V��V 1X4    ^.T  COAST^NEWS  50 cents per copy on newsstands  ESTABLISHED     1945  March 15,1993 Volume 47 Issue 11  Minimal Coast UI change expected, officials say  by Jane Seyd  Changes to the unemployment insurance program expected to pass soon in  the federal parliament won't have a  huge impact on the $16 million in benefits paid-out annually to claimants on  the Sunshine Coast.  But critics say it could give employers undue power'over workers and give  huge powers of discretion to government agents who will be charged with  making decisions.  Bill C-l 13, when it is passed, will  mean anyone who is either fired or  But new legislation likely to spawn more appeals  quits a job voluntarily without an  approved reason will no longer be able  to collect UI benefits. Those who do  qualify for UI will get 57 per cent of  their previous wage rather than the current rate of 60 per cent.  Nationally, it's estimated that about  six per cent of those currently collecting  UI fall into the category of people who  were fired from their jobs or quit with  out "just cause." But of the current  claimants on the Sunshine Coast, only  six out of 1,853 people were disqualified from immediate benefits because  they'd quit without good reason.  Currently, those who quit "without  just cause" are subject to a waiting period of 14 weeks before benefits begin  and receive 50 per cent of their wage  rather than 60 per cent.  Says Robert Rae, local manager of  Canada Employment and Immigration,  "The deterrent has always been there."  Under the new rules, the reasons  acceptable as "just cause" are spelled  out more clearly than in the past  Among them are dangerous working  conditions, the need to accompany a  spouse or care for children, sexual  harassment, excessive overtime, and  "antagonistic relations" between  employee and employer. But to a large  extent, those reasons - which are judged  by employment agents - are still open to  interpretation. "It is always a judgment  call," says Rae, and "the less a black  and white situation it is, the more likely  it is there will be discrepancies."  One result of the changes will likely  be a lot more appeals, says Rae, all of  which cosl time and money and could -  if the numbers are large enough -  threaten to bog down the system.  furn to page 3  School  options  weighed,  discussed  by Roxanne Gregory  Concerned parents met with  school board representatives at  Madeira Park Elementary  Wednesday to discuss the  options presented in the APRA  report for long-term school districl facilities development  The APRA report outlines  ihree proposals based on population projections. Option one  calls for 10, kindergarten to  grade 7 schools on the Coast  and three senior secondaries.  Option two would see nine elementary schools (K-6), four  intermediate schools (7-10),  and one grad school located in  Sechelt with n projected enrolment of 1,000 by 1996. Option  three would create nine elementary schools (K-5), four  intermediate schools (6-9) and  three senior schools 10-12.  Madeira Park Elementary  (MPE) remains the anomaly in  this series of proposed changes.  In the second option, MPE  would become a K-3 school,  while PHSS would house  grades 4-10. Under Ihe third  option, MPE would become a  K-3 facility, while PHSS  would accommodate grades 4-  12. Neither of these options  was greeted with any great support Wednesday. Parents wanted to know why the present  school could not be substantially renovaled. Others thought  the renovation idea was throwing good money after bad.  Some parents want a new  school built on the same site.  Others opted for a school in  Garden Bay. There was limited  support for the grad school  idea, but those in favour  thought if the school was affiliated with Cap College and  offered greater programming,  then it should be an elective to  attending PHSS.  "The school board has to  make a decision by the end of  March," said superintendent  Clifford Smith.  "You should spend Ihe time  you need and make sure that  the board hears you. We have a  big picture problem with the  APRA report. The conceptualization is not sound economics.

Joel Johnstone photo  Parents group  calls for tougher  video controls  by Jane Seyd  ll was, perhaps, an all-too-  typical evening's entertainment.  A group of young teenage  boys had rented a video by  themselves and sat watching a  depiction of a woman getting  her clothes torn off before she  was decapitated with       a machete.  That incident -  which later came to  the attention of a parent - and others like  it, have prompted  action by a Sunshine  Coast group concerned about increasing levels of violence  in the media.  Violent videos are  one form of entertainment loo  easily available to children, say  members of the group.  And in an open letter to local  video outlets, People Against  Violence in Entertainment  (PAVE) is urging retailers to be  more responsible by not renting  restricted videos to minors without parental permission.  "These video stores are renting out videos that children  shouldn't be watching," says  Martin Flynn, a member of the  group which formed several  months ago. "There are laws  governing what they're allowed  to rent."  In fact, while there are laws  under the Motion Picture Act  which state what minors may  watch in movie theatres, rental  of restricted videos is not regulated by the BC film classification office. Only videos deemed  to be "adult" - containing  "explicit sex to extreme violence" are legally prohibited to  minors.  Partly the decision not to  regulate videos was a practical  decision made because of the  sheer volume of material. Part-  'Stores are  renting out  videos that  children  shouldn't be  watching'  -Martin Flynn  ly, it was also a political decision which deemed the ultimate  responsibility to lie with parents  in determining what is watched  in the home.  Most video stores on the  Coast have a stated policy of  not renting restricted videos to       children without a  parent's approval.  But   diligence  ahout checking for  adult  permission  varies       widely  between outlets, say  members of PAVE.  Part of the problem, say members,  is that a restricted  classification  allows for such a  broad range of subject matter,  people - including some parents  - don't lake il seriously.  In some cases, store clerks  assume when children have  their parent's video cards,  they're allowed lo renl anything, says Flynn. But "just  because I send my child to the  video store, it doesn't mean  they can rent any video they  come across."  In other instances, outlets  have a line which must be  signed as part of a video rental  agreement saying the store is  not responsible for material  rented to minors.  But members of the group  say they don't accept that.  While acknowledging it's  hard to control, "with rising violence in the schools it's time we  attempt to do something," says  Flynn.  Members of the group say  repeated exposure lo violent  entertainment has the effect of  reinforcing violence as an  acceptable lifestyle.  Says Flynn, "People have a  tendency to mimic."  turn to page 3  Local survey lists highs, lows of fishing industry  mgs.  turn to page 19  by Jane Seyd  Commercial fishermen on the Sunshine Coast make  up a substantial pari of the area's industry, and contribute  an estimated $25 million to the local economy, according  to a recently completed economic development study.  But according to Ihe same study, fishermen feel that's  all under threat because of uncertainly over the government's aboriginal fisheries strategy.  Of the 100 fishermen (oul of a possible 164) who  responded lo the survey, all said they are worried about  possible impacts of native fishing agreements and 53 per  cent said they would oppose special agreements even if  fishermen were included in negotiations.  For the most part, fishermen are afraid fish stocks will  suffer under a lack of Fisheries enforcement of Ihe new  agreements and lead to a reduction of fishing quotas.  Many fishermen are afraid such changes will mean  their way of life will soon no longer be available to their  children.  According lo the survey, that way of life currently  includes a collective gross revenue of $13 million to the  fishing industry on the Sunshine Coasl.  Average gross annual revenue per vessel is about  $82,000 while local fishermen have each invested a total  of between $50,000 and $1 million in their boats,  licences and equipment.  Among issues fishermen feel are affecting their livelihoods are fisheries management, fish stocks and prices,  as well as native fishing agreements.  turn to page 2  Coast doctors feeling ill-effects of Shaughnessy closure  by Darah Hansen  If a door shuts in Vancouver, can you  feel that change across Ihe water?  That's a question that has recently  moved from the realms of the philosophical into the academic with the announcement that Shaughnessy Hospital will  close.  And the answer is unequivocally yes,  according to Sunshine Coast doctors.  Dr. Jim Petzold, a Gibsons physician  for the past 12 years, explained the doctors' position.  Because of the size of the Coast community, Petzold said, physicians and  patients have had to depend on many services offered by the city hospitals.  "A lot of the services that we currently  utilize in Vancouver are not just beds,"  Petzold said, "but equipment, diagnostic  tests and specialists. None of these things  are provided for in our small hospitals.  "You can't be a neurosurgeon and  work in Sechelt because there isn't  enough population to warrant having a  neurosurgeon here," Petzold said. "And  you can't take a Catscan in St Mary's  hospital, again because there isn't the  patient population to justify it, but our  patients still need Catscans periodically."  He added, "all of a sudden we're less  one hospital that provided those facilities  and those specialists to us."  Petzold said that at any given time,  there have been two or three residents  from the Coast in Shaughnessy receiving  some kind of treatment either investigations or specialized care.  Now they will have to be dispersed lo  the remaining city hospitals, added to  their growing waiting lists, he said.  The closure of Shaughnessy represents  a move on the government's behalf to try  to control the spiralling costs of BC medicare. The older hospital was considered  antiquated and in need of expensive  restoration to bring it up to modern standards.  Health minister Elizabeth Cull  announced in February that Shaugh-  nessy's services and programs will be  redistributed to other hospitals in the  Lower Mainland and the Fraser Valley.  With an increasing number of Fraser  Valley residents travelling to Vancouver  hospitals, Cull's announcement is considered part of a move to bring medicare  closer to home.  Good for the Fraser Valley residents,  said Petzold, but it doesn't help the situation on the Sunshine Coast or other small  communities.  "Now (the government) is going to  close Shaughnessy," he said, "which  means that we can't transfer any of our  patients to Shaughnessy who need those  extra things.  turn page 2  inside  corammtty page 6  pegs 14  pagt*  mbrwtm pagt 15  sports pagt 13  1$ Coast News, March 8, 1993  VINYL SIDING  VinylS Aluminum Windows ���Aluminum Railings  Vinly Sundeck Rearing' Patio Coverings  ALWEST  #7- 5522 Wharf St., Sechelt Jim Bain 8854572  VISIT OUR SHOWROOM ANYTIME  The Weekender...

