Array LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  r^  FOR PROGRESS  BRITISH COLUMBIA  Chamber of Commerce Week  February 24 - 28,1992  50 cents per copy on news stands  SERVING THE SUNSHINE COAST SINCE 1945  February 24,1992    Volume 46     Issue 08  I  if ���  Hill's expansion  plan merits  review: council  Noise chief argument against plan  by Ctuflti Hirt  In spite or a recommendation from town planner Rob Buchan to  reject a rezoning application that would allow expanded marine services on the Gibsons waterfront, council has decided to hold a public  meeting on the issue.  The proposed extension of Hill's Machine Shop would provide an  additional marine railway for repairing and servicing boats at the site  - an idea strenuously opposed by residents of a nearby strata development.  They argue the noisy nature of the work would devalue adjacent  land and have a negative impact on their lifestyle, a position supported by Buchan, who noted in a report to council Tuesday that the  expansion would be incompatible with multi-family residential development earmarked for the area in the town's draft official community  plan.  Meanwhile, several mariners have written to council urging support for the application, saying better marine services are needed if  Gibsons is to maintain its image as a vibrant, boating community.  Buchan's report focuses on the technical deficiencies of the application, pointing out that the Hill's site area is only 8,400 square feet,  while the marine zone has a minimum requirement of 11,840 square  feet. He told council there is legally no way of circumventing the  deficiency, "even by way of a development variance permit.Staff are  in the position of having no other choice than making the recommendation that is before you now."  Buchan also noted deficiencies in lot depth, yard requirements and  several other regulations.  But Mayor Eric Small pointed out that it is possible for council to  alter bylaw regulations, supporting Aid John McNevin's suggestion  to hold a public meeting on the Hill's issue.  "I'm pleased we haven't killed the application tonight," Small said  after council's vote. "The applicant deserves further hearing on this."  The mayor stressed, however, that the meeting will not be a public  hearing for rezoning, merely an information meeting for council  guidance.  "We'll be going into it with an open mind," he said. "We're not  implying either approval or denial at this stage."

Giles clips  Rose in  Sechelt  by-election  Sechelt council's new alderman, Rosina Giles, took the  oath of office Wednesday after  narrowly edging out candidate  Don Rose in the Feb. 15 by-  election.  The other two candidates,  Bill Phillips and Jacques Van  Brabant trailed far behind.  According to Sechelt Mayor  Nancy MacLarty, voter turn-out  for the election was around 22  per cent of the municipalities  3,233 eligible voters for a total  of 722 ballots cast.  "Not a great turnout considering we had three advance  polls and three mobile polls, in  addition to the regular set up,"  MacLarty noted.  Giles received 291 votes  while Rose received 272.  Van Brabant had 87 nods  from the public and 72 people  wanted Phillips to win the election.  Giles, who has lived in  Sechelt since 1987, has 16  years experience as municipal  administrator for Spirit River,  Alberta.  She also served one year on  the municipal council for Spirt  River.  The by-election was necessitated by the resignation of former Alderman Doug Reid in  November of last year.  In giving up his post, Reid,  cited philosophical differences  with MacLarty that made continuing to work with her impossible.  The regional district said it  was meant to correct inconsistencies, contradictions and  reduce the potential for land-  use conflicts. But Pender Harbour residents who turned out to  a public hearing had other ideas. They said it  would dramatically change the current land uses  allowed in their area and reduce the value of their  property.  Last Tuesday, the regional district's land use  Bylaw 337 made another noisy appearance at a  public hearing, as about 73 Pender Harbour residents came out to the Madeira Park community  hall to voice their concern and displeasure.  "I don't think the people of Area A want any  zoning change, period," said Bill Milligan, "...and  I'd like you to consult me personally before you  change my property rights."  Those feelings were echoed by a number of  other residents, including Howard White, who said  the new bylaw would result in people "losing significant values of their property investments" and  force a change of lifestyle in the area.  The new bylaw, which if passed would establish new land-use zones and subdivision districts  Residents express  concerns over  property values  in Electoral Area A, would  replace the existing Bylaw 96,  which currently allows a much  more encompassing use of land  in many areas of Pender Harbour. Of particular concern to  residents was the replacement  of the existing R3 zone, which currently applies to  much of Madeira Park, Francis Peninsula, and the  lower slope of Garden Bay, and which allows a  wide variety of uses including commercial and  light industrial with new R2 and R3 zones in  Bylaw 337.  The new zones allow for limited home-based  businesses and "auxiliary commercial uses," but  place a number of restrictions on them including  the amount of space which may be used for these  purposes, the number of employees a business may  employ and the types of commercial activity  allowed.  Judy Skogstad, senior planner for the regional  district, told the public hearing that "Bylaw 337  was not intended to be an exercise in rezoning  property to uses which are not now permitted."  But a number of residents disagreed with her.  "If you are going to take away my commercial  turn to page 2  'Discovery' sunk  by red tape  Plans to build a sailing replica of Captain George Vancouver's  ship, Discovery, were permanently shelved last week by the special project team of the Sunshine Coast Maritime History Society  in Gibsons.  Market research presented to the group by management consultants, Ference & Weiker of Vancouver, and lack of flexibility  on the part of Canadian Coast Guard interpretation of safety  aspects of the current Canada Steamship Act, sounded the death  knell for the ambitious undertaking.  The 100-foot wooden sailing vessel was the object of a comprehensive business plan, started by Ference and Weiker in the  first week of December. However, work on the plan was halted  late last week when research revealed the ship could not survive  on a break-even operating basis featuring only day trips from Gibsons harbour.  Overnight cruises of three to nine days duration for special  interest groups, a key part of the preliminary marketing plans, had  recently been ruled out because safety regulations require a steel-  hulled ship. Other stringent prerequisites literally eliminated the  opportunity to build a wooden replica of the ship in Gibsons harbour.  Current safety regulations under which the ship would have to  be built would allow a wooden ship to make day excursions, but  there would have been severe restrictions on its ability to travel.  turn to page 14  Native speakers debate self-government obstacles  Words in the constitution  might be a nice philosophical  gesture, but when it comes  down to brass- ta'eks it will' be  both the education of young  people, and the land and  resources necessary for a sound  economic base that the success  of native self-goverment  depends on.  That was the message delivered by speakers at a recent  conference on self-government,  hosted by the Sechelt Indian  Band at the Raven's Cry Theatre Feb.15.  "The mere amending of the  constitution does not give you  self-government," said Fred  Walchli, former regional director for the Department of Indian  Affairs. There's still a lot of  complex legal negotiations for  bands to go through in order to  achieve self-government.  Among other things, self-government has provided the  Sechelt band with registered  title to their lands, which can be  sold, developed, or used as collateral for capital loans - something which bands operating  under the Indian Act still can't  do because title to reserve lands  still lies with the Crown.  is a long standing one in Canada," said Walchi.  But at the same time, it is  still important to recognize land  claims as including cultural and  spiritual concerns. Said Art  Thevarge, a native entrepreneur  at the conference,     "We're not really  making a real estate  deal with the government of Canada  and BC."  During the conference, speakers  also addressed con-  was  'The Sechelt  have always  been a  source of  cerns about how   inspiration.  third parties and  non-natives would      be affected by self-  once  self-government  negotiated.

In  discussing environmental  issues, conference organizer  Stan Dixon said Sechelt advocated the idea of sustainable  development, but added, "If the  white federal and provincial  governments maintain the status  quo, there'll be nothing left for  us to look after."

Patrick Prince, a member of  the McLeod Lake band  involved in self-government  negotiations, said, "One thing  I've learned here are the legal  aspects which are involved,"  including the effects on different levels of government and on  non-native third parties.  Veme Solonas, also from the  McLeod Lake band, said, "The  Sechelt have always been a  source of inspiration for us  when it come to tackling issues  head on."

