 Post Office closure  in Halfmoon Bay  causes controversy  Federal Member of Parliament Ray Skelly talks over the Halfmoon Bay Post Office situation with  BAJ store owner Uli Lucas (centre) and longtime Halfmoon Bay resident Queenie Burrows.  ���Ruth Forrester photo  by Ruth Forrester  The controversy over the  closure of the postal outlet at  the B & J Store in Halfmoon  Bay is far from over. A group  of concerned citizens met with  New Democratic MP Ray Skelly Friday evening, January 12,  and decided that another public  meeting is needed to try to rectify the situation.  Early in the meeting, Skelly  expressed some pessimism as to  the present government's  likelihood of changing its policy  on postal privatization. But, on  listening to the views of some of  the area residents, he conceded  that a public protest would be in  order.  Canada Post service for the  area is now only available at the  newly opened Buccaneer  Marina outlet. B & J owner, Uli  Lucas, recently resigned from  the position of franchise  operator in protest over Canada  Post's move of downscaling service to the community.  "There is nothing wrong with  having a franchise at Buccaneer  or at any other location in the  area," Lucas told the Coast  News. "Such outlets would be  an added convenience for some  residents, but there is still a need  to have full postal services in  Halfmoon Bay for several  reasons, security being one of  them."  Said long-time resident of the  area, Queenie Burrows: "I for  one, do not own a car, but 1 can  walk to this post office. How  am 1 supposed to get to Buccaneer Marina?" This sentiment was echoed by many of  the local seniors.  Mrs. Burrows gave Skelly a  historical newspaper clipping  which showed that there has  been a Halfmoon Bay Post Office as far back as 1897.  "Considering the history of  this particular post office and  the strong feelings of the  residents against its removal,  there is certainly a good case for  strong protest," Skelly said, adding that every post office in  Canada is in jeopardy right now  unless something is done.  The transfer of service has  not been as smooth as Canada  Post may have hoped. Earlier  this week, Lucas refused to  hand over the stamps and other  postal products to the postal official who had come to close  down the B & J operation.  Residents had been notified that  the outlet would be in service  until 4:30 pm on January 10.  When the official showed up  at noon, Lucas refused to close  the premises for the approximate two hours required for  the audit. Alone in the store,  Lucas had made arrrangements  for someone to relieve her at  4:30, as per the Canada Post  notification.  "The official became  belligerent and threatened to  call the RCMP," Lucas said.  Then, when he returned at 4:30,  Lucas helped him with the  audit, but refused to allow the  items to be removed.  "I have been doing the job  since November 20 and have  not received any pay," Lucas  explained. "Until such time as  Canada Post comes across with  my salary, the goods remain  here." Lucas had notified  postal officials in Vancouver  regarding her back pay prior to  the scheduled closing date of  her franchise.  The public meeting regarding  the Halfmoon Bay postal situation will be held Thursday,  January 18 at 7 pm in the new  Halfmoon Bay School.  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast 25' per copy on news stands       January 15,1990       Volume 44       Issue 3  SCRD fears for  safety of Coast's  main watershed  by Dave Fraser  Young Andrew Forsyth of Cedar Grove Elementary School was judged the winner of the contest for  naming the mascot dog of Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department. The winning name? 'Burny'. Pictured  with Andrew (left) and Burny is GVFD dog handler Bob Stevens. -John Burnside photo  Growth must be controlled  "It's probably the most important issue facing the Sunshine Coast right now," said  Area E Director Jim Gurney  about the fate of the Chapman  Creek watershed.  "And we have to fight hard  to keep it."  Gurney, speaking passionately about the possible logging of  the watershed at the SCRD  board meeting January 11, said  "(it) provides the only reliable  water supply on the Sunshine  Coast."  Gurney said the 600 hectare  (1482 acre) parcel should be  protected from logging by  Jackson Brothers, which  possesses the timber-cutting  rights to the area. "We're not  talking about a lot of timber. It  could easily be left and no one  would miss it."  Gurney said logging and the  construction of roads in the  area would destroy the water  retention capacity of the watershed area, forcing the district to  build costly reservoirs and  dams. Filtration facilities would  also be prohibitively expensive  for local taxpayers, he added.  Acting upon Gurney's suggestion, the board agreed to invite the Ministry of Forests to  an upcoming meeting to discuss  the fate of the watershed. The  meeting will be held on  February 14 at 10 am at the  forestry office on Field Road.  Gurney said the timber is low  quality, and because of the  marginal conditions of the area  - over 900 metres (3000 feet) in  altitude - it would be virtually  impossible to replace the timber  there.  Area A Director Gordon  Wilson said a full integrated  management strategy was  necessary not only for the  Chapman Creek area, which  contains the Tetrahedron alpine  wilderness, but also for other  areas of recreational value such  as Ruby Lake and Sakinaw  Lake.  "What we're asking for is not  outrageous," said Gurney.  "Whistler (village) already has  control over its forests."  Planner warns council  by Dave Fraser  When considering amendments to the Official Community Plan Gibsons Council and  staff should keep in mind the  expressed wish of the citizens of  the community by maintaining  an emphasis on a "small town"  atmosphere.  That was the message from  Rob Buchan, municipal planner  and approving officer, who was  asked by the Town's Planning  Committee to comment on a  proposed review of Gibsons'  Official Community Plan.  "It is obvious to all that the  Town of Gibsons is now experiencing a level of development activity hitherto  unknown," notes Buchan in his  report to the Planning Committee, January 9. "And there is  every reason to expect this ac  tivity to continue in the future,  regardless of the imminent completion of the Port Mellon expansion due to the "ripple" effect from the pressures being  felt on the Lower Mainland, in  concert with the fact that Gibsons is now being actively  discovered as nol only a retirement venue, but also as a viable  residential alternative for those  still in the work force and the  marketplace."  Buchan notes that the adoption of the Official Community  Plan in 1985 followed several  years of private citizen's.input,  "with the result that the completed document is certainly not  just a political plan, or a planner's plan, but is one truly  reflective of the, wishes of the  community at the time."  To make his point Buchan  quotes from the 1985 plan: 'Ut  is important to bear in mind  that the very reasons most  residents of Gibsons made their  "landing" here in this community was to exchange the  ever-changing and ever-  intensifying character of their  former urban habitats for the  stability and intimacy of scale of  the historic village.  "It is therefore essential that  this quality of life be not totally  destroyed by the inevitable  pressure of growth from the  Lower Mainland, but that the  small town ambience be  preserved by the direction and  control of, in particular, the  type of this growth."  Buchan warns that in the new  decade pressures will be brought  to bear on council and staff to  support amendments to the Official Community Plan "for the  justification of various development proposals."  "Having issued this caution,  I am faced with the direction  from council for the amendment to the Official Community  Plan to facilitate the objectives  of the Sunshine Coast Maritime  History Society (to build a  reproduction of the 18th Century sailing vessel, The  Discovery, in Gibsons).  "I am of the opinion that  these objectives would be best  accommodated by the addition  to the (plan) of the designation  of temporary uses. Similarly,  the growing need for the addition of our infrastructure of  mobile home parks in our community could be handled in a  like manner."  With these objectives in mind  Buchan was given approval by  council to pursue the preparation of a draft amendment to  the Official Community Plan.  Serving the Sunshiae Coast since  1945  A Coast News, January 15,1990  Premier's choice  Two days from the publication date of this newspaper  the people of British Columbia will find out whether or  not their controversial premier will step down in the wake  of six by-election defeats, or whether he will stay on to  fight again.  It has never been easy to predict what Premier Vander  Zalm will do or say, only that he would do and say it with  that trademark smile of his. Predicting what he will do in  this large issue is a chancy business.  It is the view here that the premier should stay at his  post. The essence of democracy lies in accountability to  people. It is to make a mockery of the process if the  government party can choose a charismatic leader for a  quick fix of a growing unpopularity, as the Socreds did at  Whistler in 1986, then dump him quickly before another  election if it appears that the appeal of his charismatic and  controversial self seems to be wearing thin.  The argument could be made that Premier Bennett,  Vander Zalm's predecessor should likewise have remained  to let the people decide, but Bennett had led his party successfully through several elections and had the right to go.  This premier should allow the people to pass judgement on  his activities at least once then live with their decision.  For what it's worth, it seems to us that the premier will  not only decide to fight another election but will call one  quickly. There is evidence that a downturn in the economy  lies ahead and the governing party which is claiming  responsibility for the current high level of economic activity, as of course it did not for the recession of Ihe 1980's,  will want to cash in whilst all looks rosy.  If we are right remember you read it here first; if we are  wrong it won't be for the first time.  Warning  Canadians have gloried, somewhat smugly, in having  a rich, resource-based economy.

