V8V 1X4  88.8  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast        25'per copy on news stands       February 22,1988      Volume 42      Issue 8  J   On tour of Coast  NDP researches  fish-farming  Ken Collins  NDP fact finding team investigating aquaculture consults with the  Sechelt Indian Band as well as the SCRD Foreshore Advisory Task  Force (upper right insert) and individuals directly involved in the industry (lower left insert). Left to right, MLA Larry Gnu, NDP  Communications Officer Gloria Williams, Chief Tom Paul, NDP  Environmental Spokesperson MLA Joan Smallwood, and Band  Councillors Ben Pierre and Warren Paull (see story).  ���Ken Collins photo  Information the given reason  Koch calls public meeting  by Ken Collins  Mayor Bud Koch of Sechell  continues Id oppose Ihe gravel  extraction venture of the Sechelt  Indian Band and Sechelt Aggregates Ud.  Mayor Koch, with the full  support Of Sechell Council, will  hosl a public information  meeling al Sechell Seniors Hall  on February 28 al I pm.  "We will be having another  meeling again al 2:30 for Ihe  overflow," said Koch in a Coasl  News interview,  "Whal if Ihere are slill people  who haven't heard your presen-  lalion?" asked ihe Coasl News.  "Then we will continue until  everyone's had a chance lo  hear," said Koch. "The  strength of opposition will be  indicated by the number of people lhai attend."  Koch's concern is iwo fold.  He is concerned lhal the public  does nol have adequate information on whal ihe plans are  for gravel extraction and lie is  concerned lhal ihe mandatory  governmenl legal notice thai ran  in Ihe Coast News lasl week is  so small lhal il will pass  undetected.  The notice in question is Ihe  standard one in legal classified  lhal states intent and requires  any opposing views lo be  presented within 30 days.  In spile of his strong opposition to the proposed developmeni, Koch steadfastly refuses  to release lo Ihe media a docii-  menl from Ihe provincial  governmenl which is in his  possession and which outlines  ihe exact terms of the project.  "I asked Victoria and they  told me it would be a bit  premature lo release it," said  Koch. The document has  stamped on il 'Confidential internal use only'.  Koch claimed al last week's  council meeling that the conveyor bell will pass a liltle over  200 meters from ihe hospilal,  approximately the same  distance his original canal site  would be. The document confirms this.  Bul the document also spells  oul olher details thai Ihe Sechell  Indian Band have been saying  all along.  "The site will be developed lo  have minimum environmental  impact," it stales. "A reclamation program will be carried out  concurrently with mining operations, with the objective of  returning the disturbed land  back lo an environmentally  stable state."  The document even spells oul  Ihe specific seed mixlure, fertilizer type, and rate of applicalion for ihe regrowing of grass  and indigenous trees when the  gravel is removed. "Kcnlucky  Bluegrass (45 percent), Creeping  Red Fescue (45 percent), Red-  lop (5 percent), While Dutch  Clover-inoculated wilh  Nitracoal (5 percent) Alder and  Lodgcpole Pine."  Water is to be purchased  from ihe Regional Dislricl. The  maximum volume is lo be 1  million gallons per day. " 90  percenl of system waler requirements lo be recycled, tailing ponds contained on property with zero posilive discharge  beyond property boundaries."  There will be two aspects to  the project: there will be Ihe  plant which will process the  gravel and there will be the ac  tual mining of Ihe gravel. The  mining is lo take place no closer  than 1 kilometer cast of Sechell.  Requirements for a reclamation  program are the same in bolh  cases.  As well as Sechell Mayor Bud  Koch, both the Regional  Dislricl and the Sechell Indian  Band were given copies of Ihe  Notice of Work and Reclamation Programs for the Iwo siles.  NDP MLAs Joan Smallwood  and Larry Gnu conducted an  extensive fact finding tour of  the aquaculture industry last  Monday that took ihem  through both extremes of the  polarized argument lor and  againsl aquactillure. Smallwood  is environmental spokesperson  for   Ihe   provincial    New  Democrats.  The two arrived in Sechell al  9 am by airplane and started ihe  day off with a meeling wilh  Gordon Wilson and Ihe SCRD  Foreshore Advisory Task  Force.  Wilson gave much of the  credit lo Mac Richardson,  organizer of ORCA. for mounting an opposition againsl  aquaculture. Richardson  became involved in ihe anli-  aquaculture movement when a  fishfarm moved in next door lo  his scenic walerfronl home.  "He has gol people from  Alaska lo Washington," said  Wilson speaking of  Richardson's campaign. "I  have a certain amount of sympathy for him."  "The money we are pulling  inlo fish farming is like whal we  put inlo agriculture in Ihe I920's  10 I95()'s," said Wilson as he  compared ihe developmeni of  fish farms io a gold rush. "We  are doing things in a classic  Canadian way: please come  rape and pillage and lhank you  al Ihe end!"  Bul ihe money is nol in ihe  raising of the fish said Wilson,  who leaches geography al  Capilano College and practices  pig farming as a hobby. In  paralleling Ihe iwo forms of  animal husbandry he said, "The  money is in feed and haleheries,  if you can sell ihose fingcrhngs  you can make a lol of money."  He also described lish farms  as if ihey were modern day  workhouses. "Ihey are paving  low wages lo young kids working 14 hours a day. I hey are nol  adequately protected. I know  one woman undei treatment for  ingestion of testosterone  through ihe skin. It's a completely unregulated industry."  Foreign control is another  concern of Wilson's. "Six months ago. of ihe farms within ihe  SCRD, fit) percenl were locally  controlled," he said, "today  only 15 percenl are nol com rolled from overseas."  According lo Wilson Ihe  foreshore is being viewed as a  privatized entity ilia: can be  speculated on and Hipped and  ihere is also some funny  business going on in Victoria  regarding licence applications.  "There is no doubt in my  mind ihere has been interference from minisler and  deputy minisler in applicalion  of licences," Wilson slated.  "From an environmental  poinl of view we are absolutely  frustrated," he said pointing  out lhal ihe only studies being  done by ihe ministry were site-  specific.  "If I can pm on my professional geographer's hat I Ihink  lhal is a crock of bull," was  Wilson's reply. He said ihey  were talking aboul different  species and different ecosystems.  To start investigating ihe  other side of the story Ihe NDP  fact finding learn firsl visited  Domal Marine Systems Inc., a  Canada wide company who  manufactures aluminum wharfs  Please turn to page 22  EDC budget cuts  Community funding slashed  hy Penny Fuller  Maurice Egan, Chairman of  Ihe Economic Developmeni  Commission (EDC) told the  monthly meeting lasl Tuesday  thai Ihe Gibsons and Sechell  Chambers of Commerce are doing a "greal job" al iheir tourist  information centres, however  new budget constraints are going io make il impossible for the  EDC to fund ihem ihis year.  The meeling had been arranged  lo bring every group on Ihe  Sunshine Coasl involved in  some aspect of economic  developmeni together, lo compare notes and outline iheir  plans for 1988.  However, many of the  groups represented there have  depended on ihe EDC for some  portion of Iheir funding. The  Arts Council received money  from the commission in 1987 lo  fund an Arts Coordinator position. Carole Rubin, who has  been doing Ihe job, reported  some of her accomplishments to  the meeling which include Ihe  production of a promotional  brochure of arls and crafts  events. This brochure will be  available al travel shows  throughout die Pacific Nor-  I Invest.  Other groups who have  depended on Ihe commission  were also represented: the  forestry advisory committee,  who are responsible for Ihe  ground work that has been done  to establish a forest products industrial park; Gibsons and  Sechell Chambers of Commerce; Ihe Small Business Cenlre at Capilano College, and  Travel Sunshine Coasl, which  promotes ihis area for the  tourist industry.  During a presentation by Syd  Heal of the Aquaculture  Association, Egan suggested  lhal the EDC may become more  involved in trying to address the  needs of thai industry and help  to resolve conflicts between  fishfarmers and other residents  of Area A. "We might want to  look al something like Ihe  Forest Products Industrial Park  in Area F for the aquaculture  industry in Area A" lie said.  Rob Buchan, who is Ihe planner for bolh Sechelt Municipal  Dislrict and the Town of Gib  sons, was there lo represent the  Sechell and Gibsons Economic  Developmeni Committees, He  told the meeling aboul the sludy  being done lo evaluate the  feasibility of restructuring Gibsons boundaries. The Sechell  Committee, he explained, has  only recently been appointed  and has nol yel brought forth  any recommendations.  Members of the audience  questioned Buchan aboul Ihe  committee's recommendations  to the two councils regarding  participation in the EDC.  Buchan acknowledged that he  understood lhat the Sechell  Economic Development Committee had agreed lo recommend that the municipal district  remain in the commission, bul  thai had never been formally  broughl lo council. The Gibsons committee, he said, had  made a similar recommendation  formally to council.  Regional Board represen-  lative, Jim Gurney, explained to  the meeling that with the reduced finances available to the  EDC, the budget would need to  be cut back.  Freedom ahead! Con elk bursts out into her new home in Pender Harbour (see story helow).  Released in Pender Harbour  -Myrtle Wlncheiler pholo  Six more elk arrive  hy Myrtle Winchester  Six elk (Wapiti) captured on  Vancouver Island were successfully released just soulh of  Ihe Hydro sub station between  Madeira Park and Earls Cove al  4:30 pm on Friday afternoon.  The elk were al firsl reluctant  to leave the security of Ihe  cattle-truck box they arrived in,  but after a bit of prodding they  burst out of il and thundered up  a cleared sidehill to pause and  graze before wandering inlo  denser forest.  More than 100 people from  Gibsons lo Porl Mellon witnessed the event, supervised by Conversation Officer Jamie Stephen  and funded by Western Pulp of  Porl Mellon.  Said Stephen, "Twenty years  from now, when ihe herd is  established, kids lhat were here  today will be able io say ihey  saw it all begin."  Six cows and one bull were  captured in a corral-type trap  baited with fresh alfalfa and rigged with a trip wire to drop the  gate, but one cow escaped during the transfer from Ihe corral  lo the truck.  The trap has been re-set in  hope of capturing some of the  remaining 12 thai are  devastating a farmer's pasture  near Campbell River.  These elk were trapped on the  anniversary (February 18) of  last year's transfer of seven elk  to Ihe same area, funded by the  Habitat Conservation Fund. Of  lasl year's group, one died bul  two newborn calves were  sighted.  A bull elk can weigh over  1000 pounds and have an antler  beam up to five feel long with  six lines, bul is capable of moving through the forest quickly  and quietly, Elk prefer to graze  but feed primarily on woody  vegetation because grasses arc  usually scarce in their habitat.  Jamie Stephen commented  thai the abundant and ideal  grazing material available for  Ihe newly-released elk 'couldn't  have been beller if we had  broughl il in for them.'  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945 coast rtews, t-eDruary 22, 1988  Comment  Community groups  take the brunt  The loss of grant money for economic development attendant upon the withdrawal of the municipalities from  regional economic development hit home last week for  many community groups.  The loss of the money meant cuts in the EDC budget  and hardest hit was perhaps the chambers of commerce in  Sechell and Gibsons. The iwo chambers were running ihe  tourist inlormalion centres on a fee for service basis based  on numbers of inquiries handled. In 1987, Gibsons received $7500 and Sechell $6000.  The sadness is lhal everyone agreed that the centres were  doing a greal job. Il may be thai Sechell can afford to  replace the losi money for Iheir chamber bul il is certain  that the Town of Gibsons will nol be able lo come up wilh  ihe money lost.  Il is nol our ediiorial custom to make comment on the  opinions offered by the Coast's other journal bul under  the circumstances the column offered lasl week by ediior  Al Price titt a new level of absurdity. He extolled ihe vir-  tties of promoting tourism in ihe same piece in which he  welcomed ihe departure of Ihe municipalities from the  EDC. Ii did nol occur lo Mr. Price that the promotion of  tourism was jusi dealt a body blow by ihe said departure,  He claimed thai ihe two councils were jusi itching lo ho  il on their own while in fad both councils capitulated to  ihe autocracy of their mayors and ihose individuals have  been pandered io and flattered by Al Price and his sidekick  into this destructive action.  The chambers of commerce were in favour of the  municipalities staying in; the economic strategy groups of  bolh municipalities were in favour of slaying in; half of  Sechelt's elected representatives were in favour of staying  in: and all of Gibsons exccpl Ihe mayor voted unanimously  lo slay in.  Mayors Koch and Slrom have had their way and Ihe effects of Iheir actions are now being fell throughout Ihe  community,  Lei the community groups who have jusi seen their  budgets disappear be clear where Ihe responsibility lies. Let  them demand of Koch and Slrom how Ihey intend to make  up for ihe loss of sorely needed revenue.  A gallant figure  The gallant and cheerful figure of Bob Finlayson has  gone from Gower Point Road and from Ihe landing area  of Gibsons. We run on page 4 a tribute to him.  Lei il be said lhal lo make such an impression on someone he had jusi mel al Ihe age of 92 is ihe mark of ihe  man's unfailing vitality and good humour. His is a figure  which will be missed.  5 YEARS AGO  Gibsons Centennial project, a Community Recreation  Centre, is well underway with architectural and  engineering drawings presented.  Regional Director Jim Gurney writes to Gibsons  Council objecting to 'piecemeal boundary expansion'.  Federal Conservatives are outraged by the bending of  conduct guidelines by Liberal cabinet ministers.  A Food Bank is set up on the Sunshine Coast.  10 YEARS AGO  Citizens of Pender Harbour mourned the death of  long-lime resident John Daly. Mr. Daly, fisherman and  former executive of the United Fishermen and Allied  Workers Union, passed away in The Pas, Manitoba.  15 YEARS AGO  Fire, discovered about 4 am Tuesday, resulted in a  complete demolition ot the building which housed the  Red Rooster Cafe on the highway at Davis Bay.  20 YEARS AGO  A junior high school for Sechelt is reported to be the  basis for the next school district referendum.  Continuance of the British Columbia Ferry strike prompted emergency measures Monday by local Sechelt  and Pender Harbour merchants in replacing depleting  stocks of basic commodities, particularly foodstuffs.  25 YEARS AGO  Representatives of three chambers of commerce  from Pender Harbour, Sechelt and Gibsons, have approved the opening of a road to the Skookumchuk as a  major tourist attraction.  30 YEARS AGO  WH Payne, Conservative, Coast-Capilano, announced  Honourable Howard Green, Minister of Public Works,  has authorized a breakwater and floats lor Gibsons Landing wilh work to slart on the project at a very early  date.  35 YEARS AGO  The chairman of the St. Mary's Hospilal Committee  reports that during the past week the number ol patients has been increased. It is hoped thai Ihis is a sign  ol renewed interest in the hospital.  The Sunshine  Published by GLASSFORD PRESS LTD.

