Array Victoria, ��������-��� '  i  COAST^NEWS  50 cents per copy on newsstands  February 8,1993 Volume 47 Issue 6  District forester  pushing for final  LRUP report  by Jane Seyd  Some people say il's not  likely to happen, but dislricl forest manager Greg Hemphill is  urging members of the Tetrahedron Local Resource Use Plan  group (I.RUP) to come up wiih  a final report soon.  Speaking lo the LRUP committee Wednesday,       Hemphill said if a  final recommendation comes in lhe  next six months, it  can be included in  the provincial government's Protected  Areas Strategy deliberations.  Under the strate- ~~������"  gy, lhe Tetrahedron Plateau will  be among areas considered for  wilderness preservation by the  government Ihis fall.  Within lhe area including lhe  Sunshine Coast, there is currently aboul IU.6 per cent of land  designated as wilderness area,  said Hemphill. The government  would like to increase lhat to 18  per .cent, which would mean an  additional 15,000 hectares to be  set aside.  Hemphill added, however,  thai a recommendation from Ihe  Tetrahedron group will be competing wilh proposals from  many other ureas, including the  Lower Mainland. Proposals  which are easiest to implement  and have agreement from all  parlies will likely be "the ones  thai gel designated (as protected  areas) first 1 expect," he said.  "They would like lo sec a  complete report sometime in  early fall ... We want a report  that's fairly clear and concise,  saying whal should happen in  that area."  Not everyone thought lhal  was likely. "I don't think we're  real close lo gelling a final  report in," said Murray Cantelon of Ihe local IWA. "If        we're   trying   to  reach one option I  think we're wasting  our time because  we're pretty polarized now."  If a final report  presents Ihe government wilh several  -Oiilt Htfttlpblll choices rather than a  ������"*"~""*""~"    unanimous recom-  'We want a  report ...  saying what  should happen  in that area'  tnendation, it may decide to  choose one, to make a decision  on its own or to recommend further study of the issue, said  Hemphill.  On Wednesday, Iwo subcommittee reports were presented lo  Ihe LRUP. Both the recreation  and wilderness groups recommended either complete or partial preservation of the sludy  area. Further reports on jobs and  the watershed reserve are  expected soon.  Meanwhile, members disagreed on how the past two  years' work of the committee  should eventually be presented  to the public. "If we're going to  lake Ihe public process seriously, we have to have something  the public can relate to," said  Cantelon, who favoured a format which is concise and easily  understandable.  turn to page 3  Reflecting on a night and day well spent, Chatelech DaVinci program students pack up the bus at Camp Byng and head home  Tuesday. Joel Johnstone pholo  Education hikes expected across board  by Darah Hansen  Increase is Ihe word to use when describing what should be expected in the coming  school year: increase in students, increase in  teachers, increase in salaries, increase in  teaching space, increase in busing.  Unfortunately the smallest increase to be  expected will be the amount of funding  coining from the provincial Miii!��iy oc !'*U-  ' cation - and lhat means a decrease1 in educational services.  School district 46 secretary-treasurer Tim  Anderson said the details of the 1993/94  education budget were worse than he had  anticipated.  Although the figures released by the Har  court governmenl Jan. 24 show a $100 million, or three per cent, rise compared to last  year's education budget, Anderson said Ihe  real increase when enrolment is taken into  account will be nominal.  'And wage increases  are expected'  In fact, with a 2.5 per cent jump in the  number of students expected for the  province next year, the monetary increase  will equal less than one per cent, on a per-  pupil basis.  "And that's without factoring an increase  in the regular cost of living," Anderson said.  On the Sunshine Coast, 250 new students  are expected to swell the already crowded  classrooms and while extra money will be  provided by the ministry because of this,  Anderson said most of it will be absorbed  "right off the bat" by salaries for the new  starf that will be required - teachers, maintenance and custodial.  Add to that the $50,000 needed to provide for extra buses. "If we then have a  wage increase on top of that then we're in a  deficit," said Anderson.  And wage increases are expected.  turn to page 2  Gibsons' community acquires 10  acres of farm land on Shaw Road  by Charles Hart  A municipal land deal that  has been in lhe works for more  than four years has finally been  completed.  Gibsons annnounced Tuesday that il has bought the former  Christenson farm, Tuckwaway,  on Shaw Road - a 10-acre parcel  that comes with strings attached.  The purchase price of $195,000  is estimated to be less than half  the market value of the land,  which Mildred and Thor Christenson purchased in 1947 and  operated as a farm unlil recently.  "This is a very, very magnanimous thing for the Christensons  lo do," said Mayor Eric Small.  Christenson made the sale on  condition that the land be used  only for community benefit and  he attached restrictions to the  agreement.  The specified uses include  public park, public playground,  community centre, public  school, police station, library,  community heallh facilities or  non-profit housing for seniors,  and will be registered against the  land title in a restrictive  covenant.  Small said he made a verbal  agreement with Thor Christenson to set aside a minimumiO  per cent of the property as a  park, land council agreed Tuesday to name formally as Christenson park in recognition of the  family's generosity.  Bill Merilees, a Christenson  family relative, said Thor's concern was to ensure that the property would not be flipped or  developed for profit. "It has all  worked out well and the family  is quite happy," Merilees said  from his Nanaimo home. He  noted the proceeds of the sale are  more than Thor Christenson,  now elderly and in a nursing  home, will need to care for himself during his lifetime. Mildred  Christenson died in December.  Council gave first reading to a  bylaw which authorizes the town  to execute the purchase and debt  financing for a term not exceeding five years. Repayment of the  Gibsons' new property on Shaw Road.  Joel Johnstone photo  loan will be an addition to this  year's municipal budget, which  must be finalized by the end of  May  Small said the town has no  specific plans for the property at  this time, "but will consider  everything within Ihe permitted  uses." Acknowledging thai the  whole property could be dedicated for a park the mayor commented: "That's not very likely."  Texada: a study in contrasts across Malaspina Strait  by Jane Seyd  Silting off Ihe mainland  across Malaspina Strait, the low  blue slab of Texada Island rises  from the gulf like an object seen  in peripheral vision; an  afterthought.  The largest of the Gulf  Islands, Texada is geographically close, but it's not a place  many people visit. "It's not an  easily hospitable place," says  Jim Dougan, who grew up on  Ihe island and has lived on the  south end for the last 17 years.  "It's not easy to get to and  there's not many places for  moorage. The wind is never still  where I live.  "There's a nice big island,  bul only the north end has any  population ... You step on certain places and you gel certain  feelings."  Despite a ferry lhat leaves  Powell River for Ihe north end  of the island regularly, there's  still a quality of Texada that's  unapproachable, which folds  over its history and remains  silent.  A northern view of Texada Island.  "I loved the place. Other peo-      manent settlement on the island.  pie hated it because it was iso  lated," says Dougan.

"It gives you a different per-  Jane Seyd photo  spective from any of the other  Gulf Islands," says Phil Makow,  who spent four years on Ihe  island building a hobby farm.  "You couldn't just get by."  The east side of Texada,  mostly uninhabited, presents a  blank face to the mainland, rising steeply from the deadheads  floating in Ihe water to a mix of  occasional logging scars and  layered fringes of trees. Underneath Ihe ground, the lines of  the island's past run through old  veins of copper, gold, iron and  marble.  At Blubber Bay on the north  end, a quarry sits next to the  ferry dock wilh conveyers,  Euclid trucks and hills of limestone.  At an old loading site, down  a dirt road strewn with chunks  of rock, the remains of an old  crusher sit inside now-crumbling foundations. The base is  still held up by pieces of timber  and there are bits of rock rusted  into the huge gears. Blackberry  bushes grow over bent strips of  metal nearby.

Sunshine Coast Teacher's  Association (SCTA) president  Sharon Wood confirmed Friday that the contract bargaining  leam has reached a tentative  agreement with the school district, ending months of ongoing negotiation.  Wood said the terms of the  two-year agreement have yet to  be ratified by members of the  union. That's expected to occur  at a meeting sometime next  week. The school board will  also be presented with the  agreement at its regular meeting Tuesday.  Until the deal is ratified by  both parlies, no details of Ihe  agreement are being released to  the public.  Prior to reaching the Friday  agreement, Wood said the  teachers had given their union  the authority lo call a strike  vole should lhe package presented by the school board be  unacceptable.  turn to page 2  .AMMHI Coast News, February 8, 1993  8  8  6  I  O  R  O  O  R  O  N  PIZZA  OM-E-G-A  RESTAURANT  OMEGA'S  NEW  PIZZA  HOTLINE  886-4241  (FOR 2 FORI)  2 FOR 1  PIZZA  DINE IN  TAire-OUT  OR  DELIVERY  t*   TWO SMALL  PIZZAS  v plu-i tan  with chees? and  2 loppings  V.l.ll.atll,   Willi a- rati |t* HI   f   *    J-k.   ��� nil  nrdiitrin P.<i��KippingaviifiNr  tl adilliiinil(a>*at  Nrn nNdhr dttm) 'WUVn.