SUBSCRIPTION RATES  i war m 6 montns lift Foawgn: t war tag  The salvation of  the WI Hall  In a letter to the editor, Coast  News, February 17, 1989,  former Coast resident, Richard  Kennel t, writes of the old  Women's Institute Hall: "It  looms today like an old relic of  a barn, on prime land. It still  wafts the memories of our past  while seemingly hollering for  restoration and preservation."  Now, almost a year later, the  old hall on the corner of  Highway 101 and North Road  in Gibsons, which has been the  property of the School District  since 1941 and most latterly used as its maintenance building,  stands on the brink of being  saved.  Saved not only as a relic of  Gibsons' past but as a small  local theatre and auditorium    >  serving a function, as it once    '  did, as a centre of some com.' - ��'���'  munity activity. It could be the,  hub, perhaps, and catalyst for a  much  needed  renewed  community spirit in the Town of  Gibsons.  Instrumental in keeping this  heritage building intact for further community use, and of  great benefit to Gibsons history,  are the Gibsons Landing  Heritage Society (GLHS) and  its president Fred Inglis. There  is no doubt they deserve considerable credit for their efforts  to save the hall.  The dream of a permanent  theatre building in Gibsons is a  long-standing one and as the  most recent production of the  Driftwood Players reaffirmed,  there is no dearth of talent on  this Coast in the theatrical arts.  A permanent home for this  talent would only enhance it as  well as the community.  The Gibsons Landing Theatre Project (GLTP), for one,  envisioned a theatre of professional dimensions and  capabilities in connection with  the former firehall on Gower  Point Road. Toward that end,  considerable time and effort  were expended over several  years by this conscientious and  hard-working group and ap  proximately $100-$200,000 in  funds and pledges were raised.  That particular dream died in  late February, 1989, when  whatever Go-BC grant monies  available for a theatre on the  Sunshine Coast went to the  Sechelt Indian Government  District for its $4.6 million  municipal/commercial/-  educational/recreational centre  in Sechelt.  In commenting on the centre,  Chief Tom Paul said: "We  eventually want to put a theatre  in here." And, who knows, that  may eventually happen.  Meanwhile, as the GLTP  looked for an alternative to its  planned theatre in Gibsons large  enough to make putting on  plays financially viable, there  was the GLHS and its Women's  Institute Hall project proceeding along the lines of a  small  140-seat theatre which,  perhaps, will prove too small to  pay for iteself as a theatre alone.  Unfortunately for this community, the paths of these two  groups did not meet and merge,  but rather crossed each other  with some difficulty early last  summer and, now seemingly,  have branched out away from  what should be their common  destination - a theatre in Gibsons.  Rai Purdy, president of the  GLTP, when he talked to the  Coast News, was cautiously optimistic about the chances of the  two groups coming together.  According to Purdy, the GLTP  has offered to use what monies  they have to help the heritage  society, but the GLHS has turned it down.  "In writing they've said they  didn't want it. They wanted to  retain complete control over the  project," he said, adding that  the actual sharing of control  hadn't been discussed after  several proposals had been  made.  "It's not worth a discussion  at this point. We've made an offer and they've said, 'no, thank  you'."  Purdy added, however, that  "these things can be changed."  According to the GLHS, it  has "never refused the offer of  GLTP money". In its project  outline to Gibsons Council last  week, the GLHS states: "What  the GLHS has done, after seeking legal advice, is to make a  decision to manage the project  in its entirety.  "Amalgamation has been  suggested by the GLTP. However, to amalgamate two  societies their constitutions  should have much in common.  As it stands, the constitutions of  the GLTP and the GLHS could  not be more dissimilar."  Worried that with amalgamation, the GLHS would lose the  "heritage aspect of the society",  it concludes, "...a compromise  is impossible, not because of  disagreements, but because the  two (constitutions) are as alike  as apples and oranges."  The GLTP feels that at 140  seats, the proposed new theatre  is not likely to make a play profitable. There are, however, the  GLTP says, alternatives to the  interior design Which ' could  perhaps increase the seating  capacity of the building and  therefore make it a more financially sound proposition.  In order to work it all out, of  course, to suit both the professional theatre needs and those  of a community theatre, a certain putting together of heads  would seem necessary.  Still, the old hall will be saved  and that's something. It will  allow Mr. Kennett and others  who remember the building  from its heyday of Saturday  night dances, "to dance away  our dreams of the way it used to  be."  Down from the mountain  Why so much fuss over Sniffy?  by Sam Moses  I've written you several times  on the same topic and here I go  again...the matter of clear-cut  logging here on the Sunshine  Coast.  1 have a couple of stories I  would like to tell, the first of  which happened to me when 1  lived in a cabin high on  Elphinstone Mountain. On this  one occasion 1 was in my cabin  at night and there was a gale  warning up for the strait  needless to say it was very windy. I heard as I had before during high winds one of the old  dead cedars crash to the  ground, this one was nearby for  it shook the cabin. About an  hour later a creature poked his  head in through a hole in the inner wall of the cabin. Looking  in my field guide I identified  him as a marten.  There's not too many  martens around this area  anymore although there are a  lot of dens around to indicate  that this was not always the  case. There was a pair of them,  a male and female, and they  stayed with me for about two  weeks. Every night they would  cautiously creep inside for a  meal of rolled oats I left out for  them. One day during their stay  I discovered the old cedar that  had blown down in the storm  and in it the remains of their  den. I was glad to be there to  give them lodgings until they  found a new home. It was an  experience I'll not soon forget.  Statistics show in clear-cut  ' logging for every tree they take  out of the forest, they cut 20.  Among those they cut and leave  behind are many old cedars like  the one I described above. They  serve as homes for small owls,  the odd marten, woodpeckers  and squirrels, just to name a  few. Then there are the birds  that nest in the live trees they cut  down and have no use for.  There are a great many  Children of the Wild that burrow into the ground for shelter  that die as well when this  murderous method of logging  takes place.  This brings me to another  story which caused me to  wonder what are human values  and why...remember 'Sniffy'?  He was the domestic rat that  some fool who calls himself an  artist, was going to crush between two pieces of canvas supposedly to create a "work of  art'.  People were totally outraged,  so much in fact that even after  they had gotten a hold of his  crushing device, and the rat had  been returned to the pet shop,  they followed him down the  streets of Vancouver and literally wanted to as one person was  heard to say, 'exterminate him'.  I will admit I thought the man  had a problem...something that  a warm white sleeveless jacket  and bouncing around in a rubber room for a while might  cure, then again maybe not. I  don't know what people's reaction to this bizarre event was  like locally, though I do know it  had a few people talking.  What would those people  who were all but ready to string  this guy up think if they knew  what was going on up here and  other places? I will admit that  Sniffy was a good looking rat  and worth the saving, but have  you ever seen a Bushytail  Woodrat? How about a Deer  Mouse, Western Jumping  Mouse, or a Townsend Chipmunk? The list could go on but  I don't think that it needs to in  order for me to make my point.  These are all wild creatures  that get crushed to death every  time they clear-cut log. They get  crushed in their burrows when  the trees that aren't even going  to be used fall on them. They  get ground into the earth as  skidders and other logging  machinery destroys what was  once their homes to leave great  tracks of mud and debris.  Should the poor little souls survive that holocaust, the loggers  come back and burn the hell out  of whatever's left I When I look  at a clear-cut logging slash I  don't just see the destruction of  a forest, I sec a vast graveyard.  I wonder if any of your  readers felt like some of the  people I saw on the News Hoar  with regards to poor Sniffy. If  indeed there are some, why get  so mad at one individual's intentions to squash one rodent  when thousands of his cousins  and distant cousins perish right  here in our forests almost every  day?  If you are so outraged about  this kind of senseless murder,  go after those that do it constantly on a large scale. Use  your pens to speak out on  behalf of those that have no  voice to speak. Clear-cut logging practices kill unnecessarily  in more ways than one and it  has to stop and It has to stop  now! Coast News, January 15,1990  Drug viewpoint  Meaningful dialogue needed  Editor:  In Teri Dawe's letter, he  forgets to mention that  Greenpeace publicly started the  ball rolling on 2,3,7.8 TCDD  dioxin, by mailing a sample  from Harmac on Vancouver  Island to Sweden for testing.  The closure of Howe Sound  to crab and prawn fishing a year  later was due specifically to this  toxin. To clarify the issue further, and give an update from  my view, I ask for your patience.  HSPP hasn't produced this  dioxin since last September  when chlorine dioxide (C102)  was substituted SO per cent in  place of chlorine (CI), along  with other things. However  chlorine dioxide, because of the  element CI in the compound,  produces organochlorines along  with chlorine which is still used.  Recently there has been a  serious look by science at  organochlorines due to their  toxicity and their failure to  biodegrade except in sunlight.  The accumulation is a cause for  concern. This is why after 30  years, government regulations  will now be implemented regarding their discharge to 2.S  kg/tonne of pulp beginning in  1992.  Greenpeace and the BC  Federation of Labour call for  the elimination of organochlorines. However this is  more difficult than first appears. The technology to produce export grade Kraft pulp  without use of CI02 is not  available anywhere in the  world.  Mellon, in filing for a permit  amendment application for the  new mill, has to apply for a  Level 'A' permit. There is no in-  between.  Level 'A' permits 20 mkg/d  for Total Suspended Solids. The  present level in the mill is 10  mkg/d. The expected discharge  even with increased production  will amount to seven mkg/d.  The discrepancy in figures was  perceived by the groups as a fast  move by the company to pollute  more than ever.  The simple question of "will  there be more?", and the resultant answers in the skeptical,  cynical atmosphere was baffling  to those involved from both  sides because of bureaucratic  tape tangle.  The issue of organochlorines  wasn't dealt with in the limited  time allowed by BC Waste  Management who orchestrated  the hearing.  However, according to my  knowledge, organochlorines  will be reduced from the current  5.5 kg/tonne of pulp to l.S  kg/tonne by the end of the sum  mer. Simple arithmetic shows it,  based on averaged production  rates:  Present production at 67S T x  5.5 kg/T = 3712.S kg.  Future production at 1000 T  x 1.5 kg/T = 1500 kg.  A best case scenario for the  new UNOX effluent treatment  system will further reduce the  1500 kg to 500 kg when the  sludge is burnt at high  temperatures in the new boiler.  Recent trials at Prince George  have proven this successful.  I think the approach of Environmental Watch, yet no one  doubts the effectiveness of its  publicity, has alarmed industry  to the extent it sought to protect  itself by financing the BC Environmental Information Institute. Each views the other as  extremists.  It will be a happy day when  there is a meaningful dialogue  between people. How it will  happen is a question people are  grappling with now.  Hugh McNab, Chairman  CPU Local 1119's  Environmental Committee  Editor:  Marijuana is not just a  harmless little weed. Marijuana  is the drug we should be trying  our hardest to discourage  because it is usually the first  drug tried.  Because booze is legal, we  have a more relaxed attitude  toward it. I could not believe  that Anne Miles thinks that if  we legalized marijuana, our  problem with it would be solved. The alarming statistic of pot  is that it can take control of our  youth early and quickly - read  some books and visit some  drop-in centres.  The posts should not be the  issue of the day. The problem of  drugs should be - it seems really  sad to me that our kids should  even fed the need to get 'high'  artificially like this in thcar  young lives. I don't like to point  a finger at the kids, but of all  society they need the most attention. The majority of our  kids are fun and full of life. I  admire April MacKenrie-Moore  for the energy she has put into  helping our youth kick a bad  lifestyle.  Eunice Richardson  Paprican, the research arm of  industry, is actively involved in  finding ways of. reducing the  discharge, and is pursuing a  more benign bleaching technology. Shutting the mills down to  solve the problem isn't a  reasonable, or a sane approach.  Chlorine dioxide is an expensive chemical to produce, as  well as a health hazard. WCB  regulations for C102 allow one  tenth ppm exposure for an eight  hour period.  Since Kraft pulp is an export  product, international regulations regarding how it is made  would be required.  The Swedish government is  very adept in international  diplomacy while working alongside industry and responding to  its environmental concerns. The  industry develops pollution  technology and the saying  "Sweden exports its pollution  problems" expresses this relationship.  A sensible path to pursue  locally is to ask for paper made  without chlorine or chlorine  dioxide. Perhaps Island Paper,  which produces all the bonded  paper required for the BC  domestic market, could be persuaded to make such a product.  To alter our paper needs  locally I don't think would be  too difficult, and maybe a trend  started for other places is possible.