PREMIER: Yes...let me tell  you we are the first  government...  C.N.: And the reason I'm  asking is thai nobody really  knows where vou are going...  PREMIER: No...and you  know, it's strange, I've been accused of not...but the thing is, 1  have a philosophy and I have  specific principles by which 1 try  and operate..from which 1  would hope Ihe cabinet operates  I ihink I'm able to respond  more quickly lo situations,  because 1 didn't have lo caucus  a whole lol or have a whole lol  of meetings or bring in experts  on whal Ihe decision had to be  with respect to abortion.  Now thai decision could be  made fairly easily and because 1  Ihink, as 1 mentioned to caucus  this morning, where we are  operating very much according  to a set of principles and according to a philosophy, the whole  of the decision making philosophy becomes easier. We  don'l have lo get into long  studies and we don't have to get  into a whole lot of meeting or  caucusing on any number of  Ihose sorts of things.  However, we are the first  government in Canada that I'm  Peace notes  aware of, beyond say a local or  a regional government, that is in  fact now developing a ten year  plan. And the reason for that is  because I'm concerned about  things we're doing today and  how they may impact in future.  For example: Every time  Ihere is an order that comes to  cabinet lo export logs...whether  it is one log or a thousand logs,  I feel something ring inside me.  Or even if it is a load of chips!  And of course the argument  presented, and fairly too, is that  well these are logs out of areas  which if they weren't exported  in log form, wouldn't be economical to get inlo the sawmill.  They will probably gel diseased or rotten anyway, so you  have to get them oul and Ihe only way lo gel them out is in log  form. That's the argument...  not a bad argument.  My problem with this is that I  don'l know from whal information available today what our  needs mighl be ten years...or 15  years...or 25 years.  C.N.: Or maybe even Ihe rest  of the world's needs.  PREMIER: Or even the rest  of the world's needs and I think  without a plan, for example, we  may be shipping a resource that  we ought lo be hanging on to  more carefully. So we're  developing this ten year plan,  for argument's sake.  As well we have highways  building programs, we have  reforestation   programs,   we  have capital programs....  ...generally,   when   times   are  good, we build more schools,  more hospitals, and more public  facilities of all sorts.  I'm saying we should really,  in that plan, attempt to identify  when it is we should be building  schools and the hospitals and  the roads. And we shouldn't be  building those in good times, instead, we should be building  those in bad times. We budget,  and normally when times are  good and there's lots of revenue  coming in, we tend to expand  the public service...we grow in  the programs we provide.  During good times we should  be cutting back on our programs. During tough times we  should try and maintain or increase the programs available.  We have been doing all Ihese  things backwards because  governments al the senior level  don't operate according to plan,  they operate by some political  format. We've got to gel away  from lhat. We've got to be  more philosophical...more  planning...more pinciples.  C.N.: What about the  lifestyle of people 50 or 60 years  from now? You spoke of the  family unit (in a speech a few  minutes before) and wanting to  preserve that. To some people  one of the frightening things of  you even speaking in those  terms to deal with is the traditional separation of church and  state. And which almost gets in  to the state getting into the  morality of the society.  PREMIER: ...Yes...I realize  that may be a fear to some people...although...  C.N.: Do you have a way of  alleviating that fear, other than  maybe time?  PREMIER: I think perhaps  the message that somehow has  to get through at some point is  that part of the reason that we  are facing so many problems  socially is that the politicians are  sort of being very defensive  about their morals. If they are  involved in church or such like  organizations they tend to be  defensive about that and they  say 'well now what I am saying  here' or 'what it is that I am doing is in no way a reflection of  my own personal beliefs or  moral beliefs'.  Well if lhal no longer counts,  if the electorate simply says we  like the guy because of how he  looks or for what he says and  his moral background or what  he does after he leaves the  podium or the political stage  doesn't really matter, that's his  own business, then we're in big  trouble. I have a problem with  that...so...  C.N.: I guess what you are  saying is it is going to affect  your decisions anyway...  PREMIER: It's going to affect your decisions regardless.  C.N.: Thank you.  PREMIER: It's a pleasure,  Ken, thank you.  The case against a nuclear Nanoose  By Iris Griffith  CONVERSION  Let's take a closer look at  jobs. Even if you do gel a job  that depends on the military,  you're not secure. Defense  policies and priorilies change.  Surprise cutbacks arc common.  In 1984, at Comox, 409  Squadron was taken out. Right  now 17 Pinetree radar stations,  three of them in B.C., are being  closed because of a decision '  made in Washington, D.C.  PLANNING TO CONVERT  Fortunately the DND is helping the Pinetree communities to  find alternate uses for the stations, with some success.  The Pentagon did a study of  military bases which had closed  since 1961. Two or three years  after the shutdowns, they found  an increase of over 50 per cent  in civilian employment. (6)  It figures. Military use  depresses the economy, so conversion ought to stimulate the  economy. Many studies show  this happens most quickly  where local people have planned.  WHY SHOULD WE CARE  On the Sunshine Coast we do  care whether other places suffer  or prosper from a military shutdown. We have Iwo good economic reasons. Our prosperity  is tied to the lower mainland  and where there are several  military dependent industries.  More obviously, if Ihe Gulf of  Georgia and Jervis'Inlet range  areas are converted to imaginative uses, we may gain a  lol from the spinoffs of increased trade and employment.  RECOMMENDATION ��  That to involve citizens in  planning for conversion of  military industries and installations, if and when necessary,  Ihe governmenl form Allcrnate  Uses Committees.  That such committees on ihe  Sunshine Coasl be encouraged  lo work with similar bodies on  Vancouver Island.  ACCIDENTS  We have seen thai playing  host to Ihe nuclear navy does  not help us to make a living and  does not help us to avoid war  and thus stay alive. In fact, it  might kill us.  Here is a vivid quote from  Maxine Carpenter (7) of Vancouver Island. If it sounds emotional, please keep in mind that  each statement can be born out  by the more scholarly works in  our bibliography.  "Tonight there is a nuclear  submarine in Nanoose Bay,  waiting for the morning's  weapons test. This means there  is a nuclear reactor floating in  the water, a reactor which produces power for the ship. An  atomic chain reaction, which is  a delicate and chancey thing, is  taking place on a relatively  small ship which also carries  nuclear weapons of 300 times  Ihe    fire     power    which  destroyed...Hiroshima.  "There are some differences  between the reactor at the bottom of Nanoose Bay this  moonlit night and the one at  Chernobyl which irradiated Ihe  Ukrainian heartland. That  disaster happened because the  safety precautions required of  land reactors were overridden  by the planl's operators.  "A naval reactor has no sticks,  precaulions. It has no containment building and no emergency system for cooling a runaway  reaction and the resulting  overheated core.  "The major difference between Chernobyl and Nanoose  Bay is lhal al Chernobyl, there  were reasonable emergency  plans in place, and when Ihe accident happened, many people  were saved who would otherwise have sickened and died.  The people for miles around  were evacuated. There were  decontaminalion learns to Ireat  the people who could nol gel  away fast enough. There were  facilities for the refugees and  trained personnel of all kinds lo  deal wilh Ihe aftermath.  "The land is useless now and  the people of Chernobyl will  never go home again, bul most  of them are al least alive.  "For the people around  Nanoose Bay and Esquimalt  and Vancouver, there is  nothing. There is no plan. There  are no trained civilian personnel. There is nol even a method  for notifying residents that Ihere  has been an accident.  "Unless the accident includes  an explosion, the people of central Vancouver Island will nol  be aware of trouble unlil Ihey  begin to die.  "The navies, both Canadian  and US, say there is no danger  of an accident aboard a nuclear  submarine. Nevertheless, Ihey  havc^ui^ n "nes for all (he accident scenarios, ["he China Syndrome, complete core meltdown, is called 'Faded Giant'.  That catchy name covers Ihe  reality that, if meltdown look  place, every living Ihing wilhin  one kilometre of the site would  die immediately. Deaths on a  wider scale would take from a  few hours to a few decades to  occur.  "Anything less than meltdown is called an 'incident'. An  incident might be a runaway  chain reaction, like the one at  Chernobyl, or an accidental  spill of the water which has kept  the reactor cool and is now  radioactive itself. This is by far  the most common reactor accident."  That touches the three aspects  which concern us. The reactors  running the ships, nuclear  weapons and emergency plans.  REACTORS  From what is known, one  survey found among the world's  nuclear vessels there has been  one problem, such as a flood,  fire, or mechanical breakdown,  aboul every three months. Over  a quarter of Ihese involved the  nuclear power plant. Most of  these are no! made public,  however. (8)  The piece I just read oul did  nol mention that if a reactor  melts down through the bottom  of a ship, "as ihe molten  uranium interacls with water, a  hydrogen and steam explosion  could occur further dispersing  radioactive contaminant." (9)  It did not say, either, how  commonly a vessel leaks radiation. Some knowledgeable people maintain that they do it all  the time. (10) Two of the ships  most recently visiting have been  discovered, in other locations,  leaking radioactive coolant  water, twice each. (11)  To be continued...  Maryanne's Viewpoint  Staying within  our limitations?  by Maryanne West  Il was February 1948 when  Ihe first Boxer became a part of  our family. We were living in  Germany near Hanover and  Frank was a Civilian Intelligence Officer wilh Ihe  British Army of Occupation  after the war. The unil was in  the process of moving lo a rural  area and we were advised to get  a guard dog.  "We can have a dog" Frank  said, "but you have to  remember we won't be able to  take him home because of Ihe  quarantine requirements," and  1 thought we'll cross thai bridge  when we come lo it!  I don'l ihink I'd ever seen a  Boxer, bul I didn'l want a German Shepherd or Doberman  and Frank knew of someone  who had a litter of Boxer puppies. We were lucky in lhal  they'd nol had Iheir ears cropped yel and the one we chose  (he chewed on the buttons of  Frank's uniform) didn't qualify  as a show animal, he had a little  pink spol on his otherwise black  muzzle (fashions change in  dog's coals loo!).  If I remember rightly we paid  for him wilh a carton of cigarettes and a bottle of scotch.  II so happened lhal Frank  was transferred to Hamburg instead of making the move with  the rest of the unit and when we  moved in early December the  pup wasn'l old enough to leave  his mother and it wasn't until  February that he was brought  north by train.  I was in the early months of  pregnancy and had never felt so  ill, nor so sorry for myself, but  who could feel miserable for  long with a crazy little pup with  sparkling brown eyes brimful of  mischief in contrast to his worried, wrinkled little face and the  endearing habit of wiggling his  whole body because he had such  a short tail!  Needless to say three years  and two children later we flew  Puck home and came back ourselves and after his six months  in quarantine we broughl him to  Canada. This time we flew,  Puck had put on so much  weight in kennels we couldn't  afford to fly him too and he  came by ship to Halifax and  across Canada by train,  Except for a few brief weeks  -which seemed like eons we've  had a Boxer for the past forty  years. One is however supposed  lo gain some modicum of  sense as one gels older and so  we decided lhal No. 5 was lo be  the last Boxer. After all these  super-charged, energetic crazy  dogs so determined to do their  own thing are for young people  and need a family of kids to  keep up with. Besides we would  slill have our nice middle-aged  dachshund which is just Ihe dog  for seniors - righl? Reasonably  obedient and beginning lo slow  down.  So when we lost our beloved  Janie in November we were all  sel to be sensible and Ihis time  sense would win out over sentiment, we'd get over watching  for thai funny face looking  around Ihe door, sparkling eyes  asking 'What can we gel into  today?" We'd face reality and  our limitations, etc.  Bul it's not so easy to put forty years behind you.  Facing one's limitations may  be laudable but the last thing  one needs when the years catch  up with you is to meet trouble  half-way - no sense lo get older  faster than you need. 1 had visions of us degenerating into  two little old people with a fat  old Dachshund.

