 F  ^Sislative Library  Parliament BuildingS  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  ^m  ���   ���  ���I  jears fish waste concerns  by Nancy Argyle  also  A crowd of more than 30  people filled the Sunshine Coast  Regional District boardroom  November 23 for a public  forum regarding foreshore concerns. The greatest concern was  removal of dead fish from fish  farms.  The forum, which was  organized by the Foreshore Advisory Task Force, allowed the  public the opportunity to voice  concerns and provide input to  the task force.  Representatives from the  ministries of agriculture and  forests were on hand to answer  questions from the public. Task  force   members   were  available for questioning.  Most of the questions asked  concerned fish farm operations  and the removal of dead fish  (morts).  "I consider fish farms to be  the greatest threat to the  foreshore with fish wastes causing tremendous contamination," said Hans Penner, a  Roberts Creek resident.  "The fish farms are occupying previously unpolluted water  but they are quickly destroying  this beautiful coast," Penner  said.  "Do we want these animal  feed lots? Do we even want to  eat fish that have been fed drugs  to help them survive in an unnatural environment?"  According to Michael Coon,  manager of aquaculture for the  ministry of agriculture, many of  the drugs used on farm fish  have not been approved.  A member of the Sechelt Indian Band also made an impassioned plea for the return of  clean waters, noting that people  are no longer able to dig clams  and oysters, due to pollution, in  some areas.  "Let's fix this so we can go  back to digging clams and  oysters once again," he said, to  much applause from the crowd.  Oldtime residents also expressed concern over recent  changes they had noticed in  regard to plant and marine life.  Mort disposal was also high  on the priority list of concerns.  Teri Dawe of the Ocean  Resource Conservation  Association, said, "We have a  serious problem in controlling  mort disposal at the dump.  Even though the dumpers are  being charged a fee to use the  dump, there are a number of  them that are not paying.  "The taxpayer ends up subsidizing the disposal of morts  and 1 don't think we should be  paying for this fish farm waste.  "I believe we should not  allow them to use the dump  unless they pay for it," he added.  Gordon Wilson, chairman of  the task force, agreed that the  region is facing a crisis situation  with waste management, in particular, mort disposal.  "The life expectancy of our  landfill site is rapidly being  reduced. We may have only five  years left at this site due to the  volume of morts being disposed  there, Wilson said.  "The difficulty in dealing  with aquaculture problems is  that the province has no regulations to control it. In Alaska,  any fish farm wanting to  operate must first show that an  environmental impact study has  been done before they are  granted approval.  "They  must  also  have  a  satisfactory waste management  plan," he added.  One fish farm owner in attendance at the forum said he  didn't know what all the fuss  was about. The task force was  quick to point out many incidents had been reported concerning the disposal of morts.  "There are diseased fish being chucked over the edge of net  pens and buried off the dump  site. We have even heard of  people finding garbage bags of  morts on the roadsid'.," said  Wilson.  When questioned as to the  legitimacy of the reports, the  audience learned that .15 cases  regarding fish farm violations  were under investigation.

Only fellow New Democrat  David Barrett, former premier,  by about 200 votes had a larger  margin in B.C. in the newly-  created riding of Esquimalt-  Juan de Fuca.  In third place in the B.C. win-  ners' circle was Ray Skelly's  brother Robert in Comox/  Alberni. (-  , ���    *s  The fl.S percent voter turnout that elected Ray Skelly  again here in North Island/-  Powell River constituency was  slightly better than the 76.7 percent that voted in 1984. Local  favourite Skelly actually won a  majority, taking SI percent of  the vote.  Skelly had 22,103 votes to  runner-up PC candidate Michel  Rabu's 10,653 and third place  candidate Liberal Allan War-  nke's 6,945.  The other five local candidates garnered relatively few  votes. John Krell of the Christian Heritage Party led the  group with 1,521 votes.  Dodd Pellant of the Western  Reform Party had 718 votes,  Michael Conway-Brown of the  Green Party 519, Philip Hicks  of the Rhinoceros Party 299.  Nicholas Chemoff of the Communist Party was last with 121  votes, according to the final tally of Returning Officer, Shirley  Fell.  It was quite a night for the  V3SES__JUBmX%  local party workers. As the  voting drew to a close Monday  night at 8 o'clock there was  gloom and doom in the Liberal  headquarters in Sechelt.  Reports of the Progressive  Conservative majority recorded  to the east across the nation had  already arrived by telephone.  The three workers present were  glum, but not so glum as they  would be later when the local  results came in.  "They've won!" was the simple comment of a Grit poll  worker.  At the New Democratic headquarters  around  the  corner,  Rate change  for Pender  B.C. Tel has applied to change Pender Harbour's rate  group status which, if allowed, will increase the residence  phone line rental by about 60 cents, from $8.55 to $9.15.  As well, an individual business line could see a hike of  $2.55, from $23.65 to $26.20.  The application is based on an increase in access lines during the months of September and October which has pushed  the Pender Harbour exchange into the next rate group.  If approved, the increases would become effective January  15, 1989.  Effluent concern  A number of Halfmoon Bay residents are concerned about  the possibility of sewage effluent being dumped into Brooks  Cove.  The residents recently became aware of a permit application from a landowner and have voiced their objections to the  minister of environment.  In a letter from one resident, she noted that there has  already been enough problems with the neighbourhood  sewage system and the developer has been charged with  polluting the environment.  The letter goes on to state, "recently a fish we caught was  so rotten with cancer that the local fisheries inspector confiscated it to send away for analysis."

At the Tory Sechelt headquarters almost next door, they  were happy and definite. "It's a  majority PC government of 151  elected," declared one of the  three poll workers present.  The four workers at the NDP  headquarters still had hope in  their eyes. They appeared pretty  sure their man was going to at  least win for them here at North  Island/Powell River.  The result of the first poll  came in. There were worried  looks.  It was three votes for Skelly,  three votes for Warnke and  none for anybody else. It was  the long-term care poll at the  hospital.  The faces were no less worried as the results came in for  the next poll, Wakefield West,  with 29 for Skelly and 28 each  for Rabu and Warnke. The  faces grew a little happier with  Please turn to page 15  Hospital  waste site  needed  by Nancy Argyle  The provincial government  has issued a directive to all  municipalities and regional  districts to select a site in or near  their communities that could be  used for the disposal of small  quantities of waste chemicals. A  site is to be sought here on the  Sunshine Coast.  The waste chemicals are '  generated by insitutions such as  hospitals, schools and community colleges. Typically, they  are small quantities of leftover  or unused laboratory reagents  such as ether, perchloric acid  and picric acid.  Normally, they do not present a safety hazard. But when  ihey have aged over a number  of years, they deteriorate and  may become unstable.  In B.C., they are routinely  disposed of by the RCMP Explosive Disposal Unit at isolated  sites a short distance away from  the community, since the  chemicals are potentially shock  sensitive.  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District November 24 decided to  selecte a site as directed and  have appointed their works  superintendent as a contact person.  However, during discussion  at the regular board meeting of  November 24, it was suggested  and agreed that the site should  be used for small quantities only.  "We want to keep an eye on  the situation so that we don't  suddenly discover that we have  a toxic waste site on our  hands," said Director Jim  Gurney.  Serving the Sunshine Cpast since 1945  i_t-- ~ - 2. Coast News, November 28,1988  Comment  Safe Driving Week  in Canada  It's Safe Driving Week in Canada December l lo 7 and  the Sunshine Coast has lots to work on when it comes lo  driving safety, according to Constable Les Leyh of the  Royal Canadian Mounted Police highway patrol. The  theme for the week is 'The Great Canadian Challenge', according to the Canada Safety Council.  Over 85 percent of all collisions could be avoided by  some action on the part of the driver involved, says the  Safety Council in a National Driving Quiz pamphlet  prepared as a leading feature of the 'challenge' to drivers  for Safety Week.  Drivers are challenged to participate in the quiz to  review Iheir knowledge of the rules of the road and of  defensive driving techniques. The second half of the  challenge is to drive fatality free during Safety Week.  The Sunshine Coasl highway patrol is going to help. It's  starting its holiday season special prevention program  December I, with road blocks, breath tests, seatbelt and  driver checks, says Constable Leyh. Al the end of Safety  Week, the RCMP highway patrollers start Operation  Counter-Attack to fight drinking and driving during the  Christmas and New Year's season.  Constable Leyh says people on the Sunshine Coast have  to take out special liquor permits for season parties. "We  know where they are and we'll be there to meet them when  they leave," warns Leyh.  Police concerns are warranled. There were six Sunshine  Coast fatalities so far this year, four in Sechelt and two at  Gibsons. A lot of these have involved alcohol, says Leyh.  Two fatalities in October involved both alcohol and  seatbelts. There likely wouldn't have been deaths if  seatbells were worn.  Local drivers need to watch more carefully for black ice  and for hazards on the Rat Portage Hill where there is the  new 'pull-out' at this long incline between Roberts Creek  and Davis Bay, he says.  "Each year more than 4,000 Canadians die in traffic  related accidents, many more are injured, and millions of  dollars are spent. Society has come to accept these figures  as unavoidable and part of everyday life.  "Yet there are effective, simple methods which  motorists can use to significantly reduce the number and  severity of traffic collisions. Don't drink and drive, wear  your seatbells, use low beam headlights during the day and  always be prepared to yield. These are ways in which each  of us can contribute to improving highway safety," says  the Canada Safety Council.  .trom the filet of the COAST NEWS  5 YEARS AGO  Two Canadian champion tennis players, Robert  Betlaues and Josef Brabenec, were to play an exhibition  match Saturday at the Wakefield Tennis Club in West  Sechelt. The best-of-three match was to take place in  the club's new tennis bubble.  November had already broken all records as the wettest ever on record. The previous 1980 record of almost  12 inches had already been passed.  Reorganization of the tie-up areas at Gibsons Wharf  was begun in an effort to provide satisfactory separate  mooring areas for commercial and pleasure boats.  St. Andrew's Anglican Church In Pender Harbour,  now become debt free, was to be consecrated Sunday  to the perpetual worship ot God. To officiate was The  Most Reverend Douglas Hambridge, archbishop of the  Anglican New Westminster Diocese.  10 YEARS AGO  Marj Leslie is retiring from the Gibsons post office.  She started working there in 1952. There was a retirement dinner given in her honour at Mr. Mike's by her coworkers.  John Kavanagh was voted in as the next president of  the B.C. Neighbourhood Pub Association.  20 YEARS AGO  The Gallery Shop at Sechelt, the arts council's  showcase for crafts and paintings, has a special  Christmas display of work by Sunshine Coast artists  who include Irene Anderson, Doris Crowston, Jo Mlchle,  Eleanor Ormrod, Trudy Small and Kay Wells.  Former Elphinstone student, Vincent D. Zral, has  been honoured for academic excellence at the Southern  Alberta Institute of Technology.  30 YEARS AGO  An excerpt from an open letter to the Board of Trade,  "Gentlemen, I have just made a terrible discovery ��� we  do not exist!  "I have been advised by officials In the court house in  Vancouver on two different occasions, In all solemnity,  sincerity and apparent good faith, that the Sunshine  Coast Highway does not exist."  40 YEARS AGO  Business arising out of the Gibsons PTA meeting Included a report by Mr. Trueman on the dental clinic we  had been hoping for.

