U.S. where the results  of environmental abuse are  more evident than they are in  B.C.  Even though the respective  president of Brazil and the  World Bank have finally  recognized the problems inherent in the destruction of the  tropical rain forests, there's little sign in the northwest that  politicians are concerned about  the destruction of the equally  important temperate rain forest.  It wasn't encouraging to read  that last year the forest companies exceeded the annual  allowable cut by 19 per cent.  One might have expected  both government and industry  to be taking a more responsible  attitude towards the goal of sustained yield. We know extra effort has been put into replanting  in recent years - but it'll be a  long time before these trees  mature.  On the Sunshine Coast I  believe the 10 year cutting plan  will now be achieved in five  years - and in an area where  tourism is an economic factor  this surely makes little sense.  The old story of the right hand  not knowing what the left is doing.  We know that cars contribute  to atmospheric pollution but the  Premier talks about doubling  the size of the Lions Gate bridge  - surely the answer to traffic  congestion is subsidized, affordable public transit?  "The question is not whether  there is enough energy," commented Patrick Mungai, a conference delegate from Kenya,  "but how efficiently are we using the natural resources which  are available."  Michael Hooker, chancellor  of the University of Maryland  expressed his concern about the  obscene greed with which we  consume resources. "It is a  reflection of our culture which  tells me that there's something  wrong with us spiritually."  The conference suggested  some achievable goals for the  year 2000.  1. Create plans and  timetables for the sustainable  use of land.  2. Establish a planetary trust  for the conservation of living  resources at levels adequate to  preserve regional and global life  support systems.  3. Achieve reductions in  rates of fossil fuel use by increasing the price proportional  to the cost incurred for environmental protection.  Remember the OPEC crisis  and how we all talked about  alternative energy sources, solar  heat, wind power and wood  burning stoves became popular  again? Now we've slipped back  to our old wasteful ways again  once the immediate crisis is  past.  It's still there though isn't it?  Showing itself in acid rain,  smog, increasing respiration  disease, etc.  We can't leave these long  term problems to governments  with short term political agendas. In the long run it'll be up to  each one of us. 20.  Coast News, November 7,1986  CASH PAID  For Some Cars and Trucks  Dead Car Removal  886-2020  TFN  1971 Chev window van. Very  good running cond.

Coast News, November 7,1988  Invited here  [Team evaluates special education  A team of educational ex-  i pens has spent the last week on  The Sunshine Coast gathering  data for an evaluation of the  I Special Education Program in  : School District 46.  Local teacher Colleen Elson,  '��� who was recently appointed to  ��� the new position of Director of  ; Special Education for this  [district, invited the team to  : make recommendations on the  existing program. They will  comment on aspects that are  working well, make recommen  dations for improvement and  suggest guidelines for further  development.  Team members are Chairperson Joanne Regush from Mission, Lauchlin Mawhinney  from Courtenay and Tom Watson from Qualicum.  During their stay on the  Coast the team has visited all  twelve schools in the district and  talked to principals, teachers,  aides, childcare workers and  parents. They also had a  meeting with Ben Pierre of the  Sechelt Indian Band and  discussed his concerns for native  students.  The team will be looking at  all aspects of the Special Education Program; gifted students,  native students, students with  learning disabilities, children  with multiple physical handicaps, the trainable mentally  handicapped, students who  have English as a second  language, the learning  assistance program, the  study/work experience program  and students who are visual or  hearing impaired or home or  hospital bound.  Asked whether they would be  looking at the problems of sexual abuse and drug and alcohol  abuse, team members explained  that these problems are integrated in to the counselling  and family guidance programs.  The first draft of the report is  expected to be in the hands of  the School Board in about a  month.

Anyone wishing  Police news this week  GIBSONS RCMP  i Police records show the  humber of no charge liquor  seizures in recent months have  been: August 30, September 19  and October 8.  Among the reasons for these  seizures is the one of minor in  possession.  Impaired driving charges in  September were four, in October three.  A Hopkins resdent reported  to the Coast News that his car  was damaged by a thrown rock  as he drove through Lower Gib  sons while a crowd of youths  milled about on Hallowe'en.  SECHELT RCMP  Sechelt RCMP are investigating irregularities in the  operation of the business  known as Trash n' Treasure in  Halfmoon Bay.  Those persons who had property on consignment sale and  have receipts issued by the store  operators are asked to contact  Constable R. Spenard.  Persons enquiring are asked  to quote file number 88-3197.  Gibsons Auxiliary  Now that the Sunshine  Coast's new Totem Lodge in  Sechelt is open, the hospital  auxiliaries on the coast have  committed themselves to raising  funds to furnish the lodge with  literally hundreds of items  which the provincial government never even thinks about.  For instance, only recently,  these auxiliaries raised over  $100,000 to purchase the latest  electric beds. As part of this ongoing drive to equip Totem  Lodge, and at the same time  maintain its commitment to St.  Mary's Hospital, the ladies of  the Gibsons branch held a Fall  Fiesta in the Anglican Church  Hall.  These ladies spent months  preparing for this event ��� collecting, preparing arts and  crafts for this worthy cause.  Judging from all the comments,  it was a great success.  The good merchants of Gibsons came through with all  kinds of support and assistance  and the auxiliary would like to  thank them, one and all:  All Occasion Flowers,  Chamberlin Gardens, Dockside  Pharmacy, Gibsons Building  Supplies, The Knit Wit, Ken's  Lucky Dollar, Richards, The  Gallery, Wishful Thinking and  Showpiece Frames  '  J*'-, ill  ,ALt..if��tiU,  i.lllif fAL iblJLi ,.  .. vl..4AlllLtilL jul.iU >  ..      ,    luJUiftlillailiJJl    IM,  ,    UUtilUljf  Guess Where  ; , _       ���  The usual prize of $5 will be awarded the first correct entry drawn  which locates the above.

We realize it would create a  dreadful hardship and a loss for  many. It would certainly pain  those of us who have given so  much to make the library what  it is today.  In going over the planning  and the budget once again there  are many things that cannot be  changed:  1. Our operating budget cannot  be cut any more.  2. We have to have more paid  staff.  3. Staff have to have reasonable  levels of pay.  4. We have to be open more  hours.  Therefore, each one of us  must better support the library  and make our own appropriate  contribution.  A. We will hire only one more  paid person.  B. The librarian will continue as  a volunteer.  C. The community must commit itself to assisting the board  in raising $5,770 needed  towards the operating budget.  D. The local governments must  be better informed and not be  under any illusion that they will  be funding the library adequately at 4.93 per capita.  Those of us that know libraries are for everyone of all ages  and who realize libraries help  meet the need for leisure,  recreation, art, culture, education and literacy in the community, will therefore, do our  best to keep the library open.

Your Electric Plus  heating system is clean and convenient, quiet and 100% efficient. You can  choose from a variety of ways to heat  electrically with Electric Plus, while  having oil, propane, butane, wood or  coal as a back-up heating system.  You can get Electric Plus  at a special low rate.  Electric Plus is offered at the special  low rate of 2.50 per kilowatt-hour  (about half the regular cost) because  it is surplus energy. When no  surplus is available, Electric Plus  is interrupted and you switch to  your back-up system. We expect  interruptions to be infrequent but  when one does occur it will likely last  throughout an entire heating season.  K)  pROJDOFOUR  Convenient Hydro financing is  available at only 8Mo.  For most homes, the entire cost of converting to  dual-fuel Electric Plus can be covered by  B.C.Hydro financing. It's available on approved  credit at only 8'/>%. Contractors can arrange  financing, which can be conveniently repaid  on Hydro bills over periods up to four years.  And once the cost of your installation is paid  back, your savings continue year after year.  Find out more about how to  save with Electric Plus.  Your home is probably eligible for Electric  Plus, unless it already has natural gas service.  If you now heat with oil or propane. Electric  Plus could save you $200 to $450 a year on  space heating, and another $110 to $130 on  water heating if you add it there too.  Heating equipment costs vary with  individual homes and wiring systems,  so see a contractor for specific  recommendations and prices.

The Americans are doing it; the  Canadians are doing it in town and country. Well, not  quite all Canadians.  We congratulate the citizens of Sechelt on the healthy  democratic showing that they are giving in the municipal  election of 1988. Two stalwart candidates for mayor with  clearly differentiated positions and six candidates for three  aldermanic seats is a healthy situation indeed.  But where is the electoral interest in the regional district  or in the Town of Gibsons?  It has always seemed a mystery to us that people who  are political to the point of religious zeal in federal and  provincial matters are as indifferent as vegetables to the  selection of their, gardener in matters of municipal interest.  As indifferent as vegetables and as much affected by the  choice, we might add.  Such indifference is not good for the electorate and it is  assuredly not good for the politicians who continue in office without the need for defining their positions or defending their records.  A charge  of cowardice  On the third page of letters to the editor Barrie Redman  accuses us of cowardice in the matter of printing controversial letters.  Weekly, more people write for and to the Coast News  than our advertising base can accommodate. Valiantly we  try to give everyone their chance. Weekly, we have to leave  something out.  It could be ventured that few weekly newspapers have  the high level of printed correspondence that the Coast  News wrestles with, but Mr. Redman calls us cowards  because some axe of his was not given a sufficiently prompt grinding. Ah, well!  .from th�� files of th�� CO.AST NEWS  _*_*, ��& __  ^_��A  S YEAR AGO  Competition was hot In the Gibsons Town elections.  Five were running for two council seats and two for the  office of mayor. Former mayor Larry Labonte was contesting the chief magistrate's seat with Deputy-mayor  Diane Strom.  Coast teachers were ready to withdraw services In  support of province-wide strikes If government-union  negotiations failed.  Sechelt Village's only referendum In the looming election was on Sunday shopping.  An agreement between private developers and the  town for construction of a marina in Gibsons Harbour  was nearly complete.  10 YEARS AGO  Alderman Lorraine Goddard decides to seek reelection to Gibsons municipal council. "We can't stop  growth because people will come and fall In love with  the place as I did. But the growth mustn't be allowed to  strangle us," she said to point out the need for control  and Intelligent spending.  Also seeking re-election is Joyce Kolibas as alderman In the Sechelt municipal election.  A member of the R & K Forestry is pictured planting  firs on the banks of the creek diversion at Twin Creeks.  Trees will provide shade for spawning fish and prevent  bank erosion.  An Ashley woodstove, weighing about 250 pounds,  was taken from a garage on Fletcher Road. As yet, It Is  not known if the theft is a practical joke. The stove was  last seen on Halloween.  20 YEARS AGO  Mr. and Mrs. J. Dowdie of Gibsons celebrate their  Golden Wedding Anniversary and receive a letter of congratulations from Prime Minister Trudeau.  Three juveniles face a charge of possession of  dynamite.