Best Bujs on B.Cs Best SeDers!*  Action applauded  Editor:  Praise to the British Columbia Civil Liberties Association  (BCCLA) for expressing themselves about the discriminatory  nature of the 'no druggies'  poster. Great action! It's good  to know that we have an  organization that will review the  situation when governments  > and their agents are seen to be  perpetuating inequality.  The BCCLA, as well as being  concerned with the rights of  long-haired youths like the one  pictured in the poster, has held  a position since the early 70's  opposed to the use of criminal  sanctions against marijuana  smokers.  I feel the use of all drugs  should fall within the ambit of  personal choice permitted in a  free society.  Sadly, it seems typical that  this misguided anti-drug task  force would use a picture of a  zonked-out long-hair on a  poster saying, "If you see any  people like this call the police."  The injustice suffered by  young people who wear their  hair long is one of the many  tragic effects of drug prohibition.  It is not large scale traffickers  and importers who are creating  the drug bust statistics, it's  young people, many of whom  have their legal rights violated  by police, found in possession  of marijuana.  At least the law does not  discriminate between offenders  in one vital respect: rich or  poor, they all bear the lifelong  stigma of a criminal record.  They all feel its impact on  public esteem, employment,  foreign travel, education in the  professions, appointment to the  courts and many more of life's  rewarding opportunities.  To brand as criminals tens of  thousands of Canadian youths'  otherwise leading normal lives,  by virtue of their experimental  or recreational marijuana use  presents a fundamental problem  in a society founded on principles of justice and respect of  the law.  People too often believe laws  will eliminate drugs, which will  reduce crime and in turn increase employment and restore  the family. It isn't so.  The use of the criminal sanction in an attempt to prohibit  drug use is not commanding  respect. Stepping up the war on  drugs will not lead to victory,  but rather to more violence and  lawlessness.  The challenge facing us regarding drugs is how best to live  with the inevitable availability  of drugs while mitigating the  harmful aspects of misuse.  I'm sure that when we find  the confidence to de-penalize  drug use and discourage its  misuse by a realistic approach  which reflects honest medical  concerns, we'll all be a lot more  secure.

Honourable Mayor Diane Strom  Last year there was much  discussion regarding the naming1  of the newly purchased waterfront park. It was decided to  wait until the land was put to  use before deciding on a name.  At that time, considering  myself to be a long time resident, I signed a petition urging  the use of 'Winegarden' for that  name. Many letters were sent to  council asking that in keeping  with the policy of naming  streets, roads, parks, etc., after  the pioneering families, that a  good choice for this park be  'Winegarden'.  I understand that all submissions regarding the naming have  been put on file. Now that the  park will be in use by the SC  Maritime Historical Society,  may the file be opened and the  matter be dealt with?  Again may I remind council  that Arnold Winegarden and  Emma Jane Gibson, daughter  of the founders, were childhood  sweethearts in Ontario and were  married here soon after George  Oibson and family pre-empted  land. Part of what is now the  waterfront park was at one time  owned by Arnold and Emma  Winegarden. Their families still  flourish throughout the area.  The late Maude Winegarden  Fisher is directly connected to  the Fishers of Gower Point and  Gertrude Winegarden Corlett  owned the land adjacent to and  now park of the park. Ted  Winegarden, the only remaining  son of Arnold and Emma Jane  Winegarden was bom in Gibsons. Now in his 87th year, he  and his family still live in the  town.  May I ask that council now  give the matter their attention  and also ask that others write to  express their opinions?

Coast News, January 15,1990  9 New computers may be the fashionable development In education but these Gibsons youngsters are  I perhaps learning something at least as Important - the care of the environment. A program Initiated by  ;: the Roberts Creek Food Co-op sees paper collected by school maintenance trucks, pictured here, aad  J taken to Vancouver by Kevin Hdenlus of Hctenlus Timber Products. -ftsn BmtMe pMo  \ Trustees get demonstration of  ; computer revolution In schools  by Rose Nicholson  There is a revolution going on  right under our noses, but most  adults, at least those over 40,  don't even know it's happening.  This was evident at the  January 9 School Board  meeting. John Clements,  teacher at Chatelech and computer co-ordinator for School  District 46, and Tom Roberts,  math and drafting eacher at  Chatelech, gave a demonstration for trustees of the way  computers are being used in  district schools.  Roberts showed trustees how  a program called Computer  Assisted Drafting (CAD) is  changing the way drafting is  taught to high school students.  After about one hour of instruction in CAD, a student is  able to turn out a very professional looking drawing. Under  the old system, it may have  taken several months for a student to develop the skills and  eye/hand co-ordination to  achieve the same result.  "About 80 per cent of the  drafting jobs in BC call for experience in CAD," said  Roberts. "These skills are used  in architecture, topography,  mechanical engineering and  many phases of industry."  "Will all drafting be done on  computers?" asked Trustee  Maureen Clayton.  "I don't think it will ever  come to that," replied Roberts.  "The manual skills will always  be important, and there will  always be situations where computers are not available."  John Clements gave a demonstration of leading edge  computer technology called  'HyperCard', which he said, "is  somewhere between programming language and a data base."  HyperCard can be used in a  wide variety of applications.  Students are using it to study  English, science, social studies  and many other subjects.  HyperCard, an Apple Macintosh program, differs from the  more conventional computer  programs in that it stores information on a compact disk instead of a floppy disk. The information is stored optically,  rather than magnetically. This  means that the storage capacity  of the disk is far greater than on  the older systems.  "You could put the entire  Grober Encyclopedia on a compact disk," said Clements, "and  the disk would be less than half  full. It has sound and scanning  capabilities and can do searches.  For instance, if you wanted to  look up Beethoven in the encyclopedia, you could bring up  all the information on him, see  his picture and even hear some  of his music."  Clements and Roberts told  trustees that computer technology has changed many of the  ways students were taught in the  past. Computer skills are taught  during classes in other subjects,  because the students are accessing information on the computers. "We're using a lot of  the Year 2000 concepts right  now," said Clements.  But Clements and Roberts  had some words of caution for  trustees. A new ruling by the  Ministry of Education that all  Business Education courses  must be taught on computers by  next year will mean that the present computer labs at Elphinstone and Chatelech will not be  available for other courses, so  both of those schools will have  to have two labs.  Other ministry requirements  that administrative records be  computerized means that principals and secretarial staff must  be computer literate. Much of  the administrative work in the  district is done on computers,  but there is no standardization  of the system so if staff move  from one school to another,  they have to be retrained.  Howe Sound no dump  The SCRD's Environmental  Task Force is asking all local  governments to petition the  federal government to take  Howe Sound off its list as an  ocean dumping site.  The recommendation is a result of a letter received regarding cadmium contamination in  the Sound.  "Basically, if an area is deemed to be more polluted than the  waste to be dumped, it continues to get dumped," said  SCRD Director Jim Gurney.  Squamish, West Vancouver,  Lillooet and the Islands Trust  will also be approached to take  part in the protest.  In a separate discussion of  Howe Sound at the Task  Force's meeting January 12,  Gibsons Alderman Ken Collins  suggested the political bodies  concerned should also "convert  the attitude that the Sound be  used as a recreational, not commercial area."  The Task Force will contact  area governments regarding the  formation of a Howe Sound  Development Strategy,  Victoria Eileen McKibbin of West Sechelt  has graduated from McGill University, Montreal  and has received her degree in Bachelor of Arts  Honours. Her parents, Warren and Kathleen  McKibbin, are joining with family today to  celebrate the convocation.  Computer training is still not  a requirement for teacher training at UBC or Simon Fraser  Universities, so new teachers are  arriving in the district with very  little computer skills. There is a  teacher training program here  that is presently working with  about 20 teachers, but more is  needed.  Much of the computer equipment in the district is now about  eight years old, "and that's old  by computer standards," said  Clements. "We need to take a  look at standardization and at  updating our equipment."  "How do we compare with  other districts?" asked Trustee  Shawn Cardinall.  "We're about average,"  replied Gements, "but we  could do a lot better."  HSPP  fees  debated  by Dave Fraser  Two directors with the Sunshine Coast Regional District  (SCRD) disagree whether a  building permit fee to be charged to Howe Sound Pulp and  Paper Limited is fair and  equitable.  Causing the controversy is a  proposed adjustment to the  SCRD's fee schedule for construction of projects exceeding  $5 million dollars in value. It is  suggested that the new Port  Mellon pulp mill, with an  estimated value of almost $49  million, be charged $64,250.  "It's an enormous tax concession," said Area A Director  Gordon Wilson, pointing out  that if based on normal fees the  pulp mill would be required to  pay in excess of $200,000, "far  less in per unit taxation than  comparable pulp mills in the  province."  But Area E Director Jim  Gurney disagreed. "We tried to  come up with a different rate  for industrial buildings over $5  million in value that was fair  and equitable."  Gurney noted that because  the industrial buildings are not  habitable structures but basically empty steel structures the  amount of work required by the  regional district's inspection  staff is much reduced.  The new fee schedule, contained in a proposed amendment to the Sunshine Coast  Regional District Building and  Plumbing Amendment By-law  No. 126, would charge industrial buildings greater than  $5 million in value $1 per $1000  of building value plus a base  amount of $23,250.  The matter was referred to  the SCRD Finance Committee  for further consideration.  It's our Year End  and we want to  Reduce Inventory  120%  50%  i  i  OFF  ;     FRAMES  !