"What about a conversation for the record in these  momentous political times?"  Jake and I were sequestered,  as is our wont, around his  woodstove in his cabin down  the beach from where I live. The  surly November blasts were  pounding at the window,  lashing it with the windblown  spray of rain.  Before us was the chess  board, the ostensible reason for  the visit. But I thought my old  friend might be cajoled into  some public comment on the  state of the nation.  "Listen," said Jake, "you  know how I feel about you and  your damn newspaper.  Remember, they poisoned  Socrates for trying to get people  to think.  "Every time 1 consent to let  you quote me for public consumption, I can't get wood in or  prepare my garden without being engaged in hot debate with  some of my neighbours who see  my observations as seditious at  best. Voltaire counselled that we  should cultivate our own  gardens if we would live serenely and at my age I am disinclined to rectify the follies of  mankind, or man unkind as the  poet had it."  "I know all that, but surely  you could let us have a few  observations in the light of what  some think is the most important election in the history of  Canada?"  "God knows," said Jake,  "there's been enough empty  blather about the whole thing as  it is. I turned on the election  coverage for five minutes on  election night, learned the  results, then realized that I  couldn't stomach the breathless  banalities being brandished verbally over the airwaves in the  name of analysis.  "But I'll give you a couple of  observations, for what they are  worth and I'll tell my  neighbours that you are picking  someone else's brains to fill  your columns these days.  They're already aware that you  change the name to protect the  outspoken and the disgruntled."  "Fire away, Jake."  "Well, mind you, I have no  intention of making a habit of  this, but here goes.  "In the first place, the single  most chilling line 1 read about  the whole damn circus was in  the Globe and Mail. Somebody,  1 forget who, observed on the  subject of the environment that  if the intention was to declare  war on the planet in these days  of ozone layer damage, you  could hardly do it better than by  subsidizing oil development.  "Scientists are telling us as  clearly as they know how that  the use of fossil fuels is endangering life itself in the long  run, yet this wonderful free  trade deal that we are saddled  with, specifically allows Canada  to subsidize massively heavy oil  sands development.  "It would appear to me that  the money would be better spent  in researching alternate sources  of fuel before the damage to the  atmosphere is irreversible. But  there were 26 seats in Alberta  and not one of the major  political parties even raised the  issue.  "The problem is, and it is a  problem which carries in it the  seeds of our destruction, that  the system is being run by those  who propose short term  pleasure. You can't get elected  in this country unless you carry  a basket of goodies from coast  to coast, whether the goodies  can be paid for or not.  "Unless and until the electorate gets serious and demands  politicians who will behave with  integrity and responsibility with  the public purse, we are going to  hell in a handcart. Given the  fact that most voters are taking  their   information   from   the  mindless pap served up as news  on television, I am not sanguine  that a responsible and alerted  electorate is within our  capabilities.  "Meanwhile the problems  that are beginning to multiply  with the envelope of air that  makes life possible remain  essentially unaddressed and the  barons of greed are in command.  "Now let's turn our attention  from the follies of man, enduring and eternal, and let us in the  time remaining to us play a little  chess."  And so we did.  Farewell  1I/HENI lie where shades of darkness  r' Shall no more assail mine eyes,  Nor the rain make lamentation  When the wind sighs;  How will fare the world whose wonder  Was the very proof of me?  Memory fades, must the remembered  Perishing be?  Oh, when this my dust surrenders  Hand, foot, lip, to dust again,  May these loved and loving faces  Please other men!  May the rusting harvest hedgerow  Still Ihe Traveller's Joy entwine,  And as happy children gather  Posies once mine.  Look thy last on all things lovely  Every hour. Let no night  Seal thy sense in deathly slumber  Till to delight  Thou have paid thy utmost blessing;  Since that all things thou wouldst praise  Beauty took from those who loved them  In other days.  Walter de la Mare  December 1st  World Aids Day marked  Many people in smaller towns  think that AIDS is a big-city  problem, something they don't  have to worry about. But AIDS  is wherever people are.  When people travel between  big cities and smaller towns,  AIDS travels too.  AIDS is an abbreviation of  Acquired Immune Deficiency  Syndrom. It is caused by a virus  called HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus), which attacked and destroys the body's  natural defences.  People with AIDS can easily  get rare types of cancer,  pneumonia and infection. Then  they become ill and die���not  from AIDS, but from these  secondary diseases that their  bodies are unable to resist.  Certain people���for example,  those who have casual sexual  relationships or who use  drugs���risk getting AIDS more  often that others. Every time  people with AIDS share body  fluids (semen and vaginal fluids)  while practising unsafe sex, or  share an intravenous needle  while using drugs, they share  the AIDS virus too.  Nowhere is safe from AIDS.  From Peace River country to  Richmond, from Prince Rupert  to Cranbrook, the cases of  AIDS continue to be reported.  There is no cure for AIDS.  There is no vaccine against it.  And the number of people who  have it is growing.  In 1983, there were seven  cases of AIDS reported in B.C.  Each year since then, the  number of reports of new cases  has increased significantly.  In 1986, 105 new cases were  reported. This year, there were  129 new cases as of November  10.  By the time you read this,  there will be at least 10 more  new cases. By December 31, the  total B.C. figure for 1988 will  be close to 150.  By November 10, the total  number of reported cases of  AIDS in B.C. was 446. By that  time, 242 people���more than  half of those diagnosed with the  disease since 1983���have died.  The good news is that the risk  of becoming infected by  transfusions of blood or blood  products is extremely low  because strict testing procedures  have been in place for all blood  donations since November,  1985.  In the early stages of infection, people carrying the AIDS  virus in their bodies usually look  and feel normal. This 'carrier  state' may last for months or  years without noticeable effect.  But anyone who is infected���even a healthy carrier���can pass the virus on to  others.  Thousands of people have  been tested for AIDS antibodies. Antibodies are the  substance the body forms to  fight the virus.  By the end of December,  1987, it was estimated that between 6000 and 10,000 people in  B.C. were infected with the  AIDS virus.  Not everyone who tests  positive for the virus will  develop the disease. But many  of them will, sometimes after as  long as five or seven years.  Most of these people show no  symptoms...but all are capable  of infecting others.  Most important, the fact of  AIDS is changing. Once found  only in homosexual men, the  disease is spreading, through  bisexual men and intravenous  drug users, to heterosexual men  and women. Most tragic of all  are the innocent victims of  AIDS���babies born to mothers  with the disease.  Since there is no cure for  AIDS and no vaccine against it,  the only defence is through  education���arming yourself  with knowledge about the  disease and how it can be avoided. Because you can protect  yourself.  If you practise safe sex and  don't share needles, chances are  you won't get AIDS.  The World Health Organization has proclaimed December 1  "World AIDS Day". Plan to  talk about AIDS on that day, to  your partners, your friends,  your families and your children.  Take responsibility for your  own health and safety, because  when it comes right down to it,  the only person who can save  you from AIDS is you. Be  responsible���for life.

Dickson's letter  accusing NDP supporters of  "mindless talking". First he accuses J.C. Stuart of being some  kind of Cretin who never got  beyond grade one in school  because he had never voted until  he was 33.  Mr. Stuart could have been  interested in other things,  possibly sports, or even bird  watching. An old friend of  mine, a retired clergyman,  although he knows the Holy Bible by heart, knows little about  politics.  According to Mr. Dickson, I  am a "typical example of a  pseudo-socialist". Yes, I do  drive around in a Japanese car  but it didn't cost $30,000.  It is an ancient Honda hatchback. I have had it so long I  have forgotten what I paid for  it.  It is eaten by rust. I am in  constant fear the left rear  fender, which is held on with  wire, will drop off before I get  home. None of my NDP friends  drive $30,000 cars.  No, I don't go on vacations  to Europe, Hawaii, nor  anywhere else, but I see no  reason why NDP supporters  should not do so.  I know several who work  hard and deserve a vacation  abroad if they wish. Some have  relatives in other parts of the  globe.  As for that "half-baked  philosophy" Mr. Dickson  sneers at, I have believed in it  for a great many years. This  year I was given the 1988 Appreciation Award because of my  support of the NDP for more  than 30 years.  Yes, as Mr. Dickson says, we  are "perennial losers".  Mulroney is back in power and  we have still to fight his government's plan to spend billions of  our tax dollars on nuclear submarines while large numbers of  the children of our unemployed  are hungry and cold.  In the federal election the  NDP in B.C. captured 19 seats  out of the 32 which were  formerly Conservative. This  defection is explained by the  anger felt by many people about  the $100,000 severance pay  given by Vander Zalm to David  Poole, his former secretary.  How sad it is for Mr.  Dickson to have to go on living  in such an obnoxious political  climate as we have in B.C.  I share Jim Tyner's concern  about the deficit. But where is  the money going which should  be paying our national debt?  Is it being taken out of the  country by foreign investors  who pillage our natural  resources, fight our trade  unions and take their profits  elsewhere? Canada used to have  a Foreign Investment Review  Agency which judged the  amount and nature of foreign  investment desirable in our  country.  We do not have this protection anymore because Brian  Mulroney's government has  discarded it. Now our resources  are up for sale to any foreign  financier out to make an easy  dollar.  We poor citizens must grin  and bear it while our taxes rise,  and we must pay more for  everythng we buy.  Our deficit, however, is only  peanuts compared with that run  up by the Reagan administration in the U.S. According to  figures in the latest issue of The  Manchester Guardian it is more  than twice the size of all  previous administrations from  Eisenhower to Carter. It is  measured in trillions of dollars.  Here in Canada the only consolation we can have is that  Brian Mulroney will have to  face the consequences of his  disastrous economic policies in  his second term. Blarney and  play acting will not rescue him  from his accusers in the court of  outraged public opinion.  Isabel Ralph  Coast News, November 28,1988            3.