Remembrance Day views  by Isabel Ralph  Remembrance Day is here  again. The veterans of many  wars will gather at the Cenotaph  to remember the dead and  honour the veterans of wars  gone by.  The pipers will play thrilling  music and somebody will recite  In Flanders Fields the Poppies  Blow. I shall not be there.  I am so old I can remember  too many wars. I was eight  years old when my brother Jim  joined the 54th Kootenay Battalion and went away to serve in  France in the First World War.  Luckily for him, at Camp  Petawawa they discovered he  was a farmer's son and that he  knew how to handle horses.  They assigned him as a  transport driver carrying food  and ammunition to the front  and bringing back the wounded.  This job, although he was  himself wounded twice,  possibly saved his life.  He told us stories about that  war which made us shudder:  about the poor young fighting  men who were made drunk on  rum before they were sent to  their deaths. He told of the  body lice which fed on their  skins and of the rats made fat  by feasting on human bodies;  and of the courage of the  stretcher-bearers who would  crawl out, often in mud to their  knees, into no-man's land and  bring back the poor, screaming  wounded soldiers.  He told of one section of the  western front which had been  won and lost so often they  recognized the trench where the  dried, dead hand protruded  from the wall and they used to  shake it. Nobody knew the nationality of that pathetic hand,  whether it was French, German  or Canadian.  There was a story which was  circulated   among   the   men.  When a troop of infantry was  "going over the top," the men  were raked by a sweep of  machine gun fire and flopped  on their stomachs to avoid it.  When it was past, the commanding officer shouted, "Get  up all you bloody cowards and  charge." A sergeant said, "Not  all bloody cowards, sir, but all  bloody dead."  I have a book, The First  World War, by the historian  A.J.P. Taylor. It is profusely illustrated with photographs.  There is Kaiser William of Germany riding horseback beside  his counsin, King George the  Fifth of England.  There are pictures of all the  great generals of both sides.  There is Lenin and Trotsky and  Joseph Stalin and Corporal  Hitler with his friends.  Also there is old, white-  haired Keir Hardy addressing a  peace meeting in Trafalgar  Square. There is a picture of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of  Austria and his wife whose  assassination in Sarajevo,  Bosnia, as the spark that ignited  the great conflagration of the  First World War.  There was no economic  reason for that war. All the  great nations had already taken  possession of the Third World  lands to exploit their natural  resources.  Small border clashes could  easily have been mediated. The  historian, Taylor, explains the  tragedy, "The great armies, accumulated to provide security  and preserve the peace, carried  the nations to war by their own  weight."  The same pattern applies today but in a more sinister manner. Big money is invested in the  war industries even when, as  everyone knows, a nuclear war  will destroy the earth and all the  life upon it.  Remember, it was the hand  gun of a foolish schoolboy in  Sarajevo that killed the Archduke and his wife.  In our Canada the peace  movement is growing stronger.  We have Physicians for the  Prevention of Nuclear War,  Lawyers for Social Responsibility, Veterans Against  Nuclear Arms, Students  Against Global Extinction.  Now we have a new one. It is  Educators for Nuclear Disarmament, founded recently by Matthew Speier, a teacher at  Capilano College.  If my brother Jim who  grasped the dried, dead hand of  the unknown soldier were alive  today, he would be glad to  know that warm, loving hands  are being joined all over the  world to prevent another war.  The Man  He Killed  "Had he and I but met  By some old ancient inn,  We should have sat us down to wet  Hlght many a nipperkin!  "But ranged as infantry.  And staring face to face,  I shot at him as he at me,  And killed him in his place.  "I shot him dead because���  Because he was my foe,  Just so: my foe of course he was;  That's clear enough; although  "He thought he'd 'list, perhaps,  Off-hand-like���just as I���  Was out of work���had sold his traps-  No other reason why.  "Yes; quaint and curious war Is!  You shoot a fellow down  You'd treat, if met where any bar is,  Or help to half-a-crown."  Thomas Hardy  Maryanne's Viewpoint  Environment can't be left to politicians  by Maryanne West  The Agenda 2,000 conference  which took place in April set  out the problems of the environment as follows:  "The planet earth has finite  resources and a fragile atmosphere. It is under increasing  pressure of rising population  and industrialization and the  destruction of resources and  pollution of the environment.  "The quality of life of individuals and societies depends  upon sustaining a healthy environment."  "Yet both the scale and the  pace of transformation of the  environment by human activities has been rapidly expanding. This expansion has pushed the environmental issue  squarely out and the agendas of  our newly interconnected global  society."  "The result is an increasing  awareness of the relationship  between environmental protection and social well-being."  I think the awareness is still  mainly limited to the biological  sciences and a section of the  general public; and that  awareness is greater and more  vocal in the parts of Canada  and the U.S. where the results  of environmental abuse are  more evident than they are in  B.C.  Even though the respective  president of Brazil and the  World Bank have finally  recognized the problems inherent in the destruction of the  tropical rain forests, there's little sign in the northwest that  politicians are concerned about  the destruction of the equally  important temperate rain forest.  It wasn't encouraging to read  that last year the forest companies exceeded the annual  allowable cut by 19 per cent.  One might have expected  both government and industry  to be taking a more responsible  attitude towards the goal of sustained yield. We know extra effort has been put into replanting  in recent years - but it'll be a  long time before these trees  mature.  On the Sunshine Coast I  believe the 10 year cutting plan  will now be achieved in five  years - and in an area where  tourism is an economic factor  this surely makes little sense.  The old story of the right hand  not knowing what the left is doing.  We know that cars contribute  to atmospheric pollution but the  Premier talks about doubling  the size of the Lions Gate bridge  - surely the answer to traffic  congestion is subsidized, affordable public transit?  "The question is not whether  there is enough energy," commented Patrick Mungai, a conference delegate from Kenya,  "but how efficiently are we using the natural resources which  are available."  Michael Hooker, chancellor  of the University of Maryland  expressed his concern about the  obscene greed with which we  consume resources. "It is a  reflection of our culture which  tells me that there's something  wrong with us spiritually."  The conference suggested  some achievable goals for the  year 2000.  1. Create plans and  timetables for the sustainable  use of land.  2. Establish a planetary trust  for the conservation of living  resources at levels adequate to  preserve regional and global life  support systems.  3. Achieve reductions in  rates of fossil fuel use by increasing the price proportional  to the cost incurred for environmental protection.  Remember the OPEC crisis  and how we all talked about  alternative energy sources, solar  heat, wind power and wood  burning stoves became popular  again? Now we've slipped back  to our old wasteful ways again  once the immediate crisis is  past.  It's still there though isn't it?  Showing itself in acid rain,  smog, increasing respiration  disease, etc.  We can't leave these long  term problems to governments  with short term political agendas. In the long run it'll be up to  each one of us. Coast News, November 7,1988  State of marsh is a case for sorrow  Editor:  I have written the following  letter to Alderman Joyce  Kolibas of Sechelt council:  Dear Mrs. Kolibas,  I have just come in from a  walk around the Sechelt Marsh.  I understand that the village  council has recently given the  Marsh Society a "99-year lease  arrangement" on the land upon  which the Marsh stands. If you  are not the people to whom I  should be addressing these concerns, please pass them along to  those who are responsible.  As we walked on the pathway  next to the works yard, our  hearts sank. The so called "improved" waterway adjacent to  the ugly unscreened concrete  block grey edifice was empty of  water.  It was just mud. There were  tracks, one presumes those of  the unfortunate beaver, all  around the muddy area. The entrance to the beaver lodge was  completely exposed and the  water was no higher than a mud  puddle.  Any water which was standing had an oily slick on the surface and was garbage-strewn  and neglected looking. An old  bicycle frame was thrown  carelessly on the bank next to  the beaver lodge.  From the pathway which used to be screened by bushes and  low trees, one can enjoy the  wire and plastic mesh fence  which is rudely constructed,  torn and hanging down in  places. The little bridge which  used to be a pleaant place to  stop and look for the beaver is  now a dead end overlooking a  culvert with a rusty hinged gate.  Above it is neaped loose  gravel and rocks of the gravel  road which has been in a state  of construction for months  now. The water is filthy with a  scunge on it.  It is also as shallow as a mud  puddle. In fact, many parts of it  are again just oily looking mud  with pathetic animal tracks all  about.  Farther down the path one  has a perfect view of the new  works yard. There are heaps of  black plastic drainage pipe, random piles of various sizes of  pipe, piles of assorted garbage  consisting of twisted wires and  other damaged pieces of equipment and junk.  On the weed-strewn bank  above our lovely new works  building, amongst the weeds,  someone with a cute sense of  humor has placed a twisted  piece of junk metal with a sign  designating it "art". I felt that  the latter touch fit in well with  the general sensitivity that the  village has for the users and  creatures of the Marsh.  When I read in the local  papers about the village turning  our home here in Sechelt into a  canal, and I see the way the administration handles the Marsh  situation, as well as the lack of  feeling for the people who care  about the natural beauties of  the area, I am saddened and  disgusted. It seems that the  village no longer cares about  Sechelt as a home and sees it only as a money-making venture.  Dig out the sand and well it.  Dredge the Marsh and put in  plastic pipe to "improve" it.  Scoop out the very ground  which makes the townsite, to  dig a canal which will be used to  haul away the trees, the  minerals from the hillsides, and  the fake seafood feeding on the  waters. Maybe I am the only  one who cares about Sechelt as  a home for people?  The local papers seem hesitant about printing letters which  present other than the commercial viewpoint. Those of us who  try to arouse the populace into  caution about over-development are regarded as 'cranks'.  For heaven's sake, the sake  of the world as we know it,  speak up! What you lose to  commerce you lose forever.  The dollar is not the most and  only aspect to consider. Think.  Joyce, I am appealing to you  to put a stop to the kind of  development that is rapidly  eating up Sechelt as a living  Meredith states his case  Editor:  I am pleased to have accepted  nomination for the mayoralty  of the District of Sechelt. 1 am  also pleased that Mr. Koch has  accepted nomination for the  same office. Appointment by  acclamation to an elective office  is not healthy for any  municipality.  Some residents of the district  suggest that if I am elected, the  canal proposal would be dead,  that the proposed golf course  would be dead, and that Block 7  would not be developed. Further, it has been suggested that I  am 'in the pocket' of one of the  incumbent aldermen and also  the regional board.  Not one of these suggestions  is true - I am my own man,  beholden to no one. As far as  the canal, and the golf course  are concerned - they are interesting proposals, to be  studied. I would have to be con  vinced that sufficient homework had been done to warrant  proceeding.  I am convinced that there is  too much political interference  in the administration and operation of district affairs. The  district must be put on a proper  businesslike basis, with no hidden agendas.  It is important that we all exercise our privilege and vote on  November 19.  T.W. Meredith  Danger of deforestation  Editor:  As we hear about the earth's  atmosphere warming up, one of  the most obvious causes is the  deforestation that is taking  place. We on the Sunshine  Coast have the opportunity of  living in the cool and beautiful  green of giant cedars. This  should motivate us to protect  our forests.  When we look to the future,  those countries who will prosper  are ihose who use wisely and  appreciatively their resources. 1  imagine instead of tug boats  continuing to haul log booms lo  Port Mellon if we started seeing  tug boats hauling paper to be  recycled. Imagine engineers and  business people coming from  other parts of the world to see a  paper mill designed lo have  minimum impact on the environment, a mill set in the  beauly of the mountains,  forests and ocean.  As more cities seek to develop  recycling programs, there will  be a need for someone to effi  ciently use that paper garbage.  In our personal lives, we need  to re-use our paper envelopes  and grocery bags, avoid buying  products with excessive packaging. Large stores could perhaps  start hiring managers to oversee  waste management. The earth  can't stand much longer our  throw-away, profit-making,  over-consuming habits.  For our children, let's  become thoughtful and creative  with the challenges set before  us.  Denise Lagasse  Timeless thought  Editor:  I don't know if you are  familiar with the following  quotation from "Out of My  Life and Thought", by Albert  Schweitzer, and attributed to  Lao-tse of the 6th Century,  B.C.  It seems to me a remarkable  piece of wisdom and, looked at  in one way, somewhat  discouraging in that it was written so long ago and yet we are  where we are today.  R.S. Woodsworth  "Weapons are disastrous implements; no tools for a noble  being. Only when he cannot do  otherwise does he make use of  them. Quiet and peace are for  him the highest. He conquers,  but he knows no joy in it. He  who would rejoice in victory  would be rejoicing in murder.  At the victory celebration, the  general should take his place as  Is the custom at funeral  ceremonies. The slaughter of  human beings in great numbers  should be lamented with tears  of compassion. Therefore  should he, who has conquered  in battle, bear himself as if he  were at a festival of mourning."