Coast News, February 22,1988  Letters to the Editor  Not just fear of restructuring seen  Editor:  Re: Gibsons Restructuring  Study. 1 would like to make the  point that there was curiosity  and interest as well as fear of  the unknown at the recent  meeting of the restructuring  committee in Gibsons.  I would like to clarify that the  issue here is not restructuring  itself but rather to study the effects of restructuring on the  community as a whole. The impetus towards the study was  provided by the Gibsons  Economic Strategy Committee  of which I am a member, a  group comprised of a broad  cross-section   of  individuals  from the business trading area  and beyond, i.e., of the 11  members, only two actually  reside in the Town of Gibsons,  and five are from Area 'E'.  With the healthy future of the  entire community in their  minds, their report read in part  as follows:  "...a meaningful economic  strategy should encompass the  established community and  transcend the artificial boundaries which appear and could  well be proven obsolete to their  original intent.  "The economic trading area  of greater Gibsons has been  defined  as  including  all  of  Regional Areas 'E' and 'F' as  well as the town, from the sea to  the provincial forest reserve.  "Therefore, it is our first and  foremost recommendation that  an objective study be initiated to  report on the benefits and costs  of aligning Gibsons' actual artificial boundaries with those  economic.  "Such a report should meaningfully address existing community plans and assure that  there will be little or no change  in property taxes."  I think it is pretty hard to  read 'conspiracy', 'takeover'  and 'land grab' between those  lines!  Ralph challenged on sources  Editor:  Your correspondenl, (Mrs.)  Isabel Ralph, appears to be one  of those people who believes  something merely because she  saw it written somewhere. Or  perhaps she believes only what  she sees written in the Manchester Guardian, which she  likes to quote. Her statement  that the Russians, in invading  Afghanistan, were 'only protecting their own border'  makes me wonder.  Against what does she imagine Ihe Russians were protec  ting their border? Afghan  tribesmen whose stage of social  developmeni hardly brings  them lo the foothills of the  nuclear age? If this is the case,  and they felt they had a legitimate cause for the protection  of their own property, then  could they not have built fortifications along said border,  but within their own territory?  Surely this would have been  preferrable to an all-out invasion of a foreign land.  If the Russians, still assuming, of course, that their sole  concern was protection of their  border, needed help in constructing a system of fortifications, 1 suggest that perhaps  they could have borrowed back  the engineers they loaned to  East Germany in the fifties. I  have personally seen the border  fence and mine-strip built  there, and could highly recommend it to the Russians should  they ever pull out of Afghanistan permanently, and still  have fears for the security of  their own border.  J.A. Gill  Halfmoon Bay, B.C.  Canfor pollution protest  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following was received for  publication  Regional Waste Manager  Lower Mainland Region  Surrey, B.C.  I am writing regarding Waste  Management Permit PA-3095.  Canfor is applying to the  Ministry of Environment &  Parks for an amendment to this  existing Pollution Control Permit.  The amendment they are applying for would permit Canfor  to exceed provincial pollution  standards for several more  years. I strongly object to this  amendment being granted.  As you know, since 1978  Canfor has been permitted to  pollute beyond the minimum  standards set by the province.  This variance was granted on  the promise that Canfor would  clean up, if given more time.  They are requesting this amendment with the same promise. I  find it intolerable to allow Canfor to exceed provincial pollution standards any longer, when  the federal government is considering these standards  themselves inadequate.  Recently it has been discovered that highly toxic dioxins  are produced by pulp mills.  These dioxins are discharged in  to the surrounding environment  along with all the other waste  produced. Tragic results on  wildlife have been reported.  Statistics also show a higher  than normal rate of certain  kinds of cancer occuring on the  Sunshine Coast.  The Ministry of Environment  is responsible to set and enforce  pollution standards that protect  us and our environment.  With recent findings in mind,  I think it would be irresponsible  to grant Canfor their request  for an amendment.

Stan  you're lOO percent on target.  Also, it's nice to hear three  years later who the "unnamed  realtor" source is! At least the  $300,000 "storage shed" was  earning $3,200 per month triple  net income.  Possibly, Stan would like to  inform the taxpaying public  how the taxpayers ended up  owning a $550,000 piece of  speculative development property next to the mall.  Since you Stan, were a part  owner in this property next to  Ihe Trail Bay Mall, I'd suggest  that referring to the Capilano  College sale is a little like the  Pot Calling the Kettle Black, or  is that other saying It all  Depends on Who's Ox is Being  Gored, more appropriate!  R.W. Copping  Teacher support  Editor:  I was very upset by last  week's article in the Press concerning the hiring of Mr. Sword  at Gibsons Elementary.  While it's important to hire  local people where possible, the  most important issue here is,  who is most qualified for the  position?  My daughter is a student in  this classroom and I know that  this was a very difficult situation to step into.  Mr. Sword has done this admirably and we are lucky to  have him here.

Smith  People you meel any day, on  the bus, or waiting in line, are  usually interesting - they are just  being themselves.  There was a line-up this day  in the bank. You get used to it,  but people were beginning to be  dissatisfied.  "They ought to have a girl  floater for busy limes like this,"  said one woman, and I visualized a girl floating near the ceiling, like a lover in a Chagall  painting. But the complainer  dashed this image by explaining  that a 'floater' was a girl who  would fill in al busy periods and  do extra work.  1 thought the Chagall lype of  floater would be more interesting. And why limit it to  girls? Would nol ihis be againsl  the Charter of Rights? Why  should nol male tellers or bank  managers floai around al will?  I would certainly transfer my  pension cheques lo any institution which provided such a service. I'd even pay extra. I  wondered for a moment if  customers also mighl join in  and levitate ecstatically, becoming so rarified lhat their aloms  would pass through the atoms  of the ceiling and all would  mount, aspire, ascend, to the  Heavenly Teller, there to receive  Canfor seeks  permit extension  unlimited credit, forgiveness of  sins, an absolution from Fear of  Frying.  A little old man was standing  ahead of me in the line. I  thought he might be in his 80's.  He began to be impatient, in a  gentlemanly way.  "They'd better hurry up," he  said, "I'm ninety-two. 1 could  die before they get around to  me," he laughed.  It turned out that he was a  Scot. He told me his name and  said it was a very old name -over  a thousand years old, Robert  Finlayson.  He said he was from  Glasgow. I told him I was too,  bul I'd lost my accent. So we  started to talk aboul accents,  and he admitted to being able to  curse in Arabic. I asked him  how he'd come by this skill, and  he told me: As a young man  he'd served in Egypt and in  Galllpoli.  This interested me, as my  own father had served in Egypt  and later in France, as had this  Scot. "When Ihose camels gel  stubborn," he said, "you have  lo use Arabic."  1 said I'd heard it was an eloquent language.  "We made it sound  eloquent," he admitted.  And then the teller was ready  for him.  by Penny Fuller  Canadian Foresl Producls  has asked the Ministry of Environment and Parks to allow  Ihem to regulate the emissions  from their stacks at Port Mellon  based on the 'total loading concept' until their new plant is  constructed.  Under current regulalions  governing the mill, the company  is required to keep particulate  emmissions in each stack (or  chimney) to a certain maximum  level. Canfor wants lo be allowed to average the emission levels  from the stacks to meet that  level. Their application was  referred to the regional district's  Koch  says no  Sechelt Mayor Bud Koch has  already recalled a resolution  made at last Wednesday's council meeting. It had been decided  lo meel with representatives of  both Gibsons and the Regional  Dislricl to work toward some  kind of joint participation on  economic developmeni, sep-  cifically, 'to give serious consideration to the equitable and  cooperative contracting of such  service.'  Public Utilities Committee  (PUC) for comment last week.  The committee was not sympathetic. Director McGillivray  pointed out that the application  staled lhat there would be some  reduction in the total effluent  discharge.  With Jim Gurney abstaining,  the committee agreed to recommend to the board Canfor's request be denied until they came  up to standards.  However, in an interview  with the Coast News the next  day, regional board chairman  Peggy Connor said that she had  looked into the matter some  more and was inclined to be less  hard-line about the application.  She pointed out that part of the  new construction at the Port  Mellon site was supposed to be  some 'state of the art pollution  control'.