I recently attended a two-day  workshop on community  development, organized by the  Union Board of Health, where  we discussed problems, and attempted to find some solutions.  It was the unanimous feeling  of the Sunshine Coast group  that our primary problem is  transportation in all its aspects.  We felt that the combination of  the restrictive access by ferry,  specifically the limited ferry  schedule, and the narrow winding roads creating congestion  and hazardous conditions, were  all serious factors.  Since the population of the  Sunshine Coast is spread over  such a wide area, better roads  and ferries are required for the  many people who need to go to  Vancouver for medical appointments with specialists, to visit  friends in hospital, or on other  business.  During the Expo summer,  hourly ferries were allotted to  us, using smaller vessels. This is  a growing community, particularly with the Port Mellon  expansion, and the ferry situation is a frustrating obstacle to  many people.  An equally large problem is  our bypass, which has been  Thank you all  Editor:  The executive of Area E's  Elphinstone Electors' Association wish to thank all those  enthusiastic and hardy people  who braved the elements and attended the official opening of  Whispering Firs Regional Park.

Gibsons  deals with  store  proposal  by Harold Blaine  A revised plan for the Park  Centre development and the  proposed new Saan Store on  Highway 101 in Gibsons was  recommended in town council  commit tee-of-the-whole,  November 22.  Town Planner Rob Buchan  told council the proposal now is  to subdivide the property so the  land for the store can be sold to  Saan. The development plan for  the property isn't changed by  the division, Buchan said, only  the type of tenure.  The remainder of the planned  plaza will be additional commercial leased space as before,  with a gas bar at the east end.  The Curling Club and the  new development will share the  existing access to the highway  and also share the parking areas  as previously agreed. The Curling Club site is town owned.  The plans and zoning are approved by the highways  minister. Third and final  reading for the project was  recommended to the next  meeting of council.  There is no traffic access  whatever from the development  to Davis Drive, it was said.  The Saan Store development  proposals have nothing to do  with the recent rezoning procedures for the Art Giesbrecht  property nearby on the north  side of the highway. This property November 14 was incorrectly reported in this  newspaper as a competing site  for the Saan Store. The Coast  News apologizes for the error.  The Giesbrecht property went  before town council November  15 as Bylaw 555-9 for third and  final reading on a rezoning.

Ltd. recently.  "We are working on several  fronts todeul with these concerns."  said company president Mr. Bill  Hughes who indicated that discussions have laken place wiih  Highways and Transportation and  B.C. Ferries. The company is  also exploring alternative means  ot moving people and supplies  from Ihe lower mainland lo Port  Mellon lo relieve ihe pressure on  public facilities.  Environmentally, the mill is  currently permitted io operate ai  Ihe provincial Level B air emission standard, which il is doing. It  will improve lo Level A by June  30. 1991 with ihe insinuation of  new technology, ll will also conform io Level A effluent standards by June 30. 1991.  When asked how they generally fell aboul ihe Porl Mellon  expansion. 4X (79'/,) slated lhal  ihey accepled it. X (IV/r) were  undecided and 2 IVA) were opposed. Many provided additional  commenls. such as: "strongly  support il". "more of Ihe same"  etc.  Potential benefits seen from  ihe expansion rated important by  those replying were: fewer people-  on U.I.C. and welfare. 31; short-  term economic boost. 19; more  facilities and services. IX. Olhers  noted the value of more residents  moving in. more tourists and a  morale boosi for the communily.  Among Ihe potential negative  issues rated important were: ferry  traffic. 38; environmental concerns. 38; highway iraffic, 37;  more  crime,   lawlessness  and  stress. 27; higher cost of living.  26: housing cost and shortage. 25..  Geographically. 37 of the respondents live in Gibsons, and IX  in olher areas of ihe SCRD. Some  LS classify themselves as retired  or semi-retired: 22 as involved in  business or tourism; 6 as environmentalists: 2 usmillemployces or  families: 13 as olher resident  families and 2 as olher.  While 29 of the replies came  from the coupon in the recent  newspaper advertisement, a further 32 were completed al the  open house held ai the United  Church Hall in Gibsons on September 2X. This evenl intruded  over 75 people lo talk lo company  president Mr. Bill Hughes, construclion manager Mr. Chuck  Connor and olher stuff aboul Ihe  projeel.  Ten lenders of various groups  and organizations mel in a planning workshop held al Ihe Sunshine Lodge in Gibsons on Saturday, Oclober 110 review the project and the public response 10 il lo  dale. Among the topics of particular interest lo the participants  were the construclion workforce  and their accommodation, environmental concerns, impact on  communily housing and ihe transportation of workers and materials. Anolher concern was ihe  impact on the business communily especially when Ihe construction force leaves at the end of the  project.  The newspaper advertisement,  open house and planning workshop are Ihe lirsl phase in an ongoing program lo predict and deal  wiih the social impacts of Ihe  consiruction phase of ihe Porl  Mellon expansion project on  Gibsons and area. Anyone wiih  quesiions or commenls aboul Ihe  program is welcome lo contacl  Ms. Sharon McCarthy by calling  Ihe mill at 884-5223 and leaving a  message.  Gibsons in 1991  Without the Expansion  What would Gibsons be like  in I99I if the Port Mellon Expansion did nol lake place'.' From a  rev iewof communily and regional  official plans, the following developments were expected by the  planners and the communily leaders ihey worked wiih in preparing  Ihese plans.  ��� many of Ihe irends noled above  'for 1981- i 986 would continue,  for example, more single person households, some decline  in ihe number of school aged  children, a more educated adull  population, some increases in  real income per person, growth  in ihe service industries and  increases in the seniors population.  ��� ihe total adult population is  likely lo grow substantially  from in-migralion based on both  the pressure on land in the  Lower Mainland and Ihe combination of natural uliriietions  and reasonable housing and  transportation costs, The absence of urban congestion,  crime and pollution provide  additional incentives.  ��� a recent independent waste  managemeni study projected a  population for Gibsons and  Areas E and F of some 10,500  in about Ihe year 2000: the  current population of Ihis area  is some 7,600.  With the Expansion  During Ihe currenl expansion  program. Gibsons will experience Ihe growth of Ihe consiruction force lo some 1100 workers  during Ihe summer of 1990. Since  two-thirds of them are expected  lo be housed ut the two camps,  and half of the remainder are  probably already residing in Gibsons and area, only one-sixlh are  expected lo seek residence in the  Gibsons area. We will work to  ensure  that   the  community  copes well wiih this increase.  Based on currenl information,  wc expect the following annual  labour force peaks and the numbers who will seek lo live in our  area.  From a 19X6 population of  2.675. and anticipating its longlerni growih rale of 5'/r per year.  Gibsons (town) is expected lo  grow by 140 -160 people per year  Ihrough normal in-migralion lo  reach somelhing over 3.400 in  1991.  Question - What doesGibsons  and area need lo do to accommodate the additional population in  areas such as housing, education,  heallh care, transportation, recreation, policing etc. '.'  Preliminary indications are  thai the supply of residential lots  will be more lhan adequate; a new  irailer park is already under construclion,  In area elemeniary and high  schools, currenl enrollments are  significantly below the numbers  uecommodulcd in ihe peak years  of 19X1 and 19X2. This additional capacity, particularly in  Langdale area schools, should  accommodate all or mosl of the  new enrollments anticipated during Ihe construclion period.  Issues and Actions  Issue - Traffic Speed near  Langdale Elemeniary School.  Nearby residents were concerned that local traffic and mill  vehicles were exceeding the  posted speed limits.  Actions - A number of concerned individuals in ihe community decided to deal with this situation :  ��� they organized a walking protest by the school children who  made placards, carried them  along the roadside, and posted  them in the area:  ��� they contacted Mr. Jim Fogli-  etta, industrial relations manager at the mill, who circulated  a notice to all employees advising them of the complaints,  reminding them of speed limits  and asking for special care for  pedestrians in the Langdale  area;  ��� they contacted the R.C.M.P.  who are participating by issuing warnings to speeding motorists; licence numbers are  being forwarded by area residents.  Later, they they will be meeting with SCRD representatives  on this issue. They have discussed having the speed limits  changed, having crosswalks  painted and perhaps installing  flashing orange lights. These ideas  would require action by the Department of Highways and Transportation.  Issue - A Pub at the Camp  At least one person is concerned that a pub for construclion  workers at the camp, rather lhan  minimizing the need for them io  drive to hotels in the community,  will increase the number of impaired drivers, e.g. afler several  drinks at the pub, some will drive  to town lather than going to bed.  Actions - This issue is being  actively explored with representatives of the construction industry, the company, planners and  residents. Further information  will be provided when available.  Issue - Schools Seek Information about Ihe Expansion  At the planning workshop on  October I, the need to provide  information about the mill expansion to highschool and elementally school students was raised  and accepted.  Aclion - presentations were  made to the Chatelech and Elphinstone High Schools and the  Langdale Elementary School  during the week of November 14-  18, using displays which were  developed initially for the open  house held in Gibsons on Sep  lember 28.  Senior company staff answered quesiions pul by students  and teachers. Additional information was also provided on  environmental protection and the  social impact managemeni program. A reprim of the mid-September newspaper review of the  projeel was also distributed.  Issue - Construclion Impacts  on Dogpatch.  The effects of the construclion program so far and fears of  further encroachment on  Dogpatch led ihe Dunham Road  Rale-payers Association to request a meeling wiih senior mill  and projeel managers.  Action - a dozen representatives of the community met on  November 7 with Mr. Bill Hughes,  company president and Mr. Chuck  Connor, construction manager.  The latter outlined current and  planned construction activities  while the formerdeall mainly with  environmental issues.  Fears that the mill would come  considerably closer to Ihe community were dispelled, as were  olher concerns aboul the construction of a railway in the area. A  plan of Ihe proposed new mill  was shown to residents which  answered many of their questions.  Concerning traffic speeds in  ihe area, Mr. Hughes offered to  provide a sign to designate  Dogpatch as a residential area and  requesting iraffic to slow down.  Although some concerns  remained, the participants were  generally satisfied and agreed to  meel again when more information was available.  Issue - Town of Gibsons and  Company Relationship  Mayor Strom and others have  recently complained at the absence of on-going communications between the Town of Gibsons and Ihe Company.  Aclion - Mayor Strom established a special task force on  Tuesday, November I to address  possible negative aspects of the  mill's expansion. Members include Mayor Strom and council,  Ms. Jane Sorko as chairman of the  town's restructuring committee,  Mr. Ray Williston as chairman of  the town's economic strategy  committee, Mt. Utsugi of Oji  Paper Ltd., a senior representative of the Company and one from  Connor Development Services  Ltd. An early meeting of ihis group  is planned.  Gibsons is Changing  While Ihe rate of growth in  Gibson's has slowed during ihis  decade, the community expanded  at an average rale of 5f/r per year  from l957lo 19X1 -aremarkable  record! The growih in Ihe seniors  population has been considerable  wilh increasing numbers retiring  in this area.  Ferry and road Iraffic have  increased in recent years to a point  where they exceed the capacity of  currenl facilities. Communily  representations lo governmenl  authorities have already produced  some tangible results, e.g. construction is currently underway of  an additional unloading lane al  the ferry terminal.  Pulp mill odours are reportedly less noticeable in Gibsons  than ihey were, although many  people remain concerned wiih  environmental issues and keenly  await the introduction of beller  technology at Ihe mill.  Statistics Canada recently  published 19X6 dala for Gibsons  (lown); ihe following comparisons with 19X1 may be of interest:  Families - single people over  15 years are up KM; divorced  people have grown by 37'/<: single  parent families have increased  2X'/<. These figures suggest more  one-person households and a  greater need for social and recreational services.  Amongst children living ul  home. Ihose under 6 years are up  25'/i. while those 6 lo 14 years are  down by \l'7r. These changes  huvecleurimplicutionsfor schools  and social services.  Education - those with less  than Grade 9 have declined 30%,  while Ihose with university degrees have climbed by 66'/r - we  are definitely getting more knowledgeable I  Income - the average incomes  of males rose from $16.1X4 lo  $21,836 or 35%; however, the  consumer price index rose 2X'/;  during Ihis period so ihe gain in  real income is Th.  For females, average incomes  rose from $7,772 lo $10,146 or  309ft average family incomes  wenl up from $21.450 lo $30.531  or 42V,.  So despite inflation, Ihe average family is considerably beller  off than live years earlier.  Occupations - the number of  men and women in Ihe labour  force rose by 39f, wilh losses in  manufacturing, construclion and  financial industries and gains in  Ihe irade area.  Unemployment - rales rose  for men from 7.X'/r lo l2.3'/r and  for women from 11.1'/, to 17.1 c/r.  These figures have since improved  to an average unemployment rale  for men and women of X.2'/<.  Seniors - in Gibsons those 55  years of age and over rose from  2VA of ihe population in 1981 lo  26'/, in 1986. which can be compared wiih 17'/, for the province  as a whole.  Note-detailed figures, including those for the SCRD, are contained in a reporl prepared by Ms.  Sharon McCarthy which is on Ihe  Reserve Shelf of area libraries  and is available lo inlerested organizations on request. Call (he  mill ul 884-5223 and leave a  message for Ms. McCarthy.  Managing Growth  As noled briefly in our last  publication, the Company has  established a program to assess  and deal with Ihe social impacts  of Ihis expansion and consiruction program on ihe adjacent  communities. We have a particular concern wilh anticipating and  minimizing the social and economic Impacts ofthc wind-down  of the construction activity on the  affected communities.  The basic approach is first to  profile the communities involved  to obtain a basic appreciation of  them and ihen lo identify the scope  of issues which will need lo be  dealt wilh. The nexl phase is lo  projeel whut the communities will  be like after the consiruction  period, wiih and without Ihe project - we are engaged wiih ihis  work currently. Finally, we work  with  inlerested  residents and  groups lo assess how important  these various changes are and how  Ihey mighl besl be dealt with. (We  expect to work on ihese subjects  early in Ihe New Year.) On-going  monitoring throughout Ihe construction period continues so that  any needed adjustments can be  made al Ihe lime required.  The work done for this program lodale includes the preparation of social profiles of Gibsons  and ihe SCRD. which may be  inspected in area libraries, the  display advertisement in both urea  newspapers in mid-September, a  Cable 11 program on Seplember  22, an open house in Gibsons on  September 28. and a planning  workshop wilh leaders of communily groups in Gibsons on  October I. A similar cycle of  activities is planned during the  nexl monlh.  Open House  Tuesday. December 6th. 2:00 - 9:(X) p.m..  Uniied Church Hall. Glassford Road.