SHOP LOCALLY  Gibsons' official plan  by Hal Blaine  While aiming lo contain recent strong development pressure and maintain the Sunshine  Coast quality of life, the draft  of the new Gibsons Official  Plan Bylaw proposes studies  and programs for industrial incentives, senior citizen housing,  tourism, town land use, historic  assets and recreation development.  Presented to council November 1 by Planner Rob Buchan  and given first reading, Official  Plan Bylaw 600 is a modernization of the first Gibsons Official  Plan passed in 1985. The first  plan provided for this modernization to take place in three  years.  The new bylaw is also designed to take into account new  legislation and the perceived  need to devise some protective  mechanisms against the imminent pressures of development,  particularly in our downtown  areas, Planner Buchan said. He  noted most local residents chose  to live here principally because  they have a particular view of  their quality of life and don't  want to see big changes in it.  The basic problem of the  plan, he said, is how to best  preserve local life quality in the  face of inevitable residential,  commercial and industrial  development pressures.  The new Official Plan calls  for three major zoning bylaw  amendments. The first would  zone land adjacent to Charman  and Gibson Creek as greenbelts.  The second zoning change  would show expansion of industrial and commercial zones  and other land use changes by  development application. The  third would include a combined  commercial/multi-family zone  in the lower town only.  A significant subdivision  bylaw amendment would dis  courage access onto Highway  101, Reed Road and the future  Charman Creek Road.  The draft plan sees the town  enlisting assistance from other  government levels to attain major goals. The first of four major goals is to expand and diversify the industrial base.  Second is to enhance the attractiveness of Gibsons as a  tourist centre. Third is to expand the permanent public transit system and link it to other  areas.  Fourth is to enlarge the protected waterfront facilities to  Armours Beach Park from the  government wharf.  Especially sensitive areas of  the town are noted. First cited is  the necessity for extreme  vigilance over any forth-coming  attempts to develop parts of the  Gospel Rock area. Care is needed there because of its unique  features and the hazard of  downstream flooding.  An extreme flood danger  from Charman and Gibson  Creeks is noted. Channels and  culverts are very inadequate, the  plan says.  In an extreme storm situa-'  tion, roads and private properties will be damaged. Extra  development charges would  cover correction costs when the  economic climate permits.  In the municipal marina,  dumping of sewage from boats  should be prohibited as a condition of moorage. The town  would implement a harbour  village landscape design for the  Gibsons Landing development  permit areas for street and  pathway lighting, rest areas,  and planting.  A bypass should relieve Gibsons traffic congestion which is  due to ferry traffic and its conflict with local traffic. The  validity of the bypass route  should be kept open to question.

A major  tourist accommodation complex (i.e. hotel) would be encouraged in the lower town,  preferably on the waterfront,  being the only building allowed  higher than that area's height  restriction.  High priority would be completion of the sidewalk from Armours Beach to the new Gibsons Marina. The same goes for  acquisition of at least one lot on  Gibsons Bluff as a public  lookout.  Linear parks established  wherever possible along Charman and Gibsons Creeks would  connect with the ocean-front  sidewalk. A nature park with  wildfowl habitat trail system  would be developed in town-  owned land between Cochrane  and Burns Roads.  To re-establish the harbour  village character, terracing and  planting of slopes subject to  rapid runoff would be required  during new work. Native coast  species of ground cover and  shrubbery would be encouraged.      I  New developments would  need pedestrian access to the  harbour. The building height  limit in the downtown revitalization area would be seven  and a half meters.  In the lower valley area the  height limit would be 10 meters.  Along creeks and the  shoreline, septic disposal  systems involving ground  discharge would be banned. The  acquisition of a substantial area  of Gospel Rock parkland as a  condition of upper plateau  development is a goal.  Along with this, high priority  is set for acquiring Gospel Rock  waterfront and a lookout site on  the rock peak. An unconventional cluster type development  plan would be encouraged.  Site of  theatre to  be tested  The suitability of the proposed Gibsons Landing Theatre site  for construction of a building is  lo be determined by a consulting soil engineer, Gibsons  council unanimously agreed October 26.  Mayor Diane Strom told  council there are concerns about  ihe stability of the proposed site  due to ihe presence there of  natural springs. The site is also  the location of the Town Hall's  well, she said.  Clerk-treasurer I orraine  Goddard said two consulting  firms were asked for estimates  and it appeared the cost would  be in the vicinity of $1,200.  There would be no drilling  necessary for this report.  "It is very important to do  this. We have to know," said  the mayor.

Gibsons Library -  a historical ovorview  by Pun Feichtner  Gibsons Librarian  In order to make a decision  on the future of the library, we  first have to reflect on the past  and the present. The Gibsons  Public Library has been in  operation since the early 1900's.  In 1953 it became an associated library. The funding came  from monies raised by the  library, grants from the Town  of Gibsons and the Regional  District and a book grant from  the provincial government.  In the 1980's many changes  came about. The library started  to grow in leaps and bounds.  Membership, circulation,  reference service and hours of  opening all more than doubled.  Five years ago the coordinating committee of the Sunshine Coast Libraries and  Reading Centers appealed to the  Regional District to better fund  the libraries. This was followed  by one delay after another.  Finally a study was completed. It recommended a coop  erative system. In the same year  the Regional District decreased  funding.  In 1988 with the promise of  going to referendum, their grant  was cancelled. However, the  referendum never came about.  Gibsons Library has always  been run and operated by hard  working, willing and dedicated  volunteers. Over the past few  years it became increasingly evident some paid help was necessary to maintain continuity and  handle some of the ever increasing workload.  In 1985 the Town of Gibsons  increased its funding from  $1,850 to $5,000 and in 1987 to  $8,000. In 1985 we were able to  hire a clerk, Gail Reimer, at $5  an hour, with no benefit  package.  Gail continued to do the  children's librarian's work as a  volunteer. In 1986 her hourly  rate change to $7.  There has been no increase  since that time although her role  is much more than a clerk's. She  r.i.",.;v  Belle Wilson of Silks & Lace was one of the stunning models who  showed the latest fashions at Sunnycrest Mall last Saturday.  ���Kent Sheridan pholo  Questions On  FREE TRADE?

The librarian, Pam Fiechtner,  is a volunteer and has the  recommended training for her  position, the Community Librarians certificate and Advanced Training. She also has a  Business Administration Diploma and extensive experience  in management and supervision.  She gives many hours to the  library and supplies her own office space, typewriter and travel  expenses. Pam also arranged  the first trustees workshop to be  held on the Sunshine Coast. She  worked with our BCLTA representative to have Gibsons  Library host the first Area 4  meeting to be held for the  libraries from Pemberton to  Powell River. Over the past  four years she has also been  responsible for hiring a  'Challenge' student to help out  over the summer months.  With the continuing growth  of the library, the increased  workload at the desk, in shelving and behind the scenes, it is  absolutely essential that we be  open more hours and have more  paid help. Budgets have always  been drawn up with the needs of  the community in mind and the  improvement of library service  but always with what the bot-  tomlime would be for the taxpayer.  The librarian in planning uses  a figure of 8,000 population,  approximately half the Sunshine Coast. It is kept in mind  Roberts Creek supplies reading  service to its district. But the  library service needs are referred  to Gibsons Library.  We have members from Port  Mellon up to Pender Harbour  and the outlying islands. In  planning for staff we know we  need the equivalent of three  people.  It we consider service to the  town of Gibsons, Area E and  Area F only, for a population  total of 6,086 (1986 census), the  request for three staff is not out  of line. Library Services recommends 3.57 staff for a population of 6,000. We also need to  be open 30 hours.  The budget of $54,000 recently presented to the Town of  Gibsons and the Regional  District was, as always, a bare  bones budget. The payroll  figure was based on three people at the bottom step of three  salary ranges, with no benefit  package.  This amount would have enabled us to increase our present  employee's rate, hire a second  person at the clerk level to  relieve the pressure, and a third  person at a junior level to cover  the busiest periods, lunch hours,  holidays and to carry out the extra janitorial duties needed with  the heavy flow of traffic.  The librarian was prepared to  work on a fee-for-service basis  for a set minimum number of  hours to keep costs down and  continue to give volunteer  hours, office space, etc.  There would still have been a  need for our volunteers, but a  great deal of the stress would  have been removed.  Of this $54,000 budget, the  local governments were requested to raise $50,000. This is  $8.21 per capita compared with  the B.C. average of 8.44 The  library would raise the other  $4,000.  However, the local governments refused and came up with  a compromise, providing  referendum passes in the new  year, of $30,000 in 1989,  $40,000 in 1990 and $60,000 in  1991. The Town of Gibsons and  the Regional District, knowing  the commitment and dedication  of those involved with the  library, must surely realize they  have us in an impossible position.

Permanent operation of the  library will be assured once approval of financial support  from Gibsons plus adjacent  municipal areas E and F comes  in a referendum to be held as  soon as possible by the Sunshine  Coast Regional District  (SCRD).  In order to operate in 1989  the library board finds it must  raise $5,770 from public supporters to add to the $30,000  coming from Gibsons and the  SCRD said board chairman  Dowdie.  "We're not pleased, but at  least the library will be kept  open," he said.  The librarian came up with a  very bare bones budget in order  to keep the library from closing.  The board had set $54,000 as  the minimum amount for a satisfactory operation in 1989.  "The best she (librarian Pam  Feichtner) came up with was  above $30,000. It's not  something we can live with permanently," said Dowdie.  "It's just a makeshift thing  for the first year, a bare  minimum of $35,770. We  couldn't reduce that, it would  just be impractical.'  A near disaster  Denise Lagasse demonstrates her concern at the Cenotaph in  Sechelt (see story below). ���VtraOHoH photo  Mother fasts  for peace  by Hal Blaine  Mothers everywhere must  worry terribly about world tensions, the need for world peace,  and the fate of their children.  But a local mother from Halfmoon Bay isn't just worrying,  she's doing something about it.  Starting October 29 she  began a fasting vigil on the steps  of the Sechelt Cenotaph, staying there 17 hours over two days  and fasting on a bowl of rice  and water for 36. She'll be there  every weekend until the federal  election, since it's on weekends  her husband is home to look  after the children.  Denise Lagasse, a member of  the Sunshine Coast Peace  Group, was inspired in her action by seeing a film 'If You  Love This Planet' in which  Helen Caldecott, the physician  for peace, appears. Lagasse is  planning to show another film  on Remembrance Day during a  fast being organized. This film  features Dr. Caldecott speaking  to the Canadian Peace Alliance  at Victoria.  "In rain, or whatever, I'm  fasting every weekend to draw  awareness to this issue," she  says.  The first evening she stayed  out way after dark and was going to stay all night. But then  she decided she'd better not and  went to a friend's house until  morning.  "It was a very interesting experience. 1 learned a lot," she  told the Coast News.