PACMMtlno-March 22  Topics: Long Range Facilities Plan for School Oistrict  (How many and what level of schools lor the future).  - Long Term Goals  All parents are encouraged to attend.  ShifcMPMM Porformanco  On Wednesday, March 24, (1:15 - 3:15) at Elphinstone,  there will be a performance of "Romeo & Juliet" by the  Argyle Secondary drama club.  'Fishers want more government support'  from page 1  Fishermen are also angry at  what they say is lack of government support for their industry.  The study, which cost about  $2,000 and was paid for by the  SCRD's economic development  commission, will be used to  create a database, said economic development officer Bill  Moore, which will be helpful  for planning in case of a downturn in the fishing industry.  Calvin Craigan, a Sechelt  Indian Band councillor and  band fisheries chairman, said  commercial fishermen's fears  that native agreements will  affect them economically are  unfounded.  In terms of the band's own  economic future, Craigan said  native fishing agreements will  likely benefit band members by  employing them in fisheries  management positions. He said  the band also has a substantial  investment in fisheries through  its salmon enhancement work.  Bill Moore (centre), chairman of the SCRD's economic devlopment commission, discusses the new  fisheries report. Jane Seyd photo  Individual halibut fishery quotas increased  by Jane Seyd  A trial program of individual quotas for  halibut fishermen will be extended for the  1993 fishing season, following a two-year  pilot run.  The Department of Fisheries and Oceans  made the announcement after getting what is  said was support from the majority of halibut  license holders to continue the program.  Prior lo 1991, when the trial quota system began, halibut fishing was managed with  limited openings in much the same way as  salmon and herring roe fishing, with all 435  licensed vessels going out to fish at the same  time. Under the new system, licensed vessels  receive individual quotas which may be  caught anytime during an eight-month sea  son. Halibut co-ordinator Bruce Tunis with  the department of fisheries says there are  several advantages lo the new quota system.  A fishery which is spread out over several  months means there isn't such a glut on the  market, resulting in fishermen getting a higher price per pound for the halibut catch.  Safety is also a factor, says Tunis. Under  the old system, if the weather was bad during  a limited opening, fishermen had to made a  difficult decision about whether to go out or  not. "...If you didn't fish and another guy did  he got the fish and you didn't." The individual quota system is also used in black cod,  goeduck and herring food and bait fisheries.  This year, halibut fishermen can also  transfer their quotas among licensed vessels.  But not all fisheries lend themselves to  the system, says Tunis. Salmon and herring  roe for instance are fished with gear which  also tends to catch other species in more significant numbers, making it more difficult to  fish to a quota. They are also at a stage of  maturity lo be fished for a limited amount of  time. Halibut, however, can be fished with  long-line gear and are available in the ocean  year-round.  Plans for 1993 call for a total catch of  10.5 million pounds of halibut in B.C.  waters, an increase of 2.5 million pounds  from 1992.  In 1992 the halibut fishery was valued at  $22 million. The season runs from March 1  to October 31.  T  I he goal of the Management of  JL Bayside Sawmills Ltd. has been to  reach a realistic collective agreement with  our employees lhat will benefit them and  allow us to continue in business. We have  been candid with the Union which has  included opening our books to them so  that they would fully understand the  Company's financial position.  We now have an offer on the table for  our employees outlined in a press release  issued by the Labour Relations Board  dated March 8th. Anyone wishing to  obtain a complete copy of the release can  do so by phoning (604) 660-1300.  The Labour Relations Board news  release stated, "The offer is a significant  move' from the company's last position  and includes an increase of $2.60/hour  for lower paid employees, $ 1 35/hour for  other employees and introduces a pension  plan for all employees at a cost of  $0.50/hour over its three year term.  The offer includes the following:  Pension  Wages  First year  An increase of SI 2-t/hour for  those employees currently earning  $ 13.23/hour or less, and an increase of  $0.50/hour for those employees  currently earning S14.5-,/hour.  Second year  An increase of SO.BVhour across the  board for all employees reflecting  the industry's negotiated increase for  that year.  Thirdyear  An increase of $0.50/hour across the  board for all employees.  Over the term of the agreement the  company will initiate a pension plan  which will, for the majority of our  employees, be substantially the same or  better than the industry plan. The  company will contribute $0.2*>/hour in the  first year, an additional $0.15/hour in the  second year and a further $0.10/hour in the  third year. In the second year, the  employees will contribute $0.10/hour to  the plan in accordance with the negotiated  industry increase bringing the total hourly  pension contribution to $0.60/hour.  Employee and Family  Assistance Program  The company has agreed to bear the  total cost of implementing an Employee  and Family Assistance Program.  Apprenticeship &  Training Programs  The company proposal accepts the  concept of introducing apprenticeship  training. It also proposes a method to  mutually resolve modifications to the  existing Mill Training agreement.  The total cost impact of the company's  proposal is approximately 138% over  three years. The Labour Relations Board  press release concluded, "It is now up to  the employees of Bayside Sawmills to  decide if this offer is significant enough to  conclude a collective agreement."  The Management of Bayside Sawmills  Ltd. sincerely hopes this dispute can be  settled so that we can all return to work.  Bayside Sawmills Ltd.

'  iftWwwi;  Currently on the Coast, available medical services run in full operation consistently.  Ted Wright, St. Mary's hospital administrator,  said the hospital has been running at 95 to 100 per  cent occupancy since Christmas.  In 1991,11 of the 49 acute-care beds in the hospital were closed and the equivalent of four and a  half full-time positions cut after the hospital's budget was reduced.  Asked if 38 beds was adequate, Wright said, "A  month ago I would have said yes."  But for the last few weeks the hospital has been  full. Wright added he was not sure whether the  high numbers represented an on-going trend or if  they were just unusually high.  He did say the staff was concerned.  "Hospitals should have a cushion. They  shouldn't be geared to running at a 100 per cent  occupancy all the time...it's generally thought (by  boards and administration) 85 per cent is ideal."  That allows room to bring in more patients  should there be a rash of babies born, a multi-vehicle accident, or even a flu epidemic, Wright said.  "As it is now," he said, "When (occupancy)  goes over 85 or even to 100 per cent, we can bring  -��S ,tWf ,1���iUjIPis become stretched thinner and  this-iner and iWe no doubt we could probably be  doing some things better."  Wright confirmed a percentage of the problem  stems from patients coming to the hospital because  they have no where else to go.  "We are the last resort," he said, adding in the  past as many as 12 acute care beds have been  occupied by patients who required long-term or  extended care services.  For Ihe last two month, he said, that number has  been reduced to four.  "Still, that is len per cent of our beds," Wright.'  said. \  On the coast, there are approximately 130 beds'  designated for extended and long-term care  patients, with a further ten multi-level care beds  expected to become available shortly at Shorncliffe.  All beds presently available are full, the waiting  lists varying in length up to a year.