This bylaw may be cited for all purposes as "Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 555-7,  1988."  Take notice that the above paragraph is deemed to be a synopsis ot the bylaw, and not  deemed to be an interpretation thereof.  Pursuant also to Section 958 of the Municipal Act, it is not the Intention of Council to hold a  Public Hearing on Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 555-7 as an Official Community Plan is In  effect for the subject area, and the proposed bylaw is consistent with the plan.  A copy of the amending Bylaw Is available for inspection at the Gibsons Municipal office,  474 South Fletcher Road, during office hours.  Rob Buchan  Municipal Planner & Approving Officer  Sechelt Seniors  Pursuit of federal funds  by Larry Grafton  FUNDS FOR  ACTIVITY CENTRE  What could represent a major  break-through in our concerted  efforts, over a very long period  of time, to shake matching  funds loose from our Federal  Government, has finally  resulted in some action on their  part. Hopefully our surplus correspondence on behalf of our  branch was, at least, partly instrumental in their announcement.  The article I refer to was in  the Vancouver Sun of February  11 under the heading "Seniors  laud 'independence' fund" with  excerpts as follows:  "Federal Government's plan  to spend 30 million dollars  annually on a program to improve senior's independence  and quality of life is good  news", Ihe president of the  West End Seniors said. Health  and Welfare minister, Jake Epp  told an international conference  on aging, in Saskatoon "that  self care projects, education and  training will be among activities  funded. Projects improving the  life of specific groups such as  older women and seniors living  in rural or remote areas will get  priority."  Follow-up letters are already  on their way to Jake Epp and  George Hees, ministers of  Health and Welfare and Seniors  Affairs, respectively.  BINGO  One of our most popular activities in the hall is our Social  Bingo which takes place on the  second and fourth Thursday of  each month. Helen Neelands is  the committee chairlady. There  is plenty of room at the tables  for many more players, and of  course, "the more the merrier".  Wilh regard to refreshments  after the games, Olive Marshall  and Edith Caldwell will look  afler the tea and serving of the  food which is supplied for the  group by different volunteers  each session. Under this system,  the volunteer's responsibility  ends when the food is delivered  to the kitchen.  It will be interesting to see  how this works out, and if it  may eventually become a  feasibility for some other of our  sessions by members who attend  specific activities faithfully.  THE 69ERS  Our busy schedule keeps us  hopping for just a little different  presentation.  On Wednesday, February 24,  we will be performing for the  patients at Fellburn Hospital in  Burnaby. This has become one  of our regular "ports of call",  so to speak.  On St. Patrick's Day we will  be enjoying one of our favourite  audiences at Shorncliffe, where  we get participation and plenty  of   enthusiasm  March 27 will see us on our  way to Powell River for a repeat  performance of Nikki Weber's  extravaganza of last fall. This  should be a great experience for  not only the 69ers, but the entire  group of entertainers who participate, since it will take place  in the Powell River Complex  Theatre.

This is the sixtieth anniversary  of the forming of the First  Guide Company at St. Bart's  church.  ; "If you were a member of a  branch of Girl Guides or served  in any way in their program in  Gibsons and District, you are  invited to join us...," the letter  :��� states.  j On April 9 there will be a din-  jjner and fun evening for former  I guides, leaders and parents in  ;'the Legion hall in Gibsons. A  ���{time to renew former friendly ships and memories.  The next day, a Sunday, there  |i will be a day for all the present  it guides and their leaders at  jJCamp Olave.  i   Registration forms can be obtained at Webber's Photo and  at Linnadine's Shoes in Gib-  4 sons.  '. Further information from  J Meg Dickson at 886-2429 or  ;from Agnes Labonte at  J886-74I5.  J The photo of Guides,  {Brownies, Scouts and Cubs in  ���the Coast News of January 18  ' last brought memories to Dick  HKennett. "I recognize former  classmates standing alongside  four Mrs. Morris. There is Mary  Veevers, Grace Hopkins, Pat  Frandell, Janet Bell and Elinor  McCall and Ross Gibson on the  far right."  "I served in World War II  with Ross on Atlantic convoy  duty aboard HMCS Royal-  mount."  Dick says of Mrs. Morris, the  Guide leader of the founding of  the company in 1928, "We lost  one of the backbones of the  Gibsons Anglican church, altar  guild, choir and the Guides and  Brownies."  Dick remembers Mrs. Morris  walking in from her home on  North Road in her brisk  military manner or "when  riding her bicycle in her Guide  uniform looking like an army  dispatch rider with an urgent  message".  Referring to the planned  ceremony to commit her ashes  to the sea, Dick adds, "When  my ashes reach Mariners' Rest,  it will be comforting to know I  will be awash in good  company,"  SCOUTS, TOO  The birthday of the founder  of Scouting, Lord Baden-  Powell, was celebrated by a  special event held in Chatelech  yesterday attended by Scouts,  Cubs and Beavers.  A Scouts camp will be held  March 1, and in May, the local  troop will join 500 Scouts from  United States at a camp in  Oregon.  Boys from Roberts Creek to  Williamsons Landing make up  the 14-member troop that meets  Wednesdays in Elphinstone  Secondary. And there's a  flourishing Cub pack and  Beaver colony as well - about  fifty boys in all.

February 22.1988  Pender Patter  Commercial  Clinic needs more volunteers  VEHICLE  INSPECTION  by Myrtle Winchester, 883-9302  Following is an appeal for  workers that I received from Vi  Tyner for the Pender Harbour  and District Health Clinic:  "Most of you use the clinic.  It's convenient, isn't it? Did you  know that much of the equipment was bought with money  raised by the Bargain Barn and  the Showcase at the clinic?  "We may think that the clinic  is well-equipped, but there is  constant need for replacements  so work at the Bargain Barn  and the Showcase is still needed.  "Unfortunately, people wear  out too. Many helpers have  died. Others have become too  old to live here and have toddled off to Vancouver. The remaining workers are getting  older and creakier every year  and some of them are about  ready to toddle off too.  "We know that everyone is  busy, but couldn't you donate  an afternoon once every two  months? It would make all the  difference in the world to the  few who have been carrying on.  If your bones are really creaky,  you can sit at the Showcase and  sell items there. If you are more  active, you could choose the  Bargain Barn. It's trying to stay  open on Thursday and Saturday  afternoons, but sometimes has  to close because there is no one  to work. It is pleasant work;  you can talk with your  neighbours.  "Please don't say that your  time is too valuable to give  away. Think of people who are  sicker than you are. Muriel, at  883-2609, will be glad to put  your name on the 'Sometimes'  list."

CLINIC RESIGNATIONS  President Jack Cook and  Vice President Fred Rayburn  resigned at the February 2  board meeting of the Pender  Harbour and District Health  Centre Society and board  member and past president Roy  Mansfield resigned a few days  later.  Bill Griffith, newly-elected to  replace Cook, said that the  resignations were due to  "...minor, internal problems  about policy that won't affect  the clinic's operation."  COMMUNITY CLUB NEWS  The executive meeting was  held on February 8, and the turnout was good.  Plans for the Community  Hall include washroom renovations and a family concert in the  spring under the direction of  April Charlton.  MISSING IN ACTION  A number of tea towels have  been missing from the Community Hall since December.  Because black market prices for  tea towels are so low these days,  it is suspected that the missing  towels were taken to someone's  home for laundering.

Hopefully  everything's covered this week.  I've been blaming the space  shortage on Mr. Vander Zaim's  visit to the Sunshine Coast, a  newsworthy event that needed  coverage and thus used extra  space. If you can't blame the  premier, who can you blame?  LENT BEGINS TODAY  When I was (very) young,  Lent meant giving up something  that  you would  really miss.  I've figured out that you  don't need to be Catholic to  abstain from negative behaviour, just like you don't need  to wait for Cold Turkey Day to  quit smoking.  Thus, a Give-Up-For-Lent  list for Harbourites:  1. Commit a bit of time to a  community organization. The  saying here is, "Ten percent of  the people do 90 percent of the  community work," and it's unfortunate but true.  2. If you belong to an  organization, stop bitching  about opinions and actions of  others. Remember the general  objectives of your organization,  and don't let petty personality  conflicts and nitpicky issues  destroy them.  3. If you drive, stop sliding  across the yellow line on corners.  HARBOUR CALENDAR  February 22 - Health Centre  Auxiliary Meeting.  February 23  - Community  Roller Skating.

Halfmoon Bay Happenings  Chimney fire hazard  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  The Halfmoon Bay  Volunteer Fire Department  responded to a call last week to  a chimney fire in Eureka. Once  again the firemen wish to emphasize the fact that it is not advisable to try to put the fire out  by yourself as a dangerous accident could so easily happen.  Call the fire department immediately, they get there in a  matter of minutes and have the  manpower and equipment to  deal with the situation.  The volunteers and their  wives had a most enjoyable  Valentine Day dinner and dance  at Coopers Green Hall recently.  AT THE HALL  Scheduled for Sunday,  March 6 from 10 am til I pm is  a Flea Market with proceeds of  the table rentals going towards  the Welcome Beach Community Association. There are only a  few tables still available al $6  and you can call 885-3130 for  information.  Should be a nice little outing  on a Sunday morning and you  can have the available refreshments while you shop for some  treasures.  Also at the Hall there will be  a St. Patrick's dinner and dance  on Saturday, March 12, so get  out the green for that one.  Reservations can be made by  calling Marg Vorley at 885-3165  or Marg Buckley al 885-3305.  Tickets are $7.50 each. No  doubt the St. Patrick night will  prove to be as great a success as  the Valentine night which was  well attended and enjoyed by  all.  A special highlight of the  evening was a presentation  made to much-loved Alice  Halford who was celebrating  her 80th birthday. Who would  have believed that it wasn't just  her 60th. Happv birthdav Alice.  AT THE SCHOOL  For the past six weeks the  children of the Halfmoon Bay  School have been working on a  parent-sponsored Reading Blitz.  The children completed their  Olympic Rings record of their  daily reading and on Friday  they brought their signed  records back to school.  At an assembly they all enjoyed sampling maple sugar  candy. Tim Ardiel and Glen  Funk had brought a quantity of  snow down from the mountains, then they boiled maple  syrup on a fire, poured the  syrup over the snow to produce  the maple sugar candy. This was  a great treat for all the little ones  and thanks are due to all the  parents who were involved in  the events.  In the meantime the Reading  Blitz will continue for the rest of  Ihe year until the end of May.  Recently a choir was formed  at Ihe school and the children  are busy practicing at lunch  hour on Mondays and Thursdays. The reason for this is so  that they might participate as a  school in the Sunshine Coast  Music Festival in March. They  will be performing, along with  choirs from all other district  schools on March 17. This will  be in the morning and everyone  will be welcome to attend.  FITNESS  Mokie's fitness classes are going well at Coopers Green Hall.  Anyone can drop in on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30  lo 4:30 and at 9:30 Sunday mornings.