It entered  the top part of the store window, said Gurney, who is also a  director on the Sunshine Coast  Regional District board.  He said he didn't see who lit  the flare because the canopy of  a neighbouring store blocked  his view. But he saw the flare  kicked around in the street, then  picked up and thrown.  Gurney had nothing but  praise for the police on Hallowe'en night. He said they were  doing a good job, patrolling by  every five minutes or so.  He asked town council to see  what can be done about what  happened. He told this newspaper it is his belief some alternative activities must be provided for the area's youth.  There is a major concern for  the security of property. This  incident had less to do with  pranksters and more to do with  running combat, he told council.

In a letter received by the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District Board, the society  states, "...the economic  development officer turned  down our application, citing as  his reason the belief that the  festival benefits only the Village  of Sechelt."  The society needs the grant  money to balance its books so  that it may then apply for future  grants. The letter also points out  the economic benefits the  Festival brings to the entire Sunshine Coast area.  Director Gordon Wilson expressed his support for the  Festival   saying,   "if   I   had  KRYSTYNA GLASS  cHanablown  __jlrx__ by ^an  MASTER CLASSBLOWIR  Jd_nda  Sale starts Tues., Nov. 8  till Fri., Nov. 18/88  From 10 am - 4 pm  Large Selection - Good Prices  Spec/a/ items for Christmas  7981 Southwood Rd., Halfmoon Bay, B.C.  $3,500,1 would give it to them.  We should assist them to ensure  the continuation of the  Festival."  However, not all board  members agreed. "They should  learn to balance their budget  just like everyone else," said  Director Peggy Connor.  In further discussion, it was  noted the society incurred extra  expenses due to the success of  the Festival but had not collected extra revenue.  The board was also informed  there was definitely no money  available to cover the society's  deficit.  "In that case, I recommend  we draft a letter of support  detailing the success of the  Festival which could then be  mailed to the provincial and  federal governments. Perhaps,  this way, future grant money  could be approved without a  balanced budget," said Director  Gordon Wilson  DIRECTOR/COUNSELLOR  ALCOHOL/DRUG  A Director/Counsellor is required for a one counsellor office on the Sunshine  Coast.

RCMP Sergeant Hill said the  comments in council were the  firs! information police had of a  Hallowe'en night war between  factions, or anything like that.  Hill and Buckmaster both  said fireworks are illegal on the  streets or in any public place,  according to town bylaw. They  may only be sold in town during  the week before Hallowe'en to  adults, and may only be lit on  private property by adults.  Gurney said the big problem  arose when the big crowds of  youth gathered in the downtown streets, developing the  kind of mob mentality which  occurs in such circumstances.  Then the very serious matter of  road flares raised its ugly head.  "A hand-held rocket is a  dangerous weapon, and that's  exactly what was happening last  night. We should make them illegal," Mayor Diane Strom told  council.  ^^mm__^____m_1  Sports Jackets Coast News, November 7,1988  Sechelt Seniors  City visit makes one grateful  by Larry Grafton  AU one has to do to completely lose track of what is going on in our little town, is to  spend a week in Vancouver.

Since the long tables were used instead of card tables,' the  paying guests had a good  chance to meet their "next-  door" fellow guests, which was  probably instrumental in promoting conversation and good  fellowship. After all, that's  what our Branch 69 is all about.  Olive Marshall won first  prize, honorable mention etc.  since she was the only one who  arrived in costume. Better start  now, good people, to prepare  your costumes for next year.  NIKKI WEBER CONCERT  Time slips by pretty quickly  and Nikki's fall extravaganza is  sneaking up on us very rapidly.  The date is November 19 at 8  pm in our hall.  This is a reminder to get your  tickets as soon as possible for  this event which is a fundraiser for our new activity centre. Tickets are available from  the usual sources.  RAFFLES  While on the topic of fund  raising, there are two raffles  "on the go" at present and both  will be drawn at our fall bazaar  on November 26. The first is for  a three-piece set of luggage and  a toaster; the second is for a  large plush bear that any  youngster would love to have  for Christmas.  If you miss the big bear, there  will be a second consolation  prize of a small stuffed bear.  ACTIVITY CENTRE MODEL  Len Peace has been putting  his expertise to work and is producing a scale model of our new  activity centre. It is now nearing  completion and will eventually  be on display.  Since it is buill lo scale "the  architect" could use some  figures of men and ladies one  and one half inches high and  some little cars two lo three inches long. Should one of our  members have such items and  be willing to part with them,  Len can be reached at 885-9597.

Something  Rockwood Lodge Society hopes  will become an annual tradition.  At a special ceremony, they  want to light up the gardens of  Rockwood Lodge with  Christmas lights, have music,  supplied by the students of  Chatelech High School and then  have everyone enjoy a hot  chocolate inside the cozy confines of the Lodge itself. Sounds  wonderful, doesn't it.  The thing is, the Society  needs about 100 to 150 strings  of outdoor Christmas lights. So  if any of you have a spare string  or two lying around in the attic  gathering dust, please phone  885-2522 and some one will arrange for pick-up.  BIG FISH!  You don't have to go all the  way to Hawaii to catch a glimpse of a blue marlin. There's one  mounted on the wall in the Deli  on Cowrie Street.  Last January, deli owner Art  Perry caught the 200 pound  nine feet long saphire-blue fish  on a 30 pound test line while  fishing off Maui. The beautiful,  exotic-looking creature is only  on show temporarily at the deli  while Donna and Art finish  building their new home.  ST.

Despite the rain there must  have been at least a hundred  folks there to "ooh" and "aah"  as each colour exploded. After  fireworks, a huge bonfire was  set ablaze while all the wee ones  went inside the hall to pick up  their treats.  Roy Hill did his usual formidable task of selecting the  best   costumes   from   among  some great entries.  SILVER WEDDING  Many friends of Jim and  Katherine Kelly dropped by last  Sunday to wish this fine couple  "All ihe best" on their 25th anniversary. Mary Shannon  presented a special tribute to the  couple with reminiscences of  happy and sorrowful events  throughout their married life.  The gathering joined in a toast  wishing the Kellys many more  years of happiness.  AUXILIARY  A reminder that the regular  monthly meeting of the Halfmoon Bay branch of the  hospital auxiliary will be next  Monday November 14 at  Welcome Beach Hall where  everyone will be welcome.  Starts at 10 am.  RED SIGNS  Folks have been asking at the  Coast News office here in  Sechelt what the red signs with  numbers are on Highway 101 in  West Sechelt. Finally found out  that they are the signs put there  by the local Indian Band as  markers for their recent race  from Ihe Jolly Roger to the  Band grounds. Now we know!  LIGHTS ANYONE?  If you have some spare outdoor Christmas lights lying in a  box somewhere there is a group  who would be delighted to  receive them. Rockwood Lodge  committee is looking for hundreds of lights with which to  light up the gardens of the lodge  during the holidays. Even if  they are in need of repair they  can be made use of.  NEW SCHOOL  Although the School Board  tried a last-ditch attempt to  secure extra money to expand  the gymnasium at the new Halfmoon Bay school, they were unsuccessful and construction will  proceed with the activity room.  However, on a more positive  note, new space allowances  recently announced by the  Ministry will most likely mean  that the school will be eligible  for an expansion within two  years.  THANKS FROM ELSIE  Elsie Julian of Redrooffs  would like everyone to know  how very grateful she is to all  the friends and neighbours who  have been so very kind to both  she and Fred during her recent  illness.

Planner Buchan said two  months ago a taxpayer was  warned away from walking on a  beach by the owner of a  foreshore lease. But he  shouldn't have been.  "Crown leases don't restrict  the public use of the beach (any  land below the high water mark  in the public domaine) as long  as such use doesn't impinge on  the enjoyment of the lease," he  said. Such enjoyment doesn't  include any interference with  pedestrian traffic.  Egmont from 2:30 to 4:30 pm  on Wednesday, November 9.

Coast News, November 7,1988  George    in    Gibsons  Thoughts on Japanese internment  by George Cooper, 8136-8520  Many of us were relieved lo  hear a few month ago that the  amends offered by Ihe federal  government lo Ihe Canadians of  Japanese descent had been accepted by these same Canadian  citizens.  When we heard of what had  been done to them, many of us  in our camps overseas in 1941  were dismayed to find what had  happened here at home was a  copy of tactics used by the  enemy we were preparing to  fight,  Because there were still areas  when compensation for war service had not been dealt with by  the federal government, the  Royal Canadian Legion officially opposed ihe redress offered the Canadians of  Japanese descent.  As well, a contributor to the  Legion magazine Douglas  Fisher sees this harsh treatment  in 1941 and on as 'urgent and  legitimately done' in lhat time  of war.  Fisher says the compensation  and admission of wrong-doing  ignores the circumstances of  1941. Il was a dark time in the  war when victory was nowhere  in sight; family dislocations  because of men in service were  common in all neighbourhoods  across the country.  That is, however, one view of  the matter. Even at Ihe time  many of us in uniform thought  Ihis forced evacuation was unjust and we were uneasy about  it.  Now, years later, we can see  that prejudice of long standing  was really the prime cause of  this harsh action. Otherwise,  why herd women and children  like cattle to prison camps, and  banish them from the coast until 1949, four years afler Ihe  war's end.  Provincial laws had prohibited these citizens from  employment in Crown limber  leases, in mines, and in public  works before Ihe Second World  War. And until the late 1940's  politicians in every level of  government still spoke of them  with animosity.  Not an appropriate thought  al this time of Remembrance?  But what better time to reflect  upon freedom and understanding in our country.

Pity the  voters at  advanced  polls  by Hal Blaine  It will cost close to $200 and  an overnighl trip of about 150  miles for about 200 or so Sunshine Coast residents to vote in  the coming federal election.  Those are the people who for  health or travel reasons want lo  vote before the advance poll.  In recent elections the  distance wasn't so far for these  Sunshine Coast residents  because the constituency returning office was in Powell River.  That was where these extra early  people previously had to vote. It  was only about half as far and  half as costly.  But this time the returning officer Shirley (Sam) Fell is in  Campbell River on Vancouver  Island, two ferry rides and a lol  of highway away from Sechelt  and Gibsons. If you should care  to make that absurd trip to  vote, the voting place is open  (except during the supper hour)  from noon to 9 pm November 7  to 11 and November 16 to 18.  The regular advance poll on  the Sunshine Coast is November  12, 14 and 15 from noon to 8  pm. The location in Sechelt is at  the Municipal Hall next io the  Post Office, and in Gibsons at  the Gibsons United Church, 724  Glassford Road.  There would have been extra-  early polling places for travellers  and the ill this year at Sechelt  and Powell River if Bill C-79  had managed to get through  Parliament before the election,  says returning officer Fell. But  that didn't happen. So we still  have an absurd travel requirement that will prevent most  vacationers and the ill entering  hospital from voting.  has coached juvenile teams.