Coast News, March 15, 1993  news  Seasonal workers file most local claims  r$b  from page I  Meanwhile, for the claimants  who are appealing, there won't  be any money.  "Usually when you're cut  off, you get cut off right away,"  says Rae. "You're not getting  paid while you're launching an  appeal."  Since it was first brought forward in 1940 as strictly-defined  insurance measure, the unemployment insurance program has  broadened its scope in past  decades to include items like  maternity benefits and Ul for  seasonal workers.  In fad, says Rae, the majority of claims on the Sunshine  Coast now come from seasonal  workers.  Accordingly, the definition of  what "unemployed" actually  means is also more open to  interpretation.  In the case of seasonal workers, the reasoning has been that  if people couldn't get unemployment insurance in Ihe off  season, workers needed for  occupations like fishing, logging  and tree planting would not be  able to support themselves year-  round and would find other  occupations, leaving a gap in the  labour force.  "Are these people truly  unemployed? That's a question I  would ask," says Rae. "If you  Robert Rae, local manager of Employment and Immigration,  questions unemployment classifications. Jane Seyd photo  were making $50,000 a year in One way in which Ul hasn't  the season, if you didn't get any  Ul in the off-season, would you  try to find work somewhere  else?"  changed is that it doesn't take  economic hardship into account.  Whether or not someone qualifies for Ui benefits, "these deci  sions are not taken in light of  personal circumstances," says  Rae. "The law is blind to those  considerations."  For workers who find themselves in dire need while waiting  for benefits to be approved, the  Ministry of Social Services  often fills the gap, basing its  decisions on immediate need for  money as much as other considerations.  For employees in low-paying  jobs, meanwhile, access to Ul  retraining programs has become  more limited in recent years.  While in the past, agents could  actually encourage such workers  to quit their jobs in favour of  upgrading, these days it's not  allowed, says Rae, and workers  who want to improve their skills  must do it on their own time.  Increasingly, that's being felt  by women who are often in low-  paying positions and have family obligations in the evening.  Anne Miles, an organizer of a  newly formed Sunshine Coast  advocacy action group to fight  poverty and member of a local  unemployment action group,  says she's pessimistic about the  effect of the new UI changes on  workers.  "I personally feel it's the  pits," she says. "If you leave for  unfairness of any kind you have  to prove it."  �� ffiU.

The whole contest combined with national political  undercurrents spells gloom for the federal NDP, which  has enjoyed brief surges of popularity at the polls midterm, but has never been able to translate its support into  a substantial number of seats on election day. The frustrations eventually drove the earnest, capable Ed Broadbent  from party leadership. And his successor, Audrey  MacLaughlin, has been unable to rattle establishment  cages or bring about a turn in the ebbing NDP tide.  If that weren't bad enough, the party's fortunes are  sinking deeper still in pockets of the country it desperately needs to woo if it is ever going to be a serious contender for power in Ottawa. To wit, Ontario.  It is true that the NDP has had tremendous difficulty  gaining any ground at all in Quebec, a handicap which  must some day be overcome to mount a serious national  election campaign. In Ontario, that other great repository  of House of Commons seats, party support has tended to  fluctuate. But things have never looked this bad.  Two years after taking office, Bob Rae's provincial  NDP is drowning in a sea of public resentment and discontent after a series of scandals and bungles that have  left the party's reputation in tatters. As far down as the  federal Tories are in the polls, it is hard to imagine a less  popular government in the nation than Rae's Ontario  administration. Failing some sort of miracle, scorn for the  provincial party will be heaped on the nearest facsimile  come election day - the federal NDP  Raking those wounds, the salty winds blowing from  the Maritimes sting. The political profile of the eastern  provinces presents a small 'c' conservative populace  which favours a two-party system. By appearing too radical, the NDP simply scares voters away; but trying to be  mainstream, the party is shackled with the perception that  it offers little in the way of an alternative, so why bother  to lend support?  Looking to the west, the prospects look equally bleak,  even with two sitting NDP provincial governments that  have so far avoided the pitfalls that have landed Rae's  party in the soup and cast a dark shadow over the federal  party. Because for all the seats the west can amass, the  government is still elected in central Canada before the  polls even close in BC. The Reform Party has tried to  capitalize on the sense of western alienation that accompanies this fact, but its soft support is draining away.  So the election of a new government in Canada is  going to come down once more to the tired Tories, one of  the most unpopular administration's in the country's history trying to resurrect itself and look fresh under a new  leader. And the lacklustre Liberals, a shadow government  that has fulfilled that role only too well in recent years,  almost disappearing from the political map.  And even if the Liberals are able to harness the disaffection swirling around the Tory legacy of free trade,  soaring debt and the GST, where does that leave BC? The  Liberal Party's paucity of seats in the west is something  of a sad joke. And while NDP is a federal force to reckon  with this side of the Rockies, the party seems destined to  remain a minor player on the national stage.  \_%%?  "/^'THf(TlON  \ MAY Aty  Logging claim  misguided  There is nothing more muddle-headed than a claim to  virtue based on personal interest. J.R. Thomson's recent letter  (March 4) on the future of  Chapman Creek is a case in  point  To begin with its tide: "People out, loggers in" suggests that  loggers are not people. As this is  not the case, Thomson's arguments for closing the watershed  to the public and opening it only  to loggers, rapidly collapse.  The claim that the SCRD or  GVRD "can prove that carefully  planned logging and the attendant road building have no  detrimental effect on the quality  of water," is false.  Disinterested scientific work  begun in 1962 in Maine, known  as "Effect of Forest Cutting and  Herbicide Treatment on Nutrient Budget's in the Hubbard'  Brook Watershed Ecosystem"  (Ecological Monographs 40: 23-  47, 1970) and replicated in BC  by J.P. Kimmins and M.C.  Fuller in "Effect of Clearcutting  and Broadcast Slash-burning on  Nutrient Budgets, Streamwater  Chemistry and productivity in  Western Canada" (Proceedings  of tbe 16th I:UFRO World  Congress 1:186-197, 1976),  demonstrate the advene effects  of forest cutting in watersheds.  This now classic experiment  has shown that the simple cutting of trees in watersheds  destroyed nitrogen-fixing capacities, warmed and overoxy-  genated the water and led to the  radical alteration of the water's  chemical   composition   by  destroying the biogeochemical  balance. In brief, it leads in a  very short period to rendering  the water unfit for human consumption.  As this work was funded and  supported by the US Forest Service, which has always been  favourable to the interests of the  logging industry, it is worth listening to the objective conclusion of this report:  "The deforestation experiment resulted in significant pollution of the drainage stream  from the ecosystem. Since  August 1966, the nitrate concentration in stream water has  exceeded, almost continuously,  the maximum concentration recommended for drinking water.  As a result of the increased temperature, light and nutrient concentrations and in sharp contrast  to the undisturbed watersheds, a  dense bloom of algae has  appeared each year during the  summer in the stream from  Watershed 2.  "Nutrient cycling is closely  geared to all components of the  ecosystem; decomposition is  adjusted to nutrient uptake,  uptake is adjusted to decompo  sition and both influence chemical weathering. Conservation of  nutrients within the ecosystem  depends upon a functional balance within the intrasystem  cycle of the ecosystem. The  uptake of water and nutrients by  vegetation is critical to this balance."  The full argument is complex, however, there is no doubt  that logging has detrimental  effects on watersheds and water  quality. Logging alters mineral  intake both by cutting and herbi-  cidal/fertilizer controls.  Regrettably, the tolerance  levels seem to be uncertain,  given regional and planetary climatic changes, and the joint  effects of global warming and  ozone depletion. Logging as the  exploitation of resources in sensitive areas is therefore a dangerous game of Russian  roulette.  As we run out of time we  should bear in mind that loggers  and environmentalists are people with common interests in  healthy forests, good water and  jobs. Confrontations do not  serve our long-term interests.  We must all work together to  JffafMaf WBtCOMB  We welcome letters to the editor on matters of public  interest.

