Array legislative library I JL 1. U. J. \JL CI. I V> O  : to hopefulness mark the  ing the 1980 election in the  '    letfii  liaments builfenG8  Ri   ;oria, b.c.   (   80.1  campatt,  Comox-Powell River riding.  Most confident of the three parties would appear to be the  Progressive Conservatives. At a wine and cheese party held at  the Cedar Plaza in Gibsons last Wednesday night, Conservative  candidate Al Lazerte told the assembled party workers and  supporters that the Conservatives were building. "Three times I've  tried to win election," said Lazerte. This is the one that puts us  over the top."  The Conservative candidate pointed out that in theelection last.  May the Conservatives only had two campaign offices in the  riding compared to five throughout the riding this time.  The campaign manager for Liberal candidate Shirley  McLoughlin described the local Liberalsas being hopeful, though  they were starting off in third place. "We are more hopeful than we  were at the start ofthe campaign," said Joseph Holland,a Powell  River lawyer. "Comparing this campaign to the campaigns in 1974  and 1979, we have more workers and are getting a better response  from the public."  McLoughlin's manager said that he recognized that it was an  uphill struggle but predicted that his party would do substantially  better than it did in the 1979 election.  Meanwhile the NDP who presently are represented in  Parliament by MP Ray Skelly seemed to occupy the middle  ground between its rivals. Skelly's campaign manager locally,  in local riding  v  Stephen Lee of Gibsons, told the Coast News that his party was  cautiously optimistic. "We are very pleased at the effort put forth  by campaign workers from Gambier Island to Egmont. Weather,  time, and the flu have been against us but they are doing an  excellent job of canvassing, distributing leaflets, and putting up  signs."  Lee said that the canvass response had been encouraging. "It  seems that people realize that they have an excellent MP in Ray  Skelly."  Skelly, seeking election for the second time within a year, is 38  years of age and functioned during the brief life of the last  Parliament as the New Democratic Party's critic for forestry. He  was born and raised in New Westminster and before taking up  politics full time taught Social Studies and Psychology at George  P. Vanier Senior Secondary School in Courtenay.  Skelly's activity in politics pre-dates his election last year. He  has served as the president of both the provincial and federal  riding associations and his brother Bob Skelly is the sitting  member of the provincial legislature for the Alberni riding on  Vancouver Island.  The sitting member in Ottawa has tried his hand at a variety of  occupations. He has been a labourer, a steam engineer, a first aid  attendant, a correctional officer as well as a school teacher. He has  been active in union work in the International Woodworkers of  America, the B.C. Government Employees' Association, and  the B.C. Teachers' Federation. He also served for some years as  chairman of the Comox Valley Family Court and the Comox  Valley Resources Board. He and his wife Dorothv live in  Courtenay with their three daughters.  Liberal candidate Shirley McLoughlin is also British Columbia  born. She was born in Nanaimo 49 years ago, the daughter of a  master mariner and a Comox Valley school teacher. She  graduated from U.B.C. with Geography and Economics as her  main fields of interest.  McLoughlin is married to Peter McLoughlin, a Development  Economist and University professor and during their marriage the  McLoughlins have lived in California, Texas, Sudan, Uganda,  Calgary, Toronto and Federicton. The Liberal candidate taught  school between I9S2-SS and at the present time manages two  small businesses.  Like her NDP opponent she has been long a political activist in  the Liberal Party and at the present time is the President ofthe  British Columbia Liberal Party.  McLoughlin's concerns are to establish two-way communication with the constituents of this huge riding and to bring some  co-ordination to its development. A recent press release points oul  that the development of the coastal regions of British Columbia  has long been on a piece-meal basis with provincial, federal, and  private industry groups frequently working at cross purposes. She  proposes a two-year program designed to bring these divergent  aims and interests into co-ordination.  The Conservative candidate is equally a political veteran. Al  Lazerte, in addition to being a three-time federal candidate on the  West Coast, started his life of political activity in a leadership  campaign for the provincial Progressive Conservatives in Alberta.  He came second in a field of five candidates. His youth leader in  that campaign was an 18-year old called Joe Clark.  In a local visit recently, Lazerte described this federal riding as a  mosaic of talent and age groups and said that he considered the  Gibsons marina as a top priority item if he is sent to Ottawa.  "You are concerned about what your MP can do for you and  your family and your lifestyles." said Lazerte and pointed,to Ihe  support he has received during this campaign from four cabinet  ministers and the Prime Minister as evidence of the impact he  would have if elected.  The Conservative candidate pointed out that since the last  election he had been consistently invited by the B.C. Progressive  Conservative caucus of MP's to attend their discussions and has  had frequent conversations with the three Cabinet Ministers from  this province in the last Administration.  The Campbell River lawyer running on behalf of ihe  Progressive Parly is Vancouver born and Alberta trained and has  taken public positions of anti-abortion and pro-capilal  punishment. He is married and has five children.  All ofthe candidates will be in Sechelt on Thursday, February 14  for an All Candidates Meeting in the Senior Citizens Hall  otherwise known as the old Legion Hall on Mermaid Street. Thi  meeting is scheduled for 8:00 p.m.  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15$ per copy on news stands  Second Class Mail Registration No. 470?

Shrouded in smoke, the Sechelt Volunteer Fire Department members try to contain Friday morning's house fire at  Selma Park.  Sees Ferry improvement  Lockstead critical on roads  Through the efforts of the firemen, only one house was lost. Theabove picture shows the remains of the McKay home.  Last week in Sechelt  An announcement from the  offices of the Minister of  Transportation and Highways  of upgrading work planned for  37.48 kilometres of Sunshine  Coast Highways has come  under criticism from local  MLA Don Lockstead.  While welcoming the news  that S1.160.00 will be spent on  local roads beginning in mid-  April, Lockstead deplored the  piece-meal approach to road  improvements in this area. "I  will continue to press the  Government for continued  upgrading of Highway 101  from the Jolly Roger to Pender  Harbour," said Lockstead.  "The NDP feels that a rational  amount of work should be  done each year. The highway  north of the Jolly Roger has  been left virtually untouched  for three years."  Lockstead contrasted the  one million dollars being spent  locally with forty million being  spent in the Highway Minister's own political riding this  year.  The paving planned will  be along six kilometers of  Halfmoon Bay and North  Section roads, 11.81 kilometres  at Reception Point and Sechelt  area roads, 9.63 kilometres of  Davis Bay and Roberts Creek  roads, and 10.04 kilometres of  Gibsons area roads.  The Tuwanek and Port  Mellon gravel pits will be used  to produce and stockpile  materials for the road work.  Subdivisions and parking  In other transportation matters Lockstead, who is the NDP  Transportation spokesman,  said that he had reason to  believe that there would be two  ferries operating full time on  Route 3 between Horseshoe  Bay and Langdale this year and  that he would continue to seek  confirmation that ferry fares  would not be increased and  that commuter cards for Sunshine Coast and Gulf Islands  residents would continue in  effect.  Bylaw 210, the Subdivision  Control for the Sechelt area  was given second reading at  Council's Wednesday evening  meeting.  o        1       l      /~ii l ��� 1A Puouc information meet-  hechelt Chamber properly constituted ing** previously bn��  ,.,    ���  ���... .   .r        ,J     , ._ ��      ,,,,.       _,_^..f_..L.    ranged for February 12th. This  meeting has been moved back  to the 26th of February. For  The Coast News was misinformed in the matter of  quorum requirements for the  Sechelt Chamber of Commerce. This was reported to be  25 in last week's newspaper.  That had in fact been the figure,  but several ofthe Directors and  Executive of the Chamber  thought it had been changed.  Understandably enough with a  new slate of Officers no one was  entirely certain as to what Ihe  number had been changed to  and when, and some had no  knowledge of any change.  Thanks to the efforts of  incoming Secretary-Treasurer  June Bernauer, the minutes of a  Directors' meeting of June 4,  1979 were brought to light  together with the information  that the quorum requirements  had been changed to 15 members or 15 percent of the  membership. The Coast News  would like to apologize for the  consternation caused by the  misinformation in last week's  report and for the inconvenience caused thereby to the new  executive.  We wish the incoming Executive and Directors every  success in 1980, and wc look  forward to reporting the  Chamber's activities in these  pages.  Post Office closure protest  A letter from the Canadian  Postmasters' and Assistants'  Association (CPAA) is presently being circulated to the  Chambers of Commerce and  local governing agencies in  B.C. The letter outlines the  CPAA's stand on the Post  Office's plans for Saturday  closing of all small community  Post Offices.  They are against it for a  variety of reasons. It is felt that  it would start a tendency for the  businesses to move towards the  larger centres where they could  have six days of postal service,  the public and the business  sector would be forced into  using  alternate  and  more  expensive methods and the  economy of the community  would suffer through the lack  of service and the removal of  several jobs.  On receipt of this letter, the  Sechelt Council added one  more drawback. They felt that  it would affect the tourist trade.  The clerk had been advised to  await the result of the upcoming federal election, then to  send a letter against the closure  to the local Member of Parliament.  Gibsons Postmaster Les  Virag was in basic agreement  with the views ofthe CPAA. He  pointed out that this would be a  loss to postal employees in his  office alone of 26 man-hours  per week. This would also  affect the Rural Route, which  would have to stop the Saturday delivery.  The proposed curtailment in  Saturday delivery is part ofthe  efforts ofthe postal department  to cut back on operating  expenses.  those interested in examining  the document before the meeting time, it will be available for  perusal at the Village Office.  The third reading and the  final adoption dates have also  been changed. They are now  March 5th and March 19th  respectively.  To alleviate the traffic problem from The Dock out Onto  Cowrie Street, Alderman Mac-  donald suggested that as a  temporary measure a "No Left  Turn" sign be posted at the exit  and that the two parking paces  to the east of the exit be kept  clear. The Elementary School  is also having a similar problem  with parking on Shorncliffe  Avenue which will be dealt with  at a School Board meeting with  members of Council present.  In view of this plus his feeling  that the parking bylaws should  be rewritten, Macdonald felt  that the temporary measure  would be adequate at this time.  It was carried that a letter be  sent to Jack Mayne thanking  him for his work on the Board  of Variance.  Under correspondence, a  letter was received from C.  Dowman of the Sechelt Ratepayers' Association, stating  that in their opinion, Mr. Peter  Gordon was in contravention  ofthe Village bylaws by having  his survey office in a residential  area. The matter will be  referred to the Mayor.  Invar Surveys Ltd. wrote  Council asking that their July  llth application for a subdivision on Block 10 and Lot 11  on Trail Avenue be amended  slightly. It was pointed out by  Alderman Macdonald that  there was no evidence of an  application on July llth and  since the payment for the  proposal had only been received  the   previous   day.   it  should be considered as a new  application and referred to the  Planning Committee.  The letters were received  from the Sunshine Coast Arts  Council, one from Burrell  Swart/ asking Council that,  since last year's $7,000 grant  application for landscaping  went astray, would there be  $500 available from the Village  for grading soil and ornamental rocks.  Ihe   second    letter,    from  Please turn to page twenty,  Gibsons Marina  Alderman Larry Trainor,  reporting for the Standing  Committee on the Gibsons  Marina, told Gibsons Council at  their meeting held on Tuesday,  February S, that all candidates  in the federal election had been  briefed by his committee on the  status and needs of the marina  project.  "We are waiting for the  election to be over to get things  moving," said Trainor.  r*~^' ������ "������'���  --    ���:       . ������ - -v*> .��� ^f^.

