 The Sunshine  I    Legislative libran  |   Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  89.8  Published on the Sunshine Coast        25'per copy on news stands     November21,1988    Volume 42    Issue47  A lucky local  Eyewitness account  of whale birth  Sechelt's mayor-elect Tom Meredith (right) is all smiles after winning the November 19 municipal election. Congratulating Meredith is winning aldermanic candidate, David Wells. ���Nancy Argyle photo  by Jacqueline Burns  Pink and grey. The baby Or-  ca born at the Vancouver  Aquarium surfaced for air and  was a pastel shade of pink  where Mom and Dad are white.  It will turn white over the  next two months and its dark  grey will become black. The  aquarium staff aren't sure who  dad is. Can whales keep this  sort of thing a secret?  They aren't sure of the calf's  sex. And they were totally surprised at the timing of the birth.  Statistics on Orca births are  hard to come by.  It was a sheer fluke that 1 was  at the aquarium to watch this  wondrous event. I love to be by  the water, not on it, so the  chances of me seeing an orca in  its natural environment is  limited to the Langdale ferry.  My husband and I arrived at  the aquarium at 2 pm. Since this  was to be my first viewing of  Orcas, I suggested we go to the  whale pool first.  There was a crowd, so we  figured a show was about to  start. We found a comfortable  spot and a staff member was  talking on what sounded like a  CB over the sound system.  He stated that the fluke was  now visible and gave stats about  the length of time the two  previous live births took. We  were astounded!  The announcer on the CB  was below ground, outside the  viewing area (closed to the  public for this event), so he filled us in on the underwater  world. His name was Gil and  the photographer on duty was  Finn (sounds fishy, but it's  true).  We quickly learned to identify Bjossa, she was the one having contractions at the surface.  In the pool with her were Finna,  a male Orca, and White Wings,  a North American Dolphin.  Hyak, the very large male,  had been removed to an adjoining pool.  The birth took place at 3:08.  A roar and applause broke out  when the mother and calf first  appeared.  Now here's the part that  doesn't make sense to me, what  1 saw and what the aquarium  staff later stated, seems to be in  conflict.  There was a frenzy in the  pool immediately following the  expulsion of the after-birth. At  this point, the four mammals in  the pool were swimming together, as in a herd.  Finna appeared to be attempt  ting to drown the calf and the  mother. The baby has scratches  on its hide.  The staff states the male was  trying to push the calf to the  surface so it could breath.  Whatever the actuality, the staff  began a training session to calm  the whales.  Personally, I had a whale of a  time. It was the eighth natural  wonder of my world.  Meredith is mayor-elect  Sechelt votes in heavy turnout  Joe elected trustee  by Nancy Argyle  The race is over! Tom  Meredith is the District of  Sechelt's new mayor.  Meredith was declared the  winner with 878 votes to Bud  Koch's 743 ballots. Meredith  maintained an early lead from  the advance poll, losing ground  only once to Koch in the Davis  Bay area.  It was a close race with only  135 votes separating the two  mayoralty candidates. Former  mayor, Bud Koch accepted  defeat gracefully, saying he was  glad to be able to serve and he  wishes the new council the best  of luck.  "I believe the die is cast for  Sechell. Nothing can stop this  district from being successful,"  added Koch.  Koch had phoned in for the  results of the election while  Meredith sat through the three  hours it took to count the  ballots. When the final totals  were annnounced, Meredith accepted congratulations and  handshakes from well-wishers.  After expressing hit pleasure  in the results of the election,  Meredith headed home to share  the good news with his wife.  Like Meredith, David Wells  was also present at the  Municipal Hall waiting for the  final tally of votes. A big smile  broke across his face when  returning officer Malcolm  Shanks announced he had won  an aldermanic seat on council.  Wife, Fran congratulated him  with a kiss.  "I'm really gratified the people trust a newcomer like  myself. I intend to work hard  and I'm looking forward to the  next two years," said Wells.  Wells and his wife then headed home to a waiting champagne bottle in the fridge.  Also new on council will be  Robert Graham who was successful in his bid for alderman.  Returning to council will be  Joyce Kolibas who was reelected to her seat with the  highest number of votes for any  of the candidates.  The following is a list of the  final totals for the aldermanic  candidates: Joyce Kolibas 1023;  David   Wells   794;   Robert  Graham 747; Charles Pratt 650;  Len Herder 626; Bob Young  520.  Congratulations go out to all  those who participated in the  election and, especially, to the  residents who exercised their  right to vote.  A stunning 65 per cent of the  clibible voters turned out at the  polls to elect a mayor and three  aldermen.  Returning officer Malcolm  Shanks said, "That figure is the  highest I believe for the last 10  years. We usually get 25 to 30  per cent out.  "We were quite amazed at  the turnout and very pleased as  well. Even the restructuring  referendum, held in June 1986,  only brought out 50 per cent of  the voters," he added.  Lenora Joe, a Sechelt Indian  Band councillor, in the local  government elections Saturday,  won a seat on the Sunshine  Coast District 46 Public School  Board.  Joe handily defeated opponent Mary Bittroff 250 to 79.  Only 14 per cent of the eligible  2252 voters in School Board  rural area 2 cast their ballots.  School area 2 includes Sunshine Coast Regional District  Areas D, E and F and the remainder of old Area C.  LENORA JOE  $1.75 million of permits issued  Building boom in Gibsons  by Harold Blaine  Having been almost completely asleep for a decade, the  family housing construction industry has awakened in recent  weeks in Gibsons with building  permits issued to a total of  $1.75 million.  "These projects are a welcome addition to the town's  housing supply," Town Planner  Rob Buchan told Gibsons council November 15.  The last apartment building  undertaken in the town was in  1978 said the planner.  Twin Oaks Construction  recently had a fairly good commercial success with five  townhouses across from the  firehall on North Road. So now  it is commencing two local projects.  The first is on School Road  below Gibsons School on the  site of a project previously  abandoned by a developer. The  first phase of 12 two and three  bedroom units there were  valued at $500,000 on the  building permit, according to  town building inspector Ralph  Jones.  There will be a further eight  units on that site eventually.  Another project for this firm  is on the southeast comer of  North Road and Reed. This will  be multi-family housing for  retirement, like those across  from the firehall on North.  These are described as single  storey, side by side duplexes.  They are valued at $240,000 for  building permit purposes.  Panorama Construction is  building over $1 million worth  of housing designed for seniors  in two phases at Gower Point  Road and Dougal. The units are  mostly two bedroom with about  1,200 square feet of floor space  each.  The one bedroom units are  about 800 square feet. The first  phase of eight units started  some little time ago were valued  at $500,000.  A permit just being issued for  the second Marina Place phase  of 12 units is valued at  $524,000. This phase is of one  and two storey units.

'Sold' signs to go  Sechelt council has decided to send all real estate companies a courtesy letter asking for the removal of 'sold' signs.  Council feels a 14 day period from the date of sale should  be sufficient to allow companies time to remove their signs.  The $1 million worth of housing under construction at Gower Point and Dougal Roads in Gibsons is designed for seniors.  ���Vera Elliott pholo  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  MMMMi  ��� -���������.���.-     ���   ���   Vjj Coast News, November 21,1988  MONDAY 7:05*1  Signs needed  When the design, quality, positioning and maintenance  of street signs in an area aren't up to par, reports start to  be heard of fire, ambulance and other vehicles having  trouble finding the addresses of people in difficulty. That  is exactly what's been happening here in recent weeks on  the Sunshine Coast.  The Roberts Creek Community Association complained  to the Sunshine Coast Regional District board the other  day that an emergency vehicle had trouble in the Stephens-  Latimer area. Another recent report told how a house  burnt down because the firefighters went to the wrong  house.  These reports led us to pay attention to the adequacy of  signs to be found in a number of localities visited. Only a  cursory look was required to come to the conclusion the  quality and maintenance of the signs on local streets and  roads leaves much to be desired.  To begin with, probably the busiest interesection on the  Sunshine Coast has no signs at all. That's the main intersection in  downtown Gibsons.  At a good many corners signs are missing, or there is only a sign for the roadway in one direction. In many areas  the lettering on the signs is too small to read.  A lot of signs have lettering on only one side and can't  be read by those travelling in the other direction. A good  many signs are almost impossible to read in car lights at  night. The quality and uniformity of local road sign design  also has a great deal to do with the image of a  neighbourhood.  Further, this is a tourist area. There i�� nothing which  distresses travellers more than poor street signage. It is  clear local governments should give this matter some care  and attention.  Election '88  Congratulations to all those who will take on the  responsibilities of public office al the end of this month.  Good luck in your deliberations at the level of government  which most nearly affects the lives of our citizens.  Particular congratulations to the residents of the District  Municipality of Sechelt who turned out in record numbers  to cast their ballots despite the distraction of a coincidental  federal election.  Finally, a note of thanks to those candidates who served  but were not returned to office. The hours of effort expended on behalf of the community cannot be measured.  No office holder at the so-called senior levels of government is as close to the people and as readily available for  criticism which is not always constructive.  To have served to the best of one's ability is to deserve  the thanks of all.  5 YEARS AQO  Clough Creek and Malcolm Creek in the Roberts Creek  area went on the rampage three days apart after torrential  storms, damaging properties and closing highways. A provincial disaster area was declared.  A contract was signed between Gibsons Town and Gibsons Marina Hotel Inc. for construction and operation of a  new marina in Gibsons Harbour.  The Aleta Giroux rink won the Ladies Club Bonspiel  held at Gibsons on the weekend. The Diane Johnson rink  was the 'B' event winner.  A15 percent turnout of Sechelt voters turned down Sunday shopping in a referendum.  10 YEARS AGO  A dangerous situation was averted when a driver at the  Langdale ferry terminal discovered that the rudder of the  Oueen of New Westminster was loose.  A series of pictures catches an accident in which a trimaran, owned by Terry Forshner, capsized in Gibsons harbour.  Olaf Wallander made a presentation to Sechelt council  last week in which he offered Whitaker House to the  village as a museum.  20 YEARS AGO  Six Sechelt Indian Band fishermen will apply to the Indian Fishermen's Development Board for financial help in  bringing the band's fishing industry up to date. It Is expected the applications will call for bigger and better craft  than those now in use.  Ernie Burnett, prominent because of wood carvings produced in Gibsons, has lett for Oregon where he will  decorate a motel.  30 YEARS AGO  A surprise party honouring the 50th wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Dowling of Wilson Creek, was  held at the home ot Mrs. Elizabeth Reid.  Wilson Anderson ot Elphinstone High School interviewed Mohamed El Khider on the TV show "Around the World  Press Conference."  40 YEARS AGO  Junior string orchestra made its debut at the community hall in Roberts Creek.  Twelve year old Rosemary Johnson narrowly averted  serious injuries when her bicycle skidded, plunging her  head-first into the icy water of Davis Bay.