"Hah!" you  say.  "When 1 draw a stick man it  looks like a deformed spider. If  that's genius, we're in big trouble."  Nevertheless, you are an artist - a three dimensional, multi-  medium creator. With your  thoughts and beliefs, you create  your reality.  The world we live in, the  events and interactions that take  place, are created by each of us.  "Not me," you say. "I have  no part in creating this mess. I  sure haven't any part in creating  a reality of starving children,  violence, murder, pain and  disease, or politicians."  Of couse not. You didn't sit  down at your subconscious  palette and create the misery in  your life or others' lives out of  some perverted curiousity. But  the beliefs that you have, the  thoughts that you have, will  always be confirmed by the  universe.  If you believe spirituality and  material abundance are by  definition mutually exclusive,  and you believe yourself to be a  spiritual being, then you will  find that material abundance  eludes you.  I f you believe the opposite sex  is fundamentally this or that,  you will find everyone you  meet, everything you see, hear  and experience, confirms that  belief.  While Jupiter, the planet that  represents growth and expansion, illumination and bounty,  is retrograde, it is a perfect time  lo explore and alter those beliefs  lhat are causing problems in  your life. Don't start with things  like: hunger in the world, apartheid or acid rain.  Start with something personal, an area of your life that  isn't going the way you want.  Rudolph Nureyev didn't leap  out of his crib and start doinj  pirouettes across the bedroom  floor. Each creative genius has  to begin by learning to use his or  her tools.  Write down a list of your  beliefs about the aspect of your  life that you want to change. If  it's money, write down every  belief that pops into your mind  about money, e.g. money is  power; rich people don't care  about poor people; people with  money have to spend all their  time managing it...dig deep and  continue adding to the list as  thoughts about the issue surface.  Then go to the next layer, e.g.  money is power and 1 don't feel  comfortable with power; 1 care  about poor people; I hate hassling with money and paperwork,  etc.  If necessary, go onto deeper  layers of connected beliefs. As  you explore your belief system,  you'll begin to see which beliefs  are being reinforced by the  universe and keeping you in a  situation you don't like.  As you identify each concept  that is blocking you, mentally  cancel it. Replace it with a  positive affirmation, e.g.  material abundance is a reflection of the spiritual abundance  within me; I attract money with  my positive vibes; because I care  about people, I deserve to have  access to the material abundance in this world.  Whatever area of your life  you choose to work on, make it  a serious project, filling your  mind with positive affirmations  about that subject.  Jupiter goes direct of January  20 and you'll start to see some  positive results if you do the internal work in the meantime.  Once you learn to use the  tools of your psyche, you will  have more control over your  reality instead of being the victim of a belief system implanted  when you were too young to defend yourself.  Millions practice it. Doctors recommend it. It's easy to learn.  Three hundred research studies document the benefits.

Millions were in the offing.  I told myself that what I had  done once  I could do again and again. -  ���Herbert Emerson Wilson  "That is one cold sonofa-  bitching wind!" Patrolman  Powers mutters to himself as he  stamps along the sidewalk  towards the Dunn and Fraser  department store. The wind is  indeed cold at 1:55 am this Friday morning. It hisses insistently from the icy surface of the  Detroit River. Powers, hands  jammed into his greatcoat  pockets, shudders before its  blast. What a way to make a living, he thinks. Sure hope old  Muir's got his coffee pot boiling  at the store. Powers can taste  that coffee already.  He increases his brisk pace  and reaches the black bulk of  the building, his only thought to  get out of the cold for a bit. A  slouch-hatted figure steps suddenly from a pitch-dark doorway. The muzzle of a .38  automatic glints in his hand.  "Hoist 'em, copper," snaps  Lou Wilson, unrecognizable  behind a false beard.  Powers is not fool enough to  irgue.  Lou frisks the cop quickly  nd relieves him of his service  ivolver. "Okay", he says,  'low ring the bell and get your  fend to open up. Tell him  yu've got a pal with you, needs  to>et warm."  'owers does as he is told.  Shrtly the unsuspecting wat-  chran slips the bolts and swings  Iheloor wide. At that precise  morent Herb Wilson, Doc  Reding and Cox materialize  from an adjacent doorway.  Theyenter the building in a  rush, lushing Powers and the  startle watchman ahead of  them. The door slams shut  again, v block away, Dr. de la  Pena aits nervously at the  wheel c a getaway car.  The ebacle of the abortive  dairy aper had instilled  momentry doubt in the minds  of both ou and Cox, but one  minor faiire was not sufficient  cause toibandon the whole  undertakiij. The nitro was  simply mre powerful than  Herb had ;alized.  Quartet  delghts  by RoacNIchofaon  The Austrian String  Quartet started teir first North  American tour vith a performance at the Tilight Theatre  in Gibsons Octo;r 30.  The group, foned in 1985,  includes three ( Australia's  most respected musicians:  William Henntsy, Keith  Crellin, Janis aurs, and  English born omposer,  Douglas Wieland.  The quartet, a mjor part of  the music scene inAustralia,  has gained world-wie recognition through their mutational  tours.  Last week's concenfeatured  Mozart's Quartet in Blat Major, Borodin's StringQuarter  No. 2 and Beethoven String  Quartet in F Major.  It was evident, from te local  concert, why the grob has  gained international ailaim.  Technical excellence, corbined  with a sensitivity to the inl-rent  qualities of the music, reslted  in a deeply satisfying imical  experience.  The appreciative local m-  dience was treated to a bonuof  several encores.  Last week's performance ws  the second in this season's seris  of Countryside Concerts. Th  next event will be Ciacona,  baroque chamber ensemble  November 20.  FOR PRACTICAL  RIAL ISTATE  SELLING ��� BUVING ��� RESIDENTIAL  RECREATIONAL ��� INVESTMENT  ^a..

A little of  the potent explosive obviously  went a long way. The shots  must be accurate to within the  fraction of a gram and there  must be no further margins for  error. He asked for a little more  time to doublecheck his calculations. He had not come this far  along the road to larceny to quit  now.  Lou and Cox, in the meantime, prowled the Detroit area  in search of likely targets. Cox  came up with a mark that  sounded close to ideal: Dunn  and Fraser, a large downtown  department store that did a high  volume of business. Cox cased  the establishment for several  days. "Looks like a piece of  cake," he reported.  To be continued...  Author  to speak  Edith Iglauer Daly, author of  the recent release by Harbour  Publishing, Fishing with John,  will be reading from her book at  the Arts Centre in Sechelt on  Friday, November 18 at 8 pm.  Iglauer, a staff writer for the  New Yorker for many years,  has written three other books,  Inuit Journey, Dennison's Ice  Roads and Seven Stones, the  boigraphy of Arthur Erickson.  Iglauer lives for part of every  year in Garden Bay, spending  the remainder of her time in  New York. She met and married John Daly in 1974, and for  the next four years, until his  death, she accompanied him on  fishing trips up the coast on his  troller, the Morekelp.  Fishing with John is both a  biography of the highly individualistic and sometimes eccentric Daly, and an original  and appreciative description of  fishing and fishermen of the  B.C. coast.

A Fiesta Para Nicaragua on  Saturday, November 26 at the  Roberts Creek Community Hall  will raise funds for hurricane  relief, and provide fun and  entertainment for local  residents.  In an emergency meeting Friday night, the Sunshine Coast  Central American Support  committee planned the benefit  dinner and dance in response to  a global appeal from organizalions including Oxfam, Inter-  Pares, Tools for Peace, the Save  the Children's Fund and CUSO  to help meet the devastation left  by Hurrican Joan in Nicaragua  and Costa Rica on its October  22 rampage through the two  countries.  "A disaster of major proportions has been ignored, and we  want to do something about it,"  says Ken Dalgleish, spokesperson for the committee. Despite  the scope of the tragedy, news  of this hurricane has had little  play in the news media, he says.  Hurricane Joan's death toll at  111 is more than twice the 45  killed by Hurricane Gilbert in  Jamaica in September, says  Dalgleish, and the homeless  count at 300,000 is equivalent,  yet Canada's response and that  of other major Western countries is paltry, compared to what  Jamaica has received.  "Those made homeless by  Hurricane Joan should not be  made victims of international  politics," says Dalgleish. "The  countries are neighbours who  suffered similar damage but are  not getting similar response,"  he adds.  More than 65,000 children  under the age of five have been  left homeless in Nicaragua and  Costa Rica. In Bluefields,  Nicaragua's major Atlantic  town, all of the houses were  destroyed along with ships and  fish processing plants. The only  hospital was seriously damaged,  while 80 per cent of houses in  neighbouring Rama and Nueva  Guinea were lost.  But while Canada's contributions to Jamaican relief totalled  $2.6 million, the U.S. government gave $65 million, the International Monetary Fund $47  plus $82 million in special drawing rights, the Inter-American  Development Bank $100  million, and Britain 550  pounds, the Canadian government has responded with approximately $365,000 for  Nicaragua and Costa Rica, according to the Coalition for Aid  to Nicaragua, one of many  Canadian non-governmental  aid agencies working in the  area.  Salsa Brava, a Vancouver-  based Latin American band,  will provide New York-style  Latin dance music from 8:00 to  12:00 for the fiesta, with a Central American family dinner accompanied by children's entertainment to begin the evening  from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Tickets  will be available at local  bookstores and Seaview Market  in Roberts Creek.

Ten students from all over  the province, as far away as  Alert Bay and Fort St. James  and representing the Sto:lo,  Okanagan, Kwaguitl, Sechelt,  Squamish, Shuswap and Carrier  nations, spent 10 intensive months learning the techniques of  video and television production.  Sponsored by the Canada  Employment and Immigration  Commission, the program gave  students the opportunity to produce videos and television programs and offered intensive  technical training in video  technology, television studio  production, script writing, and  production design. With the  help and guidance of Capilano  College instructors in the Media  Resources program, students  assumed the roles of executive  producer, director, camera  operator, and script writer and  produced a six-part television  program entitled 'Our Culture,  Our Lives', which they donated  to the Chief Dan George Foundation.  In addition, they produced a  series of short videos and slide-  tape productions and did prac-  ticums on the set of The  Beachcombers, with the National Film Board, and with a  feature film production.  Limited funds prevent the  program from continuing, but  the foundation is planning a  series of workshops for bands  to train people in the basics of  video production.

Bright and airy, the new  home of Pronto's was packed to capacity last Saturday, and our  menus were brought by the same cheerful waitress that had served us at the old location.  To begin the meal, we decided to stick to our favourites  -escargot and caeser salad, while the younger member of our  party preferred the green salad that came with his steak and  lasagna.  The delicious aroma of the escargot tucked in mushroom  caps, floating in garlic butter floated up, stirring my appetite and  absorbing my attention. My companions shared the caesar salad  and hot, crispy garlic bread.  In spite of the many customers, our waitress brought our  main courses after only a short rest to fully enjoy the lingering  flavours of the appetizers. Steak and lasagna, souvlaki and snow  crab - the plates arrived piled high.  All conversation ceased as we each entered our own world of  taste and texture. The succulent chunks of beef in the souvlaki  dripped delicious juices onto the rice bed it lay on. The greek  salad provided crisp, cool contrast.  I paused to look up and saw forkfuls of crab meat, dripping  with butter, disappearing rapidly from my partner's plate, to the  sound of appreciative murmurings.  I had thought that the steak and lasagna would be more than  enough food for one young man, but after polishing off the  main course in what appeared to be record time, my young  friend decided to top it all off with lemon cheese cake, the last  piece in the house. We forced him to share a bit with each of us  -a lemony piece of heaven to complete a perfect meal.  There's no question, Pronto's has brought the same fine dining and friendly service to their new location. Check it out for  yourself.