Coast News, November 28,1988  Kunstler and Collins  Two acclaimed  in Gibsons  LILIAN KUNSTLER  by Hal Blaine  "I want to see Gibsons grow.  I want to see planning done to  make it grow in the right direction," said Alderman Lilian  Kunstler in an interview with  the Coast News following her  re-election by acclamation last  week.  "I'm very happy at my reelection but 1 wish there had  been more interest and more  competition from other people.  I'm excited about the next two  years," she said.  "I hope within two years we  can establish the Marine Park,  even though the property was  just taken over. I'll help  wherever I can."  "I'd like to see more people  involvement in town government, particularly students.  What we build is for the future  and the young people, therefore  I'd like to see them more involved."  "I'm proud of our swimming  pool, the way it looks right  now. I appreciate the town  staff."  "We have a real good backup  staff at the office. I think that's  important."  "There have been an awful  lot of changes in Gibsons in the  last five years since I've been  here, although the long time  residents will tell you about so  much that is the same. I find  there is an enormous change,"  said the re-elected alderman.  Born in England, Kuntsler  came to Canada in the 1950's.  She and her late husband lived  in many places across Canada  and Central America.  She has two children, a  daughter in Victoria, a son and  his family in Vancouver.  Trained as a secretary, in  Vancouver, she started "a program co-ordinating travel and  education to visitors from  overseas. She was the first to  start programs for Japanese  students in Vancouver. Then  she began hosting for those  from other countries as well.  She taught English to foreign  visitors at the University of  British Columbia for VA years.  She's still working at this,  teaching Japanese ladies here  with Oji Paper.  The two year alderman came  to Gibsons five years ago  following the sudden death of  her husband while they were in  California. At first she headed  the Rick Hansen Fund here.  She helped with the schools  and is interested in working  with students. She helped at  what is now Kirkland House,  organized dances at the Old Age  Pensioners Association and  volunteered at the hospital auxiliary.  KEN COLLINS  Public transportation to  eliminate the threat to citizen  life and limb along the roads,  especially for children, and  resolution of the Gibsons boundaries expansion question; these  are the main issues seen ahead  by newly acclaimed Gibsons  Alderman Ken Collins, 44.  "If I have a single target, it's  the transportation issue. It's  essential. We've had kids  who've sacrificed their lives  along our roads.  "They've had to hitch-hike  because they had no transportation and have been abducted.  Or they were hit along the  roads.  "They've died beause they  had to ride together in cars. It's  a crime!" said the new alderman, a native of Kimberley,  B.C.  "Transportation is an  economic necessity," he said.  "The other big question is the  matter of expanding boundaries, and taking in the tax  revenue of the mill (at Port  Mellon). Investors come in and  want to take their profits out.  They don't want to put them  back into the community.  "We have a mill that is part  of the Coast, but not of the  municipality. It's a question of  how much wealth stays at home  and how much goes out.  ��: - "Peopleimhis area are going  to have to make up their minds  as to whether the community  has a right to any of that  wealth. If not, we keep the  (boundaries) status quo. If yes,  we will decide to go to the larger  community.  "It mostly depends on what  people see as their self-interest.  That's usually what motivates  people," said Collins.  "Otherwise we have a trading  area of 8000 people utilizing a  municipality of 3000 people.  We are going to have all sorts of  problems of sewers, services,  lighting, roads, etc. (infrastructure).  "There's also the question of  a large retirement community  that doesn't supply a large tax  revenue resource," said  alderman-elect Collins.  Educated in Kimberley  elementary and high schools,  Collins has taken a variety of  courses since (according to his  interests), while travelling and  working in various places including Calgary, Vancouver,  Montreal, Toronto, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. A  photographer and writer, he has  many interests including the art  of paper mache. Not a club  joiner, his wife Arline is from  Vancouver.  He's been associated with the  Gibsons area for about 10  years.  "My role isn't to create issues  or argue over issues. It's a matter of an alderman working in a  mature and responsible way to  manage the affairs of the community.

After 30 years in the business  of commercial art in Vancouver, first with James Lovick  Advertising and then in his own  firm, Nanson Graphics, Lyall is  happy to be able to turn his  talent to depicting the scenes he  has enjoyed here on the Sun-  shine.CoasL .   j  .. .; ,    .  Coast News photographer  Vern Elliott in last week's issue, 5  caught Nanson and wife, Nan  in a jovial mood at the exhibition's end standing beside two  of his paintings.  "The old barri shown in your  newspaper's photo," said Lyall,  "drew more attention than any  one of the others. Something  about old barns that folk  like...stirs up memories of past  times, I guess."  Lyall Nanson's watercolours  do portray a serene and  thoughtful atmosphere, an at  mosphere that most of us find  here on the Sunshine Coast.  Boats, the seashore, and the sea  beyond give him ample subject  matter.  "A friend suggested three  years ago that I go to a  workshop in painting being held  on Saltspring Island, and I did.  But it was not until recently 1  turned to it in a serious way."  Lyall said it was with some  diffidence he and Nan turned  their house temporarily into an  art gallery. "But it was certainly  acceptable to all those invited,  as judging from the number of  paintings they gladly took, and  the 16 commissions as well that  they made for specific scenes,  everyone enjoyed the  occasion."  CRAFTY CROWS  The Canadian geographic of  October/November has an  essay of interest to Sunshine  Coasters.  The author is Betty Keller,  well known here as a founder of  the Writers' Conference and for  her books such as Black Wolf  and On The Shady Side, Vancouver 1886-1914.  ��� FASHIONS ��� ACCESSORIES ��� YARN ��� F\BRIC  "TOT SALE"  Dec. 17th  THRIFTY'S  Tues-Sat 10-4  GIBSONS  Her title Those Crafty,  Cheeky Northwestern Crows,  indicates a topic that needs no  explaining to residents hereabouts.  When Betty tells us, however,  that these lovable large birds  leave our built-up areas for  remote woodlands from November to February, a reader  wonders if these crows have a  calendar different from ours.  This songless scavenger, the  searcher for scraps, still sits  squawking on nearby saplings  scathingly screeching his scorn  for would-be bird scientists. So  there, I may stay all winter, it  seems to say.  This crow multiplied as the  pioneer Vancouver and its garbage grew. Shooting for bounty  payments scarcely hindered the  increase in its numbers.  In the 1890's eastern  newspapers called Vancouver  'Crow City'. Each growing  season small fruit farmers and  orchardists raged helplessly  against the marauding birds.  "Not only do crows thrive,"  says Betty's article, "on  anything edible, they are also  long-lived, reaching 40 years of  age."  Any school yard, it can be  added, has its resident flock of  crows who clear the grounds of  lunches the children have not  found tasty. The crows,  however, do not pick up orange  peel or wax paper, nor do the  children.  Parents  outraged  by Rose Nicholson  Cancellation of the Core  French Program for grades 5,6  and 7 students at Cedar Grove  School produced strong reaction from parents at last week's  meeting of the District 46 Public  School Board.  Vera Rottluff, speaking for  the parents, said, "We, the  parents of Cedar Grove, are  outraged by the board's decision to cancel French 5,6 and 7.  This course is offered district  wide. Our students will be at a  disadvantage when they get into  high school."  District Superintendent Clifford Smith, explaining the  board's decision, told the  parents it was extremely difficult to get qualified French  teachers.  "We felt it better," he said  "to not continue a program that  was being inexpertly taught."  "The board is committed",  he went on, "to teach French at  the elementary level. We are  working on a solution and hope  to bring a French teacher to  Cedar Grove soon after  Christmas."  Trustee Al Lloyd commented, "It's ironic that in a  supposedly bilingual country  it's extremely difficult to find  people whose French is good  enough to teach our children.  It's not just a question of  throwing money at it. The people just aren't there to be  hired."  How forlorn these crows  become in the dry summer vacation. Their patience shattered,  they will find outlet by picking  upon one of their number, surrounding him in a tight circle,  and cawing the miserable victim  into near breakdown and flight.

