 '���>A.I*��1./M H !���. ll-fKAKl  Parliament Buildings  Vieloria, B.C. V8V 1X4  COAST^NEWS  50 cents per copy on newsstands  ESTABLISHED    1945  January 11,1993 Volume 47 Issue 2  Coast property values soar to new heights  by Jane Seyd  Real estate on the Sunshine Coast is  booming.  But that message has been received  with mixed feelings by property owners  this week as assessment notices arrived  in the mail.  Assessed values on the Coast are up  - way up. For acreage in Roberts  Creek, values have jumped between 90  and 95 percent, while acreage values in  Halfmoon Bay more than doubled in  some cases.  Average increases to residential  property values on the Sunshine Coast  range from 30 to 65 per cent over the  Forestry  guidelines  audit  underway  by Jane Seyd  Fieldwork for an audit of 15  eutblocks in the Sunshine  Coast and Squamish forest  regions has been completed by  a contractor hired to look into  compliance with the province's  fish/forestry guidelines.  And while preliminary  assessments of those blocks -  mostly near Powell River and  Squamish - are expected soon  by bolh the Ministry of Forests  and logging company officials,  an audit of an additional 10 to  1.5 eutblocks on the Sechell .  Peninsula is scheduled when  enough snow has melted.  Plans to complete the project - started by Northwest  Hydraulics at the end of  November - were temporarily  put on hold after snow made il  impossible for auditors to continue examining the eutblocks.  "There were quite a few thai  were 1000 metres or more in  elevation," says Rick Biller of  the local Forest Service, "so  there'll be snow for quite a  while."  When completed, the Sunshine Coast audit will include  samples of eutblocks from all  area logging operations.  The Sunshine Coast is one  several forest regions, including the Queen Charlotte  Islands, the North Coast and  Squamish, which are in the first  phase of an expanded audit of  the fish/forestry guidelines.  The guidelines set out forest  practices to be followed around  several categories of streams,  which may affect fish habitats.  An initial audit of 21 cut-  blocks on Vancouver Island  last summer showed logging  companies had failed to adequately follow the guidelines in  all cases.  About 6,000 eutblocks have  been logged on the BC coast  since 1988, when the guidelines were first established. An  audit is planned for a total of  aboul five per cent of those, or  about 290 eutblocks, says Mike  Brownlee of integrated  resources in the Ministry of  Forests.  Several new measures are  also being brought in as a result  of the Vancouver Island audit.  These include training programs for loggers on forest  practices which will belter protect fish habitats and more full-  time fisheries officers in Ihe  south coast region to specifically deal with habitat protection.  Practices currently set out in  the guidelines will also be  incorporated in a new forest  practices code, which will have  more authority when it comes  lo enforcement. "As long as  they were jusl guidelines, Ihey  didn't really have the force of  law," says Brownlee.  None of the companies  involved in Ihe Vancouver  Island audit will be charged  under the Fisheries Act.  Boom attributed to growth in commuter, retiree numbers  last two-year period. Homes in Halfmoon Bay and Robeits Creek come in  at the top end of that scale, while property in Sechelt increased the least in  value.  In most areas, values of acreage and  waterfront properties increased at a significantly higher rate than more average  homes.  Values of undeveloped land - the  fastest increasing category of property -  have also doubled in some cases, says  area assessor Calvin Smythe.  Meanwhile, most commercial properties in both Gibsons and Sechelt show  values increased by about 25 to 30 per  cent, says Smythe, although there are  some which have doubled.  All this in a place which not-so-long  ago most Vancouverites couldn't locate  on a map to save their faces? Well as  the census figures already show, that  situation is rapidly changing.  Smythe says property values on the  Sunshine Coast are some of the fastest  rising in the province. "It's been a very  desirable area for the past two years and  the assessments simply follow that," he  comments. "It's quite a booming market."  Smythe attributes the boom to several elements, including increasing numbers of commuters, recreational proper  ty owners and a growing influx of  retirees: "All the areas where retirees  have settled have had some pretty good  increases in values." In comparison,  values in the Lower Mainland increased  an average of 20 to 35 percent  By now, most property owners will  have their assessments. Says Smythe,  "We've had quite a few calls." Assessors will be available to answer local  enquiries this week from Tuesday to  Thursday, 8 am to 4:30 pm at the government agent's office in Sechelt.  Appeals are also possible, and must he  filed by Feb. 1.  turn to page 3  Coast News sold in deal  with Whistler Publishing  An observant reader of Ihe  Coast News will notice a subtle  change in this second issue of  1993.  The masthead which graces  the bottom of Page 4 contains  an alteration in wording to  reflect a change in ownership  that came into effect Wednesday Jan. 6.  The Coast News and Coasl  News Weekender are now  owned by Whistler Printing and  Publishing Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of Westmount Press,  which owns 10 newspapers in  BC and Alberta.  The sale brings to an end 16  years of ownership by a small  group of Glassford Press share-  , holders hfNM by John Burnside, who was both publisher  and editor of the paper for 10  years. "I have no plans, lots of  options," said Burnside, who  will continue to write his Musings column for the Coast News  and Coast News Weekender.  Westmount president Bob  Doull said the sale resulted from  discussions and negotiations  over much of the past year. "It's  clearly the dominant paper on  the Coast and the best quality,"  said Doull.  "What attracted us to the  Coast News is that it is a writers' newspaper... We produce  fairly high quality newspapers  and it just kind of fit."  There will be no changes at  the Coast News, which underwent a major redesign 15  months ago, and the paper will  continue to be published under  Coast News publisher Pat Tripp and Whistler Printing and  Publishing Co. Ltd., president Gary Hebert.  the Glassford Press name. "Any  initiatives for change will come  from within the paper," Doull  said.  The advantage for Whistler  Printing and Publishing will be  in economies of scale that will  allow cost savings on such  things as paper and printing,  accounting and circulation. "We  can sell advertising more broadly and we have quite a background in magazines," Doull  said. "We're planning to revive  Soundings (the Coast News full  colour tourist guide)."  Whistler Printing and Pub  lishing president Gary Hebert  has appointed Pat Tripp, manager of the Coast News, as publisher.  The Whistler branch of  Westmount also owns the  Whistler Question, the  Squamish Chief, begun 20  months ago from scratch, and  the Bridge River/Lillooel News.  Westmount operates the  Banff Crag and Canyon, Can-  more Leader, Golden Star,  lnvermere Valley Echo, Jasper  Booster, Strathmore Standard  and its most recent acquistion,  the Revelstoke Times/Review.  Waterfront policy  stirs wave of protest  Cold and clear, the horizons around the Sunshine Coast present  a variety of visual delights. Joel Johnstone photo  Sechelt council came under  fireWednesday for a 1988  development policy on waterfront property that was recently  put back in force.  The policy requires a five-  metre corridor between any new  waterfront property and the  highwater mark. Members of  the public asked why recent  Sechelt developments were  required to provide the utility  corridor while others were not.  Municipal planner Rob  Buchan said some properties  escape because of an oversight.  He said Sechelt had recently  undergone staff changes,  including lhe addition of himself, and the policy had only  recently been discovered on the  books.  A member of the public also  pointed out that requiring all  new waterfront homes to provide the corridor would mean  those properties would not actually be waterfront and their  respective values would decrease.  Sechelt council asked to expedite housing development  by Stuart Burnside  Sechell council has been taken to task  over a perceived reluctance to support  developmem within the municipality  At Wednesday's council meeiing, lhe  treasurer of the Sunshine Coast Real  Estate Association, Stan Anderson, asked  council to speed up the process for  approving subdivision applications and  said if council didn't act they should be  prepared for the economic consequences.  At a recent planning meeting, councillors expressed concern over the "sudden  proliferation" of subdivision applications  within the municipality, saying there  were too many, too quickly. The applications, if acted on, would create up to 250  new lots.  Anderson argued that development  should be encouraged, not slowed down.  He said development in Sechelt had all  bul stagnated adding it was irresponsible  of council to hold up lhe current applications. He listed Ihe development trends  since 1989 and pointed lo an ever-  decreasing number of developmem lots,  which he blamed directly on the actions,  or lack of action, by council.  "During the development hiatus in  Sechelt over Ihe past four years there  have only been 14 parcels created of any  description," Anderson said. "In order lo  have a respectable inventory of home-  sites, a minimum of 400 lots should have  been created during this time."  Anderson said development was not  only important lo people buying or building homes, bul for the overall Coast economy. He quoted statistics thai pul Ihe  number of construction and development-  related jobs at more than 1,000 and said  40 per cent of all new business licences  were granted to building contractors.  "To put the number of jobs created by  Ihe construction and development industry into perspective," Anderson said,  "these industries employ the equivalent of  two Port Mellons."  At one point Anderson implied the  lack of development was a direct fault of  council's foot dragging, and it was affecting Ihe work of municipal staff.  "The (municipal) planning and engineering departments of the District of  Sechelt are doing a tremendous job under  completely inadequate conditions,"  Anderson said.  While it is council policy not to comment on a delegation presentation on the  night it is made, Cllr. Peggy Wagner  defended council's cautious approach.  "Our concern is not that (developers)  are going to be building, or that people  are going lo come here," she said. "Our  concern is lhat (development within  Sechelt) be done in an orderly fashion. It  is a concern as to how we are going to  provide for the infrastructure, where are  the parks going to go ... "It isn't just a  matter of rezoning and letting you people,  or anybody, just build wherever you have  land."