Our man in Victoria  A whale of a political tale  by Bruce Grierson  In the beginning, the three  had equal billing, jostling for  space under the hot lights of the  media stage before a scrum of  journalists who doted on their  every twitch and grunt.  As the days passed, aides  brought in specialists with  bizarre names and unique  technical skills to support their  campaign.  Then one of the players, the  smallest, faded out of the picture, and the nation's consciousness focused on the two  who remained.  They had different names,  and those near them could tell  them apart in a second, but to  most of us, these two looked  and sounded pretty much alike.  We seemed to be hearing little  more from them than regular  expulsions of air.  It's hardly a coincidence that  three California grey whales,  Crossbeak, Bonnet, and Bone,  became mired in the ice near  Barrow, Alaska at the same  time as John Turner, Brian  Mulroney and Ed Broadbent  were campaigning for an upcoming federal election.  Something - call it kismet or  synchronicity or Mackenzie  King's Pomeranian, dropped  these two events into our laps,  and invited us to make a connection between them. Consider  for a moment, the similarities:  Up north, the Soviet icebreaker, Vladamir Arseniev,  flew an American flag alongside  the Soviet hammer and sickle,  and for a few days, interna  tional boundaries were forgotten. In Canada, the Liberals ran  television ads featuring a rough  map of North America, and a  hand erasing the 49th parallel.  While Archimedes screw tractors   augered   holes   in   the  Tyner Talk  Alaskan ice, 'spin doctors'  managed the flow of information to the Canadian media  following the TV debates.  In Barrow, the home fires  were forgotten as crews spent  millions of dollars liberating a  potential food source for  dozens of needy Inuit families.  In this country, all three party  leaders promised massive government spending, with little  regard for our own $300 billion  national debt.  And, of course, all attention  in Barrow remained on the high  profile countries, while the  Japanese waited in the wings,  silently, with harpoons at the  ready. The economic parallel  seems clear.  Now, the impact of the two  stories is undeniable. The three  whales made the front pages of  papers worldwide for two  weeks, and the interest in Campaign '88 suggests a high turnout is likely at the polls. But  how can this impact be explained?  Part of the answer lies in each  story's every-increasing pressure  of dramatic events, the cinematic hook of the 'race against the  clock'. The grey whales were  not only falling further behind  their migrating comrades by the  day, but their very lives were  continually on the line in  Canada, the clock ticks ever  down. The voters have to find  hard information in a sea of  rhetoric on the free trade agreement and decide what it means  for themselves, and for Canada.  But more important is that  the stories have (as the media  like to say) 'touched a nerve'.  We sense the presence of subtext.  The Barrow tale is not a 'save  the whales' story. Whales are  still routinely slaughtered by  European mariners every day,  and everyone knows it. Rather,  it is about idealogically opposed  countries working together  toward a common goal, and the  attendent implication of that for  world peace.  The Canadian campaign  story is not about economics  since 80 percent of  Canada/U.S. commerce is  already unrestricted, since some  sectors will clearly benefit while  others will suffer, and since  some of the most sensitive  details remain to be negotiated  over the next five to seven years.  The campaign story is about national identitv.  Depending on how you view  the free trade agreement,  Canada is on the verge of  becoming a top-tier fully-  functioning genuine article in  the global community, or a shy  and pliant wallflower doomed  forever to take sand in the face  on the vast beach of international realtions.  Well into the saga of the  stranded greys, Washington  Post columnist Henry Mitchell  wrote: "In the vast sweep of  nature, the future of Crossbeak,  Bonnet and Bone is irrelevant:  other grey whales will replace  them". He was quite right. And  by the same token, other party  leaders will supplant John,  Brian and Ed in our lives, if not  in our memories. But the outcome of Campaign '88 will  forever mark a turning point in  the history of the country. As  John Turner advised supporters  during a mainstreaming session  in the east: "November 21st is  more than an election. It's your  future".  Tale  It was not the lock that disturbed���for I had the key  But over the lock, that web of filigree  And the large black witch who watched  From her wheel house, so intricately latched.  Some might have taken warning, gone away  Up sodden path, through evergreen  Past devil's club and spleen  Dashed into daylight and the hard highway.  But I took the key, fitted it into lock  And turned. The spider house split loose,  Witch scuttled off to hide, fell prey  For the intruder's foot, ihe stranger's way.  So did I come to own that hen-legged house.  And the house, surprised, grew meeker than a mouse.  Dorothy Livesay  Nobody wants to talk about deficit  by James H. Tyner  The possibility of the loss of  sovereignty through the free  trade agreement was hotly  debated by the politicians during the election campaign.  However, they all pretty well  avoided the chief cause of inflation, the continuing deficit.  All sought to obtain attention  by promising more and greater  spending. Many of the programs proposed were desirable,  some of them vital, all of them  expensive.  The leader of the Conver-  satives stumped the country,  promising to spend billions on  day care, the Hiberinial Oil  Development (despite the fact  that there is a glut on world oil  markets), compensation for  closing the Newfoundland  Railway, coastal patrol vessels,  Oslo oil sands project, Lloyd-  rninster heavy oil upgrader,  compensation to Japanese  Canadians and a Vancouver  bland gas pipeline.  All this in addition to loan  guarantees of several billions.  The leader of the Liberals,  among other things, promised  sewers and roads in Canadian  cities, a day care program, mortgage interest deductible for income tax purposes, and a plan  to make 50 percent of the oil  and gas industry Canadian  owned.  The leader of the NDP would  give the drought stricken  farmers of the Prairies $1.4  billion, would re-establish door  to door delivery of mail to those  presently denied it, etc., etc.  All made extravagant promises. None offered any  reasonable method of paying  for them.  The danger of continuous  overspending seems to escape  the federal politicans. By  monopolizing the capital  markets of Canada with the  need to cover their excessive  spending, they are forcing the  provinces, the municipalities  and industry to borrow in  foreign markets, repaying an  ever increasing premium caused  by inflation resulting from continuous overspending by  government.  With devalued currency the  federal government can repay  the internal debt. But such inflation also devalues savings  and life insurance. It affects all  institutions linked to savings.  When it becomes foolish for  Canadians to save and provide  for the future, then the government will find it necessary to  borrow from the financial centres of the world. The lenders  will look to the security of their  investment and will be little concerned with maintaining social  programs.  During the campaign very little was said about the multistage sales tax. The federal  governmewm has indicated it  intends to reform the existing  sales tax system.  Although the government has  said it will set a rate that is  revenue neutral, when you look  at their past performance, the  question arises as to how long it  will stay that way. The federal  sales  tax  rate  has  increased  steadily in recent years.  The rate of 9 percent in effect  from November 1978 to October 1984 has been increased  for many manufactured and ii i.  ported goods to nearly 14 perr  cent.  When we look at the performance of some European countries that have adopted the  multi-stage sales tax, the future  is not bright. Denmark adopted  the system in 1967, imposing a  tax of 10 percent.  By 1987 it was 22 percent.  France started in 1968 with a tax  of 13.6 percent and by 1987 it  was 18.6 percent.  Britain started in 1973 with 10  percent and by 1987 it was 15  percent.  There is no question that if  the value added tax is imposed,  it will be a major source of in-:  come for the government. It will  be easy to increase revenue by"  increasing the tax without  bothering to cut back on spending. Inflation will accelerate. aaaaaajaa  Coast News, November 21,1988  Letters to the Editor  Politicians spend, citizens struggle  Editor:  It appears from letters to the  editor in recent issues of our  local newspapers that there are  a great many disillusioned  British Columbians, in particular Sunshine Coast residents. I am therefore encouraged to use my right as a citizen  living in a democratic society to  voice my opinion and disgust re  the policies of 'all' levels of  government as it affects our  lives here on the Sunshine  Coast.  Let us start with our 'right' to  vote. I noted a recent editorial  in the press, that people who  reside in our area, who wish to  leave during an election month/year must travel to Vancouver Island in order to exercise their 'right' to vote in the  advance polls.  I was infuriated to learn that  yet again, we in this district, are  being penalized because of our  location. We not only suff'r  with ridiculous cuts in winter  ferry schedules, no late evening  schedules at all if we wish to  spend an evening in Vancouver,  increases for ridiculous over-  height and extra length on our  private vehicles, strikes which  cause an increase in price to our  essentials for living, we also  now have an added insult of an  additional cost to cast a vote!  It is no wonder that most of  the average working people I  have spoken to are fed up with  the treatment we receive from  all levels of government.  In the 24 years of residing on  the Sunshine Coast I have yet to  see: Highway 101 improved,  better ferry service 'all' months  of the year, consideration of  our isolation, all promised over  the last 24 years by elected  governments.  So why vote? Why place yet  another person/s in a position  to do 'nothing' about our incredibly high cost of living,  'nothing' to better our link with  the rest of British Columbia, to  'not' produce a comfortable  tourism policy for our area, and  to 'not' do anything about the  incredible high rate of  unemployment causing our  young people to leave their  communities.  So here we are in an election  year, both federal and local. We  have been asked to reinstate a  mayor who has done nothing  for the over-burdened taxpayer  struggling to make ends meet  without ridiculous inflated cost  of living and even higher rate of  unemployment. We have a  prime minister wanting our vote  so he can sell out our country  and heritage for a price that will  only line the pockets of the  Epitomize mindless thinking  Editor:  Of all the rhetoric, written  and oral, that has been spewed  at us for the past seven weeks,  two letters appearing in the  Coast News epitomize the  mindless thinking that seriously  jeapordizes the future of our  great country.  The first was from J.C.  Stuart who proudly proclaimed  he may vote for the first time in  his 33 years. Judging by the  calibre of his letter it has undoubtedly taken him that long  to figure out how to put an X in  a little square.  He no doubt had trouble colouring within the lines in his  final year of school. He proudly  proclaims himself to be master  of apathy and abrogates his  obligation as a citizen to exercise his sacred franchise.  It was just such apathy that  threw the magnificent country  of Czechoslovakia into the communist yoke when only 28 percent of the population turned  out to vote in 1948. Forty years  later the country is still struggling under the oppression that  has destroyed the economy and  culture of a great nation.  People like J.C. Stuart are  very, very scary.  The second was from Lome  Blain who threatens us all with  going to blazes in a handbasket  if we don't vote NDP. We happen to think just as strongly  about this country as you do  Mr. Blain, but we would not  have the effrontery to dictate to  others how they should vote.  Mr. Blain is a typical example  of the pseudo-Socialists who  preach their gospel of unionism,  nationalism and anti-capitalism  from any soap box while driving  around in a $30,000 Japanese  car and taking their vacations in  Europe, Hawaii, Mexico and  the U.S.A. that they so roundly  condemn.  How convenient that they ignore the Canadian investments  in the U.S.A. by the likes of  Robert Campeau who now  owns one of the largest retail  chains in the U.S.A. Feel free to  vote as you wish, Mr. Blain, but  don't threaten us if we don't  happen to agree with your half-  baked philosophy.  Those of us who have seen  Socialism at work first hand  and those struggling to free  themselves from it at great cost  deeply resent your convoluted  logic on behalf of a perennial  loser.  J.D. Dickson  Freedom to walk beaches  is confirmed by Victoria  Editor:  A few months ago, I had an  argument with the holder of a  foreshore lease on the Sunshine  Coast concerning his claim he  had the right to stop people  from crossing the section of  beachfront below the high water  mark for which he held the  leasehold rights.