In an eight-page report received by council Tuesday, Buchan says  the scope and complexity of the task places it beyond time constraints  placed on the planning department by its daily activities. The planner  notes that the existing plan, drawn up in 1985 and reviewed in 1988,  is no longer applicable to the expected growth and future economic  needs of the community and recommends a three-phase plan to arrive  at a new draft.  The first phase would focus on a general review of changes that  have occurred since 1985. phase 11 would examine land use, infrastructure, transportation and public facility needs, and the final phase  would be concerned with implementing the plan.  At the completion of phase II, Buchan recommends a public infor  mation meeting be held to keep residents up to date on the report's  findings prior to public hearing.  "The final submission of the draft OCP should occur after the public workshop to ensure all comments and issues raised by residents  are documented and appropriately dealt with by the plan."  Buchan estimates that the review process outlined in his report  would take until October to complete, but added the timeline could be  reduced if council opts to combine phases or cut back on lime allocated for the public workshop.  Council decided a review of the plan's first draft was warranted  after more than 200 people showed up lo comment on the fust draft  at a public hearing on the OCP Jan. 8.  As Buchan \ report was a late addition to Tuesday's agenda, council referred a decision on the recommendations to its next meeting  March 3.

Bill Lynch said the board  should consider split zones on  some larger properties because  for certain owners, "no matter  what kind of zone you try to  plunk him into, it won't work."  Several people also  expressed concern.lhe new zoning would affect the value of  their property.  Joe Harrison, whose family  members own several parcels of  land in the area, told the hearing, "If you take a piece of  property and reduce the number  of choices you have to use the  property, you have in effect  expropriated a large amont of  its value.  "That is an unfair thing  unless the decision represents  the will of the community  expressed in some overall community plan."  Several other residents also  told the hearing they wanted to  see an official community plan  in place before proceeding to a  new zoning bylaw.  In addition, a number of people told the hearing they didn't  iike the way the bylaw process  was being handled, saying the  public hearing wasn't adequately advertised and that the bylaw  was being rushed through without due consideration to the  wishes of Area A residents.  "I'm not aware of any pressing  panic to get this zoning process  done," said John Malcolm.  "There's still a huge pile of us  out there who aren't happy with  this".  Amid these concerns, three  people expressed support fot the  bylaw, two of whom said they  were members of the bylaw  working committee.- Said Marg  Bennett, "I don't know what the  problem is."  The hearing was adjourned  following a motion from Area  A director Gordon Wilson, who  said specific concerns about  various "ambiguities" were significant enough to warrant a  review of the bylaw. He added,  however, that "it is not my  intention to formally delay this  process. We're not talking  about a wholesale rewrite of the  bylaw."  �� ?& North  riiOaks  767 North Rd.

Margaret Morrison to  resign from council.  Morrison, admitted to Lions  Gate Hospital in North Vancouver after a recent heart attack,  reluctantly concluded she could  not continue to fufil her alder-  manic duties. "Being unable to  do the job in the way 1 would  like lo see it done, I would prefer to be replaced," she said in a  letter lo council.  Aldermen accepted the resignation Tuesday, but have not  named a date for a by-election.  Morrison suggested the ballot  be held at the same time as the  pool referendum, tentatively set  for April 6, and council said the  date will be considered.  Mayor Eric Small described  Morrison as a team player  whose legal and municipal  baqckground proved a valuable  resource to other council members. "Margaret will be missed  at council as she has undertaken  her duties with energy, enthusiasm and great commitment to  the people of Gibsons." Small  said.  Margaret  Morrison  Sechelt's main thoroughfare  change put off indefinitely  by Stuart BumtMa*  Sechelt's Teredo Street is now officially part of  Highway 101 as part of the project to make the road  Sechelt's main thoroughfare, but there are grumblings in Sechelt council chambers that it could take  as long as two years to start the work necessary to  make the plan a reality.  At Wednesday's Sechelt council meeting, Mayor  Nancy MacLarty said the work on Teredo was put-  off for an indefinite period of time and Cowrie  Street would have to continue serving as Sechelt's  main thoroughfare even now that Cowrie is designated a municipal street.  Aid. Bob Wilson speculated the reason highways  put off working on the project could have to do with  the stability of ground found under sections of the  proposed route - it might not Ik- solid enough for a  municipal highway.  "When they first put Teredo street in," Wilson  said, "they found about 13 feet of peat that had to be  removed."  Work to change Sechelt's main thoroughfare  from Cowrie to Teredo was to have been done in  two stages this year, starting in March and running  through April, then starting again in September after  the tpurist season ended.  The goal was to lessen tlte traffic along Cowrie  street to make it safer for pedestrians. The project  was approved and budgeted by the Ministry of  Highways (MOH) last year.  A ministry spokesman told the Coast News the  "declassification" of Cowrie and reclassification of  Teredo meant the project was scheduled to go  ahead, but he didn't know when.  "There's been a bit of a freeze put on a lot of  things recently," Rob Wood told the Coast News,  "but that project is definitely scheduled to proceed."  Wood didn't know the reason for the freeze on  MOH projects.  Project manager Lee Mattel was unavailable for  comment by press time.  Lack of progress on the project has dampened  council's enthusiasm for installing a crosswalk on  the corner of Wharf Street and Ocean Avenue to  serve children from Sechelt elementary as well as  seniors from Shorncliff.  Council has acknowledged the need to make the  intersection safer and parents and teachers have  requested it many times, but council felt it would be  too dangerous to put in a pedestrian crossing until  Teredo becomes the main highway.  "It would just give people a false sense of security," explained Aid. Michael Shanks. "It would make  them think that intersection is safer than it actually  is."  HSPP leaks send offensive  gases over Gambier Island  Gambier Island residents  complained they were hit with  the aroma of mill gases Feb. 16  and 17.  According to the shift engineer al Howe Sound Pulp and  Paper, there was a problem with  the incinerating system on  February 16 resulting from a  clogged gas line. There were  more difficulties in changing  thfc line over to a back-up burning system and, as a result, gas  was "vented" into ihe atmosphere for about six minutes.  The shift engineer said the  initial problem in the gas line  was one of condensation built-  up. He said it was a poorly  designed portion of a new system that didn't drain the condensation properly and would  be repaired during the next mill  maintenance shut down.  The engineer said the smell  of gas Ihe next day resulted  from a faulty rupture disc.  Rupture discs are the equivalent of safety valves that break  when the storage facilities for  non-condensible gases reach a  certain pressure (around 10  pounds).  A rupture disc broke Feb. 17  and non-condensible gases were  released for around three minutes.  I WISH TO THANK ALL  those electors who had faith in me and  what I believe in and showed their support at the  polling stations.  To my coworkers and friends who stood solidly  behind me and urged me to stand for election,  many, many thanks.

February 24. 1192  opinion  Harbour future  hangs on Hill's  It would have been easy for Gibsons council to have  seized on the technical reasons offered by planner Rob  Buchan for rejecting proposed expansion of Hill's  Machine Shop, a waterfront marine repair business.  That aldermen didn't kill the proposal when the application came up for discussion last Tuesday is indicative of  council's sincere efforts to weigh public opinion carefully  before making decisions that will set the tone for future  development of the town.  Such is the Hill's proposal to add a second marine way  for boal repair and service. It is pivotal because the community is currently undergoing a process of intense self-  examination in attempts to draw up an ambitious community plan that balances community desires with  inescapable growth, and the proper destiny of the waterfront is central to that debate.  On one hand, the draft official community plan envisages multi-family residential zoning for the waterfront  area surrounding the Hill's site The municipal planner  suggests that designation is unlikely to change during the  OCP review process which is just now getting underway,  and he argues that adjacent property owners have a legitimate beef with the potential negative effect on both land  values and lifestyle pursuant to placing a marine zone in  an area destined for high-value residential development.  But there are other views of how the Gibsons harbour  should develop. At January's OCP hearing, several residents spoke of their fears the waterfront could succumb to  the kind of tourist beautification and condo development  which has all but destroyed the natural charm of other  harbours.  And one of the chief differences between the OCP and  the downtown revitalization plan recently completed by  the Gibsons Merchants' Association is the association's  clear desire to see a 'working harbour' maintained.  There is plenty of substance to their argument that Gibsons is a boating community first, a proud distinction  which will be seriously undermined in the future if proper  marine services aren't available.  Municipal leaders could have ducked the dichotomy for  now by falling back on bylaw specifications which rule  the Hill's site is too .small to qualify for the marine zone.  (Buchan pointed out that, legally, this inadequacy cannot  be overcome by way of a development variance permit, as  it proposed.)  To their credit, they did not. Council has previously  pledged to iron out the harbour discrepancies evident in  the OCP and downtown revitalization plan. The public  meetf*ig for the Hill's plan, for which a date has still to be  set, v> ill provide an excellent opportunity for residents to  sound their views.  letters welcome  .

