 Victoria  protesters get light sentences  LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings,  VICTORIA, B.C  V8V1X4  82.1  handed down  ne Coast and  lace  on  the  Egmont resident Iris Griffith and Powell River man Murray  Kennedy obtained conditional discharges, apparently because  they only blocked the bulldozers working on the line on one  occasion each.  Others, Paula U urie, John l.cus, and Marguerite Muller.allof  Powell River, wh< blocked the bulldozers on more than one  occasion received 5100 Tines and suspended two-week prison  sentences.  The leader of the passive resistance movement against the  power line, Carl Rising-Moore of Powell River, received a $500  Tine and a suspended six-month prison sentence. The judge in his  summation said that the sentence given Rising-Moore was a light  one because evidence showed that time and time again Rising-  Moore did everything he could to avoid violence during the  protests.  Iris Griffith of Egmont told the Coast News that during the  trial in November it was revealed that at the time construction was  blocked, B.C. Hydro did'not have its permits in order for the work  being undertaken.  Also, at the time of the trial, the judge observed that nobody  had mentioned environmental or social problems hence he was  not treating it as a social or environmental issue.  Prior to sentencing those charged were allowed to call witnesses  to the stand to testify that the protest against the line was indeed a  social or environmental problem.  Called to the stand were Marvin Shafer, economist; SCRD  director Joe Harrison; and Dr. Ruth Shearer of Issaqua, Wash.  Shafer testified that his report to the government had  recommended that the Cheekye-Dunsmuir power line should not  be built pending further studies. Regional director Harrison  described the long history of unsuccessful attempts by local  government to modify B.C. Hydro's pre-arranged program in any  way at all, whether in matters of route selection or the use of  herbicides pn the proposed route.  Dr. Ruth Shearer, however, was the star witness. The molecular  geneticist has been studying during the past several years the  effects on mammals of exposure to herbicides and particularly the  two herbicides used locally by B.C. Hydro, 2,4-Dand pricloram.  Iris Griffith told the Coast News that, in her opinion, Shearer's  testimony left no doubt of the dangers of the herbicides. B.C.  Hydro professed to disbelieve that testimony concerning  herbicides had any bearing on the case but asked that their silence  not be interpreted as accepting the testimony of Dr. Shearer.  Defendant Iris Griffith said that at this point no appeal is being  planned against the verdicts handed down and a decision is  .pending on further legal action with respect to the Cheekye-  Dunsmuir power line.  Despite the guilty verdicts, Griffith said that in her opinion the  action taken was well worthwhile and had yielded several benefits.  "There was a tremendous educational benefit in getting Dr.  Shearer up here. We'll be hearing from her again," said Griffith.  The Egmont housewife said that she felt that the action taken to  continue the protest against the line was 'helping to turn the tide���  and it's turning fast���against herbicides.'  "We realized that North America has been watching this case.  We got calls from Washington, D.C. and from Ontario among  other places," said Griffith . "It is becoming apparent that a  network of people all over the world are interesting themselves in  environmental issues. They have been watching this case and  while it has not set any legal precedent we feel that it has broken  new ground."  Griffith said that the local group had not let those intereted in  preserving the environment down because 'we fought to a finish'.  Besides international support, Griffith said that those  protesting had been surprised by the depth of support locally.  "Many who say nothing publicly would tell us in supermarkets  and on the street that they approved of our efforts. This approval  does persuade us that we are acting for a wide portion of the  population."  On the witness stand before sentencing, Griffith told the judge  that she was a traditionalist from a way back. "I strongly believe  that people should not take the law into their own hands. The  system of laws that humanity has hammered out for itself should  be upheld at any cost. It is not in spite of this that 1 am in court, but  because of it," said Griffith ���  Serving tht Sunshine Coast since 1945  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  25' per copy on news stands  Delivered to every address on the Coast  March 24, 1981  Volume 35, Number 12  Chooses Payne access  Highways decision upsets Gibsons  ��� John Bumilda photo.  It's two minutes after two on Saturday afternoon and the Pender pool is beginning to fill up. Eager youngsters were waiting for the  opening of the pool, closed for the past seven weeks.  Signs agreement with SCRD  Pender pool is back in action  by Fran Bourassa  The doors of the Pender Pool are open as of last weekend. The  signing of the Management Agreement between the Aquatic  Society and the SCRD took place in the regional board office,  Thursday March 19.  "I want to thank the Society for their perseverance throughout  this ordeal," said board chairman David Hunter after the  formalities had taken place.  Wharf case reviewed  The municipality of Gibsons will renew its lease on the  government wharf for another three years. The decision was  taken at council's regular meeting of March 17.  This will be the municipality's third renewal of the three  year lease. Council originally leased the wharf from the  Federal Department of Ports and Harbours because the  federal government was considering banning parking on the  wharf.  Under the lease, the municipality can allow parking on the  wharf and while the number of cars on the wharf has been  the subject of complaints, council feels that to ban cars from  the wharf would only aggravate parking problems in the  lower village.  PEP wants to climb  A request, from the PEP Sunshine Coast Search and  Rescue group for $316.60 worth of climbing equipment has  been referred to the finance committee of Gibsons council.  A letter from the group Secretary, John Hind-Smith,  points out that though the group does not anticipate having  a great deal of rock climbing to do, it may conceivably be  called upon to lower or raise injured persons in cliff areas  and should know how to handle this type of equipment.  Another winner  Winning $50,000 on the March 6 Provincial draw will  help 48 year old Tom Constable, a self-employed  construction worker from Gibsons build a steady  foundation for him and his family.  "It's very hard to believe," said Tom, the father of three  children, "My wife Carrol and I were watching TV when the  Provincial number flashed on the screen...we even ended up  in an argument about what the number was...I'm sure glad  that after confirming it with the station...our ticket really did  match!"  "We haven't really made any definite plans for our win,"  said Tom, "but, it's sure nice to know that there are so many  doors open to us."  The ordeal is over for the Aquatic Society with their purpose  clearly stated in the Agreement. But Shirley Vader, president of  the Society, impressed and cautioned the board that future  commitments, using joint-use funding between the community  and the school board should be carefully scrutinized and all the  details worked out beforehand, details such as equal time  distribution for the use of the facility.  "The school board seems to have all the control over the joint-  use facilities, not the community," said Vader.  Before signing the Agreement, the Aquatic Society discussed  their budget with members of the board, including finance  committee chairman, Brian Stelck.  The seven-week shut down changed budget figures as losses  were  shown  due  to  the  pool's  inactivity.  The latter might cause complications and conflict in scheduling  as it was the understanding of the Aquatic Society that the school  board wanted to introduce a swim program for the spring. Vader  added that the Society had not yet received written confirmation  from the school board to this effect.  "The whole concept of joint-use has changed," said Vader, "It is  clear to us now that it is a community pool and the school board  arc only renters."  "We #cre giving them top priority and reduced rates, but now  our priority will be to attract the community to use the facility to  help with costs."  Director Hunter told the Society that a second look will be  taken by the board on the matter of joint-use facilities, as the  Roberts Creek community hall/gymnasium is being discussed as  the next project to benefit from such funding.  SCRD supports  Sechelt park  The Regional Board will send a letter of recommendation  stating their support for an application sent by the Village of  Sechelt council to the Ministry of Lands, Parks and Housing in  their efforts to acquire a new park area within the Village of  Sechelt.  Application has been made for crown properties totalling 320  acres for district lot I472 for parks and recreation purposes and  district lots 1646 and 1647 for development on an incremental  basis.  Lands, Parks and Housing have requested that a number of  ministries and the regional board submit reports in connection  with Sechelt's application for these properties pending tinal  approval. So far all looks in favour for the procurement of these  lands for the village.  A report by Gibsons' Village Planner, Rob Buchan caused a  furore in the council chambers at the Planning meeting held  Monday, March 16, when Buchan reported the new position of  highways; that Phase One of the new re-alignment of Highway  .'101 shall by-pass Gibsons and return to meet the existing highway  via Payne Road.  Buchan was reporting to council on a meeting held March 9,  with representatives from the Ministry of Highways and planners  ���'from the regional board on the matter of the Gibsons by-pass  The outburst came after Buchan's announcement that only one  access would be built by highways instead of the three in a  previous highways position (Payne, Sunnycrest and North  Roads).  - Highways have decided not to connect the Sunnycrest/ Gilmore  extension to the by-pass as shown on the Ministry's 'Highways  Network Plan' of November I, 1980, but to under-pass it.  ., Mayor Lorraine Goddard asked if there was anything in writing  Hating the highways previous opinion stating that highways had  wjfjfered as many accesses to the by-pass as the village desired.  *���tfieiT position seems tdehthgefrom week tb weeKadd morith  to month", replied Buchan, "but I will again request in writing  why they have come to these decisions".  Further in Buchan's report was the ministry's unchanged  position in their requirement for Sunnycrest to be directed south  from a cross-intersection at Highway 101 through the existing  Davis road subdivision, "when development justifies its  construction".  Buchan expressed his disapproval saying he favoured a T  intersection onto Highway 101 over the 'X' intersection by  highways. "We would only be duplicating the Pratt/Mahon  connection. 1 see no reason why there should be a southerly  extension of Sunnycrest Road into the Davis Road subdivisions."  Alderman Larry Trainor asked "What about the Davis Road  people", the answer given him by the Mayor and the Planner  seemed to indicate Highways' lack of concern over their problem.  A letter is to be sent to the Davis Road residents inviting them  to attend the March 23 meeting to be held in council chambers  with the Ministry of Highways representatives.  During a telephone conversation with Richard James from the  After one hour in the water  Ministry in Victoria, Rob Buchan was told that the Ministry  would be prepared to include in Phase One, at provincial cost, the  development of either Cemetery Road or Reed Road to the  intersection of Gilmour and Reed Roads. By then opening the  section of Sunnycrest to the Reed/Gilmore intersection, on the  cost basis of 50% developer, 25% provincial and 25% municipal,  access to the Sunnycrest area from the by-pass, via Stewart / North  Road connection would be achieved.  "The province is trying to get out of their commitment to us and  pay only 25% of their share instead of 50%," explained Mayor  Goddard.  Alderman Bill Edney questioned if Highways would still be  constructing a left hand turn from the ferry for those wishing to  come to Gibsons via the Lower Road.  Buchan replied in the affirmative, as the need for residents to  have access to their homes would necessitate such a turn.  ������  ON THE INSIDE...

The couple, whose 12' rented  boat had been swamped almosi an hour before, were about three  hundred yards off the port bow when Du/ic ordered the ship to  reduce speed and swing to port.  Duzic called Captain Larry Farr to the bridge and gave the  "emergency boat stations" order over the ship's public address  system before going below to supervise the boat launching.  The boat, commanded by Chief Officer Reg Whitman, plucked  the couple from the water and returned them immediately to the  ship. The couple, both in shock and numb from the cold, were  taken to separate quarters, she to the Firsi Aid room, he to the  cook's mess, where they were changed into dry clothes loaned by  the cook's mess.  Duzic had particularly high praise for Kirsi Aid attendant Ken  Michael and Cleaner Mary Mansfield, who changed the couples'  clothes, wrapped them in electric blankets and kept them supplied  with hot coffee, and said thai the whole crew performed "very  quickly and very smoothly" throughoul the emergency.  Blain challenges  Gibsons Council  Former Gibsons Mayor Lome Blain may have lost one battle  with the present council at Tuesday night's meeting, but he gave  no sign of being discouraged as he tackled council on yet another  reading of the fine print.  At the previous council meeting, Blain had questioned Mayor  Goddard's right to recall the Payne Road access recommendation  under Section 240 of the Municipal Act, arguing that the Mayor  had stated no definite "objections", as required by that section of  the Act, as her reason for recalling the motion.  At the time, the Mayor stated that she had been on vacation  when the recommendation was made and considered it of  sufficient importance that she wished the question re-debated in  her presence.  Alderman Trainor moved that Mr. Blain's objections to the  Mayor's interpretation of Section 240 go to the Ministry of  Municipal Affairs for adjudication, and at Tuesday night's  Please turn to Page Twenty. /  Coast News, March 24, 1981  Sunshine. ��'  The  A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER  Published at Gibsons, B.C. every  Tuesday, by Glasslord Press Lid.