The intent of the bylaw is to Implement the first major  review of the Official Community Plan, which was  established in 1985 by the adoption of Bylaw No. 520. The  proposed bylaw may be perused at the Municipal Offices  during normal business hours.  Rob Buchan  MUNICIPAL PLANNER & APPROVING OFFICER  by Penny Fuller  Most people on the Sunshine  Coast don't know the difference  between a salmon berry bush  and a salaal bush, according to  local Forest Advisory Committee member Dave Bakewell.  Because of the lack of  knowledge and understanding,  Bakewell supports the concept  of a demonstration forest which  was presented to the committee  the evening of November 16 by  Economic Development Officer  (EDC) Bill Moore.  "We have probably the biggest chance of resource conflict  on this Sunshine Coast than  anywhere else in the province",  Bakewell commented. "The  economic base in forestry will  be eroded if we don't start to get  people interested right now."  Moore's concept involves  taking a portion of land in the  Hillside area and developing it  as a forest which demonstrates  good forestry practices.  Members of the committee  were very supportive of the  idea. But the B.C. Forest Service has some reservations on  the location that Moore is sug-  geting for the project.  He told the meeting he felt  locating a demonstration forest  in the same area as Howe Sound  Pulp and Paper, and the proposed forest industrial park,  would make the area "a  showcase for the forest industry."  Representatives from the  forest service who met with  him, however, felt there are better locations on the Sunshine  Coast for that kind of development.  The question, Moore said,  could probably be settled if the  committee would clearly define  what they meant by a 'demonstration forest'. Everybody, he  explained, seemed to have a different concept of what that term  means, including different people within the forest service.  Moore's definition was presented to the committee for con-  sideration. It read, "A  demonstration forest is a forest  area designated, managed and  operated for the purpose of in-  Get set...  to make a  SPLASH &  WITH  antze^  Holiday  cruisewear  has arrived  ���BATHING SUITS  ���COTTON JUMPSUITS  ��� SHORTS  ���JACKETS  ��� BLOUSES  ��� SKIRTS  ��� ETC.  ��>ilk& $c late  'M.

Moore suggested the Forestry  Advisory Committee might  consider managing such a project, and coordinating volunteer  participation in its development.  Committee members agreed  to visit the proposed site on a  field trip and evaluate exactly  what kind of land they would be  dealing with.  Pipeline  officer  appointed  British Columbia Energy  Minister Jack Davis, November  4, announced the appointment  of Robin Abercrombie as the  coordinator of the Vancouver  Island Gas Pipeline Project.  "Mobilizing all the resources  necessary to get gas to island  customers by 1990 will be a big  job," said Davis. "Abercrom-  bie's role will be as a facilitator,  bringing together the people  and procedures which will keep  the project on track."  Abercrombie is a former  pipeline company executive  with wide experience in overseeing major energy projects, including the Trans-Quebec and  Maritimes pipeline. He was  special advisor to the B.C.  government in its 1983 evaluation of the Vancouver Island  pipeline proposals.  "Robin Abercrombie's experience with major pirieline  projects, and his knowledge of  the Vancouver Island Project in  particular, put him in an ideal  position to help," said the  minister.  Abercrombie's appointment  follows the funding agreement  announced between B.C. and  Ottawa in September. The formal project application from  Pacific Coast Energy Corporation to build the land and  underwater transmission  pipeline is expected in the next  few weeks.  After review by federal and  provincial agencies, the application will be the basis of B.C.  Utilities Commission public  hearings.  1                              '���                                          , m ��aaaaj>  Mi                              a'sp  mmW  ^^^                 rr^ _^  ��� >'$    9  %     .4  <  WVI"''  This unique piece of driftwood is being loaded into a container at  Gibsons Wharf, for shipment to Germany.

The report  indicated there is an acid rain  problem on the Sunshine Coast.  November 16 he brought the  committee up to date on his activities in trying to have the problem addressed by senior government agencies.  Gibson told the committee  that one day after he had made  his presentation here, he flew to  Ottawa. There he ended up doing a similar presentation for  Dr. P.J. Rennie, scientific advisor on forest environment for  the Canadian Forestry Service,  and L.W. Carlson, director of  research coordination and  assessment for the Forest Ser  vice Directorate.  Having seen the presentation,  Dr. Rennie agreed that there appeared to be evidence of ozone  damage and aluminum  mobilization (acute metallic toxicity). He suggested Gibson go  to the Victoria branch of the  Canadian Forestry Service and  present his information there.  Gibson told the committee he  had just returned following thai  advice, and hoped to meet with  Dr. Allan Van Sickle, a  foremost expert in acidic  deposition, soon. Gibson hopes  Dr. Van Sickle will agree the  situation warrants investigation.  Should he decide a visit to  this area would be informative,  Gibson agreed to notify  members of the committee so  they could participate in any  field trip.  The Christmas Gift with everything.

WRONG NUMBER  If you read We Remember  When in last week's issue of this  paper you'll have noted that a  house on Oldershaw Road in  Roberts Creek burned down  because the Gibsons Fire  Department was called and they  went to Aldersprings Road. It's  amazing how many people  don't know Roberts Creek has  its own Fire Department, even  with all the times it's mentioned  in this column for instance.  Please make sure you know  what fire protection area you  live in. The departments cannot  go out of their area and leave  their own taxpayers unprotected  so don't waste your time and  theirs phoning the wrong  number when the time comes: it  could mean losing your house.

The struggles for self-government by the Sechelt Indian  Band have been successful. One of the objectives we  fought for was to be able to enter into Economic Development projects and become a resource to this country. That  starts right here at home.  We look forward to working co-operatively with Mayor  Tom Meredith and his council on projects which will be of  mutual benefit to our two municipal districts and the entire  ���Sechelt Indian Band  Sunshine Coast.  November 19, 1988 Coast News, November 21,1988  Pender Patter  900 attend Pender bingo  by Myrtle Winchester, 883-9302  Last Thursday night, about  90 people attended the Pender  Harbour Community Club  Bingo, the first one held in a  few months, due to a series of  complications.  While Bingo was suspended,  the community hall floor was  completely re-done, and that,  combined with the newly-  renovated washrooms, makes  the hall look like a new  building. Proceeds from Bingo  make these kinds of projects  possible, so support your community by enjoying an evening  of legalized, government-  sanctioned gambling.  One of the new faces at  Bingo, Sandy Nuyens, is probably still grinning after winning the full-card jackpot of  $342.50. She had a good night,  and, being a good friend, offered to buy me a celebratory  drink afterwards.  Sandy is a bit of a compulsive  gambler, and so grabbed three  bucks' worth of pull-tabs at the  Legion. Wouldn't you know it,  she won another $50. Some  people really do have all the  luck.  LEATHER  If you have any leather to be  dry cleaned that you want back  by the Christmas and New  Year's holiday, Mary at Ken-  mar Draperies asks that you  please bring it in to her by  November 23.