Of youth and what they  know of AIDS?  Health and Welfare Canada  thought so and in 1988 commissioned a survey of Canadian  youth across the country to see  what they know and don't  know, and then to develop programs to deal with the prevention of the spread of the disease.  Some significant revelation of  Canadian youths' attitudes,  behaviours, and lack of knowledge and concerns in disease  prevention came out of this  survey, a survey in which a  research group out of Queens  University interviewed 38,000  young people.  Those selected for interview  came from students in Grades 7,  9 and II, and the first year college or university, and from  street kids.  To the researchers a definition of street kids was one small  part of those who actually lived  on the street, a greater part of  those thai ran away from supervision from time to time, and a  third pari of those lhat lived at  home and went to school yet  spent a good deal of time on the  slreel (curb kids).

Changing  sexual morals now allow former  taboo words like 'condom' to  be freely used.  One quarter of the Grade 9's  and three quarters of the college  students surveyed had had sexual intercourse, and of these  many had had a great number  of partners.  The great majority of these  students did not use condoms  nor think there was any need for  such protection. Their greatest  fear was pregnancy not disease.  To them AIDS and STDs  (Sexually Transmitted Diseases)  happen only to other people.  Although they know how HIV,  the AIDS virus, is transmitted,  they seem 10 know nothing of  the protection condoms and/or  spermicides provide. In this  regard, because of their greater  use of alcohol and drugs, the  street kids are al high risk of  disease.  If there is no marked change,  say the researchers, AIDS will  continue ils epidemic spread  throughout the country. Present  behaviour which has no regard  for protection permits the rapid  spread of infection.  Now in fear of AIDS, many  community leaders advocate  restraint in sexual behaviour,  but youth "does not get the  message, or does not agree, or  cannot change its behaviour."  Since sexual intercourse is  highly valued by youth, there is  next to no support for abstinence among them. Sexual intercourse is only acceptable to  many when there is a loving  relationship - but not in the  form of marriage. In general,  students said intercourse  without love was not satisfying.  Behavioural change must be  the goal of any education whose  purpose is lo prevent the spread  of AIDS and STDs. Many  youth, for instance, still think  of it as a disease that only affects homosexuals.  And who will carry out this  edcucation? The school,' par\ ,,  ents, medical experts? Televf-  sion? ����� i <���  Most youth said Ihe little they  had learned of AIDS came by J  way of television but many  others suspected the motives of  television stations. To them  television was not their preferred source. The other'-'three  sources of information were the  preferred ones.  "We don't believe all we hear  because the media uses AIDS to  sell their programs and papers."  (male: Grade 11).  "Teachers don't know  enough about AIDS - they are  like the average person. Some  of them should become informed and leach us about it."  (male: college).  Education will come none too ���  soon. Young people are worried. "If you're sleeping wilh  someone, you're kind of sleeping with everyone they've slept  with. Il's scary." (female:  university).  Besides facing a fatal communicable disease now epidemic, Canadians are in moral  and social crisis where individual rights conflict with the  protection of the public's  health.  Is it time to set the pendulum  swinging away from the present  permissive attitude towards  some conservative standards of  behaviour in the whole com- ���  munity? And in the family?  You don't really think a program giving out protection information will alone save us  from this destructive epidemic,  do you?

What  does he mean by this? He's still  around, has been for a long  time and probably will be to see  the turn of a century and some.  This old character has lived in  the same small and comfy house  since 1950 when for $275 he  purchased one acre on what is  now prime Roberts Creek property. At this time there were  less than 10 houses on Flume  Trail, which was only a path to  the beach and Beach Avenue.  The highway was no more  than a gravel 'donkey trail', as  some like to call the Coast  Highway.  Everyone used to do their  best to be self-sufficient at this  time, with big vegetable  gardens, chickens, cows, etc.  Apparently Lockyer Road was  a veritable 'Richmond delta' for  vegetables and mixed farming.  If you needed it, the old  horsedrawn truck would stop  twice a week at the top of Flume  hill and blow his horn to let all  know he was there. He carried  everything from bread and veggies to hardware.

JOE ROAD  Joe Road in the 'east end' of  Roberts Creek is losing its  treacherous snake bend this  year. I guess it's about time.  Unless you drive a pickup,  you'd hit bottom more than .  once on this washboard turn.  And without a decent size  ditch along one side, the whole  corner would have soon washed  out completely. The machine  work and blasting has been going on for several weeks now.  Windows rattled tremendously  the other day from one of the  charges.  Here's hoping the straightened out access to the highway  and its new blacktop will be an  improvement.  According to the Regional  District, water lines will not be  put in at this time or in the near  future. The reason for this being the large acreage properties  along Joe Road make water  lines unfeasible financially.  If a subdivision ever was  created, that would, however  justify regional water.

Education  Forum  There will be a public forum  tonight (January 15) at  Chatelech Secondary School at  7 pm to discuss the new, Year  2000 educational program.  The forum, hosted by School  District 46, is a continuation of  a previous meeting held before  Christmas.  It is an opportunity for the  public to learn more about the  program and for the Ministry of  Education to get feedback on  the public reaction to the plan.  by Larry Grafton  This week our first vice-  president, Gerry Chailler, has  elaborated further on the proposed health drop-in which is  being planned to take place in  our present hall.  Soon after a health drop-in is  initiated, the next logical step  will be a 'Wellness Workshop',  which constitutes a program  designed to provide participants  with the information, skills and  support to undertake a personal  plan which will aid in maintaining their good health.  As well as self care, the  workshop will cover nutrition,  exercise, stress management and  community communication  abilities.  The format will be information sharing, mini-lectures, exercise, relaxation, nutrition,  general health, weekly support  calls, and of course, a continuation by the participant in the  home.  Crucial aspects of the program centre on skill development, personal empowerment  and mutual support. The  specific objectives of the  Wellness Workshop are as  follows:  1. To develop an awareness  of the factors that influence personal well being.  2. To support each senior in  developing a personal plan for  keeping well.  3. To link seniors with information, resources and support  appropriate to their needs.  4. To develop confidence and  leadership skills so that participants are capable of leading  mutual activities and participating in the community  health action planning process.  Your involvement in the program may be for a number of  different reasons. You may  want to learn to meet the needs  of an elderly person in your  home or an elderly neighbour  that you are 'keeping an eye  on'. The need may also be personal.  The workshop may eventually develop a mutual aid group  for our community. It will also  help to build a shared vision of  health skills to work with one  another.  Later in the program, when  some of the objectives of the  program are reached, participants will probably join in  the regular line of branch activities which include carpet  bowling, five-pin bowling,  cards, exercises, aggravation,  bingo, bridge, etc.  For   further   information  please contact Gerry Chailler at  886-3728.

The culprit was one small  white and black duck which had  somehow become lost on the  main street and was too scared  to make a getaway.  When attempts were made to  catch him, he would fly at car  level and land on the road in  front of yet another car. It was  quite some time before some  pedestrians were able to chase it  off to safer territory, and we  can only hope that it may have  found its way back to the marsh  from whence it possibly came.  major projects, such as the mill  and pipeline.  In order to do this the  Chamber would like to hear  from anyone in the community  who is interested in providing  room and board or renting out  a room, basement, trailer,  camper...the Coast is facing an  accommodation crisis this year.  If visitors are turned away  they may not return in the  future when the economy is not  so buoyant. If the community  can assist in providing alternative accommodation for our  visiting workers, this crisis may  be averted.  Please call the Chamber office at 885-3100 if you can help,  or drop off or mail a brief  description of accommodation  available, with prices, to the  Chamber office at 5509 Shorn-  cliffe, next to the elementary  school, Box 360, Sechelt, B.C.  The Sechelt Chamber is also  interested in hearing from  anyone planning on setting up a  Bed & Breakfast so that we can  add it to our B&B Registry.

As with the current phase of  the project, the upcoming phase  will provide employment for  residents of the area by means  of the "day labour" method of  contracting.  With day labour, smaller  contractors are hired by the  Department of Highways to  work on separate parts of the  project, rather than a general  contractor taking over the  whole project.  In an area like the Sunshine  Coast, a major job going to a  general contractor could mean  that an off-coast contractor is  awarded the project, and that  the contractor would hire most  workers for the job from off-  coast.  Mackenzie District MLA  Harold Long told the Coast  News that he wants to see the  whole highway completed by  day labour, and that the most  effective way is by having the  work done in small chunks, no  longer than three kilometres.  Unconfirmed reports say that  the Secret Cove to Wood Bay  phase of the project will be  completed several hundred  thousand dollars under budget.  ftjrf&  #f#/KERN'S  *k&  Uli Lucas attends to the last customer to be served al Ihe historic  Halfmoon Bay Post Office.