In  fact, it's been money in the bank  for a few local industries.  "We've been doing really  good," said Annette Murphy of  Blue Wave Cabs. "I'd say we've  doubled our business easy."  That sentiment was echoed  by Teri Gordon al the Sunshine  Coasl Cab Co., which acknowledged business is up 20 to 30  per cent since the first snow in  December.  "It's been non-slop," said  Gordon, "It's unbelievable."  And with people snowed into  their driveways, or sliding off  the road, tow trucks too have  been kept busy. Don Kraus at K  & E Towing said their four  trucks have been "going  steady."  But there were no major accidents, said Kraus, theorizing  that as the weather wears on,  residents become better drivers.  Police confirmed that statement, saying the traffic accident  report over the Christmas holidays was low.  "The guys on the road have  been telling me it really hasn't  been that bad. People just seem  to learn how to drive," said Sgt.  Ed Hill of the Gibsons RCMP  detachment.  The town deserves, in part,  some credit for that low accident rate, said Gibsons Mayor  Eric Small, adding the town's  public works department has  "coped quite well" with the  weather.  Wilh the purchase of an  $80,000 dump truck and plow,  received mid-December, Small  said the town was able to cope  with the unusual snowfall without hiring extra help. He said he  didn't anticipate more than  $15,000 was spent on the 1992  budget for snow removal maintenance.  On Sechelt roads, administrator Art Lew said the town has  also maintained its 1992 budget  of $30,000-$40,000.  Patrick Harvey, 6, busts his way through two inches of ice on a  very shallow pond at Holland Park. Joel Johnstone photo  Said Lew: "I would not call      fall for the Gibsons area on  this a major snow. It's been  mild so far."  In fact, long-time residents  may remember, Environment  Canada recorded the heaviest  December 26, 1968 when it  piled up to 37.6 centimetres.  December 1992's snowfall came  close at a total of 36.8 centimetres.  Fees increase for rural water licence holders  Local "drawers of water" who take their  supply directly from surface creeks and  streams will soon be paying slightly more  for the privilege.  Starting immediately, the provincial Ministry of Environment is raising rental rates  and water license application fees for most  categories of water users in order to cover  increasing costs of water regulation.  Increases vary according to different  types of water use.  Most affected on the Sunshine Coast will  be individual water users, including rural  domestic and agricultural users.  Currently only about eight per cent of  water revenue comes from domestic users,  says Gary Robinson of the water management division. But "when it comes time to  regulate water use in periods of shortage, it's  the domestic and small agricultural use, that  we're out there protecting."  The minimum charge for small domestic  users will go from $13.75 to $19 annually.  Application fees will also rise from $75 to  $100 or $150.  "The new rates will mean a  10 per cent increase in  water revenues'  In the water district which includes the  Sunshine Coast, there are about 1,600  domestic water licences, in comparison to  about 16,000 rural hook-ups to the regional  district's water system.  Municipal and regional water systems  will face only a marginal increase in their  rates, says Robinson, because "they don't  require the sort of hands-on regulation that  *>���  MS  We've  Dedicated to Service  liilQI  nn  ontheCoast  TOP ROW: Dibble Price, Gibsons ��� Jim Wilson, Gibsons ��� Janice Hay, Gibsons ��� Kim Currit, Gibsons ��� Gail Crotaau, Sechelt ��� Carol* Ewntori, Sechelt  ��� Maureen Collins, Gibsons ��� Sharron Shields, Gibsons 2nd ROW Tim Lucas, Gibsons ��� Andrei WriQht, Pendei Harbour ��� Bonnii Rhfirs, Pender  Harbour ��� Sandra Croiby, Pendei Haibout ��� Dibble Kimmirle, Sechelt ��� Diane Mckay.