It has been said  recently that the kind of politician that  Trudeau has become is the kind of  politician he used to attack mercilessly in  his gadfly days as a social critic. Power  corrupts, says the old adage, and to  contemplate Trudeau, that arrogant  intellect, saying nothing inorder to regain  the reigns of power on behalf of a party  that he attacked twenty years ago as a  cynical corruption on the Canadian scene  is a bitter irony.  The; vision of a democracy in which  honest men debate openly and perhaps  even passionately the great issues of the  day; grows ever dimmer and seemingly  further from our grasp. This present  travesty with advertising agencies selling  images like so many soap products is an  appalling spectacle, and what is even more  appalling' is the growing cynicism of the  Canadian voter who now no longerexpects  anythirtg different from his politicians.  Meanwhile the NDP soldiers on, the  unexplored alternative on the national  scene. Callers to rado hotline shows  deplore the Conservatives and the Liberals  but reject any consideration of the NDP  because 'socialists destroy economic  systems'. In vain does Ed Broadbent point  out that a social democratic government is  in power in West Germany and it is  possibly the most successful economy in  the world.

Beginning with thesidewheelerBeaverin1836, the  Hudson's Bay Company inaugurated and gradually added to a fleet of  power-driven craft along the Pacific Northwest coast and up and down  its chief navigable rivers. In 1904, while Fur Manager for New Caledonia,  James Thomson commissioned the building of the sternwheeler Mount  Royal. Here, on its trial run, the vessel lies dead in the water for a Jones &  Co. photographer from Victoria. Thomson stands amid dignitaries and  members of h is fami ly below the wheelhouse, and son Eric is the after of  the two figures by the smokestack. The Mount Royal later steamed up  the inside passage to serve on the Skeena River. In 1910 itwas caught in  a rapids below Hazelton and its hull broken against the rocks. Its strongbox, purportedly carrying Omineca gold, was never recovered.  Completion of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway to Prince Rupert three  years later brought the role of the Skeena sternwheelers to an end.  Photo courtesy Eric Thomson collection. L.R.

One oft the crosses that you  have to bear if.you are.'Kke me,  a supporter of the NDP, the  perennial third party in Canadian politics, is the question:  "Why do you waste your vote  by voting for the New Democrats? You know they are not  going to be elected as a  government."  I've been asked the question  so often over so many years  that I'm afraid that my eyes  glaze and I begin to utter  incoherent noises at the sound  of the words. My interlocutor,  be he or she an arrogant Liberal  or a smug Tory, walks away  thinking, "A typical NDP  voter. Doesn't know what he's  doing, obviously."  My ineptitude is caused by  the fact that I've given the  answer so many times over the  past quarter of a century that  my tongue sticks to the roof of  my mouth and my heart fills  with despair as yet again I try  with the ineffectual tools of  reason and logic to confront  the twin giants of custom and  intellectual inertia.  Let me have a try at answering the question in print. Let's  deal with the three major  Canadian political parties in  sequence. I make no apology  for considering the NDP a  major party. A party which for  decades has consistently won  the support of one Canadian in  five, which has at one time been  the party of government in  three Canadian provinces,  which at ihe present time is  providing the province of  Saskatchewan with the most  competent and compassionate  government in the country, and  which consistently has spearheaded the most progressive  and humanitarian legislation  enacted on the continent of  North America is a major  party.  I vote NDP because I believe  in the philosophy which says  that there is a place for cooperation as well as competition. Society is based on cooperative effort and if every  gung-ho free enterprise entrepreneur who thinks he needs no  one else were to find himself in  an isolated situation to provide  his food and shelter without the  help of his fellows he would  find that his energy and ability-  would win him scant measure  of basic survival. 1 vote NDP  because over the years they  have tirelessly pointed out that  a country which did not control  ���s own 'resources was not a  country with much of a future.  - 1 vote NDP because I believe in  something. A vote cast for a  positive reason is not a wasted  vote.  On the other hand, as this  present election is so clearly  pointing out, many of the  Canadians who ask me why I  waste my vote are in a terrible  dilemma this time around.  They don't know whether they  like Joe Clark less than Pierre  Trudeau or whether it's the  other way around. The vote  cast reluctantly for what is  perceived to be the lesser of two  evils is, in my opinion, a wasted  vote.  Take a look at the record.  The Liberal party has been in  power for all but eight years of  the past 50 odd. Their great  Prime Minister at the turn of  the century, Wilfred Laurier,  coined the slogan: "The twentieth century belongs to Canada". And so it should have. A  young giant bursting with the  resources that a developing  world requires, Canada should  have become one ofthe premier  nations of the world. Instead,  as wc swing into the I980's we  have a sick economy, a failing  dollar, and our resources we  have to buy from foreign  companies at the prices paid by  the rest of the world. The  Liberal party has superintended this pathetic record and I  say that anyone who casts a  vote for a party with such a  tarnished historic record and  such a discredited, bored  arrogance of a leader is in all  truth wasting a vote.  The Conservatives: well,  they've been so long in opposition that they know nothing but carping attack.  Already they are sharpening  their knives for another of their  leaders. In office, they have  implemented those policies  they attacked in opposition.  This present manifestation of  the party shows a most distressing tendency to follow  slavishly along a path laid out  for it by American foreign  policy. Flora Macdonald's  recent assertion that anyone  fleeing the American draft can  no longer come to Canada flies  m the face of a tradition of  tolerance and acceptance  which goes back to the days  when runaway slaves took  freedom Road north to Cana  da. There is also the uneasy  suspicion that Joe Clark is  Peter Lougheed's creature and  Lougheed is the servant ofthe  multi-national oil corporations. There is no hope the drift  of Canada into the role of  economic and political satellite  of the United States will be  reversed under this Conservative leadership.  God knows, 1 could go on  and on. In the quarter of a  century that I have lived in this  country I have come to love it  as an adopted child loves a  parent. I am constantly  touched by the tendency of  Canadians to fair-minded  tolerance of a wide variety of  views. I see a nascent people  much different in character lo  their hysterical and bigoted  neighbours to the south and I  grieve as I watch the elec.ion of  governments which dare to  think no new thoughts.  A vote for either the Liberals  or the Conservatives can only  lead to more of the same and is,  in historic certainty, a wasted  vote with a nation's future at  stake.  One advantage, perhaps the  only one, of living in one place  and writing for somewhere else  is that the writer can say any  damn thing he likes without  , ending up in a fierce argument  in the line up at the super  market. Living and writing in  the same community does  present its special responsibilities.  There is an issue however, on  which I appear to be in the  minority. I'm not sure whether  it's bec.uise I'm squishy soft,  I'm a closet red or the voice of  the people hasn't been heard.  The issue to which I refer is the  proposal of the Clark government to boycott the Olympics.  It appears that there has been a  mad rush en the part of every  public official from prime  minister to School Board  trustee (in Saanich on the  Island), to wrap our collective  selves in the flag in a fit of  patriotic fervour over the  subject ofthe Olympic Games.  As a matter of fact I haven't  heard one supporter of the  boycott who believes that  politics has any part whatever  in the Olympics. But with  typical semantic deftness, these  Windworld  A wind cold as ghosts  rattles through dead bamboo  out of the talltale north  hisses from tombstone plateaus  into the mainsails of day.  Some few birds fling  through the hardbreathing tempest  small salutes  of soaring acknowledgement.  This is a country of unquiet skies  like chill thoughts  scrubbed so blue by winter  that even clouds  huddle behind the snowshocked peaks.

Imagine, if you will for a  moment, an Olympic athlete;  as healthy and clean living a  physical speciman as you're  likely to find. For sake, of  argument, let's make our  Olympic athlete one of'!;- girls  on the Canadian Olympic svim  team. She's about 17 or. 18  years old. She's been training  for her one shot al the Olympics for 10 years. In 1976 she  was too young; in 1984she'llbe  loo old. This girl swims five  hours a day, six days a week,  she spends three months away  from home every year at swim  meets. She trains so hard she  hurts all the time; she doesn't  have time for much of a social  life; her nerves are so tense  before a meet she gets physically ill; her school work isn't what  it ought to be. Why does she  put up with all this nonsense?  Because just once in her life she  wants lo be better at something  than anyone else in the world!  She wants an Olympic medal.  For just one chance at it she has  worked and sacrificed more  than half of her life.  So! Who's going to take thjs  chance away from our swimmer, or our sprinter, or shot-  putter? Are they going to lose  their chance because of superior opponents? The simple fact  is that these athletes arc being  sacrificed by politicians for the  most crass and cynical reasons  of political expediency and not  one of the political cowards has  had the nerve to argue against  the boycott.  Now. granted, I am not a  particularly patriotic person, in  fact to be honest I despise  patriotism. It's wicked, evil and  corrupt to my way of thinking.  On the other hand I don't have  much lime for the Russian  government either; in most  cases it's just as sinister as any  other totalitarian mob���maybe  more so since they claim to use  their methods in a just course.  What I am for, however, is a  chance for athletes���theirs,  ours, or anybody else's to  compete in what they're good  at.

To be continued.  If you asked a composer  what he was writing about  when he wrote a piece of music,  he would probably look at you  with disgust and walk away.  Music, the "universal language" speaks for itself and  does not need verbal or visual  interpretation to communicate  to an audience.  Yet, the idea of inviting a  mime and dancer to give their  interpretation of certain pieces  I have known and loved for  many years and to, possibly,  illuminateccrtain aspects of the  music to myself and the  audience, seemed particularly  attractive to me. (Besides, truth  be known, I thought il might  prove lo be a lot of fun, which  has certainly been the case.)  On Sunday.

Shown  will be selected serigraphs by  Toni Onley and sculptures by  Jim Krieger.  Onley's work features twelve  serigraphic, or silkscreencd  prints from the permanent  collection ofthe Vancouver Art  Gallery, and this presentation  from the Extension Department of thai Gallery offers a  view of Onley's familiar lyrical  abstract landscapes.  Onley, 50, is one of B.C.'s  most prolific artists and one of  the few who has mastered  virtually every possible two  dimensional medium including  watercolours. drawings, sumi,  collage, oils, acrylics, etchings,  lithographs, and serigraphs.  The works in this exhibition  reflect his many years of  exploration, and discovery, as  "a collector of unfathomable  and unforgettable bits of visual  knowledge".  A major retrospective held at  the Vancouver Art Gallery in  1978 honoured his 32 year  career and was the most recent  ol over 75 one-man and group  shows  in  which  he  lias ex  hibited. His works arc represented in numerous private  collections, and can be seen in  the National Gallery of Canada, the Tate Gallery, London,  the Victoria and Albert Museum, and all major Canadian  galleries.  This exhibition is being  brought to town free of charge  with the assistance of the  British Columbia Cultural  Fund, the Western Canada  Lottery Foundation, and the  National Museums Corpora-  lions of Canada.  Sharing the gallery with  Onley are sculptures by Roberts Creek artist. Jim Krieger.  A look at Jim's work reveals a  serious and committed artist  who is aware ofthe marvellous  effects offered by the three  dimensional object.  Jim studied history at University in the late sixties and  found himself in 1969 at the  Handcraft House in North  Vancouver studying pottery���  in reality a form of sculpture  itself. The same year he carved  out his first sculpture in wood.

A fine concert  by Allan Crane  I heard another fine concert  today (Sunday, February 10)  marred by the limitations  imposed on performers and  audiences by the indifferent  piano which is the best available here and the lifeless  accoustics and cold atmosphere (literally and figuratively) of the cafeteria at  Elphinstone Secondary School  which is presently the only  place where performers involving piano can feasibly take  place.  Perhaps before the expiration of another decade, the  Sunshine Coast will be able to  lay claim to facilities in which  its residents can take pride and  which will do justice to the  many fine performing artists  available to us because of our  proximity to Vancouver as well  as to our growing audiences for  "classical" music. In the meantime, I suppose we will have to  tolerate make-shift facilities  with as much grace as we can  muster. It would help, though,  if the noisy buzzing and  flickering of the lights could  receive attention from the  appropriate authorities before  the concerts were presented,  Seventy people came to hear  Polish pianist Pawel Checinski  perform, and they were treated  to a dazzling display of musical  virtuosity in selections by  Beethoven, Chopin, Scriabin  and Rachmainoff. This was a  nicely contrasted programme.  The pianist did not sound  comfortable with the Beethoven Les Adieu Sonata until  the final movement. Perhaps he  was nervous at the beginning of  the concert, or his concentration may have been affected  by the adverse circumstances  under which he was perform-  ing. He seemed much more at  ease with the Chopin B minor  Sonata (op. 58) and he achieved  an effective contrast between  the dazzling pyrotechnics ofthe  scherzo movement and the  soaring cantabile lyricism of  the following largo movement.  After the intermission, Pawel  Checinski treated the audience  to nine varied etudes by the  strange Russian composer  Scriabin who died in 1915.  Scriabin was an innovator who  saw music as a total experience  and specified coloured lights  for some of his compositions  long before the days of stroboscope lights and psychedelic  effects.  The pianist's final offering  consisted of three preludes by  Rachmaninoff, and the powerful bass and scintillating technical display in the final of  these, the B flat major Prelude,  seemed to be a case of leaving  the best to the last for a fitting  conclusion to an enjoyable  concert.  General Notes: A third week  trend of reckless activities and  impulsive behaviour commences.  At this time, the Sun squares  rebellious Uranus whilst communications planet Mercury  opposes an irresponsible Mars/  Jupiter conjunction. It's going  to be a noisy week of thoughtless conversations and selfish  actions. Completion of important documents should not be  rushed.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)  Social life becomes noisy,  irresponsible, impulsive. Reckless pursuit of pleasure spells  danger. Rich mixture of bodze  and gasoline backfires.

Off the shelf  by John Moore  It has been suggested that, in  the last decade, virtually half of  the population of Cambodia  has died. Nobody knows for  sure. Once a bastion of neutrality in troubled Indochina,  Cambodia has all but ceased to  exist as a nation, it has become  a shattered society of refugees.  In the estimation of the Carter  Administration this small  nation has the distinction of  being the worst human rights  situation anywhere in the  world. Ironically, it is a  situation for which previous  U.S. governments have been  almost entirely responsible.  The nature ane extent of that  responsibility is the subject of  William Shawcross's book  Side-Show (Pocket Books,  1979, $2.95).  The title refers to the esteem  in which those two giants of  American foreign policy, Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger, held this neighbour of  Vietnam. They and their generals referred to it as "a sideshow", a police action undertaken for the sc!e purpose of  making their policy of "Viet-  namization" and gradual withdrawal of American troops  from Vietnam workable. If  Vietnam was an unjust war, it is  difficult to imagine an epithet  to describe what happend in  Cambodia.  Obscured by the more dramatic events next door, Cambodia did not make headlines in  the public mind until 1970,  when American and South  Vietnamese forces invaded  Eastern Cambodia to destroy  Viet Cong and North Vietnamese "sanctuaries" using the  neutrality of Cambodia for  protection. Their targets were  not only the enemy's lines of  supply and communication,  but a comple- known as  "COSVN", thought to be a  giant system of concrete underground bunkers capable of  housing up to five, thousand  Communist officers, strategists  and technicians; the nerve  center headquarters of the  enemy.  COSVN was never found, let  alone destroyer* '��� did not exist  and probably never had existed  except in the minds of American generals, saddled with a  war they did not understand  and could not win, seeking an  excuse or perhaps dreaming of  a lucky knocko t punch that  would flatten a phantom  "Guerilla Pentagon" and grant  them "Peace with Honour".  The invasion of Cambodia,  though it was quickly halted by  public outrage and Congressional insistence, had one  tangible effect. Previously the  guerillas and the North Vietnamese had only marginally  violated Cambodian neutrality, moving men and supplies  down a system of trails just  inside the border, avoiding  direct confrontations with the  Cambodians. Prince Sihanouk,  trying to preserve the independence and neutrality of his  country, accommodated them  to some extent. Sandwiched  between the Thais and Vietnamese, both of whom harboured traditional racial and  historical grudges against  Cambodia, he could do little  else. Communism had made  very minimal inroads in Cambodian society itself. But the  invasion of 1970 had the effect  of driving the Communists  westward, to secure their lines  of supply, until they had swept  over half the country. Sihanouk was overthrown while  abroad on a visit to Moscow  and Peking and replaced by  Lon Nol, a man who had all the  Prince's faults and none of his  virtues. The Prince, ironically,  made a brief comeback as the  mascot of his former opponents the Khmer Rouge, the  Cambodian communists, who  grew in power as the side-  effects, of the "side-show",  massive indiscriminate bombings, extensive rape, looting  and murder of civilians by  South Vietnamese raiders, etc.  politicized the peasants, the  eventual victory of the Khmer  Rouge resulted in the whispered stories of mass-murder  and totalitarian represssion  emerging from the refugee  camps across the Thai border,  where the bulk of Cambodians  now appear to reside, and the  re-invasion of Cambodia by  Vietnamese forces.  How did all this happen?  How did a side-show police  action escalate until it destroyed a whole nation? Shaw-  cross documents the destruction of Cambodia with excruciating precision. It seems to  begin with COSVN, the idea  that while Americans were  dying in the muck, the enemy  leaders were sitting just across  the river thumbing their noses.  On this premise, President  Nixon, in collusion with then  National Security Adviser  Kissinger, authorized the seer'.t  bombing of these "sanctuaries".  The bombings, coming at a  time when the President was  trying to acquire points at  home for "winding down the  war", were so secret that  military mission-records were  deliberately faked, recording  attacks against Vietnamese  targets that were just inside the  border, but of no military  value. This had the effect of  eroding and demoralizing the  fundamental military institution of the Air Force. The  military may keep its records  Top Secret indefinitely, but it  does not juggle the books.  When the bombings failed to  do the trick, if in fact they could  ever have done so, the stage for  the invasion was set.  The most revealing aspects  of Side-Show are the chapters  which deal with the domestic  results of foreign policy. We are  treated to a behind-the-scenes  glimplse of just how Nixon and  Kissinger systematically violated the Constitution of the  United States, not to mention  the rights of other nations.  Using General Alexander  Haig, Kissinger forged a direct  link between the President,  himself, and the Joint Chiefs of  the Pentagon, deliberately  subverting and misleading the  Secretary of State and the  Secretary of Defense wherever  possible. Among his liberal  friends and advisors from  Harvard, Kissinger justified the  domestic suppression of the  Left by saying that demonstrations and protests would only  arouse the radical Right and  perhaps lead to an aggressive  totalitarian government at  home. When he had to choose  between the President and his  liberal friends, who called him  on the carpet over the invasion  of Cambodia, he chose the  President, thus depriving the  government of all its top-level  liberal advisors at a stroke. The  President he chose was a man  who seriously believed that the  only justification he needed to"  wage undeclared war on  another nation was the  mandate of his own reflection.  As one reporter observed, "By  that logic, he could bomb  Boston."  The backroom condur* of  foreign affairs led to the  problem of "leaks", like that of  the Pentagon Papers, and thus  began the violations of  domestic civil rights which  culminated in the Watergate  scandal and the resignation of  the President.

Some cheering news  by Joan Hueslis Foster  February is a month of drab  repose. 1 know it to be a  necessary month because without its foggy soporific 'manana'  weeks we would be unable to  properly gird our loins for  spring. February is a sleepy and  an often self-induced, fluey  month. The Christmas bills are  paid and if it weren't for bloody  Hydro, February would be an  inexpensive month. Actually  the month is usually a colossal  but comfy bore, necessary but  non-creative.  This February was no different until I heard the good  news about John Moore, my  literary companion on this  page. Normally I am not prone  to comment on my cohort's  prestige or the temper of his  work but not being a halfway  person I will simply say that I  adore John Moore's book  reviews. Rarely does Moore  pick up the latest best seller to  review; instead he rampages  through used book shops or  any handy library in much the  same way as the old lady with  both the war in Indochina and  Washington, D.C., during the  Sixties and Seventies. His  reporting is clear, extensively  documented, and utterly  depressing. Read it and weep.  All for now.  the hat pin marks her ballot.  His manic depradations on  local libraries produce literary  reviews on everything from the  classics to Canada Council  inspired porn.  The reason 1 am so fond of  John Moore is that he reviews  the way I read, with no guidelines and as his free spirit  moves. His style is his own and  is, to my mind, marvellous. He  sends me back to the library to  re-read old books. A small  orange bird has informed me  that John Moore is moving to  the Sunshine Coast and so I am  flinging out a patchwork carpet  to welcome him. It's been in the  paper, John, so you know it to  be true. Backing out will not be  tolerated. WELCOME and  BONNE CHANCE. We need  you. Imagine that!

Coast News, February 12, 1980  Harbingers of Spring  Maryanne's viewpoint  by Maryanne West  Going to the Post Office last  week the cheerful whistle of a  Redwing Blackbird caught my  ey r. They are, 1 suppose, a more  reliable harbinger of spring  than ihe traditional robin.

Though I haven't yet seen a  seagull decked out in hisjaunty  white summer cap, those grey  balaclavas they wear all winter  begin to look tatty and some  are unravelling fast. Some of  the sounds of spring assail us.  It's difficult to miss the frogs if  you live near a pond or water-  lillcd ditch, but others arc more  subtle and have to be listened  for. The raucous Stellar Jays  come spring and courtship  croon lo each other in soft  uncharacteristic lones. I've  heard one trying out a few  lender sounds. Loons too,  silent all winter, begin with  some experimental calls, tuning  up with gentle melodic notes.  The pileated woodpecker's  yaffle which rings through the  woods is now answered by a  mate who is feeding nearby and  in another month the woods  will echo as they and the  flickers drum merrily on anything which will amplify the  sound.  There haven't been many  winter wrens along the beach  this winter and I haven't yet  heard that cascade of joyous,  triumphant song with which  the male greets every passerby,  perched atop a bush near a  suitable nesting site; a tiny ball  of feathers barely as big as a  golf ball, yet producing a  volume of sound which, if  you're unfamiliar with the  cadence, makes you look for a  much larger bird.  Somehow it's re-assuring in a  world which always seems to be  teetering on the brink of some  new crisis that the Redwing  Blackbirds return each year  and one can rely on the  snowdrops to push up through  the soil to greet the spring  sunshine.  Television workshop  February 22, Friday, students are free to roam the  countryside while their teachers have a professional  development day.  At Elphinstone one event on  T.V.���hosting is open to the  local residents who are interested in becoming involved in  local T.V. programming.  Mrs. Marta McKown teaches a course in Communication for high school students.  This includes different aspects  of T.V. programming, and  students learn everything from  use of cameras and lighting to  script writing and evaluation. It  also includes interview techniques and how to host a  successful T.V. program.  With the increasing use of  video tapes in education and  entertainment the demand for  quality products is increasing  and a good host is a must for  any T.V. program involving  people.  Bert Nelson will be the  facilitator of this 1-day workshop on February 22, Friday,  900-1600 h, in the T.V. studio  at Elphinstone (Room 119).  Bert Nelson was a C.B.C.  announcer until he moved to  the Sunshine Coast a few years  ago.  He now freelances oc  casionally and is the host ofthe  Pioneer Tapes, which have been  shown on the local Cablevision  Channel 10 several times. It is a  marvellous piece of Sunshine  Coast history and Bert Nelson  approached the pioneers with  sensitivity and honesty.  The workshop is entirely  devoted to the techniques of  interviewing and participants  will spend the morning viewing  samples of different types of  hosting and discuss ways and  means to make honest and  imaginative interviews. There  will be no formal lecture, but  Bert Nelson will help participants to focus on different  approaches to interviewing.  In the afternoon three students will interview a local  politician and the class will  discuss the taped presentations  and thereby gain some insight  into meaningful interview  techniques and into their own  individual ways of approaching  this subject.  There is no fee for this  workshop.  For registration and further  information about this workshop please call 885-3512,  Continuing Education.  Karin Hoemberg  mt  *m  WESTERN ALUMINUM LTD.

This political and military  chess game must be viewed  with alarm. As a concerned  spectator, I have been compelled to think.  Morale has always been a  sticky problem for the military  brass. There is no doubt, that a  fighting unit with high morale  is far superior to a unit with low  morale. In all previous major  conflicts, a large number of  patriotic citizens have been  ignored. This shameful discrimination has been caused by  regulations far loo stringent.  Age and physical restrictions  have kept many a true patriot  from making sacrifices that he  or she would have gladly made.  What to do about it? That is Ihe  question. I have devised apian.  It is of a psychological nature.  This plan has never been tried  before, in the history of  warfare.  I propose the formation of a  new, special force. All age and  physical requirements will be  waived. No longer will wealth,  age or social status be a barrier  against enlistment.  This new force will be called  the Civilian Patriotic Corps,  CPC for short. The sole  purpose of this new organization will be to promote morale  and dedication. Unit badges  and appropriate uniforms will  be designed and issued.  Members of the CPC will go  along for the ride only. No  combat duties will be performed. I suggest that one  member be in every tank and  one in every troop carrier. All  bombers should carry two  members. The Navy, due to the  availability   of  space,  could  carry a,far greater number. The  paratroops could avail themselves of the younger and more  fit of the personnel. Ground  combat units would ask for  volunteers. In the unlikely  event of a shortage of volunteers, draft legislation would be  in place.  As the bastion of the free  world, the U.S. would be  offered the plan first. Other free  nations could follow, with their  own variations or modifications. Where do the recruits for  the "Civilian Patriotic Corps"  come from'.' Lei me explain.  All defeated presidential  candidates wilh a hawkish  stance would be pressured to  join. Let us hope for the defeat  of Ronnie Reagan. Doves, if  any, would be granted special  status.  Senators Goldwater, Long  and Jackson would make ideal  corpsmen.  One congressman and one  senator from each State would  be desireable.  Presidents and senior executives of all large corporations  would be drafted. Especially  those in the war and oil related  industries.  Prominent members of the  Ku Klux Klan and the John  Birch Society would be eagerly  sought after. William F. Buckley would be a choice acquisition. Top labour leaders and  their executives would be  expected to volunteer.  Let us not be chauvinistic,  women should be allowed full  participation in the CPC.  Clair Booth Luce and Shirley  Temple Black, come to mind.  Oh, what the hell! Let's make it  a holy war. Billy Graham, Oral  Roberts, Ernest Angley and  Rex Humbard would insure  that God was on our side. To be  fair, and for balance, a goodly  f Lucy  Heaven as I ever expect to see.

That  light should have been flashing  its warning al us before now,  but as I had some flap on lo  slow us down and the throttle  backed off almostjo stalling  point my timing co~ld have  been off. We had to pass the  light on our starboard wing and  a miscue could put us tip a blind  channel and into (he trees. I  was about to give up in despair  and land on Ihe waterwhen we  both saw it at once. "There it  is!" shouted Lucy. .'  "Yee-up." 1 replied nonchalantly, hoping to reassure her  with my casual approach to  such a grim business. But I was  sure wishing I could psyche my  boiling sea, the huge swell|#f Vn,t0 infinity, protected on both  the open Pacific Ocean piling    s'��es bY mountainous barriers  piling  mighty breakers onto the  shores of the exposed islands.  With the gale behind us we  mus'PffifVe been hurtling along  at 200 miles per hour. Susan  Island was still wrapped in  clouds that were swirling  around her mountains and  trees as the wind sucked the  vapottrfrom the coastal ranges,  down the long inlets and  reaches, and strung them out in  long lacy tendrills of tattered  mists, to blend with the spray of  crashing seas. There was not a  sigh "of a break in that for-  biddwg shoreline. Nothing but  tumbling, shredded, ripped  apart clouds!  I was just beginning to turn  away in deep despair of where  next.to look when suddenly I  caught a glimpse of blue. I  turned toward it, hardly able to  believe my eyes, but there it  was. Susan Lagoon. And the  Gate was open! Yes, it was as  much, like the Pearly Gates to  to the storm, welcoming us in  like the open arms of our  Guardian Angel! In seconds,  we were out of the maelstrom  and settling on the quiet waters,  our little bird seeming to ruffle  her feathers and preen her  wings, as much as to say, "It  was a battle, and I took a  beating, but I brought you  safely through it all!" I nodded,  pulled at a couple of cabin  braces, then patted the cowl  lovingly.  I shut down the engine as we  turned slowly on the water. We  looked toward our Pearly  Gates but they had closed as we  had entered, shutting out the  sound and fury of the storm  outside. As the peace and  tranquillity of that iovaJto-;  lagoon flooded in on us, the  tensions and strains of the last  hour drained slowly out.  We had spoken no word  since landing, each absorbed  in thoughts of our own, hating  to break the magic silence as we  floated peacefully on the quiet  water.  But finally, the soft voice of  Lucy brought us once more  back to reality as she quoted  the old and familiar definition  of flying; "Hours and hours of  boredom, punctuated by moments of sheer terror!"

Coast News, February 12,1980  On becoming a Rover  Ramblings of a Rover  Harmony Hall  by Dee Cee  I sincerely hope that I never  have   to   undergo   again   an  experience like the one on the  6th of June 1926 when the S.S.  Alaunia  finally  docked  at  Quebec City. I know that at the  time it really scared the hell out  of me yet in retrospect it had its  hilarious  moments and they  were  provided, naturally, by  the irrepressible Arthur whom  I am sure really enjoyed every  moment of it. To this day I have  often wondered where the first-  class passengers disembarked  as we saw absolutely no sign of  them.   Whether   Ihey   were  spirited  off during the early  hours   of  the   morning  and  whisked away to their various  destinations   in    their   Rolls  Royces, Daimlers or Bentleys I  will never know, but 1 do recall  vividly the processing of the  third-class and tourist sections.  As soon as we descended the  various   gangways   we   were  ushered into what appeared to  be a huge shed or warehouse,  which at first glance might have  been mistaken as having been  designed as a holding unit for  new arrivals for the locals zoos  as   it   was   divided   into   an  assortment of compartments or  sections all enclosed with heavy  steel meshed wire. This meshed  wire ran from floor to ceiling  giving the occupants no possible hope of escape  The girls with their chaper-  ones, both British and French,  were placed in several of these  large cages as were some ofthe  male immigrants who were  destined to work on Canadian  farms. I have never ascertained  if it had been the ship's officers  or the chapcrones who had  filed a complaint but Arthur  and I, as soon as we stepped  ashore, were singled out for  what we thought was preferential treatment and placed in a  smaller cage all by ourselves.  At first Arthur was quite  pleased about this not having  to rub shoulders, as he put it,  with the common herd, after all  he was an Earl's son and so it  befitted his station in life to be  regarded as slightly above  those unfortunates of lowlier  birth.  However we weren't in the  cage very long before both he  and 1 were in for a rude shock  as to the real reason for our  being apart from the others.  Two sour looking officials, one  long, lean and cadaverous and  the other equally serious of  mien but shorter, entered the  cage and, after giving us an  appraisal almost as if wc were  two extremely rare species of  fauna recently live-trapped in  the sweltering jungles of the  Amazon or possibly the upper  reaches of the Nile, they  proceeded with the business on  hand. The shorter of the two  was weighed down with an  assorlnui of ledgers and  documents and, selecting one,  the "corpse" began with a  distinctly French accent, to  read from it some rigmarole  pertaining to the word turpitude and how ii affected our  status in entering or attempting  to enter this fair land of  Canada. I was under the  ���iprcssion I had received a fair  i ..ation and so for that  matter had Arthur, but neither  of us knew what in the hell the  word turpitude meant or how it  applied to us. The only word I  could think of at the moment as  remotely resembling it was  turpentine and for the life of me  I couldn't conjure up any  relation to paint thinner with  the serious matter under discussion.  While Arthur and I were still  groping in the fog the "corpse"  selected another volume and,  after rifling through its pages,  commenced reading Section so  and so, Paragraphs such and  such   from   the   Immigration  Sunco  Printing  FOR ALL YOUR  PRINTING NEEDS  886-7614  Act. While I listened in amazement to his recital of all the  things contained in this particular   Section  of the  Act,  including convictions for rape,  sodomy, incest, indecent assault and so on, it was as if  Arthur had suddenly experienced an electric shock as he  was galvanized into life and  eally let loose on these two  unfortunate   officials.   After  first identifying himself as the  Earl of C's son, he demanded to  know not only their names but  their  addresses   and   assured  them thai he would see to it  personally that the Earl was  made aware of Iheir temerity in  subjecting his heir lo such vile  and  inconsiderate  treatment.  I Ic implied that their respective  jobs were in jeopardy from that  moment on. Before the dumbfounded   pair  could   recover  from this blast  Arthur then  launched into a long harangue,  presumably addressed to me  but for their edification, into  the requirements necessary to  obtain a position in the Civil  Service, claiming that they were  all of low intelligence and in  order to be a successful applicant to be a mental defective,  although not imperative, was  definitely an asset. From this he  switched abruptly to the particular paragraph they had been  reading regarding rape, sodomy etc., and declared loudly  that whoever composed such a  list  must   have  had  an  uncommonly   gross  and   filthy  mind and that he had no doubt  he must have been a Frenchman,   as   in   his  considered  opinion all  Frenchmen were  perverts and always had been.  Arthur then went off at a  tangent and started on a long  discourse about the Plains of  Abraham and the respective  merits of Montcalm and Wolfe  as generals and pinpointed the  reason for the French defeat on  their laissez faire attitude. He  described the battle in such  vivid detail it was almost as if  he had been one of the participants  but,  as  the  story  developed, it turned out (so he  claimed) that the Earl's ances  tors had distinguished themselves on the heights of Quebec  and once again (according to  him) his father was not only a  personal confidant of King  George but on a first name  basis with him and that his  influence could carry him not  only up the steps to the throne  but beyond into the inner  sanctum ofthe palace. Privately I was of ihe opinion, having  heard Arthur's accounts of his  father's colourful sex life, that  the Queen would be well  advised to lock her bedroom  door if the randy old goal (as  Arthur called him) was on the  premises.  The upshot of all this was  thai, under Arthur's onslaught  and possibly over-awed by his  attack, the two discomfittcd  immigration officials retreated,  presumably lo confer with  higher authority on what  action should be taken with  these two unpredictable characters in Cage No. 4. While I  fretted and worried about what  would eventually happen and  tortured myself with thoughts  of my parents' concern should I  be returned to the Old Country  as a persona non grata,  Arthur amused himself each  time someone came in proximity to our cage by rushing  over and shaking the fence,  meanwhile making hideous  faces at them and, in general,  behaving like a lunatic.  It seemed to me like ages had  passed before the same two  officials rc-appeared and, still  grave and sombre, beckoned us  to follow them. At the exit of  the shed we were required to  produce our landing cards  before passing through the  turnstile where a ponderous  looking hulk of a man stamped  them and waved us through!  Eureka! We had made it!  Now we had the whole of  Canada at our feet, but the first  and most important thing was  to get on that train to Montreal  where, you may be sure with  Arthur as my mentor and  guide, further adventwes-tvere  in store!  by Irene Bushfield  The snow we had early in  January, though it wasn't  around for long, interfered  with some of the activities at  Harmony Hall. For one thing  we had to cancel the Public  Bingo on Thursday Night; do  hope no one was inconvenienced! However, it is back in  full swing again and we are  having good turn outs but there  is still room for more. If you are  interested the first game starts  at 7:45 p.m. and the jackpot is  $100.  Our Monday afternoon socials with Bingo are proving to  be very popular. These take  place on the second and third  Monday of the month at 2 p.m.  so the next one will be on  February 11, followed by one  on the 18.  We usually reserve the last  Saturday of the month for our  Pot Luck Suppers but this  month, because the hall is  rented out on that date, we are  holding it on the last Friday,  that is, the 29th of February.  Our last one turned out to be a  real banquet with a wide  variety of well cooked meals.  Afterwards we split up into  groups, one group played pool,  another played crib, and the  rest participated in a Whist  Tournament. Something different was added this time  when Ed Connor showed slides  of some of the exciting places  he and Molly have visited, such  as Mt. McKinley in Alaska,  caves in New Zealand, the  Opera House in Australia,  flowers in Hawaii and some  local views, A most interesting  and entertaining presentation,  we appreciated Ed sharing  these with us.  A very special event this  month is a Valentine Dinner  coming up on Friday, February  IS at the Gibsons Legion Hall.  This annual event is organized  and financed by the Ladies  Auxiliary of the Gibsons Royal  Canadian Legion for the Senior  Citizens in the community.  They serve a delightful dinner  with music and dancing afterwards all for a token charge of a  percentage of the value.  The next special event we can  look forward to at Harmony  Hall is an evening dance on  Saturday, April 19 with music  supplied by Bill Malyea, our  most popular Master of Ceremonies, and will most likely  include a pot-luck supper.  Details have to be worked  out for our Spring Sale but the  date is set for Saturday, April  26 in the afternoon in Harmony  Hall. Gladys Coates, our  President, will be convenor of  the sale and will be looking for  donations to the plant stall,  bake table and arts and crafts.  A trip to whistler Mountain  has been arranged for Wednesday, May 14. We will be leaving  Gibsons by bus catching the 9  a.m. ferry. There will be stop  overs at Shannon Falls, Bran-  dywine Falls and Squamish.  We'll be having lunch at the Inn  in the Whistler Mountain area  of Garibaldi Park.

At our Activity Session  (which occurs the first Thursday of the month) we worked  with beads and wire. At our  next session we plan to complete a quilt and start on felt  work. I would remind everyone  that we use and re-cycle lots of  items in these sessions including junk jewelry, candles,  clear plastic sheets (stiff),  stamps, white cardboard, and  Nabob coupons. We also need  plastic containers with lids in  our kitchen, these come with  margarine, cottage cheese, etc.,  so please don't throw these  items away.

All membership  renewals should be made at  that time but if you cannot  make it to the meeting phone  Ted Dinsley at 886-7487 and he  will arrange it by mail.  Skaters!

Inglis  Sunshine Coast  " United Churches  As the world becomes a  global village, with inter-  coniinental travel cut down to a  matter of hours and worldwide communications cut  dowjj: lo seconds, it becomes  necessary to be well-versed in  cultures and societies that were  practically alien areas of  knowledge one generation ago,  in order to do business suc-  !  ccssfully.  !      Firms which formerly manu-  ���   factured articles for consump-  |   lion on the North American  t  continent,   suddenly   find   it  j- necessary to learn about topo-  l  graphy, climatological condi-  I   lions, educational standards,  !  otc. in countries on the other  ,  side of the globe, and in order  I  to complete the revolution in  I   knowledge,  they must  learn  how to develop an effective and  convincing dialogue with peoples of other social mores, and  political ideologies, other  ethical standards���and other  religious convictions.  There is probably no other  institution in the world today  which is quite so bound by  necessity  to  engage  in  this  global  inter-play than the  Christian : church,   which   is  commanded by its founder to:  "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing  them in the name ofthe Father  and of the Son, and ofthe Holy  Spirit." (Matthew 28:19, RSV).  And there is no institution in  the world which has laboured  harder than the Christian  church,  to bring about this  commandment ol Jesus Christ,  j the founder of the Christian  j church. In the spirit of this text,  | millions of Christian men and  | women have given up their lives  ; to labour among peoples of  j alien cultures, strange tongue,  sometimes barbaric customs.  These disciples have exposed  ;themselves to all manner of  ^dangers, excessive climates,  and diseases, carrying the word  of love and salvation. There are  epitaphs to their bravery and  dedication in every corner of  the globe, and there are many  Tine Christians who owe their  lives and their salvation to  these heralds of the gospel, but  the church is looking at the  manner of performing this life-  giving task, and there appear to  be many questions being asked  today by the emerging nations  that were unheard of when the  Christian missions first became  active on the world scene.  The types of questions being  asked may vary widely, but  many of them centre on  establishing a relationship  between the deity which they  have worshipped for centuries,  and the deity which the missionaries hold up as the  exclusive saviour of the world.  In many cases, this problem is  compounded by the fact that  the indigenous hearers of the  gospel worship a plurality of  deities.  This problem is not new, but  it is becoming much more acute  as the emerging nations become more sophisticated and  articulate in defending their  indigenous culture and religion. The mainline churches,  with the sponsorship of the  World Council of Churches,  are spear-heading a sweeping  program of education of the  Christian church in the subject  of world religion's, and the  creation of purposeful and long  overdue "inter-faith dialogue".

Unfortunately, it has been  the practice in past times for  some missionaries to fail to  communicate anything other  than the thought that they were  bringing  something  magnifi  cent and desirable, to the  exclusion pf all of the institutions and culture of the indigenous peoples. Many of the  missionaries were naive enough  to be|ieve that the gospel  message should be accompanied by a Graeco-Roman culture  ethic as well.  As the culture gap between  east and west is narrowed by  the power of global communications, so the need for  understanding the faith which  is at the core of the human  being���as a preface to bridging  the chasm of racial, political,  ethical, moral and social  differences���becomes the new  dynamic in the relationship  between man and his god(s).  And the urgency of this inter-  faith dialogue as a catalyst for  world peace and tranquility is  heightened daily by the strife  and unrest in the middle east  and in Pakistan, where undertones of oil-based power and  overtones of fierce religious  incompatibility make it vital  that men and women of good  faith and conviction meet in  honest and open dialogue to  determine some meeting  ground of faith.  It is also vital that the  religious beliefs of all sides to  the dialogue be honoured, and  given credence in these discussions, whether they be held in  public forums or in more  personal, small group talks.  Nor can these dialogue sessions  be  held effectively  in  the  western world exclusively, but  must occur in the various  regions where the major religions ofthe world are centred.  To this end, the World  Council of Churches is certainly to be commended for its  activities in inter-faith dialogue  with religions of the far cast,  and for some of its comprehensive publications on the subject. However, this is only the  beginning, and there is a  tremendous task ahead in  repairing the rifts in humanit)  that began, according to Christian faith, as the result of man's  arrogance (Genesis 11:8,9).  The swiftly-changing face of  the world is stepping up the  necessity  for  this  inter-faith  Coast News, February 12, 1980  dialogue, also, as whole communities have been inundated  by displaced persons from  Asia.

Hi * I ���  It's hearts and flowers lime again when our fancies  apparently turn to love. If you're interested in cooking,  maybe your fancy turns to enticing him or her with your  culinary skills so why not be frivolous in your kitchen. Get  yourself some heart shaped pans and cutters. Make heart  shaped cookies decorated wilh pink icing���and maybe the  odd loving word piped on! Get a heart shaped pan. I bought  one tiie other day with a super cheese cake recipe called  Coeur a la creme. Why not heart shaped croutons  floating in your soup or sitting in your salad!  Last Thursday 1 listened to Three's Company on  C.B.C. Radio especially to hear Susan Mendelsohn who's  on every Thursday giving interesting recipes. For Saint  Valentine's Day she suggested a marinated salad involving  hearts of palm, artichoke hearts, hearts of lettuce, plus  some other exotica. Send off to: Susan's Recipes  Three's Company,  C.B.C. Radio,  700 Hamilton Street,  Vancouver, B.C.  Saint Valentine's Day is traditionally when the birds begin  to mate so why not try this for a symbol of fertile love.  Egg Appetiser ��� for two  2 hartlcooked eggs pinch of paprika  4 un< fioi'v fillets salt and pepper  1 tablespoon mayonnaise 2 lettuce leaves  Shell the eggs and cut oil lop and bottom so the eggs will  stand up. Carefully remove the yolks from the broad end of  the egg this is a labour of love remember! Mash the yolks,  and blend wilh two chopped anchovy fillets, seasoning and  mayonnaise. Stuff gently back into egg whites, place on  itture leaves and garnish with remaining anchovy fillets.  Powdered rhinoceros horn is hard to get but oysters are  supposed to produce the same effect. How about Angels  on Horseback. Wrap a slice of bacon round an oyster.  Skewer with a toothpick, sprinkle with a little lemon juice  and just a touch of cayeene. Broil or bake in the oven till the  bacon is crisp then serve on a heart shaped piece of  buttered toast.  Oncejupon a time chocolate was said to have the same  effect as oysters���I suppose it's a case of a little of what you  believe doing you a power of good! How about finishing off  your candlelight and wine dinner for two with a  Chocolate Mousse  2 squares semi-sweet chocolate, cut up  2 tablespoons water  1 tablespoon margarine  2 egg yolks  I tablespoon rum  1 teaspoon vanilla  2 egg whites  1 tablespoon sugar  whipped cream  Melt the chocolate and water in a double boiler. Add the  margarine gradually and stir in well. Add the egg yolks, stir  for about three minutes until the mixture is thick. Remove  from heat and stir in rum, vanilla and sugar. Cool. Beat the  egg whites till stiff and fold gently into the chocolate mix.  Place in your best crystal glasses and chill. Decorate with  whipped cream.  Happy Valentine's Day!

SlMCkP TALK  by Bill Edney  ^  On The Funny Side  In life's most serious moments we can oft times see the funny side. I  spend most of my time at home these days as nursemaid, cook and  dishwasher.  I have never cooked for myself, let alone for anyone else. Both of my  sons are good cooks and fond of it, but I never learned. Some of my  experiences seemed so hilarious to the rest of my family and staff  members, that I was urged to share them in Shop Talk. Instead of  Funny it makes me appear as a Dummy.  Almost everything I attempt to make means looking up instructions  in the cookbook, reducing the portions to less than two,���then doing a  mental rehearsal of all.the steps. Since I am so slow it helps to use the  microwave, where you can Zap the food with heat so quickly, it's  almost a miracle.  But cooking with a Microwave can be tricky unless you understand  all the Do's and Don't s. For instance, one morning I attempted to boil 3  eggs in a corning ware saucepan covered with a glass lid. dust as I went  to open the door to take them out, there was a loud explosion.  The lid had blown off and smashed,���and the eggs were splattered in  a fine mince on all six faces of that cube which is the Microwave Oven.  A small weak voice from the bedroom cried out,"What was that?���  Explaining what had happened, she laughed, and told me what I already  knew,���You can't do that!"  That evening I thought a change was in order from her rigid diet and  decided to make a stew. Again, for want of time, I decided to use the  SURPRISE brand Casserole vegetables along with some diced stewing  beef. The Microwave instructions were different from those on the  package, so I decided to use the best features of each.  I didn't have all the spices called for, and there are some that Joyce  can't have, so I added a couple of shakes of Oregano leaves. To get a  gravy like thickness I had to add flour and a spoonful of Bovril, but in my  haste I forgot to reduce by half the quantity of flour needed, so it turned  out rather thick and gooey.  Joyce took one taste and asked me what on earth I had put into the  stew���poultry dressing? She couldn't eat it. Well this broke me up a bit  and I blubbered that I felt somewhat akin to the stories of the young  bride whose first attempts at cooking for her beloved turned out an  utter failure.  I do like washing dishes, cleaning counter tops, stoves etc. It's simple  and re-assuring because you can see the pleasant results. After my  Microwave disaster with the eggs I quietly and calmly went about  cleaning up. The egg had blown into the ventilator slots so deeply I had  to remove the top cover and one side. But I did learn my lesson well and  truly.  And I believe with practice, I'll learn to cook, too. I rather like il!  Glassware Price Increases  Last month the manufacturers of glassware, generally, increased  their prices about 30"u.I am not aware of the reasons why there was  such a big hike at one time but it did occur. The result has been a quick  depletion of warehouse stocks at old prices, -and in many instances  the new prices are already appearing on retailers' shplves.  If you need to replenish or stock up on any of your household  glassware products, SHOP TALK advises you to do il now. We still  have shelf stocks at the Old price. In addition, each week Suzanne and 1  made some good special buys advertised elsewhere on this page. Take  advantage of them now and you will save not only 30".. but closer to 50"n  because we have shaved our normal markup.  Politics  I tell you truly I consider myself lo be one of the great number ol  people who are counted by the polslers as undecided. It's a crying  shame thai we can't come up wilh belter leaders and legislators than  those who would sacrifice our country's best interests (or political  expediency. 1 liked Maryanne West's article last week. I loo feel  insulted by those who would try to buy my vote with my own money.

Saturday evening was the all  Bergnach affair with an uncle  and two brothers involved. It  was Nick and Gerry who  prevailed as the Gibsons club  took a well played 5-3 win.  ^ynday saw the youthful  Anderson A's continue their  aggressive play winning easily  7-1   over  the  tired  looking  Haney club.  League results:  This past week saw the Cozy  Court Bruins continue their  unbeaten streak on home ice,  and put a firm grip on first  place in the SCMHL.  Leading 1-0 after one period,  the Bruins were fortunate not  to be down a half dozen, and in  the second, the A's continued  to carry the play, but had no  luck around the net. Two goals  by Jim Gray had the Bruins up  3-1 after two, and the frustration began to show as the A's  couldn't capitalize on their  many chances. Final score,  Bruins 7, A's 2.

A prayer was offered by Joan  Rigby and Secretary Pearl  Dove read the minutes of the  last meeting. Member Lenora  Inglis very kindly performed  the candlclighting ceremony  installing Jean Longley as  President, and Violet Harris as  Treasurer. The gavel was  handed over, and now we have  a full complimeni of executive  officers.  Business was then discussed.

Annie  Carpet cleaning  success story  One of the success stories  locally in recent times has been  Suncoast Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning, owned and  operated by Len Saigo. Saigo  started in operation eighteen  months ago with the Concorde  Carpet Care franchise.  "I felt there was enough need  in this area to justify a localized  company," said Saigo, pointing  out that Suncoast Carpet and  Upholstery Cleaning had expanded to the point where they  had opened their own warehouse in Sechelt for a complete  line of janitorial supplies as  well as paper goods for restaurants and other businesses.  Saigo told the Coast News  that from the beginning carpet  care had been a very viable  business on the Sunshine Coast  picking up very quickly at least  1,000 customers both commercial and domestic.  "Because we are providing a  guaranteed service we continue  to grow," said Saigo. "We are  the only cleaning outfit on the  Sunshine Coast who have an  extraction unit capable ol  combatting flooding or water  damage." He said the equipment was capable of pumping  up to 2,000 gallons an hour.  Saigo said that the cleaning  process used did not leave  chemical residue in carpets, an  important safety consideration  in homes with small children.  The basic method of cleaning  used is extraction using the  most advanced methods, twenty times more powerful than  any other method on the  market. Saigo said that nothing  was used in the process which  wasn't the very best in chemicals, equipment, and craftsmanship. The chemicals were  bio-degradablc insofar as possible.  "Our carpets are clean and  fresh and they stay that way  because of the stain guarding  wc utilize after the carpets are  clean," said Saigo. "We would j  like to express our gratitute to  our many friends and customers on the Sunshine Coast."  is in need of volunteers, both  drivers and non-drivers.  Physiotheraphy workers put  in 21 hours plus travelling time,  nd five volunteers for the  Thrift Shop worked 59 hours.  The Gift Shop and Phoning  Committee are also to be  recommended for their hard  work. One card was sent by the  Sunshine Committee.  Mrs. Thor Strand responded  to our call last month for  Nabob coupons wilh 500!  Thank you Mrs, Strand and  thank you to all the other  members who helped out.  Please keep them coming.  Marion McConnell reported  that the Auxiliary had catered  for a Lions Club dinner on  January 22 and will cater  another on February 26.  Kay Butler has offered her  home for the quilting this year,  and Annie Metcalfe will be in  charge of arrangements. Also  to be raffled with the quilt is a  lovely handmade walking Stick,  made and donated to us by Mr.  Steinbrunner, husband of our  member Dorothy. Thank you  Mr. Steinbrunner.

How to  Make Beer  by Ian Corrance  When the I.W.A. or the Post  Office goes on strike it's  serious, but when the brewing  companies go out, it's an  emergency.  This is exactly what happened to Evlyn and Hank  Neufeld in the Great Beer  Strike of '67. So rather than do  without, they started making  their own. Making your own  has two distinct advantages, it  costs less, and it tastes better. It  takes a bit of organization to  set yourself up, but once you  are, you will have a constant  supply of the bubbly elixir.  The basic equipment required (apart from a good  supply of bottles) is: a large,  stainless steel or enamel pot; a  carboy (a plastic garbage can is  ideal); two more large, fermentation containers (size depends  f&W!���;���Mr-"-*;���sr���w  on the amount of beer you are  making), these containers  should also be of glass, plastic  or stone; a siphon hose;  fermentation caps for the  containers and finally the  bottle capper and caps. Most of  this equipment, plus the following ingredients, are available in local stores. If you have  any trouble getting some of it,  then there are many Wine Art  stores that will be happy to  supply you.  The following recipe is one of  the many available. This one is  for light lager. To make a dark  beer, use a dark malt.  Ingredients for 5 gallons of  beer Vh lbs. Brewmaster extra  pale MALT; 5 imperial gallons  water; 2 oz. Brewers gold  HOPS; 'A oz. East Kent Gold-  ing Finishing HOPS; 4 lbs.  CORN SUGAR (save 2 cups  for bottling):  BEER FIN-  ib��j sf������������������  NINGS (as per vial instructions), this is a clearing agent; 1  tspn. HEADING YEAST (optional); LAGER BEER  YEAST;  Instructions:  1) In a large enamel or  stainless steel vessel, boil as  much of the brewing water as  possible.  2) Break up the compressed  hops and add to boiling water  along with the malt extract.  (Use a nylon or cheesecloth for  the hops.) Boil for one hour  uncovered, stirring occasionally.  3) Remove the hops, then pour  the hot mixture onto the sugar  and Finishing hops in the  primary fermcntor (the plastic  garbage can). Make the volume  up to 5 gallons, preferably with  boiling water, then cover with a  plastic sheet.  4) When the mixture has  cooled to around 70 degrees F.  (room temperature) add the  lager yeast culture, then watch  for fermentation to start. It  should do so in 24 hours. If you  This is the basic equipment for making your own beer.

Add the Vita-  Vin and the beer finnings then  attach the fermentation cap.  Store in a cool temperature and  wait.  6) Once the mixture has stopped  working (in about S  weeks), it's time for bottling.  Bottling Instructions:  1) Wash the bottles thoroughly, you'll need between S  and 6 dozen.  2) Siphon the beer back into  the primary fermenter, leave  behind any sediment, then add  the heating liquid.  3) Make up a syrup from a  small amount of the beer and  the 2 cups of corn sugar, that  Uncle Mick's  destroyed by  At approximately 7 a.m. on  February 8, 1980, a fire was  noted to have broken out  underneath the veranda area of  the Clive McKay residence in  Selma Park.

Store at room temperature for  one week to get the final  fermentation going.  6) Age it for at least three more  weeks before chilling and  serving.  One note of caution, the  lager is usually around 8%  alcohol content, while the stout  can be as high as 13%, so don't  be tempted into drinking vast  quantities just because it tastes  so good.  Remember that good beer is  like a good woman, it doesn't  get older, it gets better. Happy  tippling.

Coast News, February 12,1980  WE MUST PROTECT OUR FOREST JOBS,  THROUGH A FEDERAL FOREST POLICY  Did you know the forest industry earns more  dollars for Canada than agriculture, fishing,  mining and the oil industry put together? Well  the Progressive Conservative Government has  recognized this importance and has started to  put together the first federal forest policy in  Canadian history. Environment Minister John  Fraser was consulting with the forest industry  and the B.C. Government in the framing of this  new legislation whan the Budget was defeated.  Al Lazerte says the Federal Government  annually takes in many millions of dollars in  taxes from forest and pulp mill workers, and  from the forest industry in corporate taxes,  which incidentally were to be increased under  the Budget. However, says Al Lazerte, the  Federal Government to date has given back  little in return. At the same time he said, forest  resources are being developed in third world  countries, areas in which labour is cheap, and  growing conditions so different, wood can be  grown two to three times faster. Canada must  remain competitive or we will lose our foreign  markets, markets that are so important to  Canada's well-being. That Is why, said Al, the  forest and pulp workers must be consulted,  perhaps through their unions, the I.W.A. and  Pulp Workers.  ELECT A GOVERNMENT THAT SHOWS  GENUINE CONCERN FOR ITS WORKING  PEOPLE.  AL LAZERTE B PC.  FOR THE FIRST TIME,  A PROPER AIR-SEA RESCUE SERVICE  OFF THE B.C. COAST  Did you know the Clark Government has  signed a contract to put up a satellite to track  ships off our West? It's part of an all-round air-  sea rescue operation within our 200 mile limit,  that will give us complete control over all  vessels in our waters, foreign fishing craft, oil  tankers, even submarines. Another part of the  operation will soon be in place, two air-sea  rescue vessels, one at Campbell River.  ELECT A GOVERNMENT THAT GETS THE  RIGHT THINGS DONE.  AL LAZERTE QJ P.C.  THE CLARK ADMINISTRATION I  THE FIRST CANADIAN GOVERNMENT  TO FACE UP TO THE FACTS OF  OIL TANKER POLLUTION ��� ��� ���  Since World War II, technology existed to set  up a system that would greatly reduce the  chance of ship collision and keep track of all  vessels off the B.C. Coast, thus reducing the  chances of a major oil spill, and increasing the  chances of locating and assisting men and  ships at sea who are in distress. It is the Clark  Administration that set in motion this  technology. And our Environment Minister  John Fraser says as long as I'm Minister, there  will be no oil port at Kitimat, a position shared  by Al Lazerte.  CONTINUE WITH THE GOVERNMENT THAT  ISN'T AFRAID TO FACE PROBLEMS.  AL LAZERTE g  P.C.  DONT BE MISLED  PETROCAN IS CONTROLLED BY  THE MULTI-NATIONALS,  NOT CANADIANS  Al Lazerte says the NDP-Liberal coalition  helped the multi-nationals keep control by  defeating the Government. Originally, says  Lazerte, the Government capitalized it with  $800 million of your tax dollars. Petrocan then  borrowed $114 billion to buy Pacific Petroleum,  getting the money from Banks and Foreign  companies who hold Petrocan Debentures as  collateral. To date, not even the Interest has  been paid.  The Progressive Conservative Petrocan Plan  is to allow the Government to control It with  one third of Ihe slock:���give Canadians, 18 and  over, 5 shares each and selling the rest in small  blocks to Canadians, with resale to foreigners  prohibited. The money raised would be used to  get Petrocan out of debt and out of foreign  control.  LET'S MAKE PETROCAN TRULY CANADIAN.  AL LAZERTE g  P.C.  IN THIS TIME OF INTERNATIONAL CRISIS  WE NEED A REAL DEFENCE POLICY  We are firmly committed to NATO (North  Atlantic Treaty Organization) but we are also  committed to properly equipping our Armed  Forces. Then, we will be able to handle both  national and local emergencies. As well, we  will continue to support the Reserve and Cadet  Corps.  BEING PREPARED IS NOT JUST A BOY  SCOUT MOTTO.  AL LAZERTE Q|  P.C.  AL LAZERTE  Progressive Conservative  Comox-Powell River  I don't believe Canadians can be sogreedy they  will beggar their children and place such a burden  on their grandchildren that our country will  completely collapse. That's the bleak prospect  offered by Canada's Minister of Industry and  Small Business, Ron Huntington. We are being  offered complete control by either big government of the socialist NDP-Liberal coalition, or big  business who are chuckling as they finance the  insane socialist spending spree, that is putting  more and more of our country under foreign  control. Either way we lose said the Minister  because they rule from the top down. You do as  you are told.  He eieclrlfled tiis audience as he unfolded the  manipulation of the votes of Canadians by  promises of "give them anything they want to  make them happy, but don't let them know what is  going on." That's why we see Trudeau, presented  in a shiny plastic package, his speeches prepared  with no leadership debate, and no newsman  allowed to talk with him. They're afraid you'll find  out. Democracy means rule by Law says  Huntington, law being a tool of Justice, fair play.  But the Trudeau administration had already  begun ruling by decree, regulation, without going  through the democratic process. That's why they  defeated the government and the budget. In the  budget, we put forward to them there was an 18  cent excise tax on gasoline; to be discussed and  ' debated in parliament. Trudeau, some time ago,  in his arrogance, did not consult the Canadian  people, but simply announced a 10 cent a gallon  increase. Another case of this rule by regulation,  was the bringing in of the metric system. Again  Trudeau sidestepped parliament, the voice of the  people. It was again another regulation that set up  a whole new, department and ordered three  Canadian cities, one of them Kamloops, at great  expense to retail sell using metric measure,  'kilograms instead of pounds, etc. There was no  option, they had to do it or, said Huntington, they  were going to close them down, put a padlock on  the front door. Not only that he said, but as of  January 1,1980, Trudeau was going to force this  travesty on 21 other urban centers across  Canada. We were able to stop them this time.  These he said are only a few of the hundreds of  regulations that are being foisted on you, across  the country, at the local, privincial and federal  level, gradually eroding away the little freedom  you have left. Huntington concluded with,  "Whatever happened to the grand design of  Confederation, where our leaders were men of  integrity, and courage like John Crosbie, men of  such honesty z.% Joe Clark wf.o ;jn't afraid to  admit a mistake and correct it, men of vision like  Al Lazerte who are willing to set aside their  business and personal life, to step forward and be  counted. There are still some left, I hope you elect  them."  Canada's Auditor General Comments  Maxwell Henderson says, "I have never had any  political affiliations but I think the political  opportunism displayed by the Liberal and NDP  parties In the Houseof Commons three weeks ago  a disgraceful and irresponsible act. Minister of  Finance Crosbie may not have brought down a  budget to everybody's liking, but for all it's  imperfections���and there were many���it was at  least the first attempt toward dealing with the root  cause of our domestic inflation by containing  spending, raising taxes and reducing the fantastic  deficit created by that self-same Liberal  opposition in its government of the country  during the past 16 years."  Gorde Hunter ol The Dally Colonist of Victoria  says, "The Liberals and NDP cry out that his  budget was too toughl Does this mean that if  either of these opposition parties forms or  controls the next government it will replace the  budget with one so soft that we simply go back to  having more of the same financial irresponsibility  we have suffered over the past 16 years? To me,  this is the real issue when we vote on February  18."  The Vancouver Sun's Editor says, "It is always  possible that the Canadian voters want a  government which does not have a policy on  anything, a prime minister who does not say  anything. But that would be extremely dangerous.  And, of course, it wouldn't really be that way. You  can be sure that, policy or none, once Mr. Trudeau  was re-elected he would start laying down the law.  He would have to. But it would be his law. not the  people's.  "What Mr. Trudeau has said to the voters has  not always been politically honest. Twice within  the last week he has misrepresented the  Conservative position on energy issues. He  sought to gain advantage from Prime Minister Joe  Clark's failure to eliminate the risk of oil tanker  traffic on the West Coast although the fault rests  as much, If not more, with himself."  Canada's only national newspaper, the Globe  and Mall says, "John Crosbie, Canada's Minister  of Finance is The Globe and Mail's man of the  year. He emerged during 1979 as Canada's  champion of economic realism and responsibility  in government. He preached restraint, hard work  and self-denial lo a people inclined lo forget that  sooner or later the bill for credit card living must  be paid.  "Mr. Crosbie gained the respect and confidence of the business and financial community  and of individuals who believe that the country's  massive and increasing economic problems need  to be confronted squarely and decisively."  The Ottawa Journal says, "The government  was defeated last night because it introduced a  responsible budget which the times demanded.  "The government was defeated because it had  the courage to abandon some of its own election  promises when the fact of power confronted it  with the hard realities of the state of our national  accounts.  "The government was defeated by a rag-tag  coalition of opportunists who put the narrowly  perceived good of their own political fortunes  ahead of any sense of responsibility towards the  country.  "Finance Minister John Crosbie had the  integrity and the fortitude to choose the hard  options; to do what the former Liberal government knew should be done but refused to do  because it might cost some votes.  "The Liberals and their NDP friends have  insulted the intelligence of the Canadian people."  SAVE OUR WEST COAST FISHERIES  For the first time in 20 years, a realistic,  approach is being taken of this valuable  resource by consulting with people directly  involved. This way a proper management  outlook is being created. Our Fishing  Resource has been under tremendous  pressure the past five years and sound  decisions must be made quickly before stocks  are irreparably damaged.  Our Fisheries Minister, John Mcgrath (he  pronounces it Magraw) is so concerned, he is  making personal visits here to talk to  Commercial and Sports Fishermen to get their  views. The first of these at Campbell River,  February 7.  ELECT A GOVERNMENT THAT LISTENS TO  THE PEOPLE.  AL LAZERTE |g   P.C.  LOCAL PROBLEMS WILL RECEIVE  MORE ATTENTION BY A  GOVERNMENT SIDE MP  There are many problems of grave concern  that an opposition MP cannot deal with  successfully. Al Lazerte says that he will  answer every letter, reporting back on every  problem he investigates and perhaps be better  able to do something about it as a member of  the Government.  LET'S HAVE A MEMBER ON THE GOVERNMENT SIDE.  AL LAZERTE   8 P.C.  WE MUST PROTECT  OUR HEALTH, WELFARE AND RETIREMENT  PROGRAMS  Al Lazerte says he will support the  Government for the re-Introduction of the  Budget that was designed to save this country  from financial ruin; to protect the working  man's future by ensuring there will be money  for welfare for the needy, adequate health care  for all, unemployment insuranceand adequate  Canada Pension Plan and Old Age Pension.  Statistics Canada says if your dollar was  worth 100 cents in 1971, it was worth 50 cents  in 1979. Meanwhile the NDP and Liberals vie  with each other to see who can give away the  ., roost.goodies. If elected, their dollars would  erode from 50 cents to 25 cents. We are going  one better. Our Budgets will eventually maK'ea  " dollar worth a dollar.  NOW ��� THERE'S A REAL ELECTION GOODIE.  AL LAZERTE jg   P.C.  CANADIANS FIRST - ENERGY POLICY  Our Federal Energy Policy is to cut out  dependency on foreign oil imports by 1990. To  do that, we need money to build pipelines,  discover more oil and get our so-called  Canadian Oil Companies out of foreign  control. That's one of the reasons why the  Budget was asking for an 18 cent surtax on  gasoline���to fund a National Energy Bank and  reduce the federal defioit.  ELECT A "CANADA FIRST" GOVERNMENT  AL LAZERTE EJ| P.C.  CARE MUST BE TAKEN BY  ANY NEW MINING VENTURES  Al Lazerte says we need more study before  any large scale coal mining is allowed in the  Campbell River watershed to ensure Fisheries  are not affected. Al says, If this coal is allowed  to be mined under proper environmental  supervision, then it must be transported over a  better route than now planned, and shipped  from another facility than that in the Campbell  River estuary.  ELECT   A   GOVERNMENT  THAT   CARES  ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT.  AL LAZERTE Qg P.C.  LAW, ORDER AND JUSTICE  Criminals do not want justice, they want  license to prey on others. Punishment, to be a  deterrent, must fit the crime.  Capital punishment must be restored.  Laws against Prostitution, Perversion and  Pornographic Exploitation must be strengthened. The unborn child must have legal  protection.  Therapeutic Abortion was not meant as a  method of birth cpntrol.  CIVILIZATION IS NOT POSSIBLE WITHOUT  A STRONG MORAL BASE.  AL LAZERTE 8| P.C.  AL LAZERTE   IS  This Ad paid for by the Progressive  Conservative Party ��� Comox-Powell River. Wildlife  corner  by Ian Corrance  Eating Crow  j And that is what I have been  doing all week.  It started off with my safari  to photograph an elusive piebald crow that had been  spotted in the Hopkins area.  After getting a good supply  of day-old buns at Ken's Lucky  Dollar, I set off to Central  Avenue with my portable hide  (a 1961 Austin). After setting  myself up in a strategic position, I spread half my bait in a  likely looking spot. It worked  perfectly, the birds started  flocking around���I even got a  quick glance at the black and  white crow for a second but it  was off with a piece of bun  before I could focus on it. I was  pretty confident that it would  be back for more, but my  hopes were dampened a bit  when a pickup came along and  parked on top of my bread.  Never daunted, with my true  pioneer spirit I moved a few  yards along and baited my trap  again with the rest ofthe bread.  I kept out of sight behind the  car door until I heard some  action, then peered over for a  look. Three dogs were happily  munching up the last of my  bait. At least I know that the  crow is there, so I'll try again.  My next project for the week  was to attend the Gibsons  Wildlife meeting. They were  having a guest speaker from the  Outward Bound course and 1  thought it might be of interest.  Before I could go there I had to  cover the Sechelt Council  Sechelt Council meeting. It was  over pretty quickly, so I headed  straight for the Wildlife Club  after it, and arrived just in time  to see the cars pulling out ofthe  parking lot.  The final straw was on  Thursday evening. I like to go  to the Marsh Society's meetings  on the first Thursday of each  month. I looked at my handy  dandy executive planner (it  makes me feel important) and  saw that I had two additional  jobs for that evening, so  anything I write about any of  the meetings will be second  hand. I'm not getting out of bed  this week until I read my  astrological projection from  Ellingham.  Marsh Society  From my second hand infor  mation gathering of last Thursday's meeting, I can tell you  that about 30 people showed up  to watch a couple of films on  the rocks, flowers and birds of  the southwestern U.S.A. deserts. Dr. Ken Hall was the guest  speaker.  During the question period  after the films, he found that  many of the members showed  an interest in the role of  marshland in the balance of  nature. This apparently is his  speciality and he is quite willing  to come up at a later date and  set aside the evinging for that  subject.  At the pound  There's a bumper crop of  dogs at the pound this week:  two puppies, female, lab cross;  one puppy, male, lab cross; one  seven month old, male, sheepdog cross; one mature, male  dachschund cross; one mature,  female, spaniel cross; one male,  golden lab (young and well-  trained), one male pup, sam-  oyed cross; one Siberian husky  cross, also male. It sure sounds  like there are a lot of cross dogs  in the area.  If any of these dogs sound  like they are yours, or there is  one you would like to own, give  Marty Meldrum a call at the  Gibsons Village office, 886-  2274.  Odds 'n Ends  I notice that the bald eagle is  getting some press coverage  lately. Apparently there are  more of them in B.C. than there  are in the whole of the U.S.A.  What this has done is create a  black  market and birds are  fetching up to $1,000. The Fish  and Wildlife Branch are going  to crack down on this, thankfully. Otherwise, sightings like  the one last week at Mission  Point of 14 of these magnificent birds will be a thing ofthe  past.  John Hind-Smith saw a  snowy owl at Soames Point last  week. It was an immature one!  and still had some brown on it,  so keep your eyes open and you  may see it. It was a daytime  sighting.  I've had two calls about a  semi-albino starling amongst  the flock that hangs around the  Henry Road area. Unlike  crows, the bird is accepted by  the rest of the flock and appears  to be quite normal except for its  colour.  Listening to the news on  Saturday night I heard birder  David Sterling of Victoria  featured as possibly the greatest birder of the year. He had a  count of 319 species.  That's a pretty high count,  but a few days ago I was talking  with a friend over a beer and he  mentioned a man in the States  that had aimed for a North  American total of 700 last year.  According to the story, he  made it to 698.1 haven't been  able to get any verification on  this. Has anyone else heard  about it, or had I just had one  beer too many?  That's all for now. I hope to  have a picture of the pie-bald  crow in time for my next  column. If you want to contact  me, call me at 886-7817/886-  2622 or 886-9151, ta.  A class of their own  by John Hind-Smith  A week or two ago I mentioned the fact that springtales  or Collembola had made their  appearance in the garden over  the Christmas/New Year holiday and wondered aloud if  "anyone out there" could  enlighten me further about  these little guys. The following  is 'first hand' proof that these  ramblings are read sometimes  by the silent multitude out  there. In this particular case  there may be some family  collusion involved as this  information was offered by my  sister in England. Speaking for  myself I find it quite fascinating and will present it just as  it was given to me.  Collembola (Springtalls)  Are very small insects that  exist in enormous numbers on  or below the soil and among  herbiage. Their English name  derives from the peculiar  jumping organ, a fork shaped  appendage attached to the hind  end ofthe abdomen and folded  forward. It is held in place by a  catch, and the insect jumps by  applying tension to the fork  and then suddenly releasing the  catch. A springtail jumps  rather like a mousetrap that is  set and then dropped upside  down. The apparatus is lacking  in springtails that live permanently under the soil. They  have another peculiar organ  used in climbing and the name  'collembola' means 'glue peg'.  The abdomen of all other  insects have eleven segments;  Coast News, February 12,1980 17.  that of the collembola only six. piece of evidence of their  separateness: by a happy piece  of preservation, wonderful!)  perfect fossils have been found  in Scotland in a flint like roclc  which is of Devonian Age in the  geological record. These ini  elude primitive land plants and  also quite recognisable spring  tails, not very different from  those of today.  The fact is that collembola have  been classified with insects  because they are six legged land  anthropods. They are not on  the 'family tree' of the true  insects of anywhere near it, and  in a strictly natural classification they would be placed in  a class of their own.