The drawing depicts an early-  century-styled building, designed to compliment the historical  Rockwood Lodge which is  shown nearby.  The proposed hall would be  located at the end of Cowrie  Street on the corner of the  Rockwood Lodge property.  This location would "create a  sense of place and importance,"  says a letter from the Coast Arc-  chitectural Group, the firm  responsible for the drawing.  Sechelt Mayor Bud Koch  said, "The location would provide a focal point for the village  centre and a fitting conclusion  to Cowrie Street."  The building would be ap  proximately 6500 square feet  with a progression of elevations,  gardens and an entry from  Cowrie Streeet.  "I believe we could have it  built for around $300,000 and  we would not have to go into  debt for it. I'm positive the hall  could be constructed without  changing the tax configuration," said Koch.  The proposed hall would  have an expected life of around  25 years.  Halfmoon Bay Happenings  Auxiliary planning  annual bazaar  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  The Halfmoon Bay branch of  St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliary is  working hard preparing for the  annual bazaar. This is always a  good one with lots of fine home  baking and beautifully made  crafts.  Just in time for Christmas  buying. There will be a raffle  with excellent prizes and your  support is always needed for  this event, with all proceeds going to help equip the hospital  and add to patient care.  It will be in the Trail Bay  Mall on December 1 from 10  am to 2 pm, so don't forget to  mark this date on your  calander.  CELEBRATIONS  Tickets have already started  moving for the Welcome Beach  Community Association Christmas dinners. There will be two  this year, one on the Friday  afternoon of December 9 for  the benefit of those who don't  like night driving.  Even though this is earlier in  the day, it will still be a full  delicious Christmas dinner and  there will be carol singing and  fun. Price is $7.50.  The Saturday night of  December 10 promises to be the  usual sell-out evening where you  have a fine meal as well as dancing and entertainment.  This one is $15 per person  and reservations may be made  by calling either Marg Vorley at  885-9032 or Marg Buckley at  885-3305. Do it now!  FIRE REPORT  Hope I don't speak too soon,  but it is good to report that  things have been very quiet  recently for our local fire  department. Usually this is the  time of year when people start  lighting their fireplaces and  when chimney fires are fairly  common and frightening.  Could be that our local  residents have become more  aware of the danger and are  having their chimneys cleaned  regularly. Keep up the good  work and keep the firemen free  of calls.  GET WELL WISHES  Reports are that Jack Mercer  of Secret Cove is recovering  quite well from a hip operation.  He will be in hospital in Vancouver for a spell and will then  be transferred to the G. Strong  clinic for therapy. This means  that he will not be home for  some time, so if you feel like  sending Jack a greeting I'm sure  he will be happy to know that  you and all of us are thinking  about him and wish him a  speedy recovery.

The  response to the call for lights  was excellent. Some people even  sent in donations of money.  Also, a big thank you to the  people from the Beachcombers  who donated a lot of lights.  This then is the plan: On  December 2 at 7 pm from the  verandah of Rockwood Lodge  the lights will be switched on.  Students from Chatelech  High School Band will supply  the music for the occasion and  afterwards, people from the  Association for the Handicapped will be serving hot  chocolate. It is the hope of the  society that this will become an  annual tradition in Sechelt.  FRIENDSHIP CENTRE  The Friendship Centre on Inlet Avenue is having a 50/50  draw all this month. So far,  ticket sales have been less than  brisk, but Friendship Centre  president Louise Dufresne, is  optimistic that things will speed  up nearer to the draw date  which is December 1 at noon.  A reminder that donations of  furniture and/or household  items would be greatly appreciated. The person to call is  Louise Dufresne at 885-7217.  You don't often hear of people coming from Hawaii to  Sechelt for a holiday, especially  in chilly November, but that's  exactly what Joe and Sharon  Laa are up to this month. Of  course, when you know they are  visiting their daughter Jay and  son-in-law Leonard McLach-  lan, and their cute-as-a-button  little grandaughter, Caitlin, then  it all makes sense.

The latter two  are what should be foremost in  your mind, since our Christmas  Dinner is only two weeks away  now.

Tickets to this  celebration are $12.50 which ap  pears to be reasonable for the  New Year's Eve get-together.  Further information may be  had by phoning Patty or John  at 885-7792. Again, tickets are  limited due to restricted floor  space in our present hall.  THE 69'ERS  Our singing group has been  active in the immediate past  with performances in Roberts  Creek and North Vancouver.  Members of the group are  reminded that we will be singing  a few songs for the Christmas  Dinner of the Gibsons Day Care  Group again this year, on  December 7, at the Sunshine  Coast Golf and Country Club.  Our performance will start at  1:30 pm.  On December 8 we will be  entertaining our own Branch 69  members at the Sechelt Legion  after our Branch Christmas  Dinner.  CRIBBAGE  Family ties are strong and at  this late stage of our careers it's  good to see a family in harmony. At our Tuesday afternoon card session in our hall  Walter Fenwick was awarded  the booby prize and spouse  Muriel walked off with top  money. That's what you call  togetherness.  ELECTIONS  At our branch election of officers the following slate was  elected to oversee branch affairs  for 1989.  President, Mike Timms; First  Vice-President, John Miller; Second Vice-President, Adele  deLange; Secretary, Betty Calli;  Treasurer, Viv Pallot; Directors  - Tillie White, Micky Cornwell,  Bill Butler, Ted Farewell, Larry  Grafton.  Unfortunately the slate was  elated by acclamation. Let's  see if we can't do better than  that next year.  ANNUAL MEETING  The highlight of our annual  meeting which followed our  general meeting last Thursday  was the healthy state of branch  finances as generated by the  hard work of the branch, barring Expo Legacy money. There  were some forty odd volunteers  at work in the hall last Thursday  morning, all with one goal in  mind. Were you there?

The decision was made after complaints were received concerning a Prawn Road resident who  has been restricting public access to the water.  The same resident has also been accused of cutting loose  boats which were moored in this area. One angry neighbour  complained to council November 16 that his $40,000 boat  had been found on the rocks.  Difficulty in solving this situation has arisen due to problems in determining the Prawn Road resident's property  line. Council is hoping the solution lies in surveying the right-  of-way.  Elves' support  Sechelt Council has declared December 1 to 7, Elves Club  Week in support of the Elves Telethon which is Saturday,  December 3 on Cable 11.  The telethon, which is an annual event at Christmas time,  will raise funds for Christmas hampers for needy families. In  the past, mayors and aldermen have manned the phones, accepting pledges from the community.  Police and Fire Departments have also been heavily involved. One year, RCMP slowed traffic on Highway 101 by  holding out firemen's hats for cash donations.  Keep part of the dollars you spend...

Gibsons  plan gets  support  by Nancy Argyle  The Town of Gibsons has  received regional support for a  unique plan to reclaim the old  Stewart Road dump site for experimental tree growth studies.  A letter from Gibsons Municipal Council, received by the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) November 17,  outlines a plan to clean up the  old site and plant a small tree  farm utilizing treated sanitary  sludge for the growth studies.  "The resulting trees could be  utilized by our respective Parks  Departments for decorator  plantings or roadside regenerations of other sites," says the  letter.  "This use of the land will undoubtedly be of benefit to both'  communities and more environmentally conscious than the current eyesore," the letter notes.  Although the plan has been  recommended to receive the  support of the SCRD, there was  discussion over concerns regarding the protection of the site  from people still using it as a  dumping ground.  "Even though the site is no  longer a dump, it's incredible  what people will do to gain entry. It is an almost impossible  task to protect it from vandalism," said Director Jim  Gurney.  During discussion, it was suggested trenches could be dug  around the site to restrict access  by four wheel drive vehicles.  However, motorcycles could  continue to be a problem.  Director Gordon Wilson  noted personnel were planning  on an almost constant patrol of  the site to discourage any intruders.  "Personally, I support any  plan that would reclaim the land  for a tree farm," he added.  The Public Utilities Committee has recommended that a letter addressing some potential  concerns but registering support  for the plan be sent to the Town  of Gibsons.  Judging by the large crowd shown here, the annual Christmas bazaar and bike sale was a great success  for the Order of the Eastern Star. The event was held at the Roberts Creek Masonic Hall November 19.  ���Vern Klliuit pholo  George    in    Gibsons  A teller of tall tales  by George Cooper, 886-8520  When a copy of the Kamloops Daily News' Fishing Tall  Tales of July this year was  brought to me by Barry Friesen  of West Sechelt, he could not  remember who it was had asked  him to deliver it.  But a photo of Al Pajak,  former resident here and  member of the Gibsons Legion,  receiving a $100 voucher for  fishing equipment as third prize  in the tall tales contest, cleared  that mystery.  Pajak, who goodness knows  has had years of practice telling  yarns, got his prize for the  following in condensed form.  "One summer when I was a  teenager and working in the  Rockies wilderness as a rodman  for a surveyor, our canoe was  wrecked and we lost all our gear  except an axe, knife, frypan,  and a glass jar full of used razor  blades. The blades we were bringing out to throw in the city  dump so as not to mess up the  wilderness.  "We walked and walked trying to survive on blueberries,  but the old surveyor played out  and had to rest a day or two.  "I (that's young Pajak) sat  around staring into the pool at  the foot of a waterfall and watched dozens of trout idling in  the water below. Those trout  boiled to the surface when I  threw some twigs into the water.  Boy, they were hungry.  "On an impulse I threw the  razor blades in and those trout  snapped up every one of them  before the blades could sink an  inch.  "Without the word of a lie  (says Al) most of those fish cut  their own throats and floated  right up to me.  "We sure filled up on fried  fish, smoked the remainder and  got out to civilization without  starving. And this tale is true  because you see we're alive to  tell the tale and those fish that  survived the blades became  known as the cutthroat trout,  the anglers' delight, thanks to  me."  Al Pajak, by the way, was the  host at the Lac le Jeune provincial park this past summer, the  paper giving his address as  Kamloops.  That story of his was third,  remember. The other two can  perhaps be repeated some time  in the coming months.  One more fish story, not a  prize one, from the same  publication - now that we're  started...  "In reply to an angler's boast  of catch of 15 pound rainbow  somewhere in the Chilcotin,  another told of a recent catch of  his own. It seems he hooked  into something that pulled so  hard and steady on his line he  had to reel in inch by half inch.  Long minutes later he hauled  out a brass hurricane lantern  still lit.  "Can't believe It was still lit,"  says the 15 popnd angler. "No?  Then take 10 pounds or four  and half kilos off your rainbow,  and I'll blow out the light."  YOUTH WORK  Akela Mark Wickson says  the Cubs' recent visit to the Fire  Hall and to Bill Sluis' Fitness  Centre, the B E Fit Bodyworks,  was a very satisfying outing for  them and they wish to express  their gratitude to the firemen  and the people at the centre.  SPEED LIMITS  "After taking note of your  column's warning about speeding to the ferry," says a reader,  "I drove to the ferry the other  morning at exactly the posted  speed. But I was honked at for a  mile or more by a pickup  following me. By the way the  pickup rushed past me at the  terminal turn-off, I guessed it  was someone late for work in  the Port Mellon area."  Another source of despera  tion for early morning drivers  on Marine Drive and the Port  Mellon Highway.  LEGION NEWS  The Ladies' Auxiliary to  Branch 109 will hold their  Christmas bazaar on Saturday,  December 3 from 12 noon to 3  pm.