"But if it has this effect  we would not be unhappy."  The regional district now pays about  $4,800 annually for all of its water licences,  including those for water storage in Chapman and Edwards lakes.  Meanwhile, Howe Sound Pulp and Paper  - another big water user on the Coast - won't  have its rates jacked up much with the new  regulations. "The kind of revenues we're  already receiving from that sector are very  high," says Robinson.  Most money for water management  comes from municipal and industrial users,  including mining operations.  The new rates will mean a 10 per cent  increase in water revenues.  i ������., . ,  . . . .,,. ,., ,,|  "    '    ������     ' ..���   .    It,        :      :",',.

In the interim, council is in the process of approving a 'Revenue  Anticipation Borrowing' bylaw which will allow the municipality to  borrow up to $3.8 million, or 75 per cent of the revenue expected  from 1993 taxes.  BC Ferries says no  BC Ferries has responded to a Sechelt council request for extra  sailings in the negative.  Council made the request in June, 1992, but a response letter from  BC Femes dated Nov. 25 says "adding an additional sailing would  increase the financial loss on the Sunshine Coast services at a time  when the provincial government and BC Ferries can ill afford it."  mK/^yf\*^  Brtleh Columbian a��/N���\ ���  Children's Hospital  Putting smiles back where they belong.

Native studies interest expanding  by Darah Hansen  There's a new trend slowly  developing in Canada as more  Canadians become interested in  Native cultures and peoples.  Books about Natives, by  Natives, Native art, language,  history and culture are moving  closer into the centre of the  nation's educational ring.  "There's a more positive  mood in schools now than there  was five years ago," says Jeff  Smith, local school board coordinator for native studies.  "I suggest it's because of  issues like Oka and self-government," he said. "Native pejple  are much more popular, interest  is just phenomenal right now."  Smith is currently gathering  information on the Sechelt Indian band's history, culture and  language to be used in the school  system from grades K-12.  It's something that really had  never been done in a concise  way before his arrival    in 1990, said Smith. \  What had been gathered was "fairly contradictory" and "a lot  of it was very romantic 'noble savage'  kind of stuff."  Since then, Smith's  office boasts binders  of organized historical  reports, books and      computer   learning  programs and, said Smith, "it's  amazing the amount of material  that hasn't even been tapped."  Working in the company of  Sechell band elders and councillors, linguists and historians,  Smith said the information dates  back to pre-conlact days.  '... We're  talking about  anew  definition of  Canadian  history'  -JeffSmtth  He also noted that post-contact information was difficult to  gather as much was lost due to      cultural oppression  and small pox epidemics, which are  estimated to have  killed one third of  the bands' population every 30 years.  From his office,  the information is  ready upon request  to head into the      schools. The response, he's hoping,  will be profound.  "I believe we're talking about  a new definition of Canadian  history," said Smith, one that  dates beyond European explorers.  Already, the information is  scattered throughout the school  levels in various forms including  an historical timeline, maps, legends and language classes. A  pilot project detailing Sechelt  self-government is also available  this year to Chatelech grade 11  students.  But Smith wants to take it  one step further. Given adequate  funding and time, he hopes to  develop a larger, all encompassing program so the information  can be available to all students in  all classes across Ihe school district.  "The overall goal is to keep  kids in school, nurture imaginations and have them excel in  school," he said, adding it will  further help with issues of bigotry and racism. "To have them  get along as equals and appreciate each other's culture, that's  what I would like to see."  ,���!���������  Development  plans for the  ���%{���:.  .

"-S3S  Contested Halfmoon Bay subdivision a go  by Jane Seyd  Rezoning to allow a much higher density  of housing on a waterfront property in Halfmoon Bay has been recommended by the  SCRD for final adoption this Thursday.  Currently minimum lot size on the 14.7-  hectare (35-acre) subdivision property  between Brooks and Curran roads is 1.75  hectares (approximately 4.4 acres). Under  new zoning requested by owner Frank Jorgensen, minimum parcel size will drop to  1,000 square metres (one-quarter acre),  allowing for over 100 new houses.  At a public hearing held last April, about  60 area residents turned out to comment on  the proposal. Many were concerned about  Ihe prospect of increased volumes of under-  treated sewage being pumped into Halfmoon  Bay, and said the development would take  away from their rural quality of life. Other  concert^ Included a marsh wildlife habitat  on "the property and additional stress on the  area's water system.  Local merchants said they supported the  rezoning, while others said the development  would make waterfront properly accessible  to more people.  Included with the directors' recommendation is a covenant including several requirements to be met before the development can  go ahead.  Among these is payment of $60,000 from  Jorgensen to build a secondary plant sewer  system, and a fee of $4,542 per parcel to pay  for integration of sewer facilities in the existing Halfmoon Bay system. Also, no houses  may be built until the existing sewer system  has been changed to allow disinfection  through ultra-violet treatment.  Creek pitch and putt turned down for now  by Jane Seyd  A rezoning application to allow a pitch  and putt golf course along the highway in  Roberts Creek has been turned down by  regional directors and will not be reconsidered until after the community plan process  is complete.  The recommendation was made Thursday  after directors agreed the issue has become a  flashpoint in the community, which threatens  to detract from other concerns to be  addressed by the official community plan.  Said director Jane Reid: "I haven't seen a  lol of evidence of support for the project."  Last year, the original application from  developer Ron Gillies was turned down after  residents objected to it at public hearings,  citing concerns that development along the  highway would detract from the rural quality  of Roberts Creek. The potential impact of a  golf course on highway traffic and on water  quality in Joe Smith Creek, which supplies  several properties near to the proposed location, was also raised.  Speaking on behalf of Gillies, Peter  McPherson urged directors to approve the  rezoning Thursday night, saying in future it  will be impossible for thr pitch and putt to  get a fair public hearing due to the emotion  now being generated over the issue.  "It is our feeling thai the OCP process has  gone somewhat astray," and that highway  development has become the focus of special  interest groups, said McPherson.  Roberts Creek director Brett McGillivray  disagreed: "I don't think that's fair," he said.  "I think the community has come up with a  decision, though it may not be one the Gillies  are happy with."  Director Jim Gurney said while he supports the pitch and putt proposal, dealing  wilh the issue now will only further entrench  positions in the community. "It's really  unfortunate that the community has not  found itself willing to endorse the project."  But he added, "We shouldn't be developing an OCP around a development...The  whole thing has become unresolvable."