This is feasible if we  transcend our narrow personal  interests and avoid convenient  denial of the ecological problems we face.  As for Chapman Creek, it is  in our collective interest to minimize impact on its ecosystem.  As a pristine system it can provide a measure of the spiritual  dimension of mankind. It would  therefore be best to limit access  to day hikes by permit only, in  order to restrict human impact.  L.

ANN KERSHAW  Sechelt Chamber  of Commerce  Man and the trees, an ancient and inextricable bond  You get thinking, as you move through new  places, about the things all places have in common.  Sure, like any self-respecting tourist you are  looking for what is different. If you were not what  would be the point of going anywhere? It's a  decent curiosity, this business of wondering how  other people live and how their circumstances, successes, and trials are different from what you  know.  It is equally a decent curiosity, surely, to try to  spy common threads real and enduring beneath the  surface of circumstance. What is it we have in  common, all of us? That is an equally valid and  perhaps more important question than the question  of differences alone.  All down the west coast of North America, and  indeed as I remember from previous travelling,  well down into Mexico, you find the tension  between those who make their living cutting down  trees and those who feel that deforestation may  lead to disaster.  In BC, in Washington, in Oregon, in California,  down into the high valleys in central Mexico where  there still are significant trees, and of course in the  Amazonian rain forests of Brazil, the conflict  rages. Nor does this list exhaust the locales of the  debate, either in this hemisphere or throughout the  world.  Wherever there are trees and human beings  musings  john burnside  have a need for fuel or building, or the perceived  need to plant crops in places occupied by trees,  there is debate about the cutting of trees.  Add to tbe equation today our insatiable  demand for paper. You cannot heft a Sunday newspaper in any city in America without marvelling at  this appetite.  Clearing the forest has been a necessary and  honourable activity for much of man's history. To  clear a homesite, raise a garden, or plant a crop,  trees must come down. They provide heat and  shelter.  Britain denuded itself of great forests over a  couple of millennia for these reasons and to build  the wooden ships with which the British once ruled  the seas.  The tree cutters seem to have it going for them  on historic human terms. Apart from that, the man  with a family to feed and keep warm can't afford  to waste too much time in philosophic debate. His  little ones are cold or need food and be must do  what he can to provide.  But wait. The world is changing and changing  responses may be needed.  The endless adaptability, energy, and ingenuity  of man himself is by far the most significant  change. There are twice as many of us sharing this  globe as there were just a few short years ago. That  number will double again in half the time it took  for the last doubling.  All of the growing billions will need both food  and fuel and when tbey have those they will  demand newspapers. The prospects for the trees  look bleak indeed.  But have we not come to a fuller appreciation  of the role played by trees in this sublime happenstance of mutually interdependent life.  There is a symbiotic relationship in how our  life forms relate to the gases which make our envelope of atmosphere. We breathe out carbon dioxide  and breath in oxygen; trees take in carbon dioxide  and give off oxygen.  With the numbers of oxygen inhalers increasing  exponentially and the systematic and wholesale  destruction of oxygen creators throughout the  world, how can we persuade ourselves that some  lethal imbalance is not inevitable?  We have also learned, have we not, that trees  have much to do with soil stability and water supply. A treed hillside slows the runoff of rainwater.  Take away the trees and not only does the water  run unchecked away but takes with it the soil  cover, also needed for our survival. Before our  human onslaught the deserts of the world expand  ominously.  We who need oxygen to breathe and soil to  grow our food are in the midst of the greatest  explosion of our numbers this world has ever seen.  That which creates oxygen and preserves soil  should be sacred to us.  Bul what can we say lo the man and the woman  who have children to feed and to keep warm  today? How meaningful to ihem are these lofty  concerns about the long-term viability of life on  the planet when present dangers of cold and hunger  are much more real than what must seem hypothetical or theoretical concerns expressed by the comparatively comfortable?  Lecturing righteously will not do. That righteousness with which too many address those in  immediate need is one of the obstacles we have to  overcome. In this, and so much more, we are our  own worst enemy.  One says I must provide, the other we must  save the trees. Both are right. Reconciling that  dichotomy is the task we face.  i  COAST^NEWS  SuhKrlptku, felt, fo,  tm Coasl Nam or the Waaiaaatn  1 ywr . $35 ��� $2.45 CST - 137.45  6 months ��� $20* $1 40CST-$21.40  lye*. $40 (No CST)  Reg.

The fact that Moses Znaimer  is a name to conjure with in television in the east may not ruffle  anyone's thinking much here on  the Coast either. Znaimer is a  Toronto television tyro (TTT).  He is, I would judge, somewhat  pre-baby-boom-generation wise.  When at a relatively early age  he appeared in Toronto as a producer with the CBC he told  everyone who would listen that  it would take him less than 10  years io be president, CEO and  (almost certainly) chief owner  of Toronto's CITY-TV, but he  is into all kinds of other things.  The last I hearj of him was the  other morning on CBC radio.  John Gray, Vancouver playwright (Billy Bishop Goes to  War), who has written a good  bil of TV over these past years,  was being asked about writing  for the medium today. He quoted Znaimer readily, as a man  most natural to quote. The actual quote I didn't get down (1  hear most of this stuff as background and interesting things  almost get by before I realize  they're interesting); but from  what Gray said later, the mean  ing was perfectly clear.  Znaimer's view is that the  reason for television, its purpose  on this earth, is to produce commercials for the public, always  considered simply as 'consumers'.  So what else is new many  may think. Some of us have  thought that this is the way they  thought since the beginning of  commercial TV (because of  course, there was already public  TV in Britain). But we didn't  think that this point of view of  the audience (us) as being simply and totally consumers could  permeate the making of the program part, the part between the  commercials, the things that are  listed in the TV guides.  Znaimer's favourite word  apparently is 'flow'. By Ihis, he  means that a television program  should be considered as a  whole, the program itself and  the overt commercials embedded in it; and that in the mind of  the viewing audience, the consumer, this whole plastique  should flow in some beautiful  seamless kind of a way. This  can only be done by doctoring  the writing, and every other  aspect of the making of the programs.  Even a heresy as sick as this  one will have its aesthetic. This  flow takes a lot of skill to attain.  The writing for example, which  requires a nice limitation on the  in a nutshell  Searching for that Special  Accent Lamp?