I want to address a  popular area of bashing that he  has forgotten, and thai is  cigarette smoking.  I live in a family where both  extremes of every view are generally represented and this is  true of smoking too. I don't  smoke, my husband does. I  started, as he did, as a teenager,  but I was able to quit. After 10  years, he hasn't, he remains like  many people, hopelessly addicted.  As you can imagine our  opposite positions become com-^  plicated when we go out. The  most recent example of this was) ,�����*���  the SOS for Nature dance in  Roberts Creek on Feb. 15.  When we arrived, we were  told thai this was a "non-smoking" dance, so John asked me to  take him home, which I did,  while he grumbled about the  fact that nowhere in any advertising for the dance was there  any mention of the non-smoking aspect.  Why not? This, I think, is the  interesting pari. An issue, as  small as this one and how it is  dealt wih by various people is a  real indicator of changing social  attitudes.  I returned lo the dance,  refunded John's ticket and did a  bit of a poll. Here's what I  learned:  First of all, 1 asked people  who put on the dance about the  question, they said, "Well, since  we didn't advertise it. he could  have smoked" If he wanted to  push the issue. ( Now, of  course, if he had pushed, he  would have been cast as the  smoking villain).  Then I talked to other smokers, and they had also been  asked to smoke outside. Some  were disgruntled about it and  some accepted easily. Of  course, the non-smokers were  happy to dance in clean air.  Now, I'm going to make a  great leap in suppositions here  and state that I think the nonsmoking at dances policy has  been carried out in this underhanded way because dances are  usually liquor licensed and that  even though a no smoking policy has become the norm in most  public places, the one place il  hasn't is in drinking establish-,  ments.  Even non-smokers still lo  some degree associate drinking  with smoking. And non-smokers still want smokers to patronize their events and spend  money, but not smoke. All this  brings me to make an appeal;  please advertise a non-smoking  dance as such and let's bring  societal changes about with  consideration.  MARIKO KIYOOKA  Act to abrogate  trade deal  I didn't think there could be  anything more sickening than  the 'Free' Trade Deal itself, but  there is. It's the whine: "The  deal's not working out, and  there's nothing we can do about  it!"  The deal is working out,  exactly as Intended by the U.S.  and Lyin' Brian, and that's bad  enough. But the really sickening  pan of that whine is the part at  the end. Of course we can do  something about it!  People have said this trade  deal is like an invasion front the  States. 1 think so too. With a  military invasion, though,  would Canadians droop around  moaning, "They've got a hig  chunk of our territory...there's  nothing we can do?" No. we  wouldn't. So now why this "too  bad, we quit" mentality?  We just have to elect a government that's going to get rid  of ihe deal. Abrogate it. That  has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?  Suppose the NDP didn'l run  any candidates in parts of the  East where Ihey have a sow-  ball's chance anyway! And suppose the Liberals didn't run any  in parts of the West, where  they've only picked up one or  two in decades. The two parties  would agree in writing to split it  this way, and also agree that  whichever got in would "abrogate" that trade deal (stomp on  it), supported by the other party.  They wouldn't have to agree on  anything else. They wouldn't  even have to trust each other, in  a public "up-front" agreement  like that.  It's called an electoral coalition and it's commonly done in  other places. Some Liberal and  NDP leaders are quite interested. There is only one thing that  can keep it from succeeding: the  "nothing-can-be-done" mentality.  On Thursday, March 26, al  Greencourt Hall, Sechell al 7:30  pm, Liam Grayer of Ihe group  called Citizens Concerned  About Free Trade (CCAFT)  will explain this concept and  answer questions. Everyone's  invited. Here's a chance to  shake those 'Whiney Blues'.  IRIS GRIFFITH  Egmont  Garbage politics  short-sighted  The Pender Harbour dump is  in our backyard (literally), only  three quarters of a mile away  from our property. For that reason alone, although there are  others, we would like lo see it  either:  a) closed, with a sile available elsewhere where il cannot  affect our watersheds, or  b) changed into a transfer  station as the Sunshine Coast  Regional District has proposed.  In either case, we cannot go  on any longer without a controlled method of disposing of  our garbage. The people of  Hornby Island have reduced  their garbage to 25 per cent.  We can't continue to dump  anything into our ground and  not consider our drinking water  or the wildlife affected, when  there is a better alternative  available. Let's forget politics  and our near-sighted, selfish  ways and think about our children's future.  LINDA AND DAVID GOBLE  Garden Bay, BC  The tocsin tolls a trade warning for all Canadians  The plight of the Canadian farmer has drawn  much ink, much political rhetoric al election times,  and very little real understanding from our largely  urban society. As long as our supermarkets are  filled to overflowing with the familiar plenty there  is little lo motivate the average Canadian urban  dweller to consider the sources.  It's not unlike the enthusiastic meat eater of my  acquaintance who said recently lhat the only thing  he didn't like about a mutual friend was that he  was a trapper. Something about skinning the meat  off dead animals was repugnant to him. The familiar roasts and loin cuts must come pre-cut and  wrapped in cellophane to be acceptable.  So with the plight of the food producer. In our  highrises and in our suburbs and shopping malls  we can hear that farmers are going bankrupt in  record numbers, but if the produce section of our  super market is piled high with colourful vegetables and if our pre-skinned meat selection continues in its familiar cellophane-wrapped abundance,  what concern is it of ours thai those among us who  have not had enough sense to move into an urban  setting long ago are having a rough time?  Last week, as if things weren't rough enough  down on the farm, Canada lost another round in  the agricultural negotiations taking place in Geneva under the umbrella of GATT. The powerful  musings  John burnside  European Common Market doesn't like Canadian  marketing boards and neither do the Americans  who are living through an ideological fever of  renouncing all regulations at the present time.  So, with such foes and such allies, the writing  has been on the wall for the marketing boards on  the international agricultural stage for some time.  This is something that our ineffable prime minister knows well and there is something truly despicable about his grand standing about going over to  Europe to fight shoulder to shoulder with the farmers for their marketing boards. It is playing politics  with human suffering and fears; it is presiding with  hypocrisy over the near terminal illness of an  invaluable component in the Canadian mosaic.  As if being beset by the Europeans and the  Americans, both of whom have done untold damage to Canadian agriculture quite absent mindedly  whilst engaged in a trade war of their own, were  not enough the Canadian farmer gets precious little  support or sympathy from the almost equally  beseiged Canadian taxpayer on the issue of marketing boards. The management of supply is  designed to avoid boom and bust pricing cycles  and in the short term such management means  higher prices for the consumer. Millions of Canadians every year are showing what they think of  that as they flood over into the States to buy, for  example, cheaper milk  It serves no purpose for our farmers to point lo  their higher costs in a northern climate nor to Ihe  higher social costs in a country which provides  medical care to all its citizens. The taxpayers are in  rebellion and marketing boards and the farmers  they protect can take it in the neck for all the  Canadian public cares.  You really don't have to gaze into the innards  of too many deregulated chickens to determine  that all this cannnot be in the long-term best interests of the country.  And you have to wonder, as Canada gets regularly sandbagged on the street comers of international trading life with no hand or voice raised to  support her - here one thinks not only of the farmers of the country but the fishermen of B.C. and  Newfoundland - what exactly is it we'get in this  much-touted free trade agreement with the Americans. They get access to our energy supplies, and  eventually perhaps to our fresh water, in perpetuity, but we cannot gain access even to their peripheral understanding of who we are and what is different about our circumstances.  And these are our chosen allies in international  trade. Across the Pacific the Orient is stirring into  massive life; across the Atlantic the western Europeans have thoughtfully and step by step put  together in the last thirty years a massive and  mutually supportive trading bloc.  We have hitched our wagon and gambled our  future in close relationship with what seems to be  the shooting star of American dominance; along  with the hapless and desperate Mexicans we are  hastily allying ourselves lo a fading super star  which at the momenl seems to have lost its own  way in economic matters and never has been distinguished by close concern for its neighbours to  the north or the south.  As our beseiged farmers receive another devastating blow this month, we may well be secure  amidst plenty and indifferent.  The course this country follows, however, may  well be one in which the hardships fallen upon our  food producers await us all. The tocsin tolls for all  of us.  cmst  The Sunshine Coasl News is locally owned  and published on me Sunshine Coast, B C  every Monday Dy Glassford Press Lid... Boi  -460. Gibsons. B C. VON IVO.