On his first attempt, Bert  Merriman broke the provincial  record for benchpress in the 198  Class. The previous record was  290 pounds which Merriman  shattered with a press of 305  pounds.  In the deadlift competition,  Merriman once again destroyed  the provincial records with a lift  of 480 pounds - the previous  record being 475 pounds.  At the end of the day's competition, Merriman was awarded Best Lifter in a Master's  category.  Meanwhile, friend Danny  Paul was busy capturing second  in his 148 pound class. Paul has  now decided to compete at the  World Competition in Victoria,  November 12.  Both men are hoping to enter  the Canadian Master's competition held in Lethbridge, Alberta  next May. At this time, they are  looking for sponsors to help  make the trip happen.  Merriman resides in West  Sechelt while Paul makes his  home in Gibsons.

With only a few weeks left to  pick up tickets to the first annual Suncoast Breakers Sport-  smens dinner, you had better  get them quick as they are moving briskly.  With the Vancouver Canucks  enjoying an excellent start to  their season, Darcy Rota should  be a tremendous guest speaker  on the head table. Rota assumed his public relations position  after his playing career was cut  short by a serious neck injury.  He retired only three seasons  ago on the advice of doctors,  who warned him that returning  to play may further damage his  neck and spine.  Rota played his junior  hockey with the Edmonton Oil  Kings before being drafted in  the first round by Chicago  Blackhawks. After being traded  to the Canucks, highlights included a trip to the Stanley Cup  finals with Vancouver in 1982,  and personal bests of 42 goals,  39 assists and 81 points in that  year.  Darcy is currently a very active player on the Canuck  "Oldtimers" which play  throughout B.C. for various  charities. We are very fortunate  to have him in Sechelt as his  busy schedule keeps him active  on the banquet circuit where he  is a much sought after and accomplished speaker.  Joining Rota at the head  table are two other tremendous  guests, John McKeachie of  BCTV and former Canuck  goalie Dune Wilson.  While the head table will keep  the evening a light hearted affair, John Revington guarantees  that his smorgasbord will be  worth the price of a ticket  alone.  If that isn't enough incentive  to be at the event, Thursday  November 24, starting at 7 pm,  then the Reverse Draw down to  a $1000 Grand Prize might help  ...while every tenth guest will  receive his $50 ticket price back,  there will also be numerous  sporting prizes that have been  donated by Molsons, Labatt's,  Nabisco Brands and local  business' as well.  All in all it is shaping up to be  a terrific evening of fun and  entertainment.

The  score at the end of the game  wasn't what everybody expected.  The Lighthouse Keepers  defeated the Gibsons team by a  score of 2 to 1.

Community Association In Roberts Creek  Close vote rejects golf in park  by Penny Fuller  A report by the Cliff Gilker  Park Committee to the Roberts  Creek Community Association  was rejected the night of October 26. The report dealt with  the proposed expansion of the  Sunshine Coast Golf and Country Club.  The expansion would entail  the acquisition of 42 acres of  land from the park and a further 47 acres in a provincially  arranged land swap deal with  MacMillan Bloedel.  According to secretary-  treasurer  Jacob Chaban,  six  new members joined the community association at the  meeting. Sources say those new  members were a critical factor  in the vote of 15 to 11 against  accepting the report.  According to the report,  presented by Doug Roy as head  of the committee, Cliff Gilker  Park consists of 149 acres which  was leased to the Sunshine  Coast Regional District in 1977  for 20 years. A year before that,  the Roberts Creek Official Settlement Plan was adopted.  Included in the plan was a  statement that the land west of  the creek provides for high in  tensity use which, "should not  usurp more than 3.75 acres of  land. The park east of the creek  should remain in a natural state  with walking trails to provide  access."  The committee also pointed  out in their report that when expansion was contemplated by  the golf club in 1979, with the  possibility of taking over 45  acres of the park, the concept  was rejected.  The committee recommended  that "the whole question of the  fate of Cliff Gilker Park be rais-  zd to the status of an open  public issue by the Regional  Board, it is not good enough to  be invited to public information  meetings and hearings after the  issue has virtually become a fait  accompli."  When the report was rejected, a recommendation came  from the floor to invite  representatives from the golf  club to come to the next meeting  of the community association  and provide information on  their proposed expansion.  Another person suggested  that environmentalists and  naturalists also be invited to  give their perspective. Both suggestions were passed by the  association.

Gibsons council November 1,  approved a preliminary draft of  a 49 year lease of the land. The  proposal was submitted by  Synetics Management Ltd. of  Vancouver on behalf of a client.  The town about 20 years ago  bought two 20 acre parcels of  land for a sewage treatment  plant site, knowing there would  be surplus land which might be  subdivided and sold. Such a sale  was tried for some time, but  proved to be uneconomic.  So a development lease is being considered, specifically aimed at the senior citizen rental  market. The preliminary prop-  posal is for 84 apartments in  small, one storey clusters.  In addition there would be an  intermediate seniors nursing  care facility into which apartment residents can move as  necessary while still being near  spouses and neighbours in the  apartments.  There is said to be a recognized need for such seniors accommodations in the community.  At question in council was  the basis of the annual lease fee  to be agreed upon. The alternatives were a seven percent fee  based on an independent land  appraisal, arbitrated if  necessary, or a current bank  rate plus two percent fee based  on assessed value.  Council at the meeting favoured an independent appraisal.  The letter of intent to lease  was approved for return to  Synetics Management as they  requested. It provides for the  rights to option to lease for two  six month periods at $500 each,  The sky's the limit  Star-gazers forming club  Two local astronomers,  Merle Gerbrandt and Neil Sandy, are looking for people interested in joining a astronomy  club. No experience is necessary  to join, just an interest in learning more about the night sky.  Organizer Merle Gerbrandt,  who recently settled on the  Coast, was past president and  founder of the Abbotsford  Astronomical Society and brings with him a wealth of  astronomy related experience.  Gerbrandt comments that the  sky here on the Sunshine Coast  is one of the best on the lower  mainland.  TERMINAL  Forest Products Ltd.

Sandy also said that owning a  telescope is not necessary and  that for anyone interested  telescopes can be built easily  and inexpensively through the  club.  Gerbrandt noted that not all  astronomical pursuits require  the use of a telescope, as a matter of fact there are lots of so-  called armchair astronomers  who have never even used a  scope.  Some of the outdoor activities planned by the club are  the observations of the planets,  other galaxies, Nebula, comets,  meteor showers and eclipses.  Meeting activities could include slide presentations as well  as information seminars on  astrophotography and telescope  making.  Sandy sums up by saying  "Astronomy is a multi-faceted  subject, there is something of  interest there for everyone or as  we astronomers say, "The sky is  the Limit".

The spring bedding plants  such as wallflowers, forget-me-  nots, poyanthus and double  daisies should be planted where  they are to flower, perhaps leaving room for a drift of tulip  bulbs, it's very effective.  If you have poorly fruiting  trees, it's a good idea to decide  on possible new varieties.  Choice of top fruit for this  area should be carefully made,  as it will last for twenty five  years on an average.  The ground can be prepared  for the new fruit trees, as it is  for shrubs. Apple and pears can  be grown on dwarfing stocks to  produce trees 12 to 15 feet high,  or they can be grown in  restricted forms as cordons,  pyramids or espaliers.  Peaches do well as fans on  sunny south or west walls. If  plum trees have not been  fruiting, dig a trench around the  tree four feet from the trunk  and sever the roots.  GIBSONS  LANES  886-2086  and then to enter a 49 year  lease.  The town would retain  ownership of the land and  would take it over again after  the 49 years but Synetics is asking for the right to renew the  lease for a further 50 years.  The existing Inglis Trail  would be relocated. Further  details of the lease agreement  will have to be negotiated if the  proposal goes ahead beyond the  site planning and financial arrangements stage.  Keep part of the dollars you spend..  SHOP LOCALLY  SCHOOL DISTRICT NO. 46 (SUNSHINE COAST)  requests your input on  the recommendations of the  ROYAL COMMISSION  ON EDUCATION  PUBLIC REACTION:  School District No. 46 is sponsoring a number of meetings to gather reaction  from parents and the public to the recent Sullivan Report on Education. This  reaction will be passed on to the Minister of Education for use in drafting  legislation.  A sample of the recommendations made by the Sullivan Commission, and  the dates of the meetings are outlined below.  SUMMARY OF RECOMENDATIONS  CURRICULUM  (Chapter 5)  1. That developmental criteria, rather than  chronological age, be used in selecting the  educational placement of children entering  school, (p.93)  3. That the Ministry of Education develop a  Common Curriculum for all students in  Grades 1 to 10. Further, that the Common  Curriculum include the following four  categories of subject matter:  (1) Humanities (English, Social Studies, French  as a Second Language);  (2) Fine Arts (Music, Visual Arts, Theatre,  Dance);  (3) Sciences (Mathematics, General Science,  Technology); and  (4) Practical Arts (Physical Education, Indust-  trial Education, Home Economics, Lifespan  Education), ip.95)  4. That throughout the years of the Common  Curriculum from Grades 1 to 10:  (1) teachers use an interdisciplinary approach  in their teaching;  (2) teachers instruct in a minimum of two different subject areas and work in interdisciplinary teams, at any given grade level;  (3) the Ministry of Education develop and  distribute curriculum documents which provide examples of interdisciplinary relationships and articulation among subjects, and  between course content and the life experiences of learners;  6. That the Ministry of Education limit its  prescription for the common Curriculum of  Grades 1 to 10 to no more than 80% of the  available instructional time. Further, that  school districts provide locally developed programs for the remaining school lime. (p. 101)  7, That the Ministry of Education award each  learner who has successfully completed the  Common Curriculum for Grades 1 to 10 an official certificate of entitlement to a further two  years of secondary education. Further, that  eligibility for the certificate be determined by  the local school on the basis of criteria  established by the Ministry of Education.  (p. 102)  TEACHING  (Chapter 6)  1. That the Ministry of Education, in  cooperation with the major educational  organizations of the province, initiate and  maintain a program designed to raise the  status of teaching as a career, (p. 126)  12. That special measures be taken to improve the vailability of professional development programs in rural areas of the province,  including consideration of summer study bursaries, travel grants, increased funding for professional libraries, support for university inser-  vice activities in remote areas, and the  establishment of regional professional  development centres, (p. 138)  FINANCE  (Chapter 7)  1. That the use of property taxation for  school purposes be continued, (p. 157)  3. That no drastic changes in the principles  and procedures underlying the Homeowner  Grant are required at this time. Further, that a  mechanism be found to return the unused  portion of individual grants to the school  districts, (p. 166)  9. That, in establishing the ratio of sharing  school costs between the province and school  districts, the provincial government continue  to recognize distinct local revenue-raising  capacities. Further, that the principle of equity  of tax burden be retained, (p. 177)  SUPPORT SYSTEMS  (Chapter 8)  3.

In Sechelt  Koch vs. Meredith  BUD KOCH  Mayor Bud Koch announced  recently that he has decided to  run for re-election. "There are  so many projects that I am involved in and I would like to  stay and see these completed,"  said the mayor of the District of  Sechelt.  Mayor Koch was elected by  acclamation to Ms position in  June 1986. He is married with a  grown  family and  presently  owns Sunshine GM in Sechelt.  "I believe I have a number of  good ideas for this area such as  the Sechelt Canal Parkway, the  golf course and the development of Block 7," said Mayor  Koch who is a long-time resident of the Sunshine Coast.  "However, it is what the people want that really counts with  me. If they decide they don't  want the canal for example then  we won't do it," he added.  "I am pleased with some of  the things I have accomplished  in my term such as the purchase  of Rockwood Lodge for the use  of the community. But, there  are still a number of outstanding projects I would like to  stay involved with," said Mayor  Koch.  "I believe I can provide  strong direction for this community and I would love to see  tourism promoted all the time,  not just during slow growth  periods," said Sechelt's mayor.  The mayor was quick to  point out that he is an advocate  of controlled growth and that  none of his council is in favour  of industrialization of the area.