Coast News, November 28,1988  By acclamation  SCRD incumbents back  PEGGY CONNOR  AREAB  Peggy Connor was born in  Virden, Manitoba, but she has  spent the last 32 years living on  the Sunshine Coast. Over those  years, she has committed her  time to many organizations  striving to better community life  on the Coast.  Recently, Connor was reelected by acclamation to the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District Board. At present, she  is chairman of that board.  With the exception of a two-  year absence, Connor has been  involved with the SCRD for 10  years. She also represents the  SCRD on the St. Mary's  Hospital Board, the Sechelt  District Chamber of Commerce, the South-West Tourist  Association and the Coast-  Garibaldi Health Unit.  Connor says she is pleased to  continue with the SCRD despite  the heavy time commitment. "I  like to paint and I like to golf  but I don't have much time for  either," she says.  Connor attends all committee  meetings. She is also vice-  chairman of the executive committee for the Provincial  Emergency Program.  For the past 26 years, she has  been a member of the St.  Mary's Hospital Auxiliary.  More recently, she became a  member of the Sunshine Coast  Business and Professional  Women's Club.  "I really enjoy knowing that  we are accomplishing something  good for the area and I like being involved in that. In particular, I would like to see a  finalized Halfmoon Bay Community Plan. The staff has  worked so hard and we hope to  have it in place soon," Connor  said.  "I'd also like to see an expanded golf course, but not to  the detriment of Cliff Gilker  Park. The health unit is also involved in a development plan  which I would like to see implemented during my new term.  And these are just a few of the  projects going on," she added.  Connor is married with two  grown daughters. She resides in  the Halfmoon Bay area.  With an extensive record of  community involvement, it is  clear why Peggy Connor was  voted 'Citizen of the Year' in  1985.

McGillivray was recently  returned for a fourth term to  the board by acclamation. "I  feel we have a good group of  knowledgeable people who  work well together and I'm happy to be able to continue with  them," he says.  McGillivray was born 44  years ago in Vancouver and has  lived the past 11 years on the  Sunshine Coast. He holds a  Master's degree in Geography  and teaches at Capilano College  in North Vancouver.  He has been teaching profes  sionally for the last 17 years.  "Originally, I got involved in  issues over garbage, recycling,  the location of propane tanks  and parks and recreation. In  many cases, I'm still involved.  "But there are also other projects like public transit, bike  paths and the Hillside properties  that I like being involved with,"  says McGillivray.  "In the case of the Hillside  properties, we are hoping to  establish land use patterns that  are not damaging���by locating,  for example, hazardous wastes  and heavy industry in no-  conflict areas," he added.  McGillivray is a world-  traveller. He says this experience has given him a better  perspective on life.  "Last year, I spent three  months in southern Asia. I  returned refreshed and with a  new view of the Sunshine  Coast," he says.  As for the future, he says  he'd "like to see a unified  recreation complex, a good  transit system and a low-key  tourist industry. However, you  have your good days and your  bad days. You just keep going  with the belief that you can do  something good for the  region."  McGillivray is married with a  13-year-old son and a 10-year-  old daughter. He resides in  Roberts Creek where he spends  his free time with his family. He  enjoys playing the occasional  hockey earne  JOHN SHASKE  AREAF  John Shaske, who has been a  director on the Sunshine Coast  Regional District board for six  years, was recently returned by  acclamation for another two  year term.  Shaske is also the present  finance committee chairman.  He says he doesn't believe in  borrowing money for projects.  "I'd prefer to see if we could  generate some revenue for projects without competing with  the private sector," he said.  Shaske, 33, was born in Edmonton, Alberta, and moved to  the Sunshine Coast in 1979. He  is married and owner/pharmacist at Howe Sound Phar-  "I'm really pleased to be able  to continue with such a good  group of directors. We have  been together for a while now  and I think we're a good team,"  said Shaske.  "I'm quite enthused about  the Gibsons bypass. I'm hoping  I can get a lot of input from the  people in this area. I am asking  everyone to write letters concerning the bypass and let me  know what they think," Shaske  said.  Shaske holds a Bachelor of  Science degree in Pharmacy and  is a faculty member of UBC's  Pharmaceutical Sciences. He  also has equivalent credits in  third year economics.  "I would love to see more input from the people in my area  since they are much closer to  what's happening. Quite often,  they spot potential problems  but they don't say anything until the last minute. I'm hoping  that I will hear from more of the  residents in Area F soon," says  Shaske.  When Shaske is not involved  in running the pharmacy or attending SCRD meetings, he  likes to play hockey and cycle.  from SUMROUSKI  Silver Crystals      IA%Qff  Reg.

Done this year by the  kindergarten class, the imaginative display really  brightens the school entrance.  It is also a permanent record  the participants can show their  children   in   years   to   come.  Looks better than weeds.  DID YOU KNOW  Everything thai is found and  turned over to the RCMP in  B.C. is auctioned off if it has  not been claimed in 180 days.  Larger items such as bicycles are  auctioned locally but all smaller  items including jewelery and  money are turned over to the  local government agent.  From there it goes to Victoria  where it is auctioned, the money  used for government purposes,  I am. told.  The 'finder' is not given any  opportunity to make an offer  on Ihe item and in some cases is  not even informed of its  whereabouts after the 180 days  has expired.  from the staff at  Photo Works  885-4447  Trail Bay Cenlre M.

She, together with five  y other people, flew from London  W to Nairobi.  AC All were surprised to find  i^lhey had landed in such a bustl-  ^yng city with a population of  '.iraust over a million and a half. It  HKTvas a great change to find that  >vihe people nearly all walk to  ���t^heir destinations and that very  vj'.few drive.  SS  The group drove on several  'game watching trips on lots of  '���'^l/ery dusly roads and now they  1 ;know   why   everyone   wears  fl khaki. They had fine sightings  )' of elephants, giraffes, zebras  and all kinds of wild animals  and enjoyed watching them in  iheir natural habitat,  if*. One highlight was Ihe sighting of a lioness with Ihree cubs  jund walching her make a kill to  Reed the babes. One night was  spent camping out in a tent  complete wiih showers and  toilets.  A couple of days were spent  at Mount Kenya Safari Club  which was a mosl elegant and  delightful place. Three days in  Mombasa proved lo be just a  bit too hot for comfort.  In one hotel the guests were  warned to keep their windows  shut as the monkeys have a  habit of popping into the rooms  to see what they can find to eat.  In all, it sounds like a  marvelous experience and we  hope that Connie will be able to  show some of the many pictures  she took on the trip.  BACK FROM RENO  Just over a dozen members of  the Welcome Beach Community Association just relumed  from a fun week in Reno. As  yel have had no information as  to the big winners and the big  losers. But you can bet your life  lhal a good lime was had by all.  DONT FORGET  A reminder that the time  draws nigh for you to order  your tickets to the Welcome  Beach Christmas dinners on  December 9 and 10. Call Marg  Vorley or Marg Buckley right  away.  A reminder, too, of the Halfmoon Bay Hospital Auxiliary  bazaar on December 1 in Trail  Bay Mall from 10 am til 2 pm.  LARRY REMEMBERED  Many friends and family  gathered al Ihe Holy Family  Church in Sechelt last week for  the funeral service of Larry  Reardon, formerly of Redrooffs, who passed away very  suddenly.  Tributes were paid to his  memory by Finn Anthony and  by Peggy Connor, bolh friends  of long standing.  Finn's comment lhat there  was "no gray with Larry,  everything was black or white"  pretty well summed up the kind  of man Larry was. Straight and  honest.  At the time of his death he  was harbour manager for the  DOT at the Gibsons Wharf.  While resident on Redrooffs,  he was an active member of the  Area B Ratepayers Association  and stood fast for what he  believed in.  A good, nice man, Larry will  be missed by Enid, his family  and by those of us who knew  him.  PRESCHOOL NEWS  The Welcome Beach Preschool is holding a kitchenware  fundraiser at the Welcome  Beach Hall on Monday,  November 28 at 7:30 pm.  Everyone is welcome. There will  be a door prize.

A spray of white  vinegar will kill the tops.  New growth may appear, so  the application has to be  repeated until the plant is starved. Vinegar can also be used to  conlrol green algae on the top  of house plants soils.  First loosen the soil lo see if  that helps control the algae. If it  does not, drench the soil with a  solution of one tablespoon of  vinegar to two quarts of water.  Vinegar also helps lo prolong  the life of cut flowers. Use a  solution of one quart of water,  one tablespoon sugar, and two  tablespoons white vinegar.  The sugar feeds the flowers  and preserves the colour, while  the vinegar helps prevent the  growih of bacteria and fungi. If  you had blighl or rust problems  with your hollyhocks or delphiniums this past summer, be  sure to remove all old stock  from around the crown before  winter sets in. Remove and burn  all diseased materials from the  garden now.  Remember the gardening section of the stores when  Christmas shopping for those  friends.