Harry Turner,  John Ra*ner  Bev Cranston  Jo .Anne Sheann  your community's  AWARD-WINNING  newspaper  Wa^aaaaakJ Coast News, February 24, 1992  opinion  in a nutshell  s. nutter  A young friend was in Ihe other day pointing oul thai the democratic government of Algeria had cancelled a democratic election  there because the Muslin fundamentalists were obviously going lo  win it Our press, he said, seemed lo agree wilh this action, but what  sort of 'democracy' was litis?  It is a point all right, and a thorny one, and one that looks as if il  might cone up more and more in various parts all over our world. Is  there in fact any son of an answer to this apparent dilemma?  It might he said, 1 suppose, lhat a democratic government has a  fitsl requirement lo defend democracy in its country, and thai 'fundamentalism' is by definition undemocratic, regardless of how many of  the adherents can be brought lo vole for it.  Rut litis gets us immediately, as can be clearly seen, into all kinds  of devious problems, more and more devious than there are in Ihe  Great Canadian Constitutional debate. There is a question of whether,  in this space, we really want lo gel into it. I am, however, going to  plow along here today and let the intrepid follow.  Democracy versus fundamentalism  My bedrock idea of democracy is, as Churchill said, the least of  the number of evils. My idea of fundamentalism is that it is ihe natural result of sentimentality. Sentimentality is defined as Ihe willingness to proceed with only part of the facts, the part, of course, that  you would like to be true.  Democracy requires a willingness to debate all matters openly and  freely, but sentimentality leads inevitably to dogmas, and dogmas are  necessarily against debate. If you are holding fast to some cherished  belief, knowing really that it can't be defended in open debate, then  you are more likely lo turn away and start gathering ammunition, slogans or guns or whatever.  In countries where there are known opposing dogmas of one kind  and another, it has been possible to get together parliaments which  are more or less representative of all. But there is really no debate.  They simply shout at each other, in turn or in unison. So, you re-elect  this thing, bul of course, it turns out lo be the same spilling cauldron,  producing no soup.  So what lo do about this, if anything? A person who doesn't truly  believe in anything is not worth a pinch; bul a person who won't  compromise whatever for Ihe good of society at large is a chauvinist  pig  We probably can't legislate in litis area, regardless of how many  conferences, referenda, or whatever we may stage Education has  always been considered the bulwark against sentimentality. A person  with some perspective of the past is less likely to jump on bandwagons in the present is what they thought. But school education in the  last 40 years has done little in this regard.  We can probably legislate the political scopes of various dogmas,  Im! not their behaviour in parliament or on the media's M-reens. There  are, of course, far more dogmas than there are churches What are we  to make for example, of people born Tories going through their  whole lives wilh the simple belief that the Tories must lie right? But  arc the Liberals different? Or Ihe NOP? It is tempting lo think that if  Canada had a fairy godmother (and there are people around who  maybe think we have) and if she waved her wand, and the whole  party system disappeared, what then?  Nobody said it would be easy  We would go on electing the best person we saw from all the  small constituencies across the country, people we might quite likely  know, male or female as it might be, Circassian, Maldivian, Valkerie  or Etonian; French maybe, and there they would all go lo Ihe Canadian parliament with equal voices.  The media it is true, would have more work to do, but nobody said  it was going to he easy. Instead of simply taking the opposite side to  the party in power Ihey would have to sift and evaluate through all  these ideas from all these representatives from across the land. There  might be no guidelines. They might have lo have opinions, and their  readers might disagree.  Give or take a fairy godmother - I'm all for il. Anyone who wants  to start a prairie fire in this direction can apply lo me for matches.

Il is particularly unfortunate  that the impression given in Ihe  newspaper was one that Travel  Sunshine Coast is not "a rational organization" and that Ihe  EDC did not want to support "a  disorganized balkanized organization."  Those statements could be  taken as a slap in Ihe face by  many hardworking, volunteer  members and underpaid staff  who have contributed many  long hours to support tourism  development whenTunding has  been scarce from Ihe EDC, as it  has been in the last three years.  This backwards step by the  EDC in noi supporting tourism  as BC's number one industry  shows the EDC is irresponsible  in its economic development  function if it is the only community in BC thai does not believe  that tourism dollars are important to every business in our  community.  In my opinion, Bill Moore,  in his important position as economic development officer, has  been most irresponsible in not  supporting tourism development. Bill sat on all our board  of directors meetings along with  representatives from all the  Sunshine Coast chambers and  Gibsons and Sechelt municipalities. Yet he did not support our  requests to the EDC at meetings  and was curiously silent on our  behalf.  He knew of our close working relationship with Powell  River to support the Circle Tour  and  with  the  Ministry  of  Tourism to receive 'partnered'  money for every dollar of local  funding used to promote the  Sunshine Coast, yet he did not  support us publicly or lo the  EDC.  Powell River spends approximately $100,000 annually lo  promote tourism development,  yel the EDC felt that $20,000  was too much to spend to promote the 'lower' Sunshine  Coast and has chosen to drop  their funding to only $15,000.  That is a pathetic statement in  comparison to other BC communities .  I hope that the EDC will  reconsider its position in taking  this very backwards step in the  growth of our economic base.

Renaud said Kodak is helping  to unite a 10-member group of  secondary school photography  teachers from the Vancouver  area, including herself, who will  meet next month to discuss the  direction photography should  take in education.  "What we will probably be  looking at is what can be done  towards setting up student  apprenticeship programs with  businesses or corporations so  thai students don't feel they  have to go right off lo a post  secondary facility," Renaud  said.  The 10 teachers attending the  forum have been selected  because of the "uniqueness" of  their programs, according to  Renaud, and because all are  going to participate in a Kodak-  sponsored photography exhibition of student works entitled  Images of Who We Are.  Some 280 photographic  works will be on display by students from Vancouver, Ottawa  and Toronto areas: 56 schools  will participate wilh each school  contributing five works. The  theme of the exhibition is Life in  Canada, and students have been  encouraged lo capture images of  what being a Canadian means.  The photographs from  Renaud's students have already  been chosen.  Kodak representative Lesley  Sparks told the Coast News that  Kodak's interest in education is  to encourage photography as a  career choice. She said her company furthered that goal through  its Focus on Education program,  which supports and encourages  ��� process  which  helped  students  create  these five  'IMAGES  OF  WHO  WE  ARE'  students of photography nv  holding lectures with working  photographers, and through  activities like the Images of  Who We Are exhibit.  In addition lo the interest and  assistance from Kodak, Riiiaml  said she and her photography  students had recently been  approached by a business benefactor from Vancouver who  expressed interest in helping the  photography program in "whatever way possible."  The benefactor, whom  Renaud preferred remain anonymous, has asked what the  Elphinstone photography program would need in the way of  equipment to be successful.  "He wanted to know what  direction we're going in,"  Renaud said, "and what it would  take to get us there. And the  truth is, we don't really know  yet; it's they students that are  leading the way, they decide the  direction they want to take.

And to rest your feet  (museums are always hard on  the feel), sit awhile in the Roxy  movie theatre on Ihe third floor  to see the clowns of the silent  film days.  Last December it was Buster  Keaton stumbling, fumbling,  falling as only those geniuses  could, to underline the ineptness  of their characters.  A short walk to the front  lawns of the legislature and the  comer at Bellevue and Menzies  brings you lo a new totem of  immense girth and commanding  aspect.  Totems  The totem is a gift to the  people of BC from the First  Nation Salish of southern Vancouver Island. The totem heralds the preparations for the  1994 Commonwealth Games in  Victoria.  Called the Knowledge  Totem, a companion piece to  the totem sent lo Auckland for  this year's games, its four figures recognize the importance  of the lessons of the past as well  as a hope for the future of coming generations. Carved by master carver Cicero August, aided  by his two sons, the four figures  represent all aspects of past Salish cultural life.  The loon atop the pole is the  one who taught men the way to  spread the teachings of the tribe.  Below the loon the fisherman, a  larger than life figure, shows the  traditional means of living from  nature's bounty.  The third figure down, the  bone game player, reveals the  re-creation that test the players'  alertness and team spirit, a  game that needs no language in  order to play. At the bottom Ihe  frog holds all steady in place - a  figure in Native legend.

This  society consists of four divisions: Adult Daycare (at Kirkland Centre), the Hospice  Program, Home Support (care  at home) and Meals on Wheels.  A Valentine's luncheon was  held al Kirkland Centre Friday,  Feb. 14 to honour and recognize  25 Meals on Wheels' volunteers: an enthusiastic welcome  was extended to the guests by  Martha Scales, executive director of the home Support Society, and Barbara Ferrett,  president of ihe society. This  was followed by a delicious  lunch prepared by chef Alanna  Wood, who prepares all the  meals for Ihe Adult Daycare.  The Meals on Wheels Program is an integral part of the  community, providing hot,  nourishing meals three times a  week to seniors, convalescing  or disabled adults for a nominal  tlavls bay news  fee of $3.75 per meal. Approximately 32 people from Langdale to Halfmoon Bay are  currently receiving this service,  some 312 prepared meals each  month.  Scales announced the introduction of new meal containers  which are to be put in use this  week. They are to be used initially in the Sechelt area and  later on will be available in Gibsons. The containers are made  of durable plastic, insulated so  as to keep foods hot for up to  one and a half hours and are  dishwasher safe.

Feb. 29 is traditionally Bachelor's Day or more commonly.it  is known as Sadie Hawkins  Day. This is the day when a  spinster may ask a bachelor for  his hand in marriage.  While researching the subject, I found no pertinent information on this old-fashioned  custom, but 1 remember as a  young girl all the hoopla on that  special day. There were Sadie  Hawkins dances and parties  where everyone dressed up and  the gals got to ask the guys to  dance - daring in those days!  Leap Year and Sadie  Hawkins  Al Capp, creator of the L'il  Abner comic strip was largely  responsible for creating the  interest in this unusual custom.  First introduced in 1934, it was  set in the mythical backwoods  community of Dogpatch, USA.  Broadly humorous, it featured  roberts creek  characters such as L'il Abner,  the shy and awkward hillbilly;  fJaisy Mae, the persistent, curvy  damsel who finally snares  Abner on Sadie Hawkins Day  after a 17-year pursuit.  Then there was the pipe-  smoking Mammy Yokum who  puffed on her pipe and egged  Daisy Mae on. Those of us who  can remember, followed their  antics with glee, some pulling  for Daisy Mae, others sympathizing with L'il Abner.  It's rather special to have a  birthday on Feb. 29 as you only  get to celebrate it once every  fourth year. That's why I must  wish Gerry a very happy birthday-he's only 15!

Since trees are such an integral part of our environment, power outages caused by Tailing trees  and branches can never be completely eliminated.  However, you can assist in preventing a  significant number of these outages. Firsl, by  making sure that trees and branches do not  contact your service lines (the wires that run from  the power line to your house); and secondly, by  notifying your local Hydro office of trees on your  property which pose an additional hazard to  nearby public power lines. Examples would  include trees with poor roots and diseased,  damaged or leaning trees. When you call, Hydro  will inspect the sile and consult with you on the  appropriate action. If removal of the tree is agreed  upon to protect public power lines, Hydro will  pay the cost.  But please, don't take unnecessary risks by  working near live power lines. Call your local  Hydro office or a certified tree trimming company  for assistance.

Concerns included the road  washouts, which had caused sil-  lalion in Waugh Lake and Ihe  size of eutblocks, too large for  Ihe smaller companies could  bid on them. What does Waugh  Lake watershed reserve mean?  The nexl projected cuthlock is  directly above the most recently  cut area and is of tlte same size  (plus or minus 27 hectares).  This will, no doubt, cause even  more runoff and fast-moving  waler over the mountainside,  causing additional sihation and  erosion.

Robi Petraschuk  photo  Sechelt council softens  approach to unification  by Stuart Iwnsldf  Sechelt Council has rescinded a motion made Iwo weeks  ago that gave Mayor Nancy  MacLarty permission to discuss  "in principle" Ihe unification of  the Coast's various.governments under one authority.  Council instead passed a new  motion Wednesday staling "the  District of Sechelt agrees to  examine Ihe concept of a single  local government for the Sunshine Coast." The new motion  authorized the mayor and  administrator of Sechelt lo work  with their counterparts from the  other governments and "bring  hack to council a recommendation on a process to examine the  process."  MacLarty explained that  there was concern from at least  one council member as well as  Gibsons Mayor Eric Small,  toward the phrase "agrees in  sechelt council notes  principle" found in the original  motion. The concern was that il  might lead to the municipality  committing itself lo a stronger  course of action than intended  toward establishing a single  Coast governmenl.  Alderman Michael Shanks  called the change in motions a  "watering down" of the original  motion and he asked council not  to vote for it.  "My feeling," Shanks said,  "is that, if the three governments agreed 'in principle' to  look at this, something might  get done. If we're not looking  al it in principle it never will go  any further."  Shanks elaborated saying if  council were really interested in  looking info one Coast government they would gel the Ministry of Municipal Affairs  involved.  "1 don't think the three Coast  governments are capable of  assessing the ramification of  one Coast government themselves," Shanks said, "and  municipal affairs is."  MacLarty said she agreed  with Shanks, but said the new  motion was necessary as an initial step toward getting the  Coast governments working  together.  All the aldermen voted for  the new motion, including  Shanks, who said he was in  favour of the idea of pursuing  ihe one government concept bul  felt it should be approached  with more determination.  Gibsons council passed a  similar motion Tuesday authorising Small and administrator  Dan Legg to work with their  counterparts on the single-government concept.  Pedlars discussed  Sechelt administrator An  Lew has indicated it won't be  necessary for council to authorize Aid. Michael Shanks to  respond to complaints of pedlars working the municipality  on weekends.  Lew said there was "no way"  under the Municipal Act to stop  pedlars from operating within  the municipality, but said pedlars are required to have a  Sechelt business licence to sell  their products.  He said that in addition to  lars. He said this deposit might  act as a deterrent.  Lew said the public should  ask to see a business licence  before doing business with pedlars. Those caught operating  without a licence could receive  a court summons.  Lew also said the RCMP  could be contacted if pedlars  made themselves nuisances.  "They have indicated they will  help enforce our bylaws (under  those conditions)," he noted.  the $100 business licence, there  was also a $1,000 security bond  that could be required of ped-  Baha'i \^  Faith  yjV  The Baha'i teachings speak  titlt only lo the spirit of  man, bul Ihe heart...

Coast News, February 24, 1992 15  chamber meek  Enthusiastic Sechelt chamber  sets new goals for coming year  Boxes are strewn about the place and  there's an air of barely restrained chaos. But  the apparent sense of confusion caused by  the Sechelt Chamber of Commerce's imminent move to new premises in the Sechelt  Indian Band complex is illusory.  This is an organization which has undergone a lifesaving transformation in the last  year, rebuilding membership from a dwindling 33 businesses lo 120 at last count. With  that accomplishment under its belt, the executive has some clear goals for the coming  year.  "The chamber can now concentrate on  what it should be doing," says president Al  Driscoll, "promoting local business."  Driscoll has been at the centre of the  rebuilding effort and says the chamber is  now focusing its efforts in two areas: one  working on a tourism strategy and the other  looking at ways to stimulate development.  Driscoll says that tourism promotion is in  slate of flux as a result of the recent demise  of Travel Sunshine Coasl. The chamber is  not anxious to fill that role, he says, but has  plans to get together with the Gibsons and  Pender Harbour chambers to discuss the  Rejuvenated feeling  prompts headquarter  move to Indian Band  complex  topic.  One tourism project the chamber has been  planning is construction of a pier on Trail  Bay to attract cruise ships and recreation.  "The Sunshine Coast is really just starting  with tourism," says chamber office manager  Ann Kershaw, "and the potential is phenomenal." Kershaw said travel enquiries to the  infocentre in January and February are up  substantially over the same period last year,  with more people looking for short, getaway  trips from the Lower Mainland. Enquiries  are liable to increase when the infocentre  becomes established al its new location at  the entrance to town.  Aside from tourism promotion, the chamber believes it should assume the role of  advocate for business to local government,  taking a stand on bylaws and development  rules. There's a lol of people moving here -  to both Sechelt and Gibsons," Driscoll notes.  "But development in both communities is  shut down right now. It's been difficult to  get permits and that makes it harder for people to move in, and forces prices up."  The chamber is involved in a variety of  other programs, including the Capilano College job-re-entry program, SuperHost courses, home-based business workshops,  all-candidates forums, Cowrie beautification,  crime prevention programs and operating the  Sechelt boat ramp.  In the middle of a move to new premises,  Sechelt has kept chamber of commerce week  activities to a minimum this year. A '50s  rock and roll dance has been organized, celebrating the chamber's rejuvenation.  Local Traffic plays al the Legion Hall on  Wharf Street at 8 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 29.

Across the country recently,  Ovid Mercredi has been under  the hot lights of the TV cameras,  delivering his message on a "distinct society" of native people to  various constitutional conferences.  Bul here in Sechelt there are  other things to consider.  There's the expansion of  Capilano College's university  transfer courses in  the band's House  of Hewhiwus  complex. There's  work on the  band's salmon  hatchery in Porpoise Bay with the Department  of Fisheries, and plans for further  enhancement projects in the  band's traditional territories.  There's development of a slate  quarry and a marina to get off the  ground. There are plans to develop an old logging camp on hand  lands at Deserted Bay as a base  for recreational activities.  There's also a $54 million  land claim, accepted for negotiation, which both provincial and  federal governments have been  sitting on while they haggle  about cost-sharing arrangements.  "We don't really care how they  do it," says Paul, looking out  towards the water, "as long as it  gets done."  The Sechelt land claim covers  about 70 square miles, running  from Lang Bay in the north,  '...the Sechelt  Indian Band  had to go it on  its own...'  along the shoreline to the head of  Jet-vis Inlet, and down to Roberts  Creek in the south. The band  proposes to relinquish title to that  land, including property now  owned by private individuals or  companies, for compensation of  $54 million from the government  and a 50 per cent share of the  resources in traditional territories.  Compared to some of the  other land claims which have  been settled in remote areas of  ihe Yukon and the Northwest  Territories, the Sechelt claim is  relatively small, says Paul:  "They could have  settled our land  claim for the  amount of money  they spent on Oka  last year."  In one important respect, the Sechelt band is  in a different situation to most  other bands who are negotiating  land claims because they already  have self-government. While for  most bands the recognition of an  "inherent right" to self-government is tied in with their land  claims, the Sechelt band chose in  the 1980s to negotiate these  things separately.  That hasn't always sat well  with other native groups, like the  Assembly of First Nations, who  in the years since self-government was achieved have accused  the Sechelts of allowing "divide  and conquer" tactics by the government to weaken the position  of other native people. "They say  we've given up some of our  rights," says Paul. "We say, no  we haven't."  Sechelt  Indian  Band  Chief Tom Paul  points out  some  outstanding issues in land claim negotiations. Jane Seyd photo  Achieving self-goverment  was the result of a long and  eventually solitary process for  the band. "It came to the point  where the Sechelt Indian Band  had to go on its own," says Paul,  "because the parent bodies and  the groups in BC were going in a  different direction."  Since the self-government act  was signed, the Sechelt have had  title to their lands, control of  band membership, and a yearly  block-funding arrangement with  the federal government allowing  the band to set its own budget  directly, rather than having projects approved through the  Department of Indian Affairs.  Unlike other bands, the  Sechelt already have many of the  legal mechanisms in place to  effectively deal with their land  claim on a "government to government basis," says Paul. And  the band prefers that to becoming involved in a treaty process  like that set out in a report of the  BC Claims Task Force. "We  don't really care to gel involved  in that process because we feel  treaties are something of the  past," says Paul.  Even if the treaties are signed  by other bands, they'll still face  restrictions under the Indian Act,  he says. "They've still got that  paternal government controlling  them."  The Sechelt's own decision to  go it alone with self-government  was itself largely prompted by  restrictions they faced under the  Act, especially in the area of economic development Today, in  addition to controlling a budget  for education, social assistance,  and operation and maintenance  of band programs, the Sechelt are  involved in a variety of ventures  including the Sechelt Aggregates  gravel excavation, Thunderbird  and Tyee Air, and Forstar, a  company based on the Lower  Mainland which exports lumber  and forest products to Japan and  Europe.  Businesses and individuals  leasing property on band lands  pay property taxes to the Sechelt  Indian Government District. In  return, the band (in the legal  form of the SIGD) provides services like roads, garbage collection, and sewer, in conjuntion  with the regional district. Non-  natives on band lands have no  direct vote in government, but a  district advisory council of five  members represents their concerns to the Sechelt Band Council.  Bill C93, the federal Self-  Government Act of the Sechelt  People is, says Paul, "a  really  complex piece of paper."  Meanwhile, the band is still  waiti'tp to negotiate their land  claim, which Paul says would  provide the money to invest in  further economic development  projects lo ensure ,i solid future  for the Sechelt people.  Paul is critical of the way  some other bands have handled  'Paul is critical of  the way other  bands have  handled their  claim settlements'  their claim settlements in the  past, by dispersing it all to individual band members, rather than  making collective investments.  "They got thousands and thousands of dollars," he says. "People were buying cars. They more  or less blew it all, not thinking  about the future generations.  "That's not going to happen  here."  A negotiating team for the  Sechelt band has now been  formed to negotiate the land  claim, including present members of council Trent Dixon,  Garry Feschuk, Theresa Jeffries  and Ben Pierre, former chiefs  Stan Dixon and Calvin Craigan,  elders' representative Gilbert  Joe, Chief Tom Paul, and the  band's legal and financial advisors.  The only thing missing now  is a cost-sharing arrangement  between the federal and provincial governments  Community Services given  grant for womens issues  The Sunshine Coast Community Services Society has  received a $5,000 grant to purchase materials for a resource  library for women.  ���"Helping     communities  improve their services to  women is an important part of  our ministry's job," said  Women's Equality Minister  Penny Priddy. "Through our  Women's Grant Program, com-  Libraries presented TV,  VCR and video collection  The Gibsons and District Public Library, in conjunction with the  Sechelt Public Library, is the recipient of the Arts and Entertainment  Network's A&E Library Theatre.  This gift to the library includes a 20-inch colour TV, a video cassette recorder, and a collection of video tapes and companion volumes valued at $2,500.  The project is being made possible through Coast Cable Vision  Ltd., as part of its commitment to the community. It will provide  valuable videos, books and equipment for both local libraries to share  with the people they serve.  munity groups identify local  service needs and develop innovative programs or projects that  benefit women in their own  communities."  The Sunshine Coast Community Services Society will  use the grant to purchase materials for a print and video  resource library on issues  affecting women, including sexual assault, dating violence,  elder abuse and assault by male  partners.  Community organizations  may apply for funding through  the Women's Grant Program  three times a year.  A total of $569,113 has been  awarded in this grant period.  sasBSfa^t^tttSJ^  Get Results  with Coast News Advertising  "Consistently advertising with The Coast News has  increased our windshield business tenfold,"  says Brad Clowers, owner of  Peninsula Glass & Aluminum.

"I've run into people in the  business who were a lot crazier  than him. All 1 can say, he sure  does know his music. I'd give  plenty for a collection like that."  "You and your jazz," chides  lrma, good-naturedly.  Shortly after this, Elmer is  transferred to a different shift  and we don't see each other for  awhile. I begin dating a local  girl named Sharon Finney and  this starts to occupy much of  my free time. Occasionally I see  Doc Corey riding his bicycle  around the town, swaying along  unsteadily and singing to himself while old ladies tut-tut on  corners.

Unlike the previous occasion, the dentist seems in a  morose peculiar mood. "Didn't  Elmer come along with you?"  he questions in obvious disappointment.  I explain that Elmer is working and he nods resignedly.  Corey invites us in and plays  a few numbers, but his mind is  obviously elsewhere. He  exhibits none of his former  manic energy and enthusiasm.  The music is as great as ever  bul Ihe dentist's distracted manner puts a definite damper on  things. It is an awkward visit  and we do not stay long.  Sharon comments on  Corey's doleful mood. "You  think he doesn't like me?" she  queries.

Associate dean of academic  studies, Bill Gibson, has  returned to Capilano College  after spending two years as  head of the health sciences and  academic studies programs at  the Abu Dhabi Women's Higher College of Technology in the  United Arab Emirates.  He will share slides of his  travels including a safari in  Kenya, where he photographed  a charging cheeta, observed the  eating habits of a pride of lions  and stayed in the Tree Tops  Hotel situated above a saltlick  so he could watch elephants,  wildebeests, rhinos and hyenas.  Bring an appropriate potluck  dish, your own cutlery and plate  for a fun evening. Admission is  $5 at the door.  Winter films  The Winter Film Series continues at the centre, Wednesday  (Feb. 26) at 8 pm with Broken  Mirrors (Dutch with English  subtitles).  The film, like director Mar-  leen Gorris' first film, A Question of Silence, is impressive.  Two story lines, one a thriller in  which a sadistic killer kidnaps  and imprisons a woman, humiliating her until she starves to  death, and one which traces the  growing resistance of a prostitute to the demeaning work of  serving men's desires, are cleverly woven together.  Broken Mirrors is a provocative and unsettling film.  Young artists show  Starling this Wednesday  (Feb. 26), and continuing, until  March 20, the Sunshine Coast  Arts Centre once again displays  the wonderful work of young  artists. From preschools to high  schools, Sunshine Coast kids'  art will plaster the gallery walls  for a month of riotous colour  and imagination.  Assistance hanging the show  was provided by gung-ho students from Pender Harbour and  Chatelech under the able and  enthusiastic direction of teachers Wendy Simmonds and Enid  Kelly.

Long John Baldly booked  After 35 years in the music industry, Long John Baldry has played  wilh all the greats. No, that's not quite right, he created some of the  greats.  Elton John and Rod Stewart were just two of his proteges way  back when . His first album in 1971, It Ain't Easy, is now being followed up 20 years later with It Still Ain't Easy.  Baldry, along with John Mayall, is recognized as one of the fathers  of British Blues. His best known song, Don't Try to Lay No Boogie  Woogie on the King of Rock and Roll, has become a legend.  Watersyde Folke Club is proud to bring Long John Baldry to the  Coast for a concert at the Raven's Cry Theatre March 7.

Artist Paula Siefred hosted an informative evening at the  Meditation seminar  to visit Davis Bay  An introductory talk on transcendental meditation will be held at  the Bella Beach Hotel in Davis Bay, Sunday, March 1.  Sponsored by the Vancouver TM centre, the talk will explore  TM's benefits, explaining why the mental technique is practised by  some 50,000 people on the West Coast and more than three million  people worlwide as a way to relieve anxiety and stress.  According to the Vancouver centre, extensive research in the past  17 years has shown that TM benefits all areas of an individual's life:  mind, body, behaviour and environment. "Research indicates TM  meditators have warmer interpersonal relationships, less anxiety,  increased self-esteem and self-confidence, increased problem-solving  ability and greater creativity."  Proponents say TM is easily learned by people of all ages and of  any educational, cultural or religious background.

An  ability to move to music is  important. And strength is necessary to carry out elaborate  jumps in the air.  But Ihe most important quality of a figure skater isn't physical. "You have to be really  confident about yourself," says  12-year-old Lee-Ann Sheel, a  member of the Sunshine Coast  Figure Skating Club, who  recently came first in her category of intermediate ladies in a  Penticton skating competition.  "If you're really putting yourself down, you can't skate as  well. If I don't believe I can do  il, I can't."  Sheel, who has been skating  since she was four years old, is  one of eight skaters ranging in  age from 11 to 15, who are part  of the club's Canadian Figure  Skating Program.  "This is where the kids go to  compete and pursue it in a more  serious vein," says club president Barb Norton.  In the program, there are  three disciplines - figures, ice  dancing, and free skating - all of  which have a series of tests  which must be passed. When  skaters reach the senior test levels, they have the option of  going on to serious competition.  "That is usually determined by  the natural talent, and desire,"  says Norton. Not everybody  wants to compete, she says, and  "not everybody is a talented figure skater." Of the approximately 165,000 registered  figure skaters in Canada, only a  handful are at the top level.  In addition to natural talent,  she says "the hours required to  get there are just horrendous."  The eight girls in the club's  test-skating program usually  skate at least 10 hours a week,  including sessions at the Sechelt  Members of the  Sunshine   Coast  Figure Skating Club  practice skating at  least 111 hours , both  at the Sechelt ice  arena and with  private coaches in  Vancouver.  Jane Seyd photo  ice arena and extra coaching  which many of the girls take on  weekends in Vancouver. And at  the more senior test levels, at  least 14 hours a week are necessary. Says Norton, "It's not  something you can do for two  days and then leave for five."  Three professional coaches  'It's not  something you  can do for two  days then leave  for five.'  work with the skaters during  practice, but each girl may  spend only an hour a week with  a coach individually. For this  reason, self-discipline and  appropriate mental focus is  essential.  The emphasis in figures is on  development of basic technical  skills and balance, says Norton.  f PRECISE PAINTING & PLASTEK\  ��� All Pluses of Drywall  ��� Complete Custom Painting  ��� Fire Sa Water Damage  ���Journeyman Workmanship  Ncalt  Vance  V   8864)928             Frac Eillmilt.  886-9I99V  f COTTRELLS MARINE SERVICE  CanteM 2>ztio�� jCtt.  \_    673 Payne Rd,, Qlbsohs 886-3101   J  EsclialwDMlinailplothi  Sunshine Com! tor  Yamaha  Outboards.

"Every part of their body has lo  be in a certain place at a certain  time."  In freeskating, spins, jumps  and footwork elements are all  put together in a routine, in  which the emphasis is on artistic expression and moving to  the music, as well as the technical details. "You have to be an  actress or an actor to get out  there," says Norton, "because  you're putting on a show."  Lately, there has been an  increasing emphasis on jumps  in competition, she says, which  in a way is "too bad" because  "skating is a beautiful art in  itself."  In all skating disciplines,  agility, flexibility, good balance  and a lot of leg strength are  required.  Colleen Norton, another  member of the test-skating program, says skating requires  absolute concentration because  "so many tilings can go wrong."  A successful jump or spin can  depend on everything from how  fast a skater is going to how  sharp her skates are.  During their years of practice  and competition, skaters can  also be subject to injuries, ranging from concussions from  falling on the ice to stitches  made necessary by wayward  skate blades.  As Kurt Browning could certainly testify, competition can  also be "nerve wracking," says  Sheel, who says that over the  years she's fallen many times in  her competitive routines. "You  just have to get back up and  continue," she says.  And while Colleen Norton  says she watches the Olympic  competitions with a critical eye  to technique, her mother Barb  says she has an insider's appreciation of the work it's taken to  get to that level. "I know what  has gone into it to put on a performance I'm seeing."  Local skaters  perform well in  Penticton meet  Members of the Sunshine  Coast Figure Skating Club  recently participated in the Ogo-  pogo skating competition in  Penticton held Feb. 6 to 9.

Starting the game on time and with both sides  keen, the referee was in for a tough run keeping up  to the ball.  Enjoying a side that actually had bodies in iheir  proper positions and practicing together made a  world of difference lo the Gibsons squad's performance this day. They had to be at their toughest  defensively and creative on offence. The Scribes  having a spattering of Kiwis (not the fruit) in their  lineup kept the pace lively and entertaining. The  fans realized they came to a contest and voiced  their encouragement throughout.  A real reversal of last week, the forwards committing to the loose play and the backs using each  and everyone with plays involving all, even Cana-  on and an exciting time for the remainder of the  match. Digging in and not being penetrated, the  local boys gained a fine hard-loughl victory at the  final whistle. Scribes 0, Pigs 3. Good work men!!  Having many a Kiwi in their lineup, the mandatory boom run made for a lol of fun at the clubhouse afterwards.  This group of Pigs as with their past comrades  definitely know how to host the opposition, mind  you giving the boat-race away does not sit well,  but was fun just the same.