As with all delegations, council will be reserving any consideration until the next council  meeting.  Estimates  queried  -A  Gibsons Bluff resident Bill  Lasuta took municipal council  lo task last Tuesday evening  concerning the estimated costs  of supplying sewer service to the  Bluff.  "I'm just kind of curious as  to where these figures are coming from," he told council as he  went through a list of various  quotations reported over the  years. "In the 70's it was recommended that to put sewage on  the Bluff would exceed the total  cost of sewage in Gibsons."  "We can only go ahead with  the figures that we presently  have," saM Mayor Diane  Strom. She went on to say that  the Town has dealt with Dayton  and Knight, the people who put  forth the latest estimates, for  many years and have found  them to be accurate.  She pointed to the estimates  on the reservoir that bids have  jusi come in for. "Their  estimates are just slightly above  the lowest tendered price," she  said.  "I would say personally  $225,000 won't scratch the surface," said Lasuta pointing out  Ihe high cosls of blasting.  Strom replied that should  lhat be the case they would not  be allowed to go ahead anyway.  Contract to  Kelowna  Gibsons Council has accepted  a bid for the construction of a  200,000 gallon water reservoir  from the low bidder Mandrax  Enterprises Ltd., of Kelowna,  B.C.  Ten tenders for this contract  were received varying between  $172,316 and $219,676. The accepted tender was approximately $7500 lower than Dayton and  Knight estimates.  "I am a little concerned that  we are tendering off the  Coast," commented Alderman  John Reynolds. There had been  two bids from local companies.  "This is a Kelowna firm that  does not do much in the  winter," Adminstrator Lorraine  Goddard explained. "They bid  at a low break even price so they  can keep their people  employed."  Kiwanis  Auxiliary  by Helen Weinhandl  The February 1988 meeting  was chaired by Margy Wheeler  in the absence of President  Rosemary Fay. The 23 members  were reminded that this month  is our 8th anniversary.  Committee and treasury  reports followed and all running  smoothly.  It is evident from the  residents' minutes that all are  enjoying the outings "on the  bus". This gives great satisfaction to our hard working,  dedicated members.  Cathy Baxter informed us  that the new "lift aide" is proving to be a great benefit to all.  A short discussion followed  regarding committee and  volunteer responsibilities. We  are reminded lhat more  volunteers are always welcome  and are an integral part of the  care system. A special thank  you to Betty Cochrane, one of  our dedicated members.  Election of officers followed:  President, Rosemary Fay; Vice-  President, Judy Holding;  Secretary, Mamie Qually and  Treasurer, Maureen Partridge.  Committee Heads: Tuck  Shop, Maureen Heaven; Personal Shoppers, Rita Hincks,  Eleanor Chinnick, Harriet  Cargo, Doreen Myslicki and D.  Hurren.

So when I saw Ihe price of cauliflowers I couldn't  resist them. Beautiful, tight and white, they sat on my kitchen  counter, perfect examples of the art of nature. I gazed at them admiring every tight liltle floweret, the corolla of delicate green leaves.  "So whatcha going lo do wilh those...?", he asked. I flinched.  Reality had jumped on me once again with its great big hobnail  boots. So...one nighl we had cauliflower with hard boiled eggs  smothered with a creamy cheese sauce, and served with cheese  and onion buns. Thai met with their approval. We had it with a dip.  Ralher attractive in between the carrots. We had it stir fried with  snowpeas. Aesthetically very pleasing. And then we had it as soup.  This I wondered about. They can be so conservative.

Arts Beat  Ethnic dining  Throughout history, people  have celebrated significant  events with feasting and dancing. The Jewish holiday of  Purim corning up next week will  be the excuse for another of the  popular 'ethnic nights' at the  Arts Centre on Saturday,  February 27. Purim is the merriest holiday on the Jewish  calendar - an occasion for noise,  silliness, dressing up in costume  and, of course, eating and  drinking.  'Israeli Night' begins al 6 pm  with a potluck banquet of  Jewish and Israeli foods (call  the Arts Centre for ideas). The  festivities continue at 8 pm with  folk dancing under the direction  of Adrian Belshaw.  Fancy dress on the Purim  theme is encouraged (especially  for kids). The Purim story is  found in the Book of Esther in  the Old Testament. Il is set in  Persia and the characters of  kings, queens, wise old men and  wicked advisors are central to  the drama. In the end, good  triumphs over evil, disaster is  averted, and a people are saved.  What better reason lo incorporate feasting and dancing into  the culture!  Tickets for the celebration  (everyone is welcome!) are $3  for adults and $2 for children  and are available at Ihe Arts  Centre, Talewind Books,  Seaview Market and Hunter  Gallery.  VIOLA & PIANO RECITAL  Just a few tickets are left for  the Rivka Golani/Kum-Sing  Lee concert at the Twilight  Theatre on February 28 at 2  pm. It is the fourth in Ihe Arts  Council's popular Countryside  Concert Series and will include  piano works by Bach, Scarlatti,  Brahms and Chopin, several  solo viola pieces and Iwo  sonatas for viola and piano by  Schubert and Brahms.  Kum-Sing Lee, an exceptional and poetic performer, has  appeared here several limes  before. This is the first local  performance by Ms Golani, the  world's leading viola soloist and  described as 'a musical dynamo'  by Musical America.  The Arts Council has been  given the use of a nine-foot  Baldwin grand for the occasion  (courtesy of Baldwin) and  Salmon's Transfer and Canfor  have contributed lo Ihe moving  costs.  Tickets for ihis exciting concert cost $12.50 and can be  reserved by calling Jo Hammond ai 886-2513.

There is one major  route we have not yet followed,  Ihe highway to Salmo and Trail.  We decide we may as well touch  all the possible bases. This time  Mike and Sandi come along  with us.  The road, apparently highly  treacherous in winter, slices  through a narrow valley walled  in by low enigmatic mountains.  There are homesteads here and  there along the way, but no real  communities until we arrive al  ihe old curiously named mining  town of Ymir (pronounced  Why-mer by Ihe locals). It is  another drab backwater thai  reminds me of Coalmonl with  less character. We don't linger  there.  Salmo is a larger more attractive town on the surface  (although it is purported to harbour a rather unpleasant nest of  rednecks). Considerable attempt has been made to pretty  the place up and give it the appearance of an old western cow  town. We decide lo stop here  for a couple of beers. This eals  up a good part of the afternoon.  All loo soon, it is Tuesday  and time to wend our way back  to the Coast. We bid our hosts  goodbye and head south. We  have one more Renata stop to  make in Castlegar, however.  Matt Rohn, our final contact,  lives on a quiet street in the  older part of the town. Like  everyone else we have met in  connection with this story, he  turns'out to be remarkably  friendly and cooperative.  Matt is an amiable man in his  early 70's. He first came to  Renata with his family in the  mid 20's and as a boy knew all  ihe original settlers. Fred Nash  and his loyal horse, Jack, were  still around in those days and he  shows us photographs of the  'Father of Renata' and his  relatives, he even has a copy of  ihe town plan for long vanished  Brooklyn.  Matt Rohn was an important  figure in Renata's most prosperous years. He helped found  the town's firsl fruit packing  eooperative and served as its initial manager. Matt married in  Renala and raised his family  ihere. He has many excellent  pictures of ihe town in its heyday. Having actually been  there, Yvonne and 1 can now  grasp Ihe full extent of whal was  lost. The small benchland that  Max Weisner now owns, is only  a very minor backdrop to a  flourishing foreground of farms  and roads. Matt points out the  beach where Ihey used lo go  swimming. All of il is now deep  under ihe cold waters of the  lake.  When lalk firsl began aboul  ihe Keenlysidc Oam Project in  ihe I950's, Man saw the writing  on ihe wall and broke his  reliance on Renala by taking a  job wilh the forestry, But he  was no less incensed than Max  Weisner when Ihe final crunch  came. He stubbornly refused to  negotiate wilh hydro for the  token price ihey offered. Only  when Ihe bulldozers had levelled  mosl of ihe farms around his  property, did he finally  capitulate.  Mall speaks warmly of a recent reunion of former Rena-  lans lhal was held in Robson  earlier ihis year. It was [he firsl  such gathering to be held since  ihe town's destruction and people came from as far away as  Manitoba and the United  Slates. "They don'l forget,"  says Matt.  No, they certainly do not  forget. As we leave Matt Rohn's  place and start the long  Coastward run, I think about  Renata and its legend. Due to  the efforts of Max Weisner and  his friends, the town has never  entirely died. On lhal windy  benchland above the submerged  community, a small vestige of  the place still lives. Perhaps, in  time, a whole new setllement  will form around it. Renala,  after all, does mean 'rebirth'.  Cowrie St.,  Sechell  = FRAMING SALE!!=  Once A Year Special!

He hid  himself away  in   blacked-out  penthouses and, when he had lo  move, moved only al nighl. His  closest  advisors   lost  contact  with him. Wives were estranged. Politicians left messages that  were never replied lo. And as  speculation   as   to   H.H.'s  whereabouts   and   influence  upon ihe machinations of a  world he supposedly no longer  cared about grew and grew, it  became obvious that H.H. was  becoming more than just  a  man, more than anolher eccentric   multi-millionaire.   More  i than  a  crazed   and   neurotic  'megalomaniac - H.H. became a  myth in his own time.  ���   American   playwright   Sam  .Shepard enjoys dissecting con-  j temporary myths.