Usually the doublespeak is being applied to explain  such changes as closing a rural post office in order to  grant a postal franchise to a corner store, or arranging for  mail to be sorted at some distant, central complex instead  of in the destination community.  A refreshing and unintended exception appeared last  week in Canada Post's explanation of its Jan. 1 increase  in postal rates, up from 42 cents to 43 cents for a ,-egular  letter, from 48 cents to 49 cents for US-bound correspondence, and from 84 cents to 86 cents for mail destined  overseas.  Says the blurb: "Canada Post's domestic letter price  remains the second lowest of comparable major western  countries in terms of the time required for a manufacturing worker to earn the price of a stamp."  Surely one of the most oblique statistics to have surfaced since mail was delivered in a day, proving beyond  doubt that Canada Post, in spite of its frequent confusion, has the definitive stamp on the word rationalization.  Judges playing  politics  Federal judges are reportedly steamed over Ihe lack of  consideration accorded them in the government's unilateral freeze on salaries, announced by Finance Minister  Don Mazankowski as part of his mini-budget last month.  The nearly 900 superior court judges sitting on benches from coast to coast go so far as to argue that the salary  cap may even be illegal.  Horrors.  Stalwart guardians of procedure, Ihe judges graciously  acknowledge that they would likely have accepted the  freeze if they had been consulted first. Instead, they are  now considering legal action to challenge the constitutionality of the move, which would peg salaries at  upwards of $155,800 for the next two years.  The judges' obsessive, legalese attitude is absurd, resting on the false argument that the freeze threatens the  judiciary's independence from the executive branch of  government. This from a group of public servants  appointed by that same executive branch.  There is no more dab hand at the nuances of form than  a legal practitioner, but judges would do well to avoid the  temptation to finagle in court, and instead sit tight.  Amid the evil fortunes besetting those whose lives  depend in some way on a cheque from the massively  over-extended federal treasury, theirs is not an uncomfortable lot.  Judges intrinsically know this.  It may be that the noises streetwise judges are making  now have little to do with legal or economic conditions,  everything to do with politics. For they also have legal  opinion that says it is unconstitutional for parliament to  reduce their salaries.  A perspicacious manoeuvre from the bench, perhaps?  letters  Cooperative efforts  being made  Due to the compassion, honesty and frankness I felt compelled to respond to a letter in  your Dec. 21 issue written by  Julie Rag.  She expressed concern over  the article where the Sechelt  Indian Band made comments of  how ihey were disappointed and  angered. As once again betrayed  by lhe system and the government - a people's democratic  government that is elected to  protect the land and environment and, more important, to  protect the rights of all Canadians.  Therefore I agree it is high  time that all Canadians take a  sland together and yes, we must  all take a long hard look at ourselves and do some soul searching. We can no longer sit by lhe  wayside and be uninvolved.  As I stated to the Commercial Fishermen's Coalition in  your Dec. 14 issue "We must all  work together to protect our  environment and natural  resources for the future." And  we must not allow no government body or representatives,  corporation, group, club or anyone to divide or set barriers  between us Canadians and the  environment that is beginning to  return our marine life.  As recently as November a  huge amount of Chum salmon  returned to our inlet, also the  herring are reluming in greater  abundance. More reason for the  Orca, or Killer Whale, to pay  recent visits once again to our  pristine inlets.  The natural bounty that we as  native aboriginal people once  enjoyed is now returning for all  the enjoy.  A local commercial fisherman made the statement that  their lifestyle and livelihood is  being threatened by natives and  government. Well, as an aboriginal native of this land, we can  relate and appreciate where he is  coming from. So if we sound a  little bilter or disappointed it is  with good reason.  As a native and commercial  fisherman, I am committed to  protecting and respecting our  natural resources that provide  for my family. The bounty from  Ihe ocean provides my living  and if the ocean provides a  bounty of salmon thai we can  share to much appreciated people who cannot afford more than  one dollar.  And because native persons  from other tribes and yes there  are one or two of our members,  who do not realize our traditions  yet.  But you will be pleased to  know that our tribe is developing a co-management policy  agreement with the department  of fisheries and oceans.  So we are trying to work  cooperatively with the government and hopefully we Canadians can do the same.  CALVIN CRAIGAN  Sechelt  All fishermen  want conservation  Following the recent  announcement of the Pearse-  Larkin Investigation into missing Fraser River salmon stocks,  many people involved in the  fishing industry were quick to  point accusatory fingers.  The Pacific Trailers Association (PTA) has long been known  as the most representative commercial fishing organization in  letters welcome  We welcome letters to the editor on matters of public  interest. However, we reserve the right to edit  submissions for brevity, clarity and legality. Please mail  your letters to:  The Editor  Sunshine Coast News  Box 68  Sechett, B.C.  V0N3A0  BC. We believe it is time for a  more rational debate to lake  place in our communities concerning the future of the salmon  fishery in this province.  We understand that changes  in the management of the fishery will occur - change has  always been a part of this industry. In fact, someone once said  that six months of continuity in  fisheries policy was an eternity.  All fishermen want an industry  that we can continue to rely  upon.  We believe it is important for  individuals to understand the  real matters at hand - it is not  simply 'the native issue'. We  have serious concerns about the  continued resource grab by Ihe  US through the Pacific Salmon  Commission; the degradation of  our marine environment; and of  course, the most important question - proper conservation practices.  The PTA is willing to work  with everyone interested in conserving the resource for ourselves and future generations, be  they communities or individual  citizens. Anyone who is interested in assuring continued  access for all sectors of the  Canadian population - we do  believe in the fair sharing of this  important resource.  Together we can manage  change, but without a rational  dialogue we will continue to be  managed by changes not of our  making - to the detriment of the  resource and all those involved.  DAVE HARDIE,  vice-president, PTA  Environment will need more than just lip service  My, but the media loves to flaunt their concerns  about all things righteous and good.  Take the environment, for example. There is no  issue more likely to get the big play in our national  newspapers; no issue more likely to have the talking heads of television broadcasters more funereally sincere as they bring the latest bad news to our  attention.  A single-hulled oil tanker nearing the end of its  useful life opted last week to take a narrow channel  between the southern Shetland Islands and the Fair  Isle 20 miles south. The tanker was carrying crude  oil from Norway to Quebec for refining.  It was New York owned but of Liberian registry, safely beyond the reach of more demanding  operating standards than Liberia can afford to consider.  Since the Exxon Valdez disaster three years  ago, many countries do not allow single-hulled  tankers into their waters, but part of the Thatcher  legacy in Great Britain is that the British make no  such demands on those who transport oil.  Mrs. Thatcher once said, on the subject of the  Falklands War when she gol to exercise gunboat  diplomacy on the full scale of the 19th Century  imperialists she revered: "It's so nice to have a real  crisis to deal with rather than just tedious issues  like the environment."  The Iron Lady of England is perhaps an extreme  musings  john burnside  example, but if the leaders of the political world  are much more enlightened than Thatcher and her  friend Ronald Reagan, who thought that trees  caused acid rain, there is precious little sign of it.  One doesn't have to be an alarmist to recognize  that the environment is in a state of crisis which is  going to demand the brightest and best minds on  the planet and the support of the most powerful if a  planetary disaster is to be avoided.  Here is where the sonorous and grieving tones  of the television newsreaders and the headlines in  our newspapers mislead us into believing thai care  is being taken.  While bringing us ostentatiously caring reports  about the flavour of the month disaster, they blind  us to the fact, growing inescapable, that Ihe global  situation is deteriorating rapidly with nothing of  significance being done.  Shock waves of alarm and concern were mani  fested when the Exxon Valdes ran aground off  Alaska. After initial inept fumbling, governments  and industry rushed to clean up the beaches.  Exxon's employees were photographed tenderly  wiping the oil from doomed seabirds.  But what really changed. Ancient, single-hulled  tankers, of foreign registry to provide easy operating requirements and cheap wages, are still used by  the oii companies to transport their black gold  around the world.  Reckless and heedless captains, perhaps with  bonuses on the line for speed of transportation,  take lethal shortcuts and disaster is eventually  inevitable.  In the most current example, the waters off the  northern tip of Great Britain where the North Sea  meets the North Atlantic have long been regarded  as among the most tempestuous in the world.  Fang-toothed rocks and bare islands have been the  graveyards of ships since before the biggest part of  the Spanish Armada came to grief among the same  rocks and riptides four centuries ago.  And still we have these creaking tankers of  giant size manoeuvring through channels in the  middle of winter, which brought the galleons of the  Spanish to grief.  Nor are these examples of the careless neglect  of the coastlines and waters of the world the whole  story. Sure, there are just such tankers as the one  impaled on the rocks of southern Shetland still  making their way in stormy seas along the coastlines of the world, including off the coast of British  Columbia.  But there are stories of degradation and disaster  which go unreported even whilst the entertainers  who deliver our televised news are emoting about  the oil on Scottish shores today.  In all the excessive reporting of the Gulf War  very little was said about the ecological disaster  that the expensive and incomplete spanking of  Saddam Hussein left in its wake in the Persian  Gulf.  One report recently said the Iraqis had loosed  20 times as much oil into the comparatively closed  waters of the Persian Gulf as the Exxon Valdez  dumped into Alaskan waters, but to date one tenth  as much money has been spent on the clean-up.  It appears that the royal families of Kuwait and  Saudi Arabia are as disinterested as the oil companies in the environment unless the spotlight of  hyped up news coverage is actually on ihem.  Among the political leaders of the world today,  only incoming American Vice President Al Gore  seems aware of the growing environmental disaster  taking shape.  One of these days, the environment is going to  need more than saccharine lip service. One of these  days soon.