"I also believe there is too  much political interference in  the administration and operation of district affairs. The  district must be put on a proper  businesslike basis, with no hidden agendas," Meredith said in  a recent interview.  "My motto is 'democratic  not autocratic' and I feel my  background proves that I practice what I preach," he added.  Meredith was born in Vancouver and is married with two  grown sons and two grandchildren. He holds a degree in  commerce and worked for over  24 years in the investment  securities business. At the height  of his career, he became vice-  president of Midland-Oster  Securities and took over the  management of 17 branches.  More recently, he served as  the executive director for the  Vancouver Neurological Centre  for a period of nine years.  "I feel my greatest accomplishment at the centre was  preventing a volunteer board  from interfering with the day-  to-day running of the hospital,"  says Meredith.  After moving to the Sunshine  Coast over seven years ago,  Meredith joined the Sechelt  hospital board and has served as  chairman for the last three  years.  "I believe I am a real team  player which is what this district  needs," he says.  Meredith also says he is  hyper-critical of committee  structure and feels that proper  terms of reference should exist  for council. He says the terms  of reference used now were  never approved.  "I have a strong background  in management including serving on the faculty of the Banff  School of Advanced Management for five years. I am sure  this experience would prove an  asset to my abilities as a  mayor," said Meredith.  "Recently, I attended the annual convention of B.C.  Municipalities and participated  in as many workshops as I  could. I will always have a  policy of 'doing my  homework'," he stressed.  Member of  ALLIED...

Coast News, November 7,1988  Invited here  Team evaluates special education  A team of educational ex-  i perts has spent the last week on  'the Sunshine Coast gathering  data for an evaluation of the  Special Education Program in  School District 46.  Local teacher Colleen Elson,  who was recently appointed to  the new position of Director of  Special Education for this  district, invited the team to  make recommendations on the  existing program. They will  comment on aspects that are  working well, make recommen  dations for improvement and  suggest guidelines for further  development.  Team members are Chairperson Joanne Regush from Mission, Lauchlin Mawhinney  from Courtenay and Tom Watson from Qualicum.  During their stay on the  Coast the team has visited all  twelve schools in the district and  talked to principals, teachers,  aides, childcare workers and  parents. They also had a  meeting with Ben Pierre of the  Sechelt Indian Band and  discussed his concerns for native  students.  The team will be looking at  all aspects of the Special Education Program; gifted students,  native students, students with  learning disabilities, children  with multiple physical handicaps, the trainable mentally  handicapped, students who  have English as a second  language, the learning  assistance program, the  study/work experience program  and students who are visual or  hearing impaired or home or  hospital bound.  Asked whether they would be  looking at the problems of sexual abuse and drug and alcohol  abuse, team members explained  lhat these problems are integrated in to the counselling  and family guidance programs.  The first draft of the report is  expected to be in the hands of  the School Board in about a  month.

Anyone wishing  Police news this week  GIBSONS RCMP  ��� Police records show the  pumber of no charge liquor  seizures in recent months have  been: August 30, September 19  and October 8.  Among the reasons for these  seizures is the one of minor in  possession.  Impaired driving charges in  September were four, in October three.  A Hopkins resdent reported  to the Coast News that his car  was damaged by a thrown rock  as he drove through Lower Gib  sons while a crowd of youths  milled about on Hallowe'en.  SECHELT RCMP  Sechelt RCMP are investigating irregularities in the  operation of the business  known as Trash n' Treasure in  Halfmoon Bay.  Those persons who had property on consignment sale and  have receipts issued by the store  operators are asked to contact  Constable R. Spenard.  Persons enquiring are asked  to quote file number 88-3197.  Gibsons Auxiliary  Now that the Sunshine  Coast's new Totem Lodge in  Sechelt is open, the hospital  auxiliaries on the coast have  committed themselves to raising  funds to furnish the lodge with  literally hundreds of items  which the provincial government never even thinks about.  For instance, only recently,  these auxiliaries raised over  $100,000 to purchase the latest  electric beds. As part of this ongoing drive to equip Totem  Lodge, and at the same time  maintain its commitment to St.  Mary's Hospital, the ladies of  the Gibsons branch held a Fall  Fiesta in the Anglican Church  Hall.  These ladies spent months  preparing for this event ��� collecting, preparing arts and  crafts for this worthy cause.  Judging from all the comments,  it was a great success.  The good merchants of Gibsons came through with all  kinds of support and assistance  and the auxiliary would like to  thank them, one and all:  All Occasion Flowers,  Chamberlin Gardens, Dockside  Pharmacy, Gibsons Building  Supplies, The Knit Wit, Ken's  Lucky Dollar, Richards, The  Gallery, Wishful Thinking and  Showpiece Frames  tfEHiLiiL  '%*  -I ii.il  iilai.a    ::;��  iii|Ji!kit^Ma.-i&luMI i  . ,.i..*_yjyi*___,��ii.iu  ���m%__..w3_\muu-mm-  ._.. k____.  i >,.���. *  Guess Where  The usual prize of $5 will be awarded the first correct entry drawn  which locates the above.

We realize it would create a  dreadful hardship and a loss for  many. It would certainly pain  those of us who have given so  much to make the library what  it is today.  In going over the planning  and the budget once again there  are many things that cannot be  changed:  1. Our operating budget cannot  be cut any more.  2. We have to have more paid  staff.  3. Staff have to have reasonable  levels of pay.  4. We have to be open more  hours.  Therefore, each one of us  must better support the library  and make our own appropriate  contribution.  A. We will hire only one more  paid person.  B. The librarian will continue as  a volunteer.  C. The community must commit itself to assisting the board  in raising $5,770 needed  towards the operating budget.  D. The local governments must  be better informed and not be  under any illusion that they will  be funding the library adequately at 4.93 per capita.  Those of us that know libraries are for everyone of all ages  and who realize libraries help  meet the need for leisure,  recreation, art, culture, education and literacy in the community, will therefore, do our  best to keep the library open.  The Board of Directors  of the Gibsons Landing  Theatre Project are  pleased to announce  .good progress on our  theatre project and  invite you to attend the  ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING  Wed., Nov. 9th  7:30 pm  Marine Room (under Gibsons Library)  For general or membership information,  please call 886-8778  [fficieiiWectric Plus Heating  Enjoy modern electric heat  and save up to 50% on fuel costs  Electric Plus is clean, quiet,  versatile and 100% efficient  Electric Plus gives you all the advantages of modern,  energy-efficient electric heat at a saving  of up to 50% on fuel costs if you now  use oil or propane. Your Electric Plus  heating system is clean and convenient, quiet and 100% efficient. You can  choose from a variety of ways to heat  electrically with Electric Plus, while  having oil, propane, butane, wood or  coal as a back-up heating system.  You can get Electric Plus  at a special low rate.  Electric Plus is offered at the special  low rate of 2.50 per kilowatt-hour  (about half the regular cost) because  it is surplus energy. When no  surplus is available, Electric Plus  is interrupted and you switch to  your back-up system. We expect  interruptions to be infrequent but  when one does occur it will likely last  throughout an entire heating season.  IK)  pROyDOfOUR  Convenient Hydro financing is  available at only 8Mo.  For most homes, the entire cost of converting to  dual-fuel Electric Plus can be covered by  B.C. Hydro financing. It's available on approved  credit at only 816%. Contractors can arrange  financing, which can be conveniently repaid  on Hydro bills over periods up to four years.  And once the cost of your installation is paid  back, your savings continue year after year.  Find out more about how to  save with Electric Plus.  Your home is probably eligible for Electric  Plus, unless it already has natural gas service.  If you now heat with oil or propane, Electric  Plus could save you $200 to $450 a year on  space heating, and another $110 to $130 on  water heating if you add it there too.  Heating equipment costs vary with  individual homes and wiring systems,  so see a contractor for specific  recommendations and prices. Or ask  your local Hydro office for our  Electric Plus pamphlet.  Electric Plus  Authorized  B.C.

Letters to the Editor  Morgan grateful  for banquet  A golfer's view of Cliff Gilker Park  Editor:  For the past few weeks, we  have read articles such as  "Mary Anne's Viewpoint" concerning Cliff Gilker Park and  the fact that the Sunshine Coast  Golf and Country Club (golf  course) wants as much as 45  acres of Cliff Gilker Park. 1 feel  it is time for readers to hear  from a golfer, and clear up  some misconceptions regarding  the park and the land we are  trying to obtain.  First of all, 75 acres of what is  now Cliff Gilker Park, was  originally sought after by the  golf course before it ever was  Cliff Gilker Park. The Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRD)  said they would try to obtain the  land we desired as well as an additional 85 acres they wanted  for parks and recreation use.  Keeping in mind that the golf  course would get the 75 acres  they originally wanted when  they could afford to build a second nine holes they so  desperately needed.  Secondly; we are now trying  to acquire 40 acres from the top  portion of Cliff Gilker Park,  not 75 acres that we first intended to obtain more than 10 years  ago.  Let's now look at Mary  Anne's viewpoint. She states  that "Cliff Gilker Park is being  whittled away by minority interests". Rather, it would be put  to use far more extensively than  it is now as a nature park.  50,000 rounds of golf have been  played so far this year, and  countless locals and tourists  were turned away this summer,  due to overcrowding. That's using recreational land extensively. If we got the 40 acres we  need, we would be able to play  far more than 50,000 rounds of  golf and not turn away nearly as  many locals and tourists.  She then speaks of "the aficionados of one recreation encroaching   on   another".   It  would seem to me that the ball  park and proposed soccer fields  are encroaching on both the  golf course and nature park,  both being quiet leisure exercise  for all ages and activities which  the Coast is already lacking in.  The cost of the sport is  something that comes with having paid employees - which is  something we would need more  of if we became an 18 hole  course. Still, it only costs about  a dollar a day to be a member.  From what I have read, I  presume it is true that the ball  park has taken part of the trails,  without making an alternative  route. 1 see this as poor planning and self-centered thinking.  The plans are to extend the golf  course and build trails all  around the new 9 holes, creating  more trails than now exist.  If we don't get the land, we  will be forced to become a  private club. If we get the land,  being open to the public would  be a condition in the lease from  the SCRD. Let's remember  Cliff Gilker Park is zoned as a  recreational   park,   not   a  wilderness park. We should use  the land to its fullest extent.  That is why a ball park was  allowed to be built there.  We, the members of the golf  course, have been patiently  negotiating for this land for  several years now, while it took  the organizers of the ball park  less than a year to come to terms  with the SCRD. It's time  members of the golf course  spoke out and let Stan Dixon  and the SCRD Board know  how we feel.  Mike Mannion  Editor,  May I through your paper  say thanks to everyone who  made my 'Good Citizen of the  Year' banquet a success.  Many people helped make it  a wonderful and fun night, a  night I and my wife will  remember fondly.