Her fall concert was a complete sellout ten  days to two weeks prior to the  performance, which tells us one  of two things. Either we get our  new centre prior to the spring  concert or the program will be  scheduled for two consecutive  nights in the spring.  Alphabetically, with such excellent   performers   as   Anne  Barker, Arlene Collins, Alice  Horsman, Pat Kerr, Patty  Miller and Doug Third with  backup by The 69ers and the  Rolling Tones, the evening was  a huge success. Such composers  as Sigmund Romberg, Gershwin and Rogers and Ham-  merstein provided numbers  throughout the program.  Connie Wilson was the accompanist for all performers.  Floyd Carmen looked after  management of the stage and  sound, as well as providing ac  companiment on the guitar for  the 69ers' presentation of Lara's  Theme from Dr. Zhivago.  Since proceeds of the concert  are donated to the new activity  cenlre building fund, Branch 69  is indebted to all concerned and  tenders their sincere thanks.  THE 69ERS  It rather looks as if December  is going lo be one of our busiest  months. To date we have  several firm engagements.  Members of the group should  note the following dates and  Looking to invest?  Let's talk.  Are you an entrepreneur looking for investment opportunities?  If you are, you owe it to yourself lo look  into the provincial government's new  Small Business Forest Enterprise Program.  The improved program is designed to extract more ot the hidden wealth in our timber  by encouraging the remanuiacture of lumber  and the production of products such as  window frames, doors, and furniture.  Twice the opportunities  We're setting aside twice as much timber  for harvesting by small companies, especially companies with creative manufacturing ideas. And���because security of  materials supply is so important for manufacturers���we're making timber available to  the firms with the best proposals for periods  of up to 10 years.  While we're creating more opportunities for  small companies���and more jobs for British  Columbians���we're also keeping our commitment to future generations.  As small companies harvest timber, the provincial government will be right behind  them, renewing the forest for the future.  We'll use some of the money from timber  sales to pay for the reforestation. We'll  always have productive forests.  You can get more information at your local  district office of the Ministry of Forests.  Let's extract the hidden value from our timber!  $��  ty   Province of British Columbia  "*   Ministry of Forests  Hon. Dave Parker. Minister  places  on  their  appointment  calendars.

He carried a  delighted audience away to the  land of the midnight sun with  his performance of 'Yukon  Nights', a tribute to Robert Service delivered with a hint of  kerosene and magic in the air.  Byrne, a ruddy-cheeked Irish  born coast resident, says he  came to Canada because of  reading about Robert Service's  Yukon. Everyone who attended  the Yukon Nights show saw  some of thai gold rush lifestyle.  With his musical Irish lilt,  Byrne showed us the vast cold  beauty of the north, the men  lusting for gold, the booze, the  bordellos, the winners, the  losers, and the humour. Most of  all, he showed us Robert Service's, and his own, love for the  Yukon.  Congratulations   to   Tom  Byrne for a wonderful performance and lo the music school  for making it possible.  ROOST NEWS  B.C. Lottery Corporation  sales rep Mark Roberts enjoyed  an evening at the Roost and  held a breakopen promotion  with Roy and Paula. Between  the three of them they gave  away over $300 in cash and an  assortment of i Got Lucky'  and 'Give Me A Break' t-shirts  and other lottery paraphenalia.  I thought that the best prize  of the night was a white-on-  black sleeveless Roost sweatshirt, an extra donation from  Roy and Paula. Thanks for a  fun evening!  MUSIC NOTES  There are still tickets left for  the Music Society's Christmas  Ball on Saturday, on sale at  Sunny's Hair Boutique, Talewind Books in Sechelt, and  from all Music Society directors.  The Harbour Lights are playing at the ball, and I wonder if  maybe we take their talent for  granted because they're local  musicians.

Then ihe jubilation broke out  and was to reign supreme  among the New Democrat  workers for the rest of the  night. Results were coming in  faster at Powell River and the  telephone rang.  With 10 Powell River polls  in, it.was 823 for Skelly, 245 for  Rabu and 277 for Warnke, plus  a negligible amount for the  other parties. Smiles reigned  and NDP cheers went up as the  numbers from then on appeared  on the wall charts showing a  landslide victory for their man.  Skelly took all but four polls  on the Sunshine Cost. The next  two polls to report were from  Halfmoon Bay with substantial  Skelly margins.  Then it was the same for two  polls from Sargeant Bay. Then  an even wider margin from a  Shorncliffe poll. It was a far cry  from his squeaking, marginal  700 vote win in 1984.  lt was all over except for the  hugs and tears, a heartfelt thank  you talk by area leader Shaun  Malenka, the tallying of the  final polls and the totals. Then  everybody was off to celebrate  at Davis Bay Community Hall.  At Campbell River a jubilant  Skelly was celebrating with the  party faithful at the Discovery  Inn. By 11 pm he was in the air,  flying to Powell River, there  again to grace the celebration.  It was all over for another  four years!

American Thanksgiving is  over, as are the elections. It  seems there's nothing left to  come between us and Christmas  cheer.  Lights and holly and Santa  Claus can come out again for  another year. People can plan  their annual rounds of  Christmas parties.  Parties are Venusian territory, after all that planet  (Venus) was named after the  original party girl. When Venus  passes by a point in the sky that  is sensitive to a person (i.e. that  lines up with where one of the  planets was when he or she was  born), that person experiences a  few days of feeling pretty good.  They tend to get more sociable,  even romantic, and things just  seem generally pleasant.  Venus moves so quickly, that  it's effects may appear to be  nothing more than a mood.  However, when this 'social butterfly' lines up with Pluto in the  sky, things can get a lot heavier.  Pluto is the planet of intensity  and depth. It is associated with  the death and rebirth process,  and often with sexual issues.  Venus is now in Scorpio (the  sign that is ruled by Pluto). So  between now and December 18,  anybody with their Sun, Moon,  Mercury, Mars or Venus in  Scorpio will have a couple of  days when they're feeling pretty  Christmasy.  But next weekend, Venus will  be lined up with Pluto in the  sky. For those few days major  things could happen to people.  Next Saturday, Sunday and  throw in Monday to be safe, are  days (and nights) when the  romance may lose its lightness  and the flirtations could involve  some strong sexual undercurrents. It's no big deal, as long as  you're aware of the potential  for trouble.  Venus-Pluto aspects often indicate times when unexpected  pregnancies take place, and/or  social disease is transmitted. If  you're going to use astrology as  a tool to take control of your  life, then it makes sense to be  forewarned, and therefore forearmed, against times when you  could make some unfortunate  mistakes.  So if you plan on doing any  partying next weekend, do a few  preventative things to keep the  negative effects of Pluto-Venus  under control. Avoid drinking  too much.  You need to keep a clear head  next weekend and you can tie  on a good one if you want the  following week.  If you are not in a committed  relationship, don't let your hor-  \  mones   override   your   good  sense.  It's only a concern for a few  days, then you can relax and  dive into the festive season with  no more than normal inhibitions.  SHOP LOCALLY!

Forest program  exceeds goal  The five year, $300 million  Canada/British Columbia  Forest Resource Development  Agreement (FRDA) is now expected to exceed its original  goals.  Areas treated under the forest  rehabilitation program will produce more than the original projections of 600,000 cubic metres  of timber annually, 500 future  full time jobs in logging and  manufacturing and 15,000  seasonal jobs in silviculture, an  independent consulting firm  states in a mid-term evaluation  report.  Areas already treated are  estimated lo produce at least  340,000 cubic metres of wood  annually, enough to build 6,600  houses. Silviculture projects lo  the mid-term have generated  about 352,000 days of employment.  The report by Touche Ross  Management Consultants was  made public November 15 by  federal Forestry Minister Gerry  St. Germain, MP for Mission  Port Moody, and British Columbia Forests Minister Dave  Parker.  "Bolh governments are extremely pleased with the FRDA  results," St. Germain said. "We  are not only going to meet our  original goals, but we are now  expecting to exceed them."  "The report indicates clearly  ihe importance of this kind of  agreement in addition to the  province's extensive ongoing  forest renewal program,"  Parker said.  "I am extremely proud of the  way federal and provincial  government staff, forest consultants and contractors have  worked   together   to   make  FRDA a success."  Parker said investments in  new facilities and technology,  such as the Seed Centre in Surrey, and in research, in growing  bigger and better trees, will have  positive impacts on the province's forest resource well into  the future.  The assessment covers the  period from April 1, 1985, to  September 30, 1987, the agreement's mid-point.  The agreement focusses on  the rehabilitation of Not  Satisfactorily Restocked (NSR)  foresl lands and incremental  silviculture in the province's  forests.  St. Germain noted the many  successes of the federal government's direct-delivery component of the government.  "Forestry Canada has undertaken silvicultural activities on  about 165,000 hectares under  the privale forest lands program  and the Indian forest lands program," he stated.  "However, these programs  are still undersubscribed and we  have taken steps to ensure that  the agreement's goals are realized or exceeded.  "The FRDA in British Columbia is being carried out in an  excellent way and I am confident that the projection of exceeding our goals will become a  reality," St. Germain concluded.  The report is available for  viewing at all Ministry of  Forests offices in the province  or at the Canadian Forestry Service's offices in Prince George  or Victoria.

But one  dump of chemicals or used oil in  a storm sewer grating or ditch  can kill all the fish so laborously  placed in such a stream.  So Gibsons Town council  heard November 22 as three  fisheries experts described a  program of marking storm  sewer drains to raise public  awareness of the problem and  to save the fish.  All Sunshine Coast elementary schools except Halfmoon  Bay and Gibsons have taken  part in the fish raising and  stream restocking program during the past six years. One little  Gibsons area creek that had no  fish for 15 years is now alive  again.  This stream is Charman  Creek. But it wasn't chemicals  that killed its fish. The cause  was development.  Builders who put little  streams in cement pipes or fast  running straight ditches, kill  them as fish spawning locations. When the total spawning  of salmon and trout in all these  little streams along the coast is  added up, their loss has a  serious effect on the sport and  commercial fisheries.  The provincial and federal  fisheries people have a program  of marking every storm sewer  inlet with a painted fish  silhouette to remind the public  and increase public awareness.  Mayor Diane Strom assured the  fisheries delegation that town  council would take a favourable  look at the idea.  So Gibsons residents may  soon be seeing the fish markings  api-car. Information packets  will be hung on neighbourhood  doorknobs to explain what the  markings mean.  "People think storm sewers  are connected to treatment  plants and can therefore be used  as dumping places for liquid  and solid wastes. But usually,  and much more often of late,  storm sewers lead directly to the  nearest creek or other body of  fresh water," council was told.  So using storm drains as a  dumping system can permanently destroy the fish  habitat in a stream. Therefore  the signs.  Begun in 1982 the fish hatching and stream restocking  program in the schools became  an authorized part of the curriculum in several subjects at  several levels in the schools. It's  entitled 'Salmonids in the  Classroom'.  Five different types of salmon  are raised and placed in  streams. In addition there are  two types of trout that have life  habits exactly like thai of  salmon, except they don't die  when they spawn.  These two trouts are cutthroat and steelhead, both prized quarry for sportsmen.  Al long-dead Charman Creek  in Gibsons, straight ditches and  concrete pipes are being altered  or bypassed so the fish can happily return. The big new housing development at Gower  Point Road and Dougal will be  designed for fish.  They are, by agreement with  the town, putting in rip-rap  rock to make steps so fish can  live there and spawn. Only one  percent of the salmon and trout  fry live after being raised and  introduced to streams by school  children and conservation  organizations.  So the fish that make these  streams their permanent home,  returning regularly from the  ocean to spawn, are a very  valuable bit of life indeed.  The delegation to Gibsons  council included Peter  Caverhill, provincial fisheries  branch biologist; Tony Barnard, coordinator with the  Habitat Conservation Fund;  and Grant McBain, community  adviser, public involvement  program federal fisheries  department.  Adviser McBain is responsible for the coastal area from  Lund to Pemberton. Anyone  interested in getting involved  with this work can call him at  883-2613 at Pender Harbour.