Sechelt Council  ���f  by Beverly Seton  Cam had always hoped to  catch a baby raccoon on Keats  Island and tame it.  One summer day wc heard  ferocious barking up in the  woods, not far from our  cottage. It sounded like two  very large dogs with deep  voices.  "Who's dogs can those be? '  said Mum. "Must be visitors I  don't know their voices!" So wc  all tramped up the hill to sec  what all the commotion was  about, except Peggy who was  six and had gone alone through  the woods over to sec Corky at  his farm a mile away.  Soon wc arrived at the scene  of action, two huge cougar  hounds were barking, baying  and jumping around the foot of  a very tall bushy fir tree.  "I wonder where they came  from?" said Dad.  "1 wonder what's up the  tree?" said Cam, "I bet it's a  coon, maybe I can get it and if  it's a young one I'll keep it." So  up he went, up��� up��� up��� he  climbed but then he ran out of  branches and had to stop. The  dogs still bayed and barked.  Cam peered upwards but the  tree was so dense he could sec  nothing. Finally he came down  and wc all went home. But the  dogs still barked and made a  fearful fuss so we went back up.  Wc were tired of listening to  them, so took them some dog  biscuits and dragged them  unwillingly down to our house.  No sooner did wc arrive there  than two strange men came  through _ our gate. They were  dressed as hunters and carried  large guns.  "Oh no!" said one when he  saw the dogs, "you didn't drag  them off, they had that cougar  treed for sure. We've been after  it all day."  "Couldn't it have been a  coon?" we asked meekly.  "Certainly not, " said th  other man, "theseare first class,  trained cougar dogs and would  never bother with a coon, but  the cat will begone now. What  a crazy trick pulling them off."  At this moment Dad came  charging out of the house with  his gun. "Where you going  fellow?" said the man.  "I'm going to meet my little  girl. She's coming through  those woods alone and may  meet that cougar! Bcbs run in  and phone Corky, tell him to  keep her there if she hasn't left  yet and Ken you better come  with me."  Poor Cam. no raccoon but  almost a cougar!  Continued from Page One.  secretary Rita Sober, was also  about landscaping. She asked  when Council would be moving  to a new public works building,  in order that they could begin.  One member of Council  stated that he did not like the  tone of the letter. He was  backed up by Alderman Koli-  bas who knew of no time limit  on the removal of the Works  building.  Alderman Macdonald asked  that the letter be tabled until  the February 22nd meeting,  and that he would like a  member of the Arts Council  present. He also asked that the  Clerk have available a map of  the lot showing what is covered  in the lease, and that he have a  detailed account of the Arts  Council's grants to date. He felt  tha he would like to know the  amount as it was beginning to  worry him.  The Heritage Conservation  Branch forwarded to Council a  brochure outlining means of  applying for heritage grants.  Acting Mayor Hall informed  Council that the Chamber of  Commerce had appointed a  committee to look into this,  and he suggested that Alderman Stelck meet with the  Chamber so that they could  work together. At the present  time they are looking at  preserving Rockwood Lodge  for something alongthe lines of  a museum.  Quasar  Voting arrangement  for blind voters  A template that fits over the  ballot permits the casting of  secret ballots by blind Canadians who are eligible to vote in  the 32nd federal general election. The template permits the  blind voter, or one with very  poor eyesight, to mark a ballot  without assistance.  The system was introduced  in a federal general election for  the first time in May 1979, and  resulted from discussions held  two years ago between officials  of the Canadian National  Institute for the Blind and the  Chief Electoral Officer, Jean-,  Marc Hamel.  It is estimated there are over  30.000 blind persons in Canada  who are eligible voters.  Blind and other physically  incapacitated persons may still  receive assistance in voting if  they wish���either from a friend  or from the Deputy Returning  Officer. The template system  provides an option and makes  possible a secret ballot.     ,  When a blind voter wishes to  exercise the option, the Deputy  Returning Officer places the  ballot under the template. The  circles opposite the names of  candidates on the ballot are  aligned with cut-out circles on  Jhe template. The voter, if  necessary, may obtain the  names on the ballot from the  Deputy Returning Officer.  Your One-Stop Booking Centre at No Extra Cost to You.

Not only is it time-consuming,  but it also takes knowledge that few laymen have, and the do-it-yourself pitfalls are  plentiful.  For some people who feel they only have to put up a "For Sale by Owner" sign and  sit back and wait for prospects, or buy an ad in a newspaper and wiat for the telephone  to ring, here are a few cautionary words. Both of those methods may bring people to  your home, but it can lead to many unescorted strangers tramping through your  home at all times of the day or night with no qualification if they are potential  purchasers. The people who are attracted by your ad or sign could be just curious;  they could also be potential thieves, taking this opportunity to "case" the premises  and appraise the value of your possessions. They could also be very knowledgeable  potential buyers who have looked over the market carefully and through their  comparisons know immediately if the price you have set is too high to be realistic.. .or,  in some cases, so low as to be a fantastic bargain!  Many "For Sale by Owner" vendors have set the price of their home on emotional  rather than on (actual grounds. They calculate from years of residence, happy  memories and other prejudices, and are influenced by what they have heard real  estate values are, and what neighbours have said they received for their homes. Not  very scientific, not very realistic, not at all attuned to the marketplace as it is today.  Even after having set a price, and perhaps coming to some agreement with a  possible purchaser...is the "For Sale by Owner" vendor able to get the best terms for  selling? How much money should be asked as a downpayment? If a small existing  mortgage remains, is he prepared to .finance partof the purchase? Can he help a  prospect find mortgage money, and how is he going to ascertain if the prospect is  financially responsible?  An owner should ask himself if his property is really ready for sale. Is it spruced up  and attractive for prospective buyers, or have so many improvements been made to  suit the owner, that the money spent on them will never be recovered in the vendor's  particular neighbourhood? If a prospective vendor comes along, will an owner be able  to negotiate such things as price, terms, possession, and the countless legal  procedures that attend the details of a real estate transaction?  Those people considering selling their homes by themselves should remember that  often buyers will automaticlly decide to save what they consider are commission  funds, and reduce their offering prices accordingly.  Many stresses and strains and lengthy selling periods are reduced by using a  licensed real estate agent who is a skilled professional in the marketplace and has all  the current facts to help a vendor get a satisfactory price for a home.