A  579 Seaview Rd.,  Box 64B  Gibsons, B.C.  886-9551  Newcomers to the Sunshine  Coast will find our soil quite  sandy. Heavy rainfall causes  leaching and soil needs to be  replenished. Take soil tests  before the ground freezes.  Deficiences can be corrected  during winter and early spring.  A light dusting of dolomite lime  now will balance out a high acid  soil level.  Fresh manure of three to six  inches can now be applied to the  resting garden, with a covering  of animal bedding straw, spoiled alfalfa or grass hay. Keep  gathering leaves for the compost and the garden.  The rich nutrients in the  leaves return nitrogen,  phosphorus and potassium to  the soil. Spread on flower and  vegetable plots, start to decompose immediately, or put on the  compost heap with a thin layer  of soil. Cover with a tarp to retain moisture.  Plant early Wakefield Jersey  cabbage seed in protected area,  or cold frame for first spring  crop.  ^WEBBER PHOTOS  TREASURE  PRINTS  Photos on China  Agents For  LOOMIS COURIER SERVICE  886-2947  275 Gower Pt.

Christiansen is enrolled in the Home Care Aid re-entry program at Elphinstone High School. ��� Vera Elliott photo  A position paper on B.C.  forestry policies, written by Dr.  Philip Haddock for the Federation of B.C. Naturalists, was  presented to the Sunshine Coast  Forestry Advisory Committee,  November 16 by Vince Brace-  well. He explained he brought it  forward for information purposes only.  "We have to make our feelings known and take a stand on  the development of forests in  this province," he told the  meeting.  Forest industry representative  Dave Bakewell called the report  a "Theoretical, textbook approach to the overall problem  of the forests in B.C." He added that Dr. Haddock approached the subject a 'motherhood  issue' that applies to the whole  province, but the commentary  does not apply in many parts of  the province.  Haddock states in the document, "In our view, the forest  industry as now constituted cannot be expected to either properly toe the mark financially to  assure the proper care of the  total forest resource, nor can  they be counted on to take the  long view and invest in the  future of the forest land and all  its myriad values. Their bottom  line assures a myopic and narrow perspective."  The B.C. Forest Service, he  says, "has had a tremendous  and almost impossible job..."  with grossly inadequate financing and staffing.  This position paper for the  Federation of B.C. Naturalists  outlines eight specific things  they would like to see developed  in the B.C. forest policy:  1. The preservation of adequate samples of old growth,  virgin forest stands.  2. Recognition of forest values other than as a source of  timber.  3. Support for improved  silviculture practices.  4. Better management of logging practices on steep slopes  and at high elevations  throughout the province.  5. A tenure system which  does not encourage a monopoly  of a few giant corporations.  6. Regular public input.  7. More re-investment into  reforestation, stand tending and  forest protection.  8. Better overall planning of  harvesting and regeneration.  The committee discussed the  position paper and accepted it  for information purposes. It  was pointed out by some  members that Dr. Haddock appeared to be approximately five  years behind in his information.  Bracewell thanked the committee for its input and said he  would take the comments back  to Dr. Haddock.

It is 2 am  and time for patrolman Powers  to make his hourly report. Lou  and Cox nudge him to the  phone at gunpoint. "No funny  business," warns Cox, "or  you'll be one sorry cop!"  Powers, grim-faced but  visibly straining to sound  casual, talks briefly with his  sergeant. Then he is hustled to a  chair, handcuffed and gagged.  Beside him eyes bulging with  fear and surprise, the old watchman sits similarly restrained.  The two watch helplessly as  Herb and his cronies, their faces  subtly altered by false moustaches, beards and theatrical  makeup, set about their work.  Cox sets the stage by severing  the electrical connections he has  been studying so assiduously for  the past two weeks. The rest is  up to Herb. He removes his  coat and dons a pair of silk  gloves.

This annual award,  given in memory of dancer and  Arts Council Vice-president  Gillian Lowndes, acknowledges  committment to, and innovation in the creative endeavour,  as well as artistic excellence.  Some previous winners have  been Pat Chamberlin, Ken  Dalgleish, Betty Keller and  Maurice Soira.  Robert Jack is a painter who  grew up in Roberts Creek and  has lived most of his life there.  The presentation will be  made by Mrs. Joan Lowndes  and all are welcome to attend  Saturday, November 26 at 2 pm  at the Arts Centre in Sechelt.  FILM CLASSIC  On Wednesday, November  23 at 8 pm a real treat will be offered to Arts Centre film goers  with the screening of the Sergei  Eisenstein film epic, Alexander  Nevsky. This cinematic opera  was made in 1938, a collaboration between the film genius of  Eisenstein and the musical  genius of Sergei Prokofiev. It  was Eisenstein's first sound  film, he conceived it as a 'visual  symphony', feeling that the  music and the 'visual music'  were composed on the same  principle.  Admission is $3.50, $3 for  students  and  seniors  at  the  door.  JURIED SHOW  This is the tenth year that the  Arts Centre's Juried Show has  provided us with a look at our  own artists through the eyes of  an expert adjudicator from  another area. As usual, the  work selected is interesting and  diverse, but if you don't see it  before November 27 you'll have  missed your chance. Gallery  hours are Wednesday to Saturday from 11 to 4 and on Sunday  from 1 to 4; closed Monday and  Tuesday.  quire a lighter pair. He opens  his burglar kit. He is sweating  slightly, for this is the moment  of truth. Should he fail now he  will lose all credibility with his  associates. He hides his nervousness behind his usual imperturbable expression, studies  the safe carefully, and notes  thankfully that it is a fairly  common model. While Herb  plots his moves Doc Redding  and the others stand by to give  any needed assistance.  First the felt padding between  the jamb and the door must be  burned away. Herb accomplishes this with judicious injections of sulphuric acid. While  the fabric disintegrates he  kneads a piece of kitchen soap  to workable consistency. When  the felt is gone Herb applies the  soap to the cracks like a man  puttying a window. He then  bores a small cup, one inch deep  and two inches wide, in the centre of the top crack and moulds  a second cup for the bottom of  the door.  Herb's concentration is  broken momentarily by a sudden commotion behind him.  Powers, perhaps feeling that he  has capitulated too easily, has  begun struggling, stamping his  feet and making guttural grunts  of outrage through the gag. It is  an impotent and futile rebellion  that fetches him a brutal punch  in the face from Cox.  "Dummy up, you!" Cox  growls. "Any more of that and  I'll shoot your toes off!"  Powers wisely subsides into  silence and gives no more trouble.  Herb unhitches from his  shoulder the rubber bag that  contains the nitro. He carefully  withdraws exactly one-sixth of  an ounce into a hypodermic syringe and lets the honeylike fluid  drip into the top cup. Doc Redding watches the bottom one.  With infinite slowness the  volatile liquid seeps along and  down the soap-roofed crevice.  There is nothing to do but wail.  The minute or so it takes seems  like forever. "It's through,"  says Doc Redding at last, and  flattens the bottom cup to prevent the nitro from leaking out.  Herb places a detonating cap  in the upper cup before closing  it and unwinds the extension  wire he has taped to the cap, to  the far side of the room. Meanwhile the others fill a sink, soak  two comforters they have  brought along for the purpose,  and swaddle the rigged safe with  them to muffle the blast.  It is now 2:30 and time for  watchman Muir to make his  rounds. Failure to do this will  automatically trigger the alarm  system. The old man is briefly  released and Lou escorts him at  gunpoint to clock in at the  various stations. Muir is literally  paralyzed with terror and offers  no resistance.