Borrowings from the collection of furniture expert, Jim Shockey,  'Heart and Soul - Western  Canadian Folk Furniture' includes ilems made for functional service which through ihe  conviction and earnestness of  ihe builders' beliefs have achieved a seeming personality and integrity of their own.  Largely the products of  religious groups who fled  persecution and immigrated lo  Canada en masse around Ihe  turn of the century, this furniture was made by people who  believed lhal every move was  important, lhal every thing they  did should be to Ihe glory of  iheir creator. For some this  meant cheerful decoration and  exhuberanl colour and pattern,  for others il meant restriction to  and celebration of only those  qualities inherent in the  materials and techniques of  construction. Though only  those qualities inherent in the  materials and techniques of  construction. Though much of  il is loo young to be antique, it  is the lingering product of  another century.  This exhibition runs from  November 30 to December 18.  On December 13 at 8pm, expert, dealer and collector, Jim  Shockey will give an informal  and interactive talk and discus  sion. Admission is $1 at the  door.  To help cover ihe extraordinary cosis of ihis exceptional  exhibition there will be a $1 entry fee for adults (children free).  This entitles visitors to return  visits without further charge.  Gallery hours are Wednesday to  Saturday, 11 to 4 and Sunday, I  to 4.

Cox,  grumbling somewhat, pulls on  his topcoat and goes outside to  stand lookout in the chilly  darkness.  With all in readiness Herb  gives Cox a questioning buzz.  Two in response will signify all  is well. Three means potential  trouble, police or nocturnal  strollers who might alert them,  in which event the caper will be  aborted and Ihe gang will scatter for Ihe exits.  There is no response from  Cox and Herb begins to sweat  again. There must be someone  in the vicinity. The seconds drag  leadenly by. Suddenly one quick  buzz snaps the tension, followed by another. To Herb's profound relief, there is no third.  The danger is past and all  systems are go. Herb touches  the ends of the fuse wires to a  flashlight battery.  The explosion has been gagged as effectively as the two  prisoners. There is a muffled,  popping, flatulent sound,  followed by a dim rumbling  noise like ghostly thunder. The  wet comforters, their function  served, fall away. The door of  the massive safe, its holding-  bolts neatly sheared, pops open  politely before the discreet, inexorable force of the blast.  Herb feels a surge of pride.  His father would have been  delighted wilh the effect, if not  the application.  Relatively quiet as the explosion was, it could still have been  heard by some sharp-eared  passerby. Herb buzzes Cox  again. This time the affirmative  response is quick in coming.  Herb and the others hurry  over to the ruptured safe. There  is a thin secondary door which  Calendar  Herb disposes of quickly with  an electric drill. Behind this sits  the keesler, the small inner  strongbox - the jackpot! Eager  hands drag it from its hiding  place and Herb snaps the lid  open with another small shot.  They do not waste lime examining the take. The contents of the  keester are simply scooped into  swag bags. The tools are hurriedly gathered up and the gang  take their leave. Powers and  Muir, still handcuffed to their  chairs, glare mutely.  Minutes later, wilh a relieved  de la Pena at the wheel, the  gang roars off into the frigid  Detroit nighl.  The following morning Ihey  meel in Cox's hotel room to  split up the loot. It amounts to  $25,000 in cash and $10,000 in  negotiable bonds. The bonds  will have lo be disposed of by  fences known lo Cox and Redding in other cities. The gang  have agreed on an even split.  "Not bad for a first score,"  says Cox. "You got my vote  anytime, Reverend. You were  cool as a cucumber."  "Believe me," declares Herb  wiih a pleased look, "this is only the beginning."  Late that evening Herb puts  several crisp bills in a long white  envelope and addresses it to a  threadbare mission on  London's Whiskey Row. It is  ihe first of many anonymous  donations the little mission will  receive from it's ex-Superintendent.  In another envelope he stuffs  a generous cheque made out to  Mrs. Alice Wilson. The cheque  is accompanied by a reassuring  letter explaining to Alice that he  has successfully completed  some profitable real estate transactions bul, due to further impending business, he will not be  able to join her in Los Angeles  for a while yet.  Finally he makes out another  cheque and composes an accompanying letter. "Dear  Mother," he begins, and chews  thoughtfully on his pen.  To be continued...

Band leader Bill Rayment  told the school board at last  week's meeting that an invitation to perform at Disneyland is  considered to be the ultimate  venue for a high school band. It  is earned by reputation or audition.  Elphi's invitation came as a  result of their recent performance in Nova Scotia. An audition with Disneyland followed,  which resulted in the invitation.  The trip will cost the students  $600 each. This money is being  raised by band members themselves through activities such as  car washes, sales and individual  jobs.  A group of biology students  from Chatelech will be taking a  trip to BamHeld Marine Station  in February next year.

Not so at the Sea Ranch restaurant in  Pender Harbour, my companion and I discovered last  week, where locals can enjoy the kind of dining that's  usually reserved to impress visitors.  We sal at a table by the window and looked down and  across the inner harbour to the lights of Garden Bay, tranquil and enchanting. Inside, candles and fringe-shaded  lamps above each (able softly illuminated lush tropical  plants. Classical music completed a romantic atmosphere,  and we enjoyed bountiful tossed salads.  My entree was steak and prawns, and that combination  of tender lean, medium-rare beef and fresh, succulent, rich  seafood done in garlic and butter was a culinary pleasure  beyond comparison.  My companion (somewhat of a picky eater at the best of  times) had roast beef, and he couldn't help but praise the  quality of the meat and the thoughtfulness of the waitress,  who provided both regular and extra hot horseradish, to  accommodate both the traditional and more adventurous  diner.  "This is really lean," he said between mouthfuls, obviously impressed.  "Just delicious!" he concluded, looking longingly,  almost lovingly, at the last two prawns on my plate.  Our meals included hefty baked potatoes and exquisite  candied carrots, and for dessert we sipped Monte Cristo  coffees.  Feeling sated and pampered, we watched the lights from  Garden Bay blink out and planned our next dinner out.  The Sea Ranch, for sure.  Average meal prices quoted do not include liquor.

Coast News, November 28,1988  Lots at pool for everyone  by Harold Blaine  Nobody needs to say there's  nothing for youth or any olher  age group to do, so long as  they're within travelling  distance of the Gibsons Swimming Pool, says Trish Makow,  head lifeguard.  There are programs for teens  and tiny tots, the handicapped,  great grandfolks and mom and  dad. Everybody!  This pool is even a summer  job training place for teenagers  wanting to work next year in the  summer. Training in swimming  that qualifies one for lifeguar-  ding and camp work is available.

Those interested in fitness  and aerobics can work out with  an extra feature. Try 'water-  robics' by joining the programs  for your personal level at the  pool, be you young or old, flabby, or fit as a fiddle.  The wide range of swim activities available is amazing.  You can be a complete 'duffer'  out to get a basic start at fitness  or a little exercise. You can be a  master swimmer preparing for  competition or marathons. Or  you can be anything from the  worst or best athlete.  You can start the Red Cross  Water Safety work at age 6.  Then you can progress through  all the badges, adding in the  Royal Lifesaving Society training as you get older and more  advanced.  Swimming is often described  as the most effective of all the  forms of exercise. There's room  right now in just about all the  programs at the pool, says head  lifeguard Makow.  There is room in the pool  schedule to start new programs  at new times if there are enough  participants gathered up by any  neighbourhood, organization or  group. The swimming club is  active again, a separate organization where there are extra opportunities including some competition.  Two years ago the Gibsons  council was going to shut the i  pool down. But the program  was cut down instead.  Now new programs are only  started if enough participation  is guaranteed. Existing programs are only run if they're at  least close to the break even  position.  The Early Bird water-robics  people turn out at 6:30 am  Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Participation in this group  is hovering around the break  even mark and there is comfortable room for more people.

Participation goes in  cycles. The Early Bird was  packed, now it's easing off, says  Makow.  Pre-natal and post-natal  women, and also people out of  fitness for a long time, choose  the Ease Me In water-robics  program from 10 to 11 am  Mondays, Wednesdays and  Fridays.  The pool has two schedules.  It changes over to start a new  cycle about one month long on  December 5.  The Swim Fit program is just  adults. It involves different  lengths of swim, different combinations of strokes and different ways of working the upper body.  Swim Fit is the only adult  program now running. Free  swimming for adults was cut  out due to lack of participation.  Swim Fit includes the master  swimmers who use the pool.  Like the Early Bird and Ease  Me In programs which are all  water aerobics and no actual  swimming, there are the other  such programs: Aqua Fit, Fit  and 50 Plus and Co-ed Fitness.  The Senior Swim hasn't been  so full a program lately, but is  at a nice time in the later mornings.  "The shallow end of the pool  is a wonderful place to do  aerobics. The water takes the  jar out of the steps and jumps.  Other special movements can be  added in water," says lifeguard  Makow.  The pool offers a facility for  other activities such as skin and  scuba diving, CPR training,  water polo, water babies, all  kinds of swimming lessons,  teen-only swimming, etc.  Just this summer in August  the pool was completely  renovated. It was repainted,  new sliding glass full-length  windows were installed.  Mobiles made by the  Achievement Centre were hung.  Other Gibsons people are making sculptured clouds to hang  above the pool to absorb and  reduce noise.  It takes 88 laps of the 18  meter (60 foot) pool to do a mile  swim, or 56 lengths for a  kilometre.  Trfiitittt_.itiii_.a__z  Ski  Holiday?

Nutter  Sometime in the late fifties I  was sent to Manitoba to see the  bishop of the Hutterites. The  Hutterites don't, strictly speaking, have bishops but he was unquestionably the head man both  lay and clerical. What the Film  Board wanted was for him to let  us make a film about the Hut-  terite communities.  I picked ap a lawyer in Winnipeg, Arnie Kimmel. Arnie was  a philosopher and a student of  the Old German, as still used by  the Hutterites. Also he had been  our bartender in the air force in  Newfoundland during the war,  first in Gander and then in an  even odder place, Twillingate.  Twillingate was a very small  place at the end of a fiord on the  north coast, close to where the  Vikings first came to North  America. We used ii as a last  ditch place for landing on the  sea.

After  that nothing else much happened in Twillingate until closing  time.  Because of his skill with the  Old German, Arnie had come  to handle quite a bit of litigation  in the Manitoba courts on  behalf of the Hutterites. This  was not because they broke the  laws but because they were too  successful.  Great fanners and managers,  their flocks and people increased exceedingly. There was ever a  need for new communities, and  when it came to buying land  they of course had bags of  money.  The trouble was they were an  almost totally closed society. All  about the perimeters of the  communities' villages would  begin to wither away - not  enough to make up a baseball  or hockey team, or run a  church.  In Alberta they had legislated  limitations to the communities.  One should not be within a hundred miles of another. The same  sort of bill was now before the  Manitoba Legislature.  Arnie knew the bishop, the  man we were going to see, and  had a high regard for him. The  bishop, he said, had been a  strong mover in programs to  put the facts and concerns of  the Hutterites before the public  eye.  It had been the bishop, he  said, who had been responsible  for putting the Hutterite's  history into English, and  published, and put into all the  libraries in the land.

Anyone knowing the whereabouts of any of these items  please call the Gibsons Detachment and quote file 88-3365.  On November 22 a catamaran disappeared from its secure  mooring in front of a summer  residence at Williamson's Landing.  The catamaran is a 15 foot  Gibbs, white hull, red decks,  with a black trampoline-type  materia] stretched between the  hulls.  Identification number (California) is still clearly printed on  the vessel, CF087OEN.  Value of vessel is between  $2000 and $2500.  On the night of November 24  a sign in the shape of an arrow  was stolen from the Truffles  storefront. The sign is black and  yellow with the words Ice  Cream printed on it in red letters.  A cassette stereo was stolen  from a VW Rabbit, orange in  colour parked outside a house  on Keith Road. Call the RCMP  with information.  National Safe Driving Week  is December 1 to 7.

The bishop's community was  south of Portage la Prairie. It  had a high wire fence around, a  gate and a gatekeeper. Across  the road from the gate was a  school, run by Mennonites, a  group sympathetic to the Hutterites but with relaxed  disciplines vis-a-vis the host  culture.  The Hutterites had been hit  by Manitoba requirements that  their children go through the  general school program. The  Mennonite school was the best  they could do.  The bishop in his parlour was  nicely patriarchal, white bearded, very alert. But he preferred  to speak in German through Arnie.  I put it, of course, that the  NFB was government but independent as a producer, had  no interest in making anything  over dramatic on his situation,  had a world-wide reputation for  fairness in documentary, etc.  He turned to Arnie and a  quite long, reasoned sounding  speech ensued. Arnie turned to  me, "He says you can shoot his  chickens and you can shoot his  ducks and you can shoot his  fields of waving corn, but you  must leave his people alone.":;  That was, of course, that. !I  turned to him and said "Why?V  He turned to me and said in  slow English, "Because film is  adultery".  It took me a couple of beats  to realize that what he meant  was 'idolatry', and that he was  thinking of the Ten Commandments: 'thou shalt not make unf  to thyself any graven image1;  and a couple more to realize lie  was right.  Arnie and I discussed it, of  course, on the way back to tht  airport. No question about itj  film is a graven image on thi  silver nitrate there, on the stock]  So because of the speed it'aj  'natural'? But we choose the.  frames, the movement and th*  cuts...  Some years later it came that  I was driving John Grierson (the  Father of Documentary) to the  airport in Toronto. I told him  this little story of the bishop. He  grinned. "Well" he said, "supposing we had known what image we actually were creating  unto ourselves, what could we  have done about it?"

Lenora Joe  Editor:  1 have recently received a  considerable amount of correspondence from constituents  in the Mackenzie Riding outlining their concerns about taxes  on beer in British Columbia.  These letters for the most part  have taken the shape of 'form  letters' which are pre-typed and  all that needs to be added is an  address and signature.  In a majority of cases no  return address has been supplied so, unfortunately I have  not been able to respond to  these letters. For the information of all constituents of the  riding 1 would ask that you  publish the following response  about the tax rate on beer in  British Columbia.  The B.C. provincial sales tax  on beer is 10 percent. Of the  total selling price of a case of  beer, which includes all taxes,  the combined federal/provinciai  sales tax rate is 24.5 percent.  Recent newspaper advertisements by the Brewers of  Canada state that many goods  are taxed at about 19 percent  while beer is taxed at 52 percent  (56 percent in B.C.). This statement is misleading because it includes the Liquor Distribution  Branch retail markup as tax,  while markup of the other  goods (45 to 50 percent) is not  included.  If you remove the retail  markup from the 57 percent  (B.C. beer tax) or if you include  the markup for other goods (i.e.  department store goods), the  figures tell quite a different  story:  Beer (Packaged, B.C.) - Tax  24.5 percent, Retail Markup  32.5 percent, Total 57 percent.  Department store goods - Tax  19 percent, Retail Markup 45 to  50 percent, Total 64 io 69 percent.  On buying wood  Editor:  Wanted - a list of hones,  wood dealers.

There are places to go,  people to see, and  things to do you've been  dreaming about for  years. And when you  retire, you want to be in  a financial position to  make them all come  true. If you've been  thinking about your  retirement years, think  about planning now  with your Credit Union.

One more good  reason to make use of  your Credit Union.  three wood suppliers. One load  advertized at $50 a load, came  thrown loose in the truck. When  1 protested the small amount of  wood he said I ordered a truck  load at $50. This was it, so I  paid him but put him on my  black list.  The next supplier brought  mostly 12" length wood. Again  I was gypped at $80 a cord. The  wood is of good quality and the  length averaged 16". But after 1  piled it I found myself short  $24.50 worth of wood after  paving a total of $344.50  I phoned my supplier and  asked him to come and see the  piled wood and also bring me  $24 worth of wood. That, was  August 29 and all my phone  calls net me a yeah! yeah!  1 am over 70 years of age and  probably reckoned as an easy  target for a fast buck. As I am  now burning this year's wood, 1  presume I am out $24.50 but if I  do not receive $24 worth of  alder before January 2, 1989, 1  will then send this letter plus a  photostat copy of my cheques  to the tax department, that they  may share one third of my loss.  I also suggest to all seniors  who buy wood, that you pile it  before paying for same.  K.M. Gustafson  Proposal  support  Editor's note:  A copy of Ihe to-lowing letter  has been received for publication  Ms. Maureen Clayton  Chairwoman of School Trustees  School District 46  Gibsons, B.C.  Dear Ms. Clayton,  The Sunshine Coast Arts  Council wishes to support the  proposal of Fred Inglis of the  Heritage Society that the  building situated on the corner  of North Road and Highway  101 be preserved and converted  to community use.  There is a lack of facilities for  community use for meetings,  workshops, rehearsals, and  small theatre performances, and  we understand this building  would be most suitable for these  purposes.  Belinda Mcleod  Correspondence Secretary  The 32.5 percent Liquor  Distribution Branch markup is  not a tax. Markup helps the  LDB pay for staff, lease of  space, and other operating expenses.  By contrast, a recent LDB  study found that in Washington  State grocery chains, the  average retail markup on  domestic beer is approximately  47 percent of the selling price.  The Brewers' ad campaign  also suggests that perhaps the  government makes too much  money from the sale of alcohol.  As many of you may be aware,  the government makes 'A to Vi  as much money as is spent on  (he social costs of alcohol abuse  in this province.  Beer is not an innocent  bystander regarding social  costs. Studies in other jurisdictions indicate that beer contributes to its share of impaired  driving offenses.  Beer is the cheapest form of  absolute alcohol. Why should  the producers and consumers of  this product not share in the  responsibility for the horrendous social costs attributed to  this substance?  This government strongly  believes in the right of the individual to make responsible  choices in the consumption of  alcoholic beverages. Education  and prevention activities  directed at moderate use rather  than abuse of alcohol are high  priorities of this government as  are treatment programs for  those individuals who suffer the  consequences of abuse.  Taxes on alcohol are not intended to be a deterrent for purchasing alcohol, but rather a  method of generating increased  revenue that can be used for  education, prevention and treatment of alcohol abuse.  I hope this helps to clarify the  government's position on this  important matter.  Harold Long, M.L.A.  Mackenzie Riding  THE ELECTROLYSIS SOLUTION  G.L. Gilbert  Electrolysis! When we hear this word we automatically think nf two things; unsightly hair and the removal of it. What exactly is electrolysis in layman terms?  Many books have been written on the subject over the past several decades, and  being of both a medically scientific and technical nature, oversimplified answers  are quite difficult to make, but the basics can be addressed without too much emphasis being placed on in-depth explanations.  Today the removal of superfluous hair is accomplished by one of two methods,  or as will be discussed by a combination of both.  The first method is called the Galvanic Technique (having an electric effect),  and is performed by inserting a tiny sterile needle Into the hair follicle in question.  The needle is charged with negative galvanic current which creates a chemical  decomposition resulting in elimination of the unwanted hair.  The second method is known as the High-Frequency Technique, and relies  primarily on the heating effect of the current to destroy the undesirable hair.  Both the methods described have their inherent weaknesses - Galvanic being a  slow process and High-Frequency not always having the desired effects when used by itself. The solution to these problems have been solved with the development of the Blend Method.  The Blend Method uses both galvanic and low-intensity high-frequency current simultaneously, resulting in Galvanic thoroughness and High-Frequency  speed The combinations of using the Blend Method with a tapered needle and  an added specialized technique called 'progressive epilation', make it possible to  treat every type of hair problem with success.  What kind of hair problems are a concern to people seeking the help ot an  eletrolysis technician? Some of the more common incidents would be hair on  the chin, upper lip. eyebrows, underarms, legs and so on. Generally spcakinr. we  would assume that the aforementioned cosmetic symptoms apply to women  only, but men too suffer from unsightly hair. Many men are plagued with hair  growing on their eyebrows that, have a tendency to meet at the centre of their  foreheads and similar disorders.