The first meeting was held on  February 15, 1955 and the  organization has grown steadily  throughout the years. For  several years now the meeting  place has been at the Welcome  Beach Community Hall on  Redrooffs on the second Monday of each month.

Despite the fact that residents  had already declared their opposition to this at a meeting in  December when a request was  made for a period of time to be  granted before final decisions  were reached, Canada Post  went ahead and did it anyway.  While Buccaneer Marina may  prove to be convenient for some  residents, there are many in the  Halfmoon Bay area, particularly elderly people, who don't  drive, who are against any move  away from the B&J Store.  This location was convenient  in that it was within walking  distance from their homes. The  sad thing about all this is the  fact that people are asked for  input, they turn out in force to  give same, and are then completely ignored.  GOOD WISHES  On a happier note now. Happy birthday and all good wishes  to Eva Lyons on Redrooffs,  who on January 10 celebrated  her 90th birthday. I know that I  speak on behalf of all of Eva's  good friends and neighbours in  passing on these good wishes to  a fine resident of our area.  Also there's a 'too young'  looking couple to be celebrating  their Golden Wedding anniversary on January 13. George and  Marg Carpenter of Redrooffs  must surely have got married  when they were only nine years  old.  A family gathering was held  in North Vancouver for the occasion. Congratulations and  wishes for many more happy  years to you both from all of us.  WELCOME HOME  A welcome home greeting to  a special Redrooffs lady.

BLACK WEDNESDAYS  As we all know, Wednesday  is garbage collection day where  we live. But for those who don't  know, it is pretty obvious when  driving along Redrooffs on a  Wednesday morning.  The number of households  with plastic garbage bags instead of decent containers on  the side of the road is  unbelievable in this day and  age. The crows have a heyday  ripping them apart and  spreading the mess around.  Time to smarten up and prevent  this mess.  IMPORTANT MEETING  There will be a meeting of the  utmost importance this Thursday at the new Halfmoon Bay  School to which everyone is asked to attend. The time is at 7 pm  and the subject is the Halfmoon  Bay Post Office closure.  Mr. Ray SkeUy will be in attendance at well as a Post Office representative, CUPW official, and hopefully coverage  by TV and radio stations from  Vancouver.  It is essential that residents  turn out in force to express their  views. Coast News, January 15,1990  SUPPORT  HOWARD WHITE  FORMLA  Howard White,  candidate for the NDP nomination in Powell River-Sunshine Coast  FACT: The NDP is heavily favoured to win this riding whenever the next provincial  election is called. This means the MLA who will represent us for the next term will  likely be decided by the outcome of the NDP nomination race ��� and this is taking  place RIGHT NOWI If you want a say in the choice, you must obtain an NDP  membership immediately. By the end of the month it may be too late.  FACT: Howard White is a quality candidate, a lifelong Coast resident, a bestselling  author and nationally respected leader of the publishing industry who many feel  would become a cabinet minister in an NDP government ��� but it is up to us to get  him to Victoria first.  FACT: A powerful voice in the inner circles of government could mean great things  for this riding ��� better ferry service including a late sailing, a decent highway, a  clean environment, an affordable housing program, modern well-equipped schools,  expanded parks and recreational facilities, meaningful job creation, forest and fish  stock rebuilding ��� Howard White is committed to all this and more.  FACT: It has been over 50 years since our riding had an MLA from the Sunshine  Coast end. In past, the Powell River end had a big edge in population, but this is no  longer the case. The two areas are now about equal, and the south is growing much  faster. With all this change, wouldn't this be a good time to have a bright, energetic  resident from the south coast in Victors? Wouldn't this be a good way to raise our  profile and put an end to the neglect this area has suffered for so many years.?  NOW IS A TIME FOR CHANGE!  BUT: We must unite behind Howard's campaign fast to make it happen. As the nomination race began there were  approximately 500 party members in the riding, with almost equal numbers in the Powell River and Sunshine  Coast areas. At last report there were approximately 1000 members, still with almost equal numbers in each area.  It's a tight race, and yours could be the vote that makes the difference!  IMPORTANT: Before you can vote for Howard White's NDP candidacy you must obtain an NDP membership  card. The probable cutoff date for memberships is January 30. Once you have a membership, you will be sent a  postal ballot which will enable you to vote by mail.

He phones  Donald Holliday in Toronto,  hoping for encouraging news on  the manuscripts, the fellow San  Quentin graduate had agreed to  try and market for him.  Holliday, however, has  nothing positive to report.  Wilson attempts to find some  sort of work around London -to  no avail. Jobs are in short  enough supply for men with impeccable records - let alone an  ex-con of international notoriety.  Herb Wilson has no intention  of returning to a life of crime.  He contacts his favourite sister,  Violet, in Chicago. Violet, like  Christina, has remained loyal  and sympathetic over the years.  Married to a successful  businessman, she is not wanting  for money and agrees to lend  her brother enough to get him  back on his feet.  The grubstake from Violet  enables Wilson to purchase an  old car. He puts Christina under  a nurse's care and sets out  across Canada in search of  employment. The quest leads  Wilson all the way to British  Columbia and proves ultimately  fruitless.  The Depression has the whole  country in its grip and jobs seem  virtually non-existent. But the  trip does give Wilson his first  heady glimpse of the West  Coast.  Heartily impressed with the  mountains, the trees, the sea  and the salubrious climate, he  vows to return some day. The  old car is on its last legs. Wilson  sells it in BC and heads east  again by train.  Back at his mother's house in  London, Herb Wilson finally  strikes it lucky. He is hired by a  publication called The Farmer's  Advocate to build circulation  through Ontario.  Wilson, with his polite quiet-  spoken manner, does well as a  salesman. He starts a bank account and begins to plot out a  future for himself.  He has always been fascinated by the South Seas and  determines to save enough  money for a leisurely ocean  voyage to this romantic area of  the world. Then, perhaps, he  will settle down in British Columbia.  Wilson is banking on the  eventual sale of his books to  help finance this venture. But  his plans are about to be rudely  interrupted.  One chilly Sunday morning  on February 11, 1936, Herb  Wilson is enjoying a leisurely  breakfast with his mother. He  has spent a profitable week on  the road and is looking forward  to a relaxing day at home. Just  as he is finishing off a final  piece of toast and marmalade,  there is a sudden authoritative  knock on the door.  Wilson opens it to be confronted by three large men in  dark suits, obviously plainclothes detectives.  "Are you Mr. Herbert Emerson Wilson?" asks one of them,  flashing a badge.  "Why, yes. What's this all  about?"  "We're from the Toronto  Police Department. I'm afraid  you've been implicated in a major felony. We'll have to ask  you to come along with us."  Wilson is flabbergasted.  "Felony? What sort of  felony?"  "Peddling bogus bonds."  "But 1 know nothing about  any bonds," Wilson splutters.  "That's not the information  we have. In any event, we have  orders to take you back to  Toronto for questioning."  Herb Wilson is mystified but  he knows better than to argue  with cops. "My mother's a  semi-invalid," he tells them.  "I'll have to phone her nurse."  Convinced that the police  have simply made a mistake and  certain he can prove his innocence, Herb Wilson is not  even particularly worried - until  he and his escorts reach the  Main Police Station in Toronto.  Then the whole matter takes  on a much more serious complexion. He is officially charged  with planning the negotiation of  $100,000 worth of fictitious  bonds of the Portland Oregon  Water Company.  "This is ridiculous!" Wilson  protests. "I've never even heard  of the company. On what  grounds can you possibly be  charging me?"  "We have the sworn testimony of your accomplice," the  detective assures.  "We already have him in  custody."  "Accomplice! What accomplice?"  "Did you not serve time in  San Quentin Penetentiary with  a man named Donald  Holliday?"  "Why, yes. Holliday's been  acting as my literary agent.  What's he got to do with this?"  "That's all I'm at liberty to  tell you at present, Mr. Wilson.  You'll find out the rest in court.  Meanwhile you will be lodged in  the Don Jail until bail can be  set. I suggest you get yourself a  good lawyer. You can take him  away, sergeant."  To be continued...  Rhythms  of Life  ^3JW4^  A blue time  by Penny Fuller  In the grey days of a West  Coast January and February,  depression spreads faster than a  bad flu, and everyone seems to  come down with it. It's highly  contagious.  Pluto is moving through the  last six weeks of forward motion before going retrograde  (appearing to move backwards)  beginning February 19. This indicates a critical time for people  born November 8 to 12, May 6  to 10, August 8 to 12, or  February 5 to 9. Much of their  life has been disrupted over the  last year as Pluto formed a difficult aspect to their natal Sun,  and they have been experiencing  a "death process" which is currently reaching a peak in intensity.  This is also true of anyone  who was born when the Moon,  Mercury, Venus or Mars were  sitting around the middle of  Scorpio, Taurus, Aquarius or  Leo. So the chances are good  that even if you aren't going  through a particularly difficult  time, someone you know is.  This is where emotional survival  comes in.  It's not hard to identify people going through a harsh Pluto  transit, even if you don't know  them well. They can be very difficult to be around - very heavy  and intense, and are unlikely to  crack jokes, unless it's laced  with heavy black humour.  If you only know them  casually, you probably just  avoid them, but if this person is  someone you love, you need to  understand what's happening.  I've written quite a bit about  surviving Pluto transits. At this  stage of the process, it's important for friends and family of  people going through that process to have some survival tools.  The best I can do is offer you a  metaphor to work with.  You have walked this person  lo the gates of Hell, and they  have entered, while you are left  standing at the gate. You can't  go in there with them, you can  only wait for them. It's been  awful, and is getting worse.