We are all, ofa certainty, relieved thai  the brouhaha is finally over and surely all  concerned arc wishing that Ihe misunderstanding had never been allowed lo  develop to the extent lhat il did.  Willing as wc are to turn from ihe  incident for a final time, it would be well to  heed Shirley Vader's warning about Ihe  future of joint-use facilities. The concept of  the expensive buildings required within the  community being shared thus avoiding  cosily duplication is as exciting a concept  today as it was when il was first conceived.  The school board has a track record,  however, of jealously guarding its  facilities, whether some of the money has  come from other community sources than  ihe school budget or not. Nor is this the  fault of the school board, ll is significant  thai Ihe school district found it necessary  lo send its proposed agreement to Victoria  five times before getting it approved.  The authority in matters educational is  in Victoria and perhaps that is where  regional representatives should go to iron  out future agreements. The concept of  joint-use of facilities is a good and sensible  one. To avoid bitterness, however, it would  be well to ensure that access and bookings  lo such facilities is not the monopoly of the  school board. Otherwise frustration and  bitterness will be the product of a concept  which holds the promise of better Ihings.  Any suggestions?  A headline in the Business Section of the  Vancouver Sun a week ago lasl Saturday  indicated that the proposed gas line was a  cause of dispute between B.C. Hydro and  the provincial government, those old allies.  A reading of the article indicated lhat  Ihe source of disagreement wasihal Hydro  wanted   to   supply   natural  gas  to  the  industrial users on Ihe island and the  government opposed such distribution.  The question that occurred was: If B.C.  Hydro wants to supply natural gas to  industrial users on Vancouver Island, whal  is the Cheekye-Dunsmuir power line, now  estimated at a cost of $1.8 billion,  supposed lo be for? Any suggestions?  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AGO  The contract for clearing two acres  of land on Reed and Henry Roads has  been awarded to Shoal Developments.

At a public meeting of the Sechelt  Vicinity Planning Committee, 50 locals  considered three proposals for the  future growth of Sechelt. Regional  Town, Public Recreation Centre and  Resource Development Centre were  the ideas brought forward. A compromise was decided between the no-  growth principle of the first idea and  the playland of the other two proposals.  Area A Director. Jack Paterson is  concerned over problems that might  arise with the Regional District taking  over the function of maintenance ol  sewer systems. The cost to the  taxpayer will be 1/4 mil.  TEN YEARS AGO  The one-day teachers strike  brought out 23.000 teachers throughout the province. Teachers' Association President John Burnside said  that the 98% of local teachers honouring the strike call that protested the  inadequate pension presently provided retired teachers was the highest  percentage in the province.

Gibsons bound cars are instruced to  slow down on approaching Pratt Road.  The Federal Department of Public  Works is considering the possibility of  constructing docking facilities at  Selma Park.  At an Area Water committee meeting  in Gibsons Health Centre, Martin  Dayton, professional engineer, estimated a minimum of $825,000 would  be required to set up a water district  system based on 6 inch piping.

Cape Scott. 1914. Settlers of Danish ancestry had organized a colony here in 1897,  and had built this hall as a community project beside the road to their Hansen  Lagoon dyke. The colony was brought to a halt within a few years, and the land  made available in 160-acre blocks for individual ownership. Immigrants from  Britain and from almost every country in Europe made their way to this remote  area. They built homes, cleared land, and planted gardens. An agricultural  association was formed, and by the time of this photo there Was enough interest to  stage a fair. Settlers walked miles along forest trails for a brief break from pioneer  loneliness. Unfortunately, as they gathered, the world was becoming embroiled in  the Great War. By the time it ended, their homes were left vacant. Cape Scott  Provincial Park now commemorates these doomed ventures. Photo courtesy  Wadey and Vick families. L.R. Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  Reflections  A teacher who  cared about us  There is truly a myriad of  materials that comes across  the desk of a small town  newspaper editor every week.  Some of them are fascinating,  some passably interesting,  and much the larger part of  the materials is junk which  need never have been sent to  anyone at any time.  In the second category, thai  the  'passably  interesting  lhat they get the best efforts  out of people by working  with them; by helping them to  do their best; by showing  them how to be more productive.  There may always be a few  people who have to be watched and occasionally reprimanded to get on the  ball. But the fewer the better.  The need for too much push-  is a strange  little magazine# ing usunlly indicates too little  entitled    Bits    and    Pieces j  leadership.  which manifests itself entirely  unbidden from Fairfield, New  Jersey. It describes itself as  being: "A monthly mixture of  horse sense and common  sense about working with  people", and occasionally I  find that I can leaf through its  pages with some pleasure.  The most recent issue of the  tiny magazine seems to be  primarily concerned with  leadership and, since leadership papers have been in the  news of late, I thought I might  pass along a couple of excerpts from  the  little  book.  "General Eisenhower used  to demonstrate 'the art of  leadership with a simple piece  of string. He'd put it on a table  and say: Pull it and it'll follow  wherever you wish. Push it  and it will go nowhere at all.  It's just that way when it  comes    to    leading    people.  "Leadership isn't something lhat comes automatically  just because you have people  working for you. Leadership  depends on followers. If  people don't follow a manager's lead voluntarily - if they  always have to be forced -  that person is not a good  leader.  "What do you think the  'job' of leadership really is?  Is it to tell those who work for  you exactly what you want  done - and to stay on top of  them until they do it? If that's  how you see your job you  don't have the viewpoint it  takes to lead successfully.  Leadership depends on the  ability to make people want to  follow - voluntarily.  "Do you think most  employees need to be goaded  and prodded to do what you  want done? Threatened or  reprimanded, if necessary?  People who are successful  leaders don't think that way.  They work to inspire people -  to make them want to cooperate.  "Managers who prod rather  than lead rarely get the best  out of those who work for  them, because people who  work for prodders have little  incentive to do more than just  get by. All they want to do is  keep such a 'boss' off their  backs.  "Effective    leaders   know  Witfiout any comment I'm  going to pass on to another  excerpt from Bits and Pieces:  "Up-and-coming supervisors and managers are always  eager to increase their skill  at leading and managing  people. They read books, take  courses and some even bone  up on the latest findings about  human relations.  "That's all to the good,  provided they don't forget one  very important fact. In the  long run, no techniques, no  matter how clever can conceal  the motives people have in  their hearts. The right motives  are even more important than  the right moves.  "What do people value  most in a boss? The majority  of us want someone who is  honest, truthful, and straightforward, someone we know  really has our interests at  heart, someone we can trust.  '"To give real service  you must add something  which cannot be bought or  measured with money ��� sincerity and integrity' wrote  Donald Adams. This is some  thing that can't be faked, at  least not for long. If you have  the best interests of your  people at heart it will show in  your actions time and time  again. You'll build a reservoir  of goodwill.  "Unfortunately, sometimes  leaders aren't all that -concerned about the welfare of  their people, but want only to  use and manipulate them. No  matter how glib such people  are, or how clever as amateur  psychologists, their motives  will show through. They're  bound to.  "No manager can create a  feeling of mutual trust with  people overnight. It takes time  and effort. Nor can sincerity  be turned on and off like a  water faucet. People immediately get suspicious when  leaders go out of their way to  ���be nice to them'. They sense  they're probably after something when they do.  "Leaders who are sincere  don't have to advertise the  fact - it's visible in everything  they say and do and soon  becomes common knowledge  to everyone. Likewise, insincerity cannot be hidden,  disguised or covered up no  matter how competent a  manager may otherwise be.  "The only way to keep the  goodwill and high esteem of  the people you work with is to  deserve it. No one can fool  all of the people all of the  time. Each of us, eventually,  is recognized for exactly what  we are - not what we try to  appear to be."  Spring  In whal purpose, April, do you return again?  Beauty is not enough.

Edna St. Vincent MUhty  by Vorn Gimbrerht  He was balder and paunchier  than I remembered him but his  ambling walk, his deliberate,  almost tedious speaking style  and his habitual eye-rolling  mannerism hadn't changed  with ihe years.  Henry Klassen, one of my  high school teachers, came to  sit beside me as I watched a  basketball tournament recently  in the new ME1 gym in  Clearbrook. He's been leaching al the school for close to 30  years, putting students to sleep  with his dry teaching methods  but winning the respect of the  same students by other means.  We chatted for awhile about  times past. Then I asked him.  "Do you still pul personal  questions on your tests, like  'Why is Mr. Klassen smiling  today'?" ���  "No," he chuckled, surprised  at the question, "but I work in  personal things in my classes  sometimes. A couple of Fridays  ago I put on a skit about a  prank I pulled on two of my  sisters when I was 12."  This was a side of him 1  hadn't known about. He related the prank in considerable  detail. It involved getting a  friend lo dress up as a ghost to  scare the girls, who had dressed  up as their parents and were  walking down a road to meet  the real Mr. and Mrs. Klassen.  "My dad was a big man. over  300 pounds, so my sister had to  use a great number of pillows lo  make herself fat. The students  really laughed when I called  this character Wayne Cody (the  mammoth Seattle Supersonic!'  play-by-play announcer). Well,  when we ran from the 'ghost'  this sister ran into a barbed  wire fence and 1 tripped and fell  on the road. Some of Ihe  clothes were found hanging on  the fence Ihe next morning."  For some reason, Henry  Klassen was known as "Sam"  during my high school days,  though this term was used only  in private. Then, as now, he  taught social studies, geography and math. He's teaching  more math than he'd like to and  is getting tired of teaching in  general, not surprising since  he's been at one school for so  long, without a sabbatical.  "I'm thinking of trying  another career for the last few  years (before retirement)," he  told me, but I somehow doubt  that he'll break the pattern of  his life.  In the old days, at least, Sam  was an uninspiring teacher,  covering the required material  methodically but without much  flair. Occasionally he taught  P.E., though taught is a  misnomer. I remember him  strolling out to the Softball field  long after we'd picked teams.  His role was to observe us  benignly as we played or call  balls  and  strikes.  The  best  things about his classes were his  digressions.   It was no great  "  trick to sidetrack him on to  hockey. A staunch Maple Leaf  Ian. he had plenty to rhapsodize about in the glory days of  Armstrong. Pulford, Mahov-   :  lich.  Brewer. Bower and the   ���  rest.  Sam  was vice-principal  in   ���  charge ol the junior high school   '  for a while but showed little   '  interest   in   moving   up   the ���"  educational ladder. For several  years he divided his summers  '  between taking courses al UBC  to  complete  his  degree and '.  picking strawberries with his  wife and five daughters.  Although no great shakes as  a teacher, Sam was well liked ,  because we sensed that he cared  about us. Little touches like  personal comments on report  cards ("I hope you have a good  time at the new swimming pool  this summer." he wrote when 1  was in Grade 9) helped us '  forget that his classes weren't  too thrilling. Perhaps his chief  merit, however, was his willingness to let us use the gym.  A group of us would often  got the keys to the gym on a  Saturday and be able to play  unsupervised for hours, as long  as we'd set up the foldingchairs  later for whatever function was  to be held. I remember how  ashamed wc felt when we had  to walk to his house one '  evening to tell him we'd broken  a floodlight on the stage by  kicking a ball around. After a  warning and promises that the '  incident wouldn't be repeated,  we continued to use the gym as  before.  Talking to him the other  night, with two former teammates in Ihe row behind me,  next  to our bearded former  coach, it seemed thai no time  had   elapsed,   nothing  had  occurred   in   Ihe   intervening  years. Soon I'd be back in the  classroom   again   and   Sam ;  (oops. Mr. Klassen) would be  at  the front with a pointer,  tracing the course of the Fraser  River   on   a  wall   map  or;  laboriously explaining a geo-.,  metrical theorem. ;  A shout from the crowd cut ;  through my reverie. 1 turned to  my former teacher but he had  moved silently away. I saw him  standing beside another former  student who was now a teaching colleague at MEL  I was disappointed, for I had  planned  to say something  profound and meaningful a-  bout our encounter. Turning  my attention back to the game,  I pondered what 1 might have  said.       Probably something  maudlin  that  would  have,  embarrassed us both. Yes, it-  was probably better this way,:;  no sense making a big deal'-  about it. Perhaps the next time ,  I'd think of the right thing toj;  say. i  mmmtmtM  MtM*a^MM  mm  MMMhMMI  WM Letters to the Editor  Coast News, March 24, 1981  Joint-use, community pays  Editor:  The pool is open! The  mechanical parts will run the  same but the heart of it now  beats to the tune of a different  drummer. Let me explain.  The pool was conceived as a  joint-use facility whereby the  School Board and Regional  District agreed under a master  Joint-Use Agreement to share  in such facilities "to the  greatest extent possible, the  capital and operational costs  for the mutual benefit of  school and community". This  did not happen.  Charles Lee, on behalf of  Area A, made a valiant  attempt to bring this to the  attention of the Regional  District but was thwarted by  the powers that be. Subsequently, an agreement was  signed which enables the  School Board not to participate  in any operational cost sharing  even though the pool saves the  school several hundreds of  dollars of heating costs yearly.  The extra cost will be borne by  Area A taxpayers. Thank you,  Charles, for your sincere  efforts on our behalf. I truly  hope far more consideration is  given to joint-use agreements  in future before a facility gets  into the problems of the  Pender Pool!  Parents should understand  the present state of the school  swim program. The pool  originally provided a first  rate swim program, giving the  schools top priority in programming at a reduced rate.  Mr. Roy Mills told me this  should not have been done  and that in future the School  Board wishes to be treated  "as any other renter" of the  facility. So be it.  The Aquatic staff had to  rearrange community programs in January when the  school swim programs were  abruptly cancelled by the  School Board. Community  programs replaced previous  school swim times. These  programs will now resume  and carry through Spring and  it is possible the schools may  not fit in to the rearranged  program. The pool staff has  always tried their utmost to  accommodate the schools but  it was made very clear by the  Charge seen 'ludicrous'  Editor:  We are especially fortunate  here on the coast to have a  newspaper whose editor, reporters and columnists examine the issues in a way that  is needed, so the charge of  'yellow journalism' made in a  letter to you last week is, in  my opinion, ludicrous. The  issues you have raised regarding our educational system should be addressed and  not met with "knee jerk"  name calling.  The present Board of  School Trustees may not be  just a rubber stamp for its top  administrators, but I would  suggest there is a gnawing  doubt about this in the minds  of many parents, taxpayers  and teachers. This suspicion  is further increased in anyone  who   has    attended    board  meetings when it appears  evident that the "business  of the day" has been decided  before it is brought to the  table. It would seem to some  visitors that many of the  issues on the agenda deserve  some questioning and debate  and a few eyebrows are raised  when there isn't.  If it should turn out to be  true that power has been  transferred from the elected  trustees to paid administrators, or is in the process of  being transferred, it would be  disastrous for the democratic  concept of local control of  education in this area.  Keep up your courageous  investigative reporting. It  serves the vital interests of  this community.  Sincerely,  Frank L. Fuller  School Board our efforts were  not appreciated.  Also, for Mrs. West's  information, the School  Board's decision did cut the  previous swim program in half  and, in fact, if a child from  Madeira School swam last fall  in 1980, he will not have  school swimming at all in  1981 under the Board's  presently proposed swim program. At any rate, the Aquatic  staff to date have received  no copy of any proposed  swim program from the School  Board.  I feel the School Board's  decision virtually destroyed  the successful swim program  that was in progress, the excellent rapport between Aquatic staff and teachers and the  once-perfect "fit" of school  and community programs. I  am very disappointed in the  School Board's decision and  do not feel it was given the  "utmost consideration" assured me by the chairman of  the board, Mr. Don Douglas.  The big losers are our children for whom we built the pool  and hoped to make it an  integral part of their community and school life.  I would like to thank the  Coast News for its support on  this issue and especially  John Burnside for daring to  expose the tip of the bureaucratic iceberg that threatens to  A 'graceless' apology  Editor:  To date. I have refrained  from addressing myself to the  ill-conceived, irresponsible,  unrest-arched, and distortion  and inaccuracy-riddled ful-  minations against educational  administration and special  programmes which continue to  stain the pages of the Sunshine  Coast News. Like Mr. Douglas  in his letter to the Coast News  last week and Mr. Mills before  him. I agree that nothing  anyone could say would be  likely to alter the total lack of  objectivity which taints the  editorial outlook of that publication towards educational  administration.  The graceless "apology" over  the unsubstantiated and libellous accusation levelled against  District Superintendent Denley is a case in point. (March 10  issue. Coast News.) As no-one  pointed out the rather amusing  error in the headline over the  relraction, however. 1 thought I  would do so.  An Apology and a Commendation, the headline reads.  Commendation of anything to  do with educational administration is hardly what one has  come to expect from the  jaundiced view of that function  in the pages of the CoasI News.  No doubt, "Condemnation" is  what Mr. Burnside meant to  ���I* ******  NDP  xO��*sr%  Let yourself  DLOO01  Burst upon the spring scene  in just-right fashions  featuring luscious  colours,  Petal-soft  Knit Suits!