Before the start of a game, it  is a good idea to do some  stretching exercises. These loosening up exercises should  involve the hamstrings, lower  back, hands and wrists.  A common exercise used to  loosen up all these muscles at  one time is to place the broom  in both hands, then with hands  spread slightly apart and  extended in front of your body,  ease yourself along the ice surface first stretching one leg,  then the other. Many curlers follow this up with several slides  down the ice without a rock.  Curling is basically made up  of two types of shots, the draw  and the knockout. Try these  drills to improve your shotmak-  ing.  For your takeout game, place  four stones in a parallel line to  the tee line. Place one stone on  each inside corner of the eight  fool and a stone on each inside  comer of the button. If you are  shooting as partners, shoot two  stones each at the four rocks,  first using the in-turn and then  the out-turn. Score three points  for a hit and stick, two for a hit  and roll and one point for a hit  and roll out.  For your draw game, try this  drill. Throw two in-tums toward  the button and then two outturns. If you reach the button,  score four points, if you reach  the four foot circle, score three,  if you reach the eight foot, score  two and the 12 foot, score one  point.

BLANKET CLASSIFIED  An advertising "Best Buy I*  5 YEARS AGO  Sechelt Municipal District/is  is one step closer to having a  recreation/office complex in the  downtown area. At last week's  council meeting Mayor Bud  Koch announced that the  municipality has put a $3,000  deposit on 7.88 acres of land  adjacent to the Trail Bay Mall.  The $5,000 will lock-in the  price on the parcel for six  months while council decides  whether there are enough government agencies interested in  renting office space to make the  entire complex financially  viable.  10 YEARS AGO  "An oil tank farm has been a  dream here on the Coast for a  long time. It looks now that we  may be getting somewhere,"  Gibsons Alderman Larry  Labonte presented a tank farm  proposal to the regional board  last week.  The tank farm proposal has  been spurted on by the desire of  Gibsons Village to remove the  potentially dangerous and  unsightly Shell Oil bulk storage  tanks out of lower Gibsons.  The proposal is to purchase  22 acres of waterfront in West  Howe Sound and provide sites  for the storage of petroleum  products of the four companies  distributing on the Sunshine  Coast: Esso, located at Hopkins  Landing; Shell Oil, located in  lower Gibsons; Standard Oil,  Davis Bay; and Gulf Oil, Pender Harbour.  15YE/VRSAGO  The annual general meeting  of the Sunshine Coast Community Services Society held in  Sechell on Thursday, Feb. 17,  learned that after the usual slow  period following the Christmas  season the minibus service is  now carrying a full complement  of passengers on most days.  For those of you who are  interested in numbers, the service carried 774 passengers during the month of January and  the minibus travelled 3348  miles.  25 YEARS AGO  The Provincial Home Acquisition Grant Act was introduced  by the Minister of Finance in  the provincial legislature on  Feb. 3 and the Honourable  Isabel Dawson has informed the  Coast News that she will be  pleased to follow up personal  enquiries respecting this grant.  The main features of the bill  are: It is retrocative to April 1,  1966. which means that a person can qualify for the grant for  a home acquired since that date.  35 YEARS AGO  Sechelt's oldest taxi business, French's, has been sold to  Harry Sawyer, a partner. Frank  French started his taxi business  in 1930 and for some years held  the only taxi licence in that  area. Roads were extremely elementary in those days and at  one time there was none to Pender Harbour. Patients who  wished transportation were  taken part way by French's taxi  and transferred to rowboats.  Twice during such trips, the  stork caught up to the taxi.  45 YEARS AGO  Eight-year-old Barry Davis  was seriously injured on Feb. 13  when he chopped his arm while  cutting kindling. The sharp  hatchet he was using severed an  artery and two tendons in his  arm. Doctor A. lnglis attended  the lad after he arrived at Gibsons Landing which was some  hours after the accident  occurred..

Following a motion passed  in May last year, the regional  district pkuis lo close tile Pender  Harbour dump in favour ol a  transfer station on the site.  Oatbege would then be trucked  to the Sechelt landfill  According to a report by  Seig LehmatUt, superintendent  Of public workt, problems with  the current Pender Harbour  landfill include leaehate. inadequate cover material at the site.  Unauthorized burning by residents, and a lack of waste separation required by the  environment ministry.  In addition, the landfill is  currently being used lor a  greater volume of waste than is  allowed under its permit, In  order to continue accepting present levels of garbage, lire landfill would have to be upgraded.  which would require that it  operate as a controlled site with  an attendant and separation of  waste before disposal.  Rather than do that, the  regional district wanls lo build a  transfer station, which ii says is  a more economical and environmentally sound option.  For some residents m Pender  Harbour lhat day can'l come  fast enough. For others, the  move to a transfer station represents the start of a reduction of  service to Area A. which  doesn't take into account ihe  further environmental problems  Which may resull from the  move  And both groups say that  cost is certainly an issue.  For Wend) Milner and Linda  Oobel, who live on properties  next to the dump, the main concern is environmental "My big  concern is the leaehate," says  Milner "We both have wells,"  she says, "and we don't know  how it's affecting our water."  Recent tests conducted at the  dump have not yet come back  from the lab in Vancouver, but  "I've seen the pictures the  Wendy Milner has concerns over the quality of her water.  Jane Seyd photo  Landfill, transfer  costs compared  Whether the regional district builds a transfer station or revamps  the Pender landfill, it's going to cost money. The issue is how much.  According to Seig Lehmann, public works superintendent for the  regional district, capital costs to build a transfer station are estimated  at $125,000 Of that, $20,000 will likely be paid the Ministry of Environment. In addition, an estimated cost of between $40,000 and  $50,000 would be required for environmental clean-up of the existing  landfill. The yearly cost of operating the station, including the cost of  an attendant, the contract to haul garbage to Sechelt and a share of  contributing to the Sechelt landfill could run from approximately  $73,000 to $134,000, depending on the days and hours of operation.  In comparison, the cost of upgrading the existing Pender Harbour  landfill to standards required for the current volume of garbage would  be approximately $975,000, including preliminary studies. The dump  would then cost between $109,000 to $136,000 per year to operate on  three or five days a week, including the cost of a contractor, attendant, and extra fill required. (Figures for seven-day operation are not  currently available). The site would then have a life sp-.n of between  20 and 25 years.  Both the transfer station and an upgraded landfill would be controlled sites with attendants, separation of garbage, and certain days  and hours of operation Tipping fees for special materials such as hazardous waste or large pieces of lumber would likely apply to both a  transfer station or an upgraded landfill, said Lehmann.  As far as he is aware, "I don't think anyone has a master plan of  combining the landfills," said Lehmann, although "it's certainly more  expensive to operate smaller sites than one regional site."

Unauthorized burning at the  dump has also been a problem,  says Milner, who is concerned  about both the pollutants  released with bunting, and the  possibility of an unauthorized  fire getting oul of control.  Both Milner and Gobel say  lor too long the dump has been  regarded as an "out of sight, out  ol mind" situation Says Milner,  "It's crazy lo think the government will pay lo open another  big hole and throw our garbage  in the ground."  But another group of residents in Pender Harbour say  trucking garbage to the Sechelt  landfill is not necessarily a huge  environmental improvement.  And they worry thai with the  transfer station, service to the  area will gradually be reduced,  which will eventually result in  more immediate problems.  "I'm not totally committed to  the dump as it is," says Billy  Griffith, who is associated with  a recently formed Committe for  Responsible Waste Manage  ment. "And I don't have any  great concern about the transfer  station being there - as long as  it's open seven days a week, it  lakes everything the dump takes  now and there's no extra  charges involved."  But if restricted limes, inadequate container space or escalating tipping fees begin to be  issues, as some people are  afraid, residents will likely stop  using the transfer station, says  Griffith And that could spawn  backroad dumping throughout  the community.  Upgrading the present site or  finding another site may be better alternatives, which would  ensure service lo Area A continues in the future, says Griffith.  But Area A director Gordon  Wilson said a transfer station in  Pender Harbour will provide  "the exact same opportunity for  disposal as if we opened an  alternate sile."  Said Wilson, "1 find il inconceivable that in 1992 I'm living  in a community where they  could actively be arguing for  open pit burial of garbage."