SILVER, GOLD AND WHITE FILLINGS  The development of silver amalgam In the late 1800's was  reason for the dental profession and their patients to celebrate  ��� there was now a practical solution to tooth extraction.  Amalgam, made originally from silver shavings and mercury  which has since been refined, Is a durable filling material that  can be placed conveniently in one appointment, thus keeping  treatment costs down. It remains the filling material of choice  for most decay today.  However, gold fillings still have their place due to the exceptional qualities of the material. Gold filling material has the advantage of being able to expand and contract along with the  tooth so that the vulnerable space between tooth and filling  doesn't become enlarged. Gold fillings won't fracture and are  especially desirable for badly broken down teeth that require  considerable rebuilding.  Both gold and silver fillings have one common drawback:  they are esthetlcally unappealing to the growing fashion-  conscious segment of the population. This Is evidenced by the  Increased Interest by the public in the use of white filling  materials now being offered In dental offices.  The most widely used white filling material Is the composite  resin, made from plastic resin and filler particles of glass,  quartz or similar substances. Although this material looks  good, it has drawbacks. Resins shrink slightly when they  harden In the tooth which can cause gaps at the margin where  the tooth and filling join. Resin bonding agents can fill these  gaps, but the procedure is not without an element of risk. One  danger Is that as the filling contracts, the tooth may become  stressed and form microscopic crack lines. If this happens, the  tooth may become sensitive to hot, cold and chewing pressure.  Dentists accept that silver fillings on front teeth are  esthetlcally undesirable. Indeed, more and more "view" teeth  are being treated with composite fillings. However, for the  reasons above, and because these materials lack the strength  to withstand the chewing forces that back teeth are subjected  to, composite fillings are not generally recommended for the  chewing surfaces of back teeth.  This does not mean that we're destined to have metal fillings forever; advances In dental materials are very Impressive,  and more esthetic filling materials are constantly being  developed. Chances are, though, that there will never be a filling that Is the equivalent to normal healthy tooth material!

January 15.1990  11.  by Laura Russell  Chatelech Secondary School  welcomes Jenny Garrels, a  teacher librarian from  Queensland, Australia, who has  come to teach at Chatelech for a  year as a part of a teacher exchange program organized by  the BC Ministry of Education  and the Department of Education in Queensland.  Mrs. Garrels will be taking  the place of Lou Guest,  Chatelech's regular librarian  while Mrs. Guest spends a year  teaching home economics in an  Australian school. To get involved in the program Mrs.  Garrels answered an advertisement put in a local Australian  journal by Mrs. Guest looking  for a teacher and their family  interested in seeing Canada.  It took a lot of planning, but  "We have always wanted to see  North America particularly the  west," says Garrels. The  19-hour flight to Seattle with  stops in Cannes and Hawaii was  a big step for the family as it  was their first time travelling  outside Australia.  Since their arrival here on the  1  L?

Garrels says, "It's  very beautiful and 1 love the  scenery but it's hard to get used  to the cold."  The weather is sub-tropical in  Queensland and in Mrs. Garrels' home town, a small beach  suburb called Nerang, they enjoy a year long tourist season  and ocean swimming even in the  middle of winter.  Chatelech's small size will  also take some time to get used  to, as Mrs. Garrels' school in  Queensland had a total of 1500  students compared to Chatelech's mere 430.  The kids themselves, she says,  are pretty much the same in  both countries but in  Queensland, "they are a little  more regimented and must wear  uniforms to school," Garrels  says.  The Garrels have found that  the differences in Canada that  have really affected them are  the little ones rather than the  major changes.  For example, the light switches turn on upwards instead of  downwards, and there is, "so  much water in the toilet bowls  here, it's very hard to get used  to!" says Garrels.  Of course there is also the  problem of the natives  understanding an Australian accent.  "The funniest time," Mrs.  Garrels says, "was on our first  night here when my husband  asked someone if they had a  towel and they came back with  a bucket, they had thought he'd  said 'a pail'."  The shops are very much the  same here as in Australia  although Mrs. Garrels found  that we didn't have many butchers or newsagents. Newsagents are popular shops in  Australia that sell all the  newspapers and magazines.  Mrs. Garrels' children are  both adapting well to the new  home. Daughter Lauren who  has just started Grade one at  Gibsons Elementary School is  enjoying her new school and little Nicholas is already starting  to pick up a bit of a Canadian  accent.  The Garrels plan to see a lot  more of Canada before they go  home. "We will get a van and  travel around," says Garrels.  They are sure to have some  good memories to take back  with them to Nerang.

Feeling brave I ordered the hot and spicy Thai Grill, an  authentic Thailand dish made by the resident Thai cook,  Cam. My dish consisted of bamboo shoots, green peppers,  mushrooms, baby corns, onions and a variety of seafood.  You can also choose between beef and chicken.  The dish was certainly hot, but as I am a lover of spicy  food I managed to handle the fiery mixture, savoring every  delectable mouthful. Thank goodness for the sour cream  generously left behind for my partner's baked potato. As  any curry aficionado knows, dairy products are the best  remedy for a burning tongue.  My dining guest thoroughly enjoyed her chicken,  marinated in Teriyaki sauce, accompanied by a variety of  vegetables which were cooked just enough - a major accomplishment, she explained, considering how many  restaurants overcook their vegetables.  Our eight-year-old daughter must have enjoyed the  spaghetti, as she devoured every bit of the full serving.  Normally hard-to-please, she also pointed out that the lettuce in her salad was crisp and fresh.  For my appetizer I chose the homemade French Canadian pea soup, which was delicious with its big chunks of  ham.  To round out our "adventure in dining", and feeling  particularly decadent, we each ordered a yummy chocolate  sundae.

On January 26, 27 and 28 we  have our very popular mixed  spiel. A lot of out-of-town rinks  are going to be struggling to  find accommodation in our very  crowded little town on that  weekend.  We usually have 32 rinks in  for that bonspiel and a very  good time is had by all.  . If you are new to the community and would like to enter  the spiel, call Ed Hill, our  bonspiel committee chairman at  886-3925 and I am sure he will  find a draw for you.  We have a number of new  curlers starting during the second half of the season and we  are more than pleased to  welcome them to the club.  We do, however, have room  for more and if you are interested, just call the Gibsons  Winter Club at 886-7512 or  come up on the night when you  want to curl and we will try to  find a place for you.  Many of the people who have  joined this year are really enjoying themselves and you can't  beat the exercise.  Our times are Monday night  mens 7 and 9 pm; Tuesday night  ladies, 7:30 pm; Wednesday  night mixed, 7 and 9 pm; Thursday night mens, 7:30 pm; Friday night fun league, 7 and 9  pm; Monday ladies afternoon,  12 pm; seniors afternoons.  The seniors have been trying  to get a mixed league started so  if you are interested in joining  them just give the rink a call and  let them know. If they don't get  enough people interested this  year, I am sure they will be trying again next season so give  them your name to file away.  With the growth in our community, it won't be too long  before we will have a seniors  mixed league, I ant sure.