Farla *",'*���.  by Stuart Burnside  After a year of discussion, deliberation and debate, an  ad-hoc committee of Coasl residents is poised for tlte creation of a formal, govemmenl-sanctioned council to deal  wilh any controversies surrounding Ihe use of Crown  land within the Sunshine Coast Regional District.  The proposed "resources council" will comprise representatives of all Coasl communities, according to ad-  hoc committee chairman Harry Almond. Initially, il will  advise the various government bodies on what Coast residents feel is Ihe besl use for Crown land.  'It will be independent... It's to be  made up of interested and  knowledgeable people from  all over the Coast'  ���Horry Almond  "It will be independent," Almond said of the council,  "It's to be made up of interested and knowledgeable people ftom all over the Coasl. The council can act lo serve  the besl interests of the communily, but draw on Ihe  (financial and technical) resources of Ihe governmenl."  While the council will start out as an advisory panel,  Almond and committee spokesman Barry Janyk, both  feel that the resources council will move beyond lhal role  once il has established credibility. Janyk noled a synopsis  of the ad-hoc committee's expectations for the council  reads: "The proposed Resources Council would seek to  fill a perceived gap in local government jurisdiction and  pul Ihe provincial governmenl on notice that il would  speak lor the Sunshine Coasl communities on issues pertaining to the current and future use of Crown land  resources."  He also noted that Ihe plan for the council was in  keeping with a desire on lhe part of Ihe province lo make  Communities more responsible for their own land-use  decisions.  "ll was intended lhal the creation of the resources  council would try to lie in wilh Ihe mandate of the  (provincial) Commission on Resource and Ihe Environment (CURIO lo deal wilh land usage," Janyk said.  "... Part of CORE'S mandate is lo have land-use decisions filter down lo Ihe community level."  He said lhat a number of the ad-hoc committee members had visited Victoria seeking the approval of CORF.  Commissioner Stephen Owen, who supported the  resource council concept, bul only on Ihe condition that  the establishment of the council was done entirely  through community effort without supervision or funding  from the provincial government.  "Once we get it up and running and establish credibility, (Owen) will hack us all (he way," Janyk said.  Almond said the ad-hoc committee hoped to have  council representatives selected by the end of March,  drawing upon communily ratepayer groups and associations to provide roughly two members each. "Those, plus  sis or eight members at large, should cover most of Ihe  Coasl and give us a 24-member council," Almond said.  "Which is a pretty good number."  "The whole purpose of this  (council) is to rise above personal  interest and try to do what is best  for the community'  -Harry Janyk  The ad-hoc committee, which will be disbanded once  the council is in place, has spent the last year, among  other things, hammering oul terms of reference for the  council, with an emphasis on objectivity.  "lhe whole purpose of this (council) is to rise above  personal inlerest and try to do whal is best for the communily," Janyk said. "The council will have lo work  together objectively with the community interest in mind  in order lo establish any kind of credibility."  According to Almond, Ihe idea for Ihe resources council was adapted from a proposal of former district forest  manager Barry Mountain, who wanted to set up a council  to deal primarily with forest use decisions on the Sunshine Coast.  Focus on LRUP plan rather than procedure: Hemphill  from page I  "We've had two years to study Ihis technical crap ... It still all looks like colours (on  a map) to me."  But Dan Bowman of the Tetrahedron Alliance disagreed: "I believe the public has the  right to see the hard information thai has been gathered."  Hemphill urged the group to focus on completing a report and to not get bogged  down in peripheral debates. "Don'l get hung up on Ihis procedural stuff. We're trying to  compiele a plan here."  Hemphill said he has also met recently with Ihe Friends of Caren, who presented their  park proposal to him.  Unlike the Tetrahedron, the Caren Range is not included in the Protected Areas Strat  egy. "That puts ihem at a real disadvantage," he said.  A Forest Service plan for a modified ecological reserve in the Caren is expected by  the end of February, said Hemphill. It will likely include sel asides for some areas of old  growth, but will allow logging in others.  Hemphill said outside ihe reserve area, the Forest Service will also Iry to identify  "significant features," such as very old Irees and wildlife habitat areas which need pro-  lection.  Earlier Ihis year, a significant marbled murrelet population was found by scientists in  Ihe Caren.  Hemphill said Ihe ministry is currently seeking advice on that issue from its forest  sciences division.  ift    SepTtaSystem     j School wage criticisms rejected  ��� f \_w HSZSrQS 1      front page I of cancelled education programs      gauged with the hours worke  ��� Don't allow any vehicles to drive or park  over any part of the septic system.  ��� Donl pour paints, solvents or toxic  chemicals into drains or toilets.

Presently, teachers  who have graduated wilh a four-  year university degree and have  sjpentone year in an apprenticeship will be hired ,at $34,916.'  Over a 10-year period lhal figure will rise to $54,846', wage  increases negotiated over subsequent contracts notwithstanding.  "So what happens?" said  Anderson.  Traditionally, he said, Ihe  heaviest cuts have hit the mainlenance and custodial services  first, bul in lighl of Ihe continuous student population boom the  staff is already stretched thin.  So it might come in the form  of cancelled education programs  or classroom sizes getting a little bigger, he said.  Anderson dismissed recent  criticisms coming from school  districts in the Lower Mainland  alleging that top-hea 'V administration wages are > 'ighing  down the system.  Already one administration  job has been cut, he said, adding  "it would not be logical lo look  al removing further people from  the board office."  He listed the administration  salaries, which include the  school principals, secretary-treasurer, assistant superintendent  and superintendent, as ranging  from $67,000 lo more than  $90,000.  And though the figures may  sound like a lot of money, when  gauged with the hours worked,  it doesn't equate to much,  Anderson said.  The president of the BC  Teachers' Federation, Ray Wor-  ley, has renounced the new education budgei, calling it "insufficient to meet the changing needs  of students" and "potentially  disastrous" to education.  He said classroom services  Will only be exacerbated by the  lack of funding, leaving teachers  unable to work effectively with  increases in enrolment, in special needs students and in public  expectations for schools to solve  social problems.  "If we want to see the returns  from a first-rate public education system," Worley said, "we  will have to make the investment."  Book Space Now For  Sunnycrest Mall's  Hurry!

School district secretary-treasurer Tim Anderson said Friday that  both the board and the SCTA had been flexible in their positions at  the negotiation table, adding he didn't think either side got exactly  what they were asking for.

Thai's when they're being  nice.  In the pasl mouth il's often  been much worse for Ml.A and  Opposition U-ader Gordon Wilson. Hut il politics is becoming  a strain, Wilson isn't saying  much about il.  Liberal caucus infighting?  One or Iwti dissidents blowing  ,ul'f steam, he says. Relationship  .with Hie media? Basically  unchanged from before the last  election.  As for his own leadership of  the BC Liberal parly, Wilson  iiComiltcnlSi "I feel as secure now  as I did in l')X7 ... The question  .of the leadership blooms like  ���tulips in the spring. The principal difference is as a Leader of  .the Opposition il's a much more  attractive position to go alter."  He discounts rumours of a  split within the Liberal ranks  Juvcr that: "One has to consider  the source," he says. "I really  don'l lltittk It's a huge issue."  Or alternatively: "I guess we'll  ,)tave to isolate which attacks  we're talking aboul."  Ml.A (itirdon Wilson  lie prefers not lo mention  former Liberal and party defector David Mitchell hy name,  referring tn him as "a Wesl Vancouver-!, iarihaldi MLA."  Problem? Whal problem?  "Il's a problem lo the extent  lhal il detracts from our ability  lo do a job," says Wilson.  "...There's no question there are  people who are uncomfortable  wilh the philosophical direction  I'm taking the party.  "When you're involved in  politics you have lo make decisions ... I do listen and I do take  advice, hill in Ihe final analysis  I'll do whal I think is right.  "If that's arrogant, I guess it  is ... When I lake advice, you  don't hear ahout It."  Among a list of early political mistakes made, Wilson says  "I gave a lot of latitude lo people who did mc a lot of damage."  While everything's slill open  for discussion, Wilson seems  quick these days to build a wall  of words around himself, piling  up the successful example of his  sland on the October constitutional accord in front of his  more recent difficulties.  One thing he's learned aboul  public life is, "It is extremely  difficult to remain open and  honest," he says. "... The price of  being open and direct is a good  trashing in the media on occasion and a lot of people aren't  going In want lo put up with  lhal."  Mosi recently, the questions  put In him about his privale life  were simply uncalled for and  unfair, he comments,  "h wasn't affecting my job...  Neither did they have any evidence fu support (he allegation,"  he says.  "Wli.it an individual docs in  their private time is none of the  business of Ihe public.  "You can't defend against  lhal kind ol stuff."  Meanwhile, Wilson says he  has nn intention of giving up the  BC Liberal leadership, or of  chancing his philosophical  approach to the parly: "You  have lo sland ou principle and  sometimes you have lo fall on  principle as well."