Ours  was a typical case which  exemplified the "bureaucratic  bungling" that can and will  occur when people will not sit  down and communicate. We  were willing. The only reason  the pool is re-opened was that  the needs of the community  were considered top priority.  The end result is that we  still have a fine community  pool which will cater to the  needs of the community. The  Aquatic staff seems excited  and eager to put new ideas to  work at the pool for the fun  and enjoyment of our residents. These ideas include  food and drink vending  machines, tables and chairs  to sit, eat, drink and watch  activity at the pool, a finished  fitness room, and a sun  bathing patio with direct  access to the pool. We hope to  make the pool a place to come  and lounge, relax, play and as  a last resort maybe even get  some exercise. We need your  help and your ideas - see you  at the pool I  Sincerely,  Shirley Vader  P.S. The opinions expressed  in this article are those of the  writer.  say, for the second part of Ihe  editorial goes on in effect to  retract the retraction by endeavouring to twist together  two disparate elements to the  disparagement of Mr. Denley:  the educational retreat, a  function of Professional Development funded by both the  Board of School Trustees and  the Sunshine Coast Teachers'  Association; and the District's  swimming programme which is  in no way beholden to funding  from the Teachers' Association  being entirely the responsibility  of the Boa rd of School Trustees  and its paid advisors through  the Physical Education section  of the District's Operating  budget.  Yours sincerely.  Allan .1. Crane.  Editor's Note: The 'commendation' in the editorial in  question was for the Pender  Aquatic Society's decision not  to disband.

Thad  assures me, however, that the  long-term effects of my hallucinogenic journey will be both  therapeutic and lasting.  Shortly after this, the Pen-  dergasts leave Sully's Cove.  They have provided me with an  oasis of creative and intellectual companionship in a largely  barren town and I miss them  deeply. Robbed of this stimulating friendship, I am flung  hack on the company of loggers  and mill-workers. It had seemed sufficient or at least tolerable, in other years. It seems  so, no longer. I play my  uncertain role in their rough-  and-ready world and yearn for  kindred souls. Big Bart Clapperton is like a breath of fresh  air in this regard and the  knowledgeable broth of his talk  certainly makes the logging go  easier. But it simply isn't  enough.  I have largely eschewed  Vancouver for the past couple  of years. Now I take to going  there almost every weekend in  search of elusive goals and  more-eccentric people.

The wheels, inadvertently set  in motion by Jack Kerouac  with the publication of his  novel On The Road, eight  years earlier, have begun to  spin faster and stranger. The  highways are strung with odd  travellers.  Insistently as hobos during  the depression, they have  begun to converge on Vancouver. For some, it is only a  breathing space on the hypnotic odessey to San Francisco  and fabled, dangerous Mexico  beyond. For others, it will  become a new home. These  early wanderers hail mostly  from the large eastern cities -  Winnipeg, Toronto, Montreal.  They arrive in buses and last-  gasp jalopies but, more frequently, in the thumbed-down  cars of obliging strangers.  While in the city, these road-  weary travellers generally find  floor-space in semi-condemned  rooming-houses,    leased   for  1<��.  c>  FRIDAY  DINNER  SPECIAL  Hearty  Beef Stew  with Dumpllngi  & Frcih Scones  e  Teredo Square, Sechelt       Reservations Advised        885-9962  Garden Bay    *  Dining Lounge  Please Phone  For Reservations  ,883-9919  ��  Friday Night  Special:  Dinner for %  ���14.*  Rolls.

One of the busiest and best-  known of these is a rambling  ruin of a place near the  Granville Bridge called Skeet's  Castle.  I am introduced to this  strange house and its definitely  off-beat occupants by an old  scrulptor friend from my art-  school days called Floyd  Staves. Floyd, strictly a city-  denizen, has stayed on top of  counter-culture developments  during my country sojourn and  knows everyone worth knowing in the burgeoning underground.  At least half the denizens of  Skeet's Castle, at any given  time, are simply passing  through but there are several  semi-permanent tenants. Foremost among these is Skeet  Simmons, the titular landlord,  a thin, excitable character with  shaggy, brown hair and a lot of  moxie for his twenty one years.  Skeet has spent a couple of  years in California and picked  up a lot of esoteric ideas plus a  fondness for various illegal and  quasi-legal substances. He  firmly believes that some  manner of psychedelic milen-  nium is just around the corner.  While I have reservations  about this, my recent mescaline  experience has certainly left me  with an open mind on the  subject. Skeet has never tried  this particular drugand quizzes  me at length about the effects.  As well as words can convey, I  describe them to him. Sometimes he urges me to try other  psychedelic materials but I  decline at this point. The more-  horrifying moments of the trip  are still vivid and, chary to  undergo them again, I remain  largely alcohol-oriented.  Skeet's castlemates are a  diverse bunch to say the least.  There is his current lady, Fawn,  a tall, pretty girl with dark,  elsewhere eyes, who seldom  speaks. There is a young, black  poet called Sidney who is  inoffensively gay and carries an  unquenchable torch for my  sculptor friend, Floyd. There  are Lance and Mindy Fallon,  both married and musicians,  who share the basement suite  with a monemental collection  of blues records. And there is  Pancho Villa, a ebullient  Mexican kid who came north  with Skeet to see "thees  Canada." Finally, there is  Ingrid, a gregarious Swedish  woman who was once an  airline-stewardess and is, Skeet  assures me, quite mad.  I find them all quite fascinating, particularly the blues-  loving Fallons. I spend much  time in their cluttered pad,  attempting to sing at impromptu jam-sessions. These wine-  fuelled blues-bouts are more  rancous than anything else but  we persevere. I suppose it is the  Fallons more than any other  factor, that keeps drawing me  back to Skeet's Castle. I  become a frequent visitor.  My existence becomes more  and more schizophrenic. It  pendulums between the underground world of the city and  the very much aboveground  world of Sully's Cove. I am a  weekend hippie and a weekday  logger. The twain have not  begun to meet at this point.  To be continued.  Chimney  Cleaning  & Maintenance  .

General Notes: This week  brings contradictory astrological conditions. The Sun,  Venus and Mars oppose both  optimistic Jupiter and pessimistic Saturn. Gloomy spells  following reckless enthusiasm  means a time of indecision and  doubt.  Romance-planet Venus enters fiery Aries announcing the  arrival of Spring and the start  of many passionate love-  affairs.  Neptune 'stationary' on  Thursday coincides with major  oil spills, gas leaks and mysterious sea-related incidents.  ARIES (March 21-April 19)  Mars in your sign opposing  Jupiter and Saturn is responsible for rushed activities, poor  timing and sudden lack of  confidence. Recently started  project may hit snags and slowdowns. Thursday's long-distance message contains hopeful  but impractical suggestions.  Those born March 26 - 27  should anticipate a series of  TAURUS (April 20 ��� May 20)  This could be your most  tiring and frustrating time of  the year.

Off the  shelf  by John Moore  Overheard at Gramma's  pub the other day during a  discussion of language and its  peculiarities it was Bruce  Wilson who got the final word  in an argument about spelling  by saying, "Don't talk to me  about phonetic spelling until  they stop spelling it with a  'ph'."  Phonetic spelling, defined  by Webster's Dictionary is  "a system of orthography in  which words are spelled  according to their sound in  pronunciation and not according to tradition or conventionality." Some bright spark  in the educational system a  decade or so ago developed a  program of teaching primary  students to read and spell  phonetically. I've never been  able to find out what the  rationale for this experiment  was, but I have met some of  the guinea pigs in later life.  One of those experimental  subjects threw an Oxford Dictionary at me not so long ago  when she asked me how to  spell a word and I replied, as  so many of us do, "Go look it  up in the dictionary."  "How the hell can 1 use a  dictionary if I can't spell?"  she said. It seems that the  phoneticians, while conducting this noble experiment,  neglected to teach any of the  "traditions and conventions"  recognized by the rest of us as  correct spelling. People who  RDPBoohahore  Mm Bonks  See our ad  on the Community  Page 6   were victims of this particular  experiment can't "sound  words out" and recognize  them as they read because the  symbols they were taught to  represent certain sounds don't  correspond to the ones the rest  of us use.  The extent of the damage  inflicted by that program is  sometimes so great that  people looking for the spelling  of a word that begins with a  "hard c" or "k" sound, like  "car", aren't sure which  letter category of the dictionary to begin looking  under. They depend almost  entirely on their visual memory for recognition and spelling of words.  How many times have you  told someone to look up the  spelling of a word in the  dictionary? We all do it all the  time, yet anyone who has been  the victim of this kind of  educational experiment can  tell you that the dictionary is  a tool for people who can spell.  The dictionary lists words  according to their correct  spelling and its purpose is to  define, as precisely as possible, the meanings of words.  The dictionary assumes from  the outset that you know how  to spell. For most of us, the  dictionary can be a reasonably  effective tool, because we can  find a word in it by a fairly  rapid process of elimination.  Often we are confused only  about the order of two vowels  or the doubling of a consonant, but the strict alphabetical ordering of words in a  dictionary can mean quite a bit  of page-flipping to find what  we're looking for.

For  some, the dictionary is a kind  of enchanted forest in which  they are doomed to wander  indefinitely, so they have to  develop other methods and  find other tools to help them  spell.  One of those methods is  an acute visual memory for  written words, but when that  method fails, as it often does  with words that are not in  common usage, a thesaurus  can be a tremendous help.  Instead of arranging words  alphabetically, by spelling, a  thesaurus arranges words  under subject headings in  such a way as to suggest  related words or meanings.  If you know what a word  means, and can recognize it  by sound, you can usually find  it in one of the thesaurus  categories. People who use a  thesaurus regularly become  very adept and spend no more  time flipping pages than the  rest of us do in the dictionary.  Each time you look up the  spelling of a word, in either  a dictionary or a thesaurus,  finding it reinforces your  visual memory of how it is  spelled.  When I was a kid I remember spending lunch hours  sitting in empty classrooms or  under a tree, reading the  Winston School Dictionary. It  can be wonderful, wandering  in the enchanted forest. It can  also be a dark and confusing  place. So the next time a child  or a friend asks you how to  pronounce or spell a word,  don't be too quick to tell them  to "sound it out" or "go look  it up in the dictionary",  unless you're prepared to  duck fast. You never know  how or what they may have  been  taught.   All  for  now.  ��� Fran Bourana Pholo  David Seward and Mirk Fischer of Gibsons righted the Gibson  stone in Pioneer Park.

MARCH 24 - 28  MR  I.G.A.  Book Look  by Murrie Redman  Lauren Bacall By Myself, Ballantine, $3.25  Movie stars are doing well selling their memoirs these days.  Among other things I did not like about this book is the title. Miss  Bacall's life story, told in meticulous detail, documents her  dependency upon her mother, her husband, her children, her  boyfriends and finally, her hopes of finding another man to lean  on.  It is a long, dreary 506 pages of trivia. Bacall is evidently a  diarist who does not put head to pillow without the daily entry.  Unfortunately, as movie stars go. hers is not an interesting life.  Yes, she works hard. Yes, she knows famous people, but her own  life sounds rather dull. It is always dedicated to others, not herself.  The single impressive part of the autobiography is an account of  her personal trials during Bogie's final days dying of cancer. It is  simply and honestly told, without self pity. How she and her  children coped with the tragedy as it occurred in their own home is  worth all the other pages together. The rest of the book is drivel.  Bacall started off as a drama class student and worked hard to  get nowhere on stage. It was a Vogue cover which got her a start in  Hollywood, where she moved from New York. Her co-starring  role with Bogart in "The Big Sleep" made the Bacall-Bogart team  magic to moviegoers. The two actors eventually married, and  became a popular Hollywood couple. Miss Bacall faded into  family rearing while Bogart continued to fascinate audiences with  his tough-guy roles. His death at fifty-seven ended that.  The remainder of Miss Bacall's saga lapses into true story lines.  Plenty ol names arc dropped Frank Sinatra. Adlai Stevenson.  Jason Robards. the Kennedys. No awards for literary style, silver  screen revelations or wit arc forthcoming for By Myself.

With the Regional  Board's extra contribution  there is about $540,000 available and that should buy  the facility we want.  The plans are being sent  back to the architect to cut  costs but with instructions to  retain all the features important to community use.  Harry said the building is to  be a community centre that  the school can use as a gym,  not just a gym that can be  used   by    the    community.  He said there was room  in the community for both the  old community hall and the  new facility. Both are valuable  properties and have their own  uses. But it is important to  support the new one, he said,  because it's not for the school,  it's for the children and us.  In a discussion of local  parks, Harry said the Community Association should  pressure the Regional Board  to get a Regional Parks Plan.  The Ministry of Lands won't  agree to a swap of Crown Land  on Crowe Road for the piece at  the mouth of the Creek  without such a plan.  It was mentioned that Cliff  Gilker Park was recently  cleaned up by juveniles doing  community work as part of  their probation as well as  members of the Katimavik  group. But, said Harry, the  Regional Board should have  money allocated for park  maintenance in its budget.  It's a false economy for this  community not to spend  money on parkland, he said,  and   there   are   grants  and  government moneys available.  "The Roberts Creek Community Association is like a  deck of cards," said newly  elected Dennis Davison when  he took over as chairman at  last Wednesday's annual meeting. "You can shuffle them  any number of times but you  always end up with the same  faces."  Dennis was returning to  the chair after a two year  respite. The rest of the  executive had expressed the  wish to resign this year, but  when nobody else would  accept the nominations, they  reluctantly agreed to serve  another term.  Thus Gail Cromie will  continue as secretary, Bill  Lamb as treasurer, and  Dennis Fitzgerald as vice-  chairman. Retiring chairman  Chuck Barnes will take on the  three-year directorship open  this year and Bill Grose will  finish Dennis Davison's term  as>director.  Chuck Barnes thanked all  who had worked with him and  Harry Almond moved a vote of  thanks to all who had served  the past year. However, the  meeting neglected to give a  vote of thanks to Margaret  Arbuckle who once again had  the thankless job of the nominating committee. With a  limited membership and so  many reluctant to devote time  or energy, she truly deserves  commendation for her efforts.  In old business, before the  election of officers, several  items from previous meetings  were discussed. Harry Almond reported that the  Regional Board is appealing to  the Provincial Government to  raise money for dog licences  and use it for dog control.  On the question of building  permits, Harry said the  Provincial Government gives  the Regional Board $300 for  every new house started in the  The Canadian Cancer Society  NEEDS VOLUNTEERS  for the upcoming April Cancer Campaign  If you have any time to contribute to canvassing, oftice,  work, making phone calls or distributing campaign material  it would be appreciated.

Les Cowley's motion to ask the Regional Board to consider issuing  permits on a brtfak-even basis  was,therefore, defeated.  And it was announced that  the Highways Department is  going to fix the road in front  of the Hall which has proved  the nemesis of several Tuesday night bingo players.  Car Wash.  The Roberts Creek Parents  Auxiliary is holding a car wash  this Saturday, March 28, from  10 'til 3 at the Roberts Creek  Fire Hall. It only costs $3  and the money goes for a good  cause. Come out and support  the Auxiliary and give your  car a treat.  Paperback Donations.  Moira Richter and Gail  Cromie have been busy  weeding out duplicates at  the Roberts Creek Community  Library to make room for new  books. It was suggested  that they hold a book sale  at the shopping mall to get rid  of the "extras" and raise  funds for the library. If you  have any paperbacks you'd  like to donate for resale,  please .drop them off at the  library this week.  Thanks for Labels.  A big thank you to all the  people who brought in their  Campbell's soup labels to the  school. They got enough for  one book, which may not seem  much, but it was cheap at  the price. Maybe next year  they can get a tape recorder!  New Horizons.

The First Skunk  There was a skunk who had lots  of spunk,  And he lived in a hollow log,  Until, oneday, hewasputaway  By a man with a great big dog.  He fought and scratched, but  was soon outmatched -  It was plain to see that day  That you've not much chance if  by circumstance  You get in Ihe big guy's way.  Though he died in pain, it was  not in vain:  He helped his skunky brothers ���  He raised a stink, and that man  will think  Before he tackles others.  He's learned the meek are not  always weak,  They can make HIM suffer too.  And he'll have to act with a bit \  more tact  To do what he wants to do.  Now you and I, like the skunk,  can try,  If we're ever in a spot  Where the big guys may just  win the day,  (Whether it's FAIR OR NOT),  To help our friends, before it  ends,  By showing a little spunk -  If we raise a stink, makethebig  guys think,  We'll be just like thai first brave  skunk!

The regular monthly meeting of the Area B Ratepayers  Association was held on  March 16th with area representative Peggy Connor  present to answer questions  and to bring the board up to  date on the Settlement Plan  situation. At the present time  the plan is going through a  computer system and then it  will be presented to the  public - date for this to be  announced.  A request by the Ratepayers  Association that the SCRD  send notification of its meeting agenda to the Association  prior to the meetings was  turned down by the SCRD>  It was felt that sufficient  notification was given by the  posting of the agenda in the  regional district office on the  week of the meeting.  The matter of hunting in the  Smugglers Cove area was  discussed and the fact that  deer were being shot in such a  public park area had horrified  the residents.  Memberships in the Ratepayers Association are still  moving quite slowly and there  will be some efforts made to  encourage new members. The  importance of this Association  to the area has to be stressed  as it is very often the only  outlet for discussion of matters pertinent to the future of  (he area. At the present  time membership is only open  to home or property owners,  but it is felt that there are  many new residents who are  at present renting and that  they should be entitled to join.  This matter is duly being  discussed and considered.  Welcome back.  Lilian and Dick Birk, former  Redrooffs residents who sold  their home some time ago  have decided that there is no  place like Redrooffs, so they  have bought their place back  again and have now moved in  permanently. They had a spell  in Seattle before returning to  the area. Lilian is the sister  of Hazel Ellis. Welcome home  folks!  An Odessa Cruise: Nita Hoag-  land of Redrooffs has just  returned from a most enjoyable and luxurious cruise  aboard the cruise ship Odessa.  Nita was with a group who  were on a 21-day trip which  started off by flying from  Vancouver to New Orleans  where they boarded ship for a  seven-day cruise on the  Caribbean. They called in at  Grand Cayman Island and  Cozumel. Grand Cayman Island, which is a member of the  British Commonwealth, was  apparently particularly beautiful, while life on board the  Odessa was the epitomy of  luxury. A chartered bus took  the group to Louisiana and  Texas then to San Antinia.  Nita highly recommends this  trip and if anyone would like  to talk to her about it she  would be delighted to pass on  information regarding the  trip.  Firemen have family swim.  The Halfmoon Bay Fire  Department had a most  enjoyable day last Sunday  when they set off for a family  swim at the Gibsons pool.  They then gathered at the fire  hall where they were fed hot  dogs and goodies.  Film night:  Don't forget that Thursday  of this week is the night of  slides of the Lawson's trips.  This will be at the Welcome  Beach Hall and will start at  7:30. Everyone will be made  welcome.  Belly Dancing locally:  A reminder of the day of the  Belly Dance workshop on the  Sunday of March 29th. This is  being given by Doria of Vancouver and should be a fascinating afternoon from one  till four at Elphinstone lunch  room. Even if you have never  tried belly dancing in your life,  you will be welcome to come  along and enjoy this most  fascinating and energetic activity. And if you are not too  interested in participating you  will have a chance to see  Doria performing at Fitzgerald's in the evening of that  day.  Hospital Auxiliary news:  The regular monthly meeting of the Halfmoon Bay Hospital Auxiliary was held on  March 2nd at the Welcome  Beach Hall. The meetings  are held on the first Monday  of each month and new  members are always welcome.  Twenty members were present and the main topic of  discussion was the list of  hospital requirements which is  presented to all auxiliaries  at this time of year. The  members decide on which  items they feel are essential  to the welfare of the patients.  The list was a long one and  each item was described and  its use explained which was  most helpful in deciding  which items should receive  priority.  All items which had to do  with patient care were unanimously passed while several  which did not directly benefit  the patients were rejected.  The first money-raising projects for this year will be the  tea garden at Timber Days,  then will follow the bazaar  in October.  The next meeting will be on  April 6th and there is a gentle  reminder that membership  dues of one dollar are now  due.  Deceased.  The many friends of Percy  Partriquin, recently of Redrooffs Road, are saddened by  his sudden death, March 21.  At the time of writing, funeral  arrangements had not been  finalized.

March 29th 2 p.m.  COUNTRYSIDE  CONCERT  Kum Sing - Pianist  At Elphinstone School Cafeteria  (Bring the children to Room 101)  Riparian rights in  Gibsons discussed  Timber Days  In response to a request  from Bay area resident Frank  Braithwaite, Gibsons council  has agreed to schedule an  open information meeting on  the riparian rights of waterfront property owners in the  Gibsons Harbour area.  Before granting a foreshore  lease for the proposed new  municipal marina, the provincial government's Lands  Branch requires that the  municipality obtains consent  in writing from the owners of  47 properties between the  municipal wharf and the bluff.  Council must also obtain the  consent of anyone who holds  a mortgage against those  properties.  The term riparian rights  refers to the common law  rights of owners of waterfront property. They are,  according to a paper on the  subject by provincial Director  of Lands, W.R. Redel, "rights  and privileges incidental to  the ownership of land fronting  on a body of water".  The specific riparian right  in this case is the right of  access, defined in the 1880  case of the Attorney General  of the Straits Settlement vs.  Wemyss as "trie free right of  day when the sea is in contact  with the land and includes  a private right of access to  the sea across the portion of  foreshore left there by the  receding tide".  According to Redel, "A  riparian owner is entitled to  enjoin any other person from  placing any erection in the  . water opposite his land, even  though the person placing it  there is the owner of the land  covered by the water on which  it is placed."  "In British Columbia,"  Redel states, "where the  riparian right of access is  recognized, the Provincial  Lands Service will not issue  water leases in front of  privately owned lands, except  to the riparian owner or with  the consent of the riparian  owner."  At the Gibsons council  meeting held March 17  Braithwaite expressed the  fear that some residents might  feel they had given their  consent or "signed away"  their riparian rights without  fully understanding them if a  public information meeting is  not held.  Mayor Goddard replied that  while the municipality had  planned  to  approach   each  i owner on an. individual basis,  A meeting todiscuss Sechelt's  upcoming Timber Days is  scheduled for Thursday,  March 26, in the Municipal  Hall in Sechelt. All organizations are requested to send a  rcspresentative.  Individuals who would like  to help are most welcome at  this meeting.  There will be a children's  poster contest this year with a  prize of $25 for the best poster  provided by Shop-Easy.  Lots of entertainment is  being planned to make this a  great weekend for all ages.  The May Queen has been  chosen and the Timber Maids,  age 15-18, are looking for  sponsors.

The 50-50 raffle tickets are  also ready to go on sale.  access is from every part of t she agreed that a public meet-  the frontage, over every part ing would prevent anyone  of the foreshore and is not from feeling "they hadn't  limited to the period of the   asked the right questions".