He wants his women.  They will arrive individually.  They will fly in by jel. They will  come alone. Afler 15 long and  shadowy years of seclusion he  wants to see ihem. He wants to  talk to them. Most of all, he  wants lo ask them a few questions. He wants to know 'whal  it's been like.'  "Whal what's been like?"  "Life. Living...Thai's not so  unusual, is il?"  Driftwood Players are currently rehearsing Seduced and  are scheduled lo begin performances in the firsl week of  March.  The cast of four includes  Alice Albrecht as Luna, the  refined and ageless Hollywood  starlet whose appearance has a  profound effect on Henry's  well-being and very nearly  causes his death. Alice is no  stranger to Driftwood productions and her performance in  Seduced promises io turn a few  heads.  Pat Baker, back from a two  year absence, plays Raul,  Henry's bodyguard and Ihe  main force behind ihe intricate  web lhal has become the  mysterious H.H.'s existence.  Alison Macpherson, a  newcomer lo the Driftwood  Players, premieres here as  Miami, the fiesty bombshell  that flew in expecting 'a bunch  of little guys all dressed up like  Phillip Morris.' Alison's  courage alone assures her a  bright future with Driftwood.  Ken Salmond, another newcomer to the Driftwood group,  tackles the role of the ornery  and irascible Mr. Hackamore.  Ken is no stranger lo the  theatre scene and comes to us  with an extensive background in  the Dramatic Arts.  Seduced is being directed by  Jay Pomfrel. This will be Jay's  second directing attempt and he  promises a different picture  from last year's Bus Stop.  Seduced is a different kind of  play. It takes place in a world  where strange things can, and  do, happen.'  Running March 3,4, and 5 at  Ihe Roberts Creek Hall, Seduced will be Restricted (18 years of  age and over admitted only,  please) because, let's face it, if  Henry Malcolm Hackamore  can be seduced, so can you.  A few months ago I did a  profile of expatriate English  bluesman, Long John Baldry  lo publicize his initial stand at  Elphie's Cabaret. In the normal  course of events I would have  followed this up with a review  of the show. However, Yvonne  and I had made earlier plans to  go in search of Renata, the  vanished Arrow Lake community, so 1 was obliged to give Mr.  Baldry a miss.  Last Friday I found myself in  ihe righl place at Ihe right time  for Long John's return engagement.. Il was well worth the  wait.  I am not exactly a stranger to  Elphie's Cabaret but I don'l  recall ever seeing the place so  crowded. Baldry had obviously  made a strong impression on his  previous visit. The local blues  fans were out in force and when  my eyes adjusted to the dim-lit  room, 1 recognized a lot of  familiar faces. I table hopped  and shot the breeze with  numerous old cronies until the  first set began.  Baldry, a remarkably relaxed  and good humoured fellow,  launched into a string of blues  standards, including such classics as Going Down Slow and  Good Morning Blues. He  played expert acoustic guitar accompanied by a fine harp player  and a rhythm man. Baldry has a  strong flexible voice and an obvious love of the material. He  wrung new meaning out of the  traditional lyrics and drew  bursts of spontaneous applause  from the enthusiastic crowd.  About halfway through the  set, Baldry introduced his  remarkable female partner,  Kathi Macdonald. Ms Mac-  donald, who formerly worked  with the Ike and Tina Turner  Revue, has a voice that must be  heard to be believed. A white  soul singer of the first water, she  can twist her several octave  voice through vocal gymnastics  that would do Aretha Franklin  proud. She and Baldry duetted  on several indigo classics to  great effect. Their very different  voices twine together naturally,  counterpointing each other.  After the first set, I managed  to inveigle my way pasl several  very large body guards io meel  Long John and his entourage. I  found Baldry extremely easy to  talk to. The fact that we both  came from England didn't hurl,  I guess. We rambled on aboul  the blues in general. I was  fascinated to hear thai Baldry  had played with jazz legend,  Jimmy Rushing, long time  Count Basie vocalist, the  original 'Mr. Five by Five'.

He proved lo  the audience thai the bassoon is  capable of many moods and  colours within its generous three  and a half octave range.  As an introduction, he played  a few brief excerpts from well  known orchestral works where  the bassoon shines in its own  glory - all of ihem very different  in lone,colour and mood.  He was ihen joined by Leslie  Janos, piano, for ihe first work  by Fasch (a contemporary of  Bach). Mr. Zukerman Introduces! Fasch's works as being made  up of alternating movements,  'slow - fasch - slow - fasch' and  proceeded lo play Ihe 'fasch'  movements very viriuosiically.  The beautifully lyrical  Mozarl rondo, originally for  violin, showed us anolher side  of versatility of Ihis instrument,  which was immediately offset  by 'Contrasts' by Eli Sieg-  meister (composer of Tubby Ihe  Tuba). We were shown some  more pyrotechnics with a rondo  by Kalliwoda from early I8lh  century Prague.  After the intermission, we  saw a few slides which Mr.  Zukerman had brought to provide more historical background on the bassoon and its  music. Then we heard Ihe  adagio from Weber's Concerto  Op. No. 75, which alas was all  too short. '  The last piece on the program  was a fiendishly difficult arrangement by Mr. Zukerman of  some of Rossinni's 'Sins of my  old Age'.  Throughout ihe program,  Leslie Janos' unobtrusive accompaniment provided an excellent addition lo ihe afternoon  concert,  OMEGA  FEBRUARY PIZZA SPECIALS  ,   (N01 VAI If) ON FRIDAYS, SATURDAYS OR SUNDAYS)  LARGE for the price of a MEDIUM  MEDIUM for the price of a SMALL  Muy     Overlooking Gibsons Harbour    f>MI'  Reservations call 886-2268  First Rate  ENTERTAINM!  at the  A  Feb. 26  &27  8:30 pm -  Midnight  Come In For A  GREAT EVENING  Hwy 101 Gibsons  Across from Sunnycrest Mall  886-8171  Your guide to  the Finest in  area dining  A listing of  restaurants  and pubs  TmuM  ifceCwwi  Being a newcomer to Ihe Coast, I had not yet experienced the  elegant dining of the Jolly Rogei.

After appetizers of lively Caesar Salad wilh just the righl lang  and rich French Onion Soup, wc ordered. My choice was the  prime rib, and 1 have nol lasted better. Il was tender, delicious, and  done nol a degree more or less that absolute perfect medium-rare.  The horseradish is even worthy of comment: the kind thai  horseradish connoiseurs will fight for, even on Valentine's Day. My  companion ordered the Amaretto Chicken, a wonderful dish lhal I  sampled repeatedly, just lo be sure of how sumptions it really was.  What could he say? II was Valentine's Day.  Our entrees included asparagus spears and baked potatoes, both  done to perfection, and we somehow found room for dessert,  homemade cherry cheesecake and Monty Cristos, bolh luxurious  and creamy.  For an extra treat, each lady was presented wilh a homemade  heart-shaped candy-covered chocolate cake lo enjoy al home, and I  did.  Definitely a special-occasion place, the Jolly Roger, for romantics and other friends, and I toast the 1988 Valentine's Night chef  and staff.

"Chinook salmon populations in the Georgia Strait are in  serious trouble." announced  Mike Staley, President of the  newly formed Chinook Foundation. "The sport catch alone  has dropped by over 200,000  since 1980," says Staley. "The  stock is down to a quarter of  what it was ten years ago." The  outlook is bleak. The numbers  of chinook salmon caught in  Georgia Strait and the number  of chinook returning to spawn  dropped again in 1987.  The Chinook Foundation is a  group of concerned sports  fishermen, guides, biologists  and conservationists who can  no longer stand by quietly while  the chinook salmon stocks continue their serious decline in the  Georgia Strait. The government  is bowing to pressure from lobbyists aginst effective fishing  regulations.  The chinook stocks are now  severely depressed due to overfishing. Biologists from the  Department of Fisheries and  Oceans (DFO) first began to  warn of problems with Georgia  Strait chinooks in 1977. "Rapid  declines in spawning runs coincided with large increases in  sport and troll fishing effort. In  1981 the combined sport and  troll catch was 484,000 chinook.  By 1985 the combined catch had  dropped to 290,000. The 1987  total stands at 167,000, a  decrease of over SO per cent in  six years. This is not just a temporary setback that will correct  itself naturally," says Staley of  the Chinook Foundation.  In 1980 the first of several  conservation measures were introduced by DFO to protect the  chinook. "In each case another  group quickly absorbed any fish  saved." says Staley as he lists  the unsuccessful measures implemented to control the  downspin of chinook stocks. In  1980 the gill net fishery for  chinooks was completely closed  in the Fraser River. In 1984 the  troll season was closed in the  early season. What a great year  1984 was for sports fishing,  369,000 fish as compared to  198,000 the year before!  In 1981 DFO accepted a  'seven point' program recommended by the Sport Fishing  Advisory Board. The 18 inch  size limit and other regulations,  as DFO biologists warned,  resulted merely in a shift in the  time the fish were caught.  Harvest rate estimates from tagging data confirmed the DFO  warning.  In 1985, Canada accepted a  275,000 total chinook catch  limit for the Georgia Strait in a  US/Canada treaty agreement.  The treaty was designed to help  rebuild chinook stocks along  the whole Pacific Coast.  Further regulations were imposed such as spot closures.  This was designed to protect the  tourist industry in the peak  tourist season. As DFO predicted, the fish were only protected for a short while in the  closed area, then were subjected  to heavy fishing pressure when  fishermen flocked to each area  as it reopened.  The hatchery contribution  stabilized before the decline at  eight to twelve per cent of the  total. It has remained at that  level through the decline, in  spite of substantial increased  hatchery releases of young  chinook. Hatchery production  did not save the day as predicted  by some optimists.  The evidence is compelling,  according to Mr. Staley. The  data may contain some inaccuracies but the overall trend is  obviously indicative of a  disastrous situation for our  chinook salmon. It is time for  all groups of fishermen to  reduce the catch for the next  few critical years. The question  is how to reduce the catch with  minimum economic damage  now, not whether to reduce the  catch in specific areas.

One hundred  members attended the annual  general meeting on January 21  and elected, by acclamation, the  new slate of officers as follows:  President, Freeman Reynolds;  Vice-President, Barry Reeves;  Secretary, Majorie Ross;  Treasurer, Guy Lewell. The  Board of Directors consists of  Ken White, Art Clarke, Peter  Gordon, Bill Boragno, Stewart  Lefeaux, Bill McKinnon and  Roy Scarr.  Tom Milstead, retiring president, proposed increases in the  initiation fees and in the annual  dues. After some discussion  both proposals were passed.  Also proposed was the freezing  of the seniors discount. Senior  players Bernie Parker and  Lome Blain eloquently objected  to this cut, citing the many  volunteer jobs done by seniors,  which has saved the club  thousands of dollars over the  years. This motion was  defeated.  Do you enjoy a game of  bridge? The first and third  Saturdays of the month is  bridge time at the club. Time is  7:30, $5 a couple. All are  welcome.

CHAIRMAN  is still with us, but as warmer,  brighter days come to charge up  our gardening interests again,  each of us has to decide what  new and old gardening goals we  will have. We can make a plan  on paper, as a guide for planting areas, study catalogues for  early selection, and wandering  around the garden on a sunny  day in January or February will  point to seasonal jobs, in spite  of it still being the close season  for most plants.  The best gardening ideas, and  the most useful, are ones that  save you work and time, while  producing the highest yields of  flavourful, nutritious organic  (no pesticides) vegetables.  Get some books from the  library or join a garden club, to  improve your knowledge and  understanding of Mother  Nature, thus helping yourselves  physically, mentally and  therapeutically.  It's time to spray the fruit  trees with lime-sulphur and  prune apple and pear trees,  weather permitting. If peach  trees are showing signs of  bursting, spray with a copper or  sulphur fungicide to ward off  leaf curl.  11th ANNUAL  APRIL  FOOLS'  RUN  from Gibsons  to Sechelt  "For the FUN of it!"  21 km  Start: The Sunnycrest Mall, Gibsons  Finish: Sechelt Cenotaph  RACE DAY SCHEDULE  8:30-9:15 am - Packet Pick-up and Late Registration  9:20 - Report to Start  9:30 - Start  - Includes T-Shirt, Refreshments & Draw Prizes  PRE-REGISTER BY MARCH 30th TO GET T-SHIRT  $2.00 - Late Registration (after Mar. 30 and on Race Day)  and those not wanting a T-Shirt  For More Information Call Cam Mackenzie 886-9137  ENTRY FEE  [Sunday, April lOthi  9:30 ami  Sponsored By B & D Sports & Coast News  .

It was  highlighted by a socko version  of You've Lost That Loving  Feeling, in.tandem with Kathi  Macdonald, and a fine rendition of Baldry's old hit, Don't  Lay No Boogie Woogie On The  King Of Rock And Roll.  The show ended to wild and  well deserved applause.  Local musician, Bob Carpenter and myself returned to the  dressing room and talked further with Long John. He told us  he is seriously thinking of buying a house in Gibsons. We all  parted congenially.  All in all, an excellent night.