If you wonder then why, with  all our extraordinary production  skills, our drama and Our comedy and our dialogue generally is  so mundane and repetitive, this  is the deliberate result of a lot of  hard work by top professionals  in the business. Make you feel  any better?  Another aspect is plot, or  subject matter. Given these limitations on dialogue and characterization, simple and fast moving plots will be the thing.  Something to draw the viewer  (consumer) along with a simple  nagging need to know what  actually happens to this bloody  thing, without at any point  encouraging the slightest  thought.  Sex and violence of course,  will be ideal.  Is this the way it has to be? It  was foreseen by some, in not  quite so all-encompassing a way  stuart nutter  perhaps, when America elected  for all commercial television,  instead of the way the Brits  were doing it - which was public  - with the basic costs paid by  licensing the sets, and with a  very lough hombre, Lord Reith,  riding herd.  Looking at what we have  ended up with here it would certainly seem that Mr. Znaimer  and his many co-believers and  cohorts particularly to the south,  have us in a proper stranglehold.  I am (it's been a failure of mine)  optimistic, however.  1 believe a new generation  will opt out of being treated  simply as consumers. Enough of  them will make this clear and  the whole glittery edifice will  begin to crumble. This may not  even be a financial disaster.  People will still consume and  people will still make things for  them. A few, quite a few, professionals may lose their jobs,  but the wheels of commerce are  not going to cease to turn  through any lack of Mr.  Znaimer's flow.  letters  For the birds  Where have all the birds  gone? With the exception of a  few crows, I haven't seen a single bird of any other species  around lower Gibsons for  weeks.  During the harshest part of  the winter, jays, varied thrushes,  sparrows and starlings were in  evidence.  The big Ponderosa pine outside my back door gave shelter  to a host of tiny birds.  They too have disappeared.  Do the birds know something  we don't? If someone knows the  answer, I would like to hear  about it  JOHNMAILEY  Gibsons  Time Wilson woke  up to realities  Now that the saga of Gordon  Wilson and Judi Tyabji has been  made public knowledge: "Yes,  we are in love," I would like to  take this opportunity to state a  few well known facts of reality  to the political novice, Gord.  To begin with, if he and  Tyabji would have stated from  the very beginning that they  were, in fact, romantically  involved, things would have  been a lot easier on them.  But instead they sneaked  around like love-crazed  teenagers denying everything,  telling the public that their personal life was nobody's business  but their own.  It is a well known and proven  fact that once you are elected  into public office your personal  lifestyle becomes open for public scrutiny, contrary to popular  opinion. After all, if you can't  hold a marriage together) how in  the hell are you going to hold a  political party together; they are  one and the same.  Like the turmoil of the Social  Credit Party under the leadership of Bill Vander Zalm, Gordon Wilson and Judi Tyabji condemned the media for all of their  woes saying that there were  other stories out there to be had  and to leave them (Wilson and  Tyabji) alone.  Again, it is a well known fact  that if you are in the political  arena and you lie to the public,  the media members are going to  poke and pry until the skeletons  in your closet are exposed. They  (the media) are only doing their  jobs; isn't that part and parcel of  the free-enterprise system?  The tragic soap opera of  Wilson/Tyabji has set BC politics back hundreds of years.  Here, we had a political novice  climbing the ladder of success  getting ready to grab hold of that  brass ring.  Then, all of a sudden out of  the blue, the ladder is kicked  from beneath him and the brass  ring is quickly pulled out of his  reach; all this for the love of a  girl!  It makes great television  material, but;not worth;citing  iiOVaaaSr.il..-. Iir-      'jmiTlll?.  With all of this being said,  unanswered questions,,remain:  What about the constituency  members that elected Wilson  and Tyabji into their designated  portfolios?  Some Liberals say that various members of the media are  responsible for the downfall of  Gordon Wilson and Judi Tyabji.  Wilson may call it a conspiracy  to oust him, while Tyabji simply  cries out gender harassment.  Call it whatever you like, the  fact remains the same: Gordon  Wilson and Judi Tyabji lied to  the public repeating their  orchestrated lines like a broken  record over and over again, we  are not romantically involved,  end of story.

Farther along another sign "Remove all dog  excrement. Use bags provided and put in garbage  containers." And there on a steel post in easy reach  a dispenser of free plastic bags. Only in Victoria?  In my blurting way 1 said to a little dog which  had just made a deposit beside the walkway,  "You're supposed to pick that up." A stout lady  nearby said "Yeah, yeah," and marched over to  pick up the deposit, hand encased in a plastic bag  and put the deposit in a straw shopping bag. Did  she know of the free bags, I wondered, but held my  tongue and spoke no further to the little dog.  Now wouldn't it be a civic miracle if Gibsonites  were to do the same on our streets and seawalk. No  more dodging dog deposits at the post office, or at  banks or shops. Dream on.  On the same day, we saw our MLA speaking in  his earnest, urgent manner at a parade of red-  capped fishermen and wildlife club members,  standing on the lawn in front of the legislature. No  solution agreeable to all in Ihe fish problems. (Our  MLA may be the reason the governmenl dawdles  over legislating the recall matter, despite a  favourable call for it in last year's referendum.)  What a place for public gatherings, the legislature lawn. Later that afternoon a 60-voice men's  choir from Kyota University entertained a tiny  audience.  No protest, just an occasion to sing and have a  photo taken on the legislature steps.  And not to be lefl idle for long, lhe next evening  hikers' tents went up and the Western Canada  Wilderness Committee prepared to wail for, or out-  wait the premier to see it Iheir way for parks on  Vancouver Island's west coast where the old-  growth forest remnants are situated. A premier  whom their several drums, like a relentless charivari, summoned lo parley with them.  And inside the legislature building, government  heads were already throbbing with budget  headaches. A budget thai starts with a two billion  dollar deficit; or call it 2,000 million dollars. Can  you feel the government octopus prying open the  reclusive citizen clams?  New Gibsons library proposed  The Gibsons and District  Public Library association is  proposing to build a'new library  in the range of 7,000 to 7,500  squaie feet, to be localed in the  Holland Park area. In a first step  toward this goal, requests for a  feasibility study for the new  library have been sent to local  and Lower Mainland architects.  The sludy will determine the  appropriate siting for a new  library building and include preliminary cost estimates. Building committee chairman John  Young has indicated that the  firm which will undertake the  work will be selected by the end  of March, and the study should  be completed within two  months.

The top priority of the newly  elected board is to develop and  move ahead with plans for a  bigger and more efficient library  facility.  Heading the 1993 board is  former Gibsons council member  Margaret Morrison. She  replaces Vern Giesbrecht, who  has stepped down from the  board after eight years.  Supporting her as vice-chair  and head of Ihe building committee is returning member John  Young.

According lo emergency preparedness groups on Ihe Coast,  such as PEP and COPE, in the  event of a substantial earthquake, ie 9.0 on the richler scale  their research has found the following:  ��� If ferry service is out, Ihis  vulnerable link will isolate the  Coasl.  ��� If the highway is closed, a  marine highway would be  formed.  ��� Most residents arc within a  half mile of fresh drinking  water and can survive without  electricity,  ��� Seniors who have been  through wars and the depression  arc not afraid of adversity.  ��� It would lake many days  before lhe provincial government could supply help.  ��� Elected officials would  fonn a management team.  ��� Pockets of populations thai  may be isolated would be controlled by a set up according to  fire protection districts.  COPE's iidvicc for emergency preparedness is as follows:  l-'irsl Aid - leam how lo use  fire extinguishers; keep 72  hours worth of food and water  in a lamily survival kit on hand;  keep in mind buildings and safe  areas to store equipment; organize these prepared areas by  neighbourhoods - not all concentrated in one area.

Expansion construction Is well underway at Roberts Creek Elementary.  the  R���RL ���STAT��� COR06R  by Herb Craig  REP: GIBSONS REALTY  PREDICTIONS  Parti  What's going to happen to housing prices in our market?  Personally, I think we're going to continue with our present  pattern. Why?  Many of us tend to think in terms of our local market. We  donl see our population exploding or new factories opening.  Therefore, it's hard to understand how the prices can keep  rising. Your view changes however, when you look at the  world economy and follow the investment dollars as they  move from country to country seeking stability. We think of  big city prices as unreal'. Foreign investors don't see them  that way. They see valuable property in a politically stable  marketplace with no 'wars' around to threaten their  investment. So the money pours in. From Singapore, South  Korea, Taiwan and Japan. Hundreds ot Millions ol dollars.  Some of ihis money tnckles down into our housing market.  Not a lot, but it's steady and I think It's aoino to continue.