Coast News, March 24, 1981  Fleming on education  Our Canadian culture  by Frances Fleming  One day, many years ago, a  young teacher was preparing  for St. Patrick's Day, simply  because, it seemed to be the  Ihing to do. The class was  going to make quaint little  potato people, using toothpicks and buttons for eyes.  There were some lovely pigs  wearing shamrocks and top  hats to paste on the windows  and when she was just about  ready to present them to her  class, in walked a young  teacher who was Irish. The  young Irish teacher sat down  with her friend and began to  trace to their bitter source the  concept of potato people and  pigs wearing top hats. They  were, she explained, cruel  racial slurs on the Irish  people. The pigs wearing top  hats were caricatures of the  first Irishmen to attend  Parliament in London. The  potato  people   reflected   the  contempt some English felt for  the Irish and their crude  diet. And here we were, in a  beautiful new country, entertaining innocent children with  the symbols of racial hatred  and oppression!  We do so many things without thinking them through.  Hallowe'en has been made  into a strange event by commercial interests mainly pushing orange and black candies  and masks made in Hong  Kong. It has nothing to do  with All Saints' Day and few-  would recognize it as All  Hallow Evening. It is a  strange mixture of Guy  Fawkes Day, harvest home  festivals, and commercialism.  Try explaining that to a New  Canadian.  Easter is the great Christian  festival celebrating Christ's  rising from the dead.

On Easter  Sunday, eggs were exchanged  in many cultures. Then the  Easter Bunny was introduced  as a happy little clown into  what was a very profound and  deeply spiritual Christian experience. This enabled non-  Christians to participate in the  festivities, welcoming spring  by spending money on new  clothes, flowers, candy, gifts  all urged on by the merchants  of the world. A chocolate  Easter Bunny riding a motorcycle is difficult to explain to a  New Canadian who is inquiring about Easter.  Christmas is another great  Christian festival, celebrating  Christ's birth. Saint Nicholas,  or Santa Claus, in quite recent  times, has ho-ho-hoed his way  into the department stores and  homes of the nation. Even his  reindeer have been joined  by that usurper Rudolph  with the red nose and a  fortune awaits the creative  genius who can hop on the  Santa Claus bandwagon with  yet another lovable character.  Belief in Santa Claus is  pondered by little children,  but let there be no mistake -  the manufacturers and merchants of the world believe in  him. Our civilization loves  Christmas. If it snows, "God's  in His heaven, All's right with  the world."  Many adults express cynicism and scepticism when the  media starts to talk up the  next festival period to attract  advertisers who in turn hope  to attract customers for their  seasonal wares. Few people  lose any sleep over symbolism  and most of us go along with  the fun.  But our schools are very  special places where the  children of many races, many  cultures and various backgrounds must be taught the  most broad-minded and caring attitude to race, religion  and political opinion possible.  The song from "South Pacific" states: "You've got to  be taught to hate...." We  have to teach our children to  accept and love. They will  learn this when they understand that differences are  acceptable and interesting.  Children understand respecting rights of others. They  are essentially fairminded and  will share and co-operate if  encouraged to do so by their  teachers and parents.  There is simply no justification in the public school  system for the kind of St.  Patrick's Day symbolism that  has its roots in the troubled  past of two great countries  which still share a troubled  present. This is Canada - a  new country where all are  welcome to come and be  Canadians. They will have to  accept our strange ways at  Christmas and Easter and  Hallowe'en and get used to  our mindlessness as to their  true meanings. But do not let  us impose on them the hatreds  of the past. The class the  teacher was preparing for'was  composed of 18 Chinese  children, seven Italians and  several mixed blood Canadians. On March 17 that year  they coloured, a map of the  world and talked about the  lands and customs that were  meaningful to those children.  The potato men and the top-  hatted pigs had been banished  forever from Canadian shores-  at least from one classroom  and from one teacher's professional repertoire!  An Old-Time Dance and  Pot Luck Supper has been  planned for April 10th at  Roberts Creek Hall. So far the  response has been good.  Many people would like to  take part in this kind of  non-drinking fun affair.  There   is   one    problem,  however. So far we at Continuing Education have not  found a band to play for the  evening. If there are two or  three old time musicians in the  area who can come to the  rescue, please phone Continuing Education at 885-3512  or Carol at 885-5984.  Pender Auxiliary  The regulat meeting of  Pender Harbour Auxiliary to  St. Mary's Hospital was held  on Wednesday, March 11 with  the President G. Brown in the  chair.  Reports were read. Raffle  tickets on the bearskin rug are  selling  well  and  are still  available.  An array of knitted and  crotcheled garments for the  Hospital Gift Shop were  brought in and yarn distributed.  A group of members worked  on the Easter tray favours.  Tea was served.  Recruiting for  volunteers  Are you having trouble  obtaining or keeping sufficient  volunteers in your organization? Want to know more  about what might motivate  persons to be interested in  your work and how to reach  out to them? Want some  assistance setting priorities  and goals for your volunteer  activity?  "Volunteers: Recruiting for  Today and Planning for Tomorrow" is the title of a one-  day workshop to be held on  Friday, March 27 at Capilano  College. Co-sponsored by the  Volunteer Bureau at Community Services and the  Voluntary Action Resource  Centre (V.A.R.C.) in Vancouver, the workshop is designed to assist leaders of  volunteer groups, Board members, staff and volunteers in  developing concrete, usable  skills in recruiting volunteers,  setting goals and planning for  effective volunteer involvement.  Between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00  p.m. Roy Crowe, Director of  V.A.R.C. will lead participants through a combination  of discussions and skills-building exercises. Crowe has  developed programs with volunteers in the areas of health,  recreation and low income  housing and also has experience as an economist and  in  community   organization.  Cost for the workshop is  $15.00 with subsidies available in special circumstances.  Lunch is not included, so  participants can bring their  own or have an order taken  to the health food store.

CALL NOW  886-7111  lafMaMataMaMtaftaTM  LHfl. The roll of the Federal dice  Maryanne s  by Maryanne West  "Whenever you're in Ottawa,  Maryanne. give me a ring" said  Bob O'Reilly and I would  always find time to wander  over to the Secretary of State's  black tower on Slater street and  spend an hour talking about  the West Coast, what was going  on out there, how we felt about  issues. 1 suppose I was trying to  bring a little of the Pacific  Northwest and the fresh air of  the "Beyond Canada" province  into that 17th floor office  overlooking Ihe roofs of downtown residential Ottawa.  O'Reilly was the only civil  servant 1 met, with the exception of CRTC Commissioners  and staff, who showed any  particular interest in the real  Canada, other than the ever  present Quebec axross the  Ottawa river. After a couple of  days in our capital city it is easy  to forget lhat the rest of the  country exists, and I used to  find myself wondering if B.C.  might not be just a figment of  my imagination.  All of which may have some  bearing on the amazing myopia  of the Federal Government.  One would have expected  that, following the last election's great Liberal wasteland  west of Winnipeg, some effort  would have been made to reassess and up-date relations  with Ihe western provinces, to  make us feel that Ottawa  knows and cares about us and  regards us as first class citizens  of this country.  But obviously nothing  changes in Ottawa that fast.  Nothing and no-one has been  re-programmed and one gets  the feeling that the original  programming was done a  century ago.  Tokenism is still the name of  the game. They appoint Senator Ray Perrault and others to  represent us, try to keep us  , quiet with the offer ofa grant of  our own money and then  continue as if everything now'  should be hunkydory, obeisance having been made in the  right directions.  Leaving aside those two  major examples of Ottawa and  the Liberals forcing their views  on the rest of us, aided and  abetted I'm ashamed to say by  the NDP, there have been a  number of incidents recently  which leave my mind boggled  by the ineptitude of federal  ministers.  First there was Romeo  LeBlanc imposing fishing restrictions on us with apparently  little if any consultation with  the fishermen, the sportsfishing  fraternity, unions, or the  interested departments of Ihe  provincial government.  No-one living along the coast  will deny the urgent necessity of  stringent conservation if our  salmon stocks are to be replenished and the fishing industry  sa\ed. Government regulations  arc undoubtedly necessary but  if those regulations are to be  effective co-operation and  understanding at the waterline  level is essential. That, I would  have thought, was elementary.  Next we have Solicitor  Cieneral Kaplan coming to  town and springing the news  lhat the decision to move the  Provincial RCMP headquarters from Victoria lo Vancouver has been made unilaterally. Then his department  in Ottawa contradicts him and  we wonder not only if anyone  ever  talks or listens to anyone  else but whether the whole  exercise isn't of the make-work  variety. Surely, already in  today's electronic society,  never mind tomorrow's, where  the physical plant is located  becomes of less and less  importance from the point of  view of efficiency. But the  social impact of uprooting  families and the economic-  value of the HQ to Victoria  remains.  Right on the heels of Mr.  Kaplan. Health Minister Begin  throws another spanner into  the smooth working of Federal-Provincial relations by  speculations, which sound  suspiciously like threats, of  possible withdrawal of federal  funding for medi-care.  Oh yes, the media may have  got it wrong, but so help me, by  the time one is appointed to a  cabinet position one should  have learnt the basic rules of  dealing with reporters and the  dangers of thinking aloud.  All of these stupidities pale  into insignificance beside the  gross negligence of a federal  cabinet which gives the go-  ahead to the Comox Corporation to dump 100 million tons  of toxic chemicals into Alice  Arm on Vancouver Island,  with no knowledge of possible  consequences, not even bothering with an environmental  review, no public hearings, just  an ordcr-in-council allowing  the company to ^o ahead.  Apparently no-one in Ottawa  cares how far those toxic  chemicals may be dissipated, or  how much damage they may do  to the food chains upon which  the fisheries depend. For them,  Alice Arm is just a name on a  map which might as well be in  darkest Africa.  It'll take more than a constitution to hold Canada together. Radical changes need to  be made to a blindfolded  federal bureaucracy which  seemingly operates a game of  monopoly relying on the roll of  dice rather than bothering to  find out what the real world is  like.  Community Services  Society meets needs  The Sunshine Coast Community Services Society must  be one of the least well known  organizations on the coast, yet  it is responsible for initiating  and administering many very  valuable services in the area  and has an annual budget of  around $592,240.00.  The Homemaker Service,  co-ordinated by Dudley Do-  hoo, is the largest service  under the umbrella of the  Society. This service has  grown dramatically since its  inception in 1975 and there  are currently 60 homemakers  serving 225 clients. The  services of the homemakers  have made a tremendous difference to the lives of many  elderly, disabled or temporarily incapacitated citizens of the  coast; they are able to continue living independently  in their own homes rather than  having to spend long periods  in hospital or enter a care  facility. This is one of the  services which benefits everyone - the recipients would  rather retain their homes and  independence and the cost to  the taxpayers is far less  than that of the alternatives.  The B.C. government has  realized this and, under the  Long Term Care programme  of the Ministry of Health, pays  for these services for all  eligible clients requiring financial assistance.  The Minibus has been  driving up and down the  peninsula since December  1974. Friendly drivers, Walter  Dennis and Dave Marshall,  pick up people needing to go  to medical or dental appointments, or on hospital visits;  take children to daycare,  transport handicapped children to school and elderly or  disabled people to Adult Day  Care; and make it possible  for extended care and wheelchair patients to go on occasional outings. The Minibus  fills a serios gap in coastal  transportation.  Adult Day Care, under  Louise Hume, offers home-  bound elderly or disabled  people a chance to get out and  socialize with others and  become  involved  in  activity  programmes specially designed for them. The Adult Day  Care Centre operates two and  a half days a week in Gibsons  and once weekly in Sechelt.  Louise also provides other  valuable services such as a  telephone tree and a taped  book library for the visually  impaired.  The Volunteer Bureau,  under Joan Cowderoy, recruits volunteers and refers  them to agencies requiring  voluntary help. Joan also runs  workshops for volunteers and  has organized the Youth  Volunteer programme which  has been involving young  teenagers in voluntary activities in the community.  > A^'hew programme: just  initiated by the Sunshine  Coast Community Services  Society is Meals on Wheels.  This service provides a hot  nutritious meal three days a  week to customers in the Gibsons area. The meals are  cooked in the Kiwanis Intermediate Care Facility and delivered by volunteers, and  have been very well received.  The Society is also responsible for hiring and  supervising child care workers  in the Alternate Schools in  Gibsons and Pender Harbour  and workers under the Ministry of Human Resources  Special Services to Children  programme whenever they are  required.  The Society is also concerned about other needs  in the community and in planning to meet these needs.  There is an on-going planning  committee which, among  other things, offers help to  self-help groups in the community.  The Society is always in  need of help from interested  people to serve on committees  or on the Board, or simply  support the Society's work  by becoming a member. The  Society's Annual General  Meeting is to be held on  Tuesday, March 31, at 7:30  p.m. in Elphinstone School.  Why not come along to learn  more about the Society and  support this very worthwhile  organization?

On the  Seafood Platter  by Chak-Chak  Last week we told you about  the continued ban on butter  clams and how to identify this  species. It makes me wonder  how our native people dealt  with the problems of red tide  and the effect it has on what  was a very important staple  food in their diet.  The Indians of the B.C. coast  consumed large amounts of  clams; butterclams,littlenecks,  cockles and, in the Queen  Charlotte Islands, large quantities of razor clams were eaten.  Clams were dried in the sun and  also smoked in order to  preserve them. If one takes a  trip to the Provincial Museum  in Victoria, one can see strings  of dried horse clams which  were used as a medium of trade;  hence the old expression on this  coast "How many clams you  want for that?"  On  the  shores  of British  Columbia can be found many  species of clams, all edible, but  manyjtp,9Js,nu)ll,,t,q,9onsjder   ;  eating. Fresh water clams can'"  be found in our lakes but most"  are found in the salt" chuck in  quiet bays and inlets on inter-  tidal flats composed of mud.  sand, gravel, or broken shell.  Popular eating varieties  include the little neck, manila,  "butter clam", cockle, horse  clam, and soft-shell clam. The  most tender are the little neck,  the manila, and the soft-shell.  These are most often eaten  from the shell as steamer clams.  Before digging clams one  should check the current bag  limits for clams. Last year,  1980, south of Cape Caution,  no more than 25 "butter  clams", 12 razor clams, 75  clams in aggregate. If there is a  change in regulations this year I  will let you know as soon as I  get the information.  If you have a successful dig  and you are not going to eat  them immediately, don't keep  them in water. Cover them with  a damp sack or moist seaweed,  and keep them cool and damp  with an application of sea water  from time to time. Do not  however, let water accumulate  in the container, it should have  holes punched in the bottom.  Partially open shells mean the  animal is dead and must be  discarded.

They  opened on February 12, 1976, and will be turning over the  operation to Mary and Doug Solomon on March 29,1981.  Both divorced, the sisters Jane and Ann needed an  absorbing occupation and an income. They had never been in  business before, but with the co-operation and help of  fishermen and others, and with plain hard work, they've made a  living and according to their account, "It's been a rewarding  experience. The people were kind, pleasant and helpful, and  we didn't go under."  Jane and Ann have been most active in the endeavours of the  business community of Lower Gibsons. They were involved in  the organization of the Gibsons Harbour Business  Association, and its various working and social activities. They  started the flea market, a popular event in good weather on  Sundays, and were much involved in the Annual Carol Ship,  together with the crew of the Twin J'.  i must say, while they had a struggle at times, they were good  for the community���as they discharged their obligations in full  measure.  The new owners���Mary and Doug sailed the Atlantic from  Capetown, Africa in a 32 foot sloop 'The Sundance Kid',  together with their three children Graham, Donald and Cathy  now aged 13, 14 and 15.  It is an interesting story in itself. They left Capetown in 1977,  arrived here in September 1979. Their voyage took them to  Brazil, the Carribean, New York, up the Hudson to Lake  Ontario, where they wintered. There they built a trailer and  hauled their boat across Canada to Gibsons, using the boat as  'home'.  Husband Doug is presently in the fish brokerage business in  Vancouver, commuting three times a week from here. His  connections naturally lend themselves to a steady source of  supply for fresh fish. He will continue his operations as a fish  broker, while Mary runs the retail fish market.  Mary plans to expand the hours of opening to include  Sundays, and remaining open weekdays to 7 pm to  accommodate the people coming home on the 6 o'clock ferry.  She will take phone orders for take-out fish and chips, or any  other specialties that may be developed according to popular  demand. The addition of a second deep fryer indicates more  emphasis will be turned to take-out cooked fish.  We have enjoyed an excellent working relationship with  Ann and Jane. We wish them all the best, and look forward to a  new and happy relationship with Mary and Doug Solomon.  if  Cut out Ihis Coupon  'ot  fc<  >*  Attach to your Sales Slip \ \^0 J  Return to Ken's Lucky Dollar ' <5v       j  DRAW TO BE MADE SUNDAY AT 5 p.m.  NAME TEL NO.

Labour troubles on the  municipal course at Gleneagles has prevented the  return match as scheduled.  This visit will be arranged  when settlement of the present labour dispute has been  achieved.  Next Sunday, March 29th  the ever-popular mixed foursome scramble will be played.  Some 120 players have entered this event. This huge  entry of members will tax the  capacity of the course. A  shotgun start will be used to  get all the foursomes under  way. Remember this is a fun  day for everyone, so just  relax and enjoy a pleasant  day.

Due to the large number of  golfers that are taking advantage of our great weather,  our pro manager has opened  the pro shop to accommodate  the many green fee and  regular golfers that have been  enjoying the course. Green  fees, cart and club rentals  etc. are now available at this  pro shop. All green fee and  regular members are requested to sign the register in  the pro shop.  Soaring costs of the proposed and approved projects,  that were scheduled for completion this year, have caused  the Board of Directors to take  a second look at the ability  of the club to achieve the  completion of all work as  planned.

The opening ceremonies were  most impressive with the  Sechelt Legion Pipers preceding the Gibsons Royal  Canadian Legion colour party  carrying our two countries'  flags, then the executive  members of the Washington  State Curling Association,  Pacific Curling Association  and the participating curlers.  Opening and welcoming  messages were extended  by John MacLean, president  of P.C.C.A., Chuck Lundgren,  president of W.S.C.A., Lorraine Goddard, Gibsons May-  PENINSULA  MARKET  885-9721    Davis Bay, B.C.  tide tables  or and Larry Boyd, president  of   Gibsons   Winter   Cub.  While the men were busy  curling, the ladies were taken  on a very enjoyable bus tour to  the Jolly Roger Inn for luncheon - returning to the Club  around 2 p.m. Everyone reported having had a fabulous  time and hoped to return to  our fair coast.  A dinner and dance at the  Legion completed the evening  with our tireless curlers  turning to dancing.

Coast News, March 24, 1981  In  Christ's  service  A space  a Model  trip in  -T Ford  by Rev. George Inglis  It ii an incongruous fact that  the Christian church it frequently guilty of trying to take  a space trip in a Model-T Ford.  This may sound like a harsh  simile, but think of it!  How frequently do we burden down this glorious, soaring  truth which we claim to  espouse, by attempting to  articulate it with stiff and  stilted language that is often as  archaic as a Model-T in the  space age?  How often is the awesome  magnificence of the truth  girded about with the chains of  creeds, doctrines, rituals, ceremonies and denominational  squabbles, like Marley's ghost  in Dickens' "Christmas Carol"  with his confining links of  ledgers, filing cabinets, and  chains he forged in life?  How often do we try to  ; explain the mighty works and  ��� wonders of our Incarnate God,  . Jesus of Nazareth, in his eartly  mission, by scientific explanations?  Did not his earthly mission  ' start out with a story about  angels, contain stories of  telepathic communications  with evil spirits, relate an  interview between Jesus,  Moses and Elijah (both dead  for centuries), and conclude  with the account of Jesus'  resurrection from the dead, his  ability to walk through closed  doors, appear suddenly on a  road and disappear at will, and  finally ascend into heaven?  In view of these startling,  supernatural beliefs, how then  can we try to explain by  natural, rational explanations  such things as raising the dead,  healing the sick, casting out  demons, feeding a multitude  with five small loaves and two  fishes, or walking on the water?  Or, worse still, do we not try  to explain these mysterious  events that shook the Gentile  world out of its pagan beliefs  into life eternal, by overlaying  them with credal, doctrinal and  liturgical language, suggesting  that all was not exactly as  reported?  Are we not liable to be found  guilty of trying to rationalize  events of supernatural origin  into physical limitations?  Are we not confusing physical happenings with physics?  Are we not guilty, in the  process, of trying to understand a space age trip with a  Model-T mentality?  Is the gospel of Jesus Christ  not essentially joyous and  simple enough to be understood by a child?  Is not the entire gospel  summed up in John 3:16: "For  God so loved the work) that he  gave his only Son, that whoever  believes in him should not  perish but have eternal life"?  What voice is it that tells the  church to encumber this joyous  message of freedom with an  overbearing burden of apologetic language and cloudy  functions which mask its stark  simplicity?  Might it not be a Model-T  mentality, a belief that everything must be capable of being  fixed with a pair of pliers and a  piece of baling wire in order to  be completely trustworthy?  Are we afraid to face up to  the fact that our genius for  rational explanation might  have met its master in the  soaring truths and majestic  revelations that are recorded in  the history of God's relationship with man?  Are we so afraid to acknowledge fully our belief that one of  such humble birth as our Lord  Jesus Christ was still able to be  on intimate terms with supernatural forces, whose length  and breadth and width and  height we cannot even envision,  let alone explain?  Is it somehow humiliating  for the church to be right "up  front" and accept with humble  joy the fact that this glorious  message with which it has been  entrusted, does not need to be  explained, defended, rationalized - only proclaimed?

Province of British Columbia  MINISTRY OF FORESTS  It seems that today's young  and inquisitive breed have  evidenced disenchantment with  the Establishment, and with all  that it entails by way of  authority, tradition, and custom - based largely on the  premise that all was hypocrisy,  a cover-up for the truth.  In this generation, however,  the same rebellious and iconoclastic spirit exists, but has  been tempered by a realization  that new is not necessarily true,  and that some old folks are not  "out of it," and have managed  to grasp a few inklings of truth.  It may very well be a time ofa  20th-century Renaissance,  when great new truths are  going to break into history,  aiding man's earth-bound spirit  to "slip the surly bounds of  earth," and seek his truths in  realms which can only be  grasped by the tools of faith,  which is the "assurance of  things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen."  If this be true, then it may  very well be that the jealous  hold which the church has had,  traditionally, on those matters  which occur beyond the realm  of its earthly understanding,  will have to be shared more  freely.  It would therefore behoove  the church to begin to set its  communications house in order, and to approach the  matters of the supernatural  fearlessly and honestly, expressing them in simple and  unequivocal language.  And, what is more important, the church must believe  them, tool  Soccer clinic  This clinic is happening  at Hackett Park on Saturdays  starting on April 4th and  running   for   eight   weeks.

John Clayton from Trail  Bay Sports brought an impressive selection of this  season's equipment, which  included brand new lures and  lines especially designed to  catch the wary, sophisticated  fish of 1981; different types of  rod-holders and reels for  mooching and trawling, super-  strong hooks and even a  battery-operated hook-sharpener. We were treated to a  sample of emergency rations  (which, upon analysis, turned  out to be raisins, smarties  and nuts) and were all given a  booklet full of handy hints  such as how to tie fish knots,  how to get the most out of  your line, etc.  Then George Bissett, The  Rodfather, gave an interesting  talk on the different kinds of  rods needed for coastal  fishing. He brought a variety  of his own rods. We were most  impressed by his wealth of  knowledge regarding inland  and salt water fishing. Mr.  Bissett promises a 10% discount to any Wildlife Club  member who purchases his  equipment.  We thank these gentlemen  for their fine presentations.  The evening closed with  three short films, one about  speckled trout and two about  salmon.  Wildlife Cub members are  reminded that their member  ships are due to be renewed.  Individual memberships cost  $10.00 and families are  $15.00. Please send your  money to Secretary-Treasurer  Murray Mark, RRM Madeira  Park, or bring it to our next  month's meeting.

I  would have no hesitation in  saying that it is to have an  enquiring mind. Without that  priceless gift one would miss  main ol the essential things  thai make life worth living and  a is unfortunate, in my opinion, that so many people go  through their brief period on  this earth with unseeing eyes  and minds closed to the  marvellous and beautiful  things going on around them.  I he) could almost be described  as "zombies" inasmuch as they  grope around in a trance-like  state and fail to either perceive  or appreciate the multitudinous qualities of the human  experience.  II is apparent that mystery  and imagination are as vital as  reason for man in his hunt for  truth and a meaning to life. As  Albert Einstein wrote in 1930,  "The most beautiful thing we  can experience is the mysterious; it is the source of all  true art and science. He to  whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to  wonder and stand rapt in awe,  is as good as dead; his eyes are  closed." Having unburdened  myself with that fragment of  philosphy I can now return,  hopefully, to the years 1933-37.  After closing down the cabin  in the early spring of 19331 had  one more summer out at Lake  Dcchene at my old vocation of  running a hot dog stand for the  Central Dairy and it was more  or less a repeat performance of  the previous year. If anything, I  was busier than ever looking  after the needs of the summer  vacationers who were arriving  in increasing numbers.  I had a nasty experience mid  way through the season when I  almost lost my life. I was out on  the lake late one evening "long  lining" for channel catfish.  Weighing up to 7 or 8 lbs. they  made excellent material for fish  and chips, even better thancod.  On this particular evening I had  stayed out long after dark when  a sudden storm came up and in  no time at all the usually placid  waters were a boiling cauldron.  What with the terrific rolls of  thunder and the blinding stabs  of lightning I must have  become confused in my sense of  direction and was in real  trouble when the leaky punt I  was in (one could not describe  it as a boat) capsized and sunk.  There was nothing for it but  swim and swim I did. I have no  idea how long I was actually in  the water but when I emerged,  instead of staggering ashore on  or near Tommy Gamble's  beach. I was down at Britannia  Pier a good I '/S miles away.  Having survived all that, the  rest of the season passed  uneventfully enough and, come  fall. I returned to Glengarry for  another winter in my log cabin.  Oh yes. I made my annual  pilgrimage not to Mecca but to  Hull. Quebec and survived that  too!  Times were still extremely  hard as the Depression was still  on and money scarce, so that  winter, besides working the  odd day for the local farmers if  and when they needed assistance, at such jobs as tree  falling or butchering. I tried to  augment my income by trapping. 1 knew an old chap who  lived, also in a log cabin, about  three miles from mine and he  showed me the rudiments of  running a trap line. To be  honest, apart from muskrats  when the streams and creeks  broke up in the spring, there  was very little animal life in that  area of Ontario. The land had  been settled for too long a  period and the wildlife and  game had either departed or  been killed off. That winter all I  caught were several raccoons  and one red fox and to this day  I have been haunted by remorse  for ever having had anything to  do with the gruesome business.  I received $2 each for the  raccoon skins and $5 for the red  fox but my heart was not in it. I  would much rather have worked at the going rate of SI per  day but I had to live and the  farmers were almost as poor as  1 and, not having any money to  spare, seldom called for help  unless they really had to.  After a second winter in  isolation with long lonely  nights spent reading or dozing  by the fire, I was quite relieved  when spring finally arrived and  it  was  time  to  resume the  eternal quest for work. Anything that would enable me not  only to live through the spring  and summer months, but  endeavour to put aside a little  money to see me through  another winter.  That spring of 1934 1 went  back to Lake Dechene but it  was only for a short period. We  experienced a tragedy out there  when one of my friends. Bill  Young, who was a steady  worker on the Gamble farm,  died from a fall off a load of hay  which was being unloaded at  the barn. The trip-rope broke  and he plunged to his death,  hitting his head on a huge slab  of rock that served as a step to  the milk house.  It had nothing to do with the  accident, but I had never had  much use for the manager of  the farm, a Mr. M., and got  into a heated altercation with  him a few days later and, in  spite of all the inducements to  stay on that Mr. Gamble  offered, I quit. Needless to  relate, it being too early to  return to Dunvegan, I blew  most of my stake in Hull. 1 had  very little left when 1 caught a  fast freight to Montreal, but  that is another story and will  have to wait.  Apropos to my preamble, I  would like to leave you with  one thought. Out here on the  coast of B.C. we are living out  our lives in what is possibly one  of the most beautiful spots on  earth.

Stray dogs dangerous  Editor:  May I take this opportunity  to publicly express my appreciation to the Department  of Highways for taking steps  to improve the section of  Highway 101 between Granthams and Gibsons. This piece  of roadway, one of the most  often travelled roads on the  coast has over the years  been noted as a disgrace to  the entire highways system.  With its lack of shoulders  and non-existent street lighting this section is potentially  dangerous for anybody travelling thereon (within one  month recently two separate  freight transporters have  crashed in the ditch). As for  the pedestrian, he takes his  life in his hands.  I would like, at this time, to  enquire of the Regional Board  if it is their intention to  provide some street lighting  along this stretch. As the  existing power poles will have  to be replaced in the course  of present improvements it  seems reasonable from a point  of view of economics as well  as safety to do some upgrading of lighting facilities.  I invite the authorities  responsible to publicly respond to my request for  information on this subject  (preferably in the next issue  of your newspaper). Should  the answer be "no" (i.e. no  provision for lighting) I  encourage every person who  travels this piece of roadway  to write,  phone or in any  Editor:  Recently a motorcycle rider  on Marine Drive in Gibsons  swerved to avoid hitting a dog  on the road. The dog went  home to its owner alive and  well. The man is in intensive  care in grave condition after  crashing into a truck.  conceivable manner let the  Regional Board know the  urgency of making such  improvements at this time.  Thank you.  Bruce M. Wilson  Pedestrian Resident of  Granthams  Since it is illegal to allow  dogs to run loose, the dog's  owner Is responsible for a  man's life hanging in the  balance and the thousands of  dollars of damage to the  vehicles.  The rest of us who do not  control our animals are also a  party to it. Dogs are frequently seen running loose all over  Gibsons and cars often stop or  swerve to avoid them. It is  high time this abuse was  corrected.  If animal owners will keep  their animals tied up or under  control a similar tragedy  need not occur. At the same  time "Animal Control" should  increase their patrols and  institute fines stiff enough to  get the attention of offenders.  We can all help by promptly  reporting loose animals to  Animal Control. The man so  cruelly injured is a dear  friend of ours. He might have  been someone dear to you.  E. Griffith,  Gibsons  Cartoon called childish  Editor:  1 find your "Codfish Cove"  cartoon in the current edition  childish and in bad taste.  The price of a lot, a house, a  bar of gold, or a hamburger, is  what you can get for it. There is  no ogre dictating the price of  lots, or of anything else. The  market place is the final arbiter,  and neither you, Mr. Editor,  nor the befuddled Mr. Blick, or  anybody else, of any political  persuasion, would sell a lot for  a penny less than the most he  could get for it.  This sort of journalism  attempts to divide people into  good guys and bad guys along  ideological lines.

ANNOUNCING BRITISH COLUMBIA'S  NEW EMPLOYMENT STAND\RDS ACT.  HOW THE NEW LAW  PROTECTS YOU,  THE EMPLOYEE  British Columbia has a new law that protects  the rights of employees better than ever  before. The EmploymentStandards Act  (1981) covers virtually every aspect of employment, and sets out clearly the responsibilities of employers.  The following is an outline of the major areas  affected by the law. Further information, and  leaflets, may be obtained at any provincial  Ministry of Labour office.  Wage protection and  new minimum wage  As of December 1, 1980 the minimum wage in  British Columbia was increased to $3.65 an  hour for persons 18 years and over, and to  $3.00 an hour for persons under 18.  The new Act stipulates when employers must  pay wages, which deductions are allowable,  which details must appear on pay  statements, and what employees' rights are  on termination of employment.  Hours of work and overtime  Most employees (with certain exceptions) are  entitled to a half-hour eating period every  five hours, and to 32 consecutive hours off  each week. There are also new regulations  regarding shifts.  Overtime pay at l'/t times the regular rate  must be paid for the first three hours worked  beyond the normal eight-hour day, and  double time after that.  Annual vacations and  general holidays  Employees are entitled to two weeks paid  vacation after each year worked, and three  weeks after five consecutive years of work.  Most people who work on any of the nine  general holidays must be paid overtime, and  must also receive another day off later.  Maternity leave  Maternity leave is a right in this province and  employees must be reinstated in their job, or  a comparable one, on their return.  Up to 18 weeks leave, without pay, may be  taken. During the absence, all benefit plans  must be continued, provided the employee  pays her normal share.  A leaflet is available dealing with Maternity  Leave.  Complaints  Employees who have a complaint or an  enquiry should contact the nearest office of  the Employment Standards Branch, Ministry  of Labour. The Branch will provide further  information and assist employees in  resolving their problems.  Employee protection  Employers are prohibited from terminating,  suspending or disciplining any employee  who files a complaint under the Employment  Standards Act.  Employees are also protected under the Act  from employers persuading them to accept  work by false representation or misleading  advertising.  For further information or leaflets pertaining  to the Employment Standards Act, contact  any of the provincial Ministry of Labour  offices listed below, or return the coupon.  Farm and Domestic work  There is now a minimum daily wage of $29.20  for live-in domestics and most agricultural  employees (except piece-workers).  Farm labour contractors are required to be  licensed, must pay employees each week  and, in addition, all wage rates must be  displayed at the work-site.  A leaflet is available dealing with Farm and  Domestic Work.  Termination of employment  Employers are required to give minimum  periods of written notice when laying off an  employee. These are: two weeks for  employees who have worked at least six  consecutive months; and three weeks, after  three years, increasing by one week per year  of employment to a maximum of eight weeks.  There are a number of circumstances in  which written notice is not required.  A leaflet is available dealing with Termination  of Employment.

Jack Heinrich, Minister April Fool's Day Run  Bigger & better than ever  by Fran Berger  Well, the time has come for  all that panting and training  and flogging the body to pay  off. The chance for glory is just  around the corner! The Boston  Marathon may still be out of  reach, but who's to say you  can't be a hero and complete  the 4th Annual April Fool's  Day Run from Gibsons to  Sechelt!  The run this year will not be  spear-headed by the little old  lady with blue hair and tennis  shoes and the debauched rugby  player, but if the number of  joggers one regularly sees along  the roadsides is any indication,  there should definitely be a full  field of competitors vying for  the coveted Coast News Cup.  And thanks to the generosity of  representatives from Nike and  Adidas, many more runners  will receive laurels for their  efforts this year. The overall  winner will take home a Nike  Club Bag along with his (or  her) trophy, the runner-up will  have a new pair of Adidas TRX  Trainers to help him run even  faster in next year's race, and  the third person across tne  finish line will also carry off a  Nike Club Bag. The first  runners in each of the following  categories will add a Nike T-  shirt to their wardrobe: Men's  Masters (40 & over); Ladies (19  - 34); ladies' Masters (34 &  over); 14 & Under. And every  person who completes such a  commendable feat of endurance and determination in no  matter how much time will  receive a memento of the race.  New This Year!  Rieta Hanson and the Sunshine Coast Fitness Group will  have aid stations all along the  course doling gut water, oranges and encouragement, (there  will also be vehicles cruising the  road to rescue any fallen) and if  you're a beginning runner and  aren't in shape to make the 13  mile trek, why not sign up for  the Mini-Run instead, and give  yourself the satisfaction of  completing a five-mile run. For  added incentive there will be  prizes of Nike T-shirts to the  first Man (15- 39), first Lady  (15-39), first 14& Under, First  Men's Master (40 & over),'and  first Ladies' Master (34 &  over).  Entrants for both runs are  requested ��tq pre-register by  completing the form at the  bottom of the April Fool's Day  Run ad on-page 7, and returning it by 5:00 pm. Saturday, March 28th to either the  Coast News office or one of the  Trail Bay Sports stores. Pre-  registered runners should be at  Elphinstone School at 9:00am.  on the morning of the race, and  anyone not pre-registered  should be there at 8:30 am.  Last year's winner, Adrian  Belshaw, completed the 13 mile  run in one hour, 27 minutes and  12  seconds,  with  Constable  Leith Skinner hot on his heels,  so anyone wanting to see the  action at the finish line at the  Cenotaph in Sechelt should be  there well before 11:00 am. to  be sure not to miss it. The  Trophy and prizes will be  awarded at 12 noon, or as soon  after that as the last runner  comes in.  If you happen to be driving  by on March 29th and see the  runners, shout some cheers and  encouragement their way. That  might be just the boost they  need to get them up the Davis  Bay hill and on to the exhilaration of the finish line!  Kum-Sing in concert  Countryside Concerts brings  back an old friend of the Coast  Mr. Lee Kum-Sing, who will  play a programme of Bach-  Busaire and Schumann on  Sunday March 29, at 2 p.m.  The brilliant pianist, Lee  Kum-Sing, has performed to  the acclaim of audiences and  critics in the major cities of four  continents.

Students of Mr. Lee has won  awards at national music  competitions in Canada every  year since 1974.  Tickets for this concert may  be obtained at the door: Adults  $5, students and OAP $2.50.

Woodcarving exhibit  well worthwhile  Coast News, March 24, 1981  15  - John Moore Pholo  - John Moore Photo  Among the wide variety of woodcraft on display at the Arts Centre were Eddie Jeffries' Masks' and  Burkhard Pai's 'Esther's Cradle'.  Too many  workers  are being taken  for a ride.  It's happening (ar too often. Somebody forgets.  Somebody doesn t pay attention. Somebody  knows his job so well he could "do it blindfolded.".  We see the results.  Job-related injuries and deaths continue  to occur at a depressing rate.  And there's one person who can  do a lot to change thai  You.  If you see a job hazard, remove it or report it.  If you should wear protective equipment, wear  it If you're not sure how to do something  safely, ask. It's your life.  Your health,  s up lo you  to prolecl  yourself  1C\UJ0RKERS  COfTlPENSATION  by Joan Huestis Foatet  Many have considered the  Sunshine Coast as the last  refuge of the artisan and the  woodworking exhibit currently  on show at the sunshine Coast  Arts Centre reinforces that  view.  Charles Murray has become  known over the years as a fine  watercolourist but he has kept  to himself a rare and witty  talent for wood 'carving.  With fine detail and humour  he captures people seep every  day and they are clearly  recognizable. His eye for  posture and attitude is so good  that many are familiar from  ���the back or side view. Burnel  Gordon is the star of Murray's  little slice of Sechelt along  with the Selma Park Walker.  These are not stereotyped .or  deja-vu, they are perfectly  delightful and highly original.  In a similar vein is a carved  and painted logger complete  with saw carved by Eddie  Jeffries   from    red    cedar.  More pragmatic is the  charming "Esther's cradle,"  by Burkhard Pai. Of cherry  and birch the cradle would  provide a cozy nest for a rosy  newcomer.  Ted Peters presents us with  a marvellously understated  vase and canister that would  be a joy in any kitchen. His  designs are simple, clear and  beautiful. Two pale nutmeg  figures by Linda Fox are solid,  warm and nicely handled.  A driftwood totem by Wanda  Best is spectacular and would  be just gorgeous among  flowers. Gordon McCourt's  huge burl salad bowls just  scream for lavish greens or  wildly extravagant fruit.  For the abstract we have  Godfrey Stephen's "work in  progress", a large and attractive yellow cedar carving  and  there  are  many   more  fascinating works by talented  local carvers.  All in all, this is a charming  uncluttered exhibit and one is  inclined to wish that these  clever artisans could devote  themselves full time to their  craft. As always this show is  well worth a trip to Sechelt to  view and enjoy.  Tired of sky-high heat bills?

A skilled  tradesman could easily match a Doctor's take-home pay by working similar  hours.  3) If you have to visit the hospital at night as an emergency, vour doctor's take-  home pay for the call-back is less than that of the X-Ray or Laboratory Technician.  4) It costs each doctor about $45,000 a year to run his or her office.  5) Doctors must provide their own vacation pay, sickness benefits and pension  funds (and still pay office expenses while away on vacation).  Balance Billing will only be necessary as long as the Government refuses to  negotiate a reasonable settlement (with respect to the above facts).  An information sheet on Balance Billing is available in your Doctor's office.

Phone 748-0381 #12  School taxes  Homeowners to suffer  by Dave Barrett  All indications are that the  continuing provincial cabinet  shell game of shifting more  school costs onto local government will hurt homeowners  even more than usual this year.  That's because the enormous  increase in assessments magnifies the damage done by the  increasingly unfair school  financing formula. Since 1975  the provincial treasury's share  of total school costs has  dropped from approximately  hall to one-third, In some  school districts the decline has  been even more steep.  The cabinet had plenty of  warning of the consequences of  its manoeuvres but has deliberately gone ahead with  gouging ratepayers even at the  risk of driving some out of their  homes. After tiny reductions in  residential assessment calculations were announced by the  finance minister for 1981. B.C".  School Trustees Assocation  Gary Begin publicly protested  that "indications arc that the  uncontrolled increase in property values will more than  offset these reductions."  The current education minister's response has been the  usual bafflegab of blaming  school districts for higher  levies. This is an utterly cynical  posture. Of courcc the school  tax levies on homeowners will  increase when the government  consciously increases the load  WANTED - WATERFRONT LOT  Secluded, sunny - by couple for  own use.

For example, the Vancouver  Province has calculated that  the average school budget  increase in the lower mainland's nine school districts has  risen 16% this year. But,  because of the provincial  cabinet's policies, the rale-  payers' share, after deducting  homeowner grants, will skyrocket no less than 140'';!  As the newspaper points out.  over the past several years ihe  shifty work of the cabinet has  transferred literally hundreds  of millions of additional dollars  onto the hacks of properly  owners.  Why were those lax increases  cabinet? To pay for the enormous losses to Ihe public purse  resulting from the infamous  squandering of the money-  making public assets which  were handed over by Premier  Bennett's BCRIC scheme.  And more hundreds of  millions will be siphoned out of  homeowners pockets in coming  years to pay lor billion-dollar  subsidies lor the coal exports,  professional sports stadium  and other monuments.  The shell game won't stop  until ratepayers realize they are  being conned into the poor-  house not by lite school trustees  Ihey have elected to educate  our children but by the monument   mania   of  the  present  manipulated   by  the   present   government.

Birds of the south  Coast Naturalists  Coast News, March 24,1981  by Tony Greenfield  Katie and I made a little  trip this winter. The ostensible  reason for this jaunt was to  visit Katie's family for Christmas in Wisconsin, but the real  reason was to drive from B.C.  to Wisconsin, returning to  B.C. via Texas, Arizona and  California, birding all the way  for 10,000 miles!  We had a wonderful time  driving through the myriad  landscapes of the U.S.A.,  the plateaux of East Oregon,  foggy Utah, the endless  Kansas plains, frozen Wisconsin, sunny Oklahoma, the  arid wastes of West Texas,  the beautiful saguaro deserts  of Arizona, the freeways of  Los Angeles and the pounding  California surf. Every day we  would be in a new area,  watching for the birds of that  particular region.  After the New Year, Katie  and I left frigid Wisconsin  and drove as fast as we could  due south to Texas and the  balmy Gulf of Mexico. In two  days we went from midwinter to summer, from  Snow Buntings (an Arctic  bird) to Jacanaa (an equatorial  bird)! I'd like to confine my  story to our four days in  the lower Rio Grande Valley  of Texas. ,  The lower Rio Grande  Valley is one of the areas in  North America that every avid  birder eventually has to visit,  because of its unique avifauna  based on its extreme southern  location adjacent to Mexico.  Some of the common birds  here can be seen nowhere else  in North America; and to see  them, one immediately recognizes the tropical element -  the gaudy colours ofthe Green  Jay, Altamlra Oriole, Kb-  kadee Flycatcher and the plain  brown Chachalaca. The lower  Rio Grande is blessed with  a number of famous wildlife  refuges and parks where one  can see these birds: the Santa  Ana Refuge, Bentsen Rio  Grande State Park, Falcon  Dam State Park and the Santa  Margarita Ranch - all places  famous in ornithological lore.  Katie and I had both  been in this area before, so we  passed on visiting Santa Ana  and Laguna Atascosa this  time, in favour of spending  more time at Bentsen. We  drove into the park at nearly  dusk on January 11th and  immediately found a couple  from Houston looking at a  Screech Owl sitting in a hole in  a tree in a classic owl pose.  We were off to a promising  start!  Just before turning in that  I MISC.

With the  help of a flashlight and after  a short scramble through the  dark jungle, I managed to  locate the rare Farraginous  Owl. I had my flashlight full  on him from a range of 30  feet for about two minutes.  During this time, he danced  up and down, gave me his  wide-eyed stare and generally  tried to psyche me right out  of there. There's nothing quite  like the thrill of "owling",  especially when you And one  of the rarer species.  The following morning we  awoke to a steady rain, but  there were already two other  birders wandering around the  campsite looking at everything  with feathers. We soon made  contact with them, as is  normal with birders. The news  was eicitingl One of the two  was Granville Smith of Green  Valley, Arizona, one of the  leading listers of North American birds. The reason he was  wandering around in the rain  at Bentsen State Park that  morning was that a flock of  Clay-CohMued Thrashea had  been reported there in the last  few days. Granville has seen  713 species of birds in North  America and the Clay-Coloured Thrash was supposed  to be #714.  Meanwhile, Katie and I had  heard about two other rare  birds that had been recently  seen in the Bentsen area. On  19  the second afternoon we  located an immature Jacana in  a flooded field, along with  many other birds. We got  soaking wet and cold finding  this one - but well worth itl  The following morning, to cap  a wildly successful stay, we  found a pair of Hook-Billed  Kites right in the park.  One of the nights at Bentsen  we went owling with a tape  recorder and flashlight.  Screech Owls were everywhere - we saw at least (en.  However, just as we were  about to retire, we were  apprehended by the Border '  Patrol, who thought we were  acting very suspiciously so  close to the Mexican border.  And I guess we were - weird  birdwatchers I  After leaving Bentsen, we  drove west a short distance to  the Santa Margarita Ranch  where we paid the Senora two  dollars to walk alongside the  not very impressive Rio  Grande and successfully located both the Ringed and  Green Kingfishers. Another  short drive and we reached  Falcon Dam where we hoped  to see a Black-Headed Oriok  and the rare Brown Jay.  The oriole we found, but the  jay will require a further trip  This visit to the Rio Grande  Valley proved to be the  quintessential birding trip.  For an avid birder, what could  be more fulfilling than finding  rare birds in an exotic location  and sharing your successes  with people of like mind?  I CONTRACTING I  KRAMAK CONSTRUCTION CO.

Honourable mention must be made of Dawna Read of  Sechelt who didn't win but who wrote a really nice letter.  Continued from pastes*..  meeting council received a written report from Municipal Clerk  Jack Copland stating that he had presented Mr. Blain's letter and  associated minutes to Deputy Minister of Municipal Affairs John  Taylor on Thursday March 12.  Copland's report concludes: "Mr. Taylor read the letter and  associated minutes concluding with the statement that he would  not comment as it was, in his opinion, a legal question. If Council  wishes to pursue the question we can forward the documentation  to MacKenzie-Lidstone for legal opinion.  Alderman Trainor moved that the documents be forwarded to  the municipality's solicitors for a legal opinion on the question.  "A question about the proceedings of this council has been  raised." Trainor said, "Let's clear the air."  Mayor Goddard replied that while she was aware that as  chairman she was not supposed to participate in the debate, she  felt obliged to state that she did not feel the municipality should be  spending money on legal fees in order to "prove her right." She  suggested lhat if Mr. Blain wished to challenge the ruling further,  he should do so at his own expense.  Goddard lays law down  Mayor  Lorraine  Goddard    not be construed as an invi-  laid down the law under which    tation to "cross-examine" or  Gibsons council will in future    "publicly humiliate" members  receive   petitions   and   dele-    of council,  gations from members of the  public at last Tuesday's regular  council meeting.  Again faced with a full public  gallery, six of whom were on  the agenda to address council,  Mayor Goddard pointed out  that the "Petitions and Delegations" section of the council  agenda is not governed by the  Municipal Act, but affords  council the opportunity to  receive input directly from the  public.  The opportunity to address  council, Goddard said, should  The vote on Alderman Trainor's motion was tied, with  Alderman Edney supporting the motion and Alderman Strom  and Labonte opposed. The Mayor declared the motion defeated  for want of a majority.  Mr. Blain, however, was on the agenda for Tuesday night's  meeting on another topic, objecting to council's assurance of  support for a foreshore lease application by Shelter  Developments (Tru-Oak Equity) who are currently in the final  planning stages of a forty-four unit condominium project across  from the firehall and facing Gibsons Harbour. Blain suggested  that any pre-approval of such a lease application would be  premature.  "I consider it most improper for the applicant to approach the  Village Council, then having been assured of their approval, going  to the Lands Branch who must then go back to the Council for  approval," Blain states in his letter. Blain also states that he is  "adamantly opposed to the granting of foreshore leases in front of  residential property, multiple or otherwise as the foreshore is  public property and should not be alienated to provide extra  income to developers." The full text of Mr. Blain's letter appears  in this week's Coast News.  At the Planning Committee meeting held Monday March 16.  the Planner indicated that two letters had been received, objecting  to the issuance of any further foreshore leases within the harbour.

However among these thousands of transations, some problems or misunderstandings can  arise. If so, there are steps you can take:  1. Try to clear up Ihe misanderstanding by first discussing it with the licensee with whom you've been  dealing.  2. If the matter is nol resolved, then discuss Ihe complaint with the manager or agent in charge of Ihe real  estate office. The vast majority of "complaints" are usually settled by these two means.  IF SATISFACTION IS STILL NOT FORTH COMING:  3. Go lo the local Real Estate Board. It will attempt to resolve your problem without the necessity ol legal  expense lo you. (If there is a possibility lhat Ihe Real Estate Act has been contravened. Ihe Board will  refer your complaint to the Real Estate Council.)  4.Enquire about the problem by contacting the offices of the Real Estate Council of B.C.  COMPLAINTS TO THE  REAL ESTATE COUNCIL  The Council is responsible (or inquiring into the conduct of real estate licensees. The Regulations under  the Real Estate Act require that every complaint be in writing and verified by statutory declaration. (This is  a sworn statement of facts made before and witnessed by, a lawyer, Notary Public or a Commissioner for  Oaths, for which there is a nominal fee charged.) Such a written complain forms the basis of an inquiry by  If the inquiry produces no evidence of wrongdoing by a real estate licensee, the Council will so advise the  parties and at the same time forward a copy of the complete file to the Superintendent of Insurance. If the  Superintendent disagrees with the Council's decision he will direct that a formal Hearing be conducted.  Where it appears to the Council that there is an indication of wrongdoing under the Act ��� without  prejuding the matter ��� the Council will call an official Hearing. At the Hearing, both the complainant and  the licensees involved would be afforded an opportunity to be heard. A complainant is reimbursed by the  Council for any reasonable travel, lodging, or meal expenses incurred in attending a Hearing, the only  expense to him being the cost of the statutory declaration.  Following the Hearing, the findings and recommendations of the Council would be forwarded to the  Superintendent of Insurance for such action as he might deem necessary in respertof the licensees, which  may include:  ��� dismissing the complaint,  ��� reprimanding the licensees involved,  ��� suspending the licences of the licensees involved,  ��� cancelling the licences of the licensees involved.  In the case of a reprimand or suspension the licensee(s) may be ordered to enroll in a course of study.  It must be emphasized that the Real Estate Council does not have jurisdiction to adjudicate in contract or  monetary matters for which there are civil remedies through the courts. In those cases consumers should  seek legal counsel. However, the fact that civil action may be required does not mean that a complaint  under the Real Estate Act should not be made if a consumer believes a real estate licensee might have been  guilty of wrongdoing.