It  was called Pennies From  Heaven and it was like nothing I  had ever seen before. The film  dealt with the misadventures of  a sheet-music salesman in  I930's England. The plot twists  were utterly bizarre and major  characters burst into lip-  synched song at totally incongruous moments. Bob Hos-  kins, who has since become a  major star, played the harrassed  salesman with savvy and sly  humour.  Pennies From Heaven was an  offbeat tour-de-force, that won  its ingenious creator, Dennis  Potter, much critical acclaim. It  was subsequently made into a  big budget American film starring Steve Martin but, like many  other such adaptations, a good  deal was lost in the translation.  Now, almost a decade later,  Dennis Potter has unveiled an  even more imaginative and ambitious project. Entitled The  Singing Detective, it employs  many of the same surreal  devices that made Pennies From  Heaven so unique. But The  Singing Detective carries these  techniques much further. Twice  as long as its predecessor, the six  hour mini-series smashes  through the parameters of traditional television, breaking new  ground and most of the established rules, taking risks, going  (to paraphrase the rallying cry  of Star Trek) where no small  screen production has gone  before.  The Singing Detective is not  an easy show to summarize in a  few paragraphs. To avoid utter  confusion, it should be watched  from the beginning. Essentially,  it employs three separate but  related storylines that twist in  and out of each other like  snakes. The whole complex  structure is stitched together by  a succession of old popular  songs, that frequently trigger  the transitional breaks.  The 'now' or present of the  story takes place in an English  hospital ward. Phillip Marlow,  a former mystery story writer, is  undergoing treatment for a  painful and gruesomely disfiguring skin disease. Understandably, Marlow (wonderfully  played in grotesque makeup by  Shakespearean actor, Michael  Gambon) is a bitterly unhappy  man. To relieve the tedium and  discomfort of his demeaning  situation, Marlow spends much  of his time fantasizing.  In his mind, Marlow is rewriting a pulp-style novel he  wrote years before, called The  I  School District No. 46 (Sunshine Coast)  FRENCH IMMERSION  REGISTRATION  Parents who wish their children to enroll in the  grade one Early French Immersion program are  invited to register for the 1988-89 school year.  In the event that registration exceeds class size limits,  students will be registered on a "first come, first served"  basis, with preference given to those who have siblings  already   registered in the program.  Parents are asked to register their children  AT THE SCHOOL.  Those unable to do so should contact the school  to make alternate arrangements.

When   he  transposes himself into this fictional world, Phillip Marlow  the bed-ridden invalid, becomes  Phillip Marlow, band leader  and private eye, a suave world  weary character in true Raymond Chandler tradition, also  played io the hill by Michael  Gambon. He has been engaged  to solve the mysterious murder  of a prostitute. These segments  have all the elements of traditional crime drama. Rainy midnight streets, smokey dives,  painted tarts and sinister  villains, tinged with surreality al  every turn.  When he is nol coping wilh  hospital traumas or stalking the  night as a fictional gumshoe,  Ihe tormented Marlow relives  his confusing war lime boyhood  in a small mining village on the  Welsh border. These less than  idyllic childhood scenes form  the third storyline. We begin lo  Arrests  at ferry  by Ken Collins  Local RCMP moved swiftly  to prevent two men from leaving the Coast following an  assault last Thursday evening.  A residence wilhin the  jurisdiction of the Sechelt  detachment was broken into  and an occupant assaulted. The  police quickly contacted the  B.C. Ferry Corporation and  asked them to be on ihe lookout  for a van of a certain make and  colour.  Sure enough, the van carrying two male occupants was lined up in the Langdale ferry terminal waiting to board the 8:30  boat for Vancouver.  "Suddenly there were cops all  over the place!" said one  eyewitness. The police surrounded the van and ihe  suspects were arrested with no  resistance.  The two men are facing  charges of robbery and are  scheduled for court today.  learn about the forces that  shaped Marlow and led to ihe  cynical tormented man in the  hospital bed.

Kennel!  There is nothing like an old  fashioned graveside service to  make you think of the little  things in life as the words of  Dennis Morgan, in his fatherly  vestments, came forth at the  grave "she has gone to another  room, we will meet again".  For Nan Reeves, the battle of  life was over and we, a couple  of dozen relatives and friends  with umbrellas at the slope paid  our last respects.  Her son Laurie beside me at  the head of the casket, promp-  School building saved  by Myrtle Winchester  On Wednesday evening,  February 17, Ihe Pender Harbour Lioness Club held Iheir  firsl meeting and polluck dinner  in Iheir new den, now to be  known as Ihe Irvine's Landing  School Heritage Hall.  The club has leased the old Irvine's Landing School, at the  corner of Irvine's Landing  Road and Holel Lake Road in  Pender Harbour, from the  School Board for $1 a year, and  plans io restore it as a Heritage  Building. The building had been  slated for demolition.  Presidenl Mary (aka  Madeira) Richardson led discussion of plans for the old  schoolhouse, including acquisition of 'museum kinds of  things', a wood-burning stove  like Ihe original one from the  school and the old school bell.  Ann Cook presented an attractive calendar of Vancouver  scenery lo decorate the new  Lioness clubhouse and Hazel  Sprall won ihe Chinese Auction.  Renovations by the Lioness  Club and volunteers have  already started, including  removal of drywall sheets that  revealed ihe original school  chalkboards and two walls of  varnished woodwork in  beautiful condition.  The club has boarded up the  windows of the building, temporarily, until a net is replaced  around the neighbouring tennis  court to prevent stray balls from  breaking more windows.  After the school was closed,  the building served as the  Irvine's   Landing  Community  Hall, and many dances, bingos  and other community events  were held Ihere until the poor  state of repair of the building  forced closure.  Former students, teachers  and fans of the old Irvine's Landing School are asked to contact  the Lioness Club if they can  provide any history or  photographs of the building.  ted me to whisper how we used  to pick huckleberries and  brambles as kids, and his  response was how 'Mom baked  them into pies'. I thought too  how I helped him with his  homework and how he couldn't  abide anyone looking over his  shoulder as he once said, "1 used to get rapped over the  knuckles for writing left-handed  in my early school days in  Calgary."  At the foot of the casket my  eyes lifted to Dick Reeves, now  widowed, looking ever so much  the country squire in his tweed  hat. He was intent on the words  of the minister next to him and I  mused how much he reminded  me of his father, Arthur  Richard Reeves, the once  renowned artisan of such a fine  estate with prize winning  flowers and gardens. I still  remember him saying that Lilies  of the Valley are always out for  mother's day and would I like  to send some in a shoe box to  my mother in Regina. That was  50 years ago and we did.  My eyes now wandered  around the semi-circle of  mourners to Nan's brother,  Charlie Harris, and I thought of  the times he used to play the old  pump organ in St. Bartholomew's, occasionally sitting in  for our long time organist  George Lockett, when I was a  choir boy. I later said to him,  "are you still married to that  lovely girl you were courting  some 50 years ago?" and he  said, "Here she is Dick."  Nearing the end of the service  I gazed down at my rain-sodden  shoes almost touching the  headstone of Laurie's grandmother, his almost touching the  headstone of his grandfather  Harris, known well to both of  us when we were youngsters.  But the beauty of it all was  that Laurie's mother was about  to be tiered or should I say  bosomed to her mother's grave  below, beside her father and  heavenly Father above.  And the rains kept coming  over Mountain View Cemetery,  the city and north shore mountains shrouded in mist, as  Frances Rose Reeves was laid to  rest.  Before taking my leave, Dick  Reeves and I exchanged  thoughts with he saying "Nan  would love knowing you were  here", and I responded saying  "I wouldn't have missed it for  all the world, she brought light  to my life when I was a  teenager".  God! How she could make  pies.  Sechelt wants sewer system  The Municipal District of  Sechelt may be interested in taking over the sewer system within  its new expanded boundaries,  Alderman Bob Wilson told a  meeting of the regional district's  Public Utilities Commission last  Thursday. His comments were  made when a letter from consulting engineers, Dayton and  Knight, was received by the  committee.  In the letter, Dayton and  Knight commented on the  Sechelt Sewer System Study  which was done in 1986.  The report identifies the  regional board's incorporation  of (he Sechelt system into the  regional system as an  'anomaly'. Dayton and Knight  do not agree.  ANGLICAN CATHOLIC  CHURCH OF CANADA  ST.

The sale is run by a  committee of the Gulf Islands  Arts Council, and this year will  be paying two cashiers, a  manager, assistant manager and  a bookkeeper to handle Ihe sale.  Neish described some of the  struggles over the years, and  some of the policy decisions  lhat have been made lo make  Artcraft a financially successful  operation. He invited members  of the committee to visit and see  first-hand how it operates.

Missing  Newfie  by Rose Nicholson  Have you seen a large black  Newfoundland dog whose name  is Christmas Rose, but answers  lo Chrissie?  Chrissie is a very unusual  dog. She is pari of the new Pel  Visitation Program al Evergreen Lodge at Lion's Gale  Hospital, and she disappeared  from Ihe Whytecliffe home of  her owners, Dr. Baker Thomas  and Dr. Thomas, on Sunday,  February 14 between 6:30 and  7:30 pm.  Chrissie and her brother  Harlequin, who is known as  Harley, are the backbone of ihe  project. As well as being  disturbed at the loss of a family  pet, the Thomases say that  Chrissie's absence will seriously  affect the project as her gentle  and affectionate nature made  her very good at her 'job'.  Dr. Thomas told the Coast  News lhal they fear Chrissie has  been stolen, as she has never  before strayed from their property. The Thomases have a  home in Pender Harbour and  are appealing to coast residents  to keep an eye out for Chrissie,  on the off chance that she may  have been brought here.  She is a 14 month old black  Newfoundland, has a while  blaze on her chest and weighs  just over IOO pounds. If you  have any information, please  contact the Coast News.

Letters to the Editor  ���  A move from consumer to conserver  Editor:  So far in the debate over the  Mulroney trade deal, few have  commented publicly on the  broad ecological concerns raised  by this deal and the General  Agreement on Tariffs and  Trade (GATT).  Free trade is premised on  massive economic growth. Il  could only be of benefit to ihe  producers in one counlry if ihe  public in Ihe other increases  consumption. For example,  Americans would have to con  sume as much as they are now,  plus all the goods Canadian  business wants to sell them, and  vice versa.  Continued economic growth  in the first world is no longer  realistic. Resources are not infinite, the planet is a closed  system. We can only go on expanding our continental  economy at the further social  and ecological expense of the  Third World. Already, North  Americans account for about 40  per cenl of the annual world  consumption of primary  resources with only 5.5 percent  of world population.  Both free trade and the  GATT will further encourage  the movement of vast amounts  of material around the planet.  This mostly unnecessary transportation wastes precious  energy and contributes greatly  to worldwide pollution.  International trade deals are  creating a global, headless  monster economy, which searches only for cheap resources  Government is the villain  Editor:  The protesters ai Strathcona  Provincial Park on Vancouver  Island arc fighting lo preserve  BC's parklands from being  decimated by mining companies. They deserve the support of ihe public.  The real villain is Ihe Socred  governmenl. One of Ihe first  acts of the Vander Zalm  government was lo pass an  order in January 1987, changing the long-standing policy lo  allow mining and forestry in  provincial parklands. In an  order announced by Ihe Ihen-  govemmenl and parks minister, Stephen Rogers, the  designation of parklands was  changed to 'recreational areas'  allowing mining companies lo  work Iheir claims with cabinet  approval.  Earmarked for mining ac-  livilies arc not only Strathcona  Park, bul also several olher  provincial parks including  Manning, Tweedsmuir and  Kokanee Glacier. There are  reports thai mining companies  have claims in many olher  parklands including North  Vancouver's watershed. This  legislation was pari of Vander-  Zalm's new policy of catering  to ihe private sector. Ii was a  direct sellout of ihe public's interests lo the large mining and  forest companies.  If the mining companies,  which have 231 mining claims  in Strathcona Park arc allowed  lo gel away with it, mining and  logging will follow in oilier BC  parks. The bailie over Strathcona Park is therefore nol only  of local interest, bul an issue  lhat affects all of us who wanl  to preserve parklands for the  pleasure of the public and for  future generations.  The public should demand  lhal the cabinet rescind the  order allowing mining in  Strathcona Park and that the  January 1987 order permitting  mining and logging in public  parks, be cancelled. All charges  against Ihe protesters at  Slralhcona Park should be  dropped.  The   Socred   governmenl  must   be   compelled   to   put  public inleresl before the profits of mining corporations.  Maurice Rush, BC Leader  Communist Party of Canada  Unanswered question  Editor:  Fifty-five years is a long time  to let a question go unanswered  and it taunts me lo Ihis day.  My father back in the 1930's  obtained a crown gram of 15  acres on North Road, subject to  him doing $125 in improvements each year for four years,  in order lo get title or crown  grant as it was implied.  In short order, war was waged with the stumps and clearing  an area for a collage and  garden. I was 12 al the time and  much to our surprise, we made  an unusual discovery.  Nestled in the bush al the  northwesl corner of Ihe properly was a neatly appointed split  cedar rail fence enclosure and  four cedar crosses marking  graves. Judging from the  weathering of the cedar, we  assumed the enclosure to be at  least 15 years old.  Was this property originally  slat ;cl to be a cemetery even  before the first cemetery al Ihe  base of Mount Elphinstone?  Did ihe crosses actually mark  human remains buried there, or  were they markers for another  purpose?  We asked nearby pioneers at  Ihe time, Andy Wilander, Ellen  Cook (Kayto) and George  Locketl, bul no one could shed  light on ihis dark secret, if in  fact it was a secret.  Over the years the property  went from my father to Bert  and Frances Cator, then Ernie  Reitz, but the question still  haunts me all ihese years.  Perhaps one day before 1 pass  this way a final time, I will find  the answer.  Richard F. Kennell  Seal campaign success  Editor:  On behalf of Ihe British Columbia Lung Association, I wish  lo exlend a mosl sincere thank  you to your newspaper, your  readers, and regional Christmas  Seal chairperson Clara Nygren,  of Gibsons, for the generous  support given lo the 1987  Christmas Seal Campaign.  The Campaign officially ended January 31 with donations  reaching $1,031,262 province-  wide, a three percent increase  over Ihe projected goal of $1  million. Contributors from the  Sunshine Coast area were  directly responsible for $8312.  Moneys raised through Ihe  Christmas Seal Campaign help  fund lung disease research,  public and professional educa  tion programs, school programs'  promoting lung heallh among  children, and awareness campaigns highlighting the harmful  effects of air pollution, tobacco  use and occupational respiratory hazards.  Again, thank you all very  much.  Maurice Cownden  Presidenl  Don't Pay Double Tax...  SHOP LOCALLY  Part of every dollar you spend  goes to pay for community services and  benefits...wherever you shop.  When you shop at home in your local stores, part of your dollars go to pay tax-supported  services and benefits at home. If you shop in some other city you pay for those services and  benefits there.  The worst part is that when you shop out of town you still have to pay your share of those  services at home too.  Don't double up your expenses... Shop at home.  Keep part of the dollars you spend...  SHOP LOCALLY  and labour. Ii is because no one  is being held responsible for Ihe  social and ecological crises lhal  consumer goods are apparently  'cheap'.  We need, instead, io build  sustainable, jusi, diversified,  and locally controlled economies. We should be producing  as much as possible of whal we  consume in our own region.  Lei's move more ideas and  lechnologies and less material  goods around ihe planel.  If we are lo avert global environmental disaster, it is now a  matter of when, not if, we move  from Ihe consumer society lo  the conserver society.  Murray Gudmundson  Speaker, Green Parly of B.C.  Good  viewing  Editor:  Through the medium of your  newspaper I should like lo express appreciation lo Coast  Cable Vision for some of the  fine viewing made available on  the local channel recenlly.  Some programs lhat appealed  were the sessions with local  municipal (elected) personnel.  This 'open governmenl' type of  program should be required  viewing for all voters and taxpayers.  I was impressed also wilh Ihe  sludenl interview with the  young man (Gales) from the  U.N. concerning aid io the  Third World. If there were  more young people of Ihis  calibre laking an interest in  Ihese mailers, many of ihe  world's problems would be  solved in Iwo or three genera-  lions.  Over Ihe past year there has  been considerable growth in the  handling of ihe technical aspects  of Ihe production. The selling,  lighting, sound, elc. I don'l  know who funds or selects Ihe  topics, but it's becoming more  and more interesting.  Nina K. Smith  .. .

This upcoming general meeling of Ihe Sunshine Coast  Liberal Association will feature a question and answer session  with Gordon Wilson, B.C.'s new Liberal Leader.  The Sunshine Coasl Liberal Association looks forward to a  lively discussion. Refreshments will be served.  Sechell council has failed to  endorse the Sechelt Inlet Study,  Phase Two which is being pursued by the Foreshore Advisory  Task Force. The terms of  reference and Ihe application to  the provincial government for  funding were presented lo council lasl week, but the next evening, Gordon Wilson reported lo  the Planning Committee of the  Sunshine Coasl Regional  Dislrict (SCRD) thai council  would not fully endorse the  study.  The SCRD will be sending  the applicalion anyway, and  Gordon Wilson hoped lo meel  wilh Sechell mayor Bud Koch  lo discuss Sechell's participation  in the study. He will also be approaching the Sechelt Indian  Band to ask for their involvement .  The study is a main focus for  ihe Foreshore Advisory Task  Force, and Wilson said lhal  with Sechell's refusal lo be a  partner in the endeavour, ihe  Iwo citizens groups which are  represented on Ihe task force,  "should turn lo the municipal  dislricl to address Iheir concerns." He also staled that their  positions on Ihe lask force may  be redundant.  Wilson was obviously frustrated by Sechelt's conlinued  refusal to cooperate on the  Sechell Inlet Study. "I find il  ironic," he said, "thai an enormous amount of critiquing has  been done on both phases of the  Sechell Inlet Study and its funding. And at the same time we  have ihe Minister of State come  here and agree to match funds  for a canal sludy, without any  terms of reference, and later he  has lo ask how much it's going  to cost."  Discussion of Ihe study was  followed by a request from  Sechell thai the regional district  give a clear statement of their  position on Ihe gravel extraction  project which is being undertaken by ihe Sechelt Indian  Band and Sechelt Aggregates  Inc.  In response, Area E director  Jim Gurney pointed out lhat the  board has made their position  clear many limes. "We are nol  in the position lo regulate gravel  extraction on crown land," he  said. "We dealt wilh this two  years ago when we met with the  Band and expressed our concerns aboul noise and air pollution and we were lold that our  concerns would be laken Into  consideration."  Mayor Koch had also re-  quesled a clear statement on  whether or not (he regional  board supports a canal study,  but directors insisted that il was  impossible lo make that decision until they have Ihe terms of  reference of the study.  The Planning Committee  voted to recommend lhal the  regional board forward Ihese  comments to the Municipal  District of Sechelt.

NDP researches fish-farming  Continued from page I  and has recently established  themselves locally and applied  iheir technology to aquaculture.  As well as supplying local  farms, they are looking lo  marketing iheir equipment in  Japan where ihey hope il will be  manufactured under license.  Gnu and Smallwood also  viewed Oppdrelt Service  Canada Ltd. who supply Viking  Pacific seacage systems and  then il was lime for ihem to  meet with Ihe Chief and Council  of Ihe Sechelt Indian Band.  "If you had a message lo  send back with us, whal would  il be?" asked Smallwood to  band representatives.  "Environment," was the  answer. "Clear up those  unknowns first. Do thai study  and find oul what the impact is.  We   have   a   cultural    and  economic slake. We don'l wanl  lo see short term gain and long  term pain."  Smallwood and Gnu asked  about lasl November's red lide  in ihe area.  "Some of ihe elders were  very concerned about lhal  because il has never happened  before," said Chief Tom Paul.  The band explained lhat their  experience has shown every  stream lo produce a genetically  suited fish for lhat specific  stream alone.  The MLA's ihen look an  airplane lour of some of the  farms along the coast before  spending an hour or two with  ORCA leader Mac Richardson.  Richardson is completely opposed to water based fish farms  and can see no good in them  whal-so-ever.  According lo Richardson,  aquaculture will wipe oul ihe  wild fish and destroy our environment. Al present he is trying lo align himself with similar  organizations in Alaska and Ihe  Pacific Northwest. "The only  way lhal 1 can see we can defend ourselves is to form a big  group and organize a boycott of  ihe product," is the message  Richardson lold the Coast News  he is telling fraternal American  organizalions.  Then it was time to hear the  aquaculturists' story at a  modest dinner hosted by the  aquaculture association.  "From our perspective the industry is nothing bul good,"  staled representatives. "Much  of ihe negative has been based  on ignorance and lack of  knowledge."

According to aquaculturists,  Canadian banks wouldn't touch  ihem and Norwegian companies  came in offering easy terms.  "Whal aboul lack of regulations?" asked Smallwood.  "There are 21 tests and  licenses we have lo go  through," was the answer.  "Yes, we arc concerned  aboul pollution," the fish  farmers said and pointed out  lhat massive pollution coming  oul of Ihe Fraser River was  perhaps Ihe greatest threat to  everyone. They said lhal Ihey  would welcome environmental  studies because ihey would be  the first io be hurl from en-  vironmental damage.  "Yes, we do have a 40 percenl mortality rate," ihey said  bul pointed oul that a very  minute percentage of wild fish  ever reached adulthood.  "Will farm salmon escape  and swim up the streams only to  weaken the genetic pool of the  wild slock?" was anolher question.  Nobody knows bul Ihe fish  farmers did poinl oul lhal  escaped farm salmon have been  known to swim back lo their  pens and thai Ihere had been a  futile attempt years ago to introduce ailaniic salmon io the  coasl.  And on il went. At ihe conclusion, Smallwood asked the  same question everyone during  the day had been asked, "Whal  can we do for you?"  "Conlinued and increased  funding for research and  assistance to guaranleed loans  so we can gel funding," was ihe  response. "We aren't looking  for handouts, but we need to gel  Canadian financing."  "Do you wanl environmental  studies," asked Smallwood.  "Certainly," they replied.  In an interview the following  morning Ihe Coast News asked  ihe MLA's if ihey would be  looking al common ground  ralher than exploiting differences.  "We will be looking at common areas," staled Smallwood.  "If B.C. is the last frontier Ihey  have forgotten about the ocean.