Coast News, January 15,1990  ; The dangers for pedestrians on the narrow roads of the Sunshine Coast seem not to have occurred to  ! this local family. -John Byrmide pinto  :  In Williamson Landing  Livestock cause problems  by Dave Fraser  Over the past few years  roaming pigs, chickens, turkeys  and marauding rats have caused  more than a few headaches for  property owners in the Williamsons Landing area.  And two recent letters to the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) from A.D.  Sherwin, president of the  Williamsons Landing Association, have reminded the SCRD  that such concerns will not fizzle  away.  Sherwin complained about  the location of a chicken house,  located within two metres of his  property line which, he claims,  contravenes the new SCRD Bylaw 310 which states that "an  enclosure or other structure for  poultry shall not be located with  15 metres of a parcel line."  Sherwin first raised the issue  back in August 1988, when he  complained that a neighbour,  Mr. Wayne Larsen, kept pigs  and poultry which attracted rats  to his property.  "These rats have invaded my  buildings and in order to protect  ISLANDS TRUST  Gambler Island Trust Committee  Notice of Public Hearing  NOTICE is hereby given that all persons who deem their interest in property affected by the following proposed bylaws will be afforded an opportunity to be heard on the  matters contained therein at a Public Hearing to be held in  the GAMBIER ISLAND GENERAL STORE, NEW  BRIGHTON, GAMBIER ISLAND, B.C. commencing at 10:45  am on Saturday, January 27,1990.  In general terms, the intent of the following proposed bylaws is as follows:  1. Proposed Gambler Island Trust Committee By-law No.  30 cited as "The Gambler Island Official Community  Plan By-law No. 110, 1976, Amendment By-law No. 2,  1989" is a by-law to amend Sunshine Coast Regional  District By-law No. 110 (The Gambler Island Official  Community Plan) by: (1) altering the title of Section 8.2.7  Private Institutional to read "Private and Public Institutional" and creating subsection 8.2.7.1 Private Institutional, which retains the existing Land Use Category  statement, and a new subsection 8.2.7.2 Public Institutional, with the statement that these areas are to be  utilized for community or public service uses as such  needs arise. (2) changing the land use designation  shown in the Official Community Plan Map for that portion of Block 13, Plan 3488, District Lot 847, Group 1,  New Westminster Land District, as shown generally in  the accompanying sketch, from the Residential Land  Use Category to the Private and Public Institutional  Land Use Category.  2. Proposed Gambler Island Trust Committee By-Law No.  31 cited as "Gambler Island Zoning By-Law, 1979,  Amendment By-Law No. 2,1989", is a by-law to amend  Gambler Island Trust Committee By-Law No. 12 (The  Gambler Island zoning By-Law) by: (1) altering the name  of the private Institutional 2 (PI 2) Zone where it  appears in PART V to the "Public Institutional 2 (PI2)  Zone", changing the Section 10.5 height restriction for  buildings and structures from a 7.5 metre maximum to a  10 metre maximum, and adding as Section 10.8 an off-  road parking requirement provision of one (1) parking  space per fifteen (15) square metres of gross floor area  (2) changing the zoning classification of that portion of  Block 13, Plan 3488, District Lot 847, Group 1, New  Westminster Land District, as shown generally In the  sketch referred to in the portion of this notice pertaining  to Gambler Island Trust Committee By-Law No. 30, from  the Settlement (S) Zone to the Public Institutional 2  (PI2) Zone.  Copies of the proposed by-laws may be Inspected at the  Islands Trust Office, 1106 Cook Street, Victoria, B.C. between the hours of 8:30 am and 4:30 pm, Monday to Friday  inclusive, excluding statutory holidays.  For the convenience of the public only, and not to satisfy  Section 957(2Xv) of the Municipal Act, additional copies of  the proposed by-laws may be inspected on the Public  Notice Board at the New Brighton Wharf, Gambler Island.  Cynthia Hawksworth  Manager  my property I have installed five  bait stations. Over the last few  years I have expended enough  poison to have eliminated at  least 50,000 rats."  Sherwin wrote that he asked  Larsen to move his chickens  ' 'which he did for a short period  but now have moved them  back." He also complained  about pigs which roamed onto  his property, rooting his grass  and leaving stool droppings.  "Also, I suspect that Mr.  Larsen is delibrately allowing  the pigs out to run free on his  property and consequently get  into my yard."  Shortly after, planner Geoff  Power replied that keeping  domestic farm animals was not  in contravention of local bylaws, and that no action will be  taken by the Regional District.  Not willing to give up the  fight, Sherwin complained  again in a December 27, 1989  letter. "We find this both offensive and dangerous. The pigs  seek moist areas and, consequently, root and defecate  around wells and water systems.  They have rooted up lawns.  This last summer a cougar was  shot after attacking one of the  pigs. They have not yet attacked  any children but they, and the  wild animals they attract, present a potential hazard."  Sherwin explained that a recent meeting was held to investigate the possibility of  rezoning the landing to prohibit  keeping livestock or enacting a  by-law to prevent livestock  from running at large.  Referring to By-law 310,  Sherwin argued that the SCRD  should "enforce the provisions  of this by-law and have the subject chicken house moved."  At its January 11 meeting,  the SCRD board referred the  matter to its planning department.  Rhythms  Continued from page 10  You're scorched and the  sulphurus fumes make it hard to  breathe. You can no longer see  your loved one but you can hear  them suffering.  You have only two choices:  continue to wait or leave. You  can't go through the Hell fires  with them, although you can  occasionally lend them encouragement with your voice.  This is the mythological  purification process. This person is experiencing a kind of  death, and it's very painful ��� but  necessary for them.  If you choose to wait for  them to complete this process,  you must take care of yourself.  Keep yourself as strong and  healthy as possible, and have  faith that this process  culminates in a rebirth. They  will smile, even laugh, again.  And although they will be a different person from the one who  entered the gates, the reborn  person will be stronger and  healthier..  Although the entire process  will continue until the end of  this year, by March a new stage  commences and the people who  have been dying in some way,  will begin to plant the seeds for  their own rebirth. Much of the  intensity will abate.  Watching someone you love  suffer, whether emotionally or  physically, and being impotent  to help them is probably the  hardest thing anyone can endure. Recognize this and nurture yourself accordingly. And  find a source of laughter. You  need to remember it still exists.  Wilson says Coast to  lose gas franchise fees  by Dave Fraser  Recent provincial legislation  will mean municipalities on the  Sunshine Coast and Vancouver  Island will miss out on millions  of dollars worth of franchise  fees from the Vancouver Island  Natural Oas Pipeline.  "We should band together to  get a fair franchise fee," said  Area A Director Gordon  Wilson at the January 11 board  meeting of the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD).  Wilson pointed out that  under BUI 55, enacted by the  province November 8, 1989,  municipalities do not have the  right to fix rates through franchise agreements.  The gas company is proposing a one per cent franchise fee  to each Vancouver Island and  Sunshine Coast municipality  through which the pipeline will  travel. The company proposes  the rate be fixed for 21 years.  Wilson notes that the provincial average for natural gas  franchise fees is three per cent,  based on the volume of gas  sold. Under other agreements  some municipalities, such as  Kamloops, earn millions of  dollars annually from natural  gas franchise fees.  Also, under the new bill the  Quilting  chance  The Sunshine Coast Quilters  Guild's second 'resource day'  has been planned for January  18 at Grecnecourt in Sechelt  starting at 10 am to 3 pm. The  program for this exciting day is  as follows:  10-10:30 am: Coffee, muffins  and registration for class;  10:30-12 noon: Quilted T-shirt  demonstration by Rojean  Trent, $3 fee with registration at  the door.  If you are not attending the  workshop come at noon and bring a lunch. 12-12:30 pm:  Lunch break; 12:30-1:15: Short  business meeting; 1:15-1:45 pm:  Fashion show followed by show  and tell.  ' ' This resource day is a perfect  way to be introduced to the art  of quilting.  gas company is not obligated to  file pipeline plans and safety  assurances with local municipalities.  Wilson suggested the regional  board write a letter of disapproval to the provincial government concerning the bill and to  show how municipalities will be  adversely   affected   by   the  pipeline.  Five members of the SCRD  board will also attend a January  26 meeting of the Association of  Vancouver Island Municipalities (AVIM) in Courtenay to  discuss the issue of gas distribution.

As the houses along  there come up for sale they  should be bought from the  Parks Department or whoever  has the jurisdiction. This area  would make a beautiful park.  Garbage along the beach.  This is a concern of a number of  people who walk along there  every day. They do approach  the town and something is done  to clean it up but it doesn't take  long to get back to the original  state.  A group of them also took  garbage bags and filled them up  last spring and the Teddy Bear  Day Care children do the same.  What was suggested was,  why not have bins like the one  in Kinnikinnick Park spaced  along there and/or especially in  the summer, pay children or  anyone who would be willing to  earn a few dollars cleaning up  the area.  Myself I think this is a problem that needs to be solved by  everyone who lives in the area.  But not only that, Davis Bay  beach is one of our very best  assets as far as tourism is concerned, so this is something that  should also concern the  Chamber of Commerce, other  such organizations, Sechelt, the  Regional District and also provincial tourism. Residents  should take their garbage home.  It wouldn't even hurt to takea  bit of someone else's also.  If you see someone littering,  politely ask them to pick up  their garbage. This would be  easier to do if there was a bin  you could direct them to.  KIRKLAND CENTRE  January 25 will be Robert  Burns Day at Kirkland Centre.

"Tourists are horrified that  the only cat's eyes (highway  reflectors) in my area belong to  cats," said Area A Director  Gordon Wilson at the January  11 meeting of the SCRD board.  "We don't even have white  lines. On a dark rainy night it's  hard to tell whether you're in  the right lane, or even on the  road."  In the past Wilson has attempted to establish a liaison  with the highways ministry, but  with little success. "Hopefully,  with the new minister (Rita  Johnston) that will change,"  Wilson added.  Director Jim Gurney, who  made the motion to arrange the  meeting, said the meeting  should deal with concerns about  the safety and condition of the  proposed Highway 101 Gibsons  by-pass from Langdale to  Sechelt.

VANDALISM  At my bridge group we were  talking about vandalism - why  and what could be done about  it.  When I drove home past  Whitaker Park I noticed that  someone had knocked over  about five of the posts that were  placed along Simpkins Road.  When I see something like this it  makes me feel sad, and also  very angry.  What's going to be next? It's  time we ordinary people take a  stand. We don't need knocked  over mail boxes and signs,  broken windows, stolen Christmas lights and decorations.  We also don't need cars passing on double lines. It's time we  started reporting these cars to  the police. They can't do much  but at least we give warning to  these jokers.  They may think twice about  doing it again.

As many of you are probably  aware, Canada Post has proposed significant changes to the  postal service in Halfmoon Bay.  This is part of the ongoing  "rural conversion" scheme,  whereby rural post offices are  replaced with postal facilities in  retail businesses.  I sympathize with the concerns already expressed by  many residents about the effect  of this "conversion" on qualtiy  of service. Problems can range  from the location of the retail  outlet to security of mail. But  those aren't the only flaws.  The rationale behind the  changes is to increase access for  customers to postal services, in  a cost-effective manner. Unfortunately, in communities  where 'conversions' have  already taken place, this has not  proven to be the case. These  "conversions" have had an  adverse effect on customers  across the country, reduced the  level of service for some rural  residents, and to date, even  Canada Post has acknowledged  that monetary savings have not  materialized.  In November 1989, the Postal  Services Review Committee  supported changes in rates for  Canada Post with the stipula  tion that "as a first priority,  (Canada Post) improve service  to households and small  business customers". The quality of service offered by Canada  Post to ordinary Canadians has  deteriorated as the emphasis is  increasingly placed on servicing  major corporate customers  first.  Canada Post has clearly  demonstrated that to achieve its  ultimate goal of privatization of  Canadian post office, service to  the public is expendable.  Canada Post must now change  its direction and develop  policies that serve all Canadians.  The post office in Halfmoon  Bay must be maintained. If  Canada Post would provide  sufficient funds to ensure the  quality of service the residents  of Halfmoon Bay deserve, this  important public service could  be protected.  My New Democrat colleagues and I will continue to  fight for equal and fair access to  postal services for all residents  of Canada. If you would like to  receive a copy of the Postal Services Review Committee report  mentioned above, or if you  would like to share your  thoughts on Canada Post,  please write to me c/o House of  Commons, Ottawa.

HWY 101, GIBSONS      ^^oKST 886-2664  Editor:  Re: Bus service on the Sunshine Coast. Upon discussing  the situation with some of the  residents of the Sunshine Coast  1 find the following:  1) Transit service (subsidized)  are trying to take over the bus  service on the Coast by  operating on or close to the  Maverick Coach Lines'  schedule with two buses following the same routes and the  timetables. Transit is servicing  the same ferries as Maverick.  2) It is understood that Transit gave up these routes at one  time as they found them to be  unprofitable.  3) It is understood that both  Maverick and the local Gibsons  Bus had to go before the  Department of Commercial  Transport to obtain running  rights on these routes.  4) It is also understood that  there is now a third Transit bus  either on order or soon to be  ordered.  5) It is understood that the  Transit buses are being subsidized by the taxpayers and there is  to be a further tax of five cents  per litre of fuel that is sold and  also a further surcharge of three  dollars on each Hydro bill.  6) My concern is that if  Maverick gives up the runs they  are contemplating the persons  Sechelt  Firemen  election  Editor:  The Sechelt Volunteer Fire  Department elected its new  chief and officers at its annual  general meeting held on  January 10.

If these runs are given up this  means the bus going on the  ferry with priority passage will  be dropped and the convenience  of boarding the bus and being  able to place your baggage in  the compartment and not have  to carry it off and on the ferries.  The writer is not even sure that  the Transit buses allow baggage  on the buses.  7) If we are in effect going to  be having transit why can they  cover the ferries that are not  currently being serviced by any  other public transport.  I am sure that there is a need  for bus service from other ferries which do not have any other  transportation meeting them.  Henry A. Hincks  Sechelt, B.C.  TERMINAL  Forest Products Ltd.

I've been  okay, fine actually. My symptoms are slight; a flare of heat  on the back of my left hand,  tingly skin above my knees at  night, little twitches and jitters  here and there, numbness on  my forehead and neck.  A lot of what happens  around me doesn't seem to  make it into my long term  memory. I write things down  and 1 make lists and I don't  worry too much about it. The  symptoms are not drastic or  prolonged and do not interfere  with my activities of daily life.  I feel that this disuse found  me through no fault of my own,  came out of the blue so to  speak. I also believe that my  choice of lifestyle and my  outlook on life will keep me well  from now on.

In the back of my mind,  tucked away in a tidy and hidden place, is the notion that if I  ever, God forbid, find myself  out of commission, I will buy a  fancy typewriter and do some  real writing.  A great event has happened  in our family. We have a new  baby. The pregnancy and birth  went very well. Baby is thriving  contentedly. He's almost three  months old and his big sister is  three and a half.

Police  news  GIBSONS RCMP  On January 5 a Tidy Tank  holding 100 gallons of diesel  fuel was stolen from the Howe  Sound Pulp Mill. Those with  any information call the RCMP  or Crimestoppers at 886-TIPS.  Police reported last week that  one person was charged for impaired driving and four were  given 24-hour suspensions. If  you suspect impaired driving,  report immediately the location  and description of the vehicle to  the RCMP.  There were two separate incidents of theft this past week.  One, a motorcycle and the  other, a jacket, both still under  investigation.  Bicycles turned in to the  RCMP are kept for 90 days in  their storage awaiting owners to  claim.  After that time one of three  things happens to a bicycle if  the finder does not claim it. If in  very poor condition, it is trashed. If parts can be used it is sent  to the Salvation Army workshop. If it is in good usable condition, it is handed over to the  provincial government agent for  sale at an auction.  On Wednesday, January 10  at 4:35 pm a private automobile  turning left from Highway 101  to North Road was struck  broadside by a West Howe  Sound firetruck going across  the intersection to School Road  on full emergency.  One firetruck had already  passed through the intersection  and the car turned into the path  of the second firetruck following the first, to a call from Abbs  Road.  There were no injuries and no  charges have been laid. Damage  was in excess of $3000 to the car  and about $1000 to the  firetruck.  THE 17%  RRSP. FOR  20 YEARS.

Coast News, January 15,1990  At Gibsons Council  Gospel Rock development discussed  by Dave Fraser  |  I  An application to rezone an  area off Cower Point Road  near Gospel Rock from R-4 to  R-l has been given preliminary  approval by the Town of Gibsons Planning Committee and  will be introduced to the regular  meeting of council for first and  second readings on January 16.  Town Planner Rob Buchan  has recommended a full public  hearing be held into the application into the proposed low-  density residential development  which developer Hayden  Killam, representing the Valentine Lands Corporation, says  will include 160 single family  dwellings with some town-  houses to follow.  At the January 9 Planning  Committee meeting Alderman  Ken Collins said he was reluctant to give the go-ahead to the  zoning amendment until seeing  the developer's building concept  for the property.  "It's quite a piece of real  estate there. It's part of the  aesthetics of the coastline."  Buchan pointed out that the  Municipal Act does not give  municipalities the right to require developers to describe  what they plan to do with land  when they apply for rezoning.  Conceptual drawings are  necessary when development  permits are applied for, he added.  Nonetheless, Collins said that  by rezoning the property the  municipality loses some control  over the area.  "I realize there is a series of  steps required (to get approval  for building) but we don't have  to have tunnel vision," he added.  Mayor Diane Strom noted  that requiring the developer to  be specific at the point of rezoning does not affect his ability to  apply for a subdivision permit.  But she assured Collins that the  R-l zoning will permit only  single family residences - a  minimum lot size of 7500 square  feet per parcel.  Killam, who was present at  Tuesday's meeting, said he  understood Collins' concerns  but assured him with large luxury lots the area's aesthetics are  a prime concern. He added that,  "There will be no major  changes from what you see  from Gower Point Road." He  added, however, that major  changes will be visible from the  water side.  It is expected the public hearing on the proposed development will be held on January  31.  [Royal Canadian Legion Branch 140 '  Sechelt  BINGO  Jan. 17/90  ,am $500 JACKPOT.  Doors Open 6 p  Early Birds 7:15 i  ****^************  WINTER  CLEARANCE  Fish farm compost  available this spring  by Caryl Worden  Sunshine Coast gardeners will  be able to add a new, locally  made compost to their plots this  spring, according to Dora  Glover of the Sunshine Coast  Aquaculture Association  (SCAA).  Reporting to the SCRD's Environmental Task Force January 12, Glover said the fish mort  composting project which  began in early November is  already showing its success.  The project was initiated  after   the   regional   district  notified fish farms that it would  no longer accept morts at the  Sechelt landfill. On a site adjacent to the dump, the morts  now get mixed with sawdust  from Bayside Saw Mills, solving  that company's problem of  waste disposal at the same time.  "We are regularly monitoring  to assure that the mixture is  composting properly and that  it's not attracting wildlife or  birds," Glover said.  A private developer will take  over the composting, which has  so far been run by the SCAA.  Glover told the Task Force that  the new operator plans to install  fish grinding equipment which  will produce a finer mixture and  speed up the process, enabling  them to handle the increased  number of morts which occurs  in the summer months.  "This is a nitrogen rich  material," Glover said.  "There's a great need for that  type of compost and gardeners  have already approached us  about using it."  The compost, which takes  two to three months to produce,  will be sold through local  nurseries according to Glover.  North Van's zoning approach  unsuitable for Gibsons - Buchan  by Dave Fraser  I  A proposal by the City of  North Vancouver to use zoning  to control levels of residential  rental accommodation is not  what the Town of Gibsons  needs.  So says Gibsons Planner Rob  Buchan, who was recently asked  by Gibsons Council to comment  on whether North Vancouver's  recent legislative moves could be  emulated here in order to ease a  chronic shortage of rental accommodation.  "I would...submit that it is a  dangerous move to attempt to  regulate the form of tenure of a  multiple dwelling building by  zoning, as it is the intention of  zoning to regulate the use of  land, and not the form of  ownership of a dwelling," notes  Buchan's written brief to council.  "Apart from these serious  legal overtones, there also occurs, thereby, the equally  dangerous social dilemma of the  segregation of areas of the  municipalty by zoning for "rental accommodation only - which  'ghetto' approach I perceive to  be  superficial   dressing  of  wounds inflicted by poor  political decisions in North  Vancouver in previous years.  "While the rental shortage in  Gibsons is apparent to all, the  reasons for this...are quite different from those being encountered in the. market place  on the North Shore. While we  share the dearth of new construction of rental housing in recent years with the situation in  North Vancouver, it is for quite  different reasons."  Buchan added that deterrents  against the construction of rental accommodation are not to  be found in the multiple family  regulations in the Town of Gibsons Zoning By-Law. He cited  the recently-completed  Westport apartments as examples of developers moving  swiftly to meet rental demand.  Play areas not  yet on our ferry  There's good news and bad  news for parents travelling to  Vancouver with young children.  The bad news is that the Queen  of Coquitlam, with its kids'  play area, has been taken off  the Horsehoe Bay/Langdalc  run now that the Queen of  Cowichan's re-fit is complete.  The good news is that by  summer, the Queen of Cowl-  chan will also have a children's  play area, according to Bill  Bouchard, marketing manager  with BC Ferries Corp.  The first play area was put on  board a ferry for the Swartz  Bay/Tsawassen run about a  year ago. "It was so popular  we'd get parents phoning to  find out when that specific boat  would be running," Bouchard  said. "It was the prototype, and  we fine-tuned it so that now our  plan is to put the play areas  aboard all the Vancouver Island  and Langdale vessels."