The tenders for work on the  projecl came in recently (two of  them) and the lowest bid.  5370,635 from Spani Developments, is some $60,000 over  projected cost.  In a split vote decided by  Mayor Nancy MacLarty, council agreed lo apply for a grant  from the Ministry of Municipal  'Affairs for half the cost of the  increase and pay Ihe rest  through a short-term loan.  In the event Ihe ministry  won't pay, Ihe districl of Sechell  would have to cover Ihe entire  cosl.  Councillor Peggy Wagner,  who noted that the revitalisation  initiative was a partnership  between Ihe municipality and  local businesses, asked if Ihe  businesses would be required lo  chip in.  "Not without going lo referendum again," she was told,  which could jeopardise the  whole initiative.  Wagner and councillors  Shanks and Kolibas voted  against the district paying more,  while MacLarty and councillors  Wilson, Whistler and Giles  voted in favour.  t'P(if  S*A*L*  1010  ,..,:,'-  Draw Your Own Discount     s_^~\  10-30% J^fcU^  3 Days Only  Thursday, Friday, & Saturday  Lots of New  Spring Arrivals  Mete's  RESTAURANT  "Specials of the Week"  i Feb. 8-13  BRATWURST  on a bun  with fries  $4.25  LIVER & ONIONS  with potato  & vegetable  *____*  Specials include  soup or salad & GST  EVERY MONDAY 15  SENIORS'DAY  AU MEALS 10% OFF  PLEASE NOTE: WE WILL BE OPEN SUNDAY, FEB.  21 AT II om FOR THE SKAT TURNIER ONLY  * vcWcVu��\���� .,,��V..Y I  ,,e   ���nV     *  <***?  ^>*��> vt.****  ���*����'*&  Had  i^SssSsr*  \'3v_Ti��__V��f>  mote  os  ��^��*��S+  taCSt  all  **'  ��� ��  1993 ESCORTS  STAWS*lHJ)5k  * $500 repurchase certificate Mailable for mime new car lord oumm  We Need To Clear Out These Vehicles!  1993 ESCORT LX  DOOR HATCHBACK  < I.t Crystal Blue Clearcoat ��� Blue Cloth/Vinyl  1 Manual Air Conditioning  Power Steering  1 Light Convenience Group  1 Light Group  1 Dual Electric Remote Mirrors  ��� Remote Fuel Filler Door Release  ��� Power Deckliil Release  ��� ESP 60/10,000 km Premium Car  ��� 1.9L Sell Engine  ��� 5-Speed Manual Transaxle  ��� PI7S/70R1.-.BSW Tires  ��� Tachometer Instrumentation  ��� AM/FM Stereo Cassette Radio  17 Models to Chooee From:  ���Doors, 4-Doors, 5-Doore & Station Wagonsl  More Inventory Coming -  We Need the Parking Spaceel  RESTAURANT  LICENSED PREMISES ���  886-3434  SUNNYCREST I  SOUIHCOASIFOUD  Wharf Rd., Sechelt MDL 5936 PH 885 3281 (PARTS DIRECT LINE) 885 721 1 VAN TOLL FREE 684-291 1  ____________________________  .tiftiftfiatatfMHMil Co<ist News, Febritairy 8,  1993  opinion  Billing the costs  of our ill health  It is good to see citizens' advocacy is still alive and  well on the Coast, even as our spiralling health care costs  threaten to make us a sicker nation.  As the myriad problems plaguing the BC health care  system were addressed by Health Minister Elizabeth Cull  at a press conference in Vancouver last week, at which  she unveiled the NDP's program of changes to considerable criticism from the opposition Liberals and health  cate professionals, the reverberations of new legislation  in Ottawa were growing across the country to Ihe recent  passage of Bill C-91.  There is little to cheer about in a law that increases  patent protection to drug companies from 10 years to 20  years on the understanding that the powerful pharmaceutical lobby will, in exchange, increase its inveslmenl in  research and development of new drugs.  The inevitable result of extending an even longer  monopoly to one company is obvious: higher prescription  and hospital charges for a whole range of new drug products. In addition, the legislation allows companies, by a  sleight of hand, to extend Iheir patents by modifying  their products and remarketing Ihem under new names.  Such legislation is tantamount to a new heallh care lax,  one which will be felt most by seniors and the infirm,  those who have a greater reliance on prescriptive  medicines.  Even some of the country's traditional conservative  commentators, such as Dalton Camp, have found little  positive to say about the bill and there are significant  enclaves of protest brewing from coast to coast.  A group of Sunshine Coast seniors have mounted a  petition campaign against the bill and were out and about  collecting signatures last week. People of all ages took  time out to stop and sign.  Spiralling drug and prescription charges are not the  only fallout to be expected. Hidden costs to the taxpayer  will accrue from increased government subsidies, direct  and indirect, associated with the overall growth in  research and development.  There is a clear need to be pressing forward with costly  research into cures for the killer diseases that beset us,  such as cancer and AIDS, but there are other ways of  finding new financing for such scientific exploration  rather than profiting from those already suffering from  sickness.  The pharmaceutical giants represent some of Ihe larger  and mote profitable corporations in Nprth America; their  continued financial well being should hinge more directly  upon their reinvestment in the heallh of the nation.  Future prospects  A bouquet to the Christenson family for community  largesse in selling its Shaw Road 10-aere farm to the  Town of Gibsons for well below the market value of the  land. The restrictions that apply to the property allow for  flexibility, while ensuring the land will ultimately be used  to benefit town residents in years to come.  There are various public institutional uses which  owner Thor Christenson specified in the sale, but the  property is located away from the town core and would  have to tie in better with future services for appropriate  development to take place.  Some careful planning is needed to demonstrate the  community stewardship incumbent on local government  when it invests taxpayers' money in public land.  Mitts  No good whining  about development  Re: Beverley Shipley's  Roberts Creek article in the January 25th Coast News.  I was under the impression  that the community news articles were to inform people what  was happening in different communities, not a forum for Ms.  Shipley lo criticize the size of  her neighbour's new house and  whine about the fact that  Roberts Creek is changing.  Give your head a shake Beverley, the whole Coast is changing. What might be garish to  you niighl be beautiful lo someone else.  Having lived on the Coast all  my life, I've seen it grow  tremendously, and while I don't  like il as much as I did 20 years  ago, compared to other places I  could choose to live, I still think  the Coast is a wonderful place,  even if it is growing! I also  believe whining about it won't  change a thing.  G. WHITING  Gibsons  aLabour code  returns fairness  Re Bill 84 ��� Proposed  l-abour Code Changes  I am writing Ihis as the president of a local union, which has  an average membership of over  4,000 members. Some issues  need lo he addressed, such as  lhe slanted misinformation on  Bill 84.  Hopefully, many of your  readers will remember how, in  1987, then premier Bill Vander  Zalm went behind the backs of  his own Minister of Labour,  many in Ihe business community and Ihe entire labour movement by unilaterally drafting  and implementing Bill 19. Mr.  Vander Zalm's arrogance and  high-handed tactics were so  objectionable thai Ihe then  deputy minister of labour, Graham Leslie, resigned, referring  to Bill 19 as the product of "two  few and loo narrow minds."  The proposed legislation, Bill  84, has followed a much more  open, balanced and objective  route to revising the province's  labour laws. A three-person  panel of labour law experts  spent eight months on public-  hearings to develop a report on  which there w,is overwhelming  consensus.  I would like to specifically  deal wilh Section 2$ ��� Certifi  cation. If 55 per cenl of the  employees in a proposed bargaining unit sign an application  for membership in a union,  automatic certification is grant  ed. BC had this provision for 40  years prior to Ihe Socred government changing it in 1984. It  should be noted lhat Canada's  Labour Code has this provision,  as do all the other provinces of  Canada, with the exception of  Alberta and Nova Scotia.  The reason this provision is  important is thai under Bill 19,  when the union applies for a  certification, the employees  were forced to wail 10 days  before a certification vole was  conducted. During this period of  time, employers had the ability  to intimidate and threaten  employees that if they joined the  union, they may lose their jobs  or the company may close down  because they could not afford  decent wages and benefits, thus  not allowing the democratic  process. Democracy is when the  majority of the employees in the  operation have the freedom to  choose to join a union, and by  55 per cent of the employees  making application to join the  union, the majority have made  that decision, without interference.  letters welcome  We welcome letters to the editor on matters of public  interest. However, we reserve the right to edit  submissions for brevity, clarity and legality. Please mail  your letters to:  The Editor  Sunshine Coast News  Box 68  Sechett, B.C.  VON 3A0  Another section that seems to  be drawing attention is Section  68 ��� Replacement Workers.  This section brings fairness and  balance back to the collective  bargaining process by ensuring  that employees who are not able  to resolve negotiations, and are  forced into a strike situation, do  not have an employer circumventing the system, and in fact  continuing to operate the company without any loss of  income. If Ihere is no loss of  income for the employer, the  members on strike have no  leverage.  ll should be recognized that  employers have the right lo lock  out their employees, without the  employees having an option lo  work. If the employers can  place financial pressure on  employees, it js only fair that  employees can pul financial  pressure on employers. This  si&tipn also ensures that  employers refrain from hiring  strike-breakers lo slan lights on  the picket lines.  I would like to delve into  ii I hi-1 cas of Bill 84, but in  order lo make this press release  brief, I will conclude by saying  that labour did not get everything they wanted in this new  proposed Labour Code. Ihere  are still areas that we are unhappy with, bul we recognize and  desire fairness for ourselves and  for the employers. Bill 84 represents a step in the right direction, and is a vast improvement  from Bill 19.  DAKKKI. WONG  President  IWA - Canada, Local 1-71  The times they have changed on the educational front  I happened to be the president of the Sunshine  Coast Teachers' Association in 1971 when the BC  Teachers' Federation had its first ever strike.  I hadn't done much to deserve to be president of  the local, had only been in the district since 1969.  But I suppose there was a vacuum and I got  sucked into it.  The issue thai got us to scale this historic  height, or sink to a historic low, depending on the  viewpoint, was one 1 could support. Practising  teachers were seeking nothing for themselves but  sought improvement in the pensions of retired  teachers.  School Districl #46 had the highest percentage  in the province of its leachers on picker lines during the one-day walkout.  The administration of Ihe school district vas  thunderstruck. They had no idea they were heading  up such a group of radicals. A purge was mounted.  From the inside it looked nothing like that.  There was terrible anguish in the staff room as  strike day approached. There were terrible arguments at recess, at lunch time and after school. The  executive persevered, holding a most shaky coalition of professionals together for whal seemed to  many of them a most unprofessional approach to  disputes.  The president got Ihe flu just days before the  strike and had to get out of his sick bed to put  down a revolt led by the vice-president, who was  musings  John burnside  definitely of the 'teachers are professionals and  never strike' school of thought.  The point of these remembrances is to draw a  distinction between the teachers' attitudes to strike  action 20 years ago and what appears to be iheir  attitudes today.  I watched with some bemusement earlier ihis  school year when the teachers threatened to go on  strike if the school day was lengthened by five  minutes.  The change was proposed lo provide the legal  number of school hours in the school year. A late  Labour Day and a long Christmas holiday had  combined to make it difficult to fit in the legal  number of hours.  The strike didn't happen, but it was truly amazing to see how our educational leaders wriggled to  avoid the threat. After school basketball practices  were counted as instructional hours in some places  and the so-called professional days were included  as instruction to bring the hours up without adding  the five minutes and angering the mighty Teachers  Federation.  I remembered the genuine anguish of my colleagues 20 years ago when they were asked, even  in a good and unselfish cause, to withdraw services  for a single day. There has been a truly remarkable  growth in militancy on the pan of teachers since  1971.  I can to some degree understand this. Teachers  were made the whipping boys in election after  election by Ihe former Socred governments of Bill  Bennet and Bill Vander Zalm, and in election after  election teachers' militancy increased and their  numbers devoting time and money to the electoral  process increased.  I understand too, however.that power is its own  aphrodisiac and the teachers in this province have  power today and just having it makes them itch to  use it.  They are bound into a strong provincial union, a  bargaining group of real clout, but the suggestion  that the school boards should also bargain on a  province-wide basis has our once educational  lambs breathing fire.  Concomitant with all this sinew and muscle on  the part of the employees is the most remarkable  vacillation and weakness on the part of the the  employer. School boards are terrified at the  thought of school strikes and tamely submit for Ihe  most part to any demands made.  The boards have also been a disasuous failure  in the past 20 years in their control of administra  tion costs. About 20 years ago the superintendents  and secretary-treasurers were put on the payroll of  the districts rather than the province.  It has since become commonplace to find  school administrators making much more than the  premier.  Fran and I have been rummaging in trunks a bit  these days and 1 just came across a copy of a 1981  Coast News wrapped around something.  1 was railing about increasing administration  costs, specifically for help to aid then superintendent Denley to do his job, and the secretary-treasurer of the time, Roy Mills, was sternly taking me  to task. I wonder if Mr. Mills would make the  defence today.  Now our governments are behind the financial  eight ball, teachers are breathing fire and making  muscles, school hoards are weak and at lhe mercy  of entrenched bureaucracies whose salaries the  trustees can't seem to control.  Our politicians lament thai increasing education and health costs are going lo bankrupt us  Apart from lamentation there seems to be nothing  else they think they can or should do.  What can be done?

New  Year's has come and gone and  spring has surely shown no sign  of appearing and somehow or  other Ihe question of Ihe genera-  lions comes up.  It is always a question. It is  one of the big questions if you  really look at it, something of a  mystery in fact. How does il  happen that every once in a  while, 30 years used to be the  conventional space, a whole  group of young people appear  on the scene wilh a totally different view about just about  everything. They are, as everyone really knows bul hesitates to  mention, a new generation.  We have one now. It has  been interesting lo watch Ihe  'proffional' observers of our  society, editors of glossy magazines, anchor people on television shows, etc., as they have  been dodging about not really  having anything tn say aboul  (his clear phenomenon.  Iteing longer in the tooth  myself than the average hear, I  have experienced 1 think three  ' distinct generations: the 30s  when we went socialist; the 60s  when we went hedonist; ad  now.  Various editors, publishers  and producers, artists and poets  even, have tried to characterize  this as clearly a new thing on  in a nutshell  the scene. The best they have  come up with lhat I have heard  or seen is the calling of them as  ihe X generation, Ihis doesn't  sirike me as being up to scratch.  These guys after all, gel paid.  The generations, it seems to  me are a continuing mystery.  Ihey used to be defined as the  length of time it look for a man  lo lake over from his father, or  about 30 years; and this in an  odd enough way seemed to  work oui. If we go lo ihe Cambridge History of linglish literature in the I9lh Century we find  it cut up in three, 30 years apart,  three different generations of  writers.  In our own century, the 30s  are clear enough and so ate the  60s. Now we have the 90s and  all we can come up with is the X  generation. Hut we do after all,  know there is something new  there.  What can it be then? 'Ihere is  something changing every day  up and down everyone's street,  but slill there seems to be this  30 year pattern. Is it simply lo  stuart nutter  be left as a mystery of some  sort? I remember clear as a bell  the late 30s when I was 20 and  we were quite conscious of  being some sort of 'new' generation, with writers like Huxley  and Faulkner and T.S. Flint and  Auden and Joyce having new  things in books coming out  every year. Not everyone  agreed, of course, with whal  was going on but the debate was  free and quite outspoken.  There was, for example, Ihe  case of The Nation - a left-oriented journal published in New  York that we all read in Winnipeg. The Nation was edited by  a committee of three and one of  them came lo disagree wilh the  other Iwo and resigned. Joseph  Wood Krittch, however, stayed  on as one of New York's top  drama critics for something like  30 years and he stayed the best  of friends with ihe people he  disagreed with.  Mainly, what Wood Krutch  was saying was that people were  jumping too heedlessly onto Ihe  socialist bandwagon and throw  ing overboard things that we  were all going to live lo regret.  'Ihings like history in schools  replaced by 'social science', and  I agreed wilh him and slill do.  Wood Krutch eventually gave  up in New York, packed every  thing possible onto a station  wagon, went out lo Arizona in  sight oi the mountains and  Wrote a series of quite lovely  nature hooks. This, ir I read the  signs anyway aright, makes  Wood Krutch much closer to the  present 'new' generation than  any of his erstwhile cohorts who  look over the leadership in the  30s. So what does that say lo us  I wonder?  What we seem to have is  something that is staring us in  the lace but what we can't  define. Everyone seems to know  that there is a new generation  aboul. lhe advertisers certainly  know ii Demographers (same  guysi know ii. liven the editors  of the glossy magazines know  it. Bin a new generation is supposed lo be bringing in some  new point of view, and where is  il?  X may be after all a reasonable name, though I for one  really hate to use it. What after  all, if you were 18 would be  your allilude to Ihis world as we  have made it? Ihere is something new out there for sure and  we are just going to have lo wail  and see what goes.

At Ihe schools  the children learn all about the  hole in the ozone layer, air pollution, AIDS, politics and  apartheid.  It all boils down lo one little  word - power. Power hungry  people care only for themselves  .ttid cause destruction to the  environment around them, one  way or another. Respect for our  environment is missing. This is  something you learn, somebody  has lo teach you.  At school kids learn math  'and English starting al kindergarten and going right through  high school, these kids should  be taught respect as well on a  daily basis. This may be our  only chance for survival. Look  .around you and ponder this:  when and why did the human  race, Ihe two-legged ones,  decide that they were superior  ^o our woods, water, land and  wild animals.?  Recently, after reading one  of my older Dutch animal books  I came across a section that discussed the relationship between  animals and humans. When  done properly, this can be a  rewarding experience for both  sides, but most times this experience turns out to be a mentally  cruel and physically abusing situation. Of course, it's the ani  mals which suffer.  F.ven after years of living in  DC, I am still amazed al how  many dogs are 'chain' dogs or  'outside only' dogs. In my  native country chain dogs are  seen as something from the dark  ages.  Please ask yourselves Ihis:  why do I want to lake a  dog.'llnl'orttinalely most people  say, 'A guard dog' or 'for Ihe  children.' lhe poor guard dog  is always outside on a chain, or  in a kennel. They don't get out  lor walks, to play with a ball,  exercise, nothing. No love and  no attention.  These dogs are treated like  outcasts, starved of human  affection and they become lonely souls. I suggest this, if you  want a guard dog only, buy an  alarm system and install it in  your house. It's cheaper and  doesn't waste a life.  The same goes for people  who let their dogs just roam  freely. This way they don't feel  responsible for the animal when  it begins lo bully people or other  animals and even kill other  wildlife.  This is wrong. You shouldn't  lake a pel any more than you  should have children if you're  not prepared to actively take a  role in Iheir lives. Lack of  respect and love for animals is  not a good example for young  impressionable children. They  will grow up wilh no respect,  not only for lhe animals,.,b)il  also for themselves,     ,��� ���,mj  Education is ihe only solution. Children running around  shooting pellet guns at live tar-  gels is unbelievably cruel and  stupid. Why? Some folks and  their families still think hunting  is fun and exciting. Nothing  more macho than sneaking up  on a mother deer and baby grazing on the grass and opening  fire, right? Kill, kill, kill. The  human race should be ashamed,  what kind of mentality is Ihis?  Why not leach your children  how exciling it is to take a camera and try lo gel a snap shot of  a grazing deer? leach them  about the creatures that roam on  the land, lly in the air and swim  in Ihe seas of Ihis great planet  called earth.  Children who grow up with  respect for nature will feel fortunate and appreciate living  here. No power struggles and no  destruction, our planet can still  be saved.

Thai's Ihe problem.  That's what Ihe members of llie Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRD) were all trying to figure out at Iheir meeting Thursday  and so far Ihey haven't been able to find  common ground.  The initial problem began when residents  living near the beach at Davis Hay reported  to the Districl of Sechell lhat sections of  their houses and property have been lorn off  and used by people as fuel for beach fires.  Sechelt mayor Nancy McLarty said Ihe  vandals have taken deck chairs, the lattice  around ihe dumpster, and logs anchoring a  resident's trailer. Other people have had  items go missing off their balconies.  "As long as il's wooden, It's gone," she  said. Her solution is to sel up signs lhal will  prohibit fires between the months of December and March - when Ihe weather isn't great  anyway.  Bul lhat suggestion met with some added  concern and resistance.  "Whal would you suggest we make these  signs out of?" asked Elphinstone regional  director Jim Ourney. Wood, il was noted,  would probably just go into the fire.  A less flammable substance also has its  share of problems. Area F director Jeremy  Frith cited cases of vandalism at Don Bosch  Regional Park where someone look a whole  day to put a hacksaw through metal.  "Build it strong and build it big because  someone will find the lime to destroy it," he  said.  Roberts Creek director Brett McGillivray  objected to the banning of fires altogether:  "That's why they go lo Ihe beach ... I can't  believe this ... that we're actually saying no  fires."  Frilh suggested that perhaps the SCRD  and Sechelt could supply kindling.  McLarty remained dubious. "Thai's just  going to enlarge the problem. Then we'll  have to come up wilh something to keep the  wood dry, otherwise they'll lake someone's  stairs."  The real problem, McLarty said in an  interview later, is liquor. "People aren't oul  there with their families at 10 o'clock at  night in Ihe winter ... Il's kids, it's big kids  and they're down there making fires and  drinking." She said prohibiting fires during  winter months would help police patrol Ihe  problem.  As il is, by Ihe lime police spot a fire, get  out of their cars and get down to lhe beach  all Ihe alcohol has disappeared.  Sechelt RCMP Staff Sgt. Cam Reid said  they will do all Ihey can to discourage fires  on Ihe beach. People should expect increased  patrols lo Ihe area, he said.  He said the vandalism has evolved from a  combinalion of two issues: the lack of natural firewood on Ihe beach, and people Ihere  lale at night who have usually had loo much  lo drink and "don'l know when lo stop."  Davis Bay residents demand dumpster alternatives  Ii) Stuart Burnside  "Il's a shame to have all lhat  garbage and filth there ... It  draws rals. We didn't used to  have rats on Ihe beach, bul we  do now. And they're moving up  into the houses."  Such was the lament of  Davis Hay Community Associa  tion (DBCA) representative  Ernie Wood when he addressed  Sechell council Wednesday. He  came requesting lhat council  take definitive action on what  has seemingly become a perennial problem: the dumpster  localed on the Davis Bay beach.  "The DBCA would like to  CJFFIE  " New Owner"  Gracia Quarry welcomes you to  enjoy the same great food  and great service!  .Belgian Chocolates  are Back!  Free carnations on  Valentine's Day...  have Ihe dumpster removed  from Davis Bay completely,"  Wood said. "... Before we had  Ihe dumpster, we would gel Ihe  odd picnic garbage or a few  paper cups, but since the dumpster was put in, it's done nothing  bul attract garbage, a lot of  garbage, and quite a bit of it is  Ihings Ihe dump won't lake." He  said some of Ihose items included drywall, old tires, paint and  car batteries.  Councillor Bob Wilson  agreed wilh Wood, saying the  dumpster had outlived its usefulness. "Indeed, the dumpster  has become a transfer point for  garbage," Wilson said. "At one  time it had a purpose. It was a  noble gesture brought aboul by  the regional district to provide  something for the (weekend residents), a place they could dump  their garbage on Iheir way (off  the Coast|." Now, he said, altitudes toward Ihe "weekenders"  have changed. "Indeed, if (Ihe  part-time residents) can spend  the weekend here, they can lake  their garbage home wilh Ihem,"  he said.  Wood added that the dumpster problem extended beyond  "weekenders." He said many  year-round residents of Davis  bay take advantage of Ihe dump  ster lo rid themselves of garbage  from missed pick-up days, or of  amounts of garbage that exceeded whal Ihe regional collection  service will pick up.  "At 10 am I drove by and  their was an old chair in Ihere,"  Wood said, "then al 3 pm we  drove by and the dumpster was  over flowing, and there was beat  up garbage can from somebody's house and an old garden  hose. That stuff isn't being left  by weekend residents."  Wilson said the regional district, which slill has responsibility for Ihe dumpster, was  approached about removing it,  bul said Ihey would only do so  when alternative garbage receptacles were installed.  "Indeed, maybe it's lime lo  get more aggressive with the  regional districl," Wilson said.  "... Just lell Ihem lo remove il."  Mayor Nancy MacLarty said  council had last discussed the  Davis Bay dumpster siluation in  August and agreed to replace it  from mid-June of Ihis year lo  mid-September with a number  of smaller receptacles.  "We'll consider your request,  we will do something about  the garbage problem al Davis  Bay you can rest assured," Mac  larty told Wood.  HIGHWAY 101.

A new dioxin lab at fisheries and Oceans'  Institute of Ocean Sciences in  Sidney, BC houses a high resolution, mass spectrometer so  sensitive it can measure these  compounds at levels as low as  several parts per trillion or even  pails per quadrillion. A part per  quadrillion is comparable to one  cent in $10 trillion.  This is the technology needed and used by Fisheries and  Oceans in the research of Dr.  Rob Macdonald, a chemical  oceanographer al Ihe institute.  By analyzing mud cores taken  from the ocean floor in the  Strait of Cieorgia, Macdonald is  piecing together the history of  toxic chemicals found in the  sediments, Bach chemical contaminant has ils own history and  many are not well understood.  Macdonald wants to know more  aboul the environmental fale of  contaminants like furans and  dioxins. He looks at how long  they've been in Ihe sediment,  where they came from, and  whether their concentrations are  increasing or decreasing.  A good example can be  found in the sediment samples  taken in Howe Sound and Hal  letup Basin wilhin the Strait of  Cieorgia. These paint a clear pic-  lure of lead contamination by  human activity.       Concentration levels increased in  ' l<>.U). about the  same lime lead  began to be added  to gasoline. Lead  levels in ihe atmosphere increased  from then until the  use of lead was  phnsodoulihe ginning in the 1970s.  Sinot the lead iso- ^^^^^^  tope composition  of gasolines burned in BC and  Washington Stale were differ-  efct, chemists can tell thai most  of the lead contamination in the  Strait came from Canadian cars,  i liven though our gasoline no  linger carries lead additives, the  cbntaminalion will not disappear. Simply put, the problem is  being buried as more particles  rain down on the ocean floor.  Unless exposed by dredging or  ojher activities, new sediment  layers will eventually isolate the  old contaminants from marine  plants and animals.  I As contaminants enter the  sea, many lend lo stick to silt  afid other particles in the water,  eventually falling to the sea  floor where they become buried  by the continuous rain of settling particles. These sediments,  tljen, often provide undisturbed  rocords, or snapshots, of cultural  inSpact over Ihe pasl century.  Macdonald uses this sedimentary record to develop computer  models which predict the rate al  which present surface sediment  concentrations of toxic compounds will respond to changes  ill industrial activity.  j Macdonald's research has  uncovered glimpses of the  "Invisible" impacts of post-  industrial activities. One pulp-  ajsociated furan called TCDF  appeared in sediments in the  eijrly 1960s, at Ihe same lime  tvyo local pulp mills installed  chlorine bleaching.

A computer  model developed for the core  nearest the mill predicts that  concentrations of TCDF will  decrease by 50 per cent every  eight years or so, as the contaminant is gradually buried by natural sedimentation.  Sediment records show that a  dioxin called OCDD is probably  entering the Strait by  widespread, long-range transport through the atmosphere.       OCDD        first  appears in sediments from aboul  1940 and steadily  increases to a  peak in the late  1960s. By 1990,  the amount of this  dioxin entering  the sediments had  decreased by 50  per cent. The  decline is attributed to emission  controls on incinerators. Low-temperature combustion of plastics is known to  produce dioxins, and OCDD is  also found as a contaminant in  pentachlorophenol, a widely  used wood preservative.  It is also possible lo use the  sediment record to determine  whether a particular industry is  indeed, the culprit. If a contaminant build-up in Ihe sediments  doesn't match the time of a local  industrial activity, then nearby  industrial discharge is not likely  to be lhe primary or only source.  Scientists can then look for  other sources, such as long-  range air transport.  The Strait of Georgia is the  most important marine region of  western Canada, supporting a  complex balance of marine life,  including five species of Pacific  salmon which pass through the  Strait as they migrate out to sea  and return to spawn in coastal  rivers. Commercial, Native and  sport fishermen harvest the fish  and shellfish which depend on  Ihis body of water for their survival.  A map showing sediment core sample test sites.  lhe whole system carries the  stress from incredible population and industrial pressures.  About 50 per cent of BC's population lives in Greater Vancouver and another 20 per cenl lives  in coastal communities bordering the Strait.  Contaminants from population and industrial activities  enter the ocean from the atmosphere, from rivers, and from  sewage and industrial effluents.  Pulp mills, now known to have  produced dioxins and furans  (two members of the immense  organochlorine family), are Ihe  leading source of effluent discharged into the Strait. When  dioxins and furans were measured in sediments and edible  seafood near the mills, the  Department of Fisheries and  Oceans closed the affected areas  to shrimp, prawn, and crab lish-  ' '^vVfi'tle WSeffl ianvdtMFW  chlorine dioxide appears to have  been effective in reducing the  production of these compounds,  pulp mill effluent remains a  complex blend of chlorinated  and non-chlorinated compounds  that pose continued, uncertain  risks to marine ecosystems.  Sediment samples are collected by lowering what is  called a box core through the  water and into the sediment surface. This device removes a  large rectangular cube of mud  which is then winched up to the  ship deck.  The mud is then carefully  sectioned into centimetre slices  and returned to the laboratory  for a battery of analyses, both to  age the sediments and to determine their contaminant burdens.  The cores are usually 50 to 100  cm long, capturing layers from  the past 50 lo 100 years. Sedimentation rate and contaminant  inputs vary from place to place  within the Strait, so cores are  taken from several sites.  Most sediments contain living creatures; some microscopic  and some not, such as worms,  shrimp or crabs.

Scientists allow for this in  evaluating the contaminant history and Ihe potential for contaminants being taken up in  organisms.  What's going to happen in  Ihe future? Macdonald says that  determining historical contaminant trends is a good place to  begin. History allows us to create models to predict the environmental future. If science can  forecast the contaminant burden  in the sediments, then relationships can be developed to predict the contaminant burden in  animals that feed in sediments,  in the animals that eat those animals and so on, up the food  chain.  Additional research on contaminant trends is being pursued The goal is to establish the  fTWlljfiPllsJe and history for all  important contaminants in the  Strait of Georgia basin and other  areas. For contaminants thai  bind themselves to particles in  the water, sediment cores are the  best way to discover their  marine histories.  Susan Stilt is a technical  writer and researcher.

Today  Ihere are three active operations  lell  A short distance down the  road, beyond the resiny smell of  fir, an open-pit limestone quarry  yawns wilh terraces of chalky  grey stone. The sound of trickling rock echoes as the ground  warms, shifts from Ihe freezing  of the nighl before. A drill sits  in front of explosive holes covered with red plastic plugs; ice  shines on piles of rock dust.  At the edge of the mine,  there are deer tracks in Ihe  snow.  Barlier in the century, Blubber Hay was a company town  run by the Pacific lime Company, recalls Frieda Woodheail.  who's lived ou Texada since the  I'Mils She married into a logging family, but "when my  falbcr-iii-law came up and  bought the ptoperty he was a  miller."  Where the current operation  is mining, there used to be  workhouses for Chinese labourers, says Woodhead.  "When they first brought  them here they were considered  second-class citizens and they  used to pay them less than the  white men," she says. "They  used to carry ore in wicker baskets on their shoulders up these  rickety ladders. Those walls  were pretty sheer."  Later, when Ihe old kiln was  lorn down and replaced with a  rotary kiln, "for a mile and a  half up the road there wasn't a  tree thai wasn't white."  There arc also the stories  Frieda Wixidhead  found in all mining towns, like  Ihe car with three people that  went off the road into an old  excavation filled with several  hundred feel of water. "They  never did find il," she says.  Mining on Texada goes back  a long way, to the first discovery of iron ore deposits on Ihe  island in the 1870s and ensuing  political scandal as Armor de  Cosmos, the premier of the  province, and his cabinet  steamed up on a boat to slake  their mineral claims.  "Maybe that's half of ils  magnetism. Il's half metal,"  says Dougan of the island.  In Vananda, Ihe biggest community on the island, there is  Copper Queen Street, Alladin  and .Smelter avenues up from  the hardware and building supply store, named after early  mines on the Texada.  ano_y's  RESTAURANT    IV  r,     HIGHWAY 101.

That's  how they were  making some of  their money'  ���Frieda Woodhead  iles never used lo mix with the  Blubber Bay-iles," says Wood-  head. "They had Iwo bad strikes  in Ihe Pacific Lime Company in  the 1930s." In one instance,  workers making 25 cents an  hour asked for five cents more,  says Woodhead, and the company wouldn't give it to them.  As the strike dragged on, eventually young men wilh families  to support crossed the picket  lines. "That broke families up,"  she says. "The oldtimers stayed  in Blubber Bay. The new families moved lo Vananda."  Ir. its heyday, there was a  jail, a hospital, a newspaper,  even an opera house - the  largest north of San Francisco.  There was also a union hall, and  two hotels with two saloons.  "One was Ihe Buckel of Blood,"  says Woodhead. Not much  remains anymore, as Vananda  has burnt down three limes.  The Marble Bay mine operated where the playing field sits  now, says Woodhead. Today,  behind a lumber mill and a pile  of sawdust covered in snow, an  old kiln still stands sentinel  down on the beach al Marble  Bay.  "Up lo Ihe 1950s there was a  gold mine in Vananda, the Little  Billy," says Woodhead. "It cost  Ihem sixteen dollars a Ion to  produce il for eight dollars of  gold, so it folded."  Sometimes, today, people  talk of starling up Ihe gold  mines again. "I wouldn't put  any money in it," she says.  "There's iron mines all along  the shore. When you go along in  a boal you can see where  they've driven in looking."  A residential and summer  area at Oillics Bay on the west  side of the island now sits in the  afternoon sun at Ihe sile of a former logging operation. Al Shelter Point park, where another  outfit once logged, seagulls  break open shells on the pebbly  beach, Ihe mountains of Vancouver Island in the dislance.  During Ihe counter-culture  era, a commune existed for a  while al Davie Bay, soulh of  Shelter Point, where back-to-  the-landers sel up house on  property owned by Ihe (iemstar  mining company.  "They were the so-called  flower children," says Wood-  head. "They were going to live  off the beach and make Iheir  own way. Il's a nice dretun, but  it's pretty tough to realize.  "A few of them were growing pot. That's how Ihey were  making some of Iheir money.  Ihey were telling us it's got so  cheap you can't make any  money anymore."  On Ihe silent cast side of the  island, the rocky shores made a  good place for illegal stills and  rum-running at various times in  Ihe island's history.  "I know there were stills out  here," says Woodhead. "Once,  two fellows wl)P. r,iUi���th�� slill  heard Ihe police coming. They  threw it in the strait and took off  so they didn't get caught."  "You could get over there  and hide a thing or yourself,"  says Dougan. Often bad weather  kept others away, and there are  slill lots of places in the forest  where a helicopter can't land.  For Ihe most part, Texada  keeps ils secrets. The tracks  from Ihe old quarries have been  ripped up long ago and many of  the mines have sunk back into  the ground.  "The roads are all overgrow,n  and bushed over," says Wood-  head. "You'd never find Ihem."  - to be continued...

A monstrous crime, incest,  the victims, innocent children:  One in four girls, one in six  boys, Health and Welfare tells  us, are victims in Canada. Not  all survive.  Both Fraser and Ashby-Rolls  had locked away all memories  of incestuous acts for four  decades. For Trysh Ashby-Rolls  the memories were frozen,  unreachable. But the damage to  their emotional selves - damage  they did not comprehend - corroded Iheir adult lives.  She became a confused,  unhappy, controlling, needy  grown-up trying to keep out all  possible hurt while desperately  hurting inside.  For Ashby-Rolls, surviving  was the long agonized journey  through hell. As her memories  'defrosted', she did have the  support of friends and the aid of  a trusted counsellor lo help her  reach the lime when she could  take charge of her own healing.  The time when she could hear  the small voice within her saying, "Only you can take care of  you." Choosing to heal is  beyond survival; healing is a  way of life, a spiritual path.  Dreams jarred loose the  memories of the little girl each  of these Iwo had been. They saw  and heard the child within. Each  had lived Ihe abuse, "now was  the time of remembering and  sorrowing for Ihe child - the  child within."  The deeds of those fathers  were criminal. Ashby-Rolls  found she did not have to love  her father nor hate him; let him  and my childhood memories  depart. Some survivors find it  difficult too, to let go of anger  toward their mothers who were  unaware of what was going on,  or worse, too fearful to take any  action.  For Ihe perpetrator of incest  the sentence is often only probation, for the victim survivor, it is  life.  by Agnes Labonte  Gibsons Lions Club invites you to be a proud  contributor to the Make a Wish Foundation of BC.

Hydro has slated they use a  selective tendering process and  accepted bids for the job from  10 companies, three of which  were from the Sunshine Coasl,  one from the US and the rest  from the Lower Mainland. The  lowest bidder won the contract -  it's that simple.

Most seem to share in the  view that public transportation  should be extended. It was suggested that a leen should sit on  the RCCA executive committee.

Kuth Forrester photo  Scouting new pack options  hy Kuth Forrester  For the past six years, Don and Gayle Kinneard  have been leaders of the Halfmoon Bay Beavers  and Cubs. What started out with just one boy has  developed to where there are now some 14 or 15  involved in the movement.  The mad has not been an easy one, since lhe  Halfmoon Hay area is not included in any of the  fund raising projects in which members on olher  parts of the Coast may participate.  "Because our fundraising is limited by district  to Halfmoon Bay itself while other groups have the  use of the malls etc., there are never enough funds  to cover costs which we have been covering out of  our own pockets for the past six years. Requests  for funds from District have been denied, although  Ihey make substantial donations lo olher groups.  Ml requests for help or support have been denied,"  said Dan Kinneard.  "Scouting, al least on the Sunshine Coasl, has  become a political organization, and we cannot  reconcile ourselves lo something so diametrically  opposed to Ihe principles of Scouting. For Ihis reason, neither of us is prepared to carry on as leaders  after ihis year."  It is not only the lack of financial help which  made the Kinneards come to this decision.  lor the past four years, there has been an annual  family camp at Camp Burley on ihe May holiday  weekend under iheir leadership. This year Ihey  were told they could not use the camp, and that in  order to take any boys camping, Don, who has  advertising  deadline  February .28  5^**��*��* (jt>cidit~  The magazine for explorers of the Sunshine Coast   ��� 1993 edition ���  i  i  i  p'HTTI  Contact Rich Rawting at 886-2622 to reserve space  gtklen HMtnW V  been running camps for many years, was informed  he must now take a camping course.  "Those who have been to camp with us know  how ridiculous ihis is!"  According '.., Don and Oayle, they have, for the  past two years been hanging on because they did  not want to disappoint the boys, but the lime came  when a decision had to be made.  "We are prepared to carry on as an independent group, so longer affiliated with Scouts Canada. Should this happen, there would be no change  in the program the boys would follow - they  would be taught true Scouting principles, would  slill be able to earn badges and lake part in most of  Ihe same activities."  There are two other leaders who must decide if  they want lo carry on the Scout group as is, and it  is also up lo the parents to make a decision in the  mailer.  "Should Ihe leaders decide not to carry on, and  you still wish your son lo be a member of Scouts  Canada, Ihere is a Beaver group in West Sechelt  and a Cub pack in Sechelt. Should you wish lo  form an independent group we will call a parents'  meeting to decide how to proceed."  If you have questions or would like more information, call either Don or Gayle Kinneard.  The parents of boys will no doubt be anxious to  have Ihis controversy cleared up soon for lhe sake  of Ihe young people who are always lhe brunt of  such debates and for whom the outcome is important.  \ JJ \ fit  -Ji     \ n    aiiinintiuino >itli iol /hi ���  gitintnn  ",'|t;|l!  iln*j  ..i itiodmH in  by Joyce Ostry "    ���*������> ***_���; ,,;  It seems we can assume spring is jusl around the comer and if we  would count days we'd And lhat winter is half over.

During the noon hour every Tuesday through Thursday, an interactive community program is taking place.  Volunteers from Ihe communily come to  the school to share their knowledge and  expertise ranging from the esoteric to the  mundane. The program is enthusiastically  supported by students and staff. Potential  programs include ancient history, quilting,  gardening, astronomy, golf, sewing, yoga  and pet care, among others. The program has  already hosted beeswax candlemaking, carpentry skills, basic banking, hiking, baking  and board games.  Although Madeira Park elementary  applied last November to the ministry of  education's curriculum development branch  for funding for this pilot project bul were  turned down in January. The project proposal was a result of a school needs assessment,  a goal-selling workshop for staff and parents  and a review of present programs and the  goals of the I .earning for Living curriculum  guide.  Pal Orr is the teacher who coordinates the  program. "We decided to Iry and run the  program anyway and Ihe response of sludenis, teachers and Ihe communily has been  amazing," she said. "Some programs have  harbour watch  Elementary school  drawing from  community resources  had more than 100 students sign up for them.  Because we are a rural school without access  to the cultural events that a school in Vancouver would have access to, we were looking for an enrichment program. The Learning for Living program has two components.  One is based on life skills and the other is  enrichment."  In talking about the life skills components, Orr gave some examples, "We had  Sandra Crosby from the credit union come in  and spend an hour showing the kids how to  Fill out forms for deposits and withdrawals.  Thai's something most of us take for granted  but il's an important life skill.  "Thorn White from AC Hardware came  in and showed the kids how to make and  slain some bookcases, which were later raffled off. The kids were so enthusiastic. I try  lo schedule one cooking event each week as  well. This program provides students wilh  choices and gives them a chance to tasie  something new.  "They don't have to go out into the play  area al lunch if they have pre-regislered for  one of the programs. The kids make a commitment through pie registration and it helps  to develop a sense of responsibility and self-  determination."  Parents and members of ihe community  are welcome to be part of these noon hour  activities. "Lasl week we went on a hike and  we couldn't have done it without parents  participating," Orr said. "We had 60 kids for  the hike. For beeswax candlemaking we had  141 registrants signup.  "Some of the people who have come in to  share their skills have been really surprised  by lhe level of enthusiasm Ihe students have  for the opportunity to explore what are new  skills for them."  One of the enrichment activities coming  up is a trip to hear the Vancouver Symphony  and lo Ihe Vancouver art gallery for 16 grade  6 students. The tickets were provided as a  corporate donation by Howe Sound Pulp and  Paper.  Orr would like musicians lo come and  demonstrate their music and explain their  instruments. She's also looking for someone  to leach lhe sludenis how to play chess.  Although lhe program is hooked through  February, the months of April, May and June  are open. Anyone wanting lo share a special  skill with Ihe sludenis can contact Pat Orr at  Madeira Park elementary at 883-2373.  Increase Your  Income!!!

They're talking about Iheir  dreams, analysing ihem and  getting in touch wilh their subconscious. And they're discovering they are stronger than they  thought.  "Il's jusl lhe most powerful  way of working lhal I know of,"  said Thompson, who's incorporated dream work inio her Vancouver psychology practice.  "Il's exciling. It's interesting," she says, "Everyone  remembers their dreams."  She admits dream work is so  popular, she's an automatic hit  at parties once people find out  what she does, "The first thing  they ask is 'I had this dream last  night... what does il mean?'"  So just whal do they mean?  It depends on the individual,  says Thompson.  Dreams come from the psyche, she says, from different  parts of oneself whether that is  the abandoned child, the bossy  parent, the effective, efficient  secretary. Or, she suggests, it  could be someone or something  an individual has not thought  aboul in a long time.  "Some people will see themselves painting, something  they've never consciously  thought about or talked about  and yet they dream about it,"  she says.  The most important thing to  do in such a case is to figure out  why the individual has had this  dream, what the message is and  whal he or she is going to do  aboul it.  "It can open up whole parts  of their lives that have been like  a closed book for them," she  says.  Dreams can often be  metaphors for something else,  Opening doors to the psyche,  metaphors and premonitions  and out of life - it's time lo slow  down and have a rest,"  Bul each case has lo be  explored individually to get its  true message, she says.  "I really operate under the  belief lhat everybody has Iheir  own understanding of their  dreams. They created the dream,  ihey know at a deep  unconscious place what it all  means.  "The system that I use works  wilh the feelings Ihey have in  Ihe body while they're talking  about the dream and Ihe ideas  Ihey have lhat come lo them as  they talk aboul il."  It's a bit like solving a mystery or putting together a puzzle,  she says. As people discuss their  dreams, more clues are found  and more insight and personal  power is gained.  There is never  anything too scary  to look at in a  dream even  though it may  evoke painful  memories'  - Kamala Thompson  "I had a symbol thai kept  appearing in my dreams over a  period of about six years,"  Thompson said about her own  experience.  "It was always a red-headed  woman who just came in the  dream and went oul. Sometimes  there would be a group picture  and she'd be in the back row or  Tho-upson says.

"It's such a clear metaphor,"  she says. It can often mean the  person is "tunning out of energy  street and I'd jusl catch her  out of the corner of my eye and  she'd jusl turn around the comer  and disappear or if I was getting  on the bus I would look oul the  window and she'd be walking  away."  Thompson says although she  always saw this woman, she was  never anywhere near her, nor  had she ever talked so Thompson ignored her, even as she  wrote out her dreams.

"It was a part of myself, my  feminine self thai I had totally  ignored," says Thompson. She  was a girl Thompson had known  in highschool, the most attractive girl in school "and I had  never thought of myself as being  in any way like her.  "I sort of denied Ihis whole  part of myself - sexually active,  vivacious and charming and  those very personal private  Ihings."  Thompson discovered lhat  her subconscious was trying to  lell her something. "That there  is an attractive woman in here  that you're not paying any attention lo.  "It's very empowering," she  says.  There are frightening elements to a person's psyche too,  she says - nightmares.  Nightmares come from a  place of deep anxiety, she says,  manifesting from childhood  incidents lhat have since been  suppressed.  "Most children are afraid of  the dark, afraid of big animals,  afraid of big adults who overpower them and hurt Ihem," she  says.  And the child will often bury  the feelings because he or she  hasn't the skills to deal wilh  them at that point in his or her  life.  That's when the nightmare  can take hold, triggered by a  modem source. And the primary  culprit for such triggering?  "I bet Ihe reason thai a lol of  whal happens is because of the  graphicness of the news media  now  so much of whatYoh TV  is hard lo handle," Thompson  says. If a person was beaten as a  child, Ihe TV vision of a policeman beating someone up can  bring back Ihe memories of the  abuse.  Bul, she's quick lo add there  is never anything too scary to  look at in a dream even though  it may evoke painful memories.  "There's nothing thai hasn't  happened anyway," she says,  "and lhe besl thing is to just get  it out there and look at it, lo  know you survived it and  become powerful from il."  Thompson says she also  believes dreams can be premonitions.  She says in nearly all dream  work she does, people tell her  about incidents involving near  accidents averted by dreams.  Even if it's jusl a dream  aboul having a dental cavity, she  tells her clients to go see their  dentist and get il checked out,  "Enough times il happens lhat  there is something wrong with  thai tooth.  :  "Anything like that that  _cpmes,up in the house, the family, Ihe car, I'd check it oul on  Ihe physical level first before I'd  start to analyze it," she says.  "At some level we all know '  everything and some people are  just a little more tuned in than  others."  Thompson is bringing her  dream workshop over to the  Sunshine Coast, Feb. 28, as part  of the school district's continuing education program.  She says all people interested  in participating need is a notebook and a dream and be prepared lo experience a "very  intense day."  No one finds it boring, she  promises.  "We're not all lhal different  underneath," she says. "Basically Ihere is only one story. We all  came into Ihe world to want to  love and be loved and as children some of lhat gets squashed  in us. We all want to express  ourselves and be more of who  we are.  "I totally believe that dreams  are a divine gift and ihey are  there to help us grow."

"By today's slandards they  weren't much in the way of  trucks," says While. "And we  overloaded Ihem." Often a  three- or four-ton Iruck would  carry 30 or 40 Ions of limber.  "They loaded Ihose trucks so  heavy I couldn't gel mine into  high gear on the level," he  recalls. Eventually he was told  lhe Irick was lo rev the Iruck  high In-fore shifting. "Wc were  changing motors almost every  Sunday."  Recently While, who lives in  Pender Harbour, spoke about  slatting out in Ihe woods to the  Truck Loggers Association at  their lillieth annual convention  in Vancouver,  ll all started, he says, when  he was 13 years and his dad, a  bulchcr, needed someone to  deliver meal lo various logging  camps in the Prnser Valley. "My  father marched me lo  Ihe police station after         rehearsing my new  binlulale... From then  on I was a truck driver."  A short while later,  he drove trucks  between Abbolsford  and Vancouver as the        trucking business  began lo grow in Ihe 1930s,  Businesses soon discovered  trucks were a cheaper form of  transportation than railroads  "partly because of kids like me  driving Ihem," says White.  "...The wages were minuscule..."  In Ihose days there was the  '29 Chev l-lon, Ihe '32 Chev  itnd Ihe '34 Chev "a wonder of  wonders witlt five speeds."  Mostly Ihe trucks would be used  up in a year, although some  made it lo the two-year mark.

WtA  Photo courtesy of lionk White  7n the bush,  you could  forget the  highway rules'  began lo drive logging trucks for  Bill Schnarre of Veddcr Mountain in I934 lhal While says his  ideas about trucking really  changed.  In the bush, you        could   forget   Ihe  highway rules. "On  the highway trucks  you nursed it along  and looked after it  and babied il," says  White. "In logging,  they'd drop a log on  lhe Iruck and the  truck would shake,  Ihe doors would lly open. Thai  was run of lhe mill. Sometimes  the truck would roll right over  wilh Ihe load shifting. They'd  gel lhe cais oul and turn it back  on ils wheels again."  Under such conditions, braking systems were known lo go a  little haywire. Says White.  "After a while we had all Ihe  soft spols picked oul on Ihe road  where you could make an emergency slop if you hud lo."  Being a roadside mechanic  was also a standard occupation  for truckers.  "On lite highway when you  had a broken axle it was a big  catastrophe, bul with Bill you  jusl fixed the Iruck on lhe road,"  says While.  Once, working on  lhe rear of a Iruck,     ������������  wilh     mechanical  deliberations almosl   7�� 1939, White  compicic, they found began contract  Ihey had Ihe wrong       ��  .,,.     ,11!   .

"For years after thai, whenever anything went wrong,  somebody would say 'I'ul a  piece of string in it'."  In 1939, While began contract hauling for himself. Once,  during Ihe second world war, he  was driving on Vancouver  Island with a chain upside down  on the lop of Ihe truck and accidentally pulled down the wires  between Nanaimo and the Bamfield communications centre.  Eventually, contract hauling  ii rl .

But meanwhile in        lhe 1940s a whole  new lypc of independent gyppo logging  was coining into  being. Al firsl, says  While, "trucking was  used primarily to  pull out Ihe corners  the railroads couldn't  get to."  But by Ihe 1940s, "All up  and down the coasl Ihere were  guys taking oul bits of timber  with Irucks and cats and a little  donkey." Eventually, White  began his own logging operation  at Green Bay on Nelson Island.  Aboul the mythology that's  since grown up around the  gyppo logger and his often haywire machinery, While says,  "Most of these guys in Ihe  woods you couldn't gel litem  away from big machinery...  They get dirty al eight o clock in  the morning and they're happy."  <5&e(5>ur  Q&akntine  Saturday. Feb. 13th  A truly romantic evening of fine dining.

In the  earliest days, the smugglers  were completely blatant, hauling the booze out of Vancouver  to rendezvous with pickup ships  off the American coast.  Things tightened up in 1929,  when the US government persuaded Canada to prevent  liquor-laden ships leaving Canadian ports without a specific  destination.  This complicated the business considerably and the Canadian smugglers initiated the use  of mother ships which waited  outside the 12-mile limit with  enormous cargoes of high proof  spirits, brought from as far away  as Tahiti.  Smaller ships hauled Ihem  from Vancouver for lhe mother  ships and took on cases of  liquor lo supply the American  pickup boals, keeping watchful  eyes always alerted for the US  coast guard cutters.  Fraser Miles stumbled into  the irade quite by chance. Nineteen years old and fascinated by  electronics, he had just finished  a radio operator's course in  Vancouver and aspired to continue his studies at university.  Jobs were scarce in those  depression years, however and a  college education took money.  Through a fellow student, Miles  obtained a few hours work loading a boat at Coleman Evans  dock. When ihe wireless operator failed to show up, Miles was  hired to take his place. The boat  turned oul to be a rum-runner.  Thus, Fraser Miles became a  member of that taciturn fraternity. After a paralyzing bout of  sea-sickness he gradually  adjusted to life on the deep  water. Miles' first ship, Ihe Rulh  B, was ostensibly a fish packer  but it hadn't carried fish in  years.  From 1931 to 1933, Miles  ran with the rum-runners. He  was technically Ihe 'sparky' or  radio operator, but he also  stowed and unloaded liquor  with the rest of the crew, lhe  trips involved sailing all the way  down the West Coast, meeiing  wilh a mother ship off llie  shores of Mexico and hauling  north again with a full load of  liquor.  The Ruth B was a cramped  dirty ship and Miles recalls it  with distaste.  His second ship, the Ryou II  was roomier and better  equipped, although captained by  a drunken, incompetent man of  odd habits named 'hot pants'  Harry Lind. Miles describes  I .ind and his other shipmates  wilh amusing accuracy. The  ones he liked were invariably  referred to as 'high type fellas.'  Miles worked rum row until  mid-1933, carefully banking his  money.  When the repeal of prohibition brought an end lo the liquor  smuggling, he had saved enough  to finance his university studies.  He majored in electronics and  for many years, was assistant  manager in engineering for DC  Hydro.  Today, Miles is retired in  West Vancouver where he  builds boals for a hobby. His  wry memoirs are well worth the  attention of any reader.

In (he days of coal sacks and sawdust  delivery around Ihe Vancouver area and with  lite advent of Black Ball ferries in August of  1950, he soon became one of the pioneers in  freighting supplies between Vancouver and  Gibsons when he teamed up wilh his partner  John Wilson as Gibsons Cartage.  1 first met Robert when I began commuting between my weather office in Vancouver  in 1952 on a daily basis, thanks to George  Pauline granting me the first commuter's  ticket, 10 rides for $7 between Horseshoe  Bay and Gibsons Landing.  Needless lo say either Bobby or John  Wilson was my free ride into Vancouver  along Marine Drive and over Ihe l.ions Gate  bridge, returning again the same evening  '...John Wilson recalls a  certain'party at Wally  Graham's (the undertaker)  bouse when Bobby, on tbe  sleepy side from a few too  many, was placed in an  empty casket to sleep it off  Monday through Friday, invariably with a  six- pack of beer homeward bound.  In later years, Robert worked with Gibsons Building Supplies and later al the Port  Mellon pulp mill. One of his favourite pas-  limes was being with Ihe Volunteer Fire  Brigade in Gibsons for many years.  He was fun loving and his old partner,  John Wilson, recalls a certain party at Wally  Graham's (the undertaker) house when  Bobby, on the sleepy side from a few loo  many, was placed in an empty casket to  sleep it off. It takes little imagination to leam  his reaction when he came to and looked  around him. "He swore off drink for some  time," said John.  Wilh Robert's passing, the common man  has lost a very true and trusted friend and I  suppose when he pays the loll through St.  Peter's gale, he will ask for a ripe steak,  'cause way back in my early days as meat  manager at lhe new SuperValu I would  invariably tuck away a dark porterhouse or  T-bone in the cooler, one that had lo come  off the counter nn turning colour.  When il was near green I would pass it  along to Bobby for 49 cents a pound while  my meat wrapping girl, Pearl Feeney, shuddered at the thought.

Whal do you say after you  say "Hello?"  Who will visit when family  members need a break? Who  will visit when friends find it  too difficult to be there?  Hospice is people - people  who are trained and available to  be wilh, to talk wilh, to answer  questions - people who give of  themselves and then tell us how  much they receive.  Hospice is aboul listening,  very actively. Hospice is about  being ihere - when needed and  wanted.  Hospice is health with a difference. Hospice coordinators  and volunteers work wilh other  members of the heallh care  team.  They help dying people live  their lives - whether days,  months or years, as comfortably  and fully as possible. Hospice  cares for lhe whole person - an  iiilcrme.flam of spiritual etttc  and modern medical knowledge.  It is about encouraging people  to make decisions for themselves - it is about supporting  them on their journey.  Hospice is a program whereby volunteers provide support to  people who are dying, people  who are caring for someone who  is dying, and people who are  grieving. Hospice workers visit  in homes, hospital and care  facilities. There is no fee. Anyone can make a referral.  The Hospice program has  been on the Sunshine Coast  since 1987. During that lime,  Martha and Bob Scales have  provided training for 85 Sunshine Coast residents, a number  of whom are current Hospice  volunteer visitors or home support workers. In one month  recently, 26 volunteers gave 340  hours of their time to care for 51  people.  Hospice training is for anyone who wants to know more  about some of the issues and  feelings that dying and grieving  people encounter.  ihe trainers offer Ihe participants Ihe opportunity to explore  their own feelings and experiences about death and dying -  and provide a safe environment  in which lo do this.  Hospice is about caring - not  about knowing all the 'right'  answers.

Swaney  Now lhat winter has released  its icy grip and the weather is  turning decidedly spring-like,  our thoughts turn to baseball.  Or more specifically, the  estimated 500 or youngsters  who will be lining up for registration Feb. 26 and 27 and  March 5 and 6. An astonishing  number considering the size of  the population in Ihe (iibsons  area. The numbers seem to indicate that Ihere is definitely a  need for organized recreation  for children.  However, tliere may be more  than a few unhappy young faces  come signup day. The fact of  lhe matter is thai without more  adull help, Ihe organizers may  have to limit registration numbers. There is much work lo he  done behind Ihe scenes and  when lhe executive members  number only seven people (as  was the case last year) ihis  becomes a mammoth task and  burnout is the inevitable result.  Lasl season's roster matched  up 460 players, aged five to 14  lo 36 teams in five divisions.  The average cost per player was  $55 with $25 to $30 or that  coming from registrations. The  remainder was generously provided by 31 local sponsors and  by in-club fundraising in the  form of lottery sales. This funding provided equipment, uniforms, publicity, clinics and  tournaments and total expenses  were in excess of $25,000.  Besides registrations and  fundraising, executive members  are responsible for coordinating  teams and equipment, scheduling games, field hooking and  preparation, umpires, coaches,  clinics, tournaments, correspondence and budgeting. There tire  a total of 15 executive posilions  and Ihe job is made easier if all  15 positions can be filled.

The tug  was pulling in to the wharf  when skipper Norm Cartwright  noticed smoke curling up from  beside the gas pumps on the  float. He gave a warning blast  on his horn, cut loose a couple  of boats, turned on his monitor,  and began to spray the float  wilh ocean water..  An announcement by Forests  and Lands Minister, Dave Parker and MLA Harold Long  caused a small furor among  Coast residents and Vancouver  media people when Parker and  Long announced the acquisition  of 182 hectares near Port Mellon for use as a dangerous  goods port and forest related  industries.  10 YEARS AGO  The roof of the largest building in Egmont was raised on  February 4 al the site of the old  Egmont Marina.  The new pub and social club  will be called The Back Eddy  Pub. West Coasl architecture  permeates the modern 3344  square foot structure, which  overlooks one of the more  scenic views of Jervis Inlet. Joe  and Trudy Muller are Ihe owners and driving force behind the  most ambitious project Ihe Sunshine Coast has seen in over a  year.  20 YEARS AGO  Gibsons Council will seek  information from the provincial  forestry department on Ihe possibilities of a debris cleanup in  coastal waters. Mayor Walter  Peterson told council that  beaches in some places are  piled high wilh debris and boat  traffic is suffering as a result of  debris in Ihe water.  35 YEARS AGO  Fred Holland was hired by  Gibsons Council as maintenance man at a $3200 yearly  salary.  40 YEARS AGO  One hundred persons attended a farewell function honouring Father L. Vincy who is  moving to Alberta after almosl  five years as Sechell Band  school principal.  SPCA NEWS  This three-month-old lab-  cross was recently hit by a  car and Is recovering al the  SPCA.

Hw  ttmrn Coast News, February 8,  1993  27  Municipal mix-up draws  disgruntled developer's ire  by Charles Hart  A developer who saw his  zoning application for duplex  housing defeated Tuesday after  more than 20 months of discussions wilh (he Town of Gibsons  hasn't ruled out taking legal  action against the municipality.  Peter Cruikshauk, president  of Trafalgar House Lands Ltd.,  said Ihe town had every intention of approving the zoning  unlil October, when the issue of  development cost charges  became a sticking point.  The application, for 16  duplex units on a 1.3 acre parcel  al the corner of Burns and True-  man roads in lower Gibsons,  first came forward in June 1991  just before Ihe municipality  imposed a moratorium on new  development.  Cruikshank said he was told  at that time that development  cosl charges of $ 1,900 would  apply.  The application finally went  to a rezoning public hearing in  March 1992, by which time the  town had passed a new development cost charge bylaw - for  water and sewer costs.  The developer was then told  he would also have lo pay Ihose  costs: amounting lo a three-fold  increase on whal was originally  proposed.  The town had to call a second public hearing in June 1992  for the land-use change because  Ihe planning department had  omitted to make the required  amendment to the official communily plan.  Town planning  policies  questioned  The developer said he then  investigated municipal regulations and found that development cost charges (designed to  assist municipalities in paying  for increased service needs associated with new development)  cannot be levied for duplexes or  single family housing.  Informed of the Municipal  Act restriction, Ihe town then  requested a voluntary contribution toward water and sewer  costs, Cruikshank said, adding  his lawyer advised against doing  so since it could appear he was  trying to 'purchase' zoning.  Council tabled second reading of Ihe zoning bylaw Oct. 20  and finally rejected the application Tuesday without discussion, after receiving a report  from administrator Dan Legg  suggesting consideration be  given to the impact on water and  sewer charges and the town's  ability to finance expansions.  In the report, Legg notes:  "All parties are now aware lhat  Trafalgar Mouse Lands Ltd.,  can structure its development  such that development cost  charges would not be payable.  The developer has confirmed  thai he does not intend to pay  development cost charges and  so presumably he would arrange  the project lo this end."  Cruikshank, who said his  proposal has not altered since  June 1991, objected to the innuendo he had altered his plans lo  avoid extra costs.  "It was their own incompetence that got them into this situation. To string you along for  20 months with every indication  to proceed and then change their  mind doesn't seem lo me to be  fair... A normal zoning in any  credible municipality takes three  to four months."  Mayor Eric Small commented: "All of us were under a mistaken impression (that DCCs  applied)."  Cruikshank noted the town's  draft for a new OCP proposes  much higher densities for the  Burns/Trueman site (36 units  per acre), and said his plans  were designed lo maintain the  small town atmosphere of Gibsons.  "If you want to collect  DCCs, you're not going to keep  il a small town - you have to  build large units," he said. He  argued thai his development  proposal would have amounted  to a 16-fold increase in the tax  base for the Burns/Trueman site.  Having incurred between  $3,000 and $4,000 direct  expenses since September on  Ihe understanding the zoning  was going to be approved,  Cruikshank and said he is considering suing for damages.

The fishermen joined  between 500 and 1,000 other  members of the Fishermen's  Survival Coalition, who voiced  their concerns to the government's standing committee on  fisheries and forestry, as well as  olher officials including Patrick  Chamut, director general of fish-  erics' Pacific region.  Primarily, local fishermen  say they're concerned about  protection of the resource. "The  aboriginal fisheries strategy has  failed to do lhat," said coalition  member Ron Malcolm. "It can  only be achieved by one governing body. That's DFO."  Fishermen say they're worried about the fragmentation  which will happen with a series  of agreements between different  bands, many of them involving  gibsons notes  Ron Malcolm  lhe same salmon stocks, and are  afraid aboul lhe sort of carte  blanche authority they see being  handed over to native groups.  "Even us aside, are Ihe fish  going lo survive it?" asks Malcolm. "And then is it any benefit  to anyone?"  So far, he says, the commercial industry has been "left out  of the meaningful negotiating  process," and fishermen aren't  reassured by promises of "consultation: It really doesn't mean  very much."  Local MLA and Opposition  Leader Gordon Wilson also  recently spoke against the new  Les Fowler  fisheries agreements. "To establish two separate commercial  fisheries ... with Iwo separale  authorities I think is entirely the  wrong way to go," he said in an  interview.  "Fish don't swim around  with a little flag on Ihem saying  'I'm an aboriginal fish or a non-  aboriginal fish' ... It's just one  resource.  "You're not going to have  people accept the fact that  there's two sets of rules," said  Wilson. "If it goes ahead we'll  have major conflict on Ihis  Coasl."  Among    actions    being  Billy Griffith  planned by the larger Fishermen's Sirvival Coalition is a  lobbying trip to Ottawa to meet  with Ihe BC Conservative caucus and fisheries critics as well  as other politicians. A court  challenge to the fisheries programs is also being considered  Meanwhile, the tone of the  local meetings is one of "frustration," says Malcolm.  A survey on the economic  impact of Ihe fishing industry on  local communities - which local  fishermen hope will further their  argument - is expected nexl  week from the regional district's  economic development office.  The Town of Gibsons has  agreed to set take on the task of  setting up a new committee to  organize and manage the Sea  Cavalcade after the Gibsons and  District Chamber of Commerce  ratified its decision last week to  hand responsibility for Ihe festival over to a non-profit society."  Council said it would invite  involvement from neighbouring  communities that usually also  participate in Ihe Sea Cavalcade.  Cllr. Ted Hume, council's  liaison to the chamber, also  Free Bruce Hardwood  Floor Clinic and one Day Sale  (   ' rk'L    -Ui-    si'  ' !    | ,  , i , .

"They're having a bad time,"  said Hume, "but it's going to  work out - that was my basic  feeling at the meeting this morning."  The chamber has said that it  would revive the Pageant celebrations nexl year.  Meanwhile, Ihe town has  asked the chamber lo submit a  financial statement before the  municipality will hand over its  customary fee for service grant  this year.  Maritime museum sunk  The Sunshine Coast Maritime Historical Society's bid  for public land in Gibsons to  build a maritime museum hit a  reef Tuesday when council  denied the request.  "Council's conclusion is that  the community is really too  small to accommodate and carry  on a second museum," said  Mayor Eric Small.  Council recommended the  maritime society contact the  Elphinstone Pioneer Museum  Society to coordinate interests.  RSP Seminar!