Since you're reading the  Coast News, we should assume  Ihis organ is one of your main  sources of information. Perhaps  you also watch network or cable  TV, read a daily newspaper or  regular news magazine and  sometimes peruse a supermarket  tabloid.  Most of us accept this abundance of information as a good  thing. We welcome the variety  of sources, because we're told  different voices help guarantee  our right to know.  Ben Bradlee isn't so sure. In  a speech delivered earlier this  year to a gathering in Dublin,  Bradlee - the editor of the  Washington Post, the newspaper  made famous in the early 1970s  by its pursuit of the Watergate  scandal - sketched a picture of  strange changes underway in the  North American media industry.  The strangest of the strange,  according to Bradlee, is the  rapid evolution of what he terms  New News, a catchword for the  jumble of media vehicles  employed to cash in on the public's fascination for Hollywood  and television. This crazy-quilt  of influences includes pop  music, pop art, celebrity and  entertainment magazines, supermarket weeklies and 'info-tain-  nient' television programming.  The problem is not an abundance of news sources, which is  good, but the quality of those  sources, which is bad.  Bradlee claims that as more  and more people turn to New  News for their information  about the world, society suffers  an increase in its general level  of ignorance. The reason is that  New News is too superficial to  be informative, and that enter  tainment disguised as news does  not educate.  We could easily dismiss  Bradlee's thesis as the ravings  of a newspaper editor moaning  about the loss of readers and  revenue, because the growth of  New News has caused financial  problems for regular newspaper  and television outlets. We could  also argue that by blaming New  News sources for fostering general ignorance, mainstream  organs may be trying to divert  attention from their own failures.  Except thai in explaining his  case, Bradlee offered some  examples that give pause for  thought. He claimed, for  instance, that more people will  hear rap singer Sister Souljah's  proposals for stopping violence  in the streets of Los Angeles  than will listen to any thoughtful proposals from government  leaders. As well, he argued that  Bart Simpson and talk show  hosts like Oprah have become  more powerful than the most  respected newspaper columnists  or television analysts. And he  pointed out that while cable  television coverage of the Gulf  War offered plenty of high-tech  theatrics, it supplied none of the  analysis or context needed to  help people truly understand the  conflict.  Bradlee's concern is that an  audience which relies only on  New News is denied a factual,  rounded and reasonable presentation of events, whether it be  race relations or a government's  justification for going to war.  Instead, a society which looks to  New News for its information  receives only "an opinion,  expressed through a filter of  ignorance, in the guise of entertainment."  letters  ebbtide  duncan macdonnell  Even so, the real problem  with New News is not that it  exists as an extension of factual  reporting, but that it is beginning to supplant factual reporting and analysis. Why is this  troubling? Because if Ihe preferred source of information is  entertainment masquerading as  news, we should expect a day  when people know all about a  prime ministerial candidate's  hairstyle, but next to nothing  about his or her economic policies.  The reason is that while New  News is bright and sassy and  entertaining, it cannot provide  depth. And if it cannot provide  depth, it cannot hope to provide  real understanding.  Is there any solution to the  danger of ignorance being used  to promote further ignorance?  Not if mainstream media elects  to fight back by implementing  changes designed to recapture  readers and viewers already lost  to New News outlets. They  would have to fight fire with  fire, which means more of the  breezy style and light pap that  sent people to other sources in  the first place.  A more respectable style of  New News, albeit with lower  doses of superficiality and  banality, is not the answer.  We've already seen how bad  some of our newspapers have  become by placing a heavier  Change reality,  not perceptions  Premier Harcourt believes  that it is easier and cheaper to  try to change people's perceptions of reality than it is to  change reality. So this spring  he'll go to Europe to try to persuade them that all is well in  BC's forests.  Harcourt's 'head-in-the-sand'  approach further erodes BC's  international reputation. While  publicly boasting of new attitudes and tougher regulations,  thoughtful Europeans will be  thumbing through copies of die  July '92 Tripp Report and the  August '92 Report on the Donna  Creek slope failure.  Donna Creek is 75 kilometres northwest of Mackenzie.  The report says that as a result  of poorly built roads by Fletcher-Challenge, over 60,000 gravel truck loads of soil and debris  were deposited into Donna  Creek, damaging over 60 kilometres of stream channel.  Sorry Mike, Europeans know  how to read and can tell fact  from fantasy.

We need much  less of that, not more.  No - my recommendation  would be to institute junior and  senior high school courses on  media literacy, with a passing  grade required before the student could graduate.  Understanding the media is  crucial in the midst of this information age. If we can provide a  greater understanding of what  the media is and how it delivers  its messages, we can arm people  with the ability to recognize  how they are - and how they are  not - being served. We can give  them the means to differentiate  between their sources of news,  and to separate factual from  fancy-free.

Walter and Jean were married  in Bromley, Kent, England when  bolh were serving in the RAF.  In England at the start of  WW II, Walter had joined the  RAF, where his years of flying  experience keeping his private  pilot's licence current made him  an outstanding candidate for  bomber pilot. Jean, a WAAF  officer, served on the same RAF  station in England.

Cold and flu season is here!  When cold and flu season comes upon us be sure you have your  supply of INF Complex close by. Formulated by world-renowned  Dr. Alfred Vogel this is a remedy which could help to keep that  nasty aliment from getting us down.  One of the ingredients is the herb Echinacea. A plant originally  native to this continent it has been used for centuries by North  American native Indians for various ailments but specifically on  wounds and snake bites. Today it has found much wider and  greater uses due to its special ability to help with the body's  immunity system.  Echinacea has been shown to stimulate your natural delense  mechanisms making it ideal for the prevention ot cold-type  diseases. Its ability to stimulate interferon helps keep bacterial and  viral infections in check. It can be used on a regular basis by itself  or in combination as in the INF Complex when needed.  To help with those other flu symptoms INF Complex also contains  aconitum, baptisia, bryonia, eupatorium. Ferr, phos., gelsemium,  and lacnesis. Each of these works in its own ways to help the body  get rid of toxins.  Used properly and as  directed this combination can  be most effective lor  alleviating your chills,  temperature, aches, and  pains.  Don't delay any longer. Get  yourself some INF Complex  or Echinaf orce and keep that  debilitating flu away.  885-7001 #3*5522 Wharf Rd., Sechelt  Walter and Jean for more than  50 years presented a letter that  was read to the gathering.  In his letter, Earl Ward, an air  gunner in Waller's bomber crew,  said lhat he felt Walter's skill as  a pilot always brought Ihem  safely back lo base after each  mission.  Walter, his war service  marked by decorations for bravery, continued in service in lhe  RAF after the war's end, wilh  lhe rank of Wing Commander.  After several years, however,  Walter and Jean, now the parents of two children, decided to  make Canada home. For Jean il  was a farewell to her home  country and for Walter, a return  to his.  Waller had left his home in  Vancouver when he was 16 lo  train at HMS Conway in England for service in the Merchant  Marine and had then gone to sea  on the Cl'R's Empress ships  where in lime he became a  Bridge Officer.  After Iheir return lo Canada  and Walter's four years in the  College of Chiropractics in  Toronto, the family settled on  the Coast where Waller sel up  practice first in Vancouver,  West Vancouver and then part  time here in (iibsons. Now Walter and Jean live in Roberts  Creek on the site of tlieir former  summer collage.  The Slurdy's Ihree children,  sons Paul and Morgan, and  daughter Diane Maitland, all of  West Vancouver, planned Ihis  occasion for their parents. Messages and good wishes came  from England, New Zealand and  the US.  The Slurdys has five grandchildren and nne of them, a  granddaughter, has inherited her  grandfather's love of lhe sea.  She has done Iwo voyages as a  crew member on square-rigged  barkcnlincs, one through Ihe  Panama Canal and Ihe other  through Ihe Baltic, across the  Atlantic to end in New York,  where au inspector declared the  vessel unfit to be al sea.  Hydro girdling  postponed  BC Hydro's brush control  "girdling" project in Roberts  Creek, reported in the lasl issue  of lhe Weekender, has been  postponed due to the amount of  snow along the powerline.  Hydro representative John  Emery said no new dale had  been sel, hui the girdling could  lake place al the end of the  month. The public had been  invited lo watch Ihe pesticide-  free brush control program in  operation.  FRESH,  FRESH,  FRESH!  AUDREY'S  COFFEE  SERVICE community  Snow lovers, the Nielsens - Cassie, 10, Sara, 6, and mother Carrie - shaped a snow family on  Marlene Koad last week, giving passersby some seasonal pleasure. Joel Johnstone  roberts creek  by Beverley Shipley  Public opinion, input and pressure can make a  difference. An example of this to lake place Ihis  month is BC Hydro's brush-clearing program on  its powerline right-of-way. Instead of spraying  young deciduous trees to death, Hydro is implementing a girdling method, whereby the trees have  a thin strip of bark removed which causes them lo  go dormant. This technique is labour intensive  (obviously more cosily), so herbicides are not  totally out of the picture, yet. But this is a start in  that direction.  Caprlcorns  Happy birthday, Capricorns. You all seem lo be  whining and crying because your happy day falls  on or very close to Chrislmas and New Year's.  The Capricorns that surround my life (and there  seems to be a large percentage of them) may be  crying ihe blues, but appear to be hauling in more  presents, cards and money than ever before.  Then these goat people are demanding parties  in the summer, as well. 1 finally have opened my  eyes to Cs and realize their attitude of hard done  by, is all a fake and they are really laughing as  they rake in the goodies.  You Capricorns may be stubborn, goat-headed,  and of course, nothing is ever your fault, but the  rest of us slill love you for your caring, loyal and  faithful-to-the-end personalities.  School News  School is back in session, minus one regularly  scheduled day and if it snows again, likely more  days will be missed.  The school year seems to be getting shorter and  shorter with half days, (is it even a half day when  school is dismissed at 11:45 am?), full districl  days and two week breaks. Are these exlra cancelled days due to snow (maybe if it rains too hard  or gels too hot in June this should also be a cancelled day), going to be made up in the summer  months? Wouldn't it be a practical option if you  could send your children to school more than the  regular days, including some summer holidays so  that they wouldn't get so bored and could finish  grade 12 at, say age 16 and get on with their lives,  post-secondary education, etc.?

"We can't even get out of  the driveway," is a common  comment. We must, however,  be thankful for the Sunshine  Coast transit bus which has  made it through wind and snow  every day throughout it all. A  short power bump last week  triggered a bit of panic for those  who have to depend on electric  heat and who have no fireplace  as a standby.  Thankfully the outage was  only for a couple of hours when  il was duly fixed. Thank you to  the bus drivers and to the BC  Hydro fellows. Thanks are due  also to all the volunteer fire  departments who have had their  fair share of calls recently. Just  sechelt scenario  The chilly waters of Halfmoon  Bay at Coopers Green beckoned, briefly, to New Year's  celebrants.  Ruth Forrester photo  make sure that your chimney is  cleaned regularly.  A Celebration  A group of merry people  gathered at the Welcome Beach  community hall to greet the  New Year and were certainly  not disappointed. The company  was delightful, the food great, as  was the music and participation  of some of our more popular  entertainers.  As always, master of ceremonies Bill Vorley made everyone feel welcome and carried  out his duties well.  Greatly appreciated was the  fact that the parking area had  been cleared of snow prior to  the evening event, thanks to  Franz, Gunther and Leo.  A reminder that bridge at the  hall starts up again this Friday,  Jan. IS at I pm.  Plans for the coming year are  presently underway with the  directors of the Welcome Beach  Community Association so you  can look forward lo receiving  your list of events in the mail in  the near future.

This is indeed a cold winter. The birds arc al the feeder from dawn until dusk and, I notice, are  not very polite about sharing or taking turns. I counted five different  kinds of birds vying for their rations in the past few days. There are  tracks leading to shrubs in our yard where the deer are nibbling  leaves above Ihe snow line.  In the pond opposite our community mailboxes, about 50 ducks  have grown up over the summer. So many people have been feeding  the ones that have remained to winter there that they have become  almost too tame and trusting. But lately their faith in a benign world  has been severely tested.  I watched them aim for the pond in their usual expectation of a  glamourous skid into the water only to land, kerplunk, on the ice and  to skate helplessly for a few feet, honking angrily. Life on the Sunshine Coast is not what it should be, weather-wise, and like the  ducks, I feel a little disoriented. I have tulips which adventurously  poked their heads above the soil a few weeks ago. They must wonder  if I moved them back to Saskatchewan.

Custom Packing, Storage), Local �� Long Dlatanca Moving  HWY. 101, GIBSONS 886-2664  by Lynn Mees  I remember when I first came to live in the area I was enamoured  with the people, and the Coast. I wanted very much to be part of it  all. A friend told me that when one of the local people make you  something you know you are accepted.  It was when my first son Uriah was born that Edna Howitt made  him a pair of mittens. I was so happy, because then I knew I was  acknowledged as someone who lived here and was part of the local  scene. I gave her some pot holders that I quilted in return.  Edna lived in Egmont for a long time and has been a part of many  people's lives, has raised children who are still part of the community today. Edna will be missed and remembered by many people. She  was a good person, helpful in the community in many ways.  With all this snow a true sense of hibernation has set in, it seems.  I haven't seen anyone for weeks. It sure is pretty and the kids really  enjoy it, all except driving in it, it's a nice change.  Our regular play group, which meets on Tuesdays hasn't been so  regular for the last few weeks. Once the snow leaves we'll be back  on schedule.  We sure have been going through the wood, us coasters just aren't  used to this freezing weather.  Maybe we'll be skating in the near future as where we're living  right now there's a pond in the back yard. Until next week may  peace fill your hearts.  Road conditions during the excess snow make this a familiar  sight from Egmont to Port Mellon. Keith Thirkell pholo  harbour watch  by Jacalyn Vincent  Congratulations to Fred on  his exciting win!

Music Society presents  A must for everyone to enjoy  is the performance of John  McLachlan at the Pender Harbour Community Hall on Friday, Jan. 22 at 7:30 pm. Doors  will open at 7 pm. A fiddler and  bass player will accompany this  internationally known musician.  McLachlan composes his own  Canadian songs as well as per-  ���Jbnoing t*e standard folk songs  everyone loves and remembers.  John was so well received in our  community last June that we  just had to have him back. Tickets are available at Mist  Sunny's in Madeira Park' or at  Talewind Books in Sechelt or  from any of the society members at $8 per adult, $5 for teens  and children under 12 years,  free.  PH Aquatic Centre  There's still time to register  for courses at the Pender Harbour Aquatic Centre, from water  babies to gym and swim, fitness  classes and more. On Jan. 23 the  pool will sponsor a CPR fitness  and first aid course. You may  pre-register now. The fee is $70  and is from 8 am to 8 pm. Many  classes will have to be dropped  if there isn't an active participation from the public, so enjoy  the active living.  The Aquatic Centre has now  set up a scholarship fund in the  name of Carla Lee. Carla was a  teacher in our area who passed  away last year and was one of  the pool's first life time members. This scholarship fund is  for any PH High School students who excel in recreation  and education. The aquatic  society is donating $100 to  extra-curricular team sports.  What a terrific idea. Also look  forward to the weight room  being expanded, probably in the  summer. This feat will be performed by Ihe Garden Bay Fire  Department, which in return  may use the room to continue  physical fitness workouts. And  we thought they were all calendar material already.

The branch is asking for volunteers to help with the building. Think of Ihis donated time  as an opportunity to contact a  friend and do Ihis together. All  you have to do is answer the  phone, welcome visitors and  maybe answer some questions.  Ask about transportation to  and from the centre.  I think that women of a certain age group aren't used to  going some place to lounge  remember when  around. Men are more used to  'hanging out' at public places,  such as the pub or legion. This  is the '90s, ladies and no one  asks whether you were female  or male when you reached gold  card age.  If you think management  could do better, volunteer and  see to changes. It's not that  they're wrong, il's just thai no  one has thought along the lines  that you have. Wc can always  learn to think differently and  expand our experiences. These  diverse interests were necessary  to get the centre built. Volunteer  in January and February and  leave these gray days at home.  Ernie Addicott is entertainment chairman. His accent tells  us he is from the British Isles.  He arrived ih Canada in 1955  and he is a retired school teacher. His interests led him lo  grades 6 and 7 with a strong  background in English and  music. He spent a number of  years in Medicine Hat. When I  spoke with him he told me he is  looking for people or groups to  entertain the seniors. He has  entertained at hospitals, extended care facilities and senior residences. He likes to visit Kirkland Centre.  See you at the centre.  Last year, more than hall ot all calls for assistance sent out by fishing vessels were the result ol mechanical breakdowns.  Most could have been prevented. Checking your fuel supply and fluid levels, keeping a maintenance record and tuning up your vessel thoroughly before setting  out will not only save hassles; it could also save your life. Smart fishing is safe fishing; once you make it a habit, you'll swear by it.

LOG  BUYING  STATION  Competitve Prices  Camp Run  CEDAR-FIR-HEMLOCK  886-7033  by Darah Hansen  Sunshine Coast artists and crafts people  working in any and every medium arc invited to participate in "Friends of the Gallery",  a free-for-all unjuried show which opens the  1993 year.  "Friends" is a celebration of the cooperation and reciprocal support between the arts  institution and the arts community. Artists  can enter up to three works: the curator,  Larry Westlake, will show at least one of  them, and as many more as space permits. In  the past, said Westlake, up to ISO works  have been displayed at one time and because  of their proximity and diversity in style, "It's  a very exuberant show," he said.  For artists who have never exhibited  before, this is their chance, said Westlake.  "You'll be showing with a host of others,  including enthusiastic students, talented  amateurs, seasoned professionals and  inspired perspirers."  To be included in the "Friend," bring  your work to the Arts Centre on Saturday,  January 16, between I am and 4 pm. There  is no entry fee, no age limit nor means test  required but an information sheet for  labelling must be filled out. Should the proposed date prove a problem, artists are asked  to phone (88S-S4I2) to arrange another time  when they can drop their work off.  The show opens on Wednesday, Jan. 20.  Regular hours will also recommence (I I am  - 4 pm Weds-Sat, I pm - 4 Sun).  In February there will be an exhibition  called "Works in Clay - from Coastal Col  lections" repeating the idea of the popular  1991 show "From Your Collection," but  concentrating on work in a single medium.  Artists or non-artists with any pottery,  ceramics, sculpture, or 'other' in the chosen  medium that they would like to show are  urged to call one of the exhibition coordinators (all professional clay workers). Barbara  Barron, 886-2299, Beth Feldman 886-9653,  Pat Forst 886-2543, Elaine Futterman 885-  2395 and Katie Janyk 886-4711 as soon as  possible.  The idea, said Westlake, is to allow public access to the work out in the community  that is seen by comparatively few people.  Final decisions must be made by January  31; coordinators will be visiting homes in  order to make the selections.  ��S��i��t��fe^  ��� 23 Modern Rooms  ��� Kitchen Units - by week or month  Colour Cable T.V.   ��� Full Bath & Shower  Direct Dial Phones ��� Reasonable Rates  886-2419 ��� Sunshine Coast Hwy.

"After a brief plateau period,  we're climbing again in terms of  the amount of money spent in  BC on goods and services in  support of the film industry,"  said film commission president  Dianne Neufeld in a news  release.  Along with Needful Things,  the other major features shot in  BC in 1992 were:  ��� Alive, filmed in the Inver-  mere area;  ��� This Boy's Life, starring  Robert DcNiro, shot at Ihe Seymour Demonstration Project in  Vancouver.  TV movie production in BC  included the Exxon Valdez  Story, in which the environmental oil spill disaster was recreated using special effects, and The  Man Upstairs, starring (Catherine  Hepburn.  According to commission  statistics, the number of productions shot in BC has increased  every year for the past 10 years.  "The development of non-  polluting, knowledge-based  industries such as the film  industry is vital to the diversification of BC's economy," said  Oksana F.skell, president of the  BC Trade Development Corporation.