One of  these programs, operated by the  Transition House (under the  Community Services umbrella)  is Towards Prevention. Staff  members Carol Hodgson and  Lynn Mackay talked the other  day about the program and how  il works.  "It's a teen dating abuse prevention program, conducted in  the secondary school," Hodgson  explained. "We show videos  and encourage group involvement that leads to a lot of discussion about this issue.  "We tell them that we don't  have all the answers, bul we  help promote their thinking  about incidents lhat have happened to them or to their friends  and they come up with their  own ideas and questions which  they share in the classroom setting," Mackay continued.  The program, which this year  will reach every secondary  school student on the Coast as  well as church youth groups,  teachers, peer counsellors and  olher community groups, helps  students identify abusive situations and then gives them the  power of choice over what their  alternative responses can be.  The classes are flexible in  emphasis and content lo respond  to the needs of each age group.  Some of the information that  students share is very disturbing. "There are a lot of uncomfortable situations the students  deal with around the school  yard," Hodgson said. Sexual  harassment by both boys and  haltmoon happenings  Carol Hodgson and Lynn Mackay of the Towards Prevention program.  girls, often older students, is  common, as is a belief that nothing can be done to change the  way things are."  "Part of our job," Mackay  added, "is to point out power  imbalances and to encourage  discussion about what constitutes healthy and unhealthy relationships. The students like the  opportunity to talk about this  stuff and to be listened to."  The team provides information about the early signs of teen  dating violence such as excessive jealousy and possessive-  ness, attempts to control by  being bossy, giving orders and  making all the decisions, pressures to have sex, drug and alcohol abuse.  The team also provides a list  of rights in a relationship and  sexual rights.  These range from the right to  be treated with respect, the right  to walk away from anyone who  is making you feel humiliated,  the right to have your own feelings, opinions and convictions,  through to the right to set your  own sexual limits and the right  to expect that Ihe limits and  boundaries you set will be  respected.  "We also talk about the messages TV and videos bring and  show that societal pressures can  create problems by portraying  women in negative ways. We  say that not all males are bad,  that society (through the media)  has created many of the ways in  which men view women and  Joel Johnstone pholo  that these can be changed,"  Hodgson concluded.  Through Towards Prevention, Hodgson and Mackay have  been able to observe the  changes in students who have  come through elementary  schools where conflict resolution has been taught.  "These students are very  receptive and responsive lo our  material," Mackay said. "It  shows that these kind of skills  can be taught at an early age and  that it is very effective."  The program is funded by the  Ministry of Women's Equality.

Coast News, March 15, 1993  community  Quesnel divers languish in the  waters off Davis Bay.  Joel Johnstone photo  Sechelt students learn about positive beliefs  by Darah Hansen  Listed below are the four easy steps to  making a positive impact on kids as outlined  by the Sechelt Elementary school.  First you need a large group of children,  preferably varying in age and in social and  cultural background.  Next, allow the children to identify personally what each feels are the three most  important beliefs their school should possess  in order to guard against harmful or disruptive behavior and to ensure everyone enjoys  being with each other. (The students should  be clear these are beliefs they would choose  to live by, not rules they are being forced to  live with.)  Thirdly, sort through the suggestions,  compacting like ideas until all have been categorized into five to ten action statements.  harbour watch  And finally, bring the short list back to  the students, step back and watch.  Caution: the results of this activity may  cause a pleasant surprise.  At Sechelt Elementary where such a program has been implemented, the students  have shown themselves to be committed to  some pretty weighty goals.  Among the eight common belief statements they identified, the students have chosen to work towards stopping prejudice; talking things out instead of fighting; and controlling language by not swearing, using foul  or hurtful language.  Acting principal Karen Steffensen said  since the program was organized earlier this  year, the number of negative incidents  reported from playground supervisors and  teachers has actually decreased.  "The kids are starting to internalize the  beliefs," Steffensen said, noting the change  is reflected in their attitudes and actions with  each other.  Steffensen said she feels positive about  the lasting results because the beliefs were  established by students for students. Beliefs  are more personal than rules, she said.  The beliefs also help bridge gaps between  students, Steffensen said, whether those are  caused by age, race or sex.  "It allows students to talk to each other in  a common way," she said.  Steffensen added, teachers and staff regularly reinforce these beliefs through one-on-  one discussion with the students. Students  are also given small rewards in the form of  stickers and certificates when they are seen  putting their belief statements in action.  by Jacalyn Vincent  Spring break has already begun and  here's just a few suggestions you might like  to do with your children - walking through  the numerous trails in our area, enjoy a pool  swim party with other kids and parents,  spring cleaning of toys and rooms; donate to  the needy, give them a few lessons of golf at  our local course, change the line in their fishing reels, or take your own field trip to Vancouver or Powell River.

The strategy failed to meet any of  the criteria or a single objective originally set out by the government. The  sale of food fish is opposed in all regions of the coast and is being  challenged by various fishing organizations in the courts, in the electoral  process, and in the streets, Continuation of the AFS will only lead to  increased conflict and instability.  The Fisheries Survival Coalition strongly recommends that an immediate  moratorium be placed on the signing of any future agreements and that the  policy of allowing the sale of food fish be terminated. Canadians do not  want a repeat of events on the east coast in the waters of British Columbia.  When the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans first announced the .4FS he  stated it was an experimental one year pilot project. The project has failed  and it should be cancelled. Its future implementation will have serious  negative impacts on the resource, on the commercial and sports fisheries,  on communities who depend on the fisheries for economic wealth, and  upon the Native and non-Native individuals and families who rely upon a  healthy fishery for food, mortgage payments, and a rewarding way of life.  An Alternate Solution  The "Industrial Solution"  As an alternative to the current crisis and chaos in the Commercial Fishing  industry and the native food fishery the Commercial Industry suggests that  we adopt an affirmative action program to Increase Native participation in  the commercial Industry. This program would involve a major funding  initiative to voluntarily buyout existing licence holders and vessels. This  alternative would achieve the desired economic benefit while at the same  time maintain the integrity of the Industry. This program is similar to a  proposal formulated by the Native Brotherhood of B.C. 10  Coast News, March 8, 1993  /��\  HOURS  Sunday 10-6  Mon   Thurs 9 7  Friday 9-9  Saturday 9-6  Trail Bay Mall, Sechelt 8852025  Meat 8859812 Bakery 885-9823  *      _^~\\\\\\mmm0*B-\\mmmmm\\\m\m_^*\\-\W^^_^mmn  flERITflGE MARKET  Vour fir/t cho-ce in food/  nnH  ' T/icsc arc just a few of I he  more than 350 specials  you It find in store for you.

Coast News, March 15, 1993  11,  leisure  Art outlook, options explored in school program  by Darah Hansen  Students are being offered a  chance to share in the vast artistic talents available on the Sunshine Coast, thanks lo 19 Coast  artists Who have volunteered  their time to visit nine schools  throughout Gibsons, Sechelt and  Roberts Creek.  From painters, potters, writers and musicians to sculptors, a  fabric artist and even an inventor, each artist will personally  demonstrate and discuss his/her  artwork and creativity with the  classes.  It's all a part of an arts'  awareness effort, said program  coordinator Caitlin Hicks.  She calls it a "positive  protest" in response lo the  recently announced federal  spending cuts lo the arts - cuts  thai will amount to $80 million  over two-year period.  "In our society art is not valued in the same way as money,"  said Hicks. "It's always and  extra thing ... something that is  optional.  "We're trying lo point out to  the kids that art is everywhere  you look, creativity is vital for a  healthy society, and, most  importantly, that kids can participate."  Hicks said the message  behind Ihe classroom talks is  simply to let kids know they  have an option beyond academics.  Each artist has been asked to  discuss how he or she first  became interested in art, who  offered encouragement and what  steps it took to get where each is  today.  "We are giving them role  models, as it were," Hicks said.  "We're letting them know they  have options."  Painter Greta Guzek was in  the schools Monday, Wednesday and Thursday and said the  response from the students  towards her presentation was  excellent.  Guzek brought with her a  book she is illustrating, taking  the students through the creative  process necessary to achieve Ihe  final results.  "The (students) responded so  well," Guzek said. "They asked  a lot of questions."  Guzek said going to the  schools is all a part of sharing  art with the kids.  She said it's necessary they  be exposed to and understand  Ihe language of art, particularly  at a young age.  With greater understanding  of the arts, Guzek said, comes  more participation, greater  respect and, ultimately, a more  balanced person who is better  able to express his/her intangible, abstract thoughts.  She added: "By going to the  schools we're letting them know  there are real living artists out  there who have jobs just like any  others.  Eliya Waxman performs at  Roberts Creek Elementary.