VON 3A0  Dear Board Members:  Re: Cliff Gilker Park vis-a-vis  Sunshine Coast Golf and Country Club  This letter is from a number  of people who think of  themselves as: Friends of Cliff  Gilker Park.  We have prepared the follow-  ing statement for public  dissemination.  Our basic philosophy is expressed in Section 5.5.2.1 of the  Roberts Creek Official Settlement Plan which reads:  "Cliff Gilker Park should be  developed for a variety of uses.  Provision should be made for  high intensity use west of the  creek. The layout of the park in  this area should be planned to  accommodate a variety of  organized activities such as  baseball, lacross, etc., but these  active recreational uses should  not usurp more than 1.0 to 1.5  hectares (2.5 to 3.75 acres) of  land. The park east of the creek  should remain in a natural state  with walking trails to provide  access."  preserve Cliff  Gilker Park in a natural state as  defined in the plan.  It is a unique wilderness park,  centrally located, affordable  and readily accessible. Such an  environment is irreplaceable  and impossible to duplicate  -now or in the future.  We place inestimable value  on this regional resource. If the  north 42 acres is cleared and  landscaped the entire character  of the park will be destroyed.  The Friends of Cliff Gilker  Park are concerned by the appearance of evidence which  seems to indicate that negotia  tions or quasi negotiations have  been in progress for some time;  yet no clear public information  has been made available.  We believe that now is the  time to involve the public. This  is essential before tentative arrangements are contemplated.  Our position is that the SCRD  should acquire title to this land  and dedicate it as park.  We encourage those who  share our view to communicate  directly with the Sunshine Coast  Regional District, Box 800,  Sechelt, B.C. VON 3A0.  Don Griffiths  ������ meiejiik^ie ���������".

VON 2H0  Dated October 11. 1988  Editor:  The response to my recent letter on the so-called Free Trade  Agreement was gratifying and I  wanted to thank you for  publishing it.  I am under the impression  that a substantial number of  your readers are vitally concerned with this subject and 1 think  it would be worthwhile informing them that a very good book  on the subject left the publishers  on October 28 and should be  available in our local book  shops very soon. This book has  been written by Marjorie  Bowker of Edmonton. She is a  retired judge of the family court  Lack of  courage  Editor:  I notice there is a reluctance by you, and the 'other  paper' to give readers full, objective, and investigative reporting on controversial major issues  such as the canal, the Sechelt (Kinnickinick) golf  course, and so on.  This apparent suppression of critical opinion  could be interpreted by a concerned public as fear of  upsetting the powers that control your advertising  dollar.  Your image would be improved, and the community better served if you both demonstrated more  courage to present all the facts.  Barrie Redman  Ratepayers  write  Editor's Note: A copy of the following letter was  received for publication.  Dear Mr. Koch and Members:  On behalf of Sandy Hook Property Owners'  Association I want to thank you for the opportunity  to attend the October 19 Council meeting and the  October 26 Planning Committee meeting to express  our concerns about the current and potential use of  the newly constructed Aquarius dock and pier  located between Tuwanek and Sandy Hook.  We were surprised that the Council members were  not fully aware of the ongoing docking, loading and  unloading activities. While we were pleased that you  recognized our efforts to monitor these activities, we  must point out our limited resources as a community  association make it impossible for us to adequately  undertake this 'watch dog' function. It seems this is  properly the responsibility of the municipality.  The improper use of the Aquarius facility having  been brought to your attention, we trust you will  now firmly enforce the municipal bylaw with this  property owner as you would with any other.  We understand that the proposed meeting between members of council and representatives of  Aquarius took place on November 1, 1988. It is  hoped that the outcome of this meeting will not in  any way delay your action to enforce the zoning or  allow any possibility for this property owner once  again to ignore municipal enforcement orders.  At the Planning Committee meeting comments  were made by the mayor and other Council members  that Sechelt Inlet should be maintained as an area  devoted to recreation, tourism and parks. A report  to this effect is appearing in the local press.  This is a markedly different approach from the  previous support for the continued industrialization  of the inlet, e.g. additional fish farms, fuel storage,  manufacture of fish fertilizer, and rezoning for industrial purposes. We look forward to the new proposal being implemented at the earliest possible time  while existing bylaws continue to be enforced.  We are interested in receiving information about  the effect of the new proposal on the consideration  of a canal. Our association has serious concerns  about the negative environmental, economic, and  social impact of a canal on the community of Sechelt  as well as on the inlet.  As concerned citizens, we are most eager to participate in the municipality's planning procedures.  Joyce FitzPatrick  in Alberta who is non-partisan  in terms of political affiliation.

The current proposal is far  more sweeping in concept since  it involves not just trade, but  also natural resource commitments and business and  financial services.  Harold G.

These questions joined the  usual ones about the major  campaign issues of nuclear-  powered submarines, free trade  and the environment.  Incumbent local MP Ray  Skelly of the New Democrats  proposed the idea of establishing a Sechell Inlet Authority to  cope with fish farm pollution  problems. Progressive Conservative challenger Michel Rabu  told the meeting federal  Fisheries Minister Tom Siddon  has come to favour establishment of a separate West Coast  fisheries ministry so the needs of  this area can be looked after  better.  PC Candidate Rabu said he  supports fish farms for  economic reasons but supports  controls for environmental  reasons. "We need the jobs, but  we must have the protection,"  he said.  The NDP's Skelly said the  federal government has absolutely refused to exercise its  controls over fish farms.  On the question of aboriginal  land claims, Skelly said there  has been a real betrayal by the  present federal government  toward thesd claims. The  federal government can move  ahead on certain areas of this  issue and shouldn't be claiming  the whole matter is the responsibility of the British Columbia  government.  Dr. John Krell, Christian  Heritage Party candidate, said  his party acknowledges native  land claims have not been  recognized thus far in Canada  and should be.  Alan Warnke, Liberal Party  candidate, said his party  believes the settlement of native  land claims issues can help protect Canadian sovereignty in the  Arctic. The Liberals also completely endorse self-government  for natives, he said.  Meeting moderator Bill McKinnon allowed citizens present  to ask one minute questions  directed at any of the candidates.  Each candidate questioned  could answer for two minutes.  Each other candidate had one  minute to remark on each question, if he so desired.  On a question about the national deficit, Skelly said the  present PC government is both  the luckiest and most imcompe-  tent in the history of Canada.  Lucky because it landed in office at a time when interest rates  fell and a long period of prosperity began. Then it claimed  all the credit, he said.  MICHEL RABU  Rabu argued it is good  government that lowered interest rates and brought prosperity, citing the recent climb  in interest  rates,  fall of the  Only one school board  seat to be contested  Two of the three vacant seats  on the School Board have been  ! filled by acclamation.

LENORAJOE  Lenora Joe is a Councillor on  the Sechelt Indian Band  Government District, was born  and has lh'ed all her life in  Sechelt. She says that one of her  main concerns will be to find  out why so many students who  graduate are not qualified to go  on to post secondary institutions. She is also concerned  about the lack of recreation  facilities for young people.  Asked for her opinion on taxation, Joe said, "Students need  technical knowledge today. If  it's going to cost us more to give  them a good education, I'm in  favour."  Joe also said that although  she would do as much as she  could to assist native students in  the district, her main concern  would be to see that all students  get the best education possible.

Asked for her opinion on  French Immersion, Bittroff said  that in their twelve year experience with the program,  Delta had run into some problems. They found that it was  difficult to get qualified  teachers. Teachers from  Quebec, although fluent in the  language, often do not have  B.C. qualifications.  It was also discovered that the  program was not good for the  students academically, particularly in the sciences.  Students tended to drop out in  the later grades so there were  not enough to carry on the program. "Parents" said Bittroff,  should be well aware of these  factors and consider what they  are willing to give up and what  the pay-off will be." She also  pointed out that French Immersion affects the English program by splitting the school's  resources.  Questioned on taxation, Bittroff stressed that students  should be job-ready when they  graduate. "If they aren't able to  work, taxes will be worse for  that reason." "But" she said,  "we have to keep the money at  the class room level, not build  bureaucratic castles. Taxes  should be spent wisely and  justified by achievement. I'm  quite happy to be called on  that."  "One of my goals" continued Bittroff, "would be to  work with Capilano College to  get a first year college course  here. If no one expresses a need,  it won't happen."  Bittroff went on to say that  one of her priorities would be  road safety. "There are no  signs, no school walks. I'm appalled that students should have  to put up their own safety  signs."  lr  For all your  Satellite Needs  Call MOONHAKER  ELECTRONICS!  883-8109  Canadian dollar and drop in the  stock market when polls indicated a rise in Liberal Party  fortunes and a lowering of the  popularity of the Progressive  Conservatives.  Asked why the PCs are shutting down rural post offices and  laying off the rural people  responsible for this valuable service, Rabu said to achieve fiscal  responsibility this government  eliminated 50,000 unnecessary  or inefficient civil service jobs.  "I agree with doing what is  efficient and responsible. If that  means the post office, then so  be it," said Rabu.  Warnke said the Liberal Party believes in restoring postal  services in rural areas.  Skelly said.Rabu is sitting in  Campbell River doing business  and using "the services of a  great big post office, quite content that rural and remote people should do without.  "He doesn't recognize their  right to have the use of expensive services, too," said Skelly.  Rabu replied in his summation at the end of the meeting  that he lives in a rural area and  is quite content to collect his  mail from a 'super' mailbox.  In his opening remarks Skelly  attacked the nuclear-powered  submarine proposal as a PC  thing the NDP opposes. He attacked free trade as something  that will shut down U.S. branch  plants in Canada and wipe out  jobs.  Canada would be forced by  competition to follow lower  U.S. standards and to cut social  programs. He urged listeners to  vote NDP because his party will  never implement the free trade  agreement.  Warnke said there are sections in the free trade agreement  that are totally devastating to  Canada, in agriculture and  energy for example. Free trade  also has severe implications to  national sovereignty, he said.  The proposed submarine  policy also had profound implications and the subs simply  won't do the job. The proposed  federal sales tax was a threat,  while government leadership  was a thing of contradiction and  confusion, said the Liberal  hopeful.  Rabu said Skelly as local MP  failed "both you and I by failing the opportunity to contribute economically to the local  area." He said both the NDP  and the Grits in the campaign  have resorted to fear monger-  ing, distortion and lies.  "They have lied to the Canadian people," he said, adding  that Skelly and the NDP propose Edsel type submarines  while the PCs plan 21st century  nuclear-powered vessels.  Skelly that night backed away  from the use of the word 'lie' in  the campaign. All the candidates were arguing their  points of view honestly and  nobody was lying, he said.  -rr     -1     ~��r      Jl-- -"^   -" Qq  FALL SALE  Evergreen Landscaping in cooperation with  B&B Farms offer for NOVEMBER ONLY  $AVE ON TIRES  Major manufacturer's premium 4S Steel  Belted All Season Radial Whitewall  Deep 11/32" tread depth (Vs usual 9/32")  Backed by Goodyear  P175/70R-13  P185/70R-13  $ 94.65  $102.20  WALTS  PRICE  ���59.95  '61.95  Installed, balanced, &  FREE ROTATION FOR LIFE OF TIRE  WALT'S  Automotive  Hwy. 101, Gibsons  886-9500 |  SECHELT FURNITURE LAND will  OPEN ON WED., NOV. 9  We are not completely  set up but  WE ARE OPENING EARLY  FOR YOUR BENEFIT.