Rhythms of Life  Sagittarians  Pat Forst displays a new piece of pottery influenced by her stay in  England. A display of her work is planned for Show Piece Gallery.  ���John Burnside photo  by Penny Fuller  Student, gypsy, philosopher,  traditional astrology's definition of a Sagittarian. Anyone  born when the Sun was passing  through the sign of Sagittarius  (November 23 to December 21),  will probably recognize the  elements of all three within  themselves. Whatever stage  you're going through, whatever  you're doing, you are constantly driven to explore and understand.  Like the archer's arrow, your  awareness keeps moving, expanding, further and further  from its beginnngs. Your birth  family, old friends, etc. may  think of you as somewhat  strange and possibly a little  crazy, the one who's always off  on some tangent.  Usually, that doesn't bother a  Sagittarian, but if it's causing  you to doubt yourself, relax.  You're not supposed to be  bound by other peoples' limitations. They feel comfortable  with those restrictions, you  don't.  Potter returns from abroad  Gibsons potter, Pat Forst,  has returned from a year's study  in England. She is producing  some new works, some of which  will be seen this week at  Showpiece Gallery in Gibsons.  While her husband was engaged in his teaching exchange  position in South East Essex,  Pat was able to study the  treasures of the great London  galleries.  Courses in painting, drawing,  and sculptural ceramics, taken  in  England,  have broadened  Pat's interests and expression.  These have resulted in some  striking new work which will  soon be seen in local galleries.  Of course, a year in England  means extensive travel not only  within the Isles, but throughout  Europe. The influences of the  continent and particularly  Venice may be evident.  However, .he greatest impressions which Pat retains are  of English sculptors, particularly the works of Barbara Hep-  worth and Henry Moore which  Fiesta planned  in Roberts Creek  ;_*,._ la U��l- 1 > *���  A fiesta is being planned for  Roberts Creek Hall November  26, complete with a Central  American dinner, entertainment  for children and a dance with a  seven-piece Latin salsa band! If  you were at the Fiestas put on  by the Central American Support Committee in past years  with the Salvadorean band  Yolocamba Ita and Igni  Tawanka from Nicaragua, you  know the excitement generated  by the south-of-the-border atmosphere!  This year the hot Latin band  Salsa Brava will be featured  with their exciting rhythms  from the land of the Samba.  Salsa Brava, headed by Chilean  Rodrigo Guillermo, has a horn  section that punctuates it's driving rhythm in what could be  called 'New York' style Latin.  This is a fusion of sophisticated jazz with flowing im-  provisational lines from the  trombone and sax but always  driven by the energetic drum  and percussion sections. It is interesting music for listening and  guaranteed to get you dancing.  The evening in Roberts Creek  Hall will begin with a family  dinner served from 6 to 8 pm.  Entertainment will be featured  at this time with the children in  mind and admission is free to  all.  The dinners will be $5 and at  8 pm the tempo will step up.  Those who have dance tickets  will remain for a real Latin  dance!  The proceeds from this evening go directly to 'Tools For  Peace' to be distributed and used for immediate relief for the  more than 300,000 Nicaragua���  left homeless by Hurricane  Joan. Not only is this a great  opportunity to hear wonderful  music and have a meal with  family and friends, people on  the Sunshine Coast have the opportunity to extend help to a  neighbouring country whose  situation is most desperate.  Get your tickets soon as  previous years have always sold  out. Saturday, November 26,  Roberts Creek Hall, 6 to 8 dinner (pay at door for dinner), 8  to 12 midnight dance tickets are  $8 and are at Talewind Books  and Books 'n Stuff in Sechelt,  Seaview Market in Roberts  Creek, and Coast Book Store in  Gibsons. Children welcome  before 8 pm. No minors after 8  pm.  are prevalent. Visits to the Hep-  worth sculpture garden, and  Henry Moore's estate, were  highlights of the year.  England is the home of many  of the formative potters of this  century. Pat was able to visit  David Leach, Peter Lane and  the pottery of the late Bernard  Leach.  In exchange for these enriching experiences, Pat was able to  leave some of her own  knowledge and experience behind. In April she presented a  slide lecture on B.C. potters to  the Craftsmen Potters Association in London, and to art college groups.  Pat is looking forward to  sharing her experiences through  her creative work and through  meetings with local craftspeople  and artists.  Part of what may be confusing to friends and family is that  you leap enthusiastically into  things, head off after some  obscure goal, and six months  down the line you've switched  directions and are only something else.  The problem is that they expected you to reach some sort of  end point, or fail and experience  that sense of failure. You may  seem to them to be fickle or  flighty, not taking your goals  seriously.  It might be easier for people  to understand and accept your  need to explore if you explain to  them that the destination is not  really important to you, it's the  trip itself that gives you fulfilment. The process, itself, is the  goal.  This is a somewhat foreign  concept to the Judeo-Christian  world, whose doctrine is one of  the few, which has fixed a  definite path to God and has a  specific, often concrete, destination - heaven.  Most other religions and  cultures share an element of  spirituality which involves simply 'being in the moment'.  To experience each moment  in life as complete unto itself,  and to bring to each moment  the ability to draw every drop of  experience from it, that is your  talent.  Draw on it. Cultivate it in  yourself. Let others absorb  themselves in far off goals,  while you enjoy the process.  That is what brings you  beyond the role of student, gypsy or philosopher, to become  the 'spiritual warrior', behaving  with integrity and chosing 'right  action' totally based on what is  happening at that point in time  and unencumbered by past or  future.

Imagine my surprise when, upon inquiring  where one could take guests for dinner, the Creekhouse was  recommended.  We arrived in the pouring rain and were immediately  ushered into the warmth and welcome that can only be  achieved by a fireside setting. So far, so good. Then came the  menus���French���this was either going to be very good, or  very bad, depending on the chef.  We were informed by smiling, soft spoken hostess Barbara  who seemed right at home in the quietly elegant dining  room that the 'Special' that night was King Crab Legs in a  wine sauce and then left us to contemplate the menus. As  soon as the menus were closed���and not before���Barbara  appeared, to take our order. Our lady guest chose 'Saumon a  l'estragon' (a salmon dish prepared with tarragon, wine and  cream). The gentleman chose an hors d'oeuvre of steamed  clams with wine, garlic and parsley and the 'Special'. My  mother and I decided to find out just how good the chef was.  We both ordered the 'Filet montpellier', one medium well  and one medium rare to see if there was a difference.  The meal was a delight. The clams heaped high and succulent, the salmon dish looking like an Oriental watercolour  with its muted salmon shades and bold strokes of dark tarragon. And the filets were perfect! Over an inch high and exactly as ordered, they could be cut with a fork and practically  melted in your mouth.  Chef Yvan could easily have found employment in the fine  establishments of Los Angeles or Montreal, we are so glad he  chose the Sunshine Coast.  Average meal prices quoted do not include liquor.

"We even have men who are  under 35, but they want to play  -Bob Casselman-  oldtime hockey style. That  means no body-checking,  no  slap shots and no fighting,"  says Jim Gray, a member of the  Suncoast Breakers Oldtimers  Hockey Club.  Oldtimers hockey is not  highly competitive. Instead, the  emphasis is on having fun and  enjoying the sport.  "It's a different kind of atmosphere. You don't have to  prove your NHL material,"  says Gray.  "We don't play the same  team very often, so we don't accumulate any grudges against  them. Besides, that wouldn't be  in the spirit of the game," he  adds.  However, there is still a fair  bit of skill required to play  oldtimers hockey along with a  USED BUILDING SUPPLIES  Quality, used lumber, bricks, windows, lights, plumbing, etc.  P A ��� USED BUILDING MATERIALS  11947 Tannery Rd., Surrey  MONDAY-SATURDAY SM-1311  l We also buy used building materials   Reference: Point Atkinson For skookumchuk Narrowi km tiv.wmirt,  n-.-.n- at-r.^.-ri T!��,��� plus 5 min lor each fl.of rlaa,  Pacific Standard Time        ,������ ? m���,_, ���_t, n. oi fan  Time To  WINTERIZE  Your Boat & R.V.  winter storage  on fenced premises  power & water on siie  BOAT HAULING  f\ HARBOUR VIEW MARINE,,,. ��.,,., o......   ��86-2231 A  Gibsons  Swimming Pool  WELCOME BACK'  MONDAY &  WEDNESDAY  Early Bird  Aqua Fil  Ease Me In  Noon Swim  Lessons  Swim Fil  6:30a.m. ���  9:00 a.m  10:00a. m  11:30a. m  3:30 p.m.  7:30pm  30 a.m.  00 a.m.  00a.m,  00 p.m  30p.m  30 p.m  9:30am,  10:30a. m.

"It's  also a tremendous sport for  fitness and, I'm sure, a good  way to relieve stress," notes  Gray.  Many oldtimers have returned to the game after hanging up  their skates 15 to 20 years ago.  They say they like the different  attitude towards hockey and  feel this makes a statement  about the stress endured in  minor league.  "I feel the young kids are  forced to be too competitive  and they are burning out at an  early age in hockey," says  Gray.  Perhaps minor league hockey  could learn from the popularity  of oldtimers hockey.  On the Sunshine Coast, there  are two COHA registered clubs,  the Suncoast Breakers and the  Sechelt Old Wrecks, as well as  numerous other groups that get  together regularly.  If anyone is interested in pursuing oldtimers hockey, Gray  suggests contacting the Sunshine Coast Arena for more information.  Sealions  lose  momentum  On Sunday, November 13 the  Sunshine Coast Sealions  PeeWee team travelled to Coquitlam to play the Wildcats.  Ryan Dempster scored the  game's opening touchdown on  a 40 yard end sweep. Dempster  then converted the touchdown.  The Sealions outplayed the  Wildcats in the first half and  lead the football game 8-2.  In the second half the  Sealions turned the football  over four times on fumbles and  missed kick-off returns.  Momentum changed sides and  the Sealions lost the B.C.  quarter final game 34-8.  Coach Groenke expressed  disappointment over the loss,  however, was satisfied with the  overall performance of the  team.  "We had a great year  finishing fifth out of 19 teams,  however, we could not get the  job done in the second half;  good luck to the Coquitlam  Wildcats in their pursuit of the  provincial championships. I felt  the Sealions gave it 100 percent  and there is always next year."  There has been a push by the  National Football Association  to raise the PeeWee ages from  10-11 to 11-12 year olds for next  year. This is to stay consistant  nationally.  The Sealions Football Banquet will be held Wednesday,  November 30 at 6 pm at Sechelt  Elementary School.  Great Season, players. See  you next year. The teams in  town now know where Sechelt  is!!

Mike Ryan (left) and Pat Cromie proudly display their Oldtimers  Hockey Club's first national win trophy. Their club, the Suncoast  Breakers, recently won the 1988 COHA National Lumberjack  Classic in Vancouver. Great play, guys! -Nancy Argyi* photo  Breakers take  Lumberjack Classic  by Jim Grey  The Suncoast Breakers  Oldtimers hockey club spent an  exciting three days in Vancouver this past weekend, winning for the first time the COHA  National Lumberjack Classic.  Teams from all over Western  Canada, but from B.C.  primarily, took part in this  mammoth three-day event.  With close to 100 teams involved at 15 Vancouver and  area arenas, as well as B.C.  Place Stadium, the event was a  major function.  The Breakers began the  tourney in fine fashion, cruising  to identical 8-2 wins over the  Coquitlam Ambassadors and  the Rainier Mountain Men.  Rookie oldtimer Steve  Feenstra had a field day in his  first tournament, scoring four  goals in his first ever game. In  the final game of the round  robin format, the Breakers ran  into an older and more experienced hockey team in the  Surrey Stampeders.  While the Breakers were less  experienced, they hung in the  game with exceptional goalten-  ding by netminder Ed Berinstein. However, the Breakers  simply could not beat the  Stampeder goalie who stopped  everything they threw at him,  including a penalty shot.  Final score, 2-0, Surrey. The  Breakers' excellent plus/minus  record sent them into the finals,  as the team with the overall  fourth best record.  It was then on to meet the  Burnaby Grizzlies. Gord  Pollock, Mike Ryan and Brett  McGillivray provided the offence. Doug Smith and Pete  Rigby were standouts on the  blue line in a 4-2 win for a berth  in their first national final.  It was to be another Coquitlam team, the Shifty-Fifties  who were the opponents in the  finals.  Another strong team performance by the Breakers had  them celebrating their first ever  final win. Rod Bodmer, Pat  Chromie, Bill Ahrens and  Feenstra on offence, and Rand  Rudland and George Croteau  with their best games of the  tournament, led the Breakers to  a 6-2 win.  After the final, the Shifty-  Fifties immediately invited the  Breakers to their April tournament, having thoroughly enjoyed the penalty-free and  gentlemenly conduct of the final  with the Breakers.  That's what the spirit of old-  timers hockey is all about.  Well done, Suncoast  Breakers! Next tournament up  for the Breakers is the North  Vancouver Rec Centre Old-  timers Tournament on  December 2, 3, and 4. Good  Luck Breakers.  Sportsmen's dinner  is postponed  While there appears to be an  enormous amount of enthusiasm towards the planned  'First Annual Sportsmen's Dinner', the Suncoast Breakers  have decided they will postpone  the event until the last week in  February.  The club had hoped it would  be able to get between 150 and  200 sports enthusiasts to take  part in the $1000 reverse draw  dinner   and   drinks   evening.  While there were easily that  many who expressed an interest  in going, just too many tickets  'A   OUR SINCERE   ^*  w      THANKS     m\*  in Mik,' Rendleman ol Renin < nm ,<���,,- _n_  Andrew rurenne ol Turennp Concrete fo,  kindly lending llu-ir Irtuks for ou, lUCCOllful  A���l,f.ikt's coune.

So it was decided to host the  evening at a later date, possibly  in conjunction with the annual  Suncoast Cup Tournament.  Loads of prizes were donated  locally. These were certainly appreciated and it is hoped that  they will continue to support the  Breakers and Minor Hockey in  their future venture, said a club  spokesperson.  "We would also like to thank  the proprietors of the Sunshine  Lodge in Gibsons who offered  our head table guests free lodging for their stay. That is typical  of the community spirit here on  the Sunshine Coast...if only we  could get our sportsmen to  commit themselves to what  could be an exciting and fun-  filled evening.  "Look for us in February.  We will be ready again!"  Pre-Christmas Sale  3 SEASPORT SCUBA  ADVENTURE THROUGH EDUCATION  6 AM* 6PM  7DAYS/WK. 5567 Dolphin St. Sechelt 885-9830  Capacity crowds  fill the arena  by Nancy Argyle  Capacity crowds have been  turning out for public skating at  the Sunshine Coast Arena lately  with 352 paid admissions  recorded during one skate session alone.  "Over 1500 people have been  coming through the doors every  week and that number does not  include spectators," says arena  manager, Vicki Speck.  The arena is now 16 years  old. A ft* years ago, there was  concern over whether the area  could support such an arena.  Save the Arena committees  were formed to help make the  arena a viable operation. Now,  ice time is at a premium.  "There is a current upward  trend in recreation in general.  Studies that come across my  desk show people are working  shorter work weeks and have a  better economic situation. That  means they have the time and  money to afford some recreation," Speck says.  "1 know that registrations  here for minor hockey and  figure skating are up significantly. The clubs are purchasing five  to six more hours of ice time per  week than they did for the  previous year," she added.  The use of the arena has been  so successful that there has been  a $14,000 reduction in its deficit  over the last 11 months, Sechelt  Council learned November 16.  "The average deficit for  arenas in B.C. is between 55 to  60 percent. The projected 1989  deficit for the Sunshine Coast  Arena is between 35 to 40 percent," Speck says.  Alderman Mike Shanks also  reported to council that a past  investment in repairing an old  piece of Zamboni ice making/cleaning equipment had  paid off.  "The new Zamboni broke  down. So while it is down for  repairs, the arena is using the  old one," says Shanks.  The old Zamboni happens to  be an antique with 1932 Willy's  Jeep running gear.  "It's worth it to come out  and see this one work since the  new Zamboni are completely  covered. On this old one, you  can actually see how it works,"  says Speck.  According to Alderman  Shanks, the only thing lacking  at the arena is an audience.  "There are commercial  hockey games most Friday  nights and Saturdays, but few  spectators. I would like to encourage more people to come  out and enjoy a free game,"  says Shanks.  "If this arena continues to be  so successful, we may need to  install another sheet of ice in a  few years," he added.  * CASTUftOCK  KENNELS  Highway 101, Roberts Creek   885-9840  Boarding & (rooming  No animals will be accepted withoul current  vaccination records.

I will.  I will consider no alternatives. It took a couple of  months after the diagnosis to  rekindle my basic optimism.  Looking forward in anticipation is part of me. Of course,  this part came back.  I don't always think about  MS, although I don't sleep well.  My arms and hands tend to fall  asleep at night. This is new, and  I awake sure that I am paralyzed.  It frightens me every night,  every time it happens. I don't  know when symptoms will  come back, how they will present themselves and to what  degree.  I'm hoping it will be years  and years, maybe never. My  doctor in Vancouver gives encouragement.  She says that MS statistics  don't reflect all the people who  have had MS for years, have  never been bothered much by it,  and consequently have remained undiagnosed. Surveys don't  include them.  Doctors seem to be diagnosing MS more readily now - better tests, different tests, I suppose.  A thought came to me as I  wrote. I would like to be me in  20 years, for just an instant.  I wouldn't need a mirror or  to be there long. I'd only need  to feel how I feel.  How will my eyesight be and  my mobility? And while I'm  there I'll see if I can find out if  we have another child.  That would be fun.  Sechelt  jobs 5  by Nancy Argyle  Five fortunate individuals  will be employed at Sechelt for  the next seven months thanks to  the hard work of Gail Sangster  and a federal grant of $65,240.  Sangster, manager of the  Sechelt Chamber of Commerce,  put together a job development  proposal in which five people  would be trained and given job  experience in the tourism field.  "I wanted to give people  something more than just a job  for a few weeks. I wanted to  give them skills which they  could then use later to develop a  career," she said.  Successful applicants for this  program will receive training in  micro-computers, marketing,  travel counselling, tourism and  some bookkeeping. Training  sessions will be conducted at  Rockwood Lodge.  "Those people hired will also  be given a lot of experience. For  example, five weeks will be  spent working with the Marsh  Society learning how to make a  topographical map and working  on the marsh."  "Another four weeks will be  spent cultivating a native plant  garden for the Sechelt Arts Centre. The garden, when finished,  will be a tourist attraction,"  said Sangster.  A large portion of the  trainee's time will be used at  various accommodation locations along the Sunshine Coast  where they will be learning all  about tourism from chambermaids to reservation agents.  "I really hope when the program ends, these people will  have gained job experience and  training that will allow them to  pursue other job opportunities  in the tourism field," added  Sangster.  fc  For all your  Satellite Needs  Call MOONRAKEH  ELECTRONICS  883-8103  Capacity  audience  by Rose Nicholson  Edith Iglauer Daly read from  her book Fishing With John to  capacity audience last Friday  night at the Arts Centre.  John Daly, a fisherman and  resident of Garden Bay for  nearly 30 years, was well known  for his passionate interest in a  variety of causes, his intensely  interesting (and at times  undecipherable) letters, and his  original approach to everything  from fishing to cooking to  politics.  Iglauer, war correspondent,  staff writer for the New Yorker  and author of four books, married Daly in 1974 and went  fishing with him on his troller  the Morekelp until his death in  1979.  Her fresh view of the uniqueness of the B.C. coastal life  had the audience chuckling at  things that most take for  granted.  Iglauer payed tribute to her  editor and publisher, Howard  White of Harbour Publishing.  "My writer friends in New  York," she said, "cried when I  told them of the care and consideration 1 get from Howie  White. They don't make editors  like that any more."  ecia  Lose 16 Pounds  by Christmas  Pre-Christmas Special:  SAVE U5 on a  4 WEEK PACKAGE  ���Don't Let Another���  Week Go By  Our dieters lose an average of  11 to 16 lbs. in just four weeks.

Coast News, November 21,1988  To acquire lot 48  Sechelt to aid  Marsh Society  by Nancy Argyle  Guest speaker Pam Hawthorne, Director of Vancouver New Play  Centre and 10 year driving force behind Ihe building of The Waterfront Theatre, spoke candidly and eloquently about the spiritual,  cultural and social benefits which a theatre can bring to a community at the Annual General Meeting of the Gibsons Landing  Theatre Project Society. -Vera Elliott photo  The Sechelt Marsh Protection  Society may receive a generous  boost in the bid to acquire Lot  48. This may be through unexpected grant money from the  Sechelt council.  Alderman Bob Wilson proposed a motion at the regular  Sechelt council meeting  November 16 whereby council  would match doUar-for-dollar  any grants and donations the  Marsh Society could collect  towards the purchase of Lot 48.  The grant money from council would not exceed one-half of  the purchase price or $20,000,  whichever is the lower amount.  "We have surplus funds  available and this area is very  important to the municipality. I  believe we should offer our  help," said Wilson.  The motion was carried, with  some reservation expressed by  Alderman McLarty.  "I don't think we should be  matching possible provincial  grant money or other grant  money that the society may  receive. We should match donations or funds so raised,"  McLarty said.  Doug Roy of the Marsh  Society was quick to point out  the society has not yet determined what direction they will take  concerning Lot 48.  "I feel the motion from  council would be a positive step  towards the acquisition of Lot  48, but first, the society's  membership must determine  whether we can handle taking  on Lot 48." he said.  "I personally believe it would  be desirable to have Lot 48.  However, it's up to the society  and they will have to study the  situation thoroughly."  "It's conceivable that,  ultimately, the marsh may fall  under the District of Sechelt  parks system," Roy added.  3E  JC  z_tztz  -_nr  ac  FALL SALE  Evergreen Landscaping in cooperation with  B&B Farms offer for NOVEMBER ONLY  HEDGING CEDARS  $-150  arc-  ar  zre  per foot  installed  ac.  ;  ar  R.C.V.F.D.

The purpose was to  discuss the board's policies, and  also invited comment from  parents and public on the recent  Royal Commission on Education.  Secretary Treasurer Tim  Anderson reported that a five-  year facility improvement plan  has been developed to allow for  an orderly system of improving  school facilities.  Colleen Elson, director of  special services, discussed programs that deal with French,  Family Life, Special Education,  music and physical education.  The board also plans to improve professional development  programs for teachers, aides  and administrators, and to  enhance guidance and counsell-  Kiwanis Auxiliary  by Helen Weinhandl  For our November meeting,  held in the residents' lounge,  members were welcomed by a  cosy fireplace and 'Kiwi' the  resident kitten.

More on seafarm dock  A letter from Aquarius  Seafarms Limited was received  by Sechelt Council at their  regular meeting November 16,  outlining the seafarm  company's proposed use of a  controversial dock.  Denis Martell, president of  Aquarius Seafarms describes a  "rough schedule of anticipated  activity at the hatchery." He  notes the hatchery is most active  in the fall and spring season.  During the rest of the year it is  quiet in regards to the dock  facility.  In summary, the letter states,  "We constructed the dock  facility primarily as a means to  economically and efficiently  transport salmon broodstock  into the hatchery. The dock will  also be used for routine access  by operations 'crew' boats, and  for periodic access by our float  plane."  Martell also states, "We do  not have any present or future  plans to use the dock for  transporting feed or removing  'morts' from the farm operation."  Council and concerned  ratepayers who were present at  the meeting have decided to  study the proposed use of the  dock facility before taking further action.

Parents groups, commenting  on the Royal Commission,  stressed the need for earlier  assessment of students with  learning disabilities and special  needs.  Comments on the curriculum  were split between those who  favoured stronger academic  skills and those who see the  need for greater emphasis on  technical   skills   to   prepare  students for the job market.  Several parents expressed  their concern that graduates,  contrary to expectations, are  often not qualified to enter  post-secondary institutions.  Assistant Superindendent Brian  Butcher pointed out that higher  entrance requirements at  universities and colleges are  responsible for this situation.  TERMINAL  Forest Products Ltd.

"The intent of this handbook is to guide non-  foresters in managing their woodland properties,  rather than to train them to be foresters," said Gerry  St. Germain, federal forestry minister and MP for  Mission Coquitlam.  B.C. Forests Minister Dave Parker explained that  the handbook provides basic information on the  processes involved in forest land management, from  setting management objectives to harvesting and  marketing forest products.  "Our objective is to give the woodland manager  enough information to take the next step, whether  that involves ordering stock to plant, shearing  Christmas trees or hiring a harvesting contractor,"  Parker said.  According to Minister St. Germain, the development of the handbook involved reviews by users,  such as representatives of the private owners, wood  lot licencees and Indian bands. "We wanted to ensure that the handbook meets both its scientific and  communications objectives."  The handbook, developed for the two levels of  government by Reid, Collins and Associates of Vancouver, takes a 'how-to' approach to forest management and is designed as a guidebook rather than a  text on the subject.  Production of the handbook was funded under  the $300 million, five year, federal/provincial Forest  Resource Development Agreement.  Copies are available free of charge to small scale  woodland managers from the B.C. Forest Service's  district and regional offices, from the Victoria office  of the Ministry of Forests' timber harvesting branch  and from Forestry Canada in Prince George and  Victoria.

Letters to the Editor  U.S. won't dare start trade war  Editor:  I have been phone canvassing  for the New Democratic Party  (NDP) candidate Ray Skelly,  during this election. I would like  to express my appreciation to  the literally hundreds of people  I called and who, regardless of  political persuasion, were very  courteous.  The vast majority of people I  talked to were opposed to the  Mulroney Trade Deal (MTD).  Only three people were in  favour of the nuclear submarines.  One diehard PC said she opposed the deal, thought the  prime minister was essentially  careless and thought nuclear  submarines were a waste of  money. But lhat wouldn't  change her vote because "all  politicians are dishonest".  I found many PC's who held  this cynical view.  I also chatted with a large  number of Liberals who wanted  to see the MTD defeated. After  I informed them of the voting  patterns in the last election,  most decided to support Ray  Skelly.  In the last election Skelly  defeated the Conservatives by  only 600 votes while the Liberals got only 9 percent of the  popular vote. Most of the  Liberals I spoke to were quick  to recognize that in order to  defeat the PC's in this riding,  they had to support the NDP.  Ironically this would help the  Liberals nationally.  I have a vision for Canada as  a peacemaker nation, a nation  that has the confidence to lead  the Western Hemisphere toward  a bright future based on cooperation and political heterogeneity. My vision is threatened  by the MTD and the arms  build-up proposed by the PC's.  Think about it. Does this  configuration not resemble the  beginning of deteriorating US  relations with other countries to  the south where the US has tried  to impose economic and political homogeneity?  What has untrammelled US  foreign investment and unregulated trade brought to these  other countries in our  hemisphere?  It has brought short-term advantages to a small elite and untold misery to the common people. It has brought political instability and military oppression  through CIA operations aimed  at guaranteeing US 'interests'.  Think of Mexico, Guatemala, Chile and Puerto Rico.  All of these are rich in  resources, have or have had  high levels of foreign investment, few social programs and  low taxes.  But their resources have been  controlled by the US for the US.  Their 'free trade' relations with  the US have proven disastrous.  One of the main characteristics that distinguishes Canada  from these unfortunate nations  is lhat we have been successful  to some extent in holding the  Americans at bay. We have  shown more self-reliance as a  nation.  We have shown we can act independently of the US and this  has earned us respect abroad.  Many young Americans now  carry Canadian flags stitched to  their suitcases and packsacks as  they travel abroad.  Canadians are liked and  respected. Americans are hated  and feared.  Some years ago, the government of New Zealand banned  US ships bearing nuclear arms  from entering her ports. The US  threatened retaliation.  "We won't buy your sheep",  the US warned. But the small  country held firm and the US  did not dare block trade for fear  of alienating yet another country.  The US will not dare to enter  into a trade war with Canada.  We're the only 'true friend'  they've got in the western  hemisphere.  Roger Lagasse  Stop post office closures  #300 - 1212 Wesl Broadway, Vancouver, B.C.

Bus : 738-1000 Pager 24 hrs   666-5858 Res : 886-2155  Editor:  Rural Post Offices - where do  our candidates stand on this important election issue?  Although free trade and the  environment may be the 'glamour issues' of this federal election campaign, we in rural  Canada are also concerned  about many other things affecting the quality of our lives.  This includes the loss of  federally-operated post offices  in our towns and villages.  Well over 200 post offices  (144 in Ontario and Quebec  alone) have been shut down  and/or privatized in the two  years since Canada Post introduced its 10 year Corporate  Plan in 1986. The remaining  4900 are slated to go in eight  years unless the plan is stopped.  This will ultimately mean the  loss of over 10,000 decently-  paying jobs in rural Canada, 83  percent of which are now held  by women. And it will also  mean the loss of an institution  which makes a vital contribution to the social and economic  well-being of our communities.  Canada Post says it is not  abandoning rural Canada, but  'improving' service. But the real  story is now being told by  'privatized' Retail Postal Outlet  operators like Randy Arcand, a  grocery store owner from  Celista, British Columbia, who  says: "It (the Retail Postal  Outlet) is a lose-lose situation  for us, and if we had to do this  all over again, we wouldn't. Not  for a mere $600-$700 per month  and all the hassles and responsibilities...We need rural  postmasters reinstated!"  And if the business people  say no, then the community is  the real loser, because post office counter service moves right  out of town, and the people are  left with green boxes or super-  boxes for their incoming mail.  Rural Canadians deserve better than this. The question is:  Where does each of the candidates in this riding stand on  the post office issue? What will  they and their party do, if  elected, to stop these closures?  Canadian Postmasters and  Assistants Association (CPAA)  Gibsons, B.C.  Help Rainbow pre-school  Editor:  "Do not train boys to learning by force and harshness, but  lead Ihem by what amuses  them, so that they may better  discover the bent of their  minds."  -Plato  Rainbow Preschool in Roberts Creek, a member of the  Sunshine Coast Community  Services Society (S.C.C.S.S.),  has been running with great success for six years.  We are a non-profit, nongovernment funded oranization  and rely on possible grants and  a commitment of time and  fund-raising energy from our  parents. Our mandate is to keep  our fees affordable.  Preschool is not daycare, but  provides a daily curriculum of  supervised, planned activities  and social exposure targetting  on kindergarten expectations.  A parent participation preschool means that each family  contributes four weeks out of th  year as daily duty help and takes  on added jobs, cleaning duties  and fund-raising.  The commitment from families has been supportive for six  years and continues in its support. However, we must temporarily relocate because our  former landlords are making  other plans for their facility.  It is comforting the school  board is open-minded about our  plans to relocate permanently  behind Roberts Creek School. It  is also encouraging that school  trustees and many members of  the community support our intentions.  A feasibility study is underway with the additional advice  and encouragement of Stuart  Hercus and Brett McGillivray,  we will continue to provide a  valuable service for Roberts  Creek.  Meanwhile, we are asking for  support from people to begin  actuating our plans. Tax deduc-  table donations (with receipts  from the S.C.C.S.) would be  gratefully appreciated.  Our children's education is  our future. Help us help them.  Dania Matiation  Rainbow Preschool Executive  Sechelt Furniture Land  OPENS on MONDAYS now  Mon. - Sat., 9-6 p  D0n'�� Thro* �� Out!