She likes to watch TV, she  likes trolls, she plays with her  sisters, she goes to school, and  she loves to draw.  If fact, she's so good at  drawing she won an award for  her skills - the Sunshine Coast  Young Artist Award - when  she was only six years old.  She clinched the prize in the  12 and under category with a  piece depicting three naked  pregnant women standing in a  row, each wilh a cut-away view  of their unborn babies, curled  up, complete with umbilical  cords and ribbons on their tiny  heads.  That was two years ago and  Sandra is slill drawing. She's  into pottery now too, and playing with the computer and  painting and working with  clay.  Sandra says she does some  form of art almost daily. Mostly  she works in a little journal,  drawing whatever comes to  mind.  Her work shows an endless  variety of creativity and colour  from martians, mother nature  and wizards to swirling designs,  violin people and dancing hippos. She's even experimented  drawing with her left hand and  with her feet.  "I was trying to see what I  could do," she says, dismissing  the squiggly results as "silly".  She uses a variety of mediums - crayons, paints, markers,  pen and pencil - sometimes  together, sometimes not,  depending on her mood.  In all of her work, Ihere is a  story lo tell and to some she's  recently started to include  words with the pictures. Some  of the stories are happy, some  of them sad.  To a simple, clean sketch of  a mother holding a child, Sandra explains she was feeling sad  herself lhat day and needed  comfort. Drawing that picture  made her feel belter, she says.  Some of her images are less  tangible, like the one depicting  a body with arms emerging  from the neck, a head al the  waist and legs where Ihey could  only be in someone's imagination.  Looking at the work, Sandra  smiles. "I wonder where I got  that one from. I know I got it  from somewhere," she says.  Her parents are obviously  proud of Iheir daughter's talent.  "Sandra has been drawing  since she could pick up a pen,"  says her father, Brian McAn-  drew. "It's something that's  natural in her."  Both Brian and Sandra's  mother, Sonja, express strong  feelings about encouraging |  Iheir daughter's interests which  .-f"    :  ���nunMHBBi  ���a 3 "*��**���.�� af3  t1?'

Rather than argue  this point, celebrate Spring by  dropping into the Arts Centre  March 27 and witness the hilarious talents of John Taylor.  Taylor's one-man show, "My  Three Dads" is minimalist theatre at its best.  Using his superb storytelling  talents, Taylor narrates a tale of  self-discovery that begins in St.  John's and ends in Houston,  Texas. In this semi-autobiographical story, Taylor discovers in a grade 9 biology class  lhat two blue-eyed parents can  not have a brown-eyed child,  and sets off to find his real  father.  On the way, he meets a medley of characters from a racist  pages from a IHelog  border guard to jeep-driving  psychopaths and finally his  reluctant father, an Iranian plastic surgeon.  Taylor's script is fast-paced,  funny and touching. It is full of  bizarre incidents that can only  happen when you are young and  broke.  His characters, which he performs with deadly accuracy, are  outlandish and endearing. The  director, well known actor and  director Andy Jones (of  CODCO fame), has an incredible sense of whal is funny and  keeps the production witty and  fast-paced.  Taylor appears in "My Three  Dads" for one performance only  al 8 pm. Tickets are limited and  available at Talewind, Coasl  Books, Sayward Books, Roberts  Creek General Store and at the  Arts Centre. Call 885-5412 for  further information.

The Belugas require more  attention than most of the other  inhabitants. The water of all the  pocket oceans is changed every  90 minutes but theirs is never  allowed to rise above the freezing point. The perpetually smiling schmoo-like Arctic whales  cannot survive long in higher  temperatures.  Any aquarium is heavily  dependent on a reliable water  supply and the facility's designers have even taken precautions  against natural disasters. Below  Ihe conference room and the  bottom floors of the complex lie  several huge reservoir tanks  containing several million gallons that can be tapped in the  event of an emergency.

In this work he tells  the lale of an incident from four  different perspectives. As the  stories unfold we see how each  member of the group has a different take on what look place.  Kurosawa explores how illusion versus reality in this  intensely beautiful, impressionist, rendering of a timeless  theme. This film won several  awards on the western market  when it was introduced in 1951.  The acting of its star Toshiro  Mifune gained him an international career. Rashomon will be  shown at the Arts Centre on  Wednesday, March 17 at 8 pm,  admittance is $5.50 at the door.  l  Lv��  :1  Free Help with Your Tax Return  Revenue Canada is opening iree tax clinics in your  area to help you at income tax time.

This hockey tournament is  going to be a real challenge for  the Sunshine Coast Blues, but  the players still seem to be optimistic: "Our chances are all  right if the team plays as it  should," says Rob Knowles, the  regular goalie. Knowles won't  be playing because of recent  knee surgery.  The Blues did not qualify for  the provincials Ihis year, but are  attending because they are hosting.  "I look at it as a challenge  for us Id do our best," says Chris  Hahn. "liven though we didn't  qualify, it'll be a good experience."  Hahn is the replacement  goalie, laking over for Knowles  while he is recovering. The  leam, which has a roster of 16  players, practices several times  a week, each practice two hours  long.

Mike and Pay McCarthy in Sechelt  March 3: Tom and Geny Cross  March 4: Joy Wilson and Fay McCarthy  Bidding Messages:  A bid can carry one of three messages: I) it  may be a sign-off bid, 2) an invitational bid, or 3)  a forcing bid (partner is expected to bid again). An  opening bid at one level is invitational.  Partner's response is a forcing bid as respon-  der's strength is unlimited (6-16 HCP). Opener  continues lo describe Ihe hand with only a jump  shift in a new suil as a forcing bid. And responder  decides lhe level of contract and its denomination.  There are so many bidding sequences' that a  partnership cannot discuss them all. That's' ty'fiy' it  is important to have a general understanding of the  bidding messages.  Hands with 22 or more points are opened at two  level and that is forcing for partner to respond  even when holding zero points (by making an  agreed-upon artificial bid).  Opening bids of 2NT or 3NT are invitational  with a specific agreed-upon point range. Opening  bids at three or higher level are invitational giving  a specific description of a hand.  When the opponents bid first, there are two  competitive bids your side can make: 1) an over-  call is an invitational bid, 2) a double is a forcing  bid - partner must respond even with zero points  (by bidding the longest suit).  ,  fl                    m  March 13-20  1  giy*  Sm  Skookumchuck Rapids  Nelson Island  Bull Passage  to malta) bookings  or  lor achaatulaa tntormaUon  v!  883-9907  V  THIS WEEK AT  TRAIL BAY MALL  SECHELT  THURSDAY, FRDAY, SATURDAY  MARCH  18, 19 A 20  iZrT**'**  SPECIAL  % PRICES  mL BAY SPORTS  Trod Avs ��� Cowris St., SscMt ��� II5-MIJ  Itonday to Saturday 9iM - MO,  -������   r. 9:30-9:00  LowraiKt Fndtn  Horizon Dinghies  HighLiner Trailers  Mustang Life Vests  Rods, Reels, & Fishing Accessories  ARRIVALS  FROM AROUND  THE WORLD  I  Clothes  S     Potteiy  __Z       Open Monday -Saturday 10 -5 PM  ��� ���       5729 Cowrie St., Sechelt ��� 885-15460  TAFFY'S  Family Clothing  & Toy Centre  10% OFF FOR ALL SFNIOHS  Msdeira Park Centre  OeU'rTfevWf'i.

Your  community  newspaper  In one year, 68,806 Canadian  households have used the First  Home Loan Insurance program  to purchase their first house,  with a downpayment as low as  five per cent, Elmer MacKay  minister responsible for Canada  Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) announced recently.  As of January 31, 1993,  $6.33 billion of loans have been  insured by CMHC under this  program since its launch last  February. This represents 33 per  cent of CMHC's total homeowner insured loans in this period.  "The response has been overwhelming," said MacKay in a  press release.

They  are mostly young couples who  lacked sufficient downpayment  to buy a home but who could  carry a mortgage.  The housing debt load of  home buyers under the insurance plan is 24 per cent and is  virtually the same as for other  CMHC clients who pay higher  downpayments.  The average house price  under the program is $97,300 as  ofJanuaiy31,1993.  The low debt service ratio  and reasonable house prices  indicate first time home buyers  are indeed realistic about the  level of housing they can afford  and the mortgage they can cany.

The SCRD has agreed to  bring charges against Wood  Bay Salmon Farm after continuing complaints by residents in  the area.  Under Bylaw 264 Wood Bay  is not allowed to process fish  that have not been on their farm  for a minimum of 90 days.  lOYEiVRSAGO  Offering a forthright assessment of the financial position of  the Canadian Forest Products  pulp operation at Port Mellon,  mill manager Harry Cargo and  technical superintendent Don  Stuart sought regional board  support last week, for the mill's  request for a ministerial vari-  i ance order for pollution control  st^i^K^^nf^V  Having spent $21 million  since 1977 on pollution control,  the mill is asking for a two year  delay in implementing two further pollution control projects,  one a vent stack scrubber and  the other, a recovery particulate  control.  15 YEARS AGO  Police in Gibsons request  that the public take the time to  lock their vehicles.  In the past week two cars  were reported stolen. This  brings the total for this year up  to twelve.  20 YEARS AGO  Open warfare has been  declared on roaming dogs that  hunt and kill deer.  An advertisement to this  effect appears on an inside page  in which the director of the fish  and wildlife branch of the  Department of Recreation and  Conservation lays down the rule  that any dog found running at  large and harassing deer will be  destroyed.  25 YEARS AGO  A letter from a cable TV  organization seeking a permit to  explore the area to see what  commercial aspect it had for it  drew the question from Sechelt  councillor Morgan Thompson  as to why it did not come before  council.  The clerk assured Ihe councillor that the mailer was being  held in abeyance until Gibsons  Council received legal advice  on the matter.  30 YEARS AGO  Building permits valued at  $51,000 were issued at Tuesday  night's meeting of Gibsons village council covering four new  homes for Gibsons.  One was for $16,000; two  for $12,000; and another for  $11,000.  35 YEARS AGO  The heavy snowfall on the  hills last week piovided needed  covering for the fast deteriorating ski slope.  However, it also covered the  road to a low level and made it  necessary for club enthusiasts to  ski four miles from the cars to  the club cabin.  40 YEARS AGO  The Elphinstone Cougars,  the school's senior basketball  team, have high hopes of bringing some glory to the team and  school this weekend when they  play a four team round robin  series to try to gain entry into  the BC High School Tournament at UBC.  45 YEARS AGO  Residents of Sechelt, Selma  Park and Davis Bay thoroughly  discussed the proposed plan to  incorporate Sechelt at a mass  meeting at the legion hall last  Friday night.

We are the top district in terms  of growth.  "My advice to the board is  immediate and pragmatic. They  should spend as much money as  they can get their hands on. Buy  the best property, build the best  places and anticipate the highest  number of children," continued  Smith.  Said treasurer Tim Anderson: "We must submit a communily wide plan. Even if the  funding is approved Ihis fall,  building won't start until 1995."  The board will hold a series  of zonal meetings in May to  present the facilities plan they  have decided on, which must  then be presented to Victoria in  June. The PAC is planning to  hold a further meeting to finalize submissions to the board  March 25.

OASTAL  886-2700  Working to screen anti-poverty message skits  by Roxanne Gregory  A small group of anti-poverty activists  and would-be thespians recently met at the  Kinsmen's Hall in Gibsons to work out the  logistics of presenting an hour of TV  vignettes and social commentary, designed  to raise awareness about poverty issues on  the Sunshine Coast.  Vancouver's End Legislated Poverty  organizer Pam Fleming helped the group  work on scripting, scenes, characterization,  props coordination and content.  "Theatre is about losing your sense of  control, your identity . . . getting over your  shyness and becoming the character you portray, if only for a few moments," said Fleming. "It's an important cultural tool to reach  people with public education. We're taking  poor people who may be unable to verbalize  their oppression, and giving them a voice  challenging classicism."  Discussions of content ranged from the  humiliation people feel in having to go to the  food bank, to the personal rejection a man  undergoes as he tries to find work.  "EI.P and other poverty action groups  want the government to create the political  will to end the need for food banks," Fleming said.  Two other vignette scripts are being  developed around problems focusing on  child poverty and dilemmas encountered in  shopping at a thrift store. "It's important to  use humour," said Fleming, "... even though  these issues are not funny. You can use comedy to get your point across."  The Sunshine Coast Unemployed Action  Centre's Vignettes production is scheduled  for filming in late April.  ONE?

Adriane Carr, one of the co-  founders of the Western Canada  Wilderness Committee, says a  recently released study by SFU  graduate Brian White showed  that tourism, not logging, is the  economic engine of the future  for Clayoquot Sound on Vancouver Island.  Carr, a Gibsons' resident,  said similar results might be  reached in many of the south  coast's forest regions and added  she would like to see the same  study done here to determine if  long-term tourism revenues  would outweigh those of  forestry.  Said Carr. "The SCRD  should get involved and commission such a study. With a  heightened public awareness  about places such as the Caren  Range and the Tetrahedron, I  think it's in the public interest to  find out exactly what's going on  in our forests. If it could be  determined that tourism on the  Sunshine Coast is enhanced by  wilderness values then that  information should be made  available before those values are  lost forever."  For the last two summers,  Friends of Caren have conducted tours of the old-growth forest  on the Caren Range and the  attendance has steadily  increased. Last summer more  than 600 people made the trip  up the fog-enshrouded slopes.  The Clayoquot study was  conducted two years ago by  Lavolin Corp,, of Montreal, but  the findings were suppressed  from publication until Brian  White left bis position there.  The findings of the study  showed that tourism is adversely affected by the visual consequences of logging and that the  long-term economic benefits of  tourism in the area far outweigh  the projected profits of logging.  Bill Moore, SCRD economic  development officer, said it  would be "wonderful and very  interesting if such a study could  be carried out here." Moore  cited a "world-wide phenomenon called eco-tourisnrt" as  being the driving force behind a  new wave in conservation and  environmental awareness.

To  these tourists, money is usually  no object.  Moore believes the Coast  would be well advised to cash in  on its unique features, such as  its ancient forests, alpine terrain  and wildlife, especially in light  of the recent 24 per cent cut in  the area's annual allowable cut.  Moore stressed, however,  "that it is still a multi-stakeholder issue and forestry will be a  big part of this community for a  long time.  "It's a question of evaluating  some of the other economic values associated with the forests,  and that includes things like  environmental tourism, mushroom and salal picking and high  value plantations like yew  wood. It basically encompasses  the whole area of value-added  resource use."  Anything that helps generate  revenue and new employment  here is welcome," Moore added.  As to whether the SCRD  would fund such tourism study,  Moore said: "If the wilderness  committee put forward a properly and well- considered proposal  we would certainly look at it."  Victoria  Here today. Gone in April. Jm  test  ms  by Keith Thirkell  Representatives of the Tetrahedron Alliance and the Friends  of Caren will join what is being  billed as the largest environmental protest in Victoria's history, this Thursday (March 18).  Scheduled for the day the  legislature reconvenes, the  protest is being organized to  pressure the government to  include Clayoquot Sound on the  west coast of Vancouver Island  in the Commission on  Resources and Environment  (CORE) negotiations. "It is the  largest remaining area of temperate rainforest in the world,"  says Gibsons' resident Paul  George, founder of the Western  Canada Wilderness Committee.  George said response to the  protest has been overwhelming  and people from all over the  south coast are committed to  attending.  George 10 days ago pitched  tents on the legislature lawns in  a bid to meet with Premier  Mike Harcourt over the issue.  Three days after the camp out  began, the premier's office  agreed to a meeting scheduled  for tomorrow (March 16).  The premier is expected to  make announce plans for Clayoquot Sound at a press conference after the meeting.  a mmt. aaa.ati'.asaa, - ?.,*&��&_���
